What is heaven like? Jesus gives us 5 key revelations, so we would know!
Most of us do want to go to heaven, but have no clear idea of what it is like there. Jesus does not want us to be guessing, so He gives us clear revelations on what heaven is like!
5 revelations on heaven:
- Few things here can prepare us for heaven
At times we say: I died and went to heaven. That’s when things are good in life. But in reality Apostle Paul has been there and here is what Jesus revealed to him about the reality of heaven:
“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.” (1 Corinthians 2:9)
- We belong to heaven
Earth is beautiful, but it was meant only as our timely abode. This Scripture proves it.
“For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.” (Hebrews 11:10)
Abraham knew he did not belong here. His true home and origin was from above.

- It’s a real place
Heaven is a real place, it is not some imaginary fairy country. And it is suitable for humans to inhabit it!
Here is what Jesus said:
“My Father’s house has many rooms.” John 14:2
It has houses, roads of gold and other practical things used for life.
- There is only one door to heaven
Jesus is that door and He is the only one:
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me” (John 14:6).
There is no other name on this planet by which we can be saved!
- Heaven is not a paradise
Garden of Eden was called the paradise and it had to be tilted, the houses had to be built. However, heaven is a city! A huge and amazing, magnificent city with paved streets, houses, gates, etc. Read Revelations 21 to learn more.
So, God reveals us enough to want to go to heaven and expect it earnestly. Jesus has paid the high price of His blood for us to enter.
