How big is heaven?
Here's the answer:
The Bible doesn't tell us exactly how big heaven is.
We don't really know because God does not measure things the way we measure them on earth! But in the book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible, God gives us some other details about heaven. Read Revelation 21-22 and you will discover that heaven has a beautiful river and fruit trees, a throne, golden streets, and jewels. There will be no darkness there, because God's glory is always shining like the sun!
Revelation 21:4 says that God "will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or sadness. There will be no more crying or pain. Things are no longer the way they used to be." Heaven is more wonderful than the most wonderful thing you can imagine!
But the most important thing we need to know about heaven is not how big it is or what it looks like, but how to get there. Every person on earth has sinned (done wrong things that God has said not to do), and sinners can never be allowed into heaven. But the good news is that God made a way for us to get to heaven when He sent His Son, Jesus, to earth. Jesus is the only person who has never sinned; He is perfect. So He was the only one who could take the punishment for our sin, which He did by dying on the cross. Three days later, He came back to life, showing us His great power. The only way to get to heaven is to turn away from our sin and trust Jesus to save us (John 3:16; Romans 6:23). And there will be room enough in heaven for everyone who has accepted Jesus’ salvation!
"After these things I heard a roar in heaven. It sounded like a huge crowd shouting, 'Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God'" (Revelation 19:1).
"Only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life will enter the city" (Revelation 21:27b).
