Scripture says...

Death, physical
(Hebrews 9:27) And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,

Physical death is a consequence of sin (Gen 3:19) and the universality of death proves the universality of sin. (Rom 5:12-14). Physical death affects the body only, and is neither cessation of life nor of consciousness. All physical death ends in the resurrection of the body. "Resurrection" (Job 19:25). (1Co 15:52). Because physical death is a consequence of sin, it is not inevitable to the redeemed. (Gen 5:24); (1Co 15:51); (1Co 15:52); (1Th 4:15-17). Physical death has for the believer a peculiar qualification. It is called "sleep," because his body may be "awakened" at any moment. (Phi 3:20); (Phi 3:21); (1Th 4:14-18). The soul and spirit live, independently of the death of the body, which is described as a "tabernacle" (tent), in which the "I" dwells, and which may be put off. (2Co 5:1-8); (1Co 15:42-44); (2Pe 1:13-15). At the believer's death, he is "clothed upon" with a "house from heaven" pending the resurrection of the "earthly house," and is at once "with the Lord". (2Co 5:1-8); (Phi 1:23); (Luk 23:43). As to the death of Christ, (Mat 27:50). Note: We see Paul as referring not to at the time of death, but our hope to be clothed with our "house from heaven" at the rapture or resurrection. (The Biblicist)
