Jesus Christ is Lord.
He is the Son of God and the Lord God Almighty.
Those who know Him have eternal life, which is knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent (John 17:3).
They believe in Him through His Son Jesus. They also believe in the name of Jesus Christ.
If they continue on with Jesus, they will live forever.
Outside of Jesus, there is nothing.
Apart from Jesus, someone can do nothing.
Without Jesus, someone has nothing. Even if they gain the whole world, they possess nothing.
Without Jesus, a person is spiritually dead. If they die without Jesus Christ, they go to eternal death.
Eternal life continues forever in heaven, a place of absolute glory.
Heaven is God’s home, full of the glorious splendor of His majesty and infinitely more.
Those who know Jesus as Lord have the divine nature and life of God.
They have the supernatural, abundant, zoe life.
They have the Almighty God living in and through them – and all around them.
Those who know Jesus can accomplish things that will last forever. They can store up treasures in heaven, They can do even greater things than Jesus did.
Eternal death continues forever in hell, the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
The Angelic Beings
The Five Divisions of the Heavenly Host
Angels are mighty, glorious, fearsome beings who carry the glory of God with them. We see in the Bible that when allowed to see angels, humans are often very afraid and even fall down as though dead (see Luke 1:13, 1:30, 2:10, Revelation 1:17). The angels have to calm them down, “Do not be afraid . . .” There are literally millions upon millions of angels and five classifications of angels.
All angels are connected to God’s glory and carry His glory with them. They were created in heaven and are spirit beings; God’s spirit forms their being.
Before the earth was created, angels were already in existence. In Job we read:
“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. 5 Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? 6 To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, 7 When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy? Job 38:4-7
There are more than 300 references to angels in the Bible.
No one knows how many angels there are. In Revelation 5:11, John saw so many angels he could not count them, with his estimate being “100 million, and thousands upon thousands.”
