They may be atheists, but because they’re doing something with what they have been given to help people, God will give them more of what they need to help more people. So, their stars shall rise much higher and their suns shine more brightly. We can see this happening all around us everyday.

An angel told Daniel in one of his revelations to

shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” (Daniel 12:4, KJV)

Note that the angel did not just say that “knowledge shall increase,” but “knowledge shall be increased.” Who shall increase it? God Himself. He'll make things known to people intellectually who seek to know and need to know.

For example, new things are happening in the world of technology everyday. We now have computers, the internet, social media platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram,
Twitter and other things that are helping people to more easily connect to one another from around the world. Those who made these things become known, rich and have their suns are shining everywhere

It is God who gave them the higher knowledge and inspirations that they used to achieve those things, and He gave them because they sought it by doing something with the knowledge and talents they already had and seeking better ways to help people in the world.

They are rising and shining with God's glory in the world even though some of them do not know or serve God.
Though there are abuse and people sometimes use those things against God's plan and will. But they are using the lights of God to achieve things on earth, and God is always giving them more of what they need as they keep on working and using their abilities in the world

That does not mean that they will make heaven if they die without giving their lives to Jesus Christ.
The fact that God blesses people with his gifts does not mean that they’ll see His kingdom without being born again.
They are given those things because they obey certain natural or universal laws of God. They must also obey the spiritual and heavenly laws in order to make heaven
