There's A Whole Lot  MORE  To The Story Than You Might Think!

 

Christ Jesus made some incredible claims, some outlandish claims. Whether or not people believe His claims, Jesus said and did things one might expect the Messiah to say and do. And, the crucifixion did not take Jesus by surprise. It was the main reason God sent Him on His necessary, but horrific, mission.

Notwithstanding, some events took precedence before the ultimate completion of His mission. The vindication of His Father's name during phase one of His mission and the reconciling of the nation Israel back to God, with the latter still to be resolved, during phase two.

Christ Jesus' earthly ministry began with His fasting and with His temptation by Satan in the wilderness.

That episode is proof that NO! human being is immune from attacks by Satan!

No one except the Holy Spirit is exempt from testing. And, why HE is exempt remains a mystery to be revealed.

We know Christ Jesus was severely tested as no man has ever been, but God the Father was tested as well.

"My words were tested in the heavens, My Word was tested on earth."

God the Father Almighty spoke and the Universe came into existence. He fashioned it His way; in righteousness, order and beauty. All of the universe was created to worship and praise Him.

Within His universe free-willed, intelligent, extremely powerful beings were created with ranks, appearances, abilities and purposes to serve certain specific roles, and they even possessed the ability to procreate.

Known as the "Host of the Lord" they consist of Cherubim, Seraphim, an Archangel, Living Beings and myriad Angels.

The one being most prominent in God's creation was an anointed Cherub named Lucifer. Who, having the seal of perfection, was spectacularly attired. And he shined brightly, both in his colorful visual aspect and in his vast wisdom.

Lucifer questioned the absolute reign of God Almighty. Asking: "Is God who He says He is, deserving of all praise and adoration, incessantly and perpetually?" Meanwhile, Lucifer was not oblivious to some of the other host's admiring glances and their sense of awe directed at his appearance, abilities and exalted position.

The omniscient Lord God, perceiving iniquity within the Cherub's heart and perceiving the innate frailty of created beings who had free-will and the ability to decide things for themselves, made the decision to place Lucifer in a prominent position that would nearly rival Him. God appointed Lucifer the guardian of His throne, anointing him as the "Cherub that Covers."

Prov 30:5

Psalm 11:4-7

Psalm 18:30

Col 1:16-17

Eze 28:13

 

 

Eze 28:15

 

This sounds like a dangerous move on God's part except He knows that His word ultimately needed to be tested, to go through the grind of a fiery ordeal in order to be found pure and perfect. Not until every one of God's created beings was given a clear choice to make up their own mind as to whether they would continue accepting God's authoritative word, confirm in their heart whom God says He is, consider themselves able to object should they wish to do so and be free from a dictatorial backlash after weighing all alternatives, not until then would God satisfy the essence of His spoken word.

But how does God reasonably present His creation the opportunity of making their choice in a just manner? The only possible way is to permit an adversary who can test His declarations. Someone who possess great ambition, someone big enough to desire rulership of the universe, someone whose ways run in diametric opposition to God's ways.

The Lord is a Man of His word and even if a scintilla of what He claims is found to be flawed, He ceases to be who He says He is. If His creation is tainted, the throne is weak, the King of the universe could be accused of becoming a corrupt ruler, a cosmic dictator, every act would be justifiably questioned. But up until the moment when Lucifer began to oppose God, the Host of Heaven had never been exposed to evil, they understood God the Creator's ways, there was no opposition, resistance or conflict in a realm of the eternal; there had been peace, joy and happiness in a perfect existence.

Is God's word worthy to be trusted?
Worthy to be worshiped?
Is God Himself worthy?

His word had been personally untested, unquestioned, unchallenged. God's word was His bond.

The epic, unfolding drama will shake the foundations of the universe in such a way that all creation will be tinged and greatly affected. God, Himself, will personally bear the brunt of an all-out assault on Him and on His authority. Character, the spoken word, truth, all are so infinitely important to God that He will place His Name, His throne and all His creation literally on the line. God will place them perilously in danger of falling into His adversary's hands in order to prove beyond reasonable doubt that He is beyond reproach.

This unfolding drama is initiated in the 3rd heaven but the drama will shift to a planet which, in the beginning, was a formless mass that the Lord God prepared so that it would be habitable by all sorts of created beings. This is not fictional (mythological), but is found detailed within the pages of the bible. God allows man entrance to His Supreme High Court, first as witnesses, then as spectators, permitting them to record the drama, to search the covenant documents and to ultimately decide for themselves if God is who He says He is.

Psalm 12:6

 

Lucifer's promotion meant a number of things. By virtue of being situated in such a prominent position the Cherub could develop a more antagonistic or endearing attitude toward God. But should Lucifer's heart become exposed for all the realm to see because of his newly given power and prestige then his true nature would be exposed. God understands that power corrupts an already depraved nature exponentially, the problem was that His creation up to that moment had never confronted evil or depravity, those were terms yet to be uncovered and given definition. What was at its core would be the definition of evil (opposition to God) but an even greater drama was; is God who He says He is. Is He morally pure, is He the source of true justice, is He as praise-worthy as the host attest?

The question is: Was Lucifer's anointing to the enviable position as the Cherub who covers meant to be a promotion designed to cause his failure? If the answer is NO, then God believed the Cherub had redeeming qualities. But if the answer is yes, then the Lord made this appointment more so to have His word tested than to make the conflicting Cherub an open spectacle. Lucifer's desire was to administrate the affairs of the universe.

Lucifer, the shining one was now very visible and quite prominent, a powerful cherub of great beauty. Unbeknownst to creation, in his heart he was conspiring against God. God created Lucifer with a capacity to reflect His glory more than any other being. He was able to communicate with the Lord instantaneously and the Lord was preparing him to become ruler of kingdoms by training him to be a warrior and one who would judge using his magnificent wisdom, not to become His opposition or to help Him in matters of the universe. This has always been the sovereign realm of Creator God, while Lucifer was to be a reigning monarch in a land God was yet to apportion.

Such a state of rapid ascension and promise along with his beauty and splendor began to work in the mind of Lucifer, raising the specter of a sinister plot in the making. Lucifer began courting other spirit beings who came to worship the Lord to become lieutenants and ministers in his promised kingdom. They could be much more than what their current existence entailed. His desire was to usurp God's authority over the entire angelic realm, since angels voluntarily worship God. Using the methods in which the Hosts of Heaven communicate, Lucifer was planing sedition from God's realm. Lucifer was perverting the wisdom God gave him.

The Lord God was testing the Cherub, but was also noticing that he had plans that were becoming dangerously all encompassing and grandiose.

 

 

 

 

Eze 28:14

 

Isa 2:2

 

 

 

Isa 14:13-14

 

 

Psalm 148:2

 

 

Eze. 28:15

 

Divine Decree
The Lord God anoints the Cherub Lucifer
The Cherub who covers (leads).

14 - Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

 

 

 

13 - For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 - I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

 

15 - You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until unrighteousness was found in you.

 

Lucifer was now inwardly becoming prideful, developing independence from God. Placing his own will in opposition to God's was treason. He chose to act independently from God, exercising the violence of rebellion. The angels and host saw Lucifer ascend to prominence, and imagined that Lucifer's beauty, pomp and morning glory were the main reasons. He was accompanied by trumpets and ceremony and he was now ready to govern. What he needed were followers, and for this he prepared to demonstrate that he not only had God's blessing but that he could govern better than God. Lucifer expressed a desire to control all the affairs of the universe.

Lucifer, chief cherub, decided he would challenge God's system. Upon God finding this out, He immediately sentenced Satan and banished him from his position as protector of God's throne. Such an action by the Lord set a series of events in motion that would shake the foundations of the universe.

Satan invented a clever attack: the power of suggestion, an ability to induce thoughts about things that created beings desire. While planting an idea here and an innuendo there, Satan began asking questions designed to start doubt growing. He launched a desire in angels hearts for what is forbidden and for what departs from what God has provided. This created confusion, and it fogged the minds of angels who had been created in an environment where evil was not known or experienced. Ultimately he took God's clear truth, then dropped just enough poisonous falsehood into it to cause destruction. Using flattering and lying lips, ruthless tactics, Satan attempts to reverse the Judge's ruling and asks that His decision be overturned, citing unfair treatment and an overly-swift rush to judgment. He accuses the Judge of being a cosmic dictator who, by acting presumptuously, has totally misused His power.

But, there was no greater gain by Satan than that which sowed a seed of doubt in the minds of many of the angels. If his gain were allowed to be prolonged and uncontested, Satan's power and influence was sure to blossom within the universe.

The Judge could have carried out His sentence on Satan at this time for rebellion, for his attempted coup d'etat, but that timing would have opened a Pandora's box of confusion about justification. With 33% of angels firmly in Satan's camp and with his relentless accusations against the Judge for what he terms an unfair indictment, the Judge decides not incarcerate the cherub.

Satan amasses a well organized spiritual system intended to seize control of the universe. Adopting a perverted arrangement of the gradation of God's Hosts, Satan prepares to attack God by force and by means of law.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rev 12:4

 

 

 

 

 

Eph 6:12

 

In the secret chambers of God's throne room, the Triune Godhead met to decide the fate of the Cherub who is now secretly out of control.

The Father entrusted His Son with undertaking a most momentous task, given in the form of a decree. The Son, 2nd Personage of the trinity, accepted this momentous task; vindicating His Father's epoch-making decision. Once the Son gave His Father a positive response, God made the decision to judge Lucifer by casting him out of the throne room and out of the 3rd heaven altogether.

A predetermined judgment is meted out, the sentence passed, its execution sure.

The Judge Indicts Lucifer On Three Counts:

Count 1: God read the mind of the Cherub, Lucifer and saw violence (intentional, destructive, emotional and natural force). Lucifer developed an internal rage against the Lord as he guarded the mountain of God or His throne (mountains and hills denote authority of right to rule).

Opposition to God is sin, so that was the very first act of sin. This secret act by Lucifer was not only rebellion brewing, but also was betrayal of the very One who promoted him to the highest position in the realm.

As Judge, God sentences Lucifer to swift destruction.

Count 2: What caused the inner violence in Lucifer was pride (making any other being, or any other thing, of primary importance above God). Lucifer was created more beautiful and with more wisdom than any of the host of God. He believed in his heart that these two qualities would lead the way in taking-over God's kingdom, or would open a channel that made demands on God. He cannot fail to notice that his own personal popularity among the host is swelling. Due to his wisdom, which was initially given to glorify God, Lucifer is (instead) channeling corrupted messages to angels while in God's holy presence.

The Judge will humble Lucifer by casting him to the ground, and all the great will see him debased before their eyes.

Count 3: The Judge sites a multitude of iniquities, from which inference judgment of the king of Tyre may be ascertained, God describes the king of Tyre as one "unrighteousness of your trade." Lucifer has had aspirations of ruling by usurping the riches of the universe and God's throne. He is not for order but for personal power. Lucifer's desire was to carve-out his share of the universe from God, and with his share receive worship and adulation. Motivated by that desire, he sows the seed of doubt throughout the universe, including in the minds of the grand jury of angels, which is soon to be established by God. Doubt is very effective as a legal tool for any attorney whose purpose is to win a case by any means.

 

Psalm 2:7-8

John 1:1-5

Heb 3:2-3

 

 

 

 

Eze 28:16-18

Divine Decree

7 - I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to Me, You are My Son, today I have begotten You.
8 - Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession.

Judicial Indictment
judgment and sentencing of Lucifer

Count 1

16 - By the abundance of your trade you were internally filled with violence, and you sinned;therefore I have cast you as profane from the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

Count 2

17 - Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I put you before kings, that they may see you.

 

Count 3

18 - By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you; it has consumed you, and I have turned you to ashes on the earth.

 

The Judge makes His final reference about Lucifer. Wherein the Judge expresses His deep disappointment and anticipates alienation for expelling Lucifer from the 3rd heaven.

In the eyes of all who see you...
Ezekiel 28:19 - All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have become terrified and you will cease to be forever.

 

Lucifer's intention was to profane the sanctuary: The mountain of God, the Holy of Holies, an abode where sin cannot dwell. Yet it was THERE where Lucifer initiated sin. Using deception, which is the mask of evil or the intent to commit evil, Satan's primary objective is to discredit God's word.

The Judge had to purify with fire, which fire will one day torment the cherub who's eventual destiny is the "Lake Of Fire".
This post-millennial outcome will terrorize all who become Lucifer's followers.

The decision by the Judge of the Universe, in judging and sentencing Lucifer, triggered the greatest upheaval in the heavens ever recorded in the scriptures. Lucifer's swift expulsion from the throne room induced one third of the host of heaven to side with Lucifer. The Lord, God, now had a strong adversary whom He renames Satan, and the Devil.

Satan cries foul, claiming that God has unjustly acted as both Judge and Jury. Satan claims falsely that, lacking any evidence to support the charges, God has unjustly expelled him from the 3rd heaven and has unjustly sentenced him to be incarcerated for a thousand years in the abyss. Satan begins a campaign of slanderous attacks on God. Satan demands that God either restore him to his former state, as Anointed Cherub, or Satan will hold God accountable for a decision which Satan stylizes as baseless and unfair. Satan, now God's adversary, carries on a campaign in which he denounces God for making a decision which Satan feigns to be presumptuous, and while Satan rightly feels ensnared by the decision he is wrong to feel his rejection was unfair.

Satan then leads a conspiracy against God.

Satan begins his attacks by murdering God's character. Saying God cannot be trusted, saying that God promoted me then He removed me. Saying God lied, that He offered promises while I was covering His throne. Then Satan, making-up all these false claims and attempting to bolster his case with grandiose lies, says; I was told of the rulership of kingdoms and nations, yet God wants no competition, He feels threatened in that I may want to share His glory. God is a cosmic dictator, He controls the universe His way and no other way, yet I was led to believe I could council Him or be counseled by Him. God is unfair. How, on a whim, can I be subjected to eternal judgment by being thrust into a Lake Of Fire specifically created for me? What kind of justice is that from Him who speaks of being fair? God creates beings only for the purpose of serving or praising Him, what He creates are like automatons who are forced to praise and worship Him. I, on the other hand, believe in the diversity of every living being. God says He is Love (affection without prejudice). But where is that love if I cannot trust Him? God believed all were awestruck and loved Him. I have just proven by the numbers of followers I have (33%) that not all feel as He thinks. The reason He judged me so swiftly is because He is afraid of my growing popularity. And does God, deep down, suspect that the rest of His creation will see it my way, eventually?

 

 

 

 

Luke 10:18

Rev 12:3

 

 

 

 

 

 

John 8:44

 

Lucifer's other argument against his expulsion from the highest heaven is that charges levied against him by the Judge lack clear definition. Lucifer asks; Is pride an offense that merits expulsion? Has pride been proven? Obviously not all of the host agree with the Judge's assessment of Lucifer, and he insists the Judge must cite a reason for His swift judgment and sentence.

The charges the Judge issues upon Lucifer are considered by him to be biased, favoring only God Himself. If the charges can be proven to be frivolous, there is absolutely no grounds for them to stand.

Lucifer advocates for a mistrial.

 

Satan tears into God the Father with an onslaught that is lacking in due reverence, without hesitation, roaring boldly. He realizes the following: By making rash and strong charges he plants the seeds of doubt among the rest of the spirit beings, he knows this to be an effective tool. It is now up to God to answer those charges and then it is His word against Satan's. How will God convince His host that the Cherub He had promoted must now, suddenly, be vanquished with what the Cherub calls a questionable hair-trigger decision?

Lucifer's allegations, accusations and demands are followed by motions for a trial before a heavenly court, or he demands that the charges be dropped.

What Satan does not reveal are his own thoughts which he was conjuring-up in his heart. He was in an all out offensive against the Lord. The onus was with the Lord to prove that Satan's charges were false, a defamation of His character, slanderous and outright lies. In fact, it was Satan who had plans in his heart to overthrow God and grab a share of the universe, all without good intentions. Satan was preparing to throw the universe into a state of chaos and run it his way, completely opposite to God's order. His powers were considerable and he would not spare any of that strength, he is prepared to harm all that is good and righteous. But adding to the trouble brewing were myriad angelic followers. Although far fewer in number than those who remained loyal to the Lord, still a considerable force. And now, with Satan's power of suggestion he injected doubts, producing the confusion that he knows will weaken the resolve of some of the host. Truly, the balance of the universe was in doubt.

As Satan begins to throw charges against the Lord to make headway influencing the host of heaven, he exerts his compelling forcefulness on the host to produce his desired effects on some of their actions, behavior and opinions.

The Lord, God, perceives the need to establish a universal courtroom where He will preside. Plus the need to appoint a grand jury constituted of the host of heaven to review the facts of the case, who will offer an assessment and recommendation regarding their fellow member of God's family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Luke 2:13

 

 

 

Dan 4:17

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Divine Decree

God the Father appoints the Grand Jury, and names as its foreman The Archangel Michael.

17 - "This sentence is by the decree of the angelic watchers. And the decision is a command of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind, and bestows it on whom He wishes, and sets over it the lowliest of men."

 

Satan now has the ability to roam the universe, lying and making repulsive charges against God. He mounts an impressive smear campaign, using his followers to create doubt in the mind of the rest of the angels and host.

Satan's motivation is to overturn God's decision of his expulsion from the 3rd heaven and proposes to share the universe with God. Satan already has 33% of the angels on his side and is spreading doubt, but that doubt is unacceptable to the Lord, God.

God demands that He be worshiped in spirit and in truth, based on His word and based on who God is. Now He has opposition and an "Accuser" who is challenging His assertions and His judgment. Does the appointed grand jury understand the nature of the charges? If not, Lucifer demands the charges be dropped.

In Lucifer's motions, he questions the Judge's character and questions how he could ever receive a fair hearing. Since the grand jury is comprised of angels who have been created by God, Lucifer argues that he will never receive a fair hearing or trial.

Satan is concerned about his status of being left without a home, convinced that he was maligned, mistreated, unfairly judged and sentenced. He files a motion in God's court which he presents as evidence before the grand jury.

The foreman of the jury, Michael the Archangel, is the Liaison between the grand Jury and the Judge who will review the motion and decide on the matter. Once again, the entire Godhead meets in the secret chambers and...

Considers Satan's Motions Before The Court:
1 - God reverses His decision against Satan and returns His previous state
2 - God gives Satan 50% of the universe to rule
3 - God dismisses the case altogether

All 3 Motions do not necessarily run independently of one another.

The Godhead determines that the motions are to be denied, but does acknowledge that there is an environment of hostility and uncertainty, not what God desires in His realm. This foul environment runs against His wish of order and peace. The Godhead also determines it is not plausible to sentence Satan at this time, for the following reasons:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Psalm 50:6

 

 

 

 

 

 

Satan makes his argument before the Grand Jury

In reference to God's swift judgment, and citing lack of evidence to support the charges.

1 - The Subject claims lack of evidence in God's decision to sentence him at this time. He thereby wishes to be restored to his former position as Anointed Cherub.

2 - The Subject further requests a hearing to have a share of the universe as his own possession, citing how many angels agree with his position.

3 - In the event the Judge objects, the Subject requests the Judge has the case against him dismissed.

 

1 - Evidence must be on the basis of 2 witnesses
2 - Motions presented by Satan should be reviewed by the grand jury
3 - Satan does have part of the host in agreement and on his side
4 - Sentencing Satan will create more questions than answers
5 - The Judge will preserve His reputation and character

Satan is denied the 2nd motion, having God share the universe with him. And is also denied the 3rd motion of having the case thrown out.

However the court will grant a continuance of the case, as the Grand jury wishes to hear more arguments.

 

 

 

 

John 12:31

Judicial Decision

The Judge rules against the Defendant's 1st motion by denying a reversal of the decision to have the Cherub expelled from the 3rd heaven.

31 - Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.

 

Satan's counter motion fails in court, but he does secure a legal victory when the Judge rules that the case should be heard by allowing further evidence to be presented. This is not a small matter given that the Judge is the universe's CEO as well as Supreme Judge. Satan is not oblivious to the fact that a legal technicality exists whereby the Judge was forced to hand the case back to the grand jury. The grand jury obviously is deadlocked in its own findings as uncertainty exists whether Satan really was fomenting dissension when God expelled him from the 3rd heaven.

Satan at this time goes into overdrive and mounts an exhaustive campaign against God further accusing Him of being indecisive, The Judge's latest ruling is used by Satan as a sign that He made a hasty decision wrongfully and without justification.

The Godhead is now meeting to decide not only the legality of the case but the mounting chaotic condition of the universe and the insecurity that the host of heaven are facing. An arrest and sentencing of Satan at this time would place God in very bad light before His creation because of His impeccable reputation and highest standards when judging. God is not going to take any action that leaves His creation wondering.

The ongoing meetings brought forth a Divine decision designed for the grand jury to carry out their investigation of the judicial proceeding and lend understanding to the chaotic situation all around. God had created the heavens and the earth, but the earth was formless and void with darkness over the surface. God, it appeared, was in the midst of preparing this act of creation when He interrupted it to judge the Cherub. Now He was ready to restart the creation process of this planet, starting with light. In so doing He shed light on the grand jury's task. God divided the chaos called darkness and named it day. The grand jury's attention was directed to this heavenly body called earth where the fight between good vs evil, order vs chaos, light vs darkness was beginning. And, above everything else, the fight was about God's character as the Sovereign of the universe, His ability to judge uprightly and His word vs Satan's. Earth is where the fight would be fought and come to a climax. Earth will be where the grand jury will find it easier to inspect the evidence and make its recommendation on the plight of the universe to the Judge, while the proceedings will be regulated to just this one corner of the universe. The trial will now move to its new venue called planet earth.

Despite the change in venue for the trial, Satan did win two legal victories at the outset:
1 - The Judge did not incarcerate Satan since there was as yet no viable legal answer to Satan's charges.
2 - Satan was able to entice 33% of the host of Heaven to follow him. The host were the realm of angels who were created in an environment lacking evil.

Divine Decree

The Godhead draws a line of demarcation between light and darkness to facilitate the grand jury's investigations of Satan and his charges against God.

1 - In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 - The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.
3 - Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
4 - God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
5 - God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.

 

God created time by the separation of light and darkness, the evening and the morning, one day. As God proceeded with the meticulous, painstaking preparation of the planet the spirit beings marveled. Satan and his followers also wondered at what might have been. What the sons of God could not perceive was the greater plan of God. Planet earth was now being prepared for an entirely new entity, something the spirit-beings had never seen. A new entity who (just as the host of heaven and all of God's creation) was meant to worship, praise and obey God, but who was also fully autonomous and independent, with the natural ability to think on its own and make its own decisions, yet was confined to the earth. A new entity who possessed a spirit but was not an eternal "Spirit-Being" as the host of heaven were.

This new creature will play the key role in deciding the fate of Satan and the fate of all creation. In creative history's greatest gamble the new creature will help the grand jury decide for itself whether God is who He says He is. Thus from the secret chamber where the Godhead meets, the Holy of Holies, comes forth a preliminary decision.

First, God's new creature is given the name "Man". Made a little lower than the angels but in the image of God: Body, soul and spirit.

God waited for the seventh day from the start of creation to make a proclamation. In that day, He stated that every creative act by Him was finished. In man God made His highest form of creation because, should man fulfill the destiny that is laid before him, God will give man the greatest of all gifts, to live eternally sitting next to God in judgment of all beings. Man is promised to sit at the right hand of God for all eternity upon completion of the mission on earth.

Key to man's ability to complete the mission, and a key consideration for the grand jury's own investigation, would be man's sovereignty. Would man be independent from God to make choices? And what guarantee does the Creator present before the grand jury, and the defendant, that this brand new entity is not merely a sycophant and that man will not just be testifying in court as a coached witness? Surely Satan, who will not let up in accusing the Judge of the universe of deception, will bring this up in his defense.

Divine Decree

God creates an autonomous intelligent being, designed for the purpose of clarification and able to distinguish between evil and good.

26 - Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
27 - God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
28 - God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

 

God will remedy the problem this way. Man will be created in a garden where all his needs will be met from nutritional sustenance, to an occupation - he was to discover all about the garden and its animals and was to tend the garden, to fellowship - with God. Man, as all of God's creation, is destined for eternal life, thus a tree called the "the tree of life" will be made available to him as a reminder of his destiny in eternity. The tree's composition makes its fruit edible and its leaves available for healing.

A 2nd fruit tree will be planted far more prominently in the middle of the garden which God names the "tree of knowledge of good and evil". This tree, besides its prominence, is gorgeous to look upon. It is very enticing to taste-of and is readily accessible. With this one tree as an example, and with the only command God is to give man, the grand jury, the defendant and the Judge Himself can tell if man is indeed a free agent or not.

Man was created by God and lived in His presence, yet man was in a vulnerable state. Needing to be instructed in all matters both in his physical state and surroundings, and in the realm of the spiritual, to live near-to God in a happy coexistence with his human mate and the rest of God's creation. So the Lord God, in the form of the 2nd Person of the Godhead, would come down to speak-with and instruct man during the cool of the day. What may have been discussed were topics on cultivating the garden, naming the animals and helping Adam to discover the great marvels that surrounded him. As God's sole "agent", Adam had obtained from God real and effective (legal) power of attorney on earth.

He no doubt brought Adam to the two trees in the midst of the garden and discussed each as well as their function. From the tree of life, its fruit could be eaten for invigoration and as a teaching tool to explain what is eternal life. The Son spoke of His Father in glowing terms; His love, creation, justice, and character. How all that He's made is destined to live forever in perfect joy and majesty for the purpose of worshiping and obeying Him.

But then the Son explained that man was created not only for that purpose but to vindicate His Father who was embroiled in a fearsome legal battle with one who is called the Deceiver or Satan. Adam would be confused by the information the Son was giving, thus necessitating daily briefings during the cool of the day. The Son needed to impress upon Adam that he, and he alone, stood in the middle of an epic battle between two powerful forces. The Son explained to Adam the difference between good and evil, which was akin to the difference between light and darkness, something Adam understood with the passing of each night and day.

As for the Deceiver, the Son explained who he was and that he was just a created being, but that His Father had created Lucifer with vast power, wisdom and abilities which he used in sly and crafty ways. One of them being, he hides behind personalities and poses as an angel of light when, in fact, he intends to deceive or destroy. The Son warned Adam about the Serpent, one of the beautiful creatures they had seen in the garden. Satan then employed the Serpent to make an approach to the woman.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gen 2:16-17

 

Isa 28:29

 

 

Divine Decree

The Judge orders the tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil to be established to show proof that man is an autonomous being.

