What is heaven?💫💖

“Kolob” – A Star Cluster✨

When we say the Lord’s Prayer, we are praying for heaven to come down to earth. When we pray, ‘thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven’ we are making this request.❤️ In the Book of Revelation, Saint John has a vision: “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,” and then there is a new dwelling place where we dwell with God.✨

We are told we will be given a heavenly body. “For we know that when this earthly tent is taken down (that is when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands” (2 Cor. 5:1).

In heaven there will be no loss. On earth, we suffer, but in heaven, it is not the same. There are golden streets, and I believe we can walk beside angels like St. Michael. We spend time with Jesus and get to walk with some of the apostles. God sits on his throne. And I imagine that his size spans more than the earth. He created all the universe(s). The earth is “his footstool.” He is the maker of everything!

We will be in his throne room. We can probably watch our favorite preacher in person and perhaps our favorite musician. We will hear choirs of angels sing in a type of song we’ve never heard. There will be lots of praising, infinite praising all day long, and there will be churches, flowers, and colors you have never seen. I do believe there are “days” up there.

Einstein told us and the Bible affirms that a day in heaven is like a thousand years! It’s in 2 Peter 3:8. Time varies based on velocity, energy, and mass (gravity). Let’s take mass (gravity), according to Einstein’s theory of relativity, as gravity increases, time slows down. ‘Time moves more quickly for someone in a low gravity environment than it does for someone in a high gravity environment.’

This may explain why time moves slower in God’s throne room. ‘The Lord dwells where gravity is high relative to that on earth.’ Furthermore, we are told by the Mormons that we know that His throne is in a ‘star cluster’ containing many large stars, something which would create massive gravity and slow it down perhaps to where a day could equal a thousand years!

Abraham also 3:2 reads: “And I saw the stars, they were very great, and one of them was nearest unto the throne of God: and there were many great ones which were near unto it.” The name of the one nearest to God’s throne is Kolob. Abraham tells us that Kolob “govern[s] all those [worlds] which belong to the same order as that upon which [Abraham] standest.” Kolob could be at the center of our galaxy. The gravitational pull created by this cluster of huge stars (along with gravity from dark matter) holds our galaxy together and keeps the outer rims (where we are) from flying off.

Moreover, heaven is a reunion with loved ones and friends. I personally believe you can have emotions and are still experiencing concsiousness there. Perhaps there are family and friends who welcome you ‘at the white pearly gates?’ I think it may be a different experience for each of us; nonetheless, beyond beautiful for all. ◆◆◆

  2. In Heaven, I will no longer feel pain, fear, or rejection. I know I will experience love in all its magnificent forms. Heaven is not another earth, but the ideal abode of anyone looking for a place to settle, a place to call home. Here, we will be welcomed with love, here we will experience the peace, kindness, and acceptance of our Father. Let’s get to know him well, so he may receive us with welcoming arms. Thanks, Zina for sharing this post about Heaven. It made me reflect and realize that I would like my Father to keep directing my life, and that in every decision I make, I may have his blessing.
