Preface: 

2Timothy 4:18 “And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve [me] unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen.”  

Our Creator is vexed by what is happening in this world today.  Evil men have transgressed both natural and spiritual laws and turned their backs on Him.  They have sold their souls to the devil and cause all sorts of pain and suffering for God’s people.  The righteous are attacked and persecuted at every turn.  We are tempted and taunted, tried and tested in everything that we think, say and do. 

There is a cosmic battle of good vs. evil that is raging everywhere.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to follow the Lord with all of the darkness and deception that surround us.  We are assailed on all fronts and we desperately need God’s help to set matters straight for all time.  We must get back to basics and seek His face as never before, in order to survive the critical days that lie ahead of us.   

Almighty God will sovereignly move to correct the imbalance that currently exists and restore peace, order and stability to our lives, as He originally intended.  He will intervene in our affairs and usher in His everlasting Kingdom to this earth.  He will not permit lawlessness and rebellion in any of His creatures.  He will soon judge both men and angels and execute fairness and justice for all.   

The Lord will ultimately rid this planet of all its wickedness and evil and gather His beloved children to Himself as He promised.  All men will learn to be righteous, loving and obedient or be forever punished in the unquenchable lake of fire.  The Lord will banish all of His enemies from His holy presence, and deliver the faithful from anything that threatens to harm or contaminate them in any way. 

Psalm 86:15 “But thou, O Lord, [art] a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.”   

God has not abandoned mankind in our sin and rebellion.  He is patient and longsuffering, yet mighty and powerful, and He longs for intimate fellowship with the human race.  He is waiting for just the right time to manifest His presence to the world.  It is critical that He intervene in our affairs before we totally self-destruct.  He will soon demonstrate His inimitable power and glory for all eyes to see. 

He will move through a people who are called by His holy name and sanctified in the truth.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and conviction.  We will make salvation available to every man, woman and child in the critical days to come.  Miracles, signs and wonders will abound.  The Lord will get our full attention and offer us one last chance to be redeemed from all of our sinfulness.  

There is a point of no return that we are rapidly approaching that will change the fate of mankind for all of eternity.  All signs point to the indisputable fact that our God is preparing to show Himself strong, and bring a major shakeup to His creation.  He will eradicate all evil off the face of the earth and cleanse it of defilement, so that heaven itself can be brought here in the everlasting Kingdom of God.  

Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find [me], when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”   

Almighty God is unveiling Himself to mankind as never before.  He is showing us His face – His true nature of love, mercy and compassion.  He wants us to turn from the sin, evil and moral decadence that threaten to overtake us in these last days and step into the wonderful plans that He has for our future.  It is His heart’s desire to be in an intimate relationship with the entire human race as He originally intended from the creation itself.  The Lord wants to gather us into the everlasting Kingdom of God. 

Heaven itself is coming to this earth realm and we have to prepare ourselves to enter in.  We cannot look back to the declining world system that has miserably failed us and embrace our future at the same time.  Things have gone from bad to worse, and we require divine intervention if we are to prevail in the days to come.  If we have repented of all our sins and accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we have a bright and promising future ahead of us that no man or devil will ever be able to steal. 

God’s people can look forward to eternal life with all of its many benefits.  We will have unlimited blessings and generous rewards.  The Lord will blot out all our memories of pain and suffering.  He will take vengeance on all our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us.  Peace and prosperity will be our lot.  Safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom are all part of what God has planned.  He will actually come and dwell with us, and we will never be separated from Him ever again. 

 

Introduction: 

Psalm 62:5-7 “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation [is] from him.  He only [is] my rock and my salvation: [he is] my defence; I shall not be moved. In God [is] my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, [and] my refuge, [is] in God.” 

The world as we know it today has become an extremely hostile environment to both God and man.  Moral decadence and depravity of all sorts have interfered with all the good that the Lord originally intended for His people.  We have missed the mark and compromised our moral standards, to the point that we are on the brink of total destruction for our wicked ways.  We must get a grip and wake up before it is too late. 

We cannot succumb to the world system with all of its many snares that lead us into wickedness and evil.  That will only cause us to experience personal defeat and rob us of our blessings.  The world, as we know it, will soon pass away and be replaced with heaven on this earth for all those who are faithful.  If we are loving, righteous and obedient we will see God and dwell with Him for all of eternity as He intends for us. 

The Lord wants to manifest Himself to His people in these last days as never before.  His heart’s desire is to permanently reconcile with mankind and gather us to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God.  He has seen all the pain and suffering that we have endured and He wants to deliver us from it.  He is anxious to comfort and rescue us from the darkness and defilement that threaten to overtake us in these last days. 

He will soon reveal Himself in all of His power and glory and make His presence known to all of creation.  Our part is to prepare ourselves to meet Him.  We must abandon carnality and selfishness of the soul, and cleanse ourselves of all known sin.  God is holy and perfect and He expects us to sanctify ourselves, so that we can actually dwell with Him.  If we do our part, He is faithful to make good on all of His promises to us. 

2Corinthians 4:6 “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”   

There is a light at the end of the tunnel in the person of one Jesus Christ.  He is our only hope for total redemption from all of our iniquity and transgression.  Unless we repent from the heart and realize what He accomplished on our behalf, we are doomed.  God sent His only beloved Son to this earth realm to be the atonement for the sins of all mankind.  Christ suffered and died, so that we could be set free. 

He took on all of our sins, as if they were His very own, and then paid the penalty of death for them.  He served as our sacrificial substitute and redeemed us from the curse of the law.  Through Him we have inherited eternal life and we have hope and confidence for our future.  We need not be destroyed by our sin nature.  We are covered by His Blood and we can appropriate His perfect righteousness by faith. 

We have become brand new creatures in Christ.  We are no longer at enmity with almighty God, nor subject to His terrible wrath.  We have become His sons and daughters, joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God.  We should embrace our divine destinies.  If we do, the Lord will imbue us with His very own power and authority, so that we can be His goodwill ambassadors to the rest of mankind. 

Psalm 84:11-12 “For the LORD God [is] a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good [thing] will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed [is] the man that trusteth in thee.”

Our Lord and Savior came so that we might have life in abundance to the overflow.  He wants to bless us and spend all of eternity with His people.  There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us if we walk in His ways.  However, we must be obedient to do everything that God requests of us and cultivate a genuine love for Him and for others, so that we are worthy to enter into His holy presence. 

We will take up Christ’s ministry where He left off, and spread the Gospel as the Lord arranges our contacts.  We will make salvation available to every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation in this world.  We will baptize countless numbers in Jesus’ name and heal them of all afflictions.  The Lord will work through us to cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again.  

The Kingdom of God will manifest right before our very eyes, even before Jesus Christ returns to us.  The Lord will have us establish peace, order and stability on this earth.  We will eliminate all wars, violence and conflict from our affairs.  We will eradicate all poverty and lack and destroy the yokes of bondage that keep men subject to the exploitation of others.  Social injustice will soon become a thing of the past. 

The people of God will restore all of nature to its original beauty and balance.  We will cleanse the earth of all its defilement and bring total harmony to all plants and animals.  We will even regulate the climate so that it is always temperate and predictable.  The adverse effects of all forms of pollution will be canceled.  There will be no more natural catastrophes that ever bring death and destruction in their wake. 

Almighty God will be pleased with us and usher heaven itself into this earth realm, so that we can be with Him for all of eternity.  He will supply all of our needs in abundance and boast of us to all of creation as His sons and daughtersis sons and daughters.  He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and deliver us from all evil.  We will bask in the Lord’s glory and enjoy peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom.

Chapter 1 - Exalted Above All Creation

Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”  

We have a great and awesome God who created all things in His inherent wisdom and might to give Himself pleasure and to provide Himself with companionship.  Both the heavens and the earth were manifested when He spoke light and life to them.  There is nothing that was made that He did not intend.  The entire universe resulted from His brilliant design and magnificent display of infinite power and glory.    

The cosmos reflects the Lord’s engineering ability and fathomless imagination.  Our earth is but a small speck of teeming life compared to the other planets and stars that exist ad infinitum.  From the birds in the air to the fish in the sea, everything here is both beautiful and functional.  All of nature serves as a dramatic work of art, and an extravagant display of God’s love for all things that are both wholesome and beneficial. 

Every living creature that is in existence today has a specific purpose.  Man was formed in God’s very own image and likeness to provide Him with intimate fellowship.  Plants and animals were designed to provide man with sustenance.  Without a doubt, the Lord had a master plan that outshines anything that we could ever devise as mere human beings.  All life forms are interconnected and intended to be self-perpetuating. 

There is a perfect blueprint in place for the entire creation that should not be tampered with, for fear of adverse results.  Almighty God has established specific rules and regulations, boundaries and limits, for a very practical reason.  He knows what is best for every creature and what is required to keep the universe running as it was designed.  His genius has both originated all living things and continues to support them.  

Isaiah 45:18 “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I [am] the LORD; and [there is] none else.” 

Everything that exists is sustained by our awesome God.  He always makes certain that His handiwork is intact and all systems are operating efficiently.  However, man has grossly interfered with God’s plans and disturbed the perfect balance that should exist in our world.  In our greed and ignorance, we have upset the total equilibrium that He engineered by transgressing natural and spiritual laws that govern our existence.   

We have turned our back on our Creator and exalted the creation instead.  Man has exceeded his authority by attempting to take control of his own fate.  We have failed miserably in that area, and insulted our God in the process.  He desires to provide us with all good things, but we are insatiable and ungrateful.  Instead of being wise stewards of our environment, we have drained it of its valuable assets and left it damaged.  

Man was created to dwell in paradise for all time, but traded that privilege for a sentence to hard labor with his rebellion in the Garden of Eden.  Each of us has inherited the iniquity of our forefathers and we have a tendency to sin and transgression that has doomed us to continual failure over the past generations.  We have contaminated everything that we touch, and defiled all that is beautiful and wholesome in our world.  

We must defer to God’s infinite wisdom and learn to walk in His ways.  We cannot persist in doing our own thing and hope to see positive results in our lives.  We have to step back and objectively evaluate what we are doing.  We should seek almighty God and receive specific instruction from Him for all that we think, say and do.  He wants us to imitate Him so that we can be successful in everything that we pursue. 

This world was created to be inhabited by mankind for all time.  All that we need has been made available to us for our use.  There is absolutely no reason why there should be anyone who suffers lack.  This planet is rich in natural resources that are designed to sustain all forms of life indefinitely.  We must learn to share what we have with one another and protect and preserve all the beauty and bounty that we have been given.  

Romans 9:22 “[What] if God, willing to shew [his] wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,” 

However, human beings are proud and arrogant, stubborn and contentious, disobedient and ungrateful.  We hate one another without cause.  We compete for more power and material possessions, and introduce wars, violence and conflict to all of our affairs.  We initiate strife and division in our relationships and turn our backs on God.  We make idols of everything imaginable. We lie, steal and covet one another’s blessings. 

We have transgressed natural and spiritual laws and violated God’s trust in us as faithful stewards of our environment.  We inadvertently destroy the earth that we call “home” and show little regard for others.  We are wicked and evil, and we should be condemned for all of our disobedience.  However the Lord is extremely patient with us, ever merciful and compassionate to the human condition, despite our rebellion. 

He knows that we are steeped in sin and darkness, deceived by Satan, the very enemy of our souls.  He is revealing Himself to us, so that we will turn from our transgressions; overcome our foolish pride; and adopt His way of doing things as our own, before it is too late for us.  Almighty God will definitely get our attention, so we repent of our wickedness and evil and choose righteousness, love and obedience instead.   

Those who continue to defy our God and disobey His commandments will soon find themselves on the outside looking in when heaven comes to this earth.  The Lord will in no way tolerate destruction of any of His creation.  He will banish all wrongdoers in the wrath of His coming.  He will rectify all wrongs and show mercy and grace to those who repent of their ways and adopt His values and practices as their own. 

Psalm 145:8-12 “The LORD [is] gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.  The LORD [is] good to all: and his tender mercies [are] over all his works.  All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.”   

The Lord developed a brilliant plan to save all of mankind from destruction when Adam rebelled against Him in the Garden of Eden.  He purposed to send His very own Son to this world to take back all that we had lost.  Christ came to defeat the works of the devil and to redeem mankind from the curse.  He suffered and died, so that we would all have life in abundance to the overflow. 

We are fortunate to have grace with our God – His unmerited favor, mercy and compassion.  He overlooks a great many of our mistakes and always gives us the benefit of the doubt.  If we have believed in His Son, Jesus Christ, and all that He did for us, He sees us as being totally righteous.  We have inherited the gift of eternal life, and we are regarded as His very own sons and daughters. 

The Lord has determined to gather us to Himself for all of eternity, so that we can be in intimate fellowship with Him, as He originally intended.  He will soon bring heaven itself to this earth realm, so that we can be together for all time.  He expects us to cleanse ourselves of all defilement and be righteous and obedient to all that He tells us to do, so that we can dwell in His awesome presence.   

We must share our faith, so that others can be rescued from the darkness and destruction that threatens to take them out.  We must warn all of mankind of the impending judgment and challenge them to repent and be baptized in Jesus’ name.  There is no way that anyone can be saved from their sins without a sincere belief in our Lord and Savior and all He has accomplished on our behalf.   

Our God will ultimately be exalted before all of creation, and lavish us with His many blessings in the everlasting Kingdom of God.  We will dwell in paradise on this earth.  He will change our mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms and supply all we require to be healthy, happy and prosperous.  We will praise His holy name and worship Him in Spirit and in truth forever more.
 

Power And Glory In Creation 

Jeremiah 51:15-16 “He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.  When he uttereth [his] voice, [there is] a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth: he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.”   

Almighty God created the entire universe with mere words and then breathed His Spirit into every living thing.  He simply spoke and everything came into being.  The cosmos, with all of its splendor, reflects His glorious handiwork.  The wind, rain, thunder and lightning demonstrate His awesome power in nature.  Man, plants and animals all showcase His infinite wisdom and special attention to detail. 

Everywhere we look we see tangible proof of the Lord’s inimitable power and glory manifested.  This universe is at once both simple and complex in its design.  All life forms are perfectly engineered to be self-perpetuating, yet are also mutually dependent upon one another.  There is a balance in nature that exists for a specific reason and purpose.  God loves beauty and He takes pride in His workmanship.  

He is not far off, separated and distant from His creation.  He sustains all life forms and cares about even the minutest details of their existence.  He grieves when any of His creatures suffer and rejoices when everything is in total equilibrium, as He originally ordained it to be.  Peace, order and stability prevail when God is in charge, and He expects mankind to be good stewards of all that He has designed. 

The heavens are the Lord’s, but the earth He has given to men.  We must preserve and protect all the wonders of this world and be conservative in the use of natural resources.  We cannot continue to greedily consume the bounty around us and cause pollution to the air, water and soil.  We have been given a sacred charge to renew, refresh and replenish this earth, so that heaven itself can be brought here.  

Psalm 148:1-6 “Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.  Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that [be] above the heavens. Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.” 

All of nature sings God’s praises and reflects His power and glory.  He designed and sustains all life forms by His inherent wisdom and benevolence.  He is infinitely loving, merciful and compassionate to mankind, even though we may not deserve it.  He has a perfect plan in place for our future well-being.  It is His greatest desire to fellowship intimately with us, as He originally intended from the very beginning of time. 

The Lord plans on gathering His people to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God and residing with us here on this earth.  His perfect way of doing things will eventually prevail, so that all of creation is as it was originally designed to be.  This world as we know it will never end, as some suppose, but it will definitely be changed to line up with what God has predetermined.  It will literally be a paradise for all forms of life. 

Heaven itself is coming to the earth.  There will be no more defilement or contamination of this planet, nor greedy consumption of valuable, natural resources for personal gain.  The plants and animals will all be in perfect harmony with one another and subject to mankind, just as they once were in the Garden of Eden.  The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable, and all forms of pollution will be reversed. 

The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems.  Almighty God will set matters straight in this world, and make certain that everything is restored to its original beauty and balance.  He created this universe for His pleasure, and He will not permit it to ever be destroyed.  He will ultimately vanquish all those who threaten the welfare of His masterful workmanship. 

1Chronicles 29:11 “Thine, O LORD, [is] the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all [that is] in the heaven and in the earth [is thine]; thine [is] the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.”  

Our God is able to do all things.  He has provided for all of our needs – both spiritual and temporal.  He even made a way for us to be redeemed from all of our sinfulness when we fell short of His glory thousands of years ago.  He sent His beloved Son to save all of mankind and to provide us with life in abundance.  There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from His people who are called by His holy name. 

He will soon gather us to Himself in a literal paradise on this earth for all of eternity.  We will see heaven come here in the Kingdom of God.  Everything will be as it was originally intended from the foundation of the world.  We are returning to our beginnings.  Satan will be cast into the bottomless pit, and all forms of wickedness and evil will be abolished before our very eyes.  Nothing will ever harm or defile us ever again. 

The Lord will be exalted in all of His creation.  Both men and angels will give Him all the praise, gratitude and devotion that He deserves.  Our God will actually come and take up residence with us, as He promised us that He would.   He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and boast of us as His very own sons and daughters.   We will have peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom. 

The Kingdom of God will be a perfect environment for all those who love the Lord and respect the power of His might.  He will supply all our needs in abundance according to His riches in glory.  We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with gladness in our hearts.  We will bask in His awesome presence and fellowship intimately with Him, as He always desired. 
 

His Eternal Power And Godhead 

Romans 1:20 “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”    

Almighty God reflects His power and glory in everything that He says and does.  He is the eternal, triune Godhead – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  He is capable of both creation and destruction.  He is all wise and all powerful.  He spoke and everything that exists was formed out of nothing.  He is an awesome deity and we should give Him all the deference and respect that He deserves. 

If we look closely at the creation, we can easily see the sheer genius of God demonstrated in all of its magnificence.  All things were designed by Him for His good pleasure and He sustains everything that was made to perfection.  Mankind is His masterpiece, yet we cannot take advantage of our position.  We have grace and favor with Him, but we also have boundaries and limits. 

We are without excuse.  There is no reason why we should exceed our authority and take advantage of the Lord’s generosity in blessing us with all good things.  We have no legitimate cause for our selfishness and greed.  There is an ample supply of everything that we need to sustain life made readily available to us.  The lust for more and more material things will simply consume us. 

If we are not careful we will alienate our God to the point that He lifts His hand of protection off of us and leaves us to our own devices.  We will destroy the earth and everyone in it through reckless behavior that violates God’s laws and transgresses His commands.  We must repent from the heart and change our ways before it is too late.  The Lord wants to rescue us from all that defiles. 

Psalm 124:8 “Our help [is] in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”   

Almighty God never purposed that there would be chaos and confusion in our world.  He meant for man to live in total peace, taking dominion over all of His creation.  When sin entered onto the scene in the Garden of Eden, man relinquished his control over the environment to Satan, the enemy of his soul.  The devil has been hard at work ever since, in an attempt to destroy all the good that the Lord has initiated. 

There is turmoil in the universe right now – none of which God ever intended.  Natural forces are simply responding to the horrific conflict of good vs. evil that is taking place in the spirit realm.  We feel the negative effects here on this earth in the form of tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and earthquakes.  They bring only death and destruction in their wake, but they are not a judgment sent from almighty God. 

They are a result of the adverse circumstances that are brought on us by the enemy.  They will eventually cease and desist, and all of nature will be at peace once again.  Almighty God will sovereignly move to protect the earth and everyone in it from the ravages of Satan.  He will banish him and all of  his minions to the bottomless pit, so that they will never bring any fear and torment on God’s people ever again. 

In the mean time, each of us has a critical choice to make.  Will we embrace righteousness and godliness as a way of life or will we take matters into our own hands and go to perdition?  We cannot be on the fence in any way.  Our future can be a bright one or we can be lost for all time.  The decisions that we make now have eternal ramifications and we must prayerfully consider everything that we think, say and do. 

Jeremiah 23:23-24 “[Am] I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.”   

We must remember that all things are possible to God, and that by Him all things were created for our express benefit.  He wants us to have life in abundance, but we must adhere to His perfect standards or things will go awry, as they have in the past.  This universe thrives in its divinely ordained balance.  That is how it was designed, and we must preserve it if we wish to reap its blessings.  Our God sees everything and He will have to intervene if we transgress His natural and spiritual laws. 

It is important that we remember our place at all times and determine how we will conduct ourselves.  We have been given all things to freely enjoy, but that does not give us license to abuse our privileges and exceed the limits of our authority.  We must be godly role models for others and be faithful stewards of all that the Lord has given us, so we can positively impact the future of this earth. 

Mankind should be eternally grateful for all that we have and give glory and honor to our Creator.  He is an all powerful God that delights in our welfare.  He will never leave us or forsake us, despite our poor judgment and stubborn willfulness.  He will sovereignly move to correct the imbalance that currently exists, and re-establish peace, order and stability through the entire universe.  He will work through a people who are called by His holy name to finally set all matters straight.  

We will assume our roles as the sons and daughters of God so we can restore all of creation.  Plants and animals will soon be in total harmony once again and subject to man.  The climate will be temperate and predictable.  There will be no more natural catastrophes, nor harmful effects from pollution.  The earth will be cleansed of all its defilement and fully renovated to line up with God’s will.   
 

Manifestations of the Power And Glory  

Exodus 33:18-19 “And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory. And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.”  

The Lord manifests His power and glory in tangible ways.  All of creation reflects His goodness and mercy.  He formed all living things for His pleasure and to demonstrate His good will.  Man was created in His very image and likeness so that He could fellowship intimately with us.  The Lord is not to be feared and dreaded.  It is His goodness that changes us, so that we can turn towards Him and freely receive all things. 

Our God wants nothing more than that mankind is reconciled to Him despite our former sin and rebellion.  He has made salvation available to one and all through the merits of the Blood of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ.  We have no reason to be estranged from our Creator any longer.  Redemption is accessible to all who will repent of their sin; call on the Lord’s name; and appropriate the righteousness of Jesus by faith. 

We have grace with God, unmerited favor in all that we think, say and do, once we are born again in our spirit man.  He does not impute our sins to us if we have made Christ the Lord of our lives.  He sees us as accepted in the beloved, His very own sons and daughters.  We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness, and seated with Him in heavenly places at the very right hand of almighty God Himself. 

The Lord will supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory.  He will not withhold any good thing from His people who are called by His holy name.  He will prosper us now and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity.  He will imbue us with His very own anointing power and authority so we can take dominion over the entire earth.  We are His goodwill ambassadors who will rescue all of mankind from destruction. 

Zechariah 4:6 “… Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” 

Almighty God manifests His power and glory through the people who are called by His holy name.  Once we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, our lives changes as never before.  We become new creatures in Him.  Our minds are renewed and our behavior is transformed until it becomes godly.  We can receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit of God so that we are strengthened in our spirit man.  We begin to develop the characteristics and attributes of God, to such an extent that we can become holy and perfect.

We gradually become loving, peaceful and joyous, and we go deeper in our worship of the Lord.  We are good and gentle in all of our dealings with others.  We exhibit meekness, temperance and longsuffering and our faith is strengthened.  We acquire divine power and authority to operate in the manifestations of the Holy Spirit.  We can discern spirits, prophesy, utter words of wisdom and words of knowledge to others.  We are gifted in areas that we may never have had experience before, but the Lord still equips us to handle. 

If we walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh, all things become possible to us.  We embrace our divine destinies and serve the Lord and His people with genuine zeal.  We are able to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with true conviction and baptize countless numbers in His name.  We can heal the sick of all their afflictions; cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil; and even raise the dead back to life.  We will take back the earth for the Kingdom of God and destroy all demonic strongholds that oppose us. 

Psalm 29:1-4 “Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. The voice of the LORD [is] upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD [is] upon many waters. The voice of the LORD [is] powerful; the voice of the LORD [is] full of majesty.” 

Almighty God always speaks to us, if we will only pay attention to His voice.  He has only our best interest at heart, and wants us to be loving, righteous and obedient, plus grateful for all that He has done for us.  The very same God who created the entire universe in all of His majesty and glory has the power to destroy anything and anyone that contaminates it.  He will not sit back and allow His creation to be defiled. 

The voice of God thunders throughout all the universe and whispers to man in the night season.  The Lord expects us to have a healthy reverence for Him and obey all that He commands us to do.  We cannot be reckless and irresponsible, wicked and rebellious, and hope to be blessed.  Our Creator has limits and boundaries for our behavior that He has established.  We would be wise to always heed His warnings. 

We are rapidly approaching the end of all things, as we know them.  We cannot slide into the Kingdom of almighty God merely based on good intentions.  We will soon be held accountable for all of our works in the flesh.  All men, and even angels, will be judged according to the Lord’s perfect, impeccable standards.  He will generously reward righteousness, and banish all wickedness and evil from His holy presence. 

Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, [and] there is nothing too hard for thee:” 

We must be righteous in God’s eyes through faith in all that His Son, Jesus Christ did for us.  We should, additionally, walk in love at all times, regardless of the provocation to do otherwise.  We should obey all that the Lord asks us to do and embrace our divine destinies in preaching the Gospel, so that others can be redeemed to eternal life just as we have been.  

Our God is well able to strengthen us in the power of His might, so that we can serve Him and His people with joy and enthusiasm.  He will equip us to walk in the supernatural realm and to operate just as Jesus did during His earthly ministry.  We will heal the sick of all their diseases, cast out demons that hold men in bondage, and even raise the dead back to life. 

It is critical that we teach all men to obey God’s commandments.  It is equally important that they learn to be grateful for all of their blessings and become accountable for their behavior.  Strife and division, greed and lust for power, pride and arrogance should not even be named among us.  We have privileges as the children of God together with responsibilities. 

While the Lord is eminently loving, kind and merciful to the human condition, He will not ever tolerate deliberate defiance in any of us.  He will punish all the evildoers and wipe them off the face of the earth in the wrath of His coming.  We should adopt His ways as our very own, so that things can go well for us now and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity.
 

Power And Glory In Action 

Hebrews 12:25-26 “See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more [shall not] we [escape], if we turn away from him that [speaketh] from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.” 

What happens on this earth closely mirrors what is going on in the heavenlies.  There is a huge, spiritual battle between good and evil that is currently being waged.  The Lord permits fallout on this planet to get His people’s attention.  The enemy is hard at work in an attempt to steal, kill and destroy all that is good.  He knows that his time is short and that his power is waning. 

Heavenly hosts of angels and archangels are combating his efforts as never before, and all of creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God to set it at liberty.  The Lord is shaking up His people to get them to rise up in their God-given power and authority to reclaim the earth and everything in it.  We have divine destinies that must be fulfilled before Christ returns. 

We are kings and priests of God in training for reigning, and we must do the work that Jesus Himself did, so that His ministry can be completed.  We should preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with fervor and make salvation to eternal life available to all of mankind.  We must also take control over our natural environment, so that peace, order and stability are reinstated. 

2Chronicles 20:6 “And said, O LORD God of our fathers, [art] not thou God in heaven? and rulest [not] thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand [is there not] power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?” 

