The Intermediate State

The Intermediate State from Randy Alcorn on Vimeo.

In October of 2012 Randy spent a weekend at The Cove, The Billy Graham Association's conference center in Asheville, NC. Over the weekend Randy was interviewed by Dr. John Akers on the theme "Four Central Truths of A Biblical Worldview."
John points out that believers get confused, thinking that when they die they will go to the heaven where we will spend eternity with God. However, their is an intermediate state, and intermediate heaven, were we will be with God until He restores all things. John asks Randy to discuss this intermediate state. Randy explains that when we die we do go immediately into the presence of Christ. But this isn't the ultimate heaven. The culmination of God's plan for us will not be reached until the final resurrection. For more information about “Heaven” please visit
