  • According to the hymns we sang in church there will be streets paved with gold and mansions for all. I like that idea.
  • Revelation 21: 15-21 15The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls. 16The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia[a]in length, and as wide and high as it is long. 17He measured its wall and it was 144 cubits[b] thick,[c] by man's measurement, which the angel was using. 18The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.[d] 21The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.
  • A huge garden, will pure water, gold structures etc..
  • I went to a Catholic retreat, Blessed Trinity Retreat Center, Ft. Mitchel, Al. this last weekend (2,3,4 Feb. 07.) It was a slice of Heaven to me. It is on more than a hundred acres of land, with many trails, a creek, a river, even a babbling brook. Trees of all sorts, deer, squirrels, wild boar, with many, many birds. The weather was perfect. Meals were cooked for us, there was no cleaning after the meals, there was hot coffee constantly, plus hot water for a wide variety of different teas. No TV, radio, computer, it was just God and me, what a combo!!!! Don't get me wrong-I am addicted to the TV and computer, but it was great. It was also a solitude retreat, so even though there were seventeen in our group, we only spoke when we had a short get together once a day. Hopefully we can speak in Heaven! For this weekend the quiet, except mother nature, was a great way to quiet ones self to hear God's voice. Hope this helps. God Bless, <:))))<><
  • However you view it to be
  • I've heard it said that it is impossible to extract all of the impurities out of gold but the more your able to do so the lighter and more colorless it becomes.So gold in its purest state might be transparent.
  • When my son had his stoke he actually stopped breathing for a bit. My son who was at that time 6 said he saw Jesus, the big gate and the prettiest lights he had even seen. Not just white but many colors. he said you will get your new body but he had to come back. Since that time he loves people and absolutely loves Jesus. He tells us he cannot wait for us to die, because heaven is the prettiest place he ever seen.
  • To everyone that read this I hope your heart will find peace and joy. God the Father and our lord an Saviours Jesus Christ. Before you can get to heaven, you must first REPENT of you Sins, and turn for the evil ways of the world, Cause the Wages of Sins is DEATH (Death and Hell will be cast Into the LAKE OF FIRE) But the Gifts of God is Eternal Life throught his Son Jesus Christ, We must Be baptized In Jesus Christ Name for the Remission of SINS. Heaven is a beautiful place our Minds can only picture how it look, but a world with out END. That the most important. Turn to God and turn for the evil ways of the world. May God bless you and keep you and the Lord JESUS CHRIST.
  • A big church with billions of people bowing down to a big bearded dude with anger issues.
  • The reason that I am looking at this site is because I have a website called http://asplashofheaven.com/default.aspx which is about gardening & related topics. However I started to ask myself what Heaven looks like as I was considering extending the scope of topics covered in my website rather than just gardening. So is Heaven about a garden or a city or both? As I understand it Jesus referred to the Kingdom of Heaven, which in my mind sounds more like a country than just one city but then again I think the parables Jesus used to describe the Kingdom of Heaven are more about acts of kindness & innovation relating to faith. Maybe Jesus was describing a place that was possible if people behaved as they ought to rather than as they do i.e. lying, cheating etc. or thinking that the way to behave in a decent society was just following rules & regulations and castigating those who trip up. Still not sure what to do about my website though.
  • Its full of only Christians, who sit on thier high horse mocking all who are brain washed .. I mean believers, well every other religan is below burnning in hell.
  • Its amazing to me all of the people who answer these quetions just to be mean and hateful. Christians are constantly being harassed and criticized for being judgmental and hypocritical, but we all have those tendencies. Just read that CHAPPY guys comment AND YOU will see the proof. He must be of a different religion, one that doesnt point fingers or gossip! You go Chappy!
  • Infused with a white glowing light that lives and breathes and through it we have our breath. Perfection. No sorrow, no tears. No pain. Fear is gone. Only the warmth of golden Love. Like a baby in it's Mother's arms wants for nothing, so then is the eternal peace of God's Holy sanctuary. And there is a River which flows through it, of living crystal waters.
  • White - Hell is black with a lot of flames.
  • My visual of Heaven was exactly like the movie What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams init.
