Each Soul Will Reside in Eternity
Hebrews 13:2 (KJB) Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Let us never forget that every person we meet in this world has a soul that will reside in eternity. Whether it be within sweet fellowship with God. Or found among the flames of Hell is not something we can determine.
The Bible tells us that only God knows the condition of the heart. Though we can and should discern and inspect a harvest of fruit, God knows all the details which we are not privy to know, but that’s okay. We can choose to treat all people with dignity, respect, and as if they were Jesus himself despite their state of spiritual health or the circumstances at work about them.
In fact, in this above verse that is precisely what God’s Word instructs us to do. Treat others well. It is even possible that the stranger we meet in our workplace, on the street, in a restaurant, or wherever we come in contact in conversation with a stranger that they could be an angel but we do not realize it from our limited perspective from this earth.
Indeed, it is true, we should strive to treat others as if it were Jesus Himself for that stranger we come across on our pathway in this world could just possibly be an angel. It is not out of the realm of possibility.
