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 1)

As He was preparing for His coronation, The Eternal King (Jesus Christ) turned to His disciples and said, “ The Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come……For there will be greater anguish than at any time since the world began. And it will never be so great again. In fact, unless that time of calamity is shortened, not a single person will survive. But it will be shortened for the sake of God’s chosen ones” Matthew 24:14,21-22 NLT.  We are about to enter a time when men will experience the judgements of God in a way they have never seen before. Most of the people in the world don’t understand what that means.  This includes many believers.

In the beginning of time, when satan rebelled against God, he entered into the darkness outside the eternal life of God.   In that darkness everything bad exists; destruction, confusion, and eternal death.  God immediately touched the darkness and began the process of redemption through His righteous judgements according to His eternal laws.  

When God created man, man was a living soul. The eternal life of God’s Spirit controlled his heart and mind.  Man was God’s answer to satan’s rebellion.  As long as man lived in obedient fellowship with God he had the power to defeat satan and restore life to that which had been lost when satan fell.  Satan knew this and deceived man into joining his rebellion.  Instead of fellowship with God, man found himself under the judgements of God’s eternal, unchanging laws.  

Separated from fellowship with God, man began to experience the darkness of death.  Mankind was headed for eternal destruction along with satan.  Yet God in His infinite knowledge and wisdom already had a plan to restore man to obedient fellowship with Him.  What was God’s plan?  God himself would become a man, die an agonizing death on a cruel cross, and defeat satan.  Every person who believed this would be restored to fellowship with God.  They would be able to grow to know God and overcome satan’s deceptions.  God’s Spirit speaks to the heart of every person telling them about this plan.  All through history the people who have sought fellowship with God have trusted in this plan, even those who lived before Jesus Christ came. They will survive God’s judgements. This plan defeated satan. It is redeeming from creation all that is part of God’s Eternal Kingdom which satan stole when he rebelled against God. 

The purpose of God’s judgements is to destroy satan and satan’s works. God’s judgements cleanse the deceptions of satan from the hearts and minds of people who walk in fellowship with Him.  Those who know and love God grow to know Him more through the tough times.  The more they know Him, the more they become like Him.  They understand that God’s judgements are part of His redemptive process.  They live to fulfill God’s purpose and rejoice in what God is doing to redeem creation.

QUESTION:    Do you understand that God’s judgements are part of His redemptive process?
