How do you fit the New Heavens and the New Earth (Revelation 21) into your model?
by Robert Brow  (www.brow.on.ca)

  As I see it, Abraham looked forward to the city whose architect and builder is God"  (Hebrews 11:10) but that was only in the future till the resurrection, when Jesus went to prepare our place for us (14:2).  That means the New Heavens and New Earth is already there for me.   I do not hope to go into cold storage when I die to await it in the future.  So I expect to enter the new heaven and earth  (the city of God in Revelation 21:22-22:5) the moment I die.  Meanwhile I worship and join with the Lamb as he is reigning and putting  all enemies under his feet.
