Will you leave Heaven behind?

All too often preachers use the old standby of HELLFIRE AND BRIMSTONE to convince people they need to become Christians. This ministry would like to jump off that bandwagon for a moment and share with you what you will be MISSING if you choose not to go to the Kingdom known affectionately as Heaven. I hope to reveal to you what you will be giving up if you choose not to receive the gift your loving Creator has presented to you. Besides the fact that you will be spared the eternal damnation, plus the blessings and peace He gives to all those that trust Him. I am going to share what some of you may never have known...

Many of us Christians are aware that we cannot know everything that awaits the ones that have received the gift of salvation. Mainly because of this verse1 Corinthians 2:9, says, "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."

However, there are numerous places in Scripture that do give us a "prophetic peek" of what God has in store for those that love and trust Him. For example...

We will be living with Jesus in person!

  • Revelation 21:3, "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."

While residing in Heaven we will be blessed with the fact that we will never become bored at any given moment.

  • Psalms 16:11, "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."

No more death, pain, tears, sorrow, sickness, hospitals, operations, tragedy, disappointments, trouble, hunger, or thirst.

  • Revelation 21:4, "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."
  • Isaiah 33:24, "And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity."
  • Revelation 22:3, "And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:"
  • Isaiah 65:23, "They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them."
  • Revelation 7:16, "They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat."

Nor will we ever get tired by any activity we perform

  • Isaiah 40:31, "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Imagine if you can, running at full sprint for miles and miles and never once having to stop to catch your breath! Plus every single saved person that ever lived on this earth will be whole in every way. That means the deaf will hear, the blind see, the dumb will sing, and the lame will be able to run for as long as they like. (Isa 35:5,6; Phil 3:21)

Never again will we have to contend with emotions such as, jealousy, fear, hatred, falsehood, envy, impurity, cynicism, filth, worry, plus all evil of any kind will be completely shut out of God's eternal Kingdom.

  • Isaiah 35:5-6, "Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert."

Our bodies will be absolutely perfect. In fact they will fashioned after the body of the Creator Himself. Jesus Christ!

  • Philippians 3:21, "Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself."

The oceans of our present world will be gone from the Heavenly Kingdom once it resides on Earth.

  • Revelation 21:1, "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."

Not only that, but once the Kingdom of Heaven descends from above after the 1000 years and makes Earth its headquarters, the deserts of this earth will actually become gardens, on this re-created planet.

  • Isaiah 35:1-2, "The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God."

Ever wonder what it would be like to ride a grizzly bear, or play wrestle with a mountain lion? Well this too will become a reality in God's Heaven. The animals will be tame, none will prey upon others, and a little child will lead them.

  • Isaiah 11:6-9, "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea."
  • Isaiah 65:25, "The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD."

No more curse upon mankind.

  • Revelation 22:3, "And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:"

Nor will there be violence of any sort.

  • Isaiah 60:18, "Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise."

This also means no floods, no tornados, no hurricanes, no earthquakes... etc. Nothing defiling in any way will be found in Heaven, plus... NO LIARS!.

  • Revelation 21:27, "And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life."

Will there be children in Heaven? And will they grow up while residing there?

  • Zechariah 8:5, " And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof."
  • Malachi 4:2, "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

Think about that! All those saved parents that have lost their children will be able to see them grow up in heaven with all it's awesome gifts and glory!

Will we know each other in Heaven?

  • 1 Corinthians 13:12, "...then shall I know even as also I am known."

Will we have bodies in Heaven?

  • In Luke 24:36, after His ensure Jesus says, "...Behold my hands and feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Is it not written "...we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body..." The Bible says, we'll have the same body Jesus has, and He has flesh and bones!

Did you also know that besides the mansion that is built for the children of God in the city of Heaven...

  • John 14:1-3, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

We also will be allowed to go out into the newly created world after the 1000 years and build our own homes with our very own hands?

  • Isaiah 65:21,22, "And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands."

Imagine that, having all of eternity to build your second home anywhere in a newly created worldwide paradise, and having eternity to perfect it!

In Heaven we will also be singing and playing Heavenly music.

  • Isaiah 35:10, "And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away."
  • Isaiah 51:11, "Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away."
  • Psalms 87:7, "As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee."
  • Revelation 14:2-3, "And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth."

We will continue to worshiping God every 7th day Sabbath

  • Isaiah 66:22-23, "For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD."

We will be eternally enjoying the never fading trees and flowers

  • Ezekiel 47:12, "And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine."
  • Isaiah 35:1-2, "The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God."

We will visit loved ones, prophets, and people of the Bible.

  • Matthew 8:11, "And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven."
  • Revelation 7:9-17, "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes."

