Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.

And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb
(Rev 22:1)

For His Glory!


The Coming Kingdom of God

God’s Rule on Earth

Rev 1:1 (NKJV unless indicated) The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place… The Revelation is about the second advent of Yeshua (Jesus) and His coming rule on earth.

Thy Kingdom Come… Thy will be done on earth…

God’s Kingdom exists today and we look forward when it will be established on earth!

Rev 11:15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"

At Yeshua’s first advent He was not to rule

John 18:36 CJB Yeshua answered, "My kingship does not derive its authority from this world's order of things. If it did, my men would have fought to keep me from being arrested by the Judeans. But my kingship does not come from here."

Today (as we* await the coming Kingdom of God) it appears current events reveal wickedness trying to destroy everything about YHVH’s** Kingdom and His Church. Rest assured God is in control - Trust Him - He has given His people all that is needed in times like this!

Comment from the editor of the (Jan/Feb) Sabbath Sentinel:

"… The editorial (of a previous issue) was only meant to show that we are facing an evil that we don’t recognize because Satan is so adept at his deception. There are many who are ignorant of his devices, but we should not be."

"Satan’s goal is to destroy God’s children. He can do so by getting us to abandon His Way. He can do that by putting evil people in place who will destroy what God has wrought in this great nation through the debasement of our currency and destruction of our God given right to worship Him as He decrees. If he kills the body, he thinks he wins. If he gets us to abandon the Way he definitely wins. We need to be aware of this great evil rising up around us so we are prepared for what God will do to save us. For some of us, that will be in the rest of the grave. For some of us, God will supernaturally act. Let’s stay aware and listen for His voice."

This we know…

YHVH (see** below) says

Prov 8:15 "By me kings reign, And rulers decree justice.

Dan 2:20 Daniel answered and said, "Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him. 21 And it is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men, And knowledge to men of understanding. 22 It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.

Daniel 4:17 (NAS) "This sentence is by the decree of the angelic watchers, And the decision is a command of the holy ones, In order that the living may know That the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind, And bestows it on whom He wishes, And sets over it the lowliest of men."

We are all exposed to the corruption, evil, selfishness and the pulls of the flesh - yet the saints of God are to be subject to the governing authorities

Rom 6:16 Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?

Rom 13:1 Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore he who resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same; 4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath upon the one who practices evil. 5 Wherefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience' sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. 7 Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.

1 Peter 2:13 (NAS) Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority…

Titus 3:1 (NAS) Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed,

What about when rulers are contrary to The Word of God?

Acts 4:19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard."

God is above all

Acts 5:29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: "We ought to obey God rather than men.

Rom 16:17 Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them. 18 For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.

Whenever possible we should be rightly involved in today’s governing at whatever level


Dan 6:4 Then the commissioners and satraps began trying to find a ground of accusation against Daniel in regard to government affairs; but they could find no ground of accusation or evidence of corruption, inasmuch as he was faithful, and no negligence or corruption was to be found in him.


Gen 41:40 "You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you."

What governmental authority will define the coming Kingdom?

David’s Throne will be re-established at Yeshua’s return

Jeremiah 23:5 (ESV) "Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.

And Priest

Jer 33:21 then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levitical priests, My ministers.

Yeshua shall reign forever

Exod 15:18 "The LORD shall reign forever and ever."

Ps 146:10 The LORD will reign forever, Thy God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!

Luke 1:33 and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever; and His kingdom will have no end."

Rev 11:15 … "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever."


Isa 24:23 Then the moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed, For the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, And His glory will be before His elders.

Mic 4:7 "I will make the lame a remnant, And the outcasts a strong nation, And the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion From now on and forever.

How long?

1 Corinthians 15:25 (ESV) For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.

If we are His People?

Matt 18:2 Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, 3 and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

Then What?

2Tim 2:12 If we endure, we shall also reign with Him; If we deny Him, He also will deny us;

Rev 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6 and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Rev 5:10 "And Thou hast made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth."

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.

