"For God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of his own eternity (Wisdom of Solomon; Apocrypha) Chapter 2:23".
"All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
So it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. As we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 1 Corinthians (15:39-49)".
The long-term spiritual part of our total existence has unfortunately been concealed by the forces of evil in a robust effort to keep mankind from the goodness which has always been intended for the creation. This artificial society in which we live was designed to focus on temporary things mainly to love of money, and the things purchased through money. This short sighted illusion of progress, or wealth often cheats people out of the permanent wealth that comes with having ones name written in the Lamb's book of life. The scriptures here are speaking only of those who have been found worthy of bearing the image of the Heavenly.
"For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. (1Corinthians 15:53-54)".
Death was never part of the Lord's originally intended plan, and it was the forces of evil that have brought death to the world. Understanding the extreme evil of the devil helps one to be aware of the fact that these forces of evil are not satisfied with your temporary death. The devil has an intense envy and hatred for all of God's creation, and having human beings join him in his wicked plans (NWO) ensures they too will suffer the permanent death; which is the "second death" known as the living death.
With all mankind's science and technology, and with all the intelligence that has been gained over the years, all this is minuscule in comparison to what mankind does "not" know. A comparison of man's rudimentary knowledge to that of the spiritual world would be a small bucket of water compared to all the oceans, lakes, seas, rivers, and streams of the world. The point is we as human beings have very little knowledge of the spiritual reality. The only two sources of obtaining knowledge of the spiritual are from the opposing forces who dwell in the spiritual realm, (who are already immortal). It's either the Holy Scripture, or the occult as a source for information; there is no mixing the two.
Without delving too far into matters beyond human comprehension one can only examine the world around us noting the accomplishments which are far beyond what mere mortals could do. It is not however beyond our mental aptitude to deduce from the world around us that someone had to know before hand the precise distance the earth must be from the sun to provide a suitable environment for life.
And how could the correct distance between the two planets be determined without first knowing the precise temperature of the sun? Someone had to know what would be needed to guard those on earth from any damage from the sun that was designed to give us heat and light. The bearers that surround the earth along with the isolation and protection from radiation were put in place by the one who knew what earth's surrounding bearers would be needed for.
Placing this huge planet earth on axis which has a precise orbit around the sun is engineering far beyond what a mortal could even dream of. The slight tilt of the earth in it's orbit at certain times of the year brings a change of the seasons, someone had to know before hand what effects would take place as a result of the earth's movements. One can recognize from the two poles (north and south) which are brutally cold, to the equator which constantly maintains a high temperature that earth is in the "precise" location to sustain life.
Consider if you will the moon which reflects light at precise angles from the sun providing a night-light for the earth, who would know how to do this before it was done? Also when considering the moon with it's gravitational pull causing the ebb and flow of tides how can we overlook the engineering involved to make all this possible ?
"Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: (Jeremiah 31:35)".
The laws of gravity, inertia, magnetism, and motion to name a few, and the operational duties of these laws could only be created by a very powerful God. ( Bear in mind the great envy of Satan compels him to have his followers parrot the absolute absurdity, that all of this great creation just happened by chance or coincidence; it "just evolved"). The question becomes why didn't life "just evolve" on all the other planets that are just as old or much older than the earth?
What life could exist without oxygen? By taking notice of what has been created to manufacture the oxygen needed to sustain life indicates well thought out plans that were put into operation to make the environment on earth suitable for life. Of what use would oxygen be without the lungs to process the air for the sustenance of life? Someone had to know before hand how to design lungs or some other method for all living creatures to utilize the air provided to us for life.
To maintain the apparatus which brings forth oxygen such as plant life, and specialized insects designed for pollination we see the creators work. The wind is used by large stationary trees to reproduce and maintain that which is needed for the production of oxygen. We find huge forest including rain forest that help supply what is needed for life. Seeds of plant life, some of which were designed to float on the wind to find soil for reproduction.
