The False Teaching
Catholic Catechism 1042 At the end of time,
the Kingdom of God will come in its fullness. . . . The
universe itself will be renewed: . . .At that
time, together with the human race, the universe itself, . . . will be perfectly
re-established in Christ.1043 Sacred Scripture calls
this mysterious renewal, which will transform humanity and the world, "new
heavens and a new earth."
From Billy Graham: Q: Do you think the world will
ever be perfect? If God created it, then surely He meant for it to be perfect,
Yes, God did intend for the world to be a perfect place —and in fact that is the
way He originally created it. The Bible says that "God saw all that he had made,
and it was very good" (Genesis 1:31).
What went wrong? The Bible puts it
in one word: sin. When God created the first man and woman, they had unbroken
fellowship with Him, and everything they did was good and right. But one day
Satan tempted them by saying they could become like God if they would only
follow him—and they rebelled against God their Creator. When they did, sin and
death—like a deadly cancer—entered the human race, and our world was no longer
perfect. Yes, God wants us to fight sin and work for a better world—but
this world will never become perfect until sin and death and Satan are removed
from it. And that will never happen until Christ comes again to rule in glory.
|Exposing the Error
This doctrine is ubiquitous throughout Christendom. It is due the love of
life in the world, and therefore for the world itself, that they
insist on the perfection of the world. This is their
condemnation, according to the Great Principle
of our Lord. This is the root, the driving force of their error
that renders them deaf to the Truth. The Catholic Catechism
#1042, beginning with the phrase, "At the end of time" contains the
ultimate contradiction that renders it void and senseless. To
what end, then, is the perfection of the world "at that time" when time is no more? And to what end, then, is the coming
of Christ again to "rule in glory" when there is no time during which
to rule? You have a brain. Use it!
This false doctrine is tied to the belief that the kingdom of God as
promised by Jesus is yet to come on earth. If they would only
listen to him, they would soon learn that this event is long past, and the will of the Father
is being done on the earth as it is in heaven. They cannot accept
this, even from the Lord, because this is not in accord with their will. Their will is dictated by the love of life in the world, which condemns them.
They misunderstand certain utterances of the Lord and force them to
comply with other texts from the New Testament Epistles and
Revelations. These sources, like modern Christians, are bound by
the love of life also. Flee them and hear Jesus, then you will
have the Truth! Hear him: Jn.8:31 So Jesus was saying to the Jews
having believed in him: If you abide in my word, ... you will know the truth. . ..
|Declaring the Truth
Mk.13:24 But in those days after that tribulation the sun
will be darkened, and the moon will not give its radiance, 25 And the stars will be falling out of heaven and the powers in the
heavens will be shaken. 26 And they will see the son
of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then he will send the angels and they will gather his chosen out
of the four winds from the edge of [the] earth to the edge of heaven.
Mt.13:30 Allow them to grow together until the harvest, and
in the time of the harvest
I will say to the harvesters: Gather first the tares and bind them into bundles
in order to burn them, but the wheat gather into my storehouse.
Jn.14:2 In my father's house[hold] are many dwelling-places. If [it were] not [so], I would have told you,
3 because I go to prepare [a] place for you. And if I
go and prepare [a] place for you, again do I come and will take you to myself,
in order that where I am you may be also.
Mt.24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will
not pass away.
No new heavens and no new earth - and no world. Just a place in the Father's house . . . or the fire.
Mt.24:11 And many false prophets will rise and will deceive
