God’s Eternal Redemption Plan
For His People

By Diane Jurino


 

 


Chapter 6

The Everlasting Kingdom of God
 

 

John 14:2-3 “In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.”

The Lord created us for intimate fellowship with Him. We are made in His very image and likeness to be His constant companions, His beloved sons and daughters. He desires to take an active interest in all the details of our lives and provide for all of our needs in abundance. He has the heart of a Father and He will not be content until we abide in His holy presence, as He planned. 

Jesus promised His followers that we would always be together with Him, regardless of where He went. He is returning at the end of this age and we will soon be reunited with Him for all of eternity. The Kingdom of God will be coming to the earth and the Lord will gather us into it, as He said He would do. There will never be a separation between God and man ever again.

If we have been loving, righteous and obedient, we will enter into Christ’s Kingdom and enjoy all of its many benefits. Our very bodies will be changed to put on immortality, and we will become like Him in every way. We will be healthy and vigorous, and immune to disease and decay. We will have all of our needs met in abundance from all the vast resources of the universe. 

Our heavenly Father will see that we share equally in His many blessings. We will thrive in His presence and keep company with both men and angels. We will all dwell in love, peace and unity with one another, and worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth. We will also journey to Jerusalem for all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days, and fellowship with Him on His holy mountain. 

Romans 14:17 “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”

We must spread the good news of the Kingdom of God to all who may be receptive to it. Men will be destroyed in their sin unless they are given the opportunity to believe in Jesus Christ and all that He did for us. Our faith in Him brings us eternal life and freedom to enter into His everlasting Kingdom. We must be loving, righteous and obedient to spend all of eternity with Him. 

The Kingdom of God will be righteousness, peace and joy for all who enter into it. All men will know the Lord and have His laws written on their minds and in their hearts, or be expelled to the lake of fire for all time. We will treat one another with dignity and respect, as Christ Himself has taught us. There will be total fairness, justice and equality for all of God’s people. 

The Lord will generously meet all of our needs, both temporal and spiritual. We will lack for no good thing. He will make certain that we are healthy, happy and content for all of eternity. We will be prosperous in all our ways and have strong family relationships for all generations to come. We will live forever in God’s awesome presence, and give Him all of the glory. 

There will be perpetual peace and tranquility in Christ’s everlasting Kingdom. Nothing evil or harmful will ever come near us to defile and contaminate our lives. We will dwell in perfect harmony with all of nature, and be in dominion over the plants and animals like we once were in the Garden of Eden. All of creation will be subject to us, as it was intended from the beginning. 

Luke 12:29-32 “And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”  

The restoration of all things is at hand. The people of God will not always suffer pain and hardship, oppression and exploitation, nor struggle for subsistence in this world. Many who are first now will be last, and the last will be first. The Lord will ultimately show Himself strong on our behalf and gather us to be with Him for all of eternity, as He has intended from the creation itself.  

We should not have any cares in this world, nor concerns for the Kingdom to come. The Lord has a master plan in place that addresses all of our needs. He will make certain that we receive the free gift of eternal life and all of its many benefits. He is jealous for His people and He will not permit us to lack any good thing. We will have unlimited peace and prosperity in His very presence. 

There will be no evil that ever comes near us; we will be in total protection. Nothing will contaminate the serenity of Kingdom life. There will be no strife or division, no iniquity or inequity, no wars and conflict, nor poverty and lack. All of mankind will be at rest, and enjoy life with all of its many blessings. The righteous dead will be raised and we will be with all our family and friends. 

Our bodies will all be changed to put on the imperishable, so that we live forever in good health and vitality. We will see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come. We will share our eternal legacy of righteousness and peace with them, and be respected as the Lord’s very own sons and daughters. We will give our God all the thanks and praise that He deserves.

The Kingdom of God is the spectacular culmination of the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for His people. We will live in a world without end in the very presence of almighty God. Heaven itself is coming to the earth realm, and all things will be united as one in Jesus Christ. He will rule and reign as a righteous King and make absolutely certain that His people are healthy and happy forever.

 

Kingdom Eligibility

 

John 3:5 “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Unless we are born again of water and the Holy Spirit, we cannot enter into Christ’s everlasting Kingdom. Flesh and blood are corruptible, and we will have to put on immortality. Our Lord and Savior has perfect, impeccable standards that He will soon enforce. He will judge all of us by our works in the flesh. If we have believed in Him and been righteous, loving and obedient, we will dwell in His presence forever.  

There is no way to the Father except through the shed Blood of Jesus Christ. If we have repented of all our sins, are sincere believers and confess Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are then reconciled to God. We must also be obedient to all of His commandments, and follow His guidance and direction to us at all times. We should love God and others, as we love ourselves, and be at peace with all men wherever possible.  

We must serve the Lord with joy and gladness in the days to come, and share our faith so that others can be set free. It is not His will that any man perishes for lack of knowledge in the truth. We will be given divine power and authority to preach the Gospel, heal the sick and cast out demons, so that men are no longer in bondage to sin and evil. Our Lord and Savior will generously reward us for all our efforts on His behalf. 

