For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; He will save us. Isaiah 33:22.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

The sanctified life is a life of belonging. It is a wonderful life because of the One you belong to. His Name is Wonderful.

If you live in a monarchy, it is a wonderful thing to belong to the King as part of the royal family, especially as a child or spouse of the King of a strong and wealthy nation. It means you are taken care of for life in the style of royalty. All is paid for and all is lavish and abundant. And it is all yours merely because of your birthright.

When you are in Jesus, who is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, you are My child and in Covenant with Me through Him. And in Him, I have rescued you from the darkness in which you were born from below with Adam’s corrupted seed, recreated you by your new birth by My imperishable Word from above in Him, and transferred you into the Kingdom of My Beloved Son. And He is the Light of the world. You have the light of life.

Joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:11-14.

Now is the reign of My Son, but ultimately all will be handed over to Me for I am the Judge, the Lawgiver, and your King.

But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death. 1 Corinthians 15:20-26.

It is a wonderful thing to belong to the King! A wonderful, beautiful thing to belong to so great, good, and loving a King. I own everything and when first Adam’s lease hold interest (which he gave out to the devil) My Son is taking back the fee simple ownership, He alone is worthy to break the seals to the title deed and receive back the earth, and He will rule and reign with you from Jerusalem for a thousand years, but then the end will come and I create new heavens and a new earth. And what do I do then?  I then give it to you, My true family, who are with Me.

You know this for I have shown it to you already in the book of My prophet Daniel.

If you recall, Daniel and his friends, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar and deported from Jerusalem to Babylon as prisoners of war. One night, Nebuchadnezzar had a dream and no one could tell him either the meaning of the dream, or even what the dream was about. Nebuchadnezzar, who was impatient and had a problem with his temper, do he decided to put all his soothsayers and advisors to death unless they came up with the accurate answer.

My servant Daniel simply handed the problem over to Me and went to bed once he and his friends had cast the care on Me and prayed for the answer. And during the night, I gave the answer to Daniel, which he then went to give to the king. When taken to the king he asked Daniel, “Is this true? Can you tell me what my dream was and what it means?” Daniel replied, “There are no wise men, enchanters, magicians, or fortune-tellers who can reveal the king’s secret. But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and he has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in the future. Now I will tell you your dream and the visions you saw as you lay on your bed.

 “While Your Majesty was sleeping, you dreamed about coming events. He who reveals secrets has shown you what is going to happen. And it is not because I am wiser than anyone else that I now the secret of your dream, but because God wants you to understand what was in your heart. In your vision, Your Majesty, you saw standing before you a huge, shining statue of a man. It was a frightening sight. The head of the statue was made of fine gold. Its chest and arms were silver, its belly and thighs were bronze, its legs were iron, and its feet were a combination of iron and baked clay. As you watched, a rock was cut from a mountain, but not by human hands. It struck the feet of iron and clay, smashing them to bits. The whole statue was crushed into small pieces of iron, clay, bronze, silver, and gold. Then the wind blew them away without a trace, like chaff on a threshing floor. But the rock that knocked the statue down became a great mountain that covered the whole earth.

“That was the dream. Now we will tell the king what it means. Your Majesty, you are the greatest of kings. The God of heaven has given you sovereignty, power, strength, and honor. He has made you the ruler over all the inhabited world and has put even the wild animals and birds under your control. You are the head of gold. But after your kingdom comes to an end, another kingdom, inferior to yours, will rise to take your place. After that kingdom has fallen, yet a third kingdom, represented by bronze, will rise to rule the world. Following that kingdom, there will be a fourth one, as strong as iron. That kingdom will smash and crush all previous empires, just as iron smashes and crushes everything it strikes. The feet and toes you saw were a combination of iron and baked clay, showing that this kingdom will be divided. Like iron mixed with clay, it will have some of the strength of iron. But while some parts of it will be as strong as iron, other parts will be as weak as clay. This mixture of iron and clay also shows that these kingdoms will try to strengthen themselves by forming alliances with each other through intermarriage. But they will not hold together, just as iron and clay do not mix. During the reigns of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed or conquered. It will crush all these kingdoms into nothingness, and it will stand forever. That is the meaning of the rock cut from the mountain, though not by human hands, that crushed to pieces the statue of iron, bronze, clay, silver, and gold. The great God was showing the king what will happen in the future. The dream is true, and its meaning is certain.”

Then King Nebuchadnezzar threw himself down before Daniel and worshiped him, and he commanded his people to offer sacrifices and burn sweet incense before him. The king said to Daniel, “Truly, your God is the greatest of gods, the Lord over kings, a revealer of mysteries, for you have been able to reveal this secret.”

Then the king appointed Daniel to a high position and gave him many valuable gifts. He made Daniel ruler over the whole province of Babylon, as well as chief over all his wise men. At Daniel’s request, the king appointed Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to be in charge of all the affairs of the province of Babylon, while Daniel remained in the king’s court. Daniel 2:1-49.

What I revealed to the king, then to Daniel, and through Daniel to all of you who believe is what will happen in the end to all the great kingdoms of the earth. These ungodly nations will be shaken to nothing and My Son, as the chief and cornerstone, will smash them all to dust and rule and reign until He hands the Kingdom over to Me.

And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.” This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:26-28.

And with respect to My Son’s ownership of the earth kingdoms, I tell you that the day I raised Him from the dead as the firstborn of many brethren, I gave Him the nations as an inheritance.

“I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron, you shall shatter them like earthenware.’” Psalm 2:7-9.

And what does He do with the nations? He gives them to His joint heirs.

He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. Revelation 2:26-28.

And ultimately it is all handed over to Me and then what do I do? I give it all back to you, but this time forever for I will judge Satan and take his dominion over the earth away from him and he will be locked up in the lake of fire with all who insisted on going with him forever. Never to deceive men again.

But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.’ Daniel 7:26-27.

I made the earth for you and I do not intend to take it away from you. This time it will be yours forever, for all you who are with Me at that point have passed the test and chosen life and good rather than death and evil. It is for those who belong.

Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of that last day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 3:11-13.

You who are in Jesus are with Me always and everything I have is yours. You are My children and, as such, you are My heirs, but because you are in Me in Him, you are as He is before Me, so you are joint heirs with Him. And I have given Him everything. All I have is His and all He has is Mine. And that includes you. For when you believed in the good news of your salvation, I sealed you in Him by the Holy Spirit as a pledge and I gave you to Him to raise up on the last day.

I love you. Live the sanctified life. You know not the day or the hour, and blessed is the one I find busy about My business when I come. I will put him in charge of large affairs, yes, nations. It is a wonderful thing to belong to the King. Walk worthy with Me and I will show you how to be for eternity.

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. 2 Peter 3:10-18.
