THE KINGDOM AND THE LAKE OF FIRE
By Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 4-1961
I would like to talk to you for a little while about this subject. The Kingdom and the Lake of Fire. Probably there is nothing more important for you to know than what the Everlasting Gospel consists of. To know that when we talk about the Everlasting Gospel that we can truly understand that it is Peace on Earth Good Will to men. And that within this Eternal Gospel the Angel could thus say:..I am bringing glad tidings of Great Joy which will be good news to all people.
There are a great many people who do not know how they can fit that into the theology by which they challenge the Gospel of the Kingdom with. Those who preach the Gospel of the Kingdom know that this Gospel is the transference of God's Kingdom from heaven to earth with a spiritual seed..with the very sons of Glory..with the very purposes He has of establishing a Kingdom in the earth forever. And that His Grace reaches out to the ends of the earth, and to people of every race, and every kind. That it has been His purpose to bring them all into proper relationship to Himself, to teach them the errors of their way, and to give them the capacity to think correctly. And the Administration of Righteousness in the earth was to be conducted by the children of His Kingdom. His children, who had a spiritual capacity to think His thoughts, the offspring of THE MOST HIGH, having been begotten in the spirit..in the beginning.
There is no question of the fact that a great number of these truths are not taught theologically in a great number of our denominations..because they do not know them. A great number of the teachings which they do think they know, have come from a long continuity of superstitions. They have been extracted from doctrines, changed and made in conformity with theological institutions which wish to control, and direct the conduct of their people, their attendance, and their acceptance of their authority, and to utilize fear, to help to manipulate this.
Altho I can tell you that generations of Clergy under these institutions have fallen into this category, still they are not aware that the thing they use to try to make men behave, is not the way in which God intended to make men behave, and conform to His image. And thus in this they with honesty carry forward a whole series of doctrine, which are nothing in comparison with the truth. And which do not show the Great nature of your God and our Father.
It is very hard to introduce the Gospel which is GOOD News to all people if we cited that a great part of the people of earth, some hundreds of millions of them that have lived inside of Adam's time, and shall live in the House of the Kingdom, and those who lived upon the earth many, even before the time of Adam..just because they do not know the proper God and do not know His teaching, because their minds have been carried into captivity by evil and fallen angels...that they are going to be destined, and have been ordained by the very processes of the things they did not know, and the experience thru which they pass..to eternal torture, and eternal torment. And the only solution to this would be their acceptance of the things we believe. But things which would be impossible for those people to have even heard long before this condition, or these periods of time came into existence. We have been told that the very nature of our God requires that if people do not accept His offer, and these opportunities to say these magic words, and given an acceptance of these great truths that then it must to satisfy His judgments..be that they must thru out all ages, pass into Eternal torment.
This my friends: is the doctrine that is taught in its many phases by denominations everywhere. Even some who do not accept HIM as the Deity, The Christ. But think of Him as basically a great philosopher instead of the Eternal God that HE was..even they still hold a certain pattern of torture reaching out into the tomorrow, for those who do not measure to the Ecclesiastic standards, which they themselves believe in. What I want you to know is that the Gospel of the Kingdom is the greatest news the world ever heard. It is an Everlasting Gospel and therefore it cannot brook Ancient errors, or modern ones as well. This is because you have passages in your King James Version which in their translation situation seems at times to support these doctrines, but this is no excuse for carrying forward these doctrines which contain error, when there is a passway to understand what should have been said. More than that, if you were to read the content of the King James Version, and to discover the great promises, and the mighty words, and the nuggets of truth that are hidden therein, you would discover that it would make impossible the acceptance of error, that has been passed down from generation to generation.
If you today were to claim any spiritual acquaintance with the nature of your God by the activation of His Spirit, or you were stirred or stimulated by His Holy Spirit, it is impossible that in your inner consciousness that you can pour God into such spiritual revelation, to this format that some men are trying to pour Him into. He won't fit that mould, for you are not going to change God. The great thing the world and the Universe needs in their nature is to be changed like unto Him.
Sometimes the great forces which are at play, greater than some mens abilities, or possibly their attention to evaluate do not make the impact that they should. The great powers which move across the earth, and seem to effect so much the durabilities of cities and civilization, or the impact which destroys them..are measured by great forces of Energy. This energy released by the very suddenness of the fury by which it moves. The earthquakes, the fire, the floods, the movements of air and wind, thus it is elementally the Ancients referred to as the 4 elements of the pattern of force, of air, of fire, of water, of earth. And when one recognizes the vastness of the Universe..as staggering as it is, still it is held together by the great organization of every units, out of the very personality, and the Deity and Mind of HE who holds all things together. When one recognizes the tremendous energy released into such a molecular mass, that of all substances in the Universe which are visible, are made out of it, then one recognizes that the Will and the Mind, and the bookkeeping element of the atom energies out of the common spirit of the Eternal.
When one sees those forces that are at work in creation, and out of the vastness of time, there is one thing about this Universe..it is constantly growing, expanding, changing, according to the Will of HIM who makes all things operate according to His own council. This is not a static situation, it is an expanding, continually growing, continually developing Universe. And it has always been this way, and always will be this way. My ...the forces that are released in just one explosion of the nebula. They are not forces of hate, they are not forces of destruction. They are forces of new creation, and when they have finally reached their stability for the temporary cycles of their existence, even tho this might seem like eternity to you, they will meet the form that the Father planned.
When we talk about the forces which are in earth, we are talking about human forces, like emotions. Like the very forces of the elements which you place inside an individual who has sensitivity to feel, and even carries the whole impact of the energy and vibrations of the Universe around them, and the powers and forces which moves in their midst, are the powers and forces of organized thought. When you have great masses of people in the earth who think in an area diametrically opposed to truth, then you have an explosive function already at work.
Among the peoples of earth there is an explosive force among all the non-white races of today. And the very race of which you are a part..you the children of heaven transferred to earth, by spirit, into bodies of the Adamic race...are to multiply and increase as God has ordained. To bring in 'Thy kingdom come', for which you pray. Inside of you is a force, a dynamic force. It is a force of knowledge and wisdom and ideas which flows out of the mind of the Eternal. It has within it creative vision, knowledge, power and understanding. And that force is the force of creation, and has given us a sense of Divine Law. And that spirit within you was begotten of the Father, who is the very LAW, Himself. And inside of your race is the very essence of all things, light and flesh. We do not say that all conduct is this way, just that it ought to be. But there is a tremendous factor in the world today, for God Almighty has poured your race into the earth as a stream of light, to build and to establish His Kingdom according as to how He Willed.
The powers of darkness had been taken over by Lucifer himself, who in the hours of his rebellion went out to try to sweep the whole Universe under his control. And had so effected the peoples of earth and those peoples brought in by the changes Lucifer sought to make, until in their muddled captivity, their minds have worshipped superstition, and darkness, and witch-doctors, and devil gods. And they have been directed with animosity against you, and everything which represents light. If you do not think that is true then look around today, and you will find that all these explosive elements of revolution that sweeps the world is an attempt to harness all this force, for the extermination of your race or the subordination of your race to slavery..that is the force at work. It is a flow of ideas, one negative and the other positive that has the world today caught in a gigantic struggle. And out of that struggle will come the impact of what has been going on in the world, in this sum of 7400 years out of millions of years of life on earth, and you are right now reaching a climactic point where out of this gigantic struggle effecting the world today is going to come the Administration of Divine Law, and the Kingdom of God. And the world is going to end up under the leadership of the white race, which the forces of darkness think they are going to destroy. So it shows you that out of the great cataclysm which is at the head of it... the great earthquake of men and people is a pattern of Divine purpose. There might be some who would say even tho prophecy had declared it, that this is cruel, this is hard. My friends...this is a molder of substance, and of wills. It is not merely as hard as to permit evil to continue, with its world cycle of destruction, and its tyranny. When one understands the law of life, you will understand that the consciousness exists in the plane of spirit, and in the soul consciousness of individuals. Their residence in a physical body is essential for them to have any impact upon the earth. It is far more important that some of these bodies be destroyed, that the powers of evil be removed from the earth, and that the Kingdom of God come into fullness. That is not cruelty, that is just a better destiny. This is just a better destiny than they would carve for themselves. When we talk abut the Kingdom of God we find that the Kingdom of God has been a continuing program of righteousness, for the earth under Divine Law. The Bible tells the story of your race, and how the violations of Divine Law occurred, and because of this death came upon this race. I think it is important that you understand the law of death. When organic creations are in perfect harmony with their creator, and when the organic balance is chemically maintained, and there is no principal violation of Divine Law, there is no death in the higher orders. When the spirit is enveloped in Shekinah Light of Divine Presence there is no death. There is no aging of tissue, there is perfect glandular balance. When your race in their pattern violated Divine Law, then death came upon your race. And yet in the plan of the MOST HIGH GOD, from before the foundation of the world, HE told you that He Himself would take on a body like you had..be born out of your race ..and then redeem you and give back to your race everything that you had ever lost, and give you everything necessary to finish the task. The wages of sin was death, and violation of Law creates an explosion whether it is chemical law, or nuclear law. Disintegration and death passed upon your race, this was the price of transgression...the wages of sin was death. Someone said: I wish they would take the word sin out of our vocabulary. I wish we could take sin out of the world. SIN..is simply this: a violation of Divine Law. And all have violated Divine Law, and come short of the Glory of God. If that wasn't true, then if one of you hadn't violated Divine Law, you would be shining so bright that all of us in here would fall flat on our faces...remember that.
