Heaven As I Imagine It

Heaven is the place we’re all dying to go. As the bride of Christ, His church, we’ll serve our King who will replace the sun and moon as the light of the New Jerusalem... We will continue to be His servants and I cannot imagine what tasks God has planned. I’d like to work with children like I’ve done all my life here. I’ve read of a diet of various fruits and I think our bodies will be altered a lot. One idea is that the New Jerusalem will be a planet in space where we will traverse the inside of a transparent 1500 mile cube enclosed in a sphere. I don’t think gravity will be a problem. A sidenote: The new earth will be heaven’s kingdom. where God’s chosen people, Israel will dwell. King David will rule as vice-regent to Christ. I think there will be space travel between the New Jerusalem and earth. I’ve heard the kings of the earth will come up to worship in the New Jerusalem. There will be no more oceans or seas. There will be continual light. Open gates will need no lock and key. Maybe I'll work at a school on the new earth?? Only God knows what heaven will be Believers will find out someday. No pain, no disease, no sorrow, no jerks, no criminals, no agitators. New undeserved pleasures await our excitement as we finally view our Savior face to face.
