The same question arises when you consider those who become medically/clinically dead before being revived, especially when some of them claim to have had visions of God or heaven.

Sometimes, understanding the writings of Paul are hard, because unlike the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and John; Paul was only privileged to see Jesus in his Spiritual form and not his physical form.

Opening Let's start here: Before the world ever was, the Son, God, tells us that he was with the Father, God, in Glory. 1 This Being God [the One who IS] is, according to Church teaching, "most happy in and by Himself."2 God the Father tells us who it is in whom is ALL his delight: His Son, the Beloved.2 So he who in whom is ALL of God's delight must be ...

Least in the kingdom of heaven also relates to the 144,000; especially when referring to the levels. They have been chosen and not just called. God will use them to complete His end time work by His spirit which will dwell inside of them. The grace/unmerited favor will enable them to understand God's righteousness in their own lives which will allow the ...

Most saints, before entering heaven, will first go to purgatory according to the Catholic church. While in purgatory they are purified ("purged") until they may enter heaven.
