Eternal Life's a Beach

Will You Be Walking It?

by Pastor John Hamel


“… Behold, a door was opened in Heaven … and one sat on the Throne … and before the Throne was a Sea of Glass like unto crystal…” (Revelation 4:1-6)


I grew up just outside of Boston, Massachusetts.  The ocean has always been a pretty big part of my life.  I love the ocean and take every opportunity to go walk on the beach.  I look forward to the beaches of Heaven, as well.  


Someone once wrote that there would be no oceans in Heaven and therefore, no beaches.  However, the Bible teaches otherwise. 


Although there are no gigantic oceans such as the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, etc., the Bible reveals there are multiple smaller seas.  The Bible also reveals that these seas are surrounded by sand. (Psalm 72:8; Isaiah 42:4, 10-12; Jeremiah 5:22)  Therefore, there are beaches. 


If you’re looking for me in Heaven, check the beaches first.  That’s where you’ll find me when I’m not up in the Capital City worshipping God and visiting with His people. (Revelation 21)


The text Scripture above reveals that one of the many seas in Heaven actually sits somewhere out in front of God’s Throne.  


Possibly God’s Capitol Building, where His Throne is located, sits right on the shore of that “Sea of Glass.” 


It has been reported by those who have been granted Divine visions and revelations of Heaven that many actually arrive at their new homes in Heaven on some sort of sea-going vessels upon this Sea of Glass. (2Corinthians 12:1)  Those who’ve experienced this report that standing on its shore they actually witnessed loved ones arriving in this manner. 


I see no Scriptural basis for doubting this revelation, which has been Divinely granted to some very reputable Christian people.  After all, things in Heaven are identical to things on Earth, minus the curse allowed by Adam. (Genesis 3; Romans 1:20; Hebrews 9:23)  


Considering the fact that Heaven is also a Planet orbiting in space as other planets are, it’s only reasonable that the Planet Heaven would have seas and beaches. (Psalm 19:6; Job 22:14)


So, we see clearly from Scripture that Heaven encompasses many seas and beaches.  They will be there for sure, but will you be there as well?  


Will you experience Eternal Life on Heaven’s beaches because you made Jesus Christ your personal “Life Guard” and Savior while back on planet Earth?  


Jesus has conquered death and is offering you Eternal Life through His Word.  You are reading that Word with your eyes right now. 


“… Jesus Christ … hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:” (2 Timothy 1:10)


God is a good God and does not hold any of us responsible for things we do not know.  However, today He has told you about His Son, Jesus.  He is offering you Eternal Life through Him and will hold you accountable for what you have read here today.  


Will you accept this Revelation of Jesus or will you reject it?  Don’t put it off until later.  Later might not come.  


The Bible says that death could come suddenly and you’ll have missed your final chance. (James 4:14) 


If you believe what you’ve just read, simply say, “Jesus, You’re my choice.”  (Romans 10:13)  


That’s all it takes to experience Life – Eternal Life on Heaven’s Beaches.  When you spot me on the beach, come up to me and let me know you made it!


Be Blessed … John and Barbara Hamel
