New Reasons to Justify God and Man
HEADLINES: Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Isaiah 43:25 I, [even] I, [am] he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. 26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified. 27 Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me. 28 Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.
Genesis 4:5-7, NEB. "The LORD received Abel and his gift with favour; but Cain and his gift He did not receive. Cain was very angry and his face fell. Then the Lord said to Cain, "Why are you angry and cast down? If you do well, you are accepted; if not, sin is a demon crouching at the door. It shall be eager for you, and you will be mastered by it".
John 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Matthew 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
Romans 7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
Because God designed our roles and because sin is a demon, no man is responsible for his circumstances and his role on the earth-stage. God is the author, controller and designator of our roles and scripts. He is the Playwright. He assigns the good roles and the bad roles. "I, even I, am He, and there is no god with me: I kill; I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand," Deuteronomy 32:29. In Isaiah 45:6-7; He says, "I am the Lord and none else. I form light and create darkness: I make peace and create evil: I THE LORD DO ALL THESE THINGS". "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done [it]? 7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets", Amos 3:6-7. Psalm of Solomon V:6 (4) For man and his portion (lie) before Thee in the balance; He cannot add to, so as to enlarge, what has been prescribed by Thee. we are born into our roles, Psalm 49:20; Acts 10:9-16. The family of "robot tools" is invisible to human eyes. And God gave them power over man so that we could experience the contrast to God's love and the opposite of God's nature and our own true nature. Devils' power over man's brain and central nervous system is so extensive in some human stage-roles that the spirit has called these living men "spiritually dead" or "asleep". Men are spiritual "zombies", dead to their true nature and ways, but they practice the opposite and contrasting ways and works of devils. This deception is so insidious and the "conditioning" is so complete that man believes what he calls "human nature" is the way we really are. Devils have done a "psyche" job on our generations so that we actually live like the beasts Peter saw in a vision and we think that being this way is "natural". We accept deception too easily. But this is a credit to the power God gave devils over man's mind. God is the "Chessmaster" who moves men from square to square along with devils. All men are worthy of eternal life as children of God. All children must undergo a negative educational sojourn on the earth and then be removed from it to attend "HIGH" school, Isaiah 54:13, 57:16-19. perfection takes place inside Heaven at the Altar, Malachi 3:6,17; Revelation 6:9-11. We are worthy of our birthright, that is to know our heritage and our paternity, to know God and Wisdom and what they expect of us.
ALL MEN are "body cells" of the Father's greater BODY, I Corinthians 12:22-27; Ephesians 3:9-15, 5:30. Our multi-billions have been sent down to the earth-stage according to PLAN in a series of generations for initial experience with the "contrast" to God's order (evil) as we matriculate into eternity. God has sacrificed His body as He said through Jesus when he was His fleshy microphone: "I have the power to lay my life down and the power to take it up again," John 10:17-18. The laying down of God's greater BODY CELLS began with Adam and Eve. The taking up of God's life began with Abel, the first CELL to PASS OVER. Thereafter ALL CELL MEMBERS OF GOD'S GREATER BODY have made the first-life education tour: (a) from God's nursery where "already paired" infant spirits await their turn for display on the earth, (b) to the earth for a short tenure of negative "exercise" with the powers of darkness, Romans 8:18-22, (c) back to heaven again after removal from clay "gift-wrap" or "the body of this death" as Paul called it, Romans 7:24. This circuit is a FIXED LAW OF LIFE as part of the education PLAN REQUIRED FOR ALL "cell-members" of His BODY, II Corinthians 5:1-8. Peter saw this "circuit of the sun" (son, Psalm 19:1-6) in a vision according to the degree of ignorance assigned to men's various roles and symbolized as animals on a sheet, Psalm 49:20; Acts 10:9-16. The "pattern" of God's work is to teach us by use of two contrasting ways. Always one way is opposed by the other. This started at the very top with the Highest Himself before He began the creation. He decided to make peace and joy for Himself by creating a "FAMILY" to assuage His loneliness and suffering. At that point He was all there was in existence, Isaiah 45:18, Secrets XXIV (LBB). His infinite Wisdom determined that order as modes of conduct was necessary for the relationships He envisioned. TWO WAYS ORIGINATED IN HIS OWN MIND FIRST as He thought of all the possible modes of relationship-actions that might be conducted by His "FAMILY". Those actions that were conducive two peace, joy, harmony, and unity were called "GOOD". Those behavior modes that were displeasing to Him and were disruptive, injurious, strife-producing, divisive, and whatever He decided He did not like and did not want done to Him were called "EVIL". So... God is the very first to be confronted by "two ways". They existed in His mind as "ideas" in His thinking process when He was deciding the order in His "FAMILY". This was the early PLANing stage, 2 Esdras 6:1-6.
