  • The Kingdoms of Our Lord

    07/13/2016 7:17:40 AM PDT · by RevelationDavid
    July 13 **The Kingdoms of Our Lord** “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” REVELATION 11:15 God WILL establish an Irresistible Kingdom on the earth. This Kingdom does not rise up from the earth, but it comes down from heaven. This Kingdom will break to pieces and consume all the other kingdoms. And this Kingdom will increase from a single Stone into a great mountain that fills the entire earth (Daniel 2:35). It is an Irresistible Kingdom! Not only can this Kingdom not be...

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is already looking ahead to forming his top White House team and is considering one of his sons as the head of the Interior Department. In an interview with Petersen's Hunting, he offered both his sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, as the cabinet secretary because they are hunters and anglers and members of key conservation and Second Amendment groups. In the interview with editor Mike Schoby, Trump said that "ideally" he wants an outdoorsman to run the agency that manages federal land. "Ideally yes, they'd be better at it," said Trump. In the interview with...
  • Saudi Arabia: A Weak Kingdom On Its Knees?

    The great Kingdom of Saudi Arabia—the long-time dictator of crude oil prices for the world—is struggling on all fronts. The Saudis are losing their proxy wars in both Syria and Yemen; their OPEC leadership is under threat; they are not winning the crude oil price war; and its long-running alliance with the West is in question. From Saudi Arabia’s perspective, Iran seems to be gaining ground everywhere. Saudi Arabia has several weaknesses that help explain the current anxiety emanating from Riyadh. 1. Saudi Arabia losing its leadership in the OPEC Saudi Arabia has been the default leader of OPEC; however,...

    Former President Bill Clinton has issued a statement urging Scots to reject the upcoming independence referendum. In a statement released through the pro-unity Better Together campaign, the 42nd president said Scots could send “a powerful message of both identity and inclusion” by voting to stay within the United Kingdom.

    Spirit and Truth ^ | N/A | Andy Woods
    The contemporary evangelical world is engulfed in the idea that the church is presently experiencing the messianic kingdom. The idea of the "kingdom" can be bewildering, especially considering how this term is loosely bandied about by today's evangelicals. Many ministries convey the notion that the kingdom is strictly a spiritual and present reality by indicating that they are "expanding the kingdom" through their evangelistic and missionary endeavors. Even Christian political activists sometimes argue that they are "bringing in the kingdom." ... when rightly understood, the "Disciples' Prayer" consists of three requests for the kingdom to come and three additional requests...

    Another Friday, another violation of American freedoms and rights. This one is personal. Today, ICANN and the US government announced their intention to relinquish control of the Internet to the UN by 2015. Where’s Congress? Where’s the outrage that should be thunderous over this travesty? From WaPo: U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web. Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of...

    While it is true that the millennium (that is, one thousand years) is found only in Revelation 20, the belief in the Messianic Kingdom does not rest on this passage alone. In fact, it hardly rests on it at all. The basis for the belief in the Messianic Kingdom is twofold. First: there are the unfulfilled promises of the Jewish covenants, promises that can only be fulfilled in a Messianic Kingdom. Second: there are the unfulfilled prophecies of the Jewish prophets. There are numerous prophecies of the Old Testament that speak of the coming of the Messiah Who will reign...

    When I was a child in elementary school, people often asked me, “What is your favorite subject?” Invariably my response was one of two things. I either said, “recess” or “gym.” My answer revealed my deepest predilections. I preferred play to work. Indeed, my nascent philosophical musing regarding the cosmic “Why?” questions took place as I made a game of walking to school via tiptoeing along a long path, pretending I was a high-wire walker in a circus. I asked myself the meaning of life wherein I had to spend five days a week doing what I didn’t want to...

    Just Genesis ^ | April 21, 2013 | Alice C. Linsley
    To understand Abraham's call it is helpful to investigate the circumstances at the time of his father's death in Haran. Knowledge of the Horite marriage and ascendancy pattern proves especially helpful. As with all the Horite rulers, Terah had two wives. They resided in separate settlements on a north-south axis. One lived in Ur and the other in Haran. Terah traveled between his wives, a distance of at least 730 miles. Likewise, Abraham's territory extended between Hebron, where Sarah resided, and Beersheba, where Keturah resided. The Horites were ruler-priests who maintained water shrines. Abraham's father was such a ruler. His...

