I have a relative that lives on an island in the Caribbean. He has often said that he lives in paradise. During the night on Tuesday, his paradise was demolished. He lost everything but his dog and his life. We are extremely grateful that his life was spared.
Many stories emerged this week that make it abundantly clear that the earthly places that we equate with paradise can be destroyed. However, the true paradise, the Kingdom of Heaven, will never be destroyed. If it dwells within you, it is your life and can never be taken from you no matter the circumstances.
It will be like the house built upon the rock. When wind and storm and rain beat against it, nothing, no storm and no attack from hell, can tear it down.
