Scene XVI: The Final Act
Transcript of Scene XVI: The Final Act
Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? Ezekiel 18:23
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Ezekiel 28:14
The Covering Cherub was Fireproof
Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned. Song of Solomon 8:7
Heavenly Language: Fire = Love
For our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:29
Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou
wast created, till
was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast
: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub,
from the midst of the stones of fire
. Ezekiel 28:15-16
I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee,
, and I will bring thee to
upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. v18
All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and
never shalt thou be any more
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27
What were the Stones of Fire?
And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne,
as the appearance of a sapphire stone
: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.
And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. Ezekiel 1:26-27
Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: And they saw the God of Israel: and there
was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone
, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. Exodus 24:9-10
And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them. Exodus 24:12
Law of God written upon the fiery stone
of His throne!
And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them. Yea, he loved the people; Deuteronomy 33:2-3
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
If ye love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15
Love enabled Lucifer to be Fireproof,
and dwell in the presence of God
in the midst of the stones of fire.
sin transgresseth also the law:
for sin is the transgression
of the law. 1 John 3:4
Adam and Eve Created Perfect (without Iniquity.)
They could dwell in the presence of God.
They were FIREPROOF.
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool:
his throne was like the fiery flame
and his wheels as burning fire. Daniel 7:9
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife
hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God
amongst the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:8
And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. Genesis 3:9-10
Afraid of the FIRE.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18
Perfect Love makes us FIREPROOF.
The purpose of the Gospel is to make us able to dwell in the fiery presence of God without being consumed!
The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?
He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.
Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off. Isaiah 33:14-17
And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. Exodus 3:2-4
That which God dwells in becomes FIREPROOF!
And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16
That which God dwells
in becomes Fireproof!
Purpose of the Sanctuary was to make man fireproof again. How?
Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Daniel 3:22-25
1. What happens to the wicked who are not fireproof?
2. What happens to the righteous that are fireproof?
The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out. Levitcus 6:13
And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.
And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your generations. Exodus 30:7-8

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death
. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:12-15
The Fire is Everlasting, Eternal
Not the Wicked!
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone
in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Here is the patience of the saints:
here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Revelarion 14:9-12 FIREPROOF
In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from
the presence of the Lord
, and from the glory of his power; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9.
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. Revelation 21:22-23, 27

Lake of Fie
And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us
before the time?
2. Does not teach when the wicked
are to be destroyed.
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 1 Peter 3:18-20
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:
Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever. Exodus 21:5-6
And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt
thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD

hath sent me unto you: this is my name
for ever, and this is my memorial unto
all generations. Exodus 3:15
