We are Christians and we worship Jesus Christ. We all know about God and heaven. That is, we know who God is, what we are, and how to go to heaven. We are souls, and so, we are persons. God repeatedly says that he is not a respecter of persons; that is, God will not favor us for who we are, but he will reward us for what we do. Animals do not have souls. So, when they die, that will be the end of them. We have souls. So, even after our bodies die and become dust, our souls will continue to live. They will either go to heaven or to hell. I hope, you know God. Do you know your soul intimately, as you know your body? If you know your soul, have you made any plans for your soul to go to heaven and enjoy life there? If you do not have any plan, you may be going to hell and you will suffer punishment there for eternity. So, have a plan, do not ignore this.
The bible says that the only true God is the only omnipotent Spirit, who has been existing from the everlasting past, and who has created everything that is in existence. We see his creation; plants, birds, animals; even we are his creation. If we use common sense and good conscience, we will know God by looking at his creation. Romans 1:19, "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. (that is, God showed himself into their souls) 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, (for an example; light is invisible, yet we see all other things by light; so, we know there is light) being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" We see sun, moon, plants, animals, fruits; they are all created by God. These are seen by them, these are proof that God is real, and so, they have no excuse. Yet, ungodly people say that a big explosion has created all of them. "Psalm 14:1 says, The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God." So, they are all fools. God is real as his creation is real. How about angelic beings? Ezekiel 28:15 says: "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee." It is about Satan. God created him as an archangel, but when he committed sin at the garden of Eden by deceiving Eve, God has rejected him from being an angel. God has created the devils and demons also as angels. When they have committed sin by joining Satan, God has rejected them also from being angels, and cursed them; and so, they are now demons and devils.

What are we? Some people think that they are intelligent animals, and when they die, that will be the end of them. Then, they do not have to face any consequence for what they have done in life. It is the understanding of the ungodly smart alecks. God calls them fools. "Genesis 1:26 Let us make man in our image, ... 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." So, On the sixth day of creation, God created man and woman, they were Adam and Eve. They were souls only, and their souls were created in the same image of the souls of God. "Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made." The first series of creation was completed in six days, and God took rest on the seventh day. So, the souls are the man and woman. "7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground,... 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man." Then, after the sabbath day rest, God has created the bodies for Adam and Eve, and gave them to their souls to live in them. So, the real we, are the souls and we live in our bodies. But we recognize our bodies readily since our bodies are tangible to us. We learn about our souls from scripture, from our conscience, from our dreams, etc. God made our souls in the image of his own soul, and so, he requires us to be righteous and holy, as he is righteous and holy. If we do good, God will reward us; but if we do evil, God will punish us. So, realize that we are souls, and we will live after our bodies die. If we realize, then will pleased God in our present lives, and then we will receive heavenly rewards in the kingdom of God. Link for details: "About Soul."
God the Word became man Jesus. He was born as Jew and came to the servants of God. But they both rejected each other. Jesus called the priests, scribes, and pharisees, as hypocrites and sons of the devil. At present, they are similar to Christian leaders and preachers. Jesus Christ has rejected them. Then, he preached to common people, and 5000 followed him. Then, he sent seventy disciples to preach. Then, he chose twelve apostles. So, three groups of 5000, 70 and 12, followed him. This pattern continued; large, medium, and small groups. Bible says that children are many, servants, sons, and bride; these four groups will be in heaven. They will be respectively in paradise, temple in paradise, in new heaven, and in mount Zion in heaven. There will be different levels of punishments also in hell. However, it is important to know that we are souls, live in our bodies, and the eternal future of our souls will be judged by the omnipotent Spirit God, who is the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge us with no respect to who we are, but with what we have done. If we realize this truth, we will see the marvelous light. It is spiritual. Have you seen this light? If you have, you will strive to reach this light? Are you striving?
