If God is true, then why is there so much suffering in this world? Part 2
To create a good film, we need an actor and a persecutor or the hero as well as the villain. Eliminate one and the movie becomes a total trash. This one is self explanatory.
"God wanted a Son". Have you thought how God is going to do it?
On the human realm, having a son is easy. Just bring the boy and the girl together and tomorrow they will have one.
Although technically, scientifically and emotionally, the amount of activities running on the background to set the condition necessary for the man and the woman to conceive a child is enormous.
How much harder would it be on the spiritual realm?
A Son means someone who is going to inherit the characteristics of the father and the mother as well as an heir to possessions and when the time comes, authority. Simply put, the father wanted to have someone equal to him in any likely manner. A compeer, a friend, a colleague, a comrade, a son.
God knew he cannot conceive one in the Angelic Realm. Angels are individually created individuals having finite amount of Energy and information. That information can be sustained, reinforced, reduced or worst, corrupted. But to actually create someone at par to him requires something much much more.
and the Antagonist
Now this is where all the hardships start. An ideal son requires an ideal villain.
Gold is made pure through the furnace and the silver through the crucible. There is no shortcut to success. That is a common folly of immature people. All successes require hard work. Plenty of it!
A war is won in the camp and not in the field. He who wins makes plenty of calculations beforehand.
Unless otherwise intervened by superior or divine beings. Sometimes it is they who decide not us.
They have plans you know, as we also have plans.
Be keen with it or be bitter in the end.
Now in order to create the most solid rock, you have to defeat all weather conditions or for you to create the firmest of the tree, you need to defeat the fiercest of the storm.
In a similar manner, for a person to qualify as the child of God, you have to undergo series of trials and tribulations necessary to refine and test your character in preparation for the coming kingdom.
God is creating the rock in you! The golden race tried and tested in all ways. The finest beer in town. Nothing but awesomeness!
How much effort, time and resources God have invested on the Protagonist to make him the entity ideal enough to bring that purest gold to come out in you?
You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. Every precious stone adorned you. You were anointed as the guardian cherub. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you!
The Virgin Mary
Now here is where the angels came short of becoming a God; the lack of wife. Once they were created, always they were.They didn't have the chance to start from scratch, to fail, to pick up the pace, to learn slowly the steps, and to overcome it all.
They don't have the chance to grow and experience all the qualifying conditions necessary to build their identity, credibility and integrity. They could not prove themselves! They are missing something and it was a very big miss! A miss of a lifetime.
The culprit? God!
When God created the Angels, He knew this day would come and there was no mistake.
For to someone as witty as the Archangel Lucifer, it didn't take much for him to figure out.
The time has now come for God to execute His plan.
And the Mystery Babylon
The angels that rebelled demanded wives of their own from God.
They have figured out that God is up to something big which have direct implication on the power and authority they are holding in heaven.
God is raising a Son and it's no joke for the rebelling angels.
We came first, we should be the one holding positions of authority not them. What happened to seniority?
Fine, you want a Son, we also wanted sons of our own. We know you have your plans of building your wife, the Church of God. Now let us also have our own wives and we will procreate our own children. The angels were so bitter. They knew they could not negotiate God. The least they could do is to bargain.
For in his mind, God had already predetermined everything from the beginning. The angels were caught surprised along the way.
The Angels shouted for joy at the creation of the world
I do not know for sure if the rebelling angels lived on Mars and God destroyed it because of their iniquities and afterwards migrated to earth and descended from mount Olympus or the tower of Babylon to influence mankind.
But get this for certain! In the Book of Genesis, God recreated the Earth alone. All six days of it.
Now here is where the hard science and theology converges and nothing could be really made more difficult to explain. The creation of the earth is no magic. No shortcuts were made and no magic wands were involved. The actual age of the earth is around 4.5B years and the universe around 14B years; leave that to the scientist and to the astronomers. For sure they knew their job.
But according to Genesis, the Earth is only created for 6 days and on the 7th, He rested. Or after further biblical research, the earth ages only to 6 thousand years. How can that be? This subject is very elaborate and revealing so I will cover this on another hub.
