A Still Small Voice
What We Really Need
America, technology, and the New Earth—three things that, at first glance, don’t seem to have any direct connection. Granted, America and technology have intersected on more than one occasion, but what could they possibly have in common with the New Earth as it’s described in The Bible? What’s more, how have all three of these seemingly disconnected subjects found themselves clustered together under the main title of this work: On Earth as It is On Heaven?
“And pardon me for stating the obvious,” you may add, “but isn’t there a typo in your title? Don’t you mean to say, on Earth as it is ‘in’ Heaven, and not ‘on’ Heaven?”
To which I’d reply: “Actually, no, I haven’t erred in my intention when I speak of those things that are ‘on’ Heaven as opposed to their being ‘in’ Heaven. And to explain what I mean by that, let me offer the following explanation.”
In weaving a story with multiple elements—of America, of technology, of the New Earth, and of being “on” Heaven instead of “in” it—we have to address a series of questions that depend on The Bible to adequately answer them. First ask yourself: When you think of how the God of The Bible acts, what do you usually think of?

Story Continues From Above
When the Hebrew prophet Elijah needed it most, in his famous confrontation with Jezebel and her prophets of Baal, God acted like only God could act. In response to Elijah’s offering, God sent a great and mighty wind, an earthquake, and a fire. Strangely, though, it still did nothing to ensure that Elijah wouldn’t doubt God’s ability to protect him from Jezebel’s subsequent lust for revenge. So what did God do when Elijah’s faith wavered? He came to His rescue again, of course.But this time, the Lord came not only to help him but also to teach him—and us—a unique lesson. The arrival of the Lord brought with it a great and mighty wind, an earthquake, and a fire. Naturally, having just seen God’s fiery power rain down on his offering, Elijah would’ve assumed that all these things might bring him the solution he required. But no, it was the still, small voice that he really needed, although he might never have thought so in his wildest dreams.
