For my sister, Linda – a woman of great faith – thank you for inspiring me in all that you do!

 

Preface

Psalm 119:61 “The bands of the wicked have robbed me: [but] I have not forgotten thy law.”

The people of God have suffered shame, scorn and derision from those in the world for many years. We have been taunted and ridiculed for our belief in God. Many have been persecuted and even martyred for the faith. We have been robbed and spoiled of our birthright from Satan, the very enemy of our souls. He has tormented and opposed us in every area of our lives.

Our finest hour is coming, as we approach the consummation of all things. The Lord will turn our captivity right before our very eyes, and give us honor and glory for our former shame. He will restore our fortunes, as we usher in His Kingdom for all of eternity. We will enjoy peace and prosperity, instead of conflict and lack. We will have blessings and rewards for our faithfulness, an eternal legacy that no man or devil can ever take from us.

But first we have an important job to do. We should walk as Christ Himself walked on the earth, doing good to all whom we meet. Our eternal destinies must be embraced in the days ahead. We will share our faith with men everywhere, so that they might come to a full knowledge of the truth. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead, as Christ did.

Mark 1:15 “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

The world would be wise to follow our lead and repent of all unrighteousness now. Men should turn to the truth and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior before it is too late. Only those who are baptized in water and the Holy Spirit will be saved and have eternal life. They must walk in love for God and for others, in order to enter into the Kingdom of God.

The days are drawing short and there will be a major shakeup all over the globe, as all men are judged to determine if they are righteous. We should sanctify ourselves of all fleshly desires and soul ambitions, and embrace the Gospel of the Kingdom in all its power. Only those who keep the commandments and do the will of the Father will spend all of eternity with Him.

Proverbs 22:23 “For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.”

Christ will soon destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in His coming wrath. He will take vengeance on all our enemies and punish all those who have injured His people. There will be no evil or defilement of any kind as we enter into God’s Kingdom. We will experience safety and security, freedom from all forms of oppression and exploitation. All men will learn to dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers.

Everyone will know the Lord, from the least to the greatest of us. We will no longer suffer shame and humiliation for our faith. We will see the fruits of our efforts and have peace and prosperity, joy and gladness. We will live long and strong, enjoying life to the fullest. The Lord will provide all our needs in abundance and bless us for all of eternity. The Kingdom of God will be a paradise for all who dwell there!

 

Introduction

2Samuel 22:28 “And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes [are] upon the haughty, [that] thou mayest bring [them] down.”

Believers have suffered miserably for their faith just as Christ did. We have been persecuted, ridiculed and hated by men and devils, yet we refuse to relinquish our relationship with our Creator. We know the truth; the Lord will not permit His people to be attacked endlessly. There will soon come a time when all men will be judged, and we must be found loyal and obedient to God.

Our future is at stake. We will have eternal rewards for our faithfulness and devotion. The Lord will rescue His people from all who assail them. He will gather the righteous into the blessings of His everlasting Kingdom when it is ushered in on the earth. While we have been temporarily afflicted for our faith, we will be permanently rewarded for our willingness to defend it at all costs.

The Lord will give us praise for our former shame, and restore all that’s been taken from us over the years. He will supply all our needs in abundance from the vast resources of the universe. He will avenge all wrongs that were done to us and fully compensate us for our loss. He will vindicate us before men and angels, and we will share in Jesus Christ’s very own honor and glory.

Deuteronomy 14:2 “For thou [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that [are] upon the earth.”

We are a chosen generation, a “peculiar people” the Bible calls us. We were created for just such a time as this. We have eternal destinies that will play out in the days ahead. We have a key role in the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. We are Christ’s end-times army that will take back total control and dominion over the entire earth and fight the good fight of faith.

We are the Body of Christ on the earth and we will be empowered to do great things in the days to come. We will work miraculous signs and wonders to attract men to the truth. We will preach the Gospel message and see many converted and baptized in our faith. We will help to abolish all evil off the face of the earth and destroy demonic strongholds, so that Christ can return to receive His Kingdom.

We will help to restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance. All plants and animals will be in perfect harmony and subject to man once again. We will restructure and reorganize world governments, so that they line up with Kingdom standards of fairness, justice and equality for all. We will prepare the hearts and minds of all mankind to meet their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

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

None of what we accomplish will be done in our own strength. The Lord will grant us divine power and authority to act in His stead. We will have the anointing of Jesus Christ Himself to do good to all men and usher in His Kingdom. We will be fully equipped to do all that is asked of us, and we will be totally successful in bringing heaven to the earth realm, as the Lord plans.

These are exciting times for the followers of Christ. We will walk exactly as He walked on the earth. Revival has broken out all over the planet, and the ground is ripe for the end-time harvest of souls to be reaped. The world stage has been set for a total spiritual revolution to take place. The Lord is shaking things up for the last time, so that what cannot be shaken remains intact.

2Peter 3:13 “Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”

There’s a new heaven and a new earth coming soon. All earthly kingdoms and governments will be absorbed into Christ’s eternal Kingdom and subject to His righteous rule. There will be peace and prosperity for all who dwell there. There will be no disease and death, no war or conflict. The Lord Himself will take up residence with us and be our God for all of eternity.

Our total restoration is assured in the very near future. We will be fully compensated for all that we have lost. We will have eternal rewards and blessings in the Kingdom of God that far outweigh any inconvenience or affliction that we have suffered for our faith. Our names will one day be a praise on the earth, and we will serve as kings and priests over all nations of the world.

The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and totally vindicate us. He will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. He will take an active role in our lives and fellowship intimately with us as our Father, as He has always desired. There will be no more separation between us. He will be our God and we will be His people who are called by His name.

 

Chapter 1 – Afflicted For Our Faith

 

Matthew 5:11-12 “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”

The followers of Jesus Christ have never been popular with the world. They have always had an uphill battle to fight for their faith. They have suffered from scorn and derision, oppression and persecution, anger and hatred for thousands of years, ever since Christ originally walked on the earth. The Gospel of peace has been solidly rejected and turned into a mockery by the wicked.

This is not a surprise, since Christ was the object of ridicule and aversion Himself. As His disciples, we have come to expect much the same treatment that He received. We take up the cross where His suffering left off. Despite what others may think of us, we continue to spread our faith and deal with opposition, in hopes of bringing all mankind to a full knowledge of the truth.

Evil threatens to overcome us in these last days. God’s people are being taunted and afflicted for our beliefs, but we remain loyal and devoted to Him regardless of the resistance we incur. Our faith is strong and we are willing to fight for it, so that our God will be glorified in us. We will rise up in the divine power that is granted to us, and usher in the Kingdom of God, as we should.

We rejoice in our current suffering, knowing that it will culminate in total victory for us in the very near future. We have eternal callings and divine destinies that must be fulfilled despite what we are compelled to endure. The Lord will soon vindicate us before men and angels. We will have a just reward for our efforts and be glorified with Jesus Christ Himself for all eternity.

Isaiah 60:2 “For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”

The world cannot continue on its present course. Death and destruction loom all around us. We are headed for total disaster unless we seek God and His way of doing things rather than our own. We have abdicated our authority and dominion on the earth. Satan is wreaking havoc on us and we do little, if anything, to deter his efforts. We must protect ourselves and rescue others.

There is a full number of souls that must be brought into the Kingdom of God before it can be ushered in to the earth realm. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be spared damnation and delivered to eternal life. We have to contend for our faith, so that all men have an opportunity to choose life over death, and receive blessings rather than punishment.

If we fail to respond to our calling, valuable work will remain undone. We must fully cooperate with the Lord’s plans for us, so that no one perishes for lack of knowledge. We must preach the Gospel to all the nations of the world, so that men, women and children everywhere can be converted and baptized. We must prepare the hearts of all men to receive Christ as their King.

The glory of the Lord will shine brightly on us in the days to come. We will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God and change the fate of all mankind. There will be no more war, greed, conflict and violence. God’s people will bring peace and order to the earth, as we are destined to do. We will usher in the Kingdom of God in power and glory for all the world to see.

Romans 8:35-37 “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.”

Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, which strengthens us to do all things in His name. We are the sons of God and we will stop at nothing to honor and serve Him. We may experience distress and opposition for our faith, but we will endure until the end. We will walk as Christ Himself walked on the earth and usher in the Kingdom of God, as the Lord desires.

We have divine destinies. No man can come to the Father except by His Son, Jesus Christ. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, so that all men have an opportunity to be saved. The Lord will empower us to bring in the full end-time harvest of souls that He requires. We will convert many to the faith and baptize them, as we fulfill His eternal redemption plan.

Although we may struggle in our efforts to win the unsaved to the Lord, as He desires, we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ. We are the very sons and daughters of almighty God, created for such a time and purpose as this. We will be totally successful in all that we do. The Lord Himself will anoint us to take back the entire earth and overcome all evil with good.

We may have to endure tests, trials and tribulation, suffer in sanctification and be persistent despite persecution, but it will not be in vain. We will have a just recompense for all of our efforts and be generously rewarded in the days to come. Very soon now, heaven itself will come into the earth realm and Christ will bring a quick end to everything that is evil or defiling.

Psalm 106:10 “And he saved them from the hand of him that hated [them], and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.”

The Kingdom of God will level all playing fields when it is ushered in to the earth. The people of God will not be scorned for all time. We will have a release from persecution one day in the very near future, and dwell in the very presence of almighty God Himself.

The Lord will take up our cause and fully vindicate us. He has promised us full restoration for all of our trouble. He will never leave or forsake us; He will protect His people from all harm and compensate us for all we have lost or had stolen from us by our enemies.

We will receive a just recompense for all of our efforts. The Lord will make our names a praise on the earth. He will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. We will share in Christ’s honor and glory and rule and reign with Him forever.

There will no longer be oppression or exploitation of men on the earth. We will make certain that the Kingdom principles of righteousness, fairness, justice and equality are enforced. There will be nothing that defiles God or man in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

All men will be free to worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth. We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days with joy and gladness in our hearts. The Lord will be the center of our attention instead of an after-thought, and He will be our God for all of eternity.

We will experience endless peace and unlimited prosperity in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will supply all of our needs in abundance from all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. We will be healthy and strong, and live forever in unity as brothers.

Nothing will ever contaminate the peace, order and stability of Kingdom life. Christ will rule with a rod of iron to make certain that nothing defiles or harms His people ever again. We will have only safety and security, joy and freedom in His presence forever more.

Hated Without Cause

Psalm 94:5 “They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.”

Many believers have suffered during so called “holy wars.” They have lost their homes, property and loved ones in the name of religion, yet they never gave up on their God. Others have been publicly humiliated, tortured and even martyred for their faith. Some have been imprisoned or suffered persecution for something as simple as having their own Bibles. It is a violation of social mores and often illegal to worship the one true God in many nations of the world.

Some men have had to leave their homelands to go in search of a place where they can have freedom of religion and peace in their lives. Others have been oppressed by false teachers who have tempted them to abdicate their fundamental beliefs altogether. Many have endured tribulation from family and friends, while still others have to meet secretly to read the Word of God and practice their faith. Believers have been hated and tormented by both men and devils, but we will prevail.

The wicked will not rule the world for all time. There is a day of reckoning coming in the very near future. Christ will soon return to destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness. He will eradicate all evil and oppression off the face of the earth. The Kingdom of God will be given to the saints of God, who walk in His ways and are faithful to do His will. They will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, and rule and reign with Him over all races, tongues and nations.

Matthew 10:22 “And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.”

The followers of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, have been hated without cause, defamed, maligned and ostracized. We have been falsely accused and tormented for following the truth. We have been scorned, mocked and ridiculed; yet we remained loyal. While we may be unpopular with the world, we are chosen of God and there will come a time in the very near future that He will avenge all wrongs done to His people. In the mean time, we endure evil for doing good as we wait for our ultimate redemption.

We have eternal destinies to fulfill as the sons and daughters of God. We have to take back our dominion over all matters on the earth and defeat the devil for all time. We must preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with power and conviction, so that all men, women and children have an opportunity to be saved. We cannot think about our own needs at this critical juncture. The entire earth is in darkness and deception. The Lord is counting on us to show others the truth, so that they can be set free as we are.

The Lord sees all the oppression that we have suffered and He will not tolerate it forever. He cannot and will not overlook the wickedness that is perpetrated on His people by men or by devils. He will turn our captivity one day very soon and take vengeance on all of our enemies. Christ will soon return to destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in His coming wrath. He will give us praise and glory for our former shame, and restore all that has been taken from us because of our loyalty and devotion to our faith.

Psalm 55:1-3 “Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication. Attend unto me and hear me: I mourn in my complaint and I make a noise; Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.”

There is a demonic assignment against all men and women of faith in these last days. The devil is furious because His power and authority have been challenged and we are resisting his tactics. He is determined to totally wipe us out and destroy the earth. He causes chaos and confusion, conflict and violence, pain and suffering for all those who love and trust in God. We must realize that the plots and schemes that are being thrust at us are diabolical in origin and meant to utterly annihilate us because of who we are in Christ.

So too, men in the world steadily resist us and continue in their ignorance to revile and oppress us. We are hated without cause and subject to scorn and derision in all of our efforts to share our faith with them. We have been commanded to love them despite their poor treatment of us, yet they make it very difficult for us to continue to be righteous and keep all the commandments. The wicked lie in wait to trap and tempt us. If we are unaware of their ploys, they will cause us to sin and reject God and His way of doing things.

We are assailed by devils and by men if we are genuine believers. We are called on to endure persecution, ridicule and derision. We have trials, tests and tribulation at every turn and we suffer in sanctification. Yet we are not without hope. The Lord sees all of our struggles and He is ever ready to assist us if we call on His name. There is no reason why we should be tormented for our faith. We can rise up in the divine power and authority that has been granted to us and totally overcome the world, our flesh and the devil.

A Real Enemy

1 Peter 5:8-9 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”

Satan, the very enemy of our souls, is the driving force behind all of our struggles to serve God and worship Him as we desire. His time is short and he is only escalating his attacks as the end of this dispensation approaches. He wants to blind men to the truth and keep them in darkness. His goal is to separate us from God and to hinder the coming of His Kingdom to the earth. While he will not be successful, he is doing all that he can to impede its progress.

The enemy causes war and violence all over the planet. He is behind all natural disasters and the decadence in nature. He motivates men to be greedy and selfish, so that we estrange ourselves from one another and our God. He tells us that there is no life but the present one, so that we become shallow and worldly. He seduces us into worshipping idols and coveting material things. He wants to play us out of position, so that we believe his lies and suffer from eternal damnation.

He brings chaos and confusion to our lives. He causes strife and division among us as a body of believers. He attacks our minds, our bodies, our relationships and our finances. He tempts us to sin and doubt our faith, and if it were possible, to totally abandon it. His attacks are intense, but we know the truth. He is already a defeated foe and we have the power to stop him. We must counter his oppression with spiritual warfare of our own, and drive him out of our lives altogether.

John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.”

The devil is a real enemy and his mission is to steal, kill and destroy all that is pure, good and righteous. He hates the human race because the Lord created us in His very own image and likeness, and desires that we fellowship with Him intimately for all of eternity. The Lord has a wonderful redemption plan in mind for His people, and the devil has no part in it. He is extremely jealous of our relationship with God. Jesus Christ will soon banish him to the bottomless pit, so that he can no longer oppress mankind or steal anything that belongs to us.

Jesus came so that we might have life in abundance to the overflow. He specifically died and rose again from the dead, so that we would have eternal life. He spoiled all principalities and powers, so that mankind could take dominion over all matters on the earth once again. He provided us with a divine exchange of sin for pardon, contention for peace and oppression for freedom. Christ’s victory over sin, death and the grave assures us that we are now in right standing with God, and we have rights and privileges that no man or devil can ever take from us.

We are sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. Our relationship with Him has been restored for all time. When the Lord sees us, He sees Jesus in all of His righteousness and there is no good thing that He will withhold from His people. He has seated us with Christ in heavenly places at His very own right hand. We can go directly to the throne of God with all of our needs and concerns and know that they will be addressed. Our lives must be viewed from a heavenly vantage point now. We are more than conquerors in all that we think, say and do.

James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

We have divine destinies that must be fulfilled and we have no time for satanic interference. We must submit ourselves to God and walk in total love and righteousness, as we have been taught to do. We will then be protected from all harm and empowered from on high. We should appropriate the strength of Christ Himself and take a stand against all demonic strongholds. We have been given power and authority over all forms of evil. We must rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing and fulfill the Lord’s perfect will for our lives. Nothing will be impossible to us if we fully consecrate ourselves to God.

No one should acquiesce to the devil’s plans; he is an insidious liar and a thief. He wants to destroy all of mankind once and for all and wreak havoc on the earth. He is vehemently opposed to everything that God cherishes. His real battle is with the Lord, and he knows that he can annoy God if he comes at us. If we resist him, he will flee far from us. We can plead the Blood of Jesus and do spiritual warfare against him. We will triumph over him, so that nothing interferes with heaven coming to the earth realm. We will spoil Satan just as Christ did on Calvary and take back our dominion over the entire world.

We are the head and not the tail. As believers, we are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the very right hand of God Himself. That means that the enemy is beneath our feet. If we bind him and cancel all of his demonic assignments against us, we will prevail. We are looking down on him from our position in the throne room of God, and he is already a defeated foe. We have to exercise our Blood bought power and authority and drive him off the face of the earth, as the Lord has planned for us. He will have to cease and desist his demonic activities and bow to the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, for all eternity.

Retribution

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

Jesus was human in every way, but He was able to overcome all evil with His perfect obedience to the Father. With His victory over sin, death and the grave, Christ defeated the devil and made an open show of him for all the universe to see. Satan has been legally stripped of his ability to oppress and destroy. The enemy can no longer preside over matters on the earth, as he has tried to do since the fall of Adam. Christ returned power and authority back to mankind where it belongs.

He vanquished Satan for all time, so that we could take back dominion in this world as it was intended from the creation. The devil is now a defeated foe. We have inherited all the promises of righteousness in Christ, and we are joint-heirs with Him to the Kingdom of God and all of its many blessings. As believers, we have faith and confidence that our prayers are always heard. The Lord supplies all our needs in abundance and desires a close, intimate relationship with us.

Our sins have been blotted out forever with Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf. We are now dead to sin and risen to a new life in the Spirit. We are new creatures in Christ and we have rights and privileges. Satan can no longer reign over us in any way. As long as we remain sin free and walk in righteousness and love, as we have been taught, we are protected from all evil. We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil and usher in the Kingdom of God, as we are intended to do.

Matthew 18:18 “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

The Lord will protect us against all enemy attacks, but He also expects us to control Satan and all of his minions. We should rebuke and bind them with words of faith and cast them out of all our affairs. We can then loose blessings into our lives that line up with the Word of God and His will for us. We have power and authority that we must exercise; there is never a reason to be oppressed. We have been given full dominion over everything in the earth, and we must learn to practice that.

Very soon now, Jesus Christ will return to set up His everlasting Kingdom on the earth. We should be found doing His work, as He has commissioned us to do. We have to preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again. We should set mankind free from bondage of all kinds. We will reform world governments and their economies, so that peace and order are established on the earth. We will re-create all of nature to its original beauty and balance.

With our words of faith that line up with the Word and will of God, we will tear down demonic strongholds and overcome all evil with good in the days to come. The entire world will be prepared for the return of our Lord and Savior. He will finish the job and destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming. There will be nothing that defiles God or man that ever enters into the Kingdom of God. Christ will rule with a rod of iron to make certain everything evil is banished.

Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is] of me, saith the LORD.”

No demonic plot or scheme that is contrived to injure us in any way will prosper and be successful. We should expose all the enemy’s efforts to oppress us that interfere with our sharing the truth and worshipping God. We can always ask the Lord for His protection and He will send legions of angels to avenge us. So too, we have been given full dominion over the devil ourselves, and we can drive him out of our lives with words of faith and spiritual warfare that is directed against him. Satan is already a defeated foe and we should exercise our total authority over him.

If our righteousness is above and beyond reproach, we are able to refute every negative word that is spoken against us by men or by devils. We do not have to accept any word curses in our lives or tolerate any defamation that is leveled against us for our faith. We can use the Word of God itself to combat all negativity and disclose all lies that are spoken about us. It is sharper than any two-edged sword and it will stop our adversaries in their tracks. We can overcome all evil that is directed towards us and silence our opponents simply by standing on God’s Word.

2Thessalonians 1:4-6 “So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: Seeing [it is] a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;”

We need patience and faith to suffer the persecution that we are called on to endure. Men malign us; devils oppress us and we take up the sufferings of Christ Himself in our daily lives. We should defend ourselves against attackers by the Blood and in the name of Jesus.

If they refuse to hear us and continue in afflicting us, the Lord Himself will contend with them. It is a fearful thing to fall under the mighty hand of God, but it is just retribution for those who criticize us in any way or interfere with the work the Lord assigns us to do.

Our God will not tolerate mistreatment of His people by anyone. He will take vengeance on all our enemies and smite all those who contend with us. He is a just God, and He will not permit His people to be wrongfully judged for their righteousness and devotion.

We have eternal destinies, and the Lord will not allow anyone or anything to touch His anointed ones. He will always back us up with His power and might. He will protect us in all our ways and insulate us from the persecution of men and the oppression of the enemy.

So too, we have been given all power and authority to defeat the devil for ourselves. Christ restored that to us with His victory over sin, death and the grave. We should fight the good fight of faith and watch the enemy flee from us, as we usher in the Kingdom of God.

Restitution

Proverbs 6:30-31 “Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But [if] he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.”

When anything is stolen from us, the Bible says the offender must pay us back seven-fold for our loss. That means that it is time for us to demand our rights from Satan, the enemy of our souls, and make spiritual claims for all that has been taken from us. He has robbed and pillaged God’s people for years, and we have the right and the responsibility to expect restitution for our loss.

We should boldly announce our intentions and lay claim to all that is due us. The Lord will back us up, because it is specified in His Word. We should say something like “Devil, you can no longer steal from me. I command you to cease and desist all oppression in the name of Jesus Christ. I lay claim to all that you have taken from me, and demand it returned seven-fold, as it is written.”

The enemy will have to restore whatever he has stolen from us, whether it be property, our reputation or our loved ones. Restitution is a spiritual law, and even the devil has to do things legally. The Lord Himself will assist us in our efforts to be recompensed for our loss. We should pray and ask Him to send legions of ministering angels to gather in what we have lost or had stolen from us.

Isaiah 42:22 “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.”

Believers have been robbed and spoiled over the years. We have lost freedom, property, relationships and dignity because of our faith, but we are not without hope. The Lord has seen all the oppression of His people and He will not permit it to continue indefinitely. Very soon now, the Kingdom of God will manifest on the earth and all evil will finally be abolished.

We will no longer have to endure persecution and exploitation of any kind. The Lord, Jesus Christ, will soon return to settle all scores. He will defend those who are called by His name and restore everything that has been taken from us. There will be safety and security in His Kingdom. Nothing and no one that defiles us will ever cause us harm or loss ever again.

Eternal blessings, praise, honor and glory will be our portion. We will have full restitution and a just recompense for our efforts. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and boast of us to all creation. We will be appointed kings and priests of God and have the heathen for our inheritance. Those of us who have served God will rule and reign with Christ.

Acts 3:20-21 “And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.”

There is never a permanent loss in the lives of God’s people. The Lord will always restore what has been wrongfully taken from us. We will not be ashamed for our faith. If we are patient and endure the tests and trials that confront us, our God will show Himself strong on our behalf. He will not permit us to suffer endlessly; He will sovereignly move to protect and provide for us according to His promises.

Christ is returning to destroy all evil off the face of the earth for all of eternity. He will bind Satan in the bottomless pit and restore everything that has been stolen from us. Instead of poverty and lack, we will have total prosperity. Instead of shame and scorn, we will receive praise, honor and glory. There will come a time in the very near future when all playing fields will be leveled once and for all.

The Lord will usher us into His Kingdom and provide all of our needs abundantly. We will no longer remember our former pain and suffering. The Lord will blot all that from our memory. He will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters, and appoint us as kings and priests to His people. We will share in Christ’s very own inheritance and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world.

Contention For Our Faith

1Timothy 4:1-2 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”

We have suffered a great deal in protecting our spirits from contamination. Many false religions have sprung up that tempt us to depart from the one true faith. Man-made traditions, that excuse sin and glorify men rather than God, have separated and divided us. They lead the ignorant into spiritual confusion and erode our unity as a body of believers.

These false gospels serve as agents of the enemy to beguile and destroy God’s people. They try to rob us of our saving faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement on our behalf. They challenge our birthright and interrupt our relationship with God. They undermine our intentions to remain righteous and make a mockery out of the true Gospel message.

Our righteousness is determined by our faith in Jesus Christ and by that alone. We have the responsibility to adhere to sound doctrine and make certain that everything we hear lines up with the written Word of God. We should earnestly contend for our faith, and cultivate a closer relationship with the Lord. He will always lead and guide us into all truth.

Matthew 15: 8-9 “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.”

The Lord wants us released from all forms of dead Babylonian religion that hold us in bondage and confusion of any kind. He views perversion of the true Gospel message as heresy, and He will not be placated until all efforts to lead His people astray are totally abolished. No anti-Christ theories that entice men and slander the name of His Son will be tolerated.

Man-made traditions that make a mockery out of the truth will be revealed and refuted as lies. False prophets and errant teachers will ultimately be exposed and punished. Ours is a jealous God, and He will not permit His people to be contaminated by a spirit of false religion. However, we have a sacred responsibility to seek sound teaching that lines up with the Word of God.

We cannot entertain social gospels or dabble in demonic doctrines that dilute the Word of God in any way. We are responsible to seek the truth and walk in the light of it at all times. We have been bought with a dear price – the very Blood of Jesus Christ Himself. We should contend for our faith at all costs and share it with all of mankind, as the Lord leads and directs us.

Jude 1:3 “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”

The Lord is not interested in religion; He desires intimate relationship with His people. He alone can see the inner man of the heart and judge righteousness accordingly. He is not impressed with pretended piety or ceremonialism of any kind. He insists that we walk in love and keep all of His commandments. In return, He will abundantly supply all of our needs.

Our God wants us operating in full power and authority as His sons and daughters. We cannot compromise ourselves in any way by entertaining false teaching. We have eternal destinies that require us to know the truth and walk it out in our daily lives. We should combat all religious lies by sharing the authentic Gospel of Jesus Christ with all men, as we are called to do.

We have a responsibility to seek the truth at all times. Anything that does not line up with the Word of God should always be avoided. We cannot twist the Scriptures to suit our own end. We must maintain their integrity. So too, we should not add to or subtract from the Word when we teach it to others. It has the power to save men from their sins just as it is written.

If we preach Christ crucified and resurrected in all of His glory, we give men the opportunity to believe and be saved to eternal life. He died for the express benefit of all of us; no one is too incorrigible that the Blood of Christ cannot save him. We must confess Christ as Lord and Savior and be baptized with water and the Holy Spirit to be restored to right standing with God.

It is critical that we fight the good fight of faith and assert ourselves when false teachers bring heresies in that contaminate the truth and cause strife and division among us. We should expose their methods and motives and destroy all their efforts with evangelization of the true Gospel message. All men can discern the truth through the intervention of the Holy Spirit.

Deliverance From Evil

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

There are many people who have a form of religion with no power in it. They lead defeated lives and are subject to continuous demonic oppression for lack of knowledge. They may suffer poverty and lack, illness and even premature death as a result of beliefs that are non-scriptural. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is powerful for removing burdens and destroying yokes of all types.

Christ came to save us from our sins and to give us life in abundance to the overflow. He bore our infirmities and carried our diseases, and by His stripes we were healed two thousand years ago, once and for all time. We should never succumb to fear, doubt and unbelief. We can have faith that the Lord will deliver us from all evil and supply all our needs, as He promises.

Our Savior will soon return to us and settle all scores. He will take vengeance on all our enemies and restore everything that has been illegally taken from us. He will punish false teachers and all those who oppress and exploit others. He will leave no stone unturned; Jesus Christ is zealous for the plight of His people and He will usher us into His Kingdom with power and glory.

1Timothy 4:10 “For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.”

In the interim, we must take a strong stand and fight the good fight of faith at all times. We should share the truth with others, as the Lord leads us, and fulfill our divine destinies. We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself and He will endue us with divine power and authority to evangelize the entire earth, so that all men can be set free to enjoy true Christian liberty as we do.

We must do everything possible to protect the integrity of our faith. We have been given discernment through the power of the Holy Spirit of God and we can readily detect all heresies. We should expose the sly and cunning tactics of the proponents of these lies, and actively work to spread the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to all men, so that they might know the truth.

It is not the Lord’s will that any man should perish for lack of knowledge. The uncompromised Gospel must be preached to men all over the world, so that the full end-time harvest of souls can be brought in to the Kingdom of God. The Lord will protect us from all evil influence, and keep us in perfect peace until we enter into the safety and security of His very presence for all eternity.

Psalm 54:3-5 “For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.”

The Lord Himself will deliver us from all forms of false religion that hold men in bondage and lead to their eternal damnation. Christ will judge the living and the dead, the righteous and the unrighteous, one day very soon. He will destroy all those who have oppressed and exploited His people with anti-Christ doctrines. They will have their punishment in the lake of fire, as they deserve.

False teachers will be strictly judged and severely punished since they have led so many into defilement. They will not be permitted to contaminate God’s people any longer. He will remove all enemies in the pulpit and appoint shepherds that truly care for His people. They will preach the Gospel message with conviction and manifestations of divine power that prove God’s love for us.

The Body of Christ will actively work to tear down all demonic strongholds that have held men in bondage to lies. Miraculous signs and wonders will accompany our message, so that men will eventually know the truth. No mind-blinding spirits will destroy those who are intended for God’s Kingdom. We will contend for the Word of God everywhere, so that many are saved and baptized in our faith.

God will turn the hearts of men back to Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. He will unleash His power and glory all over the earth as a mighty demonstration that will attract them. We will all know the truth that sets us free, from the least to the greatest of us. It is not the Lord’s will that any man should perish for lack of knowledge. He desires that we all be delivered to the blessings of eternal life.

Oppression By Men

Psalm 69:19 “Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries [are] all before thee.”

When we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we made the best decision of our lives. However, we also incurred criticism from friends and family who are of the world. They cannot understand spiritual matters themselves, because they are carnally minded. Unfortunately, they scorn and ridicule those who are earnestly seeking the Lord and are often cruel and malicious.

They make fun of our faith, question our sincerity and call us fanatics. They cannot understand why we no longer do the worldly things that we once did. They mock us in our quest for truth and accuse us of being hypocrites. They think we are deluded, and avoid us when we share our heart-felt beliefs with them. We often find ourselves isolated and lonely in our newfound faith.

But we are never really alone in our tests, trials and tribulation. The Lord is always with us and will defend our cause. He will never leave us or forsake us in our efforts to maintain righteousness. He will exalt us one day very soon, so that no one will dare to ridicule or condemn us ever again. We will be honored and glorified as the very sons and daughters of almighty God Himself.

Proverbs 11:18 “The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness [shall be] a sure reward.”

The wicked come against all our efforts to be righteous. They try to trip us up in our faith and tempt us to sin. We must stand fast in our intentions to serve the Lord. We should walk in the truth and purposely choose to love them despite how they treat us. All our opponents will finally be silenced when Jesus Christ judges the righteous and the unrighteous, the believer and the unbeliever.

All men will soon be compelled to acknowledge our Lord and Savior and receive their eternal rewards or punishments. God is not mocked. He knows who is sincere in following the truth. He will not permit His people to be ashamed for their faith. He will reward those who diligently seek Him and share their beliefs with others. Everyone will eventually be exposed to the Gospel message.

The Lord has a perfect plan in place for worldwide evangelization. It is His deepest desire that all of mankind will come to know His love for them, and be redeemed according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the days ahead, we will share our faith and persuade many to be converted and baptized. Men, women and children in every nation of the world will be born again to eternal life.

We will not have to endure oppression, scorn and derision forever. If we do not buckle under the pressure, we will enjoy a sure reward for all of our efforts. The Lord Himself will bless us for our righteousness and provide all of our needs according to His riches in glory. He will requite all the evil that has been done to us, and hold our persecutors personally accountable for their wicked actions.

James 5:20 “Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”

Our fellowship with our family and friends will be restored one day in the very near future. All men will be astonished at how the Lord uses us in His eternal redemption plan. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom and draw many to the truth. Our loved ones will take special notice when we heal the sick, deliver captives free of enemy oppression and even raise the dead.

As we prepare to enter the Kingdom of God when it comes to the earth, many who are reluctant to confess Jesus as their Lord and Savior will be attracted to the Gospel message. They will actually be impressed by our faith and drawn by our performance of miraculous signs and wonders in the name of the Lord. This will be the irrefutable proof that they need to ultimately be converted.

While it would be better if they acknowledged the Lord out of faith alone, any way that men come to the truth is acceptable. If they require evidence of God’s power and glory, they certainly will receive that in the days ahead. The Lord will show Himself strong all over the face of the earth, so that all men have an opportunity to believe in Him and be saved from their sins for all time.

We are privileged to be God’s partners in ushering in the Kingdom of God. Our efforts will be fruitful, as we overcome evil with good and bring in the full end-time harvest of souls. We will be generously rewarded for our efforts and share in Christ’s very own honor and glory one day soon. We will have a just recompense for all our efforts and our names will be a praise on the earth.

2John 1:8 “Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.”

We will have a reward for our righteousness and obedient service to the Lord if we are patient. If we persist in our faith and love others as we are called to do despite how they might treat us, we will see positive results for our efforts. We are even promised a household salvation, and can be certain that many of our family and friends will one day be saved in a full knowledge of the truth.

While we may indeed experience unjust treatment from those closest to us, the Lord Himself defends our cause. If we pray and ask Him to intervene in our affairs, we can have hope and confidence that He will respond. He can always touch the hearts and minds of our loved ones and attract them to Himself, just as He did with us before we were saved and born again in Christ.

The Lord always defends His people and glorifies us in the midst of persecution. Any oppression from others that we experience is only temporary and should be ignored if at all possible. We must purposely forgive our adversaries. We will have honor and praise for our former shame and derision. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and we will be leaders of men in His Kingdom.

Relationship Challenges

2Corinthians 6:14 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”

Although it is painful to suffer rejection at the hands of those who are closest to us, what we need more than ever is a closer relationship with God. He will always minister to our needs and arrange our contacts, so that we have fellowship with those who are of like precious faith. He will lead us and guide us into all truth and direct our paths so that we can grow in faith.

Our church family often becomes closer to us than our own friends and relatives. They accept us with love and affection and encourage us in our search for the truth. They pray and intercede on our behalf, until we are strong in the Lord and the power of His might. They become our new friends and family, and stick even closer to us than a natural brother or sister would.

There is much at stake in our lives. We cannot be unequally yoked in intimate fellowship with unbelievers or we will suffer at their hands. They will tempt us to fall back into our old sinful ways and threaten our salvation. We should seek the companionship of those who are like-minded and strengthen one another in our faith, especially as the day of the Lord approaches.

Ephesians 4:3 “Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

There is strength in numbers and it is vital that we walk in love and unity with all fellow believers. We are all called to be members of the Body of Christ and we have eternal destinies to fulfill in the days to come. We cannot be doing our own thing; we desperately need one another. Our overall success will be dependent upon how cooperative we are with one another.

Strife and division should not even be named among us. Envy and pride are forbidden in God’s people. We cannot have haughty, arrogant spirits and hope to please God or get along with others. We are to be loving and kind, and at peace with all men wherever possible. It will be critical that we obey the law of love and operate in it at all times in the days to come.

We must walk in the unity of our faith and find the ties that bind us together. There will be no time for doctrinal disputes or denominational competition in the days ahead. The Lord is calling out the Body of Christ from all religious affiliations. They will be true, sincere believers who are willing and obedient to serve Him and His people in ushering in the Kingdom of God.

The Lord will be able to use anyone – man, woman or child – that is consecrated and dedicated to His eternal purpose. As long as we are righteous and walking in love, as we ought to be, we are qualified for His service. If we are willing and obedient, we will do great things in the days ahead and set all of mankind free to greet Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

1John 1:7 “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.”

Christ is our Head and the Commander-in-Chief of His end-times army. None of us can afford to be insubordinate to His guidance and direction. We have to walk in love and unity or we will be disqualified. It is critical that we move as one Body with singularity of purpose. We will have to relinquish all selfish soul ambitions and adopt the Lord’s eternal plan as our very own.

He desires that all men hear the truth and embrace the Gospel message, so that they can be set free to receive eternal life and all of its many blessings. It is not His will that anyone perishes for lack of knowledge. We must share our faith with others and persuade them to accept Christ as their Redeemer. Salvation through Him will prevent their eternal punishment.

The Blood of Christ is the only thing that cleanses us of all sin. Because of Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf, we now have the gift of eternal life. However, we cannot ever take our righteousness for granted. We must walk in love at all times and obey everything that the Lord asks of us. He wants us to share our faith with others, baptize and lead them into the everlasting Kingdom of God.

Hebrews 12:14 “Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:”

It is critical that we be at peace with all men, particularly those of like precious faith. We are responsible for the light that we have and we cannot compromise our love walk in any way. We must be humble servants of others and be above offense, no matter how they treat us. We should forgive and forget all wrongs done to us and pray for those who despitefully use us.

Although we may struggle in our relationships, it is indeed possible for us to overcome our differences and pursue love and unity, as we should. We need to seek our commonality of interest. There is vital work that must be done in the days ahead and we should be unified in our goals to take back the earth and everything in it, so that Christ is able to return to us. It is imperative that we move as one.

If we walk in love and humbly serve the Lord and His people, as we are ordained to do, we will inherit the Kingdom of God as the Lord promises us. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory and be highly acclaimed by God and men. Everything that we have lost or had stolen from us will soon be restored. We will receive a just recompense for all our efforts.

Suffering In Sanctification

1Corinthians 1:30 “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:”

When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we become new creatures. This triggers a regeneration process in us, where our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is transformed. But that all takes time; we are not instantly changed into powerful Christians. We must sanctify ourselves and be baptized in the Holy Spirit, so that we are strengthened in our inner spirit man. We should strive to be holy and perfect, just as the Lord is holy and perfect.

Sanctification can often be painful and difficult for us. There are many things that we must relinquish in order to be sacred vessels for the Lord’s use in the days that lie ahead. We must crucify our flesh and all its appetites. We have to subdue our souls and forego all selfish ambitions. We must make the Lord’s eternal plan and purpose the most important thing in our lives. All of this takes concerted effort, but we can be sure that we will have good results if we are persistent.

Our bodies and souls will eventually be redeemed, just as our spirits have been. If we are diligent and sincere, we will soon begin to imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself. Our thoughts, attitudes, words and actions will begin to resemble His very own. We will learn to walk as He walked on the earth and be humble servants of others. We have not only been saved from our sins, but we have been given supernatural wisdom to operate just as our Redeemer did.

We will develop the very mind of Christ and see others as He would. We will preach and teach the Gospel of the Kingdom, so that they might be set free from all their sins and receive eternal life. We will heal all those who are sick from their diseases and afflictions. We will cast out demons and set men free from bondage of all types. We will even raise the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit of God at work in us. Nothing will be impossible to us if we are truly “in Christ.”

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

We should work at developing our personal relationship with God by spending time in His Word and in prayer and meditation. He will share His wisdom, knowledge and revelation with us. We will need supernatural insight and endurance for the days that lie ahead. The Lord’s guidance and direction will always build up our faith and strengthen us in the power of His might.

He will purge us of all that defiles us, if we permit Him access to our lives. There are certain things that we must relinquish if we will follow the Lord. We have to forego all carnality. We have to abandon our goals and ambitions and seek His will. He may ask us to separate ourselves from contaminating worldly influence, which may leave us at odds with those that we know and love.

We have no choice but to be obedient and set ourselves apart for divine service to others. We have eternal destinies to fulfill and there is no time for us to be rebellious. Many lives are at stake and we should respond immediately to the Lord’s call on our lives. We are ushering in the Kingdom of God to the earth and all of creation is waiting for us to assume our roles as the sons of God.

1Peter 4:13 “But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.”

The flesh is ever at war with the spirit. We struggle in our efforts to become holy and spiritually mature. We should continue to repent from all sin and renounce it once and for all. We must sanctify ourselves in the truth, and lay down all desires of the flesh and soul that interfere with our doing the will of God in all matters. We have an inheritance with the saints to preserve, but we must earnestly contend for our faith.

It is true that the Lord has given us grace, or unmerited favor, with Him. But if we sin and fall short of His glory, we must repent from the heart and ask His forgiveness. Then and only then, will He restore us to right standing with Him and reinstate all of our blessings for righteousness. He is a loving, merciful and compassionate God, and will even blot our iniquity from His memory if we are sincere and remorseful.

All that we are called to endure in our walk of faith will be well worth our effort. Although we take up the sufferings of Christ Himself in our daily lives and have to defend our beliefs, we will one day share in His eternal glory. Our sorrow and pain will be turned to eternal joy and gladness. We will be blessed beyond expectations and rewarded for our faithfulness. The Lord will make all things new in the Kingdom of God.

Romans 8:1 “[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

Very soon now, there will be no more condemnation leveled against God’s people for seeking righteousness and truth and following the one true faith. We will become a praise on the earth for our devotion and persistence, and the Lord Himself will glorify His people called after His name. All men will eventually have the opportunity to know God and embrace the truth.

We are partnering with the Lord to usher in His Kingdom and we will have a generous reward for our efforts. We are chosen and privileged to be able to share our faith with others and enable them to be converted and baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. We will minister healing life to the sick and infirm, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life in the days ahead.

As we fight the good fight of faith, we will usher in the Kingdom of God in all of its glory. We will set men free in the truth and overcome all evil with good, as the Lord intends for us to do. We will establish peace and order on the earth and deliver all of creation free of decay and destruction. Everything that we do will be done in the power of the Holy Spirit and magnify our God.

Acts 20:32 “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.”

We have an obligation to sanctify ourselves and seek God’s will for our lives. We have important callings and eternal destinies that must be fulfilled in the days to come. We have no time for games and should have no patience for devils that tempt us to sin and violate God’s law. The enemy is a defeated foe and we should resist him in all his efforts. We can plead the Blood of Jesus Christ over all our situations and circumstances, and Satan must acquiesce. He cannot continue to oppress and harass us, as long as we are aware of his methods and resist him.

The Body of Christ has an anointing for evangelization and ministry. We should deliver strong testimonies to the saving power of Jesus Christ in our own lives. If men reject us, it will only be for a time and a season. The Lord Himself will soon return to vindicate us. When His glory is revealed, we will be honored and glorified with Him. He will make us a praise on the earth. Christ will boast of us to all creation. We will rule and reign over all the nations of the world in His eternal Kingdom. We will be kings and priests of God and just rulers of all His people.

The joy that we experience in the Kingdom of God will far eclipse all the pain and suffering we have had to endure in our walk with the Lord during our lives. Whatever we are faced with now will be reversed, and our fortunes will be restored one day very soon. The Lord will blot all pain and sorrow from our memory, and give us peace and prosperity in the Kingdom of God. He will provide all of our needs even before we ask Him. We will enjoy our lives in His loving presence for all of eternity, and give Him all the thanks, praise and honor that He deserves.

Patience In Tribulation

Romans 5:3-4 “And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope:”

It often seems that the closer we are to God, the more we have to struggle to maintain our balance in the midst of problems that confront us. The enemy has a demonic assignment on the Body of Christ. He wants to deter us in our efforts to love and serve God and interfere with our peace. He can only annoy and harass us; He will not be successful in destroying God’s people.

There are many demonically driven tests and trials that we incur in our daily lives. Poverty and lack may threaten us. Broken relationships trouble us. Health problems and afflictions of all types beset us. But we are never alone in our struggles. The Lord is always with us in all that we experience. He waits for us to come to Him, so that He can show Himself strong on our behalf.

Tribulation develops patience in us, despite the fact that it makes us uncomfortable for a time and a season. It tests our strength and endurance, and ultimately, we emerge far better than we were before our troubles. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, and we will eventually overcome all efforts of the enemy by the Blood of Jesus and the power of our words.

1Peter 3:13 “And who [is] he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?”

The Lord will protect us from all harm and even send His angels to minister to us. We are not orphans; we are sons and daughters of the living God. We can rely on the Lord to keep us safe. We are joint-heirs with Christ to all the promises of righteousness and we have an eternal destiny that must be fulfilled. The Lord will lead and equip us to do all that is required of us in the days ahead. We can have total trust and confidence in Him that we will be successful.

Our part is to be fully sanctified and dedicated to the Lord’s eternal redemption plan and purpose. If we are willing and obedient, we will usher in the Kingdom of God, as He intends. He will impart His very own divine power and authority to us, so that we can take back the entire earth and present it to Jesus Christ for His rule and reign. We will overcome all evil with good. The enemy will not stand a chance when the Lord’s people rise up and take dominion over him.

