These words are not written to draw fear into you; they are written to allow you to let go of your fear. Jesus said faith comes from understanding. Through understanding, our fear will subside, we will be at peace, and only then can a full trust in the Lord come forth. These words are being sent to you so that you may understand. The Lord loves you.
There is more to Jesus coming to Earth, more to His crucifixion, and more to His rising from the dead. This writing will shed light on a great truth.
First, let us understand more about Hell. We think Hell and final judgement are the same. We are brought up with the concept that “bad people go to Hell”. This is true, all bad people do go to Hell. But what many do not realize is that there are two judgments (two deaths). Our first death is referred to as Hell, and the other death is referred to as the final place or “Lake of Fire”.
“Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” -Revelation 20:14-15
Now moving on to the next part: In the beginning of Genesis it speaks about how darkness was on the earth, “Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep…” (Genesis 1:2). Then Genesis 1:3-4, “And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.” We know darkness is evil, Jesus is the light.
We all perceive that here on Earth we are somewhere between Good and Evil for we are. In this place, we see both good and sinful actions carried out by humans. Now referring back to Genesis 1:2-4, God said the earth is covered by darkness and He meant covered by Evil. And “Let there be light” was His eventual intervention; sending light (Jesus) to Earth; and so Genesis is both about creation and His plan for Jesus to come to Earth.
So Jesus came to Earth as the light, and He was crucified and was buried. But many wonder, “Where did Jesus go for those three days He was in the grave?” It is thought that He went to the place of the dead; but there is confusion regarding this topic; and so this question is discussed by many.
To begin to understand where Jesus went for the three days, know that the number three represents completion in Biblical terms. So the three days in the grave represents the completion of the new covenant between us and God; paid for by the blood of Jesus.
Now, up to this point, everything that has been written is acceptable to most, it’s not so unbelievable. But let us transition to something that will challenge most by dispelling a core misunderstanding.
“So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there,” -John 20:4-7
Now, the word “shroud” has much purpose for Jesus, for once He rose from the dead, He left His shroud behind. A shroud is a length of cloth or an enveloping garment in which a dead person is wrapped. What is the symbol of the dead? When Adam and Eve covered their naked bodies; they clothed themselves in a shroud because of their sin; they were dead. And so Jesus left His garment as a symbol that He shed death. But more so, He left His garment behind as a testament to us that we are ones in the land of the dead; we are dead; we are in Hell.
Now you may be confused and rebuff. But know this, “suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended into hell.” See this writing in a new way:
“…he descended into hell; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; The third day he arose again from the dead.” If you can accept that we are in Hell, these writings will be more clear. Do not confuse Hell and “Lake of Fire” as the same place; we have not been judged a second time. Final judgement are those who are cast from this place, Hell, to the Lake of Fire, a permanent place of weeping and gnashing of teeth.
We are the ones in darkness blinded by the one who wants us to remain. We think Evil, or Hell, is over there, but we’re standing right in the middle of Evil’s realm. We are the ones who are on the outside of Noah’s Ark ridiculing Noah as he prepares the Ark to leave this place. We are part of the wicked crowd. The storm has arrived, the rain is falling, and our time is limited. The flood waters are creeping up our legs as we throw rocks at Noah; our own naive souls blinded to the fact that we are about to drown in our own sin.
When Jesus said He did not come to condemn us, and instead, to save us, He said this because we have already been condemned. When Jesus said He will come back to claim His church, He means to take us out of Hell. The protection of God, the light, is protecting us from darkness; darkness which is ready to swallow us up like the waters swallowed up those who stood still as the rains were falling.
The good news is that this place, the place of Evil, has been disrupted by the light that has come to rescue us as mentioned in Genesis. We know we are in a place of both DARKNESS and light which are in battle. We know Evil exists here, but maybe it’s always been here in fullness but is now diluted by the light; the light which has come for a period of time.
After Jesus rose from the grave, Jesus appeared on Earth for forty days. But why forty days? The best representation of the number forty in Biblical terms is epoch, or a time period. But this definition is the best for the context of this writing: “The number forty to the Jews is a number that, when used in terms of time, represents a period of probation, trial, and chastisement.”
Forty days is how long the rain fell with Noah, a time of chastisement, ending with renewal when God guided the Ark to solid ground. Jesus went into the desert for forty days, also a time of turbulence for Jesus being tempted by evil, and He returned triumphant. And lastly, we have forty years that the Israelites wandered in the desert; a time of turbulence for them, but the Israelites were guided by God to renewal in the land of “Milk and Honey.”
Jesus appeared to us for forty days because this is Jesus’ message to us that our chastisement period had begun under the new covenant. Just as Jesus suffered for forty days being tempted, Noah suffered in the ark for forty days, and the slaves suffered wandering in the desert for forty years, therefore, we are to know that we are in our forty day epoch; we are in our period of chastisement and so we are to prepare ourselves for renewal.
Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going. Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” -John 12:35-36
And just as every storm starts with a single drop of water and grows quickly, our storm, our epoch, is growing stronger at a faster pace. Know that now Evil is solidifying because God is slowly withdrawing His protection from around us, and as He withdraws, darkness returns. And those who do not acknowledge Christ, those who do not get on the boat, they will be on the outside swallowed up by the darkness.
Now, further, what is about to be revealed is to let us know the time of darkness is returning. Our forty day epoch is on the 39th day. The ramp is being prepared to be drawn up.
One only has to be familiar with the life of Judas to see depth into what is going on today. So let us see Judas life in a new way.
Judas’ life symbolizes the creation of evil, the solidification of evil, and how God removes His protection from around those who reject the spirit thus allowing Evil to consume the soul; a soul that does not allow the light to enter. Heed the warning of Judas for Judas’ life is the epitome of all souls that reject the light.
“See Judas life and his relationship with Jesus as the story, the real story, of Evil’s failed relationship with Me. Evil and I had a failed relationship just as Judas and Jesus had a failed relationship, Judas betrayed My Son just as Evil betrayed Me, and just as Evil was cast out of the Heavens by Me to Earth, Judas was cast out by Jesus during the last supper. Judas and Jesus coexisted just as Evil and I coexisted. Just as I banished Evil from Heaven to earth (serpent), Jesus banished Judas from His table, “What you are about to do, do quickly”, and as I removed My protection from around Judas, Judas was consumed by evil in his final day, he went mad as He drown in his own sin, and the same will be for those who deny Me through the Son, they will be consumed by evil in the final day. Judas’ life symbolizes the interaction of Evil before Judas was born, Judas’ relationship with my son is symbolic of Evil’s relationship with Me, what is going on in this world today, and what will occur in our future.
My children, it is time, therefore, the foundation of the earth is slowly being withdrawn; many will fall into depravity on a scale that hasn’t been seen in the past. These things are going to become exponentially worse, irreparable corruption, greed, deviance, selfishness, sexual immorality, and violence on a scale that can only be justified by evil becoming more prevalent. These are warning signs to you, my people, that your epoch is coming to a close. My son will soon return to collect the faithful, journey to the Heavens, my place, where Peace will overcome all the lands.”
