The definition used here for expiation is: the means by which atonement is made with God; restoring friendship and harmony after an unrighteous offense.
Our beliefs have been handed down and given to us by men who likewise received handed down beliefs. Why do we continue to walk in the ways of our ancestors, worshipping idols (icons) and believing the same superstitions and lies? The time has come to turn from those false beliefs and superstitions of the past and return to the original teaching of Jesus. Wisdom now summons us to use our mind and "think" for our self. Isn't it time to seek and become more "participating" in our own learning?
Take courage and walk away from those superstitions and doctrines of men. Follow no man, organization or religion. Learn about this evil world and the evil soul. Follow the teachings of Jesus and pluck the mote out of your own eye so you can see clearly. Remember who you are, where you are, and why you are here. "The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity, and shall cast them into outer darkness." (Matthew 13:41) And do not confuse yourself with the notion of "taken out of context", Jesus plainly states in John 18:36, "My kingdom is not of this world."
Who has bewitched you? Not I; not your neighbors; not your parents or family; but your very own soul. Two-thirds of our brothers and sisters remain on Other Earth, waiting for us to turn from eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (soul) and return to the Righteousness of Life on Other Earth. They are ready and waiting to see us through our time of reparation.
The time has been fulfilled and the teachings of Jesus have been restored. Repent: change your mind and become righteous once again. Read, study, learn, apply, experience, understand, realize and become born again. Do what Jesus says to do; reading Romans 2:13, "Not the hearers of the word are justified before God, but the doers of the word shall be justified. Not every one shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these teachings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken unto a wise man." (Matthew 7:21,23,24) Paul said it differently in his letter to Timothy 2:37, "Ever learning and NEVER able to come to the knowledge of the truth."
Jesus says, "My kingdom is not of this world. I came to call sinners to repentance. There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. Search the scriptures (Old Testament) for in them you think ye have eternal life; but they are they which testify of me. Moses gave you not that bread from heaven, but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. God is a God of the Living, not of the dead. Why do you not understand? Because you are of your father the devil(soul) and the lusts of your father you do. I have overcome this world. This world hates me because I testify that the works thereof are evil. I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me. Learn of me, for I am meek and lowly of heart (soul)." (John 18:36; Mark 2:17; Luke 15:10; John 5:39; 6:32; Luke 20:38; John 8:43-44; 16:33; 7:7; 5:38; Matthew 11:29)
Jesus came to set the stage for the end time. If this world had understood the teachings of Jesus there would have been forgiveness and not revenge; there would have been understanding instead of hatred; there would have been kindness and not selfishness; there would have been sharing instead of greed; but this can never be for that is not the design of this evil world.
If we are not in heaven, where are we and why aren't we there? We tell you now, you are in the Wicked One's world of deception, his Trap, but God has made it an place of purgatory, a place Jesus has created for your expiatory purification and an opportunity to return home. Repentance and remission of sins is for all people in all nations. You are a witness to the beginning of the end. Now has true judgment been revealed unto this world. The time has been fulfilled and herein the mystery of the ages revealed: that the cause of all evil in this world is the soul. Once you understand let no one lead you astray again. "Whosoever is born of God, overcometh this world." (1John 18:36)
Even the greatest seerer of the Old Testament could not understand the truth: that the truth should be sealed up until the end time, when men shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased: reading Daniel 12:9, "And he said, Go thy way Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end."
If you do not understand, is it because you are not seeking? Do you not search the scriptures? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of this evil creation. Understanding is revealed when the various passages, scattered throughout the New Testament, clouded by synonyms, punctuation and paraphrasing, are put together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. For once the pieces are found, and put together correctly, the knowledge revealed makes sense as never before. The Bible, although not complete, was written by men who knew the truth and had to hide it: reading John 21:25, "There are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written."
