Would The Kingdom of Heaven be a boring place where you only pray all day long?

 
Que nous disent les Écritures concernant ces lieux célestes?

Tout d'abord, il est important de comprendre que les Écritures parlent de 3 lieux distincts: Le jardin d'Eden, le Royaume des Cieux et la Nouvelle Jérusalem.

Le Jardin d'Eden 
C'est le lieu terrestre situé dans l'hémisphère oriental où vivaient Adam et Ève. Selon certaines Écritures, Adam a été créé au centre de la Terre, dans le pays d'Elda, puis emmené dans le Jardin d'Eden à l'Est de nos frontières terrestres, pour en prendre soin et nourrir les animaux. Adam et Ève vécurent dans le Jardin pendant 7 ans, jusqu'à ce que le diable les séduise et qu'ils soient chassés et ramenés au lieu d'origine de la création d'Adam (le pays d'Elda), au centre de la Terre. Notez que le centre ou nombril de la Terre est aussi connue comme etant le Temple de l'Esprit du Seigneur. 
 


Dans la vidéo ci-dessous, on peut voir des cartes portulans du 14e au 16e siècle, inscrites sur des parchemins, avec des roses des vents, et des lignes de rhumb croisées. Ces roses des vents étaient les éléments de base utilisés pour la navigation. La manière dont ces cartes ont été produites reste un secret d'État. Cependant, elles comportent toutes une très grande rose des vents au centre de l'Afrique, indiquant qu'il s'agit du centre de la Terre, mais aussi du trône d'un grand prêtre. Notez que cette partie de la Terre est exceptionnellement riche en ressources naturelles. Son sol abonde des gisements minéraux de classe mondiale, notamment le cobalt, l'or, le cuivre, le bois, la potasse, le plomb, le zinc, le phosphate, le manganèse, l'uranium, les dérivés de niobium et de tantale, les minerais de fer, des réserves mondiales de diamants et de coltan. C'est aussi la deuxième réserve de gaz et de pétrole brut d'Afrique centrale et australe et la deuxième plus grande forêt tropicale au monde avec une biodiversité incomparable où l'on retrouve une panoplie d'animaux rares. 

 

Satan's most basic strategy, the same one he used on Adam and Eve, is to make us believe that sin brings fulfillment, satisfaction and the opportunity to enjoy life to its fullest. Whereas the absence of sin inevitably leads to boredom and lack of fulfillment. Satan knows full well that human desires are insatiable. Sin, which at first seems to make life interesting, will inevitably lead to desires that are impossible to fulfill or satisfy.

  • Proverbs 27:20 "Shéol and Abaddon are never satisfied; so the eyes of man are never satisfied."

  • Ecclesiastes 6:7 "All a man’s labor is for his mouth, yet his appetite is never satisfied."

Satan also knows that no one hardens into sin at once. It starts with suggestion, which arouses envy and desire. Then comes indulgence, which becomes a habit or a practice that turns into an obstinacy that one defends to the hilt. It all ends with a burnt conscience and a reprobate mind.

In reality, sin darkens and weakens the soul by stripping it of its divine strength and turning the heart away from the spiritual framework.  Sin expels the Love of the Father and deprives us of that close communion with ELOHIM through which we can see Him as He really is: an infinite reservoir of fascination. All that is good, pleasant, refreshing, peaceful and positive comes from ELOHIM and He promises that we will rejoice and experience endless pleasures. In His presence, boredom becomes an impossibility.

The Bible teaches that the physical world is only the limitation of what our eyes sees.

  • Jeremiah 5:21 "“who have eyes but do not see"

 

Although the physical world retains lots of beauty, it's only a distorted version of the spiritual realm, which is far more real and beautiful. The Bible also alludes to the fact that the Kingdom of Heaven is not a place of accumulation of material pleasures or possessions but is primarily a place of spiritual fulfillment producing the joy of existing.

  • Isaiah 32:17 "The work of righteousness will be peace; the service of righteousness will be quiet confidence forever."

