Comments for Ecclesiastes 12:7

Shay's comment on 2014-08-11 09:37:17:

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.
