  • Where Do People Go When They Die? - September 16, 2018

  • Will There Be Heaven on Earth? - September 23, 2018

    In the Bible, we read about a NEW heaven and a NEW earth.  Have you ever wondered about that? What does that mean?  What does it mean that the scripture talks about the earth being destroyed at the end of time?  Is this destruction permanent or will there be a re-creation of the earth?  And will there really be heaven on earth?

  • What Will We Do in Heaven? - September 30, 2018

    Have you ever thought about what we will do in heaven?  In many books, TV shows and movies, heaven is portrayed as a boring place where people will just sit around strumming a harp and polishing the streets of gold.  Or, we will be in a perpetual worship service bored and wishing it would soon end.

  • Will our Bodies Get the Ultimate Make-over? - October 7, 2018

    Do you love your body?  Most people wish they could change some things about their body.  They would like to be thinner, or taller, or have a better complexion, or have no disabilities, or have less aches and pains, or live longer.

    The Apostle Paul talked about an ultimate make-over that will one day occur for all believers when we get to heaven.  Our bodies will not be like they are now.  They will be transformed from natural bodies to spiritual bodies.

  • What is the 1000-year reign with Christ all About? - October 14, 2018

    Chronologically, when we talk about heaven, there are a sequence of events that will take place at the end of time.  They are: 1) The Rapture of the Church, 2) The Great Tribulation, 3) The Battle of Armageddon, 4) The 2nd Coming of Christ, 5) The Millennial Kingdom, 6) The Great White Throne of Judgement, and 7) The creation of a new heaven and new earth.

    The Bible verses that talk the most about this event are found in the book of Revelation.  In exile on the island of Patmos, God gave the Apostle John a vision of this time.  The millennium will be a time like nothing we've ever experienced.

  • What about the New Jerusalem, the Heavenly City? - October 21, 2018

    Do you prefer the country or the city?  Probably most of us living here in Nevada County prefer the country better or we wouldn't be living here, right?  But there is something intriguing about cities.

    The Bible talks about a city in heaven that all believers will live in one day.  It's called the New Jerusalem.  As we look into the book of Revelation, we learn a lot about this city.

  • What will Worship in Heaven be Like? - October 28, 2018

    God has created us as worshippers.  Built into every human being is the propensity to worship.  We were originally created to worship God.  In the Garden of Eden, God placed Adam and Eve there in their perfect home to enjoy His creation and to worship Him.  Before the fall of man and sin came into the world, Adam and Eve knew nothing but perfect worship.

    But with the fall of man came a distortion of worship.  When we get to heaven, all the original plans of God will be restored.  We will get back to worshipping God like we were intended to do.  The worship scene we see portrayed in our text gives us a taste of what will happen in heaven.

  • Can We be Sure we will go to Heaven? - November 4, 2018

    When people die, it is assumed by a majority of people in this country that they will go to heaven. Nearly everyone wants to go to heaven.  For every American who believes he's going to Hell, there are 120 who believe they're going to Heaven.  But what are the 120 basing their belief on?

    The Bible is very clear that the gate is narrow that leads to eternal life and broad that leads to hell but God reveals His plan for eternal life.

  • What Will our Relationships be Like in Heaven? - November 11, 2018

    Relationships are such a huge part of our lives.  We all want family and friends to love and to spend time with.  God has created us to be in relationship with one another.  So do relationships end just because our time on this earth has ended?  What will our relationships be like in Heaven?

    The Bible shows us much about heavenly relationships.  Our relationships will be so much deeper and fuller than they are on earth but...
