Hebrews 1-2 and God’s Sovereign Will Done On Earth
In regard to:
(Hebrews 2:14-18) Therefore, since the “young children” are sharers of blood and flesh, he also similarly partook of the same things, that through his death he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil; 15 and [that] he might emancipate all those who for fear of death were subject to slavery all through their lives. 16 For he is really not assisting angels at all, but he is assisting Abraham’s seed. 17 Consequently he was obliged to become like his “brothers” IN ALL RESPECTS, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, in order to offer propitiatory sacrifice for the sins of the people. 18 For in that he himself has suffered when being put to the test, he is able to come to the aid of those who are being put to the test.
So. He was *not* perfect after all. What a disappointment. Guess he was just a sinner like Adam and his “brothers”…Wait a minute..Something’s not right here.
First Adam: No Outside Genetic Influence. Perfect.
Last Adam: Hmmm. I wonder . . .
Is perfect not perfect?
Let’s be reasonable AB, but glad you asked such a question as this. (This is a full response, not “cut and paste” so please read it thoroughly.)
Also at: Jesus Christ—From Archangel to Human to Mighty God to King of kings to Forever
Recall those who read “Hebrews” were as intended, foundational advanced prophecy versed in the basic purpose and will of God regarding planet Earth’s Genesis 3:15-17 recovery as connected to Genesis 12:3 and Genesis 22:17 “Seed” progress then fulfilled in the Christ. And they had access to everything before Hebrews (61 CE) in the Bible. They had an understanding similar to Jehovah’s witnesses as far as the TOTAL PURPOSE of God regarding God’s will done on Earth, as in Heaven, as BOTH things are connected.
They knew those basics of great importance, but they had questions related to HOW these things are possible given Christ’s archangelic origin, the sinful state of humans, and HOW could these actually be brought into truly God acceptable perfection to accomplish the WHOLE PURPOSE of God regarding Earthly restoration based on this redemption.
The issue that “the Hebrews” we interested in was HOW was the Genesis 3:15, Genesis 12, Genesis 22 “seed” and mankind involved in the restoration to perfection?
We can ask why were “angels” even brought up in Hebrews chapter 1 in the first place?
How do divine sons of God, being the subject matter from chapter 1 even fit into the basic set up of this WHOLE BOOK?
Because the Hebrews knew the “seed” would be of heavenly origins. Angels are covered first not to defend some trinity concept, but because the Hebrews knew well the role this angel was to play in God’s purpose:
(Numbers 24:17) I shall see him, but not now; I shall behold him, but not near. A STAR will certainly step forth out of Jacob, And a scepter will indeed rise out of Israel. And he will certainly break apart the temples of Moab’s [head] And the cranium of all the sons of tumult of war.
(Micah 5:2) “And you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, the one too little to get to be among the thousands of Judah, from you there will come out to me the one who is to become ruler in Israel, whose ORIGIN is from early times, from the days of time indefinite.
And the “star” would “step out” of a virgin:
(Isaiah 7:14) Therefore Jehovah himself will give you men a sign: Look! The maiden herself will actually become pregnant, and she is giving birth to a son, and she will certainly call his name Immanuel.
What we take for granted today, back then the Hebrews were like HOW and WHY is it taking place in this manner? We know he is divine, yet how is it “angels” tie in as non-sovereigns, yet fundamentally “higher than man” and thus over man and earth, yet the “seed” MUST come from that spirit realm and yet be King? How has this angel assumed such far greater roles legally, and fitting in the whole prophetic framework of that time, and yet it all work as one?
HOW does that work? So Paul was about to go into some aspects of how Christ “has BECOME” better than the angels, to the extent to be demonstrated, AFTER this mission of sacrifice was totally completed. Which of course was the very point of progress the Hebrew Christian mind would naturally be at at that time.
(FYI, When Christ completed this mission He became the Mighty God Immortal Incorruptible Chosen One, he was not always INCORRUPTIBLE and IMMORTAL, he received the “superior position” from God, under God BECAUSE of the perfect mission performance. Christ EARNED the position, nothing “undeserved kindness” about him, and for that reason:
1. ” For that reason I shall deal him a portion among the many, and it will be with the mighty ones that he will apportion the spoil, due to the fact that he poured out his soul to the very death, and it was with the transgressors that he was counted in; and he himself carried the very sin of many people, and for the transgressors he proceeded to interpose.” (Isaiah 53:12)
2. ” God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground, 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)
See, Christ ALSO went through a “transformation” into Immortal Godship. He was not always of this exalted position. Christ’s post sacrificial position was not present at that former angelic time before this mission, but NOW Christ is “the reflection of [his] glory and the exact representation of his very being” just like the God reality of his Father (Incorruptible, not the “transformation”).
Yet of course subservience to the Father is the WHOLE POINT of this entire process demonstrated in this Christ and his historic process, of bringing humans into the perfection, a perfection TOTALLY DEPENDENT on subservience to God Almighty’s Sovereign REALITY, even if now “though, we do not yet see all things in subjection to him; but we behold Jesus” (Heb2:8-9) As you know even that basic Christ transformation process is lost to most modern Christians by means of Christendom error.
And now we see what “Son” means in Hebrews 1, in the total ” reflection of [Almighty God’s] glory and the exact representation of his very being” of the Father to a new level of “new creation” “Sonship”.
THAT is why “the Son” and ” the angels” are in the beginning of the book of Hebrews set up, to also cover the transformation of the archangel, into the Mighty Immortal God, and how he “has become better than the angels” “to the extent” of what these names and titles really mean after the mission was accomplished.
Keep in mind Paul was answering a BIG SET OF QUESTION “The Hebrews”, the most advanced in the prophecy, had now developed due to the completion of the “Seed’s” foretold mission. Now what? How does this work Paul???
