Death and Resurrection
The wages of sin is death. But God, who alone is immortal, will grant eternal life to His redeemed. Until that day death is an unconscious state for all people. When Christ, who is our life, appears, the resurrected righteous and the living righteous will be glorified and caught up to meet their Lord.
The second resurrection, the resurrection of the unrighteous, will take place a thousand years later. (Romans 6:23, 1 Timothy 6:15-16, Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, Psalm 146:3-4, John 11:11-14, Colossians 3:4, 1 1 Corinthians 15:51-54, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, John 5:28-29, Revelation 20:1-10) "Death may be the most misunderstood subject in the world today. To many it is enshrouded in mystery and evokes feelings of fear, uncertainty, and even hopelessness. Others believe their loved ones who have died are not dead at all, but instead live in other places under varied conditions.
Most world religions teach that the dead become spirits or ghosts. Does it really matter? Yes, immeasurably so. The Bible says that people who misunderstand the subject of death will almost assuredly be deceived by the Devil on other issues including the final Battle of Armageddon. "For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty." Revelation 16:14
