David pondered his own existence.
Psalm 8:4 What is man, that You remember him? And the son of man, that you visit him?
Psalm 8:5 For thou hast made him a little less than Elohim and has crowned him with esteem and splendor.
Psalm 8:6 Thou made him rule over the works of Your hands; You put all things under his feet.
Psalm 8:7 All sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,
Psalm 8:8 The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, passing through the paths of the seas.
Psalm 8:9 Oh Master, how excellent is your Name in all the earth!
Why indeed! Do you know why you were created or the true purpose for your birth? Most professing Christians think it is to live a righteous life; die and go to heaven. Does Scripture really say that? Please notice the truth as stated in the next four scriptural examples:
John 3:13 And no one has gone up into heaven, except he who came down from the heaven, except he who came down from the heaven – the Son of Adam.
Ecclesiastes 9:5 (King James Version) For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward: for the memory of them is forgotten.
Why is David, a man after Elohim’s own heart not in heaven?
Acts 2:29 Men and brothers, let me speak boldly to you of the ancestor David, that he died and is buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.
Acts 2:34 For David did not ascend into the heavens: but he himself said, The Master said unto my Master, “Sit at my right hand,
Acts 2:35 Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”
Psalm 37:11 But the meek ones shall inherit the earth: and shall delight themselves in plenty of peace.
Which is it? Are we up in heaven or on earth after we die? What is the reward of the saved? Where is the Kingdom of Heaven, on earth or in heaven?
Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones – and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them – and the lives of those who had been beheaded because of the witness they bore to Messiah, and because the word of Elohim, and who did not worship the beast, nor his image, and did not receive his mark upon their foreheads, or upon their hands. And they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years
Where do the millennium and the restoration of all things take place?
