48 SCRIPTURES on the theme of Heaven

  1. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:14 The wall of [New Jerusalem] city [sits on] 12 [raised] foundations, each emblazoned with [one of] the names of the 12 apostles of the Lamb.
    note: 12 Apostles: Simon {Listener} aka Peter {Rock} & his brother Andrew {Manly}; James {Heel-Grabber} and JAHn (sons of Zebedee [Giver]); Philip {Horse-Lover} & Bartholomew {Son-Of-The-Ridge}; Thomas {Twin} & MattithYahu [Matthew] the tax-collector; James {Heel-Grabber} (son of Alphaeus [Change]) & Thaddaeus (lit. Lebbaeus); Simon {Listener} from Canaan {LowLand}, and Matthias who replaced Judas.
  2. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 22:1 The angel shows me a pure river of water of life, 😇, clear as crystal, flowing out of the throne[s] of [YHVH] the Eloah and of the Lamb.
  3. Ezekiel 1:22 Above the heads of the living creature[s], the Sacred-Sky shines: a huge dome glittering with ice-crystals, stretching out over the [beings'] heads [into eternity].
  4. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 22:3 The [earth] no longer [holds] any curse, 😇. The throne[s] of [YHVH] the Eloah and [YahShua] the Lamb [stay] in [New Jerusalem]. [YAH's] servants forever offer divine service to [Him].
  5. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:11 [New Jerusalem] radiates the [Sh’khinah] glory of [YHVH] the Eloah. The city's light [glints] like a priceless stone, 😇, a crystal-clear diamond.
  6. Hebrews 13:14 For none of the perishing cities of the world are our home, 😇. We're looking forward to our city [population] in heaven, which is yet to come [to earth].
    note: New Jerusalem. Your 'people' are not on earth yet. If you are holy, you are lonely here on earth.
  7. 2nd Corinthians 12:4 Now, 😇, [YAH] snatches this man up into paradise. [There the man] hears [YAH speak] inexpressible words that [YAH] allows no mortal to repeat, [because those words could blow up the universe].
    note: Paradise = Gan-‘Eden, not necessarily synonymous with heaven.
  8. Psalms 46:5 [Elohim stabilizes] the center of [the heavenly city of peace]. Nothing can shake her, 😇. Elohim surrounds her, his face [shining like an eternal] dawn.
  9. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:1 The first heaven and the first earth pass away. Then I see a new heaven and a new earth, 😇. The sea [of beast-nations] no longer exists.
    note: See Rev 21:1 song. ‘No more sea’ refers to the ‘sea’ of evil people, the beast-nations [Gentiles] in Rev 17:15.
  10. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 7:16 The [holy ones] never again feel hunger, 😇, nor thirst. Neither the sun, nor any burning heat, ever again beats down on them.
  11. Hebrews 12:22 But you, 😇, have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living Elohim. You've come to [countless] myriads of angels in festive assembly.
  12. Psalms 46:4 River stream[s] light up [the] city of Elohim, the holy [place] of joy [where our eternal spirits] dwell [with] Ha-Elyon {The-Most-High}.
  13. IsaiYAH 33:20 Look upon [future] Zion {Shining-Peak}, the city [we believers will fill with] sacred-feasts, 😇. Your eyes [come to] see [New] Jerusalem, [your] quiet home, your indestructible dwelling. [YAH] permanently places her tent-pegs. [He] secures her with [eternally] unbreakable [stabilizing] ropes.
  14. IsaiYAH 33:21 [Surrounding New Jerusalem,] YHVH [provides] our homeland, 😇. [YAH fills our country with] broad rivers and [sparkling] streams. No warship nor tyrant's yacht ever again sails [our waters].
  15. IsaiYAH 49:10 [My redeemed people] never [again] hunger nor thirst, 😇. The searing-wind and sun never [again] strike them. Their merciful [Messiah] leads them. He guides them by springs of [eternal] water.
  16. JeremiYAH 23:4 I eventually set up shepherds over [my flock]. The [shepherds] feed [my sheep]. [My people] fear no more. They never get depressed. They never lack anything [again],” promises YHVH.
