Where Will We Go After Meeting Him In The Air?

Q. When we are raptured, where will we land, after meeting Jesus in the air? Heaven? The New Jerusalem? Neither?

A. According to 1 Thes. 4:16-17 we will meet the Lord in the air and after that we will always be with Him. In 1 Cor. 15:51-53 Paul said we’ll be changed from mortal to immortal in the process. In John 14:2-3 Jesus said we’re going to “My Father’s house” where there are many mansions (literally; dwelling places, abodes) and where He has been preparing a place for us. And the writer of Hebrews said, “But you have come to Mt. Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly …” (Hebrews 12:22).

Personally, I believe when these verses are all taken together, they mean we’ll be going to the New Jerusalem.
