We have a great and awesome God who reveals all truth to us!

 

Preface

Romans 8:5-6 “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. For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace.” 

Man was created a spirit being who must live temporarily in the confines of a physical body, and that is our greatest challenge.  Our flesh is ever at war with our spirit, and we struggle within ourselves to maintain balance.  We are compelled to function and survive in both the supernatural and natural realms.  However, we have inherent limitations that impair our ability to see and hear, and to think and act as we should.   

Our dilemma is no secret to us; we are well aware of that paradox in our lives.  Without God’s direct intervention, we are hopeless and helpless.  Whether we realize it or not, we can do nothing apart from Him.  He is our source for all that we need and our protection from everything that can harm us.  He sustains our existence and continually draws us to Himself, so that we can be edified and strengthened.   

The Lord wants only the best for mankind.  Although each of us has rebelled against Him, He mercifully redeemed us.  Jesus Christ came so that we could be saved from all our sins once and for all.  He cancelled our sin debt with His very own death on the cross, and bought back our right standing with His Father.  He suffered and died as our sacrificial substitute, so that we could be set free to enjoy our lives to the fullest.   

Ephesians 3:9-12 “And to make all [men] see what [is] the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.”  

There is so much more to this life than what the average person realizes.  We need not walk in defeat or suffer lack of any kind, as so many of us do.  Man is not supposed to be victimized.  The Lord has made provision for us to rule and reign in this world and in the everlasting Kingdom of God to come.  He wants us to rise up and take dominion over our environment until we subdue it according to godly standards. 

We are not able to do that with our limited sensory knowledge.  Man’s wisdom is nothing in comparison to God’s.  We have to tap into the Lord’s genius resources, and acquire His heightened insight for the answers to all of our perplexities and the solutions to all of our problems.  We can and we will overcome all of our situations and circumstances, if we take the time and effort to seek almighty God and learn from Him.  

As believers in Jesus Christ, we have access to His very own Holy Spirit.  We can ask for and receive supernatural strength and guidance, wisdom and revelation from on high.  If we are really open to the truth, we will be able to assimilate deep and wonderful mysteries that will unlock unfathomable power in our lives.  All we need do is humble ourselves, and the Lord will show us how to operate in all His fullness. 

He will teach us to focus on developing our spiritual senses, so that we can understand everything that He yearns to show us.  We will begin to see what God sees, and act according to His plan and purpose.  Our minds will be transformed, so that we concentrate on spiritual matters more than worldly ones.  Even our behavior will eventually be changed, so that we can imitate Jesus Christ in all that we think, say and do. 

2Corinthians 4:18 “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal.”   

Our heavenly Father wants to share all the vast mysteries of the universe with His people, so that we can exercise dominion over all of creation as He intended for us to do from the beginning.  However, in order for that to happen, we have to forego our natural sense knowledge and dig deeper into spiritual truths.  We have to ask for and operate in the power of His Holy Spirit, so we can understand what He shares with us. 

It takes time to develop our spiritual senses, so that we have eyes to see and ears to hear as the Lord does. However, we now have the mind of Christ available to us.  We will acquire godly wisdom and revelation and process it correctly, so that we can function effectively.  We will have to improve both our perception and discernment to the point that we think like God and are obedient to do whatever He requires us to do.  

Our rewards will be both generous and permanent.  We will soon inherit the everlasting Kingdom of God on this earth, and rule and reign with Jesus Christ Himself.  We will have the heathen for our inheritance and even judge both men and angels.  The Lord will appoint us to be kings and priests to His people, and we will teach others how to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters in paradise on this earth.

 

Introduction

Mark 8:18 “Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?”   

Mankind is in a quandary at this point in time.  We are experiencing a sensory overload.  We have eyes that have grown dim, and ears that are stopped up.  Our perception has been desensitized by the constant stream of physical stimuli we get from the world around us.  We fail to see what has eternal ramifications, and close our ears to the voice of God that is continually speaking to us. 

Many of us have been caught up in our daily routines and are often overwhelmed by our struggle to survive in what has become a hostile environment.  We are beset with evil and these are dangerous times for God’s people.  The devil has deceived many and their love has grown cold.  The Lord has no alternative but to intervene in our affairs before we completely destroy ourselves. 

We have to take stock of who we are and why we are here.  We were created in the very image and likeness of almighty God Himself to be His sons and daughters.  While we should be lights in a dark place that is besieged by sin and deception, we are preoccupied by our own affairs and left without genuine power in our lives.  The Lord longs to set us free from our worldly distractions.  

All of creation belongs to us and we need to learn to subdue it according to our Creator’s eternal plan and purpose.  We are part of the big picture and the fate of the entire human race rests with us.  We must turn towards God and seek His guidance and direction, so that we can set matters straight before Christ returns to us.  We have to develop eyes to see and ears that hear the truth. 

Micah 7:7-8 “Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD [shall be] a light unto me.”  

We have been land-locked for so long, blinded by the god of this world into thinking that everything would continue as it is indefinitely.  However, the Lord has something quite different in mind for us.  He wants to restore all things to what they were in the beginning.  He needs us to partner with Him in bringing heaven itself to this earth in the Kingdom of God before Jesus Christ comes to set up His millennial rule and reign. 

The Lord wants to imbue us with divine power and authority, so that we can impact the fate of all mankind.  But first, we must be sanctified in body, soul and spirit and consecrated to His plans rather than our own personal agendas.  We need to sharpen our spiritual faculties, so that we can perceive what God is saying. He needs us to share our faith and demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion to the entire human race. 

Although we may stumble and fall, we will never be permanently cast down.  The Lord will be our refuge and our strength, our source of eternal light and wisdom.  He will surround us with His ministering angels to assist us in all of our efforts on His behalf.  We will be godly role models to men, women and children in every nation of the world.  We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and baptize many souls to eternal life. 

Proverbs 4:25-27 “Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.   Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.”  

We will accomplish amazing feats through the power of the Holy Spirit of God that works in us and through us to reach all of mankind.  We will heal the sick of all their afflictions; deliver men from their bondage to sin and evil; cast out demons; and even raise the dead back to life once again.  Nothing will be impossible to us as we take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God.

All world governments will be confronted with the truth.  We will cause men to see that peace, order and stability are in their best interest.  The sons and daughters of God will make certain that there is no more oppression or exploitation of one man over another.  We will eliminate all poverty and lack, as we persuade those with affluence to share their wealth with those who are less fortunate. 

We will soon realize that we have dominion over all living things, as the Lord has told us.  We will speak to all of creation and make certain that it is in total harmony, as it once was in the Garden of Eden.  The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable.  There will be no more natural disasters that ever cause death and destruction, no more pollution to defile the earth any longer.   

Believers will change the future of all mankind simply by sharpening our spiritual senses, then acting on our new found knowledge.  We will learn to see what God sees; hear what He hears; and speak what He speaks.  Jesus Christ will be able to operate with power and glory that manifests through each and every one of us.  We will usher the everlasting Kingdom of God into the earth realm.   

Psalm 66:16 “Come [and] hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.”  

We will one day see our Lord and Savior face-to-face.  He will wipe away all of our tears and heal all of our pain and suffering.  He will change our mortal bodies to be like His very own, and we will live forever in His awesome presence.  All flesh will finally worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, and be able to understand everything that He has to say to us.  There will no longer be a separation between God and man. 

Jesus Christ will meet all of our needs in abundance.  He will supply all that we require to be healthy, happy and content.  He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been stolen from us.  The Lord will banish Satan and all his minions to the bottomless pit and cast all wrongdoers into the lake of fire.  We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom. 

The Lord will boast of us to all of creation as His sons and daughters.  Jesus Christ will share His very own honor and glory with those who have been faithful to serve Him and His people.  We will judge both men and angels and He will appoint us to be kings and priests of God.  We will teach all of mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters, and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world.

 

Chapter 1 – Blind Eyes And Deaf Ears

Jeremiah 5:21 “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:”
 
Man was created in the very image and likeness of God for ongoing fellowship with Him. The Lord is always ready to communicate with us, but we often tune Him out. He wants to share all the mysteries of the universe with us, so that we can walk in dominion over all creation as we were intended to do. While it may seem to be a contradiction, many of us simply do not have eyes that see and ears that hear.
 
The Lord is never silent or withdrawn from mankind. He has not abandoned us as some think. He is ever reaching out to us in His infinite mercy and kindness. However, we are foolish and proud and reject what God tries to show and tell us. We ignore His advances and then wonder why our lives are such a mess. It may very well be that we are simply desensitized to His voice and without spiritual discernment.
 
There is no reason why any of us should be lacking in guidance and direction when almighty God has a perfect plan for us. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth to redeem us of all our sins and to provide us with life in abundance to the overflow. We have been set free in the truth and we can understand God’s way of doing things, so that we can prevail in this world and in the everlasting Kingdom to come.
 
Through the Blood of Jesus Christ, all things become new for us. We are no longer faced with death as a penalty for our sins. Christ was our substitute; He was cursed so that all of mankind could be blessed. He, who was without sin Himself, became sin for us and then suffered and died, so that we could be made the righteousness of God by faith. We are now entitled to receive eternal life with all its many benefits.
 
Isaiah 42:18-20 “Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. Who [is] blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger [that] I sent? who [is] blind as [he that is] perfect, and blind as the LORD'S servant?  Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.”
 

God’s people are often lulled into a false sense of security once we are saved and born again. We may become short-sighted and hard of hearing when it comes to spiritual matters. We take our redemption for granted. We no longer hunger and thirst for truth as we once did. We permit mundane matters, the tests and trials of everyday life, to cloud our vision and interfere with hearing the voice of our Creator.
 
Although we should be continually motivated to serve the Lord in all that we think, say and do, we have grown lazy. We have left our first love and lost our zeal for the things of God. We do not spontaneously share our faith or get excited about what He is doing in our lives as we used to do. We forget that we have divine destinies to fulfill that will impact the fate of the entire human race in the critical days ahead.
 
Our perception is dulled because the Lord has tarried. We think that everything will continue as it has from the beginning. We fail to see the signs or hear God’s warnings to us. We have allowed the cares of this world to overcome us and stagnate our efforts to usher in the Kingdom of God to this earth. It is high time to wake up and sharpen our spiritual faculties once again, so that we can prepare for Christ’s return.
 
We have to get back to the basics of our faith. Prayer, meditation and Bible study will take us into a deeper relationship with our God and enable us to hear from Him more clearly. He has revelation to share with us that will impact all of our lives and change our future. If we are receptive, the Lord will teach us all that we need to know, so that we can take dominion over all of our affairs and rule and reign for all eternity.
 
2Timothy 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.”
 
The Lord will reveal His secrets to His beloved children, if we are ready and willing to perceive the truth and hear from Him. He is longing to show Himself strong in our lives and woo all of mankind to Himself in the critical days that lie ahead. He is a loving father and He wants only what is best for us. If we seek His face and ask for His guidance and direction, we will never be disappointed.
 
Almighty God will show us how to overcome all evil with good, and to take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God even before Jesus Christ returns. He will give us wisdom and understanding to solve our most complex problems and to establish godly standards as the norm. We will confront all wickedness and evil that we see and destroy demonic strongholds that interfere with our progress.
 
We will bring peace, order and stability to all of our affairs and teach all of mankind to dwell in love and unity as brothers and sisters. We will eradicate all poverty and lack and share all of the vast resources of this universe with one another. We will restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance, and cleanse the planet of all defilement so that heaven can ultimately be brought here.
 
Believers will demonstrate the infinite love, mercy and compassion of the Lord for His people, and make salvation to eternal life available to all those who are receptive to it. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ; 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 through the operation of the Holy Spirit.
 
Revelation 3:17-18 “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.”

 
We cannot just rest on our laurels and take our salvation for granted as long as there are any human beings who are still lost in darkness and deception and doomed to perdition because of their plight. We might think that it is sufficient to just be a good person and rely on almighty God to do the rest. The truth is that He is depending on us to win others to our faith and set them free to receive eternal life with all its benefits.
 
Our Lord and Savior is confronting us and challenging our apathy. He is rebuking and chastening us, so that we step into all that we have been called to do. We have divine destinies to fulfill as His followers. The church should be light and salt in this world. We must be godly role models at all times, and share our faith with men, women and children of every race, tongue and nation just as Christ has commissioned us.
 
The fate of all mankind rests with us, and we will be held strictly accountable for all that we think, say and do. We cannot turn our backs on others in good conscience. We must demonstrate zeal and enthusiasm for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and remember who we are in Him. If we diligently try to win others to the Lord, we will be generously rewarded for all of our efforts when Jesus returns to set up His millennial Kingdom.
 
He will share His very own honor and glory with those of us who have been faithful to execute His plans and fulfill His purposes. 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 as kings and priests of God. We will even rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world, and teach others to dwell in love, peace and unity.


Rebellion Has Consequences

2Chronicles 24:19 “Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the LORD; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear.”
 
Human beings were created to be intimate with almighty God and dwell in His very presence for all of eternity. He wants nothing more than to provide for us and protect us from all harm, as any loving father would do. However, Adam’s rebellion interfered with those plans and estranged us from our Creator. We were all sentenced to natural and spiritual death as a result of his transgression.
 
We tend only towards sin and evil when left to our own devices. The Lord has been faithful to reach out to us and show us the truth. He sent many prophets to us over the years to get our attention and draw us back towards Him. However, we have been defiant and rebellious and tuned them out. The consequence is that we are left spiritually blind and deaf, without access to divine guidance and direction.
 
Man makes mistakes that lead to his downfall. We err because we do not know the truth or are unwilling to walk in God’s ways. We think we are wise, yet we lack godly wisdom and understanding that would cause us to prevail over all of our situations and circumstances. We are confused and lack the power to overcome our enemies. They oppress and exploit us with every opportunity that they get.
 
Satan and all of his minions wreak havoc in our lives, and do everything that they possibly can to steal our blessings and estrange us from our God. We are often the victims of their harassment and persecution. The devil clouds our minds with lies and dulls our senses. However, the Lord makes divine wisdom to solve all our complex problems available to us, if we will simply trust Him and seek His input.
 
Ezekiel 12:2 “Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they [are] a rebellious house.”

 
God’s people perish for lack of knowledge and understanding.  We fail to see the truth that is right in front of us, and we often go from bad to worse. We are without hope unless the Lord intervenes to get our attention. He is always showing us things and speaking to us, but we have become dull-witted. We have to get back to basics and repent of our ignorance, so He can direct our paths.
 
We need God’s involvement in our lives. We must be less independent and rely more on Him. He is our source for all good things – spiritual and temporal. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us if we depend on Him to meet all of our needs. He has only our best interest at heart.  If we are open to His words and obedient to do everything that He tells us, we will have many blessings.
 
Each of us must search our hearts to see if we have been stubborn and defiant. Rebellion brings serious consequences. When we walk in God’s ways and adhere to His laws, we will always prosper and have good results in everything that we do. If we choose to go it alone without Him, we will continue to struggle and fail. The choice is up to us; the Lord will never override our free will.

Isaiah 59:9-12 “Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, [but] we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if [we had] no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; [we are] in desolate places as dead [men]. We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but [there is] none; for salvation, [but] it is far off from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions [are] with us; and [as for] our iniquities, we know them;”

 
The Lord has made provision for His people to be reconciled to Him once and for all time. Only our foolish pride and ignorance interfere with His plans for mankind. He sent Jesus Christ to be the light of the world and redeem us from all of our iniquity. Christ did not come to condemn us, but to set us free in the truth. He died to save us from our sins and to restore us to right standing with God.
 
He became sin for us and then suffered its consequences in His own flesh. Through Him, we have become the righteousness of God and entitled to all of His promises. He was poor and disenfranchised, so that we could be made rich and enjoy life in abundance. He was our sacrificial substitute, the chastisement for our peace. He bore all of our infirmities and diseases, so that we could be made whole.
 
If we ignore so great a salvation and persist in our own ways, we will simply perish for all of eternity. We will grope around like the blind, and stumble until we fall. If we refuse to hear the truth, we will go to perdition with all those who are wicked and rebellious. The Lord will be able to do nothing for us if we continue to turn our backs on Him. He will have to abandon us to our own devices.
 
We must repent of all our sins and change direction, if we wish to be saved to eternal life with all its many benefits. We have to accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior and be baptized in His name. We ought to appropriate His righteousness by faith and ask for the baptism in the Holy Spirit. If we do all of these things, we will become new creatures in Christ and heirs to all the promises of God.
 
Proverbs 28:9-10 “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer [shall be] abomination. Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good [things] in possession.”

 
Jesus Christ did not come to this earth to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it. He satisfied all the requirements for man’s redemption with His sacrificial suffering and death on the cross. He, who knew no sin and was perfect in all His ways, actually became sin for us, so that we would not have to endure its penalty of death ourselves. He bought back our innocence with His very own Blood.
 
If we refuse to believe in Christ and all that He accomplished on our behalf, then we will remain estranged from God. Spiritual matters will remain obscure to us, and without faith we will never please Him. The Lord will not be obligated to provide for us or to answer any of our prayers. Rebellion will put a barrier between us that cannot be penetrated by anything that we say and do.
 
Our lives on this earth will be constant struggles and Satan, the enemy of our souls, will be able to wreak havoc with us. He will manage to keep us sick, weak and poor. We will perish for all eternity if we remain defiant and refuse the truth. Our ultimate fate will be banishment to the unquenchable lake of fire, while all the righteous will inherit the Kingdom of almighty God and His saints.
 
Zephaniah 1:17 “And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.  Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.”

 
If we do not wake up and face facts, we will be destroyed in our ignorance and rebellion. We have to see the truth and hear what almighty God is speaking to us. He is warning the entire human race that the days are short. It is not His desire that anyone perishes for lack of knowledge. Without repentance from our sins and redemption through the Blood of Jesus Christ, we will go to perdition.
 
Ours is a jealous God. The Lord has done all that He can to get our attention, but if we deliberately reject Him, He has no choice but to turn His back on us. We have to be aware of the fact that there is no other way to the Father except through the cross. Man can never be righteous in his own strength. If we fail to realize the significance of this, we will suffer eternal condemnation in our sins.
 
The Lord is holy and perfect and no evil can dwell in His presence. If men refuse salvation through Jesus Christ, they will be permanently estranged from almighty God. Those who are righteous and obedient will be gathered into His everlasting Kingdom. However, the rebellious will be cast into the unquenchable lake of fire, where there will be only wailing and gnashing of teeth for all of eternity.

Very soon now, the Lord will visit His wrath and indignation on all the ungodly, and destroy evil off the face of the earth. We have been given ample notice of what is to come. There will be no more second chances given to any of us. Those who have blind eyes and deaf ears will be caught off guard. They will never enter into the Kingdom of almighty God or enjoy any of its many blessings.
 

Hardened Hearts

Hebrews 3:7-12 “Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in [their] heart; and they have not known my ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.”
 
People who have blind eyes and deaf ears when it comes to spiritual matters usually have hardened hearts towards almighty God as well. They do not love and reverence Him as their Creator, nor do they see the importance of trying to know the truth that changes their lives for the better. They are caught up in the world system and they think there will be no long term consequences for their actions.
 
If men have not made Jesus Christ their personal Lord and Savior, they do not have access to His Holy Spirit. They remain spiritually blind and deaf, no matter how much they try to understand His ways. They are without hope for their future and subject to eternal condemnation for their ignorance. It is so simple to be saved to eternal life, yet many still prefer to go it alone without the Lord in their lives.
 
They presume on God’s mercy and grace to the point that they not only hurt, but also anger Him. It is a fearful thing to incur the wrath of the living God. He has no intention of rewarding any sort of wickedness and rebellion. Jesus Christ will soon return and judge all of mankind based on their works. He will cast all those who are defiant and unrepentant into the unquenchable lake of fire for all eternity.
 
Jeremiah 7:23-24 “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels [and] in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”

 
Even believers can err in hearing from God and seeing what He has planned for us. It is possible for any of us to develop a hard heart that resists correction. We cannot be selfish and have our own personal agendas. The Lord expects us to obey all that He directs us to do and to present our bodies as living sacrifices to Him. We have divine destinies to fulfill that require our active participation.
 
We must remain teachable and subject to divine authority, if we wish to serve the Lord and His people effectively. We have to sanctify ourselves of all carnal lusts and consecrate our lives to helping others, while advancing the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. The fate of all mankind rests with us, and if we are not willing and obedient we will never be able to complete our task.
 
It is critical that we have eyes to see and ears to hear all that the Lord wants to reveal to us, so that we can be totally successful in setting men free in the truth. If we are not watchful, we will go backwards instead of forward, and others will be forced to pick up our slack. God’s people have great feats to accomplish in Jesus’ name, and that requires us to be attentive to all that He directs us to do.
 
The Lord will work in us and through us in the days to come. He will imbue us with divine power and authority to act as His ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. We will be godly role models to others at all times, and share our faith with enthusiasm. We will baptize countless numbers of souls to eternal life, and make redemption available to all men, women and children who are receptive.  
 
Zechariah 7:11-13 “But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Yea, they made their hearts [as] an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts. Therefore it is come to pass, [that] as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts:”

 
Many will resist our efforts to persuade them in the truth to their own detriment. Almighty God is not mocked. He knows if we are open to all that He wants to teach us. If we disobey His commands to us, He will be compelled to reject us. The Lord only answers the prayers of those who are humble, contrite and sincere. He wants a people who love and obey Him totally and completely.
 
He sent His very own Son to this earth to teach us His ways and to redeem us of all our sins. If we refuse to believe the truth, we will be doomed to eternal condemnation. We cannot blind our eyes to what He shows us or stop our ears from hearing His Word without repercussions in our lives. The Lord is infinitely patient and compassionate to our needs but He also insists on our obedience.
 
Sooner or later all of us will cry out to God for one thing or another. As the Day of the Lord rapidly approaches, we will seek His mercy and forgiveness in earnest. It may very well be that we are too late to repent. If we have defied Him and walked in our own stubborn ways, He will leave us to our own devices. Our God is under no obligation to provide for the rebellious and hard hearted.
 
Romans 2:5-8 “But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,”

 
The Lord wants to bless us and satisfy all of our needs in abundance. He will soon gather all of the righteous to Himself for all of eternity. He plans on coming to this earth realm and dwelling with us in the Kingdom of God. It is not His desire that any man perishes. He is doing everything possible to attract us to Him and persuade us to repent of all of our hard heartedness.
 
We have the perfect opportunity to change the course of our lives and inherit all of God’s promises to us. If we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we actually become new creatures in Him. Our sin is no longer held against us; we are redeemed from its curse. Jesus died so that we could be set free, and receive the gift of eternal life with all its many benefits.
 
He was our sacrificial substitute in fulfillment of the law, the total atonement required to pay for the sins of all mankind – past, present and future. We are the righteousness of God through faith in Him. We have become sons and daughters, joint-heirs with Jesus Himself. We are now seated with Him in heavenly places, and the Lord will withhold no good thing from our lives.
 
If we refuse salvation and persist in doing evil, we will eventually be held accountable for our actions. The Lord will judge all of mankind to determine who has been faithful and who has been rebellious. All those who have been obedient will be blessed, but those who are unyielding will be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire, where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

 
Discerning Good vs. Evil

Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
 
Men inherently have the ability to discern good from evil. We are created in the very image and likeness of almighty God. There is a divine spark resident in each and every one of us. The spiritual side of a man can easily determine when he is doing good and when he is committing evil, but Satan, the enemy of our souls, often blinds us to the truth and clouds our vision and hearing.
 
He wants to separate us from our Creator and he will stop at nothing to confuse and confound us. He tries to persuade us that God is indifferent to our sin, and that He will not punish us for our offenses. He dulls our conscience with his lies and tries to convince us that good is evil and evil is good. His goal is to rob us of our birthright and put a wedge in our relationship with God.
 
The enemy will stop at nothing to steal, kill and destroy all that is good in us. He will subject us to strong temptation and then tell us that we have failed when we sin. The only solution to our dilemma is to surrender ourselves to God and accept His gift of redemption through Jesus Christ. When we repent of our sin and confess Jesus as Lord, we begin to see and hear clearly.
 
Romans 7:18-20 “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but [how] to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.”

 
The sin that dwells in us before we are born again to eternal life is powerful and destructive.  It will kill us. The Bibles says explicitly that the wages of sin are death, and we cannot ignore that reality. Unless we make Jesus our Lord and Savior and appropriate His very own righteousness by faith, we will perish in our ignorance and rebellion despite what we might try to do to prevent that.
 
Jesus Christ served as our sacrificial substitute. He took on all of our sin as if it were His very own. He suffered and died an agonizing death, so that we would not have to endure the same fate. He risked alienation from His heavenly Father, so we could be made the righteousness of God; be restored to right standing with Him; and be accepted as His beloved sons and daughters.
 
The Blood of Jesus continues to cleanse us even today. It covers all of our sins – past, present and future. Almighty God no longer imputes our sin guilt to us for any reason. When He looks at us, He sees Jesus in all of His perfection and there is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us, temporal or spiritual. The Lord will imbue us with power and reveal our divine destinies to us.
 
Our God will strengthen and edify us if we consecrate our lives to Him. He will share His very own wisdom, knowledge and understanding with us. We will rise up as His kings and priests, so that we can serve His people. We will be able to perceive the whole truth and discern good and evil as never before. We will overcome the world and everything in it, as we are destined to do.
  
Deuteronomy 30:15-18 “See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, [and that] ye shall not prolong [your] days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

 
We have eternal callings and divine destinies as the children of almighty God. We must walk as Christ walked and be godly role models to others. The entire world is caught up in a web of darkness and deception, and we must do all that we can to rescue men from their bondage to sin and evil. We must preach Christ crucified in all of His glory, so that all mankind has an equal opportunity to be saved.
 
We each have a choice to make. Will we choose good versus evil, and serve almighty God as we have been called to do from the very foundation of the world, or will we go to perdition? If we have made Christ the Lord of our lives, we are assured that we will ultimately succeed in our battle against wickedness and sin. However, if we decide to remain blind and deaf, lost in darkness and deception, we will perish.
 
We cannot have it both ways. Our salvation is an all or nothing proposition. We must see the truth and hear what God is speaking to us by way of warning, or be defeated in our own ignorance and rebellion. We cannot take half measures. We must be faithful and obedient to do all that the Lord asks of us, or suffer the consequences. If we are stubborn and rebellious, we will spend all eternity on the outside looking in.
 

The Lord Blinds Eyes and Stops Ears

Isaiah 44:18 “They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; [and] their hearts, that they cannot understand.”
 
God is not easily fooled, nor will He ever beg us to listen to Him. He knows who His people are and who will remain rebellious. He does not share the mysteries of the Kingdom with just anyone. He only reveals Himself to those who value His guidance and direction, and accord Him all the deference and respect that He deserves. He does not waste His time on the wicked, who defy Him and persist in their evil ways.
 
