The body shall return to the dust from whence God took it. And the breath that He put into the body to turn man into a living soul, returns to Him. Its the breath that returns to God and NOT a soul. Soul is the combination of God 's breath and the dust he took from the earth.

I 'm so glad Jesus came to earth and died for me. It gives me great comfort that even though my body will die one day and return to the earth, God will receive my breath and my spirit and return me to where i once came from. For those of you who are still searching for the truth and the meaning of life, trust in the lord and he will take good care of you.

God gives breath too all.. HE gives Spirit too some,who have Christ Jesus An HE takes back what is HIS when man dies.. His Breath an His Spirit... Those without Christ JEsus Son OF God die, Dust to dust ases to ashes. Those who saved in the LAmb JEsus, they may rest in dust an ashes for the moment, but will be raised back to life,re given Gods Breath an life to live with GODhead. Evil men have just enough breath in them to live, to try to get see God.. Unless they with their will choose Jesus as Lord an Son of God. THEn they will not see heaven. God bless You

When the spirit, or life force, leaves the body, the body dies and returns to where it came from the earth. Comparably, the life force returns to where it came from God. This does not mean that the life force actually travels to heaven. Rather, it means that for someone who dies, any hope of future life rests with Jehovah God. His life is in God s hands, so to speak. Only by God s power can the spirit, or life force, be given back so that a person may live again.
