THIS BEAUTIFUL GREEN GLOBE IS WHAT OUR PLANET EARTH WILL LOOK LIKE IN JUST OVER 1,000 YEARS FROM NOW! It is so changed, so different from the World that we live in today, that it will be known then as the “New Earth!”

ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED ABOUT THIS NEW EARTH is that the great land masses known as continents cannot be seen!–This is because the oceans & seas that surround & define their shores & coasts have been removed! Today’s seas cover over 70% of the Earth’s surface, but in that day, they shall be no more, & all nations will be joined together into one great united Continent!

IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY, YOU’LL ALSO NOTICE THAT THERE ARE NO GREAT MOUNTAIN RANGES on this New Earth! All of the steep uninhabitable mountains are gone! Today, the mountains, high plateaus & valleys in-between make up 17% of the Earth’s surface.–But on the New Earth, the entire surface will be leveled except for the smooth & gently rolling hills!

THE GREAT ARID & BARREN DESERT AREAS THAT NOW MAKE UP ONE-THIRD OF THE EARTH’S LAND MASS WILL ALSO BE NO MORE! All such desolate places will be fertile, well-watered fields, forests, farms & gardens! The entire Earth will be beautifully green & growing! The dry & scorching heat of today’s deserts will be replaced by a lovely, balmy, temperate climate, ideal for man’s comfort & the growth of his crops!–Even the wastelands of today’s cold & frozen Polar regions will be warm & sunny, fertile & fruitful!

THESE DRAMATIC CHANGES IN OUR EARTH’S SURFACE WILL CREATE OVER FIVE TIMES AS MUCH HABITABLE LAND for the billions of people who will be living on it! The entire Earth will be a virtual Paradise of beautiful rolling landscape, fields & forests, lakes & streams, completely free from any of man’s filthy cities, industries, chemical plants, weapons or pollution!

ALL OF CREATION WILL HAVE UNDERGONE A REMARKABLE TRANSFORMATION! The so-called “natural disasters” that plague the World’s people today will occur no more! Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, violent storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, etc. will be things of the past!

THE EARTH WILL NO LONGER BRING FORTH THORNS, thistles, weeds or poisonous plants!–But fruits, vegetables & grains will grow easily & abundantly! All formerly wild & dangerous beasts such as lions, tigers, bears & wolves will be docile & tame–the friends of man & pets of his children! All bothersome mosquitoes, flies & other insect pests, spiders, scorpions, infectious worms & parasites will be completely eliminated!

Heavenly City

THAT GIGANTIC GLOWING GOLDEN PYRAMID STANDING ON THE NEW EARTH is the largest, most amazing structure that the World has ever seen! Composed of a now-unknown-to-man crystal-gold material, the entire structure radiates with a beautiful warm glow that can be seen for thousands of miles by the inhabitants of the New Earth!

THIS PYRAMIDICAL WONDER REACHES 1,500 MILES, OR 2,400 KILOMETERS HIGH INTO SPACE! That is 275 times higher than the present Earth’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest! Its square base is 1,500 miles long by 1,500 miles wide, covering a total area of 2-1/4 million square miles, or 5,760,000 square kilometers! Within this beautiful golden Super-Structure will live the powerful rulers of the New Earth!–In fact, it is the great King of this incredible City of gold that brought about the miraculous changes on the Earth!

FOR THIS GREAT PYRAMID-CITY & ITS INHABITANTS ARE NOT OF EARTHLY ORIGIN, but are from a far more advanced & powerful Kingdom than the kingdom of Men!–For this City is the Capital of the King of Kings & Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, Creator & Master of the entire Universe!–And this marvelous 1,500-mile-high Pyramid is His Heavenly Space City, which is already built & is floating through distant Space on its way to our planet right now!

THE APOSTLE JOHN WAS GIVEN A LOOK AT THIS WONDERFUL NEW EARTH & HEAVENLY CITY almost 2,000 years ago when God lifted him up in the Spirit & revealed to him the Future!–In the Bible’s Book of Revelation, he wrote:

New Earth

“AND I SAW A NEW EARTH, FOR THE FIRST EARTH WAS PASSED AWAY; & THERE WAS NO MORE SEA! And I, John, saw the Heavenly City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God, out of Space!–And I heard a great voice saying, ‘Behold, the City of God is with men, & He will dwell with them!'” (Rev.21:1-3) The God Who created this wonderful Earth & the beautiful Universe in which we live has created a real & wonderful Place for all of His children to live with Him forever!–His crystal-gold Heavenly City which we’ve drawn precisely to scale according to the detailed measurements & descriptions of it given in the Bible! (Rev.21 & 22)

BUT JUST BEFORE THIS GREAT SPACE CITY LANDS, God is going to completely purge & purify the entire surface of the Earth with a great flood of fire!–“In which the atmosphere shall pass away with a great noise, & the elements shall melt with fervent heat, & the surface of the Earth shall be burned up!” (2Pet.3:10)

“EVERY VALLEY SHALL BE EXALTED, & EVERY MOUNTAIN SHALL BE MADE LOW; & the crooked shall be made straight, & the rough places plain!” (Isa.40:4) The surface of the Earth will be re-created into a beautiful “New Earth”, like the Garden of Eden! “And there shall be no more Curse!” (Rev.22:3)–The Curse that came upon the Earth when Man fell into sin will be completely removed, & all of the cursed & poisonous plants & pests of today shall be no more!–And all of rebellious man’s foul & polluting toxic wastes, chemicals, radioactive debris & garbage will be utterly burned up & gotten rid of once & for all! Thank God!

