What are the conditions of the dead?


 THE FOLLOWING VERSES state the condition of the dead:

(1) He shall never return, nor shall his place know him anymore:

“As the cloud disappears and vanishes away, So he who goes down to the grave does not come up. He shall never return to his house, Nor shall his place know him anymore. ‘Therefore I will not restrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.” (Job 7:9-11, NKJV)

(2) He remembers no more:

“Adrift among the dead,  Like the slain who lie in the grave,  Whom You remember no more, And who are cut off from Your hand.” (Psalms 88:5, NKJV)

(3) His thoughts perish:

“His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.” (Psalms 146:4, KJV)

(4) They know nothing:

“For the living know that they will die; But the dead know nothing, And they have no more reward, For the memory of them is forgotten.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5, NKJV)

(5) Nevermore will they have a share in anything done under the sun:

“For the living know that they will die; But the dead know nothing, And they have no more reward, For the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished; Nevermore will they have a share In anything done under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, NKJV)

(6) The dead lies on his grave “till the heaven are no more” or until the Day of Judgment:

“But man dies and is laid away; Indeed he breathes his last And where is he? As water disappears from the sea, And a river becomes parched and dries up, So man lies down and does not rise. Till the heavens are no more, They will not awake Nor be roused from their sleep.” (Job 14:10-12 NKJV)

“But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.” (II Peter 3:7, 10, NKJV)
