"There Is No Hell!"
The Jesus MeetUp There is NO Hell! Week #41
What a relief to find out that all we have been taught about eternal damnation is WRONG!
Let’s start by looking at this statement:
“The Greeks believed that weak men must have weak souls; so they invented Hades(=Hell) as a fit place for the reception of such anemic souls; these unrobust specimens were also supposed to have shorter shadows.” (86:4.8)
anemic – Synonyms: colorless, sickly, tired-looking, washed out, drained, ghostly, deathly; lacking life energy
robust – sturdy in construction, long-lasting, durable, resilient, able to withstand or overcome adverse conditions
...so, UNrobust means the complete opposite of these words.
What do you think about these statements regarding the various inventions of hell?
These above concepts of Hell continued on in religious lore and teaching until this very day! Even that those who do not believe in God will endure an eternity of suffering, when many of the children nowadays, in the West particularly, are being raised by agnostic parents! But fear not, because just as universe mercy is exhaustive it allows for the mitigation of circumstances where each individual, who has not had fair opportunities in this life to choose to know the Father and to do his Will, will be fairly adjudged and given every occasion to be presented with this choice.
mitigation - the action of reducing the severity, seriousness, or painfulness of something, soothing, softening, relieving
Now, let’s look at other quotes from the Revelators which should give us heart as we, mostly unwittingly, continue to make the mistakes we humans make due to the imperfect nature of our status here as mortal creatures of our world.
“The greatest punishment (in reality an inevitable consequence) for wrongdoing and deliberate rebellion against the government of God is loss of existence as an individual subject of that government. The final result of wholehearted sin is annihilation.” (2:3.2)
inevitable – certain/sure to happen, unavoidable, expected
annihilation – complete destruction or obliteration, elimination
This should leave no doubt in the reader’s mind that the universe has determined a just and fair way to deal with the rebellious individual who persistently and at every opportunity refuses to love and serve our Father in his glorious plan for us all.
There are consequences (results) for everything we do, they may be good results or not, depending on how we have participated in our thoughts, words and deeds. They are, as we mentioned, inescapable. Therefore, must we be as vigilant as we can (being on alert, on guard, keeping careful watch) for those moments in time where we see if these aspects of us are in accordance with the Father’s will.
Think about this: What possible good outcome can be derived from condemning a person to an existence of suffering, in a universe coordinated, administered by DIVINE LOVE and MERCY...where would it end? Will it be that at some point, an individual would be given another chance? If so, then why not make that offer in the first place?! If there is no possible good outcome, then lack of existing(putting that individual out of misery) makes sense, right? “No affectionate father is ever precipitate in visiting punishment upon an erring member of his family.” (54:5.4)
precipitate - the fact or quality of acting suddenly and rashly
It will be forever true: we reap what we sow!
“When Melchizedek appeared in the flesh, the Egyptians had a religion far above that of the surrounding peoples. They believed that a disembodied soul, if properly armed with magic formulas, could evade the intervening evil spirits and make its way to the judgment hall of Osiris, where, if innocent of “murder, robbery, falsehood, adultery, theft, and selfishness,” it would be admitted to the realms of bliss.(Heaven?) If this soul were weighed in the balances and found wanting, it would be consigned to hell, to the Devouress…"
“The concept of judgment in the hereafter for the sins of one’s life in the flesh on earth was carried over into Hebrew theology from Egypt. The word judgment appears only once in the entire Book of Hebrew Psalms, and that particular psalm was written by an Egyptian.” (95:2.9-10)
Remember that Melchizedek arrived here on earth (BC1973 BCE) to prepare the way for Michael’s last bestowal as Jesus in the flesh, and needed to rekindle the flame and light of Truth on this world and in the general area of Michael’s future appearance. He was the teacher of Abraham in Salem (now Jerusalem) and many of his teachings were still alive and spread far and wide by the time of Jesus, and this is what was believed about the “hereafter” during those times by the Egyptians. In Egyptian mythology, Isis, the wife and sister of Osiris, was a mother goddess, and the belief was that she helped the deceased in the underworld....hence, the female Devouress.
Re-enter the Jewish traditions and Hebrew scriptures...
“The Jewish traditions of heaven and hell and the doctrine of devils as recorded the Hebrew scriptures, while founded on the lingering traditions of Lucifer and Caligastia, were principally derived from the Zoroastrians during the times when the Jews were under the political and cultural dominance of the Persians.” (95:6.6)
Remember >>> These former rebellious leaders:
Lucifer = now imprisoned former System Sovereign; Caligastia = deposed Planetary Prince of our world
[Satan is also a separate entity who joined the Lucifer rebellion and is also now imprisoned, if not annihilated.]
Then we had Zoroastrians: followers of Zoroaster who taught only the One God, who was the “truth of the Lord of light.”
So, here’s my question to you:
Given the above statements related to the long-lasting nature and derivation of the “hell” concept:
Should you be Jewish to believe in the Hebrew teaching of the doctrine of hell, as Jesus never taught this offensive belief of his loving Heavenly Father? If the answer is YES, and you are NOT Jewish, why would you accept and believe such a falsehood?...or accept THEIR doctrine of the bloody sacrifice, which is definitely a cultural theology?
Makes a person stop and think, doesn’t it?
Jesus taught: “Man is indeed subject to evil, but he is in no sense the child of the evil one unless he has knowingly and deliberately chosen the paths of sin and the life of iniquity. Evil is inherent in the natural order of this world, but sin is an attitude of conscious rebellion which was brought to this world by those who fell from spiritual light into gross darkness.” (148:4.6)
It is difficult to find statements by our Beloved Jesus on hell as he only proclaimed what IS, as opposed to what is NOT – why spend needless time of his hearers/us on explaining what does not exist? Therefore, does he teach about the effects of our actions, as in the above sentence. Look at this last part.
Make not the mistakes of Lucifer!
“There must have been a pride of self that nourished itself to the point of self-deception, so that Lucifer for a time really persuaded himself that his contemplation of rebellion was actually for the good of the system, if not of the universe. By the time his plans had developed to the point of disillusionment, no doubt he had gone too far for his original and mischief-making pride to permit him to stop. At some point in this experience he became insincere, and evil evolved into deliberate and willful sin.” (53:2.5)
What happened with Lucifer constituted cosmic insanity of elevating himself to the point of claiming to be above our Creator, even to denying the existence of the Universal Father! THAT’S what caused him to finally end up in the universe prison world, after deceiving so many beings, even greater than we are (!), into following him into self-destruction, and even refusing the offers of mercy extended to him.
What on earth could you possibly do, or have done, which would compare to the iniquity of Lucifer,
who is awaiting annihilation?
May you rest assured of your eternal future, holding fast with Jesus, as you progress with
