“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!” (Deuteronomy 6:4, Mark 12:29).
The Lord is one.
He is the only true God.
He has revealed Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Father and Jesus Christ are in heaven.
The Holy Spirit fills heaven and is over and throughout all the earth.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Father, the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
What is God like?
He is the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe.
You are eternal.
You will exist for eternity.
Why? Because God made man into His own image and likeness (Genesis 1:27, 2:7).
God is eternity. He is of course eternal. Therefore, man is eternal.
Eternal Life and Eternal Death
Those who know Jesus have eternal life. If they continue on with Him, they will live forever in heaven, God’s home, a place of absolute glory.
Those who do not know Jesus Christ are spiritually dead. When they die, they will spend eternity in hell, the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
The Choice: God or Self
God has given every person a choice. The choice is between God and self.
This choice determines a person’s eternal destiny: heaven or hell.
God has given man a free will, because He made us into His image and likeness.
The first person God created was given the choice. The two trees mentioned specifically in Genesis represented the choice between God and self.
Choosing God results in eternal life. Choosing self results in eternal death.
Tragically, most of the 108 billion-plus people throughout history have chosen self. Those who choose self miss heaven.
