Understanding the Spiritual Kingdom of God

“And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of should come, He answered them and said, ‘The kingdom of God cometh not with observation (outward show, margin): neither shall they say, ‘Lo here! or lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Luke 17: 20, 21, KJV, Authorized Version

According to the Bible a king is: “A male sovereign in whom is invested supreme authority over a tribe or nation. Generally, rule is for life and succession is on a hereditary basis. That over which he rules is called a kingdom.

“The kings of ancient heathen nations were often considered as deities or direct descendants of a deity. [The Egyptian kings, known as pharaohs, were worshipped as deities in the first atheistic world empire, ancient Egypt].

Uncontrollable Forces Waiting

‘Uncontrollable Forces Waiting’

The nation and the whole world is ‘testing the waters.’ In fits and starts, afflicted, inflicted and conflicted America, sharing the same lot with the rest of the edgy, wary and weary world is “testing the waters” to see how quickly and widely it can “open up” and rescue its rapidly-sinking economy—the other pecuniary half of the health pandemic, — without prematurely reactivating a more devastating “second wave” by this fall, as feared by the health scientists.

With sustained physical (more practical than “social”) distancing, using masks (which unsurprisingly has been turned into a “novel” fashion item, or weaponized as political statement), and other aggressive yet so common-sense sanitary and cleansing protocols to mitigate the pandemic, the much-sought after covid-19 test and contact-tracing novel mechanism, is to reveal and hopefully contain and control the spread of infection of this no-longer novel virus, until either a super vaccine, “herd immunity” is acquired on a national scale or a highly improbable permanent “cure” is found.

ARE WE GOD’S ALERT AND COURAGEOUS WATCHMEN AND SOLDIERS?

April 2, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

ARE WE GOD’S ALERT AND COURAGEOUS WATCHMEN AND SOLDIERS? 

“Son of man, I have made you watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and given them warning from Me.” Eze. 3:17, 18-21; cf. 33:1-20. The gospel-prophet declares of the unfaithful “watchmen.”: “His watchmen are blind, they are all ignorant; they are all dumb dogs that will not bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yes, they are greedy dogs which never have enough. And they are SHEPHERDS who cannot understand; they all look their own way, everyone for his own gain, from his own territory.” Isa. 56:10,11,NKJV.  

These no doubt refers to the “prosperity gospel” minister/pastors who are nowhere to be found with their “prosperity” during this terrible time of adversity. I fear for my soul and yours too, if I fail or refuse, for whatever reason or excuse, to hold back the testing truths and warnings for this very time! And so here are more of God’s warnings, not to cause more fear or discouragement but to encourage and challenge all to put on the whole armor of God and be ready “to fight the battles of the Lord where champions are few.”

WALKING IN THE LIGHT BRINGS COURAGE

March 25 2020
MESSAGE FOR THE DAY:


WALKING IN THE LIGHT BRINGS COURAGE.

Good morning Daniels and Daniellas, servants of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you last night from the lions crowned as a terrible virus? (Dan.6:20). If we have been faithfully walking in the light of all the truths we have been learning, our joint answer should be just like faithful Daniel recorded in verses 21, 22.

DON’T REPEAT THE HISTORY OF THE CHOSEN PEOPLE!

March 11, 2020

MID-WEEK MESSAGE FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

DON’T REPEAT THE HISTORY OF THE CHOSEN PEOPLE!

See Acts 17: 11 and be a Berean.  “In this our day as in Christ’s day, there will be a misreading and misinterpreting of the Scriptures. If the Jews had studied the Scriptures with earnest, prayerful hearts, their searching would have been rewarded with a true knowledge of the time, and not only the time, but also the manner of Christ’s FIRST appearing. . . .

They had the testimony of Daniel: they had the testimony of Isaiah and other prophets; they had the teaching of Moses; and here was Christ Himself in their midst, and STILL were searching the Scriptures for evidence in regard to His coming!  MANY are doing the same thing today because they have not experienced the TESTING message comprehended in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd angels’ messages.

HOW DANIEL OVERCAME AND WAS BLESSED WITH WISDOM

December 16, 2019

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

HOW DANIEL OVERCAME AND WAS BLESSED WITH WISDOM.

“When Daniel was in Babylon, he was beset with temptation of which we never dreamed, and he realized he must keep his body under. He purposed (chose, decided, committed, willed) in his heart that he would not drink if the king’s wine or eat of his dainties. (Dan. 1:8).

He knew that in order to come off a victor, he must have clear mental PERCEPTIONS, that he might DISCERN between right and wrong. While he was working on his part, God worked also, and gave him ‘knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.” Dan. 17.

God’s Prophets Demystify His Mysteries at their Appointed Time but Especially Today 

“Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3: 7, N.K.J.V.

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed belong to us and our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deut. 29: 29. “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Prov. 29: 18, K.J.V. The NKJV reads: “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint.”

The ‘Woe’ Side of the Seventh Trumpet

Quotable Quote

“The Word is a power, a sword, in the hands of the human agent, but the Holy Spirit, in its vital power, is the efficiency to impress the mind.”

 E.G. White, Sons & Daughters, p. 30.

The ‘Woe’ Side of the Seventh Trumpet

If you have been lackadaisically lumbering along on the treadmill of prophetic mediocrity, self-assured, Laodicean-like, that you are already settled and nestled in a safe space, just awaiting the amazing that will happen when Christ returns “any minute now,” please be warned: Though appearing to be a good read from many a religious literature, and easy listening sounds emanating from many pulpits in Christendom, this, in fact, is anything but the sure thing.