The Lord will move through a people who are called by His holy name in these last days.  If we are surrendered to His will and sanctified totally and completely, He will imbue us with His very own power and authority to act in His stead.  If we are consecrated and dedicated to His purpose, we will accomplish great feats and operate in miracles, signs and wonders.   

We are the Body of Christ Himself – His hands, feet and voice on the earth.  We serve as a beacon of light to those who are still lost in darkness and deception.  We will set the captives free of all their bondage to sin and evil and take back the entire planet for our Lord and Savior.  We will bind the enemy, cast him out and loose multiple blessings for the entire human race. 

It is critical that we combat the devil and all of his attempts to deter our work or impede our progress in the name of Jesus Christ.  Satan does not want the Kingdom of God to manifest on this earth.  He realizes that he is already a defeated foe and that we have been given power over him to destroy all demonic strongholds in this world.  However, he will not acquiesce willingly. 

The people of God will have to be vigilant and obey all that the Lord asks us to do in the critical days that lie ahead.  We should take our roles in the Lord’s eternal redemption plan very seriously.  We have divine destinies that must be fulfilled or important work will remain undone.   We will overcome all satanic efforts by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. 

Psalm 62:11-12 “God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power [belongeth] unto God.   Also unto thee, O Lord, [belongeth] mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.”  

If we are faithful to do all that the Lord asks of us, we will see heaven brought to this earth in record time.  Almighty God will generously reward us for all of our efforts on His behalf and actually come and take up residence with His people.  He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and vindicate us before both men and angels.  He will banish Satan to the abyss and cast all evildoers into the lake of fire. 

The righteous will dwell in a literal paradise, while the wicked will be remembered no more.  All the nations of the world will be evaluated to see if they will survive the wrath of God.  Even the dead will be raised back to life again to stand judgment with the rest of us.  No living creature will escape the Lord’s scrutiny, nor be able to persuade Him to lower any of His perfect, impeccable standards. 

Our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, will be exalted in all of the creation.  We will worship them in Spirit and in truth and celebrate all of their sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts.  Both men and angels will give God all the praise, honor and glory that He so richly deserves.

The Lord will be pleased with us and boast of us as His sons and daughters forever more.
 

An Omnipotent God 

Nahum 1:2-3 “God [is] jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and [is] furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth [wrath] for his enemies. The LORD [is] slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit [the wicked]: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds [are] the dust of his feet.” 

The Lord reserves His wrath for the children of disobedience and for Satan himself.  He will sovereignly move to correct the present imbalance that occurs today.  He will take vengeance on all of His enemies and smite them with His powerful right hand.  He is a jealous God and He will not ever permit His people to continue to be harmed or contaminated in any way. 

The Day of the Lord will come suddenly like “a thief in the night.”  Almighty God will show Himself strong on our behalf.  He will totally obliterate all wickedness and evil off the face of the earth, and cast the devil and all of his minions into the bottomless pit.  All wrongdoers will be judged and condemned to never ending punishment in the unquenchable lake of fire. 

Our God plans on taking up residence with His people on this earth in His everlasting Kingdom.  However, He will tolerate no sin and rebellion is His holy presence.  Anything that defiles either God or man will be totally eradicated.  Jesus Christ will rule and reign with a rod of iron to make certain that no evil ever enters into His Kingdom to disturb its peace and tranquility. 

Isaiah 13:11 “And I will punish the world for [their] evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.”   

The Lord has been infinitely patient with us, but very soon now He will take a stand against all of the lawlessness that currently prevails on this earth.  He will tolerate no sin and rebellion in any of His creatures any longer.  He will cast Satan into the bottomless pit and smite all sinners in His fierce anger.  This world will not end, but it will be drastically changed. 

We have had ample warning about what is to come.  The Lord has manifested Himself in nature and spoken through His prophets.  His very own sons and daughters have gone to the nations to offer them salvation to eternal life.  Wicked, lawless men and angels have steadfastly rejected God’s overtures, and He has no choice but to remove them from His holy presence. 

All evidence points to the second coming of Christ.  There are signs and wonders in all of creation that herald His return.  The Lord is about to display a tremendous might that will change the configuration and appearance of the entire universe.  All of creation will be positively impacted on the Day of the Lord.  Our God will show Himself strong and display His eternal glory. 

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ will soon return as the King of kings and Lord of lords.  However, He will not come as a meek and mild Lamb of God this time.  He has vengeance in His heart to destroy all of His enemies.  He will abolish all wickedness and evil and enforce His judgment in the government of God.  All knees will have to bow to Him and glorify His holy name. 

Jeremiah 10:10 “But the LORD [is] the true God, he [is] the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.”  

We are rapidly approaching the point of no return.  We cannot afford to flirt with sin and evil any longer.  We will have to make the all-important choice to repent of our sins and accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior or be destroyed in our very own ignorance and rebellion.  The Lord will not permit any of His creation to be defiled or contaminated any longer. 

The nations of this world will all be judged to see if they have been righteous and obedient.  All of their rulers will be held accountable for their dealings with God’s people.  Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord.”  He will be exalted among the heathen and believers alike.  He will be our righteous King and benevolent leader forever more. 

The earth will be shaken to the foundation, and men will tremble for fear of what is coming on them.  The righteous will be spared God’s wrath, but the wicked will go to perdition.  The devil and his minions will be cast into the bottomless pit, so that they can no longer oppress God’s people.  All wrongdoers will be permanently banished to the unquenchable lake of fire. 

Only those who are righteous, loving and obedient will ever enter into the Kingdom of God.  The Lord will boast of us to all of creation as His sons and daughters and gather us to Himself.  He will change our mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that never die, and supply all of our needs in abundance.  We will actually dwell with Him and thrive in His presence.   

Psalm 102:15 “So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.”  

The Lord will not permit anyone or anything to destroy the earth or the people who are called by His holy name.  He will sovereignly move to settle all scores and level all playing fields.  The meek will inherit the earth, not the wicked and imperious.  Those who are first now will soon be last, and the least among us will be exalted when heaven itself is brought to the earth.   

The entire universe will be restructured according to the Lord’s perfect plan.  There will no longer be death and disease to torment us.  All wars, violence and conflict will cease.  Poverty and lack will be abolished.  There will be no more social injustice.  All men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.  The Lord will supply all of our needs even before we ask Him. 

Our heavenly Father will boast of us to all of creation as His beloved sons and daughters.  If we have been faithful to serve Him and His people, we will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory.  We will judge both men and angels and even be appointed kings and priests of almighty God.  He will give us the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth. 

Jesus Christ will serve as a righteous King over all the nations of the world.  He will rule and reign with a rod of iron to make certain that we are always safe and secure.  Nothing that defiles God or man will ever be permitted to enter into His everlasting Kingdom.  We will have peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His awesome presence. 


Glorified To The Nations 

1 Chronicles 16:28-31 “Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory [due] unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let [men] say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.” 

Our Lord and Savior will be glorified to all of the nations for all of eternity.  He will rule and reign as a righteous King and benefactor to all of God’s people.  He will provide all of our needs in abundance even before we ask Him.  There is no good thing – spiritual or temporal – that He will ever withhold from us.  Almighty God will show Himself strong on our behalf. 

He will fellowship with us, as He always desired, and we will be the people who are called by His name.  There will no longer be any chaos and confusion in our lives.  No death or destruction will torment us ever again.  All of creation will be peaceful, orderly and stable, as it was originally intended to be.  Men will all be righteous and dwell together as brothers and sisters. 

The Kingdom of God will be paradise on this earth.  Both men and angels will continually worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, as He desires.  We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts.  We will go up to the New Jerusalem and visit Him on His holy mountain.  We will give Him all thanks, praise and glory. 

Jeremiah 4:2 “And thou shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.” 

Our God is alive and well, and still very much in control over His creation.  He supplies all that we need to be healthy, happy and prosperous.  He will soon demonstrate His unfailing love, mercy and compassion to the righteous remnant from all of the nations of the world.  He is our provider and our protector, our total source for all good things, and He will never leave us or forsake us. 

The Lord will manifest Himself to all of creation as a loving Father.  All of mankind will be blessed because of Him.  He will wipe away all of our tears and heal all of our pain and suffering.  He will defend us against all of our adversaries and recompense us for anything that we have lost or had stolen.  Our God is righteous and just and He will ultimately level all playing fields. 

There will be no more strife and division, exploitation or injustice, poverty and lack anywhere on this earth.  He will make certain that His people have never ending peace.  We should be eminently grateful and thank Him for all His efforts on our behalf.  The Lord is worthy of all our praise, honor and glory.  His name is above every other name and He should be exalted for all of eternity. 

Psalm 72:17-19 “His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and [men] shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed. Blessed [be] the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things. And blessed [be] his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled [with] his glory; Amen, and Amen.”   

Our God is an awesome God; He reigns over heaven and earth with wisdom, power and love.  His glory is above all and His name should be magnified by both men and angels.  The Lord is the source of all of our blessings.  In Him, we have all that we need, even before we ask Him.  He is ever faithful to share all the vast resources of the universe with His people. 

He works miracles on our behalf and upholds us with His right hand of power.  He is ever faithful to protect us from all harm.  He will deliver us from all of our adversaries and vindicate all wrongs done to us.  He will change our mortal bodies to be like Christ’s very own, so that we live forever in good health and vitality to see our offspring for all generations. 

There is no good thing that our God will ever withhold from us.  The Lord will make certain that we are peaceful and prosperous, safe and secure, free and joyful for all eternity.  His Kingdom will last forever and He will be worshipped by both men and angels.  The entire earth will be filled with His glory, as we all celebrate His sabbaths and perpetual feast days.
 

The Earth Will Be Filled With His Glory 

Psalm 108:3 “I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. For thy mercy [is] great above the heavens: and thy truth [reacheth] unto the clouds. Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;” 

There is nothing that can compare with the magnificence of our God as evidenced in His creation.  He is all powerful and yet He pays attention to the smallest details.  He has formed our entire universe out of nothing and sustains all living things through His infinite wisdom and strength.  All of nature displays His handiwork and showcases His engineering prowess.  Nothing is too difficult for Him.   

It is impossible for us to deny that there was a creative genius at work in forming both the heavens and the earth.  Surely nothing happened by accident.  Intelligent design is more than a speculative theory; it is a concrete fact.  The cosmos is so intricately configured and perfectly balanced that it could only be a master designer of the highest caliber who would be capable of such brilliant workmanship. 

Almighty God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  He always was and always will be the one and only prime mover and source of all life.  He will demonstrate His majesty up close and personal in the days to come.  He wants to manifest His awesome glory on this earth, as it is in heaven.  The Lord is actually planning to take up residence with His people and dwell in our midst for all of eternity. 

But first, He will rid the planet of all defilement.  Wickedness and evil of all types will be eradicated.  The Lord will sovereignly move to rectify all wrongs and correct all the imbalance that exists.  He will work through His people who are called by His name and take back the entire earth and restore it to its original beauty and balance.  Nothing will remain the same; He will make all things new again. 

Revelation 19:1 “And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:” 

The Lord will gather all of the righteous to Himself, as He planned from the very foundation of the world.  There will never be a separation between God and man ever again.  He will provide all of our needs and protect us from all harm as He has promised.  Jesus Christ will change our bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that never get sick and die. 

Heaven itself is soon coming to this earth and all things will be made new.  There will be no more pain and suffering, no disease and death.  Poverty and lack will be things of the past.  Wars, violence and conflict will not even be named among us.  All men will be righteous and dwell together as brothers and sisters or be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire. 

Jesus Christ will rule and reign as a righteous King with a rod of iron.  No evil or defilement will ever come near His people.  He will enforce godly principles of righteousness, fairness and justice in the government of almighty God on this earth.  All the nations will give Him thanks and praise.  We will worship our God in Spirit and in truth, as He has always desired.

Numbers 14:21 “But [as] truly [as] I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.” 

The Kingdom of God will be heaven on the earth, a literal paradise, for both God and man.  We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden with no downside at all.  The Lord will fellowship intimately with His people who are called by His holy name.  We will have all of our needs met in abundance even before we ask Him.  There is no good thing that our God will ever withhold from us.  It is His intent to lavish us with eternal blessings beyond what we could ever ask or think. 

All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful.  There will be no more natural disasters, no more pollution to defile our environment in any way.  Plants and animals will be in total harmony and subject to man once again.  We will share in all the vast resources of the universe that are at our disposal.  We will grow crops for our food and dwell in peaceful habitations for all of eternity.  We will all be healthy and vigorous to see our children and our children’s children for all the many generations to come. 

The entire universe will be peaceful, stable and orderly.  There will be no more chaos and confusion, no death and destruction anywhere.  The absence of all evil guarantees that men and angels will dwell in perfect tranquility together, as God intends for us.  The Lord will actually come and tabernacle with His people and reside on His holy mountain outside the New Jerusalem.  We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days with joy and gladness and give Him thanks, praise and honor.
 

A Glorious Kingdom On The Earth 

Isaiah 60:19-21 “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. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Thy people also [shall be] all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.”   

Everything will change and be made new in the everlasting Kingdom of God.  The glory of the Lord Himself will light up the entire universe.  The sun will no longer shine by day, nor the moon by night.  The Kingdom will be heaven on the earth – perfect in every way.  It will be beautiful and serene, lush and bountiful.  We will dwell in a paradise forever more. 

Christ will change these mortal bodies into new, glorious resurrection forms that are like His very own.  We will no longer have to deal with disease and death.  He will meet all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him.  There is no good thing that we will ever lack.  We will have peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His holy presence. 

The Lord will blot out all of our pain and suffering from our memories and give us a just recompense for all that we have lost or had stolen from us over the years.  He will protect us from all harm and punish all of our enemies.  Satan will be bound in the abyss and all wrongdoers will be cast into the eternal lake of fire.

There will be nothing that defiles our lives ever again. 

Jesus Christ will rule and reign over all of the nations of the world.  He will share His very own honor and glory with those who have been faithful to serve Him and His people.  We will be appointed kings and priests of God and judge both men and angels.  All of mankind will learn to be righteous and holy, and dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity.

1Chronicles 29:11-12 “Thine, O LORD, [is] the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all [that is] in the heaven and in the earth [is thine]; thine [is] the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.  Both riches and honour [come] of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand [is] power and might; and in thine hand [it is] to make great, and to give strength unto all.” 

Soon every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord over all of creation.”  He will be a righteous King and a generous benefactor to His people.  He will provide all that we need to be healthy, happy and prosperous.  He will protect us from all harm and enforce godly principles of fairness, equality and justice, on earth as it is in heaven. 

The Kingdom of God will last forever and be the consummation of the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for His people.  Our heavenly Father will literally come and reside with us, as He has always desired.  He will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters.  Both men and angels will give Him all the praise, honor and gratitude that He so deserves. 

We will live in His holy presence and revel in all that He has planned for us.  The entire creation will be as it was originally intended to be from the very beginning of time. Man will have dominion over the plants and animals, as we once did in the Garden of Eden.  We will build beautiful homes for our large families and dwell in peaceful habitations for all eternity. 

Revelation 21:1-4 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God [is] with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, [and be] their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”  

The Lord will reside on His holy mountain outside the New Jerusalem and be in an intimate relationship with His people.  He will take an active interest in all the details of our lives.  No need – spiritual or temporal – will go unmet.  Our God will make certain that we have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom forever more. 

The glory of the Lord will light up His entire Kingdom.  Jesus Christ will rule and reign as a righteous King and make certain that His people are free from all harm.  Nothing will ever defile our lives ever again.  Life in the everlasting Kingdom of God will be idyllic, the perfect habitat for both God and man.  The Lord will ensure that nothing ever disturbs our peace and serenity. 

We will dwell together as brothers and sisters and see our offspring for all generations to come.  All of creation will be at rest and subject to us as its caretakers.  There will be no more predatory activities or natural catastrophes ever again.  No death and destruction will cause us any pain and suffering.  We will thrive for all eternity and experience days of heaven on the earth. 

The Lord is taking us back to our beginnings in paradise.  He will be praised and exalted for all that He has done for His people.  We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and communicate with Him personally.  There will never be a separation between God and mankind ever again.  We will celebrate all His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts. 

 

 

Chapter 2 - The Power and Glory Of Jesus Christ 

John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”  

Almighty God had a perfect plan in place from the very beginning of time.  Jesus Christ is the Word of God who was present with the Father from the creation itself.  By Him all things were made.  He had a vision of life in all its various forms and then spoke powerful words, so that everything materialized from nothing. The entire universe came into being because Jesus both imagined and verbalized it. 

The Lord saw everything that He had made and it was good.  It wasn’t until man was created that things went awry.  Our ancestors were formed in God’s very own image and likeness to dwell in paradise for all of eternity, but they had a flawed human nature that was susceptible to temptation and sin.  The devil persuaded the first man and woman to rebel against God and challenge His authority. 

Our Creator had no choice but to banish Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden and sentence them to spiritual and physical death for their transgression.  From that point on, man has been estranged from his God and without hope for his future.  Both man and God have suffered from the effects of sin.  The Lord lost the intimate fellowship that He desires and man lost his right standing with God. 

There was only one solution possible to rectify this impasse.  God had to intervene on our behalf and somehow satisfy the death penalty for all mankind.  The Lord sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth realm to redeem us from all of our sins and to restore us to righteousness once again.  Jesus was the Word of God incarnate – the perfect Lamb of God – who served as our sacrificial substitute. 

Hebrews 2:9 “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” 

When Jesus Christ came down to this earth, He laid down all of His deity and was born one of us.  He was human in every way, yet sinless and perfect in every respect.  He emptied Himself of all privilege and power as almighty God and dwelt among us as a mere man for over thirty years.  He endured tests, trials and temptations, just as we do, yet He never transgressed any of God’s laws. 

It was only when Jesus was baptized by John in the River Jordan that He became empowered with the Holy Spirit of God and was able to perform miracles on our behalf.  From that point onward, He healed the sick, cast out demons and even raised the dead back to life once again.  He destroyed the works of the devil by preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to all men, women and children. 

When His earthly ministry was complete, our Lord and Savior laid down His very own life, so that we could be set free vicariously from the penalty of death for our sins.  He suffered, died and was buried so that all of mankind could inherit eternal life.  He rose again from the dead as the firstborn of many sons and daughters, and He is seated in power and glory at the right hand of the Father. 

Christ will come to the earth realm again in the very near future.  However, He will not return as a meek and mild Lamb of God this time.  He has vengeance in His heart to destroy all of His enemies and He will smite them in the wrath of His coming.  All wickedness and evil will ultimately be banished from this world and the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God will be free of defilement. 

2Corinthians 4:6 “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

The very same God, who commanded light to shine in the darkness and created the entire universe, has shined in our hearts to give light and revelation of who Jesus Christ is and what He did for all of mankind.  If we believe that He was indeed the Son of God who came to this earth to redeem us of all of our sins, and confess Him as our personal Lord and Savior, we will be saved to eternal life. 

There is no power in hell that can keep us from having a personal relationship with almighty God now.  Jesus destroyed the works of the devil for all time.  He is a defeated foe and we can overcome him by the Blood of the Lamb and the words of our testimony.  We can rule and reign in this life and in the Kingdom to come through our faith in Christ and all that He accomplished on our behalf. 

Our God did not forsake us in our rebellion.  He had a plan in place from the very beginning of time.  He knew that we would sin and fall short of His glory, but there was no way that He would permit us to go to perdition.  God so loved mankind that He gave His only Son for our express benefit.  Although it pained the Lord to watch Jesus suffer, He knew it would result in all consuming glory. 

The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead was almighty God’s single greatest accomplishment since the creation itself.  His awesome power manifested for the good of all mankind.  Had Jesus simply gone to the grave and remained there, we would all still be relegated to physical and spiritual death for our sins. However, since He has been raised to eternal life, we can join Him in paradise. 

1John 4:2-3 “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”  

There is no compromise possible when it comes to our faith.  We must either believe the truth to be set free or perish in our ignorance and rebellion for all of eternity.  Almighty God had a perfect plan in place for our redemption, but it involved a huge sacrifice on His behalf.  He sent His only beloved Son to this world to save us from our transgressions and teach us His way of doing things. 

We must believe that Jesus Christ was indeed the Son of God made man for our express benefit.  He came to this earth in human form to take on all of the sins of mankind and to defeat the works of the devil.  He suffered, died and was buried, so that we could inherit the gift of eternal life.  On the third day, He rose again from the dead as the firstborn of many sons and daughters of God. 

If we deny the truth and refuse so great a salvation, we have an anti-Christ spirit that will eventually lead to our downfall.  None of us can be righteous in our own strength.  Unless we believe in the Son of God and appropriate His righteousness by faith, we will die in our sinfulness.  There is no middle ground possible.  Our redemption is strictly contingent on our willingness to accept the truth. 

There is no way to the Father except through the cross of Jesus Christ.  If we repent of our sins and confess Him as our personal Lord and Savior we will be saved.  Our right standing with almighty God is then restored and we become joint-heirs to all of His promises.  Once we are born again in our spirits, we are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the very right hand of God Himself.
 

Power And Glory Incarnate 

2Peter 1:16-17 “For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

Almighty God had no other recourse but to sovereignly move to save mankind from all their transgressions after the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  All of us were doomed to spiritual and physical death as a result of their rebellion.  While it may be difficult for us to grasp that Jesus was the Word of God Himself made flesh for our express benefit, it is the precise truth that will set us free.   

Jesus Christ laid down His deity when He came to this world in human form and was born one of us.  He experienced everything that we do, including the temptation to sin.  However, He was perfect in all His ways and totally obedient to the Father at all times.  When Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan River, almighty God affirmed Him as His beloved Son and He commenced His earthly ministry. 

Christ was imbued with divine power and authority to defeat the works of the devil by the operation of the Holy Spirit of God Himself.  He proceeded to teach us God’s ways and to work miracles, signs and wonders to alleviate our pain and suffering.  Jesus preached the good news of the Kingdom of God and urged all men, women and children to repent of their sins and be baptized to eternal life.   

Even though He knew no sin Himself, Jesus Christ became sin for us, so that He could pay the penalty of death for the sins of all of mankind once and for all.  He suffered, died and was buried as our sacrificial substitute, so that we would not have to endure the same fate.  Because of His perfect obedience unto death, we are released from the curse of the law and we receive life in abundance to the overflow. 

Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”   

The Spirit of almighty God rested on Jesus during His earthly ministry, to the point that He was anointed with divine power and authority to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with real conviction.  He healed the sick of all their afflictions and made them whole again.  He cast out demons that held men in bondage to sin and evil and even raised the dead back to life.   

Jesus could read men’s thoughts and perceive their heart’s intentions.  He transported Himself and His disciples through the power of the Holy Spirit and even spoke to nature to quiet the wind and the waves.  He worked miracles of multiplication with the wine, loaves and fishes.  Jesus was always willing and obedient to do everything that our heavenly Father asked of Him. 

He exceeded the Lord’s expectations of Him in every way, and even went willingly to the cross on our behalf.  Christ took on all our sins, as if they were His own, and suffered betrayal, humiliation, torture and death just for us.  He experienced a temporary separation from His Father during His agonizing ordeal, so that we could be redeemed from all of our sins to eternal life. 

Jesus spent three days in the grave and even descended into hell, so that He could defeat all powers and principalities and make an open show of them.  He took back our dominion over the earth and shared it with those who believe in Him.  He then rose again from the dead through the power of the Holy Spirit, so that all mankind could be victorious over sin, death and the grave. 

Matthew 28:18 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” 

Christ’s resurrection power extends far beyond the grave and enables us to live life in abundance to the overflow.  If we believe in Him and the power of the cross to redeem us from all sinfulness, we can be strengthened in our spirit man so that we can walk in His footsteps.  We must imitate His laid down life and resume His ministry where He left off.  We can prevail in all things, just as Christ did. 

Although it might appear that His life on this earth was a failure, Jesus overcame all demonic powers and principalities.  He made an open show of Satan to all creation when He died and rose again from the dead.  The devil was stripped of his ability to oppress mankind and hold them in bondage any longer.  He is a defeated foe and we now have our dominion over all things on this earth restored to us. 

If we are sincere believers in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and all that He accomplished on our behalf, we share in His divine power and authority to rule and reign on this earth.  We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God.  Righteousness is no longer an issue for us.  We are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.  We can approach the throne of grace with confidence. 

There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us.  He will meet all of our needs, both spiritual and temporal, in abundance, and answer all of our prayers.  We have become heirs to salvation and all of its many benefits.  The everlasting Kingdom of God will be our eternal legacy for our righteousness and obedience.  Very soon now, Jesus Christ will gather us to Himself for all of eternity. 

Jude 1:24-25 “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,  To the only wise God our Saviour, [be] glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”   

We now have a bright and promising future.  The Lord has great plans in store for us as His followers on this earth.  We have divine destinies to embrace that will impact the fate of all mankind.  We will resume Christ’s ministry on this earth and usher in the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God.  Nothing will be impossible for us.  The Lord will imbue us with a full anointing of His very own power. 

Very soon now we will do the works that Jesus did and even greater works, since He has gone to be with His Father and sent us the Holy Spirit.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and authority and heal the sick of all their diseases.  The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk.  We will set others free from their bondage to sin and evil, and even raise the dead back to life. 

The Lord will protect us from all evil and preserve us blameless until the return of Christ.  He will give His angels charge over us to assist us in all that we do on His behalf.  We will serve our God and His people with genuine love, mercy and compassion and demonstrate God’s power to all those who dwell on this earth.  The Lord will be glorified in His sons and daughters and boast of us to all creation.
 

The Power Of The Gospel 

Luke 4:32 “And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.”   

Jesus came to this earth to save us from all of our sins and to show us God’s way of doing things.  Teaching was a huge part of His ministry.  He preached the coming of the Kingdom of God and urged us to repent of all our sins, so that mankind would no longer walk in darkness and deception and be subject to bondage of any kind.  He wanted to prepare us for eternal life with all of its many benefits. 

Our Lord and Savior had wisdom beyond mere human comprehension, and astounded people wherever He went.  He only spoke what He actually heard from His Father and willingly did all that He was directed to do.  He gave people advice about spiritual and temporal matters and urged them to trust in their Creator to meet all of their needs.  He taught love of God and love of neighbor as a basic premise. 

Christ did not negate any aspect of the law; He came to fulfill it in its entirety by His very own example.  He urged all men to be righteous, loving and obedient, so that things would go well with them.  He stressed obedience and respect to those in authority, and insisted on generosity to those in need.  He encouraged peace with all men, wherever possible, and promoted unity among His followers. 

Jesus always preached with a degree of power and authority that captivated and made an impression on His audience.  Men knew that they had heard from almighty God whenever He spoke.  His words changed lives and impacted all of mankind.  His listeners never came away from His teaching the same as they had been before they heard Him.  The anointing that operated through Christ deeply touched them. 

John 3:5-6 “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. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” 

Jesus Christ urged all of His disciples to be born again of water and the Holy Spirit.  He encouraged baptism for the forgiveness of their sins and stressed love and obedience to all those whom He met.  He recommended that men lay down all of their carnality and selfish soul ambitions and follow after Him. 