All of mankind has been given the same opportunity to be saved to eternal life and be freed in the truth. Our redemption through Jesus Christ is without prejudice. He died to redeem the entire human race from all of their sins for all time. We need only believe in Him, and our lives will be forever changed. There is no reason why any of us should ever go to perdition. But, sadly enough, some will still resist salvation.
 
Men reveal their true identity through their words and actions. There are children of God and children of this world who live side by side and co-habit this planet. That causes a continual stress and tension in our environment. There is an ongoing battle of good versus evil raging all around us. God’s people are challenged to walk in His ways and live according to His perfect standards of righteousness and justice.
 
Those who are in the world live according to their own subjective standards. Many may try to be good people, but they will still perish if they are spiritually blind and deaf. There is no way to please almighty God unless we turn from our sins and accept Christ as our Savior. When we do, the Lord reveals Himself to us. He makes His wisdom and understanding available to any and all of us whose hearts are yielded.
 
Romans 11:8 “(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.”

 
Men of this world are in a deep slumber that is interfering with the truth being revealed. Those who do evil are blind and deaf, and will continue in their wicked ways until God intervenes. Only the righteous will shine with the light of Christ in the days ahead. The Lord knows who His people are and He will exclude us from the punishment that is coming on all those who rebel against Him.
 
Unfortunately, He will leave the stubborn and ignorant to their own devices. They will seek the truth and never find it because their hearts are hardened. They will stumble and fall, and ultimately be destroyed by the fiery wrath and indignation of almighty God Himself. The Lord will have no recourse but to permit them to go to everlasting condemnation because they rejected the truth.
 
Very soon now, Jesus Christ will return in all His power and glory. He will wreak vengeance on all those who are rebellious, and destroy the enemies of God in one fell swoop. He will judge both men and angels to determine who has been obedient and who deserves never ending punishment. No one will be given a second chance. His decisions will be fair and just, but final and permanent.
 
If we have been faithful to believe in Christ and do all that He commands us to do, we will have nothing to fear. He will gather us to Himself for all of eternity in the Kingdom of God. However, those who are unrepentant and steadfastly reject almighty God will not fare so well. They will be banished from His holy presence to the unquenchable lake of fire with all the other wrongdoers.
 
Deuteronomy 28:28-29 “The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save [thee].”

 
If we fail to obey God and keep all of His commandments to us, we will be forever cursed. The Lord will be compelled to smite us with madness and spiritual blindness, so that we are constantly searching for truth. We will seek the right path, but never find it if we have been rebellious and succumbed to evil. Nothing that we do will ever prosper, if we have abandoned our God.
 
The Lord is not obligated to provide for those who reject Him and walk in their own ways. He owes us nothing if we transgress His laws and disobey His moral absolutes. His protection will be lifted off our lives and we will be left to make our own way. We will go to perdition if that is what we choose, and no one will save us. If we are unrepentant, we will reap what we sow.
 
Our enemy, the devil, will be able to oppress us and hold us in perpetual bondage if we defy the Lord. His goal is to steal our blessings and estrange us from God whenever and however he can. He is jealous of our birthright and determined to keep us from inheriting all of the blessings that the Lord has stored up for us. Satan will eventually overcome us so we are totally destroyed.
 
He is relentless in his battle against mankind and he will stop at nothing to cause us heartache and pain. The only way to circumvent his attacks is to seek the Lord and repent of all evil. If we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be protected from all harm and preserved until His coming. No man or devil will be able to cheat us out of all that almighty God has planned.


To Perceive Or Not To Perceive

Isaiah 6:9-10 “And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.”

The Lord has sent many messengers to the human race to show them the truth. Unfortunately, most men hear what they say, but refuse to act on it. They cannot perceive the deep things of God and He is forced to write them off in their ignorance, in case they should turn to Him for healing and restoration. The Lord only reveals Himself to those who are ready and willing to see and listen.
 
We have no excuse for resistance of any kind. There is no future in lawlessness and rebellion. The Lord will forsake those who defy Him. Although we might be exposed to His wisdom, we will never be able to understand it. He will permit us to remain spiritually blind and deaf if we are stubborn. We will simply be relegated to eternal condemnation if we ignore our God and tune Him out.
 
Salvation to eternal life will not be available to those who reject it. Blessings of peace and protection will be withheld from those who reject the Lord. Men who get caught up in their own foolish pride will never know the truth. They will stumble and fall at every turn, and no one will be able to help them. The Lord will not provide any blessings to those who forego His way of doing things.
 
We must warn all of mankind that disobedience has destruction as its only reward. Nothing but God’s wrath and indignation will be forthcoming for the wicked. Jesus Christ will destroy all of the ungodly and their ungodliness upon His return. Soon there will be no more evil left on the face of this earth. The Lord will purge it with fire, so that nothing remains to defile either God or man.
 
Deuteronomy 29:4 “Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.”

 
Almighty God has called out to all of mankind over the years, but many have turned a deaf ear to His appeal. He wants only what is best for us, but He will never force His ways on anyone. That would infringe on our free will, and the Lord will not do that. He will permit us to endure eternal punishment rather than impose His moral standards on any of us.
 
The entire human race has access to eternal salvation, but a vast number of men, women and children still choose to reject the truth and do what is evil in God’s eyes. The Lord has continually withheld wisdom and understanding from them, because they are unwilling to discern spiritual matters. They follow Satan as the god of this world, but reject and defy the one true God.
 
Only a select few have been called from the foundation of the world to learn the truth and to fellowship intimately with the Lord. Our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, and our salvation is assured. We have been specifically chosen to be sanctified by the Blood of Jesus Christ Himself, and we will inherit all of the blessings of the Kingdom of God as a result.
 
While the Lord has created every human being in His very own image and likeness, only a righteous remnant will remain when all is said and done. We are the sons and daughters of God and all of creation will be subject to us once again as it was in the Garden of Eden. We are returning to our roots and we will dwell in a literal paradise on this earth for all of eternity.
 
Mark 4:12 “And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all [these] things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and [their] sins should be forgiven them.”

 
Jesus Christ explained to His followers that not everyone would enter into His everlasting Kingdom. Those who were not born again from above would be disqualified. Jesus was not concerned about the fate of the rebellious. He carefully disguised the truth from those who rejected His words. He was unwilling to make eternal life available to those who would not value it.
 
The Lord has cursed those who are committed to sin and evil. They are not able to understand spiritual matters because they remain unwilling to repent of their sins. They will be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire for all of eternity because of their hard heartedness. If they cannot or will not perceive what God wants from us, they will perish in their ignorance.
 
The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems. It will settle all scores and level all playing fields. God’s people will rise to the top like cream on milk, and they will take dominion over the entire earth. The Lord will make certain that He supplies all of our needs and protects us from all harm, as He has always promised.
 
Those who are still lost in sin and darkness will eventually go to perdition. The Lord will not permit them to see the truth and act on it, in the event that they might ultimately repent and try to steal our blessings. He has reserved them for the day of judgment, so that they receive the consequences of their rebellion. Only the righteous will ever enter into His awesome presence.
 
Psalm 119:18 “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.”

 
If we have repented of all sins and accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we will soon be able to perceive the whole truth and hear from God on a regular basis. We now have unmerited favor, or grace, with our Father and all things become possible to us. If we are willing and obedient, He will open our eyes and unstop our ears so that we can communicate with Him.
 
We should ask the Lord to baptize us with His Holy Spirit so that we can know everything that He wishes to reveal to us. He has glorious things that He wants to share with His people, but our limited, finite minds cannot grasp them. It takes the Holy Spirit of almighty God operating in and through us to filter through divine wisdom and knowledge and process it for our understanding.
 
Believers have to learn to see what God sees and think like He thinks, so that our lives are transformed. We must adopt His ways and actually walk in them, if we are to be victorious over all of our situations and circumstances. The Lord wants us to have a distinct advantage over our foes, so that it is possible for us to rule and reign in this world and in the everlasting Kingdom to come.
 
Whatever we need will be given to us in abundance, if we seek the Lord and rely on Him as our source for all good things. He has great plans for His people, but we must submit to His guidance and direction in everything that we think, say and do. We can overcome all wickedness and evil with good, and advance the Kingdom of God everywhere, if we will only stay tuned in to Him.
 

 
Chapter 2 – God Wants To Share Truth With Us

Isaiah 43:8-11 “Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, [It is] truth. Ye [are] my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I [am] he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, [even] I, [am] the LORD; and beside me [there is] no saviour.”
 
Almighty God created man in His very own image and likeness to fellowship intimately with Him in paradise for all eternity. However, Adam’s transgression in the Garden of Eden spoiled the Lord’s plans. We were all doomed to eternal punishment as a result of our ancestor’s sin. We lost our right standing with God and were sentenced to both natural and spiritual death as a result.
 
The Lord is calling out to all of mankind and He is waiting to see who responds to Him. He desires that every man, woman and child be redeemed to eternal life and be reconciled with Him once again. Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear will be blessed in the critical days to come. However, the hard hearted and those who are dull of spirit will eventually go to perdition.
 
The entire human race must have an equal opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and repent of all their sinfulness. If we refuse to do so, we seal our own fate. The Lord will permit us to be destroyed if that is what we choose. He will not force Himself on any of us. We have free will that entitles us to determine our own destiny. We can pursue righteousness or perish in our iniquity.
 
There is no God like our God – no other Savior besides Jesus Christ. There is no other name under heaven by which men can be saved. If we refuse to repent and believe in all that He accomplished for us, we will ultimately be doomed to never ending punishment for our wickedness and evil. None of us can ever be righteous in our own strength. Sin is sin, and the penalty for it is death.
 
Psalm 85:8-9 “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.”

 
Our Creator is doing all that He can to reach those who are still lost in sin and darkness. He is infinitely merciful and compassionate to our human frailty, but equally insistent on our repentance. There is no way that we can be righteous in His eyes unless we believe the truth. All of us have sinned and fallen short of His glory. We need redemption by the merits of His very own Son, Jesus Christ.
 
If we turn from our wicked ways and accept Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we will be saved to eternal life with all of its many benefits. Jesus served as our sacrificial substitute when He took on all of our sins and then paid the penalty of death for them with His own flesh. Through His perfect obedience on the cross, we were set free from all of our transgressions – past, present and future.
 
The Lord no longer imputes our sin guilt to us. We are righteous by faith and have become His actual sons and daughters. We are joint-heirs with Jesus, and seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. We will one day inherit the everlasting Kingdom of God. No man or devil will be able to steal our birthright. It is our personal guarantee for righteousness and faithfulness.
 
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether [it be] good, or whether [it be] evil.”

 
It is relatively simple to receive the gift of eternal life and be blessed with all of the promises of God for righteousness. All that we need do is repent of our stubbornness and rebellion and turn towards Him once again. If we fear the Lord and choose to be restored to right standing with Him, we will accept His offer of salvation through Jesus Christ and adopt His ways as our very own.
 
We must keep all of the commandments and walk in love as we are called to do. We ought to present our bodies as living sacrifices to be used in service to the Lord and His people. We must imitate the laid down life of Christ Himself and fulfill our divine destinies as the sons of God. We have to share our faith with power and conviction and set others free from their bondage to sin.
 
Believers will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God, and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We will preach the Gospel, heal the sick, and cast out demons. We will even raise the dead back to life once again, just as Christ did. Nothing will ever be impossible to us if we minister to God’s people through the operation of His Holy Spirit.
 
Very soon now, Jesus will return to judge all men and angels to determine who deserves rewards and who will be punished. All of our works will be brought to the light. Nothing will remain secret that has not been manifested. The righteous will be blessed for all of eternity in the Kingdom of God, while the wicked and rebellious are forever banished to the unquenchable lake of fire.
 
Isaiah 29:18-19 “And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. The meek also shall increase [their] joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.”

 
Almighty God will work through the people who are called by His holy name to rescue the entire human race from potential destruction. We will partner with Him in advancing the Kingdom of God on earth, just as it is in heaven. We will offer salvation to one and all, and baptize countless souls for Jesus Christ. We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good, as we are called to do.
 
The Lord will demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and compassion for all of mankind. Every man, woman and child will be exposed to the truth and given an opportunity to be redeemed to eternal life. No righteous person will perish for ignorance. The Lord will open blind eyes and unstop deaf ears. Very soon now, all knees will bend and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus is Lord over all of creation.”
 
He will be a fair Judge and a righteous King, and share His honor and glory with those who have served Him. 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 almighty God. We will teach all men to dwell in love, peace and unity, and rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.
 
Isaiah 43:18-21 “Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert. The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen. This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.”

 
The Kingdom of God will be a paradise on the earth for all those who are righteous and faithful. The Lord will actually come and reside with His people who are called by His holy name. He will provide all our needs and take vengeance on all our enemies. He will cast Satan and all his minions into the bottomless pit and banish wrongdoers to the unquenchable lake of fire.
 
The Lord will bind up all our wounds and heal all of our pain and suffering. He will vindicate all wrongs done to His people and restore everything that has been taken from us. There is no good thing that we will ever lack in His awesome presence. All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful, and its resources will be at our disposal as they once were in the Garden of Eden.
 
Everyone will learn to be righteous. God’s laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity. There will be order and stability in all of our affairs. We will build beautiful homes and raise crops for our food. We will see our children and our children’s children for all the many generations to come.
 
Jesus Christ will change these mortal bodies that are susceptible to disease and death into new, glorious, resurrection forms like His very own. We will live forever in good health, perpetual youth and energetic vitality, and serve the Lord all the days of our lives. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth and give Him all the praise, gratitude and honor that He deserves.

 
The Truth That Sets Us Free

Ephesians 4:20-21 “But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:”
 
We must all get back to the fundamental truths that undergird our faith.  We were once lost in sin and estranged from God because of Adam’s transgression in the Garden of Eden. All of mankind was subject to spiritual and natural death as a result. There was no way that any of us could be restored to our original relationship with our Creator without His divine intervention.
 
Jesus Christ was almighty God in all respects, yet He came to this earth as a mere man to reconcile us back to Himself for all time. He took on human form and was born of a woman, to satisfy the terms of the law. Jesus was perfect in every way, but He bore all of our sins as His very own. He actually became a curse for us, so that all of mankind could be blessed by His obedience.
 
The Blood of Jesus Christ is the only thing that stands between our sins and never ending condemnation. It continually cleanses us of all our sin guilt – past, present and future. If we appropriate Christ’s very own righteousness by our faith, all things become brand new for us. Our minds are gradually renewed in the truth, and our behavior is transformed until it becomes godly.
 
We learn to be heavenly minded instead of land-locked and eternal things start to take precedence in our lives. We focus on the Lord and how we can best serve Him and his people. We sanctify ourselves and walk like Christ Himself walked on the earth. We embrace our divine destinies and begin to fully appreciate all that has been done for us by our Lord and Savior.
 
John 1:17 “For the law was given by Moses, [but] grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.”

 
Christ loved us so much that He served as our sacrificial substitute. He suffered and died an agonizing death, so that we would not have to endure the same fate. If we sincerely believe in Him and accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior, we are saved to eternal life with all its many benefits. We are restored to right standing with God and accepted in the beloved as His very own sons and daughters.
 
There is no way to the Father except through the Son. None of us can be righteous in his own strength. Without faith, it is impossible to please God and receive all of His promises. However, if we are born again in our spirits, we become the righteousness of almighty God and our sin guilt is no longer imputed to us for any reason. When the Lord looks at us now, He sees Jesus in all of His perfection.
 
We now have grace, or unmerited favor, with almighty God. Everything is as it was intended to be from the very creation itself. The Lord loves us with a deep abiding love that defies all logic and even boggles the imagination. His greatest desire is to provide for all our needs in abundance, and to protect us from all harm. He longs to share all the mysteries of the universe with us, so we can rule and reign.
 
Almighty God will sharpen our spiritual faculties, so that we can see what He sees and think like He thinks. He wants us to be able to discern good from evil and judge all matters that pertain to godliness. He will change us from the inside out, so that we are eventually filled with all the fullness of God. Our goal is to become like our Lord and Savior and do the things that He did when He walked among us.
 
Colossians 3:1-4 “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, [who is] our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.”

 
Our regeneration is a gradual process. When we are born again, we repent of our sins; confess Jesus as Lord; and are baptized in water and His Holy Spirit.  We are now dead to sin and alive in Christ. Our spirits are perfect before Him. We share in His resurrection power, and all things become new for us. We are finally able to see and hear the truth, and to discern good from evil.
 
However, we must set our affection on eternal things and continue to sanctify ourselves of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions. We were bought with a dear price, and we cannot allow ourselves to be drawn back into the ways of the world. We are destined for greatness, and we have a sacred charge that has been given to us. We are co-laborers with Christ to rescue those who are still lost.
 
The fate of all mankind depends on our commitment to the Lord. We must serve as godly role models to every man, woman and child. We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good. We will advance the Kingdom of God everywhere that we go, and in everything that we think, say and do. We will establish the government of almighty God on the earth, as it is in heaven.
 
There will finally be peace, order and stability in our lives. Wars, violence and conflict will no longer be named among us. There will be no more poverty and lack, as men learn to share their resources with one another. Oppression and exploitation will disappear as social injustice is abolished. Very soon now, all men will be treated with the fairness, dignity and respect that they deserve.
 
1John 5:4-6 “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, [even] Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.”

 
We are new creatures in Christ. Once we are born again and baptized with water and the Holy Spirit, all things become possible to us. We are able to rule and reign in this life, and in the Kingdom to come, for all of eternity. We will overcome all evil with good and walk in our divine destinies as we should. We will glorify almighty God in everything we think, say and do.
 
The Gospel of Jesus Christ will be preached to all the nations of the world. We must make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child. We have to teach others to hear from God and see the truth, just as we have done. It is only by faith in Jesus that any of us can be redeemed from our sins. If we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, we will be saved.
 
Our lives will be changed as never before. We will be restored to our right relationship with almighty God. The Lord will reveal wisdom and knowledge to us that sets us above our peers. We will succeed in everything we set out to do by the operation of His Holy Spirit that is at work in us and through us. We will have divine power available to meet all of our needs.
 
The followers of Jesus Christ will share our faith with zeal and conviction and work miracles, signs and wonders to attract all men to the Lord. We will lay hands on the sick and they will be healed. We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil and set them free in the truth. We will even raise the dead back to life once again, just as Jesus Christ once did.


The Lord Causes Us To See And Hear

Exodus 4:11 “And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?”
 
We have been created in the very image and likeness of God, and He wants only what is best for each and every one of us. However, some of us are not living up to our potential or utilizing all of our capabilities. We have physical senses that are dulled by the world around us and our spiritual faculties are waning. We desperately need to get back to the basics and reassess our priorities.
 
The Lord is our source for all good things. If we seek His guidance and direction and follow all of His advice, our perception will be heightened and our lives will improve in every area. We desperately need the Lord to sharpen our visual and auditory acuity so that we can see and hear what He does. We need supernatural abilities to be able to survive in the critical days to come.
 
Without God’s direct intervention, we are nothing. We flounder in all of our ways and are victimized by both men and devils. We are tossed to and fro, and can never seem to accomplish all that we set out to do. If we wish to overcome all evil with good, then we have to learn to discern what God does in all of our situations and circumstances. His insight will make all the difference.
 
Jesus Christ gave good gifts to His followers, so we could resume His ministry on the earth. We can begin to think like He did and accomplish great feats in His mighty name. He has commissioned us to go forth and make disciples of all men. If we need wisdom and revelation, it is readily available to us.  All we need do is ask and believe we receive enlightenment through His Holy Spirit.

Proverbs 20:12 “The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.”

 
Only almighty God can give us eyes that see and ears that hear. He knows who His people are and He will endow us with all that we require to remain in constant fellowship with Him. He will make certain that He reveals Himself to us, so that we can have good success in all that we do. We will see everything He shows us, and hear all that He tells us, by His infinite mercy and grace.
 
The Lord never leaves us or forsakes us. He is always reaching out to us, sharing His wisdom and revelation. However, we are often the ones who fail to respond. We sometimes tune Him out or neglect to act on what He tells us to do. When that happens, we always suffer repercussions. Unless we hear from God, we cannot rule and reign in this life as we are destined to do.

It is up to us to sharpen our spiritual senses and remain alert to all that the Lord has for us. He warns us of impending danger; encourages us when we are feeling low; and gives us vital information so that we can solve all our problems. His input is the deciding factor in all of our victories. He guides and directs us in every situation and circumstance and even reveals the future to us.
 
Isaiah 32:3-4 “And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken. The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.”

 
One word from God, one poignant insight, is all that it takes to cause us to prevail. If we exercise our ability to discern spiritual matters clearly, we will have a distinct advantage over others. We will acquire wisdom and knowledge of even complex topics. We will develop understanding of all things through revelation that can come only from the mind of Christ that operates in us as born again believers. We will learn to think like God thinks and implement His will on earth as it is in heaven.
 
With God all things are possible, but without Him in our lives, we can do nothing of any lasting value. We must rely on Him to keep us sharp and tuned in to what He wishes to share with us. We should listen for that small, still voice that speaks to us in the night season and the day of our worst trouble. The Lord will always communicate with His people, despite what is going on in our environment to oppose it. He wants us to have the edge over our enemies and heightened perception in all that we do.
 
Our Creator reveals Himself through His Word, as well as through inner impressions that minister directly to our spirits. He speaks through others and His anointed messages have real power inherent in them. If we do what God explicitly tells us to do, we will always succeed in anything we attempt. Plus, the more we train our physical senses to receive from Him, the more divine revelation will be given to us. We will grasp deep mysteries of our faith, and be able to share them with those around us.
 
Our eyes will never grow dim if we are continually using our spiritual vision. Our ears will never be stopped if we are using them to hear from God. Our hearts will never be hardened if we maintain ongoing dialogue with our Maker. We will continue to receive fresh knowledge and perfect understanding, as it is needed, and be able to apply it to our own lives. We will even be able to speak what God speaks, so we can operate in all the divine power and authority that has been purchased on our behalf.
 
Job 13:1-3 “Lo, mine eye hath seen all [this], mine ear hath heard and understood it. What ye know, [the same] do I know also: I [am] not inferior unto you. Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.”

 
The Lord wants to fellowship intimately with us, but we have to develop and maintain the channels of communication and be open to Him. We must remain alert to His voice and willing to do everything that He directs us to do. If we focus on Him instead of our problems and deficiencies, we will always receive supernatural solutions to all the perplexities that we encounter.
 
Almighty God is not a distant deity who has abandoned and forsaken us. He wants to be involved in the minutest details of our lives. We should seek His advice in everything that we do, so that we can minimize our stress and maximize our efforts. He will fight all our battles and protect us from harm. He seeks to do only good things for His people and will supply all of our needs.
 
Our heavenly Father desires to reveal deep mysteries to His beloved sons and daughters. However, we must be mature in our faith and zealous to hear from Him. We have to spend quality time in His presence and search His Word for hidden truths that are unveiled only to the diligent. Our time will be well spent when God tells us things that impact our lives for all of eternity.


Blessed To See And Hear

Matthew 13:15-16 “For this people's heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous [men] have desired to see [those things] which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and to hear [those things] which ye hear, and have not heard [them].”
 
There are children of God and natural men who dwell side by side. They are distinctly different from one another and known by their fruits. The Lord’s sons and daughters are constantly seeking His face and desire to hear from Him, while those who are caught up in the world system are focused on material things. They do not turn to the Lord for guidance and direction in their affairs, so that He convert and heal them.
 
Men of this world are so caught up in their own pride that they do not see the truth or hear from God on a regular basis. Their hearts have become hardened towards Him and He will eventually write them off if they fail to repent and seek His companionship. The Lord never forces Himself on anyone. We can reject Him if we choose to do so, but He has no obligation to provide for those who are indifferent towards Him.
 
The blessings of God are reserved only for those who are devoted and faithful. If we have been born again and redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, we have unmerited favor or grace with God. We are righteous by faith, and entitled to receive all His promises. He will reveal Himself to us and supply all of our needs in abundance. He will protect us from all evil and deliver us from every form of bondage and oppression.
 
We will receive wisdom and revelation to solve all of our problems. The Lord will lead and guide us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we never stray from the path He intends for us. We will rise up in our divine destinies and embrace our eternal callings to minister to His people as we should. Nothing will be impossible to us. Our God will equip us to accomplish great feats and to usher in His everlasting Kingdom.
 
Romans 11:5-8 “Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then [is it] no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if [it be] of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.”

 
While we are blessed to see the truth and hear what God has to speak to us, it is definitely possible to drift away from our heavenly Father and become insensitive to Him like His chosen people have done. When we do, we always seem to feel a void in our lives. If we fail to communicate with Him, we lack His insight and wisdom, and struggle to deal with our own problems. We have to rely on our own resources to meet our needs if we tune God out. That puts us in a tough place.
 
Fortunately, we can always repent and have all of our rights and privileges reinstated. We are a righteous remnant, saved by grace, and destined to be instrumental as ambassadors for the Kingdom of God in these last days. The Lord will imbue us with divine power and authority to act in His stead. We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good. We will establish godly standards of peace, order and stability and bring heaven itself to this earth as we are destined to do.
 
Believers in the Lord, Jesus Christ, will make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation of the world, including Israel. We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to repent and receive Christ as their King. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and baptize countless souls in His mighty name. We will teach others how to communicate directly with the Lord, so that they can prevail in this life and in the Kingdom to come.
 
Luke 10:21-24 “In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and [he] to whom the Son will reveal [him]. And he turned him unto [his] disciples, and said privately, Blessed [are] the eyes which see the things that ye see: For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard [them].”

 
The followers of Jesus Christ enjoy special rights and privileges that have not been made available to any other generation. We are called and elect to glorify Him in ways that others have only dreamed were possible up until now. We are blessed to have eyes to see and ears to hear the whole truth. The Lord reveals His deepest secrets and mysteries to us.
 
The sons and daughters of almighty God have divine destinies to fulfill in the critical days that lie ahead. We will penetrate the darkness that enshrouds the entire world and advance the Kingdom of God, just as the Lord plans and purposes. We are bringing heaven’s way of doing things to this earth, and the Lord will equip us to accomplish great things in His name.
 
We will share our faith with power and conviction, and rescue countless numbers of souls from their bondage to sin and evil. We will make salvation to eternal life available to all those who are receptive. 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 again, just as Jesus Christ used to do.
 
All of creation will be restored to its original beauty and balance through our efforts. We will command perfect harmony to all plants and animals and regulate the climate to be temperate and predictable. There will be no more predatory spirit, nor environmental pollution to defile our planet, no more natural disasters that can cause death and destruction in their wake.
 
Isaiah 50:4-5 “The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to [him that is] weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned. The Lord GOD hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.”

