Memorable Scripture: Heaven

2 Corinthians 12:3-4
And I know such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows— how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

Last time I mentioned the stoning of Paul.
I believe he is the man he talking about and Paul actually died and went to the third heaven – Paradise.
The first heaven is where the birds fly.
The second heaven is where the stars shine.
The third heaven is beyond both to the abode of God.
In Paradise, Paul hears things he cannot express in words.
Can you imagine?
We describe God with such words as awesome, great, wonderful, and marvelous. But do those words accurately describe Him. No, but it’s the best we can do with language.
Paul heard such wonderful things and there are no words to describe it to anyone else.
The Bible does not give a lot of information about heaven. Gates of pearl, street of gold, peace and happiness. What little is known fades in comparison to what we shall actually experience.
Paul saw this and knew it.
Rest assured, you do not want to miss heaven.
