Many of us have heard about this beautiful place called “Heaven,” but what do we really know? The Bible offers solid answers, painting a picture of life in Eternity. And, contrary to many artists’ depictions, it does not include sitting on clouds playing harps! In a nutshell, the Biblical evidence points to an eternal life much like the physical ones we live now. In the “heaven life,” the trials and tribulations that cause fear, jealousy, hatred, sickness and death are replaced with love, joy, peace and abundance. A world is revealed where one works because they enjoy working, but not for need of a paycheck, and a place where the lion chases the lamb, simply because they are having fun. Got the picture?
I like to think of death this way: “The end of the road is not necessarily the end of the road.” We can continue down “the eternal life road” to a perfect world when we ask the Man at the roadblock to let us through.
I do not recommend the detour!
