Imagine yourself taking the ultimate, cosmic tour and when the bus stops you look out of the window and hear the tour guide say these words!
"You have now come to Mount Zion and to the heavenly Jerusalem. This is the city of the living God, where thousands and thousands of angels have come to celebrate. Here you will find all of God's dearest children, whose names are written in heaven. And you will find God himself, who judges everyone. Here also are the spirits of those good people who have been made perfect. And Jesus is here! He is the one who makes God's new agreement with us, and his sprinkled blood says much better things than the blood of Abel."
The moment you arrive in Heaven you will begin part two of a never ending life. Life on this earth is simply the first drop of rain in a flood much bigger than the one that floated Noah's ark!
In Heaven you are going to see thousands and thousands of angels celebrating and you will find all of God's dearest children! You will know who they are because their names are written in Heaven.
God is there! Those who have been made perfect are there. And most importantly, for those of us who are the children of Adam, Jesus is there! He is the One who shed His blood to bring us the New Agreement that made it possible for every human being in Heaven to be there!
By the way these verses from Hebrews 12 are not describing an imaginary place. If you believe in Jesus and give your heart to Him, you will hear the Welcome speech to Heaven after you take your last breath on this earth!
"Lord Jesus, thank You for making a place ready for me to be with You, forever in Heaven. Praise Your Holy Name now and forever. Amen."
