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.

Prayer for the day

Living Lord Jesus, the knowledge that You have prepared a place for me in heaven brings comfort and delight to my soul!

      For the place of forgiveness and the afterlife

  4. Evelyn says:

    What do people do in heaven besides sing & praise the Lord? I don’t mean to sound ungrateful for His sacrifice, do we live a normal life?

    I remember how my older sister, Kim, loved to watch Billy Graham when we were younger. What a great man of God! My step mother accepted Christ at a BG revival in Detroit. I accepted Jesus in 1986 and recorded BG programs to watch on Sunday morning. Those tapes are getting worn. Is there a library of Billy Graham that I can purchase, perhaps on CD? I ‘d rather watch his reruns than most Christian programs. Please let me know! Thank you and God Bless!

    O! How wonderful being in heaven. A place of peace and joy. No suffering or tears there. But a place where we will praise and Worship God with his glory that fills the place. This is for those who have faith in Jesus and have turned to Jesus asking forgiveness. Thank you Jesus you felt I was so important that you came to earth as man and paid the price which I had to pay. Thank You Jesus. Glory to God. Amen
