Revelation chapters 21 and 22 describe heaven as a beautiful city in splendid detail. The holy city has walls, gates, foundations, streets, rivers, trees, vegetation, and more. While the Apocalypse of Jesus Christ is full of much symbolism, there is nothing in the context of those chapters that should lead us to believe that heaven is anything other than a physical place.
Heaven is not the figment of a trumped-up religious imagination. It is not Neverland or Candyland or Alice in Wonderland. Heaven is more than pie-in-the-sky-by-and-by. It’s a real place where God the Father dwells and Jesus sits at his right hand.
The Bible says there’s a new world coming! It’s something all believers in Jesus anticipate by faith.
