Question #48

Referring to Isa 14:9-17, if there is no conscious awareness after death, how could Sheol "... become agitated at you in order to meet you on coming in..." (v.9), how could the souls in Sheol "... speak up and say to you..." (v.10-11), how could the souls in Sheol when "...seeing you will gaze even at you; they will give close examination even to you, [saying,] This this the man'..." (v. 16-17), and how would you be aware that this was happening?


The questioner seems to be suggesting that rotting corpses laid to rest in their graves on beds of maggots can actually sit up and speak. This question obviously springs from a dimly lit mind that cannot grasp allusion and metaphor. Jehovah's Witnesses should not even waste their time trying to explain the deep things of prophecy to someone who cannot comprehend the most elemental things of the Scriptures, such as what death actually entails.
