The Transformation of Humanity. What a wonderful thing to consider!
The hoaxers of our Earth have contrived their biggest lie concerning the transformation of humanity. They foolishly maintain that the human race is being transformed through the Inevitable Progress of Evolution. The progress of Evolution, they maintain, will force humanity to transcend its earlier nature. The human race will thus be rising above all its inherent faults— cruelty, wickedness, violence, greed, selfishness, and the like— all by the natural progress of Evolution. Natural Evolution is proclaimed to be the Impersonal Device which will upgrade the Earth and bring about a major transformation in the human race.
That is blatant nonsense, and nothing could be farther from the Truth.
The Science-Truth of the matter is this:
Our God has His Own system of Transformation and Development, which works quite differently from the human theory of Evolution. Our God has a Developmental Program for Earth which focuses first on the transformation of individual humans, and then on the larger-scale matter of a worldwide transformation for the Earth.
First, God desires to see a spiritual revolution in the individual human being. God Almighty seeks to bring about the transformation of individual humans through the work of His Holy Spirit within their hearts. This often brings about a miraculous change for the individual human, and a great improvement of circumstances for other people with whom God’s transformed person has daily contact.
He has been accomplishing that aim in millions of human hearts over a period of many centuries. He has already had considerable success in that area.
Second, God desires to bring about a worldwide revolution, a transformation that will greatly modify the entire planet Earth. This is what we have not yet seen... a Rebirth of the planet Earth which is still in the future. The Old Earth will eventually be discarded and replaced with a new paradise that is to be called the New Earth. God has designed for humanity a system of Divine Election that He will utilize in the grand transformation which He has planned for the entire planet Earth. It is a crucial part of the long developmental process by which God will salvage the best souls of Old Earth and accomplish His own long-range goal for humanity.
God will have success in this part of His Plan too. He can see the End from the Beginning. His goal for the Earth will ultimately be accomplished and will be made visible to all eyes as humanity beholds the wonder of His Return. In His Re-entry appearance, He will appear as a brilliant light in the midst of a black sky, and He will suddenly descend to the Earth as all eyes behold His coming.
God Almighty accomplishes His will in all things; He cannot do otherwise. God’s Plan of Salvation will be accomplished, and His New Earth will be populated with all those souls whom He has rescued through the millennia of their existence on Old Earth.
Eventually everyone on Earth will behold the glory of Christ’s Return, and with a sudden explosion of Light, the world will be transformed. God The Son, the Creator of our Universe, will then easily bring about an awesome transformation that He has long planned for this planet. The old Earth will disappear, and Christ will make all things new as He produces His glorious New Earth for the Chosen Remnant that He has saved.
God has always planned to save His own Chosen Remnant of people from Old Earth, and these saved spirits will become the residents of His New Earth. God Almighty is constantly harvesting the Earth, and the souls that He has saved over many centuries are destined to become the seeds that He plants in the garden of His New Earth.
God’s system of Divine Selection is a developmental program that stands in complete opposition to the evolutionary theory of Natural Selection. Throughout all the millennia of Earth’s history, God has been harvesting the Earth.
Throughout these millennia, God has employed His system of Divine Election to good effect. It is a system by which God is ceaselessly selecting and rejecting from among the peoples of the Earth. Our home planet has been a testing-ground for thousands of years now: There has been a long, millennia-consuming process of testing, selecting, and rejecting.
The Evolutionary Belief is that the strongest survive, and thus there is a survival of the fittest. God’s own system of salvation works quite differently, and it is being based on the virtues of faith and loyalty. Those who have faith in God the Father are loyal to His Son Jesus Christ, and these are the ones who will “survive” the apocalyptic destruction that is yet to come.
The spirits of the Chosen Remnant are destined by God to “survive” the wickedness of life in this current world, and these will become the only residents of God’s wonderful New Jerusalem. They are the ones who “survive” the evils of this present world, getting to see the wonders of the New Earth.
Living Christians of today’s world— those who currently live in this world and are still alive to see the Rapture— will also get to experience the miraculous environment of the New Jerusalem and the New Earth. They are the real “survivors” of this evil world in which we all currently live.
In our God’s Developmental Program for Earth, there is a survival of the loyal, rather than that misconception of “a survival of the fittest.”
The ones who are loyal to God are the ones who will survive the destruction of this present Earth, because it is only they who are fit for Heaven and for Christ’s New Earth. In that sense, it actually is the fittest who will survive the chaos of our present Earth.
