There is only one God, who has no equal, identified as I AM, whose existence had no name before the beginning, since language had not yet been created for names to exist. Only he alone existed before the beginning, hence why he is also called “Father”, because in relation to time, which began in the beginning, a father exists first, then a son is born after, which implies that anyone declared to be “son” came into existence in the beginning or anytime onwards, but not before the beginning. A father is also greater than a son, which is why Jesus referred to the Father as “greater than I”, for the Father alone is infinite, which relates to why he alone cannot be contained by what he created, because it is finite, hence “but will God really dwell on earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built”. Aside from Jesus Christ, angels are also called sons of God. Deuteronomy 6:4, John 14:28, 1 Kings 8:27, Exodus 3:14, Psalms 147:5, Genesis 6:2.
To be a son of God and image of God is to be as God, because they both mean to be a visible and finite “representation” of God, who is invisible and infinite, in creation, hence why the angel that spoke to Moses spoke as God saying, “I am the God”, or why Moses was told, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh”, or why Jesus Christ is also referred to as “God”, or even why angels are called “gods”. Yet each with varying measures of authority, as sons, with Jesus Christ being in highest authority of all the representations of the actual one and only God, the Father. This is why Jesus Christ said, “anyone who has seen me has seen the Father”, for seeing a representation of God is as seeing God. When Jesus Christ referred to himself as “I AM” before “Abraham was born”, he was asserting his own existence before Abraham came into existence, not that he himself is the Father, for being “I AM” is an assertion of a living existence. As such, because a representation is finite is why Jesus Christ exhibits limited knowledge to not know the hour of his own coming, because these are details, along with knowing the quantity of hairs on everyone’s heads, or knowing the quantity of cells in everyone’s bodies, or knowing how many grains of sand exist on the earth, that pertains to the only infinite being who is capable of knowing every little detail about everything, the Father. Being made in the image of God also relates to representing the authority of God, which is why when Adam was made in the image of God, he was subsequently given authority to rule over the earth, “let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth”. This is also why those being “conformed” to the image of God, which are those who are redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ, will be one day be given authority to rule over the earth, hence “to the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations”, bearing the glory of God in new bodies that will radiate light. Exodus 7:1, Psalm 82:6, Genesis 1:27, Genesis 1:26, Exodus 3:2, Exodus 3:6, Galatians 3:19, Exodus 19:18, II Corinthians 4:4, Revelation 2:26, 1 Corinthians 6:2-3, 2 Peter 1:4, John 1:12, Romans 8:29, Hebrews 1:3, Colossians 1:15, John 14:9, John 5:23, Matthew 13:43.
Jesus is the first son created by the Father, who came into existence in the beginning, hence why he is called the “firstborn of creation”. He began to make utterances in the beginning, which began with “let there be light” on day one, hence why because of these commands it is also declared, “in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God”. This light that came into existence radiated forth from himself, since the sun nor the moon nor the stars existed till the fourth day, which became “the glory I had with you before the world began” and “the LORD wraps himself in light as with a garment”, where he literally became the “the light of the world”. All life was created through him, which is also why he is called “only son”, because unlike all other sons of God that were created through Jesus, which were angels and man, only Jesus was created directly by the Father. John 3:16, Colossians 1:15, Psalm 2:7, Genesis 6:2, Galatians 3:26, Proverbs 8:22-25, 1 Corinthians 1:30, 1 Corinthians 1:24, John 1:1-2, John 17:5.
Jesus Christ is not the creator of all “things”, he is the creator of “all”, meaning all living beings in the heavens and in the earth, for the Father “made the earth by his power”, but Jesus Christ “founded the world by his wisdom”, which included all life in bringing the world into existence. This distinction between the “earth” and the “world” is made clear in scripture, hence “before you gave birth to the earth and the world”. The word “things” was incorrectly added into certain passages related to what Jesus Christ created, which is not part of the original text, which is why according to Genesis water, which is a “thing”, already existed before Jesus Christ made his first utterance of “let there be light”, because it relates to the Father first bringing the earth into existence as an initial sphere of water, where Jesus Christ then subsequently brought the “world” into existence upon the earth that was initially made as “empty” and “desolate”, thus populating the earth with life, “all in the heavens and upon the earth”. Genesis 1:1, Jeremiah 10:12, Psalm 90:2, John 1:10, Colossians 1:16, John 1:3, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Jeremiah 51:15.
The “natural body” that man and animals were created as are a body of flesh and blood that became a living soul by the “breath of life”, where the breath of life in a man or an animal is what is called “spirit”, since there is no distinction between “spirit” and “breath” in the Greek and Hebrew languages, for even animals have the same spirit as man, hence “they went in unto Noah into the ark, two by two of all flesh in which is the spirit of life” and they also have a soul as man does, hence “let the earth bring forth living souls after their kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth, after their kind”. The breath of life is what gives man consciousness, knowledge, and understanding. Once the spirit, which is the breath, departs from the body, then the body dies and returns to the ground, and the soul of a man enters a state of sleep and is kept in the center of the earth in Sheol to await a future resurrection. Genesis 2:7, Genesis 1:20-21, Genesis 1:24, 1 Corinthians 15:44, Genesis 7:15, Ecclesiastes 3:21, Ecclesiastes 12:7, Ecclesiastes 9:10, Psalm 16:10, 1 Thessalonians 4:13, James 2:26, Genesis 6:3, Job 32:8, 1 Corinthians 2:11, Mark 2:8, Mark 8:12, John 11:33, John 13:21, Romans 8:16, Hebrews 12:23, Leviticus 26:11-30, Exodus 3:2-15, Matthew 9:24, 1 Corinthians 15:6, Psalm 13:3, Psalm 115:17, Psalm 86:13, Psalm 71:20, Matthew 12:40, Genesis 3:19, Revelation 20:13, Revelation 20:11-12, Matthew 10:28, Revelation 20:14, 1 Corinthians 15:50.
The “spiritual body” that angels were created as are a body of flesh and bones that houses their living souls and the “breath of life”, for angels also have bodies, hence why they are able to be eat and be touched, they also breathe to live, and they also have souls, but one quality that makes their bodies distinct from from the natural body of a man is that they are able to transform themselves into “spirits”, which is the form of wind, hence “he makes his angels into winds”, which is why their bodies are called “spiritual”, because of the form of wind they can transform into. In the form of wind, an angel is then able to become invisible and also inhabit a body. Angels are also able to transform into fire, hence “he makes his servants flames of fire”, which is how the angel that appeared to Moses appeared to him in the form of fire in the midst of a burning bush. 1 Corinthians 15:44-45, I Peter 3:18-19, 1 Corinthians 15:43, Hebrews 1:7, Hebrews 1:14, Luke 24:39, Psalm 104:4, Exodus 3:2, Genesis 18:1-5, Luke 24:41, Luke 24:31, Judges 6:21, 1 Corinthians 15:51-53, 1 Corinthians 15:49, 1 Corinthians 15:50, Leviticus 26:11-30, Exodus 3:2-15.
