Doesn't Fit or Make Sense to You,
lay aside conventional church teaching
and consider what you are about to read.
You will be amazed.
Based on the following,
all of a sudden,
everything you read in the Word of God
will become clear.
It makes sense!
The reason being,
I want you to search God's Word.
Let the Holy Spirit be your guide,
and every time you run across a Bible verse that backs what I write,
you will say to your self,
"why did I not learn this in my church?"
From that day forward
you will never forget the truths the Holy Spirit leads you to,
and you will be a better Christian for it.
What you are about to read
may be new to you.
try to be open minded and absorb that which has been hidden,
from before the foundation of this world.
Before the earth ever was,
while as yet He had not made the earth,
nor the fields,
nor the highest part of the dust of the world,
wisdom alone was with our Father,
and He was alone,
which is to say,
He was lonely.
So He created,
the souls of the sons of God,
and gave to each of them "free will".
It is at that time,
you and I came into existence,
long before this flesh age,
long before He placed you and me in that embryo in our mother's wombs.
He then created this beautiful
to be inhabited,
and the "stars" of heaven,
shouted for joy.
And so we did inhabit this perfect
our beautiful home,
until one named Lucifer began to take charge
and usurp the authority of our Father.
He was so successful in his conniving
that he drew one third of God's children (our brothers and sisters)
away from Him.
Our Father gave this one,
every opportunity to repent and change his ways,
but he would not.
An ensuing conflict followed
and some of God's children
stood against this 'dragon' and were loyal and faithful to God.
judgment was passed and Satan (Lucifer) was sentenced to die,
And so it is,
he is called the son of perdition,
the son who will perish, even death.
Our Father, in His love for His
delayed the judgment of the rest of his children.
He instituted a plan of reconciliation,
to bring back those who had followed Satan
as well as those who just didn't care one way or the other.
He declared long ago,
that plan of salvation is written in the "heavens which are now"
and contained within the pure zodiac,
including the virgin birth
and the man Child who would be brought forth as Savior.
But as with all of God's works,
especially His word,
man has succeeded in perverting,
and hiding, the truth,
to point at which it becomes a mystery.
So we come to Gen 1:2 where God
and destroyed the "world that then was",
the age to which the fossils and the remains of dinosaurs belong.
He literally knocked this planet
off of its true axis
and out of its perfect orbit,
whereby it became completely,
and utterly, void and desolate.
We, the sons of God were not
in our flesh bodies at that time
and we returned to heaven at the overthrow of Satan,
the "katabole" in Greek.
He then re-made the earth, to again be livable
and brought forth the "flesh" man
and his mate the "womb man",
created in the likeness and image of God and we, the angels.
In other words,
we look like ourselves in the flesh.
Prior to this earth age,
the only death we had ever seen was the death of animals.
The flesh man of this earth age
is God's method of teaching us the consequences of sin.
Allowing us to realize the consequences of following satan,
giving us an opportunity to save our souls,
if not now,
then, during the millennium,
when we will have first hand knowledge of both worlds.
Flesh man was then instructed
to go forth and replenish (fill)
not plenish it,
for it had been populated before.
Except we lived in our celestial (spirit) bodies in the first earth age;not these (flesh and blood) animal bodies we are now living in.
It was decreed for all of God's
children to pass through this earth age,
born of woman,
born innocent, i.e.
"it is given unto all men to die once",
in the flesh of course.
when we are born in the flesh
we have no knowledge of the events that occurred
in the "world that then was".
That is what born innocent means.
Our minds are blank.
We are free to chose whether to follow God or Satan.
Of course some of us already
chose to follow God
in the "world that was"
and stood against Satan.
Therefore God chose them (predetermined,
having justified them,
to be used by Him as the remnant and His elect,
down through the allotted time of history,
to bring about His plan.
Do you now see how Paul's statement
in Ephesians 1:4 makes so much sense,
when he says,
"we (God's elect) where chosen before the foundation of this world,
that we should be holy and blameless before Him in love?"
It remains a "mystery" to the world.
(Some of us were chosen in the first earth age because we remaind faithful to God during Satan's rebellion)
Paul, himself was a good example of this; he was chosen to perform the tasks he accomplished in this present earth age, by God in the first earth age.
God then, after He had created
the races, the nations, on the sixth day, rested on the seventh.
On the eighth day He formed Adam
and his wife Eve
to be the "tillers of the ground",
to prepare and make ready for the Savior of the world.
For it would be through their offspring,
the children of Adam and Eve,
that Jesus Christ would be born.
Satan knew that.
So what did he do?
He immediately tried to thwart God's plan.
He seduced mother Eve!
Not into eating an apple (the word apple is not found in the Book of Genesis)
but into bringing forth his seed,
That is why you will not find
Cain in Adam's genealogy
in chapter 5 of Genesis.
He has his own in chapter 4.
He was not Adam's son!
It is a mystery?
What happened in the fig grove
has been hidden for a long time.
