Between the Cross and the New Creation (CD)
When Jesus died on a cross outside Jerusalem a couple thousand years ago, who won? At first glance, it looked as if Jesus’ enemies won ... as if evil won ... as if death won. But after a couple days, things looked very different. And when Jesus won out over His enemies, over evil, and over death our future changed forever. We now look forward to eternity in paradise with Christ.
The Bible starts with a paradise, the garden of Eden in Genesis 2. The Bible ends with another paradise, the new Jerusalem in Revelation 21. And here we are, stuck in the middle. Or are we? The old paradise is gone, but is the new paradise just for the future?
