Christian culture is warless, crimeless and viceless. It’s a society that’s a true family recognizing God the Creator for who he is and honoring his son Jesus as King of the earth. Christian culture is the long-awaited Kingdom off God that only believers will share and take part in; full of truth, righteousness, love and peace.
Can you imagine what the world would be like if all the hundreds of trillions of dollars, pounds, yen and other currencies that have been spent on war was spent on helping people instead? All the resources of the world would be going to help people, putting an absolute end to hunger, poverty and homelessness. The difference that would make would be staggering.
The following verse from Isaiah prophesies of this time to come during the Millennial Kingdom of King Jesus.
Isaiah 2:4 And he shall judge between the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
There are hundreds of verses about the coming Millennial Kingdom of Christ and all of them depict a world that God admires, a world that is filled with the knowledge of God.
Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
That is Christian culture my friend, and it is sure to come — as sure as Jesus was crucified and was raised from the dead. Nothing will stop it and nothing can interfere with it; God has spoken. God sees the end from the beginning because he’s not time-locked like we are, and he works all things after the counsel of his own will.
Man will never achieve “war no more” on his own without God. It’s beautiful to “visualize peace” but that’s nothing more than a mental exercise. John Lennon wrote the highly popular and famous song, “Imagine” where he depicted a world-wide “brotherhood of man” without God — that will never happen. The facts are we live in a spiritual world and are in the midst of spiritual warfare. You’ve chosen your side when you confessed Jesus is Lord and believed God raised him from the dead. Now it’s time to do something for God and your Lord Jesus Christ.
You and I have a God-given mission to make known what Jesus did to reconcile man to God. We have been given the ministry of reconciling others to God and God has given us the word of reconciliation to get the job done.
I Corinthians 5:18,19 And all things are of God, who has reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
That is, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
That’s a tall order, but we have the gift of the new birth, holy spirit to empower us and to lead us into all truth. We have the Word of truth by which we know truth from error and what more do we need but the guidance of the Living One, Jesus himself, the head of his body.
If you want to help establish Christian culture in our day and time, just do what God asks you to do. It will be in line with his will stated above. Our purpose on this earth right now is the ministry of reconciliation. We help others that God has called to come to Christ.
The first order on the agenda is to learn God’s Word so you can share it with others. Become so adept with the scriptures that they bleed from your mouth when you speak. Don’t be fumbling around trying to find that perfect verse for the moment; have the body of knowledge in you through diligent study of God’s Word so that you are ready at all times to speak it forth with boldness.
The Christian Culture Center is committed to help increase the impact of Christ in culture. We invite you to become part of our mission to bring the knowledge of God to those who are searching for answers. We want you to sing it, speak it, paint it, act it out — we want you to do whatever it is God has equipped and is equipping you to do to bring glory to his name and make him and his son Jesus known to people.
Consider it a high privilege to speak out and to do things that glorify God on this earth. Not everyone can do that! A relatively small number of people are fully equipped and ready to accomplish wonders for the God of heaven. I strive daily to help equip people for that purpose and I invite you to join me in this God-given sacred and worthy mission.
You are the salt of the earth — act like it!
The day is coming when there shall be war no more. Jesus Christ will return to establish his kingdom. He will drive out all those who oppose it and will warmly welcome all who desire to love God with all their heart soul, mind and strength. But while we patiently wait, let’s patiently serve others the bread of life so that they too can enter God’s kingdom with joy.
God has already moved in Christ Jesus. Now it’s your move! What will you do to glorify God and make Christ known today?
