Proverbs 30:4 NKJV — Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know?
God the Father, the great Almighty, LORD, and the list of names continues, but what is His Son’s name?
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. Revelation 19:11-13 NKJV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
John 1:1-5 NKJV
Each of these verses is about Jesus.
He is the Word of God.
He is the Son of God.
He is salvation.
And He is in heaven.
Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
Acts 1:9-11 NKJV
He shall return.
Matthew 25:13 NKJV — “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”
Heaven is where God the Father and the Son are.
It is a place beyond description.
Jesus Himself called it Paradise. Luke 23:43
John 14:3 NKJV — “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
Jesus told His disciples that He had to return to heaven, that He is there preparing a place for those that are His.
It is the confident expectation of every born again follower of Christ Jesus to live eternally with Jesus in the place He has prepared.
There are many other scriptures which describe the wonder and grandeur of heaven.
Heaven is a real place.
Jesus is there and one day shall return.
No treasure on Earth can match the glory of heaven.
Nothing of this world can offer anything like life forever with Jesus.
No one knows the moment of His return from heaven, but everyone can guarantee He is coming.
Will you be ready?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You that You are preparing a place in heaven for those who accept Your gift of salvation. Lord, please let those who have yet to know You be ready and willing to hear and accept Your truths. Lord, help each one of us to see how temporary this life on Earth is and to cling to what is eternal. Lord Jesus, nothing compares to You. Your love, compassion, mercy, grace, and so much more are beyond anything I can comprehend. Truly You are great and mighty and worthy of all praise, honor, and glory. May the whole Earth be filled with the glory of You. Amen.
