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 […]

Christians Can and Never Will Be Defeated

2 Corinthians 5:17 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. Many Christians have become demoralized because of the media reporting on the rampage being perpetuated upon our history and way of life. While it gives the appearance of an unstoppable juggernaut, in fact […]

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 […]

Why the Laws of God are Ignored and Misunderstood by Many Christians

we are to continue to learn and obey God's laws as Christians

For a long time most Christians have misunderstood the laws of God revealed in the Bible, and when it’s pointed out they’re still in effect, they usually refer to a verse or two that have nothing to do with the law as a standard of conduct, but instead refer to salvation via the work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection and ascension into heaven. It is far past time the record is set straight, as it’s obvious we aren’t justified by the works of […]

source: ABC 7 Chicago Christian Resistance to the State as Savior and Healer The state is not be considered our source of deliverance in these difficult times we’re living in. That’s an idol that needs to be torn down, as Herbert Schlossberg stated decades ago in his excellent book: Idols for Destruction. On page 180 in the book he said this: People who have experienced liberty often require strong motivations to give it up. Those who wish to impose state power on them provide the strongest reason […]

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 […]
