BACKGROUND INTO RECEIVING AND UNDERSTANDING THE WORD OF GOD

 

At this point, the reader must narrow his attention to learning what the HOLY BIBLE has to say about the topic at hand. And to lay aside, for now, the "teachings" that affect his "value system" and how he behaves. And, now, here is what the WRITTEN WORD says about:

Luke 20:35-36

35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

ANGELS ARE IMMORTAL

Ezek 28:14. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

 

 

SATAN WAS A CHIEF ANGEL (CHERUBIM)

Ezek 28:

15. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

17. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness:

18. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

Matt 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

 

 

SOME ANGELS SIDED WITH SATAN IN THE REBELLION

 

THE FALLEN ANGELS (THOSE SIDING WITH SATAN), COMMITTED TWO SINS:

  1. FOLLOWING (WORSHIPING) SATAN

2.   REFUSING TO BE BORN OF WOMAN

COMMENTS & UNDERSTANDING

Exod 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

 

Rev 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 

 

FOLLOWING (WORSHIPING) SATAN IS A SIN

 

 

REFUSING TO BE BORN OF WOMAN IS A SIN

 

Titus 1:2. In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

 

 

GOD DEVELOPED A PLAN FOR THE "SALVATION" OF (ANGELS) SOULS

Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

 

Exod 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

 

Jer 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

 

Ps 68:20 He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord belong the issues from death.

 

Ps 86:11-13

11. Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

12. I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.

13. For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

 

Isa 65:17. For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

 

 

SALVATION BASED ON OBEDIENCE. RATHER THAN DESTROY THE FALLEN ANGELS MAN (ADAM; FLESH MAN) WOULD BE FORMED TO HAVE A SOUL THAT LIVED AS AN ANGEL IN THE FIRST EARTH AGE BUT WITHOUT MEMORY OF THE FIRST DISPENSATION THAT WOULD LIVE FOREVER AND COMMUNE WITH GOD IF HE OBEYED GOD'S COMMANDMENTS WHILE DWELLING IN THE FLESH

 

NOT ONLY DID THE FALLEN ANGELS REFUSE TO BE BORN OF WOMAN TO RECEIVE THE GRACE OF EVERLASTING LIFE, BUT THEY TOOK PART IN A PLAN TO PREVENT THE BIRTH OF JESUS

16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

 

 

THE FIRST HYBRID WAS CAIN.

EVE HAS ALREADY CONCEIVED AT THIS POINT AS SHE IS BEING TOLD BY GOD THAT HE IS GOING TO "MULTIPLY" HER CONCEPTION.

Gen 4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived,

11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

EPILOGUE

 

Let this study in the WRITTEN WORD serve as your SCHOOLMASTER as you seek the guidance of the HOLY SPIRIT in your walk in this life.

 

  1. If there is no REVEALED WORD given to you, then the WRITTEN WORD is applicable to you.
  2. If the REVEALED WORD is given to you:

 

    1. "Test" it against the WRITTEN WORD for "STRICTNESS" as the REVEALED WORD must be stricter.
    2. If the test is met, then:

                                                               i.      The REVEALED WORD is applicable to you and only you as it has been revealed to you and none other.

                                                             ii.      You should inform others of the REVELATION that each may entreat the HOLY SPIRIT of its applicability to himself.
