The upside down kingdom

Published on

In our world today, there is one powerful kingdom. It is the kingdom of the rich, the kingdom of the learned, the kingdom of the leaders, the kingdom of the popular ones and the kingdom of the powerful. This is the kingdom of Satan. It is a kingdom of prosperity, of riches, of power and of fame, legal vs. illegal.

There is another drastic kingdom which is completely the opposite the kingdom of Satan. It is this kingdom found in John 12: 24-26.

  26. 26. CAUTION BY E. G. WHITE<br />“Many who are without spiritual life have their names on the church records, but they are NOT written in the Lamb’s book of life. They may be joined to the church, but they are not united to the Lord. They may be DELIGENT in the performance of a certain set of duties in the church and may be regarded as living men; but are many among of those who have a name that thou livest and art DEAD.” <br />SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, p. 1165-1166. <br />
