Heaven! What will it be like? Though no one knows for sure but the people who are there, we get many glimpses throughout the Bible as the Spirit describes what really cannot be described.
One thing I am convinced of is that it will certainly NOT BE THE ETERNAL CHURCH SERVICE IN THE SKY! Hallelujah for that!
I would describe it as THE GREAT ADVENTURE! The constant eternal unfolding of an eternal and infinite God. A bucket list that grows ever longer no matter how many things on that list we fulfill, experience, and enjoy! WOW!
One of the supreme things I believe that will bring us ECSTACY is simply the awe and wonder and sharing heaven in relationship with other people. What?
I know, when I think of relationships on planet earth, I think of hard work, masks, social niceties, --- I also think of AVOID! Yes, there are people that are hard to have a relationship with and we all know that we try and avoid such people. BE HONEST!
But in the kingdom, we will be enjoying the company of a glorified human being, one that if they showed up on this planet right now, we would be in danger of worshiping them, because they are so glorious. They will also be experiencing and expressing through their glorified person the VERY LIFE OF THE PERSON OF GOD flowing through them in unhindered fashion!
In them, I will be experiencing God Himself expressing Himself through their unique personhood like light flows through a prism! WOW!
In heaven, just sitting down for a cup of tea with another glorified human being is going to be SHEER ECSTACY!
What does the song say, "I can only imagine?"
