What is heaven like? Are there really mansions? Will I stay ten forever?
Want more answers?
In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also (John 14:2–3).
Matthew 6:9; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:16–27; 1 Corinthians 15:51–52
My dad used to tell me that heaven is where God is and sin is not. In heaven we will see God’s glory and worship Him with the angels and heavenly creatures. The Bible refers to mansions in our Father’s house. Will there really be mansions? It could be. But whatever Jesus is referring to here, we know that it will be something amazing that our minds can’t even imagine. But the most important thing is that Jesus will be there. We know it will be an awesome, beautiful place and really BIG! Unlike anything we have ever seen before! And what about your age? What kind of body will you have? That is not made clear. Let me tell you what the Bible DOES say. The apostle Paul describes the body as a tent. Something that will be destroyed when we die (when our souls go to be with the Lord.) And the Bible tells us that one day we will have new physical bodies that will be different from the bodies we have now. What will the changes be? We don’t know for sure. I truly believe it will be something like Jesus’ resurrection body!
