Popular American Evangelist, Billy Graham, has taken it upon himself to reassure America that heaven is indeed real and that the glory it contains is much more radiant than anything out there in the universe.
“THE BIBLE ASSURES US THAT HEAVEN IS REAL AND THAT IT INCLUDES THINGS WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE AND TOUCH AND EVEN HEAR, THERE’S NO REASON TO BELIEVE OUR TELESCOPES WILL EVER DISCOVER IT. IT MAY EVEN EXIST IN A DIMENSION BEYOND OUR PRESENT KNOWLEDGE.”
Upon the many ‘new worlds’ that scientists have discovered throughout the years, Graham says that he has no doubt that heaven puts them to shame in terms of beauty and wonder.
“EVERY DESCRIPTION THE BIBLE GIVES US MAKES IT CLEAR THAT HEAVEN IS FILLED WITH WONDERS AND TREASURES FAR GREATER THAN ANYTHING WE KNOW ON EARTH. EVEN THE MOST SKILLED ARTIST OR MOST BRILLIANT COMPOSER IS UNABLE TO PORTRAY ITS GLORIES,”
What gives heaven such a glorious radiance is that it is the home of God and the Lord Jesus Christ. That in itself makes it something that is beyond anything that anyone can achieve.
“NO DOUBT WE’LL BE STUNNED BY HEAVEN’S BEAUTY, BUT MOST OF ALL WE WILL BE OVERWHELMED BY BEING IN GOD’S PRESENCE,”
The Bible verse of Revelation 21:11 describes heaven in such perfect detail: “It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel.”
