For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; who will have all men to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 1 Timothy 2:3-6

LUKE 17:20-21
For the kingdom cometh not with observation, for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
1 CORINTHIANS 6:19 Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost ?
COLOSSIAN 1:27 Christ formed in you, the hope of glory.

In the first chapter of Genesis, God communes with the Divine Mother,
Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.....

In the first chapter of John, it says that in the beginning was the Word, which was with God and was God. The same took upon itself flesh and dwelt among us.

God, without beginning of days nor end of life, created unto themselves a temple of flesh in the beginning, before the Adam creation and before the garden planted eastward in Eden, which was adulterated and lost through transgression and subsequent generations in transgressions multiplied.
In time, as was Promised, (to the woman and her seed) God again visited to raise up their divinity (the Word) in flesh from the chosen lineage to which the promise was given.

"The Order of Melchizedek made the Light teachable." Mary Purnell.
Religious institutions of man, initially based upon the record of extra-ordinary experience, served as directives to an understanding of God, and the plan of creation in which mankind was to be raised with knowledge, for which the transgression(s) in Eden was allowed.
The Word (seed of God) dwelt in flesh before ( Genesis 1:26; 2:1 & 4) the Eden creation, and which seed of divinity so planted, was carried down to re establish divinity in flesh as the singular authority of its wisdom.
The Word in flesh, in the personality of Jesus, was to bring to light the immortality that was the life also of the Eden plantation.
The paper trail of the Word:
The Old Testament fathers, prophets and heroes were the carriers of the seed of promise. They were the family chosen to experience the extra-ordinary, that we now call the scriptures (histories) that illuminate the hand of God within and throughout His creation.
The coming of Messiah: Jesus Christ, is the promise fulfilled: once again the Word made flesh, that is immortal. Made after the power of an endless life, Hebrews7:16.
Mortal man and woman bring forth of their own kind, mortal births subject to sin and death. God and the chosen, Virgin Mary (lineage of David), brought forth a Son of God, Made after the power of an endless life.

This Word made flesh, after the divine image of the Father and Mother is the substance of all the prophetic scriptures and for which all scriptures were written and held as sacredly divine; teaching the promised restoration of the Word in flesh to recreate the Eden condition in the flesh, upon this earth.

As the blue-print of God's wisdom yielded ten commandments.
These ten principles are in substance the Divine origin of the soul.
Mankind is made of three component parts: Spirit, Soul and Body.
There is the Spirit of God and there is an individual spirit that defines each individual being.
Your spirit has origin and therefore destination, which is on purpose.
Your spirit is taken from that which has no beginning of days nor end of life.
Your spirit cannot die, has a purpose for being and is an individually defined property.
Before there was terrestrial/earth, there was heaven. Before there was a body there was spirit.
We know nothing of this origin while dressed in the garment of mortal flesh with a resident soul that sleeps, unaware of itself and in captivity to the illusory and corruptible persuasions of the flesh, directed by thoughts and desires of a carnal mind; a nature to which it was born into. 1 John 3:12; Matthew 13:25:25-30; 37-41.

In the Wisdom (Will) of God, our Spirit and Soul were created to be integral parts in our journey from origin (spiritual/heaven/divine nature) to the destination of: The Word made flesh, as in Eden. In which journey we are all ordained to come to the revelation of our origin in the divine through the travail and mold of the earth. We find the illumination of truth, the substance and practice of ten principles that awaken the soul, bringing a self-judgment and realization that desires only the plan of divinity to be fulfilled in us as to being our daily habit of life. That each vessel filled to its brim of understanding in its divine and eternal purpose.
That all knees may bow and all tongues confess. That all be saved and come to the knowledge of truth. "That as great as God's majesty is, so also is His mercy."

