The Kingdom Has Arrived

By |Feb 6, 2018|Believe, Christ, Devotionals, Father, Kingdom of God, Repentance|0 Comments

The Son of Man is given a mission to have dominion over all kingdoms and governments, all nations and ethnic groups, all languages and cultures.  It is called the Kingdom of God.  The good news of the NT is that this long awaited kingdom has arrived in Jesus of Nazareth.  We align ourselves with it

The Gospel Is For Now

By |Feb 5, 2018|Christ, Evangelism, Father, Kingdom of God, Life, Sin|0 Comments

Our evangelism is often driven by getting people ready for the next world.  The evangelism of Jesus and the Apostles was to get converts to the Kingdom of God ready for this world.  They were to live their lives for and under God’s government and not the political powers of the moment.  They were to

The Accuser’s Words

By |Jan 24, 2018|Christ, Devotionals, Kingdom of God|0 Comments

In our worst moments we verbalize the voice of the Accuser through our own voices with the words we say.  He who has secretly mocked us and falsely accused us is delighted when we say about ourselves what he has been saying to us.  Oh Christ, Your Kingdom has come to cast out the Accuser.

The Son

The Son was with God and was God.  The Son descended through the Virgin’s womb.  He was born.  He was one with us.  He lived the life of God among us.  He brought the Kingdom of God to be yeast among the governments of earth.  He suffered with us.  He died.  He arose.  He ascended.

The Fellowship Of Priests

By |Jan 9, 2018|Christ, Devotionals, Healing, Kingdom of God, Prayer, Reconciliation|0 Comments

Israel’s mission was to be a “kingdom of priests and a holy nation” (Exodus 19:6).  The vision of the Kingdom of God is that it is a Kingdom of priests.  As priests, we pray with our High Priest.  Jesus is both King and Priest.  We are one with Him in that, and we serve with

King of All

By |Dec 14, 2017|Advent, Christ, Christmas, Devotionals, Kingdom of God, Relationships|0 Comments

The world wants to restrict Jesus to your private spiritual life.  Sadly we have capitulated.  The world is fine with that.  It does not want His kingdom teachings messing up their lives and values.  Jesus wants to bring all things under the dominion of God as the true King of the world.  Nothing is left

The Freeing Jubilee

By |Dec 11, 2017|Advent, Christ, Christmas, Devotionals, Forgiveness, Forgiving, Kingdom of God|0 Comments

Jesus’ kingdom is a jubilee kingdom of forgiveness and cancelled debts.  He said, “When you pray say, ‘forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us’” (Luke 11:4).  Nothing can free you as much as receiving your own forgiveness and forgiving someone else.  The two go hand in hand;

A Pagan World

By |Nov 30, 2017|Christ, Church, Death, Devotionals, Kingdom of God, Power, Spirit|0 Comments

The church was born in a pagan world, and it did just fine.  Polytheism and idol worship were everywhere.  Sensuality with its confusion about human sexuality abounded.  Dehumanizing slavery was highly prevalent.  The pagan world was not a match for the Kingdom of God.  The announced gospel made it obsolete.  It crumbled before a Spirit

True Christian Community

By |Nov 26, 2017|Christ, Church, Devotionals, Faith, Fellowship, God's Word, Kingdom of God, Mission|0 Comments

Someone has said, “People who come together just to be together do not comprise Christian community.”  Heretics can do that.  Gangs do that.  Social clubs do that.  In the church we gather around creeds that are still very relevant.  We gather around “the faith once delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3).  We live the life
