The Celestial Earth

 

Of all the planets in our solar system only Earth pears to be inhabitable. It fills the measure of creation. Earth is bringing forth men on it who have been created for this system. It is old and dying, therefore it shall be resurrected just as man dies and is resurrected to immortality, never to die again. Because it fulfilled its celestial destiny, (the purpose for which it was created), the celestial beings it has brought forth shall inherit it in eternity. Those who will not abide the celestial laws will be sent other places. People who will not live celestial laws have brought the earth to ruin by bloodshed, wickedness and pollution.

This understanding came from D.C. 85:6a, August 9, 1997 in the early morning hours as I read my daily scripture reading.

 

"And again, verily I say unto you, The earth abideth the law of a celestial kingdom, for it filleth the measure of its creation, and transgresseth not the law. Wherefore, it shall be sanctified; yea, notwithstanding it shall die, it shall be quickened again, and shall abide the power by which it is quickened, and the righteous shall inherit it: for, notwithstanding they die, they also shall rise again a spiritual body: they who are of a celestial spirit shall receive the same body, which was a natural body, even ye shall receive your bodies, and your glory shall be that glory by which your bodies are quickened.

  • Ye who are quickened by a portion of the celestial glory, shall then receive of the same, even a fullness:

  • and they who are quickened by a portion of the terrestrial glory, shall then receive of the same, even a fullness:

  • and also they who are quickened by a portion of the telestial glory, shall then receive of the same, even a fullness:

  • and they who remain shall also be quickened; nevertheless, they shall return again to their own place, to enjoy that which they are willing to receive, because they were not willing to enjoy that which they might have received."

God Does Not Cast Pearls

""For what doth it profit a man if a gift is bestowed upon him an he receive not the gift? Behold, he rejoices not in that which is given unto him, neither rejoices in him who is the giver of the gift." Vs. 7

"That which is governed by law, is also preserved by law, and perfected and sanctified by the same.

That which breaketh a law, and abideth not by law, but seeketh to become a law unto itself, and willeth to abide in sin, and altogether abideth in sin, can not be sanctified by law, neither by mercy, justice, or judgment; therefore, they must remain filthy still" Vs. 8

What's Out There In The Universe?

 

Every kingdom has laws, bounds, and conditions, and all beings who abide not in those conditions, are not justified; they will be brought to judgment by God, their Father.

"All kingdoms have a law given: and there are many kingdoms; for there is no space in which there is no kingdom; and there is no kingdom in which there is no space, either a greater or lesser kingdom. And unto every kingdom is given a law; and unto every law there are certain bounds also, and conditions.

"All beings who abide not in those conditions, are not justified; for intelligence cleaveth unto intelligence; wisdom receiveth wisdom; truth embraceth truth; virtue loveth virtue; light cleaveth unto light; mercy hath compassion on mercy, and claimeth her own; justice continueth its course, and claimeth its own judgment goeth before the face of him who sitteth upon the throne, and governeth and executeth all things:

God Is In Total Control

"He comprehendeth all things, and all things are before Him and all things are round about Him; and He is above all things, and in all things, and is through all things, and is round about all things, and all things are by Him, and of Him; even God, forever and ever."

The Universe Has Laws Given By God Which Are Unchangeable

"And again, verily I say unto you, He hath given a law unto all things by which they move in their times, and their seasons; and their courses are fixed; even the courses of the heavens, and the earth; which comprehend the earth and all the planets;"

Time Measured Only To Man

"And they give light to each other in their times, and in their seasons, in their minutes, in their hours, in their days, in their weeks, in their months, in their years: all these are one year with God, but not with man. The earth rolls upon her wings; and the sun giveth his light by day, and the moon giveth her light by night; and the stars also giveth their light, as they roll upon their wings, in their glory, in the midst of the power of God."

