A Spiritual Boot Camp That's What This
Earth Age is!
Why is God
placing us back here on earth, this time, in animal bodies?
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 inJohn
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
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
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.
Alas! Many of us still don't know the lesson
are taught in Acts 17:28. Oh! Intellectually we
our flesh and blood body is going to die; But, we can't or won't equate
this to our soul. Acts 17:28For 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!Andwe are also dependent on
Him for the continuation of the life of our soul.
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 herethis second time!
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
blood body, as talked about in the 23rd. Psalm), in order
to teach us how permanent the loss of our soul
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.
