" What Does The Bible Say About Heaven"
The Final Judgment The New
Can you imagine just what
"Heaven is going to be like and look
The most beautiful peaceful sacred place anyone could ever
imagine being in. Yeah there are many people who think going to the canyons,
and the water falls are amazing.... they are not half amazing as Heaven is
going to be.
I just know by how the Bible speaks of Heaven, wow, it is
going to be grand, the most beautiful place ever that has been created. Are
You Going to be there?
BIBLE READING: Matthew
KEY BIBLE VERSE: Jesus replied, “Your problem is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know
the power of God.” (Matthew 22:29)
Acts 3:21 For he must remain in heaven until the time for the final
restoration of all things, as God promised long ago through his prophets.
Acts 4:12 There is salvation in no one else! There is no other name in
all of heaven for people to call on to save them.
OUR IDEAS ABOUT HEAVEN MUST BE BASED ON THE BIBLE
The Sadducees asked Jesus what marriage would be like in heaven. Jesus said
it was more important to understand God’s power than know what heaven will be
like. In every generation and culture, ideas of eternal life tend to be based
on images and experiences of present life. Jesus answered that these faulty
ideas are caused by ignorance of God’s Word. We must not make up our own
ideas about God, eternity, and heaven by thinking of them in human terms. We
should concentrate more on our relationship with God than about what heaven
will look like. Eventually we will find out, and it will be far beyond our
BIBLE READING: John 14:1-14
KEY BIBLE VERSE: There are many rooms in my Father’s
home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would
tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that
you will always be with me where I am. (John 14:2-3)
HEAVEN IS OPEN TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN CHRIST
Jesus’ words show that the way to eternal life, though unseen, is secure-as
secure as your trust in Jesus. He has already prepared the way to eternal
life. The only issue that may still be unsettled is your willingness to
Matthew 24:30 And then at last, the sign of the coming of the Son of
Man will appear in the heavens, and there will be deep mourning among all the
nations of the earth. And they will see the Son of Man arrive on the clouds
of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he will send forth his angels with the sound of a mighty
trumpet blast, and they will gather together his chosen ones from the
farthest ends of the earth and heaven.
35 Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will remain
JESUS IS PREPARING PLACES IN HEAVEN FOR HIS FOLLOWERS
There are few verses in Scripture that describe eternal life, but these few
verses are rich with promises. Here Jesus says, “I am going
to prepare a place for you,” and “I will come and
We can look forward to eternal life because Jesus has promised
it to all who believe in him. Although the details of eternity are unknown,
we need not fear, because Jesus is preparing for us and will spend eternity
BIBLE READING: Colossians 3:1-17
KEY BIBLE VERSE: Let heaven fill your thoughts. Do
not think only about things down here on earth. (Colossians 3:2)
Mark 13:32 “However, no one knows the day or hour
when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son
himself. Only the Father knows."
33 And since you don’t know when they will happen, stay alert and keep
1 John 5:7 So we have these three witnesses —
8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and all three agree.
The Final Judgment
Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and I saw the one who
was sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they found
no place to hide.
The New Jerusalem
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the
old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone.
2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out
of heaven like a beautiful bride prepared for her husband.
3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, the home of God is now among his people! He will live with them,
and they will be his people. God himself will be with them.
4 He will remove all of their sorrows, and there
will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its
evils are gone forever.”
HEAVEN’S PRIORITIES CAN BE PART OF LIFE HERE ON EARTH
Letting heaven fill our thoughts means striving to put heaven’s priorities
into daily practice and concentrating on the eternal rather than the
(Philippians 4:8-9 and Colossians 3:15 for more on Christ’s
rule in our hearts and minds.)
FOCUSING ON HEAVENLY THINGS PUTS EARTHLY THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE
The Christian’s real home is where Christ lives (John 14:2-3). This
truth gives us a different perspective on our life here on earth. To
“let heaven fill your thoughts” means to look
at life from God’s perspective and to seek what he desires. This is the
antidote to materialism; we gain the proper perspective on material goods
when we take God’s view of them. The more we regard the world around us as
God does, the more we will live in harmony with him. We must not become too
attached to what is only temporary.
BIBLE READING: Revelation 4:1-5:14
KEY BIBLE VERSE: As I looked, I saw a door standing
open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me with the
sound of a mighty trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up
here, and I will show you what must happen after these things.”
Luke 3:21 One day when the crowds were being baptized, Jesus himself
was baptized. As he was praying, the heavens opened,
22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in the form of a dove. And a
voice from heaven said, “You are my beloved Son, and I am
fully pleased with you.”
Ephesians 3:15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.
Philippians 3:20 But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus
Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.
21 He will take these weak mortal bodies of ours and change them into
glorious bodies like his own, using the same mighty power that he will use to
conquer everything, everywhere.
IT ISN’T WHAT, BUT WHO IS IN HEAVEN THAT MATTERS
Chapters 4 and 5 of Revelation record glimpses into Christ’s glory.
Here we see into the throne room of heaven. God is on the throne and
orchestrating all the events that John records. The world is not spinning out
of control; the God of creation will carry out his plans as Christ initiates
the final battle with the forces of evil. John shows us heaven before showing
us earth so that we will not be frightened by future events.
Genesis 28:17 He was afraid and said, “What an
awesome place this is! It is none other than the house of God—the gateway to
