"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

A TTUF EXAMINATION OF HEAVEN – PART THREE: The Second Heaven

Space: the Final Frontier…” were the epic words that started a legacy known as Star Trek and has had as much impact on the cultures of the world as that other famous line, “In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit” that brought us to the world of Middle Earth.

And as vast as our galaxy is, to say nothing of the universe itself, we must ponder the question, “Is it really the final frontier?” Once this entire creation and known reality is swept away, GOD is going to create a new heavens and a new earth (REV 21; ISA 66:22)! Think of the excitement we will have in exploring these heretofore unknown frontiers!

But even if one discounts all of that - there is the limitless exploration and discoveries of the mysteries of GOD! You see, what we know of GOD is limited to the inspired canon. That’s not to say that the Holy Scriptures in conjunction with the Holy Spirit doesn’t provide us an astounding amount of revelation about our Creator and Redeemer, it’s simply as the acronym suggests: B.I.B.L.E. Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

We have all the basics that we need to live godly in Christ Jesus (2 PET 1:3-4); we’re blessed with plenty of knowledge to enjoy a full and rich relationship with the LORD. But once we enter into eternity with glorified bodies and minds, the LORD will be able for the first time, to reveal His nature and all of the Truth that’s personified in His Person with no limitations on our part to grasp it all.

That being said, since He is eternal in His nature, the wealth of knowledge available to us One Day as glorified saints will also be eternal. In other words, we won’t ever stop learning of our glorious GOD. We will be continuously afforded more and more Truth that will in no way contradict the canon of Scripture we have now but will expand upon and exemplify the Holy Scripture with deeper, more profound Truth.
