Dealing With Misconceptions : Do We Receive Mansions In Heaven? Errmmm by KingEbukasBlog(m): 1:24pm On Feb 13, 2016
We Christians need to understand that God is not of this material/physical world but needs to reveal Himself , His plans for us in ways through which we can understand.

The night before Jesus was crucified, He told His disciples that He would be leaving them and that they could not go with Him (John 13:33). Peter asked where He was going and why they couldn’t go with Him, and Jesus assured them that they would follow Him eventually (John 13:36-37). Jesus said, "In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also" (John 14:2-3).

This saying of Jesus has confused many because of the King James Version’s rendering of the words “house” and “mansions.” The Greek word translated “house” means “an abode,” literally or figuratively, and, by implication, “a family.” The word translated “mansions” or “rooms” means literally “the act of staying or residing.” So, putting the Greek together, Jesus is saying that in God’s home (heaven) there will be many people in the family of God all abiding together. Within God's heavenly house, Christians will live in the presence of the Lord. This is quite different from the idea of rows of mansions on streets of gold, which is the image many people have of what Jesus was saying.

Jesus Christ prepares a place in heaven for His own, those who have come to Him in faith, and the Holy Spirit prepares the redeemed on earth for their place in heaven. Revelation 7:9 tells us that there will be a "great multitude in heaven that no one could number" all standing before the throne. Here, again, the imagery is of multitudes together, not living separately in different mansions.

http://www.gotquestions.org/mansions-heaven.htm

"What are the New Heavens and the New Earth?"

Answer: Many people have a misconception of what heaven is truly like. Revelation chapters 21-22 gives us a detailed picture of the new heavens and the new earth. After the events of the end times, the current heavens and earth will be done away with and replaced by the new heavens and new earth. The eternal dwelling place of believers will be the new earth. The new earth is the “heaven” on which we will spend eternity. It is the new earth where the New Jerusalem, the heavenly city, will be located. It is on the new earth that the pearly gates and streets of gold will be.

Heaven—the new earth—is a physical place where we will dwell with glorified physical bodies (1 Corinthians 15:35-58). The concept that heaven is “in the clouds” is unbiblical. The concept that we will be “spirits floating around in heaven” is also unbiblical. The heaven that believers will experience will be a new and perfect planet on which we will dwell. The new earth will be free from sin, evil, sickness, suffering, and death. It will likely be similar to our current earth, or perhaps even a re-creation of our current earth, but without the curse of sin.

now the KJV version of the bible is divinely inspired and I can emphatically tell you that it is the only version that reflects the hebrew and greek scrolls from which it was transliterated. so based on that I will use the KJV. in the KJV it says ' In my Father's house are many mansions ' . Now with the bible it is EXTREMELY important to go into the etymology of words because the bible was written when words dont necessarily mean what they mean today. the meaning of some words have transformed with time. so looking at the etymology of MANSION, in ancient greek and persian and latin ( two empires reigning when the bulk of the bible was written ), the word MANSION means ' TO REMAIN '. so basically when he says in my fathers house there are many mansions he is saying all those who are chosen into heaven will remain there and will never be kicked out again. to further back this up I will go into the book of revelation 3 vs 12

revelation 3 vs 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: <<<< SO IF YOU OVERCOME AND ARE CHOSEN, YOU WILL NO LONGER GO OUT, MEANING YOU WILL REMAIN, WHICH IS WHAT MANSION MEANS

HOWEVER IF YOUR CONCERN IS ABOUT THE RICHES THAT THOSE WHO MAKE IT WILL GET, YES THEY WILL RECEIVE THE RICHES OF THE WORLD, GOLD AND SILVER AND THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD WILL PAY TITHES ( ITS CALLED TRIBUTARY ) TO THOSE WHO MAKE IT. SO YES THERE WILL BE PHYSICAL RICHES ALSO ( AND I CAN PROVE THAT TOO WITH THE BIBLE ), HOWEVER THE VERSE ABOUT THE MANSION IS NOT REFERRING TO A PHYSICAL HOUSE. IT MEANS ONCE YOU MAKE IT - YOU REMAIN IN THE FOLD FOREVER

Ephesians 2:19-22
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.