He knew that they would have to learn to imitate His ways and follow all of His guidance and direction. 

Our Lord and Savior had a loyal and devoted following, and He launched many of His disciples into public ministry while He still walked among us.  They worked mighty exploits in His name by the power of the Holy Spirit.  They preached the good news of the Kingdom of God, healed the sick and cast out demons.  Christ’s efforts on this earth were multiplied exponentially whenever He dispatched others in His authority. 

So it is with us today; if we are sincere believers, we are the Body of Christ on this earth – His hands, feet and voice.  We serve as His ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and deliver men, women, and even children, from their bondage to sin and evil.  We preach the Gospel and baptize countless numbers to our faith.  We make eternal life available to all those who are receptive to it and impact the fate of all mankind. 

Matthew 4:16-17 “The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 

The Gospel of Jesus Christ has the inherent ability to set men free and release abundant life to them.  Jesus did not come to this earth to condemn us, but to save all of mankind.  He was our perfect role model for righteousness and godliness and served as our sacrificial substitute.  He, who knew no sin, became sin for us so that we could inherit eternal life with all of its blessings. 

Our Lord and Savior emphasized repentance from all of our sins and the renewal of our minds in the truth.  He wanted men to put their carnality aside and walk in true spirituality as new creatures.  He taught love, obedience and holiness to all those He met and set them free from all of their oppression.  Christ had a destiny to redeem mankind from spiritual and physical death. 

Jesus was the light who came into this world to dispel the darkness.  He destroyed the works of the devil, so that we could be set free from bondage to sin and evil.  He preached the coming of the Kingdom of God in real power and authority, and made men eager for its appearance.  He promised that our heavenly Father would actually come and dwell with His people for all eternity. 

Christ never led His followers astray.  He clearly outlined all that was expected of them.  He fostered peace and unity among His disciples and forewarned them of all that was to come.  They always knew where they stood with Jesus, and He made certain that they felt His love and compassion.  The Lord was an excellent leader and those who walked in His ways were blessed as a result.
 

Healing Power 

Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”  

It is important to remember that Jesus could work no significant miracles, signs and wonders until He was baptized in the River Jordan.  He launched His public ministry by being obedient and submissive to His heavenly Father.  He only said and did what He heard the Father tell Him to do.  He operated in the power of the Holy Spirit of God and was able to perform mighty feats. 

God anointed Jesus to heal the sick of all their afflictions as a tangible demonstration of His love, mercy and compassion for His people.  The blind were able to see; the deaf could hear; and the lame walked.  Christ cast out demons that held men in bondage to sin and evil and set them free.  Wherever He went, there were supernatural events that occurred to glorify our God. 

In most cases, our Lord healed without effort of any kind on His part.  The dynamic healing power simply came forth from Him whenever He was in the presence of disease and affliction.  However, in some instances, He rebuked the evil spirits until they loosed their victims.  At other times, Jesus forgave people all of their sins and their infirmities left them never to return again. 

Mark 3:10-11 “For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.  And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.”  

In still other cases, the Lord took a more hands-on approach.  He mixed His spittle with dirt to make salve to heal the blind.  He touched many who were afflicted and disease left them.  Christ even raised the dead by the power of His words that lined up with those of almighty God.  He breathed His Spirit and life into all those He encountered and His divine authority was beyond dispute.   

The most dramatic cases of healing involved a combination of faith on the part of the individual and an intimate encounter with the living God.  Jairus’ daughter was healed by the faith of her father.  The Roman centurion claimed healing vicariously for his sick servant.  The woman with the issue of blood had strong faith coupled with the audacity to physically touch Christ’s garments. 

Spirits of infirmity and affliction had no recourse but to flee in Jesus’ presence.  He healed demoniacs at every turn.  He rebuked fevers and they left people.  He stopped convulsions and the victims were healed and left intact.  Everywhere Jesus went, healing and deliverance followed Him.  He was only limited in His ability to perform miracles when fear, doubt or unbelief were present. 

Luke 6:18-19 “And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed [them] all.”   

Christ’s healing power was both tangible and substantive.  He could actually feel it leaving Him as He walked through the multitudes that required His help.  The Bible describes it as healing “virtue” that was present in His person and flowed through Him to others.  We know that it was the anointing of almighty God Himself to work miracles on behalf of His people.    

Jesus always healed others.  No one was turned away or left untouched.  He had great love, mercy and compassion for the multitudes, and He could personally relate to their pain and suffering.  Even though they exhausted Him with their endless needs, Christ still managed to heal them all.  He was faithful to minister to both their spiritual and temporal requirements.  

The same ability to heal and cast out demons that rested on Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry resides in His people today.  The Body of Christ has a sacred responsibility to heal and deliver just as our Savior once did.  The Holy Spirit operates through us to touch the lives of others, so they are forever changed.  We can walk just as Christ did, now and in all the days to come.

Matthew 15:30-31 “And great multitudes came unto him, having with them [those that were] lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them: Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.” 

Illness and demonic oppression are no problem for almighty God.  He has created us to be in perfect health and it is His express will that we all be whole and intact at all times.  Our God is not glorified in affliction, nor does He ever bring it on His people to teach them something.  He is a good and merciful God, and He wants all of us to turn to Him and trust that He will keep us well. 

The Lord wants us to prosper and be in health just as our souls – our minds, wills and emotions – prosper.  He wants His people to be at their best at all times, so that they can serve one another with joy and vitality.   The very same healing anointing that flowed through Jesus Christ is available to us today.   Believers can lay hands on the sick and they will be healed of all their diseases.  

We can and should cast out demons in Christ’s name and deliver men of all their oppression to sin and evil.  We can set the captives free to the divine health and wellness that is promised to us.  The Lord is coming back for a people to inhabit His everlasting Kingdom, and there will be no sick and afflicted among us when He gathers us in.  We will all be alive and healthy for all time.
 

The Ultimate Power 

John 10:17-18 “Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.  No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”   

Jesus knew His true identity and the nature of His destiny, despite the fact that He was flesh and blood just like us.  He came to this earth for a specific reason, and He was totally successful in all aspects of His public ministry.  His ultimate success, however, lay in the fact that He was able to lay down His life as our sacrificial substitute and set all of mankind free once and for all. 

He took on our all of our sin debt, as if it were His very own, and actually became a curse for us, so that we could be blessed.  He endured humiliation, torture and an agonizing crucifixion to redeem us from all of our transgressions.  We have received the gift of eternal life only because Christ willingly and obediently suffered and died to pay the penalty of death for all our sinfulness.  

There is no greater power than that which was demonstrated at the cross.  Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, accomplished the seemingly impossible for us.  He was the perfect Lamb of God, totally sinless in every way, yet He became sin for us and then bore its penalty in His own flesh.  Christ voluntarily became a sacrifice for our sins, so that we would not have to endure death. 

The grave could not hold Him, however.  He was raised again from the dead after three days, and He sits at the right hand of the Father in majesty and glory.  Jesus is ruler of both heaven and earth because of His perfect obedience.  He continues to manifest Himself through His people who walk in His name.  Our Lord and Savior works in us and through us to impact this entire earth. 

Hebrews 2:14-15 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;  And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”   

Jesus Christ knew that there was no hope for mankind unless He stepped up and became like us in every way.  He laid down His deity when He came to this earth and was born of a woman, human in all respects.  He suffered the same temptation to sin that we do, but He was perfect in every way.  Yet, Jesus took on all of our infirmities, carried our diseases, and bore our sins in His very own flesh.   

He was betrayed by one of His own, and wrongfully accused of blasphemy and treason.  He was humiliated and severely scourged by His captors.  He was forced to carry His very own cross and sentenced to a death with common thieves.  Christ was an innocent Lamb of God, sacrificed for all of our transgressions.  He willingly laid down His own life, so that we could inherit eternal life through Him. 

Jesus made an open show of Satan and conquered him once and for all at the cross.  Had He not been obedient to His heavenly Father, He would never have been able to deliver us from the penalty of death that hung over us all of our lives.  We would still be in bondage to fear, were it not for our Lord and Savior.  He took the sting out of death for all of mankind when He rose again from the dead. 

Colossians 2:13-15 “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; [And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”   

The sacrifice of Christ Jesus sets us free from the law of sin and death.  Even though we are not worthy in our own right, His precious Blood covers us for all of our iniquity.  We are joint-heirs with Him to all the promises of God for righteousness.  There is no way that the devil can rob us of our blessings. We are more than conquerors; we can rule and reign in this life and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity. 

Jesus nailed all our sins and transgressions to His cross once and for all.  He overcame the devil and all his minions on our behalf.  He restored us to right standing with our heavenly Father, so that we can approach the throne of grace without fear, shame or condemnation.  We are now the actual sons and daughters of almighty God and we are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.   

There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us.  He wants to provide us with life in abundance to the overflow.  He will meet all of our needs according to His riches in glory and protect us from all harm and defilement.  He has great plans for our future.  Now that we are reconciled to Him, He can plan on dwelling with us for all of eternity in the Kingdom of God when it comes to this earth. 

Almighty God wants to gather us to Himself in an intimate relationship forever more.  Soon there will no longer be a separation between God and man ever again.  He will take an active interest in all the details of our personal lives and make certain that His people are always healthy, happy and prosperous.  We will worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, as He desires, and He will be the focal point of our existence.   

Romans 1:3-6 “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared [to be] the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:” 

Jesus Christ was a son of Abraham, a direct descendant of King David in His human flesh.  He was conceived with royal blood by the power of the Holy Spirit of God Himself.  All of us who believe in Him and have been redeemed in His name, share in His lineage and in His eternal inheritance.  We have been saved by His agonizing death and glorious resurrection to eternal life with all of its many benefits. 

We have divine destinies to fulfill that will impact the fate of all mankind in the very near future.  If we have sanctified ourselves of all known sin and consecrated our personal lives in service to God and others, we can be used mightily in the critical days ahead.  The Lord will imbue us with His very own divine power and authority to take back this earth for the Kingdom of God even before Christ returns to us. 

The Gospel will be preached to every race, tongue and nation of this world.  We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead.  Christ’s Kingdom will be our everlasting legacy for righteousness and obedience.  We will judge both men and angels, and rule and reign with Him.  We will be appointed kings and priests of God’s people, and teach all mankind how to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers.
 

The King Of Glory 

Psalm 24:7-8 “Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who [is] this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.” 

Jesus Christ is the King of glory who brought salvation to all of mankind.  He is our mediator and our protector.  He always looks out for the best interest of His people.  He intercedes for us in the throne room of God and oversees all that occurs both in heaven and on the earth.  His powerful voice shakes up the entire creation, and He is captain of all the angelic hosts. 

There is a fierce battle of good vs. evil being fought in the heavenlies right now.  Jesus Christ and all His angels are waging war against the devil and all his minions.  The fate of the entire human race is at stake.  Very soon now, the Lord will defeat all His enemies in the wrath of His coming and eradicate all forms of wickedness and evil off the face of the earth for all time. 

Christ will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness.  There will be nothing left that remains to defile and contaminate either man or God.  Satan will be cast into the abyss and the Lord will judge His people to determine who is righteous and who deserves punishment.  He will gather all the faithful and banish the unrepentant wrongdoers to the unquenchable lake of fire.   

Jesus is a fair and just judge, and a righteous King.  He will rule and reign with a rod of iron to protect His people.  There will be peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for all those who enter into the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God.  Nothing will disturb the serenity of life there.  The Lord Himself will dwell with us for all eternity. 

Matthew 25:31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:” 

Our Lord and Savior is soon returning to consummate our redemption in spirit, soul and body.  However, He will not appear as a meek and mild Lamb of God this time.  He is determined to take vengeance on all of His enemies and smite them in the wrath of His coming.  He will destroy all wickedness and evil and banish Satan and all his demons to the bottomless pit. 

The Lord will judge the living and the dead, men and angels, His church and all the nations of the world.  No one will escape His scrutiny, nor be able to persuade Him to lower any of His perfect, impeccable standards for us.  We will pass before His throne of glory to determine our righteousness or our guilt.  We will all be judged according to our works in the flesh. 

Those who are wicked and unrepentant will perish in their sinfulness and rebellion.  They will be cast into the unquenchable lake of fire with all other wrongdoers.  There will be no second chances given to anyone.  Jesus Christ will gather all of the righteous to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God.  We will thrive in His awesome presence for all of eternity. 

Luke 19:37-38 “And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed [be] the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.”  

Jesus Christ is, was, and always will be the everlasting King of glory who came in the name of the Lord to impact both the heavens and the earth with His awesome power.  No ordinary human being could have ever accomplished all that Christ did as the Son of God who was made flesh.  He redeemed all mankind in His infinite love, mercy and compassion for the human race. 

Our Lord and Savior laid down His very own life, so that we could be set free from all our bondage to sin and evil.  He saved us from the penalty of death by taking on all of our sin debt as His own.  He was our sacrificial substitute and set all the captives free to receive eternal life.  Because of Him, we have a bright and promising future as the sons and daughters of God. 

Very soon now, Jesus Christ will return in all of His majesty to rule and reign in His everlasting Kingdom on this earth.  He will be a fair judge, a righteous king and a generous benefactor to His people.  He will make certain that we are protected from all harm and safe from defilement.  No wickedness and evil, nor death and disease, will contaminate our lives ever again. 

We will give Him all the glory and honor, praise and gratitude that He deserves.  Christ will rule and reign over all the nations of this world.  Our heavenly Father will boast of Him and accord Him the highest degree of favor because of all that He has done for His people.  Soon every knee will bow, and every tongue proclaim, that “Jesus is Lord over all of creation.”
 

Seated At The Right Hand Of Power 

Hebrews 1:1-3 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;”   

Jesus Christ was God in all respects, and He was with His Father from the very foundation of the world.  He is the Word of God by whom all things were made.  Yet He laid down His deity and humbled Himself to come to this earth as a mere man.  He temporarily emptied Himself of His divine attributes, so that He could become one of us.  It took one perfect man to redeem the entire human race. 

He, who knew no sin whatsoever, actually became sin for us and then suffered its penalty of death in His own flesh.  Jesus took on all of our transgressions, as if they were His very own, and then paid for our sin debt so that we could be set free.  He was humiliated, tortured and crucified, so that we would not have to endure the same fate.  He was our sacrificial substitute, the only perfect Lamb of God.   

Our Lord and Savior taught us that love is the most important thing that could ever motivate us in our walk with God.  He demonstrated that type of unselfish, agape love by giving His own life in exchange for ours.  He is our role model for righteousness, love and obedience.  He was the express image of His Father at all times, and has proven Himself worthy and deserving of all glory, praise and honor.   

Jesus Christ fulfilled His divine destiny to perfection.  He saved all of mankind with His death on the cross and brought us eternal life through His resurrection from the dead.  He spoiled all principalities and powers and overcame sin, death and the grave.  Jesus defeated the devil and took back dominion over the entire earth and restored it to us.  He is now seated at the right hand of God in all His majesty. 

Hebrews 10:12-14 “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.”   

Jesus Christ was the Son of almighty God made man for our express benefit.  He was sent to the earth realm to defeat the works of the devil and to redeem all of mankind once and for all.  He offered up His very own body as the ultimate sacrifice for our sinfulness.  He suffered, died, was buried and rose again from the dead, so that we could be reconciled with our heavenly Father. 

Christ is now seated in majesty at the right hand of God.  All power has been given to Him both in heaven and on the earth.  He is captain of the heavenly hosts and the Head of His Body – the church.  He is above all, and in all, things simultaneously.  It is through His inimitable power and glory that all of His enemies will be made His footstool, and all of His followers will be perfected. 

Very soon now, Christ will return to us to receive His everlasting Kingdom and to begin His millennial rule and reign.  He will judge all men and even angels to determine who has been righteous and obedient and who has been sinful and rebellious.  Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim, that “Jesus is Lord over all creation.”  We will give Him all the praise and honor He deserves. 

Luke 22:69 “Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.”   

Our heavenly Father has exalted Jesus for all that He did on our behalf.  His earthly ministry was a total success, and He is now seated at the right hand of God in power.  He rules over both heaven and earth, and of His Kingdom there will be no end.  His followers have been imbued with His very own anointing, so that they can complete His ministry in this world today, even prior to His return to us. 

We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself – joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness.  We have been given a divine commission to reclaim the earth for our Lord and Savior.  We can share our faith with conviction and gather in the full, end-time harvest of souls.  We will heal the sick of all afflictions, cast out demons, and even raise the dead back to life in Jesus’ name.   

Nothing will be impossible to us if we appropriate our full measure of divine power and authority in the critical days that lie ahead.  The same Holy Spirit that rested on Jesus Christ will abide in us and do the same works that He did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with His Father.  We will impact the fate of all of humanity and usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God with a flourish. 

John 17:5-7 “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.”   

Jesus Christ was clothed in glory from the foundation of the world.  He is the creator, the savior and the intercessor for His people on this earth.  Our heavenly Father is exceedingly proud of His beloved Son.  He denied Himself the privileges of deity, and emptied Himself out for the sake of all mankind.  He is now seated in power and glory at the very right hand of God in the throne room of heaven.   

Those of us who have been faithful to serve the Lord and minister to His people in these last days will soon receive generous rewards for our efforts.  Christ will appoint us to be kings and priests of almighty God.  We will judge both men and angels and have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth.  The Lord will boast of us to all creation and magnify our names for all eternity. 

All men will look up to us as we teach them how to dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity.  We will enforce Kingdom principles of fairness and justice in all of our affairs.  We will always be godly role models for others, and demonstrate how to worship God in Spirit and in truth.  We will celebrate all of the Lord’s sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts. 

Our heavenly Father will be infinitely pleased with us, and take an active interest in all the details of our personal lives.  He will supply all of our needs – both spiritual and temporal – in abundance.  We will be the center of all His attention and He will be our focal point, as well.  We will be glorified together with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as He rules and reigns over all the nations of the world. 

 

Chapter 3 - The Blood And The Name 

Hebrews 9:22-24 “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. [It was] therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, [which are] the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:” 

The Lord gave men the old Mosaic Law so that they would adhere to His perfect, impeccable standards of morality, rather than commit a variety of sins that only estranged Him further from them.  However, if they disobeyed any one of His commandments, they violated them all.  There was no way that any human being could ever be reconciled to God in their own strength. 

Under the terms of the Old Testament Law a blood sacrifice had to be offered up to atone for the sins of God’s people on a regular basis.  The priest would have to cleanse himself of all defilement and enter into the temple’s Holy of Holies several times a year.  He would then sacrifice sheep, bulls, calves or goats in exchange for all the transgressions of the congregation. 

These sacrifices never permanently satisfied the terms of the Law which specified the shedding of blood.  They had to be offered again and again because sin was recurring.  When Christ came to this earth, He actually took on the sins of all mankind, as if they were His very own.  He willingly laid down His own life as a Blood sacrifice for the full remission of all our sins.  

It was not necessary that Jesus perform frequent, sacrificial rituals to the Father to pay our sin debt in its entirety.  With His one perfect act of obedience, He satisfied all the requirements of the Law and restored men to right standing with almighty God.  We should no longer have a sin consciousness.  Christ took on all our shame, guilt and condemnation in His own flesh. 

Galatians 3:13-14 “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” 

The Lord suffered an agonizing death, so that we would not have to endure the same fate.  Then He rose again, as the firstborn of many sons and daughters of God.  He conquered sin, death and the grave, so that we could also be overcomers in this life.  He spoiled all powers and principalities, and took back man’s dominion over the entire earth from Satan, the enemy of our souls.   

Jesus Christ paid the full price for our sinfulness once and for all time.  He actually became a curse for us, so that we could be blessed in abundance.  He is our redeemer, our mediator and our intercessor, and we have become the righteousness of God in Him.  We are joint-heirs to all the promises and seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. 

If we have made Jesus our personal Lord and Savior, we are saved to eternal life with all of its many benefits.  There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us.  He will meet all of our needs, both spiritual and temporal.  We will dwell forever in His awesome presence in the Kingdom of God.  Soon there will be no more separation between God and man ever again. 

We now have a permanent covenant of peace with our Creator.  Health and longevity, peace and prosperity, joy and freedom are all well within our reach.  The Lord will treat us as He did faithful Abraham, and grant us many temporal and spiritual blessings.  No enemy will be able to stand against us.  We will reign now in this life, and in the Kingdom to come, for all eternity. 

Hebrews 9:11-14 “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption [for us]. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” 

There is no way that any man can ever be righteous in his own strength under the terms of the Law.  Sin requires the shedding of blood to remit it totally and completely.  Jesus fulfilled the requirements of the Law once and for all time with His death and resurrection.  He was the perfect sacrifice that was needed to buy back our innocence, so that we could be blessed in abundance. 

We have received a great and wonderful gift through the merits of Jesus Christ.  His shed Blood has restored our righteousness once and for all.  Now all that we have to do is sanctify ourselves from all our carnality and selfish soul ambitions so that we can follow in His footsteps.   We have divine destinies to fulfill that will have a major impact on the future of all mankind. 

If we are consecrated and dedicated to His holy purpose, we will resume Christ’s ministry on this earth even before He returns to us.  We will be imbued with divine power so we can serve the Lord and His people.  We will share our faith as He arranges our contacts, and baptize many souls in the name of Jesus Christ.  We will heal the sick, cast out demons, and even raise the dead. 

Nothing will be impossible to us if we do it in Jesus’ name.  He will work through us to demonstrate His mercy, love and compassion for the entire human race.  We will reflect His awesome power and authority in everything that we say and do.  We will confront world governments and bring peace to the earth.  We will restore all of creation back to its original beauty and balance.   

Philippians 2:9-11 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”   

The name of Jesus Christ is above every other name both in heaven and on the earth.  He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Word of God that was present from the very foundation of the world.  He is Faithful and True, the Prince of Peace, our Lord and Savior and our Righteous King.  Almighty God has exalted Him because of all that He is, and all that He has accomplished for us. 

Christ paid our sin debt in its entirety with His very own Blood.  He restored our right standing with God and gave us eternal life in the process.  He defeated the works of the devil and made an open show of all principalities and powers with His suffering and death on the cross.  He took back dominion over the entire earth and gave it back to mankind where it rightfully belongs. 

We have been given divine power and authority to serve the Lord and His people.  We will challenge world governments to abolish war, violence and conflict from their affairs with one another.  We will eradicate poverty and lack and teach all men to share their material resources.  We will reverse the adverse effects of pollution and restore all creation to its original beauty and balance. 

Very soon now, Jesus Christ will return to this earth to receive His everlasting Kingdom.  He will judge both men and angels to determine who is righteous and who deserves everlasting punishment.  Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim, that Jesus is “Lord over all of creation.”  He will be glorified for all of eternity and rule and reign over all the nations of this world.


The Ultimate Sacrifice 

Hebrews 10:19-22Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And [having] an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.”    

Almighty God knew that we were without hope under the terms of the Old Testament Law.  The blood of sheep, bulls, calves and goats was insufficient to atone for man’s sinfulness and restore us to righteousness.  He sent His only Son to this world to redeem us from all our transgressions.  Had it not been for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we would all be lost in our sins for all of eternity.  

Jesus came to this earth as a mere man and relinquished His deity to become one of us.  He was born of a woman by the power of the Holy Spirit and led a perfect, sinless life.  He, who knew no sin, actually became sin for us, so that He could pay our sin debt in its entirety.  Jesus laid down His own life as a Blood sacrifice in atonement for the sins of all mankind – past, present and future.  

He suffered and died an agonizing death, so that we could have life in abundance to the overflow.  He restored us to right standing with our heavenly Father through the offering of His own flesh on our behalf.  There is no longer a separation between God and man.  We are new creatures in Christ.  Our sins are now removed far from us, and the Lord sees us as covered by the Blood of Jesus.  

We need not experience shame, guilt or condemnation any longer.  We can approach the throne of grace with all our needs, in full assurance that they will be met in abundance.  The Lord views us as His beloved sons and daughters and there is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us.  We have grace and unmerited favor with Him that only our faith in Jesus Christ can provide us. 

1Peter 1:2 “Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.”  

The Lord had a perfect rescue plan in place from the very moment that Adam rebelled and sinned in the Garden of Eden.  He was not content to abandon mankind in their sinfulness.  He was determined to set things right legally and restore us to right standing with Him, so that there is no longer a separation between God and man.  He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth to buy back our righteousness. 

Almighty God knew that it would take another human being, who was perfect in every way, to set the record straight and redeem all of mankind from the curse that sin brought.  Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a woman, just as we are.  Yet He never sinned, so He could be the perfect Lamb of God who willingly and obediently offered up His own life in atonement for all of our transgressions. 

The Lord laid the iniquity of all mankind on Jesus Christ at the cross.  He, who knew no sin, became sin for us and then suffered its penalty of death.  We do not have to do anything other than repent from the heart; believe in His name; and confess Him as our personal Lord and Savior, in order to be redeemed to eternal life.  Christ died, so that we can be spared that same fate, and receive life in abundance to the overflow. 

Ephesians 1:4-7 “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;”   

We were called, elect and chosen from the beginning of time to be in an intimate relationship with our God.  Sin may have temporarily separated us, but the Blood of Jesus Christ bridged the gap and restored us to our right standing with our Creator.  If we truly believe in Him, and all that He accomplished with His death on the cross, we are saved to eternal life with all its many benefits.   

Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice just for us.  Our righteousness is now secure and we have grace, or unmerited favor, with our God.  There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us.  We can approach our heavenly Father with every need and know that it will be satisfied.  We are now actually seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of almighty God Himself. 

The Lord views us as He does Jesus; we are holy and perfect in His eyes.  Christ dwells in us, and we abide in Him.  If we imitate His laid down life, we will be imbued with power and authority from on high to operate in His name.  We will do the very works that Jesus did while He was on the earth.  We will preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead. 

We have a covenant of peace with God and we have become joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness.  The Kingdom of God will be our eternal legacy.  We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory.  The Lord will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters and shower us with many blessings.  We will dwell in His awesome presence and thrive for all of eternity.
 

The Blood Cleanses Us 

1Peter 1:18-21 “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”   

Jesus Christ was ordained from before the very foundation of the world to serve as our Lord and Savior.  He was the perfect Lamb of God, the only suitable sacrifice that could be made for the propitiation of our sins.  He became one of us and led a sinless life Himself while He was here on this earth.  He served as our substitute in paying the penalty of death that was leveled against all of mankind. 

He suffered, died and was buried to redeem all of mankind from the curse of the law.  Then He rose again to glory, so that we could experience the newness of life.  Our Lord and Savior bought back our innocence and secured our inheritance in the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God.  Very soon now, He will return to this earth to complete our redemption in spirit, soul and body, so that we are like Him in every way. 

We are not righteous in our own strength, no matter what we do to appease God for our sinfulness.  There is no way that we can purchase our salvation either.  We are cleansed only by the Blood of Jesus Christ, which was shed for us in remission for all of our sins – past, present and future.  Through Christ, we have been made the righteousness of God and heirs to all of the blessings of Abraham. 

