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 "Habakkuk 2:5") . See Scofield "Luke 16:23". Revelation 6:9,10.
(3) All physical death ends in the resurrection of the body. See "Resurrection" Job 19:25. (See Scofield "I Corinthians 15:52") .
(4) Because physical death is a consequence of sin, it is not inevitable to the redeemed Genesis 5:24; I Corinthians 15:51,52; I 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 3:20,21; I 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 II Corinthians 5:1-8; I Corinthians 15:42-44; II 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." II Corinthians 5:1-8; Philippians 1:23; Luke 23:43.
