Pamphlet 1915 Rev. kc 53-1

What will it be like living here with our God our Father?

When the Millennium is over.

And the final period, the final time of salvation has come to an end.

And the great white throne judgment has been concluded and the books have been closed.

Our Father has destroyed all evil rudiments and souls in the lake of fire and we shall begin the wonderful, peaceful eternity.

And so the question is often asked
"Can anything or anyone rebel again as did Satan in the 1st earth age?

In other words, how do we know there won't be another Satan?"

The answer is contained in understanding the plan of God itself.

No, it can never happen again.


Because all freewill souls will have exercised their freewill,
i.e. made their decisions as to who they will follow,
and will have been thoroughly tested to the point of irreversibility.

The wicked will have proven they won't repent
and the saints will have proven to always be faithful.

Have you not read of the testing of all the saints from Noah to Abraham to Christ Himself to You
(well maybe you keep a diary)?

So you now know why James says in chapter 1 verse 2 of his book,
"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;".

Hey, you get to "ace" another pop quiz!

Ladies and gentlemen, the 21st Chapter of Revelation.

Rev. 21:1 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. (bad translation here in KJV)
The word "first" used here is the Greek word "protos"
and is the same word translated "former" in verse 4.

Note: The Living Bible does translate "present" instead of "first" in Rev. 21:1.

So the heaven and earth that pass away in this verse is the one prior to the "new"
one which comes into existence "after" the lake of fire,
i.e. the present earth age that we are in now, the 2nd earth age.

We know from 2 Pet. 3 that there are three heaven and earth ages.

We also know from 2 Corinthians 12:2 that Paul was caught up to the third heaven.

It is the same earth but three different "ages" because the earth itself "abideth forever" (Eccles. 1:4).

The "world that then was" (Gen 1:2), prior to the foundation of this earth age,
was totally destroyed. It perished at the overthrow of Satan.

This one will perish at his destruction!

And so the 3rd earth age will be for all eternity.

The planet itself will be set back on its proper axis and correct orbital path.

The actual seas will be dried up and the water will return to the canopy from whence it came.

The earth will once again be the most beautiful paradise in the universe
(the wackos have it all wrong for this is the true greenhouse effect).

And our Father will call it Home!

Note: We flesh human beings get all excited when the thought crosses our minds that we might not have boating and fishing, or golf courses, or have sex in the next dimension. Just remember that our Father doesn't take anything away that He doesn't replace ten fold.  So did you know that the entire universe awaits for the perfection of the Sons of God?  Talk about a fishing expedition! See commentary on verse 7.

[2] And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
There's nothing more beautiful to an husband than his adorned bride!
[3] 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.
God promised to dwell with man as part of His everlasting, unbreakable covenant a long time ago.

He purposed it even from the beginning, for the desire of His heart is to be with
and among His children for ever and ever, world without end.

Here is the promised fulfilled in Rev. 21:3, i.e. the tabernacle IS with men, promised by our Father to Israel in Ezekiel 37:

Ezekiel 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

[27] My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

And do you know what?

That glorious holy city, the New Jerusalem, from that day forth,
from the day it comes down out of heaven throughout all eternity,
will be known and recognized as the Headquarters of the Universe,
also referred to as "Heaven", for it will bear the name of God Himself, Yahaveh Shamma,
which interpreted means "The LORD is there".

These are the very last words of the Book of Ezekiel concerning the new city:

Ezekiel 48:35 It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there.
What will it be like living there with our Father?
Rev. 21:4 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.
Can you even begin to imagine such a society?

No more pain and suffering, no more disease and war and death and dying,
no more pesky telemarketers interrupting your dinner trying to sell you something you don't want or need.

Yes, heaven on earth!

All the former things, all the evil spirits, all the wicked people, all corruptible flesh are passed away, GONE!
(I believe most telemarketers will eventually repent or change jobs and so will not be part of the second death.)

[5] And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Guess who's talking to John now!

"John, you tell My children that they can count on My Words coming to pass exactly as I have spoken them."

So if it sounds too utopian for the skeptic, or it sounds too good to be true, it isn't.

In fact the words of man cannot even begin to describe the beauty and wonder,
and yes, even the excitement of all that our Father has planned for His children.

Man's words cannot describe it because man's mind cannot imagine it.

This we know for it also is written and is true and faithful:

1 Cor. 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Now here comes a great opportunity.

Would you like to hear God speak to you?

He just told John to write His true and faithful words down for you and me.

Here's what He has to say to us.

He is speaking to us:

Rev. 21:6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Here's how the N.E.B. translation has this verse:
"Indeed', He said, 'they are already fulfilled. For I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end..."

Our Father tells us if we thirst for Him,
(Amos 8:11 ...not a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:),
He will provide us with all of the purest water of life that we could ever want.

And if we become DOERS and not just HEARERS,
i.e. if we overcome, you won't believe the reward He has in store for us!

[7] He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Living with our Father! Imagine that!

Now imagine inheriting ALL things:

Our Father OWNS, lock, stock, and barrel as they say, the Entire Universe.

And when He says we will inherit ALL THINGS, that's infinitely more than all the wealth on earth!

So if you are an overcomer, next time you're outside at night standing next to someone,
you can look up and point to the stars and say "You see this vast universe?

My family owns it all!"
(Just be very careful who you say that to. Use wisdom and common sense.)

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
