Who Is Going to Heaven? Everyone!

Because of Jesus Christ, everyone is going to heaven: Christians, Muslims, Hindus – atheists and agnostics, too.  For more, see Everyone Is Going to Heaven.

Jesus was crucified because of His love for humanity.  He was raised from the dead to demonstrate His power over death.  Because of Him, you have no need to be afraid of death.  Or of anything else.  Love Him and be not afraid.  He is your Creator…and your Redeemer.

Will someone say that since everyone is going to heaven that we do not need to repent?  On the contrary, that everyone is going to heaven is all the more reason to repent!  Show your gratitude lest you be consumed in your sins here on earth and ashamed when you face Him in heaven.

Hell is the judgment on earth that our sins bring to us.  Flee from its flames and live for righteousness (morality, if you will).   The way to God is through Jesus Christ because Jesus Christ is God.  Live for Him!

  1. If everyone is going to heaven as you have stated, who are the righteous that inherit the earth (Psalm 37:29)?

    Jehovah resurrected Jesus. Jesus could not have resurrected himself. The one showing power is Jehovah and not Jesus. Jesus shows faith in Jehovah promise of a resurrection. This resurrection was conditional. Jesus had to remain faithful till death as prophesied prior to his birth.

    Not everyone is going to heaven (Psalm 37:9-11). And Isaiah 45:18 tells us that the earth was created to be inhabited by humans (Psalm 115:16).

    There is no text reference to Hell, Sheol, Hades, Grave, or Pit being the earth. I will agree that mankind’s action have made the earth a very unpleasant place. However, once they have been removed from the earth (Revelation 11:18), mankind will be able to flourish in peace and security.

      The righteous are those who walk blameless in His sight.

      God became Jesus of Nazareth to show us how to live in this world. He divested Himself of all divine privilege and lived with all the limitations of a human being. The miraculous works He did, He did by the power of the Holy Spirit.

      Not everyone is going to heaven (Psalm 37:9-11).

      Psalm 37:9-11 speaks not of heaven, but of earth.

      And Isaiah 45:18 tells us that the earth was created to be inhabited by humans (Psalm 115:16).

      Yes, this is true.

      There is no text reference to Hell, Sheol, Hades, Grave, or Pit being the earth.

      Agreed.

      I will agree that mankind’s action have made the earth a very unpleasant place. However, once they have been removed from the earth (Revelation 11:18), mankind will be able to flourish in peace and security.

      There is no temptation to do evil in heaven. However, as long as we are in the earth, there is temptation. The righteous (that is, those who live by faith) resist and overcome that temptation by the power of the Holy Spirit.

  2. 1. Your point is that chosen people will be removed from the earth. The rest will be left on the earth. We are in agreement with this point.
    2. Where we differ is the amount going to heaven and the remainder staying on the earth.
    3. Psalm 37:29 is clear about who will inherit the earth, and it is not how you are describing. Additionally, there are numerous text supporting and agreeing with Psalm 37:29.
    4. As for the translations of Hell, Sheol, Hades, Grave, or Pit, you should really do some research on this. I am sure you will be surprised since you are so adamant about your understanding. Many scholars a lot more knowledgeable than you and I have already done the translations. It is not hard to verify if you really want to be accurate with your encouragements.
    5. Concerning Jesus being God, the Bible does not teach this. It is very easy to take a scripture text and bend to support a specific idea. However, if that understanding that you are supporting is not in harmony with the rest of the Bible, either your understanding is wrong or God’s word is flawed.
    6. It sounds to me as if you are in support of Jehovah being God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. If this is your understanding, please provide the text that support this.

    1. 1. Your point is that chosen people will be removed from the earth. The rest will be left on the earth. We are in agreement with this point.

      Every human being dies. Therefore, every human being leaves the earth. It doesn’t sound like you agree with this.

      2. Where we differ is the amount going to heaven and the remainder staying on the earth.

      Look around and see that no human beings remain on earth. Everyone dies. The good news, however, is that everyone is going to heaven.

      3. Psalm 37:29 is clear about who will inherit the earth, and it is not how you are describing. Additionally, there are numerous text supporting and agreeing with Psalm 37:29.

      The “land” in which we dwell forever is heaven. Note the references to heavenly Jerusalem in the New Testament which makes clear that we should read these Old Testament verses (such as Psalm 37) in a spiritual, not a physical, light.

      4. As for the translations of Hell, Sheol, Hades, Grave, or Pit, you should really do some research on this. I am sure you will be surprised since you are so adamant about your understanding. Many scholars a lot more knowledgeable than you and I have already done the translations. It is not hard to verify if you really want to be accurate with your encouragements.

      I have done the research, and I have laid out the results of that work in The Biblical Case for Everyone Going to Heaven. If you read it you will see that I have not misunderstood the text at all. Anyone with an exhaustive concordance and a fairly literal English translation of the Bible can see the clarity and distinction in how the Bible uses these various words.

      5. Concerning Jesus being God, the Bible does not teach this. It is very easy to take a scripture text and bend to support a specific idea. However, if that understanding that you are supporting is not in harmony with the rest of the Bible, either your understanding is wrong or God’s word is flawed.

      There is no flaw in God’s word. The Scriptures are clear about the preeminence of Christ. If you will follow Him as the Bible prescribes you will come to see who He truly is.

      6. It sounds to me as if you are in support of Jehovah being God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. If this is your understanding, please provide the text that support this.

      Jesus is God. Jesus is not the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit proceeds from God. As for Jesus being Jehovah (i.e. “I am”), see John 8:58.

  3. Mike,
    1. Every human being dies. Therefore, every human being leaves the earth. It doesn’t sound like you agree with this.

    Every human that has lived has died including Jesus. We are in agreement.
    Except for those heaven bound, the rest return back to dust from which they came. Hence when Adam died at the age of 930 years and returned to the dust because he was dust to begin with, the human soul died. (Genesis. 3:19; 5:5) Further, Jesus and his apostles accepted, believed, and frequently quoted from the earlier books of the Bible. In those inspired books you can read: “The soul that is sinning—it itself will die.” (Ezekiel. 18:4)

    Jesus went to heaven sometime after he met with his Apostles on earth. The Bible does teach that some from the earth are going to heaven (Little Flock) but not everyone that has died that Jehovah has deem worthy of everlasting life is not going to heaven. The great crowd or multitude will be resurrected here on earth. This is what the Bible teaches and that is why there are so many references to the righteous and meek inheriting the earth. The earth has never been symbolic for heaven.

    Every person that was ever resurrected was done so on earth. They did not go to heaven when they died. They go back to where they came from, the ground (Sheol, Hades, Hell, grave, pit).
