Those were the words that angels sang on the night that Jesus was born. This time of year people around the world think about Jesus Christ birth, even though many know that his birth did not occur on December 25th, but they are really celebrating a pagan holiday.
But they get so caught up in the Christmas spirit that most people even don’t pay attention to why Jesus came and what are the meaning of the words that the angels announced at his birth. Why would his birth bring great joy and peace to humanity? And with ever increasing violence and trouble on earth now why would this give us comfort and hope in that promise?
Because Jesus Christ was born and died to put the Evil One Satan the Devil out of existence a promise that was given all the way back in the garden of Eden. All through the centuries God’s people were looking out for the birth of the Messiah. The long awaited Savior promised to bring relief from sin, disease, trouble and death restoring humans back to the perfect state they were created as, and supposed to live was finally born. (See previous post on : “Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent acts of insanity or a mental disorder”)
Now that he was finally here the angels were singing and announcing that at last the Savior did arrive giving all people on earth the wonderful hope that now the Messiah was here God’s purpose for the restoration of Paradise on earth and human perfection is guarantee to take place.
This would bring joy and peace even now before it actually takes place, and even more so when it is finally fulfilled. Is it coincidental that the Evil One has struck again just around the time of the year when most people do think about Jesus Christ?. Now that his end is very close he is doing all he can to destroy the human race and get their attention away from God’s Kingdom, of which Jesus is the main King.
Before I go on I want to first send all the families whom lost those innocent children and teachers in death my condolences and sympathy! But more so to share the Biblical truth and hope with them for a better world in which these sad things will not occur anymore. The title of this post quotes from the Biblical promise and how they can see their children again right here on earth.
I listened and saw all the news reports and the interfaith services and the comments from the clergy and even the President, but not one person has mentioned anything worthwhile about God’s purpose, offered any real comfort and hope to these parents and families, or answered the constant questions everyone is asking: ”Why did all this happen?” Why? Why?”
Do you really believe that God the Creator, and lover of the human race has to kill little children in order to take them to heaven to be angels?
But instead I kept hearing the same lies, that God has called the children home to be angels in heaven! And the murderer was suffering from mental illness! So according to the opinions of the majority because they don’t believe in the truth, every time Satan and his demons possessed someone to carry out his evil aims to kill humanity, it is not murder, he is just mentally ill!
So this would also mean that all the terrorism and killings that are taking place around the world, and even men in the past like Alcaida, Hitler and others, were not Satan’s murderous evil agents, but just mentally ill, they didn’t know what they were doing. (See previous post on “Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent acts of insanity or a mental disorder”).
And the Creator of the human race and God of love is going to call a evil possessed young man with enough assault guns to wipe out hundreds of people for no reason, and send him to a elementary school to kill little innocent children just to take them to heaven to be angels? This mass murderer used several bullets to kill each child, it was complete brutal slaughter of innocent children.
If this kind of teaching is true then according to the religious leaders and their believers God is to blame for this mass murder of young children and teachers so why all the fuzz, this is a good thing then! And what about their parents? What kind of God would rip little children away from their parents just to be angels in heaven?
How can intelligent people really believe such disgusting religious nonsense? Don’t people see this is complete blasphemy against the Most High himself inspired by the Opposer and Hater of God and humanity? Satan is the Ruler of the world (Bible books of John 12:31, John 14:30 and John 16:11), and controls all the world’s religions and governments that is the reason they cannot tell you the truth or offer any comfort and hope.
They are not God’s agents for teaching the truth, but filling your minds up with sheer lies and falsehood! But still they are pretending to be so concerned about the victims and their families with their hypocritical words: “Our thoughts and prayers are with you”. Prayers to Who? Not the true God!
The problems we are faced with today are spiritual problems, it all started as a spiritual problem, disobedience to God, and can only be solved in a spiritual way by obedience to God
It is in times like these that we see how spiritual dark and sick this world really is. It is just as the Bible says at 2 Corinthians 4:4 in speaking about the Opposer, Satan the Devil calling him the God of this system of things how he has “blinded the minds of the unbelievers that the good news about the Christ might not shine through.” People are spiritually blind and sick, with no knowledge of the true purpose of life or hope even though it is written right in their own Bibles.
