Have you ever just sat and thought about what Heaven would be like?
My tiny human imagination just can’t quite imagine how beautiful and glorious it will be, but I love to try.
We know that the Apostle John got a glimpse of Jesus in His heavenly glory and was so overwhelmed that he fell at his feet as though dead.
Heaven will be perfect. There will be no more tears, no more pain, and no more sorrow. Sin and decay will not enter its gates. And we will recognize our loved ones and they will recognize us. We won’t miss our old lives at all.
Revelation 21:4 says,
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Imagine a city filled with brilliant and costly stone. It will be Eden restored. And the best thing will be we will be face to face with Jesus and God for all eternity.
Revelation 21: 1-5 says,
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
As the song I Can Only Imagine says,
Surrounded by Your glory,
What will my heart feel,
Will I dance for you Jesus,
Or in awe of You be still,
Will I stand in your presence,
Or to my knees will I fall,
Will I sing hallelujah,
Will I be able to speak at all,
I can only imagine.
I can only imagine.
All the best…
