(Someone asked about a bedtime story for kids on a
list I subscribe to, about why God has not destroyed
the devil yet.
Here's something for insight and enlightenment to
Once upon a time God created many angels.
They were given gifts to be with God to serve Him.
The angels were just happy to be sharing in God's
kingdom. God loves them and angels love God in
return. God loves His creation. That was the
"family" in God's kingdom.
Then God decided to create humans too. And God
created humans in His image. More added to the
family. God loves them too and so there were more
love shared in the family with the humans added.
Some angels who saw this were envious and jealous
of humans. They looked superior to the angels and
so that made some angels quite angry.
At one time, one angel dissuaded the humans to
disobey God. (Sibling competition and rivalrly of
That started the fall of humans from God because of
Together with the humans, some angels came down as
well, together with the lead-bad-angel; now also
called the devil.
So God sort of "grounded" the humans for disobeying
and He also ground some of the angels who were
God promised to restore the humans back "to the family"
someday. I don't remember if He plans to do that
to the other "grounded" angels.
That day came when He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ.
Yes indeed, there were plenty of celebrations when
that day came about. Humans were removed from being
"grounded". However, it was too bad for the other
angels, the rest of them who still stayed in heaven.
They too were wiped out and cast away from heaven.
All of them, and more of them, grounded even more.
So, only humans were removed from grounding, I guess.
So the family has been restored.
But watch how this family is still as "free as a bird",
just like before. Any human can still decide what he/she
wants. They are still free to either obey God continuously
or "mingle" with the grounded angels here on earth.
So, right now, we're in-between states - between heaven
O but take note, God made another promise - that He will
Now look at how glorious it was when He fulfilled His
first promise. Well, it will even be MOST HAPPIEST when
He fulfills His second promise - His Second Coming.
That's because then, not only will heaven be bad-angel-free,
but the earth will also be bad-angel-free. However, those who
would attach themselves still to the bad-angels may finally
be thrown to forever-doom-grounding and there, there will never
be turning back. But, it would be glorious and happiest for
those who choose God and they will belong completely then
to one big happy family in the New heaven and earth - where
the created good angels remain together with the humans.
And Everyone - God, angels and humans - live happily ever
