We Make God Happy!
KJV Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Ode of Solomon 8:14 Love me with affection, ye who love! 15 For I do not turn away my face from them that are mine; 16 For I know them and before they came into being I took knowledge of them, and on their faces I set my seal: 17 I fashioned their members: my own breasts I prepared for them, that they might drink my holy milk and live thereby 18 I took pleasure in them and am not ashamed of them: 19 For my workmanship are they and the strength of my thoughts: 20 Who then shall rise up against my handiwork, or who is there that is not subject to them? 21 I willed and fashioned mind and heart: and they are mine, and by my own right hand I set my elect ones: 22 And my righteousness goeth before them and they shall not be deprived of my name, for it is with them. 23 Ask, and abound and abide in the love of the Lord, 24 And yet beloved ones in the Beloved: those who are kept, in Him that liveth: 25 And they that are saved in Him that was saved; 26 And ye shall be found incorrupt in all ages to the name of your Father. Hallelujah.
Oh, the power of LOVE and GRACE! My, oh my, what it can do! . He reaches down His finger of love to every deathbed and gravesite! "Oh death, where is your sting and oh grave where is your victory?" I Corinthians 15:55. Jesus hangs out at every deathbed to do his "salvage and redemption" work. The Spirit said it most beautifully in these words: KJV Hosea 13:14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
There is a little song that applies here, and I am sure many of you know it. It says, "Can't nobody do me like Jesus!" And in the words of a certain former fat and rotund comedian (Jackie Gleason), "How sweet it is"! Do you know the love and understanding of the preachers in the churches could not and would not do this for each and every man? They are extremely "short of the glory", mere midgets when compared to the "fulness of the stature of Christ", Romans 3:23; Ephesians 4:13. While refusing to enter into the Father's joy and JOIN the feast, they are arguing with God. They are using the "letter of law" as they lobby God in vain to punish and burn the "prodigals" who die in sin! 2 Corinthians 3:6-12. Your Father has REFUSED TO HEED THEM! God is our First Hero! Now check out our other Hero, the Son! Behold the love of the REAL JESUS! He stoops at each grave and he "ransoms ALL from the power of the grave and he redeems each one from death". There, Jesus confers the "free gift of righteousness" to each one. It is "the best robe" given to each "prodgal", Luke 15:22; Revelation 19:8. What each dying one did in his lifetime has absolutely no bearing nor influence on this Saviour, because he removed all their sin! Jesus "will lose nothing"! John 6:39. You will notice that the colored portion of our HEADLINES in Italics says, "ye shall be found incorrupt in all ages to the name of your Father", Romans 5:15-21. And now you know how and why it happens to every man regardless of the kind of hellish life that devils put men through! JESUS sets every slave and captive free! Isaiah 49:24-26, 51:12-14; Luke 4:17-21. How sweet he is!
KJV Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
KJV Jeremiah 50:20 In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for (by demons and preachers in the churches), and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.
You have a REAL high priest who knows how to love. He is higher, finer, and mightier than all the "hireling" frauds behind pulpits in the churches that preach hellfire and brimstone for those who die unrepentant! You have heard a song honoring the greatness of his majesty and grace. It is called "Fairest Lord Jesus"! . so much fairer than the "elders son" preachers who claim they know him and do not! The love of the preachers is a "joke" by comparison. You have a royal priest, whom I serve, and it gives me great pleasure to introduce him to you just as he is! His name is JESUS! Hey, preachers! "You know not what manner of spirit you have, for the Son of Man is come to save men, not to destroy them (burn men with fire), Luke 9:51-56. If you die unrepentant and reject Jesus while in this life, he will not burn you in hellfire! But you will be redeemed and then have a visit with Pater "Potter"! You will get a guaranteed "make-over"!
Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. 26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. 27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Hellfire and brimstone preachers are agents of the Beast, Revelation 13:5. All of them "serve for mammon" as "hirelings of men", Luke 16:10-13; John 10:11-13. They do not know Jesus, no matter how they claim that God sent them. A "god" did send them, but it was the "man of sin who sits in the temple of God (a man's body and also "the church") showing himself that he is God", 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3.