16 - The LORD God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;
17 - but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die."

 

Deception is both a term and act that needed to be understood by man. It is the primary tool of Satan to cause confusion and create havoc, and is diametrically opposed to the attributes of God's kingdom. Man's Divine Counselor explained this term clearly, as evidenced by the woman's response to God's inquiry of whether had she eaten from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (i.e. "The serpent deceived me... ").

Deception is the chief way Satan will combat God's judgment of evil, since deception always employs elements of truth. At the very least, anyone who is exposed to deception pauses to analyze what was uttered, since any free-willed entity will weigh the words a crafty, scheming, lying, deceiver who thinks they have an easy mark. That pause is where the original sewing of the seed of doubt is watered with an ounce of truth. Satan understood that the tree of knowledge of good & evil is where the battle is won or lost, there must be a reason God made it an object of such prominence, not unlike Himself. Whomever or whatever God places His eyes upon becomes a battleground, i.e. Lucifer; planet earth; the tree of knowledge of good & evil; men who were called-of-God; Israel; Job; the Messiah, etc. In each respective object a choice is required.

The imaginations of men and of spirit-beings is unlimited, as concerns the employment of deception. There has been no curtailment of their freedom to deceive.

While Lucifer had become a thorn-in-the-side of the universe, until Christ Jesus' successful defense on earth both the tree of knowledge of good & evil and man's erroneous decision concerning it became the Son's judgment, the cross.

 

Gen 3:13

 

2 Cor 11:14

 

The Son explained to Adam that at some future date he will be called to testify before a grand jury made-up of the host of heaven on behalf of His Father. But only after Adam, of his own free will, and without prejudice, is brought before the grand jury to answer questions regarding what the Son is confiding to him - as opposed to the Serpent's claims. The Son assures Adam that, should he rise to the occasion and grab ahold of the destiny laid before him, His Father will reward him magnificently. But should he fail the consequences would be severe.

Man is a credible witness on behalf of the Judge since man is created, independent, free willed and autonomous. The Judicial command regarding the tree of knowledge of good & evil will be the determining factor.

Should man successfully testify before the grand jury he will vindicate the Lord God's judgment of Lucifer, as well as God's judgment of Lucifer's followers. He should be able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that throughout mankind's existence the Lord has been full of loving-kindness, compassionate and that living for Him is a rewarding endeavor. It will forever erase doubt about God and prove Lucifer's accusations baseless. That the serpent in fact is the one defaming the character of God, he is the arrogant one, setting up verbal traps which are nothing but deceptive, vacuous words. Mankind is expected to testify that Divine standards are faultless, that this one true God is not one of confusion but of order and perfect love.

Adam was given counseling by the Son and, briefing Adam in the midst of the garden, by tree of knowledge of good & evil the Divine Decree is reiterated: Not to eat from that one tree because, if he does, all the promises Adam had been given will be automatically revoked, and that the Supreme Heavenly Court has decreed that a death sentence will be automatically invoked.

The Godhead determines that Adam should not remain alone, since all the rest of creation is paired-up with mates. At first, Adam's period of initial solitude was valuable because his Counselor could receive Adam's undivided attention. Then, out of Adam's side, God creates a companion who was fitting for him - woman.

The defendant in the trial-of-the-ages, Satan, needed witnesses on his behalf. But more importantly, Satan understood the plan of God up to this point. God was basing His entire case on the testimony of what, now, is clearly the star witness in the case, Adam. God had put all His legal eggs in one basket. Satan had observed that the 2nd Person of the trinity spent much time with Adam in private conversation, and Satan was convinced of two things by virtue of Adam being given power of attorney in the full representation of mankind:

 

 

 

 

 

Gen 2:18

 

 

 

 

 

 

1 Tim 2:12-14

 

Mistakenly, Satan was convinced that:
1 - God had rigged this case against Satan by having access to Adam through His Son, Who obviously is intimately close to the Judge of the universe, and;
2 - Adam is not a sovereign free-will agent at all but, instead, is a being who is nothing more than a human flunky for the Judge.

Yet, Satan is prepared to argue those two points before the grand jury, and the best way to give evidence of that argument is by testing. After a period of surveying and studying the first couple Satan noted that Adam is more resolute and steadfast, having spent long hours with the Son of God. On the other hand, Satan became aware that the woman was receiving instructions from the Son of God 2nd-hand, through Adam.

Satan sees two weaknesses:
1 - The woman's beauty is unparalleled by anything physical God has created, and that Adam is completely mesmerized by her.
2 - She is definitely the weaker vessel: mentally, physically and spiritually. Woman will prove easily deceived by guile (easily beguiled).

 

The woman loves to spend an inordinate amount of time in the vicinity of the forbidden tree and, unrestrained in conduct, she often wonders what is the rationale behind the prohibition to eating its luscious fruit. Satan notices that Adam is careless by allowing his mate to be out of his sight, allowing the woman to linger in that place of temptation. So Satan, lurking nearby, prepares to pounce on the situation by clothing himself as one of the garden's most beautiful creatures. Clothed as a serpent, Satan approaches the vulnerable woman, and then employs his most effective weapon - Deception.

Satan pulls off his greatest coup, even surpassing his successful argument before the grand jury, which had forced the Judge to rule not to incarcerate him after his rebellion in the heavens. He psychologically probes the woman, plants the seed of doubt, obscures the truth and fosters confusion inside the woman's mind. Here, sin becomes tangible, capable of being touched, a choice. Satan distorts and perverts God's character, even while knowing that the One to be obeyed has the right to be worshiped. There is no covering for disobedience, sin and wickedness. Satan is a deceiver operating in a realm of the denial of truth, rather than in a realm of lies. Woman is confronted with a decision between opposites.

Utilizing tact, malevolent wisdom, superb timing, and a flawless convincing argument, the Serpent deceives the woman into eating from the tree of knowledge of good & evil. But in one stroke, Satan accidentally proved that man was indeed a sovereign free-will agent who is able to choose. This act fully demonstrated that God was not lying when He created man autonomous and, in fact, that the Serpent is the liar. But the Serpent is not looking for justice, Satan is looking to turn the legal tables on God. Satan will now be able to use this weakness in his favor by attempting to sway man into testifying against God.

Now, Satan needed to convince the woman to induce Adam to eat of the same fruit, and thus foil God's legal strategy by discrediting His star witnesses' testimony before the court. Should Satan succeed, God will either have to rule on His own decree, and destroy man, or His credibility before the host of heaven will be tarnished. Satan, as the defendant, clearly is trying to demonstrate that God is NOT who He says He is.

In either scenario Satan could be successful. Satan also envisions that he will also shift from being the defendant in the case to becoming the plaintiff, whereby he no longer feels he is the hunted, but the hunter. He will begin to show proof that he was framed by God and was cast in an ignominious light before the host of heaven. Satan will now turn his attention to accusing God mercilessly, and Satan believes he has good reason.

Satan's plot proves successful, as the woman convinces Adam to eat from the tree of knowledge of good & evil, thereby rendering himself useless as the Judge's vindicator. With that act of disobedience, all sorts of consequences ensue as pertains to mankind; legal, political, biological and religious. But, most of all, consequences affecting even the foundations of God's own kingdom. By Adam missing-the-mark concerning faithfulness to God, he surrenders legal power of attorney to Satan. Adam will be held accountable for his own disobedience and for carelessly permitting the woman to be deceived by guile (beguiled).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rev 12:10b

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motion filed in court by the Plaintiff Satan

On behalf of himself and the 1/3 of the angels who followed him.

Satan submits evidence to
the Grand Jury

The Plaintiff reminds the Grand Jury of the Judicial decree that the soul that sins dies.

Adam has freely chosen to eat of the tree of knowledge of good & evil and is guilty by decree, he thus must be sentence to eternal death.

By virtue of the witness, Adam, being unable to testify in court, Satan seeks relief from the court and asks that the charges filed against him be dropped.

 

Satan seizes his opportunity and files new charges against man, naming himself Plaintiff. In his charges he asks to be returned to his former status and that the Judge throw out the charges against him. He also takes on new clients to represent, the 1/3 of the angels that sided with him at the time of the rebellion. They, like himself, were cast out of the 3rd heaven and wished to be returned to their former privileged status. He submits that his judgment was without merit, lacking, evidence of guilt or wrongfulness. Satan alleges that the Judge insists on micro-managing man by leading His own witness.

Satan already had motioned for a mistrial. He contends that there was no merit to support the charges that he was prideful and considering sedition against the throne of God. His followers had initially supported him, and with the fall of man their decision is looking quite good at this time. He requests, now that the main witness has been tainted, that the Judge recuse Himself from the trial.

Satan claims the charge of pride is not punishable. Especially when myriad beings question such charges and since Adam and the woman had questioned them as well. Man, who was created in God's image and given an entire planet to subdue, is now firmly in Satan's hands.

The Grand jury examines the evidence presented. They notice that Satan's points have validity according to the Judge's past opinions and rulings on the case.

The latest Grand Jury findings are quite disturbing. The findings indicate that there is legal evidence to support most of Satan's points. The Grand Jury finds that there is no evidence or legal right to recommend an indictment against Satan and his followers. Very disturbing is the fact that Adam and the woman have broken the one Judicial Decree which demands the death penalty, and the Grand Jury is certain of their culpability.

It is beyond the scope of the Grand Jury to make recommendation as to Satan's motion to be returned to the position of Anointed Cherub that Covers.

 

 

Motion filed by the Plaintiff, Satan

On behalf of himself and the angels who followed him.

The Plaintiff reminds the Grand Jury of the Judicial decree that the soul that sins dies.

Adam has freely chosen to eat of the tree of knowledge of good & evil and is guilty by decree. He must be sentenced to eternal death.

By virtue of Adam being unable to testify in court, Satan seeks relief from the court and asks that the charges filed against him be overturned.

He requests that planet earth be given to him as a sovereign domain.

He requests that the case against him be thrown out of court and that his former position as Anointed Cherub that Covers be restored.

He also requests that his followers be returned to their former status.

 

Iniquity has been exposed, a lack of faithfulness, what God least wanted. Man was now in open rebellion against Him. God gave man an immaculate, pristine environment in which to live; He gave indefatigable, comprehensive counseling regarding life and the first couple's relationship; as well as clear warning about evil and its devices, and man forfeits all blessings forever.

The Lord God was not out to test man, He was looking for a relationship that would transcend every other in His realm. God gave man all blessings in return for man's day in court, before the grand jury of hosts which would lay groundwork for the Judge's justification of Satan's expulsion from his given high position. But God mightily needed to hear man testify while not under guilt or feeling pressured. He also needed man to have forsaken His own Adversary's enticements while being able to freely explain to the grand jury why Satan's system is totally flawed. Then, in return for man's successful testimony, God as Judge of the Universe would crown man with his rightful reward for attaining his destiny.

Sadly, the Judge was now forced to interrogate man and be forced to rule regarding man's eternal fate.

The Judge focused His interrogation in three main areas:

The first question was meant to establish Adam's state of mind.

Adam was no longer at peace with God but displayed a guilty conscience. At the fore, there was evidence man was in no condition to testify for the Judge. Not only was Adam hiding, but his newly activated conscience was bearing his guilt.

The Judge's 2nd question was meant to demonstrate if Adam understood the severity of his deed and the nature of charges which will be imposed against him.

Adam was remorseful, exhibiting a deep sense of culpability, but avoided answering questions concerning a new-found awareness of his nakedness.

The Judge's third question was meant to draw-out a confession because of Adam's illicit act.

Adam's answer made it doubly clear he was in no condition to testify in court, he blamed the woman and tacked on another excuse in order to obscure the issue. He tells the Judge in no uncertain terms, had God not given him the woman this act of disobedience would never have occurred.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gen 3:9-13

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Judge conducts a pre-trial hearing

In order to question the first couple regarding their fall from Divine grace

Then the LORD God called to the man, and said to him,
9 - "Where are you?"
10 - He said, "I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself."
11 - And He said, 2. "Who told you that you were naked? 3.Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?"
12 - The man said, "The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate."
13 - Then the LORD God said to the woman, 1. "What is this you have done?" And the woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

 

Next, the Judge interrogated the woman. His only question was based on Adam's testimony, who had singled her out as the chief culprit in the matter. The woman's answer was to blame the serpent who deceived her. The fact that she understood what deception meant proves both Adam, directly, and the woman, indirectly, received instructions by the 2nd Person of the Trinity, the one who initially explained the meaning and danger of being deceived to Adam.

The Godhead again goes into private consultation in order to deliberate the most recent filing by Satan. He has taken on the role of advocate for himself and for the angels who allied themselves with him at the time of the rebellion against God. This particular action taken by Satan must be carefully weighed and considered.

 

The consequences of what had transpired are highly significant and have placed God in a legal quandary. Based on Adam's own testimony, the expected star witness on God's behalf is now corrupted according to standards and practices of the court. The Grand jury has already determined which law had been violated, punishment for breaking that law is death. The other two motions filed by Satan are considered valid at that time, but the Supreme Judge still has one more option. Satan had taken advantage of the woman's openness to temptation and used that vulnerability to lead both her and Adam astray.

Before the fall, while Adam and the woman lived inside the garden, the 2nd Person of the trinity visited with Adam from time to time. Subsequent to the fall, and the couple's less than stellar performance during a special hearing before the Judge, He decides not to adjudicate the couple. Instead, God assigns Adam court appointed Counsel to represent him. The Judge will no longer hear testimony from Adam nor entertain any motions without the Attorney present.

God the Father appoints the 2nd Person of the trinity as legal counsel for Adam, who has been indicted on charges of missing-the-mark (concerning faithfulness to God) by disobeying God's command. The appointment is accepted, but the job description entails more than legal counsel, for man is now condemned and is on a virtual death-row. Counsel for man understands that the Judge trying the case is, Himself, under siege with a motion set before Him to throw out the entire case against the plaintiff, Satan and his clients.

This separate area needs special attention. Should the Judge rule in Satan's favor because Satan has made his point, and because the Judge's vindicator has failed, there will be severe consequences, repercussions will be felt throughout the universe.

There are at least two reasons:
1 - Man already has a sin nature. That type of ruling by God means He would certainly have to act on His prescribed consequence for disobedience.
2 - Satan will have won. Not only legally, but his status in the universe will grow, meaning chaos and lawlessness will ensue and prevail.

The Defense Counsel offers to take the place of man and will abide by the Judge's restrictions or the imposition of any additional burden. The Defense Attorney is granted the dual role of representing convicted man and will now replace man as the Champion Vindicator on behalf of the embattled Judge.

Having settled the issue of legal representation for man, the Judge then rules on the motions filed by Satan.

The Judge deliberates on the most recent filing by Satan, while specifically delineating rules on the matter. Satan has now taken on the onerous concern of representing himself, and is also an advocate for the angels who allied themselves with him at the time of their rebellion against God.

 

 

 

 

Isa. 9:6

 

 

Heb 12:22-24

1 Tim 2:5

 

Acts 10:42

Isa 66:24

 

 

Isa 53:4

 

Defense Council must be a human being in order to both represent man and act as God's new vindicator. However, and this is where this Judge's ruling gets sticky, God will not recreate a new man since He is legally bound to first man, Adam, created in the Garden Of Eden. Satan would exploit any recreation of man and could convince the Grand jury of unfair tactics by God and the Judge.

There is also the matter that man is now under a Judicial "stay of execution" pending the court's new direction in the case.

The Judge will rule on this filing by the Defense despite no legal precedence. But, if He does accept, He will then demand certain specifications. i.e. Special and extraordinary circumstances.

In the Judge's ruling, a charge of deceiving man for his own benefit is levied against Satan. The Judge sentences Satan's representative on earth, the serpent, to a curse. The serpent will no longer be a beautifully attired creature, but will crawl on the ground for the rest of his life and will have to live in the dust.

The curse extends to invoking enmity between Satan and the woman. This reflects on woman's future role as wife and mother within family, an institution Satan targets for destruction.

The two attorney's motions have been accepted and they will be battling each other in court.

Satan does get a favorable ruling, in that the Judge accepts his representation of himself and his followers in court. In His ruling, the Judge acknowledges that Satan will inflict great harm and pain on his counterpart in court. The Defense Attorney is guaranteed an arduous, costly defense. The Judge does, however, predict in His ruling that the Defense Attorney will eventually crush Satan's kingdom. Satan has now gone from defendant in the case to plaintiff, a huge legal victory for him and for those angels who followed him.

The Judge issues four counts against Adam for his and the woman's part in disobeying God's order to not eat from the tree of knowledge of good & evil.

The woman will bear children in great pain, while she will be playing a secondary role as helper to her husband within the family structure. The Judge does this in order to try and prevent future incidents, such as the recent one involving the tree of knowledge of good & evil, where the woman was easily snookered by Satan's false advertising.

The Judge next turns His attention to Adam. God curses the ground so that the ground will no longer be automatically fruitful. Adam must now actively cultivate the ground, through toil and hard labor, in order to eat his bread. The witness, man, has now failed and is no longer able to testify in court on the Judge's behalf. Man now stands as the accused as charges are filed: Man is sentenced to expulsion from the garden and a lifetime of of hard labor. The promise of eternal life falls into the hands of man's court appointed Attorney.

Judicial Ruling

Charges brought against Satan

14 - The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, cursed are you more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; on your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life;
15a - And I will put enmity Between you and the woman,"

 

A Public Defender is appointed for man.

15b - "And between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel."

Four counts are filed against man:

Count One

16 - To the woman He said, "I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth, in pain you will bring forth children; yet your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you."

 

The free lunch is over, and man finds he no longer will be living in the Garden, but live where he will have to deal with the elements; especially earth's natural weedy and thorny environment.

On count three, the Judge imposes the death sentence on man both spiritually and physically. The spiritual death sentence is executed immediately, as man is rendered spiritually dead - unresponsive to God's Holy Spirit. The physical death sentence is imposed in the form of a limit to the length of man's lifetime, involving eventual death.

Count 4: God expels man from the Garden. Though harsh, this judgment is mainly for man's own benefit. Because, should man eat from the tree of life he would live forever, but with a sin nature, and with no opportunity for redemption.

The case is returned to the Grand Jury.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Defense Attorney enters into a binding contract with man by having Adam and the woman remove the fig leaves they had used to cover their newly-perceived nakedness and by assembling durable garments made of skins (pelts) to cover their guilt and shame. The skins came from slain animals, this is the first shedding of blood as a result of sin, as a sacrifice for sin. Those garments represent the Messiah's personal involvement in man's legal troubles.

Count Two

17 - Then to Adam He said, "Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat from it; Cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.

18 - "Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; and you will eat the plants of the field;

19a - By the sweat of your face you will eat bread,

Count Three

19b - Till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return."

Count Four

22 - Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever... "

23 - ....therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken.

24 - So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.

 

The Judge's latest rulings gave Satan momentum to continue offensive attacks waged against God. Satan will take full advantage of his new legal lease-on-life by pressing the following issues.

He will have time to prepare and continue presenting his case before the Grand Jury and at trial before the Judge, while the host who had followed Satan will have him as legal representative. Another important point to note is Satan will use this time to further advance his plan of disorder and confusion in the heavens and, especially, on planet earth, where he now goes-about in uncontrolled fashion from one corner of the world to the other.

Satan managed through deception to eliminate the Judge's chief and only witness, and render him useless, while maintaining a request that this case be thrown out of court, having the charges dropped.

The Judge's new charges imposed on Satan, and His prediction of a future sentencing, are deemed to be unfair and unwarranted. Satan has become an avowed enemy of man, to whom the court issued a stay of execution pending legal representation and pending a future hearing despite having previously announced man's guilt. Now, deception for Satan will have to take on a new form, the option of posing as the beautiful serpent has been eliminated by the Judge through a severe sentence.

Satan's keen awareness and intuition present him the opportunity to deduce, through the Judge's rulings, an opportunity he can turn to his favor. That opportunity is the woman who will be giving birth to one of her own kind. This is because man's procreation is the means by which the sole, stated, "Champion Vindicator" who is set to destroy Satan's kingdom will emerge.

With such acquired knowledge Satan seizes on the monumental confusion in the heavens to mount an aggressive campaign that will rival his previous rebellion against God. He will roam the earth in search of what is now His only threat, a Man yet to be identified whom the Judge will permit to testify in court, who most likely becomes mankind's legal Representative.

Satan has scant information to aid him in placing an identity on this new star Witness. Satan's new information, while significant, is severely limited. He can only glean a few details from the Judge's rulings.

1. He is male, born of human reproductive means;
2. He should be stronger than Satan because the Judge, in His rulings, said He would prevail;
3. The court has granted this representative certain rights;
4. To Satan's way of thinking, once the case began turning in his favor the Judge seems headed for yet another hair-trigger, biased-filled and highly prejudiced decision.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gen 3:14

 

After the fall of man, earth's population quickly and greatly increased. That outcome forced Satan to launch an all out assault, to both identify this Messiah / Champion Vindicator and take Him on as He had formerly taken-on both the Judge and man. Because Satan so desperately desired to kill or contaminate the human lineage of this Judicially predicted Messiah, Satan devised an insidious plot to try and prevent God's plan from coming to fruition. He unleashed myriad loyal angels disguised as human males and charged them with a mission to impregnate human women, causing women to give birth to a race of human hybrids. A sinister plot designed to render impure Adam and Eve's chosen son Seth's lineage, along with the lineage of the remainder of the human race.

It was patently obvious Satan will stop at nothing in order to thwart God's plan, but of greater concern was the impasse at which the trial had arrived.

Satan, up to this point, has managed to convince one third of the host of heaven to follow him. Then, using a deceptive plot, he successfully struck down the Judge's main character witness from testifying on God's behalf. And now he is in an all out effort to prevent the Judge's Champion Vindicator from fulfilling the Judge's most recent ruling. Satan conducted a vulgar assault on female reproductive systems by using legions of his angelic followers.

Faced with a planet that was becoming a violence-filled wasteland, the Judge decides to issue another decree. God reduced the lifespan of humans further, since it had become painfully obvious most all of mankind was now in direct hostile opposition. Obviously mankind was beyond useless as a witness for God, while genetically corrupted mankind had become deeply entrenched in Satan's camp.

Gen 6:1-2

 

 

 

Gen 6:3, 6, 7

 

Divine Decree

Ruling to Curb Violence on Planet Earth.

3 - Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."

6 - The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.

7 - The LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them."

 

After the fall, the ways of man were degenerating, man's nature was in an ignominious, shameful free-fall. Chaos ruled the planet, and it became obvious that Satan had successfully transferred himself to earth, which is what he had sought when he still had a presence in heaven.

For the first time since man's creation, God's judgment of mankind would be meted out.

1 - Mankind has disappointed God to the point where He is not only sorry He created man but will blot-out mankind's existence.
2 - Mankind has become genetically corrupted and exceedingly violent, the earth is filled with murders and cannibalism.
3 - Through the genetically pure family of one righteous man, Noah, planet earth will be repopulated.
4 - God gives Noah the blueprint for an ark where life-forms will be protected during the annihilation of mankind, who were now composed of genetically hybridized humans who were wicked to an unusual degree.

The Judicial Decision is followed by a Covenant Agreement that the Judge makes with the only man He found who is totally devoted to Him, for this man is crucial to the case. The Judge's integrity demands that His own representatives be as morally upright as is the Judge, for the Judge's own character is of prime importance to remaining on the case. God, as Judge, will endure an all-out assault on His authority conducted by Satan, with Noah and His family safely floating in the ark while engaged in preserving the integrity of the planet's living organisms.

The Covenant with Noah has several key components:

1 - The Covenant will be between the High Court and Noah;
2 - The Covenant acknowledges that only Noah and his family have met the conditions for deliverance from the impending worldwide judgment;

Judicial Sentence

Ruling to end the life of all of earth's inhabitants who fail to enter the ark.

11 - Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence.

17 - "Behold, I, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish.

 

This Covenant with Noah concedes that the corrupt nature of hybridized mankind is intrinsic and irreversible. The Covenant is established by the High Court in order to preserve the Messianic linage and to keep inviolably secure from desecration the character of the Defense Council's progenitor.

From the moment of man's fall in the Garden he has been on a historic mission to rediscover his destiny, which was the seed God had originally planted in man. Which seed was like the tiny mustard seed, a seed of the trust that once had been demonstrated by faithfulness and obedience to God. At some future time, when called upon to testify before the grand jury of hosts, man was to glorify God while rebuffing the plaintiff during Satan's cross-examination. That action, as the star witness in the trial-of-the-ages, would have given the Judge reason to sentence Satan and put an end to both evil and suffering. However, since man lost his privilege to testify in court on behalf of the Judge, man was charged with disobedience and condemned for siding with the plaintiff. Man did not lose the inherent desire to fulfill his destiny, God's gifts are irrevocable. Only now, as a fallen creature, man has permitted Satan to redirect his inner desire and destiny using the Satanic tools of doubt and confusion. Adam's failure as the Judge's representative left him empty, lonely and dissatisfied. It is true that man was placed in the Garden in a very vulnerable position, but not without instructions and warnings. However, God's accuser needed to be addressed directly to cover all potentialities, God would not have it any other way. That meant Satan's victory was all the more stunningly significant, taking mankind from being vulnerable to being snared in the jaws of Satan.

One of man's initial attempts to recapture his destiny was his effort to reach out to God by building the tower of Babel. God quickly put an end to that because God can never be reached by self-effort, but only by His sovereign calling. It is man's individual response to that call, a free-will choice, that determines whether he can successfully recapture his destiny. Satan had organized that development knowing full well its eventual completion would bring a testament to him and would help him launch his one world government, since man had already ceded planet earth's title deed to him.

Other clauses of the Covenant with Noah point to the establishment of human government which will bring organization and greater stability to world population, which is vital once the flood subsides and once Noah's sons own families bring to realization the repopulation of the planet.

This Covenant has key provisions which will merge into future Covenants the Court makes with Noah and one of Noah's sons, Shem, with whose descendants the Court will be entering into future Covenants and laws.

While this Covenant sentences both mankind and the wicked hybrid beings to a physical death, it makes provisions for a spiritual stay of execution. As for Noah and his family, their lives were spared because of their genetic purity along with Noah's faithfulness, Noah's obedience, Noah's devotion, and the needs of the court during this particularly turbulent and tumultuous time.

Covenant
Made With Noah

Genesis 6:12 - God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.
13 - Then God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled
with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth.
14 - "Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall cover it inside and out with pitch.


