Evolution and how it can (never) work

Evolution is a fascinating scam. Supposed intelligent people love it because it leaves God out of their lives. The not so intelligent just get bamboozled by the used car salesman scientists and cannot even figure out what they are talking about. Even many Christians are duped and deceived and believe the consensus.

Every single celled + organism has a DNA string within the nucleus of the (every) cell. Us humans have billions of cells and each cell has the exact same DNA strand. Monkeys have a different DNA strand. Bananas have another different DNA strand. What evolutionists try and tell us is that for example that one or more land based reptiles became air based reptiles. e.g. raptor to Pterodactyl say. So the DNA for a land based reptile will need to make the legs shorter and lighter, grow wings, long thick tail to short thin tail, reptile head to bird like head, lips for beak and rearrange teeth. All bones will have to be hollowed out for the said raptor to fly. This is just a small sample. Not one evolutionist has yet come up with a mechanism how these changes could be made but they will denigrate you to death if you disagree and assert there stand under all circumstances.

Ok so lets come up with a reasonable argument that evolution is impossible. I am going to make the claim that DNA is a very sophisticated computer program. The basic structure of a computer program is that you have Program Code and Data. The Program Code just tells the computer what to do with the data. There are also inputs and outputs. Example the keyboard is an input and the screen is an output. The data can be mixed in with the program code or the data can be separated. In the machines I worked with there were three layers. Program Store, Reference Store and Data Store. The Reference Store was a look up table that made looking up program numbers and data placement easily.

So now we have a computer program. For ease lets say we write and compile a program which displays on the screen, “Good Morning Steven.” Pretty simple especially in Basic or Pascal Language. Ok but we now want our program to add a few more words say “How are you today”. What do we need to do? We need to rewrite our original code and add the extra bits then recompile. However the interesting thing is that the majority of the original code will still be there. We only make a couple of little changes. Did our program evolve? Of course not. The systems I worked on had around one thousand programs all organized into their different functions. If there was a change done to basic function maybe only one program needed to be recompile and inserted in the system however if a new function was introduced then there would be major rewrites in quite a few programs. On the other hand many other programs did not need changes. BTW I was a troubleshooter for Telstra and Ericsson for the Mobile Telephone systems.

Back to DNA. The DNA has all the information to run our bodies (cats, dogs, snakes, bananas etc). We have DATA. That is our genetic characteristics for example skin color, eye color, hair color etc etc Other DATA is cell characteristics. Skin cells are different from nerve cells and blood cells etc etc. All that is data. Other parts of the DNA is the control data for running the different parts of the body. For example each cell divides every few hours. There will be a program control in the DNA which specifies the timing and the order of the divide.

Now I have compared a computer program with living cells DNA. Let us examine the raptor to pterodactyl example. We need wings. In the DNA we need the data for wing size, muscle configuration. The brain also needs information on when the flying creature flaps these wings. So given even this little sample size wouldn’t you think that there is a program rewrite and recompile?? Evolutionists do not yet have a mechanism for adding information to the DNA yet we can see that we need a lot of information added just for wings. However this is the big BUT. Most of the DNA will be exactly the same as our raptor. You see this is where scientists get their knickers in a knot. They see so much similarity yet something so different. The main reason is that most of the functions from say bird to mammal are identical. Internal Organs, blood vessels, blood itself,  eyes. I would hate to know how many processes there are in a human body. There would be 10’s of thousands.

Interesting information about computers. Memory failure is common in all computers. It is usually bits. For those not computer savvy, 8 bits make a byte. Two bytes make a word. If there is a bit failure the computer can detect the error, mark the Byte as faulty and rewrite it in another part of the computers data store. This is equivalent to a mutation. In a cell DNA can get damaged a couple of ways. During the cell split the DNA strand is error checked. If something went wrong and it is detected then the split cell is killed. DNA can be damaged by incoming radiation. Skin Cells damaged by UV for example. Sometimes the damage is detected and fixed. Sometimes the damage is too much to fix. In many cases damage goes undetected. For example sperm cells and/or female egg cells could have damaged DNA when they fuse but the damage doesn’t stop the growth of a fetus and you could end up with a deformed baby or a child with continuous health problems. This damage is usually to the program control part of the DNA but there is also data damage. This is not added information. You do not get a new species or evolution you get imperfection.

