Kingdom lifestyle cannot be legislated.

31. July 2013 06:17 by don | 1 Comments

The Church goes out and protests abortion, they demand that the law be changed.  The people of God go out and protest homosexual activities, same sex marriages, and a score of other moral issues, demanding that laws be passed based on the laws of God.  They have the Old Testament mentality that thinks the way to make America a godly nation is to legislate morality.  Let’s force everyone to submit to our standards of right and wrong because we have this authority from God.  That’s what the Pope thinks, too.  And it’s what the Moslem Fundamentalists and the Orthodox Jews think.  It’s what the Serbs think.  That’s what Hitler thought.  They all think they have authority from God to legislate their particular standard of righteousness and enforce it as the law of the land. With every law there is a punishment for breaking that law.  Thus, those who would, in the name of Christ, legislate morality also are responsible for the punishments meted out to those who break the law.  They thus become “bearers of the sword” and it brings Christians right back under the Old Covenant an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth!  And they can no longer say with the merciful Jesus, “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (Jn. 3:17).   

The spiritual dynamic of the Kingdom of God has never been quickened in their consciousness.  They would never be able to say to the woman taken in adultery, “Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more.”  Instead, they would be carrying placards and petitioning the government for stronger laws against adultery.  If they themselves did not hold stones in their hands to stone her, they would at least rejoice in the government’s restrictions and be consenting to the stoning, as Saul of Tarsus consented to the stoning of Stephen.  They would say, “Praise God, justice was done and a strong signal has been sent out to all our young people and would-be law breakers, that adultery is sin and punishable by death!  This will put holy fear in their hearts and preserve the moral values of our nation.”  I do not hesitate to say that such an attitude is diametrically opposed to the spirit of sonship.  It has nothing whatever to do with the Kingdom of God.  It stands, in fact, in opposition to the Kingdom of God.  It is a monstrous heresy and a religious delusion.  It is spiritual treason.   

RIGHTEOUSNESS MUST BE IMPUTED  AND IMPARTED.  If we are a democracy the majority make the laws.  The problem is the heart of man. The majority of our nation want these new amoral laws.   All these things come out of the heart of man.  Change the heart, change the nation.   ANSWER: Evangelism.

PLEASE LET ME NOT GO CHILDLESS

23. July 2013 08:02 by don | 1 Comments

HANNAH cried out to God to not let her go childless.  (1 Samuel 1:5).  Oh that the church would cry out to God to open our spiritual wombs that we be not childless.  God answered her prayer and will answer our when we pray in anguish like Hannah.  Let us cry out to God, that we to may have spiritual children.  Let the lack of evangelism break our hearts.  please post your comments!

Wonders, signs and miracles!

Wonders, Signs and Miracles

 Because of the Kingdom we are in the era of supernatural activity; spoiling the enemy; taking all that belongs to us. Listen. It is time for action. In Matthew 11: 12-13 Jesus said, "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John." 

 In the era of the Prophets and the Law, it was just words and more words (prophesying), but when Jesus Christ came, His first pronouncement was that the Kingdom of God had come and the dramatic show of power and authority that followed was inevitable! Indeed there was literal dislodging of demons, healing of the terminally ill, and raising of the dead. It was war and He devastated and wrecked havoc on the kingdom of darkness. All this supernatural activity depicts the 'violence' in relation to God's kingdom mentioned in the foregoing scripture. What are we saying? Unlike the era of the Law and the Prophets where they spoke more than acted, in Jesus' era it was the demonstration of God's Word against all odds. Indeed in Jesus' era "the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power."(1Cor.4: 20). This era is still on by the way!

The Kingdom of God and Power

18. July 2013 06:06 by don | 1 Comments

The Power Working in Us

The Bible talks about a Power working in us ("…according to his power that is at work within us" - Eph.3:20b). This is actually the Kingdom for it is written: "…the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke. 17:21b). And "the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power."(1Cor.4: 20).

Jesus said, "But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe. But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armour in which the man trusted and divides up the spoils." Luke. 11:20-22. It is not a small feat to cast out demons. It is actually a supernatural feat. It is interesting that Jesus associated the kingdom of God with driving out demons. What is this unless the Kingdom of God is a manifestation of Power itself?

The solution to every need you have is the mentality you possess – is it a beggarly mentality or is it a Kingdom mentality? You inherit nothing without the Kingdom. Every thing we need is already granted. But it was stolen by the so-called 'strong man'. What you need is not those things. What you need is Power to disarm the enemy and re-possess.

Your position is what determines your provision. You carry God's Kingdom (Lk.17:21b). You carry God's Power. What God has put in you and has made you is what really matters – "…Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And has made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen." Rev.1:5b, 6.

The gospel of the KINGDOM

17. July 2013 13:07 by don | 0 Comments

The Good News That the Time Is Fulfilled

First, then, what does Jesus refer to in Matthew 24:14 when he says, "This gospel of the kingdom"? The term "gospel of the kingdom" is used only two other times in the New Testament, namely, in two summary statements of Matthew about the ministry of Jesus, found in Matthew 4:23 and 9:35.

  1. And he went about all Galilee teaching in their synagogues and preaching THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM and healing every disease and every infirmity among the people. (Matthew 4:23)
  2. And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM, and healing every disease and every infirmity. (Matthew 9:35)

So for Matthew the term "gospel of the kingdom" is a summary phrase of what Jesus preached as he did his ministry throughout the towns and villages of Palestine.

Mark gives a summary of Jesus' message in words that are not exactly the same but the same in substance. In Mark 1:14–15 he says, "Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe the gospel.'" This gospel is surely the same as "the gospel of the kingdom" in Matthew's gospel. "The kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe the gospel"—that is, "Repent and believe the good news that the kingdom of God is at hand; believe that the time is fulfilled." Believe "the gospel of the kingdom."

So "the gospel of the kingdom" in Matthew 24:14, the gospel that will be preached to the nations—that we must take to them—is the gospel that Jesus preached. It's the good news that the time is fulfilled, the kingdom of God is at hand.

SAFARI TENTS NEED TO HELP THE BABIN'S REACH MORE OF THE UNREACHED

12. July 2013 04:57 by don | 0 Comments

WE ARE PRAYING, someone who wants to help us go to the extreme bush and share the gospel with those who have never heard, will sacrifice $1,300 USD to help us purchase some safari tents. I know God will bless whoever wants to get in on doing something extreme for the kingdom of God. We will be forcefully advancing HIS kingdom. This is not for Michelle and I's comfort, but for the advancement of the kingdom of God and to reach the unreached Maasai. As soon as the need is met we will post it here. We are headed to the bush and will be back to civilization on tuesday. LORD willing when we come back we will see that someone has met this huge need. THANKS WITH ALL OUR HEARTS. Pray as we travel, pics will come soon.

 

God swallowed up this need so quickly through people who are so dear to us.  Another need met by the people of God.  These tents will be used to take us to a distant land where people have never heard the gospel.  thank you
