EXPLAINING HUMAN SUFFERING IN THE USA

 

Thesis: The people of the USA are suffering the intense pressure of divine discipline from the justice of God for their negative volition expressed toward the plan of God for the human race, the nature of which plan, when implemented, resolves the prehistoric angelic conflict.

 

Redundancy: As you read through this document, you will encounter redundancy certain of phrases. This redundancy is intentional. Its purpose is to make thesis support as clear as possible so as to leave nothing in doubt.

 

Introductory Information

 

This document sets forth an explanation for the intense human suffering being experienced by the citizenry of the USA brought on by natural disasters such as hurricanes, mudslides, snow storms, tsunamis, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, droughts, torrential rains, and floods. Add to these our present economic crisis with attending high unemployment. Further, add the uncertainty within our nation’s medical system brought on by Obamacare. All of these and more play a significant part in the intense human suffering being experienced by the greater population in the USA.

 

Someone might ask if an explanation of human suffering in the USA could not be given in less than eleven pages and the answer is yes. However, a short answer would only generate a comment like, “Where in the world did you get that idea?” Anticipating that question, and others like it, this author has factored in several subtopics in support of his thesis. These subtopics should address some of the questions that might be asked regarding this author’s understanding of why there is such intense human suffering in the USA. Each subtopic below is in someway associated with his thesis. Anticipate a discussion of the following: the angelic conflict; more introductory information; the concepts of positive volition and negative volition in the Church Age; truth comes in three categories; the three categories of truth expanded; the purpose of the three categories of truth; human obligations toward the three categories of truth; the concepts of both unbeliever and believer reversionism; the concept of the integrity of God the Father; explaining blessing in the USA, today; explaining suffering in the USA, today; who suffers through cursing?; and the United States is not found in Bible prophecy.

 

The Angelic Conflict

 

If we are going to understand the contemporary human sufferings of Americans in the USA, we must understand the relationship between human suffering and the angelic conflict. The backdrop of human history from its beginning to its end is the angelic conflict, a conflict between the Creator God and the created, namely, Lucifer Son of the Morning, also known as Satan. The conflict began with the “5 I wills” of Satan (Isaiah 14:13-14). One-third of the angels followed after Satan. God the Father provided a means of reconciliation for these fallen angels (Hebrews 2:1-3), but they rejected it; therefore, the integrity of God the Father required condemnation of Satan and his followers (Matthew 25:41). Satan directed an appeal of his condemnation to the fairness of God the Father’s attribute of justice. To resolve this conflict, God the Father determined to create man lower than the angels (Hebrews 2:7), that is, without the same nature as angels. God’s reasoning was simple. If man, created lower than the angels, will be obedient to His guidelines for living during the Church Age, the implication is that the higher creature could also have been obedient, but wasn’t, and He will be justified in carrying out His sentence by permitting Satan and his followers to spend an eternal separation from Him in the lake of fire.

 

A crucial part of our understanding of human suffering is that man, created in the image and likeness of God, also chose a path of sin; but once again, God the Father offered man a plan of redemption so that man could continue to be a factor in the resolution of the angelic conflict. However, with the spiritual fall of man in the Garden of Eden also came human suffering. God did not create suffering. Suffering is the divinely decreed result of decisions that are freely made, but are in conflict with God the Father’s plan for the human race that resolves the angelic conflict. It is pure foolishness to blame God for man’s suffering when suffering is the known consequence for bad decisions, that is, decisions inconsistent with God’s plan for the human race in the resolution of the angelic conflict -- and guess what? As far as the human race is concerned, human suffering came into existence in the Garden of Eden with both Adam and Eve’s bad decisions. Blame them for human suffering; don’t blame God.

 

Now that we know how suffering entered the human race, can we explain contemporary suffering? The answer is, yes, but our explanation must continue to consider man’s decision making in view of the fact that he was created to resolve the angelic conflict. Every human being born into the human race is immediately drafted into the angelic conflict at the moment of physical birth – drafted, not enlisted. This means that by divine decree there is no choice in the matter. Every human being has been drafted into the conflict. Divinely decreed personal freedom, however, permits every draftee to be AOL (absent over leave) or AWOL (absent without leave) from the front lines of this spiritual battle. When the angelic conflict is properly understood, and man understands his part in the angelic conflict, then and only then do the human sufferings of life make any sense.

