How about a place wherein those are but a portion of the bargain? The what??? Yup! I said it, repeat after me B-A-R-G-A-I-N!
“So, is that not akin to a ‘sale’?” Yes it is! Amazing, mind boggling and unimaginable really…
Let me point out a few facts:
1. The Creator of ALL merely had a palate and Created the seen from the unseen. We have not seen it all! The diameter of the observable Universe is estimated at about 28 billion parsecs (93 billion light-years). As a reminder, a light-year is a unit of length equal to just under 10 trillion kilometres (or about 6 trillion miles). This is the calculated, or in Science the imaginable or calculated! Gives you profound thought when you consider what is unseen. Will electrons ever cease to be? What is “matter” made of? In essence – the unseen! But in fact, that is seen, under an electron microscope.
Eternal, the seen vs. the unseen. “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
A micron is a thousandth of a millimetre, hence 100 microns is 0.003937, or less than four thousandths of an inch or 2.5 cm. The human eye can, however, detect a bright light source shining through an aperture only 3 to 4 microns across.
For God’s invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since The Creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. Romans 1:20

But, there are angels among us! Unseen, but some can be seen if permitted and sent by The Creator to be seen. “For God shall give His angels charge over us, to keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone” Psalms 91:11-12. Real thinking 🤔 material. https://www.christianity.com/wiki/angels-and-demons/are-there-angels-among-us-today-what-is-their-purpose.html
Remember this? (For those who have read, heard or studied The Bible.) “Then the devil took Him into the holy city; and he had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If you are the Son of God throw yourself down. For it is written, ‘He will give His angels charge concerning you,’ and, ‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.” – Matthew 4:5-6
Our foe was there when The Bible was witten. Our foe sensed The Words from God’s Spirit. He knows them cold and will utilize them for his purpose. KNOW The Word, Live The Word – meditate on, peak it, claim it and practice it – Amen.
2. So, we live in ‘hope’. Is Heaven real? https://www.comeuntochrist.org/beliefs/purpose-of-life/there-is-life-after-death?gclid=CjwKCAjw4KD0BRBUEiwA7MFNTROjph2c5v95fSuX2n6Qh3d88zoOp4Uy6cLo9r8_sUupfBSJKB2vChoC810QAvD_BwE
I could get started on this, but would simply get caught up in experiences. Know what is! It is at times difficult to ‘reason’ the existence of Heaven. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now we know in part by faith and experience; that what we believe/sense/hear is real, then we shall know fully, even as we have been fully known.
God knows ALL things! God senses all things. YOU make the decisions, your actions are on you! “Even a child makes himself known by his acts, by whether his conduct is pure and upright.” Proverbs 20:11
“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” James 2:14-26

So, ‘Hope‘? A feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
Hope is a feeling of trust which can be defined/described as: Aspiration, desire, wish, expectation, ambition, aim, plan, dream, daydream, pipe dream, longing, yearning, craving, hankering.
“Hope” is commonly used in The Word to mean a wish : its strength is the strength of the person’s desire. But in the Bible hope is the confident expectation of what God has promised and its strength is in His faithfulness. God IS!!! God changeth not – But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With The LORD – our God, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/God-Is-Unchanging
We can refer back to the book of Ecclesiastes. https://youtu.be/22eS8acYlKE
3. Do not worry! Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