Mostly because their religious leaders have not taught people the truth, or explain them why there is so much hatred, evil and violence in the world. You could see so many sincere people flocking to the church for the memorial of these children hoping to get answers to their questions: Why, Why, Why? And they got nothing, but the same lies as mentioned above. As Jesus said about our time period people would be like sheep without a shepherd their leaders not giving them any real spiritual direction or hope.
About two months ago I explained all this in the article or post entitled: ”Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent acts of insanity or a mental disorder” and the following one on ”Developing a keen sense of observation could save many lives.“ Please read those again if you haven’t done so already because I started all the way from Genesis following each historical step first from the creation of Adam and Eve, how evil was born in a good angel who became the Opposer and hater of God and the human race, Satan.
How death was introduced because of this rebellion when Eve disobeyed God’s instructions by listening to Satan and was later followed by Adam. In Genesis 3:15 God foretold that He would send a Savior or Messiah to save dying humans and restore Paradise and human perfection again, by putting the Evil one Satan the Devil out of existence.
Billions of angels were already in heaven long before the creation of humans on earth. Job 38:7 mentions how they shouted in joy and applauded after the creation of the first humans on earth and they are always spoken of as Sons of God, never as children. (Genesis 6:2) So God doesn’t need people or children from the earth to be angels in heaven.
God showed whom the Messiah would come through by giving the faithful man Abraham the promise that by means of his seed all the nations of the earth will bless themselves. (Genesis 22:18) All through history every detail of this Messiah was given so that everyone could recognize him when he arrived, even the place of his birth was foretold. (read previous post: “Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent acts of insanity or a mental disorder“)
All this was for the purpose of getting rid of Satan and his demons, (there were other angels whom also disobeyed God and joined Satan in his promoting of evil among people on earth), also for restoring perfect life, peace and joy to humans again on a Paradise Earth just as it was intended to be from the beginning.
People were never told or promised that they would die and later be taken to heaven. Adam and Eve were created from the dust of the earth to live forever right here. The earth was their home, it was supposed to become a global Paradise, they were given the command to multiple and fill the earth, take care of it and all the animals on it. But if they didn’t listen to God their Life Giver they couldn’t keep on living without this Life Source just as a light would go out if the electrical cord was unplugged from its source.
And that is what happened, after they sinned they began dying and so have all their offspring ever since. But going to heaven was never mentioned. After they sinned God simple told them as recorded in Genesis 3:19: “In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are, and to dust you will return.”
Unfortunately that is where all humans since Adam and Eve sold us into sin and death have gone back to, the dust of the earth, whether they are rich or poor, old, young or children, buried in a fancy coffin, or a plain one, they have all become dust again just as the Creator said they would because of disobedience. But since God knew that Adam and Eve offspring didn’t deserve to die because of their disobedience he promised to resurrect them back to life and give them a chance at living forever on earth as he intended. And that was the purpose of sending Jesus to die to give all people even those whom died because of no fault of their own, a chance at life again.
Millions will be resurrected back to life right here on earth under God’s Kingdom in the coming new world, including many children
But in the meantime our loving God was preparing to reverse all this by sending His son to die and restore the human race back to his original purpose of perfect life on earth. This means millions of those now sleeping in death will be resurrected back to life on earth. John 5;28, 29 says: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgement.”
So without a doubt those children and teachers will be resurrected back to life under God’s Kingdom in the new world of peace and joy. This Kingdom is the arrangement or Government God provided to accomplish this
restoration work and is made up of Jesus Christ and other co-rulers, faithful men and women chosen by God from the earth. Just like any government it is made of a set number of rulers 144.000. (Read Revelation 14:1, Rev 7:4) They are grown men and women, the first selection of these started with Jesus Christ disciples whom were all natural born Jews and with whom he made the New Covenant on the night before he died.
(Genesis 22:18 God promised Abraham that members of his offspring or “Seed” would be the ones to bless all nations of the earth by means of this Kingdom). (read ”Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent acts of insanity or a mental disorder”) Later after the Jews as a nation rejected Jesus as the Messiah, God’s invitation and selection of members for the Kingdom was extended to anybody from any race or nation whom was humble enough to take in instruction and qualify to be members of this Government.
