Secrets to Christians Taking Dominion Over Planet Earth

From the beginning of the creation of the first man and woman in the universe, God communicated to them that they were to have dominion over the planet. Before the creation of Eve God gave Adam a task to fulfill of naming or categorizing the animals. He was doing so as head of creation under the rule of God. Part of the exercise was for Adam to also discover that it wasn’t good for him to be alone, and that he needed a helper for him to […]

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 […]

Understanding The Times We Live In – First Step In War For Western Civilization

1 Chron. 12: 32 And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment. It is vital for Christians to understand the time we live in so we know what it is to do, as the children of Issachar did long ago. At this time of history – at least in the U.S. and the West in general, we’re in […]

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 […]

Christianity’s Role in the Nations and States

To comprehend what the role of Christianity is in regard to the nations and the states, we have to first provide a definition of what they are in order to move forward with how Christianity should and is required to interact with both. Here’s a working definition from Hugh Seton-Watson on page 1 of his ‘Nations and States‘: “A state is a legal and political organization, with the power to require obedience and loyalty from its citizens. A nation is a community of people, whose members are […]

Planet Earth and the Victorious Kingdom of God

“My kingdom is not of this world” doesn’t mean what most think it means. Jesus Christ is already victorious – is working by the Holy Spirit to spread His Kingdom throughout the world. As the Holy Scriptures reveal the kingdom of God, by far the most misunderstood and misinterpreted verse is John 18:36, where Jesus responding to Pilate, said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” Here’s the context of the verse: John 18:33-37 33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and […]

If We Really Know God We’ll Keep His Commandments

1 John 2:3-4 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. Psalm 111:10 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. Do you have knowledge of God or just speak from what you’ve read. As knowledge comes from experience from […]
