Today we live in the remnants of a Paradise that was Lost. Even the land outside of Eden was rich in fruit bearing vegetation. That changed when Adam and Eve were cast outside of Eden and God made it harder for food to grow. So many have lived and died since then. What is there hope? How does the Bible describe the surroundings where they are resurrected to?
Isaiah 65:22 “They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat. For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full.”
Planting and Eating while Living as a staple on Earth does not describe angelic Life. Yes, 144,000 are Resurrected to Heaven for a specific purpose.
What of the other billions of dead ones, where should they expect to be resurrected?
WHERE Resurrected? Why this is true? All the dead are in God’s vast memory, every detail of their flesh and character with all their memories, all this made them a living soul.
Malachi 3:16″At that time those who fear Jehovah spoke with one another, each one with his companion, and Jehovah kept paying attention and listening. And a book of remembrance was written before him for those fearing Jehovah and for those meditating on his name”
They will be “remembered” (because there are only bones left for most, even these are gone for others) and God will recreate there soul and implant it into a human body that is free of the effects of sin. This is why the description of their surroundings aligns with life on Earth.
The fleshly resurrection will begin after Armageddon, where they will join those who survive the Great Day of God Almighty.
See Daniel 12:1 “During that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of your people. And there will occur a time of distress such as has not occurred since there came to be a nation until that time. And during that time your people will escape,(SURVIVE) everyone who is found written down in the book”.
12:2 “And many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up,(BE RESURRECTED) some to everlasting life and others to reproach and to everlasting contempt”.(depending on their future actions)
Isaiah 65:21 “They will build houses and live in them, And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage.”
Isaiah 33:24 “And no resident will say: “I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error.”
Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it.”
Micah 4:3,4 “He will render judgment among many peoples And set matters straight respecting mighty nations far away. They will beat their swords into plowshares And their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, Nor will they learn war anymore.4 They will sit, each one under his vine and under his fig tree, And no one will make them afraid”
They will never get sick or die, there will be Peace on Earth. They will build homes on their apportioned land. God will restore emotional balance that no one will shed a tear from physical or emotional pain. God will bless those who chose to live as He prescribes. They will bless themselves by imitating the Christ and his Way of Life. Life on Earth is foretold, of the billions living today, if they die today and are written in God’s Book of Life, they will rest in death, like a deep sleep, until they are remembered and raised to Earth as a human again.
Re.21:3″He will render judgment among many peoples And set matters straight respecting mighty nations far away. They will beat their swords into plowshares And their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, Nor will they learn war anymore.4 They will sit, each one under his vine and under his fig tree, And no one will make them afraid”
This Is the Truth about the Fleshly Resurrection to Life and the Hope of everlasting life from God’s Word. The Greatest Resurrection from death will be to Life as Humans on Earth. Life then will be better than anyone living at that time has ever experienced! They may even be granted Everlasting Life on what will become a Paradise Restored!
Acts 3:21 “Heaven must hold this one within itself until the times of restoration of all things of which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets of old.”
Mtt.19:28 “Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, in the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel.”
If Adam and Eve has not sinned, they would be alive on Earth with the many sinless children.
This was God’s Purpose in creating them, that they might fill the Earth and Subdue it.(groom it) It should be no surprise that only 144,000 humans were invited to Heaven. God is the unchanging Rock. His purpose is still for the Earth to be filled will His worshippers, that He might enjoy their company forever!
Will You Be There?
