“34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?” John 10:34. I have so far reasonably outlined God’s original plan for man to rule the earth and be a god of this world so to speak.
When Jesus was talking to the Jews who did not even believe in Him, and who wanted to stone Him because he “blasphemed”, in their view, being a man, He made himself God. Jesus reminded these non-believing Jews, that it was written about them, that they themselves were gods: “33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?” John 10:33-36.
God’s plan for man spoiled:
I have previously covered how Satan like man being a free will moral agent, abused his free will by choosing to rebel against God and swaying one third of the angels to join in his rebellion. Well, Michael and other arch angels silenced the rebellion but Satan could no longer be in heaven nor maintain his status in heaven.
The book of Revelation Chapter 12 verses 7 through 17 states the following about this rebellion: “7 There was war in the sky. Michael and his angels made war on the dragon. The dragon and his angels made war. 8 They didn’t prevail, neither was a place found for him any more in heaven. 9 The great dragon was thrown down, the old serpent, he who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 10 I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, the power, and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ has come; for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night. 11 They overcame him because of the Lamb’s blood, and because of the word of their testimony. They didn’t love their life, even to death. 12 Therefore rejoice, heavens, and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and to the sea, because the devil has gone down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time.”
13 When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 Two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, so that she might be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 The serpent spewed water out of his mouth after the woman like a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream.16 The earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon spewed out of his mouth. 17 The dragon grew angry with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep God’s commandments and hold Jesus’ testimony.”
After the rebellion, Satan and his emissaries were ejected out of heaven and they found themselves homeless on earth. At this point man had been coroneted as the sole ruler (god) of this earth. (To Be Continued in Blog 8)
God’s Plan for Man Reinstated: (To Be Continued)
Model Prayer: Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord. I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. Dear Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. I am sorry for my sins, and I ask you to forgive me, wash me with your blood, and give me your Holy Spirit to teach and guide me. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
If you believed and prayed the above prayer, you are now a born again child of God.
