We plan for our trips, and study about our destination. We get excited and tell all our friends. We look online for pictures and reviews. We buy new clothes and stuff for the trip. We look forward to the quiet rest and good times we will have.
So where is all the talk about our Kingdom of Heaven? We’re going, right? So why are we so clueless?
I have been deep into study of prophecy lately, including delving into the original languages to get a clearer picture. It’s all quite fascinating, but I started to notice I was focusing on a bunch of negative things. Now in reality, I was searching for the Glory of Yahweh. Looking for His coming again to get me! So I am lead to perform a study of our destination after the trials and tribulations. (Although I believe it starts just before that )
We all know to some extent the concept of an ‘afterlife’ and what we call Heaven. But who can really describe it? And how would I explain it to someone without the concept? That begs the question… How did we get the idea to begin with? Obviously someone who is there has to tell us about it. It doesn’t seem at all likely that we just randomly invented it. … So! Lets dig in…..
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. KJV
Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. KJV
