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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Building God’s Kingdom And The Power of Strategic Waiting

  Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. There are a number of places in the Bible that talk about the value of patience and waiting. In this article I want to talk about what it means to wait as we work on building the kingdom of God on earth. Lessons from Billionaire Charlie Munger Recently I wrote an […]

A Lesson in Dominion from the Chinese

There are a lot of things to take into consideration when contemplating the fact that the followers of Jesus Christ will inherit the earth, or have dominion over it, as instructed by God. An example being used by China in Africa is instructive in Christians taking dominion in a way that isn’t intimidating. Recently Chinese President Xi Jinping announced that China was offering $60 billion in financing for a variety of African projects, adding it would be “in the form of assistance, investment and loans….” One odd […]

Christianity as an Alternative Civilization

It’s unfortunate that most Christians and Christians leaders have relegated the work of Christ to being primarily related to the individual, instead of understanding that while it starts there, it is meant to be a community of people that are salt and light in their surrounding localities. In 2 Cor. 5:17 its says, “Therefore, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” Paul was talking about the individual believer there. In Rev. […]

The Extraordinary Purpose God Has for Man in This Age – #4

In this 4th video of the series, we’ll look at God’s remedy in response to the consequences of sin and its residing within man, and how it relates to His overall purpose he had from before the creation started. I’m not only talking about initial salvation here, specifically as it relates to the individual believer, but comprehensive salvation mentioned in the Bible a number times in response to obedience to God’s commands. In other words, how the entire earth is impacted by God as His people learn […]

Is Christianity Doomed – or Does it have a Future?

Is. 65:17-25 Ez. 36:22-38 Is. 66:22-24 The combination of scriptures above are too long to include in one article, but I highly recommend you read them, as they give the tremendous promises of God concerning the future of His people on planet earth. New heaven and new earth will endure I want to mention Is. 66: 22-24 first, where it talks of the new heavens and new earth He makes, which will endure before Him. It goes on to say so will our offspring and name endure […]
