Will we ever be bored in Heaven?

One way to address this question is to ask how often do we get bored on Earth? When we get bored, what do we do? Hang out with friends? Visit places? In Heaven, we'll be able to do all that and far more. We'll also spend an eternity getting to know God, an infinite being. We'd have to go out of our way to be bored.

Will we have bodies in Heaven or will we be disembodied spirits?

Believers will have physical bodies in the Eternal Heaven when they are resurrected in the future(1 Cor. 15:12-58; 1 Thess. 4:16-17; Rev 20:4-6). As for Present Heaven, the Bible does not give a clear answer. However, I believe we will have bodies of some kind for the following reasons:

  • Robes are given to the martyrs in Heaven to wear(Rev. 6:9-11).
  • People hold palm branches(Rev. 7:9)
  • Peter, James and John recognized Moses and Elijah when Moses and Elijah were momentarily on Earth during Jesus' transfiguration(Matt. 17:1-3)

Where is Heaven currently?

Scripture mentions Heaven as being in the sky. Jesus is taken up to Heaven and as his disciples watched until a cloud hid Him(Acts 1:9). The Lord is described as coming down from Heaven(1 Thes. 4:15-16). Some think Heaven is in some distant part of the galaxy or the universe, but I don't believe so because God will remake the universe(Rev. 21:1) without the Curse(Rev. 22:3). My guess is right now Heaven is in some unseen dimension or realm.

Isn't Heaven beyond imagination?

Although much about Heaven is beyond human imagination, the Bible tells enough to get us excited.

What do you base these tours about Heaven on?

They are based on books from the Bible.
