The Reality of Heaven
Within the church the subject of Heaven brings out both speculation and controversy, but neither have to be if the truth of Heaven is gathered from the scripture. The Bible teaches the truth as well as the reality of Heaven, now and hereafter. Heaven is the dwelling place of God and the seat of His Kingdom. The plan of God for eternity is to have a place for all His people to live forever. Jesus came to the earth in order to prepare mankind for The Kingdom of God. We find the ideal king for God’s Kingdom in His Son, Jesus. God became flesh and dwelt upon the earth in the person of Jesus. On the cross a sacrifice was given once and for all. By faith in that sacrifice (Jesus) we have forgiveness of sin. Because of the forgiveness of sin a person is able to become a citizen in the Kingdom of God. By the means of forgiveness great crowds from all nations are being prepared for a place called Heaven. Death is a reality, and so is eternity. Prepare now for death and eternity by accepting God’s gift of forgiveness. Receive Jesus as Lord and Savior in order to be prepared.
