Lake Of Fire As Earthly Prophecy And Results

Jesus said, “You must be born again.. You shall receive the gift the Father has promised.. The Holy Spirit will come upon you.. I will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire ..Flames like tongues of fire came upon them.. Everyone will be salted with fire..”

Paul wrote – “..Not as though I am already perfect.. but this mortal must put on immortality.. at the last Trump(et)* and those who have fallen asleep in Christ will rise first, then those who are alive and remain.. And so shall we meet the Lord at His coming” (at His epiphaneai – appearing/epiphany/glorious display). [The Greek word meaning “having fallen asleep” #G2837 occurs three times in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-15, and eighteen times in the NT, thirteen of those times referring to being dead/nekros-without life.]

Prophet Zechariah wrote – “In that day his feet will stand on Mount of Olives, and it will split in half by a great earthquake..”

..The tares having gathered to Armageddon, and armies surrounding Israel(?).. A great lake of fire.. in the valley of Har`geddon called Gehenna.. (After smaller ones were “loosed”. All by man, see Rev. 7:1, 13:13, and the last words of 6:4.)

Yahweh, the Father says (much later) in Revelation 21, “Behold I make ALL things new.. in the which the heavens and Earth.. the elements will melt with a furious heat (LOF).. I will now “Tabernacle* with man on Earth made new, in heavens made new. The lion will eat straw like the ox and the bear will graze with the cow”.. Paradise locked into place, because love will rule every heart.. [“God is love” and “love never fails”! He is Life and He “is perfect” therefore anything off course can only be loosed.. and fade away [#G1601].. The result of missing the mark is death. But “God is the savior of all”. And “He knows how to keep the un” – not yet – “righteous for correction upon Day of Judgment* (when) ALL the ends of Earth will remember” – Hebrew word, “will come to their senses – and turn to the LORD, and ALL families of the nations will worship/rejoice before Him” ..”Every tongue will – wholeheartedly (the original Greek) confess `Jesus is Lord`! —- I, Yahweh have sworn by oath that every knee shall bend and every tongue swear allegiance.. A river of life flowing from the throne.. and all manner of fruit trees.. The time of the singing of birds is come!”

Poof! Hell Is Gone

You’ll never know anyone more generous and kind, than the Heavenly Father. In fact 1 Jn.4:8 says He is love! And then there’s this, if He wasn’t perfect, He too would fade away. Perfect makes no mistake(s). And can lose nothing. Why did He put innocent Adam and Eve in the little garden well after the first bound to occur rebel thought occurred? He knew (of course) what was in the adversary’s heart! But see how all are taking this unavoidable journey (and lesson) all together, at once. Unavoidable if there’s to be thinking and reasoning ability! You see, if God is life itself – and what else could be? And He “is perfect” (Mt.5:48) then anything in thought, word or deed that differs with Him, is imperfect, the opposite of life!

– So the remedy was built in from the beginning, “Christ crucified at the foundation of the world” (Rev.13:8). But as a loving father, He is letting choices, other than His, exist and run their course. Even though now there is suffering, there is death, there are wars.. All of which He, as life itself, lives through! Why put Himself through all that? So all will fully understand what is, and tends to life, and what is, and tends to death. Good from evil! How are you going to have an enduring paradise (for all) if there is any rational creature that does not fully understand that? Understand what? That He is Life. And no one can have life apart from Him – and, His perfection. Perfection is life. Missing the mark (translated sin) is death. All need to know it can never work! Go not that way!

– Jesus tells us, via the parables, that humanity is the Father’s garden. It’s a crazy garden! The weeds far outnumber the wheat! But in the ‘end’ even the weeds will become wheat! Because Jesus said He will draw all to Him, Jn.12:32.

– But that doesn’t mean this circus (travesty?) won’t play out to the conclusion. After all, that’s the proof! The conclusion of this lesson of good and evil. We’re told all about that conclusion. The nations will “make war” (Rev.12:17 w/ Mt.23:39; Rev.16:14,15,16) against Jerusalem (Israel). The weeds will gather to Armageddon. Which will mushroom into a (manmade) lake of fire (prophecy thought to be, you guessed it, ‘hell’). Jesus returns, gathering all believers of all time to Himself, to meet Him as He is arriving, and on that day His feet will stand upon Mount of Olives which will split in two via a great earthquake (Zechariah 14:4). And thus the prophesied Millennium of Jesus begins. The “rest of the dead come not back to life until after the thousand years” (Rev.20:6).

– His first advent, as we know, fulfilled the ancient Spring Holy Days. He was the Passover Lamb dying the death/annihilation/lack of life all were under (1 Jn.2:2) a strong enough image to pierce every self tormenting conscience! He is the Unleavened Bread of Life, and the Firstfruits of God. I.e, the three Spring Holy Days are prophecy of, and represent His first advent/visit. Along with Pentecost seven weeks later, when He baptized the first believers with flames of fire. God is that fire!

– Doesn’t that mean His long second advent – the three main peaks of – will follow the pattern of, and are prophesied by the three Fall Holy Days of – Trumpets (of Rev. and His return), and 10 days later (1000 years later) Day of Atonement, and 5 days later (500 years later) Tabernacles! Notice how Rev.21, verses 1 and 3, say “..a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.. the tabernacle of God is with mankind, and He will dwell (tabernacle) with them..”

– “The bear will graze with the cow and the lion will eat straw like the ox.” (Isaiah 11:7)

In review and summary, the pattern plays out like this, the Lord’s return and the millennium of a thousand years; then “the judgment” of 500 years. Which is the only time Ps.22:27 can be fulfilled. Which says “all the ends of Earth will remember/take thought, and turn to the Lord, and all families of the nations will worship/rejoice before Him!” Thus, all names found “in the book of life”! ..Like ancient collective Day of Atonement, anyone “not afflicting their soul on that day will be cast out from among the people! But seriously, after rising from their dusty grave (translated ‘hell’) and living through the judgment (great day of review) who’s not going to “believe”?

– Isaiah 45:21-24 says – “..Who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I the Lord? There is no other God but me. A just God. And a Saviour.. Look to me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth.. I have sworn, by my own name! I have spoken the truth, and I will never go back on my word: Every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will declare allegiance to me. The people will declare, `The Lord is the source of all my righteousness and strength.` And all who were angry with him will come to him.”

– “With God nothing is impossible!” (Luke 1:27) “He is love” and “love never fails!” 1 John 4:8 and 1 Corinthians 13:8 & see 15:22(-28). The Holy Days – Leviticus 23.

 

The Great Day of The Heavenly Court

Why do so many believe a person is judged and goes to either heaven or ‘hell’ at their death? That the angels carry the (immortal) souls of the good, the believer/follower to heavenly paradise at their passing. And I suppose the demons carry away – to the fiery center of the Earth, is one belief!  The (immortal) soul of all nonbelievers, even those never told about Jesus or perhaps even of Yahweh?

Maybe it’s because it’s become “all about us”. “Judgment Day” is all about me. The visions of The Great White Throne and myriads of myriads gathered before Him, is referring to each individual’s judgment day at their death? This was the teaching of the nations. Which reached its epiphany in Greece, and subtly made its way into the scriptures via translation by humans living in culture very much steeped in those beliefs. (And again through putting the scripture in a box labeled, nothing/not much literal?)

“All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD. All the families of the nations will bow down before Him.” – Psalm 22:27

It sure is good to know that! Have a great day!

 

How I Know The Earth Is Round

Have you heard of the flat Earth theory? Besides the evidence of my eyes, according to CHRISTIAN Universalism the number of brothers and sisters we will have is just about infinite. You know why? Because it’s a circle of people, what with being on a round planet. So the circle never ends.. just an Easter thought. (1Tim.4:10; Jn.12:32; 1Jn.4:8; 1Cor.13:8 & for scholars, 1Cor.15:22–>28; Rev.21:1-5 w/ 2Pet.3:12-13; 2Pet.3:10-11 w /2Thess.1:7-8, lof manmade not the myth..)

Rays of God

There are rays of the Lord – from the Lord – which shine down to us. And there’s other rays, we can call them dark rays.

The scripture tells us the angels of God are messengers.

If there is no literal fallen angel/heavenly being, and the one third who followed him – then this is far worse than I ever thought! For if the darkest deeds done by man have proceeded only from within, WITHOUT help or encouragement, or speeding along by dark entities, well, I find that more alarming yet!

Someone could say, oh it must be the Lord then.. Really?

Maybe this idea is an offshoot of the idea, a truth, that nothing occurs without God being in control. And of course He is! For He “is perfect” (Mt. 5:48). And perfect makes no mistake(s)! But allowing choices and doings other than His, does not mean He approves all things and, or, is the doer of all things. It is MORE powerful to allow things to run their course.. and in the ‘end’ have all things fall into place exactly as you will it!

