Jesus Christ said “The Kingdom of God is at hand”, does this mean that heaven where we go is just around here on earth? Does heaven the destination of the saved?
In the Sermon on the Mount where we an find Jesus Christ’s preaching does not even mention the word heaven. Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall INHERIT THE EARTH” (Matt. 5:5).
Ministers after ministers never mention that our future is where we are now, where we stand and die; Have you ever heard a minister say that God’s purpose is for us to inherit the earth? The apostle John recorded the following: “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” (Rev. 5:10).
Our righteousness is to inherit rulership here on earth as kings and priests. Is it not more enchanting, becoming a King than seating on clouds playing harps or moving by turning over and over on an axis throughout eternity.
What Christ Did Say About Heaven
He said, “And no man has ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven” (John 3:13). If heaven is for real as describe to us by those people before us; how it looks like, the feelings of unexplainable joy, worshipping God all day long and playing music. Does the Bible mention their names, who they are.
Whom do we believe Jesus Christ or the earthly ministers who virtually copied the opinion of others and/ or suggest their own ideas about salvation, Jesus Christ did not mislead us, his teaching is focus to the kingdom of God.
Prior to Jesus Christ’s ministry some 4,000 years from Abel to Abraham, from Isaac to David and from the Major and Minor Prophets and all other servants of God, just think and ask for yourself. “Where are they now?” God told us to seek for the truth and the truth will set us free.
If heaven is the reward of the saved, at least one should have made it then come back to testify, but, John 3:13 is very clear says “NO Man” not a single man even the Son of man. These men of God did not fail in their salvation, the reward is definite when time comes. Heaven is not the reward of the saved; our inheritance is over the earth and we rule with Christ, we are the kings and priests and Christ is our King, The King of kings.
John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This passage is universally accepted but why John 3:13 has cloud on it? Why is almost all believers believe John3:16 and not believe in John 3:13?
We can ask now; where are the Old Testament righteous people? Where are they?
