Getting Into Heaven

Getting Into Heaven

Introduction To Heaven

Heaven, the placed promised to many followers of Christ once they have passed this earthy realm. It is written that no one goes through the father but through the son, Jesus Christ. What this actually means is that in order for a person to be eligible to go to heaven he or she has to accept Christ as their Lord and saviour and be baptized or reborn. Yes, that is it. Once you do this then heaven is all yours baby. But is going to heaven as simple as that? Is getting a slice of the heaven pie as simple as dipping into water, shouting hallelujah and voila! You get heaven estate? Does your lifestyle count when it comes to getting that ticket to heaven? Let us engage in this small discussion.

Christian Living As Non-Christian

As a Christian, you have to live your life like a Christian. Don’t assume that because you baptized a year ago and you give large amounts of offering in church makes you eligible to go to heaven. There are many whom believe that because they give big donations and they and church leaders are friends, they have a bigger stake in reaching heaven than those who give less because they have less. That belief and thinking is not Christian like and certainly does not guarantee a space in the pearly gates.

Not Following The Lords Commandments

The commandments were given to father Abraham so people can have Gods merciful law to live by which would bring a heavenly order to the land of man. But as far as we know, most people in the world have swept these commandments or laws under the rug. This includes many Christians. Many people who deemed themselves as being saved have broken at least one of these commandments continuously. One of the easiest commandments to break is thou shall not lie. Well, lying seems to be the order of the day in today’s world. Many will lie and call it prank or joke. While many will lie to save themselves or save someone else from probably getting into trouble. But whatever the reason is for lying, the end result is that you lied. Remember, a small lie can lead to a huge mishap and sometimes those mishaps can be fatal. Some Christians will break other commandments continuously and still expect to go to heaven and wrapped up in the Lords Bosom.

Begging For Forgiveness Over and Over

There are many Christians who operate like a broken recording. They will engage in acts which deemed non-Christian in matter. Then they will have a guilt imprinted on their conscience and then they may confess their sins and beg God for forgiveness. Then a few weeks pass or even a couple of days and they go forth and engage in the same act they recently begged forgiveness for and then beg God for forgiveness again. This type of person really has no remorse for their act and they believe that as long as they ask for forgiveness all is square and they maintain their ticket to heaven. But they are wrong as the creator knows true guilt and sorrow. The being knows the ones who truly seek forgiveness and will not grant an everlasting forgiveness to those who continue to do the wrong and use prayer as a backup plan.

Alcoholic

Alcoholic

Other Immoral Acts

Baptism and immorality doesn’t go well together. It is simple, you cannot have one foot in the river and the other in the desert and expect to have a good swim. There are many who proclaim Christianity yet are still engaged in immoral acts of the world. These immoral acts include but are not limited to gambling, taking drugs, cheating, prejudicing, racism and often time pretense. Pretense is a pretty interesting one as this is often done by some church leaders who pretend to be filled with the power of God and are patriots of spirituality yet their main focus is garnishing money to live massive lavish lifestyle. They engage in acts of those not following the commandments and they do it in secrecy as they operate like those of the underworld. They participate in these acts and expect to reach heaven when the trumpet sounds. But they will have a rude awakening on that day.

How Does One Really Get Into Heaven

Well, aside from what the Bible says about getting into heaven, that is to accept Christ as saviour and be reborn, there is no other way. But let us not take what is said literally as this accepting Christ and being reborn goes deeper than we believe. Being reborn is simply not dipping into water and immediately you are transformed. Being reborn means a transformation of your state of mind. It means to vanquish your choice of being capable of evil and to only accept the good part of your mind which is like Christ. Yes, you may have committed sinful and immoral acts before, but once you seek genuine forgiveness for yourself and those you offended and wash away that lifestyle and live good, you have just secured your heavenly ticket.

William...your ideology is appreciated.

William on December 30, 2019:

What would you give... to go to Heaven?

Would you be shocked to find out...