Before we go any further, let us review God's reasons for causing man to undergo a traumatic "exercise" on His obstacle course where he faces an invisible and formidable robot force, Ecclesiastes 1:13. God's first existence was one of loneliness, suffering, and imprisonment, because He is all there was. There was no place for Him to rest but a continuous wandering in a directionless void of nothingness. He conceived the idea of making a "FAMILY" and a "house" for them in order to make Himself happy, to assure His own peace, and to provide many friends in place of the eons of loneliness that He suffered. Providing "order" and teaching His FAMILY posed a slight problem. He had chosen "GOOD" behavior patterns as opposed to those He rejected, the "evil" ways. A robot force into which the "evil" ways were programmed proved to be the solution. God's PLAN entailed that both His Wife and children should have a similar beginning phase of life like His own as we are made in His image and likeness. Placing man on the obstacle course provides man with an initial "equivalent" first-life of pain, suffering, and imprisonment in a pattern similar to God's early existence. Next we are to experience the two ways physically and MENTALLY as those ways came to God as OPPOSING THOUGHTS. We are also to learn by comparison and contrast while on earth, and in our second phase of life in Heaven. We are to conclude as God did that the "good" is really GOOD and best for us and our "FAMILY", Romans 8:18-22. Only then can our social and interpersonal order be established in peace, joy, and oneness. There is no escape from experiencing the painful and negative first phase of our life, and consequently we ALL must face "two ways".
We have called your Father the Chess Master. And chess is played by MOVING INFLUENTIAL, OPPOSING PIECES from square to square. Out of Himself He created all things that are. There was nothing else with which to create anything except His own "Self". All forces were made by Him very deliberately according to PLAN. The powers of darkness are "planned" tools used by God to provide contrast in His education process. The Creator created the first two negative powers, Satan and Babylon, with natures the very direct opposite of His nature and Mother Wisdom's nature. They are the progenitors of all the powers of darkness, all the negative or black chess pieces on the "earth-board". These oppose the "light pieces", the children of God. The bottomless pit encompasses the earth which is solid ground for us and like a mirage to demons. It is like a gigantic chessboard. Satan is a "would be" dark king on this board, and Babylon is a would be queen among the black pieces, although all of them prefer to think of themselves as "gods". However, a pile of horse manure in a farmer's field is better than that whole dark kingdom. These tiny monsters thought they were worthy opponents capable of engaging God to see who could out man-uever who and eliminate the other one's household. Other devils on military men are knights. Devils on ministers are bishops. Devils on judges are judges and those on lawyers are lawyers and so the roles of the various "dark pieces" go. These are the "principalities and powers of darkness" who wrestle us, Ephesians 6:12. They have dedicated themselves to controlling us and eliminating us, Wisdom of Solomon - Chapter 2.
