Three Earth/Heaven Ages

Introduction 

 

Due to the fact that history truly does repeat itself, it is important to understand history to learn from past successes and failures.The bible is full of places where it appears to be speaking about an incident like Noah’s Flood, when in reality it is speaking about another era.  For this reason subtle differences make it appear that there are minor errors in the bible, or maybe even that it contradicts itself.   When the bible is speaking of a past or future event, be careful about quickly assuming points of time.  Have you ever heard teachers say the earth is only six-thousand years old?  This earth age might possibly be 6,000 to 13,000 years old, however the earth has been around much longer and many things happened before this current earth age.  Ever wonder where dinosaur bones come from; or maybe how the Grand Canyon formed; or the existence of sea fossils in the mountainous areas of the world; or carbon dating of organic material dating millions of years old?

 

 

Psalms 104

1. Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

2. Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:

3. Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

4. Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

5. Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

6. Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

7. At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

8. They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

9. Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

10. He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

11. They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.

12. By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

13. He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

14. He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

15. And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.

16. The trees of the Lord are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;

17. Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.

18. The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.

19. He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

20. Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

21. The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.

22. The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.

23. Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

24. O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

25. So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

26. There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

27. These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.

28. That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

29. Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

30. Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

31. The glory of the Lord shall endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works.

32. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

33. I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

34. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord.

35. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the Lord, O my soul. Praise ye the Lord.

 

 

Luke 10

17. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

18. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

19. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

20. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

21. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

22. All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

23. And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:

24. For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

 

 

 


 

 

First Earth/Heaven Age

 

God created his children for his company.  Since God desires real love, his children were allowed to have freewill.  Nowhere does it state the length of time for the 1st earth/heaven age, so it is "possible" that it existed for a very long period of time.  It appears that there are two types of children created; regular angels and archangels.

 

Archangels or Cherubim are the more powerful entities.  Why are some angels at this time stronger than others?  Perhaps the Cherubim were specifically created to guard the throne.  Who would there be to guard the throne from?  Any entity with freewill has the ability to generate jealousy from within themselves.  The angels guarding the throne were to protect this special area only afforded to our creator.


Sometime during this first age a terrible thing happened.  One of the beloved angels guarding this area for our Father became jealous and desired our Fathers power & glory for himself.  Through ignorance, most of Gods children did not take a stand.  God has a very small remnant (7000 very elect) that stood firmly against Satan, and a separate very devote 144,000 elect.  Satan also has a devoted remnant (7000) of fallen angels.  Did God know that sooner-or-later this rebellion would happen?  Possibly, but it is not written to my knowledge.

 

 

Romans 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

 

Revelation 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

 

Revelation 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

 

There was a time when all God’s children sang together and shouted for joy; but not during this age.  Below in Job 38, notice God is speaking to Job in past tense, not future.

 

Job 38

1. Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,

2. Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?

3. Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

4. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

5. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

6. Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

7. When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

 

Imagine our Father creating a heaven and earth from the beginning to be inhabited forever. This First Earth/Heaven Age was not created Void and without Form, but became that way. Imagine a earth without seas and oceans; a earth with the water encompassing the globe above the mountains as a protective barrier within the atmosphere. Plant life on earth would be watered from the dew of the protective waters.

 

 

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 

Isaiah 45:18 For thus saith the LORD That created the heavens; God Himself That formed the earth and made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: "I am the LORD; and there is none else.

 

Psalm 104:

5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: The waters stood above the mountains.

7 At Thy rebuke they fled; At the voice of Thy thunder they hasted away.

 

2 Peter 3

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.

 

 

Genesis 1:2 And the earth *was (was = became) without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

* H1961 From the 'Strong's Exhaustive Concordance' H= Hebrew G= Greek

 

H1961 היה hâyâh haw-yaw' - A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): - beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.

 

H1933 הוה הוא haw-vaw', haw-vaw'- A primitive root (compare H183, H1961) supposed to mean properly to breathe; to be (in the sense of existence): - be, X have.

Jeremiah 4:

23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was *without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.

* Strongs Concordance References: to'-hoo H8414 va bo'-hoo H922

in vain H8414 תּהו tôhû to'-hoo - From an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), that is, desert; figuratively a worthless thing; adverbially in vain: - confusion, empty place, without form, nothing, (thing of) nought, vain, vanity, waste, wilderness.