 
If we are zealous for the things of God, we will never be disappointed. He will reveal Himself to us and show us how to rescue His people from condemnation. He expects that we love Him and put Him first, and then everything will be added to us. We will rise up as His kings and priests and gather all of the righteous to Him in the everlasting Kingdom of God if we are obedient to do what He directs us to do.
 
We will confront all world governments to make certain that they treat others with fairness, dignity and respect. We will eliminate all wars, violence and conflict in our relationships. We will establish peace, order and stability as the normal, godly standards by which all men conduct themselves. We will persuade those of affluence to share their resources, so that poverty and lack become things of the past.
 
There will be no more disease and death to torment any of us. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk. We will cast out demons and destroy all the Satanic strongholds that impede our efforts. We will teach all of mankind that God loves them with a deep abiding love, mercy and compassion. We will give them hope and confidence for their future.


Hearing With Our Hearts

Ezekiel 3:10 “Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.”
 
The Lord always has a reason for His communication with us. We were created in His very image and likeness to exercise dominion. He wants to reveal valuable insight that will protect us from harm and cause us to prosper. We must learn to think like God thinks; see what He sees; hear what He hears; and speak what He speaks, so that we can be successful in this world and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity.
 
What goes in our eyes and ears ultimately sinks deep down in our hearts and is reflected by our actions. We start to speak and act based on what we have seen and heard. If we subject ourselves to only worldly knowledge and public opinion, that will negatively influence us; cause us to err; and rob us of our blessings in the long run. We cannot put garbage in our minds and hearts and expect that we will have good results.
 
We must always guard what we see and hear and make certain that it lines up with the Word of God, so that our behavior meets godly standards and we have good success in all that we do. What God reveals to His people is powerful and able to impact our lives as nothing else can. We should seek His input in everything that we think, say and do. He has only our best interest in mind, and He will never lead His people astray.
 
The Lord will show us what He plans and purposes, so that we can partner with Him in fulfilling His goals. He desires that all of mankind be redeemed to eternal life, and He has chosen us to be His representatives in accomplishing this. He wants to gather all the righteous to Himself for all eternity. He will lead and guide us, so that we can be instrumental in advancing the Kingdom of God on this earth, just as it is in heaven.
 
Proverbs 18:15 “The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.”

 
We are servants of the Lord, ambassadors for His Kingdom, and we must submit ourselves to His intense training, so that we can be effective in everything that we are called to do. We should seek divine guidance and direction before we venture out to interact with His people. If we hear from almighty God Himself, we will acquire valuable wisdom and knowledge to share with others.
 
The Lord will equip us to accomplish great feats in the critical days to come, through the power of His Holy Spirit. We will receive insight to reach all men, women and children in every race, tongue and nation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He will help us to acquire skills that impact the fate of all mankind. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead back to life.
 
Nothing will be impossible to us if we remain tuned in to the Lord and what He has to reveal to us. He will cause us to overcome all evil with good and establish godly principles of peace, order and stability in all of our affairs. We will destroy demonic strongholds that impede our progress or interfere with our work, and bring God’s way of doing things to the earth, just as it is in heaven.
 
Deuteronomy 32:46 “And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.”

 
We need to share what God reveals to us with our children and our children’s children. It is important to take His written Word and oral tradition to heart and communicate it effectively to others. The Lord wants to have an intimate relationship with all of mankind and we ought to share that good news with everyone we meet. He is not a distant God who is cold and forbidding; He loves us with a deep abiding love.

It is vital that all generations know that our heavenly Father is good and always willing to fellowship with His people. He is constantly speaking to us and revealing Himself. The Lord’s mercy and kindness are never far from us. He has made redemption to eternal life available to every man, woman and child in every nation of the world. Very soon now, He will gather us to Himself as He always planned.
 
Heaven itself is coming to this earth in the Kingdom of almighty God. The Lord is eager and willing to dwell with men. However, we have to be sanctified in the truth and obedient to all of His commandments, so that we will be able to enter into His holy presence and inherit all that He has in store for us. We will have peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom forever more.
 
The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems. We will dwell in love, peace and unity with both men and angels. There will be no more wars and conflict, nor death and destruction, no bondage and oppression, or poverty and lack ever again. All of creation will be beautiful and bountiful, and the Lord will make certain that we have all of our needs satisfied.
 
Jeremiah 31:33 “But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”


Almighty God will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us. He will bind Satan in the bottomless pit and banish all evildoers to the unquenchable lake of fire. Nothing will ever harm or defile us ever again. He will change these mortal bodies into new, glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in good health and vitality. We will see our offspring for all generations to come, and dwell in peaceful habitations as brothers and sisters.
 
All men will be righteous and know the Lord intimately. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts for all eternity. He will be our God and we will be a people who are called by His holy name. We will give the Lord all the thanks, praise and honor that He deserves, and worship Him in Spirit and in truth as He desires. All flesh will go up to His holy mountain in the New Jerusalem, and celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness.
 
The Kingdom of God will have no end. It will literally be heaven on this earth and the dwelling place of Jesus Christ and His followers. We will have all of our needs met in abundance even before we ask. The Lord will make certain that we are healthy, happy and prosperous beyond our wildest imaginings. He will actually dwell with us and take an active interest in even the minute details of our lives. There will never be a separation between our God and mankind ever again.

 
The Lord Shows Us The Right Path

Psalm 119:32-35 “I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart. Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it [unto] the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with [my] whole heart. Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.”
 
The Lord is always communicating with His children. He desires intimate fellowship with us, that involves a two-way exchange of dialogue and feelings. We must purposely tune in and allow Him to enlarge our hearts, so that He can teach us His ways. Our God will open up the eyes of our understanding, so that we keep all of His commandments and prosper in everything we do.
 
Without His guidance and direction, we can easily lose ground in a world filled with sin, darkness and deception. It is relatively easy to slip from godly behavior into temptation. We must perceive the truth and hear what the Lord has to say to us, so that we stay on track. Much depends on our willingness and obedience, and we cannot afford to backslide if we will serve God.
 
Believers must be sanctified of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions, so that the Lord can demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and kindness through us to all of mankind. We should present our bodies as living sacrifices, consecrated and dedicated to His holy purpose. He will imbue us with all divine power and authority to serve as representatives for His everlasting Kingdom.

We will confront all world governments and abolish war, violence and conflict in all of our affairs. We will establish godly principles of fairness, equality and justice as the norm. Poverty and lack will be things of the past when we share all the vast resources of the universe with one another. There will finally be peace on the earth as we learn to live together as brothers and sisters.
 
Ephesians 2:4-10 “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

 
Almighty God wants us to rule and reign in this life and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity. He has chosen us from the very foundation of the world. We are His beloved sons and daughters and nothing good will ever be withheld from us. He has demonstrated His love in a multitude of ways and revealed all of His deep mysteries to us, so we can share them with others.
 
The truth is made readily available to each and every one of us if we seek the Lord will all of our heart, mind, soul and strength as we should. We now have light for our path, divine guidance and direction for all of our endeavors. We should strive to see clearly and hear accurately, so that we can function just like our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, did during His time here.
 
He overcame all evil with good and was eminently successful in all that He said and did. Christ shared the good news of the Kingdom of God with all of His followers and delivered everyone who was afflicted. He healed men of all their diseases and set captives free of demonic oppression. He even managed to raise the dead back to life through the Holy Spirit at work in Him.
 
Jesus took obedience to a brand new level. He actually became sin for us and then suffered its penalty of death in His own flesh. He bore all of our sins on the cross, so we could be made the righteousness of God. He was our role model and our teacher, so that we could imitate His laid down life. There is nothing that will be impossible to us if we follow in Christ’s footsteps.
 
Proverbs 4:23-27 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.”


We must guard our hearts, and sanctify ourselves of all carnality and selfishness of the soul. It is critical that we focus on spiritual matters and avoid being caught up in the ways of the world. The Lord wants us to be His goodwill ambassadors to all mankind and we must be godly role models. We should walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh, and choose our paths very carefully.
 
Nothing will be impossible to us as we take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. The Lord will teach us all that we need to know to serve Him and His people. He will imbue us with His divine power and authority to accomplish mighty feats in His name. We will preach the Gospel; heal the sick; cast out demons; and even raise the dead back to life as Jesus Christ did.
 
We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good. We will destroy Satanic strongholds that interfere with our work and advance the Kingdom of God on earth, just as it is in heaven. We will bring peace to all of our affairs even before Christ returns. There will be no more social injustice. Every man, woman and child will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
 
The sons and daughters of God will restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance. That will require us to be attentive to all that the Lord shows us. He will teach us how to command His express will to all of nature. Plants and animals will soon be in perfect harmony, and even the climate will be regulated. There will be no more natural disasters or pollution to threaten us.
 
Isaiah 30:20-21 “And [though] the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This [is] the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”


Although we may have many tests, trials and tribulation in this world, the Lord will watch over His people. If we should ever stray from the path of righteousness, He will gently guide us back on the right track. He will make certain that we are taught by His Holy Spirit and that we receive divine revelation, so we are not ever confused. He will preserve us blameless until the time of Christ’s coming and protect us from all evil. He has great things planned for us and it is vital that we see and hear truth.
 
Jesus was the firstborn of many sons and daughters of almighty God. All power in heaven and earth has been given to Him, and He is willing to share it with His followers who will resume His ministry where He left off. He is the Head and we are His Body on this earth. If we imitate His laid down life, we will be able to walk just as He once did. Christ will lead and guide us by the power of His Holy Spirit, and we will accomplish great feats in His name in the critical days to come on the earth.
 
We will embrace our divine destinies and overcome all evil with good. The fate of all of mankind will be impacted by our efforts. We will preach the Gospel with real power and conviction, and baptize countless numbers of souls to eternal life. Salvation will be made available to every man, woman and child in this world who is receptive. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil. We will even raise the dead back to life once again.
 
Believers will advance the Kingdom of God on the earth, as it is in heaven. We will establish godly principles of peace, order and stability in all our affairs. Everyone will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect. There will be no more oppression or exploitation. Poverty and lack will finally disappear. We will rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing, and destroy all demonic strongholds that interfere with our efforts. We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to greet Christ as their King.

 
 
Chapter 3 – Wisdom, Knowledge And Understanding

1Corinthians 3:18-20 “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.”
 
All of mankind lies in a web of sin, darkness and deception. Satan, the enemy of our souls, has blinded our eyes to the truth. We think we have all the answers to life’s problems, but we will only succeed in making things worse when we act in our own strength. We require godly insight and keen perception to set matters straight, and to establish peace, order and stability in all of our affairs.
 
Those who are wise in their own eyes will soon be rudely awakened. The Lord has no patience for men who think that they know more than He does. He humbles those who are overly confident in their own abilities, and uses the simple things in this world to confound the wise. Our heavenly Father reveals His eternal truths only to those who have contrite hearts and teachable spirits.
 
We cannot fool almighty God. He knows if we are proud and arrogant. He abhors those who are cunning and crafty, wicked and rebellious. We would do well to repent and seek His wisdom, so that He can bless all of our endeavors. He wants to see His people accomplish great things, but we must show Him proper deference and respect and rely on Him as our source for all knowledge.
 
There is no way for us to be saved to eternal life without humbling ourselves and surrendering our lives to Him. We must appropriate the righteousness of Jesus Christ Himself by faith and be changed in our spirit man. The Lord will then adopt us as His very own beloved sons and daughters. We will be entitled to receive all His promises to include wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
 
Proverbs 15:31-33 “The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise. He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding. The fear of the LORD [is] the instruction of wisdom; and before honour [is] humility.”

 
We should never despise the Lord’s instruction to us at any time. We must have a godly fear of Him and show deference and respect when He speaks to us. He always has our best interest at heart and He will never lead us astray. He has a good plan for our lives, and we must learn to cooperate with it. Almighty God knows the end from the beginning and He will lead and guide us.
 
The Lord is always speaking to His people and He is eager to reveal wisdom, knowledge and understanding to us. If we tune Him out, we are making a huge mistake that will eventually catch up with us. Without God’s guidance and direction we cannot prosper and succeed. We require His insight to solve all of our problems, and His heightened perception to meet all of our challenges.
 
We cannot pick and choose the information that we will receive from our Creator. He has pre-ordained that we should see and hear only the truth from Him. He gives us practical advice and shares even the deeper mysteries of our faith with us. He often exhorts and reproves, but He also inspires and encourages us. The Lord provides us with all that we need to know to prevail in this world.
 
His Holy Spirit will convict us of all sin and lead and guide us into all truth. He will enlighten us so that we walk in a straight path and do all that the Lord expects of us. He will help us discern good from evil and truth from falsehood. He will even give us a glimpse of things to come, so that nothing takes us by surprise. The Lord will always communicate with us, if we allow Him.
 
1Corinthians 1:19-21 “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where [is] the wise? where [is] the scribe? where [is] the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”  

 
Everything that we have ever believed to be true will be challenged in the days to come. The Lord will take the wisdom of the wise and destroy it right before our very eyes. Men’s knowledge will only fail us, but divine wisdom will emerge strong in every situation. The Lord will reveal truth to us as never before. He will unleash all the secrets of the universe to His people.
 
We must remain open to everything the Lord has to teach us. We cannot have haughty spirits or be overly wise in our own eyes. Almighty God picks the humble and simple things in this world to confound those who think they know it all. He wants His people to have contrite hearts and teachable spirits. He will download His revelation only to those who are receptive to it.
 
Believers have to be sensitive to all that the Lord wants to show and tell us. He is eager to lead and guide us into the truth and He will even show us things to come. We ought to pray for His insight and perception, so that we can embrace our divine destinies and serve Him in any capacity that He deems worthwhile. Our Creator has great things planned for us now and in the future.
 
The sons and daughters of God will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and conviction and see countless numbers of souls saved to eternal life. We will teach others how to live by godly principles and bring heaven itself to this earth realm.  The Kingdom of God will be a literal paradise for all those who dwell there. Man will never be separated from God ever again.
 
Proverbs 2:6-11 “For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: [he is] a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; [yea], every good path. When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:”  

 
Our God has given us divine wisdom, heightened knowledge and clear understanding, so that we can function optimally in this world and excel in all that we think, say and do. He always directs the path of the righteous and preserves us from all harm. He wants us to succeed in everything that we undertake. We are His holy saints, joint-heirs with Jesus to all of His promises.  
 
The Lord will be glorified in His sons and daughters, and He will demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and kindness to all of mankind in the days to come. We are privileged to know the truth and walk in the power of it. We have been given a divine anointing to bring heaven itself to this earth realm. Believers will usher in the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God for all eyes to see.
 
We will bring heaven’s way of doing things to this world in our lifetime. There will finally be peace, order and stability on this planet. Then the Lord, Jesus Christ, will return to commence His millennial rule and reign. He will judge all men and angels, to determine who will be blessed and who will be condemned. Jesus will reward the righteous and punish all of the wicked.
 
Christ will banish Satan to the bottomless pit and cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire. Nothing will remain that can defile either God or man ever again. The Kingdom of God will be a literal paradise for all those who are worthy to enter into it. The Lord will generously reward those who have been diligent to seek His ways and to faithfully serve His people.

 
Worldly Wisdom

Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee...”
 
The Lord created man in His very own image and likeness to dwell in paradise and to be blessed for all of eternity. Adam’s rebellion may have set us back to some degree, but the Lord has not totally abandoned us. He made provision for us to be restored to our original innocence. He sent His very own Son to this earth realm to teach us His ways and to be the sacrificial substitute for the sins of all of mankind.
 
Redemption through Jesus Christ is offered to every human being on the face of this planet. We have no excuse for ignorance and rebellion when the truth has been made so readily available to every man, woman and child. All we need do is repent of our sins and accept Christ as our personal Lord and Savior. We can appropriate His very own righteousness by faith, and all the promises of God become ours.
 
Salvation is an all or nothing proposition and we cannot take it lightly. If we reject the truth, the darkness will eventually overcome us. There is no way to the Father except through the cross of Christ. We cannot be reconciled with almighty God through any efforts of our own. We have to humble ourselves, believe in His Son and be baptized to eternal life. If we die in our sins, eternal condemnation is our fate.
 
We are without excuse for ignorance. Knowledge in the truth has been made readily available to every man, woman and child in this world. There is no way to appease almighty God for our sins, except by faith in all that His Son has accomplished for us. Jesus Christ suffered and died in our place, so that we could be restored to right standing with God and be exonerated of all our sin guilt once and for all time.
 
Isaiah 29:13-14 “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near [me] with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, [even] a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise [men] shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent [men] shall be hid.”

 
Salvation to eternal life is essential if we wish to succeed in this world and in the Kingdom to come. It may appear that we are doing well in our affairs, but without God in our lives we would surely perish. We need His insight and perception to solve all of our problems. We require His guidance and protection to deliver us from all evil, and to preserve us until the return of Jesus Christ.
 
God is not mocked. He sees into our minds and hearts and knows who is sincere. He can readily detect those who merely give lip service to their faith and He will expose their hypocrisy. The Lord is not ever obligated to provide anything to the wicked and rebellious. He will strip them of all their rights and privileges until they repent and turn back towards Him once again.
 
No one who is proud and arrogant will ever enter into the Kingdom of God. The Lord will only bless and reward those who are called by His holy name and humbled before Him. He will reveal wisdom and knowledge to His sons and daughters, but confute those who are wise in their own eyes. Worldly wisdom will not benefit us if we are disobedient or disrespectful to our God.
 
1Samuel 2:3 “Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let [not] arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD [is] a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.”


If we are humble and sincere, the Lord will exalt us in due season. He will raise us up as kings and priests to serve as His ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. We will operate in divine power and authority and perform miracles, signs and wonders. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and baptize many souls to eternal life. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead.
 
The very words that we speak that line up with those of almighty God will destroy strongholds of all types. We will bind Satanic operations and loose blessings for all of mankind. We will decree and declare what God wants to happen on this earth and see it manifest right before our very eyes. We will advance the Kingdom of God everywhere that we go and in all that we do on His behalf.
 
All world governments will be confronted with the truth. We will establish peace, order and stability everywhere. There will be no more war, violence and conflict. Poverty and lack will be abolished; social injustice will be a thing of the past. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of one human being over another. All men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
 
We will speak God’s words and restore all creation to its original beauty and balance. We will command perfect harmony between the plants and animals and make certain that they are subject to man. The climate will be regulated so it is always temperate and predictable. There will be no more environmental pollution, no more natural disasters that ever cause death and destruction in their wake.
 
Isaiah 5:20-21 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto [them that are] wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”

 
We have a choice; free will is guaranteed to us at all times. We can remain ignorant of the truth and fail, or appropriate the wisdom of almighty God and walk in total victory. We cannot be wise in our own eyes and set ourselves up as God. We do not ever have the right and privilege of determining what is good and evil. The Lord has established absolute moral standards and His truth is inviolable.
 
We must repent of all our sins; sanctify ourselves of all carnality and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We should also be baptized with His Holy Spirit, so that we are able to hear from Him regularly.
If we do, our lives will change as never before. We will be restored to right standing with God and He will reveal all His truths to us, so that we are never without His lead and guidance.
 
We will soon learn that we have divine destinies as His sons and daughters. We will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God and prepare the hearts of mankind to receive Christ as their King. We will establish godly principles for all of our affairs and finally bring peace, order and stability to all of our lives. Divine wisdom will help us to overcome all evil with good in the days to come.


Fear Of The Lord Leads To Wisdom

Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.”  
 
Almighty God has made divine wisdom and revelation readily available to every human being on this planet. We were created in His very image and likeness, and the Lord wants us to be in dominion over all of creation. That requires us to know what He knows and act on it. If we have reverence for almighty God, and value what He has to share with us, we will rule and reign in this life.
 
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but some men think that they know more than God does. They are proud and arrogant and walk in limited understanding until they encounter something that they simply cannot overcome in their own strength. The Lord will do all that He can to abase those who are haughty and wise in their own eyes, so that they will turn back to Him.
 
Ours is a jealous God, and He does not want anything to take preeminence over Him in our lives. He wants to spare us the aggravation of defeat that comes from doing our own thing. All the knowledge in this world is no substitute for the divine wisdom that comes from intimate fellowship with our Creator. The Lord will share His insight and perception only with those who appreciate His input.
 
If we lack wisdom in any given situation, the Lord will freely share all relevant truth with us. However, He insists that we acknowledge Him as our source. We must rely on Him to grant us the understanding that we need to apply what we have learned to our lives.  We would do well to show the Lord all of the deference and respect that He deserves, so that He continues to communicate with us.
 
Proverbs 9:9-11 “Give [instruction] to a wise [man], and he will be yet wiser: teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning. The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy [is] understanding. For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.”

 
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom and knowledge. A prudent, just person will be open to the things that God reveals to him, so that he can prosper in all of his ways. His eyes will see and his ears will hear everything that the Lord speaks and shows him. He will have reverence and respect for almighty God, and he will be exalted because of his humble and sincere heart.
 
The Lord will pour out His many blessings on all those who value His insight and instruction. They will excel in a world that is teeming with sin and darkness, riddled with lies and deception. The wise will shine with God’s awesome light and be righteous role models for all men to follow. They will succeed when others fail, and overcome all forms of wickedness and evil with good.
 
Divine revelation will cause even the simple to be wise and prevail in whatever they do. The Lord will equip believers with power and authority to serve Him and His people in the critical days to come. He will lead and guide us every step of the way, as we take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. We will rise up in our kingly and priestly offices and glorify God in all we do.
 
Job 28:28 “And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that [is] wisdom; and to depart from evil [is] understanding.”

 
A reverent fear of the Lord will serve us well in all our situations and circumstances. We must remain truly humble and in awe of our God at all times. He is omniscient and we require His wisdom and revelation to solve all of our problems, no matter how insignificant they may seem. The Lord expects deference and respect and requires obedience from His people. In return, He will bless us abundantly in whatever we do.
 
Nothing will be impossible to those who seek wisdom and understanding. The Lord will empower us in ways that we have only dreamed were possible. We will be His ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. We will share our faith and set men free in the truth. We will baptize every man, woman and child who is receptive. We will heal the sick, cast out demons, and even raise the dead by the power of His Holy Spirit.
 
We will confront all world governments and challenge them to embrace godly principles of fairness, justice and equality in their dealings with one another. There will be no more no social injustice, no oppression or exploitation, no wars, violence and conflict anywhere. All men will be treated with dignity and respect. We will bring peace, order and stability to all of our affairs and learn to live together as brothers and sisters.
 
Our God will teach us how to subdue all of creation as His sons and daughters. We will be able to exercise His divine power and authority. We will command perfect harmony in the plant and animal kingdoms. There will be no more predatory spirit, no natural disasters nor environmental pollution. The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable. There will be beauty and balance established in all of nature.
 
Psalm 111:7-10 “The works of his hands [are] verity and judgment; all his commandments [are] sure. They stand fast for ever and ever, [and are] done in truth and uprightness. He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend [is] his name. The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do [his commandments]: his praise endureth for ever.”

 
The Lord is a covenant keeping God for all generations. He wants to make all the resources of the universe available to His people, so that we can be successful in all of our affairs. He has already provided us with redemption to eternal life, and He makes wisdom and knowledge accessible to each and every one of us. If we wish to know anything, we need only seek the Lord and He will reveal truth to us.
 
If we keep all of the commandments and show proper reverence to the Lord, as we should, He will withhold no good thing – spiritual or temporal – from us. He will give us advice in practical matters and unveil His deep, hidden secrets to us, as well. Almighty God takes delight in the prosperity of His people, and He will do all that He can to enlighten and encourage us in everything that we do.
 
The people of God will shine with His glorious light in the critical days to come before Christ returns to us. He will imbue us with a divine anointing to act as His goodwill ambassadors on this earth. We will be wise beyond our years, and serve as godly role models to others who are still lost in darkness and deception. We will speak only what God speaks, and demonstrate His very own power and authority.


The Wisdom And Knowledge Of God

Proverbs 1:2-5 “To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:”
 
It is possible for us to learn to think like God thinks and judge everything according to His perfect, impeccable standards. We are created in His very image and likeness and He wants us walking in dominion over all matters on this earth. In order to be successful at that, we have to tap into His infinite wisdom and obtain knowledge that will help us to prevail.
 
If we surrender our minds and wills to Christ, we will be able to resume His ministry where He left off. Jesus promised that we will be able to do everything that He did, and even greater works, since He has gone to the Father. Through the power of His Holy Spirit, we will learn to discern what is good and what is bad. The Holy Spirit of God leads and guides us to truth.
 
We will one day judge both men and angels and we need to sharpen our skills, so that we can perceive men’s minds and hearts just as Jesus once did. We have to be more aware of what motivates them and influences their actions. That will require us to see more clearly and listen more closely. We will soon learn to supernaturally distinguish righteousness from evil.     
 
Ecclesiastes 2:26 “For [God] giveth to a man that [is] good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to [him that is] good before God. This also [is] vanity and vexation of spirit.”

Right behavior follows right thinking. The Lord grants wisdom and knowledge to those who do good in His eyes and they succeed in all of their affairs. However, the sinner is often so confused and deceived, that everything he does is difficult for him. No matter how hard he tries, he can never seem to get ahead. He lacks godly wisdom and understanding. That is his downfall.
 
The steps of a righteous man never fail, because the Lord makes certain that He leads and guides those who are faithful and devoted to Him. He provides light to our path and He always delights in our prosperity. Almighty God wants only what is best for His people, and He will give us extraordinary insight and keen perception that will enable us to prevail in everything that we do.
 
Men perish for lack of knowledge and the Lord is grieved by that. He gives wisdom to those who repent of their sins and seek His face. If we accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, our lives will change. His Holy Spirit will come to indwell us and teach us everything we need to know to overcome all of our difficulties. We are more than conquerors if we have the mind of Christ in us.
 
The Lord will make us the head and not the tail. His Word says that the wealth and riches of the sinner are stored up for the righteous. We will be given every spiritual and temporal advantage, so that we can always succeed in everything that we do. Divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding will help believers to rule and reign in this life and in the Kingdom to come for all of eternity.
 
Proverbs 22:17 “Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.”

 
To those whom much is given, much is expected. The Lord wants us to present our bodies as living sacrifices to Him, so that we can serve others in the days ahead. He is recruiting ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. We will co-labor with Him to rescue all of mankind from darkness and deception. That will only happen when we voluntarily surrender ourselves to Him.
 
Believers will take back the entire earth from Satan, the enemy of our souls. We will overcome all evil with good and destroy demonic strongholds that interfere with our progress. We will share our faith with power and conviction and baptize countless souls to eternal life. We will heal the sick, cast out devils and even raise the dead back to life once again, just as Jesus Christ did.
 
