ALL CREATURES

Do go to

HEAVEN

A book by B. J. Coombs

Dear Reader:

The original book has chapter 1 as a separate chapter in the center of the book. If you have not yet read it, please go back to chapter 1 and read it now, as it gives you part of the foundation on which this book is built.

Chapter 2

I dearly wish there was some easy way, to jump right into the proofs that the contents of the following pages are not only true, but are for everybody; but! As there is no easy way and the first few pages get tougher and tougher to read, you must keep in mind that something is being done here that has never been done before. We are examining proofs which will inexorably lead to the wonderful conclusion of this virtually unexplored and usually avoided or misinterpreted subject - A wonderful, and happy eternity for every creature that has ever been alive (albeit however fleetingly); especially those creatures and humans that have suffered so horrendously at the whims of others over the centuries.

The following book may seem to some readers to be utter heresy or even blasphemy, but it is in fact the complete opposite. It extols the absolute omnipotence/greatness of our God the Father, God the Son (our Lord Jesus) and God’s Holy Spirit, proving their love for all their creations which have suffered so terribly over the ages through the result of the rebellion and sin of Lucifer (Satan), with the consequent rebellion and sin of Adam and the rest of the Human race. Every statement/revelation is backed up by the pure scripture of the original languages, being without bias of any sort from different religions, sects or denominations.

Every human being that has ever lived, including the mentally and physically handicapped, stillborn and unborn babies - even aborted embryos and fetuses - will eventually all be happy in Heaven with perfect bodies and spirits (not necessarily souls); as also will all the animals, reptiles, fish, birds, insects and all other creations that were ever created, born, or even evolved according to God's great plan.

Grief, guilt, remorse and fear of death will disappear, if you can understand what is unfolded here – truths which have been locked up in diabolical mysticism, ambiguity, bigotry and ignorance for many centuries will be unveiled right before your eyes. But in case you cannot accept such amazing statements, let us examine the fundamental absolutes from which they come.

The fundamental absolutes we will examine are found in that book which consists to a large extent of prophecy which has been proved accurate - exactly on time over the last several thousand years – the "HOLY BIBLE"; (the very book usually used to try to ‘prove’ eternal torment for the Devil, His Demons, and much of the Human Race) and both Catholic, Protestant and Independent translations as well as the original Hebrew and Greek have been diligently compared to bring to you these wonderful truths (any major differences in the translations will be placed in brackets [] for your enlightenment).

Of course! Skeptics decry the Bible as being contradictory or consisting of myths and fables (but always because of the lack of unbiased study), and there are many seeming theological and secular differences regarding it’s interpretation – but these differences are not the fault of the original writings, but are the fault of those people who misunderstand or misinterpret (very often because of greed or ego) the contents of subsequent translations; and it is the misinterpretation of these translations that has caused untold misery, suffering (for both creatures and humans) and wars over many centuries, with even today countries divided against each other, and brother warring against brother.

As we progress, you will find the frequent incursions into the original languages the Bible was written in are not only interesting and easy to understand, but are also enlightening in their interpretations and explanations.

The first statement to be proved from the Bible is the one made four paragraphs ago about truth being locked up in "diabolical mysticism, ambiguity, bigotry and ignorance for many centuries.

Daniel 12:4 "But thou O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."

The book of Daniel contains some of the greatest prophecies in the whole of the Bible, yet he (Daniel) was told to "shut up the words and seal the book even to the time of the end".

The word end is translated from the Hebrew word קֵ ץ qets

meaning an extremity, utmost border, end; and here refers to the end of a particular period or age, not to the end of this planet.

run to and fro, is  יְ שׂ טְ ט וּshut

meaning going to and from (fast),

knowledge, is  הַ דַ עַ תּ daath

meaning to know, to find out, to be cunning.

As we are now (and only now) in these days of vast increase in travel and scientific knowledge – so then are we in the days of the unsealing and unlocking of these truths which have never before been fully understood (especially by present day religions and denominations who have the basis of their creeds or beliefs from way back before this ‘time of the end’ of this age as spoken of by Daniel the prophet).

NOW! Before the truths about all creatures being in Heaven can be amplified, we must first examine the fate of all humans; because humans were given the stewardship over all other creatures and are therefore responsible for their future – whilst we are all here on planet EARTH..

Dear Reader, please bear with me as I very briefly amplify the three phases of our physical essence for the sake of those who may not be completely sure.

HUMANS

A person – human being – Homo sapiens – is a thinking creature, as distinguished from other organisms; he/she is a living body that thinks, decides and acts, and consists of three main parts/influences:

It is VITALLY IMPORTANT to understand the differences between the Body, the Soul and the Spirit, so we will examine each one separately.

THE BODY

The body is our physical body – the flesh and blood (which most people abuse in some way or other and consequently suffer for it). It is made up mainly of water with other earthly substances present in varying quantities to hold the water together and give it form – when it dies it returns back to various forms of it’s original elements.

Genesis 3:19 "In the sweat of your brow you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, since out of it you were taken; for dust you are and unto dust you shall return." (St.J.N.C.E. or N.A.B.)

So this temporary body in which we now live is not the one we shall have in heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:35 "But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? And with what body will they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened except it die." (K.J.V.)

