Preface:

Romans 5:17 “For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.”

The Lord created mankind to dwell in paradise with Him for all of eternity. However, Adam’s sin separated us from the very beginning, and brought with it the penalty of death. The Lord saw that man tended only towards evil and He set up strict rules for our behavior. He gave us the Ten Commandments, but no human being could abide by them and remain fully innocent.

What the law could not do, the Son of God has accomplished once and for all. The Blood of Jesus Christ is our assurance that we are now righteous despite all of our mistakes. His suffering and death paid our sin debt in its entirety. All of our wicked deeds have been wiped clean and forgotten – past, present and future. Our heavenly Father no longer imputes sin guilt to us for any reason.

Jesus was crucified for the sins of all mankind. He was the perfect Lamb of God that was required to be our sacrificial substitute. We are totally righteous through no efforts of our own. It is only by faith that we have been redeemed and are now entitled to great and precious promises. If we believe the truth and walk in it, we will reign in this life and in the everlasting Kingdom to come.

The Lord has mercifully forgiven all of our sinfulness and granted us the gift of eternal life. He provides us with good health and longevity if we walk in His ways. He protects us from all evil and delivers us from our enemies. He gives us the ability to prosper, accumulate wealth and riches, and enjoy life abundantly. He even plans on bringing heaven itself to this earth for all of eternity.

Psalm 3:8 “Salvation [belongeth] unto the LORD: thy blessing [is] upon thy people.”

While we may not deserve it, and we certainly have not earned it, we have been blessed by almighty God beyond our imaginings. His total focus is on mankind and how to protect and provide for us. He has made salvation available to each and every one of us through the merits of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ. If we believe the truth and confess it with our mouths, we will be saved to eternal life with all its many benefits.

When we make Jesus the Lord of our lives, everything becomes brand new for us. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is totally transformed. We are now sin free and heirs to all the promises for righteousness. The Bible tells us that we become the adopted sons and daughters of God Himself, and we are seated with Christ in heavenly places. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us.

Believers can approach the throne of grace without guilt, shame or condemnation of any kind. The Lord will hear all of our prayers and meet all of our needs in abundance. He will never leave us or forsake us ever again. We have been restored to our right standing with Him for all time. Our heavenly Father has wonderful plans for our future. He will grant us an eternal inheritance that no man or devil can take away.

Isaiah 45:8 “Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.”

Very soon now, there will be new heavens and a new earth in which fairness and justice prevail. Wars and conflict, death and destruction, poverty and lack will all disappear. All men will be righteous and dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers. The Lord will supply all our needs in abundance, and make certain that we are blessed for all generations to come.

There will be nothing that defiles or harms us ever again. All wickedness and evil will be banished from our midst. The Lord will bind up all our wounds and restore everything that was stolen from us. He will take vengeance on our enemies and vindicate us before men and angels. He will change our mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever.

Our heavenly Father will boast of us to all of creation as His very own sons and daughters. We will dwell in peaceful habitations to enjoy our children and our children’s children. All flesh will worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, and celebrate all His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts. Man will never be separated from God ever again.

The Kingdom of God will literally be heaven on this earth for all those who are worthy to enter into it. It will be our eternal inheritance for righteousness and obedience. The glory of the Lord will light up His Kingdom, and we will thrive in His awesome presence. We will experience peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom.

 

 

Introduction:

Jeremiah 33:8 “And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me.”

All of mankind requires redemption, so that we can be restored to right standing with our God and receive all of His many, wonderful promises to us. The penalty for sin is death, and we have all inherited the iniquity of our fathers. The Lord knew this and sent His only beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth to save us from our sins. Jesus was born one of us, yet He was perfect and flawless in all of His ways.

He took on all of our sin guilt, as if it were His very own, and then paid its price with His suffering and death on the cross. He, who knew no sin, actually became sin for us and bore its curse, so that we could be blessed in abundance. We have received the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits through no merits of our own. The shed Blood of Jesus Christ sets us free and restores us to right standing.

If we believe in our Lord and Savior and all that He accomplished on our behalf, we become the adopted sons and daughters of almighty God and joint-heirs with Jesus to all of the promises for righteousness. We will share in His just rewards, and no good thing, spiritual or temporal, will ever be denied us. We can approach the throne of grace with assurance that we will have every prayer heard and answered.

Romans 5:15 “But not as the offence, so also [is] the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, [which is] by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.”

Through one man’s sin, all were made guilty and subject to the penalty of death. We were doomed to perdition until the Lord devised a perfect plan for our reconciliation to Him. He sent His beloved Son to this earth realm to redeem all of mankind from its generational iniquity and the transgression of His law. Jesus suffered, died and was buried to set us free.

The entire human race now has grace, or unmerited favor, with almighty God due to the perfect obedience of His Son, Jesus Christ. He served as our sacrificial substitute and all those who believe in His name have become heirs of salvation. We have received the gift of eternal life and all its many blessings. We will reign now in this life and in the Kingdom to come.

All things will be possible to us in the days that lie ahead before Christ returns to set up His Kingdom. We have divine destinies that we must embrace so that heaven itself can be brought to this earth. We will share our faith and make the Gospel of Jesus Christ available to every race, tongue and nation of this world. No righteous man, woman or child will be left behind.

We will baptize countless numbers of souls in the end-time harvest. The name of Jesus Christ will be glorified throughout the entire world. We will resume His ministry where He left off and heal the sick of all their afflictions. We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil, and even raise the dead back to life once again, as Jesus Himself did.

Ezekiel 28:25 “Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob. And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I [am] the LORD their God.”

We can have genuine hope and confidence for our future. The Lord will provide all our needs and protect us from all harm. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been stolen from us. He will change these mortal bodies that are subject to disease, decay and death into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in good health and vitality.

There will be new heavens and a new earth very soon now. The Lord promises that His people will dwell with Him in paradise for all of eternity. He will wipe away every tear and heal all of our wounds. There is no good thing that He will ever deny us. We will share in all the resources that this universe has to offer and enjoy endless peace and unlimited prosperity.

All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful, as it once was in the Garden of Eden. The climate will be temperate and predictable and there will be no more natural disasters. All forms of environmental pollution will be reversed, and there will be total harmony in the plant and animal kingdoms. There will be no more predatory spirit, no death and destruction ever again.

Hebrews 8:10-11 “For this [is] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.”

Jesus Christ will be our Judge and our King, and rule with a rod of iron to enforce Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality in the government of almighty God on this earth. There will be nothing that harms or defiles us any longer. Everyone will be righteous or be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire. Satan and all his cohorts will be cast into the abyss.

All men will dwell in love, peace and unity with one another. The Lord will actually come and take up residence on the earth. He will be our God and we will be a people called by His holy name. He will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters and supply all our needs in abundance. We will all know the Lord; His laws will be written in our minds and in our hearts.

We will dwell in peaceful habitations, grow crops for our food, and see our offspring for all the many generations to come. All flesh will 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, and give the Lord all the praise, gratitude and honor that He so richly deserves.

The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems. No man or angel will be able to steal it away from us. It will be our eternal inheritance for righteousness and obedience. The Lord will boast of us to all creation, and we will never be separated from Him ever again. We will dwell in His awesome presence and bask in His glory.

 

 

Chapter 1 – Heirs Of Salvation

Romans 13:11 “And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.”

Man was created in the very image and likeness of almighty God to enjoy an intimate relationship with Him for all eternity. It has always been the Lord’s greatest desire to provide for us and protect us from all harm. The first man and woman took all of His benevolence for granted and defied God. Adam and Eve sealed our fate with their disobedience in the Garden of Eden.

We have all inherited sin guilt and generational iniquity that separates us from our God. Every one of us requires redemption in order to be restored to our right standing with our Creator. If we refuse to repent of our sins and turn our backs on Him, we will go to perdition as we deserve. However, we would be very foolish to ignore all the Lord’s advances and incur His wrath.

Salvation has been made available to every man, woman and child on this earth. The Lord sent His only beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to save all of mankind from their sin guilt. There is no reason why any of us should perish. Jesus served as our sacrificial substitute once and for all. He actually became sin for our benefit, and then suffered its penalty of death in His own flesh.

Christ died to redeem us from the curse of the law, so that we could be blessed in abundance. He bore all of our infirmities and carried all of our diseases, so that we could be healed and whole. He became poor and disenfranchised, so that we could be made rich. He made an open show of Satan and all of his cohorts, so that we could have our dominion over the earth returned to us.

Psalm 79:8-9 “O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low. Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake.”

The Lord knew full well that mankind could never recoup its losses and be restored to right standing with Him without divine intervention. Jesus was the perfect Lamb of God that was slain from the very foundation of the world just for us. He, who was perfect and sinless in all His ways, bore our sins on the cross and then died to set us free from the curse of the law which specified death in return for our iniquity.

He came to this earth and relinquished all of His deity to be born a mere man, so that He could become one of us. He preached the good news of the Kingdom of God and gave men hope and confidence for their future. He healed all of our diseases, cast out demons and even raised the dead back to life again. He was willing and obedient to do everything that our heavenly Father required of Him to redeem us of all our sins.

Through Jesus’ suffering and death, we have been set free to receive the gift of eternal life with all its many benefits. If we believe in Him and all that He accomplished on our behalf, we become the righteousness of almighty God by faith. He no longer imputes any of our sin guilt to us. We have been adopted as His very own sons and daughters, and we are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.

We are now joint-heirs with Jesus Christ to all of the promises of God for righteousness. We can approach the throne of grace without shame, guilt or condemnation and know that all of our needs will be met in abundance. The Lord will withhold no good thing – spiritual or temporal – from us. When He looks at us, He sees Jesus in all His glorious perfection, and His heart’s desire is to bless us and protect us from all evil.

2Peter 1:4 “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.”

We now have peace with God and have become heirs to great and precious promises. The Lord will strengthen us in the power of His might, so that we can embrace our divine destinies as His very own sons and daughters. We will change the fate of all mankind in the days to come. We will resume Christ’s ministry on this earth and operate in His power and authority in everything that we do. The Lord will be able to work through us to demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion.

The Gospel of the Kingdom of God will be preached to every race, tongue and nation in this world. We will share our faith with every man, woman and child who is receptive and baptize them in Jesus’ name. We will 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 once again, just as Jesus did when He walked on the earth.

Nothing will be impossible to us. We will operate in the power of the Holy Spirit of God and be successful in all that we do. We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that stand in our way. We will bring peace and prosperity back to this earth and urge all of mankind to repent of their sins before Christ returns to receive His eternal Kingdom. Every man will be righteous or be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire for all eternity.

All of creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons and daughters of almighty God, so that we can restore order and stability to the natural world. We will make certain that all plants and animals are in total harmony and subject to man once again as they were in the Garden of Eden. We will regulate the climate so that it is temperate and predictable, and there are no more natural disasters ever again.

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.”

We have received many blessings and privileges as the sons and daughters of almighty God. With these come corresponding responsibilities. We have been given a sacred charge. We must partner with the Lord to rescue all those who are still lost in sin and darkness before it is too late. We will change the fate of all mankind if we are willing and obedient to serve the Lord as He desires.

In the critical days to come, we will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and conviction and save many souls in the end-time harvest. We will persuade them to repent of all their sins and accept the truth that sets them free to eternal life. We will make salvation available to all those who are receptive. No righteous man, woman or child will be left behind when Christ returns.

He will destroy all evil in the wrath of His coming and judge all of mankind, and even angels. The righteous will be blessed for all of eternity in the Kingdom of God on this earth. The Lord will share His very own honor and glory with those of us who have been faithful to serve Him. He will appoint us as kings and priests, so we can rule and reign with Him over all the nations.

The Kingdom of God will be paradise on this earth for both man and God. We will dwell in love, peace and unity with one another. There will be no more death and destruction, no poverty and lack, no wickedness and evil. The Lord will actually come and take up residence with us and provide all of our needs in abundance. We will never be separated from our God ever again.

Lost In Our Sins

Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

The Lord is holy and perfect, yet He hates sin. He created man in His very image and likeness to dwell in intimacy with Him for all of eternity. However, Adam and Eve ruined His plans and rebelled against His generosity when they followed Satan in the Garden of Eden. Sin separates us from our God and leaves us helpless and alone, lost in darkness and deception, until we are finally overcome by wickedness and evil.

The human condition is quite hopeless without almighty God’s intervention. All of us have sinned and inherited generational iniquity from our forefathers. We have lost our right standing with our Creator and we are doomed to perdition. Instead of receiving blessings that were intended for us from the foundation of the world, we have curses of fear, poverty and disease. The ultimate penalty for our transgressions is death.

The Lord has no alternative but to permit us to be destroyed if we purposely remain in a sinful state. He cannot abide evil in His holy presence. Nor is He obliged to bless and protect us if we are estranged from Him. Without God in our lives, we are relegated to eternal condemnation. There is no way that we can atone for wrongdoing in our own strength. We must rely on almighty God to exonerate us of our sin guilt.

Jeremiah 3:25 “We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the LORD our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God.”

We may think that we are in control of our fate, but the Lord knows the end from the beginning. Although we suppose we are in right standing with our Creator, He is acutely aware of the fact that the entire human race is in desperate need of redemption. Without His infinite love, mercy and compassion, we are doomed to perdition for all of eternity. Sin kills, and the wages of sin are death.

Human nature is flawed and imperfect at best. It is impossible to please God in our present state. He is holy and perfect, and any being that falls short of His glory is doomed to total destruction. He cannot and will not abide any evil in His presence. He will ultimately cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire unless they repent of their wicked ways and earnestly seek His face.

We must cry out to our Creator for forgiveness and adopt His ways as our own or we will be forever banished. If we are contrite and humble, He will make it possible for us to be redeemed from all our sins. There is no legitimate excuse for any of us to be condemned to everlasting punishment, when almighty God has made total provision for all of mankind to be saved from its dire fate.

Micah 7:9 “I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, [and] I shall behold his righteousness.”

We have all inherited the sin guilt of our forefathers, Adam and Eve, through no fault of our own. We have borne their death penalty for generations, and many have died in their sins without remorse and been sentenced to eternal punishment as a result. It is not the Lord’s desire that anyone perish for lack of knowledge in the truth. He has mercifully provided all of us with a way out.

The Lord is deeply grieved when any man is separated from Him for any reason. He longs for His people that were created in His image and likeness and He delights in our companionship. He developed a perfect plan for our reconciliation to Him for all time. He sent His very own Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth to redeem the entire human race from its transgression and generational iniquity.

If we repent of all our wickedness and evil and accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, we are saved to eternal life with all of its many promises. We can appropriate His very own righteousness by faith and become the adopted sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. Salvation is available to every man, woman and child who believes the truth and is baptized in Jesus’ holy name.

The Only Answer

2Thessalonians 2:13 “But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:”

We were called from the very foundation of the world to dwell in perfect harmony with our Creator for all time. He longs for our intimacy and wants nothing more than a personal relationship with each and every one of us. The Lord loves us with a deep, abiding love that transcends our human understanding. He longs to provide for us and protect us from all harm, as a father would nurture his children.

However, sin estranges us from God and interrupts His perfect plans for our lives. As long as we are lost in our transgressions, the Lord’s hands are tied. He must leave us to our own devices if we choose iniquity over righteousness. There is only one way for mankind to be redeemed from all of its sinfulness. We must repent of all evil and accept the truth. Jesus Christ was God made man for our benefit.

He came to this earth to save us from the penalty of death for our sins. He taught us God’s ways and made salvation available to everyone who chooses to believe in Him and appropriate His righteousness by faith. If we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we are totally cleansed from the inside out. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is transformed until it becomes godly.

We actually become new creatures in Christ. We are born again in our spirits. Our old sin nature is wiped away and totally forgotten. The Lord no longer looks on our sin guilt or imputes it to us ever again. We are set free by the Blood of the Lamb. We can now approach the throne of grace with hope and confidence that all our prayers are heard and every need will be met in abundance to the overflow.

Galatians 3:27-29 “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye [be] Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

We each have an all-important, life or death decision to make before it is too late. If we refuse such a great salvation, we are doomed to destruction for all of eternity. The Lord has no recourse but to permit us to die in our sins, if that is what we choose. Although it pains Him when any of us are lost, He will not relent in this area. Sin is sin and it requires payback. The penalty for our iniquity is natural and spiritual death.

Being desperate is often a good thing because it causes us to make drastic changes in our lives. If we cry out to God for salvation from all of our sins, He will never let us down. He longs for our fellowship and is more than ready to forgive us if we are sincere. All that we must do is be repentant and believe the truth. Our heavenly Father sent Jesus to this earth to save all of mankind from their sins once and for all time.

If we accept Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we become righteous in Him. He suffered and died so that we do not have to endure the same fate. He bore all of our sins and carried all of our infirmities, so that we could be made whole. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us if we have faith in His Son and appropriate all the promises for righteousness that He bought for us with His Blood.

Jesus died so that we could have eternal life with all of its many benefits. We are now restored to our right standing with God and joint-heirs to His everlasting Kingdom on this earth. We are His very own sons and daughters, seated with Christ in heavenly places. We can approach the throne of grace with hope and confidence that all of our needs will be met in abundance, as almighty God has assured us that they will.

2Corinthians 6:2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now [is] the accepted time; behold, now [is] the day of salvation.)”

When the Lord looks at us, He sees the Blood of Jesus that was offered up in atonement for all of our sins. He no longer imputes our sin guilt to us for any reason. We have grace, or unmerited favor, with Him and He longs to bless us with all spiritual and temporal advantages. We are the sons and daughters of almighty God and we have access to all the vast resources of the universe.

Our redemption unlocks all the blessings of God on our lives. There is no good thing that our heavenly Father will ever withhold from us. We can now approach the throne of His grace without shame, guilt or condemnation, and be assured that all of our prayers for ourselves, and for others, will be heard. The Lord is ever generous with His people and He satisfies all of our needs.

If we embrace the truth and are redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, we will reign in this life, and in the Kingdom to come, for all of eternity. Sin will no longer have a hold on us. We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil. We will step into our divine destinies, and present our bodies as living sacrifices in service to the Lord and to His people, so that others can be set free.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with power and authority. We will baptize countless numbers in Jesus’ mighty name and heal the sick of all their afflictions. Devils will flee from us, as we loosen their bondage on all those we meet. We will cast them out and even raise the dead back to life again through the operation of the Holy Spirit of almighty God Himself.

The Son Sets Us Free

1Thessalonians 5: 9 “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,”

Our Creator never intended that man go to perdition, despite the fact that he rebelled and transgressed His command in the Garden of Eden. Sin brought guilt on us all, but it does not have to be our permanent undoing. It is the Lord’s heart-felt desire that all of mankind be saved and dwell in intimacy with Him, as He planned and purposed from the very foundation of the world.

Almighty God has made redemption available to the entire human race, not just a select few of us. Every man, woman and child who believes the truth will be set free to eternal life through Jesus Christ. The Lord is no respecter of persons. Anyone who accepts His Son as personal Lord and Savior will be saved. He suffered and died for the benefit of each and every one of us for all time.

All that we must do is repent of our sins and appropriate the righteousness of Jesus Himself by faith. He paid our sin debt in full for all transgressions – past, present and future. We now have grace with God and become joint-heirs to all of His promises. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. We will live forever and enjoy life in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

Our heavenly Father will bless us now and for all of eternity. He has made extravagant claims for those who believe the Gospel and walk in His ways. He will never leave us or forsake us. He has only our best interest at heart. He will give us good health and long life; deliver us from evil; and protect us from all of our enemies. He longs to grant us peace and prosper us in all that we do.

Romans 10:8-10 “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

The Gospel is the living Word of almighty God Himself. It is powerful to save us from our sins and unleash blessings instead of curses in our lives. If we believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God, who was sent to this earth to buy back our right standing with our heavenly Father and confess Him as our Lord, we will be redeemed to eternal life with all of its many benefits.

Our God will no longer impute our sin guilt to us. Christ paid the price for our sinfulness with His very own flesh. He suffered, died and was buried to satisfy the penalty of death that was imposed on the entire human race. He was our sacrificial substitute and the chastisement for our peace. We now have a covenant relationship with the Lord that extends to everyone who believes.

Every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation has an equal opportunity to be saved. It is not the Lord’s desire that anyone perish. If we have faith in Jesus and all that He accomplished on our behalf, we will soon be gathered to Him for all eternity in the Kingdom of God on this earth. No one who is redeemed by Christ will ever be denied any of God’s blessings.

Righteousness sets us free to be all that the Lord has in store for us. We are heirs of salvation now and entitled to receive all the many promises of God. He yearns to shower us with all spiritual and temporal advantages, and empower us in ways that we can only imagine. If we fully surrender our personal lives to Jesus Christ, we will reign in this life and in the Kingdom to come.

Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

There is no way to be restored to right standing with our God except through the cross of Jesus Christ. If we believe in Him and repent of all our sins, we are set free in the truth. Jesus was God made man for our express benefit. He bore the curse of the law, so that we could have life in abundance to the overflow. The Lord will bless us with all spiritual and temporal advantages.

Our future is secure; we now have hope and confidence. We are the sons and daughters of almighty God and He will share all the vast resources of the universe with us. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God, and we have divine power and authority to walk just as He did on this earth.

We will change the fate of all mankind by our godly example, and set others free from their bondage to sin and evil. We will share our faith with genuine conviction and see countless numbers of souls gathered in the end-time harvest. We will heal the sick and cast out demons, just as Jesus did. We will even raise the dead back to life, if we operate in the power of His Holy Spirit.

The Kingdom of almighty God will be advanced all over this earth even before Christ returns to us. We will see peace and prosperity abound in our lives. All of creation will be restored to its original beauty and balance, as we take back the dominion that Satan once stole from us. Heaven will be brought to this earth realm as promised, and our Savior will be glorified in His people.

From Guilt To Righteousness

Romans 3:24-26 “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, [I say], at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.”

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, came to this earth to redeem all of mankind from their generational iniquity and transgression of God’s law. He, who knew no sin, actually became sin for us and then suffered the consequences of it in His own flesh. Jesus was the perfect Lamb of God that was offered up for the atonement of all our sins. He served as our high priest and mediator with the Father.

All of mankind has cause for rejoicing now. We are no longer subject to the penalty of death for all of our sinfulness. We have a bright and promising future ahead of us. We are washed through the Blood of Jesus Christ and permanently restored to our right standing with almighty God. If we believe the truth and accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, we will inherit eternal life with all its blessings.

What the law could not do, Jesus Christ accomplished with His one perfect act of obedience at the cross. He willingly served as the sacrificial substitute for the entire human race. Every man, woman and child benefits from His suffering and death in remission for our sins. The Lord no longer imputes sin guilt to any of us. We are now set free, by faith, to enjoy all the promises of God for righteousness.

The Lord will bless us with all spiritual and temporal advantages. He will make all the vast resources of the universe available to His people. He will provide all our needs in abundance and protect us from all evil. Very soon now, He will gather us to Himself for all of eternity in a literal paradise on this earth. The Kingdom of God is the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all our problems.

Titus 3:5-7 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

We are desperate for divine intervention in our lives. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. There is no way that any of us can be righteous through any works in our flesh. Sin is sin, and it requires payback. The penalty for our sins is death, plain and simple. In His infinite love, mercy and compassion, the Lord provided us with a means of escape.

He sent His very own Son to this earth to buy back our innocence. Jesus was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit of God Himself and born of a woman. He was human in all respects, yet He was godly in all of His ways. He, who knew no sin, actually became sin for us and then suffered its penalty in total satisfaction of the terms of the law which specified death.

Were it not for Jesus Christ and His perfect obedience on our behalf, we would all be doomed to never ending punishment for our transgressions. As it is, we are saved by grace, which is the free gift of God. We are no longer at enmity with our Creator, nor subject to His wrath. We now have a permanent covenant of peace with Him that includes many rights and privileges.

We become the actual sons and daughters of God Himself through our faith in Jesus Christ. We also have access to the baptism in the Holy Spirit of God. If we pray and ask the Lord to indwell us He will permeate our very being with His awesome presence. Our lives will change as never before. We will rule and reign in this life and in the everlasting Kingdom of God to come.

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 are brand new creatures in Christ. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is totally transformed until it becomes godly. We are sons and daughters of almighty God, joint-heirs with Jesus Himself. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us. We will soon enter into the Kingdom of God on this earth and be blessed in abundance for all of eternity.

With our privileges comes a corresponding obligation. We should present our bodies as living sacrifices to serve the Lord and His people in these last days. There are many human beings who are still lost in sin and darkness, and we must help rescue them from their plight before it is too late. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and conviction and gather in a huge harvest of souls.

Salvation will be made available to every man, woman and child who is receptive. If they repent of all their sins and accept Christ as their Lord and Savior, they will be redeemed to eternal life. We will cast out demons that hold them in bondage to sin and evil and see their lives radically changed. No righteous individual will be denied entry into the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God.

Believers will accomplish great feats in the days to come. We will work miracles, signs and wonders to attest to our faith. We will heal the sick and cast out demons in Jesus’ mighty name. We will even raise the dead back to life again, if we walk in all of the power and authority that has been given us. We will glorify our God in all we think, say and do and change the fate of all mankind.

