A Kingdom Out of Every Tribe Nation and Tongue

According to the Bible the eternal purpose of human history is to bring forth a community of people out of “every nation, tribe, tongue and people.” While living here upon the earth these communities of people may decide to become inhabitants of God’s kingdom. This knowledge of the Kingdom of God is the main purpose Jesus of Nazareth came to make available to all who will accept Him and believe in His name. Eventually this community of people who become born from above or born again will reign with Him in the eternal future of the cosmos in a Kingdom where God rules over all.

In the new heaven and new earth, God’s perfect righteousness will finally prevail because God will dwell there with and among His people. Peace will be constant. Love of serving God will never cease to exist in the eternal Kingdom of God that will arrive in the Age to come.

Everything in the universe is under God’s control and continues to exist by His will. Time for the Earth is limited, and God governs the schedule. Our world – the cities and countryside of every continent and the oceans with all that is in them – and the far reaches of the vast universe will not remain forever in a fallen and darkened state of choas.

The world continues today because of the greatness of God’s patience. Because of His tender mercies and long-suffering, all that will be His may come to repentance and take their rightful place in the Kingdom of the Lord To-Day. However before this occurs there is a harvest to be gathered. Souls to be won over to God’s way of living life..

This is where you and I as true followers of Christ come into the picture. We live in “The now but not yet”, “The land of the in-between”. We now live in a place between The Old Testament (Egypt) and the New Covenant Promised Land (Kingdom). We live in the Wilderness where we see a glass darkly.

Today while living in this “present evil age” there are people who have not yet received or experienced Christ as their Lord and Savior. Many of these fellow earth dwellers have not been told about this glorious Kingdom of God that will one day be established here upon the earth. Unfortunately the only source of spirituality that many of these have been exposed to, are the man-made religions of the world.

In today’s Global society there are many who will not listen to anything that comes from any religious book or from a Bible for no other reason than this Ancient Book of Life has been replaced by many man-made concepts and technologies. The Holy Scriptures have been shunned, marginalized and degraded for centuries. The wisdom contained in the many spiritually gifted teachers of times gone by has been traded in for a new form of dealing with the many problems which exist in today’s cultures. The wise sayings and words of wisdom from the ancients like Buddha, Confucius, Jesus of Nazareth and many others who taught a culture of life and love has been in many instances looked down upon.

For years the young have been indoctrinated to believe that mankind is evolving to a place where humanity will come up with all the solutions to the many problems (Humanism) that face us in a world where not only the population is growing exponentially, but a planet where people are living longer. The seemingly impossible task of eliminating, hunger, disease, war, violence, pestilence, greed, racism, sexism, hatred has all been put upon the shoulders of the brotherhood and sisterhood of man to solve on their own. Therefore there is no need for a God from which to seek help and assistance.

The sad part is this utopian global society where many are striving for a better world already exists but has not yet been discovered by many who would benefit from living in such a state of existence. You may ask where does such a world like this exist?

Many have lost their desire for what they deem is man-made religion but really is Truth.

God has no feet but mine; He has no hands but mine. No voice but mine.

According to the Bible the eternal purpose of human history is to bring forth a community of people out of “every nation, tribe, tongue and people.” While living here upon the earth these communities of people may decide to become inhabitants of God’s kingdom.

Eventually this community of people who become born from above or born again will reign with Him in the eternal future of the cosmos in a Kingdom where God rules over all.

As Kingdom Citizens this should be our daily driving force, to be that Kingdom Preacher, a Kingdom Bringer, A Kingdom Liver!
