Come Up Higher
A Special Invitation To The Kingdom Of God

by Diane Jurino



Chapter 1

A Special Invitation

God So Loved The World
To Believe Or Not Believe
The New Birth
No More Excuse For Sin
Covered By The Blood
Growing In The Things Of God
We Are His Witnesses


God So Loved The World

John 3:16-18 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

The Lord created man for ongoing, intimate fellowship with Him for all of eternity. We were formed in His very own image and likeness, so that we could be with Him for all time. However, Adam’s sin interrupted that relationship and brought evil and death into the equation. The penalty for sin is death – physical and spiritual destruction. Through Adam’s sin, all of mankind was relegated to sin and death, and forced into a temporary separation from God.

Faced with losing His relationship with us altogether, the Lord was compelled to develop an alternate plan for our redemption. He loved us so much that He sent His very own Son to the earth, so that all men might be saved and restored to right standing with Him again. Jesus Christ did not come to condemn mankind, but rather, to save us from our sins. His Blood was the only perfect sacrifice that could be made in full atonement for the transgression of all mankind.

If we believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and His redemption on our behalf, we will be saved to eternal life. However, if we do not believe in Him, we are already condemned to punishment. The Word of God says that we must believe in Christ with all our hearts and confess Him with our mouths. If we do this, then we should also be baptized in our faith with water and with the Holy Spirit. This will consummate our salvation and prepare us for a new life in Christ.

We have the opportunity of a lifetime. We can embrace the truth and become actual sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. We have a chance to make a significant difference in this world. We can partner with the Lord and save many from total destruction. If we accept our divine destinies, He will empower us to share our faith with others and usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God to the earth realm, so that all things can be united under the lordship of His Son.

1John 5:11 “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.”

We have been given a special invitation to believe the truth and enter in to the Kingdom of God for all of eternity. It is not the Lord’s will that any man perishes; He wants a personal relationship with each of us. We should embrace the Gospel message and always walk in love and righteousness. We must love the Lord with our whole strength, and regard others as we do ourselves. We should acknowledge Him in all that we do and fulfill His perfect will for our lives.

If we believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and His atonement on our behalf, we ought to confess Him as our Savior before God and man. Those of us who do believe will be born again; have our minds renewed; be transformed; and receive the gift of eternal life. However, those who reject Him and refuse to comply with His moral absolutes are already condemned. They will be excluded from entering in to the Kingdom of God and will be eternally punished in the lake of fire

The Lord will purge all evil out of His people and remove it far from His Kingdom. There will be no one and nothing that defiles us that ever enters in to the Kingdom of God. All who dwell there will be totally sanctified and purified for eternal life and all of its blessings. We will live with the Lord Himself and no evil can abide with Him. We will enjoy peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity for all eternity, as long as we have prepared ourselves.


To Believe Or Not Believe

1Corinthians 1:18 “For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”

Even though the doctrine of salvation is simple, yet powerful, and made available for all men to believe, some will still choose to reject it. Without faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement on our behalf, we are doomed to physical and spiritual destruction forever. We are without hope and we will spend all of eternity separated from our God and punished in the lake of fire.

However, when we come up higher and believe in Jesus Christ and all that He did for us, we receive the gift of eternal life. If we follow all the commandments, walk in love for God and for others and are obedient to do His will, we will be determined totally righteous. The choice is ours alone. The Lord will never override our free will and force us to believe the truth.

We must purposely choose to be saved and baptized in water and the Holy Spirit in order to enter in to the Kingdom of God. This decision is not arbitrary or at our discretion. We can approach the Father only through the cross of Jesus Christ. Through our faith in Him, we are redeemed and have a special invitation to enter in to God’s Kingdom with all its many blessings.

1John 4:9 “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.”

If we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and believe that He died to save us from our sins and rose again from the dead, we are born again in our spirit man and restored to right standing with God. We are saved only through our faith in Him, and we must confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of our lives. The Lord then imputes righteousness to us. So too, we should be baptized with water and the Holy Spirit of God, so our salvation is complete. We must obey all His commandments; walk in love; and fulfill the Lord’s perfect will for our lives, as He desires.

All those who embrace the truth of the Gospel message will be deemed righteous in the Lord’s eyes. We will live by the very resurrection power of Christ Himself that is at work in us to make us new creatures in Him. Our spiritual regeneration is an ongoing process in which our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is transformed, so that we eventually become holy and perfect – just as the Lord is holy and perfect. We will ultimately be purged of everything that displeases the Lord and be found worthy to enter in to the Kingdom of God with all of its blessings.

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.”

Spiritual regeneration is not automatic, however. We have to fully cooperate with our redemptive process if we are sincere about wanting a closer relationship with our God. We cannot be deliberately rebellious and purposely sin. We must make a concerted effort to change our lives in accordance with the Lord’s absolute standards. We must forego all worldliness and renounce all sin in our lives, and the Lord will facilitate the necessary transformation in us Himself. He will give us His very own Spirit to dwell in us, convict us of sin and lead us into all righteousness.

It is possible for us to know all deep spiritual truths and walk in the light of them, so that we overcome the world, our flesh and the devil. We are the actual sons and daughters of almighty God and we can reign victorious in life through Christ Jesus. If we ask the Lord for wisdom, knowledge and understanding, He will gladly grant them to us by the power of the Holy Spirit that works in us and through us. We will receive spiritual gifts and callings that permit us to serve mankind in power and authority, as we were intended to do from the very foundation of the world.

The Gospel will be preached throughout the earth, so that all men, women and children have an opportunity to receive eternal life and enter in to the Kingdom of God. We will overcome all evil with good and deliver all of mankind from their bondage to sin. We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders that attest to our faith. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead, just as Christ Himself did. Nothing will be impossible to us as we serve our God and His people in the critical days that lie ahead. Everything that we do will bring honor and glory to Him as it should.


An Equal Opportunity Gospel

1Peter 4:18 “And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?”

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, not only came to the earth to be a sacrifice for our sins, but He also came to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to all men. He wants us set free from our bondage to sin and corruption to enjoy life abundantly. He taught us His law of love, so we would become righteous and godly and enter in to His everlasting Kingdom one day.

We all have an equal opportunity to embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ and believe what it tells us. It contains no deep mystery or hidden agenda that should confuse us. The Lord desires that all men seek Him and know the truth, so that they will be saved and enjoy the blessings of eternal life. He encourages us to walk in love and follow all of His commandments to us.

The Gospel has the power to save us, if we will only believe what it tells us. Christ died so that we don’t have to endure the pain and suffering for our sins that we deserve. His death was the ultimate sacrifice that was required to pay our total sin debt. With His victory over sin, death and the grave, He restored us to right standing with God and gave us hope for the future.

