Welcome to Q&A of The Home Of The Saved page
Let your imagination picture the home of the saved. It will never be again with the scourge of sin and death.
Christ through His death upon the cross overcame Satan who has the power of death – the originator of sin.
Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29.
Thus that which alone can effectually restrain from sin in this world will prevent sin to arise again in Heaven.
The entire universe sin antidote comes only by looking to the sufferings of the Son of God.
Angelic perfection failed in Heaven. Human perfection failed in Eden. Therefore, all who wish for safe Heaven or earth must look to the Lamb of God – thus the affliction shall not rise up the second time.
What do ye imagine against the Lord? He will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time. Nahum 1:9.
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9.
Question: For what purpose was the earth created?
Answer: Isaiah 45:18.
For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.
Question: What was given to man at creation?
Answer: Genesis 1:26-28.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
Question: Did man retain this dominion?
Answer: Hebrews 2:6, 8.
But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him?
Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him.
But now we see not yet all things put under him.
Question: To whom did he surrender it?
And the devil said unto Him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
Question: Through whom will the lost dominion be restored to man?
For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
Question: What promise was made to Abraham and his seed
Answer: Genesis 13:14-16.
And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
Question: How much did this promise include?
Answer: Romans 4:13.
For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
Question: Was this promise fulfilled in Abraham’s lifetime?
Answer: Hebrews 11:9-13.
By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell.
And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.
Question: For what are the righteous to still look?
Answer: 2 Peter 3:13.
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Question: What question did Peter ask Jesus upon a certain occasion?
Answer: Matthew 19:27.
Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
Question: What was the Savior’s reply?
Answer: Matthew 19:28, 29.
And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
Question: What else will they inherit?
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

Answer: Psalms 37:9, 29.
For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
Question: How will the earth appear then?
Answer: Isaiah 35:1, 2.
The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.
Question: How will it be purified?
Answer: 2 Peter 3:10-12.
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
Question: What glorious scene on the new earth is pictured before us?
Answer: Revelation 21:1-5.
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Question: How is the home of each one described ?
Answer: Isaiah 65:17, 21, 22.
For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
Question: In view of these things, what exhortation is given us?
Answer: 2 Peter 3:14.
Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
Christ has regained the kingdom forfeited by sin and redeemed will possess it with Him.
The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever. Psalm 37:29.
Moreover, human language is inadequate to describe their reward.
The true Christians joy and consolation must and will be in Heaven. The longing souls of those who have tasted of the powers of the world to come will not be satisfied with earthly things.
Thus in contemplating their treasure – the Holy City, the eternal home and the earth made new – the Heaven will be near to them.
