**Presenting Personal Relationship Christianity**
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put all of you on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. ~ Romans 13:11-14
Finally, brethren, farewell. Be complete, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you. Greet one another with an holy (respect) kiss. All the saints salute you. The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Love of God (Father), and the Communion of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. Amen. ~ 2 Corinthians 13:11-14---- ==== Additional Considerations ==== === The 3 Tenets of the Christian Reformation === 1. Faith Alone (Sola Fide) - Justification by faith alone (Acts 14:27)\\ 2. Scripture Alone (Sola Scriptura) - Sole authority of Scripture (Luke 24:45)\\ 3. Believers' NT individual [Melchizedek] Priesthood (Sola Sacerdos) - The Christian Priesthood (1 Peter 2:9)
Three times in a year shall all [those who desire to] thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which He shall choose [i.e. Temple Mount]; in the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Passover - Holy Week), and in the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost), and in the Feast of Tabernacles (Fall Feasts): and they shall not appear before the LORD empty [without an offering]: ~ Deuteronomy 16:16**Spring Feasts** (Justification/Salvation): Passover - Holy Week\\ **Summer 'Middle' Feast** (Sanctification): Pentecost - Acts 2\\ **Fall Feasts** (Redemption): Day of Atonement - 2nd Coming, Final Restoration
And great fear came upon all the Church [witnessing the signs of the Apostles], and upon as many as heard these things. And by the hands of the Apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; and they [Church - Apostles and common Christians] were all with one accord in Solomon's porch [outside the Temple]. And of the rest [non-apostles the common Christians] durst no man join himself to them [Apostles]: but the people magnified them [the Christians of the Church separated themselves from the Apostles]. ~ Acts 5:11-13**2. The Common Christian Church Age (Acts 27:6-44)** Acts 27:6 And there the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing into Italy; and he put us therein.
Beloved, when I (Jude) gave all diligence to write unto you [common (generic) Christian Church] of the common salvation, it was necessary for me to write unto you, and exhort you that all of you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. ~ Jude 1:3**3. The Martyred Saints of Revelation Tribulation (Acts 28:1-15)** After the Christian Church Age has come to an end the Revelation Tribulation Age begins.
And when He (Jesus) had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: ~ Revelation 5:9**4. The 1,000 year Millennial Kingdom Reign of Jesus Christ on earth (Acts 27:16-31)** Having finally arrived in Rome the Throne of the King the Millennial Rein of Jesus Christ is now being depicted.
And I (Apostle John) saw thrones, and They sat upon them, and judgment was given unto Them: and I saw the souls of them [Martyred Saints of Revelation] that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast [Antichrist], neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they [also] lived and reigned with Christ a Thousand Years [Millennial Reign]. ~ Revelation 20:4**The 5th Dispensation is the Eternal State**
And I saw a new heaven (sky) and a new earth: for the first heaven (sky) and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I [Apostle] John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle [dwelling] of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are True and Faithful. And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. ~ Revelation 21:1-6---- ===The 8 Realms (Dimensions) of all Existence === Encompassing all Physical and Spiritual Life
These are the generations [dimensions] of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens ... ~ Genesis 2:4"1.

Demonic [demons] -- i.e. Nephilm spirits [the realm of Demons]\\ [Day five creation - fish from the waters (realm) below, birds from the waters (realm) above]\\ 6. Angelic Realm - Holy Angels and also Satan exist in this realm with all of his fallen angels\\ [Day six creation - land animals and humans (pre-fall) humans the highest part of creation created separate and above the animals and equal to the angels but with sin mankind fell from the 6th dimension to the 4th dimension, in fact with the sin of mankind all of creation also fell from its original creation status]\\ 7. Human Salvation redeemed by the blood, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ\\ [Day seven creation - Rest] [**future Restored-Salvation human existence**]\\ 8. Unrestricted -- Infinite [outside of creation]\\ The only Unrestricted, Eternal, Wise, -- Infinite -- Almighty God consisting of God the Father, the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.\\
For in six days the LORD made heaven (sky) and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested (Sabbath) the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed [made holy - separated] it. ~ Exodus 20:11**The Second Creation** The second creation of the new heaven (sky) and new earth will probably be accomplished instantaneously as God miraculously brings forth in an extraordinary way His new creation.

Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens (sky) and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness. ~ 2 Peter 3:12-13---- === The 8 Global Kings over the Earth === 7 Gentile Kings - 1 Messiah/Jesus Christ Each of the 8 Kingdoms has a defining King who essentially brought the Kingdom into existence and personified it on earth. **The 8 Conquering Kings** 1. Tower of Babel: Nimrod, conquered the world, gained his Kingdom, probably through the Mystery Arts of physical personality and persuasion (Genesis 10:9).\\ 2. Egypt: Pharaoh Akhenaten, gained his Kingdom, through the means of finances [financial warfare] (Genesis 47:20).\\ 3. Babylon: Nebuchadnezzar, conquered his [known] global Kingdom primarily through military force (Jeremiah 34:1).\\ 4. Persia: Cyrus the Great, conquered his global Kingdom primarily through the use of superior technology (Ezra 1:2).\\ 5. Greece: Alexander the Great, conquered his global Kingdom primarily through the use of philosophy, knowledge, formal education and superior tactics (Daniel 11:2-3, Daniel 10:20, Joel 3:6).\\ 6.

The Revised Roman Empire: Antichrist (Satan), is in the process of conquering his global Kingdom primarily through the use of spiritual personality [witchcraft]; persuasion, conjure, embelish and through a combination of all of the previously used techniques (Daniel 8:23-25).
And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are Seven Mountains [7 Global Gentile Governments], on which the woman [Mystery Babylon - false religion] sits. And there are Seven Kings: five are fallen [Babel, Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Greece], and one [Rome] is, and the other [Revised Rome] is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space. And the beast [AntiChrist] that was, and is not, even he is the eighth [a fake 666 Satanic resurrection - A fake new eternal kingdom], and is [still] of the seven [not a new Kingdom], and goes into perdition [the Lake of Fire]. ~ Revelation 17:9-118. Millennial Reign: The Messiah, Jesus Christ has conquered the enemy (sin) of mankind for mankind. Jesus has personally conquered human sin and human death on the cross and in His Glorious Resurrection victory He is making available His Kingdom of eternal Life to all of mankind (Romans 8:37, 1 Corinthians 15:26, Hebrews 2:9,14, Hebrews 9:28, Revelation 4:11). ---- === The Three Undivided - Israel Kingdom Kings === **King Saul** (Asked For) - eventually becoming a type of Satan\\ King Saul - Worldly Knowledge, Worldly Kingdom - attempted to usurp a Levitical Kingdom **King David** (Beloved) - often a type of the Messiah Jesus Christ\\ King David - Royal Kingdom, Melchizedek Knowledge (Book of Psalms) [Psalm 110:4, Acts 2:25] **King Solomon** (Peaceable) - partially a type of the coming Antichrist\\ King Solomon - Levitical Kingdom, Levitical Knowledge (Book of Proverbs) [1 Kings 3:9] ---- === The 3 Kingdoms and 3 Thrones of Jesus Christ === **The 3 Kingdoms of Jesus Christ** 1.

Who is he that condemneth [not Jesus]? It is [Jesus] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, Who is even at the right hand of God, Who also maketh intercession for us [not condemning Christians]. ~ Romans 8:34**2.

And to this [Millennial Reign] agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this [Church Age] I [Messiah] will return, and will build again the Tabernacle [Throne] of [King] David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the [Christian] Gentiles, upon whom My Name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things. Known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world. ~ Acts 15:15-19**3. Eternal Throne:** the Throne of the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit (Revelation 20:4; Revelation 22:3) the Eternal Throne of the New Heaven (sky) and the New Earth. **Eligibility:** Jesus as [Eternal God] **Conqueror** (John 16:33) Jesus as the conqueror of this earth [realm] will sit eternally [continuing to co-reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit on His own Throne upon the Eternal New Earth (Revelation 21:3).