If we do not believe in the doctrines of salvation and the resurrection, we are doomed to eternal punishment. We have no excuse for rebelliousness; the truth is readily made available to all men. The Lord desires that no man perish for lack of knowledge. The Gospel is being preached all over the world, so men can choose to believe the truth and be set free in it.

Galatians 3:10-14 “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, [it is] evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

Sin is transgression of the law and requires payback. If we refuse to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are under the curse of the law and bound to adhere to all of its precepts. That means that we have to make atonement for our own sins and suffer death as a penalty for them. There is nothing that we can do to pay for our sin debt; we are condemned to death by the law.

Through our faith in Jesus Christ, we are redeemed from the curse of the law and made righteous in God’s eyes. We are actually seated with Jesus Christ in heavenly places, at the right hand of God Himself. We are treated as His very own sons and daughters and inherit the blessings of faithful Abraham. The Lord will prosper us in all our ways and multiply our offspring on the earth.

Our prayers are always heard and the Lord delights in our total dependence on Him. He supplies all that we require to lead healthy, happy and successful lives. He will never leave us or forsake us, and has promised to be with us always in everything that we do. If we are continually righteous and walk in love for Him and others, we will join Him in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

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:”

The Lord has called us from the beginning of time to be His sons and daughters on the earth. We were created in the very image and likeness of God and a spark of the divine dwells in each of us. We are in the world, but should not be contaminated by it. We have been set apart and we must be sanctified for the Lord’s purpose. He has a special plan in place for our future.

We should praise God for all that He has done for us. Our lives have meaning and purpose now. We have eternal callings and divine destinies that will play out in the days ahead. No longer estranged from God, we will actually partner with Him in saving others and in bringing heaven itself into the earth realm. We need not have any special talents; the Lord will fully equip us to do His will and bring peace and order back to the entire world, as He has planned.

Believers will walk in faith as Christ walked on the earth, and appropriate divine power and authority to do good to others. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again, as Christ did during His earthly ministry. We will take authority over all evil and tear down demonic strongholds that have kept God’s people in perpetual bondage to corruption.

Mark 8:35 “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.”

The Gospel of the Kingdom of God will be preached all over the earth, so that men, women and children from all tongues, races and nations have an equal opportunity to be saved unto eternal life. It is the Lord’s greatest desire that all mankind be reconciled to Him and enter in to His Kingdom. He will make the invitation through us, and we will see many converted, saved and baptized. We will lay down our lives for the sake of God’s people and overcome evil with good.

All world governments will be reorganized and restructured to adhere to godly principles of righteousness, fairness and justice for all men. We will restore peace and unity on the earth, as the Lord desires. All of creation will be changed back to its original beauty and balance and subject to our authority once again. All forms of pollution and catastrophic climatic conditions will be reversed. We will usher in the Kingdom of God and literally bring heaven to the earth.

We cannot shirk our divine destinies or refuse the Lord’s call on our lives. If we do, we will lose the very lives we seek to preserve. The only way up in the Kingdom of God is through humble service to others. If we are faithful to fulfill the Lord’s eternal redemption plan and purpose, we will receive countless blessings and tangible rewards for our efforts. The Lord will boast of us to all creation and gather us into His everlasting Kingdom, so we are never separated from Him.


Lies That Creep In

2Thessalonians 2:10-12 “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

Satan, the very enemy of our souls, would love for us to doubt the truth and believe his lies instead. He whispers that there is no God. He wants us to think that we are all alone in this world, and that this life is all that exists. He encourages us to do whatever we like, regardless of the long-term consequences to our lives. He tempts us to be selfish and immoral, and he rejoices when we fall into sin. He is a liar and a thief and his main goal is to totally destroy us.

He wants us to believe that we are so evil that the Lord could never forgive us of our sins. He uses shame, guilt and condemnation to attack our minds and blind us to the truth. The Lord desires to be reconciled with all mankind, regardless of their past sinfulness. No one is too incorrigible that the Blood of Jesus Christ cannot redeem him for all time.

The devil wants us confused and beguiled by his lies, so that we are separated from God for all of eternity. He does not want us to fulfill our divine destinies and take dominion over him, as Christ intended we do. He oppresses us, so we are tempted to doubt God and forsake His commandments to us. He will stop at nothing until he robs us of our blessings and causes us to renounce our faith altogether. He wants to cause a permanent breach between God and man

However, he will not be successful in all his diabolical efforts to turn us away from our God. We inherently know the truth. Our Creator Father loves us and has a perfect plan in place for our total redemption. The Lord will not be satisfied until all men have heard the truth of the Gospel message and have an equal opportunity to accept it.

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.”

Satan delights in putting strife and division among us, and zeroes in for the kill when he is successful in isolating us from others of like precious faith. We must remember that the devil is a real enemy that is out to steal, kill and destroy all of humanity because God loves us. He tries his best to get us off track and cause us to deny our God. He wants us to follow him into perdition, so that we are eternally damned. His major contention is with the Lord, but he attacks men, as well. He tries to play us out of position, so that we are tempted to sin and violate the commandments.

We cannot succumb to his temptations and renounce our faith, as he desires. We should take authority over all his efforts to deceive us and cast him out of all our affairs by the Blood and the name of Jesus Christ. If we submit ourselves to God and resist the devil, he will flee from us. If we are truly righteous, there is no legitimate reason why we should be tormented by him and doubt our relationship with God. We should ask the Lord and He will protect us from every attack of the enemy. If we seek the Lord’s presence above everything else, He will keep us keep us far from all forms of evil

Christ came to this earth to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom; to save us from our sins; give us life in abundance; and to defeat the devil and all his minions. He made an open show of them on Calvary and utterly destroyed Satan’s power on the earth. He restored dominion back to men with His victory over sin, death and the grave. We should never permit the enemy to attack us and disturb our peace. We have the Blood bought power and authority to defeat him at all times. Through Jesus Christ, we can reign in this life and totally overcome the world, our flesh and the devil.

Romans 3:3 “For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?”

There are many who will doubt the Lord and reject the Gospel of the Kingdom of God in the days to come. That does not mean that our faith is without power to save men from their sins. It is effectual for changing our lives for all of eternity if we accept the truth. If we believe that Christ died to bring us salvation, we will be deemed righteous and have eternal life in the Kingdom of God. However, if we do not believe, we are already condemned to punishment in the lake of fire.