We must reiterate that God's purpose in sending His children to the earth is to provide them with a negative experience as a first life analogous to His early phase of suffering and imprisonment as He makes us into His likeness, Ecclesiastes 1:13; Romans 8:18-22; II Esdras 7:3-14. The negative experience also serves as a source for comparison and contrast in our education both in this life and in our "perfection" (PERFECT EYE "ON", not "off") when we are removed to Heaven, Malachi 3:17-18; John 12:24; Hebrews 12:22-24. Those below enact the "psychodramas", educational skits which teach them both positive and negative lessons. This is a vicarious education for the student "watchers" above (as eyes) in the classes (wings) of the archangels (teachers), Ezekiel 5:4,15; I Corinthians 4:9. God's PLAN, II Esdras 6:1-6, is to send ALL His children down from Heaven where we were "first born" to the earth "stage" to suffer for a short time and then to return us home for perfection when our tenure on earth is done, Psalm 82:6-8; Ecclesiastes 12:7; II Corinthians 5:1-8. In Psalm 19:1-5 where it speaks of the heavens declaring God's glory, this PLAN is "declared" by the circuit of the sun, an analogy for any SON of God. We arise in this life from a clay womb (eastern horizon); we live our lifetime (traverse the sky); our bodies are buried at death (sundown on western horizon). But that is not the end of the sun because it is rising in another place in the east (man enters Heaven as a spirit at death). This part of the PLAN was enacted before the kingdom of darkness to inform them of His Majesty's purpose in yet another way. "Israel" meaning the sons or princes of God, an analogy for ALL humankind, was chosen to suffer according to their script for a definite time in Egypt. Egyptians acted in role-play the analogy of the kingdom of darkness, while Pharaoh in his role symbolized Satan himself. Moses and Aaron, the deliverers, acted the roles of Christ and the Holy Ghost who must "save" (remove at death) ALL God's children for perfection (higher education and enlightenment), Psalm 87; Isaiah 54:13. In the "real thing" men pass over from earth to Heaven making an exit from their dust (clay body) or "exodus" through their own blood or "Red Sea". The angels (children) above have the duty of leading men below into the "good" portion of their various roles, Psalm 91:11-12. Evil spirits lead men into the negative (wicked) portion of their various roles, Matthew 12:43-45. In the "schoolmaster" analogy, all the children of Israel were delivered from bondage and Egypt, and Israel eventually entered the "promise land," the analogy for Heaven, GOD'S "CASTLE." The Moses-Egypt "stage-act" at that particular time in man's earth history revealed what has been always happening on a grander scale, Ecclesiastes 1:9. IT IS THE LAW OF LIFE (a "law" of God) that each baby spirit in God's nursery is sent down in the flesh as man. He suffers and is then removed for perfection above. This cycle started with Adam's generation and will continue until God completely empties His heavenly nursery of all the baby spirits He created at the very beginning. That done ... then suddenly and dramatically those remaining of the last generation of men will be removed, and the powers of darkness below will be erased by fire (drown in the Red Sea) along with the earth stage, Psalm 37:10; Isaiah 14:12,21-22. Finally even the memory of our negative exercise will be forgotten (erased) and will never again come to mind, Isaiah 54:4, 65:16-19. This PLAN is actively being fulfilled. It started realistically with Abel whether devils and men in their earthly schools (churches, Bible schools, and theological seminaries) have eyes to see or not, and whether or not they are asleep in ignorance or are blind in unbelief. These are the "facts of life." The unbelief of men and devils has no influence on the outcome of the PLAN.
Because "sin is a demon" men are not to be judged by their role-events observed on the earth. God may bless any and all of us as He sees fit regardless of what we do in those roles. He is justified in showing any and all of us kindness when He will, Matthew 5:44-48. God is not to be criticized for blessing men and disregarding the works of devils who use and enslave those men. You may see men involved in great evil deeds and enjoying the protection and blessings of God. Those men are faultless before Him, but their slavemaster devils will certainly receive God's wrath! Men who "judge by appearance and after the sight of the eyes and the hearing of the ears" may deem these men unworthy of blessings, Isaiah 11:1-6. They may see them as evil persons who should be punished for their wicked deeds, Isaiah 54:7-10, 57:16-19. However sin is still a demon no matter what we see men doing, John 5:30, 8:1-12. All men are "holiness to the Lord" as stolen "temple vessels" who must be restored, Jeremiah 18:1-6; Malachi 3:1-3.