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.”

It is difficult to get a clear grasp of all that we really mean to almighty God. That requires divine revelation and a heightened understanding on our part. The Lord knew us from the very foundation of the world. It was part of His eternal plan and purpose for each of us to be born at such a time as this. We may have been conceived in the flesh, but we are birthed of His express will.

If we believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior, we are born again by the power of the Holy Spirit. Flesh and blood no longer reign over us. We are newly created spirit beings having a human experience that is only temporary. Our citizenship is in heaven above and we are only here on this planet to serve the one, true, living God.

We are sons and daughters of the Most High, with rights and privileges that we have not even begun to explore. We are blessed above every other living creature, and the Lord has special plans for our lives. We should sanctify ourselves of all our carnality and selfish soul ambitions, so that He can imbue us with His divine power and authority to represent Him to all of mankind.

There are many souls who are still lost in darkness, and we will partner with the Lord to rescue them from their bondage to sin and evil. We will share our faith so that they can be set free to eternal life, just as we have been. We will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God and destroy all demonic strongholds that interfere with our work or impede our progress in any way.

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:”

We are born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit of almighty God Himself. All things are now possible to us. We can walk just as Jesus Christ did on this earth, and resume His ministry where He left off. He has promised us that we will do the exact works that He did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with our heavenly Father. We will accomplish mighty things in His name.

The Gospel will be preached throughout the world to every race, tongue and nation. The full end-time harvest of souls will be gathered into the Kingdom of God. We will baptize every man, woman and child who is receptive. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil of any kind. We will even raise the dead back to life.

All of creation is waiting for the sons and daughters of God to be revealed, so that we can restore it to its original beauty and balance. We will speak to all the plants and animals and command total harmony. The climate will be regulated, so that it is always temperate and predictable. There will be no more pollution or natural catastrophes that cause death and destruction in their wake ever again.

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;”

All of mankind will soon realize that we are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. His light will shine forth from us in all that we say and do, and His favor will be obvious in our lives. We will be godly role models for others and share our faith with power and conviction. We will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God and prepare the hearts of all men for the return of Jesus Christ.

There will finally be peace and prosperity for all of God’s people. We will confront all world governments and make certain that they establish godly principles in their dealings with one another. There will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere. Poverty and lack will be abolished, as the wealth of the wicked is transferred to the righteous for fair and equitable distribution to all those who are in need.

We will eradicate all forms of social injustice and destroy all artificial barriers that keep us separated from one another. There will be no more strife and division among us if we employ godly standards in all of our interpersonal relationships. We will learn to dwell in love and unity as brothers and sisters. The Kingdom of God will be advanced on this earth and impact every race, tongue and nation of the world.

All of creation will be set free to the glorious liberty we enjoy. There will be no more chaos and confusion, death and decay in nature. All plants and animals will be in harmony and subject to us once again, 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 harm, nor any type of pollution anywhere on the planet.

Irrevocable Promises

1Peter 1:3-5 “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

Our faith changes everything in our lives. We are no longer lost in sin, nor subject to its penalty of death. Christ died so that we could be set free. We have a wonderful birthright as the sons and daughters of God, that no man or devil can ever steal from us. We have inherited eternal life and all of its many benefits. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from His people.

We have provision and protection available to us, sometimes even before we ask. The Lord supplies all of our needs in abundance according to His riches in glory. He hears every prayer and He always responds to our requests. We have grace, or unmerited favor, with Him at all times. Almighty God sees us as He does Jesus – covered by the precious Blood and entitled to all of His promises.

Our ultimate promise is that of new heavens and a new earth. The Lord will soon gather us to Himself for all of eternity. He wants to provide all of our needs and protect us from all harm. His deepest desire is to fellowship intimately with us in the everlasting Kingdom of God on this earth. He plans to actually come and take up residence with a people who are sanctified in His holy name.

The Kingdom of God is our eternal inheritance for righteousness. The Lord will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. We will never be separated from Him ever again. We will share in Christ’s honor and glory and be appointed kings and priests of God. Blessings of peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom all belong to us.

Hebrews 9:14-15 “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? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions [that were] under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.”

We are Jesus Christ’s direct heirs for all that He accomplished on our behalf. He suffered and died so that we might have life in abundance to the overflow. We are made righteous by His Blood and adopted sons and daughters of God Himself. When our heavenly Father looks at us, He sees Jesus in all His perfection and He will never withhold any good thing from us – spiritual or temporal.

While our identity in Christ should be considered separate and apart from our works, we still have an obligation to present our bodies as living sacrifices to God in return for all that He has done for us. He has need of our help in rescuing others who are still lost in sin, darkness and deception. Much remains to be done here before Jesus can return to us to receive His everlasting Kingdom.

Believers have divine destinies that we should embrace in service to the Lord and to His peopleis peopleHis. We will take back this entire earth from its bondage to sin and evil and release it from defilement and corruption, so that heaven can be brought here as the Lord Himself plans and purposes. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and baptize countless numbers of souls in the end-time harvest.

We will resume Christ’s ministry where He left off and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King. We will heal the sick of all their diseases and cast out demons that oppress others. 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 once again, so that they can join us for all of eternity in the Kingdom of God.

Colossians 3:23-24 “And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.”

Everything that we do will be by the power of the Holy Spirit of God. We will overcome all evil with good and establish the government of almighty God and His justice system on this earth. We will confront all wickedness and evil that we see and abolish wars, violence and conflict from our affairs. There will be no more prejudice or social injustice; all men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.

All artificial social barriers that keep us separated from one another will be eliminated. Every race, tongue and nation will be represented in the Kingdom of God. We will all learn to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We will eradicate all poverty and lack, and share in all of the vast resources of the universe. All of our needs will be met in abundance, according to the Lord’s riches in glory.

We will bring order and stability to the natural world and restore it to its original beauty and balance. All plants and animals will soon be in perfect harmony and subject to man, as they once were in the Garden of Eden. We will regulate the climate, so that there are no more natural disasters that ever cause death and destruction. We also will reverse the adverse effects of all forms of environmental pollution.

The entire planet will be refreshed and renewed, so that heaven can be brought here for all of eternity. The Kingdom of God will be a literal paradise on this earth. The Lord will actually come and dwell with His people, as He has always desired. He will boast of us to all creation as His beloved children, and nurture us as only a father can do. He will lavish abundant blessings on us, so that we are fully content.

Ephesians 1:10-11 “That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; [even] in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:”

The Kingdom of God is being ushered in by God’s people right now, and it will soon advance until it covers the entire world. It is our eternal legacy for righteousness through faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all our problems. The Lord will actually come and dwell with His people on this earth and supply all our needs in abundance.

Almighty God will gather us to Himself, as He has always desired to do. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and vindicate us before both men and angels. He will change our mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that live forever, free of disease and decay. The Lord will mercifully restore all that has been taken from us over the years, and blot out all memories of pain and suffering.

There will be new heavens and a new earth filled with righteousness, peace and joy for all of God’s people. We will dwell in beautiful homes and grow crops for our food. We will see our offspring for all the many generations to come. All men will know the Lord; His laws will be written in their minds and hearts. We will all relate to one another as brothers and sisters, and worship our God in Spirit and in truth.

Those of us who have served the Lord and His people in establishing His Kingdom can expect generous rewards for our faithfulness. We will share in Christ’s honor and glory. We will receive the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will be appointed kings and priests of God, and even judge both men and angels. We will rule and reign with Jesus over all the nations of the world.

 

 

Chapter 2 – The Covenant Promises Of God

Ephesians 1:3-6 “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ: 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 man to be His intimate companion and to dwell in paradise on this earth. However, sin and death entered into the equation and interrupted His perfect plans for us. Adam’s rebellion in the Garden of Eden was our undoing, and the Lord had to develop a solution that would reconcile us back to Him. He sent His only beloved Son to redeem us of all of our transgressions.

Jesus Christ came to this earth to set us free from the penalty of death for our sinfulness and to provide us with life in abundance to the overflow. If we believe in Him and confess Him as our Lord and Savior, we will inherit eternal life with all of its many benefits. He will no longer impute our sin guilt to us. We have been washed clean in His Blood for all of our sins – past, present and future.

We are restored to right standing with almighty God through no effort on our own, and we are legal heirs to all of the promises of God. He views us as His very own sons and daughters, and His greatest desire is to provide for us and protect us from harm. We can approach the throne of His grace with any need and know that it will be met. He will provide us with all temporal and spiritual blessings.

The Lord will meet all of our needs according to His riches in glory. He will never leave us or forsake us. He will deliver us from evil and defend us from all of our enemies. He will always give us good health and longevity if we walk in His ways, and provide us with peace, joy and gladness in the midst of our troubles. There is no good thing that almighty God will ever withhold from His people.

2Corinthians 7:1 “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

The forgiveness of sins and salvation to eternal life are available to all those who are receptive. However, the Lord will never force any of us to believe the truth and receive Christ as our personal Lord and Savior. That is strictly voluntary, but it has many advantages for us. If we are truly repentant, and confess Jesus as Lord, we are immediately restored to our right standing with God and become heirs to all of His promises.

Our God gives us unmerited favor, or grace, in all that we think, say and do. He changes us from the inside out, so that we actually begin to resemble Jesus Christ Himself. If we ask Him, He sends His very own Holy Spirit to indwell us and strengthen us in our spirit man. The Holy Spirit leads and guides us into all truth; protects us from all evil; and provides us with a means of escape from our temptation to sin.

Believers become heirs to eternal life with all of its many blessings. The Lord will soon gather us to Himself in a literal paradise on this earth. The Kingdom of God will be righteousness, peace and joy for all those who are worthy to enter into it. Our God will meet all of our needs in abundance and boast of us to all of creation as His sons and daughters. We will never be separated from our heavenly Father ever again.

The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and banish Satan to the bottomless pit, so that he can no longer harm us. He will restore all that has been taken from us, and bind up all of our wounds. He will change these mortal bodies that are susceptible to disease, decay and death into new, glorious, resurrection forms. He will bless our offspring with spiritual and temporal blessings for all generations to come.

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.”

When we accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, all our sins are forgiven, and we become brand new creatures in Him. Our minds are gradually renewed in the truth and our behavior is totally transformed until it become godly. We take on the divine nature through our redemption, and we are now seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.

The Lord no longer imputes our sins to us for any reason. They are all covered by the precious Blood of Jesus Christ. We are called to glory and virtue, and the fate of all mankind depends on our efforts. The Lord will imbue us with all power and authority to serve as His goodwill ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. We will gather His people to Him for all of eternity.

Believers will walk in divine destinies and demonstrate the love, mercy and compassion that God has for all mankind. We will preach the Gospel with real fervor, and baptize countless numbers of souls in Jesus’ mighty name. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that interfere with our work, and usher heaven itself into the earth realm in the Kingdom of almighty God.

We will bring peace, order and stability to this world before Christ returns to us. Poverty and lack will be eradicated; we will make certain that all men’s needs are met in abundance. War, conflict and social injustice will be things of the past; everyone will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect. We will overcome all evil with good by the power of the Holy Spirit.

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.”

We are righteous only by faith, and we have grace, or unmerited favor, with our heavenly Father. We have become joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God. We will share in His honor and glory and spend all of eternity in His awesome presence. The Lord will protect us from all evil and lavish us with His many blessings, now, and in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

Our God promises us health and wellness, peace and prosperity, joy and freedom. He will keep us safe and secure, and deliver us from anything that could harm or defile us. The Lord will give us power over all our enemies and restore our dominion back to us. We will rise up as His fully mature sons and daughters, and take back the entire earth for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We will be given an anointing in the Holy Spirit, so we can partner with the Lord in rescuing those who are still lost in darkness and deception. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all who are receptive. We will baptize countless numbers of souls in His name and heal the sick of all their afflictions. We will cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life once again.

Nothing will be impossible to us as we resume Christ’s ministry where He left off. We will consummate the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. No righteous man, woman or child will be left behind when He finally comes to gather us to Himself for all of eternity. Every race, tongue and nation in this world will have an equal opportunity to be radically blessed.

A Covenant God

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:”

Under the terms of the Old Testament Law all things had to be purged by blood, before human beings could have a covenant relationship with our Creator God and be assured of His blessings. The high priest would sanctify himself; enter into the Temple’s Holy of Holies on behalf of the people; and offer a blood sacrifice to almighty God in atonement for all of their sins at least once a year.

It should be noted that the blood of sheep, bulls, calves and goats was formerly used to cover all of our sins. However, it was never sufficient to permanently redeem mankind in God’s eyes. It was necessary that a better sacrifice be made that would ensure our right standing with the Lord for all time. So it was that Jesus Christ, the perfect Lamb of God, came to this earth to cancel all of our sin debt.

The Son of God was divine in all respects, yet He humbled Himself to become one of us, so that He could become our sacrificial substitute. Jesus laid down His life and shed His own precious Blood, so that the entire human race could be set free from their sins, and inherit the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits. What the law could not do, Christ completed to perfection at the cross.

He, who knew no sin, became sin for us and then paid its penalty of death, so that we would not have to endure the same fate. Jesus atoned for the sins of all mankind – past, present and future. He entered into heaven itself and always intercedes for us with His heavenly Father. We now are restored to fellowship with our God, and we are partners in an everlasting covenant of peace with Him.

Deuteronomy 7:9 “Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he [is] God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;”

The Lord is infinitely merciful and compassionate to the human condition. He knows that we struggle to be righteous on our own, but He makes it clear that we can only be redeemed by our faith in His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, and all that He accomplished on our behalf. Jesus served as our sacrificial substitute, and through the shedding of His Blood we are now able to enter into a covenant relationship with our God.

We are no longer estranged from our Creator. The veil that separated us from Him has been rent in two and we can now enter into His awesome presence, as He has always desired. We are the actual sons and daughters of almighty God through our faith in Christ. When the Lord looks at us, He sees Jesus in all of His righteousness and He will bless us in abundance for all of eternity, just as He has promised to us.

Our God will imbue us with His very own divine power and authority, so that we can share our faith with the entire human race. We will preach the Gospel and baptize many souls to eternal life in Jesus’ holy name. Every man, woman and child will have an equal opportunity to repent and be saved from all their sins. We will demonstrate the deep, abiding love, mercy and compassion that the Lord has for His people.

Isaiah 49:8-11 “Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that [are] in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures [shall be] in all high places. They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them. And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.”

It is not the Lord’s will that anyone perish for lack of knowledge in the truth. Our God wants us to partner with Him to reach every man, woman and child in this world with the message of the Gospel. We will share our faith and see countless numbers of souls baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Salvation to eternal life will be available to all those who are receptive.

In addition, we will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons that hold others in bondage to their sin. We will even raise the dead back to life again, just as Jesus did when He walked among us. We will overcome all evil with good, and take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. We will urge all of mankind to obey God and to walk in His perfect ways.

All men will ultimately have the chance to know the Lord and worship Him in Spirit and in truth. We will dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity. The Lord will provide all of our needs and protect us from all harm. He will share all the vast resources of the universe with His people and actually come and take up residence with us here for all of eternity.

The Kingdom of God will be heaven on this earth, a literal paradise for both God and man to enjoy. There will be no more wickedness and evil. The Lord will banish it from our midst. He will cast Satan into the bottomless pit and all wrongdoers will perish in the unquenchable lake of fire. There will be nothing that defiles mankind or causes us pain and suffering ever again.

The Noahic Covenant

Genesis 6:5-8 “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”

The Lord has made covenants with His people ever since the creation itself. Man has not always been faithful to do his part, but almighty God has always kept His promises to us. We have disappointed our God many times, yet He has always been patient with us. It is not His desire that any human being perish. He seeks to reconcile Himself with us, despite our disobedience.

God created man for fellowship with Him for all of eternity. He wants to protect and provide for His people. It is man who violated that relationship and rebelled against our Creator. When Adam sinned against God in the Garden of Eden, the Lord had no recourse but to banish him from paradise. He brought a penalty of spiritual and physical death on the entire human race.

Instead of learning from our mistakes, we only did more evil in His sight until the Lord was compelled to respond and sovereignly move to cleanse the earth of all its defilement. Only one man found favor with God and He made provision for his escape. The Lord had Noah build an ark to house his family and many species of plants and animals, so that they could survive the deluge.

Genesis 6:17 “And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein [is] the breath of life, from under heaven; [and] every thing that [is] in the earth shall die. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.”

Although Noah was obedient to the Lord and constructed the ark, as he was told, it must have appeared to be very foolish to others. There were no signs of impending disaster that would alert men to the potential danger. Almighty God was reticent when it came to communicating with everyone except Noah. He took great care of this faithful man and protected him.

The Lord then proceeded to destroy the entire world and all of its inhabitants by flood waters. The Bible tells us that it rained on Noah and his ark for forty days and for forty nights. When the earth was cleansed, the Lord caused a wind to blow and the rain finally ended. However, it took several months for the waters to recede to the point that there was dry land again.

Our God was determined to sustain all life forms and He provided for Noah and the other survivors until they could till the soil once more. He intervened in the affairs of both man and beast and they were given the command to be fruitful and multiply, so that the earth could be replenished. All the current descendants of mankind can be traced back to Noah and his sons.

Because of one man’s trust and obedience in a world that was darkened by sin and evil and doomed to total destruction, we were all given a fresh start. The Lord determined never to destroy mankind off the face of the earth ever again. He made a new covenant with the human race that benefitted many generations, and it serves as the prototype for all the promises to come.

Genesis 9:11-13 “And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, This [is] the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that [is] with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.”

Almighty God could have simply started over and left human beings out of the equation, yet in His infinite mercy and compassion He decided to salvage a remnant of His original creation. He protected and provided for Noah and his family until the flood waters receded. The Lord made a new covenant with mankind and He determined to bless us, as He had always intended.

Our Creator vowed never to destroy the earth and its inhabitants by flood waters ever again. He set the rainbow in the clouds as a perpetual sign of His good will and He has kept His promise. We can trust that He will always abide by His word and sustain us, as He originally set out to do. We serve a great and benevolent God who seeks to always do good, and not evil, to His people.

All that remains is for mankind to keep the terms of the Noahic covenant with the Lord. We must trust in His provision and be perfectly obedient to do all that He asks of us. Almighty God knows the end from the beginning, and despite how things may appear, He always has our best interest at heart. When obstacles appear in our path, we should remember the example of faithful Noah.

The Abrahamic Covenant

Galatians 3:13 “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 also established a covenant with the patriarch, Abraham, that extends to each and every one of us to this day. He appeared to the man in his old age and promised him that he would be the father of many nations, even though his wife, Sarah, was barren. Abraham believed God and it was counted to him as righteousness. He never doubted that the Lord could do all that He promised.

If we believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and all that He accomplished for us, we are reckoned as descendants of faithful Abraham. We are entitled to all of his blessings for righteousness. We have become heirs to the entire world and no man will be able to stand against us. Peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security are only part of what we can expect with the Abrahamic covenant.

Our father, Abraham, was very rich in livestock, silver and gold. Everything that he touched prospered until he reached a point when he had to part ways with his kinsman, Lot, because their possessions were so plentiful that they got in each other’s way. Abraham inherited the entire earth, as far as his eyes could see. This territory makes up the modern-day Israel today, and it will endure forever.

Galatians 3:16-18 “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. And this I say, [that] the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. For if the inheritance [be] of the law, [it is] no more of promise: but God gave [it] to Abraham by promise.”

The Old Testament Law was not even in existence when the Lord cut His everlasting covenant with Abraham. The promises He made to mankind at that time were unconditional. Circumcision of all the Jewish males served to ratify the contract between God and Abraham. The Lord purposed to show favor and grace to him because he believed God and trusted in His provision.

Gentiles also receive the promises of God by faith. We must believe in His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, if we wish to be made righteous. So too, if we are in Christ, we are Abraham’s seed, because Jesus was descended from him in the flesh. We are of royal blood and entitled to all of the same blessings that the Lord conferred on the ancient Jews through Abraham, our father.

All the nations of the world are blessed through this patriarch. We can lay claim to all his blessings if we believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ. There is no good thing – spiritual or temporal – that the Lord will ever withhold from us. He is a covenant keeping God for all the generations. He will soon gather all of the faithful to Himself for all eternity in the Kingdom of God on this earth.

Romans 4:13-16 “For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, [was] not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of the law [be] heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, [there is] no transgression. Therefore [it is] of faith, that [it might be] by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,”

If we are new creatures in Christ, then are we Abraham’s seed, just as Jesus was his descendant in the flesh. We can expect eternal blessings of peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom. We have an inheritance in the Kingdom of God that we will soon claim and enjoy for all of eternity. We will possess the gates of our enemies, and all the nations of the world will be blessed because of us.

We are a covenant people. The Lord has made an unconditional, unilateral offer of peace, provision and protection to us for our faith. He will never leave us or forsake us for any reason. We enjoy unmerited favor, or grace, in all that we think, say and do. Our God will confer divine power and authority on His people who are called by His holy name, and we will impact the fate of the entire world.

Believers are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ to all the promises of the Abrahamic covenant. We will teach all men how to dwell in love and unity as brothers and sisters. We will eradicate all war, violence and conflict; abolish poverty and lack; and bring order and stability to all of our affairs. All of mankind will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect as a direct result of our efforts on their behalf.

Heirs According To The Promise

Galatians 3:29 “And if ye [be] Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

It all begins with a quality decision to make Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives. If we believe that He was indeed the Son of God and we confess Him as our Savior, then we become Abraham’s seed according to the promise that was given to our forefather and was passed on to Jesus. We are joint-heirs with Him and entitled to all the blessings of God that were part of the original Abrahamic covenant.

All we must do is have faith and trust in the Lord to make good on His word. As He blessed Abraham with good health, renewed youthful vigor, fruit of the womb, land and wealth, He will also bless us. We will be the envy of all those who are still caught up in the decaying world system. Almighty God will cause His glorious light to shine on His people and we will be successful in all of our endeavors.

No man will be able to take a stand against us. We will have total protection from all their wickedness and evil. Health, longevity, peace and prosperity will abound in our lives and spill over to all those around us. All of the nations of the world will be blessed because of the Lord’s covenant with us. God’s people will be multiplied and fortified, so that nothing can in any way contaminate or cause us harm.

Genesis 22:17-18 “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which [is] upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”

The Lord promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations. He indeed is the patriarch of many races and tongues – Jews and Gentiles. Mankind has multiplied over the years and filled the entire earth. Those of us who are heirs to the Abrahamic covenant are guaranteed to have preeminence over our neighbors. We have an abundance of blessings that we can claim as a result. Everything that was promised to faithful Abraham now belongs to us, as His seed.

We can expect peace and prosperity in all of our affairs. The Lord will give us divine health and wellness. He will supernaturally renew our youth and give us longevity, so that we see our offspring for all the many generations to come. No man will be able to stand against us and prevail. The Lord will be our vanguard and our rear guard. We will be victorious in everything that we say and do, and be godly examples to all those who are still lost in sin and darkness in this world.

The Lord will bless those who bless us, and curse those who try to do us harm. We will possess the gates of our enemies and be rulers over all of the nations. We will become a huge multitude of righteous and godly people that will take back the entire earth from Satan, the enemy of our souls. We will succeed in everything that we do, and be the envy of all those who do not walk in covenant with our God. He will supply all our needs, protect us and glorify His people.

Genesis 12:2-3 “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

The Abrahamic covenant is a perpetual arrangement with God Himself that no man or devil can ever steal from us. It is unconditional and requires nothing on our part except faith and trust. If we believe the truth and walk in all of the righteousness that has been given us through our faith in Jesus Christ, we will be eternally blessed and totally successful in all that we undertake.

The seed of Abraham will not only inherit the entire earth, but we will be “the head and not the tail.” Kings and princes will bow to us and we will teach them God’s ways. All the nations of the world will be compelled to bless us as we bless them. We will be leaders of men – fair and just, peaceful and benevolent. We will glorify almighty God in all of our interpersonal affairs.

Our covenant ensures us that we will have all of our needs met, both spiritual and temporal. We are heirs to all the vast resources of the universe, and the Lord will gladly share them with us. We have dominion over all things in this earth, and all of creation is subject to our command. If we walk in all our God-given rights and privileges, we will reign in this life and for all eternity.

The Mosaic Covenant

Exodus 19:3-6 “And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and [how] I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth [is] mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These [are] the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”

The Lord originally intended that men have the opportunity to be free agents, since we were created in His image and likeness. However, free will is actually a mixed blessing. Man can and often does make mistakes, and bring misery and pain on himself, as a result. The Israelites turned to the Egyptians for respite and relief when famine hit their land, but it resulted in their captivity for many generations. The Lord raised up Moses to ultimately deliver them.

After the chosen people were released from their bondage in Egypt, our God provided them with abundant blessings of health, wealth and prosperity for their journey to the Promised Land. The Bible tells us that there were no sick and infirm among them. The Egyptians had given them extravagant gifts and treasures to take with them. Their shoes and clothing did not even wear out. The Lord supplied them with heavenly manna and quail to eat, plus plenty of fresh water.

