Dear God...Do All Dogs go to Heaven?
Heaven is more than what we were taught to believe; it’s more than just a reward, and an accurate view of heaven helps us to live with eternity in mind. Heaven is an actual place (John 14:2-3). The Bible says that we are going to rest well in heaven (Revelation 14:13), as well as have satisfying and fulfilling work (Revelation 22:3). In heaven there are no divisions, no animosity. We will get to worship God as one people (Revelation 7:9-10). We will get to eat and celebrate (Matthew 8:11; Revelation 19:9; Isaiah 25:6). There’s no doubt that heaven is a place of enjoyment. The most overwhelming feeling, though, is that we will finally be at home in heaven (Isaiah 65:17; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1-5; Revelation 22:1-5). Heaven helps us have perspective during the things we’re going through, and perseverance in times of temptation (Hebrews 4:16). It’s being in God’s presence and the goodness it brings.