We need to apply atonement principles at all times like mature "judges" who understand the principles of the works of God. All men must be seen as faultless at all times and under all "sin" circumstances, even if caught in the very act of sin. I challenge you to be like God, and like Christ while dying on the cross not only in word but also in judgment! Numbers 23:18-23; Micah 6:5 (despite what they did to Moses and God).
Men do need to learn who we are and to conform to our true character. The Teacher will accomplish this in due time. He has blessed us in our various roles. Some cannot understand this and they disagree with it. They do not understand the tenets of God's righteousness, nor His purposes. They judge by appearance and after the flesh and use the thoughts and logic of men. Here is God's righteousness and hence man's all incumbant state of righteousness no matter what devils have men doing. Devils must learn and men must learn that whatever God has "fixed" is permanent and cannot be altered by either.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
Ecclesiastes 7:14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
Jeremiah 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.
Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Isaiah 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. 23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. 24 Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed. 25 In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.
Isaiah 54:17 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.
What men have not understood before the END and the Heavenly Court is revealing now is that ALL men are born into a permanent state of righteousness. Therefore God said "I have not seen iniquity in Israel that were sin" despite what devils had them do to God and Moses in the wilderness, Numbers 23:21. That is why Jesus did not accuse the woman caught in adultery while fully aware of the law of Moses and its penal code. That is also why the "prodigal son" was accepted back without rejection, rebuke, or reprisal and the Father refused to mention his errors to him! This is why the Holy Spirit had Paul write, II Corinthians 5:18 "And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation." And this is why the Holy Ghost wrote through John, 1 John 3:8 "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." This is yet another way of saying, "Sin is a demon" and only devils can commit real "sin". But all human beings are born of God by God and from God into a permanent state of righteousness all their sojourn time on earth. Therefore Jesus cautioned us to "Call no man your Father upon the earth for one is your Father which is in Heaven"! Matthew 23:9. This is man's "glory" and "heritage", Hebrews 2:6-7. And man's mind is greatly influenced by the thoughts of devils to "accuse all the brethren", Genesis 6:5; Isaiah 28:1-5, 55:7-11. We were all born as innocent babes and attacked by devils after we parted the womb, Revelation 12:4,12-13,17. They immediately enslaved and conditioned us to do their works of sin "with rigor", Egyptian style, Ephesians 6:12. I justify God who has blessed us all at some point whether men think we deserve it or not. As Father, Teacher, Creator, Judge, and God, He may bless whom He will in any way He chooses and do good to all even if small-minded men cannot understand it! Matthew 5:44-48. God sent Jesus as a Judge in His own right to show us His righteous judgment with the woman caught in the act of adultery. Your Father, the Supreme JUDGE, is the same way with any act of sin involving any of His children. He treats them all with LOVE, GRACE, and MERCY as in the parable of the "prodigal son". Jesus showed us the compassion of the Father when a woman washed his feet with her tears and anointed his feet while Simon, who represented religious bigots, was critical, Luke 7:34-37. How many of you are "holier than thou" bigots who cannot praise God for having mercy on all those you think should be burned in hell? You "screwballs" are like the "elder brother" in the story of the prodigal son. You cannot understand the Father's LOVE! No man "deserves punishment" for the evil works devils do to us and through us. We are all VICTIMS!! For that reason Jesus prayed for ALL humanity in ALL Generations including those who crucified him, saying, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do!" How many of you could ask God to grant eternal life to those in the process of slaying you? Devils deserve punishment for all the evils they do using man as a tool. However punishment is used as a goad to steer men into making better thought-decisions and to make men agree to better ways. Men need to learn not to agree consciously with devils and their works, Isaiah 28:16-19; Ezekiel 20:32-38. Men deserve to learn better behavior and to receive better leadership, Isaiah 3:12, 9:16.
