Sermon About Heaven: What is Heaven like?

 What is Heaven like?

Christianity's central concept is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. According to the New Testament, after his death on a cross, Jesus rose from the dead and ascended to heaven. As a result, he now sits at God's right hand in heaven. When christians die, they finally will go place of eternal peace and happiness. Open Heaven God.

I. Heaven is the Place of God's Throne (Revelation 4:2)

Our journey into understanding heaven begins with recognizing that it is the very dwelling place of God's throne. In Revelation 4:2, we catch a glimpse of the awe-inspiring scene of John's vision, where he witnesses the magnificent throne of God. Heaven is not merely a distant concept; it's a realm where God's sovereignty and glory radiate. It's a place where His presence is unblemished, and His authority reigns supreme.

II. Heaven is the Christian's Hope (Colossians 1:5)

Heaven is not just a place but a hope. Colossians 1:5 speaks of the hope laid up for us in heaven. This hope sustains us in times of trial and uncertainty. As Christians, we're not wandering aimlessly; we're journeying towards our heavenly home. This hope strengthens our faith and fills our hearts with anticipation, knowing that our future is secure in the hands of our loving God.

“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14)
The Goal that we are striving for is to be more like Christ.
The prize is Heaven.
How many want to go to Heaven? Philippians 3:20-21

III. Heaven is Our Longed-for Home (Hebrews 11:13-16)

Heaven is the destination for which our souls yearn. Hebrews 11:13-16 recounts the stories of faithful believers who recognized that this world was not their final dwelling place. They desired a better country—a heavenly one. Just as these heroes of faith longed for their true home, we too should fix our eyes on the eternal city, where we will find fulfillment and eternal joy.

Water for life

  • In the midst of heaven (Rev. 22:2)
  • Provision From God (Rev. 22:1-5)

IV. Heaven is the End (Outcome) of Our Faith (1 Peter 1:9)

Heaven gives purpose to our faith journey. 1 Peter 1:9 speaks of the salvation of our souls as the outcome of our faith. The culmination of our faith is the heavenly reward. We are not striving blindly; we are moving towards a glorious end—an eternity in the presence of our Savior.

V. Heaven is the Reward of "Job Well Done" (2 Timothy 4:6-8)

Heaven serves as the ultimate reward for a life lived for Christ. In 2 Timothy 4:6-8, Paul speaks of his impending departure and the crown of righteousness awaiting him. Just as Paul looked forward to this reward, we too can anticipate the joy of hearing the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant." Heaven is the culmination of our faithful service to God, a reward beyond compare.

VI. In this heavenly place, people find eternal happiness. 

  • God arranged for man to dwell with Him (Gen. 3:8-9)
  • God purposed to redeem man (Gen. 3:15; Heb. 2:10)
  • God set up a temporary dwelling place with man (Lev. 26:11-12)

Heaven offers a place of eternal bliss for those who have accepted God's gift of eternal life.
Heaven is described as a place of perfect peace and happiness. It is a realm free from physical pain and fullfillment. 

Why Do I Want To Go?

No Sin
No Decay
No Goodbyes
My God Is There
  • Jesus Went To Prepare A Place
  • Others Are Waiting
  • To Continue On Together

Who believe at Jesus they'll go to heaven when they die. This is because heaven looks like a place of endless joy and happiness. In contrast, hell is a place of eternal fire and torture where people feel constant agony. 

All can go to heaven, but we must prepare. Obey the gospel & truly live for Him! Heaven will be your eternal home.

Most think of heaven after death, but do not think much about the judgment. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27

While most hope to go to heaven when they die, this does not mean that all do or will go there. Those who accept Christ as their Messiah will find their way into the presence of 'the Lord,' who is both God the Father and God the Son (see 2 Corinthians 12:4-6). This is why many early Christians looked forward to seeing Christ in heaven; they would then finally experience what we all long for in our hearts.

As we conclude, let us embrace the incredible truth of heaven—a place of God's throne, our hope, our longed-for home, the end of our faith, and the reward of a life devoted to Christ. Let the hope of heaven invigorate our daily lives, bringing purpose and assurance to our journey of faith. As we navigate life's challenges, let us remember that our ultimate destination is the heavenly realm, where we will experience the fullness of God's glory, love, and eternal joy. May this knowledge inspire us to live boldly for Christ and to eagerly anticipate the day we enter our heavenly home
