Heaven - Part 1
Since there has been so much said about heaven on the lists recently.
I resurrected this old study that I have on the subject of whether we go
to heaven immediately upon death; or whether we lay in the grave asleep
as Christ said until the Resurrection. So now you can all hate me equally
because I don't believe that a person goes immediately to heaven when they
With all the teaching hoopla today about a Christian accepting
Christ and then going to heaven. There is so much of it you would think
that there would be at least "one" verse of scripture that would clearly
state that a Christian goes to Heaven when he dies.
Now, when asked this question; the first response received was
one who quoted part of the verse,
"We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from
the body, and to be present with the Lord." (2 Corinthians 5:8).
And when we responded he seemed to be quite put out that we did
not fall all over our self and agree with him. But responded that; if he
would study the verse he made reference to he would find that it had nothing
to do with dying and then being immediately present with the Lord, but
that I was trying to make him accept my beliefs.
First off, before we go any further I have been appointed a Watchman
on the wall by God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ, after the manner
of that spoken of in Ezekiel.
"I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel [America];
therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth [Study of the Bible], and
warn them from me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt
surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that
wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine
hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it;
if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou
hast delivered thy soul." (Ezekiel 33:7-9).
So, I merely present what God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ
gives me and I care not whether you accept it or not for I have done my
duty in presenting those Words to you. It should be brought to your
attention also that if one enters the study of the scriptures with a preconceived
idea about them it will affect what you believe about them and what you
will see revealed in them. That is why so many people can read the same
verse of scripture and come up with different interpretations; they approach
it with preconceived ideas about what it says. Usually because some so-called
"Judeo-Christian Minister" has told them so. And example would be if you
believe in a purgatory, as the Catholics do than many verses will seem
to point out that there is indeed a purgatory. But if one will approach
the scriptures from a purely studious standpoint he will find that there
are no scriptures which confirm either a purgatory or that Christians will
go to heaven when they die.
But there is a verse showing that a Catholic cannot pray his/her
loved ones out of a so-called purgatory:
"None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to
God a ransom for him. (Psalm 49:7)
Now back to the verse of scripture in question. Upon study you
will soon realize that to be absent from the body and to be present with
the Lord merely means is to be present with the Lord by thinking about
Him or in other words, to be present with Him in Spirit. That this is a
true interpretation can be found by study of the following verses, which
is not exhaustive, but should be enough to verify that what I am saying
We know the dead know nothing nor do anything until the resurrection
by the Lord is proven by the following scriptures: (Job 17:13-16; Job 19:25-27;
Psalms 6:5; 17:15; 49:8-20; 88:10; 115:17; 141:7; 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:5-10;
Jeremiah 14:10-15; Isaiah 19:19-20; Daniel 12:13; Hosea 13:14; John 8:13;
Acts 2:34; Hebrews 11:13 and 1 Corinthians 15:55).
Then Paul confirms that being absent from the body is spiritual,
and no by actual physical death when he said to the Colossians:
"For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the
spirit." (Colossians 2:5).
Paul then goes on to tell us when we will be present with Christ,
which is after actual physical death:
"When Christ...shall appear, then ye also appear with him." (Colossians
Then we have the witness of John the revelator who was in the
spirit, or in other words was thinking about God and Christ when he received
the visions as recorded in the book of Revelation (Revelation 1:10). As
he wrote the book of Revelation after he received the visions in the spirit,
it is very clear that he was not physically dead.
Now many who listen probably know the verses of the scriptures
much better than I, but we must admit that to "understand" the Bible is
a heck of a lot different than just knowing the verses and being able to
quote them. And to know the scriptures comes only from a study of them,
not in just learning what the scriptures say or think they say.
So, when this question is asked some will come up with the verse
as quoted in Revelation Chapter 11:
"And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come
up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies
beheld them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth
part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand:
and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."
Now, one can see at a glance at the preceding verses that this
verse is not pertaining to dead Christians. Many will point to:
"Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven."