Matthew 7:21-23 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”  

Not all professing Christians will inherit the Kingdom of God. If we do not have a personal relationship with our God and His Son, Jesus Christ we will perish in our ignorance. We cannot give mere lip service to our faith. We must be totally righteous in God’s eyes or we will never enter into His perfect plan for us. He is not impressed by pretended piety or religious activities, nor does He accept that all paths lead to Him. 

The Lord desires that we fellowship intimately with Him, as we were created to do from the very foundation of the world. However, He cannot abide any evil, and if we are unrighteous and rebellious in any way, we will be expelled from His holy presence. He will tolerate no compromise in any of us. Only those who are totally sanctified, loving and obedient to do His will can enter into the Kingdom of God.  

Christ will destroy all evil off the face of the earth when He returns. There will be nothing and no one left to defile God or man in any way. He will root out all wickedness from His Kingdom and punish it in the eternal lake of fire. Satan will be banished to the abyss, so that he no longer tempts or oppresses mankind. Everything will be purified and cleansed, as it was designed to be from the very creation of the earth itself. 

We will have abundant blessings and generous rewards for our service to God and His people. We will inherit the Kingdom of God as our legacy. The Lord will lavish all the wealth of the universe on us. We will have continuous peace and unlimited prosperity. Jesus Christ will make certain that we live forever in total safety and security, and we will experience joy and freedom, health and longevity for all eternity.  

Mark 10:15 “Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.” 

We must sanctify ourselves of all known carnality and selfish ambitions of the soul, if we wish to enter into the Kingdom of God. Nothing defiling will be permitted to taint the beauty of life there. We will have to be innocent and pure as little children, and trust that the Lord will make good on all of His promises to us.

If we are purged of all evil, consecrated to the Lord’s holy purpose and totally obedient, we will be blessed.

We must be humble and sincere in order to see God and spend all of eternity with Him. He will come and take up residence with those who truly love Him and their fellow man. We cannot be proud, arrogant or contentious and hope for His approval. He is not mocked; He will expel all evil from His presence. We should strive to be holy and perfect just as He is holy and perfect, if we wish to dwell with Him for all time.

We will have to crucify our flesh and all of its lusts and forego our selfish, soul ambitions to enter into the presence of almighty God. He will tolerate no remnants of sin, evil or worldliness in us. We must sacrifice all that we are and all that we have to inherit the Kingdom of God. We should serve God and others with real zeal and enthusiasm, and walk just as Jesus Christ Himself walked on this earth until He returns to us.

We will have wonderful blessings if we are worthy to enter into the Kingdom of God. The Lord will make certain that we are healthy, happy and prosperous. We will be reunited with all our loved ones and see our offspring for all generations to come. The Lord will boast of us as His very own sons and daughters, and we will be vindicated before both men and angels. We will live forever in a veritable paradise on the earth.

 

Kingdom Exclusions

 

1Corinthians 15:50 “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.” 

When we were born again, we actually became new creatures in Jesus Christ. Our spirit man was re-created to be like His own in all respects. We laid down our old lives and appropriated the righteousness that His suffering and death bought for us. We were reconciled to God and became His very own sons and daughters. We are a new species on the earth, and those in the world do not even recognize us as such. 

We no longer desire the things that we once did. We are focused on eternal values. We are consecrated and set apart for God’s good pleasure. He can use us to implement His eternal redemption plan for all of mankind because we are willing and obedient. We present our bodies as living sacrifices in service to Him and to His people. We lay down our natural lives in favor of our spirit man who is perfect before God.  

But our bodies will all have to be changed in order for us to enter into the Kingdom of God. When Christ returns, He will change these mortal, corruptible bodies that are vile and susceptible to sin to be perfect and incorruptible. We will put on new, glorious, resurrection forms that are impervious to disease, decay and death. We will be like Him in every way and eligible to dwell in God’s holy presence for all of eternity. 

1Corinthians 6:9-10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

If we are prone to unrighteousness and profligate living in any way, we will be excluded from the Kingdom of God. The Lord cannot abide any evil in His presence, and He will be compelled to reject us if we are disobedient to any of His commandments. Certain sins are particularly offensive to Him, but no sin and lawlessness of any kind will ever be tolerated. 

Sin is sin, and the wages for it are death, pure and simple. The Lord is fair and just above all things, but it will soon be too late for us to repent of all our sinfulness and ask Him for His forgiveness once again. We have to take a long, hard look at all our thoughts, words and behavior to make certain that they line up with the Word and the will of almighty God Himself.  

If we tend towards sin and rebellion, we can expect to spend all of eternity in the lake of fire with the other wrongdoers. There will be no one who is wicked that is ever permitted to enter in to the Kingdom of God. Christ will rule with a rod of iron to prevent any contamination to the Lord and His people. He will protect us from evil and keep us safe and secure forever. 

However, He expects us to do our part and sanctify ourselves of all worldliness now, before it is too late. We should be godly role models to others and our thoughts, words and actions must always be above and beyond reproach. We are ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and all men will be looking to us for our guidance and direction in the critical days ahead.

