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.

Phillip Goodman on What Happens When a Christian Dies at Mid-America Prophecy Conference in Tulsa

Phillip Goodman experienced the loss of a son recently and takes a look at what really happens when a Christian dies or departs.  Ponder Jesus words to the thief on the cross.

Departure

Matthew 22: 31-32

John 11: 26

Reservations

Your name is recorded in heaven Luke 10:20

Your citizenship is in heaven

Your name recorded before the foundation of the earth

My Father’s house John 14  (many dwelling places)

I go to prepare a place and I will come again and receive you unto myself

Body-Soul Separation 

This is the physical death and is a temporary not a permanent situation!

Luke 23:43  Today you shall be with Me in Paradise

Living water / never thirst

John 5:24 passed out of death into life (to thief)

Never see death but you will see a separation of the soul from the body.

Spirit returns to God; dust/body returns to earth.

If anyone keeps my Word; he shall never see death John 6:40 5:24 8:51 11:25-26

“Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death” John 8:51

II Corinthians 5:1

Carried Away by Angels

The Person in the Soul  (you don’t have a soul — you are a soul and you have a body!)

Reunion (a great reunion with those who have gone on before us)

the kingdom of heaven Matthew 8:11  note: heaven elsewhere now but ultimately will be new heaven and new earth . . .

PART II

Recognize

Who are you? Family Reunion in Heaven

1 Samuel 8:7  (know and from God’s perspective)

Hebrews 12: 22-24 (we will recognize all of the inhabitants of Heaven)

God the Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, old testament saints, new testament believers, tribulation saints, angels

Remembrance

Rest (from sin and death, and all it’s effects — disease, mourning, pain tears, etc)

Thomas Sharp on War of the Ages at the Mid-America Prophecy Conference in Tulsa

Thomas Sharp on Revelation 12 on the war in heaven.  See also Matthew 24 where Jesus talks about this and great deception surrounding the events as they unfold. Some discussion on timing of the Rapture.

Genesis 3 also a reference.

Satan also called the shining one, the deceiver, the whisperer, the enchanter.  In Revelation 12 we see the dragon was cast out of heaven and out into the earth.  His angels were cast out with him.

King of Tyrus motivated by the wickedness of the evil one.

The battle of the ages is continuing now on earth going on since the beginning of time and will increase in intensity at the end of the age.  We need to understand the battle to know how to properly engage.

Evolution humanizes God and deifies man; the war of the ages continues!

Dr. Henry M. Morris said:

The denial of God — rejecting the reality of supernatural creation and the Creator’s sovereign rule of the world — has always been the root cause of every human problem.  This evolutionary, humanistic, pantheistic . . .

In The Long War Against God: The History and Impact of the Creation/Evolution Conflict (1989) Morris wrote that “the denial of God – rejecting the reality of supernatural creation and the creator’s sovereign rule of the world – has always been the root cause of every human problem.”[15] Morris was criticized by Randy Moore, of University of Minnesota, for writing in the book that “evolutionism” is satanic and responsible for racism, abortion, and a decline in morality.[16]

Motive for Lucifer’s rebellion:

1)  To overthrow the absolute authority accrued to God as the result of His creatorship and direct His worship to another

2) To deconstruct the authority of the word of God

3) To redirect worship belonging to God to himself

Can this sinister and evil motive be properly called Evolutionism?  Yes it can!

God’s Word

Our Hope

Our Power

Our Foundation

If Jesus was not the redeemer who died for our sins and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing! 

The Origin of the Present War in Space and Time Genesis 3: 14-15
