The original good world God intended – the original homeland
The expression “original homeland” refers to the original Garden of Eden. If the Fall had not occurred, not only Adam and Eve, but also their descendants, would have continued to live in the Garden of Eden.
It is important to understand that the Garden of Eden was not meant to be limited to a certain small geographical area, but should have become a whole world full of goodness, love, truth and freedom.
Realizing our original homeland therefore means that we create the ideal world that God originally planned before creating the first human beings. Such a world, i.e. the Kingdom of Heaven, will only be established globally when we all do our part to turn our home place into what it originally should have been, a part of the Kingdom of Heaven.