However, the people were still not satisfied with all that was done for them. The Israelites forgot that the Lord had delivered them from their enemies and that they had taken spoils in their departure. They thought their trip to their new home should be quick and effortless. They grumbled and complained; rebelled against their leaders; and were ungrateful to God. The Lord had no recourse but to punish all the offenders and establish clear-cut expectations for the others.

He appointed Moses to lead the Jews, but they were very uncooperative. Moses met with the Lord on Mount Sinai and the Lord made plans to visit His people personally. He descended from the mount after three days and made His presence known to them in a cloud of glory, fire and smoke. The people were afraid for their lives and agreed to do everything the Lord asked of them. However, they soon forgot His visitation to them and reverted to their wicked ways.

Exodus 34:27-28 “And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel. And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.”

The Lord never abandoned His people even though they deserved it. He worked continually with Moses to rectify the situation. However, before too long, they were again rebellious and complained that God had delivered them only to see them destroyed. The Lord could not abide their wickedness any longer, and He was compelled to develop a new covenant with the people that was conditional on their obedience.

He called Moses up to the mountain for forty days and for forty nights. He gave him Ten Commandments, written on tablets of stone, so that His people would be well aware of their responsibilities. If they adhered to all of the commandments, they would be blessed. If they rebelled against God, they would be cursed. Those who transgressed any part of the law violated all of it, and they were subject to its just punishment.

When Moses descended from Mount Sinai with the Ten Commandments, the people were completely out of hand. They had resorted to making idols out of the silver and gold they were given by the Egyptians. They worshipped a golden calf instead of the one true God who had delivered them from their captivity. Moses was so infuriated that He threw down the stone tablets and had to meet with the Lord yet again.

Almighty God was as patient as He could be, but He was sorely tempted to destroy this ungrateful people. Had Moses not interceded for them, the entire group would have been immediately destroyed. As it was, only a remnant survived the forty years in the desert that it ultimately took for them to reach the Promised Land. Those who defied God were stricken with illness and died before they ever reached their destination.

Leviticus 19:1-4 “And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God [am] holy. Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my sabbaths: I [am] the LORD your God. Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I [am] the LORD your God.”

The glory of the Lord went with the Jews on their journey. It appeared as a cloud during the day and a pillar of fire by night. Almighty God was infinitely patient, merciful and compassionate to His people’s needs, but He tolerated no rebellion in their ranks. Moses was in continual communication with Him, and the Lord worked through him to cultivate a group of people after His own heart that He could truly bless.

Once the Israelites became accustomed to the Ten Commandments, the Lord was able to add additional requirements for their behavior, so that they would never stray from Him ever again. He had chosen and consecrated them to be a priestly nation and they had to learn to walk out their calling as His holy people.

That required them to keep all of the original commands of the Lord and adhere to the new ones, as well.

The Levitical Laws were a series of rules and regulations that specified what the Jews were supposed to do in any given situation and circumstance. Some were practical measures, meant to promote health and hygiene among the people. Others dealt with their interpersonal relationships and religious observances, which governed their behavior in everyday affairs, as well as in sacrificial offerings and celebratory feasts.

Deuteronomy 28:1-2 “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.”

An entire generation of the Jewish people perished in the desert during their forty year trip, due to their rebellion and disobedience. Moses was compelled to reiterate the law for their offspring, so that there was no excuse for misbehavior of any kind. The Lord was insistent that they keep all of His commandments so that it would be well with His people and their descendants once they entered the Promised Land.

He knew full well that they tended only towards transgression of His commands, which necessitated punishment. It grieved the Lord that His people were uncooperative, but He understood their sin nature and made allowances for their misdeeds. He never entirely forsook His covenant with them, but He definitely enforced His law to the letter. Neither the Ten Commandments nor the Levitical Laws were options.

Moses met frequently with the people and left them both the oral and written tradition that the Lord dictated to him. The first five books of the Bible were supposedly written by him and are called the Pentateuch. If the people complied with everything that the Lord asked of them, they would be blessed. If they transgressed any part of the law, they would be cursed. There was no “wiggle room” possible.

A confidant of God and a great leader to his people, Moses had delivered them from their bondage in Egypt and brought them through some difficult times in their journey to their new home. Although he was not privileged to enter the Promised Land himself due to disobedience, he spoke blessings on God’s chosen people and anointed Joshua as his successor, so that the Israelites would never lack godly leadership.

The Messianic Covenant

Hebrews 8:6 “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.”

The law could never make men perfect, regardless of how hard they tried to keep it. If they violated even one part, they were guilty of violating all of it and subject to punishment. Jesus Christ was God made man, sent to this earth to redeem all of mankind from the curse of the law. He actually became a curse for us; bore all our iniquity in His very own flesh; and then carried it to the cross.

We are no longer under the law of sin and death. Even though He knew no sin, Jesus became sin for us and then paid its penalty of death Himself. If we believe the truth and confess Him as our Lord and Savior, our sins are no longer imputed to us for any reason. We are the righteousness of God in Him. He died to save every man, woman and child from all their sins – past, present and future.

Jesus Christ came to this earth so that we would have life in abundance to the overflow. He took on all of our infirmities and bore our diseases, so that we could be healthy and well. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, so that we could live free of strife and conflict in a wicked world. He became poor and disenfranchised, so that we could be made rich with all temporal blessings.

Christ always intercedes for us and reminds almighty God of the price that was paid for our transgressions. He serves as our mediator with our heavenly Father. He was the total sacrifice that was needed to buy back our innocence, so that we could receive the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits. Jesus Christ did not come to abolish the law; He came to legally fulfill all of its requirements.

Matthew 26:28 “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”

Jesus Christ was God Himself incarnated for our express benefit. He laid down His deity when He came to this earth and was born one of us by the power of the Holy Spirit. It was a man who had originally sinned against almighty God, and it took another man to pay the price for that transgression. Christ took on all the sins of the entire human race in His own flesh.

He served as our sacrificial substitute, the perfect Lamb of God, the atonement for all of our sinfulness. His shed Blood is our guarantee of righteousness. Our sin guilt is no longer imputed to us for any reason, no matter how we may fall from grace in the days ahead. All that we need do is repent of our mistakes and the Lord will be faithful to forgive us once again.

We are now restored to right standing with our heavenly Father. We have benefits and privileges that we have not even begun to explore. We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness. We are actually seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. The Lord will bless us for all eternity because of what Christ has done.

Romans 8:2-5 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.”

What the law could not do, Jesus accomplished with His suffering and death on the cross. His Blood cleanses us of all wickedness and evil and establishes our righteousness with almighty God once and for all. The Lord no longer views us as being fallen from grace; He sees us through the Blood of Christ and accepts us as His very own sons and daughters.

If we ask the Lord for the baptism in His Holy Spirit, we are additionally strengthened in our spirit man to the point that sin no longer has a hold on us. Spiritual fruit, like the attributes of God Himself, begin to develop in our lives. We become faithful, peaceful, joyous, good, gentle, meek and temperate. Our relationships with God and one another improve.

The Holy Spirit convicts us of any sin and leads and guides us into all truth. He provides us with great gifts of the Spirit that enhance our Christian walk. We may speak in supernatural tongues, discern spirits, heal, prophesy, and receive words of wisdom and words of knowledge to share. He also reveals our divine destinies to us and equips us to operate in power.

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;”

If we have accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we become brand new creatures in Him. Our old sinful nature is passed away and we are changed from the inside out. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is totally transformed until it becomes godly. We slowly, but surely, begin to resemble Christ in everything that we think, say and do.

The Lord views us as His very own sons and daughters. We have been full reconciled with Him and we enjoy an intimate relationship now. Our heavenly Father wants nothing more than to protect us from all evil and provide all our needs in abundance. He wants to share all the vast resources of the universe with us, so that we are blessed beyond all of our expectations.

We have divine destinies to embrace that will change the fate of all mankind in the near future. We must share our faith, so that those who are still lost in sin and darkness can be redeemed just as we have been. We are ambassadors for the Kingdom of God on this earth, and the Lord will imbue us with divine power and authority to represent Him to the entire human race.

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.”

Believers are heirs to great and precious promises because of our faith in Jesus Christ and all that He accomplished on our behalf. He overcame sin, death and the grave and rose again to eternal life, so that we could be vindicated of all wrongdoing. He was the firstborn of many sons and daughters of almighty God, and He restored our dominion over all things in this earth back to us.

We are representatives for the Kingdom of God and we will impact the fate of all mankind in the days to come before Christ returns to us. We will preach the Gospel with power and conviction and baptize countless numbers of souls in the end-time harvest. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again, just as Jesus did when He walked the earth.

Through Jesus, we are more than conquerors in this life now, and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity. We will soon share in His honor and glory. He will appoint us as kings and priests of almighty God. We will judge both men and angels. We will teach others how to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters, and rule and reign with Christ over all the nations.

The Kingdom of God will be heaven on this earth for all those who are worthy to enter into it. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us. He will bind up all our wounds and blot out all pain and suffering from our memories. He will change our mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in His awesome presence.

An Everlasting Covenant Of Peace

Genesis 17:7 “And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.”

Our God wants nothing more than to be in an intimate relationship with mankind forever more. He has done everything that He can to make peace between us. He made covenantal promises to our forefathers that extend to each and every one of us who claim them. As long as we show Him the deference and respect that He deserves, the Lord will continue to bless us.

If we believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, and all that He accomplished on our behalf, there will never be a question concerning our right standing with almighty God. Jesus died to pay our sin debt in full and to bring us life in abundance to the overflow. We have grace with God that will benefit us in every area of our lives, now, and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity.

The Lord will soon gather us to Himself as He has always desired. He will protect us from all harm and provide all of our needs. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. He will heal all of our pain and suffering and take vengeance on all of our enemies. He will change our mortal bodies into new, resurrection forms that live forever in His awesome presence.

Our children and our children’s children will be blessed for all generations to come. Soon all flesh will know the Lord and the power of His might. His laws will be written in our minds and in our hearts for all eternity, so that we are always righteous. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts.

Isaiah 54:10 “For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.”

The earth and everything in it will be changed to line up with God’s perfect will. We will escape the wrath that is coming on all wickedness and evil and have peace and protection, despite what is going on around us. Our God will bring us into His everlasting Kingdom totally unscathed. He will be our God, and we will be the people who are called by His holy name.

The Lord will boast of us to all creation, and supply all of our needs even before we ask Him. He will vindicate us before both men and angels, and restore everything that has been taken from us. Our physical bodies will be changed, so that we are no longer subject to disease, decay and death. We will dwell with Him in a literal paradise on this earth for all time.

This world will never end; we have almighty God’s promise that He will sustain the human race for all generations to come. We have an eternal covenant of peace with our Creator. We can expect to see new heavens and a new earth very soon now. We will experience peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom forever more.

We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden. The Lord has been infinitely patient, merciful and compassionate to us, despite our many mistakes and overt rebellion. He will draw us very close to Him, so that we are never separated ever again. His deepest desire is to provide for us and protect us from all evil. We can trust that He will always keep His word.

Ezekiel 37:26-27 “Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

The Lord will never leave us or forsake us. He is a good and gracious God and always honors His promises. He no longer imputes our sins to us; Jesus Christ paid the price for our righteousness with His very own Blood. The slate has been wiped clean and we are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden. The Lord will bless His people, as He has always desired.

Our heavenly Father will soon come and take up residence with us for all of eternity in the Kingdom of God on this earth. He will reside on His holy mountain outside the New Jerusalem and take an active interest in our lives. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from His children. We will be healthy, happy and prosperous for all generations to come.

There will be no more death and destruction, no wars and conflict, no poverty and lack. The Lord will supply all our needs in abundance. He will protect us from all evil and make certain that nothing harms or defiles us ever again. Men will be righteous and dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We will be fruitful and multiply until we cover the entire earth.

All flesh will worship our God in Spirit and in truth for all of eternity. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts, so that we always do His will. Both men and angels will glorify His holy name, and we will give Him all of the thanks and praise that He deserves. He will be our God and we will celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness.

 

 

 

Chapter 3 – Eternal Life

John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

Man was created in the very image and likeness of almighty God to live forever in heaven on the earth and to have all our needs met in abundance. However, sin and death entered the picture and spoiled these plans for us. When Adam rebelled in the Garden of Eden, the Lord was compelled to banish him from paradise and sentence him to spiritual and physical death for his transgression.

Through the sin of one man, the entire human race was affected. We inherited generational iniquity that separated us from God and put us under the curse. Human beings tend only to sin and evil when left to our own devices. There was only one way to redeem us from our sins and restore us to right standing with our God. He would have to take on human form and cancel our sin debt legally.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to this earth and became one of us. He was born of a woman by the power of the Holy Spirit and human in all respects, yet he was totally sinless and perfect in all His ways. He voluntarily laid down His own life for the benefit of all mankind. Jesus suffered and died to pay the penalty for our sins, so that we would not have to endure the same fate.

Our Lord and Savior bore all of our infirmities and carried our diseases, so that we could be healed. He became a curse for us, so we could be blessed. Jesus spoiled principalities and powers and took back our dominion over the entire earth from Satan, the enemy of our souls. He bought back our righteousness, so that we could reign in this life, and in the Kingdom to come, for all eternity.

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Just as death reigned ever since the fall of Adam, so now does grace abound for all mankind because of what Jesus Christ did for us. We no longer face never ending punishment in the lake of fire as the penalty for our sins. We have been set free in the truth and received the gift of eternal life by faith. If we are sincere believers, then all things become new for us.

The Lord no longer imputes our sins to us for any reason. We have been washed clean in the Blood of Jesus Christ once and for all. We are righteous sons and daughters of almighty God and heirs to all of His promises. He will bless us with all spiritual and temporal benefits. We will live forever in good health and vitality to see our children and our children’s children.

Our God will bind up all of our wounds and deliver us from all of our pain and suffering. He will wreak vengeance on all of our enemies and restore everything that has been taken from us. We will have peace and prosperity as never before. He will protect us from all wickedness and evil. We will soon dwell in His holy presence and give Him all the thanks and praise.

John 6:37-40 “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”

The Lord will reject no one who reaches out to Him with a repentant heart. Everyone who believes in the Son of God and all that He accomplished on our behalf will be accepted in the beloved. If we believe in Jesus Christ and confess Him as our personal Lord and Savior, we will be saved to eternal life. He will raise us up on the last day, just as He was raised from the dead.

We can now have hope and confidence for our future. We are no longer lost in sin and condemned to never ending punishment. The Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us of all unrighteousness and restores us to right standing with our Creator. The Lord looks at us as His very own sons and daughters, and He will meet all our needs in abundance from the vast resources of the universe.

There is no good thing that almighty God will ever withhold from us now that we are born again. He wants to provide for us and protect us from all evil. He will vindicate us before both men and angels. We are His very own children and we enjoy an intimate relationship with Him. Our heavenly Father will boast of us to all creation and glorify us, just as He does His Son, Jesus Christ.

Very soon now, He will gather us to Himself for all of eternity in the everlasting Kingdom of God on this earth. He will change these mortal bodies into new, resurrection forms that never get sick and die. We will see our offspring for all the many generations to come. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom in the very presence of almighty God.

1John 5:20 “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.”

He, who knew no sin Himself, became sin for us and then bore its curse on the cross. Jesus was the total propitiation for the sins of all mankind – past, present and future. Because of His obedience unto death, we have become the righteousness of God and heirs to eternal life. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us. We have unmerited favor, or grace, with Him.

We are new creatures in Christ; He now dwells in our spirit man. We are actually seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. We can approach the throne of God without fear, shame or condemnation and be assured that all of our prayers will be heard. The Lord wants to bless us and protect us from all evil. He will never leave us or forsake us ever again.

The Lord promises us that He will never impute our sin guilt to us for any reason. We are righteous by faith in Jesus Christ and heirs to all of His promises. We will live forever and enter into His everlasting Kingdom on this earth. We are future kings and priests of God and we will judge both men and angels. We will even rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

Faith In The Son

John 5:24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

Even though we may really deserve it, we will escape never ending condemnation and punishment by death if we believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and appropriate His righteousness by faith. While we were once dead in our sins, we have been raised again to life through our Lord and Savior. He paid our sin debt in its entirety with His suffering and death on the cross.

He bore our iniquity in His very own body and bought back our righteousness with His sacrifice on our behalf. He was the total atonement that was required for the sins of the entire human race. Jesus did it all; the Lord no longer looks at our sin guilt. It is washed clean in Christ’s Blood. We are His actual sons and daughters now, and entitled to receive all of His promises.

Disease and death no longer have a hold on us. We will live forever in heaven on the earth and see our offspring for all generations to come. The Lord will provide all of our needs, even before we ask Him. He will make certain that we are always healthy, happy and prosperous. Our heavenly Father is coming to take up residence with us, and we will all thrive in His presence.

Romans 5:21 “That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.”

While sin once dominated our lives and determined our fate, we have been set free from its curse. Thanks to the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, we now have all the blessings of eternal life to ponder for our future. We are cleansed by His Blood offering and we now have grace, or unmerited favor, with God. Guilt, shame and condemnation are gone forever more.

When the Lord looks at us, He sees Jesus in all of His righteousness. He no longer holds us responsible for our transgressions – past, present or future. We are actually seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of almighty God Himself. We need not ever worry that our prayers will be heard. The Lord will meet all our needs in abundance, as He has promised us.

We are sons and daughters, heirs to salvation, and we can expect certain rights and privileges as a result. Divine health and wellness, prosperity and wealth, safety and security all belong to us. The Lord will deliver us from all evil and transform our lives until we become godly. He will soon gather us to Himself and we will abide in heaven on this earth for all eternity.

John 6:54 “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Jesus Christ actually dwells in us now that we are born again. Every time we eat the bread and drink the wine of the new covenant, we recall His suffering and death and celebrate His resurrection. Just as Jesus was raised from the dead, His followers will also experience eternal life. When He returns to this earth to set up His everlasting Kingdom, all the dead in Christ will be raised back to life once again.

Each of us will face judgment to determine whether our works in the flesh were good or evil. If we have been righteous and obedient, we have nothing to fear. We will live forever in Jesus Christ’s awesome presence and never have to worry about disease and death ever again. We will be reunited with all of our loved ones and dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters for generations to come.

However, those who have been rebellious and unrepentant will be severely judged by Christ on the last day. They will be found lacking and spend all of eternity in the unquenchable lake of fire. Satan and all of his minions will be banished to the bottomless pit, so that they can no longer oppress God’s people in any way. No wickedness and evil will ever enter into the Kingdom of God to harm or defile any of us.

1John 5:11-13 “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; [and] he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”

It is difficult to imagine that we will live forever, but that is exactly what God has promised to us for our faith. Death has lost its sting for all time. If we believe in the Word and confess Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will receive the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits. We will dwell in a literal paradise on this earth in the very presence of almighty God.

The Lord will meet all of our needs, according to His riches in glory. We will have good health and vitality in brand new, resurrection bodies. We will fear no evil; it will be removed far from us. The Lord will punish our enemies and banish them from our midst. Everything that we have lost will be restored to us.

We will have peace and prosperity beyond all our imaginings.

There will be no more death and destruction, no poverty and lack, no pain and suffering. All men will soon be righteous and relate to one another as brothers and sisters. We will build beautiful homes to lodge our large families and grow crops for our food. All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful. There will be new heavens and a new earth that we enjoy for all of eternity.

Saved By Grace

Romans 5:18-19 “Therefore as by the offence of one [judgment came] upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [the free gift came] upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”

Just as the sin of Adam brought never ending condemnation on the entire human race, so too, the sacrifice of Jesus Christ has brought all of us eternal salvation. We are saved by grace to become the righteousness of almighty God through our faith in what He did for us. Our sin guilt is no longer held against us; it has been washed clean in the Blood of our Lord and Savior once and for all.

Jesus was human as we are and yet perfectly sinless and obedient, even unto death. He suffered and died, so that we would not have to do the same. He took on all of our sins, as if they were His very own, and then paid the price for them with His life, so that we could be restored to right standing with our heavenly Father. Because of Him, we will live forever in a paradise on this earth.

The fate of all mankind has been altered by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are no longer at enmity with our Creator, nor subject to His wrath in the days to come. We now have favor with our God, and He views us as accepted in the beloved. We are His very own sons and daughters, and heirs to all of the covenant promises that He made with mankind throughout the years.

We are blessed to be a blessing to every race, tongue and nation. Believers will multiply and take back this entire earth for our Lord and Savior. No man or devil will be able to prevail against us, as we usher in the everlasting Kingdom of almighty Godis saintsH. We will finally bring peace to this world and abolish poverty and lack. We will restore all of creation back to its original beauty and balance.

Titus 3:5-7 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Nothing that we can do in our own strength will ever make us righteous. It is only through our faith in God’s beloved Son, that we have received His mercy and compassion and the forgiveness of all our sins. The Blood of Jesus Christ alone vindicates us, so that we are now restored to our right standing with our heavenly Father; saved by grace; and heirs to all His promises.

With rights and privileges, as the sons and daughters of God, come corresponding responsibilities. We are specifically blessed, so we can be a blessing to others. The Lord has saved us from all of our sins, so that we could, in turn, lead others to Him. There are many who are still lost in darkness and deception. They will go to perdition unless we make them aware of the truth.

We have divine destinies as the children of God, and we will partner with Him to change the fate of the entire human race. We will share our faith with power and conviction, and win many souls for the Kingdom of God. We will urge men, women and children everywhere to repent and be baptized in Jesus’ name. Everyone who is righteous will be saved to eternal life.

The Holy Spirit will do the work of redemption through us. Countless numbers of lives will be touched. Minds will be renewed in the truth and behavior transformed. Christ will come and dwell in each and every one of us, and we will be justified by our faith. All believers will enter into the Kingdom of God and dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.

Ephesians 2:5-9 “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 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.”

None of us can ever be righteous and holy in our own strength. We have been purged and cleansed of all of our transgressions and generational iniquity by the Blood of Jesus Christ, and that alone. He served as our sacrificial substitute, so that we would not have to pay the penalty of death for our own sins. Jesus was the perfect Lamb of God that was slain from the very foundation of the world.

All honor, praise and glory belong to Him for what He has accomplished on behalf of all mankind. He is exalted before both men and angels, and seated at the right hand of the Father in heavenly places. We who believe in Him are where He is – in the actual throne room of God. We have been raised to glory for our faith and we will inherit the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits.

Our future is a bright and promising one because of the never failing kindness and goodness of almighty God. The Lord will never abandon His people for any reason, no matter how dark things might become on this earth before Christ returns to set up His everlasting Kingdom. He will deliver us from all evil and spare us from the tribulation and punishment that is coming on the wicked.

He will gather us to Himself for all of eternity. We will have all of our needs met in abundance and dwell in His awesome presence. There will be no good thing that we ever lack, spiritual or temporal. The Lord will make certain that we are always healthy, happy and prosperous. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and give our God all the praise, gratitude and honor that He deserves.

A Glimpse Of Immortality

2Timothy 1:9-10 “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, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:”

Jesus Christ came to this earth to destroy the works of the devil; to save all of mankind from our sins; and to bring us life in abundance to the overflow. He was perfect and sinless in all of His ways and obedient to the Father. He overcame sin, death and the grave and took back man’s dominion over the earth. Jesus demonstrated that believers can reign in this world and for all of eternity.

We are the actual sons and daughters of almighty God Himself through faith, and heirs to salvation with all of its many benefits. We have divine callings that will impact the fate of the entire human race. We must imitate the laid down life of Christ Himself, and resume His ministry where He left off. We will preach the Gospel and see many others redeemed from sin as a result of our efforts.

The Lord promises everlasting life to as many who believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, and the power of the cross. He abolished death for all time with His very own pain and suffering. Our Savior then rose from the dead, so that we could spend all of eternity with Him in paradise. No righteous man, woman or child will ever perish. Jesus will gather them all into the Kingdom of almighty God.

1Corinthians 15:50-54 “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.”

When Jesus Christ appears, all the dead will be raised back to life once again to face judgment with the rest of us. The Lord will change these mortal bodies that are subject to disease, decay and death into new, glorious, resurrections forms like His very own. We will see Him as He is, and be like Him in every way. Death will be swallowed up in victory once and for all.

All those who are righteous and obedient will enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God on this earth. We will live forever in God’s awesome presence, and thrive in the midst of all the blessings He has in store for us. However, all of the wicked and rebellious will be cast into the unquenchable lake of fire, where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth for all of eternity.

The Lord will provide for His people and take an active interest in all the details of our lives. No need – spiritual or temporal – will go unmet. He will lavish us with blessings and share all the vast resources of the universe with us. All men will be righteous and dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters, or be banished from the Kingdom forever more.

Revelation 21:3-4 “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.

We will no longer remember all the wickedness and evil that was present on this earth. The Lord will mercifully blot out all that from our memories. He will make all things new for us. All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful and subject to man once again, just as it was in the Garden of Eden. Our God will wipe away every tear and comfort His people forever more.

There will be no more pain and suffering, no disease and death, nor contamination and defilement of any kind in Christ’s Kingdom. It will literally be paradise on this earth for all those who are deemed righteous. The Lord will make certain that we are always healthy, happy and prosperous. We will see our offspring for all generations to come and dwell in peaceful habitations.

