Jesus Himself described heaven as paradise when speaking to the thief on the cross; “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43). He also assures us in this verse that upon our death we are immediately in the presence of God. The original word for heaven means “high or lofty”, or “that which is above”, which designates where heaven is located. In heaven, there will be no more pain, suffering or tears for God will make all things new; “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4). The Book of Revelation has many descriptions of heaven; including the throne room in Revelation 4, “… and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald” (Revelation 4:2-3); Jesus at the throne in Revelation 5:2-7 and the angels worship of God in Revelation 5:8-14. Following the final judgment, the Great White Throne Judgment, there will be a new heaven and new earth, as the current heaven and earth are destroyed by fire (Revelation 21, 2 Peter 3:10-13). Also described is the New Jerusalem, the final dwelling place that Christ has prepared for us in which we have personal, intimate fellowship with Him throughout eternity. The main point is that heaven is the place where we will live in the immediate presence of God eternally.
