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."

1. Jesus Christ rewards everyone according to his work.

In the beginning of our lives, we all lived the way we wanted, that is, we lived in sin. Then, God has mercy on us, and saves us. How does it happen? Jesus Christ converts us, justifies us, and then he perfects us. Each of us respond to him in different ways. Some may ignore his truth; some may listen and obey some of it, or more of it; Some others may trust him and may go all the way with him. Jesus Christ will not twist our arms to obey him, but he just tells us to do what he wants us to do for our own benefit. "Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." This is the grand finale statement of our Lord Jesus Christ to his churches. Jesus Christ neither beg anybody nor threaten anybody. But he says that he will give everybody according to what we have done. Let us see, what may be in eternity for different people.

2. Jesus Christ rejects, converts, justifies, and perfects.

Jesus Christ chose ordinary people for him, whereas he has rejected the scribes, pharisees, priests, and hypocrites as the sons of the devil, (John 8:44). Jesus Christ and his disciples preached people to repent. He gave commandments for people to obey to inherit the kingdom of God. But he was mainly shaping his disciples for future ministry. He took twelve of his disciples and promoted them as apostles. After his death and resurrection, he has given the baptism of the Holy Ghost and power to his followers. Jesus Christ gave them gifts and tremendous power to heal the sick, to do miracles, even to cast out devils. They began their ministry, many people joined them. Those, who repented for sins, took water baptism, joined church, and churches grew. Gentiles were added to the church. Jesus Christ gives the holy spirit to believers and gives them power to live for God, to overcome sins and to be converted. Galatians 5:16-17 says, we must walk in the Spirit to be converted from worldly life, to holy righteous life. This is called justified, or by this God made us just people. Most churches call sinners as justified, that is fake. If God made them righteous, that is if they are truly justified, then they are qualified to be in heaven. Then, Jesus Christ gives ministers to churches, to perfect the justified.  Ephesians 4:11-13 says that God gives ministers to make them grow, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ." With all this power, the holy Spirit, and the ministers of God, they will grow and become perfect. These perfected people will have inheritance in heaven.

3. If we are Resurrected and Glorified, we will be in Heaven.

If we are born of the spirit, our spirit body will be glorified in the resurrection. Our glories will vary according to our works, that is what we have done in our lives. So, we will have different kinds of glory in eternity. Paradise, which is new earth, and new heaven will be in eternity. The glory at the garden of Eden covered the nakedness of Adam and Eve. The glory of sons of God at new heaven will be like the glory of Jesus at his coming, and that will be as bright as the sun. So, their glory and rewards will differ much. If we do righteousness and holiness, we will receive our rewards in one of the four places in heaven. But if we do unjust, we will be punished in hell.

4. Children & Servants to Paradise: Sons & Bride to New Heaven.

Galatians 3:24-26 say that the law was schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, and you will be children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. So, if you are righteous, and as long as you are in the process to be justified by faith, you will be children. After you succeed the process, and begin to live by faith, you will be in the next level. Servants are between children and sons. Children will go to paradise, and Servants will go to the Temple in paradise. Romans 8:13&14 says, if you are lead of the Spirit, and mortify the deeds of the body through the Spirit, you are son of God. The proof that we are sons of God is that "the world know us not, because it knew him not," according to 1 John 3:1. If we are of the world, we are not sons of God. The glory of the Sons of God will be like Jesus Christ and they will be in new heaven. Now let us see who the bride of Christ is, and where will she be. 1 John 3:2&3 says that the bride of Christ will purify herself even as Jesus Christ is pure. Only who live the life of Jesus Christ will be the bride of Christ, but no one else. In John 14:3, Jesus tells the bride, "I will receive you unto myself." So, the bride of Christ will be with Jesus Christ all the time. Please plan to go to heaven. If you do not plan, you will not go to heaven.
