What is communication like in Heavenly realms? It is as though the veils are lifted from our minds and we are suddenly free to know, to see, to experience more than we ever thought possible. The noise within us is finally stilled so that we can hear God’s voice … His thoughts.
Communication in Heaven is often by thought. It is instant and much faster than by word. Words are also used and there are many different languages that we knew on earth but everyone understands them all. Each word is so alive with wisdom and knowledge that they are like doorways leading to another realm of understanding our mortal minds have never known. “What I know now is only partial; then it will be complete – as complete as God’s knowledge of me.” 1 Cor. 13:12 GNB
In a vision, my husband once found himself in a library in Heaven. As he passed the rows of lovely volumes, the knowledge they contained came flowing out of the covers to him! He found it very difficult to keep walking to his destination because every time he looked at one of the books he not only knew what was in it, but it was downloading knowledge to him at a glance. Such is the nature of wisdom and revelation in that realm. It is given freely. There is nothing there to interfere with God’s original plan for man.
Everyone in Heaven knows all there is to know about everyone else, yet still they love with the Father’s love. Those who have been forgiven much, love much. (Luke 7:47) There is no hiding but only complete acceptance and freedom.
There is no need for a cell phone, the internet or any of the technology that we know and depend on now. Some people’s idea of Heaven is that it might be a place similar to this earth but with greatly superior technology. But Heaven is a supernatural realm which so far exceeds the highest form of technology that there is no comparison. When knowledge is needed, it is immediately given. Often you know the answer as soon as you ask the question. There is no sin there to hinder the flow of the Holy Spirit. Your spirit is fully open to Him. This also implies that the less sin there is in us now, the more knowledge and wisdom can flow to us by the Spirit.
In one of my experiences in Heaven, Jesus and I were sitting on a bench in the lovely gardens. On this day He began to address issues in my heart that needed to change, but still the love in His eyes did not diminish. There was no hint of condemnation. There was only such deep love that His whole focus was on me.
“How can We help you solve this problem?” He asked sincerely. “What would be helpful?”
Once again I was humbled to see that His purpose is always redemptive. It is the enemy who condemns, never the Lord. (Rom.8:1) God’s goal is always to restore us to the intimacy that He enjoyed with Adam and even to build on that foundation.
Returning my thoughts to the problem at hand, I realized I had failed the same test many times. I began to wonder if it would be beneficial to ask for private angelic tutoring. I seemed to have forgotten for the moment that in Heaven whatever one desires is instantly granted, because those desires are in agreement with the Father’s will.
Suddenly there was an angel on the bench beside me where the Lord had been. Immediately I realized that this beautiful creature had already been briefed on the situation, or was invisibly there all along. Now she entered into the middle of the conversation which I had assumed was only between the Lord and myself.
“Well,” she mused, gesturing around her, “Here in Heaven there is nothing to distract or cause annoyance or frustration.”
There is a sense in which the angels who live in that glorious realm cannot fully understand what we endure on earth. But they are also amazed many times at our lack of ability to appropriate what Christ has made available to us at so high a cost. She was so pure and gentle that there was no possibility of being offended by her words. Still, her parting statement pierced my heart and brought me to tears.
Looking into my eyes, she gazed deeply into my spirit as if searching for something.
“However,” she smiled thoughtfully, continuing her former conversation, “You do have your Father’s nature. That should help!”