Living organisms are very complex computer programs. Each living creature is a SIM. So who wrote these computer programs? It can only be the one who created all living creatures, the heavens and the earth. The Father , Son and Holy Spirit the ones we call GOD. The Almighty Ones and one of them came to live with us and save us from our rebelliousness.

For Mormons or those who talk to Mormons

I had an amazing revelation a few days ago. I was told that Joseph Smith was approached by an angel with the gold plates of which has been called the Book of Mormon. After he had copied what was on the gold plates the angel and the gold plates disappeared. The angel was not from the Lord but from Satan and the gold plates were fiction. Joseph Smith was deceived. If he had read his scripture he would have known this.

Gal 1:8  But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.
Gal 1:9  As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.

How important is Paul in writing the scriptures. The Apostle Peter wrote,

2Pe 3:15  And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him,
2Pe 3:16  as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.

Peter recommended Paul who in turn told us not to believe angels who give us a “different” Gospel.

Paul wrote Eph 2:8  For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
Eph 2:9  not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
and
Rom 10:9  because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Rom 10:10  For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Rom 10:11  For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”

Joseph Smith was unfortunately deceived by a spiritual being. It is time for that deception to end.

Success & Failure

One of the things that I find difficult to reconcile with life in the spiritual world is the application of success and failure. Most of us humans are results orientated.  We do something and if the end result satisfies then we have succeeded and if not we have failed. There are plenty of books out there which advise us on goal setting whether short, medium or long term and we lay out a strategy for achieving that goal. However in Kingdom of God world this does not apply. Ok it does still apply but in a different way. For example you may have been called to be a church minister so you do all the stuff that needs doing to get that position. You have your own church and then 10 years later you have a congregation of 51 (it was 50 ten years previous) and that could be about the definition of failure in worldly terms. Maybe you grew your church to a congregation of 500 and you feel like you have been successful. But is this the KOG’s definition of success or failure. The answer is certainly not.

1Co 9:24  Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.
1Co 9:25  Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.
1Co 9:26  So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air.
1Co 9:27  But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

So where to we start with this discipline stuff so that we can be successful. A good start are the fruits of the spirit.

Gal 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
Gal 5:23  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Gal 5:24  And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Gal 5:25  If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.

A successful Christian is one who makes gains in the fruit of the spirit. Do you love more today then yesterday? more joy? more of that list.

Another trait that makes a successful Christian is how well we hear the voice of God and do it.

Jas 1:22  But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
Jas 1:23  For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror.
Jas 1:24  For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.
In my example above the person heard the call to be a minister and went about the process of achieving that goal so he is successful up to that point.

Success and failure in the Kingdom is not about what we achieve since what we achieve could be very little yet if our fruit grows and we hear God’s voice and do then we are successful. Jesus said that one will plant, another waters and yet another harvests. The harvester on the surface achieves much but it is on the back of the planter and the waterer. I remember a story and movie where five guys wanted to be missionaries to a small group of Indians in the Amazon. When these five made contact they were killed. The end result that nearly all those Indians became Christians. For these 5 they never saw any achievement and I guess that as they were being attacked they would have seen abject failure.

I was watching a remembrance service a few weeks ago. A rather famous pastor was recounting what a prophet told him. “God gave you a large church to keep you out of the way.” This Pastor at the time was probably thinking he was a great success since he had a large congregation only to be deflated that it was to keep him busy and out of the way. God’s definition of success and failure is different from ours.

