'Heaven or Hell'
People are valuing what is momentary and despising what is eternal. But this is not what the Lord Jesus says from both places.
and will cast them into the furnace of fire.There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:42)
“And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’” Luke 16.23-24
The saved ones will have new bodies, responsibilities, home, reward, clothes, food, new name, they will be children.
“who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body…” Philippians 3.21
“… and His servants shall serve Him” Revelation 22.3
“In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14.2
“but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Matthew 6.20
“He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments…” Revelation 3.5
“…To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written…” Revelation 2.17
“He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.” Revelation 21.7
People work so hard to eat, dress, to have a good house, even look for a new body, plastic surgery, surgery etc. However, everything they achieve in this world will pass and stay here.
We are not a body; we are a soul that uses a body. All the needs we may have here in the world will be met in Heaven.
The Kingdom of Heaven will not be a tedious place as many thinks, a place without having nothing to do, in fact, it will be exactly the opposite of all of that.
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2.9
However, one of the devil's strategies is to make people think that the Kingdom of Heaven is a boring place, where the saved will just play the harp and fly like angels.
And that there will only be clouds and, in contrast, hell will be fun, with lots of parties, music and drinks.
