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 4)

He had just defeated the most powerful enemy He would ever meet.  He wanted others to have the same victory. From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” Matthew 4:17 NLT

God did not want man to continue being deceived by the devil and suffering the affects of His judgements.  God knew all of us are born with a wicked, sinful heart. He understood we must have a spiritual birth in order to be set free from sin (disobedience to God) and become part of The Eternal Kingdom. That is why He came to earth as Jesus; died on The Cross; went to hell; destroyed satan’s power over the souls of men; and came back to life in an eternal, transformed body.

Because He loves us, God’s Holy Spirit calls every person to repent of their sins and trust in His redemption with all their heart.  This is spiritual birth or being “born again.”

When Jesus died on The Cross and rose from the grave, He provided everything people need to set their souls free from satan’s deceptions and receive eternal life. His redemption was total.  He paid the price so people’s spirits, souls and eventually their bodies would be set free from the affects of God’s judgements. 

How can a person be “born again?”: 

Admit to yourself that you are a sinner.  Every person is born with a wicked heart. Things contrary to God’s eternal truth have become part of who we are. There are traditions of men contrary to God’s laws we have believed.  Lies that we think are truth have been placed into our hearts and mind. Some of these lies come from deceptive thoughts satan puts in our minds. Some of these are words people have spoken to us that we have received as truth when they are not.  We all have fleshly lust which we have yielded to because of satan’s temptations.  In order to have these cleansed from our body, soul, and spirit we must get honest with ourselves and God. Admitting we are a sinner, and judging ourselves honestly, enables God to cleanse us and deliver us from His judgements.

Repent of your sins!  With all your heart, seek to turn away from all that the Bible calls sin.

Believe with all your heart that Jesus’ death and resurrection is the only way you can have a relationship with God.

Pray to God in Jesus name telling Him that you know you are a sinner, and that you repent of your sins. Thank Him for providing redemption through Jesus. Yield control of everything in your life to God. Ask Jesus to become Lord of your life, and to give you a new heart and mind. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with God’s power so you can live to please Jesus instead of living to please yourself.  

If you do this with all your heart, not just your mind, you will receive eternal life and become part of God’s Kingdom. Eternal life is a relationship with God through Jesus.

Like any relationship, your relationship with God will grow as you spend time with Him each day. Because you still live in a physical body with sinful desires you must keep your heart surrendered to God daily in order to walk in fellowship with Him.  Remember, if we judge ourselves we will escape God’s judgements. This means every area of your life must stay yielded to Him.  God must be the most important person in your life. Every goal, ambition, hope and dream you have must come from your times with Him.  You must see everything you possess as a gift from God, and seek to please Him in how you use it.  His Word, The Bible, must become your daily spiritual bread. You must seek to continually walk in obedience to God through the power of the Holy Spirit. This will help you stay free of the devil’s deception. If you do these things you will be set free from the power of sin, grow to know God, and live to fulfill His purpose for your life.

Everyone needs to understand being “born again” is a work of The Holy Spirit in the hearts of people. One of the greatest deceptions satan tries to promote is that you can be “saved” simply by saying a prayer.  Prayer only works when there is heart repentance. If there is no desire to please God, then there has probably not been heart repentance. Every person who is living a sinful life style needs to exam their heart to see if they have truly yielded it to Jesus. If God’s eternal life is in us we will want to please Him in all we do.  Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” Matthew 7:21 NKJV If a person thinks that they can be part of The Eternal Kingdom and live to please themselves, they are deceived. If you are living to please yourself, you probably didn’t believe in Jesus with your heart, or you may be saved as by fire with no eternal reward.

You see, God doesn’t just want to save you from Hell; He wants to bless you with everything His Kingdom has to offer. This can only happen if your heart is totally yielded to Him, you grow to know Him, and live to do His will.

God doesn’t want anyone to suffer His judgements eternally in Hell. He has provided a way out through The Cross of Jesus Christ. God doesn’t send anyone to Hell. People choose to go to Hell by resisting The Holy Spirit, and continuing to live in the wickedness they were born in.  What about you? Have you received God’s salvation, or are you headed for eternal destruction?

QUESTION:   What is your choice Hell or God’s Kingdom?
