KINGDOM OF GOD
I am come into the world that they which see not, might see. That I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the kingdom of God. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the Revelation of Jesus the Christ.
The time is now, when the dead shall hear and they that hear shall live. Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead. God is not the god of the dead, but the God of the Living.
Unto you the Word of Salvation is sent. Work out your own salvation: salvation being revealed once again, in the end time. "Study to show yourself approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of God." All scripture is given by revelation from God, for instruction in righteousness.
"The Kingdom of God is not of this world. Narrow is the way that leadeth unto Life, and few there be who find it." (Jn 18:36, Mtt 7:14)
We are the fallen angels. The way back home to eternal Life in the kingdom of God has been given to us through Jesus. Jesus plainly tells us in John 5:24 what we must do:
he that heareth my word,
Hath everlasting Life."
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS."
- Matthew 6:33
"The kingdom of God is within you"
- Luke 17:21
Yes the kingdom of God is already there, within you. It has been there all along; you just don't know it yet.
And what is God's Righteousness? Doing, thinking and speaking the 'right thing', every time. "If you know that God is righteous, you know that everyone that doeth righteousness is born of Him (born again)". (1Jn 2:29)
"The body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is Life because of righteousness: awake to righteousness, and sin not. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled." (Rm 8:10, 1Cor 15:34, Mtt 5:6)
Then Jesus tells us to DO his commandment. And what does Jesus tell us to do? We are to love God with all our mind, and to love our neighbours, and to love our self. However: "let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed (doing) and in truth." (1 John 3:18)
We are to forgive: to forgive those who trespass against us. "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Lk 23:34) Showing the true love of understanding, that They are Lost.
We are to pray to God to keep us from temptation; and remember, "God does not tempt any man," nor will God "suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able." (James 1:13, 1Cor 10:13)
We are to do God's Will on earth, as it is done in heaven. And what is God's Will? "God our Saviour, who will ALL MEN to come unto the knowledge of the truth and be saved. That this gospel of the kingdom of God be preached in ALL the world, for all flesh to see the salvation of God. Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame." (1Tim 2:3-4, MTT 24:14, Lk 3:6, 1Cor 15:34)
We must be converted AND become as "little children': for "whosoever humble himself as a little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of God." (Mtt 18:4)
We must become born again, born a new man, if we seek to enter into the kingdom of God, because such are those in the kingdom of God.
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."
- John 3:3
"WE must put on the new man which is created in Righteousness.
- Ephesians 4:24
"The Spirit of God, that raised up Jesus from the dead, dwells in you: and He shall also quicken you by his Spirit that dwells in you. It is the Spirit that quickeneth." (Rm 8:11, Jn 6:63)
"Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the Will of God. That God may give unto you the Spirit of Revelation in the knowledge of him." (Rm 12:2, Eph 1:17)
"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Jesus. Purge your consciousness (mind) from sin, to serve the Living God." (Phil 12:5, Heb 9:14)
"Being made free from sin, you become the servants of Righteousness; and the Spirit of Truth shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance." (Rm 6:18, Jn 14:26)
"Put on the new man, which is renewed in applying the knowledge of God, given to us through Jesus the Christ." (Col 3:10)
"The time is fulfilled and the knowledge of God is at hand: repent, change your mind,, and believe (DO) the gospel." (Mark 1:15)
"Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God - it is within." (Mark 1:15,4:11) A mystery kept secret since the world began: "Seek, and ye shall find. There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed. How that by Revelation, God makes know the mystery." (Eph 3:3, Rm 16:25, Mtt 10:26)
"Though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. In patience, posses ye your souls. And he that endureth to the end, shall be saved." (Lk 21:19, 2Cor4:16, Mtt 10:22)
The God of Love & Peace Be with you.
