The Kingdom of God

Image result for kingdom of god imagesChrist said that we should pray this way, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Those of us who claim to be Christians must adjust our goals and our thinking to align with the “Kingdom of God”.

Do you expend a reasonable amount of your personal resources to build the Kingdom of God? or are you more intent upon building your own kingdom? Are you building upon the Rock of Ages or are you building on sinking sand? Are you into the latest fad and fashion or are you even more into what brings glory to the Almighty? Are you more democrat or republican, than you are for the Kingdom of God? Are you more American, Filipino, Canadian, Nigerian, British, Norwegian, Australian, South African, Columbian, Egyptian, Russian, Chinese, etc. than you are for the Kingdom of God?

Do you support your favorite college football or soccer team more than the Kingdom of God? Is your favorite singer or actor more important to you than the Kingdom of God? Does your WHOLE heart belong to the Creator or do you share it with another lover?

Is feeding the hungry important to you? Is visiting the sick important to you. Is visiting those imprisoned on your list of do? What about clothing the naked or taking in strangers? Does hurting needy people matter to you? This is of eternal importance.

It is perfectly alright to enjoy many things in life; however, we may not love these things more than YaHVeH our God. He gave His all for us, and we owe Him our all. Are you a Kingdom of God person? or not? Think carefully and long before you give a flippant half-hearted answer.

Christ said that if we do not love Him above all, then we are not worthy of Him. Check your heart. Your soul is at stake. Let us make a habit of checking our heart from time to time, to make sure we have not compromised it unfaithfully against Christ and His kingdom.

The Crooked Way

We will have all manner of pleasure, so come and let’s play. Let’s indulge ourselves. Let’s party all night long and eat forbidden fruit. Let’s find some exciting mischief to get into. Let’s lie in wait for a victim and ambush them for the fun of it. Let us overthrow Godliness. Let’s waste luxuriously.

Let’s break every law as we engage in extreme sensuality. Let’s break all the rules tonight. Let’s see how far we can go before we retreat in the nick-of-time to safety. Let’s run away with all their stuff and destroy to our heart’s content.

Let’s go almost all-the-way. Let’s go all the way without getting caught. Let’s violate the boundaries. Let’s heist the loot and make fun. Let us stubbornly resist unto full rebellion. Let’s toy with danger as we sneak around. Let us cast a spell and return.

These are crooked ways: distorted, enticing, sensual, warped, worldly, lustful, dishonest, sinfully exciting, risky, dangerous, deformed, scary, shocking, forbidden, intriguing. Fallen man revels in the crooked way and if you offer it to him, he will do anything for you, including voting for you. There is great pleasure in sin for a season and sin in the Garden of Eden warped what was natural and normal and lawful from the hand of Almighty God.

Proverbs 2:10-15, “When wisdom enters your heart and knowledge is pleasant to your soul; discretion shall preserve you. Understanding shall keep you: to deliver you from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaks perversity/fraud; who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the perversity of the wicked; whose “WAYS ARE CROOKED”, and perverse in their paths.

The crooked way is alluring. Man travels this path on a whim of his own and by simple enticement from fallen angels. It leads to eternal damnation, because it is the path to hell.

The straight way is very different. The straight paths are established by the Great Creator YaHVeH, who inspired these straight paths to be penned in His Word the Holy Bible. This way leads to eternal life.
