What do you believe about life after death?

Theological question on FB: “What do you believe about life after death?”

Those who die having believed-trusted in Jesus Christ as Lord will be translated instantaneously into the presence of God subsequent to their last exhalation in the body (2 Corinthians 5:8) and they will, forever, live with God and serve Him in glory and peace (John 14:1-3; Revelation 22:3; 5:10; Matthew 19:28; 1 Corinthians 6:3; 2 Timothy 2:12; Revelation 20:6).

Those who die having rejected Jesus Christ as Lord for the mediation of their sin will, at their last exhalation, be translated into the realm Messiah calls Hades-Sheol/Torments (Luke16) and they will remain there in their disembodied spirit, fully conscious-aware, until the Judgment of the Condemned manifesting subsequent to the Millennial Reign of Messiah Jesus. At that time, they will be brought out of Hades-Sheol/Torments and receive a corrupted resurrected body of flesh (John 5:28-30) and stand in the Judgment of the Condemned before Jesus Christ (Revelation 20:11-15; Philippians 2:10-11).

The condemned will be adjudicated guilty for sin, their name will not be found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and they will be cast into the Lake of Fire and suffer commensurate with the sin committed in the body in Time and then die the “second death” and cease all existence and remembrance (Matthew 10:28; Matthew 16:26; Revelation 20:11-15).

Mankind will either deal with their sin while in the body in Time within the Age of Grace by trusting in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin – or – mankind will deal with their sin at Judgment in Eternity. God the Father is NOT going to permit unrepentant sin to enter His Kingdom (Revelation 21:27).