As I write this I think of how many people will read this, nod their heads and take these words to heart or ignore it all together. I have to give up the thought of being successful or a failure and just do it. It is however frustrating since I still not sure whether I love more or not, do I have more joy, am I kind and gentler than last year ow whether I actually make a difference. I just don’t know but one day I will find out I guess.

Gehenna revisited

I wrote at the end of my last post

“God’s Justice is that those who refused Him will be put in a place where they can be their own God and cannot damage the Kingdom. All the angels that revolted will be put there also.”

I wrote this because of Matthew 25:41

Mat 25:41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

Some people argue that a Loving God would not send people into this fire. There are 2 different doctrines, universal reconciliation and the other is annihilationism. Annihilationism states that human souls will be destroyed. There is however one little problem, and that is the spirit of man   comes from God’s breath and God cannot destroy Himself.

The believers of Universal Reconciliation believe  that God will punish unbelievers for  a short time then let them into the Kingdom of God. The one major problem I have with that is that it nullifies the Christ’s work on the cross. No matter how it is sliced and diced, Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross will be for nothing. God the Father sacrificed Jesus for a reason. Jesus died to take the sins of the world on His shoulders. As Paul says, through one man sin came into the world then through one man reconciliation can take place.

This is what the scriptures say.

Joh 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
Joh 1:13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

Joh 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
Joh 3:15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
Joh 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Joh 3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
Joh 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

In those verses is the condition, “Who believes in His name…..” Sure Jesus took all the sins of the world on His shoulders but the only beneficiaries of this are those who “believe on His name.” Those that do not believe on His name do not benefit from His work on the cross and have to pay for their own sins.

Some people think that eternal fire is too long since there is no infinite sin. This is incorrect logic since Sin is rebellion against God and this is infinite. Those that hate God will hate God forever. Why should God let anybody into His house who hates Him. They will only cause trouble just as Lucifer caused trouble by persuading 1/3 of the angels to follow him. Man being higher than angels will cause even more trouble. Gehenna or the lake of fire was created to stop rebellious humans and angels from ever causing trouble again. God will protect those who love Him against those who hate Him and that is why Gehenna.

God is Just

In the last post I wrote that God is Love and He cannot help it since it is His nature. However this Love is not the sentimental, gooey, romantic kind of Love. It is Love driven by the will not by emotion. God however does have compassion also which is love driven by emotion. We read in Corinthians what God’s kind of Love is.

1Co 13:4  Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant
1Co 13:5  or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
1Co 13:6  it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
1Co 13:7  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
People will tell you what to do because “They Love You”. No they don’t love you – they want to be your boss. People can be obsessed with you but they don’t love you since they don’t follow the above. God does not insist we follow Him. There are consequences if we don’t and this is about His Justice.

Deu_10:18  He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing.
Deu_16:19  You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous.
Deu_16:20  Justice, and only justice, you shall follow, that you may live and inherit the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
Deu_24:17  “You shall not pervert the justice due to the sojourner or to the fatherless, or take a widow’s garment in pledge,
Deu_27:19  “‘Cursed be anyone who perverts the justice due to the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’
Deu_32:4  “The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is he.
A small sample of what God expects.

God may love us while we breathe air on this earth but when death overtakes us then He must execute His Justice.

Eze_18:20  The soul who sins shall die.

If you have put your faith in Jesus you are safe. if not you are not safe. God the Father had Jesus His Son executed on your behalf. If you have refused this Grace then you only have yourself to blame for the consequences. God the Father has to put His love for those who trusted Him as priority for those who refused His love. When you are sentenced, He will still have Love for you but this Love is secondary because He has to do the very best for those who had Faith in Him and His Son.

God’s Justice is that those who refused Him will be put in a place where they can be their own God and cannot damage the Kingdom. All the angels that revolted will be put there also.

God Is Love

1Jn 4:8  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1Jn 4:16  So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
1Jn 4:18  There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

For the vast majority of people and except for two circumstances God LOVES You and will love you until the day you physically die.

