Presumptuous means “overstepping bounds, taking liberties, going beyond what is right and proper because of an excess of self-confidence or arrogance, and failing to observe the limits of what is permitted or appropriate.”
Our WORDS, our ACTIONS and our HEART (thoughts and feelings) need to be in sync with God’s will for us.
Wayne Grudem: “Christians often talk about living with God ‘in heaven’ forever. But in fact the biblical teaching is richer than that: it tells us that there will be new heavens and a new earth an entirely renewed creation – and we will live with God THERE… There will also be a new kind of unification of heaven and earth… There will be a joining of heaven and earth in this new creation.”
The new Jerusalem will be at the center of the future Heaven.
The new city will be a city.
The new city will be a physical place.
The new city will be beautiful.
The new city will be massive.
The new city will be perfect.
The new city will be radiant.
The new city is where God dwells among us.
The new earth will be MUCH LIKE this earth, but it will be FAR BETTER than this earth.
2 Peter 3:13
The new Earth is waiting on us.
The new Earth is the New Heaven. (They are one and the same.)
Jesus is the one who makes this possible.
Revelation 5:1-5, 9-13
1 Corinthians 15 (
Jesus’ resurrection is a model for ours.
Our new body will be physical in nature.
Our new body will be familiar and recognizable.
Our new body will be immortal.
Our new body will be perfect for us.
We will finally be comfortable in our own skin.
