It’s all very simple. God Almighty wants every person on the earth to be in His family and live forever with Him in heaven.
In fact, every person on the earth was born to walk with God Almighty every day, in a very simple, natural and normal (and much more!) fellowship and existence with Him. Upon passing from this earth, that person will then spend eternity with God in the glorious realms of heaven, forever.
Yes, it’s simple- but it’s also a mystery that we as God’s children will spend eternity learning about.
God created the human being into His own image, a truth that is a wonderful, divine mystery that we likely will never fully understand- like, well, all of God’s divine, sacred truths. He is an awesome God, Amen!
His universe has been here for an eternal, ageless past. His is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory. We, as tiny, fragile, limited humans, should be in awe that we might have the opportunity to spend one second with God Almighty, let alone an eternity.
At some point in the billions of years that the world has been in existence- specifically about 6,000 years ago according to our very limited calendar- God Almighty created a being (Adam), the first member of God’s earthly family.
Everything was perfect. God and Adam had continual fellowship, with God’s glorious presence infilling and surrounding him. On the earth, Adam enjoyed the spectacular natural surroundings, a feast for his five senses, sight, sounds, aromas, feels and tastes, as well as the amazing animals God created, which God allowed Adam to name.
But, the enemy lurked on the earth, having been cast out of heaven after trying to exalt himself above God’s throne. It’s another mystery. In the ageless, eternal past, the Great God Almighty created millions and billions of angels. At or very near the very top of the Angelic hierarchy, He created the archangels: Lucifer, Michael and Gabriel. There are five divisions of angels: Archangels, Seraphim, Cherubim, Zoa (also called Living Creatures), and Ministering Angels.
According to Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28, Lucicer was one of if not the most anointed Archangels, a cherub who held three offices. But iniquity was found in him. He rebelled and was cast out of heaven, forced to live on the earth and doomed to an eternity in hell.
Rest assured. God knows the end from the beginning. He is in control. We may find out in heaven that God knew all along that his creation Adam would sin and that mankind would need a Savior.
At the appointed time, Jesus Christ came to the earth as a man, lived and died for the world, to redeem mankind.
Now, 2,000 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our generations live in the Age of Grace, with unprecedented opportunity to walk with God, receive salvation through Jesus, receive untold blessings, riches and miracles from the heart and throne of God, and so much more, an eternity will not be enough time to celebrate the glorious new divine life in Christ.
