Hearts yearn for peace, happiness, and prosperity, but some say NO! It’s just a dream, a fantasy!” Today’s reality is war, crime hunger, sickness, and ageing, but with all of life’s problems there is reason for hope, because God’s Kingdom will bring earthly benefits beyond compare. It will accomplish everything good that God originally purposed for his people to enjoy on earth. Hatreds and prejudice will cease to exist.
That means paradise conditions require that things that cause harm be removed by eliminating wars, crime and hunger. Impossible, some may say, but notice:
“He is making wars to cease to the extremity of the earth. The bow he breaks apart and does cut the spear in pieces; the wagons he burns in the fire.” (Psalm 46:9)
“Too good to be true!” They are not to good to come from the hand of our loving Creator. If someone has said to me: “You believe in something that will probably never happen. There’s no way!”
“Oh, Yeah! My belief is neither blind nor illogical. It’s based on expectation of what my Creator has demonstrated with realities, though not beheld.”
“Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for—the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.’
