The Kingdom Of God

"I tell you the truth; no one can see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again". John 3:3

Visiting other countries can be exciting. Meeting new people, seeing new sights, experiencing new cultures. These are things that memories are made of.

Upon entering other societies we notice some differences almost immediately. For instance, the people there may speak a different language, drive on the opposite side of the road or, have different currency (money). Some countries are democracies; others may be socialists, while others may have a religious government.

Then there are things that are not noticeable right away, such as their laws, customs and, local norms. But if we plan on living outside of our native country we have to learn the ways, customs, language and, laws of the country we are in.

It's the same way when entering Gods' Kingdom. Some things are easily understood right away, while other things need to be learned and practiced gradually.

The Kingdom of God was the central theme in Jesus preaching as clearly seen in Mark 1:14, 15. The Lord's Prayer contains three (3) requests, as follows: (1) "Hallowed be thy name" (2) "Thy Kingdom come" (3) "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven". Matthew 6:9, 10 these three phrases mean just about the same thing, and they tell us a lot about the Kingdom of God. "Hallowed be thy name" means: Let your name be hallowed, or honored". "Thy Kingdom Come" means: Extend your rule over human lives". Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" means: Extend your rule over human lives here and now so that they will reverence and respect you". In his preaching Jesus regularly invited people to enter the Kingdom of God, that is, to open their lives to the ruling of God. God is very gracious and loving toward all people, and His Kingdom is offered to everyone. To speak of salvation is to speak of the Kingdom of God.

      I can't imagine ruling and reigning with Him but that is what He says I will do. I can't imagine being without this sinning flesh but Jesus says I will be. I am so grateful for Jesus dying for me. May His Kingdom come soon to earth. "Even so come Lord Jesus."

      When one meets and receives Jesus, his eyes are opened to a whole new universe of experience that dwarfs the one that the world operates in that he came from. What stood as stark reality now is a shadow and what was a shadow now is his reality. As Jesus becomes the Lord and Master as well as Savior the world continues to fade and become increasingly unimportant. His friends and accquaintances, connections and events just seem so much fluff as the kingdom of heaven takes on substance and reality in his mind. We realize the world is not our home but we have a home in heaven with our real family and real friends, with a the real Lord and real power and real eternity, not just a fading legacy that means nothing to anyone. Love you brother Nate. Bob.

      You have written this very succinctly! To know God, one has to pray often, ask for God's help whenever we do not understand and rely solely on Him.

      God's name should be respected completely above all things on earth. Amen.
