Description of Heaven

Have you read the description of Heaven in the bible?

Revelation 4

New International Version (NIV)
The Throne in Heaven

4 After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” 2 At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. 3 And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. 4 Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. 5 From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits[a] of God. 6 Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.

In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. 7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. 8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty who was, and is, and is to come.”

9 Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.”

  • I just read the book. It was wonderful. I had a feel good moment.

  • I agree with you Joe. I used to be very skeptical about heaven and all of it. Certain events in my life have convinced me otherwise. What you said is true. The world is regressing back to pagan societies. Hold on to what you believe. It's all I can say. Cheers

  • I didn't see the movie yet, but I read the book. It was a feel good book. It's something we need in this world today. Everything that was held sacred is now considered irrelevant. What was considered taboo is now the norm.   

  • It was a wonderful, feel good movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it. 

  • I read the book and saw the movie. It was really good. Out of the mouth of babes!

  • Has anyone seen the movie Heaven is for Real?

  •  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither [whatsoever] worketh abomination, or [maketh] a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. Revelations 21:27

    Truly looking forward to this day!

  • I'll be happy when the day comes, when I meet my creator face to face. 

  • Once again, I agree with you too-Ilene :)

  • I am so looking forward to heaven. Our world is getting more and more evil as the days past.
