People who believe in Christ frequently hope to reach Heaven one day. According to Scripture, Heaven is indeed an actual physical location where God resides – its existence described extensively in the book of Revelation.
Scripture refers to God as eternal and everlasting; these terms make perfect logical sense when applied to Him.

God is Eternal
God is timeless by nature; therefore the Bible refers to him as eternal (Isaiah 40:28 and Revelation 1:8) and tells us heaven will be his dwelling place where believers will spend eternity (John 3:16 and 21:3). God being eternal also helps explain why Scripture attributes so many other qualities to him such as righteousness and faithfulness (Prov 21:30-31).
As an illustration, it would be impossible for a timeless God to know everything that happens now or in the past because these events took place over time and will repeat themselves. But because He exists outside time, He knows everything at once.
Importantly, time should not be used as a way of discussing God, as evidenced by Hebrews 1:1-4 in the Bible. Hebrew writers used “yom” – their term for time – to refer to periods of days or years past or future; hence comparing asking how old God is in heaven with asking what temperature it is outside would be similar as these two concepts don’t belong together.
As is often the case, asking “How long has this gravel been dead?” is an attempt at categorization error; gravel doesn’t have any type of age to attribute. We could ask similarly with “How old is God in heaven?,” since by attributing qualities He does not possess to Him we’re categorizing Him incorrectly.
God is eternal, which provides an explanation for why he knows everything that will occur and does not forget any detail; similarly, his all-powerful and all-knowing nature also clarifies why young and unborn will one day join Him in Heaven (Matthew 6:25; John 3:16) – assuaging grief of grieving parents knowing their loved ones will eventually reunited there.
God is Almighty
The Bible references God as Almighty, Omnipotent or Alpha and Omega; all phrases which connote that He exists without beginning or end. God is Eternal meaning He has always existed and will continue to exist forevermore.
“How old is God?” is impossible to answer since He does not possess an age! Since He does not resemble us humans in any way, He cannot have a birth or death date either.
However, according to the Bible, God resides in heaven as his place of rest since ascending shortly after Jesus Christ’s resurrection from earthly existence. Furthermore, there are myriads of angels serving Him atop Heaven.
Biblical doctrine holds that Jesus is both the Son and Image of the Invisible One. Before His physical incarnation on Earth, all creation was made through Him and through Him (Colossians 1:15-17).
It teaches that righteous individuals who have passed will be resurrected and united with their loved ones in heaven, as well as teaching that very young and unborn will also join these numbers there.
No biblical details exist about what happens after death to those who do wrong, but many believe they will be punished forever in hell. Many find it hard to imagine an all-loving God punishing people forever with pain. Due to this difficulty in conceptualizing such punishment, other explanations for afterlife phenomena such as suffering here being rewarded in heaven while good behavior punished in hell have developed as alternatives.
No matter if they will be punished or revived, it’s essential that we remember God is Lord over heaven and earth and worship Him as much as we can! Let’s all give praise and thanksgiving Him for everything He does – may we always recognize and appreciate his greatness.
God is Good
The Bible proclaims God to be good and has always desired what’s best for his creation, which includes us. One way He demonstrates this goodness is when someone accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior and receives His Holy Spirit, He begins working within them to change them from within – an extraordinary thing! Just one way God demonstrates his goodness!
God also shows His goodness by providing mankind with His righteous law, serving as a guideline for living a life that pleases Him and helps to fulfill His plans for this world. For this reason, the Bible proclaims, “Teach me Your statutes; for I desire to walk in Your ways” (Psalm 119:68).
God shows His goodness not only through law but also by bestowing gifts upon humanity. For instance, rain falls equally across all countries regardless of who deserves it, which serves as an indicator of His love and compassion for humanity. Furthermore, He shows His goodness by forgiving sins and offering eternal life to those who accept Him.
These examples demonstrate just some of the many ways God is good, but these stand out. Additionally, heaven can only be described as a place full of happiness and joy according to Scripture – according to Revelation 14:7 “And the angels rejoiced at the coming of the Lord and his glory; and they sang his praises” (reference).
Finally, we know God to be good because He created everything around us – He exists outside time that He created for Himself and has all-knowing power over every event and person on the planet. Furthermore, He treats everyone fairly without discrimination against any individuals or groups of people.
As evidenced in Scripture, heaven is an amazing place. And if Jesus has become your Lord and Savior, you’ll get to experience it for yourself once life ends! Be sure to share these quotes and verses about God being Good with friends and family so they are reminded how amazing our Lord truly is!
God is Love
God transcends human understanding when it comes to love. He exemplified selfless love through sacrifice of His only son for our eternal happiness; verses from Scripture illustrate His boundless, unconditional, and never-ending affection – His presence can always be felt when we’re at our lowest or feel all alone; whether this means taking out trash for someone when they’re busy, helping fix our car when it breaks down, healing sick children or simply showing up when needed most.
God loves not only us, but all living beings in the universe. He cares deeply for each individual and creature on earth and hopes that they return His love. In fact, He created this world so we could share in it. So much did He care for it that He gave His one and only Son Jesus Christ on the cross to save humanity from sin and death (John 3:16) – when we accept his gift, Heaven awaits where we can spend eternity living happily ever after in His joyful presence!
Ezekiel 28:11-19 and Revelation 12:7-9 in the Bible describe events in heaven prior to earth being formed, often misinterpreted as references to an imagined war between Satan and angels who rebelled against Him, such as Satan himself. But it’s important to keep in mind that God is love and anyone who doesn’t share this sentiment does not truly know Him.
“How Old Is God In Heaven?” is an attempt at categorizing Him by time alone; He does not possess any characteristics associated with ageing, such as physical change over time or dying over time. Therefore, to ask about His age is tantamount to asking “How Long Has This Gravel Been Dead?,” as its answer no longer pertains since it never lived before!
