The Kingdom of God is within You

Christ Rules Within:

-Luke 17:20-21:And He was demanded of the Pharisees,when the kingdom of God should come,He answered them and said,The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation:Neither shall they say,Lo here!or lo there! for behold the Kingdom of God is within You.

-Col 1:27:To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the gentiles:"which is Christ in You",the hope of glory.

-Heb 13:20-21:Now the God of peace,that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus,the great shepherd of the sheep,through the blood of the everlasting convenant,Make You perfect in every good work to do his will,"working in You"that which is well pleasing in his sight through Jesus Christ;to whom be glory for ever and ever Amen.

-Phil 2:13:"For it is God which "worketh in You" both to will and to do His good pleasure.

-John 14:17:Even the spirit of truth whom the world cannot recieve because it seeth him not neither knoweth Him,but ye know him;for he dwelleth with You and shall be "in You"

-John 14:23:"Jesus answered and said unto him,If any man love me,he will keep my words:and my Father will love him and We will come unto him,"and make our abode with Him"


Many Christians today are diligently awaiting their Masters second coming to the earth. They expect that Jesus is going to come from the sky in a fleshy body and that all they are required to do is to wait for Him to come.

These Christians feel that being nominal Christians is enough to make them justified in Christ's sight when he comes. They feel they can live their lives however they like as long as they go to church on Sundays and are active in their local assemblies.
They do not deem it necessary to give their whole lives to God and allow Him to be enthroned in their hearts. their views are erroneous and would eventually lead to their destruction if they do not repent of them.

Jesus doesnt bear an earthly form anymore:
-Heb 2:14:"Forasmuch as the children are partakers of flesh and blood,He also himself likewise took part of the same that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death that is the devil.

-1 Cor 15:44:"It is sown a natural body,it is raised a spiritual body,There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body.

-2 Cor 5:16:Wherefore henceforth we know no man after the flesh:yea,though we have known Christ after the flesh,yet henceforth know we him no more

Jesus came to the earth the 1st time in an earthly form (in a physical body) .The reason why he came in an earthly body was because He wanted to take on our fallen  image in order to destroy it's power over us (by His death) and pass unto us His new spiritual image.

Jesus is no more earthly neither does he inhabit an earthly body anymore. That is why 1 Cor 15:44 which I quoted above says that there is a natural body and a spiritual body. Jesus is a spirit. He doesnt have a natural body anymore. He has conquered the old body of sin and has become glorified.(He has also opened the door for us to do the same if we repent)
Also, 2 Cor 5:16 which I quoted above states that we do not know Christ after the flesh anymore. What Paul was trying to say was that we do not concern ourselves with Jesus fleshy looks or fleshy body anymore. We now have a spiritual understanding of Him because He lives in our hearts.

-Matt 11:27:"All things are delivered unto me of my father,and no man knoweth the son but the father neither knoweth an man the father save the son and whomsoever the son will reveal him.

That is the reason why Mary Magdalene who knew Jesus very well in his earthly form did not recognize Him in His exalted form till he revealed himself to her (John 20:15) That was also the reason why his disciples failed to recognise him in his exalted form (Luke 24:15-40) until he revealed himself to them and showed them his "marks".


These  marks are symbolic of the fact that we cannot recognize or understand Jesus based on His fleshy form unless he reveals himself and his new nature to us.


The Kingdom of God is within us.
The Jews in Jesus time had an earthly an carnal understanding like many christians have today. They thought that God's kingdom was an earthly kingdom where Jesus was going to rule on an earthly throne. Jesus corrected them.

The kingdom of God doesnt come with observation i.e it is not a fleshy event that would be noticed by the physical eye. The kingdom of God is within You. What Jesus was trying to say here was that the Kingdom of God is when God rules in Your heart. Not when Jesus rules on an earthly throne.

The Kingdom of satan is reigning because satan is enthroned in the heart of mankind:
Why do You think evil is the order of the day in our world today? Why do You think society is going from bad to worse everyday. Why do You think many people are enslaved to sin even against their wills?

It is because satan is enthroned in the heart of humanity. That is why 2 Tim 2:26 says:"And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil who are taken captive by "Him at his will".
 That is also the reason why the Bible states that he that commits sin is the servant of sin (John 8:34). We are all enslaved to the serpent's image of sin which is symbolized by the tree of knowledge and evil which our progenitors partook of and passed down to all their seed.

-Eph 2:2:"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now "worketh in" the children of disobedience."

 
-1 John 4:4: Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, "than he that is in the world".

 
-That which you seek is within you. Do not seek it without.Persius

 
-The sovereignity of the self over the self is liberty. Albert Pike

 
-If your God is not a feeling experience but is a believing experience then it is not God.Oprah Winfrey.

 
-We are as much god as god is a part of us...each of us is god together we are god this all for one and one for all...makes us the whole of God-Ruth Montgomery.

 
-...Lucifer works within us to bring us to wholeness as we move into the new age-David Spangler.

 
-The world can only change from within:Eckhart Tolle

It is very unfortunate that even occultists and mystics are aware that the kingdom of their father the devil is in the heart of humanity and many Chritians who are supposed to understand these facts are ignorant of them.

