Linda Taylor: Earth vs. Heaven
November 12, 2010
In Heaven, we will all have a mansion.
John 14:1: "Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. 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. 3. 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."
There will treasures in Heaven. Our mansion will not have moth or rust, and no one will break in and rob us of our treasures.
Matthew 6:19: "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. 20. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal."
There will be no tears nor sickness nor death in Heaven.
Rev. 21:4: "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
We will also have heavenly bodies.
I Corinthians 15:49: "And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly man."
In Heaven, there will be no more of trying to keep up with your neighbors. No one will be sick again. No one will die, so that means there will be no more goodbyes. And, there will be no more tears.
So, what is it that you may miss here on earth? Trying to have what everyone else seems to have and live in debt? Will you miss illness, tears, burying your loved ones?
Are you looking for someone to love you now, someone that will accept you as who you are? Well, that has already happened here on earth — it's God's way of preparing you for heaven.
God has loved you from the beginning. Seek God out and you will also feel that wonderful love that God gives freely to all of us each and every day here on earth, that will continue in Heaven forever.
Then, when you meet God in Heaven, you won't have to worry about what you're going to miss here on earth. You will live in true love and happiness forever. Earth can't beat that.
John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
God Bless everyone.
