The interval between life and death is considered extremely sacred in many Hebraic tradition. On this side, the rite of passage marks the conclusion of the soul's journey on earth. On the other, death heralds the beginning of the soul's eternal life in the coming Millennial & “the World To Come”. In traditional Judaism does not see death itself as a tragedy, but only the natural and expected end of life. Death after a long life, full of faith, vitality and good deeds is just one-half of it; the real life actually only starts at the other side of the grave.
We are only travelling this mortal life; this is a mere journey till we reach our destination on the "the world to come" where we will spend our eternity. According to the Scripture, many of those sleeping in the earth's dust shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to reproaches and to everlasting loathing (Dan 12:1). The L-RD will judge according to the works we have done during our physical lives: "the ones having done good into a resurrection of life; and the ones having practiced evil into a resurrection of judgment" (John 5:28).
All humans will stand before Judge Elohim in His Supreme Court of the Universe. He will judge whether you and I were fools or wise men during our physical lives. According to Scripture, fools will burn in the lake of fire while the wise will live forever in the New Jerusalem.
Each of us has to make a choice. We have to decide upon which spiritual foundation we will build our spiritual house (one´s life is like a house). Matt 7:24-27: "Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it." (KJV). The beauty of choose Yeshua´s way is that with Him, there is hope after death, a hope of eternal life.