Even if we hold fast to the profession of our faith, Satan tells us that we are not worthy of God’s love and that we will never have His blessings. He wants us to doubt the Lord and drive a wedge in our relationship with Him. He focuses on our sinfulness and reminds us of our shortcomings. We should resist him in all his ways, and he will cease and desist in his efforts to mislead us. The devil has no authority to torment us unless we permit him legal entry to our lives by sinning.

We have no excuse for unbelief; we now know the truth that has set us free for all time. Through our faith in Jesus Christ, we were made righteous once and for all. He paid the sin debt for all of mankind in its entirety. Our sinfulness and carnality are no longer an issue with God. We have been washed clean in the Blood of His very own Son, and our right standing with Him is restored. We need only affirm our faith on a daily basis to have eternal life and all its many benefits.

Righteousness should be our constant goal; we must keep all of the Lord’s commandments to us. It is critical that we walk in love for the Lord and others and strive for peace with God and with all men. If we sin and miss the mark, we should be quick to repent and be restored to right standing. It is possible for us to become spiritually mature to the point that we become holy and perfect, just as the Lord is holy and perfect. That should be our long-term goal and aspiration.


A Special Invitation

Isaiah 41:4 “Who hath wrought and done [it], calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I [am] He.”

We have been called and chosen from the very foundation of the world to be with the Lord for all time. While sin temporarily interrupted our fellowship with Him, the Blood of Christ rectified that situation. We are now deemed righteous if we have received Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

Our relationship with God has been restored and He is able to bless us as He always intended. We can go boldly to the throne of grace and be assured that our prayers will always be heard. We are sons and daughters of the living God and He will supply all our needs in abundance.

We have a special invitation to enter God’s Kingdom if we are righteous. We cannot purposely sin or violate any of the Lord’s commandments to us. So too, we must never compromise our love walk. We should love the Lord above all things and love others as we love ourselves.

It goes without saying that we must strive for holiness and perfection if we wish to dwell with the Lord in His Kingdom as He has promised. We cannot be worldly in any way; we must put our spirit man in ascendancy to our flesh and soul and always walk in the Holy Spirit of God.

Our God is holy and perfect and He cannot abide with evil of any kind. If we wish to spend all of eternity in His presence, we will have to take our sanctification to an entirely new level. We need to come up higher in our walk with the Lord and imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ.

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.”

It is not the Lord’s will that any man should perish in his sin. He desires that we all come to know Him and the power of the Gospel to set us free. He wants to fellowship with us for all eternity in His Kingdom, and He has chosen and called us from all over the face of the earth. Men, women and children from every tongue, race and nation are welcome to enter the Kingdom of God.

There is a special invitation open for one and all to join the Lord. He wants nothing more than to dwell with His people and provide all their needs in abundance from the vast resources that the universe has to offer. He will be a Father to us, and we will give Him all the love, praise and honor that He deserves. All men will know the truth; God’s laws will be written in our minds and hearts.

No one is too incorrigible to repent, be saved and baptized in our faith. All of us have fallen short of the glory of God, yet redemption is available to each of us through the atoning Blood of Christ. We should share our faith with all men, so they have the opportunity to receive eternal life and dwell in the Kingdom of God. Many will be converted and baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

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:”

It’s all about timing and opportunity. Soon even the nation of Israel will be converted and baptized into our faith. We will attract them with miracles, signs and wonders and win many of them by our personal testimony to Jesus Christ. When they hear our words, they will be eager to greet their Messiah, and anxious to restore their right relationship with God. The Lord will rejoice over all of His people and be a Father and provider to everyone in the Kingdom of God.

We will have His laws written in our minds and hearts. All of us will be loving and righteous. There will be no conflict and war, no poverty and lack, no fear and oppression. Men will learn to dwell together as brothers – in love, peace and unity. Jesus Christ will make certain that Kingdom integrity is maintained at all times. He will expel all evil from His presence and rule and reign with a rod of iron. There will be nothing that defiles or harms God’s people that will ever be permitted to enter the Kingdom.

The Kingdom of God will be populated with the righteous from both heaven and earth. It will include angels and believers who are both dead and alive. The dead in Christ will rise from the dead to be with us, and we will all receive new, glorious, resurrection bodies. We will all share in blessings and dwell in the very presence of our God for all of eternity. The Lord will be overjoyed if His Kingdom is loaded to capacity and He will generously provide for all of our needs.

Zephaniah 3:20 “At that time will I bring you [again], even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.”

Even now, the Lord is gathering us in to His everlasting Kingdom. He is turning the captivity of His people forever. The Body of Christ is actively engaged in preaching the Gospel message all over the world. Many will have an opportunity to hear the powerful truth that sets them free to enjoy the blessings of eternal life and enter into the Kingdom of God. We will soon be a praise on the earth for all time.

It is the Lord’s deepest desire that all mankind come to a full knowledge of the Gospel and believe in Jesus Christ and all that He did for us. He does not want a single soul to perish. He wants to fellowship with all of us, as He originally intended from the foundation of the world. However, nothing evil can dwell in His presence, and He will be compelled to exclude all the unrighteous from His everlasting Kingdom.

The Lord will not force us to accept His offer of eternal life or manipulate us in any way. He will never override our free will or coerce us into believing in Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. He will patiently wait for us to come to the truth ourselves. However, if we deliberately reject Him and are stubborn and rebellious, He will sadly permit us to be excluded from His Kingdom and punished for all of eternity.


The Choice Is Ours

Deuteronomy 30:19 “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:”

The Lord wants nothing more from us than that we would turn to Him and seek the truth. He loves us with a deep, abiding love and it is not His will that any man perishes. He wants to dwell with us as our Creator Father in the Kingdom of God, but the choice is ours to make, and ours alone. We must earnestly repent of all our sins and sanctify ourselves to enter into His Kingdom.

We must believe that Christ is the Son of God and that He died to save us from our sins and rose again from the dead. If we believe in our hearts and confess that with our mouths, we will be saved unto eternal life. We are encouraged to be baptized in water and ask for the Holy Spirit to come to us, so that He can lead and guide us into all truth and teach us to walk in love for God and others.

Our righteousness will then no longer be an issue and we can fellowship with the Lord intimately, as He desires that we do. We are sons and daughters of the living God. We can approach Him in prayer at any time, and be assured that all our needs will be met. He wants us totally dependent on Him for every good thing in our lives, and He will never ever leave us or forsake us.

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.”

We should reverence the Lord above all things and show Him the deference and respect that He deserves. He is a mighty God and capable of both creation and destruction. We must have a wholesome fear of Him and respect all His commandments to us, as we have been taught. It is a fearful thing to fall under the mighty hand of God.

