FEW QUESTIONS FOR YOU
What when the earth is filled ?
Why God created other planets ?
Will It be one language again ?
What we will do in eternity ?
(Read- Deut. 29: 29; Pro.25: 2)
HOPE NOT LIMITED TO EARTH Jesus said; Jn.14: 1-3 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also . (If hope is only the earth; for whom will be the mansions?)
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. (1.Cor.2: 9) Eph.1: 4- 9 We are chosen (v.4) predestinated unto adoption of children (v.5) Accepted (v.6) redeemed (v.7) Forgiven, Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
GOD BE OVER ALL THE GREAT ABDICATON 1 Cor.15: 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. Rev.22: 3-4 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
Eph 1: 10 That in the dispensation of the fullness of times
he might gather together in one all things in Christ,
