KEY SCRIPTURES: 1 Cor 5:17 17 & Revelations 2:17
1 Cor 5:17 17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
I wrote about this topic recently and wanted to remind you if you're feeling burdened by your thoughts. For many years there has been a threat to humanity called a New World Order. Recently, the word Reset has been used as a substitute term.
What is a New World Order?
It is a world that has been reordered or reorganised by a small group at the top led by Satan, desiring to control others.
Since Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, religious and other organisations have been crafting a New World Order or kingdom to effectively own humanity, and they do their work on behalf of Satan or Lucifer.
Many times since Babel, people thought the New World Order was upon them, but here in 2023, it is still not fully developed.
Born Again believers already have a New World Order. One that is built on two simple principles—to love God with everything in you and love your neighbour as yourself. It promotes beautiful changes such as love, faith, kindness and inner strength, and a desire to help each other.
Upon accepting Jesus as our Saviour, our focus is now on a kingdom outside this earthly realm. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ brought the baptism of the Holy Spirit, gives us the ability to love unconditionally, the power to resist sin, and an innate desire to follow God no matter what.
When we come to Christ, we get a new future name, a new Holy Spirit DNA, and a new spiritually-focussed mind and heart. We are new creatures in Christ. God has converted our thoughts and behaviours because we allow His Holy Spirit to direct our hearts' desires.
By the power and love of that Holy Spirit, we now view the world through the renewed eyes of Jesus Christ. We've been re-educated through that renewal process. God completely transformed us. When we chose to follow Jesus, our names were written in the future Book of Life, and we became the sheep of His pasture—His new world.
These changes happen internally to our soul and spirit; nobody can take them from us. Our New World Order is not of this world. Any other world orders and re-education systems brought by the power of others are foreign to us and have no impact if we remain close to our shepherd.
In John 18:36, Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
World orders always have two aspects—to control humanity's natural and spiritual world. That is, to re-order what people do, think, and worship. This means changing and denying history and the biblically prophesied future. But all these things must come to pass and should not affect a believer's path. Our faith and trust is in God through Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 2 puts it well. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
What a wonderful future lies before us. The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross of Calvary, changed our lot, and sealed us into a relationship of worship and life with the true God. Our spectacular and unconquerable New World Order is to live by grace through faith and never look back.
Dear Lord, thank you for your promises of the future. Although my walk with you may seem foggy at times, your love for me and assurances of my future are incomprehensible.
