Someone asked me recently what is my favorite part about visiting heaven? As I have been privileged to visit the heavenly realm many times throughout my season on earth…there are some distinctive attributes that are only true of heaven.
Instead of writing what is, on this occasion I am writing what I have never encountered in heaven:
Anxiety, arrogance, abandonment, anger, angst, abuse, affliction, anguish, addictions, abominations, bribery, bitterness, brokenness, blindness, betrayal, bigotry, confusion, contempt, criticism, cynicism, confinement, criminal behavior, chains, complaining, cancer, coveting, conniving, curses, chaos, conspiracy, crudeness, condemnation, corruptness, cruelty, counterfeit, demons, darkness, dishonor, dread, disrespect, disregard, disorder, deception, deviant, degrading, detestable, deformities, division, death, decay, discrimination, darkness, defiance, drunkenness, discouragement, deafness, deceit, disease, divorce, depression, defeat, debt, defilement, envy, evil, fear, foul words or spirits, false witness, false religions, foolishness, failure, greed, gossip, grief, hatred, hopelessness, hunger, illness, insecurity, idolatry, injustice, iniquity, jealousy, jesting, limitations, lust, laziness, loneliness, lying, maliciousness, manipulation, murder, mockery, molestation, neglect, oppression, occults, pain, poverty, pollution, prisons, poison, pranks, procrastination, perverseness, putrid, predatory behavior, pride, pretense, rage, rape, ridicule, rebellion, rejection, regret, resentment, rudeness, self-will, self-absorption, seduction, shame, suffering, starvation, slander, slime, sin, strife, unkindness, unrighteousness, unclean, unforgiveness, wickedness and/or anything in a fallen state or unholy. Any moment in heaven…is assuredly the best moments ever spent on earth. Any moment in the Pure Holy Divine Presence of Heaven, the eternal realm of YESHUA, our Messiah King, Most High Priest, Faithful Intercessor, Lamb of God, Risen Savior, Eternal Brother, Holy Lord, Righteous Redeemer is beyond transforming.
