Judges 13:20, How To Get To Heaven
As the flame blazed up from the altar toward heaven, the angel of the LORD ascended in the flame.
//Readers of the Bible are familiar with many different ways to get to heaven. Jesus ascended from a mountain. John visited heaven in a vision. Enoch appears to have been stolen up by the hand of God. Elijah flew up in a chariot. Clouds appear to be common vehicles for transport to and from heaven. You can probably think of other examples.
But here’s a trick you might not know about. When the angel came to Samson’s parents telling them they would have a son, he (the angel) went back home to heaven by asking them to sacrifice a goat to God on an altar. Once the fire grew strong, he hopped into the fire and rode the flame up to heaven.
