Rev. 21:1, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."
 
Rev. 21:2, 10 The New Jerusalem comes out "from" heaven, but is not heaven itself.

What are the characteristics of heaven? 

Heaven is a high place.
 
Isa. 57:15, "I dwell in the high and holy place."
 
Heaven is a holy place.
 
Psa. 20:6, “He will hear him from His holy heaven."
 
Heaven is a happy place.
 
Rev. 7:17, "God shall wipe away all tears."
 
Heaven is a place without death, tears, sorrow, crying or pain.
 
Rev. 21:4, ". . . and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
 
Heaven is a place without night or darkness.
 
Rev. 22:3-5, “. . . in addition, there shall be DO night there. . . neither light of the sun: for the Lord God giveth them light. . ."
 
Heaven is a place without hunger, thirst, excessive heat.
 
Rev. 7:16, “They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat." 

What does death mean for the Christian? 

II Corinthians 5:6-8 These verses teach that:
 
To be at HOME in the BODY is to be absent from the Lord.
 
To be ABSENT from the BODY is to be present with the Lord.
 
Philippians 1:23,24 If Paul Was To Die, He Would Be caught-up. When a Christian dies his soul is immediately transported into the presence of Christ while the body returns to the dust, awaiting its Resurrection.
 
Revelation 6:9-11
 
Should our blessed Lord's return not occur in your lifetime, and you go the way of all men, be assured — you will go home to be with the Lord!
 
Death is graduation to Glory.
 
The words of Psalm 23:4 will be a sweet reality: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

What is a Glorified Body?

I Corinthians 15:35-53 We shall receive our new, glorified body at the Rapture — the moment when our Lord shall come in the air and "catch up" Christians. 

What does a Glorified Body Look Like? 

The best way to answer that is to consider the Lord Jesus Christ after His resurrection and in His glorified body:
 
John 20:20 - Was recognizable.
 
John 20:27 - Was touchable.
 
Acts 1:3 — Was able to communicate.
 
John 20:19, Luke 24:31 - Was not physically restricted.
 
Luke 24:36-43 - Was able to eat. 

What will happen to the saved persons body at the moment of the Rapture? 

Philippians 3:21
 
I John 3:2

What will be missing in heaven? 

The Book of The Revelation Chapters 21 and 22 give us the most detailed description of our future home
 
There are some things which will not be found in Heaven:
 
No more Death Rev. 21:4
 
No more Sorrow Rev. 21:4
 
No more Crying Rev. 21:4
 
No more Pain Rev. 21:4

No more Sun or Moon Rev. 21:23

Revelation 7:15 and Revelation 22:3, 5 In Heaven, We Will SERVE GOD Continually.
 
Revelation 3:21 In Heaven, We Will FELLOWSHIP Continually.
