Kingdoms Clashing

In the distant past, perhaps around 3 B.C.E, a child was born that would change the world. He came from the Kingdom called “Heaven”. In that Kingdom His Father was God. He was sent to a place called “Earth”, a place that He had created. He was the Word God spoke and the Word of God became flesh in the body of a teen-age girl called Miriam. At the command of the angel Gabriel her husband, Joseph, named him Yeshua.

He grew up in Nazaret, Israel. At the age of 33, “to fulfill all righteousness”, he was baptized in the Jordan river by His cousin John. His Father in Heaven, as any priestly Israeli father would do when His son was commissioned to the priesthood, spoke: “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased.”, thus His ministry began.

The Spirit of God took the next step to fulfill all righteousness, He drove Yeshua into the wilderness to “be tempted of the devil” “Tempted in every point as we are”, Yeshua prevailed over the adversary. He called Himself the Son of Man, because He took back, as a man, as representing mankind, everything Adam gave away. “He came to destroy the works of the devil”, the god of this world system.

Yeshua “went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil.” He taught that the Kingdom of God had come to earth; He showcased it. What He saw the Father do, He did. There is no sickness or disease in the Kingdom of Heaven, none was permitted in the Kingdom of God when He was around, except by men who did not believe, how He marveled at their unbelief.

The Kingdom of God is the kingdom of light. Men come to the light so their deeds may be exposed. “All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God”; “There is none righteous, no not one.” The Kingdom of the adversary thrives in darkness; “men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil”. These two kingdoms have clashed from the beginning and will until the end.

Every kingdom has a king, a ruler, a sovereign, to whom the subjects swear allegiance. A kingdom is not a democracy, subjects do not have a vote. Yeshua is the King of the Kingdom of God, God has declared that “every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord.”

When Yeshua walked upon this planet, He literally defeated the “god of this world”, satan. Adam had given authority over Eden to the adversary. But, Yehsua said: “All authority has been given to me in Heaven and on earth. in my name go”. By this command He gave power of attorney to His disciples and it was through them that the church age began.

We are still in the church age. Yeshua is still building His church. There is still time for repentance and entry into the Kingdom of Light, the Kingdom of God. There is only one entrance, one door, Yeshua said, “I am the way, I am the door.” It is only by faith in Yeshua and turning from sin that a man can enter into the Kingdom of God.

“If a man believes in his heart and confesses with his mouth that Yeshua is Lord, he shall be saved.” Saved from what? From the punishment of those who do not believe, who deserve everything that the Kingdom of darkness has in store for them, every curse, every evil diabolical thing beyond what men can imagine.

Fueled by hatred of God, the adversary has plans to take God’s throne. Though his demise is plainly spoken of in God’s written word, yet he works to gain the souls of men that he may use them for his evil purposes. Promising men anything, he deceives them, only when it is too late will they learn that he is a liar.

You cannot pass go and collect a hundred dollars in Hell, neither are there virgins awaiting a man in heaven. Hell is not a place where you and your buddies can gather, play poker and drink. There is no light, no love, no one who cares about you, there is only endless torment and misery for the fool you were to believe you could escape by some means other than “The Way” God prescribed. I would advise you to choose today which way you want to go.

From the day that Yeshua entered into the earth realm, the clashing of the two kingdoms began, the Kingdom of Light versus the Kingdom of Darkness. We are approaching the final war. It is for “all the marbles”. The adversary of God believes that he can win and eventually he will put it all on the line. However, darkness is always at the mercy of light. The battle is over before it even begins because the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, Yeshua ha Maschiach is the declared winner of the battle, His Father decreed it and it cannot be reversed.

God is God and there is no other. He is El Elyon, the Almighty, whom no foe can withstand. One fights against Him to his own peril.

The darkness in this world is getting deeper; it is everywhere for those with eyes to see. It appears that darkness is prevailing at the moment, but take heart if you are a believer, it won’t last, breakthrough will come…according to Isaiah the prophet. The Light will arise. I am seeing some of that, even though it be just a glimmer. Elijah’s servant, Gehazi, saw a cloud the size of a man’s hand, but in a short time it became a deluge. The deluge of the Spirit is coming. Look for it, wait for it, for it will surely come.

Blessings upon you, in the name of Yeshua,

Yeshua in Hebrew = Jesus in English
