The New Heaven

23 Jul

The New Heaven…

Shamayim is the Hebrew word for heaven. The “im” at the end is always plural, but in heaven it has a special form which specifically means two. Shamayim means two heavens.

We think of heaven as that which comes after this life is over. Heaven is what happens then, but that’s not the whole story. Heaven is shamayim, and that means two. If one is coming after, then the other heaven is now.

Heaven can’t just be the place you go to after this life; it has to be the place you live now. For the child of God, heaven is not just something to happen in the future.

It’s what we live in now. We already have been born from above. It’s not just about getting into heaven, it’s about letting heaven get into you.

If heaven were only heaven, then you could never know it until you die. But heaven, shamayim, means there is more than one. Don’t wait until you die to start living in heaven.

Start dwelling in it right now. Don’t wait until you die to live in it. Heaven is too important to not live it now.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

Live today as if you were in Heaven now. Have a heavenly day.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