Our Father spent billions of years being alone in what would be isolation and solitary confinement in human terms. This was His prison and the price He had to pay for being "ALL there is". He had neither resting-place nor solid ground, as we know it, no "matter". There was no one to talk to just Him! That was unconscionable misery! Finally God had a dream of creating a wife and a family and an exotic house for them where He could thrill them all and show them what He can do. His goal is to make this dream come true or to make it "real"! The major problem was to teach all of us acceptable social behavior for royalty and family. God decided to use comparison and contrast as well as precept and example in His teaching process. This is why the earth-stage was created and the negative "android" spirits, Lucifer and Babylon, parents of all demons. The earth and this first-life experience with evil are just the first phase of God's education program. The second phase occurs in Heaven after death, when we experience absolute good. We are perfected when we learn that God's ways, what we call holiness and righteousness, are best for us and it becomes our nature. The earthly life is only the first step of our matriculation into eternity. The contrast life to the earth experience always occurs after death. The hellfire and brimstone doctrines the Dragon gave the preachers to "accuse the brethren" is totally out of line and contrary to God's work for His family. This earthly life that men undergo is only an educational "exercise" with contrast and it is designed by God for every individual in His family. After each man finishes his stint on the earth-stage, he is immediately removed to the "perfection" phase in Heaven. Peter's vision reveals this law for all human life! Psalm 49:20; Acts 10:9-16,28. Peter's vision shows the end of ignorant men is very different from what the "hireling" and "mammon-loving" preachers have taught you! Have you not heard? Do you not understand? "If I be lifted up from the earth, I WILL draw all men unto me! I will ramsom them from the power of the grave and I will redeem them from death". The one who spoke those words (Jesus) has exposed the doctrines of the churches on the fate of man at death as pathetic and very bad guesswork. Choose your shepherd. Either Jesus is right or the peachers under the Dragon's claws are right about the fate of man at death. Both simply cannot be right! Okay reader! The choice is yours to make.
Your Father uses "impression" to endear us to Him! He is very wise. He wants us to like Him and to love and adore Him. He does things to make that happen. To dip us in hell where we are transformed into "beasts" by a mad-monster "potter" (Lucifer) and then to draw us out and make us into angels is a dramatic display of His skills as the good "Potter", Psalm 49:20; Jeremiah 18:1-6. This is one of the most joyous events in Heaven! All those former "prodigal sons and daughters" reaped daily from the earth are drawn up and transformed (remolded) into the glory of the angels, complete with a new name, new face and body, and a new mode of conduct. The gates of Heaven are open 24-hours a day so that the forces of humanity may enter the Kingdom, Isaiah 2:1-3, 60:2-12; Revelation 21:21-26. Earthlings might say, "It's like magic!" Therefore all the Heavenly Hosts cannot stop praising our Father for renewing more brothers and sisters and future friends and neighbors! This is what "delivery from (spiritual) Egypt (this earth)" is all about, Hebrews 12:22-24. "Marvel not that I say unto you, You must be born again". We love and adore God for His ability to create and make change instantly. If you have ever seen a magic show and watched the audience, you have an idea of how God affects His children up there. They are Watchers and they watch with rapt attention and focus. God is very skillful in combining joy with work! Educating a man in spiritual matters while he lives on earth is a daunting challenge, but when the "Potter" gets him upstairs, the transformation is amazingly easy! No one below can accuse anyone upstairs of anything! No one up there has an earthly name and no one acknowledges having lived on earth. No one ever asks! Guess who are the only ones proclaiming Lucifer a "winner" in this first phase of training for all the children? It is the preachers and the churches that say, "Lucifer has damned most of humanity to hell" with his family. And they say this boldly even after reading what Paul taught us, Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Now I ask you, the reader, "Who sent the preachers to teach the reverse of what Paul taught, and they expect you to swallow it and say, "Amen"?" Is it God or is it the devil? Is this not further proof that "the saints have been overcome by the Dragon" and they are crushed beneath his claws? Daniel 7:21-22, 8:8-12; Revelation 13:4-7,11. Christians are so blind and dead they cannot tell when they are holding a lie! How many of you drank that Dragon spittle from the preachers? Revelation 12:15-17. It is time to vomit! Let it go!
Matriculating Us Gives God Joy
After all the suffering God endured, it is making the FAMILY "real" that gives him joy. For God there is no more loneliness, because He has company and companions. There is no more horror at seeing nothing, hearing nothing, and being around nothing! In fulfilling His dream there is so much excitement. Look at these words for those of you who were taught that punishment and death to mankind is one of God's objectives:
KJV Ezekiel 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.
