WHAT WILL HEAVEN BE LIKE?
1. GOD WILL ESTABLISH A NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away… Revelation 21:1
2. YOU WILL NEVER SUFFER AGAIN.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” 5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Revelation 21:4-5
3. YOU WILL LIVE WITH GOD FOREVER.
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. Revelation 21:3
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14
THE FINAL JUDGMENT
- THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books…15 If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-12, 15
TALK IT OVER

- Knowing that one day you will be judged, what changes might you need to make in your life today?
- How does it make you feel to know that the God of the universe wants to dwell with you forever?