We came into Life on Other Earth as minds with wills, capable of making the right choice. We were perfect in Righteousness from the moment we were created until we allowed iniquity to enter into our thinking. We allowed our heavenly mind to become polluted and we sinned against our brothers and sisters, before God. And what's sin? Sin is the transgression of the law of God. And what is the law of God? The law of God is that thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, and to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
These teachings of Jesus brings an awakening; a realization which opens the door and brings us to an understanding that we must change our mind and become righteous followers of the Law once again.
"There was a war in heaven"; (Revelation 12:7) a rebellion, and we were cast out "because thine heart is lifted up and thou said, I am God". (Ezekiel 28:2). We opposed the Law and exalted ourselves above all that is called God. We lifted up our voices against our brothers and sisters as being greater than them. We sought to 'rule-over-others' in heaven. We used our mind to make the wrong choice of trying to rule over our brothers and sisters; to set ourselves above the others. Our thinking became twisted, warped, distorted and perverted. Can you imagine, much to our surprise, when suddenly we were cast out by a higher power and found ourselves in the outer darkness of the Pit?
We were taken out of the way, and cast out of Other Earth because we desired to rule-over-others. We dared to think we were better, smarter, more beautiful and more powerful than others. Look around at this planet; isn't that the common theme of life here? Isn't it to rule over others, to control others, to boss others, to be better than others, to get ahead, to get? Can you not see that this is the same behaviour that got us cast out of heaven? Look at your self, at your own sphere of life, can you not see it in your own make-up and the make-up of those around you? Look around at this evil world; at how we are behaving. This is what we tried to do on Other Earth when we sought to rule over others. Do you understand? Setting our selves above others got us cast out of heaven, and is keeping us from returning.
When we seek to rule over others we become the slaves of soul. The desire to rule over others is the root of all evil: money is a means to that end here. And so we have been given that which we desired, a place where we can rule over others, except we all being of the same desire, has resulted in this earthly world of great evil. Look around this planet. Do you not see men and women seeking to rule over others? Do you not see the more powerful ruling over others? Do you not see the more beautiful rising above others? Do you not see the more intelligent getting rich off the labour of the less intelligent? Do you not see people seeking fame and fortune, craving power and control? The same "war" that happened in heaven is continuing down here!
We fell from grace and cannot be restored until we understand and correct our self. Our lofty looks shall be humbled, and our haughtiness shall be made low; because we exalted our selves we have been abased. This world was created by the Wicked One as a prison, to hold us here for his desires, but the Living God has made it a place for our self-correction, to prepare us to return home to Other Earth. We who rebelled against the Righteous Way of Life were removed. However, because God is pure love, we have been provided with an opportunity to learn from our unrighteousness against our brothers and sisters and return home. Can you see the fulfilling of the 'Law of God' by providing us with a way for redemption?
We came from Other Earth and eventually we shall all return; some who were cast out first will be last, and some who were cast out last shall be first. As Jesus plainly states in John 3:13, "No man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man." Other Earth, Jerusalem above, is the mother of us all. (Galatians 4:26)
To those on Other Earth we are a lesson not to be learned the hard way. God is no respecter of persons. God is unconditional love and thus spared us who sinned. God cast us out into the darkness to be reserved unto self judgment; an example to any who might consider the ungodly.
We fell from grace and cannot be restored until we understand our self and correct our self. It takes time to regain our original righteous state of mind. It requires hard work and time. We must use the will to resist the wiles of soul and make the right choice every time. ("Will" is the determination to see something through to the end while resisting any and all temptations to quit.)
The soul causes us to "doubt". The soul has subtly injected its' self into our mind to make us believe that its' desires are our desires, that its' voice is our thoughts. The soul is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and it uses both good and evil to conceal itself and deceive us. We have been coupled to a soul but given an opportunity to make our self righteous again. While the 'Way' was lost, herein has been fulfilled the promise to bring the mystery of God to light again in this the end time; to prepare and make straight the Way for the second coming of Jesus' teachings. Go and do not let the soul cause you to sin anymore. Make your self whole; of one mind.