A “spirit of God”, otherwise called a “holy spirit”, is a holy angel that takes the form of spirit, which is the form of wind, hence “he makes his angels winds”, to be invisible and also to inhabit the body of a believer. This relates to “are not the angels ministering spirits”, for any angel that is holy that takes the form of spirit, then becomes a “holy spirit”, or “spirit that is holy”, or “spirit of God”, or “spirit that is from God”. This is why the holy spirit is described as having emotions and a will, because he is an actual being, an angel. God also turns his angels into fire, hence why it is said God also makes “his servants flames of fire”, which relates to why the angel that spoke to Moses appeared in the form of fire in a burning bush. Every believer who is baptized with the holy spirit receives one singular holy spirit to dwell inside him, hence “the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets” and why the angel referenced in Isaiah is called a “holy spirit”. When the holy scriptures refer to “the holy spirit” as a singular noun, it is collectively referring to every holy spirit, just like other passages like “man shall not live by bread alone” collectively refers to every person using a singular noun, “man”. This is why it is said, “every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God”, for there is not just one spirit of God, but many. This is also why prophets, such as Ezekiel, describe the spirit as speaking to them, “the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me”, because this is not some imaginary voice or figure of speech or your own voice inside your head as many presume it to be, this is an actual angel literally speaking to you, telling you what to do, and revealing things about the future to you, hence “when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak what He hears, and He will declare to you what is to come”. The “baptism of the holy spirit” is when this holy spirit enters inside your body literally. Psalm 104:4, Isaiah 63:9-10, 1 Corinthians 14:31-32, Hebrews 1:14, Exodus 3:2, 1 John 4:1-3, Ezekiel 2:2, John 16:13.
The “spirit of God” identified in Genesis is the existence of Jesus in the beginning, whose name we came to know thousands of years later. Genesis 1:2, Job 33:4.
The teaching of the trinity is a lie promulgated by the Roman catholic church which skews understanding of God, Jesus, and the holy spirit. The words “father, son, and holy spirit”, in reference to the trinity, were forged unto the scriptures in two verses, which is evidenced by earlier manuscripts not containing the trinitarian version of these verses, which contradicts to do all things in the name of “Jesus” alone. Also “father”, “son”, and “holy spirit” are not names, but titles. And also, there is not just one holy spirit, but many, for every holy angel is also a holy spirit. 1 John 4:1-2, 1 John 5:7-8, Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:16, Acts 10:48, Acts 19:5, John 14:13, Colossians 3:17, Acts 8:12, Exodus 20:7, Deuteronomy 6:4.
The tetragrammaton of the name revealed to Moses, often rendered as YHWH in English, was the name of the angel that spoke to Moses, whose name is indirectly the name of the Father because the angel was a representation of God, which relates to why Jesus refers to his own name as the name of God, “holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me”, because he is also a representation of God, to where his own name is also indirectly the name of God. Because of this the name of this angel is no longer used to worship God, because a new and greater name has been given to us to worship God, through his highest representation, Jesus. Exodus 3:2, Exodus 3:15, Acts 7:53, Acts 7:38, Galatians 3:19, Hebrews 2:2, Matthew 1:21, Philippians 2:9-10, John 17:11, Acts 4:11-12.
Death is as sleep, hence why the dead are described as being “asleep” and that the dead “know nothing”. When a man dies, his soul go to Sheol, otherwise called Hades, and is kept there in a state of sleep until the time of a future resurrection, where the soul will be drawn from there and placed into a new body, either for glory, or for destruction. And just as a man does not feel the passing of time when he falls asleep to the moment he wakes up, so it is from the moment of death to the moment of resurrection, it feels quick, even if thousands of years have passed. As opposed to the soul, the spirit of a man is his breath, since both words are synonymous in the original languages, and when a man dies, this breath returns to God who gave it. Animals also have the same spirit of life as man does. The transfiguration of Jesus Christ with Moses and Elijah was a vision, not proof that Moses and Elijah have been resurrected or never died, hence why Jesus Christ told the disciples, “tell the vision to no one”. Also, when Jesus Christ told the man crucified next to him, “today you will be with in paradise”, we know that he meant, “today, you will be with me in paradise”, meaning “because of today”, because we know Jesus Christ did not go to paradise on the day he was crucified, he went to Sheol, where the dead go, which is in the center of the earth, which relates to “so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”. It was after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, that he went to preach to the spirits in prison, which are angels bound in the Abyss, a different place than Sheol, for we know Jesus Christ did not immediately ascend to heaven after his resurrection, but went and appeared to many before his ascension. Now, God is able to make exceptions to whatever he has appointed for all men, as such, the only man who never tasted death was Enoch, who was taken to heaven. A similar exception exists for those who will be alive at the coming of Jesus Christ, who will also not taste death. Enoch going to heaven does not break the scripture of “no man has ascended to heaven”, because he didn’t originate from heaven to fulfill the next part of that scripture, “and no one hath gone up to the heaven, except he who out of the heaven came down — the Son of Man who is in the heaven”, for Jesus Christ is the only man that descended from heaven and then ascended back into heaven. Next, Elijah did not ascend to the heaven where Enoch went, but into the sky that is also called heaven, hence why certain men later said, “let them go and look for your master. Perhaps the Spirit of the LORD has picked him up and set him down on some mountain or in some valley”, for just as Elijah was carried away, so was Phillip, “when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again”. Later on, they both died ordinary deaths after being taken somewhere else on the earth. Also, “to be away from the body and at home with the Lord” does not make someone “immediately” present with the Lord, but rather, when someone becomes absent from the body, he then enters the sleep of death, to then quickly wake up at the presence of the Lord at his second coming, which relates with, “for the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air”. Matthew 9:24, 1 Corinthians 15:6, Psalm 13:3, Ecclesiastes 9:10, Psalm 115:17, Psalm 16:10, Psalm 86:13, Psalm 71:20, Matthew 12:40, Ecclesiastes 12:7, Genesis 6:3, Genesis 7:15, Genesis 2:7, Genesis 3:19, Revelation 20:13, Mark 9:47-48, Acts 8:39, Ecclesiastes 9:5, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Acts 8:39, John 3:13, Matthew 17:9, 2 Kings 2:11, 2 Kings 2:16.
The passage of the rich man and Lazarus is a parable, hence why this parable begins in the same style as the parables that immediately precede it, “a certain man”, which is the parable of the prodigal son, then “a certain man was rich”, which is the parable of the shrewd manager, and then the parable of the rich man which begins with, “there was a certain rich man”, because it is in a series of parables. The rich man symbolizes not only those who are rich, but also the Jews, hence why the rich man calls Abraham, “father Abraham”, and why he is described as having “Moses and the prophets”, and “five brothers”, which refers to the sibling tribes of Judah that was the predominant tribe of the “Jews”, which were Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Issachar, Zebulun, for although Israel had twelve tribes, six were born to Leah. Whereas Lazarus, whose Greek name correlates with the Hebrew name Eliezer, who was a servant in the house of Abraham, symbolizes not only those who are poor, but also the Gentiles, who were once foreigners to the promises of Israel, just as Eliezer was not to be Abraham’s heir. Luke 16:1-14, Luke 16:19-31, Genesis 35:23, Genesis 15:2-4.
“Forever” and “eternal” are mistranslations of the Greek word “aion”, which means a long period of time with beginning and end, usually in the thousands of years. The correct rendering in English of the variations of the word should be aeon, aeons, aeonial, or aeonially. The adjective form of this word also connotes a definitive amount of time, where “eternal” fire should be rendered as “aeonial” fire, meaning fire that lasts for aeons, or “eternal” life should be rendered as “aeonial” life, meaning a life that lasts for aeons. Whoever is granted aeonial life at the second coming of Jesus Christ will never die, not because aeonial life implicitly means to never die, for Jesus Christ already had aeonial life from the beginning, but eventually died when he came to the world, but because death itself will cease to exist when this heaven and earth passes away. The times of the new heaven and earth are referred to as the “aeons of the aeons”, which are times that have not yet been revealed to us, even though we know how those times will begin according to the book of Revelation. Matthew 25:41, Revelation 14:11, 1 Corinthians 2:7, Matthew 12:32, 1 Corinthians 3:18, Ephesians 1:21, 1 Timothy 6:17, Titus 2:12, Romans 12:2, Colossians 1:26, Genesis 49:26, Psalm 89:37, Psalm 72:7, Psalm 89:37, Romans 16:25, 2 Timothy 1:9, Titus 1:2, Ephesians 3:11, 1 Corinthians 2:7, Matthew 25:41, Galatians 1:4, Matthew 13:49-50, Matthew 25:32-41, Matthew 12:32, 1 Corinthians 10:11, Revelation 22:5, Revelation 14:11, Genesis 17:7, Jude 1:6, Daniel 7:14, Isaiah 9:7, Daniel 2:44, Luke 1:33, 2 Peter 1:11, Luke 18:30, Revelation 21:4, Genesis 21:33.
