    The Bible very clearly mentions an eternal Hell in several passages. All sin must be paid for because God is just. Sin is either paid for by eternal damnation in a literal Hell, or by the sacrifice of Christ.

    II Corinthians 5:6-8 expounds upon our souls being either in the body or with the Lord, and so we know that we will be in Heaven while our earthly bodies remain in the ground.

    My Bible says there will only be one kind of people in Heaven, that will be the SAVED, the LOST will be in Hell. There will be people from all Nations there if they are SAVED. The 144,000 Jews will be the ones witnessing during the first 3 1/2yrs. of the tribulation period, when The LORD returns to earth. But remember the JEWS are God's Chosen People.

    Rev 21:4 and God shall wipe away etc etc
    and Isaiah 43:16-21 (v19) Behold I will do a new thing
    Are these 2 books talking about the same thing? eg
    When Israel and us will be together in the N/Jerusalem with Jesus being
    King of kings and Lord of Lords for 1,000 years?

    Hi Linda,. 144,000 is not literal, 12 x 12 is the number for the church or spiritual Israel, Jews and Gentiles, (the "new Jerusalem") the dead know nothing and wait in the grave like Lazarus did, (not heaven) for Christ's return to be "called" (resurrected). I agree God will not torture the unsaved in "hell". The second death (by fire) will consume them within seconds and sin will be gone forever.
  • Linda Morgan
    I believe that only 144.000 ( little flock) go to heaven and we will be in a death sleep. Until Jesus shouts " come out " at the time of the new paradise on earth. GOD wanted us all to live in a earthly paradise like Adam and Eve had. He wouldn't send us to heaven then send us back to earth. It's all in the bible.and he would not send people to a burning he'll. They will just die or stay dead.

    Brother Roger, we will know each other as we have know one another on earth, however, the "relationship" will be different as Bro. Anthony stated, the relationship in glory will be based as brethren in Christ. Be blessed ... your granny will know that you were her grandson, and will be glad that you made it over as a brethren in Christ. Be Blessed!
