THE KINGDOM OF LIGHT & THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The Rulers of the Two Kingdoms
This Series will demonstrate that the Rulers of the respective Kingdoms are Biblically asserted as the following: the Seed of the serpent is Satan/the devil (the Kingdom of Darkness – the Carnal World) and the Seed of the Woman is CHRIST JESUS (Kingdom of Light – The Spiritual Kingdom of GOD/Heaven). There is Enmity and Animosity between the two Kingdoms, Rulers and their Citizens. Those individuals who Love the things of the World and are counted as a Friend of the World is the Enemy of GOD, those who are Unfaithful to HIM.
Jas 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
Jas 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
The Enmity Between the Two Kingdoms
In addition, to Genesis 3:15, there are other Emblematic Scriptures throughout the Bible’s >> New Testament << and the >> Old Testament << which will be used in segments of this Series such as the Article titled; >> “Cain and Abel” <<, see the link) the first brothers recorded in the Bible and “Jacob and Esau”, who were twins. Their situations Represent, Demonstrate and Depict the Enmity between the Two Kingdoms. The circumstances connected with their Birth and Life Foreshadowed the Enmity which afterwards subsisted between them and the nations they founded throughout Biblical History.
Gen 25:22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD.
Gen 25:23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
This will be explained in further detail in the study by their name found in this Blog under the Series – >> Case Studies << and in the Blog >> Thinking Out Loud With My Fingers << | >> Man’s Natural Aversion to Holiness <<
Citizens of the Kingdoms
Each Kingdom has citizens that at first glance may appear to be similar to each other. In most cases the inhabitants of the planet Earth are born, live a particular Lifestyle and Lifetime unique to each individual and eventually they each succumb to death.
However, with a little scrutiny and a bit of study of individuals, nations, and Kingdoms, in juxtaposition, the differences between the subjects of our studies may be observed and once known may be perceived to be truly as different (not only in appearances) as night and day. The discussions are not meant to be a source of judgment against the subjects that we survey.
1Co 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
In scrutinizing the subjects of our study we must be careful not to make judgments since we can not truly know the heart of another. In Charity, we must remember, “…but by the Grace of GOD, go I”. In other words, “if it were not for the Grace of THE LORD GOD given to me, that person I may be tempted to judge would be me”. These studies will open our eyes and our hearts to Reveal the Love, Forgiveness and Grace of GOD, the FATHER and through the Ordained Works of Sacrifice, Sanctification and Reconcilement through CHRIST JESUS, the Son and the Author and Finisher of our Faith, and the Indwelling, Seal and Light of the >> HOLY GHOST, the HOLY SPIRIT. <<
Act 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
If the studies are used correctly we can benefit greatly from the subjects of our study and use their experiences for the Spiritual Edification of our Souls and for the Spiritual Enlightenment of our minds that will serve to Spiritually empower us as we walk in the Light as the Children of Light.
Joh 12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
