Background: I’m a visual guy. My chances of remembering increase slightly when there’s a drawing involved. What I’ve mapped out here is God’s plan from the beginning before time to the end of time. Right now, we’re locked in the “B” world, the one which Paul implores us to “wake up from your drunken stupor...” (I Corinthians 15:34)
Comments: Genesis 1:2 is typically translated “Now the earth was formless and empty...” but it can also be translated “Now the earth became formless and empty...” Since God often does things in triple sets, having an “A, B and C” world makes sense, each with its own set of natural laws. The “C” world, for example, won’t have a sun or any sea. Gold is transparent. The curse has been removed. (Revelation 21, 22) There will be no death, no decay. Blood won’t be needed anymore. Everything is light.
Nobody knows for sure when Satan was cast down to earth except Jesus, who admits in Luke 10:18 “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” The “A” world seems a likely time for Satan’s plunge. After all, Genesis 1:2 says “darkness was [my note: already] over the surface of the deep...” Revelation 12:7-9 describes the war in heaven while Isaiah 14 describes the pride that led to his downfall. That pride then infected us all once Satan tempted Eve with the killer hook “you will be like God.” (Genesis 3:5)
The “A” world may have been similar to Eden pre-fall. Psalm 104:2 says God “wraps himself in light as with a garment.” Adam and Eve, as God’s image, were beings of light too. When Satan was conducting interviews for each person’s script, Ezekiel 28:14 says Satan “walked among the fiery stones.” That’s us! Our speech was a digital sort of communication– without interference, perfectly transmitted. Looking to the future (and the past, as the clothesline theory indicates) Zephaniah 3:9 says, “For at that time I will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech.”
Here’s an outrageous proposal. What if there had been a “chosen nation” in the “A” world called the US? Could that be why the bible makes no mention of the US in bible prophecy in the “B” world and why Israel now occupies chosen nation status?
The “B” world is made up of atoms whose substance blinks in and out of existence. First they’re a visible particle, then they’re an invisible wave. The world’s building blocks are mostly empty space. (An atom’s spaciousness is equal to a golfball inside a football stadium.) Solomon, the smartest man the world has ever seen, said it best in Ecclesiastes 1:2, “Emptiness, emptiness...all is empty.” The “B” world seems solid because our senses are blunted. We’re blind to the very small and the very large. It’s as if the world were made of swiss cheese and we’ve got thick mittens on our hands. We try in vain to feel for the holes.
The “B” world’s life source is found in blood. Blood that cries out from the ground. Blood that is supposed to be sacrificially shed by animals without defect and ultimately, by one human without defect–Jesus. Leviticus 17:11 says “For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar.” The biological information driving this tremendous life is encoded in DNA. The cosmic information driving everything is encoded in the Word.
It’s all about Israel. Jesus was, is and forever will be Jewish. Gentiles, slow to recognize their Jewish roots, are included only by the grace of God.
