WARNING: This will be kinda long and full of a ton of different Bible verses.
Hi, I’m asking three questions because I’m confused about the places people go after the Last Judgment. According to most Christians you ask, after the Last Judgment people will either go to Heaven or Hell right?
Well, I have these 3 questions.
*]According to revelation, the saved will go to a New Heaven, New Earth, (Revelation 21:1) and a New Jerusalem. (Revelation 21:10). What confuses me is in Revelation 21:1, it says that the “old heaven and earth” passed away. I know our present earth is going to be gone. But Heaven? So basically, the Bible is saying that there’s going to be NEW Heaven. So does that mean the Heaven that saved people go to, will be gone? And that will be at the Last Judgment, we’ll be sent to a new one?
*]Also, about the New Earth, Jehovah’s Witnesses (and no I’m not one) believe that most good people will go to the New Earth, and only 144,000 people go to New Heaven. What is the Catholic teaching on the New Earth?
*]In Revelation 20:14, it says death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. Does this mean Hell and the Lake of Fire are two totally different places?
