Heavenly cheesecake

heavenlycheesecakeIt’s ironic that the Book about Heaven says scarcely anything about it. One meager chapter is about Heaven. From there, a smattering of verses. That is all. More than anything, the Book about Heaven is more about Earth than anything else. How to live on Earth in order to get to Heaven.

But what is Heaven like? The Bible says precious little. Your guess is as good as mine. Or maybe mine is better than yours. My guess is Cheesecake Factory cheesecake comes close to the delicacies we’ll enjoy there.

HeavenlywaveThere are those who try to make Heaven on Earth. Well, I don’t think we should treat this planet like a disposable rag. But there is a Heaven beyond the Heaven you experience here.

I’ve heard repeatedly theologians affirm there are no dogs in Heaven. After scouring the Bible for years, I can deny this categorically. Theologians might be the people who least understand Heaven of all of us. If you love dogs, I’m sure they’ll be there.

HeavenlycarThe funny thing about my Ford Escort (year? sometime after the invention of the printing press) is that I take it to a mechanic here in Santa Monica where only Porsches, Ferraris and BMWs go. Among all these exotic toys, my humble Flintstone vehicle.

No matter. In Heaven, I’ll have a cool car or two. Why not?

So what’s your version of Heaven? Because all except sin, Heaven will be all and much more than our wildest imaginations.

  1. I love cheesecake! A fun take on heaven but on a serious note you are right. No-one knows anything really, except that there will be no sin in heaven. For that alone, I shout: amen! Thanks for the smile. God bless.

  2. love this cake ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Looks very sinful ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. That cake does look haevenly, but it is only heaven for 1 minute until it is gone. Heaven for me is without material things, but feelings, friends, love, joy, contentment, happiness.
    I won’t be driving in heaven, but walking and loveing every step!

  5. I sure do believe dogs are in Heaven! I believe that every creature God has created on Earth is in Heaven and that every creature God has created that is not on Earth is in Heaven.

  6. Ever read the book, “The Wonder of Heaven” by Ron Rhodes? I highly recommend it – it’s Excellent! To be able to talk to these impressive biblical and other historical figures would be heaven to me.

    My job will be obsolete when I am in heaven, so that chocolate cheesecake with a cup of dark, rich caffeinated coffee sounds great to me! (Oh that and a stronger chin line ๐Ÿ™‚ ) We’ll do a lot of dancing in heaven too, won’t we? Gosh, how will we find the time to do all we want to do???? (That’s said facetiously of course) Blessings,

  8. And the best thing is you can eat all you want an not gain an ounce!

  9. I totally agree that heaven will be filled of things you love- which could make it a lot like Earth. But isn’t it greedy to want two cars in Heaven? Wouldn’t that make it almost definite that there will be sins in heaven- if it evens exists. If I wanted five mansions in Heaven it would seem much more greedy than two cars but if that greed is what made me happy then would it even be counted as a sin?

    I can’t get the story of the rich man out of my mind when I read this post. Jesus did in fact tell him that ‘it is easier for a camel to enter through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven’. If this is meant to teach you that you should leave your riches here for the riches of heaven, I find it almost hypocritical that you can be rich in heaven but not on Earth.

    It still blows my mind that no one specifies anything about Heaven in the bible and yet so many people believe in it- which is obviously wonderful and very faithful, call me Thomas, but I still find it hard to imagine that it can exist if science can’t back it up. I mean, where is it, and where do people get the faith to believe in it whole heartedly?

    I have never understood people who say that animals don’t go to Heaven. Surely, if it’s there, they will definitely be there, seeing ass they are as innocent as children.

    Anyway, this turned out way longer than I though it would- sorry. I haven’t have a religious rant for too long and I just let it all out! I hope this isn’t some long winded annoying teenager with trust issues kind of response to your post, but I’d love to hear your reply to this! xxx

  10. This post is spot-on about what I am thinking about today. I have been hoping to write a post about heaven; however, it may be more controversial than a piece of cake, no matter how yummy!
