“My Kingdom is not of this world…”
(Spoken by Jesus of Nazareth – differentiating between His Kingdom and the kingdoms of this world)
“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.”
The Prophet Daniel, a devout Jew and high-ranking civil servant who lived, served, and advised King Nebuchadnezzar during the Babylonian Captivity, (598 – 538 B.C.), served a total of 72 years from 606 to 534 B. C., during which span of years, he wrote his visions, over 500 years before the Birth of Christ.
It was the Jewish Prophet Isaiah who, under the inspiration of the Spirit of God, wrote. . .
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgement and with justice from henceforth and forever.”
How is it that so called “enlightened” men and women in high places of power, academia, and government, who are wise in their own sight, refuse to grapple with the impossibility of any human 2500 years ago, foreseeing future events with such clarity unless he was inspired by an omniscient, omnipresent, and intentional Creator?
The only truthful answer is … like those who cried “crucify Him, crucify Him,” they did not then, and do not now, believe that Jesus of Nazareth was, by His own testimony, recorded miracles, and all reasonable inquiry and accounts, God incarnate, the Son of God, and the Saviour of the world.
In their defiance of a holy and just God, to indulge the lusts of their flesh, and pride of life, they pursue power, and control to persuade Americans they don’t need God, nor do they want to hear anything to the contrary that might threaten their power and plan to “transform America” into a nation made in their chosen image, not God’s.
As Jesus said, His Kingdom is “not of this world”. It is an everlasting Kingdom, of justice, and peace, not a kingdom of fallen men who act as gods with worldly ambition, murder, deception, and unimaginable animosity and rebellion against the One True God.
And therein lies the problem in America. We have elected men and women who have rejected the eternal truths that would set all men and women free. Follow these “truth deniers” and you will never in this life, be truly free, nor your children.
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.”
The Gospel of John, chapter 14 verse 6.
“Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass away.”
The Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24 verse 35
“Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, and His Redeemer, the LORD of hosts; I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God.“
In case you failed to read the previous list of Prophetic Scriptures about the Birth and Life of Jesus, the Jewish Messiah…. please read thoughtfully the below Prophetic Scriptures.
“… the LORD himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” i.e. “God with us”.
“….for he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form or comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and aquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did not esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for out iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”
“…who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgressions of my people was he stricken…he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD.”
