Most professing Christians believe that the saved will go to heaven at death. But they have little or no idea about what they will do in heaven.
What does the Bible
teach is the reward of the saved?
The belief in "going to heaven" at death is not only held by most professing Christians. People all over the world, of many religions, hold to a belief in some kind of afterlife—some type of "reward" or blissful life after death.
Shocking as it may seem, neither Jesus nor any of his followers taught that the righteous go to heaven when they die! The "reward" Jesus promises His faithful followers are not heaven; it includes ruling with Christ on the earth.
20 "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me".
What door is this that Jesus is standing at and knocking on?
This is the door to your mind!
21 "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne". To he that overcomes the cares of this world, will he grant to sit with him in his throne.
