Discussion for Revelation 5:10

  • Cordoza 111 for verse 10
    The annointed King made a sacred agreement covenant , legally binding by the incomparable value of his sacrificial blood. This covenant arranged for men of earth to be "bought " from earth as "firsrfruits "to God, the King 's Father. As "firstfruits " they are resurrected first, to live in Heaven as immortal spirit sons and daughters of God. God there makes them a kingdom of priests including His Son, the King Christ Jesus , as the joint heir and head of this new Messianic Kingdom. They will rule as one Kingdom over mankind who come through the great tribulation and armageddon alive, and all those made alive, with new flesh, in the second resurrection to paradise earth. Thus... "God 's kingdom come, God 's will be done..ON EARTH...as it is in Heaven ". Then will be true Revelation 21 1 4.
