Our Father made all souls at some point in time and the souls existence after that time was in spirit bodies, this is the First Age. This first age had to be destroyed because of Satan and the fallen angels, Satan and his angels were in trouble way before the garden of Eden. Lets go to THE WORD of JESUS The CHRIST.
John 3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
Nicodemus was in a religion of the Pharisees, this religion exist today its Judaism.
John 3:2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Nicodemus did not want to be seen talking to Jesus, and he said "we know that thou art a teacher come from God". The Pharisees are the we, these same ones will have Jesus killed.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
This "born again" means born from above. This means born into this world age.
John 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Nicodemus does not understand this "born again", like most people today.
John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
"Born of water" means born into this world age through the womb of woman. "Born of spirit" means the death of the flesh body, then the spirit body is born.
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Friend flesh is not spirit, you have to die to be born of the spirit.
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Don't make this hard. The word Jesus means God incarnate in the flesh or born again into this world age. Our Father would not ask you to do this if He did not do it too.
John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
At death you are born of the spirit, you can't see them in a spirit body. Our Lord Jesus The Christ died on the cross for our sins, at his death He was born of the spirit.
John 3:9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
Nicodemus still does not understand, most people today are like Nicodemus. Are you blind to this or do you have eyes to see?
John 3:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
Nicodemus was high up the ladder of religion, a master is a teacher. Nicodemus knew religion but not our Father's Word, he was a teacher of a false religion.
John 3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
Nicodemus was talking to Jesus The Christ and did not believe Him.
John 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you [of] heavenly things?
Nicodemus could not deal with the truth of our Father's Word, he was blind to the truth.
John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the Son of man which is in heaven.
This is the key verse, you can't go to heaven unless you came from heaven. We were in the first world age, heaven, then we are born innocent through the woman into this age. Satan and the fallen angels would not be born of the woman, this is why they must die. They can't go to the eternity, the third world age, because Satan and the fallen angels would not be born into this flesh age. We move to the Book of Romans to learn about Jacob and Esau, in The First World Age.
Romans 9:11 (For [the children] being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)
The children were Jacob and Esau, before they were born. Both had not lived in this flesh age to do good or evil.
Romans 9:12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
Why should the elder serve the younger? Because of Election, Election means the chosen.
Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Esau was hated before he was born! Jacob was loved before he was born! How could this be? Because of what they did in the First World Age. Jacob must have been chosen because of his actions at the overthrow of Satan. Esau must have been on the wrong side.
Romans 9:14 What shall we say then? [Is there] unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
Well friend is God unfair? God forbid. You must understand the three ages or you might think our Father is unfair. You do not remember the first age because you were born of women with your brain wiped clean, but our Father remembers what happened in the first age. Jacob I loved and Esau I hated. On to Jeremiah.
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, [and] I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Our Father knew Jeremiah before he was formed in this age. Jeremiah must have served our Father very well in the first age and our Father knew He could count on him in this second age. If this is not the case, then maybe you think our Father is unfair. God forbid! Lets go back to the beginning.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
It says God created the heaven and the earth period. It does not say about time, this was the creation of the First Heaven Age and the First World Age. This creation was so far back in time, that there was no such thing as "time" as we know it, in the First Age. At verse 2 The Fist Age is over, remember you are born with a blank brain, that is why I think it jumps to the end of the First Age.
Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
This is some of the words from verse 2, and what they mean, with the strong's number so you can check me out.
08414 without form=confusion
Now lets read it. And the earth became confusion and waste. Do you think our Father creates confusion and waste? This is the end of the first world age. Not a lot is written about the first age, but it is written. Lets go to 1Corinthians to clear up some confusion.
1Corinthians 14:33 For God is not [the author] of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
The creation in Genesis is a recreation after our Father ended the First World Age. Satan tried to take the Kingdom, so our Father ended the first age to give you a chance to make up your mind without the knowledge of the first age, to follow Jesus Christ or Satan. The end of the First World Age is written in Jeremiah, as our Father warns Jerusalem.
Jeremiah 4:23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, [it was] without form, and void; and the heavens, and they [had] no light.
This is the same event as Genesis 1:2.
Jeremiah 4:24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
This is how it was at the end of The First World Age.
Jeremiah 4:25 I beheld, and, lo, [there was] no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.
Our Father left no one, He ended the first age, instead of ending His children.
Jeremiah 4:26 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.
All the cities were destroyed at the presence of the LORD, this says it all! Friend, you were there, we all were. Wonder what side you were on or maybe you were one who did not care? Esau was one who did not care about his heritage. Jacob I love. Esau I hated. The Three World Ages.