 

H922 בּהוּbôhûbo'-hoo - From an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, that is, (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin: - emptiness, void.

24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.

25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.

26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by His fierce anger.

There was man after Noah's flood being Noah's family.  So why did our Father destroy the First Earth/Heaven Age?  Our Father created us for his company. He did not create us as mindless programmed robots, but free willed souls with the ability to generate love from within ourselves; not fake forced affection.

 

Sometime during the First Earth/Heaven Age, one of our Fathers beloved children progressed in our Fathers eyes. He was given the position to guard the Throne of God, where he became envious and prideful, and wanted to be God himself. Notice below that this “King of Tyrus” in Ezekiel (below) was in the Garden of Eden (heaven) and he is a cherub guarding the throne of God.

 

Ezekiel 28

1. The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,

2. Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:

3. Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:

4. With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:

5. By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:

6. Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;

7. Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.

8. They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.

9. Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.

10. Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.

11. Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

12. Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

13. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the Beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

14. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

16. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

18. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

19. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

This man (playing the role as the King of Tyre) was in heaven as the anointed cherub. Unlike other children of God, this man has already been sentenced to eternal death from the first earth/heaven age, giving him the title “Son of Perdition”.

John 17

11. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

12. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

 

2 Thessalonians 2

1. Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2. That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Here are a few more names (roles) for the same entity given here as the son of perdition:

Revelation 12: 9. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Our Father completely and utterly destroyed the First Earth/Heaven Age. Not a single plant or animal life form survived. How did our Father destroy the earth in the first earth age? The earth was destroyed by water much more destructive than Noah’s Flood.

Satan caused this mess and he is associated to lunar events in the Bible many times. Maybe the moon wasn’t around in the first earth/heaven age? 

 

How did the Moon come to be? The leading thought (Impact Trigger Hypothesis) is that a Mars-sized body once hit Earth and the resulting debris (from both Earth and the impacting body) accumulated to form the Moon. Scientists believe that the Moon was formed approximately 4.5 billion years ago (the age of the oldest collected lunar rocks). When the Moon formed, its outer layers melted under very high temperatures, forming the lunar crust, probably from a global "magma ocean.

 

Perhaps a collision from a Mars-sized body and the earth caused the protective water based atmosphere to collapse and give the earth her tilt and wobble. Fun stuff to ponder.

 

Fall of Satan

Isaiah 14

12. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

13. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

15. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

16. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

17. That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

18. All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.

19. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

 

 

Satan’s Political Structure

Chapter 12 of the book of Revelation speaks of Satan’s political structure (Beast System) during both the 1st and 2nd ages.  Verses 1-4 were the 1st age.

 

Revelation 12

1. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

2. And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

 

Revelation 21:

9  And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

10  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

---

14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

---

23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

 

Woman = the bride, the Lambs wife, Gods children that overcome death

Twelve (12) Stars = 12 foundations of truth; Apostles

Pained = Mission to save God’s lost children through birth of a new (2nd) age

 

3. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

 

1st Age:  7 Dominions, 10 Leaders, 7 Governments

 

1/3 of God’s children followed Satan in the 1st Age. 

7 Heads = 7 Dominions (locations)

10 Horns = 10 Leaders (rulers)

7 Crowns = 7 Power Structures (governments)

 

There is nothing new under the sun. The 1st Age (Rev 12:3) has a similar political makeup as the 2nd Age (Rev 13:1), but with a twist.  There is a difference in the number of leaders (crowns) in the second earth age.  Both systems have 7 Heads and 10 Horns, but seven (7) crowns in the 1st age and ten (10) crowns in the 2nd age.

 

Reference:  Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

 

2nd Age:  7 Dominions, 10 Leaders, 10 Governments

Sea = All People (Nations)

Beast = World Political System

7 Heads = 7 Dominions (locations)

10 Horns = 10 Leaders (rulers)

10 Crowns = 10 Power Structures (governments)

In the 2nd age each ruler will have its own power structure.  Makes me wonder that in the 1st age, not allowing each ruler to have their own government may have divided the ranks? 

