Given the substantial evidence of Scripture to the contrary, the burden of proof is on those who argue people in heaven are unconcerned with and unaware of what is happening on earth. Does Scripture really teach this? Where? Or is the belief that those in heaven are unaware of what happens on earth merely an assumption, one that over decades or centuries has been elevated by...

Scripture: Revelation 14:10-10, Luke 16:23-26, Matthew 23:37-39, Revelation 21:1-4, Jeremiah 31:34-34
The Bible tells us in Hebrews 9:27 that "man is destined to die once and after that the judgment." We will all stand before the Lord. The the unbeliever, it will be a long, draining reminder of a life filled with poor choices, but for the Christian, Christ will plead your case on your behalf. When John got a glimpse of heaven in Revelation 4, he saw that God was on His throne...

Scripture: Revelation 21 - 22, 2 Corinthians 5:17-20, Ephesians 4:21-24
JesusNext is a series on the book of Revelation. John's apocalyptic vision is not too mysterious to understand. Jesus is now glorious King instead of humble Savior.
Scripture: Revelation 1 - 22
The earth is broken. Relationships are dysfunctional, cultures are oppressed, the world is at war and God is separated from man. In spite of this, the Bible promises the redemption of mankind and restoration of His creation-a new heaven and earth.
Scripture: Revelation 21 - 22, Romans 8:15-25
God interacts with us through His Word. He does not catalog practical advice like a technical manual, but instead teaches us of His love and interactions with mankind through a powerful narrative. As we read His Story, we understand Him more and are transformed by who He is and how He loves and redeems us.

Topic: The Gospel
In Haggai 2, the Israelites begin to re-build the Temple after the foundation had lain desolate for fifteen years. God's people start to repent and obey God, but their circumstances didn't get any better for them. God says, "work, for I am with you." When you follow God, what do you get? The greatest gift of all, God Himself.

Scripture: Haggai 2, Revelation 21:2-4
Heaven is the place where God will bring good from bad. The greatest stories have powerful beginnings and triumphant endings. In the middle, things go wrong. Jesus is the God-Man who will bring good from evil and redeem us to be heirs and rule over God's renewed creation.

Scripture: Revelation 21 - 22, Isaiah 55, Daniel 7, Job 19, Romans 8:16-19
God's perfect world is broken because of man's sin. Relationships are dysfunctional, cultures are oppressed, God is no longer in constant communion with man. God promises redemption and restoration through Jesus Christ. Through Him, we who believe will enjoy a new heaven and a new earth.

Scripture: Genesis 2 - 3, Romans 8:15-29, Acts 3:21, Revelation 22:3, Revelation 21:1-7
God has the power to fix the world, and He does care about the suffering. He is working out an eternal plan to redeem and restore it all. Genesis describes how sin entered the world and corrupted it. Revelation describes how God will reestablish it all back. Over and over the Bible links two things which we would usually not link together—“hurts” and “hallelujahs”.
