Additional Lesson Points

  • Everlasting life is fellowship with God, that it begins in faith already in temporal life and that everlasting condemnation is final separation from God.
  • Those that believe in Christ do not need to fear Christ's second coming, for it is a day of joy and victory for His own.
  • On the Last Day all will be gathered before God’s judgement seat
