Making the Everlasting  Gospel Loud And Clear!

WELCOME

Garden of Eden Everlasting Gospel_edited

So please dear ones, confess you sins to God, repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and be baptized if you have an opportunity, and obey the Law of God by the Holy Spirit's help! Then go and willfully sin no more!

        God bless you immensely in Jesus name, and welcome!  I  pray that you are all as safe and well as you can be, wherever you are in the world, by God's grace. I'm very glad that you found your way here and believe what you will find here will be blessing to you and your loved ones in many ways. I must first declare that this not MY website, It belongs to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I am simply His servant by His grace through Jesus Christ. The Last Shofar is created to be a repository of a vast collection of reading/study material, audio books, and various video helps. They are here that you may be knowledgeable, forewarned and prepared to meet our God, King of kings and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. There really is no time to waste, Our burdens of  sin, shame and character faults must be brought to Jesus NOW. For very soon it will be to late and you may find yourself doomed. We are living in very exciting times and yet very solemn times, because the Lord Jesus is very soon to come. Are you ready? Am I ready? Warnings of every type throughout creation,and around the world have been calling us all from dead works to repentance from sinful ways, and have been going forth for many, many, many years now. The gravity and urgency of such warnings are no less solemn and urgent today than in the days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah(Genesis 6:5-13, 18:20 )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lord Jesus said the world would be as it was in the days of Noah and the days of Lot: "And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."(Luke 17:26-30)  It is all happening now at an alarming pace!

        The Lord Jesus died a very ignominious death for the sins of the world.(John 18-19:37) Jesus died for you and your loved ones, for me and my loved ones, for your neighbor and their loved ones, and so on. Yet by comparison few have heeded the warnings from the Living God to turn from their wicked ways, repent and believe the Gospel. It is my hope and prayer that you will be stirred up and caused to study God's word and  repent of all sinful ways, believe and obey the Gospel, and flee from the wrath of God which is to fall upon the wicked, into the loving arms of the Lord Jesus Christ who is Lord, God, Saviour, Creator, King of kings, and Redeemer of all mankind/womankind.

         To repent means: "#3340, to change one's mind, i.e to repent, to change one's mind for better, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one's past sins." The Living God loves you all, no matter who you are,what you have done, the circumstances of your life, or what you are going through in life right now.: "Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.  "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." (Jeremiah 31:3) We must all repent of our wicked and immoral ways, of lying, stealing, violence, deceit, murder, intemperance, pride, selfishness, arrogance, spiritualism, witchcraft of every kind, apathy towards our fellow man, sexual immorality, all idolatry (which also means the worship of ones spouse, children, friends or relatives, and ones own opinion above the Living God)  and be washed in the Blood of the Lamb before it is too late!

       

 

 

 

          The everlasting Gospel began immediately after Adam and his wife Eve fell and transgressed the Law of God; they sinned." Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.(1 John 3:4)  "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. "(Romans 6:23)  For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul." (Leviticus 17:11) "The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.(John 1:29) The Lord Jesus committed absolutely no sins or transgressions, yet He took upon Himself  ALL of our sins and died in our place; the death that we all deserve. "So please, have faith in God repent and believe the Gospel. " But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." (Hebrews 11:6)

         God the Father loves you! Jesus Christ loves you! Have faith. (Hebrews Chapter 11 complete) Time as we know it is almost over! The history of this world is coming to a close! There truly is not much time left! So it is important to get into peoples hands as much information and warning as I can; as fast as I can, as far abroad as I can, by God's grace! I will always be adding to this site; as there is so much to give, as Jesus gives me strength. So please keep the site in prayer before the Lord. Thank you all ahead of time for your prayers and support, and let us rejoice in our searching for the Truth as it is in Christ Jesus! (Ephesians 4:20-24) Maranatha!

The Bible says "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."(Romans 10:17)

Faith is also a mystery because it is also a "GIFT of God"(Ephesians 2:8)

Faith #4102-Greek; "pistis", faith, assurance, believe, belief, them that believe, fidelity

1)conviction of the truth of anything, belief; in the New Testament of a conviction or belief respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, generally with the included idea of trust and holy fervour born of faith and joined with it. 1a) relating to God, the conviction that God exists and is the Creator and Ruler of all things, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Christ.

