What the Bible Really Teaches

Wednesday, 06 June 2007 Written by 

Before the Earth, planets, and the stars were ever created, there was the Almighty God, Jehovah, who always was.  Then God created His only begotten Son, the Word, and they Together created the Heavens, the Earth, and the angels.

 

(Colossians 1:15-18 KJV) "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence."

One of these angels was anointed to rule over man.  He was a high-ranking cherub called Lucifer.  Lucifer rebelled and misled Eve.  After this, Lucifer was known as Satan, Serpent, Dragon, and Devil.

(Ezekiel 28:13-15 KJV) "Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 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. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee."

After Lucifer’s rebellion and the downfall of mankind through disobedience of Adam and Eve, the Almighty God Jehovah promised to bring forth a Holy One who would rule the universe and mankind under God in righteousness.  That Holy One is the Only Begotten Son of God, the Word, Jesus Christ, who was sent to Earth to become flesh and choose His government from among mankind, consisting of those who would believe upon Him.  The world, however, hated Him.  They crucified Him, and He returned to the right hand of His Father in Heaven until the appointed time of His second coming.

(Acts 3:20-23) "And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people."

(Luke 4:43 KJV) "And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent."

At Christ’s second coming, this wicked system of things will be destroyed, and His righteous, faithful followers will be resurrected from their graves to live forever, some in Heaven and some on Earth.

(2 Peter 3:7-13 KJV) "But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness."
