I was under the impression that the way it works is that, when we die, our souls remain in the body until the Rapture described in Revelation, when we all rise and are judged at the Second Coming. THEN we depart to our final destinations. ...As I recall the Scripture, anyway...
No, every Protestant denomination I'm aware of (mine included - I'm Lutheran) teaches that the soul goes immediately to its final destination upon death.
Hmmm... Perhaps I'm thinking of the Catholic dogma.
The "soul sleep" 137th Gebirg refers to is taught among some Protestants as well. The church I attend (ECC) has people with that belief who came from various denominations -- but that means I'm not sure which one(s) it's from.
