" IS THERE REALLY A HEAVEN?"
Try to visualize The Beauty of Heaven....
There is no way we can even imagine the actual Beauty of
Heaven. But the Bible is clear about what it will look like and how we are to
Many people say they have died and gone to heaven and some say they have died
and went to hell.... well I can relate to some of that. When, we call upon
the Lord to Save Us, and to Come into Our hearts, we become saved.
We have a promise from the Lord God Almighty, when we die or when He returns
that we will go to heaven. But, there are things we must do, and try our
hardest to do and stop doing and keep on doing!
Our culture has various misguided ideas about heaven: that it consists of
departed souls eternally playing harps in comfy cloud-chairs or that it means
doing or being everything you love best. They draw pictures of their version
of heaven, and which also, misleads other's who do not or have not read the
Bible about what Heaven looks like or will look like.
Perhaps the most tragic misconception is that heaven is the place where
everyone goes after death-or at least everyone who has lived a “good”
life. The Bible, by contrast, presents a picture of heaven as the glorious,
awesome home of the triune God. And the Bible is also very specific about who
will live there.
IS THERE REALLY A HEAVEN?
Genesis 14:22 . . . Abram replied, “I have solemnly
promised the Lord, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth.”
John 14:2 . . . 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
1 Corinthians 5:1 . . . We know that when this earthly tent we live in
is taken down-when we die and leave these bodies-we will have a home in
heaven. Not only is there a heaven, but Jesus is preparing it for our
WHAT IS HEAVEN LIKE?
Isaiah 65:17 . . . Look! I am creating new heavens and a new earth-so
wonderful that no one will even think about the old ones anymore.
Philippians 3:21 . . . He will take these weak mortal bodies of ours
and change them into glorious bodies like his own.
James 1:17 . . . Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God
above, who created all heaven’s lights.
Revelation 21:3-4 . . . 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.
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
Revelation 22:5 . . . There will be no night there-no need for lamps
or sun-for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and
ever. In heaven we will live forever with God.
There will be no sadness, no pain, no
evil, no death. Everything will be perfect and glorious. God will
give us new bodies and we will be able to talk face to face with the Lord
WHO WILL GET INTO HEAVEN?
Matthew 5:3 . . . “God blesses those who realize
their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is given to them.”
Matthew 19:14 . . . Jesus said, “Let the children
come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as
John 3:16 . . . God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so
that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
Those who accept Jesus Christ as Savior and recognize that only he can
forgive their sins will gain entrance into heaven. This only occurs with a
humble and repentant attitude.
DOES THE BIBLE REALLY CLAIM THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO HEAVEN?
John 14:6 . . . Jesus told him, “I am the way, the
truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
Jesus is the only way to heaven. We may want to buy our way in, work our way
in, think our way in. But the Bible is clear-Jesus Christ provides the only
PROMISES FROM GOD: John 14:2 . . . There are
many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you.
God is preparing a wonderful place for us in heaven.
1 Corinthians 2:9 . . . “No eye has seen, no ear has
heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love
Revelation 3:5 . . . All who are victorious will be clothed in white.
I will never erase their names from the Book of Life. Those who endure in
their faith have a secure place in heaven.
