My views: An event happened in Heaven which shook heaven its core. It was unthinkable and mind blogging: Revelation 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
After every war there is an aftermath. God decide to do something that was as mind blogging as the war: Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
God went even further: Genesis 1:26-27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
God is not a God chance He does everything for a purpose: Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
God had a purpose for His new creation.
Similarities between God’s angels and first Adam: Both were created sinless, both knew God was the Father (no parents). Both fellowshipped with God face to face. Both were divine beings even though Adam and Eve were naked.
Differences: Man was create on earth never experience heaven (planted on earth). Man committed sin and became flesh. Fallen angels were cast out of heaven became demonic spirits, hell became their kingdom.
Under the Old Testament covenant, man could return to heaven for eternity. (unfortunately man was unfaithful)
Under the New Testament covenant, man can only have eternity through the blood of Christ (cross)
The fallen angels can never return to heaven: Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
While sinful man can if they believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah: Acts 15:11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.
The purpose of man was OBEDIENCE to God’s Word to which unfortunately Adam and Eve failed but today, sinful man can still have eternity, through God’s Grace by Jesus Christ
For a sinner there’s only one sin that covers all sin that will separate them from God: John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life: UNBELIEF
For a Born Again believer, there’s one sin that will keep you out of heaven: 1 Samuel 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice………………. OBEDIENCE
