Ezekiel prophesied, "The name of the city from that day shall be, 'The LORD is there.'" (Eze 48:35b)
There in that city the greatest joy and delight of the saints is that God Himself is with them; that the One who sits upon the throne shall dwell among them. The most wonderful aspect of that city is that the Lord is there.
“And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them.’” (Rev 21:3)
Let us earnestly seek the Lord to do whatever it takes in us to ensure that we are fit for heaven and have a place in that city, so that we may be with Him forever.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
