The One Truth That Lucifer Got Wrong

… And this started a rebellion in heaven.

This Truth is Love.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. We know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
— 1 John 4:8&16, NIV.

A rebellion has started in heaven [1]. God had to cut a piece of Himself away and sent it into a universe where there is death [2]. Only through death can marriage vows be terminated [3]. Only through resurrection can marriage vows be renewed [4]. He sent a part of Him to a world of decay; a world that groans as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time, waiting eagerly for the adoption of humankind to sonship and the redemption of our bodies [5]. He sent us into the world, only to come down alongside us [6], demonstrating to us that He is still there [7], waiting for us to return to Him [8].

The lightbringer watched, deeply confused and traumatised.

“How can this be? That God can destroy Himself for a rebellious partner as they? How can this be? That God can pervert His own glory just so that He can be once more with them? Haven’t they betrayed Him? Haven’t they destroyed heaven? Haven’t they destroyed the joy we’ve always had as a family?” The lightbringer thought to himself.

Never did the lightbringer thought that it was not the way he had thought it to be. God is not full of Himself as he had expected. The entire heaven is not about God. The entire heaven is not about favouritism [9] nor is it about pleasing God. Rather, heaven is about being One with God [10]. The lightbringer cannot wrap his mind around this. The lightbringer has always compared himself with other angelic hosts [11], about how God loved him more than anything else ever created [12].

For the glory of his duty, the lightbringer watched in disgust as God tear Himself apart for the ones He cared about [13]. He put down everything in heaven just to woo His wandering wife back to Him. For all she had done, He divorced her [14] and abandoned her [15]. But God never forsaken her. In loving kindness, God repented to His wife for abandoning her, calling out to her once more to patch the relationship up [16]. He is planning a cosmic remarriage [17].

As a portrayal of His love, God demonstrated Love to all of His creation [18]. He humbled Himself to the point of death as an expression for His love towards us [19]. He put Himself in the centre of the creation for all the universe to see; to see how we’ve rebelled and to what extent God went just to be with us again [20].

The lightbringer thought: the Light must have been extinguished.

But contrary to what the lightbringer thought, the Light is shining now, more brightly than it ever was [21]. It is in this Light where transgressions are cleansed. It is in this Light where sins are forgiven. It is in this Light where all of creation can return to He who gives life. It is in this Light where all of creation can be united in complete unity once again [22].