  • Psalms 16:11 "You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand."

  • Romans 14:17 "For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit."

What does the Bible tell us about the Kingdom of Heaven?

First of all, it's important to understand that the Scriptures speak of 3 distinct places: The Garden of Eden, the Kingdom of Heaven and the New Jerusalem.

The Garden of Eden  

This is the earthly place in the Eastern hemisphere where Adam and Eve lived. According to certain Scriptures, Adam was created at the Center of the Earth, in the land of Elda, and then taken to the Garden of Eden to care for it and feed the animals. Adam and Eve remained in the Garden for 7 years, until the devil deceived them and they were cast out and led back to the place of origin of Adam's creation (the land of Elda), which is located within our terrestrial boundaries.

The Kingdom of Heaven

Abraham's bosom (Luke 16:22-23) was a place within the Abode of the Dead where the saints and prophets of the Old Testament were gathered after their physical death. They remained there until YESHUA made atonement for their sins on the cross. It was only after the Lord's descent into the abode of the dead that the saints and prophets were released, resurrected and entered the holy city (the Kingdom of heaven), where they live to this day.

  • Matthew 27:52-53 “When Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, He yielded up His spirit. At that moment the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth quaked and the rocks were split. The tombs broke open, and the bodies of many saints who had fallen asleep were raised."

  • Ephesians 4:8-10 “This is why it says: “When He ascended on high, He led captives away, and gave gifts to men.” What does “He ascended” mean, except that He also descended to the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is the very One who ascended above all the heavens, in order to fill all things..”

  • Matthew 8:11 “I say to you that many will come from the east and the west to share the banquet with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.”

The souls of those who die in Christ are transported to the Holy City (the Kingdom of Heaven), where they will be carefully guarded in a state of utter peace until the resurrection of the dead. It is only after the Last Judgment that they will enter the New Jerusalem.

The New Jerusalem

The New Jerusalem is at once the new heaven and the new earth that will descend from heaven, the divine temple and the restoration of the Garden of Eden.

 

Several verses give us a very small glimpse of the New Jerusalem in greater detail:


The foundations, the wall, the gates and the streets of the city are made exclusively of precious stones: pure gold, jasper, sapphire, emerald, topaz, pearl, etc.

  • Revelation 21:12-14 "The city had a great and high wall with twelve gates inscribed with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel, and twelve angels at the gates. There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south, and three on the west. The wall of the city had twelve foundations bearing the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb"

  • Revelation 21:18-20 " The wall was made of jasper, and the city itself of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were adorned with every kind of precious stone: The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald he fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst."

  • Revelation 21:21 "And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, with each gate consisting of a single pearl. The main street of the city was pure gold, as clear as glass."

 

The 1st book of the prophet Ezra was partially canonized, the 2nd book was removed from the biblical canon and the 3rd book was not even included. The second book reveals in great detail the condition of the soul of the righteous immediately after death.

 

2 Esdras 7: 88-99

88  Now this is the order of those who have kept the ways of the Most High YAHWEH, when they shall be separated from their corruptible body.

89  During the time that they decayed in it, they laboriously served the Most High, and withstood danger every hour, that they might keep the Torah of the Torah-giver perfectly.

90  Therefore this is the teaching concerning them:

91  First of all, they shall see with great joy the splendor of HIM who receives them, for they shall have rest in seven orders.

92  The first order, because they have striven with great effort to overcome evil which was formed with them, that it might not lead them astray from life into death.

93  The second order, because they see the perplexity in which the souls of the sinners wander, and the punishment that waits them.

94  The third order, they see the witness which HE who formed them bears concerning them, that while they were alive they kept the Torah which was given them in trust.

95  The fourth order, they understand the rest which they now enjoy, being gathered into their chambers and guarded by angels in profound quiet, and the splendor which awaits them in the last day.

96  The fifth order, they rejoice that they have now escaped what is mortal, and shall inherit what is to come; and besides they see the straits and the fullness of toil from which they have been delivered, and the spacious liberty which they are to receive and enjoy in immortality.

