Love one another as Jesus has loved us.

The Eternal King

The one who conquers will have this heritage. I will be his God and he will be My son. Revelation 21:7

First century Christians church paradigm revolutionized the world. The church was a single worldwide fellowship of believers. A local congregation was a mini-church. Bound together to embody the Kingdom of God in their local community.

These early Christians knew individual actions had significant ramifications for all. So they lived their lives accordingly.

Christians who…

Did not separate themselves from their community. They did not use eccentric speech or engage in eccentric lifestyles.

Did not form congregations that competed with each other for members.

Understood sin contaminates your life and others. Especially those you love.

Knew there is not a date of expiration on the vows you make to God or on His behalf.

Believed God anoints His spiritual representatives and defines their duties— no one else.

Were eternally thankful that spiritual lineage is more important than biological ancestry.

Willingly and frequently helped the poor.

Trusted God and followed His standards for living a redeemed, holy life.

Jesus is returning soon for His Bride— His Church!

A worldwide body of believers…

No longer compromising God’s truth.

Boldly proclaiming the Gospel— God’s heavenly treaty with earth’s inhabitants.

Reigning over the territory the Lord has bequeathed to them.

Confidently confronting the powers of darkness in whatever form they take.

Many, me included. Believe this is the generation that will witness Christ’s return as foretold by Him.

“There will be earth shattering events. The heavens themselves will seem to be shaken with signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars.

And across the earth the outsider nations will feel powerless. Terrified in the face of a roaring flood of fear and foreboding. Crashing like tidal waves upon them.

‘What’s happening to the world?’ people will wonder.

The cosmic order will be destabilized. And then, at that point, they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and blazing glory.

So when the troubles begin. Don’t be afraid. Look up. Raise your head high. Because the truth is that your liberation is fast approaching.

Look over there at that fig tree and all the trees surrounding it. When the leaves break out of their buds. Nobody has to tell you that summer is approaching. It’s obvious to you.

It’s the same in the larger scheme of things. When you see all these things happening. You can be confident that the Kingdom of God is approaching.

I’m telling you the truth. This generation will not pass from the scene before everything I’m telling you has occurred. Heaven and earth will cease to exist before My words ever fail.

So be careful. Guard your hearts. They can be made heavy with moral laxity, with drunkenness, with the hassles of daily life. Then the day I’ve been telling you about might catch you unaware and trap you. Because it’s coming. Nobody on earth will escape it.

So you have to stay alert. Praying that you’ll be able to escape the coming trials. So you can stand tall in the presence of the Son of Man. Luke 21:25-36

Don’t let anyone fool you. Many will come and claim to be Me. They will say that they are the Messiah, and they will fool many people.

You will soon hear about wars and threats of wars but don’t be afraid. These things will have to happen first, but that isn’t the end. Nations and kingdoms will go to war against each other. People will starve to death, and in some places there will be earthquakes.

But this is just the beginning of troubles.

You will be arrested, punished and even killed. Because of Me you will be hated by people of all nations. Many will give up and will betray and hate each other. Many false prophets will come and fool a lot of people. Evil will spread and cause many people to stop loving others.

But if you keep on being faithful right to the end, you will be saved. When the good news about the Kingdom has been preached all over the world and told to all nations. The end will come.

Someday you will see that “Horrible Thing” in the holy place. Just as the prophet Daniel said.

Everyone who reads this must try to understand! If you are living in Judea at that time, run to the mountains. If you are on the roof of your house, don’t go inside to get anything. If you are out in the field, don’t go back for your coat. It will be a terrible time for women who are expecting babies or nursing young children. And pray that you won’t have to escape in winter or on a Sabbath.

This will be the worst time of suffering since the beginning of the world. Nothing this terrible will ever happen again. If God doesn’t make the time shorter, no one will be left alive. But because of God’s chosen ones, He will make the time shorter.

Someone may say, ‘Here is the Messiah!’ or ‘There He is!’ But don’t believe it. False messiahs and false prophets will come and work great miracles and signs. They will even try to fool God’s chosen ones. But I have warned you ahead of time.

If you are told that the Messiah is out in the desert, don’t go there! And if you are told that he is in some secret place, don’t believe it! The coming of the Son of Man will be like lightning that can be seen from east to west.

Right after those days of suffering, the sun will become dark, and the moon will no longer shine. The stars will fall, and the powers in the sky will be shaken. Then a sign will appear in the sky, and there will be the Son of Man.

All nations on earth will weep when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. At the sound of a loud trumpet, He will send his angels to bring his chosen ones together from all over the earth. Matthew 24:4-31

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking. Marrying and giving in marriage. Until the day that Noah entered the ark. They did not understand until the flood came and took them all away.

So will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then there will be two men in the field. One will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill. One will be taken, and one will be left.

Therefore, be on the alert. For you do not know which day your Lord is coming. But be sure of this. That if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming. He would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.

For this reason you also must be ready. For the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.” Matthew 24:36-44

Everything will be destroyed. So you should serve and honor God by the way you live. You should look forward to the day when God judges everyone, and you should try to make it come soon. On that day the heavens will be destroyed by fire, and everything else will melt in the heat. 2 Peter 3:11-12

All of you are children of light and children of the day. We don’t belong to night or darkness. So then, let’s not sleep like the others, but let’s stay awake and stay sober. People who sleep. Sleep at night. People who get drunk. Get drunk at night.

Since we belong to the day. Let’s stay sober. Wearing faithfulness and love as a piece of armor that protects our body and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 1 Thessalonians 5:5-8 

Aim at and pursue…

righteousness— right standing with God and true goodness.

godliness. Which is the loving fear of God and being Christ-like.

faith.

love.

steadfastness— patience.

gentleness of heart.

