Heaven and Hell in Lord of the Flies.

2Cor. 12:1 I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to begained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. 2I know a man in Christwho fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in thebody or out of the body I do not know --God knows. 3And I know that this man--whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows-- 4wascaught up to paradise. He heard inexpressible things, things that man is notpermitted to tell. 5I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast aboutmyself, except about my weaknesses.

Otherwise they might seewith their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I wouldheal them.' 28"Therefore I want you to know that God's salvation has been sent to theGentiles, and they will listen!" 2930For two whole years Paul stayed there in his ownrented house and welcomed all who came to see him. 31Boldly and without hindrance hepreached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.

On the Island of “Lord of the Flies” | Josephine Widjaja

Acts 1:1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesusbegan to do and to teach 2until the day he was taken up to heaven, aftergiving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. 3After hissuffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he wasalive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom ofGod. 4On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command:"Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you haveheard me speak about. 5For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will bebaptized with the Holy Spirit." 6So when they met together, they asked him, "Lord,are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?" 7He saidto them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his ownauthority. 8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you willbe my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."9After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him fromtheir sight. 10They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenlytwo men dressed in white stood beside them. 11"Men of Galilee," they said,"why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been takenfrom you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."

Jan 03, 2014 · Lord of the Flies – From Heaven to Hell William Golding uses the novel Lord of the Flies to reflect today’s society and the tainting impact man has had on earth.

What does the Bible say about: Heaven & the Kingdom of God

Dan. 4:19 Then Daniel (also called Belteshazzar) was greatly perplexedfor a time, and his thoughts terrified him. So the king said, "Belteshazzar, do notlet the dream or its meaning alarm you."
Belteshazzar answered, "My lord, if only the dream appliedto your enemies and its meaning to your adversaries! 20The tree you saw, which grew largeand strong, with its top touching the sky, visible to the whole earth. The tree you saw,which grew large and strong, with its top touching the sky, visible to the whole earth,21with beautiful leaves and abundant fruit, providing food for all, giving shelter to thebeasts of the field, and having nesting places in its branches for the birds of the air--22you, O king, are that tree! You have become great and strong; your greatness has grownuntil it reaches the sky, and your dominion extends to distant parts of the earth.
23"You, O king, saw a messenger, a holy one, coming downfrom heaven and saying, `Cut down the tree and destroy it, but leave the stump,bound with iron and bronze, in the grass of the field, while its roots remain in theground. Let him be drenched with the dew of heaven; let him live like the wildanimals, until seven times pass by for him.'
24"This is the interpretation, O king, and this is thedecree the Most High has issued against my lord the king: 25You will be driven away frompeople and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like cattle and be drenchedwith the dew of heaven. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge thatthe Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes. 26Thecommand to leave the stump of the tree with its roots means that your kingdom willbe restored to you when you acknowledge that heaven rules. 27Therefore, O king,be pleased to accept my advice: Renounce your sins by doing what is right, and yourwickedness by being kind to the oppressed. It may be that then your prosperity willcontinue."
28All this happened to King Nebuchadnezzar. 29Twelve monthslater, as the king was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon, 30he said,"Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mightypower and for the glory of my majesty?"
31The words were still on his lips when a voice came from heaven,"This is what is decreed for you, King Nebuchadnezzar: Your royal authority has beentaken from you. 32You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals;you will eat grass like cattle. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledgethat the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone hewishes."
33Immediately what had been said about Nebuchadnezzar wasfulfilled. He was driven away from people and ate grass like cattle. His body was drenchedwith the dew of heaven until his hair grew like the feathers of an eagle and hisnails like the claws of a bird.
34At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyestoward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honoredand glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdomendures from generation to generation. 35All the peoples of the earth areregarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and thepeoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: "What haveyou done?"
36At the same time that my sanity was restored, my honor andsplendor were returned to me for the glory of my kingdom. My advisers and nobles sought meout, and I was restored to my throne and became even greater than before.

Isa. 65:16 Whoever invokes a blessing in the land will do so by the Godof truth; he who takes an oath in the land will swear by the God of truth. For the pasttroubles will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes. 17"Behold, I will create newheavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor willthey come to mind. 18But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for Iwill create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. 19I will rejoice overJerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heardin it no more. 20"Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a fewdays, or an old man who does not live out his years; he who dies at a hundred will bethought a mere youth; he who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. 21Theywill build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22Nolonger will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as thedays of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the worksof their hands. 23They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune; forthey will be a people blessed by the LORD, they and their descendants with them. 24Beforethey call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. 25The wolf and thelamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be theserpent's food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,"says the LORD.

Isa. 51:11 The ransomed of the LORD will return. They will enter Zionwith singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them,and sorrow and sighing will flee away. 12"I, even I, am he who comforts you. Whoare you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass, 13that you forgetthe LORD your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth,that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who isbent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor? 14The cowering prisonerswill soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread. 15ForI am the LORD your God, who churns up the sea so that its waves roar-- the LORD Almightyis his name. 16I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of myhand-- I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth,and who say to Zion, `You are my people.'" 17Awake, awake! Rise up, OJerusalem, you who have drunk from the hand of the LORD the cup of his wrath, you who havedrained to its dregs the goblet that makes men stagger.
