Answer: A study of “the eternal state” is rightly seen as a subdivision of the greater study of eschatology, or the doctrine of last must be admitted first that the only sure word of testimony regarding this subject is the Holy Bible; no other “holy book” or philosophy is as trustworthy or as informative as the Bible.

It is our great privilege tonight to open our Bibles to the nineteenth chapter of Revelation and to look at that great text which details for us the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Revelation chap verses 11 through I want to read this text, it’s such a powerful text.

I want you to have it in mind. Heaven is not egalitarian. The core insight behind the depictions of multilayered heavens is that heaven is not a single state in which all saints and angels are equal and all people receive the same reward.

It’s more complex than that. The same insight is behind the way that the rewards of the saints have been depicted historically. Joseph Smith rejected the idea that all people go either to heaven or to hell. Instead, he taught that there are three heavenly kingdoms where nearly all people will be saved for eternity, while only a very tiny number of people will not be saved.

LDS teaching on these subjects is found especially in Doctrine & Covena 88, and Inspirational books from the saints of the Catholic Church for reading and download, free. Inspired Christian writings with priceless treasures of worship, spiritual guidance, healing and help for the soul.

Since the Bible is clear that being there is better than being here, and being at God’s right hand is fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore (Psalm ), we can say for sure that God will give the saints whatever measure of knowledge they need for the greatest experience of happiness in God.

What the Saints Said About Heaven is the ideal gift for every Christian, and serves as an encouraging reminder that each day we spend on earth is a preparation for the ultimate joy of life to come.

/5(7). It comes down from heaven to the new earth and will land where the Mount of Olives now stands (Zechariah ). Each of its 12 gates are made of a single pearl (Revelation ), and the city's jasper walls are cubits (Revelation ) or feet wide (a cubit is 18 inches).

"The Book of All Saints is a wonderful gift to the Church because it shows us how the saints pray and because it invites us - by contagion, as it were - to pray ourselves." - Hans Urs von Balthasar "The abundant harvest of graces hidden in this theological mission for our times still waits to be more fully carried into the storehouses of the /5(13).

The saints in heaven have as much greater a sense of their unworthiness in their natural state than the saints on earth as they have a greater sense of God’s glorious excellency. For it is the sight of God’s excellency which gives them a sight of their own unworthiness.

"You alone are the LORD You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.

Revelation and before the throne there was something like a sea of glass, like crystal; and in the center. What the Saints Said About Heaven: Holy Insights on Everlasting Life combines Scriptural passages, saintly writings, and prayers from the heart, all organized into a daily meditation format.

THE EXCELLENCIES OF THE SAINTS' REST. It is the purchased possession; 2. A free gift; is the state of the saints in heaven. To have no necessity at all, is the prerogative of God himself.

A further excellence of this rest is, that it will be then surely the glorious harvest of the saints shall not miss. Heaven is spoken of as the dwelling of God; for, although God is omnipresent, He manifests Himself in a special manner in the light and grandeur of the firmament.

Heaven also is the abode of the angels; for they are constantly with God and see His face. With God in heaven are likewise the souls of the just (2 Corinthians ; Matthew12). Chapter 20—The Inheritance of the Saints [The various views of heaven and the new earth presented to Ellen White were representations of eternal was shown heavenly things in terms of human concepts.

Because of the limits of our human comprehension and language, we cannot fully know the actual appearance of the scenes depicted.

you're fooling heaven's gates. so you won't have to change. you're no saint, you're no saint yeah. so keep your judgment for someone else, i've. john the revelator saw the books opened in heaven. the holy ghost with god’s angels are the keepers of the archives of heaven.

there are five specific books or volumes of books that represent all human accounts that are preserved for eternity. the kingdom of heaven.

{5} "Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. Even in 90AD the apostle John said it was easy to be a Christian: "(1 John NKJV) For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments.

Latter-day Saints use the term heaven to describe the eternal dwelling place of all those have received the reward of a glorious afterlife. Heaven itself is comprised of three progressive kingdoms or degrees of glory: "the celestial, the highest; the terrestrial, the next below it; and the telestial, the third.".

The eternal state of supreme and definitive happiness with God; communion of life and love with the Trinity and all others who have reached sainthood as well.

Heavenly Liturgy The worship of God in Heaven by the angels and saints, led by Christ the High Priest, who re-presents the sacrificial offering of himself to the Father (Paschal Mystery. John says: “I saw a new heaven and a new earth the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband” (Revelation2).

We are being introduced here to a place of absolute perfection and of eternal immutability, the home of the saved of all ages. It is called “the holy. It is truly glorious because at worship the line between light and dark, spiritual and secular, lost and saved, here and hereafter is drawn clearly for everyone in heaven and on earth to see.

In order to be the glorious church we must be here to participate with an obedient, sincere. Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: wherefore I have desired to behold your glory, meditating upon it through a glass in an obscure manner.

But our first consideration is, why the happiness of the saints, which in the Holy Scripture is called the kingdom of heaven, is also called the City of God. This appears to me to be the reason. Question: "How does the Bible describe the glorified bodies we will possess in Heaven?" Answer: While the Bible doesn’t describe in detail the glorified bodies we will receive in heaven, we know that they will be like that of Jesus’ resurrected body.

Our human bodies are described in 1 Corinthians –53 as perishable, dishonorable, and weak, all due to sin. The celestial kingdom is the highest of the three degrees of glory. It is thought by the LDS Church to be the "third heaven" referred to by the apostle Paul in the King James Version of 2 Corinthians and it is said to correspond to the "celestial bodies" and "glory of the sun" mentioned in 1 Corinthians –Inhabitants.

The celestial kingdom will be the residence of those who have. The visions experienced by Sadhu Sundar Singh are reminiscent of Christ's parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man as recorded in Luke. Luke 19 "There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day.

They are all part of a single "mystical body", with Christ as the head, in which each member contributes to the good of all and shares in the welfare of earliest known use of this term to refer to the. Scripture describes what heaven will be like but still, questions remain. Thankfully, Rev.

Graham answered some of our most common questions about heaven before he passed. Graham’s wisdom here.Call this intermediate state ‘heaven’ if you like.

This brings me to the first really controversial point in the present book: there is no reason in the foundation documents of Christianity to suppose that there are any category distinctions between Christians in this intermediate state.

All are in .The Apostle John describes God’s glorious throne room in heaven and states: “Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal” (Revelation ). Later, John describes those who “have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
