What do you imagine heaven to be like?
What heaven is like
1) There are new things and the former things have passed away
‘new heavens and a new earth’
… a bride who is a city dressed beautifully for her husband
… God is now dwelling with humanity
… no more death…or mourning …or crying .. or pain.
… water without cost is offered to the thirsty
2) The new place?
… it is a picture of the church
– 1 King 6:20… the holy of holies
… only for those who names are in the book of life.
… bountiful food and abundant provision for the bride of Christ in the new heavens.
… the curse is undone
… where we will see the face of God.
A final warning and invitation
For us today
1) Good at the front door of your house
… the divinity of Jesus
2) Keep going / trusting
3) Keep proclaiming
4) Be excited
1 Cor 2:9 “What no eye has seen what no ear has heard and what no human mind has conceived, the things God has prepared for those who love him”.
