This is what God has prepared for those who love him, for all who humble themselves, repent and put their trust in Jesus and his death as payment for their sin? God not only saves FROM hell but FOR heaven.
If the things we see in this world show God as indescribable, incomparable, awesome, amazing, then what will it be like in heaven. The human mind struggles to describe and understand the matchless power of God who created this world out of nothing and who invites us to share eternity with him in heaven!
Welcome to Heaven
Can you imagine being welcomed by the one who created the universe, gave you life and loved you so much, he was prepared to die on a cross for the sin YOU committed against HIM? He did this becasue you were created for a relationship with him and you were of such great worth in his sight, that he would die for you so that he might share his love and the glories of heaven with you, forever!
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16)".
On one occasion during his earthly ministry, Jesus said to those who had repented and put their trust in him, " Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (1 John 14:1-3)".
In the few pages on this website about heaven, you will see just what the Bible says about God's promises to those who enter heaven. You will see an amazing vision of heaven and also a vision of Jesus.
As you read this description, please note that while it is impossible to fully comprehend either the terrors of hell or the glories of heaven from the written word, God has given us a glimpse... and what we see and begin to understand in the picture is mind blowing. It is a different reality, a different world, a different dimension, a different level of existence.
Please remember also, God's love for you is not just about saving you FROM the the hell you deserve (Romans 6:23) but saving you FOR heaven you do not deserve (Romans 6:23). He loves you that much.
God offers us grace and mercy. Through his grace (God's Riches At Christ's Expese) he offers us what we don't deserve - HEAVEN. Through his mercy he does not give us what we do deserve - HELL.
To see if you deserve hell please do the Good Person Test. Take a moment to see yourself through the eyes of the one who will judge you after you die. The Bible says, "It is appointed unto man, once to die and then the judgement (Hebrews 9:27)." Judgement will not take place based on man's flawed and imperfect laws but by the holiness, righteousness, truth and perfect justice of almighty God.
“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.” - Spurgeon
