“Before His return, Earth was isolated. Now that He’s back and things are built anew, we’re free to come and go. As long as the work gets done.”

Amram leads Amarisa by the hand up the steps, stopping to point out the interactive plaques along the walkway. “Through here.”

“Can anyone go through?”

“Only covenant keepers with these.” Amram produces a translucent, egg-shaped gem.

“Umm…, Kinda forgot mine.”



“C’mon, then. Let’s get it.”

“Ams, is that why people from Telestial worlds can’t come here, ‘cause Earth’s now a Terrestrial world again, and that’s higher than Telestial?”

“Smart girl.”

    A doorway to another place or teleporter, either way was wondering who, what and where are the earth people. Well done
    I am number 44 this week

    • The earth people are still on Earth. The story takes place on Earth, a few hundred years after the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

      During the Millennial reign of Christ, Earth is restored to it paradisiacal state, like it was before the fall of man. This paradisiacal environment is a Terrestrial degree of glory, incomprehensibly more beautiful and peaceful than anything we are familiar with today.

      There are no more wicked people alive on the earth during the Millennial reign of Christ, so tremendous advancements and freedoms prevail. Amram and his girlfriend, Amarisa, are out exploring the wonders of the restored Earth, and then some.

      Amram wants to take Amarisa through the portal to visit worlds of a lower order than the restored Earth. Those lower worlds pertain to a Telestial kingdom, similar to what the earth is like at present, in its fallen state.

      Terrestrial people can visit Telestial worlds, but Telestial people cannot visit a Terrestrial world. In other words, people who are willing to abide the laws of a higher kingdom can visit worlds of a lower order, but people who are only willing to abide the laws of a lower kingdom cannot visit worlds of a higher order.

    Interesting-I’m reminded of Mormon theology, although the part about God leaving and coming back. Is that a reference to Jesus?

    Intriguing post. It could make for a much longer story.

    • Yes, the reference is to Jesus Christ. The story is set in the future, after the Second Coming. The story takes place about halfway through the 1,000 years of peace, during which Christ reigns personally on the earth.

      Nice to know someone recognizes the Mormon theology in the story.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

    perhaps that is heaven ? Good story

    • Actually, it is not heaven yet. In the story, Earth has been restored to a state of paradise, and Jesus Christ reigns personally on the earth for a thousand years of peace. The earth does not become a Celestial world, heaven, until some time after the 1,000 years of peace have ended and a final battle between good and evil transpires.

      The Telestial worlds that Amram and Amarisa want to visit are actually lesser worlds, as seen from the perspective of the two characters. Telestial worlds are similar what Earth is like at present. The sense of adventure driving Amram and his girlfriend, Amarisa, involves the freedom to travel to any number of Telestial worlds and then return to the paradisiacal Earth.

  4. Let’s face it. You brain is off in another world.

    What I love about this story is that its genesis lies in science fiction of another era.
