what do you think of about the kingdom of God and your part in it?
THE KINGDOM OF GOD SEEN FROM THE EYES OF A BELIEVER
by Chaplain Jimmie Warren
You know or have heard our quote "TODAY YOU ARE ONE DAY CLOSER TO THE KINGDOM" These words came to me one day in prayer a few years ago and I like using it because we are closer to the kingdom of God everyday as we grow older. You see one day each and everyone of us are going to die, then what happens? Many people ask themselves this and wonder what is on the other side of life? Some believe nothing is there but the worms that eat the body? Some think we will go off to some other life here on earth as a cow or a fly or even some flower or tree, they just do not know?
I am going to attempt to show you using the Bible as a guide to make you think and ponder about where your going to wined up one day. I will be giving you many scriptures to read yourself as we study what happens after death? I also want to explain the different offices and rewards we will have in Gods kingdom. I will also approach the subject about the " second resurrection, also called the second Death" found in the pages of your own Bibles.
" I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.(The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection.Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years" (REV 20:1-3)
You see these two subjects are crucial to show people about the different levels in Gods Kingdom. "Some to ever-lasting Glory and some to ever last shame." (Revelation 20:14) Which one will you be in? Have you even heard about the Government of God and His everlasting Kingdom being right here on this earth, not floating in the sky like some churches teach? The subject of what is the kingdom of God is, where is it going to be, and what part are we all going to play in it?
These are the main questions I hope to show you in this article. Every article I write is given me by the Holy Spirit ,for I am not a writer, no I am just a sinner who God called! The Lord Yeshua called me and is using me to reach out to others asking these same questions because their church are not giveing them answers? Most CHURCHES preach handed down schooled training of Heaven and Hell and do not even teach the Kingdom here on earth? l try to get people away from the early Catholic churches teaching, and all its Dogma which is in error.Most all Prodisons churches got their teaching one way or another from these wrong teachings thousands of years ago and in ciminary schools still preach.
See article (HELL: SATAN'S BIGGEST LIE)
"Then the Devil, who betrayed them, was thrown into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur, joining the beast and the false prophet. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and I saw the one who was sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they found no place to hide. I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God's throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to the things written in the books, according to what they had done. The sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the grave gave up the dead in them. They were all judged according to their deeds. And death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death—the lake of fire. And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire." (Rev 20:10-15)
"But cowards who turn away from me, and unbelievers, and the corrupt, and murderers, and the immoral, and those who practice witchcraft, and idol worshipers, and all liars their doom is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. THIS is the second death spoken of in the Book of Revaluation ."(Rev.21:8)
The subject of the Heavenly Kingdom of God Has been pictured by many artist who have paintings of little angles flying around with harps on soft white clouds, or of bigger angles, who are war looking Angles used by God to fight over and protect His throng? What does God need protection from? Anyway Angles are another subject? Look and study the book of Ezekiel to learn more about angles and what they are and what they do.
Most Churches do not preach about the Kingdom of God and His government. They only teach what they learn from their religious schools of thought from their denominational churches and doctrines made by men.
The Kingdom of God is the Good News Jesus Taught and is the secret Paul taught as the great commission to the churches of Asia! Read this article What is the Kingdom? By J.P.GERKE Minister of All Saved! We will look at that commission and the millennium or the 1000 years of Christ rule here on earth which is called the Kingdom Of God . Then the event about the Father Almighty God coming to earth with His Holy city of Jerusalem to rein forever with man talk about in the 21st and 22nd chapters in the book of Revelation.
"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." (Rev.21: 1-6)
Jesus Christ Taught about his Father’s kingdom coming to earth and those who are with him will be called as priest and judges and even kings to serve God. HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS? See my article Revised: The Gospel of Jesus is The Good News about The Kingdom on Earth."
"Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ, ' and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. "So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination that causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel--let the reader understand-- then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the roof of his house go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now--and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. For false Christ and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time."(MATTHEW 24:4-25)
The Bible does promise in many passages, that rewards and punishments after this physical death, are real and to be taken seriously by those of us who believe what the Bible says and is in Both the Old and New Testaments. The Bible also talks about a fire that burns forever but, does not talk about people burning forever. See Most Church Traditions, teach that life of the individual human continues after death in some form or other, and that in the life to come, justice will be served good and bad.(Gal. 6:7-8; Rev. 20:12). The law of good and evil necessitates that there be moral actions for what a person does in this life (1 Cor. 15:19,32). The afterlife will be "heavenly" or "hellish" for a particular individuals depending on how they lived their life on earth is done (Mat. 18:34-35, Luke 6:37).
John the Baptist warned the Pharisees that they would be burned up as chaff if they didn’t repent and change their ways. They shall perish and not be anymore."Into smoke shall they consume away." But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: and think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees(men): therefore every tree(man) which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.( Matthew 3:4-12)
In Context | of the Original Hebrew] "But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away." ( Psalms 37:20)
"For behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yes and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of host, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. And you shall tread down this wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this." (Malachi 4:1-3) notice: not burn forever as taught by most churches today and for hundreds of years of wrongly teachings all of us just to keep us in fear.
This is talking about the end time my dear loved ones so please, Get out your own Bible out and read these scriptures yourself. Don’t just take what you have heard all your life for granted. This is too important a matter to stuff off. (Psalm 37:20) "Into smoke shall they consume away." They shall perish and be no more.
"Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn." (Matthew 13:30)
The wages of sin is death, not endless torment as most preachers teach, again from old teaching from schools of churches who apparently do not check to see what the Bible says about the second death?.( Romans 6:23.)
Read it for yourself it is right there in your own Bible, I didn’t put it there, God did! Eternal-burning hell and torture of Dante’s fabled hell is unreal and untrue. HELL IS THE BIGGEST LIE EVER PUT ON MAN!
Jesus illustrates death and a resurrection from the dead and restoration of consciousness. Finally, the second death is in the lake of fire that burns forever where both body and soul are burned up. Read (Matthew 10:28) "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell ". "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire." And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.".This is the second death spoken of in (Revelation 20:14)
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26)
Now Note here : NONE of these words -meanings are from the literal translations "A burning fire for humans ".Now before you decide to quit here, please see what the three totally different meanings of the English word "hell really meant". You see all three are translated into the King James Bible and Catholic translations of the Bible. Below are the three real words in the Bible and what they meant before King James had them changed to the English word' HELL":
1.)--(tartaros) which refers only to the present condition of darkness, or perversion, and restraint, of fallen angels, or demons. " For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but cast them into " hell " and committed them to pits of nether gloom to be kept until the judgment;" ( 2 Peter:2:4) Youngs Comentaiary Translation renders this way " For if God messengers who sinned did not spare, but with chains of thick gloom, having cast [them] down to Tartarus, did deliver [them] to judgment, having been reserved, until the judgment.
2.)--(Gehenna) which is a place at the bottom of a high ledge at the south end of Jerusalem, where trash, refuse, bodies of dead animals, and the bodies of the worst criminals were dumped over this ledge to be burned up. Down below this dump, fires were kept burning day and night to consume all things until they were turned into ashes or gone. (Originally Ge bene Hinnom; i.e., "the valley of the sons of Hinnom"), a deep, narrow glen to the south of Jerusalem, where the idolatrous Jews offered their children in sacrifice to Molech (2 Chronicles 28:3; 33:6; Jeremiah 7:31; 19:2-6). This valley afterwards became the common receptacle for all the refuse of the city. Here the dead bodies of animals and of criminals, and all kinds of filth, were cast and consumed by fire kept always burning. It thus in process of time became the image of the place of everlasting destruction. In this sense it is used by our Lord in (Matthew 5:22,29,30; 10:28; 18:9; 23:15,33; Mark 9:43,45,47; Luke 12:5.) In these passages, and also in (James 3:6), the word is uniformly rendered "hell," the Revised Version placing "Gehenna" in the margin. (See HELL; HINNOM .)
3.)--(Hades) means the grave or a hole in the ground-- it is a place of burial under the ground! This is the most common Greek word used today. When the King James translation of the Bible was made, the Englishmen spoke commonly of "putting their potatoes in hell for winter keeping." These farmers put their potatoes into the ground to last for eating until spring. This is the "hell" Jesus was buried in. His soul was not left in the grave, or tomb, from which He was resurrected! This" Hades" was also the "hell" in which the rich man was buried! See then Read chapter 16 of the book of Luke.
Many preachers use this one parable to teach that we are all going to hell to be burned forever and ever, JUST ONE SCRIPTURE!
NO WHERE in the entire Bible does JESUS CHRIST say that" people will burn in hell forever and ever. Read it in your own Bibleto prove all things . Look for it; you will not find going to a hell where you burn forever and ever. This term "HADES" is of comparatively rare occurrence in the Greek New Testament. Our Lord speaks of Capernaum as being "brought down to hell" (Hades), i.e., simply to the lowest debasement, (Matthew 11:23). It is contemplated as a kind of kingdom which could never overturn the foundation of Christ's kingdom (16:18), i.e., Christ's church can never die.
My Brother and sisters Find a Bible-reading church to attend and be baptized in Jesus name. Jesus is coming soon, and we are all going to live with Him and our Heavenly Father forever and ever! Keep coming here to read and study in your own home and the time you want to spend proving all things, holding on to that which is truth. HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS FROM GOD: "And the angel showed me a pure river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb, coursing down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations. No longer will anything be cursed. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads .And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever." ( Rev 22: 1-6)
Now beloved brethren, I’ve got news for those of you who go to church just to keep from burning in hell. God doesn’t want anyone who doesn’t love Him because of who He is or because of who Jesus is, if your in church for any other reason your wasting your time for God wants you there to be His loving sons and daughters because you want and love Him. Amen!"
"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' "Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' "The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.' "They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?' "He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.' "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life." (Matthew 25:31-46)
This is what we should be hearing about making it to the kingdom and living forever with our All Loving Father who gives life! DO NOT LISTEN TO ALL THE HATE FILLED preachers and what they are preaching today, saying things like "your not going to make it, or you all deserve to be in Hell. Or I heard John Hegie say 85% of my congregation won’t make it". Your ALL going to Burn--- THIS IS NOT WHAT JESUS SAID TO ANYONE.— I dare you to find it in your Bibles!
JESUS SAID "REPENT AND BELIEVE IN ME AND YOU SHALL BE SAVED". AMEN!
Beloved we look forward to the days spoken of over 2,000 years ago and the kingdom is closer now than most think, be ready!
"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord".(Romans 8:38-39)
