END OF THE WORLD?


“END OF THE WORLD?”
“I go before you!”

A couple of days ago a friend of mine wrote something on my facebook page that really sent me off thinking. Flashes of what the scripture quoted meant came to me, like “lightning” from heaven. A quick word on that by the way. Lightning in the natural at night briefly lights up your surroundings. Whatever is closest to you, you will see clearly and understand it is right before you because for a brief moment the light from the Lightning revealed it to you. Lightning is a wonderful allegory of revelation, short bursts of insight.

Luke 17:24
For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day

Now what should be noted about this, is we are not reading here about the SON OF GOD, but the SON OF MAN. Because in the SON OF MAN’S DAY his/her revealing is as Lightning. Which doesn’t last long, but comes in bursts, in other words the son of man knows in part, the son of God knows the whole.

1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known

So for the time being, insight will come to us, a revealing will take place. Things will simply begin to make sense. And, as they say, like layers of an onion little by little these insights are helping us get to that sweet core (Christ In Us) – Which comes without observation. So for those that are waiting for a literal Jesus to return outside of being revealed within them, then they will be waiting until the revelation of this mystery hits them. And Jesus understood this, he understood mankind would be waiting for a “son of man” to return, instead of understanding the son of God is revealed IN THEM.

Luke 17
22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. 23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

Even Jesus knew that his disciples would desire to literally SEE one of the days of the SON OF MAN, but he tells them, LOOK YOU WON’T SEE IT PHYSICALLY! Remember he also reminded them in this chapter the Kingdom of heaven doesn’t come with literal observation. And now, as in times past, we have yet another false belief that “Jesus is going to return” May 21, 2011. And many, many people are DESIRING TO LITERALLY SEE THIS. But as Jesus said, THEY WON’T! He even warned that when they say, look over here, see over there, get prepared, do this, do that, GO NOT AFTER THEM, NOR FOLLOW THEM!

That is the problem today in a nutshell, too many people are following other people as opposed to follow the SPIRIT WITHIN THEM. I have often challenged people to stay away from their churches for just a week or so, stay in quiet contemplation and simply ask God to show them the truth and soon that Lightning will begin to illuminate things they never saw or heard before. It may not happen immediately, but it will happen. You can’t force revelation, but when you ask for it, IT WILL COME! But it comes when you least expect it.

1 Thessalonians 5:2
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night

Of course this is NOT speaking of a literal physical return of Jesus the man from thousands of years ago, returning when you least expect it. But it speaks as to the revelation that takes place within you, and breaks through your house of false beliefs, and takes away the false beliefs you once held, so you can be free from your worldly beliefs.

This is why we are encouraged to KEEP WATCH! Simply put, when you ask for revelation, when you are seeking God’s truth you WILL KEEP WATCH FOR IT, and it will come (be revealed within you)… when you least expect it. I’m sure if you are reading this article you already know what I mean. You have experienced it.

Paul gave some great advice in Thessalonians, he said STAY AWAKE (be enlightened) because if you don’t know that God is in control of all things when trouble comes you will be hurt, sad, and won’t see the point in it. But if you are AWAKE you know that all things work together, so you do not consider the fiery trial set before you but you have HOPE! Those who are asleep (ignorant of the truth) are being fed a constant diet of ear tickling, people telling them that if they tithe, accept their jesus, do what they say, then only good things will come their way. But these people are ignorant, and when God begins working in their lives it will seem as if they are being cursed by God, as opposed to seeing that God is merely getting them to a place where they trust only in God.

1 Thessalonians 5
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Now this verse has been taught that the SUDDEN DESTRUCTION that comes upon people is THE END OF THE WORLD! However, if anyone takes the time to re-read the next verse, we will see what this destruction is likened to… AS THE TRAVAIL UPON A WOMEN WITH CHILD! This has NOTHING to do with the destruction of the literal world around you people, it has to do with the destruction of the carnal world within you, like being pregnant, at first you don’t know you are pregnant, soon you get excited, but right before you give birth it is so painful you want to die! And yes, that is how it is spiritually! WE WILL HAVE TRIBULATION IN THIS WORLD! This is so we will learn to let go of the OLD MAN (Carnal ignorant ego) for the NEW MAN (Who we really are/God’s child).

