Heaven is both a geographic location and a state of mind. A state of complete happiness. For heaven defined in the bible is the abode of God, the angels, and the spirits of the righteous after death; the place or state of existence of the blessed after the mortal life (Dictionary.com). See Job 1:6-7 NIV; Revelations 4 (NIV) has a geographic locations but it also can remain in your heart which will affect your mind. This is the same as Hades.
The Narrow and Wide Gates
Matthew 7:12-14 (NIV)
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. (Jesus Christ) “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me- John 14:6 NIV. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 There is a way that appears to be right,
but in the end it leads to death- Proverbs 14:12 NIV.But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Whoever heeds DISCIPLINE shows the way to life,
but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.- Proverbs 10:17 NIV
Reject anything that is not like God. It will lead to the road of perdition
Why do “few” find the way to life? Answer:
John 3:17-19 (KJV)
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. – Romans 8:1 ESV
Condemn- to pronounce guilty, judgement
18 He that believeth (Accept something as true) on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.- I John 1:5 NIV
Darkness: Wickedness, evil, iniquity, satan "Darkness" in both the Old Testament (Heb. hasak [J;v'j]) and New Testament (Gk.skotos [skovto"]) is an evocative word. If light symbolizes God, darkness connotes everything that is anti-God: the wicked ( Prov 2:13-14 ; 1 Thess 5:4-7 ), judgment ( Exod 10:21 ; Matt 25:30 ), and death ( Psalm 88:12 ). Salvation brings light to those in darkness ( Isa 9:2 ). Although darkness is opaque to man, it is transparent to God ( Psalm 139:12 ). Indeed, God can veil himself in darkness at moments of great revelation ( Deut 4:11 ; 5:23 ; Psalm 18:11 ).
God Rules the Darkness. The biblical view of darkness and light offers a unique contrast. There is no thought that darkness is equal in power to God's light. The absolute, sovereign God rules over the darkness and the powers of evil. This is evident in several ways. First, God knows the darkness. He knows where it is ( Job 34:22 ) and what it contains ( Dan 2:22 ). Second, God rules over the darkness because he created it ( Isa 45:7 ; cf. Amos 4:13 ; 5:8 ).
