“No one can serve two masters,” Matt.6:24
Divided loyalties; shared affections
Many if not most Church preachers cannot preach the Kingdom of God in Spirit and in Truth. To do so requires one to contrast the Kingdom of God with the kingdoms of this world. Most Church preachers are State registered ministers who have made a legal contract of submission and loyalty and cooperation and unquestioned obedience to the State (the kingdoms of this world), thus they cannot preach exclusive allegiance to the Kingdom of God with true spiritual power and authority.
Preaching the Kingdom of God assumes one is preaching loyalty to it… over loyalty to the kingdoms of the world. Preaching the Kingdom of God assumes and declares a contrast between the two, and a choice that must be made between the two, and an invitation to choose loyalty to the Kingdom of God over all the others.
The Kingdom of God has a Master. The kingdoms of this world have other masters. You cannot serve two masters.
Whoever preaches the Kingdom of God must be separated from any physical and spiritual allegiance and loyalty to any other kingdoms and masters. They must be separated unto Christ alone.
The Kingdom of God cannot be preached in spiritual power and truth by those with divided loyalties and shared affections. The Kingdom of God can only be preached by those who have but one King.
The Roman Empire flag and the pulpit
The Roman imperial military power ensign aquila, the bird of Jupiter (satan),symbolizing the strength and immortality of the Roman Empire, and later the “Holy Roman Empire” sits atop the American flag. It stands ready to fight against all enemies of Rome.
The pulpit (pagan) in Christian Churches and the satanic Roman Empire (and Holy Roman Empire)eagle topped flag share the same space.
If the preacher in such a pulpit says anything about the Kingdom of God, you cannot take him seriously, as he elevates and features a symbol of the satanic Roman Empire which his Church is submitted to and in allegiance with, in a covenant of death, as it were. (Isaiah 28)
Though thou exalt [thyself] as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD. Obadiah1:4
