The doctrine of the soul‘s sleep is accepted in certain evangelical/protestant circles. It is not supported in the communications of the New Revelation. According to the texts Lorber received, the human soul enters the Middle Kingdom immediately after death . Many souls are at first not even aware of the fact that their human body has died. However, the very soon changing status of the soul fully depends on a person‘s attitude during its life on earth.
The seer Swedenborg tells us as well that "everyone upon his death first enters the world of spirits, which is between heaven and hell."
The New Revelation gives most enlightening insights into the beyond through comprehensive portrayals in correspondences of the fate of deceased. According to Lorber there are three stages in heaven and three in hell. (See the works "Bishop Martin", "Robert Blum" and "The Spiritual Sun")
As regards ‘doomsday‘, the following explanations are given: "Everyone‘s doomsday will be when he is awakened to eternal life [rebirth, ed.], be it already here on earth (which happens extremely rarely) or in the beyond. He who is awakened already on earth will neither feel nor taste the death of the flesh, that is, his soul will not be frightened [at the time of death, ed.]. "
