I have always imagined how heaven will looks like: so many birds singing sweet songs, lion dining with the lamb, street of gold, room made of diamond, ceiling made of silver, and lots more.

Recently I traveled to see my niece, when I got there, she was watching a Barbie collection and she was so focus on it. As I sat with her, I began to see beautiful sites and what really drew my attention was the beautiful mansion, the golden streets, the perfect vegetation and the robe they wore. I said to myself perhaps that’s the way Heaven would look like.

Then I started picturing heaven like those images I saw in the barbie collection until one day I saw a text in the bible. That scripture text has changed the way I view heaven and I will be delighted to share it with you.

1 Corinthians 2:9 kjv
But as it is written: “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”

So if it can come into the mind of humans to design those beautiful castle in Barbie collections, build Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab structure in Dubai, Space Needle in Seattle, Sydney Opera House,The Shard in London and many other great sites built by man, yet the Bible says eye have not seen what He is preparing for us.

The bibles says in John 14:2
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Just take a minute and imagine how a city would looks like if the architect is Jesus Christ. The God of perfection has promised to prepare a place for us, so imagine how that city will be like. Do you really wants to miss it?

In John 14:1-3
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

The important thing is to believe in Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and personal saviour and then every imagination about heaven will be actualized.

John 10:9 I am the gate. If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture.

John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies.

and lastly
Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Remain steadfast in the lord, keep trusting him.
Soon the cloud will open and the trumpet shall sound, and by His grace, we all will be in that mansion He is preparing for us in Jesus name-amen.
