There has never been a period of time on earth when humankind hasn’t had a representative from God among them. The foundation of a earthly kingdom of God was laid during the Messiah’s ministry. It has never been overcome to the point of extinction. Join the Preacher as he presents the scriptures while pleading for guidance from the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost will convict a man of the truth per God’s purpose. The Preacher prays that the Holy Ghost will assist you in becoming all that God desires for you.
And saying, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Mark 1:15
Jesus, the Messiah, was preaching that the kingdom of God was near, choose righteousness and believe this good news. When the Kingdom of God manifests, will you be worthy to enter? Please know that the kingdom of God has been among man since the Pentecost shortly after his ascension. The full glory of the kingdom is reserved until Jesus the Christ presents it to our Heavenly Father, who’s tabernacle shall be among us after the final judgement.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Revelation 21:2-4 (in Context) Revelation 21 (Whole Chapter)
But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God. Luke 9:27
This statement must refer to Christ’s second coming because all eleven apostles were together during the Pentecost and the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. If this is correct, then some of the original apostles are still among mankind. The kingdom of God is a people who are disciples of Jesus the Christ. Jesus is the resurrect living head, that has all authority, both on earth and in heaven. Can we believe that Jesus setup a kingdom that would not last because of apostasy. That it became necessary to restore what he was unable to protect.
In the bible the term church, often means a group of individuals that assemble together in an autonomous fashion. This simple means that each group elect their leaders as lead by the Holy Ghost. Which means in effect, by Jesus, the Son of God. When two or more pray in his name, he will be there to authorize the actions of his servants. The Church as a whole is referred to as Christ’s body, he is the head and we are members of that body. All members are precious, necessary, supporting the body with their various gifts from their Heavenly Father. We will discuss at some future date why many are
called but few are chosen for entrance into the kingdom of God.
And he said, so is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; Mark 4:26
Study and contemplate the meaning of chapter 4 of Mark. I believe it is necessary to fully address the reason why parables are used. Why was Christ determined to hide the truth about the kingdom of God from some? Why does the observation of the circumstances of individuals among mankind seem unfair? Can anyone honestly say that all mankind is treated equally? Do you subscribe to the notion that the man should not question his creator? I will not judge myself, nor you, but let us enjoy the adventure of discovery together. I’ll make an effort to restrict my arguments to the support of the bible. However, I accept the truth that God is the same, yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever. What he has done for others, he can do for you. This means that living revelation is an actual fact. An expectation each Christian should, in my opinion, be constantly alert to receiving God’s personal messages. May we all be free from Satan’s deceptions and walk alert in the light of the truth that only God, provides. Please share your comments. Until next time, may God bless and keep you in his grace.
