Conflict Between Kingdoms

by admin ~ August 3rd, 2012. Filed under: Brandenburg.

We’ve got a conflict between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world. The kingdom of the world is led by Satan and interacts with the lost and the flesh of believers to oppose the plan of God. Satan mainly wants to take people down to Hell with him. God will save people who will be with Him forever, glorifying Him in everlasting bliss. The way into the kingdom of God is to be born again. God changes a person into His moral image through regeneration. People who were dead in sin are now alive unto Him. The kingdom of God is a kingdom with a King. To be born again, allegiance must change from the world, self, and Satan unto God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus said that if one were to come after Him, he must deny himself and follow Him. This is the reception of Jesus as King or Lord, which means that you understand that He is the Messiah, the only Savior. Following His every Word is impossible without the new covenant in His blood in which He changes the hearts of those in subservience to Him. Those are now His slaves. They serve the benevolent King, but that is their new position in Him, one of servants, even as those who will be exalted must be abased, even as Jesus Himself humbled Himself in His incarnation. Those slaves of Him are in His Word, knowing and doing whatever it is God wants Him to do.
