Heaven is the place where the creator of the universe lives. Even though it could also refer to the realms of the worlds, this article will focus on the realm where the angels live, for that is the same realm that God lives in. We live in this world today to die tomorrow. Once dead, our souls will head to one of these eternal destinations, heaven or hell.
What is a mansion? Oxford dictionary defines a mansion as a large, impressive house. It also defines it as a large block of flats. These definitions are earthly thus inaccurate because earthly words do not have the capacity to define spiritual things as they really are. Nevertheless, we can use these definitions for this article.
The secret to knowing the colour of your mansion in heaven is an open secret, for the answer is in you. God will not do things as if He’s dealing with robots. Because He created us and knows us inside-out, he tailors things according to our needs and desires. Even though inhabitants of heaven walk on gold, every mansion in heaven still has a gold colour by default. In addition to the gold colour will be your favourite colour on earth.
For example, if red is your favourite colour on earth, your mansion in heaven will be Red-Gold colour. In other words, the radiance of your mansion in heaven will be a blend of red and gold. If green is your favourite colour on earth, the sparkle of your mansion in heaven will be a mixture of green and gold. If black is your favourite colour on earth, the glow of your mansion in heaven will be a merger of black and gold. This is the reason why Heaven will be extremely colourful because we all have different opinions on what our favourite colour is.
What about those of who do not know what their favourite colour is? I said earlier in this article that God knows us in-and-out because He created us, formed us and moulded us into who we are today; therefore, He knows in advance what your favourite colour is and will ensure that the vivacity of your mansion in heaven will be a balance of your favourite colour and gold.
So even though most of us have not been to heaven before, it is possible to foresee the colour of the sort of mansion put in place for us in Heaven. Once you die in the Lord, you will live in that mansion forever and ever and ever. But once you die in the devil, you will miss it and live in a fiery pit forever and ever and ever.
Heaven being God’s abode, the sacrifice that Jesus paid has ushered us into privileges that did not exist at first. Before Jesus’ death, nobody died and went to Heaven. Those that died righteously rested in the upper right side of hades (Abraham’s bosom) while those that died sinfully were tortured in the lower side of hades.
But now that the ultimate price has been paid, anybody who dies in the Lord will surely make it to Heaven. Can any earthly word describe how heaven looks like? Are there earthly vocabularies to paint the real picture of heaven unto us? Absolutely no.
In heaven, we won’t live in the open or on the fields; even if we had to live on the heavenly fields, the sort of joy from that will be beyond any joy and peace found on this earth. However, we will live in mansions. My favourite colour is yellow. I can't imagine how glittering a yellow colour mixed with a gold colour will be like.
If different houses with different colours look so beautiful on earth, can you imagine how different colours merged with a gold colour in a perfect environment will be like? Heaven is Real indeed.
