What Heaven Will Be Like

By   •   August 21   •   Topics:

The Bible indicates that Heaven will be a place of great understanding and knowledge of things that we never learned down here. Sir Isaac Newton, when an old man, said to one who praised his wisdom, “I am as a child on the seashore picking up a pebble here and a shell there, but the great ocean of truth still lies before me.” And Thomas Edison once said, “I do not know one millionth part of one percent about anything.” Many of the mysteries of God-the heartaches, trials, disappointments, tragedies, and the silence of God in the midst of suffering-will be revealed in Heaven.

Watch: Billy Graham preaches on the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Prayer for the day

All the questions will be answered, loving Father, when I take my place in heaven to praise You.

  2. Paula S Rogers says:

    I just came across your page. I am saved and ready to meet the Lord. I am having some health issues that may lead there quicker and reading about heaven is comforting.

      Bless you, Carolyn. I stumbled across this in my studying of Scripture and saw this recent post. I recently was saved and the Holy Spirit is an amazing peaceful feeling. God loves you!

      Sorry. I meant this for Paula! Bless you!

    What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see, when I look upon His face, the one who saved me by His grace, when He takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land!!

      This is my prayer also, Ryan, and that song came to mind. What a day, glorious day, that will be!!

    Have listened to Billy Graham since I was young girl in the 1950’s.

  5. Ryan Glore says:

    Pray I will overcome my drinking problem.

    1. Jojo says:

      Ryan, I took a moment and prayed for you. Two days ago my brother died from drinking. He was my only brother, 57 years old. My heart is breaking because not only do I have to suffer but I get to watch my mother lose her only son. All behind booze. Three years ago when my brother was diagnosed, I decided to stop drinking and so I did. I prayed a million prayers and truthfully I doubted if I could quit. I have to tell you three years later that it was not near as hard as I imagined it would be. You can do this, just one day at a time! When you can’t do a day then do an hour, decide every morning to not drink! May God walk every step with you.

      Ryan, I was just reading through some of the responses from Billy Graham’s page and came across your request. I realize you wrote it back in August of this year but wanted you to know that I stopped what I was doing and prayed for you…that if you have not stopped drinking that the good Lord will give you the strength each day to help you to stop. He knows what’s going on with you right now. Have faith and He will see you through. I, too, have experienced alcoholism with my siblings and know how devastating it can be. May God bless you in a very special way Ryan and may it help you to know that others are praying for you as well. Love in Christ, Joyce H.

      Ryan, I responded to your request a few minutes ago but was unable to finish because of lack of space. If you do not know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour that you will do so right now. All you have to do is ADMIT that you are a sinner and have made mistakes like we all have. BELIEVE that Jesus is God’s only Son and died on the cross for your sins and mine. And CONFESS to others your faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Love in Christ, Joyce

    4. Barbara Davis says:

      I am praying for you Ryan.

    5. Cynthia Clapper says:

      Just read your request. I’m praying for you right now, my friend. You can do this. God is good and always on our side.

  6. Gail Bair says:

    Thank you.

  7. Michele loughnot says:

    Love Billy Graham’s messages. Truly a godly man. Appreciate his testimony and close walk with our Lord Jesus.

  8. Irene peralta says:

    I love what God gives us to learn.

  9. Gaynelle says:

    I find myself wandering away from God’s word. It’s like I can’t stay focused! When I’m feeling the Holy Spirit, it seems I’m on top of the world and more. Then again, I lose focus. Frustrating.

  10. Erin says:

    I wait patiently for our Jesus to return. I hope it’s in my lifetime. I want to be on earth to see His return and meet Him in the clouds. If not, I’ll meet Him after I take my last breath here on earth 🌏. God is awesome.

      This is my prayer also, Erin, and that song came to mind. What a day, glorious day that will be!
