There is just but one way there and that is through the Son of God our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 25:31-46, Luke 23:43, John 14:6). He has been given all authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18-20), and there are no doctrines, commands, or rules (Matthew 15:3, Matthew 15:9, Colossians 2:20-23, Titus 1:13-14, 1 John 2:4) that have been created by man no matter how sincere or compassionate they might look or sound they will not bring you home to God our Father, the Son of God and the Holy Spirit in the new heavens and new earth (Isaiah 65:17, 2 Peter 3:10-13, Revelation 21:1-6).
There are many false beliefs and false teachings that are in these self-made religions that are called Christian denominational churches, or independent, or community or city churches, any mosques, any Jewish synagogues, any or Jewish temples, any Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism temples, any Zoroastrianism (whose temples are sometimes called Agiary), the Baha'i Faith (which are often simply referred to as Baha'i House of Worship), Taoism (which are sometimes called Daoguan), Shinto (which are sometimes called Jinja), Confucianism (which are sometimes called the Temple of Confucius), and ancient religions such as the Ancient Egyptian religion, or any Pagan places of their rituals, any palaces, any ministries, and individuals preaching that they can guide you to Paradise or Heaven, they cannot! The truth be told they are blind guides guiding you to condemnation in Hell to eternal torment and agony.
There is only one true church (the body) of the Lord Christ Jesus (John 14:6, Romans 16:16, Colossians 1:17-20) and that church is made up of the faithful baptized believers that seek the eternal kingdom of God and Christ (Acts 8:12, Acts 28:31, Ephesians 5:5, Colossians 1:13-15, 2 Timothy 4:1, 2 Peter 1:3-11, Revelation 11:15, Revelation 12:10).
These are just but some of the scriptural references from God's Son our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:24-27, Matthew 16:18, Matthew 11:28-30, Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-16, John 15:1-12, Hebrews 1:1-14) and the Lord's Apostles (Acts 1:1-8, Acts 2:42, Romans 1:1-6), the Hebrews writer (Hebrews 3:12-14, Hebrews 10:19-25 NASB), and the Lord's brothers James and Jude (Matthew 13:55 NASB 1 Corinthians 9:5, James 1:1, Jude 1:1) has been given us along with His Apostles and His brothers James and Jude His words, teachings, and commandments for us to obey and follow (Matthew 7:24-27, Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 4:10-25, John 14:15-24, Acts 2:41-42, Romans 12:3-21, Romans 13:1-14, Philippians 2:1-11, Titus 3:1, James 1:1-10, 1 Peter 1:13-20, 1 Peter 2:13-15, 2 Peter 3:1-14, 1 John 1:1-10, Jude 1:1-25 NASB) for our salvation.
God our Father through His Son and the Holy Spirit have given us their word of truth in the written inspired word of God (John 8:31-32, John 1:14-17, John 14:6, John 17:17, 2 Corinthians 5:1, 2 Corinthians 12:3-4, Ephesians 1:13, 2 Timothy 3:16 NASB, 1 John 5:20) for us to be able to go to paradise and then unto heaven (Revelation 2:7 ASV).
These are just but some of the scriptural verses and passages that references are written so we can understand what Paradise and Heaven mean and how to get there (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 3:2, Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 5:3-16, Matthew 6:19-24, Luke 23:39-43, John 3:3-7, John 3:10-21, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, 2 Corinthians 4:13-18, 2 Corinthians 5:1, 2 Corinthians 5:6-11, Ephesians 4:1-7, Hebrews 10:35-39, Hebrews 11:1-3, Hebrews 12:18-24, Revelation 2:7 ASV, 2 Peter 1:3-11, Revelation 2:10-11, Revelation 5:5-14).
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” 5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
These are just but some of scriptural verses and passages that our Lord has given us His word that if we follow His word, being humble, being faithful, loving, kind, compassionate, forgiving, and obedient as the children of God (Romans 5:1-11, Galatians 5:16-6:10, Ephesians 4:17-5:21, James 1:2:12, 2 Peter 3:10-18) we will live eternally with God our Father, Our Lord Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit and all the blessed in the new heavens and new earth (Isaiah 65:17-18, Hebrews 12:18-24, Revelation 21:1-8).
