What is heaven? What does the word "heaven" mean to you? For a lot of people, heaven is the place where God lives, or where good people go when they die. The thought of heaven, for a lot of people, is “an unpleasant pleasant thought". It is a pleasant thought, because heaven, for a lot of people, is associated with good, peace, joy and happiness, an eternal place of great wonder. It is an unpleasant thought, for the simple reason, that when people think or talk about heaven, right in the back of their minds, they believe, that the only way for them to get to heaven, is to die, and nobody wants to die.

What is heaven? A lot of people have their own versions, of what they believe heaven is, or could or should be, and a lot of their ideas, are rooted in their own desires, and what they would want heaven to be. So, from the perspective of most people, apart from the ideas that heaven is where God lives, heaven is representative of those things they most desire. For a lot of people, heaven is the place, where they will, one day, after they die, live in peace with their loved ones who passed away, and where they will experience no more pain, tears or any kind of suffering. A lot of people see heaven, as their one true home, where they will go and live forever, with God. The only thing, that keeps people from heaven, as a lot of people believe, is life. Because, most people believe, that for one to go to heaven, you will first need to die. And death should not come by your own hand, but according to the will of God, and in God’s own time. I encountered people, who, as a result of all the pain and suffering they witness, and experience on earth, would much rather die, and go to heaven. (Careful what you wish for, the ears of God hears every utterance proceeding out of your mouth) After all, heaven is the place, where there is no more pain, and no more suffering, no more tears, and no more troubles. Since a lot of people see heaven, as a place of great peace and tranquility, the thought, and idea of going to heaven, is attractive, and much rather preferred, than all the suffering, pain and misery, people are exposed to on earth.

It is of course true, that God is aware, of all these thoughts, and conflicts in mankind. A lot of people want to go to heaven, as soon as possible, and that, because they are just tired of the life they are experiencing on earth. They are tired of the pain, some of them are experiencing, they are tired of the troubles and conflicts, which they always have to deal with, they are tired of the uncertainties of life on earth, the roller-coaster rides they are forced to take, and they are tired of the lack of peace. A lot of people are just tired of the constant effort, to try and hold things together; they feel tired of keeping things from falling apart, even themselves. To them, heaven is just a better place, a place of no effort, no struggles, and no more needless strains. And, in spite of all these realities humans are faced with, good humans, God is fine with keeping them on earth. Why?

Some people feel, that if earth is such a great place to live on, according to GOD, then GOD should come and live on earth, and they’ll go to heaven. Well, God wants me to remind you, that GOD saw this plight of man, and decided to refresh your memory, to what God chose to do from the beginning. God created mankind and put them on earth, male and female, Adam and Eve. God joined them on earth, and walked among them. -Genesis 3:8 Then there was the fall of man of course, and things changed, curses came, and man’s days became hard and difficult, death was introduced, and tears and suffering, became part of man’s life on earth. God gave mankind everything most people desire to have, right from the beginning. God gave peace, a home, eternal life, no pain, no trouble, no suffering, just peace and tranquility, and God walked with man, right here on earth. The days of heaven, were right here on earth, and God wants you to know, that those days are here again. (Yes I know, your faith needs to increase, because without faith... you know the story... "the just shall live by faith" -Habbakuk 2:4)

There is one thing, which made all the difference, one thing which changed everything. If you think about the condition of the earth, before God placed man on earth, it was terrible! And one thing changed it all, and that one thing is: “THE BLESSING OF GOD.” That is the one thing, which made the difference then, and brought all the change, for the earth, and for man. After man despised God’s counsel, and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (forbidden fruits: Adam and Eve were permitted by God to eat of all the fruits in the Garden of Eden, except for the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but driven by desire and greed, they chose to take and eat the fruits, which God commanded them to not eat of. -Genesis 2-3), what happened? The curse came, and the Blessing left. (Yes, blessings can leave, ask Adam and Eve, but primarily as a result of disobedience, rejecting God's Words and Commands.) THE BLESSING OF GOD brought abundance, but the curse took all that abundance away, and brought lack and hardship instead. Friend, THE BLESSING OF GOD has made the difference then, and the BLESSING OF GOD, is what will make the difference now. The curse brought sickness, pain, misery, trouble, hardship and death. But the BLESSING OF GOD can reverse the curse.

In the Book of Genesis, it is written, that after God made everything: “GOD BLESSED THEM.” (Genesis 1) THE BLESSING OF GOD, brought the light, the life and what was good. That same BLESSING OF GOD is available to you, and you can experience the days of heaven on earth, as a result of THE BLESSING OF GOD. THE BLESSING OF GOD chases the curse away: death, sickness, pain, misery, hardship and trouble. Before THE BLESSING OF GOD came, the earth was dark and full of chaos, THE BLESSING OF GOD changed all of that. If you want the curse of sickness, pain, misery and trouble, chaos, hardship and death, to be chased away, then what you need, is THE BLESSING OF GOD. If you want the chaos in your life, to be chased away, and for the days of heaven on earth, to be your reality, then you need THE BLESSING OF GOD.

“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them. God blessed them.” (Genesis 1:27-28 NIV)


“The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;

Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive THE BLESSING FROM THE LORD.” (Psalm 24)

THE BLESSING OF GOD, has made the difference between life and death, for Adam and Eve, THE BLESSING OF GOD added years to their lives, centuries. Yes, I know, it is hard or difficult to believe, if you lack faith and wisdom, because how is it even possible or conceivable, that humans can live for hundreds or thousands of years!!

"Adam lived 930 years, and then he died." -Genesis 5:5 

The same thing can happen to you. 

"The just shall live by his faith." -Habbakuk 2:4

There is so much revelation and insight concealed in that verse, it is the foundation of a long life for the upright. There is much, that mankind still need to understand, about the true significance and impact, of the Blessing of God -it is key to a lot of things. Adam and Eve, experienced the days of heaven, on earth, and their lives were prolonged, as a result of “THE BLESSING OF GOD.”

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusts in You.” (Psalm 84:11-12)
