Our Eternal home

Our Eternal home

Beyond the second coming of Christ there stretches an endless vista of delight. All
who love Him will discover the deep and wonderful meaning of immortality, the sheer bliss of knowing that life will go on and on forever, without fear of sickness or death.
What will this life be like? Will it be living? How and where will it be spent?

Once more our Bible has answers. Within its hallowed pages we will find Detailed picture of our eternal home.

The first millennium will be spent in heaven, where the saints will live and reign with Christ'a thousand years (revelation 20;4).
While there they will have access to the books of record and so satisfy themselfs why some loved ones are not among the saved and why God deals as He does with the wicked. See 1 corinthians 6;3

Then they will return to this earth to witness the moving scenes recorded in the closing chapters of the book of revelation.

"And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride adorned for her husband"(revelation 21;2)

As the majestic city settles upon the earth the wicked dead will come to life. Satan who has been "Bound" for a thousand years by the fact that he had no one to tempt will resume his nefarious plotting, persuading the hosts of the doomed to compass "the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city (revelation 20;9)

But they will notcapture it. Instead they will meet God.
They will see him upon His "great white throne" and stand in awe as "the books" are opened and the final judgement is pronounced. At last, in sight of all the redeemed, all the angles, and every creature in the universe, the stort of sin will come to a dramatic close as fire flashes from heaven and satan and his follows are consumed. See verses 9-15.

Then will come pass the apostle peter's prediction concerning "the day of the lord" " the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up;( 2 peter 3;10). Every trace of evil will be so completely removed that it will "not be remembered, nor come into mind" (isaiah 65;17).

Out of the ashes of the old word God will make the "new heqvens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness" ( 2 peter 3;13). John tells us that he saw in vision " a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away: ( matthew 5;5 ). See psalm 37;11.