You were already in Heaven

and you didn't appreciate it

What if the true GOD, spoke to you and said:

There are intelligent children down here

They are asking some hard questions:

Was I ....the awesome GOD

of Power, Love, and Mercy

inside or outside of the buildings

during the recent school shootings?

How come ...

the all Powerful, all Loving, all Merciful GOD

can feed 5000 with just 2 fish

and yet millions are starving?

Indeed, it is these children who always find me first

The time has come for your eyes be opened

and I want you to ponder this for many many hours-

This world, is a world not created

nor controlled by me, the true GOD

It is a ..school..

I am nothing like jehovah

who claims to be in total control of this world-

which leaves him guilty and totally responsible

for all the atrocities that come to pass

Listen closely...

You, were already in heaven

but you couldn't appreciate it properly-

for you had no experiences to compare it to

I offered you to come walk in the very footsteps

that I myself walked when I too attended mortality

You were told in great detail, about the atrocities

you would see. hear about, and even possibly face

if you ..chose.. to make this journey

with your memory veiled

for this would be a world

not controlled by me, the true GOD

and would only offer a minimum amount

of help from your guardian angel

For you, are here to learn...

to choose good over evil

the greater over the lesser

Jehovah, was created by me, the true GOD

to rule this ..school.. of Opposition you attend

Jehovah is a lesser little god

with all the lesser traits of sinful man-

angry, wrathful, vengeful, jealous,

and yes will even kill in the blink of an eye

My ..GLORY.. is my INTELLIGENCE

I am watching to see

which of my children attending Mortality

will use ..some.. intelligence-

to look past this lesser pagan god

who kills, demands blood,

death, and an human sacrifice

to find the GREATER GOD once again

in addition to finally being able

to fully appreciate Heaven

Why did I bring these things to pass?

Because, In the beginning of time

I desired that all of my children

should inherit unto themselves a fullness of glory

that they might come

to a ..fullness.. of the Father and the Mother

Oh yes, there is indeed a Heavenly Mother

who has been slyly hidden from you in this lesser world

It takes two, to have literal offspring

and you will be once again

brought back into full remembrance of her

that being said...

I, the true GOD,

prepared a way (Eternal Progression)

whereby even all the children of my soul

might become even as I am

You see, no fault of your own,

but you were just not able

to perceive or full embrace with understanding

the good which herein Heaven dwells

for in your brief, but happy life

you had no real understanding

of the ..glory.. in which you were living

for you had been given no ..opposition..

by which to compare the things of greater worth

Possessing in yourself

no understanding of all our goodness

for you knew not evil,

and had no deeper knowing of all our joy

Neither had you known sorrow nor darkness

And so it was decided...

This then (mortality) will be the ..school..

where we shall send our children

For within this school of "Opposition"

you will encounter evil

so you can find and appreciate good

you will experience wrong

so you can find and appreciate right

you will experience sorrow

so you can find and appreciate joy

you will start with lesser things

so you can find and appreciate greater things

you will be given an imposter god

SO YOU WILL FIND AND APPRECIATE THE TRUE GOD

Heavenly Mother speaking:

Let us therefore, see for ourselves,

the God which our children shall choose to follow

the god of wrath,

or

the God of Love

the god of judgment

or

the Heavenly Father and Mother

which even now would call most tenderly unto them

Let us see, by what path

our children shall choose to walk

a path of fear and servitude,

or the path to endless glory and exaltation.

I appreciate your input.

Charlie, Before Jesus' resurrection he had set forth the standard of "Making Disciples," first in John 3:3- especially 8 and in Matthew 6:24-34, 8:20, 19:29 and in other gospels before Mat. 28:18-20. However, he DID NOT make things new with his resurrection, he pointed to the future which is why he gave John the Revelation on Patmos island. (See my latest posting "The World Ending Scenario" for how to put the OT together with the NT, if you want to know how the two fit together.)

