Who goes to heaven?

“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne,” Revelation 3:21 (NKJV).​

Those who are granted a place in heaven are called overcomers. But what have they have overcome? The scriptures mention three things: 1. the world (1John […]

Are there souls in heaven now?

Yes. A living soul is the union of a body and God’s life power. The Bible clearly teaches this definition in Genesis 2:7, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul,” Genesis 2:7. ​

The body + the […]

If Moses killed a person, and is believed to be with God now, is there any truth that even people with sins will sit with our GOD?

Will murderers be with God in heaven? Heaven is only a reward for faithful Christians. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (NET), “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived!… Some of you once lived this way. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in […]

An acquaintance believes salvation is through belief in Jesus. But he also thinks a person will have a second opportunity to believe in heaven. He believes God wants to save everyone. I believe people must be saved now in order to go to heaven.

In Matthew 19:17-30, Jesus instructed that to be “saved” we need to give up our earthly possessions and follow Him.  Following Jesus requires the sacrifice not only of earthly things but of our wills to obey God’s will. A heavenly resurrection is a reward for obedience during this present, evil world. (Revelation 2:10.) “If we […]

Why did Jesus select only men to be his apostles?

Only men are to be leaders in the church. This is based on the following two scriptures. 1 Timothy 3:1,2, "This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop (overseer), he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife…able to teach." 1 Corinthians […]

Please explain the new heavens and new earth in Isaiah 65:17,18,19.

 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create; For behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing, And her people a joy. I will rejoice in Jerusalem, And joy in My people; The […]

How big is our universe? Was this universe created or did it exist with God? If created, did God alone create it or was it after the creation of Jesus?

The Bible does not speak about the size of our universe, but it speaks to the amazing power of our God. Currently, science sets an upper limit estimate for the size of our ever-expanding universe at 28 Gigaparsecs, or an amazing 864,100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 meters (P. Bielewicz,  A. J. Banday, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, […]

Where will the saints of God spend eternity after this earth is destroyed by fire?

There are many scriptures which state the earth will be destroyed by fire. However these scriptures are symbolic. The fire and the earth are not literal.

Consider Zephaniah 3:8-12 (CSB), “Therefore, wait for me —this is the LORD’s declaration —until the day I rise up for plunder. For my decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, in order to pour out my indignation on them, all […]

What is the difference between the pre and post millennial Heavens?

The “Millennium” is the 1,000 year reign of Jesus and His church on earth. Revelation 20:6, “…they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.” There are definitely many differences in the symbolic heavens before and after Christ’s reign.

The air or the heavens represent the spiritual order […]

Does the Bible talk about climate change and flooding?

The Bible does indeed talk about climate change.

Since Adam’s sin, the earth has been cursed. Genesis 3:17 (NASB), “…Cursed is the ground because of you…”  The climate has gotten worse.  However in Isaiah 35:1,2,6,7, we find a promise of good climate change. When Christ reigns, the wilderness and desert will be changed into flowering fields.  […]
