Dr. Joel R. Beeke on Heaven

Standard

In light of Christ resurrection, Dr. Joel R. Beeke writes about heaven:

Heaven will be a place of perfect worship of God, perfect service to God, perfect reigning with Christ, perfect fellowship with saints, perfect education about God and His truth, and perfect rest. It will be a place of gracious reward for faithfulness on earth and abundant compensation for suffering on earth. Heaven will be a place of perfect holiness—an eternal Holy of Holies and a sin-free land. As Rowland Hill says, “If an unholy man were to get to heaven, he would feel like a hog in a flower garden.” Heaven will be pure and clean. There will be no infirmity there and not one speck of dust. All evil will be walled out; all good walled in.
