"Theology 101: If you believe the ultimate hope of the Christian faith is dying and going to heaven forever, you may have stopped reading the Bible and accidentally picked up a false gnostic gospel. Christian hope is in resurrection and eternal life in the renewed creation." - Michael J. Svigel
"If we imagine a renewed, amplified Eden, combined with a restored, glorified Kingdom of David, we’re beginning to grasp how the Bible envisions the future, after Jesus returns." - Joel Richardson
"Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven."
"Truly I tell you [the twelve], at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
"Heaven must receive Him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as He promised long ago through His holy prophets".
In the last days the mountain of the house of the LORD
will be established as the chief of the mountains;
it will be raised above the hills,
and all nations will stream to it.
And many peoples will come and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us His ways
so that we may walk in His paths.”
For the law will go forth from Zion,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Then He will judge between the nations
and arbitrate for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will no longer take up the sword against nation,
nor train anymore for war.
