SHEOL KNOW! — The Truth about the Intermediate State (2015)
What happens to the soul & spirit of unsaved people when they die? This refers to anyone who has not experienced spiritual regeneration through the gospel, which includes Old Testament saints.
The Bible shows that the souls of these people go to (or went to) Sheol at the point of physical decease. Sheol in the Old Testament corresponds to Hades in the New Testament.
These souls will be resurrected from Sheol one day (Revelation 20:11-15), which is why Sheol/Hades is described as the “intermediate state” since it refers to the condition of unredeemed souls between physical death and later resurrection.
So what’s the state of souls in Sheol/Hades? Jesus’ story of the rich man and Lazarus, if taken literal, suggests a conscious state where people either hang out in bliss with father Abraham or suffer constant fiery torment hoping for a mere drop of water for relief. SHEOL KNOW is an honest and thorough examination of the Scriptures to determine the precise nature of Sheol/Hades.
Once you see what God’s Word FULLY SAYS on the subject from Genesis to Revelation and not just a single tale that Jesus told, you’ll see the truth and, as Jesus said, “the truth shall set you FREE.”
