Was Adam Offered Heavenly Life?

More specifically, the question is whether he was offered heavenly life before the fall. Pastor Wes White provides an illuminating discussion (link). Interestingly, this meshes well with another recent post of mine (Turretin cf. Goodwin). Naturally, Pastor White makes good use of Turretin in his explanation.

TF,

wow again!

I will certainly reread this!

I want to post the last bit and make a remark:

[[When we are worshipping God corporately, for example, engaged with heart, mind, and soul, we are closest to what we will be doing to all eternity.]]

Yes!!

I was reading these verses of Scripture and came to the same conclusion:::>

Rev 7:13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, "Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?"
Rev 7:14 I said to him, "Sir, you know." And he said to me, "These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev 7:15 "Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
Rev 7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.
Rev 7:17 For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Yes, this describes "What" I will be doing after I pass from this LIFE and this earthly mortal's being to there!

Therefore I have this saying:

IF WE DO NOT GET DOWN TO DOING IN THIS LIFE WHAT WE ARE CALLED TO DO IN THE NEXT LIFE WHILE IN THIS LIFE, WE WILL NOT START DOING IT IN THE NEXT LIFE THEN TOO.