Genesis 6:18 - "But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark--you and your sons and your wife, and your son's wives with you.
19 - "And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.


Genesis 7:1 - Then the LORD said to Noah, "Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this time.
2 - "You shall take with you of every clean animal by sevens, a male and his female; and of the animals that are not clean two, a male and his female;


Genesis 7:4 - "For after seven more days, I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; and I will blot out from the face of the land every living thing that I have made."

 

Genesis 9:1 - And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.
2 - "The fear of you and the terror of you will be on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the sky;
with everything that creeps on the ground, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand they are given.
3 - "Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, as I gave the green plant.
4 - "Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.
5 - "Surely I will require your lifeblood; from every beast I will require it.
And from every man, from every man's brother I will require the life of man.
6 - "Whoever sheds man's blood,
By man his blood shall be shed,
For in the image of God
He made man.
7 - "As for you, be fruitful and multiply;
Populate the earth abundantly and multiply in it."
8 - Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying,
9 - "Now behold, I Myself do establish My covenant with you, and with your descendants after you;
10 - and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you;
of all that comes out of the ark, even every beast of the earth.
11 - "I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall never again be cut off by the water of the flood,
neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth."

 

Payment for the Covenant - Genesis 8:
20 - Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
21 - The LORD smelled the soothing aroma; and the LORD said to Himself, "I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man's heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done.
22 - "While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
And cold and heat,
And summer and winter,
And day and night
Shall not cease."

 

The Judge's Signature - Genesis 9:
12 - God said, "This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations;
13 - I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth.
14 - "It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud,
15 - and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 - "When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth."
17 - And God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth."

 

 

A major article in the Covenant made with Noah is that of human government. Government (civilization, or city-living) naturally arises despite diversity of languages and ethnicity, it arises from man's need and desire to settle lands that are fertile and rich in natural resources, from man forming communities and engaging in commerce. Man's inherent inclination is to be a follower, and since the fall of man and his subsequent inability to perform his God-intended purpose as Vindicator, failure to reach his destiny has opened a spiritual hole in his heart that can only be filled when man realigns himself with the reason why he was first created. To vindicate God and live in harmony with Him.

This spiritual hole in the heart of man, this tangible spiritual void, derives from his failure to follow the counsel of the Lord given previous to man's fall. Subsequently, man harbors a constant desire to have that heart-felt spiritual emptiness filled. Along with the physical traits that Adam and Eve passed on to their offspring, another invisible but easily perceptible trait is the conscious inner feeling of failure to live up to the Judge of the universe's calling, of having missed-the-mark concerning faithfulness to God. Man is only limited by his imagination, and the havoc of deception Satan and his minions instigate and sustain in the spirit-realm lead imprudent men to generate an enlarged spiritual void, requiring an impossible amount of pious and devotional effort to ever successfully fill. This then becomes a lifelong craving for that which, at best, become stop-gap measures and, at worst, becomes a meaningless life that leads to eternal death, a spiritual existence separate from God with no hope of ever being granted a reprieve.

The way God originally intended man to live his life ended with Adam and Eve in the Garden, yet He would not be through with man. God's new plan was instituted in order for man to recover most of what was lost in the Garden and to completely recover it again after this mortal life. God's appointed legal Attorney for man, Christ Jesus, will require a personal relationship that not only will avert man's execution but should any man follow His plan for eternal life, that tangible spiritual void will not only be kept from increasing it would be reduced to less than a pea-sized cavity. Remaining extant only for those unavoidable trials in each man's life that the Counselor will use to keep the attention of His client narrowly focused on Him.

 

 

 

 

Psalm 25:12-15

 

Satan's other notable victory, in addition to those which he accomplished both inside and outside the courtroom, has been to cloud mankind's understanding of what man's original destiny had once been - to confuse mankind with spiritual counterfeits and side-issues. Since man is constantly searching-for and questing-after ways to fill the emptiness in his heart along with the emptiness in his belly, Satan has masterfully filled the hole in man's heart with spiritually chaotic isms, dogmas, sects and religions, and has simply left man's belly (the flesh) to man's own devices.

Civilizations develop necessitating human government, an eventuality which God oversees from a distance. Man is given complete dominion over every living creature, as man multiplies on the planet.

Noah's sons are charged with repopulating earth and each is a progenitor of different races, tribes and clans on earth. After a failed attempt to unify all of mankind at one location, the descendants of Shem, Ham and Japheth eventually migrate to every region of the planet, where disparate cultures emerge. Governments evolve to administrate, protect, educate, establish monetary systems and provide many other needs regarding their specific ethnic group, forestalling the chaos and confusion which fosters anarchy and rebellion.

 

In each of the Judge's rulings, decrees, judgments, covenants and opinions the plaintiff observed whether he could exploit any judicial wiggle-room to legally mount an appeal, even though plaintiff has chosen to exhibit behavior outside the norms of any rule of law. He understood that the supremely powerful Judge was ruling in accordance with laws instituted thus far, as evidenced by His judgment of man, and by allowing Satan and his followers their day in court. The Judge was also admitting Grand Jury evidence. The Grand Jury had found no probable cause to indict Satan and his minions, but it brought a formal accusation against and indicted those rebellious angels who had indulged in fornication with many of earth's women. The Judge's decrees granting mankind's stay of execution and His decree that a future Messiah will emerge from out of mankind and represent all of mankind before the court, while opposing Satan's kingdom, prevents the grand jury from formally recommending an indictment against Satan and his followers.

Satan's focus of intense concentration is a single item within the Judge's rulings regarding the fall of man. A future "Son" of the woman (Eve) was destined come into being, wresting the kingdoms of earth from Satan, defeating him. It did not escape Satan's notice that, in that ruling, the Judge included the point that Satan would be able to inflict a great deal of punishment on God's Champion Vindicator. This sole item gave Satan some hope, but that scant hope is contingent on Satan identifying this Messiah.

Satan, with the knowledge he has gained, began to address the issue of identifying the One destined to destroy his kingdom. He will scrutinize certain qualities in men and, most particularly, seek to discover who is the recipient of favorable treatment from the court; e.g. Adam, Seth, Enoch, Noah, Job, et.al.

In preparing his case, plaintiff perceives the foul odor of a questionable collaboration. The Judge is allowing the defense attorney to serve as Advocate for both man's interests and also the Judge's interests. Satan exploits this thinly veiled appearance of favoritism and files a motion demanding the Judge recuse Himself from the trial, citing a blatant and brazenly obvious conflict of interest.

Before the Grand Jury, Satan can plead that the Judge is without legal standing and has proceed to try this case without merit. He claims that the trial remains a sham, and that there is no law which allows the Defense to work in secret partnership with the sitting Jurist. Satan further charges that the Judge is making-up laws to favor Himself as He goes along. He further claims that this is an activist Judge benefiting the Defense, so plaintiff asks that the Judge remove Himself from the case.

 

Satan's latest strategy leads him to file a new motion in court which, at heart, decries one man whom he believes has a relationship which is too close to the Judge. Satan had been tirelessly searching for the identity of the one who is that court appointed Defense Attorney for mankind, the one who will double as Advocate for the Judge. His attention turns to Job.

Satan, who refuses to be bound by any court-issued judgments, desires to eliminate the suspected challenge posed by the presence of Job. Should Satan succeed, as he did with Adam, the Judge should then be out of options as far as His own standing in the case is concerned and the defendant, man, would be left without legal representation.

Satan's style has always been to inflict damage; first in trying to usurp God's kingdom, then by fomenting chaos in heaven. That was followed by foiling God's plan on earth when, through deception, he destroyed the credibility of the Judge's witness. Then, years later, Satan unleashed some of his following angels in a global sexual assault on women in an effort to contaminate the genetic line of the defense Counselor / Champion Vindicator. All these plans were dealt with by God through legal means and, when necessary, through force. But now Satan will use the courtroom and Grand Jury to state his case. In Job, Satan sees an individual who is so well protected and favored by God that Job appears to likely be that expected Champion Vindicator.

The hearing has the Judge asking the plaintiff attorney questions. Such as what his nature of business has been on earth. And He questioned Satan regarding Job, whom the Judge knew was the one Satan was targeting.

The Judge's line of questioning acknowledged Job to be an outstanding citizen, of great integrity a very Godly individual. There were reasons why God was blessing him so much. Job offered sacrifices not only for himself but also for his extended family, whom Job feared were not honoring God and not fully abiding in God's ways.

Satan's response to the Judge was meant to show the Grand Jury that Job's inordinate amount of attention and protection from the court, to the point that Job was prospering beyond all the citizens of his land, was more than a benign relationship. That Job's prosperity was, in fact, a secret conspiracy intended to keep the Judge on the case and for God to keep His kingdom. In other words, Satan's accusations implied God was bribing Job to enter the case at some future point and act as defense lawyer for man while doubling as vindicator for the Judge. This would yield the appearance that the Judge's character was intact, a condition of great importance to the Judge.

Evidentiary Hearing

The Judge summons the Grand Jury
Plaintiff Attorney files new motion

6 - Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.

7a - The LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come?"

7b - Then Satan answered the LORD and said, "From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it."

8 - The LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil."

9 - Then Satan answered the LORD, "Does Job fear God for nothing?

10 - "Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.

11 - "But put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face."

12 - Then the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him." So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD.

 

Satan's motion before the court became a challenge to see if the Judge would sever His relationship and all ties with Job, to stop the blessings from God, and allow Satan to test and depose Job.

In a somewhat surprising decision, The Judge allows Satan's motion on the condition Satan (who has power to take a life) does not harm Job to the point that Job's life is snuffed-out. What the Judge is proving here is, while there is a personal relationship between He and the future defense Council, He will run His court in a manner of impeccable discipline. These conditions have not changed and the Judge has not wavered, even to the current point where He is now legally positioned. His kingdom is under assault, His authority and even His standing as Judge in this trial of the ages are all under siege.

A 2nd hearing was held, for Satan was not achieving his desired results and was not receiving that which he had expected. Job was not easy to crack through loss of wealth and health alone. Thus the plaintiff attorney, in his 2nd motion, requested from the Judge an increase in Job's severe physical pain and discomfort along with the opportunity to cross examine Job before the court using three emissaries.

Again the Judge allowed the request, but short of Job's death.

Armed with this favorable ruling, Satan inflicts great distress on Job and begins a series depositions with Job using the three emissaries. Each deposition will test the will of Job, inquiring of him what is his knowledge and relationship with the Judge, mixed-in with many disparate philosophical, legal, and religious questions. They inquired of Job about his purpose in life, the reasoning behind Job's many sacrifices to God, what were Job's future expectations given his current miserable state.

The three emissaries tried, through deposition, to get Job to admit and confess to many issues where Job actually had no culpability, in fact they tried to coerce a confession out of him in exchange for a Judicial pardon.

Satan will spend days in an effort to get Job to admit that God only blesses individuals who are His fawning flunkies and sycophants. Who only serve God because He appropriates a shower of blessings. Satan attempts to establish that, without the inducement of blessings, man will turn against God as Adam first did, and as the rest of the world had already done not long before this era.

2nd Evidentiary Hearing
Judge re-summons the Grand Jury
Plaintiff Attorney files a new motion

1 - Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the LORD.

2 - The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Then Satan answered the LORD and said, "From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it."

 

Satan, the plaintiff attorney, tried to fraudulently and unjustifiably impose upon Job an illicit confession with an aim to achieve the following results:

1 - Prove Job was the expected Messiah set to defend man in court and uphold the Judge's interests;
2 - Prove there was a conflict of interest existing between the Judge and Defense Attorney;
3 - Prove the trial is a sham and all former charges against the plaintiff must be dropped;
4 - The plaintiff wanted to prove charges against him were bogus in the first place;
5 - If Job is the Champion Vindicator he's ill equipped for the task;
6 - The plaintiff insists he is not bound by current rule of law;
7 - The plaintiff's main weapon to break Job would be by first inflicting economic hardship, then emotional pain and finally physical torture;
8 - This aspect of trying Job will prove, without doubt, that the Judge is an activist Judge not a strict constructionist;
9 - Prove the Judge is corrupt for offering Job His protection and blessing over many years;
10 - Discover: What was the reasoning behind the court's long-term protection of Job?
11 - Brought pressure on the high court to stop protecting Job and allow for him to be tested and deposed.

 

Job 2:3 - The LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still holds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to ruin him without cause."

4 - Satan answered the LORD and said, "Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life.

5 - "However, put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face."

6 - So the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, he is in your power, only spare his life."

 

Job's lengthy deposition and interrogatory by 3 of Satan's emissaries was designed to elicit a response from Job which would be displeasing to the Judge, and was also meant to provoke disparaging sentiments. Not only toward the Judge but on the entire process of severe testing, and it had the grand jury's scrutiny in mind as well. The case was now down to the last possible witness on behalf of the Judge, and the plaintiff took a calculated gamble hoping for a lethal, but legal, low-blow to the Judge and the defense.

The Judge ultimately puts an end to the deposition and makes a ruling on the plaintiff's motion, which was to demonstrate Job's credibility (or lack thereof) as far as being the Champion Vindicator. Attached to His legal opinion is a lengthy dissertation.

The Judge began by severely criticizing the subject, then He began an interrogation process.

Job had some confusing answers in the deposition.

So the Judge wanted a response that would clarify his perspective on certain relevant matters. In His line of questions the Judge was also indirectly addressing the plaintiff as well.

From the inception, the plaintiff attorney has been questioning the Judge's ability to rule on matters before the court in a fair and unbiased manner. Including, but not limited to, having been ousted from heaven. Satan is even challenging God's supremacy over the universe. So the Judge asks Job questions regarding creation, and asks who was there to give God advice regarding the laying of the earth's foundations, its measurements, its pillars, etc. If Job is indeed the Messiah then these questions should not be problematic.

The Judge recalls the host of heaven rejoicing at the magnificence of creation. Was Job there, He asks? Again, whether the plaintiff knew this, or not, groundwork for identifying defense Council was being laid. There is still time for explaining the complex nature of the defense Counselor's dual role of human being and Divine being.

Does he, Job know about death and its fearsome darkness?

Does he know the gestation period of animals, the varied and intricate way animals go about birthing their young?

From the plaintiff's deposition the Judge concludes that, applicable to the Judge, Job had wavered in his answers to questions posed by Satan's emissaries. So he asked Job if he really would want to have Him step down from the case? Was Job ready to ask Him to overturn His previous judgments? Was Job ready to join the Judge's detractors?

Obviously Job was in severe distress, which was permitted by God in order to prove a point. During such duress Job was placed under rigid scrutiny, he was under a microscope in order to get him to break and possibly turn on the Judge. Satan had come to believe, wholeheartedly, Job was receiving preferential treatment from the Judge in exchange for favorable testimony on the Judge's behalf.

Clarification on whether Job is the Court appointed Attorney

2 - "Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?

4 - "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding,

6 - "On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone,

7 - When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

17 - "Have the gates of death been revealed to you, or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?

1 - "Do you know the time the mountain goats give birth? Do you observe the calving of the deer?

 

All signs pointed to Job seeking self-justification, abandoning his previous reverence for God.

In deposition Job accused God of unfair treatment, so the Judge issued him a challenge. Should Job manage to clothe himself with the Judge's standards of equity and uprightness by humbling the proud, putting down wickedness and destroying evildoers, vanquishing them, the Judge states He will validate Job's criticism and points.

1 - The One who can testify on behalf of the Judge must have proper credentials. He must know the Judge intimately and state truthfully before the court that the Judge's character is impeccable;
2 - He must attest to the fact that the Judge is the Creator;
3 - Testify He Is Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent;
4 - That what He does is because of His perfect love;
5 - His judgments are unquestioned;
6 - The host of heaven, i.e. the Grand Jury, has witnessed God's majesty.

The One who can testify in this fashion for the Judge, and is Himself sinless, is He who is the Champion Vindicator.

The Judge in His discourse regarding Job explains that his deposition showed he had many questions and much righteous indignation. He believed his great trials were unfair because of his obedience and love for God. By this however he proved that he was just a man and failed to fully comprehend his hardship.

The Judge chided him by asking "what right do you have in questioning Me, were you there while I was creating the universe"?

Large beasts of the earth and sea dwarf man in strength, in power, in their food consumption, in their fierceness, so much so that every man is in fear and awe of them. The Judge asks Job; can you fish one out of the sea? Would you dare to approach such a beast and provoke it? The Judge, in an effort to demonstrate God's superiority to puny man, makes His point to Job that man is inferior and is unable to produce anything with which He might repay. He ends his dissertation with, "all creation is Mine."

By giving His legal opinion after addressing and cross examining Job, the Judge was presenting a treatise to the Grand Jury and plaintiff attorney that there is absolutely nothing He could possibly require from Job. There were no side deals, no pre-conditions, in exchange for Job's testimony in court. There was no corroborating evidence that Job was His star witness who would serve as court appointed defense attorney for man.

Job was absolutely clueless as to why he was so severely chastened, no awareness that he was caught in the crossfire between The Judge of the Universe and Satan for what was supremacy of the universe. But the Judge wanted to make it clear that Job's deposition was not even going to be admissible in court, even though He authorized the plaintiff attorney to both castigate and test Job. The Judge was not looking for ways to see which side Job would take but, principally, to prove that Job never was nor ever will be the Champion Vindicator.

12 - "Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him, and tread down the wicked where they stand.

13 - "Hide them in the dust together; bind them in the hidden place.

14 - "Then I will also confess to you, that your own right hand can save you.

15 - "Behold now, Behemoth, which I made as well as you; he eats grass like an ox.

16 - "Behold now, his strength in his loins and his power in the muscles of his belly.

10 - "No one is so fierce that he dares to arouse him; who then is he that can stand before Me?

11 - "Who has given to Me that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is Mine.

 

After He concluded His dissertation the Judge rebuked Satan's emissaries, forcing them to make restitution to the court for what was essentially a frivolous lawsuit. He declared in formal terms Job was His servant and made clear that, although Job fell far short of Messianic qualifications, Job had made reasonably acceptable statements regarding his knowledge of God and that Job was loved by Him.

Job was given an opportunity to address the court one last time and showed why he was so accepted by the Judge. He gave evidence of a repentant heart and of understanding that his standing was as an unimportant observer in what was a greater dispute. He concludes by stating he no longer will speak, he has nothing to add.

The Judge was impressed by Job's repentance and understanding of where he stood legally. Then Job did as instructed by forgiving and praying for those whom Satan used against him.

7 - It came about after the LORD had spoken these words to Job, that the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends, because you have not spoken of Me what is right as My servant Job has.
8 - "Now therefore, take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to My servant Job, and offer up a burnt offering for yourselves, and My servant Job will pray for you. For I will accept him so that I may not do with you according to your folly, because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has."
9 - So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job.

3 - Then Job answered the LORD and said,
4 - "Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to You? I lay my hand on my mouth.
5 - "Once I have spoken, and I will not answer; even twice, and I will add nothing more."

10 - The LORD restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORD increased all that Job had twofold.

 

 

Satan made gains in and out of the courtroom,
while convincing the Grand Jury no formal charges can be filed against him.

--- A Brief Outline Of Satan's Claims ---

1 - By Satan's reasoning, God's impetuous, hair-trigger decision was unfair and without merit.
2 - Satan's expulsion from heaven was without legal basis, as was his apparent initial opportunity to rule over planet earth.
3 - Instead, God gave earth to man to rule over, to be the entity who will vindicate His name and His judgments over Satan.
4 - Satan successfully disqualified man from that potentiality.
5 - Although judged and given a pre-sentence, because of the deception he committed in the Garden, Satan kept his freedom
due to insufficient evidence stemming from the original charges and due to his filing a counter motion against the Judge.
6 - Satan argues that the case against him should be thrown out on the grounds that the Judge has no witness on His behalf.
7 - Satan is nearly successful in causing man's extinction, yielding Satan a small but limited victory over God.
He succeeds, however, in forcing the Judge to take harsh measures against man.
8 - When the Judge rules against Satan, because of his action in the Garden of Eden, He decides to appoint
legal counsel for condemned man. He further rules that man's Defense Counsel could serve as the Judge's Vindicator.
9 - Satan's world-wide travel has led him to stumble-upon a man named Job who appears to have the Judge's sympathy.
Not hedging his bet, but arguing before the court that Job was the Judge's promised Champion Vindicator,
Satan files a motion before the court asking the Judge to remove Himself from the case. The motion fails,
but the Judge does permit Satan to investigate the matter and allows Grand Jury depositions.
10 - Satan, in addition to representing himself, has taken-on clients which are the fallen angels.
11 - He is now clearly on the offensive, forcing the Judge to make rulings to
stop Satan from destroying planet earth and stop creating further chaos in the heavens.
12 - The grand Jury cannot recommend charges be filed against Satan, citing insufficient legal proof, since the Judge
has been unable to find a disinterested, objective, third-party witness to successfully testify within His high standards.
13 - Satan has accomplished the creation of a cloud of suspicion within some of the host, and enough doubt
about the Judge's judicial rulings to keep mounting both legal and conventional attacks on God's kingdom.
14 - One of Satan's aims is to label God an "activist Judge" who makes rulings on a whim.
15 - Satan believes he has proven that the Judge has shown no clear legal definitions or parameters by which
He runs His court, producing a scatter-gun approach pertaining to what are His governing principles
and showing a lack of clarity regarding His rulings after the fall of His star witness, man.
16 - Throughout the entirety of the hearings and depositions, Job proved to be a poor
witness. Yet, the Judge protects Job despite a charge of conflict of interest.
17 - The plaintiff believed the court was allowing trumped-up charges through Job.
18 - Satan claims the ongoing trail remains a sham.
19 - The plaintiff is asserting that the charges against him are bogus,
and that there is no legal precedent to continue the case.
20 - Chaos and pain are caused by the plaintiff outside the courtroom.
Inside, he uses the witnesses' unfaithfulness to have the case thrown out.
20 - The plaintiff loudly flings accusations of Judicial corruption.
21 - It is Satan's opinion that Job has demonstrated there is no longer
a possibility of finding a credible witness to support the Judge's impetuous rulings.
22 - Satan claims there is no reasonable criteria within the scope of the court's rulings.
23 - That judicial decrees are created and passed-along at the Judge's own discretion and for His own benefit.
24 - Plaintiff suggests the likelihood that the Judge had bribed Job to speak on His behalf.

 

 

The Noahic Covenant made the provision for the establishment of human government. After the tower of Babel incident mankind was induced to scatter across the entire globe, forming primitive systems of government and commerce. Satan helped men found much of this new system and he incorporated himself in every governmental structure, interjecting his immoral philosophy (licentious, lascivious nature-based religions) within governments. Satan knew how to fulfill man's insatiable desire to satisfy the naturally empty human spirit which resulted from the fall and from man's loss of a destiny as God's vindicator.

The tower of Babel represented man's attempt at reclaiming that lost destiny by uniting under false, Satanic principles in order to petition the high court for direct dialog. Man, who is now a defendant sitting on (spiritual) death row, was not given rights to approach the bench and, certainly through human-devised means, that tower was an audaciously impetuous attempt to receive a hearing before the Judge of the universe. Once again Satan had tried to derail God's plan, by inciting mankind to act in unison under a false pretense, with an ecumenical approach to Satan's worldly system of government.

This was another undertaking by Satan to stir-up confusion and force God's hand to have man judged as having a hopelessly rebellious nature. This would give Satan a defining victory and perhaps God would be inclined to sentence man immediately, a ruling that would place the arrival of the Messiah / Vindicator in jeopardy.

With continuous turmoil Satan hopes to bring yet another accusation against the Judge. His judgments are not formed within established legal parameters but He is legislating from the bench on a whim, reacting constantly to man's course of conduct. By muddying the waters Satan is expecting to show that the Judge is ruling without any legal basis whatsoever, He has no set rules for His courtroom by which to make His decisions.

With a growing worldwide population mankind turns to man-made religion, a very effective vehicle for Satan to further incorporate himself into the lives of men. Satan has shrewdly presented mankind a religious smorgasbord of choices by which to soothe man's empty and disturbed soul and has furnished philosophical alternatives to what God has revealed to man, which Satan has successfully ridiculed and maligned to affect the understanding and opinions of men.

Gen 11:5-6

The Plaintiff Attorney Interjects Confusion
Taking advantage of the court's Covenant with Noah

2 - It came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there.
3 - They said to one another, "Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly." And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.
4 - They said, "Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth."

Divine, Judicial Injunction
To prevent a Satanic plot

5 - The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
6 - The LORD said, "Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.

 

All this earthly upheaval is being considered by the Grand Jury as evidence in deliberating the charges made by Satan. Additionally, the component to factor into any recommendation as to Satan's guilt or innocence has yet to be defined. It is also difficult to see how from this entity known as Man, the lone witness on behalf of the Judge as to whether He can remain trying this case will be able to fulfill the promise found in the Judge's ruling after man's fall.

The Grand Jury is finding out, as well, that the plaintiff attorney's charges that the fallen race of humans can never again produce someone so faultless as to be a Champion Vindicator, as the Job hearings have indicated. Even someone nearly faultless and personally protected by the court, in the end, proved to be unqualified. Thus, there is more than reasonable doubt to suggest that immoral human beings cannot possibly fill the capacity of a qualified Champion Vindicator.

The plaintiff also charges that the court has failed to narrowly define that which constitutes a Defense Attorney acceptable to the court, so when Defense counsel does file to enter the case all sides can understand those conditions.

God was already beginning to take measures to counter Satan's accusations, as He did before the flood when He separated for Himself a son of Adam and Eve, Seth and from his linage men whom He will keep in close touch with, so He will continue with one of Noah's sons, Shem's linage. God chose a man from the land of Shinar named Abram to found a nation from whose existence He will clearly define His plan and realign parameters in trying the case.

The scope of the entire trial of the ages will shift significantly as will how ultimately the Judge will make final rulings. The Grand Jury itself will be put on notice in its deliberations when reviewing and inspecting evidence.

Gen 11:7-9

 

 

 

Jer 10:14-16

7 - "Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another's speech."
8 - So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city.
9 - Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.

 

To redefine legal parameters in the trial and to ease the Grand Jury's work enabling a clearer form of deciphering the proceedings the Judge will narrow the scope of the legal process by which to try this case. He will introduce a new nation, a change in venue where the case will continue.

Years earlier God shifted proceedings from the heavens to planet earth and in each instance Satan created and fomented discord and chaos which constantly sowed seeds of doubt in the minds first of the host of heaven and later in human minds as to what direction the trial was taking and with it the Judge's personal character.

