What does the Bible say heaven will be like?
Heaven will be a lot like earth, only so much better than earth that it seems like an insult to describe it like earth. I’m not trying to lower your expectations but I want to give you some frame of reference… This world is a shadow of things to come – a pale reflection see through the glass darkly.[Tweet “Heaven will be a lot like earth, only so much better than earth that it seems like an insult to describe it like earth.”]
This world is where we live… Heaven is the place where God is.
Home of Christ, angels, and redeemed. Only for those who know Christ, whose names written in Lamb’s book of life.
1 Peter 3:21-22
and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also–not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand–with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.
This world really exists…
Heaven is located up and out there, outside our own universe. It is solid. Real. Not airy. Not ethereal. Tangible.
1 Thessalonians 5:16
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
