Excellent thread and post.
You ask the right questions and in the proper manner for a response.
Your life (soul = body; spirit = mind) is created at the moment of your physical conception in your mother's womb according to scripture.
God alone has eternally existed, no other being has or will fill this role in existance.
Jesus Christ also was created at His conception, He did not eternally exist as His father does.
When you die, your body returns to the Earth (ashes to ashes) and your mind (with no life in it, no conciousness of itself) is set aside by God and
preserved for a future time. Even Jesus Christ had to die (no life in Him) for a 72 hour period of time (Sunset ending Passover on Wednesday - Sunset
ending the Sabbath on Saturday). His spirit did not ascend up to Heaven until after being dead for 3 days and 3 nights. Then God gave His spirit
eternal life as a reward for living a physical life without sin.
Mankind has a different path then the son of man did to achieve salvation (become part of Elohim). We live a physical life full of sin, we cannot
receive eternal life until we have been transformed by the renewing of our minds from carnal to spiritual (selfish to selfless). This tranformation
takes a lifetime of work, trial, testing; molding and fashioning our way of thinking into the spiritual image of God (Elohim).
In this present age, about to end; it is not the purpose for mankind to acheive salvation as a whole, only 144,000 individual minds called out of this
present age to become part of the Kingdom of God on Earth at the return of Jesus Christ have entered into judgement in this age, and have had their
way of thinking changed over their entire lives into thinking in unity and oneness with the mind of God.
For the vast majority of mankind they are to live this first life in this present age in the manner they determine for themselves to be "right".
Then they die their first death.
Then after the 1000 year reign of the Kingdom of God on Earth, all mankind that has ever lived and died, except those already in Elohim; i.e. 144,001;
or those called into God's church who turned against the work of Jesus Christ bringing them to repentance thus becoming anti-christ, will be
resurrected to a second physical life.
God, who has preserved your mind (spirit) since the moment of your physical first death (whether now or 300 years ago, or in ancient Egypt) will place
your mind (spirit) in a new physical body, if you died of old age, your new body will be young and healthy, if you died as a child, you are given the
body of a child to continue your developement. During this age (Great White Thrown Judgement) mankind will learn God's ways, all truth will be
revealed and the greatest lesson possible will be learned by all mankind collectively.
"My way, lived in my first life is wrong and leads to pain and suffering and death; God's way, lived in my second life is right and leads to peace,
prosparity and eternal life".
The same mind (spirit) in you will experience and learn first hand the blessings of obeying God's laws (seen in the perfect world experienced in your
second physical life) and the curses of disobeying them (seen in the horrors of the world you live in today). In this way only can God, though
personal experience inside each mind he created to become part of Elohim over time, bring all mankind to willing choose to always follow His eternal
laws of peace, balance, life and love. Only then can selfish physical mannkind be qualified to have all things placed under their control, mankind in
their present state would destroy all life if given God's power without God's perfect plan for the salvation of all mankind.
- No life eternally exists except God the father, creator of all things.
- In God's plan for the salvation of all mankind, most were determined to live 2 physical lives, one of their own free choosing (my way, this age) and
one of God's choosing (Great White Thrown Judgment, after the 1000 year reign).
- Both lives and the lessons learned throughout the process will collectively bring all mankind to "know" why God's laws are blessings and willing
choose to obey them forever, thus allowing us to become eternal beings at one with the Elohim of God. As children and heirs with Christ to all
things, God is reproducing Himself in mankind.
