"What is Heaven Like?" by Evang. Ayomide




Topic: What is Heaven Like?
Text: Revelations 21:1-8, 2 Corinthians 5:1

Introduction:
God created the Heaven and the earth in the beginning (Genesis 1:1). According to the Jewish notion, there are three heavens (2Corinthians 12:2). The first heaven is the air or atmosphere, where clouds gather and birds fly (Genesis 2:19; Lamentations 4:19). The second is the firmament, in which the sun, moon and stars are fixed (Jeremiah 8:2; Matthew 24:29). The third Heaven is the "The heaven of heavens" (Deuteronomy 10:14): the home or throne of God and His angels, the invisible realm of holiness and happiness; the home of the children of God. Heaven is eternal (2Corinthians 5:1) and it is a prepared place for a prepared people - John 14:2.


Text Review: Revelation 21:1-8
  God's Dwelling Place
• Where the Almighty God is dwelling, Nothing ungodly can ever be there. For instance: Liars and ungodly, Idolaters, Sorcerers, whoremongers, murderers, abominable, fearful, unbelievers are all ungodly. These categories of people will have their own places of abode in which the lake of fire. - Revelations 21:8.

• Certain unpleasant behaviour or responses will not be found in the abode of God because nobody would need them there. For instance: there will not be death there because God is Everlasting. (Isaiah 40:28; 9:6). There will not be sorrow therefore crying will be useless there. There, will not be tears also (Revelations 21:4). These emotional expressions especially, sorrow, crying and tears will have a common place in the lake of fire where the occupants will need them.

• Another joyful news about heaven is that God himself will be there with his people (Revelations 21:3). Therefore, no Satan, demon, trial or temptation will sneak in. definitely, if Satan cannot come into heaven, then we do not need doctors to cure sickness or lawyer to adjudicate cases; we do not need judges too to sentence any nor police to arrest criminals.

• There is no lack in heaven because those who make it will inherit ALL THINGS (Revelations 21:7). All things including life and godliness. - 2Peter 1:3; satisfaction ("I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of water of life freely. " - Revelations 21:6). Peace, Joy, etc. We all must be there.
