HOW TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD

MATTHEW 11:28 – COME UNTO TO ME, ALL YE THAT LABOUR AND ARE HEAVY LADEN, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST.

JESUS THE KING GIVES AN INVITATION TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

PEOPLE WAS LABOURING AND BURDENED UNDER THE TRADITIONS OF MEN, UNDER ORAL LAWS ADDED TO MOSES LAW.

THE BURDEN UNDER THE LAW WAS BECOMING HEAVY, HEAVY BURDENS. THE LAW WAS A SCHOOLMASTER TO BRING US TO CHRIST. OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS AS FILTHY RAG’S. MAN MUST HAVE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. THE LAW BECAME WORK’S OF RIGHTEOUSNESS BY RELIGIOUS PEOPLE WITHOUT FAITH.  THAT WAS NOT GOD’S INTENT, PEOPLE BEGAN TO WORSHIP THEIR WORKS AND NOT THEIR GOD.

RELIGIOUS SYSTEMS WILL NOT BRING GRACE AND TRUTH, WORKS ARE THE PRODUCT OF FAITH.

THERE MUST BE REDEMPTION AND REVELATION, MAN CAN’T  PRODUCE THIS, IT CAN ONLY COME FROM GOD.

WHEN JESUS SAID COME UNTO ME ALL YE THAT LABOUR AND ARE HEAVY LADEN.

HE WANTED SOMEONE WITH FAITH SAY, YES YOU ARE THE MESSIAH, YOU ARE THE REDEEMER. PETER GOT THIS REVELATION FROM THE FATHER’

NOW JEW OR GENTILE CAN ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD BY THIS REVELATION, THEY CAN RECEIVE THE NEW BIRTH.

JOHN 3:3 – JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM, VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

1ST PETER 1:23 -BEING BORN AGAIN, NOT OF CORRUPTIBLE SEED, BUT OF INCORRUPTIBLE, BY THE WORD OF GOD, WHICH LIVETH AND ABIDETH FOREVER.

JOHN 1:1,2 –IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD.

THE SAME WAS IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD.

JESUS IS THE WORD MADE FLESH, THE SECOND PERSON OF THE GODHEAD. THE LAMB OF GOD, THE SINLESS SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS, JEW OR GENTILE, WHOSOEVER WILL LET HIM COME.

JOHN 1: 11-14

HE CAME UNTO HIS OWN, AND HIS OWN RECEIVED HIM NOT.

BUT AS MANY AS RECEIVED  HIM, TO THEM GAVE HE POWER TO BECOME THE sons OF GOD, EVEN TO THEM THAT BELIEVE ON HIS NAME, WHICH WERE BORN, NOT OF BLOOD, NOR OF THE WILL OF THE FLESH, NOR OF THE WILL OF MAN, BUT OF GOD.

AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US, (AND WE BEHELD HIS GLORY, THE GLORY AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER) FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH.

ISAIAH 7:14 – THEREFORE THE LORD HIMSELF WILL GIVE YOU A SIGN: BEHOLD A VIRGIN SHALL CONCEIVE, AND BEAR A SON, AND SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL (GOD WITH US).

GENESIS 3:15 AND I WILL PUT ENMITY BETWEEN THEE AND THE WOMAN AND BETWEEN THY SEED AND HER SEED: IT SHALL BRUISE THY HEAD, AND THOU SHALT BRUISE HIS HEEL.

THE SEED OF THE WOMAN IS THE VIRGIN BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST.

THE SEED OF ABRAHAM IS JESUS.

GALATIANS 3:16 – NOW TO ABRAHAM AND HIS SEED WERE THE PROMISES MADE, HE SAITH NOT, AND TO SEEDS, AS OF MANY; BUT AS OF ONE, AND TO THY SEED, WHICH IS CHRIST.

WE WERE ALL BORN INTO SIN BECAUSE OF THE FALL OF MANKIND IN THE LOINS OF THE IST ADAM.

WITHOUT THE NEW BIRTH WE ARE ALL UNRIGHTEOUS, NO GOOD WORKS WILL MAKE US RIGHTEOUS, NO RELIGIOUS GROUPE CAN MAKE US RIGHTEOUS.

WE ARE SINNERS NEEDING  FORGIVENESS, AND NEEDING A SAVIOUR.

JESUS SAID COME UNTO ME ALL YE.

WE ARE ONLY COMPLETE IN HIM, WE CAN ONLY REST IN HIS REDEMPTIVE WORK ON THE CROSS. IF YOU CAN BELIEVE THIS REPORT YOU HAVE REVELATION OF WHO JESUS IS. 

GOD SO LOVED THE LOST WORLD HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.

JESUS IS THAT REST, HE SAID IT IS FINISHED. THER IS NO OTHER WAY TO GOD THAN THE CHRIST. GOD HAS NO OTHER PLAN TO REDEEM MANKIND.

THIS REDEMPTION COMES FROM GOD, THIS REVELATION COMES FROM GOD. THIS IS HIS PART.

THE RESPONSIBILITY TO OBEY AND RECEIVE IT IS UP TO US, THE RESPONSIBILITY TO FOLLOW HIM IS OURS.

HE WANTS TO GOVERN OUR LIFE, BY HIS WORD, AND BY HIS SPIRIT, AND BRING US INTO HIS PURPOSE FOR OUR LIFE. HE IS THE KING OF GLORY.