We must sanctify ourselves of all that defiles us and strive for holiness and perfection. None of that is possible without the direct intervention of the Holy Spirit in our lives. He will lead and guide us, so that we are continually righteous in God’s eyes and walking in love, as we should.

We inherit great and wonderful promises when we decide to live for God through the power of His Son, Jesus Christ. We actually become joint-heirs with Jesus and are seated with Him in heavenly places. We have rights and privileges that only those who are saved can enjoy. Our right standing with the Lord is secure for all time.

We can approach our God with every need, in full confidence that He will supply all that we require to lead happy, healthy and prosperous lives. He will protect us from all evil and take vengeance on all our enemies. We will eventually overcome the world, our flesh and the devil.


The New Birth

1Thessalonians 5:9-10 “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.”

All of heaven rejoices when we are born again! We are destined to have a close, intimate relationship with our God for all of eternity. We were created in His very image and likeness and He desires to be a Father to us. He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth to save us from our sins and to reconcile us to Himself for all time. There should never be a separation between God and man ever again. The Lord has a perfect plan in place that will benefit us in every area of our lives.

The decision to embrace the truth is the single most important factor to our salvation. We must repent of all known sin and appropriate the redemption that is provided to us through our faith in Christ and His death and resurrection. It is possible for every man, woman and child to know the truth and be saved to eternal life. The Lord will lead and guide us every step of the way. We will be changed and transformed into new creatures in Christ and inherit all of His promised blessings.

How To Receive Eternal Life And Enter Into The Kingdom Of God

1. Repent from our sins
2. Believe that Jesus Christ died for us
3. Confess Him as Lord and Savior
4. Be baptized with water
5. Ask God for the baptism in the Holy Spirit
6. Obey the Commandments
7. Walk in love
8. Fulfill the will of God for our lives

If we are diligent to do all of these things, we will indeed inherit eternal life and all the blessings of the Kingdom of God. However, if we reject the Lord and His way of doing things, we will be on the outside looking in for all of eternity. No evil can dwell in His presence, and although it will grieve Him, He will exclude us from His Kingdom if we are sinful and unrepentant. The choice is ours and ours alone. We must embrace the truth or be condemned to everlasting punishment.


No More Excuse For Sin

Romans 6:11-12 “Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.”

It is really simple to have faith in God and be saved to eternal life. We need to be humble, child-like and sincere in our love for Him and for others. We cannot be hypocritical, pretentious or religious in any way. We must have contrite hearts and teachable spirits to walk with the Lord. He wants a people that are totally sold out to Him and righteous in all they do.

It’s not about religion; that will never impress God or improve our right standing with Him. He is not into pompous ceremonies or rituals of any kind. The Lord wants us to have a personal relationship with Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. He wants us to willingly lay down all of our sinfulness and appropriate the holiness and perfection of His very own Son.

We have no excuse for sin; we are now dead to it. If we have confessed Christ as Lord and Savior, then He has taken on all our sin debt, as if it were His own. We have no business sinning ever again; we should strive to always remain sin free, so that our right standing is never in question. Through the power of Jesus Christ, we can become and remain righteous.

Our minds will be renewed in the truth and our behavior will be transformed until it is godly. We will grow in spiritual maturity and imitate the laid-down life of Christ Himself. We will walk in love and fulfill our divine destinies as the sons of God. Miraculous signs and wonders will accompany us everywhere we go if we are consecrated and dedicated to God.

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

Christ actually dwells in us now and we can do all things in His strength. If we are disciplined and walk in righteousness and love, we will remain sin free and acceptable to the Lord. If we lay down our lives in humble obedience to the Lord’s will, we will be astonished at the changes in us. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can become more spiritually mature.

Spiritual fruit will begin to manifest in our lives once we are born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit. These are attributes like those of God Himself. Faith, peace, love, and joy will all appear and help us to grow and develop in the deep things of God. Goodness, gentleness, meekness, temperance and longsuffering will evolve to enable us to relate better to others.

We will serve the Lord and others with joy and gladness, instead of out of fear and obligation. We will present our bodies as living sacrifices, and relinquish all our worldly lusts and selfish soul ambitions. We will imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ Himself and walk just as He walked. We will continue His ministry on the earth and fulfill our divine destinies.

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.”

If we are born again, then we have been set free from the law of sin and death. We can deliberately pursue righteousness, as we have been taught. We will eventually overcome the world, our flesh and the devil and prevail in all things. We are more than conquerors through our faith in Christ Jesus and we will become more like Him as we imitate His laid down life.

The process of regeneration takes time, however. We are not instantly holy and pure, despite our best efforts. We have to lay down all worldliness and discipline ourselves, so that we can become godly. Our minds are renewed and our behavior is transformed, until we eventually evolve into mature Christians. The key to positive growth is full surrender to God.

We have to relinquish all our carnality and selfishness of the soul, and strive for holiness and perfection. We should present our bodies as living sacrifices in humble service to God and to others. We will preach the Gospel all over the earth, so that many men can be set free, as we have been. Our very thoughts, words and actions must be above and beyond reproach.

Believers are ambassadors for the Lord and His Kingdom way of life. We should be fitting examples to others at all times. All men will look to us in the days to come, to see if we are living up to our faith. We will be carefully scrutinized to see if we are sincere. Our righteousness and our love walk will have to be unquestionable if we will lead others to the Lord.

Romans 6:22-23 “But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Jesus Christ came to this earth to save us from all our sins and to be our role model for righteousness. He laid down His deity while He was here with us and operated as a mere man. He was subjected to all the tests, trials and temptations that we have ourselves, yet He was totally sinless and perfectly obedient. Christ taught us that we can be victorious in this life.

Now that we are free of our bondage to sin, we can work at our sanctification. If we walk in love and righteousness at all times, we will mature spiritually to the point that sin no longer reigns over us in any way. We will lay down all our carnality and selfish soul ambitions; become like Christ Himself; and walk in holiness and perfection, as we are destined to do.

We should present our bodies as living sacrifices in humble service to the Lord. He will then be able to use us to lead others to Him and usher in His everlasting Kingdom. Nothing will be impossible for us. He will endue us with His very own divine power and authority. We will operate as Jesus Christ did on the earth and perform miracles, signs and wonders in His name.

The Gospel of the Kingdom of God will be preached with power and conviction, so that all of mankind has the opportunity to receive eternal life and all its many benefits. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead in the days to come. All men, women and children that wish to be converted, saved and baptized will repent of their sins and come to the Lord.

John 8:36 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

Christ died to save us from our sins and to set us free from the bondage that we experienced. He brought us life in abundance to the overflow. We now have peace with God and enjoy true Christian liberty. None of us ever have to sin and experience separation from God ever again. We can do all things through Christ, to include remaining sin free and in right standing with God.

