We speak and we view only in part because the afterlife is a place we have never been. Talking about heaven and hell is sort of like a person taking a vacation to a place he/she has never been before. Take Hawaii, for instance. I’ve never been there. I would love to go, and perhaps one day will get the opportunity. But now, I can only dream of what it will be like. I can only speak with those who have gone there before to catch just a glimpse of what my trip will be like. I can read vacation guides and travel brochures, but until I experience the reality of it, I can only know in part.

So it is with the afterlife. We can’t talk to anyone face to face who has ever been there. We can only read the information we have, and seek to understand something of what the afterlife will be like. The best information we have is in the Bible. So we must go there to learn what we can. And Jesus is the only one who has seen with eyes and heard with ears the reality of the afterlife.