So God’s Kingdom is made up of natural born Jews, the first chosen foundation members, as well as men and women chosen by God from all nations of the earth to rule as Kings and Priests along with Jesus Christ, over those on earth in restoring humans back to perfection. (Revelation 20:6, Rev 14:1, and Rev 7:4).They have been tested and proven their love and faith for the Creator and his Son Jesus Christ. They are not children, they become spirits in heaven but do not become part of the body of angels.
But were chosen by God, not a decision they made themselves, as some people think they can these days, to go to heaven to co-rule with Jesus Christ as Kings and Priests on behalf of the rest of humans on earth. This choosing started while Jesus was on earth and continued after then until the number was filled. Most of those members are already in that Kingdom ready to go into action on behalf of survivors into the cleansed earth. Only a few are still alive on earth today, before they also will die and go to their assignments. (Revelation 20:6).
Jesus used children as an illustration to show that humble people are the ones whom God chose to rule in that Kingdom, childlike qualities, not proud haughty people.
These are humble men and women chosen from earth because of their faith and love for God and people. They cannot be proud haughty people. Proud people are not the ones whom usually listens to the Bible teachings, or have any interest in spiritual things. So they never really learn the truth because they are to proud and haughty and some of these are the very ones today whom are asking: “Why, Why, Why”?
That is the reason Jesus used children as an illustration to show how God is interested in humble people, childlike qualities. He said in Matthew 19:14: “Let the young children alone, and stop hindering them from coming to me for the Kingdom of the Heavens belongs to suchlike ones”
And in Matthew 18:3 he made it even clearer what he meant, as he said: “Unless you turn around and become as young children, you will by no means enter into the Kingdom of the heavens. Therefore, whoever will humble himself like this young child is the one that is the greatest in the Kingdom of the heavens”.
So teaching people that God took children to be angels in heaven is a false teaching, a lie. The angels themselves are always spoken of as adult spiritual sons of God doing their assigned duties in heaven and working on behalf of humans on earth. They are of a different nature and superior than humans and all work in different assignments doing God’s will in heaven and also on behalf of people on earth. God doesn’t employ children to work in heaven. (Read Bible books of Ezekiel and Daniel, shows how billions of angels in heaven created by God for doing different tasks and working on behalf of humans on earth).
The Creator made families to live together on earth, he will not break families up, especially in such a devastating murderous slaughter to take their children away to heaven. They belong here on earth with their families. But everyone keep asking how can this happen? What needs to be done to stop it from happening again?
Ever increasing lawlessness sign of the last days of Satanic Rulership
Jesus foretold that when the Kingdom was established in heaven, it would be the beginning of the last days for Satan’s world. He was defeated and thrown out of heaven and Revelation 12: 9, 12 says that this would result in great trouble on earth because the Devil is angry, and is intent on killing as many humans as he can so that no one would be alive when the Kingdom finally starts its restoration over the earth. I quoted this scripture in the previous posts on: (Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent acts of insanity or a mental disorder.”)
So here is what it says again Revelation 12:9 “So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. And verse 12 says: “..Woe for the earth and for the sea because the Devil has come down to you having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time”. This angry spirit is what is behind the ever increasing violence and hatred, getting worst as the time gets closer for his being put out of existence. Matthew 24:12 says there will be an increase in lawlessness.
Violence has become the number one choice of entertainment, so people are reaping what they are sowing
Most people today are lovers of violence. They complain when they hear about a shooting that took place, but still go out and spend money to view violence on the Big Screen or watch it on TV. Violence is featured in almost every movie either for Film or TV produced, Video games, Music, Books, Internet sites and other media outlets. Toy guns are produced for little boys to play with, and even cartoon shows for young children to view.
Not just violence but so many shows and movies now featuring all kinds of demonic characters like angry monsters, dragons, witches and strange characters all to do evil, get revenge, win at all cost, fight, kill, kick, promote hatred and desensitize people toward badness. Young children are being bombarded by all this violence and evil being infiltrated into their hearts.
And their spirits their (inner selves) becoming inclined and trained to do the same thing. The motivating spirit is to hate, kill, fight, anybody, it doesn’t matter whether they are old or young. It is the spirit of Satan who hates all people, and pushing people toward self destruction. That is the reason also it is a spiritual problem, and can only be solved in a spiritual way.
Parents have to watch what they are allowing their children to listen, play with, watch, or what they are being exposed to otherwise they could be guilty of allowing evil to enter their homes and influence their children to become just like what they are watching and being trained to do.
