The seeming paradox that GOD foreknew Adam & Eve would be disobedient,
yet GOD Who is All Powerful, All Knowing, and All seeing could have prevented it;
is one of the mysteries of theology, yes? Here is a devout questioning reflection.
Can it be disproven that since 1,000 years passes as a day to The Lord;(ref. Psalms)
“But beloved, do not let this one thing be hidden from you, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.” – 2 Peter 3:8
That The Lord, knowing our nature, that we must be taught like children,
to learn obedience – anyone who has the possibility of Salvation through
Jesus The Beloved Anointed One, Savior – all men & women are like Adam & Eve;
why we must endure a seeming long arduous journey whereby pain if for
a night but joy is in the morning? That there really was a Garden of Eden,
showing our need to learn obedience, “before a seed was planted…”???
If this is the case, the the First Day is visited on every Day;
with the Lord separating The Light (sentient human beings
listening to messengers like Michael “Who is like GOD?”
to be purified;
with a full act of the free human will betray JESUS,
not just temporarily like Peter deny The Messiah Son of GOD,
One in Being with GOD, Only Divine Mediator between GOD
and humankind; however,
blaspheming The Holy Spirit, the only unforgivable sin,
listening to messengers like Lucifer (“I will not serve, leaning upon
my own understanding, wise in my own eyes, son of the morning,
angel of darkness seducing as an angel of light”),
from The Darkness???
Can it be, that similar to JESUS, although we each have unearned
and earned suffering; in the end, each of our unearned sufferings,
will be like a bruised heel, as we are purified for final joy,
the Beatific vision? As challenges in the thankful participation
in JESUS The Beloved Anointed One, in purified adoration
of GOD, right ‘worthship’ worship of GOD – in work,
be it any kind of work; providing provisions, music, art,
writing – it will never be by the sweat of our brows again.
Pain, anguish & war no more; every tear wiped away;
all things made new, living in exceeding Joy of The Lord,
However, The Devil and His Angels along with those
who freely chose loss of Salvation, living in a tangible
sentient imaginary plane of existence similar to how
the square root of negative numbers are dealt with.
We being by JESUS, His Merits, His Divine Favor,
His Strength, impossible for humanity –
will never have our sentient consciousness
tricked from the antithesis of GOD sentient
imaginary plane of existence again.
The completion of Light separated form Darkness.
Psalm 110, and 149, and Matthew 25 will have
to be carried out, though. And in doing this journey,
guided by JESUS Seated On His Glorious Thrown,
and All Powerful Divine Office of Priest, Prophet,
King of kings, Lord of lords, – many Diadems;
with His Holy Angels – The 144,000 and those
of every nation, kindred, and language with robes
dipped in the Blood of The Lamb Written in The Book of Life;
will have prayer retreats and clean up our earthly obligations.
Something like this seems plausible, yes???
It seems as though someone more knowledgeable than I can
help those refuting Salvation by JESUS Only, using
the philosophical scientific arguments of (the hard problem of consciousness),
(the problem of evil), and (why would JESUS Ascend?)…. wouldn’t something
like this bolster the intellectual tradition of The Church to give faith
and reason discussion points? The scientist are coming up with
‘event horizon’ physics ideas that seem to bolster Einstein’s
idea of ‘dimension(s)’ 90 degrees from everything.
(i.e. black holes cannot be seen into, and the farthest reaches of the visible
universe as an event horizon that cannot be seen past.)
Even supposing things like we are a ‘computer simulation’ to beings higher than us,
as we are higher than apes. Or the universe is a hologram.
They admit, there is something else. Cannot some see how callous
their suppositions are in the face of our innate sentient human
desire for the ideals of justice(diligently seeking every human
being coming into the world through the womb, their just due,
for the ordered common good??? Peace this Holy Saturday!
A heartfelt stay well, and be well wishes. Thank you for your time.
In the day that the Lord[a] God made the earth and the heavens, 5 when no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no one to till the ground; 6 but a stream would rise from the earth, and water the whole face of the ground— 7 then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground,[b] and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. 8 And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9 Out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 A river flows out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it divides and becomes four branches.
” Six Days of Creation and the Sabbath
1 In the beginning when God created[a] the heavens and the earth, 2 the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God[b] swept over the face of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And 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, the first day.
6 And God said, “Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so. 8 God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.
9 And God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.”
