Many Mansions

 

Today, the reply is on the many divine works that are being completed in preparation for the appearing of Jesus Christ to harvest the earth (we say, the Advent; the Rapture; the Second Coming). Jesus has returned to heaven, and is serving there as a Chief Administrator to allot and distribute divine benefits and rewards; a Master Builder of an holy city, the New Jerusalem; an High Priest to make atonement for sin; an impartial and righteous Judge; and Ruler of the divine kingdom. The Anointed One and Risen Lord, will complete eternal works that have been begun on the earth, and will begin new works that will unfold throughout unnumbered ages. One of the fighters in the “Yahoo! Answers (UK)” public forum on Religion and Spirituality who uses the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

 

If Jesus is coming back shouldn’t He get to steppin’ before the world falls apart?

What’s He waiting for?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 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. 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: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 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. 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. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 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. (2nd Peter 3: 3-10, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Divine Forgiveness and Justice (01/01/2019); His Words About Returning (12/02/2018); Preparing For The Rapture (11/09/2018); A Short Time Left (10/30/2018); Challenged To Explain Resurrection (10/08/2018); Blessed Assurances Are Provided (09/19/2018); Incurring “The Second Death” (04/02/2018); “The End Is Near” (03/14/2018)

 

Anonymous”, impenitent sinners, mockers, scorners and skeptics are the ones who should seriously “get to steppin’ ”. In addition to the developing Christian believers becoming fully mature/ripe, there are multiple works divinity (we also say, the divine fullness; the Godhead; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) must complete before Jesus Christ may come to harvest the earth. Along with acknowledging the presence within the living of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD and assigning value (we say, final judgment) to the new creation, the church, there must be the cleansing of the Sanctuary within the Temple of heaven; the Devil cast into the lake of fire (the second death); the second resurrection; and the Great White throne judgment. Here is a sample of things that mature Christian believers focus upon when acknowledging that we are in the End Time, and the coming of Jesus is closer and closer:

1. The Prophecy: Isaiah 65: 12-18, King James Version (KJV): 12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not. 13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: 14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. 15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name: 16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes. 17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

2. The Warning. Revelation 12: 7-12, KJV: 7 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. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

3. His Promise. John 14: 1-3, KJV: 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. The End of Mortality. Eternal life has already begun for those of the new creation, who are an instrument divinity will use in establishing the new heavens and earth. Revelation 21: 6-8, KJV: 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
