HEADLINE: "But when human nature is taken up, and the race comes to me and obeys my voice, then he who now hears me shall be united with this race and shall no longer be what he now is, but shall be above them as I am now. For so long as you do not call yourself mine, I am not what I am; but if you hear me, you also as a hearer shall be as I am, and I shall be what I was WHEN YOU ARE AS I AM WITH MYSELF; for from me YOU ARE WHAT I AM," Acts of John 100, New Testament Apocrypha, Volume II, by Hennecke-Schneemelcher.
God's purpose for creating everything is to make a dream come true -- to create a FAMILY to take away His loneliness. For from the beginning HE IS AND WAS ALL there is. There was no north, south, east or west -- no up, down, light or matter -- no solid ground, no universe, no "place" for rest. There was just God! He was in a unique PRISON one cannot adequately describe, suffering the misery of loneliness. He is all there was, for there was NOTHING ELSE ... BUT HIM, Isaiah 45:6-7. Suffering for billions of years of time on an earthly scale, He endured torture for being the only existing entity ... until He thought of a wonderful idea ... to create a "FAMILY". And for that FAMILY, to create everything else for their benefit. This was GOD'S DREAM ... an idea that promised to comfort His suffering, remove His loneliness, and free Him from imprisonment. Because He is the "ALL POWER", He took great thought in careful planning ... HE BEGAN TO MAKE HIS DREAM INTO REALITY.
To God the "Family" means so much. The "Family" is everything! The Family is now what He is living for! The FAMILY is His joy of LIFE! God has shown each generation on a micro scale what the "FAMILY" consists of. HE IS THE FATHER. WISDOM IS THE MOTHER. And there are billions and billions of CHILDREN in generations of a number so vast, they are like the stars in multitude and like the sand on the seashore whose grains cannot be counted. Two ENDS among the children are unique by position and number with a "glory" inherent by birth ... the first born son (and daughter) and the last born son (and daughter). For this FAMILY an EDUCATION in desired individual behavior and a uniform social order for the whole group is required.
God is both Father and Master Teacher. He devised a scheme to teach His children by CONTRAST and COMPARISON. Two creatures were made to provide the "contrast", a direct opposite of His nature and order. Satan and Babylon were created as tools, robot beings, designed to generate dis-order and a NEGATIVE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE required for each member of God's FAMILY on a "stage" called the Earth just outside of God's House (called Heaven). A certain proportion of the good-evil mix is a prescription for each individual FAMILY member when he is sent down as a flesh-bound spirit in his particular generation. So the earthly episode in the life of each man is only the first step of his destined matriculation into eternity, Ecclesiastes 1:13. We must recognize this life for what it is. It is the spring board which finally uplifts each person to Heaven for higher education -- the completion or "perfection" of his learning and graduation to his "place" and number in the FAMILY ORDER. This is God's "purpose" for the FAMILY. The FAMILY cannot be complete and God cannot be fulfilled until the whole number of individual beings He desired are above WITH HIM, perfected and glorified and in "ORDER" as in our HEADLINE.
Every purpose that opposes this order and God's will must be rejected as "hogwash" inspired by the negative tools sent to provide contrast. Lies and errors do provide contrast by means of deception and ignorance. Devils have provided "adder's poison" (interpretations and opinions) as venom to church doctrines opposing God's purpose for each FAMILY member. Death is the spring board which launches each individual "upstairs" as he experiences in spirit form a personal "PASSOVER" and EXIT DUST (EXODUS) to the "promise land" of HEAVEN ... to receive the "perfection" phase of his education, Ecclesiastes 12:7; Hebrews 12:22-24; II Corinthians 5:1-8. No "star" fails to rise on TIME in his personal birth order according to his number when the Father calls him by his heavenly name, Psalm 147:4; Isaiah 48:13; Romans 5:18; Daniel 12:1-3; Luke 8:35-36. Only devils experience everlasting contempt and shame. Because of lies men learned and passed on in each generation, Jesus was sent to "Comfort" the children regarding their suffering and fear of death.
* Concerning death, the testimony of Jesus is this: "Now that THE DEAD ARE RAISED, even Moses showed at the bush when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living for all live unto him," Luke 20:37-38. And using the example of the prodigal son who died, he said "And he arose and came to his father. But when he was a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion ... For this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found," Luke 15:20,24. Those who believe Jesus will find comfort when a man dies.
* Concerning "salvation", Jesus said in the parable of the lost sheep ... "it IS NOT THE WILL of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish," Matthew 18:14. "And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day," John 6:39. "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand," John 10:29. "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me," John 12:32. Only faith in the WORDS of Jesus will give men comfort concerning death and salvation. Otherwise if they know nothing of God's plan for the FAMILY, they may be carried away by negative errors.