God chooses Abram a gentile from the city of Ur of the Chaldees to found this new nation. He promises blessings but will require strict obedience in their relationship. The Judge will formalize an agreement with Abram, a Covenant set to redefine the High Court's direction, this Court will refuse to continue in its reactionary style instead choosing to act prudently yet proactive. This Judicial ruling marks a significant change from the way normal court business had been proceeding. In the past the court has placed emphasis on just one person with that person shouldering the weight of accusations and normal day to day legal business. Through this man Abraham the court will enact a Theocratic constitution, a system of laws and a God ordained way of life that mirrors Divine government in Heaven. This nation with its new system will assist in defining how the court decides on issues and be even more transparent on the Judge's character and His judgment of Lucifer.

But there is a more significant blessing which will extend to the rest of the nations, those who agree with God and bless Abram's new nation will be blessed while those cursing it will be cursed. However a permanent blessing shall remain to Abram's linage.

Abram in full obedience to God goes directly to the land of promise where he is shown the land and its borders are defined. God promises Abram this land to him and to his descendants which will be numerous but at the present time the land is inhabited with Canaanite whom God specifies by name.

Abram is grateful and builds an altar to the Lord to commemorate God's promise to him and his people.

The first of this 2 part Covenant God makes with Abram is sealed that day and it applies to only the Land. Which prompts Abram to ask God how does he know this transaction has taken place.

Gen 17:8

 

The 2nd part of the Covenant with Abraham deals with length of time Abram's descendants will own this land and will specify who are Abram's true heirs, the heirs of this land. For that God will change Abram's name to Abraham. From Abraham many nations will come since God promised his name would be great but only one nation is to possess this land forever. God lists in detail who are Abraham's true heirs:

1 - His heir will be strangers in a foreign land.
2 - They will be slaves in that nation for 400 years.
3 - God will free His people after the 400 years of slavery and will walk out with wealth from their former masters.
4 - Abraham will not live to see this but will die in peace.
5 - God gives legal evidence as to how many years is a generation, it is 100 years the time it will take for the Canaanite nations iniquity is complete and the fledgling nation is allowed to return.
6 - In order to set apart the people of this new nation God demands the sign of circumcision
7 - Under the Covenant's precondition those not circumcised will automatically be removed from Court protection.
8 - The Agreement is to be everlasting.
9 - Title Deed to the land of Canaan was assigned to Abraham by the high court and to his direct heirs from His first wife Sarah.
10 - The court issued an eminent domain order within 400 years which may be executed through the use of force.

The plaintiff's attorney's objection to such a land deal was based on various grounds:

1 - When Adam fell he handed planet earth title deed to Satan that meant all parcel of land belongs to him.
2 - The land of Canaan was inhabited by different ethnic groups who had migrated there before Abraham.
3 - Those residing in Canaan should have a court hearing
4 - The plaintiff understood that the court is promoting this transfer of land in order to benefit the defense.

Plaintiff Attorney Objects
to the Covenant

11 - The birds of prey came down upon the carcasses, and Abram drove them away.
12 - Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, terror and great darkness fell upon him.

 

Once the promise of the land was made and the Covenant extending to people who will come from Abraham, God tells the patriarch from whom specifically these people will originate. Despite both he and his wife Sarah, her new name they shall conceive a child who will be named Isaac. The Covenant will be repeated to him and his son Jacob in years to come.

Once again God promises Abraham that his descendants will be as numerous as the stars, to go along with an earlier promise that this people will be as numerous as the sand of the seashore.

Gen 17:2-7, 9

 

Psalm 80:15

 

God hands Abram the Title Deed to the land of Canaan which was signed and delivered only by God by means of animal sacrifices which were cut in two and by a flaming torch and smoking oven passing through it.

The Judge initiated the court process making the agreement binding.

This special occasion between the patriarch and the Lord was not without incident. Satan realizing that God was about to begin a special relationship with Abram meant to defeat him will try and mar the solemn event by having birds of prey (demons) swoop down on the sacrifices and try to carry them off. Abram mistakenly believes that fighting them is the way to keep them at bay. But human effort can never stand up to demonic power and in so doing terror came upon the patriarch. Thus the Lord causes a deep sleep to come over Abram while He signs the Agreement.

Abraham's payment for the Agreement consisted of one tenth of all his possessions to one who represented God on earth.

The entirety of the High Court's Covenant with Abraham was based on faith. Abraham simply believed God and that belief was recognized eternally as righteousness.

The new nation to be found by Abraham under court appointed jurisdiction is under a Covenant love relationship with the Court designed to be governed by a Covenant which expresses and gives clear evidence of the Judge's true values. Abraham's faith in the Judge is of such meritorious commendation that he is eternally rewarded by the court, whereas it is his faith that underscores this Covenant.

The Court under no circumstances will require anything but loyalty to the Judge this Covenant since one the plaintiff's side arguments before the grand jury has been that the High Court initiates bribery and manipulation of witnesses on its behalf.

The Court sealed this Covenant as an unbreakable, unconditional promise to Abraham and to the Court appointed Defense Counselor who will enter the case in the future. No system of law can invalidate this Covenant or any other Covenant ratified by the High Court.

And from your relatives

For I will make you the father of a multitude of nations.
6 - "I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings will come forth from you.

Gift For the Covenant - Genesis 14:
18 - And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; now he was a priest of God Most High.
19 - He blessed him and said, "Blessed be Abram of God Most High,
Possessor of heaven and earth;
20 - And blessed be God Most High,
Who has delivered your enemies into your hand."
He gave him a tenth of all.

Judge's 2nd Signature - Israel's identity with the Land of Canaan - Genesis 17:
10 - "This is My covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you: every male among you shall be circumcised.
11 - "And you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and you.
12 - "And every male among you who is eight days old shall be circumcised throughout your generations, a servant who is born in the house or who is bought with money from any foreigner, who is not of your descendants.
13 - "A servant who is born in your house or who is bought with your money shall surely be circumcised; thus shall My covenant be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

 

 

Plaintiff's objection to the Covenant will be with swift and stiff opposition. Satan refuses to allow Israel from settling into the land of Canaan and establish an earthly Divine theocratic kingdom.

Abraham's legal heirs, his son Isaac and grandson Jacob met great difficulties in their efforts to secure their land finding opposition from local tribes and foreigners as well as insurgent groups. Jacob's family was forced to migrate to Egypt through a miraculous set of circumstances years after the Abraham was given God's 2nd Covenant. That migration was a God inspired and with it opened the way for the family to settle and prosper in Egypt under one of Jacob's sons, Joseph.

Satan did not mind it if Israel prospered in Egypt and grows comfortable there. That would serve his purpose:

1 - Israel would not fulfill the Abrahamic Covenant in Egypt, since the Judge was specific in His Covenant, the land of Canaan was first foremost points of the Covenant.
2 - Egypt was Satan's domain anyway. A land of many gods and idolatry. He believed the world wide drought worked in his favor by God leading Jacob's family into Egypt.
3 - As long as Israel remained away from Canaan, Satan could easily infiltrate the land with inhabitants who were idolatrous and anti Semites.
4 - Due to corrupt nature of Canaanite inhabitants Satan again unleashed angels to have sexual relations with their women reproducing the Nephilim.
5 - Satan could continue his attacks on God on his legal home turf as long as His chosen nation Israel would be happy in Egypt.

The patriarch Jacob had a son, Joseph who through God's sovereign will became a great prince of the then most powerful nation on earth. God's Divine purposes for the life of Joseph and Israel are numerous of which the preservation of the nation remains at the top of the list.

During Joseph's rise as Pharaoh's right hand man and finance minister another severe worldwide famine brought great hardship. Joseph took stepped up measures to combat hunger in both Egypt and Canaan. His legislation prospered Egypt and increased Pharaoh's power and prestige. But as the famine became more severe Joseph's political and financial resolutions amounted to the Egyptian people becoming possessions of the state, and as such wielded Pharaoh greater power and influence. Joseph had Egypt write into its books a statute whereby farmers would be taxed one fifth of their crops as well.

25 - So they said, "You have saved our lives! Let us find favor in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's slaves."
26 - Joseph made it a statute concerning the land of Egypt valid to this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth; only the land of the priests did not become Pharaoh's.

19 - But Joseph said to them, "Do not be afraid, for am I in God's place?
20 - "As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.
21 - "So therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones." So he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.

7 - But the sons of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly, and multiplied, and became exceedingly mighty, so that the land was filled with them.

 

God upsets the apple cart. Approaching the fourth generation from the signing of the Abrahamic Covenant and eminent domain procedures about to be enforced within Canaan, Amorite rule had also reached its end. The Lord influences elections in Egypt and causes a different line of Pharaohs to climb into office. The new despot displays Divine induced amnesia regarding Jewish contributions to his nation and starts a retribution campaign against Jews. Egypt's guest worker program meant specifically for the Jews will be scrapped by the new Pharaoh regime an anti Semitic wave overtakes the nation by storm. Jews zealously kept to their customs choosing not to learn Arabic, Egyptians were worn with having to hear Hebrew spoken in market places, many were annoyed when tours around the pyramids were given in Hebrew at certain hours which Egyptians preferred, when ordering a camel to be taken to the Nile to watch its flooding or a night out in the town to the nearest belly dance Egyptians found camel jockeys were Jews who spoke no Arabic. Egyptians had enough and voted in a new Pharaoh line totally unfriendly to the Jews, one who gained the approval of the people who wanted to see the Jews used to build a wall separating Egypt from the Sinai and prevent further massive amounts of illegal entering Egypt.

It is time to leave the land of idols and settle into their God given homeland, Israel, where God is about to bestow the fortunes originally offered to Adam and to the sons of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Egypt's new government feared the Jews growth within their land and the possibility of a coup attempt if they were to join forces with the old regime. The new government imposed severe labor laws reducing both benefits and previous privileges demanding construction of administration buildings meant to fortify themselves. These harsh measures imposed on the Jews actually backfired as they continued to grow and expand as a people (doing work Egyptians won't do) creating more of an internal problem for Egypt.

The political fallout for the new Pharaoh was so severe that even stricter measures were passed against the Jews regarding government labor, life in Egypt was becoming increasingly more dreadful for the Jews.

The High Court acknowledges

in Egypt

The new line of Pharaohs are
strict anti Semites

8 - Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.
9 - He said to his people, "Behold, the people of the sons of Israel are more and mightier than we.
10 - "Come, let us deal wisely with them, or else they will multiply and in the event of war, they will also join themselves to those who hate us, and fight against us and depart from the land."
11 - So they appointed taskmasters over them to afflict them with hard labor. And they built for Pharaoh storage cities, Pithom and Raamses.
12 - But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more they spread out, so that they were in dread of the sons of Israel.
13 - The Egyptians compelled the sons of Israel to labor rigorously;
14 - and they made their lives bitter with hard labor in mortar and bricks and at all kinds of labor in the field, all their labors which they rigorously imposed on them.

 

The Judge's allotment of 400 years for the iniquity of the Canaanite inhabitants to come to an end coincides with the Jewish peoples desperation as slaves of the Egyptians.

The Judge is now operating under Covenant relationship, the Covenant made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will spearhead the Hebrews exodus from Egypt with intent to be governing laws throughout their projected brief sojourn into the land of Canaan and subsequent settlement.

The Court appointed Attorney's handpicked representative of the Hebrew people, Moses, requests authorization and court order credentials to meet with the plaintiff's representative, Pharaoh.

Moses also petitions before the court what evidence he can provide the Hebrews that he will be representing them not as a defense attorney but as one who is to convince them of their unique standing before the court. They are a chosen race who are direct descendants of the one whom God established the Covenant made with Abraham. Their calling could result in the Judge's ability to try and recover His rightful place on the bench. The hope is that the Hebrew nation once they are flourishing within their God-given land will plead His case before the grand jury.

It is through the Hebrew people's acceptance and fulfillment of court mandated Covenants and laws by which the Judge will specifically define and try this case. Their response, attitudes and abilities to follow such laws and Covenants that determine the Judge's own capability to stay on the case or if the plaintiff's charges that He recuse himself end up being sustained.

Divine Decree
The Judge orders the nation Israel to move toward their promised land.

24 - So God heard their groaning; and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

10 - "Therefore, come now, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt."
11 - But Moses said to God, "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?"
12 - And He said, "Certainly I will be with you, and this shall be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God at this mountain."
13 - Then Moses said to God, "Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you. Now they may say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them?"
14 - God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM"; and He said, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you."
15 - God, furthermore, said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In representation of the court appointed Attorney, Moses became lead mediator between He and the Hebrew people. His brother Aaron assisted as did others on the rescued and deliverance of the Hebrews from Egyptian bondage.

The Judge decreed dated by which to remember the days of bondage and succeeding liberation and established these dates as permanent ordinances.

A new calendar is established whereby no longer the first month begins with the fall but the spring with the 14th day if the first month initiating the Passover feast where all Jews and Egyptian believers in Israel's God were delivered.

The Judge's decrees were given as signs not only of His desire to see to it this new nation realizes it is appreciated by Him but also to show that theirs is a unique nation set apart for future purposes and will be summoned to testify on His behalf. No other nation on planet earth will have such exclusivity and privileges as earth's only true theocracy.

17 - "So I said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey."

Divine Ordinances
Initial Laws handed to Israel as a reminder of their freedom from bondage in Egypt.

1 - Now the LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,
2 - "This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you.

6 - You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to kill it at twilight.
7 - Moreover, they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two door posts and on the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.
8 - They shall eat the flesh that same night, roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A 2nd ordinance is issued by the Judge which is to celebrate another feast on the 15th day of the first month.

12 - For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments--I am the LORD.
13 - The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
14 - Now this day will be a memorial to you, and you shall celebrate it as a feast to the LORD; throughout your generations you are to celebrate it as a permanent ordinance.

43 - The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "This is the ordinance of the Passover: no foreigner is to eat of it;
44 - but every man's slave purchased with money, after you have circumcised him, then he may eat of it.

17 - You shall also observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this very day I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt; therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as a permanent ordinance.

 

Satan's effort to keep Israel in bondage by serving the Egyptians and living within a nation totally given to idolatry was at that time his best weapon against God. He could see God had a plan for Israel intended to culminate in His own vindication. Thus God allowed an increased of persecution on Israel inside Egypt in order for the Hebrews to desire deliverance and return to the land promised their forefathers. Satan countered by using another of his surrogates Pharaoh, insistence on keeping the Hebrews as slaves to him. In yet another installment of God apparently operating more on Satan's side He hardened Pharaoh's heart against the Hebrews to make Israel yearn more and more for deliverance.

Had Israel been able to negotiate better working conditions with Pharaoh they would have had a difficult time in deciding whether to leave Egypt or not. Human nature is prone to want to live in comfort and prosperity disregarding opportunities to reach out for a greater destiny, the old Egypt offered Hebrews just that and trading it for the unknown turned out to be difficult to accept.

One of the defense Attorney's chosen representative chief mission became convincing the Hebrews that they were indeed special to the Judge, but promises don't often occur overnight, but a need to trust their God and His Covenants was imperative.

The original plan expressed by Moses was to take a three day journey to the wilderness and sacrifice to God, then return to Egypt.

God's plan for Israel included sovereignty as a nation and by judging Pharaoh and his army Israel was freed from bondage and repression in Egypt no longer bound to past laws passed in Egypt under the leadership of Joseph, Jacob's son.

Israel now a free nation under God was now under Covenant love established earlier with Israel's patriarch Abraham and would serve as the nation's original constitution and basis for a government Theocracy unlike any other established government on earth. This was the Judge's main intention, Israel was meant originally to be govern under a simple set of laws based primarily on faith in their God. By this He would not only be glorified but at the same time vindicated form His judgment of Satan and his followers.

Israel however rebelled against Moses and God despite God's miracles on their behalf and once again the Judge was forced to issue a new ruling.

But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed.

Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith.

Divine Intervention
On behalf of Israel as well as ending Pharaoh's legal claim on the Jews

4 - "Thus I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will chase after them; and I will be honored through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD." And they did so.

8 - The LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he chased after the sons of Israel as the sons of Israel were going out boldly.

17 - "As for Me, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them; and I will be honored through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen.

28 - The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen, even Pharaoh's entire army that had gone into the sea after them; not even one of them remained.

 

Israel's rebelliousness will require stricter supervision and the people themselves ask Moses to represent them before God but God's priority remains His vindication as sitting Judge in the trial of the ages. With man's inability to be His star witness and the nations have since strayed far from God's ways, only Israel remains a viable hope to demonstrate the Judge's true righteousness.

The law serving as a tutor for Israelites and gentiles who wished to know the God of Israel also is a means to perform the duties required by the court to take the stand as witness for the future defense Attorney. The court requires that testifying either before the grand jury or the Judge be according to the laws issued to Israel.

The Hebrew nation as a whole spurned Moses' council and his representation on behalf of the court appointed Attorney. They refused to enter into Covenant agreement.

Given these set of circumstances the Judge make a ruling which states in essence that God's original plan and his Covenant agreement made with Israel's progenitors will remain in place. This was God's full intention through future generations but Israel's continued rejection of His Covenants and ordinances leaves God no choice but to further define His position through a law system.

A Portion of the Divine Decree
Judicial consent to endorse a Law Covenant, from a Love Covenant

42 - then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and I will remember also My covenant with Isaac, and My covenant with Abraham as well, and I will remember the land.
43 - For the land will be abandoned by them, and will make up for its sabbaths while it is made desolate without them. They, meanwhile, will be making amends for their iniquity, because they rejected My ordinances and their soul abhorred My statutes.
44 - Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, nor will I so abhor them as to destroy them, breaking My covenant with them; for I am the LORD their God.
45 - But I will remember for them the covenant with their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God. I am the LORD. "
46 - These are the statutes and ordinances and laws which the LORD established between Himself and the sons of Israel through Moses at Mount Sinai.

 

The Judge has opted for clarity in this on-going case and His recent most rulings, were made to determine what will be acceptable court conduct in the foreseeable future. His intentions were to redefined how He will hear the case as well.

Moses representing the court appointed Attorney addresses the potential witness, the Jewish people, on Judge's orders regarding changes the high court has made since they were thrust as witnesses on His behalf, on their unique status in comparison to other nations, favors the court has bestowed upon them, and making it clear by giving a detailed description of what their mission is and how to prepare once they are summonsed. Their credibility is a priority as witnesses before the grand jury, and they should be able to testify that no god or person can compare to their God who saved them from the land of Egypt and tyranny.

Moses however clearly stated that failure to live up to what the Judge expects out of them will in turn bring them personal and national disaster.

Israel had already failed to accept Covenant love and requested Covenant law a far more complicated system under which to live. But the Judge is now revealing Himself in a far greater way, He leaves no room for doubt as to what His standards are. Israel has now made life more difficult for themselves yet have opened the way for the Lord God to express His true character and nature.

Israel's Constitutional Law, is God's theocratic form of government, encompassing universal legal values which also contain an established set of criminal and civil laws for a nation.

33 - Has any people heard the voice of God speaking from the midst of the fire, as you have heard it, and survived?
34 - "Or has a god tried to go to take for himself a nation from within another nation by trials, by signs and wonders and by war and by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm and by great terrors, as the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
35 - "To you it was shown that you might know that the LORD, He is God; there is no other besides Him.

19 - "It shall come about if you ever forget the LORD your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I testify against you today that you will surely perish.
20 - "Like the nations that the LORD makes to perish before you, so you shall perish; because you would not listen to the voice of the LORD your God.

 

 

The sons of Israel are Divided into Tribes in Preparation to conquer the Land

Numbers 1:1 - Then the LORD spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting,
on the first of the 2nd month, in the 2nd year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
2 - "Take a census of all the congregation of the sons of Israel, by their families, by their father's
households, according to the number of names, every male, head by head
3 - from twenty years old and upward, whoever is able to go out to war in Israel,
you and Aaron shall number them by their armies.
4 - "With you, moreover, there shall be a man of each tribe,
each one head of his father's household.
5 - "These then are the names of the men who shall stand with you:
of Reuben, Elizur the son of Shedeur;
6 - of Simeon, Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai;
7 - of Judah, Nahshon the son of Amminadab;
8 - of Issachar, Nethanel the son of Zuar;

13 - of Asher, Pagiel the son of Ochran;
14 - of Gad, Eliasaph the son of Deuel;
15 - of Naphtali, Ahira the son of Enan.

 

The Tribe of Levi was Exempted to Become Custodians over the Tabernacle

Numbers 1:47 - The Levites, however, were not numbered among them by their father's tribe.
48 - For the LORD had spoken to Moses, saying,
49 - "Only the tribe of Levi you shall not number, nor shall you take their census among the sons of Israel.
50 - "But you shall appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all its furnishings and over
all that belongs to it. They shall carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings,
and they shall take care of it; they shall also camp around the tabernacle.
51 - "So when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps,
the Levites shall set it up. But the layman who comes near shall be put to death.
52 - "The sons of Israel shall camp, each man by his own camp, and each man by his own standard, according to their armies.
53 - "But the Levites shall camp around the tabernacle of the testimony,
so that there will be no wrath on the congregation of the sons of Israel.
So the Levites shall keep charge of the tabernacle of the testimony."
54 - Thus the sons of Israel did; according to all which the LORD had commanded Moses, so they did.

21 - "Be on your guard before him and obey his voice; do not be rebellious toward him, for he will not pardon your transgression, since My name is in him.
22 - "But if you truly obey his voice and do all that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.



Exodus 23:31 - "I will fix your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River Euphrates;
for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you will drive them out before you.
32 - "You shall make no covenant with them or with their gods.
33 - "They shall not live in your land, because they will make you sin against Me;

flesh and its blood, with its refuse, shall be burned.
6 - The priest shall take cedar wood and hyssop and scarlet
material and cast it into the midst of the burning heifer.
7 - The priest shall then wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and
afterward come into the camp, but the priest shall be unclean until evening.

38 - For throughout all their journeys, the cloud of the LORD was on the tabernacle by day,
and there was fire in it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel.

 

 

The rest of the Law delineates civil, sanitary, ceremonial, moral as well as religious statutes, ordinances, testimonies and precepts necessary to be in full compliance with the Judge's reputation, character and how He will conduct the case.

14 - Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.
15 - For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, holy to the LORD; whoever does any work on the sabbath day shall surely be put to death.

17 - "It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever; for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and was refreshed."
18 - When He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.

 

 

When God the Judge appointed legal counsel to represent fallen mankind, Satan automatically became the plaintiff in the trial of the ages. Originally when the Judge filed a list of charges against Lucifer, he was the defendant. The Judge became enmeshed in somewhat of a legal paradox since He decreed that it would be mankind who eventually would help decide the charges levied by Satan against Him. However mankind failed the Judge in the garden and He being a Judge of impeccable reputation had to address the Man's sin. The Judge still needed mankind and so stated in His judgment but wrote in His opinion that from then on His vindication would come from "a Man"

Satan presented motion after motion asking the Judge to throw out the case since original charges against him were baseless and later asked the Judge to recuse Himself on grounds of mankind's failure. The Judge elected to form Israel a nation from the patriarch Abraham, whom He would allow as a 2nd witness on His behalf only this time largely conforming by obedience to a system of laws. Man has already been indicted and sentenced, meaning Jews as members of the human race are as well. Both Jews and gentiles are under the same court indictment and as such are under the identical ruling issued by the Judge when He appointed man representation in court by a court appointed Attorney.

Israel's role in court would be very different from that of original man as witness. Whereas the Judge's good name depended on man as star witness, Israel as a nation will serve in the capacity of standard bearer of the Judge's laws which will drastically alter the course of how the Judge will continue to hear the case and ultimately rule.

Up to the time of the Covenant the Judge made with Abraham, Satan was holding legal ground since man was in constant conflict and sin, all the while the Judge had to make periodic changes and draw conclusions adjusting to man's depravity. This was playing right into Satan's hand, as the Judge seemingly was deliberating more as an activists Judge's while His court had no apparent direction or ways of preventing Satan from his aggressive yet so far successful onslaught.

The Covenant with Abraham broke ground causing changes both legally and how the Grand Jury would be able to weigh the evidence presented. The Patriarch Abraham will found the new nation created by the court uniquely which will be directly involved in "The trial of the ages."

Rev 12:10

Isaiah 43:10-13

1 Cor 15:56-57

 

The case's venues have been shifting ever since the revolt in Heaven. In the beginning the battle between good and evil and its judgment thereof took place in the heavens, in establishing planet earth the Judge brought the case within an environment where Adam, mankind was able to survive and become the Judge's key witness. In Abraham, since the fall of man the Judge for the final time narrows the parameters of where the battle of good versus evil will culminate.

The court appointed Defense Attorney chose a man, Moses at the inception of the nation's newly found freedom as its legal representative, (the original dream team) to receive The Law ordained by the grand jury of angels to Israel. It will be the work of Moses to instruct Israel on the new system designed to specify the Judge's, character, standards of judgment, His reputation and attributes. The Law will mark out a way to keep the trial in civilized fashion, conducting this trial fairly in its hearing, well organized, consistent, regulated and coherent.

The plaintiff has been creating chaos and confusion on the planet as he has in the heavens. His strategy has been working well in not only garnering a sizable following of angels but without a universal unified chronicled direction from the high court, mankind was extraordinarily and overwhelmingly in Satan's camp. As far as the Grand Jury's work is concerned and for the Judge to conduct this trial, chaos had moved inside the legal process as had each of the trial's previous venues producing difficulties in trying this case.

The Judge instructs the nation of Israel on how to conduct its affairs with simplicity, keeping matters in ways He can communicate to them through Moses their court representative. Once Israel became free from the Egyptians the Judge set a list of basic laws becoming its Constitution as the earth's only theocracy.

The Judge did set a contingency plan much more elaborate of offerings and sacrifices since Israel objected to the court's rulings.

As soon as the Law was put in place for the nation Israel to conduct its internal affairs and the means by which to carry out its foreign policy, God created this nation to function as a theocracy. Should the Jews be able to administrate its own affairs in proper manner within this system, then this theology based set of laws and Covenants would be the means to introduce their God's ways to the rest of the nations. Nations should be able to understand and know this God evidenced by Israel's theocracy and, by freely discerning, able to compare this unique system to Satan's worldwide smorgasbord of theologies.

