      The earth made new as the place for eternal life is considered along with more on reading the Old and New testaments. A “Yahoo! Answers” writer using the ID “BRANDON S” (Level 3 with 1,363 points, a member since December 15, 2007) posted the following:

We hear of Heaven as being the place for eternal life, so?

what does it mean in Psalms 37:11 “But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.” Psalms 37:22 “For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.” and Matthew 5:5 “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” When is this inheritance of earth going to happen? And if the meek are inheriting the earth, who is going to heaven? Is Heaven going to be on earth in a restored Garden of Eden?

THE BATTLE AXE: Two Different Testaments? (01/05/2013)—Rightly understood, the Bible presents a single covenant proclaiming two testaments from GOD. The first and second pledge for a “promised land” were as testament to establish geopolitical nations that would be in intimate relationship with GOD through divine law and promise. The testament established through the blood of Jesus Christ is to set up an eternal, spiritual kingdom in the earth made visible now as the church (see Jeremiah 3: 14-16 and Ephesians 2: 1-22, King James Version).

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Revelation 21: 1-4, King James Version)

(09/24/2012); A New Earth (02/14/2012); Issues of Judgment (02/15/2012); Binder 18: Eternal Life (10/15/2011); Having Life? (03/13/2011); End of Strife (03/14/2011); Prophecy Fails? (03/15/2011); Meek Abram (10/17/2010)

      The Scriptures indicate that the place for mankind throughout eternity is the earth, not heaven (Isaiah 45: 18, KJV). Mankind has polluted the earth, and the earth must be purged and made new for a people that will be immortal and incorruptible (see Isaiah 24: 1-6, 65: 17-25, and 66: 22-23, KJV. Also, consider again Proverbs 10: 30, 2nd Peter 3: 7-14, and KJV).

      That the dwelling place of GOD, and the Temple of High worship will not exist in the earth is a “great surprise” written in the Scriptures as prophecy. The New Jerusalem, the Bride of Christ, the City of GOD, will have no Temple (Revelation 21: 22-23, KJV), and neither the moon or sun will give light, there. When Jesus comes to receive the harvest of believers from the earth defiled by sin, he will not touch the ground. Believers are caught up to meet him in the air, and will ever be with Christ, first in heaven, then upon the earth made new (1st Thessalonians 4: 16-18, KJV). This is called “the first resurrection.”

      There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, “meek” means responsive to the Holy Spirit, and teachable by GOD. Those who will live in the new earth must first be prepared. Their preparation will include participation, service in, and witness of the judgment for those taken from the earth in the second resurrection.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
