Angels: Created With Free Will

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels, Creation with tags , , , , , , , on June 29, 2019 by paulthepoke

aggelos/ἄγγελος: In the Greek, an angel or messenger, generally a supernatural messenger from God conveying news or behests from God to men.

malak: In the Hebrew, a messenger. -Strong’s Concordance

What does the Bible have to say about Angels? God’s word does not give an account about how angels were created. The Bible does not say when angels were created. But we do know that angels were created before the universe and humanity. 

Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 

The context of this verse is a line of questioning directed to Job by God. Job is being asked if he was present prior to the creation of the world. God is explaining to Job that He laid the foundation and measured it out. Then God informs Job that the “morning stars” and the “sons of God” observed this event, sang, and shouted. “Sons of God” is an idiomatic expression for angels in the Old Testament. “Morning stars” is a term for angels. These beings saw God create the earth.

We do know that God, specifically Christ, created the angels.

Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.

Psalm 148:2, 5 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded and they were created.

In comparing angels to resurrected humanity, Jesus tells us that angels are immortal and they do not marry. Apparently, marriage is not intended in God’s program for angels.

Luke 20:35-36. But those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; for they cannot even die anymore, because they are like angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

Psalm 148:6 He has also established them (angels and host) forever and ever; He has made a decree which will not pass away.

Matthew 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

There are two groups of angels, the elect and those fallen. There are those elect angels who follow God the Father and Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 5:21 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of His chosen angels, to maintain these principles without bias, doing nothing in a spirit of partiality.

1 Kings 22:19 Micaiah said, “Therefore, hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left.

Psalm 103:2 Bless the LORD, you His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His word, obeying the voice of His word!

The fallen angels are those who are evil and follow Satan. Of the fallen angels, there are two groups. Some of the fallen are incarcerated. 

2 Peter 2:4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment… 

Some of the fallen angels are currently loose and free. These angels are currently under the leadership of Satan.

Revelation 12:7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back.

Granted the book of Jasher is an extra Biblical source, but there is an interesting note in regards to the ratio of fallen angels who are incarcerated and those who are not. Noah made the following comment when praying to God about angels and demons. These comments indicated 90% are bound and only 10% are free to maneuver under the will of Satan.

Jasher, Book of Jubilees 10: 9, 11 And He said: Let the tenth part of them remain before him, and let nine parts descend into the place of condemnation.’ And we did according to all His words: all the malignant evil ones we bound in the place of condemnation and a tenth part of them we left that they might be subject before Satan on the earth.

Angels will ultimately be judged by humanity.

1 Corinthians 6:3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?

Humanity was not created to go to a fiery end. Man was originally created perfect and eternal. Hell was designed for fallen angels. These are the words of Jesus Himself.

Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels…'”

Taurus, A Charging Bull… Phil Kulis

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Creation, Phil Kulis, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars... with tags , , , on April 24, 2019 by paulthepoke

Taurus – His Glorious Coming Will Be Like a Charging Bull

Main star
– Al Deberan = the Governor

Orion, Coming forth as Light (Note Orion is a decan constellation)

Main stars
– Betelgeuse = The Coming of the Branch
– Rigel = The Foot that Crushes
– Bellatrix = Quickly Coming, Swiftly Destroying

Stellarium

Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

Revelation 19:11-16

Scorpio, the Scorpion… Phil Kulis

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Creation, Phil Kulis, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars... with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 27, 2019 by paulthepoke

Scorpio, the Scorpion. 
Main star = Antares “the wounding” at the head of the scorpion.

Stellarium

Genesis 3:15 “He shall bruise your head and you shall bruise His heel.”

A decan constellation Ophiuchus, the serpent holder is depicted as having his foot on the head or back of the scorpion.

The star Antares is the head of Scorpio and at the foot of Ophiuchus.

Stellarium

1 Samuel 17:54 Then David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem, but he put his weapons in his tent.

A seed of the woman in the line of the Messiah (David) bruised the head of the seed of the serpent (Goliath). David then took Goliath’s head to Jerusalem.

John 19:17 They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.

Jesus was crucified at Golgotha (GOLiath was from GATH) “the place of the skull” where His heel was bruised with a nail through the foot.

Straight Talk, Creation v. Random Chance… Rodna Epley

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Francis Crick (Scientist, Biologist, Physiologist and outspoken Atheist (1916-2004) who is credited with co-discovering, along with James Watson, the double-helix structure of the DNA strand, made the following statement.

“Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved.”

Really? A Darwinistic Evolutionist telling the science community that they must constantly remind themselves that the things they see are not created but have evolved. So why do scientists purposefully go against what common sense tells us is true about life? Everything that has life in it reveals that only a Designer could make such complex mechanical systems.

Reminds me of what Paul the Apostle once said a couple thousand years ago…

Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

And what the said Apostle John about Jesus…

John 1:3-4 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

How about atheistic scientists stop reminding themselves to continually hold a presuppositional view that is philosophical in nature and stubbornly wants to deny God. The evidence continually reveals a Designer in literally everything living that is studied under a microscope or in a lab!

Who can watch this video and still believe there’s no Designer behind life? Randomness didn’t create the complexities of life. Randomness could create nothing but chaos.

Aquarius, The Man Carrying the Water… Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Creation, Phil Kulis, Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars... with tags , , , , , on November 24, 2018 by paulthepoke

The constellation Aquarius, the man carrying the water.

