GOD RAISES DEAD DREAMS

Scripture uses death to identify man’s greatest enemy and there’s nothing man fears more. When a person expires, losing all vital signs, doctors, medicine, and science stand powerless in its presence. Only God can resurrect. But this sermon doesn’t deal with the physical cessation of life, it deals with death of a different nature. The death of God’s divinely inspired promises and visions. I’m persuaded that many Christians are in the gestation stage of a specific promise God has given them. Perhaps years ago He planted a dream and you’re still awaiting its fruition. Maybe even hope has begged you to admit that promise is dead. But the God that resurrected Christ from the dead can resurrect your promise.

A CHRISTMAS TRIP

Luke says as these shepherds watched their flocks during the night, the glory of God shined all around them. Now can you imagine that? It’s pitch black and then, suddenly, everything around them is illuminated! Then an angel appears and announces that the awaited Savior of the world has been born and is lying in swaddling clothes in a manger in Bethlehem. But it’s still not over. Besides this angelic messenger and the glory of God that is all around them, a vast, multitude of angels appears praising God, saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests” (2:13).

WHAT NEVER HAPPENED ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT

Let’s journey back several thousand years to Jerusalem during Passover week. This was the holiest of the seven Hebrew festivals that attracted thousands of worshipers. Some traveled hundreds of miles to attend this celebration in the religious capital of the world—Jerusalem. What a sight it must have been! For seven days the Priests appeared in their royal apparel, led the people in worship, offered sacrifices, and blew shofars (2 Chronicles 30:21). Everything was leading to the Day of Atonement when the High Priest would present the blood of a Passover lamb for the people’s sins. Not only was Jerusalem sightly its aroma was pungent.

Questions and Answers about Heaven

(Part 1 of 2 Messages)

John 14:1—3

I. Should Christians be Occupied with Heaven? 

Sometimes we hear the expression: “That person is so heavenly-minded, they are of no earthly good.” Is that so? Well, let’s examine what Scripture says; and I’ll begin by quoting the Author of Scripture, Jesus, in John 14:1—3.

Jesus said, “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. 2In My Father’s house are many rooms; if that were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again and will take you to Myself, so that where I am, there you also will be.”

When Jesus spoke these words, in one respect, he spoke as a groom to his bride. And who is the bride? It’s Christians. At first glance, this passage may not seem romantic but it is! Jesus is telling his bride that we have an incredible future!

Imagine it this way: Suppose an engaged couple lived across the country from each other. As they waited for their wedding, the groom, who was also an architect and builder, was constructing a magnificent house for them. Would not the bride be consumed with dreamy thoughts of how the house was taking shape? Not a single day would pass without her phoning her fiancé and . . .  telling him what to do! Oops! I apologize. Not a single day would pass without her phoning her fiancé and quizzing him of the process. Her imagination would run wild as she pictured her house coming together.

Since the Bible calls Christians “the Bride of Christ,” shouldn’t we be captivated by the afterlife and the promises it has given about Heaven? In our opening text, Jesus said his Father’s house contained many “mansions or dwelling places.” This statement alone should create wondrous interest about Heaven.

I want to go on record as admitting something: The more I learn about my future, the more excited I get about dying! I’m stoked and pumped about tomorrow because it puts me one day closer to entering Heaven and inheriting my rewards. I really mean this! I love contemplating the mysteries of Heaven and all that God has in store for me.

(Question) I have a question: Have you ever considered what makes your Christian life effective and pleasing to God? (Pause) Let me help answer that question: It’s when you take into account how Heaven will treat every word you utter and everything you do. Your effectiveness in the Christian life and your ability to please God, in large part, demands that consider how eternity will treat your behavior.

(Temptation) I want to disclose one of Satan’s effective temptations: It’s the temptation to make Christians think and live like this world is their home. And this isn’t our home! Psalm 119:19 is one of my favorite Scriptures, and it says this: “I am a stranger on the earth; Do not hide Your commandments from me.” 

Here’s what C.S. Lewis, the great Christian apologist of the 20th Century, said: “It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this one.”

Let’s attach some more Scripture to what I have been saying. Turn in your Bibles to Colossians 3:1—4 [New Living Translation]:

“Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. 2Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. 3For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. 4And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory.”

When you set your mind on “things above” it makes it abundantly easier to overcome the trappings of the world. I am persuaded that God will mark some of our chief endeavors as being those that fulfilled the command to “seek those things that are above.” Folks, let’s keep our mind on heaven. Amen?

One final notation about this: 

(Illustration) Let’s compare this to a mother that is preparing for her unborn child’s birth. The mom carefully monitors which foods, beverages, and medicines she ingests. She makes certain that her physical activity doesn’t upset or injure the unborn baby. She also starts purchasing clothes and preparing a room for the child. Now, could anyone accuse this mom of being too protective and preoccupied with the welfare of her unborn child? No! Then neither can Christians become too heavenly minded in this world as we prepare for our entry into eternal life.

(Transition) Now for what is actually the first question about Heaven:

II. At Death, Do Christians Immediately Go To Heaven?

There is a prevalent teaching that suggests that once Christians die the soul falls into an unconscious, intermediary state of being, remaining unconscious until the resurrection.

But what does the Bible say about the estate of Christians when they die? Well, Jesus said to the thief on the cross: “Today you will be with me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43). That means at death, believers join Christ in Paradise. And do you remember the story of “The Rich Man and Lazarus”? The rich man said, “I am in torment in these flames.”

Let’s also consider several more Scriptures:

Ephesians 3:15 “Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.” So, Paul points out that right now there is a “family in heaven and [a family on] earth.”

Let’s next consider Ecclesiastes 12:7. “then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it” [NASB]. Solomon says that at death our physical body returns to the dust of the earth, while our spirit returns to God, our Creator.

I now want you to look at a passage in Hebrews 12 that is loaded! Let’s begin with verse 22.

“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels23 to the general assembly and Church of the Firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect 24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.”

The first point Hebrews 12:22 makes is showing that the church on Earth is called, “Mount Zion.” It’s the House of God we are worshiping in now! Then verse 23 says there is a church in Heaven! And it seems to be mysteriously participating with us now! The Lord has even given this Heavenly church a name! It’s called, “the general assembly and Church of the Firstborn.” So, there’s no “soul sleep” for Christians that die. We stay actively involved with Jesus, the Apostles, and the Prophets that have preceded us in death. Hebrews 12:22 even says Believers that die are surrounded by “myriads of angels.”

III. Does Time Exist in Heaven? 

Decades ago, there was a popular Christian hymn entitled, “When the Roll is Called Up Yonder, I’ll be There.” I want you to notice the opening verse of that song:

“When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no more, and the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair; when the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore, and the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.”

Did you notice the lyrics, “and time shall be no more”? When I prepared this message I noticed that numerous songs include this line of lyrics—“and time shall be no more.” How could songwriters get this so wrong? It’s due to a mistranslation of Revelation 10:6 of KJV. I want to read this verse from the KJV:

“And [the angel] sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer.”

The people of the 1600s may have perfectly understood this passage. But the KJV doesn’t translate properly for the 21st century English speaking world. Here’s how the recent translations put it:

The NIV reads, “There will be no more delay.”

The NASB renders it: “There will no longer be a delay.”

But beyond how the NASB and the NIV translate Revelation 10:6, there is a supremely important hermeneutical rule that must be followed. Professors at seminaries teach that Scripture needs to be interpreted in regard to its larger context! What is the context of a particular passage?

Well, the context of Revelation 10:6 regards the final judgment of God against the world. For thousands of years the grace of God has withstood the judgments of God. God’s grace has prohibited his wrath from breaking forth! But in the book of Revelation all this changes! Now God is saying:

“Time has run out! There’s no more delay! My judgments are here to break forth now! All that the OT Prophets said about “the mystery of God is finished.” And then, boom! The wrath of God unfolds with unequalled fury.”

