With Christians being persecuted all over the world, it is certainly a hard thing to remain eagerly faithful. Satan wants to destroy Christianity! But, “he that endures unto the end shall be saved.” Why endure? What is in it for us?
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever.” (Revelation 1:5-6).
Our destines are to be born with a spirit composed body and rule with Christ for 1,000 years!!! Do we believe the Bible is inspired by God for our learning? Look what Jesus inspired in Revelation 20:4, “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them; and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (last of v.5) This is the first resurrection.” Now v. 6, “Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and they shall reign with Him a thousand years.”
What a joy to understand that we will serve under Christ in His kingdom for 1,000 years. But where will this reign take place? Where the problems are!!!
“And they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and has made us unto our God KINGS and PRIESTS: and we shall reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:9-10).
Just think, you and I will teach people the true laws of God to prevent sin. We will teach them the true Holy Days of God, and eliminate the pagan holidays that the world engages in today.
The whole world will little-by-little learn of God’s ways when He sends one of His Sons or Daughters to become a king or priest. The human race will accept them as a mighty one because they will have a spirit composed body that cannot be assassinated. Notice how it will be:
“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain [nation] of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains [larger nations], and it shall be exalted above the hills [smaller nations]; and people shall flow unto it [God’s kingdom]. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and NONE shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken it. For all people will walk every one in the name of his god [saint with a new spirit composed body], and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God [God the Father and Jesus] forever and ever” (Micah 4:1-5).
Do you understand your destiny? You and I will rule over nations, states, counties, cities, etc.!!! The people under our jurisdiction will look to us, and we will point them to God the Father and our elder brother Jesus Christ.
There will be no more war, rather total peace. There will be no more pornography, rather pureness in heart. There will be no more murder or adultery, rather we will teach doing good to neighbors and stay away from the lust of the eye, lust of the flesh and the pride of life. This world will be transformed in righteousness rather than sinners. This will be a glorious time in man’s history when the Sons of God live and reign under Christ 1,000 years
Have you ever dreamed of such a future for yourself? Jesus has offered it to you. Will you accept the “Gospel” or Good News of the coming kingdom of God? If you do, you have a wonderful future before you. God be with you in accepting this wonderful offer!!!
