“Heaven & Hell – 202” [2/?] Blog.
What about ‘Heaven’… and where is it? That is a question that many have wondered. In this age of today ‘many’… have left their Bibles and believed ‘anything’ they have been taught. Never have so many… not checked the Word to see if, what they were told… were True? Many are falsely led to believe that they will ‘see’ their loved ones and be a family again. Sorry… that is ‘not’ what the Bible teaches. When we see… Jesus… that will be above and better than any earthly relationship could ever be. We have to ‘stop’… and keep our earthly thinking… out of heaven.
*** (Matthew 22:29-30) Jesus answered and said to them, ‘You’ err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.
(Matthew 22:30) For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in Heaven.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come, says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the Words of Jehovah.
*** (Revelation 21:3-to-6) And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
(Rev 21:4) And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there will be no more death, nor mourning, nor crying out, nor will there be any more pain; for the first things passed away.
(Rev 21:5) And He sitting on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me, Write, for these words are true and faithful.
(Rev 21:6) And He said to me, It is done. I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who thirsts I will give of the fountain of the Water of Life freely.
Once again… back to the Scriptures. We must ‘adjust’ our thinking processes to… God’s Word Thinking… instead of the way we would like it to be. Christ dealt with the religious of His day… and their Marriage, Husband / Wife… in heaven thinking. He corrected them… with the Scriptures. I do the very same thing to ‘myself’, all the time. Surely it is a lot easier to allow our human life thinking to do the driving… but it will lead us down the… ‘Wrong Road!’
*** (Matthew 7:14) Because narrow is the gate and constricted is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
*** (Philippians 2:5) Have the same [mind] attitude among yourselves that was also in Christ Jesus:
*** (Acts 17:11) And these = were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = ‘searched’ the Scriptures = daily = to see if those things = were so.
There are descriptions of Heaven… in the book of Revelation. There are also references to heaven in the Gospels and Epistles. If you will take the time, you can search these out for yourself. What I post here about Heaven & Hell is just a cursory listing to get your appetite primed, for the Word of God. Is there someone ‘else’ who saw heaven and what it was like… in the Bible…?
*** (2Corinthains 12:2-3-4) I know a man in Christ. Fourteen years ago-whether in his body or outside of his body, I do not know, but God knows-that man was snatched away to the third heaven.
(2Cor 12:3) I know that this man-whether in his body or outside of his body, I do not know, but God knows-
(2Cor 12:4) was snatched away to Paradise and heard things that cannot be expressed in words, things that no human being has a right even to mention.
Many do not understand… what the Gospel really is. There are so many different Christian denominations that they are confused. All this confusion ends… when ‘ONE’… believes what is written in the Scriptures. Again here in the USA… there are many Cultural Christians… who give Lip Service to God and the Bible. But they hardly if ever… Open and Study… the Bible to hear what God says and not their Church.
*** (1Thessalonians 5:21) Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these = were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = ‘Searched’ the Scriptures = daily = to see if those things = were “SO?”
Those that have only ‘Religion’… are often intimidated when some posts Bible Verses. Instead of checking them out for themselves the often… “Write Off”… the person and what they have to say. One adult skill… of the younger generation; is that they have no depth of thought. Their thinking processes have been affected not only by an inferior education system, but by the entertainment mentality. Many older ones; are simply set in their ways and will not be moved into deeper obedience to the Scriptures or Spiritual Growth.
*** (2Peter 1:2-to-10) Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,
(2Pet 1:3) according as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who has called us to glory and virtue,
(2Pet 1:4) through which He has given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, so that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
(2Pet 1:5) But also in this very thing, bringing in all diligence, filling out your faith with virtue, and with virtue, knowledge;
(2Pet 1:6) and with knowledge self-control, and with self-control, patience, and with patience, godliness,
(2Pet 1:7) and with godliness, brotherly kindness, and with brotherly kindness, love.
(2Pet 1:8) For if these things are in you and abound, they make you to be neither idle nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(2Pet 1:9) For he in whom these things are not present is blind and cannot see afar off and has forgotten that he was purged from his sins in the past.
(2Pet 1:10) Therefore, brothers, rather be diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you do these things, you shall never fall.
What do these Bible verses… sound like… Stagnation or Spiritual Growth..? But of course… Spiritual Growth! You have been a Christian for “____” [enter an amount] Years…? You say you Love Jesus… Yes? Well Christ Jesus is the Living Word. How well do you know His written Word? Do you know it well enough… to defend JESUS… with His Holy Word? If Not… why Not? Is heaven your destination… or are you bound for the Lake of Fire? And are you… “Completely Sure” about That…? IF Jesus asked… could You show His… in His Word… where He has promised you… Heaven and… Why…?
*** (2Peter 3:15-to-18) Think of our Lord's patience as salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him.
(2Pet 3:16) He speaks about this subject in all his letters. Some things in them are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort to their own destruction, as they do the rest of the Scriptures.
(2Pet 3:17) And so, dear friends, since you already know these things, continually be on your guard not to be carried away by the deception of lawless people, lest you fall from your secure position.
(2Pet 3:18) Instead, continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Glory belongs to him both now and on that eternal day! Amen.
*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain because you have become too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.
Continued next part…!
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship = toward Your holy temple, = and = praise Your Name = for Your loving-kindness = and = for “Your Truth's” sake; = for You [God] = have magnified = = = “Your Word” = = = ‘Above All’ = Your Name. = [Psalms 119:18 & 1Samuel 3:21 & Deuteronomy 29:29]
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, = The Truth = of the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘they are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with “His Word”...!"
(Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, if these are His doings. = Do not = My Words = do good to him = who walks uprightly?
