Default Eye-Witnesses to Heaven - 06-24-2020, 08:56 PM

I am making an appeal not only to resolve a persistent question but also to know Heaven! The question has caused division. This division is foretold in

1Co:11:18: For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
1Co:11:19: For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

Paul’s voice echoes over the centuries and addresses the question of “What should I believe, and why should I believe it?”

The standard answer is “Because that is what the Bible says”, however, God ordained that there shall be Pastors that His Precise meaning is made manifest. Nevertheless, there are some matter that are hidden from all mankind and will remain so. Others become apparent and for some a hint or clue is given.

And here is the interesting point. It appears that there is a great revelation yet to be made, and as we are so close to the End of Days, it has been given to me, and Landover, to reveal it to the World.

Can the living ever know what heaven is like?

Think about that for a moment… Jesus says it has many mansions, there is no marriage, it is most richly constructed, etc. But that is rather like saying “America is the best place you can imagine.” Although it is true, it is not helpful. What we require is someone who has been there – an ordinary person, not Jesus. We require a living eye-witness from among the dead, but who is not a spirit conjured up by someone.

Are there people alive today who know what heaven is like?

The answer is “Quite possibly.”

Prior to the arrival on Earth of Our Savior, there was no resurrection: Those who were then dead, awaited the End of Days.

In Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, he remarks:

1Co:15:20: But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
1Co:15:21: For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
1Co:15:22: For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1Co:15:23: But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

Those that died after Christ’s coming, ascend to Heaven, are judged and then granted entry to the Eternal Life of Paradise, or their soul is killed and the body torn apart and burned for ever in Hell … or that happens to the soul – it doesn’t really matter whether it is the soul or the body or both: we are discussing atheists, pagans and catholics – the pain will be the same.

Some say that first person to go to heaven was the thief on the cross next to Jesus:

Lu:23:42: And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
Lu:23:43: And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

But is this true? You will note that this presupposes that Christ started his period of temporary death prior to the thief’s dying. If Jesus had died after the thief, then Jesus would not have died for the thief’s sins, but then, on the other hand, if Jesus Himself says you are going to heaven, is being forgiven is either here nor there?

There were at least three other people who were resurrected from the dead before Jesus: The Daughter of Jairus.[Mk 5:21-43]; The Young Man from Nain [Lk 7:11-17] and Lazarus.[Jn 11:1-44]. (I did hear some talk of it being a pity that Mark, Luke, and John should have made better notes at the time and asked the three if they had seen heaven or if they were simply dead, as per Ec:9:5: For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. And if I am frank, I would agree that if the three Gospeleers had asked the simple questions, there would be no need for speculation and “heresy”. So why the delay?

I’m sure that God The Father, Jesus, or The Holy Spirit have waited until this moment, when all seems dark and plagues sweep the land, to give Themselves the opportunity to let us know that Heaven is as real as my Faith.

The three forerunners, Daughter of Jairus, the Young Man from Nain, and Lazarus, all believed in Jesus (or someone they knew believed in Jesus for them) so they would have gotten into heaven if they had no sins, and being as they (or their relative) were “once saved always saved” they had no sins – in their case, Jesus did not die for them, so their ticket was belief.

After the Crucifixion, there were all the graves that opened and dead people came out of them in Mt. 27: 52-53. Now there is nothing to indicate that any of these people knew Jesus – some of them must have died before Jesus was born - thus we cannot be sure that they were resurrected by God The Son or God The Father.

There are, of course, a few verses that are worth considering:

Ro:6:7: For he that is dead is freed from sin.
Ro:6:8: Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
Ro:6:9: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
Ro:6:10: For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Basically, these verses connect Jesus with us – His death brought eternal life to Jesus and brings eternal life to us.

The three that Jesus raised, and the “Saints” who rose from their tombs, have eternal life. They are still alive and out there somewhere – you cannot die twice because after you die, you have eternal life and you cannot get to heaven without dying.

The appeal is thus for $135,000,000 – God has told me that this is the exact sum needed. With this money, Landover will be able to seek out the people that the Bible says have Eternal Life and ask them that question and many more.

And when we get the answers, you, the faithful True Christians who hav gone without in the Service of God, will be the first to know.

Please give generously.
