What happens to a believer when he dies?

When a believer dies his body returns to dust or decays, but the Holy Spirit transports his soul to be with Christ in peace.

Luke 23:43: Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with Me in paradise.

Luke 16:22: And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom.

Phil. 1:23-25: I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith.

Col. 3:3-4: For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory.
