Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” So, what is it?

Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” So, what is it?

That’s in John 8: 36. It is a solemn thing to die but a much more solemn thing to be alive in these times in which we live in for the people identified in prophecy as “they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus” and “have the Spirit of prophecy, which is the testimony of Jesus.”

Rev. 14: 12; 19: 10.

    “Everything in the world is in agitation. The signs of the times are ominous. Coming events cast their shadows before. The Spirit of God is withdrawing from the earth, and calamity follows calamity by sea and by land. There are tempests, earthquakes, fires, floods, murders of every grade. Who can read the future? Where is security? There is assurance in nothing that is human or earthly. Rapidly are men ranging themselves under the banner they have chosen. Restlessly are they waiting and watching the movements of their leaders

The “Fullness of Time” Never Specified Specific Time

The “Fullness of Time” Never Specified Specific Time

  “But When the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the [condemnation] of the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.”  

Gal. 4: 4, 5, N.K.J.V.

Sent forth by the Father, the only-begotten Son of God was “born of a woman” and became the Son of man “when the fullness of time had come,” not a “twinkling of an eye” earlier or later. As the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, He was the subject of the first and beginning of all promises and propheciesof the Bible, coming first as “the seed” (Gen. 3: 15) and at last, “the Lord Jesus,” “King of kings and Lord of lords” in His glorious second coming!

Thank God for Blending Divine Nature with Human Nature Forever!

Thank God for Blending Divine Nature with Human Nature Forever!

 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels [both evil and good], preached among the Gentiles [and the chosen people] believed on in the world, received up in glory [as a Victor over Satan, temptation, death, and the grave].”

1 Tim. 3: 16. 

This Thanksgiving 2019 we should thank and praise God “with all our heart, soul, strength and mind” (Luke 10: 27) for patiently, gradually and progressively unfolding to the astonished eyes of earnest truth-seekers the great mystery of godliness that is revealed in the Creator’s incarnation! Ever after that priceless, precious, precise moment in time that no finite mind exactly knows when and how, humanity quietly and effortlessly blended with divinity for eternity!

Christ’s Humanity Suffered the Superhuman Agony of Soul in Gethsemane

Christ’s Humanity Suffered the Superhuman Agony of Soul in Gethsemane

The shedding of the atoning, sin-cleansing blood of the second Adam “for the remission of sins” may also be thought of as a short yet intense process commencing in the night of His last agony in Gethsemane and culminated Calvary. It began when He “sweated blood” through the pores of His noble human brow in His death struggle at Gethsemane as the guilt of the sins of the world were rolled upon His human nature and the Father “hid His face” from His only-begotten Son, causing the dreadful sense of separation and connection between Father and Son.

The Second Adam: The World’s Sin and Guilt Bearer

The Second Adam: The World’s Sin and Guilt Bearer

Jesus Christ, the “second” or “last Adam” (1 Cor. 15: 45-47)  was subject to the first death of all mortals because He had to die, not merely “walk in the valley of the shadow of death,” which He also did, but temporarily came under it as the one-and-only, once-and-for-all atoning sacrifice (Heb. 9: 25-28; 10: 10, 12, 14) that the Father made of His only-begotten Son at the antitypical altar of sacrifice of Calvary.

The “wages of sin is death.” Rom. 6: 23. In His death the second Adam, in His human nature “made in the likeness of sinful flesh,” did not die because He fell under the power of “him who had the power of death,” that is the devil” (Heb. 2: 14), because of the following:

Mystery of Literal and Spiritual ‘Black Holes’Revealed

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up in glory. 1 Timothy 3: 16, N.K.J.V.

I’m an alumnus of PUCA Class ‘67. I fondly remember the late Reuel Reyes whom I know many of you fellow alumni do as well. During those halcyon years he, to me, was the second budding  younger genius of the campus to the primary one, Dr. Richli.  Reuel was the assistant Physics class instructor (a subject I had zero love for, not much to the delight of my aunt, the late Ester G. Manalaysay AKA as the “Miss Man” to her students of College Physics and other PUCIANs).

Mysteries Revealed, Mysteries Concealed: To Whom and Why?

Mysteries Revealed, Mysteries Concealed: To Whom and Why?

See Luke 8: 4-15. After giving the parable of the Sower to “a great multitude coming from every city,” His first twelve disciples later asked Jesus, “What does this parable mean?”

Note quickly this unfortunate unchanging disparity: all heard the same message from the same Speaker at the same place and time but as the parable verily illustrated, only a very few true disciples inquired further. The great majority of that great multitude, comprising the three of the four kinds of soil illustrated in the parable, did not. Christ’s reply echoed what the gospel prophet declared centuries earlier. It clearly shows that the mysteries of the gospel are declared by the prophets to all, to whom they are revealed even while the same will remain concealed to others and why.

Widely Held Lies Regarding Hell and Paradise

Quotable Quote

“Tomorrow, God willing, we will be in paradise and they will be burning in hell.”

The quote above sounds familiar, right? Certainly. The question is, who said it?

These words were not spoken by any Roman Catholic prelate exhorting recruits to its infamous  Crusades neither by any Eastern Orthodox priest or by any pastor/preacher of the traditional Protestant or modern Evangelical and Pentecostal churches of mainstream Christianity.

From the Seventh Trumpet to the Last Trumpet

From the Seventh Trumpet to the Last Trumpet

     “The second woe is past. Behold the third woe cometh quickly.” Revelation 11: 14.

“Behold, I come quickly.” Revelation 22: 12.

Clarifications need to be made quickly regarding quickly as used in the above verses. Some make the same application of the first with Christ’s last recorded promise, “Behold, I come quickly,” suggesting that the former means a longer lapse of time rather than commencing immediately. John penned these words, they say, in A.D. 70, and today, two thousand years after, Christ has not yet come. That is not quite quick, or so it seems.

The ‘Woe’ Side of the Seventh Trumpet

Quotable Quote

“The Word is a power, a sword, in the hands of the human agent, but the Holy Spirit, in its vital power, is the efficiency to impress the mind.”

 E.G. White, Sons & Daughters, p. 30.

The ‘Woe’ Side of the Seventh Trumpet

If you have been lackadaisically lumbering along on the treadmill of prophetic mediocrity, self-assured, Laodicean-like, that you are already settled and nestled in a safe space, just awaiting the amazing that will happen when Christ returns “any minute now,” please be warned: Though appearing to be a good read from many a religious literature, and easy listening sounds emanating from many pulpits in Christendom, this, in fact, is anything but the sure thing.
