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.



(Understanding God’s Judgements Part 2)

He was standing before Pilate, the man who had the political power to condemn Him to death. “Why don’t you talk to me?” Pilate demanded. “Don’t you realize that I have the power to release you or crucify you?   Then Jesus said, “You would have no power over me at all unless it were given to you from above.”
John 19:10-11 NLT

One of the biggest deceptions Satan has placed in the hearts of people is that God is not in control of what’s happening in the world.  Today most people believe that the things that happen are a result of nature. They believe if science can figure out nature, then we can control what’s happening.  Science at its best will never scratch the surface of what an all knowing God understands.  It will never gain control of what’s happening on earth.

Make no mistake.  God is in control of everything.  He is not asleep. His Eternal Kingdom, which He set up according to His unchanging eternal laws, rules over everything in time and eternity.

God controls what happens to people. “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.”
Proverbs 16:9 NLT

God’s in charge of political decisions.  “The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the LORD; he guides it wherever he pleases.”
Proverbs 21:1 NLT

God determines what happens with the economy.  “He did all this so you would never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.’  Remember the LORD your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful,” Deuteronomy 8:17-18 NLT

What happens in a nation is determined by God.  “If I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down, and destroyed, but then that nation renounces its evil ways, I will not destroy it as I had planned.  And if I announce that I will plant and build up a certain nation or kingdom, but then that nation turns to evil and refuses to obey me, I will not bless it as I said I would.” Jeremiah 18:7-10 NLT

God determines who wins wars.  “The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the LORD.” Proverbs 21:31 NLT

What happens in nature is spoken into being by God.  “The voice of the LORD is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The LORD is over many waters.  The voice of The Lord is powerful; The voice of the LORD is full of majesty.  The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars,Yes, the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon.  He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the LORD divides the flames of fire.  The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; The LORD shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.  The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare;” Psalm 29: 3-9 NKJV

God controls the weather.  “He covers the heavens
with clouds, provides rain for the earth,  and makes
the grass grow in mountain pastures……He sends
the snow like white wool;   He scatters frost upon the
ground like ashes. He hurls the hail like stones. Who
can stand against His freezing cold?   Then, at His
command, it all melts. He sends His winds, and the ice thaws.”
Psalm 147:8 &16-18 NLT

God is in charge of the food supply.  “You cause grass to grow for the livestock and plants for people to use.  You allow them to produce food from the earth-”
Psalm 104:14 NLT

Animals do God’s bidding.  “I will send wild animals that will rob you of your children and destroy your livestock.” Leviticus 26:22 NLT

Everything that happens is under God’s control.  “Remember the things I have done in the past.   For I alone am God!  I am God, and there is none like Me.   Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.”
Isaiah 46:9-10 NLT

So if God is in charge why does evil exist?  Evil exists because satan rebelled against God.  Those who join satan in his rebellion continue to promote its existence through their disobedience.

God is like a master chess player.  His eternal unchanging laws were set up so that His Eternal Kingdom would always be victorious.  In His infinite wisdom God made The Eternal Kingdom a place of light, life, love, blessing and goodness.  His laws will not allow anything that would take away from that to remain in His Kingdom.  God’s judgements are His response to the things that would pollute His Kingdom.  Through His judgements evil will be completely removed from creation.  Because God is in control His Eternal Kingdom will always be a place of light, life, love, blessing and goodness. His desire is for every person to be delivered from evil and become part of His Kingdom. Everything He is doing is so people will escape eternal judgement and live in fellowship with Him

QUESTION:    Do you believe that God is in control of everything?