We should be patient for God to manifest in our lives. He will never disappoint us or allow us to be ashamed in our persistent waiting for Him. He always demonstrates His love, mercy and compassion for His people. He defends our cause and supernaturally enables us to accomplish mighty feats in His name. He has promised us that He will never leave us or forsake us, and that He will supply all that we require in abundance. All of heaven responds to our needs.

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

We can be oppressed by fear, doubt and unbelief even though we are righteous and in good standing with the Lord. We may struggle with any number of problems that interfere with our peace and threaten our well-being. We must be patient in our walk with God and trust Him to manifest His strength on our behalf. He will meet all of our needs abundantly, according to His riches in glory. It is His deepest desire to give us all good things that prosper us, even as our souls our minds, wills and emotions prosper.

Our God knows what we need even before we ask Him. He is never stingy in dealing with His children. He wants to be a generous Father to us and have us rely on Him for whatever we need. We can always count on Him to give us all that we require to be healthy, happy and successful. We should have boldness and confidence in His provision for us. He will defend and protect us against all of our enemies. Anyone who comes against us will fail in his efforts. We have the benefit of divine protection from all harm.

The Lord will never abandon us in our tests, trials and tribulation. He promises us that He will uphold our cause at all times and vindicate all wrongs that are done to us. He wants us dependent on Him, rather than struggling on our own. He will lead and guide us in all our ways, and reveal all that we need to know to be successful in our Christian walk. We have continuous access to the throne of grace; God is ever ready to hear from us and will always respond to our prayers for divine intervention in all of our affairs.

Hebrews 13:5-6 “[Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Our Father is delighted when we come to Him with our needs and troubles. He wants to fellowship intimately with us. We can bring any thought, concern or request to Him. No need is too small or any problem too difficult for Him to solve. No matter what we might encounter, the Lord will be right at our side to help us overcome all hindrances. He will never leave us or forsake us, and has promised He will be with us until the end of this world, as we know it.

Fear, doubt and unbelief come from Satan, the enemy of our souls, and blind our minds to the truth. We should always bind these negative emotions and loose trust, hope and confidence in our lives instead. Whatever we bind on the earth is also bound in heaven. So too, whatever blessings we loose for others or for ourselves are enforced by God Himself. It is His greatest desire to protect us from all evil and supply us with all good things that benefit us in every way.

We have rights and privileges as the sons of God. We no longer lead defeated lives, nor are we subject to demonic harassment. We have been given all divine power and authority on the earth, so that we can prevail in all things. What we believe and decree in our lives will manifest in the natural. We must guard our thoughts and words to make certain that they line up with the Word and the will of God. He wants us to be totally victorious in this life and in the next.

Persistence Despite Persecution

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.”

We should spread our faith regardless of how men react to us. We must be persistent in preaching the Gospel message and disregard any negativity or resistance that we experience. We need only plant the seed; the Lord Himself will water the ground and draw all men to Himself. It is not His will that any man should perish for lack of knowledge in the truth.

Although we may be scorned and ridiculed for our faith now, that will all change as we approach the coming of the Kingdom of God to the earth. The Lord will show Himself strong in His people and we will perform miracles, signs and wonders in His name to demonstrate His mercy, love and compassion to all of mankind. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead.

All men will look to us as role models in the days to come. We should be living testimonies to the power of God at work in our own lives as we minister to others. We should teach them how to be righteous and walk in love. Our behavior must be above and beyond reproach. We are ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and we should be strong witnesses to others.

We should walk circumspectly because the days are short. We must be continually vigilant to do all that the Lord requires of us. We will all be judged before the mercy seat of Jesus Christ in the very near future. We cannot afford to be disobedient in any way. The righteous will receive eternal blessings in the Kingdom of God, but the rebellious will all be punished in the lake of fire.

Psalm 71:24 “My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.”

Our righteousness is not determined by the law, but solely by our faith in Christ Himself. We are covered by His Blood and sanctified in the truth, despite the fact that we occasionally sin. The Lord is ever ready to hear our penitential prayers and forgive us again. If we are truly sincere and renounce all our sins, He will always restore us to right standing and even blot our sin from His memory. All our blessings for righteousness will then be reinstated. We will be justified in His eyes as His very own children.

That never gives us the right to be deliberately rebellious. God is not obligated to give us a second chance. It is only by His grace that we are spared the penalty for our sin, which is death itself. It just so happens that He is ever merciful and compassionate to us. However, there will come a day in the near future that the Lord no longer gives us an opportunity to repent and get it right. He will draw a line in the sand that no man can cross. We will all be held accountable for our deeds in the flesh and judged accordingly.

There are many lives at stake. We should share our faith with all men, despite the fact that many will reject us and ridicule our zeal. We have an obligation to spread the Gospel message all over the world. The Lord will facilitate our efforts and arrange all our contacts so that we are successful. He vindicates us before men and angels. We will have praise for our former shame. Those who have cast aspersions against us for our faith will be humbled under the mighty hand of God. He will not permit us to be scorned forever.

Very soon now, the Kingdom of God will be ushered into the earth and all men will hold us in the highest esteem. They will be thankful that we made the effort to preach the Gospel message despite the persecution we were forced to endure. We will instruct all mankind in righteous Kingdom principles. We will be kings and priests of God and even judge both men and angels. Christ will share His very own honor and glory with us, as we rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world for all of eternity.

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

The Bible says that we go from glory to glory. We are justified by our faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement on our behalf for all time, but we have to walk out our faith on a daily basis. We should follow all of God’s commandments and put Him first in our lives. We should love Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength, and love others as we love ourselves. We will have to strengthen and fortify ourselves to be above criticism and the persecution of men. If we do so, we will fulfill the total requirement for the law of love and please God with our obedience.

We have a divine commission to do the works of Jesus Christ Himself. We are to walk as He walked on the earth and spread the Gospel of His Kingdom to all men. We should heal the sick, deliver captives from enemy oppression and even raise the dead. We have Christ’s very own anointing power and authority to do good wherever we go. We will glorify His name throughout the earth and attract many to be saved, converted and baptized into righteousness and truth.

If we serve Jesus Christ, as we ought to do, and fulfill His divine commission to us despite the resistance that we meet, we will receive a huge reward for our efforts. We will share in the eternal inheritance that Christ Himself will one day receive. The Kingdom of God is reserved for the saints of God and we will inherit all of its blessings one day in the very near future if we are patient and persistent. We will rule and reign with Jesus Christ and judge both men and angels. Men will soon look up to us and give us praise and honor instead of scorn, ridicule and derision.

We will be kings and priests of God and the Lord will boast of us to all creation. We will enforce Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality, so that all men dwell in love and unity. There will be peace and prosperity, safety and security for all of God’s people in the Kingdom of God. Our bodies will even be changed, so that we are no longer susceptible to disease, decay and death. We will live long and strong in the very presence of our God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Divine Vindication

Isaiah 63:4 “For the day of vengeance [is] in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.”

Many have been persecuted for their faith and numerous wars have been fought in the name of religion. God’s people have been afflicted with much pain and sorrow. They have lost dignity, property, family, friends and even their lives themselves. The Lord has seen all the oppression and exploitation of His people and will turn their captivity for all of eternity.

The people of God mature in the sufferings that they are called upon to endure. We take up the cross where Christ let off, and temporarily suffer with Him in this world. However, our suffering will not lead to death. On the contrary, we will have eternal life because of all that He endured on our behalf. Anything that we contend with now will be reversed one day very soon.

While we may not yet be fully accepted by men in the world, Christ Himself will soon vindicate us and restore all of our losses. He will avenge all wrongs done to us, and destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness, as He promises us. There will come a time in the very near future when men will no longer deny the one true God and His inimitable power and glory.

1Samuel 24:12 “The LORD judge between me and thee, and the LORD avenge me of thee: but mine hand shall not be upon thee.”

Jesus Christ will soon return to vanquish all evil off the face of the earth quickly and efficiently. He will not be ignored by the unrighteous or persuaded to be lenient with the unjust. He will take vengeance on all the enemies of His people and drive them into the eternal lake of fire. They will have to acknowledge Him in all of His greatness and deal with His wrath.

We need not take our own revenge or fight our own battles. The Lord has seen all our heartache. He will rise up on our behalf and deal with all of our adversaries one day very soon. His judgment is irrefutable and will be final and permanent. Anyone who has injured His people, or interfered with their service to Him and to others, will be strictly judged and severely punished.

He will bind up our wounds and give us honor and glory for our former shame and persecution. He will usher us into His Kingdom and protect us from all evil for all eternity. There will be safety and security, love, peace and unity in the Kingdom of God. All men will honor God and openly acknowledge His Son, Jesus Christ, as King of kings and Lord of lords.

2Corinthians 4:17 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory; 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.”

Very soon now there will be a public outcry for the Lord and His way of doing things and being right. We will no longer be the objects of derision. Men will flock to us to learn our secrets and hear the Gospel of the Kingdom. They will be desperate for the truth and hungry for salvation. Surrounded with darkness, they will deliberately choose the light.

It is the Lord’s desire that all men come to Him and discover the truth. Our lives should be continuous testimonies to the power and love of God at work in us. We must be godly role models and strong witnesses. We should share the Gospel of the Kingdom in all its power, so that all men will have an opportunity to be converted and baptized.

There will be such a huge outpouring of miraculous signs and wonders all over the earth, that everyone will be compelled to take notice of our God in all His glory. He will imbue us with His very own power, so that we can work miracles, sign and wonders in His name and attract others to our faith. Many will be saved, converted and baptized unto eternal life.

All the sick will be healed and many captives will be set free of affliction and oppression. Men will no longer suffer at the hands of the enemy as we take back the earth. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that have held them in bondage. Even the dead will be raised back to life, so that they share in the blessings of God’s Kingdom for all time.

We will soon be rewarded for all of our faithfulness in serving the Lord. No one will be able to steal our birthright or interfere with our blessings in any way. The Lord will fully compensate us for all of our struggles on His behalf. He is a just God and He will provide for us beyond all our expectations. He will abundantly meet our needs for all eternity.

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

There will come a time in the very near future when all men, from the least to the greatest of us, will know the Lord and have His laws written in our minds and hearts. There will be peace and unity on the earth and everyone will walk in love for the Lord and for his neighbor. There will be no more war or conflict in our relationships. We will all dwell together as brothers and sisters.

The Kingdom of God will be an eternal refuge for all those who seek the truth, and the Lord will receive all the honor and glory that He deserves. He will forgive us for all our iniquity and blot out all memory of our transgressions. There will no longer be a separation between God and man. He will provide for all of our needs in abundance and fellowship with us for all of eternity.

The people of God will no longer be mocked; our names will become a praise on the earth. We will share in Christ’s eternal promises for righteousness. The Lord Himself will vindicate us and boast of us to all creation. We will have many rewards for our faithfulness in serving God’s eternal redemption plan, and we will rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world.

Just Recompense

Isaiah 61:7 “For your shame [ye shall have] double; and [for] confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.”

We will one day be heroes to our people rather than scorned and ostracized. Men will be grateful that we witnessed to them and shared our saving faith, so that they could be set free. The Lord Himself will glorify us with the glory that He gave Jesus Christ. We will be totally vindicated and become a praise on the earth, instead of experiencing opposition. We will enjoy positions of honor in God’s Kingdom, and be heirs to all of its many benefits for our faithfulness.

The Kingdom of God will level all playing fields once and for all. We will enjoy just recompense for all that has been taken from us. The Lord will restore all that we have lost in our service to Him and generously reward us for our efforts on His behalf. He is a just God and will not permit us to lack in any area of our lives. It is His desire to give us all that the universe has to offer and He will compensate us for any discomfort or cost that we incurred.

We will experience everlasting joy and freedom in the Kingdom of God. He will boast of us to all creation and make our names a praise on the earth. We will judge both men and angels and rule and reign with Christ Himself over all the nations of the world. The Kingdom of God will be our inheritance for faithful service, and no man or devil will threaten our birthright. Christ will make certain that Kingdom principles of fairness and justice prevail for all time.

Matthew 25:34 “Then shall the King say unto them at his right hand, Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:”

God’s people will soon be totally restored and blessed beyond their wildest imaginings. We will rejoice in all that God does for us. We will inherit the Kingdom of God and all of its many benefits. We will enjoy endless peace and unlimited prosperity all the days of our lives. Our bodies will be redeemed and live forever in the very presence of God Himself. We will walk in love and unity with our neighbors and be praised for our faithful service to them.

We will be reunited with all our loved ones and build beautiful homes to lodge our large families. Our children and our children’s children will be blessed for all generations to come. We will plant crops and enjoy their yield for food in a virtual paradise on the earth. All men will finally know the Lord and give Him all the thanks and honor that He deserves. There will be nothing evil or defiling that disturbs the peace and serenity of life in the Kingdom of God.

The Lord will appoint us as kings and priests of His people for all of eternity. We will have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth. We will judge both men and angels and share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We will rule and reign as just governors and overseers in God’s Kingdom. We will be key players in Kingdom government and enforce its standards of fairness, justice and equality, so that all men will be treated with respect.

Psalm 44:7 “But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.”

No one will dare to contend with God’s people any longer, since He will soon demonstrate His awesome power in our lives. All evil will soon be destroyed off the face of the earth. We will be supernaturally protected from all harm, and glorified with Jesus Christ Himself when He returns to rule and reign in His Kingdom for all eternity. The Lord will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. We will no longer be shamed, ridiculed or scorned for our faith; we will be heroes to all of mankind.

We will have a generous reward for our devotion and loyalty to the Lord. He will restore everything that has been lost or taken from us over the years. We will share in all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom in the Kingdom of God. We will dwell in love and unity and enjoy the presence of the Lord Himself. He will take an active role in our lives and make certain that all of our needs are met in abundance for all of eternity.

The Kingdom of God will be a virtual paradise for us. All of creation will be restored and renewed; the earth will be like the Garden of Eden once again. We will walk in love, peace and fellowship with all men and Christ will make certain that principles of justice and equality are strictly enforced. Nothing that defiles man or God will be permitted to mar the perfection of life in God’s Kingdom. We will all know the Lord, from the least to the greatest of us, and worship Him in Spirit and truth as He earnestly desires.

Ruth 2:12 “The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.”

Our faith is a viable force in our lives. It is growing and expanding as we walk in it on a daily basis and contend for our beliefs before all of mankind. We should have trust and confidence that the Lord will reward us for our faith in Him. He will not forget our devoted service to Him and His people. We will have a full recompense for all our efforts on His behalf.

He will restore all that we have lost or had taken from us over the years. He will anticipate all of our needs even before we ask Him. Our God will share all the vast resources of the universe with us. We will be blessed in abundance for all eternity. No one will experience poverty and lack, oppression or exploitation of any kind. All evil will be far removed from God’s people.

We can expect a generous inheritance in the Kingdom of God. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, as He promises us. We will rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. We will judge both men and angels and enforce Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all men. We will receive a legacy of praise that no one can ever take from us.

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

Our children and our children’s children will all know and serve the Lord all the days of their lives. We will enjoy perpetual blessings with no downside. The Lord will anticipate all of our needs and provide all that we require to be healthy and happy. We will experience only peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, freedom and justice for all eternity.

The Lord will distribute all the vast resources of the universe to His people. We will be blessed beyond belief, but happy and content to merely be in His presence. He will be a Father to us, as He always desired. We will commune with Him intimately and share all the details of our lives with Him. The Kingdom of God will be serene and all of its residents will dwell in brotherly love with their neighbors.

The glory of the Lord will be our eternal light. We will give Him all the thanks and praise that He so deserves. All Kingdom residents will worship Him in Spirit and in truth and celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days with joy and gladness. We will be a holy people that dwell with their God for all of eternity. There will be no more separation between God and man.

All evil will be expelled from the Kingdom of God. There will be nothing that defiles God or man that ever interrupts the peace and serenity of life there. All evil will be banished to the lake of fire and Satan himself will be cast into the bottomless pit. The Lord, Jesus Christ, will rule with a rod of iron to make certain that Kingdom principles of righteousness, fairness and justice prevail for all mankind.

Chapter 2 – A Chosen Generation

 

2Thessalonians 2:14 “Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The good news of the Kingdom of God is available to one and all who will embrace it. Our redemption is finally secure; we have been delivered from the penalty of sin, which is death. We are no longer lost in our sin; our future is bright and promising. We have received the free gift of eternal life and we are legal beneficiaries to an inheritance that no one can ever take from us.

Jesus Christ died to save us from all of our sins and restore us to right standing with God for all time. He also brought us life in abundance, to include all material things that we need, as well as spiritual riches. He has given us wisdom and understanding of the deeper things of God and revealed everything that we need to know to be loving, righteous and obedient in our daily lives.

We are called to the very same glory that our Lord and Savior operated in. But we have to sanctify ourselves to be worthy of His divine anointing power and authority to manifest in and through us. We will have to crucify our flesh, abandon all selfish soul ambitions and relinquish worldliness. If we purge ourselves of all unrighteousness, we will become like Christ Himself.

2Corinthians 5:17 “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;”

When we were saved and born again, we probably chose to be baptized in water to the death of our sins. Our new spirit man rose again in Christ to be renewed and transformed. Our behavior will evolve over time and we will become more godly in all that we think, say and do. But first, we must be sanctified and set apart for the Lord’s use. We have eternal callings to embrace.

We should imitate the life of Jesus Christ Himself, who has called us to complete His ministry on the earth. We will walk as He walked and do the very things that He did. We will preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again. There will be nothing that is impossible to us, as we usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God to the earth realm.

All of creation will recognize us as the sons and daughters of God in the days ahead. We will be admired and praised for our role in rescuing all mankind from total destruction. The Lord will boast of us and we will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We will be appointed kings and priests of God and reconcile all men to Him through our evangelistic efforts on His behalf.

2Peter 1:3 “According as his divine power hath given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:”

Our Savior, Jesus Christ, not only came to save us from our sins, but also to destroy all the works of the devil. He taught us the ways of God and restored our righteousness to us once and for all. His influence in our lives gives us the power to overcome sin and reign victorious in life. We are able to become holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect, so that we can one day dwell in His presence.

We should follow all of the Lord’s commandments to us and walk in love for Him and others at all times. We ought to request the baptism of the Holy Spirit and strive for glory and virtue. If we walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh, we will have faith, peace and joy. We will become meek and longsuffering; lead temperate and disciplined lives; and be good and gentle in our dealings with all men.

These spiritual fruit will continue to grow and overtake us, so that we lead lives that are godly and righteous. We will reach full spiritual maturity and be more like our Lord in every way. Our lives will be continuous demonstrations of God’s power and glory at work in us and through us to bless all of mankind. We will rise up in our authority and fulfill our divine destinies in the very near future.

Called With A Holy Calling

2Timothy 1:9-10 “Who hath saved us, and called [us] with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,”

Mankind was created for greatness; we were formed in the very image and likeness of God Himself to live forever in His presence. It was the Lord’s plan to fellowship intimately with us as His children, and provide for all of our needs. However, all that changed in the Garden of Eden. Adam’s disobedience brought iniquity on us all and cost us our dominion over the earth. It interrupted our right standing with God and caused separation between us. The Lord had a plan for our redemption, so that we would not be condemned to death for our sins, as we deserve.

He spared us from the penalty of sin, by sending His own Son to the earth realm in atonement for all our transgression. Through our faith in Christ we are restored to right standing with God and He can bless us as He always intended. However, we have a serious obligation to continually sanctify ourselves and remain righteous at all times. We have inherited eternal life and we are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the promises of God. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places and have access to the same divine power and authority to do the good works that He did.

We have eternal callings and divine destinies that will be fulfilled, as we usher in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will empower us with Christ’s very own anointing to serve Him and His people. We should preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, heal all the sick and infirm and cast out demons of all kinds. We will even raise the dead back to life again, if we recognize our power and authority to do so. We will tear down all enemy strongholds that hold men in bondage and interfere with heaven coming to the earth. The Lord will be glorified in us in all that we do.

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

Jesus Christ was the firstborn of many sons and daughters, the Bible tells us. We are the children of God by our faith in Christ. We are deemed righteous and holy, just as He is righteous and holy. When the Lord sees us, He sees Jesus in all of His glory. We have been restored to right standing with the Father for all time and we have an eternal inheritance that we can expect.

It is possible for us to approach the throne of grace with every need and concern that we have. We are actually seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God. We can make all of our needs known and be assured that they will be met. We also have hope and confidence that the Lord will supply everything that we need to be successful in what we must do.

We have been called out of darkness and sanctified in the light of the truth. We are a chosen generation, a special people that the Lord has selected to be instrumental in His eternal redemption plan. We are the sons of God on the earth, and we have unique callings and divine destinies to fulfill in the days that lie ahead. We will be ushering the Kingdom of God into the earth realm.

Our Lord will never leave us or forsake us. If we are called to His service, we will be fully equipped to serve Him as He desires. He will imbue us with His very own power and authority to operate as Christ did on the earth. We will preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again. We will destroy anything evil that impedes our progress.

In The World, But Not Of It

John 15:19 “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

We have been called from the very beginning of time to serve the Lord in righteousness and singleness of purpose. While we may not be very popular with other men, we are chosen by God to fulfill His eternal redemption plan. We have been sanctified in the truth and justified through our faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ. We purposely choose to walk in love and peace with all men and our thoughts, words and behavior are above and beyond reproach.

We are in the world, but not of it. We are consecrated and set apart for eternal callings to serve the Lord in the critical days to come. We cannot permit ourselves to be contaminated by any defilement, if we will be entrusted with His very own anointing power and authority. Sanctification must be our primary goal and we must be totally sold out to the things of God, rather than our own agendas. Then and only then, will we be able to function as we are intended.

We will have to ignore the criticism of men and be tuned in to the Lord alone in the days that lie ahead. The approval of God should be paramount in our minds. We have to partner with Him in ushering in His Kingdom. We cannot hope to please others in what we are called to do. They will probably not understand the significance of our contribution until much later. However, one day we will be vindicated and they will thank us for our efforts on their behalf.

Romans 12:1 “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.”

We have presented our bodies as living sacrifices to the Lord in service to His eternal plan and purpose. We have laid down our personal lives, crucified our fleshly desires and relinquished our selfish soul ambitions. We are in preparation for our divine destinies and nothing will interfere with our callings. We are striving to walk in the Holy Spirit, and say and do, only what the Lord would have us say and do. We are planning to take up the ministry of Jesus Christ Himself.

We are sanctified as never before, so that we can be effective ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. All men will be watching us to see if our behavior is consistent with what we preach to them. We must be above and beyond reproach in all that we do. We are sons and daughters of almighty God Himself, and we must be perfect, just as He is perfect. The future of all mankind is at stake and we can permit nothing to interfere with our serving God as we are destined to do.

We are single minded and united in our goal to take back the earth from the enemy and usher in the Kingdom of God. We walk as one, under the leadership and guidance of Christ Himself. We are totally obedient and respond immediately to all of His direction to us. We are the Body of Christ and nothing will interfere with our work or impede our progress. All of heaven backs us up and we walk in power and authority to overcome all evil, demonic strongholds with good.

Isaiah 1:19 “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:”

We are willing and obedient to do all that is assigned us in the critical days ahead. We will be ushering in the Kingdom of God on the earth, and we stand ready to move as the Lord Himself commands us. He will direct our paths and equip us with His very own divine power and authority to walk as Christ Himself walked on the earth. We will be successful in all that we do to serve Him.

No human controversy or satanic influence will prevent us from doing what the Lord has called us to do for His people. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that would impede our progress or interfere with our establishing peace, order and stability on the earth. The Gospel will be preached with power and conviction, so that men everywhere will be able to embrace our faith.

They will be healed of all their afflictions, as we lay hands on the sick. We will cast out demons that torment and oppress them. We will even raise the dead back to life again through the power of the Holy Spirit. We will prepare the entire earth for the Kingdom of God and overcome all evil with good. There will be nothing that is impossible to us, if we serve the Lord as He desires.

We will receive many blessings and eternal rewards in God’s Kingdom. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and make our names a praise on the earth. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. We will judge both men and angels and be given the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth.

Selected For Greatness

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

We were created for greatness to be manifested in these last days. The Lord formed us in His very own image and likeness to have dominion over everything in the earth. However, Adam’s deliberate disobedience caused him to relinquish his authority to Satan. The Lord was compelled to develop an alternate plan for the redemption of mankind. He sent His very own Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth to save us from our sins and to defeat the devil on our behalf.

Christ spoiled all principalities and powers with His victory over sin, death and the grave. He restored dominion on the earth back to men where it belongs. All that remains is that we take a stand against evil and assert ourselves as the very sons and daughters of almighty God. We must know who we are, and whom we serve, in the days to come. We have divine destinies that will be fulfilled before Christ returns. We must rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing.

All demonic strongholds will be penetrated and overthrown, as the people of God take back total power and authority over all matters on the earth. We will help to eradicate all evil and overcome it with good. We will restructure world governments to line up with Kingdom principles and establish peace and order on this planet. We will restore all of nature back to its original beauty and balance; take control of the plant and animal kingdoms; and even stabilize the climate.

The entire world will be positively affected through our efforts to usher in the Kingdom of God. Nothing will remain the same. There will be no more violence, conflict, oppression, poverty and lack on the earth. We will work to eliminate all natural catastrophes that harm mankind and cause widespread destruction. There will soon be peace, order and stability. We will speak to everything in our environment and it will line up with the Word and will of God for all mankind.

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.”

We have not done anything in our own merit that would entitle us to be chosen by the Lord for His use in the days to come. We are simply walking out our divine destinies, as He has revealed them to us. He will prepare and equip us to do all that we are required to do to bring heaven to the earth realm. The Lord will ultimately accomplish His eternal redemption plan.

He can and will use ordinary men, women and even children to execute His wishes on the earth. Our education, talent and experience will have no bearing on our ability to be used by God to usher in His Kingdom. Our age, sex, religion and nationality will mean nothing. If we have yielded our lives to the Lord in total submission, He will be able to work through us.

The Lord delights in partnering with His people. He will use us as ambassadors for the Kingdom of God if we are willing and obedient to Him. We will attract others to our faith with miracles, signs and wonders that are performed in His name. It is His greatest desire that all men will come to the truth and believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, so that they can also be saved.

Whatever we require to be successful will be given to us, if we ask in Christ’s name. All of heaven stands ready to back us up in our efforts. Legions of ministering angels will pave the way for us to bring in the full-end time harvest of souls that is needed. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be called, converted, saved and baptized in Jesus’ name.

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

The people of God come in all sizes, shapes and colors. There are righteous men, women and children all over the world that will serve the Lord in ushering in His Kingdom. Anyone who is sanctified in flesh and soul and dedicated to the Lord’s service, can and will be used as sacred vessels for His anointing power in the critical days that lie ahead.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with zeal and conviction and bring in the full end-time harvest of souls that is necessary. We will lay hands on the sick and they will all recover. We will cast out demons and unclean spirits and set men free in the truth. We will even raise the dead back to life again, as Christ Himself once did.

The Body of Christ is elect and chosen for greatness in these last days. We will reflect the power and glory of God for all the world to see. No evil will be able to operate against us and deter our efforts. We will take dominion over the entire earth, as we are destined to do. The Lord will be able to usher in His everlasting Kingdom through us.

Isaiah 41:9 “[Thou] whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou [art] my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.”

The Body of Christ is called from every tongue, race and nation of the earth. The Lord has His elect in position all over the world. We will take dominion in all things and spread our faith to all men, women and children as we are led. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be called and baptized in order to enter the Kingdom of God. No one will perish for lack of knowledge in the truth.

We will set men free from bondage and oppression of all types. We will heal the sick and infirm of all their diseases. We will cast out all demons that harass mankind and keep them in sin and darkness. We will even raise the dead back to life again by the awesome power and glory of God Himself. There is nothing that will be impossible to us, as we assist the Lord in bringing heaven to the earth realm as He desires.

Everything that we do to help usher in the Kingdom of God will line up with God’s eternal redemption plan for mankind. We are simply willing and obedient vessels sanctified for His use. He will imbue us with His very own anointing power and authority to take back the earth from the devil and restore peace and order on the planet. Everything will be changed and prepared for Jesus Christ to return for His rule and reign.

The Purging Fire Of God

Isaiah 48:10 “Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.”

Everything that we have experienced in our lives has led up to this important moment. We have been tried in the furnace of affliction and been found worthy to serve the Lord. We have suffered pain and sorrow, but the Lord Himself has comforted us and bound up all our wounds. He has great plans for us, but He expects us to give up everything in love and provide service to Him.

Our sanctification is effected through much personal suffering. It is difficult to lay down our own ambitions and crucify our carnal desires. Striving for holiness and perfection is impossible without the operation of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We have sacrificed all that we have and taken up our cross for Jesus Christ. We will walk as He walked on the earth, in total love and humility.

We are consecrated and dedicated to bring heaven to the earth realm, as the Lord has intended for thousands of years. We are willing and able to do all that He requires of us in the days ahead. He will confer His very own divine power and authority on us to enable us to be successful. All we must do is be willing and obedient to His directives, as we usher in the Kingdom of God.

Revelation 3:18-19 “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. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”

It is critical that we be totally cleansed of all defilement in body, soul and spirit. We have divine destinies that require us to be focused on eternity rather than the darkness around us. We cannot be both worldly and spiritually minded if we will be of service to God. We will have to be purified, consecrated and dedicated to His plan and purpose in the critical days that lie ahead. We should present our bodies as living sacrifices for His use at all times.

We were called from the foundation of the world to be instrumental in implementing the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. He has groomed us for service to Him and sanctified us, so that we can be sacred vessels for His anointing power and authority. We will be His partners in ushering in His Kingdom to the earth. There is much that must be done. All evil will be overturned and peace and order will prevail on the earth.

Christ will destroy all evil off the face of the earth in the wrath of His coming. Nothing defiling will ever enter into the Kingdom of God. Everyone who is rebellious and unrepentant will have his share in the lake of fire. Satan and all his minions will be banished to the bottomless pit. Nothing and no one will corrupt the peace and serenity of Kingdom life. God’s people will dwell with Him for all eternity in safety and security, joy and freedom.

Deuteronomy 4:24 “For the LORD thy God [is] a consuming fire, [even] a jealous God.”

The Lord desires that we put Him first in all things; He is a jealous God and wants our full attention and devotion. We must relinquish all our worldly idols and consecrate ourselves to His divine calling and purpose for our lives. We have eternal destinies that must be fulfilled in the days to come. We cannot put anyone or anything before our God and His needs.

We have to crucify our flesh and abandon all of our selfish ambitions, so that we are totally sanctified and prepared for our role in His eternal redemption plan. He will then confer His very own power and authority on us, so that we can fight the good fight of faith and prevail. We will preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life. We will impact the entire earth for good and overcome all evil that would interfere with our progress.

The people of God will rise up in the Lord’s very own power and glory and destroy all the works of the devil. We will take back the earth and everything in it for the Kingdom of God. We will restructure world governments and economic systems to line up with Kingdom principles. We will re-create all of nature, so that it is restored to its original beauty and balance.

Nothing will be impossible to us as we serve the Lord and His people in these last days. We will be given supernatural energy and miraculous capabilities to usher in the Kingdom of God. We will operate exactly as Christ intends, and take full dominion over all matters on the earth. We will be successful in establishing Kingdom principles of love and peace in this world, and prepare the hearts of all mankind to greet their Lord and Savior when He returns to us.

Proverbs 16:6 “By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD [men] depart from evil.”

All world governments will be challenged to see if they meet Kingdom standards of righteousness and justice for their people. Leaders who are cruel and despotic will be replaced. The Lord will not tolerate His people being exploited and oppressed for much longer. He will take steps to rectify this imbalance and punish all offenders. There will be nothing that defiles or injures God’s people as we enter His Kingdom.

The enemy wreaked havoc over all of nature since the fall of Adam, but we have been given back our dominion over everything in the earth. All of creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God, so that we can restore it to its original beauty and balance. Plants and animals will be in harmony with one another and subject to man. The climate will be regulated and natural disasters will be a thing of the past.

We can do nothing good through our own strength and talents. Whatever we require in accomplishing the Lord’s purpose will be freely given to us. We need only ask Him for His assistance, and He will be quick to provide it. He will assign legions of ministering angels to back us up and help us to fulfill His eternal redemption plan. We will be totally successful in all of our efforts to usher in the eternal Kingdom of God.

A Holy People

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

The Lord has chosen us over all the people on the earth and called us to fulfill divine destinies in the critical days that lie ahead. We will be leading all of mankind into the Kingdom of God on the earth. We cannot be distracted in any way or deterred in our efforts to overcome all evil with good. We have a serious obligation to hear from God and serve His people.

Much depends on our being totally focused and obedient to God. We have to take sanctification to an entirely different level. We cannot be worldly in any way; we will have to crucify our fleshly desires and relinquish all soul ambitions in favor of the Lord’s eternal redemption plan. We must make a concerted effort to hear His voice and respond immediately.

Ours is a distinct privilege and a sacred responsibility. The future of mankind is at stake, and we cannot afford to be careless or remiss in our duties. We must be totally consecrated and dedicated to preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. The Lord desires that all men come to know Him and love Him, so that He can fellowship intimately with us for all of eternity.

We are future kings and priests. We will actually rule and reign with Jesus Christ in His eternal Kingdom. All men will look up to us for guidance and direction. Our behavior must be holy and blameless; our thoughts and words themselves should be godly. We must be above and beyond reproach if we will serve as suitable ambassadors for the Kingdom of God.

Leviticus 20:26 “And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD [am] holy, and have severed you from [other] people, that ye should be mine.”

We are to be in the world, but not of it. We cannot succumb to contamination or defilement of any kind. God’s people are called to holiness and sanctification. We cannot be tainted by worldly desires or carnality of any form. We should lay down our lives in humble service to the Lord in fulfilling His eternal redemption plan. Many lives will be impacted for good and the future of the entire world depends upon our total willingness and obedience.

The Lord’s people are unique and very special to Him. We have been called from the foundation of the world to partner with Him. We have eternal destinies to fulfill and we will represent God in any capacity that He deems worthwhile. He will empower us to walk as Christ Himself walked on the earth. We will work miraculous signs and wonders in His name.

The Gospel will be preached to all the world with awesome power and conviction. The sons of God will reach everyone in every nation of the world. No man will perish for lack of hearing the truth. Everyone will have an opportunity to receive eternal life. Many will come to know the Lord and accept salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. We will baptize countless souls and gather in the entire end-time harvest, as the Lord desires for us to do.

All world governments will be restructured and reorganized to adhere to Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all men. Peace will be restored to the earth once and for all. All of creation will be renewed and restored to its original beauty and balance. Nature will be tamed and the plant and animal kingdoms will be in harmony with one another and with man.

The Lord will be with us in all that we are called to do. He has chosen us to be His voice and His hands on the earth, and He will not let us down. His anointing power will be imparted to us to glorify Him wherever we go. We will overcome evil with good and demonstrate His very own love, mercy and compassion to all men. We will have supernatural abilities and accomplish miraculous things in the days to come, as we usher in the Kingdom of God.

2Peter 1:10-11 “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: for so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”

In the days ahead, believers will be held to much higher standards of accountability than before. Sin can no longer rule our lives or interfere with our service to God. Our behavior will have to be above and beyond reproach if we will successfully draw others to our faith. We must purposely pursue our gifts and callings, so that we can usher in the Kingdom of God to the earth.

While we may think it is relatively unimportant that we cling to the desires of our flesh and personal soul ambitions, nothing could be further from the truth. Anything that interferes with our serving God has got to be eliminated. We cannot be both worldly and spiritually minded. We must make the decision to fully commit to the Lord’s eternal redemption plan and purpose.

Much is at stake and our willingness and obedience is vital to the Lord and His people. We will have duties with eternal ramifications. If we fail to respond to the Lord’s call on our lives, important work will remain undone. All of mankind is looking to us and their fate lies in our hands. We will have to rise up in our kingly and priestly roles and release them from bondage.

We are expected to be living testimonies to the power and glory of God in our own lives before we can effectively witness to others. So too, we must be sanctified to have the Lord’s anointing power manifest through us. His Spirit takes leave of unclean vessels. We have to be purged of all that contaminates us. The Lord can only use us if we are totally submitted to Him.

Very soon now, we will have a generous reward for all of our troubles. The Lord will boast of us to all of creation. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. The Lord will appoint us as kings and priests. All men will look up to us, as we teach them Kingdom principles of love, peace and unity to live by.

Sacred Vessels For His Use

Ephesians 1:4 “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:”

We must be sanctified and consecrated for the Lord’s purpose. That requires us to lay down our fleshly desires and personal ambitions in favor of His plan for our lives. We must walk in love for Him and for others, and be humble and obedient servants.

We should strive for righteousness and godliness in all our thoughts, words and behavior. We must be beyond reproach if we would attract others to our faith. We should be testimonies to the power and glory of God at work in our own individual lives.

We should imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself, since we will walk as He walked in the days to come. Christ only said and did what the Father told Him to do. We should do likewise, if we will pick up the duties of His ministry and be effective.

We must strive for holiness and perfection in our lives, just as the Lord is holy and perfect. We will spend all of eternity with Him and nothing defiling can enter into His presence. We should follow all of His commandments and walk in love and humility.

We will be teachers and rulers of all men in the Kingdom of God. We must learn to judge both men and angels with just, fair and equitable standards. We should practice Kingdom principles now, so we can enforce peace and unity as a future way of life.

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

The truth has set us free for all time. The Lord always requires perfect obedience from us, and we cannot put our own plans and ambitions before His eternal redemption plan. We must subdue our fleshly desires and rid ourselves of all worldliness in favor of His goals and purposes for us. We have eternal callings and divine destinies to fulfill; we cannot be doing our own thing.

Obedience is of the essence in the days ahead. We cannot compromise our righteousness in any way. We must fully surrender ourselves to the Lord and permit His purging fire to cleanse us of all that defiles us. We must be focused on eternity, rather than on our daily lives. Much is at stake, and we cannot afford to be distracted in any way or we will not be able to serve the Lord.

We must sanctify ourselves totally and completely; learn to walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh; and lay down our own personal agendas in the days ahead. We must seek the Lord’s guidance and direction in all situations and circumstances and be well schooled in His way of doing things. We should follow all of His commandments and walk in love, as we have been instructed.

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

If we are suitable vessels for His use, a full anointing of Christ’s very own awesome power and authority will be given to us. We must carefully protect that by walking in obedience, as He walked on the earth. We should be totally consecrated and dedicated to preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, healing the sick, casting out demons and even raising the dead back to life again.

We will speak to seemingly impossible situations and take dominion over them. We will overcome all evil with good and bind all of Satan’s operations on the earth. All world governments will be realigned with Kingdom principles, and peace and unity will prevail. We will restore all of creation back to its original beauty and balance simply by calling it to divine order.

Nothing that we do will be accomplished in our own strength. We will serve as conduits for the anointing power and authority of Christ Himself. We are His representatives on the earth who will take back the entire world for the Kingdom of God and present it to Him on His return. If we are faithful to our calling, we will receive many rewards in this life and in the coming Kingdom.

Conformed To Christ’s Image

Romans 8:29-30 “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 beginning of time. He predestined us to be like His very own Son, Jesus Christ, in every way. We are His sons and daughters if we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, and believe that He died to save us from our sins. We have a divine calling; the Lord has a special plan and an eternal purpose for our lives.

We are justified by our faith in Christ and made righteous in His Blood. We will also be glorified with Him in doing the works that He did on the earth. We will usher in the Kingdom of God with such dynamic power, that men in the world will have to take notice. They will repent of their sin, be converted and baptized into the one true faith.

The sick will be healed; we will cast out demons and even raise the dead in the days to come. The Lord will work through His people to bless all of mankind and demonstrate His mercy and compassion to them. We will work miraculous signs and wonders to attest to our faith and draw all men to the one true God and His perfect way of doing things.

All evil will be overcome with good, as we put all of Christ’s enemies underneath His feet. We will take total dominion over Satan. There will be peace and order on the earth, and we will successfully prepare all of mankind to greet their King. Jesus Christ will soon return to receive His Kingdom and we will be glorified with Him for all eternity.

Colossians 2:11-15 “In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with [him] through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; [And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”

We have been circumcised in our spirit man, and conformed to the exact image of Jesus Christ Himself through our faith in Him. Our baptism with water signifies our death to sin and resurrection in the newness of life. The Lord has quickened us with the very same resurrection power that raised Christ from the dead. We walk just as He walked on the earth.

Christ spoiled all demonic principalities and powers with His victory over sin, death and the grave. He stripped Satan of all his power and authority and gave dominion on the earth back to men. We now have the privilege and obligation to set matters straight on the earth. We will restore peace and order to the planet and prepare the way of the Lord.

We will take control of all human governments and their economies to make certain that only Kingdom principles of fairness and justice prevail. We will speak to all of creation and eliminate the decay and destruction found in nature. Everything will be restored to its original beauty and balance. Plants, animals and the climate will be in harmony again.

Everything that we do will line up with the Word and the will of God according to His purpose. We will not act in our own authority or operate in our own strength. The battle belongs to the Lord, and He will fully equip us to be successful. We will overcome all evil with good, so that the Kingdom of God can be ushered in with all of its power and glory.

Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

The Gospel will be preached all over the world and men will be set free in unprecedented numbers, so that they can be saved unto eternal life and enter into the Kingdom of God. We will work miracles, signs and wonders to attract them to our faith and demonstrate the love, mercy and compassion of God Himself. We will heal the sick, cast out devils and even raise the dead back to life again, just as Christ did when He walked the earth. Nothing will be impossible to us.

Christ will soon return to rule and reign as a righteous King. He will destroy all evil in the wrath of His coming. All of creation will acknowledge His greatness as He passes judgment on both men and angels. Only He can determine who receives eternal rewards and punishments. There will be no iniquity in His Kingdom. Nothing and no one who defiles God or man will ever enter in to spoil the peace and serenity of life there. All evil will be punished in the lake of fire and Satan will be banished to the bottomless pit.

We will have many blessings and rewards for our efforts in serving the Lord in His eternal redemption plan. We will rule and reign with Christ for all eternity in the Kingdom of God. We will be kings and priests, teachers and judges. The Lord Himself will instruct us in all that we must do to govern His people with fairness, justice and equality for all. We will have the heathen for our inheritance and enforce Kingdom principles of peace and unity with all men.

Divinely Commissioned

1 Corinthians 12:12 “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also [is] Christ.”

If we are zealous disciples of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we are Christ’s very own Body on the earth – His hands, feet and voice. We have important functions to perform in ushering in His Kingdom. We will pick up His ministry where He left off and evangelize the entire world with the Gospel of the Kingdom, so that all men can be set free.

We have an important role in the Lord’s eternal redemption plan. We cannot be self-serving or focused on worldliness. We have to fully sanctify ourselves, so that His very own anointing power and authority can operate in us. We will be His representatives on the earth and we should be conscientious to obey all of His directives and walk as Christ walked.

The members of the Body of Christ are called out and chosen over all people on the face of the earth. Men, women and children of all races, tongues and nations are represented. We obey the Lord and are totally sanctified, consecrated and dedicated for His service. In the days ahead, we will be instrumental in performing miraculous signs and wonders.

Healing will become second nature to us. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk. We will cast out demons of all kinds and set men free from their bondage to sin. We will even raise the dead back to life again, through the awesome power and glory of God Himself. We will overcome all evil with good and destroy demonic strongholds.

Romans 12:5 “So we, [being] many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.”

Eternal destinies mark us as the Body of Christ. We are intimately connected with one another, with Christ as our glorious Head. We walk in total singularity of purpose to take back the earth for the Kingdom of God. No devil in hell will prevail against us; we will be in complete protection to do all the Lord requires of us in the critical days ahead.

We will lead many into the Kingdom of God, as the Lord desires of us. We will be righteous examples and godly role models for all men. We will reorganize and restructure world governments, so that peace and order finally prevail on the earth. We will teach all men how to walk in love and unity and prepare them to meet their King for all eternity.

All of nature will be restored to its original beauty and balance. The climate will be stabilized, so that there are no natural catastrophes that frighten and harm mankind ever again. All plants and animals will be re-created, so that they live together in harmony with man, subject to his dominion. Nothing will ever hurt or destroy in the entire Kingdom.

Everything that we accomplish will be by the power of the Holy Spirit that operates in us and through us. We will annihilate all demonic strongholds that interfere or impede our progress and take back the entire earth for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He will return to destroy the ungodly and their ungodliness and bind Satan in the bottomless pit.

Christ will rule and reign with a rod of iron to make certain that Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality are enforced. We will reign at His side and even judge both men and angels. There will be no evil that ever enters into the Kingdom of God. We will maintain its integrity, so that our God and His people are protected from all defilement.

Matthew 10:7 “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”

Each member of the Body has an important function to perform. However, we can accomplish a great deal more if we walk in love and unity than if we are operating on our own. We desperately need each other’s help, prayers and encouragement. Each of us complements the other, so that we can present a total unified front in our efforts. Our gifts and callings are freely given to us to be used for the benefit of all of mankind.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to all the nations of the world and bring many new believers to the faith. All men will have an opportunity to hear the truth and be converted, saved and baptized, so they can enjoy Kingdom blessings for all of eternity. We will heal the sick and infirm, cast out demons of all types and even raise the dead back to life again, just as Jesus Christ Himself once did.

