We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 New International Version
How can we go to Heaven if we are asleep?
Many Christians believe they will go to Heaven when they die.
I do not.
I believe when we die we will go to sleep as if going to bed at night. When Jesus returns He will waken us and take us to the most fantastic home called Heaven.
The reason why is because one time when I was young I had to have stitches for a bad cut. The doctor put the needle into a vein instead of the nerve. One minute we were talking, the next minute everything went into the darkest black. There was nothing, no joy or sorrow, no pain, just total blackness. I later learned that my heart had stopped for about five minutes and it took two doctors and two nurses to get my heart beating again.
Sorry, no out of body experience there.
When Jesus comes back again, the Christians who died will be going to Heaven first, then those who are alive and are Christians.
We will however be judged and rewarded according to the service we have preformed for Christ while here. That is a different judgment.
It is on the judgment day that those who were not and are not Christians will be judged and cast into hell into eternal torment.
But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Revelation 21:8 New International Version
"The national anthem of hell is, "I Did It My Way."" Peter Kreeft
