The Bible never gives us a full description of heaven, only hints. It has room for everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Savior. We will have not just spirits, but eternal bodies that cannot die. We will share the perfect moral likeness of God’s Son. We will enjoy experiences never before seen or imagined in this life. Our present sorrows, crying, physical and emotional pain of all sorts will be gone. In this New Paradise, Satan will be banished, the curse on creation will be abolished, and access to God’s presence will be unlimited. In Rev CH 22, God’s angel gave John a symbolic view of heaven: “Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing 12 crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations. No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. And there will be no night there – no need for lamps or sun- for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.” No one in his right mind wants to miss this.
