I read some of your article on the millenniem, but will have to go back and read the rest when I have some more time... (kinda busy with kids right now...) I'm happy to find someone else who has a serious interest in the prophecy concerning the end, because you're right, the message of the Kingdom is really about the Kingdom that is yet to come! Honestly, I haven't yet put much consideration into the matter of the actual millenium, but have focused more on the issue of the tribulation (probably cuz that comes first...) After reading scriptures like Matthew 24 and 2 Thess. 2, I've been pretty soundly convinced that Jesus will come after the antichrist.... Anyways, I look forward to having more dialogue with you about this in the future. Till then, Daniel
Hi! I'd like to tell you that I only possess a very simple mind and a very simple faith. I am an action person. I don't want to sit and think or speculate. I only know that right now Jesus rules my heart and my life- He is my King and Lord. Being in the place where I am now is a living example of taking up ones cross and following Jesus. I do not have any other interest or desire, but to worship the King. I totally enjoy the freedom in His kingdom right now- His kingdom of love, where Galatians 5:22-23 describe this freedom as that there is no law against love or love is above any law. I am not bound by anything, but only the love of God, who is Jesus and in Him I abide and He with me- right now.
Hi Edgardo: I found your article very interesting, and have heard this teaching several times recently. I've never actually studied it out for myself, but I will look into it as time permits. Thank you for sharing your concerns with the Body of Christ. God Bless You! Jill
99% of what you wrote witnesssed with my spirit, i did not understand the other 1% so will read it agian. What you have written in general is the present day truth God is bringing forth. The establishment of His kingdom in and through his Bride. There is a lot to be written on this that can't be done in a comment...
The Gospel of the Kingdom of God is going to eclipse the gospel of the churchdom... IC or SC. Jesus came preaching, repent, (change you mind) the kingdom of The heavens is at hand, in other words, it is here... the reign of the heavens will be established on earth as Jesus prayed, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
I used to be into doctrine and the future. Now I am just into a Jesus I can walk with, talk with and get to know. It is my desire to see the Church make Jesus our real Lord and King thus making the kingdom visible on earth. I am not really to worried about the future I am just trying to follow his voice today and encourage others to do the same. C
I have been to Las Pinas, nice place - have a good day bro
You might enjoy this -
Bro., Rom 10:17 has absolutely nothing to do with doctrine or reading the Bible. Paul is talking about listening to the indwelling Lord, that still small voice within you. Faith comes by listening to and getting to really know Jesus Christ the Word of God. Here is a quote from the Jesus as recorded in the scriptures - he was speaking to men who were all about tradition and doctrine
Jn.5:39-40 “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.
We have the scriptures that point us to Jesus but many Christians refuse to go to Jesus and instead study traditions like the rapture (I know I used to do this). These theologians were so sure they new about the timing and nature of the coming Messiah that they totally missed Him who was speaking to them. These men did not really know God or love Him (they thought they loved Him) they had simply studied about Him. Sound doctrine is good - but what we have come to know and accept as doctrine is nothing more than man's traditions.
PS - I lived in the Philippines for about 10 years teaching doctrine (mans traditions) - it was just my ignorance in the ways and nature of the Lord.
Abundant and eternal life to you and your family, Brother Edgardo.
I suppose that, as you say in the second reading you recommended to me, it would be important to know the timing of the rapture. Also, as you wrote in that article, "We had better take warning. There is no doubt that the “God, that cannot lie” (Titus 1:2) means what He says and says what He means. It is a fearful thing to knowingly reject Revelation."
Now, I must know, what the people who taught you those things that you wrote in those two articles you offered me instructed you regarding the scripture that you wrote that last quote about in your article: Revelation 20:1-7. I already know, because you just taught me, that the entire bride of Christ will be reigning with Jesus during the 1000 years that satan is bound. I also just learned from you that the first resurrection is the pre-tribulation rapture.
Is it the King James version of the holy book that is at fault, or should John have finished watching the entire Left Behind series before he presumed to write the Revelation of Jesus: here it is recorded that he wrote
1) that the first resurrection is only the Believers who refused to worship the beast and his image and therefore lost their heads
2) that the rest of the dead are still in the grave during the time that satan is in the h***.
Please. What do they say?
Thanks for the time. Be blessed in every way to be and to do all that the Lord of the very ripe harvest has ordained you to (John 15:16; 1 Cor 12:18).