  17. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:23 Neither [YahShua] the Lamb nor [the New City Of Peace] have need for the sun, nor [for] the moon to shine there, 😇. The splendor of [YHVH] the Eloah lights the city. [YahShua] the Lamb [is the city's] lamp.
    note: The Lamb is usually placed in the previous verse. Sh’khinah = glory.
  18. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:10 This angel carries me away in [YAH's] spirit to a great and high mountain, 😇. He shows me that great city: the holy City-of-Peace. It descends out of heaven from [YHVH] the Eloah.
    note: The New Jerusalem will not fit in the country of Israel. New Jerusalem is almost as big as earth's moon. It would stretch from Los Angeles, California to Dallas, Texas, and that high again into outer space. It towers approximately 30 times taller than our earth's atmosphere.
  19. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:27 And there will in no way [ever] enter into New Jerusalem any polluting thing, nor any [being] who commits shameful acts or [who] lies, 😇. Only the [people] whose names stand written in [YahShua] the Lamb's book of life may enter [the City Of Peace].
  20. Psalms 84:10 A single day [of celebrating] in [YAH's heavenly] ‘courtyards’ is better than 1000 [days doing anything anywhere in our universe]. I'd rather stand at the threshold of the [celestial] home of my Elohim, than to dwell in the [palatial] mansions of lawless [celebrities].
    note: Religionists use this verse to entice you to pay to build their whitewashed tombs. This verse is not about going to an earthly temple, synagogue nor church building. No one considers one day in a church better than 1000 days anywhere else.
  21. Psalms 84:6 [We] pass through the valley of Baca {Weeping-And-Moaning} to acquire [a paradise] of [eternal] wellsprings, 😇. There [our] blessings sprinkle [down] to fill pools [of delight].
  22. Hebrews 11:16 But [we] true believers long for a better fatherland, a homeland higher than the heavens. So YHVH stands proud to be called the Eloah of these faithful people. For YAH has prepared a [heavenly] ‘city’ for [we who live] faithfully [on earth].
  23. Psalms 102:19 For [YAH] looks down from the height of his sanctuary. From heaven, YHVH's [eyes] survey the [entire] earth [in a microsecond].
  24. IsaiYAH 49:11 I eventually make roadways [through] all my mountains, 😇. I build up [wide] ‘highways’ [for you, my people, to travel through the universe and beyond].
  25. Psalms 84:4 [Indescribable] happiness fills [the beings] who dwell in [YAH's heavenly] home, 😇. They continuously [light up in wild yet clear hullaballoos of singing, dancing praise] celebration. [Pause/Interlude.]
    note: #1984 halal, not mere 'praise'.
  26. Psalms 84:2 My life-breath is dying to [stay] in your [heavenly] courts, YHVH. My heart and flesh cry out to [stay connected to the] living El {Power}.
  27. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:12 [New Jerusalem stands surrounded] by a great and high wall, [punctuated] by 12 gates. At the gates [hover] 12 angels. On the gates [YAH has] inscribed the names of the 12 tribes of [ancient] Israel's [crazy] sons.
  28. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:21 The 12 gates [of New Jerusalem] are 12 pearls. Each gate is made of a single pearl. The [main] street of the city is [paved with] pure gold, like transparent glass.
  29. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:16 The city layout is a square, (its length equal to its width). With his rod, the angel measures the city at 12,000 stadia [~1,500 miles], with equilateral length, width and height.
    note: The entire of country of modern Israel would fit many times into the ground level of New Jerusalem's metropolis.
  30. Psalms 65:4 Happiness floods the human you choose, [saints] you bring near to you, whom you let dwell in your courts. We [believers] eventually spring [out from the poverty of death] into the abundance of all-things-wonderful in your sacred home, your [heavenly] palace.
  31. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:25 The gates of [the New City Of Peace] stay open all day, [forever], because night will never exist there, 😇.
  32. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:24 The [people YAH saved from every] nation walk [forever] in the light [of YAH's splendor]. The kings of the earth [keep on] bringing their glory and honor into New Jerusalem.
