Before the Foundation

Revelation 13:8 And ALL who dwell on the EARTH shall worship him,  Whose NAME has not Been written from the FOUNDATION of the World in the SCROLL of the LIFE Of THAT LAMB  who Was KILLED.  See:

This translation of verse 8 presents a distinctly different translation that suggests those whose names ARE written in the Book of Life were there before the foundation of the world.  This is consistent with Job 38 when FATHER was challenging Job’s understanding and knowledge:

4 ​​“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?

​​Tell Me, if you have understanding.

5 ​​Who determined its measurements?

​​Surely you know!

​​Or who stretched the line upon it?

6 ​​To what were its foundations fastened?

​​Or who laid its cornerstone,

7 ​​When the morning stars sang together,

​​And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

The Sons are those who do not worship the beast or this world system.  Jesus referred to them as “the sheep” in Matthew 25:

31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

Our minds have difficulty in grasping the concept of existence prior to the womb yet this is one of the mysteries our spirit will grasp as we open our eyes to the Book of Life and it originating before the foundation of the world.  FATHER clearly intended to prepare the kingdom for our inheritance with us expressly in HIS Mind and intent.  Paul spoke of this truth in Ephesians 1:

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love (agape),

5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

I am convinced that the revelation of the Sons cannot be separated from the revelation of Love.  The revelation of Love comes into its fullness in the final book of the Bible… by design.  It is hidden for those Sons to search out and once again embrace as they are being fully prepared and matured into perfection for the purpose established before the foundation of the world.  The current world system will disintegrate before our very eyes as the ministry of the Sons is fulfilled.  The restoration of all mankind will result as Christ and HIs Body minister Life to all.  This ministry will be irresistible and men will be drawn unto Christ resulting in every knee bowing and every tongue confessing Jesus Christ is LORD.  In Jesus’ prayer to FATHER in John 17, He mentions this revelation “before the foundation”:

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

As we move forward in this revelation of FATHER’S Divine Intent, we will be able to behold, see, and awaken to HIS Glory.  We are to be with Him in Heavenly Places, caught up by FATHER’S perfect Plan, Will, and purpose.  We will be awakened to the fact that we truly were with HIM before the foundation of the world.   Think about it, dwell on it, embrace it if you can.  FATHER’S Divine Intent precedes manifestation and that hold true for us as well as the rest of the universe.