Our hope and faith should rest in all that Jesus accomplished on our behalf.  We can have real confidence for our future.  Because of His obedience, we are now in right standing with almighty God and we have become His very own sons and daughters.  We are actually seated with Christ in heavenly places.  There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us if we believe the truth and walk in His ways. 

1John 1:9 “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”   

Our Lord and Savior is our righteous role model and our example for perfect obedience.  He operated in love at all times and walked in light in everything that He thought, said and did.  He received guidance and direction by the power of the Holy Spirit of almighty God Himself.  All things were revealed to Him, so that He could be totally effective during His earthly ministry.   

If we have fellowship with God, then we will also learn to walk in the light.  We can overcome all the darkness that surrounds us and appropriate Christ’s righteousness by faith.  If we should slip and miss the mark, we can confess our sins and be certain that we will be forgiven once again.  There is no valid reason why we should ever be separated from our heavenly Father. 

The Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us of all sin, so that we are uncompromisingly righteous in God’s eyes.  He sees us as His very own sons and daughters and He is pleased when we dwell in peace and unity.  We have divine destinies to fulfill that require us to be unified in the Holy Spirit.  We can accomplish a great deal more by working cooperatively than we can as individuals.   

Revelation 1:5-6 “And from Jesus Christ, [who is] the faithful witness, [and] the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” 

Jesus Christ was the firstborn of many sons and daughters of almighty God.  He is the captain of our salvation, our role model, mediator and intercessor with His heavenly Father.  When the Lord looks at us, He sees the Blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses us of all our sinfulness and washes us clean from all of our ancestral iniquity.  The Lord will never impute our sins to us ever again. 

It is now possible for us to approach the throne of His grace without fear, shame or condemnation of any kind.  Almighty God always welcomes our advances, and desires our intimacy as His beloved children.  The Lord will hear all of our prayers and grant all our requests.  He is able to provide exceeding abundantly all that we could ever ask or think according to the power that works in us. 

We will prevail in this life and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity.  We will dwell in the very presence of God Himself in peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom.  The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that was taken from us over the years.  He will make certain that all of our needs are met in abundance. 

If we have been faithful to serve the Lord and His people, we will have generous rewards for all of our efforts.  Jesus Christ will appoint us kings and priests.  We will judge both men and angels, and share in His honor and glory.  We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance.  We will actually rule and reign with Christ over all of the nations of this world.
 

Partaking Of The Blood

Matthew 26:26-28 “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed [it], and brake [it], and gave [it] to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave [it] to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”   

The Lord’s Supper was celebrated by Jesus and His disciples as a type and shadow of what was to come.  He offered up bread and likened it to His own Body that would be crucified for our express benefit on the cross.  He offered the wine in commemoration of His Blood, which was to be shed for all of mankind as a propitiation for all of our sins and ancestral iniquity. 

Christ urged all of us to do the same in remembrance of Him after He was gone.  Every time we break bread and drink wine in His holy name, we show deference and respect for all that He accomplished on our behalf.  We vicariously partake of His suffering and death, and rejoice in His resurrection from the dead by taking the communion elements in a worthy manner. 

Jesus is actually present in the bread and the wine, as a tangible sign to us.  He wants us to reflect on all that He has done by celebrating His life and death.  We are now the righteousness of God by faith and heirs to all of the promises.  There is no longer a separation between God and man.  We are brand new creatures in Christ, and He dwells in each and every one of us. 

1Corinthians 10:16 “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?”  

We are now crucified with Christ, metaphorically speaking, and we acknowledge all His accomplishments by partaking of His Body and Blood.  We actually commune with Him in the Lord’s Supper, and we should show proper deference and respect to our Savior.  We must never receive the sacramental elements without being fully prepared to recognize them for all that they represent. 

The communion bread and wine should be handled circumspectly because of what they signify.  Jesus Christ was the least deserving of punishment and death than any other human being.  He was totally sinless, yet He actually became sin for us and then suffered its penalty of death with His very own Body and Blood.   There is no greater sacrifice that has ever been made by anyone else. 

When we eat the bread and drink the wine of the Lord’s Supper, we share vicariously in all of His pain and suffering and rejoice in His subsequent victory over sin, death and the grave.  We demonstrate that we are sincere followers of the Lord, Jesus Christ, and show Him the gratitude and honor that He deserves.  His Body and Blood strengthen our spirit and fortify us against all evil. 

John 6:53-56 “Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.”   

The Lord was most specific about His followers celebrating His Blood sacrifice.  He insisted that unless we partake of His Body and Blood that we have no part of Him.  He wants to be so close to His people that we actually dwell in Him, and He is an integral part of us.  When we eat the bread of His Body and drink the wine of His Blood, we become one with Him and through Him.

If we are sincere believers in Jesus Christ, and all that He did for us at the cross, then we should have no problem commemorating His death and resurrection with the consecrated bread and wine.  We should be grateful for the opportunity to acknowledge Him and His sacrifice on our behalf.  We should eagerly approach the Lord’s Supper with gratitude and praise in our hearts. 

Believers have received the gift of eternal life because of all that He did for us.  We are no longer lost in our sins and subject to the penalty of death.  There is no more separation between God and man.  We have been restored to a covenant relationship with our Creator.  The Body and Blood of Christ assure us that we are now innocent and have His resurrection life residing in us forever.
 

The New Covenant 

Romans 11:27 “For this [is] my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”   

We have an eternal covenant with almighty God because of all that His Son, Jesus Christ, did for us.  Our sins are all forgiven and we are now in right standing with our heavenly Father.  There is no longer a need for us to atone for our own sinfulness.  The Lord can relate to us on an intimate basis now and shower us with everlasting blessings, as He has always desired to do.   

In return, we must assume our divine destinies and serve the Lord and His people, as we are ordained to do.  He is in need of our help in rescuing others from darkness and destruction.  We should share our beliefs and break the yokes of bondage to sin and evil off of them.  We will work mighty miracles, signs and wonders to attest to our faith and see the entire planet transformed. 

Our God will soon gather us to Himself for all of eternity.  He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us.  He will change these mortal bodies that are susceptible to disease and death into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in health and vitality.  We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom. 

The Kingdom of God will be heaven on the earth for all those who are worthy to enter into it.  There will be no more war, violence and conflict anywhere; the entire world will be peaceful and serene.  Social injustice will finally disappear; all men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.  Poverty and lack will be eradicated; all of our needs will be met in abundance.   

Hebrews 12:22-24 “But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel.” 

We will see the power and glory of almighty God manifested as never before in the days that lie ahead.  He will make certain that we all reach the full stature of Jesus Christ.  We have divine destinies which must be fulfilled in order to bring heaven itself to this earth realm.  We will operate in genuine Christ-like power and authority to usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God. 

We will preach the Gospel throughout the entire world to every man, woman and child.  We will baptize countless numbers, so that they can receive eternal life.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil.  We will even raise the dead back to life as a powerful demonstration of God’s mercy and compassion. 

We are the church of the living God – just men made perfect – and nothing will be impossible to us.  We will change the fate of this entire earth.  We will challenge all world governments to adopt godly principles.  We will eliminate all poverty and lack.  We will restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance, and ensure that God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven. 

Hebrews 13:20-21 “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen.”  

The Lord, Jesus Christ, will make certain that His disciples complete His earthly ministry to perfection in the critical days that lie ahead.  We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with genuine power and conviction and works miracles, signs and wonders in His holy name.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions; cast out demons that hold men in bondage; and even raise the dead back to life once again. 

We will take back our dominion over the entire earth and prepare it for heaven to be ushered in here.  There will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere.  Poverty and lack will be abolished, as all men learn to share their material resources with one another.  Social injustice will be eradicated once and for all time.  Every form of contamination and defilement will be removed far from us, as we usher in the Kingdom.   

The Lord will have us bring love, peace and unity to this earth realm even before He returns.  All men will dwell together as brothers and sisters and be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.  The government of almighty God and His justice system will prevail.  The kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  He will ensure that only righteous principles are in force at all times.  

The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems.  It will be paradise on this earth for both God and man.  The Lord will supply all of our needs in abundance even before we ask Him.  His laws will be written on our minds and in our hearts.  We will dwell with both men and angels in His awesome presence, and give Him all the thanks and praise, honor and glory He deserves.   

Ephesians 2:13-18 “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition [between us]; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, [even] the law of commandments [contained] in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, [so] making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.  For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.”   

We have a permanent covenant of peace with almighty God through the merits of the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ.  While we were once at enmity with Him because of Adam’s sin and rebellion, Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf has torn down all of the partitions that existed between God and man, so that we are now one with Him in an intimate relationship, as He desires.  

Believers can commune with God through the power of His Holy Spirit and receive wisdom and revelation, guidance and direction, to be successful in all that we think, say and do.  We can be totally righteous in His eyes and no longer have our sins imputed to us.  We are heirs to great and precious promises through our faith, and no good thing will ever be withheld from us. 

There is no longer an estrangement between God and mankind.  We have been restored to our right standing with our Creator and He has wonderful plans and purposes for our lives.  He will soon gather us to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God on this earth.  He will supply all of our needs in abundance and change our mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms. 

We will dwell in His awesome presence and He will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters.  The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore anything that has been stolen from us.  He will protect us from all harm and provide us with peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for all of eternity.
 

Life Through The Name Of Jesus

John 20:31 “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”  

The name of Jesus Christ is above every other name.  He is exalted in all of creation because of who He is and what He has accomplished.  He is the Word of God who was with the Father from the very foundation of the world and by Him, all things were made.  He is our Lord and Savior, the Redeemer of all mankind.  He is the King of kings and Lord of lords who will rule and reign for all eternity. 

If we believe in His name and appropriate the righteousness that He has bought and paid for on our behalf, we will be saved to eternal life with all of its many benefits.  We will be able to overcome the world, our flesh and the devil because He has made it possible for us to be more than conquerors in His mighty name.  He is our role model and mediator with the Father and always intercedes for us. 

When we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we are born again in our spirit man.  We become brand new creatures in Christ.  Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is totally transformed until it becomes godly.  We imitate the laid down life of Christ Himself, and embrace our divine destinies as His goodwill ambassadors for the everlasting Kingdom of God. 

1John 3:23-24 “And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” 

Jesus Christ did not come to this earth to condemn mankind, but to deliver us from our bondage to sin and evil and give us a fresh start.  Through Him, we have received forgiveness for all of our transgressions and the gift of eternal life.  We are now in right standing with God and joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness.  There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us.   

Life in abundance is available to us through Jesus Christ.  We are commanded to believe in His name and to love one another, just as He loved us.  If we do, He will actually come and dwell in us and we will be able to overcome the world, our flesh and the devil through the power of His name.  His very own Holy Spirit will permeate our being, lead and guide us, and leave us changed in every way. 

Christ has given us a divine commission to go forth in His name and make disciples of all men.  We will share the truth of the Gospel of His Kingdom with all those who are willing to listen.  Every man, woman and child will have an equal opportunity to be saved to eternal life with all of its many blessings.  We will demonstrate the love, mercy and compassion of almighty God Himself for His people. 

Whatever we do will be totally successful if we use the power of attorney that has been granted to us in invoking Jesus’ awesome name.  The name of Jesus will cover and protect us in everything that we say and do.  We can reign in this life and in the Kingdom to come if we remember who we are and whom we serve.  We can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us by the power of His holy name.   

Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”  

There is only one name by which we must be saved to eternal life with all of its many blessings.  If we repent of all of our sins; confess Jesus Christ as Lord; and are baptized in His precious name; we are born again in our spirit man.  We become new creatures in Christ and our minds are renewed in the truth.  Our behavior is gradually transformed until it becomes godly.

We can ask for and receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit of God, as well.  The Lord will send His very own Spirit to indwell us.  The Holy Spirit will convict us of all sin and lead and guide us into all truth.  He will strengthen us and help us to overcome any temptation to sin and evil.  We will also develop spiritual fruit – characteristics that are like those of God Himself.

Spiritual fruit will enhance our lives as nothing else can.  Peace, love and joy will soon overtake us.  We will become good and gentle, meek, temperate and longsuffering in our relationships with others.  If we walk in the Holy Spirit instead of our flesh, we will be able to accomplish mighty feats.  We will expand the Kingdom of God on this earth as we are destined to do.
 

Empowered In His Name 

Ephesians 5:17-20 “Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord [is]. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”  

Almighty God created us in His very image and likeness to spend all of eternity with Him.  We are spirit beings having a human experience that requires us to be connected with our God at all times, so that we never lack a power source.  We ought to give Him all the praise, gratitude and honor that He deserves and consecrate ourselves to serve Him with joy and enthusiasm. 

We should seek the Lord for His express will for our lives.  He has ordained us to embrace divine destinies that will impact the entire earth and everyone in it.  We are the sons and daughters of almighty God and He has need of our help in reclaiming this world for the Kingdom of God.  We will overcome all evil with good and prevail in all that we are called to do on His behalf. 

It is not the Lord’s will that anyone perish for lack of knowledge in the truth.  He wants the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached to every race, tongue and nation.  That may seem like an ominous task, but the Lord Himself will arrange our contacts so that we can optimally share our faith.  We will urge others to repent of all their sins and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. 

We will baptize countless numbers in Jesus’ name and make eternal life available to all those who are receptive to it.  We will demonstrate God’s love, mercy and compassion to everyone we meet.  We will heal the sick of their diseases.  The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk.  We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage and even raise the dead. 

Colossians 3:17 “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”  

We will present our bodies as living sacrifices to almighty God and consecrate all of our efforts to doing whatever He calls us to do.  We have sanctified ourselves and been well-schooled in the Lord’s plans and purposes.  He has imbued us with divine power and authority to act in His stead.  We will rescue countless numbers from sin and darkness, and overcome all evil with good. 

Nothing will be impossible to us if we walk in the Holy Spirit instead of our flesh.  We will accomplish mighty feats in Jesus’ name and prepare the hearts of mankind to receive their King.  We will abolish wars and conflict and bring peace to this earth.  There will be no poverty and lack, as we persuade the affluent to share their resources.  Men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect. 

All of creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons and daughters of almighty God to set it free to glorious liberty.  We will command perfect harmony to all the plants and animals and even regulate the climate so that it is temperate and predictable.   We will cancel all the adverse effects of pollution.  There will be no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction.   

The Kingdom of God will be spread to every corner of this earth.  The Lord, Jesus Christ, will return to us and determine who has been righteous and who deserves everlasting punishment.  He will gather the faithful to Himself for all of eternity, but all wrongdoers will be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire.  Christ will be a righteous King and a generous benefactor to all of His people. 

2Thessalonians 1:11-12 “Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of [this] calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of [his] goodness, and the work of faith with power:  That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” 

Believers have been called and chosen from the foundation of the world to impact this generation in the critical days that lie ahead.  We are the actual sons and daughters of almighty God Himself by faith.  We are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ to all the promises for righteousness.  We are kings and priests of God who will lead His people into His everlasting Kingdom on this earth. 

We have sanctified ourselves of all known sin and we are filled with the Holy Spirit of God.  We will operate in divine power and authority and invoke Jesus’ name in everything that we do on His behalf.  We will break yokes of bondage to sin and evil off of others.  We will preach the Gospel with real conviction and gather in the full, end-time harvest of souls that is required. 

Miracles, signs and wonders will attest to our beliefs and demonstrate the inimitable love and mercy of almighty God for His people.  We will manifest His powerful name by healing the sick of all their afflictions.  We will cast out demons and destroy all satanic strongholds that deter our efforts.  We will even raise the dead back to life by the power of Jesus’ holy name. 

We will teach others how to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.  We will judge both men and angels and have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance.  Christ will share His very own honor and glory with us, because we have been faithful to serve Him in all that we say and do.  We will rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world.
 

Signs, Wonders And Miracles In His Name 

Mark 16:15-18 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.    And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”   

Jesus Christ has given believers genuine power and authority to operate in His place in resuming His ministry on this earth where He left off.   He has need of our help in rescuing others from sin and evil, thereby advancing His Kingdom even before He returns to us.  We are to preach the Gospel throughout the entire world and baptize many souls to eternal life, just as we have been. 

Unless men believe the truth and receive forgiveness by the Blood and the name of Jesus Christ, they will perish for all time.  We can appropriate our right standing with almighty God only by faith.  The Word of God sets men free and makes abundant life possible to everyone who is receptive.  All those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life must be given the opportunity for redemption. 

We will demonstrate the very love, mercy and compassion of our Lord and Savior for all mankind.  In His name, we will heal the sick of all their afflictions.  The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk through our efforts.  We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage, and even raise the dead back to life.  Nothing will be impossible to us if we are willing and obedient. 

The Lord, Jesus Christ, will work in us and through us to accomplish mighty feats in His name.  There will be miracles, signs and wonders abounding.  We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King and His name will be glorified because of all that we do.  Very soon now, Jesus will return to set up His everlasting Kingdom on this earth and we will be generously rewarded for our service.     

John 14:12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” 

All power, both in heaven and earth, has been given to Jesus Christ and He is delegating it to His followers. We have been given a divine commission to fulfill.  Our Lord and Savior wants us to evangelize the entire world.  We will make the Gospel of Jesus Christ available to every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation.  All sins will be forgiven, and they will inherit the gift of eternal life. 

Anything that Jesus did in the power of the Holy Spirit of God will be available to His people.  He is the Head, but we are the Body of Christ on this earth – His hands, feet and voice.  We will do all the works that He did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with His heavenly Father.  He will strengthen us in our spirits and give us full power of attorney in the use of His mighty name. 

Christ worked miracles of multiplication and spoke to inanimate objects like the wind, waves and fevers, and they obeyed Him.  He took control of satanic forces and healed men of all their afflictions and demonic oppression.  He read men’s minds and hearts, and we should be able to do the same things in the days to come.  He even transported Himself from place to place by the power of the Holy Spirit.  

It is reasonable to expect that we will be able to operate just like Jesus Christ did during His time on this earth.  He walked as a mere man, but He operated under the power of the Holy Spirit to work all miracles, signs and wonders.  If we have faith in Him and in the power of His name, we will be able to do everything that He did, and even more, since He ascended to be with our heavenly Father.

Hebrews 2:3-4 “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard [him]; God also bearing [them] witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?”  

We have been given great and precious promises through our faith in Jesus Christ and all that He did for us.  We have received the gift of eternal life and hope and confidence for our future.  The Lord has dramatically changed our lives and continues to be glorified in us.  We have been given divine destinies to fulfill that will impact the future of this planet and change the fate of all of mankind.  

Christ will imbue us with His very own divine power and authority to represent Him on this earth in the critical days to come, and we will be successful in all of our efforts.  We will accomplish great things, if we invoke the name of Jesus Christ in all that we say and do.  We will operate in miracles, signs and wonders, and all of creation will heed our words and respond to our commands.   

Plants and animals will soon be in perfect harmony with one another.  We will speak to the climate and regulate it to be temperate and predictable.  There will be no more natural disasters that cause loss of life and needless destruction.  We will reverse the adverse effects of all forms of pollution and cleanse this planet of all defilement, so that heaven itself can ultimately be brought here. 

We will speak to all government leaders and persuade them to adopt godly principles in dealing with one another.  There will soon be peace on earth and all men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.  We will eliminate poverty and lack and eradicate all forms of social injustice.  The kingdoms of this world will be absorbed into the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
 

All Needs Met Through The Blood And The Name 

Malachi 2:2 “If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay [it] to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay [it] to heart.”  

We must give the Lord, Jesus Christ, all the praise, honor and glory that He deserves.  He suffered and died so that we would have life in abundance to the overflow.  If we fail to exalt His holy name, we will be cursed instead of blessed.  He has done great and mighty things for us, and we should be continually mindful that anything is possible to us if we invoke His name.  

Christ always intercedes for us with His Father.  He is seated in heavenly places at the right hand of almighty God Himself, high above every principality and power.  We are able to approach the throne of grace with any need and know, for a fact, that it will indeed be met according to God’s riches in glory.  There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from His people. 

Jesus wants us to have total faith and confidence in both His Blood and in His name.  We are righteous in Him by the merits of His sacrificial death and entitled to all the covenant promises of God.  We have abundant grace, unmerited favor, with our Creator.  He wants to lavish us with all spiritual and temporal blessings now, and in the everlasting Kingdom of God to come.   

If we ask anything in Jesus’ name, the Lord will provide the answer to our prayers.  We have Christ’s power of attorney, the legal right to act in His place and function on His behalf.  We can use His name and be assured that all of our needs will be acknowledged and fulfilled.  That gives us incredible, divine power and authority that will move both heaven and earth in the days to come. 

John 14:13-14 “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].” 

Jesus Christ did not suffer and die an agonizing death just to save us from our sins.  He came to bring us life in abundance to the overflow, as well.  He wants to bless those who believe in His holy name and honor His shed Blood.  We are the righteousness of God in Him and entitled to receive the promises of God.  We are joint-heirs with Jesus to the everlasting Kingdom of God with all its many benefits. 

All that we must do is pray in Jesus’ name; make our needs known; and almighty God will satisfy them.

He is never stingy when it comes to answering our prayers.  He will meet all of our needs exceeding abundantly more than we could ever ask or think.  He will supply all that we require to be healthy, happy and content.  He wants to share all the vast resources of the universe with His people. 

We have to get over our poverty mindset that tells us God will only provide for those who have earned His favor.  His greatest desire is to bless all of His people extravagantly.  He does not want us to worry or fret over anything that we lack.  He is our total source for all good things – both spiritual and temporal.  Peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security joy and freedom all belong to us. 

They are our covenant promises for faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  The Bible says that if we ask anything in Jesus’ name, the Lord will supply it.  That leaves the field wide open for our imaginations to soar.  However, we cannot have fear, doubt and unbelief and hope to receive from God.  We must firmly believe that God is able to meet our needs and thank Him in advance for doing just that. 

Job 22:26-28 “For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God. Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.  Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”  

We serve a great and glorious God.  Nothing is impossible to Him.  He created us to be in intimate fellowship with Him and He loves to provide for us and protect us from all harm.  He has the heart of a Father and He delights in meeting all of our needs in abundance.  He wants us to exercise our authority as believers, to decree and declare what we would have Him do in our lives.   

It is vital that we verbalize what we want to see materialize in the natural realm, in order to have it actually manifest.  We are speaking spirits created in God’s own image and likeness.  We must have a vision and then command it into being.  The words that we speak that line up with the Word of God will always come to pass.  We should avoid negativity and speak only what we wish to have. 

If we can see the end results from the beginning, as God does, we would never fear or doubt His provision for any good thing.  He wants us blessed with all spiritual and temporal blessings, so that His name is glorified to all of creation.  We are righteous in His eyes, His very own sons and daughters.  He will never leave us ashamed or empty-handed if we seek His face and ask for anything. 

Whether we have need of wisdom and revelation, strength and endurance, power and authority or perhaps material things like food, shelter or money to meet our bills, the Lord will never let us down.  If we specifically state our request and believe it to be fulfilled, it will be forthcoming.  The Blood and the name of Jesus Christ Himself ensure that we are entitled to receive all good things.

 

Chapter 4 - Our Call To Glory 

Ephesians 1:4-6 “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.” 

The Lord created us in His very image and likeness to fellowship intimately with Him for all of eternity.  There was never meant to be a separation between man and God.  He yearns for our companionship and only sin and evil can estrange us from one another.  When Adam and Eve rebelled in the Garden of Eden, we lost our covenant relationship with God because of that transgression. 

However, almighty God never planned on allowing us to permanently slip away from Him.  He sent His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth to redeem us from our generational iniquity and deliver us from our sins.  Through the merits of Jesus’ Blood sacrifice on our behalf, we have been restored to right standing with our heavenly Father and we are now exonerated of all of our sin guilt. 

When the Lord looks at us, He sees Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God who was crucified for all of mankind.  We are deemed fully righteous and innocent of all of our sinfulness – past, present and future.  We have become brand new creatures in Christ and inherit the gift of eternal life.  Our minds are eventually renewed in the truth, and our behavior is totally transformed until it becomes godly.   

Christ was the firstborn from the dead of many sons and daughters of almighty God.  We are joint-heirs with Him to all the promises for righteousness.  We are actually seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.  We are now accepted in the beloved and the Lord has awesome plans for our lives.  We have eternal callings and divine destinies to fulfill in this world.   

2Timothy 1:9 “Who hath saved us, and called [us] with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,” 

The Lord has need of our help in rescuing others from darkness and destruction in these last days.  We are His goodwill ambassadors for the Kingdom of God on this earth.  He wants us to share our faith, so that others can be set free to eternal life as we have been.  We must preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every man, woman and child in every country of the world. 

There is a full number of souls that must be gathered in the end-time harvest, before heaven can be brought to this earth.  Every race, tongue and nationality will be represented, as we usher in the Kingdom of God.  The Lord will gather all of the righteous, as He intended from the very foundation of the world.  He wants to dwell with the people who are called by His name. 

We are His kings and priests in training for reigning.  We will soon rule over all the nations with Jesus Christ Himself.  We will teach all of mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity together as brothers and sisters.  All men will know the Lord and the power of His might as it works through us.  We will glorify our Lord and Savior in everything that we say and do. 

Romans 8:28-30 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.   Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” 

We were created for a very specific purpose.  Almighty God called us from the beginning of time to be instrumental in these last days.  We were predestined to be conformed to the very image of Christ Himself.  We have been justified by His Blood and we will be glorified together with Him.  We are the Lord’s very own sons and daughters who will positively impact the entire earth and everyone in it.   

Our role is a significant one.  We have been given a sacred charge to rescue all of mankind from darkness and deception before Jesus Christ can return to us and set up His everlasting Kingdom on this earth.  We have to preach the Gospel throughout the entire world and baptize all those who are receptive.  We will heal the sick and cast out demons in Jesus’ name, and even raise the dead back to life. 

We will demonstrate the love, mercy and compassion of God Himself for His people.  We will gather them into His Kingdom in huge numbers.  No one who is righteous will be left behind.  We will make certain that they are healed and whole, free from their bondage to sin and oppression.  We will reclaim the entire earth for the Kingdom of God and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King. 

Ephesians 2:8-10 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."   

We will fulfill Christ’s ministry on this earth, even before He returns to us.  We will do the works that He did and even greater works, since He has gone to be with His heavenly Father.  Everything that we do will be by the power and authority of His Holy Spirit that works in and through us.  He will lead and direct us, so we are totally successful in all of our efforts to serve Him and His people.  

Believers will confront all world governments to ensure that they adopt righteous, Kingdom principles in their dealings with one another.  There will be no more wars, violence, bloodshed and conflict.  All men will ultimately learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity.  We will abolish all social injustice, so that everyone is treated with fairness, dignity and respect. 

We will eliminate all poverty and lack, as the wealth of the wicked is redistributed to the righteous.  God’s people will become clearinghouses for all the vast resources of the universe that are made available to us.  We will teach the affluent to share all of their material goods with those who are less fortunate.  The Lord will make certain that all of our needs are met according to His riches in glory. 

