Bible Birth Pains – Are We “Sinners” or Are We Being Reborn into ETERNAL Life?

It is very intriguing to me that littered all over the Bible, and especially in the Old Testament is talk of birth “pangs” or “pains unto childbirth“.

Is the entire Bible about the rebirth of all Creation?

Is the entire Bible about the rebirth of all Creation?

Although we are all suffering in human bodies still filled with pain and darkness, could God have a MUCH bigger plan far beyond the same old story of “man breaking God’s law and being a dirty, rotten sinner” as we are so often taught?

Could we also learn about what occurred in the TRUE, hidden realm of the Spirit by the events, people and places in the physical realm?

Could God have hidden his beautiful story from man by putting it behind a veil in his mind and by calling all the things in the spiritual realm by the same names as we are used to in the physical realm? If so, could we be missing God’s true and glorious story by not seeing past the physical realm and instead focusing on sin and behavior in the natural realm?

Personally, I am convinced that is the case, and I pray the Lord will reveal this to you too.  I am convinced this powerful revelation is the beginning of a most powerful paradigm shift or the changing of the way one sees everything!  This amazing story and plan of God begins to appear to us after we begin to see all the “birth pains” scattered all over the Bible, especially the OLD testament.

Could all the pain right now that all of creation is going through and we are in our bodies, simply be “birth pains” with the very glorious appearance of a new “baby” or spiritual (re)birth at the end? Please consider reading each verse carefully while thinking about what is occurring along these themes and ideas. Also, keep an eye out for matching colors while reminding yourself the Bible is first and foremost a spiritual story.  This spiritual story is THE TRUTH and it takes place in a hidden realm we can’t yet see but is even more true than the realm we can see.

Enjoy!

The Mother of ALL the Living

Who is Eve? Was she just a natural woman or did she tell a much bigger story?

When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. John 16:21

And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. 2 She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. Revelation 12:1-2

Now the man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living. Genesis 3:20

The Enemy

And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. 4 His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour itRevelation 12:4

And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.” Genesis 3:15 

The Birth of the Only “Begotten” Son

By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him 1 John 4:9

English “only begotten” = Greek word monogenés = only “birthed” Son and not a created son.

She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, 6 and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days. Revelation 12:1-6

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. Matthew 4:1

And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Revelation 12:9

And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. Revelation 12:13 

When Darkness Arrived on Earth

For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son Colossians 1:13

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Genesis 1:2

Events on Natural Earth play out from Heavenly Counterparts above 

the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose Genesis 6:2

Out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil Genesis 2:9

The cedars in the garden of God could not rival it,
    nor the fir trees equal its boughs;
neither were the plane trees
    like its branches;
no tree in the garden of God
    was its equal in beauty.
I made it beautiful
    in the mass of its branches,
and all the trees of Eden envied it,
    that were in the garden of God.  Ezekiel 31:8-9

 Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” Genesis 3:1

The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:4-5

When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. Genesis 3:6

For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. 1 John 2:16

and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor 1 Timothy 2:14 

God’s Judgment is GOOD For US

At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently; For when the earth experiences Your judgments The inhabitants of the world learn righteousness Isaiah 26:9

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him John 3:17  Note: Many translations don’t have the word “might” as it’s not in the original Greek.

You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one John 8:15  (Very Words of Jesus!)

God’s Judgments in the Garden and Heaven

And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12 The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” 13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” Genesis 3:11-13

The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life; Genesis 3:14

Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being Genesis 2:7

“Whom are you thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? You shall be brought down with the trees of Eden to the world below. You shall lie among the uncircumcised, with those who are slain by the sword. “This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, declares the Lord God.”  Ezekiel 31:18

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, 8 but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. 11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. 12 Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” Revelation 12:7-12

I made the nations quake at the sound of its fall, when I cast it down to Sheol with those who go down to the pit. And all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, were comforted in the world below  Ezekiel 31:16

Mankind is Given a Physical Human Body to Experience Death via Nakedness

To the woman He said, “I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you will bring forth children; Yet your desire will be for your husband, And he will rule over you.” Genesis 3:16 (NASB)

Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths Genesis 3:7

The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them Genesis 3:21

For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling, if indeed by putting it on we may not be found naked 2 Corinthians 5:2-3