* Regarding the lie that God would burn men with devils, Jesus offered a reproof in the situation where he was denied entry into a Samaritan city. "And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, even as Elias did?" And he turned and rebuked them and said, "Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of, for the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them," Luke 9:54-56. Men ignorant of God's FAMILY PLAN have been duped by the powers of darkness into believing God would destroy most of His children in the lake of fire with devils. Negative contrast consisting of lies concerning God's will and purposes for men has been a source of much grief for men in this "stage-life" experience.
* If men cannot believe THE WORD-JESUS himself, neither will they believe what the Spirit spoke through Paul concerning the Father's will which is done on earth as it is in heaven. He wrote, "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of GOD our savior who WILL HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED and come unto the knowledge of truth ... the man Jesus Christ who gave himself as a RANSOM FOR ALL to be testified in due time," I Timothy 2:3-6.
Whether men or devils believe it or not, FAMILY means everything to God. Look at this: "He it is that is incorrupt, the fullness of the ages and the Father of them. He hath given him to be seen of them that are his in order that they may recognize him that made them: and that they might not suppose that they came of themselves ... He was resting in the son, and for its salvation He will take hold of everything," Ode 7:13-17. "And call no man your father upon the earth, for one is your Father which is in Heaven, Matthew 23:9. God will not be deprived of His FAMILY. But all must be with Him where He is as it says in our HEADLINE.
Separation from God
The educational scheme to supply FAMILY members with a negative contrast-experience on earth with powers of darkness began each child's separation from God. This separation is in a technical sense only. Down here, men first learn the meaning of family in a micro and personal sense. Every "family" has a father and mother and children. We first experience family as children. Later we also become parents. This is to prepare our minds to understand the macro-dimension FAMILY, where God is the only Father, Wisdom is the only Mother, and all the countless billions of the rest of us are the "children". As children on earth we should have learned how to get along socially with our brothers and sisters. As parents we learn how to be leaders and teachers. We experience the feelings and emotions of love and protection that come with parenthood. All these stages give us initial knowledge in preparation for our learning about our true Parents and our proper behavior toward each and every individual of a huge Host of brothers and sisters.
Because of the presence of the negative kingdom supplying contrast, situations have occurred on earth which oppose our learning in its beginning stages and impede our application of proper behavior and our proper social-role toward God and our super "FAMILY". Social development in the individual earthly family is interfered with by episodes of sin, treachery, infidelity, and hatreds to destroy children's growth and socialization, to break up families, and to mix fragmented pieces of families in unions where there is little "glue". Proper education concerning the ideal roles and behavior of parents and siblings in a family sense and how to love properly are casualties of this opposing work -- this contrast devils engineer in our lives. Those buffeted by such experiences become victims and then victimize others because proper social modes of conduct and proper role model behavior is either tardy or retarded in them. This makes a transfer of right love for God and FAMILY impossible for those victimized in that manner while in this life.
"Divorce" is a poison often applied as a remedy, which very often destroys those it is intended to save. It is a tool used by devils to wreck family order and learning intended by God for men in this life. Demonic family-wrecking has generated a variety of negative contrast experiences which when remedied give us an enhanced appreciation of God's proper ways and roles.
Sin is the cancer that separates from God. On an individual basis, "When the unclean spirit goes out of a man, he seeks rest and cannot find it. He decides to go back into the "house" (human body) out of whom he came. He returns and finds it empty of devils, swept by the WORD OF GOD, and garnished with good works. Then he gets a troop of devils, wages war against that person, and if they overcome him, the last state of that man is several times worse than the first," Matthew 12:43-45. This is the beginning of multi-faceted separation which expands to the "family". A weak-link individual is now set to wreak havoc and destruction, a tool of devils to destroy peace, unity, and to divide the family in demonic conquest, Psalm of Solomon IV. Overcome by lust, a man may sin with his neighbor's wife and get caught. Fights, anger, pain, and alienation begin the decline of the family via divorce, or the funeral procession of one or both parents heading for the cemetery.
The children will be hardest hit in their learning stages in either scenario. They may suffer mental trauma, fail to thrive and achieve socially and morally, or become victims of others as they seek love and help outside the family circle. This tends to bankrupt a society, a culture or a kingdom leaving deficient leaders and teachers to be the foundation for the next succeeding generation in an ever-downward spiral. This is the purpose of the kingdom of contrast, to disrupt proper education about the IMPORTANCE and greater PURPOSE of the individual and the "family".
