“Your Kingdom come. Your will be done,On earth as it is in Heaven”

I wonder if maybe we have forgotten about this statement in the bible.

I think we have gotten all wrapped up in this ‘church’ thing that we have forgotten that God’s Kingdom is here now, and is coming to its fullness in the future.

I believe I know why Christ said what He said in His profound statement “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. Matt. 16:18

We have tried to move in on Him to do his work of his kingdom, When it is the King of the said Kingdom that builds the Kingdom. I have alot of issues with people in discussing this with the understanding of what this means.

A Proclamation, an announcement, a invitation, a phone call, an email, a letter, are ways that exactly the same as what the ‘Gospel’ is. It is a notice that something is new, different, or worth shouting about. The Gospel is proclaiming that God is King! God has stepped into his creation, in the middle of time, of man and his ways to say that “His Kingdom is starting”, it is building to a crescendo to make it full of Him.

We have missed out on what the scriptures are and were telling us as we read it the first time. I have told multiple people that I converse with that the bible is a narrative, a story that God is telling about his creation and his image in that creation. Read the scriptures from front to back, take your time and ‘eat it'(this is what is called eating ‘Christ’) chewing each thing 6 times(lol), it is a narrative, a story, to be told in this specific way so that we will know the character and mind of God and his purpose, his eternal purpose.

The story is NOT about a building(church) that we need to worry about, it is the mind and heart of all his images(his people) to be in Him and Him to be in Us. We are to be one. We are to be an Image of God.

God’s kingdom was in the first few pages in the bible. It is characterized in a more plain and bare example of what it was, but it was an illustration of what it is. We revolted. We wanted our own version of a kingdom. Let’s look back at history and see how that has worked out?! lol

God again gives his special images of God, Israel, as another example of ‘the Kingdom’ in the first of what we always think of a kingdom in our minds and our drawings. It is this that we need to keep in mind when we now continue reading the scriptures of the narrative for us to get the right picture. God is faithful. Yes, He is, He has created a ‘New Covenant'(Kingdom of God), and He is going to have it. He will build it, He will build with his son helping him. Jesus, Christ and Savior will be the catalyst for the dawn of the Kingdom.

Matt 6:10 “Your Kingdom Come, Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven”. This verse I could use as a major screw up in christian theology in it’s usage over the last 400 yrs. “Where did we see in this verse that we were going “To Heaven” at any time? This thought process has been used for the evangelical’s in their message with out any understanding of it!! I don’t understand it!!

But now that we know that the “Kingdom has started, and has started here on earth, and it will continue into it’s fruition. We can finally ‘see’ and ‘hear’ what the “Gospel” is and enjoy God’s Kingdom to its fullest!!

Praise God, Hallelujah, and Amen.

Perspective, it always helps.

I have said before in alot of my blogs, that we have to get back to the basics. Get back to context. But also we must get back to perspective in the minds of people, especially the ones in the early times of the Jews, and the old testament.

To many times we screw up in our process of thinking things thru of an argument or facts. One must always remember to ‘see’ the understanding of the people, era, social, events of time to have the right perspective.

Hear is such one, for you to just keep in your mind as you read scriptures in the bible to help you ‘see’ things clearly in their mind set into what they were using as a base of their logic. Keep this handy to go back and clarify something you have issues with. Do not use an illustration from any other time frame for biblical study. What ever you do, don’t use something from ‘today’s’ picture of the World.

The day after

I don’t know if I have ever hear any discussion about ‘the day after’ Adam and Eve chose the ‘tree of Knowledge of good and evil’.

What I would like to discuss is the ‘state of mind’ that God was in when this happened to his kingdom and to his people. Yes I know,we don’t or won’t ever know what that is, but we are going to just discuss the possibilities of it.

I believe we must start from the beginning of said story, even tho the event only happened in the third chapter of the story, we must go back to the first and second chapter to ‘see’ what God’s intention was and to ‘how’ he was trying to accomplish it.

God was a creator, a creator of beautiful and majestic things for the universe to shine in the eyes of the Lord. He created a world called earth, a earth that was designed for an image, an image of himself to represent the Holy one. Man was that image. Man was to be the crown jewel of his total creation. It was to be a narrative that was going to go on and on thru fruitfulness of man and creation. This was the blueprint.

Now, if this was the plan, and their was a hiccup in it, what was God’s thought when there was a speed bump in it? Just quit it? Try to get the plan back on track? Alter the storyline, take another tack? Or doesn’t even care anymore?

How we perceive ‘our’ God, is the answer to these questions.

