Two Kingdoms

We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. 1Jn5:19

For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, Col.1:13

For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power. 1Cor4:20

The kings, rulers and powers of the earth plot and cooperate together with the wolves in sheep’s clothing, following the god of the goats to hell (and bringing many with them). On their way there, they party and “conquer the earth” in prideful worldly victory, with fists raised and swords and high-powered weapons drawn, killing others and saying “We do whatever we want, we run this town, our kingdoms rule, hail to our god.”

But the little sheep follow the Lamb, the Shepherd of the sheep, withersoever He goest. They obey Jesus, doing what He commanded, and follow Him to where He went: to the cross. There they die to self and live in Christ, laying down their flesh on the cross to die, bringing the life of Christ to others and saying “not my will Father but Thy will be done, this world is not our home, Thy kingdom come Thy will be done in us, be Thou glorified in us, Lord Jesus our King.”

  1. What exactly is the problem in American Churchianity?Before we go there, I have a confession to make. I am nobody.
    I am nothing, I do not fool myself into thinking I am something when I am not. I do not attempt to
    build anything for God, nor do I attempt to get anyone to follow me…Rather, I
    point to Christ Jesus as Lord and away from all things that are elevated above
    Him and His pre-emminence in our lives. He is the rose, I am merely the thorn
    you must endure. He is actually the Rose of Sharon, which has no thorns. Yet He
    chooses to work through the weakness of men.
    We, as man are like the stench of a leper and used menstrual rags to a Holy God.
    If you cover the stench with fine purfume, and wrap it in fine silk, you will
    soon see the blood and pus and putrid decaying flesh come through. This is what
    our religious activities attempt to do for our rotting flesh, make it acceptable
    to Him. Yet this can never happen. This is why we need a Savior to make us a new
    creation.
    He chooses us, we do not have the ability to choose Him. We are dead and rotton
    and can be smelled from far off. Can you see this? This is who we really
    are…totally rotten, and above that rebellious too!

    I know who I am, and I know what, why and on Whom I believe. I am the thorny
    bush He chose to place the Rose. In my weakness and sickness and hopelessness He
    chose me and chose to abide in me, and allow me to abide in Him, just as He has
    done for you. Never worthy of anything but the eternal fires of the garbage heap
    of the lake of fire. But in my hopeless weakness and rotting flesh He chose to
    be strong through me.

    Please look past my unclean putrid flesh, and see the Life of my Spirit man made
    alive by the Rose that is Christ through me. His Strength through my weakness.
    Could we not see Paul’s personality and weaknessthrough his writings of
    scripture? Can we not also see the beauty and Strength of Christ through Him?
    Jesus is able to fix us all as we sit at His feet. We are all, afterall that leper!

    The Truth:

    My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray,
    they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to
    hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.(Jeremiah 50:6)

    For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving
    us an example, that ye should follow His steps: Who did no sin, neither was
    guile found in His mouth: Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He
    suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth
    righteously: Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that
    we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye were
    healed. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the
    Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
    (1 Peter 2:21-25. bold added)

    For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth
    himself.(Galatians 6:3)

    Time is short dear friends. Mary chose the more excellent way, that is sitting
    at Jesus’ feet and learning of Him, from Him. Martha on the other hand was
    worried and busyied herself with the many things that she felt needed to be done
    for Jesus that had nothing to do with His Life. This is a picture of the true
    Ekklesia and the religious system of our day.

    The “church” that is the called out saints of our beloved, which He alone builds
    is made up of ALL CLERGY. There is no laity clergy divide as we are, according
    to His Word all kings and What?!?! Priests! We are the ones He chooses to work
    through being the mediator between God and Men, as our High Priest. Hello?!? Any
    system not following His Word is what exactly?

    Following the crowd and deceiving ourselves into thinking we must be right has
    created many movements…all in error. Further, having millions of men appear to
    agree with you and walk your way is no
    guarantee of your walking rightly. I would offer to you as examples the following:
    The Jewish race.
    The Muslim race and religion.
    The entire Democratic party.
    The entire Republican party.
    The entire Nazi party.
    All glbt proponents.
    The Catholic Church of Rome.
    The crowds that cried Hosanna to our King on Monday, but by Friday agreed that
    they had no king/god but caesar and to “crucify Him.”
    6,000 people plus many disciples that were fed on a hill, but in a nearby town
    refused His Truth and left Him because His teaching was to hard to swallow…
    The crowds at Sodom, along with all mankind at the flood, save Noah and his
    family.
    Millions of Hebrews delivered through the Red sea from Egypt, only to die of
    unbelief in the desert never entering the promised land.
    1/3rd of the “angelic beings.”
    All the corpses destined to hell.
    All 50,000+ christian denominations that all think they represent the Bride of
    Christ and One True Ekklesia that Jesus alone builds.

    “Father, that they would be one as We are One,” just doesn’t seem to fit that
    system now does it?
