What will heaven be like?
3 people die every second. Scripture says that our lives are but a breath. Picture your breath on a cold day. It hovers before you for a moment and vanishes the next. And so it is with our lives in the scope of eternity.
There are many opinions in regard to what happens after this life. Atheists, agnostics and many evolutionists claim that there is nothing. Hindu's believe in reincarnation. Most other world religions believe in some type of Heaven and/or Hell. Still others claim we will be reunited with an alien race as long as we correspond with the mothership during our stay on earth.
Regardless of what you believe we can all be clumped in two categories. "Philip of Macedon, father of Alexander the Great, commissioned a servant to stand in his presence each day and say 'Philip, you will die.' In contrast, France's Louis XIV decreed that the word death not be uttered in his presence. Most of us are more like Louis than Philip, denying death and avoiding the thought of it except when it's force upon us." -Randy Alcorn, HEAVEN
As a Christian I believe in a literal Heaven and Hell as taught by Jesus. For the longest time I was unmotivated to give my life to Christ in order to float around in the sky with a harp singing hymns for eternity. Call me crazy but that doesn't sound that awesome. I mean floating would be cool for about an hour...but then what.
I believe that Satan has blasphemed Heaven and one of his strategies, being the father of lies, is to spread lies about what Heaven is really like. So I am on a journey. A journey to discover the truth about Heaven. As I learn the truth, I intend to share it with you in a series called, "What will heaven be like?"
I would love to hear what you have to say about Heaven as well. Stay tuned...
