Genesis 1:1, 31 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth... Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. Death on Earth Genesis 2:17 “Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
Genesis 3:17-19 “Because you have...eaten from the tree... cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, ...Dust you are, and to dust you shall return.”
Life on Earth
John 6:47 “He who believes in Me has everlasting life.”
Not on Earth
II Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
Return to Earth
Zechariah14:5,9; Revelation 20:6 The Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You. And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. They shall reign with Him a thousand years.
Isaiah 35:6; 11:6,8; 65:20 Waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat... and a little child shall lead them. The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. No longer will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, for the youth will die at the age of one hundred.
Revelation 21:1,4 I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
View from Earth
Matthew 6:10, 33 “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
