This message and teaching of going to heaven have misled the entire world.
Jesus never taught such a thing. His TRUE disciples WILL suffer a GREAT test in future days to have their faith tested BEFORE they are SAVED for eternal life. (Matt 10:22)
To think one will escape what is to come by being caught up in some made-up rapture teaching (Jesus never taught it that is why it is made up) is a distraction away from the truth about what his followers WILL and MUST suffer through in the future days. (Believing one will go to heaven will catch one off guard. Blindsided)
If Jesus suffered – even to the death – so will his TRUE followers. This is the very essence of following in his footsteps. We follow him in life. We follow him through the suffering. We follow him in death into the grave. We follow him out of the grave. (Resurrection as he promised @ John 5:28-29)
No slave is greater than his master. (John 13:16) If proclaimed followers of Christ think that they will escape what is to come, they essentially believe that THEY ARE greater than their master.
Jesus taught – and was eloquent and clear – that no one goes to heaven @ John 3:13 EXCEPT the one who came down from heaven. We did not “come down” from heaven, we “came up: from the earth. God formed man out of the earth, not heaven. The earth – not heaven – is our home.
Jesus also taught that he is from above and that we are from below @ John 8:23.
Jesus taught that “The meek shall inherit the earth” @ Matt 5:5 NOT inherit heaven.
Jesus taught his disciples to pray that God’s kingdom come. Come where? COME DOWN to the earth @ Matt 6:10. We see it coming down @ Rev 21:2.
So, if God’s kingdom COMES DOWN to the earth, what need is there for anyone to GO UP to heaven?
Jesus spoke truthfully in John 3:13, “No one has EVER gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.”
It is the foretold imposter and counterfeit “Christianity” that does not speak the truth. It speaks error and in many cases, lies.
It has and is still misleading the masses.
Christianity has effectively put the masses asleep and in a hypnotic trance.
Jesus told his followers to “… keep watch because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”
Many have settled waiting for Jesus to return believing that his return will take THEM to heaven.
No, his return is to destroy the world (not the earth) as Satan is the god of this world (2 Cor 4:4) and to resurrect the uncountable numbers of people – ALL – who have died in the time periods previous to his invisible return.
His return and kingdom over the earth will last only 1000 years and it will end. The devil is imprisoned for the same duration.
During that 1000-year kingdom of Christ, the resurrection of ALL of the dead will take place. This resurrection will be to life on earth and INTO his 1000-year kingdom over the earth. The man who died next to Jesus in Luke 23:43 will be resurrected into the 1000-year kingdom as Jesus promised him.
When Christs 1000 year kingdom ends, the result will be a perfect human society that has been restored to its Creator. THEN Satan is released from his prison of a 1000 years and will go out to that perfect human society to deceive them all. (Rev 20:7-8)
Satan brings up his Beast, image of the Beast, and False Prophet and will establish them as his “visible” proxies on earth in those future days to deceive the whole world.
It is within the days of the Beast – which could last 100’s of years – that Christ’s TRUE followers will be separated from the false ones. (The harvest).
Their testing will begin at the hands of Satan’s Beast (a kingdom/government on the earth). A test simliar to what Jesus had when Satan tried to tempt him when he was in the wilderness and the suffering he went through at the hands of the Jewish religious authority and Caesar (the Roman government).
In future days, his followers will go through what he did. If they endure that – Great Tribulation – faithfully (even to the death), THEN they will be saved to eternal life on EARTH. When Satan and his Beast are destroyed, those faithful followers WILL inherit the earth, forever, not heaven. (Ps 37:11)
I am aware that this is something many do not want to hear. It goes against what they have been taught.
Peace, knowledge (Gods), and understanding (Gods) to all.
