    If flesh and blood can not enter the kingdom (1 Corin.15:50), Where did Elijah and Enoch go when they were taken?

    Flesh and blood, as in our corruptible bodies cannot enter the Kingdom of God (v42-43), that's why it goes on to say in v51 "we shall all be changed...and the dead raised incorruptible..."Elijah and Enoch both went to be with God, but no human will enter the kingdom of God (the New Earth, commonly referred to as Heaven) until after the judgement. Similarly, no one will enter the lake of fire (the final Hell) until the judgement even though non-Christians when they die will go to a temporary place of punishment (Hades).

    Its 1 Cor. 15 Enoch and Elijha In my opinion were changed the same way we will be in the twinkling of an eye at the last trump. We obviously are not told a whole lot but we are told flesh and blood can not enter heaven. So something happened.

    So.....there is not a quote in scripture saying something like "No one will enter the Kingdom Of Heaven before the Lord"? I've heard somethin to that effect but can not find it.

    Found what I was looking for. Finally. "No one has ascended into heaven but He who descended from heaven, the Son of man." (John 3:13 RSV)

    Well I just came to ask if either of these werewhat you were looking for but see you found it already:)1Cr 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.Jhn 3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

    For John 3:13...Who ascended himself up to heaven? Elijah and Enoch ascended by the hand of God - if you will (or God's hand/help). Christ did this on his own as the son of God.Number two:Matthew 17:2-3
    And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
    So the answer is they were taken to heaven, and we have one of them here at the transfiguration.Luke 9:31
    Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
    Description of the same event - they appeared gloriously. (And that one is for samy.) [​IMG]

    What makes you think they entered heaven as flesh and blood?

    It does not say they died. If they are the two witnesses during the tribulation, they are killed and does't it say they bleed?

    Well... I'm sure that God took care of the flesh and blood thing. He can turn water into wine, and make donkey's speak. I'm sure he took care of the flesh and blood before they entered heaven to [​IMG]:blessyou:
