Eternal Life is by faith in Christ. "Even so must the Son of Man be lifted up that whosoever believes into Him might not perish but have eternal Life?

Eternal Life is to be regenerated through faith in Christ. To recive the Eternal Life of God in Christ.

John says, "this is the record, God has given us eternal Life, this Life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the Life. He who does not have the Son of God does not have the Life"

If we are born of God we have Eternal Life. We are not waiting for it. We have it. We have the very Eternal Life of God indwelling us in our spirit. We are regenerated with His Life and therefore are Children of God with His Life and His Nature and as such we will never perish.

But as to the reward of the Kingdom it is full of conditions. It is conditional upon our faithfulness, our growth in Life, and our suffering with Him that we might be glorified with Him.

This is contrary to our traditional concepts but it is the plain and clear revealtion of the Word of God and the early church held these things distincly and clearly.

no....As we are now we will be in heaven. As we are now is how we wanted to be in heaven. We will see our spiritual poverty in heaven. We will get to heaven and look around and begin to realize how much of earth we lived for...



I am not sure where we get this idea of heaven. According to the Bible, our destination is not heaven but the New Jerusalem in the New Earth which comes down out of heaven (Rev. 21).

And in between this eternal age there is the age of the Kingdom for 1000 years.

We have a very shallow and simplistic view of things. We think heaven and hell but the bible presents a much deeper and broader picture.
