I am in the process of writing a short book that is an overview of the theological system of the Church of Philadelphia.
The manifestation of the sons of God in the saints of Philadelphia arising in the light of God’s glory requires that we see, know, and understand the breadth the length and depth and height of the love of God so “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth” (Philippians 2:10)
First, the scripture declares that there was darkness.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
There can be no darkness in Heaven – God is Light.
Darkness is clear proof of sin, death, hell, and satan in existence. The kingdom of darkness is the kingdom of satan. Therefore, the kingdom of satan (sin, death, and hell) was already in manifestation.
The devil and his angels had already fallen.
God’s statement of “Let there be light” was in direct correlation to the darkness… and the devil and his angels in hell (the darkness).
Did God say, looking upon their faces, “Let them spend time unending in hell”??
Did God evidence in what He said any form of malice or despite for the angels who became sinners??
God said, “Let there be light.” God spoke redemptively in direct correlation to the fallen angels.
Then God made the Genesis creation and mankind.
The Light of Heaven was above.
The darkness of hell was beneath.
When God said, speaking into the darkness where there was no light, “Let there be light”: the Foundation Stone of Jesus Christ was laid.
Where was the Foundation Stone of the Genesis creation laid??
In the light of Heaven above??
Or in the darkness of hell beneath??
Well, “Let there be light” was a statement commanding light to be made manifest where there was not light.
Therefore, God the Father sent Jesus Christ to descend into hell as the Light to form the Foundation Stone of the Genesis creation. This is inherently redemptive towards the fallen angels.
We have seen the grace of God in declaration that where there was darkness as God looked upon the fallen angels, God said, “Let there be light”.
Now let’s go to John 1 to see what God says of this beginning in Genesis:
Genesis 1:1-5 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
The scriptures show that Jesus, the Light, descended from the heights of Heaven into the depths of hell when God said, “Let there be light”.
The scriptures show that above was Heaven and below was hell.
The scriptures show that God the Father looked upon the faces of the fallen angels in hell and looking at them said, “Let there be light.” And Jesus descended into hell. And the light shineth in the darkness.
So, in brief, God created the company of angels. It is stated by many interpreting scripture that perhaps 1/3 fell. They were holy angels – the sons of God – first. Then they fell.
And immediately in display of Amazing Grace, God the Father sent Jesus Christ the Light into hell after them. Saying, “Let there be light”.
And God created the Genesis creation with the Foundation Stone of Jesus Christ, the Light that shineth in the darkness. The Foundation Stone was laid at a core location in hell: a core location of darkness in the depth of hell previously manifesting the heart of satan. The heart of satan had been drilled in power in the core of hell. The devil thought the core of hell was as immovable and implacable as his own darkened heart and will. Yet, the devil was displaced there. Jesus Christ entered and became the Chief Cornerstone of redemption and recreation anew. Jesus occupied and took position sent from the heart of goodwill of God the Father.
Jesus descended into hell, occupied, and took possession of His appointed position as Chief Cornerstone.
The Light shineth in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.
Until one sees that the heart of God in sending Jesus to create the Genesis creation was a redemptive and merciful act in love for the fallen angels (who were originally created as holy sons of God at the first as angels)… one cannot comprehend the full extent – the breadth, the length, and depth and height of the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 3:14-21 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
And to those who may protest, “Jesus Christ did not come to earth to be made a man to save angels! Jesus Christ was made a man to save all mankind!”
To you, I reply, “Amen”.
Jesus Christ is God made a man who as a man was made and became the Savior of all mankind.
But what you may not yet see, know, or understand is that God created man to make all angels human; and the race of man is the race of angels made human (male and female) even as God Himself was made the man Christ Jesus.
When the core of hell and the heart of satan in hell is displaced by the heart of God in the Light of Jesus made the Chief Cornerstone… can we not all see the end from the beginning??
When we hear God speak into hell unto the faces of the fallen angels, “Let there be light” and Jesus replaces the core of hell as the Chief Cornerstone of the recreation of Heaven anew in the Genesis creation… can we not all see the end from the beginning??
When we see how it began and understand the displacement of satan the darkness with replacement of Jesus Christ the Light as the Chief Cornerstone… can there be any doubt that sin, death, hell, and satan shall be fully destroyed??
When we see how it began… can we not see that all angels are coming home to Heaven washed in the blood of the Lamb, saved, healed, and delivered – redeemed as humans – then restored bodily as holy angels in redemption of their bodies as the elect shall also be one fine day??
1 Corinthians 15:24-58 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead? And why stand we in jeopardy every hour? I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: and that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: but God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: it is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: it is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
The Alpha is the Omega.
The Beginning is the End.
God bless you!
Love in Jesus,
Apostle Laura Lee – Church of Philadelphia