97  The sixth order, when it is shown to them how their face is to shine like the sun, and how they are to be made like the light of the stars, being incorruptible from then on.

98  The seventh order, which is greater than all that have been mentioned, because they shall rejoice with boldness, and shall be confident without confusion, and shall be glad without fear, for they hasten to behold the face of HIM whom they served in life and from whom they are to receive their reward when magnified.

99  This is the order of the souls of the righteous, as henceforth is announced, and the aforesaid are the ways of torment which those who would not give heed shall suffer hereafter."

  • 1 Corinthians 2:9 "as it is written: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him."

 

There will be no longer any need to buy or sell because it's a place of mental freedom. YAHWEH is free, and because we too are called to freedom all those things that have been keeping us in bondage: capitalism, slavery, oppression, servitude, etc... will no longer exist.

  • Isaiah 65:21-22 "They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. No longer will they build houses for others to inhabit, nor plant for others to eat. For as is the lifetime of a tree, so will be the days of My people, and My chosen ones will fully enjoy the work of their hands"

 

The glory of the Lord reigns over the whole city. In other words, the Works of Darkness will not be found in it, for nothing will be hidden, nothing will be done in secret, everything will be made manifest, plain, obvious and transparent.

  • Revelation 21:23-25 "And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, because the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its lamp. By its light the nations will walk, and into it the kings of the earth will bring their glory. Its gates will never be shut at the end of the day, because there will be no night there."

  • Revelation 22:5 "There will be no more night in the city, and they will have no need for the light of a lamp or of the sun. For the Lord God will shine on them, and they will reign forever and ever."

 

Sickness and death will have no effect on the new imperishable bodies of those redeemed in the Lord.

  • 1 Corinthians 15:54 "When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come to pass: “Death has been swallowed up in victory."

  • Revelation 2:7 "Let him that has an ear hear what the Spirit says to the churches: To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God."

  • Revelation 22:2 "Down the middle of the main street of the city. On either side of the river stood a tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit and yielding a fresh crop for each month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations."

 

There will be neither babies nor old people for all will be made eternally young like YESHUA.

  • Isaiah 65:20 "There shall be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man that has not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed."

  • Job 33:23-26 "“But if an angel from heaven appears— a special messenger to intercede for a person and declare that he is upright — he will be gracious and say, ‘Rescue him from the grave, for I have found a ransom for his life.’ Then his body will become as healthy as a child’s, firm and youthful again. When he prays to God, he will be accepted. And God will receive him with joy and restore him to good standing."

 

Ferocious beasts will be made harmless because there won't be anything that causes fear, terror, or trembling.

  • Isaiah 65:25 "The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but the food of the serpent will be dust. They will neither harm nor destroy on all My holy mountain,” says the LORD."

 

There will be plenty of joy and He will eliminate sorrow, tears and sadness. 

  • Isaiah 25:6 "On this mountain the LORD of Hosts will prepare a banquet for all the peoples, a feast of aged wine, of choice meat, of finely aged wine."

  • Isaiah 35:10 "So the redeemed of the LORD will return and enter Zion with singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee."

  • Isaiah 65:18 "But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create; for I will create Jerusalem to be a joy and its people to be a delight."

 

The Scriptures also indicate that those who will enter the Kingdom of Heaven will not feel any regret, bitterness or sorrow for their loved ones, friends and relatives who will go down to Sheol, for YAHWEH will eternally erase their memory from the minds of His redeemed.

  • Isaiah 65:17 "For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind."

  • Revelation 21:4 "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,’ and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away."

  • Psalms 88:5-6 "I am forsaken among the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom You remember no more, who are cut off from Your care. You have laid me in the lowest Pit, in the darkest of the depths."

 

On the other hand, those who will go to Sheol or Gehenna will not lose their memory.

  • Luke 16:23 "In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham from afar, with Lazarus by his side."

 

Life is made of choices...

 

May the Holy Spirit guide you in the understanding of this message.
