It is written, '...here [in heaven] are they that keep the Commandments of GOD, and the faith of JESUS ." Revelation 14: 12c with the words in brackets summarizing the verses before that verse.
"And I saw another Angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto
them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue and people, saying
with a loud voice, 'fear GOD and give glory to HIM". Revelation 14: 6-7 a, King James Holy Bible.
I love the King James Holy Bible. I have other versions of the Bible but I love the King James language the best. All verses on this entry are from King James Holy Bible, [KJV].
Here is another Scripture you should know:
"for it is written, ' As I live, saith THE LORD, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to GOD. So then, everyone of us shall give account of himself to GOD." Romans 14: 11-12.
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.' Revelation of heaven, in Revelation 21: 1, KJV
There are a lot of people in the world who think that if they choose to deny GOD that there would be no consequences, but they are wrong. The consequences of denying GOD are standing before HOLY GOD on HIS Judgement Day and hearing HIM tell HIS Angels to cast you into the pit of hell, or as it is sometimes referred to, as eternal damnation, or sheol, or hades.
There will be no atheists at GOD's Judgement Day. IF you did not believe when you were on the earth, you will believe when you stand before HOLY GOD and hear HIS pronouncement of eternal damnation to your soul, and feel yourself cast into the pit. The time on the earth is the time to make peace with GOD and to acknowledge HIS Sovereignty over you and to ask HIM to save you from eternal damnation.
GOD sent HIS son and HIS name is JESUS to die in your place on the cross so that you might live eternally with HIM in heaven when you leave the physical earth. When JESUS was resurrected, HE overcame death, and HE said HE will raise up those believers to be iwth HIM in heaven.
If you don't know JESUS as your Saviour, Redeemer, I urge you to pray and seek HIS face, seek to know HIM, and if that means forsaking your earthly friends and earthly ambitions remember that heaven is the reward.
