Who will live in the spiritual world after they die? Is there more than one spiritual place for the dead to be sent too to live for eternity? Do some people just die never to exist again? These and other questions will be spoken of and answered further along.
The Spiritual world spoken about in this article is that which is for sinners of the earth. It is about sinners who repented and chose the Higher Power as their Father and His Son as their Lord and Savior. It is also about sinners who did not choose the Higher Powers. It is also about sinners that did not make a choice at all.
The thing that a lot of religious and non-religious people may not understand is what is that really is going to happen to them after death. Some people have never thought about it, some people don’t understand the process, some just don’t care and those who know but are not students of the Higher Powers may not know the whole story.
Future life in the spiritual world will be determined partially by the individual while he/she is still living on earth and by the Higher Power at death on earth. Everyone’s future life will be partially determined by their choices and actions of what they did and did not do in Jesus name while on earth. Some of the choices are:
- Are you interested enough in your future spiritual life to learn everything you need to know to be able to have a spiritual life.
- Are you defiant about a spiritual life or are you non-caring and just not interested in making a decision?
- Do you have the knowledge of right and wrong and have the will power to want to live a good and righteous life?
- Do you believe there is a higher power capable of creating the universe, the earth and everything on it, including mankind, and capable of sustaining it all?
- Do you believe that higher power is capable ending this lifestyle and recreating a new earth for eternity?
- Is it in your scope of reasoning to believe that the higher power has created a place for those who want to live in peace with security and the graciousness of the Higher Power, to live free of pain and suffering, and to not worry about death ever again?
- Do you want to live with that higher power and share in all the things He has given to His Son?
- Would you be willing to live in the Higher Power’s world with Him as your God and Father and His Son as your Lord and Savior if you would be treated fairly and loved as His son or daughter?
- Could you show your love and devotion to that higher power if He did the same back to you?
- Can you live in peace and harmony and show love to others who want to live with the Higher Power?
- Do you know anything about receiving a new incorruptible, immortal and spiritual body after death?
- Would you be willing to be a king, a judge or have some other responsible position in order to help the higher power overcome un-righteousness and disorder and to help re-habilitate as many of the world’s inhabitants as possible before they are judged finally for eternity?
- Would you like to know how all that can happen?
Believe it or not, everyone will have a spiritual life after life on earth. There will be two separate spiritual life’s. One spiritual life will be lived with the Higher Power in His new glorious city and heaven. They will also enjoy all the amenities of His gracious giving. The other spiritual life will be lived without the Higher Power in a completely different world with lots of heat, in torment and in complete darkness with others who chose not to abide with the Higher Power or was rebellious or did not make a choice at all. But worst of all God will not be there to care for you or ease your suffering. Both of these eras will be for eternity. Neither will die a second time.
Who is the Higher Power and His Son? If you say you don’t know by now I’ll bet you are pulling my leg! There is only one living, loving, gracious Higher Power who has a Son and between them they created everything that was created and sustain it all. There is only one Higher Power who is all powerful, knows everything about everything and is in all places and with every individual at once at all times. You cannot hide from Him. You can lie to Him but the Higher Power knows the real truth before you told the lie.
You can live with Him and receive His love and graciousness or you can live without Him and go your way. The problem is you don’t have the power to build a heaven to live in and sustain for eternity. You can take this to the bank, if you don’t choose to live in His heaven then you will have to live in His hell. Why? Because He is the one who made you and the world you live in and He will be the one who judges you and will send you to your destiny.
The real Higher Power is the entity called God the Father by all His children. His Son is the God/Man-child Jesus Christ and is the one who gave His life so all people living on earth could have a pathway to God’s heaven if they choose to. By repenting of your sins you are made holy and by believing in Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Savior you may get into God’s heaven if you do not give up on Him. God set that pathway so all who wanted into His holy heaven would have to go through His Son (that is those who believe in His Son as their Lord and Savior). If you will do these things, Jesus will put you into His Book of Life.
The entity called the Holy Spirit is also God who lives and abides in all believers. Together all three, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one but operate as separate entities. They form what is known to believers as the “Trinity” . They are one entity but operate as three separate entities. Thus God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit have the same ultimate power, knowledge, and ability to be everywhere at once because they are all omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent.
Please know that all the Saints that Jesus will have gathered from earth and took to heaven will return to earth with Him at the Second Advent (when He returns to earth for the second time at the end of the 7 years of the Tribulation ). At that point in time Jesus will take a few days to take care of several pieces of business on earth then Jesus’ 1000 years (Millennium) reign on earth with the saints will begin. This is when the Saints (all believers) will rule as kings and judges and in other prominent positions with Jesus for 1000 years. At the end of the Millennium or Jesus’ 1000 year reign Jesus will send “ Satan, death, and rebellion” to the Lake of Burning Fire (God’s eternal jail).
