Who Will Be There?

The Shaw Pocket Bible Handbook, Walter A. Elwell, Editor, (Harold Shaw: Wheaton , IL, 1984), p. 351.

The abode of God (1 Kings 8:30) The abode of the angels (Mark 13:32) Believers will be there in due course (1 Pet. 1:4).

The New Testament uses striking imagery to bring out the wonder and loveliness of heaven (gates of pearl and a street of gold&md; Rev. 21:21). Heaven means eternal joy in the presence of God.
