How Do The Dead React When Heaven Is Different From Their Religious Expectations?


Susan Simmons asks: “Given that nearly all Christian Religions believe in one life with the hopes of entering Heaven, what are the reactions of the people when they cross over into the Realm, which is so different than what they were led to expect?”

Oh, my Holy Spirit! What a very insightful question. I can’t wait to see what Your answer is!

“Why not think about the way that all of the Religious Followers sincerely feel during their lives concerning their exclusivity? Every one of them, including the small tribal beliefs, feel that their own approach to God and the Heavenly Realms is the accurate way and all others are misguided fools. One of these perfect lessons of life is that they all learn the error of their ways practically the minute that they leave their earthly body and resume their celestial identity. ”

Yes, do go on…

“I Am just thinking about you and your seriousness. You don’t see why a religion would teach something so far from the truth. Why should We send these sincere Messengers to Earth, only to have Them form yet another exclusive club, which at its heart, teaches the same Truth that all the others have brought Down Here? They don’t seem to stick together very well, do they?

I know, it sounds silly to me, too. But, this is the effect that Earth has upon everything that enters this human realm. A general dumbing-down occurs….even within the brains of Our Own Consciousnesses, Who come to deliver these Truths to the people of the different ages in the Life of Mankind.

So, this questioner asks an excellent question about the particular reactions of a soul who sincerely followed their Religion’s Teachings, and then learned “at the Pearly Gates” that Heaven was not so exclusive, or so definitely-defined, as they had expected. Nor, were they, necessarily, who they had believed they were during the life just lived. They might have been a different personality and that might have been hidden from them.

There is usually a lot of understanding going on….or of catching up to do… and it depends upon how awakened their spirituality had become during that life. Don’t forget, that some of the most brainwashed of all the Religionists are not, at all spiritually-awake, and that is a bottom line requirement for the kind of instant understanding that is possible to experience upon entering the next Plane of Existence after death.

If they are close-minded at death, they will have to undergo some careful counseling before anything will make sense to them. This is one way that life on Earth can set a soul back in their development. In the one hand, it is very praiseworthy that they have recognized God’s Messenger, under whatever name That One has appeared. But, if they behave in an Earthly, possessive manner and use that Religion for adornment, rather than enlightenment; then, they have failed one of the hidden tests brought by that Messenger of God.

All of life contains such tests. Even the Teaching concerning the End of Life. What you are missing here is that:

These Teachings are about Life on Earth and your treatment towards your fellow man; not about your Death and your reward for choosing  correctly.Taken altogether, everyone has this same equation. Life is the thing! Not Death!

As long as you don’t fear either one, life or death; and especially, if you don’t fear the people sharing life with you!  All humans make their Heaven right where they live!”
