The Fourth Book Of Ezra 1:7-1:8
"Was it not I who brought them out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage?" I noticed a thing with the black community of the new age movement. I see a lot of them that cherish egyptian symbols/culture/idols etc, with a strong love or embrace. And i wonder if it was programmed to them unknowingly, or if those people actually realize that egypt used to be a strong reproach to them in the past /(africans/AA/ethic people). The reason i point this out is because this evil likes to hide truth in plain sight, or rebrand old reproaches to be in modern time "new and glorious". They rebrand pagan, babylonian, idolizing beliefs into some new spiritual belief.
The Fourth Book Of Ezra 7:6-7:9
"There is a city built and set on a plain, and it is 7 full of all good things; but the entrance to it is narrow and set in a precipitous 8 place, so that there is fire on the right hand and deep water on the left; and there is only one path lying between them, that is, between the fire and the water, so 9 that only one man can walk upon that path. If now that city is given to a man for an inheritance, how will the heir receive his inheritance unless he passes through the danger set before him?" This verse talks about the inheritance of the "World". We must remember adam and mankind* was banished from paradise, so this world we live in right now is possibly not the same place the first human was created at... At the very least this worlds struggle is not the end, nor is this world our reward and life.
The Fourth Book Of Ezra 7:11-7:14
"I made the world for their sake, and when Adam transgressed my statutes, what  had been made was judged. And so the entrances  of this world were made narrow and sorrowful and toilsome; they are few and evil, full of dangers and involved  in great hardships. But the entrances of the greater world are broad and safe, and  really yield the fruit of immortality." Notice the saying "greater world". I am one to believe that this world we live in is not the best thing it can be, and by design.
The Fourth Book Of Ezra 7:46-7:51
"For who among the living is there that has not sinned, or who  among men that has not transgressed your covenant? And now I see that the world  to come will bring delight to few, but torments to many. For an evil heart has grown up in us, which has alienated us from God, and has brought us into corruption and the ways of death, and has shown us the paths of perdition and removed us far from life—and that not just a few of us but almost all who have been created!"  He answered me and said, 'Listen to me , Ezra, and I will instruct you, and  will admonish you yet again. -For this reason the Most High has made not one 5:32  world but two." Perhaps thats why in this world, unrightousness is free to live gloriously. Also, this explains clearly that those of old time knew that this world was secondary in nature, and not our inheritence/life or our final resting place
The Fourth Book Of Ezra 7:60-7:61
"for i will rejoice over the few who shall be saved, because it is they who have made my glory to prevail  now, and through them my name has now been honored. And I will not grieve over the multitude of those who perish; for it is they who are now like a mist, and are similar to a flame and smoke—they are set on fire and burn hotly, and are extinguished." I like how this fourth book of ezra pretty much goes into ezras mentality, still having concern towards unrightousness, while answering all questions we have towards the unfair feelings of mankinds "judgement". Something we can all relate to is the questions of concern about our families, friends, and fellow people about punishment for pretty much what one could call brainwashing. This verse explains not torment but complete destruction, as well as the verses above explaining the grace and goodness of god even in unrightousness.
The Fourth Book Of Ezra 12:31-12:32
"And as for the lion that you saw rousing up out of the forest and roaring and speaking to the eagle and reproving him for his unrighteousness, and as for all his 32 words that you have heard, this is the Messiah" whom the Most High has kept until the end of days, who will arise from the posterity of David, and......" The messiah will arise from the POSTERITY OF DAVID, Aka through the 12 tribes, or through the covenant of abraham etc.
The Fourth Book Of Ezra 12:34
"But he will deliver in mercy the remnant of my people, those who have been saved throughout my borders, and he will make them joyful 7:2 until the end comes, the day of judgment, of which I spoke to you at the beginning". One of my biggest concerns is how the good people will be, right up until judgment day. Will all die and be destroyed like the rest? H And will good be able to prosper and live like the ancestors?
