Q:

I don't mean to be irreverent, but heaven sounds kind of boring to me, and I'm not sure I even want to go there when I die. And anyway, I suspect most of my friends will be in the other place and having a good time, just like they do now.


A:

I’m sorry if you’ve gotten the impression that heaven will be boring, because the opposite is the case! Heaven instead will be far more fascinating than anything we’ll ever experience on this earth.

For one thing, God will have work for us to do. Unlike our work on earth, however, it will never be monotonous or dull, nor will we grow tired or weary. The Bible doesn’t tell us exactly what will be involved, but whatever it is, we’ll take delight in it and find it completely fulfilling. The Bible says, “No longer will there be any curse…. and his servants will serve him” (Revelation 22:3).

In addition, we’ll have all eternity to explore the riches of God’s creation, including the unimaginable glory of heaven. We also will be reunited with all those who’ve gone to heaven before us, and we’ll understand, as well, all the things we find confusing right now. As the Apostle Paul said, “Now I know in part; then I shall know fully” (1 Corinthians 13:12).

Don’t be deceived into thinking hell will be a place of fun and excitement; nothing could be farther from the truth. Not one word in the Bible about hell would ever make you want to go there. Instead, put your life into Christ’s hands, and make Him the foundation of your life — and your hope for eternity. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him” (Romans 15:13).

    Heaven, is the most perfect place anyone Can ever imagine. The bible talked about the new heaven & new earth, just think of how perfect the new earth is most likely to be. Just imagine a place were all the systems are perfect, no crime, no terrorist activities, no cheating, no bullying. So tell me how won’t you desire to live in such a place for the 1000yrs according to the Bible? Now try and compare it to heaven were God himself lives. He knows what we humans enjoy the most on earth and I’m sure he would have created heaven to be more perfect than we can ever imagine.
    So Don’t be deceived, heaven is awesome but Hell is no place to be. Get your ways right with Jesus today & you wil reap the reward here on earth and eternal life afterwards.

    It is very comforting to know that here on earth we still have a ministry that stands on the rock, which is the true word of Jesus, My Lord and Savior. Thank you all at BGEA.