THE SOUL

The Hebrew word nephesh is translated 119 times in the OLD TESTAMENT as SOUL and 40 times as psuche in the NEW TESTAMENT. So here is a brief insight into how so many different interpretations (leading to so many conflicting doctrines) can be given to the same passage of scripture because of the difficulties of transliteration.

The original Hebrew and Greek languages had no punctuation as we understand it, (commas, full stops etc.), and a word of the original relied upon the context in which it was used to supply the meaning. So! Looking at the Hebrew word nephesh which is translated soul in many places, the closest we can get to it in our language is life or "animal soul". It is translated in other places as – appetite, beast, breath, body, creature, desire, heart, lust, mind, person, pleasure, self, thing, will, hearty, mortal, and other words according to the translators understanding of a particular phrase; but from the foregoing translations you can understand that the word nephesh means animal life (or physical flesh and blood life) into which word it is translated more times than any other except soul. Exactly the same thing applies to the NEW TESTAMENT word psuche which also means animal soul or life.

Genesis 2:7 "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and man became a living soul (or life)."

So! Your soul is your life. It is a record of every thought you have ever had, every action you have ever made and every word you have ever spoken. It is your life (and the record is kept in Heaven).

A person is not "A" soul – a person "Has" a soul.

The Spirit

The Spirit and the Soul are entirely different. Your Spirit is the very essence of You. It is that part of you that can receive the leading of God’s Holy Spirit, and allow you to give your spirit to domesticated (and even some wild) animals and other creatures who/which have their own hereditary traits and instincts of their species, but which we have stewardship over – whereas WE are each an entity in our own right.

We may have inherited some of the traits of our parents, but; unless these traits are physical, we can decide for ourselves which way we go. It is not our brain which does this deciding, but our spirit (some call it the psychē – Id – Inner consciousness or the mind or whatever) RUACH or PNEUMA which does not die with the body, but goes to a place of waiting to await the judgement of the soul.

Ecclesiastes 12:7 "Then shall the dust (physical body) return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return (to a designated place of waiting) unto God who gave it."

1 Corinthians 2:11 "What human being can understand the thoughts of a man except the man’s own inner spirit." (Moffat).

So! Your spirit sojourns in this temporary earthly body and uses it to produce your soul (life). Nowhere in the Bible does it say the spirit dies – quite the opposite and we will follow the spirit’s further travels later on.

Your spirit has two major functions. The first is to produce your soul via the activities of your brain controlling your body. In this function your spirit governs your emotions – the will to live, and such colloquialisms as "it’s all in the mind" or "mind over matter" etc., but this function only occurs in the physical realm – it is the only activity which the spirits of the majority of humanity ever experience. But! The second function of each person’s spirit is vastly more important than the first, even though it is not only the least understood, but also the least activated. But! Who knows? These words you are reading may activate the second function of your spirit, if it is dormant.

The second function of our Human spirit is to communicate with God’s Holy Spirit either directly or via Angels whereby we can receive His will and help. In most cases He only affects this if we desire and allow it. There are a few occasions in which He forces the actions, but not many. (Good examples of this are Jonah and Paul).

There is a scripture in the New Testament which critics single out as being not only ludicrous, but impossible.

Matthew 8:22 "But Jesus said unto him, Follow me now! And let the dead bury their dead."

The above verse reads in a later translation as follows:

But Jesus told him, "Follow me now! Let those who are spiritually dead care for their own dead." (the Living Bible).

The "spiritually dead" are those who are not in contact with their Creator. They may desire to be, or they may laugh uproariously at the very suggestion. Nevertheless, this is the second and most important function of the Human spirit.

John 4:24 "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."

Say, we want to know His specific role for us here in this life (or perhaps even the next life as well) as opposed to our own beliefs and understandings – but it does not seem to hit us like we feel it should – there are several reasons:-

The first is that we are not yet old enough and mature enough to have experienced enough testing of faith and patience here in this life to yet fulfill His purpose.

The second is laziness in study of the Bible for ourselves (it is so much easier to listen to others who profess to know).

The third is wanting the knowledge and power for the wrong reasons.

James 4:3 "You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions."

It is in this second realm or function of our human spirit that charlatans of many diverse ilks and religions deceive multiple millions into believing that either they (the charlatans) or us (the believers) have spiritual contact with the HOLY SPIRIT or Angels; whereas in reality the contact is usually with demons (or familiar spirits).

2 Corinthians 11:13-14 "These people are counterfeit apostles, they are dishonest workmen disguised as apostles of Christ. There is nothing unexpected about that; if Satan himself goes disguised as an angel of light, there is no need to be surprised when his servants, too, disguise themselves as the servants of righteousness." (Jerusalem Catholic Bible).

Matthew 24:23 ‘If anyone says to you then "Look, here is the Christ" or, "He is there", do not believe it; 24 for false Christs and false prophets will arise and produce great signs and portents, enough to deceive even the chosen, if that were possible. 25 There; I have forewarned you.’ (Jerusalem Catholic Bible).

1 Thesslonians 5:21 "Prove all things, hold fast that which is good."

If your Spirit’s secondary function is activated, you can still only determine if your intuitions and beliefs are genuine or false by studying the Scriptures the same way we are doing now.

Dear Reader. Chapter 3 follows on still getting a bit tougher reading – then Chapter 4 where the good parts start.
