We hear many things and contradictory thing about Heaven and Hell... from the world, the news, people, books, even well-meaning folks such as people who think that they know the truth, including our families.

Here is the Truth according to the Holy Bible, the Word of God, and from Christ Jesus Himself.  These are just a few examples:

25 Bible Verses About Heaven. Ever wondered about heaven? The Bible speaks about eternity often, in both the Old and New Testaments. If you’ve found yourself wondering 

how a person gets to heaven, what heaven is like, or what Jesus had to say about heaven, then use the following list of Bible verses about heaven to spur on your Bible study and your worship.

1. “Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:8)

2. “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

3. “He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son.” (Colossians 1:13)

4. “Therefore they are before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;
the sun shall not strike them,
nor any scorching heat.
For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of living water,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Revelation 7:15-17)

5. “For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray…But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us…so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (Titus 3:3-7)

6. “In your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11)

7. “There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

8. “There will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” (Luke 15:7)

9. “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.” (Revelation 21:3)

10. “Set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:13)

11. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” (Matthew 7:21-23)

12. “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

13. “A person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 2:16)

14. “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord,we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:1-7)

15. “Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth with all that is in it.”(Deuteronomy 10:1

 

~~~PLEASE be sure for your own Life for eternity that you ARE with God

(not separated from Him forever) by making that Choice and speaking from your heart to Him that you believe in Jesus as your Savior and the Lord of your life; that you know He died for your wrongs; and that you want Him in your heart and life forever.  You will not know or understand everything- no one understands everything about God or even the Bible, but we can and want to learn and to keep growing closer to Him.  I can promise you: that you will have a life here on earth, for now 'til you go to Heaven, that will be guarded by and lead and loved by your

Heavenly Father.~~~  


 Dear God in Heaven, My Heavenly Father,

I want very much to be in Heaven with You, the Lord Jesus, and my family and those whom I care about.  I know that as I ask You now to come into my heart, that You through the Holy Spirit, will come into my heart and mind to love me, comfort me, guide me and to help my make choices that please the Father.

I ask that You forgive my sins, once and for all!  I want to have You abide with me as I make my way here on Earth and then take me to Heaven one day to live in Light and Love with You and others forever and ever.  I believe that Jesus died on the cross for me, arose three days later and in forty day, ascended to Heaven to be with You, where He, Jesus, now intercedes for me to You.  I will learn as I go along and as I make mistakes, ask for Your forgiveness.

In Jesus' Name, Amen!


Now, go and live without fear and without wondering about your forever Home.  It is done; you are His, always!  Be happy!  Pray for your loved ones and others.  The Bible says to pray for the ones we do not know, strangers, and to love them.  I am trying, especially the loving part.  I think of and ask Jesus to help me.  He always does help me.

God bless you!  You are in the family and kingdom of God Almighty!

 Jesus Christ is the same 

yesterday, today, and forever.
Hebrews 13:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
Thank you godisreal.today/pictures-of-jesus, Artist Greg Olson for this stunning painting of Jesus today talking with a young man about something serious and important.  Jesus has and does talk with each person who will listen- the same every day and forever.  Here Jesus in the dress of His day on Earth with a young man from this current time...very interesting :)

Our great God of all creation, the Creator, the Healer, the Messiah, Emmanuel- "God is with us".  Yes, can you imagine?  The One Who spoke the world into being, making Himself a tiny Babe, completely helpless, the One Who could have called thousands of angels down at any moment, chose to come fully as a man, the Son of Man, and also the Son of God, fully God!  He chose to come down to earth to save us, for we could never save ourselves from our sins.  It had to be done by the perfect Lamb of God because God is holy.  Yet, he loves us more than any of His creation, so much so, that He had a Plan in place even when we fell from grace in the Garden of Eden.

The Lord has never let me down, not ever, not even once.  He is always faithful to us, even at times when we have turned our backs on Him.

During my teen years and into college, I did a lot of reckless things; sometimes I suffered the consequences, and sometimes, by the grace of God, I seemed completely spared.  In high school I was standing up in the back of a truck bed where I should not have been, and the truck lurched forward,  so did I, and off and out I went onto the solid concrete in the parking lot.  I made it home and was badly bruised and very sore.  My poor mom met me at the door.  Mom was a believer in Christ as she always was- oh, how relieved and yet I am sure- shocked and thankful she was for my return home in one piece.  I am positive that she had been praying for my safe return that night while I was out with friends, as she prayed for my sister Sherry and me each day, certainly multiple times!  Once I became a parent, I joined in with the multitude of praying parents over their children's lives, forever and always, and I understood full well why Mom must've been praying for me that night, and I came away from it all relatively unscathed, by the Lord's grace.

