His Coming and Judgment Day
We cannot expect most men to believe the truth. They remain void of real treasure. Look at Isaiah 59:13-15; Daniel 8:11-13; Matthew 7:14. Satan has overcome the saints and deceived the ministry so that very few people can find what you have an opportunity now to read. Theologians have been taught slanders against the truth by the dragon who has overcome them, Revelation 13:5-7,11. These things are realistic and applicable to our times. I suggest that you, the reader, become astute as a wise student who has found treasure in the field. "Sell all" your past notions on the subjects we present here "and buy" the revelations we point out, and you shall be enriched.
What about the coming of the Lord? First consider what Jesus said in Matthew 24:35-37 and let it be your eyeglasses on this subject. I will say that men of past generations have always felt that the end of time was in their days. (And it was the end of time- only for the men of their generation). Look at Hebrews 1:1-2; I Peter 4:1; I John 2:18. It is not amazing for men today to also think that the end is upon us, for the signs of Peter's time are the same signs we see today!! Ecclesiastes 1:9. Now let me test your scriptural reasoning power. Read the last half of Matthew 28:20. What do you think?
If JESUS IS WITH US NOW... what kind of coming did he mean in statements about the "coming of the son of man" such as Matthew 24:27? We will now look at four different meanings of that multipurpose phrase as we learn from the scriptures.
I. The "coming of Jesus" described in Matthew 25:31 was prophesied in Daniel 7:13-14. You are to carefully notice that IT WAS FULFILLED according to Mark 16:19, and Acts 7:55-56. That was CHRIST'S GLORIOUS RETURN TO HIS THRONE after the crucifixion.
II. What Jesus meant by his "second coming" in a second sense is revealed in the parable in Luke 13:6-9. In this parable HE CAME not only a second time but a third time to EXAMINE the works (fruit) of the man and TO JUDGE him. Observe how the "intercessing" angel in the parable "saved" this man's hide! He fared differently from Nebuchadnezzar, who was a different kind of tree with a different quality of fruit, Daniel 4:10-17. He was spared the ax but Nebuchadnezzar got chopped down, Revelation 22:12.
III. A third meaning of "the coming of the son of man" is in Matthew 25:6-13. This should be of particular interest to you because this is when HE COMES TO TEACH the minds of ready men worthy of receiving his spirit from heaven. Read John 14:21-23; Revelation 3:20, 19:9. It is better to "sup" when he comes than for him to say, "Cut him down! Why waste the ground with him?"
IV. A fourth meaning of "the coming of the son of man" is about you and I. It is our return back to glory as a free and living spirit upon the death of our clay body. For a quick synopsis look at (Psalm 49:20; Acts 10:9-16 meaning men of all degrees of ignorance), Psalm 87; Ecclesiastes 12:7; II Corinthians 5:1-8, and Luke 20:37-38. For a detailed treatise on this view, look at "Thoughts in the Midnight Hour -B in our first book. As you know, many laymen, ministers and theologians think the coming of the Lord will be at the turn of the century. But as Jesus put it, he "will come when they think not and at an hour they are unaware of and "like a thief in the night". I will not belabor the point except to say that he fulfills all those things in meanings II and III.
Now let us consider the Judgment Day. It is based upon meaning II. So keep what you have learned from that section in mind as we go on. Thoughts from this angle opened a door for my entry. I was led to refurbish my understanding of JUDGMENT. Previously, my education shunted me into a plateau of total love, mercy, forgiveness, casting no blame, absolution, no judgment, and even justification of those condemned. That is the finest focus and epitome of God's love. This is the kind of plant and fruit He wants me to be. I am therefore categorized and ranked in His eyesight in my "order of angels". God is still a "God of judgment" although He and Jesus refrain from executing judgment as the scriptures have pointed out, John 5:22, 8:15. (See also "Sons of Gold," in this book). While writing to Mrs. Warden, a reader who prompted this letter, a voice told me I was being "shown" via the scriptures how the JUDGMENT functions. I was given Psalm 149:6-9 to consider and was told that Luke 13:6-9 and its example in Daniel 4:10-17 exemplify the JUDGMENT of the saints, who are the Watchers. Since God and Jesus do not judge, understand well that they have given this activity to the saints, Daniel 7:22. That Psalm text says, "this honor have all the saints... to execute the judgment written," . Therefore, we too "shall judge men and angels", I Corinthians 6:2-3, especially men in the Earth "Valley of Decision," Joel 3:12-14.