 

During the present dispensation of time known as the Church Age, EVERY human being on the planet is responsible to follow God the Father’s plan for the resolution of the angelic conflict, and this means every human being without regard to where on the planet a human being resides and without regard to the culture into which he is born. Skeptics often create a scenario wherein some human being is born in some remote part of the planet in some form of culture that is supposed to make man’s part in the angelic conflict appear like a man-made stupid rationale; however, God the Father has that covered. Romans 1:18ff declares that God the Father has a plan whereby man on any part of the planet, no matter how remote, can know of the existence of God, and if that individual or individuals want more information about that God, God the Father is responsible to do one of two things: 1) get that person to the Gospel or get the Gospel to that person. There has never been one person on any part of the planet in a portion of human history that has not had an opportunity to personally know God and His Son Jesus Christ. Case closed!

 

God the Father’s plan for every member of the human race involves ALL of the following, not part of, but all of the following:

 

  • spiritual salvation (Ephesians 2:8-10).
  •  being clean before the Lord through confession of post-salvation sins (1 John 1:9).
  • function in “Operation KRRY” which places the believer in the sphere of the Spirit (Romans 6:6, 11, 13).
  • applying pertinent truth to one’s circumstances of life from the source of one’s priesthood or ambassadorship (James 1:22; 1 Peter 2:5; 2 Corinthians 5:20).

 

A breakdown in any one of the previous four bulleted points in ANY human being’s life negates that individual’s part in resolving the angelic conflict and results in some form of divine discipline. In fact, that person or those persons play a significant part in the suffering of the rest of humanity. By way of application, this means that every human being participating in any form of religion outside of Judeo-Christianity, including atheists and agnostics, are serious contributors to the many forms of suffering throughout this present dispensational era of time. Now, if that seems to you as too narrow and arrogant, you’ll have an opportunity to tell that to Jesus either at the Great White Throne Judgment or the Bema Seat of Christ.

 

There are two and only two spheres from within which EVERY human being can function:

 

  • the sphere of the flesh
  • the sphere of the Spirit

 

By divine decree, both the unbeliever and carnal believer are able to function from within the sphere of the flesh. This type of function is tantamount to personal yieldedness to the body’s sinful nature, and nothing done in the sphere of the flesh resolves the angelic conflict which is completely contrary God the Father’s decreed purpose for every human being on planet earth. Whether a human being is an unbeliever or a believer, his moment-by-moment spiritual status is always under the immediate scrutiny of God the Father’s integrity (see on page 7 below), and man’s spiritual status generates either blessing or cursing from the attribute of divine justice.

 

Cursing takes many forms, but no matter what the form, it causes the pressure of human suffering to some degree in the life of the person operating in the sphere of the flesh. (Remember, the resolution of the angelic conflict is the backdrop of all human history, and every human being is a draftee for the purpose of resolving this conflict.) When properly understood, the people of the USA have been involved in a “five generation slide” away from the absolute truths of God’s Holy Word. The principle is simple. The longer the time period of the slide away from the absolute truths of God’s Holy Word, the greater the intensity of man’s suffering. Suffering should not be labeled punishment. Suffering is divine discipline divinely decreed as an attention-getter calling to the sufferer’s attention that something is wrong with your personal plan for your life. Your plan deviates from God the Father’s plan for your life. Since the number of persons in the USA whose personal plan deviates from God the Father’s plan has grown substantially over the past five generations, God the Father is knocking on the door of man’s heart, and He is knocking louder than ever. Ninety percent plus, meaning just a little less that ninety one percent, of all professing Christians in the USA are not even saved. Their method of salvation is works oriented which deviates from God the Father’s plan for salvation. Say “hello” to these contributors to human suffering in the USA. Of the nine percent plus, meaning just less than ten percent of those who understand that salvation is by grace through faith, that is, faith-alone in Christ-alone, separate from human works, less than one percent of this nine percent understand the mechanics of how to live their Christian lives in the sphere of the Spirit. Say “hello” to these contributors to human suffering in the USA. Now, if these comments seem to you as too narrow and arrogant, you too will have an opportunity to tell that to Jesus either at the Great White Throne Judgment or the Bema Seat of Christ.

