He (God) has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their heart… ( Eccl. 3:11 )
IF ADAM AND EVE DIDN’T SIN, WHERE WILL THEY BE?
Adam and Eve, and their offspring will enjoy life eternally here on earth in peace, security, and good health. Sadly though, they disobeyed God and joined Satan in his rebellion – which resulted to human suffering and death.
ISN’T JESUS INVITED PEOPLE TO GO TO HEAVEN?
Yes, and those invited will form the heavenly government or God’s kingdom. (John 18:36) They will be priests of God and of the Christ, and they will rule as kings with Jesus over the earth for a thousand years. (Rev. 5:10; 20:6) In the last days which points to our time, they are responsible in restoring pure worship after true christianity was tainted by apostasy since the death of the last apostle. While theyare still on earth, they are responsible for feeding spiritual food to all christians, they take the lead in preaching the good news about God’s kingdom throughout the earth, they oversee the operations of God’s organization, and also, they protect the worldwide congregations’ spiritual well-being. (Isa. 2:2-4; Acts 15:14; John 21:15-17; Matt. 24:14, 45; Eph. 6:11, 12) Truly, they will do greater works as our lord Jesus stated in John 14:12. Their heavenly hope or calling is from God, and those who have the hope to live in paradise here on the earth will be their subjects.
So what is your hope? Will you be in heaven as priest and king with Christ to apply Jesus ransom for a thousand year reign to restore God’s original purpose for humankind? Or will you be one one of the citizens of God’s kingdom to enjoy life here on the earth in eternity – without pain, suffering, and death?

HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE WORD “TODAY” IN LUKE 23:43?
Jesus promise to the criminal to be with him in Paradise – will happen in the future and not on the same day he said it. Why so? Because when Jesus died, he was in the grave, and on the third day, God resurrected him. Also, there is no record in the bible of the criminal being resurrected – that same day or even any day after. Hence, NWT accurately rendered Luke 23:43, it reads: And he said to him: “Truly I tell you today, you will be with me in Paradise.”
