The Unbelievably Amazing Destiny Of The Church - Jack Kelly

How many of you have ever taken a vacation?  If so you probably know that the lead up and anticipation to the trip is half the fun.  For our honeymoon, I remember much time looking at pictures of our resort, imagining the fun we would have in the ocean and at the pool!  With that in mind, I found the following article to be fascinating and encouraging.  While many of us are focused on the Rev12 Sign which could signal the end of our time on earth, I am sure most of us cannot help but think about the destination which could come next:  Our future home in Heaven! 

In this article Jack Kelly gives us a glimpse of what could be soon to come for those of us who make up this special group of people called The Church...  a beautiful reality that could be CLOSER and more AMAZING than most Christians even dare to imagine!  Here is an excerpt and a link:
Paul said we should fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, because what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal (2 Cor. 4:18). To me that means we should pay more attention to our next life than we do to this one. After all we’re going to spend a whole lot more time there. The problem is, most Christians know so little about our next life that even if they wanted to focus on it they couldn’t tell where to begin. Therefore, I invite you to spend the next few minutes thinking about something that will have eternal significance to you; the unbelievably amazing destiny of the Church.


  1. Good one, we need to be thinking about the things that will be in heaven.

  2. Often enough it makes me very sad how true children of God wouldn't recognize how God sees them as a treasure in the field and goodly pearls (Matthew 13,44-46) and how much He has blessed the church (and ONLY!!! the church, from ALL dispensations during history of mankind!) with every possible blessing (Ephesians 1,3) and when I see how they behave, think and talk instead... It makes indeed much more sense to focus on future tasks and duties in the 1,000 year timespan of peace kingdom and eternal (!!) state of reign with Christ than still investing energy and money in earthly things of today or living like there was no reign with Christ for them at all.

  3. Some time ago I read the book "Heaven" by Randy Alcorn. In fact what he describes is not Heaven but the 1,000 years of Christs peace kingdom but without mentioning it at all. He did just twist it with Heaven in his own imagination and (poor?) understanding of scripture. But if you read it to get an understanding of the 1,000 years lying just ahead of us now (!!) its not too bad written and quite encouraging.

    Another good read into this topic is "Eternity" by Joseph M. Stowell. Not that much going into details like Alcorn but providing with a very good insight into the core meaning of Colossians 3,1-4 (right below here on Brads website!). ;-) It really pays off to full your kinds and hearts more with a heavenly oriented mindset.

    MARANATHA stay blessed!

    1. I have read that book too (well most of it anyways).... I agree it is fun to read so much detail about our future home. I have a hunch it will be even better than he described! Maybe we will soon find out!

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