We have divine callings and eternal destinies to fulfill. We cannot be selfish and doing our own thing. If we are totally cleansed of all our sin and worldly defilement, the Lord can use us to bring in the Kingdom of God on the earth. We have inherited eternal life through our faith in Christ, and we must share the Gospel message with others, so that they can also be saved.

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

If we are fully sanctified of all known sin, the Lord will imbue us with divine power and authority to function as Jesus Christ did on the earth. We will overcome all evil with good. We will preach the good news of the Kingdom of God and baptize many souls in the end-time harvest. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life in His name.

We will tear down all demonic strongholds and bring peace, order and stability back to the earth, as we are supposed to do. We will set others free from their bondage to sin and prepare their hearts to meet their King. There will be equality and justice, safety and security in the Kingdom of God. Christ will rule with a rod of iron to make certain that nothing evil ever harms us.

The people of God will experience peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and gladness for all eternity. The Lord will actually dwell with us and meet our needs in abundance, even before we ask Him. We will interact with men and angels and the Lord will turn our language back to a pure one that all may understand. Every tongue will confess that “Jesus is Lord.”


Covered By The Blood

Ephesians 2:13 “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.”

Our redemption is finally secure. If we are sincere believers, we are covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ. If we do sin after having received our salvation, we now have grace with God and can always repent and be restored to right standing again. If we do so, He will reinstate all of our blessings and even blot our sin from His memory, as He promised us.

Christ’s sacrifice paid our sin debt in its entirety. He shed His Blood once and for all, so that the sins of all mankind – past, present and future – would be forgiven. Our righteousness is no longer an issue with God. When He sees us, He sees the shed Blood of His very own Son, Jesus Christ, and deems us truly acceptable now as His beloved sons and daughters.

However, we must never take advantage of the Lord’s love, mercy and compassion to us. We should purposely control our fleshly desires and lay down our selfish, worldly ambitions. We have the personal responsibility to remain sin free and sanctify ourselves of all carnality. Deliberate sin is always forbidden and will subject us to eternal punishment.

Although we may have tests, trials and temptations to endure, we will be victorious if we appropriate the strength and wisdom of Christ Himself. He will empower us to walk like He walked and do the works that He did on the earth. All that we must do is be fully surrendered to Him and we will be astounded at the positive changes that will take place in us.

Revelation 12:11 “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.”

It is possible to be sin free and totally righteous at all times. We should walk in the Holy Spirit instead of our flesh, and strive for holiness and perfection, even as our God is holy and perfect. We must have a reverential fear of the Lord and follow all of His commandments to us. We can also perfect our love walk and treat others, as we hope to be treated.

We must present our bodies as living sacrifices, so that we can serve the Lord and His people in the critical days to come. We cannot be focused on this world; we have divine destinies that will impact all of eternity. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with power and conviction, heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead back to life again.

All world governments will be challenged to make certain that they line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for all mankind. We will establish peace and order on the earth and eliminate all violence and destruction. We will speak to all of creation and it will be in harmony and subject to our dominion. Nothing will be impossible to us.

We are the Body of Christ on the earth – His hands, feet and voice. We will appropriate His divine power to reign victorious in life. We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil by the Blood of the Lamb and the words of our testimony. We are more than conquerors in life through our faith in Christ; He will strengthen us so that we prevail in all matters.

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.”

Jesus Christ died for the remission of our sins and to bring us life in abundance to the overflow. We have received the divine exchange of sin for pardon, guilt for righteousness, sorrow for joy and contention for peace. However, we are responsible to walk in the light we have and share our saving faith with others, so that they can also be set free. We must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God, so that men, women and children in every nation of the world can be saved unto eternal life.

It is not the Lord’s desire that anyone perishes for lack of knowledge. He wants us all to turn from our sins and believe in His Son, Jesus Christ. If we do, we will receive many blessings for our faith and enjoy fellowship with God and with one another. The Blood of Christ is powerful to cleanse all of us from our sins; restore us to right standing; and protect us from all evil. If we walk in love and total righteousness, the enemy will not be able to disturb our lives or interfere with our well-being.

We must pursue peace with all men, believers and unbelievers. We cannot be in strife and division and hope to please God. He wants all men to dwell in love, peace and unity, wherever possible. We need one another and we should be diligent to find the ties that bind us together, rather than focus on our differences. All of us have suffered from oppression and battled with the forces of darkness. If we join together as one, we will overcome all evil with good and take total dominion over the enemy.

There is strength in numbers and we will come to depend on the gifts and callings of one another in the critical days that lie ahead. The Body of Christ will move as one entity in total strength and integrity of purpose, under the leadership and guidance of Christ Himself. We will tear down all demonic strongholds and restore peace, order and stability to the world, so that the Kingdom of God can be introduced without delay. Nothing will be impossible to us; we will bring heaven itself to the earth.

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.”

We are covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ for all sin – past, present and future. We have true Christian liberty. We are no longer subject to death as a penalty for our sins. We are justified by our faith in Jesus Christ, and through that alone.

Our right standing with God has been restored for all time. We are the very sons and daughters of God Himself. We can approach the throne of grace with every need, and rest assured that the Lord will hear our prayers and supply all our needs.

We have become joint-heirs with Christ to better promises than our forefathers had. The Lord has a wonderful redemption plan in place for His people. We will inherit the Kingdom of God and all of its many blessings one day very soon.

But first, we must rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing and take back the earth for Jesus Christ. There will eventually be peace, order and stability in this world as a result of our efforts. All men will have an opportunity to hear the Gospel.

Heaven itself will be ushered into the earth realm as the Lord has promised us. We will not have to die and go to heaven to receive our eternal rewards. They will be here and waiting for us when Christ returns to set up His everlasting rule and reign.

The Kingdom of God will be a perfect abode for both God and man. We will experience perpetual peace and prosperity, safety and security, health and longevity, joy and freedom. The Lord will provide all our needs and protect us from all evil.

Our bodies will be changed into glorious, resurrection forms that never age, grow sick and die. The dead in Christ will be raised to be with us. We will all dwell in the very presence of almighty God Himself and worship Him in Spirit and in truth.


Growing In The Things Of God

Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”

Sin is sin and it requires payback. The penalty for sin is death and separation from God. The decision to renounce all our sins and follow Christ is of utmost importance to us. We cannot be in right standing with our God any other way. We must repent of all our wrongdoing once and for all. We cannot be saved by our own merits, even if we are good people in the eyes of the world.

