At this moment a huge tragedy has hit Haiti. This earthquake is devastating. From the TV news, It looks
like every single home has been damaged in the area hardest hit. Bodies lie everywhere. They are without food, water and medical needs at this time. A poor country and getting there with help is taking time.
Heat will be taking its toll as well.
This reminds me how much we need God’s New Kingdom to come. A time of no tears, no pain and suffering. A time when light will come into the lives of humans and HOPE!
Let me recap, what we know so far:
There are two supreme beings that were before all other life. The two are as one. They are both God, but one was called the Word.
Then, they planned and created angels. Angels are spirit beings. They do not die, are not physical. These were made to be servants, to God. Assisting when and where necessary. But 1/3 of these angels became rebellious and turned against the perfect plan of God. They did not want to have this plan come to fruit. Lucifer became Satan, or “adversary”. He and his followers rule earth temporarily until some one else comes to take over this rule on earth.
God then planned to create humans, to live on the planet Earth. God made the earth, the angels through the word, who later became the first born Son Jesus Christ.
The Gospel of Christ is NOT just about Christ. It is what Christ said! And He Always talked about the Kingdom of God coming!
“ 1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.”
“14 Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom[a] of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1
Jesus taught every where the “Kingdom of God”. He commanded (not suggested) his apostles go and teach the Kingdom of God.
“1 Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2 He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” luke 9:1-2
So what was the Gospel?
It is vital to your life now and later to know this Gospel and BELIEVE.
Luke 17:21 has different versions of the Kingdom of God. Some say it is “in” you but the correct translations say the Kingdom of God is in your midst! Meaning Christ was among them. And He IS the Kingdom Of God. He is the coming King of a New Kingdom.
Jesus is the 1st of many to come into the God family. Jesus came and lived on earth as a human, was killed and rose to qualify as King of Kings. Jesus will rule over all humanity in place of satan. Since Jesus is Son, God is now the Father.
A king is a ruler who rules over all His Kingdom.
Human reproduction shows the salvation of mankind. First you are a seed. A embryo, no sight, not yet fully human, but you live in a womb. Safe and warm, there you grow, until the time of your birth. Upon birth, you are given sight, you are man/woman. Just like upon your calling, and answer to God. You are a begotten Son of God. Just a embryo with the seed of the Holy Spirit. You will grow until your birth, (resurrection) into a spirit being like your Father in Heaven. Upon the return of Jesus Christ.
The gospel was that Jesus Christ was coming back!
Coming back as KING of ALL this world. Over All kingdoms, and other rulers. Bringing with him a new order of life. One in perfect harmony, Peace, JOY, HAPPINESS, No evil, no earth shaking tragedies, no more sickness and poverty and want.
This is the GOOD news of the coming Kingdom Of God!
