We (all those who make it to Heaven) will have a "new" body, a spiritual body.
Revelation tells us Heaven is a city of "pure gold, like unto clear glass", (Rev. 21: 18), the wall is jasper, the foundations of the wall are garnished with many precious stones, the twelve gates are pearls, the street is pure gold; the LOrd God and the Lamb are the temple of it;
it has no need of the sun or the moon, for the glory of God lightens it, and the Lamb (Jesus) is the light; the gates are open 24/7; there is no night there; nothing and nobody that defiles or works abomination or makes a lie will enter there.
Rev. 21: 4 says God will wipe away all tears from our eyes, there will be no more death, sorrow, nor crying, nor pain. Rev. 22: 3 says there shall be no more curse, and we will serve God/the Lamb; we shall see His face, and His name will be in our foreheads.
There is more. You should read Revelation if you haven't already!
Whether this is interpreted literally or Spiritually or both, this is an awesome picture that the Bible paints for us to look forward to!
Heaven like hell really depends on your perspective. On the first page of the Bible when God creates everything, there is no mention of a creation called"Hell", Second, when God was done, he stepped back and said that all he had created was good. Third, in looking at the text shows that the firmament of heaven is that which starts where the surface of the earth ends, so we walk UPON the earth, but we are walking THROUGH heaven. Both are what we have made of them.
Heaven is a dimension of the Light,supremely intelligent,encompassing all ,with no beginning and no end and time doesn't exist.This Light which is our home, source , god is pure love,something one cannot compare with anything on earth,supreme bliss. You are One,The Light.
"When do I see,meet God? Whenever you really decide to , When you want nothing."
As one has desires he or she will materialize to fulfill it.I like the Shaman term we co-create. Thoughts are the foundations of our universe,they materialize.
One need to meditate and in meditation give up, let god and die.
"Focus between your eyebrows with intense concentration, Then will come a deadly confrontation."
The Bible clearly states.. Their is going to be a beautiful paradise right here on earth... Just as he intended for Adam and Eve to live happy in perfect bodies before they sinned against God... God promises a new earth and new heaven.. Which is not far off... We are living in the very last days.. God made us to live on earth forever... I have no desire to go to Heaven if I can live on earth forever and be perfect.. With no sickness, dying, criying, killing, welcoming our love ones back from the dead... turning young.. Of course some people will go to heaven.. 144.000 who have been bought from earth to be associate kings and priests..
Revelation 5:9,10; 14:... They will help God's son Jesus rule in heaven over the earth... Acts 1:6 11; Luke 19:11, 12, 15,... Only spirit persons are in the heavens.... I look forward to living on earth in a perfect world that is sure to come..
Actually Islam tells a lot more than that...Its a place where each man gets seventy beautiful virgins. Their virginity is restored after each sexual intercourse which means they are virgin for eternity. Thats not all, its said that light will reflect from their teeth & wine will pour from their vagina I always felt that a psychotic pervert wrote it! Other than that, The islamic heaven also talks about wine, palaces, gardens.
On the contrary, Buddhism doesnt talk about any physical heaven neither mentioned any place like heaven. It only talked about a state which could be compared to heaven but it souldnt be
Not exactly...Buddha actually made fun of Gods. Its a mistake that most people do by taking Nirvana & God as the same thing. Buddha felt that like Humans, Gods are also a higher entity bound in the Maya of this world & needs to attain Nirvana too. Nirvana can be compared with nonexistence not light. It has never been compared to light or any source, thats misinterpretation. But to understand nirvana you have to learn the positive & important side of nonexistence first which Buddha tried to portrayed already. State of Buddha hood is to get free from this world, from every type of world including heaven & to achieve nonexistence, its completely different than heaven
This is Hindu philosophy three stages man then god-man and then god.
Nirvana can be compared with nonexistence not light- he was an enlightened one .Heaven r god is the Light its reality and not a misinterpretation. Call it the void,the state of Buddha hood is to be one with the Light or heaven,enlightenment.
Yes, there will be no judgements or dicrimination, and atheists and the religious will stop arguing. The big G will say, "Who dared to suggest they could speak on my behalf?" Still, I wouldn't know, I'm an atheist.
