The Promised New Kingdom and New People
God created the heavens, the earth, and all creation. However, the serpent and Eve, who are created beings, betrayed God due to their greed to want to become God themselves. Due to this, God left the world filled with peoples’ sins, and the serpent ruled over the world. Because God, who is life, left the people, the life line became disconnected, and people were left to what they had (life), until they would die and go back to being part of the dust- where they originally came from. From this point, people have continually passed down the genes of sinners like Adam and Eve.
God has worked for 6000 years to restore the world and people He lost. God sent Jesus and shed the blood of a righteous person to free the people from their sins. He also prophesied what will be in the future. This is the prophecy of the Old and New Covenant after the time of Moses.
Although God chose Noah and Moses among a world of sinners and made covenants with them, the world of physical Israel betrayed as Adam did (Hos 6:7). After, God promised to do a new work (Jer 31:22-34). About 600 years after, God sent Jesus, the promised pastor, to save His people from their sins (Mt 1:18-25). Jesus carried the cross and shed his blood, making a new covenant (Lk 22:14-20). This blood fulfills its purpose in Revelation 5. The sin of man can only be freed by the blood of a righteous person (refer to Rv 1:5-6).
Jesus carried the cross and shed his blood, he prophesied the work of forgiveness of sins through this blood and declared that the end will come after this gospel of heaven is preached to the whole world as a testimony to all nations (Mt 24:14). At this time, a world comes to its end and the new world, which is the promised new kingdom and new people, is created according to God’s will.
God left this world after the sin of Adam and it has been about 2000 years since Jesus, a righteous man, carried the cross and shed his blood, to free the world of its sins and create the new covenant. Jesus shed his blood to free his people from their sins. Therefore, this blood was shed for his people at the time of the fulfillment of Revelation; the priests and the great multitude in white of the new kingdom.
<Rv 5:9-10> And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.”
<Rv 1:5-6> ... To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.
<Rv 7:14> I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
According to the word as mentioned above, the blood of Jesus at the Passover was the blood shed for the promised new kingdom and new people (Lk 22:14-20). This promised kingdom and people are God’s new kingdom and new people created by harvesting (Rv 14:14-16) and sealing (Rv 7) at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment.
Despite people one-sidedly saying, “This is it” and “That is it” according to their own judgement, God has carried out the work of restoration in many ways. However, because these things were not able to wash away the sin of mankind, the blood of a righteous person, God’s son, was needed to free people of sin. For this reason, Jesus called himself the Passover lamb in John 6 and Luke 22, and said that he had come for his people (Mt chapter 1).
Although Satan had taken what belonged to God and ruled over it, even Satan knows that someday everything will go back to God. That day is the time of Revelation. This is the reason why Jesus shed his blood; it is for God’s kingdom of priests and great multitude in white at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment. The gospel that came before this was the gospel that spread what would be accomplished today, at the time of Revelation.
Jesus sowed the seed of God and shed his blood on the cross for the new kingdom and new people as promised in Revelation. The work of the new thing as prophesied through Jeremiah (Jer 31:22) was also speaking of the new kingdom and new people of Revelation. Even the new covenant made by Jesus on the night of Passover with his blood, was for the new kingdom of 144,000 priests and the new people of the great multitude in white.
The time of this new kingdom and new people, is when the serpent, the devil (Satan, dragon), disappears, and the time when God reigns. Therefore, it is the time of the eternal kingdom, the time of heaven where one lives together with God, Jesus, and the martyrs. There is no greater blessing than this. This is the promised new kingdom and new people. The new kingdom and new people who receive this great blessing must work as Jesus and the martyrs did and give thanks and glory to God. Amen.