Nothing will interfere with heaven coming to the earth realm. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that are in our way and impede our progress. No mind blinding spirits will keep men away from their God. No hindering spirits will stop us from ministering to others in His mercy, love and compassion. The enemy is no match for Christ or for His Body. We will overcome all evil with good as the Lord intends for us to do.

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

Christ has commissioned us to complete His ministry on the earth. We have a divine destiny to fulfill in the very near future. All we must do is be willing and obedient to walk in love for God and others, and respond quickly and completely to His commands. He will equip us to operate in the miraculous realm and attract many to our faith. We will heal the sick, deliver captives from enemy oppression and even raise the dead, as Christ did. We will destroy all enemy strongholds that would impede our progress and take back the earth for the Kingdom of God, as it is planned.

We will be in total protection as we fulfill our eternal callings. The Lord will empower us to overcome all evil with good through the operation of His Holy Spirit. We will receive guidance and direction from Jesus Christ Himself and usher in His Kingdom with full power and glory manifesting. Nothing will interfere with our work or deter our efforts. All of heaven stands ready to support the Body of Christ. We will have legions of ministering and avenging angels to back us up, so that we can fight the good fight of faith and bring heaven to the earth.

Our behavior must be above and beyond reproach in the days ahead, as we assume our duties for the Lord’s eternal redemption plan. We will be purged and sanctified, so that we can be fitting vessels for His use. We will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and conviction, so that the full end-time harvest of souls is brought in. All men will have an opportunity to be converted to our faith and be baptized in Christ’s name. It is the Lord’s desire that no man perish for lack of knowledge. He wants all mankind to know Him and worship Him as their Creator and Father.

Many Are Called

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

We have undergone a strict selection process in our lives. Many are called to the faith, but few are strengthened in the power of it. The Lord knew from the foundation of the world, who would respond to His call and be obedient to His purpose. There are some who have walked with the Lord for many years, yet are unwilling to do everything that He asks of us at this time. They may be reluctant to consecrate themselves for fulfilling God’s plans, as He has ordained them to do.

While they may indeed love the Lord and desire to serve Him, they are not willing to totally submit to His purpose for their lives. He desires that we function as Jesus Christ Himself did when He walked the earth. We cannot have false humility at this point or shirk our sacred responsibilities. Too much is at stake for us to draw back now. We must be diligent to fulfill our callings. The Gospel must be preached to every nation of the world in all its power. The entire earth needs to be renewed, so that it is peaceful and orderly.

This is uncharted territory that we will walk in, and some are fearful of the repercussions. They may be timid, wary and afraid of failing. They could be carnally minded rather than focused on the Lord’s eternal redemption plan. Only the spiritually strong will embrace their divine destinies in the days ahead. There can be no room for fear, doubt or unbelief to influence us in any way. We have to walk in faith and confidence that the Lord will fully equip us to be successful in all that we do.

Luke 12:47-48 “And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few [stripes]. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”

If we are in darkness and ignorant of the truth, we are mercifully spared punishment for our sins of commission and omission. However, once we have been instructed in sound doctrine and given an opportunity to be saved from our sins, we are accountable for the knowledge that we have and responsible to walk in the light of it. None of us in the Church of Jesus Christ has an excuse for ignorance. We were bought with a dear price, and we are aware of our obligations.

It would be a travesty of justice for us to simply sit back and wait for others to usher in the Kingdom of God, when we will all benefit from it. Each of us has an important role that will be instrumental in taking back the earth from Satan, the enemy of our souls. We must proactively seek the Lord and obey all of His directives. He will have us perform mighty feats on His behalf in the critical days to come, and we must be ready, willing and able to do all that He asks of us.

We should be very careful that we do not ignore our divine calling. To those whom much is given, much is also expected. We are privileged to be chosen by God for His service. Who among us can ignore His call after all that He has done for us? Anything the Lord asks us to do, He fully equips us to handle. His anointing power is available to all believers, not just a select few. All that we must do is make ourselves available to Him and He will prepare us to be totally successful.

Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”

Whatever the Lord asks of us in the days ahead, we will be eminently qualified to handle. He will empower us to accomplish everything that He assigns us. We should trust in Him and lean not to our own understanding. Our God has everything under control and He will never ask more of us than we are capable of doing. We must consecrate ourselves and He will work through us to impact the entire earth. We have no excuse for refusing to assist Him in His plans.

There is something that each of us can do to usher in the Kingdom of God. If we are not called to the Body of Christ, we are still members of His Church. We should be in strong intercession for our brothers and sisters and support them in their evangelistic efforts wherever possible. We are each expected to be godly role models for unbelievers and focused on sanctification rather than worldliness. We should also petition the Lord to usher in His Kingdom as quickly as possible.

If we all join forces and pray in earnest for heaven’s way of doing things to come to the earth, the Lord will indeed hear us and promptly answer our prayers. He is zealous for the plight of His people and He will not permit us to be oppressed forever. He will empower us to overcome all evil with good, and take back the entire world as we are destined to do. We must cooperate with Him and with one another, so that the Kingdom of God can be ushered in as He has purposed it.

Hebrews 10:38 “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”

Rebellion is a serious sin, and to deny the Lord when He calls on us to serve Him is inexcusable. We should always be fully prepared to do the will of the Father. Much is at stake in the earth right now. People are shrouded in darkness and deception and they need us to show them the way to the light. We have serious responsibilities to God and to others. We cannot refuse the Lord in such dire circumstances. If we do so, we will be guilty of sin and remiss in our Christian duties.

Jesus Christ will empower us to do His work in the days ahead. We will not lack for any good thing. If we are sanctified and consecrated to the Lord’s eternal plan and purpose for us, we will receive a full impartation of the very same anointing power and authority that Christ walked in during His ministry. We will take back the earth and everything in it for our Lord and Savior. No fear, doubt or unbelief should ever plague us; we must walk by faith, not by our natural sight.

Many who think they are in good standing will be on the outside looking in, as we usher heaven into the earth. Not everyone who wishes to do so will actually enter the Kingdom of God, but only those who do the will of the Father. Jesus Christ will determine who is eligible to enter into His Kingdom and enjoy eternal blessings and rewards for divine service. Only He is totally righteous and capable of judging all men unequivocally. His judgment will be total, final and indisputable.

The righteous will enter into the Kingdom of God and be glorified with Christ Himself. We will be appointed kings and priests and rule and reign over all the nations of the world. We will be teachers and judges of all men and even angels. However, the rebellious will be cast into the eternal lake of fire. The Lord will permit no defilement or evil in the Kingdom. If we have failed to do the will of our Heavenly Father, we will be excluded from receiving eternal rewards.

Divine Callings And Eternal Destinies

1Corinthians 7:20 “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.”

There are many unique gifts and callings that the Lord has imparted to His people. Some are apostles, prophets, evangelists, healers, pastors or teachers. Others are workers of miracles, and some share revelation with the entire body of believers. Still others are intercessors and prayer warriors. Some individuals have a special helps ministry that supports others in need.

We all have important roles in these last days. We must be fully prepared to do whatever the Lord asks of us. He has a detailed plan and purpose that we must help to fulfill. We should be fully surrendered to the Lord, walk in love and unity and be quick to obey when we are assigned anything in His service. Although it might appear that our role is inconsequential, each of us has an important function.

Some are called to be the Bride of Christ and spend their lives in prayer, worship, meditation and intercession. Their goal is to be sanctified and purified, so that they can be prepared to meet Christ as their Bridegroom. Others take a more active role and are called to the Body of Christ, in service to the Lord as His end-times army that will usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

Exodus 40:15 “And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.”

Whatever our role is in the Lord’s long-term redemption plan, we can be certain He will prepare and equip us to do all that we are called to do. If we are consecrated and dedicated to His purpose, He will imbue us with Christ’s own anointing power and authority. We will work miraculous signs and wonders to draw many to our faith and preach the Gospel to all the world. No man, woman or child will perish for lack of knowledge or from hearing the truth.

While many of us have known our gifts and callings for many years, there are some that the Lord has yet to call into His service. He can and will use any sanctified vessel for His purpose. Our talents and experience will have no bearing on our success. He will use men, women and even children in His eternal redemption plan, as long as they consecrate themselves for His service.

The Holy Spirit administers gifts and callings to God’s people at will. We should be flexible and offer our assistance in any capacity that the Lord deems necessary. We can accomplish nothing in our own strength, but He will equip us for even the miraculous. We will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God, by the power and authority of the Holy Spirit of God that works through us. We will prepare the minds and hearts of all men to receive their King.

We are kings and priests of God – in training for future reigning. We must take our duties seriously and seek the Lord for His guidance and direction in all that we say and do. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory one day soon and rule with Him. We will judge both men and angels and enforce the Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality for all.

Romans 11:29 “For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance.”

The Lord is no respecter of persons; He loves each of us with a deep and unconditional love. His gifts and callings are granted to us permanently, regardless of our righteousness at any given time. We cannot do anything to lose or forfeit them. While sin may prevent us from serving the Lord for a time, continued righteousness will guarantee our usefulness to Him and make us eligible to enter into His Kingdom.

We should strive for total obedience to the Lord’s direction and remain sin-free at all times. However, we often miss the mark and fall short of the glory of God. When we sin in any way, we can always repent, renounce our sin and have our righteousness restored. The Lord will reinstate all of our blessings as before and we can continue serving Him at peak performance, as we are destined to do as the sons of God.

Our primary responsibility at this juncture is to sanctify and prepare ourselves for divine service. We cannot let anything or anyone interfere with our eternal calling. Much depends upon our willingness and obedience to serve the Lord in any capacity that He deems worthwhile. He knows the end from the beginning, yet expects us to be cooperative with Him and with one another so we can accomplish our goal.

Saints Of God

Psalm 37:18 “The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.”

We have been called from the very foundation of the world to be of service to the Lord for such a time as this. We must usher the Kingdom of God into the earth realm, as it has been ordained. We will have an eternal reward for our efforts. No man will take our inheritance from us.

The Kingdom of God is our special birthright as the sons and daughters of God. The Lord will bless His people that have served Him faithfully in these last days. He will boast of us to all creation and Jesus Christ will share His very own honor and glory with us for all of eternity.

Our God will avenge all wrongs that were done to us, and give us joy and praise for our former sorrow and shame. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and destroy all our adversaries. There will be safety and security, peace and prosperity for all who dwell in the Lord’s presence.

The benefits and eternal rewards that we will receive in the Kingdom of God will far outweigh the suffering and tribulation that we have undergone for our faith. We will be blessed beyond our wildest imagination. The Lord has a bountiful inheritance stored up for His saints.

We will have health and longevity, joy and gladness all the days of our lives. We will dwell in the very presence of our awesome God and He will totally recompense us for our faithfulness to Him. All the vast resources of the universe will be at our disposal and freely shared among us.

Colossians 1:12 “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:”

There are eternal rewards and blessings reserved for those who do the will of the Father and fulfill His eternal redemption plan. We should give thanks and praise to God for permitting us to partner with Him in the days ahead. It is a distinct honor to be able to humbly serve His people. We are saints in light and we walk in the miraculous realm.

The Body of Christ is unique and privileged. We were created for such a time as this. If we do not embrace our divine destinies, there is valuable work that will remain undone. We cannot afford to have our own ambitions or worldly aspirations; there is an eternal calling on our lives. We should be wholly consecrated and dedicated to the Lord’s plan and purpose for mankind.

We will be Christ’s hands and voice on the earth and pick up where He left off in His very own ministry. We will be endued with divine power and authority to preach the Gospel, heal the sick and raise the dead. We will destroy demonic strongholds and set men free from bondage. Many will come to know the truth and be baptized in our faith.

The Lord will ask His people to accomplish tasks that have eternal ramifications in the days ahead. Heaven’s way of doing things will be ushered in on the earth, so that the Kingdom of God can come in full power and glory, as it is planned. We are sacred vessels for the Lord’s use and we should be totally focused on hearing His voice and obediently responding to His direction.

Ephesians 1:18 “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,”

We have eternal destinies and the future of all mankind is at stake. We have to be functioning at our best, and that requires us to be totally and completed sold out to the things of God. We must continuously examine our consciences and subdue our flesh and our souls. We should be walking in the Holy Spirit of God at all times and have a genuine love for God and others.

While we cannot be so heavenly minded that we are of no earthly use in the days ahead, we will still have to strive for holiness and perfection, even as the Lord is holy and perfect. Our spiritual maturity should be complete as we usher in the Kingdom. We should be living testimonies to the power and glory of God at work in our own lives before we can attract others to our faith.

Our God will reveal the details of our specific destinies and callings. He will share that information with us, so that we are fully prepared to walk as Christ walked on the earth. We will be enabled to do all that is required of us. The Lord will impart His anointing power and authority to us to function at optimal capacity. We will operate in the supernatural and glorify Him.

Matthew 25:34 “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:”

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God all over the world, so that men might know the truth and be set free to enjoy eternal life. We will heal the sick and infirm and cast out demons of all kinds. We will even raise the dead back to life again, as Christ Himself did when He walked the earth. Men will be set free of their afflictions and addictions that have oppressed them.

All world governments will be restructured to adhere to Kingdom principles of peace, righteousness and justice for all men. All of creation will be restored to its original beauty and balance, so that man has control over the climate and dominion restored over all of the plants and animals once again. The entire earth will be prepared for the coming of the Kingdom of God.

The Body of Christ will destroy all demonic strongholds that interfere with our efforts. We will prepare God’s people, so that the Kingdom of God can be quickly ushered into the earth realm. We will take back the entire world for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and deliver it to Him at His coming. Christ will soon return to destroy all that is evil and banish it for all time.

The Kingdom of God will be our inheritance for righteousness. The Lord will supply all our needs in abundance. We will have peace and prosperity, joy and gladness, safety and security for all of eternity. There will be no poverty or lack, no pain and suffering, no war and unrest of any kind. We will dwell in love and unity with our brothers in the very presence of our God.

Eternal Rewards

1Corinthians 3:14 “If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.”

We were created for divine destinies that will play out in the days ahead. We will spread the good news of the Kingdom of God and work miracles, signs and wonders in the Lord’s name. We will take back the entire earth and everything in it, so that good overcomes evil in every respect. We will minister to all mankind and positively impact lives for all of eternity.

There are many rewards stored up for the righteous saints that serve the Lord in ushering in His Kingdom. He will not soon forget our faithful service to Him or His people. In addition to the blessings that all will receive, we will be glorified with Christ and share in His honor. We will even rule and reign with Him as kings and priests of God over all the nations of the world.

We will judge both men and angels and have the heathen for our inheritance. We will be capable teachers, fair and just governors of God’s people, and be held in high esteem by all men. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and fellowship with us on an intimate basis, as He has promised. All men will eventually know the Lord and worship Him in Spirit and in truth.

Luke 18:7 “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?”

The people of God have called out to Him in frustration and desperation over the years. We have been shamed and ridiculed for our faith, persecuted and condemned by men in the world. We have been oppressed by the enemy and depressed in spirit, but God has heard all our cries.

We will never suffer for doing good or be shamed and ridiculed ever again; the Lord will champion our cause and justify His people. He will deliver us from evil and restore everything that has been taken from us over the years. He will meet all our needs according to His riches in glory.

Peace and prosperity, safety and security, love and unity will all prevail in the Kingdom of God. No evil will ever defile or harm us in any way. Our bodies will be changed into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever free of disease and death in the presence of almighty God Himself.

He will vindicate us before men and angels and take vengeance on all our enemies, as He has promised us. They will be banished to the eternal lake of fire. We will live totally free of fear and molestation; nothing will ever disturb the joy and gladness that we experience in the Kingdom of God.

Christ will rule with a rod of iron to make certain that nothing defiling ever enters into His everlasting Kingdom. He will defend His people for all of eternity and make certain that we are protected at all times. We will have freedom, safety and security in His presence as He has promised us.

Deuteronomy 12:9 “For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which the LORD your God giveth you.”

We have not yet arrived, but we are well on our way. We will do everything that it takes to usher in God’s Kingdom. The Lord will direct all of our efforts and empower us to work miracles, signs and wonders to attract all men to our faith and show His love, mercy and compassion for them. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom, so that all men can eventually hear the truth.

Christ will soon return to destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness and judge both the living and the dead. Heaven will be ushered in on the earth in the fullness of time, as planned. Our eternal rewards await us in the Kingdom of God. We will not have to die and go to heaven to be compensated for our efforts on the Lord’s behalf. He will be joining us right here on the earth.

The Lord has promised that we will have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth. He will appoint us as kings and priests. We will rule and reign for all eternity with Christ Himself. Very soon now, we will no longer have to teach men about our God. We will all know Him from the least to the greatest of us; His laws will be written in our minds and hearts.

The Kingdom of God will be our eternal legacy for righteousness and faithful service to the Lord in implementing His eternal redemption plan. All men will look up to us and we will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. The Lord will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters. We will dwell in love with one another, as He planned from the beginning of time.

Heirs To The Promises

Hebrews 6:12 “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”

We have great and wonderful promises in store for us as the children of God. Very soon now, the Lord will give the command to usher in His Kingdom to the earth and we must be fully prepared to assist Him. The Gospel of the Kingdom must be preached to all men, women and children throughout the world. It is God’s earnest desire that all human beings be reconciled to Him as their heavenly Father.

We will heal mankind of all their sicknesses and infirmities. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk – just as they did when Christ was among us. We will cast out demons in His name and even raise the dead back to life again. We will overcome all evil with good as we fulfill our divine destinies. There will be nothing that is impossible to the Body of Christ in the days to come.

We will fight the good fight of faith and take total dominion over all matters on the earth. All world governments and their economies will line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all men. We will take authority over all of creation, so that plants and animals are in harmony with one another and subject to mankind. There will be nothing that hurts or destroys in God’s entire Kingdom.

Psalm 2:8 “Ask of me, and I shall give [thee] the heathen [for] thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth [for] thy possession.”

The Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached to all the world, and we will be given the heathen as our inheritance in the days to come. Every knee shall bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord.” All men will know God, from the least to the greatest of us. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts. We will celebrate all of the Lord’s perpetual feast days and give Him all the praise and thanks that He rightly deserves.

Christ will share His very own honor and glory with His Body and His Bride. He will boast of us to all creation and we will rule and reign at His side as kings and priests of God. We will be heroes among men, instead of being scorned, ostracized and condemned for our faith. The Lord will take vengeance on all those who have hurt or oppressed us, and restore everything that we have lost while we were in faithful service to Him and His people.

We will continue to be extremely busy in the Kingdom of God once Christ returns to us. Many people will dwell there, and only godly principles of peace, order and stability will prevail. We will be judges, rulers and overseers to make certain that justice, fairness and equality are enforced for all residents. We will help organize the Kingdom government and administer its policies, so that nothing evil or defiling ever contaminates our life there.

Isaiah 65:22-24 “They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree [are] the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”

The darkness, deception and destruction all around us will eventually be dispelled and all evil will be destroyed. The world will not end, as some seem to believe. Neither will God’s people be raptured out of here. Heaven itself will be ushered into the earth, as we were promised. Very soon now, God’s way of doing things will replace the Babylonian world system that has miserably failed us. Men will be set free to enjoy eternal life and all of its many blessings for us.

Our heavenly Father has a marvelous plan in mind for our eternal redemption and future well-being. Our bodies will be transformed into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever free of disease and death. We will dwell in His loving presence in the Kingdom of God. He will share all the vast resources of the universe with us. The Lord will anticipate all our needs even before we ask Him. He will make certain that we are healthy, happy and prosperous for all eternity.

He will bind up all our wounds and give us joy for our former pain and sorrow. He will be merciful and compassionate to all that we have suffered over the years. We will no longer be scorned or ridiculed for our faith. The Lord will take vengeance on all our enemies and protect us from all evil and defilement. We will dwell with both men and angels. We will experience love, peace and unity in all of our relationships and fellowship intimately with our God, as He desires.

The Kingdom of God will be our eternal inheritance for righteousness. But only those who are loving, humble and sincere will enjoy its many benefits. Our offspring will be blessed for all generations to come. We will build wonderful homes for our large families that no one can ever take from us. We will receive a just recompense for all that we have lost or had stolen over the years. The people of God will no longer labor in vain; we will long enjoy the work of our hands.

Chapter 3 – Covenant Of Promises

 

2Corinthians 1:20 “For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”

If we are born again and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we have received the gift of eternal life. We become heirs to even better promises than our forefathers had. They were lost in their sins and made to abide by the terms of the law. Through Christ’s atoning sacrifice on our behalf, we are washed clean in His Blood and we are now deemed totally righteous.

There is no longer a separation of any kind between God and man. We have been released from the penalty of sin, which is death. We are His very own sons and daughters if we believe in the doctrine of salvation. We are actually seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. We have access to the throne room at any time. We can make our needs known and all of our petitions will be answered.

When the Lord sees us, He sees Jesus in all His righteousness. There is no good thing that He will withhold from His people. We will have every need met in abundance now, and we share in the promise of future blessings in His everlasting Kingdom. The Lord will lead us and guide us into all truth by the power of His Holy Spirit and equip us, so that we succeed in all we do.

Very soon now, we will take back the earth and everything in it for the Kingdom of God. We will destroy all demonic strongholds and establish peace, order and stability in this world, as we are destined to do. Nothing will be impossible to us. The Lord will assign legions of ministering angels to support us in all our efforts. We will win countless souls to the Gospel of the Kingdom and set men free from bondage to sin.

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.”

We are blessed to be a blessing to others. We will turn the hearts of men back to their God and call in the full end-time harvest of souls that is necessary before heaven comes to the earth. We have been called to lives of glory and virtue, but we cannot be puffed up with pride and arrogance. We are elect and chosen of God for divine destinies in humble service to Him and others.

However, we can never take our righteousness for granted. We must earnestly follow all of the Lord’s commandments to us and walk in love, as we have been taught. We should make personal sanctification our continuous goal and strive for holiness and perfection in our daily lives. We can accomplish all things through Jesus Christ Himself, if we imitate His laid down life.

We should walk as He walked and be perfectly obedient to do anything that the Lord asks of us. We have divine destinies that will be fulfilled in the days ahead, and we will glorify God in all that we think, say and do to usher in His eternal Kingdom. We have the promise of future rewards and perpetual blessings for our loyalty, devotion and faithfulness to serve Him and His people.

The Lord will appoint us as kings and priests and we will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We will rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. He will give us the heathen for our inheritance and we will enforce Kingdom principles of peace and order, fairness and justice for all mankind. Our names will soon become a praise on the earth forever.

Redeemed From The Curse

Galatians 3:13 “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree:”

We have been set free from the penalty of sin, which is death. We can expect to receive eternal life and all of its benefits. Our sinfulness is no longer an issue with God. We have right standing with Him restored to us through the merits of His Son, Jesus Christ. We are no longer bound by the curse of the law; we enjoy real Christian liberty. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places, at the right hand of God Himself. We can approach the throne of grace with every need and it will be met abundantly.

If we sin after having received our salvation through the atonement of Jesus Christ, we must be quick to repent and renounce our sin and the Lord will restore us to right standing with Him again. He will even blot our sins from His memory and reinstate all the blessings of righteousness for us. Deliberate disobedience will put us back under the curse, however. Our goal should be to remain sin free at all times, so that we can enjoy all the promises of God on a continuous basis and maintain our covenant with Him.

We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity in the Lord’s everlasting Kingdom. He will actually dwell with us and take an active role in our lives as our Father. He will supply all that we need to be healthy and happy for all of eternity. We will be honored and glorified with Jesus Christ Himself and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. The Lord will boast of us as His very own sons and daughters and appoint us as kings and priests of His people.

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

While we were once lost in our sins and condemned to death as a penalty for them, we now have eternal life through the merits of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf. We are no longer in spiritual darkness; we are restored to righteousness with God for all time. When the Lord sees us, He sees us cleansed of all iniquity and He views us as His very own sons and daughters.

We have rights and privileges that we can only imagine. The Lord will reveal these to us as we progress in our Christian walk. We have the promise of eternal life in His Kingdom and He will supply all of our needs in abundance. There is no good thing – temporal or spiritual – that the Lord will withhold from His people. He wants to be our total source for all that we require.

The Lord has great and wonderful plans for us. We have eternal destinies to fulfill in ushering in the Kingdom of God. If we sanctify ourselves of all our carnality and selfish soul ambitions, He will imbue us with His very own anointing power and authority to take back dominion over the entire earth. We will lead many others to righteousness, as we preach the Gospel message.

Nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days to come. We have passed from death to life and we now have supernatural capabilities to serve God and others. We will heal all the sick and infirm. We will cast out demons and set men free from their bondage to sin. We will even raise the dead back to life again, so that they can also enjoy Kingdom blessings for all of eternity.

The Messianic Covenant

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

Since we are born again and accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we now have an everlasting Messianic covenant with God. Through our faith in Jesus Christ, we have the redemption from our sins and the promise of eternal life. We are no longer under the curse, nor are we subject to the penalty for sin, which is death. Our faith in Christ will give us power over our sin, so we enjoy true Christian liberty.

When the Father sees us, He sees us as being totally righteous in Jesus and joint-heirs to all His promises. We will be empowered to do everything that Christ did on the earth. The Lord will reveal our destinies to us, as we progress in our spiritual journey. If we put God first in all things, walk in love and are obedient, we will accomplish great things on His behalf and be entitled to many blessings as a result.

He will give us guidance and direction, so that we can be successful in all that we do. We will receive wisdom, knowledge, revelation and understanding in the deeper things of God. He will prosper us in all our ways and keep us in good health. We will receive praise and honor for our former shame. He will vindicate all wrongs done to us and give us a just recompense for all that we have had stolen from us.

Isaiah 43:25 “I, [even] I, [am] he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.”

Our righteousness with God is through our faith in Christ and His atonement on our behalf. We have been washed clean with His Blood and our right standing with God is unquestionable. Christ took on all the sins of mankind, as if they were His very own. His victory over sin, death and the grave assures us that we have eternal life. We no longer have death as a penalty for sin. We have the blessings of righteousness as long as we follow all of the Lord’s commandments.

We are joint-heirs with Christ to all the promises of God. Our iniquity has been removed far from us. The Lord has blotted it from His memory. If we do sin and fall short of God’s glory, we must repent from the heart and renounce our sin. When we do so, the Lord will always forgive us and reinstate our blessings. It is His greatest desire to fellowship with us and provide all our needs. However, we must always strive to remain sin free, so that our righteousness is never an issue.

The Lord has elevated us to positions of intimacy with Him. We are His very own adopted sons and daughters. We have access to Him at any time and for any reason. We can approach the throne of grace with total confidence that the Lord is ready and willing to hear from us. He will never leave us empty-handed and He always answers every prayer. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us and to be with us until the end of this world, as we know it.

Ephesians 2:6 “And hath raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus:”

We are sons and daughters of the living God. We are seated with Christ Himself in heavenly places. We are able to seek the Lord in intimate relationship now. Our right standing with Him has been restored for all time. Whenever we have a need or concern, He wants to hear from us. It is His greatest desire to have us depend on Him for every good thing in our lives.

It is not necessary for us to beg or grovel to have our needs met. The Lord is more than willing to accommodate us. We have rights and privileges as the children of God and we can approach the throne of grace with boldness and confidence. Whatever we ask in Christ’s name will be given to us. If any two of us agree in prayer, we will have what we seek from the Lord.

Our God does not want us to struggle or lack for anything. He will provide for us in abundance and empower us to be successful in all we do. We should ask Him for His guidance and direction, and He will lead us by the power of the Holy Spirit. When we pray and ask the Lord to help us, we must believe that we receive and wait patiently for the manifestation.

Joel 2:26 “And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.”

We have favor with God because of our righteousness in Christ and we can expect to receive all that we need to be healthy, happy and prosperous. He will never leave us ashamed, empty-handed or ignore our requests. He promises never to leave us or forsake us, but to be with us always. We have assurance of provision for all of our needs, whatever they may be.

The Lord will withhold no good thing from His people. He will meet all of our temporal and spiritual requirements. We will not have to beg Him for His benevolence; it will always be available to us, no matter what the circumstances. He has the vast resources of the universe at His disposal, and He will not be stingy in releasing eternal blessings and rewards.

We are actually forbidden to have cares in this world or in the next. The Lord will meet all of our needs according to His riches in glory. We will have good health and prosperity, sound minds and real spiritual power. He will never abandon us in our troubles or allow us to be destroyed by the enemy, if we are righteous and walking in love, as we have been taught.

The people of God will be abundantly blessed in the days to come. We will receive brand new, resurrection bodies that are impervious to disease and death. We will dwell in the very presence of almighty God for all of eternity, and enjoy our lives instead of struggling to get by. He will take vengeance on all our enemies and vindicate all wrongs done to us.

We will be honored and praised for our faithful service to the Lord. Our children and our children’s children will all receive an eternal legacy because of our obedience. They will be multiplied on the earth and possess the gates of their enemies. No evil or defilement will come anywhere near us. We will have safety and security, joy and freedom in the Kingdom forever.

The Abrahamic Covenant

Acts 3:25-26 “Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.”

When we made Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, we inherited a full covenant of promises through our faith in Him. This included the eternal covenant that the Lord had made with Abraham as our ancestral father. Christ Himself was born a man into that very same bloodline.

As believers in Christ, we are also Abraham’s seed. The Lord promised to multiply Abraham and his descendants and bless them for all of eternity, because he believed God and trusted Him in all things. Eternal blessings are our now our birthright through that same covenant.

The Abrahamic covenant differs from that which was made with the ancient Israelites through Moses. While the Mosaic covenant was dependent upon keeping all the requirements of the law, the Abrahamic covenant is unconditional and promises eternal blessings just for our faith.

Our righteousness is determined through our faith in Christ, and Him alone. We are not obligated to do anything in our own strength to receive all the covenant blessings. We will inherit all the prosperity promised to Abraham, and our descendants will be multiplied on the earth.

We are righteous by the Blood of Jesus and in good standing with the Father, just as Abraham was. We are blameless before Him and entitled to all of the covenant promises and blessings for righteousness. We will be rewarded for all eternity because of our faith in Christ’s sacrifice for us.

Galatians 3:7-9 “Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, [saying], In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.”

Our offspring will eventually cover the entire earth and take total authority over it, as the Lord promised Abraham that they would. We will have all our needs met according to the Lord’s very own riches in glory. He will prosper us in all our ways so we can be a blessing to others.

The Abrahamic covenant is our guarantee of prosperity and dominion over every nation of the world. We will inherit its blessings through our faith in Jesus Christ, and by that alone. The Lord always honors His covenant promises and He will continue to bless us, just as He did Abraham.

We are highly favored of God, and the impossible will become possible for us in the days to come. If our faith is strong like that of Abraham and does not waver, we will have all the riches of the universe released to us for our benefit. We will walk in the supernatural realm and even see God.

The Lord delights in being in covenant with His people. His greatest desire is to be intimate with us for all of eternity. He will supply all that we need to be healthy, happy and prosperous all the days of our lives. We are a people that God has chosen for Himself and He will be glorified in us.

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

The Lord has an eternal covenant with His people. We are heirs to wonderful promises that He made to Abraham, our father. Since we have believed in His Son, Jesus Christ, we are also Abraham’s seed. Our names will be a praise on the earth for all of eternity. We will be blessed and multiplied from generation to generation and our descendants will rule on the earth for all time.

We will take dominion over all matters in this world and in the Kingdom to come. We will be prospered in all that we do and inherit the Kingdom of God as our legacy for our righteousness. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory and have an intimate relationship with God as our Father. We will experience only peace and prosperity, joy and freedom forever more.

The Lord will take vengeance on all our enemies and protect us from all harm. We will have safety and security in His very presence and share in all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. The Lord will anticipate all that we need and provide for us in abundance. We will live long and strong and enjoy our lives. There will be nothing that we lack in the Kingdom of God.

The Covenant Of Peace

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

The Lord has always desired a covenant of peace with His people. Until Jesus Christ came to the earth and delivered us from our sins, that covenant was only short-lived and intermittent at best. As His chosen people of old sinned and strayed far from Him, the Lord was compelled to break His covenant with them at times. Although it grieved Him sorely, He withdrew His blessings from their lives because they were continuously stubborn, rebellious and unrepentant.

Now that we have been redeemed from our transgression, the Lord is able to re-establish His covenant with His people. We have peace with God as long as we remain sin free and righteous. If we do miss the mark and sin again, we must repent and renounce all our sins. The Lord will be quick to forgive us and reinstate our covenant blessings as before. He will provide all our needs in abundance and be a God to us, as He has desired from the very foundation of the world.

The Lord plans to actually take up residence with us in the Kingdom of God when it comes to the earth. His greatest desire is to fellowship intimately with His people and take an active role in their lives. He will do that one day in the very near future. The Lord will anticipate our needs and provide all that we require to be healthy and happy for all time. He will be the focus of our lives instead of an afterthought, and we will give Him all the praise and thanks He deserves.

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

Although we have been redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ Himself, we never have permission to deliberately sin and be rebellious. We know the truth; we were delivered from the curse of sin and death, since Christ was made a curse for us. His death and resurrection from the dead ensure us eternal life and blessings for righteousness.

We should continuously strive for godliness, and seek to do the Lord’s will in all things. We must keep the commandment of love and aspire to spiritual maturity. We should walk as Christ Himself walked on the earth and do good to all men. We must treat others, as we ourselves would like to be treated, and walk in peace and unity at all times.

In the natural, this is impossible for us to attain. However, we can do all things through Christ and by the operation of the Holy Spirit at work in us. Our minds can be totally renewed and our behavior transformed, so that we become spiritually mature. If we pattern ourselves after Christ Himself, we will eventually become holy and perfect.

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

The Lord has vowed that He will never leave us or forsake us, no matter how bleak things become on the earth. He has made an everlasting covenant of peace with us that will never be broken. We can rely on Him for divine provision and protection in the days to come that span all of eternity. He will never lie or renege on all that He has promised to us.

We are a covenant people; we have rights and privileges. However, we cannot take advantage of our position and ever transgress any of God’s laws. We must walk in total love and righteousness at all times. We should also partner with the Lord and present our bodies as living sacrifices for use in implementing His eternal redemption plan for all mankind.

He will imbue us with power on high to take dominion over the entire earth. There will be peace and stability in this world as a result of our willingness and obedience to serve God and His people. We will lead many to the Lord through our evangelical efforts and bring in the full end-time harvest of souls that is necessary before heaven comes to the earth.

Very soon now the Lord will have us usher in the Kingdom of God, as we are destined to do. Heaven’s way of doing things will finally take precedence over our own. We will no longer lead defeated lives or have the enemy oppress us in any way. We will overcome all evil and replace it with good. Righteousness and justice will prevail throughout the world.

We will experience peace and prosperity instead of conflict and lack. There will be no more war and violence, no greed or exploitation. Christ will take vengeance on all of our enemies and banish Satan and all his minions to the bottomless pit. Nothing will ever harm, threat or frighten us ever again. There will be safety and security for all of God’s people.

The Kingdom Covenant

Hebrews 8:10-12 “For this [is] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”

We not only have received the promise of eternal life through our faith in Jesus Christ, but we also have the assurance of entering the Kingdom of God in the near future. There is a time coming when all men will finally know the Lord – from the least to the greatest of us. His law will be written in our minds and hearts. There will no longer be a separation between God and man ever again.

The Lord will be merciful to us and forget all of our past iniquity. He will blot our sins from His memory and treat us as He would Jesus Christ Himself. We will be showered with eternal blessings and be given all that we need in abundance. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and vindicate us before men and angels, as we rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

Our decaying flesh will be supernaturally changed into glorious, resurrection bodies that live forever free of disease and decay. We will be reunited with our loved ones who are long gone, as the dead in Christ are raised back to life once again. We will have a household salvation, and many of our friends and relatives who have been unrepentant will finally come to know and love the Lord.

Deuteronomy 32:43 “Rejoice, O ye nations, [with] his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, [and] to his people.”

There will finally be peace on the earth; all evil will be far removed from God’s Kingdom. The Lord will take vengeance on our enemies and punish them. We will have all our needs met in abundance, even before we ask. We will abide by the Lord’s moral absolutes and be totally righteous for all time. We will put God first in our lives, and walk in love, peace and unity with all mankind.

The Lord will even take up residence with His people and fellowship intimately with us for all eternity, as He has always desired. He will blot our iniquity from His memory and be merciful and compassionate to us. All men will know God and give Him the honor that He deserves. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth. He will be our God and we will be His people called by His holy name.

We will have joy and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will restore everything that was taken from us. Men will dwell together as brothers and be righteous and obedient. We will long enjoy the work of our hands and build beautiful homes for our large families. We will see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come.

Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”

The Lord is faithful to keep His promises to His people. He has established an eternal covenant with us that cannot be shaken or moved. Everything that He has said that He will do for us will indeed come to pass in the Kingdom of God one day soon. We need only be patient and wait to see all that heaven has stored up for us released for our eternal benefit. We will not be ashamed for our faith in God; we will receive all the fruits of it.

In return for our devoted obedience to the Lord, we will enjoy all the Kingdom blessings of joy and gladness, love and unity, health and longevity. We will also share in Christ’s very own honor and glory for all time. We will rule and reign with Him as kings and priests of God. All men will look up to us and we will have praise for our former shame, scorn and derision. The Lord will be sure to compensate us for our continuous faithfulness to Him.

Very soon now, Christ will return to destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness. He will root out all evil from the face of the earth and bind Satan in the abyss, as it is written. He will take vengeance on all the enemies of His people and rule with a rod of iron in His Kingdom. All evil will be banished from our midst to the eternal lake of fire. The Lord will make certain that there is only safety and security, peace and prosperity for His people.

Our Covenant Responsibilities

Deuteronomy 13:4 “Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.”

The Lord wants to bless us and enjoy intimate fellowship with us for all of eternity. However, we can never transgress His laws or take our salvation for granted. We were bought with a dear price – the Blood of His only Son, Jesus Christ. We must guard our righteousness and walk in love, as we were taught.

If we do, we will never even think to violate any of the Ten Commandments, as that would be a step out of love for us. We should reverence the Lord in all that we do and regard others, as we do ourselves. In addition, we must lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters and serve them as the Lord directs us.

There are many who are lost in sin and deception, and we must set them free by sharing our faith. We must preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so that they can receive eternal life. We will bring in the full end-time harvest of souls that is necessary, so that the Kingdom of God can soon be ushered into the earth realm.

It is the Lord’s deepest desire that all men know the truth and walk in the power of it. We must obey Him and cling to all of His promises. We must sanctify ourselves of all known sin and cleanse ourselves of all defilement. We will soon dwell with Him in His Kingdom and no evil can ever enter into His presence.

James 1:25 “But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth [therein], he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”

We enjoy true Christian liberty through our faith; we have been redeemed from the curse of the law and set free from the penalty of death for all time. We can expect eternal life and all of its blessings. However, that does not give us the right to rest on our laurels; we have important, divine destinies to fulfill in the critical days that lie ahead.

The Lord will work in us to perfect us, and He will work through us to bless others. We will spread the Gospel of peace to all men and lead them to the truth. Many will be baptized in our faith as a direct result of our evangelistic efforts. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead, as the Kingdom of God is ushered in to the earth.

We will restructure all world governments, so that they line up with Kingdom principles of righteousness and justice. We will bring peace and order to the earth, as the Lord desires. All of nature is waiting for us to take our place as the sons of God. We will regulate the climate, and all the plants and animals will be in harmony with one another.

If we have served the Lord, He will boast of us to all creation and we will rule and reign with Christ as kings and priests. The Lord will give us the heathen for our inheritance. All men will finally look up to us and we will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We will help to judge both men and angels and be just rulers and able teachers.

Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

We are disciples of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ – His very own hands, feet and voice on the earth. We are new creatures in Him and He now dwells in us. We are to take up His ministry where He left off and bring heaven’s way of doing things to the earth, as the Lord has planned. We will preach the Gospel and work miracles, signs and wonders in His name.

The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk. Men everywhere will be delivered from demonic oppression and afflictions of all kinds. We will cure terminal diseases and even raise the dead back to life again, as Christ once did. Nothing will be impossible to us if we serve the Lord diligently, as we should, in the critical days to come.

We will become proficient in good works and glorify our God in all that we think, say and do. We will imitate the laid down life of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ Himself. We are His Body on the earth, and we will fulfill our divine commission to serve His people in the days that lie ahead. He will return to find us fighting the good fight of faith in all that we do.

The Body of Christ must be above and beyond reproach as we usher in the Kingdom of God. We must follow all of the Lord’s commandments to us and walk in love and unity as we were taught. Our sanctification must be total and complete, so that we can be suitable vessels for the Lord’s anointing power and authority to manifest through us.

One day we will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We are promised vindication from our former shame and persecution for our faith. The Lord will take vengeance on all our enemies and we will rule and reign with Him for all eternity in the Kingdom of God. We will enjoy many blessings and rewards for righteousness, and have every need met in abundance.

Better Promises

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

While the Lord wants nothing more than to relate to us as His own children, and shower us with eternal blessings, we are also required to do our part. We should obey all His commandments and walk in love. Jesus Christ simplified the law into two basic precepts. We are to love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and love others as we do ourselves.

If we follow the law of love, we will not even think to break any of the Ten Commandments of the Law, because that would be a violation of love. We should love, respect and reverentially fear the Lord above all things and treat our neighbor, as we would like to be treated. If we love God and one another, the full requirement of the law of love will then be satisfied.

We should also work at our own personal sanctification. We must purposely deny our fleshly desires and selfish soul ambitions. We should ask the Lord for the baptism in the Holy Spirit, so that spiritual fruit will emerge in us and help us to mature spiritually. As we walk in the Spirit, we will overcome our flesh and soul, and our behavior will evolve and become godly.

2Peter 1:4 “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”

God’s people are to be in the world, but not contaminated by it. There is death, darkness and destruction all around us. We cannot afford to be defiled by that in any way. We have eternal destinies that must be fulfilled in the days ahead. That requires our thoughts, words and behavior to all be above and beyond reproach. Our righteousness must never ever be compromised.

We must continuously work at sanctifying ourselves of all fleshly desires and personal soul ambitions that interfere with our obedience to God’s will. We should walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh, and subdue our bodies and our souls. We are spirit beings having human experiences; we should put our spirit man in ascendancy, so that we might be partakers of the divine nature.

The sons of God will have to be mirror images of Jesus Christ in the days ahead. The fate of all mankind rests with us, and we have a sacred privilege and responsibility to be consecrated and dedicated to divine service. Sanctification must be our constant goal. We will have to walk as Christ Himself walked the earth. We cannot be doing our own thing or we will be disqualified.

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

We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. We have divine destinies and eternal callings that must be fulfilled. The Lord will imbue us with His very own anointing power and authority to perform miracles, signs and wonders in His name, as we usher the Kingdom of God into the earth. However, we must continually purify ourselves and consecrate all of our efforts to the Lord’s plan.

He will richly bless us and grant us eternal rewards when we usher in the Kingdom of God, as we are ordained to do. He will be our God and provide all of our needs in abundance. We will have peace and prosperity, joy and gladness, safety and security one day soon. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, and rule and reign with Him for all eternity as kings and priests of our God.

The Lord will boast of us to all creation as His sons and daughters and take vengeance on all our enemies. He will vindicate us before men and angels and shower us with all the wealth that the universe has to offer us. We will no longer be ashamed for our faith or afflicted for loving and worshipping God. He will tabernacle with us for all eternity, and we will be His people that are called by His name.

Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken [it].”

The Lord will actually take up residence with us in the Kingdom of God. He has promised to blot out all pain and sorrow from our memories and give us honor and glory for our former shame and persecution. He will provide all of our needs in abundance, and we will enjoy only peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom in His eternal Kingdom.

The people of God will never suffer a permanent loss in their lives. Our Father is quick to compensate us for all that was lost or stolen from us. We will have all the wealth that the universe has to offer us, and be granted the desires of our hearts. We will long enjoy the works of our hands and prosper in all that we do. Even our bodies will be redeemed forever more.

Death will be swallowed up in victory, as all the dead in Christ are raised back to life. We who remain will all be given glorious, resurrection bodies that are impervious to disease, decay and death. We will live forever and be eternally healthy and vigorous. Our reputations and relationships will be restored by the Lord, and our names will become a praise on the earth.

Promises For Righteousness

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

The Lord will generously reward us for our faithfulness to fulfill His eternal redemption plan. We have great promises for walking in love and humble service to others. In the days ahead, we will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to all men and minister as Christ Himself did on the earth. We will fight the good fight of faith and deliver mankind from all sorts of demonic oppression.

We will function in the awesome power and glory of God Himself and destroy all enemy strongholds that interfere with us ushering in the Kingdom of God. We will reorganize and restructure world governments, so that Kingdom principles are put in force. There will finally be peace and order on the earth. We will also restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance, so that it is in total harmony with man as it once was in the Garden of Eden.

