VIDEO Flights of Fancy

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Revelation 21:1

Filmmakers have often tried to imagine heaven. In All Dogs Go To Heaven, the afterlife is a cloudy animated world of golden sparkles, carpets through the sky, and flights of fancy. A Robin Williams movie about heaven shows the actor wandering around inside impressionistic paintings and illusionary images. Early films depicted heaven as white, vapory fog with people walking around wearing wings.

Many people take their ideas about heaven from movies, but all the cinematic versions of heaven combined cannot begin to touch the real thing. The Bible alone is our source of definitive information, and the last two chapters of Scripture are especially rich. The Bible teaches that our universe and our planet will be recreated, and the vast city of God will descend as our eternal capital.

If you’re ever plagued by disturbing thoughts of the afterlife, don’t turn on a movie. Turn to Revelation 21 and 22. Read those chapters until the descriptions thrill you with their realities. Our Lord is preparing a marvelous home for His children.

Did you ever stop to think that God is going to be as pleased to have you with Him in heaven as you are to be there? A. W. Tozer