We will study the animals of Heaven

  • Isaiah 11:6-9, "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea."
  • Isaiah 65:25, "The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD."

We will actually be able to listen to God Almighty SING!

  • Zephaniah 3:17, "The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing."

Never grow old or weary, eternal youth and vigor

  • Genesis 3:24, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
  • Revelation 22:2, "In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations."

All that Adam lost will be entirely restored!

  • Acts 3:20-21, "And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began."

"How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation;..." -Hebrews 2:3


A few more tidbits regarding what we will be doing in Heaven. But first, think on these things...

Revelation 20:6, "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."

Have you ever wondered WHO we will reign over? Seeing how EVERYONE that takes part in the first ressurection will reign, who is it we will reign over? Can kings and queens reign over kings and queens?

So.. who will we reign over?


All the treasures of the universe will be open to the study of God's redeemed. Unfettered by mortality, they wing their tireless flight to worlds afar--worlds that thrilled with sorrow at the spectacle of human woe and rang with songs of gladness at the tidings of a ransomed soul. With unutterable delight the children of earth enter into the joy and the wisdom of unfallen beings. They share the treasures of knowledge and understanding gained through the ages upon ages in contemplation of God's handiwork. With undimmed vision they gaze upon the glory of creation-- suns and stars and systems, all in their appointed order circling the throne of Deity. Upon all things, from the least to the greatest, the Creator's name is written, and in all are the riches of His power displayed. -Ellen G. White, Adventist Home 548.1

The redeemed throng will range from world to world, and much of their time will be employed in searching out the mysteries of redemption.- Ellen G. White 7BC 990 (1886). Last day events 301.3

"Ye are My witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God." Isaiah 43:12. This also we shall be in eternity. -Ellen G. White Education 308.2

For what was the great controversy permitted to continue throughout the ages? Why was it that Satan's existence was not cut short at the outset of his rebellion? It was that the universe might be convinced of God's justice in His dealing with evil; that sin might receive eternal condemnation. In the plan of redemption there are heights and depths that eternity itself can never exhaust, marvels into which the angels desire to look. The redeemed only, of all created beings, have in their own experience known the actual conflict with sin; they have wrought with Christ, and, as even the angels could not do, have entered into the fellowship of His sufferings; will they have no testimony as to the science of redemption --nothing that will be of worth to unfallen beings? -Ellen G. White Education 308.4

The Lord has given me a view of other worlds. Wings were given me, and an angel attended me from the city to a place that was bright and glorious. The grass of the place was living green, and the birds there warbled a sweet song. The inhabitants of the place were of all sizes; they were noble, majestic, and lovely. They bore the express image of Jesus, and their countenances beamed with holy joy, expressive of the freedom and happiness of the place. I asked one of them why they were so much more lovely than those on the earth. The reply was, "We have lived in strict obedience to the commandments of God, and have not fallen by disobedience, like those on the earth." . . . I begged of my attending angel to let me remain in that place. I could not bear the thought of coming back to this dark world again. Then the angel said, "You must go back, and if you are faithful, you, with the 144,000, shall have the privilege of visiting all the worlds and viewing the handiwork of God." -Ellen G. White Adventist Home page 543.2


That's right! The modern day proven PROPHET of the Lord, Sister White confirms that which Scriptures declare! The Word states plainly that there ARE "other worlds does it not?

  • Hebrews 1:2, "Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;"
  • Hebrews 11:3, "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."
  • Psalms 97:6, "The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory."

Sister White merely illustrates that which is written with the eyes of a prophet. We will reign over those that live on the other worlds the Almighty created! And by the way, why are they considered "unfallen beings" on these other worlds? Satan and his minions were ONLY cast to this planet!

  • Luke 10:18, "And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven."
  • Revelation 12:9, "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."

And we are the ONLY race of beings in the Universes that will know first hand the knoweldge of "good and evil." Therefore we will be good Ambassadors for Christ on these other worlds. It makes all those trials and tribulations seem well worth it now eh?!

In other words...

ARE YOU NOW IN TRAINING TO BE AN AMBASSADOR FOR CHRIST TO WITNESS ON OTHER WORLDS?

OR ARE YOU NOW IN TRAINING TO BURN?

  • Isaiah 64:4, "For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him."
  • 1 Corinthians 2:9, "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."

"The life on earth is the beginning of the life in heaven; education on earth is an initiation into the principles of heaven; the lifework here is a training for the lifework there. What we now are, in character and holy service, is the sure foreshadowing of what we shall be. "The Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister." Matthew 20:28. Christ's work below is His work above, and our reward for working with Him in this world will be the greater power and wider privilege of working with Him in the world to come." -Education p308
