The Essence of JRE
The Big Picture
Jesus Reigns Eternal. God is God. He rules and reigns in the spiritual realm and in the physical realm. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. God gave us delegated authority over all creation (Gen. 1:28, Ps. 8, etc.) but we gave it to the enemy. Jesus died and got back all of our delegated authority, amongst many other things. But, we are still deceived and don’t know that we have our authority back and so we don’t act like it.
But, in the end of days, the Bride of Christ will be ready, pure and holy, without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish (Eph. 5:27, Rev. 19:7-8). The sons of God will be revealed (Rom. 8:19-21) and every part of the Body of Christ will be fully walking in our delegated authority along with love and all the fruits of the Spirit in full maturity. Then the truth of Jesus’ reign will be fully manifest. And, we can finally have the Wedding of the Lamb! As soon as the Bride is ready, Jesus will come for her.
In order to have that happen, we have to be set free from the lies that keep us in bondage. The lies tell us that we are still victims and slaves to sin and the law. But, God says that Jesus died to set us free (John 8:36, Gal. 5:1). As people hear truth spoken in love, the Truth can set them free (John 8:32). Then, they can manifest that truth in their lives, circumstances, and spheres of influence, letting Jesus reign. As more people know the Truth and are set free in every area of their thinking, the kingdoms of this world manifestly become the kingdoms of our God (Rev 11:15). Once that process becomes complete, the world will be completely Heaven on Earth as Jesus prayed for (Matt 6:10). Then the Bride will be ready. And, Jesus can come for her and have the Wedding.
But, before we can help set others free to be sons of God and walk in their delegated authority, we have to hear the truth ourselves and understand what Jesus has done for us so we can be free in every area of our lives, hearts, and thoughts. We have to let Jesus reign in each area of our thoughts, emotions, actions, body, soul, and spirit. In other words, we have to submit ourselves fully to the King of kings. We are a royal priesthood. We are kings and He is the King of kings. But, we won’t get very far as long as we are believing that we are slaves or acting rebelliously and not submitting to Jesus’ lordship. When we give Him permission to be Lord over an area of our lives, then He is free to move and bless us with His wisdom, love, abundance, freedom, help, and every spiritual blessing in the Heavenly realms (Eph. 1). And, we can manifest in our lives what Jesus died to give us. But, when we don’t let Jesus reign, we are stuck with only our own abilities, ideas, and resources to fix our problems. And that never works out well.
We submit to God and let Him reign because we love and trust Him (Eph. 5:22-24). He is so good and brilliant and generous. How could we not want Him to be our King? Especially when letting Him be the King of kings sets us free to be kings ourselves. The greatest commandment is to love God and love others as ourselves. God knows that loving Him and others as ourselves is the only way for us to be truly free and fulfilled. Loving God naturally puts Him in charge and allows all His goodness to flow freely to ourselves and others. Letting Jesus reign brings Heaven to Earth in each area where we let Him reign. The kingdom is wherever the king is reigning. The more areas of our hearts that we make Jesus Lord over, the more areas of our hearts where the Kingdom of God exists.
However, we cannot love God or others as ourselves until we let God first love us (1 John 4:19). God is love (1 John 4:8,16). We can’t generate any love for God or others or ourselves apart from God’s love. He is the only source of true love. So, it all must start with our being loved by God, which He is more than willing to do. God is love. He can’t not love us. But, we can reject it or accept it.
So to summarize:
He first loved us ⇒ We love God, Others, & Ourselves ⇒ We all submit to God ⇒ We make Jesus Lord over everything ⇒ The kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our God ⇒ Jesus Returns ⇒ Wedding of the Lamb ⇒ Eternal Union with God
So, the most important thing in the universe that we need to get to the Wedding is to be loved by God. Everything else logically and naturally follows. Love is all there is. Be the Bride. Let Him reign. 2 Peter 3:9-12 - as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. Rev 22:17 - The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let the one who hears say, "Come!" Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
I have always wanted to use my gifts and knowledge of both physics and the Bible to help both Christians and Scientists come to a deeper, more intimate understanding of the Truth (i.e. Jesus) and also to help remove some of the animosity that exists between the two groups. I have found that most of the animosity comes from misunderstandings and misinterpretations. So I feel that teaching about what the Bible really says and what science really says will help people know the Creator and the creation better and help everyone understand each other better. The Bible and science both talk about the Truth who is Jesus and so, at the core of both, they must say the same thing. The problems come when we misinterpret or misunderstand either the Bible or the scientific data or both. It is my passion to help people know Jesus better by teaching them about what God has revealed about Himself in the Bible and in His creation.
JRE's purpose is to:
- To reveal truth about God and the way He made the universe.
- To show people how to practically apply that truth to their lives.
- To see the spiritual realm/reality as it actually is and help others to see it too.
- To discover how and train people to apply Jesus’ redemption to nature by exercising their godly authority as sons of God through servant leadership and good stewardship.
- To help bring people together in unity and love vertically and horizontally.
- To expand the Kingdom of God by being loved and loving God and others and teaching others to do the same.
We want to see the Bride come together without spot or wrinkle, walking in all her delegated authority, loving her groom, and making herself ready for His return. We want to see the Bride manifesting the redemption of the entire physical universe and all the people in it and bringing Heaven completely to Earth. We want God to look at us and our generation (everyone on earth at the time) and say, “That is what I wanted. That is everything that I intended Humanity to be when I created Humanity.”

John 14:6Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Psalm 8:1-9 NASBO LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth, Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens! From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength Because of Your adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease. When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen, And also the beasts of the field, The birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, Whatever passes through the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth!
Revelation 19:7-8Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God's holy people.)
Romans 8:19-22For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.Galatians 5:1 - It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Colossians 2:20 NASBIf you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees
Colossians 2:6-10 NASBTherefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority
