It is both simple and an eternal mystery – and infinitely more.
God is the perfect God and Father.
He loves the world so much, that gave His only Son to die for the world, to save mankind.
He gave everything to His Son Jesus Christ and exalted Him to be equal with Himself.
Jesus said, “All things have been delivered to/entrusted to Me by My Father” (Mathew 11:27). Jesus said, “All things that the Father has are mine” (John 16:15a).
Jesus is the perfect Son. He gave Himself to the world to save mankind. He came to earth and suffered and died for the life of the world.
Jesus has given everything to His people, the church, the saints (John 17:22 & more).
When someone goes to God the Father, He points to Jesus, who said: “’I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6).
Jesus said: “. . . that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father” (John 5:23).
When someone goes to Jesus, He says, “’I and My Father are one’” (John 10:30).
And Jesus points to the Father and says, “My Father . . . is greater than all” and “My Father is greater than I” (John 10:29, John 14:28).
The only true God is an eternal revelation.
Those who find Him and make it to heaven will be in awe of Him, for eternity.
Eternal Life: Knowing Him
Jesus offers eternal, everlasting life.
What is eternal life?
Jesus said, “’And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent’” (John 17:3).
For all eternity, those in heaven will be in awe of the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
The only true God is so glorious and wonderful, He is beyond human words.
Jesus said, “The Age to Come, Eternal Life”
Jesus revealed that eternal life is also “the age to come” (Mark 10:30).
“So Jesus answered and said, ’Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time – houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions – and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first’” (Mark 10:29-30).
God is Eternal
It is glorious that when someone knows Jesus as Lord and Savior, they are actually in “the age to come.”
Though still on the earth and in a human body, they have the opportunity to experience and partake of eternity. How is this possible?
God is eternal. In fact, eternity exists in Him – both eternity past and eternity future.
He is so giving and gracious, that when someone sincerely receives Jesus as Lord and Savior, they are immediately in “eternal life, the age to come.” They begin the eternal journey of knowing God.
Christianity is a revelation received through a relationship with Him.
Every Person Will Exist for Eternity
Every person is an eternal being.
God made man into His own image and likeness.
I write the following with great reverence: man is the image of God.
God is eternal. Man is eternal.
God is a trinity. Man is a trinity.
Because man is made in God’s image, he has the opportunity to know God – and infinitely, eternally more!
Those who know Jesus as Lord and Savior have eternal life and all it contains.
However, those apart from Jesus Christ are spiritually dead. When they die physically, they go to eternal death.
When someone finds Jesus as Lord and Savior, they instantly move from eternal death to eternal life.
The New Life in Jesus
The glorious new life in Jesus Christ is an eternal revelation of God.
As the New Testament reveals, believers are to continue on in this most holy faith our entire time on earth and for eternity.
In eternity, saints will continue: growing, worshipping, praying, ministering, learning, serving, knowing God . . . and infinitely, eternally more.
The New Life is Beyond Words
The new life in Jesus is so glorious, it cannot be expressed in human words.
The entire New Testament is an attempt to put it into words.
Why can it not be expressed? Because God is so glorious and wonderful, He is beyond words.
How Do We Meet the Real God?
Perhaps the most important key to knowing God is meeting and knowing the Holy Spirit. He is God!
We get to go directly to Him. What a privilege it is to go directly to Him!
He is the Spirit of the Father and the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
Knowing Him is the greatest privilege a human can experience.
The following is an example of how awesome our God is.
The only true God sits on the highest throne in the universe.
Around and above the throne, angels continually cry out: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come” . . . Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”
They continually see new revelations of the Lord God Almighty.
We do not know how long the angels have been at the throne.
The earth is estimated to be more than 4.5 billion years old.
We do not know how long the angels have existed.
Nevertheless, the angels are continually seeing new revelations of the only true God. And they cry “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come” (Revelation 4:8) . . . “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!” (Isaiah 6:3).
Jesus: an Eternal Revelation
Jesus Christ is God and the Son of God
Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty.
And, Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
And, He is infinitely, eternally more. Amen!
The following is impossible to put into human words, but it is an attempt:
The revelation of the only true God, the great God Jehovah, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is certainly the most important revelation in the universe.
Within that revelation, the revelation of Jesus is also the most important revelation in the universe.
A person’s eternal destiny depends on their response to the only true God’s offer of Himself through Jesus Christ.
God has offered the Lord Jesus to every person. It is the greatest and only offer to mankind.
God wants to save all people. He wants everyone to spend eternity with Him in heaven (2 Peter 3:9 & many others).
The tragedy is that most people will not find Jesus as Lord and Savior.
If anyone says no to Jesus, God cannot do anything more for them.
God has done everything He can do to save mankind.
He sent His only Son to the earth to die for the world!
Jesus rose from the dead and lives forevermore.
God sent the Holy Spirit to the earth.
Jesus – the Lord God Almighty – is available to every person, all the time, everywhere they go, for all eternity!
What else could God do for mankind?
How Can Jesus be Both God and the Son of God?
Who are we to question God?
One should never cross-question God Almighty.
We should honor and fear Him.
We should humble ourselves before Him.
We should be in awe of Him.
We should be in awe of His offer of Himself through Jesus!
Some object and say, “Jesus cannot be both God and the Son of God . . .” and “Jesus was a man but he cannot be God also . . .” and other similar objections.
Those who object are a son. Every person on earth has parents.
And they also may be a father – they might have a child or children.
So, which are they, a son or a father? They are both.
And, they are many others things, potentially a: brother, grandfather, friend, nephew, uncle, citizen (of a place), professional, student, hobbyist, and many other “titles.”
So it is with Jesus Christ. He has many, many names and titles.
How is it that man has numerous “titles?” Because God created man into His own image and likeness. God has many, many names, offices, titles and descriptions, and so it is with man.
God’s Plan for Humanity
God’s plan for humanity is so glorious, it is beyond words.
God’s magnificent offers to mankind are beyond human comprehension.
He has offered Himself, to every person, all the time, everywhere they go, for all eternity.
God’s Offer to Mankind
God’s offer to mankind is priceless, infinite and eternal. Why?
Because HE is priceless, infinite and eternal, and infinitely, eternally more!
For all eternity, man will be in awe of Him and His offer to mankind.
