From the Flyer
What we think of heaven determines how we live today. I can tell you from my own personal experience and from my years of pastoral ministry and Bible teaching, when you study the biblical doctrine of heaven it will stir your heart and change your thoughts. The truth of heaven not only provides anticipation regarding our future; it also comforts us on behalf of those who have gone before us. Heaven is already a heavily populated land, filled with glorious residents. When we arrive there, we’ll receive a grand welcome.
What Happens When We Die?
Where do we go? Is there an afterlife? Does the Bible say anything specific about heaven? Are there really streets of gold there? Pearly gates? Has anyone been to heaven and returned with inside information? The heroes of Scripture thought constantly about heaven and confessed they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth, seeking a homeland, desiring a better country – a heavenly one – and looking forward to the city with foundations whose builder and maker is God. We should do the same. Heaven is the most encouraging subject in the Bible and the happiest location in the universe. You should know all about it. After years of studying the subject of heaven, I’m overwhelmed by the comprehensive nature of the facts God shares with us in His Word. He wants us to study heaven, visualize heaven, and look forward to the place He is preparing for us. That’s why I’ve compiled these biblical truths into one comprehensive book packed with verses, references, and insights from Scripture. I hope they will encourage you to pursue your own Bible study about heaven and begin thinking often about the glorious future God has planned fro you.