Parents are allowing evil to enter their homes through these different mediums, allowing guns, and letting their children play violent games, watch demonic and violent movies or expose them to any of these things in any way is bringing the spirit of the Devil right into their homes and will influence your children to become just like what they are watching and being trained to do. Especially if their is no true Biblical or spiritual instruction being taught in the home, we are seeing the sad results of such. The Bible says at Galatians 6:7: “God is not one to be mocked, for whatever a man is sowing this he will also reap.”
That is what the mother of Adam Lanza the Mass Killer did. She had a house full of guns, and even taught him to use them, besides allowing this young man to play violent video games and who knows what else he was looking at on the internet or even if he was on drugs. He became possessed or fascinated with evil, and so she reaped what she sowed.
Her own well trained in evil son killing his own mother and killing so many other innocent children and teachers besides. You can see how all these young mass killers are motivated by the same Satanic or demonic evil force, as if they are following specific instructions from someone else. They are all bright intelligent young men, they prepare very well for their mission to kill, all dress the same in black, just like the killers in the movies, they have a clever well planned out way to attack and enough weapons to kill as many people they can get away with, and always seem to strike at a time when people least expect.
Will getting more gun laws really stop violence and mass killings ?
Getting guns out of the hands of so many people might reduce the killings, but if some people still have guns hidden in their homes, sooner or later at any opportunity they will use those weapons to kill. Because it is not guns or laws that kill, it is people! As long as people have hearts full of hatred, evil intentions, jealousy or rage they will find other ways to kill their fellowman even if they cannot get a gun.
So the key is teaching children or people how to love their fellowman, changing hearts to be loving, kind, compassionate, and developing love for God and people and hatred for what is bad. That is why I said above it is a spiritual problem. A problem that has to be changed from the inside out.
Laws cannot change hearts, only true love for God and neighbor can. If everyone on earth learns how to love their fellowman from the heart, we wouldn’t need laws, because love would motivate us to not kill, not to steal, fight, or do anything to harm each other. People wouldn’t need weapons to protect themselves from their neighbor because their neighbor will not do them any harm either.
Freedom from all violence is possible only when all people on earth learn how to love God and their fellowman, it is a spiritual solution for a spiritual problem.
Folks, this is the way our Creator intended the humans race to live on this earth, and this is the way it will be in the coming new world under the rule of God’s Kingdom in the hands of the Prince of Peace.
Some people might be saying yes, that sounds like fantasy but it is not possible now. I can assure you that it is possible now because millions and millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses from every racial and ethnic group around the world in over 234 countries and islands of the sea, from their study of the Bible have learned to love God and neighbor and are constantly being trained in being loving amidst a world of hate. They are not allowed to have any guns in their homes, or carry guns on their body or go to war to kill their fellowman. Their children don’t watch violent movies, or play any kinds of violent video games or anything that can teach them to do harm to another.
Even toy guns are not bought for little boys to play with. I was raised in a home as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, my father especially took the lead in teaching us children the Bible from very young, (that is the reason I know all this information as I was asked before, and the reason I am given you some scriptures to read in your own Bible to see the Truth is right there for anyone with a love for what is right to see for themselves).
Every week we had regular family Bible study discussions in our home, as well as attended weekly congregational Bible study discussions with other families of Jehovah’s Witnesses and anybody whom are interested in learning what the Bible teaches and the hope for the future. These meetings are upbuilding Bible discussions on specific topics for building character and teaching proper conduct relating to the particular topic.
They are not dominated by any Clergy, Reverend, Father or Priest (there is no such thing mentioned in the Bible) carrying out a bunch of religous rituals from which no body learns anything, but are like a big family discussing the Bible, and commenting on the topic and how the Bible helps us apply council in dealing with every problem which we all face.
Also there is the Theocratic Ministry School and Service Meeting which trains us to be Public Speakers, and how to talk and treat people, proper dress and grooming, scene study, the study and acting out (mini dramas on stage for everyone to see and learn) different situations that can arise and how we can use the Bible to solve the problem with love, or answer questions people ask. As well as presentation of the Bible’s Message to help anybody whom has a desire to learn.
