From Dennis

      How much do you know and understand about what happens to you when you die? The last question my mom ever asked me was “When I die, what will be the first thing I will see?” I am

glad I knew the answer.

      Jesus said about the beggar Lazarus, “Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom” (Luke 16:22). My answer to my mom was, “When you die, the first thing you will see will be the angels coming to take you to Paradise.”

      How often do you think about Heaven? How much do you know about the resurrection and Hell, Heaven’s only alternative?

      Many people have questions about these things. They think the Hereafter is a dark, mysterious subject. Quite the contrary. Jesus and the New Testament writers answer most, if not all, of these questions. Jesus had great discourses about Judgment day. Just read Matthew chapters 24 and 25. In the last book of the Bible, The Revelation of Jesus Christ, we are given a tremendous amount of information about Judgment day and the Eternal City of Heaven. We are told who will be there and what it will be like.

     The answers keep coming. What kind of body will we have (1 Corinthians 15)? What will the end of the world be like (2 Peter 3)? Will we remember our life back on earth? Jesus tells us this answer in Luke 16:25-28.

      The Lord encouraged us when he said, "Lay up for yourselves treasure in Heaven...For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matthew 6:20-21). The more we think about, and know about, our eternal home, the more we will want to go there!

Read on and dream with me about Heaven.