The Revelation given to John is not a communication that can be understood by the slumbering soul in the captivity and sleep of the fallen Adam.
It is a Revelation to be comprehended by and through the Spirit of Truth, such as anointed and encompassed John, in order for him to write.
It is a text written for the end time and sealed from all men until "the mystery of God should be finished" under the voice of the seventh angel messenger. Under that voice would be the time of the interpretation: that which explains the Revelation and is the substance of what John heard and was about to write, but was commanded not to write.
It was the final directly inspired communication to be received by one of the twelve disciples, for which he, John, did tarry (outlived all the other disciples) until HE came, as was their faithful expectation. The Revelation is the diamond of all scriptures, at the last of the volume.....that would be, when unsealed, the first and foremost to unseal the secrets of the Genesis. To remove the darkness (our ignorance) upon the face of the deep that was before God said, Let there be light.
The carnal mind of error and unknowing is at enmity to the spiritual mind of life and peace.
The world from Adam are born into ignorance and seemingly learn from one another.

The Book/record of the heavens was sealed with Seven seals.
Only ONE prevailed with God to loose the seals and open the Word of God: The Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Messiah, the High Priest of Heaven and earth, Jesus Christ; after the Order of Melchizedek.
To his beloved disciple, He gave the Revelation.
And, at the end time, the finishing of the mystery of God by the same power and authority anointing the Seventh Angel Messenger of God.

The War in Heaven, briefed in Revelation 12, rightly understood, is the spiritual origins of that which we find in Genesis. A Garden of Eden, a Tree of Life, a creation after the image of God in flesh (male and female), another creation called Adam of dust and formed alone and a third kind of creation whose purpose is, through envy, to contend, transform and to make possible the deceiving of the whole world: the descendants and generations from Adam. For that which was deceived in heaven was cast to earth.
At the end of time, times and half a time, appointed for the host of those spirits ( one-third that stood with Lucifer) to be born into the fallen nature inherited from Adam, again comes the war in heaven in the restoration of Eden to the earth. For the powers that corrupted Eden will revisit to violently oppose its restoration; which restoration is by the "Law of the Spirit of Life" Romans 8:1 &2.

The divine wisdom and purpose of God is the plan.
There is a fore ordination and pre-destination designed from before the foundation of the world.
The design was the blue-print for the physical creation of this world.
"Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven."
Upon which pre determination is the promise given unto those in spirit that stood with Michael, that would take bodies at the latter day to be the instruments in God's plan to bring in the former glory of Eden to the earth for 1000 years; the Sabbath of Rest from the powers of evil.

The Love of God encompasses all: the sins of the world are not imputed to them because of the Atonement.
2 Corinthians 5:18-21.
There is a blueprint called the will of God, it has its effects upon all aspects of the creation, so designed for the purpose to restore, not only Eden to the earth for 1000 years, but to reconcile all mankind that have been ordained within the plan of this purpose.

The Eden story and its resulting transgressions that finally destroyed the paradisical condition on earth was an intentional part of the plan as it was an integral part of giving all the knowledge and experience of sin, fundamental to being raised up at the last day. The Promise was to those that overcome and endure to the end.

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was so placed within Eden on purpose.

There could not be a resurrection without there first being a death.
Eyes cannot be opened with a revelation unless they are first made (born) blind.
Reconciliation is not possible without there first being a transgression and knowledge of sin.
Faith is only possible in the apparent absence of God.
Yet "by faith were the worlds made"; into which we are born, without the understanding thereof.

Seeing the effect without knowing its cause is a mystery. Darkness conceals.
Seeing the effect as being equal to its cause is a revelation. Light reveals.

You cannot have a revelation unless you first have a mystery.

To understand the foreordained purpose and ultimate good that was used in the creation of evil, is the necessary key of knowledge, yielding a life that commands, not obeys the carnal nature.