All of creation will be impacted as we command total harmony in the plant and animal kingdoms.  The climate will be regulated so that there are no more natural catastrophes that cause death, devastation and destruction.  We will reverse the effects of all forms of pollution and cleanse the earth of all its defilement, so that heaven itself can be ushered in here in the everlasting Kingdom of God.
 

The Chosen Ones 

Isaiah 43:10 “Ye [are] my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I [am] he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” 

Believers are witnesses for the Lord, Jesus Christ, who will represent Him throughout the entire world.  We are intimately acquainted with our Lord and Savior and we will be His goodwill ambassadors for the everlasting Kingdom of God.  We will preach the Gospel of peace to every man, woman and child with power and conviction and baptize many souls in our faith. 

Everyone will be given an opportunity to receive the gift of eternal life.  We will make salvation available to every race, tongue and nation in this world.  No one who is righteous will be rejected from the Kingdom of almighty God.  We will tell all of mankind the good news.  Jesus suffered and died so that we do not have to do the same.  He bought and paid for our redemption. 

The Lord will demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion through His people who are called by His holy name.  We will heal the sick of all their infirmities and deliver all the captives from their bondage to sin and evil.  We will even raise the dead back to life once again.  Nothing will be impossible to us, as we serve the Lord and His people in miracles, signs and wonders.   

We will walk in the supernatural realm in the days to come.  Jesus Christ will operate through us to touch the lives of everyone whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.  We will have angelic hosts to assist us.  We will gather in the full, end-time harvest of souls that is necessary before heaven can be brought to this earth, and glorify God in all that we say and do.   

Deuteronomy 7:6 “For thou [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that [are] upon the face of the earth.” 

All men will know that we are called of God and designated to represent Him on this earth.  We will be imbued with His awesome power.  They will be impressed and cooperate with our efforts to bring peace, order and stability to our lives even before Christ returns to us.  We will establish godly principles as the norm and abolish war and violence, poverty and lack, eliminating all social injustice.   

We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King and cleanse this planet of all its defilement, so that heaven itself can be brought here.  There will be total harmony in the plant and animal kingdoms.  Even the climate will be stabilized until it is temperate and predictable.  There will be no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction.  We will reverse the effects of all pollution. 

The Kingdom of almighty God will be heaven on this earth for all those who are eligible to enter into it.  If we are righteous, loving and obedient, we will be able to enjoy all of its many benefits.  The Lord will supply all of our needs in abundance and make certain that we are healthy, happy and prosperous all the days of our lives.  We will dwell in safety and security, joy and freedom for all eternity. 

Our God will boast of us to all of creation as His very own beloved sons and daughters.  Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will take vengeance on all our enemies and protect us from all harm.  He will rule and reign as a righteous King and as a generous benefactor.  We will all learn to fellowship in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters or be forever banished from the Lord’s awesome presence.   

1Peter 2:9 “But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:” 

We are unique among all of God’s creatures.  He conceived us in His very own image and likeness from the very foundation of the world for such a time as this.  We are a chosen generation, a holy people, kings and priests who will glorify Him and impact the future of the entire human race.  We will serve as righteous role models at all times and lead others out of sin and darkness into His marvelous light.  

The Lord is sanctifying us, so that we can be imbued with divine power and authority to represent Him.  We will walk just as Jesus Christ Himself did and operate in miracles, signs and wonders even before He returns.  Nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days that lie ahead.  We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead.  The glory of God will be manifested here on this earth. 

Almighty God will move through His people who are called by His holy name and demonstrate His deep, abiding love, mercy and compassion for all of mankind.  We will warn them of the impending judgment and offer them the gift of eternal life in exchange for their sinfulness.  If they believe in Jesus Christ and confess Him as their personal Lord and Savior, they will be redeemed just as we have been. 

They will become new creatures in Christ.  Their minds will be renewed in the truth and their behavior transformed.  They will be joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness to include the Kingdom of God.  There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from them.  He will meet all their needs according to His riches in glory.  They will spend all of eternity in His holy presence.
 

Growing In Him 

2Corinthians 5:17-18 “Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” 

None of us can ever hope to be righteous in our own strength.  We need divine intervention to provide us with our salvation.  The Lord knew all that and offered up His very own Son, so that we could be redeemed from all of our transgressions and delivered from all of our iniquity.  Jesus actually became sin for us and then suffered its penalty of death, so that we could receive life in abundance to the overflow. 

When we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we become new creatures in Him.  Our sins are forgiven us, and we become righteous before God.  When the Lord looks at us, He sees Jesus in all of His perfection and He does not impute any sin guilt to us.  The slate has been wiped clean once and for all, and we are accepted in the beloved as the actual sons and daughters of almighty God. 

Once we are born again in our spirit man, we are restored to right standing with our heavenly Father.  In fact, we are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.  We become joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness.  There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from His people.  We can approach the throne of grace without fear, shame or condemnation. 

There is no longer an impediment to our intimate relationship with our Creator.  The Lord will be certain to hear all of our prayers and meet all of our needs according to His riches in glory.  We are permanently reconciled to Him by the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, and covered for all of our sins – past, present and future.  We now have grace with our God, His unmerited favor in everything that we do.   

Colossians 3:1-4 “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, [who is] our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.”   

Jesus Christ not only suffered and died just for us, but He also rose again from the dead to the newness of life.  He was the firstborn of many sons and daughters of God who will be born again in their spirits.  If we believe in Him and all that He accomplished on our behalf, we will be forever changed.  He will assist us in our sanctification and lead and guide us until we are perfected. 

Our redemption is progressive and requires our cooperation.  The Lord will make certain that our minds are gradually renewed in the truth and our behavior is transformed until it becomes godly.  If we pray for the baptism in His Holy Spirit, He is always faithful to respond to our request.  The Lord’s very own Spirit will permeate our entire being until we are filled with His presence. 

We must set our minds on things above instead of mundane matters.  If we empty ourselves of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions, the Lord will imbue us with His very own power.  It is critical that we imitate the laid down life of Christ Himself.  We have divine destinies to fulfill that require us to be consecrated and dedicated to God’s plans and purposes, rather than our own.   

Jude 1:24-25 “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, [be] glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”  

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has called us to follow Him and make disciples of the entire earth before He returns to us.  He has been given all power and authority and He has delegated it to us.  We will make salvation available to every man, woman and child.  Everyone will have an equal opportunity to repent of their sins and believe the truth that sets them free once and for all time.   

We will walk just as Christ did during His earthly ministry and do the works that He did, and even greater works, now that He has gone to be with His heavenly Father.  Nothing will be impossible to us.  We will share our faith and work miracles, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name.  The blind will see; the deaf will hear; the lame will walk; and the poor will have the Gospel preached to them. 

The fate of all mankind will be positively impacted.  We will share our faith and see countless numbers saved and baptized to eternal life.  The sick will be healed of all their afflictions and infirmities.  We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil.  We will even raise the dead by the power of God that works through us to accomplish His will on earth, as it is in heaven. 

The Lord will be pleased with all of our efforts on His behalf and gather us to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God.  We will have peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom.  He will actually come and dwell with us and make certain that all of our needs are satisfied in abundance.  There will no longer be a separation between God and man.
 

Perfected For His Glory 

Philippians 3:12-14 “Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”   

If we are followers of Jesus Christ, we must learn to discipline ourselves and imitate His laid down life, so that we can be spiritually perfected and attain to His glory.  Ours is a high calling in Him, but we are well able to achieve it with His help and direction.  He will be our strength against all temptation to evil and carry us through all tests, trials and tribulation in our walk with Him.     

We are brand new creatures in Christ and all things have become new for us.  Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is gradually transformed until we become righteous role models for others.  We are fully sanctified in body, soul and spirit, so that we can emulate Jesus and lead others to Him.  We will share our faith and make salvation available to all those who are receptive.   

The Gospel of Jesus Christ will be preached throughout the entire world to every race, tongue and nation.  We will baptize countless numbers of souls to eternal life in the end-time harvest.  Every man, woman and child whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be called and saved.  No righteous individual will ever be denied entry into the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God.    

Mark 8:34-35 “And when he had called the people [unto him] with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.”  

It is vital that we repent of all known sin and renounce it for all time.  Our sanctification is an ongoing process that requires due diligence on our part.  We have to crucify our flesh and forego all of our selfish soul ambitions in favor of God’s will for our lives.  We have divine destinies to embrace as His sons and daughters, which means that we will have to take up our cross on a daily basis. 

There are many souls still lost in sin and evil, darkness and deception, and they need us to help rescue them from their present plight.  We must share the truth that we have been given, and be godly role models in all that we think, say and do.  We will show others the way to righteousness through a sincere faith in Jesus Christ, and make the gift of eternal life available to those who are receptive to it.  

No one can come to the Father except through the cross of Christ.  Our faith is of the essence if we wish to be in right standing with our Creator.  Unless we share what we believe with others, they will be held in perpetual bondage.  Everyone will soon be held accountable for his works in the flesh whether they were righteous or evil.  If we cling to our worldly ways, that will lead to our downfall.   

Matthew 5:48 “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”   

The Lord expects us to strive for maturity as His sons and daughters.  He is holy and perfect and we must become like Him if we wish to dwell in His awesome presence for all of eternity.  We are well able to imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ and follow in His footsteps.  He will empower us to overcome the world, our flesh and the devil, so that we resemble Him in every way. 

We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus.  He will strengthen us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we can lead sin-free lives and grow in godliness.  His Spirit will lead and guide us into all truth and convict us of any known sin.  If we walk in the Spirit, instead of our flesh, we will reach spiritual perfection and learn to rule and reign in this life and in the Kingdom to come.   

Attributes like those of almighty God Himself will ultimately grow and develop in us.  We will become more peaceful, loving and joyous.  Our faith will increase proportionately to our willingness to surrender to God.  Goodness and gentleness will overtake us, so that all of our personal relationships are enhanced.  We will become meek, temperate and longsuffering through the Holy Spirit. 

Hebrews 13:20-21 “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen.”   

We must submit our bodies as living sacrifices to almighty God and learn to walk like Christ did while He was on this earth.  He is our role model for righteousness and godliness, and we are well able to imitate His laid down life and operate just as He did during His earthly ministry.  We must resume His duties where He left off, and take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ must be preached to all those who are still in darkness and deception.  We will share our faith and baptize countless numbers of souls in the end-time harvest.  We will work miracles, signs and wonders to demonstrate the deep, abiding love that God has for His people.  We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again. 

Nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days that lie ahead before Christ returns.  We will establish peace, order and stability in all of our affairs.  There will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere.  Poverty and lack will be eradicated once and for all.  All of mankind will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect, as we bring heaven’s way of doing things to the earth.
 

God’s Power And Glory Reflected In Us 

Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.”  

The people of God will shine with His glorious light, as we usher in His everlasting Kingdom to this earth.  All of mankind will know that we are called by His holy name and destined to change the fate of the entire human race.  We will be imbued with divine power and authority.  We will share our faith, as the Lord arranges our contacts, and be righteous role models in all that we think, say and do. 

All world governments will be impacted by our efforts.  We will challenge their leaders to treat all of their constituents with fairness, dignity and respect.  We will encourage peaceful negotiations for resolving all conflict, so that there is order and stability in all of our lives. We will teach all of mankind to dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity, as the Lord requires of us. 

Christ has anointed us to take back the world and everyone in it before heaven itself comes to this earth realm.  We must establish godly principles as the norm.  Men can no longer be selfish and greedy.  The wealth of the wicked is being stored up for the righteous and it will ultimately be released to God’s people.  We will become clearinghouses for all the vast resources that the universe has to offer. 

Poverty and lack will be things of the past.  There will be no more famine, homelessness and pestilence anywhere.  All men will have their basic needs met and an abundance to share with others.  They will prosper and be in good health, even as their souls prosper.  The followers of Jesus Christ will make certain that all men, women and children have hope and confidence for their future.   

2Thessalonians 1:11 “Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of [this] calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of [his] goodness, and the work of faith with power:    That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” 

We have been well groomed for our divine destinies.  The Lord has seen to it that we are totally sanctified in the truth and strengthened in our spirit man, so that we can take back the earth for the Kingdom of God.  We have been endued with divine power and authority to act in His stead in the critical days to come.  He will be glorified in all those who are called by His holy name. 

All of creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons and daughters of God, so that we can set it free to the glorious liberty that we experience.  It has been contaminated by sin, wickedness and evil for thousands of years.  We will regulate the climate to be temperate and predictable once again.  There will be no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction in their wake. 

We will command all of the plants and animals to be in total harmony with one another and subject to man once again.  There will be no more predatory spirit that devours the weak among us.  We will reverse the adverse effects of all forms of pollution and establish peace, order and stability in this world.  Everything that we do will be with almighty God’s guidance and direction. 

Nehemiah 1:10 “Now these [are] thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.” 

All men will know that we are called of God to implement His will on earth, just as it is in heaven.  We will soon be treated with respect for all that we have been entrusted to do.  We will work miracles, signs and wonders to attest to our faith, and attract countless numbers of human beings to the Kingdom of God through our efforts.  Many souls will be won to eternal life. 

We will heal the sick of all their diseases; there will be no infirm among us any longer.  We will cast out all demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil, and destroy the satanic strongholds in their lives.  We will even raise the dead back to life once again, so that they can be reunited with all of their loved ones and enter in to the everlasting Kingdom of God with the rest of us.  

The righteous will be blessed in abundance in the days to come.  Almighty God will show Himself strong on our behalf.  He will send legions of ministering angels to meet all our needs.  We will overcome all evil with good and warn others of the impending judgment that will come on all flesh when Christ returns to us.  He will judge all men and even angels to determine our fate. 

The faithful will have many rewards for their devotion to the Lord and His plans and purposes, but those who are stubborn and rebellious will be banished from His awesome presence.  He will tolerate no sin and evil to ever enter into His Kingdom.  Those who have disobeyed almighty God and persisted in their lawlessness will be forever vanquished to the eternal lake of fire. 

Deuteronomy 11:25 “There shall no man be able to stand before you: [for] the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.” 

The Lord will soon take vengeance on all the enemies of His people.  We will no longer be scorned or derided for our faith.  The righteous will shine with the light of Christ and receive the everlasting Kingdom of God as our legacy.  We will be blessed beyond belief and rewarded for all of our good works.  Jesus will appoint us as kings and priest to rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. 

We will be judges of both men and angels, and teach others how to dwell in love, peace and unity, as brothers and sisters.  We will have the heathen and the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. All men will ultimately know the Lord, and His laws will be written in their minds and hearts for all time.  We will be respected everywhere, as the people who are called and chosen by His holy name. 

No one will be able to stand against us, as we assume our rightful positions in God’s Kingdom on this earth.  The Lord will be our vanguard and our rear guard.  We will be delivered from all evil, safe and secure from all harm.  Jesus Christ will return to rule as a righteous King with a rod of iron.  He will make certain that His people are protected from everything that might defile or contaminate them.


No Fear Here 

Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

The people of God will demonstrate that they are strong and courageous in His mighty name.  The Lord will never leave us or forsake us, no matter how troubled things might become on this earth.  He will be our light in the darkness and our refuge in the storm.  There may be new territory for us to conquer, but we will walk in love and unity and defeat all evil with good. 

The Body of Christ will destroy all demonic strongholds that interfere with our work, and bring peace, order and stability to everything we touch.  We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil in the critical days to come.  The Lord will manifest Himself to all of mankind through us.  We will win many souls to eternal life through our efforts on His behalf.

The fate of the entire planet will be impacted for good.  We will introduce and enforce godly principles as the norm in all of our human affairs.  The Kingdom of almighty God will advance on earth, as it is in heaven, and absorb all worldly governments into its political and social infrastructure.  There will finally be justice in this world and all men will be treated fairly.  

Joshua 1:9 “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee whithersoever thou goest.”  

The Lord will work though us to demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion for all mankind.  We will share our faith and baptize countless numbers in the end-time harvest of souls.  We will make eternal life available to all those who are willing to repent of their sins and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.  No righteous man, woman or child will be left behind. 

We will walk in supernatural power and abilities in the days ahead.  We will lay hands on the sick and they will recover from all of their afflictions.  The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk.  We will cast out all demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil, and they will flee from us.  We will even raise the dead back to life once again, just as Christ Himself did. 

Nothing will be impossible to us.  Whatever the Lord asks us to do on His behalf, we will be well able to achieve.  He will equip us with a full anointing of His very own power and authority to tread on serpents and destroy all the works of the devil.  We will take back this entire earth for the Kingdom of God, so our Lord and Savior can return to commence His eternal rule and reign. 

Isaiah 35:4 “Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come [with] vengeance, [even] God [with] a recompence; he will come and save you.”  

We can have total faith and confidence in our future.  The Lord has a perfect plan in place for the full deliverance of all of mankind.  He will soon complete our redemption in spirit, soul and body, and set matters straight in the universe once and for all.  He is sending His beloved Son back to this world to receive His everlasting Kingdom as an eternal reward for all He accomplished. 

Jesus Christ is not returning as a babe in the manger or a meek and mild Lamb of God this time.  He has vengeance in His heart to conquer all of His enemies and to vindicate His people.  He will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming.  He will judge all men, and even angels, to determine who has been righteous and who deserves never ending punishment.  

Our Lord and Savior will gather all of the faithful to Himself for all of eternity, as we have been promised.  However, the wicked and rebellious will banished from His holy presence to the unquenchable lake of fire.  Christ will bind Satan and all of his minions in the bottomless pit.  No evil will enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God to interfere with its peace and serenity or to defile God’s people.  

Psalm 62:7 “In God [is] my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, [and] my refuge, [is] in God.”  

The Lord is our salvation – strength and refuge in our times of trouble.  He will never abandon us in any of our tests, trials and tribulation.  We can rely on the fact that our God is for us and not against us in any way.  He is only glorified when we are healthy and happy, and prevail in all we do.  He has a wonderful future planned for His people and we will soon enter into it.

The Kingdom of almighty God will be heaven on this earth for all those who are righteous, loving and obedient.  We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden, with no downside this time.  We will have all of our needs met in abundance and bask in the glory that the Lord has in store for us.  He will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters.

Our heavenly Father will come to this earth and actually take up residence with the people who are called by His name.  There will no longer be a separation between God and man.  We will dwell in His awesome presence for all of eternity, as He planned from the foundation of the world.  We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth and give Him the thanks that He deserves.
 

More Than Conquerors

Romans 8:33 “Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? [It is] God that justifieth.” 

One of the predominant mental strongholds that the enemy tries to impose on God’s people is that we are forever lost in our sins.  He wants us to believe that we are weak and helpless in the face of his advances and doomed to punishment.  What Satan intended for evil in the Garden of Eden when he tempted Adam and Eve to commit high treason against almighty God, the Lord has turned for our good.   

He sent His beloved Son to buy back our innocence and to help us to rule and reign in this life and in the Kingdom to come.  Jesus Christ was totally victorious over sin, death and the grave.  He defeated the devil for all time and gave back dominion over all matters in this world to His followers.  We are now restored to our right standing with our heavenly Father and esteemed as His own sons and daughters. 

Our Lord and Savior not only redeemed us from all of our transgressions, but He also came to bring us life in abundance to the overflow.  We should not permit, fear, doubt or unbelief to rob us of any benefits of our birthright.  We need not experience shame, guilt or condemnation ever again.  When the Lord looks at us, He sees us as being fully righteous and justified by the merits of the Blood of Jesus Christ. 

We are not slaves to almighty God; we are His beloved children.  He wants to lavish us with blessings and share all the vast resources of the universe with us.  Once we are persuaded that He is on our side, we will abandon all of our carnality and selfish soul ambitions and accept our eternal callings.  The Lord is in need of our input in rescuing others from the wickedness and evil that threaten to overtake them. 

Ephesians 3:20 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,”  

We are called and chosen, the elect of God created for such a time as this.  We have divine destinies to fulfill that will change the fate of the entire world.  We will release all of mankind from darkness and deception and provide them with the opportunity to receive eternal life.  We will share our faith with power and conviction and set every man, woman and child free in the truth of the Gospel message. 

Countless numbers of souls will be gathered in during the end-time harvest that is coming on every race, tongue and nation.  We will preach Christ crucified and see many repent and be baptized in His holy name.  They will be redeemed and delivered of all of their afflictions once and for all time.  We will cast out demons that hold them in bondage to sin and evil, and even raise the dead back to life again. 

Nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days that lie ahead before Christ returns to us.  We will operate by the power and authority of the Holy Spirit that works in us and through us to demonstrate the deep, abiding love, mercy and compassion that our God has for His people.  Supernatural signs and wonders will follow us wherever we go, and we will work many miracles to attest to our faith. 

All of mankind will know that we are called of God and His representatives on this earth.  We will advance His everlasting Kingdom, as we have been ordained.  The entire world will be at peace, and men will have all of their needs met in abundance from all the vast resources that this universe has to offer.  Our God will supply all that we require to be healthy, happy and prosperous, until Jesus Christ returns to us.  

1John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 

We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil and be totally victorious in all that we say and do, because the “greater one,” Jesus Christ, lives in us.  We will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of almighty God and change the fate of all mankind.  Nothing will remain the same.  We will confront all wickedness that we see and defeat it with good.   

All world governments will be challenged to line up with godly principles of fairness and equality for all.  There will be no more social injustice; all men will be treated with dignity and respect.  We will eliminate all wars and conflicts, and finally bring peace order and stability to this earth.  There will be no more poverty and lack anywhere; all needs will be met. 

We will speak to all of creation and it will line up with the perfect will of God.  There will be total harmony among plants and animals, and they will be subject to mankind once again as they were in the Garden of Eden.  The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable.  There will never be any more natural catastrophes that cause destruction in their wake. 

Romans 8:37-39 “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”   

We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus.  He leads and guides us by the power of His Holy Spirit and strengthens us to be successful in all that we do.  We are His goodwill ambassadors on this earth for the Kingdom of God and we will impact all of mankind through our efforts on His behalf.  We will be righteous role models at all times and share our faith with power and conviction. 

Nothing will impede our progress or deter us in meeting our goals in the critical days that lie ahead.  We are the actual sons and daughters of almighty God, who have been imbued with His very own power and authority.  We are world-changers, who are destined to bring heaven itself to this earth realm.  The Lord will send legions of ministering angels to support us in everything we say and do.  

We will tear down all demonic strongholds that keep men in bondage to sin and evil.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with real fervor and baptize all those who are called by His holy name.  Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be called and saved to eternal life.  Nothing will separate us from the awesome love of God that works through us to rescue others. 

The Kingdom of God will be ushered in with a flourish of power and glory.  We will teach all of mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.  The Lord will be proud of His people and boast of us to all of creation.  Jesus Christ will share His very own honor and glory with us.  We will judge both men and angels, and rule and reign with Christ over all of the nations of the world.
 

From Glory To Glory 

Romans 5:1-2 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”   

We are righteous only through our faith in Jesus Christ and all that He accomplished on our behalf.  He became a curse for us, so that we could be blessed in abundance.  He who knew no sin Himself, took on all the sins of the world, suffered, died and was buried, so that we would not have to endure the same fate.  He rose again from the dead to honor and glory, so that we could have grace and favor with almighty God. 

Jesus served as our sacrificial substitute and paid our sin debt in its entirety with His very own Blood.  We are justified by our faith in Him and we now have peace with God.  There is no good thing that our heavenly Father will ever withhold from us if we believe in His Son and appropriate His righteousness.  We can have hope and confidence for our future, because we are seated with Christ in heavenly places.   

Believers are Christ’s representatives on this earth – members of His very own Body.  We are His voice, hands and feet to all of mankind.  We must share what we have received with others, so that they can also be blessed as we have been.  We should preach the Gospel with fervor and baptize all those who are receptive in Jesus’ name.  It is not the Lord’s will that anyone perish for lack of knowledge in the truth. 

We are joint-heirs with Jesus, and we will soon inherit the Kingdom of God as our eternal legacy.  We will receive the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth.  The Lord will confer His honor and glory on us.  He will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters, and appoint us kings and priests.  We will judge both men and angels, and even rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all of the nations of the world. 

2Corinthians 4:13 “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present [us] with you. For all things [are] for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.”  

Almighty God formed us in His very own image and likeness to dwell in honor and glory with Him all the days of our lives in a literal paradise on this earth.  Man may have temporarily interrupted that with his transgression, but we have been restored to our original right standing with our Creator.  Through the merits of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf, we have all of our privileges completely reinstated. 

We are the beloved sons and daughters of God Himself.  It is now possible for us to live holy lives and fulfill our divine destinies, as we are called to do.  We will rescue all of mankind from sin, darkness and deception and show them the way to receive the gift of eternal life.  We will make salvation available to all those who are receptive to it by preaching the Gospel with power and conviction in the days ahead. 

Nothing will be impossible to us if we serve the Lord as we should.  He will imbue us with His own divine power to work miracles in His name.  We will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.  We will deliver men from all their oppression and bondage to sin and evil of any kind.  We will even raise the dead back to life again to manifest the ultimate power of the Holy Spirit of God that works in us and through us. 

We will challenge all world governments to establish peace, order and stability in our affairs.  There will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere.  We will command all of creation to line up with God’s Word, as it is spoken through our mouths.  Plants and animals will be in total harmony.  The climate will be regulated, and there will be no more pollution or natural disasters that cause death and destruction. 

All of mankind will give the Lord thanks and praise for what He has done through His people.  He will boast of us to all of creation; grant us generous rewards; and appoint us to be kings and priests.  We will rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world and teach others to dwell in love, peace and unity.  We will be glorified with our Lord and Savior, just as He promised us that we would be. 

2Corinthians 3:18 “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 

If we sanctify ourselves of all known sin, the Lord will change us from glory to glory and from strength to strength in our walk with Him.  He will assist us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we can lead lives that are consecrated and dedicated to Him.  If we are emptied out of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions, almighty God can anoint us with power and authority to represent Him on this earth. 

We will be His goodwill ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and lead many others to redemption through our efforts.  We will make the Gospel of Jesus Christ heard throughout the entire world.  Every single man, woman and child will have an equal opportunity to be saved to eternal life.  No one who is righteous will ever be left behind when the Lord gathers His people to Himself, as He has promised. 

The people of God will revolutionize the entire earth before Christ returns.  We will destroy all artificial barriers that keep us alienated from one another.  Men will learn to walk in love and unity as brothers and sisters and share all of their resources with those who are in need.  We will bring peace, order and stability to all our affairs, and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Jesus Christ as King.   

Very soon now, our God will actually come and take up residence with the people who are called by His holy name.  He will shower us with blessings in abundance for all of eternity.  We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His awesome presence.  The Kingdom of God will be the answer to our prayers and the solution to all our problems. 

 

Chapter 5 - Vessels Of Honor And Glory 

2Peter 1:2-4 “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”  

Almighty God created man in His very own image and likeness to fellowship intimately with Him for all of eternity.  We hold a very special place in His heart, despite the fact that we have all sinned and fallen short of His glory.  If we have accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior and been cleansed of all unrighteousness, we now have peace with God.  There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us.   

