His VICTORY… was His DEFEAT!

HIS VICTORY upon the Cross… WAS HIS WILLING DEFEAT!
HE WENT to the Cross WILLINGLY!
HE SUFFERED AND DIED WILLINGLY IN ORDER TO SAVE MANKIND!

[Mathew 16:24] Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

After Adam and Eves physical death (the death of their bodies), their souls and the souls of their descendants were still “imprisoned” by the consequences of their propateric SIN that was ~the eternal separation of man from God~ that prevented them eternally from ever returning to the presence of God. The devil had the authority and the joy on mankind to know that he had the power to prevent even those who were righteous during their earthly lives like Moses and the Prophets from ever returning to God after death. This injustice upon the righteous was pointed out by Paul in (Romans 5.14) “Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come”. In (Timothy 1:15) we are then informed of our Lords mission. [1 Timothy 1:15] “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;”

Lord Jesus (the Logos of the Father) took upon Himself the flesh and blood of man likewise, in order, he might destroy the devil through abolishing the spiritual death that in essence was the eternal separation of man from God for the entire human race. (Hebrews 2.14) “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil”; This is why, His entire life on earth was spent sinless. (1 Peter 2:22) “Who did no sin, neither was guilt found in his mouth” He never gave the devil even the smallest legal right to gain the consequences of SIN upon Him. Lord Jesus could have come down from the cross at any given moment in order to physically defeat His enemies. (Mathew 26.53) “Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels”? He could have defeated His enemies with only a glance; however, this type of action would have been in disobedience of His Fathers greatest of commandments. (Mark 12:33) “And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices”. To physically defeat His enemies was going to be an act that was to make Him a mortal leader of the strong on Earth and not a Spiritual leader of the Holy in His Heavenly Kingdom.

The awesome descend after His death on the Cross took place in Hades in order for Christ to fulfill ~all of His obligations~ including the sermon to the souls that never heard it in Hades. He took a body of a man also having a man’s soul in order for the body (mind) and soul (heart) both to be cured. He made his self-known and taught as a soul when in Hades enabling His Self after His Second Coming to rule as Lord of Justice for ALL. His prophets of the Old Testament were there before His descent teaching ~to repent~ as always!
In order for overall justice to prevail, the destruction of the devil who had the power over death was not to take place in a violent way supported by divine supremacy, but by the type fairness that should characterize a Creator God (God Logos) who was to rule after His Second Coming as a Fair and Loving Father to all of His all creations equally including demons! (Ephesians 4: 6) “One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all». His victory upon the devil was to be a victory over SIN by the man part in the God-man Lord Jesus who was also bound (for all fairness) by the consequences of the propateric sin.

After His resurrection and ascension to His Father, He becomes the “firstborn from the dead”; (spiritually dead) that in all things he might have the pre-eminence”. Lord Jesus became the New Adam (godman by nature) and became the “head of His Body Church “enabling those baptized and receiving the Holy Spirit within TO BE REDEEMED FROM ALL SIN (only God can forgive sins) and become a MEMBER OF HIS BODY! [Α Colossians 1:18] “He is the head of his body, the Church; He is the source of the body’s life” How could Christians become members of His Divine Body (part take with God Logos if Lord Jesus died and resurrected with sins?

The Church as the Body of Christ                   http://orthodoxinfo.com/general/stjohn_church.aspx

Satan had no longer the authority upon death on a New Creation of God (Saints) for having the Holy Spirit within in. [Galatians 6:15] “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature”

After the creation of His Church, the devil is allowed to make His presence known the moment of death in order to present God the various SINS of the diseased hoping to keep the soul after the Toll Houses Trials. His name Satan also means the accuser. All those not Baptised are driven straight to Hades till his Second Coming. Without the therapy of the Church (the cure from sin beginning with Baptism), life after death will meet the same consequences as before the coming of Christ where there was no hope no salvation! [Exodus 33:20] “And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live”.

The guardian angel of someone Baptised is begotten by Baptism and will defend God’s new Adam by telling the time and date a sin was confessed all through the Toll Houses in Paradise. In [John 20:23] we read “Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained”.

Baptism redeems ALL SINS and this becomes possible by taking the Holy Sacrament of Baptism. Confession (to confess one’s sins) is known by the Holy Fathers as “the Second Baptism” because it also redeems sins and helps to deliver a soul pure from sin enabling it this way the return to the presence of Creator God. [Mathew5:8] “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”.

