What’s Up With Heaven?
Shadow Mountain Community
For millennia, humans have looked up into the sky and wondered what lies ahead of them in the afterlife. Our souls innately desire an answer to what is perhaps life's greatest mystery: that which awaits us when we walk through the door into the world beyond. But God doesn't conceal the details about your eternal resting place.
Look in God's Word and you'll find a glimpse into heaven. Streets brighter than gold, God's radiant throne, and the eternal home of Jesus Christ. All the magnificent details are written in the pages of Scripture.
What heaven will look like, how your soul will get there, if you'll be reunited with loved ones once you arrive, and how your body will appear for eternity. That is but just a sliver of what we can know about eternity, which promises to be a place beyond your wildest dreams.
All you have to do is open the Bible and you'll find that inside God is revealing the mysteries of heaven. Now, here is your host and Bible teacher, Dr. David Jeremiah.
Dr. David Jeremiah: Heaven is one of those biblical words that made its way into our cultural conversation. Whether someone is enjoying a relaxing day at the beach or a good cup of coffee, if they say, "This is just heavenly," we know what they mean.
Unfortunately, some people use the word "heaven" without realizing it's a literal place.
I've titled today's message, "What's up with Heaven?" in order to separate fact from fallacy when it comes to the eternal home God has prepared for those who love him. So if you want to know what the Bible says about heaven, where it is, what it's like, what people will do in heaven, and how to get there, then you'll want to stay tuned for the first message in "Revealing the Mysteries of Heaven."
Jesus will appear, I believe, in heaven throughout eternity as the Lamb of God and our Redeemer. And he will carry with him throughout eternity the scars of our redemption. And when we see Jesus, heaven will really be heaven.