Life in the Kingdom of God will be idyllic for us. We will be honored and praised as we continue to serve the Lord and His people. All our needs will be met in abundance and we will experience paradise on the earth. The Lord will tabernacle with us in the Kingdom and take an active part in our lives. We will enjoy intimate fellowship with Him and be glorified as His sons and daughters.

Hebrews 10:35-37 “Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.”

We should have hope and confidence that our Lord will reward us generously for our efforts in serving Him and His people. He has promised us an inheritance in His Kingdom. If we do not become impatient, we will have a just recompense. The Lord will restore all that has been taken from us over the years.

The Lord’s eternal redemption plan should be the single most important thing in our lives as we approach the end of this age. We must be consecrated and dedicated to His plan and purpose, and He will empower us to usher in the Kingdom of God. We will be His representatives on the earth and draw all men to Him.

We must take sanctification to an entirely new level, since we will be sacred vessels for the Lord’s use in the critical days that lie ahead. We cannot be worldly, nor can we permit our flesh and soul to take ascendancy over our spirit man. We must walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh and be well disciplined.

Very soon now, Christ will return to establish His eternal rule and reign. He should find us doing His work all over the earth, so that His Kingdom can come without delay. We are partners with the Lord in ushering in His Kingdom. If we do not fulfill our role in His redemption plan, important work will remain undone.

It is critical that we embrace our divine callings and share our faith with others as we are destined to do. The entire earth must be harvested for souls before we can usher in the Kingdom of God. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life must be called, saved and baptized into the one true faith.

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

A full anointing of the Lord’s own power and authority will be granted to us. We will actually be His hands, feet and voice on the earth. We will represent the Kingdom of God and serve as His ambassadors, preaching the Gospel to all men, women and children so they can be set free to receive the gift of eternal life. We will be proficient in good works and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King.

The sick will be healed; the captives will be set free; and even the dead will be raised back to life again. We will reorganize world governments to line up with Kingdom standards of fairness and justice for all of mankind. There will soon be peace and order on the earth. We will re-create and restore all of nature to its original beauty and balance, so that it is in harmony with man once again as it was in the Garden of Eden.

Very soon now, the Lord will usher in His Kingdom with full power and glory so that all men will be in awe. Jesus Christ will return to judge both men and angels and mete out eternal rewards and punishments. He will destroy all evil in the wrath of His coming, take vengeance on all our enemies and banish Satan to the bottomless pit. No evil will ever enter into the Kingdom of God and defile the Lord or His people.

Our heavenly Father will actually dwell with us in His Kingdom and take an active role in our lives. There will never be a separation between God and man ever again. He will anticipate all of our needs even before we ask Him, and supply all we require to be healthy, happy and prosperous. He will blot out all pain and suffering from our memories. We will enjoy peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom.

There will be no more pain and suffering, war and violence, poverty and lack on the earth. Christ will make certain that the Kingdom of God is serene and peaceful for all of eternity. All the wealth of the universe will be distributed to God’s people for their pleasure. The Lord is never stingy and He will abundantly bless us. We will enjoy our lives and have an inheritance that no one will ever take from us.

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.”

If we are careful to follow all of the Lord’s commandments to us, and walk in His ways at all times, we will enjoy eternal rewards for our righteousness. He will appoint us kings and priests of His people and we will serve them as overseers and teachers. We will be key players in the Kingdom of God because we were faithful to serve the Lord and His people, as we are ordained.

We will receive the heathen in the uttermost parts of the earth for our inheritance. We will judge both men and angels, just as Jesus Christ Himself will do. We will enforce Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all men. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and take vengeance on all of our enemies. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory for all eternity.

Our names will soon be a praise on the earth. All men will look up to us, just as they do Christ Himself. We will teach all Kingdom residents how to walk in love and unity, as the Lord intends for us to do. We will encourage them to worship the Lord and show Him all the deference and respect that He deserves. We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days with reverence.

Rewards For Our Works

1Samuel 12:24 “Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great [things] he hath done for you.”

The Lord has been eminently faithful to us and we should show Him all the deference and respect that He deserves. We must commit our lives to serve Him in implementing His eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. He is counting on us to partner with Him in ushering in the Kingdom of God, so that love, peace and order reign on the earth for all of eternity, as He so ardently desires.

We must continually sanctify ourselves and renounce all sin on an ongoing basis. We should be totally righteous, obedient and walk in love, as Jesus Christ has taught us. We are sanctified vessels for the Lord’s use and He will imbue us with His very own anointing power and authority to be successful in all that we do on His behalf. We should serve Him with joy and gladness in our hearts.

If we do, we will have awesome rewards for our unselfish devotion and faithfulness to the Lord’s service. We will share in Christ’s eternal inheritance in the Kingdom of God and be elevated to positions of honor and glory with Him. We will judge both men and angels and be appointed kings and priests over all the nations of the world. Our names will become a praise on the earth forever.

Revelation 22:12 “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

Jesus will return when we least expect Him. He will destroy all the ungodly off the face of the earth. He will judge both the living and the dead. Only the righteous will enter into His Kingdom and enjoy its eternal blessings. All evil will be expelled and share its punishment in the lake of fire. Nothing defiling will ever enter into the Kingdom of God because the Lord will dwell there.

No evil can abide in the presence of our holy God. He will not tolerate sin or disobedience of any kind. If we are rebellious, we will be expelled from His Kingdom for all of eternity. Only the uncompromisingly loving and righteous will live with Him. If we are obedient and trustworthy in the days ahead, we will receive eternal rewards for our service to the Lord and His people.

Now, more than ever, we should walk circumspectly, because the days are short. We should share the Gospel of the Kingdom with all men. It is not the Lord’s will that any man should perish for lack of knowledge in the truth. We have divine destinies that must be fulfilled in the days ahead. We will bring in the end-time harvest of souls, so that all men might be set free to eternal life.

Matthew 16:27 “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”

Christ will not return as a meek and mild Lamb of God this time. He will come in power and wrath, because there is so much evil on the earth. He will make a dramatic entrance with legions of avenging angels that will finally eradicate evil off the face of the earth for all time.

Nothing will remain the same as it is now. There will be no more war or violence, no greed and oppression. The entire planet will line up with the Word and the will of God. Heaven’s way of doing things will be ushered into the earth, so that love, peace and unity prevail.

Jesus Christ is the only righteous judge of all men. Only He can determine who is walking uprightly and who is not. We have already entered into the period of judgment for the household of God. We should judge ourselves, so that we do not need to be judged by Christ Himself.

He will judge the living and the dead, the righteous and the unrighteous. All nations of the world will come under the Lord’s scrutiny and be evaluated according to Kingdom standards. Only those who walk in love and treat men fairly and equitably will enjoy eternal life and all its benefits.

Christ is deciding who will actually enter in to the Kingdom of God. All those who are righteous and do the will of the Father will inherit His blessings. Anyone who has been continuously rebellious will be destroyed in the lake of fire. No evil will enter into God’s eternal Kingdom.

Revelation 5:10” And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

We will have eternal rewards for our faithful service to the Lord. He will not forget our loving dedication to His people or our critical role in His eternal redemption plan. He will boast of us to all creation and declare our praises all over the face of the earth. We will have honor and glory for our former shame, and inherit significant blessings in the Kingdom of God.

As kings and priests of God, we will actually rule and reign with Christ Himself. We will judge both men and angels and be just overseers and capable teachers. We will govern righteously and make certain that Kingdom principles are all enforced. There will be peace and unity among all God’s people. Everyone will walk in love and fellowship with his neighbors.

We will enjoy new, glorious, resurrection bodies that are free of disease and decay. They will live forever in the presence of almighty God. There will be no suffering, death or accompanying anguish of any kind. We will see our children and our children’s children for all generations. We will worship the Lord, and give Him all the honor and glory that He so deserves.

Divine Inheritance

Colossians 3:24 “Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.”

We have divine destinies to fulfill and the Lord expects us to play our part in executing His eternal redemption plan. We must walk as Jesus Christ walked the earth. If we have been faithful to serve the Lord in ushering in His Kingdom, we will inherit great rewards and eternal blessings for our righteousness. We can expect to share in Christ’s very own inheritance.

Not only is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, but He is also the King of kings that will rule and reign in God’s Kingdom for all eternity. He will avenge all wrongs done to us and recover everything that has been taken from us over the years. The Lord will provide all that we need in abundance, so that we have everything that we require to be happy and prosperous.

We will enjoy life in our new, glorious, resurrection bodies that are free of disease and death. We will be reunited with the dead in Christ and associate with all the angels and saints in God’s Kingdom. Our families and friends will come to know the Lord and worship Him in Spirit and in truth. We will dwell with all believers in love and unity, as the Lord desires.

Christ will confer His very own power and authority on us, so that we actually rule and reign with Him. We will be just rulers and capable teachers in Kingdom principles for righteous living. We will even judge both men and angels and be kings and priests of God. The Lord will fellowship with us intimately, and we will perform all of our duties to His exact specifications.

Isaiah 58:14 “Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].”

All the righteous will inherit the Kingdom of God. Both Jews and Gentiles will become God’s chosen people for all of eternity. There will be no favoritism or partiality shown; everyone who does the will of the Father will be privileged to enter His Kingdom. The Lord will joyfully dwell with all of us. He will fellowship intimately with His family and provide all of our needs in abundance.

There will be fairness and equality for all Kingdom residents. Everyone will enjoy perpetual blessings of peace and prosperity, health and longevity. Those of us who have obediently served the Lord will inherit substantial rewards for our faithfulness. We will have honor and glory and rule and reign with Christ Himself. We will serve the Lord as kings and priests of His people.

We will all worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, and celebrate all of His feasts and sabbaths, as He desires. All men will finally know the Lord and have His laws written in their minds and hearts. We will be totally sanctified in body, soul and spirit and see our God face-to-face, as He has promised us that we would. He will boast of us to all of creation as His very own sons and daughters.

Exodus 15:17 “Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, [in] the place, O LORD, [which] thou hast made for thee to dwell in, [in] the Sanctuary, O Lord, [which] thy hands have established.”

Very soon now, the Lord will actually take up residence with us in the Kingdom of God. He will anticipate all our needs even before we ask. All the resources of the universe are at His disposal, so that He can provide all that we require to lead healthy, happy lives. We will be delivered from our decaying flesh and given new, resurrection bodies that live forever without disease and death.

Some of us will be appointed kings and priests, and rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world. We will assist Him in judgment and be overseers of His people. He has promised us the heathen for our inheritance, and we will govern all men with His very own godly standards. We will help to strictly enforce Kingdom principles, so that order and stability prevail on the earth.

Mankind will eventually walk in love, peace and unity. Life will be a veritable paradise once again. We will see the fruits of our labor, as we serve God’s people for all of eternity. We will be glorified with Christ, and men will look up to us and rely on us for guidance in Kingdom principles for living. We will make certain that there is fairness, justice and equality available to all mankind.

Isaiah 44:3 “For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:”

The people of God will thrive in His presence. We will enjoy unprecedented prosperity, peace and joy. No evil will defile us in any way; we will have safety and security in the Kingdom of God. Instead of our old decaying flesh, we will have new, incorruptible, resurrection bodies that live forever. We will be reunited with friends and family and give the Lord all the thanks and praise.

Our heavenly Father will be a God to us forever more. All men will know Him, from the least to the greatest of us. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts. He will reward us with all temporal and spiritual blessings. He will fellowship with us on a continual basis and take an active role in our lives. We will celebrate all of His perpetual feast days and sabbaths as He requires of us.

The Lord will bless us richly for our part in His eternal redemption plan. He will pour out His Spirit on our children and our children’s children. All of our offspring will be blessed because of our obedience and devotion to Him. All generations to come will know the Lord intimately and worship Him in Spirit and in truth, as He desires. He will be honored and praised for all eternity.

Daniel 7:18 “But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.”

We are a covenant people who have been called from the foundation of the world. We should know our rights and responsibilities. We must walk in love and righteousness and serve God’s people, as we are destined to do. We cannot shirk our duties or there will be important work that remains undone. We must be about our Father’s business and usher in the Kingdom of God.

It will be our eternal inheritance for faithfulness and obedience. But we will have to be totally focused on eternity and take a giant step of faith. If we are willing, the Lord will have us work miraculous signs and wonders in His name and evangelize the entire earth. All of creation will be impacted and we will restore peace, order and stability under the just government of Jesus Christ.

Our heavenly Father will make our names a praise on the earth and glorify us with the same honor that He accords His Son. He will boast of us as His very own sons and daughters and even appoint us as kings and priests to His people. We will rule and reign with Christ for all of eternity in fairness and justice for all mankind. The Lord will fully recompense us for our faithful service.

The Kingdom of God will include a representation of men, women and children from every tongue, race and nation on the earth. The Lord will have a huge household of believers that come together as His people. We will all dwell with our God in love, peace and unity when heaven finally comes to the earth. Mankind will join with angelic hosts in worshipping the Lord forever.

Chapter 4 – Sanctification And Preparation

 

Ephesians 4:24 “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”

When we made Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, we traded sin and corruption for righteousness and peace with God. We became new creatures in Christ, and the process of regeneration began in our lives. Our minds must be totally renewed and our behavior transformed, so that we eventually become spiritually mature. We must desire the things of God more than anything else.

Sanctification and preparation for the Kingdom of God must be our continuous goals. We cannot afford to be both worldly and spiritually minded at this time. Our God does not tolerate compromise in any way. We should strive to be holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect. He will soon dwell with us for all of eternity, and nothing defiling can co-exist with Him in the Kingdom.

The Lord insists that we be purged of all evil and walk in light and love as we were taught. We cannot be satisfied with half measures. We should be totally sold out to our God and His way of doing things. He wants us to lay down our lives in humble service to others in the critical days that lie ahead. None of that will be possible unless we are sanctified of everything that is offensive.

We cannot accomplish anything worthwhile without the intervention of the Holy Spirit of God in our lives. God’s Spirit leads and guides us into all truth. He convicts us of sin and encourages us to repent and have our righteousness restored. If we walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh, we will be continually sensitive to our need for holiness and actively work to sanctify ourselves in the truth.

Ephesians 5:8-10 “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light; (For the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.”

We were once steeped in darkness and deception, but since we have believed in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we are now in the light. We are responsible to walk in the light that we have and mature spiritually. We should ask for the baptism in the Holy Spirit of God. That will change our lives as nothing else can. The Lord will fill us with His very own Spirit from the inside out.

As we grow and develop spiritual fruit in our lives, we will become peaceful, joyous, and loving. If we cultivate meekness and temperance, we will become humble servants of all mankind and lead simple lives of faith. If we work at developing gentleness, goodness and longsuffering, we will be patient in dealing with others, and quick to forgive and forget all wrongs done to us.

Our goal should be to remain willing and obedient to do all that the Lord requires of us. Rebellion is a serious sin and will subject us to punishment, despite the fact that we have acknowledged Christ as our Lord and Savior. We can never willfully and purposely transgress any of God’s laws. Our sanctification is an ongoing requirement that demands our constant attention to it.

We have inherited great and precious promises for our righteousness. They are well worth the effort that it takes to remain in good standing with the Lord. We are no longer separated from God; we enjoy an intimate relationship with Him now. We can expect to receive every good thing that we require to lead happy, healthy, prosperous lives now and in the Kingdom to come.

Crucified With Christ

Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

We are crucified with Christ and He now lives in us to do His Father’s pleasure. We demonstrate His love, humility and commitment. We are brand new creatures in Him. We can walk in holiness and perfection just as He did on the earth. We will complete His ministry and fight the good fight of faith. He will be glorified in us, as we implement the Lord’s eternal redemption plan.

When we made Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, we surrendered ourselves to Him fully and completely. We laid down our self-lives and appropriated His resurrection power. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us – to include becoming righteous and godly for all time. We should no longer have to struggle with sanctification; it will become second nature to us.

Our spirit man can ultimately take ascendancy over our flesh and our soul, so that we are mirror images of Christ Himself. Imitating His laid down life should be our constant goal. We have to give all to get all. We must be buried with Christ and resurrected to the newness of life in Him. When we actually attain to that level of holiness, we will indeed walk as He walked on the earth.

2Timothy 2:21 “If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, [and] prepared unto every good work.”

We have eternal callings and divine destinies that will manifest to make sweeping changes for good in the days to come. The Lord will use us to fulfill His eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. There is much at stake, and we cannot afford to be less than totally sanctified for His plan and purpose. We have to lay down anything and everything that interferes with divine service. We should let the purging fire of God cleanse us of all iniquity.

Sin requires payback, and if we transgress the Lord’s law, we must renounce all our sin and repent of it from the heart. We cannot disobey any of the Lord’s commandments to us and remain righteous in His eyes. We should not be both spiritually oriented and worldly minded; we must make the critical choice to walk in the Holy Spirit and avoid anything that would defile us in any way. We are sons of the living God and much is expected of us.

If we walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh, we will grow in righteousness and godliness. We should strive for full spiritual maturity and imitate Jesus Christ in all our thoughts, words and deeds. If we want divine power and authority to manifest in our lives in the days to come, we must be fully consecrated to the Lord’s purpose and aspire to holiness and perfection, just as He is holy and perfect. We cannot be careless or lax in our behavior ever again.

Philippians 3:9 “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:”

We must be well schooled in fundamental truths. Our belief in Jesus Christ and His atoning work on our behalf is the sole basis for our righteousness; we are not righteous on our own. Through Christ we have inherited eternal life and many covenant promises. We are joint-heirs with Him and sons and daughters of the living God. Our right standing with the Lord is restored for all time, as long as we remain sin free and sanctify ourselves of all defilement.

However, our righteousness is not an opportunity for us to sin in any way. We cannot slide into the Kingdom of God simply on the basis of God’s promise to us. We must work at sanctification and purposely put our spirit man in ascendancy to our flesh and our soul. We must crucify our flesh and subdue our selfish soul ambitions. That way we will be assured of our right standing at all times and our thoughts, words and behavior will all be godly.

We should imitate the laid down life of Christ Himself if we will be useful to the Lord in the days to come. Jesus never did anything without first checking with His Father. He was totally obedient unto death, and that same degree of cooperation is required of us. The Lord will lead and guide us to usher in the Kingdom of God, but we must be willing to do anything and everything that He asks of us. We cannot be distracted in any way or reluctant to obey Him.

The fate of all mankind rests with us and we have a sacred responsibility to attend to God’s plans. He will have us preach the Gospel all over the world, so that many can be saved and baptized to our faith. We will work miracles, signs and wonders to attract all men to the Lord, but we will have to be sanctified to walk in His anointing power and authority. The Lord will only move through those who have consecrated and dedicated themselves for His service.

Ephesians 5:2 “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”

We should imitate Christ’s laid down life and focus on our love walk. We cannot neglect our love for the Lord or others in any way. We must put God first in our lives and give Him all the devotion and respect that He deserves. We must love others, as we love ourselves, and minister to their needs wherever possible. We should be totally unselfish, put others first and grow in holiness.

It is not sufficient to just pray for those who are in need. The law of love requires us to take action to alleviate the suffering of others. We should feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick and imprisoned, just as if we were ministering to Christ Himself. In the days ahead, we will preach the Gospel and baptize men; lay hands on the sick and provide them with healing; cast out demons and set the captives free; and even raise the dead back to life again.

Jesus Christ will judge each of us with the very same fair and equitable standards. We must be sin free at all times, so that we are continually eligible to enter the Lord’s eternal Kingdom. Only those who walk in love for God and for others will actually dwell with Him for all eternity. We must additionally fulfill the Lord’s will for our lives, and be actively engaged in living out our destiny.

Freed From Sin

Romans 8:2 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”

We have been redeemed from the curse of death, which is the only fitting punishment for our sins and transgressions. Christ was made a curse for us with His death on the cross. He died so that we would not have to suffer the penalty for our sins. We have His very resurrection life in us as believers and we should protect that at all costs, so that we are always righteous.

Believers walk in the newness of life; we become new creatures in Jesus Christ. He actually dwells in our spirit man. He is our empowerment to do good and remain righteous at all times. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us and perfects our holiness to make it like His very own. However, we must cooperate with the Lord and be totally transformed.

We must submit ourselves to God and consecrate our lives for divine service. We cannot allow anyone or anything to come before the Lord and His plans for us. We should imitate the laid down life of Christ and walk as He walked the earth. We will have to forego all carnality and selfish soul ambitions. Our lives must be a demonstration of genuine love for God and others.

If we are baptized in the Holy Spirit, sanctification will become much easier for us. The Holy Spirit will convict us of all sin, lead and guide us into all truth. He will empower us to overcome all temptation to sin and help our spirit man to mature in godliness. Spiritual fruit will grow and develop that enable us to improve our relationships and experience victory in our lives.

Romans 6:11 “Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Ever since we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior, our lives have changed for the better. We are dead to sin now, and made alive again in Christ. He came to provide us with redemption and to supply us with life in abundance to the overflow. We no longer need the things that we once did. We are spiritual beings, rather than worldly men. Our righteousness is beyond dispute.

We enjoy great and precious promises. We are sons and daughters of the living God. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. We will spend all of eternity in the presence of our loving God. He will meet all of our needs in abundance and boast of us to all creation. If we are faithful and true to our callings, we will inherit great rewards.

The Lord will generously compensate us and take vengeance on all our enemies. We will be appointed kings and priests of God and judge both men and angels. We will be given the heathen nations for our inheritance and be just rulers and capable teachers of all men. We will share in Jesus Christ’s very own honor and glory for all of eternity and rule and reign with Him.

Romans 6:22 “But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.”

But first, we must be continually sanctified for the Lord’s purpose and walk in total righteousness and love at all times. We must crucify our flesh and subdue our soul ambitions. We cannot be selfish in any way. We must put the Lord first and be humble servants of others. Our lives are now proving grounds to see if we will be holy and perfect, just as the Lord is holy and perfect.

While it may seem difficult for us to attain to that high level of righteousness, we enjoy the intimate presence of Christ, which motivates us to be at our best. We were bought with a dear price, the Blood of Jesus Himself. We cannot be doing our own thing any longer; we have a sacred responsibility to present our bodies as living sacrifices, so the Lord can work through us.

We will preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead in the days to come. None of that will be possible for us, if we are bound up in sin and defilement. We must remain sin free at all times and walk in love and righteousness, as we have been taught. Much depend on our willingness and obedience. We will have to be totally focused on sanctification.

Keep The Commandments

Deuteronomy 8:6 “Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.”

We should have a reverential fear of the Lord and show Him all the deference and respect that He deserves. His standards are the moral absolutes that we should attain in our lives. We must put Him first in all things and walk in love for Him and others. If we abide by the law of love, we will keep all of the Ten Commandments and be assured of continuing righteousness.

There is a heaven to gain and a hell to shun. Christ will soon return to destroy all evil off the face of the earth and render fair and equitable judgment of the living and the dead. No one will escape His scrutiny or avoid His permanent and lasting judgment. He will decide who will enter into the Kingdom of God and enjoy its blessings; it will be heaven on earth for all who dwell there.

Jesus Christ will determine who will receive everlasting punishment in the lake of fire. Nothing evil will enter into His Kingdom and defile man or God. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth by many who failed the test of love and righteousness when they walked the earth. They will be forever banished from the presence of God and the blessings of His eternal Kingdom.

Leviticus 22:31 “Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I [am] the LORD.”

God’s laws are not heavy and burdensome to us. They were never intended to make us unhappy or take any of our freedoms from us. They promote love and unity among us. They are moral guidelines for sound living, and essential if there will be peace and order on the earth. It is vital that there be set standards for suitable interactions among men to avoid any chaos and conflict.

The Ten Commandments will keep us all in line, so that we have love and respect for God and for one another. There are promises attached to them. If we are righteous and obey what God asks of us, we will receive many blessings in return. We must always adhere to the Lord’s moral absolutes, so that we remain in right standing with Him and in close fellowship with our neighbors.

Holiness and perfection should be our goal, as we grow and develop in our relationship with God and strive for spiritual maturity. We should put our spirit man in ascendancy to our flesh and soul and walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh. We should cultivate spiritual fruit in our lives so that we are loving, peaceful, gentle, good, meek, temperate and longsuffering in our relationships.

If we walk in genuine love for God and for others, we will not even think of violating any of the commandments, as that would signify a step out of love for us. We should love the Lord with all our hearts and regard others as we do ourselves. Our love for God should spontaneously spill out into all of our human interactions, so that we are at peace with all men wherever possible.

Leviticus 20:7-8 “Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I [am] the LORD your God. And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I [am] the LORD which sanctify you.”

When we made Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, we began a regeneration process. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is transformed into godliness. That process is ongoing and requires our attention to it. We must cooperate with sanctification; it is not automatic. The Lord will send His purging fire to us and totally purify our lives if we ask Him.

It is imperative that we keep all of the commandments of the Lord and walk in love for Him and for others, as we have been taught to do. There is no room for compromise if we will serve God in fulfilling His eternal purposes. We must be examples of righteousness to all men, as we preach the Gospel message with power and conviction. So too, we will one day dwell with the Lord Himself and that requires us to be holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect.

We must rid ourselves of all evil and purge out all filthiness of the soul and flesh in the days ahead. If we are to be good stewards of God’s anointing power and authority, then we must be completely sanctified in body, soul and spirit. We must set our minds to relinquish all that we are and all that we have, to be consecrated for the Lord’s eternal redemption plan and purpose.

Sanctification With A Purpose

1John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

It goes without saying that we must remain sin free and righteous at all times. That is our primary responsibility now and in the days ahead. We must confess all our sins and renounce them for all time. The Lord will be faithful to forgive us and cleanse us of all unrighteousness by the power of the Holy Spirit, which works through us to convict us of sin and lead us into truth.

We must reverence the Lord as we have been instructed, and show genuine love and affection for our neighbors. We should walk in love at all times and treat others, as we do ourselves. We must offer ourselves in humble service to the Lord and assist Him in implementing His eternal redemption plan, so that all of mankind will be able to share our faith and gain eternal life.

The Lord will purge us of all that offends Him and cleanse us of all that defiles us if we ask Him for His help. We ought to be suitable vessels for His anointing power and authority to manifest through us. We must be godly examples and living testimonies to His glory if we wish to serve Him. He will not be able to utilize us unless we are totally sanctified and fully submitted to His will.

Proverbs 16:6 “By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD [men] depart from evil.”

We have to acquire and maintain a healthy fear of the Lord. We should hold Him in the highest respect and defer to His divine authority in all matters. We have an obligation to know the truth and walk in it; we cannot be doing our own thing and hope to please God. We were bought with a dear price – the Blood of Jesus Christ Himself. It is vital that we purge ourselves of all defilement.

There may be a few things that we have to sacrifice in our lives, if we are to become sacred vessels consecrated for the Lord’s use. While this could make us uncomfortable for a time, we will have eternal rewards that we can expect for our efforts on His behalf. Nothing that we give up in this world can compare to the glory that will be given us in God’s Kingdom if we are faithful.

We must keep all of the commandments and walk in love for God and for others at all times. We cannot be selfish in any way. We must put others’ needs before our own. We should be humble servants if we will be useful in ushering in the Kingdom of God. Our lives should be above and beyond reproach, so that we can be clear testimonies to God’s power and glory at work in and through us.

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

Once we are emptied out of all that defiles us and interferes with our doing the will of God, the Lord can confer His very own anointing power and authority on us. This will enable us to walk in supernatural signs and wonders, just as Christ did during His earthly ministry. We will preach the Gospel with power and conviction, heal the sick, cast out all demons and raise the dead back to life.

We will speak to all world leaders and make certain that their government policies line up with Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality for all men. We will eliminate war and violence and establish peace and order on the earth. We will command all of creation to line up with the Word and the will of God. All of nature will be in harmony and subject to man’s dominion again.

Nothing that we do will be effected in our own strength or through our own human capabilities. We will not be able to boast of our feats. We will fulfill the eternal redemption plan and purpose of God for all of mankind through His power alone. The Lord will be exalted in all of our accomplishments and His name will be glorified in all that we do to usher in the Kingdom of God on the earth.

Sanctified In The Truth

John 17:17-18 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.”

We are obliged to be of service to the Lord and His eternal redemption plan. We cannot be concerned with our own needs and personal ambitions. We must sanctify ourselves for His service in ushering in the Kingdom and imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself. Only then will we be suitable for the Lord’s use and effective in all that He calls us to do on His behalf.

Jesus prayed to His Father for us, before He went to the cross. He wanted us sanctified in the truth, just as He Himself had been sanctified. He knew what we would be up against in our earthly ministry. He had experienced many of the same temptations and afflictions that we will endure. He knew that we needed to be focused on the truth in order to avoid all difficulties.

We should get back to the basics of our faith and study the Word of God as never before. It will keep us centered on God’s ways and give us the added insight that we need to serve the Lord in all that He asks us to do. So too, we should be in continuous prayer and meditation, so that we remain very close to Him and appropriate His divine strength and endurance for the days ahead.

The Body of Christ has been given a divine commission from Jesus Christ. We should be found doing His work on the earth when He returns to rule and reign in His Kingdom. The Gospel must be preached to all men everywhere, so that they are able to be saved and baptized in our faith. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead to attract men to our God.

Revelation 3:19 “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”

The Lord loves us with a deep, abiding love and He is ever compassionate to the battles we face with our flesh and our souls. But that never gives us an excuse to deliberately sin and transgress His laws in any way. We cannot be rebellious or take our Christian liberty for granted. We are required to walk in love and remain totally righteous at all times and under all circumstances.

When we sin and fall short of God’s glory, we must earnestly repent and renounce our sin. When we do so, the Lord will forgive us and reinstate all our blessings for righteousness. If we strive to remain sin free at all times, we will continue to be sanctified for the Lord’s purpose. He will accomplish mighty feats through us, and usher in the Kingdom of God with power and glory.

It is our sacred responsibility to seek holiness and perfection in our walk with the Lord, so that we can be demonstrations of righteousness and godliness to His people. We cannot preach the Gospel message effectively, if we are overcome by the world, our flesh or the devil. We are the Body of Christ on the earth; we must imitate His attributes and adopt His laid down life as our own.

We will ultimately become holy and perfect, just as the Lord is holy and perfect. None of this can be accomplished in our own strength. The Holy Spirit will assist us in our efforts and convict us of all sin and unrighteousness. If we are willing, faithful and obedient we will draw many to the Lord, so that they can also become righteous and holy and enjoy the blessings of eternal life.

1John 2:15 “Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”

We are to be in the world, but not of it. We should be righteous examples to all men without being contaminated by their sins. We must imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ and walk in holiness and perfection, just as He did. We can be loving and kind to others, but we must insulate ourselves from anything and everything that could interfere with our serving God.

Those in the world are steeped in darkness, deception and destruction. They are given to all sorts of unrighteousness and blatant evil in their lives. We should separate ourselves from all that defiles us in any way and seek after righteousness, so that we can be suitable vessels for the Lord’s use. We may have to change our way of thinking and behaving and acquire new friends.

We cannot be both worldly and spiritually minded. Ours is not a God of compromise. He insists that we maintain our righteousness at all costs. We are called to be separated unto Him and obedient to His guidance and direction for our lives. If we will be of any value to God in the days that lie ahead, we will have to be consecrated and dedicated for His use on a continual basis.

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

Although we may think we are righteous, we will have to take our sanctification to an entirely new level to fulfill our destinies and have the privilege of serving the Lord in His eternal redemption plan. We should be living testimonies to the power and glory of God to change lives for the better. We must demonstrate total integrity, righteousness and love in all that we think, say and do.

We must fight the good fight of faith and be strong witnesses of righteousness and godliness to others. Actions speak louder than words and men everywhere will be looking to us to see how we conduct ourselves. We will be closely scrutinized to see if we are truly holy ourselves. Everything that we do will have to be above and beyond reproach in the days to come. We must follow the lead of Christ Himself and emulate His words and actions.

The Holy Spirit will indwell us in all His fullness, so that we can become godly and more effective in dealing with others in the critical days that lie ahead. Our faith will be strengthened, so that we serve the Lord diligently in all that we are called to do. Our love walk will be unmatched, as we patiently and meekly guide God’s people in all we do to usher in the Kingdom of God.

Holy Examples

Exodus 30:29 “And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.”

We will be privileged to be the Lord’s hands, feet and voice on the earth in the near future. That will require us to be totally sold out to the things of God and dedicated to His goals instead of our own. We should aspire to holiness and perfection, as the Lord Himself is holy and perfect. We will be continuing Christ’s ministry on the earth, and we have to be consecrated in order to be effective in doing His important work. We must make the Lord’s plan and purpose our very own.

The Gospel of the Kingdom must be preached to all men, so that they have an opportunity to hear the truth, be converted and baptized into our faith. It is not the Lord’s desire that any man should perish. We will heal the sick, deliver captives free of enemy oppression and affliction of all types, and even raise the dead. We will attract many to the truth through our willing service. Everything we do will be a demonstration of the Lord’s very own love, mercy and compassion.

Our sanctification will be fully perfected if we are godly in our thoughts, words and actions. We will bless all men with whom we come in contact and be an inspiration to them. They will be drawn to the Lord by our behavior and encouraged to perfect their own spirituality. The Lord will be glorified in all that we do to usher in the Kingdom of God, and He will not forget our service to Him and to His people. We will enjoy eternal blessings and generous rewards for our faithfulness.

1Thessalonians 4:7 “For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.”

While it is the Lord’s greatest desire to actually take up residence with His people in the Kingdom of God, no defilement or evil of any kind can be in His presence. We must strive for holiness and perfection, just as God is holy and perfect. We must sanctify ourselves of all fleshly desires and subdue our selfish soul ambitions in favor of the Lord’s eternal plan and purpose for our lives.

We must take sanctification to an entirely different level than we have in the past. We should ask the Holy Spirit to convict us of all our shortcomings, purge us and cleanse us of all filthiness of the flesh and soul. We need to deliberately eliminate all worldliness and become more heavenly minded. We should walk in the Holy Spirit instead of our flesh at all times and renounce all sin.

Christ walked the earth in full obedience and spiritual perfection. He did not do this as God, but as a mere man operating in total righteousness. He is our role model and we should imitate His laid down life. We will be picking up His ministry where He left off, and we should demonstrate to all the world that we are His disciples. We must be living gospels of His godliness at all times.

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.”

He, who was without sin of any kind, became sin for us, so that we could be saved to eternal life. But we cannot ever take our righteousness for granted. We must resolve to be sin free at all times, so we can be suitable vessels for the Lord’s use in ushering in His Kingdom. Our redemption will soon be completed and we will all eventually be godly in our thoughts, words and actions.

When Jesus returns, He will redeem our decaying bodies and make them like His very own. We will all be changed in the twinkling of an eye to glorious, resurrection bodies that live forever free of disease and death. The Lord Himself will take up residence with us and boast of us to all creation. He will fellowship with us intimately for all of eternity and take an active role in our lives.

We will have generous rewards for our humble service to the Lord. We will rule and reign with Jesus Christ and share in His very own honor and glory. The Lord will defend us and take vengeance on all of our enemies. He will provide all our needs and teach us Kingdom principles of justice and fairness. We will help to judge both men and angels, and be kings and priests of God.

Sanctified In His Service

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

Too many subscribe to the rapture theory and believe that we will be evacuated from the earth prior to Christ’s return. That seems unlikely, since we have been called to partner with God in establishing His Kingdom. We should cling to sound doctrine and ask the Lord for revelation.

He created us in His very own image and likeness to be key players in these last days. We are born again and filled with the Holy Spirit of God Himself. We must rise up in our divine anointing and take back the entire earth for Jesus Christ. Much depends on our willingness and obedience.

The Body of Christ must be sanctified for His service and ready and available when He calls on us to fulfill His eternal redemption plan. We have eternal callings and divine destinies that will play out prior to Christ’s return. We cannot shirk our duty or avoid our responsibilities to God.

We are to take up Christ’s ministry on the earth where He left off, and do the works that He did for the benefit of all of mankind. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to all men, heal the sick and deliver all who are oppressed of the devil. We will even raise the dead back to life again.

There is much at stake as we seek to serve the Lord in His eternal redemption plan. We should make the Gospel available to all men so that they can be set free. Those who do believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, will be saved unto eternal life; those who do not believe are already condemned.

1Peter 3:15 “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and [be] ready always to [give] an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”

Evangelization should be our main goal in the days ahead. We must be sanctified to share the truth effectively with others. We should be well schooled in the doctrines of our faith, and living examples of discipleship to all men. Our conversation and behavior must be above reproach. All men will be looking to us as godly examples and role models for righteousness.

The Lord will unveil the minds and reveal the hearts of those to whom we are sent. We should be prepared to give them a solid testimony to our faith, and bear accurate witness to the dogma of salvation through Jesus. We should preach Christ crucified and resurrected in all of His power. There is no one too incorrigible that he cannot be saved.

We must explain how Jesus came to the earth to teach us God’s way of doing things and to save us from our sins. His death on the cross was voluntary and His own Blood served as atonement, or payback, for the sins of mankind. His resurrection from the dead is our guarantee of eternal life. He came to defeat all the works of the devil and to provide us with life in abundance.

Everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior should be baptized with water and the Holy Spirit. We must additionally walk in love and righteousness and keep all the commandments, as we have been taught. It is also important that we seek the Lord’s will at all times and make ourselves available for divine service whenever it is required of us.

Hebrews 12:28 “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:”

The Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached with power and conviction all over the world, so all men have access to the truth. It is not the Lord’s desire that any man perishes for lack of knowledge. He wants us all to repent and believe in His Son, so we can spend all of eternity with Him in the Kingdom of God.

When we share the Gospel message, we should keep it geared to the level of our listener without compromising its integrity in any way. We must not use terminology that confuses them or turns them off. We should keep the message of Christ simple, yet powerful, so all may understand and be converted.

If we tell men that the Son of God came to teach us His ways and save us from our sins, we will be properly focused. We should remind them that we must all have a reverential fear and respect of God, because He has the power to either forgive us for our sins or eternally condemn us for unrighteousness.

It is always a good idea to pray and seek the Lord’s direction in difficult cases. He will provide all the insight that we need to be effective in spreading our faith in Christ. He will facilitate our methods and give us just the right words to speak to every man, woman and child whom we may encounter along the way.

We should never look down on others, or assume that they will never change their ways. Our job is to share the Gospel in its simplicity, as the Lord Himself directs us. The Holy Spirit will pick up where we leave off in our evangelization efforts. He will convict men of all their sins and lead them into the truth.

Righteous Without Compromise

Hebrews 12:14 “Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:”

The best evangelizing tool of all is a righteous example to others. If our attitude and behavior is godly, then the actual words that we speak in spreading our faith become secondary. Our lives should be testimonies in and of themselves. We can explain how we were before we made Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, and contrast that with how we think, feel and behave now.

If we actually live our faith, we will be excellent witnesses. Without God we are powerless, but with Him, we can do all things. We should not neglect to tell others that the Lord loves them despite their past. All He really wants is to have a close relationship with them. It is His deepest desire to provide all our needs and be a Father to us, as He intended from the beginning of time.

We should walk in love and peace with all men, despite the provocation we may have to be offended. Unbelievers can sometimes be irascible while they are struggling with their faith. They tend to strike out and fight every attempt to win them over. We should recognize this behavior as being demonic in origin and overlook it if possible. We are called to forgive others at all times.

Romans 10:3 “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.”

We should never beat others up with our Bibles or try to impress them with our knowledge of spiritual truths. Spreading the Gospel requires that we be in tune to what others are thinking and feeling, and be sensitive to their needs. The Lord wants us to teach all men the truth using gentleness and persuasion as our tactics for winning them over. He will finish the task of sanctifying them Himself.

He has a plan for every man, woman and child on the face of the planet. It is the responsibility of the Holy Spirit to lead and guide them in all truth. We have no business trying to straighten others out or criticizing them in their walk with the Lord. He is eminently capable of touching their hearts and making any fine-tuned adjustments that they may require in their individual lives in order to submit to His righteousness.

Many who have rejected God do so out of feelings of guilt and unworthiness. They feel they are so inherently bad that the Lord can never forgive them. That is totally untrue; He desires that all men come to a full knowledge of the truth. He wants to love and bless each of us, and dwell with us for all of eternity in His Kingdom. None of us is more entitled to God’s love and forgiveness than another.

1Corinthians 4:5 “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.”

If we have controlling, religious spirits and look down on others, we will never see God. He insists that we all walk in love, mercy and compassion for others. None of us is truly worthy of His blessings. Our salvation is a free gift of God, made available to all men. It is not reserved for just a select few who think that they are righteous. The Lord wants us all to receive eternal life.

We are guilty of hypocrisy ourselves if we criticize and condemn others, because all have fallen short of the glory of God. We will one day judge both men and angels, but we must learn the principles of righteous judgment before that will occur. We have to be able to see things as God sees them, and judge as Jesus Christ Himself will judge – with just, fair and equitable standards.

The Word stipulates that we are to love all men, despite what they may do to us. Love is not optional for us; we are to bless even our enemies. We have to forgive and forget all wrongs done to us, and avoid developing anger, hatred and bitterness towards others. We must learn to view them as God sees them and be at peace with all men, believers and unbelievers, wherever possible.

Walking Worthy Of God

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

The Lord has plans for us. He created us for His purpose and we are obliged to accommodate all of His needs. We were called from the very foundation of the world. We are His ambassadors on the earth. He wants to work through us to reach all men and gather them into His Kingdom. We should be fully prepared to answer our call to duty whenever the Lord requires our service.

We cannot shrink back in a sense of false humility. Nor can we afford to entertain fear, doubt or unbelief. There are important tasks to be accomplished for the Kingdom of God. If we do not respond affirmatively to the Lord’s call, He will be compelled to seek others who are willing and available to serve Him. Each of us is capable of being a yielded vessel for His purpose.

Our age, sex, talent and experience will have no bearing on our effectiveness in serving the Lord in the days to come. He will use men, women and children from all over the world and from every walk of life to usher in His eternal Kingdom. We will be amazed at who actually comprises the Body of Christ. The Lord can and will anoint anyone who is consecrated and dedicated to Him.

The Body of Christ is commissioned to heal all the sick and infirm. We will cast out demons and set men free from their bondage to sin. We will even raise the dead back to life again, so that they can join us for eternal blessings in the Kingdom of God when it is ushered in to the earth. There will be nothing that is impossible to us, as we serve the Lord and His people.

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

Our primary responsibility is to sanctify ourselves for the Lord’s service. We must lay down all fleshly desires and subdue our selfish soul ambitions, so that we are completely focused on the Lord’s eternal plan and purpose for all of mankind. If we want a full impartation of Jesus Christ’s very own anointing power and authority available to us, then we must be purified for its use. We cannot be both worldly and spiritually minded; we must be uncompromisingly righteous.

It will become much easier to spread the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, as the day approaches for Christ’s return. The world is desperate for the truth now, but will be even more so, in the near future. So too, we will walk in miracles, signs and wonders to attract all men to our faith. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again. We will tear down all demonic strongholds and set the captives free, as the Lord intends for us to do.

Men will no longer be able to avoid the truth, with so many powerful demonstrations of God’s glory manifesting everywhere on the earth. They will flock to us in unprecedented numbers and even spread the faith among themselves. We will be converting and baptizing all those who desire to make Jesus Christ the Lord of their lives and enter into His Kingdom for all of eternity. No man will perish for lack of knowledge; the Gospel will be preached all over the world.

Romans 10:15 “And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

We have a divine commission from Jesus Christ Himself. We are to pick up where His ministry left off and preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to men in every nation of the world. While it may be physically impossible for each of us to go in person to fulfill this command, we can always support foreign mission projects that dispatch other evangelists and teachers.

Everyone will have the opportunity to receive eternal life. The Gospel will be preached to all the world. The Lord’s eternal redemption plan is perfect. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be saved and inherit eternal blessings for righteousness. What men don’t learn before they get to the Kingdom of God will be taught to them once they do enter into it.

One day all men will know the Lord; His laws will be written in their minds and hearts. We will dwell in love and unity, as He desires, and there will finally be peace on the earth as we usher in the Kingdom of God. Everyone who lives in God’s Kingdom will worship Him in Spirit and in truth. We will celebrate all His sabbaths and perpetual feast days, as we are required to do.

Colossians 1:10-11 “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;”

It will become increasingly important that we cleanse ourselves of all defilement that might interfere with our serving the Lord at peak performance in the days ahead. The greater our responsibility in ushering in His Kingdom, the more consecrated we will need to be to accomplish our goals. The Lord’s priorities should be ours; His plan and purpose should take precedence over our own.

We must be baptized in the Holy Spirit of God and subdue our carnality and our souls once and for all. We should walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh and cultivate spiritual fruit in our lives. Our behavior must be godly and righteous, and that requires us to be good, loving and peaceful. We should also be meek, temperate and well disciplined, longsuffering and patient with all men.

The Lord will endue us with His very own anointing power and authority. We must be very careful how we wield His power; it should always be used for the benefit of others. We are servants of the most high God; He is entrusting us with the welfare of His people. We have to be responsible stewards of His anointing, so that it is employed for constructive purposes under all conditions.

We should do everything that we are assigned willing and obediently. The Lord wants us to serve Him and His people with faith and devotion, not out of obligation or constraint. We will be strengthened in our inner man, so that we can accomplish great feats on His behalf. If we assume our divine destinies, as we should, we will experience joy and victory in all that we are called to do.