Through Confession and the participation of the Divine Life of the Church, a person can pass way sinless hoping to the return of the presence of His Creator God.

Epilogue
In [2 Timothy 2:5] we are informed about how we need to strive during our entire lifetimes after Baptism to achieve Salvation! “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully”.
In (Luke 17:21) we are informed of  how those who become worthy are crowned! “No one will say, “Look here it is”! Or, “There it is!” because the Kingdom of God is within you”.

Who is Lord Jesus?
[Revelation 21:6] “Lord Jesus Christ is the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the CAUSE of the CREATIONAL BEGINNING, the CAUSATION OF CREATION, the SUPREME and UPMOST PURPOSE FOR ALL CREATIONS ”.

A Reflection of Light

The Relationship Needed to have with God from the Beginning.

Lord Jesus (the Logos of the Father) was not a man who became a God, He was Creator God who took the body of a man without ever losing his Divinity for man’s Salvation. [Revelation 21:6] “Lord Jesus Christ is the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the CAUSE of the CREATIONAL BEGINNING, the CAUSATION OF CREATION, the SUPREME and UPMOST PURPOSE FOR ALL CREATIONS ”.

God created man, the same way He would like to be a man (knowing He was to become one) after creating the angels..He created man in His image (Nous Logos Pneuma).

God creator could have had created  man any way He very well pleased, to be able for instance to see the distance of an eagle, or to see in the darkness like an owl, to be able sit on distant mountains and communicate the vast distance that whales do in the water, man could  have a face that is a common face to all his creations like animals have common faces, where God would be the only one to know and  distinguish a person ….He created man however to be a social creature, he gave him the type senses, to only be able to see and hear and respond in an arm’s length  (to be a social creation),  and most of all to be able to have eternal relationships by being born in a family!  (Lord Jesus also has a mother now who He dearly loves).  According to the Holy Fathers of the Greek Orthodox Church God is known to be a PERSON because He is known to talk to people like Moses and His Saints PERSON to person! This is how Adam and Eve know Him as a person. In [Mathew 8:29] demons recognize Jesus as “the Son of God” who has the authority to torment them BEFORE THE TIME (Second Coming). How could they know him now if they did not already know Him when He was in Paradise with His Father before He took a flesh body of a man?

[Mathew 8:29] “And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time”?

God did not want to force His presence on to His creations just because He was their creator God. He wanted His creations to obey Him because they Love Him! That is why hidden within creation was the possibility in case of denial/disobedience the unfolding of cosmological events that were going to take place manifesting a life away from His presence a place where Adam and Eve could live independently in the absence of God and on their own.
Obeying all of His commandments for their Salvation after the coming of Lord Jesus and the creation of His Church is based on the same principals of obedience leading to theosis (becoming His Likeness) that was needed for Adam and Eve. The word Salvation means “salvation from death” and the word “death” means “the eternal separation of man from God!

The question now is this. Who does God know as to who are those who really love Him? The answer is in the New Testament.  [John 14:21] “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him”.

The Obedience of love that God is for looking for in the New Testament that was the same as Paradise could not be possible if Lord Jesus sad on His throne on a cloud with the Glory of His Father after His resurrection!  This would have been an infringement of man’s freedom…his freedom to choose with his heart!  God’s human creations (mankind) would have not then been obeying His Commandments because they LOVE Him,  put because they FEAR of Him!  Their acts of obedience would have then been accompanied with a certain amount of a personal ~self- interest~ that was surely going to be accompanied by hypocrisy. Lord Jesus Paradise would then have been filled with hypocrites! “Look, Jesus…I am helping granny across the street” Look Jesus I am giving money to this poor person” !

The Love of the Apostles                                                                                                                  The Love of the Apostles that describes the ~LOVE of Christ~ is the love that the Apostles gave to the world, without ever asking anything from it!

Lord Jesus will not manifest Himself to anyone in order to get to know Him personally in the absence of the type obedience that is given birth to ~form our True love emotions toward Him~, because He is an All Knowledge God who is Everywhere Present who always knows our motives and our true intentions!

When all of the preconditions (through Love and obedience) are fulfilled, God makes his presence known in our hearts!                                                                                                        [2 Corinthians: 4:6. “God makes His Light shine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of God’s glory shining in the face of Christ.                                                                                [Gal 2:20] “So that it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me” [1 Corinthians 3:16]  Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God”?

