kingdoms

 

 

 

 

Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” John18:36

Many men (and some women) are building their own personal kingdoms. These kingdoms of men want money, numbers and the approval of other men, and the world system. They have goals, they build, they climb. It is flesh. They build via surveys, marketing, banks, politics, governments, corporations, networking, psychology, manipulation, and the strength of man.

Jesus Christ is building His kingdom. His kingdom needs not money, focuses not on numbers, and is disapproved of, despised and hated by men and the world system. He is not using the flesh means of goals, building and climbing. His kingdom is spiritual and His methods are spiritual. He builds via the gospel truth and the Holy Spirit, through His people, by the power of God.

  1. Those in the kingdoms of men proudly fight with carnal means to preserve all that they have achieved for themselves. Those in the kingdom of Jesus Christ do not fight; they entrust themselves to God, lay down their lives and humbly submit to the will of God.
