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. Daniel 7:27.
The government of the kingdom of Christ is like no earthly government. It is a representation of the characters of those who compose the kingdom…. His court is one where holy love presides and whose offices and appointments are graced by the exercise of charity. He charges His servants to bring pity and loving-kindness, His own attributes, into all their office work….
The power of Christ alone can work the transformation in heart and mind that all must experience who would partake with Him of the new life in the kingdom of God…. In order to serve Him aright, we must be born of the divine Spirit. This will purify the heart and renew the mind and give us a new capacity for knowing and loving God. It will give us willing obedience to all His requirements. This is true worship.
“Thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken. But there the glorious Lord will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams…. For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us…. And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity” (Isaiah 33:20-24).
“Be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create,” the Lord exhorts; “for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying…. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands…. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord” (Isaiah 65:18-25)

Dear Friends,
Once I heard a story about a man who had stopped going to church. He felt he could worship God at home just as well. The pastor came to visit him. As the man invited him in, he was expecting a lecture. He got none. Instead, the pastor sat near the blazing fireplace and said nothing. After a while, he walked over the the fire, took the fire tongs, pulled out one of the blazing coals, and laid it down on the hearth. Then he went back to his chair. Minutes passed. The man was puzzled. What sort of pastoral visit was this? Both men said nothing. They just watched that glowing coal. More minutes passed. The coal began to cool. Soon, it was no longer glowing. It became nothing more than a blackened hun! k of charred wood. At that point, the pastor again took the tongs, picked it up, and returned it to the fire. Within moments, the coal was blazing once again. The man then understood the pastor’s actions. He had preached a sermon far better through that illustration than he ever could have with words. The man returned to church.
“Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, . . . Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Heb 10:24, 25