Fight the good fight of the faith. Lay hold of the eternal life to which you were summoned. For which you confessed the good confession of faith before many witnesses.

Keep all His precepts unsullied and flawless. Irreproachable. Until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ the Anointed One. 1 Timothy 6:11-12 and 14

I am more than ready for a family reunion with the disciples of the past and present. But until that day I vow to open the eyes of the blind. Free the captives from dark dungeons. Live a life of unity, love and service. One worthy of admiration and duplication.

Please join me at this family reunion!

Say yes to Papa’s gift of salvation.

Make Jesus the Lord of your heart and life.

Be a VOICE in the darkness!

Hand On Well Used Old Bible Under Painted Light

The Lord is not a god of the past. He is the great I AM. It is His delight to reveal the mysteries of the Kingdom to revolutionaries. Individuals who unconditionally trust Him, not man.

Although a slave by birth, Joshua’s words and actions were those of a revolutionary. He unequivocally believed that with God nothing is impossible. That God is faithful and never forsakes His chosen.

Second in command to Moses, Joshua accompanied Moses whenever he went to meet with the Lord. This nurtured Joshua’s personal relationship with the Lord. Increasing his faith in the Lord’s trustworthiness. Preparing him for his Kingdom destiny.

Joshua, not Moses, would lead the children of Israel into the land promised to their forefathers.

Today’s believer must have this same revolutionary mindset as Joshua. Why?

Papa refuses to pour new, creative ideas and blessings into dead attitudes and works.

What is a revolutionary mindset?

Scripture is your life’s compass.

Willing to fight until the victory is yours.

Stepping out of your comfort zone into the territory of the unknown.

Standing in the gap for those rejected by society or religion.

Defending and enlarging the Kingdom, no matter the cost.

Demolishing ungodly paradigms.

Dissolving ungodly relationships.

Unless you allow the Lord to sanctify— renew your mind. Your perception and knowledge of the Kingdom will remain flawed, ineffectual and irrelevant.

You are not to live any longer like other people in the world. Their minds are set on worthless things. They can’t understand because they are in the dark. They are excluded from the life that God approves of because of their ignorance and stubbornness. Ephesians 4:17-18

A life that glorifies Papa by trusting and accepting His righteousness as truth.

Trusting Papa frees you from the shackles of worldly desires and attitudes. This freedom allows you to confidently pursue your Kingdom destiny.

Knowing the Lord has promised never to leave or forsake you. Disciples of Christ tackle whatever the Lord commands. Even if it seems impossible or is unfamiliar.

Do not foolishly think satan will raise a white flag of surrender just because you are a child of God. He hates you as much as he hates Papa. Your only hope in this battle for your soul is to surrender to God’s Lordship.

This unconditional surrender unleashes the Lord’s miraculous power on your behalf. Just as it did with Joshua.

Power that collapsed the walls around an impenetrable city.

Power that made hailstones more deadly than swords.

Power that made time stand still.

Yes, the sun stood still, and the moon stopped. Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies.

Is it not written in the book of Jashar? “And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.”

There was no day like that before it or after it. When the Lord listened to the voice of a man. For the Lord fought for Israel. Joshua 10:13-14

Like Joshua your trust and obedience must be unwavering,. You must be willing to fight until the victory is yours. You have an enemy— satan. He will do whatever is necessary to destroy you.

Unless you are ruthless when it comes to sin. The Lord will not come to your defense.

This is why the Lord commanded Joshua to obliterate entire nations from the face of the earth. He knew if these sinful people were allowed to live and intermingle with the Israelites. His children would be compromised by sin and would no longer obey His commandments.

As you cross over into your promise land— your destiny. Remember these words of Joshua.

“The Lord your God will expel them right in front of your eyes and force them out of your way. You will take their land as the Lord your God told you.

Now you must be very strong to keep and to do everything written in the Book of Moses Teachings. Don’t turn away from them. Don’t get mixed up with the nations left in your territory. Don’t ever mention the names of their gods or swear an oath to them. Don’t ever serve their gods or bow down to them. You must be loyal to the Lord your God as you have been until now.

The Lord has forced important and powerful nations out of your way. Not one person has ever been able to stand up to you. One of you used to chase a thousand. That was because the Lord your God was fighting for you as He had promised you. Be very careful to love the Lord your God.

But if you turn away and go along with the other nations within your borders. If you intermarry with them or associate with them. Then you should know that the Lord your God will never again force these people out of your way. Instead, they will be a snare and a trap for you. A whip laid to your sides and thorns in your eyes. Until none of you are left in this good land that the Lord your God has given you.

Pay attention because I will soon die like everyone else. You know with all your heart and soul. That not one single promise which the Lord your God has given you has ever failed to come true. Every single word has come true. Every good word the Lord your God has promised you has come true for you.

In the same way, the Lord will bring about every evil curse. Until He has destroyed you from this good land that He has given you.

When you ignore the conditions placed on you by the Lord your God and follow other gods. Serve them and bow down to them. The Lord will be angry with you. Then you will quickly disappear from the good land He has given you.  Joshua 23:3-16

The Lord has given the Church a mandate to persevere until His earthly return. To earnestly and passionately teach and live the good news of the Kingdom— the Gospel.

Disciples of Christ are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. Matthew 5:13

You cannot live a life of compromise. No servant is able to serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon, riches or anything in which you trust and on which you rely. Luke 16:13

Choose wisely.

You can have only one Master— one Lord. Jesus.
