Our Relationships in Heaven

"But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep,

that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,

even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.

 

For the Lord, himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,

with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

 

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them

in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air:

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

~ 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14, 16-18

Many people wonder as they turn from the grave of their loved ones,

"Will we know our loved ones in heaven"?

"What will our relationships be like for those in the Lord"?

 

The Lord understands your grief.

He shares in your sorrow.

For He wept at the grave of His dear friend, Lazarus,

even though He knew that He would raise him up

in a few moments.

 

There He spoke comfort to His beloved friends...

 

"I am the resurrection, and the life:

he that believeth in Me, though he were dead,

yet shall he live."

         ~ John 11:25

 

Now, we sorrow for those who fall asleep in Jesus,

but not as those who have no hope.

For in the resurrection,

God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

Our friendship is a lasting one.

It continues on forever.

 

In heaven, no one shall draw us away from the Lord,

but rather enhance our love towards Him.

For He will be our first love.

He will have our hearts affection.

 

"For in the resurrection they neither marry,

nor are given in marriage,

but are as the angels of God in heaven."

~ Matthew 22:30

 

Although our earthly marriage will not be sustained in heaven,

our relationships will  far surpass anything we have known.

For it is but a portrait that served its purpose

until believers in Christ shall be married to the Lord.

 

" And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem,

coming down from God out of heaven,

prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

 

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,

Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them,

and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them,

and be their God.

 

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;

and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,

neither shall there be any more pain:

for the former things shall be past away."

        ~ Revelation 21:2-4

Dear soul,

Do you have the assurance that when you die

you will be in the presence of the Lord in heaven?

Death for a believer is but a doorway

that open up into eternal life.

 

Those who fall asleep in Jesus

shall be reunited with their loved ones in heaven.

Those you've laid in the grave in tears,

you shall meet them again with joy!

Oh, to see their smile and feel their touch...

never to part again!

 

Yet, if you don't believe in the Lord, you're going to hell.

There is no pleasant way to say it.

 

The Scripture says,

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."

        ~ Romans 3:23

 

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved."

        ~ Romans 10:9

 

Don't fall asleep without Jesus

until you are assured of a place in heaven.

 

Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life

first you must believe in the Lord.

You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven

and put your trust in the Lord.

To be a believer in the Lord, ask for eternal life.

There's only one way to heaven and that's through the Lord Jesus.

That's God's wonderful plan of salvation.

 

You can begin a personal relationship with Him

by praying from your heart a prayer such as the following:

 

"Oh God, I'm a sinner.

I've been a sinner all of my life.

Forgive me, Lord.

I receive Jesus as my Savior.

I trust Him as my Lord.

Thank you for saving me.

In Jesus' name, Amen."

 

If you have received the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior

after reading this invitation, please let us know.

We would love to hear from you. Your first name is sufficient.

 

"Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved"

Welcome to the family of God!

 

We are excited about your decision to accept the Lord Jesus as your Savior,

and encourage you to find a church that you could be a part of

to help you grow in your new walk with Him. 

Also, we encourage you to develop a personal relationship with the Lord

by reading the Scriptures and praying to Him often.

Talk to Him as you would talk to a dearest friend.

He desires that closeness and intimacy with you!

 

"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd:

he shall gather the lambs with his arm,

and carry them in his bosom,

and gently lead those that are with young."

                 ~ Isaiah 40:11
