Do You Really Want to Go to Heaven?

Updated on November 2, 2018

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

What Is Heaven?

The Bible says that the only way to get to the father is through him. This means that you have to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and worship him for all of your remaining life form, basically eternity. When one goes to the father, he/she is supposed to be purified and then allowed to enter the gates of heaven. But what and where is heaven and why would anyone want to go there? Well, according to searches done using Google, and in my own words. Heaven is basically the dwelling place of the most high. It is the place where angels blow trumpets and glorify the glory of their God for all eternity. Heaven is the place where good souls of humans go after they die. Sounds good right? You get hit by a drunk driver, you die and go to heaven where you spend forever worshiping God. I would love to put the question to you, do you like the sound of that? Being in heaven glorifying God until the end of time? Is heaven that boring of a place? But I find myself asking yet another question. Why do we need to actually go to heaven? Why would a being such as God want to be glorified? Wouldn’t that be insignificant of a powerful force such as God to belittle itself to the feeling of human beings?

Heaven May Look Like This.

Humans are the only species who love glorification. They love attention, lime light and anything which highlights them as being bad, good, having a great achievement and so on. Would a God have such simple feelings as wanting to be glorified for being a God? Yet, being glorified for all eternity? Well this is what you may have to do once you reach the place called heaven. You may be given a white robe and then slapped with a golden trumpet and given a music sheets with notes of glorification. Is it really so? Or maybe I am going overboard. Maybe heaven is much different that a trillion of souls with their mouth open all day. Maybe, just maybe heaven is that place where you will live in peace, happiness, fun and goodness all the longer days of your life. Maybe heaven has much more colors than a blinding white and people still interact with people, fall in love and have beautiful families. Then live a long and beautiful life until they have to transcend into another body. Maybe heaven is that place where. Maybe heaven is filled with clean unpolluted air and crystal like streams with lush green vegetation. Maybe heaven is that place where there is no sickness, nor borders and no differentiation in race.

Living With Luci

Well, that’s just me picturing a heaven I would have made if I had the powers he has. I would not have given any choice to man to choose good or evil because that my friend would be a dumb decision. Many would choose evil and would end up hugging Lucifer, the morning star. But have you ever wondered? How bad is Lucifer anyway? Is he the demon everybody thinks he is? Is choosing to go live with Mr. Lucifer in hell such a bad choice? Are we pre-programmed from birth about the fear of hell and the beauty of heaven that you would not be curious to just even take a peek to see what Luci and his minions are up to? What if those with elite knowledge are tricking the masses and telling them hell is bad and heaven is good. When in truth it is a flipped script. Suppose we all were celestial beings in heaven. Then given a body to live on earth. Then unto the final assent ion of going to hell. Where hell is really the place of magnificent beauty and prosperity. How do we start off in the middle of earth and by our lifestyle and actions are slapped with going up or down? Logically, we should either start at the top or the bottom.

Heaven?
Heaven?

Preacher, Why Lie?

I have always sat inside of churches and listened to many preachers preaching about the goodness of heaven and when you die you will finally have peace and rest and spend eternity in a marvelous place. Yet, when many of these preachers are ill, they spend huge money to cure their illness, deviating from going to that special place where their Lord and Savior has created for them. Why? Why would anyone run from heaven if they love it so much? Why would anyone run from heaven if it was a good place? Me, I have no clue. I leave you to do the detective work on that one.

Where do you prefer to go?

      it is not my philosophy it is the word of God, what the scriptures say. The new testament is clear, its the apostate churchmen that have muddied the waters . If you are filled with the Holy Spirit of God and ask it to interpret scripture as you study you cannot miss it. otherwise you cannot see it.

      Rev 20:11-21:9

      11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

      21 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

      5 Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."

      6 And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

      Well I surely do not want to go to heaven because there will be no on there. And unless I live until the day of judgement I will go to Hades/hell to await the judgement.

      I plan to do as scripture explains real disciples of Christ do when they die . That is to hades/hell on the side of the chasm that is reserved for God's sons and await the judgment. Then at the judgement, if I am still alive go direct to the judgment seat, At the judgment seat, hear "well done faithful son, you have inherited the earth, enter my eternal kingdom", from God. The I will be changed to an eternal being and Join God, Jesus and all the sons of God on the new earth to live in peace and joy for eternity.

      I do not plan to be one of those that has rejected Christ and died and went to the other side of the chasm and was tortured day and night until the went to the judgement seat and heard God say to them "I never knew you, cast him into the lake of fire for destruction", the 2nd death, gone forever.
