The New Heaven and the New Earth
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. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.(Revelation 21:1-4) KJV
We refer to the life after this one as “heaven” because we haven’t paid attention to what the Bible says. We’ll eventually live in a new Jerusalem at the the location presently occupied by our Earth.
When the mystery of God is finished will time stop? Is eternity being bored out of our minds for ever and ever. Or is eternity where there’s no passage of time? We can solve this conundrum with physics.
The Broad Narrative
Dwelling in the Light
Christ became sin for us by sacrificially allowing protons to emit their light and become neutrons during nucleosynthesis. “The lamb slain from the foundation of the world,” isn’t poetic or symbolic, it’s physics.
When the new Jerusalem comes down from God out of heaven, the Earth will be gone. What does the new Jerusalem come down to? What can we deduce about the new Earth of Revelation 21?
We’re children of light. We’ve been called to the light. A home has been prepared for us in the light. Let’s cast off the works of darkness and walk in the light.
Overcoming is when we allow the Word of God to change us and make us more like the Lord. It’s when we realize that there is no spoon.
Denying the truth about God so that we may live an immoral life with no guilt has a glitch: we all still have guilt.
1+1 = 2 is math, but it is also logical. It’s an example of cause and effect.
And the foundations of the wall of the city were layers of crystalline material arranged in order.
God’s glory will be the light we live by, unimpeded, for the rest of forever.
The only way for your name to be written in the book of life is: you must believe in Jesus Christ.
We live in a universe which is governed by physical laws. One of these is the first law of thermodynamics.
Christ is Coming
We’re supposed to be warning the people of our time of the imminent return of Jesus Christ. Are you, Christian, warning anyone about anything?
Jesus is coming soon. It’s Christmas and the celebration of Jesus coming as a baby, but we live in anticipation of His return as King. Many people believe that the Lord may return at anytime, but can he? What has to happen first?
Can you think of ways in which keeping sayings of the Bible has helped you this year?
The Time is at Hand. Are we ready?
Every one who interacts with the Bible with the intention of influencing what people think about it will be held accountable.
Doggie heaven? Will there be any Canines in heaven?
Do you have a star or an angel on the top of your Christmas tree? Either one is appropriate. In keeping with the narrative of the story, it’s fitting to follow the star to the place where you give your gifts.
can phenomena, like the star of Bethlehem, be incorporated into Matty’s Paradigm?
Science people think that the Bible is anachronistic poetry and Bible people ignore science.
Here’s a warning about tampering with the contents of the Bible.
If Jesus is coming quickly then what are we doing to get ready?
Anything referred to as a “scientific fact,” but which was designed expressly to support the narrative of one specific paradigm, is paradigm-dependent and therefore doesn’t fit the definition of “fact.”
