Data Point One — Near death experiences where someone died and somehow came back to life, provide testimonial proof that Heaven and hell are real, and the God of the Bible is real, and that Jesus truly is the Son of God. Thousands of people across all cultures and religions, including Muslims and Hindis, have had near death experiences, and they report having met Jesus, and by and large they turn to becoming Christians if they weren't already. The rest of the world doesn't tend to hear about it because they don't follow or don't encounter such topics. Jesus spoke in John 8:32, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Absorb this, contemplate it, and adjust course!

The Truth About How God Created Earth

Earth isn’t just an accident among an infinitely vast universe populated by other civilizations. It’s was created by God for us, and we are created for God’s purpose. Earth is where the battle of Good and evil is fought.

Data Point One shows us that near death experiences where someone died and somehow came back to life, provide testimonial proof that Heaven and hell are real, and that the God of the Bible is real. Let’s now build upon that.

Genesis 1:1: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth. This history was told by God to Moses when God visited Moses on Mount Sinai in Israel, where it was recorded in the Hebrew language. Here is where we translate into other languages such as English, and here I have to parse this first sentence to expand on the story as sprinkled throughout the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible, and also expanded upon by messages given to prophets and priests.

In the beginning, God created Heaven and populated it with individually created angels of various designs, fashioned for different needs.

God gave these beings, created in His image, free will, which is an aspect of His immeasurable love.

When the angel Lucifer developed pride, he sinned against God and Lucifer gathered 1/3 of the angels to rebel and follow him against God.

IntellectuallyHonest.com will feature translations from English into other languages, made possible by various translation services such as Google Translate and DeepL.com. (Language translation may be understood to be imperfect.)

Next, we dive into the book of the Apocalypse and go to Revelation 1:20Stars represent angels. Subsequently, in Revelation 12:4 – the dragon representing Satan gathers 1/3 of the stars of the sky and flings them to Earth.

God searched for a place for those who could exist without his rule, and no place could be found.

Next, maybe not directly next, God created hell for the rebellious angels to spend eternity.

Reference this interview with Pastor John Fenn on YouTube recounting a conversation he had with his own guardian angel: https://youtu.be/w9AR1Wt3ASc?t=4028 ⬅Watch to 1:11:30 or 1:15:43.

As Pastor John tells it, he was told “Imagine a time when only [God’s] goodness, His light, His life filled the universe. There wasn’t anything else.” … “So your father tried to find a place for him but no place could be found, because Lucifer rejected everything that is God.” And so he said, “Your father was gracious enough to give him a place – to prepare a place for him to give him what he wants and not only him, but for all others who reject the things of your father.” And he said, “That’s why it’s called a kingdom of darkness because he is King over his Realm of Darkness that rejected everything that belongs to your father. So from our perspective your father has been gracious and very kind to allow that and to prepare a place for him and his angels and for all who reject Him.” Pastor John recounts, that ‘just blew my mind. I had never seen their perspective before.’

Reference the final judgment depicted in Matthew 25:41 – Those who in their life on Earth chose darkness instead of light and who rejected God’s ways of goodness are sent “into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels.” This is Jesus revealing key truths about reality.

As Pastor Laurie Ditto put it, ‘hell is where God puts things he wants to forget.’

The angels fought, and Michael the Archangel, ejected Lucifer from Heaven – Reference: Revelation 12:7.

Now jumping back to Genesis 1:1, God created the Earth and all that we can see and refer to as Creation. The greater light by day (the Sun) and lesser by night (the Moon), and stars amongst the darkness. Being all powerful, He created all by thinking it into existence.

On the fifth day He created life in the seas and the skies.

On the sixth day He created the animals of the earth, including what we refer to as dinosaurs, and Adam and Eve, made again in his image.

Now here’s the key: As one third of the angels rebelled from having been fashioned in perfection…

…God is replacing those fallen angels with Humans who out of imperfection chose to seek His true Good.

Corruption having descended from a state of perfection – replaced by those with a knowledge of Good and evil – out of a fallen realm – to a state of perfection. Some are saints, some are more saintly than others, and then we have the realm of Purgatory to allow purification to be obtained in some circumstances. All you have to do is pray about Purgatory to learn that it is in fact real.

No impure thing will enter into Heaven. Revelation 21:27

This stresses the importance of eliminating worldly aspects, various corruptions, phrases that are incorrect, eliminating disrespect insofar as one can, and developing an angelic, pious disposition.

Don’t let disrespect or disrespectful humor become a vice of yours.

Earth was created by God, as well as the blackness of space, which can still have intriguing beauty within. Consider that the black is a stark contrast from the divine brightness of Heaven’s kingdom – an opposite, when you think about it. The spectrum of dark had not existed before. Earth and this realm, which by my opinion I reckon is the third dimension, was created as a lower dimension for the battle of Good and evil. It’s sometimes referred to as a fallen realm with how life is imperfect, people are all prone to sin, and Creation here is beneath Heaven. The legend is that after Adam and Eve’s sin in the Garden of Eden, after they were banished from Eden, the devil was given authority over the planet. And then with the arrival of Jesus Christ, He took the authority back. Despite the existence of evil, the last 2000 years have been considerably more good, and more could be said on this topic perhaps another time.

Jesus told us, Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.

You have to consider this and work on figuring it out. God loves us, and we are here to love Him back!

Now does God love atheists and agnostics? Yes, all humans are sinners, and God loves us all. I’ll touch on that some more in a future article. Though we need to commit to the path of avoiding sin.
