    Followers of Jesus......when we die our Spirit goes back to God and our body and soul die our fleshly death right? So do we actually sleep with our body and soul until Christ comes back, or if our Spirit goes back to God are we with Him when we die? So do we die from our flesh and are in alive in Spirit with Him....or actually sleep and have no recollection of it while we wait for Jesus??

    The bible is pretty clear. It simply doesn't teach that we go to Heaven when we die. It consistently teaches in the OT and the NT that we 'sleep' in our grave until we are raised up at the last day or later at Judgement Day

    We wait for Christ in Sleep called death, then rise from the graves at the resurrection, the resurrection is called the Day of the Lord and also the Coming of Christ.

    1Th 4:16     For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    1Th 4:17     Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    Jhn 5:28      Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

    Jhn 5:29     And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