Just a small part of the many functions of the ego systems has been mentioned, and how the cycles, systems and creatures of the world perform specialized tasks in a organized way for life on earth is truly remarkable. The whole point being made here is that we can see from God's creation that everything is geared toward "life" and the common good. We find mankind being the highest of the creation, and made in the image of God. It seems highly inconsistent with the type of majestic greatness one can witness from the systematic natural operations found on earth for human beings to just die; most not living a single century.
Focusing on the creation shows that the one having the "wisdom" and "power" to bring into existence such an elaborate and complex world also has the ability to raise all the dead. It is written you will know them by their works. The Lord has not excluded himself from this standard, and in a logical way we find this standard useful to recognize how ones works tells us something about who is responsible for such works. Examples of the forces of Good work would be toward life, peace, truth, and justice etc. On the other hand the adversaries works are toward death, deception, greed, poverty, and pain.
The appreciation of an sunset as the light gradually diminishes into various colors reflected off the clouds is something beauty to observe. Or to behold an adorable sunrise, which paints the sky with an assortment of light and colors slowly intensifying into a new day; this is no small production! Considering all that it took to make a sunrise happen this phenomenon could literally be called miraculous.
Take for example a simple flower who's form and beauty is only matched by its fragrance. Or all the creatures large, small and very small uniquely designed to carry out various duties in environments well suited for them. Bird's who have wings and beaks crafted in special ways to sustain themselves and others. The wide array of fish of unique designs and color's performing various tasks while giving glory to God by their underwater presence. Predators of the terrain blending in to their territory eliminating the sick, weak and lame (Physical and mentally) which is helpful overall to the prey.
This great marvel of creation placed before us contains many messages, and understanding that some creators are nocturnal others forage during the day, some live alone, other in herds and packs. Some creatures exclusive habitat are trees, others in open land, grassland, underground, or in mountainous areas. All gifted with various ways of sustaining and protecting the lives God has blessed them with. Whether it be camouflage, keen senses, poison, speed, size, numbers, flight, brute strength, or chicanery, God has equipped all of the creation with a method of protecting and sustaining their lives.
It's true we in this day have never seen God, however if we are observant enough we can learn from the creation, and in a reassuring sort of way see God though the marvelous creation he has provided.
Now that the background information has been put forth the subject of immortality can be discussed. It's not easy to speak directly about immortality because far too many have to see things with there own eyes before excepting things as being factual. Individuals taking this position might want to ask themselves, who are they to require that an immortal first show their presence... as if they are doing immortals a favor for believing that they exist.
Immortals without a doubt exist, and there is enough indirect evidence to confirm their existence. Part of our test as mortals is to choose which path to follow based on the word left to us from the Lord God. It would not be much of a test if we could actually see the behind the scenes forces of good and evil. One would know immediately the losing side in this war just by the repulsive sight of those immortals (demons on earth) who are already extremely cursed.
Human beings would have lost the war against evil because no moral was found that could live a sin free life. So it took one who was already a gloried immortal to be transformed and born as a flesh and blood human being. The victory that was gained from one human being completely overcoming the deception of the devil made it possible for mortals to live as glorified immortals. Just as blood was used by Israelite priest to cover the sins of the people, unfortunately sin and corruption increased, and the blood of animals was no longer adequate. A great cornerstone in the heritage of the Israelites is the Passover, and for very good reasons. It was the blood of the Lamb which protected the Hebrews from death.
Later on in the history of the Israelites we find one known as the Lamb of God, and after the last supper his blood was shed having the power to save God fearing human beings (mortals) from the second death. Upon his death the son of God who became an human sacrifice for the sins of mankind, secured a great victory in the war of Good and Evil. After the death of the Lamb of God three days and nights passed and he was resurrected from the dead becoming once again an immortal.
In the part of the Lord's temple that was in Jerusalem a section known as the Holy of Holies where the ark of the Covenant, and the mercy seat were kept had a veil that was rent in half indicating the gateway was secured making it possible for common mortals to be gloried immortals. The framework for passage into gloried immortality had been successfully accomplished, and the Heavenly Father was well pleased.