Whoever is thrown into hell, otherwise called Gehenna, will be painfully and permanently destroyed, both body and soul, where “destroy” means “annihilate”, meaning to cease to exist. Hell does not exist yet, but will be a lava lake that will exist on the surface of the earth from the time of the second coming of Jesus Christ till the end of his thousand year rulership. This fire is called “aeonial”, not eternal, because it will burn for one aeon, the aeon of the thousand year rulership of Jesus Christ, which is also why it is called “unquenchable”, because it will burn for so long. Whoever is thrown into this fire will not endure “eternal torment”, but rather, will endure excruciating pain until permanent death, and ultimately become “ashes under the feet” of the righteous. And because of the type of fire it will be, lava, is also why worms will not die, because the high viscosity of lava will cause dead bodies to float on the surface, to then be eaten by worms alive on the surface, where these “dead bodies” on the surface will be “seen” by men in accordance to Isaiah. Angels who are thrown into this fire will also die like men, hence “you are gods; you are all sons of the Most High. However, you will die like men and fall like any other ruler”. It will also be a second death to whoever is resurrected at the end of the thousand year rulership of Jesus Christ and thrown into this fire. Matthew 10:28, Revelation 20:14, Ezekiel 28:12-19, Isaiah 66:24, Psalm 82:6-7, Malachi 4:3, Psalm 112:10, Psalm 30:5, Revelation 20:15.
Immortality is conditional, not unconditional, for even angels who are considered “immortal” can be destroyed, hence “you are gods; you are all sons of the Most High. However, you will die like men”. Angels are considered “immortal” because unlike the body of a man, which was “made a little lower than the angels”, their bodies do not grow old and subsequently die of natural causes. However, their “immortality” is not unconditional to where they do not need anything to continue to live, for their bodies still need food, water, and breath to continue to live, which is why in scripture we observe angels eating, and even the Israelites ate the “food of angels”, which was manna, because angels do not just eat for pleasure, but also to nourish their bodies, which has metabolic function just as the natural body of man does. If any of these conditions of life were taken away from their bodies, then they would die like any man, because just as man and animals, angels are also created, and just like all created beings, rely on God to continue to provide conditions of life for their bodies, for only God has no need of anyone or anything to live. As such, anyone who is granted immortality is kept immortal by the continued will, provision, and protection of God. If God so wanted to end the life of anyone he has created, immortal or mortal, he can, for no created being is unconditionally immortal as God is. Psalm 82:6-7, Ezekiel 28:12-19, Mark 1:23-24, Malachi 4:3, Matthew 10:28, Genesis 18:1-5, Luke 24:41, Luke 24:39, Psalm 8:5, Psalm 78:25.
The Father has predestined everything, where he alone has chosen who he will deliver from before the foundation of the world. He has appointed all men to be disobedient that he may either demonstrate mercy and forgiveness to those he has chosen, or that he may demonstrate wrath and power to those he did not choose. He either hardens the heart, or draws men to him. Absolutely everything is determined by him, even the outcome of a roll of a dice, hence why the apostles cast lots to determine who the apostle to replace Judas would be. Isaiah 45:7, 1 Samuel 2:6, Job 5:18, Deuteronomy 32:39, Exodus 4:11, John 9:2-7, Psalm 139:16, Proverbs 21:1, John 6:44, Romans 9:11-13, Romans 9:18, John 12:40, Exodus 7:3, Romans 9:22, Exodus 9:15-16, Romans 9:17, Proverbs 16:4, Romans 2:4, Romans 11:32, Romans 9:23, Romans 9:15, Romans 9:16, Acts 17:28, Proverbs 16:33, Acts 1:26, Matthew 5:45, Psalm 139:13, Romans 8:33, Titus 1:1, 2 Thessalonians 2:13, Ephesians 1:4, Romans 8:29, Matthew 25:34.
Jesus Christ will return with his holy angels, not the elect, for he comes to gather his elect from the four corners of the earth, even among the dead. The angels that he comes with will do the gathering of the elect. 2 Thessalonians 1:7, Matthew 25:31, Matthew 16:27, Mark 8:38, I Thessalonians 3:13, Jude 1:14, Matthew 24:31, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Isaiah 27:12-13.
Whoever is chosen will not go to heaven, but will inherit the earth after being gathered by angels and taken to meet Jesus Christ at his second coming. These chosen will then rule on the earth over nations, in glorified and immortalized bodies. This is why it is said, the “meek will inherit the earth”. For just as the Israelites were promised a plot of land, the true promised land for the chosen is the entire earth, this is why according to Paul, Abraham is called an “heir of the world”. These chosen will also sit in thrones, judging the world, even angels. After the thousand years are completed, these chosen will then live in a new earth. I Corinthians 15:51-54, Daniel 12:13, Daniel 12:1-3, Isaiah 26:19-21, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Matthew 24:30-31, Revelation 14:15, Matthew 13:38-39, Isaiah 27:12-13, Isaiah 11:12, Matthew 5:5, Psalm 37:11, Psalm 111:6, Revelation 20:5-6, Revelation 2:26-27, Revelation 3:21, Romans 4:13, Daniel 7:27, Daniel 2:44, Luke 19:17-19, Isaiah 61:1-7, Revelation 5:10, Deuteronomy 16:18, 1 Corinthians 6:2-3, Revelation 20:4, Romans 4:13.
All seals up until the first portion of the sixth seal of the book of Revelation have already been fulfilled, where the great earthquake occurred in 1755 in Lisbon, Portugal, the sun turned black and the moon turned red as blood in 1780 as witnessed over the American colonies, and the stars fell to earth in 1833 as the great and terrifying meteor shower witnessed all over North America. These were warning signs that come before the final portion of the sixth seal, which is the “day of the Lord”. Revelation 6:12-13, Joel 2:31, Isaiah 34:4, Matthew 24:29, Mark 13:24-25.
Jesus Christ will return at the final portion of the sixth seal of the book of Revelation, where the entire earth will be covered by thunderstorms, which is what “the sky will be rolled up like a scroll” means, for the sky will be shut closed like a book with dark clouds, which will conceal the sun, moon, and stars above. The entire earth will also shake at his presence. The leaders of the world will hide underground in dread of his appearance. Revelation 6:14-17, Isaiah 34:4, Isaiah 64:1, Isaiah 13:13, Ezekiel 38:20, Joel 2:10, Psalm 18:7-9, Psalm 144:5, Psalm 96:11-13, Daniel 7:13, Isaiah 13:9, Psalm 98:6-9, Psalms 18:9, Psalm 18:11, Isaiah 2:19-21, 2 Peter 3:10.
Shortly after the coming of Jesus Christ, the angels that he comes with will begin to blast the seven trumpets of the book of Revelation in correlation to the Festival of Trumpets. Fire will rain from heaven on the earth, a third of the sea will become blood, a third of the rivers will become poisoned by a meteor that will fall on the rivers, the sun and stars and moon will be darkened, angels will be released from the abyss to torment men, an army of other angels will be commanded to march and kill a third of mankind, and at the seventh trumpet Jesus Christ will begin to rule the earth. Numbers 29:1, Revelation 8:1-2, Numbers 29:1, Revelation 8:7, 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Matthew 24:30-31, Psalm 18:9-12, Psalm 11:6-7, Isaiah 30:30, 2 Peter 3:10, 2 Peter 3:12, Matthew 24:29, Mark 13:24-25, Isaiah 13:13, Joel 2:10, Revelation 8:8, Revelation 8:10-11, Jeremiah 23:15, Revelation 8:12, Matthew 24:29, Isaiah 13:10, Isaiah 24:23, Ezekiel 32:7, Joel 2:10, Joel 3:15, Mark 13:24, Revelation 8:13, Revelation 9:1-11, Luke 8:31, Revelation 9:7, Judges 13:6, Psalm 82:6-7, Daniel 10:13, 2 Corinthians 4:4, Jude 1:8-10, 1 Peter 3:19, Jude 1:6, 2 Peter 2:4, Revelation 9:5, Revelation 9:6, Revelation 9:13-15, Ephesians 6:12, Revelation 12:3-4, Revelation 9:16, Joel 2:1-9, Isaiah 66:15-16, Jeremiah 25:30-33, Exodus 12:23, Psalm 78:43-49, Revelation 11:15, Psalm 72:7-11, Isaiah 18:1-7.
The seven bowls of the book of Revelation will be poured shortly after the seven trumpets in correlation with the Feast of Tabernacles. Men will be struck with boils, the seas will become blood, the rivers will become blood, the sun will scorch men with fire, men will be plunged into thick darkness, the Euphrates River will be dried up, and great hail will fall on the earth along with a world wide earthquake that will cause all the cities of the world to collapse. Vatican city will be split in three. Leviticus 23:37, Numbers 29:12-34, Numbers 15:10, Numbers 28:7, Revelation 15:5, Revelation 15:7-8, Revelation 16:2, Revelation 16:3, Revelation 16:4, Revelation 16:8, Revelation 16:10-11, Isaiah 8:21-22, Revelation 16:12-16, Psalm 2:1-3, Revelation 16:17-21, Isaiah 24:19-20, Psalm 9:15-20.
After all the cities of the world are destroyed and many men die by plagues, most of those who survived will be captured by angels and taken to Israel as prisoners to be judged by the chosen, which is why it is said, “I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there”. They will then be thrown into the lava lake to be destroyed. Matthew 13:41, Matthew 24:40-41, Matthew 25:32, Matthew 13:49-50, Psalm 21:8, Psalm 149:4-9, Joel 3:2, Isaiah 2:4, Psalm 50:3-21, Revelation 19:20.
Whoever survives that does not die by plague or from being thrown into the lava lake after the second coming of Jesus Christ, which will be very few, will repopulate the earth during the rulership of Jesus Christ. These are not the elect that will “inherit” the world, but the “great multitude” that wash their robes in the blood of the lamb in the book of Revelation, and the ones the elect will rule over. These survivors will remain mortal and will not have the aeonial life the elect receive. They will live long lives during the rulership of Jesus Christ, but will eventually die, where they will then be resurrected at the final resurrection at the end of the thousand year rulership of Jesus Christ. Revelation 7:9, Revelation 7:13-14, Isaiah 14:1-2, Psalm 18:37-47, Isaiah 13:12, Isaiah 24:1-6, Isaiah 19:1-25, Revelation 20:8, Isaiah 65:20.
Zion will be the city of God where the chosen will live on the earth during the thousand year rulership of Jesus Christ. The mount of Zion is where Jesus Christ himself will live. This is why the 144,000 are mentioned standing at Mount Zion with Jesus Christ in the book of Revelation. Jerusalem will also be inhabited. Isaiah 2:2-3, Psalm 69:35-36, Psalm 102:13-16, Psalm 132:11-18, Psalm 133:1-3, Psalm 126:1-6, Psalm 9:7-11, Psalm 9:13-14, Psalm 2:6, Hebrews 12:22, Joel 3:17, Isaiah 4:3, Isaiah 52:1, Psalm 15:1, Psalm 14:7, Psalm 50:1-5, Psalm 53:6, Isaiah 4:5-6, Isaiah 14:32, Isaiah 60:1-14, Isaiah 62:1-12, Isaiah 66:8, Revelation 20:9.
Heaven and earth is appointed to exist 7,000 years, which is why God created heaven and earth in six days, and rested on the seventh, to foreshadow the length of time it is appointed to exist. 2 Peter 3:8.
The last thousand years of this heaven and earth will be a Sabbath rest for the entire earth, which is also called the “thousand year reign of Jesus Christ”. When these thousand years are completed, then a new heaven and new earth will be created by God, and the former heaven and former earth will cease to exist. Habakkuk 2:14, Isaiah 11:9, Isaiah 65:25, Isaiah 65:20, Psalm 46:9, Isaiah 14:5-8, Psalm 95:10-11, Hebrews 4:8-9, Hebrews 4:4, Genesis 2:2, 2 Peter 3:8, Revelation 20:11, Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, Hebrews 4:10. Revelation 14:13, Colossians 2:16-17.
The Torah, which is the Law of God, has not been abolished, hence “do not think that I have come to abolish the Law”. Jesus Christ began to fulfill the Law of God at his first coming, where he became the literal lamb of God to fulfill the Passover required by the Law, along with fulfilling all the spring festivals, such as sending the holy spirit to fulfill the Pentecost required by the Law, and will continue fulfilling the autumn festivals of the Law at his second coming, which start with the Festival of Trumpets, which he will fulfill by blasting the trumpets at his coming, which are the seven trumpets of Revelation. By the time the thousand year rulership of Jesus Christ is fulfilled, which is foreshadowed by the seventh day Sabbath itself in the Law, then the entire Law will be fulfilled, hence “till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”, because at the conclusion of the thousand year rulership heaven and earth will then pass away, and thus, all the times foreshadowed by the Law will be fulfilled. Matthew 5:17, Matthew 5:19, Romans 7:7, Romans 3:20, Romans 2:18-20, Psalm 19:7, Nehemiah 9:13, Psalm 103:6-7, Romans 3:19, Ecclesiastes 12:13-14, Deuteronomy 6:25, Matthew 5:18, Luke 16:17, Psalm 119:1, Psalm 1:1-2, Psalm 18:22-25, Isaiah 26:8-12, 2 Chronicles 35:12, 2 Chronicles 34:14, Deuteronomy 29:21, 2 Chronicles 34:30, Luke 2:23, Romans 7:22, Matthew 22:36, Exodus 12:49, Luke 24:44.
Every command of the Torah must be obeyed, for it is the Law of God, hence, “anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven”. Matthew 5:19.
The festivals and Sabbaths of the Law are no longer required to be observed because their fulfillment is found in the realities each of them foreshadowed, where each festival foreshadowed future times, such as the Passover foreshadowing the death of Jesus Christ, Pentecost foreshadowing the sending of the holy spirit, the Festival of Trumpets foreshadowing the blasting of trumpets at the second coming of Jesus Christ, or the Sabbath foreshadowing the one thousand year rest for the entire earth. Observing these “shadows of the good things to come” relate to the “works of the Law” that Paul spoke of that are no longer of any avail in relation to actual righteousness, which are the other commands in the Law that are not shadows, such as “do not murder” and “do not steal”. Hebrews 10:1, Colossians 2:16-17, Exodus 12:15-17, 1 Corinthians 5:8, Leviticus 23:9, 1 Corinthians 15:23, Deuteronomy 16:9-12, Acts 2:1-4, Numbers 29:1, 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 8:6, Exodus 12:3-11, 1 Corinthians 5:7, John 19:36, Exodus 12:46, 1 Peter 1:19, 1 Peter 2:22, Matthew 27:46-50, Leviticus 23:27-30, Leviticus 25:9-11, Matthew 24:30-31, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, I Corinthians 15:51-54, Leviticus 23:39-42, Revelation 20:9, Exodus 35:2-3, 2 Peter 3:8, Revelation 20:6, Hebrews 4:8-10, Matthew 12:1-5, Isaiah 1:13-14.
