The Account of Heaven, by Lee Martone

The Account OF Heaven
Heaven
is the kingdom of God, the dwelling of Jesus Christ, and the future
home for us Christians. Jesus said in John 14:2-3 {In my Fatherís house
are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going
there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for
you I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be
where I am. The Bible says that Jesus will be the lamp that will give
light to the Holy city, because there will be no more sun and no more
moon. Found in Revelation 12:23. The kingdom of Heaven is the
ultimate walled village. There are twelve foundations and on them were
the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. Revelation 21:14. And in
Revelation 21:17 says that the walls of Heaven is 216 feet thick. Then
in verse 18 -23 says { The foundations of the city walls were decorated
with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper,
the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the
fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth
beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth,
and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each
gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure
gold, like transparent glass. I did not see a temple in the city,
because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city
does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God
gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. This is why it says in
Revelation 21:11 {It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance
was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as
crystal. }In Revelation 21:16 says { The city was laid out like a
square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and
found it to be 1í400 miles long and high. Revelations 21:2 says {I saw
the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. This statement
is said because the entire wall is made of all sorts of precious
stones. It glitters and shimmers and shines and catches the light of
the glory of the Lord. The Lordís glory that shines out from his
presence is caught by the 1í400 mile long wall of precious stones and
bounces off it like light off a mirror. It is quite a sight to behold.
And each gate is made of a single pearl. A guardian angel stands at the
entrance of each of the twelve gates. You are simply overwhelmed by the
beauty of the glittering wall as far as the eye can see and the
majestic beauty of the gates of pearl. And you are not even inside yet.
It makes you want to yell at the top of your lungs with great joy My redeemer lives!
Each of the twelve gates are one mile and a half long. This is found in
Ezekiel 42:15-20. And in Ezekiel 48:30-34 the names of the twelve
tribes of Israel are found above each of the twelve gates. On the North
side is Reuben-Judah-Levi on the East side, Joseph-Benjamin-Dan, on the
South side, Simeon-Issachar-Zebulun, and on the West side,
Gad-Asher-Naphtali. And the names above the gates give off light, each
with the color representing that particular tribe. Just as the breast
plate of the high priest had all different color stones on it,
representing each of the twelve tribes. Simeon-Jacihth,
Issachar-amethyst, Zebulun-chrysolite, Gad-belyl, Asher-turquoise,
Naphtali-sapphire, Reuben-topaz, Judah-Ruby, Levi-agate, Joseph-onyx,
Benjamin-jasper, Dan-emerald, Revelation- 22:1 Then the angel showed
me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from
the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street
of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing
twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves
of the tree are for the healing of the nations. The river that flows
from the throne of God is as clear as crystal, when you look at it, it
looks like liquid crystal, the river glitters with all different kinds
of colors, it takes your breath away. When you drink this water, the
life giving nutrients of it is like a four course meal. it taste so
sweet and clean, it is life, because it continually flows straight
from the throne of God. So it stands to reason that the trees watered
by this river of life from God ,will give the best fruit imaginable.
This Place is so glittery and bright and it sparkles with such color.
God really has good taste. And this is just the paradise section of
heaven you are not inside the city yet. The colors in heaven are much,
much more colorful than on earth. The different colors of all the
trees. The different color grasses, and mountains and valleys. And the
fragrance of the Lord is everywhere. Is smells so wonderful everywhere
you go. The Bible says that God will make us smell like him we will
smell like the fragrance of life, 2 Corinthians 2:16. And the smell of
all the flowers, fields of flowers of all different kinds of colors and
shapes. The flowers on earth canít hold a candle to the flowers in
Heaven. This is enough to make you overwhelmed with joy, but you also
have all the company you will ever need, you are surrounded by all of
your loved ones, and you have all the Holy angels of God there,
billions of them. And billions of saints. The presence of God is
stronger here in heaven than on the earth. The sound of Heaven, it
emanates from every were. The Angels and the saints all singing
together songs of praise and worship to God. It is so loud, deafening
in fact, but donít worry when you are in heaven you will have a new
body new ears so you can withstand the sound of Praise. Out side the
city a hundred songs are being sung to God and they all make sense
when they are being sung together in Heaven. If you would play one or
two songs together here on earth it would make no sense, but in heaven
it makes perfect sense. Inside the city a thousand praise songs are
being sung and you are enveloped by them, you become part of the music.
You see that Heaven is the extreme apposite of hell and hell is the
exact apposite of Heaven, just as in hell there are emotions of
tremendous fear and terror that grasp you and torment you beyond
anything you could imagine, the apposite is true in Heaven. There are
feelings of happiness that are beyond anything you ever could imagine.
You are overwhelmed by emotions of great joy that are beyond
imagination. You feel Godís love and peace all around you like a
blanket. This presence is everywhere in Heaven, and it is continual, it
never ends, God bathes you in his love forever. You are beyond ecstasy.
