Ruling & Reigning in Life

Ruling & Reigning in Life by Messiah Yahshua.

He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
Proverbs 16:32 MEV

Many of Yahweh’s sons attempt to rule their own Spirit apart from the Sovereignty of Messiah.

I have come to understand that while we are all the children and offspring of Yahweh as it pertains to being born of the first man ADAM, we are not necessarily sons of the same Father and brothers of the same family as it pertains to being reborn of  the last man ADAM.

We will never rule and reign in life by Messiah Yahshua, unless and until we are willing to humble ourselves, become of no reputation, and wholly give ourselves to the order and governance of the Spirit, the Word and the Blood.

Until such time we are willing to become accountable to the Yahweh, Yahshua and Ruach HaKodesh, we will not be able to recognize or submit to those who represent His rule and authority in Earth.

“Where there is no submission there is no acceptance or recognition. Where there is no accountability there is no honor or credibility.”

Surrender and submission go hand in hand. One without the other will result in spending a lot of time alienated, isolated and alone, separated from the common wealth of the citizens of the Kingdom.

“We were not created to be alone. No man lives or dies to himself. No man is an island unto himself. We are not our own, we are bought with a price.”

“Yahweh said, it is not good for man to dwell alone.”

“For Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the Word of the Sovereign, He has rejected you from being king.” 1 Samuel 15:23 NKJV

For if by one man’s trespass death reigned through him, then how much more will those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17 MEV

Loving At All Times

“Don’t make a religion out of of being irreligious”

irreligious – indifferent or hostile to religion.

> Neglectful of religion: lacking religious emotions, doctrines, or practices.

> Indicating a lack of religion.

“We have a tendency to become that which we love and hate.”

Yahshua said, but I say to you,  love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those prosecute you, and pray for those who spitefully use and persecute you. Matthew 5:43-44 – MEV

Note: Loving, blessing, doing good and praying for people who despise, oppose and provoke us will involve a better understanding of the nature and character of Yahweh, and it will involve responding in a way that represents HIS heart at all times.

> It is important for us to LOVE what Yahweh LOVES and HATE what Yahweh HATES.

Yahweh is SPIRIT and LOVE. Therefore we must learn to respond out of the nature and character of Yahweh, which is the SPIRIT OF LOVE.

Ref. John 4:24 & 1 John 4:8

It is equally important for us to LOVE the WAY He loves at all times. Loving Him, Ourselves and One Another in and by the LOVE and Grace of YAHWEH.

James 1:27 – Real, true religion from God the Father’s perspective is about caring for the orphans and widows who suffer needlessly and resisting the evil influence of the World. The Voice

The worship that God wants is this: caring for orphans or widows who need help and keeping yourself free from the world’s evil influence. This is the kind of worship that God accepts as pure and good. ERV

Questions;

How can we say we love Yahweh and hate our brother?

How can we say we love ourselves and not others?

How can we say we love Yahweh, ourselves and others, while neglecting the orphans and widows in this world?

How can we honestly claim  to hate what Yahweh hates  and continue to be influenced by the EVIL of this world? Just asking!

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is NOT in him. 1 John 2:15 – MEV

The Ekklesia of Brotherly Love

The following letter was written to the Ekklesia at Philadelphia. However, as with all of the letters that were written, there are parts of them that still speak to us today. I believe that we are in a time when the letter to the Ekklesia in Philadelphia is speaking to the Ekklesia of our time in a way that will encourage us in the way. Please consider all of the different ways that it is still speaking to us today.

7“To the messenger of the church in Philadelphia, write:‘The one who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens a door that no one can shut, and who shuts a door that no one can open, ‘says this: 8‘I know what you’ve been doing. Look! I have put in front of you an open door that no one can shut. You have only a little strength, but you have obeyed my word and have not denied my name. 9I will make those who belong to the synagogue of Satan—those who claim to be Jews and aren’t, but are lying—come and bow down at your feet. Then they will realize that I have loved you. 10Because you have obeyed my command to endure, I will keep you from the hour of testing that is coming to the whole world to test those living on the earth. 11I am coming soon! Hold on to what you have so that no one takes your victor’s crown. 12I will make the one who conquers to become a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and he will never go out of it again. I will write on him the name of my God, the name of the city of my God (the new Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God), and my own new name.13‘Let everyone listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.’”

Revelation 3:7-13 ISV

POINTS TO CONSIDER:

1). I have put in front of you and open door that no man can shut

2). You have little strength

3). You have obeyed my Word

4). You have NOT denied MY NAME

5). You have obeyed my command to endure

Etc.

