There are so many things that God has given us in His creation to enjoy here on earth that will be absent in Heaven. A moon light might from heaven or a beautiful sunrise or sunset. When God created the sun, moon, and stars on the fourth day and named each of the stars individually and the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light (sun and moon) to rule the night, He knew that they would only be for awhile and in the New Heaven and the New Earth they would not be needed. (Revelation 21:23) There will be no temple in Heaven nor any church buildings for Jesus Himself, the Lamb of God, and God Himself are the temple of it. (Revelation 21:22)

There won’t be any particular denomination in Heaven thinking they are the only ones deserving to be there. There will however be a name. It will be called the church of the first born. (Hebrews 12:22-25) There will be absence of hate, sorrow, pride, fear, unbelief, corrupt actions, murderers, whore mongers, witchcraft, idolators, and last by not least, liars. (Revelation 21:8) That means very few politicians as we know them. Solomon continued the list by adding and repeating a proud look, a lying tongue, abortionists, a wicked heart that deceiveth imaginations, feet running swift to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies and sowers of discord. It makes you wonder how happy the church trouble-makers will be. (Proverbs 6:17-18)

No wonder the scriptures read, ‘strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:13-14) Absence of malice will be total joy for we who are tired of being the this old sin-cursed flesh. The scripture records that the last tear will be shed. I’m sure God will have an adequate size hankie. The hearse driver will never crank his engine anymore. The last heartbreak will have occurred and crying will have ceased. The last ache and pain will be no more for everything bad will be no more! (Revelation 21:4)

In closing, the second stanza of ‘O that will be glory’ says it all.

When by the five of His infinite grace,

I am accorded in Heaven a place,

Just to be there to look on His face,

will through the ages be glory for me.

O that will be glory for me, glory for me, glory for me;

When by His grave I shall look upon His face,

That will be glory, be glory for me
