Atheist:-D:i'll take it that those are your answers. did you read my part of the so called 'agreement'?
i said "you're bargaining? okay, I'll answer 5 of your questions that you deem important, with Scripture as i think fit."
So, again, What are the 5 questions you deem important?
|Re: Heaven... Pls Describe by AtheistD(m): 11:05am On Dec 28, 2012|
Apologies. I thought you were after more questions.
You can pick any 5 you want.
|Re: Heaven... Pls Describe by Image123(m): 12:13pm On Dec 28, 2012|
Atheist:-D:that's not the 'agreement'. Tell me the five you want me to answer and stop dragging this like you don't really want an answer.

I would like to get an accurate description from every xtian who chooses to respond what heaven will be like.You may not get 'an accurate description' because John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.. Even if i have been to France before for instance, i may not be able to give an accurate description of France or Paris to my friends here in Lagos. One, we all have differing gifts and abilities of descriptions. It's even possible that someone who just saw pictures or watched a film gives a clearer description than one who has lived there for two years. The point here is that ability or inability to describe Heaven is not a proof that Heaven doesn't exist(as is your wish). Two, no one has been to Heaven and come back, except Jesus or God. So to describe Heaven in "an accurate description" as possible, you need to see what God says about it, that is you need the Bible.
1. HOW BIG IS HEAVEN? Will it have oceans, continents, hot and cold terrain? Can I get a tan if I am in hot weather for too long? Can I go skiing and bob sledding?Heaven is bigger than planet earth. The Kingdom of Heaven has the New Earth in it, and the new earth has no sea.
Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
You would have perfect weather in the Kingdom of heaven.
2- WHAT CAN WE DO THERE? Most of what we do is linked to society, with morals playing a big part.You will know all things.
Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
1Co 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
1Co 13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
That's a whole lot of learning to do. You'll be like Jesus in the Kingdom of God, it's not a place for frivolities and irresponsibility. It's a vista beyond your wildest dreams. Put all the discoveries made in cumulative, and many more.
1Co 2:9 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.
The Kingdom of Heaven will operate on God's laws. It will be as it is in Heaven, Psa 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
We will live in Heaven's era which is more developed and better than any era earth has to offer. In Heaven's era, there is no sickness, no death, and life is beautiful for everyone.
Heb 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
Talking about technology, nobody came to earth with mathematics or calculus. All we know, we learnt. Everyone will have same privilege to learn in the Kingdom of Heaven. If Mungo Park was exposed to an iPhone, he'd use it. It's high-folly to assume that your generation is intrinsically more intelligent than any other. Without previous generations knowledge and research, we'd not be wherre we are today. Basic garri from cassava, or making amala, your generation never discover. We are still drinking and eating mostly what other generations gave us. Those who invented train, aeroplane, knife, wheelbarrow etc are not duller than your generation. My grandpa's clayhouse has outlasted many "modern" houses in Lagos.
Talking about jobs, there will be things to do if that's what you call jobs. But you won't need to eke out a living, or live from hand to mouth as is the major way today.
3-WHO WILL WE MEET? Will we meet ppl from all races and ages, periods in history? Will we age? Will women get pregnant? Will there be childbirth?We'll meet everybody who "made" it to Heaven from Adam to the end of this world. There will be no aging as we will be like God.
Isa 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
i don't know about pregnancy or childbirth, but i don't think so.
4-WHAT TYPE OF ECONOMY?- How will the economy work? Any elaborate details please. capitalism, communism, other economic model?Economy? i guess you mean buying and selling. There will be no buying and selling in Heaven. You will have all things at your disposal, and there will be peace and contentment. It's like God given oxygen, you don't buy it. You take all you need.
5-WILL THERE BE ECONOMIC BOOM AND BUSTS?No crazy oscillations in Heaven. There will be prosperity for every person.
Deu 11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD swore unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
The Kingdom of Heaven is a place of peace, multiplication and fruitfulness. That's why you're invited to share. This world is already out of place. All the earthquakes, sufferings and pain were not meant to be. A fullness of what was meant to be is what Heaven is.
