By our works, we receive four levels of: rewards in heaven or punishments in hell.

1. At the end, God brings new earth with the Tabernacle.

Revelation 21:1 says, "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away;.." That is, the present earth and heaven will be destroyed at the end. It begins eternity. The kingdom of God will begin in new earth and new heavens. That is, there will be two places in heaven, they are new earth and new heavens. Verse 3 says, "I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God." So, the tabernacle of God will be in one of the two places in heaven and the presence of God will be in the tabernacle. Verse 22 says, "I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it." The new heavens will have no temple. Paradise One has the temple, and God will be with the people through the tabernacle, and in new heavens, instead of the temple, God the Father and God the Son, will be with them in person.

2. Our rewards in heaven or hell are by what we have done.

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. That is, what we do good or bad here in our life, we will get joy in heaven, or torment in hell, in exact proportion. I have another lesson with all the details. So, let me give the link for the lesson here. If you like to know the details, please click the link, and come back to this. "Link". Now, let me read one 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. They think that if we keep on saying that we are saved by his grace, we will go to heaven. Are they try to deceive God, or to deceive us ? 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.

3. We are saved by what we do, but not by what we say.

We Christians usually have a common definition for heaven. Escaping hell is heaven. If so, 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 must not do anything for 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 to obey his commandments", but it refers to verses like this. "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 5:29 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." It is plain and simple. No other tricks or no other techniques. If we do good, everlasting life; and if we do evil, everlasting damnation. It is 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, ... 13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. 14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15 Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)" It applies to Jews, Christians and non-Christians; it is to all. God has the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, of all people. If we obey, we are good, and then we will go to heaven. If we do not obey, we are evil, and then we will go to hell; it is that simple with God. It is not what we say what we believe; but what we do, does matter.
