“On Earth as it is in Heaven…”
The line in the Lord’s Prayer refers to God’s Will. (Matthew 6:9-13)
“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” God rules heaven and He also is in control of everything on earth.
But what’s heaven like? Does it look like our sky – pretty blue with white puffy clouds and angels strumming harps?
Heaven is peaceful
“Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” (Luke 19:38).
Heaven is indeed a kingdom of peace. And when Jesus taught His disciples how to live in a world characterized by a lack of peace, He taught them to pray that God’s will would be done “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).
There is peace in heaven, and Jesus wants His disciples to have peace on earth until eternal peace is realized in the New Jerusalem. But how? Through prayer. The apostle Paul wrote that when we commit every care and concern to God through prayer, the heavenly peace of God will guard our hearts and minds (Philippians 4:6-7).” (Turning Point David Jeremiah www.turningpointonline.org)
|The Holy Trinity – Jesus, the Son, God, the Father &
The Holy Spirit
The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them. ~ Psalm 11:4
Jesus is in heaven
When he [Jesus] had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. ~Luke 24:50-51
Believers will have glorious bodies like Jesus’
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. ~ Philippians 3:20-21
There will be no pain or sorrow in heaven
“…He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4
God gave the Apostle John a glimpse of heaven
Heaven is an exclusive club open to anyone who wants to come in
And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. ~ Matthew 18:3
“Like little children” means that we need to be pure, sin-free, reborn and the only way to do that is through the acceptance of Jesus Christ as your personal savior.