OPEN VISION – 2-28-15

While praying in the Spirit before falling to sleep, I had an open vision concerning this time and season, as well as our coming together in HIM.

Scene One:

I saw a pan full of stones, all shapes, sizes and colors. Upon first glance it was just a pan full of stones; but then the pan began to gently shake and the stones moved into place. There was no certain configuration or pattern as they came together in this time.

Scene Two:

I saw what looked like trees on a flat piece of property. As I was praying I saw them begin to move closer together. Then more trees from all around the area began to move toward the cluster. It was then that a strong wind blew against the trees and because they were strong, they were not destroyed. Then it seemed as though I was looking down from above at the cluster of trees and it appeared the they had become a dense forest. As the wind continued to blow it could only move the top of the trees.

So It Is!

 

This Is A 444 Moment!

As I write out this word for the purpose of testing and judgment, I realize that without some reasonable explanation it will mean very little to you, and others may think it strange that Yahweh has once again spoken to me out of a number message.

I want to preface the following remarks by saying that Yahweh, by His Spirit, has been speaking to me for some time, early in the morning for the last two years. I have come to understand that He is preparing me through the discipline of waking me up at a certain time, and then speaking to me only minutes after I sit up on the edge of my bed. I also understand that He is training me to arise to the sound of His voice. I have also been instructed to record the words of instruction that He is speaking to me at that time.

He has been giving me words of instruction, directives and specific prophetic revelations at 4:11 a.m. in the morning. Many of which, I have shared with my friends, family and email list for the past two years. I did not realize at the time, how significant the words of instruction were going to be, and I certainly was not comfortable writing out and boldly declaring some of the things that He shared with me. I guess that could be a part of the training as well. He is calling me to a fearless veracity when it comes to boldly proclaiming His word. After being awakened at 4:11 a.m. for months, I asked a prophetic friend of mine what he thought it meant, and he said that he too was awakened for years at the same time, and it always meant a new download of information to him. I told him that made sense to me and proceeded to share with him what I had been hearing.

The last few mornings, I have been awakened precisely at: 4:44 a.m. with an awesome sense that Yahweh was upgrading me and others with a new operating system. I believe that He is taking us to another level. He certainly is moving by His Spirit. However, these numbers did not mean anything to me at first. Then as I began to pray He reminded me that 4 is the number of earth and that it is the Third Day. He also said, that 444 is about His dominion being established in the earth. 4+3=7. Seven is the number of Heavenly Perfection. 4+4+4=12 and 3×4=12; 12 is the number of Yahweh’s Government and Order, and His government and order are being established in His house. His house will no longer be established by man’s government or mixture of bad theology and another gospel. He alone is the foundation of the house and head of Ekklesia. He said, “I will build MY Ekklesia and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.”

He is bringing correction by the power of His authority. The order of His government is being established in His Earth. I promise you that things are changing in His house right now.

All I can say to those who have been deceived by another spirit, or have received another gospel, this day will be like none that they have seen before. We must shore up what and why we believe now, and we must make our calling and election sure.

If you are a free–born-son of the free woman, I appeal to you to turn your heart, surrender your life and ministry to Yahshua the King, and allow Him to upgrade your operating system, and download His plan, will and purpose for your life. Resistance is futile, and it will only lead to more chastisement and trouble if you refuse to cooperate.

Now, I want to be clear with you about what I presently believe and where I am concerning most of the conflicting eschatology and end-time views that are being propagated as absolute truth in this hour. Firstly, let me say, that most of what is being preached and taught can be easily refuted or disproved by scripture. If you will take the time to study the Bible for yourself and research some of what is being said, you will discover that it has an origin and introduction into the body of Messiah at a time in history that is different from the time in which the first century believers lived. Much of it became popular in the 1800s and beyond, and it is not something that the apostolic fathers or early Ekklesia embraced.

If you are to understand Yahweh’s plan, will and purpose for this day and hour, it will only come by revelation of the Spirit and the Word. You are going to have come up higher so you can get a new view. And then you will better understand by hearing the heart of the Father concerning His will and purpose for His sons and the further establishment of His Kingdom.

If you are confused or in conflict about what you believe concerning what is  going on today or what is going to take place in the near future, believe me when I say this, you are among a vast number of believers who do not know what to believe anymore. With that said, I want to be considerate with what I going to say next. I have personally encountered a number of believers who believe that Yahshua could return any second; but they have not changed their operation in the earth one iota. Sorry, if they really believed that Yahshua was coming any second, they would not be buying, selling, eating, drinking, marrying or being given in marriage J

They would be making themselves ready to receive Him when He returns.

