The question arises now and then, whether we might get bored in Heaven. I've read that there are more suicides in areas where the seasons don't change and there's only warm, beautiful weather to enjoy, so I suppose it's only natural for one to wonder "what will I do for eternity."

Well, to begin with, the Apostle John was given the opportunity to see Heaven in a vision, and he said it was so wonderful that there were no words to describe it. And he said that some was so marvelous that he was told not to tell it.

Think back...to a day you remember, that was so good that you'll never forget it. Or maybe you can remember a whole week that stands out. Any chance that you had a special year? Let's just stick with that one special day, and add another, and another, and another time that was unspeakably good in your life.

That's the way Heaven is going to be, except you won't have to say, "Oh...I wish that would never end." Because in Heaven, it WON'T end. You won't worry about being careful so you won't get sick before some wonderful plan unfolds. No worry about death taking the joy out of life.

And I have a feeling that the things you enjoyed here will only be multiplied and extended for as long as you wish, and until you decide to do something else you enjoy. I even think that my family will be able to go camping, if we wish, and the brook we waded on the way from our tent, up to the place where we got ice cream. Back when I would take my family, we even loved it when a shower would hide the sun. And I took them on vacations to almost all of the states, and there are still hundreds of places I want to see. I rest assured that there will be scenic sights in Heaven that will beat the best we can see in this world. And we won't have to be back in two weeks. Or two years. Or give or take a century.

Who knows...maybe God will have all the sights in this world, all rolled out for us to see at our leisure. And for transportation, it may be that we will only have to think where we want to go, and we'll be there. Like the magic carpet I used to ride as I listened to "Let's Pretend" on the radio. And no one will be too old, and...well, all will be...heavenly.

We won't get bored. There'll be no time for that. Be there!

 

Thorntonism:  Magic carpets in Heaven?  Nah...not needed

I’ve noticed that some of my Conquest articles have taken on a new complexion since my wife went to her new home.  I don’t feel the same about passing from this life to the next.  I like to use the term “The Promise”  that the Lord gives to everyone…that Christians will immediately be with loved ones who’ve gone on, when our turn comes.                               
 
King David used that consolation we see in 2nd Samuel 12:23, after his son by Bathsheba died; “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”  And of course Jesus showed the same comfort to us, as He hung on the Cross, when he told the thief hanging beside Him, who had become a believer there, “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”
 
I’ve written about that in an earlier article, but for those of you who didn’t see it, I’ll give my interpretation of those words by Christ.  “Today” means now…assuring us that we won’t be put in a waiting area until some time in the future.  And “shalt thou be with me” means that He will go to the same place with this person who’s dying at His side.                                                                           
 And the Bible clearly shows that the word “Paradise” and “Heaven” are the same place.  Revelation 2:7 is enough to convince us:  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  To the one who conquers, I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”  And the tree of life serves double duty, also indicating that we’ll eat the best of foods in Heaven. 
 
The only ones who should fear death, are those of you who haven’t given your heart to the Lord.  I beg you to take care of that, at this very moment.  It’s the only time you’re guaranteed.
