We live in a world that is more literate than it has ever been in history, more people can read and write than ever. More people have Bibles than ever but very few have any knowledge of God nor understanding of the kingdom of God. The world is full of innovations, 7schemes, procedures, technologies, theories, remedies and explanations for everything under the sun, but it has never been as confused, deceived and hopelessly lost as it is in this age.
Modern day Christianity has many Bible teachers and highly educated preachers with qualifications earned from prestigious universities, but there are few, if any, men and women of God. That is why they are powerless, inconsequential, they have no impact on the world, empty talkers, powerless sinners. They cannot even overcome their own flesh. They do not understand the kingdom of God, because they have not and cannot receive it. They are puffed up, arrogant and proud. Jesus said: “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” Luke 18:17.
25At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. 26“Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. 27“All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.” Matthew 11:25.
The modern day Christianity is Bible based, based on the dead letter, not on revelation of Jesus Christ through faith and childlike acceptance of Jesus and obedience to His words. They are for ever learning, studying and never coming to the knowledge of the truth because they refuse to accept and obey Jesus.
You cannot bypass Jesus Christ. Doctrines, Bible studies and human wisdom will not bring you into the kingdom of God. You have to humble yourself before Jesus, obey Him, His words and commandments as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John; repent and be baptized, stop sinning, be holy, seek Him with all your heart and He will REVEAL Himself to you. You need a revelation of Jesus, not knowledge and endless teachings. You need to be taught by Jesus, through your relationship with Him.
Accept and OBEY Jesus without doubt and reservation. Fully trust Him and He will reveal Himself and the Father to you. Those who are wise in their own estimation will not receive the mysteries of the kingdom of God, because they lack simple childlike faith.
May Jesus bless you.
