A New Beginning

A New Beginning

When do you think happens, in a timeline,

White Throne Judgment, New Jerusalem, New Heavens, New Earth, Destruction of the Earth with fire

God’s Master Plan of salvation for mankind will then be complete in this Age Then a new age will start.  Then the Spirit Members of God’s Family and physical people can look forward to new heavens and a new earth; and to new and wonderful opportunities in ruling the universe under God our Father and Jesus Christ our elder brother! 

Christ will make salvation available to everyone who ever lived, but never heard or under-stood the truth, in the last great step in God’s plan; the 8th  Great Day, picturing the last judgment period and next age.

The Last Great Day pictures the completion of God’s Master Plan in this Age and the Next Age; the Great White Throne Judgment period after the Millennium.

During the White Throne judgment, is this when the New Heavens and New Earth happen, while all are being judge before Jesus Throne in heaven on the sea of glass.

I am going to speculate when does the New Heavens and New Earth and New Jerusalem comes down to earth.  There are some small hints, a few medium hints, and some direct hints if we believe what the Scriptures really say.

{Judgment on a sea of glass in Heaven where Lord Jesus Throne is, in front of Jesus Throne?}

Revelation 20:12-13 I saw the dead, both unimportant and important, standing in front of the throne, and books were open. Another book was opened—the Book of Life. The dead were judged according to their actions, as recorded in the books.  (13)  The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and all were judged according to their actions.

The New Heavens and a New Earth, what will God do next.

Now a new heaven and a new earth will appear. The new earth will become the headquarters for all future creating projects of the God Family. Let’s glimpse this new project God has promised to begin and continue.

Apostle John wrote

Revelation 21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, because the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared, and the sea was gone.

The first heaven (sky) and earth (fire), the sea was dried up for people {oceans?} 

Revelation 21:2 I also saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband. 

Will the new Jerusalem come down out of heaven to the earth and become the capital of the universe.

Revelation 21:3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 

Revelation 21:4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There won’t be death anymore. There won’t be any grief, crying, or pain, because the first things have disappeared.” 

Revelation 21:5 The one sitting on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new!” He said, “Write this: ‘These words are trustworthy and true.'”

John then describes the New Jerusalem and Jesus plainly told John, “I make All Things New.  Notice, the Father join Jesus Christ on earth with His spirit-composed children?

We know the Father will not live on the earth before the cleansing of the world in fire. With the final battle of Gog / Magog, the earth probably be in bad shape, so it needs to be fixed.  After the earth is purified, the Father will establish His headquarters and throne on earth, in a new and perfectly built Jerusalem

{like the battle with Satan first time, repaired the earth in 6 or days}

Notice the Father will share the new city with His children and future children.  Here are some hints. 

Isaiah 66:22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth that I am about to make will endure before me,” says the LORD, “so will your descendants and your name endure.

Isaiah 66:23 From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the LORD.

Psalms 102:25-28 Of old, You laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands.  (26)  They will perish, but You will endure; Yes, they will all grow old like a garment; Like a cloak You will change them, And they will be changed.  (27)  But You are the same, And Your years will have no end.  (28)  The children of Your servants will continue, and their descendants will be established before You.”

Who is going to live in this new city

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

What will the Holy City of Jerusalem be like.

Revelation 21:9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came to me and said, “Come! I will show you the bride, the wife of the lamb.” 

Revelation 21:10 He carried me away in the Spirit to a large, high mountain and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven.      (We know now that the earth/heaven has been cleansed}

Describes in detail the New Jerusalem, Revelation 21:11-21 (please read)

Revelation 21:22 I saw no temple in it, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple

Jesus referred to His body as a Temple {John 2:21} 

Revelation 21:23 The city doesn’t need any sun or moon to give it light, because the glory of God gave it light, and the lamb was its lamp

Revelation 21:24 The nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory {worship} into it.  

Hint – People outside Jerusalem, their leaders will go there

Revelation 21:25 Its gates will never be shut at the end of the day, because there will be no night there.