If disobedience was to continue with Adam and Eve and their descendants in Paradise, God would have had to become a ~Police Man God~ for the various unsolved issues of mankind and not a loving Father to those who will live with Him in His Heavenly Kingdom because they TRULY love him. [Luke 17:21] No one will say, “Look here it is”! Or, “There it is!” because the Kingdom of God is within you”.

So obeying His commandments is the remaking of the morality of man to the morality of God Creator, and the returning to His Presence (Heavenly Kingdom) is His invitation to return to His Presence as His adopted sons and daughters (His family in a LOVE relationship that will certainly last for all eternity!

Genesis 1:3 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light”.

God is Light, and the Saints become light!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Adam and Eve where were given leather tunics (flesh bodies) to be able to live in the absence of God and away from Paradise. [Genesis 3.2]  “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them”. It was the moment in time when the Grace of God needed for their daily needs was replaced by the gift of logic. This gift we understand as logic is the eye through which man who is in the image of God (Nous -mind) Logos and Pneuma), could see/know the all wisdom and creativity of God from their place of exile the material universe in order to be aided to acquire the desire in their hearts and the need to know there is a Creator God who they need to know and return to!

A priest named Lemaitre who was a mathematician and a cosmologist studied Einstein’s formulas in order to see “how would they exactly apply” to the beginning of the universe. In 1927 he formulated the concept of the primal atom. He thought of this by theoretically “turning evolution backward” (using the formula) to a point at a time all matter (galaxies) were concentrated into one sphere no larger than our sun!!!
Allowing ourselves then to be “at the spot” observes of this particular stage of this early cosmic event, (one sphere) we become hand on witnesses of certain unquestionable facts that may have an ever-changing impact of our belief of God, the Holy Bible, and Creation.
According to this scientific research the primal atom, was “a fiery sea of radiance”, the light from which it all began. Genesis :(3) “Let there be light and light appeared’ (4) “God was pleased with what he saw” This means that we as human beings are creatures like angels who were created from the light! We will further support this statement by seeing how science itself divides the history of the universe in Two Ages.

The Two Ages of the universe
1st age.
It is interesting to know that Science divides the history of the universe in 2 ages. They first speak of the age of the dominance of the radiance, and afterward, they speak of the age of matter. During the first age that lasted 400.000 years the “representatives” of light the photons, and the “representatives” of matter the particles of their nucleus remained stable as far to their numbers.
2nd age
Science explains how matter can be created from light. “there was a time when temperatures were height enough that allowed collisions amongst photons to create particles of matter consisted of clean energy…2 quantum of radiance meaning 2 photons, can collide and disappear while all their energy and their boldness be disposed for the production of 2 or more particles of mater. Because of the photons immense energy, their radiation contributes much more to their energy than their matter. For these reasons, the scientists support the approach that during that 1st age of the universe, the first matter was light.
We have seen the possibilities of an existence of a primal atom, a fiery sea of radiance a planet of light!
We are also able to post to ourselves the following reasonable theological question. “If someone was to live on that “planet”…Adam and Eve… one sphere no larger than our sun… Could this be Adams and Eve’s Paradise?
Let us now ask ourselves, who was in the Old Testament who said: “Let it be Light”? It was God Logos the Logos of the Father [Revelation 21:6] that was to take a body of a man later without losing His Divine Nature in order to aid humanity back to the presence of creator God!
Lord Jesus) the Second Person in the Holy Triad is consubstantial to His Father and the Holy Spirit.                                                                                                                                        THE SYMBOL OF FAITH (of the Orthodox)

The Church Bishops gathered together in order to find a way to formulate the Truth, in order to find a way to express it so it could be understood by all.                                                                              http://mb-soft.com/believe/txh/nicene.htm

The word Salvation means “salvation from death” and the word “death” means “the eternal separation of man from God!

Who in essence is Lord Jesus?                                                                                                               [Revelation 21:6] “Lord Jesus Christ is the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the CAUSE of the CREATIONAL BEGINNING, the CAUSATION OF CREATION, (who makes for this reason) the SUPREME and UPMOST PURPOSE (OF LIFE) FOR ALL CREATIONS (humans)”.

