NUGGETS: The Kingdom

When we are “Born Again”, we enter the Kingdom of God, we just don’t know what to do with it. As we study, not just read {reading is good}, but I’m talking study, meditate the word, we see in one place it will say, the kingdom of God —-and in another it says the kingdom of heaven. Many scholars say; “The Kingdom of Heaven is a Place”. “The Kingdom of God is a method.”
This is the reason I stick close to the KJV or New KJV. They translated the Bible as close as they could. Because of that, over the years we see some of these hidden truths. Another example is Jesus Christ, Christ Jesus. As a general rule many of these new translations don’t get this, they think they are interchangeable; also some of the new translations program minds. The are reconstructed as propaganda encouraging people in the direction of socialism. Remember how tricky satan was in the garden with Eden, just enough truth to deceive Eve.
The Kingdom of God is a Place; A.-It is a physical environment,- an indefinite region, all over the place. Wherever we go, we take that presence, because Christ lives in us. It is written for us to pray, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. That is the will of God. That is why God set Adam in a Garden supplied with everything mankind would ever need. B. There is a way for admission or transit. Jesus said I am the Way, The Truth and the Life none comes to the Father but by Me.” Regardless of what some believe, that is the only way to get saved. Jesus knows what He is talking about, you see, He is “The Word.”Our lifestyle in the kingdom determines our condition and position in that place. C. Physical surrounding, atmosphere; You and I set that atmosphere in “Christ Jesus” We are seated with Him in heavenly places. He said, “You are the Light of the World; We show the way—bring revelation- understanding. You are the salt of the earth; seasoning, preservation, purify, we set that atmosphere, Jesus’ presence in us. We have talked about our Position and condition spiritually in this world—not in works only but as we yield our self. He said “Take up our cross daily” That is a “Type of crucifixion”; Crucifixion is extinguishing self. D. Then there is a place of the throne of God. Much more than we can tell here.
The Kingdom of God is a Method;
You get a job, the first day, they give you a rule book, the boss expects you to read and comply with those rules. In Christianity, you get a rule book. The boss expects you to read it and comply. That is the Method. That is our instructions. That’s why the bible was recorded and kept for all generations. It shows your work area, your calling. The most exciting life we could live. No person will be complete without Him.
“And we do know that we know Him if we keep His commandments. He that sayeth I know Him and kepeth not His commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. He that sayeth he abideth in Him ought himself also to walk , even as He walked”[1 John 2:3-4-6]. To walk in that Place is a method. Jesus said if you do your part, I will do mine. Walking in that position and in that atmosphere causes favor, signs and wonders. Peter didn’t cause his shadow to heal people; he just walked in the method. The disciples didn’t intentionally stir up the demon in the girl that walked with Jesus and the disciples that day in Luke 11:27, they just walked with Jesus. When you walk with Jesus, it just automatically stirs up demons. Demons in turmoil went to the pigs, they hung out in the Tombs. Some of them go to church. That’s why a lot of people just stay home on Sunday and watch “Gun Smoke.” They cannot stand to hear the Word. Jesus said “He that is not with Me is against me; and He that gathereth not with me scattereth”[Matt. 12:30]. Jesus is our safe place, He loves you so much He chose to come and die for you that your sins can be forgiven. If you will come to know Him, you will see that He is easy to Love. You might want to choose Him as your Savior today and enter “His Kingdom.”
