Heaven rejoices when a soul is saved

Who is in heaven today

Who is in heaven and who will be in heaven?

I am seriously asking this question.
We were born on earth. Where did we come from
A new living being came into being and not an incarnation.
God gives life. He gives life energy to people and animals, they breathe and grow and grow older and die.
Plants also grow from seeds, live and die.

Nehemiah 9:
6 You are the Lord, you alone! You made heaven, all the heavens, the heavens and all their host, the earth and everything that is on it, the seas and everything that is in them. You keep everything alive and the host of heaven adores you.

The host of heaven - aren't they the innumerable angels?
Or are they dead people?

When a person dies, where is he then? His body is buried and perishes. Or the body is burned and turned to ashes.

Where does the teaching come from that the dead are in heaven and look down on us, watch us?
I learned that way before.
No distinction is made between believers and ungodly, born again or those who are distant from God.
Everyone thinks that if you weren't a murderer, but in human opinion a good person, you will go to heaven.

I can remember a conversation with a neighbor. I told him about the love of God and that anyone who repents and repents sincerely and turns to God will be saved.
Oh, that made the man really angry. He considered himself good for his good deeds, and he didn't want to have to be in heaven with ex-criminals and serial killers.

As far as I understand there are 3 heavens.
The lower 1st heaven with wind and clouds and the forces of darkness, the demons.
Above it the second sky with the sun, moon and stars in the firmament.
Above the firmament, the sea of ​​glass, inaccessible to us humans, is the 3rd heaven with the throne of God = Yehovah. He is above everything and He is in charge. He sees and knows everything. Everything belongs to him.
Next to Him sits Yeshua, the Son of God, and watches the goings on on earth. He is waiting for His Bridal Congregation to be prepared and wants to come back soon to have it.

What will happen to the people who die before Yeshua's return?
Paul describes the raising from the dead, the resurrection.
The dead lie in the graves until they are raised.
The dead in Yeshua the Messiah, those who believed in Him and lived and died for Him, will be raised and changed at His return.
Only those who really belong to Him.
Not those who believed the antichrist and false messiah.

1 Corinthians 15:
42 So it is with the resurrection of the dead: It is sown in corruption and raised in incorruptibility;
43 It is sown in dishonor, and it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness and is raised in power;
44 It is sown a natural body, and it is raised up a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body.

1 Thessalonians 4:
13 But, brothers, I will not leave you in ignorance of those who have fallen asleep, lest you be sad like others who have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, God will also lead those who have fallen asleep with him through Jesus.
15 For this is what we say to you in a word of the Lord: We who are alive and will remain until the Lord comes again will not precede those who have fallen asleep;
16 for the Lord himself will come down from heaven when the command is given and the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God resound, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 After that, we who are alive and remain will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will be with the Lord always.
18 So console one another with these words.

So, the dead have been raised, those are those who were in the graves, and we, if we are still alive and ready, will be brought up to Yeshua in the clouds.
This is the first heaven.
Then where do we go with Yeshua in our resurrection body?
What happens next?

As for the initial question: Who is in heaven today?
God the Father and the Son and the heavenly hosts.
A mortal person cannot endure the presence of God.
What about Abraham and Moses?
What about the martyrs? Where are they?
Will not all be changed and resurrected together?
Yeshua is the firstfruits from the dead. He preceded us.

1 Corinthians 15:
20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead; he has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
21 For because death came through man, so also comes the resurrection of the dead through man;
22 for as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.


Will we not rule with Yeshua as His body?
Will He rule the earth in the 1000 year kingdom of peace when Satan is bound?
What happens to those who are not part of Yeshua's bridal congregation?

Here is wonderful sunshine with almost 30 ° C on my veranda.
Spring begins, the plants are growing. There is much to do.
We didn't have a real winter, just a few frosty nights. It didn't harm the oranges - only the mango and banana trees suffered.

Rigid winter and sudden reawakening are good examples of the resurrection.
Dying is sad for those who are left behind.
And yet always a reminder that we too are mortal.