But notice the next line… “But you are NOT IN DARKNESS that that day should overtake you as a thief” – There are many that are doing as I recommend. Many who are asking God “Teach me the truth no matter what the cost”, many who are leaving man-made religions and beliefs to find the truth within. They are the ones FAITHFULLY WAITING for their MASTER TO RETURN (be revealed). The day of this revelation will NOT come to them as a thief, because they are expecting the break in (break through).

We have way too many gloom and doom preachers out there teaching… “THIS IS THE END OF DAYS!” Oh my goodness, if they would only find out what the END OF THE WORLD really was… Take a look at what the WORLD is below.

1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

This is what is coming to an end, OUR LUSTS! The very lusts that caused us all to fall (from the truth of who we are). This is the world that is coming to an end, OUR LUSTS! Because it is our LUSTS that pull us away from the truth and lead us into temptation.

James 1:14
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed

What is it that KILLS THE WORD OF GOD again? The Thorns which are the CARES OF THE WORLD that strangle the truth of God.

Mark 4:19
And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful

This is what Christ (The Truth and Way and Light) destroys with the brightness (enlightenment) of Christ’s (power and wisdom of God) coming (revealing).

Yes the WORLD will come to an end, but the physical world is going nowhere. The only thing destroyed is the OLD NATURE. And it has too, because we are being tempted and drawn away from the truth of who we are because of it. (only a few will catch this next verse)

Psalm 106:14
But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert

Yes it is our LUSTS and our OLD NATURE that is destroyed!

Now there is a lot of talk about this May 21, 2011 date, where they say a Rapture will happen. First of all, there is no Rapture the way people teach, secondly the end is not yet IF YOU BELIEVE IN SUCH THINGS. Because the END is when you put all things under the CONTROL OF GOD. You know that GOD IS ALL IN ALL.

Let’s take this next part line by line, so you can see clearly what the END is!

1 Corinthians 15
24 Then cometh the END, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

The end comes when HE/WE (for we are the body of Christ) shall have the Kingdom of God (righteousness, peace, joy and power in the holy ghost) revealed IN US, and God revealed IN US, when WE enter God’s rest by putting down ALL RULE AND AUTHORITY… in other words, the moment we realize “who we think we are” is NOT IN CONTROL. The moment we realize is, the END OF OUR CARNAL NATURE, the END OF OUR LUSTS (WORLD) is come (revealed to us).

25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

The Power and Wisdom of God (Christ) will rule until all enemies are put under foot. And the last is DEATH. And no, we are not reading about living forever in this flesh body, for we are already eternal. The ENEMY that is put beneath God is not literal flesh, it is our CARNAL THINKING, which is the LAST ENEMY DESTROYED.

Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace

And in that moment all things will be delivered to you, you will understand that everything is beneath you, and you then will put yourself beneath God, so God is all there is. And you will then be set free.

1 Corinthians
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

If you have ears to hear it. When God is all in all, God is all there is. Now that is the END OF CARNAL MAN. But not the END of the physical world. And there will not be any physical rapture. Everything that happens, happens WITHIN the heart of man, and everything outside of man is a projection of that. If anything this world will turn into a paradise when we return within to paradise. Oh how I long to see that day. But as I said earlier, we only know in part.

Yes there are two men in one bed, two women at the mill… This is the double nature of man. The carnal and the Christ. The older and the younger nature of mankind. One is Taken (joins to the truth) the other is left (cast off) – look up the meanings in Strongs, and you’ll see it has nothing to do with being taken from one place physically to another, but being taken from one place spiritually to another. Your older nature you will cast off, to allow the younger Christ nature to rule!

Ephesians 4:22
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts

We need to cast off the OLD NATURE, we have to let go of the belief that WE (OUR CARNAL EGO/WHO WE THINK WE ARE) is in control, and submit ourselves to the TRUE NATURE within us, which IS in control. It’s time we get rid of our ignorance and pray for the TRUTH!

