It is very hard to imagine what it will be like in the Kingdom.
1 Corinthians 2:9 tells us that what God has prepared for those who
love him is better than anything we can think of.
We are, however, given little bits of information. Just enough to
make us want to be part of it!!
Jerusalem is where God's temple will be set up and everyone will go
there to worship him. It will be a time of peace and weapons of war
will be made into farming tools (Isaiah 2:1-4). Plants will flourish
in places they didn't used to grow and physical disabilities will be
healed. There will be no more sadness (Isaiah 35). Everyone will speak
the same language (Zephaniah 3:9) and even the animals will live in
harmony (Isaiah 65:17-25).
The final change Jesus will make is that there will be no more
death (1 Corinthians 15:24-26).
The Next Step
Now that you have had a quick look through the Bible it is time to
start reading it in greater detail. There are a large number of ways you
can do this. Below we have listed a few ideas as suggestions. You may
want to try a few of them before deciding which works best for you.
|Take a guided tour through the Bible.
|Choose any book of the Bible. Read a small one right through and a bigger one over a period of time.
Alternate between New and Old Testaments books.
|Select a particular subject to research. You may find that this becomes one long research
project as you come across other thoughts you wish to follow.
|Begin at Genesis or Matthew and read from one cover to the other
reading as much or little as you like at one time.
Make a note of any questions you would like to ask along the way.
|Select a Bible Reading Plan (there are many varieties available) and follow it.
