What a God our God is! . His divine will for us is so we can recieve eternal life. In the scriptures it tells us of a new heaven and new earth. The heavens now will be folded up and disappear at his second coming. The Lord Jesus Christ came to do the Fathers will so that we can live and reign forever with him in the new Jerusalem on the new earth. There he said would be streets of Gold and instead of the names of the movie stars in Hollywood there the names of the apostles will be. When I read the scriptures and meditate about enternal life. The Lord teaches me in the spirit to understand the life of my heart will is very young and that I have confidence that I will always live as Gods child forever. The Lord speaks of in his scriptures our bodies we have now have been crucified with christ the life of our flesh is no longer our life. Life as we know it is in the spirit of Jesus Christ. We have become as seeds of Abraham and kin of Elisha. I read the revelations of 7 columbian youths and for days I was in the spirit myself seeking God to understand the testimony of these youths. It was astonishing how well they described heaven . I having never been to heaven have only spiritual awareness of the Lord's kingdom and the grace he bestowed to me was in the spirit as I sought the Lord each day he teaches me that he his creator and king and he teaches me as his brother and his friend. Although I was not his brother such as James the apostle or a decendant of David I am confident my baptism in the spirit of truth gave me a new life as the brother of Jesus Christ joint heir to the kingdom of heaven as his own kind and kin as a child of God. Read the reveleations below of heaven and hell of these columbian youths they are astounding.
When we think of living forever we some times forget that there is another eternity for those who didnt believe that Jesus is the savior God incarnate. They don't believe Christ died for their sins or didnt love Christ enough that they would stop living as hypocrites , adulterers, fornicators , falt finders, drunkards, liars, swindlers,homosexuals. When I think of hell I think of eternal torment and the actual burning for not 1 year or two years but trillions upon trillions of years undending trillions of years. There will be no end to the duration of the punishment. That is how serious it is that we Love God and remain his allie his children and believe and fear the living God. We have to believe in Jesus Christ to even know God. Fearing God isnt enough we have to actually abide in his son Jesus Christ as the church of the Son of God. Only those God knows will be given eternal life.
We all have experience people who torment us. Think what its going to be like for these people. They learned to torment us from the devil. He knows he will live in eternal damnation burning in a lake of fire. So he taught these people who torment us on our jobs or in our neighborhoods. He devoured them up they are in the dark and only can do the works of Satan. They only know what torment is. Satan the destroyer torments them in their sleep and in their hearts. They can't even life here in this life with peace and love in thier hearts. Until they live and reign with Christ and recieve eternal life. They will know only sin and death and the love for this world and the lusts of the flesh. They have to die to thier own lifes of darkness and sin to live as a child of God. Know one has to be perfect but we all have to have sincere faith in the son of the living God. These people who torment us will live in eternal torment and burning in a lake of fire for longer than time can be calculated on a calculator.

And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell.
"There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man's table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he called out, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.' But Abraham said, 'Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.'
They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might,
—2 Thessalonians 1:9
And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them, and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
