This lesson skips to the Doctrine of the Glorification the saints have in Christ which is out of order and should be covered towards the end of the study. Glenn chose to skip to this lesson due to the loss Heritage Baptiste Church experienced of its dear member Glenn Wilkinson.
1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith, Chapter 31 – The State of People after Death and the Resurrection of the Dead, Paragraph 1:
After death the bodies of people return to dust and undergo decomposition, but their souls (which neither die nor sleep for they are immortal in essence) immediately return to God who gave them. The souls of the righteous are then made perfect in holiness, they are received into paradise where they are with Christ and look on the face of God in light and glory, and wait for the full redemption of their bodies. The souls of the wicked are cast into hell, where they remain in torment and utter darkness, reserved for judgment on the great day [of judgment]. For souls separated from their bodies, the Scripture acknowledges no other place than these two.
