Look at this passage of scripture in Matthew 4:8-9.
8 Again, the devil took Him(Jesus) up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.
9 And he said to Him, “All these thingsI will give Youif You will fall down and worship me.”
In John 8:23 Jesus said,
23 And He said to them, “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I amnot of this world(he was in it but not of it).
Concerning those that belong to God, but are still in the world he says,
33 These things I have spoken to you, that inMeyou may have peace. In the worldyou will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (There is a big change coming!)
The world's people do not belong to the Lord as we will see at John 17:9,
9 “I pray for them(His disciples). I (Jesus) do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they
We also must understand, the world is different from the earth. The world consists of a society founded on the earth.
Let us read I John 2:15-17.
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of Godabides forever. (No reason to fix things either, it is God's plan to destroy it!)
Now let us read Ecclesiastes 1:4 to
see the difference between the world and the earth.
4 One generation passes away, and another generation comes; but the earth abides forever(unlike the world the above scripture tells us is passing away).
13 He(the Father) has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
14 in whomwe have redemptionthrough His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
Hebrews 10:5shows us this body.
5 Therefore, when He(Jesus)came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have prepared for Me(the Son of Man).
I Peter 1:18-19
18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers(the world's Adamic race of mankind),
19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lambwithoutblemish and without spot(the Son of God).
Romans 5:14, 18-19explains,
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, (if you could keep the Mosaic law you would be in God's grace, no-one could so death reigned)even over those who had not sinnedaccording to the likenessof the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come(As Adam was the father of his race, Christ is the Father of the new species, the new generation).
18 Therefore, as through one man’s offensejudgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even sothrough one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.
19 For as by one man’s disobediencemany were made sinners, so alsoby one Man’s obediencemanywill be made righteous.
I Corinthians 15:51-54
51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep(die), but we shall all be changed—
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet(the blast of the trumpet sounding Jubilee). For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible(our bodies) must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So whenthis corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
To bring about this glorious state to the earth however, we must better understand Jubilee. You see, Jesus as our redeemer not only overcame this world that owns man, and defeated the evil forces that control and own them, but He made a way for man to start over, He Jubilee'd or set free all that belongs to God!
I Corinthians 3:9
9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.
22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit (the new body on earth for God to inhabit).
So God sees us as His land, sold to Satan by Adam, and the house He wishes to dwell in as lost to the enemy as well.
Leviticus 25:10explains the legal requirements of Jubilee.
10 And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land(remember what is God's land)to all its inhabitants(the born again). It shall be a Jubilee for you(personally); and each of you shall return to his possession(those born again who became His family and are therefore restored heirs of God's promises), and each of you shall return to his family(return as the children of God to the Father once again).
16 So He(Jesus) came to Nazareth (after He had been born again), where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.
17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospelto the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives(those bound by this world and its prince) and recovery of sight to the blind(give them knowledge that would open their eyes to the Kingdom), to set at liberty those who are oppressed(by the world's systems and the enemy behind them);
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord(when the harvest of the born again, separated new species is accomplished).”
20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
21 And He began to say to them, “Todaythis Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” (He had withstood the lure of Satan as the born again and was beginning to manifest the victory encased in God's plan of restoration, Jubilee!)
7 In Himwe have redemptionthrough His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
8 which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,
9 having made known to us the mystery of His will(it is the will of God to let us be born over again, start new as His children, set free His land, His tabernacle), according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,
10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ(the final harvest), both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him(who paid the price of the redemption returning us to our former state).
11 In Him alsowe have obtained an inheritance(the promises of total restoration are ours, we are heirs of the Kingdom!), being predestined(it was always God's plan) according to the purpose of Him who works all thingsaccording to the counsel of His will(it is God's will that we are Jubilee'd),
Colossians 2:9-15further explains the depth of what God through Jesus accomplished for us.
9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
11 In Himyou were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands,
by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh(died in His death at baptism), by the circumcision of Christ(as He was cut off, circumcised from life, then resurrected to a new life, He made a way for us to do the same),
12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him(resurrected us as new creatures), having forgiven you all trespasses(mankind was forgiven for selling out to Satan, intermarrying with angels and living lifestyles fashioned after a world owned by His enemy!),
14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements(the Mosaic law) that was against us, which was contrary to us(as fallen man, humanity could not walk in God's laws, all were judged
lawless). And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
15 Having disarmed principalities and powers(He defeated Satan and all that follow him), He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. (The Word, the knowledge of God, defeated the knowledge of good and evil Eve chose!)
II Corinthians 6:17-18
17 Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate(how plain is that?), says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean(those mentored by Satan), and I will receive you.”
18 “I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty(children of God).”
Let us close with a final scripture, Romans 8:21.
21 because the creation itselfalsowill be delivered from the bondage of corruption(from the world, the enemy, death and decay) into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
