|What does the Bible say about Heaven? Who will go to Heaven? Will married people still be married when they get to God's Kingdom? Has God revealed the facts about Heaven in the Bible?
These doctrines of Jesus, which are written in the Holy Bible, have the true answer!
Matthew 3:2 “Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand!”
Psalm 103:9 The LORD has established His throne in Heaven, And His Kingdom rules over all.
John 3:13 (Jesus said) “No one has ascended to Heaven but He who came down from Heave, that is, the Son of Man who is in Heaven.”
John 6:32-35 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from Heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from Heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from Heaven and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.” And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life.”
Luke 24:50-51 And He (Jesus) led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into Heaven.
Acts 1:11 This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into Heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into Heaven.”
Hebrews 4:14-15 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in Heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealedin the last time.
Psalm 11:4 The LORD is in His holy temple, The LORD’s throne is in Heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.
Psalm 14:2 The LORD looks down from Heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
Matthew 18:3 “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Matthew 5:10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Luke 6:22-24 (Jesus said) “Blessed are you when men hate you, And when they exclude you, And revile you, and cast out your name as evil, For the Son of Man’s sake. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! For indeed your reward is great in Heaven, For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets. But woe to you who are rich, For you have received your consolation.”
Matthew 19:13 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Hebrews 11:13-14 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.
1 Peter 2:11 ...I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts...
Philippians 3:20 For our citizenship is in Heaven...
Revelation 21:7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
Romans 8:19-23 ...the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Mark 12:25 For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in Heaven.
Matthew 24:35 (Jesus said) Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
Isaiah 34:4 All the host of heaven shall be dissolved, And the heavens shall be rolled up like a scroll;
2 Peter 3:11-13 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Since Jesus went to prepare a place for us - what did He prepare?
Isaiah 65:17 For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.
Revelation 21:1-2 Now I saw a new Heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Hebrews 12:22-24 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant…
Revelation 21:9-11 ...one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God.
What does the great city, holy Jerusalem, KINGDOM of Heaven look like?
Revelation 21:11-27 Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west. Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
2 Chronicles 6:18 ...will God indeed dwell with men on the earth?
John 14:23 (Jesus said) ...“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
Revelation 21:3-4 He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
Revelation 3:12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of Heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
Are you assured of eternal salvation? Did you know that true followers of Jesus are assured of where they'll spend eternity?
2 Timothy 4:18 And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly Kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen!
Do Not Be Deceived!
Matthew 25:1-13 (Jesus said) ... the Kingdom of Heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
Did you know that New Jerusalem is God's eternal Kingdom? Will you spend eternity in Jesus' new Kingdom on earth? Are you prepared for Jesus to return?
