Creed says there will be golden streets.
Hey jesus! So tell us all about heaven!
Heaven , where could it be ?, between the earth and space ? between the earth and the moon ? between the earth and any of the planets ? between the earth and the edge of the Solar System ?
And have now even gone beyond our Solar System and never encountered heaven.
Spacecraft have been sent to the outer reaches of the Solar System and they have not encountered Heaven , God , or any of his Angels
And for that matter they haven`t encountered a GOD or Angels either that have said to them you do not belong here.
Psalm 115 :16 As regards the heavens to Jehovah the heavens belong
But the earth he has given to the sons of men.
Their have been six earth -moon missions that have resulted in not just two men walking on the moon but a total of twelve men who have actually walked on the moon .
So where is heaven ?
This is a relevant topic for me. I was born in Heaven and sent down to earth to do my Father’s will. I also need to pick up my renewed script for medication by 5 pm tomorrow.
"If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?"
~ John 3:12
"The city . . . . wall is built of jasper, while the city is pure gold, clear as glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city are adorned with every jewel; the first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates are twelve pearls, each of the gates is a single pearl, and the street of the city is pure gold, transparent as glass."
~ Revelation 21:16-21
It's funny, we think of the apostles and Jews as almost being ancient Jehovah’s Witnesses. In reality to know what Jews even thought of Heaven, you have to forget what the Reasoning Book tells you and seek out what their beliefs were at the time of Jesus to appreciate why they weren't discussing 'Heaven' like a modern day JW.
And Jesus was forgetful.
recall when he said in Matthew that “this generation will not pass away until all these things take place”
He neglected to say " this overlapping generation". How thoughtless