PRAY THIS PRAYER AND LEARN OF HIM, THAT IS THE PART WE ARE RESPONABLE FOR, LET THE YOKE OF HIS KINGDOM GOVERNMENT COME UPON US AND LEARN OF HIM.

PRAY, JESUS I BELIEVE YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD, MY REDEEMER, COME INTO MY HEART, I GIVE YOU MY LIFE.

IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER, AND MEANT IT WITH YOU HEART, IF YOU HAVE A BIBLE READ THE BOOK OF JOHN 1ST AND THEN READ MATTHEW, MARK, AND LUKE AND THE REST OF THE NEW TESTAMENT BEFORE YOU READ THE OLD.

WELCOME TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

IF YOU PRAYED THIS PRAYER AND ACCEPTED JESUS AS YOUR LORD, PLEASE EMAIL ME AND I WILL PUT YOU ON OUR PRAYER LIST.

THE TRIED

BEING TRIED IS NOT THE EASIEST PART OF BEING A CHILD OF GOD.

WE ARE TRIED MANY TIMES BY THE USE OF FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, CHURCH MEMBERS, AND ENEMIES OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.

WE ARE TRIED BY OUR OWN IMAGINATIONS GOING WILD.

WE ARE TRIED BY BY OUR REACTIONS TO CERTAIN SITUATIONS.

WE ARE ALWAYS ON THE BATTLEFIELD AS WE SERVE THE LORD. BUT WHAT WE HAVE TO REMEMBER IS, I SAMUEL 17:47b – THE BATTLE IS THE LORD’S.

WE DON’T HAVE TO FIGHT OUR BATTLES.

TRIALS COME, MY FRIEND, THEY COME.

BUT WE SHOULD REMEMBER: TRIALS ARE LIKE A TUNNEL. THEY HAVE A BEGINNING AND AN END. WE CAN SEE LIGHT AT THE END OF A TUNNEL. BUT WHILE GOING THROUGH A TUNNEL, THERE IS DARKNESS BEFORE THE LIGHT.

BUT AS CHRISTIANS, WE HAVE THE SENSE THAT WE ARE STILL MOVENG FORWARD, NO MATTER HOW DARK IT MAY SEEM.

THIS IS LIKE THE TIMES WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF BEING TRIED. WE REALIZE HOW POWERFUL THE GRACE OF GOD REALLY IS: HOW HE IS IN CHARGE, BECAUSE WE HAVE NO STRENGTH OF OUR OWN.

OUR TRUST CANNOT BE THE FLESH; FLESH WON’T HELP: IT HAS TO BE GOD WHO IS CARRYING US THROUGH.

PSALM 66:8-12 –  O BLESS OUR GOD, YE HIS PEOPLE, AND MAKE THE VOICE OF HIS PRAISE BE HEARD:

WHICH HOLDETH OUR SOUL IN LIFE, AND SUFFERETH NOT OUR FEET TO BE MOVED.

FOR THOU O GOD, HAST PROVED US; HAS TRIED US AS SILVER IS TRIED

SILVER, ACCORDING TO ANCIENT METHODS, REQUIRED A PROLONGED PROCESS OF REFINING BEFORE IT COULD BE PRONOUNCED PURE.

SO YOU COULD SAY IT THIS WAY, “YOU, THROUGH A LONG PROCESS, HAVE PURIFIED US WITH FIRE.”

VERSES 11,12 – THOU BROUGHTEST US INTO THE NET; THOU LAIDEST AFFLICTION UPON OUR LOINS. THOU HAST CAUSED MEN TO RIDE OVER OUR HEADS; WE WENT THROUGH THE FIRE AND THROUGH  WATER: BUT THOU BROUGHTEST US OUT INTO A WEALTHY PLACE. 

THE MEANING IS, YOU CRUSHED US DOWN UNDER A HEAVY WEIGHT, OR LAID GREAT BURDENS ON OUR BACKS. MEN CAME AGAINST US TO HARM US, BUT IN THE END, YOU BROUGHT US OUT INTO WEALTH AND GREAT ABUNDANCE, A PLACE OF REFRESHMENT, A PLACE OF LIBERTY.

VERSES 16-20 – COME AND HEAR, ALL YE THAT FEAR GOD, AND I WILL DECLARE WHAT HE HATH DONE FOR MY SOUL. I CRIED UNTO HIM WITH MY MOUTH, AND HE WAS EXTOLLED (OR CELEBRATED) WITH MY TONGUE.  

IN ALL THESE VERSES, IT SEEMS THE PSALMIST HAS BEEN THROUGH A TERRIBLE TRIAL. HE BEGAN TO PRAISE GO WITH HIS MOUTH AND TELL OTHERS HOW GOD BROUGHT HIM OUT.

BUT GOD DID MORE THAN JUST BRING HIM OUT OF HIS TRIAL, HE MOVED HIM INTO A PLACE OF REFRESHMENT, A PLACE OF LIBERTY, A PLACE OF BLESSING.

HE WAS ELEVATED INTO ANOTHER LEVEL WITH GOD BY THE PASSING OF THIS GREAT TRIAL.

I BELIEVE THIS HAPPENS TO US AFTER WE HAVE BEEN TRIED.