We must sincerely believe in Jesus Christ and His atonement on our behalf, and confess Him as our Lord and Savior. We should then be baptized with water as an outward sign of the inward change that took place in us when we were born again. We should also ask the Lord for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, so that we can have real power available to us to change our lives for the better.

If we pray and ask the Lord to help us, He will purge us of all carnality and our selfish soul ambitions. Our goal should be to strive for spiritual maturity and to walk as Christ walked. Very soon now, we will dwell in the very presence of our God in His Kingdom. He cannot and will not tolerate any evil around Him. We should try to become holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect.

Romans 15:13 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Our primary goal as a new Christian is to be baptized with the Holy Spirit of God. If we pray and ask the Lord, He is faithful to impart His very own Spirit to us, so that we can be filled with His divine essence in our spirit man. The baptism in the Holy Spirit is critical to our present welfare and our future well-being, as well. It will strengthen us and improve our lives as nothing else can.

The Holy Spirit will enable us to grow in the deeper things of God and commune intimately with Him. He will give us hope for the future and confidence in our right standing. We will be able to speak in spiritual tongues, so that our spirit man can approach the Lord more effectively. We may receive other spiritual gifts and manifestations, which can be used in our service to mankind.

Perhaps the Lord will give us words of wisdom or revelation to share with others. He may endow us with the ability to heal all those who are sick and afflicted. We may be given the power to work miracles, signs and wonders in His name to attract multitudes to our faith. There is nothing that will be impossible to us, if we sanctify ourselves and ask for the Holy Spirit to manifest in our lives.

We can grow in spiritual maturity through the intervention of the Holy Spirit. He leads and guides us in all things and convicts us of sin. By the power of the Spirit we can become totally sin free, so that we are continuously righteous and focused on achieving godliness instead of worldliness. He also imparts spiritual qualities to us, called spiritual fruit, which will grow and develop in us.

Ephesians 5:9 “(For the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)”

These attributes are like those of God Himself and will improve our relationships with Him and with others. We can grow in goodness and gentleness toward others; become meek and temperate in our walk with God; and acquire love, peace and joy in our lives. These spiritual fruit will one day flourish and overtake us, so that we can become more like Jesus Christ in every way.

We will operate in demonstrable power if we are filled with the Holy Spirit of God. We will discover our eternal callings; fulfill our divine destinies; and complete the ministry of Jesus Christ on the earth. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with fervor and baptize countless numbers in our faith. We will heal the sick; cast out demons; and even raise the dead back to life again.

Nothing will be impossible to us if we are filled with the Holy Spirit, and walk in that same Spirit in our daily lives. We will excel in all that we do and make great strides for the Kingdom of God on this earth. We will take dominion over all the works of the enemy and establish peace, order and stability on this planet, as we have been called to do from the very foundation of the world.

1Corinthians 10:13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].”

Trials, tests and temptations come to each of us, despite our best efforts to walk in love and total righteousness. We should never beat ourselves up if we fall prey to sin and miss the mark. We can always repent and receive forgiveness once again. The Lord is ever willing to restore us to right standing with Him when we make mistakes.

Regeneration is a life-long process and requires due diligence if we will be successful. We cannot overcome our temptation to sin unless we work at it. The Lord will never permit us to be tempted beyond our ability to escape and prevail over our sin.

He is ever faithful to sustain us in the power of His might, so that we can eventually overcome the world, our flesh and the devil. If we pray and ask Him for His Holy Spirit to indwell us, we will see a significant improvement in all our efforts to be sin free. We will be empowered to resist all temptation and strive for godliness in all of our actions.

The Holy Spirit will convict us of sin, lead and guide us into all righteousness. He will encourage us, so that we can learn to be disciplined and self-controlled. He will fill us with spiritual fruit that are like the attributes and characteristics of God Himself.

We will find that we are truly changed and transformed into new creatures in Christ. The things of this world will no longer have a hold on us. We will desire God’s way of doing things and being right over everything else. We will not be contaminated by the defilement all around us. We will choose eternal values over temporary pleasures.

Luke 11:13 “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall [your] Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?”

Only by the power of the Holy Spirit of God, can we effect permanent change in our lives. We should pray that the Lord sends His very own Spirit to us. He will always acknowledge our prayer and come to indwell us in all of His fullness. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is vitally important to our spiritual growth and development. It will empower us and give us real hope for our future.

While it may seem difficult to attain to godly standards, we must remember that the Lord is our total enablement in all situations and circumstances. He will send His very own Holy Spirit to convict us of all that defiles us and strengthen us in the power of His might. If we focus on God and strive for a deeper relationship with Him and His Son, Jesus Christ, He will not let us fail.

If we walk in the Spirit instead of our flesh, we will put our spirit man in ascendancy to our body and soul and experience victory in every area of our lives. We will become righteous and godly and imitate the life of Christ. The Lord will then be able to reveal His plans to us and confer His very own power and authority on us to bring in the Kingdom of God, as we are destined to do.

We will become mature sons and daughters of almighty God. Nothing will be impossible to us in the days ahead. The anointing of Jesus Christ will operate in us, so that we do the works that He did while on the earth and even greater works. We will impact the entire world with the power of God; perform miracles signs and wonders; and prepare the hearts of all men to receive their King.


Walking In Love And Righteousness

1John 5:2-3 “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.”

We should reverence the Lord and show Him all of the deference and respect that He deserves. He is an awesome God that loves us like no other can. We must demonstrate our love for Him and for others at all times. The Lord is merciful and compassionate, but He never permits us to deliberately break any of His commandments. They were created to establish peace and order in our relationships.

We must adhere to the Ten Commandments in our daily lives; they are not optional. If we walk in genuine love for God and for others, we will not even think to break any of the Lord’s moral absolutes, as that would hurt God and men and be a transgression of the law of love itself. We can never neglect our love walk; that is our primary Christian obligation if we wish to enter the Kingdom of God.

We are required to show genuine warmth and affection for all men, and be at peace with them wherever possible. We should strive for love and unity in all our relationships and treat others, as we ourselves would hope to be treated. We have to purposely love others, despite the provocation and resistance we may experience. We can never succumb to anger, bitterness and hatred in our relationships.

We should encourage and pray for one another, especially as the day of the Lord approaches. Jesus Christ wants us to be united in our faith, so that we can overcome all evil with good and usher in His Kingdom, as we are destined to do. We must demonstrate our love by ministering to others and by helping them meet their needs as best we can. There should be no one who is tormented, poor, sick or dying.

We must preach the Gospel of peace with power and conviction, so that many others can be saved to eternal life as we were. We should heal all those who are sick and afflicted in any way. We have the ability to cast out demons and put an end to Satan’s oppression of mankind. We can even raise the dead back to life through the power of the Holy Spirit of God that works in us and through us.

