[914] The Prodigal Son

11 Then he said: A certain man had 2 sons [Lucifer/Satan the firstborn and Michael the younger of these two].
12 And the younger of them said to his father, 'Father, give me the part of the property that falls to my share.' Then he divided his means of living to them.
13 Later, after not many days, the younger son gathered all things together and travelled abroad into a distant country, and there squandered his property by living a debauched life.
14 When he had spent everything, a severe famine occurred throughout that country, and he started to be in need.
15 He even went and attached himself to one of the citizens of that country [a demonic administrator], and he sent him into his fields to herd swine [manage demons - he became a demon overseer].
16 And he used to desire to be filled with the carob-pods/little horns which the swine were eating [demonic power games], and no one would give him [anything] [because the demons want all the power for themselves - no one gives away power when they have no love].
17 When he came to his senses, he said, 'How many hired men of my father are abounding with bread [pre-adamics], while I am perishing here from famine!
18 I will rise and journey to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven [going with female demon harlots] and against you.
19 I am no longer worthy of being called your [angelic] son. Make me as one of your hired [ones] [a human, who is not a son and not a part of God's household. But can be hired by God for a purpose. A Pre adamic human].'

5 Keep this mental attitude in you that was also in Christ Jesus,
6 who, although he was existing in God's form, gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God.
7 No, but he emptied himself and took a slave's form and came to be in the likeness of men. (Philippians 2 NWT)

20 So he rose and went to his father [Jesus did that]. While he was yet a long way off, his father caught sight of him and was moved with pity, and he ran and fell upon his neck [became his head instantly. He reaccepts his son. He who is forgiven much loves much] and tenderly kissed him.
21 Then the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy of being called your son. Make me as one of your hired men [Michael offered to become human, actually pre-adamic, in order to return to his father's family. God said no you can keep your angel. Then when Adam sinned Michael offered that angel again for Adam, and thought he would have to become human indefinitely. God once again surprised him and upgraded him to have an everlasting angel].'
22 But the father said to his slaves, 'Quick! bring out a robe, the first one [the first everlasting angelic body. Michael would have been given this at 1NC first fruits on 3990Nisan16-22, after having secured the firstborn angelic rights which enabled him to become the head of the 2nd Holy Spirit. Since a sealing into that Holy Spirit meant everlasting life. A selaing into the reformed first Holy Spirit gave the angel and immunity from Tartarus. The gift of everlasting life was an engagment present from God to Michael, the head of his second wife - see U65 for the details of a typical Jewish wedding], and clothe him with it [Michael was expecting to become human. He was definitely NOT expecting this and more to the point neither was Lucifer/Satan], and put a ring on his hand [the ARC, SAC, NAC, JAC, 1NC, 5 fingers, 5 spirit covenants that Michael mediated] and sandals/bolts/locks on his feet [10 laws of 10 churches, Adam, Melchizedek, Nahor, Moses, FDS1, FDS2, FDS3, FDS4, Re-appointed Laodicea, OMC-Zoar] .
23 And bring the fattened young bull, slaughter it [Adam] and let us eat [learn from running the world] and enjoy ourselves,
24 because this my son was dead and came to life again [Jesus died as an everlasting angel and came to life as a human and then as a God - he could not return to being an angel having permanently given up that right for Adam - unless one day Adam reciprocates?]; he was lost and was found [present absent present].' And they started to enjoy themselves.

5 For example, to which one of the angels did he ever say: You are my son; I, today, I have become your father? And again: I myself shall become his father, and he himself will become my son? (Hebrews 1 NWT)

47 By virtue of this, I tell you, her sins, many though they are, are forgiven, because she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little. (Luke 7 NWT)

He who is forgiven much loves much.

The events in the interpretation do not follow the order of the events in the parable. Jesus' offer to ransom Adam was his request to be made as one of the hired ones.

25 Now his older son was in the field; and as he came and got near the house he heard a music concert and dancing [celebrating the ARC, the the founding of the world initially under Michael].
26 So he called one of the servants to him and inquired what these things meant.
27 He said to him, 'Your brother has come, and your father slaughtered the fattened young bull, because he got him back in good health.'
28 But he became wrathful and was unwilling to go in. Then his father came out and began to entreat him.
29 In reply he said to his father, 'Here it is so many [causal] years I have slaved for you and never once did I transgress your commandment [Satan had never sinned under this particular angelic law], and yet to me you never once gave a kid for me to enjoy myself with my friends.

