I REMEMBER…  ANT HEAVEN

Ant Heaven, near death experience, Marjoe, Paul, II Corinthians, Revelation, God loves you, Read your Bible,

One day while cooking I needed some sugar, so I grabbed the large Tupperware canister and pulled the top off.  And looking inside I saw several ants having a good ol’ time.  It seems the container had a crack in the lid, and the ants had found their way in.  My first thought was how they probably figured they entered into “ant heaven,” but that just wasn’t the case, because, they were about to get washed down the sink and into the sewer.  It kind of reminded me of some of the stories I’ve heard about people who have had a “near-death experience,” or supposedly died and saw a light at the end of a tunnel.  Probably in their case, however, the light at the end was the fires of hell, though, as most them were not believers.  And then there are folks who say they have actually taken a trip to heaven, like the lady who traveled from church to church, telling and selling books about of her celestial journey.  In her heaven, there were rolling green hills, and flowers that emitted music from their pedals, and the music could be seen dancing in the air.  I think lots of people back in the 60’s and 70’s saw those things with the aid of little pills.  Maybe they still do.  There is also the self-confessed fraud evangelist who was coached by his mother to tell such stories when on the road going from church to church, making a living for them as a child, and for himself independently as an adult.  Check it out on YouTube under “Marjoe.”  (That’s a combination of Mary and Joseph.)  Marjoe said he gave up his phony ministry because his conscience was getting the upper hand, and he even admitted he wasn’t a Christian.

Now about those ants, if you can image...  While on patrol one shouts to the others, “Hey fellow ant dudes, let’s try this Tupperware canister.” Another hesitates with the reminder, “Ah, let’s not, you know how tight those seals are.” But another observes, “Hello, what’s this?  The lids cracked.  Let’s go for it.”  And as they enter through the breach, one pronounces, “We’ve not only hit it big, boys, we’ve been translated to glory.  Wow!  Everything is white; it’s beautiful, and everywhere we look it’s entirely made of sugar.  We’re in ant heaven.  We’re in the sucrose stratosphere for eternity.  Yeah!” This would prove not be a long lived experience, however, because, in reality, their being in what they thought was ant heaven was their one-way ticket to ant hell.  

In scriptural  on this subject, the apostle Paul mentioned a man he knew that had the ultimate lofty experience in II Corinthians 12, and it says in part, “And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)  How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.”  

Please note: For one thing it is impossible for a person to describe in mere words the wonder of the eternal heaven, for it is “unspeakable” as in out-of-this-world.  Get it? And if one is not authorized to tell about his heavenly experience, as was the authorized apostle John and some of the Old Testament prophets, it is illegal to do so.   But God can and does give everyone the official glimpses of heaven in scripture, especially in the book of Revelation.  So if you want to know what the real spiel is on heaven’s deal, remember…

 God loves you.  Read your Bible.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
