Do we have a real future? Some of us are past the middle of our lives, so we have fewer years ahead than we have lived. At least according to our “expected” lifespans. The future is truly up to God Himself. Whether we have a future or not is entirely up to Him. Have you placed your life in His hands so that your future is also in His hands?
Young people, under the age of thirty, don’t really think about their future much. They live as if their lives will continue just as it has always been. It seems that our whole world today looks at life the same way and they believe that unless they have all of the best things given to them without cost, their lives are over and they have very little hope for the future. The “things” that everyone seems to be chasing are temporary things. Stuff that you only have here. Eternity only allows what is eternal, your soul, and what you’ve done for the Kingdom of God in this life.
Only two “classes” of people will be at the judgment seat of Jesus, the lost or the saved. Many of the “lost” actually think they are saved and some of the saved aren’t sure about their salvation. This is the future that awaits those who make it through the Tribulation. It can be wonderful if you have accepted Jesus because you will live through the one-thousand-year reign of Jesus. Just as those who were around after Adam and Eve were sent out of the garden, children will be born to them for many hundreds of years. The Earth will be restored to its original form during this time so thankfully “global warming” and “climate change” won’t be happening.
Why do I believe that this will happen? Because it is foretold in the book of Revelation. The restored Earth is part of “making all things new”. The millennial reign of Jesus will be a much better world than any of us grew up in. No wars, very few deaths, and a restored ecosystem…what’s not to like? If you are a Christian/follower of Jesus right now then the future is even better! When the Trumpet of God sounds, the dead in Christ will be raised first and then we who are alive and remain in Him will be caught up in the air to be with Him forever.
