Thinking about heaven?
In fact, from creation in Genesis to the new creation in Revelation (cf. Isaiah 66), the Bible seems to indicate that humanity’s home is earth, not heaven (Ps. 115:16; Ecc. 5:2). Correspondingly, the believer’s eternal state adn living hope are not dwelling immaterially in heaven but on earth–with agriculture, commerce, food, relationships, and the immediate presence of the Lord as it was in the very beginning (cf. Gen. 3: 8; Rev. 11:15). Therefore, our hope is a regenerated, recreated, glorious, and eternal new creation as Revelation 21-22 envision. So, if you are considering the subject of heaven, the afterlife, or the believer’s eternal state, Blake’s list is a great reference.
