Why Are We Living In This World?
 
The most asked question, Why are we living in this world?
 
2 Peter 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
 
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
  • The first earth age
  • Jeremiah 4:22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.
    23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.
    24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
    25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.
    26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce anger.
    27 For thus hath the Lord said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.
    28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.
    29 The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein.
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
  • The Lord Day = 1,000 years
  • 1000 years means Millennium
  • 1000 years =  Millennium
  • Revelation 20 The Millennium
1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
  • It's God wisdom, that helps us understand the three world ages
  • He'll touches you, eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us
The mystery that Paul talks about in Romans, all people will have an opportunity to love God through Christ, so we may return to that place of peace and beauty that we were in, before Satan disrupted everything by his sin of rebellion.
 
Ezekiel 28 In the first world age; Satan rebelled against God his pride was his down fall. He stopped loving God and he wanted to be God himself. There was a battle in the first earth age and one third of God's children were deceived by Satan and stood with Satan against God.
 
The elect are those who took a firm stand against Satan in the first world age that was.
 
Then, of course, the rest of God's children that remained, what of them? But some took the path of least resistance, doing nothing, not wanting to get involved in controversy.
 
Now God does not care to have forced love, which is worthless, so there were two choices open to Him in regard to the third that followed Satan. He could kill His children, which would be a vicious thing, or He could block these things from their mind, let them be born of woman here on earth, and let them voluntarily make their own choice to follow Him or Satan.
 
God  is a loving and merciful God, and these were His children, created by Him. Being an all powerful God, He could not forced their love, but He needs to know if you love Him. Love must come from the heart, given as a free will gift, to have value. Forced love is worthless. The world that is now, as we know it, is His plan for salvation.
 
God needs to know, do you love Him, or you going to follow Satan, this is what God is asking His children. This is why we are in the second world age now, as we know it.
 
1st earth age, God's elect that stood with God against Satan
 
The elect are expected to seek out God's word, His knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding.
 
The elect are those who took a firm stand against Satan in the first world age that was. In the last days there will be 7,000 out of that remnant that the Father chose as His elect to stand against Satan again. They will prove their right of being God's elect by standing against Satan again, being delivered up and being a witness for Christ's sake.
 
In the last days the elect are going to help God directly in His work. What a glorious time is ahead. His goodness will let the elect (seven thousand that stood against Satan without wavering), being the first fruits, that would suffer for Him in the near future and bring this age into "the millennium" which is the Lord's day. Roman 11) (Ephesians 1)
 
Roman 11, In the first earth age, there was a remnant that stood with God against Satan in the first earth age. In the last days there will be 7,000 out of that remnant that the Father chose as His elect to stand against Satan again in the last days. Satan will be cast out of heaven and will deceive the whole world, if possible the very elect. The elect are those who took a firm stand against Satan in the first world age that was.
 
They will prove their right of being God's elect by standing against Satan again, being delivered up and being a witness for Christ's sake.
 
The elect have the Key of David, that opens doors that no man can shut, it seals the truth in the minds of those with a destiny to serve the Lord.
 
The elect are made up of a remnant of people that God has set aside to do His work at the end of this earth age. There has always been a remnant to do His work. Sometimes a group and sometimes just one or two.
 
 In the last days there will be 7,000 out of that remnant that the Father chose as His elect to stand against Satan again in the last days. (Roman 11) (Ephesians 1)
 
1st earth age, some took the path of least resistance, doing nothing
 
Then, of course, the rest of God's children that remained, what of them? But some took the path of least resistance, doing nothing, not wanting to get involved in controversy.
 
Romans 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
  • Paul reveals his own lineage in this verse.
  • He says in many other places that he is a Roman, because he was a Roman citizen, but this is his genealogy, his specific seed line.
  • He was an Israelite of the tribe of Benjamin.
2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,