It is God's will that a man should leave father and mother and cleave to his wife and that His blessing of children should garnish the union. But it is the will of the devil to defeat God's purposes, that divorce should destroy the union. When you look at men, you see a collection of failures trying to lead blind men into still more failures. This is the state legislatures, the judges, lawyers, and social organizations who think they can improve upon God's rules of order. God hates putting away (divorce), Malachi 2:14-16; Matthew 19:4-9. Divorce laws which seems to be "order" are a vehicle for demonic trips into disorder and destruction of families in too many instances! By suffering these many evils in this life contrary to the facets and tendencies of real love, we rise to heaven with a basis for comparison so that we will appreciate our life of true love above more than we would have otherwise.
Because all of us experience separation from God individually, devils have succeeded in fracturing God's super-FAMILY. Before the advent of Christ, even some of the "angels" did not want to deal with us in our earthly life though they previously had lived on earth also, III Baruch, Chapters 11-17; Genesis 6:3. This tended to cause breaches between men on earth and the heavenly Hosts, so that Beauty (heaven) did not want to associate with Bands (human captives on earth), Zechariah 11:10-14. Devils making us agree with their instructions rather then with our angelic "consciences" succeeded in "fracturing" God's FAMILY when the "holy spirit" became grieved and left his "charge" on earth, Isaiah 28:14-18. We earthlings became "married" to a strange "god" although God never "divorced" us, Isaiah 50:1.
Using this parabolic allegory, we see that God also has experienced the pains of a Father separated from His children. Not only has God been "bad mouthed" as a Father by our invisible captors, but they have denied whole nations of His children the right to communicate with Him. Under "Communism", Christianity and every other religion addressing the Supreme Being, were outlawed and worship of God was illegal. So God's children were denied the right to communicate with Him. Any divorcee who is denied the right to speak to his own children should understand how this made God feel. Devils conspired to affront God and oust Him from His children under the guise of "government". Any nation failing to honor our Father and the 5th command is asking for trouble. Our blessings come from honoring God. Therefore, at this time communist nations have suffered void of blessings; they fail to thrive economically; and their people languish. Remember our letter, "Le Eagle", August 8, 1989? Where Russia, China, and the USA can be looked upon as the three heads of the eagle in a most natural application of the vision, Mikhail Gorbachev has been used to destroy the whole eastern bloc and dismantle communism by his greater vision. One "head" of the eagle is being devoured before our eyes, II Esdras 11-12. It seems to me most strange that devils waged this kind of warfare against God. If you steal a man's property, that is one thing. But if you steal his children, insult him, and then refuse to let his children speak to him -- that is quite another. Devils made a great error in incorporating this tactic as a warfare move. They angered God so that ... "thy wrath is come", Revelation 11:18. All devils contributing to incorporating anti-God laws in communism have helped cause God to send down His last born son, THE DAY OF JUDGMENT!. Your stay of execution time is very greatly shortened! You must fall, do a fire-dance, burn, and disappear!
Since all the FAMILY members were created before God rested from His works and before Adam and Eve became the first co-victims to deal with the contrast presented on earth, God has been re-uniting with us at PASS OVER time or at the point of death, Ecclesiastes 12:7. Although we cannot count the children, God created a definite number of pre-paired individuals in our FAMILY.
* Regarding PASS OVER, this is what Ezra saw and heard in a vision, "Rise and stand, and see at the feast of the Lord (which every dying prodigal son attends) the number of those who have been sealed. THOSE WHO HAVE DEPARTED FROM the shadow of THIS AGE have received glorious garments from the Lord. Take again your FULL NUMBER, O Zion, and conclude the list of your people who are clothed in white, who have fulfilled the law of the Lord. The number of your children whom you desired is full; beseech the Lord's power that your people WHO HAVE BEEN CALLED FROM THE BEGINNING may be made holy," II Esdras 2:38-41. A daily reaping or withdrawing of men via death was symbolized by the "daily sacrifice" in the priesthood established by Moses. A daily removal of men's spirits is necessary because our number is so huge.
* Regarding this number of FAMILY members, carefully heed what the angel told Ezra when he asked, "Couldst thou not have created at one time those who have been and those who are and those who will be, that thou mightest show thy judgment the sooner?" He replied and said to me, "The creation cannot make more haste than the creator, NEITHER CAN THE WORLD HOLD AT ONE TIME THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN CREATED IN IT," II Esdras 5:43-44. So the idea of a "resurrection in the end" where all those who died will rise and stand with earth's present population -- is a ridiculous lie when you think about it. It is like trying to put a gallon of water in a quart jar. It is "impossible" -- just like some church doctrines on "resurrection".
