There are no explicit statements in the Bible that any of the people mentioned in the question are now in heaven. The belief on the part of many Christians that they are now in heaven is based on reading key Bible passages about their death and their status after death in light of a more generalized belief that humans go to heaven after they die. On the ...

As for Elijah, you could look at 2 Kings 2:11 (ESV): And as they still went on and talked, behold,chariots of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. You didn't mention Mary specifically, but she may be of interest. Revelation 12:1-6 (ESV) may refer to her:  And a great sign appeared in ...

Genesis 5:24 certainly does substantiate that Enoch is still in heaven because there is mention that he was specifically ‘NO MORE’ on the earth for anyone to see ever again. Whether or not his body is still alive in heaven is another question, Enoch could have died in the whereabouts God took him to. There is no indication as to whether or not his body ...

In Revelation 4:4, we are introduced to "24 elders" who throw down their crowns (4:10) and worship God. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. There is a lot of speculation as to the identity of these ...

There is no mention of Enoch dying a physical death: Hebrews 11:5 - "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death." As for the criminal on the cross ...

Yes. A resurrection happened already at the resurrection of Christ. And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. (Matt 27:52-53) These are the saints of the old testament such as Moses, Abraham, etc.

This answer is based on the Christian theology of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), and reflects the views of the "Swedenborgian" or "New Church" denominations that accept his theology. Except for the last part, about the "Peaceable Kingdom" passages in Isaiah, this answer is extracted and edited from my article, "Will We See our Pets Again in Heaven?" ...

Many believe that mankind has been on this planet for almost 6000 years (6 Millenia). The 7th, or Jubilee, Millenium is right around the corner. That will be the time when the Messiah (and us with Him) will reign in righteousness for a thousand years on Earth. This is what she is refering to. That should make any believer happy! Even so come quickly, Lord ...

In the Hebrew Bible, Jubilee refers to a set of practices around forgiveness of debts and restoration of land. Basically, every 7 years the people were supposed to hold a "sabbath" for the land and rest from farming. Then in the 50th year (the year after the 7th Sabbath/Sabbatical Year), all land ownership was supposed to resort to it's original ...
