Hope in the Face of Man’s Appraisal of His Future by the Standard of Self

"For I have overcome the World..."

It is very simple to see the “impossible” (to man’s sight in
these days given to his own glory) path to God’s regeneration of man and of Creation,
when the man rescinds his allegiance to theological sloth and machinations of
man’s Pride and Ignorance clothed in supposed “scholarly” exegesis
which amount to man trying to pull God’s Word into the context of his own
temporal, political and moral frame of reference. Darby himself spoke of the
burgeoning evil of man in the “Millennium” posited in
Premillennialism, “When this obedience is not paid (to God’s Law),
excision (execution) takes place, so that all is peaceful and
happy.”(Collective Writings, xi., p. 534).
The Millennium spoken of here is one where Jesus Christ, King of the
Universe, is STILL, post-Second Coming, allowing bondage to a burgeoning evil, of
both Creation and those saints apparently living IN A GLORIFIED STATE. This theory
also places under bondage to evil the very creation said in Romans 8:20-21, to
be freed unto regeneration at the revelation of the Sons of God (At Pentecost
it starts and finishes at Glorification at Christ’s Second Coming) .  As we know from Genesis 4:10,

Genesis 4:10 (ESV) 10 And the LORD said, “What have you
done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground.

…with evil present and violations of wicked sin such as
murder occurring in this “Millennium” of Premillennialism, even with Darby’s
“excisions”, physically, of the sinners under the iron rod rule of
Christ, the creation will be re-tainted with the wickedness of sin as the Blood
of the murdered taints the ground which was Glorified according to the Bible at
the revelation of the Sons of God or at the time of the Elect’s FULL
glorification through the infusing to them of Christ’s FULL Righteousness and
their Glorified Bodies at His Second Coming.

Romans 8:19 (ESV) 19 For the creation waits with eager
longing for the revealing of the sons of God.

Romans 8:21-22 (ESV) 21 that the creation itself will be set
free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the
children of God. 22 For we know
that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth
until now.

To have the GLORIFIED dwelling amongst the Reprobate is not
something that is possible in that the Reprobate CANNOT look upon the Glory of
God which would be in us in the FULLNESS of Christ; just look at what Moses had
to do as the Glory of the Law was NOT fully infused to him but simply
communicated to him with God giving him the Grace to understand its
implications spiritually. The people could not
even gaze at him without terror because they saw in his face the Glory of God’s
Character (God’s Law):

Exodus 34:29-30 (ESV) 29 When
Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tablets of the testimony in his
hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his
face shone because he had been talking with God. 30
Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, and behold, the skin
of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.

Exodus 34:35 (ESV) 35 the people of Israel would see the
face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face was shining. And Moses would put
the veil over his face again, until he went in to speak with him.

 

You see, at the death and resurrection of Christ, this
REGENERATION BEGAN; not just of the “Sons of God” (called such because we ALL
receive as Elect, the heir status of the First Born Son (JESUS) and receive the
Best of the Father’s “estate”) but the ENTIRE CREATION itself began to move
toward Regeneration unto New Heavens and New Earth by the infusion of the
Righteousness of Christ, just as the Righteousness is infused to the Elect, but
in the extended timing of God’s Plan for the Covenant’s unveiling (to God 1000
years = day & vice versus-2 Peter3:8). EVERY attempt by Satan to extirpate
the Church, with the greatest and strongest of his Beasts of Daniel for example
(The Roman Empire)  ….

Daniel 7:7 (ESV) 7 After this I saw in the night
visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly
strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped
what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were
before it, and it had ten horns.

…..HAS FAILED. The “Beast” or the “Antichrist” are NOT some
SINGLE INDIVIDUAL who will be the “worst of the worst” but are clearly revealed
in history:

1) The Beast from the Sea – Apostate Political Power* under
the control of the Dragon**, the defeated Ruler of the reprobate minions of
evil….Satan (“The Prince of the Power of the Air)

*Revelation 13:1 (ESV) 1 And
I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten
diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads.

 

**Revelation 12:8-10 (ESV) 8 but
he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that
ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole
world— he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with
him. 10 And I heard a loud voice
in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God
and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has
been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.

2) The Antichrist was handled by John (Antichrist was NEVER
used in Revelation by the way) as was the Man of Lawlessness Paul Pointed to in
2 Thessalonians –

Antichrist-Man of Lawlessness—
NOT a person but a series of revolts to the rise of Christ’s Kingdom, which are
tools of the devil…(Rome was the first with its rivers of Christian blood, then
the Roman Catholic Blood bath from the Papal Apostasy was the second “Beast or
Antichrist or Man of Lawlessness”…now there is the rise of the apostate  US Government and apostate God-less,
Arminian-Humanist-Unitarian-Satanism “Christianity” glorifying everything BUT
the One True God…and it WILL FALL too by the “Sword from the Mouth of Christ” wielded
by His Church as we pick up the weapons of the Reformation’ advance in
theological Righteousness of Christ again….

1 John 2:18 (ESV) 18 Children, it is the last hour, and
as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come.
Therefore we know that it is the last hour.

