There are more things in heaven and earth. The Bible’s story begins with “God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1) and concludes with “a new heaven and a new earth” (Rev. 21:1)
This article briefly discuss about Heaven and Earth and also tell us how Heaven and on Earth look like.
Heaven, also known as the heavens, is a common religious cosmological or transcendent supernatural location where beings such as deities, angels, souls, saints, or venerated ancestors are said to be born, enthroned, or reside.
The Bible also state that Heaven is a real place where the people of God will live one day. In fact, heaven is where God and the angels live.
Again, the Bible doesn’t provide us with all the information we would like, but one thing is for certain: Heaven won’t be dull and will be more enjoyable than any party you’ve ever been to.
What will we do then for all of time? The solution is that we’ll assist God in managing the universe. Do you recall the parable that Jesus shared about the nobleman who gave his slaves money to invest?
The man said “”You will rule over ten cities.” The next servant had seen a 50% increase so his master said, “Rule over five cities.” And the man who hid his money had even that amount taken from him in punishment (Luke 19:11-27).
The narrative is a depiction of what heaven will be like because one of the servants had doubled his money.
To run the new heaven and new earth, we will make use of our gifts. Teachers will teach, singers will sing, preachers will preach, and bakers will bake.
Soldiers may march out to combat and quarterbacks may chuck passes, for all I know. Consider the blooms that the botanists will research. Talented scientists will travel between galaxies to explore their wonders.
Who Is in Heaven Right Now?
Answering this query is not tough. Because heaven is where God lives, God is there. The Lord Jesus ascended from the earth shortly after his resurrection and has been in heaven ever since (Acts 1:9-11).
According to the Bible, angels are present in heaven. In reality, there are countless angels and other celestial beings who all devote their lives to serve the Lord in different capacities.
What is heaven like?
Many today wonder how heaven looks like, but the scripture has given answers to the question. Below are the bible verses which prove how Heaven looks like;
1. Houses and vineyards: Isaiah 65:21 (KJV) says; “And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them”.
2. Perfect peace: Isaiah 65:25 (KJV) says; “The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord”.
3. Fruitful gardens: Isaiah 35:1 (KJV) says; “The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose”.
4. All things are new: Revelation 21:1, 2 (KJV) says; “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband”.
5. No tears or pain: Revelation 21:4 (KJV) says; “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away”.
According to science, The Earth is the third planet from the Sun and the only known astronomical object to support life.
While there is a lot of water all over the Solar System, only Earth has liquid surface water. The ocean covers approximately 71% of the Earth’s surface, dwarfing polar ice, lakes, and rivers.
God created the heavens and the earth in the beginning. And the earth was formless and void, and darkness covered the face of the deep.
And the Holy Spirit moved across the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and light appeared. (Read Gen 1:1).
Every other planet in the solar system was named after a Greek or Roman deity, but for at least a thousand years, some cultures described our world with the Germanic word “earth,” which simply means “the ground.”
Every 23.9 hours, the Earth rotates on its axis, defining day and night for surface dwellers. Seasons are caused by this axis of rotation being tilted 23.4 degrees away from the plane of Earth’s orbit around the sun.
Summer occurs in whichever hemisphere is tilted closer to the sun, while winter occurs in the opposite hemisphere.
Each hemisphere receives roughly the same amount of light in the spring and fall. Each year, on two specific dates known as the equinoxes, both hemispheres receive equal illumination.
Which planet is similar to Earth?
The most planet that is similar to earth are Venus and Mars.
According to science, Venus is the planet closest to the Sun. It is sometimes referred to as “twin” planet because it is nearly as large and has a similar composition to Earth.
Venus, as an interior planet to Earth, appears in the sky as a morning or evening star, never far from the Sun.
Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the Solar System’s second-smallest planet, larger only than Mercury. Mars is named after the Roman god of war in English.
Mars’ atmosphere is thinner than that of Earth. The fact that 21 percent of the air on Earth is oxygen makes it an ideal place for human life.
However, oxygen accounts for 0.13 percent of the air on Mars. The majority of it is carbon dioxide, which is toxic to humans.