Readmikenow on December 28, 2019:

This is a good article. I agree with it. Unfortunately, I've seen too many Christians disagree too many times on this very topic. All of us will eventually discover what happens when we leave this earth, as we ALL will leave this earth. Until then I guess we can only hold tight to our beliefs and realize they are our beliefs. We can share them when appropriate and be ready in our mind and heart for when our day to meet the lord arrives.

FlourishAnyway from USA on December 28, 2019:

It’s clear you have really given this some thought.

charlie from From Kingdom of God living on Planet earth in between the oceans on December 27, 2019:

This is what the apostate church men teach but does not line up with scripture,

Jesus is Lord of this age and He sets the rules, when he arose from the grave ALL things became new, nothing was brought forward from previous ages. Here are the rules as set by King Jesus.

Matt 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

He clearly tells us not to to honor man or flollow any other man than Christ alone.

In this age of Christ rule there IN NO CLERGY, NO CHURCH BLDGS AND NO WORKS OF MAN

Intro-- is incomplete, anyone following apostate church method this intro can not enter the eternal kingdom of God. They must also, become like Christ, and do ALL JESUS requires of them in this life, befilled with and follow Christ alone, and endure to the end and more

Not following the ten commandments.

Anyone following the ten commandment can not enter the eternal kingdom of God, they were given exclusivly to the jews and only were for, until Jesus. They passed at the resurrection and Jesus sets the rules in this age.

It is so sad to see millions of people following apostate man thinking they are following Christ.

Jesus gave us so many warnings about those to come in His Name to lead us astray.

Check the warnings and you find the only group to fit those false people mentionerd are church leader, churches and clergy, According to Peter, only the real disciples of Chriist ARE a Royal priesthood

Clive Williams (author) from Jamaica on December 27, 2019:

Your view is appreciated Donna.

Donna Rayne from Greenwood, In on December 27, 2019:

I agree with what Elijah wrote. One must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Only Begotten Son of God... we must wholly believe in him and worship him and by the grace and mercy of the Father when we ask for forgiveness for sin, and yes it may take many times on our knees for we have the fallen nature to repeat some sins until we get it right and our Father is faithful, just to forgive and we then can draw on the strength of heavenly Father to draw from him the things we need to help us to grow into nurturing, loving, forgiving Christians who help one another,

One must remember that there is only one way to the Father and that is through his son Jesus Christ, in whom I dearly love with all my heart and even though I am a sinner, his grace and mercy and hope gets me through my daily walks and talks with him! Peace be to you all---

Clive Williams (author) from Jamaica on December 27, 2019:

Thank you Ruby. Continue seeking forgiveness. Prayer works

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on December 27, 2019:

Clive, I ask for forgiveness daily. We are human and we sin. If we don't love others, no matter the race, we sin. This is a good article and we should take heed and try to do good. Thank you for sharing.

Clive Williams (author) from Jamaica on December 27, 2019:

I appreciate your input Brenda

Clive Williams (author) from Jamaica on December 27, 2019:

Elijah, your outlook on heaven is appreciated.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on December 27, 2019:

Brother Clive, Your premise isn't in accord with the Scriptures. First you make it sound like "heaven" is a place but Christ made it clear in Luke 17:20-21 that it is a state that on enters once we have found God within ourselves. That is further realized in all of his instructions beginning in Matthew 6:24-34, 8:20, 19:29, 28:19-20 and John 3:3-8. Except that most birds live in groups, all of those verses indicate we are to live "alone with God" as a wandering messenger as Jesus lived prior to and during his ministering in Israel. That is why it is so important to know where to look for God and heaven. When we communicates directly with God within ourselves we are living in heaven while on earth. That is the first step to entering heaven in the sky. Please think on these things.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on December 27, 2019:

Clive,

This is a good article.

It is great to see someone spreading the word about God and how to share eternity with him after this life.

I am not certain about the part on constantly lying asking for forgiveness after losing one's way over and over again...God does know all.

But I guess it depends on what is truly felt in one's heart when he repents.

God forgave the man on the cross next to Jesus.

I did enjoy reading this and I hope it reaches many hearts.

Thanks for sharing.

Good write.
