The Angelic Conflict. Part 35. The reason for the continuation of the universe, angels, and the human race.

Thursday, February 9, 2006

They not only reject Christ as Savior in a perfect environment, but they end up being deceived once again by the great deceiver, his majesty the devil.

The fact that man has 1,000 years of perfect environment, and revolts against perfect environment, is a demonstration of the principle that the happiness you have right now is the same happiness you would have in perfect environment.

During the Millennium there is no military establishment, ISA 2:4, HOS 2:18, MIC 4:3, PSA 46:9.

ISA 2:4 And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war.

HOS 2:18 “In that day [Millennium] I will abolish the bow, the sword, and war from the land, And will make them lie down in safety.”

This is parallel to the nation of Israel when they became the first client nation to God, and they were leaving Egypt and were threatened at the Red Sea.

The threat to Israel was the best organized armored force of the day, Pharaoh’s chariot army who were very well-trained.

From the human viewpoint, this is a sudden disaster and a hopeless situation.

As the Lord did for Israel, that is exactly what is going to happen in Rev 20, the Lord will do the fighting.
When you are in a hopeless situation that is when you need to think.

1SA 17:47 “And that all this assembly may know that the Lord does not deliver by sword or by spear; for the battle is the Lord’s and He will give you into our hands.”

ROM 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
HEB 1:3 He upholds all things by the word of His power.

The continuation of the universe and all of its creatures and the stable state of the atmosphere depends on the omnipotence and immutability of Jesus Christ, COL 1:17; HEB 1:3.

Even when TLJC was a baby He was still God holding the universe together, HEB 10:5.

Even on the cross, TLJC was holding the universe together so that He could suffer in His humanity for the sins of the entire world.

The universe with its matter, energy, and operating laws of God will not always exist as it does at the present time, 2PE 3:10-12; REV 21:1.

By the word of His power, Jesus Christ holds the universe together, HEB 1:3.
MAT 28:20 “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
HEB 13:5 “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”

Jesus Christ is holding the universe together to resolve the angelic conflict in human history and to bring many sons into glory, HEB 2:10.

The Lord Jesus Christ is holding the universe together in order to allow grace, which began with the Holy Spirit radiating heat over the ice pack, to run its full course until He destroys the universe by nuclear fission at the end of history.

Someday the universe will be destroyed, but the word of God will survive the destruction of the universe, as will the believer in resurrection body, HEB 12:26-28.

1PE 1:25 But the word of the Lord abides forever. “And this is the word which was preached to you.”
MAT 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words shall not pass away.”

A miracle is an event that contradicts known scientific laws and is thought to be due to supernatural causes, especially an act of God.

LUK 8:25 “He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?
He controls the sea, JOB 26:10, PSA 33:7.
He controls the storms, PSA 65:7, PSA 107:29.

He controls the wind, PSA 148:8; MAR 4:39.
He controls the rain, GEN 7:4.
He controls the thunder and hail, EXO 9:33.

He tells the snow to come upon the earth, JOB 37:6.
He makes the lightning, JER 10:13.

MAT 10:29-30 “Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And {yet} not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”

Superior numbers are inconsequential against God’s plan and God’s people.

LEV 26:8 five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall before you by the sword.

Absolute truth and/or Bible doctrine is right whether one person believes it or a million.

Well-armed by Satan and possessing over-whelming numbers, the revolutionary army has great confidence in Satan and the fact that they outnumber believers in the Millennium.

The power of arrogance is always greater than the power of prosperity.

Arrogance demands power.

Once again our Lord in His infinite perfection and righteousness uses violence to stop violence forever.

It is a place of unspeakable misery indicated by the term, “everlasting fire,” MAT 25:41.
It is a place where the worm [human conscience] never dies and the fire is never quenched, MAR 9:44.

It is a place where fire is unquenchable, LUK 3:17.
It is called a furnace of fire, MAT 13:42.
MAR 9:49 “For everyone will be salted with fire.”

REV 14:11 “the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever and they have no rest day or night”
