Heaven on Earth

November 18th, 2009 Posted in encouragement, essentials, OC, Pastor's corner, sermons

From the beginning of time, man has searched for peace. He has joined peace movements, marched for peace, given prizes for peace, and even gone to war for peace.

When you hear of someone being arrested for “disturbing the peace,” you have to wonder where he found any to disturb!

Some tell us to “visualize world peace” on bumper stickers, then cut us off on the freeways!

The United Nations has displayed the words of Isaiah 2:4 over its doors: “They shall beat their swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks.”

Only Christ will bring it

But neither the United Nations, nor politicians, nor people who “visualize it” will bring about the long-awaited peace on Earth that mankind so desperately longs for.

It will come only when the Creator Himself returns and retakes what is rightfully His and hangs a sign over this war-weary planet  that says “Under New Management”!

Yes, Jesus is coming back again.

And God is not late, we are just a bit early. As 2 Peter 3:9 tells us: “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

This Thursday in O.C.

When Jesus comes back to this Earth to establish His kingdom, there will finally be world peace and much, much more. It’s a picture of our future,and it may be coming sooner then we think.

This Thursday in Orange County, “Heaven on Earth” will be my topic. I will deal with what happens after the second coming of Jesus Christ to the Earth.

It all starts at 7:00 P.M. at 2777 McGaw Avenue in Irvine. For more info, click here.

    Dear Pasrot Greg,
    Thank you for your inspirational blog and devotional entries. I find them to be so insightful and read them almost daily!
    I just had to share a quick story:
    My 3 yr old daughter Maddie foud a picture of you dedicating my husband when he was a child circa 1982 and she came and said “look mommy at this picture” and I said “yes do you know who that is?” and she said very confidently “yes (referring to you) that is the president!” In your many years of ministry I bet you’ve been called many things, but I wonder if you’ve ever been called President?!? Too funny!!!
