Part of the answer lies within the question itself; to reveal to the world the Son of God whom they’ve rejected or have not seen. Yet it goes deeper than that. We’re probably certain from our expectations of judgment upon the disobedient and wicked, what the Lord intends for the world. But is that viewpoint a complete one? Let’s consider it from a broader context.
In this last article we look at the completed work of Yeshua the Christ and the kingdom he delivers to the Father.
In this article we continue by looking further into the work of Yeshua the Christ and his kingdom-building process after he returns to the earth.
In Ephesians 2, the author is drawing a distinction between two types of works; those that you can’t do, and those that you were called to do. This article takes a look at this distinction in more detail.
In this article we continue by looking briefly into the work of Yeshua the Christ and his kingdom-building process, beginning with the kingdom of the priests. There is a process to kingdom-building, and it begins with the King and High Priest, whose example and preeminence clear the way for those who will follow as heirs of the glory given by God the Father.
In this article, let’s continue to look deeper into 2 Peter 2 and examine the other examples of God’s deliverance cited there. Peter’s objective is not just to show how God is able to rescue the Godly from trials, it’s also to show his power to restrain the wicked sufficiently so that the whole world throughout time is not engulfed in wickedness until his work in Christ Jesus is underway.
In this article we look at God’s redemptive work in Christ through the topical framework of the kingdom of God. To do this, we review Christ’s kingdom-building process through the ages with the nation of Israel and with those who were not a people – the Gentiles. What we find is that the hopes of Israel and those faithful in Christ appear to point to a common destination.
The difference between inheriting the Kingdom of God and dwelling in it is derived from noticing the various characteristics used to describe the kingdom throughout the Bible. In some cases, these references are clearly physical and of the earth, while others are clearly spiritual and of the heavenly realm. This article looks at these differences and connects them with the will of God and his work in Christ.
Our goal in understanding the called, chosen, and faithful body of believers needs to be defined by God’s word rather than man’s tradition.
The kingdom of God is as vast and unknowable as the God from whom it derives its name. It is by his Holy Spirit that we can know the hidden secrets of the kingdom.
