The Bible is a great and wonderful book, full of God's promises, and what God's people can expect if they follow His Word and walk in His way. Peter, who was given the keys to the Kingdom of God by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, informs us:

"Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust." II Peter 1:4

Peter speaks of those who will be partakers of God's divine nature. Then he lays out a path we must follow to achieve this divine nature. First we must escape the corruption that is in the world through lust. Lust is so prevalent in the world today. Man's lust consumes his time, his money, but most of all lust consumes his relationship with God. Peter continues to lay out the path we must follow to obtain God's promised divine nature:

"And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;" II Peter 1:5

We are to give all diligence, which means to strive after the faith we have in God. And we are to add to our faith, virtue which is moral goodness. As we consider this, we know the morality of this nation and the world is at a minus zero. Yes, and the virtue, or the morality, in the church has become so low, it is hard to tell the difference between those who are called by the name of Christ and the world.

Then Peter informs us we should add knowledge to our morality. The only place we can obtain this knowledge is by reading and studying the Word of God. The prophet Hosea informs us:

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6

Through the pen of Hosea, God informs us that His people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. The Word of God is the largest selling book in this nation. It has been printed in almost every language in the world. God's people are not destroyed because they do not have access to this knowledge. They are destroyed because they have rejected the way God has laid out in His Word to obtain His divine nature. Many are being destroyed because they have forgotten God's law (His Word).

Because of this, God will also forget their children. The children in our day are being robbed of the knowledge of God. Why? It is because God's Word is not being taught in the home and has been outlawed in the schools. Also, if the children do go to church, they are shuttled off to another room and given a color book, and the children are being destroyed, along with the parents, because the knowledge of God is not being taught from the pulpits. Peter continues:

"And to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;" II Peter 1:6

To knowledge, we are to add temperance which is self control. Temperance is a fruit of the Spirit. If the Spirit is not allowed to direct our way, then we will surely lose our way.

To temperance, we are to add patience which is endurance and steadfastness, not vacillating to every wind of doctrine, but steadfast in God's Word.

To patience, we are to add godliness which means reverence and respect toward God, His Word, and His people:

"And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity." II Peter 1:7

To godliness, we are to add brotherly kindness. This is the love we have for our brothers and sisters in Christ. And as Peter reveals, to brotherly kindness we are to add charity. The word charity has nothing to do with our giving. The word charity means "agape love." This is the love God has for His people, and we are to have this kind of love for our brothers and sisters in Christ. Agape love is unconditional. Then Peter gives us a promise:

"For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." II Peter 1:8

These are the things that must be in us and abound, if we are to be fruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Then Peter gives us the negative side when he relates:

"But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins." II Peter 1:9

Those who lack faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, and agape love are blind and cannot see afar off. Or to put it another way, they have no vision.

Most in the church today cannot see afar off. What a travesty! Where is God's people's vision for the end of this age, and the coming Kingdom of God? The all-wise Solomon knew what Peter was trying to get us to understand:

"Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he." Proverbs 29:18

God's people are perishing because they have no vision of the days ahead. Those who know God's Word are happy to see the coming days, because they are desiring to enter into His Kingdom.

Many say the Bible was written thousands of years ago. Many ask, "How do I know it is for our day, and how will I know what to look for?" The answer is simple. We are given signs in God's Word, so we can know when the day spoken of by God is near.

We know by God's Word there is a special generation who are going to see the coming of His Kingdom on the earth and in the earth.

"A seed shall serve Him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation." Psalm 22:30

David informs us of a seed that will serve God. We must identify this seed and reveal its importance.

"And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so." Genesis 1:11

The seed is pure because its life is within itself. Many men have mutated plants through grafting and hybridization, but when man attempts to reproduce this mutated seed, it always goes back to the seed it was in the beginning. Man cannot alter the seed. This is why we have different trees, and each tree does not mix with another, even of the same species. This is why we have different plants of all kinds, because the seed is unique within itself.

