“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.

New Creation(John)

John’s first line is the same as the first line in the old testament book of Genesis. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” 2. He was in the beginning with God. 3. all things were made through him,and without him was not anything made that was made. 4. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

There is some powerful stuff in those first 5 lines in John. There is also alot of things to work thru in those first 5 verses. Let’s start with verse one, It tells us two things in this short but powerful, telling of words. First, It tells us that the Trinity has been around forever, The Father, Son(Jesus), and the Holy Spirit have been hovering around everything before time started, but mainly the story of Creation that God tells us that His Son, was there too. He is the “Word”. This knowledge that God’s son was there all the time, could be very mind blowing if we would just sit and think about it for awhile. This also tells me that the trinity was together ‘in the beginning’! Kaboom! WOW!

The second thing that the first verse tells us, is that although this sounds alot like Genesis 1, which it is, it is actually telling us that it is a little different. Now, to know this, one would have to know or read the whole old testament, or have been told it by someone. The journey of man has taken alot of bad turns over the centuries, including still in our lifetime. We have turned our back on him in every part of our lives, because ‘we know’ what is good for us. LOL It has been like this because man chose what was behind door #2, which was the ‘knowledge of good and evil’. This has the makings of alot of bad in our future, as we all know.

Verse three reaffirms us that God and the Messiah and the Holy Spirit were always there, and everything was made through them. God was/is the author and designer of everything good. Just like the first six days of creation everything made by God was perfectly good. Not a blemish in anything. White as snow. Holy and blameless. It was Godly and Holy.

Now, verse four is unique, it tells us that this is the ‘New Creation’, and not of the first creation. Let’s look at the verse again to see what it says-“In him was life, and the life was the light of men”. The first part of the verse saying that ‘In him was life’ can only be construed as being after Christ had died and arose again on the third day, by his proclaiming that ‘Christ was the Life, and He gave it back in abundance’. There was ‘no life in the first covenant, with the law, that did not create salvation to the people. but the second but New Creation did!

The second part of verse four is one of great joy and hope for all who seek him. It says “and the life was the light of men”, this is telling us that man is filled with his glory and shekinah, the light of God, even as the light as God produced on the first day! It is God, and He is filled in us, and Us in Him! Hallelujah, and Amen!! God is Great!

This is the eternal purpose of God to have a creation and for it to cry “Holy, Holy what a mighty God we serve”!

Verse five is even more exciting to find out, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” This again is pointing to the ‘New Creation’, when it proclaims that the ‘Light has shown on everything and it is not dark anywhere, the Light is everywhere! No more darkness to find! God is everywhere His creation is back to reality, and no more evil, earthly turmoil, or mankind’s knowledge of good or evil!

Praise God for just these first five verses in John! We will stop here for now and continue on in John soon.
