What Does GOD Have to Say?
Heaven, Chapter 16
God’s Home; God’s children’s future, eternal dwelling place.
Read Revelation chapters 21 & 22 in our Revelation commentary.
Matthew 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
“Treasures in Heaven” are the things you do for Jesus; for the cause of Christ. They will be there waiting for you when you arrive. NO one can take spiritual treasures away from you, and they are eternal whereas possessions we gather here on Earth will not last.
Luke 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
If you know Jesus as Saviour and Lord, your name is “written in Heaven.”
John 14:2-3 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
Many times I have read about God’s Home, Heaven. I simply cannot comprehend it. It is too
wonderful to put into words! It may sound strange, but I can get a better picture of Heaven while reading about Hell! I know Hell is the exact opposite of Heaven.Does that make sense to you? If you know Jesus; He says He is preparing a place for YOU! He also says He shall come and get us, and we shall be with Him forever! Do you believe Him?
1 Peter 1:3-5Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
How I love this verse! It speaks so much to me!
To an inheritance . . . eternal life is the inheritance of TRUE believers (Eph. 1:18) and elsewhere, as being given NOT as wages to hirelings, but as a GIFT (Rom.6:23; Eph.2:8), an inheritance to children born of God, and adopted by Him.
Incorruptible . . . immortal, everlasting, which being once possessed, CANNOT be taken away, nor pass over to others. . . .
Once saved, always saved!
And undefiled . . . being pure in itself, and having nothing to offend them that enjoy it; and incapable of any pollution or defilement, contrary to what is said of the land of Canaan, the earthly inheritance of the Israelites, (Jer. 2:7; Eze. 36:17).
And that fadeth not away . . . properly applies to that which does not fade or wither, in contrast to a beautiful flower that fades. It means that it is enduring, and is applied to the future inheritance of the saints to describe its permanence in all its brilliance and splendor, in contrast with the fading beauty of all that is earthly. The idea here, mean never ending, in contrast with decay. The crown of glory, though worn for millions of ages, will NEVER be dimmed; the golden streets will NEVER lose their luster; the flowers that bloom on the banks of the river of life will always be as rich in vibrant color, and just as fragrant, as when we first beheld them. . . . WOW!!! Do you see why I love this verse?
Reserved in heaven for you . . . this inheritance is appointed to us, and kept by One who can make it sure to us, and who will certainly bestow it upon us. (Mat.25:34; John 14:2; Col.1:5; Heb.9:15). My friend, your mansion has YOUR name on it! Reserved; laid up (Col. 1:5; 2Tim. 4:8); secured for the heirs, though not yet possessed by them.
In heaven . . . therefore safe, and out of the reach of enemies (Mat.6:19-21). This is opposed to the uncertain condition of earthly possessions, such as Canaan was.
I will include the following poem that God gave me about our "inheritance."
NO NEED FOR REPAIRS
All our needs shall be filled in eternity,
Our God shall watch o’er us, so lovingly.
The tree of life, its fruit shall always bear,
For our eternal Father, truly cares.
Our mansion in Heav’n, shall need no repair,
Thru’ all eternity, ‘twill show no wear.
The street of pure gold shall never be worn,
‘Twill always be bright; never look forlorn.
Never any dimness in Heaven’s Lights,
The unfailing Power, shall always be bright.
The City’s walls, shall never shift or fall,
No damage or harm shall ever befall.
The gates of the City shall never sag,
No repairs needed, for they’ll never drag.
As I humbly enter, Thy majestic Presence,
Thy awesomeness, I gratefully reverence.
What an amazing Place, Heaven shall be,
‘Twill be Perfection, for eternity.
No repairs needed; for nothing shall fail,
Only peace, joy and goodness shall prevail.
Are you going to this marvelous Place?
Will you meet our Saviour there, Face to face?
God gives the Gift of Heaven, to all who believe,
Accept Christ, and Heaven, you shall receive.

If you know Jesus as your Saviour; God has reserved ETERNAL LIFE, in Heaven, for YOU! And because of His majestic power, He will make SURE you arrive there! One of those “mansions” is also reserved for YOU! No one, or nothing can take it away from you! God plainly states: “It’s YOURS.”
Because of Jesus, those of us who turn to Him in faith, have wondrous, eternal joy ahead.
God really doesn’t ask much of us --- except to BELIEVE and TRUST Him and His Word.
2 Cor. 5:1For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
Many people do not believe in bodily resurrection. The Bible very clearly states Christians shall receive new, glorious bodies.
Philippians 3:20-21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. (KJV) . . . (Also 1 Co.15:42-44).We will have bodies, like Jesus, that will never again sin, for there will be NO sin in Heaven (Rev.21:27). Will you be there?
