  1. The following practice is based on the premise that in order for Christ’s redemptive work of salvation to be complete, and for Christ to be the Savior of all mankind, salvation must reach to all humans in all places of all times. And for God to be all in all, He must have the authority to save fallen angels as well. In both, the Old Testament and New Testament, sin offerings were made for the atonement of sins. Numbers 28:30. Include one male goat to make atonement for you. Hebrews 5:3. And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. The atonement of sins were made for people before the coming Messiah who were without Christ. And thus, the atonement of sins can be made for those in the afterlife who are also without Christ. Truths that applied to the people of this world can also be applied to the people of the invisible world. Today, it is common practice for the dead in purgatory to obtain indulgence from God through the Catholic Church for remission of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven (C.C.C., X. Indulgences). So, in other words, the Catholic Church intervenes for the individual by asking God, who stores up our good works, to apply some of them in lieu of punishment due to sins. But these indulgences are limited to those who die in the communion of saints – the faithful dead only. The Churches fail to teach the complete redemptive work of Christ. Salvation must reach to all humans and fallen angels in all places of all times. Mark 16:15. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” We must learn to search scripture with the loving heart of Jesus. Lamentations 3:31-30. For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone. Jesus descended into hell for three days to deliver the faithful dead with His sacrificial blood atonement. 1 Peter 4:6. For this reason the gospel was preached also to the dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in spirit. Jesus now holds the keys to death and Hades. The fallen humans and angels in hell can be saved. Otherwise, the redemptive work of Christ would not be complete and we fall short of the glory of God. Revelations 1:18. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades. One of the attributes of God is that He goes unchanging. And Jesus would still hold the keys of death and Hades. He would still be salvaging and delivering the souls of the underworld. This is the one true Son of God. This is the Jesus, Christians and others should get to know. Our good works can be offered up to Christ as atonement for the sins of those in the netherworld. Atonement is necessary because they are the fallen. This completes the work of salvation. To say otherwise, is to cut short the redemptive work of Christ. 2 Maccabees 12:46. Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin. It is all the same for God to free prisoners in this world from their captives as it is for Christ to free prisoners from their captives in the spirit world. Zechariah 9:11. As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit. And Christ will free prisoners in hell through you because of the blood of the covenant He has with you. This is a blessing bestowed upon us by our Lord. And, it is by the power of the Son of God that salvation is carried out. 1 Corinthians 1:18. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. Let’s not fail to see the significance of being able to offer up our goods works as atonement for the sins of the lost souls in hell. Your fallen family, friends, strangers and even angels without God can have their souls restored (salvaged) by the divine power of Christ and be with God, Jesus, the angels, family and friends in heaven. One must be in good standing with God and have the door closed to all unhealthy spirits before atonement will be accepted. Although, atonement is required of us for the forgiveness of the sins of those in hell, it is by the Lord’s sacrifice that the souls of the dead can be salvaged and that heaven and hell are open. Glory goes to Father God and His Son, Jesus Christ. It is a privilege to partake in the heavenly family business of salvation and an even greater honor to work so closely with Father God and Christ in salvaging souls. 1 Corinthians 15:19. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. Jesus is mighty to save and He will stretch His staff down to the very depths of hell to save souls. What I say is true, it has been revealed to me by both Jesus Christ (Son of God) and Father God. 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, In conclusion, this, my friends, is the most loving thing you can do for these poor, lost souls. And, may God bless you for such an undertaking.
