How do we know if heaven is a real place?

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:1-4

If someone I trusted came back from Antarctica and told me all about it, I would believe Antarctica was a real place. If Jesus tells me there is a heaven, then why would I question him as a source?

Since you have to be dead to see heaven, there is no way to prove it until you die.

Many stories have been written people who died, claimed to see heaven, then returned to life. While they may be true, the stories are so different, that it’s hard to tell whether they were post-trauma thoughts or brain activity or wishful thinking.

Only your trust of Jesus and other references found in the Bible can verify if heaven is real place.