The Bible, according to the original language, says the angels are messengers – not messages.

 

The Key

Besides the key of the solution to all things being Jesus.. more of Jesus, there’s a tiny key to the scripture. A lot of folks cannot stand it, that there is violence and, or judgment in the Bible.

First of course, it’s history. Truth cannot include a white washed history! But what about the simple idea that “the wages of sin is death”? Why such a harsh sentence? Well, here’s another, perhaps more accurate way to say it, “the result of missing the mark – (the Greek) – the result of being imperfect is death”.

Why is this? Is it because God is mean? I know there’s some holy sounding answers given, but I don’t think they answer the question.

Have you ever thought of it like this? That God, the creator, is life itself? If “in the beginning.. God..” what else would or could be the the very breath and force of life?

And the scripture tells us that the heavenly Father “is perfect” – Mt.5:48.

Life is ever moving. If God is Life + Perfection, then perfection equals ever more life. But life + imperfection = death! The moving of life toward death. Why was that tree of knowing good and evil in the garden then?! Was God trying to trick everyone?

Maybe He was.. Maybe He wants all His children and angels to understand what is good from evil. What is life from death. And all to learn it together, all at once, nice and tidy.

After all, it does say the remedy was “built in from the foundation/beginning of the world”. God being life, He is salvation! And all are reconciled to God/life through Jesus. Don’t forget or overlook, how Jesus said He will draw ALL to Himself.

Even the prophesied fiery apocalypse.. Will be man’s doing. Judgment being, for the most part, results and consequences. How coincidental! The fiery prophecies, and man’s modern capabilities! Of course medieval (or dark ages!) minded translators turned this into the ancient worldly myth of after life torment (for bad citizens, lol). But of course we cannot judge them too terribly harshly, as man didn’t have such fiery potential back then. How could they know..

But what about other things, like the flood? Key – it was an act of mercy. Can’t believe that? God doesn’t go into a lot of detail.. defending Himself or anything. Nope. But the truth is there if we want to know. The verse says every thought of every person was continually evil. So God ended it.

And the Canaanites, those nations who were practicing child human sacrifice, whom God judged?

The key to understanding?

When next they awaken after man’s ages, and “after the thousand years”/the millennium of Jesus, it will be THE great Day of Atonement, called Judgment ‘Day’, wherein Jesus will continue the work of drawing all to Him. And within which “all the ends of Earth will remember – in the Hebrew – will come to their senses and turn to the LORD, and all families of the nations will worship/rejoice before Him”. (Psalm 22:27)

“The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who saves, He will rejoice over you with gladness, and quiet you by His love. He will rejoice over you with singing.. For He has loved with an everlasting love and with lovingkindness does He draw..” Zephaniah 3:17 and Jeremiah 31:3.

Being life, He lived through it all.. every war, etc.. There’s a verse in Isaiah that says all mankind will look upon the dead bodies and be abhorred(!)

Did God kill those dead bodies? What happened?

Perhaps a clue about the return of Jesus – in fire and with His angels, during (fiery) Armageddon – is said to be “lest all perish”. (Mt.24:22; 2 Thess.1:7-8)

The key to His allowing all this disaster to occur? And how all is allowed to come to ruin? Both individual and also collective!? The ruin, the perishing – is not ‘forever’.

It’s as supremely simple as that. “As in Adam all die, in Christ all will live.” (1 Cor.15:22)

“God is love” and “love never fails!” (1 Jn.4:8 and 1 Cor.13:8)

 

What Is the Lake of Fire?

In Luke 17:29, the Lord says, “as it was in the days of Noah.. and in the day Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed all.”

The word “rained” is #G1026 – “moisen, rain, send rain”

verse – https://biblehub.com/interlinear/luke/17-29.htm

rain – https://biblehub.com/greek/1026.htm

moisten, wet, rain, water…

I think it is true that,

“Our God is a consuming fire!” Purity consumes impurity.. Life consumes death.. Light, darkness.. Good, evil

And ( & + )

Peter wrote – “the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. (vs.11) Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, (rev.7:9?) (12)looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! (13) But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens, and, a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.” — And love will rule! — 2 Peter 3:10-11;12-13

…”The bear will graze with the cow, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. – Is.11:7