So when you understand the context of Revelation 10:6, it clarifies the misunderstanding that ‘time has come to a standstill.’ . . . In fact, before moving to the next question about Heaven, I want to point out how the “cessation of time” is inconsistent with the ways of God:

Revelation 8:1 speaks of “silence in heaven for about half an hour.” (No, this passage doesn’t mean that the women didn’t make it to Heaven!) If time ceases to exit, then why does God measure the silence in Heaven as being “for about half an hour”?

Secondly, there is music is in heaven. And music needs meter, tempo and spaces of rest. There are “full notes” “half notes” “quarter notes,” and they all require increments of time to create a musical composition. 

And third, what about God’s promise to Noah and all humanity in Genesis 8:22 that says, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease”? These are all measurements of time.

(Transition) Next question:

IV. Will Loved Ones from Earth be Recognized in Heaven? 

Yes indeed! We will enjoy renewing our acquaintances with loved ones and friends from Earth. And here’s why: Heaven doesn’t reduce our mental capacities; it sharpens them! This is what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:12 [NLT]. 

“Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.”

Wow! Can you imagine that? The NASB states it like this: “now I know in part, but then I will know fully, just as I also have been fully known.”

Doesn’t common sense suggest that we will not be dumber in heaven, we will be incredibly brighter! Scripture gives no indication that our acquaintances of this present life will be unrecognizable in Heaven.

Now turn to Matthew 17:1—4 and let’s read of Jesus meeting with Moses and Elijah on the Mount of Transfiguration.

Six days later, Jesus took with Him Peter and James, and his brother John, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves. 2And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His  garments became as white as light. 3And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. 4Peter responded and said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If You want, I will make three [b]tabernacles here: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”

Did you notice that the disciples instantly recognized Moses and Elijah even though they weren’t told who they were? This might suggest we will recognize instantly people we know of but have not previously met, perhaps as a result of individual personality emanating through their appearance. 

But what about loved ones that do not go to Heaven? How will we feel about that? I will make two observations about this:

First, once we are glorified in Heaven, we will possess an endowment of understanding God’s ways that incomparably transcends our knowledge today. And as possessing such knowledge, we will be able to embrace God’s System of Justice and what has happened to unbelievers.

Second, we must remember that the Bible says there will be no disappointments or tears in Heaven. So our hearts, minds, and souls will be at perfect peace forever. It’s also important to recall what Isaiah 65:17 says: “See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.”

It appears that, “The former things” refers to the sin and wickedness of Earth. It doesn’t preclude the memories of righteousness that we made on Earth.

V. Will we know everything in Heaven? 

In heaven, we will see clearly (1 Cor. 13:12), but we will never know everything. Regardless of how incredibly knowledgeable we become, we will always remain finite creatures with remarkable, but limited, intelligence. There is only one that stands in the arena of omniscience—and it’s God! Thus, the notion that, humans in Heaven will know everything in untrue.

When we go to heaven we become glorified humans; we won’t become God. Though angels are supremely intelligent, there are things that they know not (Mark 13:32).

(Transition) I think this next question is extremely interesting:

VI. Do humans change, grow, and learn once in Heaven? 

In keeping with our human nature, we will experience process in heaven. We will continually learn more of God. Ephesians 2:6—7 shows that God puts us in heavenly realms “in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace.” This means God will grant disclosures of himself throughout eternity. 

1 Peter 1:12 discloses how angels long to look into certain things. If angels do this, it’s likely that humans will, too. As we learn more of God, we will learn more of other people, angels, and the wonders of God’s creation. The sense of wonder among heaven’s inhabitants shows heaven is not stagnant. It is fresh and stimulating, suggesting an ever-deepening appreciation of God (Rev. 4—5). So, in heaven, we will always be learning and discovering.
