Living in Light of Heaven (Free Booklets Inside!)

Then I saw a new heaven and new earth… (Revelation 21:1NIV)

Heaven is the perfectly ordered and harmonious enjoyment of God
and of one another in God
” (Augustine)

The first time I encountered with Randy Alcorn’s Heaven booklet, I’m falling in love over and over again with the subject of Heaven (or accurately speaking “New Earth”) that he portrait in his writing. He is not writing about how he went to heaven and back again like many junk books available in our bookstores today – he is writing and picturing Heaven the way Scripture describes it – “a bright, vibrant, and physical New Earth, free from sin, suffering, and death, and brimming with Christ’s presence, wondrous natural beauty, and the richness of human culture as God intended it”. Most important of all – God will be the King of this “Holy City, the New Jerusalem” (Revelation 21:2)!

Randy Alcorn writes in his introduction to Heaven’s booklet:
“Maybe you feel as if you’ve passed your peak, physically or emotionally, and that your best opportunities are behind you. Perhaps you’re burdened, discouraged, depressed, or even traumatized. Perhaps your dreams—your marriage, career, or ambitions—have crumbled. Perhaps you’ve become cynical or have lost hope.

An understanding of the true Christian teaching about Heaven (not the popular caricatures of Heaven) can change all that. That’s why I wrote Heaven, a full-length treatment of the subject that deals with all the questions people ask about this great subject. The purpose of this little booklet is to give you just a taste of the glorious truth about Heaven.

God’s people in ages past had a source of strength and perspective largely unknown to us today: Heaven. It was their central reference point, the North Star by which they could navigate their lives. But in contemporary society, Heaven has fallen off our radar screens.

Whenever I think about Heaven,” a pastor said to me, “it makes me depressed. I’d rather just cease to exist when I die.”
Why?” I asked.
I can’t stand the thought of that endless tedium. To float around in the clouds with nothing to do but strum a harp . . . it’s all so terribly boring. Heaven doesn’t sound much better than Hell. I’d rather be annihilated than spend eternity in a place like that.”

Where did this Bible-believing, seminary-educated pastor get such a view of Heaven? Certainly not from Scripture, where the apostle Paul says that to depart and be with Christ is far better than staying on Earth (Philippians 1:23). My friend was more honest about it than most, yet I’ve found that many Christians share the same misconceptions about Heaven.

Our unbiblical assumption that Heaven won’t be a real, earthly place blinds us to what Scripture actually says. Rarely do we hear descriptions that capture what the Bible portrays as a New Earth with a great capital city made with precious stones; a New Earth that contains trees and rivers, and where resurrected people come in and out of the gates, engaged in meaningful relationships and productive activity.

J. C. Ryle, a nineteenth-century British theologian, said, “I pity the man who never thinks about heaven.” We could also say, “I pity the man who never thinks accurately about Heaven.” It’s our inaccurate thinking, I believe, that motivates us to think so little about Heaven.

As you will see, the problem is not that the Bible doesn’t tell us much about Heaven. It’s that we don’t pay attention to what it tells us”

Read and study the Book of Revelation for a start!
Then, I recommend you to buy Randy Alcorn’s Heaven book or audiobook.
I guarantee you – your life will change
and your passion for God and His glory will be heighten. Amen.
