Many believe that babies come from Heaven. At least, that’s what some tell their children when they ask.

Recently, a book came out that has hit the New York Times bestseller list: Heaven is for Real, by Todd Burpo, father of Colton, who is only eleven.

When interviewed by Wayne Shepherd, Todd shared of his son’s passing from this world and into the next because of a ruptured appendix. What he believes Colton saw when he left his body is incredible and really brings confirmation of God’s promises of what Heaven will be like. Because Colton shared things he never could have known, we have little reason to doubt the truth of this story.

Colton mentioned how young everyone was in Heaven and that everyone has wings. He said there were lots of people and animals everywhere. He mentioned meeting his great-grandfather and even a sister his mother had miscarried, something he had known nothing about.

The most wonderful thing Colton shared was having actually sat on Jesus’s lap. From there, he said he could see exactly what his parents were doing at the time he left, such as his father praying privately in another room.

After hearing all of this, how can you not get excited about Jesus? And life everlasting?

Scripture refers to Heaven as God’s dwelling place, that there we shall see Him. (Revelation 21, 22) Colton mentioned meeting Jesus.

He said Heaven was beautiful. Scripture confirms this, too. (Revelation 21)

Scripture has many descriptions of Heaven, so we can only imagine all that Colton saw and experienced.

Why this has come to light now is surely because God planned it that way, to encourage believers in their faith.

In these last days, we know that much devastation will fall upon the world, as foretold in Scripture. Places like Haiti, Japan, and Australia are good examples of this.

So it is possible God has given us this glimpse of Heaven to give us hope.

Hope for a future of life everlasting, if we would but seek Him…before it is too late.

“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” (Revelation 21:27 KJV)