 

# So we can more easily understand, refer to Zechariah 8:23, regarding ten men who take hold out of all languages of the nations and shall take hold of the skirt of him who is a Ke­nite, (or as it is recorded there “Jew”), saying let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you. Let us pinpoint this beast fur­ther.

 

 In Revelation 17:3 it says, “So he carried me away in the Spirit and lifted me up in my spirit and he carried me into the wilderness and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet col­ored beast full of names of blasphemy.” Now here we see the same subject matter “full of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns”. We know that the word Revelation means “to reveal”. There­fore, we understand the meaning of this. It becomes very clear to us that the ten heads (I think he meant to say ten horns) are ten rulers that will take hold out of seven dominions. This beast is a political beast that makes up the political system which is one worldism. It is the political system that the false christ shall use to make ready the “holy” place. This system is being set up now in the holy place, ready to receive its king. Lucifer is that king.

 

Verse 5 moves to the 2nd Age, where the woman (Israel) has the man child (Jesus).

5. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

 

Revelation 19:

15  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

 

6. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

The wilderness is the progression of true Israel (Christian nations within the 2nd age) throughout the world today.  Verses 1-6 are history, while 7-17 is future.  Verses 7-17 speaks of the 2nd Age before the Lords Day; before the 1000 year millennium period.

 

7. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

8. And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

13. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

15. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

 


 

 

Second Earth/Heaven Age

 

Freewill or Predestination? 

 

No matter which age we are discussing, ultimately each entity must accept Gods love through freewill to have an eternal soul.  Some souls overcame in the first earth age and some did not.  Those that overcame in the first age may be chosen to help carry out our Fathers plan throughout the second age.  Paul's freewill was to murder Christians, but he was a chosen vessel due to what he had done in the first age.  Also, don't think Paul got away Scot free for killing Christians, because he paid a very heavy price physically and mentally during his ministry.  Those that did not overcome in the first age (due to deception) may accept Jesus as savior thorough freewill and overcome through grace in the second age.  Though life may not seem fair, you can understand why everyone is placed in a certain position in this life.  God loves all of his children equally and there are no free rides.  God is fair and everyone gets what they deserve sooner or later.

 

Jeremiah 1

4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

6 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.

7 But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.

8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.

 

 

Romans 8

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

 

 

Romans 9

10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;

11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)

12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.

13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.

15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.

18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.

 

Ephesians 1

4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

 

When a spirit is placed by God into a physical body within the womb, the child develops within the womb in water.  When a woman is in labor, what happens just before the child enters this world?  The water breaks. 

 

For those souls that did not overcome in the 1st age, each soul in the 2nd age must do two things to enter into the kingdom of God:

1> Go through this 2nd age once in the flesh, and

2> accept Gods spirit to acknowledge that Jesus is our savior.  If both are not performed by each spirit, the soul cannot enter the kingdom of God.

 

 

John 3

1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

 

 

Mark 12

25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?

 

Many will be given the opportunity to accept God during their life during the 2nd Age born innocent of women.  Satan is already judged to death; however he is not destroyed yet because God has a purpose for him. Some souls (fallen angels) will refuse to be born through women, which God will allow.  These fallen angels will return with Satan when he is booted from Heaven during the 1st Tribulation period (Tribulation of Anti-Christ) of the 2nd age.  These fallen angels are the direct opposite of Gods 7000 very elect.  Gods 7000 elect has not and will not bow a knee to Baal (Satan).  These fallen angels will be destroyed at the return of Christ and ALL remaining (good and bad) will bow to the Lord. 

 

 

Romans 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

Revelation 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Revelation 15

3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

 

After God destroyed the 1st earth age, like it or not all souls (good and bad) are with God in heaven.  We proceed through the 2nd earth age one time (incarnation) and one time only (not reincarnation).  This is not pre-existence because all souls were created in the first earth age and have not cease to exist to this point.  Only our physical existence has changed.  The 7,000 fallen angels directly disobeyed Gods order and pronounced judgment on themselves at the return of Christ.  There will not be any other soul destroyed before the White Throne Judgment except for Satan, and that is only because he was already judged in the 1st Age.  If the existence of the soul before birth is hard pill to swallow, let’s go back and look study the Lord himself for a moment.  Do you think Christ did not exist before he entered Mary's womb?  I'm not saying anyone is like God, but what I'm trying to get across is that for a soul (in a spiritual body) to exist before birth should not be a taboo subject.  Memory of the 1st age has been removed from each soul in the flesh to allow us to be born innocent.

