Is Heaven real?
Heaven is more real than earth. But because it is beyond the comprehension of sinful beings, the Bible only uses symbols to describe it, as in the last chapters of Revelation. Christ has gone there. And he is “this same Jesus” – see Acts 1:11
“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
We too will go there at His return, but not in our present bodies. See 1 Corinthians 15:12 The Resurrection of the Dead “But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?”
Read also Isaiah 66:22 “As the new heavens and the new earth that I make will endure before me,” declares the LORD, “so will your name and descendants endure. Isaiah 66:23 From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all people will come and bow down before me,” says the LORD.