IF you perceive your God as a Loving and caring God of his Creation in all forms. Then you must believe that your God is a Loving God. He is one that cares for His Creation and His intent. He is one that is not wavering or influenced in change. He is firm and stout in his creation and man. It was to be so, no matter what.

Where do we go from here, oh Christian?

Up til about fifteen years ago I was in the institutional church, I have since taken it myself to drown myself into the living word of God.

I would only recommend this for only the highly ‘Hang on the word of God’ people because if you are one of these people that are only a sunday sound bit people to ‘live’ your life on, it won’t work. I’m sorry.

My revelation came years ago, when I really started to research particular subjects that were brought up in discussions with christian friends. I would first come home and start looking thru bible references, scriptures, commentaries, video’s, audio’s, YouTube subjects video, christian news, secular news, sermons-ones that I didn’t agree with and some that I did, and finally books, alot of books. As you can tell I am exhaustive in my research, now if this isn’t a sign of deep passion for truth and God, I don’t know what is. I am continuing this after 15 yrs + and still as hungry for the ‘WORD’ as ever. Oh Yeah, did I tell you that I am a PK, a Preachers Kid! This means that I have heard 18 yrs of 52 weeks of sermon a year for 18 yrs before I left for college. This is also not including the revivals, conventions, and all the extra special meetings we had for special events. I have heard alot of ‘Christianity’.

My result of all this had led me to a ‘New Picture’ of the Gospel and what it means to Christianity. Now, most of my friends are within the institutional church and are coming from their individualistic theology of the denomination.Although I do have some outside of the church confines as ‘the same’ beliefs’. I am not a pushy ‘evangelist'( I hate even using that word), but I do state my beliefs. As friends we talk about different themes and stories in the bible and there meanings, we will disagree, we will agree on things but we at least know of another view point that is ‘out there’ for us, if we want to, go and research even more about it. You see it is the hungry ones that will do that exact thing. As I have done, I go straight home and start research it in multiple chapters in the bible, books, video,audio and anything else I can get my hands on.

But where does that even get me, or anyone else by doing this? Just think of it this way, ‘at least your not a bump on a log’ for God. Your that frog that is always hopping for God, here, there, everywhere!! LOL

There has to be a conclusion of a ending to the storyline, someplace. And to what end? We are given a clue. Guess what! Guess where it is? Your right, at the end of the storyline, of and by the writer of the story!! God has all the answers, and has all the ways in which we are to do them.

God has (as does my blog title says the answer) the “ETERNAL PURPOSE. LIFE!!

Now if you were a new christian or even a doubter of God, I would always tell you to start at the beginning of God’s story. Genesis 1-2. Then Stop. Take a week or even a month and just think about these two chapters and listen to what it says. Then when you realize that it is God telling you, and all of mankind that God is wanting you to have “LIFE” and to have it abundantly in His Name. Then you can go on and go slowly into the story that prevails in a human controlled world and see what happens to it, all thru today’s headlines.

When you get to the end of the bible, you will come to the last two chapters of the story. It will tell you how God will and has put it back to rights(this is the phraseology that a author of mine puts it, I think it is the best way to explain it.

God tells us and shows us the final picture of his story and how it is going to be. God, His people, His Kingdom.

and this is where we will end up!

Chaos, Light

The first two verses of Genesis are usually are just read over without any understanding of theologically ramifications. It seems that we only ‘see’ the first verse as ‘God created the heavens and the earth’. It is the second verse(which ironically a key to other theological issues down the road-#2) “The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.”

Let’s bring in verse 1, to see something else. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” God is a powerful God. God creates things. He creates things for His pleasure. His desire is to have fellowship with the trinity(Father,Son,Holy Spirit) but also of a creation that He is ‘well pleased’ in the making. This is evident in the making of the earth, in that in each step he took, God says that it was ‘good’. Everything that God made was ‘good’ in his eyes, this was his standard.

Now, let’s go back to verse 2 and continue the story and proclamations of it. The ‘earth was without form’, I don’t think anybody really knows what this looked like, but we know it didn’t look like anything we have now as what we see the earth from afar. But just to say it was without form, is to say it wasn’t organized or planned in any way. “The earth was without void”, it was ‘nothing’. Nothing to speak about.

And to add the last of verse 2 is “the darkness was upon the face of the deep”, so, just like the earth, the face of the deep was dark, or without ‘light’. Finally, ” and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters”. Now we must realize in this segment, the ‘waters’ of the earth had not been formed yet. This waters was the upcoming waters to be created. But let’s backup a minute, and look at this even more to what this is.

