Understanding the Eternal Plan of God

“From the very beginning of creation (Genesis 1:1), it has always been God’s plan to reveal Himself to us. To God, the creation of the time dimension and us as His creation was all part of the process of His revelation. From us as His creation, we progress forwards in time (measured by movements on the physical earth and measured by events in the Spiritual World) and it seems as if the past creates the future. From God’s perspective it is always the future (the final plan He has framed) which determines all events and powerfully shapes the purpose and basis for everything of the past and present towards the completed future.

It is the future which affects the past and the present. This includes all intervention in the cause of events, past and present, where the free will of His creation tries to push it away from the predetermined path of the completed future plan of God. For this reason even from the inception of creation, God has ordained that the event of the Lamb of God, slain before the foundation of the world, as the central revelation of His love towards us (Revelations 13:8).”

The Future changes the Past

“The future conceived in the mind brings about the desire to change the present using all the tools of the past. An architect conceives a design for a building. Once he completes the entire drawing and blueprint, the contractor uses the blueprint and constructs the physical building. Now if we acknowledge that what the architect conceived is a vision or perception of what he sees the future of the plot of land or old building site can be, then the future has created changes to the present.

From the Spiritual World perspective, every single idea or thought that has ever come to all humans arises first in the spiritual realm of thoughts. This realm of thoughts is heavily manipulated and activated by spirits from the Spiritual World in the struggle between light and darkness over the planet earth. From this pool of overall direction and confluence of thoughts, mature spirits can predict the future outcome even before they happen on the physical plane. As humans on earth pick up these thoughts, they become the instruments for bringing to pass on the physical plane that which is conceived in the spiritual realm. The whole spiritual battle is thus always in the thought realm (2 Corinthians 10:4-6).”

“Now as God retains control and supervision over all His creation to ensure that His plans and purposes are ultimately fulfilled, God releases His flow of thoughts and wisdom upon this realm of thoughts both directly and through His angels. He releases just sufficient so that it does not overpower the free will of His creation but it keeps the balance of forces in check so that the overall direction is always towards His eternal plan. These are the revelations of His works which He has prepared beforehand and finished before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 2:10; Hebrews 4:3).

Men and women, who are on earth and whose lives and nature are sensitive and predisposed to various types of thoughts, pick up these thoughts in their minds and when they finally receive comprehension of them in time, begin to act upon them thus bringing them to pass. In vision and conception, these thoughts are seen as completed (finished works) but as far as the physical world is concerned still something in the future time.

The reception of those thoughts which are from God result in living works and the reception of those which are from darkness result in dead works (Hebrews 4:10-12; 9:14). Words and thoughts from God produce a union with Him which results in a fruitful life (John 6:63; 15:1-8). Words and thoughts from darkness cause bondages (strongholds), trespasses and sin (Ephesians 2:1-3; 2 Corinthians 10:4). The seed of the future within us is the only force that is moving us forward. We only need to ensure that it is the seed of God to guarantee success (1 John 3:9; 5:4). The engine of the whole human race is hope and faith. Where hope and faith dies, everything dies and reverts backwards. It is the future (received in us) that changes the past and the present.”

Time is the Explanation and Understanding of Eternity

“Through the invention of the computer, the internet, radio, wireless communication and nanotechnology, mankind would be able to manipulate matter across time and space. These things are made possible through the discovery of electricity. What if there are more forces to be discovered that will facilitate whole new ranges of technology that will enable man to gain more and more scientific control of the universe that span into supernatural levels? What if the division between physical and spiritual is merely arbitrary and there are merely different gradients of understanding and connectivity between the two? Time is the Explanation and Understanding of Eternity. Time is the cross-section of Eternity and Eternity is the DNA of Time. Time will always unfold according to the plans of Eternity. The Future created the Past, and the Past builds into the revelation of the Future. As Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient Beings that are Timeless, All Powerful, can go anywhere and do anything and are practically Everything, We as God, the Collective One, decided to create Time to explain, understand and experience Ourselves/Self. It was for the purpose of explaining a Logical Progression to how we became what We Are. This is the path of the Evolution of Consciousness. We created a Starting Point to explain our End Point. We make our Eternal Present as the Ultimate Future by creating a beginning point of reference. We start with the basic environment of just trees and nature, and then we evolve into developing tools, using tools to discover elements of the periodic table and the forces of nature, and developing technology to harness it, and eventually manipulate and transform it like God. Therefore it is reasonable to say that those existing in the higher dimensions that aid us in our development are considered “Us in the Future” or our “Future Selves”. Time is an illusion and the separation between past, present and future and merely a separation of lower and higher dimensions. The higher dimensions are the future, and the lower dimensions are the past. If you can access and communicate information across dimensions, you can access and communicate information from the future and the past.

