(Continues from the 1st part)
Imagine what a slap –not to mention a more devastating punch– from God will do. God, as we have in Psalm 139:7-12, Proverbs 15:3 & Jeremiah 16:17, teach His ever-presence at all times in everywhere in the entire universe, on land and in the innermost part of every palpability of objects of human treading and navigation. Psalm 139:7-8, “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? (8) If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there”. Isaiah 46:9-10 and Proverbs 15:11 do shed light on His omniscience. “…I am God, and there is none like me, (10) Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure” (Isaiah 9-10). “Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world” (Acts 15:18). And to cap it all is His foreknowledge of:
(i) Contingencies: 1Samuel 23:10-12
(ii) Future events: “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them” (Isaiah 42:9); Jeremiah 1:5; Acts 2:23.
(iii) Human needs: Matthew 6:8
(iv) The Day of Judgment: Mark 13:32
(v) The redeemed: “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Romans 8:29). See also, Romans 11:2 & 1Peter 1:2.
Is God a good Person as Matthew 7:11 asks? “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” Matthew 19:17, “And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments”. There is no evil in Him: Psalm 34:16, “The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth;” read also Jeremiah 44:11; Amos 5:14 & 9:4. If God is good and has all these incomprehensible power to deal with all circumstances, then He knows why He did, and why He allowed what. When we get to heaven (make sure you’re born again before you die) He will explain all things to us, surely.
Lucifer, the dark angel and his demons
It is wrong to colour God’s actions. You will be delivering Lucifer’s message thereby. Lucifer would not be allowed to be Masonically generative in the heavenly assizes, and would not be permitted to step into an unauthorized position. He flared up. Lucifer missioned himself to set mankind against the will of God. Many have fallen into his trap, turning themselves against the thrice holy God. In Genesis 6:5, it is said of Satan’s achievement: “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.” So he has succeeded in making those who think they are wise enough to believe that they can teach God what to do.
Could demons look thus?
The first living beings God created were endued with intelligence. Angelic beings know why they were made. In a most befitting sanitary holiness, these magnificent ones were brought into creation to beseem the sacrosanct ambience of the celestial abode of the thrice holy Jehovah. God did not decide to create robots for a good reason. He (God) needed intelligent ones who would, from a cognitive dispositions, make decisions from a desiderative mind, which is totally committed to the worship of the truly Most High and who alone deserves all honour, glory and power!
Any created being who infringes on an inviolable code should be intelligent enough to understand the implications of taking steps in an audacious contempt of the heavenly assizes. Had God any other choice but to sentence Lucifer and his co-putsch plotting scoundrels into eternal damnation? I believe not! The beings of the earth at the fall of Lucifer followed the Devil, were stripped of their bodies, and they became the disembodied spirits: demons. I have here, the link to my five-part post: “DEMONISM,” to enable an understanding of the origin of demons: https://hoojewale.wordpress.com/2016/04/30/demonism-part-one …
God allowed Satan to dwell on his heinous desires, concoct the machinations, scout for unholy votaries, and the unfortunate execution of the evil intention, so that He would prove to Lucifer how great Jehovah truly is. God wanted to show him that all the unbelievable praises in the worship of Him, all of which had tumbled from his angelic lips, were absolutely true! Satan gambled and, inevitably, he lost. Amen.
Lucifer, you were so full of pride, which goes ere falls of great entities, and again you failed to sprawl in absolute submissiveness before the LORD GOD. Faith in God would have enabled you to have explored a hitherto unknown merciful nature of Him, who sits on the everlasting throne. You gambled pridefully. The truth is: if you had to gamble you should have brought faith, according to His Word, on the table of stake.