Romans 13:12
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

So don’t worry about a literal this and a literal that. And remember that who we are at our very core is INFINITE! You may be able to say that there is a beginning and end to the SON OF MAN. Our first Lord has a beginning and an end, but our True Lord has none. So in fact the END is truly the END of something that doesn’t really exist to begin with. If it has an end and a beginning, it is created and destroyed. And God is the one who does that creating.

Notice the SON OF GOD is defined very differently. No beginning, No End.

Hebrews 7:3
Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

We have no beginning or end, for God is all in all, so there is never a need to worry about the soul of a lost loved one. Eventually God will bring all to this knowledge, and all will then revealed to be the Child of God an infinite priest.

So how do we get there? Well it is not our doing. Jesus said I go before you to prepare a place for you. Which really was the spark that birthed this article, but as always I go wherever the words lead me. 🙂

You see there is another way of look at these next passages. Read these carefully and for those that don’t like to be challenged, I suggest here is where you should stop reading.

John 14
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

Right off the bat, let me tell you the FATHER’S HOUSE is the TEMPLE OF GOD, which YOU ARE! So let go of that belief that Jesus is a cosmic carpenter building you a mansion. Because that word mansion means tabernacle or dwelling place. And we, all of us, are that dwelling place.

Jesus said he was going somewhere to prepare a place for them. You could say that Jesus was going within all of them (the father’s house) to prepare them. Which is why he says, where I am there you will be. In other words, Christ In you, and You in Christ… BUT, something greater clicked for me.

Now let me share how I see this passage, and I will simply translate it as I see fit.

“We are all where God dwells, if this wasn’t true I wouldn’t tell you that. Now I am going to God to learn more, to understand more, so I can prepare a way for you to understand how to do the same. And if I go to this place of enlightenment then I will be able to reveal this to you, so that where I am spiritually you may be also. And then where I went spiritually you will know, and the way to get there you will know, because I went there first and relayed this great truth to you….”

Now this is where Thomas comes in and asks the big question. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Thomas is saying, we don’t understand where you are going, how then can we know how to get there….

The great revelation comes in Jesus’ response.

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Notice Jesus said, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE, no one comes to the Father but by Me… He DOESN’T SAY he that believes that I am the way, the truth and the life can get to the Father…. What he is saying is UNLESS YOU BECOME ME, AND ARE WHERE I AM, GO WHERE I GO you cannot COME TO THE REALIZATION of the Father. The only way to know the FATHER is to be THE SON.

John 1:18
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

The SON is in the Bosom (instruction/leading/teaching) of the Father.

Isaiah 40:11
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

And HOW DOES THE SON declare the FATHER?


7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

The SON declares the FATHER by saying, if you have UNDERSTOOD BEING THE SON, then you will UNDERSTAND THE FATHER, and then he says because I GO TO THE FATHER (The perfect understanding and Union with God) you have known God and seen God, because in that day, the SON is put beneath the FATHER and GOD IS ALL IN ALL.

Now, I’m not going to go into much more detail about all of this, but I want you all to understand that if YOU GO TO THE FATHER, you will RETURN AGAIN and help others do the same. You will be able to lay the groundwork for them, and the work God has already done within them will bear witness and you will be able to be where The SON is also. And you too will understand that it is not FAITH in a Son, but BECOMING THAT SON that you begin to know the Father and salvation.

So go to the Father already, and I promise you I am going with you, before you, or after you, because there is no way to the Know the TRUTH without the TRUTH becoming you!

P.S. for those who want more information on why the literal physical Rapture is not true, here is a video I did awhile ago which does explain more of it. But there is also more information on this website as well. Enjoy, Jacob

Much love, Jacob

    I know I keep writting you how God’s love is ministering me threw your essay but He is truly using His love in your heart to open my heart and mind to the truth and I thank Him for you and others that teaching the truth.

    Love in Christ Daniel
