Wednesday: The Final Kingdom — 14 Comments

  1. You see brethren,even after our own deaths, we live with the hope of resurrection. It is important to live according to God's will. Never should we curse Him even when things that we don't understand happen to us. One thing I told myself this day from a famous quote, 'I have learnt to trust the spiritual journey when when I don't exactly understand what is happening. Stay blessed

  2. I am very proud to be a Seventh-day Adventist. Even if we die in the Lord, we have the opportunity to once again come back to life, in a world where there will be no more death, sorrow, pain for all the former things shall pass away and behold all things will be made new. This weeks lesson is very inspiring.Godbless!

  3. From the Kingdom of Babylon to Rome, all those Kingdoms have been destroyed and will be destroyed. It's only ONE Kingdom that will never be destroyed. That's GOD'S EVERLASTING KINGDOM. It will be for those who have died in the Lord, who will die in the Lord or those who will be found living in the Lord. Troublous times are a head of us at the end of this world's history. We may be put to torture and death like job by the kings of these world under their king Satan. Those who seem to be winners will be losers and those who will be like losers will be the winners when God sets His Final Kingdom to restore everything. It's my prayer we make it there to see and share experience together with Job but above all to see God. May God bless u all.

  4. These lessons, God in His providence saw fit to share with all humanity, and so the book of Jobless preserved as one of the spiritual heritages from a far-distant.

    It's our privilege today to learn from the experience of Job lessons of "trust" and "confidence" in God.

  5. It is while we are in these passing kingdoms we are to allow ourself be prepared for that eternal kingdom.Yes Our savior is using even troubles themselves to make us fit for that coming kingdom.

  6. Not only man but the earth is redeemed, to be the eternal abode of the obedient…… So isn't Jesus preparing a place to come and get us when it is all ready? I go to prepare He said. What about the Holy city John saw coming down from Heaven etc in Revelation?

  7. Peggy, I am not sure what the question is alluding to, however if time and sequences are what is in mind, Revelation with it's many symbols and metaphors often require in depth study to apply them to our understanding and everyday vocabularies. If the earth for instance is to be redeemed, we need to look at 2Peter3:10-13. Sometimes a word can refer to more than one intended thought. The focus on the fact that Jesus will prepare a place for the redeemed is unquestionable.

  8. If we had ONLY the book of Job to read, we would NOT believe that Job had no eternal future, for Job speaks of it (Job 19:25-27).

    "Read Daniel 2:44, 7:18. What hope do these verses point to about the end?"

    These verses do not speak about “the end”, but they speak about an everlasting kingdom that has no end. This is what Job referred to in Job 19. With no “bible” in his day, Job knew about God and the resurrection, perhaps from the teachings of Enoch which were passed down by the faithful, even after the flood. God always shows His servants those things which will come to pass. The promise to Adam and Eve has not been lost sight of by the faithful.

  9. This lesson has encouraged me during my time of bereavement; my sister just passed away 3 weeks ago. This lesson has reminded me, of what I already know, that she will be resurrected at Jesus' second coming. Death is not the end of her story; she will be among that "the dead in Christ shall rise first" and she will live for eternity with Jesus and with me. If we all stay on this ship called "Jesus", then whether we die before Jesus comes back or we are among the "alive and remain will be caught up" crowd, we all will "ever be with the Lord", quotes from 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17. I personally can't wait to talk to Jesus, and God the Father, then I'll find David and Ruth and Esther and talk to them about all that they accomplished in their lifetime, as Job did. Of course, I'm going to greet all my loved ones, and ask my sister if she wants to go with me to find these bible patriarchs.

    And for you skeptics that don't believe that there's anything after Death, there's a famous quote that say: "I'd rather die believing in Christ and Heaven, and find out there is none; then to die not believe in Christ and Heaven and find that there is (Christ and Heaven)". I know it's one of those crazy quotes, but it's true.

    May we all continue to hold on to God's unchanging hands!!

  10. Is the purpose of life only to have a hope for eternal life?
    Are we then trying to work our way towards eternity?
    What if there was no eternity were we still going to remain righteous and love God?
    What about when we are now on the new earth with everlasting life, should we no longer have a purpose (as the goal would have been attained)?
    These are questions that I always ask myself and how I should show my love to Jehovah. I always pray that I should not have the goal/objective of being paid for being righteous.

    Enoch at some point was distressed as he thought the righteous and the sinners all are destined to the grave and never resurrect (somewhere in PP). Until this was revealed to him by God that there is eternal life for the righteous, he however hated sin and remain pure and holy.
    If we take Enoch view on righteousness then our purpose of living our goal is to love God and serve him.

    • HI Gari,

      While I agree that loving, worshiping and giving God our all is important, I don't believe He created us and gave His Son to redeem us only to have more beings worship Him. God has always wanted to be with us and He has always wanted us to know Him and be with Him. THAT, I believe, is why he gave us Jesus who is the One and only One by Whom we can have eternal life with God.

      We are not paid for our righteousness with heaven (the "wages" of our "righteousness" is death). Salvation is an unearned gift from God provided by grace so that He can be with us and we can be with Him... forever.
