Our Heavenly Duty

Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people. – Isaiah 65:17-19.

I hope and believe that the following verses will actually describe the condition of the redeemed during the reign of Christ upon the earth: “There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old. They shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of My people, and Mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, saith the Lord.”

There is to be a literal new creation, but that new creation has commenced already; and I think, therefore, that even now we ought to manifest a part of the joy. If we are called upon to be glad and rejoice in the completion of the work, let us rejoice even in the commencement of it. The Lord Himself will joy and rejoice, and we who are in sympathy with Him are exhorted and even commanded to be glad; let us not be slack in this heavenly duty. ~ C.H. Spurgeon

      • Yes. Ok since it’s the only views why are there views like Mid Post Trib Pre Wrath and Preterism both full and partial when those views don’t fit the Bible. I mean with preterism it says I think that Jesus came back in 70 Ad if I remember but that view came from a priest in the Catholic Church what do you know about preterism and why do Christians hold the view of preterism. Thank you have a blessed day too sister I can’t wait to meet you in heaven after the Pre Trib Rapture.


      • Honestly, Bibleguy317, I’m not all that familar with views other than mid/post- tribs. I think its in how people interpret Scriptures with what they know. Are they studying while praying for the Holy Spirit to teach them or are they looking at these things from an intellectual POV? I dunno. Sometimes we forget to look at things from God’s perspective and from His eternal existance.

        Yes, soon, and very soon, we are going to see the Lord and each other! Hallelujah! \o/
