8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. (So without seeking His advice we made a mess!)
I Corinthians 3:19 tells us the truth concerning the great and powerful minds of the world.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;
Ezekiel 28:13-15, 17
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God (the only ones recorded in Eden, the garden were Adam, Eve and Satan); every precious stone was your covering: the sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created. (Unlike God who just was, is and will always be, he is just a created being.)
14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers (he was to protect mankind, not steal them from God!); I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God (he was meant to guard and protect God's government also); you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you.
17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty (pride entered); you corrupted your wisdom (this wisdom is what Eve chose and this world evolved from) for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, that they might gaze at you (so they would come to understand Satan's plan and how he possessed the King of Tyre as well as many others throughout the ages to fulfill his quest to become god to the earth).
Genesis 3:4-6 the serpent in the garden therefore was Satan!
4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. (who is the father of the lie? Satan.)
5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (The first lie “you will be like God”)
6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit (of his mind) and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate (they chose to feed on his tainted thinking).
Revelation 20:2 reveals this.
2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old (the one in the original garden), who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;
Satan was also called the tree of good and evil as well. God many times refers to beings as trees as we see in Isaiah 61:3.
3 To console those who mourn in Zion (people), to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” (Satan was the tree of good and evil.)
I John 2:17 tells us,
17 And the world is passing away (God has declared it, so it will be), and the lust of it (everything carnal mankind loves in the world will be gone); but he who does the will of God abides forever. (The ones that do His will, love and keep God's laws will live forever!)
Hebrews 10:16, New Testament, after Christ.
16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days (the days of the Mosaic law given to help Adam), says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”
How sad they are not taught! How can man keep laws they are unaware exist
Deuteronomy 6:5, a part of the law of Moses.
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
Mark 12:30-31 New Testament laws.
30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment (or law).
31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.
I John 4:20
20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar (pretty plain); for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
I John 4:21
21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.
Matthew 13:47-49 what will happen to these altered ones.
47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind,
48 which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels (His children), but threw the bad away (the plight of the lawless).
49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,
I John 2:15 said it this way 2,000 years plus ago!
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world (all the fun things Satan has provided), the love of the Father is not in him. (How many would be saddened, unhappy about things going down? Then face it, they are attached! Man needs to watch their hearts and minds as God watches them as much as He sees their actions.)
Romans 12:2 says,
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed (into a new creature and mature to a new species) by the renewing of your mind (feed it God's knowledge), that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
II Thessalonians 2:9-12
9 The coming of the lawless one (the body of Satan called Antichrist) is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders (this is why the Jonah anointing is on God's ministers today, so change can come through the Word, not signs and wonders),
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, (why?) because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved (refused God's end time knowledge).
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion (because they turned their back on the Word again like the garden!), that they should believe the lie, (just like Adam and Eve)
12 that they all may be condemned (Old King James says damned) who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
II Corinthians 4:4 warns:
4 whose minds the god of this age (Satan) has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. (don't want the Word exposing their sin)
Galatians 5:19-21 is a spiritual mirror that reveals the carnal fleshly nature of the lawless.
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past (God has warned and warned), that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Revelation 11:18 explains further.
18 The nations were angry (they won't repent or even see their sins, self-centered they do not consider God's will at all), and Your wrath has come (He will not tolerate all this forever), and the time of the dead, that they should be judged (those not alive through Christ), and that Youshould reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear Your name, small and great, and should destroy those who destroy the earth.” (The rebellious, the lawless through man's intellect are ruining the planet!)
Revelation 17:5-6 shows us the old Queen.
5 And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH (all the world's many religions).
6 I saw the woman (the bride of Satan), drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement (beautiful on the outside, ugly on the inside).
1 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory (end time knowledge restored to those that seek it).
2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen (there is nothing holy about the world's churches and religious society any longer), and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! (every kind of sexual sin, money schemes, false doctrine that backs loyalty to the world's systems)
3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her (church and government hold hands), and the merchants of the earth have become rich (books, literature of all kinds, clothing, statues on and on) through the abundance of her luxury.” (Is God going to revive this? If He did He would transgress His own laws!)
I Samuel 8:5-7
5 and said to him, “Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.”
6 But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord.
7 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. (Unfortunately mankind has shunned God's help, profaned His name, blamed Him for Satan's actions and replaced Him with mere men!)
Proverbs 29:2 tells us the sad truth of their folly.
2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
If you think about it, it would be horrible to let society today become immortal! So maybe we can make valuable use of the time we are isolated, quarantined because of the virus to contemplate these things. Maybe use this situation to enter into God's rest
and take a look at God's plan for all creation's restoration
! It's been hidden there all along, waiting in hope man would seek answers from Him
as they see how the world and its god have so badly failed.
Isaiah 66:22 gives us a glimpse of God's plan.
22 “For as the new heavens (one without rebellious angels) and the new earth which I will make shall remain before Me (be eternal),” says the Lord, “So shall your descendants and your name remain.
Galatians 3:27, 29 explains,
27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (That's who they are!)
32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” (The reborn ones.)
10 And God said to him, “Your name is Jacob (means worm); your name shall not be called Jacob anymore, but Israel (means powerful prevailing prince, soldier of God, one that rules with the Almighty!) shall be your name.” So He called his name Israel.
6 And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come
and strike the earth with a curse.” (We must see and understand these things for restoration!)
John 15:5 gives the children of God a very very important law, for them to adhere to, and believe to be successful! This is a law we must always remember!
5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. (Remember, we cannot do anything apart from God that is lasting.)
Revelation 19:12-16 shows us the one all of God's wonderful plans are hinged on
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood (our sacrificial Lamb), and His name is called The Word of God. (Through Him is salvation, restoration and eternal life. Eve turned her back on Him.)
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. (We know this is Jesus.)
Romans 6:4 gives us individual instruction on how to receive what He offers.
4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death (die to the Adamic race), that just as Christ was raised from the dead (resurrected) by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life (we resurrect new creatures).
I Peter 1:23
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed (unlike being born through Adam who dies the new creatures cannot be destroyed) but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides (or lives) forever,
I Peter 1:4 shows us the promises of God are sure and what we can expect as new creatures, as New Israel.
4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away (can't be destroyed), reserved in heaven for you (it's kept for us personally),
Hebrews 12:26-27 shows us why this inheritance is so important!
26 whose voice then shook the earth (at Mount Sinai); but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” (Those in the world better pay attention!)
27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made (by man), that the things which cannot be shaken (what God has created and watches over) may remain. (Forever!)
10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works (our personal career desires) as God did from His.
Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 shows us the real works, those of God that we do from within His rest today, were actually done before creation was completed.
9 That which has been (God's works) is what will be, that which is done is what will be done (by us), and there is nothing new under the sun
10 Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? (No!) It has already been in ancient times before us. (There is no need to worry if we can perform the works to please God either.)
II Timothy 3:17 God will be faithful to prepare us to do the works He has purposed for us.
17 that the man of God may be complete (he will have experienced all the feasts, been fed God's end time knowledge to be prepared for the Kingdom), thoroughly equipped for every good work. (Because He created our works for us today thousands of years ago!)
Romans 8:19-21 tells us all of creation is waiting for this to take place.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. (We just revealed them!)
20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope (in hope that man would see the futility of trying to rebuild the world and desire instead His Kingdom);
21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. (This all takes place as the world crumbles and the Kingdom of God takes its rightful place on earth!)
Here is our hope!
32 “Do not fear, little flock (new species, small in comparison to those of the world), for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