INSIDE THE WONDERFUL GOLDEN CITY THAT WILL SETTLE DOWN ON THE BEAUTIFUL NEW EARTH’S RECREATED SURFACE, all of God’s saved Saints will live with Him forever! They will all have supernatural, powerful, Heavenly super-bodies which they will receive very soon when Jesus Christ returns to rescue all of those who love & believe in Him from the evil forces which are now taking over the World & will soon be ruling it with their Antichrist One-World Government! (Mt.24:29-31; 1Th.4:16,17; Rev.13; Rev.14)

OUTSIDE THE CITY ON THE BEAUTIFUL NEW EARTH, THERE WILL BE WHOLE NATIONS OF OTHER RESURRECTED PEOPLE whose bodies will probably be a little more like the bodies that we have now. (Rev.21:24-26; 22:2) These folks outside won’t live in the City yet because they didn’t receive God’s Son, Jesus.–Perhaps because they never heard or fully understood the Gospel. But there on the New Earth they will learn to know & love Him at last!

BUT WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO LIVE A NATURAL LIFE OUTSIDE ON THE NEW EARTH when they could live a supernatural life inside the great Heavenly City itself?–Enjoying it & all of its marvels & pleasures in their resurrection super-bodies! To become a resident of God’s Heavenly City, all you have to do is receive God’s Love & Salvation by asking His Son Jesus into your heart!

YOU CAN RECEIVE JESUS RIGHT NOW BY SIMPLY PRAYING THIS LITTLE PRAYER: “Dear Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God & that You died for me. Please forgive me for all of my sins. I now open the door of my heart & I ask You, dear Jesus, to please come in & give me Your free Gift of Eternal Life! Help me to love You & to love others by telling them about You & Your Love.–In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

born anew

 “Science has found that nothing can disappear without a trace. Nature does not know extinction. All it knows is transformation. If God applies the fundamental principle to the most minute and insignificant parts of the universe, doesn’t it make sense to assume that He applies it to the masterpiece of His creation–the human soul? I think it does.”

(Dr. Wernher von Braun)

Death on earth is reunion in heaven


no valley for me

For those who have to repeat the dying words of a noted infidel: “I’m taking a leap in the dark.”
Now for the contrast. A lad lay dying. Said his mother tenderly: “Is Jesus with you in the dark valley?”
“Dark valley!” he whispered, “it’s not dark, it’s getting brighter and brighter, Mother. Oh,” he murmured, “it’s so bright now, that I have to shut my eyes!”
And so he passed away to be with Jesus, who said, “He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”



It’s a lot easier to die than it is to live in case you don’t know it, if you’re a Christian! Death is the easy way out! That’s your graduation, your work is done & the Lord has released you & relieved you of your responsibility & you’ve gone home to your reward. But there’s often this question that comes up as you face death, “I wonder have I done my best for Jesus?”


talking about heaven

It certainly seems like a good idea to talk about Heaven, meditate about Heaven and read about Heaven, because, after all, that’s where we’re going to spend eternity. It’s an important place — our eternal home. So it’s only natural to want to know what it’s like and what we’re going to be like when we get there.
–David Brandt Berg



Cartoonist Arthur Brisbane once pictured a crowd of grieving caterpillars carrying the corpse of a cocoon to its final resting place. The poor, distressed caterpillars, clad in black raiment, were weeping, and all the while the beautiful butterfly fluttered happily above the muck and the mire of Earth, forever freed from its earthly shell.
Needless to say, Brisbane had the average funeral in mind and sought to convey the idea that when our loved ones pass, it is foolish to remember only the cocoon and concentrate our attention on the remains, while forgetting the bright butterfly.

Your loved ones are there waiting for you. And there is a place prepared for you.
Your loved ones are there waiting for you


THE HEAVENLY CITY IS REAL!–IT’S NOT JUST A FANCY DREAMLAND WAY OFF IN OUTER SPACE SOMEWHERE, but an even more amazing Dream City that’s going to come down from God, out of space, to a beautiful renewed Earth! And God is going to come down and live with us, and we with Him, in that Heavenly City! (Rev.21:1-3)

THE LORD LIFTED SOME OF HIS PROPHETS UP IN THE SPIRIT and TOOK THEM ON A GUIDED TOUR, A SPIRIT TRIP, OF THIS GREAT  CITY, and they wrote in the Bible and told us all about its size, shape, colors and even the materials that it’s made of!

