The coming Kingdom of GOD.

Brethren,

Knowing that Christmas is fast approaching, and that our SAVIORS birth brings much hope and joy.


What would you say, is our greatest hope?"



I ask this, because


Titus 2:13 speaks of a Blessed Hope.


And that that Hope, is The Coming of our great GOD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST!"



Consider how it reads:  "Looking for the Blessed Hope and Glorious appearing of our Great GOD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST."



[The time of CHRIST’S coming for us, HIS  Church, is our Blessed Hope."


 


Wouldn't you say?


 


But for now, lawlessness is at work. And until the Church is taken out of the way, via the Rapture.


We must endure many hardships.



For through Acts 14:22


The LORD gives us this admonition, saying:


 


Strengthening the soul's of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the FAITH, and saying, "We must through many tribulations enter The KINGDOM Of GOD.



And 2nd Thessalonians 2:6-12 reveals this time of tribulation, and how The BODY of CHRIST will be taken out of the way, by saying]:



And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.


For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only HE  Who now restrains (will do so) until HE is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom The LORD will consume with The Breath of HIS  Mouth and destroy with the brightness of HIS coming.


The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the LOVE of The TRUTH, that they might be SAVED.


And for this reason GOD will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not Believe The TRUTH  but had pleasure in unrighteousness.



[With that said, consider this, as the year 2020 ended, and 2021 began, the world was reeling from the COVID virus, and its worldwide outbreak."



And that same COVID outbreak, was evidence of GOD’S coming judgment on mankind’s rebellion against HIS WORD."


And it has not been COVID alone, but also other outbreaks, like the Black Plague, Ebola, Aids, Sars, and a number of others.



These are all evidence of GOD’S coming judgment on mankind’s rebellion.



Yet, because skeptics and scoffers have always had their say.


A great number of them claim that these outbreaks are nothing more than the upheaval of natural forces.



But though they try to explain these evils away, we would all do well to consider them from a long-range viewpoint.



For throughout the ages, these things have happened again and again."



And this, because GOD cannot be mocked!"


Just as Galatians 6:7 assures us."


For whatsoever a man may sow, this shall he also reap!"



Therefore, this WORD from Colossians 3:5-10, is for the son's of GOD, though some be still in disobedience.


It reads:



Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is Idolatry.


Because of these things the wrath of GOD is coming upon the son's of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.


But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.


Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of HIM  Who created him.



[And knowing that JESUS CHRIST - The WORD of The LIVING GOD - our FATHER, created each of us.


"Aren't we being renewed in the wisdom of HIM,  Who created us with HIS WORD?"



            Yes?



We are, but through the leading of Satan, the vast majority of humanity, resists GOD, and refuses to do GOD’S will, and be obedient to HIS WORD.



So The WORD Of GOD speaks to them through John 8:44, saying]:



You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do.


He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in The TRUTH, because there is no TRUTH in him.



[And because those who refuse to embrace GOD'S WORD, are referred to as Satan's children.


They do the will of their father, and inflict barbaric suffering and horrible acts of cruelty on one another."



It's this way because


down through the ages, the devil has been working in the hearts and minds of men, who do not Believe GOD, nor embrace The TRUTH of HIS WORD.


And Cain, Adam's first son, was the first to do the will of Satan.



He did not Believe GOD, and his actions could not please HIM.



Even as those who today,


Do not Believe GOD;


Can by no means please HIM."



Of this, Hebrews 11:6 assures us by saying]:



But without FAITH it is impossible to please HIM, for he who comes to GOD must Believe that HE is, and that HE is a REWARDER of those who diligently seek HIM.



[Yet, because most of humanity does not dillingently seek GOD; but refuse to daily feed on The TRUTH of HIS WORD."



They fall right in line with the will and desires of their father, the devil.


For it is he, who would have the entire world,


to ignore GOD.



And that's the case for most of humanity!"



They resist GOD, and prefer to embrace the will and desires of the flesh.



The same flesh, that Satan has rule over, because it was made of the dust of the earth."



The same earth, that GOD cursed; when Adam obeyed the voice of his wife, above The WORD of The LIVING GOD."


And in his disobedience, he ate the fruit of a forbidden tree, which GOD commanded him not to eat from."



Let me share the account with you."


Genesis 3:17 reveals it]: 



Then to Adam HE said,  "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it":  "Cursed is the ground for your sake;


In toil you shall eat of it


All the days of your LIFE.



["And because humanity has been made of the dust of the earth that comes from the ground that GOD cursed."



Natural disasters, like hurricanes, earth quakes, and humanity's cruelty towards one another has been prevalent.


And all this because of mankind's refusal to obey GOD.



Thus, like a cup of trembling, we encounter much suffering and tribulation, in this fallen world.



Yet, we who Believe GOD, have the promise of a glorious KINGDOM in which RIGHTEOUSNESS will dwell.


2nd Thessalonians 2:13-14 speaks of this coming KINGDOM, like this]: 



But we are bound to give thanks to GOD always for you, Brethren Beloved by The LORD, because GOD from the beginning chose you for SALVATION through SANCTIFICATION by



 The SPIRIT and Belief in The TRUTH, to which HE called you by our GOSPEL, for the obtaining of The GLORY of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.



[Troubling times, and times of testing are even now clearly seen."


 


And because lawlessness has abounded, the LOVE of many has grown cold.



["Yet, the time is fast approaching when our LORD JESUS CHRIST, will make all things right!"



HE assures us, Beloved, that the first will be last, and the last shall be first."



 So we who are BORN from Above - BORN AGAIN;  for GOD'S  LIFE-GIVING  WORD, we daily hunger for, and we thirst!"



We hunger and thirst for



JESUS