At the end of the 1000 years, Jesus will hold the White Throne Judgment and judge everyone who has not already been judged mainly those who have been held in Hades and those who were born during the millennium. He will make those whom He judges as rebellious to bow down before Him so they will know who their God really is. Then He will send those whom He does not keep to the Lake of Burning Fire and Brimstone to live in total darkness, in heat, with torment and without God for eternity. Then after all the unrighteousness, rebelliousness and death is removed from the earth Jesus will cause the destruction of the earth as we know it and then re-create the heavens and the earth to the perfect environment it was before sin took over in Satan’s time.
Then God the Father will bring the new city, the New City of Jerusalem, to earth which will finish or complete the glorious new heaven. After all things have been renewed and are holy then Jesus will turn the reigns of the reformed earth over to God the Father. Then God will reign over all things and be our God and our Father and Jesus will be our Lord and Savior. This will be the beginning of eternity. All the saints will live in the New City of Jerusalem with the Father and the Son and the angels. All those who are living on earth at that time will experience all the good things God has promised and be a son or a daughter of God for eternity. All the Saints will worship God and His Son Jesus with honor and glory through worship, singing, and praise and by living a righteous lifestyle, by showing love to all your brothers and sisters, and by following all of God’s laws and commandments for eternity.
This will be the best life a previous sinner could ever hope for. Can you imagine being able to speak personally to God and Jesus, live in the beautiful New City Jerusalem, eat from the tree of life and drink from the river of life, never to have to worry about food, sickness, poverty, an unsafe environment or death. You will be given a place to stay and/or to receive guests although there is no reason to sleep because your new eternal body will not require sleep or rest and there will be no night. God and Jesus will be the light of the new heaven. There will be no sun, moon or stars or seas. There is not anything more from the bible telling about the future life but if you consider God’s other rebellious children and how they will be living for eternity it is literally a difference between night and day. The rebellious children will live in torment and a hot and completely dark environment without God their Father and no Savior for eternity.
Which life would you really like to live and experience? What should you do? Tell and/or discuss this information with all your friends, enemies if they will listen and anyone else who will listen about what God the Father has offered every living person on earth. If this isn’t the Good News for life everlasting then don’t bother about looking elsewhere because there is no other living God and that only leaves man and man can only do the things man has the capabilities to do. Man cannot make a new heaven or a new world or make an eternal body. Man cannot even survive without God the Father. What will man do when Jesus does away with the old earth and reforms it into a new one? So, where does that leave any individual who does not accept God’s gracious offer? It leaves them with a new eternal body, a “lot” of heartaches, a very hot and dark eternal life and no chance of changing their minds after death on earth or after Jesus comes to gather all His Saints. However, at the end of the 1000 years of Jesus reign those coming from Hades will be judged at the White throne Judgment, they will be made to bow down then it’s off to the Lake of Burning Fire.
What can any individual do about it? Remember the only way God allows for anyone to get to His heaven is through His Son Jesus the Christ.
God had to remain holy and righteous. So, God had Jesus come to earth to live as a man, give His life in trade for the forgiveness of all the sins of all mankind that chose Him as their Lord and Savior. That way God did not have to become un-holy by having to deal with un-holy men. That way God, who cannot be around un-holiness or rebelliousness could accept Jesus offer to die for our sins and forgive all men who repented of their sins and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Those individuals became and will become sons and daughters of God and you can too if you have not already done so. The only requirement is before you die (which includes death by sickness and accidents) or before Jesus comes in the clouds to retrieve His saints, is that you sincerely repent of all of your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. It is that easy. Just tell God, in prayer, that you want to repent of your sins and tell Him about those sins and that you believe in Jesus and want to accept Jesus as Your Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit will take care of the rest in God’s behalf and God will send the Holy Spirit to live in your body. Yes, I said the Holy Spirit who is from God will come to live in your body for eternity. The Holy Spirit will become your link to God who will hear your prayers anytime you wish.
Know that there is nothing you can do by your works to get God or Jesus to accept you into heaven. It is strictly by your faith in God and Jesus and by their graciousness that you will be accepted as a child of God and be accepted into God’s heaven.
Have a blessed and joyful journey to God’s heaven.
Hearts can be renewed by Jesus. Christ can make a heart strong. God can create a new clean heart. The Lord can cleanse the heart and renew its spirit.
God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?
Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
