He has created many beautiful things in heaven. I am not thinking that it is about bringing down streets of gold or mansions that we have been told are there. I have listened to a few people who have been to heaven and comeback. They have seen some fantastic things but I don't think any of them are what we are supposed to bring down and establish on earth.
I am thinking I shall have to meditate on who He is and what is in His heart for us on earth.
What else I know about heaven is it is at perfect peace. Heaven is filled with gratitude.
How do I know that? Glad you asked.
I met Arthur Blessed in Hollywood in the late 60's . He was a very pointed fellow. He grabbed my hands and looked me in the eye and asked "Is Jesus your savior and Lord?" He scared me down to my core. I felt something inside me say you can not deny God, even though I had not officially accepted him. So I said yes. I felt a fire in my chest that scared me even more. He said "great let's pray." Now I am totally terrified at my experience and wanting to make haste to get out of there when he finished praying. Which I did. I count that as the day the Lord stuck a hook in my heart but it took Him a few more years to reel me in the boat.
Fast forward 14 years and we move to Phoenix Arizona. I start thinking about how grateful I am for that day long past and how I would like to thank Arthur for his reaching out for the lost. I went about visiting churches to find the one God wanted me to attend. I walked into Phoenix Assembly church one night and the first thing I saw was a table with a paper that said Arthur was speaking there tonight. Excitedly I looked up to find an entrance into the sanctuary. There he was surrounded by a large group of people wanting to talk to him. I walked over hoping to get a moment. Strangest thing happened the mass of people parted like the red sea and I walked right up to him. My heart was pounding experiencing this happening. I spoke sheepishly you probably don't remember me but....... He interrupted and named the bar I danced in at the time. He said I never forget. I finally got out my thank you and we hugged and cried together for a few moments. I felt heaven and was surrounded by love and gratitude. I remember my thought were wow! heaven is filled with gratitude. It seemed everyone there was so grateful to be there.
When we let go we looked around in amazement because everyone was on the floor. He had to go into the green room and I watched the people one by one get up and go down another hallway , looking a bit dazed. I looked for a door to the sanctuary again . I went in and I was at the front of a church that serves 10,000 people. I stood still amazed at what happened and where I was and wondering where on earth was I going to sit. Just then an elderly women walked up to me she said" "Honey the Glory of God is all over you, you have to sit next to me." She led me by the hand and we sat front row center.
That is how i know heaven is full of gratitude.
