Scripture describes heaven so beautifully that one would think just to read of a place of such beauty people would consider their ways so they are assured of spending eternity there. There is a Holy City that God has prepared for all who live by the faith in his Son the Lord Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 11:13-16). John tells us of this wonderful city called the “New Jerusalem” which will one day be ushered in from heaven to earth after this present world which is reserved unto judgement be removed by the destruction called the abomination of desolation. “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgement and perdition of ungodly men. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness”.(2 Peter 3:7,10-13).
The atmosphere of heaven is one of holiness with no wild beasts that would endanger anyone. Only they who love God and christ will dwell there and all we had to endure here on earth will have no part there. Neither anything that is abominable, no liars, or anything that defiles! and there will be no sun or moon as we know it for God and the Lamb will lighten it with their glory! “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life”.(Revelation 21:23-27).
It is a whole new world that once and for all only the love of God will be there and disease, tears, or any kind of division among any people will not! “And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away”.(Isaiah 35:8-10).
