A-Z: General definitions: Heaven


God's abode. According to the Bible, the special place where God and all immortal spirits reside; the blessed place where those accepted by God go to spend eternity as a result of their faith in Jesus Christ. Because in many earlier, especially medieval, depictions of heaven it was thought to be above the clouds, the terms 'heaven' or 'heavens' are sometimes used loosely to mean 'the skies'. To be in heaven is to be permanently in the unveiled presence pf God, an experience of supreme bliss. The New Testament book of Revelation tells that at the end of all things there will be 'a new heaven and a new earth' (Revelation 21:1-2).
