The kingdom of God is the rule of an eternal sovereign God over all creatures and things (Psalm 103:19; Daniel 4:3). The kingdom of God is also the designation for the sphere of salvation entered into at the new birth (John 3:5-7), and is synonymous with the “kingdom of heaven.”

The kingdom of God embraces all created intelligence, both in heaven and earth that are willingly subject to the Lord and are in fellowship with Him. The kingdom of God is, therefore, universal in that it includes created angels and men. It is eternal, as God is eternal, and it is spiritual—found within all born-again believers. We enter the kingdom of God when we are born again, and we are then part of that kingdom for eternity. It is a relationship “born of the spirit” (John 3:5), and we have confident assurance that it is so because the Spirit bears witness with our spirits (Romans 8:16).

God is sovereign, omnipotent, omniscient and the ruler over all of His creation. However, the designation “the kingdom of God” compasses that realm which is subject to God and will be for eternity. The rest of creation will be destroyed. Only that which is part of the “kingdom of God” will remain.

churchill's empireI am in the process of reading a book about Sir Winston Churchill. For the most part, what I know about Churchill relates to his role as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during World War II. Churchill’s Empireby Richard Toye focuses on focuses on Churchill’s beliefs and his role with respect to British imperialism (see here,here and here for reviews).

I doubt most Americans give the matter much thought now, but at one time the British Empire was huge.

By 1922 the British Empire held sway over about 458 million people, one-fifth of the world’s population at the time.The empire covered more than 33,700,000km2 (13,012,000sqmi), almost a quarter of the Earth’s total land area.As a result, its political,legal, linguistic and cultural legacy is widespread. At the peak of its power, the phrase “the empire on which the sun never sets” was often used…

I think this is well worthy of viewing. It speaks loudly of Christianity and Christianity’s playing with liberalism. It casts great influence upon how “we, as Christians, are sheltering Liberal World View.” VOTE the Bible come November 4th folks or finish the eradication of our rights.

“Gospel Plow” (also known as “Hold On”) is a traditional American folk song. It is listed in the Roud Folk Song Index, number 10075. The title is biblical, based on Luke 9:62.

God’s Love Comforts Us

Romans 8:38-39

Our heavenly Father wants us to know how much He loves and cares for us. He has made this clear through . . .

  • Revelation of Himself. In scripture, we learn that the Creator made us in His image and has a purpose for our lives. We also discover that sin has separated us from the Lord, but He has a solution to our problem.
  • Provision of a Savior. We were trapped by our sinful nature and unable to free ourselves. That left us helpless and lost, like sheep without a shepherd (Matt. 9:36). Worse still, we were under a sentence of eternal death—separation from the Lord forever. Because of our Father’s great love for mankind, He sent His only Son to bear the penalty we deserved (Rom. 6:23) and to give us eternal life. Jesus rescued us from slavery to sin and reconciled us to the Father. What we could never do for ourselves, He did for us. His provision is free to us but costly to Him.
  • Adoption of believers. When we place our trust in Jesus Christ as our Savior, we become children of God. The separation between Him and us is gone; instead of enemies, we are family. His indwelling Holy Spirit serves as both evidence that we belong to God and assurance of His unending love.

The Father’s care for us shines brightly through the cross—it was because of love that He sent Jesus to earth to die in our place (1 John 4:9-10). Once we accept the gift of salvation through Christ, nothing can separate us from God’s love. What a comfort that is in times of need.

Radical Muslims need to be stopped; President Obama needs to be impeached.

The Muslim Issue

Why didn’t the U.S. government leave this rat Bowe Bergdahl to his self-created destiny? Should more and more people die in terrorist attacks to negotiate the release of someone suspected of intentionally organizing this scenario to pressure the government to release terrorists.

Before his twitter account was deleted Robert Bergdahl, the father of anti-American POW Bowe Bergdahl, who now goes by the name Abdullah, attests he is working to free all Muslim mass-murderers detained in Guantanamo Bay.

Robert Bergdahl demonstrates how delusional and how out of touch to reality libtards truly are. The Taliban are no humanitarians. Like Hamas, they constantly kill and oppress their own people. They don’t function for the best interest of the Afghan people. There is no one helping the Afghan people. President Karzai suffers from manic depressive conditions with aggressive and unpredictable mood changes and is not psychologically suitable to run the country. The Taliban…

A message we should all recall – and recall it daily. I thank you for this message and it’s reminder.

May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless and keep you and yours always.

Second Star to the Right

 And they compelled one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross. Mark 15:21

How many times have you been made to do something?  Make your bed.  Clean the kitchen.  Wake up at 6:30am for work.  Nagging parents or complaining housemates or the necessity of an income compels us.  But what if we were forced to move in with strangers?  Or forbidden to ever see our parents again?  Or safety was a physical restraint?

This is reality for the children at Mount Saint Vincent Home.  Due to no fault of their own, these innocent souls have been forced into a system that will likely spit them back into an inhumane world.  Yet they take up this cross with such courage.  The child who joyfully exclaims, “ready, set, take a break!” in gym class is the same who pleas, “a daddy and…

Romans 10:9-11

As believers mature spiritually and gain wisdom from God’s Word, they should recognize that faith, confession, and repentance are all necessary tools for maintaining an intimate relationship with the Lord. We need to believe that Jesus forgives our sin, which leads us to confess wrongs before Him and turn away from them so that we will not continue to grieve our Father. If one tool is ignored, the remaining two cannot complete the job of building a successful Christian life.

Faith means believing that God forgives our sins and meets our needs, but it doesn’t imply that we should be passive. The life of faith takes work—we pray, obey, serve, and keep our heart clear of sin through confession and repentance. If our view of God is clouded by sin, we’ll find it hard to trust Him.

When we trust God’s power to forgive, we gain confidence to confess sin—this means agreeing with Him that our transgression is wrong and violates His will. We can’t seek His forgiveness until we are willing to identify our sin and recognize how it negatively impacts our relationship with Him. Yet confession is incomplete unless we also repent. And sadly, true repentance—turning away from sin through the power of the Holy Spirit—is increasingly neglected as our society encourages tolerance and doing whatever feels right.

Realize that sin must be abandoned because it grieves God; otherwise, you will damage your fellowship with Him. To keep your heart pure before the Lord, use all the tools He has given: faith, confession, and repentance.