When our father, Abraham, was promised by God that he would have a seed, Abraham, being old, did not think he could wait upon God to fulfill His promise. So he took Hagar, the Egyptian, (Sarah's maid) and she conceived Abraham's firstborn son, Ishmael. When Hagar mocked Sarah, she was sent away with her son, and God spoke to Abraham:

". . . Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called." Genesis 21:12

God shows us many things through types and shadows in His Word. God spoke to Abraham that his seed would be called through Isaac. Isaac, Abraham's second son, was to be the promised son.

As we study God's Word, we realize Abraham was a type of God the Father. He is called the Father of our Faith.

Isaac was the promised son. Isaac is a type of Jesus, the only begotten Son of the Father. Paul gives us a biblical principle:

"Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual." I Corinthians 15:46

Abraham's first born son Ishmael, was his natural son, the son of the flesh. Abraham's son, Isaac, was his Spiritual son, the son of promise. We witness this same example with Isaac. Isaac had two sons, Esau his firstborn, and Jacob his second son. Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of lentil soup. Many in the church today, like Esau, have sold their birthright in God for the things of this life that satisfy the flesh. Esau became the fleshly son of Isaac. And Jacob was the Spiritual son, the son of promise.

Jacob's name was changed to Israel, and he became the father of the twelve tribes. Twelve is the number of God's perfect government. This, then shows us Abraham as a type of God the Father, Isaac as a type of Jesus Christ, and Jacob (Israel) as a type of the Holy Spirit. As God's Word proclaims, the promised seed would be called in Isaac:

"Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ." Galatians 3:16

All the promises made to Abraham were made to his seed also, or his seed can claim all the promises made to Abraham. As Paul proclaimed, this promise was not to the seeds of Abraham, because Abraham was the father of many nations. Instead, the promises made to Abraham were for one seed, and Abraham only had one seed of promise, and that seed was Christ.

Christ is the anointing. This seed would come through Isaac who was a type of Jesus Christ. This promised seed would come through the anointing that came on the Day of Pentecost.

The lineage from Abraham to the promised seed Christ, is laid out in Matthew, chapter one:

"The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham." Matthew 1:1

When Jesus came in the flesh, He came through natural lineage as the son of Abraham and as the son of David. Then Matthew records:

"So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations." Matthew 1:17

If you count the generations listed in Matthew chapter one, you will discover there are only forty-one (41) generations listed. This leaves one generation, and that generation is the generation of Christ, thus we discover with the Christ seed, it makes forty-two (42) generations.

Israel had forty-two camps in the wilderness before coming to their promised land. The number forty-two is a combination of the numbers six and seven. The number six represents man, and the number seven represents God. So the forty-second generation of Christ will be when man comes into a perfect relationship with God, his creator. The forty-second generation, therefore, is the promised seed Christ, who will enter into their promised land, the Kingdom of God.

This is the seed David proclaimed will serve the Lord. A generation is forty years. So this generation will be those who have allowed the Kingdom of God to come within them, without observation. Paul wrote of this generation in his letter to the Galatians:

"My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you." Galatians 4:19

Christ being formed in us is the Kingdom of God. When the seed Christ is planted in us, and if not hindered by our flesh, then it will grow until it consumes our whole being. Paul had come to the place in his life when he could proclaim:

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me." Galatians 2:20

Paul had crucified the flesh man, and had allowed the Spirit to have free access in his life. And Christ lived in him because of his willingness to be used of God. This enabled God to impart great revelation to Paul. Paul's Holy Spirit inspired revelations are still the guideline to all those who walk in Christ. Paul made this revelation to the church at Colossi:

"To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:" Colossians 1:27

It is the promised seed, Christ in us, that is our only hope of obtaining the glory that is promised to His saints. Paul revealed this glory to the church at Rome:

"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." Romans 8:18

All the sufferings we must go through at this present time are nothing when we consider the glory of God that will be revealed in all who allow the Spirit to consume their fleshly life and their fleshly nature, and allow the Christ seed to be formed in them.

All God's people are waiting for the return of Jesus Christ to set up His Kingdom. They expect Him to return in the flesh to make everything right. But Paul proclaimed how Jesus would return:

"When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe . . . in that day." II Thessalonians 1:10

Jesus' return to earth is when He comes to be glorified in His saints.