The Lord will relate intimately to us as His very own sons and daughters. He will meet all of our needs, even before we ask Him. He will be our God and we will be His people. We will thrive in His awesome presence, and give Him all the thanks, praise and honor that He deserves. Both men and angels will go up to the New Jerusalem to worship Him on His holy mountain.

Laying Hold Of Eternal Life

1Timothy 6:11-12 “But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”

The gift of eternal life is not simply going to fall on us; we have to do our part in laying hold of it. We must repent of all our sins and accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior. When we do, we begin a process of regeneration in our spirit man. Our minds are gradually renewed in the truth and our behavior is slowly, but surely, transformed until it becomes godly.

The things of this world will no longer have as strong a hold on us. We will pursue the ways of God and seek His baptism in the Holy Spirit. That will change our lives as nothing else can. The fruit of the Spirit will begin to develop in us, so that we become faithful, peaceful and joyous. We will be meek, good, gentle, temperate and patient in our dealings with others.

We will embrace our divine destinies and be godly role models to all those who are still lost in sin and darkness. We will share our faith with power and conviction and lead many souls into the Kingdom of God through our efforts. All those who pursue righteousness will be saved, just as we have been. The Lord will soon gather all of the redeemed to Himself for all eternity.

Romans 6:20-22 “For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things [is] death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.”

Although we were once lost in darkness and servants of sin, we have become righteous through our faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His Blood covers us for all of our transgressions – past, present and future. Through Him, we receive the gift of everlasting life with all of its many benefits. We no longer have to endure the penalty of death for our sins.

We are brand new creatures in Christ. We will ultimately grow and develop into fully mature sons and daughters of God. Our lives will be tangible demonstrations of Jesus Christ’s righteousness. We will present our bodies as living sacrifices to almighty God and serve Him as we are destined to do. We will operate in the power of His very own Holy Spirit.

Every man, woman and child will have an opportunity to hear the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Many will repent and be converted to the truth that sets them free. We will baptize countless numbers of souls in Jesus’ mighty name. We will heal all the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life once again, as Christ did when He walked on the earth.

The fate of the entire human race will be altered through our efforts on behalf of our Lord and Savior. We will advance His Kingdom in this world and bring peace, order and stability to all of our affairs. We will restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance and refurbish the entire earth, so that heaven can be brought here as almighty God plans and purposes.

Galatians 6:7-9 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

We will reap what we sow in the days to come. We can choose to remain selfish and carnal, or embrace true righteousness through our faith in Jesus Christ. If we accept the truth and act on it, we will eventually become slaves to righteousness and holiness, rather than to sin and evil. Our motives will be pure; our behavior will be changed; and all of our actions will be beneficial to the Lord and to others.

Our God will be able to count on us to usher in His everlasting Kingdom to this earth. He will imbue us with divine power and authority to serve as His representatives. We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good. There will be no more strife and division among us, no social injustice of any kind. We will abolish poverty and lack by sharing what we have with those who are less fortunate.

All men will learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity. We will serve as godly role models and teach them God’s way of doing things. Heaven will be brought to this earth as a direct result of our efforts. The Lord will be pleased with us and boast of us to all of creation. We will share in Jesus Christ’s honor and glory, and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world.

John 12:25-26 “He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will [my] Father honour.”

If we believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and all that He did for us, we are crucified with Him and become brand new creatures. We must surrender all that we are and relinquish all that we have to gain everlasting life with all of its many blessings. However, it will be well worth our sacrifice in the long run. The things of this world are only fleeting pleasures that will not benefit us in light of eternity.

We have to lay down our lives as Christ Himself did and embrace our divine destinies in the critical days that lie ahead. The world is lost in sin, darkness and deception. Men are desperate for the truth and eager to hear the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. We should present ourselves as sacred vessels, consecrated to God’s work. We have to be righteous role models and strong leaders to His people.

If we sanctify ourselves of all known sin, the Lord will be able to empower us to serve Him in ways that we never dreamed were possible. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that hold men in bondage to sin and evil. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and baptize many souls to eternal life. We will heal the sick, and even raise the dead back to life again through the power that works in us.

Our Lord will be glorified through those of us who are called by His holy name. He will boast of us to all of creation as His very own sons and daughters. We will judge both men and angels and even be appointed kings and priests of almighty God. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance, and rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of this world.

 

 

Chapter 4 – Divine Health And Wellness

Genesis 2:15-16 “And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Almighty God’s greatest desire is to provide for mankind, as He planned from the very foundation of the world. His intent is to sustain every life form – especially man – to utter perfection. He created us in His very image and likeness, so that we would see days of heaven on this earth. Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden, where all of their needs were satisfied.

They had access to every tree in paradise, except the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. They were forbidden to eat of its fruit and warned that they would surely die if they did. Our ancestors enjoyed divine providence, as long as they were cooperative with God’s will. If they remained intimately connected to Him, the Lord would supply all the resources of the universe.

Satan, a fallen angel of the highest order, was determined to usurp God’s plans and destroy the ideal relationship that man had with the Lord. He tempted the first woman and she defied the Lord’s command by eating of the forbidden fruit. She also gave some to her husband and our progenitors’ fate was sealed. They instantly fell from the glory of God into condemnation.

Adam and Eve were banished from paradise and forced to make their own way in this world. They went from divine provision for all of their needs to just getting by as they could. Their perfect health declined, since they were relegated to lives of stress and hard labor. They suffered with pain, disease and eventual death, because of their deliberate disobedience to their Creator.

Psalm 107:17-20 “Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered [them] from their destructions.”

Man was never created to get sick and die. He was meant to live forever in paradise on this earth in the very presence of almighty God Himself. However, when sin came on the scene, everything changed. It was then appointed for man to die spiritually and physically, as a result of his transgression. Weakness and infirmity came on the entire human race and caused disease, decay and death to occur.

Adam and Eve had to till the soil and survive by the sweat of their brow. They bore children in pain and suffering, and those descendants all got sick and died because of the generational iniquity that each had inherited. Man’s plight was, and still is, quite helpless without the Lord’s intervention. If we cry out to God, He will always be merciful and compassionate to our vulnerable human condition.

The wages of sin are death. Disobedience brings destruction of spirit, soul and body on us. It also subjects us to the curse and robs us of our blessings. If we purposely choose sin and rebellion, we will never enter into any of the promises of God. We will struggle to sustain life and be subject to trouble all of our days. There is no way that the Lord is obligated to help us if we purposely defy or reject Him.

The Lord made provision for our deliverance from the gates of death and pits of hell. He sent Jesus Christ, the living Word of God, to this earth to redeem us of our sins and release us from the penalty of death. Christ was our sacrificial substitute; He paid our sin debt and brought us health and wellness, plus the gift of eternal life. Jesus suffered and died so that we would not have to endure the same fate.

Proverbs 4:20-23 “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they [are] life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life.”

The Lord has a perfect plan for our lives that includes divine health and wellness, plus longevity. If we are self-disciplined in our personal habits – that is, if we eat well, exercise, get plenty of sleep and keep a positive mindset – we will thrive. In addition, we must put the Lord first in our lives and adhere to all of His commandments, since they were given to us for our express benefit.

If we feed on the Word of God and obey it at all times, that will bring health and wellness to our flesh. Our heavenly Father wants us to be healthy and happy, so that we can serve Him and His people with joy and gladness. He has made provision for all of our needs; we need not be anxious or worried about temporal or spiritual things. He will make absolutely certain that we are covered.

We must be careful to focus our attention on “life” with all of its many blessings. We cannot succumb to fear, doubt or unbelief or speak negativity to our situation and circumstances. If we should become ill, it is critical that we concentrate on the solution to the problem, not the problem itself. We must learn to decree and declare all the promises of God concerning health and wellness for us.

The Lord says that if we walk in His ways, that He will indeed bless us in every area of our lives. His plan is for us to enjoy days of heaven on the earth, now and for all eternity. Very soon now, He will usher in His Kingdom. There will be no disease and death ever again. He will change these mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in His awesome presence.

The Lord Wants Us Healthy

Psalm 42:11 “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.”

Mental / emotional stress is the number one cause of disease and premature death. It brings undue pain and suffering for all who are afflicted by it. We must purposely choose to take all our thoughts captive and focus on the blessings that the Lord has provided for us. He wants us to be healthy and well at all times, thriving in this world, and in the Kingdom to come, for all of eternity.

When we have a personal relationship with our Creator and His Son, Jesus Christ, we are changed from the inside out. Our bodies, souls and spirits feel at peace, and we experience freedom from stress and anxiety. Our very appearance changes as we project a positive outlook and a pleasant, attractive smile. We even carry ourselves differently; there is hope and confidence in our stride.

We have more energy and enthusiasm. We don’t find ourselves hiding from others, but freely mixing with them, and spontaneously sharing our testimony. We are transformed into godly role models, and embrace our divine destinies as the very sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. We are willing to share all that we have with those who are still caught up in the ways of the world.

Jeremiah17:14 “Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou [art] my praise.”

If we should ever become ill, we can cry out to God for His healing and deliverance and He will always respond. We cannot put all of our faith and trust in traditional, man-made medicine, as that will disappoint us and often leave us worse off than when we began our treatment. The Lord is our healer and our source of all good things. He wants us to trust Him for our health and well-being, so that we can glorify Him.

A natural by-product of good health and divine wellness is joy. It is a fruit of the Holy Spirit and it comes from knowing who we are in Christ. We should always acknowledge our God by giving Him thanks and praise for all the good things that we have. When we praise and worship the Lord, we release endorphins into our system, which elevate our moods and positively affect the performance of our bodies, as well.

Balanced diet, regular exercise and consistent sleep patterns will aid us in maintaining divine health and wellness. Meaningful work that helps others will provide us with personal satisfaction and increase our self-esteem. Plenty of relaxation and leisure time will greatly enhance the quality of our lives and keep us youthful and optimistic. Peaceful, interpersonal relationships will help us maintain a positive outlook.

Divine health and wellness are always accessible to us. The Lord wants His people whole and intact, free from anything that might affect us adversely. If we trust Him for divine guidance in managing our lives and in preventing depression and disease, He will always lead us into paths of healthy, wholesome living. We should never take our good health or our longevity for granted; they are awesome gifts of God to us.

Exodus 23:25 “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”

We will teach others to hear from God, so that they have meaning and purpose for their lives. The Holy Spirit that works through us will convict them of sin and set them free in the truth. We will encourage them to accept Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and to appropriate His righteousness and strength. We will encourage everyone to develop healthy habits that lead to life instead of death.

Believers will lead by example and embrace our divine destinies as the sons and daughters of God. We will lay hands on the sick, and they will all recover. We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil of all kinds. We will even raise the dead back to life once again, just as Jesus Christ did during His time with us. We will advance the Kingdom of God on this earth, as it is in heaven.

There is no excuse for man to ever experience emotional depression or physical disease. The Lord wants His people set free to enjoy life in abundance to the overflow. His greatest desire is to see us walk as Jesus Christ did on this earth. We can appropriate His very own self-discipline, authority and dominion over all forms of resistance. We will overcome all evil with good, and rule and reign in this life.

3John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

The Lord wants us to prosper and be in health even as our souls – our minds, wills and emotions – prosper. Our souls can only prosper when we submit to almighty God and walk in His ways. The Bible, as the Word of God Himself, has given us valuable information on every subject imaginable. We can obtain practical advice for everyday life, as well as a detailed revelation of deeper, spiritual things.

If we have any personal needs, we can always cry out to the Lord. He hears every prayer, and He stands ready to provide anything that we might require. He will satisfy every one of our temporal and spiritual requirements, according to His riches in glory. He will share all the vast resources of this universe with those who seek His face. We should trust Him to provide for us and protect us from all evil.

Our God wants us to be healthy and happy, so that we can embrace our divine destinies and lead others out of the sin, darkness and destruction that are all around them in this world. The fate of all mankind lies in the balance. We must be godly role models in every area of our lives, so we can be an inspiration to others. We will share our faith with all mankind and lead many into the everlasting Kingdom of God.

There will be no sick and infirm among us, as we enter into eternity in a literal heaven on this earth. The Lord will meet all of our needs in abundance. He will change these mortal bodies that are susceptible to illness and decay into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in good health and vitality. We will be youthful and see our children and our children’s children for all the many generations to come.

The Healing Anointing Of Jesus Christ

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.”

Jesus Christ came to this earth to bring us life in abundance to the overflow. He did not come to condemn us, but to defeat the works of the devil. He was anointed with divine power and authority to heal the sick; cast out demons; and even raise the dead back to life again. He walked in the fullness of the Holy Spirit of God at all times. Wherever there was a need, our Savior met it.

The Lord demonstrated the very love, mercy and compassion of His heavenly Father towards all of mankind. He only did what He was told to do. He did not have to labor excessively to minister to the people. Healing virtue simply came out of Him and flowed forth to meet their needs. He took dominion over evil spirits and commanded that they set their victims free.

Everywhere Jesus went there were miraculous signs and wonders that followed Him. Men took notice; demons shuddered; and lives were changed for the better. He redeemed the entire human race with His suffering and death on the cross. He bore our infirmities and carried our diseases, so that we could be made healthy and whole, and live forever in the Kingdom of God.

Hebrews 4:14-16 “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast [our] profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

Our Lord and Savior is infinitely compassionate to the human condition. He walked among us as a man Himself, so He is sympathetic to our weaknesses. He understands how we struggle with our flesh, and He is always ready to provide for us. We can approach the throne of grace with any need and know, for a fact, that it will be met. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us.

Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father, and He always makes intercession for us. We require His active assistance to overcome all the adversity that tries to attack us in body, mind, soul or spirit. He is our strength and assurance that we can prevail over all attempts of the enemy to harm and defile us. If we trust Jesus with every aspect of our lives, He will always be faithful to protect us.

Sometimes we bring health problems on ourselves through bad habits and addictions, yet the Lord is ever merciful and compassionate to our plight. He reveals Himself to us, so that we can appropriate His strength for all our needs. He will grant us supernatural power and authority to conquer all of our temptations that threaten our heath and well being, so that we can be preserved until He returns.

Isaiah 53:4-5 “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

The penalty for sin is death, but the blessings of God include divine health and wellness. Our Lord wants us to live out our days in good health and vitality, until we reach a ripe old age and He calls us home. There is no reason why we should ever suffer pain in our minds or in our bodies. Jesus Christ came to this earth to redeem us from the curse and everything that goes with it.

The Bible tells us that Jesus bore our infirmities and carried our diseases in His own flesh, and that by His stripes we were healed of all our afflictions. That was accomplished at the cross two thousand years ago, and all that we must do today is lay claim to it and receive it with thanksgiving. Believers in Jesus Christ have access to perfect health and youthful energy, plus long life.

We also have divine destinies as the sons and daughters of almighty God. We are able to operate in the power of His Holy Spirit and resume Christ’s ministry right where He left off. We will usher the Kingdom of God into this earth in the days to come. We will be anointed with divine power and authority, just as Jesus was, so that we can serve all of mankind as we are called to do.

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.”

Believers are privileged to be able to walk just as Christ did on this earth. We have a sacred calling and a divine destiny that must be fulfilled. We will impact the fate of the entire human race and glorify our God in the process. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every race, tongue and nation of the world, and see countless numbers of souls baptized in His name.

There will be no sickness and infirmity, as we lay hands on all those who are afflicted. We will cast out demons that keep others in bondage to sin and evil. We will even raise the dead back to life again through the operation of the Holy Spirit of God that works through us. Nothing will in any way harm us; we will tear down all satanic strongholds that impede our progress.

We will rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing, and set men free in the truth. Our God wants them healthy and at peace, so that He is glorified. We will lead by our righteous example and teach others wholesome lifestyles. There will be no sick or afflicted among us, as we meet our Creator and enter into all He has planned for us in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

Healing Miracles

Matthew 4:23-24 “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.”

Jesus Christ developed quite a reputation for healing and deliverance when He walked among us. He not only preached the good news of the Kingdom of God to set the captives free, but He also healed all those who were sick and oppressed of the devil. All He required, in return, is that that people would believe and have faith in God, so it could be done for them accordingly.

Our Lord did everything that our heavenly Father asked of Him. He was totally obedient and that was the one secret to His success. He prayed and received instruction in each and every instance of miraculous healing. In some cases, Jesus simply spoke to the disease and it vanished. In other situations, He asked the afflicted person to do something to help remedy the problem.

In still other cases, Jesus forgave them their sins and their diseases left them. He even laid hands on people and made a healing salve out of the dust of the earth combined with His very own spittle. Many times, the healing power of the Holy Spirit simply flowed through our Lord, and people were healed and delivered. There was no condition that was too difficult for Him to handle.

Mark 1:34 “And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him”

Jesus treated each set of circumstances individually. He relied solely on divine guidance from His heavenly Father for His healing methodology. He often rebuked demons and they cried out to Him. He usually silenced them and cast them out of their victims. Christ never left the sick people the same as He found theme found them; He healed all those who were in need, without exception.

The only thing that interfered with His healing anointing was unbelief. He repeatedly encouraged those who were afflicted in any way to have faith. If a person truly believed, Jesus was always able to cure them immediately. In some instances, He healed vicariously through others, as was the case with Jairus’ daughter and the Roman centurion who requested help for his servant.

Those who were blind, mute and deaf received their faculties returned to them. Jesus healed the lame and cleansed the lepers. He delivered epileptics and freed the demoniacs. He treated generational iniquities and destroyed them at their roots. He also performed healing anomalies that were strictly meant to reveal the power and glory of God. He even raised the dead back to life again.

Luke 9:11 “And the people, when they knew [it], followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.”

Christ went about doing good to all whom He met during His earthly ministry. He always served others unselfishly and never turned anyone away. When the people learned that He had healing power, they thronged to be near Him and receive deliverance from all of their afflictions. The miracles were a tangible manifestation of the infinite love, mercy and compassion of almighty God.

Our Lord and Savior always pointed men to the Father, and encouraged them to pray and believe that He would answer all their prayers and meet all of their needs according to His riches in glory. He was able to speak freely to them about the Kingdom of God and teach them how they could enter into it. He urged repentance from their sins and stressed love and obedience as a way of life.

Jesus had unfailing patience and endurance throughout His ministry and He delegated all of His power and authority to those who believed in Him. He promised that we would do all the works that He did, and even greater works, since He was ascending to His Father. Christ gave us a divine commission to preach the Gospel and work miracles, signs and wonders in His name until He returned.

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.”

If we are willing and obedient, we will positively impact the future of the entire human race. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and conviction to every race, tongue and nation, and see countless numbers of souls gathered in the end-time harvest. Men, women and children will all have an equal opportunity to repent of their sins; be born again in their spirits; and baptized to eternal life.

Disciples of Jesus Christ will heal the sick of all their afflictions; cast out demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil; and even raise the dead back to life once again. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk through our efforts. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that interfere with our work or impede our progress. We will advance the Kingdom of God everywhere we go.

We will bring peace, order and stability to the entire earth, and teach all of mankind to dwell together as brothers and sisters in love and unity. Strife and division will not even be named among us. All men will have healthy, happy relationships with one another. There will be no sick or infirm among us. Our youth will be renewed like the eagle’s, and we will see our offspring for all the many generations to come.

Long Life

Psalm 103:2-5 “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good [things; so that] thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.”

Contrary to what many believe, the Lord does not give us pain and suffering, sickness and disease as a form of punishment. He is not out to “teach us a lesson” or “get back at us” in any way. He has only our best interest at heart. He wants nothing more than to provide us with all that we require to be healthy and happy in this world, and in the Kingdom to come, for all of eternity.

God gets no glory if His people experience any lack. He wants us to have all of our needs met, so that we can demonstrate His goodness to all those around us. He is ever generous to His people and will hear all of our prayers. His greatest delight is that we rely on Him for every good thing in our lives. If we seek Him first, everything that we might ever require will be given to us.

Jesus Christ came to this earth, so that we could have life in abundance to the overflow. In His infinite mercy and kindness, He has made eternal life available to each and every one of us who believe in Him. We are forgiven of our sins; released from all generational iniquity; and healed of all our diseases. We can look forward to long lives of good health and youthful vitality.

Proverbs 3:1-2 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.”

We cannot be doing our own thing and expect that the Lord will bless us, however. He wants us to walk in His ways and obey all of His commandments. They were given to us for our express benefit. Almighty God has perfect plans for us, and if we cooperate with them, we will always be blessed. He will give us length of days and peace in all of our situations and circumstances.

The world around us may become very challenging in the critical days to come, but we can trust that almighty God will always provide for and protect His people. We need not be anxious about anything – spiritual or temporal. The Lord holds the solution to all of our problems and perplexities. He is ever generous to His people and intent on our welfare above all things.

It is vital that we walk in love and obey all that the Lord instructs us to do, so that we can experience days of heaven on this earth. We can and should work at hearing His voice and rely solely on His guidance. He will never leave us or forsake us, no matter how dark things might become. He will always provide what we need, as we need it, so that we can be successful in all that we do.

Deuteronomy 6:2 “That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.”

Our Creator deserves our deferential respect; we should always have a healthy fear and reverence of Him. He has established moral absolutes that we should all obey, so that things might go well for us all the days of our lives. God’s ways are higher than our own and we must be diligent to walk in them. We cannot enjoy His promises unless we are faithful to all His commandments.

The Lord wants to bless us with good health and longevity, so that we can advance His Kingdom on this earth, just as it is in heaven. We should share our faith with all mankind, so that they can be delivered from the sin and bondage that threaten to overtake them in these last days. We must be godly role models at all times and provide others with hope and confidence for their future.

We ought to encourage our children and our children’s children to develop a personal relationship with the Lord, so that our families can be blessed for all generations to come. Even iniquitous, familial curses will be broken off of us by the Blood of Jesus Christ, if we are receptive to all the Lord’s healing promises. Our God wants nothing more than to deliver us from evil and set us free.

Psalm 91:14-16 “Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be] with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”

Almighty God knows His own children intimately. He is well aware of all that we require to be healthy, happy and live long, prosperous lives. He has our best interest at heart at all times, and there is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. If we sincerely love our heavenly Father and rely on Him for all that we need, He will never disappoint us or allow us to be ashamed.

Our God will never leave us or forsake us. He will be with us until the end of this world as we know it. He will answer all of our prayers and empower us to overcome all evil with good. He will make absolutely certain that we are spared His wrath and escape the tribulation that is coming on the wicked and rebellious. He will gather us to Himself for all of eternity in the Kingdom of God.

Very soon now, the Lord will come and take up residence with us, as He always intended. We will never be separated from our God ever again. He will change our mortal bodies that are subject to disease and death into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in His awesome presence. We will return to our roots in the Garden of Eden and dwell in a literal paradise on this earth.

 

 

Chapter 5 – Peace And Protection

Isaiah 54:14-15 “In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. Behold, they shall surely gather together, [but] not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.”

We have to establish one very important fact for all time. Our God is for us, and not against us in any way. His love, mercy and compassion for us are unlimited. If we accept His Son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior, we will be established in righteousness all the days of our lives. The Lord treats us as His own beloved children, and He feels an obligation to provide for us and protect us from all evil.

Whenever we have a need, we can rely on almighty God to meet it abundantly, according to His riches in glory. Our part is to pray and make our requests known, and to trust in Him for the solutions to all of our problems. We should never act in our own strength, or that could backfire on us. The Lord takes complete care of those who depend on Him totally and explicitly to satisfy all of their requirements.

Our Creator wants us to be in perfect peace at all times, regardless of our situations and circumstances. We need never fear or be anxious for anything. His promise is that He will deliver us from evil and protect us from all harm. If our enemies rise up against us, our God will be our vanguard and our rear guard in all of our battles. He will contend with those who contend with us, and defeat them for our sake.

The Lord will never leave us or forsake us, regardless of what comes at us. We will never be alone in any of our struggles. Almighty God sees everything that happens in our lives and rises up to defend us. It is not His desire that any man perishes for any reason. He has our well-being central to His plans. Very soon now, He will gather us to Himself and provide us with safety and security for all of eternity.

Galatians 1:3-4 “Grace [be] to you and peace from God the Father, and [from] our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:”

Jesus Christ came to this earth to rescue all of mankind and to supply us with everything that the Lord had intended from the very foundation of the world. He did not come to condemn us, but to save us from our sins and deliver us from all evil. Because of Him, we are righteous in God’s eyes; restored to our original right standing; and accepted as His very own beloved sons and daughters.

Our Lord and Savior overcame sin, death and the grave, so that we could also rule and reign in this life. He made an open show of Satan and all his cohorts and defeated them at the cross, so that we could have our dominion over the earth reinstated to us. We are more than conquerors through Christ; we can prevail over all things in this world, now, and in the Kingdom to come, for all eternity.

We have unmerited favor, or grace, with God in every area of our lives. If we serve the Lord and His people, as we are destined to do, we will be victorious in everything that we attempt on His behalf. He will assign ministering angels to assist us in all of our efforts. We will have divine power and authority granted to us, so we can operate through the Holy Spirit of almighty God Himself.