 

While every human being is freely in control of his own volition, God the Father is in control of the circumstances of life, including control of nature, and that includes natural disasters. Please say “hello” to hurricanes, mudslides, snow storms, tsunamis, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, droughts, torrential rains, floods, and any other form of natural disaster. These are attention-getters and no human viewpoint rationale will explain away these truths. No, this does not make the God of Judeo-Christianity a mean and wicked God. He has been, is, and remains a loving God. However, the word “love” confuses many because of a false perception of the word “love.” God’s love is “respect for the freedom of members of the human race to use their personal volition to make decisions that are consistent or inconsistent with His plan for their lives, as long as their decisions do not violate another person’s freedom to pursue and achieve their own personal goals.” However, man’s decisions both positive and negative are not without consequence. The positive consequence is blessing associated with positive volition, and the negative consequence is personal suffering associated with negative volition. Why personal suffering? To capture the attention of the individual who is functioning on negative volition toward God the Father’s plan. Remember, you and every other member of the human race are here on this planet to resolve the angelic conflict, and only when a human being is functioning within the sphere of the Spirit is that individual doing his part in resolving the conflict and not contributing to more suffering for humanity. One of the widespread misconceptions is that humanitarianism, philanthropy, and altruism are in some way pleasing to the God of Judeo-Christianity. In fact, they are not. Such activity simply contributes to human suffering in a different way. The integrity of God the Father rejects these three forms of human good as tools for resolving the angelic conflict. While such activities may benefit the recipient, they are of no value to the initiator of the activity because they are activities carried out from the sphere of the flesh. Only when these activities are carried out from the sphere of the Spirit as led to do so by the Spirit are they spiritually beneficial to the initiator in the resolution of the angelic conflict.

 

Some More Introductory Information

 

 1.The concept of “client nation” is non-existent.

 

 2.Therefore, the USA is not a “client nation.”

 

 3.The “five cycles of discipline” are divinely designed for the nation of Israel alone.

 

 4.Therefore, since Israel and the USA are not synonymous, the USA is not subject to the “five cycles of discipline.

 

 5.How, then, can the human suffering being experience in the USA today be explained?

 

The Concepts of Positive Volition and Negative Volition in the Church Age

 

Positive volition is the term used to describe a positive mental attitude toward ALL three levels of positive volition:

 

  • a desire to know truth . . .
  • and a desire to understand truth . . .
  • and a desire to apply truth to every circumstance of life.

 

Negative volition is the term used to describe a negative mental attitude toward ANY of the following three levels of negative volition:

 

  • no interest in truth
  • or no desire for an understanding of truth
  • or no desire to apply truth.

 

Truth Comes in Three Categories

 

The three categories of truth:

 

 1.the laws of divine establishment and the four divine institutions:

 2.The Gospel

 3.The Royal Family Honor Code

 

The Three Categories of Truth Expanded

 

 1.The laws of divine establishment and the four divine institutions:

 

  • freedom: divine permission to use both positive and negative volition
  • marriage: between one man and one woman
  • family: the children produced in marriage
  • patriotism/nationalism
  • capitalism
  • free-market economy

 

 2.The Gospel (good news) includes ALL of the following (no more and no less):

  • the death of Christ on the cross
  • the burial of Christ
  • the resurrection of Christ

 

 3.The Royal Family Honor Code (includes all of the following):

 

  • divine principles by which to live
  • divine promises by which to live
  • divine doctrines by which to live
  • divine techniques by which to live
  • divine rules by which to live
  • divine operational procedures by which to live

 

The Purpose of the Three Categories of Truth|

 

 1.  The laws of divine establishment and the four divine institutions are divinely designed to perpetuate human history for the purpose of permitting the successful resolution of the angelic conflict.

 

 2.  The Gospel grants eternal salvation to any and all who will believe, trust, or accept it.

 

 3.  The Royal Family Honor Code provides the code of honor by which every born-again Christian is to function as a Royal Priest and Royal Ambassador.

 

  • from his Royal Priesthood the born-again Christian represents himself before God by producing the likeness of the character of the humanity of Jesus Christ.
  • from his Royal Ambassadorship the born-again Christian represents God the Father before his fellow-man in two ways:
    • the function of his spiritual gift
    • his function in his “ministry of reconciliation” (the presentation of the Gospel to individuals in the lost community)

 

Human Obligations Toward the Three Categories of Truth

 

 1.The human race can be divided into two categories:

 

  • unbeliever
  • believer

 

 2.  By divine design, both the unbeliever and the believer are obligated to manifest positive volition toward Category 1 truth: the laws of divine establishment and the four divine institutions.

 

 3.  By divine design, the unbeliever is obligated to manifest positive volition toward the Gospel to receive eternal salvation that when received resolves a portion of the angelic conflict in the Church Age.

 

 4.  By divine design, the born-again Christian is obligated to apply the Royal Family Honor Code to his life because this application produces the character of the humanity of Christ from his Royal Priesthood that in turn puts a cutting edge on (makes believable) the Gospel when presented to the unbeliever from the source of the believer’s Royal Ambassadorship. (The unbelieving world is sick-and-tired of hearing from a Royal Ambassador about a Jesus who has made no difference in the life of the Christian’s Royal Priesthood who is presenting the Gospel to the unbeliever.)

