Kingdom Come

God does love. God is love, and He is the God of all love. Love comes from Him. But He does not love everything and everybody. What God loves is what He made. Which includes the way He made it. What He made it to be and how He made it to be. It is this very manner of being, and very way of being that He is inviting us back into. We were born outside of it, and had no way back. Because of a mistake made long ago by those who came before us. No way back unless He were to provide One. And He did. And He does. For all who will receive it, which includes sticking to it.

God is not sending anyone to Hell. The choice has been given by God to men, and their own choice brings salvation or damnation. That’s what you say to folks who ask how could a loving God send people to Hell. The answer is – He is not. Grace is not given so we can do whatever we want. If you find what you are doing or not doing does not line up with what He said – you have to change. You promised that you would. That’s what Repentance is, a promise to change. Much grace is needed every step of the Way. Much grace is given. Grace is for people who repent. Not so that sinners can keep on sinning. If you don’t repent, there is no grace. Just Hell.

There is a deep and abiding misunderstanding in the atmosphere of religious christianity throughout the whole earth, over the meaning of a single word in the Bible. It has caused so much confusion and misunderstanding. Perhaps a better word would be deception, as it is part of the deception in the Last Days that Jesus warned us about. He told us again and again that there would be many teachers and preachers saying what people wanted them to say.

These teachers have crafted and shaped their sermons to cater to a highly distracted and self obsessed people. Addicted to lust and allergic to God, as one Pastor put it. Assuring them that if they accept Jesus without becoming like Him, they would be saved. That their salvation is by grace alone, they don’t have to do anything but show up to church and be entertained, if and when they feel like it. They don’t have to do anything but be saved. It is exactly what they want to hear. Almost all of what is known as the church today is made up of these people.

If you want to get the results that Jesus got, you have to preach the gospel that He preached. He preached repentance and the Kingdom of God. The two are not arbitrary, repentance is the very thing required to enter the Kingdom of God, as this world is on its way out. It is all coming to an end. It is the lack of understanding of the meaning of this word that is behind the exponential rise of Humanism inside the church, for almost a century now. It is the word world, and it does not mean people. People are included in what God made, but they are not all that He made. More importantly, in his current fallen state, man is not the way God made Him. Which is why He gave us Christ. So that any who would, could return to the way God made them. Instead of the way sin made them.

The atmosphere of our planet has multiple layers, just as the ocean does. The earth  has multiple layers within itself. Is it any coincidence that Greek being the most accurate language in the history of the world, has 4 words for world. Each of them different, yet complementing the others. So that when brought together they make up a whole. This is one of the reasons that God used Alexander to establish the largest empire in the known world, to spread a common language. Not since Nimrod led the rebellion against God at the tower of Babel, shortly after the flood of Noah, when God had to confuse the language, had there been a common one. That one was being used against Him, this one would be used for Him.

Aion is the first word, it’s where we get our word eon from, and it means age or fixed span of time of indefinite duration. The Hebrew word it was translated from in the Bible includes the duration being hidden or concealed. Because of course, it’s up to God how long He will give something to run its course. Timing goes with Authority. The second word is Ge which is the land as opposed to the water. Terra firma, solid ground. Every solid planet would qualify as Ge. But you would need another word entirely to refer to habitable earth, or inhabited land. And that word is Oikoumene.

So in just the first three we have a space of time needed for anything to exist in, the land itself as the thing existing within that time, and then the land being habitable so as to sustain life. But it is not until we get to the fourth word that everything comes together and is given its proper place ability and function, and that word is Kosmos. This is the main word for world used in the New Testament, including John 3:16, and is used almost 200 times. Most of them in the Gospel of John, where it is almost always referring to a system that is opposing God. It literally means the order and arrangement of things. If anyone who cares to would take the small amount of time to go back and read John chapter[s] 1, 3, or 14-17 and substitute the original Greek meaning of order and arrangement of things for the word world every time it is used, you will be shocked and amazed. You will get a revelation of God’s Truth in your spirit, and it will click. You’ll get it, you’ll understand – and everything will change.

Never again will you be blinded by this deception of Humanism crept into the church, of God loving people the way they are. That is nowhere in the Bible. Don’t believe me, go look for it yourself. God does love and God is love. But what God loves is what He made, which includes the way he made it. God does love man as part of what He made, but He does not love man or creation the way it has become through the corruption of sin. You do have to come as you are, but you cannot stay the way you are. Christ is not some remote esoteric ideal, He is what you have to become like. Everyone in Heaven will be like Him or becoming like Him on some level, before they get there.

For anyone who does not want God or doesn’t want to be with Him, well there’s only one other place to go. Don’t blame God, He isn’t sending anyone to Hell. They just didn’t take Him seriously. Well Judgement Day will change all that. It is this corrupted order and arrangement that Jesus came into. He came to destroy the old order that had been corrupted by sin and existed apart from God, and restore for those of us born in the old, what would be a new order. But is actually the order and arrangement that God has always existed in. He has invited everyone back into it, but we don’t have to come. That invitation will not go on forever, and is now at an end. If you are a Believer, then you are already in it. It’s not your job to get everybody saved, it’s your job to tell them the Truth.

In the second chapter of the Book of Daniel, a king is given a dream. When the ancient city of Babylon was the greatest city in the earth, it had a King who was the greatest king in the earth. His name was Nebuchadnezzar. For the people of Israel being held captive there, this time was known as the Babylonian Captivity. Daniel was among the captives. God, in dealing with Nebuchadnezzar, the pride of man, all kings and all kingdoms . . . gave him a dream. In the dream he saw a huge magnificent enormous statue of a man, which represented the great kingdoms and empires from Babylon (then) to the time of the Antichrist (now). The different parts made of various metals and representing different kingdoms is explained in chapter two by Daniel, as he interprets the king’s dream.

If you haven’t read it or it’s been awhile, you should go read it. Suffice it to say the empires are Babylon, Medo-Persia, Alexander and Greece, Rome, with the ten toes representing the European Union (or its rough equivalent) as it will be taken over by the Antichrist. The statue in representing the greatest and most dominant kings and kingdoms, represents all of them. As well as man in all his pride trying to rule himself instead of letting God be his King. We are now at the very end of the time that God has given men to seek Him and His will for their lives, rather than following their own. The government of men is failing and the economy of men set up by themselves to provide for themselves . . . is about to collapse. Which will send all who don’t know the Lord – running into the arms of the Antichrist.

To facilitate the rise of the Antichrist the power of the West had to decline. All that was needed on our end was a president who would not only weaken our power and shake the hand of the Antichrist – but would play his part in enabling him to rise. We’ve had one for four years, he was re-elected last year. And it wouldn’t matter who it was, all of Scripture will come to pass. Each man simply chooses which side of God’s Word he is on. The decisions we make determine the direction we take, and the direction we take determines our destiny. It’s not some great mystery.

In the dream Daniel explains that the rock cut without hands smashes the statue to pieces, completely destroying it. The rock represents the Kingdom of God, and the place on the statue the rock hits, its point of Impact . . . is the feet of the statue. Which is the time we’re in now. Jesus isn’t coming back to take sides, He’s coming back to take over. For those who don’t know Him . . . it won’t be pretty. But for you and I, and any who choose to Believe – it will be the very thing we’ve been waiting for all of our lives. The Bible calls this looking forward to His Coming as the Blessed Hope. If you love Jesus then we’re looking forward to it together. He’ll be here momentarily.

The End

Coming of Christ - Return of The King

The Interruption

The Day is coming and it’s coming quickly.  If you want to grow in the Lord, if you freely admit the need to come up higher and become more Christlike – then you must be brutally Honest with yourself right now, in what I’m about to ask. As a Prophet, I don’t have everything for you, no Minister does. I only have some things, but what I have for you is Essential. You need Everything the Lord has for you through any true Minister you’re connected to, in any way. Everything. From the Apostle and Prophet just as you do from the Evangelist, the Pastor and the Teacher. You need all of what each Office of ministry has for you, we all do. You don’t get to choose them like flavors, they work together like a Body. You’re either connected to them, or you’re not. And it’s no accident that you get the Word from those who are connected to you.

So here’s the question. Are you ready for Jesus to come right now – this second. I mean are you really ready.  Are you. He’s coming just like that. If there is any hesitation or a slight panic you sense deep within yourself as you consider it – that’s in the Bible!  It’s what the Bible calls drawing back. You may even be getting ready for Him, but He’s not coming for those who are Getting Ready.  That hesitation is the very thing that would cause you to Draw Back. Which does not please the Lord, and would be bad for you. If the reality of the question shocks any, or you’re still in shock – you’re not even Getting ready for Him to come back. If that’s the case you need to repent. Right now. Because listen to me friend, the 2 main events in All of Scripture – are His 1st Coming and His 2nd Coming. One happened 2000 years ago, the other is right at the door. I mean moments away, and no I’m not exaggerating. I’m simply speaking the language of the Bible.

The return of Jesus Christ to the earth will not be as Savior, it will be as King. If He is not your King right now, then you are not one of those He’s coming back for. He came as Savior already, and you don’t get to make Him your King when He gets here. We’ve had plenty of time. Plenty. If more time would have helped the Lord would have given it. Length of time given is not the problem – the depth of our Rebellion is. In our Fallen Nature we are against God. We need help, much help – and he has sent it. Twenty centuries ago. Now He’s coming back to see who took the help – and to see who was just talking.

The only help He gave was the help to Change and become like Him. Most have refused this help. I’m not talking about being Saved now, I’m talking about making it out on the first boat. Most believers will be going through the Tribulation, but if you obeyed His Word – you won’t.  The Rapture isn’t for believers, it’s for the Overcomers, those who obeyed God.  The demons believe.  Those who still Believe by the end of the Tribulation will join us at His 2nd Coming. Don’t believe me, search the Scriptures and check it out yourself.  Many many so called Christians will be shocked, literally. They thought they could work God the way they worked everything else in their life. Not a chance, God is not mocked remember. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about taking God seriously. Don’t be one of those who didn’t.

His Return will be an Interruption for everyone who lives on the earth, and the Bible says so. But for all who are not Ready – it will be catastrophic. It will surprise hundreds of millions of people who called themselves Christians. Not because they didn’t have a chance to get it right, but because they wouldn’t get it right.  They never really meant it. They didn’t Believe in Him or His Word – like that. One translation says that they would be religious, but reject the power that could make them godly. Another says they will appear to have a godly life, but they will not let it’s power change them. Just about 2 years ago the Lord put it on my heart to confront every member of our Ecclesia [during a sermon] with that question. Surprisingly, if the Lord had returned then, none of us were ready within ourselves.  We could tell.  You can tell.  I am very glad to say that now, we are . . .