Now; I am going to tell you that before you have finished your Destiny, you will shine with such Glory, and you will be as stimulative even in the concept of your ideas, as the Father who begat you. But within such a process the wages of sin are death...violation of Divine Law. Now;...what happens to someone who dies? They go to hell. Oh, you say, what do you mean by that? Well, I mean that the word hell in the Old Testament, except I believe in only 2 separate places, is the word Sheol, and it means the Grave. And about 75% of the quotations used in the pulpits today to send someone to hell is the word Sheol, and should have been translated..the grave, because that is pure and simple what it means. Now you know there is one Book that belongs in every Christian home..I have a multitude of books that do the same thing, but one would do it just as well and that book is 'Strongs Exhaustive Concordance.' Every word in the Bible is in it, and when you come in the Bible to where that word..hell..is used, then you look it up and discover that there is a little number in the reference column of the concordance, and it may not be such a little number, for it does run up into the thousands, but that number runs you over into the Lexicon, whether in the Old Testament in the Hebrew, or the New Testament in the Greek. And you see what the word hell is translated from. When you look into the Old Testament, every place the word hell is used except in two places, it was...grave. So we can't found this fantastic torture doctrine that some people have accumulated in their theology from..The Grave. Because every body had been going in, and will continue to go in, until Light swallows up death.
Now: in the New Testament we again have the use of certain words:... Hades is a word transferred into the Greek, and generally speaking it was just transferred from the old mythology of the Greeks for a description of the Netherworld. The place where the spirits of the Beast system and the Luciferian house dwell.
It was also used to show that the spirits of the Adamic race..captured by Lucifer, were held captive until the resurrection of the Christ set you free. There wasn't any fire spot where they tortured you with fire, or on sticks of flame. And since the resurrection of the Christ there is no spot within the heart of the earth where they hold the white man..the children of God. There has at no time been a suggestion inside of the theology of the early Christian Church that anybody was going to be tortured in any fiery perdition.
There was talk by the Prophets of the Old Testament, and by those of the New, that the Kingdom of God which was made up of men, and of nations was going to finally be victorious over evil. And that the spiritual transitions and even with the intervention of God Himself, with outpouring of waves of energy out of His own nature called the Holy Ghost, or Holy Spirit was to come. He was to cleanse, and develop His own children back to their Celestial likeness, until they conformed to His own Image, and ruled the world with the final righteousness that He has ordained.
But you were told that there were hells in all but two of these instances ..and they were only the grave. In one of these instances it was Gehenna, and that was the city dump outside of Jerusalem, where all the refuse was thrown. It was burned, but it wasn't so hot for it never burned up all the worms, as they always had something to work on. It was never intended to convey the idea that you were going to be put on a fire block, and the fire would work over you, but you just wouldn't be consumed. Any time you try to make God as barbarious as that...with even superstition, then you need a whole new revelation concerning HIS Nature.
Do you know that sometimes people for years and years have just accepted error and thought it was truth, and they thought that was why they behaved ...from fear. But as a Christian why he behaves himself, and he will say:.. ..I just do it because that is how I feel. I do it because I think that is what God wants me to do, and I want Him to love me. You don't really find any Christians doing anything just because they are afraid they will be burned up by HIM. God out and look at these Christian people, they aren't doing things, or not doing things because of this doctrine, that they think they will be burned up. They are just a little disturbed because they are about to die, and they don't know what is ahead. If you get anyone to behave themselves today, and conform to Divine standards it is because you stimulate them with the spirit of God, with the response to the truth, that has made their natures change. You don't change the nature of an individual by giving him a torture chamber GOD.
