I think you go into a thing just like we are in now. But here there's other people there trying to change there life point they can move on. It looks just like this world but you can go back and forth.
As the Catechism says, death puts an end to human life as the time open to either accepting or rejecting the divine grace manifested in Christ. In other words there are no opportunities to grow in holiness, no second chances. After we die we immediately stand before the judgement seat of Jesus and He will reward us based on how we have lived our lives, on how we have responded to the blessings and graces He gave us. This is called the particular judgement, because it refers to each of us individually. If we have died in the state of grace, we will go to Heaven or spend some time in purgatory. If we have died in a state of mortal sin, we will immediately go to Hell. Many of our culture are afraid of death. Why? Probably because they do not really grasp the meaning of life. We need to prepare ourselves for death by living our lives as Jesus calls us to, by loving Him with all our strength and loving our neighbors as ourselves. Many of the great saints longed for their time on earth to come to an end so that they could go home to be with the Lord. They were unafraid of death because they understood the purpose of life and lived it: They loved.
We fade away from the world. We have no thoughts no feelings no sight no sense. All we see is darkness. We lose our pain, our joy, our memories. From a religious point of view (Christian), depends on how our relationship with God is and how good you are in your life. Based on that, you will go to either Heaven or Hell. Even though I am Christian, I think about it a lot.
I'm a Seventh-Day Adventist, therefore, I believe that our souls will stay in the ground until the second coming of Jesus. Once he arrives, he'll judge us based on our hearts. We'll either go to heaven, or burn in fire, which causes eternal death. We don't believe in Hell lasting forever. When the light from heaven comes down, people who are not saved (including Satan) will burn by the heat of the light and die. The Bible mentions hell fire, but we believe that the word "hell" means "death" in the Bible. When they say "Eternal Hell", they mean "Eternal Death". Many details in the Bible support this belief.
1. My useful organs will be harvested for transplantation. 2. My remains will be sent to the forensic anthropology body farm at U.T.Knoxville. 3. My family and friends will mourn for a time. 4. The world will go on.
The Bible states that when we die, we "are conscious of nothing at all" (Ecclesiastes 9:5). Death is the opposite of life and we simply cease to exist. The soul does not keep living. As mentioned in Ezekiel 18:4, "The soul that is sinning-it itself will die."
The Bible states at Ecclesiastes 9:5 that the dead are concious of nothing and verse 10 adds there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol. At death we simply cease to exist. st.e ceasThe Bible offers ahope for the dead at John 5:28,29. Read it in your personal copy of the Bible and also go to www.jw.com for this and more answers to your questions.
Be careful of what "Bibles"you choose to find your answer! Some are not true translation. Some are interpritations, not true translations( read the front of the Bible that tells you about THAT translation! ) John Smith and Muhammed are not who you wish to look for. Multiple scolars from educated (hebrew-greek) backgrounds!

Ecclesiastes 9:5 says: 'For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.' Many may wonder though, if they will ever see there love one who has passed away in death, ever again? Acts 24:15 reassures us that, for those who have died, there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. So we will not only be able to see our dead love ones again, but under much better earthly conditions than what we see now. 2 Peter 3:13, Psalms 37;10, 11, 29.

After you die of the flesh, you will decay and everything; you will stay buried. Then, when its time for Jesus to come, we will have judgement day.Those who don't believe in Jesus will deal with the chaos that will happen, then they will be thrown in Hell including Satan; they won't have time to be saved. But, Jesus will rapture the church and those who believe in Jesus will enter the gates of Heaven. In heaven, there won't be any madness, chaos, weeping, murdering, health problems, etc. It will be all things GOOD. You will live eternal life, a new body (not in the flesh), but the spirit and in peace.
Ecclesiastes 9:5 tells us that "for the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten." So this scripture indicates that nothing happens to us after death. We're dead and conscious of nothing. It's also comforting because some religions teach that the dead can speak and hurt us. But this scripture proves that they don't.
Since nobody has come back from being dead I have to go by what the Bible says. It says that when you die you know nothing, can do nothing and have no memory. Ec. 9:5, 6. Many think that we have an immortal soul that goes on after we die but the Bible does not agree with this doctrine. The Bible says that God breathed the breath of life into Adam and he came to be a living soul. He was not given a soul but became one. Gen. 2:7. So when you die you are no more unless God resurrects you. The whole theme of the Bible is that God will restore the earth to the paradise he intended it to be in the first place. Then all who have died and remain in God's memory will be resurrected for a second chance to live on the paradise earth. For more info go to www.jw.org
The Bible explains the condition of the dead. Its clear teaching is this: When a person dies, he ceases to exist. Death is the opposite of life. We are mortal and do not survive the death of our body. The life we enjoy is like the flame of a candle. When the flame is put out, it does not go anywhere. It is simply gone. Please read Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6, 10 and Psalms 146:4. Also, you can go to jw.org and click on the publications tab and then click on What Does the Bible Really Teach? and examine chapters 6 and 7.
An interesting quote from the Gospel of Phillip goes something like this "If you seek to be saved in death, to go to heaven and exist in eternal paradise, then you shall die. Only by being saved in life may one attain Heaven" this is a VERY rough paraphrase, as I cannot find my copy of the book.. But I personally believe that the flesh dies, and returns to the Earth. What is holy, the soul, will return to God. If you have a led a good life, so to shall you have a good afterlife, if you have committed horrid acts, you shall be punished. I may be wrong, we may simply cease to exist.. But I hope not lol
Im assuming u mean "what will happen to me after i die?" well the answer to that is, Unknown, but just saying, why would it matter? Are u that special anyway that it would matter if your construct of ideas/mind did continue to reason, i hope the answer is yes and i do hope there is something beyond death so i could keep expanding me perceptions on reality.

I think majority of the people knows what happens after death. First of all, the person who is about to die breathes his/her last. The body comes into inactive state, no breathing and no pulse. Eventually the body decays in the grave except the skeleton. But beyond that, nobody knows for sure what happens unless we experience it, right? I think I can compare death to sleep because when I am asleep, I am not aware of what is happening in my surroundings like for example my wife has cooked dinner, our kids were playing and it was raining outside. Even the passing of time, I had no knowledge. "NEVER AGAIN WILL THEY (The Dead) HAVE A PART IN ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS UNDER THE SUN" the Bible said. But I believe in the Resurrection though. Peace be with you!

When a person dies, he ceases to exist. The dead do not see or hear or think. "As for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all,”states Ecclesiastes 9:5. Psalm 146:4 says that when a man dies, “his thoughts do perish.” We are mortal and do not survive the death of our body. Check out chapter 6 of this book: http://download.jw.org/files/media_books/bh_E.pdf.
we believe that once u offically pass over you go through this transformation which is different for everyone. it lasts about 48 hours, and its basicly a long dream. like if you are a dark person or watch alot of dark things, chances are that yours will be scary. after we go through that we believe we are still human, and stya with our loved ones for 4-48 days, then go to heaven
