33) Days Of Our Lives

Night 7 – Morning 10 are not listed in Genesis because they hadn’t happened yet. We infer them from later references to night and day.

Night: Adam the 2nd’s disconnect from the Singularity source of life plunges all of creation into a four dimensional state leading intractably to entropy and death.

Morning: The first Adam redeems his partner from isolation in death. In doing so he established his likeness to Creator God and brought in a new world order showing how to be accepted by the Singularity source of eternal life. Act – in faith on the same word that brought our mortal life into existence.

Day 8: Reconnection Established

jesus-crucifixion1Evening: The last Adam / Son of God redeems humanity and all creation from death.  The gospel / good news of salvation has always been the same – we can win the battle against spiritual and physical death by faith in God’s promise to substitute another death for ours.

“And the LORD God said unto the serpent…I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise [crush] thy head, and thou shalt bruise [bloody] his heel. (Genesis 3:15)

“And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John…this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee…And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:7-12)

“…behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed…for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” (Revelation 5:5-10)

Rdeemed humans are empowered to take dominion over the earth, whose real treasure is not gold and lands but human souls.

“All power is given unto me in heaven and and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.(Matthew 28:18-19)

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.” (II Corinthians 5:17-20)

Night: Apostasy by the people of God once again allows darkness to overshadow the world. According to scripture, this is our current era. We are currently in the night.

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk [live our lives] honestly, as in the day...” (Romans 13:12-13)

“”But ye, brethren, are not in darkness…Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober…Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [apostasy] first…And then shall that Wicked be revealed…

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.” (I Thessalonians 5:4-6, II Thessalonians 2:2-15)

“God…to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That…we might have a strong consolation…upon the hope set before us…as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast…Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.” (Hebrews 6:17-20)

What is a “high” priest if not the head of many other priests?

There is a chasm between Christianity and Judaism created by Christianity’s narrow focus on Jesus Christ as the only Christ / Messiah / anointed versus scriptural Judaism’s faithfulness to record of many messiahs.

  1. The word “Messiah” is an English rendering of the Hebrew word “Mashiach”, whose translation is “Anointed”.  It usually refers to a person initiated into G-d’s service by being anointed with oil. (Having oil poured on his head.  Cf. Exodus 29:7, I Kings 1:39, II Kings 9:3).
  2. There are many Messiahs in the Bible.  Since every King and High Priest was anointed with oil, each may be referred to as “an anointed one” (a Mashiach or a Messiah).  For example: “G-d forbid that I [David] should stretch out my hand against the L-rd’s Messiah [Saul]…” I Samuel 26:11. Cf. II Samuel 23:1, Isaiah 45:1, Psalms 20:6
  3. in Jewish thought, the Messianic idea is not the most crucial.  However, in Christian thought, the Messiah is paramount.

I put it to you that Christianity’s hyper focus on Jesus is a cheap escape from personal responsibility. Severing Christianity from Judaism allows – not just Dispensationalists, not just Catholics, but also Protestants with Martin Luther’s doctrine of grace – to toss out the clear scriptural demands to identify with haMashiach by becoming hamashiach – a holy, righteous servant of God.

“Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles…he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law…I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the GentilesSing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth,” (Isaiah 42:1-10)

This came to pass with Cyrus the Great, king of kings of the Persians.

Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before himI will…open before him the two leaved gates [of Babylon]that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of IsraelThat they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else!” (Isaiah 45)

It is utterly inconsistent with the clear statement of scripture “For God so loved the world” (John 3:16) to deny that Cyrus is an Anointed One for the purpose of witnessing of the LORD to all mankind

We are specifically told that Noah was a preacher of righteousness, and we know he lived for 350 years after the flood, You can’t possible assume that Noah only had one disciple who went west and no-one else else who went east. History belies that bigotry. We should expect corruption over time, exactly as happened with Judaism and Christianity, but historical evidence demonstrates the same foundational biblical truths are found in Cyrus’ Zoroastrianism as in the first books of the Bible, confirming that God’s word was spread throughout all the Gentile world before Christianity came into play.