Galatians 5:19-21 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told [you] in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”  

There will be no fleshly sinfulness permitted in Christ’s Kingdom. Everyone will know God’s laws; they will be written on our minds and in our hearts. We will have to be purged and sanctified from all of our wrongdoing – regardless of what it may be – in order to dwell with God. All men will have to be righteous, loving and obedient or be expelled from the Kingdom for all eternity.

Hatred, wrath and strife will no longer be named among us. There will be no more wars and conflict of any kind. No one need fear for his life and liberty in any way. The Kingdom of God will be peaceful and serene. Its residents will have simple tastes and wholesome, godly values. There will be no drunkenness, sexual sins or worldly lifestyles that contaminate our God or His people.

The Kingdom will be family oriented in its culture. We will dwell with all men – and even angels – in love, peace and unity, as the Lord desires. We will be reunited with all of our friends and loved ones. We will enjoy our children and our children’s children for all generations to come. The Lord will abide with us as our Father, and we will be treated as His very own sons and daughters.

 

Suffering For The Kingdom

 

1Peter 2:19-20 “For this [is] thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory [is it], if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer [for it], ye take it patiently, this [is] acceptable with God.”  

Simply because we have believed in our Lord, Jesus Christ, does not make us immune to tests, trials and tribulation in this world. If anything, we have more aggravation than those around us. We have had our fair share of pain and suffering, despite our strong faith and patience. We will continue to endure much that seems unfair and undeserved, right up until the time of Christ’s return to us.  

However, He will soon level all playing fields once and for all. He has vengeance in His heart and He will destroy all the enemies of His people in one fell swoop. There will be no more injustice, exploitation or oppression in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will right all wrongs and deliver us from all evil.  There will be safety and security, joy and freedom in His very presence for all of eternity. 

Jesus Christ will vindicate us before men and angels. He will boast of us to all creation. We will no longer be scorned, ridiculed or persecuted for our faith. We will share in His very own honor and glory, and be blessed in abundance for our devotion to Him. The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our problems. All men will learn to dwell in love and unity or be expelled for all time.

Matthew 5:10 “Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Although we may have been sorely afflicted for our faith – mocked, ridiculed, scorned and derided by those in the world – our suffering will soon be alleviated. There will be retribution for all of God’s people, and we will be vindicated of all wrong done to us. The Lord will not permit His people to be persecuted indefinitely. He will ultimately come against all who trouble us. 

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will soon return to this world. He will show Himself strong on our behalf and deal with all those who try to injure us in any way. Satan and all of his minions will be banished to the bottomless pit; all wrongdoers will be cast into the eternal lake of fire. There will be no one that dares to harm us ever again. We will be fully protected from evil. 

We will shine with the light of God’s glory when heaven comes to the earth. The Lord will lift us up and boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. Our names will soon be a praise in this world, and we will have an eternal legacy for our righteousness. The Kingdom of God will be given to Jesus Christ and all His saints who have been faithful to serve Him. 

The Lord will appoint us as kings and priests and we will even judge both men and angels. We will receive the heathen and the uttermost parts of the earth as our inheritance. Christ will rule and reign as a righteous King with fairness and justice for all. We will be permitted to govern with Him over all the nations of the world. We will teach all men how to dwell in love, peace and unity.

James 5:7-8 “Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.”  

We must wait patiently for the return of Jesus Christ. We will reap all that we have sown into His eternal redemption plan. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and vindicate all wrongs done to us. Whatever we have lost or had stolen from us will be restored. The Lord will generously recompense us for all of our efforts on His behalf, now and in the Kingdom to come.  

Christ will enforce Kingdom principles of fairness, righteousness and justice in the government of God on this earth. His disciples will no longer be persecuted in any fashion; we will have just retribution for all that has been inflicted on us. We are the head and not the tail; we will be glorified in our Lord and Savior for all time. Jesus is committed to meet the needs of all His people. 

He will make certain that we are protected from evil, and that nothing harms us in any way. We will have perpetual safety and security in the Kingdom of God. There will be no contention to mar the peace and unity that we share with one another. All men will be righteous or be expelled from our presence. The Lord will be a loving Father, and boast of His children to all creation. 

There will be no good thing that we lack. Our God will lavish us with all temporal and spiritual blessings. We will live forever in good health and vitality. We will see our offspring for all generations to come and build homes for our large families. We will have dominion over all of nature, as we once did in the Garden of Eden. The Kingdom of God will be a literal paradise for all of us.

 

Worthy Of The Kingdom

 

1Thessalonians 2:12 “That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.” 

Not everyone who professes to believe in Jesus Christ will enter into the Kingdom of God. We must make certain that we guard our righteousness at all times and that we are loving and obedient, as we have been taught. We must not criticize and condemn others, nor can we be proud and arrogant. We cannot be in strife and division and hope to please God either. 

