Present Access to Heaven
Why “Go To Heaven Now?”
Well, this is my first blog post! I have spent so much time writing over the years, so it seemed like I should start a blog in order to share and organize what I’m thinking.
Why “Go to Heaven Now?” When I was reading the book of Hebrews several years ago, I realized it teaches that part of the message of the gospel is that we have present access to heaven. The book of Hebrews describes the Jewish temple and sacrificial system and then explains how all of these things were patterns of the “true realities” in the New Covenant. It teaches that the true Most Holy Place, which Jesus entered on our behalf, is heaven itself.
Hebrews 9:24 (NIV) For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence.
The next chapter continues:
Hebrews 10:19-22 (NIV) Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings…
When it says we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place, Hebrews isn’t speaking of the Jewish temple but of the same Most Holy Place that Jesus entered—heaven itself! When we approach God’s “throne of grace,” we enter heaven! We enter heaven through the body of Christ, which is the veil that was torn. We have present access to the peace, the joy, the love, and the goodness of God that permeate heaven.
Psalm 16:11 (NRSV) In your presence there is fullness of joy, at your right hand pleasures forevermore.
These truths have changed my life, and they permeate my thinking. I have experienced heaven. There’s nothing that I love to write about more than all that is available in the gospel. God’s promises seem to be too good to be true, but they are true! I have experienced them! Writing about the promises of scripture also forces me to think about them, which then helps me to live more in the fullness of all that is possible in Christ. These thoughts have blessed me so much, and it seems right to share them so that they can bless others! I would also love to hear the testimonies of other people and what they have experienced in the comments.
Present Access To Heaven
Since starting this blog, I’ve also started a Youtube channel and added a video sharing this truth from Hebrews 9 and 10.
You may also want to check out my Heaven Now book trilogy. If Jesus made the way for us to enter heaven now, I don’t want this truth to be only a theory to me! I want to live it and learn to walk as a heavenly person. The Heaven Now series shares the truths that have helped me to do so and testimonies of the miracles I’ve experiences along the way.

Jesus made a way for us to enter the holiest place. He made a way for us to enter heaven, now!