I went out three times. A ski accident, a horse incident and Chemotherapy. Heaven is not a place. It is a space I want to go to. But I must be bad for I keep getting sent back. Forget scripture, forget hell versus heaven. Heaven is when we let go and stop struggling. There is a peace that is good. Now my momma did not have it so well --- she fought like hell to stay alive, ,,, Well that looked like hell. Heaven is a space that is rest. I just love my life and living. I do not want to leave. But I know what is on the other side for I have seen it. It is waiting for your.
The world as we know it is coming to an end. I should be dead for all my sin of this earth. I remember you and a blond 335. Soon the world will change and I write about what the Bible says. His ways are not of ours and ours are not of His! Look closely to the world being shaken to its very core. May we live in interesting times is curse but God can and will make right on it all. Dave we go back a long way, and I agree that denomination pushes us away. I just keep reading the manual to life. The Bible. Take care and heaven is beyond any mans imagination....says so in the good book. I am truly blessed by God, and we did not get this far for nothing. Mike
if you check the real meanings of the greek words that describe heaven, there is no street of gold, there is a large area of gold, the throne would be in the middle of that, the twelve gates are around the large golden area
The idea of "heaven" being single and all-encompassed into one place defeats the reasoning of agency and individuality. Each of us is different with different motives. Two righteous individuals cannot have exactly the same intents in their actions. However, will one of the righteous individuals be denied the Kingdom of God over the other righteous one? NO! There are varying degrees of heaven. A glory compared to the brightness of the stars. Another glory compared to that of the moon. Yet another compared to that of the sun. Each of these contain happiness beyond what we experience here. We are to strive for the top though.
Many years ago, I was a nurse and saw people die. Their spirits left their body and I had a feeling that they were on a journey somewhere, but I didn't know where. However, I rather think that heaven is what ever people want it to be. Personally, I don't want it to be anything and I especially don't want anything for eternity!
u cannot imagine how heaven is like...its beyond ur imaginations....in islam religion, God told tat no one can ever imagine how heaven is like....and u can ask anything or watever tat u wish for wen ur in heaven n u will get it n yea even BEER haha n even God told tat any questions about religious u can find it in the holy Quran book but tat in islam
I think heaven, like hell, is mostly a state of one's mind. You can be in the most ideal circumstances and still be miserable. It only stands to reason that if there is an after life, that what we have in our minds and souls in this life we will take to the next. How can it all possibly and suddenly be reversed to a heaven or hell?
I think heaven and hell are with us in this life and the next as a result of what we are, what we think and what we do. This life is a heaven or hell depending on us. And so is the next, if there is one.
There is no evidence for it. Not one speck! And why would there be? God made himself, then became his own son and killed himself? Totally ridiculous and insane beliefs from a pile of old stories from the most unreliable source known to man.
A sky fairy who hates and kills those who don't believe in it?
It is written in the Bible that the Kingdom of Heaven are streets of gold and the gates are indeed pearly. Also it is written if you believe in the good book as I do, that there is no sorrow, just happiness, a glorius light, never darkness. Most of all though it is said that no man of this earth can really understand the reality of Heaven as the Kingdom is beyond any mortal man's understanding. So really until I take the train I will not know. I can only have my faith which upholds me while we shall not know our day nor hour. Faith...the evidence of all things unseen. I hope you are not angry with me at my thoughts.
I can tell ya what heaven won't be like. It is a real place, and it won't be a place where someone thinks it's creepy nor boring nor where someone tells ya to forget Scripture, nor will it be a place where people bump old threads just for the opportunity to diss the Bible and the Maker of Heaven.
From the beginning in the old testament Moses did not say how satan came into the stage after his account on creation. We now teach that the devil decived Adam and Eve. But most interestingly is the idea that Satan was...
There is no afterlife, I believe that when we die that is it, and to be honest we are all in the same boat, so it doesn't bother me at all. The easter bunny would be a much more credible idea than a 'soul' floating up...
When God come How many people will be saved that are alive. the bible states only 144,000, that are alive will be save out the whole world. How many dead will be saved, the bible state a number that no man can number.

No, this isn't a 'bash the believers' thread, nor do I wish to see it become as such. Instead, I have an earnest question I want answered, and I'm afraid non-believers aren't qualified to answer this one, for reasons...
