Humans were born to fellowship with God, forever.
Those who are saved and make it to heaven will fellowship with Him, forever.
Jesus says: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20).
We know God through His Son Jesus.
The deepest reality of knowing Him is fellowship with Him.
God is eternity.
He is life (John 1, John 14:6).
He is existence.
He is love (1 John 4:8).
He is holy.
And infinitely, eternally more.
He has revealed Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
His Son Jesus Christ is the revelation of God (John 1).
He is the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15).
He is the exact representation of God’s nature (Hebrews 1:3).
He is Son of God and . . . the Lord God Almighty (Matthew 3:17, John 8:58).
God wants every person to find eternal life.
Jesus died for the world (John 3:16). God is not willing that any perish but that all come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). He desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4).
Every child under the age of about five, who dies, goes directly to heaven, where they will live forever. People who have visited heaven confirm this truth.
The truth that God gave His Son Jesus to the world reveals God’s love for the world and His eternal compassion for all people.
Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
Jesus answered, “If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God. 55 Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word.56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:54-58).
