According to the sacred scriptures what happens when the unjust die? They go immediately to hell. This is what the story of the rich man and Lazarus declares.
The spirit of the unjust, namely their moral conscience given to them at conception, is revoked by their Creator upon death.
Here you have an individual who spent their entire life repressing and ignoring the still small voice of God and rejecting the right of their moral conscience. This is reflected in the empty pursuit of the individual who accentuated a lifestyle of fleshly pleasures, the 'good' in their religious observances, and even the respectable who sacrificed for others . . . However, where they are going, they will have no need of it.
Because the damned are stripped of their spirit, they are similarly naked and bare before the demons and other reprobates inhabiting the underworld.
This is juxtaposed to the saints inhabiting glory who don the righteousness of Christ, namely his blood, that is reflected and fashioned in righteous apparel. A garment mirroring the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
Amidst their own worm that never dies, and where the fire is not quenched, the damned await the ultimate judgment of their soul before Jesus Christ at the Great White Throne Judgment. This condemnation awaits the Christ-rejecting prior to the New Jerusalem coming down from heaven. It is revealed in Revelation 20:11. These sobering words set a dire scene unlike any Hollywood movie could ever capture.
From all points of the globe on land, and from all points where the damned encountered their physical demise, inclusive of those in hell, Jesus summons them all, involuntarily, to be judged by the Book of Life and according to their works.
For those pagans living at the end of the millennium, walking zombies you might say, i.e. walking dead people, the worst eventuality awaits their spiritless souls--a massive re-location of the living and deceased--from hell to the lake of fire. And don't forget, this is for all eternity. You can ignore these words, but you will NEVER forget them!
And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