Everyone, even little children in attendance participate, and give talks and comments, which I still do today and enjoy. (see previous post: Memoirs of a wonderful Beloved Father) I have seen guns on TV, or in magazines, but never seen a real one in my life, and I really don’t know the difference between the kinds of guns that I heard being mentioned. What a pistol, an assault gun, hand gun or rifle is, I have no idea and don’t want to know either.
I have no interest in violent movies, and really can’t stand to see someone brutalize another person or see blood. Even common fighting if such break out anywhere where I am I run away for my life, I get so scared of seeing a person being killed. Many of Jehovah’s Witnesses are single women like myself living alone with no guns for protection, and many of them living in war torn countries surrounded by lawless people and terror.
Some witnesses have had guns pointed in their faces demanding that they get away from their doors when they are out preaching, and just simple wished the person a good day and peacefully walked away, leaving the person dumb founded. No doubt they expected a fight but shocked to see the peace they didn’t expect and the power of God’s spirit in action.
They don’t have guns for protection as some clamoring for gun laws are trying to defend their reasons for having guns. And still we have inner peace, a peace that puzzles many people. This is because after studying the Bible for so many years has prepared me and others for everything that is happening, and I know what the outcome will be, so I don’t get disturbed and keep asking why, why why? Rather I feel more inclined to help people to see why.
Trying to stop violence with violence will only increase it, Jesus said if you live by the sword you will perish by the sword
Those above words have proven so true. Don’t those whom make their living from carrying guns such as Police Officers, Soldiers, or Military people usually also die from the very weapons they carry for protecting people or themselves? If you are depending on guns to protect you, most of the time you’ll also die at the hands of guns.
Also many people who kept guns for protection have ended up accidentally killing other family members with their own guns. While others in a argument with someone who also had a gun died from the other persons gun shot. Or some because of the availability of having a gun in their home in getting in any argument or fight with their marriage mate or someone else in their household have shot them.
While others have used their guns to kill themselves or commit suicide. Isn’t this what happened to the shooter and his mother? Why in the world did this single woman need so many guns to protect her, looks like she was preparing for a war.
Also if young children should find these guns and not knowing the danger of such can end up killing themselves. This happened years ago back in St. Maarten, two little girls, sisters found their fathers gun under his bed while playing hide and seek. Not knowing how dangerous a gun was one of the little girls pulled the trigger and accidentally killed her little sister.
These were two beautiful little girls just five (5) and three (3) years old. The five year old killed her own little sister by accident due to the carelessness of her father having a gun in his home under the bed where little children love to play. He paid a heavy price for that by spending many years in prison, while the surviving sister is now an adult and I don’t know if she can remember or was ever told that she killed her own little sister by accident.
The ever increasing lawlessness and the preaching about this Kingdom is proof that those words sang by the angels that Joy and Peace is soon to be fulfilled on this earth among men of goodwill
Many former violent people whom have studied the Bible and allowed God’s spirit to change their own inner spirit or hearts have thrown away their guns or weapons and now have peace of mind and contentment. So the evil spirit that once motivated them to kill and what the rest of the world is calling mental illness has been replaced with God’s Spirit and they can in turn help other people to learn to love their fellowman. This is the only way people can stop all this violence, by changing hearts from one of hate to that of love, and only the True God can do that.
This educational work is already taking place worldwide, and will continue on into the coming new world when Satan and his demons are removed from this earth. Those whom God allows to survive this coming world change in which the restoration of humanity back to perfection on earth will take place will have to have a love for God and their fellowman, because violence will be no more, only love, joy and peace will prevail.
So the increasing lawlessness now is evidence that the Kingdom of God is soon to start ruling over this earth, and that is the reason those words that the angels sang at Jesus birth can be a source of comfort for those whom are mourning. Because even those whom have died will be resurrected and given the chance at human perfection and everlasting life again right here on this earth, our home.
So if you are a parent or one of those whom recently lost any of those loved ones in the recent mass shooting or even previous ones, your loved children or relatives will be resurrected back to life on earth! It depends on you now to be among those whom will be there to welcome them back home to this earth not heaven! So amidst all the devastating tragedy that has taken place recently, you can find comfort now in those words sang at Jesus birth, the coming King of God’s Kingdom, “Joy to the world and peace among men of good will”, and develop the hope of seeing its fulfillment soon.
