How Heaven Is Like, Part 2

HeavenThe last two chapters of the Bible’s Book of Revelation describe Heaven as a gigantic golden city nearly 1,500 miles wide, 1,500 miles long, and 1,500 miles high! (See Revelation 21:16.) That’s enough floor space to cover half of the United States or most of Western Europe, reaching nearly 1,500 miles into space! As you can imagine, if you divide it into multiple floor levels, a space this massive can house billions of people, with room to spare!

The Bible tells us that this wonderful heavenly habitation of God will someday come to earth, and that God will dwell with man. It will be like God moving over right into our neighborhood to live with us! And those who love God and have received His love in their hearts are going to live with Him in His wonderful golden city!

This may seem pretty far-fetched, or like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s true, foretold in a credible prophetic book — the Bible — which contains hundreds of detailed predictions that have already come to pass throughout history!

The Bible describes the city streets as being made of gold, with a wall encasing the city made of twelve different types of precious gems. We will have houses there, heavenly “mansions” where we can live with our families and loved ones, those who have also believed and received God and His love into their lives.

There’ll even be a great amusement park, with heavenly amphitheaters where we can hear heavenly music, a time travel center where we can go and review the famous events of history and see how they happened and what really took place, and many other centers of interest where we can learn more about the wonderful life that God has given us and how we can best use it to love Him and others.

You’ll have a supernatural body that will never get tired, although you can rest if you want to. You’ll never get hungry, although you can eat if you want to. And you’ll still be able to enjoy the many other senses and pleasures that we relish here on earth, such as touch, smell, sight and even lovemaking — except that each of these things will be enhanced beyond what you have ever experienced before. You’ll even be able to fly!

So as you can see, life in Heaven is a lot like that which we have on earth, except of course it’s so much better! It’s a place that is alive, vibrant, warm, happy, where you’ll be able to enjoy all the pleasures that you’ve ever wanted, and where all the dreams you’ve dreamed will come true! It’s as if you took life here on earth and removed all the bad things and added a lot of love, joy, peace, happiness and fulfillment. – That’s Heaven!

Maybe by now you’re wondering how you can make sure you will be able to live in such a wonderful place as Heaven, once your time on earth is over. Perhaps you’ve been told that only those who are very good get to go to Heaven. You may feel that excludes you, since you know you’ve made mistakes, and have at times done things that were wrong, unloving and hurtful.

Well, I have good news for you! Anybody can get a free entrance ticket to Heaven! Anybody can be taken into the arms of love and receive the joy, fulfillment and everlasting love that God wants to give each of us, both here and in the life to come — and that includes you! It doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done. It doesn’t matter how good or how bad you are — because none of us can be good enough to earn a place in Heaven.

The Bible says that only those who are perfect can earn a place in Heaven. But since none of us are perfect, none of us deserve to go there through our own merit. That’s why God sent His Son, Jesus, to this earth 2,000 years ago. Jesus paid our way by dying for our sins, and so, through simply believing in Him as our Savior, we can be sure of a place in Heaven. That relieves us of the burden of having to be good enough to go to Heaven, which we couldn’t do anyway, because after all, we’re only human. Jesus took our burden for us, and therefore all we have to do is believe and receive the gift of salvation that He wants to give us.

He’s opened the door for you to the life beyond, and all you have to do is walk through it by believing. You can’t earn it, neither can you be too bad for it, because Jesus loves you just the way you are. He knows you, and He knows what’s inside of you and everything you’ve done, even your deepest secrets. He knows it all, but He loves you anyway, because His love is infinite.

His love is so far beyond anything that we can understand or see with our eyes here on earth. His love can fix any mistake, right any wrong, fill any emptiness and heal any pain or hurt. His love can bring joy where there was sorrow, laughter where there was pain, and fulfillment where there was uselessness and misery.

He wants to give you all these things now, here on this earth, plus a place in Heaven when your time here is done. He longs for you and your loved ones to be united and happy forever with Him, and that’s why He gave His life for you. He’s reaching out to you with this gift now. Just take His love! Take it now, take it today!

You can receive His love and a place in Heaven by simply praying this little prayer: “Dear Jesus, I believe that You love me, and that You came for love and died for me so that I can be free, so that I could live in Heaven for eternity. I ask You to give me this gift of Your love now. Fill the emptiness in my life and give me fulfillment and happiness. Help me to give this same love to others, so that they can be happy too. I accept Your gift of my reservation in Heaven.”

There! It’s just that simple! All you had to do was open your heart, and Jesus is there now, and He’ll be with you forever. You can never lose Him! You’ve got a permanent reservation in Heaven that can never be canceled!

God has now placed this gift of love in your heart, and whenever you need Him, you can call out to Him, and He’ll help you with His love.

Although it was a free gift, now that you have His love in your heart, He wants you to do what you can to love others, and to pass on the love He has given you so that others can also experience joy in their lives — both here and in Heaven also!

Will you show love to others? Will you do what you can to make their lives better, even if it’s only giving a smile, saying a kind word or lending a helping hand? Simple deeds of love and kindness go a long way and can make such a difference in someone’s life. Now that you have a little bit of Heaven in your heart, help put a little bit of Heaven in someone else’s heart today.

God loves you, and He’s looking forward to living with you in Heaven for eternity! And so am I! I’ll see you there!
