Heaven is hiring! There are job openings in the Kingdom of Heaven! Learn more here!
This is a “calling” (Ephesians 1:18-19; Matthew 11:28-30) for anyone looking for a better life (John 10:10; John 3:15)!
In 1 Corinthians 6:2a, the Bible says that everyone who becomes a “saint” will eventually be a judge here on Earth for the Kingdom of Heaven!
(“Saint” is a “company” of Heaven name for an “employee” of God; another name is “Christian”.)
So God is “hiring” judges for the Kingdom of Heaven! It’s a better job than anything here on Earth! And it’s an entry-level job, with free training provided!
Are you interested? Would you like to apply? Read on to learn all about this wonderful opportunity!
What You Will Need to Apply
The following provides details regarding the “submission” of your:
Previous Training and Work History
For most companies here on Earth, some people will have lots of training and work history to submit on their applications; some people will only have a little training or work history; and some people won’t have any training or work history at all. Most earthly employers want someone with as much training and work history as possible.
God knows that everybody applying for His “job” needs “training” (Romans 3:23; 1 Corinthians 8:2); no previous training or work history is acceptable (Isaiah 64:6; Philippians 3:4-14). So His “jobs” are all entry-level, with free training provided (Isaiah 55:1-3) here, in this world (Hebrews 5:8).
Of course, some people will get more from “training” than others. In fact, there are some people that won’t “apply” until the last day this “job notice” is “open” to them (the day that they die). God will still hire those people; however, they obviously won’t be able to gain any “training” (1 Corinthians 3:15).
Hiring for this “job” will only continue until all the open positions are filled (2 Peter 3:9), and may be discontinued at any time (2 Peter 3:10; 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4; Revelation 3:3; Revelation 16:15)!
Don’t delay, apply today!
(2 Corinthians 6:2; Isaiah 55:6; Psalm 32:6)
Please note that the completion of your assigned training is essential (Matthew 10:22;Matthew 24:12-13; Mark 13:13; Revelation 2:10-11; Hebrews 10:38; 1 Corinthians 9:24-25).
Employers in most countries will require you to disclose any crimes you have committed (other than “minor traffic violations”: most companies don’t care if you’ve been caught driving a little too fast). It doesn’t matter where a crime was committed: regardless of what state’s or country’s laws were violated, most earthly employers require that all crimes be disclosed.
Nice employers will often hire a person with a criminal record if the person is honest, and truthfully lists the crimes he or she has committed. The person will be “forgiven” if they admit the wrongdoing AND promise not to intentionally break the law anymore (breaking the law while you’re working for a company could cause you to be dismissed (“fired”)).
Even if a person has a huge criminal record (and can’t even remember all the crimes, to list them all), many employers will regard a “good faith” attempt to list all the crimes as a sign of honesty, and a desire to do what is right.
Of course, earthly companies will need to do a background check, to see if an applicant has been truthful. Some people who have committed crimes are afraid of being denied a job if they admit their crimes; therefore, they just lie on their applications. They pretend no crimes were committed, and hope the employer doesn’t bother verifying the application.
However, Heaven has its very own “intelligence agency”, that tracks every person, and records every single thing he or she says (1 John 3:20; Matthew 12:36). Also, everyone will be judged for everything he or she does (Revelation 20:12-13). This “intelligence agency” exists to support the court system, the same court system that you’ll be working for as a judge (if you are “chosen” for the position, Matthew 22:14).
So, there’s no way to hide crimes from Heaven. When you “apply” to Heaven, you must admit your crimes.
Don‘t worry, though, because God is love (1 John 4:8,16): he is the kindest “boss” you could ever have. He loves “His people” (Ezekiel 11:20; Zechariah 8:7-10) so much that He adopts everyone that He “hires” (John 1:12-13; Romans 8:14-23; Galatians 4:4-7; Ephesians 1:4-6).
Also, don’t feel like you have to compete for a “job” with other people who have broken the law less than you. God knows that everyone has broken the law (has “sinned”, Romans 3:23; 5:12). Even more than nice earthly employers, God promises that if we admit our crimes (1 John 1:9-10) AND stop intentionally breaking the law (Ezekiel 18:30-32; Acts 3:19; Hebrews 10:26-27; Numbers 15:30-31), then He will “forget” all about our past crimes, and never mention them again (Psalm 103:10-18; Micah 7:18-19; Jeremiah 31:34; Ezekiel 18:22; Hebrews 8:12; Hebrews 10:17).
Nevertheless, if an “employee” that God has adopted as His own child intentionally breaks the law again, then God will “fire” that “employee” (Ezekiel 18:24-26). God is very forgiving, though (Matthew 18:21-22); and if the “employee” comes back to God, admits his or her “crime”, and again promises not to break the law anymore, then God will “hire” the person again.