Here is where they are confused.

If you embrace this particular view of the end-times then His appearing is a separate advent from His second coming and you probably forgot that He is not coming back to earth at that time; but it is you who are flying away to rendezvous with Him in the air. Then you will partake of marriage supper of the lamb. After a seven year wedding reception, you will come back to earth with Jesus to destroy the forces of the anti-christ and rule and reign with Jesus for 1000 years. Sound familiar? Well, that’s not all. I have also met a number of believers who believe that all of that is past, and we have already fully entered the Kingdom. If that is not enough, I have also clashed with believers who cannot wait for the anti-christ to show up and have his day, so that we can all be martyred and be done with all of this. No, I am not kidding! Needless to say, I can poke holes in all of those theories and none of them represent the real plan, will and purpose of Yahweh. They are mostly what men have been told to believe based on the flawed theories and false doctrines and old-school eschatology.

This is the Third Day (3rd Millennium from Messiah) and we are under an Open Heaven. (The sons of Yahweh are seeing and hearing things that they have never seen and heard until today). (They are going where no one has gone before). Yahweh is assembling and putting together those who will make up His ‘One New Man’ The many membered, corporate Son is hearing and obeying His voice and coming together in Him. Those who are hearing His voice, are being caught up too a higher realm of living in the Spirit, and they are changed in the moment. The corruptible is putting on incorruption, and the mortal is putting on immortality. We are being perfected and completed in the Third Day. This is a Kingdom view.

We are the manifested sons of Yahweh and the Glory bringing hope to the world. We are the reason that Yahshua lived, died & rose again. All that we were; was nailed to the impaling post in Him, so that all that He is, we might become. Now, we are dead in Messiah and our lives are hidden in Him. We have been bought with a price and our life is not our own. His, work is finished and sin has lost it hold. The sentence of death has been overturned and Hell overthrown.  Righteousness is our standard and Holiness our life. Yahshua is our Sovereign and for Him we will live or die. This is the new song!

There is so much more that I could share concerning what I see coming and why I believe that it will take place in our lifetime; but I want you to understand that anything that does not speak of finishing and completion is not Kingdom understanding. The wise master builder sees the end from the beginning or the finished product. His vision is not impaired by obstacles or obstructions that he might encounter in the process.

On the contrary, they are the things that make the challenge of finishing worth the trouble. Apostolic Kingdom Dominion thinking does not entertain quitting or leaving the jobsite until the last change has been made to the schematic, the project is completed, furnished and fully occupied. I pray that Yahshua will raise up fathers and sons who are willing to stay the course and finish the work that He started.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of Yahweh, these are sons of Yahweh

Romans 8:18-23 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of Yahweh20For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of Yahweh22For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

Galatians 3:26-29 For you are all sons of Yahweh through faith in Messiah Yahshua27For as many of you as were baptized into Messiah have put on Messiah28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Messiah Yahshua29And if you are Messiah’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Galatians 4:22-26 For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. 23But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise, 24which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar 25for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children 26but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.

All I can say is; ‘In earth as it is in Heaven’

The Signet of a Son – Pt 1

By Blake Higginbotham
Signet – H2368 חוֹתָם chôthâm chôthâm kho-thawm’, kho-thawm’ From H2856; a signature ring:—seal, signet.
H2856 חָתַם châtham khaw-tham’ A primitive root; to close up; especially to seal:—make an end, mark, seal (up), stop. Ref. Genesis 38:18, Exodus 28:36, Haggai 2:23
Signet – a seal used officially to give personal authority to a document in lieu of signature the impression made by or as if by a signet
This message is coming out of two ongoing discussions that I have been having with some several apostles and prophets over the past few weeks and months. One of the things that we have been talking about is the difference between influence and impartation as it pertains to real and living relationship. We have also been comparing notes about the limited level of impact involving many of our past relationships, and have come to some soft conclusions as to how we can better reach a fatherless generation, and thereby leave a living legacy. I am not saying that we have all the answers yet; but I can assure you that we have arrived at a much better conclusion concerning our part in the process.

1. All relationship starts with fellowship.

Note: (We can fellowship with most anybody; but how can two walk together unless they agree? Where there is no agreement, there is no added strength. Where there is no added strength, relationship becomes unbearable. Where the power of agreement is present, strength is increased 9000 times).

2. Relationship truly born of the Spirit is ordained of Yahweh.

3. Relationship ordained of Yahweh will be forged in the fire of conflict and tempered by His grace.

4. Relationship is seasoned by understanding, and His love endures forever.

5. Relationship is as diverse and complex as marriage and life itself.

6. Relationship must be nurtured, developed and carefully protected.

Things we have learned about relationship:

One-sided relationship usually involves unrealistic expectations and or obligations, and therefore is co-dependent in nature.
Sons will parrot your soulish and carnal behavior before they will receive your spiritual impartation.

