Heaven: the eternal abode of God, holy angels and saints
It does not matter your poverty on earth if you make it to heaven you will forget this earth and would not remember it again. The description of heaven cannot be done by human language.
It is simply impossible to explain heaven from the bible. Your only and most important goal on earth is to make it to heaven. You should not allow anything and anyone to
stop you because that is the only favour you could do for your soul. What should you know about heaven:
1. No one is qualify
There is no human being on earth today that could make it to heaven on his own righteousness because once you are born on earth the seed of sins are born with you and you will naturally comit sins.
Eccl.7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
Romans3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.
2. God's great mercy on man made a way for mankind through the righteousness of Jesus Christ
All the pride of your hearts because of your self righteousness is not enough to get you to heaven but hell.
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
If you are a muslim and practise Islam, the bible says your righteousness is nothing but filthy rags before the Lord. Do not fool yourself all muslims are going to hell according to the Bible and not believing in Jesus as the only saviour and the only begotten son of God have sentenced you to destruction.
John 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
3. Purgatory does not exist and it is a doctrine of hell
There is no where in the bible where purgatory was confirmed. The bible told us what happens after death is straight judgement
Heb9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
4. God will laugh at sinners misery when they die without Jesus Christ
The preachers of today have lie to mankind about God. They speak about only the aspect of God men want to hear because of their own covetousness. It is true that God is merciful, compassionate and full of grace but that is just one side of God. The other side of God is that he is jealous, terrible and consuming fire. God would not show mercy to demons or man who refused the salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ. If you would not repent and turn to holiness and righteousness, you risk the wrath of God for all eternity.
Proverbs 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; 25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; 27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. 28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: 29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: 30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. 31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
