Death, physical, Summary:

(1) Physical death is a consequence of sin Genesis 3:19 and the universality of death proves the universality of sin Romans 5:12-14.

(2) Physical death affects the body only, and is neither cessation of life nor of consciousness (See Scofield "Romans 5:12-45.5.14- :") . See Scofield "Romans 5:12-45.5.14- :". Revelation 6:9; Revelation 6:10.

(3) All physical death ends in the resurrection of the body. See "Resurrection" Job 19:25. (See Scofield "Job 19:25- :") .

(4) Because physical death is a consequence of sin, it is not inevitable to the redeemed Genesis 5:24; 1 Corinthians 15:51; 1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17.

(5) Physical death has for the believer a peculiar qualification. It is called "sleep," because his body may be "awakened" at any moment Philippians 3:20; Philippians 3:21; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18.

(6) The soul and spirit live, independently of the death of the body, which is described as a "tabernacle" (tent), in which the "I" dwells, and which may be put off 2 Corinthians 5:1-8; 1 Corinthians 15:42-44; 2 Peter 1:13-15.

(7) At the believer's death he is "clothed upon" with a "house from heaven" pending the resurrection of the "earthly house," and is at once "with the Lord." 2 Corinthians 5:1-8; Philippians 1:23; Luke 23:43.

As to the death of Christ, (See Scofield "Luke 23:43- :") .
