Most Christians do not understand the Kingdom of God, neither do they know WHO Jesus is. Most Christians only believe in Jesus for salvation but they do not know Him nor follow Him. They do not realize that their faith is in vain, because they will not enter heaven.
Jesus Christ IS Lord, the RULER of the Kingdom of God, but most professing Christians do not want to serve Him as Lord and that is why they will perish.
Jesus came and preached His own kingdom, the kingdom of God, but people did not believe Him. John the baptist was the forerunner who came to prepare the way for Jesus. He said: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matt.3:2.
Jesus said:”The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John; since that time the gospel of the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it.”Luke 16:16.
The King came and the world rejected Him, they crucified Him. They did not recognize Him and did not believe in Him. They did not accept Him and were not born again or else they would have served Him.
Jesus said to the Pharisee, Bible believer, Nicodemus:“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3. The pharisees, who had the Bible (Law and Prophets, Torah) and who were expecting the Messiah, did not accept Jesus and the Jews still do not accept Jesus. Most Christian believers do not accept Jesus as Lord. They do not obey His words, do not repent and be baptized in water and therefor they are not born again and do not see the Kingdom of God.
Christians read the Bible and still they do not understand the kingdom of God, the very same as the people did that Jesus spoke to Himself. Even though He spoke to them in parables, they still did not understand.
Understanding of the kingdom of God is given to those who accept and obey Jesus, repent and are baptized in water and who COMMIT to SERVE and FOLLOW Him as DISCIPLES. Jesus is ALIVE and He SPEAKS. He RULES His Kingdom.
You cannot serve Jesus and be pleasing to Him, be part of the kingdom of God through Bible study, going to church and fellowship with other believers. You need to be born again and receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, be led by the Holy Spirit and live in fellowship with Jesus. Other disciples of Jesus will teach you to listen to Him and follow Him, serve Him as Lord, and only then can you be part of His kingdom.
You can study the Bible and even know it by heart but you will not understand the kingdom of God, unless you are given that understanding by Jesus Himself.
Most Christian believers follow a man made concept of salvation, based on Bible verses, interpretations and teachings of men. They are practicing dead religion, they are not following Jesus, and that is why they perish. They are on their way to hell.
The kingdom of God is HERE and NOW. The world cannot see it, neither can most Christian believers, because they do not KNOW and FOLLOW Jesus. They do not know Him because they do not really believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. You will only get to KNOW, HEAR and EXPERIENCE Jesus if you obey His words, as they were also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent, turn from sin, stop sinning, turn to Jesus, be baptized in water for the remission of your sins and pray, speak to Jesus from your heart. Seek Him, obey His commands and He will DISCLOSE Himself to you. You will be born again and you will SEE the Kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is about Jesus, the King. Eternal life is about SERVING and OBEYING Him, living for His Kingdom.
Stop practicing religion. Stop playing church. Stop believing the lies that you have been taught by churches. Obey Jesus, seek Him and He will make you new, born again, a child of God. You will see the kingdom of God, know the Master, hear His voice and be taught by Him. It is all about our relationship with Jesus, serving Him as Lord and Master. Serve Him until the end and you will for eternity be part of His kingdom.
Do you see the Kingdom of God? Do you know Jesus? Do you hear His voice? Do you follow and obey Him? Do you serve the King of kings and Lord of Lords? Are you part of His kingdom?
May Jesus bless you