Seeing God Realistically
God is in control of everything. He is a Teacher who has set us in the roles of our earthly experiences. The good and evil mix in these roles are fixed. No man can enlarge nor diminish what God has determined for him. Two types of vessels were designed by the Teacher to provide "food for thought" for His rising classes of students. All men on earth are in one category or the other. This is how Paul expressed it, Romans 9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. 17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. 18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. 19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory. 2 Timothy 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, [and] prepared unto every good work. Devils can do no more than what has been determined in these roles. The "alternation of day and night" expresses the mixing of good and evil experiences for each man's "exercise in evil", Ecclesiastes 1:13. God uses comparison and contrast and precept and example in His methodology. As the Teacher-Experimenter God "tests" us and teaches us with good and evil episodes. These will be evaluated by the student body in Heaven. God has taken responsibility for the human dilemma by telling us "I do good and evil". Men in the past have not known God, Matthew 11:25-27. He hid Himself! Devils therefore were free to give us a warped and unreal perception of God and what He is doing, Isaiah 45:15. The Bible writers of the past were very simplistic and knew only as much as God wanted them to know about His PLANS and the spirit world. Devils are still hidden from human view and men cannot see God nor angels. Therefore men have failed to know what is really going on and have never understood God's purposes. Very few earthly men know it now.
Men are in didactic psychodramas for the education benefit of those most recently redeemed from among men, the newest students in the Archangels' altering classes. We are "food for thought" which they must evaluate and from which they must learn perfect lessons. They see day (angelic instruction) alternate with night (demonic controllers) and affect man's growth and behavioral attitudes. The Teacher must be viewed as a "teacher". He uses hot and cold, fire and water, acid and alkali, good and evil to "test" or "try" His children as they learn what is the best behavior for us in our huge FAMILY. Men on earth are the "guinea pigs" for the education benefit of those above. Men on earth receive the least benefit from their "exercises" or none at all. They must be perfected after death and after they rise to attend "HIGH" school. Men on earth have failed to understand their kindergarten situation, that this is only the initial step of our certain matriculation into eternity. God designed the earth-stage as the battleground and launching pad for our destined entry into the perfection schools or Altar-ing schools in Heaven. This is the final stage in the glorification process for each spirit God created. Man did not know this nor did devils in the beginning. God first revealed what He is doing and His PLAN for His FAMILY to Enoch. Now it is being detailed in the END in the "GOOD NEWS", Daniel 12:8-9.
Man has a short tenure on the earth-stage. To live here 100 years seems like a long time to men. But that whole period is only a split second on an eternal scale to God! The "alternations of night and day" can affect our feelings for God, our belief in God, our faith in God and our trust in God. Keep in mind that God has predetermined our scenes and the good and evil in those episodes. No man can get out of what is predetermined for him nor can he alter it in any way. What happens everyday in the lives of men unravels as our scripted role-events. The part of the world where one is born determines whether or not he will hear about God or have an opportunity to learn about Him. Loving feelings for God emanate from us when we perceive God as a positive help in the time of need. When and if God answers our prayers and delivers a blessing, men develop faith in Him and love Him. If God does not answer prayers and evil continues unabated, men tend to lose faith; they develop doubt, and belief in God or "the gods" is rejected. Atheism and agnosticism result and men feel that "chance" or "fate" determines what happens to them. If men believe in God or the gods, they tend to blame man's troubles on man's open and secret sins. The place for faith and the climate for belief is determined by the "Experimenter" or Science Teacher. "Faith is a gift from God", Ephesians 2:8. Devils control all unbelief, doubt, and rejection of God, I Corinthians 12:3. As tools of the night-time that is one of their purposes. Desiring man's worship they cause men to worship icon "gods" of clay, metals, and jewels who symbolize them because they are invisible to men, Deuteronomy 32:17. They also persuade men that there is no God.