There is a great difference between torment and torture. Someone said:..it tells me in My Bible that there is a Lake of Fire. That is what I have been telling you, so get your Bible and go back to your concordance, and you will find something which will surprise you. Look it up, and you will find that the translation..Lake of Fire, is 'Cloud of Glory'...'Shekinah Glory'..the essence of the Light wave length and vibrations of God's own Holy Nature. Thus we find in Revelation 14, in the 20 and 21st chapters that this great Shekinah Glory. Someone said:..but why these translations? I want you to know that God has a great plan and we mentioned it before..look in the 45th chapter of Isaiah verse 17., Know this..'All Israel shall be saved in YAHWEH with an everlasting salvation, ye shall not be ashamed, nor confounded world without end.' Verse 18:..'Thus saith YAHWEH that created the heavens and formed the earth: he hath established it, he didn't create it in vain, he formed it to be inhabited; and then said: 'I am YAHWEH: and there is none else.' In otherwords He said:..this is my business, and I will do it my own way. Then you come over to the 46th chapter of Isaiah and He says:..verse 9 'Remember the former things of old, for I am YAHWEH, and there is none else: I am YAHWEH AND THERE IS NONE LIKE ME.
Verse 10:..'I have declared the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not done, saying:..MY COUNSEL shall stand; and I will do all my pleasure.'
Now:..hear this:...'I will do all my pleasure.'
Could you love a God who would put a hundred million people in Eternal torture to satisfy a fact that they hadn't repeated a sentence or two, or didn't know or understand? Could you love such a monster? YAHWEH isn't like that..if He was like that you would all be like that, the most sadistic devils...individuals the world has ever known, because you are His offsprings.
Now Listen:..'Look unto me and be ye saved all the ends of the earth, for I AM YAHWEH, THERE IS NONE ELSE.'
Look unto me and be ye saved all the ends of the earth. Why do you think God put His Kingdom into the earth? He put His Kingdom here to bring light to the ends of the earth, to rule over the earth with righteousness, to save all the ends of the earth. Alright:..Now, is He going to do it? He says:..'I am going to do all my pleasure as well.' time isn't any problem with HIM. He said:..'I swore by myself', He didn't take you into this, He didn't make you take the oath, for He said,..'I swore by myself'. 'My word has gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return unto ME void. Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall swear.' Then in the last of that chapter talking about your race it says:..'In YAHWEH shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall Glory.' Isaiah 45:24 Now;..God knowing the situations that you will pass thru, knowing the number of the enemy, the environment, the pouring out of His Grace then says: I am going to justify everything you did, and make one atonement for you...forgive you, and then I am going to pour out my light and life for you, and return you to your God-like nature. That is what He said. Someone said:..But that is in the Old Testament. Well if you can get Grace and Salvation out of the Old Testament, you surely don't have to worry about the New.
You say:..how can I know that is what it is talking about? Well, if you have a Strongs Concordance then go to page 352 in the heart of the center column and start looking up...LAKE OF FIRE. You will discover that Lake of Fire, and fire and brimstone as it is used in the translation, and this is a concordance for the King James Version,...so what does it say? It says that the same words which are translated Lake of Fire, and fire and Brimstone, are the same word used in Matthew in the 3rd chapter and the 11th verse, where it says:...'HE who cometh after me shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with FIRE.' this Holy Ghost Fire, is the same word translated as Lake of Fire, and fire and brimstone in the Book of Revelations. Now I want to take you over into the Book of Luke in the 3rd chapter and the 16th verse. I want to prove to you that there wasn't just an error in that one Book. Luke says:..Quoting John the Baptist....... 'I indeed baptize you with water, but one mightier than I cometh, the latch of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire.' These words Holy Ghost and Fire are the very same words translated...Lake of Fire and Fire and brimstone. I wouldn't tell you where to find it, and give you the exact numbers if I didn't know what I was talking about, it would be very foolish, for you could all go down and get the concordance and look it up if you wanted to. Now:...if there was ever a Mighty Spiritual power that ever descended upon the children of God's Kingdom it was after the revelation of The Christ...it was the great spiritual flow of illumination and courage which moved upon the children of God..because they were His children, and the essence of His Spirit and it descended upon them after His Atonement. this Atonement by HIM put them in Oneness with HIM. Atonement is..at Oneness with God. There is nothing against you anymore, no judgment, nothing to keep the power off you, and those who are ready to receive it only have to look for it, to take it.
