Pristine Grace

Going to Heaven Because Already There

Going to Heaven Because Already There

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: - Heb 9:24

     The only ones who are going to heaven are those already there. They are already there because they entered in their Representative Christ Jesus, when He entered heaven having finished the work that accomplished their salvation. He, as their High Priest with their names on His breastplate and shoulders, purged their sins and sat down on the right hand of the majesty on high,  Ephesians 2:5-6 tells us that God, “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” So, salvation must be all of grace and all in Christ if we entered before we were born! Thus, all that are going to heaven are already there!
