What is the promised kingdom, the promised people, and the promised pastor? They are the kingdom, people, and pastor who were promised by God in the Bible. They are God’s kingdom, people, and pastor who appeared as the fulfillment of what was promised.
In the beginning, God created man in His image and likeness. God told him to be fruitful and increase in number, fill the earth, subdue and rule over it (Gn 1:26-28). But as the promised generation grew corrupt, God brought it down and created a new kingdom, a new people, and appointed a new pastor.
God appointed Noah when Adam’s world became corrupt and He became the God of Shem when Noah’s world grew corrupt through Noah’s son, Ham (Gn 9:18-29). In Gn 15, God promised future events through Abraham, a descendant of Shem, and fulfilled His promise during the time of Moses. When Israel, the descendants of Abraham, sinned at the time of Solomon by worshipping gentile gods (1 Kgs 11), God destroyed the world of physical Israel and appointed Jesus.
The covenant God established in Gn 17 was regarding Physical Israel. Jesus promised his disciples in Mt 19:27-29, “At the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” As such, Jesus also said in Rv 7 that he will harvest and seal 144,000 for the twelve tribes and create a multitude in white at the time of Revelation. Thus, the creation of the twelve tribes and the multitude in white is the promised kingdom and the promised people that is fulfilled according to a promise. It is written that God, heaven, and Jesus will come to the promised pastor, the one who overcomes, who comes in the name of the Lord (Jn 14:26, Rv 22:16, 3:12). Therefore, the one who overcomes is the promised pastor.
The blood that Jesus shed on Golgotha 2,000 years ago has been remembered through bread and wine in this generation (Lk 22:17-19, 1 Cor 11:23-25), but this blood only takes effect at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment, which is the end of the world. This blood is used to free the kingdom and priests (created at the time of Revelation) of their sins. As written in Rv 1:5-6 and Rv 5:9-10, they are freed from their sins through Jesus’ blood and purchased with that very blood to be made God’s kingdom and priests. God’s kingdom and priests are the sealed 12 tribes in Rv 7, and the great multitude in white in Rv 7:14 are the people who washed their robes white with Jesus’ blood (received forgiveness of sins). It also says in Rv 12 that they fought and overcame the dragon through Jesus’ blood and the word of testimony. Thus, the blood that Jesus shed 2,000 years ago was for the new kingdom and people at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment.
Then what happens to the traditional denominations at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment? As written in Rv 6, Rv 13, Rv 17 and 18, and Rv 21, the traditional denominations come an end, destroyed by drinking the wine of adulteries at the time of Revelation. Thus, the era of the traditional denominations, the prophecies of the New Testament, and the general pastors lasts only until the time of the seven stars (angels) of the tabernacle of the seven golden lampstands in Rv 1, 2, and 3. After the end of this era, those from the north, south, east, and west, gathered like gleanings at the time of harvest (Is 17:5, Jer 3:14), become the people of heaven and God’s eternal kingdom and priests. They will live with God for eternity.
The traditional denominations became wicked because they grew far from God. At the time of Revelation, there are betrayers who fall from heaven, and the group of the dragon, which is composed of false pastors with seven heads and ten horns who end up destroying the betrayers. The work of salvation appears only after the events of betrayal and destruction — it comes through those who have been gathered from the north, south, east, and west. This is why we must understand and perceive who we are in the Book of Revelation, the events of the end times.
Am I born with God’s seed and have I been harvested? Have I been sealed as promised? Am I part of the multitude in white and a priest of the 12 tribes (promised kingdom) who have been forgiven through Jesus’ blood? You must reflect upon yourself through the Bible and check if you belong to the betrayers described in Revelation or the group of the dragon. You must check if you have been born by the seed of the devil, the dragon, and is one who fails to be harvested and sealed. You must also know whether you are persecuting others or are being persecuted.
If one is neither harvested nor sealed, thus not belonging to the twelve tribes, it is because he has not been born with God’s seed. Such a person cannot be a part of the twelve tribes because he does not know or believe God’s words of promise.
God promised what He will fulfill ahead of time (the events of Revelation), and made known the promised pastor and the things He will create in advance. He made known the promised kingdom, the promised people, and the promised pastor, as well as what He will fulfill. At the time of judgment, all are judged according to what they have done as recorded in the Bible (Jn 12:48, Rv 20:12). Those who are not harvested and insist on following tradition cannot be saved. One must know whether the pastor he follows is the promised pastor (Rv 3:12) or a general pastor, and to which side he belongs to among the betrayers, destroyers, and the savior. One must also know which side he belongs to among the three. He must reflect upon whether he has ever persecuted the promised kingdom, the promised people, or the promised pastor. All those who have not been harvested and sealed are those who persecute.
Those who have been born with God’s seed, those who are sealed and belong to the twelve tribes are God’s eternal family and the people of heaven. They are the ones who have been born again and receive salvation.