1Ti_1:15  The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. <—- Paul was a murderer and he was still saved. For the majority of people it doesn’t matter what your sin is, God still Loves you because God is Love. He cannot help loving you. He loves all of His creation. You cannot say, “God doesn’t Love me.” The Bible emphatically says that He loves you until the end. Even in the end He still loves you but because of His Justice He needs to sentence you.

If you do not think that God loves you then guess where those thoughts come from. It is the devil whispering in your ear. “Look what you have done – God cannot possibly love you after that.” There you go sinning again, God is really beginning to hate you.” All these thought are from the devil, not God. God is Love and I repeat that God cannot stop loving you.

The ironic part about God’s Love is that there are Christians who doubt God’s Love. They are supposed to read the Bible and the verses above specifically say, “God is Love.” The is a great song call “Amazing Love”. This is one line of lyrics.

Amazing love,
How can it be
That You, my King, should die for me?
Amazing love,
I know it’s true.
It’s my joy to honor You,
In all I do, I honor You.

It took Chris Tomlin a bit of time to work out that God loves him. I do realize that head knowledge is not the same as heart knowledge (revelation) but we could quicken up the operation by accepting that God Loves us because He cannot help it. Sometimes I have doubts about God’s love for me but very quickly (minutes) realize that the devil is speaking to me. My circumstances have nothing to do with God’s love for me but are a direct result of the devil hating me.

 

What are those two conditions above that will result in God not forgiving you. The first is Blaspheming the Holy Spirit. The religious leaders of Jesus’ time said that his power came from the devil. That is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said NO FORGIVENESS.

The other condition is hardness of heart. If a person lacks conscience and increases his/her sin then the heart becomes harder and harder until even God’s love cannot break through. These type of people would not be reading this Blog so if you are reading this then you won’t have this hardness of heart problem.  :))

God is Love. Jesus died so you can be saved from your sins. You are not an exception – He still loves you. It is Amazing Love and Amazing Grace. Paul wrote it this way.

Rom 8:35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
Rom 8:36  As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
Rom 8:37  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Rom 8:38  For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
Rom 8:39  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

God is Love and HE WANTS YOU.

Revelation of John

Mat 25:13  Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

Many people don’t think it is worthwhile to know anything about the last days. Some think because they are doing their Christian stuff that when Jesus returns He will praise them and some will be correct about that. The above verse precedes the parable of the talents. However their will be many who won’t be doing their Christian stuff. The will tell you that they are doing their Christian stuff and you may even think they are but they are not. Jesus says, “Watch therefore…” so He is telling us to watch. With that in mind I just would like to summarize John’s Revelation starting with Chapter 6.

We begin with Jesus opening the Seven Seals.

1. White horse, rider with a bow but no arrows and a conqueror.

2. Red horse, great sword and war.

3. Black horse, famine and inflation

4. Pale horse, death by sword, plague and wild animals which is interesting in itself.

5. Great persecution – the saints are beheaded. They will probably be blamed for the first 4 seals.

6. Great calamity like an earthquake plus. The unbelievers cower. They know God is doing it all.

7. Power is now handed over to the Seven Trumpets.

We have Seven angels blowing seven trumpets.

1. 1/3 of the earth is burned

2. 1/3 of the sea creatures died + ships destroyed.

3. Water made bitter and people die.

4. 1/3 of the incoming light will stopped

5. Only people without God’s seal will be harmed. People in pain but no death. Maybe nerve gas.

6. 1/3 of mankind killed.

7. The 7th trumpet signals a time for praise in Heaven. I believe that this will be the rapture of the Saints.

Rev 11:18  The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.”
Rev 11:19  Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple. There were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail.

Also Paul says 1Co 15:52  in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
The LAST TRUMPET which I think is the 7th trumpet above in Revelation.

The Seven Bowls.