We must remember that while we may be called to the same purpose, that our assignments may be very different. However, if we can find common ground then His love and grace will propel us forward in the work together.

Romans 8:1-17 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Messiah Yahshua, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yahshua has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, Yahweh did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against Yahweh; for it is not subject to the law of Yahweh, nor indeed can be. 8So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please Yahweh. 9But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Yahweh dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Messiah, he is not His. 10And if Messiah is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11But if the Spirit of Him who raised Yahshua from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Messiah from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. 12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14For as many as are led by the Spirit of Yahweh, these are sons of Yahweh. 15For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of Yahweh, 17and if children, then heirs—heirs of Yahweh and joint heirs with Messiah, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. NKJV

Vs. 4-14 He sent his own Son in a human body like ours—except that ours are sinful—and destroyed sin’s control over us by giving himself as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 So now we can obey God’s laws if we follow after the Holy Spirit and no longer obey the old evil nature within us. 5Those who let themselves be controlled by their lower natures live only to please themselves, but those who follow after the Holy Spirit find themselves doing those things that please God. 6Following after the Holy Spirit leads to life and peace, but following after the old nature leads to death 7because the old sinful nature within us is against God. It never did obey God’s laws and it never will. 8That’s why those who are still under the control of their old sinful selves, bent on following their old evil desires, can never please God. 9But you are not like that. You are controlled by your new nature if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that if anyone doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ living in him, he is not a Christian at all.) 10Yet, even though Christ lives within you, your body will die because of sin; but your spirit will live, for Christ has pardoned it.11And if the Spirit of God, who raised up Jesus from the dead, lives in you, he will make your dying bodies live again after you die, by means of this same Holy Spirit living within you.12So, dear brothers, you have no obligations whatever to your old sinful nature to do what it begs you to do. 13For if you keep on following it you are lost and will perish, but if through the power of the Holy Spirit you crush it and its evil deeds, you shall live.14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. TLB

Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of Yahweh.

Galatians 3:26 For you are all sons of Yahweh through faith in Messiah Yahshua.27For as many of you as were baptized into Messiah have put on Messiah. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Messiah Yahshua. 29And if you are Messiah’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Note: The seed will always respond to truth and the heart of a true son will represent by referral at all times. A true son will not faint, or shrink back when corrected or rebuked. In other words, they will not go into depression or rebellion because the love of the truth constrains them, and their desire to please The Father is greater than their need to do their own thing.

When not hearing His voice becomes an option your flesh will find solace in a myriad of false conclusions.

Religion is established and thrives when men filter revelation through their own souls and arrive at some concrete conclusions. Most religion is established to regulate and control it practitioners. All religion is propagated by falsehood and is at very best, a cheap counterfeit.

“Religion is the opium of the people” Karl Marx

Religious distress is at the same time the expression of real distress and the protest against real distress. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions. Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right

“Religion is a crutch for the weak” Unknown
John 18:37b – Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”
Luke 10:16 – He who hears you hears Me, he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.”

Revelation 3: 20-21 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

Note: (We must learn to embrace the Messiah in every true believer and by the Word of the Spirit speak to the incorruptible seed of Yahweh in every son. The Word of the Spirit is life and truth and the heart of the son will only respond to the sound of His voice)

John 5:24—30 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. 25Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of Yahshua; and those who hear will live. 26For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself, 27and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man. 28Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice 29and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. 30I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.
John 6:63 – It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

John 10:27-30 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30I and My Father are one.”

John 12:44-50 Then Yahshua cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me. 45And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. 46I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. 47And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. 49For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.”
1 John 4:1-6 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of Yahweh; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2By this you know the Spirit of Yahweh: Every spirit that confesses that Yahshua Messiah has come in the flesh is of Yahweh, 3and every spirit that does not confess that Yahshua Messiah has come in the flesh is not of Yahweh. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. 4You are of Yahweh, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6We are of Yahweh. He who knows Yahweh hears us; he who is not of Yahweh does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Note: The seed will always respond to truth and the heart of a true son will represent by referral at all times. A true son will not faint, or shrink back when corrected or rebuked. In other words, they will not go into depression or rebellion because the love of the truth constrains them, and their desire to please The Father is greater than their need to do their own thing.

