THE ROMAN CATHOLIC THE LARGEST CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN THE WORLD 1.27 BILLION AND THE ONLY ONE STARTED BY JESUS(GOD INCARNATE) HIMSELF, BELIEVE IS>>>
Based upon Sacred Scripture and the teaching of the Church, we can say the following about death and what follows. At the moment of death, the soul is separated from the body and no longer sustains order within the natural body; as a result, the body begins to corrupt and left to its own will decompose. The soul, however, is immortal and never ceases to exist, once created. Immediately upon death, the soul of each person is judged by the Lord, either to eternal life or the damnation of hell(THE SECOND DEATH) . For those damned to hell, such a soul immediately experiences hell thereafter. For a soul judged to heaven, if the soul is truly holy then it may immediately experience the fullness of heaven. We call such souls “the saints.” For those who are judged to eternal life yet still have some attachment to sin or there is some temporal punishment due for sin, such a soul experiences purgatory in the manner that God determines. Purgatory is really a blessing, for not only does the soul know that it is destined for heaven but purgatory purges anything from the soul which would limit the vision and enjoyment of God in heaven. Eventually, when the end of the world comes about, there will be a resurrection of the bodies of all the dead and final judgment of all souls and the angels in which we will all see the justice and mercy of God. Our bodies will be resurrected and body and soul will be rejoined, for to be a human person means to have both body and soul. This is true both for the saved and the damned, and both will experience either eternal happiness or eternal suffering in both body and soul.

A lot of the answer comes from the Old Testament.
We are "gathered unto our fathers," or go to Paradise (not Heaven) to be perfected.
We are buried or otherwise processed according to custom.
Our spirits learn the gospel of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 3:18-20; 4:6) and may even have a chance to benefit from it (1 Cor. 15:29). Of course, Jesus does say that he shall reward us according to our works, so don't put things off.
Some of us need to be purified of our sins before we can go to Paradise. Hell is never forever. Rev. 20:12-14 shows that death and hell must both be emptied and destroyed so that the resurrections and final judgment can take place. There is only finite punishment for finite sin. God's love, justice, and mercy are all intact.
Then we are resurrected into tangible, physical life, health (we hope) and immortality. We shall once again be living souls, body and spirit together.
Then we shall be rewarded according to our works. Not our beliefs, according to Christ.

When your flesh body dies you are done with it. It returns to dust. You are resurrected in a spirit body not a flesh body. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”
1 Corinthians 15:44 "It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body."
1 Corinthians 15:50 "Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption."

We are judged, and sent to the final destination we have chosen by our lives on Earth.

The Bible says we go back to the ground and are conscience of nothing. The only hope there is of experiencing Revelation 21:3,4 is the resurrection in the future.
(Psalm 146:4) His spirit goes out, he returns to the ground; On that very day his thoughts perish.
(Acts 24:15) And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.

Isn't Revelation 21:3-4 the bit about there being no more death
and God coming down to live with us.
SO .. MR DOWN THUMB .. I've just checked !!
''Look, God's dwelling place in now among the people, and he will dwell with us ... there will be no more death, or mourning, or crying or pain''
