Heaven: One Minute After You Die
We all wonder what lies beyond death’s door. Is there another world, another place? See what Dr. Irwin Lutzer, Senior Pastor of The Moody Church, has to say.
How long is eternity? It’s not comprehensible. “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” (2 Peter 3:8 NIV).
Some people think that heaven will be one long church service. But, the Bible teaches that heaven is a place of activity. Pastor Lutzer thinks that we will continue to learn in heaven and continue to do research.
A great American theologian, Jonathan Edwards (1703 – 1758) said, “In heaven we are going to continue to study God because the ideas of God go on for all of eternity.”
In heaven we will communicate with one another, providing the opportunity to speak with famous believers, such as Abraham, Jacob, and others. We can spend as much time as we like with them.
We will be given assignments and responsibility. We will rule with Christ, perhaps over areas as large as galaxies. In (Luke 19:11-27 NIV) it states, “‘Well done, my good servant!’ his master replied. ‘Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.’ (Luke 19:17)
Heaven will be an exciting place and not boring. So much so, that we will continually sing praises to God.
