Why Go2 Heaven, when U Can Go With Jesus? Part II: GOD HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO LIVE ON THE EARTH WITH MEN

A perplexing question, after I came to the knowledge of the truth, about how Bible readers can conclude that God/Jesus wants to take them to heaven. Contrary to popular belief the polar opposite is true, Jesus is coming with His saints to this earth, and will live HERE, as King, forever.
                                                                                                                                                   
"And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering. And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,

Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,

And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell Among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.

And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof. And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof. And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.

And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount. Exodus 25:1-3, 6, 8-9, 17-20, 22, 40 

The mercy seat represents the place where God sat and forgave Israel's wickedness; still between the two cherubims every since Genesis 3:24. Jesus, the only God man has ever known, reeeally wanted to dwell on the earth amongst His creation. 

Verse 8, insinuates that the purpose of building the Tabernacle is so that God could dwell with Israel. Even in Genesis, the Most High God, walked thru the garden of Eden before Adam and Eve spoke with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Consider also, that this Tabernacle is patterned after the Tabernacle that the Lord has in heaven.
(A house on earth, just like His house in heaven).
 
But did God really visit with Moses?

"And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them;

And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him." Numbers 7:1, 89

Not only did god visit Moses but he did so in the sight of all the people; even after the tabernacle of the congregation was not in the midst of Israel. (Exodus 33:8-11)

Visiting and talking is one thing, but God gave a commandment while the Children of Israel were in the wilderness, that sure makes it look like God was in the midst...

"Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou shalt go forth abroad: And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee: For the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee." Deuteronomy 23:12-14

God was soo close to Israel that He made them cover their waste after defecating because he was there, WALKING THRU THE CAMP, and didn't want to see the waste!

However, the people defected, and eventually God left His angel to guide the people in the wilderness. Why? Because he would've killed every man on the way! (Exodus 33:1-3,5) 
It was also during this time the tabernacle of the congregation was placed outside the camp. V.8-11 

So we have learned that it has long been God's desire to be here amongst His creation, since walking through the Garden of Eden. He warned us in Genesis chapter 6 that His spirit would not always strive with man.
God still tried again after the flood with Noah, when He chose Israel to be His priests. So-far, in the story, the children of Israel, have successfully ran the Most High God out of the congregation.
By Exodus 33:8-11, if you wanted to witness, petition, commune, worship or hear the God of the Bible, you had to leave the from where everyone lived, and walk a distance away from the borders of the camp.  And why not, makes perfect sense to me, if the people are committed to wickedness, they will perish in their wickedness. 

May the Lord add A blessing to the reading of His Word,


Locksmif... Knowledge is the Key


Spoiler Alert: 
In part III we're going to find out THe ONLY reason God (Jesus) does not presently dwell on the earth with men, is because man, ran the Most High from off the Earth!

Check back before the weekend, for, Why Go2 Heaven, when U Can Go With you Jesus? Part III: Why doesn't God live on the Earth, WITH the people that He created?
