Hebrews 2:4

* The purpose of spiritual gifts are related to the SILC. Every believer has at least one spiritual gift bestowed by GHS. And these spiritual gifts have nothing to do with ones dna. The believer doesn't earn it or deserve it nor are they worthy of it. It is Grace.

* At the beginning of the millennial reign, there will be a parade of all believers. They are all apart of the body of Christ to be presented as the Bride of Christ. All believers, whether they were chumps or champions during the church age, will be in this parade. At the end of the millennial reign, only Satan will be released from the bottomless pit and he will immediately lead a revolt of human beings against the perfect reign of the Lord Jesus Christ.

* Physical death is the gateway to Heaven if the rapture doesn't occur first. The champion of pure grace will not fear this final experience on this whole round planet in his body of corruption. However, until our fixed hour of departure arrives, we are the fight the good fight, finish the course set before us and keep the faith (doctrine).

* Romans 11:33-36

* The humanity of Christ learned obedience through the things He suffered.

* It is God who has provided us with volition. We didn't do this. So why did He do this? So we would not allow all that He has accomplished on our behalf to drift by us.
