Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared
for those who love Him.
for those who love Him.
1 Corinthians 2:9b
|25 Days of God Given Gifts|
I often tell my Sunday School children, . . . can you just imagine what heaven is going to be like? If God made the earth and all it's beauty in 6 days, Heaven is going to be beyond anything we can imagine. Just like today's verse tells us.
Doesn't it seem as if these birds are flying straight from heaven to tell us good news. Straight from God ~ that heaven is real and a place so wonderful it defies description? Where streets are made of gold, music more beautiful then anything we've ever heard, all sadness wiped away, no more tears or pain, a perfect body, where everything in our minds will be made clear, we will understand. A place of perfect peace. A place where there is no night and no need of the sun, as God is the light. I take comfort in knowing that some of my family members are already there, and I will join them someday.
Author C.S. Lewis had this to say about heaven:
Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.
Here are just some of the facts about heaven found in Revelation chapter 21. I'd encourage you to read it for yourself.
- The foundation of Heaven is made of 12 different layers of precious stones
- The names of the 12 disciples are written on each layer of the foundation
- There are 12 gates, each consists of one huge pearl
- Each of those 12 gates have the name of one of the tribes of Israel
- The streets are of pure gold
When I look at my own wedding band which consists of gold, diamonds, and a sapphire, I can't help but reflect how it pales in comparison to the jewels in heaven. I would imagine the layers of heaven are precious stones in their purest form. We literally have no idea how magnificent it will be.
