As Jesus was dying His sacrificial Death Two criminals were also dying on both sides of him. One railed at him,” Are you not the Christ ? Save your self and us” But the other rebuked him saying. “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of death “? And we indeed justly; for we are receiving the due consequences for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong “. And he said to Jesus remember me when you come In your Kingly power”. “And Jesus said “Truely I say to you today , you will be with me in Paradise. ” Luke 23:39-43.
Jesus spoke of Paradise, Bible Prophecies also spoke of this Paradise. One such scripture is found in the book of Isaiah:65:17-25. Also the book of Revelation 21:1-6.
Perhaps you remember Adam and Eve, were given life in a paradise. But were cast out for disobedience and willfully and selfishly chose what satan offered them; to be like GOD , to decide for themselves what is good and bad . This promise of life in paradise, is the hope of Christians who obey. And not follow the disobedient course of Adam and Eve .We can be thankful that GOD has by given us individual choice to obey God and have life in that n paradise. Agape love, Terry