The Kingdom of God will be advanced everywhere we go, because we have received godly wisdom to conduct all of our personal affairs. We will confront all world governments and persuade them to adopt principles of fairness and justice in their dealings with one another. We will abolish all wars, violence and conflict, and eradicate poverty and lack off of the face of this earth.
 
Romans 11:33-36 “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable [are] his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, [are] all things: to whom [be] glory for ever. Amen.”

 
Our God has everything under control despite how things might appear to the contrary in the world around us. He is wise above all of our standards and has a genius mind that exceeds anything that we could ever imagine. Of Him, through Him and to Him are all things connected. He sustains all life forms and He will continue to provide for all our needs and protect us from all harm if we put all of our trust in Him.
 
The Lord has a marvelous plan for the redemption of His people. However, it involves our active participation. We will partner with almighty God in impacting the fate of the entire human race. We will demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and compassion by making eternal life available to everyone that we meet. We will bring heaven’s way of doing things to this world, even before Christ returns to us.
 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will shine with His glorious light in the days to come. We will receive a full anointing of His power and authority. We will bring peace, order and stability to the earth and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Jesus Christ as their King. Men will learn to dwell together in love and unity as brothers and sisters or be banished from the Kingdom of God for all of eternity.
 
There will be no more social injustice, no artificial barriers that separate us from one another any longer. Everyone will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect. We will eliminate poverty and lack, and share all of the valuable resources of the universe. The Kingdom of God will literally be heaven on this earth, and the Lord’s principles of righteousness and equality will be the norm established in all our affairs.


Divine Instruction

James 1:5-8 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man [is] unstable in all his ways.”
 
The Lord does not withhold any good thing from His children. He formed us in His very image and likeness, and He wants us to take dominion over all of creation as we were destined to do. We cannot do that without godly wisdom and knowledge. He will instruct us in everything that we need to know. We must only ask Him, and then believe that we will indeed hear from Him.
 
A double minded man can never please God. Our Creator insists that we believe that we have whatever we ask of Him in Jesus’ name. He will always answer our prayers and attend to all of our needs, regardless of whether they are temporal or spiritual. If we ever lack wisdom, we can always approach Him without fear, shame or condemnation. He will grant us His own supernatural insight.
 
Our faith will serve us well as we embrace our eternal callings as the sons and daughters of almighty God. We can rely on Him to download revelation to us on a regular basis, so that we prevail in everything that we set out to do. He speaks to us through His written Word and directly to our spirits. If we communicate via our supernatural prayer language that will even expedite the process.
 
When we pray in tongues, we go immediately to the throne room of God. If we take the time to listen and hear with our hearts, we will receive knowledge and understanding direct from Him. He will lead and guide us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we have godly counsel available to us at all times. The Lord will never leave or forsake us; He is always speaking to His people.
 
Isaiah 45:18 -19 “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I [am] the LORD; and [there is] none else. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.”

 
Almighty God is not withholding any of His secrets from us. He makes the truth readily available to any of us who call on His name. He wants us enlightened so that we can not only fellowship with Him, but also take dominion over all of creation as He created us to do. His Holy Spirit leads and guides us into all truth. If any of us lack wisdom, all that we need to do is ask the Lord for it.
 
The Lord reveals Himself through His Word and through the inner witness that we experience when we go deeper in our relationship with Him. He speaks plainly and tells us what we must do to be successful in our walk with Him. His commandments light our path and keep us on track. His judgments are all sound and form the basis for what we think, say and do as His sons and daughters.
 
All the mysteries of the universe are waiting to be discovered. If we pray and meditate on what God reveals to us, we will be amazed at how much wisdom and understanding we can acquire by spending time in His holy presence. The Lord wants us to be fully mature, so that we are prepared to learn everything that He has to share. There is no good thing He will ever withhold from us.
 
Psalm 94:9-12 “He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see? He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, [shall not he know]? The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they [are] vanity. Blessed [is] the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;”

 
Our Creator is infinitely patient with mankind. He understands all our frailties and vulnerabilities. He is merciful and compassionate, even when we are proud and arrogant. He wants to reveal all that we need to know to prevail in this life and in the Kingdom to come.  But many of us are not ready for that. We have to sit under His teaching and absorb information in small increments before He can share more with us.
 
If we are humble and sincere and show the Lord all the deference and respect that He deserves, He will be inclined to reveal great truths to us. He blesses those who have contrite hearts and teachable spirits. The meek will inherit the earth, not the haughty and arrogant. Those who are wise in their own eyes will always be confuted, but those who are faithful, obedient servants of the Lord will ultimately be blessed.
 
The Lord chastises those whom He holds most dear. He cannot permit us to become lax in our thinking or careless in our behavior. He wants us to persist in well-doing until Christ returns, so we can be godly role models to others. We are required to walk in love and keep all of His commandments. These are basic prerequisites for entering into His everlasting Kingdom, and He cannot and will not ever waive them.
 
If we are faithful and obedient, we will have generous rewards. The Lord will shower us with all spiritual and temporal blessings and make our paths straight and successful. He will lead and guide us in all that we think, say and do, so that we can glorify Him. Our God will boast of us to all of creation, and appoint us to be kings and priests to His people. We will rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.


Understanding What We Hear

Job 12:11-13 “Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat? With the ancient [is] wisdom; and in length of days understanding. With him [is] wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.”
 
Some of what the Lord tells us may seem odd at first.  Our human comprehension is sometimes slow. It often takes us awhile to learn to think like God thinks, so that we can see the truth and accurately process what He speaks to us. However, if we persist, we can eventually overcome our ignorance and receive understanding of what the Lord is trying to reveal.
 
Our God never tries to confuse or mislead His people in any way. He wants us to know the whole truth in every instance. He delights in our prosperity and He knows that godly wisdom and understanding will help us attain success in every area of our lives. He is always ready to speak to us, and quick to lead and guide us, when we ask for His input to solve any problem.
 
The Holy Scriptures, as the written Word of God, confirm themselves. What we read one place in the Bible is frequently repeated elsewhere. The anointed, spoken Word should also line up with the written one. Whatever we read and hear should always be reinforced by what God Himself says. We must never forget that He has the final authority in all matters.
 
Exodus 35:31 “And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;”

 
The more time we spend with our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, the more we begin to think like God thinks and say what He says. When we decree and declare His words, we make them our very own. The Word of God never returns void, and when we speak it aloud that releases tremendous power for it to manifest in the world around us. We should only speak what God would say in every situation.
 
If we are diligent students of the Word and we actively pursue a deeper relationship with our God, we will never be disappointed. He will communicate with us intimately, and grant us wisdom and understanding that help us achieve great things. We will excel in every endeavor, if we seek the Lord’s input and value what He shares with us. Godly insight will make the difference between mediocrity and excellence.
 
The Lord gives us the ability to prosper and get wealth. He wants His people to shine with His glorious light, so that His name is exalted. If we ask Him for His advice in everything that we undertake – both spiritual and temporal – He will never forsake us. He will provide us with supernatural abilities that will help us solve to all of our problems and reduce all complexities to their lowest common denominator.
 
Some of us will be scientific innovators who find miraculous cures for terminal diseases of epidemic proportion. Others will be political activists who finally bring peace and stability to this earth. Still others will be environmental experts that eliminate all of the pollution that has plagued our planet for so many years. All of us will be spiritual advisors who lead countless numbers to salvation through Jesus Christ.
 
Deuteronomy 4:5-6 “Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do [them]; for this [is] your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation [is] a wise and understanding people.”

 
Believers will accomplish great feats in the critical days to come before Christ returns. While the world around us will be cloaked in sin and darkness, teeming with lies and deception, we will emerge wise and strong. We will be given revelation and understanding, power and authority that permit us to overcome all evil with good. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and set many free in the truth.
 
We will confront all wickedness that we see and enlighten others in God’s righteous principles. We will persuade them to abolish social injustice and treat one another with fairness, dignity and respect. We will establish peace, order and stability in all of our affairs. We will destroy all poverty and lack and make certain that all of our needs are met from the vast resources that this universe has to offer.
 
The Kingdom of God will be advanced on earth, just as it is in heaven. The Lord will be exalted in a people who are called by His name and walk in His ways. We will be the envy of all those around us and godly role models for all of mankind. We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders everywhere we go. We will heal the sick and cast out demons. Even the dead will be raised back to life once again.
 
Colossians 1:9-10 “For this cause we also, since the day we heard [it], do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;”

 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will be wise and prudent in all our affairs. Kings and presidents will come to us for godly advice, and we will confront all world governments to make certain that they treat their people with fairness and justice. Wars, violence and conflict will all disappear through our efforts. There will be peace, order and stability established everywhere that we go.
 
Believers will be creators of witty inventions and leaders in every area of expertise. Even small children who walk in the wisdom and understanding of God will excel in every endeavor. God’s people will be a blessing to all the nations of the world, as we establish His principles as the norm. We will teach all of mankind to dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters.
 
Poverty and lack will be abolished as we learn to share all the vast resources of the universe with those who are in need. Social injustice will not even be named among us.  There will be no more artificial, societal class barriers that separate one man from another. Oppression and exploitation will finally cease. Power and greed will no longer cause men to hurt those who are weak and innocent.
 
We will take dominion over all of creation as we are destined to do. There will be no more pollution that defiles the earth, no natural disasters that cause death and destruction in their wake. Plants and animals will be in perfect harmony with one another and subject to man once again. Even the climate will be regulated, so it is always temperate and predictable like it was in the Garden of Eden.


The Fruits Of Godly Wisdom

James 3:13-17 “Who [is] a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but [is] earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife [is], there [is] confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, [and] easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.”
 
Worldly wisdom is full of envy and strife and leads to all sort of evil works. It causes men to be proud and arrogant, to compete with one another and to defy almighty God. It cannot permanently benefit any of us. We require divine wisdom to truly change our lives, to provide us with the valuable insight and perception that we need to prevail in all of our situations and circumstances.
 
God’s wisdom is good and peaceable, and always leads to right thinking and right behavior. It is free of strife and division and full of mercy and compassion. Those who are truly wise are also understanding. They live in unity with others and attract men by their quiet, gentle spirits. The wise man honors God with all of the knowledge that has been given to him by serving others.
 
He embraces his divine destiny and imitates the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself. He is loving, and obedient to do all that the Lord asks of him. He shares his faith with power and conviction and wins many souls to eternal life. He walks in genuine power and authority and represents the Kingdom of God on this earth, as he has been called to do from the foundation of the world.
 
The wise man remembers who he is and whom he serves at all times. He is always ready and willing to minister to those in need. He hears direct from God and can be trusted to implement His will on the earth, just as it is in heaven. He is always willing and obedient to do anything and everything that the Lord requires of him, and is able to accomplish great things for our God.

Jeremiah 9:23-24 “Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise [man] glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty [man] glory in his might, let not the rich [man] glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I [am] the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these [things] I delight, saith the LORD.”
 
We cannot glory in our own wisdom and limited understanding, nor can we ever be righteous through our own efforts. That is always a serious mistake. We become overly confident and fail to rely on almighty God as our source. We struggle to make our way in this world when we depend on our own strength and capabilities. We desperately need the Lord to speak His truth to us.
 
The wise man is humble and sincere. He puts God first in his life, and shows Him all the deference and respect that He deserves. He never forgets that the Lord is all powerful and all wise. He maintains a healthy, balanced perspective in his relationship with God, and the Lord exalts him time and time again. He is continually blessed so that he can, in turn, be a blessing to others.
 
Because pride and arrogance are not an issue in his life, the Lord is able to work through His servant to demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and compassion for all of mankind. The wise man is sensitive and kind, good and gentle, knowledgeable and understanding. He is a godly role model and an unselfish minister. He is a vessel of honor always suitable for the Master’s use.
 
The Lord can use those of us who have godly wisdom to accomplish great feats in His mighty name. He knows that He can depend on men and women of understanding to always obey His commandments and walk in love. He can count on us to co-labor with Him in ushering in the Kingdom of God to this earth. We will be able to rescue all of mankind from sin, darkness and deception.
 
1Corinthians 1:27-31“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”  

 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will shine with His glorious light in the critical days to come. They will walk in miracles, signs and wonders, and prepare the hearts of all mankind to greet Christ as their King. They will destroy demonic strongholds that impede their progress and bring heaven itself to this earth. Soon every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord over all creation.”
 
We are the Body of Christ Himself and nothing will be able to stop us from ushering in the Kingdom of God. We will have all the unfathomable wisdom of the universe given to us, so that we can accomplish the impossible. The Holy Spirit of God will lead and guide us into total victory in Jesus’ mighty name. We will preach the Gospel and see countless numbers of souls saved to eternal life with all its many benefits.
 
The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk through our efforts on their behalf. We will lay hands on all those who are sick and afflicted in any way, and they will be healed. We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil, and even raise the dead back to life once again. Nothing will be impossible to us, as heaven itself is ushered in to the earth in preparation for the return of Christ.
 
The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all of our prayers and the solution to all of our problems. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore everything that was taken from us. He will change these mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that never get sick and die. He will judge all men and even angels; banish the wicked from our presence; and reward us for our faithful service to Him.
 
Isaiah 11:1-4 “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.”

 
Jesus Christ is the sum total of God’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding in human form. He not only served as our Teacher and our Redeemer, but He will be our Judge, as well. He does not judge by the sight of His eyes, but with the perfect insight and perception of almighty God Himself. Only Christ is capable of evaluating both men and angels to decide who will be rewarded and who will be punished.
 
He will wreak vengeance on all of His enemies and destroy all evil off the face of the earth. Jesus will banish Satan and all of his minions to the bottomless pit, and cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire for all of eternity. He will permit nothing to defile either God or man ever again. There will be only peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom in His everlasting Kingdom.
 
Jesus Christ is almighty God Himself, our righteous, benevolent King. He will meet all of our needs and protect us from all harm. He will rule and reign forever in the Kingdom of God on this earth, and share all of His honor and glory with those who have faithfully served Him. Our Lord and Savior will appoint us to be kings and priests of God, so that we can minister to the needs of His people for all time.
 
All wisdom and understanding will be granted to us, as we rule and reign with Christ over all of the nations of the world. We will have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth. We will teach all men how to dwell together as brothers and sisters in love, peace and unity. We will enforce the Kingdom principles of fairness, equality and justice in the government of God on this earth.

 
 
Chapter 4 – Revelation Through Jesus Christ

Matthew 11:25-27 “At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him].”
 
Almighty God does not fellowship intimately with those who blatantly defy and reject Him. He will purposely blind men’s eyes to the truth if they are wise in their own eyes, stubborn and rebellious. Yet He makes His mysteries known to innocent babes and the simple-minded in this world. He always abases the proud and arrogant, but exalts the humble and sincere who have contrite hearts and teachable spirits.
 
The Lord manifests Himself through the Gospel of Jesus Christ better than any other way. We can come to know our heavenly Father through the personality and attributes of His beloved Son. Jesus was the full embodiment of God’s infinite love, mercy and compassion for the entire human race. Although He was divine, He was born of a woman and became one of us, so He could serve as our sacrificial substitute.
 
Christ did not come to condemn the world, but to redeem all of mankind from its sin, transgression and iniquity, so that we could be restored to right standing with almighty God. He suffered, died and was buried, so that we could receive the gift of eternal life with all its many benefits. He rose again from the dead as the firstborn of many sons and daughters of God who rule and reign with Him over all creation.
 
When we see Jesus, we see our Creator God in all of His power and glory. Christ is the express image of the Father and He delights in revealing Himself to us. All we need do is believe in Him and accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior. When we do, our lives change for the better and we become righteous through our faith. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the very right hand of God Himself.
 
2Corinthians 4:3-6 “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

 
The truth is not deliberately hidden, yet many are still confused. They have blind eyes and deaf ears. They cannot discern spiritual matters because they are lost in their sin. They are focused on mundane issues and they seldom, if ever, hear from God. Although salvation has been provided to all of mankind, some will still choose to be rebellious, and suffer in their ignorance for all of eternity.
 
There is no excuse for anyone to ever be overcome by darkness, deceived by Satan, the god of this world. The Gospel is made readily available to every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation. If we are purposely stubborn and refuse to believe the truth, we will ultimately perish. Salvation to eternal life is granted only to those who repent of their sins and believe in Jesus Christ.
 
He was God in all respects, yet He humbled Himself, laid down His deity and took on human form, so that He could become one of us. He, who knew no sin, actually became sin for us and then paid its penalty of death with His very own flesh. Christ served as our sacrificial substitute, so that the human race would not be condemned to eternal punishment and be separated from God any longer.
 
Jesus suffered, died and was buried, so that we would not have to endure the same fate. He became poor and disenfranchised so that we could be made rich. The chastisement of our peace was upon Him. He bore our infirmities and carried our diseases, so that we could be healthy and whole. Christ took on all of our sins, so that we could be made joint-heirs with Him to all of the promises of God.
 
1Corinthians 2:14-16 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

 
The natural man doesn’t know what he is missing. His eyes are dimmed and his hearing impaired when it comes to spiritual matters. He is oblivious to the truth and without hope and confidence for his future. He thinks that the things of God are foolishness and he closes his mind to them. Although the Lord is yearning for men to repent and seek truth, He will never force Himself on us as that would violate our free will.
 
Believers are highly favored of God. We can comprehend all the deep mysteries of our faith and hear from the Lord on a regular basis. He leads and guides us in everything that we think, say and do. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. He answers every prayer and supplies all that we need to be healthy, happy and prosperous. He reveals our divine destinies to us, and then equips us to fulfill them.
 
We have received all power and authority and we will advance the Kingdom of God on this earth, just as it is in heaven. We will rule and reign over all of our situations and circumstances. No man is able to judge us; that is reserved for our Lord and Savior alone.  We have the mind of Christ, so that we can judge all things to see whether they be of God. We can discern right from wrong and overcome all evil with good.
 
Because of our faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God who redeemed us from all our sins, we become the actual sons and daughters of God Himself. We are now seated with Him in heavenly places, and we have all the resources of this universe available to us. The Lord wants us to know what our rights and privileges are, so we can enjoy our lives in abundance and take dominion over all of creation as we are called to do.


The Gospel Changes Everything

Hebrews 2:9-13 “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom [are] all things, and by whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified [are] all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. ”

The sin of Adam in the Garden of Eden sealed the fate of all mankind, and doomed us to never ending punishment for our sins. The Lord’s plans for us were ruined, and He had to develop a solution to restore us to our right standing with Him. No sin can abide in His holy presence, yet He still yearned for our fellowship. It was necessary for Him to visit the earth and redeem us of all our generational iniquity.
 
Jesus was God incarnated as a human being. He came to this world to deliver all of mankind from the penalty of death and to provide us with life in abundance. He took on all of our sin, as if it were His very own, and then paid for it at the cross. Jesus suffered, died and was buried, so that we would not have to endure the same fate. He also rose again from the dead as the firstborn of many brothers and sisters.
 
He, who knew no sin, became sin for us, so that we could be made the righteousness of God and be fully restored to right standing with our heavenly Father. Christ was our sacrificial substitute, the perfect Lamb of God that was required to atone for the transgressions of the entire human race for all time. He defeated all principalities and powers, and restored dominion over the entire earth back to man where it belongs.
 
We have the Gospel, the Word of almighty God Himself, which reveals the character of Jesus Christ to us in a real and personal way. The Gospel chronicles Christ’s sacrifice for man and teaches us God’s way of doing things, so we can imitate His laid down life. It challenges us to become godly ourselves, so that we can embrace our divine destinies. The Lord has awesome plans for us but we must cooperate with Him.
 
Romans 10:8-11 “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. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”

 
All that we must do to be delivered from the power of sin and darkness is to repent, believe the truth, and confess it with our mouths. If we accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God, who came to this earth to save us from our sins, we must acknowledge Him as our personal Lord and Savior and be baptized in His name. If we do, everything becomes new for us; we are no longer condemned to punishment.
 
The Lord looks at us through the Blood of Jesus that continually washes us of our sins, and He sees us as being righteous once again. We are no longer estranged from God. We have become His very own sons and daughters by faith, and no good thing will ever be withheld from us. We are actually seated with Jesus Christ in heavenly places, and we have access to all spiritual and temporal blessings.
 
Our minds will be renewed in the truth and our behavior will be transformed until it becomes godly. If we sanctify ourselves and forego all of our carnal lusts and selfish soul ambitions, we will be able to imitate the laid down life of Jesus and walk in all of His power and authority. We will resume His ministry where He left off, and prepare the hearts of mankind to receive Him as their glorious King.
 
We will share our faith with real power and conviction and persuade men to examine their consciences and repent of their sins. We will make salvation through Jesus Christ available to every living creature, so that they can be made the righteousness of God and inherit the gift of eternal life just as we have. They will no longer be lost in darkness and deception; the truth will set them free as never before.
 
2Corinthians 5:20-21 “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”


There is no longer a separation between God and man. Jesus stood in the gap for us, and we have received forgiveness for all our sins, plus the gift of eternal life. He reconciled us back to our heavenly Father and we are now accepted in the beloved. Very soon now, the Lord will gather us into His everlasting Kingdom on this earth, and we will dwell in His holy presence for all time.
 
But first, we have a work to do that will impact the fate of the entire human race. The Lord wants us to rescue those who are still perishing in this world, and save them from never ending condemnation. We must share our faith with power and conviction and set men free in the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will make salvation available to every man, woman and child.
 
We are Christ’s ambassadors for the Kingdom of God, righteous role models and guides for all those who still suffer from bondage to sin and darkness. We will cast out demons that oppress men and destroy all strongholds that interfere with our work. We will overcome all evil with good, and enforce only godly principles of fairness, justice and equality in all our personal affairs.
 
No devil in hell will be able to stop us. We will have access to the very same anointing that Jesus walked in. We will do the works that He did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with His Father. We will perform healing miracles. The blind will see; the deaf will hear and the lame will walk. We will even raise the dead back to life through the power of His Holy Spirit.
 
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.”

 
No righteous person will ever be denied entry into the Kingdom of almighty God. The Lord will protect us from evil and preserve us blameless before Him, while those who are wicked and rebellious will all be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and He will see that nothing harms or defiles us ever again.
 
He will cast Satan into the bottomless pit and restore everything that was stolen from us. We will dwell in peaceful habitations as brothers and sisters and all men will know the Lord. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will worship our God in Spirit and in truth, and celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with gladness in our hearts.
 
The Lord will change these mortal bodies that are susceptible to disease and death into new, glorious, resurrection forms that never get sick and die. We will see our offspring for all generations to come, and enjoy our lives as never before. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His holy presence.
 
Christ will share His very own honor and glory with those who have faithfully served Him. He will not forget our sacrifice on His behalf. We will assist Him in judging both men and angels. He will appoint us to be kings and priests of God. We will rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world, so that we can enforce principles of fairness and justice.


New Creatures In Christ

2Corinthians 5:17-19 “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; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”
 
Jesus Christ was the firstborn of many sons and daughters of almighty God. He is the first human being to be born again in His spirit man. He died and was raised from the dead, so that we could partake of His resurrection power ourselves. If we sincerely believe that He was the Son of God sent to redeem us of all iniquity and confess Him as our Lord and Savior, all things become new for us.
 
Believers are no longer condemned to death as a penalty for our sins. Jesus was the perfect Lamb of God that was required to serve as our sacrificial substitute. He took on the curse of the law, so that we could be blessed in abundance. Because of His perfect obedience, we are made the righteousness of God. The Lord loves us as His own children, and we will live forever in the Kingdom of God.
 
We are new creatures in Christ; all things are as they were intended to be from the beginning of the world. Our sins are no longer imputed to us, nor are we estranged from our Creator. We are reconciled with God and accepted in the beloved. We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises for righteousness. There is no good thing – spiritual or temporal – that the Lord will ever withhold from us.
 
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.”

 
Jesus Christ was the total atonement that was required to remit the sins, transgressions and iniquity of all mankind – past, present and future. His Blood keeps on cleansing us, and we are righteous only because of our faith in Him. There is nothing additional that we have to do to win favor or gain grace with almighty God. It was all accomplished on the cross for us thousands of years ago.
 
Once we are born again, Christ actually comes to dwell in us, and we become a part of Him. He sends us His very own Holy Spirit to lead and guide us into all truth. The Spirit of almighty God strengthens us and fills our spirit man, so that we begin to think, act and talk like God Himself. We are empowered from on high to walk in our divine destinies, and nothing will be impossible to us.
 
The fruit of the Holy Spirit begin to manifest in our lives and we become good, gentle, patient, meek, temperate and longsuffering. Our faith is increased, and we have peace and joy as never before. If we walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh, we will be able to accomplish mighty feats. We will be godly role models who share our faith with all those with whom we come in contact.
 
Believers are the sons and daughters of almighty God, who will change the fate of the entire human race in the critical days to come. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world, so that countless numbers of souls can be saved to eternal life. 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.
 
1Peter 1:13-16 “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”

 
We will be willing and obedient to do all that the Lord asks of us. We will sanctify ourselves of all carnality and actually become holy, so that the Lord can imbue us with power and authority to act on His behalf. He will be able to accomplish mighty feats through us. We will demonstrate His great love, mercy and compassion for all of mankind, and rescue many souls from sin and darkness, death and destruction.
 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will take back the entire planet for the Kingdom of God and establish His way of doing things on earth as it is in heaven. We will challenge all world leaders to adopt righteous principles in their dealings with one another. We will abolish wars, violence and conflict and eradicate poverty and lack. We will make certain that all men are finally treated with dignity and respect.
 
There will be peace, order and stability established everywhere, even before Christ returns to set up His millennial rule and reign. Soon He will return to judge all of mankind, and even angels, and we will assist Him. There will be no more wickedness and evil anywhere on the face of this earth. Christ will banish Satan and all his minions to the abyss and cast all evildoers into the unquenchable lake of fire for all time.
 
John 9:39 “And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.”

 
Many who are first now will be last in the Kingdom of God, because they failed to choose good versus evil, and accept Jesus Christ’s offer of reconciliation. Others, who were once blind and deaf to the truth, will be awakened and enlightened to its power. The Lord will make redemption to eternal life available to all those who seek Him and repent of their sins, without prejudice or exception.
 
Jesus was the perfect Lamb of God, the total atonement needed to satisfy the terms of the Old Testament Law regarding sin. He is our Lord and Savior and our glorious King. He will soon return to this earth to judge all men and even angels to determine who has been faithful and who has been disobedient. The Lord will be fair and just, but His decisions will also be final and permanent.
 
He will not judge by the sight of His eyes, but with fairness, equality and justice unmatched in all of creation. Jesus Christ will make certain that all of the righteous are blessed and gathered to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God. He will banish Satan and all of his minions to the bottomless pit, while all the wicked will be cast into the unquenchable lake of fire forever more.
 
