Escape hell, Go to Paradise, and work your way up, even to Zion.

Four levels in heaven, and Four in lake of fire

God has created people and gave good conscience in their souls. Until we become youth, God will not count our sins; since our parents were responsible for that time. From youth, those who do evil, will not come to God. Those who do good, will come to God for help, and God gives them the holy Spirit. This will apply to all people in the whole world. It sounds like a Christian thing, because of the name of the holy Spirit. But God is creator of all people, and he gives the holy Spirit, which is the Spirit of God, and it is also the Spirit of man, to everyone who desires to live a godly life. 

In Christianity heaven and hell are not new words. Christians think that everybody goes to heaven after death. They also know that there is hell. So, there is a fear that somebody may end up there. But nobody is sure. Even preachers are not sure, even though they preach about it. So, Christians cling on to religion in order to go to heaven. They attend church, pay offerings or tithe, ask for prayers, and such things to please God, hoping that they will go to heaven. But religious Christianity will take nobody to heaven, but they receive offerings, and pray for others.

When God the Word became man Jesus, the old testament religion Judaism was in place. Jesus told Pharisees, priests, and scribes to look at the scriptures, and know more about Jesus. Prophet John the Baptist told people about Jesus. With all that, the religious Jews and their leaders, the whole bunch of them, who were supposedly for God, who were carrying the name of God on their faces, teamed up against Jesus, and killed him on the cross. We Christians seems to be very close to God, we worship him to the point that we all are waiting for his coming, we call it second coming, to take us to heaven right now, even before we die, and we call it as rapture. We think that we all go to heaven when Jesus comes. But we Christians and our hierarchy are not different from the old testament people and their priesthood. If Jesus would come now, as a man like before, whip the temple merchants, call the religious hierarchy as sons of the devil, white sepulchers, and so on, and if our social set up will allow crucifixion, we Christians will crucify Jesus again. God knows all these. So, out of his mercy, God made four levels in heaven, and four levels in hell, to accommodate all of us, so that simple people may get into easy places. The four places in heaven are: 1, paradise, 2, tabernacle in paradise, 3, heavens (there are few), and 4, Sion, where God lives. Godly people are also given status; 1, believers; 2, servants to God; 3, Sons of God; and 4, Bride of Christ. God also made the lake of fire for disobedient people. God gives freedom of choice to all; and so, you can decide your destiny. If you are afraid of punishment, it is not difficult to escape, if you want to escape now. The lake of fire also has four levels. Please do not try to settle for an easy place in hell, since you love some pet sins. Escape total punishment, rather than looking for a lesser punishment.

We may Choose Easy or Difficult work to do.

Those who do not want to do good, will not come to God; but will do their own thing. But God tells others to count the cost, and to pick up what they can do. Let us see two levels that God gives to them. One is difficult, but the other is easy. "Matthew 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me." This requirement is very difficult. But, if you obey God in this level, you will be the Bride of Christ in eternal life. You will be almost in the same level of God in heaven. But it is extremely difficult. Jesus gives another status in an example. It is in Matthew 25:31-46. Scripture is given below: In a nutshell, those who help the poor believers will inherit paradise, but those who reject them will be punished. To help the poor in simple things to poor godly people, is very easy to do. They made it to paradise. You may have heard the famous story of the thief on the cross. In "Luke 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise." It is an unusual situation. However, he has done nothing other than repented and believed. So, it is easy to get to paradise. So, if we are not proud and disobedient, we can go to heaven very easily. However, if you strive hard, you may even become the bride of Christ. You better escape hell to begin with; please do not listen to preachers; they give you free grace and free heaven; but they themselves will not go to heaven; and then, how will they take you to heaven? At least, become qualified to be in paradise; and then, without losing that status, strive to become servant as the prodigal son did, and then do mortify the deed of the flesh by the Spirit as in Romans 8:14, then you are Sons of God. By one step at a time, you may qualify, even to be the bride of the Lamb, who is the Lord Jesus Christ. Then, you will be in heaven with him forever and ever.

"Matthew 25:31-46. 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal."