  2. Consider for a moment that something you have believed all your life is not quite the way it really is. Can you imagine that? Has it ever happened to you that someone did not tell you the whole truth, or misrepresented the truth, in order to get something they wanted, which they wished to remain hidden? The early Church Fathers suppressed such truth, resorting to alternative "truths." This information becomes apparent when you discover the Books of Enoch and many other Nag Hammadi Scriptures, which were in fact well-known as scriptures until 325 BCE, over 325 years after Jesus. Oral tradition kept these books alive until such time as they were written down. After they were written, Church Fathers excluded them. It would have been too much power for the people to have, especially women. Yet even Jesus referred to the Books of Enoch and other Nag Hammadi writings. Do you want to know what they said? This post, and the ones to follow in this series, address three types of angels, their missions, and how their actions have affected all of us human beings on planet earth. It is a fantastic realization which some of us have already arrived at on their own long ago. It is so fantastic I have dismissed it for years, as some of us have shunned such knowledge, preferring instead to believe, if we ever believed, what was spoon fed to us as children. I always found it interesting that the traditional Christian message came to a stagnant halt on about the sixth grade. After that, the message and the story kept playing on a repetitive loop. The Books of Enoch include: The First Book of Enoch (The Ethiopia Book of Enoch) The Second Book of Enoch (The Slavonic Secrets of Enoch) The Third Book of Enoch (The Hebrew Book of Enoch) The Book of Fallen Angels, The Watchers, and the Origins of Evil: With Expanded Commentary on Enoch, Angels, Prophecies and Calendars in the Sacred Texts Why would these Books of Enoch be taken out of the Bible? Enoch is said to be the one who walked with God, that he did not die, but God took him up to heaven. Then Enoch was no more. He was beloved by God. Jesus referred to these writings. Yet these books, and over 49 other scriptures and numerous other writings, were taken out of the Bible we have today. Why? The Books of Enoch have a different explanation of the Fallen Angels, the Origins of Evil, the mission of the Fallen Angels and that of the Watchers, than that of the traditional Bible. The three groups of angels Enoch mentions are: Good and Faithful Angels in heaven. They use their Free Will to choose good, choosing to align with the Good God of heaven. Rebel Angels who fell through pride with Lucifer mentioned in Isaiah 14:12-17; and Revelation 12:7-9. They amounted to about one-third of the formerly good angels, who were then cast out of heaven in a war with Archangel Michael. The spirits of these fallen ones still roam the earth, since they are not allowed back in heaven. The Fallen Watchers, whose fell through lust in the Garden of Eden, in Genesis 6:1-4, having sex with women, and whose children are the famed giants of old, the Nephilim. Though when their physical bodies died, their spirits did not. Those angels who sinned against the Good God who made them, also still roam on the face of the earth. Still, the Loving God, Father of Jesus, has empathy and compassion on the entire human race, which He intended to be Created in pure goodness. When He saw how His Creation was maligned, through the Fallen Angels, and how they misused their creative powers, He chose to send his only begotten Son to redeem us all. Now for this next part, you will have to allow different, very different reasoning for your consideration. These thoughts and concepts are so revolutionary that I stopped reading them when I first heard them. I had been conditioned to only read and support what I already believed. But that is no way to grow spiritually. I hope you do better than I did when I first heard this information. Keep seeking and questioning why the Church Fathers would not want you to know this precious and accurate information. In this series, I will simply put forth the themes of the Books of Enoch, and many other Nag Hammadi Scriptures, that explain angels and their classifications, as well as the true origins of angels and humans. The Secret Book of John, Nature of The Rulers, On The Origin of The World, The Wisdom of Jesus Christ, The Second Discourse of Great Seth, Three Forms of First Thought, The Gospel of Judas, all Nag Hammadi Scriptures, all say there were two Gods, not one. Technically, there is the one true God of all Creation, who is also the Father of Jesus. However, these books mentioned a god who created humans on earth, who is not this loving God. How did Enoch come to know this information about Creation and the angels, as well as Jesus coming as Savior years before it happened? "And he began his story saying: (I am) Enoch, a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by God, and who saw the vision of the Holy One in heaven, which the angels showed me. And I heard everything from them, and I saw and understood, but it was not for this generation (to know), but for a remote one which is to come." First Book of Enoch 1:2 We are this remote generation. I will explain more on this point in future posts. Enoch told his son, Methuselah, everything God showed him through the angels. This account of our creation by the Fallen Angels, our current state of affairs, and why we have both good and evil inside us, got preserved in the safe vault of the earth over time, until now, for our enlightenment. This gives a different view to many of the parables, such as the good seed which a farmer sows in his field, only to have weed seeds also sown in this field right after he plants the good seed. Jesus uses this illustration also. The farmer decides to let the wheat and the weeds grow together, so as not to pull up the wheat along with the weeds. You have been told by traditional religions*, that the field is the earth, that the good seed is God and the Word of God, and that the bad seed is Satan and all his temptations. You were told you had to make choices between what is good and what is bad. You (all humans) were also told that you sinned by giving in to temptation and choosing evil, or eating that fruit in the Garden of Eden. Then you were told that God punished all human beings for the sin of Adam and Eve. You were even told that the Original Sin is yours. Not so says Enoch. Enoch, (and most of the other books explaining this to us), says that we human beings are the field in this parable. We are Created part good from the good