To the beloved of Christ,

 

First a great report from John (in the war zone)….  Bible study was accidentally scheduled at the same time as the AA meeting. A man found himself at the wrong meeting and ended up getting saved! God is good.

 

WOW!!!!!  Way to Go J.D…. and Holy Spirit, Jesus and Poppa!

 

Devotional:

 

John 3:3  Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."

 

John 3:5  Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

 

Unless a man is born again he cannot even “see” the Kingdom of God… Unless a person is touched by the Spirit of God he cannot enter The Kingdom of God.

 

What is missing in our study of this is “death”… 
This is how this passage is portrayed in our teaching and theology….

 

Unless one is born again he cannot go to Heaven when he dies….  If you choose to accept baptism in the Holy Spirit (which is not necessary in some circles) you get to go to Heaven when you die!

 

Here is the problem…. when you die the Kingdom of God comes into play!!!!! This is not what Jesus taught!!!!!!

 

He said if a man be born again He could see the Kingdom of God…its working, reality, and evidence!  If you proceed further you can enter the Kingdom of God as a Son or Daughter, and live a Kingdom life….NOW!  Here!  “With all evidences and signs and wonders following you and the same glory I have will rest upon you, and you will do greater things than I”…. (Paraphrased many of Jesus’ teachings)

 

Why have we allowed for so long teaching to be about getting into Heaven, not living in the Kingdom, NOW?  I truly believe people need to get saved and touched by His power…. But as I told Brother Gil yesterday, “I want to see the saved walk in the fullness of Jesus. There are enough people trying and preaching for people to get born again, like 95% of the entire church family in some form or another, but who is talking to the believer about living in the Kingdom of God…Preaching and instructing the saints on what Jesus taught, preached and exemplified.”

 

You see I don’t want others to stop getting people saved… I just want the truth of Jesus’ message “The Kingdom of God is Here.” to be proclaimed to the believer!  Each of us walking in authority, power, glory, signs wonders and miracles!

 

Shabba… now that is a bride in preparation!

 

In Love Pastor Frank
