The Kingdom of Christ

the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ

 The process to join in the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ starts with the coming of God’s kingdom in the hearts of the believers. And through a new covenant (1Co 11:23-26/Lk 22:16-20/Heb 8:8-13) declared by Jesus during the last supper, it bears fruit in the end times by participating in the kingdom of our Lord and Christ Jesus, which is prophesied in Revelation 10:7 and is opened in Revelation 11:15 as follows.

“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” <Rev 11:15>

 “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” <Rev 10:7>

The believers that join in the kingdom of our Lord and Christ, are those who overcome the authority of Satan (Isa 44:5) and the partnering disciples of Jesus that are written in the book of life (Php 4:1-7). They are the brides of Jesus as well as believers of a church, who participate in the wedding party of the Lamb

 The true meaning of a church is not the church building any more but the community of the spiritually genuine ones who answer the calling as the kingdom and the priests of the Lord with the grace of Jesus, are rescued from the deceivers of Satan, work together to achieve goodness with the spiritual vision opened by the work of the Holy Sprit(Ro 8:28-29), and will participate in the first resurrection (Rev 17:14).

<Rev 17:14>                                                                                                                                     14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful

 Through the history of mankind, there has been many divisions caused by those who have been tempted by and belong to Satan and confusions and chaos that the partnering workers of Satan pursue. However, transcending these dark years, secularized churches have not been overlooked and, in the end times, a new religious world with a few believers has been united through the words of the one and only truth symbolized by olive oil lighting up the seven gold lampstands. Such a world in which Jesus is directly involved and God governs is the kingdom of our Lord and Christ.

<2 Pe 3:7>                                                                                                                                               7. But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

“But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto You. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” <Lk 12:31-32>

 Therefore, we come to have definite hope and calling simultaneously when we realize ourselves that we are the holy ones who belong to God (1 Pe 2:1-9) as members of the kingdom of the Lord and Christ(Rev 11:15/Col 1:9-14/Eph 5:5) by transforming into the temple of God where the Trinity God resides.(Lk 22:16-20/2 Co 3:3-6/Mk 14:24/Heb 12:22-24/Heb 13:20-21)

Since the salvation of the whole, holy body that reaches the first resurrection bears fruit by joining in the kingdom of Christ in the end times, every believer chosen will become a servant of the Lord, who is the kingdom of the Lord and the priests that are like kings. This is achieved according to the journey of the religious world that constitutes the brides community of Christ.

 Therefore, it is time for us to independently and actively participate in the ultimate plan of God to renew all things rather than being mere bystanders (Rev 21:5) as we spread the lively oracles of Christ to all peoples living on this earth and bear fruits of the kingdom of our Lord and Christ.

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,                                                                                                                           6.

<Rev 5:9-10>                                                                                                                                            9. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;                                                                                10. And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

<1Pe 2:9>                                                                                                                                                 9.

Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.

<Lk 12:31-32>                                                                                                                                      31. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.      32. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

<Isa 65:14-17>                                                                                                                                       14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.                                                                                                     15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name:                                                                                        16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.                                                                17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.


Here, the another name of “the servants” of God (Rev 1:1) is “Bride” of Jesus.(Isa 65:15)

About the Church in Philadelphia(Rev 3:7-13)

The name of  “Phila Church”  is short for “The Church in Philadelphia”. The name stems from “The Church in Philadelphia”, which is revealed in the Bible-Rev 3:7-13
 
Also the Philadelphia is a term based on the word from a combination of Phil, which means love, and Adelphic, which means sisters who have same husband, it symbolizes the bridal symbiotic community of Jesus with love.(Rev 21:9-10) It means the brides network of Jesus like Beulah(Isa 62:4),
the Holy City as follows.

<Rev 21:9-10>                                                                                                                                          9  And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.                                                                                                                                              10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.

<Rev 21:17>                                                                                                                                             17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

<Rev 21:14>                                                                                                                                            14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

The Beginning of the Kingdom of God and Fruit-bearing of the Kingdom of Our Lord and Christ

– The kingdom of God is the concept of individually coming to our hearts, and the kingdom of Christ is the concept of community in which we join in the bridal symbiotic community of Jesus Christ and reach the eternal life.

 “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” <Rev 11:15>

The Beginning of the Kingdom of God

Fruit-bearing of the Kingdom of Our Lord and Christ

<Lk 8:1-3>                                         1. And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,                                  2. And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,                                      3. And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which  ministered unto him of their substance. <Rev 11:15-17>                                                  15. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his  Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.                                                                 16. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17. Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
<Lk 17:20-21>                                    20. And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of  God cometh not with observation:   21. Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
<Rev 1:9>                                                        9. I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God,  and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
<1Co 3:16>                                         16. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? <Ps 145:11-13>                                             11. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;             12. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;                 13. Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations
<2Co 6:16>                                        16. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. <2Ti 4:1-5>                                                       1. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;                      2. Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.         3. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;                    4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.                                                              5. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
<Mk 9:1>                                            1. And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have the kingdom of God come with power  <Col 1:9-14>                                                   9. For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;                               10. That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increased                     11. Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;                                                       12. Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:               13. Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:            14. In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
<1 Co 3:9>                                         9.  For we a e labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. <Isa 26:1-2>                                                   1. In that day shall this song be sung in he land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks                                                         2. Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
<Mt 21:43>                                           43. Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation <Eph 5:5-9>                                                    5. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolaterter, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.                                                    6. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.                                                     7. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.                                                               8. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:                                           9. (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
<1Co 6:19-20>                                19. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?                                                 20. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? <Da 2:44>                                                     44. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever
<Mt 6:33>                                        33. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. <Da 7:13-14>                                                     13.  I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.                                    14. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
<1Pe 2:4-9>                                      4. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,                                            5. Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.                                     6.  Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.        7. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,                          8. And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.                               9. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
<Da 7:25-28>                                              25.  And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.                          26. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.                    27. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.                                              28. Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.
