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!!

From there to here

What?

What does the title mean? The usual comment that we hear, especially for men on the highway is asking someone how do I get from here to there? This is only after hours of driving around the country in a aimless way, while our wife tells us to stop and ask someone! lol been there done that!!

But this is something different. It is how something from far off, going to come to us? First off, we have alot of questions from this statement. Like, What is coming? From where?, When? How? and Who?

This is exactly what the christian should be focusing on in their studies and understanding of the Passages in Revelations 21-22. This is the picture that will be coming to us in a very methodical and perfect way. It is the economy(word used by Witness Lee for the ways of God) that will be brought to all his people of the world in the rule of God. This is word picture that we should see when we read the passages in Revelation. God has designed this way of eternity just as he did in the very beginning of time as the Garden of Eden scene we read with adam and eve.

What-God’s Kingdom

This is the fullness of God in everything.

If we ‘see’ that the revelation in revelation 21-22 is that of Genesis 1-2,then we must see the same eternal things in both of them. What then should we do then, is to look at Revelations and see what it actually says and portrays as ‘our’ eternal life.

Revelation 21. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among the people, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them,

Revelation 21. 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”

The What is God’s Kingdom, No death, no mourning,no crying or pain, nothing is left from the old world! This is all Great but it is the verse three that should make us shout for joy and excitement for things to come.

“Behold,the tabernacle of God is among the people, and He will dwell among them,and they shall be His people,and God will be among them”. Now this is Great, and our ultimate goal of eternal purpose. But, But notice something in this verse, notice on how it is said, notice it, because I believe that we have read it so fast, that we missed an important thing.

It’s backwards in how we have perceived it,It is as God is coming to us,not us coming to him. God tabernacling of God is among us,He will dwell(live) with us, God will be among us. Our perception on our desolate earth is for us to ‘Go'( Church)to Him, It is obvious that in the New Jerusalem that it actually says that there is not temple(this should be our first clue, that we are doing things wrong, we are to be striving for the end result of our destiny in God! We should be first realizing that it is God’s people in the world, not God’s people in the building, that people will ‘See’ Him!

It is the ‘What’ that I feel must happen first in the christian paradigm of the eternal purpose of God. This must be the first change in the paradigm of God’s people, it is the ‘seeing’ this that will make things change and change fast for the world and the christians!

God’s economy,or paradigm,New Jerusalem, or the Kingdom of God, whatever you want to call it, is coming into our man made world to save it, and bring into His own. This is the What. It is coming!

I will blog on the ‘How’ tomorrow.

Heaven

What is it?

Where is it?

Why is it?

Who made it?

When is it for?

Answer these questions, but do not rely on the things that a pastor,laymen, or parents have told you they were, but rely on yourself to search the scriptures for the answers. Do not just look at a verse as an answer, but let the answer be defined in the context that it is being used in, if it leads to a previous use in another context from someone else compare the two examples. Let the context and the allegory uses that they show you on the definition and use of the word  “Heaven”.

Now, compare the understanding of the word “Heaven”  that you already thought you knew, and the new definition of the word that you will see in its use now.

Hearing the use of a ‘definition’ or a concept in the bible over and over from someone, is not always to say that they are right in their knowledge in their use of the  concept. It is thru our studying the scriptures, with the foundation of the time period, the society at the time, the perceived reality of God,(gods) that should all come together to understand the concept of anything that we read in the bible.

It has been an injustice for us as christians to use the scriptures, and used it as a continuing concept in our time and place.

It was being used for the people of the time, separate people with different ideals, but with the touching of us thru history and God’s Eternal Purpose that it is meant for us now!

If we could only see it!

Idol-ling along…….

Old testament tells us what an idol is,what it is, who it is,where it is, and Why it is. Do we know the answers to these questions now?

Does the world know them? Do the ‘christians’ know the answers? Do we care to know them? Are they still relevant questions for today,or were they just for that time?

Ask yourself these questions to see what you answer. Are these questions relevant to you, a christian, and outsider?

Ponder these things and we will look into what IDOLS are all about and what they have to do with us in today’s world!
