Temporal Success and Influence of the World is Diminishing

the world has run out of gas and doesn't know it

For Christians that understand the times we’re living in, there has arisen a tremendous opportunity in numerous areas of life to gain influence, as the world, which has attempted to decouple from Christianity, is experiencing the loss of sanity and meaning. This is obvious in many areas of life, including media, entertainment, family, work, business, banking, economics, education, and even false Christianity and false churches. It’s similar to a car that runs out of gas but continues to move forward on momentum. For a short time it […]

Daily Working in the Kingdom with Our Eyes on the Ultimate Prize

Doing God's work in light of the eternal purpose

It’s of importance to take into account the fact that Jesus did many works during His time on the earth that weren’t obviously connected to the overall purpose of God for mankind. He would cast out devils, heal the sick, raise the dead, and model the type of humanity He had in mind when creating us. Yet, His purpose for being manifest in the flesh was to die on the cross for our sins, be resurrected, and be taken back into heaven where He was sent from, […]

Resurrection First, or Will Christians Colonize the Universe?

christians spreading to outer space and the planets

source: CBS If the global population were to grow at a 1 percent rate over the next thousand years, starting with the current estimate of about 7.8 billion people living on the planet, by 3020 there would be an incredible 16.3 trillion people dwelling on the earth. In this article I want to examine some of the implications of this, and why I believe it’s possible that God will allow us to colonize the planets. Population growth is a blessing according to God The first thing I […]

J.R.R. Tolkien: Why His Works Endure, Influence and Move People

J.R.R. Tolkien leaning against tree

At a time when C.S. Lewis was a theist, but not a Christian, he had a conversation with J.R.R. Tolkien and another Christian, Hugo Dyson, concerning the implications of myth as it related to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. Lewis struggled with the idea that a sacrifice 2,000 years ago could help us in the “here and now.” Tolkien and Dyson pointed out to Lewis that he had no trouble appreciating the sacrifices laid out in pagan literature, but when considering the sacrifice revealed […]

Jeff Durbin Talks on The Law & the Kingdom of God

The law and the kingdom of God

Below is a good video on a number of elements associated with the law and kingdom of God. I included a few slightly edited excerpts from the talk given by Jeff Durbin. The editing is only for the purpose of making the text readable, because the spoken word usually doesn’t translate well to the written word without some editing. None of the excerpts had any of the meaning changed. They are included to give an idea of the content of the talk. * There’s a swell of […]

It’s Our Enemies That are Desperate and Losing – Not Us

Jesus will crush serpent under His feet

A lot of Christians are getting somewhat overwhelmed by the seemingly endless attacks on our values and culture by our enemies, concerning almost every segment of life; it gives the impression they’re rolling over us with no ability to stop them. The reality is, it’s the opposite. The real reason they’re ramping up their activity with the mainstream media allies is because it’s them that are on the defensive, not us; they’re getting desperate, which is why they’re casting off all restraint and not even trying to […]

The Kingdom of God: The Intersection of the Almighty and Faithful Stewards

Kingdom of God on earth spread by faithful stewards

source: gathertothegarden   The kingdom of God remains a mystery to many believers, to this day, primarily because it’s wrongly assumed to be nothing more than the church and its practices. That is an extremely limited understanding because the kingdom of God permeates all areas of life, and works to put everything under the Lordship of Christ. And when you consider the church, under most practices of the day, there is almost nothing the vast majority of those attending church services are allowed to do. Even among […]

Is the City of God Meant to be an Alternative Civilization?

christianity is a new civilization

There is no doubt the city of God is an alternative civilization birthed by Jesus Christ; one that is based upon His very image. There is an important question to answer in conjunction with that reality, and it is this: since the city of God is another civilization that is an alternative to the worldy civilization, what are the practical implications of that truth? If you struggle with the idea of the city of God being a new and alternative civilization, think in terms of the fact […]

Diversity, Equality, Inclusivity and Tolerance: Dwellers in the Trojan Horse Destroying the Church

the deception of Diversity, Equality, Inclusivity and Tolerance

John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. One of the more abused and distorted scriptures in the bible is John 13:34, and others similar to it. A lot of people I’ve seen quoting it suggest it means we are to have a nice emotional response to people, no matter what they think, say, or do. This is a totally unbiblical understanding of the verse. An explanation of the verses […]
