Building A Kingdom

Jul
28

Today so many times Pastors can be easily swept up into this idea of building an earthly kingdom. When in reality, we are supposed to be building a heavenly kingdom, for GOD. A spiritual kingdom, where people’s spirits are raised up. Rather then their comfort levels of themselves and the church they are attending, because true peace comes from full truth of the word of God.

Awhile back I did an audio drama story about how important it is that we stop focusing on structural buildings, money and all of these ‘man-made’ doctrines. And just start looking on the truth of his word, start preaching and sharing that truth with others so that they will be saved. Instead of trying to get them to give you their tithes so you can go out and buy a new jet or new building expansions, here’s a crazy idea. How about telling them to get right with God? How about preparing them for what is to come ‘spiritually’? Why not try to help strengthen them for bad times that may come in their walk with Christ? Instead of lying to them and telling them that God won’t allow any pain or harm to come upon them just because they’ve been ‘born again.’

We all know that is a false doctrine. We all know that the very minute we walk into will that God has had planned for us since the start of all time, everything will turn completely chaotic. All hell will break loose. Out of nowhere it will seem as if the sky has came crashing down on top of you, unmercifully. Does this mean that God doesn’t love you? No. It means that he loves you enough to walk along the roadside WITH you as you endure this pain. He LOVES you, and because he loves you. He doesn’t want you to be fooled into feeling or believing as if living for him will be a walk through the roses. As matter of fact. He actually tells you in scripture to count the cost to see if you really want to take the risk of living for him.

It Takes Everything –

I have quoted this line from the Rev. Billy Graham many times. Because it’s true. While salvation most definitely free, we also have to take into consideration. That discipleship will cost us EVERYTHING. How can this be? Look at all the disciples in the bible that walked with Jesus, look at where they all ended up. Dead. In some way shape or form, they were brutally crucified for walking the faith of our Lord and Savior. They were martyred for simply preaching and teaching in ‘The NAME” of Jesus Christ. And we see the same thing in today’s time happening all around us. Everywhere you look, people are losing their lives for claiming to be in Christ, every minute you turn around. People are dying, while building the kingdom of God.

They aren’t living in mansions bigger than a super mall while doing this. They aren’t preaching fluff and puff, they aren’t getting all the riches of the world. They might not even have much money at all. Like you and like me, (the average Christian) they are but travelers through this world of woe. Strangers you could say. Knowing that by grace we are saved and by faith we can endure all things with God whom are all things possible. We know that the road to building a kingdom isn’t as grand as many TV Preachers make it out to be today, but we also know that there is a great reward for us in heaven. Aha! There is is! There must be some kind of prize for having to endure such a hard life on this earth, right?

In Conclusion:

Yes! And what is it? Is it cars? Money? Million dollar mansions? The best paying job that there is? Fame? Popularity? How about a lot of friends? No. So what could it possible be? Oh wait! I KNOW! How about we ask Jesus what our prize is? OK, I’ll ask him.

Scripture Verse:

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
 – Matthew 5:12 KJV

There we are! Greater is our reward where? Did Jesus say, Earth? NO. He said, HEAVEN! So does this mean that we cannot have an ounce of peace on this earth? Absolutely not. What this means is, our main goal in building a kingdom should not be receiving a whole lot of money, or having all the possessions of the world. Fame, popularity, no. Our goal should be to see people saved, to see people come to the alter and become truly reborn. Baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost, bursting with his joy. Exceeding in his holiness.

That, is our goal. For more information about my audio drama, please. CLICK HERE

Today Is The Day!

May
11

G’Day Mate’s, today’s post will be much shorter than usual, people wanna live up life, they don’t want to commit their life to Christ because they don’t want to pay that high cost daily that it’ll be to live and walk and talk for Christ. They don’t want all that suffering, belittling, unpopularity and mockery going on in their life.

maxresdefaultNo they want to live life up to the fullest that they can… So they choose a plan where they pay less now but will pay more in the end as Christians we choose a plan where we pay more now and NOTHING at the end because by paying this price in believing on Jesus Christ that he shed his blood we know that by his blood our end time cost is already paid for and that cost is judgement, death, hell and the grave. Christians don’t have to pay that cost because Christ paid it for them on the cross and they paid a cost to believe that he did it and because they committed their life to him.

But most the world doesn’t want to pay a high cost today and owe nothing at the end of their life. They want to pay as little as possible when in the end they’ll pay an extraordinary price and then their soul would have been sold to satan all that time they kept switching their plan to pay less and less the devil put in the fine print of their contract that he would own their soul. But they didn’t want to believe the Christians, they thought the Christians were idiots for paying so much for hell on earth when they’ve been having to pay nothing for heaven on earth…

But that’s the point, we may have to pay a cost now but the cost at the end is paid for but for the sinner who choose to pay less now, their cost at the end will not be paid for and they will face judgement, death, hell and the grave.. Wishing they would of heeded our words to pay the higher cost today then pay the lesser cost and have to pay the highest cost at the end..

In Conclusion:

Though we as Christians pay a high cost as we pick up our cross and follow him daily that cost will be worth it all when we enter into heaven because at the end of this life we are debt free of judgement, death, hell and the grave. We know that Today is the day of salvation NOW, because you may not have tomorrow so why not pay the cost today instead of paying everything at the end for your death, why not make that surrender to God right now instead of fighting the truth like you have been for so long, you don’t have to fight anymore, you don’t have to worry anymore, you need not wonder anymore how you will get through something.

Because now you know that God loves you, now you know for sure that he has loved you since before you were even born and now you know that from the beginning of time God loved everything about you even the things that you didn’t know about yourself and now you know that with this new found love of Christ, you can make it through the darkest times that you may have ever faced and you know that through this love of Jesus Christ you can do all things which gives you strength, now you know that today is the day of salvation and because of this you have no excuses and I pray that you take heed and hear his voice.

For now you know…

I hope that you enjoyed today’s post and until we blog again, be exceedingly blessed beyond your wildest imaginations and beyond your craziest of dreams for God is with you.
