Do We Go to Sleep When We Die or Straight to Heaven?
Your brain goes woolly, your limbs feel like lead, and the smallest mishaps make you intensely cranky. Potentially yes, says University of Sydney sleep researcher Nathaniel Marshall, but in the short term, only indirectly. While sleep is important to human health and can affect your mood and wellbeing, there's no good evidence being sleep deprived can directly kill you, Dr Marshall says. A report found deaths a year in Australia were caused by motor vehicle or workplace injuries linked with inadequate sleep. A lack of sleep played a role in a number of significant industrial accidents , including the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine and the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. Those who drive after being awake for 17 hours have been found to have impaired coordination, judgment, and reaction times equivalent to those with a blood alcohol level of 0. But chronic lack of sleep affects our biology in other ways that might ultimately lead to our death.
The term katheudo occurs 22 times in the New Testament. The term is employed with reference to death in only one passage. The daughter of a Jewish synagogue ruler, whose name was Jairus, had died Mk. Christ was bidden to the place where the girl was. That the maiden actually was dead admits of no doubt.
The Body Sleeps, Not the Soul
Some people, even Christians, believe that upon the last breath and into death is basically a nap until Judgment. Revelation , The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Secondly, these folks that have died had not given an account, or a reason of what they had done yet in their lives. So why would they be sent to Hell without giving a reason of the actions that put them there? You must be forgiven in order to avoid death and Hell. Also, the final judgment was going to be held at a different time with everyone all together, not just a few at a time every day.
Yes, Christians can sometimes sincerely disagree on minor matters—although you should never forget that all Christians agree on those things that are really important, such as the divinity of Christ, His death on the cross for our salvation, His resurrection from the dead, and our hope of heaven. At some future time, we will be given new bodies, similar to the body Jesus had after His resurrection. But in the meantime, our souls are with the Lord, and we are fully conscious of being in His presence. He faced many dangers, and he knew that at any moment his life on earth could end. Never forget that we have hope of life after death for one reason: Jesus Christ removed the barrier between us and God—the barrier caused by sin. Is your hope in Him? If not, put your trust in Christ without delay.
