here are some words fron the Ible.
7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
this is the breath of life that went trough our nostrils.Once the flesh is dead the spirits goes to the Father.
1Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,
2As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;
3All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;
4My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.
5God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.
this is the breath of life again.
12So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.
2 Peter 3:10
10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
3Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
here again death is sleep, every dead awaits the judgment,
12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
i sight this so.. there is nothing in between R AND X it is one of the other and that will be known at the time of the judgment. It is stated clearly "MY REWARD IS WITH ME". so the once that are dead will have to stay dead/sleep till the time comes.The once that are alive will be changes with the blink of an eye.
28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
There are expeption also, Jah will be done!!.
Saints that are of the first fruits will riseN from the dead,
52And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
profets like Henok, EliJah were never dead. they were carried off.
11And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.( 2 Kings 2:11)
9Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
So that is why i said what i said. The dead stays where they are unless they are called by the Most High.
27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
in book of Enoch/Henok
it is stated that the fallen angles thaught the childeren of earth about the heavens, magic and thing that belongs to the earth.
1. Moreover Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication ofmirrors,
1 and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and of all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered.
2. Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways.
3. Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and dividers of roots:
4. Armers taught the solution of sorcery;
5. Barkayal taught the observers of the stars;
6. Akibeel taught signs;
7. Tamiel taught astronomy;
8. And Asaradel taught the motion of the moon.
9. And men, being destroyed, cried out; and their voice reached to heaven.
Haile I selassie I Jah RastafarI Praise Jah when alive !!!!