You will find those definitions in Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.But does the Bible help us to understand how we can exercise faith? What activates faith?

Jesus said "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." (John 7:17)

The first "will" regards man's will and is #2309 Greek- thelo or ethelo; will/would, will/would have, desire, desirous, to will, 1) to will, have in mind, intend, 1a)to be resolved or determined, to purpose, 1b) to desire, to wish, 1c) to love, to like to do a thing, be fond of doing, 1d) to delight in, have pleasure.

The second "will" relates to the Godhead and is #2307 Greek- thelema, will, desire, pleasure, 1) what one wishes or has determined shall be done, 1a) of the purpose of God to bless mankind through Christ, 1b)of what God wishes to be done by us, 1)commands, precepts, 2) will, choice, inclination, desire, pleasure.

By God's amazing grace we can see here by comparison the differences between the will of mankind and the will of God. We can see that man's will is a "spiritual mechanism" (for lack of a better term) that MUST be exercised/engaged in order to activate FAITH. And that "activation" CANNOT happen without the Word of God! Isn't that amazing!? The Living Godhead is so exceedingly AWESOME and terrible in Power.

Here it is again in its context:

6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:6-17)

This is all because of SIN! So what is sin? Does the Holy Bible explicitly and without any vagueness tell us what sin is so that we have no misunderstanding or confusion or room for abject opinions and philosophies, or motivational speaking on it to cover up the reality of sin?  What is Sin? Let us see what the Living God, the Creator of the universe and ALL that is in it, says what Sin is:

"1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
{Meaning the Ten Commandments}
5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
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.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.
13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have
we confidence toward God.
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. (1 John 3:1-24)

 

"The situation in the world and in the church just before the second advent of Christ was anticipated by God, and He has made provision to meet all the needs of His people. The world must hear the everlasting gospel. The church must give that gospel message, and at the same time make preparation for the test that will come when most of the world rejects the gospel invitation and turns against the church. Both of these tasks must be performed at the most difficult time in all history—a time when man’s weaknesses and tendencies toward sin are greatest, a time when the sin and degradation of the world outstrip that of any previous period, a time when Satan will be permitted to work his most subtle deceptions and offer his most powerful inducements to sin." (A Prophet Among You pg. 375.2 T. Housel Jemison)

           The world is racing to fulfill the Scripture to its fullest which states: "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;" (2 Timothy 3:1-4) Also, Jesus said "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornication, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man." (Mark 7:21-23) It is also spoken of in Galatians that those who commit and continue in acts of sin and wickedness will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God: "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." (Galatians 5:19-21)

 

Here is another profound proclamation from the Living God to ALL of His professed people around the world (not just the Jews):

1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.
3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou tak
est no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.
4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.
5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul;
then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:
11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
13 If thou turn away thy foot from the
sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. (Isaiah 58 complete)

  The Lord God Almighty is seeking out a people that will gladly and lovingly and obediently serve Him from every corner of the Earth. "Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles(nations)? As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel, as in believing and willingly loving obedient servants of the Lord Jesus Christ--"{For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God." Galatians 6:15-16} be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth." (Romans 9:24-28)

There is a very real truth that we each one must come to concerning TRUE REALITY and our actual condition before our Creator and Saviour and God; Jesus Christ.

“For the wages of sin is death (not "everlasting burning and torment" as MOST professed Christians believe), but the gift of God is Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23)

Let's take a little closer look at the Holy Scriptures and take them for what they say and NOT what we may have been TAUGHT to believe them to say.