We should be totally sanctified and consecrated to the Lord, or we could be on the outside looking in for all of eternity. We have to be willing to meekly serve others as we are called to do. We should share our faith and minister to their needs, just as Christ Himself did when He walked the earth. We cannot be selfish and worldly or we will be expelled from the Kingdom.  

The fate of all mankind rests with us. We must preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, so that others can be saved to eternal life, as we have been. We should baptize them in Christ’s name and deliver them from their bondage to sin and evil. We should heal them of all their afflictions, so that they feel the love, mercy and compassion of almighty God Himself.  

If we are faithful to discharge all of our duties humbly and sincerely in the critical days that lie ahead, the Lord will generously reward us. He will boast of us to all creation. We will be appointed kings and priests of God and judge both men and angels. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, and rule and reign with Him over all of the nations of the world.

Matthew 20:16 “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.”  

Many are called into the Kingdom of God, but not all will enter into it. Those who are first could be last because of their lack of love and obedience. Some are rebellious and so steeped in sin and evil that they will never find their way. Others are pre-occupied with the things of this world and are selfish and materialistic. Still others are ignorant of the truth and need to be converted and born again. 

It is not the Lord’s desire that any man perish. He is infinitely patient with us, but time is running out. We must make the all-important decision to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ and appropriate His righteousness, as our very own. We can be saved to eternal life if we are truly repentant and have sincere faith. We need not be condemned with those in the world; salvation is available to each and every one of us. 

We will not inherit the Kingdom of God unless we are totally righteous, loving and obedient. Ours is not a God of compromise. Our future is dependent upon our willingness to follow all of the commandments and to love God and others. We cannot be both worldly and spiritually minded. We will have to sacrifice all that we are and all that we have, to spend eternity in the very presence of our awesome God.  

However, it will be well worth all of our efforts. The Kingdom of God will bring the restoration of all things for God’s people. We will have endless peace and unlimited prosperity. The Lord will be a loving Father to us and meet all of our needs even before we ask Him. We will lack for no good thing – spiritual or temporal. We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feasts with joy in our hearts. 

Luke 9:62 “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

We cannot permit fear, doubt and unbelief to interfere with our inheritance. We must believe and trust that God will make good on all of His promises to us. We will live in a world without end and be blessed with all the vast resources of the universe if we remain in covenant with Him. We dare not go back to the lives we once had or we will be disqualified from entering into the Kingdom of God. 

Flesh and blood will never enter into Christ’s Kingdom. We will have to divest ourselves of all carnality and selfish, soul ambitions, and put our spirit man in ascendancy to our bodies and souls. We must renounce all of our sinfulness and remain continually righteous and obedient. We cannot neglect our love for God or for our fellow man. We should be at peace with God and with others. 

We must serve the Lord with joy and enthusiasm, and minister to others, as we would wish them to do to us. We should share our faith with power and conviction and be righteous role models for all of mankind. We have divine destinies that should be fulfilled before heaven will be brought to this earth. We ought to pick up right where Christ left off, and consummate His eternal redemption plan. 

All world governments have to be reorganized to adhere to Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all mankind. We will challenge their leaders to promote peace and unity among their people and with the other nations of the world. Plants and animals will soon be in harmony; we will control the climate and reverse all the effects of pollution. We will bring order and stability to all creation.  

Hebrews 12:28-29 “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God [is] a consuming fire.”

In the days ahead, we will be carefully scrutinized by both God and man. Our very thoughts, words and behavior will all have to be above and beyond reproach. We are ambassadors for Jesus Christ and His Kingdom on this earth, and we must walk as He walked. We should be humble servants of others and godly in all our ways. We cannot ever compromise our love, righteousness and obedience.

We must have a healthy fear of the Lord and show Him all the deference and respect that He deserves. He can and will reject us for any rebellion that we demonstrate. We must obey all of His commandments and follow all His guidance and direction. He wants to partner with us, so that we can be totally successful in all that we are called to do on His behalf to usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God. 

The entire world will be impacted by our efforts. We will challenge all of mankind to adhere to Christ’s Gospel of peace or risk being destroyed in the wrath of His coming. We will prepare the hearts of all men, women and children who are receptive to repent, be saved and born again. We will baptize countless numbers in Christ’s name, and gather in the full, end-time harvest of souls that is required.  

We will heal the sick of all their afflictions, so that they can enter the Kingdom of God healthy and whole. We will cast out demons and deliver many from their bondage to sin and evil. We will even raise the dead back to life again, so that they can be reunited with all their loved ones. We will overcome all evil with good, and take back the entire earth for our Lord, Jesus Christ, as we are destined to do.

 

Least And Greatest In The Kingdom

 

Luke 9:46-48 “Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.”

The Lord is not fooled or easily impressed. He does not look on the surface and evaluate a man. It’s the inner man of the heart that concerns Him. He desires that we be humble, sincere and contrite if we wish to enter into His presence for all of eternity. He will exalt us if we are self-abasing, and cast down the proud and arrogant among us. He will reject all those who are disobedient and unloving.  

If we are pure, innocent and trusting as little children, we will receive His unequivocal love and unmerited favor. We will be found suitable to enter into the Kingdom of God and inherit all of its many blessings. The Lord will be a devoted Father to us and provide all of our needs in abundance. He will give us peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom forever. 