"SET mE aS a sEAL uPON tHY hEART aND aRM". When I read this passage from Song of Solomon 8:6, I was astounded at the impact of those words in light of what was being voiced to me concerning them. Here God is literally instructing us to use Him as a S(h)EAL(d) for questions concerning one's thoughts and actions. What is a seal? A seal is a printed or embossed symbol of authority. In this case God, the King of kings Himself is a seal. This is an easy thing to grasp in light of the fact that God "dwells in us and walks in us," II Corinthians 6:16. For man's own peace of mind in a world where men have little understanding, God is telling men to use Him as an answer for those who fault them and criticize them. Take the analogy of a "sealed letter". A seal on a letter covers, encloses, and hides the contents from the eyes of the curious and all who might chance to see it. Man's mind has been described as an "epistle" or letter of Christ if he follows Jesus, II Corinthians 3:3. But our discussion is the "epistle of God", a man, which is "sealed". Job 33:14-17 states that "God speaks once in a night dream and seals man's instructions from him". In other words God writes verbally on a man's mind, so that even that person who is now a walking sealed letter, is unaware of the contents!
Now let us look at the meaning of a "sealed arm". An arm is the means by which man is able to do things. They have hands on them, and hence, "the works of a man's hands" is a phrase describing man's activities. A "sealed arm" is indicative of hidden works God has sealed from a man. "Without God a man can do nothing", John 15:5. "So it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth", Romans 9:16. "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do his good pleasure", Philippians 2:13. Paul wrote the full implication of "God as a seal upon the arm". It is of God also to use us for evil!! And this one point is the subject preachers to the man do not preach about, for God "sealed" this knowledge from most of them. Yet the scriptural proof is in the record! Two types of vessels are made by our Potter...."vessels of pleasure" for good works and "vessels unclean" for bad works. Observe Romans 9:15-26 and learn the other side of the truth. Pharaoh and Moses are two examples of both kinds of vessels molded by Potter-God. It is the Potter who determines the use of each type of vessel. Vessels do not become what they want to be ... contrary to what preachers teach. No man can make out of his life what he will or what the preachers will. Back to our point, Pharaoh was to be a scoundrel in this life, a role exclusively tailored for him by the Playwright-God. And God used him so He could show his power and glory and be recognized by men in later generations. Moses on the other hand was to be a vessel of pleasure by which the laws of good behavior would be delivered to men. No man can change his God-given role as God's authority shows, Isaiah 43:19. God illustrated this to Jeremiah using a potter and his work. So each human being is "sealed" in his earthly role whether it is good or evil. That statement may be hard for some "baby" preachers to swallow who have been taught to accuse, judge, and blame men making them responsible for choosing their own way.
At this time we will look at Satan, Babylon, and why God created them. First we must take a look at God. He and Mother Jerusalem, being "one" in spirit as husband and wife, conceived the idea of having children, Proverbs 8:12-31; Mark 8, 10:7, Jubilees 2:2. Because God is self-eternal and all powerful, it was necessary that He should have many multitudes of children to have peace with Himself. Since He has power to commune with all things at once, the multitudes with different personalities would make it as though He and Jerusalem had many friends to take away their loneliness, Wisdom 7:14-29. So good was the idea that completion of it only would give God peace of mind, Secrets 23:3-5, Isaiah 43:6-7. The next problem was how to teach His children of goodness. A shrewd device consisting of a male and a female robot proved to be the solution, Wisdom 12:10-12. I am speaking of Satan and his mother and wife, Babylon. These two were not created as God's children are. The meaning of their parabolic origin in Secrets 26 was given to Ezekiel much later, Ezekiel 28:13, and the meaning of our parabolic origin was told to Enoch and David, Secrets 25 and Psalm 87:5-6. From this we see that these two were "made with hands" from precious stones and metallic ores. Therefore, demons are said to be hard- hearted, Secrets 26:1, Ezekiel 14:4. Is it not paradoxical that demons used jewels and gold for their idols they forced man to make? Daniel 2:31-35. They are attracted to it like a magnet is to iron, Jeremiah 15:12-13; Daniel 2:41. So to make an image and call it God or a god is to drag God's name down to the dust. Therefore, the whole world of devils is called "drag - on", Revelation 12:9, 13:6-7. That dust is the glory of Satan from which he is "made with hands", II Esdras 8:2; Wisdom 2:16, 7:7-9. Really, a metal or stone image is a parable referring to demons, Satan's invisible images, Revelation 13:14, but man is God's image! Genesis 1:26-27.
