7. A Godlike Overview of EARTH'S END Section Links

In ancient times, people gained knowledge of God's Sacred Truth by the reading of Scrolls of Holy Scripture. The Scrolls from which they read had a wooden roller at each end, and each of the two rollers was called a "tree of life." Thus there was a "tree of life" at the beginning of the Scroll, and another "tree of life" at its end.

This characteristic of the ancient scrolls (on which the individual books of the Bible were written) is another prophetic element of your religious history, and it gives the Earth a wonderful foreshadowing of the ultimate outcome of the entire Bible!

It likewise gives humanity a foreknowledge of the future fate of your Earth, for in the structure of a Scroll of Scripture you can see the Beginning and the End of the planet Earth!

Just like a Scroll of Holy Scripture, the content of the Bible proceeds from a "Tree of Life" in Genesis (the first of its many books), and ends up with a "Tree of Life" in Revelation (the last of the 66 books). In the middle is the long story of humanity -- a history of vast suffering, of repetitious afflictions, and some occasional triumphs over evil. Revelation explains that the "Tree of Life" and a New Paradise are the ultimate destination of your planet Earth.

At Earth's End, there is a New Paradise waiting for the people of your planet!

You have heard stories about that Perfect Earth at the Beginning of human history, the Paradise that Your God first created. But have you ever considered its similarity to that Final Earth which Your God plans as the ultimate destination of human history?

Your God long ago started out with a Paradise Earth, and He plans to end up with a Paradise Earth!

I Myself will achieve this goal, in spite of all the many ailments of this sin-ravaged Fallen Earth in which human beings must presently spend their lives!

I Myself will transform the Earth and make a new world for those whom I consider loyal to My cause. Your God will populate His New Earth with a remnant people that He has kept for Himself. The ones who survive the chaos of the present Earth will be those persons who have placed their faith in Me and My Plan of Salvation.

The population of My New Earth will be composed of those persons who have successfully passed through a Time of Testing in the Broken Earth that they currently experience. They will thus be prepared by Me, approved by Me, and appointed to be the inhabitants of My New Earth.

More details about My grand program of Divine Selection will be given in the latter part of this transmission.

But for now, you should consider some amazing similarities between the First Paradise and that last Paradise which is ahead for Earth. Your God has promised you an ultimate utopia on Earth!

Some of Earth's people consider the Eden of My first Paradise to have been only "mythological," but Your God plans to re-create it as a reality!

There are many parallels between the First Earth and the Last Earth which I Myself am planning . . .

Consider the parallels between the lost paradise of First Earth and the final paradise of the Last Earth . . .

At the Earth's Beginning, there was a Tree of Life in the midst of the Garden, but human beings were not permitted to eat of it.

At the Earth's End, there will be a Tree of Life on the New Earth, and human beings will freely eat of it. The Tree of Life will bear twelve different kinds of fruit on one single trunk, and each Tree of Life will bear its fruit continuously, yielding its fruits in every month that passes by!

On the First Earth, the first humans were given all plant-life and vegetables to be their food supply. There was no killing of animals for food until later, when sin entered the Creation of God.

On the Last Earth, the last humans will again get their food from plants and from the Tree of Life. There will be no more slaying of animals for food.

At the Earth's Beginning, there was no toil, pain, or suffering.

At the Earth's End, there will be no more toil, pain, or suffering.

On the First Earth, God walked with human beings.

On the Last Earth, God will live with human beings again.

At the Earth's Beginning, there was no hostile climate or bad weather.

At the Earth's End, there will be food growing on the trees in every month of the year.

On the First Earth, there was no death, disease, or decay.

On the Last Earth, there will be no more death, disease, or decay.

At the Earth's Beginning, no sacrifices were necessary (until sin entered the world).

At the Earth's End, no further sacrifices will be required of Earth's inhabitants.

On the First Earth, the first humans tended God's Garden.

On the Last Earth, the last humans will take care of God's New Earth.

At the Earth's Beginning, the Sun was in existence as a source of light.

At the Earth's End, the Sun will no longer be necessary.

