Second installment of five from a 'travel-style book' written by Dr. David Jeremiah titled "Discover Paradise: A Guidebook to Heaven, Your True Home".
The small book with lots of colored graphics and fun sub-headings has one section titled "Five Reasons Why Heaven Will Be Exciting":
1. God is Exciting.
2. We will be Exciting.
3. Our Friends will be Exciting.
4. Our Work will be Exciting.
5. Heaven will Fulfill Our Longings.
2. We will be Exciting!
"Behold, I (show) you a mystery.
We shall not all sleep, but WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED--
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound,
and the dead will be raised incorruptible,
and WE SHALL BE CHANGED."
~ I Corinthians 15:51, 52
"Twice in that verse, what does it say about us? We're going to be changed.
"For our citizenship is in heaven,
from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior,
the Lord Jesus Christ,
who will TRANSFORM OUR LOWLY BODY
that it may be conformed to His glorious body,
according to the working by which He is able eve to subdue
all things to Himself."
~ Philippians 3:21, 22
"Heaven will not be boring because we will not be boring. Like the Lord, we will be exciting. When we get to Heaven, all of the reasons that we are boring now will be gone--reshaped into a perfect resurrection body. No matter how boring we might have been on this earth, there won't be one moment of boredom in our hearts when we get there."
