What’s It Really Like In Heaven?

 

It is one of the oldest unanswered questions in the history of mankind:

What’s the physical journey like to get there, and what awaits us when we arrive?

Near-death experiences (NDEs) are reported by an estimated 200,000 Americans a year, and studies around the world suggest NDEs are a common human experience. Forgetting the science, how “human” is the “experience” and what does it feel like to be Returning Home?

It’s a question that fascinates me.

And what is even more fascinating, is the possibility predicted in the Bible, that a very large number of us might make the trip together.

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF IT THIS WAY?

Quoting Revelation in the Bible:

“And he carried me away in the spirit, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God … There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west. … the city of pure gold … The 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 in length, and as wide and high as it is long.” — (Revelation 21:10, 13, 16 & 18).

According to the Bible, the New Jerusalem is 12,000 stadia long, tall, and wide.

1 stadia is (515.091864 feet) x 12,000 then divide it by 5,280 feet in a mile. That is 1170.6633 miles, or roughly the distance between Phoenix, Arizona and Houston, Texas.  By car, according to Google directions, that is a 16-hour, 19-minute drive via I-10 E.

So is it possible that the New Jerusalem is a cube, 1,200 miles per side, and that the Apostle John saw it coming to Earth 2,000 years ago?

One more amazing statistic: If a building in the city is this high and has a generous 12 feet per story, the building would be over 600,000 stories!
