Prayer: Psalms 131:1-3 LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.  (2)  Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.  (3)  Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.

Genesis 1:1-9 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (2) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (3) And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (4) And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. (5) And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. (6) And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. (7) And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. (8) And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Notes:

  • Spirit of God = Angel
  • Light = Day
  • Darkness = Night
  • Evening & Morning = 1 day in time (24 hours)

 

 

There are two bodies of water; the waters above and
below the firmament (black area).

2 Corinthians 12:1-2 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.  (2) I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

 

Notes:

  • Paul didn’t know if Jesus was in the body or a spirit being when he met him.

 

Psalms 148:1-5 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.  (2) Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.  (3) Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.  (4) Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.  (5) Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

 

Deuteronomy 30:1-5 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,  (2) And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;  (3) That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.  (4) If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:  (5) And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.

Notes:

  • Turn thy captivity = Reverse it and set Israel free
  • Heaven = the Earth (1st Heaven)

The Dry Land is surrounded by water.  It consists of 7 Continents:

Asia, North America, South America, Africa, Australia, Europe, and Antarctica

Genesis 1:9-13 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.  (10) And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.  (11) And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.  (12) And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.  (13) And the evening and the morning were the third day.

2 Peter 3:3-7 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, (4) And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. (5) For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: (6) Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: (7) 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.

Genesis 1:14-31 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:  (15) And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.  (16) And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.  (17) And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,  (18) And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.  (19) And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.  (20) And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.  (21) And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.  (22) And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.  (23) And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.  (24) And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.  (25) And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.  (26) And 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 fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  (27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  (28) And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.  (29) And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.  (30) And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.  (31) And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Notes:

  • In the beginning, everyone and everything was vegetarian.  Meat was not on the table because death didn’t exist.
  • Before the creation of MAN, other beings existed on the planet, such as Dinosaurs.

Genesis 2:1-9, 16-17 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.  (2) And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  (3) And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.  (4) These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,  (5) And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.  (6) But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.  (7) And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.  (8) And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.  (9) And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:  (17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Notes:

  • Dust + Breath = Living Soul
  • Tree of Life = Jesus
  • Tree of the knowledge of good & evil = Satan
  • 7th day = From sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday

Genesis 3:1-13 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?  (2) And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:  (3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.  (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:  (5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.  (6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.  (7) And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.  (8) And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.  (9) And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?  (10) And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.  (11) And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?  (12) And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.  (13) And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Notes:

  • Eve was deceived, not Adam.
  • Satan’s first lie = Ye shall not surely die
  • Adam and Eve ate (listened to) the fruit of lies (from Satan), not an apple.

 

Hosea 10:13 Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.

 

Genesis 3:16-24  Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  (17) And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;  (18) Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;  (19) In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.  (20) And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.  (21) Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.  (22) And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:  (23) Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.  (24) So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Notes:

  • The first thing that died because of sin was the animals God killed to make clothing for Adam and Eve to cover themselves.
  • All men are supposed to work to take care of their families.
  • Adam & Eve died physically (returned to the dust), not spiritually.
  • A day to God is 1000 years.  Neither Adam nor Eve lived to be 1000 years old, thus they died the same day (before the 1000 years ended).

1 Corinthians 10:20-21  But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.  (21)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

Notes:

  • Gentiles = White people/Europeans
  • Devils = fallen angels
  • Fellowship = associate with

 

Psalms 82:1-2, 5-7 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.  (2)  How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.  5  They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course   (6) I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.  (7)  But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

Notes:

  • Congregation of the mighty = Israel
  • Gods = Israel & the rest of the sons of Adam
  • Out of course = out of natural order, going the wrong way
  • Princes = Angels
  • Death was not supposed to exist and only came about due to sin.

 

 

John 6:47-52, 60-63, 67-68 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.  (48) I am that bread of life.  (49) Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.  (50) This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.  (51) I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.  (52) The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? 60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?  (61) When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?  (62) What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?  (63) It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. 67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?  (68) Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

Notes:

  • Eat my flesh & drink my blood = READ MY WORD
  • Last day = The day Jesus returns/7th day
  • Quickeneth = to make alive
  • The Word of God is LIFE!

Psalms 99:1 The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

Genesis 6:1-3 5-8, 13-14, 17-22 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, (2)  That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.  (3)  And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.   5  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  (6) And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.  (7) And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.  (8) But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.  (14) Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.  (18) But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.  (19) And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.  (20) Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.  (21) And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.  (22) Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

Notes:

  • Sons of God = Seth’s sons
  • Daughters of men = Cain’s daughters
  • My Spirit = Word of God
  • Breath of life = the Spirit in our nostrils (the air that we breathe)

Genesis 7:1-5, 10-13, 19-24 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.  (2) Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.  (3) Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.  (4) For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.  (5) And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. 10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.  (11) In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.  (12) And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.  (13) In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.  (20) Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.  (21) And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:  (22) All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.  (23) And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.  (24) And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

Notes:

  • Clean beasts were taken by 7’s, which would equal 14 Clean beasts (7 males & 7 females)
  • Unclean beasts were taken by 2’s, which would equal 4 Unclean beasts (2 males & 2 females)
  • Fountains of the great deep & windows of heaven = the waters above and below covered the earth

Rhinocerous Unicornous (One Horn), not a 1 horn horse.

