Thoughts on Heaven by David Reagan of The LambLion Ministries

II Corinthians 12: 2-4

Heaven is where God resides

eternal heavenly abode – new heaven and new earth

Revelation 21: 1-7

dwelling place of God is among men

refreshing the creation (this earth refreshed and perfected)

destroyed by fire and by water = fundamental change in nature

Dealing with a Tangible Heaven

Alpha and Omega

Plato taught of a bodiless eternity — the Gnostic Bible (heresy)

The Torah – Creation originally perfect and will be redeemed (corrupted by sin)

The New Jerusalem  — John 14:2-3

John’s Description in Revelation 21: 2-9

Dr. Henry Morris – The Revelation Record — could it hold 20 billion people

Activities in Heaven:

We shall serve God — Revelation 22:3

John 21:25

Growth / study / talents continue

events I’d like to see — dividing of the Red Sea, fall of the walls of Jericho, space travel

Our heavenly bodies – at death a temporary intermediate body

Resurrection – receive glorified bodies

When Jesus returns brings our spirits with him / resurrects our bodies  — I Cor 15: 42-44

Glorified Body:

1) imperishable

2) glorious

3) powerful

4) spiritual

5) tangible – recognizable (immune to aging / disease / infirmity)  Isaiah 35: 5-6

Philippians 3: 20-21 description of glorified body

different dimension to our bodies — he could eat

A mystery concerning heaven

Revelation 22:2  the leaves of the tree of life will be used for the healing of the nations

Who are these people — millenial redeemed?

Reign with the Lord forever
