Experiencing the Afterlife
Updated: Sep 7
Do you ever consider what you will experience after you die?
I suppose some people are resigned to the idea they won't have any experiences after they die. Maybe they don't really believe in an afterlife. Making a choice not to believe in an afterlife is still an act of faith, though—because they don't really know.
Here's what I believe: If I die a physical death, my body will be dead, but my soul and my spirit will not die—and my soul and spirit will be conscious. I'll know I'm not just dreaming. I'll immediately begin experiencing way more reality than ever before, even though I won't have any physical senses at first.
I'll experience all dimensions of reality. Ephesians 3:18 says there are four space dimensions. String Theory postulates eleven or more dimensions. So there will much more reality for me to enjoy than I'm currently able to access. Naturally, I'm gonna go 'splorin' first thing.
I'll be unbound from time. I'll never run late, never feel rushed, never again have to keep appointments in a calendar. I'll be able to access the past and future as easily as I currently access the present.
I'll get an upgraded physical body on the day of the Rapture. I Corinthians 15:51-55 describes the day Christ-followers will experience resurrection. It's my understanding non-believers won't be resurrected until later, shortly before the great white throne judgment of Revelation 20:11-15. (Click on the underlined link to read about this judgment. And by the way, I strongly recommend getting your name in the book of life before you die. Seems like you'll experience a way better outcome when you come before the Judge.)
In summary, I believe the afterlife is going to be a completely enhanced experience compared to the before-life and even the during-life—at least for those whose names are written in the book of life.
