|1 John 2:17||1 Corinthians 10:11,7:31|
11 Now all these things happened to them as examples; and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world have come.2 [Note! the ends of the world "have come" is past tense. The end of the world is a personal experience that occurs when you have crucified your sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial.]
31 And those who use this world, as though not absorbed by it and with indifference; for the present form of this world passes away.4 [You are to be in the world but not of the world. From the Word of the Lord within: "Stand apart from this fast paced world; you can't be in it." Friendship with the world, (and people of the world), is enmity with God. James 4:4. When you enter the Kingdom, the world passes away to your sight and consciousness.]
20 Teaching them to observe all the things that I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the world."2 Amen. [So, his true disciples are supposed to be teaching us to observe all his commands; but Christendom ignores all his commands. The disciples are not still alive on the earth waiting on the end of the world; this statement makes no sense, unless you realize the end of the world is a personal experience — as it was for the disciples — for they saw the end of the world. When you have been crucified, and the world has crucified to you, Gal 6:14, the world ends as you step into a different parallel dimension, the Kingdom of God which is within and around us. The world passes away from our sight when the Kingdom is entered.]
38 The field is the world, the good seed are the children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of the wicked one.
39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the world, and the reapers are the angels.
|2 Peter 3:10-12|
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.1 [On the day of the Lord, the appearance of Jesus, the world passes away and disappears, along with its lusts and desires, 1 John 2:7, you remain on the earth, but your sight and consciousness is in heaven, as you are translated into the Kingdom Heaven; those upon whom the ends of the world have come. 1 Cor 10:11]
11 Since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons should you be in all holy conduct and godliness,
12 While waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of Christ,2 in which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? [Notice! If you can hasten the coming of the day of God, then obviously it is a personal experience. Waiting for God hastens the day of Christ , when Jesus appears in a purified heart, when you are translated out of the physical dimension to the Kingdom of Heaven; the world passes away and disappears. 1 John 2:7. To wait on God is to listen, watch, and obey.]
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth had passed away; and there was no more sea.1
|2 Corinthians 5:17 |
17 Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.5 [To be in Christ is to be an entirely new creature; the world and all its things have passed away from your sight. From the Word of the Lord within: "If anyone is standing with a new heart, he is a new creature. To be in Jesus is to be in truth. He who is in my name is part of my body." When you are in Jesus, or in truth, or in his name, you have been freed from even the desire to sin, translated into the kingdom, in union with Him, and sitting with Jesus in heaven under his full control of your words and deeds. Anyone who claims to be in Christ when they are not crucified is taking His name in vain; or doing anything while stating you do it in His name or in the name of Jesus is also taking His name in vain.]