That spiritual power descended at Pentecost and transformed the courage of Peter, until he stood before the enemy of Jesus The Christ, and before he was afraid, to even admit he knew HIM. It so catalyzed the energy of those early Apostles and disciples until all Christendom was moved by it, and the Great and Mighty Christian Church was founded, and the institution of spiritual life within Christendom was swept over the entire western world.
Now: we have mentioned this to you, and it is essential that you understand this. The Book of Romans continues to carry this out. The wages of sin is death...and therefore by one man Adam, by his violation of law brought this on the race, for he did not maintain at the original point, the law of no contact with the race of evil. So by one man..Adam entered into transgression, and so came death, and by this violation of this law then death passed to all men of Adams race, and now all men were under the law of sin and death. And thus as by that one man came death so by one man ..Jesus the Christ..came Life.
We are told in the Book of Corinthians as well that by a second man:.. The Incarnate Christ..life is come. 'For in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.' I Corinthians 15:22
Now: in this instance you will discover that in the Scriptures as judgments are taught that the word..HELL..or SHEOL..is brought out, which is the grave in the Old Testament and is also descriptive of death in the New Testament except for its description of the Netherworld where the consciousness of men were held captive until Christ's Resurrection. You will find also that the Lake of Fire is explained as Shekinah Glory and we will show you how it is going to work. And then you have some other words which need explanation..you have Second death. And there are people who say:..Oh, that is the second, the final one. To the people who are disobedient, and to the races which are not of the Kingdom, and all the pagans who by the billions have died, they are dead. And at the resurrection...well they don't take place in the first one, but at the second resurrection they are raised, and they stand before the court of THE MOST HIGH GOD and The Christ sits on the that throne and He judges them, and anyone whose name is not written in the Lambs Book of Life..well look out!
No my friends:..this Book of Life is for your race, and your name was written there before you came into the world. All not found in that Book are to be thrown into that Lake of Fire, and that is the second death??? Do you know what it tells me here in this Book of Revelation? It tells me that all those thrown into the Lake of Fire which is the second death, are then going to be tortured in the...Presence of The Eternal God and all His Saints forever??? My what a time we will have doing that..Is that how you want to spend Eternity? Throw them into the Lake of Fire and they will be tortured in the presence of the Eternal God and His believing offspring forever???
You say..alright then what does it mean? In the first place I think there are some things you should know about this second death. The individual who comes into the world dies and is dead, and then he becomes dead to sin... thru Christ, and when a man becomes dead to error..thru Christ, as the spirit of God's consciousness takes over his intellect, he has gone thru a second death, and has died to transgression, for he now has a sense of what is good and will be perfected by it. And you and I in these very moments, in the trials and situations thru which we are being passed, are being chastised, but purified and refined. Thus we don't have to go thru the second death that is described in the Book of Revelations.
Let me show you something here also in the Book of Revelation. We are told in Revelation..'He that overcometh', in otherwords, he that hath been chastened, and he that is developed, he that the spirit has brought to fruitition, doesn't go thru any second death. In fact none of those whose names were written in the Lamb's Book of Life, before the foundation of the world, will partake of the second death.
Now: the first death is just death, that is all. And the second death is just death, that is all. But it is not death to the existence of the spirit which never dies at any time, nor death to the soul consciousness. But in this instance it is death to transgression.
You say:..How does it work? There is nothing which purifies your nature and adjusts you to the Will and Mind of God like the constant moving action and function of His Holy Spirit in you. It is a refining process, it goes on in your thoughts, and in your consciousness. It has so adjusted you that the whole course of error, whether it is World Communism, whether it has penetrated your schools, or whether it is against God or against His Name. Whether it is in your churches and denies His Deity...something rises up in you, and you are already purified...on that point.
If there is anything which still needs purifying as far as the children of God are concerned, it is little things of their nature where natural patterns of selfishness still effect them. But the fact remains that their consciousness gives a sense of proof that their spirit is already perfect. Their mind is getting adjusted, and God is doing a chastising, cleansing work on you.
Do you know what God says He is doing? He said:..I am subduing you unto Myself. Now that is what is called...the enveloping work of God's Holy Spirit. You have an aura, a wave length of life, and it stimulates that ego consciousness in you, and He brings that light to flow more completely thru you. If fills your nature, and becomes the burning pattern of your life. But there are people in this world who were not begotten by God's Spirit when they came into this world. They were creations which were sent to save, and the only thing which will adjust them must come from without, not from within. And it must effect the consciousness of their being, and it will be the refining and purifying of God's Holy Spirit that does the job. The Apostle Paul said that you were saved with fire...and you say but what did he mean by that? If all our works are burned up we would still be saved by fire. The Apostle Paul is talking about the fact that the Holy Spirit in you burns out the dross and the error. And if everything you thought was right turns out to be wrong...but you still know who the Father is, and still have a desire to know that which is right because of who you are, thus you are still saved by the fire. The thing that saves you is the taking away of all error. Salvation is saving you from your sins, not to be saved...from God.
