Earth Will Be The Reward Of The Righteous, Earth Will Be The Reward Of Saints

Earth Will Be Reward Of Saved

Let’s start this Bible discussion with two very important questions for you: Is the reward of the righteous an eternity in heaven? More specifically, does the Bible actually present heaven as the reward of those who are saved? The popular belief about heaven as the reward of the saved varied considerably through the centuries. Based in part on their own visual preferences, many religious preachers and Bible teachers adapted their concepts of heaven in a rural setting while others have imagined an urban paradise. Today, we are going to share a Bible truth with you that it’s not in heaven but earth will be reward of saved of Yahweh! Surprised? Keep reading on and discover this amazing truth now that you may not been told before. And as always, we humbly ask the Holy Spirit of Yahweh to give us the heavenly wisdom in discussing with you this vital biblical topic. We pray that you may have the eyes to see and may have the ears to hear for this true and faithful message.

What is the most traditional belief about heaven among many? Traditional pictures of heaven sometimes show an entrance with a rainbow arching over it, perhaps marked by a bridge of gold or glass. Saint Peter is usually represented as the doorkeeper. The inhabitants are shown accompanied by angels, or they may appear as angels themselves, having a pair of wings. Another common view in the popular consciousness has the inhabitants sitting about on clouds plucking harps. The decor of heaven often features stars, candles and trumpets. Some resonate heaven with descriptions of golden streets, jewelled buildings, and richly dressed residents. Many view heaven where the saints shall eternally, without interruption, feast their eyes upon Yahweh, and be ever viewing his glorious perfections. For many people the most important aspect of heaven is the opportunity to see their loved ones again and the hope of meeting their family again. Adding to these myths is the popular concept that when a good person dies he or she immediately goes to heaven. But do these concepts agree with the Bible? Do the Holy Scriptures indeed state that righteous people go to heaven when they die? To be fair, yes,  Yahweh does have a plan that will reunite loved ones, as we will see. But the popular ideas about heaven and good people going to heaven when they die fall far short of capturing the majesty and purpose of Yahweh’s plan. Those seeking proper biblical knowledge and wanting to be true Christians need to know the Bible truth on these things.

Be aware there are three “heavens” discussed in the Bible. The first heaven is Yahweh’s dwelling place, the place of His throne and the place where the resurrected Savior of mankind Yahshua is today. Notice here what the Bible say about heaven specifically called Yahweh’s dwelling place: “Look down from Your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless Your people Israel and the land which You have given us, just as You swore to our fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey” (Deuteronomy 26:15). Further, Bible say this about Yahshua being in heaven: “We have such a High Priest who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens” (Hebrews 8:1). The second heaven discussed in the Bible is what we call outer space. It is the domain of the moon, planets, comets, asteroids, sun and stars. The Bible’s king David spoke of this when he reflected on the awesomeness of Yahweh’s creative handiwork, which he described as “Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained” (Psalm 8:3). The Bible also mention “the stars of heaven” (Genesis 26:4; Deuteronomy 1:10; 28:62; Isaiah 13:10).  The third heaven mentioned in Bible is the atmosphere, the envelope of air that surrounds our planet, consisting of oxygen and other gases. This heaven—earth’s atmosphere—is mentioned in such passages as Genesis, which describes the great flood of Noah’s day: “The windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights” (Genesis 7:11-12). Notice the Bible also speaks of “the birds of heaven,” those that fly overhead (Job 35:11; Jeremiah 16:4). Therefore, to determine which heaven is meant in a Bible passage, we must carefully consider the context. And yes, by the authority of Yahweh let it be known to all the prophet Elijah did not go to heaven and Enoch was not taken to heaven, if we are to follow proper biblical contexts! Notice one such clear Bible statement in regards to this truth: “No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man (Yahshua the Messiah) who is in heaven” (John 3:13). It cannot be any clearer than this! To believe not in this truth is a hypocrisy and blasphemy!

Furthermore, for the sake of your Bible literacy you will also do well in knowing that Yahshua did not tell His disciples they should expect to dwell in heaven. He spoke instead of a Kingdom belonging to Yahweh in heaven that is to be established on the earth at Yahshua’s second-coming! Notice Yahshua’s explanation that He would come to join His followers on earth at His return rather than have them come to live with Him in heaven where He currently resides. Yahshua had instructed them about the Kingdom of Yahweh (Acts 1:3). After this He joined His Father in heaven. He also speaks repeatedly of His return to this earth to establish the Kingdom of Yahweh (Matthew 25:31-34; Luke 21:27-31). The Savior of mankind Yahshua will return to earth and establish His Kingdom here—not in heaven! In what is commonly called the Lord’s Prayer, He instructs His followers to pray to their heavenly Father, “Your Kingdom come” on earth (Matthew 6:10; Luke 11:2).  Yahshua also speaks of Himself in a parable, comparing Himself to “a certain nobleman who went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return. ” The “far country” is His Father’s dwelling place, which is in heaven. This means that Yahshua will bring the Kingdom of Yahweh to earth at His return! That coming Kingdom is the real goal of every true Christian (Matthew 6:33). And, we’re told to pray for its arrival.

In closing, let it be known by all nations and peoples that the earth will be reward of saved of Yahweh, not in heaven! The Savior of mankind Yahshua will arrive back on earth  to establish His Kingdom: “And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east…And Yahshua shall be King over all the earth” (Zechariah 14:4, 9). The Bible describe the Saints (good, righteous, chosen people) to be ruling on earth in Yahweh’s Kingdom: “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our Elohim, and they will reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:10). The Bible also state that ultimately Elohim the Father and the heavenly city of Yahweh, the New Jerusalem, will descend to the earth, then renewed. The earth, then, will be the place of Yahweh’s throne. And the repentant of mankind, then glorified, will dwell with Him forever (Revelation 21 and 22). Yet Saints will not then be confined to the earth but will inherit the entire vast universe and spirit realm as coheirs with Yahshua the Messiah. The reward of the Saints is eternal life in the Kingdom of Yahweh. This will be given when Yahshua returns, but, as we have seen, Yahshua will reign with His faithful followers on the earth rather than in heaven! We hope you’re enlightened by this truthful and faithful Kingdom message. May Almighty Father in heaven Yahweh bless you, especially His Saints around the world. All of these things we ask and pray in name of our coming King and Savior, Yahshua Messiah, Amen. Love and peace to all of you. Halleluyah, Shalom!
