Speculation about the nature of heaven has been fodder for theologians and song writers for ages. Imagery of mansions and streets of gold permeate such things and captivate our minds. Yet what captivates me more is that Jesus himself is preparing heaven for us. Referencing the prophet Isaiah, the apostle Paul describes it this way:
“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.”Heaven is truly unimaginable. It is the divine eternal response to all who are weary and weighed down in this life. To those who struggle.. to those who stay faithful in trials.. to all who persevere Jesus says to not let our hearts be troubled. Jesus will come for such as these.. he will be there when they die.. and he will one day come for the living.
We O Lord are those who have hope. Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus!
