we hear and heed our King

“You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” John 18:37

As we live in the realm of our King Jesus, we hear Him and obey Him.

We do not break civil laws, (unless we must in order to be faithful to Christ) or trust civil documents or civil leaders to be our salvation or means of life. We do not pledge oaths of allegiance to the State or Church, for we have made our covenant of allegiance to Christ.  We do not kill supposed enemies of God (whether evil religious or civic leaders, supposed heathens or Christians who are deemed “heretics” by theologians). We do not kill or destroy to solve political disagreements, we do not riot, protest, march for our so-called rights, seek revenge, rebel against the government, or foment violent revolutions.

We live by the instructions and Spirit of Christ. Our Kingdom is not of this worldly realm. We live by the Way of our Kingdom. We are strangers and pilgrims while here in this world. We offer the peace of God to both the oppressors and the oppressed. We are peacemakers with the peace of God. We hear and heed our King.
