Great Sermon! I agree that Heaven is the "intermediate" state for the sole reason that our (Christians') FINAL resting place is in the New World - the New PARADISE to replace the old one that was "shut off" from mankind due to Adam & Eve's sins! The Holy Bible declares that this present world (earth) shall be totally cleansed of all its rottenness (filth) by our KING YESHUA who shall reign from His Mighty Earthly Throne in JERUSALEM (Israel) for all eternity. And we too shall be alive with Him forever and never again suffer death!! O! What a glorious event would that be! Indescribable to say the least!!!