"For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root(Satan) nor branch(the wicked).
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. (Malachi 4:1-3)

"For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head. For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.(Obadiah 1:15-16) THAT is a very powerful and sobering proclamation! That means that the wicked will CEASE TO EXIST; not "party on" or be in torment in hell for ALL ETERNITY as the exceeding vast majority of professed apostate Protestant Christian Pastors/Preachers/Teachers believe and cause millions to be deceived into believing.In doing so they are teaching that the Living Godhead is cruel, monstrous, unmerciful, torturers and Eternal Tormentors! That is all a lie from Satan himself and spread about by his evil angels and others willfully or unknowingly Biblically ignorant human agents. God IS Love! (1 John 4:7-8) ALL of the vastly immense created universe, and ALL the unfallen worlds (Hebrews 1:1-2) will live in ABSOLUTE peace and love. There will be NO place in ALL of God's Creation where wailing and blasphemy and swearing and pain and crying and torment of ANY kind will exist! The COMPLETE and UTTER destruction of the willfully wicked IS God's mercy. To believe otherwise is to take sides with the Dragon himself, his fallen angels and the deceived and deluded wicked. It's really as simple as that. No sorrow in ALL of God's Creation means just that! Praise the Living Godhead for Their love and mercy and grace! So then what the Lord Jesus Christ said is Truth; because He IS the Way, the Truth and the LIFE. Without Jesus there is ONLY death and cessation of existence. Let us see what the Spirit of Prophecy says regarding the condition of the lost:

In his sinless state, man held joyful communion with Him “in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” But after his sin, he could no longer find joy in holiness, and he sought to hide from the presence of God. Such is still the condition of the unrenewed heart. It is not in harmony with God, and finds no joy in communion with Him. The sinner could not be happy in God’s presence; he would shrink from the companionship of holy things. Could he be permitted to enter heaven, it would have no joy for him. The spirit of unselfish love that reigns there—every heart responding to the heart of Infinite Love—would touch no answering chord in his soul. His thoughts, his interests, his motives, would be alien to those that actuate the sinless dwellers there. He would be a discordant note in the melody of heaven. Heaven would be to him a place of torture; he would long to be hidden from Him who is its light, and the center of its joy. It is no arbitrary decree on the part of God that excludes the wicked from heaven: they are shut out by their own unfitness for its companionship. The glory of God would be to them a consuming fire. They would welcome destruction, that they might be hidden from the face of Him who died to redeem them.—Steps to Christ, 17.

Satan's Work of Ruin Forever Ended—The wicked receive their recompense in the earth. Proverbs 11:31. They “shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts.” Malachi 4:1. Some are destroyed as in a moment, while others suffer many days. All are punished “according to their deeds.” The sins of the righteous having been transferred to Satan, he is made to suffer not only for his own rebellion, but for all the sins which he has caused God's people to commit. His punishment is to be far greater than that of those whom he has deceived. After all have perished who fell by his deceptions, he is still to live and suffer on. In the cleansing flames the wicked are at last destroyed, root and branch—Satan the root, his followers the branches. The full penalty of the law has been visited; the demands of justice have been met; and heaven and earth, beholding, declare the righteousness of Jehovah. Satan's work of ruin is forever ended. For six thousand years he has wrought his will, filling the earth with woe and causing grief throughout the universe. The whole creation has groaned and travailed together in pain. Now God's creatures are forever delivered from his presence and temptations. “The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they [the righteous] break forth into singing.” Isaiah 14:7. And a shout of praise and triumph ascends from the whole loyal universe. “The voice of a great multitude,” “as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings,” is heard, saying: “Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.” Revelation 19:6.—The Great Controversy, 673.

So....what does the Holy Scriptures say that sin is?

“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth (breaks) also the law: for sin is the transgression (breaking) of the law. (1 John 3:4) (Hmmm......What Law?)

"And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. (Jude 1:14-16)

Sin (Transgression/Breaking of God's Law) Began In Heaven (What is Sin? What does the Holy Scriptures say it is?) (1 John 3:4)

And there was war in heaven: Michael (Jesus Christ before His incarnation and assuming the Role as Redeemer) and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Rev 12:7-9)

This fallen world (fallen because of sin) is in a world-engulfing spiritual and physical war, with eternal life at stake, and EVERYONE is involved in it whether they wish to believe it or not. There are only TWO sides to this world encompassing war; Those that are on the Lord Jesus Christ's side and stand under the Blood stained banner of the Lord, and those that are on the side of the Dark Prince, known as the Devil and Satan, "that old serpent", and stand under his dark black banner of sin and hatred and murder and ALL vileness and wickedness and lying.(Ephesians 6:10-18)

Satan (who was once called Lucifer in Heaven; Isaiah 14:12) was given a considerable amount of time to come to his senses and regain right reasoning:

"O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him."

