Default Soul sleep or heaven?

The other day I was talking to a friend who sees good reasons to believe what the Seventh Day Adventist & the Jehovah’s Witnesses both teach concerning soul sleep. I personally don’t buy this teaching as I believe that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

When the Jw’s once called round at our home they challenged me with this claim saying that God will re-construct the body of the dead from the graves and that Ezekiel teaches that the soul that sinneth it shall die as their proof text.

I asked them …who were the two men that appeared on the mount of transfiguration with Jesus…were they holograms? They replied no….then I said…..then who were they? They couldn’t answer me!
After this I tried to keep the focus on Christ and their relationship with His gospel but they decided to leave.

But my question is……….what do you see in the Scriptures concerning soul sleep, believers going to heaven when they die or remaining in the grave as these people teach?

God bless
