5 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 6 PrayingPraying

Hi Pete, Interesting thoughts.

Maybe I am misunderstanding your thoughts on this part:

"Are we as the Church to be examples of God’s grace? Taking at face value, that might sound pleasant. But I believe that to be a very humbling statement, on the part of the reader. Considering, I know what all the bad, rotten things I’ve done in my life. Will my life be reviewed for believers of all ages, or for some future peoples that God can point back at and say…”Here is Pete, this is an example of my grace”. I can almost hear the crowds now saying in unison, “That is A LOT of grace!”

(Reviewed for believers of all ages) I am not sure if you are talking about eternity, here. But; if we are already in heaven, or some also in hell, who is going to review this, and why would they need to? We will be perfected with new bodies for eternity. I just can't understand why we would want to visit the past, with all the sin.

I think that those, from the Bible, are written about, to give us an example. That the good and the bad is shown, because they are human, just as we are. Reading about them, helps us, in this world, to not condemn ourselves.  Also to see how the Lord worked in their lives and His plan unfolding.

Just my thoughts.

God Bless, and thanks, Pete.
Shelley

Hi Shelly,

This kinda falls into the 'holy speculation' territory.  I don't think we'll spend eternity reviewing each other's lives, like an old soap opera or something.  But when we go to be with the Lord, we in effect, step out of the boundaries of time.  

Wouldn't you want to go back and see creation as it happens?  Or Noah and the Ark?  David fighting Goliath?

My whole point was, if we are allowed to do that, why couldn't anyone go back and see your great moment of faith, or someone from the 5th century no one's ever heard of.  God could use my life as to the points where I could have did something, or all the places where He worked in my life and I didn't recognize it.

I don't think our lives are off limits to review, or anything. We will at that point, be looking at it from a much, different perspective.  Maybe how angels look at us today.

Something to consider at the very least.

Thanks Pete.

Who knows?  Anything is possible (holy speculation, right? )  I do agree that the whole "time" thing, is not what we know now.  If we aren't constrained by time, maybe we could look at the past; but the future, in eternity, what would that look like?

It sure can boggle one's mind.  I think I popped a vein in my head, there.

God Bless,
Shelley

Great thought-provoking, Pete - anything's possible with the LORD, Amen?

Can someone explain to me what HE means in Isaiah 65:16c and v17?  Is The LORD speaking only to/of Israel here?

Thanks for the help

Interesting one, Pete, I like to ponder on our future as Christians also. It is a good thing to think about, to some degree. Time is an interesting dimension that is difficult for us humans to grasp, knowing that God perceives it all as now. I think we will be examples and witnesses, even teachers’ during the Millennium, to those born during that time on earth. Maybe, even more during the Millennium, than we are here and now. I do believe we will remember everything here that happened in our lives for a time, good and bad. It is and always will be a testimony to our Lord and His all perfect love. The Millennium is that transition and healing period into all eternity. For us humans it started from the fall in the garden, then to our redemption paid in full at the Cross by Jesus' shed Blood. And our future, later beyond into eternity what awaits us. I think it will all become a very distant memory after the new heaven and earth. Who knows for sure but God, but we are going to find out, very soon!

3 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 4 PrayingPraying

Comments: Already this is happening, from our testimonies. We share the times we see God moving mountains in our lives. The hard core truth is every breath is a blessing. We need to keep every thought captive and walk humbly as an example, taking care of the physical then the spiritual needs. God bless!