I and my order of angels have conducted our Court sessions. We find only demons guilty and we "justify" man, even the condemned. I am with those who stand on a parabolical Mount Gerizim as a blessing, Deuteromony 11:29, 27:12. Another group of angels stand on a parabolic Mount Ebal and do execute judgments in the earth like the kind Nebuchadnezzar experienced. Belshazzar also had his day in Court. See Daniel chapter . As examples of this work, Psalm 2:8-12 and Revelation 2:26-27 are written. Two Chief Priests of the Angelic Priesthood manage this work. They are the Red Spirit or red horse symbol and the Pale or yellow Spirit or the grizzled and bay horses, Revelation 6:4,8, and Zechariah 6:1-7. These "rule on the earth" or "reign on the earth" with "rods of iron" as executing judges, much in the same way as Israel of old was ruled by judges after the time of Joshua. They "allow" devils (symbolized as iron swords, rods, axes, spears, etc., Isaiah 10:5-7,15; Revelation 18:2,24) to "take peace from and kill" and "kill with diseases and animals" those men they oversee. They (the responsible parties) smite clay vessels with "iron rods" (literally knives, automobiles, heavy machinery, bullets, bombs, etc.) and break them into shivers (trembling with fear) in their method of REIGNING OR RULING ON THE EARTH. Six orders of angelic saints rule this earth as executing Judges. Churchmen do not know this and do not realize this is THE JUDGMENT OF GOD turned over to the hands of the saints. Since heaven is the place of that everlasting day, JUDGMENT DAY has been continuous throughout earth's many, many days. Heaven's is a circuit Court for those reviewed in the Outer Court, this earth.
Judging angels are not brutal. They do not touch men, but allow us to suffer at the hands of the very devils we serve and obey who also love to use man against man. The judging saints love their brethren on earth more than I do. To see this, you must consider that every day a harvest of men is collected from the earth-field. "Except a corn of wheat fall to the ground and die, it abides alone, but if it die, it brings forth much fruit" in heaven. By this means the Kingdom of Heaven is built up by men who are removed from this life, Matthew 13:30,37-39; John 12:24; Revelation 14:14-16. God's "barn" is heaven. In another sense using the living parable of how Kings Hiram and Solomon built the Temple, we see Satan and God using their forces to cut out "lively stones" (I Peter 2:5) and "trees of righteousness" (Isaiah 61:3) far from the Temple site for construction purposes. That far away stone quarry and forest is this earth. There is so much love and joy in this harvest!! Psalm 126. These are not "grim reapers". But their demonic "iron" sickles are grim, Isaiah 65:11-15. But for these Judges to use their "iron rods" Michael must be still so the devils can gain the upper hand against man, (Daniel 9:21, 10:12-13,21), Revelation 12:7-8, 16:12. Actually the work of THE JUDGMENT OF GOD is a purposeful blend of love and education to increase and perfect the members of the House of God. We, therefore, acknowledge the Judge Reapers, the Watching Saints on Mount Ebal.
Now let us summarize everything. Since God is the Everlasting Day everything is rolled into "today" both present, past an future. There is no yesterday, or tomorrow just today!! There is no movement of time for Him. Time is something relative only to our world, but it is irrelevant for Heaven. Everyday on earth is Judgment Day for Heaven. Accordingly, we find God judging Israel of old, Ezekiel 5:8-11, 14:20-21. Ezekiel himself was made a "judge" (Ezekiel 22:2) and he along with Jeremiah (Ezekiel 1:10,16,18) were instruments of the angelic "Watchers" who execute Court verdicts, decisions and sentences in the "Valley of Decision," Joel 3:9-15. Villains like Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar were not the only ones who experienced "a day in court", but David also was "sentenced" for his wrong doing, (II Samuel 24:10-17). Another example of "judgment given to the saints" is that of Elijah the prophet-- an executing judge (I Kings 18:19,40). Needless to say "watching" saints above are still executing judgments in our world as they "reign" or rule as judges from above, Hebrews 12:1,22-24; Revelation 2:26-27, 5:9-10. Have we not prayed some powerless prayers (which only served to illustrate our love) against the verdicts of the Court (Ezekiel 14:21) and failed to block the "sentences" for men in our world"? We have prayed not according to the will of God because we were ignorant of what He is doing. If you ask Him not to kill men on earth, you ask Him to stop harvesting wheat!! Notice how "our thoughts were not his thoughts, and our ways not His ways" (Isaiah 55:8-9). Our prayers, too, were not His prayers. Jeremiah and Ezekiel had to be informed of this when they pleaded with God not to thresh wheat (Amos 9:9; Matthew 13:27-39) in their part of the field with His "peculiar" threshing technic. He does "visit the iniquity of the fathers upon the children" as He came to visit Israel as an executing Judge (Jeremiah 9:8-11) on their circuit date. I HAVE LEARNED to pray according to His will... not sending up powerless "please stop... etc." But I admit there are times when 1 could rewrite Lamentations of Jeremiah because of the anguish at what I see, judgmental executions, Deuteronomy 32:39-43; Isaiah 45:6-7; Amos 3:6. So when I tell you God and Christ are reigning or ruling on this earth today in executing righteous judgments, I do know exactly what I am talking about. Jesus came to reign and has been ruling on this earth with saints of previous generations, Isaiah 41:4-5; Malachi 3:17; Revelation 5:9-10, on a day, hour, and in away men have not been aware of. They do it with "iron rods" as executing judges. We must, therefore, readjust our mental picture meaning of Revelation 20:4. What the churches teach and what is commonly accepted, even among us who are "called out", is evidence of a veil upon us when we see that text. Jesus told us that judgment day is a "present" and on-going thing in his days on earth (Matthew 12:43-45; John 12:31). We should have believed him. I have shown that he certainly knew what he was saying. Now all we have to do is read the literature coming our way on "the judgment day" or the "time of Christ's reign" and we can judge it as light or darkness.