We are His very own beloved sons and daughters, and He is extremely proud of us.  He knows that we struggle to maintain our faith in a sin-darkened world, and He will never leave us or forsake us.  He will strengthen us in the power of His might, so that we can overcome the world, our flesh and the devil.  We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus, who leads and guides us into righteousness and godliness. 

The Lord has destined us to greatness, and He will imbue us with all the divine power and authority that we require to represent Him to the rest of mankind.  If we sanctify ourselves of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions, we will walk just as Jesus did on the earth and resume His ministry where He left off.  We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with enthusiasm, and win many souls to eternal life as a result. 

We will be the Lord’s goodwill ambassadors and manifest His inimitable love, mercy and compassion for the entire human race.  He will work through us to demonstrate how much He desires men’s affection and companionship. We will heal all those who are sick and afflicted, and cast out demons that hold them in bondage to sin and evil.  We will even raise the dead back to life again by the operation of His Holy Spirit.  

Ephesians 3:20-21 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”   

Nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days that lie ahead of us.  The Lord will be with those who are called by His holy name.  He will exhibit His power and glory through us, so that the fate of all mankind is positively impacted.  We will take back the entire earth and everyone in it for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We will exercise our God-given dominion and usher in the Kingdom of God. 

We will tear down all demonic strongholds that hold men in bondage to sin and evil and separate them from one another and almighty God.  All world governments will have to line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all or risk extinction.  There will be no more wars, violence or conflict in our human affairs.  We will all learn to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters in the Lord. 

Poverty and lack will disappear, as we learn to share all the vast resources of the universe with those who are in need.  Death and disease will be things of the past.  There will be astounding cures developed for terminal diseases that have plagued mankind since the beginning of time.  Our natural environment will be regulated and all of creation will be subject to man once again, as it used to be in the Garden of Eden. 

We will usher in the Kingdom of God with power.  Nothing will deter or detain us in our efforts.  The Lord will assign legions of ministering angels to assist us, so that everything that we do on His behalf is totally successful.  God’s perfect will must be implemented on this earth, just as it is in heaven.  All of Jesus Christ’s enemies must be put underneath His feet, so He can return to us to receive His eternal reward.

John 17:22-24 “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.” 

We are one Body in Christ and He is glorified in us, as much as we are glorified in Him and in one another.  We will prevail all over this earth, even before Christ returns to set up His everlasting reign.  We will share in His eternal legacy for righteousness and obedience.  The Kingdom of God will be our just reward for faithfulness and the Lord will boast of us to all of creation. 

We will be appointed as kings and priests and judge both men and angels.  We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth as our inheritance.  We will teach all men to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters and to worship our God in Spirit and in truth.  We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory and rule and reign with Him over all of the nations. 

We will never be separated from our God ever again.  Our heavenly Father will actually come and take up residence with those who are called by His holy name.  He will supply all of our needs in abundance, and restore all that has been taken from us over the years.  Jesus Christ will change these mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that are like His very own. 

We will dwell in a literal paradise on the earth if we are eligible to enter into the Kingdom of God.  It will be the idyllic environment for both God and man.  All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful and we will share in all the vast resources that this universe has to offer us.  There will finally be peace on earth and unlimited blessings for all of God’s people for all eternity. 
 

The Hope Of Glory 

Colossians 1:27-28 “To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:” 

We have been redeemed with a purpose that often transcends our human comprehension.  Jesus Christ served as our sacrificial substitute, so that we could have life in abundance to the overflow.  He, who knew no sin, became sin for us, and then paid its penalty with His own life so that we could be blessed.  Jesus suffered, died and was buried, so that we do not have to endure the same fate. 

Our Lord and Savior rose from the dead to the newness of life and He now lives in each and every one of us who believe in Him.  That should give us confidence for our future.  Christ in us is the hope of glory.  Through Him, we can do all things and reach full, spiritual maturity.  We can actually grow and develop by the power of His Holy Spirit until we become holy and perfect, just as He is. 

If we sanctify ourselves of all carnality and forego our selfish soul ambitions, Jesus Christ will be able to entrust us with His very own anointing power and authority to resume His ministry on this earth where He left off.  We will be able to walk just as He walked, doing the good works that He did.  We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and baptize many souls in His awesome name. 

Believers will make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child in every nation of the world.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions, and cast out demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil.  The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk through our efforts.  We will even raise the dead back to life again through the power of the Holy Spirit of God. 

Romans 5:1-2 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”  

Ever since we have been born again through our faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, who came to save us from our sins, our lives have changed as never before.  We are brand new creatures as a result.  The old, sinful man is dead and our spirit man is alive and thriving.  We now have peace with God and our right standing with Him is restored to what it originally was at the time of our creation. 

We have become God’s very own sons and daughters by faith.  He calls us His beloved and we now have rights and privileges.  We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness.  There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us.  The entire creation is subject to our dominion, and all that we must do is learn to exercise it according to the Lord’s eternal plans and purposes.   

Almighty God has divine destinies in mind for each and every one of us.  He called us from the very foundation of the world for such a time as this.  We will be imbued with His divine power and authority to serve as His personal, goodwill ambassadors on this earth.  We will usher in His everlasting Kingdom, and prepare the hearts of all of mankind to receive Jesus Christ as their righteous King.   

We will glorify our God in all that we think, say and do on His behalf.  He will manifest His awesome presence in our midst and demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion through us.  Men will know that the Lord is still in charge of the entire universe, and that He cares deeply for His people.  He has a perfect plan in place for our well-being now, and in the Kingdom to come, for all eternity. 

Ephesians 1:17-18 “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,”   

The fate of the entire human race will be positively impacted in the days to come before Jesus Christ returns to us.  The sons and daughters of almighty God will rescue all those who are still lost in sin and darkness and set matters straight all over this earth.  The Kingdom of God will manifest and advance until it encompasses this whole world with Christ’s unfailing love and righteousness.    

We will bring peace, order and stability to all of our lives and restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance.  We will confront all evil and overcome it with good.  We will establish godly principles as the norm in all of our human affairs.  There will be fairness and justice for all of mankind.  All men, women and children will be treated with the dignity and respect that they deserve. 

Soon there will be no more poverty and lack, no death and destruction anywhere in this world.  God’s will must be implemented on this earth, just as it is in heaven.  He will sovereignly move to heal His people and deliver us from all bondage and oppression.  He will supply all of our needs in abundance.  We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom. 

Jesus will work through those who are called by His holy name and bring heaven itself to this earth realm. Our Lord and Savior will be glorified in His holy saints for all of eternity.  He will share His very own honor and glory with us.  We will be appointed kings and priests of God, so that we can minister effectively to His people.  We will rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.
 

The Glory of God Fills His People 

Ephesians 3:16-19 “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” 

If we have been born again and redeemed to eternal life, then our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, actually dwells in us.  We are brand new creatures in Him.  We have cast off our old sin nature and our minds are being renewed in the truth.  If we imitate Christ’s laid down life and present our bodies as living sacrifices to God, our behavior will eventually be transformed until it becomes holy and perfect. 

The glory of almighty God will descend on His people in a dramatic way in the critical days to come.  We must be sanctified in the truth; strengthened in our spirit man; and operate in love at all times.  Then we will be imbued with divine power and authority to impact this entire earth.  We will be filled with all the fullness of God, so that we are able to serve His people in everything that we say and do.   

We will impact the fate of all mankind as we usher in the Kingdom of God.  We will implement God’s ways of doing things, so that there is peace, order and stability in all of our affairs.  We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good.  There will be no more wars and conflict, no poverty and lack, no death and destruction anywhere.  Heaven will come to this earth, as the Lord intends. 

Very soon now, all men will dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters or be banished to the eternal lake of fire for all eternity.  The Lord loves us with a deep abiding love, but He will tolerate no strife and division among us.  We will all be righteous or be cast out of His holy presence.  The everlasting Kingdom of God will be paradise on this earth and nothing will ever disturb its tranquility. 

Philippians 1:9-11 “And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and [in] all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.”  

We will walk just as Jesus Christ walked on this earth, and introduce His perfect moral code and godly value system to the entire human race.  We will dispel all sin and darkness by exposing it to the light.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with zeal and set men free in the truth for all time.  We will make redemption to eternal life available to all those who repent and accept Jesus as Lord.  

The Kingdom of God will manifest through us and ultimately cover the entire earth.  We will demonstrate the power and glory of almighty God to all those we meet.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil of any kind.  We will even raise the dead back to life again, and perform various other miracles, signs and wonders to attest to our faith. 

All men, women and children will learn to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters through our righteous example.  We will share our faith with power and conviction and serve as godly role models.  The wealth of the wicked will be redistributed to those who serve the Lord, so that all of our needs are met in abundance.  We will share in all the vast resources that this universe has to offer us. 

There will be a major shift in our social interactions.  Artificial barriers that separate us from one another will be abolished.  There will be no more class distinctions.  We will introduce Kingdom principles of fairness, equality and justice to all our human affairs.  Any demonic strongholds that keep us at odds with one another will be torn down and replaced with peaceful negotiation and compromise.   

The Lord will tolerate no strife and division among us.  He expects us to treat others, as we do ourselves.  Men will ultimately adhere to God’s perfect ways or be forever banished from His holy presence.  Nothing that contaminates either God or man will ever enter into His everlasting Kingdom to disturb its peace.  We must be loving, righteous and obedient to inherit eternal life with all of its many benefits.   

2Thessalonians 2:14-17 “Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given [us] everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.”  

As we approach the time for Christ’s return to us, the people of God will resemble Him more and more.  We will go from strength to strength and glory to glory in our walk with Him.  We will resume His ministry on this earth and magnify His name wherever we go and whatever we do.  Our Lord and Savior will be exalted throughout this entire earth through the people who are called by His holy name.   

We are the sons and daughters of God Himself, joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God.  We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Christ as their King.  We will warn them of the impending judgment and urge them to get their souls and spirits right with God.  We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with a renewed fervor, and baptize countless numbers to eternal life as a result.   

Believers will bring peace, order and stability to the earth and prepare it for heaven to be ushered in.  The Kingdom of God will be a literal paradise for all those who are deemed eligible to enter in.  We will lack no good thing, spiritual or temporal.  The Lord will meet all of our needs in abundance.  Anyone who is righteous, loving and obedient will dwell in the presence of almighty God Himself for all eternity.   

Those of us who have served the Lord and been devoted to His people will reap generous rewards for our efforts.  We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory.  He will boast of us to all creation.  We will have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth.  We will be appointed kings and priests of God, so that we can continue to minister to His people, and to rule and reign with Christ.
 

Vessels of Honor 

Romans 9:22-23 “[What] if God, willing to shew [his] wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,” 

There are children of God and children of the devil on this earth.  The Lord has had mercy on all of us and been longsuffering, despite the fact that we have all sinned and fallen short of His glory.  He developed a perfect redemption plan, so that we could be spared His wrath by embracing the truth.  If we repent and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will become new creatures in Him. 

Almighty God knew from the very foundation of the world whom He could call and trust to fulfill His perfect will on this earth.  He created us in His very own image and likeness to embrace divine destinies as His sons and daughters.  We are elect and chosen as vessels of honor for use by the Lord in these last days.  We have a sacred charge to usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God on this earth. 

We cannot be focused on mundane matters and serve God, as we should, at the same time.  We must be emptied out of all that defiles us.  We must crucify our fleshly lusts and forego all of our selfish, soul ambitions in favor of the Lord’s plan and purpose.  He wants us to serve as righteous role models to those who are still lost in sin and darkness and lead them to the light, before it is too late. 

It will be critical that we challenge all mankind to seek the Lord and change their ways in the days that lie ahead.  Our God cannot do anything for those who are ignorant or rebellious.  He will be kind and merciful to all those who are repentant and believe the truth.  However, those who are stubborn and lawless will go to perdition.  Only the righteous will inherit eternal life with all of its many benefits. 

2Timothy 2:19-21 “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, [and] prepared unto every good work.”   

Our God knows His own sons and daughters.  They are created in His image to fulfill divine destinies.  We may not be aware of who we are as of yet, but make no mistake, the Lord will call us to His service as the need arises.  Our part is to surrender all that we are and all that we have to our God, so that He can anoint us with His very own power and glory to serve as His representatives on this earth.   

We must sanctify ourselves of all defilement to our body, soul and spirit.  We should present ourselves as living sacrifices to almighty God, so that He can move through us.  He needs us to exercise our dominion and take back the earth from Satan, the enemy of our souls.  We will be very busy in the critical days that lie ahead, but we are well able to succeed in all that we say and do on His behalf. 

The Lord will equip and empower us, so that we can act in His stead.  We will rescue countless numbers from sin and darkness and make salvation available to them before it is too late.  We will share our faith with power and conviction and baptize many souls in Jesus’ precious name.  We will bring light and life through faith in Jesus Christ to a sick and dying world that is desperate for the truth. 

All men will look to us for guidance and direction as the Day of the Lord approaches.  They will be afraid of all that is coming on them and seek the truth with all their hearts.  We must be fully prepared to lead them into salvation.  They must repent of all their sins and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, in order to be saved to eternal life and to enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God.   

2Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”  

Nothing that we do will be done in our own strength.  The Lord will accomplish mighty feats through a people who are yielded to Him.  He will demonstrate His very own love, mercy and compassion through those of us who are willing to serve others.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions; cast out demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil of any kind; and even raise the dead back to life once again. 

We will confront all world governments and persuade them to adopt godly principles in their dealings with one another.  There will be no more wars, bloodshed or insurrection anywhere.  We will bring peace to the earth, as the Lord desires, and teach all of mankind to dwell together as brothers and sisters.  We will abolish all social injustice and remove class distinctions that cause enmity and separate us from others. 

Poverty and lack will eventually be eradicated, as we teach all of mankind to share their resources with one another.  There will be no more no more disease and death, no needless destruction of the earth or its people.  The Kingdom of God and His government will be advanced on this earth, as it is in heaven.  Jesus Christ will then be free to return to us to set up His everlasting rule and reign, as we have been promised. 

Our Lord and Savior will rule with a rod of iron as righteous King, and He will tolerate no defilement to ever enter into His Kingdom.  The name of the Lord will be magnified everywhere, and all of mankind will learn to worship God in Spirit and in truth or be banished from His holy presence.  Almighty God will make certain that His way of doing things prevails, so that order and stability are restored to His creation. 

Colossians 1:10-12 “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:”  

Everything that we do will give glory to our God and be pleasing to Him.  We will fulfill our divine destinies as His very own sons and daughters and do the works that Jesus did on this earth.  We will be willing bond slaves to Him and resume His ministry on this earth as we are ordained to do.  We will demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion to the entire human race.  

Believers will be peacemakers and providers, preachers and protectors.  We will share our faith as the Lord arranges our contacts and gather in the full end-time harvest of souls that is required before heaven can be brought to this earth realm.  Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will eventually be called, converted and baptized unto eternal life, just as we have been. 

No man, woman or child who longs for the truth will be left behind.  All of the righteous from every nation will enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God.  We will teach all of mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity with one another as brothers and sisters in the Lord.  We will share equally in all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us, so that no one lacks for any good thing. 

We will advance the Kingdom in this world, so that there are sweeping changes made to all of our lives.  It will literally be heaven on the earth for all those who are loving, righteous and obedient.  The wheat will eventually be separated from the chaff and all of the rebellious will be cast into the unquenchable lake of fire.  There will be nothing and no one left that defiles either God or man.
 

God Is Glorified In Us 

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”   

We are God’s masterpieces created in Christ Jesus to do good works that will glorify His holy name.  We were called from the very foundation of the world for such a time as this.  We are elect and chosen to serve as His goodwill ambassadors on the earth.  We will impact the lives of all mankind in the critical days to come.  If we are willing and obedient, the Lord can use us to minister to His people in a significant way. 

If we have sanctified ourselves of all our carnality and selfish soul interests, we will be imbued with divine power and authority to represent our Lord and Savior.  We will resume His ministry where He left off and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Christ as their King.  We will urge others to repent and be converted to the truth.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and baptize many souls to eternal life. 

Nothing will be impossible to us if we follow the Lord’s specific guidance and direction.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions.  There will be no more incurable diseases. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk.  We will cast out all demons that hold men in bondage and oppression of any kind. We will even raise the dead back to life again, just as Jesus Christ Himself did when He walked the earth.  

The Lord has a vision of His people that will revolutionize the entire human race.  He wants us to be operating in full power and dominion.  We will tear down all demonic strongholds that interfere with our work and overcome all evil with good.  This whole world will be positively impacted with the Kingdom of God as it manifests through each of us.  We will glorify our Creator in everything that we think, say and do. 

1Peter 4:10 “As every man hath received the gift, [even so] minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, [let him speak] as the oracles of God; if any man minister, [let him do it] as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”   

We are the Body of Christ – His hands, feet and voice.  He has given us a divine commission, and we will glorify Him as we take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God.  We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good.  Soon there will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere.  We will bring peace, order and stability to all of our human affairs. 

There will be no more class distinctions or social injustice of any kind.  We will challenge all world governments and their leaders to adopt godly principles of fairness and justice in their dealings with one another.  All tyranny and despotism will be eliminated.  Poverty and lack will be totally abolished, as the people of God take control of all the world’s finances. 

All of creation will be impacted by the sons and daughters of God.  We will set it free to the glorious liberty that we enjoy.  Plants and animals will be in harmony and subject to man as they once were in the Garden of Eden.  The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable.  There will be no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction in their wake. 

We will reverse the damaging effects of all forms of pollution.  Our environment will be restored to its original beauty and balance, so that it is the perfect abode for both God and man.  There will be nothing that contaminates or defiles our lives.  All of mankind will revel at the bounty of nature, and share equally in all the vast resources that this universe has to offer us.  

Romans 8:16-18 “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”   

The Holy Spirit bears witness to the fact that we are the children of God.  We call our heavenly Father “Abba” or “Daddy.”  Ours is an intimate relationship that is originated and developed in mutual love and trust.  We have rights and privileges, but sacred responsibilities, as well.  The Lord wants to partner with us in rescuing others from bondage to darkness and deception, before it is too late. 

Our God is proud of those who are called by His holy name that have the courage to step out and do all that He asks of us.  We have divine destinies as His sons and daughters.  We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God, but we must also assume our share of His ministry on this earth.  That may not always be pleasant or easy for us, but we will glorify almighty God in everything that we do. 

It will be vital that we remain very close to the Lord and stay intimately connected with one another.  There is strength in numbers and genuine power in unity.  What happens to one of us, affects us all.  We should bear one another’s burdens and share one another’s joys.  It is very important that we pray for our brothers and sisters and encourage each other, especially as the Day of the Lord approaches. 

We can have hope and confidence for our future.  The Lord has a perfect plan in place for our eternal well-being.  He will never leave us or forsake us.  We will escape His wrath and be gathered into His everlasting Kingdom, as He has promised us.  Christ will share His very own honor and glory with His people.  We will be appointed kings and priests and rule and reign with Him over all the nations.
 

Worthy Of Honor And Glory 

2Thessalonians 1:11-12 “Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of [this] calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of [his] goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”   

The Lord loves us with a deep, unconditional love that transcends anything that we could ever imagine.  He formed us in His very image and likeness to be with Him for all of eternity.  However, sin got in the way of that plan and interrupted our intimate relationship with our God.  He wants us to return to Him and seek the truth, so that we can be permanently reconciled with Him.   

He sent His very own Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem us of all our transgressions and to restore us to right standing with Him.  If we believe in Christ and all that He accomplished on our behalf, we will be saved to eternal life.  We will become new creatures in Him, and our sins will be blotted from God’s memory.  The Lord sees us as being righteous by the merits of the Blood. 

We are now sons and daughters of God and heirs to all of His promises.  We have divine destinies that we must embrace before heaven itself can be brought to this earth in the Kingdom of God.  We must sanctify ourselves and consecrate all of our efforts to serving the Lord and His people.  We will share our faith and rescue countless numbers from sin, darkness and deception. 

Almighty God is relying on us to demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion to the entire human race.  It is not His will that any man perishes for lack of knowledge in the truth.  We will preach the Gospel with zeal and enthusiasm and win many souls in the end-time harvest.  We will heal them of all their afflictions, cast out all demons and even raise the dead back to life again. 

We will be found worthy of our calling and glorify our God in everything that we say and do.  We will advance His Kingdom on this earth and change the fate of all mankind.  People everywhere will be given the opportunity to be saved to eternal life with all its benefits.  No one that is sincere will be left behind when the Lord comes to gather His people to Himself forever. 

1Peter 5:6-10 “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle [you].”   

The Lord can only work through a people who are humble and contrite, yielded and determined to do whatever it takes to bring heaven to this earth.  If we cast our cares on Him, He will be faithful to supply all of our needs in abundance.  There is no good thing that we will ever lack if we put our trust in the Lord.  He is fully behind us in anything that we undertake.  Our God will assign legions of ministering angels to support all our efforts in the critical days to come. 

It will be vital that we be willing and obedient to do all that the Lord requires of us.  We are His special representatives for the Kingdom of God on the earth and everyone will be looking to us for guidance and direction.  Wickedness and evil will soon escalate and only those who are anointed for good will prevail.  The fate of all mankind hangs in the balance and we must not fail.  We will have tests, trials and tribulation, but Christ will be with us in all we are called to do. 

He will strengthen us by the power of His might, as it works through us to deliver others from their bondage to sin and evil.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with real conviction and baptize many souls to eternal life in the process.  Every man, woman and child will have an equal opportunity to be saved.  We will encourage them to repent of all their sins and totally sanctify themselves, so they can join us in entering into the everlasting Kingdom of God.  

We will grow and develop into mature sons and daughters who lead many others into righteousness and godliness.  We will be fitting role models, and teach all of mankind to dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters in the Lord.   They will follow our example and worship our God in Spirit and in truth, as He desires.  The entire earth will be cleansed of all defilement through our efforts, and Jesus Christ will then return to rule and reign as our King. 

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

The people of God will shine with His glorious light, and give hope and confidence to all of mankind in the critical days that lie ahead of us.  We will bring peace, order and stability to this entire earth, so that heaven can be brought here in the Kingdom of God.  There will be no more wars, violence or bloodshed anywhere.  Men will learn to negotiate their differences and share all their resources with one another. 

Strife and division will be abolished.  We will learn to resolve conflict in a positive way.  Poverty and lack will be things of the past.  We will be good stewards of God’s wealth.  Class distinctions and social injustice will not even be named among us.  All of mankind will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.   The children of God will learn to dwell together in unity as brothers and sisters.   

We will command harmony in all of creation, as we eliminate all predatory spirits.  Plants and animals will all be compatible and subject to us once again, as they were in the Garden of Eden.  The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable.  There will be no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction.  All adverse effects of pollution will be reversed and the earth will be cleansed. 

The Kingdom of almighty God will be advanced all over this planet, as the Lord desires.  Jesus Christ will be glorified in those of us who are called by His name.  We will live in a literal paradise on the earth.  The Lord will shower us with abundance and meet all our needs even before we ask Him.  There will be peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for God’s people.   

The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that we have lost or had stolen over the years.  He will change these mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that never get sick and die ever again.  We will dwell in beautiful homes and see our offspring for all generations to come.  All flesh will worship almighty God and be in an intimate relationship with Him, as He has always desired. 

Revelations 5:9-10 “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” 

Jesus Christ will soon return to us as our fair Judge and righteous King.  Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim, that He is “Lord over all of creation.”  He will be glorified in heaven and on the earth as He receives His everlasting Kingdom as His just reward.  He will gather all of the righteous to Himself for all eternity, and banish Satan and all wrongdoers from our midst.  

There will be nothing that ever contaminates either God or man.  Jesus will rule with a rod of iron and enforce godly principles in all of our affairs.  We will dwell in love, peace and unity with both men and angels.  The Lord will meet all of our needs in abundance even before we ask Him.  There will be no death and disease, no strife and division, no poverty and lack ever again. 

Our heavenly Father will come and take up residence with His people in the Kingdom of God forever more.  There will be no more separation between God and man.  We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth and celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts.  The Lord will fellowship intimately with us as His very own sons and daughters. 

Christ will share His honor and glory with those who have faithfully served Him and ministered to His people.  We will judge both men and angels and even be appointed as kings and priests of almighty God.  We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance.  We will rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world as we are destined to do.
 

Glorious Overcomers 

1John 5:4-5 “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” 

If we have been born again and baptized with the Holy Spirit, we will eventually overcome the world, our flesh and the devil.  Neither our carnal lusts, nor mundane things or even the gates of hell will prevail against us.  We will be victorious in all that we say and do.  Our faith in Jesus Christ will help us to be conquerors.  We will take back this entire earth for the Kingdom of God. 

We have been given divine power and authority to discharge our duties.  We will preach the Word of God and see many converted to our faith.  We will baptize countless souls in the end-time harvest and make salvation available to all of mankind, before it is too late.  We will rescue those who are in perpetual bondage to sin and evil and set them free to receive the gift of eternal life. 

The Lord will work through us to minister to His people in love, mercy and compassion.  We will lay hands on the sick and they will all recover.  We will cast out demons in Jesus’ mighty name and watch them flee.  We will even raise the dead back to life again, so that they can join us in entering into the Kingdom of God.

Nothing will be impossible if we are diligent to do all that God asks of us.  

We will ultimately bring peace, order and stability to this entire planet and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Christ as their King.  We will demonstrate that almighty God is still in charge of His creation and set matters straight in the natural world.  There will be total harmony in the plant and animal kingdoms and the climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable.  

1Peter 1:5-7 “Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:” 

We have important roles in the Lord’s eternal redemption plan.  We must exercise our God-given dominion over all things on this earth.  It will not be easy; we will have various tests, trials and tribulation.  Our faith will be challenged, and others will scorn and deride us for following the one, true God.  We will have to be girded with strength in our spirits, so that we can overcome all obstacles.  

Believers will confront all world governments and urge them to adopt godly principles in dealing with one another.  We will abolish all wars, violence and conflict from our human affairs.  There will be no more poverty and lack that keeps men in bondage.  We will share all the vast resources of the universe with one another.  All people will soon be treated with fairness, dignity and respect. 

We will take the Kingdom of God by sheer determination and overthrow all demonic strongholds that impede our progress.  Nothing will deter or detain us in serving the Lord.  There will soon be peace, order and stability established everywhere, so Jesus Christ can return to the earth to commence His eternal rule and reign.  He will share His very own honor and glory with His followers. 

Revelations 2:26 “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:”

Our Lord and Savior will soon return to us to set up His everlasting Kingdom on this earth, as He has promised.  He will judge the living and the dead, the church and the nations.  Only He can determine who is deserving of eternal blessings and rewards.  He will banish Satan and all of his minions to the bottomless pit and cast all evildoers into the unquenchable lake of fire. 

There will be no more disease and death.  The Lord will change our mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms.  He will meet all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him.  We will have safety and security; nothing will ever harm or defile us ever again.  Jesus Christ will make certain that His people are healthy, happy and prosperous for all of eternity. 

Those of us who have faithfully served Our Lord and Savior will be sharing in His honor and glory.  He will appoint us to be kings and priests of God, so that we can continue to minister to His people.  We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance.  We will judge both men and angels, and teach them how to worship our God in Spirit and in truth. 