 

 

Genesis 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

 

Proverbs 13

12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

 

Luke 20:

34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:

35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

37 Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

 

John 1

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

---

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

 

 

Revelation 1

17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

 

Isaiah 48:12 Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.

 

Revelation 22

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Revelation 1

7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

 

Genesis 14

18. And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

19. And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

20. And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

Psalms 110

1 A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

 

Daniel 3

19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.

20 And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.

21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

22 Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.

25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.

27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

28 Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

John 8

56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

 

 

 

First Days of Genesis

 

Going through the "Days" of Genesis remember, do not take the days of Genesis Chapter 1 as a literal 24 hour day. 

2 Peter 3 :8. "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." 

 

DAY 1

Genesis 1

1.  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 

First, God created the universe in verse 1, not in vain, void, or without form.  Between verse 1 and 2, there was a very long period of time.  Verse 1 pertains to the 1st Earth/Heaven age, while verse 2 pertains to the 2nd Earth/Heaven age.  There are things that happend between verses one and two which are only discusses in other places of the Bible.

 

Reference:  Isaiah 45:18. For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.

 

Reference:  John 1: 1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2. The same was in the beginning with God.

3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

 

2.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

 

The earth was not created void and without form, but became that way.  The word "was" in verse 2 should be translated "became"; reference Strong’s Concordance.  It is important to recognize that God moved upon the face of the "waters".  Remember the "waters" here so that it will not be confused with the "waters" of Noah’s Flood.  More catastrophic than Noah’s flood, these waters completely and utterly destroyed the earth (no life).  The earth was already a physical entity covered in waters and existing in space-time before God said "...let there be light" in Genesis 1:3.   God was the overpowering light in the first age (and will be in the third age), while natural heavenly bodies will be the light in the second age.  So, God begins his plan to rejuvenate the earth.  

 

Jeremiah 4:24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.

4:25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.

4:26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by His fierce anger.

 

 3.  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

 4.  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

 5.  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

 

 

DAY 2

 6.  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

 7.  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

 8.  And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

 

What is firmament?  Strongs H7549:  râqı̂ya‛- raw-kee'-ah - From H7554; properly an expanse, that is, the firmament or (apparently) visible arch of the sky: - firmament.

 

There is water on the earth, and there is water in our atmosphere.  The earth is round, and our atmosphere provides a visible arch across the sky, especially from space.  If you have ever seen pictures of the Earth from the edge of space, you can see how visible light is arched around the Earth within its atmosphere.  If you were to look into the sky without an atmosphere, instead of a beautiful blue sky it would be black.  Earths' atmosphere, oceans, and water table were rejuvenated in Day 2.

 

 

DAY 3

 9.  And God said, Let the waters under the Heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

 10.  And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

 11.  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

 12.  And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 13.  And the evening and the morning were the third day.

 

Water covered the earth, and the water receded to its proper (sea) level.  First plant life (including those producing wild fruits, berries, herbs, etc.) were created for the land, was able to naturally reproduce, and it was good. 

 

 

 DAY 4

 14.  And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

 15.  And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

 16.  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

 17.  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

 18.  And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

 19.  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

 

God positions the Earth and Moon (spin, tilt, and orbit) into proper alignment within the Goldilocks Zone.  The spin of the earth creates day and night, the tilt of the earth creates seasons, and its orbit around the sun shows us the star constellations of the Zodiac.  A proper combination of spin, tilt, and orbit give us an accurate measure of time in seasons, days, and years. 

 

 

DAY 5

 20.And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

 21.  And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 22.  And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

 23.  And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

 

At Day 5 the first animal life appears.  Verse 25 (pre-mankind) marks the end of the 1st Earth Age. 

Does Job 40 describe a Dinosaur during this period?  Not sure, but decide for yourself.

 

Job 40: 15. Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.

16. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.

17. He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.

18. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.