Zoroastrianism is an ancient Persian religion that may have originated as early as 4,000 years ago. Arguably the world’s first monotheistic faith, it’s one of the oldest religions still in existence…

The prophet Zoroaster (Zarathrustra in ancient Persian) is regarded as the founder…thought to have been born in what is now northeastern Iran or southwestern Afghanistan. He may have lived in a tribe that followed an ancient religion with many gods…similar to early forms of Hinduism.

Zoroastrianism shaped one of the ancient world’s largest empires—the mighty Persia Empire. It was the state religion of three major Persian dynasties.

Cyrus the Great, founder of the Achaemenid Persian Empire, was a devout Zoroastrian…He ruled by the Zoroastrian law of asha (truth and righteousness)…The beliefs of Zoroastrianism were spread across Asia via the Silk Road, a network of trading routes that spread from China to the Middle East and into Europe.

Some scholars say that tenets of Zoroastrianism helped to shape the major Abrahamic religions – including Judaism, Christianity and Islam—through the influence of the Persian Empire.

Zoroastrian concepts, including the idea of a single god, heaven, hell and a day of judgment, may have been first introduced to the [generation of paganized] Jewish community of Babylonia, where people from the Kingdom of Judea had been living in captivity for decades.

When Cyrus conquered Babylon in 539 B.C., he liberated the Babylonian Jews…

The Faravahar is an ancient symbol of the Zoroastrian faith…representing eternity.

the evergreen cypress tree as a symbol of eternal life

Fire—along with water—are seen as symbols of purity

Zoroastrian places of worship are sometimes called fire temples. Each fire temple contains an altar with an eternal flame that burns continuously and is never extinguished.

The basic tenet of Zoroastrianism is that there is a major battle between good and evil…the god of wisdom and light, Ahura Mazda, and the evil being, Angra Mainyu…

Our role in living is to do good deeds and fight for what is righteous. In order to do that, we must follow three basic commandments.

– good actions (spreading love and kindness, healing the sick, sharing Zoroastrianism to others)
– good speech (speaking what is true, not lying)
– good thoughts (not judging people, desiring to do good, not plotting bad events against others)

The observance of the Laws of the Vendidad is an important pillar of the Zarathushtri religion. [Like the Mosaic code] This includes the concept of menstrual seclusion…and the dreaded impure state of NASU the corpse is in after death, only touchable by the Nassesalars (corpse-bearers) who may then be purified by ritual means…strong moral injuctions against the acts of homosexuality and prostitution, prohibiting these immoral acts.

Faith, and Hope in the coming of the Saoshyant (Saviour) has sustained our religion through the centuries. We firmly hope, and pray, that Ahura Mazda sends the Saoshyant to the earth to defeat evil and further righteousness (Ashoi). The Zarathushtri religion was the first to proclaim that Ahura Mazda will send the Saoshyant, born of a virgin, and many other religions took on this belief.

We firmly believe that when the Saoshyant comes, the final spiritual battle between the forces of good and evil will commence, resulting in the utter destruction of evil. Ristakhiz, the ressurection of the dead will take place – the dead will rise, by the Will of Ahura Mazda…The Final Judgement of all souls will commence, at the hands of Ahura Mazda the Judge (Davar), and all sinners punished, then forgiven, and humanity made immortal and free from hunger, thirst, poverty, old age, disease and death. The World will be made perfect once again, as it was before the onslaught of the evil one. Such is the Frashogad (Frasho-kereti), the Renovation, brought on by the Will of Ahura Mazda, the Frashogar.

Compelling evidence that Cyrus knew the God Of The Whole Earth is that Isaiah’s quote is also applied to Jesus Christ.

And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel…And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus…Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel…for the fall and rising again of many in Israel;(Luke 2:25-34)

And Jesus delegated his role to his apostles.

  • “I have manifested thy name / attributes unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word…and I am glorified / empowered in them.
  • And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we areAs thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.”
  • Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” (John 17)

Did this end with the Apostolic era?

No.

