Hastening God’s Kingdom

Hastening God’s Kingdom
by Judy Hitson

2 Peter 3:12 NASB looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat!

At this writing, North Korea threatens to attack the United States. Iran continues to head towards having nuclear capabilities. I’ve been wondering about this word in Peter which looks like the end will be nuclear war. We can see God’s timeless word with current threats.

What is going on Lord in the spirit world from Your throne to the second heaven and here on earth?

This verse caught my eye. Ps.103:19 AMPC The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His kingdom rules over all.

What is our part in the body of Christ to hasten the coming of the day of God by Your Spirit?

I look to You Lord, with anticipation that this day is near. 2 Peter 3:12 implies we have a part with You. You reveal a word of exhortation for us to heed, 2 Peter 3:14 Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless,………………….17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

As Christians, is it not our goal to mature in Christ?

Think about 2 Peter 3:10-11 NASB But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. 11 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,

Consider God’s word in Hosea 6:2 NASB “He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, That we may live before Him.

 Lord, Is the third day imminent?

We read in 2 Tim. 3:1 NASB But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.

In Jude 18 NASB…..“In the last time there will be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts.”……. 20 But you, beloved building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.

I sense this is a now word for this season in history. Let us prepare for His coming as a ready bride. And for this I pray Father, in Jesus name by Your Spirit. Amen.
