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, […]

The Powerful and Compelling Freedom and Responsibility God Has Given Us

In ‘The Secular City‘ by Harvey Cox, he uses the terms Law and Gospel in interesting ways (P. 46). He’s not using them, in the case of the Law, with the idea of walking in obedience to God’s commands, but rather, in regard “to the tension between bondage to the past and freedom for the future.” He goes on to say this: “Man cannot live without Law, but when Law becomes wholly determinative, he is no longer really man.” What he means by determinative there is that […]

The Kingdom of God: An Alternative Civilization

Many Christian wrongly assume that the kingdom of God is the same as the church. That’s not accurate. The kingdom of God is all-comprehensive, while the church serves a vital, but limited role in the overall picture of things. The purpose of the church is to model the kingdom of God at the local level, while teaching the nations to learn and obey all the commands Jesus taught the disciples, which is another way of saying all the laws and commands revealed throughout the entirety of the […]

The Extraordinary Implications Of The New Creation On Planet Earth

I don’t think most Christians understand what it means in the Scriptures that we are a new creation. Not only that, but the fact the new creation goes beyond the individual to the corporate New Jerusalem. The basic difference is when we’re identified as new creatures it is a reference to the individual Christian, and when New Jerusalem is mentioned, it refers to all the people of God – past, present and future combined. What I want to focus on is what this means in the present […]

The New Creation Civilization Starts from Within and Works its Way Out

Some have asked me concerning what this New Creation Civilization thing all about. A large number of Christians aren’t aware of the comprehensiveness the creation was meant to be by God, and in the aftermath of sin and the consequent solution offered by the work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His subsequent resurrection, the awareness of the totally of God’s plan has in many cases, contracted even more. While it can be overwhelming for those that haven’t heard these things before, the reality is it […]

God’s Answer to Globalism and Imperialism is Nationalism

source: INFRAKSHUN Over the duration of the history of mankind on the earth, the human race, starting with Adam and Eve, have sought power that was either prematurely grabbed for, or after sin, power that was illegitimate, with evil being the source behind it. The sin of Eve was that she saw the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil as something God was keeping from her, and so she ate of it after being deceived by the devil into believing she was ready to exercise […]

Will Space Exploration Really Make Earth More Peaceful? – My Response to Neil deGrasse Tyson

  In a recent interview, Neil deGrasse Tyson asserted that exploration of space in the future could be a catalyst to produce peace on earth. In this article we’ll look at why that’s unlikely over the long term, but in the short term could be how it plays out. According to Tyson, the reason he believes peace on earth could be the outcome of space exploration is because it would alleviate the perceived lack of resources on earth, which Tyson asserts is a major reason for past […]

Christian Victory: God’s Kingdom and God’s Law

  Jesus Christ is King and Lord of heaven and earth, and as confirmed by His teaching in response to His disciples asking Him how to pray, part of the instruction was, “Thy kingdom come they will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” demonstrating it was His will that the earth would be filled with the will of God and kingdom of God. A key issue associated with that is this: how is the kingdom of God to come to earth? How are His […]