People are worrying about being saved from some torment somewhere in the future, but my friends...the thing for them to realize is that God wants to save you from error. He wants you to conform to Divine Law, He wants you to do what is right. He wants His Universe balanced. He is going to bring the earth back into balance and everyone is going to be balanced in it as well. I want to show you something:...when you throw them all into the enveloping situation which is developing in the earth, it is going to purify them. It may take sometime but it is going to do it. God never punishes unless it has an effect as to produce something. Chastisement and punishment is for correction, not for revenge. Even in your own nature it is not your nature to hold on to revenge. You get into a big war, and you destroy and defeat, and even wreck terrible destruction on whole cities of your enemy. And then you turn around, and bind, and patch them up, and try to put them back in business with better ships, better material than even you have. And even give them one of your best statement to rule over them while you took second best. It is not your nature to keep on destroying, for you have Grace in you. But do you think you are better than God? Let me tell you something, if you think you are better than God then you better go out and convert HIM. You couldn't begin to measure up to the vastness of His Nature, until that day when you are enveloped with the completion of HIS Spirit. But the thing which purges out the errors in mens hearts, and in mens minds is the work of His Spirit. And the Apostle Paul said our ideas go on alone to sacrifice, and our concepts have to be put aside for truth. Then we discover that we throw out superstitions, and throw off bondage, and we walk in to the light. And if all the things we thought were important are instead burned up, still we are saved by fire. The Shekinah Glory.
Lots of people have built on a good solid foundation, and there are lots of things which they don't have to surrender, because they just, by inheritance knew that THE FATHER was like this anyhow. When God gets thru, there are certain things which will be done. He said that He is going to reconcile the whole world unto Himself. He said: I am not willing that any shall perish, but I have ordained that all shall have Eternal Life. He said back in the 45th and 46th chapters of Isaiah:...'I do all the pleasure of my Will.' I am willing that all flesh be saved, from the ends of the earth ...All Israel shall be saved. Then in the New Testament in the Book of Romans He says:..'All Israel shall be saved as it is written.' Now; I want to take you into the second chapter of I John as he said: ..He the Eternal YAHWEH, now as the man Christ Jesus the righteous, he was the propitiation for our sins. He settled all necessary accounts in all the pattern of legality, he was the propiation (the atonement) for all our sins, and not for our sins only..not only for we the white race, the children of the MOST HIGH GOD, but also for the sins of the whole world. Hear this now:...'He was the propiation for our sins, and not only for our sins but for the whole world.' Do you think He did all that for nothing? Do you think he can't have His way? He can hold all the Universe together...trillions of sidereal systems. He can pour out His Spirit, and He can call His sheep by name. The Psalmist said:..where can i go that you couldn't find me? I can go the highest mountains, I can drown and go to the depth of the sea, I can be in any situation or any condition, but there is no place I can go that you can't find me. I can go into Sheol, into the grave, and my spirit into the nethermost realms, but you could still find me. Do you think that anyone can deny HIM? I want you for one moment to think about these words of Peter:...I want you to know that this Gospel is preached, and the declaration of it was being proclaimed, and HE, His own self bare our transgressions in His own body, that we now being dead to sin, would live unto righteousness, and by HIS stripes we are healed, and thus by this process He is consciously bringing upon you death which is the second death unto transgression. The first death being under transgression. One is death under sin, the other is death to sin. That is why you never have to participate in any final situation, where you are thrown into any condition which will torment you..until you accept.
I what you to know that the Apostle Paul tells us as to what God is doing and it is shown over here in the writings of I Timothy and in the second chapter. 'That this Eternal YAHWEH-YAHSHUA our Savior is going to have all men to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth.'..Do you believe that? Then come with me over to the 4th., chapter of I Timothy and the 10th verse., 'Therefore we are trusting in a living God who is the Savior of all men.'