In fact, it's interesting that
the very word "fig",
according to Webster's dictionary,
also means "hidden",
the expression being "it is a fig".
But remember the Parable of the
Tares in Matthew 13?
Jesus Christ explained
how the "children of disobedience",
Satan's children, the sons of
His explanation IS NOT a parable.
The parable was given earlier.
This is the simple truth.
He answered and said unto them,
He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
 The field is the world;
the good seed are the children of the kingdom;
but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
 The enemy that sowed them is the devil;
the harvest is the end of the world;
and the reapers are the angels.
It remains a "mystery" to the world.
the first murderer,
God raised up Seth to continue Adam's progeny.
Then as Adam's family grew,
Satan had his loyal followers,
the wicked sons of God,
leave their "first habitation",
and come directly to earth,
without being born of woman.
That violated God's decree
and thus they sealed their eternal destruction.
These sons of God took to wife the daughters of Adam
and that union produced the "gibor", giants.
Only Noah and his family
were left undefiled by these sons of God,
i.e. had maintained a pure pedigree.
Our Father brought about the flood of Noah
to rid the earth of these menacing creatures.
Noah's flood was not world wide.
The signs of flood that we see in other parts of the world
are from Lucifer's flood
at the end of the world of old.
there was yet another influx of fallen angels
following Noah's flood.
Those later giants awaited the children of Israel
in the promised land.
Remember when the spies of Joshua came back and reported giants?
who was 13 feet tall,
was one of the last of these giants that we read of in the Bible.
(Evidence that giants once roamed the earth are plentiful if you care to research.
Start with Easter Island and the shores of Bashan.)
Throughout the Old Testament
we read of Satan's attempts to thwart God's plan,
his attempts at Abraham and Sarah,
Judah and his troubles, etc., etc., etc.,
until finally Satan brings about the crucifixion of Christ,
the bruising of His heel, as prophesied in Genesis 3:15.
(Some of us are saved in this
earth age, by claiming the blood of Christ to wash away our unfaithfulness)
We will be part of the first resurrection,
receive eternal life,
and become Christ's training assistants during His millennial reign,
teaching righteousness to our brothers and sisters.
We are now about to enter into
a new era,
the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ and His saints.
But before we do,
we will witness the entering in,
a grand entrance to be sure,
of the false messiah,
who will bring about his one world political (and religious) system.
As Paul taught in 2 Thes 2,
he will stand in Jerusalem claiming to be Christ returned
and effectively convincing the entire world by performing wonders and miracles in the sight of men.
Accompanying him will be his
those sons of God in Gen. 6 that we just discussed.
It is written and declared by
"as it was in the days of Noah,
so shall it be before His return...
they will be eating and drinking,
and giving and taking in marriage".
Now you know who.
There is so much more.
We have but briefly covered some of the "mysteries" which Paul taught.
But contained therein are the answers
to so many questions that mainstream Christianity struggles with.
how is it that God could have hated (loved less by comparison)
Esau and loved Jacob while they were yet in their mother's womb?
(Anyone with children will tell
you that new born babies have different personalities
"right out of the gate".
But of course!)
How is it that God named Jeremiah and others before they were born?
How is it that Paul could say we were chosen before the "katabole"?
It is so simple.
Our Father knew us from before, long ago.
We are His children.
We were with Him before we came to dwell (tabernacle)
for a short time in this flesh body.
It will die and decay and we
will RETURN to the Father
(unless of course we are alive and remain at the second coming of Christ.
Then we will be changed instantly,
in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
into our spiritual bodies.
Remember Paul said in 1 Cor.
"behold I show you a mystery,
we shall not all sleep").
And so it is easy to see how
Paul becomes very humbled
because of the grace and the greatness of the revelation of the plan of God
(now no longer a mystery)
We will all spend the millennium,
reborn in spiritual bodies,
having experienced life in flesh bodies,
separated from God.
Some of us, those of us who have already accepted Christ as our savior and have studied and learned to tell the difference between what is holy (Jesus Christ) and what is profane (Satan) and did not worship Satan when he came to earth, claiming he was God, took part in "The First Resurrection" and were awarded "ETERNAL LIFE" at Christ's return.
While Satan is locked in the
pit for one thousand years,
even the ones of us who went through the earth age
without coming to know the Lord,
will learn to appreciate what Christ has done for us.
At the end of the one thousand
when Satan is released for a little while,
they will all be tested.
(In addition to those of us who have already been awarded 'ETERNAL LIFE" Some will be saved during the millennium after passing that final test)
Many will now know the deference between what is holy (Jesus) and what is profane (Satan) and will have remained faithful to the
Lord choosing Jesus over Satan.
And will be awarded eternal life at "The great White Throne of Judgment".
(This is the Second Resurrection).
But if we again give in to Satan's
evil temptations we,
just like Satan who has already been sentenced,
We will be consumed from within,
and be no more,
for God is a consuming fire!
