8. The MYSTERY of the SUCCESSIVE AGES of MAN REVEALED

Foreword

The Mystery of Having and Developing An Eternal Living Relationship With the Living Loving God Revealed. Over the centuries, man has always questioned whether there even was a “god.” Now in the early 21st century there is an alarming twisted retort about God. Many people are saying AND believing, “Man can actually live WITHOUT God!”

Prolog

What Is “TODAY” to God? “TODAY” is God’s unique ability to know and have the control of the beginning of the age through the end of the successive ages. Hebrews 3:12-13 brethren, take care, lest there be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving heart

Chapter I

Learning to Understand and Implement God’s Thoughts and Plans for Our Lives. The most difficult problem in a True Believer’s life is to learn, understand, and implement God’s will and ways – His Kingdom teaching {KT} and Kingdom living {KL} into our new lives. Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age),

In this Booklet, I would like to “paint” a word picture for you using multiple Scriptures revealing God’s Agape for man from BEFORE time began and then down through the successive ages of time to our present time and place in history and

Chapter III

When Was Your Name Written in God’s Book of Life? If God has “all of the days” of your life from before time began to your future written on your page in His ‘”Book of Life,” just how much do you think He knows about you? Please remember that God does NOT show favoritism: “For

Chapter IV

God’s Foreknown Thoughts and Plans for Your Life. I believe that God is and has always been present and involved in our lives every nanosecond of time for an incalculable period BEFORE time and history began down through the future {an incalculable period because there was NO time during that era}. His foreknown and predestined

Chapter V

All Naturally Conceived Children Are God’s Offspring. From here through the end of this booklet, I will be using the term “naturally conceived human offspring” meaning that each child that is conceived is done so according to God’s template for human reproduction as explained in Chapter IV. What I am trying to explain is God’s

Chapter VI

Other than Your Parents, Who Was At Your Natural Conception? How did you come into being at this time and place in history? Scientists have guesstimated that about 100 billion people have lived from the time man was first created on the earth. How many men in all of the 50 billion men that have

Chapter VII

God’s Miracle of Man’s Generations. I am now going to use a Scripture that no one even looks at let alone teaches. God shares with us that it is He who not only created Adam and Eve but also called forth and guided the successive generations of all the peoples in the world from the

God the Holy Spirit Implementing His Plans for You in His Creation. In Chapter I, we studied God’s foreknown and predestined plans found in His Book of Life that He had formulated for ALL of man from BEFORE time began. In this Chapter, we will be studying God the Holy Spirit’s work in history in

Chapter IX

Man’s God Given Responsibility to Work. From man’s beginning, he was given the responsibility to “work.” Before Adam sinned, God placed him by himself in the Garden of Eden to take care of it: Genesis 2:8, 15 And the Lord God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden ; and there He put the

Chapter XI

What It Means to God for Us to Be “Born Again” Adopted Children? A while back, I was watching Ravi Zacharias, a well-known worldwide Christian lecturer, teacher, apologist, etc., and his topic was “What Does It Mean to Be Human?” I went on the internet and entered that topic – WOW!!! Was there a lot

Chapter XII

Your Having A New Creature’s “STANDARD.” Is there any example in nature that illustrates what happens when a “sinner is Born Again?” I believe the example of an ugly caterpillar being morphed/changed into a beautiful butterfly is about as close a “physical example” of the change that takes place when a sinner is “spiritually supernaturally

Chapter XIII

You Partaking of God’s Divine Nature i.e. Your Having His Spiritual DNA. There are other really interesting God imputed spiritual characteristics that immediately indwell YOU as a NEW SPIRITUAL CREATURE in Christ! Only those who are truly “Born Again” will partake in the “Divine Nature {of the Almighty” i.e. having God’s spiritual supernatural DNA.} –

Chapter XIV

You As A True Believer Having A “ONENESS” With God. Not only are all truly “Born Again” Saints imputed with the SAME spiritual “STANDARD”/Spiritual Profile of God, BUT we now also partake of the SAME spiritual supernatural DNA of God! Can you see the imputed spiritual supernatural development that has/is taking place in you? ALL

CHAPTER XV

Our “ONENESS” with God He Lives in Us and We Live in Him. I pray this study of our “ONENESS” with God will help you to better know, understand, and live a life that demonstrates that the Godhead lives in you/us, and WE as “Born Again” adopted children of God are living in God. To

Chapter XVI

Your Spiritual Preparation for Your Spiritual Warfare in the “kingdoms of the world.” We have been endowed with God’s “STANDARD/”Spiritual Profile and have partaken of His Divine Nature so that we have spiritually supernaturally become “one spirit i.e. having a melded/commingled spiritual ONENESS with Him! We now MUST be spiritually clothed for the spiritual supernatural

Chapter XVII

God’s Spiritual Preparation for Your Spiritual Supernatural Warfare Through Prayer. I believe you are now ready to participate in the final preparation that is necessary for you to participate in the daily spiritual supernatural battle known as “Spiritual Warfare.” You have your spiritual armor on and now you MUST be spiritually “prayed up” daily before

Chapter XVIII

As A True Believer, Your Residence Has Changed. I pray that the preceding Chapters have given you some insights as to what happened to you down through the successive ages of your history, and what you are “TODAY” as a new creation because you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, Lord God, and Master.

Chapter XIX

I Know All of these Things, BUT I Just Cannot Seem to Secure God’s VICTORY in My Daily Life. I believe Satan is severely adulterating and contaminating the thinking and mindset within the so called “Christian Church!” Some of the teaching and preaching that is presently spewing forth from the “Church” and some of Its

Chapter XX

Now Comes God’s Judgment. What Part of Man Does God Judge? A person’s immortal and eternal “spirit” is God’s Spiritual Tracking Device containing their life’s FULL history including ALL of their activities and words from their conception to their death. It is God’s formed and imputed “gift” to man at their conception and is on

Chapter XXI

God’s Judgment of the Works of the Righteous and the Wicked. It is exciting to know that God’s righteous True Believers are already enjoying some of our “spiritual perks” in our daily lives. Ephesians 2:6 And He {God/Jesus Christ} raised us {His adopted children} up together with Him and made us sit down together

Chapter XXII

God’s Library Used for His Judgment There are three Books that are listed in the Bible as pertaining to God and His plans for His creation. The main Book of course is the Protestant Bible. This is God’s way of chronicling {the recording and narrating} of His successive ages of events in time, place, and

Chapter XXIII

God’s Timetable for One’s Judgment. I believe the following Scripture declares the preliminary process of God the Son’s acknowledgement of His adopted children and judgment of ALL of the sinners/ unsaved peoples of the world. This happens to everyone upon their death: Hebrews 9:27 And just as it is appointed for men once to

Chapter XXIV

The Millennial/Thousand Year Reign of Jesus Christ. I want to share with you that many theologians believe there are between five to seven judgments that have already happened throughout the course of history. These preliminary judgments have already happened awaiting the final judgment to come. Very early in history God judged Satan and the fallen

Chapter XXV

The GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT. We now come to the last and final judgment – the “Great White Throne Judgment” with Jesus Christ/God the Son – the Judge sitting on His Throne next to God the Father. The judgment will be of the Make Believer/Unbeliever/unsaved and will NOT be a pleasant experience!!! John 5:30 I

Summary

This Summary will give you some semblance of the order for God’s intimate and intricate thoughts, plans, and His participation in each foreknown and predestined naturally conceived person’s physical and spiritual life to participate in His “Gospel Message.” Before anything was, God sat on His Throne in His Kingdom in the third heaven working on
