Fred, Mary, Hank and Sue won’t be going to Heaven

Name-Tag-FredIII am not suggesting that individuals who have those names won’t eventually become angels of God’s heavenly kingdom, it is just that they won’t be able to take their terrestrial birth names with them into this rarefied realm.

Here’s why:

First of all, when your physical body dies you enter into a non-physical realm where life continues—but it continues according to the quality of your heart and your belief system. What your parents named you on earth has no bearing in this non-material realm, and therefore doesn’t rise to heaven. Instead, you will be called according to the quality of your spirit’s actions and utility. One’s heavenly “name” becomes the ruling feature of an individual’s facial expression.

Furthermore, in heaven God becomes your parent.

And in the spiritual world, you will live in societies of utility that operate and function harmoniously like the various vital organs, tissues and organic systems of the human organism. Such unity from mutual love and support is the living design of heaven itself.

Angels do not know what physical things mean, only what they represent to their heavenly psyches and in relation to God’s divine character.

If you told an angel that you wanted to meet Moses in heaven, they would not know what you were talking about! But they could tell you what Moses spiritually represents within the Lord God’s sacred Word.