Rev 22:5 And there shall no longer be any night; and they shall not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God shall illumine them; and they shall reign forever and ever

If then we are to reign and rule with the Son of David maybe David has some wise instruction for us today; for he was a prophet during his reign.

Yes be wise and pray:

Ps 64:1 A Psalm of David. Hear my voice, O God, in my meditation; Preserve my life from fear of the enemy. 2 Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity, 3 Who sharpen their tongue like a sword, And bend their bows to shoot their arrows -- bitter words, 4 That they may shoot in secret at the blameless; Suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear. 5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter; They talk of laying snares secretly; They say, "Who will see them?" 6 They devise iniquities: "We have perfected a shrewd scheme." Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep. 7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; Suddenly they shall be wounded. 8 So He will make them stumble over their own tongue; All who see them shall flee away. 9 All men shall fear, And shall declare the work of God; For they shall wisely consider His doing. 10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and trust in Him. And all the upright in heart shall glory.

David - a man after God’s own heart

Acts 13:22 "…He raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, 'I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My heart, who will do all My will.'

David’s attributes and character

1Kgs 3:6 Then Solomon said, "Thou hast shown great lovingkindness to Thy servant David my father, according as he walked before Thee in truth and righteousness and uprightness of heart toward Thee

1Kgs 9:4 "And as for you, if you will walk before Me as your father David walked, in integrity of heart and uprightness

Are we listening?

The Book of The Revelation is God’s message to the Churches - It is a challenge to the churches to listen to what the Spirit is saying - A message to wake, clean up, and stand up.

Next Time, more about the Kingdom of God.

What can we learn today by what was written centuries ago?

"Think of your future; you’re going to spend the rest of your life there."

"The importance isn’t in doing great things, but doing small things in a great way."


In the next 10 to 20 years; the Green Way: (Will we make it?)

1 - Auto repair shops will disappear…

2 - A gas/diesel engine has 20,000 individual parts… An electrical motor has 20… Electric cars are sold with lifetime guarantees and are repaired only by dealers… It takes only 10 minutes to remove and replace an electric motor…

3 - Faulty electric motors are NOT repaired in the dealership but are sent to a regional repair shop that repairs them with ROBOTS…

4 - Your electric motor malfunction light goes on … so you drive up to what looks like a car wash, and your car is towed through while you have a cup of coffee… Then your car comes out on the other side with a new electric motor or component…

5 - Gas stations will go away…

6 - Street corners will have meters that dispense electricity… Companies will install electrical recharging stations … in fact, they’ve already started in the developed world…

7 - Smart major auto manufacturers have already designated money to start building new plants that build ONLY electric cars…

8 - The "Coal Industries" will go away… Gasoline/oil companies will go away… Drilling for oil will stop… So say goodbye to OPEC… The Middle East is in trouble…

9 - Homes will produce and store more electrical energy during the day then they use… It will be sold back to "The Grid"… The Grid will store and dispenses it, to the industries that are high electricity users. Has anybody seen the Tesla roof??

10 - A baby of today will only see "personal cars" in museums. The FUTURE is approaching faster than most of us can even handle…

11 - In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide… Within just a few years, their business model disappeared, and they went bankrupt… Who would have thought of that ever happening??

12 - What happened to Kodak and Polaroid will happen in a lot of industries in the next 5-10 years … and most people don’t even see it coming…

13 - Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later, you would never take pictures on film again? With today’s smartphones, who even has a camera these days?

14 - Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975… The first ones only had 10,000 pixels but followed Moore’s law… As with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment in the beginning … before it became superior and mainstream in only a few short years…

15 - It will now happen again (but much faster) with Artificial Intelligence (AI), health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs…

16 - Forget the book, "Future Shock," welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution…

17 - Software has disrupted and will continue to disrupt most traditional industries … (in the next 5 to 10 years…)

18 - UBER is just a software tool (they don’t own any cars), and are now the biggest taxi company in the world… (Ask any taxi driver if they saw that coming…)

19 - AIR-BNB is now the biggest hotel company in the world … (they don’t own any properties) … Ask Hilton Hotels or the Marriott if they saw that coming…