1Timothy 6:11 “But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”

We are sons and daughters of the living God. We cannot be ruled by our flesh or selfish ambitions of the soul. We will have to come up higher in our walk with God if we hope to spend all of eternity with Him in His Kingdom. We must aspire to being holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect. No evil can dwell in His presence and He will reject and expel everything that is defiling and displeasing to Him.

Our eternal welfare is at stake and we will have to strive for righteousness and love in all that we do. If we imitate the laid down life of Jesus Christ, we will be successful. Our Lord and Savior walked in love and peace with all men and was godly in thoughts, words and actions. He mirrored the very righteousness of God in all situations and circumstances and His Father was pleased with Him.

Jesus was human in every way – just as we are – but He was also obedient. He had total faith that the Lord would empower Him to do good and overcome all evil. We have the same anointing power and authority available to us. If we are sanctified for the Lord’s use and fully surrendered to Him, we will be able to accomplish mighty feats on His behalf and bring heaven to the earth, as we are ordained to do.

Deuteronomy 28:9 “The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto Himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in His ways.”

We have an obligation to follow God’s moral absolutes at all times, as we have been taught. If we do so, we will be continuously righteous in His eyes and eligible to enter into His eternal Kingdom. We will receive many blessings and rewards if we walk uprightly before God and keep all of His commandments.

We must additionally have love for God and for others at all times. We cannot succumb to strife and division in our relationships. The Lord insists that we treat one another as He treats us. If we walk in uncompromised love, we will fulfill the whole requirement of the law and be at peace with one another.

We must minister to one another, just as Christ did during His time with us. We should preach the Gospel with power and conviction, so men can be saved to eternal life. We must lay hands on the sick and cast out demons. We will even raise the dead back to life again through the power of God at work through us.

We will have an eternal legacy that we share with all other believers one day in the very near future. The Lord will gather us into His Kingdom for all of eternity and have an ongoing, intimate relationship with us, as He desires. He will be our God and we will be His very own children that are called by His holy name.

We will have peace and prosperity, health and longevity, safety and security, joy and freedom for all time. The Lord will provide all our needs and commune with us face-to-face in His Kingdom. We will be reunited with the dead in Christ and enjoy all the beauty and bounty that the vast universe has to offer us.


Peace With God

Romans 5:1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”

Our faith has the power to save us from our sins and prevent eternal damnation for us. We should share it with all men, so that they are set free in the truth. None of us is inherently righteous or deserving of eternal life, but the Lord desires that we all believe in Him and His power to deliver us from destruction. We can all be saved through our faith in Jesus Christ and enjoy life in His Kingdom as a result. He suffered and died for the express benefit of all mankind.

No longer condemned to permanent punishment for our sins, we have peace with God and hope for our future. Our right standing with Him has been restored for all time. We are justified by our faith, and that alone. If we should sin after having received our salvation, we have grace with God and can always repent. If we are sincere, He will restore us to right standing with Him and reinstate all of our blessings. However, we can never presume to be deliberately rebellious.

We must work at sanctification and ask for the baptism in the Holy Spirit. If we do, it will dramatically change our lives. We will put our spirit man in ascendancy to our flesh and soul, and appropriate divine power to do good. The key to spiritual growth is that we must continually improve our thoughts, attitudes, words and behavior, so that we become more Christ-like. If we imitate His laid down life and walk as He walked, we will be like Him in every way.

Philippians 4:9 “Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”

The Lord can and will use any of us that is sanctified and dedicated to His eternal purpose for mankind. We have to walk in love for Him and others and follow all His commandments to us. We should earnestly desire that all men come to a full knowledge of the truth and be set free to enjoy eternal life and all of its promised blessings. We must spread the Gospel message to all nations of the world. It is not the Lord’s desire that anyone should perish.

We have divine destinies that will be fulfilled in the days to come. We will introduce the Kingdom of God to the earth, as He desires. We will demonstrate the Lord’s love, mercy and compassion to all men and minister as Jesus Christ did to others. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions. We will cast out demons and set men free. We will even raise the dead back to life. We will deliver all of mankind from its oppression and bondage to sin.

The entire earth has to be prepared for the return of Jesus Christ. We need to take dominion over all governments and their economies to make certain that justice and fairness are established as the norms for Kingdom living. We will speak to all of creation and it will line up with the Word and the will of God. Plants, animals and the climate will all soon be in harmony with one another and subject to man once again, as it was in the Garden of Eden.

The Lord will fully empower us to overcome all evil with good. We will not do anything in our own strength. His Holy Spirit will move over the face of the earth and accomplish everything that He intends. Our God desires peace, love and unity in His people and He will not be satisfied until we learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters. Very soon now, the entire world will be changed to line up with godly principles of fairness and justice.

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

Our God will be with us in all that we are called to do in the critical days ahead. He will never leave us or forsake us. We will destroy all works of the enemy that interfere with our serving God and others. Nothing will in any way harm us or deter us from bringing in the Kingdom of God, as we are intended to do. We will overcome all evil with good through the power of God that works in us and through us to change the fate of the entire earth. Nothing will be impossible to us in the days to come.

The righteous will not be evacuated from this planet. Nor will the world be totally destroyed, as some believe. However, it will be dramatically changed for the better. The people of God will restore peace, order and stability and re-create all of nature to line up with the Word and the will of God. The Kingdom of God will be ushered in with power and glory, so that all men will know that the Lord is still in control. They will have to take notice and give Him the honor and praise that He so rightly deserves.

We have an everlasting covenant of peace with God. He will supply all our needs – both temporal and spiritual – and be with us in all that we are called to do to bring in His Kingdom on the earth. He will assign legions of ministering angels to assist us in all of our efforts. Our victory is assured and the Lord will soon boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters. We will be key players in His Kingdom and have eternal rewards for our humble service to Him in ministry to His people.

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.”

We are sons and daughters of the living God. He has a plan for our welfare and not for evil. He will deliver us from the enemy and protect us from all harm. We will not be ashamed for our faith in Him, nor will we be without its benefits. Very soon now, the Kingdom of God will be introduced to the earth realm and we will have a huge part to play in it.

Each of us can serve as a member of the Body of Christ. We can become extensions of Jesus Christ Himself in all that we do. We will take up His ministry where He left off and preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to all the nations of the world. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life again. We will overcome all evil with good by the power of the Holy Spirit.