Preserved Until Christ’s Coming

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

The Body of Christ will be engaged in open spiritual warfare with Satan in the days ahead. He knows that his time is short, and he will stop at nothing to interfere with heaven coming to the earth. He is out to destroy us and impede all our efforts to usher in the Kingdom of God. The good news is that he is a defeated foe. Christ stripped him of his power and restored dominion and authority over the earth back to man. We have received control over the enemy for all time.

We will tear down all demonic strongholds in our way, as we usher in the Kingdom of God. All mind blinding spirits that have kept men in darkness and spiritual destruction will be removed from our path. No hindering spirits will detain us from spreading the Gospel of the Kingdom and serving men in their affliction and oppression. No fear, doubt or unbelief will deter us in reaching our goals. We will walk in total confidence that the Lord backs us up in all that we do.

Our words that line up with the Word and the will of God will totally restructure the entire earth, so that heaven can be brought in, as the Lord plans. We will establish Kingdom principles for living that cannot be ignored. All men will take notice of our God and learn His ways. We will teach them how to walk in love and righteousness, or they will be expelled from His Kingdom for all eternity. Very soon now, every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord.”

The Kingdom of God will be ushered into the earth realm with miraculous signs and wonders attending it. We will have legions of ministering angels to assist us in our efforts. We will totally reorganize world governments to line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and equality for all men. Love, peace and unity will prevail. We will restore all of creation to its original beauty and balance, as it was intended from the creation. There will soon be order and stability on the earth.

1Thessalonians 3:13 “To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”

We should do all that we are called to do in the days ahead with love and devotion in our hearts. The Lord does not want us to serve Him out of obligation or constraint. He desires that we be willing and obedient of our own choosing. Although the things that He asks us to do are a stretch for us in the natural, He will equip us and prepare us to serve Him with faith and confidence.

We will have a full anointing in the same dynamic power that Christ Himself employed during His earthly ministry. Christ walked as a mere man on the earth with the Lord’s own power and authority to back Him up. Everything that He did was a result of His perfect obedience to follow the Lord’s lead and direction. Jesus said that He only did what the Father told Him to do.

We will have to take our devotion and obedience to a new level as we usher in the Kingdom of God. Nothing can interfere with our mission or deter us from fighting the good fight of faith. We will have to be fully focused on eternity and discipline ourselves, so that we can be sacred vessels for the Lord’s use. He will imbue us with power from on high, so that we are victorious.

Deuteronomy 11:8-9 “Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it; And that ye may prolong your days in the land, which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land that floweth with milk and honey.”

If we follow all the Lord’s commands to us, we will be successful in our earthly ministry. We should walk in love and humility. We have to sanctify ourselves of all known sin. We must be open to the Lord’s direction and say only what He wants us to say, and do only what He asks of us. Then He will give us His very own power, so that we can prevail in all that we are assigned to do.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom with a new fervor, so that the full end-times harvest of souls can be gathered in. We will perform miraculous signs and wonders to attract all men to our faith. We will heal all those who are sick and infirm. We will deliver all captives free of enemy oppression. We will even raise the dead through the operation of the Holy Spirit at work in us.

Peace and order will be brought back to the earth, so that Christ can return to rule and reign in His Kingdom. We will challenge world governments to line up with principles of fairness and justice for all men. We will confront government leaders and persuade them to be merciful and compassionate to the plight of their people, so that the Lord can bless their nations as He intends.

1Thessalonians 5:23 “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

We will be preserved blameless until the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, if we walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh. We should be totally sold out to the things of God in all that we say and do, and the Lord will reward all of our efforts. All men are looking to us as examples and role models, and we must be living testimonies to the power of God at work in us and through us.

We are the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. We must be holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect. Christ will soon return to receive His everlasting Kingdom from us. We should be found doing His work and ministering to His people in love and compassion. We are future kings and priests of God. We are being held to impeccable standards of attitude and performance.

We will soon have an eternal legacy in the Kingdom of God. Nothing will interrupt the serenity of life in God’s presence. It will be a veritable paradise, just as it was in the Garden of Eden. We will have only peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and gladness for all eternity. We will be blessed beyond our expectations and rejoice in all that God has done for us.

Chapter 5 –The Good Fight of Faith

 

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Faith is a genuine hope for the future right here in the present. It is our evidence of things not yet seen. It is longing and expectancy activated in the spirit realm, so that it eventually manifests in the natural world around us. Without faith we cannot have anything positive materialize.

With faith, we can have victory in all our situations and circumstances. It is a fruit of the Holy Spirit of God that interacts with peace and joy. It is confidence in the provision of almighty God for His people. It stimulates trust in the Lord despite what we see in the world around us.

Faith is a supernatural force that propels us into the unknown. It gives us patience, strength and endurance to wait for our desired breakthrough and to do so with assurance in our hearts. With faith, we can see the fruit of our imaginations take hold and manifest as a result of our beliefs.

If we do not waver in our trust in God, we will have everything that we want and need come forth almost miraculously in our lives. The Lord will never let us be ashamed for our faith. He will always reward us for our confidence in Him and in His ability to provide all that we require.

Our faith takes us from the realm of possibility into actual reality. If we believe, then we will receive, as long as we ask in Christ’s name. If two or more of us will agree in prayer, what we expect will be granted to us for our faith. The Lord will withhold no good thing from His people.

Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

Faith impresses God, but fear, doubt and unbelief displease Him. He wants to be our source for all that we need to be healthy, happy and prosperous. He promised that He will never leave us or forsake us, and that He will generously supply all that we require, both spiritually and temporally, for all of eternity. We can rely on the Lord to always make good on His promises to us most generously.

God does not lie to us. If we put our faith in Him and the power of the cross of Jesus Christ, we will never ever be disappointed. We are justified by our faith in Christ, and we have great and precious promises for our faith. We are joint-heirs with Jesus to all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. We are actually seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.

Our right standing with God has been restored for all time. We can approach the throne of grace without fear, shame or condemnation. We need not plead or grovel to make our needs known and have all of them met. The Lord will hear all of our prayers and respond positively to our requests. We must simply be patient to see all that we need and desire manifest right before our very own eyes.

We are sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. He will move heaven and earth to protect and provide for His family, as any good father. All that we must do is forego our own stubborn independence and cast our cares on Him, since He cares for us. If we exercise our faith and walk in it, we will be completely satisfied. He will never permit us to be ashamed or left empty-handed.

If we stand on God’s promises to us and do not waver, all of our needs will be met in abundance. If we are diligent in our faith, all that we hope for will materialize in our lives just as God has promised us. The Lord will always come through for us and give us exceeding abundantly more than we could ever ask or think if we place our faith and trust in Him, rather than in our own human strength.

Saved By Faith

Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:”

We were all once lost in sin and darkness, but through faith in Jesus Christ we have received the gift of eternal life. God loved us so much that He made provision for our redemption by sending His very own Son to be a propitiation for the sins of all of mankind. Through Christ, we have unmerited favor or grace with God. Our sinfulness is no longer an issue. We have been washed clean in His Blood.

Although we were once condemned to death as a penalty for our sins and estranged from God, our right standing with Him has been restored for all time. When the Lord sees us, He sees Jesus in all of His righteousness. We are heirs to great and precious promises. Christ was the firstborn of many sons and daughters, and we are seated with Him in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself.

Our faith has saved us from eternal damnation and given us hope and confidence for our future. We will not be destroyed for our iniquity; our guilt has been removed far from us. The Lord has seen fit to bless us despite our past, and we can look forward to life in His everlasting Kingdom. If we remain righteous and walk in love for the Lord and for others, we will one day dwell in the very presence of God.

Colossians 2:11-13 “In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with [him] through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses.”

Even though we have been saved from our sins and inherited eternal life as a result of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, we cannot be deliberately rebellious. We must strive to remain sin free at all times and continually sanctify ourselves. We should forego all carnality and subdue our selfish soul ambitions, so that we can serve the Lord effectively.

We have been buried with Christ in the baptism for our sins, and we are resurrected with Him to the newness of life. The process of regeneration then begins in us. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is totally transformed. We become new creatures in Christ and embrace our divine destinies as the sons and daughters of almighty God.

If we ask the Lord for the baptism in the Holy Spirit, He will gladly accommodate us. His Spirit will take up residence in our spirit, so that we can become holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect. The Holy Spirit will convict us of any sin, lead and guide us into all righteousness. We will receive the fruit of the Spirit and become more spiritually mature.

We will grow and develop in the Lord, so that we always walk in love and follow all of His commandments. If we give the Holy Spirit full sway in our lives, we will imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself and seek to serve God and others. We will assume our divine roles in the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for all of mankind.

Hebrews 12:2 “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

We have eternal callings and divine destinies as the children of God. We must fight the good fight of faith and share our beliefs with men everywhere, so that they can be saved unto eternal life, as we have been. We should preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power and conviction, so that men, women and children all over the world can be released from their bondage to sin into the perfect liberty of the sons of God.

All that we must do to be saved is to believe in our hearts that Jesus Christ died to save all mankind from their sins, and confess Him as our Lord and Savior. If we sincerely repent from all known sin and we are baptized with water for the remission of our sins, we will receive eternal life. As many as have accepted Christ become new creatures in Him. Our old self dies to sin and we are born again in our spirit man.

Our minds are renewed and our behavior is transformed, so that we become godly in all that we think, say and do. We imitate the laid down life of Christ Himself and walk in power and authority on the earth. The supernatural becomes commonplace to us and we work miracles, signs and wonders to attract men to our faith. We heal the sick and afflicted of all their diseases and can even raise the dead back to life again.

Christ is now seated at the right hand of God and He is resting from all of His work. We have been given a divine commission to do the works that He did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with the Father. We will fulfill His ministry and deliver His Kingdom to Him one day in the very near future. We are His hands, feet and voice on the earth, and He will be glorified in those who are called His disciples.

Sons Of God By Faith

Galatians 3:26 “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

It is only through our faith in Jesus Christ that we are saved from our sins and become heirs to great promises. He died, so that we do not have to suffer the penalty for sin, which is physical and spiritual death. He served as the perfect atonement for the sin debt of all mankind once and for all. Because of His death and resurrection, we have received the promise of eternal life.

Christ restored us to right standing with God, so that we can approach the throne of grace without fear and trepidation. If we have faith in Him and His sacrifice on our behalf, we have sonship rights. We are actually seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of God Himself. We are joint-heirs to all the promises for righteousness, to include entry into the Kingdom of God.

We are the sons of God; we will be blessed and rewarded for all of eternity. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and share His very own honor and glory with us. If we have been faithful to walk in His ways and serve Him, we will be made kings and priests of God and judge both men and angels. We will actually rule and reign with Christ Himself over all nations of the world.

Ephesians 3:12 “In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.”

With faith, it is possible to approach the throne of grace and know in advance that we have favor with God. He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory. We will have all that we require to be successful in this life and in the next. All that we must do is lay down our lives in sacrificial service and the Lord will grant us real power.

He will imbue us with His very own divine anointing to be successful. We will take back the earth and everything in it for the Kingdom of God. All governments and their economies will line up with the Word of God, as we speak it. All creation will be restored to its original beauty and balance. We will establish peace and order everywhere we go.

We have faith and confidence that the Lord will show Himself strong on our behalf. He will glorify Himself in us and provide all that we need to be victorious. We will not be oppressed or exploited forever. The Kingdom of God will level all playing fields. We will have peace and prosperity, joy and freedom, safety and security for all eternity.

The Lord Himself will take up residence with His people and provide all our needs even before we ask Him. He will make certain that we are healthy, happy and prosperous. Our mortal bodies will be transformed and we will live forever free of disease, decay and death. We will give the Lord all the honor, glory and thanks that He deserves.

We will one day be a praise on the earth, instead of outcasts. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and reward us for ushering in His Kingdom. We will rule and reign with Jesus Christ and judge both men and angels. The Lord will appoint us as teachers, judges and overseers in His everlasting Kingdom, and we will even be kings and priests of our God.

John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:”

We are sons of God with eternal destinies to fulfill. We have to take back our authority over all matters in the earth before the Lord will usher in His eternal Kingdom. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that interfere or impede our progress and establish order and stability on the earth.

Our words will be our weapons for warfare. We will bind all demonic efforts that stand in the way of the preaching of the Gospel. We will loose blessings to all men, as we heal the sick and cast out demons. We will even raise the dead back to life again, just as Jesus Christ Himself once did.

All world governments will be restructured and reorganized to line up with Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality. We will decree love and unity for all of mankind. We will command all of creation to line up with the Word of God and be restored to its original beauty and balance.

The Kingdom of God promises to be the answer to all of the problems of mankind. There will be peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity for all who dwell there. All men will walk as brothers and enjoy one another’s companionship, free of conflict for all eternity.

The Lord Himself will take up residence with us and provide all our needs in abundance, as He has promised. We will have the heathen for our inheritance and rule and reign with Jesus Christ Himself. We will judge both men and angels and be just rulers and capable teachers of all men.

We will be governors and overseers of God’s people to make certain that Kingdom principles are continuously enforced. We will even be kings and priests of God and teach others how to worship Him. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and restore all that has been taken from us.

Justification By Faith

Romans 3:22-26 “Even the righteousness of God [which is] by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, [I say], at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.”

There is no way any man can be righteous in his own strength or through the merits of his works. We have all fallen short of the glory of God and inherited iniquity from Adam as our forefather. We are justified by our faith in Christ – and by that alone. Even though He was totally perfect and without sin Himself, Christ died in atonement for our sins so that we don’t have to suffer the penalty of death.

Jesus became a curse for us, so that we could be blessed with His righteousness. We have been set free from the law of sin and death and are released to life and light in Christ Jesus. We are now more than conquerors through Him. Due to His victory over sin, death and the grave, we can overcome the world, our flesh and the devil and prevail in all matters on the earth, as we are ordained to do.

We are the sons and daughters of God if we believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We have eternal callings and divine destinies to fulfill. The Lord has give us dominion over the entire earth, and we must prepare the way for Christ to return by ushering in the Kingdom of God. We will preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again as He once did.

Philippians 3:9 “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:”

We must fully surrender to the Lord and appropriate the righteousness of Christ Himself through our faith. We should keep all of the commandments and walk in love, as we have been taught to do. If we sin and miss the mark, we must be quick to repent of all unrighteousness and be reconciled to God once again. If we are sincere, He will restore us to right standing with Him as if we had never sinned.

None of us can be righteous and holy without the operation of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We need the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us, and fill us with all good spiritual gifts with which we can serve others. So too, we need spiritual fruit to manifest in our lives that are like the attributes of God Himself. We should have faith, love, peace and joy. We must be gentle and good, meek, temperate and longsuffering.

When Christ returns, He should find us imitating His laid down life and doing His work. We will pick up His ministry where He left off and bring in the full end-time harvest of souls, as we are ordained to do. We will draw all men to the Lord by our godly example. We will walk in a full anointing of His very own power and authority, as long as we are sanctified for His use in ushering in His Kingdom.

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

We are no longer separated from our God. Christ died to restore us to right standing with the Father for all of eternity. We are justified by our faith in Him and at peace with God for all time. We enjoy unmerited favor or grace with Him because of our faith in the atoning work of His Son. We are actually joint-heirs with Christ to all the promises of God.

The Kingdom of God is our reward for righteousness. If we have faith in God, we will inherit all the promises that He has made to us. We will have eternal life in His very presence, free of disease and death. We will experience peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom. The Lord will take vengeance on all our enemies and restore all that we have lost.

Those of us who have served the Lord in ushering in His Kingdom will receive many rewards for our faithfulness. He will boast of us to all creation and appoint us as kings and priests for His people. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We will judge both men and angels and even rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world.

Our Faith In God

Romans 10:17 “So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

If we wish to have a strong faith that pleases God and changes the circumstances in our lives, then we must be well rooted and grounded in the Word of God. We should seek fundamental, Biblical teaching and appropriate sound doctrine. We must adhere to all the Lord’s commandments to us and sanctify ourselves of all known sinfulness.

We should be doers of the Word of God and not hearers only. It goes without saying, that we must love the Lord with all our strength and treat others with affection and respect. We have to be obedient to the will of God for our lives and be at peace with all men wherever possible. We should seek the Lord’s guidance and serve Him at all times.

It is critical that our faith be pure and undefiled. We cannot afford to entertain the doctrines of demons or any traditions of men. Faith comes by hearing, reading and speaking the true, unadulterated Word of God. All false gospels must be avoided or we will be led into chaos, confusion and spiritual destruction instead of true Christian liberty.

Hebrews 10:22-23 “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of [our] faith without wavering; (for he [is] faithful that promised;”

We now know the truth and should walk in the light of it at all times. We have been fully redeemed from our sins, baptized in Christ and filled with the Holy Spirit. We are new creatures in Christ and joint-heirs with Jesus Himself. We are the actual sons and daughters of almighty God; we have eternal callings and divine destinies to fulfill on the earth.

It is critical that we embrace our responsibilities and help to usher in the Kingdom of God, as we have been called to do. The Gospel must be preached to men, women and children in all the nations of the world. It is the Lord’s desire that all have an equal opportunity to be saved to eternal life. We will gather in the full end-time harvest of souls that is required.

If our faith in God is strong, we will have boldness and confidence in our relationship with Him. We can approach the throne of grace without fear, shame or condemnation. Anything that we need will be granted to us, according to His Word and His will for our lives. He has a wonderful plan in place for our total redemption – in spirit, soul and body.

Romans 3:3 “For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

The choice to believe in Jesus Christ and what He did for us is ours, and ours alone. The Lord will never force Himself on us or compel us to have faith. If we do not believe in God or what He has provided for us, we will perish. Our faith in God leads us to eternal life; it has powerful life-changing effects for us. No longer in darkness, we walk in the light as the very sons of God.

Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will eventually be saved. Then and only then, will heaven be ushered in to the earth realm to pave the way for the return of Jesus Christ Himself. He will judge all men and angels to determine who will enter His Kingdom and enjoy all of its blessings. Those who have believed in Christ and been obedient will be blessed.

All those who deny Jesus or have been deliberately rebellious, will be punished in the lake of fire. Satan will be banished to the bottomless pit. There will be nothing evil or defiling that ever enters the Kingdom of God. All residents there will have peace and prosperity, without fear and molestation. We will be given brand new, resurrection bodies that are free of disease and decay.

The dead in Christ will be raised from the dead and judged, as well. All the righteous will dwell with the Lord Himself for all of eternity. He will supply all our needs from the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. There will be no poverty and lack, no oppression or exploitation. All men will share equally in abundance; we will enjoy our lives in a veritable paradise on earth.

1Corinthians 2:5 “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

Genuine faith defies reason and replaces human logic. It takes us into the supernatural realm of unlimited possibilities. If we remain focused on God and all His promises to us, we will see our hope in Him manifest as reality. Without God, we can do nothing, but with Him all things are possible to us.

The wisdom of men cannot be compared with real faith in God. Our faith far surpasses all that we believe in the natural. It is powerful for generating positive results in our lives that could never be accomplished through man-made efforts. If we have sincere faith, then we will see astounding manifestations.

Every time we have an answer to prayer it is a miracle of faith for us. The unreachable becomes real and attainable, simply because we have trust in God and His limitless power to provide all of our needs. If our faith is strong and does not waver, we will see heaven itself come to the earth with all its blessings.

God’s people will be the focal point of His attention. He will fellowship with us intimately. The Lord will provide all our needs even before we ask Him. We will enjoy good health and longevity, endless peace and unlimited prosperity, total safety and security, perpetual joy and complete freedom for all eternity.

If we have been devoted to the Lord and His people, we will be generously rewarded in His Kingdom. He will boast of us to all creation and appoint us as kings and priests. We will share in Christ’s honor and glory; rule and reign with Him; and judge both men and angels to see if they have been righteous.

We will experience life in a veritable paradise on the earth, in the very presence of our loving God. He will restore all that has been taken from us and reward our faithfulness to Him. He will avenge all wrongs done to us and punish our enemies. We will have a just recompense for all our trials, pain and suffering.

Living By Faith

Habakkuk 2:4 “Behold, his soul [which] is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.”

The proud and haughty will never enter into the Kingdom of God. Those who puff themselves up in their own accomplishments and exalt themselves among men can never please God. He desires that we have humble, sincere hearts that seek to serve Him and His people. He measures our righteousness by our faith in Christ, and by that alone.

If we have strong faith we please God. We are not self-serving and arrogant; we are meek and devoted to Him regardless of whether or not we get recognition. We lay down our lives for others and walk as Christ Himself walked the earth. We are uncompromisingly righteous and never fail to love God and others, as we do ourselves.

We are justified only by our faith in Christ and we walk it out in our daily lives. We serve as godly role models to others and have wholesome life styles that reflect the power and glory of God that is at work in us and through us. We are loyal ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and our lives are testimonies to His love, mercy and compassion.

Romans 1:17 “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”

If we walk in real faith we will move mountains and achieve impossible feats for the Lord in the days to come. He wants us to rely totally on Him for everything that we require, whether it be spiritual or temporal. He delights in providing all good things to those who trust in Him. The Lord has promised that He will never leave us or forsake us, and that He will be with us in all that we are called to do.

We can depend on our God to hear all of our prayers for ourselves and for others. He is never too busy to hear our thoughts, nor oblivious to our concerns. He is ever faithful to supply all that we require to lead healthy, happy and prosperous lives. He gives us exceeding abundantly more than we could ever ask or think. He is generous and kind to His people, and we can completely rely on His provision for us.

All of our needs will be met in abundance if we dedicate our lives in humble service to the Lord and His Kingdom. He will supply material needs even before we ask Him. He will give us wisdom and revelation into His eternal plan and purpose for all mankind. All that we must do is be obedient to follow His lead and guidance, and we will see miraculous signs and wonders manifested right before our very eyes.

We will have legions of angels to back us up, as we usher in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will move heaven and earth to accomplish His eternal redemption plan, and we will have all of His support to preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead. We will even restructure world governments and their economies, so that they line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all men.

The entire creation is eager for the revealing of the sons of God, so that we can reverse the chaos, decay and destruction that has been so prevalent since the fall of Adam. We will speak to all of nature and command it to line up with the Word and the will of God. The climate will be positively impacted, so that it is temperate and predictable once again. Plants and animals will all be in total harmony with mankind.

2Corinthians 5:7 “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”

Our faith in God will have to be at its height in the days to come. We will be given assignments that may appear overly difficult to achieve in the natural. However, the Lord will give us His very own anointing power and authority to be successful in all that we do to usher in the Kingdom of God.

He will use ordinary men, women and children to fulfill His eternal redemption plan. All we need do is be sanctified and consecrated for His use. Our age, talent, education and experience will mean nothing. He is seeking those who have total faith and trust in His power to accomplish the impossible.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God all over the earth, so that men everywhere have an opportunity to be saved to eternal life. We will heal the sick and infirm, deliver those who are oppressed by the devil and even raise the dead back to life, just as Jesus Christ Himself once did.

God’s people will take control of all world governments and finances, and establish peace and order on the earth. We will replace all tyrannical leaders with men after the Lord’s own heart. There will be no wars or civil unrest. Men will learn to walk in love or be expelled from the Kingdom of God.

All of creation will be set free from decay and destruction. We will restore all of nature to its original beauty and balance. The climate will be regulated again and all natural disasters will be a thing of the past. We will speak to the plant and animal kingdoms and they will be in harmony with mankind.

The faithful servants of the Lord will destroy all demonic strongholds that impede our progress in ushering in the Kingdom of God. We will deliver all men from demonic oppression and bondage. We will crush Satan underneath our feet and make all Christ’s enemies His footstool – including death.

Faith In Action

James 1:22-25 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth [therein], he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”

We must be doers of the Word of God, and not hearers only. Faith requires action to back it up and help the impossible to manifest in the natural realm. We should put our faith in the forefront of our minds and step out with holy boldness in all that we do. Faith pleases God and He will always support us with His very own power and authority to act in His name.

We will be blessed beyond our wildest imaginings if we walk in faith, instead of fear, doubt and unbelief. That requires courage and patience, but the Lord will always honor our faith-filled intentions. He has divine destinies in mind for us to fulfill in the days ahead. He will never leave us or forsake us, and supplies all that we need to be totally successful.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with power and conviction and bring in the full end-time harvest of souls that is required before heaven can come to the earth realm. We will deliver men everywhere from bondage and afflictions of all types. We will even raise the dead back to life again, if our faith is strong and we put our trust in God alone.

We will challenge all world governments to make certain that they line up with Kingdom principles of righteousness, fairness and justice, and bring peace and order to the earth before Jesus Christ returns. We will speak to all of creation and reverse all its decay and destruction. Plants, animals and the climate will be brought to divine order, and be subject to man.

We will be totally victorious in this life and in the world to come if our faith is strong and we walk in the power of it. There is nothing that will be impossible to us if we have genuine faith in the Lord and all of His promises. We are sons and daughters of almighty God and He expects us to step out in faith and actually walk just as Christ Himself walked the earth.

James 2:14-20 “What [doth it] profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be [ye] warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what [doth it] profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

Faith without corresponding works is a dead faith and is easily stifled when we meet with real life challenges. We must always back our faith up with action. The Lord requires that we show Him deference and respect and love others as we love ourselves. We should activate our faith with good works that humbly minister to all of mankind.

It is not sufficient for us to simply commiserate with others when they are suffering pain or lack of any kind. We should demonstrate our faith in all that we say and do. If they require food and clothing, we should feed and cover them as best we can. If they need shelter, we should help them find safe and decent housing. If they are in need of any kind, we must do our best to meet their needs, as if they were our very own. The law of love will then be fully satisfied and we will be found righteous in the Lord’s eyes.

When we simply give lip service to our faith, we are guilty of hypocrisy and sins of omission. We cannot say that we are followers of Christ, yet fail to serve Him and His people. We must pray for and encourage others, but also do what we can to meet their temporal needs as well. Our surplus then becomes their substance and is multiplied exponentially.

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 may have been the Son of God, but He walked on the earth as a mere man in perfect obedience and selfless service to others. We should imitate His laid down life and finish His ministry, as He has commissioned us to do. We have divine destinies that must be fulfilled or God’s people will suffer oppression and bondage. We should embrace our eternal callings and do the work of Jesus Himself.

We must preach and teach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to men in all the nations of the world to give them hope. It is not the Lord’s desire that anyone perish for lack of hearing the truth. We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders if we put our faith into action. We will heal all the sick and cast our demons of all kinds. We will even raise the dead back to life again, if our faith is strong and does not waver.

When Christ returns, He should find faith on the earth, as He desires. We will all stand in judgment before Him to determine whether we have been righteous and obedient. If we have walked in faith and fulfilled our divine commission, we will receive many blessings and rewards in the Kingdom of God. We will be appointed kings and priests of God, rulers and judges, and share in Christ’s very own honor and glory.

2Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks [be] unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”

Jesus will be with us in all that we do. He has promised to give us His very own anointing power and authority, so that we can destroy all demonic strongholds that impede our progress or interfere with our work. We will restructure all world governments to establish peace and order on the earth. We will even restore all of creation back to its original beauty and balance, as we are destined to do as sons of God.

If our faith is strong and we do not doubt the Lord or our own capabilities, we will operate in dynamic power and authority in the days to come. We will take total dominion over the enemy and destroy all demonic strongholds that hold men in bondage to sin and oppression. We will overcome all evil with good, if we are faithful. We will change the entire earth and prepare the hearts of all men to meet their King.

When Christ returns, He should find His Body and Bride hard at work ushering in the Kingdom of God. Our rewards will be great and the Lord will share His very own honor and glory with us for all of eternity. We will have the heathen for our inheritance. We will judge both men and angels, and rule and reign with Christ Himself. We will even be appointed kings and priests of God, so that we can serve His people.

United In Faith

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.”

Christ was the firstborn of many sons and daughters; we have divine destinies to fulfill for the benefit of all mankind. We are literally the Body of Christ on the earth – His hands, feet and voice. We cannot afford to be in strife or division of any kind. We must try to walk in love, peace and unity with one another, and be obedient to the Lord’s plans for us in the days to come.

Each of us is important in our own individual role in the Body. We take our leadership and direction from Christ Himself as our Head. We emulate His laid down life and only do what He says to do. Even though we have different gifts, He wants us to move as one integrated whole in singularity of purpose. We should be patient and loving to our brothers and sisters in Christ.

We have been given a full measure of faith. We must simply activate it in our lives to see astounding results. We should have boldness and confidence that the Lord will equip and protect us to do everything that is required in the critical days to come. Every man, woman and child on the earth has a divine destiny that will be fulfilled, as we usher in the Kingdom of God.

Ephesians 4:2-3 “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.”

We must not be proud or arrogant; we should prefer others to ourselves. It is critical that we walk in love, peace and unity. We have been given a sacred responsibility, yet we each have different callings that complement the whole Body. We should be patient and forbearing, giving and forgiving at all times. We must be in constant prayer and intercession for one another.

If we are obedient and work together, we will accomplish great things for the Lord. We will take total dominion over all matters on the earth, as He desires. We will tear down demonic strongholds that interfere with us, and release men everywhere from ignorance, oppression and bondage of all kinds. We will glorify our Lord and Savior in all we think, say and do.

We will overcome all evil with good and restore peace and order to the entire world. We will bring in the full end-time harvest of souls and set all captives free. We will usher in the Kingdom of God with power and authority, and share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We are kings and priests in training for reigning, and we will be key players in Kingdom government.

Ephesians 4:13 “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:”

But first, we have our share of growing and maturing in the things of God that we must do. We must take our sanctification to an entirely new level and be uncompromisingly righteous. We cannot deviate from our love walk in any way. We have to imitate Christ and be humble and unselfish in our service to God and others. We cannot be proud, arrogant or hypocritical in any way. We must have a genuine affection for all men, regardless of who they are.

We should eliminate all sources of strife and contention with our brothers and sisters in Christ, and aspire to peace with all men, whenever possible. We have to be vessels consecrated for the Lord’s use, so that the anointing power and authority of Jesus Christ can manifest through us for the benefit of others. We will accomplish great feats for the Lord and usher in His Kingdom with glory, if we are willing and obedient to follow His guidance and direction to us.

He will always have us walk in love and follow the commandments. We cannot be remiss in our behavior, because all men are looking to us for godly role models. We will have to be above and beyond reproach in all that we think, say and do. We cannot be frivolous or self-centered, proud or arrogant. We are being held to impeccably high standards as the sons and daughters of God. We should strive for holiness and perfection, just as God is holy and perfect.

Philippians 1:27 “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”

We must guard our words and line them up with the Word of God, if we wish to see significant breakthroughs in every area of our lives and in the lives of others. We cannot be negative in any way or we will be held accountable for every idle word that we speak. By our words, we are either justified or condemned. We must speak the truth with all men and share our faith as we are led.

Our primary task in the days ahead will be to preach the Gospel to all of mankind. It has inherent power to set them free from all forms of bondage and demonic oppression to eternal life and all of its many blessings. We are ambassadors for the Lord and the Kingdom of God; we have a sacred charge to fulfill Christ’s ministry and take back total dominion in all matters on the earth.

We should fight the good fight of faith in everything that we do. While it may seem that it is often an uphill battle, the Lord knows the end from the beginning and He will never let us down. He will assign legions of ministering and avenging angels to back us up in all that we are called to do. We will have supernatural power given to us to overcome the world, our flesh and the devil for all time.

Faith Decrees

Hebrews 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

The Lord created the entire universe with power-packed words that brought the unseen and non-existent into the natural realm. The world was formed from a spiritual vision, according to God’s specific, intuitive design. Our words that line up with His very own have creative power, as well. We can take our hope and give it substance with words of faith that are spoken according to God’s Word and His will for us.

We are walking, talking spirits – created in the very image and likeness of God. There is a spark of the divine in each and every one of us. We can speak our faith into reality, simply by exercising our God-given power and authority to do so. We can call those things, which be not, as though they already were manifested in the natural realm. Our hope takes wings with our faith spoken through our own mouths.

Faith decrees are powerful for manifesting good. We should purposely guard our tongues and make absolutely certain that what we speak is what the Lord says in any given situation. If we are positive and affirming, we will see good things abound in our situations and circumstances. However, if we speak negatively, that cancels out all our positive decrees and we run the risk of negative things occurring.

Matthew 18:18-19 “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”

The Lord has given us the keys to the Kingdom of God – they are voice activated. Whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever we loose in the way of blessings on the earth is also loosed in heaven. We can have what we speak, both the negative and the positive. We must be very certain that whatever we speak lines up with the Word and with the will of God for our lives.

If any two or more of us agree in prayer, that is powerful for releasing whatever we have requested from the spiritual realm into the natural. Jesus Christ told us that we should be extremely careful what we speak in faith. He will hold us accountable for our words, because they are containers of power and possibility. We should never be careless in our speech, but purposeful and affirming.

So much of what the world speaks is damaging to men and destructive in its nature. We should be cautious that we do not get caught up in popular colloquialisms and slang that unknowingly bring devastation to our lives and the lives of others. We are speaking spirits and our words are powerful for generating good results if we guard and use them wisely to build up, rather than tear down.

If we want good things to manifest in our lives, then we must speak positively to our situations and circumstances. Every negative word cancels out the effect of positive ones. We should speak only light and life to our lives and those of others. We can overcome evil with good in every instance. The Lord Himself will back up our words with His very own power and authority.

Mark 11:22-24 “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].”

Jesus Christ went to great lengths to teach His followers the importance of speaking faith-based words at all times. He wanted us to learn that we can totally rely on God for all of our needs to be met in abundance. If we have faith and it does not turn into fear, doubt or unbelief, we will have whatever we ask of God. He takes particular delight in providing for us, and will never permit us to be ashamed for our faith in Him.

We must always speak words that line up with the Word of God for our lives. We can speak the Word out loud and get astounding results for our efforts. Even if we pray our own heart-felt prayers, we should believe that we receive positive results from them. It is wise to thank the Lord and praise Him in advance for the answers to all our petitions. Praise fertilizes the ground for our prayers to be heard and answered.

Prayer combined with placing a demand on the Word of God that is already written down in Scripture is a powerful duo for manifesting what we want to appear in the natural. The Word of God is filled with all the promises of God, and He wants us to come boldly to the throne of grace and remind Him of what He has told us He will do. We should have total trust and confidence that the Word of God never returns void.

The Lord will always back up His words with powerful manifestations of His goodness. He wants nothing more than that His children appropriate all their rights and privileges. He wants us to rely on Him and lay claim to all that He has for us. His greatest desire is that we be healthy, happy and prosperous in all that we do. We must believe we receive all that we need, and act on that faith as if it were already accomplished.

2Corinthians 4:13 “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;”

The Word of God gets down deep in our hearts the more we are exposed to it. It is the very basis for our faith. Sound doctrine will never leave us questioning the ways and the will of God. The more we study and meditate on the Word of God, the easier it will be for us to speak it over our own lives and see powerful manifestations of it materialize in the natural realm.

If we really know the Word of God and are familiar with all its promises to us, it should be relatively simple for us to speak it with authority. We can take our faith to the next level by speaking it out of our mouths and having others agree with us for positive results. If we truly believe that the Lord has spoken to us, then we should speak faith-based words that line up with His Word to us.

The Word of God never returns to us void. It is powerful for generating miraculous results in both the spiritual and natural realms. We have all been dealt the same spirit of faith, and we are equally responsible to speak our own words that line up with God’s Word. We must never speak negativity, as that neutralizes our power and cancels out the positive words we have spoken.

Decrees With Visualization

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.”

The Lord wants us focused on what is good and beneficial to us. He does not want us to dwell on the negative circumstances that we see all around us. We are to be in the world, but not of it. We should purposely think on wholesome and positive things, so that our mouths will line up with our thoughts and we will see good things manifest in our lives and in the lives of others.

So too, we should use our Holy Ghost imagination and visualize positive outcomes to what we speak in our lives. We can put positive images in our minds, so that we have something concrete that we can refer to in our proclamations. Visualization is meditation taken to its orderly conclusion, so that it generates tangible results that we can actually perceive in our environment.

For example, if I need a good paying job, I should visualize myself already working at it. If I lack a means of transportation, I should see myself driving a nice car or truck. If my body needs healing, I should both visualize and decree myself to be totally healthy. Whatever we put in our mind’s eye and speak out of our mouths will materialize if it lines up with the Word and the will of God.

Job 22:28 “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

We should never speak fear, doubt or unbelief in any of our situations and circumstances, regardless of the temptation to do so. We should decree what God says will happen in our lives. The Word says that He desires that we “prosper and be in good health, even as our souls prosper.” It also says that He will “meet all our needs according to His riches in glory.” It reminds us to “cast our cares on Him, as He cares for us.”

The Scriptures are loaded with God’s promises to us and we should be well familiar with them. If we place a demand on the Word of God, the Lord is extremely pleased. He wants us to put Him in remembrance, so that He can make good on all of His promises to us. He will never allow us to be ashamed for our faith in Him. He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory, if we believe and trust in Him.

If we speak only what God says, we will have whatever we speak materialize. However, if we speak any negativity into our lives, then negative things will indeed manifest. There is life and death in the power of the tongue. Whatever we believe, we will end up speaking. We must know the truth and firmly believe it. Our goal should be to speak life to our situation, and avoid all negativity that might contaminate our faith.

Ephesians 3:19-21 “And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

We have genuine, divine power and authority as the sons and daughters of almighty God. We do not even recognize how very potent our thoughts and words are if they line up with God’s thoughts and words. We can literally have whatever we can see in the spirit and choose to speak into manifestation in the natural realm. Our thoughts and words are containers of power and possibility and should not be taken lightly. We are filled with all the fullness of almighty God Himself through our faith in Christ.

Whatever we visualize and speak will eventually materialize, if it lines up with God’s Word and His will for our lives. We must be very cautious what we see in our mind’s eye and speak into reality. Our future depends upon our putting positive images in our minds and affirmative words in our mouths. We should never see or speak negativity or that will cancel out our positive assertions. Consistent, positive meditation and spiritual decrees will produce miracles of faith in our environment.

We must have a strong vision of what we would like to see demonstrated in our own individual situations and circumstances before we put our faith to work. If we have no goal for our decrees, we will end up speaking carelessly and canceling out all of our positive assertions. We should put productive images in our minds and visualize what we would have manifest in the world around us. If we see positive potential, then we can speak into that and decree it to be generated into actual physical reality.

Proverbs 29:18 “Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he.”

If we will just hold on and trust God for the outcome we desire, we will see awesome results in our lives. He will never leave us or forsake us. Speaking faith-based words, coupled with strong visualization of positive results will produce astounding results. Whatever we believe and envision, plus decree out of our mouths, will eventually manifest as a witness to our faith if it is God’s will for us.

Most people fail because they quit right before they receive their breakthrough. They sabotage their own efforts. The Lord desires that we be persistent in our faith and be patient for our needs to be satisfied. Our victory occurs first in the spiritual realm, and then will materialize for us to see. We must be very certain that we always put positive images in our mind and faith-filled words in our mouths.

Our lives will change as never before and we will realize all of our God-given potential, if we just walk by faith in all our situations and circumstances. We will overcome all things in this life and change our world for the better if we purposely focus on positive thoughts and words. The Lord will always honor our faith and back us up. He wants us to enjoy our lives and prosper in all we think, say and do.

Kingdom Prayers And Decrees

Luke 11:2 “And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.”

Jesus taught us to pray for the coming of the Kingdom of God and decree it to be ushered into the earth. The Lord’s Prayer is our model for prayer that produces results. We should address the Lord with respect and affection and make our needs known. If they coincide with the Word and the will of God Himself, we will see positive results generated in our circumstances.

Our God is eager to exercise His will on the earth, as it is in heaven. But we have to petition Him to intervene here. He has given the earth to men, and He will not violate our free will by sovereignly imposing Himself or His way of doing things on this planet. If we truly desire that the Kingdom of God manifest in our generation, then we must pray it into existence.

We cannot be passive and simply wait for evil to overcome us. We will have to proactively seek divine intervention in our affairs before they get completely out of hand. We should pray the Lord’s Prayer with a new fervor, visualize what we want to occur on the earth and actually decree that the Kingdom of God is ours and will be introduced to this realm as quickly as possible.

Revelation 12:10-11 “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

Positive decrees and mental images are powerful for changing things in the natural realm. The devil does not want us to know the promises of God, nor to claim them for ourselves. He wants our minds blinded to the truth, so that more chaos and confusion ensue. If he can keep us in the dark, then we will not exercise our rights and privileges as we should, and he will remain the ruler of this world.

The truth is that Christ has defeated him for all time with His victory over sin, death and the grave. We have our dominion over all things in the earth restored to us. The only thing that is preventing our total victory is ignorance. We can prevail over the devil and all his minions simply by opening our mouths and decreeing the Word of God. Satan is already a defeated foe and we should announce that to him.

We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil by the Blood of Jesus Christ and the words of our testimony. Christ bought back our redemption once and for all, and we have all the rights and privileges of righteousness available to us at any time we choose to exercise them. We should speak faith-based words that defeat the enemy for all time and decree heaven’s way of doing things instead.

Daniel 7:18 “But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.”

The Bible tells us that the sons of God will possess the Kingdom of God and deliver it to Jesus Christ for His rule and reign for all of eternity. Heaven will be ushered into the earth very soon now and we will forcibly seize all of our promises and see them manifest right before our very eyes. No devil in hell will be able to prevent us from taking the Kingdom and claiming it as our birthright.

We must know our rights and privileges and exercise them, if we wish to see the Kingdom materialize in our lives. We should stand on God’s promises to us and speak what He tells us to speak. Christ was a total success on the earth because He listened for guidance and direction from the Father. Jesus will lead and guide us into taking possession of the Kingdom of God, as we are destined.

If we are willing and obedient, we will soon see dramatic changes on the earth as the Kingdom absorbs all earthly governments. We will be kings and priests of God and rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world. We will have the heathen for our inheritance and enforce Kingdom principles of love, peace and unity. There will be no more violence, war, greed or exploitation.

All men will dwell together as brothers or be expelled from our presence for all of eternity. The Lord Himself will take up residence with His people and ensure our safety and security, joy and freedom. There will be peace and prosperity for all of God’s people. We will live forever in our new, resurrection bodies and give the Lord all the praise, honor, glory and gratitude that He so deserves.

Strength In Faith

1Corinthians 16:13 “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.”

Our faith can move mountains in our lives. We must learn to stand fast in our faith and be strong, knowing that the Lord will never let us down. It is always tempting to give up and take matters in our own hands. We must realize that through our own efforts, we can do nothing. However, with faith in God and His provision for us, all things are indeed possible.

We should guard our faith, knowing that it will sustain us through all sorts of tests, trials and tribulation. If we are persistent and patient, we will see our breakthroughs manifest in the natural realm. Faith is a spiritual weapon – if we employ it as such. We can use our faith to combat all fear, doubt and unbelief that come at us through the efforts of the enemy.

With a strong faith, we are encouraged and our confidence in the Lord grows. We have peace, hope and expectancy for our future. We can be bold and put our faith into action, so that it manifests in the world around us. If we have a solid faith in God and His ability to provide all that we need to be successful, we will see astounding results in our circumstances.

2 Corinthians 1:24 “Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.”

Without faith, we can accomplish nothing in our lives. Our human efforts will always fail us, despite our good intentions. However, with a strong faith in God and His omnipotent power, we can change our situations and circumstances and be victorious in this life and in the world to come. We must simply take a strong stand in faith and refuse failure of any kind.

The Lord will never let us down if we have a deep, abiding faith in Him. He wants us to rely on Him for everything good in our lives. If we abandon all our self-centeredness and forego our stubborn independence, He will accomplish great things in us and through us for the benefit of all mankind. We will see His Kingdom ushered in on the earth in this generation.

We can appropriate the faith of God Himself and operate in His divine power and authority to be successful in all that we do. If we purposely believe God and all of His promises to us, we will see supernatural results. We can overcome the world, our flesh and the devil, if we believe that we can. Nothing will be impossible to us if we have faith and operate in it.

Proverbs 30:5 “Every word of God [is] pure: he [is] a shield unto them that put their trust in him.”

If God says something, we can count on the fact that it is attainable to us. His Word has made provision for all of our situations and circumstances. He has every contingency covered with His wisdom and knowledge. All we must do is exercise faith and be patient for it to manifest in our individual lives.

We will never be disappointed if we have faith in God and wait upon His provision to us. He has promised to be with us always; He will never leave us or forsake us. If we trust in Him, we will never be ashamed or disappointed. He will supply all we require to be healthy, happy and prosperous.

So too, He has given us the power to pray and decree good things in our lives. We should speak faith-based words that line up with His very own and believe that we receive everything that we ask for in Jesus’ name. The Lord is ever ready to hear from us and He responds to all of our requests as He promised.

If our faith is strong, we will see miracles, signs and wonders manifest in the days to come. We will walk in full power and authority and tread on serpents, as we are ordained to do. All of creation will be positively impacted by our faith and we will bring peace, order and stability to the entire earth.