And keep in mind those Jews were far more advanced in these basics than people on this forum. Yet they needed an update to their already advanced understanding of:
1. Angelic origins of the “seed”. (Gen12, Gen22, Mic5:2, Num24:17; And there are other Hebrew era prophecies)
2. Perfect human restoration as the purpose. (Ps133; Ps 2; Ps 110)
3. The initial purpose of the Law and the priestly sacrifices, and it leading to “the Lamb” Jesus Christ to sum all of the above up, in time.
Yet, the Hebrews had backslid a little:
(Hebrews 5:11-14) Concerning him we have much to say and hard to be explained, since you have become dull in your hearing. 12 For, indeed, although you ought to be teachers in view of the time, you again need someone to teach you from the beginning the elementary things of the sacred pronouncements of God; and you have become such as need milk, not solid food. 13 For everyone that partakes of milk is unacquainted with the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to mature people, to those who through use have their perceptive powers trained to distinguish both right and wrong.
(Hebrews 6:1-3) For this reason, now that we have left the primary doctrine about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying a foundation again, namely, repentance from dead works, and faith toward God, 2 the teaching on baptisms and the laying on of the hands, the resurrection of the dead and everlasting judgment. 3 And this we will do, if God indeed permits.
The background issue in the Hebrew spiritual mind was the “Seed” being of archangelic ORIGIN, yet he was to become the “Seed” in human form, NOT Adamic human, but perfect human. Those very questions Paul would prove to “the Hebrews” why in the Hebrew Levitical priesthood and Mosaic law terms, ALL OF THOSE QUESTIONS are already answered—hence the book “To the Hebrews”.
The Christ, though [[formerly]] archangelic as well understood by the Jews…:
(Exodus 23:20-21) “Here I am sending an angel ahead of you to keep you on the road and to bring you into the place that I have prepared. 21 Watch yourself because of him and obey his voice. Do not behave rebelliously against him, for he will not pardon your transgression; because my name is within him.
(Isaiah 63:9) During all their distress it was distressing to him. And his own personal messenger saved them. In his love and in his compassion he himself repurchased them, and he proceeded to lift them up and carry them all the days of long ago.
…had to also become true testable yet perfect human being, and not “incarnated” but born into the human family, yet perfect, perfect “seed” by action of God.
(Hebrews 4:15) For we have as high priest, not one who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tested in all respects like ourselves, but without sin.
YET REAL, BORN OF WOMAN >>>HUMAN BEING<<< IS THE POINT, and how could this come about from such a point that God’s purpose was at, at that time:
(1 Corinthians 15:42-49) So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised up in incorruption. 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised up in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised up in power. 44 It is sown a physical body, it is raised up a spiritual body. If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual one. 45 It is even so written: “The first man Adam became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 Nevertheless, the first is, not that which is spiritual, but that which is physical, afterward that which is spiritual. 47 The first man is out of the earth and made of dust; the SECOND MAN is out of heaven. (His Origin) 48 As the one made of dust [is], so those made of dust [are] also; and as the heavenly one [is], so those who are heavenly [are] also. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the one made of dust, we shall bear also the image of the heavenly one.
And AB, THOSE QUESTIONS were what were on the first century Hebrew mind! Now you know the initial setup of why Hebrews was even written, and why “angels” are the subject matter from chapter 1.
Hebrews 1 is not just a bunch of rhetorical filler, those were important angelic basis understanding of things the most spiritually advanced Hebrew background Christians NEEDED to FULLY understand, and would understand why “angels” were covered first in relation to the “Son”.
(It is probably the deepest of all the letters for this reason, in its purpose of summarizing everything “Hebrew” in prophecy, for those at that time with the deepest foundational understanding, “the Hebrews”. (Revelation is the deepest as prophecy, that sums it ALL up, but Hebrews is unique, very very important.)
1. Paul setup the context, we are talking how the “personal messenger” of God would become universal and earthly ruler, King, very big question at that time, YET respect the sovereign principles of God Almighty’s own Sovereignty and principles of it;
A. And all that according to the patterns already known by the Jews in regard to Kingdom and Temple themes that were to be reinforced in this process of proof. (The stuff Paul gets into in Hebrews later, after this set up of the logic)
2. And we are talking WHY Christ had to be a PERFECT human being (for Genesis 1:26-28 “re-creation”, “re-Genesis” reasons to come; Matt19:28), though of heavenly archangelic ORIGIN as the Only-Begotten Son of the True God. (And how that ties into “seed” and other humans being brought into this Kingdom development. (Dan7))
(Daniel 7:27) “‘And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One. Their kingdom is an indefinitely lasting kingdom, and all the rulerships will serve and obey even them.’
3. And of course how all of this, yet to come (Rev1:1), with such sovereign privilege: “But when he again brings his Firstborn into the inhabited earth, he says: “And let all God’s angels do obeisance to him.”” (Hebrews 1:6) would fully respect the original (then completed and done) Mosaic Law themes, and the “New Covenant” framework of ALL of the prophets who foretold Christ:
(Revelation 19:10) But he tells me: “Be careful! Do not do that! All I am is a fellow slave of you and of your brothers who have the work of witnessing to Jesus. Worship God; for the bearing witness to Jesus is what inspires prophesying.”
(As one can see in this logic, that above statement has a couple interesting implications to this same issue of angelic roles)
(1 Peter 1:10-12) Concerning this very salvation a diligent inquiry and a careful search were made by the prophets who prophesied about the undeserved kindness meant for you. 11 They kept on investigating what particular season or what sort of [season] the spirit in them was indicating concerning Christ when it was bearing witness beforehand about the sufferings for Christ and about the glories to follow these. 12 It was revealed to them that, not to themselves, but to you, they were ministering the things that have now been announced to you through those who have declared the good news to you with holy spirit sent forth from heaven. Into these very things angels are desiring to peer.
(Recall the Jewish Christians, were nicely situated for the next level of understanding, it was nothing like this stalled Christian “theory” and “philosophy” aspect you see today; Jewish Christians well understood the basics of the purpose of God stated since Genesis 3:15 and the role of God’s number one angel. It was after that key period of transition, that the “philosophers” of Christendom came in to confuse it all up again, mixing in anything Greek that seemed to make sense, thus also distorting the true Origin of the first angel, who later became Jesus Christ, and on. We have to put ourselves into the Jewish Christian mindset of the first century, not the total distortions after 300 AD.)
