Heaven Is Real

Beloved of Christ Jesus, for those who believe in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, heaven is not merely a dream but a reality that is certain, because where the Lord Jesus lives there we will live. Hence, our existence on earth is temporary. That is why the Apostle Paul told the church in Corinth; “… when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.” (2 Corinthians 5:1). When the Lord Jesus ascended to heaven, He was no longer with His people physically, nonetheless He says in John 18:7, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.” It is good that the Lord Jesus ascended into heaven, so that His believers will receive the Holy Spirit who is “…… greater than the spirit  who lives in the world.” (1 John 4:4), and sent to strengthen, to sustain, to comfort and to equip us with His mighty power. Through His Spirit, the Lord Jesus is surely with us always to the very end of the age (Matthew 28:20b). Beloved of Christ Jesus, our hope in the Lord Jesus never fails because in Him we have full assurance and a sure hope. May God our Father give you grace and peace. Amen!