GOD IS LIGHT AND THE SAINTS IN THE HOLY SPIRIT BECOME LIGHT
The Image and Likeness of God

 

 

ONE TREE, One fruit, all seeds!

All seeds were given birth to by ONE TREE alone Adam!

Within Adam’s DNA, were found all the various expressions of man (life/races) that were to come into being after being exposed to the right climate circumstances (Africa, North pole, Carribean) in order to help those born to adapt into the many verities of environments found in the four corners of the world where they were to go to!

God created all mankind by using three different methods. He first used clay, then Adams rib and then semen. Remember how God created Adam from clay? When God created Eve He did not take soil from the ground again in order to make her also, he took a part of Adams’ rib and created her! The Holy Bible does not mention that God “blew” into Eve’s nostrils in order to ALSO bring her into life. Her soul was begotten along with Adams’ rib (body) when she was born.
Eve was born from Adam this way! The method of course for their children and the rest of mankind was semen.
What does this say for humanity? All of MANKIND who are the descendants of Adam and Eve were created by God through ~ONE PERSON~ Adam alone!

God had a very special plan for Adam and Eve in Paradise.

***Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”

***About the fish the sea the birds and the cattle                                                                 Angels are considered to be intangible and yet to their creator God they are very materialistic. Likewise, the fish of the sea created and the birds of the air and every creeping thing in Paradise was created like the angels from the light!

God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:26-27)
Man was created in the “IMAGE of God” but becoming His Likeness it was a deed that was to take place only if Adam and Eve wanted to by their own free will!

God created man to be in His ~IMAGE~ Nous (mind), Logos and Pneuma (spirit). The Image of God in man describes all of the means by which man could know God PERSONALLY. This is why the Holy Fathers of the Greek Orthodox Church teach that “God is a PERSON because He is known to talk to people like Moses and His Saints PERSON to person! The greatest gift that God gave to man and to His angels is their freedom, their freedom to choose! He created all of His angels free (proof is the fallen archangel Lucifer/snake) and this is the same gift He provided Adam and Eve.
This is why for becoming the LIKENESS of God (the UNION of God) was something that was going to take on their own free will only if Adam and Eve wanted to!

This UNION of God with man (becoming His LIKENESS is known in the New Testament as becoming Holy, New Creation (part man part God) New Adam, the overcoming of mortality and Eternal life! “And eternal life means knowing you, the only true God, and knowing Jesus Christ, whom you send” [John 17:3]

The conditions of God for becoming Holy (UNION with God) are described in the New Testament in [John 14:2]. The ONE WORD God gives the most emphasis in this verse here is the word LOVE which is the ONLY FOUNDATION upon which God wants a person to obey His commandments! “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him”

Being disobedient by first eating of the forbidden able following the refusal to repent are Adam and Eves sins the events that caused the unfolding of cosmological events ~build in within creation~ that was to unfold manifesting the new WILL of God for the Salvation in case of disobedience! If God went on and overlooked sin and recreated Adam “a god by the Grace of God” (Holy) after he had sinned/disobeyed, then Adam would have had the notion in his mind that being partaken (United) with God, does not exclude disobedience!

The New WILL of God for the SALVATION of man was delivered by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost with 85 Holy Apostolic Canons (rules) by which Lord Jesus (God Logos) became the “head of His body the Church” enabling this way those baptized TO BE REDEEMED FROM ALL SIN (only God can forgive sins) and become MEMBERS OF HIS BODY ~PART man part god~! [Α Colossians 1:18] “He is the head of his body, the Church; He is the source of the body’s life” http://orthodoxinfo.com/general/stjohn_church.aspx

Cannons of the Apostles
http://www.voskrese.info/spl/aposcanon.html
These Holy Apostolic Cannons that establish our Lords presence in His Church as High Priest and Mediator to His Father for each and every one of us ensure man’s freedom, they were set forth to free man from his biggest tyranny that is sin, and they are aimed to set man free from his biggest tyrant who is the devil.

