Where could heaven be?

Where could heaven be?

In Job 37:22 (NIV), we read, "Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty."

Is there anything on Earth that points to heaven? Are there any earthly biblical signs that point where heaven could be?

For centuries, the sextant, by pointing to the North Star, has been used to guide sailors to a safe harbor. The Gospel of St. John, in the Bible, points us to Jesus and heaven as the safe harbor for each one of us.

Job 26:7 (NIV): "He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing."

Isaiah 14:12-13 (KJV): "How are thou fallen from heaven, 0 Lucifer, son of the morning! ... For thou has said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north;"

Psalms 48:2 (KJV): "Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, the city of the great King."

Heaven is the place where the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit dwell.

In the book "Heaven is for Real," a boy by the name of Colton Burpo almost died during his appendectomy. He was nearly 4, and according to his account, he went to heaven and saw the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

Only believe and receive Jesus.
