Let Love Win!
The Lord’s atonement is for all of God’s children, to take effect on all, in the way that it can, for because Jesus Christ descended below ALL, even Lucifer and his devils, who chose to not follow Jesus Christ, and put themselves in a position where they cannot, and will not do anything good, at least benefit from it in the form of staying alive as to their spirits, to not disassemble and cease to exist, as beings in their current state of progressed experience.
But as for access to the light as comes from the Lord Himself, which is the light of Christ, a special gift given to all those born into mortality, Satan cannot have, nor can he comprehend. For he rejected this, and placed himself and his followers in a state, where again, they cannot, and will not do anything good.
The condition of Satan and his followers, of not being able to do works of righteousness at all (no agency), having denied themselves that privilege when they denied Jesus Christ, is a mercy in their own predicament. For because they cannot do anything good, they are at least afforded the ability to have existent life through Jesus Christ, who descended below all, allowing them to have the opportunity to carry out their own oppositional missions.
But make no mistake, after this life they too will be judged, according to their actions, and they will eventually be burned and purged clean in the realms of hell, known as outer darkness, where there shall be brimstone and burning, weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Further, Adam and Eve would have also died in the very day they would have partaken of the fruit, both spiritually and physically, literally. However, because of the pre-interposed atonement, their days were lengthened, and their probationary state granted.
We all needed the fall, and the atonement, as a one package deal, so that we could be born into mortality, and have the opportunity to repent, learn, grow, and progress towards God, as we move forward on our life’s covenant path and mission, and onward into death, as it pertains to the physical body.
There will then be restored unto us, the full measure of what we meted while on the earth, to receive our reward of that which we have chosen and desired, for earth life provides the necessary opportunities we need, and could not have obtained in our pre-earthly heavenly realm.
In the suffered atonement experience, the Savior took all ill and evil for all of God’s children, including the ones who chose to lose their agency, or the ability to do good, introducing them to earth to tempt us, even the adversary, because they rejected the Savior. They will have to suffer for their own sins, even as they are now influencing us to do evil. Jesus Christ is the undergirding principle of life for all, because of who He is, what He did, and all He continues to do.
Then, while the righteous are enjoying eternal life (God’s lifestyle), those who originally followed Satan, including the sons of perdition, will be cast out into outer darkness, where they will be burned and purged clean, not by their own choice, but by force, into the lake of fire and brimstone. They will stay there for all of their “3rd estate,” during which time we will be enjoying ours in glory, in the kingdom in which we have attained through Jesus Christ’s aid in love, grace, repentance, forgiveness and obedience.
Then, after finally becoming clean, the adversary will then come to themselves, and to their senses, and begin to make their long, arduous, and difficult trek home, up until the Great Morning of Reconciliation, wherein all things that which were lost, even the ultimate prodigals, shall be found and return. “For he was dead, and is alive again.”
For God is a perfect God, with perfect love, and a perfect plan, and He will not lose any of His children, nor our Mother(s) in Heaven.
Once we are all through with our third estate, we will all be called up again, unto another next higher, greater and better 1st, 2nd and 3rd estate, wherein we will all begin again, with another pre-mortal, mortal and post mortal life, with a greater eternal prospect and circumstance. For it has been done before, and will be done again, all thought out eternal lives.
Lucifer, and our other brothers and sisters who followed him too, will then finally also be called up, and able to re-join us, having become again children of God by suffrage, with the divine penitence of children, in this next eternal life, having completely played out their roles of helping us grow to achieve our exalted status, wherein all things will have been forgiven and forgotten, and life for us all will move forward, and on into this next eternal life. For even the adversary, who needed to progress, needed this experience of complete and utter rebellion, to be able to move on to his next steps and lessons.
Everyone will always have a different role to play throughout the eternities, and they will each change with every eternal life we experience, all in the context and concourse of our growth in the eternities, and eternal lives.