It relates that a Christians reward is reserved in heaven but
it does not say the Christian is to receive his reward there. The scriptures
"...behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give
every man according as his work shall be." (Revelation 22:12).
Or they will point out:
"But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor
steal." (Matthew 6:20).
Heaven - Part 2
The Christians treasure is laid up in heaven but the Christian
is not there. Or:
"Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject
unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven."
Well now we have a Christians name in heaven yet still the Christian
is not there yet. Or:
"We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
praying always for you, Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and
of the love which ye have to all the saints, For the hope which is laid
up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth
of the gospel." (Colossians 1:3-5).
A Christians hope is laid up in heaven but the Christian is not
There is not one single verse of scripture which clearly places
a Christian in heaven where Almighty God is! It is a diversion which Satan
and the anti-Christs have dreamed up to negate the activities of the Christians
of the world. It is like the so-called "Rapture Theory" it is false teaching
by the Jewudized Judeo-Christian clergy.
The so-called Judeo-Christian Churches of today constantly teach
that this world is not a Christians home; that he is just passing through
on his way to his celestial home; that we will leave all this behind. This
is exactly what Karl Marx had in mind when he made his famous statement
that religion is the opium of the people. Indeed this false teaching drugs
them into submissiveness to the propaganda of Satan and his minions.
So instead of taking the dominion of the world into their hands
as God promised in the beginning:
"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them
have dominion...over all the earth." (Genesis 1:26),
in the name of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ, they have allowed
the Communists to take over the dominion of the world in the name of their
god Satan or the State. Thus when we really think about it this teaching
merely paves the way and makes it smooth sailing for the one-worlders.
Do you want to know why Communism seems to be winning in this
war (oh we know that the Jewish owned and controlled mass media says that
Communism is dead, but it is far from dead, it is stronger now than at
any time in its history), and it is a war, for the control of this world
over Christianity? A lot of it, in fact, most of it has to do with the
two false teachings of Christians going to heaven and leaving this world
behind and the Rapture. This heavenly mentality does not appeal to most
because it is a teaching that a Christian must wait until he dies to receive
a reward for his attempt at virtuous living. That certainly does
not appeal to the young because they are interested in living not in dying.
However, if they were taught the truth, that a Christians final
resting place is to be this world in the Kingdom of God on Earth not in
some far away place beyond the stars, and that as the descendants of Anglo-Saxon,
Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Kindred People; that the promises God
made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel and Joseph and their descendants were
promises made to them they would think and react quite different to the
threat of the domination of the world by Communism. In fact, Communism
would never have become a threat in the first place.
Also the Communists have realized a great truth that the so-called
"Judeo-Christian Ministers" the Clergy of Organized Religion have not taught
our people, that being; It is the people who determines the type of religious
leaders we will have; that our religious leaders then determine the type
of religion we will have; that the religion we have then determines the
political leaders we will have; that the political leaders we have will
then determine the economics which we will live under and that the economics
which we live under then determines the morality the people will have.
You think that is not true then consider this: Today in America
we have more abortions than we ever had before;
we have more rapes than we ever had before;
Think about the changes which have occurred in the United States
in just the last fifty years since we as a nation turned from Almighty
God and the Lord Jesus Christ and began to worship the people known as
the Jews and began blessing the state known around the world today as Israel.
we have more crime than we ever had before;
we have more dishonest politicians, judges and so- called pastors
than we ever had before;
we have more divorces than we ever had before;
we have more people on drugs than we ever had before;
we have more cancer than we ever had before;
we have more sickness than we ever had before;
we have more heart attacks than we ever had before; and have you
we have more so-called "Judeo-Christian Ministers," Preachers,"
"Evangelists" and etc. than we have ever had before;
we have more churches than we have ever had before;
we have more Bible study groups than we ever had before;
we have more religious broadcasts on radio and television than
we have ever had before.
