THE PROMISED LAND/THE KINGDOM OF GOD
The lesson of the Old Covenant is;
Any territory taken by force must be maintained by force.
And/or; any lifestyle changes made by willpower must be maintained by willpower.
Examples;
• Jerusalem to this day.
• Or righteousness by works.
Oswald Chambers said;
“A Kingdom not maintained by might is inconceivable to us.”
Inconceivable, Yes, but the only way it can be.
The Kingdom of God must eventually be established without force.
If people have to die at the second coming of Christ then that is still only a temporary solution.
Earth would be like heaven after Satan and his army left.
People may be dead or gone, but their spirit of dissent would still linger on.
The Great Controversy can never be over until there is complete unity of spirit.
Until Jesus’ prayer has been fully answered.
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” (John 17:21)
Until everyone voluntarily bows and confesses that Jesus is LORD.
Then God’s Kingdom will be established; a Kingdom that will never have to be maintained by might.
Happily ever after – – – – – – –
P.s.
The wicked may join the Kingdom, or pray (volunteer) for their extermination.
Revelation 6:15-16, And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
(Either way, there is no fight left in them.)

FORGIVENESS

Published Post author

Much has been said about the word ‘forgiveness,’ so my plan is to share only what I have to say that I haven’t heard being said before.

God is the Source of all good things, (James 1:17) so I picture this as, ‘God’s River of Give-ness.’

Picture yourself as a part of the huge river flowing from the Source of all Goodness; you would naturally be overflowing with what is called ‘The Living Water,’ the good gifts of God; Love, Joy, peace, etc.

When all is well in the universe, ever person is filled to overflowing, receiving, and then passing on God’s give-ness/love/goodness to others.

But then something happens; someone really pisses you off, perhaps for the five hundredth time, and you say, “Now you’ve done it, that’s it, I’ve had it with you!”

At that point you have held a silent trial in your head, condemned them, and pronounced them guilty, in their case you have nothing more to give.

In my words, as far as they are concerned, you have closed the locks of the river of give-ness.

I believe all of this must happen before you can truly say the words, “I forgive you,” because I picture for-give-ness as a re-opening of the locks of the river of give-ness, to the guilty party.

I wrote a book titled, “Condemned?” in which I say God never condemns us in the first place, and there is never even a hiccup in His river of Give-ness, so therefore the word ‘forgiveness,’ is more our word than His. Jesus will say, “I forgive you,” if we need to hear it, but He has never condemned any of His children in the first place.

I also say love and forgiveness can never be separated, that they are two sides of the same coin, if you run out of forgiveness, you have reached the perimeter of your love, and there is no perimeter to God’s Love/Forgiveness, because it is infinite.
