THINGS IN HEAVEN
*First there will be plenty of room/space.
Jesus said: “In My Father’s house are many rooms.” John 14:2 Some versions say, “Mansions.” Now the idea is not separate quarters for everyone to dwell in and have their own personal or private area but a vast realm where everyone who enters can have a habitation forever together with all who love the Lord.
*Second there will be “Treasures.”
Jesus said: “Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…” Matthew 6:20 Now there are many things that we could assume or speculate about these“Treasures” but the one thing we can know for certain is that they will never be destroyed or stolen from us.
*Third there won’t be things made by human hands.
Paul wrote: “We have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” 2 Corinthians 5:1 The “Guarantee” of this is “The Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 5:5
*Fourth there things will be “Transformed.”
Paul wrote: “Our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we wait for our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like His glorious body…” Philippians 3:20-21 Think, of all the fuss we make over our physical bodies but in heaven we won’t give them a thought because Jesus will make them incredible and new.
*Fifth there we will see special things like the “Scroll.”
John wrote: “I saw in the right hand of Him who was seated on the throne a scroll…” Revelation 5:1 When John first saw it the “Scroll” was sealed but when we see it the Scroll” will be opened because Jesus has made it so!
*Sixth there things will be brand new.
John wrote: “I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.” Revelation 21:1Heaven won’t be the same old routine but will be brand new in every way.
*Seventh there will be things that only heaven can posses.
John wrote: “The river of the water of life” and “The tree of life…” Revelation 22:1-2 There will be nothing that is “Accursed.”
