This Sabbath we are dealing with the Judgment of the Demons (No 080). We have to remember when dealing with God’s Plan of Salvation that it is perfect and just, and that because God is not a respecter of persons that there is no injustice, and that it is His will that no flesh shall die. Satan is the “father of lies” and he has spread lies about the Plan of Salvation (No. 001A) . He has also done all he can to stop the plan and the appointment of the Elect as Elohim (No. 001). He created the lie about heaven and hell, and the plan of sending the dead to heaven and hell. So also the demons are held in fear by Satan’s lies over their being sent to and kept in Hell when no such plan exists. Tartaros is the place of retention of the Fallen Host until they are killed and resurrected for the Second Resurrection and Judgment as humans.
The Demons have not been judged as yet. Demons are the fallen Host of the Angels and the Bible is clear that we shall judge Angels. It is clear that those of the First Resurrection are destined to judge Angels (1Cor. 6:3). The demons require Judgement, but the Loyal Host have been loyal and have retained their position among the Host and require no judgment. Only the Fallen Host require that Judgment and that process is covered in this paper under study this week. Their judgment has been handed to the Elect and they will be dealt with in the entire sequence of judgment at the Second Resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B), when the demons are raised from the dead to be judged against our conduct and under our judgment.
Hell was invented as an instrument of fear and an accusation against the Nature of God by the Fallen Host under the lies of Satan. These lies of Satan also entered the Church of God under the ministry of Herbert Armstrong and his Third Resurrection Doctrine (Fallacy of the Third Resurrection (No. 166)), and also of the Adventists using similar lies under the false doctrine of the Millennium and the Rapture (No. 095).
When we deal with those of the Second Resurrection we will judge all of those in that resurrection and confine some of those people for their own protection. Some, such as the Popes and Bishops and some ministry, will be confined for their own protection. Rather, like Dantes Inferno, where he placed the popes in the lowest levels of hell, we will place those people like, Armstrong, White, Rutherford etc and the Popes and Bishops in Cities of Refuge in the initial phases for their own safety.
It is not God’s will that any should perish and that means none will and we are there to ensure that is so.
If we are not able to spend one hundred years to ensure their education and safety then we will not be in the First Resurrection (No. 143A).
This is your training and judgment and if we do not qualify in the eyes of God in order to implement His Will we will not be there in that position.