Drinking blood, eating meats that still have its blood, and blood transfusions are sin, for the command to abstain from consuming blood was given to Noah, which predated the Law that was given to Moses. Leviticus 7:26, Leviticus 17:10, Deuteronomy 12:16, Deuteronomy 15:23, Leviticus 19:26, 1 Samuel 14:33, 1 Samuel 14:34, Acts 15:20, Acts 15:29, Genesis 9:3, Genesis 9:4, Deuteronomy 12:23, Leviticus 17:14, Luke 22:20, Isaiah 53:12, Leviticus 17:11, Leviticus 18:19, Leviticus 15:19, Leviticus 20:18.
All meats are allowable to eat, for before the Law came prohibiting eating unclean animals, Noah was told “every moving thing that liveth shall be food for you”. The Law brought a distinction between clean and unclean animals to relate the respective behaviors of each animal to certain men, such as lambs, which are clean, who follow a shepherd, being related to the righteous, or dogs, which are unclean, who return to their vomit, being related to those who go back to their unrighteousness. Genesis 9:3, 1 Timothy 4:3, 2 Corinthians 6:14-17, Psalm 140:1-3, 2 Peter 2:21-22, Leviticus 11:20-23, Deuteronomy 14:11-18, Deuteronomy 14:9, Deuteronomy 14:6-8.
Men and women are to wear tallit, tzitzit, and tefillin in obedience to the Law. The tzitzit must have a blue cord as commanded in the Law. The head tefillin must be worn on the forehead, not above it. Numbers 15:38-40, Deuteronomy 22:12, Matthew 9:20, Mark 6:56, Numbers 15:39-40, Exodus 13:16, Deuteronomy 6:8, Deuteronomy 11:18, Exodus 13:9, Matthew 23:5, Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Deuteronomy 11:13-17, Exodus 13:1-8, Exodus 13:11-15.
Wives are to wear head coverings, otherwise called the tzniut, as a sign they are married. Only the face is to be visible by covering the head. 1 Corinthians 11:6, 1 Corinthians 11:10, Numbers 5:18, 1 Corinthians 11:5, 1 Corinthians 11:3, Genesis 24:65-66, Genesis 24:67, 1 Corinthians 11:6, Deuteronomy 21:11-12, 1 Corinthians 11:5, 1 Corinthians 11:15, Genesis 38:14, 1 Corinthians 11:16, 1 Corinthians 11:2.
Wives are to submit to husbands and may not speak in the assemblies of God, for because of the transgression of Eve mentioned in the Law, she was brought under submission to her husband, hence “he shall rule over you”. Wives also may not teach, whereas unmarried women may speak or teach, since they have not been brought under submission to a husband in marriage. 1 Corinthians 14:34, 1 Corinthians 14:35, 1 Corinthians 14:34, Genesis 3:16, Ephesians 5:22, 1 Timothy 2:11, 1 Timothy 2:12-14, Colossians 3:18, 1 Peter 3:1.
The word of God is a seed that must then grow into the knowledge of good evil, which is knowledge of the Law of God, since the Law of Moses “reveals everything that is sin”, hence why Paul said, “because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth”. The Law says, “you shall not lend at interest”, therefore, if you do not have knowledge of this command, then you would not know that you must stop doing it. Gaining knowledge of the Law, along with understanding it, is where the “growth” factor of a believer is, some are babes, meaning they know little, and others are mature, meaning they know much. This is why it is said, “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” and “fools die for lack of understanding” because lack of knowledge and understanding of the Law will result in disobedience, which will ultimately result in death. This is also why Paul said, “for everyone partaking of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, the ones by constant use having trained the senses for distinguishing both good and evil”. Knowledge and understanding of the Law, after believing, should then subsequently lead a man to stop breaking the Law he now knows and understands, “repentance”, and into full obedience, “blamelessness”, which will then lead to the baptism of the holy spirit, and ultimately, to aeonial life. Whoever thinks that mere belief delivers is deceived, for belief must then bring action and obedience, otherwise it is dead. Aside from never reaching blamelessness, many do not even reach knowledge of the Law, because most are taught that the Law has been done away with, thus discarding the very Law that reveals everything that is sin, which relates to the Greek word “anomia”, which means without Law, “lawlessness”. Romans 2:18-20, Hebrews 5:11-14, 1 Corinthians 2:4-6, Hebrews 6:1-2, 1 Peter 2:2, Ephesians 4:14-15, Luke 8:12-15, Psalm 119:104, Psalm 19:7, Proverbs 10:8, Psalm 19:8-9, Deuteronomy 4:5-6, Proverbs 4:7, Proverbs 23:23, Proverbs 3:13-18, II Timothy 3:15-17, James 1:21, Luke 8:11 , Hebrews 11:3, Ephesians 5:17, Proverbs 4:1, Psalm 119:34, Psalm 119:125, Proverbs 2:2-5, Psalm 14:2, Nehemiah 8:8, Nehemiah 8:12, 2 Timothy 3:7, 2 Timothy 2:25, Colossians 1:9, 1 Timothy 2:4, Titus 1:1, Romans 10:2, Colossians 2:2, Colossians 3:10, Hebrews 10:26, Philippians 1:9, 2 Peter 1:3, 2 Peter 2:20, 1 Peter 1:22, Ephesians 4:13, 2 Peter 3:16-18, Hosea 4:14, Revelation 2:14, Revelation 2:20, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, Titus 1:14, 2 Peter 2:2-3, Proverbs 10:21, Ephesians 4:18, Jeremiah 5:4, Isaiah 44:18, Isaiah 1:3, Isaiah 27:11, Deuteronomy 32:28, Proverbs 19:2, Hosea 4:6, Isaiah 5:13, Proverbs 1:22, Proverbs 1:27-29, Proverbs 18:15, Proverbs 15:14.
Repentance means to stop sinning, which means to stop disobeying the Law of God. Also, whatever was used to sin must be destroyed, as this relates to fulfilling the Festival of Unleavened Bread that comes after the Passover, getting rid of all yeast in the house, where yeast symbolizes sin. This includes destroying any electronic device that is commonly used to view things like pornography or movies, which are all based on various sins. This also relates to passages where the Israelites would destroy any object that was used to commit the sin of idolatry, where they destroyed their Asherah poles, and even the bronze serpent that was made by Moses that the Israelites later came to burn incense to. Repentance should lead to becoming “blameless”, meaning there should be absolutely nothing to be blamed of concerning sin and transgression. This relates to why Abraham was told to “walk blameless” before he received the sign of the old covenant, which was the circumcision of the flesh. Matthew 3:2, 2 Corinthians 12:21, John 8:11, John 5:14, Romans 3:20, Matthew 5:17, Matthew 5:19, Hebrews 10:26-27, Psalm 68:21, Genesis 17:1, Psalm 15:1-2, Psalm 101:6, Psalm 18:22-25, Genesis 26:5, Deuteronomy 6:25, Job 1:8, Genesis 6:9, 1 Corinthians 5:8, 2 Kings 18:4.