 

 

 

Acts 7:53

 

 

 

 

Jer 7:22-26

 

The Law is a comprehensive system established by God as Judge whereby He can demonstrate His unique standards, character and rule of law governing His kingdom, which for ages since Satan's revolt in heaven has been under severe attacks and under a cloud of suspicion in the minds of fallen angels. The law is also designed to expose Satan's accusations as fraudulent. Once the high court ratified the law through the grand jury God's true nature became no longer a mystery unrevealed and the Judge no longer could be questioned as far as how He decides in His judgments, governs His Universe and above all exemplifies His unquestioned character.

As was the tree of knowledge of good vs evil, the law's implementation did not correspond to a mode of testing man but to give evidence of kingdom principles. Satan has successfully discredited both objects in mankind's view. The tree was planted in order for God to prove man has a totally free will. The law was given to prove God is perfectly righteous.

Neither the tree or the law were meant to become symbols of judgment. But Satan's assault on mankind turned both into testing, failure and judgment, the tree for mankind the law for Israel and the Seventh day Adventist.

From the moment the Judge revealed His Law and Covenants each and every formal and informal accusation made by the plaintiff against Him would have to stand to the scrutiny of the Law. By this Law being in place the Judge gave notice that He will not recuse Himself from the case since His standards have been presented and exceed any of both man and spirit beings. As the plaintiff's argument for the Judge to throw out the case against him and his clients and man's death sentence neither of these two charges have been ruled on and remain fully viable in court.

Once more this led to the plaintiff's objection as he presented evidence that the case falls on mankind's ability to choose between God and Satan. Since the Judge's witness man has been rendered inoperative in court, the plaintiff contends that the case should still be thrown out while his motions remain valid, all arguments made before the Grand Jury. Upon rejection of such arguments while the Judge continues to hear the case, Satan finds that disrupting the new nations legal course is viable alternative.

The laws, Covenants, statutes, ordinances, precepts, etc. Were a far different form of applying God's approved rule than His previous way of governing through decrees. Unlike the nations form of theology established by Satan himself, the one true God demanded more of an intimate relationship based on Covenant love with Israel who would then be asked to relate such a relationship with sojourners to their land.

What the law is and is not.

 

Heb. 2:2

 

 

 

 

 

Deu 31:16-21

 

The people of Israel demanded clarification of their position within the Law to their attorney before the court, Moses. This Covenant would be performance based; conditional necessitating its full compliance before the court.

The Law was not given as means to curry God's favor, instead as a means of recognizing God's superiority over the gods of gentile nations, other theological systems and Satan. These reasons main objective was to gain wisdom by an instructional method.

The Law of righteousness manifestation, witnessed by the Law and the prophets. The Law proves there is no exception and no distinctions, all have sinned and fallen short of God's requirements.

The Law written by God ordained by angels and established by the High Court. The Law recognizes the fact there is sin in the world and does not dispute that mankind is under an irreversible physical death sentence even for men who were obedient to God. Previous to the Law sin was undefined. The Law defines sin (opposition to God's commands, the breaking of His laws).

The Law is not a merit system which can either purge sin or keep anyone from sinning.

In fact by nature the Law is a system which encourages sin because mankind is born predisposed to sin. The Law is not designed to improve the condition of man's conscience.

The Law was given strictly to the Jews and to no other nation. The Jew is bound to the provisions of the Law for life as long as he so chooses. Should a gentile so desire to place himself under the provisions of the Law he shall be also judged by the law. But is a gentile who decides to live under the provisions of the Law is a righteous keeper of the Law, he is highly regarded and will be a judge over the Jews.

The Law is holy, righteous and good instrument. But it was not designed for physical purposes because it is a spiritual instrument.

The Law recognizes that mankind's self-induced efforts, methods of self-improvement or any kind of humanistic approach at finding favor with God and the court are not possible. The Law is not a means through which any human could ever find fulfillment in their lifetime. Because, the human mind is in opposition to the entire law, the human mind is always thinking of death while the Law is life and peace.

The Law recognizes its weakness and uselessness regarding the condition of mankind and its standing before the court. It also attests to the fact nothing has been perfected by means of keeping it.

The Law recognizes it is only a precursor of a better Covenant and is a mere shadow of a far better covenant.

The High Court shall not give preference as to sin whether outside the jurisdiction of the law or under the law's jurisdiction. All sin will be judged on its own merit.

The law is an no instrument of boasting either for knowledge or keeping it as it is a useless endeavor to do so.

The Law's demands for breaking any of its provisions and guilt shall result is capital punishment on the basis of two witnesses.

The Law under its jurisdiction grants certain authority to provide remedial and temporal adjudication where disputes, contentions, conflicts or any legal matter may arise. As to sins or violation of God's Laws, statutes, precepts, ordinances are committed, or any breach of God's commandments, where any of these matters are concerned, only direct descendants of Aaron and his surviving sons may be consulted and may decide in such matters.

The court will not intervene in any such matters whether individually or nationally as in the case of the nation Israel but does grant heirs of Aaron from the tribe of Levi to rule judicially is such matters. The High Court does not in any way regard nor will pass final judgment in any of these matters without a Court appointed legal counsel in representation of anyone who has a dispute or sins in any matter under the Law.

The Law is not an instrument of full pardon without representation by legal Court appointed counsel.

The Law is an imperfect instrument when it comes to sin.

The Law imputes a curse on anyone who does not abide by its every provision. The Law's provisions cannot be mitigated, breaking one of its tenets involves the entire law.

The Law is not an instrument of works.

The Law was added because of transgression by means of a mediator, not meant to impart righteousness which is why the High Court demands representation by its appointed Attorney.

The Law works as a caretaker a guardian and manager until the date set by the High Court for Defense Counsel may file to enter the case for Defendant. Meanwhile the Law holds defendant under bondage.

The Law only acknowledges sons of the promise, Isaac as legal heirs and as such to be represented in Court by its appointed Counsel. Gentiles are not considered heirs and as such must not participate in the promises authorized to the Jews.

The Law only recognizes sons of Levi to collect one tenth of all income for their services under the Law from the Jews.

Under the Covenant with Abraham where he was instructed to pay one tenth of all his income, this provision extends to the Law since Levi paid tithes as well through Abraham.

The Law acknowledges weakness by the number of priests who must administer service in great numbers because of their deaths.

The Law further acknowledges weakness by its requirement of priests to offer gifts and sacrifices for themselves due to their own sins.

The Law acknowledges weakness by the continuation of priests having to enter the outer tabernacle continually to perform Divine worship. The Law only permits the High Priest to enter the Most Holy place once a year to make atonement for the entire nation of Israel.

The Law was initiated on earth by Moses although he was not from the tribe of Levi as Aaron his brother who was the first high priest.

The Law appoints men who are weak necessitating sacrifices for their own sins.

The Law arouses sinful passions.

In matters where priests and appointed High Priest for that year appear before the tabernacle, temple or synagogue within the outer court, holy place or Holy of Holies. Whether that priest is to settle a dispute tend to any legal matter or address a sin or sins be it personal or for the entire nation once the matter is resolved or the sins are confessed the priest must perform cleansing sacrifices according to the stipulations as set forth by the Law. The priest must be thoroughly acquainted with Laws within the Torah and apply sacrifices in accordance only within the Torah. At no time must the priest apply any other method of sacrifice. Sacrifices committed outside the structure of Torah will result in capital punishment.

Sin is only imputed when the Law was handed down to Israel.

The Levitical sacrificial system was only a temporary solution to the sin problem with very little power.

The Law is only a shadow of the yet future Covenant handed down by the High Court not the imperfect sacrifices as offered by the Levitical priests. Had they been perfect sacrifices, worshipers would no longer have had consciousness of sins. The sacrifices were a reminder of sins on a yearly basis, since animal sacrifices can never remove sins.

If you live under the Law you are bound by the entirety of its provisions.

The Law appoints High Priests taken from among men. While dealing with the misguided he must also bring sacrifices for himself since he is but mortal and sinful. He is obligated to offer sacrifices for himself as for the peoples sins. This honor comes from God when called.

The law of the Lord is: perfect
The testimony of the Lord is: sure
The precepts of the Lord are: right, rejoicing
The commandment of the Lord is: pure
The fear of the Lord is: clean, enduring eternally
The judgments of the Lord are: true, righteous
Servants are: warned and rewarded by them
The Law: brings discernment, acquittal of hidden faults
The Law: keeps its servants from presumptuous sins
The results of the Law: keep servants blameless, acquitted out of great transgressions

The Law passed by the High Court delineates and portrays perfect Kingdom of God principles of which if conformed to would vindicate the Judge's decrees and rulings, as well as any good earthly ruler can govern a nation under its ideal values.

The High Court established guidelines with respect to crime according to the Law. The Levitical priests and judges serving in Israel at the time are authorized to distinguish and resolve matters of 1st degree murder and manslaughter charges. All judgments are to be made according to the Law. No one is tho act presumptuously whether those in charge of the Law or of the lay persons.

The 2nd Law given to Moses at HOREB was meant to expand upon the laws given to Moses at Sinai as the nation of Israel were in the final stages before conquering the land of Canaan and Moses' death was imminent. This constitution of the nation was designated as the only true theocracy on earth and specifically chosen to serve its Creator in its significant legal confrontation between the Judge and the plaintiff's accusations.

Soon after passage of the Law, the Court sought in its wording provisions be made for future violations regarding Israel's inability to live under such provisions. As for Israel's people, because of their obstinance and impatience they did not allow for themselves to understand the real reason for passage of these Law Covenants. God's real intention for His nation was not meant to be a master to slave relationship but a tutor to pupil of God's ways. Instead of being driven to frustration, and subsequent confrontations with God and appointed leaders, Israel should have focused on how privileged they were as God's chosen nation.

 

 

Deu 17:6-13

The High Court Incorporates Administration Of Justice

6 - "On the evidence of two witnesses or three witnesses, he who is to die shall be put to death; he shall not be put to death on the evidence of one witness.
7 - "The hand of the witnesses shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.
8 - "If any case is too difficult for you to decide, between one kind of homicide or another, between one kind of lawsuit or another, and between one kind of assault or another, being cases of dispute in your courts, then you shall arise and go up to the place which the LORD your God chooses.
9 - "So you shall come to the Levitical priest or the judge who is in office in those days, and you shall inquire of them and they will declare to you the verdict in the case.
10 - "You shall do according to the terms of the verdict which they declare to you from that place which the LORD chooses; and you shall be careful to observe according to all that they teach you.
11 - "According to the terms of the law which they teach you, and according to the verdict which they tell you, you shall do; you shall not turn aside from the word which they declare to you, to the right or the left.
12 - "The man who acts presumptuously by not listening to the priest who stands there to serve the LORD your God, nor to the judge, that man shall die; thus you shall purge the evil from Israel.
13 - "Then all the people will hear and be afraid, and will not act presumptuously again.

 

The people's desired solution to confronting national difficulties would be to install a governmental style monarchy, in direct opposition to God's unique shining and exemplary nation to the rest of the world. Jews persisted in a desire to look just like their neighbors and be ruled by a monarchial dynasty.

Through the court appointed Attorney, the High Court handed down to Moses an additional set of laws designed to place controls on any future Monarchy with intentions of seeking to curb potential corruption which normally besieges typical gentile monarchies. Among the controls the High Court imposed on Israel:

God will chose who He will appoint as king over Israel.

He will not chose a foreigner but only a pedigreed Jew.

The Court will prohibit accumulation of horses and any the thoughts of returning to Egypt. Horses were used in battle for many purposes and the Court wanted to ensure Israel was not thinking of war for any purpose other than her own defense and since God promised to fight for Israel there was no need to breed or buy horses.

Egypt was always a romantic thought for the Jews. Being short on memory the Jews affliction, history amnesia, forgetting their last years of the Egyptian ruling dynasty which did not remember their patriarch Joseph treating Jews harshly. Also their 40 hard years of desert sojourning before crossing the Jordan into the land of Canaan and settling it, in turn thoughts of their days in Goshen prior to the unfriendly dynasty would become the norm.

Egypt was also known for breeding fine horses coveted by all nations. Israel's desire to trade with their distant cousin included among other goods, horses for battle.

The court imposed a prohibition on the accumulation of more than one wife. The court wanted to prevent a harem which would keep a king from focusing on the task at hand. Moreover many wives surely would turn his mind away from God in attempting gratifying each one of them.

Another prohibition is that of accumulating wealth. The root of all evil is the love of wealth and God wanted to prevent evil within the future monarchy.

 

 

Deu 17:14-20

The High Court Grants as a Concession to the Nation - a Court appointed Monarchy

14 - "When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, and you possess it and live in it, and you say, I will set a king over me like all the nations who are around me,
15 - you shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses, one from among your countrymen you shall set as king over yourselves; you may not put a foreigner over yourselves who is not your countryman.
16 - "Moreover, he shall not multiply horses for himself, nor shall he cause the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, since the LORD has said to you, You shall never again return that way.
17 - "He shall not multiply wives for himself, or else his heart will turn away; nor shall he greatly increase silver and gold for himself.
18 - "Now it shall come about when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this law on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests.
19 - "It shall be with him and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, by carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes,
20 - that his heart may not be lifted up above his countrymen and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, to the right or the left, so that he and his sons may continue long in his kingdom in the midst of Israel.

 

Levitical priests are the perpetual custodians of the Law and temple artifacts. As such they would be in charge of interpreting the Israeli constitution i.e. the law to the monarchy as well performing official duties with the monarchy. Future monarchs were to have the law inscribed by the Levitical priest in his presence.

Once a king has a copy of the law, he is to study it and become well acquainted with its laws and statutes, so that he may always rule according to God's desire.

Israel would be a unique nations upon the earth, called to exemplify the One true God's nature which was so different from all gentile nations so called gods.

The chief purposes of governing within the law of the High Court were 3-fold:

1 - To prevent pride which is the chief sin before God.
2 - To prevent from not following the commandments since the commandments are God's way of ruling His heavenly kingdom. Since Israel is to be a microcosm of God's kingdom and the Judge's new earthly witness on His behalf to express His heart to all creation, Israel's king must exemplify God's kingdom on earth.
3 - And to ensure a fatherly, honorable succession to the Jews throne.

The High Court Establishes
The Palestinian Covenant
Made With Moses In Moab

This is an eternal Covenant promising the Jews the land of Palestine.
The Covenant takes into consideration that the Jews will fail in fulfilling its provisions.

The Covenant Consists Of Three Parts:
The first allows for the Covenant of Law to take effect,
which is the Court's preferred manner of Government under Theocratic rule.

The second assumes Israel will fail under a theocracy and will request a monarchy.
The Court, under its Covenant preconditions, will appoint Israel's Kings
but expects Israel to fail and fall under the Covenant's curses.

The third promises Israel a future and permanent restoration, but not until a final legal resolution
in the on-going trial and Israel's acceptance of the Court's mandated provisions.

 

The Land Of Palestine Covenant

Deuteronomy 29:1 - These are the words of the covenant which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the sons of Israel
in the land of Moab, besides the covenant which He had made with them at HOREB.
29:9 - "So keep the words of this covenant to do them, that you may prosper in all that you do.
29:12 - that you may enter into the covenant with the LORD your God,
and into His oath which the LORD your God is making with you today,
13 - in order that He may establish you today as His people and that He may be your God,
just as He spoke to you and as He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
14 - "Now not with you alone am I making this covenant and this oath,
15 - but both with those who stand here with us today in the presence of
the LORD our God and with those who are not with us here today.



Deuteronomy 27:1 - Then Moses and the elders of Israel charged the people, saying,
"Keep all the commandments which I command you today.
27:15 - Cursed is the man who makes an idol or a molten image,
an abomination to the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman,
and sets it up in secret. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen.
16 - Cursed is he who dishonors his father or mother. And all the people shall say, Amen.
17 - Cursed is he who moves his neighbor's boundary mark. And all the people shall say, Amen.
18 - Cursed is he who misleads a blind person on the road. And all the people shall say, Amen.

the earth; and there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone, which you or your fathers have not known.

night and day, and shall have no assurance of your life.
67 - "In the morning you shall say, Would that it were evening!
And at evening you shall say, Would that it were morning!
because of the dread of your heart which you dread,
and for the sight of your eyes which you will see.

by the way about which I spoke to you,
You will never see it again!

for sale to your enemies as male and
female slaves, but there will be no buyer."

 

Final Admonition

Deuteronomy 30:1 - "So it shall be when all of these things have come upon you,
the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you
call them to mind in all nations where the LORD your God has banished you,
2 - and you return to the LORD your God and obey Him with all your heart and soul
according to all that I command you today, you and your sons,
3 - then the LORD your God will restore you from captivity, and have compassion on you,
and will gather you again from all the peoples where the LORD your God has scattered you.
4 - "If your outcasts are at the ends of the earth, from there the LORD your God will gather you,
and from there He will bring you back.
5 - "The LORD your God will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it;
and He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.
6 - "Moreover the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants,
to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you may live.
7 - "The LORD your God will inflict all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.
8 - "And you shall again obey the LORD, and observe all His commandments which I command you today.
9 - "Then the LORD your God will prosper you abundantly in all the work of your hand,
in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your cattle and in the produce of your ground,
for the LORD will again rejoice over you for good, just as He rejoiced over your fathers;
10 - if you obey the LORD your God to keep His commandments and His statutes which are
written in this book of the law, if you turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and soul.
11 - "For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach.
12 - "It is not in heaven, that you should say, Who will go up to heaven
for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?
13 - "Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, Who will cross the
sea for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?
14 - "But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it.
15 - "See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity;
16 - in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and
to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply,
and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.
17 - "But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them,
18 - I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days
in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it.

 

Witnesses to the Legal Document

Deuteronomy 30:19 - "I call heaven and earth to witness against you today,
that I have set before you life and death,
the blessing and the curse.
So choose life in order that you may live,
you and your descendants,
20 - by loving the LORD your God,
by obeying His voice,
and by holding fast to Him;
for this is your life and the length of your days,
that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers,
to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them."

 

The Judge's Signature

Deuteronomy 31:26 - "Take this book of the law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God,
that it may remain there as a witness against you.

 

Israel's representatives (friends-of-the-court) before the High Court,
Moses and the Levitical priests, present the witness (Israel) with a legal document
describing consequences and blessings which interpreted the Court's Covenant with them:

 

Israel's apostasy had commenced even before the law was instituted.

One of the new nation's excuses was lacking contact with their representative for a long period of time, impatience took hold of the people.

Among Israel's sins were joining the apostate nations abominable practices such as idolatry, infanticide, sexual immorality.

Israel provocation their legal representative before the High Court, Moses, became so unacceptable, that he needed to occasionally intercede for them before the Judge. One of the major tenets of Covenant Law is assurance of One who intercedes for Israel before the High Court on permanent basis.

Satan through his earthly and spirit emissaries created a chaotic environment for Israel which in turn made Israel violate Covenant conditions routinely. The plaintiff was effectively building his case in order to present evidence to the grand jury that the case's witness and is violating Laws and Covenants.

Satan acting as plaintiff council, continued to gain superior legal advantage with each passing day. Israel's apostasy appeared insuperable given its conduct toward court mandated laws and with the Court's demanding strict compliance the Judge's hope of having a 2nd credible witness at least making an effort in acknowledging His nature is slowly dwindling.

In countering the Judge's decisions at the inception of the trial when Satan on the defensive he used his craftiness and wiles to turn the tide in his favor and ruin man at the same time. Ever since, he has been able to forced the Judge's hand rebutting his charges or risk further chaos both on earth and within the trial itself.

The Covenants help by continually clarifying the Court's positions regarding the Judge's own standing, the defendant and the witness. They also help the grand jury in shedding light on how the Judge's continually conducts the trial and how base future rulings.

Another key facet of the Law and Covenants correspond to is once the Court appointed Defense Attorney files to enter the case, under what legal grounds He prepares and argue the case.

Acts 7:39-43

Jer 11:6-8

Psalm 106:6-36

Deu 18:15-18

 

 

Acts 7:51-53

 

The nation Israel had become apostate for many years after entering the land of Canaan. Frustration with a succession of Judges, the last of whom were the sons of the prophet Samuel who was representing Israel before the High court in his day Israel demanded a change before civil war would erupt.

And so the elders of Israel approached an aging representative of the court appointed Attorney, Samuel and demanded that he name a king over Israel to rule as the gentile nations. The request was offensive to Samuel who understood Israel's laws and Covenants still he prayed about the matter as he was summoned before the court.

Despite repeated warnings by Samuel to Israel the people refused to listen and insisted on a monarchy similar to that of the surrounding nations. Refusing to even follow the provisions of the Palestinian Covenant and a detailed account of all the hardships they will be facing under a corrupt monarchial system by choosing to disregard the Court mandated Covenants.

Israel's first king greatly sinned against God. Among his chief transgressions was sparing Agag the leader of the Amalekites a nation which obstructed Israel while it sojourned in the desert. He then took spoil from the Amalekites an act prohibited by God, who commanded that everything connected with these people be destroyed. Saul was in rebellion against God, and fell into divination, insubordination, iniquity and idolatry.

God commanded Samuel to begin anointing another king while Saul was still reigning. He chose a young man at the time, David. David was a man "after God's own heart" and became the king in whom God would establish a Covenant in which the throne of Israel will be perpetuated through his linage.

The Davidic Covenant will elaborate further on the credentials of the Court appointed, Defense Attorney who will enter the case and leave no room for doubt or confusion who will file briefs before the court to speak in favor of the presiding Judge and represent the defendant, man.

Up to this point the Court in its initial decree stated that man's representative would be of the human race and would be a male. In subsequent Covenants issued by the court, Who and what credentials are necessary in entering the case will be defined further. He is required to be a Jew, strict observant of the Covenant of Law, and all Covenants and decrees ratified by the High Court. Covenants signed into law will elaborate more where Israel's boundaries extend. This Covenant the court is to hand down to Israel's representatives; David and his son Solomon will narrow and specify from what tribe, city and family mankind's Advocate will originate.

The court will leave no room for doubt and give plaintiff no wiggle room in making its case through deception and chaos. Ironically due to the court's witnesses constant failings, plaintiff has been scoring legal hits in court and continued chaos outside the court.

Divine Ruling
The Court issues an Order That Samuel Anoint a King
Israel Embarks on a Monarchy

7 - The LORD said to Samuel, "Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them.
8 - "Like all the deeds which they have done since the day that I brought them up from Egypt even to this day--in that they have forsaken Me and served other gods--so they are doing to you also.
9 - "Now then, listen to their voice; however, you shall solemnly warn them and tell them of the procedure of the king who will reign over them."

 

 

The Covenant
With King David & King Solomon

2 Samuel 7:5 - "Go and say to My servant David, Thus says the LORD,
"Are you the one who should build Me a house to dwell in?
6 - "For I have not dwelt in a house since the day I brought up the sons of Israel from Egypt,
even to this day; but I have been moving about in a tent, even in a tabernacle.
7 - "Wherever I have gone with all the sons of Israel, did I speak a word with one of the tribes of Israel,
which I commanded to shepherd My people Israel, saying, Why have you not built Me a house of cedar? "
8 - "Now therefore, thus you shall say to My servant David, Thus says the LORD of hosts,
"I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people Israel.
9 - "I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut off all your enemies from before you;
and I will make you a great name, like the names of the great men who are on the earth.
10 - "I will also appoint a place for My people Israel and will plant them,
that they may live in their own place and not be disturbed again,
nor will the wicked afflict them any more as formerly,
11 - even from the day that I commanded judges to be over
My people Israel; and I will give you rest from all your enemies.
The LORD also declares to you that the LORD will make a house for you.
12 - "When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your
descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom.
13 - "He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
14 - "I will be a father to him and he will be a son to Me; when he commits iniquity,
I will correct him with the rod of men and the strokes of the sons of men,
15 - but My loving-kindness shall not depart from him,
as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you.
16 - "Your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever;
your throne shall be established forever."


2 Samuel 23:1 - Now these are the last words of David.
David the son of Jesse declares,
The man who was raised on high declares,
The anointed of the God of Jacob,
And the sweet psalmist of Israel,
2 - "The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me,
And His word was on my tongue.
3 - "The God of Israel said,
The Rock of Israel spoke to me,
He who rules over men righteously,
Who rules in the fear of God,
4 - Is as the light of the morning when the sun rises,
A morning without clouds,
When the tender grass springs out of the earth,
Through sunshine after rain.
5 - "Truly is not my house so with God?
For He has made an everlasting covenant with me,
Ordered in all things, and secured;
For all my salvation and all my desire,
Will He not indeed make it grow?


1 Kings 2:1 - As David's time to die drew near, he charged Solomon his son, saying,
2 - "I am going the way of all the earth. Be strong, therefore, and show yourself a man.
3 - "Keep the charge of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes,
His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written
in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn
4 - so that the LORD may carry out His promise which He spoke concerning me,
saying, If your sons are careful of their way, to walk before Me in truth with all
their heart and with all their soul, you shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel.


1 Kings 9:1 - Now it came about when Solomon had finished building the house
of the LORD, and the king's house, and all that Solomon desired to do,
2 - that the LORD appeared to Solomon a 2nd time, as He had appeared to him at Gibeon.
3 - The LORD said to him, "I have heard your prayer and your supplication, which you have
made before Me; I have consecrated this house which you have built by putting
My name there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.
4 - "As for you, if you will walk before Me as your father David walked,
in integrity of heart and uprightness, doing according to all that I have
commanded you and will keep My statutes and My ordinances,
5 - then I will establish the throne of your kingdom over
Israel forever, just as I promised to your father David,
saying, You shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel.
6 - "But if you or your sons indeed turn away from following Me,
and do not keep My commandments and My statutes which I have set
before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them,
7 - then I will cut off Israel from the land which I have
given them, and the house which I have consecrated for My name,
I will cast out of My sight. So Israel will become a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
8 - "And this house will become a heap of ruins; everyone who passes by will be astonished
and hiss and say, Why has the LORD done thus to this land and to this house?
9 - "And they will say, Because they forsook the LORD their God,
who brought their fathers out of the land of Egypt,
and adopted other gods and worshiped them and served them,
therefore the LORD has brought all this adversity on them."

 

The Payment for the Covenant

1 Kings 8:62 - Now the king and all Israel with him offered sacrifice before the LORD.
63 - Solomon offered for the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he offered to the LORD,
22,000 oxen and 120,000 sheep. So the king and all the sons of Israel dedicated the house of the LORD.

