The Crushing Rock

By John Thiel, mp3

Scripture Reading: Romans 16:25 Now to him that is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which hath been kept in silence through times eternal,

Our scripture reading we have just read holds the key to unlock the summary of our conference topic that when the trumpet angel is to sound the mystery of God should be finished. What is the mystery of God that should be finished at the sounding of the seventh trumpet?

Romans 16:25 Now to him that is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which hath been kept in silence through times eternal, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

The mystery is to be finished in the seventh trumpet in which we are living at the very end of. Way back in all eternity of the past before any creation, the Godhead planned to create. His plan to create posed a potential disaster. Why should He create when He knew that there could and there would arise a defection among the created intelligences? He would create no robots but intelligent minds who had power to reason and to choose. With that freedom to be given to living creatures, it was in inevitable that something would arise. He knew ahead of time.

God had a knowledge of the events of the future, even before the creation of the world. (ST March 25, 1897).

What is the security that could be provided to prevent a universal implosion? This is what Apostle Paul wrote;

Romans 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

Ephesians 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

3:9 And to make all [men] see what [is] the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

It was the eternal purpose that when the stage of action arrived in which there would be an insurrection in His created beings and intelligences, that there in His purpose Christ Jesus our Lord would be in place. In His divine foresight and purpose, as it has been unrolled before our own eyes, the reality of all the prophecies that we have taken into view, there was the provision and the manner in which that provision would deal with the insurrection.

Angelic perfection failed in heaven. Human perfection failed in Eden, the paradise of bliss. All who wish for security in earth or heaven must look to the Lamb of God. {OHC 45.4}

God who created angelic perfection failed in heaven. God who created human perfection in Eden and it failed and God knew it could and would. At the failure of perfection, He had placed His Son to meet it.

The plan of salvation, making manifest the justice and love of God, provides an eternal safeguard against defection. {OHC 45.4}

Over the vast expanse of eternity of the past from before all creation, God in His infinite patience has waited. If you have a secret in your heart and you can see the unfolding events, you wish you could burst out with your secret and let everyone know. Can you see the infinite patience of God? As the failure of perfection unravelled before Him, He could have burst it all out and said, here is the answer and indeed He tried when He said in Genesis 3:15 that there would be enmity between the serpents seed and the woman’s seed and the woman’s seed would bruise the head of the serpent. The word was intonation of Gods mystery hidden. Can you imagine the sense of God who would have had as He wanted this to be prevented but He couldn’t as He is not a dictator? He had to keep this in silence until the reality of the circumstances would unfold and as they unfolded He tried to bring it to the attention to the angels and they all fell down and worshipped before Him as He unfolded to them the reality of his son. He called a counsel of heaven and there Lucifer who had raised the defection stood before God and God had unveiled to them the wonderful reality of His Son. Everybody fell down and worshipped Him and Lucifer did too and then he stole his heart against it. Lucifer could have repented but he stole his heart against it.

A Seed

Then comes man and perfection fails and Gods mind speaks of a seed, a seed in Gods mind has no seed of destruction. In Gods mind there is universal eternal bliss. That is in His mind. If any destruction would arise it would arise from a different seed because there was no seed of destruction in His mind. God is not mocked; He knows where destruction comes from, never from His mind.

Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

What is it?

Galatians 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

The seed of the spirit, the Godhead is only a seed of life everlasting. Reasoning from seed time to harvest, there was no seed that could produce a destructive harvest in the mind of god but a seed came into existence that was a seed for destruction and Jesus identifies it for us.

John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

What was the word identified with in the parables of Jesus? A sower went forth to sow correct? The word of God is a seed and here Jesus said if you continue in my word, the seed that is planted in your heart will produce freedom eternal. The Pharisee’s full of self, full of the seed of the serpent, spoke and said;

John 8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? 34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: [but] the Son abideth ever. 6 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 37 I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. 38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.  39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, [even] God. 42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

What’s the seed? The seed of evil is in the father of it. What is that? Be not mocked, he that soweth to the flesh will reap what? Death, corruption and that is the hard fact that where there is evil, it will produce its harvest. There is not the least seed of evil in God, not the least. In the mind of Lucifer germinated the seed and it would produce its harvest, death and destruction. You behold it at Calvary. The seed of the everlasting covenant arrived at Calvary.

John 12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.

In Gods great majestic everlasting covenant, it says the hour is come.

John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

The hour has come that the everlasting covenant seed would come into action. The seed of Jesus Christ which was what every seed must do. It must perish to produce life. It is the exact opposite of hurrying for life and wanting life by grabbing for it. He that loveth his life shall lose it. The true seed of eternal life was here manifested. Jesus the seed of life to destroy the seed of destruction.

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

The seed of evil would be bruised and destroyed. How would he do it? By the very principle of the dying the seed.

Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Are you picking up the interaction of Gods profound mind? He had planned all this out before any living creature was created and the seed of corruption and evil would need to be destroyed so that it would not destroy and implode in His creation. How would He do it? He would come in the very seed of the earthen flesh and partaking with that seed of earthen flesh that seed would die. By dying with that earthen flesh what would happen? In the mind of every onlooker, in the mind of the universe, it would be seen that the seed that was in Lucifer would be destroyed and people would be set free.

By causing the death of the Sovereign of heaven, Satan defeated his own purposes. The death of the Son of God made the death of Satan unavoidable. Satan was allowed to go on until his administration was laid open before the worlds unfallen and before the heavenly universe. By shedding the blood of the Son of God, he uprooted himself [from sympathy], and was seen by all to be a liar, a thief, and a murderer. {CTr 14.5}

In the act of causing the death of Jesus Christ, Satan’s power was destroyed. By the shedding the blood of the Son of God. The seed of eternal life had to die to destroy the seed of destruction and evil. The contrast to this point was this statement;

The cross is in direct line with the shining of the divine countenances, so that by beholding the cross men may see and know God and Jesus Christ, whom He hath sent. In beholding God we behold the One who poured out His soul unto death. {OHC 45.5}

The only way in which we can know God is through the cross which is in direct line with the shining of the divine countenances plural. Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is only at the cross that you can find the direct line of the mentality of God. Thais the reason why we need to study the detail of that cross. Oh what a shallow representation that Christianity has pointed to at the cross. Oh what a heartache it is to me to see people uplifting the cross and it means nothing in reference to what this is saying. My heart bleeds when I hear ministers even of the church from which we have just come from in the General Conference conveying a shallow representation. I nearly fell through the floor. What is contained in the cross is so deep. It is the fathomless revelation of God himself.

We need to look beyond the man hanging suffering physically on the cross. Mel Gibson did that very well and his pictures were portrayed before the General Conference mind and I could not believe my eyes. That was declared to be the simplicity of the gospel. I’m sorry, we need to know what came in 1888. We need to know the enlargements of the cross of Jesus Christ that was couched in the mind of the eternal God and was revealed there if the Holy Spirit illuminates the mind. The cross is direct line with the shining of the divine countenances so that by beholding the cross men may see and know God and Jesus Christ whom he hath sent.

Behold

In beholding God, we behold the one who poured out his soul unto death. The destroying power of Satan takes root in humanity and refuses the covenant as Lucifer did. There at Calvary the Pharisees like Satan became a predator. Are they not predators?

By shedding the blood of the Son of God, he uprooted himself [from sympathy], and was seen by all to be a liar, a thief, and a murderer. {CTr 14.5}

God sees that the same course of action is being pursued the world over. Men and women come to the place where the road diverges: it is either right or wrong. Thousands upon thousands clothe themselves in what they suppose to be an impenetrable disguise, and choose the wrong. God does not force anyone. [and neither should you or I, there is no seed of force in God.] He leaves all free to choose. But He says, “By their fruits ye shall know them.” The Lord will not write as wise those who cannot distinguish between a tree that bears thorn berries and a tree that bears olives.—Manuscript 57, 1896 (Manuscript Releases, vol. 18, pp. 361-363). {CTr 14.6}

Where are you? Can you discern? When you discern, which path will you choose? By rejecting the very seed of the everlasting covenant, people refuse to build on Christ. What did Jesus forecast?

Matthew 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

How long had God waited for Israel to take hold of the true seed? They rejected it until the very seed of Jesus Christ came and they rejected him. What did they reject? They rejected the everlasting covenant. In so doing He says, whosoever shall fall on this stone the everlasting covenant, shall be broken. He will do what Jesus did. He will die and not hold onto life.

Matthew 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

He identified for us those who refuse the everlasting covenant and those who receive it. How was this prophecy fulfilled when He said whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken? How was this fulfilled to the Jews?

The Seed We Need to Understand

We cannot know how much we owe to Christ for the peace and protection which we enjoy. It is the restraining power of God that prevents mankind from passing fully under the control of Satan. The disobedient and unthankful have great reason for gratitude for God’s mercy and long-suffering in holding in check the cruel, malignant power of the evil one. {GC 36.1}

The seed of destruction is being held back.

But when men pass the limits of divine forbearance, that restraint is removed. {GC 36.1}

When it is withdrawn, what happens?

God does not stand toward the sinner as an executioner of the sentence against transgression; {GC 36.1}

He hasn’t got the slightest seed of that in His mind. There is no seed of destruction in the mind of God.

