Two People Who Were Privileged To See Heaven While They Were On Earth.

How I wish there was a technology that can convey you and me to Heaven. You will begin to feel the same way when you realize the beauty and glamor of the place. More so, the description alone will make you feel the

 unaccountable things you are missing.

I’ve read about the streets made of God in the book of Revelation. How can a whole street be made of gold, not to talk of the whole heaven? More so, I’ve read about the gates that lead to heaven made of pearl. I’ve heard of the rivers that flow from the throne of God. If you read the book of Revelation, you will discover the tree — the tree of life — is in the midst of the river.

There is no need for the torches or generators. A part of the prophetic book revealed the light in heaven came from God, himself. What an unimaginable light source! As big as the place is, its source of light is one person. There is no

 night for over there because the light that comes from him can never go off.

I could remember in one of the gospels, Jesus told his disciples about the mansions in heaven. Of course, he is not a man. In other words, he cannot lie. I don’t expect to see a small house over there because the Heavenly beings are giants. Talk of the size of the angels, not to mention the unmeasurable size of the Almighty. I can’t wait for us to get there. Ensure you get there. Remain as holy as you can if you want to get there. Everyone will be robed in white apparel like Jesus, our savior.

As we are waiting to go there, two people on earth were privileged to see it live. What an incredible feat! See it once will ensure you never miss the place.

"And John tried to prevent Him, saying, 'I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?'… 

When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He[c] saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him."

Matthew 3:14-16 Nkjv

John, the Baptist, was the first person who saw heaven. After he had baptized Jesus, he testified that he saw it opened and the spirit of God descended like a Dove. That was as real as you could ever imagine. It was not a movie as it happened — live — to John. 

"But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,

And said, 'Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!'"

Acts 7:55-56 Nkjv. 

The second person was Stephen. Before he was killed, he had been privileged to see the heaven, too. To conform the first person saw the throne of God, he mentioned what he saw: spirit of God. In addition, the second person confirmed what he saw when the place opened. He saw Jesus standing by the right of God. 

This article takes away the myth that heaven is not real. This is not a fantasy as some people claim. See you in heaven.
