Image result for pics of absent from heaven

 

By Grant Phillips

I’m just contemplating today those things that will not be in Heaven that we face daily on earth. What I write will be of no surprise, at least to those who long for our eternal home. Obviously, I could never mention everything that will be absent in Heaven, so I’ll just jot down a few things that come to mind.

The greatest tragedy though is all the billions of people who will not be in Heaven because they did not take the “narrow road” of life, the road that identifies Jesus Christ as the only way to the Father.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14 NIV)

First of all, we won’t have to worry about ourselves and those we love being afflicted with any kind of disease or illness. Everything from bad colds to cancer will not exist. There will be no broken bones, bruises and cuts. There will be no failing eyesight and hearing. There will be no wheel chairs, prosthetics, and canes. There will be no ambulances, hospitals, or nursing homes. There will be no cemeteries since no one will die.

There will be no police force, courts and prisons since there will be no crime. No Cain will rise up to murder his brother. There will be no locks since no one will covet and steal. There will be no lies and deception, no scams from ‘snake oil salesmen.’

Broken homes, hunger and loneliness will not inhabit our eternal state. There will be no drug-induced children, alcoholic mothers or abusive fathers. There will be no shortage of love; love from our God, and Godly love among all His children. There will be no jealousy, bitterness, or boasting, unless it is boasting in Christ. There will be no reprobate minds, egotism, or pride.

There will be no trash on the highway, graffiti on the wall, deadly cold of the Artic or blistering heat of the desert. There will be no junkyards, weeds or smelly swamps. There will be no burned forests, flooded coastal lands or damage from winds.

The Bible even pinpoints a non-inclusive list of those things that will not be in Heaven.

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NASB) (emphasis mine)

It is important that I pause here and emphasize verse eleven of this same passage.

“Such WERE (emphasis mine) some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:11 NASB)

One or more of these sins may be attributable to someone now, but they can be permanently removed by the blood of Jesus Christ by simply calling upon Him to be saved. Put your trust in Him, and He will wash you, sanctify (consecrate) you, and justify (render righteous) you in His name and Spirit. They can, through the power of Jesus, no longer be a part of your life if you are willing to trust Him and allow Him to live in you.

Moving on, there will be no Satan and none of his demonic followers. There will be no temptation and no sin. There will be nothing unholy or unclean. There will be no false prophets, no tears, and no anxieties. There will be no one breaking any of God’s commands. We will all …

“…Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37, 39 NIV)

Because of Jesus placing His cloak of righteousness upon us, we will be able to live in truth and righteousness with sin no longer impeding our walk with Him.

“At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.” (John 14:20)

“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. (John 15:4)

By Him living in us, we can live for Him as we were meant to in the beginning, not as robots, but as free agents.

I have only listed a few things that come to mind of the things that will not be in Heaven. Read the Word and think on these thinks and you will see many more. For the Christian, Heaven is our true home, but what really makes it a ‘home’ is because we will be with our Creator, God, Savior and Lord, fellowshipping with Him, enjoying His love in worship and praise.

    NO MAN ASCENDS TO HEAVEN ACCEPT THE SON OF MAN JESUS CHRIST. ASCENDING TO HEAVEN WAS LUCIFER’S ASPIRATION, IT WAS NEVER PART OF GOD’S PLAN FOR MANKIND.

    Isaiah 14:12-14 (KJV) How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

    Jesus reaffirms that man does not ascend to heaven by saying in the Bible’s Book of John that nobody goes to heaven accept him.

    John 3:12-13 (KJV) If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

    In the Book of Mathew this reality is again made clear through the Lord’s Prayer given to man by Christ himself as the example of to whom and for what to pray for.

    Matthew 6:10 (KJV) Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

    GOD’S PLAN IS ACTUALLY TOTALLY OPPOSITE OF ASCENDING TO HEAVEN.

    Revelation 21:2-8 (KJV) And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    Okay now lets examine the “SECOND DEATH” a feature that clearly debunks the ascending to heaven fantasy once and for all. Lets see what scripture says about it.

