What do you believe?

Job 38:4-7
4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (KJV)

I believe (original post written by by John Rhine - edited by Spread-the-Truth):
  • That, billions of years ago God was alone (it's lonely at the top).
  • That, God had Wisdom, but no family to love or to love Him in return.
  • That, at that time, for His pleasure, billions of years ago, God created us, His children as spirit beings like Himself.
  • That, He could have created us like robots, programed to love Him, but finding no pleasure in that option, chose to give us free will.
  • That, He gave us free will knowing that in doing so, He risk our not returning His love.
  • That, He also created Lucifer to be a protector of the Mercy Seat.
  • That, God then created the world that then was (the first earth age) as a home for us in our angelic bodies.
  • That, Lucifer, using his free will, decided he wanted to sit on the Mercy Seat, as CHRIST, as GOD.
  • That, Lucifer deceived one third of us, convincing that many of us that he truly was capable of being more powerful than or as powerful as God.
  • That, God, in anger over Lucifer's betrayal, removed us from the earth during that first earth age and destroyed everything, actually knocking the earth off its perfect axis and causing a world wide flood [Lucifer's flood (Katabole, Satan's overthrow); not Noah's flood] which wiped out the first world age.
  • That, God sentenced Lucifer to everlasting death, with the sentence to be carried out at a future date only after He [God] uses him to help discover which of us will, truly, by our own free will, remain or become faithful to Him during this, second, earth age.
  • That, God chose not to destroy us, His children, at that time, even the ones who followed Lucifer, because He loves us and realized we had no appreciation of the finality of death; our only experience with death, having been witness to the life and death of the flesh and blood beings of the animal kingdom [dinosaurs and such] during that first earth age.
  • That, a number of us who had stayed faithful to God, continuing to worship Him and showing our love for Him.
  • That, The majority of us did not take sides with Lucifer against God, but we also did not actively choose God over Lucifer either.
  • That, God knew that many of us could not really appreciate the finality of death, even though we witnessed it in animals, so He had a plan whereby we could be saved from the same fate as Lucifer which is eternal death of the soul.
  • That, He would, one by one, in turn, over a period of time, during a second earth age, place us into flesh and blood bodies to experience the life and death of our flesh body, i.e. the shadow of death, so that we might by so doing realize how final the death of our souls would be and allowing us then, if we had not already done so, to by our own free will, choose to be faithful to Him.
  • That, Those of us who remained faithful in the first earth age He chose, predestined, for a special purpose in this flesh life without free will because He knew we had already chosen to be faithful to Him in the first earth age. (referring to us as "the elect" in the Bible)
  • That, God then created this new earth and created human life (the races) and has each of us in turn being born of water and existing here in flesh bodies, similar to that of animals, so we can gain appreciation of life and the finality of death by experiencing both, physical life and physical death while living here in flesh bodies.
  • That, He did this [created this new earth] over a six day (approx. 6000 year) period of time and on the seventh day (approx. 1000 year period) he rested while many of us came to earth, and still do, through the womb experiencing life and death during our short stay here on earth.
  • That, we all, in the flesh, fall short of the perfection he requires of his children.
  • That, He decided to come to earth Himself as a flesh man to offer His own blood as a sacrifice for sin to all who would choose life through Him rather than death through Satan.
  • That, on the eighth day he created Adam, the first farmer.
  • That, He Himself would come to earth in a flesh body as a descendant of this Adamic line of humans.
  • That, from day one, Satan determined he would corrupt that Adamic line with his own seed.
  • That, Satan did corrupt a branch of that new line before it ever really got started when he seduced Eve in the garden and she bore Cain.
  • That, a pure branch did survive through Adam's and Eve's son Seth.
  • That, over several generations others of us, loyal to Satan, came to earth without entering through the womb, i.e. being born of water, and impregnated daughters of Seth's descendants.
  • That, the situation got so bad that when there were only eight pure Adamic descendants left God again decided to destroy all other human life, in that part of the world, with a second but less devastating local flood (Noah's flood).
  • That, even after Noah's flood more of us continued to come to earth without entering through the womb (producing the giant species of man of which Goliath was one).
  • That, a pure strain on humans did survive through Abraham's and Sarah's son Isaac, via Isaac's son, Jacob (Israel) and from that line God came to earth, through the womb of a virgin descendant, in the person of Jesus Christ.
  • That, Jesus, being God in the flesh, lived a perfect life without sin and therefore; was able to become the ultimate sacrifice.
  • That, after we all have been to earth through the womb, the one true Christ will return and we will all be changed back into spirit bodies similar to the bodies we had in the first earth age.
  • That, before Jesus returns, Lucifer/Satan [as the false-christ] will come and deceive many professing Christians into believing he is Christ.
  • That, those of us who are deceived [have the mark of the beast in our forehead] will be so ashamed when Jesus says, "Depart from me, I never knew you".
  • That, When Christ returns we will all be changed back into our spiritual bodies; the Millennium (next 1000 years) will be a spiritual (not flesh and blood) existence for all of us, both the saved and the dead.
  • That, some of us who have already accepted and truly know Christ, as in know the difference between what is holy and what is profane, will receive eternal life at His return (the first resurrection)
  • That, those of us who receive eternal life at that first resurrection will rule with Christ for 1000 years teaching the rest of us the difference between what is Holy and what is profane [summer school, you might call it, for the rest of us]
  • That, Those referred to as the dead, during the Millennium, are those of us who did not receive eternal life at Christ's return, who while being yet alive all through the Millennium, are still liable to perish at the Great White Throne of Judgment depending on our works during the Millennium.
  • That, Satan will be locked up and unable to negatively influence us for this 1000 year period.
  • That, we will all (every one who ever lived, except Satan, and those of us who did not come to earth through the womb) live on earth with Christ for 1000 years (approx. 12 billion of us).
  • That, after one thousand years living without evil influence but with us having foreknowledge of what death is, Satan will be loosed for a little while to again tempt us.
  • That, any of us who did not receive eternal life at our Lord's return, now having this foreknowledge, who still choose to follow Satan, will be judged at the Great White Throne and sentenced to the same fate as Satan - to perish by the all consuming fire which is God.
  • That, God now knows that all of us who chose to follow Him in the first earth age and/or during the grace period of this earth age did so because we love Him allowing Him to change our hearts to what He would have us be, and
  • That, the walking dead who choose to follow God and holiness rather then Satan and what is profane, when Satan is released for a short time at the end of the Millennium, will at that time be granted eternal life (the second resurrection).
  • That, then God will have achieved His goal of having children, for all of eternity, who are pure in heart not because he created us without the ability to sin but knowing we loved Him and chose Him to purified us not by His will alone, but by our own free will.
  • That, as we humans measure time, is a long drawn out process, but the only way God could create offspring who end up not only being perfect, but who love Him, as He loves us, by our own free will.
  • That, He created us with the ability to be imperfect, yet with a free will to choose if we want Him to change our hearts from imperfection to perfection.
  • That, we will spend eternity here in a new heaven and earth [the third heaven and earth age] in spirit bodies, like our Fathers, and we will be His family and He will be our Father and our God.
In YAHSHUA's Name, Amen.
