God's Mercy and His Adjustments for man.
God’s Wishes for man to acknowledge and believe Him and walk with Him as His children created in HIS IMAGE has never changed, this is the EVERLASTING GOSPEL.
This study will prove to you that God changed His mind about man several times. God actually adjusted TO man’s free will and man’s failed choices.
FRIENDS:  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
God’s Love and Mercy described:
Psalms100:  Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. BIBLE REFERENCE AS NEVER BEING ABOLISHED OR DIS-PROVEN.
Psalms 25:  Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
 For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD
Before and After the Flood: -A Canopy of mist watered the ground before the rains of the flood. There was no rain for the first 2000 years. God’s judgement upon all flesh came as a result of men forgetting who and WHY they were! God removed the canopy of mist and replaced it with rain & storms to water the ground after the flood. The rainbow represents His promise to never destroy the earth with water again.
Conversely and logically the rain & storms Post Flood were to also be a reminder to man to never forgot WHY they exist and WHO GOD IS.
Species of animals eliminated:
Genesis 6:  And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.
 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
Genesis 7:  And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. How? Because he believed and obeyed. THAT IS HOW GOD INPUTS HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO US.
 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
Animals for food when prior to the flood the animals were not given as food:
Genesis 9:  And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.
 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
God eliminated man’s universalism, or unity together FROM HIS OWN EXPERIENCE watching them come together against the God of Creation:
God changed at the flood, resetting His principles upon the earth.
Post Flood: Where did the different languages and different RACES come from:
-Tower of Babel: The reason of various languages is because of man’s pride and envy all born of satan and sin.
Because of man’s sin and pride from the Tower of Babel God divided all peoples and the earth itself into continents where these people settled AFTER GOD DISPERSED THEM.
God's Adjustment to man's unity was not enough and man continued to rebel. God's then formed His own nation and people through Abraham, Issac and Jacob. ISRAEL began as God’s Nation on Earth to DECLARE HIS GLORY TO ALL the rebellious heathen.
God changed again at Christ and reset His Principles always maintaining the boundaries of His Righteousness.
After national Israel's rejection of the Messiah, God divorced and cursed the nation of Israel.
No physical Nation so no physical blessings nor punishments to be seen without His Physical Nation on earth.
He no longer acts visibly after His Word was completed and His Spirit poured out.
Matt.12  But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
Matt.16  A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
Mark.8  And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
Luke.11  And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.
Among the most significant differences between God's dealing with man before Christ was that He had a physical nation on earth. It was through that physical nation that God's received Glory from the heathen nations. During that period God clearly raised and lowered kingdoms and kings as indicated in the Old Testament for His Glory only.
There is no physical nation on earth during the church age, only a Spiritual one. There is no mention by jot or tittle of any of God's interventions among the physical heathen within the New Testament for a reason. In our time since Christ, God receives His Glory by our individual death to self, including crucified ambitions and interests in Satan's world system and the support of these temporary systems. Nothing is about nations in this age, EVERYTHING is about individual accountability to God only and this is emphasized throughout the New Testament.
All governments that exist during this age are under satan's control period. All are part of the beast's system and none have been installed by God. This is explained more thoroughly below. Remember the last kingdoms on earth described through the Prophet Daniel leading up to the little horn are depicted by God as "beasts".
Signs would no longer be given except the sign of Jonah as it relates to Christ and His Sacrifice for us.
HIS WORD IS THE WRITTEN REPRESENTATION OF THE PERSONALITY OF GOD THROUGH HIS SON the LIVING WORD.
THEREFORE NOW ALL PEOPLE CAN KNOW HIS MIND LIKE THEY KNOW THEIR OWN MINDS:
He then Divorced the nation of Israel and cut them out of the Tree of Life for their national rejection of Jesus Christ.
The New Testament church is HIS NEW BRIDE and spotless before Him being washed by His Blood and clothed in the fine white linen of His Righteousness, without adultery because adultery is impossible for the reborn, remember this later when we speak of Backsliding/Revival and Regeneration.
Unlike in the Old Testament and the failures of Israel living in the flesh and by sight of the prophets who were continuously adulterous against The True God of Creation resulting in God putting away or divorcing Israel during this age and until the end at which time God will graft her back into the Tree of Life and she will become part of His Bride again. However do not confuse this with individual unbelieving racial jews, they have condemned themselves through their rejection of our Lord Jesus Christ over the last time (2000 year church age) and the vast majority of them alive at the end will perish during the last 3.5 years of the Tribulation period.
National Israel CURSED by God due to their rejection of Christ:
Malachi 2:  But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.
At the time of Jesus’ birth, the faithful remnant (true Israel) included believers such as Simeon and Anna (Luke 2:25–38). During Jesus’ adult ministry, true Israel was most visible in those Jewish disciples who believed that Jesus was the Messiah. Those who rejected Jesus were not true Israel, regardless of their race. This included many of the scribes and Pharisees. Though they were physically Jews, they were not true Israel (Rom. 2:28–29). True Israel became defined by union with the true Israelite—Jesus Christ (Gal. 3:16, 29).
On the day of Pentecost, the true Israel, Jewish believers in Jesus, were taken by the Holy Spirit and formed into the center of the New Testament church (Acts 2). The Holy Spirit was poured out on the true Israel, and the same men and women who were part of this true Israel were now the true new covenant church. Soon after, Gentiles began to become a part of this small group.
The rest of the racial jews who did not accept Christ as Messiah, In other words: national Israel were cut off from the Tree of Life, cursed, dispersed and renamed the synagogue of satan BY GOD.