DNA from the good angel Created by the Good God, and part evil since our bodies were created by a Fallen Angel. If the part of us with the bad DNA had that part removed, we would be completely destroyed. So the bad seed cannot be removed from the field of our bodies without lethal consequences. Did you get that? Human beings did not choose to sin in the Paradise Garden as the Church Fathers want you to believe. They had a strong reason for promulgating this story. Rather, Original Sin belongs to the Fallen Angels, a sin that belongs to them alone. This point will be further explained in posts to come. Still, being created with good DNA and evil DNA, we do need to make a choice as to which way we live our lives. This is the constant struggle we have each and every day, whether to choose evil over good, or good over evil, because both are ingrained into our very nature. Looking out at the world stage, many of us are not choosing good over evil. Jesus also explains this very point in our traditional Holy Bible, in John 8:44, when he says, "For you are the children of your father the devil and you love to do the evil things he does." He meant this literally. He was trying to tell us way back when, but so many of us did not want to listen. Don't forget to breathe. Maybe you have known this all along. I did not. For me, it took my breath away. I did not even know if it was safe to consider the possibility, so I stopped studying this for a long while. One thing I know, is to never ever make a decision based on fear. Fear is a dark energy, not from the Good God above, who is total LOVE and PURE LIGHT. But I am still human, and succumb to fear from time to time, when I am not consciously walking in LOVE. We come to realizations and knowledge a little bit at a time, step by step. I only mention this struggle with fear in case any of you out there are in the same boat. I urge you to continue reading these posts as I explain many more false truths that have seeped in to the hearts and minds of most of humankind. How liberating it is to know the truth. We all know the truth when we hear it. Truth simply rings true. Truth has no opinions. * Also, the Creation stories in Genesis in the modern Bible is a compilation of at least three conflicting creation stories from various authors. What the composer (not writer) of Genesis did was to select portions of each to best portray his line of thinking, and omit other important things. There are even more Creation stories from other cultures that were not included in the Bible's version of Creation. *Traditional Bibles have Jesus explaining the good and bad seeds and the field. But remember, Jesus is still using parables and illustrations in trying to help us understand. We are the field he is teaching about. I will explain more in future posts.
  3. Once eternal life is granted to a believer, can they lose their salvation ? I'm talking about when a person receives the holy spirit and is sealed.
  4. True Story When I was a 9 year old boy and loving the Lord, I saw Jesus in all white, dressed as a shepherd on the wing of an airplane while it was still boarding. I erroneously thought that someone was trying to play a trick on me to make me become highly religious. Then I became agnostic and got lost for 35 years. I began hearing, seeing, wrestling with the unseen and witnessing powers of the invisible spirit world. Evil spirits had come into my life as a consequence of my sin. I've lost touch with reality(was deceived) and nearly died at the hands of these devils - both human and demon alike. I've noticed that the humans lose their family and friends. They are scattered throughout the netherworld. They have anger and hatred in their hearts. They are masters at the art of deception. Their evil will not stop without divine intervention and restoration of the soul. They thirst for all that only a most loving Creator can give them. I have discovered that it is the human and angelic condition that we are evil and wicked without God in the afterlife. The soul is in ruins and in need of salvation. 1 Peter 4:6. For this reason the gospel is also preached to the dead, they they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in spirit. Father God reached out to my brokenness and I heard Him say, "the battle against good and evil has been here since the beginning of time." God battles evil by salvaging souls through His Son, Jesus Christ. The Father's voice sounds of greatness not of this world. The room was filled with an ancient scent from a world long ago. God had done this to let me know that He was there in the beginning of man's time. I suffered at the hands of these devils for seven years until I learned that they were real and hence Jesus as well. This is how Jesus had found me to begin my undeserving vocation to be an adopted child of God. He left the flock to find that one lost sheep when I saw Him on the wing of that airplane 35 years earlier. Luke 15:4-7. What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' I prayed to Jesus that He would not leave me here to be evil like these people. He put my deceased mother behind me. And the most loving scent of her holding me in her bosom as a child came over me. Jesus had done this to let me know it was her. He was letting me know that I would be with my mom and that He would deliver me from this evil condition known as hell. I asked Jesus who these spirit were persecuting me. He told me through the Spirit of truth that they were the dead. I could see that they were lost and inquired about them going to heaven. Jesus had sent down the Holy Spirit stopping in front of me and pointing at me. He was telling me that I would make atonement for them. And that He would forgive them of their sins and deliver them into heaven. Glory be to the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. They truly are mighty to save. 2 Maccabees 12:46. Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin. Later, I had a dream were Jesus had removed the anger and hatred from these poor souls hearts. He was informing me that the work for atonement had been done. Then, with His powers going through me, He turned them back because the work could not be accepted until the door to my hearing and seeing them was closed. I am currently working on this. Also, an angel had made himself known to me. I've had many visions and dreams, some arranged by God and by the powers of the higher angels, guiding me away from sin, in truth, toward salvation. I thank God for my sufferings and wisdom gained. I am looking forward to being with God in heaven, seeing these spirits restored, and seeing my mom again.
