that He might fill all things.)

Jesus filled all covenants and prophecies of Scripture. Filling “all things” has to do with Jesus’ finished work. The result of that work made it possible for God to fully accept those who believe on Jesus to gain the rights of God’s presence. This phrase may also mean that Jesus returned to His sovereign theocratic rule over the universe (Co 1:18).

When the believer goes to heaven, it is an instantaneous, non-stop process. Angels will escort him or her to glory (He 1:14).

Death is one appointment we will keep for sure (He 9:27). Do you have the assurance that when death strikes your body you will go to heaven? Jesus provides death insurance. If you wish to possess that insurance policy go to this site:
