Quick post on the Messianic pre fall restoration. The lion will lay down with the lamb. there was a time when there was no violence between animals or between men nor between men and animals. See genesis where all the animals were brought before Adam and he named them. The messiah returns dominion over the earth and the kingdoms of the earth to mankind, after Adam had given it up (instead of letting Eve catch the full impact of her transgression). This is also how we inherit sin and indeed death as well, from Adam. Thanks buddy.
Ultimately we give up dominion to the enemy. He cannot take it from us, but he can usurp it from us. “So called ruling from behind the throne”. The enemy tempts us, entices us and deceives us, he cannot blatantly take from us.
When you have righteous kings or judges over a nation then the nation can receive the full blessings of God.
But when we abdicate dominion, for example in the Kingdoms of men, the enemy can rule, through sin. Think sinful rulers etc.
This was part of what the restoration of the fall includes, that which Jesus came to restore in us. It will culminate in fruition upon his second and final return.. soon to come.
Praise the Lord Christ Jesus!
What it is & a bit about why its important
The mark of the beast is placed on one who has bought into the grand delusion put forth by the ancient enemy and the rest of the forsaken. So one who has bought into worshipping that image, that blasphemy, bears its mark. And they will not be saved. They will never repent and they are going to the place that their hearts are already full of.. nothingness. So the hand wringing and whatnot, the big ordeal made about this within the legit Red Letter Christian circles can be put to rest.
Its the deception, stupid.
It’s the grand delusion that we should be eyes wide open and have our mind on God, alpha to omega, lest even a number of the Elect might be deceived by its cunning. Let no man, nor malevolent interdimensional entity, deceive you. Nor let them foster selfdeception in you. Self -deception cannot be recovered from. It is the gaping maw of the bottomless pit. How can you be liberated from a deception of your own making? Besides God sovereignly delivering you, but he wont do it against your will.
What should you do to prepare?
A lack of a real and ongoing relationship with the Creator that will be the downfall of certain of the Elect. If it is Gods’ will. Those without the closeness of the Lord will not receive his knowledge and wisdom fast enough, if at all (you might be lukewarm). I was born into a relationship with the Lord, it is natural to me, and so i may not be the best one to explain how to go about cultivating this from 0.. ill let other louder voices than mine rant about it
Be that agent of the Lord such that his light radiates from you such that a mere glance will sear the fallen and they will writhe in agony at the very sight of it. And yet you will be as a beacon brightly lit so that all those who seek the Lord and salvation through his Son shall find it. Stay safe and keep your mind on God always.