Now, let's look at the principle of the statement, "First the natural, then the Spiritual." Jesus came into His earthly existence like every other human being on earth (born of woman). This was His natural appearance. But when Jesus comes again, it will be in His Spiritual revelation in His saints. In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul disclosed:

". . . yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more." II Corinthians 5:16b

We will know Christ no more after the flesh. As He proclaimed, "He finished the work the Father had given Him to accomplish in His flesh." Now, we are to know Him after the Spirit, and in His Spiritual existence as Christ Jesus, the risen, glorified Christ, the Almighty God, the Father of Lights.

As we gain understanding that God has a generation of Christ, the promised seed - - - then we can understand the revelation given to Peter:

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people: that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light:" I Peter 2:9

God has a generation He chose before the foundation of the world, to live in this last hour of time. He has called this generation out of the darkness of religious confusion, to walk in His marvelous light. These are those He has chosen to be His royal priesthood, who will make up His holy nation. God called this generation a peculiar people, which means His purchased possession.

This generation is going to shew forth His praise. The phrase shew forth means "to declare abroad, to publish, and to proclaim." This generation will be a praising people. An unknown Psalmist declared this praising generation:

"This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord." Psalm 102:18

This generation is a special creation God created to declare abroad, to publish, and to proclaim His praise in the earth. Another Psalmist declared this promised seed generation:

"His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed." Psalm 112:2

God is raising up a mighty people. Jesus proclaimed, these will do the greater works:

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall He do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father." John 14:12

This generation, as the early church, will be endued with power from on high. When we read in the book of Acts, we discover what these men who received the first fruit anointing accomplished. But what they accomplished will be minuscule compared to what the promised Christ seed generation will do when they receive the double portion anointing in the last day. [see "Power From On High" by George Kirkpatrick]

This generation of the upright will be blessed abundantly because Christ will have been formed in them to do the greater works. The prophet Isaiah prophesied how our Saviour, Jesus would die, but He put forth a question we should all attempt to answer:

"He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare this generation? For He was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of My people was He stricken." Isaiah 53:8

Who will declare His promised generation? The answer is very simple. It will be those who have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church. The Spirit is speaking to the church, but is the church listening?

As we witness the world, it becomes clear as to the day we are living in. The prophet Isaiah truly spoke of our day:

"For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee." Isaiah 60:2

Darkness is simply the absence of light, and as Jesus declared:

" . . . I am the light of the world: He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." John 8:12

Jesus declared Himself to be the light of the world. But today, even the mention of Jesus' name has been outlawed. Children cannot pray in schools. Nativity scenes have been outlawed, even though the world celebrates Christmas which is supposed to be Christ's birthday. People who try to preach on the streets are jailed. Truly the light that came into the world has all but been extinguished. This is what Isaiah declared, "The absence of light covers the earth," and so the people are walking in gross darkness. The all-wise Solomon declared this generation who walk in darkness:

"There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother." Proverbs 30:11

Today's generation of children have been raised without the benefit of the gospel. In the early part of this nation's history, the Bible was the main textbook in the schools. Today the Bible cannot be found in many libraries because it contains stories of violence. But has violence gotten any less since the light of the world has been diminished? That same book tells the children to honor their father and mother. When the Bible is not taught the children curse their father and do not bless their mother who gave them life. Solomon continues:

"There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness." Proverbs 30:12

Today we see those who are vile in their way of life, yet are pure in their own eyes. Their conscience has been seared to where God can no longer convict them of their sinful ways. They remain filthy in their thoughts and their way of life, but are lifted up in self. This is the generation Solomon declared.

"There is a generation whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men." Proverbs 30:14

This is a generation of degenerates who prey on the poor and needy. Youth gangs roam the streets. It has gotten so bad there are areas in some big cities where the police will not go. These gangs not only kill each other, but all those who live in these areas fear daily for their lives.

