[1] Rebellious angels believe God is a liar (Genesis 3:1-5).  To document Divine integrity, God became part of visible creation—lower than angels (Hebrews 2:9).

[2] In a remarkable memorial to God’s integrity, God Himself became part of visible creation for all eternity.

[3] God will create a new heavens and earth that combines the eternal dwelling place of God and visible creation into one local (Compare Revelation 21:17); there, He and elect volitional creatures will dwell.  See Revelation 22:1-5.