We all know that ‘hindsight is 20/20′, but in this case foresight is 20/20’, you see we have read the scriptures and know what has been said about various things of what things represent in God’s world and actions of Him or His Son. There is meaning to everything. “Water” is used in a few different ways. It is said to be “Bad”,”Evil”,”Dark” or it is also said to be “Good”,”Spiritual”,Or “Light”. In this instance it is an connotation that the ‘waters’ are ‘dark’, or evil. But it is in transition, because the Spirit of the Lord was moving over it give it the ‘Good’ or ‘Light’ quality that it needed coming from the darkness.

Our knowing when things are in the dark or in the light is a main concept of the Word of God. It is used in the old and the new testament. Another concept that is used throughout the bible is the one of ‘Life’ and ‘Death’, This is in conjunction with the darkness and light theme in the scriptures. As we can see just from these two examples the topics are opposites from each other. It is a either or picture. These are the themes that are re-occurring in the scriptures that are important for us to use in our overall emphasis of God’s desire of having The Kingdom of Heaven.

Is it just me, or…..

I’m a reader,I study, I research, I explore possibilities, I never leave a stone untouched.

I ask questions, I always ask “Why”, I will look at your side, I will look at mine too.

But I never quit for the knowledge of God.

This will be a rambling of things that have gone on in the world of Christianity and it’s process that is led us to today.

Let’s start with, way back in the olden’ days, I mean When it was Just God,Son, and the Holy Spirit. Now this ring of three circle we cannot enter into, for a variety of reasons, but we can just guess. Just by the outcome of their decisions. God,Jesus, Holy Spirit were a very tight and unique unit of Holiness. It was after all, The three of eternity and beyond.

God wanted to expand his influence and purpose by creating a Universe with an representative in it. It was to become an Temple to itself. It would have a paradise of a world with all the things to sustain it with a circle of life. It would have administrator for a continued success for eternity and beyond. It would be perfect.

This world would be different than the paradigm of God tho, it would have the tainted influence of Man in a human form with the flesh to struggle with. It was the paradigm of God that was different in that it was a realm of Holiness and Love. It is this realm that we must be mindful of in the story of mankind. Holiness is a strange reality when we are looking from the outside in. But God will soon show us a way into this reality.

Where I want to go now, from this foundation of the storyline is that the thing that we are confused on in the journey to get to this Holiness, is we are trying to achieve it thru human or fleshly actions. It doesn’t work, won’t work,never will,can’t be done. Did I say that there is no hope in fleshly ways?

God, in his Son, while walking on this earth was giving us a blueprint, tips, subtle hints, out of this world picture words, or even things that we would have to imagine in our minds to perceive his ways. But one thing should(but doesn’t) all these things are not of this world! They are all from the World of God. They are Holy. They are righteous. They are of Him.

God works thru His Heavenly Realm.

God lays it out there for us to ‘See’ in His Realm.

God thru all ‘time’ has used this method of transparency for ‘US’ to ‘See’ Him.

I am a firm believer that we must ‘see’ him starting with before time started. How can we do that you say? God has worked thru mysterious ways thru time.

If God is working thru mankind, he will use man to reach itself thru the outstretched hands of God.

This will be my initial point, God uses everything that He has touched or is going to touch to let us see Him. This is where I say that mankind or even just Christianity has failed in the obvious reality that God has laid things out for us to see and to understand God even better.

God has used history of man to be used in his quest for man to know Him, but also to live it, to be the example to the world. Man has written down the stories and visions of God thru his special people throughout time. It is for this reason we have not used everything to our advantage. I believe that we are on the cusp of really being able to ‘SEE’ God for who He really is, and especially who He is to US.

I am a Preachers Kid. I have been in this Paradigm for most of my life. I have been in the circle of multiple preachers thru the years of my fathers ministry, I have been in contact with alot of the preachers kids also to continue the story. It is when I was on the other side of ‘Ministry’ that it dawned on me that this ‘ministry’ didn’t have the whole story, it was telling a story that was not complete. If you know the background of Religion you know that it has had multiple divisions along the way for the sake of the ‘right one’ being pushed. But as you can tell, these are of the human interest way of telling things, not of God. They are all like this, no exceptions.

But where did it go wrong?

In my opinion, we didn’t look at the whole picture, the whole story!

It’s like we started our story of God, in the middle of God’s story.

alas, confusing!

God has given us some new and exciting things to see and read in the last 100 years with new and old things being found in the biblical world thru archaeology. By not using these things as apart of the blueprint of God’s road map to him, would make us go down the wrong path, as I fear it already has.