4. Which all of the above, leads to the TOTAL PURPOSE of the blood (atonement) AND BODY (sanctification) sacrifice of Jesus Christ in death in the Temple “New Covenant” REALITY being explained here (and in all Hebrews…
(Hebrews 10:10) By the said “will” we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all time.
…yet he be the LIVING Immortal High King- Priest (Heb7:16), and is yet to apply that sacrifice and the sanctification it will lead to for restored humans, for BOTH heavenly (first) AND earthly aspects to come fully, of the WHOLE redemption and global Edenic restoration purpose!
The “in the manner of Melchizedek” King-Priest covenant “decree of Jehovah” was also a new level of understanding and total interest for the Jews unencumbered by the mindsets of modern times or the Judaism stall of their times that continued. (Zech6:9-15)
(Psalm 2:6-7) [Saying:] “I, even I, have installed my king Upon Zion, my holy mountain.” 7 Let me refer to the decree of Jehovah; He has said to me: “You are my son; I, today, I have become your father.
Leads to this soon:
(Psalm 2:8) Ask of me, that I may give nations as your inheritance And the ends of the earth as your own possession.
So never give up in the tests ahead as the world reaches the pinnacle of world government defiance which it must reach, BEFORE Christ comes to depose their complete 8th King rival at global (Rev19:19-21) and universal (Rev20:1-3) scale.
(Isaiah 24:21-23) And it must occur in that day that Jehovah will turn his attention upon the army of the height in the height, and upon the kings of the ground upon the ground. 22 And they will certainly be gathered with a gathering as of prisoners into the pit, and be shut up in the dungeon; and after an abundance of days they will be given attention. 23 And the full moon has become abashed, and the glowing [sun] has become ashamed, for Jehovah of armies has become king in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem and in front of his elderly men with glory.
Thus all initial set up of Hebrews 1 and 2 is establishing the foundational truths, for Hebrew background, who understood the basics of the background of the Christ, yet had some final questions that Paul had to refresh in their minds, and summarize properly with those goals.
Now keep in mind Christ has been elevated above archangelic point of his former progress (and thus the questions in Chapter 1), and even as archangel he was already unique, older and first among all the “angels”, yet had to be the basis of all types of angels, already the “only begotten god” (John 1), but not yet immortal, as his death has proven.
The worship import of Christ’s obedience to God as archangel, human being, and God Mighty, is also an important POINT of his whole mission!!!
The Christ total Be-ing, before, during and after, is Perfection in all realms of mission: Angel, human and Mighty God.
(Hebrews 7:28) for the Law appoints men high priests having weakness, but the word of the sworn oath that came after the Law appoints a Son, who is perfected forever.
Now he is incorruptible immortality, obedience to God is a tested and sealed done deal, he never can go against God, he is in the totally INCORRUPTIBLE STATE which he was not in as Archangel, or man, he could have freewill chosen sin. But he did not did he? He remained incorrupt, true, but was not like God yet, INCORRUPTIBLE, made such by God.
What Makes “The Son” So Special if All Holy Angels are “Sons of the True God” Already?
All angels are sons of God, that “you are my Son” in final form is Christ reborn as the Mighty Immortal God, just like his father as far as now being incorruptible and indestructible. It is a new finality of Christ’s “Son” development in a key supporting covenant prophecy of Psalm 110, and its relation to Psalm 2, as part of the same “King-Priest” promise of God.
Sinful angels can be destroyed, same as men, Christ CANNOT be destroyed EVER, and that state was achieved AFTER his death as a the “joy set before him” as reward for PERFECT MISSION ACCOMPLISHMENT in ABSOLUTE MORAL INTEGRITY AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD ALMIGHTY, and God’s will, to the complete degree God assessed and gave approval of. Christ did not have that position prior to arrival, and until the mission was accomplished fully, to the death.
He achieved that superior potion AFTER the exemplar of human worship of God portion, preaching commission and sacrificial mission was accomplished.
Now Jesus Christ is the Immortal Mighty God, now he is being called that, yet Isaiah 9:6 is also “Prince of Peace” (King of kings parallel) so he will be officially “called” Mighty God, though he is, in the 1000 years reign as the original purpose is taught to all humans with no Satanic controversy and imperfection override as after Genesis 3 to today.
By the time Christ comes as Immortal Perfect Son IN THE FUTURE (the subject of Hebrews 1-2), he is no longer of the “angels” in the same sense he used to be. And then Christ will also be of that purpose of that first “new creation” elevated form of incorruptible being, as the basis of the “Re Creation” of Matthew 19:28. Now the others, the transformation of the “brothers”, being the “all stem from one” basis of the Kingdom earthly rulership perfection in Christ’s “Bride” “Holy City” and so on, became questions Jewish Christians sought answers to since Daniel 2 and 7 prophecies unveiled the first progressed details after the time of Moses and David.
Thus God is establishing the “last Adam” perfection for the human basis of recovery, and the perfect spiritual “seed” basis of some humans to be reborn in full in Christ’s new creation new spiritual form, to form the basis of the new earth and new heavens reality of the God appointed Sovereign Kingdom Agency of the ENTIRE recovery of the Earth system as “last Adam” also became a “life giving spirit” as the pinnacle, and ground up very basis, of the total earthly recovery.
(1 Corinthians 15:45-46) “The first man Adam became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 Nevertheless, the first is, not that which is spiritual, but that which is physical, afterward that which is spiritual.
But in the spiritual it will take precedent leading to the physical recoevry of all life on Earth and humans into that new human form provided by the the “Last Adam”:
(1 Corinthians 15:20-28) However, now Christ has been raised up from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep [in death]. 21 For since death is through a man, resurrection of the dead is also through a man. 22 For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each one in his own rank: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who belong to the Christ during his presence. 24 Next, the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until [God] has put all enemies under his feet. 26 As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing. 27 For [God] “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that it is with the exception of the one who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.
