19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
2 Samuel 3:10
10 To translate the kingdom from the house of Saul, and to set up the throne of David over Israel and over Judah, from Dan even to Beersheba.
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
1 Corinthians 15:28
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
That is a popular version that has been promoted with a lot of money to get people to not engage in politics in a way that would make the world a better place, by getting people to just say, "What's the use?"
What would be the point of our existence if it's already been determined that we're all gonna be killed off in one way or another or taken to heaven if that's what you believe.
What it actually says is that fire will be "rained down" on the causes of chaos, and lack of peace.
How important can our lives be here on earth if the bible says God will soon rain down fire and chaos upon all of us?

Seems like it would be easier to not ask questions at all, it jut created more confusion. Maybe I have too much of an attachment to this place but even with all of its flaws and constant chaos, I believe this can be home. I just loathe the fact that it's not my choice. Our lives are not in our control and that is unfair. No matter what any of us choose to do with our lives it can all be taken away if He chooses to. Like I said before it's all meaningless. We're like puppets living on borrowed time. The Bible makes my head hurt
