Beth Moore Quotes on Heaven: 10 Memorable Statements from the Evangelical Christian

By    |   Saturday, 09 May 2015 05:26 AM

Heaven’s a place beyond life, and it’s a place you earn, says evangelical Christian Beth Moore. Here are 10 of her more memorable quotes on the subject:

1. Reflecting on the drought death of trees on her Texas Hill Country property and the transience of life on earth, Moore wrote in her Living Proof Ministries blog: “We’d finally given up what was dead and not coming back. I wish I were not just talking about trees. We Moores and Jones have had some hard things to let go of over the last several years. Droughts, dying, death, grief. Of course, embedded here in this soil where thorns and thistles prosper, we earthlings will always have those things nearby to remind us that this place in no permanent home. We long for a better country.”

2. From her book, “Looking Up: Trusting God With Your Every Need,” here’s Moore’s take on arriving in heaven and wishing you’d spent more time at the office: “I am convinced that when the last chapter of each life story is recorded in the annals of heaven, people would rather have lived out their fullness of days with purpose rather than painlessness.”

3. “I was 9 when I walked the aisle to profess my faith in Christ. I understood the basics of my decision: that I was a sinner and needed saving if I wanted to go to heaven. I could summarize many sermons I heard as a child with one thundering question: Do you want to go to hell? No, I did not. I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to go to heaven, either, but it clearly would beat hell.” Writing about her childhood in the church in Arkansas for Christianity Today.

4. From her book “Looking Up,” Moore said: “I am convinced that when the last chapter of each life story is recorded in the annals of heaven, people would rather have lived out their fullness of days with purpose rather than painlessness.”

5. From Moore’s Bible study guide, “Jesus the One and Only,” cited as a “false teaching” on the King’s Dale blog: “Every hour you do on your job as working for the Lord gets punched on a time clock in heaven ... You possess a heavenly bank account in which He is making divine deposits for every moment you work as unto Him.”

6. From Moore’s Bible study guide, “Breaking Free,” also cited on the King’s Dale blog as false teaching: “I think heaven will be heaven because He [God] will be there, but He thinks it will be heaven because you will be there.”

7. In her book “Jesus, the One and Only,” Moore wrote: "(In) Matthew 3:16 we’re told, ‘At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him.’ Try to picture that with me. What in the world does heaven look like open? I mean somebody just explain that to me.”

8. Also in the book, Moore wrote: “What I want you to understand is that heaven is right there. We look up at that sky and the expanse of the stars. He is literally just an open window from us, sitting on His throne, and His presence is in us and on us. God upon His throne is near. We just cannot see it.”

9. Saying she has “at least a hundred questions” to ask the mother of Jesus, Moore anticipates, in “Jesus, the One and Only,” some good conversation in heaven: “Part of the fun of heaven will be hearing spiritual giants tell the details of the old, old stories. Mary certainly wouldn’t have thought of herself as a spiritual giant, would she? I would love to know the exact moment this young adolescent absorbed the news that she would carry and deliver God’s Son.”

10. When she’s done with Mary, Moore said she wants to go to the source, and hear a replay of Jesus’ post-resurrection words to Cleophas and his traveling companion on the road to Emmaus: “What I would give to hear that comprehensive dissertation. Christ began with the books of Moses, went straight to the prophets, and explained what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself. Part of heaven for me will be hearing a replay of this sermon!”
