Heaven: (It will be glorious! (click for more) “Pastor, I have peace now…”

Gerald Delaney closed his eyes.

“The Lord is welcoming me home. Oh, it is glorious! Heaven is all love, light, peace, and joy. Look there… over there under that beautiful tree. Among the lilies…”

“I see a young woman with a newborn baby. They are both laughing.”

Suddenly, Gerald laughed aloud . “Ha, ha ha!”

“They are so very, very happy together. I have never seen such joy!”


Joh 14:2-3, Rev 21:10-11, 18, 21-23, 4, 2Co 4:14, 2Co 5:1,8, Phi 3:20-21:

“In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”


And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

The wall was built of jasper, while the city was pure gold, clear as glass.

And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass. And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.


...knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence.

For we know that if the tent, which is our earthly home, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.


But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.



It is our hope – nay- it is His promise and it is our claim. We shall have a new body, one that never hurts or decays. We shall have a new home, one in the presence of the Savior, which is eternal.

Words cannot describe the beauty of Heaven. Our minds cannot fully understand or comprehend the indescribable joy! It is forever.


What is your hope for eternity?
