10 Truths About Soul Sleep that Christians Should Know!

Soul sleep is a belief originated by some people who teaches that the soul of the dead sleeps without any action until the final day of resurrection and judgment by the LORD.

By the special grace of the LORD, I have the authority to teach this topic about soul sleep because GOD revealed a vision about consciousness of life after death to me.

Does a Dead Soul Truly Sleep?

“The LORD took me to His courtyard in a vision and I noticed the environment was very beautiful, clean, peaceful and quiet. He sits on His Throne of Judgment and there is a single row of dead souls before Him. I noticed the number of dead souls on the row increases continuously. And no one spends up to a femtosecond before the LORD.

He pronounces His judgment and no one argues with Him or complains that His judgment is not fair. There is an exit by the right and left side of the courtyard. I noticed after the pronouncement the judged souls do not need anyone to usher them to their appropriate exit route. Many souls walk through the left exit while very few walk through the right exit.”

I asked God to explain the vision and He told me to preach the following to the world:

1. “Tell everyone that it does not take Me a day to judge everyone on earth.” “I don’t count seconds the way you count on earth.”

2. “Once you die, your flesh rotten on earth but your soul and spirit are intact and I reform you to fit into the new existence. You receive instant judgement when you die and you either go to hell to suffer or heaven to enjoy till the day of final judgment.”

3. Tell the world that many people are going to hell fire while saints are very few on the path to heaven.”

I was very scared after God’s message because the tone has no respect for anyone. If you are obedient then you would enjoy, but if you disobey despite your status as a Pastor, anointed Prophet, longest church member or whatever award you are given in the Church…then it will be a sorrowful day.

I pray you and I won’t miss heaven in Jesus name. GOD did not put up a procedure for soul sleep, so beware of such heresy originated from the Devil’s scheme to deceive us.   

10 Facts to Show that Soul Sleep is Heresy

1. You can never find such word in the Holy Book and neither the LORD nor Jesus Christ teaches soul sleep in the Bible.

2. The story of the rich man and Lazarus in ‘Abraham’s bosom’ shows that souls are not sleeping.

“…So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried… Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame…” (Luke 16:19-31)

3. Prophet Isaiah’s prophecy made it clear that souls in hades were not passive.

“Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming; It stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth; It has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations…” (Isaiah 14:9-11)

4. Jesus Christ made it clear that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are not sleeping but alive.

“But even Moses showed in the burning bush passage that the dead are raised, when he called the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him.” (Luke 20:37-38)

5. If Moses and Elijah were going through soul sleep then it would be impossible to join Jesus Christ during His prayer meeting.

“…And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him…” (Matthew 17:1-8)

6. Souls does not sleep and that is the reason they could cry for justice.

And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” (Revelation 6:10)

7. Jesus Christ told the guy on the other cross to meet Him in paradise, thus both of them were not going to sleep in any realm and not at the purgatory.

“And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” (Luke 23:43)

8. The wisdom of the Holy Spirit in Apostle Peter made us to know that after death the body becomes rotten while your spirit continues to be active! (1 Peter 3:18-19)

9. “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” (Hebrew 9:27)

10. Jesus Christ was around with His disciple for a while before ascension to heaven, if soul sleep was a true teaching, then that would have been impossible for Jesus to do. (Acts chapter 1)


Soul sleep is not real and does not exist. So, I want you to believe the teachings of the Prophets and Jesus Christ which proves that soul sleep is heresy.
