By   •   May 22, 2014


Billy Graham has been asked many questions about heaven over the years. Here is a compilation of seven questions and answers published in Mr. Graham’s My Answer column.

Can you prove heaven exists? I’d like to believe in heaven, but I’m not sure I do.

The only way we could know for sure that heaven exists would be for someone to die and go there—and then come back to life and tell us about it. And that’s exactly what Jesus did…READ MORE

What happens to us the first minute after we die? Do we enter heaven immediately, or do our souls go into some kind of a sleep?

The Bible doesn’t answer all our questions about heaven and life after death—and the reason is because our minds are limited and heaven is far too glorious for us to understand…READ MORE

Where exactly is heaven?  

No, you can’t see heaven with a telescope, because heaven exists beyond anything we can see. But that doesn’t mean heaven isn’t real. Heaven is even more “real” than the earth and the stars…READ MORE

    Is Christains the same as being saved? Or are they different, I’m confused. Thank you

  4. Sue lk says:

    I died in 2006, was dead for 33 minutes. Instantly I was in Heaven. What a place. While I was there, I was washed in the living water and back I came. My family said I made it up, the doctors were speechless and my husband divorced me. I started talking about Heaven 4 years later, folks looked at me and smile..Now a days 9 years later I only tell a few people and they seem to overlook what I am saying..I don’t need any attention for this miracle God allowed me to have. I wish people would believe that Heaven and our Heavenly father is Real. And they would want to serve him as much and I do..Thank you for listening..And God bless.

      Sue, I was expected to die in March, 2012. When I came out of a coma a month later, I was saddened that I’d not had a glimpse of heaven. I believe you and I’d be listening closely while you talked. I believe you. You are blessed.
