  • you go to "Abraham's bosom" it isn't until the rapture that everyone goes to heaven. we know this from the story of the rich tax person and the poor guy, the poor guy went to Abraham's bosom, the rich guy went to hell

  • The rapture is a newly invented concept. The answer is simple the translation was messed up as with much of what is in the bible we read today. What's the scripture I may be able to find it?

  • Jesus is the only one who ascended into heaven with his body.

  • Through Jesus we are reconcilled to God. After Jesus ascended into heaven, he led the way. Before Jesus, those who died went to a place were there were comforted by Abraham, but it was still not heaven. The spirits of righteous men waited for Jesus' day, they saw it and were glad.

  • There are lots of scriptures that supports that people will stay on earth and not go to heaven. The belief that we die and go to heaven contradicts what the bible says. One good example in the bible is Lazarus in John 11 and 12. He died and Jesus resurrected him. Lazuras not once spoke of being in heaven. Which brings me to a point about the proof that Jesus will resurrect people according to Revelation and Act 24:15 Who will he resurrect if we are all in heaven already? KWIM?
    The bible also says that we rest after death. John 11:11-13
    God put humans on the earth not heaven. The angels are in heaven.
    The lords prayer....Matt 6:10 We should pray for a Kingdom on earthh.
    You can do some research on resurrection if you like. HTH!
