For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Corinthians 5:1.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

The sanctified life is a life of blessed assurance. When you know what I have done for you in Christ, who you are in Christ, and all the things I have freely given you, you know where you came from and where you are going.

So the Pharisees said to Him, “You are testifying about Yourself; Your testimony is not true.” Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I testify about Myself, My testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going.” John 8:13-14.

There is no room for fear or doubt in a heart established in My righteousness and fueled with My love.

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32.

You know that you can live with all My promises to you as “yes” and start eternal life now, for eternal life is in My Son, but do you ever think about that I am preparing a home for you in Heaven?  My Son told you this.  He told you to have faith in Me and Him as the One I sent and to know that He is preparing a place for you, a mansion, in Heaven.  And when it is prepared, that is, when your assignment on earth is complete, He will come back to take you with Him to your home. John 14:1-3. Do not be troubled about what happens after your earthly death, which for a believer in My Son I call “falling asleep” and awakening in My presence forever. Absent from your earthly body you will be present with Me in a Kingdom beyond all you can ask or imagine. There is fullness of joy in My presence and delights at My right hand (for you are seated there with My Son, Revelation 3:21) forever.

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in Me. In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you; for I am going away to prepare a place for you. And when I go and make ready a place for you, I will come back again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also.  John 14:1-3.

The word translated “dwelling places” is the Greek word “moné (μονή),” which means an abiding place, an individual dwelling, that is not transitory but permanent. It is from the word “meno,” which means to remain or abide. This word is only used twice in the New Testament and both times by Jesus. And both times He used it were at the Passover Seder meal the night He was betrayed to assure you of the permanence of your abode with Me forever.

The second time He used it that night was when He stated:

Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode (moné) with him.” John 14:23.

Yes, you have a home with Me, not apart from Me, now and forever. When you come to Me in the Kingdom with Jesus, you have it all prepared for you, and when I encompass you now with My Son as you keep My Word you have it. And no one can steal it or harm it.

You have treasure in Heaven that moth and rust cannot corrode and thieves cannot break in and steal.  Matthew 6:20. It is yours and is just as unique as you are, for I never made or will make anyone exactly like you in spirit, soul, or body. No one else has your DNA, the same color iris of the eye, the same voice print, or the same finger prints. No one else has your personality or the same way to fellowship with Me in the spirit that you do. No one else has the exact same assignments in life as you do. I planned you and made you specifically to be you. I am your reason to be and your eternity. You are here because I wanted you to be. I planned you, made you, and sustain you. Forever. I am the source of your life, breath, and being. My delight is to be with you and have you with Me. And that is unending fellowship and partnership.

I tell you many things about what awaits you in the Kingdom of Heaven in My Word.  Reading both the Old and New Testaments, you will see that Heaven is much closer and much more in contact with earth than most people think.  The Israelites heard My voice from Heaven on Mt. Sinai.  Exodus 20:22.  I opened the glory of Heaven to the shepherds in the fields of Bethlehem the night My Son was born.  Luke 2:9-14. When My Son was baptized in the Jordan I opened Heaven and spoke over Him.  Mark 1:11.  Stephen looked right into Heaven as he was being stoned while on earth.  Acts 7:55.

What do you know from My Word about My Heavenly Kingdom?

In Heaven there is no pain, sorrow, crying, or death.  Revelation 21:4.  I wipe every tear from your eyes and there is pure joy there.  You share My joy and in My presence there is fullness of joy. It is a lovely place with a perfect environment and the trees bear fruit and bloom all the time.  And you can eat from the tree of life and its leaves are healing for the nations. Revelation 2:7; Revelation 22:2.

In Heaven there is no darkness, all is light.  There is no night, only perfect, uninterrupted day.  Revelation 21:23-26.  There is no curse there, so there is no poverty, sickness, disasters, or any evil.  Revelation 22:3.

My Word also tells you that you shall live like the angels in Heaven.  That in the Kingdom of Heaven, I dwell with you and you dwell with Me.  That all in Heaven are My people and I will be among you and you shall see My face.

You will drink from the spring of the water of life without cost.  You will eat and drink at My table in My Kingdom, the banquet hall of love, and My banner over you is love.  That is the banner of My Kingdom.  Pure love.  And it is a Kingdom of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

All who overcome inherit these things.  Revelation 21:7.  I shall be your God and you will be My child.  Beautiful and fair indeed is your inheritance.  Psalm 16:6.  Your mansion in the Heavenly city, the city which comes down and joins My Kingdom with the new, renewed, incorruptible earth after the end of this age when I make all things new, is beyond what you can ask or imagine but it will be just what you always wanted but did not dare to believe could be yours.  Revelation 21:1-5. And you will never be alone. I abide with you and you with Me. I am yours and you are Mine, one in love.

And all the kingdoms of the earth shall again be My Kingdom and I will give them all to you where you shall rule and reign with Me forever.  Daniel 7:27; Revelation 11:15; Revelation 22:5.