  • god's heaven to me seem's so impossible to reach. I've heard so many stories about how wonderful it sounds and looks. I have done s much wrong in my life and i dont think i could make it. I so scared to go to heaven or rather die because i dont know what's out there beyond the body. i just want the chance to see my granny again. I was only wit her for 6 years. I want to be able to make it to see streets of gold and big mansons and see all of my family and to see jesus the man who made it all possible. i just wish there was a way that i could communicate with her to see how she's doin. I know i have my moments to were i can be a pain. I admit i have sined greatly and i know jesus is not pleased with my life choises that i've made so far. Even though i have said bad things about him, doubted him, and what ever else, he has still allowed me another day to live. I wanted to make all the right moves to get me to his kingdom so that i can live forever and never worry about dying. Sometimes i cry because i think of not making it there. I used to listen to everybody else and what i noticed is that everybody else cant get me to heaven only i can so from now im am going to try harder to succed in my journey beyond the heavenly sky.
  • Some people may see heaven as a figment of christians imaginations, but I know with out a doubt that it is real. Realer than any other thing on earth. You know the prayer: "Let thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven" We have seen glimpses of heaven hear on earth. Like when people receive things from others who didn't diserve it. Or when you have so much joy you can't contain it. Or when the sun shines bright and makes your day. Heaven is a place with a big garden and there are purple flowers and red flowers and white flowers and green flowers and blue flowers and all kinds of flowers. There are great big walls and lots of angels. When people sing, there are colors coming out of there mouths but no sound. If you ask for a pie, He will say what kind, you can fly and you can swim in clear, breathable water. He has many rooms. Rooms of all instruments, rooms of body parts for those on earth that need them. He has a nursery for those who died too young. Heaven is a place where you will never be bord.
  • The problem with this and every other thing in that cult is that heaven is a concept which is up for interpretation and each and every so called Christian has a different idea that fits their own delusion. Based on what I've heard most commonly described, it sounds like a giant toilet paper factory up in the sky
  • All white and shit...and shiny.
  • Ok, I've just gone thru all these answers and here's a summary of what I've seen: Streets of gold, mansions, a river living, a pic of flowers, a movie, some dude who went to camp, some person who's happy that their 6-year old kid is wishing his parents dead, bright lights (but it's unknown whether they're incandescent or fluorescent), a guy talking about gardening products, another guy who wants to go beyong his heavenly destination (a NASA astronaut perhaps?) and a shitload of cut and paste bible scripture In addition to some contributions from Atheists who think the place is like a mega church, a toilet paper factory, has white flames and Santa Claus in it and doesn't exist Now, if I were looking for a reason to believe in a deity, how the hell could I ever make any sense of any of that? But still, believers can't understand why we laugh at these things... ~Rinky is shaking his head from side to side~
  • There is beauty up above. According: to Christianity, Heaven is a paradise - a beautiful garden of peace & tranquillity.
  • Read the book "Heaven" by Randy Alcorn. http://www.amazon.com/.../ref=pd_bbs_sr_1 "One thing's for sure; Earth can't keep it's promises, but aren't you glad Heaven does? And oh the joy of one day enjoying not only new glorified bodies but hearts free of sin! Randy does an AWESOME job of answering people's toughest questions about what lies on the other side of death. Heaven provides a clear and very readable guide to grasping all that the Savior has in store for those who trust in him." ~Joni Eareckson Tada, quadrapalegic and founder and CEO of Joni and Friends "This is the best book on Heaven I've ever read." Rick Warren, pastor and author of the Purpose Driven Life "I just turned the last page of Randy Alcorn's Heaven..and I feel so full. My heart brims with excitement about my future home and with love for the creative God who designed it for me. My mind has been delighted to consider scripture truths I've previously glossed over. My spirit yearns to walk in God's company. We all need to know what awaits us beyond the grave. Drawing from God's Word, Randy Alcorn has explained and carefully illustrated these plans in an easy-to-follow format. Do not miss this book. "Heaven" will change your life, your perspective, and perhaps even your eternal destiny." ~Angela Hung, author of The Debt
  • Heaven streets are made of gold, everyone is going to have a mansion, the angles voices are like nothing you have ever heard. Just imagine the most beautiful voice you have ever heard singing, the angels voices are 1000 times more beautiful than that. Just imagine the most beautiful site you have ever seen, the things in heaven are so beautiful and wonderful you can't even imagine them because they are unimagineable. God, that is truly something. Everything is perfect in heaven no sickness, death, pain, despair. The family reunion is going to be the biggest and the greatest of all. The food is going to be extra good, it is going to taste the way it is really suppose to taste. Heaven is truly a wonderful place and you would have to be crazy to choose the alternative. It takes work to get to heaven, it's not hard and the wages and benefits are excellent. I hope to see you there, because I am going to do all I can to make sure I secure my rightful place in heaven.
