Rev. 21:9-27 A WONDERFUL PLACE CALLED HEAVEN
Intro: I believe the Bible. I believe in taking this book literally. Therefore, I believe in a literal place called Hell. We talked about that place last Sunday. I also believe in a literal place called Heaven. Some people think we are foolish to believe in some city far above the earth, where people are happy, holy and home. I may be foolish for believing that, but I am in good company! Jesus believed it. Paul, John and the rest of the disciples believed it. Countless millions of precious saints have entered death longing to go to that city. You might want to get the net, but I still believe in Heaven.
D.L. Moody said, “The thought of Heaven has cheered the soul of many believers. Some say that we are fools to believe in Heaven. But, to deny Heaven is to deny Jesus, for He came from Heaven, it is to place our departed loved ones in the cold dark grave, it is to deprive millions of Christians of the greatest hope they have. To deny Heaven is equal to murder for it kills hope, to thievery for it robs joy, to slander because it calls God a liar.”
Just as we looked at a horrible place called Hell last week; I want to preach today about A Wonderful Place Called Heaven. Now, I am not so foolish to believe that I can do adequate justice to that place, but I want to give it a noble effort. Let’s consider some aspects of A Wonderful Place Called Heaven.

How about you? When death comes for you, will you be ready to go to Heaven? Have you made your preparations to enter that city? Have you left the wide road and entered the narrow way through Jesus Christ? If you haven’t, you can and you can do it today. If you have, then hang on saints of God, the best is yet to come!