God Sent Jesus Into This Dark World

"Unto what shall I liken these kingdoms, that ye may understand? Behold, all these are kingdoms, and any man who hath seen any or the least of these, hath seen God moving in His majesty and power. I say unto you, he hath seen Him: nevertheless, He who came unto His own was not comprehended. . The light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not; nevertheless, the day shall come when you shall comprehend even God; being quickened in Him, and by Him. Then shall ye know that he have seen Me, that I am, and that I am the true light that is in you, and the you are in Me, otherwise ye could not abound." vs. 12

This Solar System Is Example of Others

"Behold, I will liken these kingdoms unto a man having a field, and he sent fort his servants into the field, to dig in the field; and he said unto the first, 'Go ye and labor in the field, and in the first hour I will come unto you, and ye shall behold the joy of my countenance': and He said unto the second, 'Go ye also into the field, and in the second hour I will visit you with the joy of My countenance'; and also unto the third, saying, 'I will visit you'; and unto the fourth, and so on unto the twelfth.

And the lord of the field went unto the first in the first hour, and tarried with him all that hour, and he was made glad with the light of the countenance of his lord; and then he withdrew from the first that he might visit the second also, and the third, and the fourth, and so on unto the twelfth; and thus they all received the light of the countenance of their lord; every man in his hour, and in his time; and in his season; beginning at the first, and so on unto the last, and from the last unto the first, and from the first unto the last; every man in his own order, until his hour was finished, even according as his lord had commanded him,' [WHY?] that his lord might be glorified in him, and he in him, that they all might be glorified.

Therefore, unto this parable will I liken all these kingdoms, and the inhabitants thereof; every kingdom in its hour, and in its time, and in its season; even according to the decree which God hath made. And again, verily I say unto you, My friends, I leave these sayings with you to ponder in your hearts with this commandment which I give unto you, that ye shall call upon Me while I am near;

  • b. draw near unto Me, and I will draw near unto you;

  • c. seek me diligently and ye shall find me;

  • d. ask and ye shall receive;

  • e. knock and it shall be opened unto you;

  • f. whatsoever ye ask the Father in My name it shall be given unto you, that is expedient for you; and if ye ask anything that is not expedient for you, it shall turn unto your condemnation.

His Counsel:

If your eye be single to My glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you, and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things.

What To Do

Sanctify yourselves that your minds become single to God and the days will come that you will see Him: for He will unveil His face unto you, and it shall be in His own time and in His own way, and according to His own will.

  • cast away your idle thoughts and your excess of laughter far from you:

  • assemble, organize, prepare, sanctify, "purify your hearts, and cleanse your hands and your feet before me, that I may make you clean; that I may testify unto your Father, and your God, and My God, that you are clean from the blood of this wicked generation, that I may fulfill this promise, this great and last promise which I have m

  • Continue in prayer and fasting from this time forth.

  • Teach one another the doctrine of the kingdom; teach ye diligently and My grace shall attend you, that you may be instructed more perfectly in theory, in principle, in doctrine, in the law of the gospel, in all things that pertain unto the kingdom of God, that is expedient for you to understand:

  • Creation: of things both in heaven, and in earth, and under the earth;

  • History past, present and future: things which have been; things which are; things which must shortly come to pass;

  • Domestic life: things which are at home; things which are abroad;

  • War and intrigues: the wars and the perplexities of the nations;

  • Prophecy: and the judgments which are on the land;

  • Countries, governments, religions: and a knowledge also of countries, and of kingdoms, that ye may be prepared in all things when I shall send you again, to magnify the calling whereunto I have called you, and the mission with which I have commissioned you.

What Is That Mission?

"Behold, I sent you out to testify and warn the people, and it becometh every man who hath been warned, to warn his neighbor; therefore, they are left without excuse, and their sins are upon their own heads."

Stay Clean From The Sins Of The World - Earth Coming to Judgment

"Abide in the liberty wherewith ye are made free; entangle not yourselves in sin, but let your hands be clean, until the Lord come, for not many days hence and the earth shall tremble, and reel to and fro as a drunken man, and the sun shall hide his face, and shall refuse to give light, and the moon shall be bathed in blood and the stars shall become exceeding angry, and shall cast themselves down as a fig that falleth from off a fig tree." vs. 24

Earth Convulsing In Death

All things shall be in commotion--

A last warning to people on earth: "angels shall fly through the midst of heaven, crying with a loud voice, sounding the trump of God, saying, 'Prepare ye, prepare ye, O inhabitants of the earth, for the judgment of our God is come: behold, and lo, the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him.'

