Citizens of Heaven

Heaven will be completely different from anything we know, except for the love and mercy of God. We are so blinded by this world around us that we can easily become distracted and confused. If someone from our time met someone from the time of the Patriarchs in heaven do you think we will be able to communicate and understand each other? It would be unlikely in the natural, even if there was no language barrier. Joesph would not understand modern travel, communications, vocations, much less present day customs, leisure, or concerns. We would know nothing of the typical life in 2000 BC or the first century, even if the language and regional differences were bridged.

However, in Heaven there will be nothing of this world, that is why there will be a new heaven and new earth. (2 Pet. 3: 11-13) The things of this world that we are so enamored with will be forgotten. Only the eternal will remain, faith, hope, love, justice, mercy, compassion and whatever comes from God or returns to Him. I believe every citizen of heaven will have much in common and complete understanding because of Yeshua. “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.” (Colossians 1:16-18). About Yeshua, John says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” (John 1:1-4)

When we contemplate the Lord activating the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16) we are set free from the notions, mirages, figments, and fantasies that fill our temporal imagination. The substance of meaning, purpose and eternal reality is found in Yeshua. What a glorious unity and fulfillment will be among the citizens of Heaven.
