We live by what we see and hear in our world and we tend to believe that’s all there is.
But what we don’t see and hear is in another world – the real world. This unseen world created our world.
This other world is the spiritual world – God’s world.
And the only way we can see and hear the things of the unseen world is to read what God says about the unseen world.
It is required of us to see and hear what God says about His world.
If we don’t do so, then we are in serious trouble, because that’s where we find out about our beginning and about our end.
The fact is, we ourselves are spiritual beings clothed in flesh for only the time that we spend in our world – and then we’ll return to the place from which we came, the spiritual world – God’s world.
And when we return to the spiritual world our eternal destination – heaven or hell – will depend on whether or not we bothered to see and hear what God had to say about our beginning and about our end.
What all of this means is that we need to live in both worlds now in order to gain a clear understanding of both worlds until we leave this world that we will no longer need.
The gist of the matter is what Jesus said:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
