Salvation: Four Levels in Two Heavens.

"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

 

I am a retired pastor of the Church of God (Tennessee).
My name is Isaac Livingston. I am from Neyyoor India.

Let us see what is the gospel that Jesus Christ preached and what is heaven or eternal life that we will inherit? "Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." So, it is according to what we have done. Whoever give their life for the cause of Jesus Christ, will be the bride of Christ and will receive the highest level in heaven. Whoever live a holy life to become perfect, will be the sons of God and they will live with God in New Heaven. Repented backsliders, whoever turns from sin as the prodigal son to be true servants of God, will serve God as priests and rulers in the temple of God in New Earth, which is Paradise. Whoever is born again (born of the spirit), if he/she has not grow further, but has not quenched the spirit, he/she is still the child of God. The children of God will live in New Earth. If we are not born of the spirit (2 Corinthians 5:1-5, explanation is given below), we will have nothing to do with any level of heaven, and we will be in hell and then in the lake of fire. But, it is very possible that you can attain heaven.

"2 Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." Our souls have a flesh body (earthly house) at our birth. If we are born of the spirit (we have a building of God), etc. But if we are not born again, we do not have this spirit body, which is the building of God. "2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked." If we have groaned for the spirit and have received it, we (our soul) will be clothed with the spirit body, and we will not be found naked, when our flesh body goes to earth (dust will go to dust). "4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit." If we are clothed with the spirit (which will be glorified at our resurrection), mortality might be swallowed up of life. This earnest of the Spirit is our body. If we are naked, we will be in hell.

Jesus Christ says in Luke 14:28, "which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it." So, count the cost and determine which level of heaven you can afford to inherit, and strive for it. God will prosper it by his grace and power.
