What Does The Bible Say Heaven Is Like?

Post by Glad E Olah on Sun Aug 28, 2016 6:20 am

I found the following link interesting to read especially this copy and paste:

http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/what-does-the-bible-say-heaven-is-like/

"Heaven Descends to the Earth

After the Kingdom of Heaven begins on earth, after Christ’s return, the New Jerusalem descends out of heaven and heaven, in the New Jerusalem, will then be on earth.  Revelation 21:1-2 describes this:  “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.”   The very tabernacle of God will be with humans then and heaven is any place where God is (Rev. 21:3).  All pain, suffering, and tears will absent there (Rev. 21:4).

John was carried away to heaven in Revelation chapter 21 and this chapter is perhaps the best description of heaven that we know of; at least the heaven that will be seen by those who are Christ’s today. "

Revelations is so mystical its hard to understand. I think much of its allegorical but its so difficult that many statements can only be ascribed in retrospect.
I have read the chapter but find it confusing and weird. Maybe it will unravel with the end arriving. ck in

The 'sea' that disappears is that dimension between Heaven and Earth.  When that is stripped away, the Earth will indeed become Heaven.

People who have near death experiences describe heaven as beautiful with colours that we do not have on earth and even the beautiful flowers make music. It's very different and there is a feeling of joy and God's love. Certainly their accounts are not as confusing as revelations.

Jesus ascended into Heaven, or was it into the heavens? Or the seventh heaven?
My understanding of the bible is that the sea is people. I know that the Lady in Revelations is the Church (All those who are redeemed and washed in the blood of Christ.)
Ron said, and it makes sense to me, that some of us will inhabit the New earth while those who were faithful unto Jehovah, those who died for Christ, such as the Apostles, will be in heaven. I could re-read his last messages to me and know for sure.

I don't believe, anyone on Earth truly knows for sure. Only those worthy of entering Heaven will ever know for sure, and I guess that is a good enough incentive to set our goals for that to be our final destination.

Amen to that Diane. We don't know for sure what Heaven is like.

We are bound by the Laws of the Earth- minirose pat :pray: ,Physics,chemistry,time and dimensions. God is not bound by any of these things and I think Heaven is beyond our imagination or experience.
There are some wonderful accounts of Heaven and the afterlife in Near Death Experience books with different colours to what we know and even the flowers singing praise to the Creator God. There are wonderful cities built of precious stones and all the animals being friendly and great Libraries full of information.
Not all of us make Heaven but its a goal to strive for and we need to follow the teachings of Christ to have half a chance.