Then there are the sexual predators who kidnap, rape, and kill children to satisfy their own perverted lust. We truly witness this in our generation. In his second letter to Timothy, Paul warned of these times:

"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." II Timothy 3:13

We wonder how much worse degenerate man can become. They truly have gotten worse and worse, until we are no longer shocked when we hear of mass murders and man's inhumanity to man. Stealing, robbing, raping, and other crimes we cannot even imagine have become common place. Jesus warned of this degenerate society:

"The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here." Matthew 12:41

The promised seed generation will be greater than Jonah:

"The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here." Matthew 12:42

People may ask, "Why does the Lord love judgment?" We can understand this when we read Isaiah's earlier writings:

"With my soul have I desired Thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek Thee early: for when Thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness." Isaiah 26:9

When God's judgments are poured out, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. When a local or national tragedy hits, the churches are filled with repentant hearts. Before long things get back to normal, and God and His ways are forgotten. But when God's judgment is poured out in its fulness, man will learn the true meaning of a righteous life because they will see it in His elect people. Isaiah declares this:

"And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed." Isaiah 61:9

God is going to raise up His blessed seed. These will be known as the manifested sons of God, or as His Christ.

The promised seed generation will be greater than Solomon. When Isaiah warned us of the day of darkness, he also gave us hope:

"For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee." Isaiah 60:2

When darkness covers the earth, and gross darkness the people, God is going to have a people whom He will glorify. Those who have allowed Christ to be formed in them are going to shine forth as the sun (the Son). These are those Jesus spoke of when He declared:

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid." Matthew 5:14

This promised seed generation will become the light of the world. This is the Holy City, New Jerusalem that is going to be set on the hill of Mount Zion for all the world to see. And all the promises God has made to man from the beginning of time will be fulfilled in this generation.

Today every religious group claims to be God's promised seed, but Paul explained to the Romans:

"Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, in Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, they which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed." Romans 9:7-8

The Jews erroneously call themselves God's chosen people. But the Jews are not a people, they are a religion, the same as any other religion. Many claim to be the seed of Abraham. These are the seed of the flesh. As Paul proclaimed, these are not the children of God. Only those who are called in Isaac (Jesus) are the children of God, the promised seed. Paul revealed the children of flesh and the promised seed to the church at Rome:

"Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, as it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, before Him who he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." Romans 4:16-17

The promises God made to Abraham were to all his seed - - - those who were his seed under the law - - - and those who are of faith. Abraham was made the father of many nations. God informed him:

"That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;" Genesis 22:17

Abraham had a sandseed or a seed brought forth after the flesh. This seed came through Ishmael, who was the father of the Arab nations, who now are generally Moslem.

But Abraham also has a starseed which are called through Isaac (Jesus). Both these seeds have the same opportunity to serve Christ and become part of the promised seed. But the promised seed are those of faith, and are partakers of God's grace. As long as the sandseed serve the flesh, they are not part of God's promised seed.

As Paul related to the Romans, from the beginning God called those things which BE NOT as though they were. Those who were not a people have become the people of God, His promised seed. Peter spoke of this chosen generation of people who were to be His royal priesthood, His holy nation, I Peter 2:9. Then he continues:

"Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy." I Peter 2:10

Paul explained this change to the Romans:

"Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, they which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed." Romans 9:7-8

The natural sandseed (Ishmael) are not the children of God. But the children of promise are counted as His seed (Christ, the anointed ones). God makes another glorious promise through the pen of Paul:

"Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be." Romans 4:18

God has promised that, just as Abraham was made the father of many nations, so shall thy seed be. This promised seed will become many nations in the New Day after God has cleansed the earth of all unrighteousness.

Philip, who was one of the seven deacons appointed by the apostles to do the work of the ministry met a eunuch, a treasurer of Ethiopia, who had come to Jerusalem to worship. We find the eunuch sitting in his chariot, reading the book of Isaiah. The Spirit spoke to Philip to join the eunuch in his chariot. There Philip asked the eunuch if he understood what he was reading. The eunuch said, "How can I know, except some man should guide me." The eunuch, like many today, did not understand what he read in the Old Testament. Why?