Recall Daniel was the first true structural revelation of more “seed” and Kingdom details:
(Daniel 7:17-18) 17 “‘As for these huge beasts, because they are four, there are four kings that will stand up from the earth. 18 But the holy ones of the Supreme One will receive the kingdom, and they will take possession of the kingdom for time indefinite, even for time indefinite upon times indefinite.’
Now being clarified in the “new covenant” and the kingdom covenant (Luke 22:28-30) details such as this:
(Revelation 5:9-10) And they sing a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, because you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought persons for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth.”
Which questions are also answered in Hebrews as to how imperfect sinful Adamic men and women would become true sinless perfection in the manner of Christ (hence also the reason why this MUST occur in Hebrews 2:14) as the basis of the restoration of all planet Earth and ALL LIFE on planet Earth. (Hence Revelation 22 tying back to Genesis 1:26-28)
(Matthew 6:9-10) “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. 10 Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.
See these things are going to take place AB, regardless of human system confusions, and there is a perfect manner in which God purposes to do all this within 1000 years, plus a little, and how and why Christ fits in from one of God’s creations, the first one, in total divine perfect logic as laid out from Genesis to Malachi, then recapped from Matthew to Revelation.
Revelation being the ultimate summary of EVERYTHING (Rev10:5-11) including the final portion to world government and the Christ arrival triggered by such sovereign defiance “when he again brings his Firstborn into the inhabited earth”. (Heb1:6)
(As you see here some claim Christ was incorruptible from the beginning. But what sort of Satanic test would it be in heaven, and on earth, for Christ, if he was such from the beginning? No, the whole point lost, which Satan inspires, is that Christ BY OBEDIENCE to God Almighty and NO ONE else, is how he achieved these divine things forever now.
There is a reward to seeking God, life and a “joy”, that will come to those who follow Christ, even to the death if need be, these are promises of God that Christ MADE REAL for mankind, as to the benefits of OBEYING God at all costs! As you know, that is totally lost in a thread such as this, and elsewhere in the Christendom dungeons.)
HANG ON TO THE ORIGINAL TRUTH! THE SUMMARY OF IT ALL, CHRIST ARRIVAL, IS COMING WITH GREAT SIGNS AND PORTENTS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL TO SAVE PEOPLE, TO ALSO RECEIVE THE JOY OF THE OPPORTUNITY AND THE DOING OF GOD’S WILL.
(1 John 2:17) Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but he that does the will of God remains forever.
(I say this too because testing days are coming on Jehovah’s witnesses, and that FIRST. (1Pet4:17; Dan11:41; Dan8:13-14; Rev8:3-5; Eze10))
So, back on track, Hebrews is answering things from about as pure a context as one can find in that first century, that is, not AS distorted as today’s context and loss of the original purpose of the “Seed” (Gen3:15, Gen12; Gen22), which was not lost to these Hebrews at that time.
So keep that in mind when reading Hebrews, it gives a greater understanding of the important real questions Paul was actually addressing for “the Hebrews” purely versed in these concepts, according to the true will of God and how earthly restoration is addressed by heavenly perfection and immortal power yet to come…
(Hebrews 7:15-17) And it is still more abundantly clear that with a similarity to Melchizedek there arises another priest, 16 who has become such, not according to the law of a commandment depending upon the flesh, but according to the power of an INDESTRUCTIBLE LIFE, 17 for in witness it is said: “You are a priest forever according to the manner of Melchizedek.”
…and why of course.
And as you are well aware, in spite of recent GB based sins, UN alliances, stalls and controversy, original Jehovah’s witnesses have explained this original purpose:
(Matthew 6:9-10) “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. 10 Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.
Like no other faith on earth for a reason, a purpose of God. Not that we are “special” but that, like in the book of Hebrews, it was time to set the truth record straight again, BEFORE Christ arrives.
And because it is a pure faith (Rev14:12) of that foundational truth, not really a “religion”, but a faith of the God and Christ foundations of the next “system of things to come”, as all humans, in time according to this Christ takeover process (Dan2:31-45), must understand the truths of God’s purpose. As you know clarifying the truth has been the incept mission of this phase of recovery since the 1870s. (that led to Jehovah’s witnesses original clarity)
Now the ministry merely must go through ONE MORE PHASE of refocus and final clarification (Zech3:1-5; Dan8:13-14) to recover the now derailed anointed Christian ministry associated with Jehovah’s witnesses, as not a religious label, but what we actually are: WITNESSES of Jehovah Almighty God’s total purpose regarding this here planet, (and Christ’s perfect role in it in all realms and states of being), that Jesus Christ shall rule, and yet was born human, from a human female virgin gateway into this realm:
(Luke 1:30-33) So the angel said to her: “Have no fear, Mary, for you have found favor with God; 31 and, look! you will conceive in your womb and give birth to a son, and you are to call his name Jesus. 32 This one will be great and will be called Son of the Most High; and Jehovah God will give him the throne of David his father, 33 and he will rule as king over the house of Jacob forever, and there will be no end of his kingdom.”
(Daniel 2:44-45) “And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite; 45 forasmuch as you beheld that out of the mountain a stone was cut not by hands, and [that] it crushed the iron, the copper, the molded clay, the silver and the gold. The grand God himself has made known to the king what is to occur after this. And the dream is reliable, and the interpretation of it is trustworthy.”
NEVER GIVE UP, even in the “seven trumpet” final fulfillment gauged days final days ahead, that yes Christ will arrive when the human system has achieved its pinnacle form of 8th King, King North World Government DEFIANCE to the Kingdom of God, and the Messianic Kingdom of the Christ.