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.”

The Lord has a perfect plan for His people that encompasses our total well-being. He will provide us with deliverance from all of our enemies; peace in all of our situations and circumstances; and protection from all evil. He wants us to enjoy life in abundance to the overflow and to rest in Him, no matter what comes at us. We can rely on all of God’s promises to us, and have hope and confidence for our future.

Our God wants us totally dependent on Him, and not on the failing world system. He wants His people to be stress free and content with their lives. He has only our best interest at heart, and He is our full source for all that we require. Our heavenly Father takes pleasure in the peace and prosperity of His children and is always accessible to us. We can approach Him with every need and know that it will be met.

There is no good thing that we will ever lack, spiritual or temporal. The Lord will provide all our needs and shelter us from all adversity. He is only glorified when His people are radically blessed. He supplies abundantly more than we could ever imagine, so that we can also bless others. We will be the envy of those around us. Men will seek the Lord and embrace His ways, because of all He does for us.

Our God satisfies all of our present and future needs for peace and protection. If we believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, and all that He accomplished on our behalf, the windows of heaven are opened for us. We become His very own sons and daughters and He is diligent to deliver us from evil and shelter us from all harm. He fights our battles for us and gives us victory over all our situations and circumstances.

Ezekiel 37:26 “Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.”

Our God will make an everlasting covenant of peace with us. He will multiply and prosper His people that are called by His holy name. We will be “the head and not the tail,” victorious over all evil. We will lead others by godly example and gather in the full end-time harvest of souls that is required. We will make salvation to eternal life available to all those who are receptive to it.

Very soon now, there will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere. The Kingdom of almighty God will expand and advance until it covers the entire earth. It will absorb all earthly kingdoms and world governments, and offer peace and protection for all of God’s people. We will live in a literal paradise on this earth for all of eternity, as the Lord always intended for us to do.

Our heavenly Father will actually come and take up residence with His children in the Kingdom of God. He will dwell on His holy mountain outside the New Jerusalem. All flesh will worship Him in Spirit and in truth. We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts. There will never be a separation between God and mankind ever again.

Deliverance From Evil

2Peter 2:9 “The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:”

We have been given the opportunity of a lifetime. We need not perish for all of eternity as the ungodly will. We have redemption available to us through the merits of Jesus Christ. He came to this earth to specifically deliver us from the works of the devil and to supply us with life in abundance to the overflow. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from those who believe in Him.

If we pray and ask the Lord to deliver us from all evil – to include the temptation to sin – He will gladly assist us. He wants us to be especially aware of our righteousness through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. We need never feel condemned in any way. Jesus died to save us from all of our sins, past, present and future. There is nothing that we can do that is not covered by His precious Blood.

When we miss the mark, we can always repent from the heart, confess our sins and be restored to right standing with God immediately. If we maintain a close personal relationship with Him, He will keep us from all harm and strengthen us in the power of His might. Sin will no longer have as strong a hold on us. We will overcome all evil by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.

However, those who are deliberately rebellious and fail to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior are subject to His judgment. They have no excuse. Salvation is made readily available to every man, woman and child. All that we must do is repent of all our sins and embrace the truth. If we fail to do so, we will face never ending punishment for all of our transgressions in the unquenchable lake of fire.

Psalm 91:3-8 “Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, [and] from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; [nor] for the arrow [that] flieth by day; [Nor] for the pestilence [that] walketh in darkness; [nor] for the destruction [that] wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; [but] it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.”

Almighty God offers deliverance to each and every one of His children if they abide in “the secret place of the Most High.” If we maintain a close, personal relationship with Him, He will protect us from all evil and nurture us as only a father can. The Lord will crush Satan underneath our feet and keep us safe from destruction. We need not be afraid; He will cover us with His love and guard us from all of our enemies.

No wickedness will defile us in any way. We will be spared from its traps and strengthened until the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The truth will be our shield and our buckler; set us free for all time; and prevent our defeat, despite what may occur in the world around us. We will prevail in everything that we do and enjoy good success. The righteous will flourish, but the rebellious will perish in their iniquity.

We will see the fate of the wicked and enjoy eternal peace because we have trusted in our God. No disease and death will harm us. We will be secure in the midst of our battles and victorious in all of our situations and circumstances. Our future will be bright and promising and loaded with eternal benefits. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom in the presence of God.

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.”

When we make Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, we are born again in our spirit man. We become new creatures in Christ; the old man is dead and the new one is regenerated. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is gradually transformed until it becomes godly. The Lord strengthens us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we can become His fully mature sons and daughters.

There is no condemnation for those who are followers of Jesus Christ. We are righteous by our faith in Him alone, and not through any merits of our own. We take on a brand new nature as we imitate our Lord and Savior and walk in His ways. Sin no longer poses a stronghold in our lives. We can overcome the world, our flesh and the devil, because the “Greater One” actually dwells in us.

Christ’s followers will impact the fate of the entire earth in the days to come. Many souls will be rescued from death and destruction because of what we do. We will rise up in our divine destinies and share our faith so that they can be set free, just as we have been. Men, women and children from every race, tongue and nation of this world will be saved to eternal life as a result of our efforts.

We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all of the promises for righteousness. Peace and protection belong to us. We have legions of ministering angels that guard us from all harm and fend off every attack of the enemy. We have the Holy Spirit of God who leads and guides us. The Lord will preserve us until the return of Jesus Christ to set up His everlasting rule and reign in the Kingdom of God.

Matthew 6:13 “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

Believers are kings and priests of God, His very own sons and daughters who will take back this entire earth for Jesus Christ. The Kingdom of God is our legacy for righteousness and obedience. The Lord wants us to reign in this life, and in the Kingdom to come, for all of eternity. He will always lead and guide us, so that we grow and develop into all that we are destined to be.

We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. He defeated Satan and all of his minions once and for all time, and we can appropriate His very own strength in our spiritual journey. We have been given divine power and authority to walk like Christ walked on this earth. We can overcome all our personal tendencies towards evil, and experience total victory in every area of our lives.

All men will look to us as role models for righteousness and godliness. We will usher heaven into the earth in the Kingdom of God and bring peace, order and stability to all of our affairs. We will share our faith and set others free to receive the gift of eternal life. We will make salvation available to every man, woman, and child in every nation of this world, just as we were created to do.

Psalm 91:14-16 “Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be] with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”

It is the goodness of almighty God that leads men to repentance. He is ever merciful and compassionate to the human condition. It is not His desire that anyone perishes. He has been patient with all of mankind for thousands of years now. If we cry out to the Lord and seek forgiveness, He will always respond with His gentle love and kindness even though we may not really deserve it.

The Lord will preserve us from the justifiable wrath and corresponding punishment that is coming on this world for its wickedness and rebellion. He will make a way of escape for us in the critical days to come. We will be spared all of the tribulation that is facing the unrighteous. All that we need do is rely on God’s promises, and remain faithful despite what may transpire around us.

Almighty God will deliver us from anything that threatens us and give us peace and protection, simply because we love and trust Him. He will soon boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, and be appointed kings and priests to rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

We will enforce godly principles of fairness, equality and justice, and judge both men and angels. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will teach all men how to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We will worship our God in Spirit and in truth, and give Him thanks and praise for all the wonderful things that He has done.

The Lord Fights For Us

Joshua 23:8-11“But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day. For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but [as for] you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day. One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he [it is] that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you. Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God.”

When we make the Lord the focal point of our lives and trust in Him to supply all of our needs, He will never disappoint us. He has a father’s heart and His greatest desire is to provide for us and protect us from all harm. We are His beloved children and there is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. Peace and protection are only part of His wonderful promises to the believer. The Lord seeks to do only good to all those who truly love and rely on Him.

Our God sustains us in our times of trouble and personally defends us against any and all of our assailants. We are strengthened in the power of His might to withstand great attacks and overcome them. The Lord even assigns legions of avenging angels to fight for us and deliver our enemies into our hands. He will not ever tolerate wicked and rebellious individuals to be in control of His people. He will supernaturally intervene until all of our opponents are scattered.

In the critical days to come before Christ returns to this earth, we will be subject to increasing pressure from those in the world who choose evil over good. They will scorn, ridicule and malign us at best, and try to cause us all sorts of undue pain and suffering at worst. However, their attempts to persecute God’s children will all fail. The Lord will defend us against all forms of adversity, and cause us to be victorious over all those who would threaten our well being.

Jeremiah 1:19 “And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I [am] with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.”

If our God is for us, who can be against us? No man or devil will ever overpower and defeat God’s people. The Lord fights for us Himself, and we will succeed in winning every single battle – spiritual or temporal. Almighty God is our vanguard and our rear guard. He surrounds us with His divine power and authority, so that no enemy can penetrate His defenses.

Very soon now, Jesus Christ will return to this earth to set up His everlasting Kingdom. However, He is not coming as a meek and mild Lamb of God this time. He has vengeance in His heart to destroy the ungodly and all of their ungodliness. He will punish all those who have hurt His people in any way. He will vindicate our cause and settles all scores.

Nothing that is evil will ever enter into the Kingdom of God to harm or defile the righteous. Christ will banish Satan and all of his minions to the abyss, so that they no longer accuse or oppress us. He will judge all men and angels to determine whether they have done good or evil. He will cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire as their eternal fate.

The Lord will make certain that we have peace and protection, safety and security in the Kingdom of God. It will literally be paradise on this earth for all those who enter in. Wars, violence and conflict will all be things of the past. There will be no more exploitation or oppression of one man over another. All mankind will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.

2Samuel 22:3-4 “The God of my rock; in him will I trust: [he is] my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. I will call on the LORD, [who is] worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.”

We serve a great and awesome Lord. Although He is infinitely loving, merciful and compassionate, He is also a God of war when it comes to protecting His children. He will tolerate nothing to harm us in any way. He will defend us against all of our enemies and deliver us from those who oppress us. All that we need do is cry out to Him and then trust that He will always respond. He will never abandon us regardless of how strong and independent we think we may have become.

Almighty God will fight for us in each and every situation. We need never be afraid that we will be overcome by the wicked. The Lord looks down from the heavens and laughs at their pathetic attempts to injure His people. He is all powerful and just, and He will never leave us or forsake us in our time of trouble. He can and will destroy all evil that tries to come against us. He will obliterate those who are haughty and proud; the meek and humble will inherit the earth.

We can have genuine hope and confidence for our future. Very soon now, the Lord will gather all of the righteous to Himself in the Kingdom of God. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and vindicate us before both men and angels. The Lord, Jesus Christ, will cast Satan and all his minions into the bottomless pit, and banish all the wicked and rebellious to the unquenchable lake of fire forever more. We will have complete safety and security in His awesome presence.

Victory Over Our Enemies

Psalm 37:39-40 “But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.”

Our redemption from all sin and evil was bought and paid for at the cross. The Lord did not send Jesus Christ to this earth to condemn us, but to set us free of all oppression and bondage. Jesus defeated the works of the devil with His victory over sin, death and the grave. Then He rose again so that we could have eternal life and walk in His very own resurrection power.

Faith and trust are our best weapons in each and every battle that we face. We must believe that the Lord will never leave us or forsake us, regardless of how dark and dismal things might get in this world. He is our strength in times of trouble and our sure fortress. We will never experience abandonment; our God is our greatest advocate and He always intervenes on our behalf.

Jesus Christ will deliver His followers from anyone or anything that tries to attack us. He will make certain that we are left unscathed, safe and unharmed until He returns to us. We will overcome all wickedness and evil by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Trust in Jesus will never leave us ashamed. The Lord will always vindicate our cause and help us to prevail.

Our heavenly Father wants us to rise up in all the power and authority that has been given us as His children. We should take dominion over all evil and replace it with good. We will positively impact the entire world in the critical days to come. Peace, order and stability will be established on earth, just as it is in heaven. The Kingdom of God will be advanced everywhere.

Romans 16:20 “And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen.”

It is comforting to know that we do not have to fight our own battles. Whenever we encounter evil, the Lord brings us the victory. We have grace with almighty God – unmerited favor – in everything that we do. Whether we are combating men or devils, the Lord always rises up to defend His beloved children. We are preserved intact regardless of what we come up against.

Our heavenly Father assigns ministering angels to protect us in all our ways, and avenging angels to even up the score. The Lord also imbues us with His very own divine power and authority, so that we can take dominion over the enemy ourselves. He will soon crush Satan underneath our feet permanently, through the operation of the Holy Spirit that works in us and through us.

We will revolutionize this entire earth in the critical days to come. We will destroy demonic strongholds that attempt to impede our progress or interfere with our work. We will overcome all evil with good and bring peace, order and stability to all of our affairs. We will teach all mankind to dwell together as brothers and sisters, or be excluded from entry into the Kingdom of God.

Genesis 22:17 “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which [is] upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;”

Believers in Jesus Christ are direct heirs to the Abrahamic covenant that the Lord made thousands of years ago with our forefather. We are assured of peace and protection by its terms. It is promised that we will possess the gates of our enemies, and that no one will be able to take a stand against us and prevail. We need not fear anyone or anything; the Lord Himself will protect us.

Our children and our children’s children will all benefit from this agreement between faithful Abraham and almighty God. We will be multiplied like the stars of heaven, as numerous as the grains of sand on a sea shore. We will be a vast nation of godly people who rule and reign on this earth. Very soon now, there will be no more wars, violence and conflict anywhere in this world.

We will bring peace, order and stability to all of our interpersonal affairs. All men will relate as brothers and sisters or be banished forever more. The Lord will tolerate no strife and division in His people. We must walk in love and treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves. We will overcome all evil with good and advance the Kingdom of God on this earth, just as it is in heaven.

Very soon now, Jesus Christ will return as the King of kings and Lord of lords. He will be glorified in the people who are called by His awesome name. We will establish godly principles of fairness, equality and justice everywhere. All of mankind will be treated with dignity and respect. Our Lord and Savior will set up His everlasting rule and reign and appoint us to be kings and priests.

Deuteronomy 28:6-7 “Blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out. The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.”

Peace and protection are assured to us. Nothing will in any way harm us or prevent us from receiving all the promises of God. We have been given dominion over all things, and we can be victorious over all of our enemies in Jesus’ name. The Lord will smite them with His mighty hand and they will flee seven ways before us. We will be surprised at how easy it was to conquer them.

We will be blessed coming in and going out. All of our activities will lead to good success if we focus on our heavenly Father as the source of all our blessings. We can look forward to having all of our needs met in abundance. The Lord is ever generous to His people and eager to nurture and protect us any way He can. He delights in our dependence on Him and He will never let us down.

Believers are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ to the everlasting Kingdom of God. Very soon now, we will also share in His glory and judge both men and angels. The Lord will appoint us to be kings and priests of His people. We will teach others how to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We will enforce principles of fairness, equality and justice in the government of God.

Peace Is A Blessing

Psalm 29:11 “The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.”

If we have been baptized with the Holy Spirit of God, then peace will manifest in our lives as a fruit of the Holy Spirit. If we cultivate it, we will find ourselves strengthened and encouraged despite any adverse personal circumstances. We will be calm and stress free no matter what is going on around us. We will have hope and confidence for our future, regardless of how bleak things might appear.

We will always have supernatural peace available, if we trust in almighty God to provide for us and preserve us from harm. He will never leave us ashamed; He has covenanted with believers to be our source for all good things and our deliverer from evil. He has a father’s heart and He will always make a way for His children. We can expect to receive untold blessings with no downside whatsoever.

Should those around us ever threaten our welfare, the Lord will always intervene on our behalf. If the devil attempts to oppress us or hold us in bondage, our God will not fail to step in. He will defeat our enemies and establish us in safety and security. He will give His angels charge over us to protect us in all of our ways. We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil and rule and reign in this life.

Psalm 5:11-12 “But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as [with] a shield.”

Peace is more than just the absence of conflict; it is victory over adversity of all types. It is a feeling of contentment and well-being that comes straight from the Lord Himself. It is an inner knowing that all will be well – total confidence that almighty God is in control of even the minutest details of our lives. If we place our trust in Him, we will never be disappointed.

The Lord wants His people to be healthy, happy and free from fear, worry and stress. He doesn’t want us forever striving to meet our needs or to impress others with our accomplishments. If we fully surrender ourselves to Him, He will provide exactly what we require to keep us in perfect balance at all times. He will shower us with all spiritual and temporal blessings.

We have grace, or unmerited favor, with our heavenly Father. When He looks at us, He sees Jesus in all of His righteousness, and there is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. He will meet all of our needs in abundance. Our God will always be there for His children, regardless of what may transpire in the world around us. That will bring us peace, hope and joy.

It will enhance our sense of who we are in Him and bolster our self-esteem as nothing else can. We will realize that we are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness. We are actually seated with Him in heavenly places at the very right hand of almighty God Himself. We have divine protection and supernatural advantages over those who are in the world.

2Thessalonians 3:16 “Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord [be] with you all.”

There is nothing that can separate us from the love of God, now that we have made Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives. Our redemption is our ticket to never ending peace. We have received the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits. The Lord wants to bless us and keep us in all of our circumstances. He is not a distant God; He delights in the welfare of His people.

Whenever we have a need, we can approach the throne of grace without fear, shame or condemnation. Almighty God hears every prayer and moves heaven and earth to respond to our requests. He shares all the vast resources of the universe with us, so that we never lack for any good thing. We can be certain that He will intervene on our behalf no matter what we encounter.

We are never alone; we have a God that is eager to manifest Himself. He speaks to us in the night season and in the day of our worst trouble. He comforts us in times of sorrow and grief, and binds up all of our wounds. It is His earnest desire to bless us at all times and give us hope and confidence for our future. One day soon, He will gather us to Himself for all of eternity.

Numbers 6:24-26 “The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Almighty God is preparing to do something truly phenomenal for His people. He wants to rescue us from all the wickedness and evil that surround us, and give us permanent peace, order and stability in our lives. He is creating new heavens and a new earth right before our very eyes. It is His deepest desire to provide a safe haven for all of His children for all of eternity.

The Kingdom of God is our promised legacy for righteousness and obedience. The Lord wants to come and actually dwell with His people, as He always intended. It will be heaven on this earth for all those who enter in. We will have endless peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom in the very presence of our awesome God.

The Lord will be the focal point of our lives and we will be the center of His attention. He will continually make His face to shine upon us, so that we are no longer separated from Him in any way. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth and celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days, as He desires. We will give Him all the praise, honor and glory He deserves.

He, in turn, will give us all that we require to be healthy, happy and content forever more. There will be no more wars, violence and conflict anywhere. Poverty and lack will be abolished. Death and destruction will not come near us. We will dwell together as brothers and sisters, and share all the vast resources of the universe with one another as God plans and purposes.

Peace That Passes Understanding

Isaiah 26:3 “Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee.”

If we have a close personal relationship with our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, we will enjoy perfect peace at all times and under all situations and circumstances. Nothing will in any way trouble us or cause us undue concern. Our trust level will be such that we rely on the Lord for everything in our lives. We will never lack any good thing; the Lord will provide all that we require.

Almighty God will lead us and guide us by the operation of His Holy Spirit in all that we do. He will be our refuge in times of trouble and our source of wisdom in all perplexities. He will offer us the solution to all of our problems, whether they are spiritual or temporal. No matter what goes on around us, we will be stable and well-balanced. The Lord will keep us healthy, happy and content.

Peace is only one of the many blessings of God that is promised to us, but it is perhaps the most significant. In the critical days that lie ahead, we will have to embrace the supernatural peace of God that passes all understanding just to be able to survive in this world and maintain our sanity. Wickedness and evil will try to destroy us, but our peace will prevail and give us confidence for the future.

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Jesus Christ promised that we will have peace in the midst of turmoil and confusion if we abide in Him. He was faced with all sorts of trials and tribulations in this world, but He overcame them all. If we trust in Him and imitate His calm demeanor, we will be able to withstand tremendous mental, physical and emotional pressures. We will find that peace brings us the victory in all of our situations. If we remain serene, no matter what transpires, the Lord will be able to move in us and through us.

The Lord is infinitely merciful and compassionate to the human condition. He knows that we sometimes succumb to stress and anxiety. There is no need for us to ever buckle under the weight of our problems. We need not fear man or devil. The Lord will deliver us from all of our enemies and protect us from all harm. He will sustain us in all of our troubles and provide a means of escape from every dilemma. He will fight all of our battles for us and equip us to endure even the most adverse conditions.

If we stay focused on Him instead of our circumstances, almighty God will miraculously intervene in our affairs. He will not permit those who trust in Him to be ashamed. He is our source for all good things and our hope when the going gets rough. Our God will never leave us or forsake us. He is our shield and our buckler, a real refuge in times of trouble. It may not appear that He is moving on our behalf, but He is ever mindful of our needs and will be there for us until the end of this world as we know it.

Philippians 4:7-9 “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”

We have to do our part to develop and maintain our peace, sanity and composure in a troubled world that promises us anything but stability and comfort. We must purposely guard our minds and hearts from all defilement. We should concentrate only on what is pure, good and wholesome, and discipline ourselves to imitate Jesus Christ in everything that we think, say and do.

Our Lord and Savior never lost His perfect peace and serenity, despite what occurred around Him. He always looked to His heavenly Father for strength, wisdom and instruction, and He was totally victorious over all of His situations and circumstances. Jesus incurred tremendous resistance and intense pressure during His public ministry, yet He was able to cope with it all.

He was as human as we are, but He walked in divine power and authority. Christ was in full control over His environment. He purposely chose to operate in the Holy Spirit of God and defeated the devil for all time. He gave us back our dominion over all matters in this world, so that we could overcome anything that confronts us and be at peace regardless of what transpires.

A Covenant Of Peace

Proverbs 3:1-4 “My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.”

The Lord has established an eternal covenant of peace with His people. It is contingent on our faith in what we have been taught. He requires that we walk in His ways and keep all of His commandments. We should love others, as we love ourselves, and show mercy and compassion for one another. If we do, we will always be at peace with God and with one another.

Almighty God wants us to be able to find favor with Him and with man in everything that we say and do. We should pursue godly principles of fairness, equality and justice in all of our affairs, and treat others as we wish to be treated. It is important that we eliminate all strife and division in our personal relationships, so that we can live free of stress and conflict at all times.

If we pursue peace, it will be established unto us. It will bring order and stability to our lives and advance the Kingdom of God. We should challenge all world governments to reformulate their international and domestic policies, so that all men are treated with dignity and respect. If we are proactive in our approach, we will enjoy long life in days of heaven upon this earth.

Psalm 85:8-10 “I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly. Surely his salvation [is] nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed [each other].”

We must be tuned in to the Lord’s guidance and direction at all times, if we hope to have good success in all of our situations and circumstances. He always reveals His will to us if we seek His input. It is God’s express will that there be peace in all of our interpersonal relationships. He wants His people to be living examples of righteous and godliness in all our interactions.

Believers are to reflect the love, mercy and compassion of almighty God Himself to those who are still lost in darkness and deception. We should share our faith, so that others can receive the gift of eternal life with all its many benefits. We have divine destinies to embrace just as Jesus did on this earth. We will heal the sick and cast out demons as the Lord arranges our contacts.

We are holy saints, who have been given divine power and authority to establish peace, order and stability on this earth, just as it is in heaven. We should confront all wickedness and evil, and overcome it with good. We will tear down satanic strongholds that hold men in bondage to sin, and set them free in the truth. The entire world will be impacted through our efforts.

Fairness, equality and justice will soon be the norm. Everyone will be treated with dignity and respect. Social injustice and artificial class barriers will be abolished. We will eliminate all poverty and lack by persuading others to share their material resources with those who are less fortunate. All of mankind will be taught to dwell in love, peace and unity with one another.

Isaiah 54:10 “For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.”

In the critical days to come before Jesus Christ returns to us, there will be many dramatic changes that take place around us. All wickedness and evil will be exposed and confronted. The Lord will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming. He will take vengeance on all of His enemies, but His people will remain safe and protected from all harm.

He will spare us from His wrath and remember His perpetual covenant of peace with us. Our God will not abandon us, no matter what happens to the rest of mankind. His greatest desire is to gather His beloved children to Himself for all eternity in a literal paradise on this earth. The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all our prayers and the solution to all our problems.

If we have been loving and obedient, we can expect to receive never ending peace and prosperity. The Lord will actually come and dwell with us, and we will thrive in His awesome presence. He will change our mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in health and vitality. We will see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come.

Everlasting Peace In The Kingdom Of God

Leviticus 26:6-9 “And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make [you] afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.”

The Kingdom of God will not just fall on us; we have to forcibly seize it from those who are opposed to righteousness and godliness. The Lord will give us victory over all of our enemies and deliver us from all wickedness and evil. We will be imbued with divine power and authority to overcome all resistance. We will ultimately establish God’s way of doing things on this earth.

We are the actual sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. He will multiply us; establish His covenant with us; and give us good success in all that we do on His behalf. The Gospel will be preached throughout the entire world, until the full end-time harvest of souls is gathered in. Every man, woman and child will have an equal opportunity to be saved and baptized to eternal life.