We will have generous rewards for our faithfulness. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory if we have been humble and sincere servants of God and His people. He will appoint us as kings and priests, and we will rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world. Our names will soon be a praise on the earth and men will be grateful for our role in their redemptive process.  

Matthew 5:19 “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” 

If we have been faithful to preach the unadulterated Word of God and teach others to obey all of the commandments, we will be honored and glorified in the Kingdom of God. There is no way that anyone can be saved without hearing the Gospel and repenting of all known sin. We must encourage men, women and children all over the earth to be converted, saved and baptized in Jesus’ name.

We must learn to walk in love and righteousness and dwell in peace and unity with one another. We cannot compromise any of the Lord’s moral absolutes and be found acceptable in His eyes. He is adamant that we obey Him at all times and teach others to do the same. The Kingdom of God is based on righteous and just principles. There must be peace, order and stability in this world for it to survive.

It will be critical that we serve as godly role models to others in the critical days that lie ahead. They will imitate our faith, love and obedience. If we are diligent to lead the way into the Kingdom, as we are destined to do, we will receive generous rewards for our efforts. We will be appointed kings and priests of God; judge both men and angels; and rule and reign with Christ for all eternity.

John 12:26 “If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will [my] Father honour.” 

If we wish to be major players in the Kingdom of God some day soon, we will have to take up our cross daily and follow Christ in all that we think, say and do. He came to preach the Gospel of peace and deliver men from bondage to sin. We should do likewise, if we wish to imitate our Lord and Savior. There are many souls that have to be converted, saved and baptized before we can enter into the Kingdom of God. 

We should be good role models and persuade all men, women and children in the truth, so that they can inherit eternal life and be set free as we are. We will work miracles, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name and draw all men to our God. We will demonstrate His deep, abiding love, mercy and compassion as we heal the sick of all their afflictions; cast out demons of all kinds; and even raise the dead back to life once again.  

The Kingdom of God will be our eternal legacy for righteousness and godliness. The Lord will generously reward us for our faithful service to Him and to others. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and boast of us to all creation. We will judge both men and angels, as kings and priests of God. We will receive the heathen and the uttermost parts of the earth as our inheritance, and rule and reign with Christ. 

The Lord will not forget our unselfish service to Him and to His people. He will honor us for all of eternity. The Kingdom of God will be our legacy for righteousness and obedience. We will be joint-heirs with Jesus to all of its many benefits. We will dwell in perpetual peace and prosperity and our names will be a praise on the earth for all generations to come. The Lord will commune with us intimately for all time.

Matthew 20:26-28 “But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

The key to being great in the Kingdom of God is humble service to the Lord and to others. If we are willing to abase ourselves and become servants, just as Christ did when He walked the earth, we will one day be exalted. We are not above our Master. He came to minister to all of mankind and we should do the same. We must preach the Gospel of the Kingdom with joy and enthusiasm. There are many who will be saved as a result of our evangelistic efforts. 

We should also lay hands on the sick and work miracles of healing in Jesus’ name. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk through our efforts. We have been given divine power and authority to tear down all demonic strongholds and cast out devils, so that men can be set free from oppression and bondage to sin and evil. We can even overcome death and raise the dead back to life once again, so they can enter into the Kingdom of God with us.  

Nothing will be impossible to us if we serve the Lord, as we should. We will challenge all of the world governments and make certain that they are fair and just to their people. We will eliminate war, violence and conflict on this earth, and enforce Kingdom principles of peace and unity among men. We will speak to all creation and it will be in perfect harmony with man, as it once was in the Garden of Eden. We will bring order and stability to this whole world.

 

The Kingdom Comes In Power And Glory

 

Matthew 11:12 “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” 

There is a cosmic battle of good vs. evil that is currently being fought in the second heaven. We feel the effects here on the earth. Satan and all his minions are at war with the heavenly hosts. Christ and His Body are doing spiritual warfare that will impact all of creation. We will ultimately overcome all evil with good, and take back the entire world for the Kingdom of God.  

The devil knows that his time is short and he will do everything possible to oppress us and impede the coming of heaven to the earth. However, he is already a defeated foe. He is no match for Jesus Christ. Our Lord and Savior stripped him of all his power and authority on Calvary and returned dominion back to men. We are more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us. 

We have been given divine power and authority to rule and reign with Jesus in this world and in the everlasting Kingdom to come. We are kings and priests of God, and we should minister to His people with mercy and compassion. We must show them that all things are possible with God. We will exercise our authority over the enemy and establish peace, order and stability. 

All human governments and their economic systems will line up with godly principles of fairness, equality and justice for all. The Kingdom of God will exclude all evil and absorb all the nations of the world into its own peaceful, political and social infrastructure. Wrongdoers will be stripped of their power to oppress and exploit others. Soon all mankind will be treated with dignity and respect.

