Point 6. Both Categories of the Enemies of God, Satan and the Fallen Angels and Unbelievers, will be Judged and Sentenced to the Eternal Lake of Fire.
If Jesus Christ is called the only Holy One, and the elect angels are called holy, how can this be unless they were made holy after they were found unholy?
REV 7:9-12 “resurrected believers praise the Lord for salvation and the angels join in by twice saying Amen.”
In the Tribulation, while angels bring divine judgment upon the earth, no angel is allowed to execute this judgment apart from Jesus Christ because He alone is worthy, REV 5:25.
JOB 4:17-18 “Can mankind be just before God? Can a man be pure before his Maker? He puts no trust even in His servants; And against His angels He charges error.”
One vague reference to angelic salvation in the Scripture; HEB 2:2-4.
A counterfeit presupposes understanding of the real.
The only sin that is unpardonable is the sin of rejecting the Gospel in the allotted time.
If only one third of the angels fell, would not God have offered some salvation to them?
God would be unfair if He then offered the reconciliation to man who also fell.
Angels observed every part of the first advent and incarnation of our Lord;
1TI 3:16 “Beheld by angels.”
EPH 3:10 “the multi-faceted sides of the wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.”
epithumeo to have a desire for something, to long for, to set the heart upon.
1CO 11:10 “ why do angels observe the attitude that the woman has toward her husband and the symbol of authority that it represents? Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.”
1CO 6:3 “Do you not know that we shall judge angels?”
Fut-act-ind of krino to make decisions for, to conclude, to approve, to decree, to rule, to govern, to preside over with the power of giving judicial decisions.
The veil of EXO 26:31-34 in the Temple was a reminder of the humanity of Christ.
Fine white linen = looks at experiential perfect righteousness.
It was under a blue veil which looks at Christ being made lower than heaven, even lower than angels.
The purple of the veil looks at the royalty of Christ, the scarlet looks ahead to the work of Christ on the Cross.
The linen curtains of EXO 26:31, were also of the same color scheme and they too were to have embroided upon them figures of angels.
Only TLJC is forever holy and pure and blameless.