Stephen most likely is the first exemplar of a convert to YHVH’s Savior through the Apostles’s word who became a Melchisedec. We know this, not from his status in the church, but because of the attributes / name he shared with Moses. He spoke with equal authority the same word of God as Jesus and Moses – the Melchizedekian way of salvation from sin to eternal life.

Stephen, more so than perfect Jesus or the apostles who were directly taught by Jesus, is the exemplar for us regular folk. Wherever we are in whatever appears to be a fairly drudge life, we can aspire to become royalty.

“And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. Then there arose certain of 1) the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, 2) and Cyrenians, 3) and Alexandrians, 4) and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen. And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake. Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God. And they…brought him to the council,

This is equivalent to Moses going before Pharaoh and Jesus going before Herod and Pilot.

“And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.”

That is, shining with the glory of God. like Moses’ face, because he was filled with the same Spirit he allowed to speak through him, knowing his life, like Jesus’ was about to be sacrificed.

“And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham…Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs. And the patriarchs, moved with envy…

Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers: Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it. When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.

But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.” (Acts 6-7)

Ready to come down whenever some of you are on the LORD’s side!

Don’t minimize this term “glory” as simply being a magnificent appearance. The ancient, i.e. biblical, meaning of glory is demonstration of power as in the militaristic “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. He has loosed the fateful lightening of his terrible swift sword, His truth is marching on! Glory, Glory Halleluiah!!”

Glory flames up when the Adversary is defeated.

“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven…all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly…the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts…

BUT unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings.”(Malachi 4)

The transfer of the glory of God to humanity comes through facing death.

I leave the world, and go to the Father…These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh,” (John John 16:28, 17:1-2)

The transfer of God’s glory to humans occurs when the Enemy of Life is defeated by God’s Messengers / Messiahs / Chosen Ones willing to face Death by trusting in Life-giving God.

Death is swallowed up in victory…thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (I Corinthians 15:55-57)

“And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.

And as he journeyed…suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus / Joshua / Yeshua / YHVH’s Savior whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do…And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus.” (Acts 9:1-9, 22:11)

The conditions for becoming a royal priest in the line of Melchisedec remain the same.

“And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision…go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus…for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.” (Acts 9:10-16)

“And straightway he preached Messiah / Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God. But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests? But Saul increased the more in strength [through exercising this attribute], and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.” (Acts 9:20-23)

Paul’s letter to the 1st century AD Gentile Ephesians applies equally to Moses speaking to the mixed multitude of Hebrews gathered at Mount Sinai in the 2nd millennium BC.

  • he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy 
  • predestinated us unto the adoption of children
  • made known unto us the mystery of his will that in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in The Promise Seed / Christ
  • ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise are made nigh by the blood of The Promised Seed / Christ
  • For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us
  • Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God
  • To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the congregation of believers including those following Moses at mount Sinai / church the manifold wisdom of God
  • According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord
  • Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, (Ephesians 3)

By now we should recognize what is meant by “household of God, fellowheirs, family.”

Promotion from childish irresponsibility to adult leadership positions.

Be ye followers of me.

“Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.” (Acts 13:46-48)

Can’t get around it. Peter and John bear the essential witness of two others to Paul’s Messianic Gentile leadership claim.

“To the strangers [aliens, non-Jews] scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia…

  • ye are a chosen generation
  • a royal priesthood
  • an holy nation
  • a peculiar people

that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of Godamong the Gentiles: that…they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.” (I Peter 1:2, 2:9-12)

“John to the seven [Gentile] churches which are in Asia [founded by Paul]: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1:4-6)

One significant proof of Paul’s leadership in the Melchizedekian Covenant is his enduring care for his people, to the point of willingness, like Moses and Jesus, to be eternally damned in exchange for eternal life for the people who betrayed and rejected him, and his utter devotion to ministry.

I say the truth in The Promised Seed / Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites; ” (Roman 9:1-4)

Like the people at Mount Sinai, most people don’t want to take on all that entails. Like following Abraham into a suicide mission to rescue a family member and their enemy in the process no less, or being sent into a gang’s base of operations to check on a family member. The vast majority of people who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ want to spend their time enjoying themselves, careless of others‘ needs, unwilling to give up time and money.