The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and defend us from all harm. He will fully restore everything that was taken from us and make certain that we have all our needs met in abundance. He will vindicate us before both men and angels and exalt those who humble themselves before Him. Only those who are meek and contrite of spirit will spend all eternity in His presence.

 
Putting On The New Man

Ephesians 4:17-24 “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”
 
Faith in Jesus Christ changes us like nothing else can. We no longer think or act like we once did. The things of this world become secondary to us, and we focus more on eternity rather than on our present situation and circumstances. We are spirit beings that are finally awakened to the truth, and we can rise above our mundane tendencies and take on the very nature of almighty God Himself.
 
When we are born again in our spirit man, all things become new for us. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is gradually transformed until it becomes godly like that of our Lord and Savior. We begin to think like He thinks, say what He says, and do what He does. We imitate His laid down life and become holy as He is holy. We sanctify ourselves of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions.
 
Everything that we do will be affected by our faith. We are accepted in the beloved and restored to right standing with our Creator. If we are contrite in heart and have teachable spirits, the Lord will reveal our divine destinies to us and then empower us to fulfill them. We will impact the fate of the entire earth, and prepare the way of the Lord, Jesus Christ, to commence His millennial rule and reign.

We will confront all wickedness and evil that we see, and overcome it with good. We will share our faith with power and conviction, so that every man, woman and child that we meet has the opportunity to be redeemed to eternal life, just as we have been. We will serve as godly role models and teach others how to dwell in love, peace and unity together as brothers and sisters, just as the Lord requires of us.
 
Romans 12:1-2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

 
As believers, we must have our minds renewed in the truth. Our Lord and Savior expects us to pursue sanctification, so that we can be imbued with His divine power and authority and enjoy blessings instead of curses. We should present our bodies as living sacrifices, so that we can partner with Him in bringing heaven to this earth in the Kingdom of God.
 
We must imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself and walk as He did while He dwelt among us. We will resume His ministry where He left off and operate in miracles, signs and wonders for all eyes to see. We will rescue all of mankind from destruction and show them how to be born again in their spirits. We will preach the Gospel with power and zeal.
 
Every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation will have an opportunity to repent and be baptized to eternal life. This is the only way that they can be saved and spend all of eternity in the presence of almighty God. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions. We will cast out demons that hold others in bondage, and even raise the dead back to life.
 
Nothing will be impossible to us if we serve the Lord and minister to His people, as we are destined to do. The power of the Holy Spirit of God will work through us to demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and compassion for all mankind. Those who are still lost in sin, darkness and deception will see us as godly role models to guide them into the light of Christ.
 
Titus 2:11-14 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”

 
Jesus came so that we might have life in abundance to the overflow.  He suffered and died for our benefit, and we owe Him our very lives.   His Blood cleanses us of all our unrighteousness, so that we can serve Him and His people. We are the Body of Christ on this earth, and we have divine destinies to fulfill that will impact the fate of all mankind in the critical days to come.
 
Men, women and children are still lost in darkness and deception and we will set them free in the truth. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and see lives changed as never before. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out all demons that hold them in bondage to sin and evil. We will tear down any Satanic strongholds that get in our way and even raise the dead.
 
We will confront all world governments and challenge their leaders to adopt principles of fairness, justice and equality in their dealings with one another. There will be no more oppression or exploitation, no poverty and lack, no remnants of social injustice of any kind. Wars, violence and conflict will be abolished and we will take back this entire earth for the Kingdom of God.
 
There will be peace, order and stability everywhere, even before Christ returns to us. We will restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance. Plants and animals will be in harmony. There will be no more environmental pollution or natural disasters that cause death and destruction in their wake. Even the climate will be regulated, so that it is temperate and predictable.
 
Ephesians 1:17-21 “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what [is] the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, 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:”

 
We are the sons and daughters of almighty God, the Body of Christ on this earth, His holy saints who will inherit His everlasting Kingdom.  Nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days that lie ahead. We will be ambassadors for Jesus Christ, righteous role models, who challenge all men with the truth. We will make eternal life available to all those who are receptive to the Gospel message.
 
Every race, tongue and nation will have an equal opportunity to hear the good news of the Kingdom of God. We will demonstrate the infinite love, mercy and compassion of almighty God Himself for the entire human race. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life once again. We will share all the vast resources of this universe with one another as God desires.
 
The Lord will soon return and commence His millennial rule and reign. He will destroy all wickedness and evil in the wrath of His coming. He will judge all men, and even angels, to determine who has been totally righteous and who deserves never ending punishment. He will cast Satan and all of his demons into the bottomless pit and banish all wrongdoers to the unquenchable lake of fire forever.
 
Christ will share His very own honor and glory with those who are faithful to serve Him and His people. We will receive the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. He will have us judge both men and angels, and appoint us as kings and priests to rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. We will teach all flesh to dwell in love and unity and worship our God.


No Greater Love

Romans 8:35-39 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  
 
Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, demonstrated a love unique in all of creation when He deemed it necessary to visit this earth, become one of us, and save all of mankind from their sins. He knew there was no other way possible for men to be reconciled with almighty God, and He made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf. He actually became sin for us, and then suffered its penalty of death in His very own flesh.
 
Nothing can separate us from such a great love. Neither trials, nor tribulation, no famine, war, pestilence or plague can ever put a wedge between our Lord and His people. Jesus loves us with a deep, abiding affection that boggles the mind and touches the soul. It inspires us to be like Him in every way. He is our role model for selfless devotion, and we should imitate His laid down life in all that we think, say and do.
 
If we are His sincere followers, we will walk in love, just as Christ Himself did. We will minister to one another in mercy and compassion and be tender hearted in all of our personal affairs. We will be humble servants of all mankind, and devote our lives to helping others come to know the Lord, just as we do. All of our words and actions will reflect those of Christ, and we will be His personal ambassadors on the earth.
 
Ephesians 3:17-19 “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”

 
Jesus Christ and all of His attributes dwell richly in us as His disciples, now that we are born again in our spirit man. He has made us the righteousness of God by faith. We have unmerited favor, or grace, with almighty God, and we have been accepted in the beloved as His very own sons and daughters. We have a rich legacy of love that works on our behalf, and we are obligated to disburse it to others.
 
It is not the Lord’s desire that anyone perish. We should share our faith with all those we meet. Every man, woman and child will benefit from our ministry to them. If we walk in love and demonstrate the infinite mercy and compassion that the Lord has for those who are still lost in their sins, it will always reap a tremendous harvest. We will see countless numbers of souls redeemed to eternal life.
 
Others will be drawn to us if we show them God’s love and communicate His message of reconciliation, as we should. They will not be able to resist our efforts if we are truly humble and sincere. We can never criticize or find fault with them. Conviction of sin is the role of the Holy Spirit. Our responsibility is to lead and guide the lost and forsaken with the love of Christ that is shed abroad in our hearts.
 
We will not beat others up with our Bibles or threaten them with hellfire and damnation. It is the goodness and kindness of almighty God that leads men to repentance. We will tell them how much our heavenly Father loves them and longs for their fellowship. The Kingdom of God is open to all of the righteous and obedient. No sincere man, woman or child will be denied access to the Lord’s presence.
 
1John 3:21-24 “Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, [then] have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.”

 
Without love, none of us can be totally righteous in God’s eyes. God is love and those who dwell in love, dwell in God and He dwells in them. We must be loving and caring at all times and under all situations and circumstances, just as our Lord and Savior was. We are His representatives on this earth and we must keep His commandment to love the Lord and others, as we love ourselves.
 
If our hearts do not condemn us, then we have confidence towards almighty God, and we know that we receive whatever we ask of Him. Because we have His very own nature, He can trust us with all good things. We are empowered to serve His people in our divine destinies and we know that every need – for ourselves and for others – will be met according to His riches in glory.
 
The Lord will provide all that we require to lead happy, productive lives. He will never leave us or forsake us; He will be with us in everything that we are called to endure. He will lead us and guide us by the power of His Holy Spirit and protect us from all evil. Very soon now, He will even gather us to Himself for all of eternity, so that there will never be a separation between God and man.


Fables And Falsehood

2Peter 2:1-3 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”
 
There are many misguided souls that think all paths lead to God. This is a lie from hell that needs to be confronted and dispelled in these critical last days. Only false teachers, with hidden agendas, promote such heresy and propagate these errant theories. They will be severely judged and condemned to everlasting punishment for all their attempts to lead God’s people astray.
 
There is only one way to be reconciled with God. That is through the cross of Jesus Christ. Unless a man is born again in his spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of almighty God and receive the gift of eternal life. That is accomplished only through a sincere faith in all that Christ has done for us. If we do believe, and confess Him as our Lord and Savior, we will be saved.
 
We should also be baptized with water and with the Holy Spirit to seal our redemption. Water baptism is an outward sign of an inward change that has taken place in us. Our minds are renewed in the truth, and our behavior is gradually transformed until it becomes godly. Believers are made the righteousness of God by our faith, and adopted as His very own sons and daughters.
 
Titus 1:14 -16 “Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. Unto the pure all things [are] pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving [is] nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”

 
We cannot experience the power of salvation unless we have been born again by the Holy Spirit of God. He will convict us of all sin and lead and guide us into the truth. He only tells us what the Lord Himself wants revealed. He keeps it simple and basic so that we are not confused. The Lord wants all of mankind to be reconciled with Him through faith in His beloved Son, Jesus Christ.
 
When we confess Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior all things become new for us. Our lives are changed as never before. We learn God’s ways and begin to walk as He did on this earth. We love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and we love others, as we love ourselves. Our behavior is radically transformed as we grow and develop into full spiritual maturity.
 
Our divine destinies are ultimately revealed to us. We are the sons and daughters of almighty God who will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. We will preach the Gospel with authority and enthusiasm, and see many souls baptized to eternal life as a result. We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders, and accomplish great feats through the power of the Holy Spirit.
 
We will lay hands on the sick and they will be healed of all their afflictions. The blind will see; the deaf will hear and the lame will walk. We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage to their sin. We will even raise the dead back to life once again, just as Jesus did. We will overcome all wickedness and evil with good, and take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of almighty God.
 
2Timothy 4:2-4 “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

 
Believers will impact the fate of the entire human race in the critical days to come. Although many will be lost in sin, darkness and deception, confused by false doctrine, we will reveal the truth to them. We will share our faith with power and conviction, and persuade them to turn towards almighty God. We will make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child in every nation of the world.
 
The Gospel message will set men free as never before.  We will preach Jesus Christ in all of His majesty and glory – victorious over sin, death and the grave. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be saved. Very soon now, Christ will return to gather all of the faithful to Himself for all of eternity. No righteous person will ever be denied entry into the everlasting Kingdom of God.
 
We will dwell in Jesus Christ’s awesome presence in a literal paradise on this earth. He will banish Satan and all of his minions to the abyss and cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire. He will take vengeance on all our enemies, destroy all wickedness and evil, and punish any false teachers who have attempted to mislead us. There will be nothing remaining to defile either God or man ever again.


Walking In The Light Of Christ

Romans 13:12-14 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to [fulfil] the lusts [thereof].”
 
The whole world lies in a web of sin, darkness and deception, and things will only worsen in the days to come. However, the followers of Jesus Christ are truly unique among their peers. We choose to walk in the light, just as Jesus Himself once did. Our Lord and Savior is able to operate through us to demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and compassion for the entire human race.
 
Believers will imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ and put on the new man. We will encourage one another to sanctify ourselves of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions, and present our bodies as living sacrifices to almighty God. He will be able to use us as His ambassadors for the Kingdom of God, and we will bring heaven itself to this earth realm, as we are destined to do.
 
All of mankind will learn to be loving and obedient to do whatever God asks, or risk banishment to the eternal lake of fire. There will be no more greed or power struggles anywhere. Social injustice of all types will be eradicated off the face of the earth. Any oppression and exploitation of the weak and vulnerable will cease. We will all learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters.
 
We will bring peace, order and stability to all of our affairs, even before Christ returns to us. There will be no more wars, violence or conflict anywhere. Poverty and lack will disappear, as we learn to share all the vast resources of the universe with one another. There will be no more artificial, social class barriers that separate us. All men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
  
Colossians 1:12-15 “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”

 
We are saints in light, the sons and daughters of God Himself. We are no longer deceived in our sins or oppressed by Satan, the enemy of our souls. We have been translated into the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who is the express image of God, the firstborn of every creature. Through a sincere faith in Him, we have become joint-heirs to the everlasting Kingdom of God with all of its many benefits.
 
There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us. We have access to both spiritual and temporal blessings. He reveals our divine destinies to us and then equips us to fulfill them, so that we can reap generous rewards for our service to others. He wants us to share the Gospel throughout the entire world. We will make salvation available to all who are receptive and baptize countless souls to eternal life.
 
Every man, woman and child will have an opportunity to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will enter into the Kingdom of God. We will all dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. There will be no strife and division among us, no quarreling or dissension. The Lord wants us all to get along, so that we can spend all of eternity with Him.
 
We must walk in the light that we have and give glory to God in everything that we think, say and do. All men will be looking to us for guidance and direction in the days that lie ahead before Christ returns. We have to demonstrate that we are God’s very own sons and daughters by our behavior. We are future kings and priests of almighty God, and it is vital that we use wisdom and discretion in all of our personal affairs.
 
Matthew 5:14-16 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

 
We should be godly role models for others at all times and walk in the light of Christ Himself, as we have been taught. The Lord wants to demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and compassion for all of mankind through us. We will resume the ministry of Jesus and do the very works that He did, plus even greater works. We will operate in miracles, signs and wonders through the power of His Holy Spirit.
 
Nothing will be impossible to us as we embrace our eternal callings as the Body of Christ on the earth. We will preach the Word of God and baptize many souls to eternal life. We will lay hands on the sick, and they will all recover.  We will cast out demons in Christ’s name and set men free from their bondage to sin and evil. We will even raise the dead back to life once again, just as our Lord and Savior did.
 
All of creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons and daughters of God. We will restore nature to its original beauty and balance. Plants and animals will be in total harmony and subject to man once again. We will reverse the adverse effects of environmental pollution and make certain that the climate is always temperate and predictable. There will be no more natural disasters that ever cause destruction.
 
We will destroy all Satanic strongholds that get in our way or threaten to impede our progress. The Kingdom of almighty God will be advanced everywhere we go. We will bring heaven’s way of doing things to this earth, so that Jesus Christ can return to us to commence His millennial rule and reign. We will prepare the way of the Lord and encourage mankind to receive Him as their glorious King.
 
John 8:12 “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

 
We no longer have to struggle with sin and darkness. We are not blinded to the truth nor forsaken by our God any longer. We have eyes to see and ears to hear. Jesus Christ came to us as the light of the world, and those who walk in His ways have His glorious light available to them. We have received forgiveness for all of our sins and eternal life with all its many blessings.
 
Jesus was our role model for righteousness and godliness. He showed us how to make our way in this life and to rule and reign just as He did. We are more than conquerors through Him, and we will inherit His everlasting Kingdom one day in the near future. We are kings and priests in training for reigning, and we must imitate our Lord and Savior in all we think, say and do.
 
There are many human beings throughout the world who are still lost in their sins, and they need our help to find their way. We should share our faith with enthusiasm and make redemption available to every man, woman and child that we meet. We will persuade them to repent, believe in Jesus Christ and be baptized in His holy name, so that they can be saved just as we have been.
 
We will gather all of the righteous and obedient into the everlasting Kingdom of God. No one who is born again in their spirit will be left behind. We will all dwell in love, peace and unity with one another, as the Lord requires. Very soon now, almighty God will actually come and take up residence with His beloved children. It will literally be heaven on this earth for all eternity.
 


Chapter 5 – Enlightenment Through His Holy Spirit

Psalm 18:28 “For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.”
 
The entire world is caught up in an intricate web of darkness and deception. Men call evil good and good evil. We are weak and confused, susceptible to wickedness of all sorts. The enemy has blinded our eyes to the truth and stolen our hope for the future. We desperately need the wisdom of the Lord to show us how to survive in the difficult days to come before Jesus Christ returns to the earth.
 
The Lord wants to enlighten His people. We no longer have to experience defeat. Christ came so that we might have life in abundance and be reconciled back to almighty God, as it was planned from the very beginning. We were meant to be in intimate fellowship with our Creator, and to dwell in paradise with Him for all of eternity. He has divine destinies planned for each and every one of us.
 
We must repent of our sinfulness and believe in the Son of God and what He accomplished on our behalf. If we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, all things become new for us. We are translated out of the kingdom of darkness into His marvelous light. We are forgiven of our sins and made righteous by faith. We are no longer under the curse, nor subject to its penalty of death.
 
The Lord no longer imputes our sin guilt to us for any reason. We are now heirs to eternal life with all of its many blessings. He views us as His very own sons and daughters, accepted in the beloved. We can communicate with Him on a regular basis, and receive divine knowledge and understanding through His Holy Spirit. Almighty God wants us to operate in His very own power and authority.
 
Ephesians 1:12-14 “That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also [trusted], after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”

 
When we were born again in our spirits we received the remission of all our sins, plus the gift of eternal life. The Holy Spirit of almighty God Himself came upon us and made us righteous for all time. We are no longer estranged from our Creator. We are His beloved sons and daughters, joint-heirs with Jesus to all of His promises. We are in intimate fellowship with our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.
 
There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us – spiritual or temporal. We can approach the throne of grace with total confidence and have every prayer answered even before we speak it. Our God will reveal Himself to us and fill us with His wisdom and understanding, so that we can solve even the most complex problems. Nothing will be impossible to us if we ask the Lord for divine revelation.
 
His heightened insight and perception will help us to excel in every area of our lives. We will be humble followers of Jesus Christ with a confident hope for the future.  We will serve as righteous role models to others and be successful in all of our personal relationships. We will be blessed above all our peers and teach others how to hear from God. We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good.
 
The Holy Spirit is the earnest of our inheritance, a down payment for what we can expect in the future. We will learn to think like God thinks, say what He says and act like He does. We will have access to all the deep mysteries of our faith, as well as practical solutions to everyday matters. We now have the mind of Christ and His truth is operating in each and every one of us, so that we can prevail in all that we do.
 
Luke 11:13 “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall [your] heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”


However, there is an even more profound spiritual experience that we can all have. If we pray and ask the Lord to baptize us with His Holy Spirit, we will go even deeper in our relationship with Him.  Almighty God will actually indwell us and permeate our very being, so that we begin to manifest personal attributes like His very own, that are known as “spiritual fruit.”
 
The Lord will fill us with faith, hope, peace and joy. We will become good, gentle, meek, temperate and longsuffering. Our relationships with God and with others will be enhanced, and we will grow and develop into full spiritual maturity as the sons and daughters of God. Our divine destinies will be revealed to us, so that we can impact the fate of the entire human race.
 
We will imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself and walk in miracles, signs and wonders, as we resume His ministry on this earth even before He returns to us. We will preach the Gospel as He has commissioned us to do. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions. We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage to their sin, and even raise the dead.
 
Nothing will be impossible to us, if we walk in the Holy Spirit instead of our flesh. We will be imbued with divine power and authority to destroy demonic strongholds, and take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of almighty God. We will be anointed as His personal representatives, and both men and angels will defer to us, as we serve the Lord and His people.
 
1Corinthians 2:9-12 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”

 
The Lord will demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion for all mankind through us. We will operate in the power of His very own Holy Spirit and give others hope and confidence for their future. We will confront all world governments and make certain that only godly principles are employed in their dealings with one another. We will eliminate all wars, violence and conflict.
 
There will be peace, order and stability established in all of our human affairs. No one will be oppressed or exploited any longer. Social injustice will become a thing of the past. Poverty and lack will disappear, as we persuade those who are affluent to share their wealth with those who are less fortunate. All men, women and children will soon be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
 
The Holy Spirit will show us things to come and reveal all truth to us. We will advance the Kingdom of God on this earth, just as it is in heaven. All the resources of the universe will be released to God’s people, so that we can enjoy life abundantly to the overflow. We will be blessed beyond belief, and generously rewarded for all of our faithful service to the Lord and to His people.
 
The Lord, Jesus Christ, will soon return to establish His everlasting Kingdom on this earth. He will boast of us to all of creation and share His very own honor and glory with us. We will judge both men and angels, and be appointed kings and priests of God. We will enforce godly principles of fairness, equality and justice, as we rule and reign with Jesus over all the nations of the world.


Deep Mysteries and Hidden Secrets

Corinthians 2:6-9 “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
 
When almighty God created man, He intended for us to dwell with Him in paradise for all of eternity. However, temptation, sin and death entered into the picture and spoiled His perfect plan for us. We are fashioned in His very image and likeness and the Lord longs for fellowship with His people, but we have to be restored to our innocence before we can dwell in His holy presence.
 
The Lord knew that if He came down to the earth that He could set matters straight and gather us to Himself once again. He did just that in the person of Jesus Christ. However, the demonic powers and principalities that plotted against Adam and Eve from the beginning did not realize that Christ’s suffering and death played such a crucial role in the salvation of all of mankind.
 
They would not have crucified Jesus if they understood the mystery of the atonement. Jesus was born one of us, so that He could be our sacrificial substitute. He took on all of the sins and generational iniquity of the entire human race in His very own flesh. When He died, all men were set free as the Lord planned and purposed. Jesus paid the penalty of death for each and every one of us.
 
Christ’s resurrection from the dead brought eternal life to everyone who believes in Him. We are made righteous again by our faith and restored to our original relationship with the Father. We have become His very own sons and daughters now, and we have dominion over the entire earth reinstated to us. We will soon bring heaven itself to this planet in the Kingdom of almighty God.
 
1Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

 
Perhaps the deepest mystery of our faith is yet the most critical for our understanding. We should be aware of the fact that almighty God loved mankind with total abandon, despite our fall from grace in the Garden of Eden. He made arrangements to visit the earth as a mere man in the form of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem us from all of our sins and restore us back to Him.
 
Jesus did not come to condemn the human race or to punish us for all of our transgressions, as some might think He did. He came to be our sacrificial substitute and our role model for righteousness. He, who was without sin, actually became sin for us, and then satisfied its curse of death in fulfillment of the law. Christ suffered and died, so that we would not have to endure the same fate.
 
He defeated all the works of darkness with His agonizing death and resurrection. He overcame sin, death and the grave and made eternal life available to every man, woman and child who believes in Him. We now have hope and confidence for our future. Our Lord and Savior will soon return to complete our redemption in soul and body, and gather us to Himself for all eternity.
 
Jesus Christ was, and still is, God Himself in all respects. His deepest desire is to dwell with men and provide for all our needs in abundance. He wants to protect us from all harm and nurture us as only a father can do. He will take vengeance on all our enemies; heal all our pain and suffering; and restore all that was stolen from us. We will lack no good thing in His awesome presence.
 
Colossians 1:27-28 “To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:”

 
Believers struggle to know the truth concerning our identity. We are often confused by what God reveals to us, and He has to make it plain with His Word. The Bible tells us that we are righteous by our faith and that Christ actually dwells in us.  That means that we can all attain to spiritual perfection, just as our Lord and Savior did when He walked among us as a mere man.
 
Christ was the firstborn of many sons and daughters of God. If we imitate His laid down life and do what He did, we can develop into full spiritual maturity. We can become wise and understanding, strong and gentle, meek and yet confident. We can lead many others to the truth, if we operate in the power of the Holy Spirit and share the Gospel as we are ordained to do.
 
Although Christ is no longer with us in the flesh, He will demonstrate His very own, love mercy and compassion for all of mankind through us as His Body on this earth. We will perform miracles, signs and wonders for all eyes to see. The sick will be healed of all their afflictions. We will cast out demons that hold men in bondage, and even raise the dead back to life.
 
Our Lord and Savior will be glorified through us and we will be generously rewarded for all of our efforts on His behalf. Jesus will appoint us to be kings and priests to His people. We will judge both men and angels. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will rule and reign with Christ Himself over all the nations of the world.
 
Ephesians 1:9-13 “Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 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. In whom ye also [trusted], after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,”

 
Almighty God ultimately plans and purposes to unite all things – both in heaven and on the earth – in His Son, Jesus Christ. Believers will be glorified with Him, since we are now the righteousness of God by faith and joint-heirs to all of His promises. We are individual family members of the divine household, and we will work together to usher in the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God to the earth realm.
 
Very soon now, the Lord, Jesus Christ, will return to this world to commence His millennial reign. He will judge all men, and even angels, to determine who has been righteous and who deserves never ending punishment. He will banish Satan and all his minions to the bottomless pit and cast all evildoers into the unquenchable lake of fire where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth for all eternity.
 
Only those who are righteous and obedient will enter into the Kingdom of God. There will be nothing there that defiles either God or man ever again. We will all know the Lord; His laws will be written in our minds and hearts. The Lord will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters, and Christ will share His very own honor and glory with all those who have faithfully served Him and His people.
 
The Kingdom of God will literally be a paradise for all those who enter into it. The Lord will actually come to this world and dwell with His people. We will all relate to one another as brothers and sisters, and there will finally be peace, order and stability in all of our lives. Our God will meet all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him, and Jesus Christ will be Lord over us all forever more.


The Spirit Of Truth

1Corinthians 1:4-7 “I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and [in] all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall also confirm you unto the end, [that ye may be] blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
 
When the Lord looks at us, He sees Jesus in all of His perfection. We are His finished work, a tribute to His unselfish sacrifice on our behalf. We are restored to righteousness and are blameless before Him. We now have grace with almighty God, unmerited favor in everything that we do. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us if we have made Jesus the Lord of our lives.
 
The Son of God not only canceled our sin debt with His death on the cross, but He also taught us the mysterious ways of the Father during His ministry on this earth. We have been edified in all truth. We have divine wisdom and supernatural understanding readily available. We are blessed beyond belief to have eyes that see and ears that hear what the Lord desires to share with His people.
 
Almighty God wants us to understand all the secrets of the universe, so that we can take dominion over all creation, as we have been destined to do. He will teach us all that we need to know through the power of His Holy Spirit that works in us to enlighten us in all things. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, and leads and guides us in everything we think, say and do, so that we can prevail at all times.
 
Romans 15:13-14 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.”

 
Believers are blessed to walk in the Spirit. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has taught us everything that we need to know to rule and reign in this life and in the everlasting Kingdom to come. He will soon return to commence His rule and reign, but in the interim, He expects us to resume His ministry where He left off and consecrate all of our efforts in service to Him.
 
As the Day of the Lord approaches, we should exhort and encourage one another in our faith. We have been given all spiritual knowledge and understanding, so that we can enlighten and edify all men with the truth of the Gospel message. We will share our faith with power and conviction, and persuade others to repent and be baptized in Jesus Christ’s holy name.
 
