HIS KINGDOM PURPOSE

When He came on the Day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit signified that Christ had been glorified in heaven (John 7'39) as well as filling the Disciples. 

Christ's glorification marked the acceptance of the work He had been sent to do. It was then He and the Father could send the Holy Spirit to His People.

In addition, God intended to make known His eternal purpose:

"... to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by Christ's Called-Out Ones to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places,

according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord," Ephesians 3'10-12.

Note: With this in mind Believers can understand why Jesus rejected Satan's offer of "all the kingdoms of the world" and their glory (Luke 4'4-7). The Lord would take them all in time.

::

Through the Holy Spirit Christ lives in every one of His Called-Out People and He is "the wisdom of God" and He became the "wisdom from God" for them.

1 Corinthians 1'30 says:

"... of God you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God ...". That's why the enemy resists the building up of the Body of Christ, but "... the gates of hell shall not prevail against it". Hallelujah!

::

"... this Good News of the Kingdom

will be preached in all the world

as a witness to all the nations,

and then the end will come,"

Matthew 24'14.

Α-Ω

Prayer. Thank you, Father for the Good News of your Kingdom and the privilege of being able to see it, enter it and live in it continually receiving it.

Thank you, too, for providing the Holy Spirit's power for serving Christ with Kingdom acts of righteousness with peace and joy.

In Jesus' name. Amen.

The Kingdom of God Today - 2

Α-Ω

Jesus said,

"This Good News of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world

as a witness to all the nations,

and then the end will come,"

Matthew 24'14.

Α-Ω 

As referred to at the beginning of part 1 of this message, the Lord speaks of "this Good News of the Kingdom". It is the Kingdom Good News He began preaching right from the start of His earthly ministry.

It is not surprising, then, that Jesus Himself, His People and His Good News of the Kingdom have been the focus of the enemy's attacks ever since the Day of Pentecost.

Satan has and does  attack, tries to deceive Believers and twists the Kingdom message at every opportunity. He will attempt to misrepresent Kingdom Believers to anyone who will listen  as being dishonourable.

In Roman-occupied Thessalonica the accusers claimed that the Believers were dishonouring, even disobeying, the ruler of the land saying that they were:

"... all acting contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying there is another king - Jesus".

Accusations against God's Kingdom people are likely to include anything!