Then over in the Book of Colossians I find these words by HE who created all things, and is eventually going to bring all things into reconciliation with Himself. He said, all things were made by HIM and for HIM. He has absolute power. He can pour all the energy of His Spirit to bring His results into being, don't you think He is going to finish it? I turn over here into the Book of Philippians 3:24...He not only has changed us inside our body which can know death, but as also promised to change it, to fashion it like unto His own glorious body, enveloped by His Spirit, at the time of His resurrection. Accordingly to the working where by He is able to subdue all things unto Himself.
Here is a declaration that God is going to subdue all things unto Himself, this means that He is going to pressure them with the Spirit, and torment them with the Spirit, and envelope them with its glory, until He has subdued their rebellious spirits, until they all get down on the knees and say:...'HE is the Eternal YAHWEH.'
Lets take a look at this Book of Philippians again, for in it I discover the declaration concerning this purpose. This is the triumphant Gospel, the Everlasting Gospel, so lets think about it:...'That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow of things in heaven, and things in the earth, and things under the earth:..2:10. 'And every tongue is going to confess that Jesus The Christ is the Eternal YAHWEH, to the Eternal Glory of YAHWEH forever.'
Now listen:...'At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow', Where? In the earth, and in the nether region which is in the area where spirits of fallen Angels, angelic beings, superstitious Asiatic spirits dwell waiting for redemption.
Someone said:..You will never redeem the devil. Maybe you don't have a God big enough for that, but I do. I have a God big enough to get an Archangel back. You say what do I mean by that? The day is going to come when Lucifer is going to worship at your feet. The day is going to come when the whole synagogue of Satan, these unassimilatable people that are the offsprings of violations of Ancient Divine Law, from the fallen Angelic hosts. Who today war against your civilization, and your society, and who could be swept from the earth with the blessings of God. The day is going to come when everyone of them are going to be on their knees saying:... you are the children of God, and God has loved you, and we were a fraud, and a lie, but we acknowledge now...the spirit from which all life comes. He is the Father and we will obey. Yes the synagogue of Satan is going to worship at your feet.
I can take you over to the 5th., chapter of Revelation and I am talking to you whom God has made kings and priests to reign on earth, and you are going to hear the voices, and all the Angels, and you will see all the numbers of those around that throne...Ten thousand times ten thousand, times thousands and thousands. You start to multiply that and you are up into the hundreds of millions before you know it. Listen to what it says: ..'Worthy is the Lamb, to receive all the power, and all the riches, and all the wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory and blessing, and the service of every creature.'....'Every creature which is in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and every one of them.' This means the Leviathan, the strange creatures of the fallen netherworld. Isaiah 27:1...Job 3:8 ect....'And I am going to hear them singing:..Glory, and blessings and power to YAHWEH who sits on the throne.' That is going to be one of the greatest days in all the history of the earth.
Now: lets take a look at this, after you have got everybody repented of their error, all of them singing the praises of God in the eras to come, and even in the netherworld they have made it one of the great resort places of earth, to go in the netherworld and see what it is like. Now, everyone is on the right side, so what are you going to do...take everyone of this right-happy, singing people, and torture them for ever and ever? You only fight a war to make them say UNCLE. There isn't any victory in accomplishing what you have achieved, and then torture them because some one has a sadistic idea you couldn't get them to pay enough to get them out of Purgatory? Let's fact it that is where a lot of this started. It was to get all these shekels coming in. But it is Shekinah Glory, in the presence of all the Saints of God, and The Lamb. In the presence of God Himself, this is where the torment is.
Do you remember the day when Joshua was being called by the MOST HIGH GOD to lead the Hosts of God? The Scriptures tell us about it over here in the 5th., chapter of Joshua, and here Joshua is being directed to move out. And now the forces of men, and the impact of arms and metallurgy, and the achievement of his times comes into use. But why was God sending Joshua out? Because these forces who were seeking to create pain, death and torture, and to rule with superstition and tyranny, led by Luciferian people were not to control the earth. God is not against sending men out with arms to wipe out an evil so that other men might be free. And that doesn't mean that an evil wiped out was exterminated. But they were put out of this dimension for making this trouble which is in God's way at this time. And when they get resurrected, and purified they will be useful, but not now. At the time of the Exodus, whether smoke or cloud, the word is Shekinah. It was a mist of radiant effulgent Glory which went before you, by day, and by night it was a flame of fire, and a cloud was hovering above. And inside that cloud was the vessel of God, and the person of the MOST HIGH, and His Glory just came down. When your cities had an encampment, and you were in tribal state, there was a cloud over you which just radiated Divine Glory. It didn't hurt you, it was a purifying, spiritual impact upon you, and it was already effecting the inner consciousness of your own race. When eventually the Tabernacle, and then the Temple was built, then Isaiah went into the Temple and beheld YAHWEH high and lifted up, and His Glory filled the place. When Christ took His disciples upon the mount of transfiguration, He let that inner Glory come out over Him and envelope Him with Shekinah Radiance, and His disciples saw the Shekinah Glory of YAHSHUA, The Christ.