Acts 2:17-21 “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

We are about to see a glory outbreak that will occur throughout the whole world. There will be dramatic and disturbing signs in the heavens and on the earth to herald the second coming of Jesus Christ. We will see cosmic events that shake things up and natural catastrophes abound everywhere. Men’s hearts will fail them for fear, and they will cry out to our God for salvation. 

The Day of the Lord is rapidly approaching and time is running short for men to repent of their sins. We will be very busy preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom and baptizing men, women and children in Jesus’ name. The Lord will pour out His Holy Spirit on all believers and we will prophesy and experience many revelatory dreams and visions of what is to come on the earth. 

The people of God will soon be lights in a very dark place. We will see multitudes converted, because of all the miraculous signs and wonders that manifest around us. We will have to calm people down, give them hope for their future and see that they are born again. We will heal all those who are afflicted; deliver them from bondage to sin; and even raise the dead back to life.  

The Lord will demonstrate His deep, abiding love, mercy and compassion for mankind through us. We will minister to others with warmth and affection, intercede for them and exhort them in Christ’s name. All those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be saved. No righteous person will ever be denied the gift of eternal life or entry into the Kingdom of God. 

1Corinthians 4:20 “For the kingdom of God [is] not in word, but in power.”

The sons and daughters of almighty God are being revealed in a big way in these last days. We have divine destinies that must be fulfilled before heaven is brought to the earth. We have been called to usher in the Kingdom of God. We will rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing; demonstrate the power and glory of God all over this world; and impact all of mankind, as we are ordained to do.  

We will challenge all world governments to reorganize themselves according to Kingdom principles of fairness, equality and justice. We will eliminate all wars, conflict, violence and bloodshed on the earth once and for all. There will soon be peace and unity in all of our relationships with others. We will also take control of the world economy, so that there is no more poverty and lack.  

Jesus Christ will return with all of His angels to receive His everlasting Kingdom from us. Those who are wicked will be destroyed in the wrath of His coming. He will eradicate all evil off the face of the earth. Satan and all his minions will be bound in the bottomless pit. There will be no more iniquity or inequity in this world. All God’s people will be treated with the respect that they deserve.  

The Lord will rule with a rod of iron to make certain that no evil or defilement comes anywhere near us. We will be in total protection in His Kingdom. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom in His presence. Nothing will ever contaminate the order and stability of our lives. Our heavenly Father will soon come and dwell with us on this earth for all eternity. 

Matthew 16:19 “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

The Body of Christ will take back the earth and everything in it for the Kingdom of God. The world will never end, but it will line up with godly principles that positively affect all of mankind. There will be peace and unity established in all of our affairs. We will eliminate all wars and conflict, violence and bloodshed off the face of the earth, as we are destined to do. 

The words that we speak will destroy all demonic strongholds and unleash God’s power and glory in this world. We will bind the operations of Satan and all his minions and loose blessings for the entire human race. We will overcome all evil with good and prepare the earth for heaven to be ushered in with the Kingdom of God, so Jesus Christ can return to rule and reign.  

We will speak to all of creation and it will line up with the express will of almighty God. There will be harmony in the plant and animal kingdoms. Man will be in dominion over all the creatures on the earth once again. We will command order and stability in nature. The climate will be regulated, so there are no more natural disasters that threaten loss of lives and property. 

All things will be possible to us, if we are willing and obedient. We will decree the Word and the will of almighty God Himself to all of mankind. He will back us up in all that we say and do on His behalf. We will see heaven manifest on the earth during our lifetime, if we are diligent and persistent in all our efforts to serve the Lord in implementing His eternal redemption plan.

 

An Everlasting Kingdom

 

Psalm 145:13 “Thy kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion [endureth] throughout all generations.”

The Kingdom of God has been the subject of discussion for thousands of years. Wise men prophesied regarding it centuries before Jesus Christ ever came on the scene. He preached the Gospel of the Kingdom when He came to this earth and told His followers to expect it to appear at any time. Those of us who believe that Christ is the Son of God know, beyond all doubt, that it will revolutionize the entire world.  

It will be the culmination of the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. Heaven itself is actually coming to the earth realm. If we are righteous, loving and obedient, we will enter into it with joy and gladness in our hearts. It will be our abode for all of eternity. The Lord will come and dwell with us and there will be only peace, love and unity among men. No sin and evil will ever taint its perfection. 

Jesus Christ will rule and reign as a benevolent King for all generations to come. He will enforce Kingdom principles of righteousness, fairness and justice. He will share His honor and glory with all those who have faithfully served Him and His people. We will be appointed kings and priests of God, and even judge both men and angels. We will also receive the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth.

Revelation 11:15 “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” 

The Kingdom of God will make all earthly kingdoms pale in comparison. It will absorb all human governments into its own political infrastructure and be worldwide. Righteous men, women and children from every race, tongue and nation of the world will populate it. All the dead in Christ will be raised back to life again, judged according to their works in the flesh and then rewarded with eternal life. 

The wicked will vanish off the face of the earth forever, and the devil will be bound in the bottomless pit. There will be no more oppression and exploitation of God’s people. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and vindicate all wrongs that were done to us. He will recompense us for all that we have lost or had stolen, and make absolutely certain that no evil ever harms and defiles us in any way.  

