Chapter 32 - Of the State of Man After Death, and of the Resurrection of the Dead.

Section 1.) The bodies of men, after death, return to dust, and see corruption:(1) but their souls, which neither die nor sleep, having an immortal subsistence, immediately return to God who gave them:(2) the souls of the righteous, being then made perfect of holiness, are received into the highest heavens, where they behold the face of God, in light and glory, waiting for the full redemption of their bodies.(3) And the souls of the wicked are cast into hell, where they remain in torments and utter darkness, reserved to the judgment of the great day.(4) Beside these two places, for souls separated from their bodies, the Scripture acknowledgeth none.
(1) Ge 3:19; Ac 13:36 (2) Lk 23:43; Ecc 12:7 (3) Heb 12:23; 2Co 5:1,6,8; Php 1:23 with Ac 3:21; Eph 4:10 (4) Lk 16:23,24; Ac 1:25; Jude 6,7; 1Pe 3:19
------------------------------------
Section 2.) At the last day, such as are found alive shall not die, but be changed:(1) and all the dead shall be raised up, with the self-same bodies, and none other (although with different qualities), which shall be united again to their souls for ever.(2)
(1) 1Th 4:17; 1Co 15:51,52 (2) Job 19:26,27; 1Co 15:42-44
------------------------------------
Section 3.) The bodies of the unjust shall, by the power of Christ, be raised to dishonour: the bodies of the just, by His Spirit, unto honour; and be made conformable to His own glorious body.(1)
(1) Ac 24:15; Jn 5:28,29; 1Co 15:43; Php 3:21

  • "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled." ~ (Rev 6:9-11)
