The Kingdom of God, Productivity, and Taxes

kingdom of god, productivty and taxes

The majority of Christians, unfortunately, have bought into the idea of taking the wealth from productive citizens and having it distributed to them. This undermines the value of the creative, innovative and visionary entrepreneurs, resulting in a much weaker economy, as capital is consumed at the expense of economic growth. For all the excessive taxes levied on those with wealth, it removes the usage of that money for investment and productive endeavors. In this article we’ll look at why this is wrong according to the Bible, and […]

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 […]

A Revival We Need: Changing Leaders and Nations via God’s Laws

God's law, leaders, and nations

Deuteronomy 17:14-20 14 When thou art come unto the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me; 15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the Lord thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother. 16 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

To Reject Nationalism and the Nations is to Deny the Very Essence of Who We Are

god created the nations and their boundaries

When talking about nationalism, the first thing that needs to be understood is the framework of nationalism is an ethnic people, family, community, culture, language and history. Genesis 10 confirms this, as it lists the nations of the earth, while Genesis 11 explains how it came about. Notice in Genesis 10 how it explains some of the descendants of these people spreading out across the earth. That means Genesis 11 wasn’t historically linear in the account, but explained what had already happened in Genesis 10. The entire […]

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 […]

Rent Or Own A Home: Kingdom Implications

Using a definition of the kingdom of God representing His rule and reign in all areas of life, based upon the guidelines of the Bible, it’s important to consider the major decision of whether or not to buy or rent a home or place to live. The reason why it’s so vital is because the traditional family is a key component and foundation of the kingdom of God on earth, and if it’s not healthy, the world is made a worse place because of it. In this […]