The Lord will back us up in everything that we do to implement His eternal redemption plan. He will assign legions of ministering angels to assist us as we usher in the Kingdom of God. He will protect us from all harm and preserve us holy and blameless until the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Jude 1:20-21 “But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”

I like to think of praying in the Holy Spirit as a “secret weapon” that can be used to work miracles of faith. If we will spend time in sincere, heart-felt prayer in our spiritual prayer language that has been given to us with our baptism in the Holy Spirit, we will develop a much deeper relationship with the Lord. When we pray in the Spirit, our human spirit communicates direct with God. We share our thoughts and feelings and He communicates back to us, so that we can understand Him.

There is no distraction or demonic interference, when we pray in the Spirit. The Holy Spirit of God Himself makes intercession for us and we hear back from God clearly and distinctly. Our spiritual prayer language is like a secret code that no demon can penetrate. We receive divine revelation as a result of praying in tongues. We are strengthened and edified when we hear from God, and our time spent praying in the Holy Spirit is always worthwhile to us.

No matter what we do, we should always seek the Lord’s guidance and direction. We can pray with our spiritual prayer language and with our human understanding. The Lord will always lead us in the path we should take if we take time to pray and ask Him for His input. In the days ahead, it will become increasingly important that we hear from God continually and respond immediately to His direction. Praying in the Spirit will give us quick and full access to Him.

Our communication with the Lord will be vital to our success in the critical days that lie ahead. We will require clear, precise instruction for all that we are called to do. This is new, uncharted territory for us and we must be totally informed and obedient or we will face some serious difficulties. Our faith will have to be at its height as we usher in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will never leave us or forsake us. He will be with us till the end of this world, as we know it.

Faith With Patience

2Thessalonians 1:4 “So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:”

We have suffered a great deal for our faith over the years, and the Lord has seen all our frustration, pain and suffering. He knows that we have done our best to preserve our beliefs and share them with others. He will not permit us to be harassed and oppressed for much longer. We will have a just recompense for our devotion to Him and to His Son, Jesus Christ.

Despite the persecution and tribulation that we have experienced, we should be confident and trusting. The Lord knows the end from the beginning and He will not allows us to be ashamed for our faith. If we do not quit, but persevere in love, righteousness and service to Him and others, we will receive many blessings and rewards in the Kingdom of God one day soon.

He will take vengeance on all our enemies and boast of us to all creation. We will be vindicated before men and angels. All evil will be removed far from us when we enter in the Kingdom of God. Nothing will in any way harm us or defile life there. We will be blessed for all eternity and have generous rewards for our loyalty and faithfulness to the Lord’s purpose.

Revelation 14:12 “Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”

We should focus on the Lord and all of His promises to us for righteousness. As believers in the Lord, Jesus Christ, we will be blessed if we are obedient and faithful to walk in His ways. We should follow all of the commandments and have a genuine love for the Lord and for others. If we continue to sanctify ourselves and renounce all known sin, we will remain in right standing with our God.

He will supply all of our needs abundantly and protect us from all evil. If we are consecrated for His eternal redemption plan and purpose, He will give us a full anointing in His very own power and authority, so that we can change the earth even before Christ returns to us. We will preach the Gospel to all nations, heal the sick, cast our demons and even raise the dead back to life.

Our focus should be to walk as Christ Himself walked the earth. We should make evangelization our primary goal, so that the full number of souls can be harvested. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life must be called in to the Kingdom of God. When that is accomplished, the Lord will usher heaven into the earth realm, so that we can be together with Him for all eternity.

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

We are now experiencing tests, trials and tribulation as the people of God. These are the birth pangs for the Kingdom of God to be ushered in. This will not be a peaceable takeover of the planet; the devil is attempting to impede our progress and interfere with heaven coming to the earth. He is already a defeated foe, and we will take total dominion over the entire planet, as the Lord plans for us.

We have received the keys to the Kingdom of God. They are voice-activated. Our words that line up with the Word of God will shake the universe itself and cause it to line up with God’s will. We will assume our divine destinies and operate in full power and authority in all that we do. The Lord will imbue us with the anointing of Jesus Christ Himself. We will do what He did and even greater works.

We will not be alone in all of our challenges. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that interfere with our mission. Christ and all His heavenly hosts will back us up, so that we have total success in all of our efforts to usher in His Kingdom. There will be legions of ministering and avenging angels assigned to us. They will be at our beck and call to implement the Word and will of God on the earth.

Fight The Good Fight Of Faith

Jude 1:3 “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”

The world is now shrouded with darkness, despair and destruction. Men are in perpetual bondage to ignorance, sin, poverty, disease and death. Satan – the very enemy of our souls – is wreaking havoc all over the face of the earth, because he knows that his time is short and his defeat is now imminent.

Men everywhere are deceived and without hope for the future. It is up to us to share the truth with them, so that they can be released to the liberty that we have. All creation is waiting for the sons of God to be revealed. We cannot ignore our divine destinies; we have important work to do in the days ahead.

We must earnestly contend for what we believe and communicate our faith to others, so that no man perishes for lack of knowledge. If we spread the Gospel of the Kingdom, we will give others hope and confidence for their future. We should tell them how much God loves them and desires their salvation.

It is our distinct privilege and our sacred responsibility to communicate the Gospel to all the nations of the world, so that the full end-time harvest of souls can be gathered in. Then and only then, will the Lord permit the Kingdom of God to be ushered into the earth with all of its many blessings for believers.

Luke 22:32 “But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.”

We now know the truth and are responsible to walk in the light of it. We must fight the good fight of faith and share what we know and believe with others, so that they can be set free, as we have been. It is the Lord’s desire that no one perish for lack of knowledge of the truth. Evangelism should be our constant goal. We must preach the Gospel to men, women and children everywhere.

It is only through a total faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior that we can be spared from the penalty of sin, which is death. We must repent of all our sins; believe the truth; be baptized in our faith; and establish a personal relationship with Christ. If we do, we will receive eternal life and all of its many blessings. We should also ask Him for the baptism in the Holy Spirit of God.

Our lives will change as never before, as our minds are renewed and our behavior is transformed. We will have our right standing with God fully restored to us, and receive great and precious promises for righteousness. The Lord will blot all of our sin from His memory and actually position us with Christ in heavenly places. We will be the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself.

We will walk in the newness of life and overcome the world, our flesh and the devil. The Kingdom of God will be our inheritance and we will enter into it with joy and gladness forever. If we have been faithful to serve the Lord and His people, He will appoint us as kings and priests. We will judge both men and angels, and rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world, as He planned.

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

The “Greater One” dwells in us, so that we can be victorious. He will provide all of our needs according to His riches in glory. We will have many blessings and eternal rewards for our faith, if we are patient and trust God. He will imbue us with His own anointing power and authority to serve Him and His people.

The Lord will be glorified in the people that are called by His name. He will cause us to be bold and confident, as we fulfill His eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. We will preach the Gospel of peace with power and conviction, heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again.

It is possible for us to overcome the world, our flesh and the devil through the power of God. We will restructure all world governments and their economies to line up with the Word and the will of God. We will speak to all of creation and it will be delivered from death, decay and destruction as it was in Eden.

We will destroy all the works of darkness and take total dominion over everything in the earth. The devil will no longer oppress God’s people or hold them in bondage of any kind. They will be released to receive real Christian liberty as we have, and be empowered to walk in love and righteousness, as they should.

Very soon now, we will usher heaven itself into the earth realm and gather many people into the Kingdom of God for all of eternity. Instead of war and poverty, we will have peace and prosperity. Nothing will in any way harm us or defile life in the Kingdom. We will have safety and security in the presence of God.

1Timothy 6:12 “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”

Our faith should not be static – it is a viable force that impacts us as nothing else can. It should be proactive at all times, so that we can see its benefits. Our faith is a living thing; it should never stop growing and expanding. The more we exercise our faith, the greater the rewards we will have for our efforts. We will see astounding results in our lives if we have faith in God and all of His promises to us.

We must earnestly contend for our faith and share it with others, so that they can receive eternal life and all of its many blessings, just as we have. We have divine destinies as the sons and daughters of God; we should be living testimonies to our faith. We have to preach and teach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God in all of its power, and we will see tremendous changes occur in men’s minds, hearts and spirits.

The entire earth will be positively influenced if we share our faith with all of mankind, as the Lord intends for us to do. We will release others from bondage to lies and deception that hold them hostage. They will see the love, mercy and compassion of God flow to them and their lives will be changed for the better. If they accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, they will inherit eternal life and all its blessings.

Philemon 1:6 “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”

Since we have believed in Jesus Christ, we have become new creatures in Him. We should testify to others how our faith has changed things in our lives. We no longer want and need the things of the world that we once did. Our minds have been renewed and our behavior is being transformed, so that we are more spiritually oriented. We are fulfilling our divine commission and we walk as Christ walked on the earth.

If we are righteous and loving, we will be excellent witnesses to the power of God that operates in us through our faith. We become strong and steadfast, more self-disciplined and grow in the deep things of God. We have the fruit of the Spirit in our lives and our faith is developing until it reaches full spiritual maturity. Our goal is to become holy and perfect, even as God is holy and perfect.

We follow all of the commandments and walk in love with all men. We share what we have with others and put their needs before our very own. We are blessed to be a blessing to others. We are living demonstrations of God’s love, mercy and compassion to all of mankind, and we operate in divine power and authority to destroy demonic strongholds of all kinds that oppress mankind and keep them in bondage.

Staying The Course

Romans 12:17-21 “Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but [rather] give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance [is] mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Our faith is demonstrated in all that we think, say and do. We have to follow all of the commandments and resolve to be sin free. We should strive for total righteousness and walk in love at all times, as Jesus Christ taught us to do. We must learn to forgive and forget all wrongs done to us, and strive for peace with all men wherever possible.

We cannot compromise our faith in any way, if we hope to enter into the Kingdom of God. The Lord insists that we obey all of His moral absolutes and show Him all the devotion, deference and respect that He so rightly deserves. In addition, we must have genuine concern for others and put their needs on an even plane with our own.

It is vital we put our faith into action and minister to others’ needs in a humble, unselfish manner. We have to imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ and serve the Lord in any capacity that He might require. He will imbue us with His very own power and authority to implement His eternal redemption plan; we will overcome all evil with good.

The Lord Himself will vindicate us. He will avenge all wrongs done to us and give us a just recompense for all that we have lost or had stolen from us. We need not take matters in our own hands. The Lord is eminently capable of protecting His people from all of their adversaries. The Kingdom of God will level all playing fields equitably.

Eternal rewards await us in the Kingdom if we are faithful to serve God and others. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and appoint us kings and priests to His people. We will judge both men and angels and enforce Kingdom standards. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory and rule and reign over all the nations of the world.

1Thessalonians 5:24 “Faithful [is] he that calleth you, who also will do [it].”

The Lord will work in us and through us to accomplish His eternal redemption plan and purpose for all of mankind. We will totally renovate the earth and everything in it, to pave the way for the return of Jesus Christ. Everything will be restored to its original design and line up with the Word and the will of God, so we can deliver the Kingdom of God to our Lord and Savior.

Peace and order will prevail on the earth when God’s people rise up in their divine authority. We will restructure all world governments and take back the financial system for the Kingdom of God. Men everywhere will be set free from bondage and oppression of all types. War and unrest will eventually be eliminated on the earth; men will walk in love and unity with one another.

We will simply speak faith-based words that totally renew all of creation. We will restore nature back to its original beauty and balance, as it was in the Garden of Eden. Plant and animal kingdoms will be in harmony with each other and subject to our dominion once again. There will be no climatic disturbances that cause any more devastation and destruction on the earth.

2Timothy 4:7-8 “I have fought a good fight, I have finished [my] course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them that love his appearing.”

If our faith is strong and we walk in the power of it, we will prepare the entire earth for the return of Jesus Christ and make all His enemies His footstool. When He returns He should find us doing His work, as He commissioned us to do. We must preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to all of mankind, so that every man, woman and child has an equal opportunity to be saved and baptized to eternal life.

We should heal the sick of all their afflictions, and set men free from oppression and bondage of all kinds. We will even raise the dead back to life once again, and destroy all demonic strongholds that interfere with our work or try to deter the coming of the Kingdom of God. We will crush Satan underneath our feet and take full dominion in all matters on the earth, as the Lord has ordained for us.

The entire planet will soon line up with the Word and the will of God. There will be peace, order and stability as norms for living. Kingdom principles of righteousness and justice will prevail for all mankind. No one will be greedy or wicked; all men will learn to walk in love and unity, as we are supposed to do. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will then be free to return to us in all of His glory.

The Lord will be pleased with us and we will inherit all the blessings of the Kingdom of God. He will restore all that has been taken from us. He will boast of us to all creation and we will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We will judge both men and angels and receive the heathen for our inheritance. We will be appointed kings and priests of God to rule and reign with Christ Himself.

Faithful And True

Revelation 19:11 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.”

Christ will soon return to receive His Kingdom on the earth for all of eternity. However, He will not come as a meek and mild man or the Lamb of God this time. He has vengeance in His heart to destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness. There will be no evil left on the earth to harm mankind or defile us in any way. Christ will vanquish it for all time in the wrath of His coming.

Our Lord and Savior will not tolerate any evil in His everlasting Kingdom. He will root out anything that defiles His people in any way. He will bind Satan in the bottomless pit and banish all the rebellious to the eternal lake of fire. Everything that remains will be unshakeable. Only peace, love and unity will prevail in the Kingdom of God for all of eternity.

The Lord has seen all the pain and suffering of His people; there is a just recompense in store for us. The Kingdom of God will level all playing fields and enforce justice in the government of God on the earth. The last will be first and the first will be last. The meek and humble will inherit the earth, not the strong and powerful. Only the righteous and faithful will enter the Kingdom.

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

We should have hope and confidence that the Lord will keep His promises to us and reward our faith in Him. He will restore all that has been taken from us and vindicate all wrongs done to His people. We will no longer be oppressed and exploited. He will defend our cause and give us restitution for all the pain and suffering that we have endured.

Ours is a fair and just God, and He will not tolerate any iniquity or inequity on the earth. All men who are eligible to enter the Kingdom of God will be treated fairly. We will share in all the vast resources of the universe. The Lord will meet all of our needs, both spiritual and temporal. We will dwell in peace and unity with one another forever.

We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil and be joint-heirs with Christ to all the Kingdom blessings. There will be peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security for all of God’s people. We will receive praise, honor and glory for our faithfulness and rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world.

Revelation 12:10 “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”

Satan will be cast down and banished to the bottomless pit, so that he can no longer accuse or oppress God’s people. His dominion over the earth ceases and all of his demonic assignments are cancelled. There will be no evil that disturbs the peace and serenity of the Kingdom of God. It will be expelled for all time, since the Lord Himself will take up residence with us and no evil can co-exist in His presence.

Heaven will soon be ushered into the earth realm for all the world to see, as we have been promised. Jesus Christ will rule and reign with a rod of iron to maintain Kingdom integrity and to enforce godly principles of peace, righteousness, fairness and justice for all men. We will one day dwell with both angels and men and give the Lord all the praise, honor and glory that He so rightly deserves.

Life will be a veritable paradise for us; we are returning to the Garden of Eden, with no downside this time. We will receive all the blessings of eternal life for our faithfulness and devotion to the Lord and His people. In addition, He will generously reward us for our humble service, and even appoint us kings and priests of God. We will rule and reign with Christ and have the heathen for our inheritance forever more.

Judgment Of Our Faith

2Corinthians 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad.”

There is a fair and just judgment coming one day very soon. Jesus Christ will determine who among us is righteous and will inherit His Kingdom and who deserves punishment in the lake of fire. He will not compromise godly standards in any way. We will all be held accountable for the works that we have done in the flesh, whether they be righteous or unrighteous.

Christ will judge men and angels, the living and the dead, the church and the nations. All God’s creatures will be scrutinized and evaluated to see if they meet His expectations. Only those who have followed all the Lord’s commandments and walked in love and obedience will enter into the Kingdom of God. There will be nothing and no one that defiles permitted in.

If our faith has been strong and we walked in the power of it, we will be deemed righteous in God’s eyes. We will receive eternal rewards for our loyalty and devotion in serving Him and His people. Christ will share His very own honor and glory with us for all of eternity. Our future will be totally secure and we will have countless blessings to enjoy in His very presence.

Hebrews 10:30-31 “For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

We should walk circumspectly now, so that we will be found acceptable to the Lord and inherit His Kingdom, as we have been promised. We should judge ourselves, so that we do not have to be judged by God. It is not too late to make a mid-course correction. We still have the opportunity to repent and renounce all sin and be restored to right standing with God; He is infinitely merciful and patient for us to turn towards Him and be converted.

Our efforts for our faith will not be in vain. The Lord will restore all that we have lost over the years and compensate us generously for our pain and suffering in the flesh. He will reward all our service to Him and praise us before men and angels. If we are faithful and righteous, we will have an eternal inheritance in the Kingdom of God. No man or devil will ever be able to steal our birthright ever again. We will be fully compensated for all of our efforts.

The Lord, Jesus Christ, will defend our cause and enforce justice on the earth, as He has promised us that He will. He will not tolerate any evil in or around His people. We must sanctify ourselves or be expelled from His presence. We cannot compromise our righteousness or our love walk in any way. The Lord will not be persuaded to lower His standards of judgment. Only those who obey the commandments and walk in love will receive eternal blessings.

Luke 18:7-8 “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

Very soon now, Christ will return as the Lion of Judah, the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He has heard all our cries for relief from bondage and oppression and He will intervene to bring justice and equality to the earth realm. We will not be persecuted for our faith forever; the Lord has a perfect plan in place for leveling all playing fields. He will destroy all evil from the earth.

The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and punish the ungodly, who have injured others in any way. He will not tolerate iniquity of any kind, nor permit those who are selfish and unloving to enter into His Kingdom. We will be held accountable for every thought, word and deed. Our faith has to be pure and undefiled before God, and our righteousness unfailing.

Christ will reward the loyal faithfulness of His people. Those of us who have overcome sin and evil will inherit His everlasting Kingdom with Him. We will share in His very own honor and glory, and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. We will not be ashamed for our faith; we will have a generous compensation for our unselfish service to the Lord and His people.

Rewards Of Faith

Galatians 3:22 “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.”

We have all fallen short of the glory of God, but through our faith in Jesus Christ and all that He did for us, we are redeemed from the curse of the law and its penalty for our sin – which is death. We are no longer condemned; we now have the promise of eternal life and all its blessings in the Kingdom of God. Our right standing with God has been restored for all time; we have become sons of God.

Our role is to maintain our righteousness at all times and to serve the Lord unselfishly in ushering in His Kingdom. We have a sacred responsibility to be of service to God and His people in these last days. The fate of many is in our hands. Our goals should be to fight the good fight of faith and overcome all demonic strongholds that would interfere with our work or impede the coming of the Kingdom.

Very soon now, our redemption will be total and complete. When Christ returns, He will change our vile bodies that are susceptible to disease and death to glorious, resurrection forms that are like His very own. The dead in Christ will rise first and we will all be changed in the twinkling of an eye and be like Him in every way. Our new bodies will live forever in the very presence of God Himself.

Hebrews 6:12 “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”

If our faith is strong and does not waver, we will soon see our God face-to-face, as He has promised us. He will dwell with us for all eternity as our Creator Father. All our needs will be met in abundance, both spiritual and temporal. We will all know the Lord – from the least to the greatest of us. His laws will be written in our minds and hearts, and we will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, as He desires.

The Lord will actually take up residence with us in the Kingdom of God. He will take a personal interest in our lives and fellowship intimately with us, as He has always desired to do. He wants to be our Father and lavish us with both spiritual and temporal gifts for all of eternity. There will be nothing good that we lack in the Kingdom; we will be richly rewarded for our faith and devotion to our God.

He will supply all of our needs from the vast resources of the universe. He will make certain that we have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity. All men will dwell in love and unity with one another and enjoy their lives. Everything that we have lost or had stolen will be restored to us in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will not permit His people to be robbed of their blessings any longer.

Matthew 25:21 “His lord said unto him, Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”

Those of us who have served the Lord will receive great rewards for our faithfulness. He will boast of us to all creation and take vengeance on all our enemies. We will be appointed kings and priests of God and rule and reign with Christ Himself over all the nations of the world.

Christ will share His very own honor and glory with us. We will judge both men and angels and have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth. We will assist the Lord in His Kingdom government and enforce principles of fairness, equality and justice for all time.

The Lord will make our names a praise on the earth and recompense us for all our devoted service to Him. We will have beautiful homes and enjoy our families for all generations. We will have all our needs met in abundance and live forever in intimate fellowship with our God.

We will lack no good thing in the Kingdom of God. Our faith will produce many blessings and eternal rewards for us. The Lord will make certain that we share in all the wealth that the universe has to offer us. All our needs, both temporal and spiritual, will be fully satisfied for all eternity.

Chapter 6 – A Call To Glory

 

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

Many believers are expecting a worldwide revival to take place in these last days, as we eagerly wait for the return of Jesus Christ. Still others are expecting to be raptured out before things get any worse. They are certain that the Lord plans on evacuating us from the earth in the near future. The truth is obvious – the Lord is waiting for us to assume our divine destinies as the Body of Christ and take back total dominion over the earth, so we can usher in His everlasting Kingdom!

We have finally reached that period in time when the power and glory of God will manifest to attract men everywhere to the truth of the Gospel. The people of God will be filled with His glory, as we fight the good fight of faith. Ordinary men, women, and even children, will be used by the Lord to bring heaven itself to the earth realm. We will preach the Word of God so that many can be set free and work miraculous signs and wonders for the benefit of all mankind.

The entire earth will be impacted for good in the days to come. Satan will no longer reign as the ruler of this world. We will use our God-given power and authority to set matters straight once and for all time. He is already a defeated foe and we will bruise him underneath our feet, as it is written. The sons of God will overcome all evil with good and glorify our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Everything that we do will facilitate the coming of the Kingdom of God.

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

The people of God will shine with the brightness of His glory in the days to come. We will be sources of light in a darkened world that is in despair and deception. All men will flock to us to determine the secret of our strength. We will magnify our God in all that we think, say and do. Others will imitate our faith and yearn for the freedom that we have. We will break many through to salvation and baptize them in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, so that the full end-time harvest of souls is reaped in its fullness, as God intends.

This will be a powerful show of awesome glory with an eternal purpose. Everything that the Body of Christ does will promote Kingdom principles and minister to God’s people for their welfare. We will tear down demonic strongholds that interfere with our work and set men free, as the Lord desires. We will heal the sick, cast our demons and even raise the dead, as Christ Himself did when He walked the earth. Men everywhere will be compelled to take notice of our God in all of His glory, as it is reflected in His people.

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

The Lord has anointed us for a very specific purpose. We are instruments of change in a sick and dying world. We will rescue all of mankind from total destruction and pave the way for the Kingdom of God to be ushered into the earth. In the days ahead, we will walk as Christ Himself walked the earth. The Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached with power and conviction. Men everywhere will be set free in the truth and delivered from their bondage to sin and demonic oppression of all kinds.

All world governments will be reorganized and restructured to line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all. We will establish peace and order on the earth, so that Christ can return to rule and reign as a righteous King. We will restore all of creation back to its original beauty and balance. Pollution will be a thing of the past; the climate will be regulated so that there are no more natural disasters; and the plant and animal kingdoms will once again be in harmony and subject to our dominion.

The world will never be the same; we are going back to our beginning in a new and improved Garden of Eden. We will implement God’s way of doing things on the earth, and all evil will be abolished. The Lord Himself will come and take up residence with us for all of eternity. He will be our God and we will be His people who are called by His holy name. All men will ultimately know the Lord and worship Him in Spirit and in truth or be permanently expelled from His Kingdom to the eternal lake of fire.

The Lord Glorifies Those He Can Trust

1Samuel 2:8 “He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, [and] lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set [them] among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth [are] the LORD'S, and he hath set the world upon them.”

The Lord anoints and only He appoints who will be instrumental in ushering in His Kingdom. Many who are first now, will be last in the Kingdom of God. He takes particular delight in exalting the humble and debasing the proud. There are many who think that they are righteous and in good standing with God, but He will always choose the foolish of the world to confound the wise.

This is not about religion. Nor is it about lip service given to faith in God. The Lord desires a people who are after His own heart. He wants us to be bold, confident, humble yet powerful. He will only choose those who are pure in spirit and contrite in heart to represent Him. Our God is not mocked; He wants a people that are focused on love and righteousness and obedient to Him.

He has specific destinies in mind for each of us. All that we need to do is seek His guidance and direction, and circumcise our hearts to be totally devoted to Him and His people. The Lord will prepare and equip us for all that we are asked to do. He will give us a full anointing in His power, once He comes to trust our judgment and our motives; only the pure in heart will serve their God.

The hypocritical and the judgmental will never represent the Lord. He wants men attracted to our faith, not criticized and condemned for their sin. He disapproves of controlling, religious spirits that turn others off and drive men away from Him. He will have a people who serve Him that truly love and accept others as they are. It is His greatest desire to be reconciled with all of humanity.

John 7:18” He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him”.

The Lord hates rebellion; He is totally vexed with disobedience. He blesses us in so many ways that the very least that we can do in return is to obey Him and make a sacrificial offering of our lives. We have a special calling and a divine destiny to fulfill. We must seek His guidance and direction to us, and be committed to His eternal redemption plan and purpose for all of mankind.

Our God is not impressed by pretended piety. He hates pride and arrogance of all kinds. He wants a people that are uncompromisingly righteous and loving to serve Him in attracting all men to our faith. We have unique roles that must be fulfilled in the days ahead and we should not shirk our responsibilities. If we are unwilling or unable to serve the Lord, He will find others to cooperate with His plan and purpose.

If we do accept our divine callings and serve the Lord faithfully, we will be glorified in all that we think, say and do. He will boast of us to all creation and take vengeance on all of our enemies. We will have a generous recompense for all of our trouble and share in all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. Our names will soon become a praise on the earth for all of eternity.

Psalm 64:10 “The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.”

The Kingdom of God itself is based on righteous, peace and joy. Not everyone who wishes to do so will enter into the Kingdom. Only those who are meek, humble and sincere in their love for God and others will dwell there and reap its eternal blessings. God will only fellowship with those who love and obey Him. Those committed to evil of any kind will be excluded for all eternity.

Jesus Christ warned us that only those who do the will of the Father can enter in to the Kingdom of God. The Lord wants a people that are totally submitted to Him. Anyone who is proud, disobedient or questions His judgment will be rejected. He also said that we should become as little children and be pure and innocent, loving and trusting if we wish to eventually dwell in His presence.

If we are upright in heart, we will have supernatural joy and gladness in the Lord. Everything that we do in the critical days ahead will be done voluntarily and with devotion for Him and His people. We will win many souls to the truth and accomplish great things for the Kingdom of God. The Lord will honor and glorify us for all that we do on His behalf and appoint us as kings and priests.

He will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. He will take an active interest in our lives and fellowship intimately with us for all of eternity. We will judge both men and angels and rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world. We will have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth and teach all men how to walk in love and peace.

God Is Glorified In Us

Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

The good news of the Kingdom of God will be preached with power and conviction, so that our God is glorified in us. We will baptize all men, women and children who wish to be saved. People everywhere will have an equal opportunity to hear the truth. No one will perish for lack of knowledge or from failure of the Gospel to be preached.

We will have the distinct privilege of gathering many to the Lord in His end-time harvest of souls.

We must show love and sensitivity to all men and help them restore their relationship with their God. We have to assure them that He loves them despite their sin and encourage them to embrace the truth, so that they can enter into His Kingdom.

The Lord will be glorified in all that we say and do in the days that lie ahead, as we usher heaven into the earth. We will perform miraculous healings in His name and deliver many who are afflicted and oppressed of the devil. We will even raise the dead back to life, as a demonstration of God’s love, mercy and compassion for all of His people.

John 17:22-23 “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”

Jesus Himself prayed for us that we would all be glorified and unified with Him in the Body of Christ. He wants us walking in total love and unity, as we usher in His Kingdom on the earth. We will accomplish a great deal more working cooperatively, than if we functioned alone. If we are to be entrusted with Christ’s very own anointing power and authority in the days ahead, we must work together with Him as our Commander-In-Chief.

The Body of Christ will commence work where His ministry left off. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom and heal the sick to restore them to wholeness. We will deliver all captives of demonic oppression free from their bad habits and iniquity. We will even raise the dead back to life again, as Christ Himself did. We will also reorganize world governments to establish peace and order, and restore all of creation to its original beauty and harmony.

Jesus Christ will be glorified in His people and be able to totally restructure the entire earth, as He desires. He will work in us and through us to accomplish great things and usher heaven’s way of doing things into the earth realm. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that impede our progress and help to eradicate all evil off the face of the planet. Soon there will be nothing and no one that defiles or oppresses God’s people ever again.

1Peter 4:14 “If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy [are ye]; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.”

We have taken a bad rap over the years for our faith in God. We have been objects of ridicule and scorn, just as Christ Himself was when He walked the earth. We have had to contend for our beliefs in a world darkened by sin and deception, yet we still glorify our God in the midst of chaos.

We are the Body of Christ on the earth. We do not cull the favor of men; we are here to glorify our God, and Him alone. We walk in love and unity with Christ as our Head and we accomplish miraculous signs and wonders in His name. We impact all of mankind and wins souls to our God.

We know the truth and it cries out to be heard. We will not be persecuted forever; the Lord has a perfect plan in place for our redemption. Very soon now, the entire earth will be changed and the people of God will usher in His everlasting Kingdom and present it to Jesus Christ on His return.

We will be victorious over all evil and be blessed for all of eternity. The Lord Himself will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters, and we will give Him all the honor and thanks that He so rightly deserves. Our God will be glorified in His people that are called by His name.

We will make certain that all men know the Lord and the power of His might. We will enforce principles of righteousness and justice in our roles as kings and priests of God. The Kingdom of God will level all playing fields and we will rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

The Hope Of Glory

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

We are a people that are totally sold out to the things of God. We are known as the Body of Christ. We are called and chosen for eternal destinies. Those of us who respond to His call, will rise up in the Lord’s very own power and authority and take back the earth and everything in it for the Kingdom of God. The Lord will be able to move through us and actually bring heaven to the earth through our efforts.

The Body of Christ will be comprised of righteous men, women and children from all over the world. We will share our faith with others and work miraculous signs and wonders to attract all men to our God. We will not be deterred or detained in our mission; all of heaven will back us up. The Lord will assign legions of angels to assist His sons and daughters in their efforts to free mankind from bondage.

We will walk as Christ Himself walked – in total integrity of purpose. We will be fully righteous and treat all men with mercy, love and compassion. We will be powerful manifestations of the Lord’s very own glory at work to redeem all mankind from their sins and deliver them of all their iniquities. We will heal all the sick, set captives free of demonic oppression and even raise the dead back to life again.

Romans 5:2-3 “By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;”

The people of God have been robbed and spoiled, tormented and oppressed for their faith for thousands of years now. However, we glory in tribulation because it makes us strong, patient and hopeful for the future. We know the truth; our God will never leave us or forsake us. He will vindicate His people and take vengeance on all of our enemies.

The Body of Christ will be glorified in our God in the days to come, as we usher in His eternal Kingdom. He will give us a full impartation of His very own anointing power and authority, so that we can take back the entire earth for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The world will be reorganized and restructured to adhere to solid Kingdom principles.

We will speak faith-based words that are loaded with power and authority and stake our claim for the Kingdom of God. All world governments and their leaders will be challenged to make certain that they are fair and just to their people. There will be no more war and violence, greed or exploitation. All men will learn to walk in total righteousness.

There will be peace and unity, fairness and justice, stability and balance everywhere. Heaven’s way of doing things will manifest on the earth, so that all men might be set free to live their lives according to God’s eternal redemption plan. Those who are committed to evil will be stringently judged by Christ and expelled from His Kingdom forever.

Colossians 1:27 “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:”

The Lord looks on the inner man of the heart rather than the outward appearance. He knows whom He can trust with His anointing power, and who will obey and serve Him in fulfilling His eternal redemption plan. He will only glorify those who are totally obedient to Him and walk in righteousness and love. He has no tolerance for those who choose to be rebellious in any way.

He wants to teach us is that He alone is sovereign. His standards and moral absolutes are those that will prevail in His Kingdom. He will reward those who diligently seek Him and worship Him in Spirit and in truth. Those who are disobedient and unloving will be on the outside looking in for all eternity; those who love and respect the Lord will be blessed by Him for all time.

Christ in us is the hope of glory. The Body of Christ must imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself, so that we will be suitable vessels for the Lord’s anointing power and authority. Only those who are fully consecrated to the Lord’s eternal redemption plan can be used by Him to spread the Gospel of the Kingdom and work miracles, signs and wonders in His name.

In our own power, we will be able to accomplish nothing. However, by the anointing of the Holy Spirit at work in us, we will revolutionize the entire world. All men will be astonished at the glory of God that is manifested through us. They will be attracted to our faith in unprecedented numbers and marvel at the healings, deliverances and even resurrections that we perform.

Glorious Liberty

Galatians 5:13 “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only [use] not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.”

The entire world is shrouded in darkness and deception. Men everywhere are suffering and eager for the truth. The Lord is raising up a people that will glorify Him in all that they say and do. The Body of Christ is anointed to do the work of Jesus Christ in ushering in the Kingdom of God. Liberty is available for all men; they must be taught the truth that sets them free for all eternity.

While the Lord is loving and kind, merciful and compassionate, there will come a day that He draws a line in the sand that no man can cross. No evil will ever enter the Kingdom of God and dwell in His presence. He will be forced to exclude all those who make a habit of committing sin. Although that will grieve the Lord, only those who do His will can enter into His eternal Kingdom.

The Lord will demonstrate His glory all over the earth to attract men to the truth of His salvation message. He will empower His people to work miracles, signs and wonders to benefit all of mankind. We will heal the sick, deliver the oppressed and even raise the dead. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that have opposed the Gospel of the Kingdom and blinded men to the truth.

We will eagerly share our testimonies of how God has changed our lives since we were born again in Jesus Christ. We will encourage all men in the one true faith and baptize them in Christ’s name. We will stress the importance of walking in love, peace and unity, and teach them to obey God’s laws. We will be effective ambassadors for the Kingdom of God in all that we say and do.

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

God’s people enjoy real freedom. We are no longer in bondage to sin and death. Jesus Christ came to set us free and to give us life in abundance, to the overflow. All dominion over the earth has been given back to us with His victory over sin, death and the grave. We have true Christian liberty and we walk in the newness of life. We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil.

All of mankind has been plagued with disease, death, poverty, war and affliction of all types. They have been in bondage and oppression from Satan for thousands of years. The Lord wants us to open the prison doors that bind them and set them free, so that they can enjoy their lives and give Him all the glory. We will share the truth with them, so that they receive eternal life and all of its blessings.

It is our job to proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God and all that it represents. We should be setting captives free of all that oppresses them, whether it be health problems, addictions, financial stress or spiritual blindness of any type. It is our privilege to share the truth with them. We must make certain that we give all men hope and encouragement to trust God for their future.

Romans 8:18-21 “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same] in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”

Although God’s people have been oppressed and exploited for thousands of years, their greatest hour is rapidly approaching. The Lord will soon vindicate us before men and angels. He has an awesome plan in place for the redemption of all mankind and the restoration of the entire universe. He will show Himself strong in us and manifest His power and glory for all to see. The heavens are His, but the earth He has given to man. We will recoup our dominion from Satan, the enemy of our souls, and prevail.

All of creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God, so that we can take back the earth and everything in it. We will restore all of nature that has been in chaos, disorder and decay. We will bring harmony to the plant and animal kingdoms, as it was ordained from the foundation of the world. Pollution of the earth will cease once and for all. The climate will be regulated to be temperate and consistent, and there will be no more natural disasters that harm and frighten mankind ever again.

We will reorganize and restructure world governments to line up with godly principles of fairness, justice and equality for all men. We will confront all world leaders who have abused their power and been cruel and tyrannical to God’s people. Those nations that will not adhere to God’s way of doing things will be severely judged and punished in the days to come. Peace and order will ultimately prevail over the entire earth, as we recover control of world politics, economic systems and deal with social injustice.

The sons of God are anointed for total victory. The Lord will show Himself strong in His people and empower us to walk in total dominion. We will overcome all hindrances that might interfere with our work and impede the coming of the Kingdom of God. We will tear down all demonic strongholds, so that the enemy can no longer oppress mankind and deceive them. The Lord wants all men to know the truth. He loves them deeply and has a wonderful plan in place for their eternal redemption.

The Glory Of The Latter House

Haggai 2:9 “The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”

The Lord has grieved for the loss of His original chosen people for thousands of years. Very soon now, we will all be reunited in the Kingdom of God. The glory of this latter house will far outshine the glory of ancient Israel alone. Our numbers have increased over the years, so the Lord has a huge household at this time. We will all be His people – from the least to the greatest of us – and we will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, as He so desires.

The nation of Israel will be won to the one true faith, just as all other believers are saved and converted. They will hear the Gospel of the Kingdom and respond affirmatively to the Messianic message that they formerly rejected. While they were once confused and deceived, they are now hungry for peace and desperate for the truth, as are all unbelievers. When the glory of the Lord actually falls on the earth, they will be most easily persuaded.

No one will be able to deny the inimitable power and glory of God as it is revealed in miracles, signs and wonders to attract men to our faith. The sick will be healed of all their afflictions. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; the lame will walk. We will cast out demons that oppress men and set them free in the truth. Even the dead will be raised back to life again. The physical evidence of our God’s manifest presence will be widespread and irrefutable.

Romans 11:25-26 “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:”

The full number of all those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life must be called in before the Kingdom of God will be ushered into the earth realm. The Jews were spiritually blinded for many years, so that the full number of Gentile conversions could be made. Now that this task is almost consummated, the original chosen people will also be saved and gathered in to share the blessings of the Kingdom of God with the rest of us.

We are all urged to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the ultimate conversion of the Jewish people as a holy nation. The Body of Christ will focus on preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom to Israel in the days ahead, so that the Lord’s original chosen people can join us for eternal blessings in the Kingdom of God. They have been deluded and suffered a great deal for their spiritual blindness. The Lord has grieved for their loss for thousands of years now.

Romans 11:30-32 “For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.”

We should have pity on our Jewish brothers and sisters. The Lord demands that we show them mercy and compassion, as He has shown it to us. We should actively work to spread the Gospel to all men, including those who were His original chosen people. There is a full number of all those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, to include those who were called from the beginning. We are all the children of God – both Jews and Gentiles.

The Jewish people, whose minds and hearts have not been permanently blinded to the truth, will finally be converted and baptized in the Christian faith. They will accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and be granted eternal life as a result. They will evangelize many others in their nation and be restored to their right standing with God for all time. The Lord has a deep, genuine love for His original chosen people and He will be overjoyed.

Our God will receive all the honor and glory that He has so rightly deserved for all these years. Men will no longer deny Him as their Supreme Being and Creator Father. His Son, Jesus Christ, will be preached everywhere, and all men will have access to the power of the Gospel message. Many will be saved and baptized in the one true faith. The Lord will be satisfied that the harvest is ripe, and finally give the command to usher in His Kingdom.

The Earth Will Be Filled With The Glory Of God

Isaiah 62:3 “Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.”

We were created for an eternal purpose. We have divine destinies that will magnify our God in every way. We will spread His power and glory all over the world, as we usher in His Kingdom for all men to see. Heaven will actually come to the earth, as we have prayed for so many years. The Lord’s way of doing things will prevail and there will be peace and justice for all men. All of nature will be re-created, so that the Kingdom is a veritable paradise.

Heaven will be ushered into the earth realm with awesome power manifesting. All earthly kingdoms will be swallowed up within the Kingdom of God and Christ will rule and reign forever as a righteous King. He will appoint us as kings and priests of our God and share His very own honor and glory with us. We will rule over all the nations of the world and even judge both men and angels. The Lord will boast of us to all creation as the people called by His name.

The glory of the Kingdom of God will make the glory of all the Lord’s earthly tabernacles, churches and man-made temples pale in comparison. His awesome presence will be our everlasting source of light in the Kingdom. We will rejoice in all He has done for us and give Him all the praise and worship that is due Him. The Lord will be held in the highest esteem by both men and angels. He will revel in perpetual glory in the presence of all of His creatures.

Psalm 57:5 “Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [let] thy glory [be] above all the earth.”

Very soon now, the entire earth will be filled with the glory of God, as it manifests in and through His people. The Kingdom of God is imminent. The only thing that is holding it up is complete evangelization. The Lord has a dramatic show planned to bring in millions of latecomers to His Kingdom. The end-time harvest of souls will be reaped in its fullness in the very near future. Every man, woman and child will have an equal opportunity to be saved and baptized.

There will be miraculous signs and wonders performed by the Body of Christ all over the earth to attract men to the one true faith. There will be no dispute concerning the power of God to change lives, as we heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead back to life again. All men will note this universal move of God and be astounded at His demonstration of might on our behalf.

The Kingdom of God will be ushered in with full power and glory manifesting. It will be a cataclysmic event of such proportion that the world will never be the same again. Everything will be turned upside down and right side up. Jesus Christ will soon return with His angels and saints to rule and reign for all eternity. All the ungodly will be destroyed in the wrath of His coming. Satan and all his minions will be banished to the bottomless pit, as they deserve to be.

Christ will sit in judgment over all men and angels. He will judge both the living and the dead. No one will escape His scrutiny; only He is perfect and able to determine who receives eternal rewards and punishments. The righteous will inherit blessings in the Kingdom of God, while all those who have been rebellious or failed to walk in love will share their fate in the lake of fire.

The Glory Of Jesus Christ

Colossians 2:15 “[And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”

The Lord’s redemption plan is nothing short of genius. While Adam relinquished all his power, authority and dominion over the earth to Satan in the Garden of Eden, Jesus Christ took it back with His victory over sin, death and the grave. The devil is a defeated foe, and he cannot stop heaven from coming to the earth realm in the Kingdom of God, as it has been planned. The Body of Christ will tear down all demonic strongholds that interfere with its work or impede its progress.

It will be critical that we hear from God and be totally obedient to do whatever He tells us in the days ahead. That was Christ’s key to success in His earthly ministry, and it will be ours as well. The Lord will have us speak words of power and authority to all the world and everyone in it, and we must be totally cooperative. We will not be able to usher the Kingdom of God into the earth, unless we do everything that the Lord instructs us. He has all the details planned to perfection.

We all have eternal callings and divine destinies that are being revealed in the days to come. Our background, talent, education and experience will mean nothing. Anyone who is willing, obedient and yielded to the Lord can be used as a vessel for His awesome glory to be demonstrated. We will preach the Gospel with power and conviction and draw all men to Him. The entire earth will be recreated, organized and prepared for heaven to be ushered in, if we are totally obedient.

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

Christ will soon return to judge both men and angels, and rule and reign in His Kingdom. He will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming. Nothing that defiles us will ever enter into the Kingdom of God. Jesus will rule with a rod of iron and make certain that there is nothing evil that would prevent the Lord from dwelling with us for all of eternity. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity in the Kingdom of God.

Very soon now, every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord over all of creation.” He will share His very own honor and glory with the people who are called by His name. If we have been devoted and faithful in our service to Him, we will be exalted with Him in His everlasting Kingdom. We will have praise for our former shame and derision. He will permit us to assist in judgment and rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world.

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

Jesus Christ will not return to the earth as a meek and mild Lamb of God. He will make a dramatic entry as the King of kings and Lord of lords. His return will be so magnificent and powerful that it will destroy all evil off the face of the earth in one fell swoop. His feet will touch down on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem and cause an earthquake of epic proportions.

Satan and all his minions will be bound in the bottomless pit and the Lord will begin His judgment of all men to determine who is righteous and will enter into His Kingdom and who is deserving of eternal punishment. All who are committed to evil will be banished to the lake of fire, while those who are worthy will have awesome blessings in the Kingdom of God.

It remains to be seen what such explosive power will do to the rest of creation and to God’s people who are present on the earth at that time. We can be certain that it will manifest for good for us. The dead in Christ will be raised back to life. Our bodies will be transformed in the twinkling of an eye into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever free of disease and death.

Psalm 96:13 “Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.”

We know that life will never be the same again, when heaven is ushered in to the earth realm. Christ will judge both the living and the dead and expel all defilement from His Kingdom. All evil will be vanquished to the lake of fire, and Satan himself will be bound in the bottomless pit, so that he can no longer torment God’s people. The Lord will rule us with a rod of iron to ensure fairness and justice will prevail.

There will be only peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and gladness in God’s eternal Kingdom. All of nature will comply with our commands and be restored to its original beauty and balance. The plants and animals will live in harmony with one another and be subject to man’s dominion once again. Even the climate will be readjusted, so that it is always calm and temperate and conducive to abundant life.

Angelic hosts will mingle with God’s people, and we will all be reunited with the resurrected saints. The Lord will turn our speech back to a pure one that is easily understood by all of His creatures. All men will dwell in love and unity with one another, and rejoice in all that the Lord has done for us. Both angels and men will worship the Lord in all His glory. He will dwell with us for all eternity in the Kingdom.

