What Did God Just Do? Addendum
I posted on 12-19-2021 my original article: “What Did God Just Do?” and believed that it was complete. However just before midnight that same day, sleeping and suddenly. I heard my name and came quickly fully awake. At that point God reminded me that I had other information that should have been in the article. So I am now putting that information in this article so that those who may have read the first article believing they had all they needed to know. Would not miss this important information.
God has told us in His word what He wanted us to know about the end times. Actually though we think of it as the end times that is really incorrectly. To be more clear it is the end of what we know as the end of the church age. It leads to the beginning of the reign of Jesus Christ which shall never end!
John 14: 3
(1) Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
(2) In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
(3) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
Here John is telling us what Jesus told the believers just before ascending back into heaven. It is clear that this is being explained to us in a manner the Jews could easily understand. It was a parallel to how the Jewish Courtship and Weddings were.
Revelation 21: thru 3
(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.
(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.
(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.
The Bible tells us that after the great tribulation there will be a one thousand year reign of Jesus on the earth. Then He will destroy the current heavens and earth and create a completely new heaven and earth that I expect to be very similar to what we started with for Adam and Eve. We shall never again see the kind of mess we have now! It is my understanding of the word that the New Jerusalem will be the home of the church!
