New Heaven & New Earth
New Heaven and New Earth (NHNE) is not an apocalyptic afterlife but an edenic state of heightened spiritual consciousness prophesied to occur among the living. According to various estimates, it may take all of humanity about 1,200 to 3,000 years to reach the spiritual state of NHNE.
However, the timing of NHNE is also an individual phenomenon. For one does not GO to New Heaven & New Earth. Rather, one GROWS to New Heaven & New Earth. Therefore, the arrival of the spiritual state of NHNE for an individual will depend on when s/he consummately attains Christ-consciousness. Watch video (Figure 1) for 4 telltale signs of NHNE in the invidividual.
Renowned "Sleeping Prophet," Edgar Cayce, who channeled prophesies from the Akashic Records, gives another sign (in italics below) to identify the cross-over to NHNE of the individual (and collective humanity eventually):
Q: In Revelation 21－What is the meaning of "a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea"?
A: When the foundations of the earth are broken up by those very disturbances. Can the mind of man comprehend no desire to sin, no purpose but that the glory of the Son may be manifested in his life? Is this not a new heaven, a new earth? (Edgar Cayce 281-37)
These passages in the Christian Bible provide even more signs (in italics below) to mark the arrival of NHNE in the individual (and collective humanity eventually):
Revelations 21:4 — 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. Behold, I make all things new.
Isaiah 65:17 — I am about to create a new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.
Those who are waiting for an external NHNE phenomenon to happen to them will be waiting and seeking forever and never evolve. They will have to come back and repeat their lives until they learn to evolve. Whereas those who transcend Old Heaven Old Earth (OHOE) through their consciousness are already experiencing their new NHNE reality from their new and different perspective (in dynamic proportions and varying degrees).
Those who died to the old self are living in their new earth. When this happens on a massive, world wide scale, the earth we live in will become beautiful in every aspect for all living beings.
