Anticipating Heaven: Heaven and Beyond!
Heaven is a glorious paradise where we dwell in the presence of God, but that is not the final goal in God's plan of redemption. The final goal is a New Heavens and a New Earth where we dwell in glorified resurrected bodies! All human aspirations and dreams are wonderfully fulfilled... it's what we are hard wired for and it is forever!!
2 Corinthians 12:1-4,5:6-8
1 Corinthians 6:2-3