Or perhaps it’s not a conscious choice. Maybe we just don’t understand that God expects his “children” to grow up and work with him. Perhaps it’s a lack of Mosaic Messianic leadership among the masses. In any case, it leaves a gaping hole in the body of Christ with a highly questionable consideration for who really belongs.

walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” (Colossians 1:10-14)

exodus-1947

In 1947, in the wake of the St. Louis failed immigration tragedy, the Haganah, the Jewish underground outlawed by the British rulers of Palestine, packed 4,515 Jewish illegal immigrants onto a scrapped vessel designed to hold 500, for a 7 day run from France to Palestine. It was impossible for that leaky vessel captained by a 23 year old sailor and filled to overflowing with the frail, emaciated victims of the death camps, including women and 655 children, to outrun or outfight the navy that had launched Britain to, and maintained her at, an unprecedented level of world power for 200 years. What were they thinking?

The Haganah also brought onboard Rev. John Stanley Grauel, a Methodist minister who was sympathetic to the Zionist cause, to be a witness to the voyage. According to a Baltimore Jewish Times report from July 25, 1947: Grauel was put on the ship for one purpose — because it was very probable the British were going to be able to take the Exodus…”So, if the ship was taken, somebody has to get the information out,” Klinger said. “They said he was a journalist. What his real job was, if the ship was taken, was to tell the story. Because they knew people wouldn’t believe the story if a Jew told it. But what if a Christian told the story? It would be received differently, and that’s exactly what happened…”

The immigrants were forcibly taken off and transported to two camps, Poppendorf and Am Stau, near Lubeck. The site of Jewish survivors of the Holocaust being forcibly relocated to Germany caused an international uproar. World public opinion was outraged and the British changed their policy.

The United Nations Special Committee on Palestine was in Palestine conducting its investigation to determine how to resolve the conflicting demands of the Zionists and Arabs. The treatment of the Exodus refugees apparently influenced some members to advocate a solution that would allow Jews to immigrate freely to a state of their own.

The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum noted the significance of the Exodus saga: Displaced persons in camps all over Europe protested vociferously and staged hunger strikes when they heard the news. Large protests erupted on both sides of the Atlantic. The ensuing public embarrassment for Britain played a significant role in the diplomatic swing of sympathy toward the Jews and the eventual recognition of a Jewish state in 1948.

Have you ever heard of Rev. Grauel? And yet because he was willing to risk his life and his career he was instrumental in birthing the modern Jewish state against all odds. (Whether or not you think that was a good thing.)

But entering the Promised Land is just the first step in an arduous process of reclaiming lost territory in both political and spiritual spheres.

Morning: Just when it seems that all hope is gone and no flesh will be saved alive, the Son of God Lord of Heaven and Earth appears suddenly in a blinding flash of light from heaven that makes an atom bomb pale by comparison.

“the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

    1. the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
    2. And…many angels round about the throne…the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
    3. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump [releasing great ultrasonic power as at Jericho]: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible [the ultimate healing in his wings], and we shall be changed. (I Corinthians 15:51-52)

“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.” (Revelation 20:1-3)

Day Nine – Restoration of a post-apocalyptic world

Evening:

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of YHVH’s Savior, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with God’s Anointed / Christ a thousand years…they shall be priests of God and of Christ…” (Revelation 20:4-6)

Night:

“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations 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. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city…” (Revelation 20:7-9)

But [!] the day of the Lord WILL COME [!] as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” (II Peter 3:10)

Morning: Judgment Day. Surely Hitler got his attitude from his father Satan. “Capitulate? Never. We can go down, perhaps, but we’ll take a world with us.” 

“…and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 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. 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. 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….And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:10-15)

Day Ten – New Heaven and New Earth

Evening: that lasts forever and ever, unlike that first tragic evening in human history when God’s children ran from him.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away… He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” (Revelation 21:1,7)

“And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb / last Adam / YHVH’s Chosen One to have dominion shall be in it; and his servants…shall reign for ever and ever.” (Revelation 22:3-5)
