When Is Jesus Lord
Jesus is Lord over me when I give up self-rule. He then reigns over all that I have -- All that Iíve earned and had lordship over before I was born again. It passes out of my authority and comes under the authority of the King. There are no private land owners or property owners in the Kingdom of God. Everything belongs to the King and I become His steward over those things. My life becomes new in every sense of the word and unless I understand that -- I will not be able to see the Kingdom of God that is offered to me when I accept Jesus as Lord.
Today -- Christianity teaches that I can accept Jesus as my personal Savior and be saved. In the minds of most people that do that -- they think -- now that I have accepted Jesus as my Savior I can go out and try to live right and when I die -- I will go to Heaven.
They look forward to going to Heaven and spend most of their lives just trying to be blessed by being lord over themselves -- praying that Jesus will help them along the way. This leads them to be looking for a future Kingdom and they never realize that they are sent here as ambassadors to establish the Kingdom of God now -- here on the Earth.
If you search the Scripture -- you will find nothing about accepting Jesus as your Savior to be saved. Christianity puts that forth and most people have fallen into that Lie and are wondering how come following Jesus is so hard because they donít seem to have any power from God to help them along the way. They are just as sick and broke as the lost people around them and the lost people around them are not able to see much difference between their own plight and that of the Christians around them; They are not an example of an ambassador of the Kingdom that Jesus brought with Him when He came and said:
(Mat 12:28 KJV) But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
To be born again I must receive Jesus as Lord. When I do that -- He will save me from myself and the system of the world.
So to see and experience the Kingdom of God now -- I must die to the other kingdom I live in now (the one before I was born again); That same one that I continue to live in because I havenít been told that there is another Kingdom that I can live in now (the one Jesus brought with Him when He came to the Earth).
The Cross of Jesus Christ is death to self-rule. Having accomplished that-- rising from that grave into what I call the new Kingdom of God or what I call the Omega Kingdom of God will then become my life from the dead: Resurrection life.
Omega, o'-meg-ah; the last letter of the Gr. alphabet, i.e. (fig.) the finality:--Omega.
I call it the Omega Kingdom of God because it is the final and everlasting Kingdom of which will never end. That Kingdom will never have anything enter into it that can defile it and there never was -- or ever will be -- anything enter into it without first dying to its own way to be blessed.
That is why God calls the Omega Kingdom an everlasting Kingdom. Itís the one Jesus was born into because He was born without Sin. Jesus lived in that Omega Kingdom all of His life because he was born with a heart to do His Fatherís will and not His own. Jesus never lived in the realm of self-rule. When Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist the evidence of the presence of the Omega Kingdom in Him was revealed by the miracles Jesus did.
The thing that defiled the Alpha Kingdom -- or the first Kingdom -- was The Lie that said to Lucifer: You can bless yourself if you will become your own lord.
How do we know that The Lie said that to Lucifer? Because that is what he tried to do and that is The Lie that he repeated to Eve that made her fall. That Lie was fathered by Lucifer when he gave it his life to live through him.
(John 8:44 KJV) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in The Truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
When Lucifer believed that Lie and acted on it -- he became Sin. At that moment -- Sin entered the Alpha Kingdom of God; That Lie began to work like leaven in the whole Alpha Kingdom of God.
