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.

Described as a Paradise- Luke 24:43, II Cor. 12:2; Rev. 2:7. Greek word “paradeisos” which was borrowed from the Persians and used in the Septuagint to refer to a garden. Place of beauty.
God’s dwelling place (Ps. 33:13).
  • A city designed and built by God- Heb. 11:10
  • A house with many rooms (mansions)- John 14:1-2
  • A better country- Heb. 11:16

Reaching for the Prize – Heaven

“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

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
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
Hebrews 9:27
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

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.
