Facts About Heaven You May Not Know

The Bible describes heaven as God’s dwelling place, the sky and stars above, and the abode of eternal bliss. This beautiful description of heaven is exciting. We want to know more! However, when we search the Scriptures we often leave with more questions than answers. Do you have questions about heaven?

I pray you find answers amongst these five facts about heaven that will surprise you.

  1. We won’t miss our old lives

Moving from earth to heaven will be an upgrade of epic proportions. In Romans 8:18, Saint Paul proclaims, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Paul suffered tremendously yet claimed his suffering was not even worth comparing to the beauty of heaven. Amazing!

  1. We won’t become angels

Angels are created beings, distinct from humans. 2 Corinthians 5:8 claims that to be away from our earthly bodies is to be at home with the Lord. We will not turn into angels but we will live with them.

  1. We will still experience emotions

Our sadness may disappear but our capacities for love and joy will not. We will experience God in his fullest, which sounds like a very emotional experience!

  1. We won’t know everything

God alone is all knowing. When we die, we will see things more clearly. We will learn and grow, but we will never know everything. We will be without sin, but ignorance is not necessarily sinful (thankfully). 1 Peter 1:12 shows even the angels do not know everything!

  1. We will recognize on another

The Bible gives no indication that we will lose our memory upon entering heaven. In fact, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 makes little sense if we do not recognize our loved ones in the afterlife.