Reunion occurs on heaven-side at the FAMILY "altar" or the Archangels' altering schools where the redeemed spirits of men attend "perfection" classes under Archangels' tutelage, Hebrews 12:22-24; Revelation 6:9-11. This is called "burning" or enlightening the "sacrifices". For this daily group, those returning at death assemble at pick-up areas in the second heaven. "Place" is prepared for them as it is written, "And Pravuil told me: "all the things I have told thee we have written. Sit and write all the souls of mankind, however many of them are born, and the places prepared for them to eternity; for all souls are prepared to eternity, before the formation of this world" ... "And I swear to you, yea, yea, that there has been no man in his mother's womb, but that ALREADY BEFORE even TO EACH ONE there is a place prepared for the repose of that soul and a measure fixed how much it is intended that a man be tried in this world," Secrets of Enoch XXIII:2, XLIX:4. To that we add Romans 8:18-22 which you must look-up and read, because all death is -- is a "daily sacrifice" for FAMILY reunion because our number is exceedingly huge! Now go back and read our HEADLINE. All the Father has been doing is getting Himself (His "body") together because ... "from me you are what I am". We are little fragments of His broken body ... really!! Every man rises to his own personal FAMILY "place" and estate. He inherits God, Mother Wisdom, and the whole number of Host members as his own personal possessions. This is what re-union teaches. It is a celebration about LIFE AND LOVE for our entire FAMILY in a display of unity or ONENESS!
What Happens When We Rise
God has given His priest keys of knowledge concerning what occurs when we rise. Angels are aware of man's rising as new spirits from the earth DAILY. One analogy likens this to a reaping process. Psalm 126 expresses that the arrival of those who know what has happened is an eruption of great joy, and those assigned to gather them are also overcome with joy. Those who know nothing of God also react. From II Esdras 13:12 we glean the reaction of the others.
* Concerning the calling of the Son of God it is written, "Then many people came to him, some of whom were joyful and some were sorrowful; some of them were bound, and some were bringing others as offerings."
Since everyone rising has some degree of ignorance, an education and a re-eduction to eliminate false concepts learned on earth is required. This is called washing and burning the spiritual sacrifices. Four categories or schools are established for the "just spirits of men" in order to "perfect" them. Enoch saw this as four chambers which supposedly receive the "dead" ... which we now know to be the risen, living spirits of men, Enoch 22. In the first heaven, the lowest and closest to the earth, those who must "watch" the interaction between men on earth and the devils controlling them observe us. This is both educational for those who did not know about devils and their powers, and protective in that the "guardians" are required to help men and wage warfare as "consciences" and leaders of men on earth. This process is called "the moon and stars ruling the night" (devils on earth), Genesis 1:16. This is where Wisdom and her daughters (the Virgins of heaven) feed men below, Proverbs 8:1-5, 9:1-6. So all is not joy and celebration. Joy occurs, but many get "put to work" when they learn of FAMILY! Glorification as an angel does not exempt the neophytes from association with us and delving into the affairs of men. Because God teaches us to love ALL as "FAMILY" including all men on earth regardless of their state of being concerning sin -- everyone "upstairs" and downstairs (in the earth) are likened to the parts of a "body". We all need one another, and we are all tied to one another. What affects those below reverberates on those above. GOD TEACHES ONENESS in every sense of the word. Those above when "perfect" will care for all His children as He does regardless of their life-state and role on earth and their interaction with devils. This is God's analogy of FAMILY UNITY, I Corinthians 12:12-25. Those who are "perfect" LOVE to the utmost. This is love and care to the utmost: Matthew 5:44-48, 22:2-10; Luke 7:36-49, 15:20-24. True LOVE gave His life that ALL may live. So ALL DO AND WILL LIVE!
FAMILY is what God lives for. FAMILY is what gives God joy. FAMILY is the "whole" of God's LOVE. And FAMILY is what He is working with great care to perfect. We have an exceedingly huge number of FAMILY members. Devils have lied to us through ministers in the churches and to our own minds. GOD WILL LOSE NOTHING, John 6:39, 10:28,29. ALL MEN ARE IN HIS HAND. IT IS NOT GOD'S WILL FOR ONE SHEEP (FAMILY" member) TO PERISH. To all human beings, whether you are "prodigal" or not ... prepare to meet YOUR FATHER in FAMILY REUNION. We cannot be at ONE without ALL. Now ... go back, read, and meditate on that HEADLINE. Now laugh, for joy is yours! Ode 23:1-5, 9:1-5.