God does not stand toward the sinner as an executioner of the sentence against transgression; but He leaves the rejectors of His mercy to themselves, {GC 36.1}

The rejectors of the everlasting covenant. Isn’t the everlasting covenant his mercy?

but He leaves the rejectors of His mercy to themselves, to reap that which they have sown. Every ray of light rejected, every warning despised or unheeded, every passion indulged, every transgression of the law of God, is a seed sown which yields its unfailing harvest. The Spirit of God, persistently resisted, is at last withdrawn from the sinner, and then there is left no power to control the evil passions of the soul, and no protection from the malice and enmity of Satan. The destruction of Jerusalem is a fearful and solemn warning to all who are trifling with the offers of divine grace and resisting the pleadings of divine mercy. Never was there given a more decisive testimony to God’s hatred of sin and to the certain punishment that will fall upon the guilty. {GC 36.1}

Not that God is the executioner, but that punishment is the malignity, the power, the cruel unchecked harvest of evil. God has no smidgen of destruction in him.

Dark are the records of human misery that earth has witnessed during its long centuries of crime. The heart sickens, and the mind grows faint in contemplation. Terrible have been the results of rejecting the authority of Heaven. But a scene yet darker is presented in the revelations of the future. The records of the past,–the long procession of tumults, conflicts, and revolutions, the “battle of the warrior . . . with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood” (Isaiah 9:5),–what are these, in contrast with the terrors of that day when the restraining Spirit of God shall be wholly withdrawn from the wicked, no longer to hold in check the outburst of human passion and satanic wrath! The world will then behold, as never before, the results of Satan’s rule. {GC 36.2}

You and I today are seeing it. The first world war, second world war and all that surrounds it. Cruelty much worse than ever before and it’s going to get worse. How will it consummate? God does not prevent the fruit to produce itself, He only holds it back until everyone has their opportunity but when He lets go of those winds of strife that the angels are holding back, what and how will it consummate? In the light of all this, these words become more vivid. Notice how it’s connected with the covenant made with the Jews and they had their opportunity but because they rejected it, they were destroyed in Jerusalem. That is a precursor of the end.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The desolator will ultimately be desolated by the consummation and we are gaining a clear picture that the consummation is the final harvest of the evil that bears its fruit. He, the abomination that makes desolate will be desolated by its own desolating nature. This is clearly portrayed. One predatory to the other. Hasn’t that been the case all through history? What was the cry in Daniel 8:13? How long shall all this go for? The daily and abomination making desolate, how long? Until the sanctuary is cleansed, until the consummation. The rock that they would not fall upon, the very one that Satan destroyed himself on that bruised his head, that same rock as the consummation arrives, has now become the body of Christ the church, the temple, the mountain.

As we saw in the death decree study, that last and final desolating attack upon the temple of God, that same rock that was being attacked and destroyed and desolated by the predatory nature of evil, there it stands finally purified by the work of the latter rain. By the experience of Jacobs trouble and by their purity they are attacked by the predatory nature of evil. Evil is a predatory seed that grows and hates everything that is pure. As the predatory nature of evil in its last attack upon the very rock, the mountain that it has attacked all through the ages, it will simultaneously destroy itself.

Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

See the predatory behaviour even upon God himself?

Daniel 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy [it] unto the end.

The very work of the judgement. That’s why it said unto the 2300 days. What was meant? As the message of the judgement hour affects God’s people , they are being purified. As this is taking place, simultaneously the predatory nature of the evil one is working its own destruction as it did upon Jesus.

Daniel 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy [it] unto the end. 27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

In the sounding of the seventh angel the mystery of God should be finished. The judgement shall sit and they shall take away his dominion and consume and destroy. What is meant? Gods people as they repent and confess as they are being purified during the time of the seventh trumpet and the nations are angry, as they are being purified and the wickedness of the evil is attacking them right through to the death decree, what were they doing? They were consuming and destroying the power of the evil one until the consummation. Judgement shall sit and it was the working of the judgement and it will consume unto the end. That is what is meant when Jesus receives His kingdom during the judgement. The consummation of the churches hope, the closing of the everlasting covenant is revealed when the judgement is complete and Jesus leaves the sanctuary. How?

Revelation 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

What’s that? How does He smite them? Does He smite them in the same way as the wicked smite each other? How? By the sword that comes out of His mouth. What’s that? The word of God.

Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which [sword] proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Everything that was written would happen that was spoken by Him and He is sitting on horseback with the angels doing what He did all through history. In Daniel 11 Michael and Gabriel coordinated the history of the world by man’s own predatory behaviour. Here comes the grand finale of the predatory behaviour because what do we read in reference to the burning of this beast? Why are they burning? During the time of the 1260 years, what did God put in their hearts?

Revelation 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

The Ten Horns Will Burn the Papacy

For the 1260 years the kings of Europe coincided with the papacy but what does verse 16 say?

Revelation 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

Who burnt her with fire? The hatred and predatory nature of evil did it. They hated her and they burned her with fire. This is God’s orchestration. He will permit to happen what will happen but to restrain it He orchestrates to cause things to take its course so that it all happens in the right time. This is a profound mindset of study in the word of God that changes the whole picture of everything you have ever read.

