Heaven’s State

Many Christians assume Heaven is and always has been in a state of perfect paradise. We assume only the earth is corrupt. But consider:

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them.  The Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” Job 1:6-7

If Satan was in heaven, then heaven is corrupt.

“And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels waged war, and they did not prevail, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven.  And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.” Revelation 12:7-9

Heaven has to be cleansed!

“Our Father, who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:9-10

God’s will needs to be done in heaven! The earth needs to be cleaned up and so does heaven. Then they can join together:
“And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.” Revelation 21:10