1 John 2:22 (ESV) 22 Who is the liar but he who denies
that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and
the Son.

1 John 4:3 (ESV) 3 and every spirit that does not
confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you
heard was coming and now is in the world already.

The rule of God in righteousness and justice is absolute,
not based upon God’s ability to put down the rebellion or opposition but based
upon God’s ability to entirely extirpate sin from his creation at will.  The Premillennial “Millennium”
associates of glorified Christ, bathed in absolute righteousness and glory,
along with his siblings of the same constitution, with the sin and death which,
according to Romans 8, should have been cleansed away forever in the presence
of such glory.  We have a Bible,
especially Isaiah, replete with allusions to a time commensurate with the realization
of the commandment of the Great Commission, the subversion of Christ’s enemies
under his feet (Psalm 110, 1 Corinthians 15) and the destruction of the first
Beast (apostate political power) and the second Beast or False Prophet
(false/apostate religious power) to an increasingly ineffective state under a
burgeoning Righteousness.

Psalm 110:1-2 (ESV) 1 The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my
right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2 The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty
scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies!

1 Corinthians 15:24-25 (ESV) 24 Then
comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father AFTER
destroying every rule and every authority and power. 25 For he must reign until he has
put all his enemies under his feet.

This time alluded to by the occurrences fulfilling the
aforementioned vss.,  will be an
indefinite “millennium” of increasing righteousness where the Church
of Christ will expand under the sovereign election of those Jesus commands to
be evangelized i.e…..

Acts 1:8 (ESV) 8 But you will receive power when the Holy
Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all
Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Nature itself will also see a burgeoning of righteousness in
that the very animals themselves who were made blood thirsty in the fall, will
have a change in the fundamental integrity of their nature, just as man will
experience en masse…

–Isaiah 11:6 (ESV) 6 The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion
and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them.

—As more of the great rebellions are crushed and become
less effective as Christ’s Righteousness spreads with growing ubiquity in man
and Creation, there will be evidences which reflect this advance as Jesus
enemies are put under His feet  …. What
evidences?

Isaiah 65:17-25 (ESV) 17 “For
behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not
be remembered or come into mind. 18 But
be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for behold, I create
Jerusalem to be a joy, and her people to be a gladness. 19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in
my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of
distress. 20 No more shall there
be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill
out his days, for the young man shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a
hundred years old shall be accursed. 21 They
shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their
fruit. 22 They shall not build and
another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a
tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of
their hands. 23 They shall not
labor in vain or bear children for calamity, for they shall be the offspring of
the blessed of the LORD, and their descendants with them. 24 Before they call I will answer; while they
are yet speaking I will hear. 25 The
wolf and the lamb shall graze together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox,
and dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my
holy mountain,” says the LORD.

— Those things we see every day which confound and sadden
the Christian who is TRUE and grounded in God’s Absolute Sovereignty as the
backdrop to his NOTHINGNESS without Him; those injustices where evil is claimed
good and righteousness in Christ claimed evil and people blinded in a world
with a rapacious infection of sin……will start to change as the balance tilts….as
the Regeneration takes hold in a much clearer dominance ……

Isaiah 32:1-8 (ESV) 1 Behold, a king will reign in
righteousness, and princes will rule in justice. 2
Each will be like a hiding place from the wind, a shelter from the
storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in
a weary land. 3 Then the eyes of
those who see will not be closed, and the ears of those who hear will give
attention. 4 The heart of the
hasty will understand and know, and the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to
speak distinctly. 5 The fool will
no more be called noble, nor the scoundrel said to be honorable. 6 For the fool speaks folly, and his heart is
busy with iniquity, to practice ungodliness, to utter error concerning the
LORD, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the
thirsty of drink. 7 As for the
scoundrel— his devices are evil; he plans wicked schemes to ruin the poor with
lying words, even when the plea of the needy is right. 8 But he who is noble plans noble things, and
on noble things he stands.

Isaiah 34 reveals the Judgment the wicked kingdom can
repeatedly expect, no matter their temporary victory.

Isaiah 35 reveals the Glory and Hope the Elect and the
Creation itself can expect as His Righteousness takes hold.

God did not allow evil to become extant to chase Good out of
the world in order to hide in Heaven; God made evil possible, that those chosen
to reign with him in submissive glory would know and harbor gratitude for the glorious
& righteous state of their eternal station in a capacity superseding all
created beings prior; for the glorified human will carry within himself not
just a great Gift of being and station but an inextricable tale, each his own,
of the rise from a torturous dead existence to the most glorious Gift of Life
and a perfect appraisal of the value of that Gift, full and eternal in its
provision, in the form of Selfless Love, which is what Jesus meant in saying
“I came to serve not to be served.”
And thus we will serve our God for eternity, in perfect Joy and inside
the Love we all desire. Defeat (Premillennialism) and Neutrality (Amillennialism)
are unbiblical and unfaithful to the King, Jesus, whose Authority in
Sovereignty WILL be known, forevermore.  God
Bless You with Eyes to See and Ears to Hear.