Ezekiel 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
Because "Pharaoh (Lucifer) refused to let men go so they can serve God", He sent Jesus, the Atoning Lamb, to every deathbed and gravesite to "ransom and redeem" each dying person, to confer the free gift of righteousness, and to draw all "prodigals" to the FAMILY REUNION Feast in Heaven.
KJVI Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Hosea 13:14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
KJV Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel.
Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
From these texts we see that God has no pleasure in the death of men! Sadness and loss is not His end game. Therefore He sends Jesus to do his thing at each deathbed and gravesite. Finally God tells us, "I WILL do my pleasure and give you the Kingdom"! Now who is right, God or the preachers who teach differently? The choice is yours!
Now that you understand what happens at death, you are ready to look at two parables. You must understand that the conversation with Ezra was under auspices of the first Covenant where God withheld certain secrets to be revealed later in time. Ezra's conversation cannot be understood without Jesus' keys. Our discussion is how God gets joy out of delivering us from every snakepit and chokehold. First you must see Jesus' keys.
KJV Matthew 13:37 He answered and said unto them, he that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one]; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Now look at Ezra's conversation with the angel:
2 Esdras 8:37 He answered me and said, "Some things you have spoken rightly, and it will come to pass according to your words. 38 For indeed I will not concern myself about the fashioning of those who have sinned, or about their death, their judgment, or their destruction;39 but I will rejoice over the creation of the righteous, over their pilgrimage also, and their salvation, and their receiving their reward. 40 As I have spoken, therefore, so it shall be. 41 "For just as the farmer sows many seeds upon the ground and plants a multitude of seedlings, and yet not all that have been sown will come up in due season, and not all that were planted will take root; so also those who have been sown in the world will not all be saved." 42 I answered and said, "If I have found favor before thee, let me speak. 43 For if the farmer's seed does not come up, because it has not received thy rain in due season, or if it has been ruined by too much rain, it perishes.
Verse 39 of the Ezra conversation reveals that God rejoices over the matriculation of mankind. Jesus gives the "free gift of righteousness" to all taking their last breath! My point of concern is verse 41, "those who have been sown in the world will not all be saved". You need Jesus' key to avoid confusion over what this means. From Jesus' key, we find that two kinds of seed are sown in the field. An enemy sneaked in at night and sowed tares. The angel told Ezra, "Not all those sown will be saved". God will say to the reaping angels in the harvest, "Gather the wheat (human beings) into my barn, but drop the tares (demons on their bodies) back into the pit. Jesus is the greater light, and Ezra could not have understood what the angel was really saying to him without those keys Jesus spoke hundreds of years later. My point in this little exercise is not only to show you how God links parables like niches and knobs in puzzle pieces - to stress to you 2 Esdras 8:39 but I will rejoice over the creation of the righteous, over their pilgrimage also, and their salvation, and their receiving their reward. 40 As I have spoken, therefore, so it shall be
Matriculating us as the Family Hero and Saviour gives God great delight, and it endears us to Him! Leaving this earth is like being removed from a septic tank that one fell into. All are drawn up and out, washed up and perfumed! And believe me, all those former "sinners" (prodigals) appreciate it! As Jesus asked Simon, "Who will love Him more"? Simon answered, "Those He forgave the most"! Luke 7:41-43. All human beings are God's Body "cells". There will be no destruction of any human being in hellfire like Dragon-breath preachers have been teaching. God will not destroy Himself (His cells) to assuage the Dragon and his crony preachers. The "natural death of men" does not give God joy! Instead, "I will do all my pleasure". Therefore you will find Jesus at every deathbed and graveside doing His thing! Death has no sting and graves are signs of victory for men!
Isaiah 54:6 For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God. 7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. 8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer. 9 For this [is as] the waters of Noah unto me: for [as] I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. 10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee. 11 O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, [and] not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. 12 And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones. 13 And all thy children [shall be] taught of the Lord; and great [shall be] the peace of thy children. 14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. 15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, [but] not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. 16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness [is] of me, saith the Lord.
KJV Jeremiah 31:3 The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, [saying], Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
KJV John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
We are created in the image of His eternity. We, our spirits, cannot be destroyed. We make God's creation and His own life worthwhile, and "saving" us fulfills His joy. Marvel not preachers when I tell you, "God will do all His pleasure", not the displeasure Lucifer wants and the judgments you preach! God is overcome by His own kindness toward us, not the mean viciousness of demons and preachers! When will you stop lying on God about what He will do to human beings in the judgment?!
