The Remnant Church of Jesus Christ
HEAVEN
We believe at the end of this world, all the redeemed will be going to heaven, where the Father is now. We will reign in heaven
for one thousand years and at the end of that time, we will return to this world along with, and in the new city Jerusalem,
(I PETER 1:3-4)  (3)  “BLESSED BE THE GOD AND FATHER OF OUR  LORD JESUS CHRIST,  WHICH ACCORDING
TO HIS ABUNDANT MERCY HATH BEGOTTEN US AGAIN UNTO A LIVELY HOPE BY THE RESURRECTION OF
JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD, (4)  TO AN INHERITANCE INCORRUPTIBLE, AND UNDEFILED, AND THAT
FADETH NOT AWAY, RESERVED IN HEAVEN FOR YOU, (MATTHEW 5:3)  “BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT:  
FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.”  
(Matt. 5:10,19-20).    (MATTHEW 7:21)  “NOT EVERY ONE THAT
SAITH UNTO ME, LORD, LORD, SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL
OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.”  
(REVELATION 20:4)  “AND I SAW THRONES, AND THEY (the redeemed)
SAT UPON THEM, AND JUDGMENT WAS GIVEN UNTO THEM:  AND I SAW THE SOULS OF THEM THAT WERE
BEHEADED FOR THE WITNESS OF JESUS, AND FOR THE WORD OF GOD, AND WHICH HAD NOT WORSHIPPED
THE BEAST, NEITHER HIS IMAGE, NEITHER HAD RECEIVED HIS MARK UPON THEIR FOREHEADS, OR IN THEIR
HANDS; AND THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS.”  
(Rev. 15:1-3; Matt. 23:13; Colo. 1:5;
Rev. 19:1,6).

We believe that we will be staying in the mansions in heaven that Jesus is preparing for us.   
 (JOHN 14:2-3)  (2)  “IN MY
FATHER’S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS:  IF IT WERE NOT SO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU.  I GO TO PREPARE A
PLACE FOR YOU.  (3)  AND IF I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU, I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU
UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO.”

There are  many  who  believe  that  no  human  being is in heaven now, and neither will anyone ever be going into heaven.  The
scripture that is used to support this erroneous belief is found in
(JOHN 3:13)    “AND  NO  MAN  HATH  ASCENDED  UP  
TO HEAVEN,  BUT  HE THAT CAME  DOWN  FROM  HEAVEN, EVEN THE SON OF MAN WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.”  In  
order  to  understand  the  true  meaning  of  this  text,  you  must  read  the preceding verse
(VERSE 12)  “IF I HAVE TOLD
YOU EARTHLY THINGS, AND YE BELIEVE NOT, HOW SHALL YE BELIEVE, IF I TELL YOU OF HEAVENLY
THINGS”?  

Jesus is not saying that there is no man in heaven.  What He is saying is no man has ever gone to heaven to learn of heavenly
things of the Father and then returned to this earth to teach them, (John 1:18; John 5:37; John 6:48; John 14:10; etc.).  Jesus Christ
is the only one who has ever accomplished this.  We know for certain of three men, by name, who are in heaven:
 ENOCH -
(Gen. 5:24 and Heb. 11:5);  ELIJAH - (II KINGS 2:11)  “AND IT CAME TO PASS, AS THEY STILL WENT ON, AND
TALKED, THAT, BEHOLD, THERE APPEARED A CHARIOT OF FIRE, AND HORSES OF FIRE, AND PARTED THEM
BOTH ASUNDER; AND ELIJAH WENT UP  BY A WHIRLWIND INTO HEAVEN.”  MOSES -
(Matt. 17:1-3); and the
TWENTY FOUR ELDERS -
(Rev. 4:4-5, 10-11 and Rev. 11:14-18).  How did these elders get into heaven?  The Bible
answers that question very clearly.  At the time of Jesus’ crucifixion, there was a “Special Resurrection”,
(MATTHEW
27:50,52-53)
 (50)  “JESUS, WHEN HE HAD CRIED AGAIN WITH A LOUD VOICE, YIELDED UP THE GHOST.  (52)
AND THE GRAVES WERE OPENED; AND MANY BODIES OF THE SAINTS WHICH SLEPT AROSE,  (53)  AND CAME
OUT OF THE GRAVES AFTER HIS RESURRECTION, AND WENT INTO THE HOLY CITY, AND APPEARED UNTO
MANY.”

These men of God who had died and resurrected were not killed and put back into their graves because it is appointed unto men
to die once and after that - the judgment,
(HEBREWS 9:27)   “AS IT IS APPOINTED UNTO MEN ONCE TO DIE, BUT
AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT:”

We believe that at the end of the thousand years, our heavenly Father will move to this earth, made new with all of the redeemed;
and the kingdom of heaven will be here on this earth,
 (REVELATION 21:1-3)  (1)  “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.  (2)  AND I JOHN SAW THE HOLY CITY, NEW JERUSALEM, COMING DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF
HEAVEN, PREPARED AS A BRIDE ADORNED FOR HER HUSBAND.  (3)  AND 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.”  
(MATTHEW 5:5)  
“BLESSED ARE THE MEEK:  FOR THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.”  
(Psalm 37:11, Rev.. 5:9-10).

