Hillsong Worship - As It Is (In Heaven)

Hillsong Worship - As It Is (In Heaven)

Whether we like it or not, death is something that we will all experience. Death, as odd and ironic as it may seem, is a part of life. Generally, most people fear death, likely simply due to all the unknowns surrounding the conclusion of our time on earth. But thankfully, for those who confess with their mouths and believe in their hearts that Jesus Christ is Lord, it is not the end.

The lyrics to Hillsong Worship’s song “As it Is (In Heaven) are all about heaven, the eternal reward for those who believe in Christ. It also mentions that the earth is only a temporary spot for Christians and that heaven awaits. Three lines of the song’s second verse help to drive this point home perfectly. 

“Should I suffer long 
This is not my home
I know heaven waits for me.”

During our time on earth, we will experience struggles, hardships, failures and sickness. Later in the song, the beautiful lyrics point out this as well. The musicians remind their listeners that the earth is not a stopping point, but that a place much, much better awaits. However, until that time comes, the musicians sing that death will have no fear over them because of Christ.  

The musicians share their message with hundreds of people as they play in a concert setting, as the video shows. Throughout the entirety of the song, the audience can be heard singing right along to the lyrics. 

The song's awesome message can also be found in Paul’s letter to the Romans. In Romans 6:23, Paul writes, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

John 14:2 “In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.”