When you get to the city section of Heaven, There is another wall, not
as big as the first wall, and as you look into itís gate you see the
Holy city, with itís streets of purest gold. And golden mansions that
flow with the water of life. There are beautiful valleys full of every
color, so vivid and sharp, and there are colors in Heaven that are not
here on the earth, beautiful magnificent flowers, that take your breath
away. They shine and catch the light of the glory of the Lord that
bounce off and create a majestic scene to behold. When you walk through
this gate it is as if you were in a dark room, compared with where you
just were. Just when you think it could not get any better or more
beautiful or more colorful or brighter, it does! As it is written, in 1
Corinthians 2:9 eye has not seen, nor ear heard, no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him. As you begin to walk
down the golden streets of heaven you come closer to the throne of God.
God is the source of all life, so as you walk closer to where God is,
you become more and more alive with every step you take. You are
deliriously happy. You feel like you have need of nothing and that you
are safe and complete and made whole in the presence of God. Upon
approaching the throne room you notice that it is immense, very large
and very bright with the light from the Glory of God. It is all
different colors, And a rainbow resembling an emerald encircled the
throne. And before the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass
as clear as crystal. The throne itself was made of sapphire and it was
surrounded by a Holy fire. And the one who was sitting on the throne is
also like fire from the waist down and his clothes was as bright as
lighting and his face shown like the sun in all itís radiance. He had
eyes aflame with fire. And he spoke with the voice of many waters. The
Glory of his presence is overwhelming. Heaven and earth and everything
in all creation bowed before him, because he is the king of all
creation, the God of all the universe. The Lord of Heaven and earth and
everything that ever was. The greatest thing in Heaven is God Almighty
and the Lamb of God Jesus Christ, the faithful one. The everlasting
king of all eternity. Everything in Heaven is almost transparent. Like
the transparent streets of Gold, the sea of glass as clear as crystal,
the throne of God made of sapphire. That is a picture of God, that God
is so pure and holy, that he does not have anything to hide, and that
everything in Heaven is so pure and clear, without impurity. Revelation
21:27 says { nothing impure will ever enter it, neither anyone who does
what is shameful of deceitful, but only those whoís names are written
in the Lambs book of life. Hebrews 12:14 says {without holiness no one
will see the Lord.} Unfortunately many people miss this concept of
truth. there are lots of people who know the scriptures, and think that
they can fool God, and say that they love him with their mouth while in
their hearts itís quite another story. They provide a lip service of
praise and honor, but their hearts are vacant of God, they do not have
the love of God in their hearts, and they certainly will not make it to
Heaven. God sees the heart and he knows his own, he knows those who
love him, they are those who obey his commandments. {John 14:15} The
earth is under the curse of Adam, because Adam disobeyed God. Anyone
who disobeys God, and not repent before itís too late will miss out on
Heaven, and will go away to eternal punishment. Namely Hell., But it is
Godís wish that no one perish. So we wait, and wait, and wait for his
coming. The Bible says that the Lordís patience means salvation. I know
that I and my whole family are going to heaven and it is such a
blessing to know that, but there are many people who do not know. If
anyone has a longing for God ,{THE LORD JESUS CHRIST} in their hearts
that means that they are saved. Iím not talking about lip service. Iím
talking about a genuine undeniable love for him in their hearts. I say
this because there are so called Christians out there who say they are
Christians even though they are not. A true Christian is a rare find.
Jesus says in the book of Matthew 7:13-14 for wide is the gate and
broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
but small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only
a few find it. And again in Matthew 7:21 he says Not everyone who says
to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who
does the will of my Father who is in Heaven. I personally donít
understand why anyone would reject the Love of God, which is Jesus
Christ, unless they have a demon. 1 Peter 2:3 now that you have
tasted that the Lord is good, you will grow up in your salvation. The
apostle Peter knew that those who were touched by the Lord and have
therefore tasted his goodness will get hooked on him like a drug. Once
you have tasted of the Holy Spirit, you canít get enough. The Spirit is
what makes you chase after him daily, and it makes you want to be like
him, {Holy} because you know that will please him. The Bible says that
Without Holiness no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14 if you are not
saved and have not accepted Jesus Christ into your heart today Please
do so. The Bible says now is the time for salvation. Donít miss out on
Heaven and miss out on being with Jesus, and the angels and all the
saints. The Bible says that Hell was not meant for you, it was created
for the devil and his angels. But the Bible also says that the ones who
do not accept Jesus in to their hearts will go there. The only thing
you have to loose is your sinful ways that cause you to get sick and
that causes physical deceases in your body. The Lord wants you well and
saved, without sin, and with him, in heaven. All you have to do to
become his is say this short prayer and mean it with all you heart.{
Dear Lord Jesus I know that I am a sinner, and I need your salvation.
Please forgive me of all my sin, wash me as white as snow by your
precious blood. I invite you now to come into my heart and be Lord of
my life. Please save my soul from the fires of Hell. Take me as your
own. Give me a fire on the inside of my heart for you, to serve you
with daily devotion. Thank you Lord for saving me.} If you said this
prayer and meant it with all your heart then congratulations you are
now a member of the most exciting club in all of creation, {Heaven}.
please let me know if you have made this wonderful decision to become a
Christian. Itís exciting when someone gets saved. Never look back,
always push forward to what is ahead. The old you has past away and a
new creature in Christ is born. Old things has past away, all things
have become new. Come soon Lord JESUS. Lee Martone