My mother prayed quietly, openly, often- all of that and more.  Early on in life, she had taken Christ Jesus as her Lord and Savior.  It is an act of faith that when we hear the Word of God and His promises in Jesus, that we say, "Yes," to Him, asking for forgiveness of sins and promising to live in a close relationship with God, now and forever.  Everything that one has done before accepting Christ is forgiven; "as far as the east is from the west," or though the Lord had thrown your sins into the deepest chasm of the sea, never to be remembered. Psalm 103:8,10-14 (NIV) "The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love... He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgression from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust."

This is no small thing, since it is the most important decision that you and I will ever make- all else pales in comparison.  Please do not wait a second more if you are still waiting or undecided.  You can pray a prayer like this one: Dear Father in Heaven, I know I have done things that have displeased you, even greatly at times.  I ask for the forgiveness that only You can give me.  You made me and love me, knowing every thought I will ever have.  I accept Jesus Christ as my Savior and the Lord of my life.  Thanks be to You, in Jesus' Name, Amen.

In the first posting, I mentioned how most of the time around the car accident that I experienced what little I saw was a gray-color, but I did remember some distinctive things.  The point that I really want to make is that God is the most merciful, the most loving, the most patient, and the most powerful Almighty King we could ever imagine.  He spared me from so much hurt, pain and remembrance of a terrible moment in my life.  I do hope that this realization will comfort those of you who have loved ones who have endured horrible events. 

It will be incredible when we get to experience the full Presence of God, night and day for eternity.  The peace, joy, and goodness of being together with the Lord for ever and ever, well, it is something I long for- don't you?  We can talk more about Heaven any time; I have a couple of great books I have enjoyed and learned about aspects of Heaven (based on the Bible)- and of course, I have The Holy Bible to read itself, just like you do!  Please send your comments, experiences, and thoughts.  Coming up soon: God is Always with You; Jesus Christ, the Same Yesterday, Today and Forever; Jesus is the Open Door; and The Names of God.  If these titles speak to you, send your comments about them any time. 

Here is a poem I wrote awhile back that I hope you enjoy- then a few more comments.  Until next time, God be with you- He is!!


God just keeps healing me,


God just keeps healing you.


If we only could conceive


Of the many healings we receive!



Taking for granted


His daily miracles-


So many, uncountable…


But His heart is so full,


And His mercy and power


So boundless.



Yes, God just keeps healing me,


And He keeps healing you.


If only we could fathom


His never-ending love.



Only Christ Jesus


Shows us the Way to the Father


Through our Savior’s sacrifice- for us,


We can accept the truth that, yes…



God just keeps healing me,


God just keeps healing you.

Thanks you to several of you who have left comments and who have signed up through Facebook! I  have a Page on Facebook, The Healing is Always Christ.


Regarding the recent disaster in the eastern states once again, I pray specifically for those who have lost loved ones, pets and precious memories and now need clean water and food, their electrical and gas power restored, a place to call "home" again that is really their own as soon as possible, including healing for their emotional and spiritual needs.  


***(Some thoughts on emergency preparedness... I originally wrote this article in Autumn after Hurricane Sandy.)  

I am very thankful that we are okay, not under a catastrophe, where we are right now. It is dire in that we are toward the end, we hope, of the world's pandemic, and many folks are getting vaccinated!  Praise be to God on High---when I think and thank the Lord Almighty that he enabled human medical people to develop, test, and to have GOOD outcomes for inoculations against the Covid-19, it is only by the miracle of Jesus Christ, our Creator and our Lover. However, it is always a good idea to have extra food, water, medical necessities such as medicines, bandages, and Neosporin, matches/flashlights/LED lighting and toiletry necessities. If you have the means to afford a generator, super!! You can start by putting a few extra things in your shopping cart such as peanut butter and tuna, and bottles of water as you shop each week. Be sure you will eat what you buy. Bags of rice, good ones such as long-grain, wild, are very good, but keep tightly wrapped and in tin. For example, I just bought the dried instant, non-fat milk such as Carnation (a medium-sized box for $7.48 recently) in the box and if you have babies, of course you will want to have extra baby food, formula if your baby drinks that, and good nibblies (snacks) on hand!!!  There is a group called Thrift; I am not promoting it necessarily (I bought from them for a while), but they have many packaged foods that have shelf life of many years.  They have gadgets that you can run water through to help purify it if you have access to decent drinking water, for bathing and such.  They have many ideas and items for survival in a disaster or catastrophe, including lesser ones where one is snowed in for a few days.  Check out the Red Cross!  You should keep these items in your car in the trunk if not TOO hot or TOO cold for certain things and/or have a luggage back on roller wheels that has a very good First Aid Kit- inside the car and inside your apartment or home.  Your car and home should have at least one very excellent lantern, LED, and your car needs a red flare or other flashing light that you can put outside your car to tell other motorists that you need help.  This list is far from complete! Your family should know a safe place to meet it would be difficult to have the meeting point at your home. I thank several friends, and you know who you are :) who have enlightened me over these last years on preparation in emergencies.

Until next time, May the LORD bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you, and to give you Peace.