We will reorganize all human governments and their economies to line up with Kingdom principles. There will soon be peace, fairness and justice on the earth. We will speak to all of creation and set it free to the liberty that we enjoy as sons of God. All plants and animals will one day be in harmony and subject to man. Even the climate will respond to us.

There will be nothing that is impossible to us if we love and serve our God, as we are destined to do. He will imbue us with His very own power and authority to accomplish mighty feats in His name. We will take back the earth and everything in it for the Kingdom of God. We will destroy all demonic strongholds, prevail in all mundane matters and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King.


We Are His Witnesses

Isaiah 44:8 “Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared [it]? ye [are] even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, [there is] no God; I know not [any].”

We are privileged to know the truth that has set us free. We should never permit fear, doubt or unbelief to come at us and disturb our peace with God. He is our Creator and our source for all good things. He will never leave us or forsake us. We will have a just reward for our faith and righteousness. He will not disappoint us or leave us empty-handed.

There are many blessings stored up for us now and for all of eternity. We need only follow the Lord’s commandments to us and walk in love for Him and for others, to see tremendous manifestations of His faithfulness to us. He will supply all of our needs in abundance and empower us to be successful in every area of our lives, now and in the future.

The Lord has wonderful plans for us. He will soon gather us into His everlasting Kingdom, so that we can be with Him for all time. But first, there is important work to be done. He wants to partner with us in reaching all of humanity. We ought to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all of its power, so that many others can be converted, saved and baptized.

We have to make our faith available to all men, so that they can join us in receiving all the blessings that the Lord has in store for us. It is not His desire that anyone perishes for lack of knowledge in the truth. Christ died for all of mankind and salvation is a free gift to all who believe. Every man, woman and child who accepts Christ will receive eternal life.

Hebrews 2:4 “God also bearing [them] witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to His own will”

If we are faithful and obedient to the call of God on our lives, we will work miracles, signs and wonders in His name. Everything that we do will be instrumental in bringing in His Kingdom for all the world to see. We will be testimonies to the power and glory of God, and preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to all races, tongues and nations to set men free in the truth.

All men will look to us for godly examples. We will walk in peace and love and radiate the goodness of God for all to see. We will show mercy and compassion, as we heal the sick and cast out demons that have held men in bondage and oppression. If we have strong faith, we will even raise the dead back to life again, as Christ did when He walked on the earth.

We will speak to all world governments and they will comply with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice for mankind. We will eliminate violence, war and conflict on the earth. All men will learn to dwell as brothers. We will take control of the economy and the people of God will flourish. The wealth of the wicked will soon be redistributed to the righteous.

All of creation is waiting for us to release it from death, decay and destruction into perfect balance, as it was in the Garden of Eden. Natural elements will be in total harmony and subject to man’s dominion. Plants, animals and even the climate will line up with the Word and the will of almighty God. There will be peace, order and stability throughout this world.

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

We are witnesses to the Lord God and His willing servants. We know the truth and it has set us free for all time. We should share our faith with others, so that they may be saved and enjoy real Christian liberty as we do. Our sinfulness is no longer an issue with God; our righteousness in Him has been restored and our sonship status is guaranteed. We have been washed clean in the Blood of Christ Himself and redeemed from the penalty of sin, which is death.

There is only one God and He has made provision for our eternal redemption. If we have believed in His Son, Jesus Christ, and made Him our Lord and Savior, then we are eligible for the free gift of eternal life. We no longer have a sin debt to pay. We now have a covenant of peace with God and He will make good on all of His promises to us. We will overcome the world, our flesh and the devil and inherit all the promised blessings for righteousness.

We will have peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and gladness in the Kingdom of God. The Lord will take vengeance on all our enemies and vindicate us with both men and angels. He will boast of us to all creation and we will rule and reign with Christ Himself. No evil will defile us or ever interfere with our blessings. We will have glorious, resurrection bodies that are impervious to disease and death, and live forever in the presence of our loving God.

Acts 5:32 “And we are His witnesses of these things; and [so is] also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey Him.”

We have received the gift of the Holy Spirit and we will become totally zealous for the things of God. He will be able to do a powerful work in us and through us to reach all of mankind in the days ahead. We will come into our eternal callings and embrace our divine destinies, so we can introduce the Kingdom of God in all of its glory for all the world to see.

The Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached, so that men might be set free in the truth and enjoy eternal life. We will heal the sick and deliver captives free of enemy oppression. We will even raise the dead back to life, just as Christ Himself did. We will destroy all demonic strongholds that have hindered us in any way or held God’s people in bondage to sin.

We will rise up in all the power and authority that has been granted to us and assume our roles as the very sons and daughters of the living God. We will make sweeping changes all over the entire world and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King. Everything in heaven and on the earth will finally be united under the lordship of Jesus Christ.

The sons of God will one day be a praise on the earth. We will share in Christ’s very own honor and glory. We will judge both men and angels and have the heathen for our inheritance. The Lord will appoint us as kings and priests, and we will be overseers of His people. We will enforce godly principles, so that Kingdom integrity is maintained at all times.

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.”

We will glorify God and His Son, Jesus Christ, in all that we think, say and do. We will help to restructure and reorganize all worldly governments, so that they line up with Kingdom principles of fairness and justice, peace and righteousness for all men. We will work to restore all of nature to its original beauty and balance, so that it is harmony with man and with God. Our faith-based words that line up with the Word of God will work miracles that attest to our faith. We will bind all evil and loose blessings to mankind.

Our very own words that are anointed for godly change will bring peace, order and stability on the earth. We will overcome all evil with good and establish Kingdom principles in all of our affairs. There will be no more war, violence or conflict, no more poverty and lack or devastation and destruction of mankind. Men will learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters or be expelled from God’s presence for all of eternity. Our primary goal is to prepare the entire world for the eternal rule and reign of Jesus Christ.

All enemies will be put under Christ’s feet, as we deliver His Kingdom to Him at His coming. He will destroy all the ungodly and their ungodliness in His wrath and banish Satan to the bottomless pit. He will scrutinize all men, living and dead, and determine if they will be eligible to enter into His Kingdom. The righteous will be rewarded in the Kingdom of God for all time. All evil will ultimately be removed from the face of the earth, so that nothing ever defiles God’s people or interrupts the serenity of Kingdom life.

We will no longer be oppressed for our faith by Satan, the enemy of our souls. The Lord will execute vengeance on all of our enemies and reward us for our loyalty to Him in fulfilling His eternal redemption plan. He will boast of us to all creation and be a Father to us for all of eternity. We will rule and reign with Jesus Christ and even be kings and priests of God. We will have endless peace and unlimited prosperity as our blessings for righteousness, and experience safety and security in the perpetual presence of our God.