I am currently reading Josephus,Apocrypha, and the Pseudepigrapha, which I fear that our predecessors have not used in their material of the blueprint to God. I am amazed at the insight it could and will give us in our journey to ‘Know’ God. I pray that you will join me in ‘Knowing’ God by knowing His life in the History of mankind.

Happy Reading!

Revelation

or Prophecy. This book in the bible is a strange one, for sure. It is different from all the rest. It is picture into what God is thinking and his mission for his people. He explains it in different ways, that are unfamiliar to us to understand, or even just to read. But it is important for us to try.

I will continue to focus on the just the last part of the book, chapters 21-22. They are the most intriguing ones of the book and some say the whole entire bible. But we will persist in trying to ‘see’ what it says and means to all of God’s children.

We talked about the ‘What’ the other day of the particulars of God’s New Jerusalem, and its impact on us. What we will now talk about the ‘How’ the ‘What’ is to be implemented. Let’s remember that the picture that we see in Revelation 21, it is the ‘Coming of the Kingdom of God(Heaven), the ways or the economy of the righteous ones. It is a picture of a pure and blameless object, A Bride of God’s making. Let’s remember, that alot of this in Revelation is allegory in its content. It is based on something God has said,or done it the scriptures or of the things He said He was going to do in the future, all working to the glory of his name. The ‘What’ is God’s creation is coming back to the original design of God and man living together again in glory! This is the ‘saving’ action that God is taking to bring back his world.

It is the ‘How’ on this journey that we are concerned with now. If you have any of the old covenant and God’s people that was turmoil,wars,hating,mistrust,scandals, and many more things to distract God’s people from understanding of God’s Glory. It has not changed. We have still going thru these things and even more issues that have taken us down the wrong path to God’s Love for us. This is what have been dealing with for the last dozen of centuries to ‘see’ God’s road to the Kingdom of God.

What we have been doing for a long,long time is that we have very short sighted in the christian perspective. We need to look at the ‘How’ we are to be as the ‘community’ of God, and remember what God has told us that we are slaves to ourselves and of their authority over us! God designed us to be servants of Him, in that we are to be stewards of the world. If are alive and well today, all you have to do is look around the world and it is looking like a world wide rebellion against the ‘authorities ‘ of mankind. Government, of whatever form it takes in each nation, their is rebellion. Some would look at this and say that the world is in a mess for all these people to be misaligned with their governments over something as a virus, but lets think about the bigger picture of it.

One could say that the world is on the same page of sorts to be rebelling of their governments, but think of the consequences of this? They are in disagreement of the handling and implementation of a pandemic by vaccines. In another words it is the question of ‘who’ has AUTHORITY! This I believe is the beginning of the ‘New’ Paradigm of thinking for all mankind. Who does have all AUTHORITY?

God is in control! He is coming down to us, in His authoritative way of speaking to us, to bring ALL of us together. One mind, One Heart and One Spirit. God is working within us, to change us in our world, to the ways of His Kingdom.

God is bringing in his people together as one, one with the spirit of God, His Kingdom will be built in the blueprint of Genesis 1-2. God’s ‘saving’ formula is the one that brings in all of creation(remember that this is not just of mankind, but of everything that God created in the beginning. God’s world includes the universe,animals,the sea(evil),Temple(church),and the fact there will not be ‘night’ anymore, these will be all in the context of everything being ‘good’!

Amen and Amen Forever!!

Satan’s last stand

2 Thessalonians 2.1-10

God’s final victory is happening soon. Satan is putting forth his last surge on the people of the earth, to ward off his rival of God of Abraham.

*What I want to make clear, all tho this will make perfect sense for the people of the United States on what is going on in their country, it is not just there, but it is going on all over the world. Satan is making his move on all people to push his agenda on everyone he can, to further his cause.*

We must, people of the united states, christians especially to realize that God is refining us for the battle that is going on to sharpen us with fire to make us stronger and mighty to ‘see’ God’s eternal purpose for his people, his kingdom, and their God.

Christians are being torn this way and that way with idealistic ways of being ‘a christian’ in this world, but it just a facade of deceit to what a christian really is. God is causing the world to rebel against christianity to actually ‘show’ what God’s people are really about. We are people of God, because we are His children.

Christianity is in turmoil. We don’t know who we are. What we stand for. Where we are. or who is our leader.

If you are hurt by these comments, or don’t understand them, maybe you need to come out from the building you are in and just look at the world of christianity, and see for yourself. God’s community is not supposed to be like this. God’s people are so divided that they can’t even see it.

Let’s look at this in your light, Is this the way that God would like His community look like(in the whole world)? He is probably in complete disgust.