    Revelation 20:4-6 (KJV) And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 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.

    This passage refers first to the 144,000 tried and true who have been selected by God to assist Christ during his millennial reign. As Christ was these people are to be resurrected to spirit. This is why they are not subject to the “second death.” this is the first resurrection that occurs when Jesus arrives for the second coming.

    The second resurrection for the rest of the dead occurs after the millennium or AFTER the thousand years are finished. These people unlike their predecessors are to be resurrected into a restored physical body. They will be giving an evaluation period where they can see for themselves the glory of God’s work. If they still reject God and refuse to repent of their sin they will return to their former state of death. They will return to the grave, to the ground, from the dust they came, to dust they will return. This time for good. There will be no future hope for resurrection.

    At this point the party is over, they’re existence is done, finished, kaput similar to incinerated trash they’re gone for all eternity. This is the eternal punishment represented symbolically by the term “fire and brimstone.” Try to keep in mind the wage for sin is death not torture by fire. Unless Yahweh is a liar, and we know that’s not possible, Hell is just another myth, false doctrine, a lie created to mislead the world.

    Let me be candid here. Those that accept the false ascending to heaven/descending to hell narrative commonly embrace significant elements of sun worship or Baal. They worship their perverted version of God on the first day of the week which does not correspond with God’s seventh day Sabbath. Sunday or sun-day is the day of the week set aside in Baal for the worship of Nimrod and Mithra.

    Exodus 20:8-11 (KJV) Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    Deuteronomy 5:12-15 (KJV) Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee. 13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: 14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou. 15 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the Lord thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.

    They falsely contend that the sabbath requirement, or forth commandment was done away with, or nailed to the cross. They honor all nine other commandments but ignore the Sabbath. Here’s what Jesus had to say about the Sabbath being outdated.

    Matthew 5:17-19 (KJV) Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of
    heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    They also honor Ishtar or Eostre replacing God’s annual Passover Celebration with the tradition of Easter. Easter cunningly removes from existence the proof Jesus gave the Pharisees that he was God’s son the Messiah. Jesus prophesied after his death he would remain in the heart of the earth for three days and nights. The false doctrine contends that Jesus died from severe beatings and crucifixion late Friday afternoon. He was then to have been resurrected by God early Sunday morning. This inaccuracy denies Christ’s prophesy making him a liar and rendering his proof void.

    It’s pretty slick how the wicked have accomplished their stealth attack. As we can see in the following scripture that is referring to one of God’s annual Holy Days, Atonement the Sabbath begins and ends at dusk. A days is defined here and elsewhere as being from evening to evening.

    Leviticus 23:28-32 (ESV) And you shall not do any work on that very day, for it is a Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. 29 For whoever is not afflicted on that very day shall be cut off from his people. 30 And whoever does any work on that very day, that person I will destroy from among his people. 31 You shall not do any work. It is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. 32 It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict yourselves. On the ninth day of the month beginning at evening, from evening to evening shall you keep your Sabbath.”

    If we use God’s definition of a day the period of time between Friday afternoon and Sunday morning falls noticeably short of what Jesus had promised the Pharisees as proof he was God’s son. See the importance of detail! Satan is the father of the lie, he’s slicker than greased snot.

    Next, they celebrate Jesus Christ’s birth on Nimrods December 25th birthday. They conduct this blasphemous celebration while at the same time confessing Jesus was actually born at the end of harvest, not during the dead of winter.

    These pieces of doctrine are all derivatives of sun worship or Baal. If you recall this is the very reason that the sons of Israel were forced to wander in the wilderness for forty years after being freed from Egyptian captivity. I urge any who share these practices or beliefs to come out of her, the harlot. Time is short as we are living in the last days of mans self rule. Those would tightly grasp the false teaching of the harlot and her offspring will be destroyed, they will not inherit the promise.

    I offer this out of love,

    A Student of the Word
