  • We at LBC Need to Discuss Our Accommodations in Heaven

    Many preachers and writers carry on about what to expect in heaven. Mostly, they do not know much about it. We at LBC have the advantage of preachers, especially Pastor Zeke, with deep understanding about heaven. We have learned who will have accommodations there and where in a various levels of accommodations we members fit.

    From the sermons I have heard, here is how I understand heavenly accommodations. The best deals will be enjoyed by our pastors and a very few politicians Jesus favors. I'm speaking of President Trump of course.

    Very close, but not quite as fine, are the accommodations that await we members of LBC who fight sin now during our earthly lives. These latter accommodations are for eternity and are first rate.

    Further down in quality are what lesser Christians will get, if we see any of those people in heaven at all.

    The views of others who have thought about this will chime in I hope.

    Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

    Re: We at LBC Need to Discuss Our Accommodations in Heaven

    This is an excellent topic for serious discussion, Mr. Mayor. As I consider the issue, I realize that I have never actually given the idea of what I will do in Heaven or what accommodations to expect much thought. I suppose I've always had a vague idea of floating around up yonder, praying a lot and being cheerful, even though I'm dead. I expect to be there for eternity and that is a pretty long time, so some kind of plan is in order and possibly some way of making reservations, as a result of consultations with a Pastor and through prayer, could be arranged.

    Housing is one thing but with an eternity on my hands, what will I do with my time? Surely they have activities- clubs, excursions, possibly golf.

      Sometime people ask over whom will Christians reign in Heaven? God is very straightforward here and we know The Bible is always consistent. I read the following verse from Paul's second letter to Timothy, so we can be quite certain the words are a genuine communication from God.

      II Timothy 2:11-12 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: if we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us.


      Faithful words indeed, as confirmed by The Bible, and words with a known meaning. Having died to self we know for certain that Christians will reign with Him. How do we know? Because God has told us. The next question we could be asked is "How long does Christ reign for?" and again there's no room for opinion here.

      Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.


      So that's settled. It's a permanent reign. That's how wonderful Jesus is! The fact of Christ's everlasting reign however needn't mean that Christians get the same thing. Over whom should Christians reign? For that matter, over whom should Christ reign if all the heathens are policy recipients in another place? I'm going to go all liberal now, just for the purposes of argument, what if after the second death they no longer exist? No-one can reign over non-existent persons. Fortunately there's no room for such speculation (obviously there are people coming up with nonsense like this down here, thinking they've come up with a trick question) because once again God spells it out.

      Revelation 22:1-5 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 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. 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: and they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.


      Christians, as servants of The Lamb, participate in reigning for ever and ever. Unless that's a reign over some void devoid of souls there must be options for different types of accommodation. Perhaps it's fanciful of me but I can just imagine a luxury river boat tastefully fitted out bobbing along with the crystal current; and definitely no hippies.

        Wasn’t Pastor Zeke putting together a spreadsheet or database or list of the different levels and who would be residing where? I know he was consulting with Jesus about it. Does it change daily? Are requests available? I want a front loading washer and dryer. The other requests were sent by prayer.
        Proverbs 21:31 KJV 1611:
        “The horse is prepared against the day of battell: but safetie is of the Lord.”

        Lord, may I serve my equine brothers and sisters just as I do my fellow man.
        Amen and Amen

          Oh, this is such a nice topic, dear Brother Mayor Hold, and I thank you for mentioning this. I suppose it's something that we all think of, every now and then; and, for those of us who are a bit "on in years", it is a topic that is close to our hearts. We never know when we shall hear the golden trumpet and then the call: "Come up hither!"

          Revelation 4:1 "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."

          When all is said and done, I think the most important thing is that we will, in fact, have a glorious home in heaven. Goodness, we would be free from the horrors that those unsaved reprobates will suffer for eternity, as they roast away in the fires of hell, screaming their heads off and getting exactly what they deserve.

          Matthew 25:41 "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels".

          Why, promises not only a home to servants, but a grand home -- a mansion -- and all because He loves his servants at so much!

          John 14:2 "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."

          As for what the mansion will look like, well, I'll leave that to the to decide. However, I'm sure it will be a very nice place, with beautiful gardens, fountains, waterfalls, abundant sunshine and just enough rain to help my heavenly rose garden along. I have no doubt that will be most gracious to us, providing us with homes that are just as nice (if not nicer) than the one in this photo:



          The only real request is that I be given a nice cabinet for my parlor -- a place where I can rest my crown and other trinkets when I retire for the evening -- something similar to the attached photo.

          James 1:12 " Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him."

          I Peter 5:4 "And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away."

            To most "Christians" The Bible is like a license agreement. They just scroll to the bottom and click "I agree". All those "Christians" will burn in Hell!
