Eden II

Eden II

God woke me up yesterday morning with something really great on my mind that I want to share with you but I got so busy fixing stuff that I forgot about it so He woke me up this morning with the same thing on my mind and more information so I figure I better write about it now.

This essay is about a promise God gave me concerning the Millennial Reign of Jesus and I realized this promise is for all of us and it is incredible. Believe me, you will want to accept Jesus as your savior, get right with God, and walk with God because it is easily going to be the best time in the history of this planet.

First, I have explain some things about the Millennial Reign of Jesus and about me to lay the ground work so you will better understand.

Most people don't realize that part of what Jesus will be doing with His Millennial Reign is showing us what the Garden of Eden would have been like under His rule, IF Adam and Eve had not sinned and brought death and corruption into the world. Therefore, I call that reign "Eden II".

We are going to live for a 1,000+ years with Jesus as our king under Biblical Law. The Bible tells us that there will be no crime or war, meaning that there will be no corruption. At the end it tells us that God will turn Satan loose "for a little while because everyone must be tested".

Note that only God knows how long "a little while" is for God so that it could be 50 years or 300 years. We don't know but it will be AFTER the 1,000 years of living in peace with Jesus.

Remember that God said that life is a test.

This tells us quite a bit such as everyone who has never been tested like unborn babies and others will come back as part of the "hosts of Heaven" to the Battle of Armageddon with Jesus and must live until they have been tested by Satan more than 1,000 years later and, everyone who is born during that 1,000 year reign must live to be tested by Satan.

Therefore, it is certain that no one will die during that 1,000 years so everyone can be tested before Judgment Day. God even showed me in a dream years ago that, just before the last battle where God, the Father, will destroy the entire invading army with fire from above, I was sitting on horses with my wife, her best friend, and Jesus looking down over that invading army so that we will live for more than 1,000 years, all of those who go into that reign with Jesus.

You see, during that time, there will be no death just like was the case in the Garden of Eden before Adam and Eve sinned. We will be completely under the rule of Jesus just like in the Garden of Eden. There will be no crime, wars, or corruption so that, for the first time in history, there will be peace for 1,000 years, just like in the Garden of Eden. You also have to understand that will be the seventh millennium for the existence of Earth because we are right now finishing the sixth millennium so that millennium will be the planet's day of rest or Sabbath.

Remember that Jesus told us that a 1,000 years with man is as a day with God so that will be God's seventh day or Sabbath or a day of rest from evil that we will spend communing with God. It will not be a holy day but a holy millennium.

It also tells us that people will be born but, for everyone to be tested, women will have to stop having children long enough before the end of time as we know it for the last children born to be properly tested, which will probably be right about the end of that millennium and then everyone who has never been tested will be tested by Satan, many will choose to follow Satan, form an army of rebellion to the north of Israel and the throne of Jesus to invade, conquer, and dethrone the Son of God, Himself and that is when God will destroy that army and we will all go straight into Judgment Day.

In my first semester in college in the spring of 1968, I decided that what I wanted to do with my life was to help other people as much as I can and I have been learning, researching, and doing that since then, even with me being severely ill, and I love it because it is very rewarding to know that you just helped someone else have a little better life.

I decided I wanted to use sports to help young people because a lot of young people are drawn to sports and sports are a good way to teach young people to dream and how to achieve their dreams without cheating or being corrupt. I also found and fell in love with bicycle road racing but I have also been trained to participate in, coach, officiate, manage, and promote almost 20 different sports and studied at least 30 different sports on my own. I have pdf files backed up for the rules for about 30 sports I read to see whether and how to incorporate them into my Cantrell Velodrome sports programs but that is not what this essay is about.

With my Los Angeles Racing Team I founded in 1986, coached, and directed, I had an open door policy to where, if you joined the program and did what I said, I didn't care how good or lousy you were, you got coaching the same as anyone else. Because of that, the program quickly grew to more than 125 racers from beginners to pros, 12 year olds to Masters, and men and women and that is with about 75 to 100 of them quitting to go on with their lives so that I coached at least 200 people in that 5 years.

I was told by one internationally ranked coach that it was impossible for me to do what I was doing "because no coach can effectively coach more than a maximum of 20 to 30 athletes at one time" and no one could do what I was doing.

God can and, through me, He did the impossible.

What he didn't know was that I was also coaching 3 different sports at the same time; bicycle road racing, bicycle track racing, and mountain bike racing with all 3 of them requiring different coaching, which all coaches know is impossible.

"Why, you can't coach more than one sport at a time."

By the grace of God, I did and I only recently realized that God was just letting me have a taste of what HE can do through me and has in store for me during the Millennial Reign of Jesus and this was at a time when bicycle road racing was one of the two most popular sports in the world.

With me as the only coach, LART became one of the best teams in the world in all classes and categories and had the best farm/developmental program I have seen anywhere and I looked to find others to get ideas on how to improve my program and couldn't find anyone as good as my program. My men's team had one pro and a bunch of amateurs and we beat some of the best full pro teams in the world, even top 10 ranked pro teams.

That is like a college football team going to the NFL playoffs and beat some of the best pro football teams, which is considered impossible.

Remember that I taught you a little secret God taught me?

You never ask the question, "Can I do this?"; you only ask the question, "HOW can I do this?" because nothing is impossible with God so what you need to know is how you can do it.

