The crux of our faith is this, what part of His word we do believe without seeing. For more blessed are those who believe without seeing.
Mary, sister of lazerous said “ya I know Lord he will rise again in the ressurection on the last day. Christ told her I am the ressurection and the life” “My reward is with me”, he says in Revelation. I am here. Christ finally told her ” did I not tell you that if you believe you would see the Glory of God”. This Glory is the Glory the son had before the cross. The lamb slain fron the foundation of the world.
God doesn’t need an event to take place for Him to give us something. He always is. When He preached ‘The Kingdom of God is at hand, or “right here” It wasn’t a cliche’. He meant I am the Kingdom, My reward is with me. I am the fulfillment of everypromise, every word of the father. I am the word, the living word! I am the ressurection.
2 Cor17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Ro 8.19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. 24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through u
s: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
6 We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. 2 For He says:
“In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”[a]
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
Your understanding of Abraram as a type of father and Sarah the fathers wife. They bore Isaac. After the father sacrificed His son and after the death of the fathers wife, The father sent His servant (H.S.) to recieve a wife from unbelievers. Signifying Gentiles, the church. The Father very specifically said “Beware and do not take my Son back there. The Holy Spirit indicating that she had to agree totally by faith.
If God the Father establishes a kingdom on earth that is visible, with salvation it defies everything He has done. That way did not yeild faith and without faith it is now and always impossible to please Him. His Kingdom is not of this age, not of this world, not of flesh and blood, not of this temporary creation.
His Kingdom is Holy, sanctified, the reality, us being the alternate reality.
2 Pe10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.[a] 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
He 1 says after Christ purged our sin He sat down,, waiting till His enemies are made His footstoo, and the last enemy to be destryed is death.
Rev 1 7 He is comig with the clouds and all shall see Him, they also who pierced Him.
If His kingdom is eternal it is Him. He is the only eternal. Make according to the pattern on the mnt. With Ez he saw visions of God