Love is integral in the Wisdom of God that ordained the differing orders of creation, as pre-figured by the sun, moon and stars, being equally necessary to the purpose assigned to each. Each are necessary parts of the whole purpose in God. In Christ shall ALL be made alive, but every man in his own order.1 Corinthians 15: 22-23.
There is a salvation for all, and a special salvation for believers: 1 Timothy 4:10

Under the voice of the seventh angel messenger, at this latter-day, is the unsealing of the Revelation given to John. Finishing the mystery of God as declared to his servants, the prophets. The revealing of mysteries, sealed from the world: even the Spirit of Truth, will once again bring on the great opposition and War in Heaven.
2 Timothy chapter 3

The following excerpts, taken from the 4 books of The Seven Baskets of Fragments, listed below show deeper levels of both understanding and prophecy concerning the several important understandings of the faith of the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ, "who will have all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth." In Abraham: I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give thy seed all these countries; AND IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED. Genesis 26:4

These "fragments" are not given in any order of theme but as they appear in these recordings dated from June,1906 through April,1909; inner court meetings delivered by the seventh messenger, Mary and Benjamin Purnell.

The third overturn will take place in Israel before it strikes the world.

All the evil that has ever been done for 6000 years will be revealed in the resurrection.

How can you master the man of sin within yourself if you cannot see him ?

Why don't we stamp them out from amongst us that do evil ? Why did not Jesus cast out Judas ?
Sometimes they are suffered to stay to try others. Why not kick them out ? Not the law in this work; let them work their own destruction, for they cannot take out any who are Israel.

Parable of the talents: Each given according to his ability.
                                    Each given equally, but in proportion.

It is a simple thing to starve the evil to death by crucifixion.

Those in the open valley (Ezekiel) had ears to hear Son of man prophecy and feet to stand upon (understanding).

God wants your whole heart-and your whole heart for the kingdom is counted as perfection.

After Jesus was anointed of the Holy Ghost at Jordan, he was led by the spirit into the wilderness, being forty days tempted of the devil.
There was a long preparation (18 years), "learning obedience by the things he suffered" that brought him to Jordan. Then a trial of 40 days to the natural necessities and the most subtle and cunning transformations of the truth: the evil one quoting the very scriptures concerning him. Then, upon his victory, his ministry began.
One of the three trials of record was "the devil, taking him up into a high mountain, and shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power I will give unto thee, and the glory of them: for this is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will, I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine."

It is important to note that the devil acknowledged that all the kingdoms of the world, all of its glory and all this power was delivered unto him. The devil cannot create anything, and what is created he can only transform through envy towards the anointed of God.

"Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering...Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so; thou wast upon the holy mountain of God" Ezekiel 28.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning ! how art thou cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations. Isaiah 14:4-17.
Consider the trial of Job, chapter 2, wherein God refers satan to Job, and gives satan permission for to try Job to the uttermost: "Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life." Job, in his wisdom responds with, What ? Shall we receive good at the hand of the Lord, and shall we not receive evil ? In concurrence: John 10: 27-29.

God allowed the serpent in the garden to beguile the woman and ensnare Adam, by subtle transformation of the commandment of God. As it is written, "God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam" and so it follows that all the kingdoms of the fallen Adam, their glory and power was delivered to the devil by the providence of God. The trial of Jesus was to prove he understood the transformed, illusory kingdoms were appointed to Lucifer. For in Jesus he met more than his match in one not having been born into the carnal nature through the act of transgression. Jesus understood for what purpose Lucifer was called into being and saw the glories of his kingdoms for what they were.
Jesus suffered many things to learn obedience (Hebrews 5:6-9), which was necessary to reach Jordan. His trials with the brightly anointed and most subtle beast of the field, was finished in victory; upon which foundation was the beginnings of his ministry. The necessity of the trials was paramount to becoming the perfect savior, who then would reply with authority: it is written (upon the tables of the heart), Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shalt thou serve. And finally, the devil having served his time of appointment, is bound 1000 years to deceive the nations no more. Rev.20. This is the Sabbath, Millennial reign of Christ on earth; Eden restored. Upon the sounding of the Seventh Angel; there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever.

And again, I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 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.....
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
For blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