The Judge's Signature

1 Kings 8:9 - There was nothing in the ark except the two tablets of stone which Moses put there at HOREB,
where the LORD made a covenant with the sons of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt.
10 - It happened that when the priests came from the holy place, the cloud filled the house of the LORD,
11 - so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud,
for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.
12 - Then Solomon said, "The LORD has said that He would dwell in the thick cloud."
13 - "I have surely built You a lofty house, A place for Your dwelling forever."
14 - Then the king faced about and blessed all the assembly of Israel,
while all the assembly of Israel was standing.

 

 

Years had passed since the exodus of Israel from Egypt and as a nation their subsequent moral failures. Again during the days of Jeremiah the prophet, the nation is reverting to their original sins.

The Judge's anger with His chosen race has exceeded His limits and refuses to extend mercy upon a people who will turn to idols and refuse to obey its Covenants and laws.

The Judge expresses in written form His love and devotion for Israel but denies to hear any pleas on its behalf because of their "vile deeds".

His judgment is meted out because of a large scale conspiracy against His court appointed representative on Israel's behalf.

Prior to the establishment of the last Covenant that will be handed to Jeremiah the Judge will make a series of proclamations determining Israel's immediate future which is not bright. The nation will be headed for judgment and its citizens will be forced to migrate to other nations or be forced to come under a severe oppressive foreign power.

No longer will Israel's theocracy be privileged to be in full representation of the high court since its government leaders and priest were more interested in emulating and making deals with surrounding gentile nations than obeying the will of the Judge.

The Judge through the defense Council's representative Isaiah, directs a specific word of advice to His nation Israel that they better get their act together or He is not willing to continue to make rulings to extend their time of court privilege.

In an unprecedented change from His position the Judge makes a concession to the nation to meet with Him in a spiritual way in order to perhaps cause a change in their direction. Since Covenant law has been in place the court had initially dealt only by way of mankind's defense Attorney and later His handpicked representatives. The Judge has been strict in His judgments and rulings and has made it clear His name and universal prestige is on the line, (He is not making any pacts with sin.) This is plagiarized from Fatah-Man.

Now, right before He is to issue His final Covenant and last chance to the Jews to stop forsaking their calling and before, for the first time, opening a door of opportunity to gentiles and entrance of the defense Attorney into the case, He issues a final summons to Israel to appear before Him.

Judicial Admonition
Prior to issuing a call to Gentiles

16 - "Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from My sight. Cease to do evil,
17 - Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the ruthless, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.
18 - "Come now, and let us reason together," says the LORD, "though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool.
19 - "If you consent and obey, you will eat the best of the land;
20 - "But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword." Truly, the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

 

 

The High Court Establishes a
New Covenant With Israel and Judah
Announced Through The Prophet Jeremiah

Jeremiah 31:31 - "Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD,
"when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah,
32 - not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand
to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke,
although I was a husband to them," declares the LORD.
33 - "But this is the covenant which I will make
with the house of Israel after those days," declares the LORD,
"I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it;
and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
34 - "They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother,
saying, Know the LORD, for they will all know Me, from the least of them
to the greatest of them," declares the LORD, "for I will forgive their iniquity,
and their sin I will remember no more."

 

Covenant With Noah Restated

Jeremiah 31:35 - Thus says the LORD,
Who gives the sun for light by day
And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,
Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar;
The LORD of hosts is His name:
36 - "If this fixed order departs
From before Me," declares the LORD,
"Then the offspring of Israel also will cease
From being a nation before Me forever."
37 - Thus says the LORD, "If the heavens above can be measured
And the foundations of the earth searched out below,
Then I will also cast off all the offspring of Israel
For all that they have done," declares the LORD.
38 - "Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD,
"when the city will be rebuilt for the LORD from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate.
39 - "The measuring line will go out farther straight ahead to the hill Gareb; then it will turn to Goah.
40 - "And the whole valley of the dead bodies and of the ashes, and all the fields as far as the brook Kidron,
to the corner of the Horse Gate toward the east, shall be holy to the LORD;
it will not be plucked up or overthrown anymore forever."

 

Covenant With Abraham Restated

Jeremiah 32:6 - And Jeremiah said, "The word of the LORD came to me, saying,
7 - Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle is coming to you, saying,
"Buy for yourself my field which is at Anathoth, for you have the right of redemption to buy it."
8 - "Then Hanamel my uncle's son came to me in the court of the guard according to the word of the LORD
and said to me, Buy my field, please, that is at Anathoth, which is in the land of Benjamin;
for you have the right of possession and the redemption is yours; buy it for yourself.
Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.
9 - "I bought the field which was at Anathoth from Hanamel my uncle's son,
and I weighed out the silver for him, seventeen shekels of silver.
10 - "I signed and sealed the deed, and called in witnesses,
and weighed out the silver on the scales.
11 - "Then I took the deeds of purchase,
both the sealed copy containing the terms and conditions and the open copy;
12 - and I gave the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the sight
of Hanamel my uncle's son and in the sight of the witnesses who signed the deed of purchase,
before all the Jews who were sitting in the court of the guard.
13 - "And I commanded Baruch in their presence, saying,
14 - Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel,
"Take these deeds, this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed,
and put them in an earthenware jar, that they may last a long time."
15 - For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel,
"Houses and fields and vineyards will again be bought in this land."
16 - "After I had given the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neriah, then I prayed to the LORD, saying,
17 - Ah Lord GOD ! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by
Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You,
18 - who shows lovingkindness to thousands, but repays the iniquity of fathers into the bosom
of their children after them, O great and mighty God. The LORD of hosts is His name;
19 - great in counsel and mighty in deed, whose eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men,
giving to everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds;
20 - who has set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, and even to this day both in Israel
and among mankind; and You have made a name for Yourself, as at this day.
21 - You brought Your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and with wonders,
and with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm and with great terror;
22 - and gave them this land, which You swore to their forefathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey.
23 - They came in and took possession of it, but they did not obey Your voice or walk in Your law; they have done
nothing of all that You commanded them to do; therefore You have made all this calamity come upon them.
24 - Behold, the siege ramps have reached the city to take it; and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans
who fight against it, because of the sword, the famine and the pestilence;
and what You have spoken has come to pass; and behold, You see it.
25 - You have said to me, O Lord GOD,
"Buy for yourself the field with money
and call in witnesses" - although the city
is given into the hand of the Chaldeans."

 

Covenant With Moses In Moab Restated

Jeremiah 32:26 - Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
27 - "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?"
28 - Therefore thus says the LORD, "Behold, I am about to give this city into the hand of
the Chaldeans and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will take it.
29 - "The Chaldeans who are fighting against this city will enter and set this city on fire and burn it,
with the houses where people have offered incense to Baal on their roofs and
poured out drink offerings to other gods to provoke Me to anger.
30 - "Indeed the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah have been doing only evil in My sight from their youth;
for the sons of Israel have been only provoking Me to anger by the work of their hands," declares the LORD.
31 - "Indeed this city has been to Me a provocation of My anger and My wrath from the day that they built it,
even to this day, so that it should be removed from before My face,
32 - because of all the evil of the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah
which they have done to provoke Me to anger - they, their kings, their leaders,
their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
33 - "They have turned their back to Me and not their face; though I taught them,
teaching again and again, they would not listen and receive instruction.
34 - "But they put their detestable things in the house which is called by My name, to defile it.
35 - "They built the high places of Baal that are in the valley of Ben-hinnom to cause their sons
and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I had not commanded them nor
had it entered My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.
36 - "Now therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel concerning this city of which you say,
It is given into the hand of the king of Babylon by sword, by famine and by pestilence.
37 - "Behold, I will gather them out of all the lands to which I have driven them in My anger, in My wrath
and in great indignation; and I will bring them back to this place and make them dwell in safety.
38 - "They shall be My people, and I will be their God;
39 - and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always,
for their own good and for the good of their children after them.
40 - "I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will
not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear
of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me.
41 - "I will rejoice over them to do them good and will faithfully
plant them in this land with all My heart and with all My soul.
42 - "For thus says the LORD, Just as I brought all this great disaster on this people,
so I am going to bring on them all the good that I am promising them.
43 - Fields will be bought in this land of which you say,
"It is a desolation, without man or beast;
it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans."
44 - Men will buy fields for money, sign and seal deeds,
and call in witnesses in the land of Benjamin, in the environs
of Jerusalem, in the cities of Judah, in the cities of the hill
country, in the cities of the lowland and in the cities of the
Negev; for I will restore their fortunes, declares the LORD."


Jeremiah 33:1 - Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the 2nd time,
while he was still confined in the court of the guard, saying,
2 - "Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it, the LORD is His name,
3 - Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.
4 - "For thus says the LORD God of Israel concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of
the kings of Judah which are broken down to make a defense against the siege ramps and against the sword,
5 - While they are coming to fight with the Chaldeans and to fill them with the corpses of men whom I have
slain in My anger and in My wrath, and I have hidden My face from this city because of all their wickedness:
6 - Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth.
7 - I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel and will rebuild them as they were at first.
8 - I will cleanse them from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their
iniquities by which they have sinned against Me and by which they have transgressed against Me.
9 - It will be to Me a name of joy, praise and glory before all the nations of the earth which will hear of all the good that
I do for them, and they will fear and tremble because of all the good and all the peace that I make for it.
10 - "Thus says the LORD, Yet again there will be heard in this place, of which you say, "It is a waste,
without man and without beast," that is, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem
that are desolate, without man and without inhabitant and without beast,
11 - the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice
of the bride, the voice of those who say, "Give thanks to the LORD of hosts,
For the LORD is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting";
and of those who bring a thank offering into the house of the LORD.
For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were at first, says the LORD.
12 - "Thus says the LORD of hosts, There will again be in this place which is waste,
without man or beast, and in all its cities, a habitation of shepherds who rest their flocks.
13 - In the cities of the hill country, in the cities of the lowland, in the cities of the Negev,
in the land of Benjamin, in the environs of Jerusalem and in the cities of Judah, the flocks
will again pass under the hands of the one who numbers them, says the LORD.

 

Covenant With King David Restated

Jeremiah 33:14 - Behold, days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will fulfill the good word
which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
15 - In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David
to spring forth; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth.
16 - In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety; and
this is the name by which she will be called: the LORD is our righteousness.
17 - "For thus says the LORD, David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel;
18 - and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me to offer burnt offerings,
to burn grain offerings and to prepare sacrifices continually. "
19 - The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
20 - "Thus says the LORD, If you can break My covenant for the day
and My covenant for the night, so that day and night will not be at their appointed time,
21 - then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant so that he will not have a son
to reign on his throne, and with the Levitical priests, My ministers.
22 - As the host of heaven cannot be counted and
the sand of the sea cannot be measured, so I will multiply the
descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me."
23 - And the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
24 - "Have you not observed what this people have spoken, saying,
The two families which the LORD chose, He has rejected them?
Thus they despise My people, no longer are they as a nation in their sight.
25 - "Thus says the LORD, If My covenant for day and night stand not,
and the fixed patterns of heaven and earth I have not established,
26 - then I would reject the descendants of Jacob and David My servant, not taking
from his descendants rulers over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
But I will restore their fortunes and will have mercy on them. "

 

 

The plaintiff argued that Israel had been split into two houses, comprised of 10 northern tribes and 2 southern tribes. God, the plaintiff contends has rejected both houses the northern tribes have long been a vassal state of the Assyrians then Babylon, while Judah will be taken over by Babylon as well.

Satan through his agents demanded the case be thrown out of court since the Judge's and defense witness new witness has been literally rejected by the court after breaking all the laws and Covenants.

However the New Covenant states that God the Judge will not abandon Israel. This will continue to be an on-going dispute that will need to be settled in the High Court and is one area the Defense Council is going to have to argue successfully in court since the plaintiff's arguments despite its motive have been accurate. The grand jury in its own findings has determined that there is evidence that Israel as was man in the garden previously have broken decrees, laws and Covenants and as yet no one has stepped forward from the defense who has argued otherwise, including advocates (prophets) on its behalf.

Jer 33:24

 

 

 

 

Jer 33:22

Plaintiff's representatives object
to the High Court's Covenants with Israel and Judah

 

In fulfillment of the Covenant with King David and King Solomon, a proviso to Defense Counsel's certification demanded He would be a direct descendant from David, born from the tribe of Judah and should He succeed in His mission reign in an eternal government.

This also fulfills the Judge's original decree after the fall that His champion Vindicator would come from man and not an angel or any other being.

When Defense Attorney files legal briefs to enter the case, He will mainly argue on the merits of the Covenant with Abraham. He will be making His argument within a Supreme Court of Law in which rule of law comes from the Israeli Constitution, underwritten by the Covenant with Moses.

The laws were written for the people of Israel and as such the court requires strict and unmitigated adherence to every statute, ordinance, precept, testimony and commandments. Failure to follow the court's guidelines as "Son of Man" will result in a court-order disbarment for the Attorney.

The Defense Advocate will also argue as the "Seed of Abraham" or expected Messiah. For testimony before the grand jury, the office of Son of God has to be acknowledged in order to override the death decree imposed by the High Court on the defendant.

In expected motions on behalf of the defendant, the Attorney will contend in part that He is able to execute the requirements of all binding Covenants the Court has issued to Israel successfully and will call the nation Israel to testify as central witness. His primary and critical objective shall be for Israel as a nation to be a convincing witness that He is Messiah and has fully met every provision of the law and Covenants. He then is expected to ask that the Judge remain on the case and not recuse Himself since He intends to prove beyond reasonable doubt and shall ascertain fully that the Judge's reputation is intact and He will do this to the grand jury's satisfaction by not so much as breaking any of the laws provisions and clauses. Defense Attorney will fully propose without reservations at the trials conclusion that the Judge is who He says He is and that His Word, judgments, character and reputation are impeccable.

Once the Judge is able to rule on this motion and deny the plaintiff's motion for Him to recuse Himself from the case, He can hear the Defense's argument on behalf of His clients, mankind, who sits condemned but under a Court mandated stay of execution.

Defense Attorney will argue before the high court not as a Levitical priest, intercessor but from the order of Melchizedek who holds greater status before the High Court, he is an integral part of the Covenant with Abraham. Levitical priests are of Covenant of law and as such of lesser status.

Luke 1:26-33

 

Psalm 132:10-18

 

Psalm 105:8-15

 

 

 

 

Psalm 89:28-37

 

Heb 5:1-4

 

Heb 5:6

 

Luke 4:14-21

 

Those previous representatives / prophets who came in Messiah's name paved the way for His entrance into the case by trying to prepare the witness, Israel. Had Israel, who was given the choice to accept the prophets instructions done so and acknowledged Defense Attorney's role in the case as One representing guilty man and that His counsel to assert the Judge's seat in the case should be acknowledged, Israel may be a viable witness before the grand jury. The Judge who originally sentenced man for his failure in the garden and named its Defense Attorney will not uphold man's stay of execution in the event plaintiff succeeds in driving Him off the case. Israel as witness must achieve its stated purpose on His behalf by confirming Covenant statutes handed down by the High Court.

Israel should understand their place within the Law as pertaining to their chosen status. Many commentaries were written regarding the scriptures such as Torah, Psalms, Prophets and other books but the theme concerning each respectively was missed and regretfully for Israel became a source of great controversy questioning instead who was their Messiah, the Judge's Champion Vindicator and Redeemer of man's sins.

Defense Attorney will testify before the grand Jury and the high Court while taking His case before the people that His role on earth was uncommon and will seek for patience and trust. Using scriptures He will point out reminding everyone that it is important to read the Judge's decree that explained that the Vindicator would be a Son of man or fully human. He will need to be convincing that Court legal instruments express His relationship with the Judge as a Son of God. Further making this case intellectually appealing is His status which is not a role but in fact who He is, Son of God and Son of Man.

The fact the plaintiff-Satan is challenging this in court is understandable because he is lying and trying to confuse the Jews into thinking the One making these claims has ulterior motives and unfortunately he has made and will continue to make great strides in convincing the Jews. This will set the case back because not only the defense loses its main witness but the Defense Attorney will have to take his case directly to the Judge and not only with Satan as His opposition but plaintiff's lists of clients growing and the defense's own client in great peril of complete annihilation through an already handed eternal death sentence.

Christ Jesus' mission began with the vindication of His Father's name. This required living perfectly sinless and holy on earth as a man, once that is accomplished, His mission was to die for sinful and condemned mankind who sits as defendant in the trial of the ages.

 

Luke 4:22-30

 

 

Psalm 2:7

Mat 21:33-42

Mark 3:22

Mat 21:43-44

 

The Judge offered the nation Israel at its inception very nearly the same privileges as He did man in the garden but just as Adam declined the offer, Israel rejected its offer. Israel will be given a reprieve by their Messiah's arrival on the case, who is to be called as witness on His behalf not as a defendant in the case as Messiah argues on the Judge's merit to remain on the bench. Because again Israel's rejection this time of the Defense Attorney, recognizing Him as related to the Judge and as a Jew who must follow the Judge's strict orders, laws, covenants and decrees imposed upon Israel's people, the Defense Attorney runs the risk of having to defend His case without a credible witness on earth. This fact will be highly exploited by the plaintiff, Satan and as such should the Defense argue successfully before the grand jury and court, lacking convincing witnesses should weigh heavily and factor in the sentencing phase of the trial.

The New Covenant supersedes all previous covenants but will not invalidate them.

 

As plaintiff, Satan's objective is to target Israel and if possible obliterate it or render it useless as is already the defendant. There is no doubt nationally, Jews have violated each and every Covenant handed down by the high court and even the Levitical priesthood is in shambles and disarray. His tactics have worked well since Israel is completely apostate and has acquiescence with gentile nations and subsequently succumbed to false religious systems that defy their own laws and ultimately their God's.

As result of the Babylonian captivity Israel was left weakened never returning to its former glory except for a brief period when God allowed exiles to return to their land and begin a rebuilding process that lasted not more than 200 years until the Greeks took over Palestine. Those years were significant nevertheless because until then the high court had not defined arrival of the Champion Vindicator as clearly as it defined many other aspects concerning Him.

The High Court enjoins the fate of the defense Attorney with that of Israel in this decree. Adam's failure in the garden brought severe consequences and quick action from the court against mankind. Yet the court issued in its decree that while mankind would be offered a defense Attorney, He would be the One required to face ultimate judgment and sentence. Satan it was determined in that decree would be who would deal the blow even though the adjudicator would be the presiding Judge.

This decree both lauds and implicates Israel regarding the Champion Vindicator. Should Israel accept its Messiah, in 490 years from the issuing of this decree to rebuild Jerusalem, Messiah will finish transgression, end sin, will atone for iniquity committed, bring everlasting righteousness, seal visions and prophesies and anoint the most holy place.

On the other hand Israel's failure to receive its Messiah means His death sentence in 483 years from the issuing of the decree to rebuild Jerusalem is assured. The seven years left over are destined for one whom Israel will receive, an impostor Messiah.

Another tactic employed by the plaintiff was the corrupting of the entire Levitical system so that by the time the defense Counselor enters the case it will be so unrecognizable from its original form when granted in the Sinai desert. Years of additions and added traditions mixed into the Torah muddied the waters further for the witness and its preparation for the day of testimony, to the point that Israel is unable to recognize the defense Attorney who at the same time would have the ability to restore their kingdom as dictated through their Covenants.

Judicial Decree Regarding the Champion Vindicator
Clarifying further the Judge's decree at the Garden of Eden

24 - "Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.
25 - "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress.
26 - "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.

 

The defense Attorney will counter the plaintiff's accusations in the initiation of a New Covenant sanctioned by the high Court entered into with Jeremiah acknowledging Israel would indeed fail in its witness role but assures its restoration as a nation since it is unlike the Covenants entered into with Moses whereby it is not performance based. In essence the court will issue Israel a free pardon basing it on the agreement between Abraham and Melchizedek. Among its article the New Covenant assures Israel's borders and safe conditions within they are required however to accept the offer from the defense Attorney once he enters the case.

As expected the plaintiff will relentlessly strike at the laws and dissuaded Israel from accepting that offer sparing nothing at his disposal to do so. The laws failure will be a favorite argument along with the idea that self effort in trying to keep it proves its inefficiency. Another tactic will be the use of the political climate of Israel and appeasement with its conquerors along with acceptance of their religious practices.

The plaintiff will use defamatory practices and framing of the defense Attorney, try schemes of entrapment and other manipulative tactics to cause failure before the court. Satan will vilify the defense in ways to distort public opinion of the Counselor for the defense hoping further loss of credibility in the eyes of the Jews will cause a rift between He and the nation of Israel. That should cause a credibility gap between the defense Attorney and Israel.

 

"For I, the LORD, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.
"From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes and have not kept them.
Return to Me, and I will return to you," says the LORD of hosts.
"But you say, How shall we return?

Malachi 3:6-7

As the defendant mankind in the trial-of-the-ages, Israel had become useless before the court as a viable witness for the Judge who continued to try the case but under a merciless, backlash from the plaintiff, Satan and his supporters, which continued to grow. Besides most of the gentiles, His handpicked people whom He called to vindicate His judgments had become even worse. Israel openly defied His statutes, siding with the gods of the gentiles and through friends of the court, i.e. prophets whom the Judge sent to reason with His nation, the Jews mocked and persecuted the same.

Ever since the decree issued by the Judge after the fall in the garden, where He announced among other points that a seed of the woman would challenge Satan's kingdom and predicted though He would pay a great price nonetheless prevail, Satan had been on a torrid mission to identify and if possible destroy Him by any means as he had done to nearly all who oppose him directly.

The mere fact Satan's seek and destroy mission had not netted him this Champion Vindicator albeit causing grief and destruction along the way, he used such fruitless endeavor to increase his accusations against the Judge. Satan had scored two major courtroom victories against the Judge and possibly a third. The first was to destroy the original vindicator, man in Adam by rendering him ineffective as the star witness in the case for the Judge. The other was the nation Israel who through court ordered statutes was to exemplify the Judge's character and kingdom laws before a world who had fallen firmly into Satan's camp it too now had failed for what she was founded. The third did not favor either side, Satan believed Job was the Messiah and motioned to the court and was granted opportunity to grill him before the grand jury of hosts. He hedged his bet that he could break Job and get him through great suffering to testify on his behalf and against the Judge. Had Satan correctly identified the Judge's vindicator and manage to break him, legally speaking the Judge would have run out of options. God would have had to concede half the universe to Satan or incarcerate him, an option which would have gone completely contrary to God's character and thus a chaotic universe would have been guaranteed.

Through a series of depositions and witnesses who were brought before the grand jury acquainted with Job it was easily determined that Job was not in any way that promised Messiah. Job almost broke but did not, however in the Judge's carefully worded decision and admonition to Job, He expressed sentiments of reprimand and laid out elements of what it takes to represent Him by recognizing who He is, Job had missed characterized Him. Job repented and ultimately proved he was a righteous man but a poor Messiah. Satan on the other hand did not make the big catch but laid groundwork for future attempts in locating his counterpart in the trial.

Centuries went by and both the defendant, man and the nation Israel fell into greater apostasy further distancing themselves from the one true God but also the war in the heavens was getting all the more intense with the forces of evil dominating on earth but the host of heaven finding themselves in literal hand to hand combat with the forces of Satan.

The Covenant with King David and King Solomon as well as The New Covenant instituted through the prophet Jeremiah had established the fact that the Messiah would be born in Israel, this fact alone assured Israel to be the object of the greatest wrath of any nation on earth and Satanic forces would spare no power in trying to destroy it. The battle for the right of Israel to exist required God's most powerful being and only archangel, Michael to be set as its defender.

 

13 - "But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia.
20 - Then he said, "Do you understand why I came to you? But I shall now return to fight against the prince of Persia; so I am going forth, and behold, the prince of Greece is about to come.
21 - "However, I will tell you what is inscribed in the writing of truth. Yet there is no one who stands firmly with me against these forces except Michael your prince.

Daniel 8

1 - "Now at that time Michael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued.
Daniel 12

 

The Judge issued other proclamations this time through the prophet Isaiah defining further what the court will require of mankind's appointed Defense counselor's procedure in the trial.

 

3 - You shall multiply the nation, You shall increase their gladness; they will be glad in Your presence, as with the gladness of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
4 - For You shall break the yoke of their burden and the staff on their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, as at the battle of Midian.
5 - For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, and cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.
6 - For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
7 - There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.

Isaiah 9

 

The Judge's proclamation specified that not only Israel's government will rest upon Him but the Kingdom of heaven will as well. The titles accorded to Him gave Him an inextricable bond with the Judge and His defense of His Father's kingdom would become a priority as He argues in defense of client man. Nonetheless the Judge in order to avoid any charges of collusion, nepotism and any conflict of interest with the defense will hold the Defense Attorney to the strictest letter of the law as a citizen of the nation Israel and the Judge's own standard of excellence required to argue His case under the Decrees, Covenants and laws handed down by the court.

The Judge in this case will hold the Champion Vindicator personally responsible for even the slightest violation of kingdom law as well as how He will conduct His life knowing full well that the plaintiff though outside the law will present his arguments based on any actual or perceived wrongdoing by the Defense Attorney. The trial initially will base itself on the Judge's ability to continue to hear the case as He has remained on the bench since the rebellion in Heaven but now the forces of evil sensing eminent victory for the plaintiff side are increasing their assault both in earth and in the heavens.

 

2 - The people who walk in darkness will see a great light;
Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them.

Isaiah 9

2 - "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?
For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him."

Matthew 2

 

The time had arrived for the Messiah / Champion Vindicator / Defense Counselor to arrive on earth and God the Judge of the universe wanted to leave no doubt as to who He is. The holy scriptures did draw a time line based on the book of Daniel which counted the years starting with a decree to restore Jerusalem including streets and sewer, once it was reconstructed from that date 483 will pass until He is killed. Rabbis who studied the scriptures knew by this the general period of His birth. Beyond that, from scriptures they knew the city, that He was to be a man born of a woman and later that it would be a virgin who miraculously conceive and further that a "great light " would illumine this wonderful thing.

Such mystery cloaked within the scrolls in Babylon had its purpose. This Child held the weight of all creation as well as the destruction of the kingdom of Satan in His hands and while He was protected by the high court the Judge would limit His involvement, once the Child became conceived He was fully Man as much as fully God. This dichotomy found only in Christ Jesus, how He conducts His earthly life will ultimately determine the fate of God the Judge of the universe's sovereign rule, man's own fate and the nation Israel's existence. It will require of Him 30 years of intense study and preparation in kingdom law, His relationship with the Judge, His relationships on earth, all the while maintaining a healthy equilibrium living as Son of God and Son of Man.

