Our Home in Heaven is a Wonderful Place.
Jesus said, “There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so I would tell you plainly. That where I am there you will be also.”
Our home in heaven is prepared for everyone whose heart is right with God. The Apostle Peter spoke of heaven in 2 Peter 3:11-13: “Since everything round us is going to melt away, what holy, godly lives you should be living! You should look forward to that day and hurry it along – the day when God will set the heavens on firs and elements will melt away in the flames. But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world where everyone is right with God.”
Our home in heaven is more wonderful than we could ever imagine. The Apostle Paul wrote in I Corinthians 2:9, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”
John the Apostle wrote the Gospel of John, I, II and III John and also the book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible.
John was put on the remote Island of Patmos as punishment for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and rose from the dead. When John wrote the book of Revelation he was probably 90 years old.
The risen Christ appears to John and gives him a revelation of hope of eternal life and the hope of an eternal home in heaven.
John wrote in Revelation 21:3-4, “I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, ‘Look, the home of God is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will remove all of their sorrows, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its evils are gone forever.”
Think of it, “no more sorrow, or death or pain.” No more sickness, no more cancers. No more fighting, everyone will be at peace.
Assurance of Heaven
If you have Jesus in your heart, you have the assurance of eternal life in heaven. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.” John 14:6
The Apostle John in I John 5:11-13 – “And this is the testimony God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does ot have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”
Jesus makes it clear that if you have Jesus in your heart you have eternal life.
The Bible says that Jesus knocks at the door of every person’s heart. All who humble themselves to listen and hear the knock and invites Jesus into their heart and life, Jesus comes in and forgives sin and gives eternal life.
Jesus gives us a choice to receive Him or reject Him. Jesus does not force His well into anyone’s life. Jesus said, He stands at the door of your heart and knocks. If you hear His voice and open the door He will come in. Rev. 3:20
We invite Jesus by confessing our sin and admitting that we are a sinner and need God’s forgiveness. Jesus can only forgive
