What Heaven Will Be Like
What Heaven Will Be Like
This information is for people who think they are going to heaven, who think their good deeds will outweigh their bad deeds and that God will therefore grant them entrance into His eternal kingdom. Many such people will want to run out of heaven, since it will be so foreign to them and to their way of thinking. They will want to run from the King of Heaven if their sins have not been forgiven and if their hearts have not been supernaturally changed.
This is what it will be like for those who end up in heaven:
BEAUTIFUL FELLOWSHIP with their blessed Redeemer – Jesus Christ – who suffered and died for all their awful sins.
EXTREME JOY & GLADNESS that there will be no sin in them or around them any longer, no more taking of our Lord’s name in vain, no more ungodly thoughts or speech or actions.
WONDERFUL COMPANIONSHIP with all the godly saints who died before them, who love God and His laws as they do and who hate sin as God hates it.
AWE & WONDER for the holiest Being in the Universe, God Almighty, the Alpha and Omega, the Lord of Hosts, the King Of Glory, who did something for man that man could never do for himself, pay the awful penalty for sin that we could only pay if we were to spend eternity in hell.
IMMENSE GRATITUDE for God’s grace and mercy for having saved them from eternal wrath in Hell at such a terrible price to Himself – the sacrifice of His beloved Son, Jesus.
PREOCCUPATION WITH BEING IN THE PRESENCE OF such a holy, righteous, and sinless Creator who came up with such a glorious plan of salvation that showed His love and mercy in the most powerful way imaginable.
PRAISE, WORSHIP AND SINGING to God about His incredible love for saved sinners like them.
UNENDING THANKFULNESS for the opportunity to serve and worship such a gracious God and Savior for all eternity.
Do you think you will want to be in a heaven like this?
Do you think God will want you there?
“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” [Revelation 6:9-17]
Friend, if God has not made you ready for heaven, to the point where you long to be in a sin free world and in permanent fellowship with a HOLY GOD who hates sin, then you will be among those mentioned above who will be screaming for the rocks to fall on you to hide you from God’s wrath. — RM Kane
Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
