Heaven Is…

Heaven is a place of treasures. Mt.6:20  The Hebrew writer describes it as a better country. He.11:16 It is a place of full rest! 2Th.1:7; He.4:9  In Revelation 14:13, John wrote, “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.”  There will be no tears, death, sorrow, sickness or pain in heaven! Re.21:4

It is a such an exceedingly glorious place, that nothing we could lose in this life to obtain it would begin to compare with its blessing! 2Cr.4:17  It is when we will receive glory! Ps.73:24  It is a place where our bodies will be changed like unto Christ’s and will be incorruptible! 1Cr.15:52-53; 1Pt.1:4 Heaven is in the presence of God and so a place of eternal joy! Ps.16:11  It is place where we may share the glorious likeness or Christ! 1Jn.3:2

Heaven is a place that only those obedient to Christ may enjoy.  “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” Rv.22:14  It is the promised reward only to the faithful in Christ. Ro.8:1,14,18; Re.2:10  The faithful, those who enter heaven, are those whom Jesus says do the will of my Father which is heaven. Mt.7:21       HJS
