What Will Heaven Be Like?
People have many wrong ideas about heaven based upon what bliss is to them.
People think heaven will be blissful because a loving wife and husband will be together forever. When in fact it will be bliss for the believer to be forever with Christ our Bridegroom celebrating the marriage supper of the Lamb.
People think heaven will be enjoying the great hunting ground in the sky where there is plenty of game and the fish are always biting. When in fact it will be bliss for the believer to forever worship around the throne of God.
People think heaven will be blissful because they will be on a permanent vacation. When in fact heaven will be blissful for the believer because they will “serve him day and night in his temple.” (Revelation 7:15)
Heaven will not be a continuation of carnal pleasures of the earth. Heaven will be the continuation and the perfection of the believer’s true joy on earth. Here the believer lives “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” (Hebrews 12:2)
In heaven we will still be looking but there we will see Him face to face. Here the believer looks forward to times of worship. In heaven we will continually worship Him that sits upon the throne forever and ever. If that is not blissful to you now, it won’t be blissful to you then unless the Lord does a work of grace in your heart.