His life would be lived physically on planet earth yet every bit as a citizen of the universe because closely watching the process of how this dramatic event plays out is the grand jury of hosts who were assembled long ago for the purpose of deciphering the battle of good vs evil and God's very own word.

The great light in the heavens which led the rabbis from the east to where the Christ Child lay was God's heavenly spotlight to once and for all give notice that His Vindicator had arrived on the scene and would eventually file legal papers to enter the case where creation depending on how He successfully argues on behalf of the defense once and for all time either exists in justice and righteousness or descend into corruption and chaos, which is why: "... For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."

The Mission Statement

It is naive to think that the sole reason Christ Jesus came was to die on the cross for mankind. The evidence is overwhelming showing that there is a closely knit relationship between God the Father in Heaven and His Son on earth. But this relationship extended far beyond that of a loving and only begotten Child, there was work to done that needed careful and meticulous effort on the part of the Son. This was never exemplified in any clearer terms than when Messiah was just a twelve year old boy. As the young Christ Child was wowing rabbis in a synagogue when He separated Himself from his parents, upon being located by the frantic parents His answer to their question as to why He had done this set the tone and placed in perspective His mission on earth, "I must be about My Father's affairs"

 

17 - But He answered them, "My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working."
John 5

 

Christ Jesus was never in doubt nor was He on a quest as to who He was or what His calling in life was to be. Early on He understood placed upon His shoulders was a great burden that encompassed and transcended even accomplishments in the natural realm. By the way rabbis and scholars of the Hebrew scriptures became amazed at His words it can be denoted he had a mastery of God's word. As He read and began to prepare himself it became painfully clear to Him that He who had sent Him, the benevolent God of Israel despite the fact He created Heaven and earth and all that it contains, nonetheless the heavens were under great siege and His people did not know their God. Instead of being a great nation under a true theocracy Israel was a mere shadow of what God meant her to be and was under the tyranny of Rome.

 

1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 - He was in the beginning with God.
3 - All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
4 - In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
5 - The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

John 1

 

The young Messiah saw this clearly and understood that His fight was not merely on earth but in heaven as well. He read how ages before the creation of planet earth God's word was put to the test and that this was attributable to a powerful Cherub God Himself created named Lucifer. Again it is naive to believe all this caught God by surprise and that He was being victimized by this Cherub and all He could do was to throw him out of His presence. The facts are that the rebellion in heaven though severe and painful came into being because God wanted to prove a point and that is what He holds dearer to anything- His word. Is He who He says He is? Can His written word stand up to every piece of scrutiny? If His word is His bond then it proves His character, standards, judgments and attributes. Is He the God of Love, truth and righteousness?

Prior to the beginning of time God was already enmeshed in a conflict with Lucifer, who had challenged His word. And all He could do for ages was to counter punch the cherub. Lucifer rebelled God threw him out of His heaven, God created man Lucifer now Satan deceived him, God protected man Lucifer turned man's hearts against God. Both in the arena of heavenly and earthly conflicts as well as the legal domain Satan was making great strides against God, so much so that the seed of doubt about Him was growing by leaps and bound. That is until God laid down the law. Literally He gave the laws of His kingdom to the nation of Israel and with it doubt as to His character ceased. But a law that is not obeyed and defended has no merit and that was Israel's calling to honor her God by living under His Kingdom principles of a unique theocracy who would be a shining example to the rest of the nations. Only Israel failed miserably and ended up testing the Lord's resolve by chastening her but not obliterating her.

God needed man because in spite of his failing the promised One was to be a Son of Man and He needed Israel because the Covenants and law He gave her reveals who the Son of God is. Both preconditions are applicable to Christ Jesus. Now the fullness of time has arrived and God dressed His Word in flesh and blood to enter the arena of the severest test of all. The everlasting Lord of the universe is now Jesus of Nazareth and heaven and earth has been put on notice that God the Father's final alternative to defend His kingdom is at hand.

 

4 - The LORD has sworn and will not change His mind,
"You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek."

Psalm 110

11. Now if perfection was through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the people received the Law), what further need was there for another priest to arise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be designated according to the order of Aaron?
Hebrews 7

 

The Court appointed Defense Attorney enters the case

The last Covenant the High Court issued to the nation of Israel called The New Covenant acknowledges Israel's failure. In it, it states that all previous Covenants had been violated and broken.

Judgment had been withheld because all previous Covenants were underwritten by the Judge of the universe and were entered into as an agreement between the High Court and a patriarch who represented the nation in each case except for the Covenant with Noah which was created prior to Israel being formed.. Israel was given the option to choose to abide by each Covenant had it so wished and as such glorify her God but instead it chose to break them and essentially become as gentile nations in custom and religious practices.

The New Covenant is a much more intimate Covenant in that the Judge said He would write and put it within them and in their heart. This Covenant consists and its makeup encompasses all the others which features at its core parts such as: Israel belongs to the Lord God, where He will rule and reign forever. The Law given to Moses is a system that describes the One true God, His essence and character, and Israel was to acknowledge this. While the Covenant with King David delineated from where the Messiah and man's Advocate would come from. Most significantly however a call to repentance in faith remains as its substance.

 

2 - to whom also Abraham apportioned a tenth part of all the spoils, was first of all, by the translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then also king of Salem, which is king of peace.
3 - Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, he remains a priest perpetually.
4 - Now observe how great this man was to whom Abraham, the patriarch, gave a tenth of the choicest spoils.
5 - And those indeed of the sons of Levi who receive the priest's office have commandment in the Law to collect a tenth from the people, that is, from their brethren, although these are descended from Abraham.
6 - But the one whose genealogy is not traced from them collected a tenth from Abraham and blessed the one who had the promises.
7 - But without any dispute the lesser is blessed by the greater.
8 - In this case mortal men receive tithes, but in that case one receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives on.
9 - And, so to speak, through Abraham even Levi, who received tithes, paid tithes,
10 - for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.
11 - Now if perfection was through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the people received the Law), what further need was there for another priest to arise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be designated according to the order of Aaron?
12 - For when the priesthood is changed, of necessity there takes place a change of law also.
13 - For the one concerning whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no one has officiated at the altar.
14 - For it is evident that our Lord was descended from Judah, a tribe with reference to which Moses spoke nothing concerning priests.
15 - And this is clearer still, if another priest arises according to the likeness of Melchizedek,
16 - who has become such not on the basis of a law of physical requirement, but according to the power of an indestructible life.
17 - For it is attested of Him, "YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."

Hebrews 7

 

The Court appointed Defense Attorney files official court documents under the order of Melchizedek having the following features:

 

1 - "Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming," says the LORD of hosts.
Malachi 3

 

The trial will now make a dramatic shift once the defense Attorney officially enters the case. When the Messiah was born His star shone brightly on Him as a Child, the Judge was then introducing Him to the grand jury while only a few of the devout were able to know Him at the time on earth. Now the Judge was going to announce Him to the world beginning at the sea of Galilee. Thirty years of preparation in Old Testament scriptures and the Messiah had earned His law degree, now He was no longer to remain anonymous and will get His baptism entering the most fascinating trial in creation history.

 

16 - After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him,
17 - and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased."

Matthew 3

 

By making this spectacular proclamation the Judge ends a long silence over the nation Israel while a rare visible demonstration of the entire Godhead is recorded. His status as presiding Judge on the case is now firmly in the hands of the Defense Attorney. Israel is still listed as key witness on His behalf, all His decrees, Covenants, Laws, Psalms and Prophecies are viable and all proclaim Israel a special, unique nation as far as the High Court is concerned. The Attorney will be making overtures to His nation but will do so in a way that recognizes the Mosaic Law in a different light. He will attempt to prepare the defense witness by making her understand as a nation that He has entered the case under full High Court jurisdiction as demanded by the Judge. While the nation is officially under the law of Moses that burden falls on Him. He will explain to Jews that His client mankind is only under a stay of execution and that Israel has failed nationally, both entities have sided with the plaintiff. But the Judge is allowing Israel to testify under the condition that He as Defense Attorney is able to convince Israel to come under the judicial terms.

What is not so obvious is the fact that the Judge's position in the case still remains under dispute since His chief vindicators, man and Israel, find themselves under judgment and on-notice respectively. The Defense Attorney's convincing of Israel literally means He is of Divine nature while the Judge's proclamation establishes that as a fact. The vindication of the Judge, however, must be done on the basis of the Defense Attorney living as a full human being since, in the Judge's long conflict with Satan, the plaintiff's attorney was based on a free willed human entity choosing between the Judge or Satan. Up to this point Satan has successfully rendered both of the Judge's vindicators inoperative, so it is, now, up to the Defense Attorney to pick up the mantle.

 

8 - "And I say to you, everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Man will confess him also before the angels of God;
9 - but he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.

Luke 12

 

The grand jury of hosts also have been instructed to observe that once the Defense Attorney enters the case that He is held to court orders. The vindication of the Judge must be human with no special favors while man's defense must be on the basis of His Divine essence. Toting this fine line must be negotiated by Christ Jesus without mishap or the plaintiff standing motion before the court has to be addressed by the Judge meaning He will have to throw out the case or decide totally against His will and sentence the plaintiff even after successfully arguing its case.

 

5 - For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 - who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time.

1 Timothy 2

 

The trial of the ages now enters a new phase with the Judge's acceptance of His court appointed trial Attorney. Not since Adam had the Judge approved anyone on planet earth to face off with His adversary where vital legal consequences were at stake. Only presently the stakes are much, much higher, there will be no more alternatives for the Judge to turn to. Either His pinning all legitimate hope on Jesus' ability to represent the defendant according to the court's strict stipulations will end in a triumphant, successful conclusion or the entire universe will never be the same again. In Adam the Judge issued but one simple command which was very easily shot down by Satan and forced the court into a defensive posture, in Christ Jesus His representation before the court will be far more complex, since the plaintiff had gained much legal ground in the past 4000 years.

Gone are the days of simple commands, governing the planet through decrees, issuance of a series of laws meant for outward cleansing, of Covenants delineating promises which were later broken and hopes of court representatives i.e. prophets and Messianic types who would put an end to the struggles in the heavens and earth. Satan and his partisans were devouring both in and out of court exposing weaknesses in everything as far as relating to the human race. The grand jury of hosts designed to inspect evidence of corruption in the Satanic system could not form any consensus to charge him based on evidence alone and that increased Satan's boldness and incessant attacks.

Christ Jesus having 30 years to prepare for the case will have to make His defense in two realms, the heavens and the earth, He will need to be Son of God and Son of man, not perform as Son of God, live as "the" Son of God. This critical requirement is necessary in order to give the defendant man a way of escape from the death chamber. Only the one true God can forgive sin but His defendant has to accept His representation before the court or otherwise a man is already pronounced guilty, sentenced and must die eternally. The Judge will only hear argument on behalf of the defendant by the Son of God. Now as God there cannot be even a scintilla of failure in any point of the law, and Covenants, that means both in His legal arguments before the court and personal everyday life. That would invalidate Him immediately from being man's representative in court as mediator. Outside of that, the plaintiff, Satan who would be watching Him closely will spare no effort to point to any perceived Defense Attorney stumble to the court knowing full well his own life and claims to the earth as well as co-rulership of the universe depend strictly His violating Judicial regulations. That is all well and good if the case is tried only on earth. The Judge will simply help the defense with overwhelming might and power and Jesus will deliver an able justification on behalf of the defendant and with morally justified influence proceed to win the case. Besides, Jesus was born with incorruptible blood, not the Adamic blood which is prone to sin and subsequent disqualifications. As far as the defense is concerned the deck is stacked in its favor for a flawless trial and a successful conclusion.

But this trial is also being waged in the heavens where two motions stand before the court. The first is for the Judge to throw out the case based on an unfair, quick and unwarranted decision Lucifer accused God made against him on grounds that there was no evidence he possessed a seditious plot against the throne of God. And when coupled with a lack of a fair hearing to weigh the evidence leading to expulsion from his exalted position, that made it all the more unfair as far as Lucifer was concerned. Second, the Judge's vindicator, man who was created to prove that there was sufficient evidence of a Luciferian unrighteous and seditious plot against God was eliminated as chief witness for the high court and even now stood as defendant in the trial under a stay of execution. Thus Satan has charged the bench directly and holds a standing motion against the Judge to recuse Himself from the trial, a motion the Judge denied but has acknowledged some valid points in favor of the plaintiff. What this all means is that Jesus will have to live as a real bona fide man without the assistance of the Judge and the court, no nepotism admitted, no special assistance, absolutely no use of Divine powers to help in His works nothing that could be construed as favors from the court in arguing the case. The court has permitted assistance in areas where the powerful cherub, Satan clearly will use those powers to destroy any man as Jesus who has emptied Himself of Divinity as far as the trial is concerned.

Jesus will have to live as a human toward delivering the evidence to the grand jury who has been under instructions that a Man will be able to answer the charges levied against the Judge in both motions. He will first have to impress in His arguments that the Judge's original charges against the plaintiff for sedition were legitimate and that He will occupy the requirements imposed on Adam. Jesus has agreed to the court's terms of adherence to handed down decrees, laws and Covenants to such a degree far exceeding the one simple command issued by the court to Adam. But that Judicial order was handed down by the Judge in answer to the plaintiff's motions that the court is slanted in favor of the defense. The trial will proceed fairly with the Judge hearing arguments from both sides. The grand jury has to see that Jesus will not have any advantages that any normal human would have or that would leave no choice but to report that Jesus in fact is not the 2nd Adam. The option as to whether Jesus could sin or not has to be clear. If He is exempt from any possibility of sinning at all then that would disqualify His human status and His testimony before the court will be of no effect. The Judge would then have to decide if He will give His court appointed Attorney a free pass on sin or leave Him with a free will to chose as Adam originally did. The plaintiff will also point this out throughout the trial. Any notion that the Defense Attorney is empowered beyond what Adam was will result in further motions to throw out the case and have him returned to his former status. He will request the release of the chained angels and sinful mankind to remain in such condition. If the Judge denies this then Satan will point out He is not the God whom the Psalms and Prophets proclaim Him to be, in other words He is a liar, and given such scenario chaos would continue unceasing.

Another issue confronting this case and both attorneys personally is the 2nd witness in this case, the nation Israel. The Judge has set Israel as the preserver of those laws and Covenants He is put forth to show His character, judgments and standards, He did so in order to define clearly why He is not stepping down from the case even though the plaintiff has proven the Judge's orders and decrees have failed in court and outside the court. Israel has broken every covenant and failed miserably but the Judge has allowed for her to still testify in court as a gesture of His mercy and two equally vital points. First the Messiah and mankind's representative has been promised to be born, raised and become its citizen and Israel will be given the privilege in spite of her failures to authenticate the defense Attorney. Israel, has been listed as a prime witness in the trial and Jesus will call on His birth nation to testify on His behalf. He will request Israel's testimony before the grand jury that in fact as one who follows the laws granted to it (the Mosaic system) and the Covenants, that He is abiding by the court's rules and placing the court on notice that as a citizen of Israel He is expected to follow its laws perfectly.

Jesus however will not argue His case based on the law of Moses since He has filed to enter the case on the Covenants and as High priest in the order of Melchizedek. In other words He will argue before the court based on the Spirit of the law. He will acknowledge that Israel as well as mankind have broken all the laws and continue to, admitting that His client is guilty and that the witness has not followed the Mosaic law, still He will abide by the Judge's order for Himself but present a new order of human condition and if Israel testifies well on His behalf, He will ask that Israel be given the original status assured within the Covenants. The message to the nation Israel is that a new day is about to dawn, the law was no longer to be a burden, defense Counselor has accepted all of the preconditions imposed by the Judge, while repentance and full obedience to this new order is required.

 

4 - Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you hear and see:
5 - the BLIND RECEIVE SIGHT and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the POOR HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM.
6 - And blessed is he who does not take offense at Me."

Matthew 3

 

The nation Israel's testimony before the grand jury and the high court will be Jesus' claim as Champion Vindicator for the Judge's previous rulings and His claim as Son of God who by His miracles of healing is authenticated, thus able to forgive sin.

Moreover, laws and Covenants if applied can work to govern any society on earth.

 

18 - "Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.
19 - "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 18

 

1 - Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
Matthew 4

 

 

 

Why Christ Jesus Was Tempted In The Desert

Satan had not been sitting idly by since the last Covenant was given to Israel through the prophet Jeremiah. It was apparent to him that all that stood between his victory over the God of the universe and his own demise was the Champion Vindicator the Judge decreed would come one day. But in the garden in the decree issued by the Judge, Satan saw that there was a potential vulnerability to this "Son of the woman" in statement "the (devil) will bruise Him in the heel." Now that He who has been decreed to destroy Satan's kingdom has been identified the devil will pounce on any perceived weakness as he has done for ages working so well in fact that he is within striking distance of his much coveted place of prominence. The raging battle of good vs evil is down to two individuals Jesus of Nazareth and Satan, two distinct kingdoms at war with each other.

It has been ascertained that Christ Jesus will wage a legal battle on the two realms, heaven and earth. In the Judge of the universe's courtroom and out in the court of public opinion. He is representing the fallen human race but is also defending the Father's honor sullied by the plaintiff. In legal terms the Vindicator has to argue successfully on behalf of the Judge to remain on the case in order to draw a conclusion, a final verdict. Without an upright Judge rendering a final decision the case will drag on indefinitely and true peace on earth and a perfect heaven will never come to pass. But while the defense has to fight by the rules, Satan sees no reason to. He believes he has already won this case. Every single being on earth has fallen short of God's glory. And one third of the host of heaven already are siding with him. The other two thirds are absolutely favoring the Judge but watching closely the outcome of the battle brewing between the Son of God and Satan.

Yet Satan knows the Son of Man is more than a man he knows His power and that He preexisted. He knows there is a relationship between He and the Judge and that needs to be addressed carefully and with cleverness. Satan will not relinquish his position nor will he spare force to try and prevent Jesus from defeating him but he does know the makeup of this Champion Vindicator as prophesied in the scriptures. Satan realizes his best opportunity to win this is mostly outside the courtroom where he has his attack dogs who care less about laws and Covenants. He also subscribes to the cognition that the Judge will not go back on His word nor circumvent the law, that much Satan has been privy to for the past ages, he also recognizes that the defense Attorney is of the same ilk.

 

4 - Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 - But He was pierced through for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed.
6 - All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.

Isaiah 53

 

Once Christ Jesus was baptized His public ministry began and so did the trial phase before the Judge. First order of business was the defense Counselor's new life under the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This does not mean He was not the Godhead in one Person it means He was now going to live His life under the full control of the Holy Spirit. The Father will guide Him through the Spirit in order to keep Him from having to use any of His Divine power. But this new life needed to be tested since He was also a man and subject to every human temptation. Jesus was now under court orders and as such had to be obedient to court preconditions. One mistake any fault found in His doctrine, character, the slightest error that could be brought before the court with evidence and the Judge would have to decide right there whether to continue the trial and possibly renounce His seat on the bench. Extreme pressure for any man to bear even if it is the Son of God. But beyond that Jesus accepted the fact His client is guilty as declared by the Judge and as stated in His decree at the garden which carries a death penalty something that the Judge is unwilling to reverse. Mankind has broken the Law beyond measure and in the law there is no provision that can remove the guilt. Sacrifices on behalf of individuals and corporately for the nation of Israel were only a temporary payment designed to keep the court's favor and remain under the stay of execution until the entrance of the defense Attorney. Jesus was now facing a startling reality, an unsuccessful defense meant He fails to vindicate His Father, Satan may have to be returned to power and ownership of half of the universe while all human beings are sentenced to eternal death. While a successful defense and winning the case against the plaintiff means the Judge is fully vindicated but will sentence the defense Attorney to death in full payment for His guilt-ridden client mankind.

 

2 - And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry.
Matthew 4

 

Fully under the Holy Spirit's power Jesus fasted until He came near death. Emaciated and weakened He understood the task that laid ahead a life to be led in impeccable fashion. He would need to avoid emotions and rely on the Spirit. As He walked and taught hoping to convince a nation that its day in court had arrived and that giving testimony on His behalf meant a return to prominence and eternal blessing. He hoped to assure the Jews that they need not wait any longer for the expected Messiah but in fact it was He, that if they would inspect the scriptures and not the religious leaders of their day who bogged them down in meaningless traditions He has arrived just as it was written.

Jesus hoped to instill into the minds of His people that long gone are the days where their nation could be restored to prominence by human power and conventional armies but that His kingdom is not of this world it is within them by just believing His word: who He is, who His Father is and that He has bestowed great love on them but that love is reciprocal, their day of visitation is at hand but He needs their testimony before all creation.

A life like no other, intriguing, fascinating an impossible human walk of life that requires full Holy Spirit enablement and not just as an example to all but mandatory by court order. One meaningless mistake and Satan would not even need to testify before the court, it will not be acceptable to the Judge, His standards and character are all on the Defense Attorney's shoulders.

Satan understood a great deal of what was at stake but he did not know the entirety of the program. What he understood is the weakness of man and he knew Jesus was a Man, he always reverts to age old tactics only he adjusts them depending on the circumstance and other factors which may include a persons intelligence, physical and spiritual desires, environment etc.. What he is extremely adept to though is timing. Satan has spirit beings watching humans closely and knowing whom to dispatch and at what precise moment to inflict damage or to sway into making erroneous decisions that will cost an individual its prize as far as God's true blessings are concerned including his eternal soul. Jesus understood this and it is why His wilderness experience was essential before embarking on His public ministry.

At the fortieth day of a prolonged fast a human body enters a process that literally begins to consume itself until the person becomes delirious and death occurs. Jesus was at that moment when his opponent decided it was time to pay Him a visit. If ever there was a right time this was it. He may be able to get from the One the Judge signaled as His only Vindicator an arrangement to this ongoing, age old dispute. Who knows maybe Jesus would not even live to see its implementation. Satan recognized these points: Something had to be done to prevent Jesus from successfully arguing this case and somehow he had to prevent Him from dying for mankind. Satan had to try to circumvent either one of these two goals of the defense Counselor. Thus Satan approached a weakened Jesus in an effort to settle the case outside of the Judge's courtroom.

 

3 - And the tempter came and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."
Matthew 4

 

Of course, anyone can relate to this! Who has not ever been really hungry and would literally eat just about anything? Multiply any fast by a few more days and you would strike-out the words "just about", for you WOULD eat anything. Multiply fasting by six weeks and God only knows what that state of near-to-death starvation is like. Under way was the optimum testing of a Man, a person in this condition who would have the power to produce food would do so immediately if not sooner. But Satan was not looking for Jesus to feed Himself and keep from dying, his command implicitly gave notice that he understood the nature of this case profoundly. Satan may not ever assume how the Judge would regard a claim (should Jesus had accepted his offer) of Satan taking advantage over a famished Man and outwitting Jesus on a legal technicality. No, Satan should have recalled that a free willed entity called man was created by God to vindicate His name and prove His judgment of Satan was appropriate at the initial rebellion in heaven. Satan knew very well that if he could achieve at least this one time for Jesus to use His Divine power he would have dealt a quick lethal blow to the defense's case and practically win this case without having to fire a single shot. His unfailing next motion before the court would be that the Judge's specifying that a free willed entity, man would bear witness on His behalf has been undeniably broken since Jesus is not only of Divine nature but has used it to His own advantage.

There was still another reason behind this Satanic command and whether Satan understood it or not Jesus was now under the full guidance of the Holy Spirit, not His own. For Jesus to have obeyed Satan (regardless of His physical state) even to prove a point, meant disobedience and again disqualification. Satan was appealing to the senses, reverting to a known tried and true method that worked so well in the garden, only now his prey was not just a curious, naive and foolish pair of individuals, now it was a seriously weakened, close to death Man who tenaciously must guard against falling for fleshly desires. Jesus understood His purpose and time were just beginning, hence how He maneuvers through an extreme temptation will determine His success in trying this case on behalf of the Judge, His client man and His witness Israel.

 

4 - But He answered and said, "It is written, MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD."
Matthew 4

 

In responding to Satan, Jesus served notice He will try this case on His terms and not the plaintiff's. He learned in law school that a good attorney in order to have the best chance at success must fight his legal battle on home turf where it is safest and is better acquainted with the terrain. Satan's intention was to distract Jesus and have Him focus on Himself Jesus was not going to permit it and quoted scripture to best remind Satan that His best tool was the Word of God.

But there was more at stake, Jesus made it clear that He was under strict orders from the Judge and as such the Judge's Word was what He is defending first and foremost. Bread is essential for physical life but it runs 2nd to the Word.

 

5 - Then the devil took Him into the holy city and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple,
6 - and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written,
HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU; and
ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP,
SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.
"

Matthew 4

 

Having failed to lure Jesus into using His Divinity while in a delicate physical state, Satan redirects his plan toward the Word and accepts challenges as far as its legal ramifications are concerned. This is where the devil is better anyway; twisting scripture, finding apparent loopholes in the Word of God, locating possible contradictions and reading something extra into the text to depart from its fundamental meaning.

Satan has charged in court that the Judge has ruled favorably toward His own benefit and that was quite obvious to him in Job's case. In the Job hearings Satan made the charge he was receiving advantageous and preferential treatment from the High Court prompting him to assume Job was the "Champion Vindicator." Here in this 2nd temptation Satan will make the attempt to catch Jesus at His own game, by saying in essence: You want to hit me with scripture, OK let's go that route.

Satan goes to the book of Psalms and decides to choose a portion of Psalm 91 where he knows the reference is to the coming Messiah. The guess work is over for Satan he knows Jesus is Him and meets Him atop the temple. Probably Satan never expected Jesus to go there but he was interested in His answer to the situation posed. His comment to Jesus was more on the line of: You want to try Your case according to the scriptures, there is a scripture written about You which says the angels or the grand jury will not allow You to even strike Your foot against a stone, suppose You throw Yourself down from here, it is clear from what the Judge has stated angels have charge and concern over You. Satan's clever point is the following. Is the grand jury totally in Jesus' favor, meaning is this case totally slanted toward the defense? How about the Judge? Satan's standing motion before the court since the beginning are clear about that and it is why he has insisted this case against me and my supporters be thrown out. And it is why a 2nd motion to have the Judge removed from the case also stands before the High Court. If this scripture is correct in what it says I stand by it and if You want to go in the direction of scriptures then so You must admit what I advocate to be true. Both You and the Judge are admitting that this case has been rigged from the beginning and that means the Judge is not ruling fairly.

