The blessed hope

(m a kar i a n e l p i s a)

That Jesus Christ will come again and take us (Christians) from the earth and to heaven clothed with immortality. And those (Christians) who are dead will rise likewise with immortal bodies and go to heaven with us where we will not sin anymore. (see Titus 2:13)

 

Verses to live wisely by

"Dead flies putrefy the perfumer's ointment and cause it to off a foul odor; so does a little folly to one respected for wisdom and honor." (Ecclesiastes 10:1) 

"Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people's sins; keep yourself pure." (I Timothy 5:22)

"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them." (Ephesians 5:11)

"Abstain from every form of evil." (I Thessalonians 5:22)  

A definition of angels

Angels are spiritual, incorporable, rational, moral and immortal beings. In distinction of God they are created beings. Their purpose (since sin entered the world) is to minister to those who are heirs of salvation and to be be a messenger of God (mediate the special revelations of God, communicate blessings to His people, execute judgement upon His enemies).

A definition of God (taken from the 1689 Baptist Confession, Chap. 2 P. 1, 2)

There is but one, and only one, living and true God. He is self-existent and infinite in His being and His perfections. None but he can comprehend or understand His essence. He is a pure spirit, invisible without body, parts, or the changeable feelings of men. He alone possesses immortality, and dwells amid the light insufferably bright to mortal men. He never changes. He is Great beyond all our conceptions, eternal , incomprehensible, almighty and infinite. He is most holy, wise, free and absolute. All that He does is the out-working of His changeless, righteous will, and for His own glory. He is most loving, gracious, merciful and compassionate. He abounds in goodness and truth. He forgives iniquity, transgression and sin. He rewards those who seek him diligently. But He hates sin. He will not overlook guilt or spare the guilty, and he is perfectly just in executings judgment.

God is all-sufficient, and all life, glory, goodness and blessedness are found in Him and Him alone. He does not stand in need of any of the creatures that He has made, nor does He derive any part of His glory from them. On the contrary, He manifests His own glory in and by them. He is the fountain-head of all being, and the origin, channel and end of all things. Over all His creatures He is sovereign. He uses them as he pleases, and does for them or to them all that He wills. His sight penetrates to the heart of all things. His knowledge is infinite and infallible. No single is to Him at risk or uncertain, for He is not dependent upon created things. In all His decisions, doings and demands He is most holy. Angels and men owe to Him as their creator all worship, service and obedience, and whatever else He may require at their hands.
