Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying,”Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. (Gen. 14:18-19)Read More
Our reward when we get to heaven is to rule and reign. My question is, to rule and reign what? Satan is vanquished. The only people there are ones that “passed the test”and received the reward of heaven. Its not like they need someone to keep them from robbing banks or stealing the asphalt. I myself would not be comfortable ruling over Christians or setting myself above them in any way. What am I missing here?
Sometimes before I go to sleep at night, I imagine a God who is absolutely fair and loving to all his creation equally,with no hint of hatred, or jealousy, condemnation, etc. The kind of God who truly loves his creation, and sees to it that we have the best of what life has to offer, and that it happens every day, forever. I imagine a God who created everyone equally with one language and one tone of skin, where every man and woman is beautiful with no flaws, whether physical, mental, or emotional. I dream that God would appear to me in person and honestly show himself to me (in real life,not by faith) and offer to take me to be in His awesome world with Him. Believe me, I would gladly depart from this world to start a new life of inexpressible joy in His world. Is it a sin to fantasize like this?
The Bible refers to Satan as being an angel of light in 2 Corinthians 11:14-15. And in my Nelson’s Student Bible Dictionary it refers to Lucifer as Morning Star and I believe Jesus has been referred to as the Day Star. This is all a bit confusing. First are there Angels of Light that are Angels of God and are good and still exist? and second, is Satan also the Morning Star and is Jesus the Day Star?
