Jan 2 Devotion: What a Wonderful Place Heaven will be!

John 14:1-3–  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

*there’s nothing in our world or comprehension to compare the…

  1. Scenes of Heaven to!

  2. Serenity of Heaven to!

  3. Singing of Heaven to!

  4. Sweetness of Heaven to!

What a Wonderful Place Heaven will be!

*Heaven will be a place of…

  1. Recognition!

I Thes. 2:19-20– For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

20 For ye are our glory and joy.

  1. Reunion!

I Thes. 4:16-17– For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

  1. Residence!

Phil. 3:20-21– For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

  1. Righteousness!

Rev 21:27– 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.

  1. Rest!

Rev. 14:13– And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

  1. Rejoicing!

Rev. 5:11-14– And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

  1. Royalty!

Rev. 22:3– And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

  1. Recollection!

Matt. 8:1– And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

May we set our sites on Heaven and labor to take as many as we can with us!  -Pastor Doug Foster