"But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the Old Testament; which veil is done away in Christ." II Corinthians 3:14

The veil on the mind can only be taken away in Christ (the anointing). This is why the church system, who have denied the anointing, cannot understand what they read. Just as the eunuch could not reproduce himself, the church system cannot reproduce Christ in the people they teach. The eunuch was reading Isaiah 53:

"The place of the Scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before His shearer, so opened He not His mouth: In His humiliation His judgment was taken away: and who shall declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth." Acts 8:32-33

Philip explained to the eunuch that Isaiah was speaking about Jesus, but not Jesus only, but those who would declare the revelation of His promised seed. This is the generation who have Christ formed in them. When we arrive at this place in Christ, we can declare as Paul:

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and give Himself for me." Galatians 2:20

If we cannot declare as Paul that we have not crucified the old Adam nature, we will never become His promised seed. This promised seed have the Word of God planted in them, and have allowed the Word of God to have an hundred fold reproduction. When we come to this place in our walk, then we are crucified with Christ. We no longer live our life to please the flesh, but the life we live is by the faith in the Son of God who gave Himself for us. Speaking of Jesus, Paul informed the Hebrews:

"For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham." Hebrews 2:16

Jesus did not take on the nature of angels. But He took on Him the seed of Abraham. As we recall, Abraham had only one seed, and that seed was Christ, Galatians 3:16. Jesus took on the anointing on the banks of the Jordan River. This is when He became Jesus, the Christ - - - or Jesus, the Anointed One. Jesus always gave pre-eminence to the Holy Spirit's direction. This is why He was able to accomplish the works He did to bring glory to the Father.

Jesus was the perfect vessel God could flow through. When we crucify the flesh, we too can become a perfect vessel for God to use to accomplish His will in our lives. The prophet Isaiah gave us insight to those who are God's promised seed:

"And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed." Isaiah 61:9

God is going to raise up a blessed seed. These are His Christ, or the manifested sons of God. Paul explained to the church at Corinth:

"For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at His coming." I Corinthians 15:22-23

Jesus was the firstfruit Christ. He was the wave offering that is waved before the Lord to assure a bountiful harvest. The Word proclaims He was the first born of many brethren, Romans 8:29. He was Christ the firstfruit and His promised seed are the Christs (His anointed) at His coming when He comes to be glorified in His saints. Jesus proclaimed this same time to John on the Isle of Patmos:

"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night." Revelation 12:10

This is when God will set up His Kingdom on earth, and His promised seed will rule and reign with Him for all eternity. This is the completion of God's plan of salvation for His created man. What a glorious day that will be. This is why Paul quoted Isaiah when He declared to the Corinthians:

"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him." I Corinthians 2:9

God's people do not know what they are missing by not striving to be part of God's promised seed. They remain as the Laodician church, lukewarm. Because of this God is going to spue (vomit) them out of His mouth. But those who are prepared because they love His ways, to them God will give His Kingdom.

Eliphaz, one of Job's friends, gives us insight to what God's promised seed can expect in that day:

"If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles. Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.

Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defense, and thou shall have plenty of silver. For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God. Thou shalt make thy prayer unto Him, and He shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows. Thou also shalt decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways." Job 22:23-28

What promises God has made to His people! If they would only return to the Almighty - - - and put away iniquity out of their lives - - - God would truly bless them in their coming in and their going out forever more.

Those who are God's promised seed will lay up gold as stones in the brook. They will have plenty of silver. And God will be their defense if they will pay the vows they made to God.

Many have a way of promising God many things if He only gets them out of their present trouble. But they seem to forget God when things are going well.

But God has a people whom He has created for this day. And He has promised this generation that if they decree a thing, it will be established. God will give them a creative tongue. God will also give those who have walked the way He has laid out before them blessings upon blessings.

"Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, what God has prepared for them that love Him. . ." I Corinthians 2:9

Then all the promises God has made His creation will be theirs to claim as His inheritors, and truly His light will shine upon all their ways. Praise the Lord!

We are given the way to accomplish all God has set before us:

"Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105

If we walk God's way, His Word will lighten all our paths. We have Peter's assurance:

"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness: but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." II Peter 3:9

God is not slack concerning His promises. He has been longsuffering with His creation. It is not God's will that any should perish, but that all men should come to repentance. But those who will not repent will suffer His judgment.

But God has made a beautiful promise to His overcomers:

"He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be His God, and He shall be My son." Revelation 21:7

The promised seed, the overcoming, manifested sons of God will inherit all things, and rule and reign with Him for all eternity. We need to rejoice and praise the Lord!