14 You are the anointed cherub that is covering [Lucifer, the head of the 1st Holy Spirit], and I have set you. On the holy mountain of God you proved to be. In the midst of fiery stones you walked about [as the head of the 1st Holy Spirit]. (NWT)
15 You were faultless in your ways from the day of your being created until unrighteousness was found in you. (Ezekiel 28 NWT)

30 But as soon as this your son who ate up your [ means of] living with harlots arrived, you slaughtered the fattened young bull for him.'
31 Then he said to him, 'Child, you have always been with me [Satan was created before light matter space-time. But not before dark matter angelic time. He said: Let there be light - hence he is called Lucifer, the bringer of light - space time is just the wake of light], and all the things that are mine are yours;
32 but we just had to enjoy ourselves and rejoice, because this your brother was dead and came to life, and he was lost and was found.' (Luke 15 NWT)

Satan is the brother of a Michael either with an everlasting angel - the first such robe. Or the is the brother of a Michael who was lost and then found in the 2nd presence when he was a God. It all depends how much of a brother Satan is here. If Satan is a brother of Michael who has already given up his angel, then he is a brother of a God. So Satan will get an everlasting angel and become a God himself. He will become the true divine brother of Michael and the true divine son of God that he was born to be. So when Jesus said: Get thee behind me Satan. He meant: Become the next God directly after me!

So here is the motivation for Jesus volunteering to ransom Adam. He who is forgiven much loves much. This whole world exists because God loved Michael that much. And Michael responded by loving Adam that much. Michael may have reasoned that he did not even deserve his angelic body given his abuse of it, and was happy to become human instead.

13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15 KJV)

The History of our Understanding of the predicament of Satan

A certain young sister, started thinking about why humans are condemned to everlasting death as a result of 70 years of sin (as we understood at the time), but Satan, who sinned in the Garden of Eden and has been sinning for millennia since then, was still alive today!

She asked the writer the following type of question: If the first new covenant saints sin against the holy spirit during their baptism period they go to Gehenna right? So how come Satan isn't already there, because he has spent eons sinning against the holy spirit, yet he still lives? We should point out that this line of thought had been a fixation of this young sister's family, especially her father, since their baptism. 

Gordon initially thought that the sister was being unrealistic and had watched too many Cinderella movies! Gordon was at that time writing a lament about Satan from God's standpoint for his musical. The chorus started like this:

Its too late to say you're sorry, now the damage has been done,
Its too late to seek forgiveness now the kingdom has begun...

But every time he sang the chorus, which chorus is imagined to be sung by God in the Musical, it just did not feel right. It just was not the sort of thing God would say or sing! So he rewrote it as follows:

Its not too late to say your sorry, for the damage that you've done
Its not to late to say I love you to the highest holy one...

He then burst into tears, because this sounded like the God he was familiar with, this was the God he was singing about. This was the God he worshipped. So he then began believing that God maybe watched Cinderella movies too! 

When the writer was studying with the Jehovah's Witnesses, they told him that Adam was not going to be resurrected because Jesus ransomed Adam's kids, but not Adam himself, who had sinned against the holy spirit. This sin put Adam in Gehenna, so that Adam was now switched off permanently and had basically had his chips - he was told. This made the writer very sad, for he is a firstborn son himself. He could not see how God could just give up on his firstborn son like that after one screw up. Well, the LWs know today that Adam himself is ransomed directly by Jesus, and that this is how his children are saved. God in a sense created this entire world to save Adam. God did not give up on his firstborn son Adam, no. 

Rather, knowing in advance that Adam would sin, he built a 6400 kilometre radius planet which was eventually populated by 7 billion of his sons in order to save him. So now the writer asked himself the same question about Satan, who was certainly born before Adam. If God worked out and saw through to completion, a huge and complicated plan to save Adam, his firstborn human son, would he not be able to work out and see through an even more huge and even more complicated plan to save Satan, a son born even before Adam? (in fact Satan was God's firstborn angelic son - see Intro19). Perhaps a 15 billion light year universe was the length to which Jehovah was prepared to go to save his firstborn angel, Lucifer?

Then the scriptures came flooding in, and the revised corrected thought processes began once more. Doctrinal somersaults were performed, and what was an imperfect and incomplete half interpretation of Gehenna began to approach art itself, even the art of God - see Intro14.