It is said that those who seek God on the scientific path are travelling up the mountain where when they arrive at the top, they will find that those who know Him by Faith are already there all along. But the difference is, those who took the scientific path will have engineered a pathway where they are able to move back and forth, transverse worlds and go anywhere and do anything with full understanding and precision. Whereas those who took the shortcut to God by faith alone can only sit in one place and can’t move as freely or knowledgeably anywhere else. Real faith is not blind faith. Real faith includes seeing and understanding everything and in every way. The Eternal Realm operates by Faith, and the Time Dimension operates by Experience. Faith alone is not God’s complete plan, otherwise he would not have created Mankind. The Angels already know Him by Faith. God’s plan includes Experiencing Him. Complete faith includes Experience, and the Ultimate Experience of God leads to Perfected Faith. The Bible says God created all things by Jesus Christ the True Avatar of God, and Jesus is Alpha and Omega, the Author and Finisher/Perfecter of Faith.”

“Evolution is the development of the energy of the universe in such a way that it has an increasing ability to consciously control itself and the universe around it. It is a progressive change from the unconscious to the conscious. We are the universe trying to comprehend itself. Man is the corporeal manifestation of the universe trying to control its own destiny. Man is God in the process of coming into existence.”

- James Hart

Light to the Planet Earth

“There are those angels and spirits who take part under the command of the Lord Jesus who become bearers of light towards the earth. This is done through a coordinated effort in which as a group, they become channels and enhancers of the light of Christ into the dark spheres by descending in a multi-sphere formation towards the darkness that surrounds the earth. The light of Jesus flows into them in a similar way in which light flows through an optic fibre cable and is enhanced at regular points onwards towards its destination. When this takes place it causes spiritual pressure upon the dark forces surrounding the earth as it is compressed downwards. Due to this compressed spiritual pressure, the darkness breaks upon the earth and at first, great evil seems to be released upon the earth that affects mankind and causes great suffering in wars, catastrophes, etc.

Although darkness seems to reign on the earth it is only temporary. The angels and spirits involved feel the suffering of mankind and have great love for humanity but they know that this is a necessary phase. Eventually due to this spiritual pressure of light upon the darkness of the earth, openings occur in the darkness surrounding the earth and the light breaks through to shine steadfastly upon humans living on the earth. This light leads mankind towards spirituality and brings man God-ward towards Christ. These events in the spiritual realm take place regularly and each event can be (in human terms) over several centuries with the ripples being felt over scores of years like waves of change in the human field of science, politics, religion, economics, etc. Note the wave of great evil and suffering that occurred before the exodus and before Jesus’ incarnation (Exodus 1:8-16; Matthew 2:16-18).”

“Even in the heavens, all the creation of God from the lowest spheres to the highest spheres are seeking to know God and to love Him. Every sphere has schools, universities and places of God’s manifestation, each learning and seeking to understand our Awesome God. As true knowledge of God is acquired, a glory transformation occurs to those who understand that particular level of knowledge. In billions of earth years, the highest spheres that have pre-existed planet earth are still coming to the knowledge of God.

There is so much to know of God that all the languages of humans are incapable of expressing who He really is. Even the word “God” is insufficient to express who He is. He is truly omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient but when we use the word “person” to refer to God it is an incomplete description because God is beyond time, beyond space, beyond energy and beyond “person.” He is the source, the creator and the sustainer of all life – all of our being and existence are in Him. He is the Supreme Being our Father God.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is the manifestation of the Supreme Being our Father God in time, space and energy in person simultaneously to all His creations (all of the Spiritual Universe) – so that all His creations can relate to God. Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Supreme Being our Father God are one. The Holy Spirit is the manifestation of the Supreme Being our Father God who “fills,” “sustains,” and “is” all time, all space and all energy. The Holy Spirit and the Supreme Being our Father God are one. Thus our Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are one. We can understand why for eternities, we will be learning and growing in knowing God.”

“There is an interesting phenomenon in the Spiritual World whereby angels and spirits in the highest spheres closest to God receive the life and light of God and pass it downwards through each sphere. There are no human words to describe it. It is like a “refraction” of light and life through the beings in the highest spheres downwards. But this life energy that goes through each of these beings is somehow enhanced and changed according to the characteristics of each being. Thus although it is the same light and energy, it now has an added “flavor” as it is transmitted to the spirits in the next sphere.

This work and activity is very specific and each partaking of the life, love and light of God is exactly for the one receiving it and is passed on specifically to the spirits of which they are in charge. This flows down the line (without getting weaker) through all the spheres until it reaches the earth sphere and downwards towards the planet earth. Some of these are commands and expressions of God’s Will which are communicated in ways which each sphere can receive and understand; thus the need to pass on through the various spirits or angels in charge as the higher sphere is always invisible to those lower. They can also be gifts and strengthenings that are imparted to enhance and increase the transformation towards the glory of God.