Genesis 8:1, 13, 18-22  And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged;  13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry. 18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him: (19) Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.  (20) And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.  (21) And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.  (22) While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Genesis 9:1-5 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.  (2) And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.  (3) Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.  (4) But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.  (5) And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.

Notes:

  • God put meat on the table for man to consume.  The peace between Man and Beast ended.

 

Genesis 5:1-5 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; (2) Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.  (3) And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:  (4) And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:  (5) And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.

Notes:

  • God called their name ADAM because Eve was still inside Adam (as one of his ribs).  Adam called her Eve because she is the mother of all living.

 

2 Peter 3:8 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.

Notes:

  • Adam didn’t live to be a thousand years old.  No other man has either.  The oldest man was Methuselah; he lived to be 969 years old.
  • The other man, Enoch didn’t see death, he was translated (transformed into a spirit being) by God at the age of 365 years old.  He didn’t live as man a thousand years.  Enoch is still around to this day.

Leviticus 23:1-3 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  (2) Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.  (3) Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.

Notes:

  • Convocation = gathering
  • Sabbath = 7th day (Day of Rest)

Psalms 95:6-11 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.  (7) For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice, (8) Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:  (9) When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.  (10) Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:  (11) Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

Notes:

  • Hear his (Jesus) voice = hear his word
  • My Rest = 1000 years of peace

 

Hebrews 4:1-11 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.  (2) For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.  (3) For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.  (4) For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.  (5) And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.  (6) Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:  (7) Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.  (8) For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.  (9) There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.  (10) For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.  (11) Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Notes:

  • Jesus’ day of rest is in the future.  It begins when he makes his 2nd coming.
  • Harden = Refuse to believe
  • Hearts = Minds

Psalms 132:4-14 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,  (5) Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.  (6) Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.  (7) We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.  (8) Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength. (9)  Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.  (10)  For thy servant David’s sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.  (11)  The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.  (12) If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.  (13) For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.  (14) This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

Notes:

  • Ephratah = Children of Israel
  • Zion = Jerusalem, Israel (the City of David)
  • Thy anointed/fruit of David’s body = JESUS
    • His desire is to dwell on the earth.

Revelation 20:1-6 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.  (2) And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, (3) And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.  (4) And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  (5) But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.  (6) Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Notes:

  • Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit during Jesus’ day of rest (1000 years)
  • A little season = the time given Satan to try the people still living at the end of the day of rest.
  • The people who refused the mark of the beast during the great tribulation will reign with Jesus a 1000 years.  It is the Word of God that delivers us.  Read it and pay attention so you can act when necessary.
  • Second Death = Lake of Fire

1 Corinthians 15:21-28, 49-54 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. (22) For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. (23) But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.  (24)  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.  (25) For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.  (26) The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.  (27) For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.  (28) And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.  49  And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.  (50) Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.  (51) Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  (52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  (53) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  (54) 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.

Notes:

  • Man = Adam & Jesus (flesh & blood)
  • Adam sinned and brought death into existence.
    • Death did not exist until Adam & Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden.
    • Jesus put death on the table because of sin and he will take it off the table at the time appointed.
  • Jesus didn’t sin and brought the resurrection of the dead by dying and rising from the grave.
    • Jesus is the only one who was a fully developed Spirit that became man & then became Spirit again.
      He died for our sins and rose from the dead to live forever.
  • Once all things are subdued, Jesus, along with the rest of us will be subject unto the Father.
  • Bear = to carry, put up with, tolerate
  • Last trump = 7th trumpet
  • Death is an interruption of life.  If you exist you will live forever, either in the kingdom of God (the Good side) or the Lake of fire (the Bad side of the kingdom of God).
  • When we become immortals in the first or second resurrections we will be after God’s kind: Spirit.

Deuteronomy 32:8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.

Notes:

  • Bounds = limits, the beginning and ending of something
    • 12 months in a year, 12 apostles, 12 hours of day, 12 hours of night

Additional Verses:

Revelation 12:7-9 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,  (8) And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.  (9) And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Nehemiah 1:8-9 Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:  (9) But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.

Notes:

  • The uttermost part of heaven = Earth

Exodus 25:1-2, 8, 17-18, 22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  (2) Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering. 8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. 17 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.  (18) And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. 22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

Psalms 90:1-4 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.  (2) Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.  (3) Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.  (4) For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

Psalms 102:1, 25-27 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee. 25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.  (26) They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:  (27) But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

Psalms 104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

2 Samuel 6:2 And David arose, and went with all the people that were with him from Baale of Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God, whose name is called by the name of the LORD of hosts that dwelleth between the cherubims.

Psalms 80:1  Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

Isaiah 55:1-3 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.  (2) Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.  (3) Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

2 Peter 3:10-12 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.  (11) Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,  (12) 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?

Matthew 25:31-34 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:  (32) And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:  (33) And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  (34)  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Notes:

  • The throne of the his glory = David’s throne
  • Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world = New Jerusalem
  • It was ready for MAN but MAN was not ready for it.  Rather than killing Adam & Eve and staring over, God gave Mankind 7 days to get it together and seek salvation.
