  1. I love the video, I have a few remarks however

    In the ending it showed earth and heaven colliding as if everyone is going to heaven. You didn’t explicitly mention hell.. it can be misleading to some people. One last thing, I’m sure the material is biblically correct but it would help if you are able to quote scripture

    • A.M. Studios Well I feel it is merely now enough to those things of which you say cause there are things that feel like its not complete? I mean there are so many different doctrines out there and church’s, that’s confusing enough. Which one is really true?

    • Djew V check the bible it tells you basic criteria you must find in a church that is true to the gospel. everything im gonna say its from different parts of the bible you google it later: “judge the tree by its fruit” what does the preacher preach? does he preach repentance? do they expell demons from people? are people being healed from their illnesses, addictions, are blind ppl being given their vision? is the baptism in water and spirit being preached? “those who are not born from water and spirit do not see the kingdom of heaven”. basically everything Jesus did and told his followers to do must b happening at a church. because nothing changed, Jesus is alive. and he said “the one who believes me will do the same things i do and greater because im going back to the Father”. you can see all that happen at the church i go to its called universal church of the kingdom of God. check it out. its awesome 😀

    • Ron Borneo I appreciate your observation; there certainly will be a place prepared for those who reject the Gospel. In defense of the Bible Project, the subject matter regarded heaven and earth. For this reason, it seems, the makers chose to disregard the subject of Hell altogether. Since we can educate people one subject/topic at a time, and oftentimes not cover antithetical subject matter, the video seems to have sought to enlighten us on the matter of Heaven and Earth, rather than Heaven and Hell.

      Where we go “when we die” is an obvious reference to a question that could be posed by a believer. I would like to see these guys discuss the topic of Hell, and in time they might! Let’s keep praying for them and supporting them to that end to the glory of God.

  2. This is such a good explanation of God’s space and our space. I’d just like to add that biblically, we don’t enter God’s space when we die but we rest peacefully in the earth (like sleeping) until the new heaven and new earth are finally reunited.
    Daniel 12:2-3 (KJV) And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
    And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

    • lmjoelle12 we have to weigh our experiences against that sure Word of God. I don’t think he was lying really. He definitely experienced something but it wasn’t heaven. The Bible is clear about what happens when we die- We rest in the grave awaiting the resurrection. let’s also keep in mind that there are two spiritual forces at work. Even the devil can make us see things and experience things that help perpetuate lies about God and His character

  3. I thought once you died you are asleep. You do not go to heaven. Not until the Son returns, and only HE can take us all back with Him in the Resurrection, not as spirits, but with new Glorified bodies, such as that of Christ.

  4. Isin’t paradise referred to as,”Garden of Eden”? I thought that Jesus would rather say,”today you will be with me in my Fathers house”. As He usually states in specification.

  5. 10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

    11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; *and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats*
    12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

    13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

    14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

    15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

    16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

    17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

    • Have you not read, ‘Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”?’ If you are here to stir the pot, you’re not being very unique. If you’re a Christian, why are you looking for an end, for yourself, and not seeing that it’s a wonderful thing to be given time to go out into the world and reach people with the beautiful Gospel?

    • Lilac Milkshake I see no reason to continue in this fall in state I can’t stand being in this body of sin ……every waking hour sining sining sining! I can’t stand it any more!!!!!

    • Oh, Kevin, I’m so glad to hear that you’re not a heckler. I know what you mean all too well, when you talk of the burden of sin and constant failings. Forgiving myself (letting go of wretchedness and unworthiness) can be more difficult than forgiving others. Yet, the conviction of sin is a blessing, because it shows we have the holy spirit convicting our hearts. *However* we must discern from the HS’s prompting and Satan’s accusing. He is the great accuser.

      “Cast your burden on the Lord….” You have been bearing it all, but you need to deliberately place one end on God’s shoulder. “…the government will be upon His shoulder” (Isaiah 9:6). Commit to God whatever burden He has placed on you.

      Remember, Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

      How is your prayer life, Kevin? Praying for others and telling your heavenly father whenever you feel overwhelmed or need help to keep from sin is a great comfort. Ask that he keep you from your hours of temptations and remember that, the Holy Spirit is called the comforter, by Jesus. Trust in His promises and rest in him, so that you can experience the joy that is yours as an heir with Christ.

      Much love. Hugs.

    • Lilac Milkshake 16 years of making no impact. saving no one. getting no where. still drinking milk. always putting my foot in my mouth. no one wants to hear about the deep things of the Lord. family members watching sports watching the Kardashian. kids turning thief backs on me And the Lord. no ministry. can’t sing, cant play the guitar, can’t play the piano cant speak well. sin knew my talents. what’s the point of going on. god needs to save everyone he wants in heaven throw everyone he wants in hell and end this fiasco!

  6. My question is this…Is God’s word true or mans’ science ?  The bible says:
    Psalm 104 says, “He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.”Psalm 93 says,”Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.”
    1 Chronicles 16:30, “tremble before him, all the earth; yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.”

    this is true how are we rotating 360 degrees each day faster than the
    speed of sound as we orbit the sun at 66,600 mph, as we are shot through
    the galaxy at over 500,000 mph, while simultaneously our galaxy is
    going through the universe at 670,000mph? While tilting on our axis?
    the Bible says we are stable and fixed and the Earth is set on its
    foundation how can we be doing the opposite and moving in every possible

    • Douglas a foundation can also be an orbital foundation like the fixed railings of a train track, immovable foundations, the stars are also held together by his foundations everything is

  7. The Celestial Heaven Exists it is the third heaven which the apostle Paul spoke of in 2 Corinthians 12:1-4. Jesus said in John 18:36 ” my kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom where of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my Kingdom not from hence.

  8. good video except for the part where Adam gives God the finget, i didn’t know if i was seeing things or what. They should not have put that in there, as it is some kind of joke.

  9. I did a bible study with someone and we learned why God required animal sacrifices. it is because when Adam and eve sinned, they dressed themselves with leaves. God knew that wouldn’t work. so he had to kill an animal to cover their nakedness. in other words, an animal was sacrificed to cover their sin. the end 😀
