There are the terms people speak or phrase verbally such as “Heaven on earth” or “Living in paradise”.

A luxury vacation in a beautiful location overseas or within other states can be a person’s example of experiencing their sense of “heaven on earth”.

An environment where one lives rich or famously in a predicament where they seemingly have the world at their feet with all that money can buy.

This may be a pleasure and satisfaction for many but it is nowhere near the definition of what true paradise or heaven on earth is.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying the scenery and experience of nature within the essences of recreation, leisure, and exploration gorgeously.

These encounters are temporary. They are also lacking within perfection and certainty.

Aside from everything having their potential flaws, these fancy and wonderful places or situations can all be destroyed within an instant by unforeseen events. A natural disaster is just one example as something to possibly occur to tarnish or bring a setback to one’s so-called heaven or paradise.

When Jesus returns to earth, he will raise all of our deceased bodies that have decayed to be reunited with each of our living souls.  

Our bodies will be renewed, perfected, and significant- though distinct- within identification to the bodies that we currently inhabit now.  

We will permanently reside in a place/setting similar in resemblance to the present world we live in now.


That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT  

The current heaven is an ethereal state where when the spirits of us believers separate from the body at physical death enter immediately into the presence of God.

In spite of this fact, this is not our final destination. It is just the intermediate state of being- an advancement in the process of made perfect in holiness befitting us for the presence of God.
