Your Future Now.

A Message from Our President | Rev. J. Nathan Holmes, II

The dichotomy of Scripture is uniquely intriguing, yet it has great purpose. Jesus said, "The kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Mt 4:17); however, Christ also implores us to pray: "Thy kingdom come" (Lk 11:2). It would seem to the casual observer that these two Scriptures are opposing one another –a dichotomy. To a student of the Word, one understands that the "kingdom" is both present and future. Jesus is teaching that the kingdom of heaven is here on earth now, yet it will be a glorious future for those of the kingdom. Simply put: "Your future now."
The advantage of being a kingdom citizen is Christ's heavenly (invisible) kingdom is made manifest in each citizen in the now. For this reason, our template for prayer should be: "Lord, let your invisible kingdom be revealed in me." Unable to understand this lofty concept, the Pharisees questioned Jesus further. He replied, "The kingdom of God cometh not with observation…for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Lk 17:20–21). Through the power of His Spirit, the increase of His government is within the hearts of men and women.
We all have heard the familiar adage: "You can't have your cake and eat it too." The meaning of this proverb is: "You cannot possess your cake and eat it." Once the cake is eaten, it is gone. Scripture turns this figure of speech upside down. In the context of kingdom living, you can have your cake and eat it too! As Kingdom citizens, we are partakers of the kingdom in the now, and we get heaven too!
Truth College at the Rock is all about kingdom living –in the present and the future. For this iteration of TCR, we have chosen the theme: "Your future now." Our faculty is commissioned to facilitate kingdom growth within each student. TCR students have a unique opportunity to learn Biblical concepts that will enrich their lives today and tomorrow. Through intense study of the Scriptures, proper interpretation, and meaningful life application, each student will possess their future now. Thy kingdom come!
