"Reality" to a human being tends to include things solely within the physical realm. Because things in and of the spirit (or "heavenly") dimension are not detected by the five senses, humans tend to discount it as being the true and eternal reality. Yet the paradox is that we live in a type of temporary (or virtual) reality created for a short-term purpose. The "real" reality lies beyond what can be perceived by ourselves alone. Obtaining a future life within the spirit realm requires assistance from God's Holy Spirit to understand and diligently seek it with enduring perseverance. The giving of God's Holy Spirit is a sure promise to those who are called.