The basis of which Kingdom coming, covered above as covered in Hebrews, is yet to complete that Messianic Kingdom REQUIREMENT (Matt24:29-31 into Rev14 final sequence), with former imperfect Adamic humans reborn for the EARTHLY restoration purpose stated, to be in that final rulership “Bride” to complete the mission as backed by God and Christ as the divine purpose unfolds to these next steps of hope and guaranteed prophecy fulfillment:
(Revelation 11:15) And the seventh angel blew his trumpet. And loud voices occurred in heaven, saying: “The kingdom of the world did become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will rule as king forever and ever.”
(Revelation 21:1-5) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I saw also the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” 5 And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also, he says: “Write, because these words are faithful and true.”
(Revelation 22:1-3) And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of its broad way. And on this side of the river and on that side [there were] trees of life producing twelve crops of fruit, yielding their fruits each month. And the leaves of the trees [were] for the curing of the nations. 3 And no more will there be any curse.
(As in the curses in Genesis 3:14-17)
(Genesis 3:14-17) And Jehovah God proceeded to say to the serpent: “Because you have done this thing, you are the (1) cursed one… (2) cursed is the ground on your account. In pain you will eat its produce all the days of your life.
As “the ground” is where the “families of the ground” come under the curse in its greater meaning. The “weeds” of “thorns and thistles” are more than just agricultural dilemma, but also in the “families of the ground” from Satan’s also present “seed” in that “ground” reality.
Hence that Hebrews 1-2 ultimate meaning. Recall all that, when you read Hebrews 1-2, and the rest of Hebrews. And you know why God even started off with the “angels” in this inspiration to Paul, not to affirm “Trinity” and “Christ was always Divine incorruptible from day one” bull, but how Michael ties into this whole development.
The Jewish Christians had a complete understanding of the “angel” God used in Egypt, and Assyria, and how he was continuing the leading of “Israel” as now the whole global picture of “Israel” and “Egypt” as global symbols of today’s global reality, that Christ STILL leads for God. Same angel, same purpose, new level in the purpose of God.
So the understanding of who Michael was and is, was no mystery to the Hebrews:
(Daniel 12:1) “And during that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of the sons of your people.
And prophecies such as that about the future were now of renewed interest.
Part 2: “To the Hebrews”
THAT is why the subject of “the angels” is how Hebrews opens up, after the “Son” is recapped here:
(Hebrews 1:1-4) God, who long ago spoke on many occasions and in many ways to our forefathers by means of the prophets, 2 has at the end of these days spoken to us by means of a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the systems of things. 3 He is the reflection of [his] glory and the exact representation of his very being, and he sustains all things by the word of his power; and after he had made a purification for our sins he sat down on the right hand of the Majesty in lofty places. 4 So he HAS BECOME better than the angels, to the extent that he has inherited a name more excellent than theirs.
(It was very important to the Christian Jews to understand HOW that “angel in the wilderness” (Isa63:9), HAS BECOME BETTER than “the angels”; and it is STILL important!)
(Hebrews 1:5) For example, to which one of the angels did he ever say: “You are my son; I, today, I have become your father”? And again: “I myself shall become his father, and he himself will become my son”?
Now Jews knew angels were sons of God:
(Genesis 6:1-2) Now it came about that when men started to grow in numbers on the surface of the ground and daughters were born to them, 2 then the sons of the [true] God began to notice the daughters of men, that they were good-looking; and they went taking wives for themselves, namely, all whom they chose.
(Job 1:6) Now it came to be the day when the sons of the [true] God entered to take their station before Jehovah, and even Satan proceeded to enter right among them.
(Job 38:7) When the morning stars joyfully cried out together, And all the sons of God began shouting in applause?
The Real Question: Since we know all angels are “sons of the true God”, what makes this Son, and this decree, and reality emerging in that era and fulfilled in Christ, so special?
(Psalm 2:6-7) “I, even I, have installed my king Upon Zion, my holy mountain.” 7 Let me refer to the decree of Jehovah; He has said to me: “You are my son; I, today, I have become your father.
As Paul gets into Psalm 110 as well:
(Psalm 110:1-2) The utterance of Jehovah to my Lord is: “Sit at my right hand Until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.” 2 The rod of your strength Jehovah will send out of Zion, [saying:] “Go subduing in the midst of your enemies.”
(Hebrews 1:13-14) But with reference to which one of the angels has he ever said: “Sit at my right hand, until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet”? 14 Are they not all spirits for public service, sent forth to minister for those who are going to inherit salvation?
1. Thus what makes this angel “son of God”, archangel though he is, so special in these terms that now take on new meaning in the beginning of the true fulfillment of Psalms 2 and 110?
2. What makes this one, now “has become”, BETTER than angels?
How is it “to the extent that he has inherited a name more excellent than theirs”? (Inherited as “Son”, from God, thus “inherited” after the mission on Earth was complete.)
Paul, what the heck is going on here? Help us understand how it all ties together!
And so Paul went into the basis of the Christ, and to what “extent” his name was to become in the “inheritance” as firstborn Son of the roles of King and High-Priest (Zech6:9-15 also applies), and HOW IT ALL TIED to the things the Hebrew Christians ALREADY understood the prophetic concepts and historic truth of, and in relation to the redemption and restoration goals of the specific Kingdom yet to be established, the one in the Davidic Kingdom covenant.
(1 Chronicles 17:10-14) And I tell you, ‘Also a house Jehovah will build for you.’ 11 “‘“And it must occur that when your days have come to the full [for you] to go [to be] with your forefathers, I shall certainly raise up your seed after you that will come to be one of your sons, and I shall indeed firmly establish his kingship. 12 He is the one that will build me a house, and I shall certainly establish his throne firmly to time indefinite. 13 I myself shall become his father, and he himself will become my son; and my loving-kindness I shall not remove from him the way I removed it from the one that happened to be prior to you. 14 And I will cause him to stand in my house and in my kingship to time indefinite, and his throne will itself become one lasting to time indefinite.”’”
But these details needed to be recapped and refreshed for their minds and ours.
(Hebrews 2:1-4) THAT IS WHY IT IS NECESSARY it is necessary for us to PAY MORE THEN THE USUAL ATTENTION to the things heard by US (Hebrews first, anointed Christians later), that we may NEVER DRIFT AWAY. 2 For if THE WORD spoken through angels proved to be firm (John1 principle), and every transgression and disobedient act received a retribution in harmony with justice; 3 how shall we escape if we have neglected a salvation of such greatness in that it began to be spoken through [our] Lord and was verified for us by those who heard him, 4 while God joined in bearing witness with signs as well as portents and various powerful works and with distributions of holy spirit according to his will?
So Paul recapped the true importance of why these foundational truths, and the angels, and the Son, and all that is very important to salvation! And we know the progressed state Christ had assumed AFTER this time:
(Hebrews 2:5-9) 5 For it is not to angels that he has subjected the inhabited earth to come, about which we are speaking.
And if not angels are even given earth’s subjection, how a man even further below angels?
6 But a certain witness has given proof somewhere, saying: “What is man that you keep him in mind, or [the] son of man that you take care of him? 7 You made him a little lower than angels; with glory and honor you crowned him, and appointed him over the works of your hands. 8 All things you subjected under his feet.” For in that he subjected all things to him [God] left nothing that is not subject to him. Now, though, we do not yet see all things in subjection to him; 9 but we behold Jesus, who has been made a little lower than angels, crowned with glory and honor for having suffered death, that he by God’s undeserved kindness might taste death for every [man].
Yet not to angels as well, but as per God’s purpose at Genesis 1:26-28, to men it was given! But that blessing was turned to a curse and now the “inheritance” is in last Adam, as Paul sets up the sacrificial reason for that subjection going to Christ.
Paul! Help us out, what does this mean???
(Hebrews 2:10-13) . . .For it was fitting for the one for whose sake all things are and through whom all things are, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the Chief Agent of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Now we are getting to the sacrifice of Christ and its connection to the subjection of Earth issue. This is as Paul sets up the further purpose in that sacrifice as to how it will answer these questions, and include the “children” as more Kingdom details emerge as validated by Christ’s sacrifice.
11 For both he who is sanctifying and those who are being sanctified ALL [STEM] FROM ONE, and for this cause he is not ashamed to call them “brothers,” 12 as he says: “I will declare your name to my brothers; in the middle of [the] congregation I will praise you with song.” 13 And again: “I will have my trust in him.” And again: “Look! I and the young children, whom Jehovah gave me.”
(Isaiah 8:18) 18 Look! I and the children whom Jehovah has given me are as signs and as miracles in Israel from Jehovah of armies, who is residing in Mount Zion.
Thus Paul by God’s spirit, is connecting how making “the Chief Agent of their salvation perfect through sufferings” is now going to amplify the meaning of the Son newer meaning as God’s purpose has progressed in Christ, “to the extent” the name has been elevated to the new position to assume the inheritance of the Earthly rulership.
Thus just how this “You are my son; I, today, I have become your father” takes on its fullest meaning for one who was already the Son, and angelic Son of the true God, as it applies to “Sit at my right hand” for this time, is explained in terms the Hebrews were already familiar with, but did not know these emerging details and “extent” of Christ’s new “superior position”:
(Hebrews 1:6) But when he again brings his Firstborn into the inhabited earth, he says: “And let all God’s angels do obeisance to him.”
At which FUTURE period is when he brings him into the “inhabited earth” is such an exalted position as foretold:
(Philippians 2:8-11) … death on a torture stake. 9 For this very reason also God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground, 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
See to the Jews, with God’s insistence on exclusive devotion, these kinds of questions had enormous interest!
Thus the question the Hebrews also had was how does dying human man fit in? Israel had that hope of the “sons” in Isaiah 8:18, but by this time the heavenly aspect of it, had opened up to fuller understanding.
So Paul cuts to the chase as the destruction of Satan and his illegal angelic rulership of earth is where this is all leading, and tying back to the Genesis “seed”, for removing a sector of Earthly illegal angelic rulership, in that of the demons, which principles of “the angels” position were already refreshed in chapter 1:
(Hebrews 2:14-18) THEREFORE, since the “young children” are sharers of blood and flesh, he also similarly partook of the same things, that through his death he might bring to nothing the one having the MEANS TO CAUSE DEATH, that is, the Devil; 15 and [that] he might emancipate all those who for fear of death were subject to slavery all through their lives. 16 For he is really not assisting angels at all, but he is assisting Abraham’s seed.
See, Christ is not “assisting angels”, he is assisting “Abraham’s seed” to regain the original position and blessing in sinlessness required to restore Genesis 1:26-18, from sanctification of the “young children”, to lead to the full Messianic Kingdom, to lead to the takeover of the earthly sovereignty, to remove the problem, and to restore the now sinful human condition back to sinless perfection, by divine High Priest role of Christ.
(Hebrews 2:17-18) Consequently he was obliged to become like his “brothers” in all respects, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, in order to offer propitiatory sacrifice for the sins of the people. 18 For in that he himself has suffered when being put to the test, he is able to come to the aid of those who are being put to the test.
And that is why Christ had to proceed in this process of God’s will and purpose, it all connects to the original “seed” purpose, in detail actually tying back to the very first Son of God, the first angel, the archangel, and the continuing role he plays in God’s purpose, from beginning and into eternity.
Recall at that time of great Christ centered events, many with the original knowledge of God’s purpose here, were very interested in these DETAILS, they were not dulled and buried in the errors of Christendom yet, and they had merely progressed beyond the last point Judaism was then stalled at, and were transcending beyond, while retaining the patterns set up in that phase of God’s purpose unfolding.
Thus to the Jewish Christian student of scripture, this “Abraham’s seed” PROMISE is what would be running in the background of their mind and heart, as they read that letter to the Hebrews:
(Genesis 12:3) . . .And I will bless those who bless you, and him that calls down evil upon you I shall curse, and all the FAMILIES OF THE GROUND will certainly bless themselves by means of you.”
