OVERVIEW

“Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on ME through their word; that they all may be one; as THOU FATHER art in ME, and I in THEE, that they also may be one in US; that the world may believe that Thou hast sent ME.”—S. John xvii. 20, 21.

“THY KINGDOM come.”—S. Matt. vi. 10.

Heaven is for Real: What The Bible Teaches Us About God's Promise to Us All is the astonishing book that reveals what the Bible actually says about how we can all reach heaven and join God. Based on extensive research and meticulous scholarly readings of God's Word, Heaven is for Real: What The Bible Teaches Us About God's Promise to Us answers the fundamental questions of

“The Kingdom of Heaven”—What is it?
Who are the subjects of “The Kingdom of Heaven?”
And where is “The Kingdom of Heaven”?

This book reveals to us the astounding truth, as clearly stated in the Bible, that the Kingdom of Heaven IS real and can be reached by all Christians.


EXCERPT

"Who then would enter in? Who would become subjects of the Kingdom of Heaven?

The Lord Jesus declared at once, what modern missionary experience still finds to be the case, that little children were the most likely to become His subjects, and the fittest to enter into “The Kingdom of Heaven.” Some mothers once brought their little ones for His blessing; and when the disciples were hindering their coming, “He was much displeased and said unto them, Suffer little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not; for of such is the Kingdom of God” (S. Mark x. 14). And not only did He declare that little children were the most suitable to become His subjects; but He said also, that those who were grown up and wished to enter His Kingdom must become like children to do so. For He added, “Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein” (S. Mark x. 15). And on another occasion He expressed His thankfulness that only child-like hearts could take in the mysteries of the Kingdom, saying, “I thank Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes” (S. Luke x. 21).

When we read in such passages as these of the difficulty of entering into “The Kingdom of Heaven,” it becomes very important to remember that the Kingdom was not then set up; and that the words were spoken with respect to men who had grown up under other conditions and modes of thought. For whilst the words still apply literally and exactly to the case of converts from amongst the Heathen, they are not applicable at all, in the same sense, to persons who have long ago entered “The Kingdom of Heaven” as children, and have lived under its influence. Thus, for instance, when we read that “a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of Heaven” (S. Matt. xix. 23), there is no need to suppose that the rich, who have grown up as His subjects, have less hope of Heaven than others. The temptations which come with riches are great, but the grace of God will enable His subjects, whether rich or poor, to serve Him faithfully, if they seek for it. The words clearly referred to the difficulty which the rich Jew or the rich heathen would find in declaring himself a subject of Jesus Christ. It is easier for the poor and the unlearned to become a Christian, than for the rich and the learned. In after years S. Paul found this to be the case at Corinth. “Ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called” (1 Cor. i. 26)."

The Bible is the Word of God, and the Bible promises us heaven. We only need to read the Bible to understand what God has promised us and how heaven is within reach of all of us. This Book explains all of this in a very clear manner.

To PunkPuck and all the others- There is no NEW proof of Heaven. All the proof that will ever be given to us is in Gods Holy Bible. That is the only proof we will ever have, and that is all Gods people should ever want- his word, because his word is true and faithfull and it always will be. I have no place to ridicule your opinion, and neither does anyone else. What you think and believe is your descision. But something you MUST understand is that this book isn't giving us NEW reasons to believe in Heaven; it's opening the eyes of those who are willing to see it, to the truth, and unending loyalty and love of our one true God. This book is here to show us what he has already shown us. To read this and not be changed in some way, just goes to show how hardened some peoples hearts have become to Gods word. If this book wasnt worth it for you, you might want to think about where you stand now, and where you'll end up when He comes for us all again and we are judged. Further more- those of you who read this book and are fooling yourselves about your faith; i have nothing to say to you but 'you have to make a descision.' There is no 'in-between' when it comes to faith, and not everything is going to be easy. Good Luck from the very bottom of my heart with whatever path you take :)

Your name suits you well, you are quite the punk. If you didn't like the book then why did you take the time to read it? Thats what bothers me, i see all these bad reveiws on a book that could be the best book i have ever read in my life. But the thing is i wouldn't know now that i saw all these negative reveiws beacause i wouldn't take the time to read the book after all these people said bad things about this book. How about you take this challenge: try to find something positive to say about everything, for you this would be pretty difficult wouldn't it?

This book is an outstanding book. Iearned that god is for real. He is not fake. This boy has a very true story. His Dad is a paster and he could not understand his son when he spoke to him. Wow Ican not believe that this boy could remember all that. If that was me I would be freeked out. I really recommend this book for others to read. It will change your life believe me. People who do not believe in god they will! But people who allready believe in him will only learn more things about him. Please read this book. THANK YOU ,josh
