The only home we should be interested in is .... The one with the pearly gates!

Updated on June 3, 2017

Heaven is our real home.

We are certainly somewhat obsessed with our homes. We become enamored with our dwellings. We never realize that just like the Bible says all of these things will pass away. All of them. So for that matter everything is temporal. Our true dwelling place is not here. Certainly our existence on this earth is merely temporal and only valid for a time. All of us will move on from this earthly existence into an eternal one. Yet, God provides to us an eternal home. A place where for all eternity there will be no pain, no sickness and no disease. Indeed a place where there will be no turmoil, no avarice, no greed, no hatred, no lies. and even no death. There will only be bliss and joy. God will wipe away every tear. Heaven is our real home. Jesus tells us that He goes to prepare a place for us and that in my Father's house there are many mansions. Assurance as such can only be achieved by our amazing God, the Alpha and the Omega. Thanks be to God for these amazing gifts and most importantly the gift of Jesus Christ, the Savior and the ultimate gift of salvation.

The beauty and majesty of Heaven really is quite beyond our human imagination and comprehension. We will all fall amazingly short of even trying to imagine such a place. The apostle John tries to describe it in the Book of Revelation but I think he believes he falls short and that mere words do not quite capture its beauty, majesty, tranquility, glory and peace. It is a destination that all of us should strive for and all of us should long for. So while it is nice to have a nice home here on earth the real kingdom of Heaven is in our eternal future. It is the only future that really matters and it is what should be most important of all to all of us. God has provided this destination through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In essence, the only home that will matter is the one with the pearly gates. So rather than going after the house with the white picket fence have the aspiration for the home with the white pearly gates. You will be much happier and it will last for all of eternity. What incredible joy awaits us. Here are some verses on Heaven:

Revelation 21:4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; There shall be no more death, nor mourning, nor crying, nor pain; for the old order of things have passed away.

Philippians 3:20 For our citizenship is in Heaven, for which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

John 14:2 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 to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.

Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever. The sovereign Lord will wipe away tears from all faces; the rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth for the Lord has spoken.

God bless always
