What is Heaven like; what do we know about Heaven?

  • We are told there are great multitudes in heaven: angels worshipping God and serving him. (Nehemiah 9:6, Mark 9:32).
  • Jesus promised his disciples that he was going to prepare a place for them. (John 14:2) and all Christians are promised a place in heaven, after this life (1 Peter 1:4).
  • Jesus told us that the angels in heaven rejoice over the one sinner who repents (Luke 15:7,10); to rejoice means to celebrate, to have a party. There’s going to much fun and laughter in paradise.
  • The Bible says, in heaven we will be like Jesus. (1 John 3:2). In heaven we’ll have new spiritual bodies that won’t be limited by the laws of nature. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will all be ‘super heroes’ but our bodies will be different and more capable than our earthly body.
  • In heaven we will be in God’s presence where there will be joy forever.
  • And in heaven we shall meet with all those who have trusted Jesus in this life, and even though we will have different bodies we will see friends and loved ones again.