Forty years ago:
Abortionists were sent to prison for murder;
Pregnancy out of wedlock was thought of as scandalous;
Homosexuals were known for what they are: Queers;
Pornography was despised and the courts sent those who produced
this filth to jail;
Marriage was sacred; Living together outside of marriage was considered
Divorce was a disgrace for both parties; Homemaking was honored
and day care was provided by mothers in their own homes and not in some
anti-Christ day care center;
Ladies did not smoke or curse;
"Damn" was considered flagrant language in a movie and was threatened
Houses and Automobiles did not need to be locked; A man's word
was his bond and to break it was to being dishonor to himself and his family;
Drugs were something you bought at a pharmacy or drug store;
Popular music was devoid of demonic jungle beats and words;
Eastern religions were still in the east;
Child abuse was almost unheard of;
Schools were in the neighborhood, and students prayed and read
The literacy of the American people was the highest in the world
(then the powers that be mixed the races and now the literacy has become
among the lowest in the world;
High School Graduates could actually read their diplomas;
Creation could still be taught as an alternative to evolution;
AIDS was a gift of the God. (1 Corinthians 12:28);
Our governments; local, state, and national, still promoted Christian
values rather than the so-called Judeo-Christian (read that Jewish immoral
values) values of lotteries, horse racing, sports and casino gambling;
Christian teaching focused on sacrificing for Christ rather than confessing
Governmental authority was respected and the Police were justly
held in high esteem;
The courts still dispensed justice and the judges were moral men
and women, not ungodly anti-Christs;
Socialism and Communism were considered a curse and an enemy of
In fact, we are reaping the curses as spelled out in the book
of Deuteronomy and Leviticus.
Heaven - Part 3
Yes, as the Virginia Slims cigarette ad once put it, "You've come
a long way, baby!" Like the ancient nation of Israel, we have been blessed
like no other nation. But also like Israel we have turned our back on the
One who provided us with these blessings.
We have become an arrogant and carnal nation wallowing in materialism
and indulging in the pursuit of pleasure. In the process we have become
the prime moral polluter of the plant earth. And like Israel of old the
wrath of God is hanging over our nation. God is calling us to repentance
through natural signs like the drought of the past few years. But like
Ancient Israel we have become spiritually blind while listening to the
swan song of the Prophets of Baal; the Judeo-Christian Clergy of Organized
Religion. And now we are being lulled into a deeper sleep by the anti-Christ
Jews of the Zionist led nation of Russia, as they cry peace, peace when
there is no peace until "sudden destruction" comes upon our people.
Can you not see the so-called "Judeo-Christian Ministers" the
Clergy of Organized Religion are teaching false doctrines to our people.
And that as a result the Christians of America and the other Christian
Nations of the Western World is all too much like the fellow in the following
A man was once taking a trip to Boston, Mass. from his home town
and was to take the 3:15 train to Boston. He's all packed up, has his luggage
with him at the station and is ready to go. As he is heading to the train
gate to catch the 3:15 to Boston he notices a machine on the wall of the
station which had a sign stating that for one dollar it will tell you your
weight and fortune.
Well he just couldn't resist so he put a dollar in the machine.
Out popped a card saying he weighed 180 lbs. that he was dressed in a brown
suit and was going to catch the 3:15 to Boston.
He looked around to see if someone might be watching him and was
pulling a trick on him. Not seeing anyone he scratched his head and put
in another dollar into the machine. Out popped a card saying "you still
weigh 180 lbs. dressed in a brown suit and are going to catch the 3:15
Well this just floored him. He then got a bright idea and he ran
to the rest room and changed his clothes so that he now had on a blue suit.
Looking in the mirror and satisfied with what he saw he ran back to the
machine and waited while a couple of people put a dollar into it.
Then when his turn came he put in another dollar. Out popped a
card which said "you still weight 180 lbs. but you now have now changed
into a blue suit and have just missed your 3:15 train to Boston.
So, you see the teaching about a Christian being caught up in
a Rapture and be transferred to heaven is merely a diversion and has served
its purpose with great success. That purpose to deceive Christians into
standing back and doing nothing to oppose Satan and his Children and their
take over of the Earth.