Through Baptism Jesus Christ Himself reshapes and makes man partaker of a divine nature. It signifies the beginning of a potential dynamic process in one’s path toward the Kingdom of God. Baptism introduces people to the place of their Salvation that is the Ecclesia (Church) and grants them the right to participate to all the other Holy Sacraments. The Holy Baptism is also known as the Holy Sacrament of Rebirth. It is becoming “a god by the Grace of God”! The purpose of Holy Baptism is to remove the consequences of the original sin (eternal separation from God), is to allow a person to become a vessel of the Holy Spirit (Saint) to become a member of His Holy Body. This is why during Baptism the priest calls upon the sponsor to renounce the devil and all of his works. Baptism described in the Holy Bible cannot take place without Lord Jesus (God Logos) partaking as High Priest and Mediator to His Father with His Holy Sacraments.
If it was not for the schism in 1054 AC the total of humanity would have been praising God and seeking Salvation the Greek Orthodox  way today.

The “churches” that started to show up after the schism, took the Holy Bible and “threw away” the Church that wrote it! The will of God for the Salvation of man was then replaced by the will of man!

Without the Church created by the Apostles begotten by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost, there is no ~part take with God~ because man cannot ~purify his heart~ on his own in order to allow God to make himself His Temple. [Mathew 5:8] is very lucid! “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” If in turn, man is not able to attract God within he will never be able to become His Temple will never be able to see Him and live! [Exodus 33.20] “And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live”.

Without the Church created by the Apostles begotten by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost, life after death will meet the same afterlife conditions as before of His coming where there was No Hope No salvation!

Confes-sion

He sacrificed His Son Lord Jesus (God Logos) in order to become the “head of His body the Church” enabling this way those baptized TO BE REDEEMED FROM ALL SIN (only God can forgive sins) and become MEMBERS OF HIS BODY! [Α Colossians 1:18] “He is the head of his body, the Church; He is the source of the body’s life” [http://orthodoxinfo.com/general/stjohn_church.aspx]

In (John 20:23) He is talking to the Apostles in essence He is  giving them the authority  on His behalf by breathing on to them  to forgive sins! [22] And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: In verse 22 Lord Jesus gives the Apostles authority to do something important by also involving (he breathed on them) the Holy Spirit. Today’s Orthodox priest have what is called Apostolic Succession and they receive the Holy Spirit (the authority) thought the Holy Sacrament of Ordaining a priest. These actions authorized by our Lord were given approval by the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in John 20:21 and they are of the greatest importance for the Salvation of man. The importance of the remittance of sins is mentioned in verse 23

[23] Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

The sins talked about in verse 23 cannot possibly be remitted if they are not heard first. Confession (to tell ones sins) is also a Holy Sacrament of the Church.. Man can not possibly ask to live in the presence of God with sins.

Death before His Second Coming. Bringing Toll Houses to a better understanding

They are known as “the Aerial Toll Houses”  [Ephesians 2:1.2] “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.

The devil no longer “worketh” in children of disobedience after Baptism (union with God) and Salvation The devil no longer gets to claim all souls for his like he did before the coming of our Lord Jesus and the creation of His Church he has no say so as to who gets past him to Paradise to the throne of Godman Lord Jesus!

First will come Resurrection and then Ascension!

Toll houses provide a fair/legal outcome for those Baptised as delivered by the Holy Spirit 2000 years ago that will satisfy the placement of a soul before His Second Coming for demons and guardian angels both. Before the coming of Lord Jesus and the creation of His Church as a therapeutic institution from SIN the devil had the authority to take ~all souls~ to Hades including the righteous like all of the prophets of the Old Testament. Those Baptized however that are UNITED with God (Galatians 3:27) will go through a “judgment before the Judgment” hearing that will determine for those Baptized the waiting place between Paradise (the presence of God) and Hades till His Second Coming. The devil and his demons all partake in this toll houses judgment, for God is a fair loving and just Father to all of His creations including his fallen angels who loves all.  In the absence of Baptism by the Church created by the Holy Spirit 2000 years ago, a soul is driven by demons straight to Hades as they allways did  till His Second coming to await the rendering of His Justice at which time Lord Jesus and His Saints who were remade to a New Creation (Colossians 3 10) by Baptism and remained worthy, will Ascent to the Heavenly Kingdom (to the city as described in Revelation 21:2) where Lord Jesus will be High Priest and King eternally.

The conscience

in the Greek Orthodox Church, the Holy Fathers teach that ~The mind of the MIND~ is the CONSCIENCE. The conscience which is described to be LAW testifies to the present of God in the heart without His presence and without hindering man’s freedom! According to the Holy Bible, those who have never heard of Lord Jesus and those who have kept their conscience clean will go to Paradise. 

