John 14:2-3, Isaiah 11:6-7, Revelation 21, 22, 4:3-5

My family has a habit of reading the devotional, Our Daily Bread each day.  Recently, one writer wrote about someone who assumed Heaven is boring.  The writer quickly mentioned that when they went to the Grand Canyon, they were in awe at one part of God’s creation.  The author concluded that Heaven would not be boring.  I would like to add reasons I think Heaven will not be boring:

  1. Jesus will be there!
  2. Wolves, lions and bears can reside there (like a beautiful zoo with no cages).
  3. The sun is not needed because God Himself provides all of the light with no night.
  4. The River of Life is in front of God’s throne.
  5. Lightning and thunder come from God’s throne.
  6. There is a rainbow encircling His throne (no more waiting for the weather conditions to be just right for a rainbow).
  7. The main street is made out of GOLD.  God doesn’t have to mine for gold, since He can just make it.
  8. New Jerusalem’s walls will be decorated with jasper, sapphire, chalcedony, emerald, sardonyx, amethyst (my favorite), etc.  Is that enough precious stones for you?
  9. There are lots of mansions in Heaven.
  10. Jesus said He’d “prepare a place for you” which implies individual things might be included, like your favorite wild animals.

Will Heaven be boring?  Maybe one day’s highlights would be strolling down the golden street, hugging a lion, and doing a backstroke in the River of Life while watching lightning shoot out from God’s throne.  That sounds exciting to me!  Why would God make Himself a boring place to live?  That’s an insult to Him.  God is GOD and everything will be perfect.  Trust Him to provide eternal entertainment.

Genesis 9:1-17

God is so good!  On Thursday last week my family went to the Ark Encounter in Kentucky.  I had just hoped for a cloudy day so it would somewhat make me feel like I was in Noah’s time.  I got my wish and more.  It was cloudy and sprinkling when we got off the ark.  We noticed a couple of people with cameras pointed towards the sky.  Then, as we looked up, we saw a double rainbow!    I immediately remembered God’s promise to Noah and all living creatures that He wouldn’t again destroy all life with a great flood.  I was moved to tears and felt very happy spiritually.

 

Revelation 4:1-3, 5:11-12    Revelation 21

You have probably written, entered and spoken your address many times by now.  Even kindergartners are expected to know their address.  The address of our earthly house is what we visualize as home.  But for a Christian, where is our true home?  Yes, Heaven.  It is a beautiful, perfect place with a rainbow, singing angels, precious stones, pearls, gold, etc.  Heaven is a home that doesn’t need repairs.  No bills come in the mail.

For me, the best part of Heaven will be living with God, Jesus and loved ones for eternity.  How about you?

I saw a poem for kids called, “I Love God Poem.”  It says, “…Heaven’s my home.  Earth’s my test.”  Let’s pray we’ll do our best!