The people of God will soon experience supernatural peace and abundant blessings. The Lord will remove all of our fear and anxiety from us. There will be no more pain and suffering, no wars and conflict, nor death and destruction. We will see all of creation restored to its original beauty and balance. There will be no bondage, oppression or exploitation that threaten us ever again.

Psalm 37:7-9 “Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.”

Wickedness and evil will not ever destroy mankind, no matter how dark and dismal things might become. The Lord has a perfect plan in place for our welfare. He will bring heaven itself to this earth, so that we can be fully restored to our original roots. There is no way that our heavenly Father will ever allow us to be harmed. He will spare us from the tribulation that is coming on all those who are of this world.

The unrepentant and rebellious will never see God or receive His many promises to us. They will be cast out of His Kingdom before they defile Him and His people. All evildoers will be cut off and banished to the unquenchable lake of fire, where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth forever more. Only those who are sincere believers will be blessed with the gift of eternal life and all of its many benefits.

We have to deliberately rest in the Lord and trust Him with all of our hearts to keep us safe and secure. He will take vengeance on all those who attempt to injure or exploit us in any way. If we maintain positive attitudes of hope and confidence, we will never be ashamed. When we wait patiently on Him, the Lord preserves us from all evil, and permits us to see our enemies defeated right before our own eyes.

Very soon now, we will inherit a paradise on this earth in the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God. The Lord will gather all of the righteous to Himself and actually come and dwell with us. He will boast of us to all of creation as His sons and daughters, and shower us with all of the resources that this universe has to offer. We will thrive in His presence, and give Him all the thanks, praise and honor He deserves.

Isaiah 32:17-18 “And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;”

Those who are righteous, loving and obedient will be preserved intact until the Lord, Jesus Christ returns to us to set up His everlasting Kingdom. We will be spared the wrath of almighty God that is coming on the ungodly. Our Savior will gather us to Himself forever more. He will change these perishable bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms like His very own.

 

 

Chapter 6 – Prosperity And Abundance

2Corinthians 8:9 “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”

Jesus Christ came to this earth to provide us with life in abundance to the overflow. Our redemption did not just include the forgiveness of sins and restoration to right standing with God. Jesus became poor, so that we might be made rich. He bore our infirmities, so that we could be made whole. The chastisement of our peace was upon Him, so that mankind could be at ease.

Our Lord and Savior did it all over two thousand years ago. He laid aside His deity and humbled Himself as a mere man. He became a curse for us, so that we could be blessed. He stripped Himself of all rights and privileges and became our servant. He loved us so much that He endured excruciating pain and laid down His own life, so that we could be spared the same fate.

All that we need do is believe in Christ and be obedient to all that He taught us, and we will live in heaven on this earth. The Lord will provide all of our needs and protect us from all harm. If we are righteous, loving and faithful, we will inherit His everlasting Kingdom and be appointed kings and priests of God. There is no good thing He will ever withhold from His people.

3John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Our heavenly Father looks at us and sees Jesus as the firstborn of many brethren. We have become joint-heirs with Him to all of the promises for righteousness to include eternal life, good health, peace and protection, wealth and abundance. The Lord regards us as His very own sons and daughters. His greatest wish is to lavish us with all spiritual and temporal blessings, as He has always intended.

Almighty God has a perfect plan for those who walk in His ways. He desires our well-being more than anything else. He wants us to prosper and be in perfect health at all times, and under all situations and circumstances. However, we cannot do this unless our souls prosper. Our minds, wills and emotions have to line up with the express will of God, so that we can be blessed in every area of our lives.

The Lord will bless us beyond our wildest imaginings if we put our trust in Him. He has all the vast resources of the universe at His disposal and He is never stingy in meeting our needs. He wants to provide for us and give us our heart’s desires. If we rely on Him and all of His promises, we will never be ashamed. Our God will shower us with all spiritual and temporal advantages forever more.

We must remember who we are at all times and the price that was paid on our behalf. We cannot ever stray from the path of righteousness and hope to prosper and succeed in our lives. Followers of Jesus Christ must learn to imitate our Lord and Savior. We should obey all of the commandments and walk in love, so that we can inherit all that has been prepared for us from the very foundation of the world.

Job 36:11 “If they obey and serve [him], they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.”

As believers in the Lord, Jesus Christ, we have divine destinies to fulfill that will impact the fate of all of mankind. We have been commissioned to serve others as Jesus did while He was in this world. We must establish the Kingdom of God and His saints on the earth, just as it is in heaven. That requires that we be obedient to do all that the Lord asks of us in the days to come.

We should share our faith with all those who are still lost in darkness and deception, so that they can be set free. We should establish godly principles of fairness, equality and justice in all of our affairs. We should work to abolish poverty and lack and make certain that all men are treated with dignity and respect. It is critical that we treat others, as we ourselves wish to be treated.

There are generous rewards available to all those who walk in their divine destinies. Almighty God will provide all of our needs in abundance and protect us from all harm. He will defend us against our enemies, and give us total peace and victory in all of our endeavors. If we remain faithful to Him, we will reign in this life, now, and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity.

Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.”

The Lord will lavish us with His blessings. There is no good thing that we will ever lack – spiritual or temporal. He will share all of the vast resources of the universe with us. We will become clearinghouses for His wealth and abundance, so that the needs of all mankind are met through our generosity. We will eliminate all poverty and lack by sharing our means with those who are less fortunate.

Prosperity will overtake us and be extended to our children and our children’s children for all generations to come. We will have success beyond measure, and possess the gates of all our enemies. Almighty God will covenant with His people to provide them with good health and longevity. We will even be appointed as kings and priests of God, and through us, all the nations of the world will be blessed.

The Lord will demonstrate His deep abiding love, mercy and compassion for His people for all eyes to see. He will restore all that has been taken from us and vindicate us before both men and angels. We will rule and reign with Jesus Christ and have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will dwell in the awesome presence of God Himself in a literal paradise for all of eternity.

The everlasting Kingdom of God will be our legacy for righteousness and obedience. Jesus Christ will boast of us to all of creation, and we will rule and reign with Him for all time. We will teach all of mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity, and to share all that has been given to us with others. All men will eventually be righteous and worship almighty God in Spirit and in truth as He desires.

The Source Of All Wealth

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.”

Almighty God created man for His distinct pleasure. His original plan was to provide all that was needed for him to sustain life, so that Adam would be free to fellowship with Him at any time. The Lord delighted in their relationship and He walked with the first man in the cool of the evening, the Bible tells us. Our Creator wanted nothing more than man’s continual companionship.

However, Adam failed to keep the Lord as his primary focus of attention. He was seduced by the wiles of his mate, and he became prey to the temptation of the devil. He transgressed the Lord’s command which forbade him to eat of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. He rebelled against God’s authority and was subjected to spiritual and physical death instead.

The Lord always intended for His beloved children to live in abundance and prosperity. He owns all the vast resources of this universe, and He is eager to share them with those who walk in His ways. However, our prosperity is contingent on our obedience. We must seek the Lord first, and be redeemed from sin and generational iniquity. It is only through faith that we are made rich.

Jesus Christ came to this earth to save all mankind from their sins, and to provide us with life in abundance to the overflow. If we believe in Him and accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior, all things become new for us. We are no longer victims of the world system that requires specific performance to obtain good success. We are heirs to all of the promises of God for righteousness.

Deuteronomy 8:18 “But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for [it is] he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as [it is] this day.

It is almighty God who gives us the power to get wealth. He endows us with skills and talents that make us desirable in the marketplace. His people shine with His light and the entire world sees that we are different. We are extraordinarily gifted and prosper in everything that we do. Whenever we get involved with an endeavor, it always succeeds because of the perpetual blessing that is on our lives.

As long as we put God first and keep our prosperity in perspective, we will continue to be victorious in all of our undertakings. We must be generous with the gifts that we are given and share them with those who are less fortunate. In the days to come, the wealth of the wicked will be supernaturally transferred to the righteous. We will become clearinghouses for all the vast resources of the universe.

With divine privilege comes a corresponding responsibility. We must be merciful and compassionate to the needs of others, and make certain that we do all that we can to abolish poverty and lack. We will only advance the Kingdom of God on this earth by establishing godly principles of fairness, equality and justice in all of our affairs. We must always treat others as we ourselves wish to be treated.

We should confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good. We have been given great and wonderful promises as the sons and daughters of almighty God. The Lord has showered us with all spiritual and temporal advantages, but they are contingent upon our being faithful with what we are given. We must share everything that we have with those who are less fortunate than we are.

Psalm 112:1-3 “Praise ye the LORD. Blessed [is] the man [that] feareth the LORD, [that] delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches [shall be] in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.”

If we put God first, He will supply all of our needs in abundance. We must show Him deference and respect, and be obedient to do whatever He asks of us. If we do, there is no good thing that we will ever lack. He will meet all of our temporal and spiritual requirements, even before we ask Him. He is always generous to those who love and trust Him as their source.

The Lord delights in our overall well-being. He has great plans for our lives that include tangible benefits. He will bless us with good health and longevity. He will deliver us from all evil and take vengeance on our enemies. He will bless our offspring for all generations to come. Wealth and riches will be given to us, so that all of mankind will be in awe at the goodness of God.

We will be the envy of all those who are still caught up in the world system. Others will be eager to have what we have, and we will be in a prime position to share our faith with them. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and make redemption available to all those who are receptive. Men will be saved in record numbers and become heirs to all God’s promises.

Righteousness brings distinct advantages with it. Not only are we forgiven of all our sins, but we become the sons and daughters of God, as well. Our right standing with Him is restored and He is free to bless us as He always intended. We can have hope and confidence for our future. One day very soon, He will even gather us to Himself for all eternity in the Kingdom of God.

The Promise Of Prosperity

Ecclesiastes 5:19 “Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this [is] the gift of God.”

Our heavenly Father sent His very own Son to this earth to redeem us in every area of our lives. Jesus did not come to condemn us, but to save us from our sins and to release us from the curse that our rebellion brought on us. He, who was without sin of any kind, took on all of our transgressions and generational iniquity at the cross, so that we could be made the righteousness of almighty God.

Christ bore all of our infirmities and carried our diseases in His very own flesh, so that we could be healthy and well. He was the chastisement for our peace, so that we could live free of stress and anxiety. Jesus became poor and disenfranchised, so that we could be made rich. He defeated all the works of the devil, so that we could have dominion over the entire earth restored to mankind.

We now have grace, or unmerited favor, with God – simply because we believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, and all that He accomplished on our behalf. Our righteousness is secure, and we are entitled to receive all of His promises to us. Prosperity, wealth and abundance are tangible demonstrations of God’s pleasure with His people. His deepest desire is to provide everything we need in abundance.

The ability to work and obtain wages to meet our temporal needs is a gift of God. He wants us to always be engaged in worthwhile pursuits and amply rewarded for our efforts. He endows us with special skills and talents, so that we are in demand by our peers and able to sustain our earthly lifestyles. He also intends that we have a surplus, so that we can share with others who are in need.

Deuteronomy 15:6 “For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.”

The Lord delights in the prosperity of His people. It glorifies Him when we are satisfied in every area of our lives, and blessed so that we can also be a blessing to others. He wants us to live debt free and lend to others but refrain from borrowing ourselves. He knows that if we owe others anything, we are actually in bondage to them and He wants to spare us from that plight.

Our heavenly Father will supply all that we need; we do not have to fend for ourselves or trust in the world system. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and nothing is impossible to Him. He can meet the needs of all of mankind in abundance to the overflow and never experience a deficit. The Creator of the universe stands ready to sustain His beloved children to perfection.

The wealth of the wicked is being stored up for the righteous, and very soon now, the Lord will intervene in the affairs of men. He will make His people clearinghouses for all the vast resources that this universe has to offer mankind. He wants us to share everything we are given with those who are less fortunate. We will eliminate poverty and lack even before Christ returns to us.

All the nations of the world will be blessed as a result of the promises that the Lord makes to us. We will rule and reign over them as godly leaders, but they will not prevail against us. We will teach all men how to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. The blessings of Abraham will descend on us and overtake us, just as the Lord has promised us that they will.

2Corinthians 9:8 “And God [is] able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all [things], may abound to every good work:”

It is amazing when you realize that all true prosperity begins with a quality decision to make Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives. Unless we have entered into a personal covenant with our God, He is under no obligation to bless us. However, when we commit ourselves to Him, He is ever generous in meeting all of our needs in return. He has a father’s heart; He wants to provide for His children.

Almighty God is always loving and kind. He wants what is best for us. He knows that prosperity and abundance will make us happy and alleviate our stress. However, we cannot make riches our primary goal in life. We need to be well-balanced. The Lord wants us to prosper, even as our souls prosper. Our minds have to be renewed in the truth, and our wills and emotions have to be disciplined.

We should imitate our Lord and Savior and be righteous role models at all times. If we show ourselves to be faithful in the small things, the Lord can entrust us with great wealth and riches. We are blessed so that we can have all of our needs met, and also be a blessing to others. Selfishness and greed will not benefit us in the long run. We must share what we have been given with those less fortunate.

There are many who are still lost in sin and darkness, defeated by the world system that cares nothing for their welfare. We should offer the abundant life that is available through Jesus Christ to every race, tongue and nation of this world. When they see our prosperity, they will be eager for the truth. Their people will also be entitled to receive all of the promises of God for righteousness and obedience.

All Needs Met

Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

The Lord wants us totally dependent on Him for everything that we might ever need. He supplies what we require to be happy, healthy and content. He is our source for all good things – spiritual and temporal. He leads and guides us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we can be successful in all that we do. He presents us with opportunities to excel in every endeavor.

Almighty God takes an active interest in even the minutest details of our lives. He provides us with food, clothing and shelter, so that we never lack for any good thing. He gives us wealth to procure all that we need to be satisfied. He even gives us an abundance to share with others in their need. The Lord assists us with our work, relationships and in planning for our future.

He is our protection from all of our enemies and our peace that passes understanding when the going gets tough. He helps us solve all of our problems and keeps us healthy and strong. He even renews our youth and gives us longevity. Our God takes care of all that we might ever require in this life, and He proposes to gather us to Himself for all eternity in the Kingdom of God.

Proverbs 22:4 “By humility [and] the fear of the LORD [are] riches, and honour, and life.”

If we do our part, the Lord will always honor His covenant promises to us. We should remain meek and humble in His presence, and show Him all the deference and respect that He deserves. We must always maintain a reverent fear of the Lord if we hope to be blessed. If we are wicked, defiant and rebellious, He is under no obligation to provide for us in any way.

Our God exalts those who give Him preeminence in their lives. He boasts of us as His very own sons and daughters. He gives us riches, honor and long life, if we make Him the focal point in all of our affairs. We are the center of His attention and He blesses us in abundance for our faithfulness to Him. There is nothing that we can do that will ever escape His observation.

The Lord will meet all of our requests, even before we ask Him. He always does “exceeding abundantly” more than we could ever ask or think. He lavishes us with blessings of all types and shares all the vast resources of the universe with us. There is no good thing that our Lord will ever withhold from His people. He even has plans to bring heaven itself to this earth.

Isaiah 45:2-3 “I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call [thee] by thy name, [am] the God of Israel.”

Almighty God goes before us in all of our endeavors. He is our vanguard and our rear guard. He gives His angels charge over us to protect us in all of our ways. He makes the crooked ways straight and defines our path, so that we have good success in everything we attempt. He has divine destinies for us as His beloved children; we will take back this entire earth for Jesus Christ.

As believers, we will share our faith with those who are still in darkness and deception. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to every nation of the world, and baptize countless souls to eternal life with all its many benefits. We will heal the sick of all their diseases; cast out demons that hold others in bondage; and even raise the dead by the operation of the Holy Spirit of God.

We will establish God’s way of doing things on earth, just as it is in heaven, and usher in the Kingdom of God. We will overcome all evil with good, and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Christ as their King. We will defeat Satan and all his minions and establish peace, order and stability in all of our affairs. We will share in a rich, eternal inheritance for all of our efforts.

Rewards For Faithfulness

Psalm 128:1-2 “Blessed [is] every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy [shalt] thou [be], and [it shall be] well with thee.”

Almighty God is not distant and removed from our lives. He considers us to be His very own beloved children. He has a father’s heart and wants to nurture and protect us. He takes an active interest in all that we are involved in. He never leaves us or forsakes us in times of trouble. He wants to be our total source for all that we require to be healthy, happy and prosperous.

If we seek the Lord and His Kingdom first, then everything else will be added to us. We must show Him the proper respect and defer to His way of doing things. He knows what is best for us. He will lead and guide us, so that we always have good success in all that we undertake. He will provide the answers to all of our problems and the solutions to all of our perplexities.

The Lord wants us to walk in total dominion, as He intended from the very foundation of the world. He expects us to subdue the earth, be fruitful and multiply. We should be masters of all that we attempt to do. The work that we perform is our seed for future blessings and rewards. We will eat the labor of our very own hands and be content and peaceful in everything we do.

Proverbs 8:17-21 “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour [are] with me; [yea], durable riches and righteousness. My fruit [is] better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.”

We will have innumerable blessings and generous rewards for our faithful service to almighty God. We will enjoy a close, intimate relationship with our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. The Lord will lead us and guide us in all of our ways and give us His wisdom in all of our situations and circumstances. We will experience supernatural favor with both God and man.

The Lord will bless us with durable riches, righteousness and honor. He will make certain that we are placed in key positions in this world and in His Kingdom. Men will look up to us and respect us for who we are and the God we represent. We will be heirs of substance and blessed financially, so that we never lack the material means to meet our needs and those of others.

When Christ returns, He will share His very own honor and glory with us. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will judge both men and angels, and be appointed kings and priests of God. We will enforce Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality and teach all of mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.

Mark 10:29-30 “And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.”

We have received a divine commission from the Lord, Jesus Christ, Himself. He wants us to resume His ministry on this earth and usher in His everlasting Kingdom before He returns to us. We have eternal callings and divine destinies to fulfill. That will require some sacrifice on our behalf. We have to put almighty God first and serve Him in any capacity that He directs.

The Lord may have us preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every race, tongue and nation. We could baptize countless souls to eternal life, as a result. We might be asked to lay hands on the sick and heal them of all their diseases. Perhaps we will cast our demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil of all kinds. We may even be directed to raise the dead back to life once again.

Regardless of what the Lord asks us to do, there are generous rewards that He has in store for those of us who are faithful. We will be blessed in abundance, now, and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity. He will boast of us as His sons and daughters, and appoint us to be kings and priests. We will have the heathen for our inheritance, and be just rulers and capable judges.

Deuteronomy 6:17-19 “Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee. And thou shalt do [that which is] right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD hath spoken.”

If we are diligent to do all that the Lord asks of us, He will exalt us in due season. We are heirs to the Kingdom of God and all of its many benefits. We will defeat all of our enemies and go in to possess the land. We will judge both men and angels, and teach mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We will even rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

We will witness Jesus Christ banish Satan and all of his minions to the bottomless pit. He will make very certain that all wrongdoers are dealt with and cast into the unquenchable lake of fire. We will enforce Kingdom principles of fairness, equality and justice, and provide safety and security for all God’s people. Nothing that harms or defiles them will ever enter into the Kingdom of almighty God.

The Kingdom will literally be heaven on this earth for all the righteous. It will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all our problems. We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden, and life will be idyllic for us. The Lord will meet all our needs in abundance, even before we ask. We will have peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His awesome presence.

Eternal Blessings

Psalm 24:3-5 “Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”

Almighty God will soon come and take up residence with His people in the Kingdom of God. If we are righteous, obedient and pure in heart, we will ascend His holy mountain in the New Jerusalem and worship Him there. He will bless us beyond belief with all spiritual and temporal advantages. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from His beloved children.

The Kingdom of almighty God will be heaven on this earth for all those who are deemed worthy to enter into it. If we are believers in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and trust His provision we will never be disappointed. He will change these mortal bodies that are subject to disease and death into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever. He will execute vengeance on all of our enemies.

The Lord will meet all of our spiritual and temporal needs, even before we ask Him. He will make certain that we are always healthy, happy and prosperous. We will dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We will grow crops for our food and live in beautiful homes that house our large families. Even our offspring will be blessed for all the many generations to come.

Deuteronomy 4:40 “Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong [thy] days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.”

Our children and our children’s children will all share in our legacy for righteousness and obedience. They will be blessed for all of eternity in a literal paradise on this earth. There will be no more wars, violence or conflict. We will never experience pain and suffering ever again. Peace and prosperity will overtake us. Poverty and lack will be things of the past. Death and destruction will not come near us.

This world will never end, but it will line up with the will of God. His people will thrive for all of eternity and bask in His glorious presence. 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. We will dwell with both men and angels and never lack for any good thing. All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful.

There will be no more night and day, no change of seasons. The glory of the Lord will be our eternal light. All pollution and natural disasters will be abolished for all time. The climate will always be temperate and predictable, with warm breezes and plenty of moisture. The plants and animals will be in total harmony with one another and subject to man once again, just as they were in the Garden of Eden.

1Samuel 25:6 “And thus shall ye say to him that liveth [in prosperity], Peace [be] both to thee, and peace [be] to thine house, and peace [be] unto all that thou hast.”

The Kingdom of God will be idyllic – the perfect habitat for both God and man. We will have peace and prosperity in abundance. The Lord will protect us from anything that might harm or defile us. We will have safety and security in His awesome presence. We will be reunited with all of our lost loved ones and see our offspring for all the generations to come.

There will be no more wars, violence and conflict anywhere. Death and destruction will never come near us ever again. Natural disasters will be things of the past. Strife and division, poverty and lack, oppression and exploitation will all be eliminated from the Kingdom of God. It will literally be heaven on this earth for all those who are found worthy to enter into it.

Jesus Christ will be our righteous King for all of eternity. Those who have been faithful to serve Him and His people will be honored and glorified together with Him. We will be appointed kings and priests of God. We will judge both men and angels, and enforce Kingdom principles of fairness, equality and justice in the government of almighty God on this earth.

 

 

Chapter 7 – Power And Dominion

Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

Man was created in the very image and likeness of almighty God to take charge over all things on this earth. However, he surrendered that right to Satan in the Garden of Eden. When Adam transgressed the Lord’s command not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, he relinquished all the power and authority that he had once been given to the enemy of his soul.

Satan then became the god of this world, and he exercised that right for thousands of years. It is only since Jesus Christ came to this earth that the circumstances have changed. Jesus defeated all powers and principalities and made an open show of the devil at the cross. Our Lord and Savior stripped him of all his power, and gave dominion back to those who believe in His name.

We have our divine birthright returned to us. We can now exercise all of our God-given power and authority once again. The enemy has no right to control and overcome us, unless we give it to him. If we are ignorant of our rights as the sons and daughters of God, we will have a very difficult fight on our hands. Once we realize who we are and what belongs to us, we will prevail.

Psalm 8:4-6 “What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all [things] under his feet:”

We are blessed to have been visited by God Himself in the person of Jesus Christ. Not only did He come to this world to redeem us of all of our sins, but also to bring us life in abundance to the overflow. Jesus did not come to condemn us, but to restore all things to what they were at the beginning. He reinstated all of our privileges as the children of God and returned all of our rights to us.

Believers are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God for righteousness. The Lord no longer looks on our sins and imputes guilt and condemnation to us. We are now seated with Christ in heavenly places at the very right hand of God Himself. We have Blood-bought privileges as the followers of Christ. We have dominion over the entire earth and we must learn to operate in full power.

In the critical days that lie ahead before Jesus Christ returns, the Lord will reveal Himself more and more to us. He will show us exactly what our role is in His eternal redemption plan. We have many blessings available to us, but corresponding responsibilities, as well. We must share our faith with all those who are still lost in darkness and deception and set them free just as we have been.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with power and conviction and baptize countless numbers of souls in Jesus’ mighty name. We will make the gift of eternal life available to every man, woman and child in every nation of the world. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions; cast out demons that hold others in bondage; and even raise the dead back to life once again.

2Timothy 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

There is no way that we will be deterred or detained from embracing our divine destinies and serving the Lord and His people. We will overcome all demonic strongholds that get in our way and defeat the devil once and for all time. We will overcome him by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Our words that line up with those of almighty God will be powerful in destroying all evil.

We will glorify our God in all that we say and do, and rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing. We will do the works of Jesus Christ, and even greater works, since He has now returned to the Father. We will take the Kingdom of God by force and seize all that the enemy has stolen from us over the years. We will bring peace, order and stability to our lives, as the Lord plans and purposes for His people.

The sons and daughters of almighty God will help to bring heaven itself to this earth, as we are called to do. We will hear all that the Lord commands us to do, and execute it to perfection. Jesus will assign legions of ministering angels to back us up and we will be successful in all that we do on His behalf. The entire world will be impacted through our efforts, and we will prepare mankind to greet Christ as King.

Isaiah 60:21-22 “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. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.”

We have divine destinies as the sons and daughters of almighty God. We were created for such a time as this for a specific purpose that transcends all eternity. We are co-laborers with the Lord in ushering in His Kingdom. Heaven itself will be brought to this earth realm through our efforts. We will set all matters straight on this planet and establish God’s way of doing things, so that all mankind benefits.