You should be aware, however, that even though God will take back any person who asks, they may still lose some of their "pay" (1 Corinthians 3:14-15). It is much better to simply stop trying to break the law.
If we break the law accidentally, an earthly employer may not believe us, and may “fire” us, even though it was an accident. However, God knows if the law was broken accidentally (1 John 3:20-21), and will forgive us, as long as we are sorry and ask for forgiveness when we realize we’ve made a mistake (Leviticus 5:17; Numbers 15:28-29).
Applications for earthly employers often ask for “references”. The employers want to ask questions about the person that is trying to get a job. Earthly employers especially like references that are politicians and religious ministers, because these people are considered especially trustworthy.
In Heaven, most “references” (“witnesses”) are worthless (John 5:34). There is only one person who can be a “reference” for you: Jesus Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:8-12). He is both a government official AND a religious minister: the King of kings and Lord of lords (Acts 10:36; 1 Timothy 6:13-16; John 1:29,36; Revelation 17:14; Revelation 19:11-16) and High Priest Forever after the Order of Melchizedec (Hebrews 6:19-20).
Actually, Jesus is more than that: Jesus is also the only natural-born Son of God (the “Father”). So you’ll be having the “Boss’s” natural-born Son recommending you for the “job”! Nevertheless, for Jesus to be a “reference” for someone to His Father, Jesus requires that person to be a “reference” for Him to people here on Earth (Matthew 7:21-23; Matthew 10:32-33).
Even though “jobs” obviously involve “work”, let me state clearly that you can NOT “earn” this opportunity through “working”. Jesus earned His position in Heaven; but our “positions” in Heaven come only because of His “reference” efforts for us. None of us have ANYthing of our own to offer God for accepting us; without the help of Jesus, each of us would be rejected (Ephesians 2:9-10). We are able to take advantage of this wonderful “employment” opportunity, and “work”, because Jesus is willing to be our “reference”, and speak well of us to the Great “Boss”, God.
Nevertheless, please do not forget that the entire point of hiring someone for a “job” is to get some work done. God’s “hiring” of us is totally pointless if, having given us the “job”, we then refuse to “work”. God IS the kindest “boss” of all; but be sure, God will “get the work done”, with or without us. If anyone refuses to “work”, God will “fire” that person, and hire someone else who will “work”.*

How To “Apply” for “Salvation”
Please note: God’s “company” of Heaven uses some special terms, such as “salvation”; definitions will be given below, as needed.
When you “apply”, be sure to mention that you are “applying” for “salvation”. When you are “hired” by God, you will be “saved”. (This “job” has benefits which improve the lives of “employees” so much, it‘s REALLY like having a completely new life (Romans 6:3-4)! Like being “born again” (1 Peter 1:22-23; John 3:3)! All of Heaven’s “employees” consider themselves “saved” from their previous lives!)
As was mentioned above, God is not interested in your “previous training and work history”; and all the “jobs” that He offers are entry-level, with free training. You only need to go to Him, “just as you are”.
God only accepts “applications” “in person”. If you are “hired”, you and God will be spending a LOT of time together, so it is sensible to start getting to know each other right away.
You must begin the “application process” through Heaven’s “intelligence agency”. As was mentioned above, everything you say is recorded; so all you need to do is just speak, as if God was right there with you (in a very real sense, He is (Psalm 139:7-12)). Speaking to God this way is called “praying”; and a single message to God is called a “prayer”.
(Please, don’t feel shy! After all, Heaven’s “intelligence agency” has already recorded everything you’ve ever said anyway. It’s “speaking”, just like you’ve always done, except that’s it’s for a special, better purpose.)
Confess Your Sins
You should begin this first, “salvation prayer” by admitting right at the beginning that you have done some things in your life that you shouldn’t have done, and asking God to forgive you. In the language of the “company” of Heaven, this is admitting you have been a “sinner” (someone who “sins”) and asking God to forgive your “sins” (your crimes against Him; your violations of the laws of Heaven, which are God‘s laws).
In your “job” training, you will learn more about what is a “sin”; for now, just try to mention whatever things come to mind that you think you may have done wrong.
This is called “confessing your sins”, and admitting that you have been a “sinner”.
As was mentioned above, you will also need to stop trying to break the law if you want to keep your “job”. So, as you are asking for this “salvation” from God, you need to tell Him that you will stop trying to “sin”. This is called “repentance”.
God is such a wonderful “Boss” that He provides assistance to resist the temptation to “sin” (Philippians 2:13).
Don’t try to fight it on your own! God wants to help, so let Him!
