We do not go to our Father at death, we do not see Him until the final judgement. When the resurrection occurs there will be an outpouring of souls when all is fulfilled, the soul will then go back to its own body meeting the living in the air, taken up in a whirlwind. Before Jesus went to be with His Father, He showed His disciples His scars from His Crucifixion proving that He was again, and His own body made new. He said this is how you'll go with me when I come back for you, then He was taken up into a cloud. Here is where we need to stay focused, this is not a rapture, lets not confuse the truth with hearsay, it is a resurrection. What Jesus said was quite simple. There is no parable to the word resurrection except for Jesus Himself, in layman's terms if you will, resurrection means coming back to life, re-erected, and taken up in a whirlwind. Many people want to know what the whirlwind is exactly, truth is no one knows and it shouldn't matter. In the blink of an eye, just not here anymore, gone. I'm more concerned about joining these that are saved through the blood of Jesus and the grace of our Father Creator. Jesus never lied to us then or in prophesy in our future now, the only thing to fear Jesus said, was the one and only who created everything. The one who made you can take you out of existence with the 2nd death, that is to say the death of your soul. It's always important to learn the truth when something in your conscience says uh... wait a minute, this answer just doesn't feel right or sit well on my tummy. Look up in scripture all there is to say on resurrection, taken, and death. There are no souls lurking about in the shadows watching us, when we die we go into a deep sleep, I'm guessing in the chamber of souls, or as Paul stated the 3rd heaven. Our body stays in the earth or under the earth until resurrection day, it won't matter if we decay, because Jesus showed us we'll be made new. He also said we are not to worry about any of these things because, in the beginning we were made to be eternal and in the end we will be. We will come full circle and start a new beginning on a made new earth. We will be like our brothers the angels, we will sing praises together with them to our Father who's Son will be our King. My guess since the spirit world is of the spirit and the world we live in is of the flesh, going to be with our Father and His Son, our new bodies will be something other than the flesh we know. And since it was said we will be like our brothers the angels we may have an appearance like shining lightening. Totally awesome.