Salvation to eternal life with all of its many blessings will be made available to all those who are receptive. No righteous person will ever be denied entry into the Kingdom of God. It will absorb all earthly nations, governments and kingdoms and advance over the entire face of this planet. We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Christ as their righteous King.
 
We will give the human race hope and confidence for the future. Wickedness and evil will soon be totally abolished from the earth. When Jesus returns, He will destroy all ungodliness in the wrath of His coming. He will cast Satan and all his minions into the abyss and banish all wrongdoers to the unquenchable lake of fire. There will be nothing left to defile God or man.
 
John 16:13-15 “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.”

 
The Holy Spirit is our Comforter and our Counselor. He will encourage us on our spiritual journey and lead and guide us into all truth. He will speak only what Jesus Christ tells Him to speak, and He will always glorify our Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of almighty God and He reveals Himself to all those who are receptive. He will show us things to come and enable us to discern the ways of God.
 
We cannot understand spiritual matters unless we operate in the Holy Spirit. It is mere foolishness to men in this world. We cannot comprehend supernatural things with our physical senses or mundane thinking.

Our minds have to be renewed in order for us to understand what God wants to reveal to us. We have to develop eyes that see and ears that hear in the invisible realm, so that we can apprehend all spiritual truths.
 
The Holy Spirit is always speaking to us, but we become dull witted if we do not exercise our spirit man. We can also be easily distracted if we focus on earthly situations and circumstances. We must go deeper in our relationship with the Lord and spend quality time in prayer and meditation, if we wish to hear from Him. We will never be disappointed if we sincerely seek divine revelation and then wait patiently for it.
 
Acts 2:17-18 “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:”

 
Various manifestations of the Holy Spirit are available to us. These charismatic gifts are distributed by the Spirit of God at His discretion. Most individuals receive the ability to speak in supernatural tongues. Some have gifts of prophecy, words of wisdom or words of knowledge to share with others. Still others can interpret tongues, see visions, perform healings or work other miracles, as the Holy Spirit sees fit.
 
In these last critical days before the Lord, Jesus Christ, returns to the earth to set up His everlasting Kingdom, there will be a huge, unprecedented outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all believers. We will glorify our God by walking in miracles, signs and wonders that attest to our faith. The Holy Spirit will work in us to refine us and work through us to reach all those who are still lost in sin and darkness.
 
Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be called and saved. Men, women and even children will be filled with the Holy Spirit and accomplish great feats for the Lord. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and conviction – a last curtain call for all of mankind before the great and terrible Day of the Lord. We will make salvation available to all those who are receptive.
 
Believers will be spared the wrath to come and be gathered to the Lord forever more. The Kingdom of God will be open to all those who are righteous and obedient. The Lord will make certain that we have all of our needs met in abundance. He will actually come to this earth and dwell with His people. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for all of eternity.


Spiritual Discernment

Isaiah 29:24 “They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.”
 
Religion kills the spirit and makes human beings feel that they are never quite good enough to please God. It is based on demonic lies that are designed to separate us from our Creator. That is why it is critical that we hear from the Lord direct and listen to what He tells us. He sent Jesus Christ to this earth to reconcile men back to Him for all time. If we believe in the Son of God and all that He did, we will be saved.
 
One of the greatest challenges that we face as new believers is to discern between right and wrong.  If we pray and ask the Lord for the baptism in His Holy Spirit, that will become much easier for us as time progresses. We learn to distinguish the sacred from the profane. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is transformed, so that we eventually become godly in everything we think, say and do.
 
We must train ourselves to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. God always communicates with His people, but we sometimes put up barriers to that. We murmur and complain. We try to do things in our own strength and then mess them up. We blame God for our mistakes and fail to repent of our rebellion.  When that happens, we need to get back to the basics of our faith. We should pray, meditate and study the Word.
 
If a spirit of error should ever creep in to confuse us, we can rely on almighty God to correct us. His Spirit convicts us of any sin and leads and guides us into all truth. He reveals God’s express will to us, and then equips us to walk in our divine destinies. This is the very same spirit that Jesus Christ operated in. We will rule and reign in this life if we follow the direction of His Holy Spirit rather than our natural instincts.
 
Hebrews 5:12-14 “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which [be] the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk [is] unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

 
It is important for us to learn to think like God thinks. He does not judge by the sight of His eyes, but with true wisdom and discernment. His are the absolute standards by which we should guide our lives. He sees the inner man of the heart, and even knows what we are thinking. Almighty God wants us to be loving, merciful and compassionate in all our interactions.
 
We have to learn to be Christ-like, so that the Lord can entrust His people to us. They need to be led to the truth and encouraged in their spiritual journey. No one ever benefits from criticism and fault finding. If we think we have all the answers, we will surely be abased. It is hypocritical for any of us to judge another without having all the proper insight that we need.
 
One day, believers will judge both men and angels, but for now, that task is left to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He alone was perfect in all His ways, and He is able to evaluate rightly. Once we have attained full spiritual maturity in Him, we will be delegated that privilege as well. In the interim, we need to have humble, contrite hearts and teachable spirits.
 
Our eyes and ears have to be sensitized to the things of God, rather than mundane matters. We have to go deeper in our relationship with the Lord and strive to understand the mysteries of our faith. The Holy Spirit will teach us all that we need to know, so that we can function optimally as the sons and daughters of God, and usher His everlasting Kingdom into this earth.
 
Malachi 3:16-18 “Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.”

 
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom. We must always maintain a healthy reverence for almighty God, plus respect and encourage one another in our faith. The Lord will never reveal His wisdom and knowledge to those who are proud and arrogant, wise in their own eyes.  The Lord expects us to always be meek and temperate, loving and kind in all of our relationships.
 
He loathes self-righteousness of any kind and He will use the simple things of this world to confound those who think that they know more than He does. If we set ourselves up as the ultimate authority in temporal or spiritual matters, our God will be compelled to humble us, so we do not offend others in any way. He can only work through those who remain deferential and respectful.
 
If we want to learn to think like God thinks, we need to spend quality time in His presence. He delights in sharing Himself with us, and He will never leave us disappointed if we sincerely seek Him. The Lord will not withhold any good thing from His people, and He is elated when we rely on Him for all that we need. He will gladly teach us His ways, so that we can be more like Him.
 
We will learn to discern the sacred from the profane, if we rely on the Holy Spirit to enlighten us. We will be able to judge between wickedness and evil, and be empowered to overcome it with good. The Lord will work through us to minister to those who are still in darkness and deception and rescue them from their plight. We will be righteous and godly role models for all mankind.
 
2Corinthians 4:18 “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal.”

 
We are the sons and daughters of almighty God, created in His very image and likeness. If we have been baptized in His Holy Spirit, then we are capable of doing great and mighty things in His name. We must relinquish our worldly interests, sanctify ourselves and consecrate all our efforts to serve the Lord and His people in the critical days that are coming on the earth.
 
Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will soon return to establish His millennial rule and reign in the everlasting Kingdom of God. However, He expects us to occupy this planet until He appears. We will learn to discern right from wrong almost effortlessly; confront all wickedness that we see; and overcome it with good. There will be nothing left to defile God or man.
 
All of creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. The natural world is ready for peace, order and stability to be reinstated. We will make certain that plants and animals are in perfect harmony. We will regulate our environment and reverse the effects of all pollution, so that there are no more natural catastrophes that cause death and destruction ever again.
 
We will advance the Kingdom of God everywhere we go and in everything that we do. There will be no more wars, violence or conflict in any of our personal affairs. All men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect. Social injustice will be a thing of the past. Poverty and lack will finally be eliminated, as we share all the vast resources of this universe with one another.


Supernatural Understanding

Isaiah 40:13-14 “Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or [being] his counsellor hath taught him? With whom took he counsel, and [who] instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?”
 
Almighty God is the ultimate source for all wisdom, knowledge and understanding. He created all things in His infinite brilliance and by Him all life is sustained. There is no complexity so intricate that He cannot reduce it to its basic simplicity. He wants us to be able to comprehend all the deep mysteries of the vast universe so we can take dominion over it, as He created us to do.
 
The Holy Spirit will reveal all things – both spiritual and temporal – to us, if we seek the Lord and ask Him for enlightenment. He will equip us to be able to grasp whatever we need. We have the mind of Christ, if we have made Him our Lord and Savior. We are no longer lost in sin and darkness; we have come to His glorious light and all things are made plain to us if we consult our God.
 
If we need practical insight about mundane issues or more specific instruction in spiritual matters, the Lord will always come through and assist us in our understanding.   Through the intervention of His Holy Spirit, we will be able to process even abstract concepts and apply them to our everyday lives. He will give us His divine counsel and provide us with the answers to all our questions.
 
The Lord will never leave us ashamed, if we seek His presence and rely on what He tells us. Godly insight will always help us to prevail in anything that we set out to do. The wisdom of this world will leave us lacking every time, but the Lord will direct our paths so that we always have good success. If we focus on what God speaks, we will have a distinct advantage in everything we do.
 
1Corinthians 2:12-13 “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”

 
There is no way that we can ever comprehend all the vast knowledge that is available to us without the Lord’s direct intervention on our behalf. His Holy Spirit teaches us all things. Worldly wisdom will always leave us lacking. The Lord takes delight in confounding those who are wise in their own eyes. He wants us to rely on Him for godly instruction at all times.
 
Believers can and should seek divine knowledge and supernatural comprehension of both spiritual and temporal subjects. It is not presumptuous to pray and ask for the mind of Christ to enable us to prevail in anything we do. It is part of our inheritance now that we have been born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit. The Lord will always honor our requests for insight.
 
He will never disappoint us if we are diligent to pursue what we need. Almighty God delights in our prosperity, and He expects us to excel in every endeavor. We have an obligation to fulfill divine destinies as His sons and daughters, and that requires us to be extraordinarily equipped. We will attract many others to the Kingdom of God if we are wise and understanding.
 
1John 2:27 “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.”


The Lord gives His people an anointing for both spiritual and temporal comprehension. He is the source of all knowledge of good and evil. He prefers that we ask Him what we need to know about anything, rather than act on our own limited resources. Sometimes He simply downloads information to us, while in other instances, we have to pray, meditate, and wait patiently until we receive the answer to our query.
 
Our God always answers our requests for wisdom, knowledge and understanding. His written Word is a tremendous resource for all sorts of information. He also speaks through the power of His Holy Spirit in that small, still voice that brings instant recognition.  Never are we left in the dark, lacking any details that we need. The Lord will never let us down; He longs to share all good things with His people.

If we have an intimate relationship with our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, we will always be privileged to see and hear with supernatural capabilities that exceed all our expectations. The Holy Spirit will never leave us. We have unlimited favor with God because of our right standing with Him, and He will communicate with us on a regular basis, so we have all the vital information that we require.
 
It will not be necessary that we seek human wisdom under any situation or circumstance. We have no need that any man teach us God’s ways. That can only confuse us, since it will almost always be at odds with what the Lord reveals to us Himself. Almighty God leads His chosen ones in the path that they should follow. We must only abide in His Holy Spirit, and we will always be enlightened to the truth.
 
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. ”

 
There is no way that we can rule and reign in this life, as Christ intended for us to do as His followers, unless we have divine guidance and instruction. We must learn to look to the Lord as our source for all good things, particularly wisdom and revelation. We are spirit beings having a human experience in a hostile environment and we need supernatural help. Without His insight, we are like fish out of water.
 
Whenever we are confused or perplexed, we should trust in God and lean not on our own understanding. His thoughts are above our thoughts, and His ways are above our ways. He has the answer to all of our questions, and He will always reveal them to us if we put Him first and acknowledge Him with deference and respect. The Lord will lead and guide us, direct our paths, through the operation of His Holy Spirit.
 
Almighty God has a good plan for His people but we need to tap into His wisdom, so that we can discover it and fulfill our divine destinies. If we seek almighty God first, before we do anything else, we will always succeed in whatever we do. The Lord takes an active interest in the minutest details of our lives. He wants to be our advisor, our confidant and our counselor. He will never leave us or forsake us for any reason.


Guidance Through The Holy Spirit

Psalm 119:104-106 “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.  Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. I have sworn, and I will perform [it], that I will keep thy righteous judgments.”
 
Once we make Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, everything changes for us. We have access to all of the promises of God, including His wisdom and understanding. Our minds are renewed and our behavior is transformed until it actually becomes godly. We learn God’s ways and begin to walk in the truth of them. His Word lights our path and His Holy Spirit guides us.
 
We eventually become spiritually mature sons and daughters of almighty God and He is able to share even deeper mysteries with us. His judgments are all righteous and true, and His commandments are never burdensome. He never asks us to do anything that is not in our best interest. He has great plans for our lives, and He wants to help us succeed in all that we do.
 
In the critical days that lie ahead, it will become increasingly important to consult the Lord and ask Him for guidance before we do anything. The entire world is caught up in a web of darkness and deception, and we might occasionally become misled. The Lord will show us all that we need to know to survive the chaos and confusion, so that we can be protected from all harm.
 
The more we seek the Lord and rely on Him for enlightenment in all our affairs, the better results we will have. We will learn to sharpen our gift of spiritual discernment with a little practice. We will begin to see things like God does, and be able to distinguish good from evil. Nothing and no one will deceive us any longer. We will always hear clearly from His Holy Spirit.
 
Proverbs 2:6-10 “For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: [he is] a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; [yea], every good path. When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;”

 
Godly wisdom is not an option for us. It will mean the difference between our success and our failure. All that we must do is be receptive to the Lord’s direction, and that will prevent us from making serious mistakes. He will make our ways straight and lead us into safe paths. He will preserve His people at all times and gather us into His everlasting Kingdom, as He desires to do.
 
The Lord gets no glory when His people struggle and fall.  We should rely on Him for guidance in every step that we take. He will help us to comprehend His ways and get on the right track.  He will never leave us or forsake us in anything that we pursue. We were created with an eternal purpose in mind and the Lord wants to reveal that to us, so that we can be all that He wants us to be.
 
We have divine destinies as followers of Jesus Christ. We must partner with Him to rescue those who are still lost in sin and darkness. We should be meek and humble servants of the Lord. We will preach the Gospel and make salvation available to every man, woman and child who desires it. Everyone will have an equal opportunity to repent of all sins and receive the gift of eternal life.
 
Proverbs 4:5-7 “Get wisdom, get understanding: forget [it] not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”

 
It is certainly not wrong for us to seek godly wisdom and understanding. That will put us over the top in everything that we attempt to do in this world. Without the Lord’s involvement in our affairs, we can never succeed. With God all things are possible. Each of us should develop our own personal relationship with our Creator. That is an awesome privilege that He will never deny us.
 
The Lord delights in our fellowship and He will withhold no good thing from us. He wants to reveal Himself and share all the vast knowledge of this universe with His people, so that we can take dominion over our environment and prevail in all we do. If we ask Him for guidance and direction, it will always be forthcoming. The Lord will never leave us or forsake us for any reason.
 
Almighty God will equip us to walk in our divine destinies and be godly role models to others. We will lead many others to eternal life through our efforts and shine with His glorious light. Men and angels will defer to us because we represent our God and walk in His ways. We will be gentle and humble, wise and understanding, rightly judging things just as the Lord Himself would do.
 
The people of God will not ever be critical of others. We have eyes to see and ears that hear the truth. We will operate in spiritual discernment and promote what is the absolute best for all of mankind. We will encourage all men to seek the Lord and repent of their sins. We will urge them to believe in Jesus Christ; accept Him as their personal Lord and Savior; and be baptized in His name.
 
Psalm 19:7-8 “The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes.”


We will persuade countless numbers of souls to love the Lord and walk in His ways. The Kingdom of almighty God will be expanded until it covers the entire earth. We will shine with the light of Christ and operate in miracles, signs and wonders through the power of His Holy Spirit. We will teach men to think like God thinks, speak what He says and act like He acts.
 
Men, women, and children will learn to repent of their sins, keep the commandments and be redeemed to eternal life. They will receive wisdom and understanding themselves, so that they can lead others to the Lord in the days to come. All of mankind will have an equal opportunity to enter into the Kingdom of God. We will show them the many blessings that await them.
 
The Lord will actually come and dwell with His people on this earth in the very near future. We will all know the truth, as His laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will walk in love and unity as brothers and sisters. The Lord will supply all our needs in abundance. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom.


Discovering The Will Of God

Romans 12:1-2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

We are always obliged to fulfill the will of almighty God for our lives. After all, we were created for His distinct pleasure to fellowship intimately with Him. However, He cannot abide with evil of any kind. We have to sanctify ourselves of all carnality and selfishness of the soul, and be transformed by the renewal of our minds. We must become holy and perfect, even as He is holy and perfect.
 
The Lord wants all of His people to be righteous and obedient for our own benefit. His commandments are never heavy, demanding or burdensome. They were created to promote peace, order and stability in all of our relationships.  If we are faithful to do everything that our heavenly Father expects of us, we will be able to dwell in His very presence in the everlasting Kingdom of God on this earth.
 
However, before that happens, we must be godly role models to those who are still in the world. We must rescue them from the sin and darkness that threaten to overtake them. We should preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and baptize all those who are receptive to His message. Every man, woman and child will have an equal opportunity to be saved to eternal life with all its many benefits.
 
We will demonstrate the Lord’s deep, abiding love, mercy and compassion for all of mankind. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out any demons that hold others in bondage to sin and evil. The blind will see; the deaf will hear and the lame will walk through our efforts. We will even raise the dead back to life once again, just as Christ Himself did when He walked among us.
 
Ephesians 5:15-17 “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord [is].”

 
The Lord knows that we need a supernatural advantage in the critical days to come. He will grant us wisdom and understanding that we have never had before, so that we can discern good from evil and overcome every attack of the enemy that would thwart our efforts to bring heaven to this earth in the Kingdom of God. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that we encounter.

Only divine knowledge and added insight will help put us over the top and enable us to fulfill our eternal destinies. We must walk circumspectly, be watchful and alert, if we wish to prevail. There are many souls still lost in sin, darkness and deception and they are relying on us to lead them to the truth. It is vital that we hear from the Lord if we are going to succeed in all our efforts on His behalf.
 
He will lead and guide us by the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we can effectively minister to others.  We will be godly role models at all times and share our faith with power and conviction. We will make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child that we meet. No one who desires to hear the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be left behind when He returns to us.
 
Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be called, converted and baptized. This may seem an ominous task, given the fact that there are so many still overcome by the ways of this world, but the Lord is capable of performing awesome miracles through those who are faithful and obedient. He will imbue us with divine power and authority to be His ambassadors to all men.
 
1Thessalonians 5:14-18 “Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all [men]. See that none render evil for evil unto any [man]; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all [men]. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

 
The followers of Jesus Christ will glorify Him in all that we think, say and do. We will embrace our divine destinies and bring heaven itself to this earth. The Lord will work in us and through us to accomplish mighty feats. We will rescue all of mankind from death and destruction if we are diligent. We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders to attest to our faith.
 
None of this will be possible unless we hear clearly and distinctly from almighty God and do everything that He expects of us. We will have to be sanctified and consecrated for His use in ushering in the Kingdom of God.  We will take back this entire earth in the days to come by confronting all wickedness and evil that we see, and then overcoming it with good.
 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will give mankind hope and confidence for their future. We will persuade all world governments to adopt godly principles of fairness, justice and equality. Poverty and lack will soon be eradicated, as we share all of our resources. There will be peace, order and stability established everywhere as a result of our efforts.
 
Believers will intercede for the needs of the entire human race, and pray for Christ’s return to establish His millennial rule and reign. We will present ourselves as His spotless Bride and assist Him in judging both men and angels. Jesus will share His very own honor and glory with us. We will be appointed kings and priests of His people, so we can rule and reign with Him.
 
Colossians 1:9-13 “For this cause we also, since the day we heard [it], do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 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: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his dear Son:”

 
We must discover the Lord’s will for our individual lives, as He ushers in His Kingdom to this earth. That requires that we hear from Him clearly and distinctly, so that we can cooperate with His plans for us. Some of us will be evangelists and healers. Others will be environmental scientists or political activists. Still others will lead by godly example and encourage others in their faith on a more personal level.
 
The Lord will be able to use anyone – man, woman or child – who is sanctified and obedient to do His will in the days to come before Christ returns to set up His millennial rule and reign. He will provide us with supernatural wisdom and understanding to get our jobs done to perfection. Almighty God will call us Himself, then strengthen and equip us to work miracles, signs and wonders in His glorious name.
 
We are His saints in light. We have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness. We can see clearly and hear accurately. The Lord speaks to us continually and leads and guides us in all of our ways. Very soon now, He will gather us to Himself for all of eternity. He will boast of us to all of creation and vindicate us before both men and angels. There is no good thing that God will withhold from us.
 
The Kingdom of God will be heaven on this earth for all those who are counted worthy to enter into it. The Lord will meet all of our needs and protect us from all harm. He will level all playing fields, and restore all that has been taken from us over the years. He will change our mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms. He will actually come and dwell with us and we will thrive in His presence forever more.



Chapter 6 – Divine Destinies Unveiled

Ephesians 1:4-6 “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.”
 
Each and every one of us has a call of God on our lives. We were created in His very image and likeness to fellowship with Him, but sin interferes with that and separates us from our God. We have to be restored to right standing with our Creator through the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, which cleanses us from all unrighteousness, so that we are accepted in the beloved.
 
If we have repented of all our sins and made Jesus the Lord of our lives, there is nothing that stands in our way. We are almighty God’s sons and daughters now through our faith. We will do the very things that Christ Himself once did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with our heavenly Father. We will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God.
 
The Lord will imbue us with divine anointing to act on His behalf. We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders to attest to our faith and minister to His people in love and compassion. We will preach the Gospel, lay hands on the sick, and cast out demons that hold others in bondage to sin. We will even raise the dead back to life through the power of the Holy Spirit.
 
We will make the gift of eternal life available to every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation. Every human being will be given an equal opportunity to be reconciled with God and blessed in abundance.  He will no longer impute our sins to us if we have been born again in our spirits. When the Lord looks at us, we are holy and blameless in His eyes.

2Peter 1:3-4 “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.”

 
Believers are blessed beyond what we could ever ask or think. Now it’s time for us to demonstrate who we are and whom we serve. We can no longer be satisfied with just our own salvation, yet disregard the plight of others. The entire world lies in darkness and deception and men are perishing for lack of knowledge.  We must rise up in the power and glory of God and fulfill our divine destinies.
 
We have to sanctify ourselves of all fleshly lusts and selfish soul ambitions, so that we can be godly role models at all times. We should walk in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We cannot afford to be in strife and division of any kind. We should present our bodies as living sacrifices to almighty God, and consecrate all of our efforts to implementing His eternal redemption plan.
 
It is critical that we hear from God and obey what He tells us to do in the critical days that lie ahead. We have to imitate our Lord and Savior and resume His ministry where He left off. We should preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, and make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child. The fate of all of mankind will be impacted by what we think, say and do.
 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will confront all evil and overcome it with good. We will abolish strife and division from all our affairs. There will be no more poverty and lack in this world. No man will oppress or exploit another ever again. Social injustice will become a thing of the past. We will advance the Kingdom of God wherever we go until Jesus Christ returns to rule and reign.

Luke 8:16-18 “No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth [it] under a bed; but setteth [it] on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.”

 
The Lord has not created and called us, nor redeemed us by the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, to remain isolated from this world. He wants us to partner with Him to rescue many souls from sin and destruction. We have to share His message of unconditional love and forgiveness with the entire human race, so that others can be saved to eternal life, just as we have been.
 
Nothing is hidden from any of us that will not be made manifest in the days to come. We can know the truth and hear from almighty God at any time. He is not keeping any secrets from us. Those who desire to know the Lord can see Him as He is, and hear what He has to say. He loves us with a deep, abiding love and wants only the best for each and every one of us.
 
We must walk in the light of Christ, as we have been taught, and reveal Him to all those we meet. Jesus came to save all of mankind from their sins – past, present and future. By His Blood, we have been made completely righteous in Him and restored to right standing with God. We are entitled to all of the many blessings of eternal life through faith in His finished work.
 
To those who have spiritual insight, more will be given. But to those who lack it in their lives, even what they have will be taken from them. The righteous and faithful will one day enter into a paradise on this earth, but the wicked and rebellious will be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire, where there will be only wailing and gnashing of teeth for all of eternity.
 
Ephesians 4:1-6 “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.”

 
We are the Body of Christ Himself on this earth and nothing will be impossible to us if we walk in peace and unity. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that impede our progress in bringing heaven to this earth in the Kingdom of almighty God. We will overcome all evil with good, and rescue all of mankind from the death and destruction that threaten them.
 
All men, women and children will have an equal opportunity to be saved to eternal life through our efforts. The Lord will operate through His people to draw them to Himself and minister to them in kindness and mercy. He will bind up all the broken hearted and heal all of their wounds. He will vindicate those who are accused and downtrodden before men and angels.
 
Our God will show Himself strong on our behalf and boast of us to all of creation as His very own sons and daughters. He will appoint us to be kings and priests so that we can rule and reign over His people. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. The Kingdom of God is our birthright, a legacy for righteousness and obedience.
 
It will be a literal paradise on this earth for all of God’s people. We will all be righteous; God’s laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will dwell together as brothers and sisters and give God all the thanks and praise that He deserves. Our heavenly Father will come and take up residence with us, and we will thrive in His awesome presence for all of eternity.


Called And Elect

1Peter 2:9-10 “But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past [were] not a people, but [are] now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”
 
Although we were all once lost in our sins and estranged from our Creator, the Blood of Jesus Christ Himself washes us of all our sins – past, present and future. We are now the righteousness of God by faith, and all things have become new for us. We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us.
 
We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. We are called, elect and chosen to fulfill divine destinies in this world. Our presence here at this exact time is no accident of fate. We are sacred vessels for the Lord’s use, created specifically to impact the fate of the entire human race. We are co-laborers with Him to bring heaven to the earth in the Kingdom of God.
 
In the critical days that lie ahead before Christ returns to set up His millennial rule and reign, we will rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing as His followers, and take back the entire earth for our Lord and Savior. We will resume Jesus’ ministry right where He left off and do all the works that He did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with His Father.
 
Isaiah 42:6-7 “I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, [and] them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.”

 
The Lord has chosen and called us to be His representatives on this earth in these last days. We will receive a full anointing of His very own divine power and authority, so that we can act on His behalf. We will share His infinite love, mercy and compassion with the entire human race, and make salvation to eternal life available to all those who are receptive to it.
 
We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every nation of the world. Those who are caught up in a web of darkness and deception will be set free to repent of their sins and follow the truth. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions and cast out demons that hold others in bondage to evil. We will even raise the dead back to life again through the power of the Holy Spirit.
 