Jeremiah 25

Study Jeremiah 25 and you will see that all the nations including Israel who have this predatory nature will destroy each other. This is the manner of all of the destruction as it was prefigured in the destruction of Jerusalem. What has caused the destruction of this planet?

Isaiah 24:4 The earth mourneth [and] fadeth away, the world languisheth [and] fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. 5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

They will be destroyed by the brightness of his coming. Those who are left that He can take, are also there.

Isaiah 24:19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

Why? Because they have broken the everlasting covenant. The seed of evil will bear a harvest. It will destroy not God, yet God is orchestrating its destruction. This is how you come to know God through Calvary.

Psalm 9:15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit [that] they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

When Jesus was in the pit, who provided the pit for him? Sinners. He came into the pit and for all who would accept, would be lifted out by Him. Is He an executor? He has no seed of execution in His mind.

Psalm 9:16 The LORD is known [by] the judgment [which] he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

This is repeated in Psalms 7.

Psalms 7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. 15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch [which] he made.

This is the wicked, read it in context. We are right on the zenith of the consummation and its period of dealing like this because this happens at the time of the end of the death decree and it extends over the thousand years. Satan is left on the planet he has destroyed and after the thousand years there is a resurrection of all his cohorts and he deceives them again because it is written, if the wicked were given a place in the land of the righteous, they would still destroy because the seed is in them. They haven’t let it go so He will demonstrate that after the thousand years.

Satan Loosed

Revelation 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

He takes them to battle. Hasn’t He learnt? Didn’t he know when he crucified Christ he was going to throttle himself? Still hasn’t learnt. He still deceives the nations and says, there is the city of God we can take it, I have the multitudes on my side. He gathers them together to battle.

Revelation 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom [is] as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The fire from heaven. If you go into the detail of that and the study of God’s word, it is the fire of their own arsenal that will devour them and God will punish people intelligently. He will add a fire which will meet out punishment according to sin. Justice, not just any kind of punishment just to be burnt up writhing around in anguish when it’s not fair. God is very fair, man isn’t. When man does his own destruction taking the city and destroying himself in the process of it, God sends down fire from heaven to make sure that he who has done much will receive many stripes and he who has done little, will receive less stripes. That is the intelligent fire.

Satan’s Fire

This is the full blown picture of the seed of evil destroying itself totally.

Ezekiel 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never [shalt] thou [be] any more.

What will happen? This evil nature that grew to a harvest in Lucifer will do what to him? You know what it’s like, when God reveals to you your sins you are burning inside are you not? It is there to purge you if you will. Lucifer was given many purging messages which he rejected. After his supposed destruction of Jesus Christ he continued to work against the body of Christ and all the mind activity and all the malicious planning and destruction of this seed of evil gets heated up. As he comes through to the end and he thinks he has the billions of people on his side, he thinks I’ve got you, I’m going to take the city and all his mind activity as these people finally turn upon him as well, which God brings about will finally implode within him. That which could have happened to the universe happens to him.

Romans 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen.

The stone that was passive, bearing humbly all the abuse heaped upon it, will then lift itself in life and power above those who despised and rejected it. They will see in this their rock of offense, an avenging mountain falling upon and crushing them. {3SP 41.2}

The stone that was passive, how long oh Lord are you so passive? How long are we going to behold passive Christians permitting themselves to be desolated right up to the death decree? As the death decree is made and a date is set, passively they cry pleading for God and the very destructive nature of the wicked culminates in Armageddon. It Culminates in man suffering under the wickedness of his own planet when darkness is suddenly let loose. Man’s own destruction upon his planet will catch up with him.

The Final Consummation

The people who have been bearing together with Jesus in a passive manner, the mountain that is gentle that does not destroy will come down as a destructive crushing rock in a manner that is so different to our imagination. The drama of evil is finally consummated. What God had in His mind before He created any living creature, the God who has no violence in him, will arise in glory and by evils own fruit, He will be glorified. All those who left in the universe who have not been self destructive will be forever secure because that which God placed into position has now come to fruition entirely.

Naham 1:7 The LORD [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. 8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies. 9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.

Why? Because all that are left in the universe have discovered the mystery that had been kept in silence and He could only let them know by letting it play out.

The cross is in direct line with the shining of the divine countenances, so that by beholding the cross men may see and know God and Jesus Christ, whom He hath sent. In beholding God we behold the One who poured out His soul unto death. {OHC 45.5}

The plan of salvation, making manifest the justice and love of God, provides an eternal safeguard against defection in unfallen worlds, as well as among those who shall be redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. {OHC 45.4}

The drama of evil has been permitted to show Gods true character. The everlasting covenant that was long stored in the mind of God has reached its total consummation. Let us bow and worship.

Amen.
