    Also very well paired with 1 Corinthians 15 chapter. We are with the Lord after he returns, and the hope for our beloved that have died in Christ is in the return of Christ and the resurrection of the dead.

    (25) Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
    (26) Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
    Indeed. And I don't doubt that Moses will be one of those that is resurrected in the first resurrection. I'm not as sure about some of the folks that left Egypt with him. Even though:
    [1Co 10:4 ESV] and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ.


    Because:
    [1Co 10:5 ESV] Nevertheless, with most of them God was not pleased, for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
    [1Co 10:6 ESV] Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did.
    [1Co 10:7 ESV] Do not be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, "The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play."


    I'm just saying that God seems to make a distinction in this life, based on how we act. He seems to want to test us sometimes to determine if we really are committed to Him. And perhaps He accomplishes all the testing that He needs before we die, and then He knows whether we are truly His by that time.

    But it seems that some will fail that test. We cling to the intercession of Jesus Christ, but are there those that do so unworthily? In other words, claiming His name, but not backing it up? Matt 25

    Thank you again for your contribution to this thread. It is very much appreciated. I want to be open to what the word has to say, even if it says that some of them or (even) us will die. For example, you will not all sleep.

    The test that I have spoken of is 2 Corinthians 13:5
    Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?

    What do you think the test is? your reference speaks of it, but not what it is.

    Might this be relevant? "Test" and "trial" are close synonyms.

    1 Peter 1:7 KJV
    (7) That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

    Revelation 3:18-19 KJV
    (18) I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
    (19) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    Except that it is hard to "examine yourself" with a trial by fire that is God's chastening.

    I certainly wonder what the state of people not seemingly tried by fire will be. That includes most of North American Christians, including myself. I trust in Christ's sacrifice, and find my hope in His resurrection, but is other testing necessary? Maybe we are like the guy who only gets 1 talent--not much testing.

    Matthew 25:37 KJV
    (37) Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

    1 John 4:20-21 KJV
    (20) If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
    (21) And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

    It may be that if Christ is in you you pass the test.

    No man can come to God except through Christ. (Jn. 14:20)
    No man can come to Christ unless he comes through the Cross. (Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:1318)
    No man can come to the Cross without a denial of self. (Lk. 9:2324)

    (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

    John 8:24 KJV
    (24) I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    There are two different messages there: "you shall die" and "you shall not die." One of those is truthful and one is a lie. Be careful of which side you support.

    Even the parable of Lazarus says that he died. It does not say he was alive" neither he, nor the rich man nor Abraham are alive: they are figures in a colorful story. And have you ever considered why everyone in that story is specifically named except the rich man? Why does he have five brothers? Why are we told so many other details about him?
    No, they did die. The problem is that we in modern times only think of death as physical. Death is not annihilation. Life continues on eternally as the Bible says the body goes back to where it came from (dust) and the life goes back to the one who gave it (God).

    So, Abraham responding to the man asking for a drop of water to be placed in his tongue while burning in hell means that they are dead and you answer like Alexa when asked "Alexa who is Jesus Christ?" and Alexa answers, "Jesus Christ is a fictional character."

    The man did not want his five brothers to come and visit him in his place of LIVING torment.
    Now, you want to be like Alexa, that's your freedom of choice to do so.
    No man can come to God except through Christ. (Jn. 14:20)
    No man can come to Christ unless he comes through the Cross. (Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:1318)

    our bodies will die but our spirits continue on Luk 16:22-23
    and our spirits will either continue on with God or still separated from God after our bodies die

    Luk 23:43 And Jesus said to him, Truly I say to you, Today you will be with Me in Paradise.

    separated from God before death. = Mat 8:22 And Jesus said to him, "Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead."

    people who had faith before Jesus died went to Abraham's side & unbelievers to Hades

    Luk 16:22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried,
    Luk 16:23 and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side.

    the criminal from Luk 23:43 is with God ,Jesus will bring him with him when he returns.
    1Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

    and the rich man from Luk 16:22-23 will be raised up from hades where his spirit is today
    Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done.

    I know that if a person dies, it is an individual who died. I am unfamiliar with body and spirit being separated.
