We all have a picture in our mind of what heaven must be like ... but in all of its grandeur … the most important thing about heaven is that’s where Jesus is! We will see the angels and saints, and be reunited with our dear loved ones who were saved. There will be no more death, no more tears, sorrow or pain! Our heavenly mansion will be in a place over 2 million square miles in size, full of gold, jasper, sapphire, emeralds and other precious stones (see Revelation 21).
Song Lyrics: "We read of a place that's called heaven, it's made for the pure and the free; These truths in God's Word He has given … how beautiful heaven must be! Sweet home of the happy and free, fair haven of rest for the weary. God's Light is forever there shining, the angels so sweetly singing up there by the beautiful sea. How beautiful heaven must be!"
2Corinthians 5:8 – “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” Zechariah 9:17a - “For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! …” Daniel 12:2-3 – “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Psalms 73:24-26 – “Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. 25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. 26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.”
Won’t you accept Jesus' gift of salvation so that someday you too will see how beautiful heaven must be?