 

The Concepts of Both Unbeliever and Believer Reversionism

 

Reversionism is the term used to indicate negative volition toward the divinely designed plan for both unbeliever and believer. For example:

 

  • both an unbeliever and a believer can manifest negative volition toward any one of or all of the four divine institutions.
  • freedom: the permission of both positive and negative volition
  • marriage: between one man and one woman
  • family: the children produced in marriage
  • patriotism/nationalism
  • capitalism
  • free-market economy
    • an unbeliever can manifest negative volition toward the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    • a believer can manifest negative volition toward any one of or all of the following:
  • divine principles by which to live
  • divine promises by which to live
  • divine doctrines by which to live
  • divine techniques by which to live
  • divine rules by which to live
  • divine operational procedures by which to live

 

The Concept of the Integrity of God the Father

 

 1.The integrity of God the Father is comprised of three of His attributes:

  • absolute righteousness
  • justice
  • agape love

 

 2.The functions of the integrity of God the Father:

 

A.  The absolute righteousness of God the Father demands experiential righteousness from every born-again Christian. Experiential righteousness is obedience to God the Father’s plan executed from the sphere of the Spirit.

 

B.  The justice of God (fairness) demands justice from God toward every human being.

 

C.  What the absolute righteousness of God the Father demands from every human being, the justice of God the Father executes.

 

  • Justice executes blessing toward experiential righteousness.
  • Justice executes cursing toward personal sin.

 

Explaining Blessing in the USA, Today

 

 1.  The citizenry of the USA is divided into two categories:

 

  • unbeliever
  • believer

 

 2.  The integrity of God is at work toward both unbeliever and believer.

 

 3.  The integrity of God the Father toward the unbeliever’s mental attitude toward the three categories of truth:

 

A.  The absolute righteousness of God the Father is constantly evaluating the free-will choices of every unbeliever on planet earth toward the two categories of truth for which the unbeliever is responsible:

 

  • the laws of divine establishment and the four divine institutions.
  • the Gospel.

 

B.  The justice of God the Father awaits His absolutely righteous evaluation of the free-will choices of the unbeliever toward the preceding two categories of truth.

 

1)If the absolute righteousness of God the Father views the unbeliever as positive toward any of the four divine institutions, the justice God blesses the unbeliever with the decreed blessing appropriate to positive volition toward the respective divine institution.

 

  • positive toward freedom: decreed blessing provided
  • positive toward marriage: decreed blessing provided
  • positive toward family: decreed blessing provided
  • positive toward patriotism/nationalism: decreed blessing provided
  • positive toward capitalism: decreed blessing provided
  • positive toward free-market economy: decreed blessing provided

 

2)If the absolute righteousness of God the Father views the unbeliever as positive at the moment of God-consciousness, the justice of God the Father provides either of the appropriate responses:

 

  • get the unbeliever to the Gospel.
  • get the Gospel to the unbeliever.

 

3)If the absolute righteousness of God the Father views the unbeliever as positive at the moment of Gospel hearing, the justice of God the Father blesses with eternal salvation and the 51 things that happen to every new believer at the moment of salvation.

 

 4.  The integrity of God the Father regarding the believer’s mental attitude toward the Royal Family Honor Code:

 

A.  The absolute righteousness of God the Father is constantly evaluating the free-will choices of every believer on planet earth toward the following:

 

1)Is the believer clean before the Lord through confession of post-salvation sin?

 

2)Is the believer functioning in “Operation KR1R2Y” and doing the truth?

 

  • K: Does the believer know, understand, and believe that his old-man was crucified with Christ? (Romans 6:6)
  • R1: Is the believer reckoning his old-man dead to his sinful nature? (Romans 6:11)
  • R2: Is the believer reckoning his new-man alive unto Christ? (Romans 6:11)
  • Y: Is the believer yielded to God the Holy Spirit? (Romans 6:13)
  • Is the believer applying pertinent truth to his life situation? (James 1:22)

 

B.  If the absolute righteousness of God the Father views the believer as positive toward rebound and he is confessing post-salvation sin, the justice of God the Father immediately blesses the believer by cleansing him and forgiving him of the sin he confessed.

 

C.  If the absolute righteousness of God the Father views the believer as positive toward “Operation KRRY,” the justice of God blesses the believer with entrance into the sphere of the Spirit from which sphere the believer functions in spirituality.