Studying multiple arena’s of religion the last twelve years or more, I have followed church’s in denominations, leaders of various institutions, social patterns of people, books of various authors(past and present), leaders of the worlds(past and present) to say that we have been going down the wrong path with our understanding of God and His purpose.

I have always used the analogy with people when I talk to people about the world of christianity and quote the church, that we don’t understand it right because we haven’t understood the ‘architect’s'(God) blueprint of His Kingdom.

God’s blueprint was in black and white in the first pages of the bible. Genesis 1,2. God made a World, He made us. He told us to be fruitful. He told us to take care of this world. God told us that He would be there also for our enjoyment! period.

Is it time?

Do we need to go back in time to see if there is anything that has or is tainting our belief’s? Are we on the right track, is christianity being authentic thru our journey of God’s design?

Pagan influence

God’s separate people,different,Holy,uninfluenced. Have we been changed into something that we were not designed to be, is it because of being conformed to our surroundings, our friends, our own ways,to pagan ideas? Is this what God said us to be?

We are to be different!

Let’s get to maybe a issue that maybe is affecting our path to God and his eternal purpose. Our pagan ways! I will tackle a big one first, then to some others.

This is, I believe is the most decisive and the most relevant one in the christian community that has steered us in the wrong direction. It is the ‘church building’!

To tackle this one, we must go back to the old testament and to see what the ‘building’ actually stood for. Who was it for, what to do there, and why.

I’m afraid that we actually have to go back to genesis 1 to get the whole picture, but this is good in a alot of ways. We might even see somethings that we have never seen before.

God designed the whole universe! Genesis chapter 1 God put all the participants in the picture of his creation. Exactly in the right place, at the right time, the right objects, the right people to portray his creation. It was perfect! It was actually God putting himself into his own creation, his desires, his wants, his world was surrounding himself with himself. This is key to the way that we understand God’s creation. He was designing his essence, his being into a outward brilliance of himself. After all, it was to be where he laid his head. (Mat 8.20) To walk among his creation(Gen 3.8)

So if we can see this actually in our mind of what was going on, we can see that God created a place for him and his creation to be, to walk, to sleep together in a world together.

Let me interject here that a fact needs major clarification to understand, this world was designed,made and designed for man(mankind), This fact is key to the scriptures in so many ways, using the hebrew language as who or what God’s ‘people’ were is in the understanding who ‘Adam’ was, Mankind. All of eternity of his kind, this was or never was supposed to individualize God’s creation.

Now, let’s fast forward to many years later after his creation has went a separate way from his creator, but the creator is still connected to the creation and cares for it, and that his desire is to be apart of him, but it won’t be in the same way as before, man has not the same love for it’s creator. So God has instituted his partial connection to man by although not fully as before, but in someway still connected to him he institutes a connection by creating a spot on his creation where God is still God of his creation, The Holy of Hollies. This place is just not anything or anywhere, it is special to his people. But it is with conditions, it will have to be with sacrifices to his people, it will be a ritually rough life of sacrificing to God for the life that they chose to go. It will be them coming to him in a remorseful way of knowing that they were wrong.

This is describing the Temple in Jerusalem. It was the ‘only place God was in all his creation’! Wow, how the storyline changed. From all of creation to just little room 20 cubits by 20 cubits by 20 cubits, a perfect cube. That’s not big at all! Where they went once a year.

This continues today with the jewish world today, the protestants have copied this scenerio for the most part by confining God to a building with a room that is usually bigger(some places believe bigger is better) It is where God is, he lives in there, this is when and where we feel him, see him, and hear him. This is the allusion that we see when compared to the days of the ages. We have and are not giving God Glory for bringing us back to his Glory of His Creation.

By God’s giving over his son Jesus the Messiah(Lord)(King) that he may be the example of the image of God that his creation was meant to be, he is now a NEW CREATION, not like the one before, a new,different one, a holy one, One that was created in the beginning to be God’s walking mate, talking mate, and living mate. just walking in a garden.

The Whole Creation

With our understanding of the saving grace of God for us, what we need to realize that ‘all’ creation will be saved by God,not just the human creations. God’s creation of the universe, earth, the land,the animals, and the people will ‘all be saved’, so why is the focus on the just the people?

If we are to be ‘saved’, should we not just act like we are saved and to Love our neighbor, ourselves and the Lord, so as to bring about the saving grace to all of ‘God’s creations’?!

This should re-evaluate what our, I mean, what we think our intention is in being God’s creation as His sole need for His Eternal Purpose. God needs his Kingdom,People, and his Land. Garden of Eden -the sequel.
