Anticipating the New Heavens and the New Earth to come at TGC15

Anticipating the New Heavens and the New Earth to come at TGC15

Nanci and I recently returned from The Gospel Coalition’s 2015 National Conference in Orlando. We had a wonderful time at the conference, where we joined 6,000 others from all over the world to focus on Jesus and the New Heavens and New Earth. 

Do We Get a Second Chance after Death?

Do We Get a Second Chance after Death?

In this video, EPM’s Julia Stager talks about whether or not the Bible teaches that we get a second chance to believe in Jesus after death. This five minute video is well worth watching and sharing.

¿Podemos o debemos hablar con nuestros seres queridos en el cielo?

Me gustaría abordar una cuestión que se planteó en un comentario de blog. Me imagino que otros lectores pudieron haber leído la pregunta y pueden estar interesados, ya que me lo han preguntado muchas veces en los últimos años.

La pregunta es, desde un punto de vista bíblico, ¿está bien hablar con nuestros seres queridos que han pasado a estar con Jesús?

What’s the Difference between the Present Heaven and the Future Heaven?

Water skyLife in the present Heaven (which theologians call the “intermediate” Heaven) is “better by far” than living here on Earth under the curse (Phil. 1:23). But it’s not our final destination.

C . S. Lewis, The Romantic Rationalist, and Longing for the New Earth

C. S. Lewis, The Romantic RationalistIn Mere Christianity Lewis lamented that we haven’t been trained to want Heaven: "Our whole education tends to fix our minds on this world. …when the real want for Heaven is present in us, we do not recognize it. Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world."

Will our reception into Heaven be different depending on how we have lived our life on earth?

Question from a reader:

In your book Edge of Eternity, the Christian woman who lived for self rather than for the King, upon entering Charis did not get any private time with the King. Is this the kind of reception the carnal Christian receives in Heaven? Will the King simply demand they appear before Him, kneel while He's talking, and spell out His disappointment with them, saying they could have been and could have done so much more, but all they've done was accept the Gift, so "go ahead and come in"... no welcoming party, no reception, no reward?

Going to the Party

BalloonsImagine someone takes you to a party. You see a few friends there, enjoy a couple of good conversations, a little laughter, and some decent appetizers. The party’s all right, but you keep hoping it will get better. Give it another hour, and maybe it will. Suddenly, your friend says, “I need to take you home.”

Now?

 

Do we remain conscious after death? Or does the Bible teach soul sleep?

At death, the human spirit goes either to Heaven or to Hell. Christ depicted Lazarus and the rich man as conscious in Heaven and in Hell immediately after they died. Jesus told the dying thief on the cross, “Today you will be with me in paradise.”

Why the Reality of the Resurrection Means You Don’t Need a “Bucket List”

Bucket, BeachThe term “bucket list” was popularized by the 2007 movie of that name. It’s an inventory of things people want to do before they “kick the bucket.” The idea is, since our time on earth is limited, if something is important for us to do, we have to do it now, because this is our only chance to do it.

Might Some Animals Talk on the New Earth?

DogMost people who’ve enjoyed the children’s stories of Beatrix Potter, C. S. Lewis, or others who wrote of talking animals have probably never seriously considered the possibility that some animals might actually have talked in Eden or that they might talk on the New Earth.
