1 John 4:15
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth with him, and He is God.
These questions come to mind, how and where will believers dwell with God? Believers will live with God in that mansion in the sky called heaven and will reign with Christ when He returns to earth to establish His earthly kingdom in the New Jerusalem. Living in the presence of God will last forever, which is the reward of salvation. Salvation is received after hearing the Word and then accepting the call to repent.
Believers live with God by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior who died on the cross at Calvary paying our sin-debt. Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savor is done in faith and saying yes He is God the Father's only begotten Son. Christ's atoning work reconciled sinful man back to holy God as Christ is the door through which man has access to the Father.
It is noteworthy to say; all who dwell with God will have glorified Christ-like bodies as all believers will have been washed in Christ's blood. We have a crown of righteous waiting for us as well as golden slippers. Living in the presence of God there will be no more pain and suffering or tears to shed, because they will have been done away with.
Living in the presence of God will be one glorious event.
