Bible Answers to Questions About Heaven
By Dr. Curtis Hutson
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14:1-3
When I was a small boy I heard the preacher talk about Heaven. He said when the Christian dies he goes up to Heaven. I used to lie on my bed at night, and wonder: Is this Heaven a real place? If Heaven is a real place, where is it? If I were to die as a Christian, would I go to Heaven immediately? If I did, how long would it take me to make the trip? And when I got to Heaven, would I know my friends? Would they know me? What would I look like in Heaven? Would my loved ones know me? Would I know my loved ones? Would I know my grandmother and grandfather who had already gone to Heaven? These and many other questions went through my mind--death and Heaven were mysteries to me.
One of the greatest causes of sorrow, when our loved ones pass away, is a lack of knowledge concerning the dead. The Bible says in 1st Thessalonians 4:13. "I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope." Here is a suggestion that a lack of knowledge is the chief cause of sorrow when we lose our loved ones.