Humble yourself means to sell your possessions in order to reduce yourself to little and thus become “humble”, hence why Jesus Christ taught, “sell your possessions”, and why the early assemblies sold their possessions and properties. Selling your possessions does not necessarily mean sell absolutely everything you have, for after the assemblies sold their possessions and properties, some still dwelled in homes where they then assembled. Sell your possessions means to reduce your to “necessities”, which relates to being as a sojourner and traveling light, just as Abraham traveled in tents in the land he would one day inherit. This also relates to what John the Baptist said, “whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none”. Some will reduce themselves more than others, as some of the apostles were reduced to only carrying staffs, hence “he instructed them to take nothing but a staff for the journey–no bread, no bag, no money in their belts”. Unlike possessions, absolutely all properties must be sold. No believer is to own land, but rather, he must rent if he should choose to dwell in a home, just as Paul did. No one can serve God and money. After humility, then comes exaltation, where Jesus Christ will greatly reward those who obeyed, not only with aeonial life, but also with aeonial possessions and aeonial properties. Jesus Christ laid the ultimate example of humility, not even having a pillow to lay his head on, before he received exaltation to rule over all heaven and earth. Acts 2:45, James 4:10, 2 Chronicles 7:14, Psalm 138:6, Proverbs 3:34, Matthew 19:21, Luke 18:22, Mark 10:21, Luke 12:15, Matthew 6:24, Luke 16:13-14, Luke 14:33, Matthew 13:44, Mark 4:19, Mark 10:25, 1 Timothy 6:10, Matthew 20:16, Matthew 23:12, Deuteronomy 8:2, 1 Peter 5:6, Matthew 5:5, Revelation 2:26, Luke 19:17, 1 Corinthians 15:52-53, Philippians 2:7, 1 Corinthians 1:28, 1 Corinthians 1:26, 1 Corinthians 1:27-29, Matthew 6:31, Acts 4:34-35, Proverbs 30:8, Proverbs 23:4-5, Mark 6:8.
After repentance and humility, a man must then begin doing good works by “giving to the poor”, which is what “bearing fruit” means, and doing the “deeds worthy of their repentance”. A man must continue to do good works throughout his appointed time in this body, which is also what being a “servant” of God means, living in service of others. This is why Cornelius, even though he had no knowledge of the holy spirit, was given the holy spirit, because of his belief, his obedience, and also his good works, hence why the angel told him “your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God”. Aside from giving money to the poor, acts of righteousness include helping widows, helping orphans, visiting those in prison, looking after the sick, clothing those who are naked, giving food to the hungry, giving water to the thirsty, housing foreigners, and healing the sick. The more fruit you bear, the greater your reward will be at the coming of Jesus Christ, hence “if you sow sparingly you will reap sparingly”. Acts 10:31, Isaiah 58:6-9, Isaiah 1:16-18, Ephesians 2:10, James 2:14-16, Matthew 3:8, Acts 26:20, John 15:16, 2 Corinthians 9:8, 2 Timothy 2:21, 2 Timothy 3:17, Titus 3:1, 1 Peter 2:12, Matthew 5:16, Galatians 6:9, Revelation 2:5, Psalm 126:5, Proverbs 11:18, Psalm 112:9, Revelation 22:12, Matthew 7:19, Matthew 7:21, Matthew 25:41-46, Ezekiel 16:49-50, Leviticus 25:35, Deuteronomy 15:7-9, Leviticus 19:18, Luke 10:30-37, Matthew 23:23, Proverbs 21:13, James 4:17, Proverbs 3:27-28, Matthew 20:26, Matthew 23:11, Mark 9:35, James 1:27, Matthew 25:34-40, Ezekiel 18:7-9, Genesis 18:1-5, Genesis 19:1-3, Acts 3:6-8, Mark 3:4-5, Mark 16:17-18, Matthew 13:8, 2 Corinthians 9:6.
The baptism of the holy spirit is the final seal of deliverance which perfects a man inwardly, freeing him from the sinful nature he was conceived in, to where it then becomes impossible to ever sin again, hence “whoever is born of God does not commit sin”. This is what “circumcision of the heart” means and what being “freed from sin” means. This was in fact the very purpose of the first coming of Jesus Christ, not only to become a sacrifice for sin, but to also fulfill “to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin” spoken of in Daniel in relation to the first coming of Jesus Christ. The holy spirit has authority to change the heart of a man, hence why when the holy spirit entered inside of Saul, the scriptures declare, “then the Spirit of the LORD will rush upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man”. Anyone who believes man can never stop sinning is deceived, for it is possible, but only by the baptism of the holy spirit. And whoever does not become freed of sin will not inherit the kingdom of God, so it must be the pursuit of anyone who comes to the belief of Jesus Christ. Receiving the holy spirit is always evidenced by a sign of power, usually prophesying or speaking in a new language. Many will claim to have the holy spirit, but if they are still sinning, then they have not received him, hence “we know that no one who is born of God sins”. Whoever receives the holy spirit is also granted authority to perform signs and miracles, hence “these signs will accompany those who believe”. After becoming perfected inwardly, in this body, the final step of perfection and becoming the “image of God” is to be perfected outwardly, which means to receive the new body of glory at the coming of Jesus Christ. I John 5:18, 1 John 5:4 , 1 John 3:9, Daniel 9:24, Matthew 1:21, 1 John 3:6, Romans 2:29, 1 Samuel 10:6, Jeremiah 4:4, Colossians 2:11, Ezekiel 36:26, Hebrews 9:9, Hebrews 10:4, Hebrews 10:14, John 8:34-36, Philippians 3:15, Hebrews 12:23, Colossians 1:28, Colossians 4:12, Hebrews 5:14, James 1:4, Matthew 5:48, John 3:7-8, John 3:5, Romans 6:18, Romans 8:2, Romans 8:1, Romans 8:9, Ezekiel 36:27, Romans 3:21, Romans 10:3, Hebrews 9:13-14, Romans 8:4, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Thessalonians 2:13, Acts 2:4, Acts 19:6, 1 Samuel 19:20-21, 1 Samuel 10:10.
Only 144,000 will receive the holy spirit, which are the sealed mentioned in the book of Revelation. This is why it is said “many are called, but few are chosen”. This will be the new restored Israel at the second coming of Jesus Christ, which are the chosen that will be gathered, which will be a mixture of Jews and also Gentiles that were grafted in. Whichever Gentiles are grafted in will have also descended from one of the tribes of Israel that were scatted among the nations, whether knowingly or unknowingly. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Matthew 24:30-31, Isaiah 27:12-13, Isaiah 11:12, Romans 2:29, Romans 11:24-26, Acts 1:6, Revelation 7:4, Ephesians 1:13, Ephesians 4:30, Revelation 14:3, 1 Corinthians 6:20, Acts 20:28, Revelation 14:4, Matthew 22:30, Revelation 7:4, Romans 2:29, Romans 11:24-26, Galatians 4:29, John 3:5, Galatians 4:28, Isaiah 51:1-2, Galatians 4:24-25, Numbers 1:18, Ezra 2:59, Genesis 16:15, Genesis 15:4, James 1:1, 1 Peter 1:1, John 7:35, John 11:51-52, John 10:16, Psalm 147:2, Isaiah 11:12, Zephaniah 3:10, Isaiah 63:16, Revelation 7:5-8, Romans 11:5, Matthew 22:14.
Jews who did not believe in Jesus Christ and were subsequently not sealed will be thrown outside of Jerusalem and trampled in fulfillment of the vision of the trampling at the great winepress of God, where blood will rise to a horse’s bridle to the length of 1600 stadia in accordance to the Book of Revelation. Revelation 14:20, Ezekiel 32:5-6, Isaiah 34:3, Isaiah 5:4-7, Joel 3:13, Isaiah 63:1-3, Revelation 14:18-20, Deuteronomy 16:13, Luke 17:34-36.
