What Do You Think Heaven Will Be Like ?


Have you ever wondered what heaven will be like? Did you try to picture it in your mind? It’s kind of like trying to describe to a person who has been blind since birth what a flower looks like, they have never seen one and cannot ever get that real picture of the flower in their mind . Just like us trying to picture what heaven will look like, when we have never been there. I only can tell you how it will be and not how it will look. Heaven will be a awesome place where we will be with God and Jesus, we will see Mary and all the saints, we will see the angles and all our family and friends if they are in heaven.



Heaven is a state of perfect peace and happiness and love that will last forever. But it is not the same peace and happiness and love that we know here on earth, because what we call peace here on earth turns out to be a state where we have less turmoil, less anxiety, less conflict then we usually do. We call this peace and we are thankful for it; we are glad to have the little peace we have because we are catching a glimpse of something glorious and unspeakably good that lies beyond the stars. The peace, happiness and love that we will have in heaven will be thousands of times greater then we know now here on earth. Because the peace, happiness and love in heaven will be pure and not contaminated with evil.

 

We do not know what peace is because the peace we have here on earth  is violated with so much that is opposite. We do not know what love is because love in this world is overshadowed by dislike, by separation, by hate. We do not know what goodness is because the goodness we know, even when it is real is contaminated with evil. We have only enjoyed a small taste of what the peace, happiness and love will be like in heaven. We have only seen a shadow of what peace will be like in heaven, we have only seen a flicker of what happiness will be like in heaven, and we have only had a spark of what love will be like in heaven. Heaven will be where you will experience peace, happiness and love 100% in their pure state from God.

 

We must pray daily for ourselves and others for the help we need to be able to be saved and enjoy the great rewards of everlasting life in heaven for all eternity. We have a taste of what hell is like  in this life with all the evil and violence running around in today’s world, we don’t need to live it again forever for eternity……the choice is yours.

The heaven is like an unimaginable & everlasting graduation party after a long exams, who worked hard will enjoy forever.

Unfortunately, unsuccessful one won't get more chance.

There is no re-examination, so let us be honest & do what God likes because he knows the best for us.

Thank you Kashmir56 for reminding us how much we can find the peace in the heaven.

Came back to read it again, what wonder to look forward to!

I was born again on Dec 26, 2009 at the age of 33- which was very special to me since Jesus lived to be 33.

I was born a Catholic and very fervent, but I never knew the true peace that comes from being saved and my life is still difficult. But, being saved I was finally able to realize that salvation is a gift. My catholic faith confused me into thinking that I had to earn my way and worry constantly about slipping up and going to hell, or that my works were worth something- that I would be a great saint, and better than others.

As a born again child of God, I am not against Catholics, but I get much from reading the bible and anyways, I was able to put into action what the bible says, "By faith are ye saved, not by works lest any man should boast."

It was humbling to realize and accept that my salvation came from faith alone. That it is a free gift, which is amazing to me. The reality is we are "nothing" like dust and have no merit of our own.

It is Jesus Christ who came to be the one to save us from sin. And it is He alone we should pray to with the father and the Holy Spirit. "No one comes to the father but through Me"....

Thank you. And God bless.

Rose

I have read many books about the near death experience and even that is wonderful according to accounts. No one dies alone because they all report loved ones or others in that same tunnel of light. Those that return to tell about their experiences are never again afraid to die. Heaven must be so wonderful! I look forward to seeing my loved ones there again someday. Think of babies in the womb. They can see light and hear but not like when they are born. Our deaths will be a birth into the next life where we will truly understand what heaven is like. We only get small tastes of it in this life.

Hi Peggy nice to see you, yes i do agree with you that heaven is so wonderful and once you are there you won't want to leave. It will be good to to see all our loved ones to. And i hope to i can see all my beautiful dogs has well. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your nice comments !

Very interesting hub and here I am back to read it again. I think even those people who don't believe in God ask sometimes if there is heaven. Nobody really knows and it is interesting to just think of what it is really like.

kashmir56 4 years ago from Massachusetts Author

Hi ignugent17 nice to see you, glad you found this information interesting. It would be nice to know for sure that there is a heaven, but we don't. All we are asked to do is believe there is. Thanks so much for stopping by and to for your nice comments !

I have no idea what heaven is like but I hope I get there. It has to be better than earth. Don't get me wrong I love earth and I think we have many wonders on earth but we also have too many wars and to many bad people. Voted up.

Heaven I know...

...Will be more beautiful than the most beautiful place here on earth.

...Will be much more interesting than the most interesting thing or place on earth.

When I think of heaven,

I think about Peace. The peace that passes all human understanding.

I think about Joy. Unspeakable joy.

I think about Love. Love that is pure, and unconditional.

Heaven will be like nothing we've seen or heard, or known here on earth. That's for sure.

Thanks for this thought provoking hub. Voted up and interesting. :)

This is a beautiful way to described the afterlife Tom and so many people who have had out of body experiences, have described feelings almost exactly as you have described.

Many of these people, even although they had husbands/wives and children they loved dearly, didn't want to return to their physical bodies, but were told - in a loving gentle way - that they had to return to complete the work set out for them. On returning to their physical body, these people were never the same again and as many have said, they cannot put into words how to describe what they experienced - the beauty, peace, love and so on.

This was a lovely hub and I think you've captured very well what others have experienced.

Hello

I hear we will be surprised to see some people in heaven, and some we thought would be there may not! I hear God judges our hearts alone and only He knows who of us will be saved.

Narrow the way to heaven and broad the way to hell and self destruction. But the ones who go to hell will have willed it by not wanting to love God by refusing to and not having any faith- let us pray for them to have some faith . The two parts of hell are loss and pain. Loss is worse than pain because once the soul SEES heaven and what he/she's losing, it will be so much worse and so much more torture.

Heaven will be a great place to go! But it will take time to prepare because I would not be ready yet, to face a perfect God who is perfect in every way until I do more to get to know Him here first! What I mean is, since we're going to spend eternity with Him, we might as well get started now! Actually, the more one loves God on earth the more inner peace they will experience.

I hear also we can pray, fast, and do penance to help convert sinners.

Let's make the most of our time while we still have it!