    AT A NATIONAL MEETING of youth ministers, the key role of the local church is emphasized. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Love Jesus. Tolerate the church. At a time when Americans’ confidence in organized religion has hit a 40-year low, that mindset seems particularly prevalent among younger Christians. At the recent National Conference on Youth Ministries, Scot McKnight — one of the keynote speakers — challenged what he described as the modern tendency to lift up social justice efforts as “kingdom work.” “It’s like a tsunami, beginning to overtake the church, and the church is losing significance in local communities because...
  • Praying for Good Government

    08/25/2011 8:34:38 AM PDT · by count-your-change · 2 replies
    Knowing that the government or kingdom of God that Jesus taught us to pray for (Matt. 6:10) is a very real and actual rule by Christ as its King we can examine the Scriptures to see what conditions will be under that rule. While preaching about the coming of this kingdom Jesus showed, albeit in a limited way, that no one would want for food. The Good News of the Kingdom would not include stories of hungry orphans and families begging for enough food to ease the pangs of starvation. When some 5000 men plus families were gathered to hear...

    Today as the news is dominated by economic troubles and which politician or party is responsible and relatedly, the military force being used to remove rulers overseas, Christians look for real leadership of a righteous government. They have at hand the outlines of that government. Dan. 2:44 makes clear God's plan to set up such a government, not in competition with any other, but by removing them. "And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to...

    We are discussing Rev. 20 in my Sunday school class. One of my students challenged me to show her a verse that says that Jesus will literally rule from Jerusalem during the Millennium. I don't think there's such a verse, that it is more like something you can deduce from some Old Testament prophecy. For example, Messiah will be on David's throne and where else but Jerusalem could David's throne be found? Anyhow, if anybody has some good verses that I can use, I will love to hear from y'all. Thanks.

    There may have been no rioting in the Highlands, but no one has been watching the arson and looting of Britain’s cities more closely than the Queen. With fewer than six months to her Diamond Jubilee, when celebrations are planned for the length and breadth of the kingdom, the disorder has alarmed aides planning the extravaganza. Central to their concern is not just the damage to the country’s image overseas, but also how quickly the feelgood factor engendered by April’s Royal Wedding has been lost. From her summer home in Balmoral, the Queen has kept in touch with developments and...

    Stop Obama Now!! - San Diego ^ | 8/9/2011 | roger-sd
    In October of 2007, Obama declared at a Apostolic Church in Greenville, South Carolina that he would create a millennial kingdom of God on earth. The church is Redemption World Outreach Center and is reported to be a part of the Pentecostal Holiness movement, according to some websites. Some Pentecostals believe that the kingdom will be a real physical kingdom, a theocracy ruled by men, and this appears to be such a sect. The doctrine that the millennial kingdom will be a man-made physical kingdom on earth created by political or military means is called Dominion Theology. The doctrine of...
  • Good News for an Evildoer

    For the criminal hanging beside Christ the "good news" was good indeed, that he would be resurrected Christ 'came into his kingdom'. (Luke 23:42) Until that resurrection of both the "righteous and righteous" occurred under Christ's kingly rule that evildoer would have to wait in what Christ compared to "sleep" in the grave, Hades or as many translations say, "hell". (Acts 24:15)(John 11:11-14) As we hear of the horrible loss of life in Japan and similar events we can be comforted by that Good News spoken to a criminal so long ago, that they would be resurrected under Christ's Kingdom...

    Anyone following the threads on the religious forum could hardly not notice the endless arguments over what constitutes personal salvation, who is the most Christian and the general low level of discourse. Instead Christ's apostle, Paul counceled, "Let your utterance always be gracious, seasoned with salt.." (Col. 4:6) In short, tasty, not dripping with acid. As Jesus gave instructions on how to pray in Mattew 6:9-13 the establishment of the kingdom took priority over anyone's personal savation and it was this that was called "Good News" when Jesus said the 'good news' (or gospel) would be preached in all the...

    The Witness ^ | 1977 | Curtis Dickinson
    If the search for omens and signs of the future were any indication of true faith, ours would be the most Christian generation of all history. But Jesus said, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign” (Mt. 16:4). The popular doctrine of a “future millennial reign” over the present world affords endless opportunities to take daily events and label them as signs of millennial fulfillment. Satiated with sensational international crisis, the public eagerly clutches at every announcement in hopes that this it is!—that this latest event will herald a new day and tend the tension, the frustration, the...
