IT WAS FINISHED AT THE CROSS Part 1

IT WAS FINISHED AT THE CROSS

HAS THE KINGDOM, COME?

Hello All!

If you have read my other posts, and some of the new revelation I am receiving from the Lord, I now need to start providing some Scriptures that help confirm what I was being shown. Again, this is a total turn about for me, in my understanding, as a Christian, of what the Word tells us. Yet, I believed bible scholars more than His Word, because I was too lazy, or did not have the time. That is why I think time is definitely a factor in our walk with the Lord…we choose a million other worldly things over Him, how sad is that.

First I am going to give the Scripture, in the Old Testament, that predict the setting up of The Kingdom of God, and the coming of His Son, the first time, to do just that. Jesus did not fail! How could God fail Himself? The lie that is the biggest lie, has been around since the beginning of time. It is a lie that denies the DIVINITY of Christ. He is with us right now, as He established a pure direct connection with Him at Pentecost, and it is still operating. The Kingdom did come, as His Will was done, and an Eternal Kingdom was established that can never be destroyed, just like Daniel predicted.

Daniel 2:31-45

The dream and its meaning

The king saw an image that represented four kingdoms:

1. Babylon, The head of gold: Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom.

2. Persia, the breast and arms, silver.

3. Greece, the belly and thighs, brass.

4. Rome, the legs and feet of iron, mixed in with clay.

Then Daniel saw the First Coming of Christ taking place after the Roman Empire. It was still during the reign of the Romans that Christ fulfilled and finished His mission, to establish the Kingdom of God on earth. And that kingdom will reign forever and ever.

Dan 2:34 “Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet [that were] of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.”

Dan 2:35 “Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.”

Jesus, the stone divinely made, cut without hands, would crush the head of satan, and take back the deed to this earth. Satan had bruised his heel at the Cross, but Jesus crushed His head. This is what is spoken of as the head wound that healed….it is satan’s head wound that is healed for a short time, when he is let out of the bottomless pit, and his rock falls….you think it is dark now, just wait.

God set up a Kingdom that would never end, at the Cross. It is finished. His Kingdom will go on and on. It is the time, a symbolic 1000 years that he has been given mankind to make a choice to live in His Kingdom or satan’s. He will let the king, the world has chosen, be thier king, for a short time, and gather them all up and destroy them, with the brightness of His Second Coming.

We will look into many other Bible passages that point to this being the case. It is a message that may be sweet to hear, but bitter to our stomachs, as it means that we are in the Kingdom of God, we have a responsibility to keep spreading the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Jesus wants to find us all doing just that.

All for now.

Jesus is all and everything!!!

PS…finding out that the Book of Revelation has things from the past happening as future, because they were to John….but so much of this book is dedicated to telling us what really happened at the Cross!

Hello all! What a long strange trip it has been! I am amazed that through 40 years of Bible studies, Bible College, and attending a multitude of churches, of varying denominations, I have come full circle back to the day when I was “born again”. On that day (Sept 24th 1978) I found the Truth when Jesus found me. I knew in an instant that I could live in eternity by living in the moment with Christ. God is love and loves everyone and wants everyone to be set free in Christ. That the spiritual world trumps the material world and by focusing on Christ one can live spiritually every moment, and death to self brings abundant new life. This was massively life changing! I went from being broken to being whole! I could not contain the love and joy within me. I was a different person and all my relationships changed. And shortly after that earthshaking day, I did sell everything I owned and went on the road proclaiming the JOY of the Good News!! Yet, after three years, I settled down and starting going to church, realizing I had not truly studied the Word of God. I had attended church as a child and as a teen I sang in the choir and taught vacation Bible school, so I knew the major highlights of the Gospel, and pretty much believed what preachers were preaching about God’s Word. Still, I did not find the fire of the Spirit in many of the churches I attended. To me, all the different denominations were creating division not unity in the body of Christ, by chopping up the Word to suit the traditions of men. In 1997 I decided to start reading and studying the Bible for myself. I read books about the “rapture” and the Left Behind series of books and started to see how churches were so divided on these issues and nothing they were teaching really rang true in my heart. I attended Bible College in 2004 and got my Masters in Theology and really got into understanding the End Times as taught by the pre-trib and pre-wrath rapture groups and authors. I was completely sold on this interpretation of the Bible, so much so, that I started writing about it on a pre-trib web site called Five Doves. I got really into waiting for the rapture and trying to figure out the timing and all that, and wrote many many articles about how and when this would happen. It was exciting, I felt that I was learning so much. The more I studied on my own the more I started to see that I did not see in His Word the same things that others were seeing and started to write about what I was finding. As soon as I did this, and started to stray away from the herd of pre-tribbers, I was thrown off the web site. As soon as that happened, the Lord started giving me new revelations and I started asking questions and rely on Him to show me in His Word the answers I was looking for. The major turning point was when I started writing for another web site (Rapture Prophecy Bible Forum) and found out who Israel truly is. That is the foundation for all Bible study…once one knows whom Israel is, one can never go back to dispensational beliefs. That opened the flood gates of revelations from the Lord. He made sure that I would have the time to truly focus on what the Holy Spirit was showing me. I fell down some stairs and broke both of my feet and was not able to do anything but study the Bible. And Study I did!! I was consumed with it, day and night and felt on fire for the Truth. Things that I had believed in for so long just fell away, and everyday I was finding out more and more. Although I started to see that there is no end time rapture, I still believed in a future Second Coming and that we were in the Last Days and how the world was becoming a dark place full of evil. I wrote much about this…even on this blog. Yet, at the same time finding out about the Kingdom of God and how it has already come, and how the Jewish feasts have all been fulfilled in Christ. We are not waiting for the last three to be fulfilled as so many preach and teach. The plan of Salvation was FINISHED AT THE CROSS, and all that was left to be fulfilled was the sending of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost…the 7th and last feast not the 4th…and Christ’s Second Coming in Judgment and the resurrection of the saints. That brings me up to recent time, and my most recent revelations from the Lord and I am shocked at what I have found out! I never even conceived that the Bible was a finished work and that there was no longer anything left to be fulfilled. Yet, that is what I have found out and it is AMAZING how I feel totally set free!! The Truth truly does set one free from the searching and the divisions of the traditions of man!! It all makes so much sense and every verse has taken on a new and heartfelt meaning!! It is GOOD NEWS!! Jesus is our King we can live in His Kingdom RIGHT NOW!! He did ALL He said he would do, when He said He would do it, all we need to do is KNOW HIM. The only event left to happen will happen to each of His children when they pass from this world and into eternity. I was so overwhelmed by my discoveries that I did not know how to approach beginning to write about it. Also, it labels me (and I hate labels in reference to divisions in Christ) I find that I have become a full Preterist. I would never ever have thought this is where my studies would lead, but cannot deny it is where the Lord has brought me. I am now ready to start proving it and that is what I will be doing from here on out. Perhaps the most wonderful aspect of all this is that it has brought me full circle. When I was born again and shown the power of Jesus and relying on Him, I knew it was finished in Him…He was the answer to all. Love is the strongest power in the universe and God is love. Nothing else really mattered. It was not until I got caught up in the “traditions of men” that the path got crooked and the way confusing. Yet, it is so wonderful to find out that His Word tells us the Truth, and that Jesus is the Way, the TRUTH, and the life. That being said, I will be posting studies that helped me understand, and hope that anyone out there that is reading this may find what they may be looking for, as they take this journey OF FINDING OUT FOR YOURSELF. God bless all, and may you be in His love and Light today and always!! JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!! Patti C.
