Where Is Heaven?

By   •   October 23   •   Topics:

Many people have asked, “Where is heaven?” We are not told in the Scripture where heaven is. Some students have tried to take some Scriptures and put them together and say that heaven is in the north. They quote Psalm 48:2, “The joy of the whole earth is . . . on the sides of the north . . . ” The magnetic needle points north. Perhaps the Celestial City is in the north. We do not know. But no matter where heaven is, it will be where Christ is.

Many people ask, “Do you believe that heaven is a literal place?” Yes! Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you.” The Bible teaches that Enoch and Elijah ascended in a literal body to a literal place that is just as real as Los Angeles, London, or Algiers! The Bible also teaches that heaven will be a place of beauty. It is described in the Bible as “a building of God”-“a city”-“a better country”-“an inheritance”-“a glory.”

The Bible also indicates that heaven will be a place of great understanding and knowledge of things that we never learned down here.

  2. linda says:

    I believe in heaven. I believe that it’s a home prepared for the faithful by our Lord Jesus. I every day ask for strength from God to help me keep his word and do what He commands me to do. I prepare myself every day to enter the holy city. Dear God, help me fight all the remaining battles through the strength that you give me every day. And when my fighting life is over I will be at comfort with you in heaven.

  3. Darlene Luberts says:

    I am asking the Lord to help me to establish a regular prayer time and communion with him every day. I want to be closer and closer to Him and be able to help others find Him in these frightening days we live in. I ask for prayer for my daughters to come closer to the Lord and to each other now to and that wounded relationships among all of us will be healed. We also pray for the Peace of Israel! Thank you!

  9. Gerald Holder says:

    I am concerned about my faith, and my relation with God thanks

    1. Robert says:

      That’s called. Conviction. Listen to it Repentance is the proper response which mean to turn 180 degrees. If you are concerned it almost certainly means you know in your own heart you are not living right and pleasing to God. The only other reason one can be concerned is if they have a fear that torments which is generally a spirit that needs to be resisted. Only you can decide to get very serious and true with God. If we try to live anything less our lives will not be at peace
      Hope this helps. I will pray for you

      Lord, help with her unbelief. You are the way, the truth and the life. You are the ONE who changes hearts. Just receive & BELIEVE. Amen.

  10. Eminent Mensah says:

    Does my spirit look the same as my physical body?

    1. Lisa Carroll says:

      Our Spirit is identical to Jesus. Amen. When He comes to take us home, we will have new bodies, glorified bodies. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God. : )