1. Painful sores on those with the Mark of the Beast

2. Every living thing in the sea died.

3. All fresh water becomes blood.

4. The sun scorches the earth.

5. Total darkness descends on the earth.

6. Armies assemble at Armegeddon

7. Hailstones, Islands wiped out, mountains razed.

In between the descriptions of all that can go wrong are some interludes. Interlude 1 is at Chapter 7. This describes the calling and sealing of the 144,000 – 12,000 from each tribe of Israel. This 144,000 is mentioned again in Chapter 14.

Interlude 2 is at Chapter 10 and John is given a secret.

Interlude 3 is at Chapter 11 and describes the 2 witnesses.

Rev 11:3  And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”
Rev 11:4  These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.
Rev 11:5  And if anyone would harm them, fire pours from their mouth and consumes their foes. If anyone would harm them, this is how he is doomed to be killed.
Rev 11:6  They have the power to shut the sky, that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying, and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague, as often as they desire.
Rev 11:7  And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that rises from the bottomless pit will make war on them and conquer them and kill them,
Many believe they will have their ministry in the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation period. I tend to agree with this. The major question is who are these 2 people. They could be Elijah and Enoch since neither of them died. They could be people who are alive now and are in the likeness of Moses and Elijah. Either way they are a marker in the tribulation that we are underway. They will be killed and 3 days later they will rise from the dead.

Interlude 4 in Chapter 12 is a sweeping history of Satan and his pursuit of the Israelite s and of course Jesus Himself when He was on earth 2000 years ago. 

Interlude 5 is Chapter 13 and tells us the rise of The beast from the sea. He will be Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot all rolled into one. After him will come the beast of the earth – the false prophet and he will compel people to worship the first beast.

 

Ok that is the summary of the end. There is much unrest in the world at the moment. Many governments are going bankrupt and people are losing their jobs. Many young people around the world cannot even find jobs. Protests are rising in many countries.  The USA is losing its power and this is emboldening Putin in Russia. We could be on the verge but all we can o is watch.

Facts & Opinion

There was a news item a few days ago where some researcher stated that there were mistakes in the Bible. He claimed that camels were only domesticated about 1000BC and that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob could not have had camels. Well really and the evidence for that is ?  Hate to tell this guy but HTF can you claim something like that when we live 4000 years after Abraham and Isaac and 3000 years after your claim. What is it with these people that they want to say the bible has mistakes? Ok I am getting a bit hot under the collar here. I then started to get into a discussion with some dimwit that there are no facts in the bible anyway.

So now I am not going to debate the “facts” or “opinions” of the bible since people want to believe whatever they want anyway. So lets get down to some real down and dirty facts.

http://www.thetravelingteam.org/stateworld/statistics/growth-church

According to this website there are added to the church every year 60 million people. That means there are 60 million new Christians who believe the bible and any amount of “supposed” mistakes are not changing their mind. There are more new people becoming Christians every year than the total number of atheists in the world. So lets ask some questions to the atheists and God haters of the world. What reward do you get for being an atheist and god hater? What makes you give up glory and riches in the Kingdom of God for some bleak unknown future? I liken it to the Pink Floyd song “Wish You Were Here”.

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

People argue evolution V creation – it doesn’t matter because 60 million people per year have faith in God’s Word.

People argue over free will over determinism – It doesn’t matter because 60 million people per year put their faith in the Bible.

People over the centuries have burned the bible yet it is still the world’s best selling book.

Marx has lost, Islam has lost, Atheists have lost. Will you lose your place in the Kingdom because you decided to trade hot air for a cool breeze? You will die one day and you will have to face Jesus. Before throwing you someplace where you can be your own God, you will get a glimpse of what you gave away and see all those people which were part of the 60 million per year who came to Christ and you didn’t. And them folks is the facts.