On the First Earth, the light was provided primarily by the Sun that God had created for the planet Earth.

On the Last Earth, the light will come instead from the brilliance of God, who will illuminate all the world in lieu of the Sun.

Perhaps you could more readily see the comparison if I place all these similar characteristics on two tablets . . . so that you may see them side-by-side, in this fashion . . .

Did you ever see breadfruit growing on the trees in a tropical island paradise, like the ones that exist in the Pacific? On some of these islands, the breadfruit grows every month, all through the year!

Your God has planned something similar for the future of the planet Earth!

Jesus Christ said of Himself, "I AM the Bread of Life."

In a way, you can think of Jesus as a wonderful breadfruit growing on the Tree of Life. It is only by eating of the Bread of Life, which is the salvation of Jesus Christ, that you humans may find access to that Final Paradise which God plans for your Earth.

Your God Himself will be the Sun who illuminates the New Paradise of the Last Earth!

But even today, you should make God the center of your "spiritual solar system." I Myself should be the Sun at the heart of your own internal universe -- around which all other things must revolve. Why is this?

Because you need a brilliant light-source at the center of your thought-system, directing all the interactive elements of your life and world-view!

To be among the remnant that God rescues and preserves for His New Earth, a person must become a believer of God and believe all God's words (His open communication to the human race) as revealed through Holy Scriptures and through God's only true Son, Jesus Christ.

God will show you mercy and forgiveness of your sins only when you come to Him through the sacrificial death of His one true Son, Jesus. Your God has made provision for grace (leniency and forgiveness), but He offers it to humanity only via the substituted sacrifice of the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Any person can be spared on the basis of My Own painful sacrifice, by a belief in the salvation I offer through My chosen Messiah, My only-begotten Son Jesus Christ.

Those "harvested" by Your God for His New Earth will be the ones that have opened the door of the heart -- the ones who have allowed Jesus Christ to come inside, through the Holy Spirit, to take up a residence inside as the New Center of the universe . . . as a brilliant internal light at the center of the spiritual "solar system."

You will get to see God's New Earth only if you have chosen to place His Son Jesus Christ, who within the Trinity of God created your Universe, upon a throne at the center of your heart! He deserves that position and that kind of respect. He was first God The Son, but when born in human flesh he became the only sinless and righteous person who ever lived. Yet he sacrificed himself on a cross for your sake, taking all guilt and sins upon himself, in order that you and your race -- all the people of the Earth -- might be saved from eternal torment. My Son did this, in order that whoever wishes for salvation might be rescued from the due punishment of sins.

All it really takes is a simple but sincere little prayer -- one that you humans should make up in your own words. The prayer for deliverance and for God's leadership should come from your own heart!

You should seek to grasp a solid truth from this communication, something firm and reliable -- something roughly equivalent to the wooden roller of the ancient scrolls of Holy Scripture. I Myself am now reminding you of the nomenclature for that wooden object. The wooden roller was known as a "tree of life," and it was a necessary component of the Scrolls of Holy Scripture. It had a practical function. But you now know that it was also very meaningful. It had a special prophetic significance, unveiling for humanity the Biblical scheme of Earth's history and direction: the Beginning and the End.

Thus, I Myself will conclude this transmission with a repetition of some sacred words from the ancient Scrolls of God's Holy Book . . .

My servant Isaiah has transmitted My words to you in My Book. I Myself have declared in My Book: "Remember the former things, which I did of old; for I am God, and there is no one else; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose." These words which I Myself have spoken are clearly written in Isaiah 46: 9,10.

My servant John has written in My Book: "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. . . And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, 'Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and will be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.' He who was seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!' " These words which I Myself have spoken are clearly written in Revelation 21: 1, 3-5.

My servant John has written in My Book: "On each side of the river stood the Tree of Life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the Tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city of God, and His servants will serve Him." These words are clearly written in Revelation 22: 2-3.

My servant John has written in My Book: "They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the Sun, for the Lord God will give them light . . ." These words are clearly prophesied in Revelation 22: 4-5.
