Heaven

Although Heaven is mentioned often in the Bible there’s only one instance where we have a glimpse of a description. In John 14:2 Jesus says: In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.

I suppose Jesus used this description because He wanted an example that His listeners could relate to. They were used to seeing palaces and mansions so He described Heaven as a building.

Some time ago, I came across another description of Heaven. This priest said in a sermon that when we die and meet God, He will sit us on His lap like a little child and He will show us our life all over again. Just like a movie. There, we will see all the good and the bad we have done. All the opportunities we missed when we could have helped others less fortunate than ourselves, all the hurt we have caused by what we have done or said, whether intentionally or not. And there, on His lap, will be our own Heaven or Hell.

Now imagine it is really so … Imagine seeing your whole life as a movie …

Imagine you are now a Film Director … what an opportunity you have to make sure your movie will have a happy ending !!!

  2. Good lesson! I now this many sound goofy, but the night before my last major surgery I almost died. For one beautiful but sadly infinitesimal moment I met the Lord. I did! An angel pulled me back to the land of the living before there was no return. One feeling that has stayed with me all this time is the fact that Jesus loves us more than anything. He is absolute pure agape love. You're gonna be happily shocked at how much He does love us. We probably will "see" our past lives at some point. However, there will be no pain or suffering with Him. I can't imagine Him ever doing anything hurtful to us, his children. That's my take. And it's made me bolder in witnessing for Him. No one must be allowed to experience eternity in damnation.
    Sorry, verbose today. Must be because it's almost Fall. *lol*
    Hope your day is blessed too! ~:)

    1. Thank you Sparky for sharing this with us. Much appreciated. You are welcome here always, as you know, and you can be as "verbose" as you wish. It is good to engage in conversation here and I welcome it.

      As you say, Sparky, God does love us more than we can imagine.

      God bless you and your family always.

  3. Hi Victor! (What a beautiful comment from Sparky!)
    Seeing my life while in the lap of God is a wonderful visual. I wonder how many times I'll be looking for a place to hide my face? But as I think I mentioned before, mercy first before anything. And in that, I will trust with all my heart.

    Sunday blessings my friend,
    Ceil

    1. You're so right Ceil. As we look back on our lives we'll certainly need His mercy.

      God bless you and yours.
