HEAVEN! THE REAL STORY! One reason I like to talk about Heaven, think about Heaven and read about Heaven is because, after all, that’s where we’re going to spend Eternity, so it’s a pretty important place and we ought to be pretty interested, don’t you think? It’s our Eternal Home, the place Jesus has gone to prepare for us forever, so we certainly ought to be interested in it and want to know what it’s like and what we’re going to be like when we get there!
Heaven will be our last move!–No baggage, no luggage, no hard journey, no packing, no long travel! It may be a long way, but it may be closer than you think! You can’t take it with you! Whatever you have there you will have already sent ahead in the way of souls won, victories won, battles won and rewards won for your service here! Heaven is our Home and the Heavenly City our destination.
Heaven is not the end: it’s only the beginning. Heaven is going to be like this life, only better!–With all of the assets but none of the liabilities! Life hereafter for us, God’s children, will be an extension or a multiplication of the joy and thrilling, exciting lives we now lead!
Heaven is simply going to be an intensification, amplification, magnification and extension of all the thrills and joys and pleasures of this life, the Heaven on Earth that we’re now enjoying, only it will be even more Heavenly there, and forever, praise God!
Those who love God never meet for the last time. Heaven will be the greatest Family Reunion we’ve ever known, with all our loved ones and relatives and children and parents and ancestors and descendants and ascendants all together in one place at the same time, rejoicing and praising the Lord all together in one great grand Heavenly Fellowship Meeting!
Whatever you dream up, the Lord will have for you! I think anything’s possible! There’s nothing man ever dreams of that God hasn’t already thought of! Heaven is the place where all your heart’s desires are fulfilled! Put in your order! I’m sure the Lord will be glad to have anything there for you that you want! The sky is not the limit, only Heaven is the limit, and there’s no limit in Heaven!
Heaven is a place where you can get all you want of whatever you like. When you get to Heaven you won’t need faith because you’ll be able to see it and know it all then. You won’t need hope because it’s already arrived, but there will still be love because “the greatest of these is love!” (1Cor.13.)
THE HEAVENLY CITY
“And I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” (Rev.21:2).
Isn’t that ridiculous to show Peter standing at the gates of Heaven with a ring of keys? The doors are already unlocked for us, all we’ve got to do is walk in through the front gate!
We’re leaving this Hell of a mess before long and we’re going to go to our Country and our City to be with our King! I want to declare my Citizenship in the Kingdom of God and my allegiance to His Kingdom and His City! I belong to the Kingdom of God, that’s my Country! I’m from Space City, that’s my City! I’m from the City that hath foundations, whose Builder and Maker is God!
One of these days you’re going to a mansion that isn’t going to cost you anything!–No upkeep, no expense, absolutely nothing except what it’s already cost!–And it will be commensurate with your works on Earth, what you already paid for it down here. Even in Heaven, the most perfect City in the World, there are going to be different levels, different classes, different stages, some very high, some very low.
I’ve visited the future and I’ve seen the Heavenly City standing upon this Earth!–Beautiful, gorgeous, incomparable, almost indescribable, the most gorgeous sight you’ll ever want to see! A beautiful pyramid-shaped City like the ancient Egyptian pyramids, only much more beautiful!–That Golden City like crystal gold, pyramid-shaped, 1500 miles wide! Think of it! And 1500 miles high!
It’s amazing, the tremendous capacity of that marvelous final great Heavenly City that Jesus has gone to prepare and is now all prepared for us and on its way here, just ready for its new tenants which Jesus is going to raise from both the dead and the living in the Rapture at His Second Coming and take us all away to be there with Him!
I want you to really be able to grasp the wonder of it, the marvel of it, the size of it and really be able to get a good conception of its magnificence and it tremendous colossal gigantic stupendous size and beauty and splendour!
Heaven is the most beautiful thing God has ever made, outside of women, God bless them!–And in fact He even uses you women to symbolise the City and He calls that City His Bride, the New Heaven, the New Jerusalem! How about that? He couldn’t think of anything more beautiful to symbolise that City than you, you beautiful girls, so He called it His Bride! Why? Because His Bride’s going to live there!
It’s not going to be that hard to be in Heaven, or the Heavenly City or the Millennium, but you’re going to have something to do and something to keep you busy, and you’d be unhappy if you didn’t. Wouldn’t it be ridiculous after being so busy here if you wound up in Heaven with nothing to do but sit on a cloud playing a harp for a thousand years?–Much less all eternity! I think you’d really get bored.
