I’ve never been able to fully wrap my mind around this concept of heaven. Because people make it seem like once you hit heaven, everything is perfect, yet they say it’s still a learning experience. It can’t be perfect and be a learning experience. If it’s a learning experience that would mean there is still sin and “wrong” in heaven because people are learning how to become perfect. If once you’re in heaven it’s an automatic perfection, then what is the purpose? People say there is no money, no relationships, no sex, no futile things, etc. Some people say all heaven is would be worshiping God 24/7 like some of the angels. First of all God is not vainglorious, I don’t know if I believe he has a sect of angels simply worshiping him day in and day out not to mention that he would want us doing the same thing on top of those angels. That was a dream that is found in Isaiah 6:3 and Revelation 4:8 and let’s not skip the fact that those were angels.
It has always been strictly by faith that I’ve even bothered to remember it, but if you know me you know I don’t speak about it much or base anything on it either.
It used to be said that heaven is perfection and that it’s so indescribable that its full magnificence is beyond expression. At the same time for those that wanted a glimpse they would cite a verse that talked of heaven having streets of gold Revelation 21:21 (CEV) and all these different jewels.
I know personally I am to the point where I don’t wanna hear anything about heaven if we can’t get a glimpse of it here on earth. I mean I have yet to do a study but all this talk of going to heaven, I don’t remember until Jesus in the gospels. Unless I’m taking it out of context Jesus said what we bind on earth and loose on earth will be bound and loosed in heaven… Matthew 16:18-20 and Matthew 18:15-20 (NIV). If this is what we have to look forward to, I’m sorry I’m not with it. Too many people have loosed nonsense on earth. To this day those people don’t find fault with their message and continue to spew the vile lie that these things are of God. NO!
I can’t prove heaven, and I am not living to get to heaven; I am trying to live the best life I possibly can. That does not mean a life of self-seeking satisfaction or over-indulgence, that means I’m trying to live a life primarily of balance and that has the ability to be sustained. The pure act of any one thing, pretty much proliferates that one thing. The age old saying goes, violence begets violence. Well in the same way love produces love, selfishness produces its equal and so on and so forth.
