Heaven Is Real
2 CORINTHIANS 5:1 NLT
1 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.
If we expect the world to ever believe our message of Good News, we should not live like this life is all there is.
As Christian believers we should live and die like we believe the Bible, which clearly reveals this life is not the end.
As a believer in Jesus Christ, when we leave this body we immediately enter into the realm of ultimate reality with the Lord.
2 CORINTHIANS 5:8 NLT
8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.
The spiritual realm is actually more real than the physical realm.
If you care to investigate, you will find there are multitudes of people who have visited Heaven and returned. Often it is because of a near-death experience.
Unanimously, their report is that Heaven is too wonderful for words. They try, but have trouble, expressing the glories and the joys of Heaven. No one, after experiencing Heaven, expressed a preference to continue living on earth.
1 PETER 1:4 NLT
4 and we have a priceless inheritance -- an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.
Heaven is better -- in every way -- than earth. While we should be faithful to fulfill our job here on earth and live out our lives doing the will of God, being His representatives, when it is time to depart we should not act like unbelievers.
As believers in Jesus Christ we have been delivered from the fear of death. Death has no sting left for us. Death cannot hurt us. We should not fear death.
SAY THIS: Heaven is real and I look forward to living there.
