God’s Eternal Purpose: The Establishment of God’s Kingdom
By Clement C. Butler
Is this life all there is? Or, can we look forward to eternal life?
As human beings, we need to know that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. And we are all always in search of something that is higher and bigger than ourselves so that we could be enlightened.
However, as human beings, many times we misunderstand God’s true purpose for us. We want to be independent beings doing our own things without worrying about anything else. We don’t want others to tell us what to do. This attitude of independence can take us very far from God and his ultimate purpose for us.
God has a cohesive plan for each of us. His purpose has not changed for us. What we have to do is to accept and embrace his purpose in our lives and to live as God wants us to live so that we can get all the gifts that are bestowed to us by God. God is the ultimate orchestrator of our lives.
We must never think that we have no value to God or that we are insignificant. All we have to do is to reflect on the specific details involved in our existence as noted in creation. Man was made to resemble God and was therefore a representative figure to look and function like God on earth.
This book will take the reader on a journey through the Scripture, underscoring the fact that the world of God truly is a marvelous arrangement which carefully outlines and orchestrates His purpose throughout the ages. This book will provide a step-by-step guide of the purpose of God in Scripture for each one of us.
This book will also make the reader ponder about the true meaning of his life in the greater whole and to reflect on how he could really fulfill God’s purpose instead of seeking his own finite purposes—ones that are not pleasing to God.
This is the first volume on God’s Eternal Purpose. This book establishes a foundation regarding the perpetual plan of the Father. I can’t wait to read the second volume in which there will be even more emphasis on the identity of the kingdom, the development of the sons of the kingdom, and the ultimate inheritance of the kingdom.
