9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say,“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9)
Doesn’t that verse just get you excited! If you feel anything like I feel when I read that verse then I know your mind is probably racing right now trying to conceive what it might be like. The Apostle Paul wrote the above mentioned verse fourteen years after a near death experience that he had. Paul writes that he was taken to heaven during this time and heard things so outstanding that he could not even put them into words.
3 Yes, only God knows whether I was in my body or outside my body. But I do know 4 that I was caught up to paradise and heard things so astounding that they cannot be expressed in words, things no human is allowed to tell. (2 Corinthians 12:3-4)
What could it be? What did he hear and see that he couldn’t even describe? He sure leaves a lot up to the imagination even though he said it was so wonderful that our human minds can not even imagine what awaits us. Still, I cant help but wonder what life with Jesus will be like in heaven. To see Jesus as he really is. To walk and talk with him with the beauty of heavens background behind you. To ask him and questions that you may have and to hear him answer you in an auditory voice. Wow, that gives me goosebumps. To see all of our loved ones who were in Christ when they died. To explore the boundaries of heaven with our friends and family. To never taste, death, sickness, pain, or sadness again.
Why would anyone not want to go to heaven? Just the curiosity of what is there waiting for us is enough to stimulate anyones mind to be determined to go and see for themselves. If you are reading this post and you have not accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior, I plead with you; don’t miss out on heaven. Are you not even a little bit curious as to what Paul saw in heaven? There will be no one coming back from heaven to tell you what is really there waiting for us. You can only find out for yourself.
I dont usually do this in my post but I feel a great urge to pray with you right now. If you want to get to heaven and experience the greatness that is waiting for you then please follow me in this prayer with a sincere heart.
Dear Lord Jesus, please save me. Forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. I believe that you are the son of God and that you died on the cross for me. Wash away all my sins and live in me as I will live in you. In Jesus name, Amen.
I hope you prayed this prayer with me. If you did pray with a sincere heart then you are now a resident of heaven. Your name has been written in the book of life and you will see for yourself what awaits you in heaven firsthand.
