THE INCREDIBLE HUMAN POTENTIAL
99
overcome,
to qualify to sit, first, now, on His Father's throne, and,
next on
His own throne-
the throne ofDavid, in Jerusalem!
CONSIDER!
Think
on this! If Jesus was required to overcome
Satan - the former Lucifer- who is still on the throne where God
originally placed him - in order to QUALIFY to succeed the dis–
qualified Lucifer on that throne- should we humans be required to
do less, in that we ALSO may sit on that throne with Christ?
Mark well this fact! What Jesus is quoted above as saying ap–
plies ONLY to those called
BEFORE
Christ's return in ALL POWER
ANO GLORY- to sit with Him
when
He sits on that throne!
1have said repeatedly, THE WORLO AS AWHOLE is CUT OFF from
all contact with God- for 6,000 years dating from Adam! Jesus said
plainly,
"No mancan
cometo me, except the Father which hath sent
me draw him" (John 6:44). Unless CALLEO- drawn- by God the
Father, ALL HUMANITY IS TOTALLY CUT OFF FROM Goo!
What, then? Is there injustice with God? Are all others LOST?
-condemned without a chance to the ultimate second death in
"the lake of tire"?
Positively
NO!
1 will show you that those NOT CALLEO are simply NOT
JUOGEO. They are NOT "lost" - neither are they "saved." What a
tragedy that those professing Christianity have been themselves
CUT OFF from this TRUTH!
But first, notice what Jesus also said, recorded in Revelation
2:26-27: "And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto
the end, to him will 1 give power over the nations: And he shall
rule them with a rod ofiron...."
Those called and drawn by God must keep on overcoming
Satan
"unto the end"
of this life! But they not only then shall sit
with Christ in His throne - they shall, under Him, RULE over all
nations. This shall be the fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy of 7: 18.
God's Festivals Portray the
Master Plan Being Worked Out Here Below
We now come to an eye-opening revelation, indeed!
God gave His annual Festivals, with their seven annual Holy
Days (Sabbaths) to His "Church" - then called the Congregation
of Israel - in the days of Moses!
