There is a Kingdom that has always been, and will always be. It is found in the heart of Jehovah God who has no beginning or end. He lives in eternity, and rules over all that exist. Before time began, before you were born, God had an eternal purpose for your life. The only way to find and fulfill this eternal purpose is through a relationship with The Eternal King, Jesus Christ. This blog is about The Eternal King and His Kingdom. It is about how you can be part of His Kingdom by having a relationship with Him, and fulfilling His eternal purpose for you.



    The political leader thought he was a God to be worshiped and the religious leaders were corrupt.  This was the world that Jesus was born into.  Three hundred years later the political leader of that same nation gave His life to Jesus, and encouraged the citizens to do the same.  The religious system that the corrupt religious leaders led no longer existed.  How did Jesus defeat the wickedness of His generation?  He focused on The Eternal Kingdom.  He did not try to change the political situation, but instead focused on changing people’s hearts.  He went around sharing the message of The Kingdom, and doing good even to His enemies.  He encouraged His followers to do the same.1

    Jesus understood this life is only temporary.  Eventually the world will self-destruct because of sin.  God will roll up the Universe like a piece of cloth.  Time will be no more.  Eternity with God will be the only living thing.2

    Because Jesus loves people He paid the price with His own blood so that every person can be part of His Kingdom.3 Since God loves everyone, His Holy Spirit speaks to every heart.  He tells them that they are a sinner, that His offer of salvation is their only hope, and that if they do not become part of His Kingdom they will be destroyed.4  Those who trust in His salvation with all their heart become His Followers.  Jesus told His followers to make His   Kingdom and their relationship with Him the main focus of their lives.5 Jesus and His early Apostles made it clear that Christ’s followers are His physical presence in this world.  They are His hands, His feet, His eyes, His ears, His mouth, and are called to defeat the wickedness around them.6

    Jesus’ early followers manifested the life of The Holy Spirit inside them and overcame the wickedness in their world.7 Jesus calls us today to live as He and His early followers lived.8 We need to make His Kingdom and our relationship with Him the main focus of our lives.  If we will do this, we will be His physical presence in this world.  We will be His hands, His feet, His eyes, His ears, and His mouth and overthrow the wickedness around us.   Jesus will give us the wisdom to do the right thing to the enemies of God.  If we try to overcome evil in our own strength, we ourselves will become evil.  When we overcome evil by doing good using God’s wisdom, God Himself will defeat the evil around us.  His will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven.9

    How can we defeat the wickedness around us?  The same way Jesus and His early followers did.  Focus on changing people’s hearts by sharing the message of The Kingdom with them, and doing good to them even when they are an enemy of God. 

BASIC Question:  Are you allowing God to manifest His physical presence through you so He can use you to defeat the wickedness in your world?
