Q. First I want to thank the Lord for your website and pray God’s continued blessings on your ministry. Where do we born again Christians go when we die? Heaven or Paradise the compartment of Hades? Personally I feel it is irrelevant as I will be absent from the body and present with my Lord Jesus Christ where ever He is. There are however those who make an issue of this point. It is sad that Christians allow Satan to use this small point and others like it to divide Christians from fellowship.
A. Having correctly stated that believers who die go to be with the Lord, let’s determine where the Lord is. John 14:2-3 says,
“In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
His Father’s house is not in Paradise, but in Heaven.
