That picture.....Just kidding. I've always imagined it would be like the Garden of Eden. Something like a forest.
Another interesting question.....Does Heaven have a look at all, or is it experienced in some other way? (going to post that right now.)
It will be very interesting to follow the responses to your wonderful question!
In Revelation, we are told that our Heaven as Christians will be the New Jerusalem. In dreams and visions, God has allowed me to See and walk down the empty streets of the New Jerusalem. I have gone inside some of the buildings in my dreams. When I was working and traveling around the United States, my dreams would be of flying over the New Jerusalem because I flew an awful lot. I know of several other people who have been involved in the New Jerusalem in their dreams. Each dream is tailored to the experiences and beliefs of the individual having the dream.
Sorry, to answer your question, I think that Heaven is Beautiful. The streets of gold are symbolic of the Richness of the Path of Righteousness that leads you to the Presence of God.
Very nice picture! The illuminescent doorway is very Real!
Heaven is where you feel like home and just freaking good. There's no need to wait to get there some day as it depends solely on you what heaven looks like. Your life could eventually not look as good/bright as on your picture but yet feel that way or even better. Maybe it's both. Bottom line is, your hell or heaven is exactly where you're standing right now ...
Many times, 7 or 8...........I have seen your question, and passed it by.
The truth is, I have never, not one time, imagined what Heaven looked like.
I , only know of its promise.
Suppose, I end up in the swamp, in the 'trailer trash community".................it is STILL Heaven.
Heaven, in any form, is not HELL.
Oh! Good question. I'm actually doing a comprehensive study on heaven right now. What I've researched thus far is amazing. Many different people who have been to heaven and come back to tell about it report very siimiar details. These people range from different periods of time, different ages, cultures, and backgrounds. They also fit with the biblical descriptions of heaven. In a nutshell, here are some of the common threads I've found: 1. It is a real place (a planet) that has trees, water, flowers, etc. It's not people sitting on clouds--it is even more of a reality than this earth. 2. There is no sun--there is no darkness--not even shadows. The light comes from God, Himself. 3. The throne of God is in the center of heaven in the Holy City. God's throne is way, up high. God is shrouded in light. There are creatures flying around the throne. 4. There are mansions in heaven--real, literal mansions. They are made of gold and other precious stones. 5. The outer perimeter of heaven is like suburbs--like a countryside. People who just make it in, for example (death-bed confession) start on the outer edge of heaven before they can go to the Holy City because they have much to learn first (i.e. modeled like the tabernacle). 6. There are vehicels in heaven--"light" machines that are like chariots but without horses. 7. There are animals in heaven. 8. There is education and learning in heaven. 9. There is amazing music and everything is like alive--even the flowers and streets seem to be alive and to worship God/make music. 10. The river of God is the Spirit of God. 11. There are trees that line the gold streets and the trees of life are here--they have delicious fruit that when eaten, strenghtens the one who eats it. It is also very juicy. 12. The gold in heaven is like pure gold--almost like crystal, transparent. 13. People wear different garments--robe of righteousness, garment of praise, and another kind (I forgot). 13. There are many different kinds of places. There are court rooms, learning rooms/libraries, gardens, something like a movie theathre (but you watch "real life", throne rooms, worship rooms, and many, many more. 14. People are busy in heaven--lots of activity going on. People have others over for dinner, etc. 15. There are many babies and children in heaven. 16. The colors in heaven are so vibrant--and the sights and smells--all undescribable to what we experience on earth. Believe me--that is ony a nutshell! I'm going to write a book. :-)
Even with the description of the structure (Revelation 21), I think it is beyond imagination. I don't think too deeply; 'll like to be surprised.
First I must say, I love your photo.
I know what the Bible says about Heaven as others have described here as well. In my mind, I dream of Heaven as being with my family, friends and loved ones who have gone on before me. I look forward to that day of being reunited.
Heaven will be filled with a beauty that is undescrible to our human mind. The colors will be more vibrant and we'll see colors we've never seen before. The fruits and foods will be simply delicious, unlike anything we've ever tasted.
The presence of God will give us light so brightly that the Sun can't even compare to it. And the love we'll experience in Heaven can't even compare to the best love we've experienced on earth.
Love will be present all around us.
There’s heaven that can be seen, and felt, then there’s the heaven of the heavens where God dwells. That’s invisible.
Something way beyond my imagination. If I am able to imagine how beautiful and serene it is, It is more than I imagined it to be.
A question was asked...What does Heaven look like? My perception of Heaven is unique but I am sure not a singular thought among millions. What is your vision of Heaven? read more
very interesting and also intriguing question.
for me, heaven is anything that beyond even my wildest imagination.
nothing compare to it.
it is the place that give you all you want, every thing that we ask will answered by "YES"
Great question and nice photo!
God would be there and he would light up the heavenly world. I imagine we would be able to fly and teleport, change forms and so on. I imagine being in the clouds in peace stress free and happy within. Heaven I guess would be shiny. I think there could be a nice forest and things that remind us of the best of planet earth. I hope there is a really nice beach where I culd just lay down and spend the day doing nothing.
I think it would be cool if the scene changed to suit the hearts of the residents.

Hypothetical Question: What if it were proven there's only one true God and It wasn't your God?For this question, you must use your imagination. You must pretend the premise of the question is true and then answer it accordingly. The premise is that God has been discovered and it's been proven...

For as long as religion existed, there has always been the threat of torture in the afterlife (unless you subscribe to *insert religion here* and convert today!), but when you actually think about it and apply a single brain cell to the idea, it doesn't make any kind of sense at all. Given that I...