While I was gardening outside, the following Bible passage came through my head. She is often quoted by those who believe in ecumenism and diverse religions. The main thing is that we believe in any god? Of life and nature?
No, we need true faith. Yeshua alone is the way to life, our high priest and shepherd.
He says to His disciples in

John 14:
1 Do not frighten your heart! Believe in God and believe in me!
2 There are many dwellings in my father's house; if not, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to me, so that you too can be where I am.
4 You know where I am going, and you know the way.
5 Thomas said to him, Lord, we do not know where you are going, and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus said to him: I am the way and the truth and the life; nobody comes to the father but only through me!
7 If you had known me, you would also have known my Father; and from now on you recognize him and have seen him.

So where is Yeshua preparing a place for us and where will He bring us when He comes again?
Where is his father's house?
Shall we not be living stones in the temple of God?

There, where JESUS ​​will lead us / his children / the bride, will probably only be HE, the FATHER and the serving angels.

Whether the raptured people ... Enoch and Elijah are already 'allowed to be there' eludes my knowledge.

All 'others' are probably going the 'normal way' via the biblical resurrection ... I think.

Of all 'earthly imagined persons' who are supposed to be in HEAVEN already, ick jar nüscht .... all just my knowledge.
Walter Nigg, who studied philosophy and evangelical theology at the universities of Göttingen, Leipzig and Zurich, has answers to your questions in one of his books: "The saints come again"
if you allow, I will visit you in your heaven!
Enoch and Elijah in heaven
These are the two in the OT that GOD raptured to him in heaven.

According to the Bible, this answer is actually a good explanation:
According to the Bible, Enoch and Elijah are the only people God took to heaven without having to die. Genesis 5:24 tells us, “And Enoch walked with God, and was no longer seen, for God had raptured him.” 2 Kings 2:11 tells us, “And as they were walking together and talking, behold, a fiery one came Chariots with fiery horses, they separated the two from one another. And Elijah went up to heaven in the storm. Enoch is described as a man who “walked with God” for 300 years (Genesis 5:23). Elijah was perhaps the most powerful of God's prophets in the Old Testament. There are also prophecies of Elijah's return (Malachi 4: 5-6).

Why did God bring Enoch and Elijah? The Bible does not give us an exact answer to this. Some speculate that they were brought in to prepare for their roles in the end times, possibly as the two witnesses in Revelation chapters 11: 3-12. That would be possible, but it is not explicitly taught in the Bible. It may be that because of their great loyalty and obedience to God, God wanted to save Enoch and Elijah from experiencing death. Whatever the reason, God has his mind behind it, and although we may not always understand God's plans and mind, we know that “God's ways are perfect” (Psalm 18:31).

The dead lie in the graves until they are raised.

Which graves are meant by this?
A person who is woken up sleeps first.

Which graves? At Yeshua's crucifixion, the dead came out of the graves, they came to life.

Matthew 27:
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth trembled, and the rocks were divided.
52 And the tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised
53 and came out of the tombs after his resurrection and came into the holy city and appeared to many.
Hello dear @freueteuch
So my understanding is that the followers of Jesus Christ will not die. You will go home. Their bodies are in the graves until the time the Lord comes and takes them out of the graves. But what is called soul and also consciousness is and remains with the Lord. They went over and the Lord Jesus will wipe every tear away. These and also "we", who we may experience the second coming of the Lord during the iridic lifetime, will reign in the 1000 year kingdom together with Jesus. He lives with us in person (oooh, I'm looking forward to it !!!). It will be the kingdom of peace. Satan and his demons will be bound. Even so, there will still be sin and sinners. Because the people who are converted in the tribulation will lead an earthly life, get married, have children and these children will have to decide whether they want to be followers of Jesus or not. And at the end of those 1000 years, everyone else will also be raised for the last judgment. Then comes the lake of fire and the second death for the wicked.
Many greetings and God's blessing to you with your great weather

Jesus spoke of paradise or of Abraham's bosom
@Astridcog, you mean the thief is alive. With or without a body?

“For our citizenship is in the heavens, from whence we also expect the Lord Yeshua the Messiah as Savior, who will transform our body of humility and make it conform to his body of glory, according to the effective power with which he is able, including all To submit to "
(Philippians 3:20, 21).
