The Glories of Heaven

And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them.” - Revelation 21:3

Just as there is a hell to avoid, there is a heaven to gain. John 6 says that Jesus came from heaven. Luke 24 tells us that Jesus was received back up into heaven. The Bible tells us that believers’ names are written down in heaven. For believers, heaven is the place of highest joys and pleasures. Heaven is a state of being. It’s a very state of existence, of perfect peace and endless blessedness.

But heaven is not just a state of being. Heaven is also a place; it’s a literal, physical place. That’s why God raised Jesus in a literal, physical body. He left here in a literal, physical body to go to a literal, physical heaven.

Heaven is a place of increased knowledge. This is one thing that thrills me the most. On this earth we have severely limited knowledge, but in heaven our minds will be perfected. We will have increased capacity to take in the infinite beauties, glories, wonders, and wisdom of God, which will bring us great pleasures.

Heaven is a place of perfect holiness. All of the annoyances and distresses of sin that we have in this world will be banished. We will dwell in perfect purity. Heaven is also a place of perfect love. Hatred is everywhere in this world. Hatred thrives in every corner, but in heaven there will be the undisturbed reign of holy love.

And hallelujah! Heaven is a place of perfect rest. Now a few of you think that God ordained the church service as your rest time, but this is not an adult nursery. You are to be studious and diligent to receive the preaching of the word. You are to work at receiving the word the same way I work to study and present the word. It is a two-way street – preaching and receiving the word of God. Here, we toil and labor and become fatigued. But as Hebrews 4:9 says, “There remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.” Amen.
