We receive different level in Heaven or hell by Works

"Mark 16:15 preach the gospel to every creature. Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega .. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, .. they .. have right to the tree of life, and .. enter .. the city."

The final statement of the Lord Jesus Christ is in Revelation 22. "12 says, my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be, and in 14 he says Blessed are they that do his commandments." 'According to' means; 'in proportion to'. So, our reward in heaven, or our punishment in hell, will be in proportion to what we have done on earth. There are four broad categories of rewards in heaven. There are a few in hell also, but I do not know how many. Jesus says this in John 14:2&3. "2 In my Father's house are many mansions: .. 3 .. I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." Verse 2 says, there are mansions already there. It is for those who are in the status of children, and it is paradise, or new earth. In verse 3, Jesus Christ will be preparing a place for the sons of God in new heavens. Jesus will receive the bride unto himself. 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 what kind of work you are purposed to do; and strive to achieve that level. God will prosper your effort by giving his grace and power, according to the measure that you will require. But, you have to pick up your choice, and be dedicated to it. More details for the four levels in heaven, are in my sites, and the link for the clip is on the board.

We Christians usually have a common definition for heaven. Escaping hell is heaven. It is an acquittal in the court of God. Then we back it up with Ephesians 2:8&9. "8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast." So, churches teach that salvation is the gift of God and we cannot do anything about it, because it is not by our works, or by what we do. So, leave it in the hands of Jesus, and he will take care of the acquittal, and we will be free. And it is heaven. But the phrase "not by works" does not mean, not by obeying his commandments, but it refer things like these. "Acts 15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved." So, it is circumcision, and Ephesians 2:15 says, it is the law of commandments contained in ordinances, ceremonies, traditions, and similar things, which they boast about. We don't have to do those things. However, God repeatedly says that his rewards, which are eternal in heaven or in hell, are all according to what we do, as we live on earth. Let us verify it with scriptures. "Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. John 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation." No other tricks or no other techniques. If we do good, everlasting life; and done evil, everlasting damnation. It is pure scripture, with no interpretation. "Romans 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: 8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is no respect of persons with God." Whether we are Jews or Christians, God do not care. God has the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, of all human being on the world. If we obey, we are good. If we do not obey, we are evil. 'The Good' go to heaven, and 'the Evil' go to hell, it is that simple with God. It is not what we say that we believe, but what we do does matter.

1 Corinthians 3:8, 2 Corinthians 5:10&11, 2 Corinthians 11:15, 2 Timothy 4:14, 1 Peter 1:16&17, Revelation 2:23, & 18:5&6, all says the same thing, that our rewards in heaven or hell are according to what we do here on earth. Let me read one more scripture passage. "Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." In spite of all these references, preachers blindly say that salvation is not by works, or by what we do. For them, it is by what we say. Are they deceiving God? If they think that God can be fooled, are they not foolish? It is; they sold themselves to Satan. So God will cast them in the lake of fire, along with Satan. They have deceived millions of innocent and ignorant souls. Let US escape from their deception and go to heaven.

God Bless You