Nothing will be impossible to us as we serve the Lord and His people. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk through our efforts. We will work miracles, signs and wonders everywhere we go. We will confront all wickedness that we see and overcome it with good. There will soon be peace, order and stability established in all of our relationships.
 
Social injustice will be a thing of the past when all men are treated with fairness, dignity and respect. We will challenge all world governments to adopt godly principles in their dealings with one another. War, violence and conflict will be abolished. There will be no more poverty and lack, as we persuade others to share all their resources with those who are less fortunate.
 
Ephesians 4:7-13 “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:”

 
Our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. We were specifically called and chosen from the very beginning to receive redemption by the Blood of Jesus Christ and to serve Him and His people. We have divine destinies to fulfill. Some of us are apostles or prophets; others are pastors, teachers and evangelists. We have been commissioned to preach the Gospel throughout the entire world.
 
We will teach all men how to be totally reconciled with God and receive the gift of eternal life. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead, just as Jesus Himself did. We will become fully mature sons and daughters of almighty God, and work miracles, signs and wonders to attest to our faith. We will confront all wickedness and evil that we see and overcome it with good.
 
Whatever we do will be accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Lord will do all that we ask of Him in Jesus’ mighty name. He will imbue us with divine power and authority and assign legions of ministering angels to assist us in all of our efforts on His behalf. We will usher the Kingdom of God into this earth realm, and prepare the hearts of mankind to receive Christ as their King.
 
John 15:16 “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

 
The followers of Jesus Christ have been given dominion over all of creation, as we once experienced in the Garden of Eden. Whatever we ask in Jesus’ name will be given to us to freely enjoy. The Lord wants us to be the head and not the tail. No evil will make progress in our lives. We will rule and reign now and in the everlasting Kingdom to come, for all of eternity.
 
We will bring peace, order and stability to the entire world even before Jesus Christ returns to us. There will be no more wars, violence or conflict in any of our personal affairs. Men will learn to share all their resources with one another, and we will abolish poverty and lack once and for all. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of the weak and vulnerable.
 
In addition to that, we have been given the keys to the Kingdom of God. Whatever we bind on this earth, will be bound in heaven. Whatever we loose on earth, will also be loosed in heaven. The Lord will back us up in all of our efforts. If we bind any demonic operations, they will have to cease. If we release blessings to mankind, they will manifest for all eyes to see.
 
Believers will advance the Kingdom of almighty God and establish His government of fairness, justice and equality everywhere. There will be no more social injustice. All men will be treated with the dignity and respect that they deserve. The Lord will be pleased with all of our efforts on His behalf, and generously reward us for our faithful service to Him and His people.

 
Predestined to Reflect His Glory

Romans 8:28-30 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”
 
The Lord knew us from the very foundation of the world. He formed our inward parts and predetermined the circumstances of our lives according to His eternal plan and purpose. He called us from the womb, so that we could be conformed to the image of His very own Son, Jesus Christ. He arranged for each and every one of us to be redeemed from all our sins and justified by faith.
 
Jesus was the firstborn of many sons and daughters of almighty God. We are joint-heirs with Him to all the promises for righteousness. We are seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. When the Lord looks at us, He sees spiritual perfection and He no longer imputes any sin to us. He accepts us in the beloved and showers us with spiritual and temporal blessings.
 
Those whom God predestined, He called; and those whom He called, He justified by the Blood of Christ. If we voluntarily choose to serve Him and His people, as we should, we will also be glorified with Him. We will be imbued with divine power and authority to be His ambassadors on this earth for the Kingdom of God. We must do all that we can to rescue others just as we have been.
 
It is not God’s will that anyone perish for lack of knowledge in the truth. He wants us to share our faith, so that others can be set free and redeemed to eternal life. We should persuade every man, woman and child whom we meet that God loves them unconditionally and wants only what is best for them. If they repent of all of their sins and believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, they will be saved.
 
2Timothy 4:1-2 “I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

 
Jesus Christ has commissioned His followers to make disciples of all men. It is not His desire that anyone be lost in sin and overcome by darkness. He will soon return to judge both men and angels, and time is running out. There will be no second chances given to anyone. Only those who are righteous, loving and obedient will enter into His everlasting Kingdom on the earth.
 
We have the job of a watchman on the wall and the work of an evangelist to perform on behalf of all mankind.  While we may not always be popular with others, our role in their lives will be essential. Many will stray from the truth and follow lies instead of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in these last days. We will have to gently, but firmly, persuade them to realign their thinking.
 
Believers will be imbued with divine power and authority to act in Jesus’ name. We will share our faith with every man, woman and child that we meet. Many will be converted and baptized through our efforts. We will teach them all how to dwell in love, peace and unity with one another as brothers and sisters, and encourage them to worship almighty God in Spirit and in truth.
 
2Peter 1:5-11 “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make [you that ye shall] neither [be] barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 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.”  

 
The followers of Jesus Christ have a sacred charge that has been given to each and every one of us. We should sanctify ourselves of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions, and consecrate all of our efforts to serving the Lord in the critical days to come on this earth. We have all been bought with a dear price, and we should present our bodies as living sacrifices for His purpose.
 
We must seek the Lord now more than ever. We need to be fully equipped to operate in His name. We have divine destinies to fulfill that require us to have wisdom and knowledge available to us that we may have never had before. The Lord will reveal deep mysteries to us, so that we can share them with others in a meaningful and relevant way that impacts their lives for good.
 
Believers should be godly role models at all times without being pretentious or religious in any way. We cannot attract others to our faith if we think we are better than they are. Each of us has an opportunity to develop a personal relationship with almighty God, and no one can determine where his brother or sister stands. Many who are first now will be last when Christ returns.
 
We should be meek, temperate and patient at all times. We cannot be proud and arrogant, condescending or critical in our dealings with others. It is not our job to find fault with them. Our role is to love them just as they are, pray for them and encourage them in their spiritual journey. Only the Holy Spirit has the right to convict men of their sins, and lead and guide them in the truth.
 
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.”

 
The Lord wants to gather all the righteous and faithful to Himself for all of eternity. The Kingdom of God will literally be heaven on this earth, and Jesus will actually come and dwell with those who are called by His holy name. He will meet all of our needs and protect us from all harm. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His awesome presence.
 
Christ will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us. Our Lord and Savior will banish Satan to the bottomless pit, so that He can no longer oppress or accuse us. He will cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire. There will be nothing that defiles either God or man that ever enters into the Kingdom of God. All men will be righteous and give our God all the praise.
 
Those of us who have been faithful to serve Him and His people will be generously rewarded for our efforts. Jesus Christ will share His very own honor and glory with us. We will assist Him in judging men and angels. He will appoint us to be kings and priests. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

 
Sons And Daughters Of Almighty God

Galatians 4:4-7 “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”
 
The Lord created man in His very image and likeness to dwell with Him for all eternity. However, the first human being rebelled and was cast out of paradise. Wickedness and evil dominated his life until the Lord established His law to keep men in check. Almighty God developed specific guidelines for our behavior, but it was virtually impossible for anyone to be totally obedient, no matter how hard they tried.

Jesus Christ came to this earth as a mere man and was born one of us. He was sinless and obedient in all of His ways, the perfect Lamb of God. He served as our sacrificial substitute in fulfillment of the law, and redeemed all of mankind from all of its sinfulness with His atonement on the cross. Jesus suffered, died and was buried, then rose again from the dead as the firstborn of many sons and daughters of God.
 
We are made the righteousness of God through faith in all that Jesus accomplished on our behalf. He bore the curse of our sins, so that we could be made free to receive the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits. The Lord no longer imputes our sin guilt to us for any reason; we are accepted in the beloved. He views us as His own children, and there is no good thing that He will ever withhold from any of us.
 
Believers are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ to all the promises for righteousness. We are actually seated with our Lord and Savior in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. He wants to fellowship intimately with us, and we can approach the throne of grace without fear, shame, guilt or condemnation. Our heavenly Father promises to meet all of our needs in abundance and to protect us from all harm.  
 
John 1:11-13 “He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 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.”

 
Jesus Christ came to this earth to redeem the chosen people of almighty God, but the majority of them rejected Him. He brought salvation to eternal life to all those who believe in His name. We have been grafted in as the sons and daughters of almighty God and the Lord now looks at us, just as He does Jesus. We are covered by His Blood and entitled to all His promises.
 
We are brand new creatures in Christ – born not of the flesh, but of the Spirit of God Himself. It is His express will to glorify Himself through those who are called by His name. We will be examples of His love, mercy and compassion to all of mankind. We will walk just as Jesus Christ did on this earth, and advance His Kingdom wherever we go and in whatever we do.
 
The Lord has given us eternal callings and divine destinies to fulfill. We will share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation of this world, so that they can be set free in the truth. We will baptize countless numbers of souls to eternal life. Many will ultimately be turned towards the Lord because of our efforts on their behalf.
 
Romans 8:12-16 “Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 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 no longer servants, but beloved children of almighty God, if we have crucified our flesh with all of its lusts. We should walk in the Holy Spirit instead of our flesh. We ought to imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself, and present our bodies as living sacrifices in His service. We must consecrate and dedicate all of our efforts to the coming of His everlasting Kingdom to this earth.
 
Nothing will be impossible to the sons and daughters of God in the critical days to come. The Holy Spirit will work in us and through us to accomplish great feats. We will share our faith with all those who are receptive to it. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions, and cast out demons that hold men in bondage to their sins. We will even raise the dead back to life once again just as Jesus did.
 
We will confront all wickedness and evil that we see and overcome it with good. We will destroy all the works of the devil and set men free in the truth. The fate of the entire human race will be impacted by our efforts. We will establish God’s way of doing things on this earth and usher in His Kingdom, as we are destined to do. There will soon be peace, order and stability everywhere that we go.
 
The Holy Spirit will lead and guide us until the day that Christ returns.  He will boast of us to all of creation. We will share all His honor and glory with Him. The Lord will appoint us to be kings and priests and we will even judge both men and angels. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance, and rule and reign with Jesus over all of the nations of this world.
 
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.”

 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will shine with His glorious light in the days to come. We will be vindicated before both men and angels. The Lord will boast of us to all of creation, and He will fellowship intimately with us for all of eternity. There is no good thing that we will ever lack. Our Lord and Savior will lavish us with eternal blessings and generous rewards for our service to Him and to His people.

Men in this dark and dismal world may not recognize our true identity at this point, but when Jesus Christ appears, we will see Him face-to-face and be like Him in all respects. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us. We will receive new, glorious, resurrection bodies that are like His very own. We will dwell in peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom.
 
The Kingdom of God will be a paradise for all those who are worthy to enter into it. All men will be righteous, as God’s laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will be appointed kings and priests, who rule and reign with Christ for all time. We will teach all mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity and enforce Kingdom standards of fairness, equality and justice in the government of almighty God.

 
Children of Light

1John 1:5-7 “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
 
Jesus Christ came to this earth to save us from all of our sins and to be a righteous role model to all of mankind. He was totally sinless and perfect. In Him there was no darkness at all. He operated under the power of the Holy Spirit and was enlightened to all truth. Jesus taught us that almighty God was the source of all wisdom and knowledge, and that His ways are far superior to ours.
 
Our Lord and Savior did not come to abolish the Old Testament Law, but to fulfill it. He gave us two great commandments which are not optional to us. It is vital that we love the Lord with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength, and that we love others as we love ourselves. If we walk in love, we walk in the light of Christ Himself, and His Blood continually sanctifies us of all of our sins.
 
Believers are the righteousness of God by faith. He no longer imputes our sin guilt to any of us. We have grace, or unmerited favor, with Him. The Lord regards us as His very own sons and daughters – children of light. He teaches us all things by the power of His Holy Spirit, plus leads and guides us. We are now responsible to walk in the light that we have and reflect it for others to see.
 
We must demonstrate the infinite love, mercy and compassion of almighty God Himself for the entire human race. We should preach the Gospel with power and conviction and win many souls to the Lord. We should heal the sick of all their diseases; cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil; and even raise the dead back to life again through the power of the Holy Spirit.
 
1Thessalonians 5:5-9 “Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,”


Our sins no longer have a permanent hold on us. We are not fated to eternal punishment either. We have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness into the glorious light of Jesus Christ. He came to save us from our sins and bring us life in abundance to the overflow. We can rule and reign over all of our situations and circumstances, just as He did when He lived in this world.
 
We have to be sober and watchful, and sanctify ourselves of all carnality just as Jesus did. We have been made the righteousness of God through Him, and we have an obligation to grow and develop into fully mature sons and daughters. It is critical that we guard our faith and walk in love at all times. God has not appointed us to wrath; He wants to gather us to Himself for all of eternity.
 
But first, we have an important task ahead of us. The Lord is in need of our help in rescuing others from sin and darkness. We should shine with the light of Christ and be godly role models at all times. We ought to share our faith with everyone that we meet, and encourage them to repent of all their sins. We must make salvation to eternal life available to all those who are receptive to it.
 
Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.”

 
All of mankind is caught up in a web of darkness and deception. We must confront all wickedness and evil that we see and overcome it with good. The glory of the Lord will be reflected in His people. All men will look to us for guidance and direction in the critical days to come. We will have to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, so that we can lead them to the truth.
 
We will preach the Gospel and baptize many souls to eternal life, just as we have been. We will make salvation available to every race, tongue and nation in this world, as the Lord intends. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be called and converted to our faith. We will prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Jesus Christ as their righteous King.
 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. We will challenge all world governments to establish godly principles as the norm in their dealings with one another. There will be no more war, violence or conflict; we will bring peace, order and stability to all of our lives. Everyone will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
 
We will restore all of creation back to its original beauty and balance. Plants and animals will be in perfect harmony with one another and subject to man once again. The climate will be temperate and predictable, as it was in the Garden of Eden. We will eliminate adverse effects of environmental pollution. There will be no natural disasters that cause death and destruction in their wake.

Philippians 2:13-15 “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 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;”

 
Nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days to come on this earth. Everything that we do will be done by the power of the Holy Spirit of God that operates in and through us to do His good pleasure. The Lord will glorify Himself through those of us who are called by His holy name. He will demonstrate His love, mercy and compassion for all mankind through His people.
 
We will set the standard for godly principles in every area of our lives. There will finally be peace on this earth, as men learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters in the Lord. We will teach them God’s ways and they will be righteous and loving, as He desires. There will be no strife and division among us. Social injustice will be a thing of the past when we are all treated equally.
 
Poverty and lack will be eliminated. We will share all the vast resources of the universe among us. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of one man over another. Power and greed will no longer motivate us to covet others’ advantages and hate without cause. We will be godly role models to the entire human race and advance the Kingdom of God everywhere we go.

 
Ambassadors For Christ

Colossians 2:6-10 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, [so] walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:”
 
We are unique creatures – spirit beings that were created in the very image and likeness of God. The Lord knew us from the foundation of the world and He predestined us for such a time as this. Our presence in this world is of critical importance. We are ambassadors for Jesus Christ and the everlasting Kingdom of almighty God. We will rescue all of mankind from sin and darkness and win many souls to the Lord.
 
The future of the entire human race depends on us. The Lord has destined us to serve His people in these last days before Christ returns to the earth. We will preach the Gospel to the whole world. Every man, woman and child that we meet will have an equal opportunity to be saved to eternal life, as we have been. We will make redemption available to everyone whose name is recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
 
We will tear down demonic strongholds that keep men in bondage to wickedness and evil and set them free in the truth. We will preach Jesus Christ crucified and glorified in all of His resurrection power. We will heal the sick of all their diseases, cast out devils and even raise the dead, just as our Lord and Savior once did. We will advance the Kingdom of God wherever we go and in everything that we do on His behalf.
 
Jesus Christ dwells in each and every one of us who believe in Him. He is completing His ministry on this earth through us. He will demonstrate His infinite love, mercy and compassion through those of us who are called by His holy name. We are His Body in this world and we will operate just as He did. We will restore peace, order and stability to all our affairs and prepare the hearts of all men to receive their King.
 
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.”

 
Believers have been given a sacred charge. We must imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ and share the good news of the Kingdom of God with every human being that we encounter. There is no other way to receive forgiveness from almighty God except through the cross of His beloved Son. No man can ever be righteous in his own strength or through any of his own efforts.
 
Only the Blood of Jesus Christ can cleanse us of all of our iniquity. He was the perfect sacrifice for the transgressions of the entire human race – past present and future. He actually became sin for us, and then suffered its penalty of death in His own flesh. Our redemption is guaranteed if we repent of all of our sins, have faith in Jesus, and accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior.
 
We must give all of mankind hope and confidence for their future. We have been imbued with power and authority from on high to set the captives free and loose men from their bondage to sin and evil. We should be righteous role models at all times, and do our best to persuade others to repent of all their sins and be reconciled with God. The Gospel of Jesus Christ brings true liberty.
 
His disciples must teach all of mankind to be at peace, and dwell together in love and unity as brothers and sisters. The Lord insists that we all get along, so that He can actually come and dwell with us in His everlasting Kingdom. There will be no more strife and division, no wickedness and evil. All men must be become righteous; God’s laws will be written in our minds and hearts.
 
2Corinthians 5:20-21 “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

 
Our role in the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for His people is vital. We must share our faith with power and conviction, so that those who are still lost in sin and darkness can be saved, just as we have been. The Lord, Jesus Christ, has to be raised up for all men to see. We are ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and we must tell others that our God loves them and desires to have fellowship with them.  
 
Jesus came to this earth to redeem all of mankind from never ending condemnation. He actually became sin for us and then paid its penalty of death with His very own life. He suffered and died, so that we would not have to endure the same fate. He became a curse for us, so that we could be blessed in abundance to the overflow. If we repent of sin and believe in Him, we will be saved to eternal life.
 
We are now the righteousness of God by faith. All things have become new for us. We are restored to our right standing with almighty God and entitled to receive all of His promises. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from us. He will meet all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him. Very soon now, He will even gather us to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God.
 
In the mean time, the Lord wants His people healed and whole, prosperous and at peace. We will lay hands on the sick and heal them of all their afflictions. We will cast out demons that hold them in bondage to sin and evil. We will even be able to raise the dead back to life once again, just as Jesus did. We will teach all men to trust the Lord and look to His Holy Spirit for divine guidance in all their affairs.
 
Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.”


Jesus Christ will be with us in all that we do on His behalf. We are His representatives on this earth, and we will resume His ministry right where He left off. We will preach the Gospel and baptize countless numbers of souls in Jesus’ holy name. We will advance His Kingdom wherever we go and in everything that we do.  We will confront all evil that we see and overcome it with good.
 
We will challenge all world governments to adopt godly principles in their dealings with one another. We will eliminate war, violence and conflict from all our human affairs. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of the weak and vulnerable. Poverty and lack will be things of the past. There will finally be peace on earth and all men will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
 
The sons and daughters of almighty God will restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance. The plants and animals will be in total harmony, and subject to man once again as they were in the Garden of Eden. We will regulate the climate and clean up our environment. There will be no more natural disasters or pollution anywhere. The Kingdom of God will be a paradise on this earth.
 
Almighty God will soon come and take up residence with His people on the earth, as He has always desired. He will change these mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in His awesome presence. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom.

 
Kings, Priests And Judges

1Corinthians 6:2-3 “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?”
 
Believers are being groomed for our eternal destinies even while we walk on this earth. The Lord is calling and equipping us to be kings and priests, judges of both men and angels. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance, and it is critical that we hear from the Lord and learn to think like He thinks and judge everything by His perfect, impeccable standards.
 
We are the saints of the most high God, His very own sons and daughters, and the Lord wants us to be fully mature before we assume our roles. We should present our bodies as living sacrifices in service to Him. We have to sanctify ourselves of all carnality and consecrate all of our efforts to consummating His eternal redemption plan for His people. We must walk in the Spirit and not in our flesh.
 
None of us can have our own selfish agenda. We cannot be doing our own thing; this is not a competition. We are to strive for love, peace and unity in all of our affairs, so that we can operate in all of the dominion that the Lord has planned for us. There is strength in numbers, and the Body of Christ will take back this entire earth for the Kingdom of almighty God in the critical days that lie ahead.
 
We will warn all of mankind to repent of their sins and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ before it is too late. We will intercede for our brothers and sisters and encourage them in the one true faith. We will make redemption to eternal life available to all those we meet and baptize countless numbers of souls in Jesus’ name. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be saved.
 
Romans 12:3 “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”

 
Ordinary men, women and even children will usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God to this earth. We will walk in all the divine power and authority of Jesus Christ Himself. Miracles, signs and wonders will follow us wherever we go. We will overcome all evil with good, and destroy demonic strongholds that get in our way. Nothing will be impossible to us if we walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh.
 
However, we cannot think more highly of ourselves than we should. We must remember that the Lord hates hypocrisy of any kind. We cannot set ourselves up as “holier than thou” or serve as critics of others. Almighty God will not tolerate pride and arrogance in any one of us. He loves us all with a deep abiding love that transcends understanding. To those who lack His grace, He is infinitely patient.
 
The Lord does not want anyone to perish for any reason. He desires fellowship more than anything else. We have to share His love and mercy with all of mankind, as we are led. The Holy Spirit will reveal men’s minds and hearts to us, so that we can effectively minister to all of their needs. Some have to receive healing; others require deliverance; everyone needs to experience forgiveness of their sins.
 
We are to be in the world, but not of it. We should be light and salt to those still lost in darkness. We will never be able to lead others out of their bondage to sin, if we are self-righteous or pretentious in any way.  Imposing our moral standards on others is never helpful. We must lead by gentle persuasion and godly example. We will be instrumental in bringing many souls to the Lord by using those tactics.
 
Revelation 3:21 “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”

 
When Jesus Christ returns to the earth, He should find us completing His ministry where He left off. He specifically commissioned us to preach the Gospel to the entire world, so that all of mankind has an equal opportunity to be saved to eternal life. We should share our faith, as we are commanded to do, and baptize all men, women and children who are receptive to our message. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life, just as Jesus Himself did.
 
The fate of the entire human race will be impacted by our efforts. We will make redemption available to all those who choose to follow the Lord and walk in His ways. We will gather all of the righteous into the Kingdom of God and warn all those who are rebellious that they may not receive another chance to repent. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be called, converted and baptized in Jesus’ mighty name so that they can inherit His Kingdom.
 
All of creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God, to restore it to its original beauty and balance. We will command total harmony to the plant and animal kingdoms. There will be no more predatory spirit that causes extinction of any species. The climate will be regulated to be temperate and predictable. We will abolish all the natural catastrophes that cause death and destruction in their wake. All of the adverse effects of environmental pollution will cease.
 
The Lord will be pleased with all our efforts to overcome evil with good. He will share His very own honor and glory with us. We will be appointed as kings and priests. We will be judges and overseers, mediators and benefactors to all Kingdom residents. We will teach men and angels to dwell together in love and unity as brothers and sisters. We will enforce Kingdom principles in the government of God on the earth and fellowship intimately with our heavenly Father.
 
Zechariah 3:7 “Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.”

 
The followers of Christ will challenge all world governments to adopt godly principles of fairness, equality and justice in dealing with one another. We will eliminate all wars, violence and conflict from our midst. Poverty and lack will be things of the past. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of the weak and vulnerable. Everyone will be treated with dignity and respect.  
 
All the vast resources of the universe will be given to God’s people for their enjoyment. We will restore all of creation back to its original beauty and balance. Plants and animals will be in perfect harmony and subject to man once again as they were in the Garden of Eden. There will be no more environmental pollution or natural disasters that ever cause death and destruction.
 
There will be peace, order and stability established wherever we go and in whatever we do. There will be no more defilement or contamination that remains in any of our lives. The entire earth will reflect the majesty and glory of God as it manifests through His people. We will advance His everlasting Kingdom everywhere, so that heaven itself can be brought here for all eternity.
 
If we have served the Lord and His people faithfully, as we are destined to do, we will be generously rewarded for all our efforts. Our God will boast of us to all of creation as His very own sons and daughters, and we will rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world. The Kingdom of almighty God will be our eternal inheritance for righteousness and obedience.

 

Chapter 7 – A Glimpse Of Things To Come

Isaiah 42:9 “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.”
 
We often speculate about the future of mankind. The world, as we know it, will never end, but it will be radically transformed to line up with godly standards. Men have grown increasingly wicked, and we know that almighty God will soon intervene. Exactly how He will act remains somewhat of a mystery, but we can catch a glimpse of things to come if we search His Word and heed His warnings.
 
Our vision will not always be clouded, nor will our hearing be permanently impaired. The Lord will reveal the truth plainly to His people, so we know exactly what to do when He sovereignly moves to obliterate the sin and darkness that threaten us. He promises that the righteous will be spared His wrath and indignation in the days to come, but those who are wicked and rebellious will ultimately perish.
 
We should seek the Lord while He can still be found, and ask Him for His guidance and direction. He will never leave us or forsake us. He will always tell His people what He is about to do, and exactly what He expects of them. We know that Jesus Christ will soon return to level all playing fields. He will destroy the ungodly and all of their ungodliness. Nothing will remain to defile either God or man.
 
Mark 13:24-27 “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.”

 
There is a severe tribulation coming on all of us in the very near future. The devil knows that his time is short and he is wreaking havoc everywhere. He wants to destroy all of mankind, so that we cannot claim our eternal inheritance. He will bring horrible things to pass on this earth and turn men against one another until there is increased conflict and violence, death and destruction.
 
Demonic influence will appear to overcome each and every one of us. Greed and lust will run rampant. Men’s hearts will grow cold and many will depart from the one, true faith. Some will oppress and exploit those who are weak and vulnerable. Plagues and pestilence, natural disasters, poverty and lack will all threaten our peace. Men’s hearts will fail them for fear of what is happening.
 
The Lord will not permit evil to prevail indefinitely. He will intervene on our behalf to settle all scores. He will take vengeance on all our enemies. There will be signs in the heavens and on earth that warn us of the great and terrible Day of the Lord that will soon transpire. Our God is trying to get our attention before it’s too late. It is not His desire that any man perish in the days to come.
 
Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will return to the earth when we least expect Him. However, He will not be a babe in the manger or a meek and mild Lamb of God this time. He will destroy all evil in the wrath of His coming and judge both men and angels to determine our eternal fate. Jesus will banish Satan to the bottomless pit and cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire.
 
John 3:36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”

 
Those who believe in Jesus Christ and all that He accomplished on our behalf will be spared His wrath. He will gather all of the righteous to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God. He will change our mortal bodies that are prone to disease and death into glorious, resurrection forms like His very own. We will enjoy good health and vitality in His awesome presence forever.
 
The Kingdom of God will be paradise on the earth for all those who are faithful and obedient. We will dwell in love, peace and unity with one another as brothers and sisters. The Lord will supply all of our needs even before we ask Him. He will protect us from all harm and take vengeance on all of our enemies. Jesus Christ will restore all that has been taken from His people.
 
