Why is it that True Christianity seems to have taken a back seat when it comes to the dynamic impact it once enjoyed during the first century and in other historical events of the past?
Could it be the one reason the greatest impact regarding every aspect of life has not been fully realized is due to the neglect of the ONE PURPOSE Jesus of Nazareth was born to accomplish?
Perhaps now is as good a time as any to consider and re-evaluate the direction today’s Christianity is moving.
Christ did not come to reveal another “Fad,” but He came to plant the seeds of the Kingdom of God through His preaching of the Gospel. The four gospels seem to indicate that the main focus of Christ was to herald out the Good News of the Kingdom of God.
History has shown that Israel missed it totally. Christianity once had it but somewhere along the line replaced the preaching of the Kingdom of God with everything else but. To the contrary, the only thing that was on Jesus Christ’s mind was “the gospel of the Kingdom Of God.”
He preached the Kingdom.
He taught the Kingdom.
He lived the Kingdom.
Today many churches seem have taken the path of least resistance by introducing a new fad every time someone comes up with a new idea for evangelism. Unfortunately today’s church goer seems to be enamored with fresh fire, or a new wind instead of embracing the ancient paths.
If what I am saying is true, then it is past the time for the followers of Christ to awake to the Good News of The Kingdom of God and learn how to live dynamically therein.
Towards the end of Christ earthly ministry He charged His disciples to “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” The men and women who were obedient to this charge literally changed the world for the better. Wrought Miracles. Cast out devils and brought empires to their knees.
How can this be so?
Because the preached words of the kingdom have the God-given power to positively impact civilization. The preached word of the kingdom sets up a spiritually clean atmosphere where mighty works may supernaturally take place.
Later we will go though the book of Acts to locate and document where and how these mighty divine works of God took place.
When Christ said, “I am come that ye might have life and have it more abundantly” He was not speaking of material things only but He was speaking of the Kingdom of God where God’s way of living rules and are available to all who choose to follow Jesus Christ the King of the Kingdom.
