Heavenly Gates Bible Tour Guide
A Glimpse of Heaven Through Heaven's Gates Gift

Let's begin, shall we? Ever imagined what Heaven is like? Ever wanted just a glimpse of Heaven? What would be revealed in a glimpse of Heaven? Well, think of the most blissful place you can imagine and Isaiah and Paul both say ... Not even close!

Isaiah 64:4

For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what He hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him.

1 Corinthians 2:9

Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.

John 14:2-3

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

In Revelation, Chapter 4, we are given a Glimpse of Heaven and a description of God's Throne in Heaven. Let's look at the verses in Revelation, Chapter 4:

Revelation, Chapter 4

4 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in Heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in Heaven, and one sat on the throne.
3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
10 The four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sat on the throne, and worship Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

They say that a picture tells a thousand words. So, I will share a detailed glimpse of Heaven to give you the visual. An artist created an image from the words shared in Revelation Chapter 4:

Heavenly Gates Bible Timing
Peeking Through Heaven's Gates

The Bible reveals that after the End Times ...

Check out this study to learn more:

... Will come the Millennium, 1000 years of rest and peace on earth.

Check out this study to learn more:

And after the Millennium will come the Great White Throne Judgment.

Revelation 20:11-15

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Check out this study to learn more:

A Glimpse of Heaven finds the Book of Life being opened to see who will enter Heaven and who will go to the lake of fire to be tormented forever. Those who were not written in the Book of Life are thrown into the ... Lake of fire forever.

Those who are written in the Book of Life will live forever with God.

Then, God will create a New Heaven and New Earth, for the present Heaven and Earth are passed away and there is no more sea.

God will create a New Heaven and New Earth? But, why? Ponder on this ... Heaven and Earth were created in the beginning:

Genesis 1:1-2

1 In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

It is also written that God will make the earth void again:

Jeremiah 4:22-27

22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.
23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the Heavens, and they had no light.
24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the Heavens were fled.
26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by His fierce anger.
27 For thus hath the Lord said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.

And then He will create a New Heaven and New Earth, just as He did in the Book of Genesis.

Isaiah 65:17

For, behold, I create New Heavens and a New Earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

Just as He has said He would after the Millennium.

Revelation 21:1

And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth: for the first Heaven and the first Earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

It is obvious that the earth somehow becomes without form and void again. God said that He was going to do so, but that He would not make a full end and He said that He would make a New Heaven and New Earth.

Could this mean renewed?

What if God regenerates the earth in set time cycles as to cleanse the earth as these Scriptures seem to suggest?

This method of cleansing and recreating Heaven and Earth appears to happen every 7000 years according to Scripture. See the 7000 Year Study at the end of this page to learn more.

Revelation, Chapter 21-22 reveals what it will be like. I will let the Bible speak for itself because nobody could explain it as well as it is described there.

Heavenly Gates Bible Prophecy
Heaven's Gates Are Open To You

Revelation, Chapter 21

1 And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth: for the first Heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be His God, and He shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
9 And there came unto me one of the seven Angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the Holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve Angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the Angel.
18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
19 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;
20 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.
21 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.
22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

Revelation 22:1-7

1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him:
4 And they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads.
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the Holy Prophets sent His Angel to shew unto His servants the things which must shortly be done.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

  • God will then dwell with mankind: Revelation 21:3
  • There shall be no more tears, death, sorrow or pain: Revelation 21:4
  • He that overcomes, shall inherit all things and become a child of God: Revelation 21:7
  • The New Jerusalem will be beautiful: Revelation 21:10-22
  • The city will not need the sun or moon, for God is the light: Revelation 21:23
  • A river of life flows from God's throne through the land and the Tree of Life will bare 12 manners of fruit, and the leaves from the tree will be used for healing: Revelation 22:1-2
  • There will be no night time nor darkness: Revelation 22:5

So, you see it is not over when the End Times are over. It is not over when the Millennium begins. Many like to create their own view of what is going to happen and limit God. God has already laid out His plan. From the beginning to the end.
