Where are the dead?

Many have wondered for long,"where really are our dead loved ones?" Are you among such ones, then here is are some two scriptures for us to consider. Genesis 3:19 reads, "In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground,for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return". Also in Ecclsiates 9:10 "All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in sheole[the grave, hell, the world of the dead, the place to which you are going". It really seems that when we die, we sieze to exist and our only hope lies in the resurrection into life in a peaceful new world. That is my view based on those bible texts as regards the condition of the dead.
