Eternal Torment? Part 22: “Ignoring Scripture”

To read Part 1, click here… “September 8th (Eternal Torment?)”

“I have seen the travail,

which God hath given to the sons of men

to be exercised in it.

He hath made every thing beautiful in His time:”

Ecclesiastes 3:10, 11

.

.

.

.

.

It seems that this above passage has never been included along with other passages https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Brooklyn_Museum_-_The_Bad_Rich_Man_in_Hell_(Le_mauvais_riche_dans_l%27Enfer)_-_James_Tissot_-_overall.jpgconcerning the Church-doctrine of Eternal Torment.

.

Why?

.

Does not this verse merit any value concerning the eternal destiny of Mankind?

.

Does it not add balance to a proper understanding of the nature of Hell?

.

You would think that those who are such ardent defenders of this old Church-doctrine called Eternal Torment, would want to consider this and other similar passages which present a vastly different understanding of what eternal judgment will be like for the multitudes of lost souls of Mankind!

.

“DON’T CONFUSE US WITH FACTS!”

.

But maybe that’s the problem. Maybe the reason why they don’t ever include such passages as this, is because it “muddies the waters”, so to speak concerning that much beloved old Church-doctrine!

.

In other words, the Church doesn’t want anything to get in the way of their Church-doctrines, that might call their validity into question.

.

And this above signature verse seems to do just that!

.

.

.

.

.

ETERNAL TORMENT BEAUTIFUL?

.

After all, if God has made everything beautiful in His time, then what can we say about Eternal Torment?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jan_van_Eyck_Diptych_Crucifixion_Right_Detail_1.jpg

.

There’s no way possible to make such a terrifying ordeal as Eternal Torment into something beautiful, now is there?

.

But God clearly says that, He hath made every thing beautiful in His time:”

.

And there’s no way that an eternal dungeon in which billions of lost souls will be intensely suffering and hopelessly screaming for mercy throughout the eternal ages could ever be considered beautiful!

.

.

“ALL” MEANS “ALL”

.

But notice that this verse does not say, “He hath made SOME things beautiful in His time”.

.

Nor does it say, “He hath made MOST things beautiful in His time”.

.

No, it says, “He hath made ALL things beautiful in His time”.

.

And so, if God hath made “ALL things beautiful in His time”, then that would mean ALL things, would it not?

.

And that would obviously include the eternal future of lost souls.

.

.

.

.

.

PROVERBIAL ‘HOUSE OF CARDS’

.

Well, this is merely one more verse which Eternal Torment advocates conveniently ignore.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:HouseOfCardsBridge.jpg

.

But there are many other verses which are likewise ignored, so that they may hang on to their church-doctrine which they call, “Eternal Torment”.

.

Because, if they did include this and other similar passages, then this whole ridiculous church-doctrine would totally collapse, being revealed as the proverbial “house of cards” that it truly is!

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!”

Revelation 18:4

.

And this is just one more reason that God considers the churches of today to be Babylon, “the City of Confusion”. Isaiah 24:10

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

Yes, the churches of today cling tenaciously to their traditional beliefs.

.

Nor are they willing to re-examine them.

.

And so, God has no choice but to call out and remove His faithful ones from all the confusion which is the current condition of today’s churches.

NO MORE SORROW, CRYING, OR PAIN!

.

No, the universe will rather be a place in which it is written…“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” Revelation 21:4, 5

.

Now this above passage reveals the kind of God that we can praise and love and adore for all time and eternity! A God who loves mercy!

.

“For His mercy endureth for ever!…For God is love!” 2nd Chronicles 5:13 & 1st John 4:8

ORION, THE GOOD SHEPHERD

.Orion the Good Shepherd (5th personality of Orion)

“The LORD is my shepherd;

.

I shall not want (lack).

.

He maketh me to lie

.

down in green pastures:

.

He leadeth me beside

.

the still waters…

.

I will fear no evil:

.

for Thou art with me;

.

Thy rod and thy staff

.

they comfort me….”

Psalm 23:1, 2, 4

ORION, THE GOOD SHEPHERD

01.17.20133

.

This star-chart from Wikipedia, has Orion sketched in by the editor of this website. With the addition of a single star, Theta Geminorum (the left hand of the Castor twin of Gemini), the sickle in Orion, the Reaper’s hand (sketch to left), now extends the blade, thus transforming that sickle into the hook of a shepherd’s rod and staff. And so now this little Gemini star becomes the tip of Orion’s Shepherd’s rod & staff. Thus with this additional star, Orion the Reaper Constellation now becomes the 5th personality of Orion: The Good Shepherd (sketch below right). Theta Geminorum is a class A3, 4th magnitude star, which means it is much fainter than either of the stars, Castor or Pollux. But faint as This little star may be, it nevertheless presents a giant concept, turning Orion’s sickle into a shepherd’s rod. And this is a very wonderful and beautiful Bible truth: namely, that Jesus is the Good Shepherd, as is written…

“As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out My sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.” Ezekiel 34:12 

.

And so God has placed this Starry Shepherd in the winter-night heavens to remind us of His great love for a planet which has wandered away: just like sheep that wandered to where the grass looked greener.
