Summary: The Devil, Lucifer, was cast out after he sinned in the Garden of Eden. Explanation: “Take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “ ‘You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden [...]
No where in the Bible is an angel identified as a female. The Bible does not give us much information about angelic life in heaven. It doesn’t tell us about angelic genders or even angelic names. In fact, when Jesus was talking to Nicodemus, Jesus refused to discuss heaven. John 3:12 (NLT), “if you don’t [...]
In Genesis 1:27, God said “Let us make man in our image…” God was talking to the Logos (Jesus’ name before he became a human) and the angelic family. God is the great architect of His plan and He used the Logos and the angels to help carry out the work of the natural creation. “...there is but one [...]
Does the Bible speak of levels in Heaven? Will all Christians (the devoted and the backsliders) receive the same reward in heaven?
First, flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 15:50), and therefore anyone who is in Heaven does not have a fleshly body (of the earth, earthy). They have celestial or spirit bodies. God, Jesus, and angels are spirit beings. John 4:24, “God is spirit.” 1 Peter 3:18, “Christ…having been put to [...]
There are five places where Michael is spoken of in the Bible. Daniel 10:13, “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.” Here Michael is recognized as [...]
The word angel basically means “messenger of God.” Angels are not composed of physical matter but are spirit beings created by God (Hebrews 1:14). They can materialize in human form when God permits or wills it so (Genesis 19). There are different orders or ranks of angels in heaven. Those that covered the throne in heaven were mighty [...]
The great judgment day of Christ will accomplish a glorious work of abolishing all evil, and bringing all beings in heaven and earth into subjection to God, that “He may be all in all.” (I Corinthians 15:28) The Christ – head and body- will be given the privilege of determining who will ultimately be found [...]
Angels are not necessarily holy nor unholy. The word angel in the Bible comes from the Hebrew word “mal’ak” or the Greek word “aggelos,” both meaning “messenger.” Angel can refer to human messengers such as in Matthew 11:7-10 which quotes Malachi 3:1, “...I will send my messenger [angel] ahead of you, who will prepare your [...]
From Gen 6:1, Who are the sons of God? What does it mean that the sons of God saw the daughters of men and they took them wives?
To answer the first question, we turn to Jude 1:6 “… and the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation …”. This says that angels descended to earth. The sons of God were angels created by God, and the daughters of men were women born through Adam under sin. The [...]
The shortest answer is 'Yes'. The full story is more complicated as outlined in the Bible. God created spirits as well as all the examples of earthly life we can see. In Isa. 45:12, God states, “I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, [...]