Everything that could threaten the city has been defeated

Revelation 21:26 And they {people} shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 

Hint – Glory is praise and worship, nations (people) go into New Jerusalem 

Revelation 21:27 Nothing unclean, or anyone who does anything detestable, and no one who tells lies will ever enter it. Only those whose names are written in the lamb’s Book of Life will enter it.

They will be given the Holy Spirit and will be written into the Book of Life.

Ezekiel 37:1-14 God will bring all Israel and others back to physical live and receive the Holy Spirit.

Ezekiel 37:14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.'” 

Joel 2:28 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.

{The Holy Spirit will be given to ALL People If they have the Holy Spirit, are they not written in the Book of Life}

The Father and the Lamb are its Temple in the New Jerusalem and the Bride of Christ will dwell with them.  Meaning we will be there with them.

Hint – But notice further.  Outside this city, in the magnificent New Earth, will dwell all the Nations that will be saved. 

The Prophecy of Isaiah, time for some educated speculation

Isaiah the prophet describes the incredible scene of the new heavens and the new earth.

He prophesied, in chapter 65, of God creating the new heavens and earth, as something to be rejoiced in forever, that is, for all eternity

But notice what else he says about this stupendous, fantastic time. 

Isaiah quotes God as saying:

New Heavens and New Earth

Isaiah 65:17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.

  • This passage is duel in prophecy, what it will be like during Jesus Kingdom of God during the millennium and in the future, New Jerusalem.
  • But you notice that it does say new heavens and a new earth, only after White Throne Judgment. 

Isaiah 65:18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating, for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight.

Isaiah 65:19 I’ll rejoice over Jerusalem, and take delight in my people; no longer will the sound of weeping be heard in it, nor the cry of distress.

How long will the people period of judgment last, 100 years for all 

Isaiah 65:20 “And there will no longer be in it a young boy who lives only a few days, or an old person who does not live out his days; for one who dies at a hundred years will be thought a mere youth, and one who falls short of a hundred years will be considered accursed.

This verse in Isaiah apparently refers to this judgment period, suggesting that those resurrected and future generation then will live for 100 years, regardless of how old they were when they died. 

They have the Holy Spirit and then changed to Spirit Being. 

More hints. 

Isaiah 65:21 People will build houses and live in them; They’ll plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

Isaiah 65:22 They won’t build for others to inhabit; they won’t plant for others to eat, for like the lifetime of a tree, so will the lifetime of my people be, and my chosen ones will long enjoy the work of their hands.

Isaiah 65:23 They won’t toil in vain nor bear children doomed to misfortune, for they will be offspring blessed by the LORD, they and their descendants with them.   Hint – have children, descendants

After New Jerusalem comes down to the earth, children will be born.  It looks like the Father wants to continue having new members added to the family through new births of children as we enter this new age and beyond.

Isaiah 65:24 Before they call, I will answer, while they are still speaking, I’ll hear.

Isaiah 65:25 “The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox; but as for the serpent–its food will be dust! They won’t harm or destroy on my entire holy mountain,” says the LORD.

Animals will be there too.

Christ will make salvation available to everyone who ever lived, but never heard or under-stood the truth, in the last great step in God’s plan; the 8th  Great Day, picturing the last judgment period. and during the New JerusalemAnimals will be there after the New Jerusalem comes down

Important Notice!  This passage is clearly dual in application. 

It is about the millennium with Jesus is King and Priest in the Kingdom of God and about the fulfillment of past prophecies.

Did you notice, this passage is also about the New Heavens and New Earth and what will happen after it starts.

New Heavens and New Earth will be after the white throne judgment of mankind.

The 8th day is really about New Beginning of the new Age of God’s plan.

Shemini Atzeret very name identifies means a new beginning.  When God creates the new heavens and the new earth during this age, it really is a new beginning.

Remember when Jesus plainly told John, “I make all things new” (Rev.21:5).

Apostle Peter wrote about this awesome time or age.  Hints.

2 Peter 3:10 But the Day of the Lord will come like a thief. On that day the heavens will disappear with a roaring sound, the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done on it will be exposed. 