The people of God will shine with His light and take back this earth for the Lord, Jesus Christ. He will be glorified in us and show Himself strong on our behalf. Nothing will be impossible to us as we operate in the power of His Holy Spirit. We will make salvation available to every race, tongue and nation of this world. Men’s hearts will be changed or they will be condemned to never ending punishment.

Very soon now, the righteous will inherit the earth in the Kingdom of God. We will rise up in all the divine power and authority that belongs to us and bring peace, order and stability to all of our affairs. There will be no more strife and division, death and destruction, no poverty and lack. All men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect, and share all the vast resources of this universe with one another.

We will dwell together as brothers and sisters in love and unity, and all men will know the Lord. His laws will be forever written in our minds and hearts. Jesus Christ will return to us as our glorious, benevolent King and we will thrive in His awesome presence. He will appoint us to be kings and priests. We will help Him judge both men and angels, and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of this world.

The Source Of All Power

Psalm 27:1 “The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

The Lord is the strength of our lives and our salvation in times of trouble. There is nothing and no one that we should ever fear. He holds His people up with His very own right hand, and He sustains us through everything that we encounter. Our God always fights our battles for us, so that no enemy can defeat us. He even provides us with legions of angels to minister on our behalf, so that we are totally victorious.

Almighty God is our source for all good things. He is our light in all the darkness that surrounds us. He provides us with wisdom and revelation, so that we can solve even the most complex problems. He gives awesome power and authority to His people, so that we prevail in everything that we attempt. There is no obstacle that will ever stop us from ruling and reigning in this world, as we have been ordained to do.

We are the mature sons and daughters of God who will represent Him to the entire human race in the days ahead. Our heavenly Father rejoices in the fact that we will rise up in our divine destinies and embrace our callings, so that we can take back this earth for the Kingdom of God. He wants us to demonstrate His glory for all eyes to see, so that heaven itself can be brought here as He has planned from the beginning.

2Corinthians 4:6-7 “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. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”

Believers in the Lord, Jesus Christ, have the power and glory of God available to them at all times. We need never be afraid, or walk in defeat for any reason. We are blessed to be able to prevail in everything that we do. We will take back this entire earth for our Lord and Savior. We have been given His very own divine authority on this earth and we must learn to exercise it to the fullest.

Many will envy us and want what we have been given. We will have the perfect opportunity to share our faith and make salvation available to every man, woman and child. If they believe in Jesus Christ and all that He accomplished on our behalf, they will be saved to eternal life with all of its many benefits. We will rescue countless numbers of souls in the end-time harvest, just as we were.

The Lord will work through us to impact the fate of the entire human race. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God in genuine power, and destroy all the works of darkness. We will heal the sick of all their diseases; cast out demons in Jesus’ mighty name; and even raise the dead back to life again through the operation of the Holy Spirit of God that is at work in us and through us.

We will restore nature to its original beauty and balance as it was in the Garden of Eden. We will take control over all of creation and make certain that the plants and animals are in perfect harmony. There will be no more natural disasters that cause devastation to man and beast. We will reverse the effects of all pollution and even regulate the climate so that it is temperate and predictable.

Romans 13:1-2 “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.”

Almighty God will consummate His eternal redemption plan through the people who are called by His holy name. He is all powerful and the ultimate authority both in heaven and on earth. Those who defy Him and rebel against those whom He delegates on His behalf will ultimately be defeated. He will not permit His anointed ones to be moved. We will represent His interests to all of mankind.

We will confront all human governments and challenge them to adopt godly principles in dealing with others. We will bring peace, order and stability to our lives once and for all. There will be no more wars, conflict or social injustice of any kind. All human beings will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect. We will all learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters, as the Lord desires.

Those who cause strife and division in our midst and create chaos and conflict in our relationships will be condemned to eternal punishment. The Lord will not tolerate rebellion in any of His people. He will banish the wicked and lawless to the unquenchable lake of fire. Only those who are uncompromisingly righteous, loving and obedient will inherit His everlasting Kingdom on this earth.

Ephesians 6:10-13 “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]. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

We ought to be strong in the power of God’s might and be very careful how we wield His authority. We have been given a sacred charge. We are His ambassadors in this world and all men are looking to us to be godly role models. We have to take a firm stand against wickedness and evil of all kinds and overcome it with good. Our role is to bring God’s way of doing things to this earth.

Believers will destroy all the works of darkness in the critical days to come before Jesus Christ returns to us. We will tear down demonic strongholds that impede our progress or interfere with our work. We will establish the government of almighty God and enforce principles of righteousness and justice in all of our affairs, so that heaven itself can be brought here in the Kingdom of God.

All world governments will be challenged to realign their policies with Kingdom standards. War, violence and conflict will eventually cease. We will bring peace, order and stability to all of our affairs. Poverty and lack will be eliminated once and for all. There will be no more artificial barriers that separate us from one another. Everyone will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.

Very soon now, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will return to this earth to receive eternal rewards for all that He has accomplished. He will be pleased with all our efforts on His behalf, and share His very own honor and glory with His followers. He will appoint us to be kings and priests of God. We will judge both men and angels, and rule and reign with Him over all nations of the world.

Supernatural Strength And Power

Psalm 68:35 “O God, [thou art] terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel [is] he that giveth strength and power unto [his] people. Blessed [be] God.”

We serve a great and awesome God. He is omnipotent, and His people reflect His very own strength and power. There is nothing that will interfere with our mission to usher in His everlasting Kingdom to this earth. We have been given divine authority to establish the government of God and His justice system. He will set matters straight through those of us who are called by His holy name.

All world leaders will be confronted to make certain that they employ godly principles in dealing with their constituents. The Lord will no longer tolerate oppression or exploitation in our midst. He desires that all men learn to dwell in love and unity with one another as brothers and sisters. We will bring peace, order and stability to this earth, even before Christ returns to receive His Kingdom.

The children of God will take control of the natural world, as well. We will speak to all creation and make certain that the plants and animals are in harmony with one another and subject to our dominion, as they once were in the Garden of Eden. Even the climate will be regulated, so that it is always temperate and predictable. There will be no more pollution or natural catastrophes ever again.

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.”

We will not weary in well doing, despite the resistance that we might encounter in the critical days that lie ahead. The Lord is the strength of our lives and He will imbue us with supernatural abilities and great endurance, so that we can succeed in all that we attempt to do. If we seek His guidance and direction, we will be able to impact the future of the entire human race.

We will serve as His ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and draw all men to Him, so that none perish for lack of knowledge. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and authority to every race, tongue and nation in this world and see many souls saved as a result. We will baptize all those who are receptive, so that they can receive the gift of eternal life.

We will fulfill our divine commission and heal all those who are afflicted with disease in any way. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk just, as they did when Jesus Christ ministered to them. We will cast out demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil, and even raise the dead back to life once again through the power of the Holy Spirit of God.

2Samuel 22:33-38 “God [is] my strength [and] power: and he maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds' [feet]: and setteth me upon my high places. He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great. Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip. I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.”

The sons and daughters of almighty God will reach the full stature of Jesus Christ and do the works that He did on this earth, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with the Father. We will be able to read men’s minds and hearts and minister healing to them in their spirits and emotions. We will break all their generational curses off of them, so that they can be set free.

We will tear down all demonic strongholds that interfere with our work or impede our progress. We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil as the Lord intends. We will establish His way of doing things on the earth, as it is in heaven. Nothing will be impossible to us. Our words that line up with those of God will revolutionize this entire planet as they are destined to do.

The Lord will work through us to restore all things back to their original state, as they were in the Garden of Eden. His Kingdom will manifest and be advanced all over this world even before Christ returns to us. There will be peace, order and stability in all of our affairs. Wars and conflict will not be named among us. Poverty and lack will disappear and all our needs will be met.

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Believers will not relent until God’s ways are established as the norm. All of mankind will be given an equal opportunity to hear the truth that sets them free. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ that destroys burdens and removes yokes of bondage. We will make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child on the face of this earth.

We will demonstrate the infinite mercy, love and compassion that almighty God Himself has for His people. We will heal the sick of all their diseases and cast out demons that hold them captive to sin and evil. We will even be able to raise the dead back to life once again through the awesome power of the Holy Spirit of God that manifests in us and through us.

Christ alone will be glorified and we will usher in His Kingdom for all eyes to see. Men will either choose righteousness, love and obedience as a way of life or be condemned to everlasting punishment. There will be no more death and destruction, exploitation or oppression of one human being over another. Peace, order and stability will prevail in all of our affairs.

Jesus Delegated His Power

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.”

Almighty God is the source of all power in the universe and He anointed His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to exercise that on His behalf. Jesus was God made man for our express benefit, and He came to this earth to redeem all of mankind from their bondage to sin and evil. He suffered and died to atone for all of our sins and He conquered sin, death and the grave in the process.

Christ was given all authority both in heaven and on this earth, and He delegated that very same power to those of us who believe in His name. We are no longer stripped of our strength; we have been given dominion over the entire earth. We can walk in Jesus’ name and be assured that all the powers of hell will be defeated, as we endeavor to serve Him and His people.

The followers of Jesus Christ will establish His way of doing things on earth, as it is in heaven. We will teach all men to dwell in love, peace and unity with one another. We will abolish war and conflict; eradicate poverty and lack; defeat death and destruction. We will enforce godly principles of fairness and justice, so that all men are treated with dignity and respect.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom and set mankind free in the truth for all time. We will heal them of all their afflictions and release them from their bondage to sin. All those who are receptive will receive the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits, and be able to enter into a literal paradise. Very soon now, we will dwell in the awesome presence of God.

John 1:12 “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:”

Christ has given us the privilege of becoming the actual sons and daughters of almighty God through our faith in Him. He has restored us to right standing with our Creator. We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness. We are seated with Him in heavenly place in the very throne room of God. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us.

We have been blessed with all spiritual and temporal advantages. The Lord provides for us and protects us from all harm. He heals all of our diseases and delivers us from evil. We have all needs met in abundance, even before we ask Him. He imbues us with His very own divine power and authority, so that we are totally victorious in all that we attempt to do on His behalf.

In the critical days that lie ahead, we will confront all wickedness and evil that we see and overcome it with good. We will set men free to eternal life by preaching the Gospel to all the nations of the world. We will baptize countless numbers of souls in the end-time harvest and usher heaven itself into the earth realm. We will glorify our God and establish His everlasting Kingdom.

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.”

No man or devil will be able to withstand us. We are holy saints, the sons of God on this earth, and our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, back us up in all that we do. We are assigned legions of ministering angles to support and protect us in all of our ways. We will impact the fate of the entire world and set men free from bondage, just as we are destined to do.

The Gospel of the Kingdom of God will be preached throughout the entire world, so that many can be saved to eternal life with all of its blessings. We will give mankind hope and confidence for their future. Believers will escape the wrath of God to come and be able to enter into His holy presence. We will heal the sick; cast out demons; and even raise the dead back to life.

We will destroy all the works of darkness and recapture the whole planet for our Lord and Savior. We will revolutionize our way of life by establishing godly principles as the norm. We will abolish wars, violence, and conflict and introduce peace and solidarity. Poverty and lack will disappear, as we teach all mankind to share their resources with one another, as the Lord desires.

Our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, and we are direct heirs to the Kingdom of God with all its many benefits. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, and judge both men and angels in the days to come. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance, and show all men how to dwell in love and unity as brothers and sisters.

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.”

Very soon now, Jesus Christ will return to us to receive His everlasting Kingdom on this earth. That is His eternal legacy for righteousness and obedience and we will be key players in His future plans. He will share His very own honor and glory with those of us who have walked in His ways and been faithful to serve Him and His people. He will appoint us to be kings and priests of God.

We will be judges of both men and angels, and enforce Kingdom principles of fairness, equality and justice. Everyone will be righteous and have God’s laws written in their minds and hearts. We will dwell in peace with one another and enjoy our relationships. We will encourage all men to worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, and to celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days.

The entire earth will be filled with the glory of God, as He comes to take up residence with His children. He will fellowship intimately with us, and take an active interest in all the details of our lives. He will bind up all of our wounds; restore everything that has been taken from us; and change our frail, mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in His awesome presence.

The Power That Works In Us

Colossians 2:9-10 “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:”

Jesus Christ was God Himself made man for our express benefit. He did not come to condemn the world, but to save us from all of our sins and bring us life in abundance to the overflow. He conquered all powers and principalities, and made an open show of them at the cross. Jesus defeated all the works of darkness when He overcame sin, death and the grave.

The very same, glorious, resurrection power that filled Christ to capacity resides in His followers. He is the Head, but we are His Body on this earth, and we will resume His ministry where He left off. We will share our faith with conviction, and make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation of this world.

All those who repent and are baptized will be redeemed. We will teach them to overcome their tendencies towards sin and evil and empower them to walk as the children of almighty God. We will heal the sick of all their diseases and set captives free from demonic oppression. We will even raise the dead back to life again, as Jesus did when He walked among us.

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.”

Believers will take back the entire earth and everything in it for the everlasting Kingdom of God. Nothing will be impossible to us if we imitate our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and operate in the full power of His Holy Spirit. We are the Body of Christ and we will walk in miracles, signs and wonders in the days to come before He returns. He will lead and guide us so that we succeed in all that we do.

We will confront all the world governments to make certain that they treat their people fairly. We will eliminate all wars, violence and conflict in our personal affairs. We will establish peace, order and stability on the earth, just as it is in heaven. Poverty and lack will be abolished, as we teach all men to share their resources with one another. Everyone will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.

All of creation is awaiting the revealing of the sons of God, so that we can restore it to its original beauty and balance. We will make certain all plants and animals are in harmony with one another and subject to man once again. We will speak to the climate, so that it is always temperate and predictable. There will be no more pollution or natural catastrophes that cause death and devastation in their wake.

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:”

The Body of Christ will be a tremendous instrument for change in the critical days to come on the earth. We will be conduits for the Lord’s power to manifest in the lives of His people. We will share our faith so that others can be set free as we have been. We will break yokes of bondage to sin and evil off of many lives, so that men, women and even children can inherit eternal life with all of its blessings.

Every human being on the face of this earth will have an equal opportunity to be saved. We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Christ as their King. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons that oppress them. We will even raise the dead back to life, as an awesome demonstration of God’s power that works through us to minister His infinite love, mercy and compassion.

Nothing will be impossible to us as we serve the Lord and His people. This entire world will be refreshed and renewed, as we usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God. There will be peace, order and stability established in all of our lives. Men will all learn to be righteous or be condemned to never ending punishment. The Kingdom of God will be a literal paradise on this earth for all the righteous.

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 Lord, Jesus Christ, will be glorified in His people. We will introduce God’s way of doing things as the norm. There will be no more strife and division among us. We will establish godly principles of fairness, equality and justice in all of our human affairs. All world governments will realign their policies to make certain that all men are treated with dignity and respect.

We will eliminate all wars, violence and conflict. There will finally be peace on this earth. Oppression and exploitation of one man over another will cease. There will be no more artificial barriers that separate us. Class distinctions and social injustice will be eradicated. Poverty and lack will also disappear, as we share all the vast resources of the universe with one another.

Very soon now, our Lord and Savior will return to this earth to begin His millennial rule and reign. He will share His very own honor and glory with those of us who have faithfully served Him and His people. We will be appointed to be kings and priests of almighty God, so that we can teach all of mankind to dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.

Kingdom Power

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.”

The Body of Christ will do mighty exploits in His name in the critical days to come on the earth. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that hold men in bondage to sin and evil and purposefully usher in the government of almighty God and His justice system. We will restore peace, order and stability to all of our affairs, so that all men are treated with dignity and respect.

Disease, death and destruction will be things of the past when we minister healing and deliverance to our fellow man as God desires. We will eliminate all wars, violence, bloodshed and conflict in every nation of this world. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of others. Poverty and lack will disappear as men learn to share their valuable resources with one another.

All of creation will respond to our commands to restore it to its original beauty and balance. We will make certain that the predatory spirit disappears. All plants and animals will be in perfect harmony with one another and subject to man once again. The climate will be regulated, so there will be no more pollution or natural catastrophes that ever cause devastation in their wake.

The Kingdom of God will be heaven on the earth for all of the righteous. It will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems. The entire universe will be shaken when the Lord moves through those of us who are called by His holy name. We will make certain that everything is cleansed and refurbished, so that Christ can return to dwell with His people.

Matthew 6:13 “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

We are sons and daughters of God, His holy saints, who have served Him and His people faithfully in these last days. We have been imbued with divine power and authority to usher in the Kingdom of God to this earth. All of mankind looks up to us and wants what we have. We share our faith and deliver all those who are in bondage to sin and evil of any kind. We heal the sick and even raise the dead back to life.

The Lord protects us from all harm and anoints us for total victory in the name of Jesus Christ. Everything that we do is successful, despite the resistance that we incur. We destroy demonic strongholds that get in our way and minister to God’s people in love, mercy and compassion. We have been through periods of intense training and we suffered through tests, trials and tribulation only to emerge as conquerors.

Nothing is impossible to us. We walk in miracles, signs and wonders and glorify our Lord and Savior in everything that we do. Very soon now, every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord over all of creation.” We will deliver His everlasting Kingdom to Him and share in His millennial rule and reign. We will be appointed kings and priests of God, so we can minister to His people.

Psalm 145:11-13 “They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known 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.”

The name of Jesus Christ has inherent power and authority in it. He is both almighty God and the Son of Man who redeemed the entire human race from all of its sins. He defeated all powers and principalities at the cross and made an open show of them, so that He could take back the dominion that belongs to man. We will usher in His Kingdom to this earth, and take back all that the devil has stolen from us.

All authority in heaven and earth was given to Christ by our heavenly Father. He was the firstborn of many sons and daughters who are called in His name to serve the Lord and His people. We are joint heirs with Him to all the promises for righteousness to include honor and glory. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords who will soon return to receive His eternal rewards and to commence His rule and reign.

Christ will judge all of mankind to determine who has been righteous and obedient, and who deserves never ending punishment in the lake of fire. He will gather the faithful to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God for all of eternity. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and protect us from all harm. He will make certain that we are all healthy, happy and content in His awesome presence.

The power and glory of Jesus Christ are unmatched in all of creation. Only He has earned the right to be exalted. Those of us who believe in His name and walk in His ways will be privileged to share in His Kingdom forever more. We will be appointed kings and priests of almighty God, and be judges and teachers of all men. We will even rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

 

 

Chapter 8 – New Heavens And A New Earth

Deuteronomy 4:30-31 “When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, [even] in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God [is] a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.”

Much has gone wrong in our world today. Men are haughty and proud – ungrateful to almighty God who has freely supplied them with all good things. They mock the righteous and torment those who are weak and vulnerable. They deplete the resources of this earth and make wars with one another. Oppression and exploitation are common and social injustice runs rampant.

Sin and rebellion are at an all time high. Human beings are lovers of self instead of lovers of God. They are involved in all sorts of wicked pursuits, ungodly aberrations and outright perversions. They glorify the creation rather than the Creator. They trade righteousness and peace for wickedness and evil, and consume one another in their quest for more and more material things.

God’s people are crying out to Him for relief. He will never leave us or forsake us, no matter how dark and dismal things might become. The Lord sees our sad state of affairs, and He will not remain detached from this world much longer. He will divinely intervene and rescue us from our tribulation. He will dispatch Jesus Christ and all His heavenly hosts to set matters straight.

Christ will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming, and banish Satan and all of his minions to the abyss. He will judge both the living and the dead. He will take vengeance on all the enemies of His people and punish all wrongdoers in the unquenchable lake of fire. The Lord will purge both heaven and earth and usher in His everlasting Kingdom.

Mark 13:31-33 “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.”

When we see signs and wonders all around us, like natural disasters and cosmic disturbances, we will know that Christ’s return is imminent. Yet only our heavenly Father knows the exact day and hour. The Lord will not totally destroy this planet, as some may believe, but He will dramatically change things to line up with His express will. Very soon now, there will be new heavens and a new earth.

This world will pass away together with all the wickedness and evil that has controlled it. The ungodly will be destroyed in the wrath of Christ’s coming; no defilement will ever enter into the Kingdom of God. Only those who are righteous, loving and obedient will remain unscathed. We will inherit an eternal legacy for all of our faithfulness. The Lord will not ever forget His covenant with His people.

The former things will be forgotten. Our God will make everything new once again. We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden with no downside this time. He will change our mortal bodies that are subject to disease and death into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for all eternity.

The Lord will bring divine order and stability to our lives, as He has promised us. He will deliver us from everything that threatens us and gather us to Himself, as He has always desired to do. He will vindicate us before both men and angels. He will bind up all of our wounds, and restore everything that was stolen from us. The children of God will soon dwell in His holy presence in paradise once again.

Hebrews 6:10-12 “For God [is] not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”

Our God will not forget all of the promises that He has made to His people for their righteousness and obedience. He will lavish us with all spiritual and temporal blessings in a Kingdom that will never end. We will dwell in heaven on this earth and enjoy our lives as never before. The Lord will share all the vast resources of the universe with us and we will thrive in His presence.

He will wipe away every tear and bind up all of our wounds. We will be vindicated before both men and angels. Jesus Christ will change our mortal bodies that are subject to disease and death into new, glorious, resurrection forms that never grow old and die. We will live forever in good health and vitality to see our children and our children’s children, as He has always promised us.

We will be fruitful and multiply as directed to doe comma. Our offspring will be blessed for all generations to come. We will have dominion over all of creation; the plants and animals will be subject to us once again. We will build beautiful houses for our families, and grow crops for our food. There will be no more night and day; the glory of almighty God Himself will be our eternal light.

In the days to come, all of us will be righteous and know the Lord intimately. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts, so that we always obey Him. We will dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity. There will be nothing that harms or defiles us in any way. The Kingdom of God will be idyllic, the perfect habitat for both God and man to enjoy for all time.

Ephesians 1:10-12 “That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; [even] in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.”

Very soon now, the full end-time harvest of souls will be gathered in, and we will have reached the time for the consummation of all things. Heaven and earth will be joined together in Jesus Christ, and everything will be made new once again. There will be no more death and destruction. Chaos and confusion will all disappear. Wickedness and evil will not torment us any longer.

The Lord will destroy all the enemies of His people and establish peace, order and stability on this earth, just as it is in heaven. He will set up His eternal rule and reign in the Kingdom of God, as He has promised us. He will punish all the rebellious and gather the righteous to Himself for all of eternity. The Kingdom will never end. It will be a literal paradise for both God and man.

We will inherit an eternal legacy that no man or devil can steal from us. The Lord will bind up all of our wounds and restore all that has been taken from us. We will have all of our needs met in abundance and share in all the vast resources of the universe. There is no good thing that almighty God will ever withhold from His people. We will have joy and freedom in His presence.

Jesus Christ will share His very own eternal rewards with us, and boast of us to both men and angels. Everyone will know the Lord and dwell together in love and unity as brothers and sisters. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will be appointed kings and priests of God, and rule and reign with Christ over all nations of the world.

The Birth Pangs

Hebrews 12:25-29 “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. And this [word], Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God [is] a consuming fire.”

Almighty God is warning each and every one of us that the days are short and that we need to get back to basics. We should seek Him with all of our hearts and repent of all wrongdoing. We need to accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior and appropriate His righteousness by faith. There is no way that any of us can be saved from our sins apart from the cross.

If we believe the truth and walk in it, we will be spared God’s wrath in the critical days to come. The Lord is sending Jesus Christ back to this earth to set matters straight and usher in His everlasting Kingdom for all eyes to see. Jesus is not returning as a meek and mild Lamb of God this time, however. He has vengeance in His heart to destroy the ungodly and their ungodliness.

Christ will shake everything that can be shaken, to make certain that it lines up with the perfect will of God. Anything that is evil and corrupt will be eliminated. He will make certain that nothing harmful or defiling ever enters into His everlasting Kingdom. He will also purge His people and sanctify us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we can spend all eternity with Him.

Matthew 24:21-22 “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.”

The winds of change cannot blow without causing some adversity to those who seek peace. We are experiencing great tribulation on this earth now, as it was predicted. There are wicked leaders who are oppressing and exploiting their citizens in record numbers. Poverty, famine and disease all threaten God’s people. Many countries are combating insurrection within, and war without.

Men have abandoned God and are consuming one another in their lust for more and more material things. They are selfish and ungrateful, lovers of self. Chaos and confusion are at a new high. Lying and stealing are the norm; people of honor and integrity are few and far between. The hearts of most men have grown cold. They are caught up in all sorts of aberrations, perversions and idolatries.

We have shared our faith, as we have been commanded to do, despite the scorn and ridicule that we have encountered. We have demonstrated the awesome power of God for all eyes to see. The entire world has been impacted by our efforts and we can rest assured that they will not go unrewarded. Very soon, we will witness a dramatic demonstration of God’s displeasure with blatant sinfulness.

There will be severe birth pangs when the Kingdom of God is ushered in. Major changes will occur all around us which may frighten those who are doing wrong. An increase in natural disasters and cosmic disturbances will merely be signs of what is to come. The entire world will be purged of all its defilement. All wickedness and evil will be eradicated when heaven is brought to this earth.