When I showed up with my "upstart pro-am team", as it was called, against those pro teams, I never even considered the thought of "Can I beat those teams" because I had already taught my riders how to beat those teams and we won races against some of the best in the world with just one pro and a handful of amateurs.

I was told by a top international agent for bicycle racing who worked with the best pro teams in the world that I was easily one of the 10 best pro men's coaches in the world. I think he might have known what he was talking about.

I was told by some of my competitors from top US women's teams that my women's team was the top women's team in the US, which made it one of the top 3 to 4 women's teams in the world.

I was told by some of my competitors that my Junior (18 and under) team was the best Junior team in the US, which made us one of the top 10 teams in the world.

My masters team regularly defeated defending world champions, which made it one of the best masters teams in the world.

And that was just within bicycle road racing with me having individuals consistently winning and placing in both track and mountain bike racing at the same time with more than 125 athletes total. By the grace of God, I did what all other coaches consider impossible but it gets better.

Oh, I had hundreds of wins and placings in just the last few years but my favorite trophies were the people who were achieving their dreams and having better lives because of me and what I taught them. In just 5 years, I helped at least 200 to more than 250 people have better lives and that was nice.

Today, I am still in touch with some of those people and they all had better lives because of what I taught them. I literally saved kids lives by keeping trouble makers out of street gangs and teaching them to be good people.

I was told by someone in Southern California that LART is a legend.

After I left the program and was getting ready to go back to college, I met one former racer who told me he was looking for me to thank me for what I taught him because he used what I taught him to become the vice president for a medium size corporation in just a few years.

In just 5 years, I achieved more than most people will achieve if they live to be 100. I don't know how many times I have thanked God for the many blessings He has given me.

I used that and much more that no one has seen yet to design my Cantrell Velodrome sports facilities and program and am looking forward to getting it started some day but, because of all of these bad things going on, I had pretty much stopped dreaming myself about anything good happening before that Millennial Reign until God told me to post it on Gofundme. God used that to jump start my dreaming again because He is going to move soon in my life.

Knowing all of that, I woke both yesterday and this morning with God asking me, "How much more can you achieve and how many people can you help during the 1,000 year Millennial Reign of Jesus?"

Super WOW, what can I achieve and how many people can I help with perfect health and 1,000 years of peace with what God has taught me? How much can God do through me in 1,000 years, after what He did through me in just a few years?

It didn't take much thinking for me to realize that I can't even begin to imagine what God can do through me in 1,000 years with a healthy body and mind and a peaceful planet, especially with Him having already done the impossible through me. Just the thought blew me away.

You see, my idea is to build my sports facility and use it train managers, coaches, officials, and others to be the best they can be and then use the profits from it to start other such programs in other cities throughout the US and Mexico at first but later everywhere.

God showed me in a dream years ago that He would make my program so successful I would barely be able to keep up with it, which is why He is going to force me to marry that younger woman I told you about but I have never told anyone her name because she used to be a competitive dancer, started her own dancing business, and is very intelligent, with a degree in biology and I will need her, her family, and her best friend to help me keep up with my sports business.

Note that her being a competitive dancer is why I designed my facility and programs to include competitive dancing for her and her best friend because I know she will want that and I care about other people. She will love that and I know it.

Now, you take all of that and put it into the 1,000 year Reign of Jesus with me and my family having 1,000 years to build and manage that program and, after just an hour or two of thinking about it for the first time (I had never thought about this before, what was I going to do in that millennium?), I realized it is not possible for me to even begin to imagine what God can do through me and how many people I can help. It blew my mind.

I could easily build the programs all over the world to help from tens of millions of people and even on other planets God told me we will colonize, especially young people and children, to billions of them in 1,000 years. That excites the crap out of me. WOW! Dare to dream and then trust in God.

Now this promise isn't just for me but is for everyone who is a true Christian and goes into the Millennial Reign of Jesus.

What dreams have YOU had and you will have 1,000 years to achieve those dreams? What does God have planned for YOU during the Millennial Reign of Jesus? Does that knock your socks off or what?

For example, Mark is a retired preacher who loves helping run a small church and being an occasional preacher. He loves helping people by teaching them about God/Jesus.

What does God have planned for him during that 1,000 years? Is he going to be the founder and "father" of a million churches helping billions of people all over the world and on other planets?

With God working through him for 1,000 years, Mark can easily do that.

I know another Christian named Arthur who loves helping others by teaching them about God.

What is God going to do through him?

I cannot begin to imagine because, with God, NOTHING is impossible. Just ask me. Let me tell you that God doing the impossible through you is really fun; believe me.

You just might want to accept Jesus as your savior, get right with God, and walk with God because, if you do, God has incredible plans for all of you going into the Millennial Reign with Jesus. You cannot begin to imagine what God can do through you.

Also remember that Jesus told the Apostles that He was going to prepare things for us that have never entered into the heart of man. Jesus was telling us that YOU cannot begin to imagine what He has planned for us.

What is YOUR dream?

I know from personal experience that God can do better. He can do the impossible through you. Dare to dream and then trust in God. I want to meet up with Mark, Arthur, and others at year 950 to see what God has done through them.

Welcome to Eden II. What a wonderful time that is going to be.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

You better....

Pray long, pray hard, pray often!!!