All of mankind will dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters or be banished from the Kingdom to the lake of fire. Jesus Christ will rule and reign as a righteous King for all of eternity. There will be no end to His Kingdom on the earth. We will all receive new, glorious, resurrection bodies that are healthy and free of disease and decay. We will live forever in the presence of almighty God Himself.  

The Lord will meet all of our needs in abundance. We will share in all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. There will be no poverty and lack, no wars or conflict of any kind. Men will all know the Lord – from the least to the greatest of us. His laws will be written on our minds and in our hearts. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and give Him all the praise and thanks that He deserves.

Daniel 7:13-14 “I saw in the night visions, and, behold, [one] like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom [that] which shall not be destroyed.”

The Kingdom of God is Christ’s eternal inheritance for His unselfish service to all of mankind. He will rule and reign with a rod of iron to make certain that nothing evil ever harms us or contaminates our lives. We will have perpetual peace and prosperity, total safety and security, never-ending joy and freedom in His presence. All men will be righteous and loving, as He has taught us. 

Christ’s Kingdom will absorb all world governments into its own fair and just, political infrastructure. He will be King over the entire earth and all of creation. His will be an everlasting dominion; we will live in a peaceful, idyllic world without end, as we have been promised. Nothing will ever disturb the serenity of Kingdom life. All of us will be blessed far beyond our expectations.  

Jesus Christ will change our mortal bodies to be like His very own and we will live forever in paradise on the earth. There will be no pain and suffering of any kind. He will blot all that from our memories. We will see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come. All men will know the Lord intimately. He will be a God and a Father to us, as He always desired.

 

Joint-Heirs To The Kingdom

 

Colossians 1:12-14 “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins:”  

We are blessed to be believers in the Lord, Jesus Christ. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the everlasting Kingdom of God on the earth. All our sins have been forgiven us, and we are covered by His precious Blood. We are joint-heirs with Jesus and we have inherited great and precious promises for our love, righteousness and obedience.  

We can walk in the Kingdom way of life now, even before Christ returns to us. If we are diligent to follow all of the commandments and dwell in love, peace and unity with others, the Lord will be with us in all of our affairs. We will demonstrate the mercy and compassion of almighty God Himself to all mankind, and be godly role models to others in all that we think, say and do. 

We will rise up in the kingly and priestly anointing that has been given to us and take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. All world governments will be reorganized to line up with principles of fairness and justice. There will be no more poverty and lack, oppression or exploitation. All of creation will soon be stable and orderly, and subject to our dominion once again. 

We will have endless peace and unlimited prosperity in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will change our mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that are impervious to disease, decay and death. We will dwell forever in the presence of almighty God Himself. There will be nothing that harms us in any way; we will experience safety and security, joy and freedom. 

We will all be loving and righteous; the Lord will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters. He will meet all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him. The dead in Christ will be raised back to life once again. We will be reunited with all our family and friends. We will enjoy the fellowship of our children and our children’s children for all generations to come.  

Daniel 7:27 “And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.”

If we truly believe in Jesus Christ and all that He did for us, we are joint-heirs with Him to all the promises of God. We share in an everlasting covenant of peace with our Creator and His beloved Son. He will bless us now and in the Kingdom to come. All that we must do is follow His commandments, walk in love and serve His people, as he has specifically called us to do in the critical days that lie ahead of us. 

We will have an eternal legacy for our righteousness and obedience. We will receive eternal life and all of its many benefits in Christ’s everlasting Kingdom. No man or devil will ever be able to steal our birthright. The Lord will make certain that we are safe and secure, healthy, happy and prosperous. He will meet all of our needs for all eternity. There is no good thing that our God will withhold from His people. 

All world governments will be absorbed into the Kingdom of God. Christ will be a just King over all of creation. There will be no more wars, violence and bloodshed. He will tolerate no contention, strife or division in any of us. All evil will be banished to the lake of fire, and Satan and all his minions will be cast into the bottomless pit, so that they can no longer oppress us or hold us in bondage of any kind.  

Those of us who have faithfully served the Lord and His people will be generously rewarded. He will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, and our names will be a praise on the earth. We will judge both men and angels, and be appointed kings and priests of God. We will rule and reign with Christ Himself over all the nations of the world.

Ephesians 2:4-7 “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”

Believers are privileged to know the truth. It is only by our faith in Jesus Christ that we are saved to eternal life and inherit all the many benefits of the Kingdom of God. When we were born again in our spirit man, we actually became new creatures in Him. All things became possible to us. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus and we are joint-heirs with Him to all the promises of righteousness.  

The Lord has conferred honor and glory on us. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. We will be key players in His everlasting Kingdom if we are faithful to serve Him now. He will appoint us as kings and priests and we will judge both men and angels. We will be given the heathen for our inheritance, and rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world. 

