1 What Happens to Us When We Die? 1

2 What is the teaching of the Rich man and Lazarus? Notice why Jesus was using this story. 2

3 (Luke 16:31 NKJV) "But he said to him, 'If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.'" Notice why Jesus was using this story. 3

4 When Jesus rose from the dead, what did the Jewish leaders do? It sounds incredible, but it was true. 4

5 (Mat 28:12 NKJV) "When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, When Jesus rose from the dead, what did the Jewish leaders do? 5

6 (Mat 28:13 NKJV) saying, "Tell them, 'His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.'" When Jesus rose from the dead, what did the Jewish leaders do? 6

7 I don't believe Jesus told this story with the intent of teaching what happens to us when we die. When Jesus rose from the dead, what did the Jewish leaders do? 7

8 I don't believe Jesus told this story with the intent of teaching what happens to us when we die. 8

9 There is also the teaching of the souls under the altar. (Rev 6:9 NKJV) When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 9

10 There is also the teaching of the souls under the altar. (Rev 6:10 NKJV) And they cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth? 10

11 There is also the teaching of the souls under the altar. (Rev 6:11 NKJV) Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. 11

12 There is also the teaching of the souls under the altar. 1. It is symbolic! – Why are they under the altar? – They are obviously still dead: it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer 12

13 There is also the teaching of the souls under the altar. It is similar to Abels blood crying out. (Gen 4:10 NKJV) And He said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries out to Me from the ground. 13

14 A very common expression for death in the New Testament is to fall asleep. 14

15 A very common expression for death in the New Testament is to fall asleep. Jesus spoke of Lazarus as having fallen asleep when in fact, he had died. 15

16 Jesus spoke of Lazarus as having fallen asleep when in fact, he had died. (John 11:11 NKJV) "These things He said, and after that He said to them, "Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up. 16

17 Jesus spoke of Lazarus as having fallen asleep when in fact, he had died. (John 11: NKJV) Then His disciples said, "Lord, if he sleeps he will get well." {13} However, Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that He was speaking about taking rest in sleep. 17

18 Jesus spoke of Lazarus as having fallen asleep when in fact, he had died. (John 11:14 NKJV) Then Jesus said to them plainly, "Lazarus is dead." 18

19 The Bible speaks of Stephen falling asleep when he was killed. (Acts 7:59-60 NKJV) "And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." 19

20 The Bible speaks of Stephen falling asleep when he was killed. (Acts 7:60 NKJV) Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not charge them with this sin." And when he had said this, he fell asleep." 20

21 Paul describes King Davids death as he fell asleep. (Acts 13:36 NKJV) ""For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption;" 21

22 In the great resurrection chapter, Paul speaks of death as falling asleep. (1 Cor 15:20 NKJV) "But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 22

23 Again, Paul speaks of falling asleep as He writes to the church at Thessalonica (1 Th 4:15) "For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 23

24 Again, Paul speaks of falling asleep as He writes to the church at Thessalonica (1 Th 4:16) For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first." 24

25 Again, Paul speaks of falling asleep as He writes to the church at Thessalonica – How can we misunderstand that Paul is referring to death with the expression sleep, when in two verses he uses both expressions to describe the same thing? 25

26 Again, Paul speaks of falling asleep as He writes to the church at Thessalonica – Those who are asleep are clearly the dead in Christ. 26

27 Being asleep means we are unconscious. – Solomon stated it very emphatically 27

28 Solomon stated it very emphatically – (Eccl 9:5NKJV) "For the living know that they will die; But the dead know nothing, And they have no more reward, For the memory of them is forgotten. 28

29 Solomon stated it very emphatically – (Eccl 9:6 NKJV) Also their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished; Nevermore will they have a share In anything done under the sun." 29

30 We are asleep until the Lord wakes us up. John 5:28, "Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves [thats where they are!] will hear His voice [they will be awakened] 30

31 We are asleep until the Lord wakes us up. John 5:29, "and come forth; those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation." 31

33 What are the implications of death being a sleep? It explains a lot of things. How God alone has immortality. 33

34 How God alone has immortality. (1 Tim 6:16 NKJV) "who [that is God] alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen." 34

35 When the Lord comes back, the righteous will become immortal. (1 Cor 15:51-52 NKJV) "Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed; {52} in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 35

36 When the Lord comes back, the righteous will become immortal. (1 Cor 15:53-54 NKJV) {53} For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. {54} So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory."" 36

40 Now lets understand some terms that get misused. Man was given a soul, but no where does the Bible speak of God giving us an immortal soul. (Rom 6:23 NKJV) For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. 40