People like Albert Pike, Persius, Oprah Winfrey, Eckhart Tolle, Harold Klemp, Michael Owens and cults like the White Eagle Lodge and the Lucis Trust etc tell their adherents to search within themselves (remember sin lives within the heart of the unrepentant humanity) and that looking within ourselves is the key to achieving godhood, enlightenment and union with what they call the absolute: satan.
They teach their adherents that we all fragmented from the absolute lucifer and  hence we are fragments of him and it is the duty of all the fragments to unite and be in unity with the absolute which they fell from.
Even though many Christians either ignore these statements or state that they are blasphemous, they are very true. We all get our sinful natures from the satanic tree of the knowledge of good and evil (satan) so all our knowledge of self and our rebellious natures are fragments of the tree of rebellion. Satan's kingdom is when satan (the image of sin) is enthroned in our hearts.

God wants to be enthroned in your heart:
As you can see from the verses above, Jesus is now a spirit and is no more fleshy being. He has become a life giving spirit (1 Cor 15:45) and he wants to give you true life, eternal life. The life you think you have now is an illusion.

You are dead without God (Eph 2:1) and you need the true life to come and live in your heart. You need to seek Jesus who is outside of you and invite Him to come and live inside you.

Jesus came the 1st time in an earthly body to destroy (Read Rom 6:6) the sinful image (body) of sin since it is the image of sin and the desires of our earthly bodies that keep us separated from God and chained to sin.

He comes the second time in order to pass on his new spiritual nature to those who allow him to be enthroned in their hearts. It is at this time that the church would be able to Partially or fully (depending on their obedience) manifest Jesus in their bodies:
In the account of the creation of Man and Woman in the Bible, Eve (the woman) bore Adams image(the man) because Adams"Rib"Lived in her.So in order  to restore fallen humanity to Eden,We the church need to bear the image of the new Adam, Christ ( 1 Cor 15:49) whose Spirit ought to live and work in us.

It is when the church comes to perfection and bears the image of the new Man Jesus Christ and comes to a perfect understanding of Him (Eph 4:11-13) that God's kingdom will be established on Earth.There are so many Christians that say perfection is not possible on earth but that view is erroneous.

Jesus Himself said that he that is perfectly trained shall be as his Master. He also told us to be perfect as our Father in Heaven is perfect. He didnt tell us to wait till we leave the earth before we attain perfection.
Also, St Paul was confident enough to tell people to imitate him as he imitated Christ. That shows that He strove to be like Christ (the perfect one) in all he did.

Notice that in Rev 19:7-11 Jesus doesnt come until the Bride (the church) "made herself ready" and it was only when the bride made herself ready that she was granted to put on "white linen"which symbolizes righteousness.

In the same way, we must make ourselves ready for Jesus to rule in us. We must seek Him, We must submit to Him and strive for him to take over us (Gal 2:20) God wants to destroy the image of self and sin in us and take over us.That is why the Bible says in 1 Cor 6:19"......You are not your own."
Submitting to God means that you surrender to Him and accept His rule and will for your life. That is when you would be able to say like Jesus: Not my will but Yours be done.Because Your will will become his will.

When Christ takes complete control His church, the kingdom of God would come on the earth and that is when God's church would come to perfection and that is the time when the Church would rise to its responsibillity and confront and destroy the evil system of sin on earth.

As you can see from what I've written above, the Kingdom of satan is when satan is enthroned in humanity and the final objective of satan is uniting  the universally sinful humanity into one body and uniting the whole with him. Also, it is the time when sinful humanity would attain the heights of self realization (a non reliance on God,666)

On the other hand, the Kingdom of God is when God is enthroned in our hearts. When we can say like Christ not my will but Yours be done. When we enter into his rest and die to self.


When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. 2 Thess 1:10
The second coming of Christ is when Christ comes in His new spiritual form in the hearts of his Church and brings them to perfection and uses them to judge the world.

That is why Jude 1:14-15 says:..."The Lord comes with ten thousands of his saints to execute judgement upon all...." God is going to perfect His church here on earth and use them to judge the world.

1 John 4:3:"And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God this is the spirit of the Anti Christ whereof ye heard that it should come and even now it is in the world.

Many Christians use this verse to justify the fact that Jesus is coming in the flesh and that anyone that preaches that He is not coming in the flesh but in the hearts of His Church is an antichrist.

But they fail to understand the message that John was trying to pass accross.John didnt mean that Jesus was coming in the flesh, He meant that anyone who doesnt show in his flesh (by his deeds and actions) that Christ lives inside Him is an antichrist even if the person professes to know God.
That is why he used the term confesses. If Jesus spirit lives in you, it will "confess"(show forth) Christ's works in your flesh. If the spirit of the world (the anti christ spirit)lives in you, it will confess the self and satan.That is how we are to identify antchrists by their works & not by their profession.
 


So stop seeking Jesus from the physical sky. Wake up Church seek to know Jesus and let Him be enthroned in your hearts. Do not let his death for you be in vain.