We believe that in the kingdom of heaven we shall all be flesh and bone.
 (JOB 19:26) “AND THOUGH AFTER MY SKIN
WORMS DESTROY THIS BODY, YET IN MY FLESH SHALL I SEE GOD .”
(ISAIAH 66:22-23)  (22)  “FOR AS THE NEW
HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH, WHICH I WILL MAKE, SHALL REMAIN BEFORE ME, SAITH THE LORD, SO
SHALL YOUR SEED AND YOUR NAME REMAIN.  (23)  AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, THAT FROM ONE NEW
MOON (or month) TO ANOTHER, AND FROM ONE SABBATH TO ANOTHER, SHALL ALL FLESH COME TO WORSHIP
BEFORE ME, SAITH THE LORD.”  
(Luke 24:36-43).

We believe that God will answer us before we finish calling on Him,
(ISAIAH 65:24)  “AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS,
THAT BEFORE THEY CALL, I WILL ANSWER; AND WHILE THEY ARE YET SPEAKING, I WILL HEAR.”

We  believe  that  there  will  be a pure language in heaven, (ZEPHANIAH 3:9)  “FOR THEN WILL I TURN TO THE PEOPLE
A PURE LANGUAGE, THAT THEY MAY ALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD, TO SERVE HIM WITH ONE
CONSENT.”  
(Isa. 33:19).

We believe that there will be animals  in heaven,  (the new earth) without any danger to life, (ISAIAH 11:6-9)  (6) “THE WOLF
ALSO SHALL DWELL WITH THE LAMB, AND THE LEOPARD SHALL LIE DOWN WITH THE KID; AND THE CALF
AND THE YOUNG LION AND THE FATLING TOGETHER; AND A LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM.  (7) AND THE
COW AND THE BEAR SHALL FEED; THEIR YOUNG ONES SHALL LIE DOWN TOGETHER:  AND THE LION SHALL
EAT STRAW LIKE THE OX.  (8) AND THE SUCKLING CHILD SHALL PLAY ON THE HOLE OF THE ASP, AND THE
WEANED CHILD SHALL PUT HIS HAND ON THE COCKATRICE’ DEN.  (9) THEY SHALL NOT HURT NOR DESTROY
IN ALL MY HOLY MOUNTAIN:  FOR THE EARTH SHALL BE FULL OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD, AS THE
WATERS COVER THE SEA.”  
(ISAIAH 65:25) “THE WOLF AND THE LAMB SHALL FEED TOGETHER, AND THE
LION SHALL EAT STRAW LIKE THE BULLOCK:  AND DUST SHALL BE THE SERPENTS MEAT.  THEY SHALL NOT
HURT NOR DESTROY IN ALL MY HOLY MOUNTAIN, SAITH THE LORD.”

We believe that in  the kingdom of heaven,  (the new earth) God will supply us with all things, and there will be no more
affliction or sin, ever again.  
  (NAHUM 1:9)   “WHAT DO  YE  IMAGINE AGAINST THE LORD?  HE WILL MAKE AN
UTTER END:  AFFLICTION SHALL NOT RISE UP THE SECOND TIME.”

We believe our food and drink will be sure, (REVELATION 7:16-17)  (16) “THEY SHALL HUNGER NO MORE, NEITHER
THIRST ANY MORE; NEITHER SHALL THE SUN LIGHT ON THEM, NOR ANY HEAT.  (17) FOR THE LAMB (Jesus)
WHICH IS IN THE MIDST OF THE THRONE SHALL FEED THEM, AND SHALL LEAD THEM UNTO LIVING
FOUNTAINS OF WATERS:  AND GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS FROM THEIR EYES.”

We believe that there will be no more sickness,  pain,  tears,
or death,
 (REVELATION 21:4) “AND GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS FROM THEIR EYES; AND THERE SHALL
BE NO MORE DEATH, NEITHER SORROW, NOR CRYING, NEITHER SHALL THERE BE ANY MORE PAIN:  FOR THE
FORMER THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY.”
(Rev. 7:17; Isa. 33:24; Isa. 11:9).

We will build houses and live in them. We will plant gardens and eat the fruit of them,
 (ISAIAH 65:21-22)  (21) “AND THEY
SHALL BUILD HOUSES, AND INHABIT THEM; AND THEY SHALL PLANT VINEYARDS, AND EAT THE FRUIT OF
THEM.  (22) THEY SHALL NOT BUILD, AND ANOTHER INHABIT; THEY SHALL NOT PLANT, AND ANOTHER EAT:  
FOR AS THE DAYS OF A TREE ARE THE DAYS OF MY PEOPLE, AND MINE ELECT SHALL LONG ENJOY THE
WORK OF THEIR HANDS.”  
(Amos 9:14-15).

We  believe  that  all things  will  be new, and we will have access to the water of life.  We shall inherit all things.
 
(REVELATION 21:5-7)  (5) “AND HE THAT SAT UPON THE THRONE SAID, BEHOLD, I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW.  
AND HE SAID UNTO ME, WRITE:  FOR THESE WORDS ARE TRUE AND FAITHFUL.  (6) AND HE SAID UNTO ME, IT
IS DONE.  I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END.  I WILL GIVE UNTO HIM THAT IS ATHIRST
OF THE FOUNTAIN OF THE WATER OF LIFE FREELY.  (7) HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS;
AND I WILL BE HIS GOD, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON.”

We  believe  that  we  will  have the right to the tree of life.  (REVELATION 22:14) “BLESSED ARE THEY THAT DO HIS
COMMANDMENTS, THAT THEY MAY HAVE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE, AND MAY ENTER IN THROUGH THE
GATES INTO THE CITY.”  
(Rev. 22:1-5).
