WHAT DOES the PHYSICAL WORLD HAVE to DO with the SPIRITUAL SUPERNATURAL KINGDOM of GOD?
But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. (Matthew 6:33) AMP
Jesus states that, “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name?’” (Matthew 7:22) AMP Why in the “WORLD” would He say to them, “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].” [Psalms 6:8.] (Matthew 7:21, 23) AMP
What wicked unrepented sins would cause Him to reject a supposedly Born Again Believer who had done many mighty works in Christ’s Name as an adopted Child of God? Could it be that while this Born Again Believer was doing all of these mighty works in Jesus’ Name, their spiritual faith/heart/mindset was not in compliance with the fulfillment of Biblical teachings, Jesus Christ’s commands, and the leading of God the Holy Spirit as to the spiritual supernatural mindset and heart of God? Could they have been listening to and then preaching, teaching, and practicing an entirely different corrupted gospel message through counterfeit demonic spirits rather than God the Holy Spirit? A gospel message and testimony literally besmirched and corrupted of the awesome spiritual supernatural saving grace found in Jesus Christ for the sinner. A gospel message and testimony seeking to save the world. Or possibly did they have a gospel message and testimony seeking to save BOTH the world and the lost souls/sinners of this world rather than sharing the true Gospel Message for the saving of the lost souls/sinners of this world alone?
This profane secular humanistic worldview is running rampant in The Christian Church today, and the discerning of this spiritually false gospel delivered up by false teachers, pastors, evangelists, prophets, and church laity must be discerned, revealed, and correctly countered by the elect of Christ’s Bride Church during this remaining time before His Second Coming. The world and the things of this world will pass away but the one who does the will of God and carries out His commands will live forever. (1) Why aren’t Christians able to discern and apply this Biblical teaching into their everyday lives?
(1) Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things] — these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever. (1 John 2:15-17)AMP
This will call for the true and the correct spiritual discernment of all the Saints of Jesus Christ’s Bride Church that can only come from the true indwelling and leading of God the Holy Spirit. This will call for us to have complete faith totally trusting in God, His Word, His principles, and His promises to take care of us as we continue to mature in our daily walk of faith with Jesus Christ. For us to achieve the goal of our faith, even eternal life with God (2) will require the full utilization and maturity of our new spiritual supernatural divine nature/spiritual profile, the full realization of the Fruit of the Spirit of our new divine character; the full realization of all the Gifts of the Spirit – our foreknown, foreordained ministries by God, and the sound mind of Christ which enables us to discern and live the thoughts and ways of God as found in His Word and revealed to us by His Spirit.
(2) “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls.” (1 Peter 1:3-9) NKJV
We will require being clothed daily with the full armor of God. We will require the Gifts of the Spirit particularly the gift of discerning spirits and implementing and utilizing the multitude of Godly counsel that He has foreordained and predestined for such a time as this. This multitude of Godly counsel is available to Christians through truly Born Again pastors, teachers, evangelists, prophets, and lay people within The Christian Church. We will require having daily prayer, fellowship, and encouragement with one another in Christ’s Body to achieve the unity and harmony that Christ desires for His Bride Church.
Most of The Christian Church does not realize that Its problems come from within! It consists of two groups who are diametrically opposed in their faith, worship, and service to God. The True Believers in Christ represents His Bride Church with Its spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God Biblical Christian Worldview, and the Make Believers represent the apostate church, the backslidden unrepented members of the false whore church with its different gospel of the profane secular humanistic worldview under the auspices of Satan and his Anti-Christ here on earth. What must be the reaction of True Believers to this revelation? (3)
(3) Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismated alliances with them or come under a different yoke with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership have right living and right standing with God with iniquity and lawlessness? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and Belial [the devil]? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? What agreement [can there be between] a temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in and with and among them and will walk in and with and among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. [Ex 25:8; 29:45; Lev 26:12; Jer 31:1; Ezek 37:27.]
So, come out from among [unbelievers], and separate (sever) yourselves from them, says the Lord, and touch not [any] unclean thing; then I will receive you kindly and treat you with favor, [Isa 52:11.] And I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty. [Isa 43:6; Hos 1:10.]
THEREFORE, SINCE these [great] promises are ours, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates and defiles body and spirit, and bring [our] consecration to completeness in the [reverential] fear of God. (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1) AMP
GOD’S JUDGEMENT starting within the HOUSEHOLD OF GOD
I am seeing God’s Judgment starting within the Household of God!!! A True Believer is one who has accepted the package of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, Lord God, and Master of their life through His Word and His teachings through the leading of God the Holy Spirit. A Make Believer has only accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior but has failed to recognize and accept Him as their Lord God and their Master thus not surrendering to His Spirit and adhering to His Biblical teachings or His Biblical commands for Him to have an all encompassing authority in their life. This profane secular humanistic worldview has so infiltrated, and has become so intertwined within the supposedly renewed and transformed spiritual supernatural mindset of The Christian Church that It has become impotent/powerless/ineffective/weak! This impotency must be overcome before Christ’s Second Coming and will reveal Christ’s Bride Church to the world before His return! Christ’s Bride Church must seek to obtain the complete spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God Biblical Christian Worldview, and we must work together towards this goal as we await Christ’s imminent and glorious return!
This calls for each Saint to totally and completely transform and renew their profane secular humanistic mindset to God’s spiritual supernatural mindset on things above – His Kingdom here on earth as found in Christ’s Bride Church with Its spiritual supernatural Biblical Christian Worldview. The only work of His Bride Church is the winning of souls to Jesus Christ, and the discipling of those new Saints to be of one accord, one focus, and all going in the same direction during this final age before Christ’s return.
Jesus gives us His answer to my initial question of, “Why in the WORLD would He say to them…….?” when He compares the wise True Believer Christian who builds his spiritual house and lives his spiritual life built upon the Rock i.e. worships and serves Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God here on earth as found in The Christian Church with Its spiritual supernatural Biblical Christian Worldview rather than the foolish Make Believer Christian who builds his physical house and lives his physical life built upon the sand i.e. worships and serves Satan the god of this world and his perishing kingdom of the world.
Every person whether saved or unsaved will be judged by Jesus Christ upon their physical death each according to their faith and of their works done through their faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, Lord God, and Master.
