Last week, and last blog (which you can find here) we talked about worship and understanding that everything we do, from waking to sleeping, is worship and should be seen as such. And that worship, in the New Heaven and New Earth, is singing and praising but it’s also walking with friends and enjoying that which God created. Simply put: We were created to worship … Continue reading What’s Next – Pt 5: Do We Become Angels?
First Off…read Psalm 48! Our psalm today is a reflection and praise on the city of Jerusalem. A praise on the magnitude and beauty of the city that was the epicenter for the Jewish people. But it’s more than that because Jerusalem was more than a city – it was believed to be the very place where Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac (Genesis … Continue reading Psalm 48: Boasting in God
Last week, and last blog (which you can find here) we talked about the “multitude” that John sees in Revelation 7:9-17. An understanding that our eternity with Christ in the New Earth will be filled with people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. A time where all those who profess who Christ is will be united in all their beauty and differences. But today, in … Continue reading What’s Next – Pt 4: An Eternity of Worship

This last … Continue reading Psalm 47: Thankful-Deliverance

But today, in our third of 5 series, we are going to talk about how vast and wide is God’s love. When we read that John saw a “multitude” of people … Continue reading What’s Next – Pt 3: The “Multitude”
First Off…read Psalm 46! I’ve thought about things that COULD happen that would make my world collapse. When I was a kid it was me not being around my parents. And not only not being around them but them actually being fully removed from my life. I couldn’t imagine not having my protectors, my providers, my love and support physically around me doing all those … Continue reading Psalm 46: Placing Peace in the Right Place
So last week we talked about our final “home” – that is…where do we end up in the “end” – and you can find that blog here. But today, in our second of 5 series, we are going to talk about that space between. Where are all the saints who have gone before us at? Assuming Christ doesn’t come in my lifetime…where do I go? … Continue reading What’s Next – Pt 2: The Intermediate State
