New Racial species and the new spiritual species in the Angelic Conflict. Part 2.

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

MAT 25:41
Then He will also say to those on His left, “Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;”

The formal presentation of Satan’s appeal trial corresponds to Old Testament history with basically the Jews as a race and Israel as a nation as the center of the conflict.

Next is the rebuttal phase: The rebuttal arguments of the prosecution [God] followed by the rebuttal arguments of the defense [Satan].

The rebuttal phase of the prosecution is coterminous with the Christocentric dispensations - and there are two, the hypostatic union and the Church-age.

Dispensations are divine categories of human history; therefore, both the divine outline and the divine interpretation of human history.

Dispensations are the vehicle by which believers living at a specific time in history can orient to God’s will, plan, and purpose for their lives.

There are only two dispensations or periods of time in human history where Christ lives inside of man, the dispensation of the hypostatic union and the Church-age.

1TI 3:16 And by common confession great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, Was vindicated in the Spirit, Beheld by angels, Proclaimed among the nations, Believed on in the world, Taken up in glory.

These two dispensations or periods of time are when God presents His case and reveals His justice and righteousness and love to the maximum.

Our Lord and the invisible heroes of the Church-age are the two main witnesses for the prosecution.

Legitimate evidence is based on two or three witnesses being interrogated independently and agreeing to their testimony.

Is God just or unjust?

Has God been fair with His creatures?

How can a loving God cast His creatures in the lake if fire?

Finally comes the closing argument and summary: first by the prosecution [God] and then by the defense [Satan].

The witnesses will be the Tribulational winners and Millennial winners, basically from the new racial species.

First, there is the formal presentation of the case: the prosecution presents its case, followed by the defense presenting its case.
Is God just or unjust?
Has God been righteous concerning His creatures?
How can a loving God cast His creatures in the lake if fire?

His justice is revealed by His fairness in dealing with the fall of mankind and by judging sin.
His righteousness is revealed by the fact that He was willing to forsake His own Son while judging sin.
His love is revealed by the fact that He offered salvation to anyone who would believe upon TLJC.

Your only purpose in life is to be a tactical winner in the angelic conflict by being called to the witness stand as an invisible hero; all other blessings are simply a great dessert after you’re already full.

Phase 1: The trial phase. This begins with the fall of man in the garden and continues until the beginning of the dispensation of the Hypostatic Union.

Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Rahab (who helped the Jews), Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, Nathan, Gad, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Habakkuk, Zechariah, Malachi, Amos, Joel, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Zephaniah, and Haggai.

Example: Jericho. Did it make sense for the army of Israel to march around Jericho 7 times with the ark of the covenant and then shout and blow trumpets?

They were empowered out of weakness, much like Paul in 2CO 12:9, “for my power is perfected in your weakness,” or 2CO 12:10b, “for when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Gideon and 300 mature believers defeated 185,000 Arabs and put them to flight as they chased them for miles, completely annihilating their army.

None of these who obtained divine commendation because of the doctrine in their souls has yet obtained the ultimate promise, the blessings that follow resurrection life.

Yet in the second phase of the trial, the rebuttal phase, God will create a creature, a new spiritual species that will have the opportunity to enjoy the “resurrection life” in time.

After the formal trial of the OT, God turns up the heat for the rebuttal phase, and brings in His star witness, TLJC, and millions of His true witnesses, whose lives will attest to His Righteousness, Justice, and Love.

It’s application of the wonderful mystery doctrine that we have that will exalt us to the high calling of true witnesses.

God has so graciously planned that He will not begin His closing arguments in the AC until the true worshippers of God are called to the witness stand to prove beyond any reasonable doubt, to elect and fallen angels, that His Righteousness, Justice, Love, and Grace are not only pure and true, but that they go beyond what anyone ever thought possible.

Concerning us, God foresaw and provided a better thing for us in order that without us (believers in the present dispensation) they would not be perfected or completed!

ISA 49:6 He says, “It is too small a thing that
You should be My Servant
To raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved ones of Israel;
I will also make You a light of the nations So that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”

JOH 4:23 But an hour is coming, and now is [rebuttal phase of AC; HU and CA], when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

2TI 2:4 No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.

Church-age believers, by means of the Rapture, the resurrection or translation of all believers of the Mystery-age, will precede these heroes of past dispensations in resurrection, 1CO 15:23, 1TH 4:16-17.

Witnesses - martus = a witness in a legal sense to testify as eyewitnesses or of a character reference for one being questioned.

It also refers to those, who after our Lord’s example, have proved the strength and genuineness of their faith in Christ by undergoing suffering or even death.

You have studied about these witnesses and how they took the stand and brought glory to God despite the suffering that they experienced, how much more should you be motivated as true witnesses with superior power to follow in their example?

Is not it interesting that the writer of the book of Hebrews, a book written to the Jews of the Church-age, now identifies a transition of witnesses from the Old Testament racial species to the New Testament spiritual species?

“Endurance” - noun hupomone = to dwell under, a patient steadfast waiting for, patient endurance, sustaining.

The believer must abide under the pressure of the Angelic Conflict and not try to escape it.

When you are tempted to quit, consider Him who has endured all temptations and realize you have the same power and assets as He did, and remember that it is for His glory that you are alive.
