When I read about the various descriptions regarding the messianic age, I can't help but wonder if the age is one where the earth ceases to exist and instead merges with a divine plane of existence.
- The rising of the dead
- The amount of Jews living in the State of Israel
- The Holy Temple falling from the sky
- Animals that were once predatory living in harmony
- Knowledge of the Torah being accessible in the minds of all
There are various ideas which have been discussed regarding the messianic age. Obviously, there is debate regarding these ideas and much of these are up in the air.
I'm simply asking if the Messianic Age is an "end of the world as we know it" kind of situation and less of a revelation. If the events depicted actually came to fruition, the very nature of life on earth would be altered drastically and in a divine fashion. This makes me wonder if the messianic age is a union between heaven and earth (even partially)
