Do not let your heart be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me.
In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? John 14:1 – 2
Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said, “In heaven, all the interesting people are missing.” That’s often how the world views heaven; as irrelevant, vague and uninteresting. According to the Bible, of course, heaven is none of those things. It is a real place, a home, a paradise, a city, a country, a new earth, a prepared place for prepared people. No one there will be bored or boring.
“If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to Myself, so that where I am you may also be. And you know the way to where I am going.” Thomas said to Him, “Master, we don’t know where You are going. How can we know the way?”
Yeshua said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life! No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:3 – 6)
Yet many believers are confused about heaven, prone to view it as a never ending service or a vapory world with harps and halos. But heaven is mentioned more than 500 times in the Bible, and the information is designed to fill us with anticipation. Our Messiah is in heaven; our relationships are there with those who have gone before us prepared; our resources are there, the investments we’ve made in eternity; our residence is in heaven, our rewards and riches. Think about that often, and do not let your heart be troubled. Messiah has gone to prepare a place for us and will soon come again, that where He is we may be also!
Heaven is not a figment of our imagination. It is not a feeling or emotion. It is not the “Beautiful Aisle of something.” It is a prepared place for prepared people. Are you prepared?
