That is Heaven!

Heaven is the habitation of the great God, where He dwells in His infinite glory!

Heaven is a freedom from all evil, both of sin and suffering.

There is no SIN there. Grace weakens sin but it is glory which abolishes sin!

There is no affliction there. Sin and sorrow came in together and they shall go out together. There the Shunamite's son no more complains of his aching head; nor Mephibosheth of his lame feet. There Job's blotches are perfectly cured; and Lazarus' sores are all dried up!

Heaven is the quintessence of all blessedness, the sum of all felicity. Reckon up all comforts and pleasures, and satisfactions, and delights, and happiness, and put them all together; and then separate from them all finiteness and imperfection; that is Heaven!

All the objects of joy which are scattered among the creatures are everlastingly heaped up in Heaven! Whatever it is that you delight in; it will be in Heaven!

[Matthew Mead]

Proverbs 8:18 ...  Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.

Psalm 16:11 ... Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Revelation 21:18-21 ...  And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.  And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.  And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.❤
