Rev 20) How We Live Now Determines Our Forever Life

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.” (II Corinthian 5:10-11)

While there are two options of being connected or disconnected from the Singularity, there are degrees of connection, as anyone who has worked in a large organization can testify. I’ve had the experience of having my phone calls to a private number answered promptly, and I’ve also had the experience of a supervisor refusing to answer my calls, blocking requested meetings, and utterly avoiding me because we didn’t see eye to eye.

  1. For if we be dead with him,
    1. we shall also live with him: – the basic package of eternal life for those who identify with YHVH and his savior.
  2. If we suffer,
    1. we shall also reign with him – the upgrade for those who don’t just sit it out but get in the game.
  3. If we deny him,
    1. he also will deny us – fair enough. (II Timothy 2:12-13)

“the Son of man cometh.

  • Who then is a faithful and wise servant…
    • he shall make him ruler
  • But…that evil servant..mite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
    • shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites
  • Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins / brides’ maids, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom…the bridegroom came
    • and they that were ready [Spirt-filled] went in with him to the marriage [consummation of unity]: and the door was shut.
    • And the foolish [were unprepared]…went to [pay the price to obtain oil / iconic for Spirit]Afterward [too late!] came…saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know [am identified with] you not.

Basic package of eternal life granted to the Sons of God, composed of the pre-flood believers from Adam to Noah and many nationalities who separated themselves out from the Sumerian / Canaanite pagan culture to live righteously, AKA Sons of Abraham, scattered throughout the world and losing touch with the homeland but not with YHVH.

“He that overcometh shall inherit all things / eternal life and I shall be his God / empowerment / sustainer of life, and he shall be my son / the spitting image and likeness of God. 

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world…Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. For all that is in the world…is not of the Father…passeth away, and the lust thereof:

    • the lust of the flesh,
    • and the lust of the eyes,
    • and the pride of life,

..and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith… (I John 5:4; 2:15-17) 

“And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the LORDthy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.” (Luke 10:25-28)

I’ve cut out a lot of the arguments Paul was making to convince the Gentiles in Ephesus of their equality with the Jewish leadership, but not to eliminate these arguments. Simply to clarify the foundational point Paul is making in the context of this presentation to the world at large. The Bible makes it clear that we can’t make one clean break between the “Old Testament” of “the Jews” and the “New Testament” of the Christians claiming no-one else besides Christians are saved.

“Abraham our father…of all them that believe…For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith…ye are…fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God…And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets…for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” (Romans 4)

“By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out [from Babylon’s guarantee of protection and daily bread] ..went out, not knowing whither he went…For he looked for a city / walled fort / preservation of life which hath foundations / permanence / eternal, whose builder and maker is God.”(Hebrews 11:8)

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto YHVH’s Savior the author / beginning and finisher / end of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.” (Hebrews 12:1-6)

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world…Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. For all that is in the world…is not of the Father…passeth away, and the lust thereof:

    • the lust of the flesh,
    • and the lust of the eyes,
    • and the pride of life,

..and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith… (I John 5:4; 2:15-17) 

Being “dead with” God’s Anointed Ones doesn’t mean simply mentally considering your punishment of death for your sin was taken on by Jesus Christ so now you also rise to eternal life with him. It means identifying with Yeshua’s entire life of sacrifice and suffering by sharing in that as well. It means accepting public humiliation, rejection by family and friends, enduring loss of jobs, financial insecurity and quality of life in this world.

“endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ…I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. Therefore I endure all things…that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:” (II Timothy 2:3-11)

Sons of God within the nation ruled by the Prince of El / Most High God, i.e Isra-El

“And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them [as human genes permanently indwell mortal flesh], and walk in [mobilize] them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye [Gentile believers] eparate [like the Jews], saith the Lord, and touch not he unclean thing [of paganism]; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters / Rulers, saith the Lord Almighty.” (II Corinthians 6:16-18)

“The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lordand the God of Israel will be your reward…Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very highAs many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: So shall he sprinkle [clean] many nations;” (Isaiah 53:10-15)

And many of the people of the land [Persian Empire] became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them…And all the rulers of the provinces, and the lieutenants, and the deputies, and officers of the king, helped the Jews; because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them. For Mordecai was great in the king’s house, and his fame went out throughout all the provinces: for this man Mordecai waxed greater and greater. The Jews ordained, and took upon them, and upon their seed, and upon all such as joined themselves unto them, so as it should not fail, that they would keep these two days according to their writing, and according to their appointed time every year; And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation.” (Esther 8-9)

Rulers in the Order of Melchizedek, like Joseph / Ephraim, delegated responsibility to ensure everyone’s needs are met.

“And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them – the majority of the inhabitants – their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing…he will make him ruler over all that he hath...And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down [sign of ruling from a throne, while the attendants and supplicants stand] in the kingdom of God. And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.” (Luke 12)

This should not come as a surprise. Over and over in Genesis only the “elect” are “chosen” to inherit the estate and all the administrative responsibilities that come with it, based on demonstrated leadership qualities like –  their likeness to – the Father, but most of the children are still counted in the family.

Just one notable example is that

Servants who aren’t doing right.  No surprises here. They are misrepresenting God out of greed or laziness.

“cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (Matthew 25:30)

We are given biblical examples of living but disconnected from all society.

1133694806_4958“Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Behold, my master hath spared Naaman this Syrian, in not receiving at his hands that which he brought…I will run after him, and take somewhat of him….And he said…My master hath sent me, saying…give…I pray thee, a talent of silver, and two changes of garments. And Naaman said, Be content, take two talents…And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither. And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee…? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants? The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.” (II Kings 5)

Outer darkness should be easily understood from Genesis chapter 1, reinforced by Elisha, to be away from the presence and restorative power of the Singularity. However, Gehazi is still alive and has offspring, which indicates eternal life. He, and others like him, just survive at the fringes of society. Basically a leper colony.

Again with God’s workers. These are not the sheep. They are God’s anointed workers who get carried away with amassing the things of this world despite their temporary nature. Every grand church building and all wealth made of material substance gets burned up with the world. Only hyper dimensional / spiritual beings survive into the new world. Souls of people are the treasures we should be pouring our time and energy into ever-increasing value, not stock portfolios.

Every man’s work shall be made manifest…because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.

      • If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
      • If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” (I Corinthians 3:11-15)

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write…I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot…I will spue thee out of my mouth. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire…As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” (Revelation 3:14-19)
