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 5)

As He walked among the multitudes He talked about what it meant to follow Him and escape the judgements of this world.  While Jesus was sharing He spoke these words, “You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.” Luke 12:40 NLT   As He was preparing for His crucifixion He told His followers, “now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.” Luke 22:36 NLT   The Message translates it this way, “This is different. Get ready for trouble. Look to what you’ll need; there are difficult times ahead. Pawn your coat and get a sword.” Luke 22:36 The Message   

In our previous messages we talked about what it meant to be spiritually ready to survive God’s judgements.  An ongoing relationship with God The Father through Jesus The Son is the key to surviving any catastrophe that comes our way.  If everything we have is truly surrendered to Him, we will be prepared to leave it all on a moment’s notice, and go where Jesus tells us to go.  The early church in Acts 8 had to do that.  The apostle Paul also had to do it numerous times.  God does not want us to be unprepared to leave on a moment’s notice at the leading of His Spirit.  His instructions to His disciples in Luke 22:36 make that clear. Being ready to survive disasters requires not only spiritual, but physical and material preparation.

Each person must seek God’s wisdom on how to prepare.  His instructions to us may vary depending on our circumstances and calling in The Lord.

Here are some of the things we have learned about physical and material preparation from the difficult times we have faced throughout our lives.  From our experience PRAYERFULLY PREPARING FOR DISASTER INVOLVES:

1.   GROWING TO KNOW GOD.  Learn to hear His voice.  Only He can tell you what you should do.  He will tell you whether to leave or stay.  If He tells you to leave, He’ll also tell you where to go.

2.    BEING READY FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF LEAVING IN 5 MINUTES OR LESS. Here are some things to consider.

        A.  HAVING AN EMERGENCY PACK that you carry with you all the time.  This pack is designed to help you survive an emergency for 3 days until help arrives. It should contain the following:
Should weigh 10lbs./4.5kg or less

Bible (Small)
Blanket (Emergency Survival)
Documents (Include Family contact list with names, addresses, phone numbers, and Email addresses.  You also need copies of important personal documents such as; passport, driver’s license, medical coverage, etc.)

Food (Protein and Energy bars for 3 days)
HAM Handi Talkie or hand held CB radio
Knife (Swiss Army Type)
Medicines & Vitamins
Tissue & Handi wipes
Underwear (1 set)
Water Bottles (1 Liter Plus Filter Straw)
Whistle (Emergency type with matches and survival supplies inside)

         B. HAVING A SURVIVAL PACK ALSO KNOWN AS A GO PACK OR BUG OUT BAG.  This pack is designed to help you get through the first 3 days after an emergency and survive indefinitely if the system totally breaks down. Placed where you can get to it quickly if needed.)
Should weigh 50lbs./22.5kg or less                              

Bible (Small)
Binoculars (Small)

Weapons (Pistol, Survival Rifle, and/or Sword or Machete)
Whistle (Emergency type with matches and survival supplies inside)

 3.  THINKING ABOUT TRANSPORTATION.  If you have a vehicle DO NOT let the gas tank get below 1/2.  Try to always back into the place where you park your car. This will allow you to leave quicker if there is an emergency.  BICYCLES are usually a good alternative means of transportation.

 4.  HAVING A PREDETERMINED PLACE where you feel God wants you to go in case of disaster. Make sure all family members know how to get there.  Family members should carry a piece of paper with the name,  a map, and address of the place they are to go. Also contact information, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. of other family members.  PLAN YOUR ESCAPE ROUTE SO YOU WILL AVOID MAIN ROADS. They will probably be too congested in an emergency.

 5.  MAINTAINING AT LEAST A THIRTY DAY SUPPLY OF NON PERISHABLE FOOD AND GOODS.  Keep it in a container or trunk you can grab on a moment’s notice and place in your vehicle. Rotate the contents every 3 months.

6.  MAINTAINING A CONTAINER OF CAMPING EQUIPMENT that you can grab and place in your vehicle on a moment’s notice. This container should include tents, air mattresses, air pump, sleeping bags, cooking utensils, etc.

A SMALL WATERPROOF CONTAINER that you can grab on a
moment’s notice. This container should include deeds, birth 
certificates, passports, insurance papers, Wills, Powers of Attorney, bank documents, etc.

AND OTHER THINGS AVAILABLE.  You may want to include this
in the things you pack.
 9.  KEEPING ANY MEDICATIONS YOU TAKE IN A SMALL WATERPROOF CONTAINER that you can grab on a moment’s notice. 

if God blesses and you’re able to do it. You will want to keep
a 6 months’ supply of non-perishable items there.  Be sure to
rotate these supplies as much as you can.

11. PRACTICING DISASTER PREPAREDNESS twice a year if possible.

REMEMBER OUR HOPE IS IN GOD!  He is the one we are to look to when disaster comes.  Be as ready as you can and then approach each situation with prayer. 

A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.  Proverbs 22:3 & 27:12 NKJV 

QUESTION:   Are you ready for the end of all things as we
know it? It could come any day!   

Scriptures: Luke 12:40 & 22:36, The book of Acts, and
Proverbs 22:3 & 27:12

God Has The Final Word On
Homosexual Marriage and Homosexuality
  God, not the homosexual activist or the government officials of the world, has the final word on homosexual marriage and homosexuality.  Here is how His final word will come. When time is no more, every person who’s ever existed will stand before The Highest Court and The Final Judge, The Eternal King, Jesus.  In an instant He will pass judgment on everyone. Those who succeeded in life by choosing to follow Him as King will enter His Eternal Kingdom and its abundant blessings forever.  Those who rejected Him
 will begin the nightmare that never ends.

“I told you in My Word that homosexuality is an abomination.  I loved you.  That’s why I died on The Cross and defeated sins power so you could overcome the temptation to be homosexual.  I spoke to you by The Holy Spirit, but you rejected my voice.  Instead, you chose to pursue your own selfish lust and pervert the divine order I created.  Depart from me, I never knew you.  Go to the place I prepared for the devil and his angels.”

Question: Are you living a homosexual lifestyle or approving of those who do?

There is hope.  His name is Jesus Christ.  The Final Judge will pardon you right now if you:  Trust in Jesus’ death and resurrection to set you free from everything in your life that offends God.  Surrender your heart and will to Him.  Ask Him to be in charge of your life.  Think about what His Word, The Bible, says every day and how it applies to you.  Pray.  Talk to Him every day about what’s happening in your life.  Seek to obey The Holy Spirit in all you do.

(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?
