Since Adam and Eve’s creation, the Kingdom of YHWH has been a real kingdom encompassing the entire universe and Heaven. On Earth it is a Government ruling over its citizens, the ekklesia or called out–separated–ones. (The Greek word ekklesia is translated church in English.) …His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion is from generation to generation, saith Nebuchadnezzar, a Gentile king (DAN. 4:3).
This Kingdom was up and down before Daniel’s time. In the heavenlies it never fails, but on Earth in the hands of fallible men it can be brought pretty low. From the time Yahshua came as Saviour and King, the Kingdom of YHWH on Earth was never to be brought low again: And in the days of these kings (of the Roman Empire) shall YHWH of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom…shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever (DAN. 2:44).
Plainly, YHWH’s Kingdom is as literal a one as the Chaldean and Roman Empires, two of those It breaks into pieces and consumes. It was to take over the governments of the nations of the world just as did these empires the kingdoms before them.
The King of this newly exalted Kingdom went, as we know, on a journey to a far country (MATT. 25:14). The earth, as it were, was leased to its inhabitants–all who live, have lived, or will live here until the King’s return. That includes you and me. While away, a portion of that population became totally apostate, and set about building a kingdom of their own in a futile effort to overthrow YHWH’s Kingdom. Others (the false or apostate church) remained in the true Kingdom but committed fornication with the second kingdom. They established direct political union with the enemy kingdom rather than separating from it according to their King’s command. This spiritual prostitute relied on the evil worldly government instead of on their King in Heaven.
Out of foolishness, ignorance, and pure evil, the beautiful earth YHWH created was changed and destroyed by the enemy government. Before they rise to the pinnacle of their power, annihilating the planet completely, the almighty righteous Judge starts to act. He must renovate and cleanse the earth of these evildoers and their corrupt environment in preparation for His final return.
This cleansing and renovation starts, as we know, towards the end of our era when the Great Tribulation strikes. Then …The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of YHWH, and of His Messiah; and He shall reign forever and ever (REV. 11:15); in the midst of the LAST SEVEN YEAR PERIOD. The whole scenario of the beast’s One World (enemy) Government and the great whore (apostate or false church) is part of Father’s plan simply to sort out what is to be levelled and what should be saved for the true new age–of Messiah.
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins nay be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of YHWH; And He shall send Yahshua Messiah… Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which YHWH hath spoken by the mouths of all His holy prophets since the world began (ACTS 3:19-20). Restitution means restoring to a former state. We will look at what will be restored in a future post, for we have not yet got to the CRUX of that which this blog is about yet. However, here is just a hint:
Imagine the King of glory coming in all His splendour, power, and majesty to usher in that long-awaited and prayed for world peace, abundance, well-being, and joy. Gone will be wars, destruction, genocide, poverty, suffering, and pain. No killing, murder, hatred, or bloodshed anymore. Marriages that last in love for one thousand years in purity and faithfulness. No need for locks and keys as there will be no stealing. Truth, honesty, sincerity, openness will be on all lips and in all hearts. No satanic nature. No divorce, juvenile delinquency, crime, no need for jails, police, armies. No sickness or accidents. Doctors, hospitals, medicine, spectacles will be obsolete. Everyone will be filled with vibrant good health, vitality, energy, and enthusiasm.
No longer will animals hunt, kill, or be wild. Leopards, wolves, elephants and grizzly bears will be led around and played with by children. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain (IS. 11:19). The earth will again be like the Garden of Eden (IS. 50:3).
Yes, Yahshua Messiah will surely come (REV. 22:20), bringing with Him a new age when even fish survive in their watery home unmolested; children don’t rebel, answer back, misbehave, get kidnapped, or go walkabout as prodigals; and husbands love their wives enough to die for them but never have to.