20 - Artificial Intelligence (AI): Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world… This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world … (10 years earlier than expected)…

21 - In the USA, young lawyers already don’t get jobs (because of IBM’s, WATSON) … you can get legal advice within a few seconds so far the basic stuff … with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans… So, if you’re studying law, STOP IMMEDIATELY… There will be 90% fewer lawyers in the future, what a thought and only omniscient specialists will remain

22 - WATSON already helps nurses diagnosing cancer … it’s 4 times more accurate and many times faster than human nurses…

23 - Facebook now has a 'face recognition' software that can recognize faces better than humans… In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans…

24 - Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self-driving cars were already here… In the next few years, the entire auto industry will start to be disrupted… You won’t want to own a car any more as you will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination…

25 - You will not need to park it; you will pay only for the 'driven distance' and you can be productive while driving. The very young children of today will never get a driver’s license and they will never own a car…

26 - This will change our cities because we will need 90% to 95% fewer cars… We can transform former parking spaces into green city parks…

27 - About 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents (worldwide). That includes distracted or drunk drivers… We currently have one accident every 60,000 miles driven… However with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in about 6 million miles… That will save a million plus lives, worldwide each year…

28 - Most traditional car companies will doubtless become bankrupt… They will try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car … while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, and Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels…

29 - Look at what Volvo is doing right now … no more internal combustion engines in their vehicles starting this year with the 2020 models… They are using all-electric or hybrid only (with the intent of phasing out hybrid models in the not too distant future)…

30 - Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi are completely terrified of Tesla… Look at all the companies offering all-electric vehicles… That was unheard of, only a few years ago…

31 - Insurance companies will have massive trouble too … because, without accidents, the costs of insurance will become cheaper… Their car insurance business model will disappear…

32 - Real estate will change… Because if you can work while you commute, or you can work from your home … people will abandon their towers to move far away to more beautiful and affordable properties.

33 - Electric cars will become mainstream by about 2030… Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run ONLY on electricity…

34 - Cities will have much cleaner air…

35 - Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean, eventually free…

36 - Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years … but you can now see the burgeoning impact … and it’s just starting to get ramped up…

37 - Fossil energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid … to prevent competition from home solar installations … but that simply cannot continue… Technology will take care of that strategy in the not too distant future…

38 - Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year… There are companies who will build a medical device called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, a sample of your blood, then you breathe into it… It then analyzes 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease… There are dozens of phone apps out there right now for health…

WELCOME TO TOMORROW - To think, I used to complain about my parents and grandparents being "out of it."

Kingdom values

Do you ever feel that your service to God goes without recognition or reward? Some fields lend themselves to recognition of success. Athletes and actors have their special awards. This is less true in the world of commerce, but achievement there is rewarded with wages or profit. In most cases there are none of these things for service in God’s Kingdom. In The Word Yeshua (Jesus) says that those who do their alms to be seen of men already have their reward, so He counsels His followers to do their alms in secret that their heavenly Father may reward them openly. This is a universal spiritual principle that applies to Kingdom activities to this day. Your Father still observes your service to him even if no one else does. Be faithful and patient until he rewards you openly.

Adults put a great deal of study into the thought processes of children that they may understand how their minds work in order to teach them. Yet were they not children themselves only a few years ago? But the understanding of a child's thought process does not remain in adults automatically. In God’s word Yeshua (Jesus) says that unless you be converted and become as little children you shall not enter the Kingdom of God. He spoke this to adults who had already been children, but they could not return to this state by their own efforts. So it is with the new birth into the Kingdom of God, that you must be born again, but cannot accomplish this yourself. Blessed are those who come to Christ to be born of the Spirit, and become childlike in their faith.


The Kingdom is YHVH’s

Earthly Kings

Ps 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed


Ps 110:2 The LORD shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies!

For the Kingdom is YHVH’s

Psalm 22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD's (YHVH’s), And He rules over the nations.

66:7 He rules by His power forever; His eyes observe the nations; Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