19. He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.

20. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.

21. He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.

22. The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.

23. Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.

24. He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

 

 

DAY 6

 24.And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

 25.  And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 26.  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Verse 27 is 6th Day man.  The word "cattle in v24 is bhemah (be-hay-maw) can mean one of three things, 1> beast (collective of all animals), 2> cattle, livestock (of domestic animals), 3> wild beasts.

 27.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

 28.  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

 29.  And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

 30.  And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

 31.  And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

With DAY 6, wild creatures of land created.  Genesis 1:27 could possibly mark the beginning of the 2nd Earth Age with the creation of Mankind.  God created mankind in the likeness of himself and the angels.  Man created on the sixth day is blessed, have the ability to repopulate the earth and control to master their environment.  God was pleased and it was very good.

 

Replenish:  To fill or make complete again

 

Important:  Notice that God created the (wild) animals FIRST, then mankind SECOND.  These men were created in the image of God and the angels and God said it was VERY Good.  They were created and walked the earth long before Adam was formed.  Compare "DAY 6" to Genesis 2:18-24.

 

 

Genesis 2 - Post 7th Day Man (Farmer):  Most everyone (including myself for many years) automatically assume that after the first seven days of Genesis, the story backtracks to day six to explain in detail the creation of man.  However, I ask you to please consider for a moment that the story simply continues instead of backtracking.  Consider that men were created on the sixth day, and another specific man was formed after the seventh day for a different purpose than that of the first men.  

 

 

DAY 7

Genesis 2 -

 1.  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

 2.  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

 3.  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

 4.  These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,

 

6th Day Mankind created man in the previous verses, another different man (the farmer) formed in the later verses. 

 

 5.  And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

Verse 5 didn't say there was no man; it said there was no man "to till the ground". 

 6.  But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

 7.  And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

 8.  And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

 9.  And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 

This formed flesh man was placed in Eden (paradise or heaven), and the trees from the ground may be literal trees.  However, there are two unique trees mentioned here which are 1> tree of life (Jesus), and 2> tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Satan). 

 

Mark 8:23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.

24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.

 

Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. 

 

Revelation 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 

---

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

 

 

 18.  And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

 19.  And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

 20.  And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

 21.  And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

 22.  And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

 23.  And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

 24.  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

 

6th Day man, God created the (wild) animals FIRST, then mankind SECOND.  These men were created in the image of God and the angels and God said it was VERY Good.  They were created and walked the earth long before Adam was formed.  Compare "DAY 6" to Genesis 2:18-24.

1st (Wild) Animals – 2nd Man

 

Post 7th Day man, notice the different order in creation to Day 6.  God formed Adam as farmer FIRST, then formed (domestic) animals SECOND.  And then made Eve from Adam. 

1st Adam – 2nd (Domestic) Animals

 

Eve is called "the mother of all living" because through her and Adam would come Jesus.  So are the decedents of Adam any better than mankind created on the sixth day?  Absolutely NOT; sixth day man was created in the image of God and the angels, and God said it was very good.  Our Father's creation is beautiful and just the way he wanted it.

 

Acts 10:28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

 

1Peter 2:17 Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

 

 

Salvation - Creation to Christ

Animal sacrifices of the Old Testament are simply not worthy to pay the price of sins.   So what was the meaning of animal sacrifice in the Old Testament?  First, it was symbolic of the coming Messiah.  Second, it allowed people to understand the trade of an innocent life for a guilty one on a personal level.  Most of us today cannot understand having to kill an animal that would not bring harm to anyone or anything (as a lamb). Animal sacrifice sounds cruel, but not nearly as cruel and the sacrifice of Christ.  Third, animal sacrifice allowed God to have an understanding whether-or-not these people (God’s chosen people) was willing to do the work necessary to obey his commandments.  Forth, animal sacrifice is symbolic of interest paid on a future debt.  Once our Messiah sacrificed himself for us, the debt for all sin was forever paid (past and future) for all who accept him. 

 

Luke 16

15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

18 Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.

 

The Laws of Yahweh were not done away with in the New Testament.  The Laws in the Old Testament are either still in effect today, or they were fulfilled.

1> The Commandments:  Major rules of conduct still in full effect today. 

