The reason for Jesus’ coming was to establish the kingdom of God on the earth.
Jesus brought a revolutionary heart when he said “God is your father.” No one never said such a thing before, that we are children of God, that God is our father.
Jesus was proclaimed the Prince of Peace, Christ, and Messiah. He fought evil all his life and one of his ministries was to liberate people from evil spirits and heal them. He saw that the evil spirits could give people diseases and disfunction. That is why today we feel the power of those evil forces, and there will be wars and rumors of war before Christ comes again.
Another of his great statements was, “Love your enemy.” Those powerful declarations can conquer the world.
He also said that he will come back to fulfill the marriage supper of the lamb. Today we are living in such a time as this. It means that at his return, Jesus will find his bride. And with this event (the marriage supper of the lamb) his kingdom will finally be firmly established on the earth.
He prayed, “May your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.” We will then enter the kingdom as couples. People will have to learn to love with true love. It will take a revolution of heart. It will not be easy. But the Second Coming will show the model. The first coming emphasized individual salvation; the second coming will be to establish family salvation.
We love Jesus even 2000 years after his first coming. And, as my neighbor said, he feels it in his bones that Jesus is coming soon, or already came again.
When my adult children came home for Christmas, one night my son suggested we watch an episode of “Stranger Things.” My daughter added that it is very popular among young people, and has a lot of followers. The title intrigued me, even though I did not like all the darkness and spookiness in the scenes. It dealt with the underworld, and how the gates from hell have been opened and all evil gets loose.
The series is about a town which opens up portals to the “other world” or a shadow to our world (referred to the “upside down world”). The entities from that other world are seen as darker or evil spirits who attempt to take over our world through the opening in the portal. But through the efforts of the main characters (mostly kids, especially the main girl character 11 or “El” who has psychic powers), they are able to close the portal to that world. In the end the darker entities are sent back to their world and have no more power, and cannot take over this world. My children concluded that there was some truth to this TV show.
When the world of peace comes, and the evil prince of this world has been captured, God will send his angels and helpers to work with the returned Christ. First the gates of hell will be opened, as the last frontline or battle with good and evil, which is shown very well in “Stranger Things.”
One of Jesus’ ministries was to liberate people from evil spirits and cast out demons. He himself had an encounter with Satan when he was fasting 40 days in the desert. He said “Away with you, Satan!” and “You shall not tempt the Lord your God.”
At the time of the Second Coming, with the power of Christ, we will be able to remove evil spirits and evil forces, in order for goodness, a new world of reconciliation, peace and love to appear. The new Christ will open gates, remove barriers, and show the way to establish the kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
When Father Moon was in Danbury prison, and Mother Moon in their home in East Garden in Tarrytown, on the first day of February 1985 at 3 o’clock in the morning Father and Mother Moon conducted a ceremony. It was a declaration that the gates of Hell in the spirit world be torn down, and all the barriers blocking the way to earth be removed. Therefore, they opened the way for the stream of heart to flow forth.
Furthermore, we have entered an era where our ancestors, our grandfathers and grandmothers, in the spirit world can come down to us and coach us in everything.
It takes time for proclamations or prayers to be answered. What has been prayed for or proclaimed with a sincere heart will surely come to pass. Strange things really!