"I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (Revelation 22:16)".
The bright and morning star spoken of here is the glorified body the Lord received after his resurrection from the dead. Those who's names are found in the Lamb's book of life will be the fortunate ones, and to receive the morning star body can be considered the highest of blessings. Upon receiving the this gloried body from the womb of the morning (Psalms 110:3) all the rules change in terms of ones existence. It has not been revealed through Holy scripture all the powers and capabilities of one having a morning Star body, one so eminently blessed as to receive such an high honor. What has been revealed is they can never die, they are incorruptible, and they can adjust the brightness or their appearance by turning up, or down the glory or (brilliance).
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory? 1Cr 15:55
It's all consistent with the covenant given to Abraham when the Lord showed him the nights sky and: "he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be (Genesis 15:5)". So this nation promised to Abraham was figuratively equated with the stars in terms of multitude, but even more astonishing is the fact that this new nation of those resurrected from the dead, and called to the marriage supper from the living will be the new nation (who are immortal) that will literately resemble the brightness of stars.
To bring clarity to the subject matter those operating the New government will be arrayed in light, for example the fourth man would have the morning star body, or the one hidden by the curtain, and the ones difficult to look upon. Moses the Hebrew was known to have looked upon an immortal (who is the Lord) upon Mount Sinai, this drawing depicts how the brilliance of the Lord affected his appearance.
"The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thin everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. (Isaiah 60:19-20)".
This is speaking of the Our Lord shining in his full glory providing light brilliant enough to be equated with the sun (which is a star). The world has not seen awesome yet, and to witness the Lord in his full glory will happen some time after his return to the earth with the Saints of the most High. At that point dominion over the earth will be in the Lord's hands and of his kingdom their will be no end.
It is written: "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this (Isaiah 9:7-8)".
With so many positive changes taking place on the earth (in that day) the information would be incomplete without commenting on the temple. This temple from the Heavenly Fathers is another step in fulfilling his plans for the earth, also complimenting those with power, glory and infinite sovereignty the temple will be sent down to earth 10 centuries after the Lord's return. The temple will be placed in the same area outlined in the covenant made with Abraham, which speaks of the possession of all the land from the Nile to the Euphrates rivers. This temple will be the location for which the New incorruptible government will operate.
The colossal size of the temple will measure 12,000 furlongs which equals roughly 7,920,000 feet. The 12,000 furlongs will be divided into the four sides of the temple, this measures out to 3,000 furlongs, or 1,980,000 feet for each side of the temple. One furlong equals roughly 660 feet, and a mile equals 5,280 feet. The 3,000 furlongs is equivalent to 375 miles on each of the four sides. With all sides being equal the height would extend to 375 miles or 1,980,000 feet upward.
The building materials are known to be of the same material found in precious stones, and based on the dimensions of the temple structure enormous slabs of precious stone materials would have to exist only in heaven. The details as to the type of precious materials used is found in the book of revelation 21 chapter. These are some examples of the type of precious stones/materials, we don't know the exact type of materials that will be used due to the fact so many of the precious stones named have a variety of types, and this adds to the intrigue in terms of how the new temple will look.
" The twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent GLASS (Revelation 21:21)". A large wall is also said to be made of all matter of precious stone and the wall is to be 4 cubic's high. It is written the temple: "Had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Revelation 12:12-14)".
According to Holy scripture the outline put forth is the plan for the earth from the Heavenly Father, on the other hand Satan and his people prepare for what they call the New world order. The backward logic and deception of the Satan's NWO somehow being understood as some "New beginning" is a total falsehood. The New World Order is actually the beginning of the End in terms of the devils reign on the surface of the earth.
The so-called New World Order is actually another label placed on the old Babylonian system of paganism, and idolatry, and those former world ruling nations symbolized by the beast will become strong and live again 3 and half years. This will be a time of great turmoil, trouble, and bloodshed called the great tribulation. Before evil brings total destruction to the earth the Lord will return bringing justice to the earth.