All of us are the mansions of the father because together we are built on the foundation of Christ. Together as a building we are framed as the Holy Temple of the Most High God.

When God comes back, we all will be His habitation through the spirit, Jesus Christ will be the chief corner stone or chief carrier of His spirit

Think on these:

21
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared [/b]as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, [b]Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them,
and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Revelations 21:1-3

The New Jerusalem , The New Earth and The New Heaven . The New Jerusalem will be located in the New Earth and we will spend our eternity in the New Earth - streets of gold , mansions .

@ op, many christian may say this verse talk about christ second coming, if you read the whole conversation in John 14, you will understand what Jesus really mean. Verse 2 and 3 tell us were Jesus is going, but verse 6 tells us where He’s going and how we His followers will get there: He is going to the Father, and we come to the Father when we get saved through Jesus. How do we go to the father ? Do we come to the Father through Jesus only when He RETURN IN THE FUTURE , or have we come to Him ALREADY through faith? The entire context makes this point clear. We go to the father's house only when we became a followers of christ.

The father's house may be a temple and we are His new household, the reason I said this is because, the Greek word (dwelling place) use in verse 2 was use again in verse 23 and it carry the same meaning
Verse 23
“The one who loves Me will obey Me, and My Father will love that one and we will COME make our ‘dwelling-place’ WITH that person”

If you read the related verses which mention the word dwell, it always encourage us to abide in Him. Yes christ will return someday, but hope we all know that christ return after His ressurection to His disciples as promised.

So the point is that christ return after His ressurection and invite us to live a NEW life with Him which He brought through the ressurection, infact verse 18 and 19 says he will not leave us as orphan.

18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live

The OP is talking of God's abode - Where the Christians will go after Rapture . Off course , the New Jerusalem will come forth from Heaven- during the Second Coming of Christ . The Rapture and the Second Coming of Christ are two different events

Confusion galore. This is my problem with all religions, just yesterday I saw some muslims on TV debating about what God really meant by a verse in the Koran. In christianity the confusion is much worse. If the bible is the word of a God that truly wants people to know him, his intention and his message then why didn’t such a God cause the bible to be written in a language that can never be misinterpreted, or forged by any human being, a language that does not need any holy man to translate it for people, a language that even a child in any country can read it on his own and quickly comprehend it?

The multiplication table can’t be forged, or tampered with without someone quickly spotting the flaw, any child anywhere in the world can comprehend this table in a few hours, yet the same can’t be said about the bible/quran that is said to be God’s word for mankind on how to know him and interact with him. If man with his puny brain could devise such an accurate system as the multiplication table, that is beneficial to entire world and every human on earth can agree to this system, then surely the alleged supreme being that created the universe can do much better than these antiquated books of lies, contradictions, superstitions, and myth that we call the bible and quran. See christians here falling over themselves trying to explain to each other what ancient Jewish mythology is all about. Funny people.

It is very simple, if the bible is the word of an all powerful God that exist as the christians want us to believe, then the bible will be very clear and easy to understand like the multiplication table. Any body that reads it will understand it and it's message will be universally understood like the multiplication table. The fact that the bible is not clear and subject to various interpretations that are based purely on the opinions of the reader says it is the handiwork of men just like any other book.

Its normal for people to get things mixed up in every area of life . You have parents to guide you in life and explain to you intricate issues you might face or you faced . In school , you've got teachers and even your fellow students through whom you can learn from. In CHurch , you have your pastors and the brethren to guide you as read God's word and answer questions in areas you dont seem to understand .

This bible verse elucidates the first sentence you made

1 Corinthians 14:26

What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation Let all things be done for edification.

When you assemble , when you have a fellowship , a christian discussion like we are doing ... each has a psalm , a teaching , a revelation and a what ... interpretation . And the purpose ? For edification - the moral or intellectual instruction or improvement of someone.

Another non issue raised by you . You dont seem to give up even when you are publicly humiliated .

1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.

Again ... Dalaman we are building up one another ..please dont disturb
