What Happens When We Die? Temporary to Permanent

< Back to Study Home Page


In Hades all souls wait until Judgment Day. 

All will be resurrected on JUDGMENT DAY, the just to eternity
 and the unjust to their 2nd death. (Revelation 2:11; 20:6)
New Jerusalem
– Eternal life with Christ and God. (Revelation 3:12)
2nd DEATH
– in the fire of Gehenna, apart from God for ever (Ezekiel 18:20)


On Judgment Day all souls will be resurrected in their carnal bodies. These bodies will then be transformed into celestial, eternal bodies. Those waiting in Tartarus go to their second death in the lake of fire forever, and those waiting in Paradise will go to their celestial dwelling to enjoy the glory of God forever! 

Your body will be changed in an instant. If you lived for Christ you will live in eternal bliss, but if you suffered in torments (Tartarus) you will go to your second death in the lake of fire.
(Rom 14:12, Mat 25:46, John 5:28-29; Revelation 21:8)