But in our God’s Program for Earth, it is not the strongest who survive, but rather the submissive.
Those humans who know God and are submissive to His Will are the ones who will be fit to receive the New Earth. It is they who will inherit the New Earth. And it is they who will know the comfort of an Eternal Presence with the God of Heaven.
There will indeed be a great Transformation of Humanity, but it will not be the one which the hoaxers of Earth have been forecasting.
The Transformation of Humanity will be an astounding event that God Almighty has brought about through His Developmental Program for Earth.
Now you know the difference between the Science-Fiction of Humanity and the Science-Truth of God Almighty, Who is the Creator of Heaven and Earth.
God Almighty has revealed Himself to Earth in Jesus Christ, and it is He Who makes the Father known to us. We have seen that our God is the Creator of the Universe... a God of True Science... a God of Science-Truth.
This tract is just one part of a rather long lesson series dealing with the God of Science-Truth. In it, we try to help you see why you should have faith in the truthfulness of God. You can get further instruction also in the other tracts of this series— or you can get really brave and start researching the Bible for yourself!
When your read the Holy Scripture of the Christian Bible, you are hearing God’s Words, His own communication to you, and you hear also the Words of God’s Son, the Christ. He is the Creator of our Earth, and He is the Word of Truth. He is our best teacher, a guardian of that True Knowledge which we humans greatly need to hear.
You’ve heard the evolutionary explanation of Universal development for a great many years, with all of its elaborate details... ever since you were a child. You’ve surely encountered its advocates in every arena of the academic world and in every arena of everyday life. Its proponents are everywhere, and they have already proselytized much of the Earth. You are doubtless thoroughly accustomed to that way of thinking.
But what is the Biblical scheme of Earth's history and direction...? It’s the alternative explanation that God has given us in His Holy Scriptures.
A lot of people on our planet, even some Christian theologians, have tried to make the Bible compatible with their own evolutionary beliefs. But can that really be done? Such people reduce Biblical history to insignificance beside the enormity of their faith in the grand Theory of Evolution.
The Bible paints a very different picture concerning the history and future destiny of the Earth, and it is quite at odds with the beliefs of those who have faith in Evolution.
In the Holy Bible, God offers you a different and superior view of Earth’s development and its future fate. From the Holy Scriptures of the Bible we learn that Jesus Christ makes known to us the great secrets of the Universe— secrets not revealed on Earth from the time of Creation until the time of His arrival on our planet.
Here’s the Truth about the Universe, its progress, and God’s ultimate goal for the human race... the establishment of a paradise that God plans for the people of the Earth...
What is the Biblical scheme of Earth’s history and direction?
It’s a long-range plan by which God will transform and re-populate the planet Earth...
It's a vision of vast scope and mind-boggling predictions...
God's developmental plan for our Universe is an astounding program of transformations ...!
Here are 20 stages of ascent that should lead you to a genuine comprehension of your purpose and destiny in the Universe. These will help you to reach a higher level of consciousness, a lofty place where you will better understand of the history of the Earth and God’s goal for humanity...
1. A theme of WARFARE runs through the many books of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. We see evidence of angelic warfare, of historic military warfare between God's chosen people and the ungodly nations.
There are predictions of further warfare between the elect of Christ and the anti- Christian forces, and of a final great battle of Armageddon.
SPIRITUAL WARFARE devastates this planet until Christ's Kingdom comes !
2. A theme of APOCALYPTIC DESTRUCTION and RE-CREATION runs through the books of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. We see this in the Genesis record of Noah and the Great Flood, and in the predictions of the Old Testament prophets.
Jesus himself speaks of this in great detail as he is quoted in Mat. 24, Luke 17:24-37, and other places in the gospels. There are many such references in the epistles, and the final book, John's Revelation of Jesus Christ, is devoted almost exclusively to this subject.
3. A theme of the SURVIVAL OF A REMNANT who are loyal to God runs through the many books of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation.
4. Rather than the Darwinian concept of "natural selection" and "survival of the fittest" (meaning the strongest) in a scheme of evolution, God's system of development is quite different!
God's plan is that there will be "DIVINE ELECTION" of all those who have chosen to accept His system of grace and mercy through Jesus Christ, and His plan calls for a "SURVIVAL OF THE LOYAL" instead.
5. In this scheme which God Himself has formulated, it is not the STRONGEST who survive, but rather the SUBMISSIVE!
(In this regard, it is certainly true that God can make the weak person become strong. But a person who is too strong and egotistical God may choose to crush, in order that he— or she— will be humbled and will become submissive to the will of God!)