Even the worst neighborhood of Heaven will be better than the best neighborhood of the fanciest town on Earth! We will be the inner circle who live within the charmed City, living charmed lives as eternal everlasting supernatural beings!
God is a racist! He has a special elite race of supermen who are going to live above all others in the Holy City, the magical, mystical, marvelous, mysterious Space City! The Heavenly City already exists and the departed Saints are already there!
Have your name put in the Lamb’s Book of Life in Heaven so you’ll be sure you’ve got your reservation confirmed for one of those mansions in God’s golden Space City!
The whole inside of the Pyramid on the ground level on the New Earth is one great Garden within the City, a great City Park!–His Heavenly Fair in His Heaven so fair! What exhibit buildings God will have! The historical exhibits, the scientific exhibits, the spiritual exhibits, to be able to see the marvelous wonders of the Spirit World!
You’ll never get tired of seeing all of God’s exhibits in His great Fairground of the Heavenly City on Earth where you can really learn the facts and the truth about everything the way it really was. How’s that for a great Heavenly Fair in Heaven so fair?
The City that God is building for you and me, not even death can pass its gates! God’s City of Tomorrow, His garden of the gods, will have no pain nor death nor sorrow!
There are going to be animals in God’s Heaven on Earth, a New Heaven and a New Earth! God’s not going to have His Creation defeated. He put those animals here for pets and playthings and companions for you and your children, and you’re still going to enjoy the animals.
Maybe it’ll move around, who knows?–So it can minister to different parts of the World! If it can float down from Outer Space from God out of Heaven to the Earth, then it probably can still float around the Earth and hover here or there or set down here or there. After all, it’s only 1500 miles square and 1500 miles high!–With God, a city like that can just float around!
It will be full of precious stones and jewels, and best of all, full of precious souls!–Immortal souls, saved souls that love Jesus and that you won to the Lord.
The City’s going to be very very beautiful! Its going to be like a beautiful beautiful park in some places, and there in the lower level where the river flows right through the City there’s going to be these beautiful trees growing on both sides, fruit trees with 12 different kinds of fruit, a different kind every month, think of that!–And leaves that’ll be able to heal the people outside the City that are still sin-sick, and sick of their disobediences and their rebellion against God. We’re going to be able to take those leaves outside and heal them!
The Heavenly City will vie with the moon and even the sun for beauty and splendour! We’re not going to Heaven, Heaven is coming to us! You’re not going to go to Heaven to live with God, God is going to come to Earth to live with you!
But there will be plenty of room on Earth then because right now, what is it?–Only one-fifth of the Earth’s surface is land, right? Whereas then there will be no more sea, it’ll all be land, seas will be gone. The seas are the World’s great septic tanks, its great cesspools, where all the waste of the World drains off into the sea.
The New Heaven and New Earth are like a double Millennium, Millennium for ever!–Double your pleasure, double your fun, double your Heaven that’s never done!
We will be able to travel back and forward in time and see what has been and what’s going to be, as well as experience the glorious wonderful present!
We have in effect renounced our Worldly citizenship when we receive the King of Kings and the Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords, God of Heaven, Son of Righteousness and the Kingdom of Heaven into our hearts, and have made the Heavenly City our Home!
WHAT WE WILL BE LIKE!
What are you going to be like in the Hereafter?–You’re going to be like Jesus! You and I are going to live forever! We will be supernatural, miraculous supermen in superbodies that are united with our eternal spirits!
People moving in Heaven move with grace and beauty and slowly glide along with their feet hardly seeming to touch the ground! There will be no transportation problems in Heaven –you can either glide along, float along or fly!
Our Heavenly bodies will be able to de-materialise, pass from dimension to dimension, walk right through walls and locked doors as Jesus did, appear and disappear at will and travel with the speed of thought!
You can travel with the speed of thought! You just think you’re on Jupiter and you’re there, boom! You just think you’re on Saturn and you’re there, boom! You just think you’re on the nearest star and you’re there, boom! You don’t have to have transporters, spaceships or speed of light or anything, you’re just there like that!
So we will have the might and the power of angels and the speed and the ability and we will be ruling and reigning spirits with resurrected bodies, but spiritual bodies which have enormous angelic powers like the angels of God, like Jesus when He was resurrected!
Being able to disappear and appear and go through walls and fly with the speed of thought isn’t going to make you half as happy as to see those you witnessed to, “Hi there! Wow, didn’t I meet you on the streets? Didn’t I talk to you about Jesus? Wow! Here you are! Hallelujah!” That’s going to be the biggest thrill of all! We’ll look enough like we do now to recognise each other, identify each other and know each other!