  • I know that there are many who don't believe but all I have to say is don't get caught slipping. For your sake, give your life to Christ before it is too late. He is coming back like a thief in the night, TIME IS GOING TO BE UP.
  • No heaven, never was never will be.
  • Anyone who answers is either prophetic or a liar (or really divine). As far as I know, heaven cannot be seen - only experienced.
  • According to the bible, everyone will become a pillar.
  • We do not really know. • Heaven • Heaven is eternal life with God; communion of life and love with the Trinity and all the blessed. Heaven is the state of supreme and definitive happiness, the goal of the deepest longings of humanity. • Hell • Hell is the state of complete and final self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed, reserved for those who refuse by their own free choice to believe and be converted from sin, even to the end of their lives No one really knows what hell is like. It has been described by people who have not been there as everything from flames to a frozen lake (Dante). "You can check out any time you like but you can never leave." -- Hotel California, Songwriters Don Felder, Don Henley, and Glenn Lewis Frey • Heaven vs. Hell • A holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said, "Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like." The Lord led the holy man to two doors. He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in. In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew which smelled delicious and made the holy man's mouth water. The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful, but because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths. The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. The Lord said, "You have seen Hell." They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking. The holy man said, "I don't understand." "It is simple" said the Lord, "it requires but one skill. You see, they have learned to feed each other, while the greedy think only of themselves." For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 1023 through 1029: http://www.nccbuscc.org/catechism/text/pt1sect2chpt3art12.shtml#1023 With love in Christ.

  • In the Holy Bible it says in Revelations... Revelations 21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
  • It is not uncommon for concepts of eternal salvation to be presented in an idiom that is widely comprehensible. Persons can choose to believe those descriptions literally -- the authors may even have believed them literally -- but attempting to subject those concepts to proof against the logic of the material world is just silly. In doing so, one is not challenging the concept of eternal salvation, one is simply challenging an idiom, which is to say a metaphor. For someone to hear the phrase, "He was a speeding bullet running around the track," and then immediately jump in with all of the objections: "He couldn't have been a bullet, he wasn't made out of metal, any bullet going that slow would be worthless, he wasn't catapulted by burning gases," would be obviously ridiculous. Challenging a believer's idiom is equally absurd. Time and space itself cease to exist beyond this continuum. Some physicists argue that, when you get right down to it, time and space don't even really exist. So the concept of "gold" being part of an eternal state within the context of conventional mechanics doesn't work. On the other hand, if someone insists on bringing that IDEA -- the IDEA of being surrounded by gold -- into a different state of reality outside of our present continuum, there is no one who knows enough about that alternate reality to tell him/her that such is not possible. That alternate state will not be defined by the mechanics of this one. So the bottom line is, we may well end up experiencing in a vastly different reality those ideas that we have nurtured in this reality -- those who have nurtured a positive reality experiencing precisely that and those who have nurtured a negative, dishonest reality, experiencing precisely that. A person argues against a particular religious view not because logic commands him/her to do so, but rather because he/she is disposed to have that attitude which is then back-filled by the logic that is offered to support it. There is no justification at all for attacking someone else's religious beliefs and hold them up to ridicule and scorn, regardless what they are. My two cents.
  • WOW I HOPE IT IS REALLY LIKE THAT HOW THEY EXPLAIN IT TO BE EVERYTHING GOLD AND LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER IMAGINE IT
  • First tie yourself to a chair and read 'Revelation', the last Chapter from the Holy Bible. * If you are able to visualise the 'noisy lamb-circus', AT LEAST you will not fall off the chair!
