Well, if God has His way about it, you will spend eternity with Him; no more tears, no more pain, just joy, love and accomplishing great things with God Himself! He created man to rule over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air and every living creature on earth, and earth itself! He is restoring our authority in Him and we will rule and reign with Him for eternity. His children will live in His presence, in Heaven after they die on this earth, and come back with Him to rule on this earth.
1 Corinthians 2:7-9 But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as it is written,” What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”
Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
So what is heaven like?
John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?
Revelation 5:9-13 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are You to take the scroll and to open its seals, for You were slain, and by Your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and You have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.” Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” Revelation 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Revelation 22:1-5 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His servants will worship Him. They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun.
Who is going to get you there?
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
Acts 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith,…not by works lest any man boast.
Out of all the thousands of religions known to man, Christianity is the only one who’s God came to us, to save us.
Philippians 2:6-11 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage; rather, He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled himself by becoming obedient to death – even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Why did HE come?
He came because all had sinned and come short of the Glory of God.
Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
Romans 5:8 But God commanded his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
What part do YOU play in receiving HIS free gift?
Believe, confess, and receive!
John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:
1 John 5:11-13 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
What happens now?
All the angels are rejoicing in heaven over you! You are now living in the Kingdom of God, a child of God restored to your true identity!
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Romans 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform and longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect will.
Jeremiah 29:11 God says, “I have plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
