In   God’s   Holy   Books   He   states   that   the   only   reason   He   created   mankind   is   to   see   who   is   best   in   good   conduct.   No   matter   what   the   people who   don’t   believe   in   God   are   saying   the   only   thing   that   is   happening   or   has   ever   happened   on   earth   is   because   God   wants   to   see   who   is   best in   good   conduct.   Everything   else   that   people   believe   is   happening   is   either   a   lie   or   an   illusion.   It   is   not   just   enough   to   believe   in   God   to   be   a righteous   person   you   must   also   believe   in   the   promise   of   God.   God   promise   that   those   who   believe   in   Him   alone,   the   last   day   and   work righteousness   will   be   blessed   to   live   forever   in   a   beautiful   paradise   we   know   as   Heaven.   The   only   reason   why   someone   would   obey   God   in this life is because this person wants to be of those who will be blessed in the next life to live forever in Heaven. However,   I   don’t   believe   that   most   people   today   really   understand   what   it   is   that   God   is   promising   His   righteous   believers,   or   have   the correct   understanding   of   Heaven.   I   have   seen   many   movies,   heard   many   stories,   read   many   books,   but   I   have   not   seen,   heard   or   read   one   true story   told   about   Heaven.   All   that   I   have   seen   are   pictures   of   white   clouds   and   people   walking   around   in   all   white   wearing   bird’s   wings   on their   backs. This   is   not   the   Heaven   that   I   understand   is   promised   to   the   righteous   believers   by   God.   I   have   no   doubt   that   God   is   promising   His righteous   people   that   they   will   be   blessed   to   live   forever   in   a   real   physical   place   like   earth   that   will   be   a   paradise. Yes,   a   physical   place   where we   will   have   physical   bodies,   friends   and   mates.   A   paradise   where   the   righteous   will   be   living   in   beautiful   gardens   where   rivers   will   flow beneath   their   feet. A   paradise   where   everything   will   be   made   easy,   enjoyable,   and   where   happiness   will   be   with   everyone   forever.   I   believe   it is   very   important   that   a   person   have   the   correct   perspective   of   the   Heaven   that   is   promised   by   God   if   this   person   is   going   to   strive   to   do   good deeds   and   obey   God   in   this   life   to   go   there.   If   a   person   does   not   have   the   correct   perspective   of   Heaven,   why   should   this   person   want   to   go there?   I   don’t   believe   that   anybody   is   looking   forward   to   going   to   a   heaven   where   everyone   is   walking   around   as   spirits   with   no   physical bodies living in white clouds where they may or may not get their wings one day. Those   who   don’t   believe   in   God   may   ask   the   question   if   God   can   give   us   a   life   that   will   last   forever   after   we   die   why   He   didn’t   give   it   to   us now   in   this   life?   Think   about   it,   if   God   gave   us   everlasting   life   here   on   earth   before   the   free   choice   is   made   by   all   of   us   to   obey   God   or   not; then   look   at   how   long   the   righteous   people   would   end   up   living   with   those   who   made   the   choice   to   disobey   God   and   became   evil.   Living forever   with   those   who   are   evil   would   not   be   a   good   life   it   would   eventually   just   be   a   hell   like   life   is   becoming   today   on   earth.   The   true believer   in   God   has   no   problem   believing   that   God   can   raise   the   dead   and   will   give   them   a   life   that   will   last   forever   in   Heaven.   He   had   no problem   given   us   this   first   life. This   life   may   sometimes   seem   unfair   to   many,   but The   Day   of   Judgment   will   be   an   event   based   completely   on justice,   and   everyone   will   receive   just   what   he   or   she   has   earned.   However,   those   who   will   be   blessed   to   go   to   Heaven   will   receive   much more   than   they   have   earned   for   God   promises   to   bless   them   according   to   the   best   of   their   good   deeds   and   to   overlook   the   worst   of   their   bad deeds.   No   matter   what   you   have   done   wrong   in   your   life   for   which   you   may   think   that   God   will   not   forgive   you,   God   promise   to   forgive   you. However,   you   must   turn   to   God   in   true   repentance   by   obeying   His   laws   and   working   righteous   deeds.   If   you   do   this   before   it   is   too   late   God promises to forgive you of everything in your past and bless you to be of those who will live in everlasting happiness in Heaven.
