The Kingdom Has Come

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. (Lu.18:17)  Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (Lu.12:32)  And he said unto them, verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come, life everlasting. (Lu.18:29-30)   For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Rom.14:17)   For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power, (1 Cor.4:20).   Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptable with reverence and godly fear, (Heb.12:28).   For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, (2 Pet.1:11).   And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,  Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ:  for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto death. (Rev. 12:11-12).

A Confession  of Faith

I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord, Master and Savior.   By faith in Christ Jesus I am forgiven,  cleansed,  healed  and made a citizen of His eternal kingdom.  Jesus Christ  has redeemed me from the curse of the law of sin, sickness, weakness and eternal death through His death on the cross for  me.  I believe in the Trinity of  one God: Almighty  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  I believe that Jesus Christ is the Creator made flesh, The Word of God who was begotten as the second Adam.  He was  born of  a  virgin,  died for my sins,  rose for my justification  and is coming again soon,  in great glory, to establish His Kingdom on earth. I believe in the new birth from above,   the baptism in water,  and the baptism in the Holy Spirit.   I confess that the blood of Jesus Christ has cleansed me from all my sin,  I am now made the righteousness of God in and through Christ Jesus.  I confess that I can do all things through Christ who is my strength as I abide in Him.   I confess that this world is not my home.  I confess that I  am a pilgrim in a foreign land and I look  for that certain  return of my Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.   I confess that there is but one holy universal and apostolic Church of Jesus Christ and all those who are born from above are brethren and citizens in His kingdom.  I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is being perfected by the Holy Spirit through the apostles,  prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers and other ministries of His Church  until  all the faithful come into the unity of the faith and the bond of peace and are changed into the image and likeness of Jesus Christ.  


Basic Statement of Doctrine

The Holy Bible is the authoritative Word of God and is only source of pure truth and doctrine for faith and practice for a Holy Spiritual Life and Christian Discipleship.  Some scriptures reveal Godís sovereign and eternal point of view through the prophets.  Other scriptures reveal manís responsibility and accountability of freewill in time also by the same prophets.  Eternity is one dimension and Time is another.  The Holy Bible covers both positions of truth in infinite detail.

God is manifested in Trinity a form, 1 John 5:7: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit similar to water as liquid, solid and vapor.  The balance of Godís nature is in Love, Holiness and Power.  This balance is essential for the full revelation of Jesus Christ, Eph.4:1-16.

The Creator, Word of God became incarnate (or flesh) and was placed in a virgin by the power of the Holy Spirit and was born in Bethlehem according to Micah 5:2.   Under Godís judgement Jesus died in our place and for our sins.  He was raised from the dead by the power of God for our justification.  He shall come again, in great power, as Jesus the Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  The Creator, Word of God is now Jesus the Christ and His reign shall be forever.

The ultimate victory of Christ Jesus will be seen in the final victory over death at the end of this age.  At that time the disciples of Christ Jesus will be taken out of the world into the eternal presence of God.  Then the Kingdom of the Lord  Jesus Christ shall be set up for a millennium and the earth shall be at peace.  After that time the beginning of eternity will begin with a new heaven and a new earth in righteousness where there will be no more tears and the former things are all passed away.

The only means of redemption from the penalty of sin is the Atoning Sacrifice of Jesus Christ and our willingness to accept this wonderful provision from God and yield to Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Judgement is based upon creative knowledge, Rom.1:18-.  God is honor bound to bring all to Him who seek, ask and knock in every corner of our world who respond to His creation. Lk.11:9.

The redemptive work of Jesus Christ also provides for the healing of the human spirit, soul and body in answer to believing prayer.

Disciples may also be filled with the Holy Spirt and learn to enjoy the fruit, gifts and ministries as given of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit can give the power to live a holy life and to minister effectively in the Kingdom to those who truly make Jesus Christ the Lord of their lives.

Events are closing for the final judgement in the history of mankind.  Those who have yielded to Jesus as Lord will become brethren in the eternal family of God.  Those who live egocentric lives and reject the Lordship and forgiveness offered through Jesus Christ will be separated from Godís presence, creation and light and exiled  into isolation and outer darkness for eternity.  To reject the Creator is to also reject His creation.  God will not force any one to come under the authority of the Kingdom of Jesus the Christ.  Freewill is the most precious gift in Godís creation outside of Jesus Christ.   God has made all souls eternal and with a freewill.  Only freewill makes love real and of value to God in eternity.  He  is building a forever family of love to which we have all been invited in and through Jesus Christ the Lord.