2 Peter 3:11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, think of the kind of holy and godly people you ought to be

2 Peter 3:12 as you look forward to and hasten the coming of the day of God, when the heavens will be set ablaze and dissolved and the elements will melt with fire

  • Will this happen during the White Throne Judgment?
  • The Major battle with Magog and Gog and the destruction of the earth at the end of millennium.
  • Satan is removed. Is this when the earth is cleansed of all the battle results.
  • Lord Jesus has all physical people in judgment in front of the throne.
  • Will Jesus re-create the earth again in 7 days after fire destroyed it?

2 Peter 3:13 But in keeping with his promise, we are looking forward to new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness is at home.

Revelation 20:11-12 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them.  (12)  And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 

Revelation 20:11-12 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.  (12)  And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

We will have people of different ages and have not built righteous character yet. Happen during the white throne judgement, people will be protected.

Ever wonder how much authority did God intend to give to people

Psalms quotes 

Psalms 8:4-6 what is man that you take notice of him, or the son of man that you pay attention to him?  (5)  You made him a little less than divine, but you crowned him with glory and honor.  (6)  You gave him dominion over the work of your hands, you put all things under his feet: 

The Apostle wrote 

Hebrews 2:6-8 Instead, someone has declared somewhere, “What is man that you should remember him, or the son of man that you should care for him?  (7)  You made him a little lower than the angels, yet you crowned him with glory and honor  (8)  and put everything under his feet.” Now when God put everything under him, he left nothing outside his control. However, at the present time we do not yet see everything put under him.

Question, is it possible that God’s plan of expanding His divine family continue during this age after the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven.  There are some additional hints in the Scriptures that this could be true.

One hint is from Isaiah: 

Isaiah 9:6-7 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  (7)  Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

The increase of His government means it is growing and getting larger in size and numbers.  There is no limit mention, just getting bigger and bigger, even forever.

Genesis 9:12 And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:   hint from Genesis.

God said perpetual {never ending or changing} generations refers to human generations implies human reproduction will go on forever, and not stopping, producing children forever.    Now, new hints

Exodus 20:6  but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. 

Deuteronomy 7:9 “Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.

1 Chronicles 16:15 Remember His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations

Psalms 105:8 He remembers His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations,

1000 generations, really. 4 times mention. The word for generations means ages and generations.  How long is a generation from the Scriptures?

Numbers 14:34 According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection.  {50 years for the Jubilee}

It looks like 40 years is a generation and if we look at 1,000 generation, which would be 40 years times 1,000 generations, would equal 40,000 years.  That is a long time promise by God

We know Adam and Eve was created about 6,000 years ago, or 6,000 years divided by 40 years is around 150 generations. 

Since the time of Adam and Eve, mankind has been on this planet for only about 6,000 years.  The Millennial Sabbath day, which is 1,000 years (Rev.20:4), will be the “final day” of God’s “week” of seven days, picturing the 7,000-year plan of God, which encompasses the time from Adam and Eve till the end of the Millennium.

Just looking at these Scriptures, it seems as if people will be born after the new heavens and new earth is here.  These individuals will be given an opportunity to qualify for salvation and eternal life.  There will be no Satan or demons to influence them in this Way of Life!

But they will have billions of “sons of God,” already in God’s Kingdom, ready to help, instruct, guide, and teach them, at a moment’s notice!  And when they have qualified, they, too, will become spirit beings, sons of God in the ever-expanding KINGDOM OF GOD!

You know what is exciting for you and me about this.  We have been called to be part of the Bride of Jesus and we will be at the beginning to see this from the very beginning.  The Bride are like a tennis ball on top of a large pyramid and individuals will come later in the pyramid. 

The rest of the nations, mankind, including our own children and family members who are not called now, in this age, will become members of the God Kingdom at a later age, when their calling time comes. 

Daniel 6:26 “I hereby decree that in every area of my kingdom men are to fear and tremble before the God of Daniel. For he is the living God, who endures forever. His kingdom is one that will not be destroyed, and his dominion {or empire} continues forever.

Therefore, God Kingdom will always be growing larger and larger
