heaven

Have you ever wondered how many people are entering heaven?  Below are the testimonies of two conservative ministers, who both had out of body experiences:

1987-1991

According to Pastor Yong Park Gyu (conservative presbyterian pastor, now deceased, who had an out of body experienced following a serious stroke in 1987), God informed him that as few as 1 in 1,000 people were entering heaven between 1987 to 2001.  That’s 0.1%!  The pastor gave away all his money following his experience.  Presbyterians do not expect to see extraordinary miracles:

From here: “Presbyterians are perhaps less prone to expect extraordinary miracles than our sisters and brothers in either the Catholic or the Pentecostal traditions, but we share with them a confident prayer life, a belief in God’s abiding Spirit, and faith in the central mysteries of Christ’s incarnation, suffering death and resurrection.”

1979

In 1979, Howard Pittman, a conservative baptist minister in the US, ex-police officer and politician, suffered severe internal bleeding whereupon he said he met God and was shown that at that moment in time only 2.5% of people were entering heaven.  Baptists also do not expect to see extraordinary miracles:

Baptist beliefs:

Now why all this sickness if the Apostolic Signs were still in effect?  Answer: They WEREN’T still in effect, because they were only needed in the early ministry of the Apostles for the purpose of confirming the truth to Israel. 

Now we firmly believe that God can still work miracles and heal anyone He chooses, and we believe that the prayers of God’s people can move Him to work miracles, but let’s not confuse answered prayers with Apostolic Signs, because there’s a vast difference.  We believe in healing; we just don’t believe in healers.

Note that presbyterians and baptists are sceptical of seeing supernatural miracles on earth in modern times.  This increases the credibility of the supernatural testimonies of these two ministers.  Pastor Park gave away USD$ 150 Million, five luxury cars and virtually everything he owned.  (I believe he may have kept some of his clothes.)  He was like this merchant in the Bible:

Matthew 13:45-46 King James Version (KJV)

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Jesus said:

Matthew 7:13-14 King James Version (KJV)

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

The gate is straight because the path of righteousness has no crookedness in it.  Further, the path is narrow.  There is little or no room for compromise: We cannot do whatever we want and wander around.

Few there be that find it
Examples of making up our own God and our own righteousness
God made everything and gave us everything. Be respectful, thankful and humble before him
First major barrier - PRIDE
An example of humility
Humble people of God
Second major barrier - APATHY
Third major barrier - LOVE OF SELF
So, what does the road to hell look like?
The account of Polycarp, Bishop of Smyrna in the early Christian Church

[…] I have heard the testimony of two men of God, in separate incidences, say that the rate of entry into heaven is less than 2.5%. […]
