What Did Jesus Say About Heaven

After the death of Jesus, his disciples had many questions about heaven. One of their biggest questions was: “What did Jesus say about heaven?” This article will answer that question by providing the exact words of Jesus.

What Did Jesus Say About Heaven

1. He came from heaven

You can look at it this way: Jesus came from heaven. He was born of a virgin, and he was the Son of God. Jesus is God, and he came down from heaven to earth. In other words, he’s very much like Santa Claus.

After his birth, Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by Satan (who tried to convince him to worship him instead). Then John baptized him and people started following him around everywhere he went—they even called themselves “disciples” (what we now call friends or followers), which means “one who learns.” Now that they had followed him around for a while, they decided that they would have an important job once Jesus became king–so they also became known as apostles (which means either “letter carrier” or “messenger”).

Then one day when some people didn’t like what Jesus said about their religion or political views…they got together with some others who shared those same feelings against their government too and planned out how they would kill this guy named Stephen–who was one of those apostles! They threw rocks at him until he died; then later on those same men killed Peter too since everyone knew that Peter believed in his friend Stephen’s teachings…and so did almost everyone else who liked them too!

2. He returned to heaven

Jesus ascended to heaven, right? That’s what most Christians believe. In fact, that is one of the central doctrines of Christianity: Jesus died on a cross and rose again three days later. He then ascended into heaven and took his seat at the right hand of God.

So if you are a Christian, why do you need to worry about what Jesus said about heaven? Well first off, everyone should be concerned with knowing their own faith and practicing it in their daily lives. But secondly, when you know what your beliefs really are (and how they compare to others), it gives you an opportunity to grow as a person as well as help others in doing so as well!

3. He is our advocate in heaven

  • Jesus is our advocate in heaven. It is important to remember that Jesus was God, yet He came to earth as a man. As God, He had the power of life and death; but like man, he had to die for us (see John 3:16). In this way, His perfect life and death provide the basis for our advocacy (Romans 5:8).
  • Jesus’ advocacy is based on His perfect love for us. Jesus loved us so much that He willingly gave up His own life so that we would have an opportunity at eternal life if we believe in Him (1 John 3:16). This means that it’s not enough just to believe in Him—we must also love others with all our hearts because everything we do will be done before God and judged accordingly (Matthew 7:21-23).

4. He is the resurrection and life

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” John 5:24

Jesus said that he is the resurrection and the life. Jesus’ work on earth was one of deliverance from sin and death through his atoning work on the cross. His followers are assured of having a share in this salvation through faith in Christ alone.

5. He gives eternal life

Jesus tells us that heaven is a gift from God. We must receive this gift by believing in Jesus and accepting Him as our Lord and Savior.

Let’s take a look at what Jesus said about heaven:

  • “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
  • “There are many rooms in my Father’s house.” (John 14:2)
  • “Do not be afraid, for I know where you are going…to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:6)

6. We must be born again to see heaven

In John 3:3, Jesus said that “unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” In other words, you can’t go to heaven if you’re still in your sinful nature! To reach heaven and enter into God’s presence requires a new birth. This is what Jesus was referring to when He told Nicodemus that “[y]ou must be born again” (John 3:7). The Greek word translated “again” is another and means “from above,” indicating a change from one level or realm to another higher plane or dimension.

To have eternal life means having direct access to the very presence of God Himself in His Kingdom—a place where there will be no more sorrow or death but only joy forevermore (Revelation 21:4).

7. Jesus’ work on the cross made heaven a reality for us. Takeaway: Jesus talked a lot about going to heaven and wanted His disciples to know they could go there, too.

Jesus’ work on the cross made heaven a reality for us. One day, when Jesus was on earth, He talked to His disciples about what would happen to them after they died. They were surprised and afraid. Then Jesus said something that changed everything: “I am the resurrection and the life.” (John 11:25)

What did Jesus mean? He meant that no matter what happens in this world—no matter how difficult your life might be—you can still have hope because of Him! In fact, you can still be happy now because of Him!

You may feel like your problems are too big or bad things have happened too often in your life to ever feel good again…but God promises not just one lifetime but eternity! And in heaven there’s no more pain or sickness; it’s perfect peace at last!”

Closing

Jesus didn’t just talk about heaven, though. He also wanted His disciples to know that they could go there, too. And now that you have learned some of the things Jesus said about heaven, I hope you have a clearer picture of how this promised land is more than just a promise—but also a fact that we can enjoy in our lives here on earth!
