Sermon notes:

Isaiah 11:6-7

Heaven is already filled with the knowledge of the Lord.  It is the Earth that will be filled.

 

Isaiah 2:2

This is on Earth not in Heaven; the goal—the establishment of God’s plan

 

Acts 1:7-9

He gives His Holy Spirit to those who obey Him (it is not enough to just believe; we must obey)

 

Mainstream Christianity teaches that we are going to heaven when we die despite the fact that this is not what the Bible says.

 

John 3:10

Jesus Himself said the no man has ascended up to Heaven except Him! Not Noah, Solomon, Sarah, King David, none.

 

Acts 2:25-29

David is not in heaven (according to Peter)

 

Conditions in the Grave…

Psalm 6:5

Ecclesiastes 9:5?

1 Thess 4:13

1 Cor. 15:42-43

 

The meeting of Christ in the air at his coming is an announcement.  An announcement that there is a new government taking over, a new kingdom.

 

Obedience does earn you something.  It earns you a relationship with God. God say those who love Him keep His commandments.  Those who say they love Him and don’t obey him are liars.
