-Going back in time-

Written by: Leith Lyman Cunningham, on 6/27/2017

Suppose we jump into our time machine and travel back a few thousand, million, billion or trillion years ago. At some point, we would find God alone, since He has always existed. He would be contemplating and working out His purpose and plans for the future of our world and the universe. Formulating His purpose and plan for you and me to come onto the scene, and to eventually become an immortal, spirit being like unto Himself and His Christ that was to come out from Himself, to be the fore-runner of the God family here on earth. In reality, as far-fetched as it may sound, the plan and purpose of God is, was and always has been, to reproduce Himself, first in Jesus Christ, then in all the rest of mankind that Christ would create, and establish upon the earth.

Romans 8:29 - 30 29 For those whom he foreknew (since we all came out from Him, He foreknew us all, prior to being born here on earth) he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, (To be like Christ in every way) in order that He (Christ) might be the firstborn among many brothers) 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. All have been predestinated, all will have been called, all will have been justified, and all will will be glorified, made like Christ.

A very short thumb-nail sketch below, would go something like this in my imagination and as the scriptures imply it to be.

First God the Father, known as the Omniparus or Omniparient One, out of which everything in existence throughout all time and space would come into existence, by-way of His Son. Again! Out from God the Father, through His Son. So then, His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, created everything other than His Father whom has always existed. Through the Son comes everything else in existence. There is nothing at all in existence with the exception of God the Father, that Jesus Christ did not create.

John 1:1-3 The Word (Christ) Became Flesh. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. God the Father will always be the ultimate authority of all things. He has established Himself head of His family, known as "The God Family" forever.

At the appropriate time, according to the purpose and plan of God, knowing Their plan was to create and populate the world with human beings made in Their own image and Their own likeness. (Genesis 1:26) Let Us make man in our image, after Our likeness. (The Father and His Son Jesus Christ) Well aware also that these future gods made in Their image and likeness, but in their initial stage as flesh beings would sin and have to be disposed of, or another entity greater than all of them combined, would be required to come forth and die in their stead. It was the only way that the effects of sin upon the world and in mankind, could be brought under control and finally eliminated altogether.

To die to free all of mankind from the wages of sin, there-by allowing them all entry into the Kingdom of God, within His time segment laid out in His Word, before the world began. (Titus 1:2) God, who cannot lie, promised eternal life before the world began. That is the exact reason and purpose that Christ was sent to earth to be born of a woman. He had to divest Himself of His immortal, spirit realm received from His Father, to become a physical, flesh person like as to all the rest of humanity. He had been given the ability to sin like all of mankind, but to succeed, it meant He had to resist it until death, He did that!

He had to resist the pull of the flesh, He had to resist the influence of Satan and overcome the human nature placed within in Him as a physical human being. His 30 plus years of life as a flesh and blood person, required all of the Satan influenced and evil temptations of life that all of man and woman kind have had to endure since time began. Jesus Christ to be our Savior had to overcome it completely. To be born, live His life here on earth without ever sinning even once, He qualified Himself to fulfill and achieve His God given work for that express purpose.

He became whom His Father had brought Him into existence for and dedicated Him to be. The Savior of the world, the whole world. The Savior of all mankind and in truth and fact, the Savior of all of the creation that He had brought into existence. Not a make believe, not a partial, not an almost Savior that could save only a small hand full of so called good church attending, so called Christian people. As orthodox Christianity believes and teaches their convert to accept and to believe as the truth of God. Jesus Christ has paid the cost, the price was tremendous. He willingly suffered the excruciating painful death of crucifixion for all of our sins. For yours, for mine and everyone who has ever lived on this earth. Jesus Christ is a Savior, what does a s Savior do my brothers and sisters in Christ? He Saves!

I have a friend and acquaintance that is in the potato growing business. He is a potato farmer in our locality. My wife and myself often meet himself and his wife in the Big Boy restaurant in Kalkaska, Michigan at breakfast or lunch time. His family of potato growers themselves, son and daughter in law, meet there as well. They wear jackets advertising and pointing out the business that they are in, they are potato farmers, they grow and supply the world with potatoes. It is abundantly obvious without even asking what they do, they are potato farmers. What does a potato farmer do? They raise potatoes. Why is it that so many folks identifying themselves as Christians, refuse to believe that Jesus Christ cannot or will not do as He has promised to do. He was appointed by God His Father to be a Savior. Now again! What does a Savior do? He Saves. His Father God has not left any room for Him to fail. 

