Warning to my reader: this blog post will be an exploration, as I work through my own thoughts and feelings on my longing for heaven. Let me start with a C.S. Lewis quote: “The books or the music in which we thought the beauty was located will betray us if we trust to them; it was not in them, it only came through them, and what came through.

    chapter in Genesis (the first book in the Bible). It is an excerpt from a larger work titled Secrets of Heaven, which was originally written and published in in Latin as– Arcana Coelestiaby Emanuel Swedenborg (–). Although Swedenborg’s best known work is his Heaven and Hell,this first chapter of Secrets of HeavengivesFile Size: KB. Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.

      Rather, I mean the age of this earth and this heaven is not our home; our home is the new age of the new heavens and new earth. So, with that qualification in mind, let me show you three ways in which this psalm pulses for heaven and for God. A Longing for Heaven, a Longing for God (vv. 1–4) How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!   Longing For Home: omewhere deep within each of us is a desire, a longing for a world very different from our own. It is there first of all because we have been created in the image of God and were intended to live with him in a world of love. Though his image has been defaced by the fall, there are still remnants of it within us.

LONGING FOR HEAVEN, by ANNE BRADSTREET Poet's Biography First Line: As weary pilgrim now at rest Last Line: Then come, deare bridgrome, come away! Subject(s): Children; Home; Marriage; Puritans; Sickness; Childhood; Weddings; Husbands; Wives; Illness As weary pilgrim now at rest Hugs with delight his silent nest, His wasted limbes now lye full softAuthor: ANNE BRADSTREET.We are to love this world but long for heaven.

We are to appreciate this world and give thanks to God for this great gift, but we need to know that this world and all that is in it will pass away. For this reason we need to put our hope and our longing in the eternal existence that is in front of us.The science of heaven would be as an enigma to our minds.

We need to hunger and thirst for the righteousness of Christ; we need to be molded and fashioned by the transforming influence of His grace, that we may be fitted for the society of heavenly angels.

In order to be at home in heaven, we must have heaven enshrined in our hearts here.