HEAVENLY BODIES & SEX?
In Heaven you’re going to be the same make, but a new model! All of the pleasures of this present physical life can be continued into the next life as well! The leaves on the Tree of Life are for the healing of the nations, but what are the fruits for?–They must be just for the pleasure of eating!
The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have meat and drink in the Kingdom! I have another proof that we’re going to have food in Heaven! “And man did eat angel’s food.”–Manna! So angels can eat food! There will be no feeding problems because you can either eat for pleasure, or you don’t have to eat at all!
Your Heavenly body is going to be an awful lot like it is now, only better. And if you enjoy its pleasures now, think how marvelous they’re going to be when your body is supernatural, really super, with more power and more beauty and more grace and greater thrills and more marvelous exciting experiences and love than ever!–All the pleasures of this life and Heaven too, and their continuation on the other side!
It looks like half the enjoyment is just having Heaven in our hearts and Heaven in our Homes, feeling Heaven in our bodies in the thrilling love and love-making that we have here and now on Earth in those ecstatic orgasms of the Spirit and the flesh, but also looking forward to Heaven to come!
All of the pleasures of this present physical life can be continued into the next life as well, since we will have a body which is similar to our physical body, but so much more glorious and wonderful and supernatural that it’s even called spiritual, but can actually materialise and eat and drink and be merry, have fun, sex, love and all of the present pleasures of this life extended into the next in an immortal incorruptible all-powerful body that can enjoy them even more there than we do here, and forever without ever suffering pain or sickness or weariness or death, just be absolutely marvelously Heavenly forever!
We’re even going to have sex in Heaven! How about that? Isn’t that wonderful? Love all the girls you want to and all the handsome boys you want to and love all you want to and never get tired, never be impotent, never have a headache, never get hungry, never get sleepy, no pains, no VD, no nothin’ except joy and praise and Hallelujah and lots of fun with your Bridegroom and all your friends and loved ones and the Family of God, His Family of Love, His children of God in Heaven when Jesus comes!
In Heaven there is no need for sex because there is no need for a shadow or illustration–just a need to enjoy it! Heaven is here to stay and sex is here to stay! We’ll be able to enjoy many of these so-called fleshly pleasures on the other side, like Jesus did!
The reason the church doesn’t deal with some of these questions about Heaven is they’re afraid of the answers! If you could have babies in Heaven, then you could have sex in Heaven!–And that’s horrifying to the!
My oh my, think of what you’re going to be like when you have your completely Heavenly body that can do all the things you can do now and more, including flying and floating and appearing and disappearing and walking through walls and locked doors and having marvelous supernatural miraculous powers of defense and judgement upon your enemies, protection for your friends, and to be able to help the poor humans that are still living on Earth during the Millennium to learn more about the Lord and love Him and serve Him even as you do.
How could Heaven be any better? I’m already living in Heaven!–A Heavenly Home with a Heavenly heart and Heavenly hearts and Heavenly bodies and Heavenly angels and Heavenly Love! It’s so wonderful thrilling and exciting and marvelous and Heavenly and wonderful and pleasurable even now, how could Heaven be any better?
Well, it is! Because we still have a few problems here, with enemies and this corruptible flesh and its needs and its weariness and sickness and pains and aches and its trials and tribulations which we’ll not have in our Heavenly bodies.
CHILDREN IN HEAVEN?
Probably hundreds of thousands of saved pregnant mothers are going to be going up in the Rapture, and you know good and well they are going to have their babies either in Heaven or when they get back to Earth in the Millennium!
I just can’t imagine a Heaven without children!–What a dead lifeless place without babies and kids! What a pleasure to have children in Heaven and to watch them grow and develop without the Devil and all his imps around and without sin and the Curse and all the pain, sorrow and crying! It will be pure pleasure to have children in Heaven!
Is God’s plan going to be defeated?–Or is He going to have a Heaven on Earth in which things are going to go the way He originally planned for them to go, with people having perfect babies and perfect children!–Born in Heaven!
The Lord may want to colonise other Worlds with His new perfect children! What’s the whole Universe for and all this huge amount of space if He’s only interested in colonising one little Planet? What an incubation! What an incubator for other civilizations! –Right here on the New Earth and the Heavenly City!
WILL WE BE PERFECT?
I don’t know how perfect everybody is going to be in Heaven, but anyhow, certainly a lot better than here! Contrary to popular belief in the , I don’t believe that the moment you land in Heaven you know everything! Just because Paul said, “Now we see through a glass darkly, then face to face. Now we know in part, then we shall know even as also we are known.” (1Cor.13:12)–That doesn’t mean you’re going to know everything right off the bat. It does not mean that you’re going to have perfect knowledge and perfect wisdom and know everything there is to know.
