Not All Dogs Go To Heaven

John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

In 1989, Walt Disney produced an animated movie titled, “All Dogs Go To Heaven.” This no doubt misled many children to think that everyone goes to Heaven, which is simply not true. 

There is a false idea of universal reconciliation, or universal  forgiveness, the very idea that everyone will be saved. Is that true, that no one is going to Hell? As we just read from Jesus Himself, except a man is born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God. You must be born from above to go to Heaven. So, no, all dogs do not go to Heaven. Not everyone goes to a better place when they die. In fact, the Bible warns that most people go to Hell.
Matthew 7:13-15, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
We also read in Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. Most people errantly think they are going to Heaven when they die, but Jesus said most people cannot enter into Heaven. The reason why is because they haven't been born again. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born again. That is what happened to these people...
Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Dear reader, everyone doesn't go to a better place when this earthly life is over...
Revelation 20:12-15, “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
If you believe the Holy Bible, that it is the inspired Word of God, then you must agree that some people go to Hell to be punished for their sins forever. Psalms 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” I once had Mormon boss who wrote this Scripture passage down on a piece of paper. He also wrote down the word “Sheol.” He kindly said that if I look up the Hebrew word I will find that it means Sheol, not a place of suffering. Well, Sheol simply means the realm of the dead. But that doesn't limit the word to just the grave. Sheol was a mystery, since no one knows what is beyond death.

“Sheol” refers to the afterlife, good and bad alike. It is clear from Psalms 9:17 that the wicked do NOT go to the same place in the afterlife as the righteous, otherwise this Scripture would make no sense. I mean, if the righteous and the wicked go to the same place, then this warning is pointless. If we all die and are dead, and that's it, then so what if the wicked and the nations that forget God go to the same place as the righteous. What penalty or warning would there be for the wicked? Psalms 9:17 would make no sense at all, if Sheol merely means to be physically dead. Clearly, the Bible is warning us that the wicked do not go to the same place as the righteous (that is, the saved).

It is tragic that 95% of people form their conclusions based upon what they have heard from some corrupt preacher, or an idea contrived from their own flawed human reasoning, instead of studying the Holy Bible. Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Clearly, God destroys some people's soul and body in Hell. As we just read in Revelation 20:15, whosoever's name is not written in the Lamb's Book of Life will be cast by the angels into the everlasting Lake of Fire.

Dear friend, I have plainly shown you from the Holy Bible that no everyone goes to Heaven. The Bible has more to say about Hell than it does Heaven. Jude 1:7, “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” God rained down fire and brimstone to utterly destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, as an example of what He is going to do to the wicked.

And please don't overlook the words, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” In Hell God takes out His vengeance upon the wicked. There is no mercy or grace in Hell. Don't forget that friend. If you are reading this blog, God's grace is still available to you, just for the free taking.
2nd Thessalonians 1:8-10, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.”
So, here we learn upon whom God will pour out His eternal vengeance in flaming fire—upon all those who refuse to BELIEVE the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Dear reader, God is not playing games with you. This thing about receiving Jesus Christ as your personal Savior is no trifle or optional matter, it is literally a matter of eternal life or death for you! John 1:12-13, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” God your Maker is freely offering you a gift of eternal life, if you will simply BELIEVE (trust, put confidence) in Jesus, receiving His sacrifice on the cross as full payment for your sins, believing that He raised up from the dead on the third day. This is “the gospel” according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4,by which all who BELIEVE IT are saved immediately, irrevocably and permanently (Romans 1:34).

The hottest temperature ever recorded in California was recorded in Death Valley on July 10, 1913. I don't believe all this nonsense today in the media about Global Warming or Climate Change. It's just another clever way for the Luciferian ruling elite to control and oppress the masses. The world fluctuations in annual temperature is normal for God's creation (e.g., El Nino and El Nina). Records were made to be broken! It is nothing new that weather records are continually being broken. And may I say, even with the extraordinarily hot summer in 2023 across the United States, the old highest temperature record in California was not broken!

From my research, it appears that most people don't think everyone goes to Heaven. We see the evil committed by monsters in this world, which by very nature implies that crime must be dealt with and punished. The Bible teaches that nobody ever gets away with doing evil. Man's every work will be brought into judgment, whether it be good or evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