(Psalm 34:8)

           The angels joyfully acknowledged the supremacy of Christ, and prostrating themselves before Him, poured out their love and adoration. Lucifer bowed with them, but in his heart there was a strange, fierce conflict. Truth, justice, and loyalty were struggling against envy and jealousy. The influence of the holy angels seemed for a time to carry him with them. As songs of praise ascended in melodious strains, swelled by thousands of glad voices, the spirit of evil seemed vanquished; unutterable love thrilled his entire being; his soul went out, in harmony with the sinless worshippers, in love to the Father and the Son. But again he was filled with pride in his own glory. His desire for supremacy returned, and envy of Christ was once more indulged. The high honors conferred upon Lucifer were not appreciated as God's special gift, and therefore, called forth no gratitude to his Creator. He gloried in his brightness and exaltation and aspired to be equal with God. He was beloved and reverenced by the heavenly host, angels delighted to execute his commands, and he was clothed with wisdom and glory above them all. Yet the Son of God was exalted above him, as one in power and authority with the Father. He shared the Father's counsels, while Lucifer did not thus enter into the purposes of God. "Why," questioned this mighty angel, "should Christ have the supremacy? Why is He honored above Lucifer?" {PP 36.3}

Leaving his place in the immediate presence of the Father, Lucifer went forth to diffuse the spirit of discontent among the angels. He worked with mysterious secrecy, and for a time concealed his real purpose under an appearance of reverence for God. He began to insinuate doubts concerning the laws that governed heavenly beings, intimating that though laws might be necessary for the inhabitants of the worlds, angels, being more exalted, needed no such restraint, for their own wisdom was a sufficient guide. They were not beings that could bring dishonor to God; all their thoughts were holy; it was no more possible for them than for God Himself to err. The exaltation of the Son of God as equal with the Father was represented as an injustice to Lucifer, who, it was claimed, was also entitled to reverence and honor. If this prince of angels could but attain to his true, exalted position, great good would accrue to the entire host of heaven; for it was his object to secure freedom for all. But now even the liberty which they had hitherto enjoyed was at an end; for an absolute Ruler had been appointed them, and to His authority all must pay homage. Such were the subtle deceptions that through the wiles of Lucifer were fast obtaining in the heavenly courts. (Patriarchs and Prophets pg. 37-38 1890)

To the very close of the controversy in heaven, the great usurper continued to justify himself. When it was announced that with all his sympathizers he must be expelled from the abode of bliss, then the rebel leader boldly avowed his contempt for the Creator’s law. He denounced the divine statutes as a restriction of their liberty, and declared that it was his purpose to secure the abolition of law. With one accord, Satan and his host threw the blame of their rebellion wholly upon Christ, declaring that if they had not been reproved, they would never have rebelled. {CTr 16.3}

Satan’s rebellion was to be a lesson to the universe through all coming ages, a perpetual testimony to the nature and terrible results of sin. The working out of Satan’s rule, its effects upon both humans and angels, would show what must be the fruit of setting aside the divine authority. It would testify that with the existence of God’s government and His law is bound up the well-being of all the creatures He has made. Thus the history of this terrible experiment of rebellion was to be a perpetual safeguard to all holy intelligences, to prevent them from being deceived as to the nature of transgression, to save them from committing sin and suffering its punishment. {CTr 16.4}

At any moment God can withdraw from the impenitent the tokens of His wonderful mercy and love. Oh, that human agencies might consider what will be the sure result of their ingratitude to Him and of their disregard of the infinite Gift of Christ to our world! If they continue to love transgression more than obedience, the present blessings and the great mercy of God that they now enjoy, but do not appreciate, will finally become the occasion of their eternal ruin.—Manuscript 125, 1907 (Sermons and Talks, vol. 1, pp. 388, 389). {CTr 16.5} (Christ Triumphant 16.2-16.5)