Though of divine perfect spirit origins, the Christ is assisting Abraham’s “Seed”, which he also is the foremost, as God is the ultimate “aid”:
(Genesis 22:17-18) I shall surely bless you and I shall surely multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens and like the grains of sand that are on the seashore; and your seed will take possession of the gate of his enemies. 18 And by means of your seed all nations of the earth will certainly bless themselves due to the fact that you have listened to my voice.’”
And how that tied into what was already covered above. And now the “seed” is a very real concept to the “young children whom Jehovah has given me”:
(1 Peter 1:23) For you have been given a new birth, not by corruptible, but by incorruptible [reproductive] seed, through the word of [the] living and enduring God.
And that “other seed” and Hebrew 2:14 causer “of death” ties in:
(1 John 3:9-10) Everyone who has been born from God does not carry on sin, because His [reproductive] seed remains in such one, and he cannot practice sin, because he has been born from God. 10 The children of God and the children of the Devil are evident by this fact: Everyone who does not carry on righteousness does not originate with God, neither does he who does not love his brother.
So Hebrews has far greater meaning when we know the true purpose of God regarding planet Earth:
(Genesis 3:15) And I shall put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise you in the head and you will bruise him in the heel.”
To recover from the blessing turned to curse of death:
(Genesis 3:17-19) And to Adam he said: “Because you listened to your wife’s voice and took to eating from the tree concerning which I gave you this command, ‘You must not eat from it,’ cursed is the ground on your account. In pain you will eat its produce all the days of your life. 18 And thorns and thistles it will grow for you, and you must eat the vegetation of the field. 19 In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return.”
NOW cascading through sinful mankind by means of this blessing turned to curse:
(Genesis 1:26-28) And God went on to say: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every moving animal that is moving upon the earth.” 27 And God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28 Further, God blessed them and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving upon the earth.”
As Satan having the “ability to cause” death is causing much death to everything, but not for long:
(Romans 8:18-22) Consequently I reckon that the sufferings of the present season do not amount to anything in comparison with the glory that is going to be revealed in us. 19 For the eager expectation of the creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will but through him that subjected it, on the basis of hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22 For we know that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now.
And so many are interested in how “the creation itself also will be set free from enslavement to corruption”, as in not just humans, but EVERYTHING:
(Ezekiel 47:9) And it must occur that every living soul that swarms, in every place to which the double-size torrent comes, will get life. And it must occur that there will be very many fish, because there is where this water will certainly come, and the [seawater] will be healed, and everything will be alive where the torrent comes.
And that torrent is the one we just discussed:
(Revelation 22:1-3) And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of its broad way. And on this side of the river and on that side [there were] trees of life producing twelve crops of fruit, yielding their fruits each month. And the leaves of the trees [were] for the curing of the nations.
As that river loops back to this river:
(Genesis 2:10) Now there was a river issuing out of Eden to water the garden…
So the truth is, by that time of 1000 years completing, this “holy city” will have already “come down from heaven” as humans in Christ perfect human form, hence why he did what he did in blood and body whole sacrifice of a total new human being being, will ALSO have access to the “city” and to its “trees of life”:
(Revelation 22:12-14) 12 “‘Look! I am coming quickly, and the reward I give is with me, to render to each one as his work is. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. 14 Happy are those who wash their robes, that the authority [to go] to the trees of life may be theirs and that they may gain entrance into the city by its gates.
To complete where is left off in sin:
(Genesis 3:22) And Jehovah God went on to say: “Here the man has become like one of us in knowing good and bad, and now in order that he may not put his hand out and actually take [fruit] also from the tree of life and eat and live to time indefinite,—”
Thus that “tree” man was barred from by sin, and us not knowing when they would have gained access, is a form of everlasting life that failed that test, but will have the final tested opportunity to eat that fruit instead, as God will dictate when the obedient may gain full access after the Satanic testing:
(Revelation 20:1-3) And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven with the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he seized the dragon, the original serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3 And he hurled him into the abyss and shut [it] and sealed [it] over him, that he might not mislead the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After these things he must be let loose for a little while.
And hence why teaching about the importance of obedience to God, and its reward, is so important all the way to the final releasing of Satan, as he tries to entice humans to disobey God, and not receive the finality of the purpose of God to live forever, beyond even the state Adam and the first woman were in, but to the tested point of the immortality of the Christ, but as humans. “tested in all respects” “but without sin” for those who accomplish this final mission, as provided in the very example and actuality of Jesus Christ the guide to everlasting life:
(Psalm 133:3) It is like the dew of Hermon That is descending upon the mountains of Zion. For there Jehovah commanded the blessing: life to time indefinite.
(John 10:10-11) The thief does not come unless it is to steal and slay and destroy. I have come that they might have life and might have it in abundance. 11 I am the fine shepherd; the fine shepherd surrenders his soul in behalf of the sheep.
And though for these first, to help guide the process Christ leads for God:
(Romans 5:17) For if by the trespass of the one [man] death ruled as king through that one, much more will those who receive the abundance of the undeserved kindness and of the free gift of righteousness rule as kings in life through the one [person], Jesus Christ.
Also for all mankind; the whole world of life:
(1 John 2:2) And he is a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins (the firstfruits), yet not for ours only but also for the whole world’s.
(John 3:12-15) 12 If I have told you earthly things and yet you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 Moreover, no man has ascended into heaven but he that descended from heaven, the Son of man. 14 And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so the Son of man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone believing in him may have everlasting life.
(Hebrews 2:1-4) THAT IS WHY IT IS NECESSARY it is necessary for us to PAY MORE THEN THE USUAL ATTENTION to the things heard by US, that we may NEVER DRIFT AWAY.
Because Satan is out an about to this day, but nor for long, and that is why the purpose of God is being muddled up by Satan and men, all the time:
(1 John 5:18-21) We know that every [person] that has been born from God does not practice sin, but the One born from God watches him, and the wicked one does not fasten his hold on him. 19 We know we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the [power of the] wicked one. 20 But we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us intellectual capacity that we may gain the knowledge of the true one. And we are in union with the true one, by means of his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and life everlasting. 21 Little children, guard yourselves from idols.