God’s laws will be written in our minds and hearts for all eternity. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth and give Him all the praise, honor and gratitude that He so deserves. Those of us who have served Him faithfully will receive generous rewards. We will judge both men and angels, and be appointed kings and priests to rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all of creation.
 
2Peter 3:13-14 “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.”

 
We have an eternal covenant of peace with almighty God as His sons and daughters. He will preserve and protect us in the critical days to come. If we are faithful and obedient, we will be spared His anger and wrath that is coming on all of mankind. This world will not end, but it will be changed to line up with God’s express will. There will be no more wickedness and evil anywhere.
 
Divine order and stability will replace all of the chaos and confusion. There will be no more strife and division, no death and destruction, nor poverty and lack. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and banish all defilement from our midst. He will restore all that has been stolen from us; we will lack no good thing. The Lord will make certain that we are always happy and content.
 
Heaven itself will be brought to this planet in the everlasting Kingdom of God. The Lord will actually come and take up residence with His people. He will supply all of our needs in abundance, and heal all our pain and suffering. Both men and angels will dwell together in love, peace and unity, and celebrate all His sabbaths and perpetual feast days with joy and gladness, as the Lord desires.
 
The Kingdom of God promises mankind a brand new start. We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden. We will no longer be estranged from our God ever again. We will thrive in His awesome presence, and give Him thanks and praise for all the good things that we have in our lives. We will experience peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for all eternity.

 
Things To Come

Isaiah 45:22-23 “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I [am] God, and [there is] none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth [in] righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”
 
Our Creator has a perfect plan in place for His people. He wants to return the entire human race to our roots in the Garden of Eden, so that He can fellowship intimately with us as He always intended. However, there is the matter of sin that must be addressed, in order for man to be restored to right standing with Him. Only an act of God can wipe out our sin debt.
 
We must appropriate His very own righteousness through our faith. No one can enter into the Kingdom of God unless he is born again in his spirit man. We must repent of all our sins, confess Jesus Christ as our Savior and be baptized in His name. Then, and only then, can we be reconciled with God, and inherit the gift of eternal life with all its many blessings.
 
Very soon now, every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim, that “Jesus Christ is Lord.” All mankind will acknowledge Him as their Redeemer or be condemned to never ending punishment. There is no way that we can be saved in our own strength or by any of our good works. The only way to our heavenly Father is through the cross of His beloved Son.
 
Jeremiah 33:2-3 “Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD [is] his name; Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

 
We do not have a cold and forbidding, malicious deity who created us. Our God has a deep abiding love for all of mankind and He wants to provide for all our needs and protect us from all harm. It is not His will that any man perishes for lack of knowledge in the truth. It is His heart’s desire to be reconciled with every man, woman and child, and to gather us all into His everlasting Kingdom.
 
The Lord has made full provision for our redemption and restoration to right relationship with Him. He sent His beloved Son to visit men and set them free from their bondage to sin and evil. Jesus Christ came to this earth to serve as our sacrificial substitute. He suffered and died, so that we could be spared that same fate. His Blood cleanses us of all our sins – past, present and future.
 
We now have grace, or unmerited favor, with almighty God. He views us as His very own sons and daughters. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. He will shower us with His blessings and take vengeance on all of our enemies. The Lord is actually planning on taking up residence with His people, and He will fellowship intimately with us for all eternity.
 
Our part is basic and simple, yet critical to our future. We must believe in His Son and appropriate His very own righteousness by faith. When we do, all things become new for us and we are entitled to all the promises of God. The Lord will make certain that we are safe from all harm. He will answer all of our prayers even before we ask Him.  We will live forever in His holy presence.
 
Hebrews 12:25-27 “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.”

 
The Lord never does anything unless He reveals it to His people beforehand. He wants us fully prepared for what He is about to do. This world will never end but it will be radically changed until it lines up with godly standards. Almighty God will shake all that cannot be shaken, until all that remains complies with His express will. There will be nothing left to defile either God or man.
 
Wars, violence and conflict will be things of the past. Social injustice will not even be named among us. Poverty and lack will disappear forever. There will be no more exploitation of the weak and vulnerable. Once everything is cleansed, the Lord will bring heaven itself to this earth realm and actually come and dwell with His children, as He planned from the very beginning of time.
 
However, nothing that is evil can abide in His holy presence. We will have to purge ourselves of all known sin and be fully obedient to what the Lord asks of us. We have to sanctify ourselves of all carnality and selfish soul ambitions, and embrace righteousness as never before. Very soon now, we will all be judged for our works in the flesh and it would be a pity if we are found lacking.
 
1Corinthians 2:9 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

 
The Lord has a wonderful future planned for His people. We can have hope and confidence that He will act only in our best interest. He is getting ready to sovereignly move over the face of the entire planet, until all things are restored to their original condition. Soon there will be no more wickedness and evil to plague us ever again. It will all be totally destroyed in His wrath and indignation.
 
Jesus Christ will return to this earth in a flourish of power and glory unmatched in all of creation. He will defeat all the enemies of almighty God in one fell swoop. He will settle all scores and level all playing fields. There will be nothing left to contaminate the peace and serenity of life in His Kingdom. The Lord will banish Satan to the abyss and cast all of the wicked into the lake of fire.
 
Our God will never leave us or forsake us. He will rescue His people from death and destruction, and supply all of our needs in abundance to the overflow. The Lord will avenge all wrongs done to us and vindicate us before both men and angels. He will restore all that was taken from us over the years. Our lives will be idyllic; there will be no pain and suffering, no poverty and lack.
 
The Kingdom of God will literally be a paradise on this earth for all those who are righteous, loving and obedient. We are returning to our roots in the Garden of Eden, and there will never be a separation between God and man ever again. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for all of eternity in the very presence of our God.

 
We Must Heed God’s Warnings

Isaiah 42:22-23 “But this [is] a people robbed and spoiled; [they are] all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. Who among you will give ear to this? [who] will hearken and hear for the time to come?”
 
Wise men and women should be able to discern the signs of the times. Things are becoming increasingly dark and dismal in this world. The entire human race is being robbed and spoiled of our birthright by Satan, the enemy of our souls. The Lord wants to intervene on our behalf, before things get any worse. He will sovereignly move to destroy all evil and rescue His beloved children.
 
Now, more than ever before, we need eyes that see and ears that hear the truth. The Lord is calling out to all of mankind and warning us of the wrath to come. He will tolerate no disobedience in any of His people. We have to repent and purge ourselves of all wickedness and evil and pursue righteousness through faith in Jesus. Salvation to eternal life is available to one and all without prejudice.
 
We all need to be redeemed from the hopelessness that comes with bondage to sin. We can be restored to right standing with almighty God once and for all time. There is no reason why anyone should perish for lack of knowledge in the truth. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been preached throughout the whole world.  Every man, woman and child can be set free to enter the Kingdom of God.
 
Jesus Christ suffered and died an agonizing death, so that we do not have to endure the same fate. He removed all of our burdens and destroyed the yokes that held us captive. He was our sacrificial substitute, the total atonement required for the transgressions of the entire human race. Through Christ, we have received forgiveness for all our sins, plus life in abundance to the overflow.

Jeremiah 6:10 “To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear [is] uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.”

 
Eternal life with all of its many blessings is available to each and every one of us. It is not the Lord’s will that anyone perish. He wants to gather all of us to Himself for all of eternity, as He planned and purposed from the very foundation of the world. He has a deep, abiding love for mankind and wants only what is best for us. He sent His Son to redeem us of all our sins and to set us free for all time.
 
However, many will still continue to walk in wickedness and evil, with blatant disregard for the sacrifice that was made on our behalf. They are blind and deaf to the truth. They make the cross of Jesus Christ to no avail in their lives by ignoring God’s warnings. There is no way to be forgiven of all our sins and be reconciled to God, unless we repent and accept Christ as our personal Lord and Savior.
 
Very soon now, we will all be judged to determine whether we will have eternal blessings or never ending punishment. None of us can be made righteous without a sincere faith in what Jesus has accomplished on our behalf. If we reject Him and all that He represents, we will surely go to perdition. The Lord will never force Himself on us. He will have no other recourse but to leave us to our own devices.
 
Micah 1:2-4 “Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple. For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, [and] as the waters [that are] poured down a steep place.”

 
The Lord is most distressed about all the sin and darkness that are threatening His people. He watches us from His holy habitation and He will sovereignly move to correct the situation. He is preparing to visit His anger, wrath and indignation on the entire earth. Our God will purge it with fire and destroy all wickedness and evil. Soon there will be nowhere to run and no place to hide.
 
Men’s hearts will fail them for fear of what is coming. The Lord will display His awesome power for all eyes to see. The mountains will melt like wax as the entire firmament is burned to cleanse it of all its defilement. There will be nothing left to contaminate either God or man. Christ will right all wrongs and settle all scores in the government of God that is coming on this earth.
 
We must decide now where we will spend all of eternity. We can be made righteous by the Blood of Christ and inherit His everlasting Kingdom or be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire, where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth forever more. The choice is ours and ours alone. No one can make it for us. We will all stand before almighty God and give a full accounting.
 
Many of us will be found righteous and obedient, and the Lord will gather us to Himself as His beloved children. He will meet all of our needs in abundance and protect us from all harm. Others will be found lacking, but there will be no second chances given to men or angels. Jesus Christ alone will determine who is entitled to blessings in His Kingdom and who deserves punishment.
 
1Thessalonians 5:2-4 “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.”

 
The Day of the Lord will come suddenly like a thief in the night. We must sharpen our spiritual senses, so that we can see and hear what is occurring. Soon it will be too late for any of us to change our fate. We will have to be fully prepared for the Lord when He appears. He is returning for a people who are all righteous, loving and obedient, and He will not lower His perfect standards for any of us.
 
Jesus Christ will destroy all that is wicked and evil in the wrath of His coming. Those who are stubborn and rebellious will be severely judged and condemned to a never ending punishment in the unquenchable lake of fire. Christ will cast Satan and all of his minions into the bottomless pit, so that they can no longer accuse or oppress His followers. There will be no vile thing left on the face of the earth.
 
The Kingdom of God is reserved only for those who walk uprightly before the Lord. He cannot abide evil in His holy presence, and only the redeemed will dwell with Him in paradise on this earth. He will change these mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms and restore everything that has been taken from us. God will supply all our needs and make certain that we are healthy, happy and prosperous.

 
Waiting For Christ’s Return

Isaiah 35:3-5 “Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come [with] vengeance, [even] God [with] a recompence; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.”
 
While it may appear that God’s people will always be in turmoil and tribulation – combating the forces of evil that threaten to take control of this world – that is not the case. Our God will never leave us or forsake us. He has made provision for all of our needs, despite the devil’s best efforts to destroy us. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will soon return to this earth a second time to level all playing fields.
 
He will not come as a babe in the manger or the meek and mild Lamb of God this time. He will appear as the Captain of the Heavenly Hosts. He will have no tolerance for wickedness and rebellion. He will smite all the evildoers with His mighty right hand and destroy all demonic strongholds that get in His way. Jesus Christ has vengeance in His heart to defeat all the enemies of almighty God and His people.
 
The Lord will open blind eyes and unstop deaf ears. All flesh will soon know the truth and be held strictly accountable for their works. There will be no second chances given to men or angels. Christ will judge both the living and the dead to determine who has done God’s will and who has been disobedient. He will be tender and merciful to the meek and contrite, but relentless in punishment of the ungodly.
 
Mark 13:33-37 “Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. [For the Son of man is] as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”

 
Only the righteous will be spared God’s wrath. The Lord will preserve us blameless until the return of Jesus Christ if we watch and pray. We are to continue doing what the Lord asked of us as His followers. We should share the Gospel with power and conviction and rescue others from death and destruction, as we are destined to do. There are many souls that currently lie in the balance.
 
We should make salvation to eternal life available to every man, woman and child that we meet. Unless they repent of their sins and believe in Jesus Christ, they will perish. There is no way to the Father except through the Son. Almighty God will have no tolerance for those who are blind and deaf to the truth. He expects us all to heed His warnings and make the necessary adjustments.
 
Jesus Christ died to save all of mankind from their sins once and for all. All that we need do is believe in Him and be made the righteousness of God by faith. Everything changes then. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is transformed until it actually becomes holy. We walk in the newness of life, just as Jesus Himself once did, as we learn to overcome all evil with good.
 
Very soon now, our Lord and Savior will return to this world to set up His millennial rule and reign. He will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming. There will be nothing left to defile either God or man. Nothing evil will ever enter into His everlasting Kingdom. It will literally be a paradise on this earth for all those who are deemed worthy to enter into it.
 
Luke 21:25-8 “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.”

 
It is critical that we be able to read the signs of the time we are now approaching. All that must be shaken will soon be removed off the face of the earth. The Lord will sovereignly move to correct the imbalance of good vs. evil that currently exists. He will restore all things to what they were originally intended to be, and abolish all wickedness and rebellion in His righteous indignation.
 
We know that the Day of the Lord will bring tribulation to many who are lost in sin and darkness, but it will also consummate in a great victory for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He will destroy all evil in the wrath of His coming. He will complete our redemption in spirit, soul and body and gather all of the righteous and obedient to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God.
 
Christ is returning to this earth to judge all men – the living and the dead – to determine who will receive blessings and rewards, and who will be condemned to eternal punishment. He will not lower His standards for any of us. His evaluation of both men and angels will be fair and just, but also final and permanent. The faithful will receive eternal life, but the wicked will go to perdition.
 
Revelation 1:7-8 “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”

 
When Jesus Christ returns, all the powers of heaven and hell will be shaken to the core. The Bible tells us that He will come in the clouds and that every eye will see Him. There will be an earthquake of epic proportion when He touches down on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem. He is making a triumphant entry into this natural realm and all of the nations of the world will wail because of Him.
 
Our Lord and Savior will not ever permit sin and evil to take over this planet. He will abolish it in His wrath and indignation. The wicked will perish right before our very eyes. Jesus Christ will take vengeance on all of the enemies of His people. He will cast Satan and all his minions into the bottomless pit and banish all wrongdoers to the unquenchable lake of fire, so that they can do no more harm.
 
Christ is the beginning and the end. He always was and always will be almighty God Himself. He is coming back to right all wrongs and settle all scores. He will vindicate His followers before both men and angels. He will restore all that has been taken from us, and make certain that we have all of our needs met in abundance to the overflow. The Kingdom of God will be the answer to all our prayers.
 
Jesus Christ will change these mortal bodies that are susceptible to disease and death into new, glorious, resurrection forms like His very own. We will live forever in His awesome presence and enjoy all the blessings He has in store for us. There will be peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for all those who are righteous, loving and obedient to the Lord.

 
The Day Of The Lord

Zephaniah 3:8 “Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination [is] to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, [even] all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.”
 
Much has gone wrong in this world since the original creation, and almighty God wants to set matters straight. He has been operating through a people who are called by His name and warning all of mankind to take notice. He will soon act to take back this planet and all of its inhabitants for His eternal plan and purpose. He wants to bring heaven itself to this earth in the Kingdom of God.
 
But first, everything has to be purged and cleansed to line up with His perfect, impeccable standards. Nothing that defiles either God or man will be permitted to remain here. The Lord will devour all wickedness and evil with a consuming fire. He will settle all scores and take vengeance on all of His enemies. Only that which is pure and innocent will enter into His holy presence.
 
Our heavenly Father is a jealous God. He does not want anything to separate Him from His beloved children. Now that we are righteous by the Blood of Christ, He can actually come and dwell with us for all eternity in the Kingdom of God. It is His heartfelt desire to provide all our needs and protect us from all harm. We will never lack for any good thing; the Lord will make certain of that.
 
Joel 2:10-11“The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp [is] very great: for [he is] strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD [is] great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”

 
The Day of the Lord will be dark and foreboding to all those who have transgressed His will.  The sun and moon will be darkened, and the stars will withhold their light. There will be earthquakes and various other manifestations of His wrath. Men’s hearts will fail them for fear of what is coming. The saints of almighty God will join forces with Jesus Christ and all His heavenly hosts.
 
Very soon now, the army of the most high God will move to take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. This will be a time of reckoning such as never before. The Lord will take vengeance on all of His enemies and punish all those who are wicked and rebellious. He is a God of justice. His people will no longer be oppressed, exploited or trapped in bondage of any kind.
 
The entire planet will be reconfigured to line up with God’s perfect plan and purpose. It will be purged and cleansed of all contamination with holy fire. All of creation will be restored to its original beauty and balance, and man will be in dominion over it once again. The Lord will bring heaven itself to the earth realm with such awesome power and glory that no evil will remain.

Only those who are righteous will be spared His wrath. The Lord will gather us to Himself for all of eternity. He will come and dwell with us on His holy mountain and take interest in all the details of our lives. We will thrive in His awesome presence and enjoy ourselves as never before. Our God will meet all our needs and protect us from all harm, as any loving Father would do.
 
Malachi 4:1-3 “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do [this], saith the LORD of hosts.”

 
Many who have been first will be last when the Lord sovereignly moves to right all wrongs and level all playing fields. He abases the proud and arrogant and exalts the humble among us. Only the meek will inherit the earth. The Lord will tolerate no form of wickedness and evil in any of us. If we are not righteous and obedient, we will never enter into His holy presence.
 
The wicked will be no more. They will all be burned up as stubble in the unquenchable lake of fire. The Lord will cast Satan and all of his minions into the bottomless pit. Nothing will ever harm or defile His people ever again. No one will accuse us before our God any longer, nor try to steal our inheritance from us. The Kingdom of God is reserved for Jesus Christ and His saints.
 
The people of God will have everything that was stolen restored to us. The Lord will change these mortal bodies into new, glorious resurrection forms that never get sick and die. We will enjoy good health and vitality forever more. We will dwell in peaceful habitations in love and unity as brothers and sisters, to see our children and our children’s children for all generation to come.
 
Obadiah 1:15-17 “For the day of the LORD [is] near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head. For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, [so] shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been. But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.”

 
The Lord is about to gather all the nations of the world for a final curtain call. We will all reap what we have sown in the last judgment. Those who have been wicked and evil will go to perdition. The Lord will take vengeance on all those who are rebellious. The enemies of His people will no longer prevail. Our God has never ending punishment planned for every one of them.
 
The Lord has only good things in mind for all of His beloved children. He will actually come to this earth and personally bind up all of our wounds. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of the weak and innocent among us, no more pain and suffering of any kind. The Lord will make certain that we are totally vindicated before both men and angels for all of eternity.

We will dwell with our heavenly Father in a literal paradise on this earth in the Kingdom of God. He will take us back to our beginnings in the Garden of Eden. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom. We will worship our God in Spirit and in truth, and celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days with joy and gladness.
 
Those of us who have served the Lord and His people will be generously rewarded for all of our efforts. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and appoint us as kings and priests. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.
  

We Shall See God

Job 33:26 “He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.”
 
Almighty God never meant for man to be estranged from Him at any time. We were created in His very image and likeness to spend all of eternity in His presence. However, Adam’s rebellion in the Garden of Eden interrupted the Lord’s perfect plan for us and brought sin and death into the picture. Sin separates man from Him and subjects us to both physical and spiritual death.
 
Jesus is, and always was, God Himself. He laid down His deity and came to this earth as one of us, so that He could buy back our innocence in satisfaction of the terms of the law. He, who knew no sin, actually became sin for us, and then bore its penalty in His own flesh. He suffered and died an agonizing death, so we could be redeemed from all of our sins – past, present and future.
 
If we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, and we are baptized with water and the Holy Spirit, we will one day see our God face-to-face. Soon the Lord will gather all of the righteous to Himself forever more. Every man, woman and child who is born again will be able to enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God on this earth and inherit all of its many blessings.
 
We now have grace with God, His unmerited favor. He sees us as being righteous by faith, and there is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us. He will supply all of our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him. He will also make certain that we are protected from all harm. We will have safety and security, peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom.
 
Hebrews 9:28 “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

 
The Lord, Jesus Christ, came to this earth to save the entire human race and to defeat the works of the devil. He was our sacrificial substitute, the total atonement required for the sins of all of mankind. Jesus actually became sin for us and then bore its curse on the cross. Now, at the end of this age, He will appear once again, without sin, to complete our redemption in spirit, soul and body.
 
If we sanctify ourselves and walk as He did, we will see our Lord and Savior face-to-face and be gathered into His presence for all eternity. Jesus is returning as the King of kings to rule and reign in His everlasting Kingdom. Soon every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim Him “Lord of all creation.” Those of us who have been faithful and obedient will be joint-heirs to His eternal legacy.
 
Christ will share His very own honor and glory with all His followers. We will judge both men and angels, and He will appoint us to be kings and priests of God. We will have the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will teach others to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We will even rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world.

1John 3:2 “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.”

 
Very soon now, man and God will be reconciled for all time. There will no longer be a separation of any kind between us. If we have been redeemed to eternal life, we will actually dwell with the Lord, as He has always wanted. We will fellowship intimately with Him as His very own sons and daughters. Our God will meet all of our needs and protect us from all harm.
 
The Lord, Jesus Christ, will take vengeance on all our enemies and settle all scores on our behalf. He will restore all that we have lost over the years and vindicate all wrongs done to us. He will cast Satan and all his minions into the bottomless pit and banish all wrongdoers to the unquenchable lake of fire. There will be nothing evil that contaminates our lives ever again.
 
We will never lack for any good thing. We will have plenty to eat, beautiful homes and large, happy families. The Lord will change these mortal bodies that are susceptible to disease and death into new, glorious resurrection forms that never get sick and die. We will thrive in His presence all the days of our lives and see our offspring for all generations to come.
 
The Kingdom of God will be heaven on this earth. Every righteous man, woman and child will be able to enter into it. The government of almighty God and His justice system will prevail. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of anyone. We will have peace, order and stability in our lives, and all human beings will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
 
Matthew 5:8 “Blessed [are] the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”

 
The Lord is actually planning on coming to this earth in the near future to dwell with a people who are called by His holy name. If we are righteous by the Blood of Jesus, humble and contrite in heart, we will be with Him for all of eternity. We will fellowship intimately with Him as our heavenly Father and He will lavish us with His blessings, as He has always longed to do.
 
Jesus Christ will change our mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that never get sick and die. He will take vengeance on all our enemies, cast Satan into the bottomless pit and restore everything that has been stolen from us. No man or angel will be able to take our birthright. We will enjoy an eternal legacy for our righteousness and obedience in paradise on this earth.
 
There will never be a separation between God and man ever again. We will share all the personal details of our lives with the Lord, and He will take particular delight in His beloved children. He will boast of us to all creation and meet every need that we might ever have. We will dwell in peaceful habitations as brothers and sisters, and see our offspring for all generations to come.

 
Blessings For Those That See And Hear The Truth

John 5:25-26 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;”
 

When Jesus Christ returns to the earth to complete our redemption, He will appear in the clouds and every eye will see Him. He will call forth with a loud voice and raise all the dead back to life once again. We will all face judgment for our works in the flesh to determine whether or not we have been righteous and obedient to do all that the Lord expects of us.
 
We will finally know the whole truth. Nothing will be hidden any longer. We will see the end of all wickedness and evil and experience the pleasures of life in Christ’s Kingdom in this world. The Lord will meet all our needs and bind up all of our wounds. There will be no more pain and suffering, nor death and destruction anywhere on the face of this earth.
 
Wars, violence and conflict will finally disappear as all worldly kingdoms are absorbed into the Kingdom of God. Oppression and exploitation of the weak and innocent will no longer be named among us. Plagues and pestilences will be eradicated once and for all. Poverty and lack will be abolished, as we share all of the resources of this universe with one another.
 
Only godly principles of peace, order and stability will prevail in our lives. Men will dwell in love and unity as brothers and sisters. The Lord will protect us from all harm, and make certain that we have all that we require to be healthy, happy and prosperous. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and give Him all the praise, honor and gratitude He deserves.
 
Psalm 85:8-9 “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.”

 
Almighty God has made a permanent covenant of peace with His people. He will soon come to the earth and personally dwell with us for all of eternity. He has great plans for our lives – for good things and not for evil. He will avenge all wrongs done to us; abolish all wickedness in His wrath; and restore all that has been taken from us over the years. We will dwell in a literal paradise forever more.
 
The Kingdom of God will right all wrongs and settle all scores once and for all time. Many who were first will soon be last, and the last will be first. The Lord will make certain that every righteous man, woman and child in every nation of this world is gathered to Himself for peace, provision and protection. He will meet all our needs in abundance and lavish us with blessings beyond our imaginings.
 
All men will soon be righteous or be banished forever more. God’s laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will get along as brothers and sisters, and share all the vast resources of this universe with one another. The Lord, Jesus Christ, will rule and reign as our just King and our benevolent leader. He will share all of His honor and glory with those of us who have served Him and His people.
 
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.”

 
The Lord will set us on high above all the nations of the world if we are diligent to follow His direction. He will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters. He will even appoint us to be kings and priests to His people. We will teach all mankind to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters and enforce godly principles of fairness and justice in all our affairs.
 
If we are faithful and obedient to do all that the Lord asks of us, His blessings will soon overtake us. We will be the head and not the tail. Our enemies will all be destroyed before our eyes. We will be blessed coming in and going out. Everything that we touch will prosper and succeed. We will enjoy good health and longevity, and spend all eternity in the presence of almighty God.
 
The Kingdom of God will be heaven on this earth and we will receive all its many benefits. The Lord will vindicate us before both men and angels and restore all that we have lost over the years. We will have brand new resurrection bodies that are strong and energetic. We will build beautiful homes for our large families and enjoy our offspring for all the many generations to come.
 
Isaiah 32:1-3 “Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment. And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken.”

 
All those who have eyes to see and ears to hear will be blessed abundantly in the very near future. The Lord will reveal Himself to His people in a powerful way. He will return in the person of Jesus Christ to right all wrongs and settle all scores. He will gather all of the righteous to Himself in His everlasting Kingdom. There will be no more separation between God and man ever again.
 
Our Lord and Savior will consummate our redemption in spirit, soul and body. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and strip them of their power to hurt or oppress us. Satan and all of his minions will be cast into the bottomless pit, and all wrongdoers will be banished to the unquenchable lake of fire. There will be no more wickedness and evil remaining anywhere on the face of the earth.
 
Jesus Christ will be our righteous King and our generous benefactor. He will meet all of our needs even before we ask Him. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom such as we have never experienced before. The Lord will share His honor and glory with those who have served Him. We will be kings and priests who rule and reign with Him.
 
The Kingdom of almighty God will spread over the entire earth and last forever and ever. It will be our legacy for righteousness and obedience. No man or devil will be able to steal our birthright from us. All men, women and children will be righteous; God’s laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will see our Creator face-to-face and thrive in His awesome presence for all of eternity.
