It’s easy for people to become so fixated on the temporal that they lose sight of the eternal.
The Apostle Paul wrote “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9)
What are these things and what benefit is involved in understanding them? The answer was provided on this edition of Crosstalk by Dr. Ed Hindson. Dr. Hindson is the founding Dean of the School of Divinity and Distinguished Professor of Religion at Liberty University. He’s the speaker on The King is Coming broadcast. For decades he’s been an active conference speaker and has served as the editor of five major Study Bibles. He is the author, co-author or general editor of over 40 books, many on the topic of Bible prophecy. Today we’re discussing his latest release: Future Glory: Living in the Hope of the Rapture, Heaven, and Eternity.
Dr. Hindson explained to listeners that regardless of your age, there are 7 prophetic promises that God gives to every believer. So if you’re a believer, these things are in your future! Discussion points included:
- The rapture, when the dead in Christ are raised and the living are caught up.
- The difference between the first, second and third heaven.
- Believers taken to the Father’s house to the Judgment Seat of Christ. What will we do with these rewards?
- The Marriage Supper of the Lamb. (Revelation 19) When does this occur?
- Believers returning with Jesus in his triumphal return. Where will that return take place?
- Believers reigning with Christ on earth during his millennial kingdom. Who will be evangelizing? Who will be evangelized?
- The new heavens and the new earth (The destruction of the old and the creation of the new).
