God’s One Purpose

This morning I brought a message titled “God’s One Purpose” at Church of the Living Word in North Hills, California.

In the beginning God set up His Kingdom in the garden; Adam and Eve walked in a relationship with God as their King. God’s intent and His one purpose is to reestablish His relationship to man and His Kingdom on earth. From Exodus to Revelation, God keeps speaking about a people who are a kingdom and priests to our God (Exodus 19:5-6; Revelation 5:9-10).

Colossians 1:13-14 tell us that God rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son. Jesus forgave our sin, and opened the door for us to relate to Him as Lord. Jesus is ruling, and we should be at His right hand bringing every enemy into subjection to His feet. As the school of prophets, we must weld our hearts together with God’s purpose and take dominion over all authority and power that is not in subjection to His Kingdom.