On the other hand Satan supposes that Jesus will contradict the scripture. That in itself would be a significant victory for the plaintiff perhaps forcing some kind of resolution to the case outside the courtroom. Jesus' answer disputing Satan would have to be carefully worded so as to not give Satan the impression that the grand jury is biased in His favor. Satan has already convinced one third of the host of heaven, he knows this is a fight for the rest of the host as much as against the defense Counselor. Satan already possesses the kingdoms of the earth and men's souls, should he be able sway the grand jury to his point of view he would yet add another great legal victory. The grand jury is also looking intensively how the attorneys interact and their testimony before the grand jury and the Judge.

If Jesus replies to Satan that angels have already concluded that He is the Messiah Son of God and stand completely for Him then Satan can counter that there are still a myriad of the host of heaven, one third minus those who were incarcerated during Noah's day who still hold an opposing view and again Satan will charge before the court that this trial is not being fairly decided.

This ploy by Satan was an attempt to taint the grand jury by catching Jesus placing Him along side their position, a technicality that could turn the trial in the plaintiff's favor.

 

7 - Jesus said to him, "On the other hand, it is written, YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST."
Matthew 4

 

Jesus' reply to Satan shows He will not come off His game plan and He will not contradict scripture. He lays out an obvious response to Satan. He tells him, your motive for testing Me is skewed. What you are telling Me to do is to commit suicide, an act contrary to the Law of God but then if I throw Myself down angels will prevent My being hurt,

you will then use this against Me and the Judge to further your case. Angels were prevalent in Jesus' life . This test was to see if Jesus would summon angels to prevent His fall had He taken Satan's offer. Is He human or Divine.

In answering Satan Jesus defended His Father's honor. God is not in the business of doing anyone's bidding and He will not accept Satan's offer of questioning the Judge and what He has written. With this simple response Jesus addressed the matter indirectly yet nonetheless He did. When addressing the Judge it is never to test Him but approach with clean motives not absurd.

There is plenty of evidence in the scriptures denoting angels are loyal to the Lord God and His Son, those angels have no doubt about their decision not to have followed Satan as well as obediently ministering to both the Father and the Son. But the hostilities that existed in the heavens and ongoing on earth lies in that the Lord God had not been able to bring a solution through judgment ending such hostilities. It was not going to come through armed warfare although it is still a reality that must be confronted but to bring this to an end the Judge must be vindicated by His word and by the only One who could make the case in a court of law. Satan's position had to be disproved to the complete satisfaction of the Judge leaving no room for doubt, then and only then could He make a final ruling. Up to now however the Judge was willing to place His kingdom on the line if somehow even the slightest portion of His word could be disproved.

Jesus had influence over the grand jury and the Judge based on a personal eternal relationship, even so He will refrain from using intimate affection and familiarity and continue to go by the letter of the law in postulating His views and making His arguments even in the middle of the desert outside the court. Satan will not be given any undeserved opportunity to present inconsistent evidence on that point.

 

8 - Again, the devil *took Him to a very high mountain and *showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory;
9 - and he said to Him, "All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me."

Matthew 4

 

For Satan it was now obvious that his tried and true methods of attacks had no effect against Jesus even in His failing physical state. Man's insatiable need of working for his belly, necessity to be well filled, overall lust of the flesh is a prime area where Satan steers a man's heart toward him. In Jesus' case he failed to get the response he desired.

Manipulating the scriptures to his advantage has been a key to his success but here again he found out that would not work. Now with his options diminished and hope of an out of court settlement believed to be close to out of reach, Satan invariably realizes his chances in court are slim, after all he is called the "lawless one". Satan may even sense Jesus' relationship with the Judge and familiarity with the host of heaven weigh heavily on His side. And he is fully aware that he is the one who has been pressing man to break all the court ordered Covenants and laws as well as judicial decrees issued by the Judge. Satan has virtually no legal grounds left to argue before the court short of either coming to some kind of an out-of-court settlement with the defense Counselor, or trying to destroy Him either in His arguments or physically, the latter he has found to be an impossibility.

Both of Satan's motions to have the case thrown out and the Judge to recuse Himself are still valid but they hinge on the defense Attorney's credible arguments and personal conduct. His other option left is to continue to denigrate the now chief witness to be called by the defense, the nation Israel, here he has found success and will not stop since the Judge has allowed Israel to testify in court pending the defense's ability to see the nation corporately fit to take the stand on His behalf.

Man is already out of the picture, Satan need not have to argue against mankind since the Judge has declared the defendant guilty awaiting execution pending the outcome of the trial. But Satan has one more bullet left in his chamber to perhaps convince Jesus to settle this case with him. The written decree specifying Christ Jesus bearing the grief of man and being pierced for man's transgression, including identified as the man of sorrows has not escaped the plaintiff attorney's notice additionally the decree in the garden after the fall of man states in part that Satan will bruise the Son of Man in the heel. But Satan has also read where the Messiah's destiny is to crush his own kingdom. These facts cut both ways for the devil: he can get to Jesus but Jesus will get him back in a far more resounding manner. After analyzing his options Satan decides to make a bold and calculating move he will use that last bullet and hope he hits the bull's-eye, it will probably be the last offer he will be able to make short of surrendering, an option foreign to him.

Satan meets Jesus once more, takes Him up to another high place and shows Him the kingdoms of the world. Since the fall of man in the garden, Satan laid claim to all nations and its leaders with the exception of Israel and that did not take long before he was allowed in as well. Jesus did not rebuke the devil for claiming he had the rights to all these kingdoms and subsequently listened to what he was going to say next. I will turn these kingdoms over to You in return for Your worship. Satan's offer was basically to turn planet earth back to Christ long before established by His Father, the Judge and where this entity mankind was created freely to choose between God and Satan. Man's failure resulted in this epic struggle which is now coming to a head but Satan's offer to Jesus is meant to soften the blow for Him. What if we stop the trial right here and I will give back all these kingdoms which should have been for Your Father all along. You realize what price You may have to pay in order to recover them, in fact You could set up Your own Kingdom right on earth and avoid the immense suffering which is destined for You. Legally speaking Jesus could turn over the kingdoms to the Judge if He so chooses. But there was one caveat, Jesus was to worship the devil. Satan was asking Jesus to switch allegiance and avoid His cross.

What the devil omitted was the heavens portion of the equation meaning his desire to share the universe with God and be returned to his former position as Covering Cherub In the third heaven. Left undone, had Jesus entertained this latest offer was the Judge's own untenable situation should Jesus have agreed to any short cut either at this time or in the future. At that time what may have been good for Jesus was not necessarily good for the Judge if it meant deviating from the strict plan as laid out for Him by the court.

The devil's offer to Jesus falls right in line with his modus operandi; appealing to the eye, temporary in nature, benefiting him primarily not his victim and contrary to God's wishes. Satan worked his way through when dealing with Jesus in the desert touching just about every aspect of the trial's main parts. In his first temptation he hoped to get a weakened Jesus to set aside His Holy Spirit filled life and use His Divine nature to feed Himself. That would have disqualified His place before the High Court. In his 2nd temptation he tried by misapplying scripture in a way that would show collusion between the court, the grand jury and the defense. In the third temptation Satan used half truths to arrive at a point. It is true all the kingdoms of the world have fallen to him and that includes the nation Israel itself a key component to the trial's outcome. Satan also signified by his statement that even the defense's star witness, Israel, is under his control.Thus there is little hope this nation will ever testify on the Your behalf.

Satan painted an overall bleak picture of what Jesus' future looked like in and out of the courtroom, so finally here was an offer He can't refuse, in fact it was practically the reason He was sent to earth. Satan's generosity looked to good to pass up, Jesus gets the kingdoms back including His nation Israel, a leg up on the trial, appeasement of the Judge and no suffering or eminent death sentence.

 

 

10 - Then Jesus *said to him, "Go, Satan! For it is written, YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY."
11 - Then the devil *left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him.

Matthew 4

 

Jesus' reply to Satan's latest offer came in the way of an authoritative order, to leave His presence immediately. All testing was over, He was strictly and fully under the Holy Spirit's guidance, there was no departure from what course He will follow. He gave notice that the law states: only God is to be worshiped and served and He will remain faithful to both God and the law.

As Jesus heads into judicial proceeding He leaves no room for anything other than His performance before both the grand jury and the high court. His summons to appear before the grand jury to testify and plead His case before the Judge has been issued by judicial writ. And first order of business is to give notice that the Judge has legal power and impeccable character to decide this case. But both the grand jury and the Judge will require that as defense Attorney is abiding by all decrees, laws and Covenants. Satan's impact in this trial has been made by two motions the Judge must decide on and which the grand jury itself is very attentive and concerned about.

The devil departed but is not going to be oblivious to what happens from here on out while Jesus was then approached by angels to be ministered. It is apparent Jesus is close to death and in need of assistance.

With the three temptations, Satan proved to be more than a worthy adversary to the defense. He demonstrated to be very acquainted with scripture, written laws and Covenants, his timing was opportune set to achieve its desired outcome. The devil absolutely lived up to his moniker, casting himself between two in order to separate them. The last temptation became prime example, when he offered Messiah what appeared to be everything on a silver platter yet failing to realize that his Opponent despite His weakened state was undistracted from His prime objective. Nothing would deter Him from prima facie, His Father's, the Judge of the Universe vindication for past judgments.

In the near future this Prince of fallen angels would attempt to thwart the Messiah again with nearly the same offer through a trusted apostle, avoid the severe judgment which lay ahead for Him should He represent the defendant well in court.

 

23 - But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."
Matthew 16

 

The defense's Adversary opposed the court's Divine plan for man's redemption by an insidious attempt to thwart Messiah's execution. In the desert temptation, the Devil sought to stop the execution by bribery, then he attempted to use an innocent, unprepared apostle who felt his well-meaning suggestion would gain him rewards some day.

 

14 - Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
15 - and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.

Hebrews 2

 

Once again the defense Attorney, in His rebuke of Peter, served notice that the strength of the trial consists first on the Judge's interests not on the defendant man. The plaintiff continually sought to control the legal proceeding by steering all testimony away from the Judge's welfare and related interests, opting instead to get mankind to testify on his own behalf a testimony which, under any circumstances, will not be allowed in court.

15 - But some of them said, "He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the ruler of the demons."

11 - Now there was a large herd of swine feeding nearby on the mountain.

54 - He came to His hometown and began teaching them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?
55 - "Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brothers, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?
56 - "And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this man get all these things?"
57 - And they took offense at Him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household."

3 - Then the chief priests and the elders of the people were gathered together in the court of the high priest, named Caiaphas;
4 - and they plotted together to seize Jesus by stealth and kill Him.
5 - But they were saying, "Not during the festival, otherwise a riot might occur among the people."

59 - Now the chief priests and the whole Council kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, so that they might put Him to death.
60 - They did not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. But later on two came forward,
61 - and said, "This man stated, I am able to destroy the temple of God and to rebuild it in three days. "
62 - The high priest stood up and said to Him, "Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?"
63 - But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, "I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God."

29 - And they cried out, saying, "What business do we have with each other, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?"

 

 

 

 

 

The Defense Attorney spent a good deal of time preparing the nation Israel to serve as witness for His case. Israel was to give testimony authenticating His teachings and miracles. (Son of God)

The message was working in pockets here and there and these instances would be used in court as evidence.

 

 

The defense Counsel prepared short term and long term plans designed to explain His purpose to the Jews and extend that message beyond the borders of Israel. (Son of God & Man)


The defense's plan also included in its preparations the inextricable consequences to serving as witnesses for the Attorney. There will be dangers lurking for anyone who stands firmly behind the true message of the defense Attorney.

59 - Not even in this respect was their testimony consistent.

15 - Then the Pharisees went and plotted together how they might trap Him in what He said.
16 - And they *sent their disciples to Him, along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that You are truthful and teach the way of God in truth, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any.
17 - "Tell us then, what do You think? Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?"
18 - But Jesus perceived their malice, and said, "Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites?

11 - Now Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor questioned Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" And Jesus said to him, "It is as you say."
12 - And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He did not answer.
13 - Then Pilate *said to Him, "Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?"
14 - And He did not answer him with regard to even a single charge, so the governor was quite amazed.

22 - His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if anyone confessed Him to be Christ, he was to be put out of the synagogue.

 

How Jesus lays out His defense, based on the spirit of the Law, that is because the Jews had already violated all the laws and Covenants and what He was trying to accomplish was that He was held to those standards otherwise His motion to keep the presiding Judge on the case falls and so does His case. In such a scenario the plaintiff wins by having the case dismissed.
(Son of God)

Also the defense Counsel's mission: to replace Adam as the Judge's vindicator and become mankind's legal representative falls unaccomplished.

The High Court heavily invested in mankind and the plaintiff was making inroads by defaming the defense Attorney (or so it hoped) who literally now bore the weight the court placed on Him.

 

 

Key In trying this case the defense Attorney presented Melchizedek's High priesthood system, under the terms of the New Covenant, replacing the old Mosaic system of Law.

12 - Then the disciples *came and *said to Him, "Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?"

35 - One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36 - "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?"

  • The plaintiff focused on discrediting the defense.
  • Another ploy used was to water down the law by adding traditions and reading into the Torah.
  • The plaintiff understood that by corrupting the ancient writings served as the best possible way to discredit the defense.
  • The plaintiff just needed to create reasonable doubt in the minds of the grand jury as he has done in the minds of the Jews.

7 - The Jews answered him, "We have a law, and by that law He ought to die because He made Himself out to be the Son of God."

  • Jewish religious leaders were so ensnared with Babylonian religious traditions that they dragged their nation down to where they became useless in testifying in the trial.

46 - But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them the things which Jesus had done.
47 - Therefore the chief priests and the Pharisees convened a council, and were saying, "What are we doing? For this man is performing many signs.
48 - "If we let Him go on like this, all men will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation."

2 - And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, and saying that He Himself is Christ, a King."

2 - and they spoke, saying to Him, "Tell us by what authority You are doing these things, or who is the one who gave You this authority?"

52 - The Jews said to Him, "Now we know that You have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets also; and You say, If anyone keeps My word, he will never taste of death.
53 - "Surely You are not greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died too; whom do You make Yourself out to be?"

3 - And some of the scribes said to themselves, "This fellow blasphemes."
11 - When the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, "Why is your Teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners?"

  • The scribes, Pharisees and other religious leaders of the day working for the plaintiff were used similar to how the one third of the angels who followed Satan. Their mission was to sow the seed of doubt among the general population and thereby turn the witness Israel against the defense.
  • The trial's star witness will be unable to be called to testify for the defense. Instead as was the case with mankind the witness will be siding with Satan.
  • The plaintiff attorney successfully argued and is convincing in ascertaining the defendants guilt. Furthermore he has focused on preventing mankind from understanding God's laws and a basic tenet of all court issued Covenants, "Covenant love".
  • Religious leaders called by the plaintiff for false testimony laid claim to the "Seat of Moses" or strict followers of the Law. Using this tactic they sought to disprove the defense's argument that representative Counselor's proof He was Messiah and "Champion Vindicator was not only under the Law but fulfilling it honorably.
  • Religious leaders attempted to trap the defense Counselor into stating something false during their cross examination, the resorted to mixing in traditions and other doctrines in throwing off the defense Counselor.
  • What made this case extremely difficult in which to maneuver was to convince the grand jury the defense Attorney was operating as a human yet at the same time as representative for man He had to convince Israel of His Deity status. One could not offset the other or the entire trial would be jeopardized.

 

As the defense witness was demonstrating signs more and more of unwillingness to testify in court it was apparent that the plaintiff was winning by convincing the nation of Israel that the defense Attorney was an impostor to the throne. It became the strategy of the defense to begin turning to the gentiles and prepare the clients for the long range plan which will include the gentiles as witness for the Attorney.

In His arguments, defense Counselor points out to what is the crux of the matter, which is refusal to accept His testimony. (As Son of God & Man)

  • 4. The presiding Judge's decree that His government rested on the defense Attorney's shoulder, Messiah's failure to adequately represent that phase of the trial.
  • Attorneys for the plaintiff understood, law is what gives sin character thus they relentlessly pursued the Messiah's failure to obey Mosaic laws.

The Defense's Closing Argument

1 - Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You,
2 - even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life.
3 - "This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
4 - "I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.
5 - "Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
6 - "I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.
7 - "Now they have come to know that everything You have given Me is from You;
8 - for the words which You gave Me I have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that I came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me.
9 - "I ask on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom You have given Me; for they are Yours;
10 - and all things that are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been glorified in them.
11 - "I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are.
12 - "While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name which You have given Me; and I guarded them and not one of them perished but the son of perdition, so that the Scripture would be fulfilled.
13 - "But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves.
14 - "I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15 - "I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one.
16 - "They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17 - "Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.
18 - "As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
19 - "For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.
20 - "I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word;
21 - that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.
22 - "The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;
23 - I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.
24 - "Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
25 - "O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me;
26 - and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them."
John 17

 

 

The Grand Jury's Findings

5 - And I heard the angel of the waters saying, "Righteous are You, who are and who were, O Holy One, because You judged these things;
6 - for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. They deserve it."
7 - And I heard the altar saying, "Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments."
Revelation 16:5-7

The grand jury upon hearing all evidence presented from both the plaintiff and defense concluded that the Judge is fit to remain on the case and render a final decision. No credible evidence was presented by the plaintiff that shows any inconsistency in past judgments and no flaws in the character of the Judge were found.

The grand jury was found to have been impartial in its looking at all the evidence throughout the ages despite not having sided with Satan's rebellion in the beginning. The plaintiff did succeed in being granted continuance despite numerous violent acts against God's servants; prophets and saints and the case was prolonged on orders from the bench for the purposes of entrance to the trial of the defense Counselor, who was granted a motion of allowing for time to prepare the witness Israel. Israel failed to testify by siding with the plaintiff enabling the defense to turn to the gentiles who were instructed as defendants in the case and given a cancellation of a punishment in helping Jews to partake in the Judicial decision granting a permanent stay of execution as the defendant's guilt is commuted to the defense Attorney.

The grand jury was convinced that the defense Attorney Himself was without guilt and turned over the evidence of all the plaintiff's witnesses by determining that charges made against the defense Attorney were baseless and the evidence did not support any of the charges.

The grand jury determined that the defendant's guilt fell outside their legal power and did not present any judgment to the court but did find that there is evidence of man's failure to obey the first Judicial instruction in the garden and crimes committed against God and itself. The grand jury carefully observed the actions of the Judge and defense Attorney and decided each is worthy to stand throughout the trial and so handed the Judge its final deliberation.

2 Cor 5:21

Acts 26:22-23

 

Titus 1:1-2

 

Rom 2:11-16

 

 

 

Rom 2:17-24

11 - Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.

9 - No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 - By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.

10 - For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM THEM."
11 - Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, "THE RIGHTEOUS MAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH."
12 - However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, "HE WHO PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE BY THEM."

21 - He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

22 - "So, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place;
23 - that the Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He would be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles."

1 - Paul, a bond-servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness,
2 - in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago,

GENTILES
11 - For there is no partiality with God.
12 - For all who have sinned without the Law will also perish without the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged by the Law;
13 - for it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified.
14 - For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves,
15 - in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them,
16 - on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.

JEWS
17 - But if you bear the name "Jew" and rely upon the Law and boast in God,
18 - and know His will and approve the things that are essential, being instructed out of the Law,
19 - and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,
20 - a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of the immature, having in the Law the embodiment of knowledge and of the truth,
21 - you, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that one shall not steal, do you steal?
22 - You who say that one should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?
23 - You who boast in the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God?
24 - For "THE NAME OF GOD IS BLASPHEMED AMONG THE GENTILES BECAUSE OF YOU," just as it is written.

Jew and Gentile

Rom 9:24-33

 

 

 

 

 

1 John 3:23

Hos 4 - All

Heb 4:15

Rom 3:25-26

12 - For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him;
13 - for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."

24 - even us, whom He also called, not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles.
25 - As He says also in Hosea, "I WILL CALL THOSE WHO WERE NOT MY PEOPLE, MY PEOPLE,
AND HER WHO WAS NOT BELOVED, BELOVED.
"
26 - "AND IT SHALL BE THAT IN THE PLACE WHERE IT WAS SAID TO THEM, YOU ARE NOT MY PEOPLE,
THERE THEY SHALL BE CALLED SONS OF THE LIVING GOD.
"
27 - Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, "THOUGH THE NUMBER OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL BE LIKE THE SAND OF THE SEA, IT IS THE REMNANT THAT WILL BE SAVED;
28 - FOR THE LORD WILL EXECUTE HIS WORD ON THE EARTH, THOROUGHLY AND QUICKLY."
29 - And just as Isaiah foretold, "UNLESS THE LORD OF SABAOTH HAD LEFT TO US A POSTERITY,
WE WOULD HAVE BECOME LIKE SODOM, AND WOULD HAVE RESEMBLED GOMORRAH.
"
30 - What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, attained righteousness, even the righteousness which is by faith;
31 - but Israel, pursuing a law of righteousness, did not arrive at that law.
32 - Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as though it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone,
33 - just as it is written, "BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE,
AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
"

23 - This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.

A sharp and harsh reprimand of Israel, for failure to be faithful to God and enjoy its privilege state.

15 - For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.

25 - whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed;
26 - for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

 

 

The Judge Renders His Preliminary Decision

Israel as a nation was unable to testify in court on behalf of the Defense, its testimony before the grand jury was stricken however the ruling is that Israel will be given another opportunity based on its ability to receive representation from the Defense Attorney first on an individual basis then as a nation according to previous Covenants.

Romans 11:25-29

The Judge inscribes a supplement to the New Covenant formerly known as "the Covenant made with Jeremiah"which seals His approval of the Defense's legal action. The Judge's findings prove His past judicial decisions were fully vindicated.

11 - "FOR ALL WILL KNOW ME,
FROM THE LEAST TO THE GREATEST OF THEM.

12 - FOR I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR INIQUITIES,
AND I WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS NO MORE.
"
13 - When He said, "A new covenant," He has made the first obsolete.
But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear.
Hebrews 8:11-13

 

The New Covenant is co-signed by both the Judge and Defense Attorney.

23 - and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect,
24 - and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood,
which speaks better than the blood of Abel.
Hebrews 12:23-24

 

Upon His successful case defended the Defense Attorney was delivered by the Judge for execution.

11 - Jesus answered, "You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above;
for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin."
John 19:11

 

The Judge's final decision, pending Israel's return to its predestined position.

32 - All the nations will be gathered before him,
and he will separate the people one from another
as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
33 - He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 - "Then the King will say to those on his right,
Come, you who are blessed by my Father;
take your inheritance,
the kingdom prepared for you
since the creation of the world.
Matthew 25:32-34

 

After the 1000 year "Day of the Lord" Satan will be sentenced, arraigned, and cast into the Lake of Fire.

10 - And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone,
where the beast and the false prophet are also;
and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Revelation 20:10

 

Then, individuals who never accepted the Defense Attorney's representation before the High Court
will be arraigned and cast into the Lake of Fire.

11 - Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it,
from whose presence earth and heaven fled away,
and no place was found for them.
12 - And I saw the dead, the great and the small,
standing before the throne, and books were opened;
and another book was opened, which is the book of life;
and the dead were judged from the things which were
written in the books, according to their deeds.
13 - And the sea gave up the dead which were in it,
and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them;
and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.
14 - Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire.
This is the 2nd death, the lake of fire.
15 - And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life,
he was thrown into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:11-15

 

 

Psalm 98:1 - O sing to the LORD a new song, For He has done wonderful things,
His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him.

The initial phase of the trial ended having Defense Attorney very convincingly presenting irrefutable evidence in court and before the grand jury of the Judge's complete vindication. The grand jury found no charges could be brought against Him regarding personal conduct while the Judge's own deliberation demonstrated beyond all reasonable doubt His appointed Vindicator lived up to every Covenant and law set by the High Court. John 17

During in-court proceeding defense Council alluded to judgment coming to the world because the ruler of this world (plaintiff counsel) had been cast out. This reference pointed to a favorable ruling for His case and as such the plaintiff no longer will have permanent access to the bench and subsequent hope of gaining rulership of half of the universe. John 12:31

 

2 - The LORD has made known His salvation; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations.
3 - He has remembered His loving kindness and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

The law places the defense Attorney under court jurisdiction. the New Covenant establishes a potential scenario for the defendant to become related to the defense Attorney. In His ruling the Judge ordered anyone wishing not to be removed from the book of life upon defense Attorney sentence to be executed must accept that execution on his or her behalf. Failure to accept their Counselor's intercession by execution and word will automatically cause revocation of their name from the book of life and be found eternally lost in essence suffer the same fate as the plaintiff attorney and those on his side. The Judge decided not to mitigate the charges against the defendant and He orders to commute the defendant's sentence to its defense Counselor. Hebrews 2:14-17

Defense Counsel understood a successful defense of the Judge's standing in His court would mean His own death sentence the Judge will adjudicate. Nevertheless, the defendant, mankind upon completion of the defense Council's execution successfully effectuated, no longer will remain guilty before the court but each one can have their day in court with full council's representation. John 12:32

 

Plaintiff counsel interpreting the defense's words as meaning the Judge will rule favorably for the defense will make an attempt to stop the execution he knows is the exclamation point to having won a great deal of the case. John 14:30

4 - Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth; Break forth and sing for joy and sing praises.
5 - Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, With the lyre and the sound of melody.
6 - With trumpets and the sound of the horn Shout joyfully before the King, the LORD.
7 - Let the sea roar and all it contains, The world and those who dwell in it.
8 - Let the rivers clap their hands, Let the mountains sing together for joy.

The Judge's special relationship with Israel has been severed due to its inability to testify in court but He has ruled the New Covenant to be in effect and as soon as Israel accepts the Defense Counselor's body of work (as is required of each and every individual both Jew and gentile) the nation will be reinstated with all past promises reasserted. Acts 3:19-21

9 - Before the LORD, for He is coming to judge the earth; He will judge the world with righteousness And the peoples with equity.

The Judge ruled on behalf of the plaintiff on one issue, that being Israel's failure in court to testify as well as stewardship of its land a violation of the Covenant with Abraham and failure to observe its laws, a violation of the Covenant with Moses. Furthermore the plaintiff attorney was able to prove that the majority of mankind as well as the nation Israel remain opposed to the defense's claims and he continues to be the god of this world system. 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

In spite understanding how the Judge will rule in the case, defense Council will accept His fate gladly as One who supports the Judge, exemplified by yielding to all His commandments. John 14:31
