Life as strangers & Heavenly Home

Earth is our physical home where we born and grew up.

Then, what about our spirits?Is the earth our spiritual home, too?
Let's find the answer in the Bible.
In the book of Genesis, Jacob, one of our ancestor of faith, described his life as a pilgrimage.

Genesis 47/8-9 Pharaoh asked him, "How old are you?" and Jacob said to Pharaoh, "The years of my pilgrimage are hundred and thirty, My years have been few and difficult, and they do not equal the years of the pilgrimage of my fathers"
When Pharaoh asked Jacob how old he was, Jacob replied that the years of his pilgrimage were a hundred and thirty.
All the years Jacob had lived since his birth= Years of his pilgrimage

He testified the same thing about his fathers as well.
"The years of the pilgrimage of my fathers." 


This means that Jacob's ancestors, too, lived as strangers here on earth.

The same teaching is also recorded in the book of Hebrews.

Hebrews 11/4-14 By faith Abel... By faith Noah... By faith Abraham... All these people were still living by faith when they died..... And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own.

The ancestors of faith such as Abel, Noah, Abraham = admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth.

This is the same testimony as that of Jacob, who referred to his life and his ancestors'lives as a pilgrimage.

The ancestors of faith are not the only ones who lived as aliens and strangers on earth.

Ancestors of Faith + We = Aliens and strangers on earth

What does it mean that we are living as aliens and strangers on this earth?
It means that this earth is not our country.
This earth is our physical home, but it is not our spiritual home.

Where is our spiritual home, then?

Hebrews 11/15-16 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have hac opportunity to return, Instead, they were longing for a better country - a heavenly on.

A better country - a heavenly one = HEAVEN

Our physical home is somewhere on this earth, but our spiritual home is heaven.

Although we are now living on earth while putting on flesh, we were originally angels who lived in the glorious kingdom of heaven.

However, can we return to the country we have left if we live without thinking of it?

We need to fully understand that heaven is our spiritual home and make every effort to return to heaven while living godly lives according to the teachings of the Bible.

    Everyone can't avoid death. So God taught us a heaven without death and told us through the Bible that we were originally angels. But heaven is not a place where anyone can go. Only according to God's will obedient people can go. The church of God is the only church that informs the cause of life, the purpose of living, and informs heaven through the Bible. So saents of church of god are always bright and full of joy because they live thinking about heaven. I hope you all come to God's church and realize heaven through the Bible.

    Amen. To go back to our hometown heaven, we should follow the words of Elohim God.

    When a person leaves home and travel, he does not care much about outward circumstances. He might take a easy way and stay in a nice place for the night. Or sometimes he might have to take a hard way and stay out for the night. But seldom does he complains. He just accepts it as the part of his journey. Our life on this earth is the same. We are on a long journey to heavenly home. We might have a hard time but we should think it as only a part of our journey. And we should not complain. We have to have a joyful mind thinking about the eternal home we will go back.
