Heaven Q & A

Click below to hear Pastor Rob answer the questions submitted about Heaven. 

1. I understand the future Heaven will be located on the new earth. Will the new Heaven and the new earth be in the same place?

2. There are three places in the Bible where we are told that God will wipe away all of our tears. Why should there be tears when all death has passed away?

 3. The Bible describes John's vision of martyrs under the altar, yet highly honored. Can you please explain why they are under there?

4. Where is Heaven?

5. Do you put much credence into the stories of those that have had near death experiences?

6. If Christians go to Heaven as soon as they die, then please explain I Thessalonians 4:16, where it talks about the physical resurrection. 

7. Why do you believe that Jesus went to Hell when he died? I don't think it says this in the Bible.

8. What is the connection between our physical bodies today and our new bodies in Heaven?

9. When I was a young girl I lost my second child. I carried her for nine months and she was stillborn. Will I see her in heaven?

10. What happens to a body that is cremated?

11. If you die as a child, will your body in heaven be a child's body? If you die as an old person, will your body be the old version of yourself?


12. What will our dwelling place look like? Will we be able to pursue interests that we enjoy?

13. If we are reigning with Christ, who will our subjects?
