Christ’s Government on Earth – Reigning As Kings and Priests

In C.S. Lewis’s The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the Narnian mouse Reepicheep says of Lucy, “She’s not a little girl! She is a queen!” The statement serves as a reminder that those of us who are in Christ, while we might look and feel quite ordinary, are kings and queens according to scripture. In the previous two posts, we took a look at what the Bible says about about the role and functions of both kings and of priests, and how Jesus restored these two offices, that were previously separate. The ministry and person of Melchizedek were also examined. The bread and the...

Christ’s Government on Earth – The Royal Priesthood

Christ’s Government on Earth – The Royal Priesthood

In understanding our identity and authority in Christ, we are able to bring His righteous and life-giving government to earth.  Previously, we highlighted what it means to be in covenant with the Almighty, and how the names of God reveal His character and thereby, Who He Is and what He does. Meditating on His names is a form of worship, and in this way we know Him better and He is magnified (becomes bigger) in our eyes. Our walk with God, and our prayer life in particular, suffer because we forget who we are in Christ. It’s easy to regard ourselves as common. And we are not common. We are...

Christ’s Government On Earth: The Wonder of Covenant

“I wish Christians in the West understood their position better – who they are in Christ,” a brother from India responded when I asked him what was the greatest difference that he observed between the church in India and the church in the United States. His response – if you’ve followed this blog the last year – is the message God has been reinforcing through other brothers and sisters across denominations and from all over the world: it is time for Christians to step up and reign with Christ right now in the authority He has provided. Just what does that look like,...

Preparing the Way for Christ’s Government on Earth

Did you ever meet someone who came to know Christ late in life? Did you notice how uninhibited they were in their faith and things of the Spirit? More than their church-grown counterparts, my observation is that these believers generally exemplify Jesus’ statement that “Unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt 18:3). My husband is an example of this. He is able to accept what the Bible says right off, without having to fight through layers of doctrinal arguments and doubt. To him, it’s all very simple. I am grateful that I grew up...

Wisdom, wealth, and what lies ahead

Wisdom, wealth, and what lies ahead

If indeed economic collapse is looming for America and Europe, as discussed in my last blog, and no one knows exactly how that will look, how should the church respond? What was intended for evil “God meant for good, to bring about that many people should be kept alive,” Joseph prophesied to his brothers in Egypt (Genesis 50:20). As I’ve prayed, researched, and discussed with some “experts” – both Christians and unbelievers – the instability of our economy and the American Dollar, I am not fearful so much as expectant. My mind continues to return to...

The Shemitah, the Fourth Blood Moon, and a Coming Storm?

The Shemitah, the Fourth Blood Moon, and a Coming Storm?

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn made headlines with his best-selling book The Harbinger, which connected dots between ancient biblical prophecy from Isaiah and America’s current culture, including precise tie-ins to events such as 9/11 and the market collapse of 2008. Now, Cahn is making headlines again with his discourse on The Shemitah, the seven year Biblical cycle which America’s own economy has seemed to follow: In 1973 there was the Arab Oil Embargo which saw long lines at gas pumps In 1980 there was a savings and loan crisis In 1987 a day called “black Monday” saw a stock market...

The Two Kingdoms: Understanding Your Role in Spiritual Warfare
