David Reagan on Thoughts on Heaven at Mid-America Prophecy Conference in Tulsa

Thoughts on Heaven by David Reagan of The LambLion Ministries

II Corinthians 12: 2-4

Heaven is where God resides

eternal heavenly abode – new heaven and new earth

Revelation 21: 1-7

dwelling place of God is among men

refreshing the creation (this earth refreshed and perfected)

destroyed by fire and by water = fundamental change in nature

Dealing with a Tangible Heaven

Alpha and Omega

Plato taught of a bodiless eternity — the Gnostic Bible (heresy)

The Torah – Creation originally perfect and will be redeemed (corrupted by sin)

The New Jerusalem  — John 14:2-3

John’s Description in Revelation 21: 2-9

Dr. Henry Morris – The Revelation Record — could it hold 20 billion people

Activities in Heaven:

We shall serve God — Revelation 22:3

John 21:25

Growth / study / talents continue

events I’d like to see — dividing of the Red Sea, fall of the walls of Jericho, space travel

Our heavenly bodies – at death a temporary intermediate body

Resurrection – receive glorified bodies

When Jesus returns brings our spirits with him / resurrects our bodies  — I Cor 15: 42-44

Glorified Body:

1) imperishable

2) glorious

3) powerful

4) spiritual

5) tangible – recognizable (immune to aging / disease / infirmity)  Isaiah 35: 5-6

Philippians 3: 20-21 description of glorified body

different dimension to our bodies — he could eat

A mystery concerning heaven

Revelation 22:2  the leaves of the tree of life will be used for the healing of the nations

Who are these people — millenial redeemed?

Reign with the Lord forever

Questions about heaven:

Will our pets be in heaven?

David Reagan on End Time Prophecies of Jesus at Mid-America Prophecy Conference in Tulsa

David Reagan opened with a look at his church sign collection through the years – unbelievable and funny too!  This session was on “End Time Prophecies of Jesus primarily from Matthew 24 but also Matthew 11: 20-23 and three cities gone today (Capernaum, Bethsaida, and Chorazin)

Signs:

1)  the sign of cults (false Christs and false prophets)

wolves in sheeps clothing gnostics and Judiasers

2) the sign of world politics (wars and rumors of wars)

violence between nations and within nations

3) natural disasters (famines and earthquakes and famines and plagues and signs from heaven – roaring of the sea or tsunamis)

THESE THINGS ARE THE BEGINNINGS OF BIRTH PANGS — increase in frequency and intensity

4) Christian persecution (hindu and muslim areas especially)

Nigeria a Christian was recently elected and violence has erupted

5) Apostasy in the church

6) The breakdown of society

just as it was in the days of Noah (Matthew 24: 37) characterized by immorality and violence

Hollywood influence — moral polluter of planet earth

7) Preaching of the gospel – will be preached in the whole world (translations of the Bible / modern technology) — The Jesus Movie!

Jesus is returning soon.  We are living on borrowed time.  He is either your blessed hope or your holy terror.  Be Ready!  Keep looking up~

You are either under the grace of God or the wrath of God.

John 3: 36

He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.
