We are in hell Pricilla. Every scripture about hell pertains to the outer court of Gentiles called the outer court of darkness. We are told that the temple shadows the kingdom of heaven and we are the temple. The design of the temple is there to show us the kingdom in 3 sections, these 3 sections show 3 types of afterlife where we are living in that bottum rung right now. We weep and gnash our teeth knowing there is so much more. When Jesus became the first born of the dead, he was raised in the type of body we dream for, a spiritual body where the molecules of Jesus became one with the earth, and he could be anything and he could do anything or be anyone.

I believe the rewards and punishment system is a concoction of what men teach in order to justify their condemnation theologies.

No one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born from above. No one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and spirit.

I see it.

I've entered.

Follow me so you will live.

The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Jesus gave the most important commandments - love God, love each other. That's pretty fundamental.

I love the stories of Jesus appearing in dreams to Muslims who reside in strict Muslim countries. Men who have never heard the gospel. This is happening frequently.
The old testament Israelites never heard of Jesus. I assure you (plural), they are not burning in hell.