As each sphere is still growing and has its limitation of glory and understanding, it relies on those in the higher sphere to communicate and clarify the outflows of God’s life, love and light from His throne. The last one in this chain of blessing is usually the human on planet earth who receives it from his guardian angels and ministering spirits. Perhaps this was the phenomenon observed when our Lord Jesus was speaking to the angels of the seven churches in the book of Revelation (Chapters 2 and 3). This does not mean that God could not have manifested Himself through Christ directly to an individual. He does so from time to time. This activity is just one of the multiple processes of delightful work in heaven which God allows His creation to partake in.”

Events from the Foundation of Creation

“We were created in the Holy Spirit and chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4). God knew us by name and our names were written in the Book of Life before the foundation of the world (Jeremiah 1:5; Psalm 139:16; John 10:3, 14-15, 27-30; Revelation 17:8). Details of our individual destinies were planned and all the works were completed in the Spirit before time itself existed (Psalm 139:16; Ephesians 2:10; Hebrews 4:3).

We were all created through God the Word, who later revealed Himself on planet earth in human history as Christ Jesus (John 1:1-3; Matthew 1:21-23; Philippians 2:6-11; John 17:24). The Word brought forth the spiritual force of wisdom which fashioned us and all creation before the foundation of the earth (Job 38:4; Proverbs 3:19; 8:12-31; 1 Corinthians 1:30; Colossians 2:2-3, 9-10; 3:16).

We all follow a path of growth in God and at a certain point of development, and in order to develop the fullness of free choice and self-awareness, there is a requirement along the path of growth in God to assume physical bodies with limited knowledge and wrestle with the full power of free choice (Jeremiah 1:5; Romans 9:11; Galatians 1:15; Deuteronomy 30:11-20; Romans 10:8, 9). There is a potential risk (because of the power of free choice) that one moves away from God instead of towards God but it is an important growth step to be taken.

We need to also note that there are different levels of the ‘physical manifestations’ and not all the ‘physical worlds’ created by God have life forms at the same frequency as the ‘physical earth manifestation’ which is mineral carbon-based, water-based and oxygen-based. There are many other physical dimensions which are invisible to our physical eyes upon which other forms of ‘physical life’ can be based. There are myriads of other worlds within various galaxies and universes which God has created (Hebrews 11:3).”

“At some point, eons ago in the pre-Adamic earth, there was an entire civilization that existed before Genesis 1:3 on planet earth. Some of the fossils discovered are from the pre-Adamic world and not from the post-Adamic world. There was harmony between the inhabitants and the spiritual heavenly realms (when there is harmony the physical and the spiritual interact easily like Adam and Eve before the fall) but a rebellion took place involving Lucifer (Ezekiel 28:2-19; Isaiah 14:12-21). The entire pre Adamic earth and the portion of the Milky Way Galaxy around our Solar System was cast into darkness with about one third of spirits falling and taking the path away from God (Revelation 12:4).

The earth and its surrounding space became void and dark (Genesis 1:2) although it was not originally created that way (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 45:18). Many different places of spiritual darkness and imprisonments for fallen spirits came into existence. Although generally known as hell in the English language, the Greek language gives different names to some of these different places: Hades (Matthew 11:23; 16:18; 16:23; Acts 2:27, 31; Revelation 1:18; 6:8; 20:13, 14 – Sheol in Hebrew – Deuteronomy 32:22; Psalms 9:17; 139:8; Isaiah 5:14; Ezekiel 31:16), Gehenna (Matthew 5:22; 23:33; James 3:6), Tartarus (2 Peter 2:4), Brugmos – place of gnashing teeth (Matthew 8:12; 13:42, 50; 22:13; 24:51; 25:30; Luke 13:28), Exoteros – outer darkness (Matthew 8:12; 22:13; 25:30), Anudros – dry place (Matthew 12:43; Luke 11:24), Lake of Fire (Revelation 19:20; 20:10, 14, 15; 21:8).

When God commanded light to shine in Genesis 1:3, it was a fresh recreation as He began to banish the darkness from the physical earth. When God breathed into the physical body which He had made for Adam, the spirit of Adam came into the physical body and Adam was given free choice and self-awareness (soul) in a physical body (Genesis 2:4). The time was also ripe for the revelation of Christ to be brought forth in the post-Adamic lineage (Genesis 3:15; 1 Peter 1:20; Hebrews 9:26; 1 Corinthians 15:45-49).

