That's What This Earth Age is!

Question: Why is God placing us back here on earth, this time, in animal bodies?

Answer: Because, we had never experienced death during the first earth age, therefore, We never understood the permanency of what the death of our soul would mean. In the first earth age we had a body like Christ had after he arose from the dead, when he entered the locked room with out opening a door, as described in John 20:19 "Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, "Peace be unto you."

No one aged and died back then.  You see, back in the first earth age we all had celestial bodies
during the millions of years after our creation; Bodies like Christ had after His resurrection, and none of us had ever died. God created us, had we not joined Lucifer in his rebellion, to live for ever. We, including Lucifer/Satan; therefore, thought we were indestructible. Oh we had seen animals being born and and later die; but not us, we didn't have flesh and blood bodies. We in that first earth age thought we were like God. When God sentenced Lucifer to die in the "Lake of Fire" at the end of this second earth age He chose to give us a opportunity to still salvage our own soul.

But, Alas! Many of us still don't know the lesson we are taught in  Acts 17:28. Oh! Intellectually we know someday our flesh and blood body is going to die; But, we can't or won't equate this to our soul. 
Acts 17:28  For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Think long and hard about what Paul is saying here in Acts 17:28. Every breath, every movement; our very being is dependent on Him, every moment of our lives! We are not existing in some sort of automatic mode which someday ends, i.e. Physical death; No, we are dependent on Him for each and every breath as it happens! And we are also dependent on Him for the continuation of the life of our soul.

We need to learn this lesson. God places us here in these animal bodies so that we realize our need to accept His offer of, salvation by His grace, in this earth age.

That is the only reason He placed us here
this second time!

After Lucifer's sin, God determined that we needed to learn just how permanent the death of our soul will be; Therefore, He decided to bring us back on a rebuilt earth in animal bodies, where we would experience the life and death of our loved ones, who we can no longer communicate with after they die, the "shadow death" (the death of their flesh and blood body, as talked about in the 23rd. Psalm), in order to teach us how permanent the loss of our soul will be.

And the need for us to accept His offer of grace, taking advantage of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ's perfect shed blood, on the cross at Calvary, to  cover our sins over, to be remembered no more by Him. He is able to do this because, He is BOTH GOD AND MAN! If we will only believe in Him and invite Him into our heart to change us and make us acceptable in His eyes. Not by anything we, ourselves do, for He will do it for us.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
