What is heaven like? Is there really a heaven?
Q: “Is there truly a Heaven? How is paradise and where is it?”
our A: Yes, there truly is a Heaven.
What a great many people call “Heaven” is really an unceasing city which the Bible calls the “new Jerusalem.”1 It will be terrific. As an inspecting, here is the thing that paradise will resemble.
A waterway, unmistakable, will spill out of the royal position of God and of the Lamb [Jesus] down the center of the city. On every side of the stream there will be a tree of life, yielding twelve sorts of natural product consistently. The avenues will be immaculate gold, as straightforward glass. The dividers of the city will be decorated with each sort of gem, emerald, onyx, amethyst, topaz, and so forth. There will be no requirement for a sun or moon, and no requirement for a sanctuary or church. The nearness of the Lord will be its light.2
Be that as it may, the genuine magnificence of paradise is this:
“Presently the home of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his kin, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe each tear from their eyes. There will be no more demise or grieving or crying or torment, for the old request of things has passed away…I am making everything new.”3
Heaven has a place with Jesus. He made it. “For by him all things were made, in paradise and on earth, obvious and invisible…all things were made through him and for him.”4
In spite of the fact that Jesus at first went to the earth as a Savior, he will one day sit as Judge. All individuals will encounter a real revival from the dead, and all will show up before the judgment seat of Christ.5
So it may be useful to see what Jesus said in regards to how a man gets to paradise.
Many individuals believe it’s by carrying on with an admirable life, or if nothing else attempting to maintain a strategic distance from extraordinary sins like murder.
However this is what Jesus said in regards to getting to paradise. “…unless your nobility surpasses that of the recorders and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of paradise.” The copyists and Pharisees were the appreciated religious models. They were the great individuals, the “blessed” individuals!
Jesus reaffirmed what the prophet Isaish said. Nobody is meriting paradise. Nobody is sufficient. That is not how we get to paradise. It is the reason Jesus came…so that we could have everlasting life.
What’s more, here is the means by which. Paradise is given to all who will have confidence in Jesus. “everybody who has faith in him won’t die however have endless life. For God did not send his Son into the world to denounce the world, yet to spare the world through him.”6
When we start an association with Jesus, it is a relationship that endures unceasingly. Our names are composed in his book of life. Jesus said, “whoever hears my assertion and trusts him who sent me has interminable life and won’t be judged however has traversed from death to life.”7
As to, it’s our choice now whether to react to Jesus and acknowledge his endowment of interminable life.
Jesus said, “For my Father’s will is that everybody who looks to the Son and has faith in him might have unceasing life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”8
We’re told in Scripture that in paradise there will be a huge number of individuals from each tribe, dialect, individuals and country who will have everlasting life in light of their confidence in Jesus.
What is believing in him?
It doesn’t mean simply trusting things about Jesus. There is a distinction between your trusting that Barack Obama was president of the United States, as opposed to knowing him by and by. Similarly, you may trust Jesus is God, while never having him in your life.
