Heaven.

Although Heaven is mentioned often in the Bible there’s only one instance where we have a glimpse of a description. In John 14:2 Jesus says: In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.

I suppose Jesus used this description because He wanted an example that His listeners could relate to. They were used to seeing palaces and mansions so He described Heaven as a building.

Some time ago, I came across another description of Heaven. This priest said in a sermon that when we die and meet God, He will sit us on His lap like a little child and He will show us our life all over again. Just like a movie. There, we will see all the good and the bad we have done. All the opportunities we missed when we could have helped others less fortunate than ourselves, all the hurt we have caused by what we have done or said, whether intentionally or not. And there, on His lap, will be our own Heaven or hell.

Now imagine it is really so … Imagine seeing your whole life as a movie …

Imagine you are now a Film Director … what an opportunity you have to make sure your movie will have a happy ending !!!

  1. Oh yes! I LOVE this description of how we will see our lives through the eyes of God, AND it makes you want to try especially hard to be a good example of Christianity to all in ones life. There much to atone - I begin anew every day.

    Excellent post, Victor,
    Blessings,

  2. Great post, Victor. The key is as Abbey pointed out- seeing our lives through and with God. Viewing our lives on our own can either be quite impossible or we can deceive ourselves. With God our lives are viewed with justice and great mercy.

  3. Hello Abbey and Karinann,

    I fear seeing my life all over again with God. I pray He's really really forgiving!

    God bless.

  4. Hi Victor! I really liked this post - in some ways I actually look forward to my judgment as weird as that may sound. I am not afraid of walking through my "ugly years" anymore because I have discussed them so often with Jesus. Mostly I am curious about seeing the TRUTH through Jesus' eyes. I admit to a touch of fear about the faults that I currently can't seem to overcome but it seems unlikely that the Lord would leave any of us just "half finished" if He doesn't have to. My hope is in the fact that "Love covers a multitude of sins" and since Jesus is my "Love" I am trusting that He will do this. Maybe I'm too optimistic but I hope this will be the case!

  5. The good news is, God loves us and wants us with Him. No matter what. We just need to say yes. Great post.