It is impossible to explain the origin of sin so as to give a reason for its existence. Yet enough may be understood concerning both the origin and the final disposition of sin, to make fully manifest the justice and benevolence of God in all His dealings with evil. Nothing is more plainly taught in Scripture than that God was in nowise responsible for the entrance of sin; that there was no arbitrary withdrawal of divine grace, no deficiency in the divine government, that gave occasion for the uprising of rebellion. Sin is an intruder, for whose presence no reason can be given. It is mysterious, unaccountable; to excuse it, is to defend it. Could excuse for it be found, or cause be shown for its existence, it would cease to be sin. Our only definition of sin is that given in the word of God; it is ‘the transgression of the law;’ it is the outworking of a principle at war with the great law of love which is the foundation of the divine government….“Sin originated with him [Lucifer] who, next to Christ, had been most honored of God, and who stood highest in power and glory among the inhabitants of heaven.” (“The Great Controversy Between Christ and Satan,” pp. 492, 493.)

 

“No longer free to stir up rebellion in heaven, Satan’s enmity against God found a new field in plotting the ruin of the human race. In the happiness and peace of the holy pair in Eden, he beheld a vision of the bliss that to him was forever lost. Moved by envy, he determined to incite them to disobedience, and bring upon them the guilt and penalty of sin.” “Satan represented to the holy pair that they would be gainers by breaking the law of God.” (Patriarchs and Prophets pg. 52-55)

We must remember and exercise faith to believe that God IS Love (1 John 4:7-8) In the Living Godhead there is NO darkness(wickedness):

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin (this also applies to the "once saved always saved" believers and the like), we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him(Christ) a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:1-10)

We must also, each one, come to an understanding and accept the VERY clear truth about our personal condition before the Living God, as fallen creatures:

"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."(Isaiah 53:6

“But we ARE ALL as an unclean thing, and ALL our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, (unacknowledged/willful rebellion/sin) like the wind, have taken us away. (Isaiah 64:6)

“For all have sinned, (that means EVERYONE-no exception, that was born after Adam and Eve Fell) and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

There is none that understanding, there is none that seeketh after God.

They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. (Romans 3:10-12)

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17:9-10)

The Holy Spirit lays out very, very clearly the complete condition of mankind and the grace of God towards our wretched condition:

And you hath he quickened (meaning made alive), who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:1-9)

Now, I believe it is exceedingly necessary to rightly discern Scripture concerning "being saved by grace through faith",and"by a faith that actually works; meaning obedience". (Remember how Satan before his great fall did not believe that ANY of the Holy Angels needed to be obedient to the Holy Law of God, just because they were Angels)

“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.(As Satan did)

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.{Greek #1495-eidololatria, 1) the worship of false gods, idolatry-1a) of the formal sacrificial feats held in honour of false gods, 1b) of avarice, as a worship of Mammon, 2) in the plural, the vices springing from idolatry, and peculiar to it.} (I Corinthians 10:12-14)

To this end we also must not gloss over; as is the manner of the VAST majority of  apostate Protestant Pastors/Preachers, regarding the book of James chapter 2 (They skip over very key parts of it because it brings them face to face with the Holy Mirror (The Law of God/The Ten Commandments) that shows forth their TRUE character before the Lord Jesus.

    “My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.(Meaning favoring people of wealth, community/political position, popularity, friendship, and even family relations, over others who are truly in need)

For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?(Similar to today's popular "prosperity preachers". If they do not publicly confess and repent, they have their reward already) Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

If ye fulfil the royal law (Otherwise well known as the Law of God/Ten Commandments) according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, (Meaning transgress/break the Law of God; 1 John 3:4) and are convinced of the law as transgressors. For whosoever shall keep the whole law (meaning ALL Ten Commandments), and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery (the SEVENTH Commandment), said also, Do not kill (the SIXTH Commandment). Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty (another WELL known name for the Law of God/Ten Commandments). For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment. What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith("I believe, I believe"), and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God (meaning our Saviour Jesus Christ; 1 Timothy 1:1, 1 Timothy 2:3, Titus 1:4, Titus 2:10, Titus 2:13, 2 Peter 1:1, Jude 1:24-25); thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? (That is VERY plain and clear from the Holy Spirit. Who has greater authority on the matter, man or God the Holy Spirit?)

Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? (It is very simply clear that "works" means "obedience". What Pastor/Preacher/Evangelist, etc. is there out there professing to be a servant of our Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ, and at the same time teaches by life example and words that we can willfully DISOBEY God, meaning sin, and STILL be saved!?)

And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed (and obeyed) God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James chapter 2 complete)

ALL must confess their sins to God through Jesus Christ and repent of them (put them away) and give ALL our life, our plans, our hopes, our dreams, our aspirations, our loved ones to Jesus Christ and begin the LIFELONG PROCESS of "being saved"; as"we die (to sin) daily". It is VERY important to strive to have  Scriptural discernment and understanding of the Living Word of God. Remember, it is very, very easy in this wicked world to fall for deceitful teachings and delusional doctrines, false gods, idolatry, spiritualism, ancestor worship, self-worship, calling good evil and evil good, that ensnares and suffocates and destroys the soul. It is a war we are in after all. Never ever forget that until, by God's grace, you are actually IN the Kingdom of God!

           Praise the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart as you have made it this far in reading on the site! What a rejoicing! So much more to come by God's amazing and infinite grace! Hallelujah and Amen! Here are the last sections that I am impressed by the Lord to share before moving on to other things. Prayerfully and lovingly I solemnly hope after these next sections you will have a more sure, convincing conviction as to whether you are here because you desire know the Truth and gain salvation through Jesus Christ, and living with Him forever along with the holy Angels and those of the unfallen worlds, deliverance from sin and wickedness, fleeing the wrath of the Living God that is VERY soon to come...or....whether you are here out of some "spiritualistic curiosity", mocking of God's Love, scoffing of Truth,  for the purpose of  being ungodly, being scornful of right doing (which is righteousness) or wanting to find different ways to be a liar or deceiver, lawless one or despiser of Life and all that is Good. I pray it is the first.....

Here it is.....more solid proof that Salvation is a lifelong process that will not truly be attained until at the FIRST resurrection; so we must persevere until the end, getting back up each time we may fall or make mistakes, and confess our sins and seek forgiveness and grace and strength and love from Christ Jesus to continue on by the power and guidance and conviction of the Holy Spirit; which "seals" you unto salvation through Jesus Christ and His Righteousness, and the Law of God into your hearts/minds.The SECOND resurrection is for the wicked/lost who willfully chose to serve Satan and rebel against the Righteousness of Christ and the Love and Law of God.


5 But the rest of the dead (meaning the wicked ones) lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations (the now resurrected wicked dead) which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (meaning the wicked are COMPLETELY destroyed out of existence)
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.("For ever and ever" in Scripture also means until something/someone is completely consumed; " Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." Jude 1:7 (Are those cities still burning today?)
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell (the graves) delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death (NOT "second life of eternal burning/punishing").
15 And whosoever was
not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire (The lake of fire will actually engulf the ENTIRE world, except for the area of the Holy City of God where the saved/saints of God in Christ are. So "hell" will literally be on earth, as the wicked are rewarded on earth even as the saints of God in Christ are to be rewarded on earth with eternal life/immortality).(Revelation 20:1-15)}

(Continuing on)

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep(dead) in Christ are perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
30 And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
32 If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul (NOT "given a soul"); the last Adam was made a quickening (Life giving) spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man (Adam) is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. (1 Corinthians Chapter 15 complete)

This means that our loved one, friends, ALL the dead, are STILL dead

Let The Adventure Begin!

I pray that your stay is a pleasant one. I also hope that it is an informative, learning and challenging experience. God bless you in the name of Jesus Christ!