Christ is in the growing and raising business as well. He is in the business of growing and raising His carnal, fleshly and currently sinning brothers and sister, up to His own level of immortal, spirit life. To recognize and do away with sin in our own lives. To have life like God and Christ have life.To reconcile all things back to God the Father who then becomes all in all.

Neither God the Father nor His Son Jesus Christ would ever at any point, have thrown up their hands in defeat and announced it was just too demanding, too hard, too difficult and bothersome to continue on in dealing with a bunch of corrupt, self-serving, ego maniacs hell bent on destroying themselves in every single way the human race has gone down through the years. For God to quit and have done that, would have made Him, God the father a failure and His Son Jesus Christ known as a fake and a failure too. A laughing stock to make fun of that couldn’t quite get the job done. Forever known and being referred to as “Christ the loser”. Let’s get real here folks, can we not see just how far away from the truth of God, that Satan has led the people of God? Jesus Christ is the Savior of all of His creation. He will not fail, for which we all should thank our Almighty God for.

He will save all of creation, and reconcile all things back to God the Father, where God then will be all in all(Which by the way, God being all in all does not leave one individual ever to be lost) (Col. 1: 20-25)“And through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant" Colossians 1:20-25

Jesus Christ in becoming our Savior, having completed that task in total, as required, set in motion the most awesome, magnificent and wonderful spiritual miracle ever to be known by mankind. God devised a method where-by the spirit and physical would be able to mesh into one. Where a physical person would be meta-morphed into the spirit realm. Human beings like the ugly worm like creatures they can become through their own evil efforts that go contrary to the Word and way of God and Jesus Christ, can and will in the twinkle of an eye, be morphed into beautiful God like beings themselves. All within the well thought out and put into effect, the purpose and plan of God before the world began.

As Christ has made what appears to us, as an ugly worm type insect, that suddenly morphs automatically into the most beautiful, colorful, fragile but magnificent creation imaginable, such as the butterfly, so will all of mankind become within the purpose and plan of God. The plan and purpose of God before the world began would at that exact moment in time, come to its final conclusion at the resurrections talked about in the Word of God. The elect or first-fruits of God at the first resurrection, changed from physical and fleshly, to immortal spirit being like Jesus Christ. To rule and reign with Him, right here on earth, for the next thousand years.

The rest of the dead lived not again for a thousand years. All of the great masses of humanity that ever lived to be resurrected at the 2nd resurrection, known too as the great white judgment. The resurrections then are sort of a reverse metamorphic trip that has taken one out of a spiritual realm from which they came, coming out from God as it were. He breathed the breath of physical life within all of humanity at birth and they became a living soul. (a physical person) Then at death the spirit that God has given, returns to Him, to be absorbed back into Himself, waiting on the resurrections of the physical dead. To be installed back into their original state of immortal, spirit essence within God. 

Unlike corruptible, physical mankind that wishes and wants things to happen a certain way, but cannot always bring it about in the physical realm. Whatever God wishes or wants, is already as good as having been done. Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, 'My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure'; Isaiah 46:10. The good pleasure of God is to reproduce Himself in mankind, it is right on perfect track. Notice too, another scripture in 2nd Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some count slackness; but is long suffering to you-ward, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance

Pretend to yourself, that you as a sincere Christian have never been inside a church in your life. No deceived minister of Satan masquerading themselves as angels of light, have ever had access to your heart, mind and reasoning. But somehow, because it is a commonly accepted given, brought into the world by the deceived teachings of the Babylon of confusion, that most all of mankind will ultimately end up spending an eternity in hell. At that point, you stumble onto the two scriptures above, coming from the mouth of God, and you then read them for yourself. Would you, or would you not have a giant spiritual awakening and be able then to separate the truth from spiritual fiction? If you answered yes, you my friend are in a good place, and the words of Christ in Mark 12:33-34 would apply to you.

-The Greatest commandment-

Mark 12: 33 and to love Him with all your heart and with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself, which is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 When Jesus saw that the man had answered wisely, He said" "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And no one dared to question Him further. 

I have been taught by Christ Himself, through and by His revealed Word. He has enlightened me by revealing the reason that He does everything that He does. Feel free to take notes if you like. “God does everything that He does, because He is God and it suits and serves His purpose to do it that way”.