The assembling of the brethren must be done in homes, not churches designated for assembly, hence why the Law commands eating the Passover lamb specifically in homes. If the assembly becomes too large for the home, then the assembly should split into two homes, with newly appointed elders to oversee the new assembly. The assembling of the brethren should be done every night or as often as possible, which should also be accompanied by the Lord’s Supper, which is also called the breaking of bread. This supper should be had as the Lord instituted it, with unleavened bread and with wine, and only by believers who are “blameless”, otherwise someone who is unworthy might die from partaking in the Lord’s Supper. No one is to become intoxicated from the wine. The washing of feet must also be done in the assembling of the brethren. Exodus 12:3-11, Philemon 1:2, Colossians 4:15, Romans 16:5, 1 Corinthians 16:19, 1 Corinthians 5:7, Luke 22:19, 1 Corinthians 11:26, Acts 2:46, Acts 2:42 , 1 Corinthians 11:20-21, 1 Corinthians 11:33-34, Deuteronomy 12:11, John 4:20-24, John 13:14, 1 Timothy 5:10.
As new believers sell their possessions and properties and join the assemblies, they should be ready to share their money and distribute to those in need in the assemblies. In this way no one will be lacking in the assemblies and will imitate the practices of the assemblies of the apostles, and demonstrate great love for each other. Acts 2:45, Acts 4:34-35.
Whoever is chosen by God will suffer, and may or may not be martyred. Whoever does not suffer is not chosen, for the discipline of God to his sons comes in the form of suffering, whereas those who are illegitimate sons are left without discipline. The more you suffer, the greater your reward will be at the coming of Jesus Christ, hence why it is said, “there were others who were tortured, refusing to be released so that they might gain an even better resurrection”. Proverbs 3:11, Hebrews 12:6, Hebrews 12:7, 2 Timothy 3:12, Romans 8:17, 2 Timothy 1:8, Acts 14:22, Philippians 1:29, Hebrews 12:8, Acts 4:3, Acts 5:40, Acts 9:29, Acts 7:58, Acts 12:2, 2 Corinthians 11:23-28, Hebrews 11:35-38, John 19:1-2, Matthew 5:10-12, Acts 5:41, Luke 21:16, Matthew 24:9, Romans 8:36.
Children may be baptized with water, for deliverance does not come by a choice one needs to be of a certain age to make, it comes by a choice God even before being born, before the foundation of the world. This is why John the Baptist received the holy spirit even while still being in the womb, because he was already chosen, and his age did not matter. Ephesians 1:4, Luke 1:15, Acts 2:38-39, Matthew 19:13-14, 1 Corinthians 10:1-2, Exodus 14:21-22, Exodus 12:37, Acts 10:47-48, Acts 16:31, 1 Corinthians 7:14.
The earth was once surrounded by a layer of ice, which is where much of the water that caused the entire earth to flood in the time of Noah came from. This was the “firmament” that was created in the beginning. This is why the scriptures declare “he brought the earth out from the water and surrounded it with water”, and “a firmament, as the vision of ice being stretched out over”, and “stretching out the heavens like a tent”. This layer of ice compressed the atmosphere, causing natural hyperbaric conditions to occur, causing plants and living beings to grow larger. We know the compression existed, because the collapse of this layer of ice subsequently caused “the springs of the great deep burst forth”, which indicates a release in pressure. Ezekiel 1:22, 2 Peter 3:5, Genesis 1:6, Genesis 1:7-8, Psalm 104:6, Psalm 104:1-2, Isaiah 40:22, 2 Peter 3:6, Genesis 7:12, Psalm 104:6-10, Genesis 7:11.
The center of the earth is a sea, where the layers of rock, otherwise called the “foundations of the earth”, sit above the sea below and support the dry land above. This is why it is said, “the earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters”. The foundations of the earth were laid on the third day, when dry land was created, for before the foundations of the earth were laid, the earth was first a sphere of water. Genesis 1:1-2, Genesis 1:9-13, Psalm 24:1-2, Genesis 1:10, Job 38:4-6, Psalm 102:25, Psalm 104:5, 2 Peter 3:5, Psalm 136:6, Isaiah 42:5, Job 38:8, Psalm 104:6, Revelation 20:13.
Remarriage is adultery if both a husband and his wife are still alive, even if they are divorced or separated, for no one should separate what God has brought together, hence why the Law declares “the two shall become one”. A husband or a wife is only permitted to separate or divorce if there is sexual immorality or if he or she has been dismissed by an unbelieving spouse, but neither can remarry until one of them dies, or they can choose to reconcile. Deuteronomy 24:1, Matthew 19:3, Matthew 19:9, 1 Corinthians 7:13, Matthew 19:9, Mark 10:11-12, 1 Corinthians 7:15, 1 Corinthians 7:10-11, Genesis 2:24, Mark 10:8-9, I Corinthians 7:39, Romans 7:2-3, Matthew 19:10, 1 Corinthians 7:10-11.
The Roman line of emperors then became the Roman popes in fulfillment of the “antichrist” prophecies, also referred to as the “little horn” of Daniel, who created a false gospel that mixed ancient Babylonian and Egyptian teaching into what became “catholicism”. This relates to why the Vatican is also called the whore of “Babylon”. The pope has taught the world lies, with teachings such as the trinity, eternal torment in hell, the soul never dies and goes immediately to hell or heaven at death, changing times such as the Sabbath to Sunday, and ultimately discarding the Law of God, hence why he is also called the “man of lawlessness”. She is also called “whore” because she sells her lies for money, just as a whore sells her body for money, hence why she is also very wealthy, which relates to how the kings of the earth commit “sexual immorality” with her, because all the banks of the world trace back to the Vatican, which are all based on interest and usury, which is forbidden by the Law of God. This whore of Babylon is also the mother of more whores, which are more churches and denominations that have borrowed many of her teachings, which includes Protestant churches. The pope will be destroyed by Jesus Christ at his second coming. Daniel 7:8, 1 John 2:18, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, Daniel 11:36, Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15-20, Luke 21:20-24, Luke 21:5-6, 2 Thessalonians 2:8, Daniel 7:8, Revelation 13:5, Daniel 7:25, Revelation 13:5-6.
The pope persecuted and martyred the people of God. The Vatican currently stands as being drunk with the blood it formerly spilled, whose authority began around 538 AD as granted by the Justinian Code till around 1798 AD when the pope was captured by the French, thus fulfilling the 1,260 years, 42 months, and “time, times, and half a time” declared by scripture. Daniel 7:25, Revelation 13:5, Revelation 13:7.
The teaching of the seven years tribulation is a lie, since the 490 prophetic years of Daniel were “consecutive” weeks culminating to the first coming of Jesus Christ, where he is the one that confirmed his new covenant with many and ended sacrifices by he himself becoming a sacrifice. The desolator that later came in relation to that timeline was the Roman emperor that then destroyed the holy city, Jerusalem. Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15-20, Luke 21:20-24, Luke 21:5-6, Daniel 9:24-26.
The teaching of the rapture is a lie, for the “rapture” is a misinterpretation of the gathering of the chosen that happens shortly after the second coming of Jesus Christ, falsely stating that men will vanish and go to heaven before the second coming of Jesus Christ. The truth is that the chosen will be visibly gathered by angels shortly after the blast of the seven trumpets after Jesus Christ descends at his coming, where the chosen will be gathered at last trumpet that will be blasted on the Day of Redemption, otherwise called Yom Kippur. The chosen will be taken to meet Jesus Christ in the air, as more events will unfold days thereafter related to his second coming. Levitus 25:9-11, Ephesians 4:30, I Corinthians 15:51-54.