The point I want you to grasp at this juncture is that on the first 6 spiritual days of biblical creation, which has nothing to do with the physical account of creation, God created the Earth and its abode alone but just right at the end of the 6th day, He invited others and said:
"Let us make man unto our own image after our very likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air and all creatures that creeps unto the ground"
Who were the others whom God invited? Right, the fallen Angels.
At last, at long last, the angels who rebelled can now prove themselves to God! They can now shake their fist and mock their creator who have underestimated their skills and abilities.
Why would you give all these inheritance to the earthlings? Did we not labor hard with each other in the past to accomplish these grand creation? All 14 Billion years of it?
Watch and learn till we bore our own children with Humanity. Your Sons and Daughters will be like a wet chick compared to our Sons and Daughters. Just Wait and see.
A most daring challenge against God.
The most ideal scene, the much awaited moment
So after years and years of physically evolving organism from dust into an image, physically identical to him and the angels, capable of sustaining and processing information and emotions not just instincts, God finally chose one man named Adam and revealed to him his way of life. He sanctified him there at the garden of Eden. This happened approximately 6,000 years ago according to Bible.
The Angels too introduced their own spiritual semen to the rest of humanity. Imagine the benevolence of God. One is enough for me, the rest is all yours. He is really outraging and underestimating these band of angels.
Now this one is important. What are the ways God introduced to Adam and what did the Angels introduced to their own Sons?
Symbolically, God stated you may eat of everything in the garden of Eden except of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, else, you die.
Symbolically, the Angels stated, do not believe Him for He is a liar, you may eat it and you will never die.
Putting in simple language, whatever God says, we oppose. A complete insubordination. A total rebellion.
God's ways as we knew it is Peace, so the Angels went in favor of War. God wanted cooperation, the Angels promoted Competition. God goes for the protection of the weak, needy and helpless. The Angels in turn promoted survival of the fittest.
God introduces Humility and Patience. The Angels wanted attention and praises. God promoted meekness and subsistence. The Angels wanted Power, Dominion, Control and Authority. God promotes hardship for the things you want to earn.The Angels want it by fiat and out of thin air.
Actually, not all the time, God is in the Positive. There were times when He indeed calls for War and it is the Angels who calls for Peace. Times when God wants us to compete and the Angels wanted cooperation. Times when God give Man features of superiority in physique and mentality and the Angels deprive also their Children.
Get the point straight!
God through the rebelling Angels is able to create a perfect scene that will enable Him to create a copy of himself. It seems to me that He is emulating something that had happened long ago before the creation begins.
He already saw the outcome of this event and I think He is confident He can deliver.
How to create a God
To truly create a Gold, you need a furnace to test it. To truly create a Silver, a crucible is needed.
To create a God, an opposing force is very much needed. For true light only shines among the darkness. You cannot do that if everywhere there is only light. This is the case for the Host of Angels whom God created prior to man.
To create a genuine, sincere, credible character, one must undergo hardships and persecution. And you can never do that without the employment in absolute opposition.
It is not something that can only be stated and gained through plain language. You must experience it firsthand.
You must be opposed, ridiculed and persecuted for something you truly believe!
The plan for you is to become
as immovable as the rock,
as flexible as the wind,
as terrible as the lightning,
as soft as the marshmallow, etc..,
when it comes to your faith.
And do that while you have the playground to do that in this generation for there is no more second earth and second protagonist in the Kingdom where you are going.
Whatever you become, is equivalent to the investments you have made in this current world. And in the process, you are building your character.
This is the right time! A much awaited time in universal history.
How much value do you think an employer would have put to your work experiences in your resume?
Absorb the essential nutrients! God is not creating another dominion of Angels in Man.
The creation of Angels has long been done. No angel is capable of complaining to Him until that time came when one of the Angels slowly evolved into thinking similar to God.
And God actually made that Angel another God beside Him. He appointed him as the current ruler of this World. Yet that God is not one born of the Kingdom of God but only evolved into thinking like that of God.
He did not went through the usual process of filtering and sanctification. No spiritual baptism both in water and in fire were made.
A house built upon the sand!
It is only expected to last until the time comes for God's Son, who is the rightful Ruler of this world, to arrive.
The one born of the spiritual Virgin Mary and not of the Woman of Iniquity.
Watch out for my part 3 :)
