Is Heaven Real?
In a 2011 Gallup poll, 85 percent of the general population said they believed heaven is real. While you would expect that from regular churchgoers, it’s interesting that a belief in heaven is so high across other groups and communities. So many people think heaven exists, but how do they know?
The Bible assures us that heaven is a definite place. Jesus said, “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would not have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am” (John 14:2-3). Heaven contains buildings constructed with tangible materials for real people to live in.
You can find homeless people just about everywhere in the world. In some ways, Christians are homeless. Their true home is waiting for them in heaven, prepared by Jesus Christ. “Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling” (2 Corinthians 5:1-2).
Heaven is a real place where your soul and spirit live forever. We know heaven is real because of Jesus Christ, who came from heaven. As sinners, we can’t get to heaven on our own—but Jesus made a way for you to go there by paying the price for your sins on the cross.
Put your faith in Jesus Christ today and know that you will have eternal life in heaven. As Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies” (John 11:25).
Be assured of your place in heaven today.
Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!
Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.
Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!
Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
