Paradise Part One

Posted by: Pastor J Jacobs on Tue, Mar 19, 2019

 

  • Because God is loving, He reward his faithful worshippers and followers with a good life in Paradise.

  • This is the reason that God inform His followers about what they need to do in order to gain God’s approval.

  • The Bible told us that we can gain God’s approval by taking in His knowledge by obeying  Gods commands.—

 

John 17:3 KJV

[3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:3 KJV

[3] For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

“You will be with Me in Paradise.”

Luke 23:43

43 And Jesus said to him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.

  • The Word “Paradise”. Means Glory.
  • Means the beautiful garden.
  • Means “beyond walls,” No boundaries, No sickess No dying, Nothing you ever experienced here will be there.

Genesis 2:8-9

The Lord God planted an orchard in the east, in Eden; and there he placed the man he had formed. 

The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow from the soil, every tree that was pleasing to look at and good for food. (Now the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil were in the middle of the orchard.)

  • Is the place of those who died righteously.
  • The New Testament mention Paradise

Luke 23:43-The thief on the cross

43 And Jesus said to him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”

  • The paradise Jesus spoke about is the paradise without walls or boundaries.
  • This paradise is the place for the righteous dead.

2 Corinthians 12:4

was caught up into paradise and heard things too sacred to be put into words, things that a person is not permitted to speak.

  • Due to the sacredness of the garden, natural words is unable explain it.
  • You have to be righteously dead before are able to see the garden.
  • To see be in paradise is to dead, not just dead, but to be righteously dead

Revelation 2:7

The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, I will permit him to eat from the tree of life that is in the paradise of God.’

  • All these was Before Jesus Ascended.

Jesus Christ enlightened us and He showed us what is to come and what we are to expect:

    1. Jesus’ promise to the thief on the cross as to the reality of paradise.

Luke 23:43

43 And Jesus said to him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”

    1. Peter made a statement regarding Jesus 

Acts 2:31

31 David by foreseeing this spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that he was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did his body experience decay.

    1. Jesus statement to Mary 

John 20:17

17 Jesus replied, “Do not touch me, for I have not yet ascended to my Father. Go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”

 

    1. The story of Lazarus and the rich man 

Luke 16:19-31

  • At this time, the home of the righteous and the unrighteous dead was not in Heaven, but in Hades!