I am going to tell you that the Glory of God is in you, and that seed is going to develop, and the Glory of God is going to spread over you. And you are told in the 60th chapter of Isaiah concerning the end of this age ...After you have rolled thru your might victory and right in the midst of your greatest conflict, you are told...Arise and shine for thy (your) light is come, and the Glory of YAHWEH is risen upon thee.' 'For behold, the darkness may cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; but YAHWEH shall arise upon thee, and His Glory shall be seen upon thee.' In fact so glorious shall be thy countenance, thy illumination, thy radiation, thy aura that it shall be unto thee an everlasting light...Thy God, thy Glory. And Isaiah said:...You won't need a sun or a moon, for there will be an effulgent light coming off God's children, because the spirit has activated them.
Do you think that is going to make the unrighteous and the evil happy? It tells me that there will be captains and kings, and they will cry to the rocks, and the mountains...hide us. Well, hide them from what? From the Glory, from the Light, from this brilliant radiance that searches out and subdues us to His Will.
Let me tell you something, if the full perfection of the Glory of God were to move out upon you, if the full perfection of God's Glory was to leave your lips, every Jew in America would get out of here. In fact they are thinking of getting out of here now, if they can't suppress what is happening in the John Birch Society, let alone the great revival God has in store for them. Did you know that revival comes this way?...God just stimulates people to do things, not to just fly away, this is the place we have to put in shape. Nothing else in the Universe needs to be taken care of, just the earth, and He sent you here to do that. And this is where you are going to do the job.
You may think that a lot of people died and got out of doing it, but they are not going to get out of their job...they are just going to be resurrected and made to do it, and they will finish their job. You don't have to worry abut the job being undone because the job is going to be finished. If God isn't big enough.....then you better find out how big HE really is. That is the reason I like that song we sang today...'How Great Thou Art', because it is just that great. Men haven't begun to measure the depth of this song, or the width, or the height of it. That is why this is the Gospel of the Kingdom, this is an Everlasting Gospel, a Gospel of glad tidings of Great Joy.
And in the fullness of time, when you have swept down the last hammer and sickle, and tho you have swept thousands and thousands of the race away in doing this, because of those who came against you, to kick themselves against the stone of His Kingdom, still later comes even for them a resurrection. There shall come for them a time when they shall be tossed alive ...thrown into the refining purposes of God's developing Spirit. Do you know that as you rule the world, there are a lot of people who will see the Light which comes out of thee? And there are a lot of people who will be tormented out of their errors, day and night because there is no way to hide from it because the Glory of God is going to fill the earth, as the waters that cover the sea.
Now;...there is just one other place where there was a word called Ara, that is a Constellation. In one of the older testaments that is translated 'Lake of Fire' and the word Ara..Lake of Fire..is just a spot way out there in the edge of the Universe. It is on all the star maps. It is just a group of planets just like yours around its own central sun. And there are some of these people who in the course of their education are going to be picked up by the gathering Angels who will come into the world. And they will be taken out there and put in isolation wards where they are going to have to behave themselves by being parasites on one another. And there will be a whole lot of Beverly Hill Mansions empty, and that area called the Bronx will be like...well almost as uninhabited as the area around a defense plant that is closed down. Because there is something God is going to do. He has in store for them, and it is the best thing that could happen to them...isolate them.
And they will be surrounded with a developing purifying agency. You may not see them for a million years or two, but that isn't very long, for you have already beheld creation after creation, and they are still going to be brought back to that orbit which God has ordained and they will say:.... Our creator..Holy Father..creator...we will worship you. We haven't time to finish a subject like this, for the whole Bible has been written about this subject. But the people have read all around it, and took out all the verses that could keep them up all night worrying. He said:...perfect Peace I give to you......Perfect love casts out all fears. Knowledge disperses out fears, darkness and superstitions. They call us hate-mongers, but let me tell you something we have more Grace than some of these people who say they love the world, but want to torture it with self righteous sadism.
We say:...'Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.'
