What if 'Heaven for Humans' Is the Same as 'Earth for Demons'?

Maybe this is along the same lines as 'we already ARE in Heaven, only we don't believe it.' Think---angels had the ability to live forever, but not the free will we humans have (until they became demons). Maybe that's the difference between angels & demons---that demons are "aware" of their lack of free-will, whereas angels are still blissfully "unaware." On Earth, we are 'aware' of our lack of immortality; maybe we are just as "mortal" in Heaven, but blissfully 'unaware' of our lack of time to live! What do you think?

We are the angels of heaven. We lived before being born with our Heavenly Father. Our eldest brother presented a plan for us to to come to earth, gain a body and learn to be more like our Heaven Father. Lucifer, an other brother, presented a plan that was contrary. When our elder brother plan was accepted, Lucifer rebelled. He was cast out of heaven with a third of our brothers and sisters, where they would never gain a body and live for eternity as spirits only. We came to this earth. Jesus, our eldest brother, the first begotten, came and was our savior. He resurrected so that we can resurrect and keep our bodies.

Amen! (But--for those who think Heaven is some impossible place--perhaps you should state exactly what you mean when you say that. I think you mean that 'Heaven is the result of our actions if we act in a Heavenly way,' but how would I know what you mean?)

Angles do have free will. That is why Satan got into trouble. He used his free will to start trouble in heaven accusing God of that very thing. That the angels only worshiped him because they had no other choice. You see where that got him. Our free will may be somewhat different than the free will the angels have but I wouldn't know how to explain that if they are different.

I think there are different angels just as there are many different kinds of people and cultures. I think there are different heavenly places as well just as there are different area's on earth. I know we think of angels as good and demons as bad and of course would never think of disputing that. Perhaps it is matter of distance, close or far away. I think we have something unique here on earth a body and spirit and once it is gone it is gone and simply not the same. Suppose we have to be there to actually know for sure.