3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
  • Now Elijah had said this in 1 Kings, the 19th chapter.
  • Remember the ten tribes had left Israel at this time, and having left the old temple, they had all turned to idolatry.
  • Now think of our people today.
  • Who are the ten tribes worshipping today?
  • We see the same thing.
  • They don't know whom they're worshipping.
  • Most people, do not know who they are.
  • They're going to worship a false christ.
  • They believing the Kenites people are the true sons of Israel, and we could say much the same thing Elijah said; but Elijah forgot the divine promise to the seed.
  • We're speaking specifically of Israel here.
  • Verse 4 gives God's answer.
Romans 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
  • Ten tribes are lost here and they did not come to the point that they should have, but the election hath obtained it.
  • The remnant hath attained the truth and not confused Christ with the false christ.
  • In no way can they be deceived or confusion; they have the truth.
  • But the rest were blinded, which in the Greek means their hearts were hardened to the truth
8 According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear; unto this day.
  • God put them in this slumber or stupor.
  • There is no such word as ''slumber'' in Greek language, a stupor, or ''eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear''.
  • The purpose of this stupor is that the Gentiles would have an opportunity to accept Christ and could come into their own kingdom, as is recorded in the 21st chapter of Revelation.
9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompence unto them:
  • They think they're doing good for God, and David says, let this be a snare to them.
  • Now think of today.
  • If people are going to church all in good faith, but they are being taught a Kenites messiah and that God's chosen people are Kenites, then their very Christian religion becomes a stumbling block to them.
  • David predicted this many, many years ago, and we see today many of Israel being deceived.
10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back always.
  • Let them carry a heavy load.
  • Yes, beloved, they do carry a heavy load when they are taught hell and damnation instead of His peace and His love.
  • Within this deception, they are praying to the wrong father.
11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.
  • If the children of Israel had not stumbled and had lived perfectly by the law, then Christ would not have had to come, and the only promise from God was to the Israelites.
  • There was no promise to others, but you see they did not live perfectly and Christ came , so then it was possible for the others to have salvation.
  • This came about through Christ.
12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fullness?
  • In other words, if Israel's stumbling and deception brings riches to the world, if their loss brings riches to the Gentiles; what a great thing Israel becomes by being a blessing to the whole world.
  • And of course, we remember the covenant with Abraham that he would be the father of many nations.
  • He would even be a blessing to the ethnos, and we know this has come to pass through Christ.
Roman 11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.
  • Or, Israel was blinded and erred so the Gentiles could in to eternal life, but as to the elect of Israel, they are beloved.
  • Remember what He said in Revelation..touch not mine elect.
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
  • God never goes back on His word, and He has said, I will keep a remnant reserved to myself.
  • Roman 11:4 This remnant is the 7,000 who will not bow a knee to Baal.
Jeremiah 35, we found that God did not care for lukewarm love or sloppy obedience. God needs to know, if His children will love Him or Satan.
 
Roman 11, These are blinded today. Jeremiah 35, we found that God did not care for lukewarm love or sloppy obedience. God needs to know, if His children will love Him or Satan.
 
Romans 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not high minded, but fear:
  • The Israelites were broken off because of lack of faith, and you better not be uppity, but revere and love God.
  • Don't let your faith weaken, but remain humble and reverent.
Satan shall not be forgiven, but his rebellion posed two choices that God might use for correction.
 
1st earth age, The battle between God and Satan 1/3 of God's children followed Satan
 
1/3 that follow Satan, Satan wanted to take God's place, deceiving 1/3 of God's children.
 
Revelation 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
  • What does this word drew and tail mean?
  • Drew # 4951 Greek word - NT:138; to trail
  • Tail is from Trail NT:138 Greek; choose. NT:138; to make a choice:
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

(45) And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. First Murderer was Cain.
 
1/3 of the Stars in Heaven = Job 38:7 sons of God
 
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
 
1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
 
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
 
Matthew 24, The last generation, May 14, 1948.. The good (the tribe of Judah) and bad  (Satan's children) setup, in Israel.
 
The tribe of Judah Revelation 17, 6th kingdom was setup in the nation Israel, The tribe of Judah doesn't  claim to be of the twelve tribes of Israel.
 
Revelation 7 there are twelve tribes of Israel, with Joseph getting a double blessing making 13 tribes.

God has told us many times, do not believe what any man may teach you unless you first check them out directly from God's Word which is unchangeable.
 
Exactly 2520 years from the exile of Benjamin, Iceland became an independent nation.
 
•  The first tribe to be conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh, in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 years later America became a nation on July 4, 1776.

(Leviticus. 26:28-46) God warned Israel that if they persisted in continually breaking His Laws, not only would curses come upon them.

He would punish them for seven times, (a time being 360 years, seven times would be 2520 years) and would banish them from the land of Palestine and scatter them among the heathens (like lost sheep)
