Or perhaps a better question would be: Is any mortal creature going to heaven? Another pertinent question would be which heaven, for there are three heavens, not one? The first heaven is the air or atmosphere. The second heaven is the aether or the habitation of the stars and planets. The third heaven is the domain of the Godhead and the angelic realm and has only been seen by one mortal man and that man was the Messenger (apostle) Paul.
2 Corinthians 12:1-2 (KJV) It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of The Lord. 2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
Here Paul describes, in a way not to make himself sound boastful, or someone who is special because of this blessing, his amazing visit by to the realm of the Godhead – The Third Heaven. He speaks of this experience as if it is another man but, all the while, it is him.
Now apart from the Messenger (apostle) John with the visions Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) gave him to enable him to write the Book of Revelation, no man has been treated in such a special way. The question is, though, will any other man, or woman, be privy to such treatment now or in the future? No.
How do I know that? I know it because The Holy Scriptures tell us and it is all very straight forward:
Revelation 3:12 (KJV) Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in The Temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of The City of my God, which is New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. (Emphasis mine)
Revelation 21:1 (KJV) And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Revelation 21:3 (KJV) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, The Tabernacle (tent or home) of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. (Brackets mine)
Have any of you yet noticed how The Word of God nearly always teaches the very opposite of what the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion teaches and the number of times, in my articles, I have revealed this to be the case?
Here, again, we can see the lies in which they believe and exposed for all to see. The Father God is going to come down OUT OF HEAVEN and make His home with men and/or with mankind. That is, with us, not us up there with Him. Quite honestly, I do not know where in The Holy Scriptures they get the idea from that they are going to heaven – “to be with The Lord.” That being another of their favourite off-pat jargon expressions – totally meaningless, erroneous and totally non-Scriptural.
Here is another conundrum: have you ever wondered, if what they say is true of course, what we will be doing in heaven? Some say we will be sitting at Yashua Messiah’s (The Lord Jesus Christ’s) feet for eternity (How boring for Him is that!!??). Others say that we will be floating around in the first heaven (the atmosphere) aimlessly on clouds, but is there any Truth in any of this emotional infantile rubbish? NO a zillion times NO!!!
Revelation 7:9 (KJV) After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before The Throne, and before The Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.
Now here is a verse that can easily be mistaken for a heavenly event, but is that the case? No, a thousand times no. The Lamb – Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) is on His Throne and that Throne will be here on this earth, not in heaven, only The Father God’s throne is in heaven where Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) presently sits at His right hand, but not on a throne. The Father sits on His throne and The Lord sits to His right, but no heavenly throne is mentioned in The Holy Scriptures for Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) until He returns to this earth in Glory. Notice, too, these people have palms in their hands and there is only one place you will find palms and that’s here on earth, on, or in, God’s Creation – not in heaven.
Moreover The Holy Scriptures make it very clear that Yashua Messiah’s Throne is King David’s Throne that is already here on this earth:
Luke 1:32 (KJV) He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and The Lord God shall give unto Him The Throne of His father David.
OK, we can now see that their silly ideas are now shot through with several holes, so where else in The Holy Scriptures can we look to see where their mistakes originate. Could it be possible that they get them from Matthew’s Gospel where he and only he refers to the Kingdom of God as the Kingdom of Heaven? Why does Matthew do that? Some commentators say he does it because his Gospel was written principally for the benefit of the Jews. The Jews were easily offended if they saw the word ‘God’ written as God so Matthew used the word ‘heaven’ instead so as not to offend them.
Now this may be the case, but he uses the word God in dozens of other places in his Gospel, so this idea doesn’t really stack up. The Truth is, Matthew’s use of the expression “Kingdom of Heaven” is simple to understand and it’s to teach us that God’s Kingdom or the Kingdom of God is the same as the Kingdom of Heaven and it’s there, written in this way, to teach Cainite-Judeo-Christians the very opposite of what they believe. Well fancy that!
If you study a Synoptic Bible or a Harmony of the Gospels (If you haven’t got one I would recommend you acquire one as they are useful study aids) you will find that every time Mark says Kingdom of God, Matthew is saying Kingdom of Heaven, so this proves they are one and same thing and therefore mean the same thing. Here, though, is where these ‘Christians’ still make a mistake, because it is the Kingdom of God or from God; not in God.
If we then transfer this obvious understanding across to Kingdom of Heaven it is the Kingdom from, or of, Heaven, not in Heaven. There is no Kingdom in Heaven, nor will there ever be a Kingdom in Heaven as The Father is coming down out of Heaven with a new heaven and a new earth to make His home with mankind.
Nowhere does it say we are going to heaven to make our home with Him. Which ever way we stack this, it is the complete opposite of what the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion teaches and, of course, it would have to be, because ‘Christians going to heaven’ is all part of their deluded belief system.
For companion reading to this article please see my articles entitled: “Verily I Say unto You, Today Thou Shalt be With Me in Paradise” – Again, Oh Really is That So.” And “When Christians Die Do They: Go Instantly to be With The Lord?” All very interesting eh?
