First, annihilationism does not fit the biblical evidence. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. Here, then, is what I experienced: my map of Heaven. Some of these people really might have experienced life after death and are sharing a genuine tale of continued survival even after their physical demise. That is a religious experience based on a belief system and preconceptions.
I live in Russia, where superstition and religion go hand in hand to some extent. They tell us that while God and Jesus Christ reign on high at the heavenly throne, they are not surrounded by human beings. To reign and rule with Jesus Christ on earth. Those who hate God and who choose evil instead of good, will not be in heaven. The answer is very logical: of course not. Your conscious memory may not remember everything you have gone through in this life.
Granted, this biblical teaching on hell is not a popular one, as many people -- even professing Christians -- try to minimize it in many ways. In Sacred Scripture the angels who have fallen away from God are called devils or demons. This idea seems to be an extant theme in contemporary scientific-cosmological explanations about where we've come from and where we are going. I guess it would be a living hell to be in the presence of beautiful virgin girls as they say and be absolutely impotent sexually. Then I had a vision? That is real and no one can take that away from you. It is not like you see pictured where the Devil is poking people with a pitchfork or where there will be others gathered together with each other but it will be utter aloneness. And wouldn't annihilation be preferable to eternal suffering? And then, four months after coming out of my coma, I received a picture in the mail.
I also had visions of Jesus and Mary and The Big Bang Theory, and Egyptian scrolls that contain the secrets of life. This is the same Being in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. Talk about how to make yourself popular. Then he died… Before going to heaven, Ian first went to a place of darkness and terror. This view is paralleled in other ancient Near Eastern cultures, which also regarded heaven and earth as vulnerable and subject to dissolution. It was, however, not ordinary earth, for all around me I sensed, and sometimes heard and saw, other entities.
~Kathy Arshad, you are not alone in your worries and fears, even now, late into morning hours with days after days of no sleep or comforting thoughts, i suffer through a life of worrying about the cessation of not just my own, by all consiousness. Eventually your body will die, but your soul or spirit will live on. Good for you for taking the time to think it all through and realize that even if we believe there is something that comes next we probably will never have proof of it. But it has the full support of Scripture and, specially, of Our Lord's own words; it has always been held by Christendom; and it has the support of reason.

These people can practice the Brahma virtue at all times, and they are among those in the Heaven of the Ministers of Brahma. Now he is sharing his amazing testimony about heaven with the world, through his international ministry. But it doesn't go far enough for many people, including me. Imagine a perfect life in heaven without any limitations is beyond comprehension. The concept of moksha is unique to Hinduism and is unparalleled. I love going to observatories and to mountain trailing.
The more I read the more I think we cant know indefinitely. And what is dark matter and dark energy? On earth, if a person leads a righteous life and submits to the will of God, his or her tastes become attuned to enjoying spiritual pleasures as opposed to carnal desires. The moment I realised this, something crystallised inside me. Unfortunately science cannot shed any light on these experiences. Jesus has come to pay the price for our lives! It is a place of eternal torment. And good for you for being young but wise enough to realize that this type of conversation is universal to all of us, no matter where we live.
Can you guess the colour of the toy car that kept moving? ~Kathy Found your site from fifty2ninety and in turn found this very interesting conversation. . I initially believed in heaven out of fear. In other words, is our ultimate and eternal destiny heaven or hell? I recently sat with a good friend as she received yet another round of chemo for reoccurring cancer. Hi Russell, I appreciate you stopping by and adding to the conversation.