Accept Jesus Christ as Your Savior
To complete your application, you need to let God know that you accept Jesus Christ as your “Savior” (“reference”). In the language of the “company” of Heaven, Jesus is generally referred to as “Savior” rather than “Reference”. As part of the “company” of Heaven, you will be required to obey Jesus.
Jesus Christ is able to be your “Savior“ (“reference”) because of who He is, and how He lived. As was mentioned above, Jesus is the “Boss’s” (God the Father’s) natural-born Son. From His birth, Jesus always obeyed the Law, and the “Boss’s” (God the Father’s) rules. So Jesus didn’t need to admit to any crimes (didn‘t need to “confess any sins”).
Jesus was murdered by the world for being “too” nice (John 3:20). However, because He had never broken any law, Jesus was brought back to life by God (John 21:14; Acts 4:10; 1 Corinthians 15:20) (“raised from the dead”). Jesus is still alive, and will continue to live (Romans 6:9; Hebrews 7:24). Obviously, Jesus couldn't be your reference if He was still dead.
The murder of Jesus led to a murder “case” and a “wrongful death lawsuit” against the world and its leader, Satan (a Latin name, meaning “accuser”, Revelation 12:7-12). There was a verdict (John 3:18-19); and since Jesus had never broken any laws, He won His “cases” against Satan and the “world” (Matthew 12:20).
The “damages” awarded to Jesus were everything, including everything that Satan and the “world” have ever had (1 Corinthians 15:27-28). Satan and the “world” have also been sentenced to eternal torture in the prison of Hell (Mark 9:43; Luke 16:23; 2 Peter 2:4). The death of Jesus even won Him the right to be a “Savior” for other people, so that they could be “saved” (“hired” into the “company” of Heaven) (Revelation 5:9).
As was mentioned above, Jesus is only willing to be your “reference” to God if you are willing to be a “reference” for Him to people here on Earth. This is actually a part of your training for your future “job” as a judge.
You see, anyone who is not “hired” into the “company” of Heaven is considered by the court system of Heaven to be a part of the “world”. All of the “world” has been ordered to be imprisoned in Hell; and either you’re a part of the “company” of Jesus, or you’re part of the “world” (Matthew 12:30; Luke 11:23).
What Jesus expects of those who act
as “references” for Him is that they tell other people about Jesus.
This is called “witnessing”.
To assist those hired by the “company” of Heaven in their “job training” and “witnessing” efforts, a training manual titled “The Bible” (or “The Holy Bible”) has been written. You can find one in all finer bookstores.
There are also local unions of “employees” (“saints”, or “Christians”) of the “company” of Heaven. They are known by several names, such as “churches”, "assemblies", and "congregations". They are basically unions for "Christian workers" (except that the "head" of all of these "unions" is the "Boss's" Son, Jesus). Although some are better than others, the good ones are really helpful! It is recommended that you try to find and join one of these assemblies (Hebrews 10:25).
often another good place to find “The Bible”. They can also help you with some special “job training” activities, such as “baptism” and “communion” (also known as “the Lord’s Supper”), which you can learn more about later if you are “hired”.
There are also “Christian” websites (hopefully you will find this one helpful); television programs and networks; bookstores; and many other sources of help. “Company” of Heaven “employees” in many of these places can help you find additional sources of help in your “training”. Just ask around!
If you are “hired”, you will also receive instruction from the Holy Spirit, also known as “the Comforter”. “The Comforter” will come to you, and give you one-on-one, personalized instruction (John 14:26). With the “company” of Heaven, you will never be left on your own (Matthew 28:20).
As you learn more and more about your “job”, you will be able to do more and more “witnessing”. Together, the “training” and the “witnessing” will prepare you for your “job” as a judge in the Kingdom of Heaven. Keep trying!
An Example “Application” Prayer
Here is an example of how to “pray” to submit your “application” for “salvation”:
If you prayed this prayer, then congratulations! YOU ARE HIRED!
You have just made the best choice you will ever make!
Welcome to the family!
Please use the “Make Contact!” page on this website, or the “Comments” section at the bottom of this page, to write in, and tell about your choice!
*You may have heard some “employees” (“Christians”) say that we are not “saved” (“hired”) because of our “work”, but because of our belief (“faith”) in the “Charity” (or “Grace”) of Jesus; and they will usually quote Ephesians 2:8-9. As you could see above, this is true. However, I want to quote Ephesians 2:8-10 (one additional verse) here:
We are not “saved” by good works, but we are “created” by good works.
In terms of “getting a job with God”, we are not “hired” because of our
“work”; however, we do become (“are created” as) “employees” because of
(through) our “work”.
Simply put, you can’t be an “employee” if you aren’t willing to “work”.

There is a prophecy in the Old Testament (the Torah, in fact) which names Jesus BY NAME, along with crucifixion imagery. Learn about it here.
