Will you leave Heaven behind?

All too often preachers use the old standby of HELLFIRE AND BRIMSTONE to convince people they need to become Christians. This ministry would like to jump off that bandwagon for a moment and share with you what you will be MISSING if you choose not to go to the Kingdom known affectionately as Heaven.  I hope to reveal to you what you will be giving up if you choose not to receive the gift your loving Creator has presented to you. Besides the fact that you will be spared the eternal damnation, plus the blessings and peace He gives to all those that trust Him. I am going to share what some of you may never have known...

Many of us Christians are aware that we cannot know everything that awaits the ones that have received the gift of salvation. Mainly because of this verse1 Corinthians 2:9, says, "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."

 However, there are numerous places in Scripture that do give us a "prophetic peek" of what God has in store for those that love and trust Him. For example...

 We will be living with Jesus in person!

While residing in Heaven we will be blessed with the fact that we will never become bored at any given moment.

No more death, pain, tears, sorrow, sickness, hospitals, operations, tragedy, disappointments, trouble, hunger, or thirst.

Nor will we ever get tired by any activity we perform

 Imagine if you can, running at full sprint for miles and miles and never once having to stop to catch your breath!  Plus every single saved person that ever lived on this earth will be whole in every way. That means the deaf will hear, the blind see, the dumb will sing, and the lame will be able to run for as long as they like. (Isa 35:5,6; Phil 3:21)

Never again will we have to contend with emotions such as, jealousy, fear, hatred, falsehood, envy, impurity, cynicism, filth, worry, plus all evil of any kind will be completely shut out of God's eternal Kingdom.

Our bodies will be absolutely perfect. In fact they will fashioned after the body of the Creator Himself. Jesus Christ!

 The oceans of our present world will be gone from the Heavenly Kingdom once it resides on Earth.

Not only that, but once the Kingdom of Heaven descends from above after the 1000 years and makes Earth its headquarters, the deserts of this earth will actually become gardens, on this re-created planet.

 Ever wonder what it would be like to ride a grizzly bear, or play wrestle with a mountain lion? Well this too will become a reality in God's Heaven. The animals will be tame, none will prey upon others, and a little child will lead them.

 No more curse upon mankind.

Nor will there be violence of any sort.

This also means no floods, no tornados, no hurricanes, no earthquakes... etc. Nothing defiling in any way will be found in Heaven, plus... NO LIARS!.

 Will there be children in Heaven? And will they grow up while residing there?

 Think about that! All those saved parents that have lost their children will be able to see them grow up in heaven with all it's awesome gifts and glory!

Will we know each other in Heaven?

Will we have bodies in Heaven?

Is it not written "...we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body..." The Bible says, we'll have the same body Jesus has, and He has flesh and bones!

 Did you also know that besides the mansion that is built for the children of God in the city of Heaven...

We also will be allowed to go out into the newly created world after the 1000 years and build our own homes with our very own hands?

Imagine that, having all of eternity to build your second home anywhere in a newly created worldwide paradise, and having eternity to perfect it!

In Heaven we will also be singing and playing Heavenly music.

We will continue to worshiping God every 7th day Sabbath

We will be eternally enjoying the never fading trees and flowers

We will visit loved ones, prophets, and people of the Bible.

We will study the animals of Heaven

We will actually be able to listen to God Almighty SING!

Never grow old or weary, eternal youth and vigor

All that Adam lost will be entirely restored!

  "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation;..." -Hebrews 2:3 

A few more tidbits regarding what we will be doing in Heaven. But first, think on these things...

Revelation 20:6, "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years."

Have you ever wondered WHO we will reign over? Seeing how EVERYONE that takes part in the first ressurection will reign, who is it we will reign over? Can kings and queens reign over kings and queens?

So.. who will we reign over?

All the treasures of the universe will be open to the study of God's redeemed. Unfettered by mortality, they wing their tireless flight to worlds afar--worlds that thrilled with sorrow at the spectacle of human woe and rang with songs of gladness at the tidings of a ransomed soul. With unutterable delight the children of earth enter into the joy and the wisdom of unfallen beings. They share the treasures of knowledge and understanding gained through the ages upon ages in contemplation of God's handiwork. With undimmed vision they gaze upon the glory of creation-- suns and stars and systems, all in their appointed order circling the throne of Deity. Upon all things, from the least to the greatest, the Creator's name is written, and in all are the riches of His power displayed.   -Ellen G. White, Adventist Home 548.1

The redeemed throng will range from world to world, and much of their time will be employed in searching out the mysteries of redemption.- Ellen G. White 7BC 990 (1886). Last day events 301.3

     "Ye are My witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God." Isaiah 43:12. This also we shall be in eternity.  -Ellen G. White Education 308.2

     For what was the great controversy permitted to continue throughout the ages? Why was it that Satan's existence was not cut short at the outset of his rebellion? It was that the universe might be convinced of God's justice in His dealing with evil; that sin might receive eternal condemnation. In the plan of redemption there are heights and depths that eternity itself can never exhaust, marvels into which the angels desire to look. The redeemed only, of all created beings, have in their own experience known the actual conflict with sin; they have wrought with Christ, and, as even the angels could not do, have entered into the fellowship of His sufferings; will they have no testimony as to the science of redemption --nothing that will be of worth to unfallen beings? -Ellen G. White Education 308.4

The Lord has given me a view of other worlds. Wings were given me, and an angel attended me from the city to a place that was bright and glorious. The grass of the place was living green, and the birds there warbled a sweet song. The inhabitants of the place were of all sizes; they were noble, majestic, and lovely. They bore the express image of Jesus, and their countenances beamed with holy joy, expressive of the freedom and happiness of the place. I asked one of them why they were so much more lovely than those on the earth. The reply was, "We have lived in strict obedience to the commandments of God, and have not fallen by disobedience, like those on the earth." . . . I begged of my attending angel to let me remain in that place. I could not bear the thought of coming back to this dark world again. Then the angel said, "You must go back, and if you are faithful, you, with the 144,000, shall have the privilege of visiting all the worlds and viewing the handiwork of God." -Ellen G. White Adventist Home page 543.2

That's right! The modern day proven PROPHET of the Lord, Sister White confirms that which Scriptures declare! The Word states plainly that there ARE "other worlds does it not?

Sister White merely illustrates that which is written with the eyes of a prophet. We will reign over those that live on the other worlds the Almighty created! And by the way, why are they considered "unfallen beings" on these other worlds? Satan and his minions were ONLY cast to this planet!

And we are the ONLY race of beings in the Universes that will know first hand the knoweldge of "good and evil." Therefore we will be good Ambassadors for Christ on these other worlds. It makes all those trials and tribulations seem well worth it now eh?!

In other words...




"The life on earth is the beginning of the life in heaven; education on earth is an initiation into the principles of heaven; the lifework here is a training for the lifework there. What we now are, in character and holy service, is the sure foreshadowing of what we shall be.  "The Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister." Matthew 20:28. Christ's work below is His work above, and our reward for working with Him in this world will be the greater power and wider privilege of working with Him in the world to come."  -Education p308