The Lord will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters, and fellowship intimately with us as He always desired.  All men will be righteous and holy or be removed from our midst.  They will learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity.  We will rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world and enforce godly principles.

 

Chapter 6 - God Gives Power To His People 

Isaiah 40:29-31 “He giveth power to the faint; and to [them that have] no might he increaseth strength.  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.”   

Almighty God knew us from before the foundation of the world and He has great plans for our lives.  We are His very own sons and daughters, who will partner with Him in rescuing the entire world from destruction.  The Lord will move through His people who are called by His name.  If we wait upon Him, we will rise up with wings like eagles and manifest His awesome presence on earth, just as it is in heaven. 

The Lord wants all of His people to be strong and powerful in His might, so that we can overturn the kingdom of darkness and occupy this earth until Jesus Christ returns to us.  If we are sanctified of all our carnality and selfish soul ambitions, we can be used to work miracles, signs and wonders in His name.  We will be imbued with His very own divine power and authority to accomplish great feats in the days ahead.  

The Holy Spirit will work through us to impact the fate of all mankind.  We will destroy all demonic strongholds that hold men in bondage to sin and evil.  There will be no more darkness and deception that separates man from God.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ will be preached with conviction and the end-time harvest of souls will be gathered in its entirety, so that the righteous can enter into the Kingdom of God. 

If we rely upon the Lord and seek His guidance and direction, absolutely anything will be possible to us.  He will anoint us as He did Jesus Christ, and we will resume His ministry where He left off.  We will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.  We will cast out demons in His name and they will flee.  If we are confident in all of the power and authority that we have been given, we will even raise the dead back to life. 

Romans 8:14-16 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:” 

The Holy Spirit of God will come and dwell in our spirits if we invite Him.  The Lord will always respond favorably to our request for more of Him.  There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us.  We are the sons and daughters of God Himself, and He will soon boast of us to all creation.  We will rescue countless numbers from sin and evil and make eternal life available to all those who are receptive.   

We can trust that almighty God will deliver us from all evil and keep us from being entangled again in the things of this world, if we present our bodies as living sacrifices to Him.  He will uphold us with His very own right hand, and give us divine favor and grace in all that we think, say and do.  He will enable us to succeed in all that we attempt to do to advance His Kingdom on this earth, just as it is in heaven. 

The people of God will be imbued with power and authority from on high to achieve the virtually impossible on His behalf.  If we consecrate and dedicate ourselves to the Lord’s plan and purpose, we will revolutionize this entire earth in the critical days to come.  We will bring peace, order and stability to all of our human affairs, as we are destined to do, and establish godly principles as the standard to follow. 

Ephesians 6:10-12 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].” 

We will have to put on the whole armor of God in the critical days that lie ahead of us.  We are not wrestling against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities, spiritual wickedness in high places.

The devil knows that his time on this earth is short and that the people of God are anointed to overthrow all wickedness and evil.  He will do everything he can to deter and detain us. 

However, we will strike back offensively and overcome all evil with good, as we are destined to do.  We will confront all world governments and challenge them to establish godly principles in their dealings with one another.  We will abolish all wars, violence, bloodshed and conflict from off the face of the entire earth.  There will soon be peace, order and stability everywhere we look. 

Poverty and lack will become things of the past, as we persuade all men to share their possessions with those who are less fortunate.  The Lord will transfer the wealth of the wicked to the righteous, so that we can become clearinghouses for His bounty.  All of the vast resources of the universe will be at our disposal.  The people of God will not want for any good thing, spiritual or temporal.  

We will speak to all of creation and restore it to its original beauty and balance.  It has been in turmoil for thousands of years and the enemy has wreaked havoc on all forms of life.  We will command plants and animals to be in perfect harmony with one another.  The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable, and all natural disasters and pollution will be things of the past. 

Luke 10:19-20 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”   

Our goal will be to take back this earth for the Kingdom of God and present it to Jesus Christ on His return.  We will destroy all demonic strongholds that impede our progress or try to deter us from completing our mission.  Nothing will be able to harm us.  We will have safety and security in all that we do on God’s behalf.  He will give His angels charge of us to protect us in all our ways. 

We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil, and they will be subject to us.  We will operate with a spirit of power and authority that exceeds anything that this world has ever seen.  We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself.  Our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, and nothing will stop us from entering into His awesome presence as He desires.  

The everlasting Kingdom of God will be the solution to all of our problems and the answer to all of our prayers.  It will be heaven on this earth for all those who are counted worthy to enter into it.  Every righteous man, woman and child who is loving and obedient will inherit eternal life there.  We will enjoy blessings in abundance and receive generous rewards for all our faithfulness.
 

Anointing Power And Authority 

2Corinthians 1:20-22 “For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.  Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, [is] God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.” 

Ever since we made Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives and confessed Him before God and man, we have been changed as never before.  He has given us a full measure of His very own Holy Spirit.  All the promises of God belong to us now, and we are actually seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.  We have extraordinary power and authority available to us. 

If we sanctify ourselves of all of our carnality and selfish soul ambitions, and consecrate our lives to serving the Lord, we will be anointed just as Jesus was when He walked this earth.  Nothing will in any way be impossible to us.  We will embrace our divine destinies and manifest God’s presence in this world.  We will demonstrate His deep, abiding love, mercy and compassion for His people.   

We will share the good news of the Kingdom of God and baptize countless numbers in Jesus’ mighty name.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons that hold men in bondage to their sin.  We will make eternal life available to all those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.  No righteous man, woman or child will ever be denied entry into the Kingdom of God. 

Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound;” 

The very same Spirit that rested on Jesus Christ during His time with us will be transferred to those who follow after Him.  If we do our part and maintain spiritual integrity, the Lord will anoint us just as He did our Lord and Savior.  We will operate in the supernatural realm and accomplish mighty feats in His name.  The Gospel will be preached with power and conviction, and all those who are receptive will be saved. 

We will set all of mankind free in the truth and the full number of souls will be gathered in the end-time harvest.  All of their bondage and oppression will leave them.  No one who is sincere, humble and contrite will ever be left behind.  We will usher them into the Kingdom of God and prepare their hearts for Christ’s rule and reign.  We will teach all men to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters in the Lord.   

All world governments will be confronted with the truth.  We will insist that they establish godly principles of fairness and justice in all of their affairs.  Wars, violence and conflict will disappear off the face of the earth.  Poverty and lack will be no more, as we persuade men of affluence to share all of their resources with others.  Social injustice will soon fade away and all mankind will be treated with dignity and respect. 

We will speak to all of creation and restore it to its original beauty and balance as it was in the Garden.  We will command harmony in the natural world and all plants and animals will be compatible and subject to man once again.  We will reverse all the adverse effects of pollution and cleanse the earth of all defilement.  Even the climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable, so there are no more natural disasters. 

1John 2:27 “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.”

No one will have to instruct us in what we should do or say.  We will not labor in our own strength or act on our own authority.  The Holy Spirit of almighty God will teach us all that we need to know to be totally effective in fulfilling our divine destinies.  The Lord has a perfect plan in place for the eternal redemption of mankind, and we are His ambassadors on this earth to make certain that it is implemented. 

Jesus Christ will lead us and guide us in completing His ministry where He left off.  We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to dwell in His holy presence.  We will establish peace, order and stability in all of our affairs, so that God’s will is done on earth, as it is in heaven.  The Kingdom of God will be ushered in and advanced everywhere.  This entire world, as we know it, will be renewed and transformed. 

Men will no longer be at odds with one another.  There will be peace, order and stability in our lives.  We will dwell in safety and security, joy and freedom, with genuine hope and confidence for our future.  We will share in all the resources that this vast universe has to offer us, and never lack any good thing, either spiritual or temporal.  The Lord will be glorified in His people who are called by His holy name. 

Revelation 1:5-6 “And from Jesus Christ, [who is] the faithful witness, [and] the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”  

Jesus Christ will soon appear to judge all men – both the living and the dead – to see who has been righteous and who has been wicked and rebellious. He will tolerate no sin and evil in His presence.  He will cast Satan and all of his minions into the bottomless pit and all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire.  There will be no defilement ever permitted to enter into His everlasting Kingdom. 

The Lord will gather all of the righteous to Himself, as He has promised us that He will.  He will change these mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms like His very own.  He will vindicate us before both men and angles and restore all that has been stolen from us.  Christ will take vengeance on all of our enemies and rule and reign with a rod of iron to protect His people from all harm. 

We will have peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom in His awesome presence.  There will no longer be a separation between God and man ever again.  We will dwell with Him for all of eternity.  All flesh will soon worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth.  We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with genuine joy and gladness in our hearts. 

Almighty God will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters.  We will share in Christ’s honor and glory and inherit His everlasting Kingdom as our legacy for righteousness.  He will appoint us kings and priests of God and we will judge both men and angels.  We will have the heathen for our inheritance and rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world.
 

Sons of God 

John 1:12-13 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” 

We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself through faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  He now counts us as His beloved and He will withhold no good thing from our lives.  He will imbue us with His very own divine power and authority to take back this entire earth for the everlasting Kingdom of God.   Nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days that lie ahead of us. 

Miracles, signs and wonders will follow us wherever we go.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with zeal and enthusiasm and see countless numbers baptized in His name.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions.  The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk.  We will cast out demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil and even raise the dead back to life. 

All of mankind will know that we are called of God to usher in His Kingdom on this earth.  They will comply with our directives to establish peace, order and stability in all of our human affairs.  There will be no more war, violence or conflict anywhere.  Social injustice will be a thing of the past and all people will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect in the government of almighty God. 

Philippians 2:15 “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;”   

We will not be defiled by the things of this world, nor subject to its unjust laws and ordinances.  We will be godly role models at all times instead, and teach others to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.  Men will share all of their material resources with one another, and poverty and lack will finally be eliminated.  There will be peace on the earth and all Christ’s enemies will be placed underneath His feet.   

Disease and death will have no hold over us.  We will lay hands on the sick and they will all recover.  Men will no longer be oppressed or held in bondage to sin and evil of any kind.  We will make eternal life available to all those who are receptive to it, and advance Christ’s Kingdom on this earth even before He returns to us.  No righteous man, woman or child will be left behind as He comes to gather us to Himself. 

Believers will shine with the light of Jesus Christ Himself and dispel all darkness and deception that threaten to overtake us.  We will operate in genuine power and conviction and tear down all demonic strongholds that would impede our progress or detain our efforts to usher in the Kingdom of God.  Satan will no longer be the god of this world, as we rise up and fully operate in our kingly and priestly anointing. 

Romans 8:19-21 “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same] in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”  

All of creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons and daughters of almighty God.  We will set it free to the glorious liberty that we experience.  All power and authority to take dominion over the earth will be granted to us.  We will speak to the plants and animals and they will be in total harmony with one another and subject to man, just as they once were in the Garden of Eden. 

We will ultimately regulate the climate, so that it is always temperate and predictable and conducive to supporting all life forms.  There will be no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction in their wake.  We will make certain that all types of pollution are reversed.  The entire earth will be cleansed of its defilement, so that heaven itself can be brought here in the Kingdom of God. 

There will be no more wars, violence or conflicts that interfere with our relationships with one another.  Social injustice and class distinctions will be things of the past.  We will bring peace, order and stability to this whole planet, as we are destined to do.   The Lord will send legions of ministering angels to assist us in all of our efforts to advance His Kingdom on the earth, just as it is in heaven.   

1John 3:1-2 “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” 

Those in the world may not recognize us at this point, but they will soon bow to our authority that is divinely ordained to impact the fate of all mankind.  We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders to attest to our faith and to demonstrate the love, mercy and compassion that the Lord has for His people.  We will improve circumstances wherever we go and overcome all evil with good. 

The good news of the Kingdom of God will be spread to every race, tongue and nation.  Men will have hope and confidence for their future.  Countless souls will be gathered in the end-time harvest.  We will preach the Gospel and baptize all those who are repentant in Jesus’ holy name.  They will receive the gift of eternal life and then become eligible to enter into His everlasting Kingdom. 

Our Lord and Savior will soon return to us, and judge all men and even angels to determine who will inherit His Kingdom.  He will banish all wickedness and evil off the face of the earth, and gather the righteous to Himself as He promised.  We will share in His honor and glory and be appointed kings and priests of God to rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world.
 

Divine Commission 

Colossians 2:6-10 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, [so] walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:”   

We were created for such a time as this.  All believers are called of God to fulfill divine destinies that were ordained for us from the very foundation of the world.  Unfortunately, not everyone will respond to the Lord’s call on their life.  Only a select few are sensitive enough to the Lord’s voice to present their bodies as living sacrifices in service to Him and His people.   

Those who do consecrate and dedicate all of their efforts to God’s eternal plan and purpose will be used mightily of Him in the critical days to come.  We will rescue all of mankind from darkness and deception and take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God.  We will destroy all demonic strongholds that hold men in bondage to sin and evil, and thwart Satan’s schemes. 

We will resume Christ’s ministry where He left off when He went to be with His Father, and share our faith with genuine power and conviction.  The Gospel will be preached to all the nations of the world, as Jesus intended, and the full number of souls that is required will be gathered in the end-time harvest.  Every man, woman and child will have an opportunity to be saved.  

Believers will serve as the Lord’s goodwill ambassadors for the Kingdom of God.  We will be righteous role models and uncompromisingly loving and obedient.  We will demonstrate the very love, mercy and compassion of almighty God Himself for His people at all times.  We will bring heaven itself to this earth realm by establishing godly principles in all our human affairs. 

Mark 16:15-18 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”   

Miracles, signs and wonders will follow us wherever we go.  We will speak with new tongues and nothing will in any way harm us.  We will preach the Gospel with zeal and enthusiasm and see huge numbers of souls converted to our faith.  We will baptize men, women and children in Jesus’ name and make certain that they receive the gift of eternal life. 

Those who repent of their sins and sincerely believe in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be saved by the merits of His precious Blood.  However, those who are ignorant and rebellious will be banished from His holy presence for all of eternity.  Only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be gathered into the Kingdom of God.   

Believers will lay hands on the sick and infirm and they will all be healed.  The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk through our efforts.  We will cast out any demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil of any kind and set them free in the truth.  We will even raise the dead back to life again through the operation of the Holy Spirit.  

Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.”   

Jesus Christ has given us a divine commission to fulfill before He returns to us.  All power and authority in heaven and earth was conferred on Him and He has delegated that to His followers.  We will resume His ministry where He left off when He went to be with His heavenly Father.  We will walk just as He did and do the works that He did on this earth, and even greater works.   

We will confront all wickedness that we see and bind its operation in our lives.  All world governments will be challenged to line up with godly principles of fairness and justice or be banished off the face of the earth.  Poverty and lack will bow to the name of Jesus Christ and be eradicated once and for all.  Social injustice and class distinctions will not even be named among us. 

There will be no more wars, violence, bloodshed or conflict in any of our human affairs.  Peace, order and stability will be established everywhere, as the Lord desires.  All men will share their valuable resources with those who are less fortunate.  God’s people will dwell in love and unity with one another as brothers and sisters, and advance His everlasting Kingdom on this earth. 

Ephesians 3:20-21 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,  Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. 

The people of almighty God will shine with His glorious light and be a beacon of hope to all those who are still lost in sin, darkness and deception.  All of mankind will flock to us to learn our secrets for happiness, health and prosperity.  We will point them to the Lord, Jesus Christ, and encourage them to repent, be saved and baptized to eternal life through a sincere faith in Him. 

We will share our faith with power and conviction, and see countless numbers brought into the everlasting Kingdom of God.  We will heal them of all their afflictions.  There will be no sick or infirm among us ever again.  We will cast out all demons that hold men in bondage of any kind, and destroy all of the satanic strongholds that interfere with our work or detain our progress. 

All of creation will be restored to its original beauty and balance through our efforts.  We will command total harmony in the plant and animal kingdoms.  There will be no more predatory spirit, and all forms of environmental pollution will be reversed.  We will even speak to the climate and regulate it, so that there are no more natural catastrophes that cause death and destruction. 

Nothing will be impossible to Christ’s followers in the critical days that lie ahead of us before His return.  We will prepare the entire earth for heaven to be brought here, and usher in the Kingdom of God as we are destined to do.  The Lord will work in us and through us to refresh and renew all things in this world to line up with His eternal redemption plan and purpose for all mankind.  
 

One Body In Him 

1Corinthians 12:12-14 “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also [is] Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.  For the body is not one member, but many.”   

Christ still rules and reigns through those of us who are called by His holy name.  He is the Head and we are His Body on this earth.  We are His very own hands, feet and voice until He returns to receive His everlasting Kingdom from us.  We have divine destinies to fulfill in the critical days that lie ahead.  The future of all of mankind depends on our faithfulness and devotion.    

There is no distinction between males or females, Jews or Gentiles in the Body of Christ.  We are all one in Him.  Each of us is important to the Lord’s plan and purpose.  We are to overlook the differences that separate us from one another and walk in love, peace and unity so that we can be anointed with divine power and authority.  We must be fully unified in all of our efforts.   

The Lord wants a people who are called by His holy name to do everything that He instructs them to do.   The anointing will only rest on us if we eliminate strife and division in our midst.  We will accomplish a great deal more by cooperating with one another, rather than trying to do things all on our own.  If we combine all our efforts, we will walk in miracles, signs and wonders. 

Colossians 1:18-19 “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence. For it pleased [the Father] that in him should all fulness dwell;” 

Christ is the Head of His Body on this earth, and the fullness of God dwells in Him.  He is the firstborn of many brethren, and we are all members one of another.  His Holy Spirit will be imparted to each and every one of us, so that we can walk just as He did on this earth.  We will do the very works that Jesus did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with His Father.  

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and give men hope and confidence for their future.  Every man, woman and child will have the opportunity to be born again to eternal life through Jesus Christ.  We will lay hands on the sick, and they will all recover.  We will cast out demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil and even raise the dead back to life. 

God’s way of doing things will prevail on this earth, just as it does in heaven.  There will be peace, order and stability established everywhere.  We will eliminate social injustice, so that all men are treated with fairness, dignity and respect.  Poverty and lack will soon disappear, as the wealth of the wicked is redistributed to the righteous for sharing with all those in need. 

Ephesians 1:19-23 “And what [is] the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set [him] at his own right hand in the heavenly [places], Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all [things] under his feet, and gave him [to be] the head over all [things] to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”   

The Lord will manifest Himself through His people, who are called by His name, in the days to come before Christ returns to us.  He will anoint us with divine power and authority to usher in His everlasting Kingdom.  Nothing will be impossible to us.  We will share our faith and baptize countless numbers in Jesus’ name.  Every race, tongue and nation will be touched with the endless love of God. 

All of creation is waiting for us to be revealed so that we can set matters straight in the natural world.  Plants and animals will soon be in total harmony and subject to man once again, as they were in the Garden of Eden.  The climate will be stabilized, so that there are no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction.  All pollution will be reversed and the earth will be cleansed of its defilement. 

We will heal those who are sick and afflicted in any way, and cast out demons that hold them in bondage to sin and evil.  There will be no more disease and death, as we put all Christ’s enemies underneath His feet.  We will tear down all demonic strongholds that interfere with our efforts or try to impede our progress.  The Kingdom of God will be taken by force and ushered into this earth realm in record time. 

Colossians 3:12-15 “Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also [do] ye. And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”   

We must learn to walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh in the days to come, if we wish to be totally victorious in all that we attempt to do for the Lord.  We will meet with many obstacles to our faith, yet we will still overcome the world, our flesh and the devil.  We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus, and He will lead and direct us, so that we can complete His ministry. 

It is vital that we permit the fruit of the Spirit to grow and develop in us.  That will transform us into fully mature, victorious Christians.  We must learn to be kind and merciful towards others, meek and humble in all that we say and do.  All of mankind will be looking to us for guidance and direction, and we must be fitting role models for righteousness, love and obedience at all times. 

We will glorify almighty God in everything that we think, say and do in the days ahead.  He will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters.  We will become holy and perfect, and teach all of mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity with one another.  They will learn to worship our God in Spirit and in truth, and give Him all the thanks and praise that He deserves.
 

The Hour of Power And Glory 

Isaiah 60:1-2 “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”  

The power and glory of almighty God will rest on His people in the days to come before Christ returns to us.  He will manifest Himself to the entire world through His very own sons and daughters.  We will demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion for the entire human race.  We will rescue all those who are still lost in sin, darkness and deception and make eternal life available to everyone who is receptive. 

We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders to prove that our God is still in control of all things.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ will be preached to every race, tongue and nation as a testament to our faith.  We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life once again.  All of mankind will know, for a fact, that we are called of God and anointed to do His will on the earth, as it is in heaven.   

The weapons of our warfare will be our very own words that line up with the powerful Word of almighty God.  We will decree and declare what will be.  We will exercise our God-given dominion and rule and reign in this world.  We will bind Satan and all his minions and loose blessings to all of mankind.  We will speak life and light to all our circumstances and see the Kingdom of God advanced everywhere we go.   

The people of God will bring peace, order and stability to the entire world, as we are destined to do.  There will be no more wars and violence, nor social injustice of any kind.  Poverty and lack will disappear.  All men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.  They will ultimately learn to live together in love and unity as brothers and sisters, or be banished from the Lord’s awesome presence for all of eternity. 

Jeremiah 1:10 “See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.” 

God’s people have been chosen to usher in His everlasting Kingdom in the critical days to come before Christ returns.  We will be anointed with divine power and authority to implement His will on this earth, as it is in heaven.  We will enforce His way of doing things as the norm in all of our human affairs.  We will abolish anything that does not line up with His impeccable standards. 

We will confront all world governments to make certain that they adhere to godly Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all.  Those countries and their leaders who will not comply will soon be eradicated off the face of the earth.  All men will have to learn to dwell in peace with one another, and share all their resources.  The Lord will tolerate no strife and division in any of us. 

Social injustice will not ever be permitted to enter in to the Kingdom of almighty God.  All of mankind will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.  There will be no class consciousness, nor prejudice of any kind against any of God’s people.  Poverty and lack will soon disappear off the face of the earth.  Men will share equally in all the vast resources that this universe has to offer us. 

Isaiah 13:3-4 “I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, [even] them that rejoice in my highness. The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.” 

We have a sacred charge that has been given to us as the sons and daughters of almighty God.  We will prepare the entire earth for heaven to be ushered in here.  It may not all be pleasant or easy for us, but we are up to the challenge.  We will cleanse the world of all its violence and conflict, greed and oppression. All evil will be overcome with good, as it manifests through the people of God.  

Very soon now, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will return with all of His angels and saints to take the Kingdom of God by force.  He will destroy all evil in the wrath of His coming.  He will tolerate nothing that defiles or contaminates God or man to ever enter into His Kingdom.  He will banish Satan and his minions to the abyss and cast wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire. 

The Kingdom of God will be paradise on this earth for all those who are righteous, loving and obedient.  It will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems.  However, those who are lawless and rebel against almighty God will be eliminated forever more.  Jesus Christ will rule and reign with a rod of iron to protect us against anything that may harm us in any way. 

We will enjoy peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security for all of eternity.  The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and complete our redemption in spirit, soul and body.  He will share His very own honor and glory with us.  We will judge both men and angels, and be appointed kings and priests of God to rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. 

 

Chapter 7 - The Kingdom Comes With Power 

Zephaniah 2:2-3 “Before the decree bring forth, [before] the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.”   

It is not too late; we can still seek the Lord and possibly divert His anger.  He has given mankind every opportunity to repent of sin and get it right.  We have no excuse; redemption is available to each and every one of us. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been preached throughout the world to every race, tongue and nation.  Men, women and children have had a chance to hear the truth and be baptized in Jesus’ name.   

The Lord has been infinitely patient with us despite our stubbornness and rebellion.  He has sent us stern warnings and supernatural signs that all point to the end of life in this world, as we know it.  He will be compelled to act on His Word and settle all scores in the very near future.  If we continue to ignore His advances, our fate will be dark and dismal.  There are no second chances that will be given to anyone. 

If we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we will be redeemed from our sins and escape the Lord’s wrath that is soon to come on the entire earth.  There is no other way to be spared and receive eternal life with all of its many benefits.  We must appropriate the righteousness that was bought and paid for with Christ’s very own Blood, or we will be condemned to everlasting punishment for our sinfulness. 

Revelation 14:6-7 “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”  

We are rapidly approaching the point of no return.  We have had ample warning; our Creator is not pleased with what is happening in this world.  Things have gotten out of hand.  Moral depravity is on the rise and men steadfastly refuse to seek God and repent of their sins.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ is still being rejected by many, and the Lord has no other recourse but to intervene. 

Things will not continue on this earth as they have been.  Very soon now, almighty God will muster His troops, and sovereignly move to set matters straight once and for all.  The Kingdom of God will come with power and glory unmatched in all of creation.  The Lord will show Himself strong on behalf of His people and rescue them from all the wickedness and evil that threaten them. 

There is an impending judgment that is planned for all of mankind.  Jesus Christ will soon return to the earth and destroy all iniquity in the wrath of His coming.  He will judge all men, and even angels, to determine who will receive eternal blessings and rewards and who will be punished.  He will banish Satan to the abyss and cast the rebellious into the unquenchable lake of fire. 

Nothing that is evil will ever enter into the Kingdom of God to disturb its tranquility.  Christ will protect and defend His people against all wickedness that threatens to defile them.  Nothing will ever harm us or cause us pain.  Jesus will rule and reign with a rod of iron and enforce godly principles in all of our affairs.  There will finally be peace on this earth and divine justice will prevail. 

Exodus 15:6-7 “Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, [which] consumed them as stubble”  

The wicked will no longer rule the earth.  Jesus Christ will return to level all playing fields.  He will judge all men to determine who will enter into His Kingdom and who will be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire.  He will banish Satan and his minions to the abyss, and rule and reign as a righteous King with a rod of iron to make certain that we are always safe and secure. 

The Lord will no longer tolerate evil to run rampant on this planet and destroy the innocent.  He will cleanse it of all its defilement and usher in His everlasting Kingdom to the earth, as He has promised us.  He will gather all of the righteous to Himself for all of eternity.  There will be no more wicked men or angels to contaminate us and interfere with our blessings. 

Almighty God will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us.  He will heal all of our pain and suffering, and even blot it from our memories.  He will change these mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that are impervious to disease and death.  We will dwell in His presence and He will meet all of our needs in abundance. 

Haggai 2:7-9 “And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. The silver [is] mine, and the gold [is] mine, saith the LORD of hosts. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”   

The kingdoms of this world will be shaken and realigned to adhere to godly principles of peace, order and stability or disappear off the face of the earth.  They will be redefined and restructured, so that all men are treated with fairness, dignity and respect.  If their people are righteous, they will eventually be absorbed into the political and social infrastructure of the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God.  

Christ will destroy all evil in the wrath of His coming.  He will take vengeance on all the enemies of His people and bind up all of our wounds.  We will no longer remember the pain and suffering that we experienced at the hands of the wicked.  He will mercifully blot it from our memories and replace it with health, happiness and prosperity.  We will thrive in His awesome presence forever.

