Heaven and Hell are real places and when people die, they find themselves in one or the other immediately. People do not roam around the earth in the form of a ghost. Ghosts are familiar spirits. Also referred to as dark entities or demons. These familiar spirits take on the form and personalities of humans in order to deceive the living.
There is no such thing as purgatory. Read the Holy Bible and you won’t find any reference to a purgatory. Upon death, people can not choose whether they will be in Heaven or Hell. They will just find themselves in one or the other. Everyone that is not saved by Jesus will be sent to Hell. Only people who are saved by Jesus will find themselves in Heaven.
People do not just go to sleep permanently after death. When people die, they find themselves in Heaven or Hell. This is in the Bible. The Bible says Hell is an eternal place of unending torment. Read the Bible and find out for yourself.
People are NOT reincarnated after death. The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27-28 that we only die one time.
Hebrews 9:27-28 (ESV)
(27) And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, (28) so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
People who commit suicide will find themselves in Hell. This includes people who end their lives under the premise of death with dignity. The Bible says we have to endure to the end. Jesus endured a slow torturous death nailed to a cross so we could be offered his gift of salvation in Heaven. Here’s what the scriptures say about suicide.
1 Corinthians 3:16-20 (ESV)
(16) Do you not know that you[a] are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? (17) If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.(18) Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. (19) For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” (20) and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”
Jesus Christ is alive!
The only way into Heaven is through the saving grace of Jesus. You first need to repent of your sins and ask Jesus to forgive you and wash away your sins with his precious blood. Ask Jesus to send you the Holy Spirit to lead you in your daily life. Jesus Christ is alive and he is the only way into Heaven.