The Heart of God

When people read the bible how do they perceive God? If you read the prophets the perception is one of an angry God, Deuteronomy and Leviticus shows us the legal God, The Gospel of John a compassionate God. Intermixed is varying degrees of these perceptions. When God destroys the earth and almost everything in it we see the God with a big stick. When we see Jesus heal people we see God with a compassionate heart.

We need to be able to see the big picture so we can appreciate the little things that play out. So what is the big picture? The Almighty Ones are sitting around chewing the fat and decide that they want to get their creative side working. So they make a decent house and employ a few billion servants (angels). The servants live in their presence, enjoy the light and the love and they go about their work in joyous harmony. Angels have free will but very little creative capability. One important player is Lucifer, the angel of light. He is the leader of the angels and can do pretty much as he pleases.

Eze 28:12  “Son of man, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord GOD: “You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Eze 28:13  You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, emerald, and carbuncle; and crafted in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created they were prepared.
Eze 28:14  You were an anointed guardian cherub. I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked.
Eze 28:15  You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you.

God meanwhile decided to move ahead with another project – Man. He created a very beautiful earth and the universe as we know it today. He created Adam and Eve and set them down in the Garden of Eden and He only had one requirement – Don’t eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Tree of Life was also there. Now we get back to Lucifer. Eze 28:17  Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.  Lucifer became proud in the midst of heaven. He was undoubtedly jealous of Adam and Eve. They had everything the angels had plus more – creativity. He pushed Eve to eat from the TotKoGaE. There was a war in heaven, Lucifer got kicked out and 1/3 of the angels followed. Lucifer became Satan and the fallen angels, demons and they live here with us. That is the overall situation.

Satan hates us mankind and will use fear, humiliation and any other tyrannical device to get us to worship him instead of God. God wants to use love, kindness and other similar devices to get us to worship Him. People have asked me why didn’t Jesus use His power to show us the way. The answer is that if Jesus used the power the people would have submitted in fear. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit do not want submission in fear – they want submission in love. Satan is the submission in fear guy. This is the big picture. When God uses the big stick it is not for us to submit, it is to do a clean out. The earth and everything in it belongs to God so God can do as He likes, when He likes for whatever reason He likes. However He does like to stick to the rules also mainly to show the angels that He is fair. From Adam to Noah there were no rules. According to Enoch, some angels were able to procreate with human females. These produced hideous offspring which corrupted the original world. In my opinion the evil was far worse than anything we have seen in the last 3000 years. God did a clean out. In the new world, I believe he put restrictions on Satan and the demonic horde and probably even restricted Himself.

We see t he rise of Abraham and then the nation of Israel. Then the rules were put in place and the stage was set for the coming of the Son of God. Meanwhile history ebbed and flowed. Evil would take over a bit then righteousness. God knows that worshipping Satan is a BAD thing. The Old Testament prophets are urging the children of Israel to stop worshipping idols and worship God instead. That is why we see and angry God. But he knows best and wants the best and He is not getting through. It was probably very frustrating but God is patient and He would wait a long time before taking action. When the Hittites took Israel is was another clean out. When the Babylonians took Judah it was another clean out. Warning, warning, warning, action.

The heart of God is one of love, mercy, compassion, justice. He created the legal framework that our sins are forgiven and we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Our part is to have faith – to believe that the Son of God came in the flesh, that he died and rose again. He wants to make it as easy as possible. Satan wants to make it as hard as possible. That is one of the reasons that there are so many denominations and cults that make us want to jump through hoops.  How easy you ask.

Joh 1:12  But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
Joh 1:13  who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

Joh 3:14  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
Joh 3:15  that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
Joh 3:16  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Rom 10:9  because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Rom 10:10  For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Rom 10:11  For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”

Eph 2:8  For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
Eph 2:9  not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Believing in Jesus, faith pleases the Father and this is salvation. The thief on the cross asked Jesus, “Remember me when you come into your Kingdom.” Jesus replied, “Before this day ends you will be with me in Paradise.”

That is the real and true heart of God