6. God is continuously harvesting the Earth as His ever-progressing plan of DIVINE SELECTION goes forward, through a wise and millennia-long program of evaluation— through interminable testing of people and a very lengthy developmental process of SELECTING and REJECTING.
7. Thus, a theme of DIVINE SELECTION through a LONG-RANGE, millennia-spanning DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAM becomes evident.
8. This calls for a MAJOR SHIFT IN THE WORLD-VIEW that is held by any individual.
It truly requires a COPERNICAN REVOLUTION IN THE MIND-SET of a human being.
9. You must comprehend with an entirely new way of looking at the Universe— for to be among the redeemed, to be among the survivors who are granted eternal life with God, you must place JESUS CHRIST AT THE CENTER OF YOUR UNIVERSE, in the very place where once YOUR OWN EGO had ruled supreme!
You need to put the Sun of Heaven inside your heart! Once He is there, He will illuminate your mind and all areas of the Universe with the bright Light of His Presence. His Light will be radiant in your face, in your life, and your actions. Just as Moses’ face was radiant after he was in the presence of God, the follower of Jesus reflects the brilliant Light of the Lord Christ! His Holy Spirit will be inside you forevermore, making you aware of His Lordship and His Truth... giving you eternal access to His Divine Wisdom.
10. To be among the rescued, you must be a part of the Chosen Remnant of humanity that God will save from the Old Earth. A person must first become a believer of God, one who believes all God's words (His open communication to the human race), as revealed through Holy Scriptures and through God's only true Son, Jesus Christ.
God will show us mercy and forgiveness of our sins only when we come to Him through the sacrificial death of His one true Son, Jesus. God has made provision for grace (leniency and forgiveness), but He offers it to us only via the substituted sacrifice of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
11. Jesus has willingly agreed, already, to receive all your preordained punishment, in order that you may be spared from the Judgment fate— a destination in Hell. That punishment is what a person's sinfulness will otherwise deserve. . . and it will be found inescapable. . . at the great Judgment Day of God, when God will ultimately evaluate and judge the deeds of all souls.
12. Any soul can be spared on the basis of God's own painful sacrifice, by a belief in the salvation God offers through His chosen Messiah, His only-begotten Son Jesus Christ.
Those souls that are spared will be the ones that have opened the door of the heart and have allowed Jesus Christ to come inside. Through His Holy Spirit, He can take up residence inside you as the New Center of the Universe. . . as a brilliant light at the center of the spiritual "solar system." After that, everything in the Universe will revolve around God in an orderly and logical fashion. The progress of the Universe, and of God’s Plan for it, will from that time forward seem logical and orderly to your mind.
13. Are you still living as the only focal point of an Earth-centered universe? It’s time for you to stop making this Earth the center of it all!
Could a Christ-in Revolution change your mind-set. . . and establish instead the reality of a God-centered Universe?
You can move away from humanism if you so desire, move on to a higher level where you worship the True God, the Creator of our Universe. Do you really believe that Man is the center of all things... the measure of all things? God is the One Who will ultimately measure and evaluate the deeds of every human being!
You need to put the Sun of Heaven inside your heart. Jesus Christ is “the Sun of Righteousness,” and through His Holy Spirit, He can put some of His righteousness inside you. More importantly, God credits the follower of Jesus Christ with the Holiness and Righteousness of His Son. You need to place Him on the throne of your heart, declaring Him to be “the Sun King” of your life!
14. The brilliant light of Jesus Christ can give you an "internal guidance system" for your heart. . . and this will provide orderly direction for the "planetary system" of your personal worldview.
When you put Jesus on a throne in your heart, He provides a warm "sun" for that great void in your internal universe, and it will then burn continuously to dispel all the darkness/ coldness that would exist there without His presence. After that, you will have a logical "solar system" for all the interactive elements of your life.
15. Those souls who are not to be spared on this basis (those who have rejected God's words, His truth, His light, and His sacrifice) will suffer eternal separation from God. They will be cast instead into what Jesus calls “the Outer Darkness.” They will be forced to endure an eternal separation from God and God's final achievement— the recreated Paradise that will then be revealed as His ultimate objective.
This will be a NEW EARTH produced by God for all those persons whom He has rescued (or harvested) from the present world. God will populate it with those He has chosen through His millennia-long DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAM of DIVINE SELECTION.