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.”

Very soon now, men’s hearts will fail them for fear of what is coming on the earth. The powers of heaven will be shaken as a clear and stern warning of what is to come. There will be an abundance of natural catastrophes that seem to strike all at once. The wicked will run, but find no place to hide. Despite what is going on all around them, they will still continue to disobey almighty God.

Believers will be scorned, ridiculed and persecuted for our beliefs. The devil will attack us mercilessly and do his best to conquer us. However, the Lord will intervene before His people are totally destroyed. He will send His Son, Jesus Christ, and legions of avenging angels to combat all of our enemies. Those who are evil, stubborn and rebellious will not escape His everlasting punishment.

Jesus Christ will set His foot down on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem and there will be a huge earthquake of such epic proportion that it changes the face of the entire earth. The firmament will be totally rearranged, so that all evil will be obliterated. Christ will judge both men and angels and banish Satan to the abyss; the wicked will be cast into the unquenchable lake of fire.

The Day Of The Lord

1Thessalonians 5:1-4 “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.”

Believers know the truth; there is a day of judgment and retribution that is coming on the entire human race. All signs point to the return of Jesus Christ; we know in our spirits that it is imminent. We will not be caught unaware. We may not know the exact hour of His coming, but we are adequately prepared. We will not be overtaken by all of the darkness and deception that surround us.

Although things may become very difficult for us in the critical days to come, we will remain unscathed because we have made the Lord our refuge and our strength. We have sanctified ourselves and served Him faithfully despite resistance. We can have hope and confidence for our future and trust in all His covenant promises. It will be well with us and our offspring for all generations to come.

We are the righteousness of God and we will escape His wrath. However, those who are still caught up in the evil, world system will not be so fortunate. They have had ample notice that permanent judgment and condemnation await the unrepentant and still they persist in their wicked ways. Almighty God has no choice but to banish them from His presence and punish them for all eternity.

Sin is sin and it requires payback. The wages of sin are death – plain and simple. Without a saving faith in Jesus Christ and the atoning work of the cross, men will perish. There is no way to appease the Lord and prevent His anger unless we repent and believe in His Son. We have had every opportunity to hear the truth and change our way of thinking, but sadly enough, many still defy our God.

Romans 1:18-21 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. 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: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”

The Lord has been infinitely patient with mankind but time is running out. The truth has been made readily available to every man, woman and child. Without sincere faith in God and in His Son, Jesus Christ, they will perish. We all require salvation and there is no way to survive what is coming on the earth without it. The unrighteous will never inherit eternal life with all its benefits.

Wicked men ignore almighty God and His warnings, despite the fact that He has only their best interest at heart. They persist in their evil ways and flaunt their sins, as if there were no retribution that would ever come on them. Very soon now, the wrath of God will be revealed from heaven and He will smite them with His mighty right hand and obliterate them for all of eternity.

All signs point to the imminent return of Jesus Christ with all of His angels and saints. He will not be the Lamb of God this time. He has vengeance in His heart to settle all scores and punish those who are wicked and unrepentant. Those who may have been first will be last in the day of reckoning that is coming on all of us. Only the meek and innocent will enter the Kingdom of God.

Isaiah 13:6-9 “Howl ye; for the day of the LORD [is] at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces [shall be as] flames. 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.”

The Day of the Lord is rapidly approaching, and men’s hearts will fail them for fear of what will happen if they fail to change their ways and seek His face. He has been merciful and compassionate to them and they have blatantly refused His advances. It will be sheer torment for all those who have chosen evil over good. The ignorant and rebellious will not escape condemnation for their sins.

Soon there will be nowhere to run and no place to hide from the anger of God that will fall on the ungodly and all their wicked ways. The Lord will not relent. He has warned us repeatedly that we should repent and be made righteous by the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. Men openly defy Him and make a mockery of our faith, but they will soon see a dramatic manifestation of His power.

The Lord will destroy all evil off the face of the earth and usher in His everlasting Kingdom right before our very eyes. He will leave no trace of defilement behind. The entire earth will be purged with fire and cleansed of all that contaminated it. The stubborn and unrepentant will be judged and found lacking. Their fate will be wailing and gnashing of teeth in the unquenchable lake of fire.

Nothing will remain the same as it has been in this world. Almighty God will divinely intervene and establish peace, order and stability. He will not permit the righteous to be moved. He is anxious to protect His people, and to provide us with all that He promised. We are heirs to an eternal legacy. The Kingdom of God will be heaven on this earth and our dwelling place for all of time.

2Peter 3:10-14 “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. [Seeing] then [that] all these things shall be dissolved, what manner [of persons] ought ye to be in [all] holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.”

The Bible makes it very clear. We must choose life over death. The Day of the Lord will come unexpectedly and be cataclysmic for all those who are stubborn and rebellious. If men fail to repent and believe the truth, they will ultimately be destroyed. The earth itself will be purged and cleansed with righteous indignation and holy fire. Nothing will remain that can defile either God or man. We must cleanse ourselves of all unrighteousness now by believing the truth.

The Lord will intervene in our personal affairs and settle all scores on our behalf. He will right all wrongs and restore all that His people have lost or had stolen from them. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and cast Satan into the abyss, so He can no longer oppress us or hold us in bondage. The wicked will be judged and found guilty of their sins, and banished from our presence for all of eternity. Our God will make a permanent end to all the ungodly and their ungodliness.

There will soon be new heavens and a new earth in the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God. All of the righteous will be gathered together and enter into a literal paradise on earth. The Lord will come and dwell with His people and take an active interest in all the details of our lives. He will bless us in abundance and heal all our pain and suffering. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us. We will live forever and thrive in His awesome presence.

The Kingdom Of God Comes With Power

Acts 14:22 “Confirming the souls of the disciples, [and] exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”

Jesus Christ told His disciples that the Kingdom of God would come with much tribulation. He wanted us to be forewarned. The righteous have suffered immeasurably in bringing heaven to this earth, as we have been commissioned to do. We have been scorned, mocked and ridiculed for our faith. Many have been openly persecuted because they loved the Lord and sought to serve His people.

The wicked and evil forces of darkness have threatened our well-being and openly opposed our efforts to share our faith with others. We have been taunted and tempted, oppressed and exploited, but we have not relented. We will bring in the full end-time harvest of souls that is required, and tear down all demonic strongholds that keep men in bondage to their sins and try to impede our progress.

Believers are determined to serve the Lord in any capacity that He deems worthwhile. We will preach the Gospel with fervor to every race, tongue and nation. We will speak to all world governments and challenge their policies until they line up with Kingdom standards of righteousness and justice for all. We will fight poverty and lack, and strive to establish fairness and equality in all of our affairs.

We must endure until the end, and trust in almighty God to deliver us from all of our enemies and hasten the coming of His Kingdom, as He has promised. We will expose all the works of the devil, and overcome all evil with good. We will see the return of Jesus Christ in power and glory, and be active participants in His triumphal entry. He will lead an army of angels and saints that do His bidding.

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.”

Our Lord and Savior is returning as the King of kings and Lord of lords. No longer the meek and mild Lamb of God, He has vengeance in His heart to utterly destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness. He will smite them with His powerful right hand and wipe all evil off the face of the earth in one fell swoop.

Christ will restore peace, order and stability to this world and cleanse it of all unrighteousness.

There will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere. Social injustice will be a thing of the past. Poverty and lack will no longer hold us in bondage. Our Lord will settle all scores and level all playing fields. Those who were first will be last, and the last will be first. The meek will inherit the earth and all of its valuable resources. Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality will finally prevail.

Jesus Christ will judge all men, and even angels, to determine who has been righteous and who has been rebellious. No one will escape His scrutiny or persuade Him to lower His perfect standards. Those who have been faithful, loving and obedient will be eternally blessed. However, those who have been wicked and evil will be banished from His awesome presence to the unquenchable lake of fire forever.

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.”

God knows that the enemy has influenced mankind to fall from grace and deviate from the path that the Lord had set for our lives. The devil has been the primary cause of all chaos and confusion, wickedness and evil, sin and rebellion on this earth for thousands of years. He has attempted to steal, kill and destroy. He has even had the audacity to accuse us of our wrongdoing before God.

Our heavenly Father dispatched Jesus Christ to us the first time to defeat all the works of the devil and to save us from our sins. He destroyed all principalities and powers and gave us back our dominion over this earth. Unfortunately, we have not always walked in the divine power and authority that belong to us. We have permitted evil to get a stronghold that only God Himself can remove.

Almighty God is prepared to intervene in the affairs of mankind once again. Very soon now, He will send Jesus Christ back to make a final end to all wickedness and evil, and to purge the entire world of iniquity. Our Redeemer will smite the ungodly in the sheer wrath of His coming. He will eliminate all His enemies and establish His everlasting Kingdom on this earth, just as it is in heaven.

Our Lord and Savior will rule and reign as a righteous King. He will be loving and kind, a benevolent leader to His people. He will protect us from all harm and prevent defilement to either God or man. He will cast Satan and all his minions into the bottomless pit, so that they can no longer wreak vengeance on the upright. We will have only safety and security in His awesome presence.

The Fate Of The Righteous

Psalm 37:37-40 “Mark the perfect [man], and behold the upright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace. But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.”

Now more than ever, we have to trust our God and rely on His covenant promises to us. Things will soon grow dark and dismal, and this world, as we know it, will be permanently changed. The Lord has no recourse but to punish sinfulness and eradicate it for all time. It only corrupts and contaminates His people, and He has wonderful things planned for our future.

The righteous have nothing to fear in the days to come. The Lord knows who His beloved children are, and He will rise up and deliver us from anything that threatens our welfare. He will supernaturally intervene on our behalf and gather us to Himself, as He has promised us that He will. The wicked will soon be cut off and the faithful will shine with God’s glorious light.

We will help to bring heaven itself to this earth realm and establish peace, order and stability in all of our lives. We will advance the Kingdom of almighty God and His government that promotes fairness, equality and justice for all. We will escape the wrath to come on all of the wicked and rebellious, and be blessed for our love, righteousness and obedience for all eternity.

1Peter 4:16-18 “Yet if [any man suffer] as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time [is come] that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if [it] first [begin] at us, what shall the end [be] of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?”

The righteous will be faced with increasing tests, trials and tribulation as the days progress. We are in a battle of cosmic proportion. The Lord expects us to endure until the very end, and defend our faith to all those who would mock and scorn us. We must persist in our efforts to win over those who are still lost in sin. Their eternal fate rests with us, and we must do what we can.

Jesus Christ will soon return to this earth to judge both the living and the dead. He will begin with the household of almighty God Himself to determine who is just and faithful and who deserves never ending punishment. Those who believe in Him and are obedient will have nothing to fear. However, the sinful and rebellious will incur His wrath and permanent condemnation.

No one will escape the Lord’s scrutiny or be able to persuade Him to lower His impeccable standards for any of us. Our God is holy and perfect, and he cannot abide with evil. He plans to come to this earth and dwell with His people, but we must be totally sanctified to enter into His presence. Only the meek and upright will be able to enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God.

The unrepentant sinner, who denies the power of the cross of Jesus Christ, will ultimately be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire for all of eternity. Those who defy the Lord will perish in their rebellion. Our God is under no obligation to tolerate any form of wickedness and evil. He will, instead, destroy it off the face of the earth before He ever permits it to contaminate His people.

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.”

The Lord knows how to preserve His people holy and blameless until the return of Jesus Christ with all His angels and saints. He will protect us from all defilement and arrange our circumstances so that we remain in dominion over all evil. He will not permit His people to be moved. He will lead and guide us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we avoid all temptation to sin and operate in His strength.

We will serve the Lord with joy and gladness in the critical days to come on this earth. We will shine with His glorious light and walk in divine power and authority. The very same anointing that was on Jesus Christ during His ministry will rest on us, so that we can complete His work. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to all nations, and set mankind free from their bondage to sin and evil.

All those who are receptive to the truth will repent of their sins and be baptized to eternal life with all of its many benefits. Those who refuse to believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, will perish for all time. There will be no second chances given to either men or angels. We must decide where we choose to spend all of eternity. The Lord will not relent; He has made redemption available to every man, woman and child.

Matthew 13:41-43 “The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”

When Jesus Christ ultimately returns to set up His everlasting Kingdom, it will be too late for any of us to change our fate. We must choose righteousness over evil now, or perish for all of eternity. Our Redeemer has vengeance in His heart to destroy all forms of ungodliness and to punish the wicked for their sinfulness. He will dispatch hosts of heavenly angels to gather the iniquitous off the face of the earth.

Christ will judge all men, and even angels, to determine who has been faithful and obedient and who deserves never ending punishment. Those who have repented of their sins and followed Him will be gathered into His Kingdom. However, the rebellious will not fare as well. They will be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire, where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth forever more.

Nothing that is wicked or defiling will ever enter into the Kingdom of God. Our Creator is holy and perfect and He cannot tolerate the presence of evil. He plans on actually taking up residence with us, and nothing perverse can abide with Him. So too, He wants His people protected from contamination and free from all harm. Heaven itself is coming to this earth and it will be a paradise for both God and man.

The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems. It will be the dwelling place of our heavenly Father; His Son, Jesus Christ; and all the angels and saints. The righteous dead will be raised back to life again, and we will all put on new, glorious, resurrection bodies that live forever in health and vitality. We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden.

An Eternal Inheritance

Psalm 37:27-29 “Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.”

If we depart from evil and do good, as the Lord desires, we will have many blessings and eternal rewards. Despite how we may have struggled for our faith, He has never forsaken us. Our God has strengthened us in the power of His might and preserved us from all defilement. We are a people after His very own heart, and His greatest desire is to provide for us and to protect us from all harm.

All of God’s promises for righteousness will definitely come to pass in due season. We are about to receive our eternal inheritance, that no man or angel can ever steal from us. We have a promised land with abundant blessings that we can expect. The Kingdom of almighty God on this earth is our legacy for faithfulness and obedience and He will make certain that we enter into it.

The Lord will change our mortal bodies that are susceptible to decay and death into glorious, resurrection forms. We will live forever in good health and vitality, and see our offspring for all generations to come. Our heavenly Father will actually come and dwell with us on planet earth, and we will thrive in His holy presence. He will take an active interest in every area of our personal lives.

Romans 8:16-17 “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.”

The same Holy Spirit which dwells in Jesus Christ resides in those who believe in Him and walk in His ways. We are the beloved children of God if we have made Jesus Lord of our lives. We are joint-heirs with Him to all the promises for righteousness, and seated in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. We must endure all things patiently, so that we can also be glorified with Christ.

We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself and He will boast of us to all creation. We may have experienced trials and tribulation in the past, but He is making all things new once again. We will no longer remember our former pain and suffering. He will blot it from our memories and heal us of all our wounds. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and protect us from all harm.

He will vindicate our cause before both men and angels, and restore all that has been taken from us over the years. He will supply all of our needs – both spiritual and temporal – in abundance. We will have all of the vast resources of the universe at our disposal. The Lord will make certain that we have prosperity, instead of our former poverty and lack. Our offspring will be blessed for all generations to come.

Jesus Christ will share His very own honor and glory with us. He will even appoint us to be kings and priests of God. We will help to enforce Kingdom principles of fairness, equality and justice. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. All men will be righteous and dwell together as brothers and sisters in love and unity, so that there is finally peace on this earth.

Psalm 37:10-11 “For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it [shall] not [be]. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.”

Those who were one first, may be last in the Kingdom of God. Christ will settle all scores and level all playing fields. He has vengeance in His heart to destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness. If men have oppressed and exploited others, they will be subject to just punishment for injuring God’s people. The wicked have already had their rewards, and they will be banished for all of eternity.

Jesus will enforce righteousness and justice in the government of almighty God on this earth. There will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere. Poverty and lack will be eradicated. Social injustice will disappear and all men will be treated with dignity and respect. There will be no more artificial barriers which separate us from one another. All mankind will dwell in love, peace and unity.

The meek will inherit the earth and everything in it, as the Lord Himself has promised. All men will look up to us as we share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. The Lord will appoint us to be kings and priests of His people. We will be just leaders and capable teachers of others. If we humble ourselves now, we will be exalted in due season to rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

Revelation 21:6-8 “And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

It all boils down to persistence. Those who patiently seek the truth find it, and those who are ignorant will perish. We have all been given an equal opportunity to believe in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and all that He accomplished on our behalf. He has made redemption available to every man, woman and child on the earth. We have no excuse for fear or unbelief, defiance or rebellion.

Those who have refused to repent of their sins and accept Christ as their Redeemer will go to perdition. He is under no obligation to tolerate them any longer. They have had the chance to be saved from their sins and ignored it. Their fate is to be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire with all those who are wicked and evil. The Lord will not permit them to contaminate His people any longer.

We may have struggled to believe the truth and serve our God and His people over the years, but very soon now, it will all pay off. Jesus Christ is about to return to judge the living and the dead; the faithful and the rebellious; the household of God and the nations. All those who have sincerely believed in Him and pursued His way of doing things will enter into His everlasting Kingdom.

If we are righteous and obedient and endure till the very end, we will be amply rewarded for our diligence. Those who overcome the world, their flesh and the devil will be called the sons and daughters of God for all eternity. The Lord will boast of us to all of creation and appoint us kings and priests to His people. We will judge both men and angels, and rule and reign with Christ over all nations.

An Everlasting Kingdom

2Peter 1:10-11 “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”

We are called and chosen of God for great and wonderful things. He has awesome plans for our future. He wants to bless us in abundance and fellowship intimately with us for all eternity as He planned from the very foundation of the world. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from His people. He wants us to share in all the vast resources of the universe and take dominion over all of creation.

All the promises of almighty God through Jesus Christ are available to His people who believe the truth and walk in His ways. Peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom all belong to us if we have been righteous and obedient. If we patiently endure until the end and serve the Lord and His people, as we are destined to do, we will have generous rewards for all our efforts.

We will take back this entire earth for the Kingdom of God and bring heaven itself to this planet, so that God and man are never separated from one another ever again. The Lord wants to dwell with His people and provide all of our needs as only a father can do. He will protect us from all harm and take vengeance on all of our enemies. He will grant us eternal life, so that we enjoy His companionship forever.

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 will soon be returning in a flourish of power and glory as the King of kings and Lord of lords. He has accomplished great things for His people and He deserves all of our gratitude, honor and respect. Every knee will bow and every tongue will utter praises to His holy name. He will receive an everlasting Kingdom as His reward, and rule and reign for all of eternity.

He will judge both men and angels and make certain that only the righteous inherit eternal life with all of its many benefits. All the wicked and evildoers will be rooted out and punished for all eternity. Satan and his minions will be cast into the bottomless pit so they can no longer oppress us. Nothing that harms or defiles will ever be permitted to enter into the Kingdom of God.

All the angels and saints will dwell together in the very presence of almighty God Himself. Everyone will know the Lord. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth and ascend His holy mountain to celebrate all His sabbaths and perpetual feast days. All of creation will glorify our God, and be beautiful and bountiful once again.

Psalm 145:10-13 “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. Thy kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion [endureth] throughout all generations.”

The Kingdom of almighty God will be paradise on this earth for all those who are faithful and obedient. We will dwell in love, peace and unity with one another as brothers and sisters. All men will know the Lord and worship Him in Spirit and in truth. We will thrive in His awesome presence, and celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness.

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be honored and glorified for all that He has accomplished on our behalf. He will be a just and benevolent King to His people. We will have all of our needs met in abundance, even before we ask Him. We will have beautiful homes for our large families and grow crops for our food. Life will be simple and pleasurable for all of us.

The Kingdom of God will protect us from all harm and keep us from all defilement. Christ will make certain that no wickedness and evil ever penetrates its borders. He will enforce godly principles of fairness, justice and equality, so that no man fears bondage and oppression of any kind. His Kingdom will last for all generations and be our eternal inheritance for righteousness.

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

Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Christ is Lord.” He will be glorified in those of us who have walked in His ways. We will share in His honor for all eternity. He will appoint us as kings and priests of His people. We will judge both men and angels and be capable rulers. We will teach everyone to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers, and enforce Kingdom principles of fairness and justice.

The Kingdom of God will be our legacy. We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden with no downside this time. We will have eternal life with all the blessings that almighty God has planned for us. It will literally be heaven on the earth for all those who reside there. Peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom are all guaranteed to us by almighty God Himself.

Our children and our children’s children will all be blessed as a result of our loyalty and obedience. They will be fruitful and multiply until they cover the entire earth. They will have all needs met in abundance, and love the Lord with all their minds, hearts, souls and strength. Our heavenly Father will walk in the cool of the evening with man once again, as He has desired to do from the very foundation of the world.

New Heavens And A New Earth

Revelation 21:1-5 “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. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”

The most dramatic promise that almighty God has ever made to His people is that of a new heaven and new earth. He is re-creating the entire universe for our express benefit. Wickedness and evil have nearly destroyed it and He will not tolerate that. He is making all things new once again, so that we have a fresh start. Only righteousness, peace and love will prevail in the Kingdom of God.

This world, as we know it, will be dramatically changed. Heaven itself will be brought here. We cannot even begin to imagine how wonderful our lives will finally be. There will be no more wars and conflict, no oppression or exploitation of the weak and vulnerable. The Lord will destroy all the enemies of His people and make certain that everything that we have lost or had stolen is restored to us.

We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden, and life will be as it was intended from the very foundation of the world. The Lord will be involved in an intimate relationship with us, as He always desired. We will dwell in His actual presence in a literal paradise for all of eternity. Men will all be righteous and know our God. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts.

The Lord will wipe away all of our tears and bind up all of our wounds. We will no longer remember our former pain and suffering. He will bless us with all spiritual and temporal advantages and meet all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him. Death and destruction will fade away, as we receive the gift of eternal life. We will live forever to see our offspring for all generations to come.

Isaiah 65:17-24 “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever [in that] which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner [being] an hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit [them]; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree [are] the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they [are] the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”

The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems. It will be heaven on this earth for all the righteous. We will dwell in peaceful habitations in love, peace and unity and long enjoy the work of our hands. We will grow crops for our food and be prosperous in everything that we do. There will be nothing that ever threatens our welfare.

The Lord will come and take up residence with His people and share all the vast resources of the universe with us. No need will go unmet. There will be no war and conflict, no poverty and lack, no greed and exploitation. We will have safety and security, peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom and give God all the thanks, praise and gratitude that He deserves.

Our Creator will take an active interest in all the details of our lives. We will be the center of His attention, and He will be our focal point, as well. He will respond to our call, even as we are still speaking. He will fellowship with us as only a loving father can do, and boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. There will never be a separation between us ever again.

We will thrive in the awesome presence of our God and worship Him for all of eternity, as He desires. He will make absolutely certain that we are always healthy, happy and content. He wants only what is best for His beloved children, and He will do all that He can to make our lives pleasurable. Our offspring will all be blessed and cover the entire earth for all the generations to come.

Isaiah 60:18-21 “Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. 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.”

The Kingdom of God will make all wrongs right and level all playing fields. Wickedness and evil will all disappear, never to defile or torment us ever again. Wars, violence and conflict will not even be named among us. There will be no more death and destruction, poverty and lack, nor oppression and exploitation of God’s people anywhere on the face of this earth.

All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful once again. We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden and all living things will be subject to us. There will be no more predatory spirit, no more natural catastrophes that bring devastation in their wake. The climate will be temperate and predictable, and all forms of environmental pollution will be reversed.

There will be no more night and day, no change of seasons any longer. The glory of the Lord Himself will be our eternal light. His Kingdom will be heaven on the earth, and we will enjoy all of its benefits forever and ever. He has prepared it especially for us to enjoy. All men will be righteous and holy, and we will dwell together in peace with host of heavenly angels.

The Kingdom of God is our eternal legacy and no one will be able to take it from us. We will share in Jesus Christ’s very own honor and glory, and be appointed kings and priests of God. All men will look up to us and respect our role in their lives. We will enforce godly principles of fairness and justice, as we rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

Isaiah 66:22-23 “For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.”

Almighty God has planned this for thousands of years. He wants to be permanently reconciled with His beloved children and interact with them on an intimate basis. He is not a distant, forbidding God that is willing to abandon us. We were created in His very image and likeness to spend all of eternity with Him. He wants to provide whatever we need and protect us from all harm.

The people of God will dwell in a literal paradise for all time, just as the Lord has always intended for us to do. We will have offspring that are all blessed in abundance because of our faithfulness to love and serve Him. They will fill the entire earth, and glorify almighty God forever and ever. We will see our children and our children’s children for all the many generations to come.

All flesh will know the Lord and give Him all the thanks, praise and honor that He deserves. Both men and angels will go up to the New Jerusalem and give homage to our God. He will dwell on His holy mountain and wait for us to come and fellowship. 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.

So will we all be with the Lord and in perfect peace. He will be a God to us, and we will be a people after His own heart. We will spend our days in joy and freedom, and bask in all the many blessings that He has in store for us. The Lord will never deny us the desires of our heart or withhold any of His many promises to us. He has awesome plans for all those who love and trust Him!
