“Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.”
Heaven must be real when Jesus spoke about it. Jesus lied if heaven does not really existed somewhere. Heaven is a place far beyond the sphere of earth’s galaxy. Jesus revealed where He came from, he was with His Father from the beginning of time but came down from above, clearly from heaven.
Jesus Christ taught His disciples to pray in this manner, “Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Your will be done on earth as in heaven”. There are two distinguished places, the heaven and the earth. Jesus also gave a clue to where heaven is. Occasionally, He looked up in heaven when prayed, so heaven is up therein contrast to where He was. Anywhere we are, whether on the top of the world or at the bottom of the world, heaven is above us considering the universe infinitely surrounds us.
“He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony. He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true. For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.” John 8:31-34
Lately, astronomers are discovering new large “black holes” with numberless light source like that of the sun. They might be peeking the tail of heaven. Those who believe in heaven would not be losers if there is no heaven but for those who do not believe of heaven would lose a great deal if heaven is real.
Our faith is in Jesus Christ not on heaven. Jesus is the word and will of our Father. He is more important to us than heaven itself. He is our life and light in heaven. Even on earth we have the taste of heaven when we live by His words. What profits a man if he gains the whole world and miss heaven now and forever?
Later Jesus said to them again, “I am going away. You will search for me but will die in your sin. You cannot come where I am going.”
The people* asked, “Is he planning to commit suicide? What does he mean, ‘You cannot come where I am going’?”
Jesus continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You belong to this world; I do not. 24 That is why I said that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I Am who I claim to be,* you will die in your sins.” John 8:2-24
