Where are the dead and explain the meaning of soul with scriptural references.

Thinking about your question on where are the dead, makes me think of the scripture in Ecclesiastes 9:10, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; for there is no activity or planning or knowledge or wisdom in the grave (Hebrew “Sheol”) where you are going.” When Jesus spoke of death, [...]

Can the Deceased Communicate With Us Spiritually?

No, the dead cannot communicate with us. There is no scripture in the Bible that tells us that the dead can communicate, at all. On the contrary, Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 tells us: “the dead know nothing. ... They no longer play a part in anything here on earth.” (New Living Translation) That would pretty much rule [...]

Do God, Satan and angels have souls?

To answer your first question: Do God, Satan and angels have souls? Yes, they have souls as do all animals (Job. 12:10).

There is considerable difference in having a cow and being a cow! All living beings are souls from the Scriptural standpoint. (`Gen.1:20-30`. [...]

St. Paul, in `1 Thes. 5:23`, prays God…”Your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless,” etc. If not, kindly enlighten fully

In his prayer, St. Paul evidently distinguishes between spirit, soul, and body. We should bear in mind that his letter was addressed to the Church collectively, and not so much to individuals. We can be quite sure that the Apostle did not refer to individuals, for whatever interpretation we may put upon "soul and spirit," [...]

Do you mean to say that the spirit of the Thief, who died upon the cross when the Lord Jesus was crucified, remained in the grave with his body? If so, do the spirits of our dear friends, who turned to Christ in this life, remain with their bodies in the grave until the return of our Lord?

The inspired writers of the Bible tell us just what became of the spirit of the thief who died upon the cross. And they also tell us what becomes of the spirits of those who were devoted followers of Christ and were faithful even unto death. It would not do for us to say what [...]