Attempts were made by the fallen spirits of the pre-Adamic world to corrupt the Adamic race but they were dealt with and imprisoned in chains of darkness (Genesis 6:1-8; 2 Peter 2:4, 5; Jude 6). It was with the Adamic race that Christ sought to reveal the manifold wisdom of God’s love and mercy hidden from the past ages (Romans 11:11-36; Ephesians 3:5-11; 1 Peter 1:10-12, 20-21; Matthew 13:35; 25:34; John 17:24). There is a final confrontation between the remnant of fallen spirits of the pre-Adamic world and Christ before the final completion of this part of the Galaxy into a new earth and a new heaven (Revelation 9:1-21; 12:7-17; 19:19-20; 20:1-3, 7-10, 14; 21:1).”

The Revelation of the Lamb of God

“Even before the foundation of all creation, God knew that the elements of free choice and self-awareness given to His creation would result in the abuse and misuse of powers, forces and energies which He originally gave in benevolent love. These powers, forces and energies were to be used in beneficial unconditional love with pure selflessness but free choice and selfishness can turn the very same good into disharmonious energies which need an avenue to reverse and restore them into their original state of harmony. Thus He also included in His plan when He created time and spirits, the revelation of the Lamb of God slain before the foundation of the earth (Revelation 13:8; 1 Peter 1:20; Ephesians 1:3-5).

At the cross of Calvary, a cosmic battle ensued with consequences which shook and vibrated forwards and backwards in time and dimensions as the Spirit of Life in Jesus took hold of all the confluence of disharmonies flowing from all time and dispensations and restored them back into divine harmony with Almighty God. That which was ordained before the foundation of the world was unfolded for all the creations of God as the Lamb of God obediently fulfilled the plan of the ages (Revelation 5:1-14). All the power of the redemption of Christ was concentrated upon the cross and its impact flowed backwards in time as well as forwards in time (Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 1:20-21; 2:24).

The eternal plan of God was not just a cleansing work in the redemption of Christ but the impartation of the life of God through the redemption of Christ (John 3:5-6, 16; 6:48, 53; 10:10, 28; 11:25; 14:6). Physical blood has always been equated with life (Genesis 9:4-6; Leviticus 17:11-14; Deuteronomy 12:23; Hebrews 9:11-28). The key to understanding the power of the blood is not just to see it ‘like a cleansing, bleaching agent’ which washes us white as snow (Isaiah 1:18; Revelation 7:15), although this does happen. Rather it is in reality to receive the Life of Jesus into us (Romans 5:9-10; 6:4-11; Romans 6:4-11; 8:2, 11). Thus a head knowledge of the redemption of Christ does not change us but rather the infusion of the Life of Jesus transforms us (James 2:19, 26; Romans 8:15-17).”

“In the Spirit World, there is a vast difference between spirits who are still learning and progressing in the various schools in the spiritual realm (Romans 2 category) and those who have learned to receive the Life of Jesus through union with Him. Those who learn to open themselves to the light, love and life of Jesus shine much brighter than those who choose to explore the various myriads of schools in the Spirit World and grow through their various stages of teachings.

Many of those spirits in the various schools do not realize that in the end they would find that all their great learning and understanding was actually flowing through various channels from Jesus Himself. These include many Christians who have not learned to have a deep relationship and union with Jesus but who had only filled their lives with teachings about Jesus; much of which are filled with their own prejudices and their own theology about God. It is the desire of Jesus to bring us to the position of glory where He is, one in the Godhead of the Father (John 17:24).”

Complete Harmony and Union with God

“The eternal call and purpose of God in creating all of us is that as we develop our uniqueness and self-awareness to the fullest extent through all the Spiritual World spheres, we also grow towards a more complete union with Him through Christ Jesus. This harmony is achieved through Him completely being in us and we being completely in Him – His fullness of life in us and our fullness of life in Him. It is the supreme desire of Jesus to bring us to the place where He is in the Godhead of the Father, that we may behold the fullness of the glory of God (John 17:21-24).

There are degrees of union with God. In the revelation of God throughout the Bible, it is always the revelation of the desire of God to inhabit His people. In the Old Testament, it was through the tabernacle and temple in their midst and in the New Testament, we have become His living temples (Exodus 25:22; 40:35; 2 Chronicles 5:14; 1 Corinthians 6:19; 1 Peter 2:5). We are no longer limited to worship Him by place or time but are free to worship in spirit and in truth (John 4:23. 24). We have become His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all, a habitation of God in the Spirit (Ephesians 1:23; 2:22).

It is important to start this walk in union with Christ on earth and complete its fullness in the Spiritual World (John 15:1-5). It begins with His Word, life and love in us and we in Him (John 15:7; Romans 5:5). We need to continue to let the fullness of Christ be in us as we are in Him (Ephesians 3:17-19). When Christ who is our life appears, we shall also appear with Him in glory (Colossians 3:4). As we behold Him, we are transformed into the same image (2 Corinthians 3:18).”