All men will give us thanks and praise for our role in the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for His people. Our names will be a praise on the earth, and the Kingdom of God will be our eternal legacy. The Lord will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. We will have an intimate relationship with Him, as He desires. He will meet all of our basic needs and lavish us with eternal blessings. 

There is no good thing that we will lack, either temporal or spiritual. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom forever. All men will dwell in love and unity as a result of our efforts. They will all know the Lord, and worship Him in Spirit and in truth. The Kingdom of God will be idyllic – the perfect habitat for both God and man to enjoy for all of eternity.

 

Blessings In The Kingdom

 

Jeremiah 31:34 “And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

The Kingdom of God is reserved for Christ and His saints who have followed Him faithfully. Not all men will be able to enter in and receive the blessings of eternal life. Unless we repent of all our sins; believe in Jesus; walk in love and obey all of the commandments; we will be on the outside looking in for all of eternity. No one who is wicked, rebellious and committed to evil will ever enter into God’s presence. 

We will all finally know the Lord – from the least to the greatest of us. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts. He will not even remember our former sinfulness. He will blot that from His memory. We will be in an intimate relationship with Him that only the righteous can enjoy. He wants to be a Father to each and every one of us, and He will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters.  

There will never be a separation between God and man ever again; we will be together forever more. The Lord will supply all of our needs in abundance. He will lavish us with all the blessings that the entire universe has to offer. The Kingdom will be rich in the bounty of the earth, and we will be astounded at its beauty. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom. 

We can only imagine how wonderful life will be in the presence of our awesome God. He has destined us to be with Him in a literal paradise. We will live forever in heaven on the earth and see our offspring for all generations to come. They will be blessed and multiplied according to God’s eternal covenant of peace with us. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and celebrate all His sabbaths and perpetual feasts. 

1Corinthians 2:9 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”  

Very soon now, heaven itself will come to the earth realm and the Lord will gather us into His everlasting Kingdom for all of eternity. He will bestow all the vast resources of the entire universe on us. We will be His people who are called by His holy name, and be blessed beyond our wildest imaginings. There is no good thing – temporal or spiritual – that the Lord will ever withhold from us. 

Our heavenly Father will come and take up residence with us for all time. Christ will wreak vengeance on all of our enemies and protect us from all evil. Nothing will contaminate the peace and serenity of Kingdom life. We will be given new, glorious, resurrection bodies that are impervious to disease, decay and death. We will receive the gift of eternal life and all of its many benefits. 

Men will dwell in love and unity with one another as brothers. We will see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come. We will build beautiful homes to lodge our large families, and grow crops for our food. Life will be simple and basic, yet all of our needs will be met in abundance, even before we ask. We will worship our God in Spirit and in truth, as He so desires. 

The Lord will be the focal point of our lives and we will be the center of His attention. We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days with joy in our hearts. He is a great and awesome God and we owe Him all the praise, honor and thanksgiving that He deserves. Christ will rule and reign as a righteous King, and every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that He is Lord over all creation.

Isaiah 60:19 “The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.” 

The Kingdom of God will make all of our earthly experiences pale in comparison. It will be the spectacular culmination of the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for His people. The world itself will never end, but it will be renovated and refurbished according to the express will of almighty God. The glory of the Lord Himself will be our eternal light.  

We will no longer be subject to the days and seasons that we once knew. The Kingdom of God will have no confines of time and space, as we currently know them. It will be everlasting peace and light. Heaven itself is coming to the earth realm and we will all dwell in paradise once again, just as we were meant to do from the very foundation of the world. 

The Lord will provide us with all that we need to be perpetually happy, healthy and content. He will be a personal God to us, and we will be the people who are called by His holy name. He will treat us as His very own sons and daughters. He will provide all of our needs, as any loving and generous Father would do; we will never lack for any good thing. 

Isaiah 61:6-7 “But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: [men] shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. For your shame [ye shall have] double; and [for] confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.”

We will no longer be ridiculed or scorned for our faith in almighty God. He will recompense us with eternal praise. If we have served the Lord and His people, we will be appointed kings and priests of God. We will judge both men and angels. We will inherit the heathen and the uttermost parts of the earth. Christ will share His honor and glory with us; we will rule and reign with Him over all nations of the world. 

We will have all of our needs met in abundance in the everlasting Kingdom of God. We will all share equally in the vast resources that the entire universe has to offer us. There will be no more poverty and lack; the Lord will make certain that we have all that we require to be perpetually healthy, happy and prosperous. The Kingdom will be more beautiful and bountiful than anything we could ever imagine. 

We will no longer remember any of the pain and suffering that we have experienced. The Lord will mercifully blot that from our memories. We will be reunited with all of our deceased loved ones. Our bodies will all be changed into new, glorious, resurrection forms that are impervious to disease and death. The Kingdom of God will level all playing fields and restore everything that we have lost or had stolen.  

We will experience only peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom for all of eternity. All men will know the Lord and His way of doing things. We will no longer have to teach them; they will all be righteous and loving. We will dwell together as brothers and sisters, and rejoice in all that the Lord has done for us. He will be the focal point of our attention, and we will worship Him in Spirit and in truth.