1Peter 1:7-8 “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now you see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:”

Many who are first now will be last in the Kingdom of God. The Lord looks on the inner man of the heart and determines the level of sincerity that is present. Only those who are loving and righteous will see God and dwell in His Kingdom for all eternity. Those who are self-righteous, proud, unrepentant or rebellious will all be expelled from the Lord’s presence.

Our faith has been tested and tried over the years, yet we are not without hope and confidence. The Lord, Jesus Christ, will soon return to rule and reign in His Kingdom. We will be glorified in Him for all eternity. He will not forget our faithful service to Him; we will not be ashamed. He will vindicate us before all men, and take vengeance on all our enemies.

Our Savior will reward us for our devotion to Him and to His people. He knows that we have walked in love and done the will of His Father, as we were taught. He also realizes that we have lost a great deal because of our faith, and He will restore everything that has been taken from us by men or devils. We will rejoice in all that He has planned for His people.

Revelation 1:6 “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

We will have all the riches that the universe has to offer us, as our eternal rewards and blessings are released to us. The Lord will anticipate all that we require to lead healthy, happy lives for all time. We will have an abundant inheritance with all the saints of God.

We will inherit the Kingdom of God as our reward for righteous and faithful service. All men will look up to us and our names will be a praise on the earth. We will no longer suffer shame, scorn and derision for our faith; we will be regarded as heroes by all God’s people.

We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory for all eternity. He will boast of us to all creation and we will help to judge both men and angels. We will help to abolish all evil off the face of the earth, so that only righteousness and truth will prevail in God’s Kingdom.

We will rule and reign with Him for all eternity and be kings and priests of God. We will serve as just overseers of God’s people and be capable teachers of all men. We will govern by Kingdom principles with fairness and justice, as all men learn to walk in love and unity.

We will build homes and dwell in them for all time. We will be fruitful in all that we do and appreciate the beauty and bounty that the earth has to offer us. Life will be like it was in the Garden of Eden, and everything on the earth will be in harmony and subject to man.

We will live long and strong in God’s Kingdom, and enjoy life in the presence of God Himself. We will have the heathen for our inheritance and be reunited with our friends and families. All men will finally know God, and worship Him in Spirit and truth for all eternity.

Eternal Glory

Psalm 72:19 “And blessed [be] his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled [with] his glory; Amen, and Amen.”

Very soon now, every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord!” All men will know the Lord; they will not have to be taught His way of doing things any longer. His laws will be written on their minds and in their hearts for all time. There will be peace and unity among men, and they will dwell together as brothers.

All evil will be expelled from Christ’s Kingdom and only righteousness and truth will prevail. The Lord will meet all of our needs even before we ask Him. He will be our God and live with us for all time. We will fellowship intimately with Him, as He intended from the foundation of the world. He will take an active role in our lives and be eternally glorified in us.

The Kingdom of God will be populated by all the righteous and represented by every tongue, race and nation in the world. We will all come together as God’s people and worship Him in Spirit and in truth, as He desires. We will celebrate His feast days and sabbaths and enjoy perpetual blessings – both temporal and spiritual – for all of eternity.

Psalm 148:13 “Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory [is] above the earth and heaven.”

The Lord, Jesus Christ, will be eternally glorified before men and angels. His name will be magnified in heaven and on the earth. The Body of Christ will deliver the Kingdom of God to Christ for His eternal inheritance. He will rule and reign as a righteous King with a rod of iron to ensure peace, order, safety and security for all His Kingdom residents.

The Body of Christ will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. All men will respect us and treat us as they would the Lord. We will have praise instead of our former shame, and the Lord will take vengeance on all our enemies that have oppressed us in the past. He will also restore everything that has been unlawfully taken from us over the years.

We will give the Lord all the praise and glory that He deserves and dwell with Him in His Kingdom for all of eternity. He will boast of us to all creation as we rule and reign with His Son, Jesus Christ. We will be appointed kings and priests, rulers and teachers of God’s people. The Lord will even permit us to judge both men and angels with His standards.

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

As we behold the glory of God Himself more clearly, we are also changed from glory to glory in our walk with Him. The closer our relationship to Him, the more we shine with His light. Very soon now, the people of God will be glorified with the same honor that is given to Jesus Christ. We have fought the good fight of faith diligently and we can expect a full recompense.

Our friends and families will all know the Lord and many will be reunited with us for all time. They will admire instead of ridicule us, and be subject to our righteous rule. We will have neighbors that all know and love the Lord, and serve Him with joy and gladness. Both men and angels will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, as He so earnestly desires.

The glory of the Lord will be the perpetual light in His Kingdom. He will be magnified by all of creation and provide all our needs in abundance. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and gladness all the days of our lives. The Kingdom of God will be filled with the eternal glory of the Lord, Jesus Christ, as it is reflected in His people.

Christ will rule and reign with a rod of iron to make certain that Kingdom integrity is maintained at all times. He will boast of us to all creation and present us to His Father and the angels. We will be appointed kings and priests of God. Our names will be a praise on the earth and we will share in a legacy of honor for all of eternity in the Kingdom of God.

Chapter 7 – Spiritual Revolution

 

Hebrews 12:25-29 “See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more [shall not] we [escape], if we turn away from him that [speaketh] from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this [word], Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God [is] a consuming fire.”

There’s a major shakeup coming – a spiritual revolution that will take place all over the universe! Jesus Christ is calling out to all mankind and challenging them to the truth. The Gospel message still cries out to be heard thousands of years after Christ Himself spread it to His followers. It is compelling and critical, powerful and life changing.

All men must make the all-important decision to accept Christ and repent of sin or perish in the days to come. There’s a global judgment coming for all of us, and we must face the fact that it is final and irrefutable. Our eternal destinies depend on our walking in love and righteousness. Our God is a consuming fire that will purge us of all our iniquity.

Christ is shaking both heaven and earth, so that what remains is unshakeable. He will have a Kingdom that is not moved. It will absorb all earthly kingdoms and take precedence over all world governments. The Body of Christ will be assigned to reorganize and restructure all the nations of the world to line up with fair and just Kingdom principles.

All of creation will be impacted in the days to come, as the sons of God restore it to its original beauty and balance. The climate will be regulated, so that there are no natural disasters ever again. Plants and animals will be in harmony with one another and subject to man’s dominion. Decay and death will be reversed and all things will be made new again, as promised us.

All evil will soon be eradicated off the face of the earth. Christ is returning to destroy those who have destroyed the world. All that remains will be pure and undefiled before God. He is taking us back to our beginnings in the Garden of Eden, with no downside this time. We will soon dwell in a literal paradise on the earth for all of eternity.

Revelation 19:11-16 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is the conquering hero that has defeated the devil for all time and will soon return to the earth to establish His everlasting Kingdom. All the angels and saints in heaven are part of His end-times army. His Body has been hard at work completing His ministry on the earth and the time has come for Him to receive His inheritance.

Christ will soon return in all of His power and glory. No longer the meek and mild Lamb of God that gave Himself for the sins of the world, He now has vengeance in His heart. He will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming. He will eradicate all evil off the face of the earth, and bind Satan and all his minions in the bottomless pit.

Our Redeemer is furious that His people have suffered so much oppression and exploitation, and He will destroy all of our enemies and set us free to enjoy life without fear and molestation in the Kingdom of God. There will be only peace and prosperity, safety and security for God’s people for all time. He will meet all our needs in abundance even before we ask Him.

Jesus will rule with a rod of iron and make absolutely certain that no evil comes anywhere near His Kingdom. Principles of fairness and justice will prevail for all of eternity. God’s laws will be written in our minds and our hearts, so that we will all obey them. Men will finally learn to walk in love, peace and unity with one another or be eternally punished.

Isaiah 2:4 “And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”

All the nations of the world will stand in judgment before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to determine whether or not they have been righteous to their people, and fair and just in their dealings with one another. The Lord will root out all evil from His Kingdom and rule with awesome power to ensure that only peace, order and righteousness prevail on the earth.

No one will escape Christ’s scrutiny or avoid His judgment. It will be irrefutable, final and permanent. He will judge both the living and the dead, all men and even angels. Only He can and will determine who receives eternal rewards and who is destined for punishment in the lake of fire. Nothing that is evil or defiling will ever enter into the Kingdom of God.

Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord.” He will share His very own honor and glory with His Body and His Bride. We will rule and reign with Him for all eternity as kings and priests of God. We will be just overseers and capable teachers of all the nations of the world to make certain that Kingdom principles are all in force.

A Spiritual Conflict

Revelation 12:12 “Therefore rejoice, [ye] heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”

There is war in the heavenlies right now. The Lord’s angelic hosts are battling satanic forces that would destroy mankind and wreak havoc all over the earth. His celestial army is rising up and battling for the Kingdom of God. Spiritual fallout reaches down to the earth, and there is global tension that will precede total restructure of this planet.

We see evidence of increasing contention between the nations of the world, and threats of war, insurrection and violence. There is a rise in crime rates, as the hearts of most men grow cold. Greed, oppression and exploitation are at an all time high, as the wealth of the universe is at stake and about to be reapportioned to God’s people.

All of nature is in travail. There are natural disasters, horrific signs in the heavens and on the earth. All of mankind is being affected. The devil knows his time is short and that he can cause turmoil and torment for only a while longer. The Body of Christ will soon rise up and destroy all of his efforts to bring evil, chaos and destruction to the world.

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

Satan is already a defeated foe; he will have to relinquish all of his control back to men as the Lord intends. He will be obliterated by the sons of God in a cataclysmic conflict that will shake the entire earth to its foundation. He will soon be bruised underneath our feet, as it is written. The people of God are reclaiming the entire world for Jesus Christ.

We will usher in the Kingdom of God with awesome power and glory. War and violence will be things of the past. Chaos and confusion will no longer reign on the earth. We will defeat all the minions of Satan that would bring death and devastation to mankind. All men will have the opportunity to be set free and receive the benefits of eternal life.

All world governments and their leaders will be challenged to make certain that they adhere to Kingdom principles of fairness and justice in their dealings with one another. Cruel, tyrannical despots will be replaced with godly leaders for mankind. No one who is evil, power-hungry, greedy or exploitive will ever enter into the Kingdom of God.

Romans 8:18 “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.”

All of nature is in travail and waiting for the sons of God to be revealed, so that they can set things straight on the earth and reverse the decay and destruction that is so prevalent. Plants, animals and even the climate suffer from the effects of satanic influence over all of creation. The devil knows his time is short and he is doing all that he can to destroy.

The people of God must rise up in their kingly and priestly anointing and forcibly take back all that the enemy has stolen from us over the years. We will receive a full impartation of Christ’s very own power and authority to set matters straight on the earth and restore peace and order to all of creation. There will be no more demonic influence.

We will make certain that God’s way of doing things presides on the earth. Chaos and confusion, death and destruction, war and conflict will all be banished from the Kingdom of God. Nothing that is defiling will ever enter in to disturb the peace and serenity there. Christ will rule and reign with a rod of iron to make sure we have safety and security.

Holy Warriors

Romans 11:29 “For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance.”

Members of the Body of Christ all have unique callings that will be utilized in bringing heaven to the earth. We will walk in love and unity under the guidance and direction of Christ Himself. Our Savior knows what must be done to prepare the earth for the Kingdom of God and He will give us specific, detailed instruction in all that we are called to do in the days that lie ahead.

The gifts and callings of God are unconditional. He freely supplies us with all that we need to be successful on His behalf. Our continual righteousness assures us that we will always be of valuable service to the Lord and His people. If we will sanctify ourselves of all known sin, we will be suitable vessels for the Lord’s very own anointing power to manifest in and through us.

We must appropriate our God given strength and ability to set matters straight on this earth, so that the Kingdom of God can be ushered in for Jesus Christ to rule and reign. We cannot be passive and permit evil to prevail over us any longer. We have to rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing and recoup all that has been stolen from us by the enemy over the last two thousand years.

1Corinthians 12:12 “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also [is] Christ.”

Christ is coming back to the earth in a people who dare to be radically obedient to Him. He wants all of His followers to walk in total power and authority over evil just as He once did. He will imbue us with supernatural capabilities to take back the entire earth, as we are destined to do. Men from every race, tongue and nation will be used of God in His eternal purpose.

The Body of Christ is being called out, sanctified, prepared and empowered to do its parts in ushering in God’s Kingdom. We are mighty in the anointing power and authority of God Himself. We will preach the good news of the Kingdom of God, baptize countless numbers and call in the full harvest of souls that is necessary before the Kingdom itself comes to the earth realm.

We will do intense spiritual warfare and destroy all demonic strongholds that hinder men in coming to a full knowledge of the truth. Satanic, mind blinding spirits are on the defensive and their power to create fear, doubt and unbelief is being neutralized for all time. The Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached with awesome power and conviction to all the nations of the world.

It is the Lord’s desire that all men come to a full knowledge of the truth, so that they can be set free. He does not want anyone to perish and be denied eternal life in His everlasting Kingdom. The Lord has a real heart for His people and loves each of us. Many will come to the truth and be converted in our faith. We will baptize men, women and children all over the entire earth.

Mankind will be set free from oppression of all types and delivered from their bondage to sin. Love, peace and unity will be the norms for Kingdom living and the Lord will make very certain that they are enforced to the letter. No one who is greedy, power-hungry, contentious, arrogant or prone to evil of any kind will ever be permitted to enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God.

Joel 3:9-10 “Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I [am] strong.”

This will not be a peaceful takeover; the Kingdom of God will be taken by force. The Lord will show Himself strong on behalf of His people and manifest His power and glory all over the earth. He will empower us to do good and overcome all evil, through the operation of His Holy Spirit. We will take back the earth and everything in it with the power and strength inherent in our words.

We have been given the keys to the Kingdom of God. They are voice-activated and powerful for creation or destruction. Whatever we bind on earth will absolutely be bound in heaven. Whatever we loose on the earth will also be loosed in heaven. There is life and death in the power of our tongues. We will have exactly what we speak, as long as it lines up with the Word and the will of God.

Everything that we speak will have a lasting impact on all of creation. Our words will either build men up and glorify God or tear down demonic strongholds and banish Satan. We will have to be very certain that we only decree what the Lord says that we should. We will bind all the efforts of the enemy and loose blessings into the world instead. Everything that we say will have a lasting effect.

Joel 2:7 “They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:”

The Body of Christ walks in unity of purpose, as mighty warriors for the Lord, Jesus Christ. We take our guidance and direction straight from the King of kings and Lord of lords. Christ has vengeance in His heart for all the pain, suffering and affliction that His people have suffered over the years. He will empower us to destroy all the works of the enemy and defeat him once and for all.

We will be given extraordinary energy and supernatural capabilities, so that the entire earth is impacted for good. We will set men free of all their bondage and oppression. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that interfere with our work or impede the coming of the Kingdom of God to the earth. We will overcome all evil with good and take back the entire planet for Christ.

Everything that we do will have amazing results. All of mankind will take note of how awesome our God is, and how merciful He is to His people. We will restructure all world governments and economies to line up with Kingdom principles. There will be peace and unity established on the earth. All of creation will bow to our faith filled words and be re-created according to divine order.

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

This will be the consummate struggle of good versus evil. Demonic forces will be arrayed against us as never before. The devil knows his time is short and he will launch a series of aggravating attacks against God’s people. We must be prepared to defend our faith and to set men free from their bondage to sin and darkness. We will have to be totally unified in our efforts.

The Body of Christ must be joined together in perfect love, peace and unity, with Christ as our Head. We cannot be doing our own thing or be subordinate in any way. The Lord has all the plans and strategy for this end-time battle plotted out succinctly. We need only be consecrated, willing and obedient and we will perceive miracles, signs and wonders occurring all around us.

There will be legions of angels dispatched to back up all of our efforts to restore peace and order to the world. The Lord will show Himself strong on our behalf and usher in His Kingdom with full power and glory manifesting for all of mankind to see. The hearts of men will be fearful if they walk in rebellion. We will soon execute the Lord’s judgment for all eyes to witness.

Our God is angry that His people have suffered so much oppression. We will challenge all world leaders to make certain that they have their priorities in order. The Lord will not tolerate His people being afflicted with tyranny and despotism. He hates greed, pride and arrogance and He will strip evil, haughty rulers of all their power. Peace and justice will soon reign on the earth.

Supernatural Power

2Corinthians 10:4 “(For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)”

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal; they are spiritual, yet powerful for the destruction of all demonic strongholds. We will use prayer, praise, worship and spiritual decrees as our arsenal and obliterate the enemy and all his minions that would interfere with our ushering in the Kingdom of God. Satan will no longer hinder our efforts to set men free.

There will be a mighty demonstration of the Lord’s very own anointing power and authority manifested all over the earth in these last days. The sick will be healed in unprecedented numbers. All captives of enemy oppression will be delivered from their bad habits and personal afflictions. Even the dead will be raised back to life again, in defiance of the very laws of nature.

We will fight the good fight of faith in all that we do. Men’s lives will be changed as never before. They will be released from their bondage to sin. They will inherit eternal life and walk in true Christian liberty. We will recruit countless numbers to serve as members of the Body of Christ and take back the entire planet for the Kingdom of God, as we are destined to do.

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

All world governments and political regimes will have to line up with Kingdom standards of righteousness and justice for all men. The Body of Christ will take an active part in restructuring and reorganizing them. There will finally be peace and order on the earth, and all men will enjoy freedom from oppression and exploitation, as we usher in the Kingdom of God in all its power. We will take back all economic resources for God’s people and we will never again suffer from poverty and lack.

The Body of Christ will tear down all demonic strongholds that have injured God’s people or kept them in bondage of any kind. The sick will be healed; the captives will be set free and men everywhere will be delivered from their ignorance. The Gospel will be preached throughout the world and men, women and children will flock to hear it and receive the blessings of eternal life. The Kingdom of God will be open and its blessings made available to all the righteous throughout the entire world.

So too, all of creation will respond to our efforts to restore it to its original beauty and balance. The climate will become temperate and there will be no more natural catastrophes that destroy the earth and terrify men. All the effects of pollution will be reversed and the air and water will be pure once again. The plants and animals will all dwell in harmony with one another and with man. Life in the Kingdom of God will be idyllic; the earth will be a paradise as it once was in the Garden of Eden.

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

This is a spiritual conflict of good versus evil, and only spiritual weapons and supernatural warfare methods will be effective in winning it. The battle is really the Lord’s and He will call all the shots. We need only be attentive to His guidance and direction and obedient to perform His will, and we will see Satan utterly stripped of all his power and authority. The earth has been given to men, not devils. The Lord will make certain that His people receive their inheritance.

This is not a natural battle using conventional weapons. Change will be effected only through the mighty anointing power and authority of Jesus Christ that works through us. We will perform miracles, signs and wonders all over the face of the earth. We will speak faith-based words that line up with the Word of God and impact the entire world for Christ. Everything that we do will be instrumental in fulfilling the Lord’s eternal redemption plan and purpose for mankind.

Evil in all its forms will be eventually overcome by good. There will be nothing left to defile or destroy men, as the Kingdom of God is ushered into the earth realm. The Body of Christ is anointed for total victory over Satan and all his minions. There will finally be peace and order on the earth and Jesus Christ Himself will prevail in all things. He will return to destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness and to bind Satan in the bottomless pit where he belongs.

Binding The Enemy

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

The Lord Himself is equipping us for this battle. We have been given the keys to the Kingdom of God. They are voice-activated. We are created in God’s image and likeness, and with His own words He created the entire universe. With our words that line up with the Word of God, we will bind Satan in the name of Jesus, cast him out of our lives and loose blessings on the earth. We will have whatever we speak into existence in the natural realm.

Whatever we verbally permit will be manifested. What we forbid will be abolished. The enemy will have to cease and desist if we bind him in his diabolical efforts to create chaos, confusion, violence, war and insurrection on the earth. He will be restrained and forbidden to interfere in any way, when we loose blessings of peace and prosperity, love and unity to all mankind.

The devil will no longer be able to blind men to the truth, as we preach the Word of God and baptize countless numbers of souls in the end-time harvest. His efforts to keep men sick and oppressed in their afflictions will have to stop when we bind all hindering spirits and loose health and wellness to others. He will be defeated for all time when we raise the dead back to life, so that they can join us for eternal blessings in the Kingdom of God.

Death is the very last enemy that must be overcome before we deliver the Kingdom of God to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are to put all enemies under His feet for all time, and then He will return to rule and reign in His Kingdom. We must follow the Lord’s guidance and direction to us, so that we can totally destroy all enemy strongholds and loose eternal blessings instead.

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

Man has his power over the earth restored to him. Satan is under our feet and on the way out. He is furious because his time is short, and he wants to do whatever he can to prevent heaven from coming to the earth. The good news is we have authority to bind him and cast him out of our lives once and for all. He cannot impede our progress, as we usher in the Kingdom of God.

Christ made an open show of him at Calvary and stripped him of all his powers. The devil is a defeated foe and he can no longer wreak havoc on the earth; we have been given the power and the responsibility to resist him. We continue to bind him and cast him out with our faith-based decrees. We overcome him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the words of our testimony.

We reinforce all that Christ did when we take back our dominion over all matters on the earth and exercise our God-given authority. Every time we speak to evil and command it to depart from God’s people we ensure that good will prevail for all mankind. We will establish peace, order and stability on this planet, so heaven can be ushered in here as the Lord expressly wishes.

Mark 3:27 “No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.”

We are binding all Satan’s efforts to impede the coming of the Kingdom of God to the earth. We will spoil him just as Christ did on the cross, and take back all he has stolen from us over the years. For example, there will be a dramatic transfer of financial resources from the enemy’s hands to the people of God, since the wealth of the wicked is being stored up for the righteous saints.

Peace and order will reign on the earth rather than chaos and conflict. All men will learn to walk in love and unity. The people of God will no longer be exploited or oppressed by men or devils. We will be overcomers in every area of our lives and receive honor and glory for our efforts. We will receive full restitution of all that was taken from us over the years by the enemy.

There will be a dramatic redistribution of power on the earth. The godly will prevail and the entire planet will be shaken to the core, as the people of God rise up in their God-given authority. This will be a battle of enormous proportion and the Kingdom of God will be taken by force. The Lord will back up all of our efforts and global changes will be made for the benefit of all mankind.

We will spoil Satan and take back everything that belongs to us. He will no longer steal our birthright or lay claim to our dominion on the earth. We will apprehend the Kingdom of God for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and possess it as our inheritance forever and ever. Satan will ultimately be banished to the abyss and the people of God will reign victorious over him for all time.

The Plight Of The Enemy

Colossians 2:15 “[And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”

The enemy is a defeated foe; Christ vanquished him for all time with His victory over sin, death and the grave. The Lord’s death and resurrection promise us eternal life and all its many blessings for our righteousness. A major benefit we have received is the return of our dominion and authority over all things in the earth, which Satan stole from Adam when he sinned.

Satan had the upper hand for a while; he was in control of the earth and everything in it. But Christ made an open show of him, triumphing over him for our benefit. The heavens are the Lord’s, but the earth He has given to men. The devil must relinquish his control and authority over earthly matters and return what has been taken from us. He can no longer oppress or destroy us.

We now have dominion over everything in the earth restored to us, as was intended from the foundation of the world. Through the efforts of Jesus Christ and His powerful anointing at work in us and through us, we will destroy all the works of the enemy and establish peace and order. All of mankind will be set free from demonic oppression, suffering and bondage to sin for all time.

Isaiah 14:12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

The devil has wreaked havoc over all of mankind for long enough. The people of God are destroying all his efforts to bring chaos and conflict, war and violence, oppression and exploitation to those on the earth. We are rising up in our God-given power and authority and canceling all his demonic assignments. He is a defeated foe and he can no longer defile us in any way.

We will take back the planet and everything in it for the Lord, as He intends us to do. There will finally be peace on the earth, as we take control of all world governments and realign them to adhere to Kingdom principles of righteousness. All of creation is in travail and waiting for the sons of God to take dominion over the plant and animal kingdoms and all of nature itself.

The Body of Christ has not only the obligation, but also the God-given power to do all that is required of us in the days ahead. The Lord Himself will send hosts of ministering angels to assist us in all that we do. We will be totally victorious in all of our efforts to usher heaven into the earth realm. Satan will not only be bruised under our feet, but also rendered totally powerless.

Revelation 20:1-3 “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”

We have an important role to play in the Lord’s eternal redemption plan and we should not shirk our divine responsibility. We are Christ’s hands, feet and voice on the earth and much is required of us. We should be in continuous communication with Him at all times, so that we know how and when to move.

Very soon now, Christ will return to destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in His coming wrath. He will also deal with Satan and bind him in the bottomless pit for a thousand years, the Bible tells us. He will not disturb God’s people any longer. His reign on the earth is finished.

The enemy of our souls that has accused and oppressed us will finally be banished for a very long time. Nothing evil and no one who defiles will be present in God’s Kingdom. Christ will rule with a rod of iron to maintain Kingdom integrity and to protect His people from all evil, defilement and darkness.

There will be peace and prosperity in the Kingdom of God. There will be no war and insurrection, no chaos or confusion. No one will be greedy or exploitative. All men will know the Lord and adhere to His commandment of love or be expelled from His presence for all eternity.

Satan will be loosed for a short time in the distant future, but he will always remain a defeated foe. The Lord has every detail of His eternal redemption plan timed and strategized to perfection. Good will overcome evil in every area and God’s way of doing things will prevail on the earth for all time.

Good Will Overcome Evil

Mark 9:1 “And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.”

The forces of evil will be annihilated off the face of the earth, so that the Kingdom of God can be ushered in with full power and glory. The enemy is on the run and his strength is waning. The people of God are rising up and fighting demonic oppression as never before. The earth and all of its inhabitants are preparing for a positive change.

The Body of Christ will be totally successful in ushering in the Kingdom of God. We will prevail by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. We are binding Satan and all his minions and loosing eternal blessings for all of mankind. The words that we speak hold power and authority to destroy all evil and release good things on the earth.

We will challenge all world governments to line up with Kingdom principles of peace and justice and destroy yokes of human bondage. We will take dominion over all natural forces that have caused decay, disease and death. The entire creation will be renewed according to the will of God and be beautiful and balanced, as it was meant to be.

Romans 12:21 “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Our very words that line up with the Word of God will totally renovate the planet. We must be very certain that we wait on orders from the Lord before we speak or decree anything. His timing, strategy and execution are critically important to our success. We cannot be overzealous and make matters worse; we will have to say what God says and do what He tells us to do.

That which is good will overcome all that is evil and destructive on the earth. The Lord will prevail in all things, and His eternal Kingdom will be ushered in with full power and glory, as it is planned. Heaven will indeed come to the earth realm very soon and the Lord’s way of doing things and being right will replace all that is negative and defiling to man and God.

There’s an irrefutable judgment coming on all of creation. No man or angel will be able to avoid or escape it. All evil will soon be destroyed off the face of the earth for all time. There will be nothing that ever contaminates life in the Kingdom of God. Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit; everyone who is committed to evil will share eternal punishment in the lake of fire.

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

We are rapidly approaching the time when there will be no more second chances given anyone. All those who have been deliberately rebellious and made a habit of committing evil will be expelled from the Kingdom of God. They will share their punishment in the lake of fire for all eternity. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth by all those who have been unrighteous. No second chances will be given to either rebellious men or angels.

The people of God will have safety and security in the Kingdom. We will be far from oppression and exploitation. Nothing will ever hurt or destroy us. The ultimate enemy, death itself, will be defeated, as all the dead in Christ are raised back to life. We will have new resurrection bodies that are impervious to disease, decay and death and live forever in the presence of our God. We will have nothing but endless peace and unlimited blessings.

There will be joy and gladness instead of pain and sorrow in God’s Kingdom. The Lord will blot all evil from our memory. We will enjoy peace and prosperity, glory and honor all the days of our lives. We will rule and reign with Christ and judge both men and angels. He will boast of us to all creation; give us the heathen for our inheritance; and even appoint us as kings and priests. All men will learn to fellowship in love and unity for all eternity.

Revelation 20:15 “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

It’s time for the final curtain call. Very soon now, there will be no more time to repent and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. There is a full number of believers that will be called in during the end-time harvest of souls. Only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be saved and enter into God’s Kingdom with all of its many blessings for righteousness and obedience.

All those who are committed to doing evil will be eternally excluded from the Kingdom of God. The Lord Himself will dwell with us and nothing evil can be in His presence. Nothing that defiles our God or His people will ever enter in to the Kingdom. Those who abide with the Lord will enjoy peace and prosperity, joy and freedom, safety and security, while the rebellious will be punished for all time.

Jesus Christ will soon return to judge both men and angels, as it is written. He will determine who is righteous and eligible to enter into the Kingdom of God and inherit its blessings. He will punish all the ungodly and expel them from His presence for all eternity into the lake of fire. He will bind Satan in the abyss, so that he can no longer harass, torment or oppress the people of God in any way.

The Return Of Jesus Christ

Isaiah 40:10 “Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong [hand], and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward [is] with him, and his work before him.”

The anointing on Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior has not changed over the years. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He was sent to the earth to set the captives free and to preach the good news of the coming of the Kingdom. His Body has picked up where He left off in His earthly ministry, and the full harvest of souls will be reaped in the end-time harvest.

The Gospel will be preached all over the entire world. Many will be saved and baptized in the days ahead. People will be healed and delivered in unprecedented numbers, so that all men will be attracted to our faith through the power and glory of God. The dead will be raised back to life again and we will work many miracles, signs and wonders to draw mankind back to the Lord.

The Body of Christ is an extension of Jesus Himself. We have the same powerful anointing to do good that He had. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that interfere with our ministry and take back total control and dominion over the entire earth. Christ will be glorified in us for all time, and He will reward us generously for our service when we usher in the Kingdom of God.

We will be appointed kings and priests, and rule and reign with Jesus Christ. We will be given the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory and all men will esteem us, rather than scorn or ridicule us for our faith. Our reputations, relationships and property will all be restored, as the Lord Himself will vindicate us.

Matthew 10:34 “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”

There will be such a display of explosive, raw power when Jesus Christ returns that the entire universe will be shaken, as heaven itself is ushered into the earth realm. Jesus is not returning as the meek and mild Lamb of God. He will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming and bind Satan and all his minions in the bottomless pit where they belong.

He will return as the ultimate conqueror, the King of kings and Lord of lords. All the saints in heaven plus angelic hosts, who serve as His end-times army, will accompany Him. There will be a huge, worldwide earthquake as His feet touch down on the Mount of Olives. There will be such dynamic power generated that it will destroy all evil and totally restructure the entire earth.

Nothing will remain the same. Christ will turn the world upside down and right side up again until everything is totally purified. He will allow no evil to enter into His Kingdom. Anything and anyone that defiles God or man will be eternally banished. Only those who are uncompromisingly righteous and walk in love will enter into His Father’s presence in the Kingdom of God.

Revelation 19:15 “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God”

No evil will be permitted to remain unpunished. The Lord will take vengeance on all our enemies and banish all the unrighteous to the eternal lake of fire. No one will escape His scrutiny; His judgment will be final and permanent. He will rule and reign with a rod of iron for all eternity, to make certain that Kingdom principles of fairness and justice are enforced for all mankind.

There will be no more civil unrest, war, violence or bloodshed anywhere. Christ will destroy all those who would destroy the earth and its inhabitants. We need not ever fear oppression and exploitation of any kind. There will be no more greed or desire for power. All men will learn to live together as brothers or be banished to the lake of fire with the rest of the rebellious.

The Lord Himself will dwell with us in the Kingdom of God, but no evil can enter into His holy presence. It will all be destroyed and expelled by Jesus Christ Himself. We must make very certain that we have totally sanctified ourselves in preparation for eternal life, so that we can dwell in love and peace with our God as He has ordained from the very foundation of the world.

Psalm 79:6 “Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.”

The world stage is set and all earthly kingdoms will be judged, restructured, reorganized and absorbed into the Kingdom of God. The world leaders who do not adhere to Kingdom principles of righteousness, fairness and justice for their people will ultimately be punished. They will be doomed to complete extinction from the face of the earth for their rebellion and lawlessness.

Only peace and order will prevail in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will reward all the righteous and gather them to Himself for all of eternity, while the evil will share in the lake of fire. We will live free of fear and molestation. All men will know the Lord and have His laws written in their minds and hearts. We will dwell in love and unity in the very presence of our awesome God.

Christ will rule and reign over all the world with righteousness, justice and equality for all men. He will govern with a rod of iron to make certain that everyone complies with His wishes. The Body of Christ is ready to assist the Lord with judgment of both men and angels. We will rule and reign with Christ as kings and priests of God and have the heathen for our inheritance for all eternity.

Revelation 21:27 “And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither [whatsoever] worketh abomination, or [maketh] a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.”

The enemy will soon be captured and bound in the bottomless pit by Christ Himself. There will be no evil in the Kingdom of God to mar life there in any way. God’s people will live without fear or oppression. We will have all that was taken from us by the devil restored for all time. There will be safety and security, fairness and equality in the Kingdom of God. All men will learn to live together as brothers or be banished to the lake of fire for eternal punishment.

Christ and His Father will take up residence with their people called after their name. There will be no more separation of God and man. We will fellowship together for all eternity, as was planned from the very foundation of the world. The sun will no longer shine by day, nor the moon by night. The glory of the Lord alone will light up His Kingdom forever more.

The Lord will provide all we require from the vast resources of wealth that the entire universe has to offer. He will meet all of our needs in abundance, with more than enough for all to share equally. We will be blessed beyond our wildest dreams and enjoy all that the Kingdom promises us. The earth will be a literal paradise again and we will live long and strong. Nothing will disturb the peace and serenity of Kingdom life or harm any of those who live there.

Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will enter into God’s Kingdom. No one who is righteous and walking in love for the Lord and others will be excluded from its many blessings. If we have served the Lord faithfully, we will be appointed kings and priests and rule and reign with Christ Himself. We will share in His very own honor and glory.

Righteous Judgment

2Corinthians 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad.”

Christ will deal with all evil at His coming. Both the living and the dead will be judged with a fair and equitable judgment. He alone is perfectly righteous, and He will determine who will receive blessings and who deserves punishment. He will judge both men and angels and mete out equitable, eternal rewards and punishments. His decisions will be total and complete, final and permanent.

Our Lord and Savior is a righteous judge, but He will not be prone to compromise of any kind. He will not be lenient with the wicked, nor will He be persuaded to lower His perfect standards for judgment in any way. Those who are rebellious and disobedient will be punished in the eternal lake of fire. Only the righteous will be able to enter into the presence of God and enjoy His blessings.

The Lord will gather His people into the Kingdom of God for all of eternity. He will bind up all our wounds and give us joy and peace instead of our former pain and sorrow. There will be no death and disease. Both the living and the dead will be changed in the twinkling of an eye and our redemption will be completed, as we put on our new, glorious, resurrection bodies that live forever.

Jesus Christ will grant eternal rewards to those who have faithfully served Him. He will share His very own honor and glory with His Body and His Bride. He will boast of us to all creation and make us a praise on the earth. We will have the heathen for our inheritance and serve as kings and priests of our God. We will judge both men and angels and rule and reign with Christ for all of eternity.

Revelation 11:18 “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”

Jesus Christ is the only righteous judge. He will judge all living creatures. The dead will be raised back to life and stand before the mercy seat, as well. All the nations of the world will be evaluated to determine whether they have been peaceful and righteous. No one will escape the Lord’s scrutiny; both the great and small will be judged with fair and equitable standards for all. Christ’s decisions will be final and permanent; there will be no second chances given.

We should judge ourselves so that we do not have to be judged. The household of God will not be excluded from Christ’s assessment. Only He will determine who is entitled to receive eternal rewards and abundant blessings in the Kingdom of God. The proud, arrogant and hypocritical will be expelled to the lake of fire for punishment. All the rebellious and unrighteous will be rooted out for all of eternity. Only those who are humble and sincere and do the will of His Father can enter into His Kingdom.

The Lord Himself plans to take up residence with us, and nothing defiling can be in His presence. He will not have His people contaminated in any way. Love and unity, peace and prosperity, safety and security will be perpetual blessings for all who enter in to the Kingdom of God. The faithful will be generously rewarded for our humble service to the Lord and to others. He will boast of us to all creation and supply all that we need in abundance, even before we ask Him.

1Corinthians 15:24 “Then [cometh] the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.”

Earthly kingdoms and governments will soon be absorbed into the Kingdom of God and will be subject to the government of God and His justice system. There will be no war or insurrection, no violence and bloodshed, no oppression or exploitation any longer. All men will dwell in peace and unity or be expelled from the Kingdom for all eternity. The Lord will not tolerate anything to defile His people any longer.

Mankind will soon acknowledge our Lord and Savior as their King. Jesus Christ will make certain that we live free of fear and molestation of any kind; nothing evil will ever come near the Kingdom of God. Christ will rule with a rod of iron and enforce Kingdom principles of righteousness and justice for all men. He will deliver the Kingdom to His Father as a fitting tribute to our Creator’s everlasting power and glory.

The Father will dwell with us intimately for all of eternity, as He has planned from the foundation of the world. He will take an active role in our lives and provide all of our needs in abundance even before we ask Him. Our God will be honored and praised, as He so rightly deserves. We will worship Him in Spirit and in truth, as He desires, and all those in the Kingdom will keep His sabbaths and feast days forever.

Rewards For The Righteous

Psalm 58:11 “So that a man shall say, Verily [there is] a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.”

No one will escape Christ’s fair and equitable judgment. It will be final and permanent. There is a just reward stored up for those who have obeyed God and walked in His ways. All the righteous will enter into the Kingdom of God. As long as we have sanctified ourselves in the truth and done the will of the Father, we will enjoy eternal blessings of peace and prosperity, safety and security.

Our mortal bodies that are susceptible to decay will be changed into glorious, resurrection bodies that are impervious to disease and death. We will be healthy and vigorous all the days of our lives and dwell forever in the presence of God Himself. We will see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come. Nothing will interfere with our health and well-being.

The Lord, Jesus Christ, will finally meet us face-to-face, and we will be like Him in every way. He will not forget our dedicated service to Him in ushering in His Kingdom. He will share all the bounty of the universe with us and glorify us before His people. We will dwell in the presence of God for all eternity and fellowship intimately with Him, as we give Him all the praise He deserves.

Very soon now, every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that “Jesus Christ is Lord over all of creation.” He will share His very own honor and glory with us. The Lord will appoint us as kings and priests of His people. We will judge both men and angels and have the heathen for our inheritance. All men will finally look up to us and our names will become a praise on the earth.

Luke 12:8 “Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:”

It is critical that we share our faith with zeal and enthusiasm. The Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is powerful for destroying yokes and removing burdens. It is our obligation to spread the Word of God to others, so that they can be set free in the truth, as we have been. There is a full number of souls that must be harvested before heaven can come to the earth realm. Evangelism should be our primary goal.

We must reach every man, woman and child on this planet and permit them the opportunity to be saved, baptized and enter into the Kingdom of God. There is no one who is too incorrigible that the Blood of Christ cannot save him. It is the Lord’s desire that we reach all of mankind and reconcile them to Him. We will have many blessings and generous rewards for our faithful service to His people.

Those who have preached the Gospel will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. He will boast of us to all creation. We will rule and reign with Him for all of eternity and have the heathen for our inheritance. We will be appointed kings and priests and govern with righteousness, justice and equity for all of God’s people. The Lord will take vengeance on all our enemies and vindicate us before both men and angels.

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

The dead in Christ will rise from the dead and face eternal judgment with the rest of us. All those who have been righteous will enter the Kingdom of God, while the evil will be expelled to the lake of fire. Our bodies will be changed to be like that of Jesus Christ Himself. We will put on totally incorruptible, glorious, resurrection bodies that live forever free of disease and death.

We will inherit all the blessings of the Kingdom of God, as well. We will long enjoy the work of our hands and build habitations that no man can take from us. We will walk in love and unity with others and be reunited with our friends and family. Peace and prosperity will be the norm, and there will be safety and security for all men. Life will be a veritable paradise in God’s Kingdom.

The Kingdom of God is our inheritance for righteousness. We will be honored and glorified just as Christ Himself will be. He will rule with justice, and He will confer all His power and authority on us to govern His people with fairness and equality. We will have praise instead of our former shame, and all men will look up to us as their overseers and judges, kings and priests for all eternity.

We will have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth. We will teach all men to walk in love, peace and unity, as the Lord desires. There will be nothing that defiles the serenity of Kingdom life. We will make certain that no evil ever enters in to disturb our God or His people. Life will be pure and simple and all of mankind will thrive under our benevolent care.

Ezekiel 37:27 “My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

We will soon dwell with the Lord Himself in the Kingdom. He will take an active role in our lives and never leave us or forsake us. He will boast of us to all creation, and meet all of our needs in abundance even before we ask Him. We will not remember our former sorrow and pain; the Lord will blot them from our memory. We will have continuous joy in God’s presence.

The Kingdom of God will be a virtual paradise for both men and God to dwell in for all eternity. We will interact with others in love and unity and join both men and angels in worshipping our Creator. All generations will know the Lord and give Him all the thanks and praise that He deserves. He will be a God to us, and we will be His people that walk in His ways.

We can only imagine what life will be like in the presence of our awesome God. He will be a Father to us, as He has always intended to be. The Bible tells us that His glory will be the perpetual light in the Kingdom. He will anticipate all of our needs and we will share in all the wealth of the universe. We are going back to our origin in the new, improved Garden of Eden!

Chapter 8 – Heaven And Earth Made One

 

Acts 3:19-20 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.”

There’s a new day coming when the people of God will be refreshed and rewarded, honored and glorified. We will have everything that we have lost restored to us, as the Kingdom of God is ushered in to the earth. This is the fulfillment of our redemption that has been promised to us for thousands of years. The Lord will totally recompense His people for their loyal faith and devoted service to Him. We will not be ashamed for our faith; the Lord will reward us for our patience and trust.

However, we need to be totally sold out to the things of God and committed to His way of doing things and being right. We cannot afford to be doing our own thing at this particular juncture. We have eternal destinies that require us to renounce our sin and walk uprightly before Him. It goes without saying, that we must obey all of His commandments and walk in love and righteousness. So too, we must be ready, willing and able to serve Him in fulfilling His eternal redemption plan.

There is significant work that must be done to prepare the earth for the return of her King. The Gospel of the Kingdom must be preached with power and conviction, so that men can be set free in the truth. We should heal and deliver them of all their afflictions. We must speak to all world governments to make certain that Kingdom principles of righteousness and justice prevail. All of creation must be renewed and reorganized and made subject to man’s authority once again.

Jesus will soon return, as He has promised us that He will. He is waiting for the restitution of all things. When the Body of Christ has fully prepared the earth, as we have been instructed that we should do, He will be free to appear again as He promised. We must put all enemies under Christ’s feet and gather in the full end-time harvest of souls that the Lord has planned from the beginning of time. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be converted and saved.

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

The sons of God have divine destinies to fulfill in the critical days that lie ahead. We cannot shirk our duties or important work will remain undone. The entire earth must be prepared for the return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign. We must rid it of defilement and take dominion over all matters that impact men’s lives. We will overcome all evil with good and exercise our God-given authority, as we are ordained to do.

We will restructure and reorganize all world governments to line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all. We will restore peace and order on the earth. We will set all of creation free of decay and destruction, so that the climate is temperate and predictable once again. Plants and animals will be re-created in harmony with one another and subject to man’s dominion, as they were in the Garden of Eden.

The earth will be cleansed and purified, so that Christ can return to receive His Kingdom from us. The Kingdom of God will be a literal paradise for both God and man to enjoy. Everything will be decent and orderly. There will be no chaos and confusion, darkness and destruction, war and violence in the presence of our awesome God. The Lord will make certain that all evil is expelled from His everlasting Kingdom.

Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” 

Jesus Christ will rule with a rod of iron to make certain that nothing evil harms or defiles us ever again. He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and protect the peace and serenity of Kingdom life. He will change our mortal bodies to be like His very own, so that disease and death no longer have a hold on us. He will be a just and righteous King and restore all that we have lost or had stolen form us. God’s people will have a full recompense for all the pain and suffering that they have endured over the years.

Righteous men, women and children from all races, tongues and nations will join together with angels and saints to populate the Kingdom of God. There will be peace and prosperity, joy and freedom, safety and security. The Lord will finally be surrounded with all those whom He has called from the foundation of the world. All creatures will abide in love, peace and unity and worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, as He so desires. We will go up to Jerusalem to celebrate all of His sabbaths and perpetual feast days.

The sun will no longer shine by day, nor the moon by night. The glory of the Lord Himself will be our eternal light in the Kingdom of God. He will dwell with us in all of His majesty and take an intimate interest in all the details of our lives. We will live long and strong and be blessed with eternal riches in abundance. We will build beautiful homes for our large families and see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come. We will experience heaven on the earth in a veritable paradise.

Awaiting His Return

1Corinthians 1:30 “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:”

Christ died to save us from our sins and to bring us life in abundance to the overflow. Our redemption is secure. If we believe in all that He did for us, we are justified by our faith. We are deemed righteous only in Him and we receive divine wisdom to operate just as He did. Christ will fill us with His very own anointing power and authority to function at optimal capacity in the days ahead.