The Kingdom of God will revolutionize the entire earth and change it into a veritable paradise for both God and man to enjoy forever more.  The Lord will meet all of our needs in abundance from all the vast resources that this universe has to offer us.  There will be no death and destruction, no poverty and lack, no more social injustice, nor strife and division of any kind to mar its peace and tranquility. 

We will all dwell together as brothers and sisters in love and unity and the Lord will bless us abundantly.  The glory of this latter house of God will far exceed anything that the world has ever seen.  The Kingdom of God will be heaven on this earth for all of the righteous who enter into it.  We will commune with both men and angels and worship our God in Spirit and in truth, as He so richly deserves.
 

Signs And Wonders To Prepare Us 

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.”  

There have been many notable signs and wonders in all of creation that point to the return of Jesus Christ to this earth.  We are being given ample notice of the Day of the Lord that is quickly approaching.  It can happen any time now and we must be prepared.  All those who repent and seek almighty God will be saved from His anger and wrath, but the wicked will hide for fear of what is to come upon them.  

The people of God will shine with His glorious light in these last days before Christ returns to us.  The Holy Spirit of almighty God Himself will descend on us and enable us to work miracles, signs and wonders in His name.  We will prophesy of things to come and warn all of mankind of the impending judgment.  The Lord will have us preach the Gospel with power and conviction so that no one perishes. 

Men, women and even children will represent Jesus Christ to all of mankind.  We will make the truth available to every race, tongue and nation in this world.  We will gather in the full end-time harvest of souls that is necessary before heaven can be brought to the earth.  We will urge others to repent and accept Christ as Lord and Savior, so that they can receive the gift of eternal life with all its many blessings. 

Many will eventually seek the Lord and be baptized in His holy name.  We will heal them of all their afflictions and cast out demons that hold them in bondage to sin and evil of any kind.  We will even raise the dead back to life once again, as a dramatic witness to the awesome power of our God.  All of mankind will take notice and have an ample opportunity to choose where they will spend all of eternity. 

Luke 21:7-12 “And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign [will there be] when these things shall come to pass? And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am [Christ]; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end [is] not by and by. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”   

The Lord is giving us plenty of time to repent and be saved from the wrath that is to come on all of the wicked and rebellious.  There are signs and wonders taking place all over the earth today that point to the return of Jesus Christ and the impending judgment.  Many false teachers try to lead men astray.  They are enemy agents, who are bound on destroying God’s people. 

There are wars and rumors of wars that unsettle us and constantly keep us at odds with one another.  There is no peace on this earth.  Poverty and lack loom over all men.  Earthquakes, tidal waves and other natural disasters bring death and destruction in their wake.  Famines and pestilence are running rampant all over the face of the earth and threaten the future of all mankind.   

The hearts of most men have grown cold and evil abounds more than good in this world.  The people of almighty God are being scorned and derided, taunted and ridiculed, even persecuted and imprisoned for their faith.  However, none of this will be permanent.  The Lord has a plan in place for the redemption of His people, and the deliverance from all that threatens them. 

Very soon now, He will sovereignly move to rectify all injustice and annihilate His enemies.  He will send Jesus Christ back to this earth to level all playing fields.  He will return as the King of kings and Lord of lords.  All of His angels and saints will accompany Him to restore peace, order and stability to this planet.  The Kingdom of God will be ushered in with power and glory. 

Matthew 24:29-31 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”  

The world, as we know it, is lost in darkness and deception.  Many are wicked and depraved, and they devour one another.  Believers have suffered much persecution in sharing the Gospel and they are often discouraged.  However, we cannot allow fear, doubt and unbelief to separate us from our blessings.  There is a just retribution that we can expect, if we do not faint and give up in these critical days ahead. 

The Lord will not permit His people to go through tests, trials and tribulation indefinitely.  He is loving, merciful and compassionate towards us.  He knows that we have struggled with our faith and done everything that we can to share the truth with others.  He will soon deliver us from everything that threatens to defile or harm us, and gather us to Himself for all of eternity in the everlasting Kingdom of God.    

Every eye will see what is coming.  Make no mistake about it; the Lord will get our attention before He moves.  The sun and the moon will be darkened and there will be signs in the heavens and on the earth.  There will be a world-wide earthquake, as Christ returns and sets His foot on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem.  Men’s hearts will fail them for fear for what is coming on all the inhabitants of this earth. 

Jesus Christ is not returning as the meek and mild Lamb of God this time.  He is the Lion of Judah, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who will bring justice to the world in the government of almighty God.  He will settle all scores and take vengeance on all of His enemies.  He will destroy all wickedness and evil in the wrath of His coming.  Nothing that contaminates our God or His people will remain anywhere.
 

The Day Of The Lord 

Joel 2:1-3 “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for [it is] nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, [even] to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land [is] as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.”   

The Lord never acts before He announces His intentions to His people.  We have had more than adequate notice about what is to take place on the earth in these last days.  The world, as we know it now, will soon pass away.  Our God is a consuming fire, and He will cleanse and purge this planet of all defilement, before He ushers in the everlasting Kingdom of God. 

He will muster a mighty army of both angels and saints to do His bidding.  They will successfully implement His perfect will and destroy all demonic strongholds.  They will rid the world of evil and gather all of the righteous from the four winds.  There will soon be peace, order and stability established everywhere.  Heaven itself will come to this earth. 

The Kingdom of God will be a literal paradise for both God and man to enjoy.  We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden.  All of creation will be subject to us again.  Plants and animals will be in total harmony and the climate will be temperate and predictable.  There will be no ill effects from pollution, no natural disasters that cause death and destruction. 

2Peter 3:10 “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” 

The Day of the Lord will come unexpectedly.  Our God will sovereignly move and impact the entire planet with His power and glory.  Nothing will remain the same.  The earth, as we know it, will be forever changed.  He will destroy all evil in His wrath and bring judgment on all of His creatures.  No one will escape His scrutiny or be able to persuade Him to lower any of His standards. 

There will be no second chances given to either men or angels.  Wrongdoers will soon perish, but the righteous will be gathered to the Lord for all of eternity.  Almighty God will consume all wickedness and evil with the fire of His jealousy.   He will right all wrongs and settle all scores.  The entire earth will be purged and cleansed of anything that is defiling or detrimental to His people.   

Wars, violence and conflict will be eradicated.  There will be no more poverty and lack, no disease and death, no sin and darkness anywhere.  Everything will be made new again, and the Kingdom of God will be ushered in with a flourish.  The future of all mankind will be impacted.  Those who have been faithful will receive eternal blessings, but the rebellious will be banished to the lake of fire. 

Luke 21:25-28 “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”   

The coming of the Lord will be unmistakable.  All of creation will groan and travail as the Kingdom of God is birthed on this earth.  The entire cosmos will be shaken, and many of the people will be in fear and perplexity for what is coming on them.  Christ will descend from the clouds and all eyes will see Him.  He will return with all of His angels and saints to set matters straight.   

He will not be a meek and mild Lamb of God this time.  He has vengeance in His heart to destroy all of His enemies.  There will be no more wicked and rebellious men or angels that will injure His people.  He will make certain that they are destroyed for all of eternity.  He will banish Satan and all of his minions to the abyss and cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire. 

The Lord will soon complete our redemption in body, soul and spirit.  He will change these mortal bodies that are subject to disease and death into glorious resurrection forms.  We will live forever in His awesome presence to see our offspring for all generations to come.  He will make certain that we have all our needs met in abundance.  We will dwell in a literal paradise on this earth.   

Christ will rule and reign as a righteous King with a rod of iron to thwart all wickedness and evil.  Nothing that defiles either God or man will ever enter into His Kingdom.  He will make sure that only righteous and godly principles are enforced in the government of almighty God on this earth.  We will have safety and security, peace and prosperity, joy and freedom for all of eternity.
 

The Return Of Christ 

Hebrews 9:27-28 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

Jesus Christ originally came to this earth and laid down all of His deity, so that He could become one of us and redeem us from the curse of the law that specified death for our sins.  He was human in every way, yet sinless and perfect in all that He thought, said and did.  He became a living sacrifice for the sin debt of all of mankind, so that we could escape the punishment that we truly deserved. 

Our Lord and Savior redeemed each and every one of us with His suffering and death on the cross.  He died and was buried, then rose again, so that we could be made righteous and be adopted as the very sons and daughters of almighty God Himself.  We have become joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God, and we are seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of the Father.  

Christ will soon appear a second time without sin of any kind.  He will reign victorious over all wickedness and evil and complete our redemption in spirit, soul and body.  He will set up His everlasting Kingdom on this earth and establish the government of almighty God and His justice system.  There will be no more war, violence and conflict, no poverty and lack, anywhere in this entire world. 

The Kingdom of God will be idyllic – the perfect habitat for both God and mankind.  We will no longer be separated from our Creator.  He will actually come and take up residence with His people for all time.  He will meet all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him.  He will boast of us as His very own sons and daughters and fellowship intimately with us, as He has always desired to do.   

2Thessalonians 1:7-9 “And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 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;”  

Our Lord will soon return to us as a just Judge and as a righteous King.  He will separate the wheat from the chaff and destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming.  Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim, that “Jesus Christ is Lord over all of creation.”  He will consummate the redemption of His people in spirit, soul and body. 

He will judge all men and even angels to determine who will spend all of eternity with Him.  No evil will ever enter into His holy presence.  He will banish Satan and all his cohorts to the bottomless pit and cast all evildoers into the lake of fire.  Nothing will defile or harm His people ever again.  The Kingdom of God is reserved for Jesus Christ and all who are faithful. 

Christ will make certain that we are always healthy and happy.  He will change our mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that resemble His very own.  Disease and death will no longer rule over us.  We will live forever in a virtual paradise with the Lord Himself.  He will supply all our needs in abundance and grant us generous rewards for our service to Him. 

1Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then [cometh] the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.”  

The Lord will return to this earth and all the dead will be raised back to life once again.  He will judge all men, and even angels, to determine who will spend all of eternity with Him in His everlasting Kingdom.  He will banish the wicked and rebellious from His holy presence and gather all of the righteous to Himself, as He has promised us that He would.  If we have been loving and obedient we will receive eternal life. 

Our God will turn these mortal bodies into new, glorious resurrection forms that are impervious to disease, decay and death.  We will all be changed in the twinkling of an eye, and live forever in good health and vitality, to see our offspring for all generations to come.  There will be no more pain and suffering to endure.  Our heavenly Father will mercifully blot that from our memories and heal all of our wounds. 

Jesus Christ will banish Satan to the bottomless pit and destroy all evildoers in the lake of fire.  They will burn like chaff and be remembered no more.  Nothing that is defiling to either God or man will ever enter into the Kingdom of God.  It will be paradise on the earth for all those who are worthy to enter into it.  The Lord will share all the vast resources of the universe with us and supply all of our needs in abundance. 

The people of God will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom.  The Lord will actually come and take up residence with us and fellowship intimately with His children.  We will dwell with both men and angels in love, peace and unity forever more.  All creatures will worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth and give Him all the thanks, praise and honor that He deserves.   

Matthew 16:27-28 “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.”  

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will soon return to this earth in a flourish of power and glory that astounds all of creation.  He will destroy all those who have injured His people or have been wicked and rebellious in any way.  He will tolerate no compromise in any of His moral principles.  All men and angels will be judged to determine their righteousness. 

The Lord will separate the bad from the good and usher in His everlasting Kingdom.  Only righteousness and justice will prevail in His holy presence.  He will mete out eternal rewards and punishment according to our works.  Those who have been loving and obedient will fare well.  However, those who have been evil and wicked will perish in their wrongdoing. 

In the twinkling of an eye, our Lord and Savior will change these mortal bodies into new, resurrection forms that never perish from decay and disease.  We will live forever in health and vitality to see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come.  The righteous will dwell in peaceful habitations and have all needs met in abundance. 

Christ will share His very own honor and glory with those of us who have faithfully served Him and His people.  He will give us the heathen and the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance.  We will be appointed kings and priests of God, and judge both men and angels.  We will even rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world for all of eternity.
 

Everlasting Judgment 

Isaiah 13:9-11 “Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for [their] evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” 

All signs point to the return of Christ and the destruction of all that is ungodly in our midst.  The Day of the Lord will come at any time now and all sinners will be punished as the Lord has promised us.  No one who is proud and arrogant, stubborn and rebellious, hateful and impudent will survive His fierce wrath.  He will judge all creatures to determine their righteousness. 

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  He is holy and perfect and He cannot tolerate wickedness and evil in His presence.  He has vengeance in His heart to destroy all of His enemies, and He will settle all scores to vindicate His people.  Soon there will be no more defilement anywhere on the face of this earth to contaminate either God or mankind.   

The Lord will punish the world and all those in it, who are committed to sin and rebellion.  He will banish them from our midst forever more.  Those who are haughty and terrible will be abased, but the meek and humble will inherit the earth.  There will be no more greed and power struggles, no wars and conflict, nor violence and bloodshed or social injustice anywhere.   

Christ will obliterate all that digresses from His perfect, impeccable standards for His Kingdom.  He will establish godly principles as the norm for all our affairs.  Those who are righteous, loving and obedient will spend all of eternity in His awesome presence and thrive.  However, those who are committed to sin and evil will be cast out of the Kingdom of God forever. 

Romans 14:10-12 “But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, [As] I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”   

The sons and daughters of almighty God will one day judge both men and angels, but we have not yet earned that right.  Judgment of all creation is reserved for the Son of God, Jesus Christ.  He is all holy and perfect and the only one who is qualified to fairly evaluate any of us.  He will soon return to judge both the living and the dead.  He will assess all men and even angels.  He will judge His church and the nations. 

Jesus Christ alone will determine who has met God’s absolute, moral standards and who has missed the mark.  We will give a full account to Him and submit ourselves to His lordship.  We will all be judged by our works in the flesh to see if we have been righteous or rebellious.  Only those who have made Jesus Christ their personal Lord and Savior and walked in total love and obedience will be saved to eternal life. 

If we have been stubborn and rebellious, we can count on total condemnation and everlasting punishment for our sins.  The Lord is not obligated to provide for and protect those who contend with Him and violate His commandments.  No one who has done evil and failed to repent will ever enter into the Kingdom of God and His saints.  There is no other way to receive forgiveness except through the cross of Jesus Christ. 

Revelation 12:10 “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” 

Christ defeated all powers and principalities at Calvary when He successfully laid down His life for the sins of all mankind.  He made an open show of Satan and all his minions with His death and resurrection.  He took back all power in heaven and earth and gave it back to men.  All that remains is for the devil to be permanently banished from the Kingdom of almighty God. 

No evil will ever enter into Christ’s holy presence when He returns to set up His Kingdom on this earth.  He will banish it from our midst, so that it cannot adversely affect us.  There will be nothing that spoils the peace and tranquility that He has planned for His people.  The Kingdom of God will literally be heaven on this earth for all those who are deemed worthy to enter into it.

The Lord will cast Satan and all his demons into the bottomless pit, so that they can no longer torment His people or hold them in bondage to sin and evil of any kind.  They have falsely accused the children of God and tempted them day and night.  The devil will no longer oppress us in any way.  Jesus Christ will not permit any satanic contamination to come anywhere near us. 

We will have safety and security in Christ’s Kingdom.  Nothing will harm or defile us ever again.  Jesus will rule and reign with a rod of iron and protect us from all wickedness and evil.  He will be a generous benefactor to His people.  We will have unlimited peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His awesome presence and thrive for all of eternity. 
 

The Kingdom Comes With Power 

Mark 9:1 “And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.” 

We are a chosen generation.  We were created for such a time as this.  The Lord called us from the very foundation of the world to be instrumental in ushering in the everlasting Kingdom of God.  We are kings and priests of almighty God in training for reigning.  Many of us will not even taste death, but we will be changed in the twinkling of an eye when Jesus Christ returns to us.   

Christ is coming back for a spotless Bride who has made herself ready for Him.  If we are His faithful followers, He expects us to sanctify ourselves and present our bodies as living sacrifices for His service.  We have divine destinies to fulfill that will impact all of eternity.  We must rescue all of mankind from the sin and evil that threaten to destroy them and steal their blessings.   

We will confront all wickedness we see and overcome it with good.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and baptize countless numbers of souls in His name.  We will challenge all men, women and even children to establish godly principles in their dealings with one another.  We will bring peace, order and stability to all our affairs and take back the entire earth for our Lord. 

Much of what we do will be a stretch for us, but it is not by our own human efforts that this battle will be won.  Christ will imbue us with His divine power and authority.  His Holy Spirit will work in us and through us to accomplish mighty feats.  He will equip us to do all that He asks of us and send legions of ministering angels to assist us in bringing heaven to this earth realm.   

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 war going on in the heavenlies right now.  The Kingdom of God is being opposed by Satan and all of his minions.  The devil does not want heaven to be ushered into the earth realm, because he will then be banished for all of eternity.  He knows that his time is short and he is doing everything that he can to deter and detain God’s people from taking back their dominion in this world. 

Satan is attempting to bring trials and tribulation on us, as we serve the Lord and His people.  He oppresses our minds and emotions and steals our peace.  He creates strife and division among us, so that our strength is neutralized.  He wants men to doubt the promises of God and turn their backs on Him.  He uses every opportunity he can to weaken our resolve and distract us in our efforts. 

The enemy of our souls will not be successful for the long term.  We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself with divine destinies that must be fulfilled.  We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil in the days to come before Christ returns.  We will take the Kingdom of God by force, and deliver it to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for His everlasting rule and reign.   

Revelation 19:11-16 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.  His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.  And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.  And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”   

Christ is not coming back as a babe in the manger this time, nor will He be the meek and mild Lamb of God.  He is the “Faithful and True,” the King of kings and Lord of lords who will return in a fury with all of His angels and saints.  He has vengeance in His heart to eradicate all of His enemies and set matters straight in this world.  He will settle all scores and vindicate His people. 

The Lord will destroy all the ungodly in the wrath of His coming.  He has a zero tolerance for sin and evil.  He knows full well the damage that occurs when wickedness remains unchecked, and He will stop it in its tracks.  Nothing that is defiling will ever enter into the Kingdom of God to contaminate God or man.  Jesus will rule with a rod of iron and enforce principles of fairness and justice. 

The Kingdom of God will be a safe haven for Christ’s people.  The Lord will cast Satan and all his minions into the abyss so they can no longer oppress us.  All men will learn to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters, or be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire for all eternity.  There will be no more strife and division among us, no wars and violence, nor poverty and lack.   

Revelation 11:17-18 “Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”  

Christ in us is mighty and powerful for good.  We will make the way for heaven itself to be brought to this earth.  Through our efforts on His behalf, we will prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King.  We will make certain that all those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life are saved.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons.  We will even raise the dead back to life again. 

Nothing will be impossible to us.  All world governments will heed our advice and establish godly principles for governing their affairs.  We will eradicate poverty and lack and persuade men to share all the vast resources of the universe with one another.  There will be no more wars, violence or social injustice anywhere.  We will ensure that all men are treated with the fairness, dignity and respect that they deserve. 

We will speak to all of creation and restore it to its original beauty and balance.  All plants and animals will be in total harmony and subject to man once again.  The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable, and there will be no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction.  We will cleanse the planet of all its defilement and reverse the adverse effects of all forms of pollution that currently exist.  

The Kingdom of God will be ushered into this earth realm with power and glory unmatched in all of the universe.  Our Lord and Savior will return as the King of kings.  Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord.”  He will judge all men and angels to rid the world of its wickedness and evil.  He will cast wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire and banish Satan to the bottomless pit.
 

An Everlasting Kingdom 

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.” 

Jesus Christ is the rightful heir to the entire earth and the fair and just ruler of everyone in it.  He has accomplished great things for all of mankind, and the Kingdom of God will be His eternal inheritance.  He will soon return to this earth to cleanse it of all ungodliness once and for all.  Every race, tongue and nation will proclaim His glory and worship Him in Spirit and in truth. 

The Lord will provide for all the needs of His people.  He will bind up our wounds and blot out all pain and suffering from our memories.  Jesus Christ will change these mortal bodies into brand new, glorious, resurrection forms like His very own.  We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His awesome presence for all time. 

The Kingdom of God will literally be heaven on the earth forever more.  We will never be separated from our God ever again.  We will fellowship intimately with Him and He will make certain that we are always healthy, happy and content.  Christ will share His very own honor and glory with His people.  We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. 

The entire human race will look up to us, and give us all the respect that they would give to Christ Himself.  We will teach them how to dwell in love, peace and unity and share all the vast resources of the universe with one another.  There will be no more strife and division among us, no poverty and lack of any kind.  The Kingdom will be an idyllic environment for both God and man. 

Psalm 145:11-13 “They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. Thy kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion [endureth] throughout all generations.”   

Very soon now, the entire world will be astounded as heaven is ushered in to the earth realm.  We will not believe how beautiful and expansive the Kingdom of God really is until we see it for ourselves.  The name of the Lord will be magnified everywhere, and we will dwell with both angels and men in the very presence of our God.  It will be a literal paradise for all those who enter in to it. 

All of creation will be tranquil and at peace with both God and man.  Plants and animals will live in harmony and be subject to us, just as they were in the Garden of Eden.  The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable.  There will be no more natural disasters that cause death and destruction.  The ill effects of pollution will all be reversed and the earth will be cleansed.  

There will finally be total peace and harmony among us.  No wars, violence or conflict of any kind will be tolerated ever again.  We will dwell in love and unity as brothers and sisters or be forever banished to the eternal lake of fire.  Christ will rule and reign with a rod of iron to make certain that His people are always safe and secure.  He will be a righteous King and a generous benefactor. 

His Kingdom will have no end.  It will last forever and be our just inheritance.  The Lord will execute vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that was taken from us.  We will no longer be scorned or derided for our faith.  He will share honor and glory with those who have been faithful to serve Him.  We will be appointed kings and priests to rule and reign with Him forever. 

1Corinthians 15:24 “Then [cometh] the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.” 

Jesus Christ will defeat all powers and principalities once and for all.  He will banish Satan to the abyss so that He can no longer oppress His people. All wrongdoers will be cast into the unquenchable lake of fire, so they can no longer do damage to the earth or anyone in it.  The kingdoms of this world will be absorbed into the social and political infrastructure of the Kingdom of God. 

Once all of His enemies are put underneath His feet, Christ will present His perfect Kingdom to His heavenly Father.  The Lord will actually then come and take up residence with His people, as He always desired to do.  He will dwell on His holy mountain outside the New Jerusalem.  We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts. 

The Kingdom of God will be truly amazing.  God will never be separated from us ever again.  The Lord will meet all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him.  He will lavish us with blessings and protect us from all harm.  Our God will take an intimate interest in all the details of our personal lives, and our offspring will love and worship Him for all generations to come. 

Revelation 21:22-24 “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 the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.  

We will not have to make any effort to go to a church or temple to pay our respects to almighty God.  The Kingdom of God will be filled with His glorious presence for all of eternity.  We will interact with our Creator and His Son, Jesus Christ, on a regular basis.  We will teach all of mankind, and even angels, how to worship our God in Spirit and in truth as He desires. 

There will be no more sun and moon to shed their light, no night nor day in God’s holy presence.  His glory will be our eternal light.  We will bask in His abundant blessings and revel in all of His attentions.  He will provide all that we require – both temporal and spiritual.  All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful once again, as it originally was in the Garden of Eden.  

The entire human race will travel up to the New Jerusalem to celebrate all the Lord’s annual feast days and sabbaths.  Every race, tongue and nation will be represented.  It will be an awesome celebration to our God.  The kings of the earth will shower the Lord with honor and glory.  They will pay Him homage and give Him all the thanks and praise that He so richly deserves.
 

The Throne Of His Glory 

Matthew 25:31-34 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his] sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:” 

Jesus Christ is the King of kings and Lord of lords who will inherit the entire universe for all of His efforts on behalf of almighty God.  He is unmatched in all of creation, and everything that has breath will pay Him the homage and respect that He so deserves.  Our Lord and Savior will soon return to this earth to receive His just reward in the everlasting Kingdom of God.   

He will judge all of mankind, and even angels.  Neither the living, nor the dead, will escape His scrutiny.  He will assess His church and judge all the nations of the world to determine their righteousness.  Jesus will separate the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the chaff.  Only He can decide who is worthy of eternal blessings and who deserves never ending punishment. 

Those believers in Jesus Christ, who have been faithful to obey the Lord and walk in love, will be gathered into the Kingdom of God with all of its many blessings.  However, those who have been wicked and rebellious will be forever banished to the unquenchable lake of fire.  The Lord will tolerate no sin or evil to enter into His Kingdom to defile either God or man. 

Psalm 24:7-10 “Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who [is] this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he [is] the King of glory.”  

The Son of God is our Lord and Savior, a hero to His people.  Not only did He come to this earth and save us from all of our sins, but He also came so that we would have life in abundance to the overflow.  He defeated all powers and principalities on our behalf, so that we could be made free forever more.  Jesus gave His own life, so that ours could be redeemed in every area. 

He will rule and reign forever as our righteous King and generous provider and protector.  He will receive all the praise, honor and glory that He deserves.  We will flock to the throne of His glory and pay our respects.  Soon every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim, that “Jesus Christ is Lord over all of creation.”  Both men and angels will worship Him for all time. 

We will all come to know our Lord in a more intimate way, despite the fact that He is almighty God.  There will be no more separation between God and man ever again.  Those of us who have followed Him faithfully will rule and reign with Him over all of the nations of the world.  We will be appointed kings and priests to help our Lord and Savior enforce Kingdom principles. 

All of mankind will learn to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.  There will finally be tranquility in all of our lives.  No strife and division, nor war and conflict will ever be tolerated.  There will be no class distinctions or social injustice anywhere.  All men, women and children will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect in the everlasting Kingdom of God. 

Revelation 5:12-13 “Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, [be] unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” 

We should give God all the glory and thank Him for intervening in our lives.  Had our Creator not manifested Himself on this earth in the presence of Jesus Christ we would all still be lost in our sins.  We would not have hope and confidence for our future, as we do now.  Without His active involvement, we could not be happy and healthy for all time, as He promises that we will be.   

Every man, woman and child who is receptive to the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be saved to eternal life.  If they have been obedient and walked in love, they will be gathered to the Lord forever more.  They will be citizens of the Kingdom of God, His very own sons and daughters.  The Lord will boast of all of His children, however, His Son, Jesus Christ, will be held in the highest esteem. 

Jesus was the very Lamb of God who was sent to redeem all of mankind in body, soul and spirit.  He has been eminently successful and He deserves all the praise, honor and glory that the Lord intends for Him.  He will be our just Judge and righteous King forever more.  All the angels and saints will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and we will fellowship intimately with Him as He desires. 

Christ will be seated on His throne at the very right hand of God, our Father, for all of eternity.  Those of us who have faithfully served Him will rule and reign at His side.  We will be appointed kings and priests of God to help govern His people.  All men will be righteous and godly and dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.  The Kingdom of God will truly be heaven on this earth!
