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!”

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..)

Sabbath And The Way

In Philippians Paul talks about the believers in Philippi being pressured to accept the doctrine that one has to follow the rules of the law of Moses in order, to be saved.

The subtle difference of course is how “love is the fulfilling of the law”, so those who are saved and born again – “transplanted from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light” follow the law of Moses in Spirit, just as Jesus pointed out in His ‘Sermon on the Mount’, it’s not really good enough to not murder, but don’t be angry at someone – or someones – without cause, i.e. disliking them.

The one’s insisting the seat of Jesus (who IS salvation) be shared with the seat of Moses, at their authority, Paul said, were acting like dogs. How do dogs act? They are always pushing each other to be leader of the pack, to be dominant.

Jesus said that’s the way the world is and believers should not be that way.

Also in his letter to the Philippians, Paul wrote there was only one way to remain pure and blameless – “I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding, that you would distinguish those things that are suitable, that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ”.

“…the washing with water through the word, to present to Himself a glorious church without spot or wrinkle or any such blemish, but holy (including whole) and blameless.” – Ephesians 5:27-28

Sealed Foreheads?  of Revelation 7:1-4, and 9

After this – the opening and first appearance of Seal 6 – I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back its four winds so that no wind would blow on land or sea or on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, with the seal of the living God. And he called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: “Do not harm the land or sea or trees until we have sealed the foreheads of the servants of our God.” And I heard the NUMBER of those who were sealed, 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel… ..After this I looked and saw a multitude too-large-to-count, from every nation and tribe and people and tongue..

….Revelation 9:4 – “…only those who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads..”

 

Christmas

There’s two things in my life which make me wonder if at heart, I am still to some degree, a Pagan. (Lol)

One being I love the phrase Holy Ghost. I don’t use it, but often want to.. It’s outdated I guess.. people wouldn’t know what to think.. lol.

The other is my Christmas tree with its colorful lights. Reminds me of stained glass.. the only stained glass in my life right now.

Do I have to give these two things up? I don’t worship the tree.. or decorate it in the name of a strange God. I’m not even thinking of a supposed guy named ‘Santa’, but to be honest, our Father in heaven, in many ways, reminds me of the fictional Santa.. After all, “God is love” 1 Jn.4:8.

It’s kind of like the Sabbath, I think. I love to observe the original Sabbath, especially as it begins on Friday evening. And it may indeed be the superior thing. But I don’t think it’s a commandment for Gentile believers, per the Jerusalem council in Acts chapter 15.

So for now, I’ll leave it at that. Should the Spirit of God say otherwise, I pray I have ears to hear. Always!

God bless your coming year!

DOA for the DOA

When we realize how Jesus died at the very hour of the Passover sacrifice, was shut into the tomb as Unleavened Bread began, and rose three evenings later as Firstfruits was beginning, it’s not so long a stretch to realize the pattern of His long second advent is revealed in the pattern of Israel’s ancient Autumn Holy Days — of Trumpets (10days later is) Day Of Atonement (and 5days later is) Tabernacles — Representing the three peaks of our Lord’s second advent — His Return (then His millennial rule of a 1000 years, followed by) the Resurrection of Those not Saved (and then the Judgment, followed by) the “All in All” event when “All Things are Made New” and “God will now tabernacle with mankind upon Earth.. wherein righteousness is to dwell”.

Making it Day of Atonement, for the doa, the initially ‘dead on arrival’ (having risen “still in their sins”). [Lev.23]

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

 

 

Metaphor

When Jesus “set His face” to Jerusalem, and was determinedly headed to Jerusalem, the disciples “were afraid” and worried. He’d told them that in Jerusalem they would beat and crucify Him, but they “did not understand”. I wonder if they thought He might be talking in metaphor? Which they thought because they were afraid?

When it comes to bible prophecy, the more afraid, the more important to listen (hear and heed). But who can tell the landmarks Jesus told, when there’s so much senseless babble going on about it? (As with all things! I no longer think Rev. 12:15 is one flood, lol.)

Saving The Spirit

As we know, in Paul’s first letter to the Corinthian believers, he addressed the issue of a believer who was having relations with his stepmother. Paul told the church to hand this one over to Satan so his flesh can be destroyed! So his spirit be saved in the day of the LORD.

Most commentaries agree, this was a banning a person out of the church. There being the two worlds, church and non-church.

Now the ET/wrongly translated belief, seems to prefer to think of this as hell. And Satan is to be the ruler of an afterlife torment pit or cavern, gleefully burning souls alive forever in flames of undying agony. Turning them over with his pitchfork!

But.. what about this in Paul’s second letter?
So instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. – 2 Cor. 2:6-11 They were to welcome him back into their group. And his “body” was intact. But some of his carnal character had hopefully (!) been overcome.

In context:
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+2%3A6-11&version=NLT

I don’t believe pitchfork is mentioned anywhere in the scriptures. Even the verse “winnowing or threshing the wheat” would be more of a tossing the wheat into the air so the chaff blows away.

…And then maybe, in order to make fine flour, grinding it with a stone? And baking a nourishing loaf of bread which fills the home with warmth and a very pleasant aroma?
