If This Isn't Heaven, I Don't Know What Is

Biblical Reasons Why We Should
And Practical Suggestions on How We Can

Create Heaven on Earth

This webpage is one of over one thousand webpages designed to bring about the fulfillment of Micah's Vine & Fig Tree prophecy. That prophecy is found here. I believe we are seeing it fulfilled, little by little.

Was Micah talking about Heaven, or was he talking about earth?

D. James Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe authored a book entitled What if Jesus Had Never Been Born. That book shows the difference Christ - and Christians - have made in the human condition in 2,000 years:

In the two thousand years since the first Christmas, much progress has been made toward the fulfillment of Micah's Vine & Fig Tree vision. Anyone living in the first century A.D. would be astonished at the progress if they could see the world today. They would consider the prophecy all but fulfilled. Many observers writing 200 years ago thought as much. "The American Dream" had become a reality for many people, just as America's Founding Fathers had hoped.

But in the last 100 years much of this progress has been reversed. Christian civilization has been eroded, and atheism and its resultant chaos and immorality have risen. Many of the liberties fought for by America's Founding Fathers have been lost. Their Constitution is a meaningless anachronism. Instead of being a "City upon a Hill," imparting the light of Christianity to the whole race of mankind (to quote James Madison), the United States has exported weapons of mass destruction, Harvard-educated dictators, and communism across the globe. "Liberty Under God" is virtually dead. During the last century, largely due to the conspiratorial efforts of Secular Humanists at the highest levels of the United States government, an average of more than 10,000 people were murdered each and every single day during the 20th century -- by politicians and their henchmen. This figure includes wars which target innocent non-combatants, concentration camps, government-orchestrated famines, and legal abortions -- murders that were largely absent from the globe 200 years ago, but which have today become routine. And ignored.

This trend can be reversed.

It ought to be reversed.

But there are at least 100 million people in America who call themselves "Christians" who deny those last two sentences; people who can and should reverse the secular trends of the last 200 years; 100 million people who represent the most powerful political and social force on the planet, and could change the course of history and bring about Micah's Vine & Fig Tree vision for nearly 6 billion of their fellow human beings.

They adamantly refuse to do so.

Many advocates of Christian Reconstruction have been told by these Americans that all efforts to improve the human condition and bring about the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies concerning a coming "Golden Age" are sinful, because things are supposed to get worse and worse until Jesus comes again, and building a Christian civilization in our lifetime would only delay His Second Coming.
