The Daily Word of Righteousness

Revelation 21:9, continued

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (Ephesians 4:4-6)

Now, here is an important thing to notice. The eternal House of God is the new Jerusalem. It will not be the new Washington D.C. or the new Paris or the new London. It will be the new Jerusalem.

What does this tell us? It tells us that the gifts and callings of God are without repentance. Salvation began with the Jews and will end with the Jews.

You don't like that? Jesus was born a Jew. You better get used to bagels and lox. God has not forgotten His ancient people.

The gates are named after the sons of Jacob—several of them absolute scoundrels. What does that tell us? It tells us God does what He wants with whomever He wants however He wants.

We all are good independent Yankees in America. Don't tread on us. We are rebels, we are, and if we don't like what is going on we will change it. The clay will rise up and march around, potter or no potter.

Well, this doesn't go with God. The proud He is able to humble. If the Christians in the United States do not humble themselves, repent of their sins, and call upon the Lord, we are going to get a little help from the Lord.

I hope I'm not here when the fun starts.

People, enough of this two-kingdoms, Gentile Church in Heaven nonsense. Either we are part of Christ or we are not. If we are part of Christ then we are part of the Kingdom that soon is to invade the earth, drive out the wicked, and bring to pass all the beneficial situations described by the Hebrew Prophets. Once you are part of the Kingdom your racial identity ceases. Paul taught this plainly.

If you are not part of the Kingdom of God then it doesn't matter whether you are Jewish or Irish. You will be dealt with by the Lord according to the things you did while on the earth. If Christ was presented to you and you rejected Him, then you are in trouble big time.

Christ has all the authority, all the power. God loves Him and has given everything to Him. Don't be a fool. Humble yourself and bow the knee to Christ. He is able to vaporize you with a glance. He holds the stars in their courses with His word!

I don't know whether you and I will be alive tomorrow, or even if the sun will rise in the east. But one thing I do know. There is coming a day when the peoples of the earth will look up to the sky and there they will see the most staggering spectacle ever to confront the human race. Down through the new sky will descend a glory brighter than the sun, an overwhelming rainbow of colors never before seen on the earth. The city will continue to descend until it comes to its eternal resting place on a high mountain of the new earth.

This is the Christian Church, the Body of Christ, the eternal Tabernacle of almighty God. This is the throne of God and the Lamb.

This is the new Jerusalem, the holy city.

I join my prayers with you that we will either be a part of that city or at least be among those who will live forever under its guidance and blessing.
