Verse
Psalm 102:18-22 NIV

Let this be recorded for a generation to come, 
    so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord: 
that he looked down from his holy height; 
    from heaven the Lord looked at the earth, 
to hear the groans of the prisoners, 
    to set free those who were doomed to die, 
that they may declare in Zion the name of the Lord, 
    and in Jerusalem his praise, 
when peoples gather together, 
    and kingdoms, to worship the Lord.

Verse
Psalm 27:4 NIV

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek: 
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life, 
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord 
    and to seek him in his temple.

For now we see in a mirror dimly,
but then face to face.
Now I know
in part;
then I shall know fully,
even as I have been fully known.

Heaven

When referring to this place, Christians often talk about living with God “in heaven” forever. But in fact the biblical teaching is richer than that: it tells us that there will be new heavens and a new earth—an entirely renewed creation—and we will live with God there.

We're on the Wrong Side of the Door

by C.S. Lewis

At present we are on the outside of the world, the wrong side of the door. We discern the freshness and purity of morning, but they do not make us fresh and pure. We cannot mingle with the splendors we see. But all the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so. Some day, God willing, we shall get in. 

Verse
Isaiah 25:6-9 ESV

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined. And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken.  It will be said on that day,  “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”

What Comfort Does a Christian Have in Death?

by Thomas Brooks

A Christian knows that death shall be the funeral of all his sins, his sorrows, his afflictions, his temptations, his vexations, his oppressions, his persecutions. He knows that death shall be the resurrection of all his hopes, his joys, his delights, his comforts, his contentments.

Verse
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 ESV

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