  33. Psalms 84:9 [😇, catch a vision of heaven!] See [YHVH] Elohim, our shield! Gaze at the face of [his] Messiah!
  34. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:18 The city wall of [New Jerusalem] is built of diamonds. And the city [inside] is pure gold, like clear glass.
  35. Psalms 84:7 [We believers] go from strong to stronger, 😇. [Every one of us eventually] appears before ELohim on the [heavenly] shining mountain.
  36. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:15 The angel who talks with me holds a golden measuring-rod, to measure the city and its wall.
  37. Psalms 84:1 I'm boiling [over] in [spiritual] ecstasy, [experiencing the heavenly utopia] where you live, YHVH [commander of angel] armies.
    note: An instrumentally-accompanied song written for a skilled music director to arrange and conduct, and for priestly descendants of [ancient rebel] Korah to sing. To the tune of, or in the style of, or related to ‘the winetrough’. This is not a song praising a temple nor any other religious building. The psalm-writer is experiencing an epiphany of pentecostal bliss, being transported into heaven's [temple] via YAH's spirit. You can have this same experience by properly praising and/or fasting.
  38. Psalms 84:5 The highway to human happiness is to [praise, pray and fast so intensely that we, 😇, spiritually enter heaven. There YAH fills] our hearts with his strength.
  39. Ezekiel 48:35 [The circumference of the wall] surrounding [the city south of the temple measures] 18 thousand [cubits (~ 6 miles)]. From now [on, the city is named,] ‘YHVH Is Here.’”
    note: 4500 x 4 = 18000.
  40. John 13:33 Little children, I remain [visibly] with you only a little longer. You soon search [for] me. But [remember] what I said to the Judaeans: ‘Where I go, you can't come.’ That's true for you too.
  41. Hebrews 4:3 For it is we [true disciples], 😇, who consistently [live out our] faith, [who rise to] enter into [eternal] rest. YHVH says, “I've [always] sworn in my fury [that disobedient people] NEVER enter into my rest.” [Yet YAH loves us believers so much that] he finished building [our place of eternal rest] way back at foundation of the kosmos.
    note: Psalm 95:11
  42. Ezekiel 41:1 Then, 😇, the [angel-man] brings me to the vision-sanctuary. He measures the columns [that frame its doorway]. The [columns measure] 6 cubits [10.5 feet] thick on each side, [matching] the width of [the walls surrounding] the [sacred] dwelling.
    note: These architectural measurements are cumbersome to read, but essential for creating models of the 3rd temple. The point of all these measurements is given in Ezekiel 43:10.
  43. Psalms 84:3 [😇, whereas on earth we roast food on the temple's altars, heavenly] ‘altars’ provide homes for [angelic creatures] resembling skipper-birds [sparrows]. Swift [sparrow-like creatures] nest and lay their young in [heaven's altar], under the smiling face of YHVH-Commander-Of-Armies, my King, my Elohim.
    note: This is speaking of heaven. It's impossible for birds to live in functioning cooking altars (ovens/stoves) on earth.
  44. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:19 All kinds of precious stones garnish the [exposed] foundations of the wall of New Jerusalem city. The 1st foundation is diamond; the 2nd, sapphire; the 3rd, chalcedony; the 4th, emerald;
  45. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:13 Each side-wall of [New Jerusalem] (East, North, South and West) holds 3 gates.
    note: 12 gates matching the 12 tribes of Israel.
  46. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:17 The angel measures the [thickness of the] wall of [New Jerusalem] at 144 human-measure cubits [216 feet].
    note: 144 cubits ~= 72 yards, 200 to 216 feet. Some translations say this is the wall's height, though that interpretation appears to contradict the previous verse. Anyway, a huge wall.
  47. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:26 [Billions of people] bring the [best]: the dignity and riches of the nations, into [the New City Of Peace].
  48. Apocalypsis (Revelation) 21:20 The 5th [foundation], sardonyx; the 6th, carnelian; the 7th, chrysolite; the 8th, beryl; the 9th, topaz; the 10th, chrysoprase; the 11th, a jacinth [turquoise]; the 12th, amethyst.
