Just Imagine Heaven
Heavenly images? No one knows what Heaven will look like. One thing you can be sure of is that it will be more beautiful than anything we can imagine.
But all we have for now is our imagination. And that’s OK. Imagination has gotten a bad rap in recent times. But when you really think about it, that’s how our brain works. When we think about anything we see pictures or images in our head.
We actually run movies between our ears all the time. We don’t see things in “list” or “datasheet” view. For example if I ask you to think about what is in your bedroom closet, can you see a picture of the items in your closet? You don’t see a list of items on a piece of paper. We use our imaginations every day in very constructive ways.
I like to imagine my dad in Heaven with Jesus. I have a picture of them together on my wall. I can see it right now between my ears. Is Heaven real? Yes. But then I believe in Jesus.
Jesus said there is a Heaven. Jesus actually left his heavenly kingdom to come down to earth to give us a cure from the disease of sin so that if we just believe what he told us we can spend eternity in Heaven with him…just the way he always intended for us to do.
It started in the Garden of Eden. God originally intended for us to live with him in the Garden and he still intends for us to live with him. Heaven or the Garden of Eden…”a rose by any other name”… Jesus also said he was going to prepare a place for us. Yes and when he comes back he will bring it with him.
It says in Revelation that Jesus will create a new Heaven and a new Earth. That’s good news for me. It’s great to know that no matter what might happen to us here in this brief moment we have on Earth, we will all be back together again in Heaven. No more tears, no more sorrows. No disease, no hunger.
