For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.(Colossians 1:16,17).
What would be the reason for living and dying if that was all there is, surely there is more to life than that. Life is not easy by any means and our purpose has more meaning when we believe in the one who created everything into existence including the creation of us. When we see through eyes of faith we look forward to our future as well as after we have lived our life, for nothing compares to heavens glory that awaits us. (Isaiah 60:18-22). Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time. (Revelation 21:22-27).
How fortunate we are to have our Lord seated right now in the heavens, a place for those who are in Christ are seated as well (Ephesians 2:4-8) But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. (Hebrews 4:13-16).
What a glorious time it will be to see heaven, a place where the redeemed will walk unashamed to of followed the Lord their God! (Isaiah 35:8-10) 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.

I see heaven as a condition. If the condition is heavenly, then it’s heaven. And there will be a whole cosmos of it in the new heaven and the new earth. LOLGB+
