The Desert Shall Rejoice

Isaiah 35 is a beautiful Messianic chapter with applications that are multifaceted. While some of it may have application to present day Israel, and it may apply to the future Messianic reign, there is also application to the present Messianic reign which is in the hearts and lives of the church of the redeemed, those […]

A Prayer Of Confidence

A Prayer Of Confidence

In Psalm 17, David references his own situation in which enemies and evil men have oppressed and surrounded him. He calls on God to be his vindicator, appealing to Him for His help. There is a neat thing about Scripture, where in portions like this, it focuses on the then present time and people, yet […]

Our Victory

Our Victory

Have you ever noticed how many “natural” things have so much symbolization of the spiritual, and how God uses these things familiar to our understanding to teach us the realities of their spiritual counterpart?  One such picture is found in Ephesians 6, beginning at verse 11, using the armor and battle attire of a first […]

Glory In The Kingdom: Part 2

Glory In The Kingdom: Part 2

Today we are thinking about the glory of God’s kingdom as revealed in Jesus when He came into the world through human birth. John 1:14 says it like this, “…the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” […]

Glory In The Kingdom: Part 1

Glory In The Kingdom: Part 1

Psalm 145:11 “They [the saints] shall speak of the glory of your kingdom, and talk of Your power.” The word glory (depending on its context) can have an array of definitions; here it speaks of the splendor and copiousness of the manifestation of God in His kingdom. And since presently His kingdom is established in […]

Fellowship In The Kingdom

Fellowship In The Kingdom

King Darius had it right when he said “…His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end” Daniel 6:26. Truths about the kingdom are woven like a cord throughout the Scriptures, so don’t be surprised if from time to time you see kingdom truths come up […]

Service In The Kingdom

Service In The Kingdom

Today we are looking at another aspect of the kingdom of heaven, which is kingdom service. Hebrews 13: 15 which we touched on in the meditation about worship in the kingdom, draws our attention to the praise and worship aspect of living as part of that kingdom, but then verse 16 directs our attention to […]

Worship In The Kingdom

Worship In The Kingdom

We are continuing to look at various aspects of the kingdom of God (or of heaven). Being part of a kingdom means living by the regulations of that kingdom. In Hebrews 12:28 we read, “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace by which we may serve God […]

Greatness In The Kingdom: Part 1

Greatness In The Kingdom: Part 1

  As we continue our series on the kingdom of heaven, today we are looking at greatness. Greatness in God’s kingdom runs counter to the notion of greatness in our fallen world where it is associated with exaltation; in the kingdom of heaven the way up is down. In Matthew 23:12 Jesus said, “And whoever […]

Power In The Kingdom

Power In The Kingdom

Jesus having been baptized by John in the Jordan River – thus identifying Himself with humanity, and leaving an example of righteousness for us to follow – the Holy Spirit came upon Him like a dove, and led Him into the wilderness for an extended period of fasting and prayer where He combated the power […]