LET’S READ WHAT ST. JOHN THE APOSTLE SAID ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL PLACE: “And He carried me away in the spirit and showed me that great City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of the Heavens. And its light was like a precious stone, even like a diamond, clear as crystal! And the City was pure gold that is clear as glass!” (Rev.21:2,10,11,18)

HE GOES ON TO SAY THAT THE BOTTOM OF THE HEAVENLY CITY FROM SPACE IS A PERFECT SQUARE, 1500 MILES LONG and 1500 MILES WIDE! Its peak is equal to its length and width, reaching 1500 miles high into the sky! Just think how beautiful it will be!–A gigantic, mountain-shaped, pyramid-shaped City of clear crystal gold, standing on the Earth 275 times taller than the World’s tallest mountain, Mt. Everest!–How Heavenly! (Rev.21:16)

“AND IT HAD A WALL GREAT and HIGH, and TWELVE GATES, and AT THE GATES TWELVE ANGELS.” (Rev.21:12)–There was an angel guarding each gate! The fact that the Heavenly City has a big tall wall and gates guarded by angels shows that there will be people outside the City who will not yet be able to enter in or enjoy its wonders–The as yet unsaved

“AND THERE WERE NAMES WRITTEN ON THE GATES, which are the names of the Twelve Tribes of the Children of Israel. And the wall of the City had twelve foundations”–or twelve levels–“and in them are the names of the Twelve Apostles of the Lamb.” (Rev.21:12-14)

ON EACH OF THE GATES IS A NAME OF ONE OF THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL, which is God’s way of honoring the Jews who were faithful and who have believed in and obeyed the Lord. He also honors the original Twelve Apostles for their great work of starting His Church.–He puts their names on the twelve different layers of the jeweled wall!

  1. JOHN SAYS THAT AN ANGEL MEASURED THE WALL WHILE HE WAS THERE, and IT WAS 216 FEET HIGH! Its twelve 18-foot-high levels are each made of a different kind of precious stone or jewels, like diamonds, rubies, emeralds, etc! (Rev.21:17-20) Because this 1500-mile-long wall runs in a square around the base of the City, its total length is 6,000 miles!–Just imagine, 6,000 miles of gigantic diamonds, 6,000 miles of emeralds, rubies etc.! Man has never seen such beauty!

“AND THE TWELVE GATES WERE TWELVE PEARLS; every gate was one pearl!” (Rev.21:21) Can you imagine the gates for such a City, whose wall is 216 feet high? They would be gigantic!–Pearls such as this World has never seen!

“AND THE NATIONS OF THEM WHICH ARE SAVED SHALL WALK IN THE LIGHT OF IT.” (Rev.21:24)–Inside the great Heavenly City is where all of God’s saved Children will live with Him forever!

“AND THE KINGS OF THE EARTH DO BRING THEIR GLORY and HONOUR INTO IT.” (Rev.21:24) Outside the City, on the renewed Earth, there will be whole nations of people who have been raised from the dead, have stood before God’s Great Judgment Throne and have been allowed by Him to live on the beautiful, remade, Garden-of-Eden-like Earth! (Rev.21:24-26; 22:2)

“AND THE GATES OF THE CITY SHALL NOT BE SHUT AT ALL BY DAY: for there shall be no night there!” (Rev.21:25) This wonderful Heavenly City will be open 24 hours a day!–Its citizens need no sleep!

“AND THERE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO IT ANYONE EXCEPT THEY WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE.” (Rev.21:27) Only the saved, those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, will be allowed to enter through its pearly gates!–How beautiful! How wonderful!–Nothing unclean there!–No dirty city streets, no violence, no crime!–Not Sin City, as most of man’s cities are today, but the Holy City of God!–The pure City, the beautiful City!–Everything just spotless and clean, sinless and beautiful! What a wonderful place!–Heaven on Earth!

THE SAVED WILL FLOW IN and OUT OF THOSE 12 GIGANTIC GATES OF PEARL, entering in to enjoy the wonders and joys of the Heavenly City, and going out with the “leaves from the Trees of Life for the healing of the nations”. (Rev.22:2) They will be helping and healing and teaching those outside about the Lord and His Love and His ways, that they also may learn to know and love the Lord.–So that one day, all the people who are in His Book of Life will finally know and love the Lord and be members of His Kingdom of Love!

WILL YOU BE ABLE TO PASS THROUGH THOSE GATES OF PEARL TO FREELY ENJOY THE HEAVENLY CITY and ITS WONDERS? Are you saved? If you’re not sure, you can be sure by entering God’s Heavenly Kingdom right now in the spirit! All you have to do is receive Jesus Christ, His Son, into your heart. Jesus said, “I am the Door. If any man enter in by Me, He shall be saved.” (Jn.10:9) Jesus saves!

YOU CAN ENTER A WONDERFUL WORLD OF HEAVENLY HAPPINESS, LOVE and PEACE RIGHT NOW JUST BY PRAYING THIS SIMPLE PRAYER: “Lord Jesus, please forgive me for all my sins. I believe that You are the Son of God and that You died for me, and I now open the door of my heart and I ask You, Jesus, to please come in and give me Your free gift of Eternal Life. Help me to love You and to love others by telling them about You and Your Love. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