The Everlasting Kingdom

By Blake Higginbotham

For some time now I have been meditating a number of specific questions. I have been asking; where do we go from here, and how do we get there? In other words, I want to know how to proceed in a way that will not represent another feeble attempt in continuing and finishing strong. It is my heart to only do what I see my Father doing, and only say what I hear Him saying. The following revelatory statements represent my present Kingdom understanding and my soft conclusions speak of what I am currently seeing and hearing right now. They very well may be something that will challenge your current paradigms and they could prove to be a game changer as it pertains to the pre-determined outcome.

Note: It is not my desire to overthrow everything that we hold dear and true; but it is what I have been given and therefore something that represents my measure and part.

I have come to understand that it has always been about the Spirit and the Kingdom. Yahweh is a Spirit and the Kingdom has always been His heart. From the beginning of creation until now the Kingdom is come and His will is being done in earth as it is in Heaven. His Kingdom is being advanced by His Spirit, and increased by divine providence.

The covenant seed and true sons of the Kingdom represent Yahweh throughout the earth and are advancing His Kingdom from generation to generation. I think we can all agree that the story of creation and the Garden of Eden, both speak of Yahweh’s original intent concerning the establishment of His Kingdom. He created man in His image, after His likeness created He him. He put His man in His garden, and gave Him Dominion over His earth.

 Ref. (Genesis 1:26-28)- (Genesis 2:7-25)

Psalms 145:3-13 Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable. 4One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts. 5I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works. 6Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, and I will declare Your greatness.7They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness, and shall sing of Your righteousness.8Yahweh is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. 9Yahweh is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.10All Your works shall praise You, O Yahweh, and Your saints shall bless You.11They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and talk of Your power, 12To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of His kingdom. 13Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.

Now, for those of you who reject the validity of the older covenant of the bible as being obsolete or past history, I want to remind you that the term ‘Everlasting Kingdom’ is only mentioned four times in the scripture and three of them found in the older covenant of the bible. That said I want you to look at the tense of the previous passage of scripture. It is speaking out of eternity. It is not talking about a time past or some point in the future; it is definitively speaking of a present tense reality that must be considered and embraced today!

I have come to see the scripture as one book that represents a record of Yahweh’s dealings with mankind and His people from the beginning of creation until now. We must not forget that we did not always have a book and the writings and text that were available did not have all of the chapter and verse divisions prior to publication. The Holy Scripture, The Bible and The Word are the Law of Yahweh’s will and purpose for all mankind throughout every generation. If I were you, I would not be too quick to rule anything out, or take a contrary position on anything, especially the things that are obviously righteous and true. His Word is Eternal, His Kingdom is Everlasting, and we need to consider that we may have put our own twist and limitations on both of them.

Daniel 7:13-14 & 27 “I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. 14Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.

27Then the kingdom and dominion, And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’

I challenge you to read all of these passages of scripture in context, and prayerfully consider the ramifications of what I am saying. When we take away the time and space constraints of the past, present and future, our view of the Kingdom will be inexorably changed forever, and we will begin to see and understand that all we have is the Eternal NOW! For us, there is no past or future, and in order to see and enter the Kingdom of Yahweh, we have to receive it NOW!

Some of you are probably saying; this being true, is it not possible that we have been sold a bill of goods concerning a great many things. The answer to your question is, YES! My question to all of us is, how did the twisted and skewed understanding of those that have gone before us, prevent us for praying in the Spirit and searching out His heart for ourselves? It will not do any good to rail against the darkness now.  Blaming others will not benefit us now. We are without excuse and ignorance is a lack of enlightenment.

We must become lovers of the truth, and search it out for ourselves. If we know who we are in Him and become comfortable in your own skin, then we are well on our way to discoveries that will change our landscapes and worlds. It is never too late to change and lay hold of our destiny and His greater Kingdom purpose.

The good news is, we do not have to wait to die to go to Heaven, and we are not waiting on Him to come again in order to establish His Kingdom. The Kingdom of Heaven is already come to planet earth, and has been manifestly visible for over two thousand years. We are not trying to live long enough to see and enter His Kingdom, and we do not have to worry about tomorrow or fret over what is going to happen next. When the future arrives it will or will not be our NOW! Until then, we must OCCUPY until we come to a better understanding of what it means to be truly Kingdom.

When we view the Kingdom through the eyes of eternity, we will see all that His has in store for us then! Seeing and entering the Kingdom now requires a more responsible approach to how we live and relate. It requires us to accept responsibility for the outcome and end result.

2 Peter 1:2-11 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of Yahweh and of Yahshua our Sovereign, 3as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Sovereign Yahshua Messiah. 9For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. 10Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Sovereign and Savior Yahshua Messiah.
