Bible Verses on HeavenBible Scriptures Describing Heaven

Matthew 18:10 See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?

Revelation 5:9-13 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.” Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

Revelation 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Revelation 22:1-5  Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.  No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.

Heaven Our True and Eternal Home Bible Scriptures

1 Kings 8:30 And listen to the plea of your servant and of your people Israel, when they pray toward this place. And listen in heaven your dwelling place, and when you hear, forgive

1 Corinthians 2:7-9 But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as it is written,”What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”

2 Corinthians 5:8 Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

Philippians 1:21-23 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.

Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

The soul and body are separate. Like an egg – you can separate the yolk from the white. Our spirit goes to be with the Lord “Absent with the body present with the Lord” 2 Corinthians 5:8. The dead in Christ shall rise first and those that remain shall join them in the sky, Thessalonians 4:17. This is the resurrection of the body, made new like Jesus’ body was made new and indestructible. There is a separation of spirit and body which will rejoin and live indestructible for ever and ever amen.

I wish I wish it is 2010 to 2011 but it Was 1990 to 1991 but I want to go back to 2010 to 2011 and fix the mistakes I made what I should of done and not done


David January 23, 2016 at 9:38 am

Don’t live in regret. If you will hand your mistakes to Jesus He will forgive them (1John 1:9) and He will cause them to work together for your good and His glory (Romans 8:28). Looking back will only mess up TODAY! God will lead you, Rebekah. You have so much to live for now. Learn and keep moving with the Lord! “Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:13

Amen David. We should never trip over what’s behind us! Thank you sir. Well said in your comment.

To have sins forgiven today we must obey the New Testament. Such as 37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” 38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”


Jack Wellman March 5, 2017 at 8:08 am

No, to have sins forgiven you must repent and trust in the Savior. You should get baptized, but the water doesn’t take sins away…it is only the blood of the Lamb of God that does that.


Joseph Mattucci March 23, 2017 at 7:59 pm

Three things to keep in mind when studying scripture.
.Who wrote it
.To whom was it written
.And what was happening in the world at the time.
Galatians 2:9 – James Peter and John shook the right hand of Paul and agreed they would preach to the Jews and Paul would preach the salvation of the cross to the Gentiles. The Gentiles could and did understand Mosaic laws.


Jack Wellman March 23, 2017 at 8:43 pm

Thank you Mr. Mattucci. Yes, the Gentiles understood the Mosaic Laws, or really, the reason for the Mosaic Law, and that is that they could never take away sins but with Christ they are no longer necessary, for we are not under the law but under grace (Gal. 3), “For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them” (Gal 3:10).

Do our loved ones have awareness of what’s happening on earth even when they are in the prescence of the Lord? Also, do you think they can hear our prayers or hear when we talk to them? I recently lost my mother and I want to know if she can hear me when I talk to her or if her spirit can see/watch over me.


Jack Wellman September 1, 2017 at 8:50 am

Hello Claretta. I am sorry for your loss, but those who have passed away and are with the Lord cannot come back or see what we are doing. There is nothing in the Bible about this being true. Please read this to see about those who have passed away at this link:
