The Glory Of The Nations' Kingdoms
NOTE: The scriptural quotes are from the King James version of the Bible.
Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, Shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
Luke 4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and To whomsoever I will I give it.
Here Yeshua never rebuked the devil telling him he did not have the right to the Kingdoms. Or their power or their glory. He merely said that He would not worship him.
Nor did he say He come only for the souls. Yeshua did come to redeem the kingdoms and the nations.
Revelations 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and forever.
In Luke 4:5 The glory that the devil is speaking of here is what is superimposed over the nations. In other words it is the authoritative positions in the realms at the tops of the mountains in each category of influence within culture: religion, family, art / entertainment and sport, the sciences, government and politics, the media, business, finance and technology. Each one of these have their own glory within the nations. These are the high places that the devil is controlling.
But we need to take control of these high places in order to control the nations and their cultures. If we do not take control of them the devil will put his people in these positions of influence. Then he will hold the glory of the kingdoms of the nations. This is what the devil is saying that is his,” to give it to whom ever he desires.” But we the sheep of God are to,” be as wise as a serpent and as innocent as a dove.”
Mat. 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven sufferth violence, and the violent take it by force.
It is now our time and the devil is not going to just hand it over to us. We must be as wise as a serpent and as innocent as a dove. For it is not by power or by might. Keep in mind that all that I am writing about here is a progressive revelation. We are to be watchful for the time that we can move into the positions of our anointing. These are the tipping points in culture. In a moment Joseph was second in the world of power. And Daniel also moved from the lowest place to the highest place of influence.
Blow the shofar and proclaim your victory you who fear the Lord, YHWH.
Proverbs 8:12-16 The fear of YHWH is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.
Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I understanding, I have strength. By me kings reign, And rulers decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, All the judges of the earth.
Yah says He will separate the sheep from the goats. Goats like high places. They like to have the best spots so they can see and be seen. And they will run the sheep off and take control of those high positions.
But we must be as our Lord, He is the ram sheep that got caught in the thicket as in Abraham's sacrifice. Rams are not so easily pushed around. As He told satin, “get behind Me.” We often see lambs depicted in the story of our Lord, but these types of sheep are very timid animals and if they do not dye from predatory attacks they dye of panic. It is not so with the big horned sheep rams. They have no problems butting heads with any challenger. Just as Yeshua did in the temple and at various times with the temple priests.
Genesis 22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
Each nation has a kingly position now and there will continue to be a chain of command within every governmental function in each of these kingdoms.
Who is commanded to come to the feast of tabernacles?
Zec. 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that everyone that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of host, and keep the feast of tabernacles.
Zec. 14:18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
The king/first family of each nation needs to be present at the feast of tabernacles. This is in the reign of Messiah. Israel will be the model nation for the rest of the nations to follow. In short it is the law of love that will be manifested. And there is no law against the law of love. For the Israelite are the ones that came out of Egypt with no culture, no government, no kingdom functioning till YHWH set up His rule of governmental function for them to abide by. After 400 year of slavery they forgotten their culture and was living according to the dictates of Egypt.
Heb. 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their minds, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to Me a people.
Who will be the king in Israel?
Jer. 30:9 But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
Ps. 89:19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.
Ps. 89:20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:
See who anointed David, YHWH, Himself anointed him. David is the king of Israel only. Yeshua is the King over all the earth. He is the King of the universe. The King of kings. And the Lord our God.
John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said to Him,”My Lord and my God!”
And when will this happen?
Hos. 3:5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their king, and shall fear the Lord and His goodness in the latter days.
Eze 34:23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
Eze. 34:24 And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them, I the Lord have spoken.
Eze. 37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people and I will be their God.
Eze. 37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: They shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statues, and do them.
Eze. 37:25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, Wherein your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
Hag. 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of host: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of host.
Mark 11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
Who is speaking here, but the one that is called Yeshua. He is the word of God. He will be their Lord God. And His servant David will be their king.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.
John1:2 the same was in the beginning with God.
Back to the nations. Will the nations still be separate in the reign of Messiah?
Rev. 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? For thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
Mat. 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations and shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.
Mat. 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Mat.25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
Mat. 25:41 then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.
And will there be nations in the end?
Rev. 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
Rev. 22:2 In the midst of the street of it and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits. And yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
Remember that Yeshua is the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is not the King of a bunch of dead kings and a bunch of dead lords. But He is the King and Lord of the living.
