Christ represents death as a sleep to His believing children. Their Life is hid with Christ in God, and until the last trumpet shall sound those who die will sleep in Him.
1Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with Trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first:1 E G White The Desire of Ages p527
2 The Bible.
