Jesus has been hidding on earth for over 2000 years yet men did not know it.
I can’t believe that for over 2000 yrs. Jesus has been living and hiding here on earth with us yet we didn’t know it.
I never really had any reason to think or believe that Jesus has been living some where here, on earth, for over 2000 yrs. Yet we did not know it. Is it possible that he is both in heaven and on earth? Some people can say yes because as a spiritual being he is expected to be everywhere just as spirit are said to be everywhere although most people do not see them.
Jesus said he was going back to his father in heaven. Even his apostles said he sat on the right hand of his father. Jesus also promised to come back for his apostles although none of them lived to see his return however he promised them that where he was going they will be there with him. Many people just took the bible verses the way it was written so many Christians believe that Jesus is in heaven.
We know that there are various theories of heaven, hell, afterlife, soul, and spirit. In fact it seems virtually all spiritual matters are in conflict as there are not generally accepted. Why not, even when those that belief in God teach different things about him? I just happened to listen to an argument between a Jehovah witness and other Christians. They were talking on the meaning of soul. The witness claimed that soul is physical which means it is the part of us we can feel and that the souls dies. While others tried to say that soul is a spiritual entity just like spirit so it is not the same as our body. The argument later changed direction when heaven and paradise came in.
It is known that the Jehovah witness teach that only a limited number of people will go to heaven while others will live in a paradise on earth. Other Christians believe that all righteous people will go to heaven and that the earth will be destroyed in the last day when Jesus returns or what? As the argument went on I listened carefully without contributing to the argument. The witness members had to bring a bible to support their claim about the soul and other teachings. Then somebody then asked, so the paradise that was talked about meant here, on earth? The witness agreed that God promised to make this earth a paradise so that is where others will live. The guy then said if paradise is here on earth it means Jesus is living here on earth. I wondered why he said that and others wondered the same. Then he continued, this is because Jesus told the thief on the cross “today you will be with me in paradise.” People could not help but laugh. However, I then wondered if the Jehovah’s Witness are right that earth is the paradise then it means Jesus has been living and hiding among us for over 2000 years and we never knew it. Then I wondered the part of the earth he may be found. Is he like one of us or does he living in other forms or what?