Such as the idols now forming from Bethel, among Jehovah’s people.
GUARD YOURSELF, and keep developing faith by:
(1 Timothy 4:15-16) Ponder over these things; be absorbed in them, that your advancement may be manifest to all [persons]. 16 Pay constant attention to yourself and to your teaching. Stay by these things, for by doing this you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.
This is because we are God Jehovah’s WITNESS, regardless what happens to various distracting idols, and that forever if we imitate Christ as best we can, and have the faith in God and Christ alone, and the CONSTANT ATTENTION to the atonement provision in Jesus’ blood WHOLE HUMAN SACRIFICE, as the free gift of all these things as long as we obey, yet apply that faith in that VERY REAL SACRIFICE for our sins:
(Ephesians 2:8-10) By this undeserved kindness, indeed, you have been saved through faith; and this not owing to you, it is God’s gift. 9 No, it is not owing to works, in order that no man should have ground for boasting. 10 For we are a product of his work and were created in union with Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared in advance for us to walk in them.
Regardless which destiny we choose and are called to pursue! IT’S A BIG SALVATION!:
(Revelation 14:6-7) And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, and he had everlasting good news to declare as glad tidings to those who dwell on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people, 7 saying in a loud voice: “FEAR God and give him glory, because the hour of the judgment by him has arrived, and so worship the One who made the heaven and the earth and sea and fountains of waters.”
And that AFTER this has truly completed:
(Revelation 14:1) And I saw, and, look! the Lamb standing upon the Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads.
So Christ will complete his own ministry and assess all mankind as the human ministry cannot reach such extent:
(Matthew 10:23) 23 When they persecute you in one city, flee to another; for truly I say to you, you will by no means complete the circuit of the cities of Israel until the Son of man arrives.
Which “persecution” ceases the coming final warning as an example of such limitations in humans:
(Revelation 11:7) And when they have finished their witnessing, the wild beast that ascends out of the abyss will make war with them and conquer them and kill them.
Yet when Christ arrives and completes this:
(Revelation 11:11-13) And after the three and a half days spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon those beholding them. 12 And they heard a loud voice out of heaven say to them: “Come on up here.” And they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies beheld them. 13 And in that hour a great earthquake occurred, and a tenth of the city fell; and seven thousand persons were killed by the earthquake, and the rest became frightened and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Revelation 14 will just be BEGINNING to unfold as Christ completes his Kingdom “gathering”, and his ministry. Revelation 14 is the post Christ arrival final salvation sequence—”when he again brings his Firstborn into the inhabited earth”. (Heb1:6)
(Hebrews 10:19-23) Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness for the way of entry into the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20 which he inaugurated for us as a new and living way through the curtain, that is, his flesh, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us approach with true hearts in the full assurance of faith, having had our hearts sprinkled from a wicked conscience and our bodies bathed with clean water. 23 Let us hold fast the public declaration of our hope without wavering, for he is faithful that promised.
Thus why Paul focused on NOT neglecting “a salvation of such greatness in that it began to be spoken through [our] Lord and was verified for us by those who heard him”, as the verifications were such as that in Paul tying it all together for the Hebrews and others. Which of course untying it all is why Christendom has devolved into error and after error.
(Hebrews 13:20-21) Now may the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great shepherd of the sheep with the blood of an everlasting covenant, our Lord Jesus, 21 equip you with every good thing to do his will, performing in us through Jesus Christ that which is well-pleasing in his sight; to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
The problem in Jehovah’s witnesses is not foundational truth, but merely COMPLETING the full summary into that Christ Kingdom agency that also has yet to complete.
(Revelation 10:6-7) “There will be no delay any longer; 7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to blow his trumpet, the sacred secret of God according to the good news which he declared to his own slaves the prophets is indeed brought to a finish.”
That is why we will have to “prophesy again” to wrap it up for this human part of the ministry:
(Revelation 10:11) And they say to me: “You must prophesy again with regard to peoples and nations and tongues and many kings.”
So pay attention, more is coming, but we have a modern devolution and override at Bethel, foretold so no worries, with the same overall truth confusing purpose, but designed for the portion of the purpose we are now at, to keep the full summary incomplete as long as God allows them to proceed, which is not much longer.
But the events of getting the ministry back on the right track, will be a context of the testing of all Jehovah’s witnesses first, to wake up the crew for the final enlightenment witnessing mission to emerge from the temple judgment which I am describing for Jehovah’s witnesses when Daniel 8:13-14 (Dan11:41) events, phasing AND TIMING affirms that is the active prophecy at that time. It will BEGIN Revelation 8:3-5, and Revelation 8-11 will proceed over several final years to the very things we need to FULLY summarize and make known past the modern UN NGO Bethel stall.
Stay alert. More is coming, much more.
World government complete, functional (Dan11:45, Rev17:8-18) and stated (1Thess5:1-3; Dan12:11), triggers Christ’s arrival, not before, but AFTER it completes. That takes several more years.
Because Bethel will not divulge that SIMPLE SUMMARY, they are removed first in the process. Bethel is removed first, because Christendom goes down under world government, their global scale is too enormous to be concentrated on at this time. Bethel is the perfect place for a prophetic proportions judgment to occur, and that first and soon. (Dan8:13-14; Zech3:1-5; Mal3:1-5; Rev8:3-5)
(Revelation 19:11-16) And I saw the heaven opened, and, look! a white horse. And the one seated upon it is called Faithful and True, and he judges and carries on war in righteousness. 12 His eyes are a fiery flame, and upon his head are many diadems. He has a name written that no one knows but he himself, 13 and he is arrayed with an outer garment sprinkled with blood, and the name he is called is The Word of God. 14 Also, the armies that were in heaven were following him on white horses, and they were clothed in white, clean, fine linen. 15 And out of his mouth there protrudes a sharp long sword, that he may strike the nations with it, and he will shepherd them with a rod of iron. He treads too the winepress of the anger of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 And upon his outer garment, even upon his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
