Ever wonder “Where is our eternal , heavenly” home?”
According to Psalm 49:11, it’s not “up there” or “out there” as some believe and teach. Psalm 49:11 (and Luke 17:21) says our eternal (“heavenly”) home is WITHIN you.
First, see Psalm 49:10 below. It says we will be “dying” and leave our belongings to “others”. Don’t be too concerned about the words “brutish-one” and “one-stupid” those are not properly translated. One means “rich” (ksil) and one means “on foot” (ubor). Also, please notice it doesn’t say we will fully “die…“, but just “be dying” which I believe means “to disappear from visible sight”.
After all, can darkness ever overtake light? Or does the darkness always flee once the light is turned on?
Then, please check out the next verse of Psalm 49:11 carefully. It reveals that “WITHIN of them” (us) are our TRUE, eternal houses that we will live in forever (and I believe we are already there but can’t see or sense it).
Meanwhile, outwardly (via our “humanity), we are “tabernacling” (temporarily living in) for-generation and-generation (outwardly, visibly); we are “called” (given a life purpose) and given “names” and placed on “grounds” (different lands, nations).
The New Testament parallel verse in Luke 17:21 is just as beautiful. It says you will NOT see the kingdom of heaven via outer perception or senses. It is INSIDE YOU.
If this is true, how does this make you feel about God’s goodness and love towards you?
