Hebrews 9:8

The way into the holy place has not been disclosed as long as the outer tabernacle is still standing.  Thus the way into heaven was not disclosed as long as Jesus was still in the flesh.  When the outer tabernacle of His flesh was discarded and He ascended into heaven, then the way was made known.  That way is to follow Him.

No one had ascended into heaven except He who had descended: our Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:13).  He is the one who went up to heaven before us to make a way (Micah 2:13).  He Himself is the way (John 14:6). 

Every human being follows Him in death and therefore every human being goes to heaven.  But those who follow Him in this life experience the kingdom of heaven (i.e. the kingdom of God) in this life, and then receive honor in heaven. 

The world has known Christ in the flesh but we know Him thus no longer (2 Corinthians 5:16).  Let us worship the risen and omnipresent Christ.  The outer tabernacle has fallen and the way into the holy place has been disclosed for all to see through the eyes of faith.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