A great sign shall appear in heaven and all people shall see it together, an angel shall sound his trump saying the great church (Roman Catholic Church) the mother of abominations, ...is bound in bundles and she is ready to be burned.

The angel shall sound his trump loud and long, and all nations shall hear it, then silence in heaven for the space of half an hour. Immediately after the curtain of heaven shall be unfolded as a scroll and the face of the Lord shall be unveiled.

 

Resurrection, Judgment, and Celestial Crowning At The Glory Coming

Then the resurrection of the firstfruits of Christ. These shall descend with Him.

Another angel shall blow the second trumpet and those in the prison who have received the gospel so they could be judged according to men in the flesh shall come forth

The third trump will blow which will bring forth the spirits of men who are to be judged and found under condemnation. These will be sent back to the prison house for the thousand years and little season. (this is telestial glory--those from hell to receive life after paying the price because they wouldn't accept the gospel and abide the law of the universe.

The fourth trumpet will sound and announce that there are still those in the pit who will not be called forward,for these are the sons of perdition who defy. These will be cast off with Satan for eternity on the final day of judgment. After that Judgment Day, this earth is ready for eternity. Then will Christ go and visit the next system to teach them about God.

The fifth angel will sound his trumpet (which angel has charge of the everlasting gospel). Every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess while they hear the sound that God is God, and to Him belongs the glory, and the hour of His judgment is come.

Sixth angel will sound announcing the fall of the Catholic Church

The seventh angel will blow his trumpet saying, "It is finished." The angels will be crowned, saints will be filled with His glory, and receive their inheritance, and be made equal with Him.

 

Teaching Begins In Heaven

First angel blows his trumpet and everyone living will be taught what happened in the first thousandth year of Earth's creation: the secret acts of men and the mighty works of God.

Second trump will sound revealing the secret acts of men, the thoughts and intents of their hearts, and the mighty works of God in the second thousandth year. This will be repeated until the 6th angel has revealed the secret acts of men--i.e. 6 thousand years of rebellion on Earth.

The seventh angel sounds his trump and declares there is time no longer and Satan shall be bound for a thousand years. Therefore, this teaching time must be in heaven, for Satan is still loose on earth during this time of the first six trumps. The seventh trump ushers in the Millennial Reign. We assume that Satan cannot abide on Earth during any part of the Millennial Reign.

After the thousand years Satan will be loosed on earth for a little season so he may gather up his armies, the hosts of hell. They will come to battle against Michael (Adam) and his armies in the battle of the great God.

Satan and his armies will be cast away into their own place where they shall not have power over the saints any more at all; for Michael shall fight their battles, and shall overcome Satan, who is trying to take the throne of Christ. vs. 34

What To Teach

Teach from books and pray for divine revelation

  • Seek to teach one another "words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning even by study, and also by faith."

Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing, and establish

  • a house of prayer,
  • house of fasting,

  • a house of God

Cease from

  • all light speeches
  • laughter
  • lustful desires
  • all your pride and light-mindedness
  • from all your wicked doings.

Who Should Teach?

Appoint among yourselves a teacher, and let not all be spokesmen at once, but let one speak at a time, and let all listen unto his sayings, that when all have spoken, that all may be edified of all, and that every man may have an equal privilege.

  • See that ye love one another
  • cease to be covetous; learn to impart one to another as the gospel requires;
  • cease to be idle
  • cease to be unclean
  • cease to find fault one with another
  • cease to sleep longer than is needful
  • retire to thy bed early, that ye may not be weary
  • arise early, that your bodies and your minds may be invigorated
  • and above all things, clothe yourselves with the bonds of charity, as with a mantle, which is the bond of perfectness and peace

  • pray always, that you many not faint until I come; behold, and lo, I will come quickly, and receive you unto Myself.
