Great Heavenly Joy

  1. Hebrew 12:22 is a description of heaven now and those who live in God’s city.
  2. Next, our third “to” are the thousands and thousands of angels. Let’s read it. Some say it is 10,000 times 10,000s of holy angels who live in heaven. We are greeted by these holy angels.
  3. The angels are in joyful assembly – celebrating. What are they celebrating? Jesus said, “There is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Repentance brings great joy in heaven. Human beings are being converted and baptized around the world.
  4. It’s like an ongoing feast in heaven. Cheering, laughter, music, singing, and dancing over sinners repenting. There is one giant angelic party in heaven.
  Notice Luke 10:20-21. Why was Jesus full of joy? These disciples were children of God. The angels, Jesus, the Father, and the Holy Spirit are full of joy over those who would be born again.
