What will heaven be like? (Part 4)

This is the final and Part 4 of the last few posts entitled:  What will heaven be like? 
If you haven't read the previous posts, you may want to by scrolling down and starting with Part 1 so that you don't miss out on anything.  This post today is going to be scriptures that deal with the kingdom of heaven.

"1At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven." -Matthew 18:1-4

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." -Matthew 5:3

"From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." -Matthew 4:17

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." -Matthew 6:33

"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." -John 3:3

"And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven." -Mark 14:62

"11And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.  12His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
 13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
 14And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
 15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
 16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS." -Revelation 19:11-16

 These last verses sum up what heaven is all about. It is about Jesus the Son of God! He is our Lord and savior! He is our everything. He is the doorway to heaven. He is the only way, the truth, and the life. All praises be to Him!  He is our access to God the Father and heaven itself.  When we go to heaven we won't be thinking of ourselves and our needs. We will be thinking of God all the time. Our attention will always be fixed on Him, worshiping Him forever.

There are many more scriptures about heaven. I would have to write and post almost the whole bible if I put it up here. These are some of the greatest scriptures to meditate on though in order to renew the mind. I encourage you to pick up the bible, and do a search. Look up all the scriptures about heaven. And you will see all the spiritual edifying you will go through reading and praying God's Holy Word.

Thank you again for reading!  And have a blessed day in the Lord today in Jesus name!
