THE GOLD PAGE Represents Heaven, a real place. Heaven is a prepared place
for a prepared person. The most beautiful place of all anywhere. The streets there
are paved with gold! When the Lord Jesus left this earth He said that He was going
to get a place ready for us, where we can be with Him forever
(John 14:2, 3). He has been preparing this place
heaven for a long time. Here are some wonderful things about heaven
mentioned in the Bible.
- There will be no sun or moon there. The light from the face of Jesus will
brighten heaven (Revelation 21:23). We shall never
need to rest, or go to bed. There will be endless day, no night there
- There will be no tears, sadness, sorrow or pain
(Revelation 21:4). There will be no death there.
We shall live forever, freed from earthly trials. We shall have a body like
Jesus (1 John 3:2, 3); we can jump, fly, travel,
powered by the energy source, God. Just as Jesus was no longer limited, after
He arose from the dead, so shall we be like Him.
- There shall be no sin there (Revelation 21:27).
One sin, getting into heaven, would ultimately destroy it, just as earth is
being destroyed now, by sin.
- God is there (Revelation 22:3). He loves us and
made heaven for us. He wants us to be in this wonderful and beautiful place.
There will be thousands of angels (Revelation 5:11),
to be our servants.
- Heaven and its streets are pure gold, but like glass. Heaven is a gigantic
golden cube about 1,400 miles high, and about 1,400 miles wide and
about 1,400 miles long (Revelation 21:16, 19-21).
- We shall see the Lord Jesus there. We shall talk with Him, worship and
praise Him, and see His nail-pierced hands and feet.
We do not get to heaven because we are good. Only one kind of
person goes to heaven; saved, forgiven people those who have given
their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ. Unforgiven sin keeps us out of heaven.
Note: When speaking of the heart with children, it is good to
remember they are very literal in their thinking. We are teaching about the
person we are inside, the real you, not what is beating in our chest.
We speak then of a sinful heart, rather than a DARK heart.