The names of the main stars and the meaning of their names:

– Sadalmelik = the Record of the pouring out
– Sadalsuud = He who pours out
– Sheat = Who goes and returns

Aquarius

The prophecy of the water-man Aquarius in the Bible.

Luke 22:7-13
Then came the Day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover must be killed. And He sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat.” So they said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare?” And He said to them, “Behold, when you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house which he enters. Then you shall say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”‘ Then he will show you a large, furnished upper room; there make ready.” So they went and found it just as He had said to them, and they prepared the Passover.

Following Aquarius we go into the house of the Master and have dinner with the Teacher.

Adam & the Fall of Man… Phil Kulis

Posted in Creation, Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2018 by paulthepoke

PhilKulis PicGenesis 3:6-7 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.

Notice something? Adam and Eve’s eyes were opened at the same time even though Eve ate first.

The command to not eat wasn’t given to Eve. It was given to Adam before Eve was created.

Genesis 2:17-18 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.”

Eve didn’t disobey a command from God because God didn’t give the command to Eve. Neither was there a command “nor shall you touch it” from God.

Eve’s eyes were opened when Adam disobeyed. Until he ate she was justified by his obedience even though she had sinned.

 

Jesus cross sun

The Second Adam, Jesus Christ, was obedient to God even until death on a cross. Therefore, His bride the Church is justified by His righteousness in obedience even though the bride has sinned.

It’s not about your unrighteousness because of disobedience, you’re doomed. It’s about His righteousness because of obedience. In Him, we have grace and mercy.

Her sin would be addressed same as the Church’s sin is addressed in Christ.

Sadly, mankind has blamed Eve all this time. The fall of Man was Adam’s fault.

Romans 5:12-21 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned, for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.

But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

In the Beginning…

The following is from Rabbi Mordechai Persoff‏, Educational Director of the Temple Institute. He is one of the top Rabbinical scholars in the world. This is a reflection of Jewish thought as we approach God’s Fall Appointments as noted in the Mosaic Law.

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 

WorldCreationDay

EVERYTHING We See In The Universe Began Right Here At The Temple Mount In Jerusalem! Based On Our Jewish Understanding Of The Bible, The Creation Account All Started In Israel, On The Temple Mount, Early In The Autumn, On The 25th Day Of The Bible Month Of Ellul, To Be Exact. Yes, The Creation Of The Entire Universe All Started There! In Ancient Times This Holy Place Was Called Mount Moriah.

One Day Soon, The Third Jewish Temple Will Be Rebuilt, Right Here, On The Very Spot Where All The Universe Was Created! And This Glorious House Of God, In Jerusalem, Is Destined To Become A House Of Prayer For All Nations!

The Jewish People Were Taught By G-D That The Very Foundation Stone-Even Shtila – Of The Whole Magnificent Universe Is Located On Mount Moriah, In Jerusalem. So, This Is Where It All Started! Baruch HaShem! Blessed Be G-D’s Holy Name!

Later, At This Same Place, Here In Jerusalem, G-D Also Created Adam And Eve! After That He Placed Them In A Beautiful Garden Of Paradise. Which Is Another Whole Story. BUT, Suffice It To Say, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US Here On Earth, Every Jew And Every Gentile, All Of Us Came From OUR COMMON ANCESTORS, Which The Bible Calls Adam And Eve. We All Started Our Journey From The Foundation Stone!

Who Is This Wonderful Creator Of Us All? What Is His Name? According To The Bible, His Name Is Simply “HaShem” Or, When Spelled Out In Hebrew, Just 4 Holy Letters, Yod-Hay-Vov-Hay! This Wonderful Name Of The One Creator Of Us ALL, Is Found Throughout The Holy Bible. He Is Also Known As The Mighty G-D Of Israel!

Dear Friends, The ONLY REASON That Any Of Us Are Here Today On This Beautiful Earth Is Because HaShem Willed It, Hashem, Who Created Us All!

TempleCoin

By G-D’s Help, The Plan Is To Have A Celebration Like This Every Year In Jerusalem From Now Until The Wonderful Time When The Glorious Third Jewish Temple Will Be Rebuilt!

Here Is What Israel’s Sanhedrin Decrees Now To All The People On Earth! It Is Time To WAKE UP In The Spiritual Sense. The Bible Prophecies Are All True And They Will All Soon Be All Coming To Pass! Just 70 Years Ago, The Dry Bones Of Ezekiel Chapter 37 Began To Come Alive Again! The Jewish People Miraculously Returned To Israel And Began Building Up Their Ancient Homeland. Israel Today Is Alive And Well, HALLELUJAH! But, The Best Days For The Jewish People And For All Who Will Choose To Love Israel And The Jewish People, Are Still Ahead!

Rosh Hashana, The Jewish New Year, Marks The Beginning Of The Fall Season Here In Israel, In The Holy Land. G-D Taught The Jewish People To Show Reverence And Thanksgiving To HaShem, Our King And Holy Creator, At That Time. This Beautiful Bible Holiday Is Always Celebrated 6 Days After “World Creation Day” On The Biblical Calendar.  The Jewish Sages Taught Us That Rosh Hashana Is Also When HaShem Judges ALL Of His Creation! Not Just The Jewish People, But All Of Us!
