Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.(Psalms 33:18-19) KJV
Being dead doesn’t mean that we cease to exist. Dead or alive refers to the condition of our soul in terms of it’s relationship to God. God has power over the life and death of the soul, through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
There’s no other power available which can keep your soul alive. Only faith in Jesus Christ can deliver your soul from death.
Our conclusion is that being alive means being in the presence of God either on Earth, where our body is a tabernacle for the Holy Spirit, or in the presence of God in heaven. Being dead means to be either living on Earth, without the Holy Spirit, or being in the giant ball of molten radioactive slag at the center of the Earth – hell. Either way we can be in our body and interacting with the world around us or, when our body dies, we experience what comes next.
So what comes next?

All souls are eternal, however, they’re either dead or alive. The death of our body isn’t the end of consciousness, and the death of our soul isn’t the end of existence.
