God’s Promise of Heaven It is not just enough to believe in God to be a righteous person you must also believe in the promise of God. God promises that those who believe in Him alone, the last day and work righteousness will be blessed to live forever in a beautiful paradise we know as Heaven. The only reason why someone would obey God in this life is that this person wants to be of those who will be blessed in the next life to live forever in Heaven. However, I don’t believe that most people today understand what it is that God is promising His righteous believers or have the correct understanding of Heaven. I have seen many movies, heard many stories, read many books, but I have not seen, heard or read one true story told about Heaven. All that I have seen are pictures of white clouds and people walking around in all white wearing bird’s wings on their backs. This idea of Heaven is not the Heaven that I understand is promised to righteous people by God. I do not doubt that God promises His people that they will be blessed to live forever in a real physical place like earth that will be a paradise. Yes, a physical existence where we will have physical bodies, friends, and mates. A paradise where the righteous will be living in beautiful gardens where rivers will flow beneath their feet. A haven where everything will be made comfortable, enjoyable, and where happiness will be with everyone forever. I believe it is essential that a person has the correct perspective of the Heaven that is promised by God if this person is going to strive to do good deeds and obey God in this life to go there. If a person does not have the correct perspective of Heaven, why should this person want to go there? I don’t believe that anybody is looking forward to going to a Heaven where everyone is walking around as spirits with no physical bodies living in white clouds where they may or may not get their wings one day. Those who don’t believe in God may ask the question if God can give us a life that will last forever after we die why He didn’t give it to us now in this lifetime? Think about it, if God gave us everlasting life here on earth before the free choice is made by all of us to obey Him or not; then look at how long the righteous people would end up living with those who made a choice to disobey God and became evil. Living forever with those who are evil would not be a good life it would eventually just be hell like life is growing to be today on earth. The true believer in God has no problem believing that God can raise the dead and will give them another one that will last forever in Heaven. Because, God had no problem given us this first existence, and He will bless the righteous with the Heaven that He promised them in the next life. This world may sometimes seem unfair to many, but The Day of Judgment will be an event-based entirely on justice, and everyone will receive just what he or she has earned. However, those who will be blessed to go to Heaven will gain much more for God promises to bless them according to the best of their good deeds and to overlook the worst of their evil acts. No matter what you have done wrong in your life for which you may think that God will not forgive you, God promises to forgive you. However, you must turn to God in repentance by obeying His laws and working righteous deeds. If you do this before it is too late, God promises to forgive you of everything in your past and bless you to be of those who will live in everlasting happiness in Heaven. Q40:8 "And grant our Lord! That they enter the Gardens of Eternity which Thou hast promised to them and the righteous among their fathers their wives and their posterity! Thou art (He) the Exalted in Might Full of Wisdom. Q40:9 "And preserve them from (all) ills; and any whom thou dost preserve from ills that Day on them wilt Thou have bestowed Mercy indeed: and that will be truly (for them) the highest Achievement.
