Genesis 3:19 (King James Version)

19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.


Ecclesiastes 9:10 (King James Version)

10Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest

Ecclesiastes 9:5 (King James Version)

5For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.



Psalm 146:4 (King James Version)

4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.


All these scriptures say the same thing. when you die you are dead ,you have no thoughts no work no anything. Just nonexistence.

itsnotme is correct. However, that does not mean there is no hope for us after we die. The Bible promises that God remembers those in the memorial tombs.
“Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” John 5:28, 29

That's the old Jewish view and it was wrong then and still is. Christianity reestablished resurrection of the soul as part and parcel of God's Cosmic Plan. Near-death-experiences clearly point to the existence of an afterlife.

Is the God of Christians and Jewish different?

No he isn't different.

Here is another scripture that gives us a little more incite to what death is.


Ecclesiastes 3:19 (New King James Version)

19 For what happens to the sons of men also happens to animals; one thing befalls them: as one dies, so dies the other. Surely, they all have one breath; man has no advantage over animals, for all is vanity.


So when you die your only hope is that God remembers you. And then you get a resurrection.
So no one has to fear the dead or can they speak to the dead, becasue they are just nonexistent. Also there is nothing that leaves the body at death and continues on.

I totaly agree with you that God is same for Jews, Christians, Muslims and all humans, but want to know the view of Biomystic, who is claiming that he have seperate god else of us.

This is a false teaching of Christendom. As for near death experiences,that is like dreaming, the mind will do and think strange events. Just like acomputer with a low battery.

Ezekiel 18:4 (New International Version)

4 For every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son—both alike belong to me. The soul who sins is the one who will die.

RE: Life after Death?
As mentioned in Ecclesiastes 9:5,6,10, the Bible leaves no room for considering near-death experiences as a prelude to life after death.
One possibility is that presented by some psychologists to the effect that the still active brain of the near dead person recalls and forms images under the stresses of the near death experiences. These are then interpreted by some patients and investigators to be glimpses of life after death. However, as the Bible mentions man does not have an immortal soul, and there is no such thing as life after death.

The first part of Ecclesiastes is written from the point of view of mere human reasoning; that is, it represents the best wisdom available for those who do not enjoy a relationship with the God of the Bible. You have to wait until the very end (Eccl. 12:13-14) before you get the Biblical "stamp" on what the "preacher" (writer of Ecclesiastes) says. Christians do not take the bulk of Ecclesiastes as giving God's final or true perspective any more than they take the words of Job's "comforters" to be portray God's views.

See 1 Samuel 28:11-19 for a true experience of the afterlife.
