Who Will Be There?
- The abode of God (1 Kings 8:30)
- The abode of the angels (Mark 13:32)
- Believers will be there in due course (1 Pet. 1:4).
The New Testament uses striking imagery to bring out the wonder and loveliness of heaven (gates of pearl and a street of gold Rev. 21:21). Heaven means eternal joy in the presence of God.
