The Reality Of Life After Death.
The Bible teaches that life continues after the physical death of the body. God created man with a natural, temporal body and an eternal soul. The soul of man consists of who we really are. It is the center of our mind, will and emotions. The Bible teaches that life is eternal. 1 John 2:25, 2 Corinthians 5:1
What Will Heaven Be Like?
The Bible refers to Heaven as being above the world, in that God looks down upon the earth and that when Jesus left this earth he was received "up into Heaven". Mark 16:19
Heaven will be a place of light, love, holiness, righteousness, worship, service, joy, peace and life eternally because Jesus the Redeemer will be there. The New Jerusalem will be the new capital of the universe and the place where the redeemed gather for worship and service. There will be no darkness, hate, sin, unrighteousness, sorrow, discord or death there. Without these things, it will be heaven indeed. What a wonderful and worthy reward of the God who redeemed us!
- It Is A Place of No More Thirst, Hunger, Sorrow, Pain or Death – Revelation 21:4
- Heaven Is A Place Where Nothing Can Be Corrupted – Matthew 6:20, Rev. 21:27
- It Is A Place Of Pleasures Forevermore – Psalm 16:11, 1 Corinthians 2:9
- It Will Be A Place Of Worship – Revelation 15:4
- It Will Be A Place Of Constant Illumination – Revelation 21:23.
Heaven is clearly described in the Bible as an actual place. It is not a feeling or a state of mind. When people refer to Heaven as being on earth they are partially correct in that we can experience a personal relationship with God while we are still alive. This is experiencing some of what is in store for those who will go to Heaven when they die.
What Is Needed To Enter Into The Gates Of Heaven?
No one in Heaven will deserve to be there as result of any merit of his own. Because of this fact three will not be anyone boasting that he or she had earned the right to live in Heaven.
Choosing Heaven means choosing to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Such a relationship brings a foretaste of Heaven in this life, and an eternity of happiness. You can make your decision today!
