    Justice cannot be dismissed, because it is a founding principle of Eternal life. Who else has paid Justice for all of us with his own life? And if we reject that Atonement through many ways and philosophies, then we are left to do for ourselves what Christ had offered to do for us. So, then we are left to pay Justice without Christ's Atonement -- "to the uttermost farthing."

    God gave to Moses power to show the examples of God, teaching men. Moses raised snakes upon a stake and promised if the men in his presence would look upon the example they would be healed. A promise of healing and they would not look. If you needed healing and all you had to do is look, would you?

    The Stake was symbolic of the stake Christ was crucified on, the finality of his Atonement. The snakes are the evils and afflictions that Christ through His Atonement heals us from.

    Liberty is a gift of God, that needs to be strived for and always protected in righteousness. Free agency is a trusted principle of God and a way to measure the worthiness of mankind by the choices we make. Therefore we have free agency to accept Christ or reject him. However… these are the last days before the Second Coming, a time of Tribulation as was prophesied. This is a time when The Lord brings judgement before his return. Nations will be judged. What will they be judged for? Those nations who possess the word of God, will be judged according to His words which are written.

    The resurrection is a restoration, meaning the reuniting of the soul (who we are) with the body from the days of Adam to all ages of mankind. The soul shall be restored to the body, and the body to the soul; and every limb and joint shall be restored to its body. Even a hair of the head shall not be lost; but all things shall be restored to their proper and PERFECT frame.

    This is not the end of a restoration, then comes a further restoration, men will be judged according to what they choose to do and what is in their hearts. If what their choices have been is good in this life, and the desires of their hearts were good, then good will be restored to them.

    If what they chose was evil, they shall be restored to evil. Therefore, all things shall be restored to their proper order, every thing to its natural frame. God says do not suppose, because it has been spoken concerning a restoration, that we will be restored from sin to happiness, God has always indicated wickedness never was happiness. Choosing to go without Christ in the world by choice is to have gone contrary to the nature of God. Therefore, they are in a state contrary to the nature of happiness.

    So, is the meaning of the word "restoration" to take a thing of a natural state and place it in an unnatural state, or to place it in a state that would be opposite to its nature? No.

    To understand how a restoration in Judgement goes, evil returns one or restores one to evil again. That is why we must forgive to be forgiven, even 7 times 70. We must be merciful to receive mercy, deal justly, judge righteously and do good continually. If we do these things we shall have mercy restored to us again; we will have justice, judgement for good restored unto us again and we will have good rewarded to us. This is where the saying comes from, What goes around from us, comes around to us.

    But the word restoration more fully condemns those who choose evil, and justifies him not at all.

    GOD speaks and the ground trembles. Because of sound? Because of strength? That is not the reason. Nothing is inert. Mountains are obedient and will move on the utterance of GOD. All elements have the nature to follow the voice of GOD and bring to fulfillment His will.

    How is that possible? Because all things have their own living spirit. Even our bodies are created from the elements of the earth.

    "We cannot say, at that moment of judgement we will repent, that we will return to God. We cannot say this; for that same spirit which is you, as you lay down your body to go out of this life, that same spirit will be who you are in the eternal world. And at that time there can be no labor performed for repentance. This is the day to learn, experience and prepare.

    It is given to all those who strive to turn their lives to God, exercise faith and goodness, praying sincerely always to know the mysteries of God: yes, these shall be given to reveal things which never have been revealed, and it shall be given to these to bring thousands of souls to repentance. First learn the meaning of the word of God.

    "The earth moves with purpose and logic. There is a creator. It couldn't happen by itself." Gene Cernan - walked on the moon.

    The earth is an oasis of intelligent purpose through and through all it's systems. That includes you.

    Let's talk about Eve:

    The Lord God said, Genesis 2: 15 "And the Lord God commanded the man saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat (permission).
    Gene. 2:16 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." This tree has consequences.

    In the commandment the Lord God said, You can eat from ANY of the trees in this garden. But, (God gives free agency and a warning) of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: Because this tree brings death of mortality." So the properties of this tree brings about death which is contrary to a life eternal where there is no death, and with Satan there is no free agency, therefore being tempted to choose evil over the gifts of God brings terrible results.

    So there are two things going on here, if Adam and Eve stay in the garden -- because they decided they did not want to have knowledge or children and certainly they did not want mortal lives where they die in a thousand years, (one day to God is a 1000 years) then stay away from that tree.

    This choice includes with their free agency to live in ignorant bliss, just the two of them.

    Along comes Satan, and his motive is to build up his own Kingdom and thwart the plans of God. So he asks Eve a question he already knows the answer to, "Has God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

    Eve answers the serpent saying, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. But God warned, Don't eat the the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden don't even touch it or, "You will die." It was a very lethal tree.

    The serpent said, No way, you won't die. God knows that if you eat of that tree you will gain knowledge and you will be like gods, knowing what they know, good and evil.

    Eve saw that fruit was edible and that it was also pleasant to look at, both very nice qualities, but that wouldn't be enough for her to choose to touch that tree, because the other trees of many, had delicious fruit, perfect fruit, fruit that one could never get tired of, but what those other trees did not have, is the ability to make her and Adam wise.

    She also convinced Adam that knowledge is good and he took a bite. Now they both began an ability to recognize and solve problems. They knew they would be discovered by their Father God. Therefore, like most mortals, they thought if they hide, God would not see them. And so it begins.
    Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden having to live in a world where there is both good and evil and their education begins even with experiencing sorrow. Yes, but, there is also a blessing that goes with it, a great plan of God. He granted unto Eve conception, children, the love of our lives. The snake got cursed and Adam and Eve got children in the middle of their free agency and sorrow of hard times.

    So let's fast track to Revelations 11: 10 where we discover that God knew how he was going to work good for the children of God in the middle of the Garden of Eden. To God the garden was the pathway for all of us to learn important lessons, to prove where our hearts and intents are and to earn trusted Glory for further plans for those children with right hearts:

    Satan was cast down to earth with those spirits who became his followers against heavenly Father. And this is the same place He put Adam and Eve. See the plan? We are here, because of that Plan which Adam and Eve did not fail in achieving.

    "And I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, Now is come salvation and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ!"
    "REJOICE ye heavens and ye that dwell in them! "

    Satan "knoweth that he hath but a short time."
