In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. The earth was void and formless; darkness was over the surface of the deep. God said ‘let there be light’ and there was light, he saw the light was good and separated the light from the darkness. God called the light ‘Day’ and the darkness he called ‘Night’. God made the firmament and divided the waters under the firmament from the water above it. He called the firmament ‘Heaven’ – Genesis 1:1-8.
Heaven is God’s throne and the earth is his footstool (Matt 5:34-35, Isaiah 66:1). ‘Who is this God?’ This was the question of an unbeliever at an evangelism outreach. God is our father in heaven (Matt 5:48, Matt 6:9), he created the heaven, the earth and all things in them (Gen 1:1). God is our refuge and strength (psalm 46:1), he is good, merciful, loving, kind and just (psalm 100:5). God is a spirit (John 4:24) and no man have seen God at anytime (John 1:18). God is true (John 3:33) and he sees all (Prov. 15:3)
The Home of the Angels
Angels are heavenly spirit that works for God numbering thousands upon thousands and ten thousand. They encircled God’s throne, the living creatures and the elders. In loud voice, they were saying “Worthy is the lamb, who has slain, to receive power, wealth, wisdom, honor, glory and praise (Rev. 4:11)” to glorify God.
The angels are agents sent to the living creatures on earth to deliver the message of God. In the book of revelation, seven angels were sent to seven churches saying ‘Repent and forsake your sins, keep my commandments, endure patiently, hold on to what you have so that no one will take your crown.
The Destination of the Saints
A saint is a great one who accepted Jesus Christ as his savior and sanctified in Christ Jesus (I Corin. 1:2). God loved the world, he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). We are so lucky to have Jesus Christ as our savior because God loves us. Heaven is indeed a prepared destination for someone who lived a holy life and heaven rejoice over every saint.
Are you a saint? If your answer is yes. Be prepared to enter the heavenly mansions. If you answer is NO or you are not sure, these are the steps you must follow

Let’s prayHeavenly father, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that you died for my sins, I believed you are raised from the dead for my justification; I receive Jesus Christ today as my personal lord and savior. Thank you Jesus. I am saved by grace. Amen