However, if we are talking about true Israel, there really is no distinction. The true Israel of the Old Testament became the nucleus of the true church on the day of Pentecost. What does this mean for our understanding of the relationship between the church and Israel? It means that when true Israel was baptized by the Spirit on the day of Pentecost, true Israel became the New Testament church. Thus, there is continuity between true Israel and the church.
Notice: For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God (Rom 2:28-29).
Believers are no longer citizens of this nation nor this world. We have now become foreigners, pilgrims and strangers to this nation and this world.
Under the Mosaic Law, participation in government was encouraged and in many cases, required. Remember, this Law functioned to address the needs of national Israel and their physical kingdom. The New Testament Church is very different from Old Testament Israel in that it’s a spiritual Kingdom governed by spiritual principles looking PAST this physical world. As such, its recourse is neither physical nor political.
There are several reasons for this:
In the Old Testament God had a physical Kingdom and He used this physical Kingdom for His Glory.
In the New Testament God has no physical Kingdom on earth but a Spiritual one. God is no longer raising and lowering kings or kingdoms. He has no physical, earthly interest in the Kingdoms and affairs on earth during our Age. Of course He knows exactly what will happen throughout the Church age but He influences NONE of it.
World Governments are Beast Systems:
World governments and political establishments are under the temporary power and authority of the “god of this world”. They are blind to God’s Word and refuse to answer to His authority:
2 Corthinians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
In the book of Daniel, the prophet Daniel sees a vision in which four beasts rise out of the sea (Daniel 7:1-26). Later, we discover that these “beasts” correspond to world governments or empires. After them, Daniel sees a MAN, described as the “Ancient of Days”, setting up an everlasting government that eclipses all the ones prior.
Please notice carefully that the final earthly government is symbolized by a man—Jesus Christ—while all the preceding ones are depicted as “beasts”!
Daniel’s vision teaches us an important lesson. In this church age (the last time) and the last days and until Christ’s Kingdom arrives to substitute the current rule, we exist in a world governed by the “beast system”.
Our Lord raises no kings, kingdoms or nations in this age nor does He put them down. It is an obvious and logical conclusion that HE is no longer is vested in the human governments of the world because He no longer maintains a physical NATION ON EARTH during the Church Age in His New Testament.
A basic understanding of the difference between the OLD Testament way God deals with man and the NEW Testament way are the polar opposites. Faith came by sight in the OT and Faith comes without sight in the New Testament.
HOLY SPIRITS JOB IN OUR AGE: The Old Testament BELIEVERS HAD SIGHT AND SIGNS BUT WE HAVE THE PERFECT WORD AND HIS SPIRIT (The Comforter).
The Holy Spirit during our (Church) Age has several missions:
-Declarer of Jesus ONLY, Never Himself
-Guide and teacher
-Restrainer: -Holy Spirit poured out over all flesh and is the restrainer: restraining satan’s power over the PHYSICAL
Holy Spirit indwells all true believers but He also provided restraint to satanic activity over all the earth in which the Gospel had currently spread. The restraint or containment of satanic activity spread in direct correlation to the spread of the Gospel.
His Word has been published in all nations for some time now.
Backsliding is no longer possible for believers in the New Testament:
This statement is based on exclusion and zero mention of any concept such as turning from the Living God after the new birth.
REVIVAL from God came as a result of backsliding in the Old Testament and this is no longer possible for groups during the church age.
Last mention of revival applies only to our Lord’s Millennial Kingdom on earth after Armageddon. Hosea 6:  Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Once He restores His physical Kingdom then shall sight resume and His ROD OF IRON upon the earth.
Then again will be faith by sight even MORE SO than ever before because God will live among us and we will see Him then.
Because of regeneration and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in all those who are born again, NO BACKSLIDING IS POSSIBLE.
NO REVIVAL IS POSSIBLE UNTIL HE STARTS HIS KINGDOM.
In the New Testament, His nation is a spiritual Kingdom within each believer. There is no physical nation or kingdom of God’s on earth during the New Testament. Therefore God does not present His Glory through miracles, signs and wonders but through HIS COMPLETE WORD AND HIS SPIRIT.
He doesnt guide or direct anything during the age of faith without sight. He has no physical nation therefore His Glory is declared by His crucified followers.
Let's contrast this between the Old and New Testaments of God's Word:
In the Old Testament and also once again from the Great Tribulation (last 3.5 years of the tribulation) through the Millennium and Eternity:
Faith was by sight so the blessings and rewards of God to His Children were always visible physically and were earthly blessings which could be SEEN.
In addition, punishments for the wicked were also earthly and could be seen by all.
In the New Testament since Christ's ministry until the end of the Church age:
Faith is without SIGHT in this church age meaning all the Blessings of God to His followers are SPIRITUAL ONLY AND HEAVENLY not to be seen of others.
In addition punishments for the wicked are also Spiritual and Eternal and cannot be witnessed on this earth by anyone.
There are no physical Blessings of God upon us during this age that we live in. All of our rewards and loss will come Spiritually and directly by Jesus at our Judgment during the Tribulation period (Judgment Seat of Christ).
The all boils down to this:
Scripture does not support the idea that God "planned" to send the Living Word to atone for sin at the fall or anytime throughout the OT. To call it His plan once again intimates His control. Scripture shows on every page from Genesis to the Gospels that He patiently gave man every possible chance to believe in, seek and worship Him (Romans 1 is one major indicator). From the garden to the flood to the tower of Babel to Abraham to Sodom/Gomorrah to Israel to Egypt to Babylon, etc..
Hebrews 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Does this sound like a plan with God in complete control to you? Or does it sound like God allowing men to exercise their free will: (There are numerous similar passages).
Psalms 103:13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