The WONDERFUL ONE and His WONDERFUL WIFE co-created all the children of light, namely mankind. David said, "I will praise thee; for I AM fearfully and WONDERFULLY MADE ..." Psalm 139:14. All of us are "wonderfully made" in the same way. He continues in verse 16 saying, "in thy book (in your photographic mind) all my members were written which in continuance were fashioned when as yet there was none of them". How can one's head, chest, arms, and legs be continually fashioned before he is conceived? This speaks of the spirit. We were born to Mother Jerusalem in heaven as baby spirits and placed in God's nursery until our times to be placed in wombs on earth throughout the various generations. So the spirit is expressing through David that our spirits are fully formed and known to God prior to the development of our "clay costumes" in the wombs of our earthly mothers when we are sent down. "Zion brought forth all Her children in ONE DAY (the Ancient of Days, Daniel 7:13) and our whole "Family" was born at once before God rested from His labors in the beginning, Isaiah 66:8. You were born a spirit without clay and you will leave as a spirit without clay. In Secrets of Enoch 23:2 Enoch is told, "All the things that I have told thee, we have written (submitted to memory). Sit and write all the souls of mankind, however many of them are born, and the places prepared for them to eternity; for ALL SOULS ARE PREPARED TO ETERNITY, BEFORE THE FORMATION OF THE WORLD." So we were born as immortal spirits, little pieces of the ETERNAL WONDERFUL ONE before the earth was made. Each one of us is older than this world regardless as to which generation we are born in down here. "What is man that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him? Thou (your Mother) madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedest him with glory and honor," Hebrews 2:6-7. The answer is we are immortal spirits planted in clay, replicas of the WONDERFUL ONE! In Secrets XXX:12 God said, "I conceived a cunning saying to say, I created man from invisible (spirit) and visible nature (the body of flesh), of both are his death (the body dies) and life (the spirit is immortal) and image (both the clay and the spirit are shaped like God), he knows speech like some created thing, small in greatness and again great in smallness, and I placed him on earth A SECOND ANGEL, honorable, great and glorious and I appointed him as ruler to rule on earth and to have my Wisdom, and there was none like him of all my existing creatures." (Do you think of yourself, or any man, or ALL men that way?) You probably do not realize the extent of majesty and honor God has given the average bum sleeping in the alleys, or the drunk who passes out on the street, or the starving child in Africa. You do not see their glorious spirit imbedded in their "clay costume". You cannot see that they are SECOND ANGELS ... "fearfully and WONDERFULLY MADE." But you will see for yourself when you PASS OVER! Luke 20:36.
We must ALL be reconciled in order to be ONE big happy FAMILY. Reconciliation means to be at peace and harmony again. It is a two-way street. God must reconcile Himself with us and we must reconcile ourselves with Him. We must be at peace and we must harmonize with God over the negative "sin" experience in the earth. Many "blame God" for the nightmare life on earth. They are unhappy with the way He has regulated our world as "God"! But God is not angry with us because of our activities in this life despite what you might believe to the contrary. It is true that He is in control of everything. And as fast as men rise, He has been teaching them His reasons for putting us through such a horrible "exercise", Ecclesiastes 1:13; Romans 8:18-22. Paul wrote a great statement about reconciliation in II Corinthians 5:18-19. This has to do with ATONEMENT where man considers himself guilty and at fault regarding his "agreements with hell and covenants with death", Isaiah 28:18. "ATONEMENT" assuages the minds and guilt-ridden consciences and brings them peace and release as it heals them! But we must also forgive God---those of us who are angry with Him for doing things the painful and hurtful way---in order to be reconciled to Him.
