Billy Graham said “My home is in heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.”
How powerful is that truth?
Billy Graham has said many brilliant things regarding heaven and answered questions about its existence.
As Christians, we often wonder, “What does heaven look like?” and “Will my loved ones recognize me when I get there?” Billy Graham answered 5 questions about Heaven to build our faith.
1. Will I Immediately Go to Heaven?
What happens right after we die? Do we immediately go to heaven? The Bible doesn’t say exactly what happens immediately after we die because our minds are limited and heaven is too glorious to fully grasp. You will, however, be immediately brought into the presence of God if you are a believer.
2. How Can I Be Sure That I’m Going to Heaven?
Colossians 2:13 says “God made you alive with Christ.” If you have accepted Him, you are part of his forever family and will be welcomed into Heaven.
Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price when he died for our sins. He paid the price for our redemption and with that, we are completely forgiven and given a place in Heaven if we are believers. If you trust in Christ, God will bring you into Heaven and give you eternal life.
3. Where Is Heaven?
Heaven is more real than the earth and the stars. We may not be able to see heaven by simply looking to the sky, but it does exist and is far greater than anything we could imagine and exists in a dimension different from anything we know.
We can rest assured knowing that Heaven is the perfect place where “the ox and lions will eat straw side by side.” (Isaiah 65:23)
4. Can People in Heaven See Events on Earth?
One of the often asked questions about Heaven is whether or not those already in Heaven can see what is happening on earth. While the Bible doesn’t say exactly what those in heaven know about what’s happening on earth, the most important thing is that we will always experience complete joy because we are with God.
If we were able to see what is going on on earth, we will not be saddened or burdened by it because we will be able to see the full picture of God’s plans.
5. Does an Angel Take Us to Heaven After We Die?
According to Hebrews 1:14, all angels “ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation.” When believers die, the angels escort them to heaven as part of their duty to do God’s work.
God’s angels are real and while we may not be able to see them or feel them, they are with us to protect us from Satan. If they are always with us on this earth, we can be sure they will be with as us we go to Heaven.
