I enjoy looking for ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN! God's word says repent the kingdom of God is at hand! Kingdom of God right here on Earth. My life has been a series of horrible events, even while walking with God, it was hell on Earth even as a Strong Woman of faith! Then God opened my spiritual eyes to see how I can HEAVEN ON EARTH through it all! God thy kingdom come on Earth as it is in Heaven!
The most exciting thing about being in Heaven will be seeing GOD with Jesus sitting at His right side!

I agree, Laura. Can you imagine that perfect love we will have for one another and for the one we were married to on earth? I think my DH is my best earthly friend down here but sometimes we disagree on things etc etc. but up there, just perfect love and best of all friendships like never before down here. Then knowing our friendship is equally the same with everyone we meet. Like one loving family. I get so excited to think of going to heaven. Remember the song, "I have never been this homesick before?

I remember asking this question in your first team you set up. I am comforted to know that my husband will know me when he sees me as well as my mom. Yet the relationships will be different. Because we will all be one family; brothers and sisters in Christ. he will be our groom or husband and we will be His bride.For he told the Jews that there will, be no marriages in heaven.

My name is Laura and I live in Wisconsin. I am a Powerful Prism Panther.

Will We Know One Another In Heaven
I believe with all my heart that we will based upon the following scriptures.
Please share your thoughts and scriptures.

2 Samuel 12:22-23 (King David Believed It)
22 And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether GOD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
Matthew 17:3-4 (These disciples recognized these of whom they had never met on earth)
3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
1 Corinthians 13:12 (Great Assurance)
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known
1 John 3:2 (His Disciples recognized Jesus in his Glorified Body)
21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Philippians 3:212 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
1 Corinthians 15:6 (500 hundred more recognize Jesus)
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
Luke 10:20 (Since our names are written in Heaven, shouldn't we know one another)
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in Heaven
Ephesians 3:15
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named
Isaiah 33:17
17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.
Numbers 27:12-13 (Moses was going to be joined with those he knew)
12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.
13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.
Luke 16:19-31 (Not a parable, but real event with real names spoken by Jesus. These recognized one another)
19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:0 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
1 Thessalonians 2:19 Paul was looking forward to seeing those he shared Christ with)
19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
1 Thessalonians 4:17 (Imagine being caught up with your loved ones)
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Matthew 26:29 (Jesus was looking forward to seeing them, and would they not too recognize one another)
29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
Hebrews 12:23 (to me, I think our minds will even be greater to recognize; not failure to recognize)
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
Matthew 8:11 (They will be recognized)
11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
Hebrews 11:16 (as citizens of this wonderful place, I think it suggests we will know one another)
16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
I think people are worried about missing those in Heaven who will not be there and be sad. God will wipe away every tear, plus, I think personally, our understanding will be so different than it is here. Has not God done everything possible for our loved ones to be saved? I think we will certainly see God's justice. However, it will be, for sure Heaven is a place of joy and happiness and fellowship. So, I truly believe, I will recognize my baby that I never got to hold,, my parents, and many other saved loved ones who have gone on. I believe there will be loving relationships among all of God's people.

PleasE, share your thoughts and any scriptures you can find on the subject. Let's grow together.

PLEASE SHARE IN THIS DISCUSSION. WHAT WERE YOU TAUGHT ABOUT THIS PLACE THAT JESUS WENT AWAY TO PREPARE? SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS, OTHER SCRIPTURES, AND EVEN MORE PICS THAT SPARK OUR IMAGINATION OF SUCH A PLACE THE BIBLE DESCRIBES.

