I first came across Jesse Duplantis Ministries when I was sitting on a couch in a Christian bookstore holding back tears. I had lost my mother to lung cancer. In my time of need, my cousin told me that even though my mother made it to Heaven, I would not be allowed to see her at all in the Kingdom of God. I was told that she would pass me on the street and not even recognize me. She went on to tell me that when I died I would be forbidden to enjoy the company of my husband. Her logic was that sex is sin and there is no sin in Heaven, therefore married people are forbidden to even be together! Her words ached my heart and put a full dose of fear in my throat. I was so scared of Heaven that I actually started begging God to just let me disappear and not go to this lonely place my cousin described.
So, there I sat in the Christian bookstore, weeping silently. I cried out to God with every fiber of my being and asked Him to please show me something. That is when I spotted a book called "Heaven, Close Encounters of the God Kind" by Jesse Duplantis. I opened the book and it actually fell to the spot where you saw the family having a picnic. The angel of the Lord told you that marriage in Heaven just only gets better. I bought your book and read all of it. It inspired me to go the book of Genesis and read how the Lord created this beautiful planet for His children to live victoriously in it!
Your book inspired me to have a new relationship with God and a better one! Your teachings feed my spirit and encourage me to go directly to God's Word to learn more and live more to the fullness of Christ!