I think God has left that for the rest of time and eternity in order to give something to do in the Hereafter, and to learn more about the Past and Bible history and the things which have already happened and to learn more about why they happened and God’s reasons and His logic and the purposes and the meaning of it all.
You want to know about a certain period and what happened?– You go into this building and all of a sudden you are transported! You’re not just shown pictures, not even 3-D pictures, not even movies, but suddenly you are transported live by a time machine to that very time, that very age and you see it happen, you watch it happen, you hear it happen, you feel it happen! Think of it! Not only the movies but the feelies! You are there!
It’s going to be so wonderful you’re going to forget about all your troubles in the past! It’s going to be so wonderful you’re going to forget about all these things that happened before, those terrible things you’ve been through! Hallelujah? “It will be worth it all when we see Jesus! Life’s trials will seem so small, when we see Christ! One glimpse of His dear face, all sorrow will erase! So bravely run the race, ’til we see Christ!”
God just turns on all the beauty He can possibly create, and that final Heaven on Earth, the eternal one of the New Heaven and the New Earth will be the most beautiful of all and the most perfect!–The perfect government of God administered directly and in perfection in every way!
My idea of Heaven is the kind of life we now live as a Family in the Lord on this Earth! We live in Heavenly Homes, we live a Heavenly life full of Heavenly creatures, and a Heavenly work and Heavenly pleasures. To be Heaven, it’s going to have to be like this, only better. We live like Heaven already, a little bit of Heaven right here and now! What could we have more?–Only more of the same and better!
My idea of Heaven is what we’ve got right now, right here!–All this beauty and pleasure and fun and inspiration and spirit and fellowship and joy, all of this and more so and more of it! If this is like Heaven, then Heaven’s going to be like this!
Why not enjoy half of heaven now? We’re halfway to Heaven here in the spirit, and we can get half of the enjoyment ahead of time just thinking about it, praising the Lord for it, thanking the Lord for it, reading about it, dreaming about it, looking forward to it and anticipating it! We can have 50% of our enjoyment now just looking forward to it.
We’ll have all the best of this and Heaven too, the best of two worlds!–Heaven now and Heaven to come!–Heaven on Earth that we enjoy now, everything that’s wonderful and beautiful and Heavenly and thrilling and exciting and ecstatic and loving and marvelous that we enjoy right now, the Heaven on Earth that we all enjoy, the Heaven in our hearts that we already have, Heavenly love we share, all of this and Heaven too.
There are a lot of good people going to Hell, and a lot of bad people like you and me going to Heaven! Even Heaven would be Hell to some people because they’d be too close to God! Hell is the extension, multiplication, amplification, endless continuation of the same awful lives that the wicked people of the world lead even now! Hell is just the opposite of the ecstasies of life in Heaven for the saved and the blessed! What greater hell could there be than for the World to live the same lives they’ve been living, without ever any hope of it ending or ever being able to get out of it?
I’ve already got the Kingdom of Heaven in my heart! That’s my nationality, my citizenship, my Country!–A Country that’s never persecuted the poor or oppressed the weak or destroyed small peoples of the World like America has. It’s a Country that’s never lost a battle and never fought a war for the wrong reason.
My Country Is trying to save the World, stop the wars, relieve the poor, feed the hungry, heal the sick and liberate the captives that are bound by countries like America! I’m a citizen of the only righteous nation in the Universe–the Kingdom of Jesus Christ!
We who have found Jesus and faith in God and love Him have found Heaven on Earth! Those of us who have received Jesus Christ as our Saviour and our Lover and our King already have the Garden of Eden and Paradise restored in our hearts! We are in the “more blessed” category, the upper class who lived by faith and believed even though we hadn’t seen!
Only you and I who love Jesus and have Him now before this life’s death will be able to be among the special super-citizens of the Heavenly City, a special super-class of people! We’ll have all the best of this and Heaven too, the best of two Worlds!–Heaven now and Heaven to come!
Hallelujah for the Heaven we have in our hearts with the Love of Jesus, His Spirit, and the Heaven we have in our Homes with each other and our love together and our work and service together for Him. It’s really a little bit of Heaven right here and now!
We’re halfway to Heaven here in the spirit, and we can get half of the enjoyment ahead of time just thinking about it, praising the Lord for it, thanking the Lord for it, reading about it, dreaming about it, looking forward to it and anticipating it!
Make sure you have Jesus
