That includes heaven.
I read fire comes down from heaven several times. Rain and hail and snow are stored in heaven storerooms. There's food in heaven. There are trees and animals and Jesus (who has a resurrected body). There are windows in heaven (I saw one of those today -- seriously. It was pretty cool).
What does all this mean?
It means Heaven is a whole lot more substantial than we imagine it is. All that wispy shadowy kind of heaven is not what God says heaven is like. We earth-dwellers are living in the wispy place, the shadowlands (as C.S. Lewis called them). Nothing on this earth is permanent. In fact, science tells us this. Atoms and molecules are constantly in motion -- that includes the ones we're all made of. Things that are solid are really not.
In heaven everything will be real and substantial and will have absolutely no decay.
If we think about heaven more, how might we live differently on this earth?
God is good. God is good. God is good!
Maybe this means that we don't have to let this life get us down when it doesn't go well. We ought not be surprised when it doesn't go well. We probably should be happily surprised when it does go well.
Think about heaven. Take a Bible with a concordance and start reading all the references to heaven. Or look them up online. You will be amazed what it says is in heaven.
Heaven isn't a wispy white place. it isn't just a big light. It isn't some place where we all just float on clouds and play harps. Where did we come up with that? That isn't in the Bible whatsoever.
Heaven will be an adventure unlike any other we can find outselves on. Use your imagination. You won't be able to imagine anything beyond heaven.
Will you be going there?
I sure hope so.
You can know you know -- just ask Jesus to come into your life. He's waiting to hear from you!
