These were the words that God gave to Abraham in his New Promise.
God’s ultimate goal for mankind was three fold from the very beginning of creation.
First, It was to be their God.
Second, To have all of creation as His people.
And Thirdly, To have His Kingdom in all of His Creation.
This was, and still is the blueprint of the architect, or the creator of the world. God’s design of His Eternal Purpose was to be fulfilled it must be shown in all of creation. Every part of the earth must be filled with his glory. In Isaiah 6.3 it says exactly that- “And one called out to another and said,”Holy,Holy,Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory”. This was God’s intention, it would be fulfilled.
These three things work in unison to achieve the ultimate goal of God, in that they are intertwined with each other to work out God’s Glory. God,Kingdom,Land. All three are as important to each other as the next one. I believe, that they will come together as one, one moment in time for the ‘shock and awe’ that God wants to show his glory to the world.
I want to focus on the Land part for just a minute and expand on it and with explanation. “In the beginning”, was the original start of God’s world, it was being spoke into existence with God’s voice, it was not to be changed,ever. It was the blueprint. Mankind did not comply with its original plan, but it is still in existence today. Garden of Eden was God’s Kingdom, it was also man’s domain mingling with God. It was perfect. It was God’s Kingdom, it was being shared with man, his creation. This was God’s desire.
To see a more illustrative ‘picture’ of what this was in Genesis, let me highly recommend a biblical company called “Bible Project” by Tim Mackie and Jon Collins. You can find them on YouTube and also on their web site called Bibleproject.com. Check them all out for sure, but check out this specific one for now to see an illustration of this concept-“Heaven and Earth”. Enjoy!
Now, back from our commercial! LOL God’s Land is all the Earth. Now, How this is being achieved is key to how this is implemented. The problem that has risen from this is that we ‘all’ seem to see it in the ‘old testament’ eyes of God’s institutional ways, that was only supposed to be an temporary covenant until the one to take it’s place was ready. Hebrews 8.13 says When He said, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. This ‘New Covenant’ which is to be now in effect, means that the old is not in affect. All of it, all aspects of it. The Covenant in detail was for the Jewish Nation, This was now, not just for them, but for everyone. The old covenant was ‘marked’ by the Jewish men being circumcised, the ‘new marker’ for the new covenant was the ‘indwelling of Christ’ in His people. The food laws of the old covenant were specific, in the new covenant there was not any limitations on what to it, but this was allegorically being understood as something even bigger than this, as said to Peter and his vision. All of mankind was included in the ‘eating of food’ together in Christ’s name! God’s New Covenant was New and different, it was to be not anything like the old. Nothing.
God was no longer only in the ‘Temple’ and only one person in contact with him, the ‘High Priest’, the veil was torn down by God for ‘All’ to have Contact with him. This was the beginning of a New Heaven and a New Earth. God and Man together again! In union with their God,the people, in their Land. All of it.
I hope your eyes have been opened to the truth of God’s word and desire for all his people! I pray that you have, and spread the News!!
