What Will Heaven Be Like?

Standard

Devotion:  Matthew 4:17

Will there be fields of flowers?  Mountains and hills?  Streams of water?  What will heaven be like?  We know there will be streets of gold and walls of pure jasper.  The tree of life will be there. Most importantly, Jesus will be there.  Our loved ones who’ve gone before us will be there.  We will never have to be separated from our loved ones again.  There will no disagreements or misunderstandings.

We know there will be no more tears, nor sorrow, no more pain or suffering. No more abuse of any kind.  No more cancer! That in itself is amazing.  No more sadness.  For the old things will pass away.  All things will become new.  There will be no more anxiety or depression or worry or fear.  No uncertainty; because everything will be perfect; just as it was in the garden of Eden.

                       NO SIN!  NO TEMPTATION!  NO WARS                                               OR RUMORS OF WARS! 

It’s beyond my comprehension!  Seems too good to be true!  But it’s reality for those of us who have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  All the troubles of this world will be GONE, forever gone.  There will be no more divorce or separation.  There are no marriages in heaven.  We will know each other as we were known; however, we won’t be together as husband and wife.  We will be brother and sister in Christ, completed as His bride.

We cannot begin to understand heaven until we go there.  I  know it’s the total opposite of hell.  I knew a person who said. “When I die; I am going to split hell wide open and party through out eternity.”  Oh my; that’s such a lie of how it will be. Eternity apart from God, in total darkness; thirsty and parched forever, wishing you could die; even though unable to do so.  Ir’s such a stark contrast to heaven, where the Light of the World resides.

That’s why we must tell the good news to everyone we know. The choice is totally theirs. God tells us in His Word:  “Choose you this day whom you will serve.”  “Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord and I will say to them, Depart from Me, you who works iniquity, I never knew you.”  Many will have a “form of godliness denying the power therein.”

The Bible says, “Even the elite will be deceived.”  Deceived how?  Into thinking they are ok.  They haven’t murdered anyone. They haven’t stolen anything; so surely God will allow them into His kingdom. “Unless a man be born again, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father except by Me.”  We’ve all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.  If you’ve had a bad thought, you’ve sinned.  If you’ve lusted after a person of the opposite sex, you have sinned.  There’s only one way.  We must repent of our sins and ask Jesus into our hearts; in order to be saved and restored.  In order to enter the kingdom of heaven, we must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Prayer in Motion:

Dear God, I pray You will help me to take Salvation seriously.  It is not just living “a good life.”  I pray for those who do not have a personal relationship with You Lord Jesus, that today would be the day of their salvation.  It is not Your will for any man to perish without You but for all to come to repentance.  Oh God, thank You for preparing a place for me.  In Jesus Name I pray.  Amen.