Description of the Place Jesus Went Away to Prepare
I hope you follow along in your Bibles (Revelation chapters 21 and part of chapter 22)
1. There are 7 New Things Revealed
(1) the new heaven
(2) the new earth (no sea) (21:1)
(3) the new Jerusalem
(4) the new Temple
(5) the new light
(6) the new Paradise and the river of the water of life
2. In Verse 11 John describes the Holy City, New Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven( 21: 2,10 ) from God shining like a jasper stone clear as crystal appearance of a diamond


(21:18). (Imagine 1500 miles long,1500 miles wide, and 1500 miles high) (four-square 21:16)
3. Verses 11-25 John describes the following:
(1) The city is enclosed by a Wall great and high (21:12)of which is either 216 feet high or 216 feet thick. (unsure which). It is made as of Jasper (21:19-20) while the city was PURE GOLD (21:18).(imagine so pure like clear glass)
(2) The wall had 12 foundations made with different precious stones . (21:19-21

(WE CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE SPLENDOR)




(3) It has a total of 12 gate with the names of the tribes of Israel on them; each made of a single pearl guarded by an Angel. (there are 3 gates on each of the 4 sides of the wall. (21:21) The gates are never closed (21:24-25 for the nations of the earth shall bring their glory and honour into it.


(4) The street is Pure Gold ( it is singular not streets) (Imagine the length of that street!! (21:22)
(5) it is illumined by the glory of God (21:23)
(6) (22:1-2 a pure river of water, clear as crystal proceeds from the throne of God and the Lamb
(7)22:2 in the midst of the street of it, and of either side of the river, was there the tree of life with its 12 varieties of fruit, yielding each month its fresh crop, and its leaves were for the healing of the nations.
4. There are some things that will definitely not be there, while other things will not be needed.
21:22 , 22:5 no need for a temple, no need of the sun, or moon (read to see
why)
21:23 nothing that defiles or works abomination will ever go into it. (A place
of Perfectness; no sin nor curses will ever be present)
As pretty as some of the pictures are painted from the minds of man, it would fail to compare to the reality of what we will one day see as Believers. What an eternal home! Oh that the world would accept Jesus as Savior and be there too.

Who are some people in the Bible who saw Heaven?
Another person was Moses.
When Moses looked into heaven, he saw the true tabernacle of God. Then he constructed the earthly tabernacle accordingly.

Exodus 24:30 Than you shall erect the tabernacle according to its plan which you have been shown in the mountain.(previous verses show Moses in the cloud covered Mt. Sinai conversing with God)

I love the this scripture about Christ: Hebrews 9:24 For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, not to appear in the presence of God for us.

1st Question:
What did Paul mean by the “Third Heaven”?

The first heaven is the Atmospheric heaven where the air we breathe is and where the birds fly etc. The atmosphere extends upward from earth about 3,000 miles.

The second heaven is the Celestial heaven where the sun, moon, and stars are located.

The third heaven is the Divine Heaven where the abode of God is, the holy angels and departed saints.

The scriptures use the word “heaven” over 500 times. In the Old Testament translation from Hebrew to English means “the heights”. In the New Testament the Greek word to English means “that which is raised up”
So we think of it as “that which is above”

In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 it speaks of God comes Down from heaven and man goes Up to heaven in the same passage.

Imagine the distance to the 3rd heaven by taking in this information.
If light travels 186,000 per second and 11,160,000 per minute, it takes the sun 8 light minutes away to reach earth. Our solar system has a diameter of 700 light minutes across ( 8 billion miles) The galaxy we live in is only one of billions. With certain telescopes, objects as far away as 5 billion light years or more, can be observed. Heaven is beyond the celestial atmosphere

Where is Heaven? 2 Corinthians 12”2-4 gives us the answer; Paul says, “I know a man in Christ who 14 years ago, whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows such a man caught up into the Third Heaven into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak.

Heaven (Paradise) is real. Jesus said to the repentant thief on the cross, “Today you will be with me in Paradise”

2nd question
Who are some people in the Bible who saw Heaven?

Ezekiel saw heaven, and sought to describe the glory of the Lord by using symbols to try to convey when words failed to do it adequately.
Ezekiel 1:1 Now it came about in the 30th year on the 5th day of the 4th month, while I was by the river Chebar among the exiles, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God. Read1:4-28 for the details.

. Isaiah saw heaven, his attention was drawn to the One sitting on the throne.
Isaiah 6:5 Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips. And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King the LORD of hosts.
