January 24 – Jesus Will Establish A Permanent Kingdom For The Saints
Jesus Christ will bring a permanent solution to the world crises. God has commissioned him to establish a perfect kingdom that will be void of all evils. The scripture stated, “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “That I will raise to David a branch of righteousness; a King shall reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell safely; now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS” (Jeremiah 23:5-6).
There exist many crises in the world today but God has a perfect solution for each of them. At his own appointed time, Jehovah will make this earth come to a complete stop, and he will destroy it. He will recreate a new earth that will be void of evil, and it will last eternally. God’s new earth (and new heaven) will only host his saints and angels. Meanwhile, the process of becoming a saint of God started with Jesus Christ, since he is the Son of God and the Savior of the world. Christ himself will be the ruler of the new earth and the new heaven to come as the scripture revealed, “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also, there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God, Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 20:1-5).”
Not everyone who lives in the present earth will partake in the new earth that God will soon create, but only those who have confessed their faith in Jesus Christ will be qualified. That is, whoever has reserved his or her faith in Jesus will make it to the new earth and the new heaven to come. People who have rejected the fact that Jesus is the Son of God will be found unworthy to be part of the new planets of God; their portions will be in hell fire where they will suffer God’s punishment for their sins eternally.
Meanwhile, since the stake of rejecting Jesus Christ is too high, it is important that everyone makes the decision to confess him as his/her personal Savior to be saved. It is unfortunate that Christ will not advocate for people who have rejected his testimony on the last day of judgment. Christ stated, “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).
Anyone who desires to partake in the new earth and new heaven to come must confess Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Savior. The person should not procrastinate since the end may come when he had least expected! Confess Jesus Christ today and be saved!
Dear God, I am very sure that this world will not last forever; I know you will soon destroy this earth, and create a new one for your saints. Therefore, I pray that you please count me worthy to partake in the new earth and the new heaven to come. I know that you required all people to confess Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior to be saved, therefore I confess him as my personal Lord and Savior! I am sorry for my sins, and I repent from them. From now on, I dedicate my complete life to serving Jesus Christ; I will serve him throughout the days of my life, so help me God! For in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord I have prayed. Amen!