And in Heaven, all will have a glorified body of a heavenly substance not found on earth on the Last Day.  You cannot now begin to know what that is like.  You will be clothed in immortality, majesty and glory, brilliant and beautiful.  And there is no aging or weakness, no sickness or death.  1 Corinthians 15:42-49.  You will be like My Son, for you shall see Him as He is.  1 John 3:2.  And remember when He rose from the dead? He could walk through locked doors and walls. He would appear and disappear.

And you will travel like Me with the clouds as you chariots and you will walk on the wings of the wind.  Psalm 104:3.

And My Kingdom is a vast and peaceful Kingdom for all generations.  And My throne of justice and mercy is established there forever.  And there is a rainbow around My throne. And the gems of the breastpiece of the High Priest are upon My Son at My right hand. Revelation 4:3.

The Heavenly city has foundation stones of precious gems and the gates are of pearl. And the gates are always open.  And the streets are paved in gold, spun clear as crystal.  Revelation 21:18-26.  And you shall see Me face to face and know Me even as you are known.  Revelation 22:4; 1 Corinthians 13:12.  And there are faith, hope and love in abundance there.  1 Corinthians 13:13.

You will sit on My Son’s throne with Him and He is seated with Me, so you will actually sit with Me on My throne. Revelation 3:21. I like My children close to Me. I embrace you with My everlasting arms.  My left hand under your head and My right arm embracing you.  All comfort and love will be yours.  You will be loved like you never thought possible. And you will feel that love surrounding you and filling you with life at every moment.

And My Glory lights Heaven.  It is a wonderful light that never dims but fills you with joy. The light that shines on you of My love you can feel through your entire being, like the sun on your back on a cold day. You live in the light of My love.

And you receive the hidden manna and a white stone with your own special Name on it, the Name I have called you since before the foundation of the world– the Name that only you and I will know and share in our intimate conversations. In the hidden manna, which has been there for you from everlasting, is all you need and desire forever.

And there are special rewards for each of you.  Yes, rewards are waiting for you in Heaven according to the life you have lived on earth.  What you do now determines your eternity and your degree of glory therein.  Make sure that you are storing up heavenly treasure and not only earthly, for those in Heaven differ in glory like the stars differ in brightness.  Some are brighter than others.  This is all determined by what you do on earth.

Careful with your time on earth, it is brief, but it carries great reward if lived according to My Word. Do not lose your reward, I so long to give it to you. Come share My joy!

And I offer crowns to those who undertake certain assignments for My Kingdom, ministering to My people.  I offer a crown to those who long for My coming.  And all who have been faithful to Me on earth receive the crown of life.  Revelation 2:10.

I give those who have been fruitful and faithful in the affairs of life on earth charge of cities in Heaven.  The responsibilities you have in the Heavenly Kingdom will differ.  But all will be fulfilled and could not hold more joy than they will have. You will be more than satisfied.  It is joy unspeakable forever.

That is Me. And you are in My image.

Everything that people fight so hard to have and keep on earth fades in comparison to what is yours in the age to come.  Do not lose so great a treasure over the fleeting pleasures of sin in the present age. Your time on earth is only a test to see if you will choose life and not death, love and not hate, light and not darkness, for if you are faithful in little things I can trust you with greater things.

And life in Heaven with Me never ends.  It is forever.  We have all eternity to enjoy each other and to undertake amazing projects.  You will have much to do in Heaven and on the earth, and indeed throughout the vast universe, when all is joined as one under My jurisdiction and all evil is locked away in its own abode, segregated and never again released.  Then all will be pure joy with no sorrow to it.  There will be no more terror, no more strife, and no more fear.  There is no lack, only abundance.  Infinity of blessing and goodness.

There, you will enter true rest.  Oh, you will be busy, but you will flow and glow as you grow in wisdom, knowledge, and power. You will come to know how to operate as I do as you rest in Me and My power and My life fills you to the utmost that you can hold.

Heaven is full of revelation.  You rise from glory to glory and never come to the end.

At last you will know who you are and there will be nothing hindering your vision.  All will be open before your eyes.  And there is nothing but beauty in all My vast domain.

And in Heaven you will sing new songs.  In fact, even the flowers sing and the stones cry out with joy.  And the lion lies down with the lamb.  There is no violence on My Holy Mountain.  And you will be there.  This is not a dream, but a reality.

Enjoy your present life that I give you, but keep your heart fixed on My Kingdom until I come back to take you to the lovely dwelling I have prepared for you.  I am preparing it now and filling it with good things for you to enjoy.  Help Me by storing up heavenly treasure each day by keeping My Word in all you think, say and do.

I love you with an everlasting love that has no limits and no end. You can rely on Me.  I am coming soon.  Do not be blind to the signs of the times.  I am knocking at your door.  Open so I can come in and dine with you and you with Me.  Revelation 3:20.  Just open your heart to Me and let Me love you. That will make all the difference.
