Psalm 115:14-16 May the Lord give you increase more and more, 15)May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 16) The highest heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's, but the Earth He has given to the children of men.
Check out verse 16, the writer makes it very plain: The phrase "the highest heavens" refers to the heavens above the stratosphere; the invisible world where God lives. Keep in mind, that Heaven is God's realm, but He gave the earth to man, not in a deed of ownership, but as a lease agreement of proprietorship. Here the Bible tells us directly that heaven is not our territory.
Believers often speak about going to heaven when they die. Although that is true, God has made arrangements to make sure that we don't stay there. If we stay in heaven, God's word would fail, because He has plainly stated He created us to have dominion over the Earth. God's word can never fail.
Isaiah 55:10-11 For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth,and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater, 11) So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
If God says He created us to exercise dominion over the Earth, then clearly we cannot stay in heaven. Some of us need to get a clue. God's purpose for us has always been that we dominate the Earth; but our tendency in the church is to over-focus on heaven. Keep in mind, that the king of the universe has given us an earthly mandate. This is why He has made arrangements to ensure that believers who die now will return to the Earth with the Lord. Keep this in mind as well, that God has even made arrangements for our new bodies...it's called the resurrection.