 

D.  If the absolute righteousness of God the Father views the believer as applying pertinent truth to his life situation from the source of his priesthood, the justice of God blesses the believer with the production of the character of the humanity of Christ.

 

E.If the absolute righteousness of God the Father views the believer as applying pertinent truth to his life situation from the source of his ambassadorship, the justice of God blesses the believer with the production of the divine good, blessable-in-time and rewardable-in-eternity.

 

Explaining Suffering in the USA, Today

 

Let’s consider three categories of suffering: 1) suffering for blessing; 2) suffering by association; 3) suffering through cursing.

 

Suffering for blessing: Suffering for blessing is that form of human suffering that comes from circumstances of life not necessarily caused by your own decisions. The purpose in suffering for blessing is your own spiritual growth. This type of suffering when encountered is divinely designed for you to utilize the appropriate grace provision the application of which results in increased spiritual strength and spiritual growth. The nature of the circumstance is not the issue. The issue is whether or not you will use the appropriate specific grace provision necessary to stabilize your spiritual life at the time the circumstance is encountered.

 

Suffering by association:  Suffering by association is that form of human suffering that comes from the circumstance of being associated with someone or a group that is suffering through cursing because of their negative volition toward any one of or all three of the categories of truth. Suffering by association is totally unrelated to whether you personally are functioning in the sphere of the flesh or sphere of the Spirit. All you have to do is be associated with someone or a group who is suffering through cursing and you will suffer by association.

 

Suffering through cursing: Suffering through cursing is that form of human suffering that comes from making free-will decisions that are contrary to God’s will for your life. When a human being violates God’s will for his life, the integrity of God measures out the appropriate intensity level of divine discipline experienced as human suffering through cursing for the purpose of getting the attention of the person manifesting negative volition. This type of suffering is never good in itself, but it is for the good of the one suffering. It is good in the sense that it is saying, “There’s something wrong with your plan.” If and when the sufferer becomes sick-and-tired of being sick-and-tired of suffering through cursing, this individual may just stop long enough to consider God the Father’s plan for his life. If not, guess what? The disciplinary measure from the integrity of God will simply intensify. Why? Because God loves you. You are a member of the human race, and He loves the human race so much that He gave His uniquely born Son to die on the cross for the personal sins of every member of the human race (John 3:16).

 

Who Suffers for Cursing?

 

Both the unbeliever and the carnal believer suffer for cursing. Why? Because both are operating from the sphere of the flesh, meaning that they are yielded to the body’s sinful nature. Any and all function from the sphere of the flesh is contrary to God the Father’s plan for the resolution of the angelic conflict in the Church Age and requires divinely decreed pressure as an attention-getter.

 

Let’s be clear. The angelic conflict is the issue. During the Church Age, its resolution comes about only as human beings meet the criteria for its resolution. Today, there are so few in the United States who truly understand this; therefore, God the Father is knocking hard at the hearts door of both the unregenerate and carnal believer, and in the meanwhile, those believers who do understand and are functioning in the sphere of the Spirit are suffering by reason of association with the unbelieving world and world of carnal Christians.

 

I estimate that less than ten persons per every 10,000 in the USA truly understand the issue of the angelic conflict and how it is to be resolved, and while the masses may mean well, meaning well does not resolve the angelic conflict because it does not follow God the Father’s prescribed plan. God the Father who controls the circumstances of life is knocking on the door of man’s heart by way of hurricanes, mudslides, snow storms, tsunamis, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, floods, any other form of natural disaster, economic distress, physical distress -- and perhaps you could add to the list other things that bring human suffering into one’s life.

 

The United States Is Not Found in Bible Prophecy

 

The citizens of the United States are under intense pressure causing unbelievable human suffering. Because of the five generation slide away from the absolute truths of God’s Holy Word, the greatest portion of the intense suffering in the United States is caused by negative volition toward the plan of God that resolves the angelic conflict. At one time the strongest nation in the world both militarily and economically, the question arises regarding how and why the United States moves from its past position of strength to being unworthy of mention in Bible prophecy. The answer is clear. The divine justice of God is bringing our nation low due to the mass of negative volition toward His plan for resolving the angelic conflict. No, you say. Again, tell that to Jesus at the Great White Throne Judgment or the Bema Seat, whichever is appropriate for you if you reject His plan for your life.

 

Thesis restated: The people of the USA are suffering intense pressure as a direct result of divine discipline from the justice of God for their negative volition expressed toward the plan of God for the human race the nature of which plan when implemented resolves the prehistoric angelic conflict.
