A Thriving Christian Civilization is Inevitable – it’s Our Destiny: Part 3

journey of working from the inward to the outward

We must interpret the Bible from a corporate perspective, not only an individual perspective. Here are the Bible verses we’re looking at today: 1 Cor. 3:16 2 Cor. 6:16 Phil. 2:12 Mt. 5:16 1 Pet. 2:12 In the first two articles of this series we talked about heaven coming to earth and the invisible becoming visible. In this article we’ll take it to the final step of moving from inward to outward. It should be understood that while there is some overlap when talking about the invisible […]

The Purpose of God is the Heavenly City Planted on Earth

new jerusalem and the purpose of god

Hebrews 11:9-11 9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. The scriptures above are a reference to Abraham, who according to Paul (Rom. 4:16) was the father of us all. While he was the human father of many nations and the faith, he still had as his main focus […]

Building the Kingdom of God is a Marathon: Stay in the Race

building the kingdom of God is a marathon

Over the years I’ve been involved in a lot of activities, including running businesses, buying businesses, investing in film projects, investing in the stock market, being a financial advisor, and working on starting churches, among other things. A major takeaway to success or failure I’ve learned while engaged in those things is that the only way to win is to stay in the race. There are of course other elements to success that are included with staying in the race, but all of them won’t matter if […]

New Jerusalem: The Pattern for the Nations to Live by

New jerusalem is our pattern the nations are to live by

Revelation 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. The nations are expected to walk in the light of the revelation of New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven, as evidenced by the scripture above, and a number other scriptures as well. For example, it’s a direct answer to the part of the Lord’s prayer when He taught us to pray: “thy kingdom come thy […]

new jerusalem coming down from heaven

  Hebrews 12: 22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, Did you know that the writer of Hebrews clearly revealed that the early believers had already come to the heavenly Jerusalem? It is stated very clearly in […]

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, […]

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 […]

Building God’s Kingdom at the Local Level

For a long time there’s a predilection for Christians that see the value of building the kingdom of God on earth, to embrace an overall vision that usually tends to encompass the earth, rather than focus on where they live at the local level. One of the reasons I see for that happening is God in fact does have as His purpose for His people to have dominion over the earth. Where most of us tend to go wrong is we fail to take the global vision […]
