Thy Kingdom Come (Part 2 of 2)

As we continue in part 2, let’s first take a look at why our Lord must set up His kingdom first among the heathen.

Since the Lord established his people with Abraham, He has always had the intent of setting up His kingdom during “this” world. Ofcourse the evil one has effectively blocked those plans even to this day. His people have succumbed to Satan’s giles at almost every turn in history. As we read in part 1 , EGW specifically mentioned that Israel was to accomplish His will, through  His established  kingdom. They utterly failed. Not to be outdone, by Satan or mankind, our King  has remained firm  — that His church kingdom will be established through out the world while the heathen exist. But not for “our” sakes is He going to do this, He must clear His name and show the heathen world just who He is and what He can do in their site!

In ( Ezek. 36:23-24 ) we read ” And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am the Lord”, say the Lord God, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes.”

“For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land.”

The Lord prefaces the above words with verse 22 “..I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went.”

Let’s just take a stroll back into time. How about one of the first “Christian” people to profane His name by claiming that sin is forgiven, even though you can continue in it, without repentance. These were known as the people holding the doctrine of the Nicolaitans(Rev. 2:15).  How about the dark ages? The inquisition for example. Look at whose name they chose to use, as their God during those horrible crimes—Our Lord Jesus Christ! Fast forward to today. The church which proclaims the keep ALL His Commandments, the SDA church is allowing all kinds of abominations in their midst (active dishonoring within His temple just to name one). When we profane His word, we profane His name.

(Isaiah 52:5) “..And my name is blasphemed continually every day.”

At this point it would be fair to ask –Why would our Lord not just put an end to this wicked world and be done with evil? To start fresh with heaven, then an earth made new?

This question is answered as only our Lord’s prophetess can explain.  ” The children of Israel were to occupy all the territory which God appointed them. Those nations that rejected the worship and service of the true God were to be disposessed. But it was God’s purpose that by revelation of His character through Israel men should be drawn unto Him. To  all the world the gospel invitation was to be given.

Through the teaching of the sacrificial service, Christ was to be uplifted before the nations, and all who would look unto Him should live….As the numbers of Israel increased, they were to enlarge their borders until their kingdom should embrace the world.”

 So we see our Lord’s intended purpose of His people, His church. He had a clear objective to have His church kingdom “embrace” the world.

Let’s look at further scripture proclaiming His pre-millenial kingdom. In (Isaiah 11:6-10) we gain  much insight, “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and young lion and the fatling together; And the little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

And in that day ther shall be a root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the people; For the Gentiles shall seek Him, and His resting place shall be glorious.”

As we can see from  the very clear words above, this is describing a most heavenly situation, although not in heaven. God’s love and knowledge is known by His people and even the animals! Yet we see “Gentiles” exist in this world. Now who in their right mind can say there will be “Gentiles” in heaven or the earth made new?

Even though this pre-millenial kingdom light was not clearly given to Ellen White, like it was Victor Houteff, we see a gleam of light given her on it.  She writes “Your work, my work, will not cease with this life. For a little while we may rest in the grave, but, when the call comes, we shall, in the kingdom of God, take up our work once more.”(Test. for the church, Vol. 7, page 17)

This is quite revealing if we truly comprehend what she is saying. After she “rests” in the grave, she will be called forth to do more work “in the kingdom of God”. What was her work while on earth? Was it not reaching out for souls to bring to the Lord’s salvation? So her statement “our work” can only mean that work which she had done. So our Lord will have her partake in the final Loud Cry to reach those in babylon, along with many faithful who accepted the 3 angels message post 1844 (this is another area of an indepth subject we may do in future).

We must keep in mind that no prophet or prophetess has been given “all”  the light in regard to prophecies. EGW states “But no man, however honored of Heaven, has ever attained  to a full understanding of the great plan of redemption, or even to a perfect appreciation of the divine purpose in the work for his own time” (Great Controversy, p.343)

 In Jeremiah, we find first, the description of Ezekiel 9 church judgement and then the subsequent mention of the kingdom.  “Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goes forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind; It will fall violently on the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the LORD will not return until He has done it, and until He has performed the intents of His heart. In the latter days you will consider it.”(Jer.30:23-24)

At the same time,” says the LORD, “I will be the God of all the  families of Isreal and they shall be My people.”(Jer.31:1)

Notice after  His fury deals with the wicked and then “at the same time” He is claiming a  people who will be His. And this is perfectly understood in “the latter days”–that is today! These prophecies are at the door.

In Ezekiel we see some other striking evidence that this kingdom will be in the midst of the heathen nations. In Ezekiel , chap. 36 , our Lord describes much of what He will do for His church kingdom, in verse 28 it reads ” Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.”  Then further in verse 36 it reads “Then the nations which are left all around you shall know that, I, the LORD, have rebuilt the ruined places and planted what was desolate. I, the Lord, have spoken it, and I will do it.”

In the above we see His people will possess Israel again. But notice it was desolate and then it will be rebuilt. You may ask — How is Israel being referred as desolate? There shall be the long dreaded world war in Israel.  The Lord shall allow the bombs to make desolate the area in the near future. In fact here is scripture that fortells this.

“Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together, O nation undesired, before the decree is issued, the day passes like chaff, before the LORD’S fierce anger comes upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger comes upon you! (Zeph. 2:1-2)  Then in verse 4 and after,  it describes  the land of “Gaza” and the surrounding areas as being utterly destroyed. This can be none other than the current “Israel”(undesired nation) and the whole surrounding areas.

So in order for our Lord to bring His people back to Jerusalem, the current land occupiers must be driven out. His word declares this will come to pass.

Please keep in mind that this church kingdom will indeed embrace the world, but at the same time a counter kingdom will be setting up. The Satanic false “Sunday worship” system. So as Satan sees the miracles and wonders being performed by the 144,000, he’ll bring up his deceived followers to perform counterfiets. This will be similar to when Moses did the miracles and Satan had his men imitate them in front of Pharoah. This will be the time of great wonder and confusion. Many will be truly confused, unless they are grounded strongly in God’s word (ie. His Sabbath Commandment).

Let us close with one more quote that shows powerful evidence that His kingdom will soon be upon this earth. “For on My holy mountain, on the mountain height of Israel,” says the Lord God, “there all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, shall serve me;there I will accept them, and there I will require your offerings and the firstfruits of your sacrifice, together with all your holy things.

Has there been a time , ever in history since Ezekiel’s time where “all” the tribes of Israel has come back to His land–Israel? No. This is yet to happen. The many tribes of Israel  are assimilated through out the world. And when it does the “Gentiles” will behold it.

Continuing it reads “I will accept you as a sweet aroma when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles.” (Ezek. 20:40-41)

There you have it, as clear as you can get. The “Gentiles” will be here on earth in this current world to behold God’s Glory. Like we mentioned earlier, let us read and believe Scripture as it reads. For His word is made for the humble, pure, simple of heart, that they may know His will.

 We must thank our Lord for this present truth light. The veil has been lifted for us to understand the big picture and just what our Lord’s plans are. For me personally, once I came to this understanding of His end time plans, it cleared up so much confusion in the said verses. I sure hope you’ll prayerfully seek our Lord and His understanding. These events are shortly to happen and He’s now calling for His elect to step forward and say ” Your will is my will Lord, count me in”.

In Christ, Whom we serve, —Rob