Europe will become a “United States of Europe” and become the eighth and final head of the vision of the first beast of the book of Revelation. She will be given authority by ten entities who have not been given authority yet, where they both rule for “one hour”, which is 15 days, before she is destroyed at the second coming of Jesus Christ. This is why the first beast only has seven heads, because by the time the eighth head comes, the coming of Jesus Christ is already at hand for the eighth head to not even be counted as one of the seven heads, because of the very short time it will exist. The first seven heads of the first beast were the Egyptians, then the Assyrians, then the Babylonians, then the Medo-Persians, then the Greeks, then the Romans, then the Ottomans. They were all powerful kingdoms that are related because they each came against the people of God one way or another. Everyone in the newly formed United States of Europe who is not one of the elect will be thrown into the lava lake, which is the interpretation of the beast being thrown into the lake of fire. Daniel 7:23, Revelation 13:1, Revelation 17:15, Revelation 17:10, Revelation 17:11, Revelation 13:2, Daniel 7:3-4, Daniel 7:5, Daniel 7:6, Daniel 7:7, Genesis 15:13.
The year of the second coming of Jesus Christ will probably be around 2027 AD, around the days of the Festival of Trumpets, which is Rosh Hashanah, which will be around the beginning of autumn, for although we do not know the hour nor the day of the second coming of Jesus Christ, we can come to know the approximate year and time based on the 1,290 years of Daniel, which began around 599 BC when temple sacrifices ceased, to around 692 AD when the Dome of the Rock was built on the site of the holy temple as an “abomination of desolation”, then another 1,335 years mentioned in Daniel, which ends around 2027 AD, where in the autumn of 2027 AD is also the start of a year of Jubilee counting years in cycles of 50 from a known year of Jubilee that began in the autumn of 27 AD, which was in the year after Jesus Christ became anointed with the holy spirit, which was around the autumn of 26 AD, where the autumn of 26 AD was the start of a Sabbatical year that preceded the Jubilee the following year, which correlated with the 70 weeks of Daniel, which began around 458 BC from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem to the time of the anointing of Jesus Christ around 483 years later, where he died around the spring of 30 AD three and a half years after receiving the holy spirit. Also, we know Jesus Christ will return around the Festival of Trumpets since his return comes with the sound of trumpets. Daniel 12:11, Daniel 12:12, Leviticus 25:8-10, I Corinthians 15:51-54, 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Ezra 7:11-26, Nehemiah 2:1-9, Ezra 9:9, Daniel 9:24-25, John 1:32, Luke 4:18-21, Isaiah 61:1-2, Leviticus 25:10-11, Daniel 9:26, 1 Corinthians 5:7, Romans 3:25, Daniel 9:27, Matthew 26:28, Hebrews 10:10-12, Jeremiah 31:31, Mark 16:15, Matthew 24:1-2, Luke 21:20-22, Matthew 24:15-18, Daniel 11:15-31, 2 Thessalonians 2:4, Daniel 11:36, 1 John 2:18, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, Daniel 8:9-12, Daniel 8:21-25.
There will be two prophets, otherwise called the “two witnesses” of the book of Revelation, that will appear 3.5 years prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ around the spring of 2024 AD and will die in Jerusalem. There exists a distinction between the “42 months” and “1,260 days” in Revelation, even though they both equate to the same time expressed differently, because one time is figurative and the other is literal, therefore, whatever is declared figuratively in months means each figurative day is one literal year, and whatever is declared in days means literal days. Both these times are mentioned in same passage in Revelation concerning the witnesses and the holy city, where the holy city is trampled for 42 figurative months, which equates to 1,260 literal years, and the prophesying of two witnesses happens for 1,260 days, which equates to 1,260 literal days, or 42 literal months, or 3.5 literal years. As such, they will have authority to bring whatever plagues they want as often as they want. They will be killed during the trumpet blasts related to the second coming of Jesus Christ, hence why they are mentioned between the sixth and seventh trumpets of Revelation. As such, since we know the time of their death, which will be in autumn in relation to the Festival of Trumpets, then we also know the time of their appearance will be around the spring 3.5 years prior. They will be killed by the newly formed United States of Europe. Revelation 11.
A new temple of God will be built before the second coming of Jesus Christ, hence why John was told to go measure the temple in the book of Revelation, which is in the same passage as the two witnesses of Revelation. The new temple will be built on Mount Moriah, which was where the first temple was built, and the second temple on the ruins of the first, which is where the Dome of the Rock currently is. As such, the temple will be built next to the Dome of the Rock, hence “exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles”. Revelation 11:1, Revelation 11:2, 2 Chronicles 3:1, Ezra 5:15-16, Daniel 12:11, Revelation 11:2, Revelation 11:3-4, Revelation 11:8.
The temple Ezekiel saw in a vision will be built by Jesus Christ during his thousand year rule, hence “in the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains” and “here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the LORD”. The temple will be built on Mount Zion, which will be a tall mountain, which will have a city on the south side of the mountain. This is also why the elect will be “kings and priests”, because not only will the elect rule over nations, but will be priests for this glorious temple. Ezekiel 40:2-5, Revelation 20:4, Isaiah 2:2-3, Micah 4:1, Haggai 2:7-9, Zechariah 6:12, Zechariah 8:3, Psalm 132:11-18, Revelation 5:10, Zechariah 6:13, Ezekiel 40:47, Ezekiel 42:13.
The Vatican will be destroyed by the ten entities that give their authority to the newly formed United States of Europe. The Vatican will first be exposed, then ransacked, then burned with fire. Revelation 17:6, Revelation 17:16, Revelation 17:9-10.
The United States fulfills the vision of the second beast of the book of Revelation, which has demonstrated great power by its own technology to fulfill “it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people”, to where it has bombed and destroyed entire cities, among other technological wonders it has demonstrated in various industries, such as communications, transportation, and medicine, which has caused the entire world to be deceived and to want to mimic it. This nation has spread its way of life to the entire world, which includes entertainment with movies and music, financial system of debt, its sexual lewdness, and decadence. Everyone in the United States who is not one of the elect will be thrown into the lava lake, which is the interpretation of the false prophet being thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 13:11, Revelation 13:12, Revelation 13:13, Revelation 13:14, Revelation 13:11.
The image of the beast that the United States compels the inhabitants of the earth to form are “democratic” forms of government, which all image what the beast formerly was in the time of the Romans, a democracy, which the United States itself also became, in the image of Rome. This form of government is evil because it bases good or evil on the vote of the majority, as opposed to the Law of God. Revelation 13:14-15.
The mark of the beast are the social security system, which is the name of the beast, and the federal reserve banking system, which is the number of its name. These are the two systems that are compelled on everyone small and great, rich and poor, to be able to buy and sell, which are based on sin because interest and usury are forbidden by the Law. Whoever repents must rescind or stop using social security, which includes stop making payments into it, and must close their bank accounts. All forms of insurance are also usury, such as automobile, health, and life insurances. 666 refers to the man Solomon, which relates to the measure of gold he received, which in turn relates to the gold based system of the Federal Reserve. Revelation 13:16, Revelation 13:17, Ezekiel 18:13, Ezekiel 18:8, Deutereonomy 23:19, 2 Corinthians 6:14, Revelation 13:18, 1 Kings 10:14, 2 Chronicles 9:13, Nehemiah 5:7-10.
Borrowing from unbelievers is a sin, not only because it is sin to acquire debts of interest, but because the Law forbade borrowing from the Gentiles, hence “you shall not borrow”. This is also why Paul said, be “indebted to no one”. A believer may only borrow from another fellow believer, and whichever believers gives to him, must give without expecting anything in return. Deuteronomy 15:6, Romans 13:8, Deuteronomy 28:12-13, Proverbs 22:7, 2 Corinthians 6:14 , 1 Corinthians 6:1, Exodus 22:25, Acts 4:32, Luke 6:34, Matthew 10:8, Psalm 112:5, Deuteronomy 15:1-2, Deuteronomy 15:9, Acts 4:34-35, Luke 6:35, Acts 10:2-4, Matthew 22:39-40, Proverbs 19:17, Deuteronomy 15:7-8, Matthew 5:42, 1 John 3:17.