Our sanctification must be taken to an entirely new level, as the return of Jesus Christ approaches. We can no longer be content with half measures. Our hearts must be totally circumcised and in synch with the Lord. Our behavior must be above and beyond reproach. We should be walking worthy of our calling and doing the Lord’s work on the earth in humble service to both Him and His people.

We must fight the good fight of faith. We have eternal destinies to fulfill; we should imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ and take up His ministry where He left off. He has commissioned us to preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead in His name. We will call everything to divine order to make certain there is finally peace on the earth, and restore all of creation.

The Body of Christ will destroy all demonic strongholds that have oppressed men in any way and kept them in their bondage to sin. We will bind all of Satan’s efforts to impede the coming of the Kingdom and loose many blessings on the earth instead. We will set men free by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and they will be restored to our God, as He has planned from the foundation of the world.

Colossians 3:24 “Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.”

When Christ returns, we should be found ministering to His people with a love, mercy and compassion to match His own. The full end-time harvest of souls must be gathered in and prepared to meet their Savior. No one should be sick or oppressed. We must set them free for all of eternity. We will even raise the dead back to life. We have the power to overcome all evil with good, as the Lord desires.

The Kingdom of God will be a veritable paradise for both God and man to enjoy. The Lord will take up residence with us as our Creator Father. He will meet our needs in abundance from all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom for all of eternity, as He has promised us.

We will enjoy a generous reward for all of our efforts on His behalf. Christ will share His eternal Kingdom with us as our inheritance for humble service to Him and His people. We will have honor and glory instead of our former shame. We will even judge both men and angels. The Lord will appoint us as kings and priests of God, and we will rule and reign with Christ over all the nations of the world.

1Corinthians 1:7-8 “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.”

We have been given a great and wonderful privilege to serve the Lord in fulfilling His eternal redemption plan. We should come behind in no good gift, as we wait for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to return to rule and reign in His Kingdom. We must take full advantage of our position and wipe out all evil on the face of the earth. We should minister to His people with joy and enthusiasm. The Lord will be pleased and grant us many eternal rewards for devoted service to Him.

The Body of Christ will be hard at work in fulfilling its eternal destiny in the days that lie ahead. We will perform a wide variety of miracles, signs and wonders to demonstrate the Lord’s love, mercy and compassion for His people. He has promised that we will heal all who are sick and infirm and restore them to good health and wellness. We will deliver all captives of enemy oppression, so that they are free of their afflictions and bad habits that held them in perpetual bondage.

The final enemy – death – must also be put under Christ’s feet before He will return to us to rule and reign. We will be given power and authority to raise the dead and call them back to life, so they can enjoy Kingdom blessings. We will all receive new resurrection bodies that live forever in the presence of our God. Death has already lost its sting with Christ’s resurrection from the dead thousands of years ago. We must follow His example and also take dominion over death.

Hebrews 10:30-1 “For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

Once we have put all enemies under Christ’s feet, He will be free to return to us for the consummation of all things and to rule and reign as a righteous King in the Kingdom of God. He will not come as the meek and mild Lamb of God this time, however. He has vengeance in His heart, because of the suffering and pain that His people have been forced to endure for so long. He will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming.

His angelic army will set all matters straight. All evil will be removed from the face of the earth for all time. No one that is prone to rebellion and lawlessness will remain unpunished. Anything that defiles us will be eliminated from the Kingdom of God. The Lord Himself will dwell with us, and nothing evil can reside in His presence. Only the righteous and faithful will be permitted to enter into the Kingdom of God and receive His eternal blessings.

Jesus Christ is the only righteous judge, and He will judge both men and angels. No one will escape His scrutiny; even the dead will be raised back to life and judged by their works in the flesh. All the nations of the world will be held accountable for fairness and justice to His people. He will punish all the unjust and expel them from His presence for all eternity. He will bind Satan in the abyss, so that He can no longer tempt, defile or oppress the people of God.

He Will Be Our God

Hebrews 8:10 “For this [is] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:”

There will be no evil to mar the perfection of life in the Kingdom of God. The Lord Himself will dwell there, and nothing that defiles can be in His presence. Life will be continually safe and secure, peaceful and prosperous. Everyone will know the Lord from the least to the greatest, and no one will have to be taught His ways. We will have His laws written in our minds and hearts.

He will be a God to us, and we will be His people called by His holy name. We will fellowship intimately with one another for all of eternity. All men will be righteous and loving, as the Lord requires us to be. He will provide us with all that we need to lead healthy and happy lives. We will be reunited with lost loved ones and death itself will be abolished, so that we all live forever.

We will give the Lord all the praise and honor that He deserves. All men will worship Him in Spirit and in truth. We will keep His perpetual feast days and gather in Jerusalem, as He has planned. We will fellowship with Him in all the intimacy that a father requires, and He will take an active role in our daily lives. The glory of the Lord will surround us and be an eternal light to His people.

Psalm 51:12 “Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.”

Very soon now, the Lord will vindicate His people for all time, and restore what has been taken from us over the years. His hand is not shortened to keep His promises; He will punish our enemies and defend us from all harm. He will usher us into the Kingdom of God, so that we dwell in the peace and prosperity, safety and security of His very presence for all eternity.

The Lord wants to be a father to His family all over the world. The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ was the firstborn of many sons and daughters. We are joint-heirs with Him to eternal promises. Our heavenly Father will provide all of our needs and anticipate all that we require to lead healthy, happy lives. He will give us joy for our former sorrow and bind up all our wounds.

All men will be blessed in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will supply our needs even before we ask Him. All the wealth of the universe will be released to us for our pleasure. We will experience joy and gladness, and live in peace and unity with our neighbors. Our children and our children’s children will all know the Lord and give Him the praise that He so rightly deserves.

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

It is the Lord’s heart-felt desire to establish a permanent covenant of peace with us and take up residency on the earth in the Kingdom of God. He wants nothing more than to fellowship with His people, as He has purposed since the foundation of the world. Now that our righteousness is no longer in question, He can dwell with us for all of eternity. We will have perpetual peace in His very presence.

He will be a generous, loving Father to us and meet all of our needs. All men will give the Lord the praise and honor that He deserves. He will no longer be an after-thought in our lives; He will soon be the focal point of our attention. We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days with all the angels and saints. The Kingdom of God will be filled with His glory and the joyous worship of all His creatures.

Our children and our children’s children will all know the Lord and love Him with all their hearts. He will bless all of our offspring and multiply us on the earth, as He has promised. No one will have to be taught the ways of God; His laws will be written in our minds and hearts, so that everyone is righteous. All men will fellowship together in love, peace and unity as brothers, as we are supposed to do.

Kingdom Eligibility

John 3:5-6 “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

Jesus told us the basic criteria for inheriting the Kingdom of God. He said that we must be born again and baptized with water and the Holy Spirit to enter into God’s Kingdom for all eternity. Basically, what that means is that we must accept Him as our Lord and Savior and repent of all our sins. At that point, we should be baptized with water as an outward sign of an inward change.

Then we can ask the Holy Spirit to indwell us in all His fullness, and God’s very own Spirit will come and take residence in us. The Holy Spirit will lead and guide us into all truth and convict us of sin. If we do miss the mark and fall short of God’s glory, we must immediately repent and renounce our sin. The Holy Spirit will help us to grow in spiritual maturity and perfect us, so we can see God.

We should put our spirit man in ascendancy to our flesh and soul if we wish to enter the Kingdom of God. No carnality will be tolerated; all selfishness of the soul will be expelled for all eternity. Only those who are pure in spirit will see God. He will only dwell with those who have purified themselves and walk in righteousness and love for Him and for others, as we have been taught.

Matthew 7:21 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

The Lord explained another factor that is instrumental in His decision whether or not we should enter His Kingdom. We have to be cooperative and willingly do what the Father requires of us. Jesus Christ was totally obedient during His time on the earth. Even though He is God, He laid down His deity in submission to the Father’s will and operated as a mere man.

Jesus was as human as we are, yet perfect in every way. He only did what the Father told Him to do, and said what He heard the Father say. Christ was fully obedient under all circumstances. It was not His deep desire to die a horrible, suffering death. Yet He still surrendered to the Father’s will and voluntarily gave His life for us, so that we could be saved from our sins for all of eternity.

Christ is our role model for righteousness. If we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, lay down our own personal ambitions, crucify our fleshly desires, and walk in love for the Lord and others, we will enter the Kingdom of God one day. There is no other way that we can be saved, except through our faith in Christ and our willingness to cooperate with the Father in all matters.

Now more than ever before, we must take our obedience to a new level of excellence. The Lord has important work for us to do in the days ahead. We have eternal callings and divine destinies as the sons of God. We will be ushering heaven’s way of doing things into the earth. We cannot be selfish or doing our own thing. We must make the Lord’s redemption plan a priority in our lives.

Matthew 18:3 “And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”

So too, we will not see the Kingdom of God without having innocence and trust. We must be holy and blameless if we expect to dwell in the presence of our God for all eternity. He cannot abide with evil, and if we are unrighteous, we cannot inherit His Kingdom. We must be born again and have faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ. We should also be baptized in water and in the Holy Spirit.

We must become as little children and totally rely on God’s promises to us. If we do so, we will be eligible to enter into the Kingdom of God and enjoy all of its blessings. Just because we are pure, innocent and trusting, does not make us weak. There is strength in meekness and gentleness. The Lord will empower us, so that we can serve Him successfully in all that we are called to do.

He will give us a full anointing of His very own power and authority. However, His Spirit takes leave of unworthy vessels. He expects us to be humble and sincere in our devotion for Him and others. We are to be servants of almighty God and show genuine love and affection for His people. If we wish to inherit eternal rewards, we must lay down our lives and embrace our divine callings.

We cannot be proud and arrogant, nor religious and controlling. Criticism and judgment of others is strictly forbidden. The Lord will not tolerate any haughtiness or self-righteousness in His people. All of us have fallen short of the glory of God and require redemption. He desires that we all come to full repentance, believe the truth, and accept His offer of eternal life with all of its benefits.

Kingdom Exclusions

1Corinthians 15:49-50 “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”

God is Spirit, and if we are to dwell with Him for all eternity, we must put our spirit man in ascendancy to our flesh and soul. Unless we are walking in the Spirit rather than our flesh, we will not inherit the Kingdom of God. We should strive for spiritual maturity and aspire to being holy and perfect, even as God is holy and perfect. No evil or defilement will be able to enter into His presence.

We cannot inherit the Kingdom with these mortal bodies that are subject to decay, disease and death. Christ will change our corruptible bodies into glorious, resurrection forms in the twinkling of an eye on His return. There will be such dynamic power released when heaven comes to the earth, that all the dead in Christ will be raised back to life and also receive new bodies that live forever.

There will be nothing corrupt that dwells with almighty God in His Kingdom. Our bodies, souls and spirits will all have to be redeemed to enter into His holy presence. We were created in His very own image and likeness to have intimate fellowship with Him for all of eternity. We will all be changed from the inside out, purged and sanctified, so that we take on the very nature of God Himself.

1Corinthians 6:9-11 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

Jesus will return to banish Satan in the very near future. The Bible says He will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in the wrath of His coming. Christ is not returning as a mere man this time. He has all the dynamic power of the universe at His disposal, and He is sorely vexed that His people have been oppressed for so long. He will vanquish evil off the face of the earth.

No one that purposely sins will escape His scrutiny and judgment. He will punish all those who are unrighteous and reward those who have been faithful to repent from their sin and sanctify themselves. Those who make a habit of committing sexual sins, thievery, idolatry, extortion and other egregious offenses will be totally excluded from God’s Kingdom for all eternity.

Every sin is defiling; there is no such thing as just a little evil. Sin is sin and it requires payback. No evil of any kind will be present in the Kingdom of God. We have to renounce all our sins, regardless of what they are, and abide by God’s moral absolutes. We must overcome all temptation and remain sin free at all times. We should always walk in love and keep the commandments.

The Lord Himself plans on taking up residence with His people when heaven comes to the earth. However, no evil can abide with Him. All that is defiling will be expelled from His Kingdom. Only the loving and righteous will dwell with God and fellowship intimately with Him. Everyone who is committed to evil of any kind will be on the outside looking in and be sent to the lake of fire.

We have been washed clean of all of our sins by the Blood of Jesus Christ, and totally justified through our faith in Him. We must guard our righteousness at all costs and walk circumspectly because the days are now short. If we follow all of the Lord’s guidance and direction and seek His will for our lives, we will be preserved holy and blameless until the coming of our Lord and Savior.

A Warning To All Believers

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

Continual righteousness is not an option for us. We never have an excuse to break any of God’s laws and violate His moral absolutes in any way. While we are indeed covered by the Blood of Christ, deliberate sin will put us under the curse once again and subject us to eternal damnation. It goes without saying, that we must keep all of the Lord’s commandments to us, and walk in love at all times. We cannot compromise our righteousness in any way and expect to enter into the Kingdom of God. The Lord has no patience or mercy for deliberate sin, rebellion or lawlessness of any kind.

All those who have deceived others and minimized the effects of sin in any way will be held strictly accountable in the coming judgment. The Lord is jealous for His people; it is not His will that any man perishes. He hates those who purposely mislead others and cause them to sin. He will not tolerate false teachers injuring His people in any way. He will take vengeance on all enemies in the pulpit who have preached lies instead of the truth. He will destroy all anti-Christ spirits that have promoted false gospels and caused anyone to be driven to spiritual destruction.

There will be a zero tolerance for sin in the days to come. We must choose spiritual maturity, godliness and holiness as a way of life, and strive to sanctify ourselves of all worldly influences. We should put the Lord first in all things and desire His way of doing things rather than our own. We should preach the uncompromised Word of God in all of its power, so that men everywhere can repent, be saved and baptized in our faith. We should teach them principles of righteousness; encourage them to imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ; and strive for godliness in all they do.

Deuteronomy 11:1 “Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.”

The Body of Christ has a divine destiny to fulfill in the days ahead. We have been given a sacred trust and a serious responsibility to share the Gospel of peace with all men, so that they can turn towards the truth and be saved for all of eternity. We cannot be careless or remiss in our duties or important work will remain undone and many souls will be lost forever.

We should not let fear, doubt or unbelief prevent us from doing our part in ushering in the Kingdom of God. No sense of false humility should interfere with our service to our God and to others. We are all vitally important in effecting the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. He will empower us to be totally successful in all that we are called to do.

The Lord wants us to renounce all sin and walk in righteousness and truth with one another. We are to put Him first in all things and show Him all the deference, respect and devotion He deserves. We must also show our love for others and follow all of the Lord’s commandments to us. We can never be deliberately disobedient or we will endure eternal punishment.

We cannot violate any of God’s moral absolutes and remain righteous in His eyes. We must be steadfast in our faith and teach others to obey God’s laws, just as we do. If we are obedient at all times, our salvation will be secure and our eternal rewards will be great in the Kingdom of God. We will receive many blessings and actually dwell in His awesome presence.

Deuteronomy 4:2 “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish [ought] from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”

There is a full number of souls to be harvested in the days ahead; God desires that all men know Him and walk in truth. We should be godly role models and encourage men in righteousness. We must preach the uncompromised Gospel of the Kingdom and persuade many in our faith.

The Lord expects us to correctly interpret His Word, so that all men might be set free. We must keep all His commandments and walk in love. The Gospel message has the power to convict men of sin and lead them into the truth. The Word of God should never ever be compromised.

We should challenge others to seek the truth of the Gospel. While we only sow the seed, the Lord will water the ground and give the increase. It is not our job to correct others or reprimand them on behalf of the Lord. He is eminently capable of leading and guiding them Himself.

None of us is inherently worthy of salvation, but by the grace of God, it is available as a free gift to all of mankind. We cannot have proud and haughty spirits. Our job is to share the truth with others, not convict them of their sins. That is the role of the Holy Spirit of God and Him alone.

Those who criticize and condemn others will be severely judged and excluded from God’s Kingdom. While we will indeed judge both men and angels one day, we have not yet earned that right. We cannot be self-righteous or hypocritical if we wish to enter into the Kingdom of God.

2Chronicles 19:6 “And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who [is] with you in the judgment.”

We will not escape judgment ourselves if we judge others. The Lord hates controlling, religious spirits that keep men from the truth. He loves each of us with a deep abiding love, and it is His greatest desire that all men come to know Him and love Him regardless of their former sinfulness. No one is too incorrigible to repent and be permanently saved from his sin.

All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We must represent His love, mercy and compassion to all men, despite their backgrounds. His grace extends to each of us; He is no respecter of persons. Many who are first now will be last, and the last will be first for all time. The Lord looks on the inner man of the heart and judges righteousness.

If we are given to faultfinding, criticism and condemnation of others, we will be expelled from the Kingdom of God. The Lord abhors pride and arrogance and He will not tolerate judgmental attitudes in His people. Those who exalt themselves will be debased by Him. Only Christ can decide who among us is totally righteous and deserving of His blessings.

Not everyone who considers himself a Christian will enter into the Kingdom of God. Only those who are humble and sincere in their walk with God and purposely do the will of the Father will be eligible. Christ will judge all men Himself to determine if they have been righteous and loving. Anyone who violates the law of love will receive unequivocal punishment.

Eternal Blessings Or Curses

Deuteronomy 11:26-28 “Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day: And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but run aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which you have not known.”

It is not difficult or burdensome to be righteous. We have no excuse for lawlessness and rebellion. We know the truth that has set us free for all time. We must believe in Jesus Christ and His atonement on our behalf. We should proclaim Him as our Lord and Savior. We have to repent of all our sins and be baptized in water and the Holy Spirit. We must obey the Lord and all of His commandments to us, so we will be deemed righteous in His eyes and eligible to enter into His Kingdom for all eternity.

The blessings that we will receive are unbelievable and well worth our effort. We will walk in love and unity with all men and fellowship intimately with them as brothers. We will have new, glorious, resurrection bodies that live forever in the very presence of our God. The Lord will provide all our needs and we will have peace and prosperity for all time. He will restore all that has been taken from us and avenge all our wrongs. He will destroy all evil that might harm us or interfere with our blessings.

However, if we choose to be rebellious and forsake our God and His way of doing things, we will suffer eternal damnation. Christ Himself will punish us and exclude us from entering into His Kingdom. We will experience anguish and pain, instead of joy and pleasure. We will be separated from our God for all eternity, and subject to natural death and spiritual destruction for our transgressions. We will be forever banished and punished in the lake of fire, while others have eternal life given to them.

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, [that] I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, [and] that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he [is] thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them. ”

There are lasting ramifications for the choices we make in our lives. We can choose life or death, blessings or curses. Our free will guarantees that to us, and the Lord will not override it in any way. No matter how much He loves us and longs to fellowship with us as His sons and daughters, He will never impose Himself on us or force us to embrace the truth of the Gospel.

Many will enter the Kingdom of God for all of eternity and reap its many blessings. But there will also be some who continuously reject the truth and walk in the ways of the world into perdition. They will ultimately be on the outside looking in, while the righteous enjoy eternal life and all its benefits. No one can make the choice for us; we must purposely choose life over death.

We should cling to the Lord and desire His way of doing things over everything else. We cannot be both worldly and Kingdom minded. We must walk in righteousness at all times and obey all the Lord’s commandments to us, as we were taught. We have to take our love and obedience to a brand new level if we wish to inherit the Kingdom of God, as the Lord has promised to us.

It will one day be too late to repent and be saved in the one true faith. The Gospel is being preached all over the world now! The Lord is not obligated to wait for all eternity for men to come to a full knowledge of the truth. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth from those who are excluded from God’s Kingdom. They will be banished to punishment in the lake of fire for all time.

Called To His Kingdom

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

The Lord knew us from the foundation of the world. We were created in His very own image and likeness. He wants nothing more than to fellowship with us for all eternity, as it was planned from the beginning of time. However, sin interrupts that fellowship. God is holy and perfect, and He cannot associate with anything that is evil.

If we wish to have a strong relationship with the Lord, then we must always strive to remain sin free. Our faith in Jesus Christ has made us righteous, and we should walk as He walked on the earth. He had a close, intimate relationship with the Father. He prayed before He did anything, and the Lord always gave Him guidance and direction.

We need that type of interaction with God, if we are to walk worthy of our calling and be of service to Him in the days that are ahead. We have eternal destinies that will impact the entire world. We must hear from the Lord clearly and promptly obey Him, if we would be of effective service in ushering in the Kingdom of God on the earth.

Our righteousness and obedience must be above and beyond reproach. We cannot be doing our own thing or walking in sin and rebellion of any type. All men are watching us to see if we will be godly examples. We must be living testimonies to the power of God at work in our own lives before we can effectively witness to others.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

We cannot properly serve the Lord unless we are totally righteous. We must strive to be sin free and remain in right standing with Him at all times. It goes without saying, that we must follow His commandments and walk in love for Him and for others. We should sanctify our flesh and subdue our soul ambitions and make His eternal redemption plan a top priority in our lives.

We cannot be doing our own thing; the fate of the entire world is at stake. If we fail to respond to the Lord’s call on our lives, important work will remain undone and the Kingdom of God will not manifest as quickly as it should. We cannot be passive and wait for others to do all the work. We must rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing and cooperate with the all the Lord’s plans for us.

We have vital work to do to usher in the Kingdom of God. We must fulfill our divine destinies and preach the Gospel all over the world. We should tell all of mankind how much God loves them and desires their salvation. It is not His will that any man perishes for lack of knowledge in the truth. He wants us all to seek His mercy and repent of our sins, so that we can be saved to eternal life.

We will soon inherit all the blessings of the Kingdom of God as a reward for our righteousness and faithful service to the Lord and His people. Nothing will in any way harm or defile us ever again. We will have perpetual peace and safety in the very presence of God Himself. He will supply all of our needs in abundance and fellowship intimately with us as our Father for all of eternity.

2Peter 1:11 “For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”

We are sons and daughters of almighty God Himself and we have rights and privileges. But we also have a sacred responsibility to fulfill our divine destinies. We cannot shrink back in false humility or out of fear, doubt and unbelief. We have to rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing and take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. Much depends on our willingness and obedience.

The Lord desires to partner with us in ushering in His Kingdom, and we should accommodate all of His needs. We must consecrate and dedicate our lives to divine service in the days ahead. We will preach the Gospel message to all the world and perform miraculous signs and wonders to attract men everywhere to the truth. We will fight the good fight of faith and be successful in all we do.

We are future citizens of the Kingdom of God, and His way of doing things and being right should take precedence with us. We cannot be both worldly and spiritually minded. We should desire the things of God more than the things of the world and renounce all our sin. We must destroy all evil and set men free to walk in truth. We will soon possess the Kingdom and all its many blessings.

The Lord promises us peace and prosperity in the Kingdom of God. We will experience joy and gladness instead of sorrow and shame. We will have good health and live forever in His loving presence. He will boast of us to all creation and give us eternal rewards for our faithful service to Him. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, and rule and reign with Him for all eternity.

Thy Kingdom Come

Luke 11:2 “And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.”

Jesus taught us how to pray the Lord’s Prayer when He walked on the earth the first time. He wanted us to pray for the coming of the Kingdom of God, so that it would become a reality in our lifetime. We should fervently desire that the Kingdom manifest in the very near future, so that the Lord’s way of doing things and being right will come to the earth realm as planned for so long.

Unless we petition the Lord to intervene in our affairs, He cannot legally do so. The heavens are His, but the earth He has given to men. If we wish to see heaven’s way of doing things prevail on the earth, then we must pray and ask the Father to usher in His Kingdom. The Lord’s Prayer should not be something we just recite from memory, but an urgent plea for His divine intervention.

We should cry out to God for His help in setting matters straight on the earth. He will imbue us with His very own divine power and authority to overcome all evil with good. We will destroy all the works of Satan and establish peace, order and stability in this world. We will preach the Gospel and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Christ is coming to the earth in His people to rectify all matters here, even before He actually returns to us Himself. He wants us to be responsive to His will and correct the imbalance that exists. We will have to fight the good fight of faith and take the Kingdom of God by force. No evil or defilement will be permitted to continue. We will overcome it with good and prevail in all matters.

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

There is tremendous turmoil and confusion, darkness and destruction all around us at this time. We need the Lord’s active participation in our affairs to set things right on the earth for all time. If we are earnest in our prayers for the birthing of His Kingdom, it may very well be that He hastens its coming to the earth, so that all of our problems can be permanently solved as He promised.

We should visualize heaven coming to the earth and actually see it in the spirit realm in order for it to manifest in the natural, as we desire. If we believe the Kingdom of God will soon be ushered in, we should decree it here in all of its awesome majesty. We can literally speak it into existence with our faith-based words that line up with the Word of God and His promises to us.

So too, we must be obedient and do all that the Lord asks of us in the days to come. He will have us preach the Gospel and work miracles, signs and wonders in His name. We will overcome all evil with good and set matters straight on the earth. There will be no more war and violence, chaos and destruction. Our God will move through us to establish peace, order and stability everywhere.

The Lord will protect us from all evil and assist us in our efforts to bring heaven to the earth. He will assign us legions of ministering angels to back us up. We will bind the devil and all his minions and take back our dominion over the entire earth. We will insist that all world governments line up with Kingdom principles of justice and command all of nature to be in divine order.

Isaiah 1:19 “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

We should be willing and ready to do everything that the Lord asks us in ushering in His Kingdom. He will have us preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to others and minister to the sick and the oppressed. He may even have us raise the dead back to life again. We are the Body of Christ on the earth and the Lord needs our cooperation to bring heaven itself into the earth realm.

He will fill us with His very own anointing so that we can take dominion over everything that is evil. All world politics and economics will eventually line up with the Word of God. There will be peace and order in this world, as God’s people rise up in their kingly and priestly destinies. We will eliminate all war and conflict and put an end to violence, oppression and exploitation.

We will take back control of all creation as we usher in the Kingdom of God for all the world to see. Plants and animals will be in harmony once again and subject to mankind. The climate will be regulated and there will be no more natural disasters that cause suffering and destruction. All the effects of pollution will be reversed and the earth will be a veritable paradise as it used to be.

Our God will supply all of our needs in abundance in the Kingdom. We will enjoy peace and prosperity, love and unity with all men. In addition to that, He will actually take up residence with His people. We will fellowship with Him as His very own sons and daughters. We will bask in His glory for all of eternity, and give Him all the thanks and praise that He so rightly deserves.

Ephesians 1:10 “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:”

Heaven itself is coming to the earth realm with a flourish of God’s power and glory. We should anticipate that fact and walk in Kingdom principles for living even now. We cannot be both worldly and spiritually minded; we should desire God’s way of doing things above all else. We will soon enter into an eternal existence that we can only imagine.

The Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be an awesome place to live for all time. He will root out all evil and rule with a rod of iron, so that we have perpetual safety and security. No one will oppress us or take anything from us ever again. We will long enjoy the work of our hands and relish our time with the Lord and His people.

We will have glorious, resurrection bodies that never grow old and decay. We will enjoy eternal life and have all of our needs generously supplied by the Lord Himself. He has all the wealth of the universe stored up to distribute to His people. He will lavish us with all spiritual and temporal blessings, and anticipate anything that we require to be happy.

All men will be righteous and godly in the Kingdom of God. We will dwell in love, peace and unity with our neighbors. God’s laws will be written in our minds and in our hearts, so that we are continually righteous. We will worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth at all times, and keep all of His sabbaths and feast days as He requires them of us.

The Kingdom Comes In Power

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

The enemy is launching his last concerted effort; he does not want heaven to be ushered into the earth in the Kingdom of God. The Body of Christ must forcibly execute the Lord’s eternal redemption plan and bind Satan and all of his minions from interfering with our work. We must take back our dominion over all matters in the earth and usher in God’s Kingdom, as He has planned.

Nothing will stop us from doing what we have been called to do. The Lord has legions of ministering angels to assist us in gathering the end-time harvest of souls that is required. We will work miracles, signs and wonders through the powerful anointing that the Lord Himself will confer on us. The sick will be healed; demons will be cast out; and the dead will be raised back to life.

We cannot sit back and be passive. We must seek the Lord’s guidance and direction and be quick to respond to His call to action whenever and however He dictates it. We must proactively take possession of the Kingdom of God and overcome all that is evil with good. Mankind must be set free in the truth, so that they can join us in receiving eternal life with all the Kingdom blessings.

Jeremiah 1:9-10 “Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.”

The Kingdom of God is literally within us. There is a spark of the divine in each and every believer. We are sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. If we walk in love and righteousness, and appropriate the Lord’s own anointing power and authority, nothing will be impossible to us. All of heaven will back us in our efforts to fight the good fight of faith and implement godly standards.

Our words that line up with the Word and the will of God will impact all of mankind. We are meant to take dominion over everything in this world. We will destroy all forms of evil and establish the Kingdom way of life all over the earth, so that Jesus Christ can return here to rule and reign for all of eternity. We will speak to seemingly impossible situations and see miraculous results occur.

We will challenge all world governments to line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice, and abolish all oppression of innocent men. There will soon be peace and order everywhere. We will restore all of creation back to its original beauty and balance and decree plants and animals to be in harmony once again. We will take control over the climate and eliminate natural disasters.

The Body of Christ is determined to pave the way for Jesus Christ’s return and we will put all His enemies under His feet, including death. Heaven’s way of doing things will be established on the earth, as the Lord desires. We will tear down all enemy strongholds, set mankind free from bondage of all types, and overcome all evil with good in everything that we do to usher in the Kingdom.

Mark 9:1 “And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.”

If we all do our part and serve the Lord faithfully to bring in His end-time harvest of souls, we will see the Kingdom of God ushered in on the earth in our generation. Not all of us will die and go to heaven. Christ’s Kingdom will come with such a glorious manifestation of explosive, raw power that even our mortal, decaying bodies will be forever changed in the twinkling of an eye.

When Jesus Christ returns, He will precipitate a tremendous release of energy into the universe. The natural elements themselves will all be transformed in the twinkling of an eye. The Bible tells us that His feet will touch down on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem and cause a massive earthquake that will be felt all over the world. His return will be dramatic and life changing for all.

It will be the very same type of dynamic power released that the Lord used to create the earth and raise Jesus Christ from the dead. The entire planet will be shaken and re-created in one fell swoop; the whole universe will be affected for good and all evil will be destroyed. The Kingdom of God will be the spectacular culmination of the Lord’s eternal redemption plan for all mankind.

All wrongs will be righted; all disease and death will be overturned; all war, violence and conflict will cease; all things will be made new. God’s people will be in positions of prominence and never lack for any good thing in their lives. Christ will rule with a rod of iron to ensure that Kingdom integrity is maintained at all times. There will be nothing that defiles or harms God’s people ever again.

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

The Kingdom will come with manifestations of divine power, and be perpetually sustained by the power and authority of Jesus Christ Himself. He will eradicate all the ungodly and their ungodliness in His coming and banish Satan to the abyss. Christ will rule and reign as a just King and make certain that Kingdom principles are strictly enforced, so that all men live free of oppression and evil influence.

He will share His very own honor and glory with the Body of Christ and with His Bride, the Church. He will boast of us to all creation, and we will rule and reign with Him for all eternity. We will help Him judge both men and angels, and make certain that His people’s needs are fully satisfied. Jesus will take vengeance on all our enemies and restore all that has been taken from us over the years.

We will have many blessings and eternal rewards for our faithfulness. We will have the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth, and men will give us respect and praise for our former shame and scorn. We will be kings and priests of God, and judges and overseers of His people. We will govern fairly and justly. All men will walk in love and unity, and there will finally be peace on the earth.

Life In The Kingdom Of God

Luke 13:29 “And they shall come from the east, and [from] the west, and from the north, and [from] the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.”

The Lord is gathering His people into the Kingdom of God from all over the face of the earth. He calls out to each of us and persuades us to embrace the truth. It is not His intent that any man perishes for lack of knowledge. He wants everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life to be converted, saved and baptized in our faith, so that we inherit eternal life.

We will soon be reunited with loved ones who have been long gone. All the righteous dead in Christ will be raised from the dead to dwell in His Kingdom for all eternity. We will be privileged to associate with the Old Testament prophets and the New Testament saints. We will all share equally in eternal Kingdom blessings of peace and prosperity, safety and security.

The Kingdom of God will be represented by every race, tongue and nation in the world. All the righteous from all over the earth will be welcomed in. Those who have served the Lord faithfully in ushering in His Kingdom will be just rulers and overseers of God’s people. They will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory and be appointed kings and priests to His people.

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

All the righteous – past, present and future – will enter into the Kingdom of God. The earth will be a veritable paradise again and the glory of the Lord will manifest for all time. All of nature will be beautiful and in harmony with man. The plants and animals will all be under our dominion again. Nothing will hurt or destroy in all of God’s Kingdom.

The Kingdom itself will be comprised of all earthly kingdoms plus heavenly realms. We will be in awe at how gorgeous and expansive it will be. Both men and angels will come and go freely from place to place and interact with one another peacefully. The Lord will change our language back to a pure one, so that we might understand one another and communicate easily.

The Holy Spirit of God will prevail in His Kingdom, so that no evil can harm us in any way. We will experience righteousness, peace and joy as a way of life. God’s people will live forever and long enjoy the work of their hands. We will build beautiful houses and dwell with our families and friends for generation after generation in health and vitality.

Isaiah 30:26 “Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.”

The glory of the Lord Himself will be the eternal light in His Kingdom. He will bind up all our wounds and restore all that has been taken from us over the years. He will take vengeance on all our enemies and vindicate us with both men and angels. We will have our honor and property restored to us and Satan will not try to steal our birthright from us ever again.

Jesus Christ will rule and reign with a rod of iron to maintain Kingdom principles. He will make certain that we have safety and security, joy and freedom. No violence or conflict, oppression or exploitation, will ever touch us again. All evil will be removed far from us. The Lord will ensure that peace, justice and righteousness prevail in His Kingdom.

The people of God will share in all the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. The Lord will be generous in meeting all of our needs. We will not even have to ask Him to provide for us. He will restore anything that we have lost. All that we have suffered over the years will be forgotten in the joy and comfort of His loving presence for all of eternity.

Kingdom Blessings

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.”

It is the Lord’s deepest desire that all men would come to know, love and obey Him. He wants to fellowship with us, but insists that we keep all of His commandments. He has made plans to take up residence with His people in the Kingdom of God for all eternity. He will bless us with all that the universe has to offer us, and supply all of our needs even before we ask Him.

We will never suffer from poverty and lack, oppression and exploitation ever again. All evil will be removed far from us. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and protect us from all harm. We will not be afraid of anyone or anything. We will have perpetual peace and serenity in the Kingdom. Life will be comfortable and filled with simple pleasures that we can all enjoy.

The Lord will restore all that we have lost over the years, and even blot our pain and sorrow from our memory. He will give us joy and gladness, peace and prosperity, safety and security forever. We will walk in love and unity with all men and have eternal rewards for our faithful service to Him. Jesus Christ will share His own honor and glory with us, as we rule and reign with Him.

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

God wants to share all that He is and all that He has with His people. He created us from the foundation of the world to fellowship intimately with Him. He wants to take an active role in our lives and bless us with eternal riches both temporal and spiritual. He will protect us from all evil and provide for our every need. We will enjoy all the blessings that life has to offer, with no downside.

There will be no evil or defilement that contaminates our lives. The Lord Himself will dwell with us to ensure that we are safe and secure. He will destroy all of our enemies and show us how to walk in love and unity with one another, so that there is finally peace on the earth. All those who dwell in the Kingdom will be righteous; God’s laws will be written on our minds and in our hearts.

The Lord desires that all men come to a full knowledge of the truth in the days ahead, so that they can freely share in His Kingdom blessings. As the Body of Christ on the earth, we must make every effort to evangelize the entire earth. We have to fight the good fight of faith and prevail, so that men, women and children in every nation of the world can join us in the Kingdom of God.

Ephesians 1:3 “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ:”

We are blessed to be a blessing. We should bless all those with whom we come in contact. The Lord Himself will assist us in all our efforts to serve Him and His people in the days to come. He will impart a full anointing of His very own power and authority to us, so that we can work miracles, signs and wonders to attract all men to Him and a full knowledge of the truth.

We will heal the sick, deliver all captives free of enemy oppression and even raise the dead back to life again. The Lord will be with us in all that we are called to do. We will reach out in love, mercy and compassion to a people in darkness, despair and disillusionment. We will take back the entire planet for Jesus Christ and eagerly await His return to rule and reign.

We will prepare the earth for heaven’s blessings by reorganizing all world governments to line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and equality for all men. There will ultimately be peace on the earth and war and insurrection will be a thing of the past. So too, all of creation will be released from decay and destruction into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

We will see tangible results of our faith when we serve the Lord in implementing His eternal redemption plan. There will be peace, order and stability all over the face of the earth, as a result of our efforts. We will prepare the hearts of men to receive their King and bring life, light and love to a world that is hungry for the knowledge of our God and His way of doing things.

Eternal Rewards For Righteousness

Deuteronomy 30:16 “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.”

The Lord insists that we follow all His commandments and walk in unselfish love for one another.

We cannot compromise godly principles in any way if we desire to enter into the Kingdom of God.

We should embrace our divine callings and be actively engaged in service to the Lord’s eternal redemption plan. We have unique destinies; we cannot shrink back in fear, doubt or unbelief.

Those who serve the Lord faithfully in the days ahead will have eternal rewards for their efforts.

Our God will not easily forget who has fought the good fight of faith. He will boast of us to all creation. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory, and rule and reign with Him. The Lord will reward us richly, as we enter into the blessings of His everlasting Kingdom.

We will have the heathen for our inheritance and be just rulers and capable teachers of Kingdom principles. We will even judge both men and angels, as Christ Himself does. We will be kings and priests of our God, and serve as mediators between the Lord and His people. We will enforce godly principles, so that there is fairness and equality for all men in the Kingdom of God.

Psalm 9:3-4 “When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence. For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in thy throne judging right.”

Jesus Christ will take vengeance on all our enemies and vindicate our honor before both men and angels. He will bind Satan in the bottomless pit, so that he can never accuse, torment or oppress God’s people ever again. Everyone who has committed evil against us or interfered with our service to the Lord will be judged and sentenced to eternal punishment in the lake of fire.

The Lord will restore what has been taken from each of us, and we will no longer be oppressed or exploited in any way. All evil will be far removed from us, and no one will take our possessions ever again. No longer robbed and spoiled in any way, we will be protected by the Lord Himself. He will make certain that we have all that we need to lead healthy and happy lives.

We will build homes to house our large families, and never deal with the threat of losing them to anyone. We will long enjoy the work of our hands and see the fruits of all our labor. The earth will be a veritable paradise once again and we will have dominion over all of nature and the plant and animal kingdoms. All men will walk as brothers – in love, peace and unity for all time.

The people of God will no longer be afflicted for their faith. We will worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, as He so rightly deserves. No man or angel will ever separate us from the love of God. He will be the center of our attention and fellowship intimately with us for all eternity. We will celebrate all of His sabbaths and feast days in the new Jerusalem as He desires.

Revelation 21:4 “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

We will no longer remember our former suffering, pain and sorrow; the Lord will blot it from our memories and give us joy and gladness for all time. All of creation will be restored and re-created to be beautiful and bountiful once again. We will live forever in a virtual paradise on the earth, in harmony with all of nature. There will be nothing defiling that ever causes us harm.

There will be peace and prosperity, righteousness and justice, safety and security, health and longevity in the Kingdom of God forever. We will have only blessings, with no downside. There will be no evil that disturbs the order and stability of our lives. We will finally be reunited with our loved ones. We will build homes and dwell with our friends and families for generation after generation.

The Lord Himself will take up residence with us in the Kingdom of God. He will be our God for all time and fellowship intimately with us. He wants to take an active part in our lives and commune with us on a regular basis. We will all rejoice in His presence and give Him honor and praise for all that He has done for us. All men will worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, as He desires.

Jeremiah 30:17 “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, [saying], This [is] Zion, whom no man seeketh after.”

Zion is a type and shadow of the Church of Christ. He will heal us of all our wounds and give us just recompense for all that we have suffered and lost over the years. We will no longer be outcasts and stigmatized for following our God. He will rise up on behalf of His people and defend our cause for all of eternity; He will take vengeance on all our enemies and deliver us from all forms of evil.

The Lord will fully vindicate His people for their faithfulness and devotion to Him. We will have our dignity, reputations and relationships restored to us for all time. Anything that we have lost or had stolen from us will be multiplied and returned to us in abundance. The Lord will meet all of our needs even before we ask Him. We will lack for no good thing when we enter into the Kingdom of God.

Instead of our former shame and scorn as followers of the one true faith, we will be honored and glorified with Jesus Christ Himself. He will generously reward us for our faithful service to Him in ushering in His Kingdom. We will be given the heathen for our inheritance in the uttermost parts of the earth. We will rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world and even judge both men and angels.

Heaven On The Earth

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

The Lord knows the end from the beginning and He has a wonderful plan in place for our total redemption. We will not be evacuated from the earth to heaven as some may think. On the contrary, heaven will be ushered into the earth realm in the Kingdom of God, as it was promised.

The earth will not be totally destroyed as rumor has it, but it will be changed for the better through the efforts of the sons and daughters of God. Very soon now, we will see new heavens and a new earth merged into one everlasting Kingdom. They will abide forever with Jesus Christ ruling and reigning over them, to ensure that nothing evil ever defiles their beauty and peace.

God’s people will be spared physical and spiritual death. We will not all die, as we have come to believe, but we will all be changed in the twinkling of an eye. The dead in Christ will be raised and we will all put on glorious, resurrection bodies that are impervious to disease and death.

We will live forever in a veritable paradise on the earth. The Lord will provide all of our needs in abundance and share all the vast resources of the universe with His children. We will have limitless blessings and enjoy all the days of our lives in His very presence. All men will dwell in love, peace and unity and give God all the praise, thanks and glory He deserves.

Isaiah 60:15 “Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through [thee], I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.”

The Lord knows how we have suffered for our faith and He will turn our captivity, as He has promised. We will share in His very own honor and glory for all eternity. Christ will boast of us to all creation. He will give us His people for our inheritance, so that we can rule and reign with Him in fairness and justice for all. We will be kings and priests, and teach all men Kingdom principles of righteousness. We will help to enforce safety and security for those in our care.

Very soon now, God’s people will be a praise on the earth, an eternal excellency of the Lord Himself. No man will dare to criticize or condemn us for our faith any longer. We will be heroes for our role in ushering in the Kingdom of God. All men will know the truth and worship the Lord, from the very least to the greatest. We will all dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers. The Lord will generously supply all our needs, as we bask in the glory of His presence.

We will be the joy of many generations for our faithful service to the Lord and to our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are a chosen people that have been the Lord’s hands, feet and voice on the earth. He will not forget our unselfish contribution to Him and His people. We will have an eternal legacy of honor and be highly regarded by both men and angels. Men will look up to us with joy and gratitude in their hearts for all that we have done for them and their families.

Ruth 2:12 “The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.”

We will be ushered into the Kingdom of God for all of eternity and enjoy total restoration in every area of our lives. The Lord will make certain that His people are generously rewarded for their faithfulness and devotion to Him. Our lives will be far better than they ever were before. We will receive an eternal legacy in the Kingdom of God that no one can ever take from us.

Everything that we have experienced in our walk with God will be well worth the trouble and pain that we incurred. There is never a permanent loss in the lives of God’s people. He will make certain that we are generously compensated for all that we suffered and had stolen over the years. We will have not only our reputations and property restored, but relationships also.

We are promised a household salvation for our faithfulness. Many of our loved ones who formerly scorned us will ultimately be converted and join us in the Kingdom of God. All our deceased loved ones will be raised back to life, so that we can enjoy their presence again for all time. We will dwell together as God’s family and give Him all the praise and thanks He deserves.

Isaiah 66:22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.”

Life in the Kingdom will be idyllic; it will be paradise on the earth with no end. All of nature will be subject to man and be in harmony once again. We are going back to our beginning in the Garden of Eden, but there will be no evil that disrupts our lives and leads us into destruction. Everything will be beautiful and serene, as God intended it from the creation.

There will be peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will dwell with us and meet all of our needs in abundance from the vast resources that the universe has to offer us. He will make certain that we have everything we need and desire. We will live long and strong and give Him all the praise, honor, and glory.

There will be no contention, strife and division in the Kingdom of God. There will be no more war, violence, greed or exploitation of any kind. All men will know the Lord and be righteous. His laws will be written on our minds and in our hearts. We will dwell in love, peace and unity with both men and angels and enjoy our families for all generations to come.

Those of us who have fought the good fight of faith will be kings and priests of God, just rulers and capable teachers of His people. We will assist Christ in judging all of creation. We will rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world to make certain that godly principles of fairness, justice and equality are enforced in every part of His everlasting Kingdom.

The people of God will soon be restored to positions of prominence and praise on the earth. We will no longer be shamed and ridiculed for our faith. All men will realize that we are the people after the Lord’s own heart. We will share in Christ’s honor and glory and be totally vindicated. Those who once scorned and reviled us will regard us as heroes for all eternity!