2> Judgments:  As used in the bible, these are rules to decide a case among people.  This includes laws regarding property rights, master / servant, etc..

3> Statues:  These laws are general rules of conduct for the government of the nation as a whole, for general good order and prosperity. 

4> Ordinances and Rituals:  These are ceremonies which may or may not be in effect today.  Some ordinances are to be observed forever, while commandments in the ordinances were abolished.  All these ordinances were symbolic of Jesus.  Ordinances were to keep alive the memory, understanding and hope until Christ came. After He had come and fulfilled the promises, we are supposed to put our attention to the reality and not the mere symbols.

 

19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Since Jesus is speaking in past tense, Abraham's bosom is where those that overcame in the 1st age dwell in paradise.  Even though Lazarus may have been one of Gods beloved 7,000 elect who carried the truth forward through time, he was not very well respected by others on earth during his life in the flesh. 

 

Ecclesiastes 9

13 This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me:

14 There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it:

15 Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man.

16 Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.

17 The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.

18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.

 

The rich man is had not overcame at this point, and is consumed by mental shame (not physical pain).  The water the rich man desires is the living water of everlasting life.  There is a barrier between those that have overcame (Abraham's bosom), and those that have not.  For the three and a half days after the cruisificition, Christ "went and preached unto the spirits in prison".  So, the rich man after his physical death had the same opportunity to accept Christ as those after Christ had risen. 

 

John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

John 5

25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

1Peter 3:

18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

 

 

 

 

The Lords Day / 1000 Year Millennium Period

 

 

 2 Peter 3 :

8. "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." 

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

 

 

Those not truly given an opportunity to learn the truth in the 1st earth age, nor overcome during their flesh life in the 2nd age, will be taught the truth during the 1000 millennial year reign of Christ.  Those that did not overcome are referred to as "the dead" because they do not have eternal life at this point. 

 

Some may say, that sounds like a 2nd chance.  I tell you the truth; there are many that never really had a chance to know the truth up to this point.  Satan will be restrained during the millennial period so he nor his spirit will have any influence.  At the end of the millennial period, Satan will be freed for a short time to allow all those to follow him with absolute full knowledge of what they do.  Sadly, through all our Father and his creation have been through, there will be those that will follow Satan again at his last stand.

 

 

Revelation 20

1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

 

 

Isaiah 65

13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:

14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.

15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name:

16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.

17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.

24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

Great White Throne Judgment

 

Since Satan (son of perdition) has already been judged, God will destroy him first and he will be gone forever.  Next, judgment (the Great White Throne Judgment) for the rest of the dead will begin.  Many (hopefully most) will take part in the 2nd resurrection and will be judged worthy of eternal life.  Those that overcome during the Millennium period are judged by works.  Why not faith and grace?  Because during the Millennium there is no doubt who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

 

The souls that follow Satan at the end of the 1000 year millennial reign will be judged by their works and will be completely and utterly destroyed by Gods consuming lake of fire (Hell).  The memory of the existence of those souls will even be removed from creation; it will be as though they never existed.  Will those with eternal life be able to remember the former ages in the 3rd Age?  I don't know.  We will find out one day, and what a wonderful day that will be, moving into the 3rd Age.


In physics, the law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system remains constant.  Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but rather it transfers from one form to another.  This may be the reason God is described as a consuming fire.  If everything was created from him (including our souls), the dead souls will be taken back unto him and cease to exist.

 

 

Isaiah 66:

13 As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

14 And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.

15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.

17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.

19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.

21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD.

22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

 

 

Revelation 20

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Zechariah 14

1. Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3. Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

5. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

6. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

7. But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

8. And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

9. And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.

10. All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.

11. And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

12. And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

13. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

14. And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.

15. And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.

16. And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

17. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

18. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

19. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

20. In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, Holiness Unto The Lord; and the pots in the Lord's house shall be like the bowls before the altar.

21. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the Lord of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.

 

Revelation 21

1. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

5. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

6. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

8. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

9. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

10. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

11. Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

12. And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

13. On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

14. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15. And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

16. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

17. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

18. And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

20. The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

21. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

22. And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

23. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

24. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

25. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

26. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

27. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