[Romans 2:14] 14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

Saint Macarius of Moscow.
After quoting numerous examples of Church Fathers who taught the Toll Houses he writes. “Such an uninterrupted, constant and universal usage in the Church of the teachings of Toll Houses especially amongst the teachers of the 4th century, indisputably testifies that it was handed down to them from the teachers of the preceding centuries and it is founded on Apostolic Tradition.”
Orthodox Dogmatic Theology, vol 2 (1883) p.535

To be indifferent on Church Tradition meaning Toll Houses, Is to be indifferent on Church Tradition begotten from Revelation from God!.
God bless

Beloved brothers and sisters,

Lucifer (the devil) was sent way from Paradise however he was not done away with by God who loves all of His creations equally who did not take away his life or freedom. Being free to “run around” on earth he is authorized to only do what he did in Paradise. He “sits” around peoples hearts /souls (that are of a heavenly nature) and he speaks sweet nothings that men and women can relate to he makes the type suggestions that will eventually lead if accepted to the eternal separation of man from God! He can not force anyone to do anything however his goal is to make each man and each women SIN as much as possible.

Logismoi=Succestions coming from demons.                                                                                  These demonic successions (logismoi in Greek) can only be recognized as harmful by the Baptised Orthodox Christian person who knows he needs to acquire the morality of Christ  (all virtues} and overcome all passions in order to acquire the type morality that will attract the Grace of God and lead him to the Heavenly Kingdom.                                      To the person who was not Baptised the way  delivered by the Holy Spirit 2000 years ago, they do not know that Salvation is all about SIN and not KNOWLEDGE  and so they are not aware of the fact that the sustaining of the purity of the heart begotten at Baptism is the main precondition for Salvation/theosis…there by a logismos (an evil succession) is received just like another common thought and not something that needs to be eliminated from the heart and the mind!  [Mathew5:8] “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”.

God is known to be a Person because He is known to talk to people like He spoke to Moses PERSON to Person. The devil (the fallen archangel) is also considered to be a person because he is also known to talk to people person to person.

The Triad God, Father Son Holy Spirit (the ONE God) as Revealed to His Saints in Orthodoxy (ancient Church present today) is known to be everywhere present and AT ALL TIMES. The devil, on the other hand, being a creation of God can ONLY BE PRESENT at ONE PLACE at a time.

The pyramid will provide the devil with the necessary social-political structure needed (like in ancient Egypt and China) of men and women obedient to carry out his plan. In exchange for their “services”, they receive good social positions offered and gold but for an exchange. The moment of death they will deliver their soul to Lucifer the devil for all eternity.

His plan is to set on the top of the Pyramid the one person (the ruler) that suits him the most.

BY TAKING then CONTROL (possession) of the “chosen” one, He has “ruled” Egypt and China etr.  The gold garments by which the dead mummies are dressed symbolize the means by which he rules the hearts and minds of men…GOLD

Lucifer: “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God***

2.Giants

After Adam and Eve find their selves in exile because of disobedience, later Cain kills his brother Abel. Seth who was born later and he was the next son of Adam and Eve was very pious along with his family and the generations that follow thought him and so they were called by God for this reason  “sons of God”. When the sons of God (the descendants of Seth) started to become disrespectful to God’s commandments by coming in intercourse with the sinful women of the pagan descendants of Cain they started to give birth to children by concession of God that became renown because they were giants.

In the verse of [Genesis 6: 4], the daughters of Cain (the women sinners) are described as daughters of men, and the men descendants of Seth who bared children with them are described as sons of God. [Genesis 6:4] there were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bear children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Men and women being named “sons of God” is a description found in the New Testament very often.[2 Corinthians 6:18] “And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty”.[Mathew 5:9] Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.[Luke 6:35] “ But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest”[Romans 8:14] “14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  ”[Romans 9:26] “26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

3.Egyptian staues

This is one of the unknown horrors enforced by the “god” of the Pharaoh (Lucifer) onto to human beings in those times.  According to John, the body must dissolve in the ground before the soul can go to its resting place and the devil knows it!

[John 24: 24] “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. The corn talked about here by Lord Jesus is the human body. Corn will not bring forth fruit unless it falls into the ground and dies. Likewise the human soul will not move onto the next life (bring life/fruit) unless placed into the ground in order to dissolve first!                                             

 

Are we as a human race ever going to ever learn to fear man more than God?