And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies Romans 8:23

God’s Judgment Continues, but Gods ways are MUCH DIFFERENT and BETTER than the ways of Man

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD Isaiah 55:8

But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations Psalms 33:11

The LORD Almighty has sworn, “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will happen Isaiah 13:24

God’s TRUE Order of Death and Life

Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”  John 3:3

Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable 1 Corinthians 15:50

“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. John 12:24

What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it dies first. 1 Corinthians 15:36

and that which you sow, you do not sow the body which is to be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 1 Corinthians 15:37

But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body 1 Corinthians 15:38

So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 1 Corinthians 15:42

For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming 1 Corinthians 15:22-23

God’s Plan for Eve and her Children

Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control. 1 Timothy 2:15

The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance 2 Peter 3:9

When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. John 16:21

Eternal Destruction or New Birth?

Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counselor perished, that pain seized you like a woman in labor? 10 Writhe and groan, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in labor, for now you shall go out from the city and dwell in the open country; you shall go to Babylon. There you shall be rescued; there the Lord will redeem you from the hand of your enemies.  Micah 4:9-10

While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.  1 Thessalonians 5:3

Damascus has become feeble, she turned to flee, and panic seized her; anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her, as of a woman in labor Jeremiah 49:24

O inhabitant of Lebanon, nested among the cedars, how you will be pitied when pangs come upon you, pain as of a woman in labor!”  Jeremiah 22:23

What will you say when they set as head over you those whom you yourself have taught to be friends to you? Will not pangs take hold of you like those of a woman in labor?  Jeremiah 13:21

We have heard the report of it; our hands fall helpless; anguish has taken hold of us, pain as of a woman in labor. Jeremiah 6:24

Therefore my loins are filled with anguish; pangs have seized me, like the pangs of a woman in labor; I am bowed down so that I cannot hear; I am dismayed so that I cannot see.  Isaiah 21:3

Trembling took hold of them there, anguish as of a woman in labor Psalm 48:6

Then they journeyed from Bethel. When they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel went into labor, and she had hard labor. 17 And when her labor was at its hardest, the midwife said to her, “Do not fear, for you have another son.” 18 And as her soul was departing (for she was dying), she called his name Ben-oni; but his father called him Benjamin.  Genesis 35:16-18 

Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand Daniel 12:10

Lord, in trouble they have visited You,
They poured out a prayer when Your chastening was upon them.
17 As a woman with child
Is in pain and cries out in her pangs,
When she draws near the time of her delivery,
So have we been in Your sight, O Lord.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain;
We have, as it were, brought forth wind;
We have not accomplished any deliverance in the earth,
Nor have the inhabitants of the world fallen.

19 Your dead shall live;
Together with my dead body they shall arise.
Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust;
For your dew is like the dew of herbs,
And the earth shall cast out the dead.  Isaiah 26:16-19

 

Natural Bodies Made of the Dust of the Earth (the Realm of Death and Darkness)

Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being Genesis 2:7

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.  Romans 8:18-23

Is God Really making ALL things New?

And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”  Revelation 21:5

For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit 1 Corinthians 12:13

For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ Galatians 3:27

But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap  Malachi 3:2

Remove the dross from the silver, and a silversmith can produce a vessel Proverbs 25:4

This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The LORD is our God.'” Zechariah 13:9

And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire  Revelation 20:15

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea Revelation 21:1

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost  Revelation 22:17

There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him Revelation 22:3

Will God Accomplish His Plan?

Is it time to start your NEW life?

Is it time to start your NEW life?

 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance 2 Peter 3:9

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth 1 Timothy 2:4

So also it is written, “The first MAN, Adam, BECAME A LIVING SOUL.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit 1 Corinthians 15:45

For God did not send his Son into the world that he would condemn the world, but that he would give life to the world by him  John 3:17 Aramaic Bible in Plain English

AND ALL FLESH WILL SEE THE SALVATION OF GOD. Luke 3:6

For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming 1 Corinthians 15:22-23

who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time 1 Timothy 2:6 ESV

When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. John 16:21

What do you think?  Does God maybe have a MUCH bigger and MORE glorious plan that we have seen thus far?  Is God really “good”?   Is he really “Love”?

I am praying for you my friend.