16. This is God's final goal— His objective is to produce an entirely different world, a new and totally restructured world that will be vastly superior to this present world of distress and disorder, of countless evils and sin-produced chaos.
It is certain that the NEW EARTH will be immensely more pleasant than this present one, which will eventually be rejected and replaced!
17. You gain an Eternal Life with God when you put the Sun of Heaven in your heart. You can do this by placing Jesus Christ, Who in the Trinity of God created our Universe, upon a throne at the center of your heart! He deserves that position and that kind of respect. He was first God The Son, but when born in human flesh He became the only sinless and righteous person who ever lived. Yet He sacrificed Himself on a cross for your sake, taking all guilt and sins upon Himself— for you and for me, for all people everywhere— so that whoever wishes for salvation might be rescued from the due punishment of sins.
18. If you will do this, you will gain a new contentment and peace as you accept God's organizational plan for the Universe. . . because you'll be letting God be the Ruler of All Things in this world. . . and in your own life.
The Sun of Heaven will then reign in your life as the supreme Power that governs all things. The Bible calls Jesus Christ both “the Sun of Heaven” and “the Sun of Righteousness.” When you place Christ in your heart, He will lead you to a new life of righteousness. The Holy Spirit will start to rebuild you in the image of God, making you more like Jesus. You’ll become a brother (or sister) to Jesus Christ!
19. All it really takes is a simple but sincere little prayer— one that you should make up in your own words. The prayer for deliverance and for God's leadership should come from your own heart!
Some important elements that you might include are:
1) your desire to turn away from the wrongness or evil of your past life, and your remorse over the sins of your previous life,
2) your desire for God's forgiveness and mercy through the act of sacrifice of His Only Begotten Son (Jesus Christ),
3) your desire to know God's leadership in your life,
4) your desire to learn more of God's truth through Bible study,
5) your desire to find fellowship with genuine believers.
After accepting forgiveness through Jesus Christ, you must sincerely seek to turn away from evil, to the best of your ability; and you must further seek to gain knowledge of God's will through a diligent study of the Holy Scriptures of the Bible. Also, you must not neglect to maintain a fellowship and communication with God through the device of daily prayer.
20. This Sunday, don’t just worship the sun, like the followers of Baal, the Roman polytheists, and the pagans. You shouldn’t worship nature like the pantheists and the animists. The supernatural does exist, because God’s Spirit is above and behind the natural world... and superior to it. So don’t worship the sun and the stars like the naturalistic science advocates, the humanists, the evolutionists, and many of our modern-day science-fiction fans!
Don’t go out to worship the sun and stars this Sunday. Instead, go out to a good Bible-believing church and worship the Holy One Who is the Sun of Heaven— Jesus Christ, Who is both the Son of God and God The Son. Jesus Christ is the Sun of Heaven, and He is the Light of the World!
When you accept Jesus into your heart, His Light will transform your own mind and heart. Your purpose and goals will be changed, because you’ll want other people to learn about the good news of Jesus Christ’s resurrection. You’ll want to share the light, and you’ll want to worship the Sun of Heaven in a house of God!
This Sunday, bless the Father in Heaven by honoring His Son, of Whom He is very proud.
Jesus said of the people of God that "The kingdom of heaven is like a net that God has cast into the sea, and it gathers of every kind: When it is full, it will be pulled up on the shore, where they will sit down to sort the catch, and they will collect the good fish in baskets, but the bad things will be thrown away. This is the way it will be at the end of the world: The angels shall come forth, and they will separate the unrighteous persons from among those justified by God. . ."
Excerpt from the Book of Matthew, who was a constant
companion of Jesus and his devoted disciple [13:47-50].
Jesus spoke of the people of God as being like a seed that is growing secretly, saying, "As for the kingdom of God, it is as if a person should cast seed into the ground; and then he sleeps, and he rises up night and day to see that the seed is springing forth and always growing up, although he knows not exactly how. The Earth is bringing forth fruit from itself; first the blade, then the ears of corn, and after that the fullness of the ears of corn. And when all the fruit of the Earth has come forth, immediately God will use the sickle to reap the fields, because the harvest-time has come."
Excerpt from the book of Mark [4:26-29].
It's also important for all of us to remember this:
1) WE SPEAK TO GOD by our prayers.
2) GOD SPEAKS TO US by the words of Holy Scripture.
So we must try to read His words and His Book just as often as we possibly can!!
God wants to bless you for all your long efforts to understand this very confusing and difficult Universe in which we live so let Him reward your search with the grace of His forgiveness and enlightenment!
