The Long-suffering of the Lord God

I am amazed at the long suffering of the Lord God Who is not willing that any should perish but that all be saved.

This is His Will! This is His Love!

Dearest Heavenly Father please teach us both individually and collectively as your church to see this life not only through your eyes but through the eyes of Your heart also.

“Thy Will Be Done on Earth as it is in Heaven”

Where Heaven Touches Earth

Where Heaven Touches Earth

When we walk in the Renewed Mind we are allowing the Mind of Christ to live within us.

This is also remaining connected to the True Vine and His Fruit is produced in us.

Truly without Him we can do nothing.

Let us who follow Christ ever learn to live as one and give praise and honorl to our Heavenly Father by renewing our minds to share His Love, mercy and grace with mankind.

This is where heaven touches earth.

What is the Kingdom of God?

What is the Kingdom of God?

How do we now live in the Kingdom of God?

Over the past years since I began investigating the subject of God’s Kingdom these questions have been asked of me many times.

One simple answer to the first question is:

The kingdom of God is God’s people in God’s place under God’s rule and God’s blessing.

The answer to the question of how we who are under the New Covenant should live as kingdom citizens is contained in the Gospels and doctrine of the Church Epistles.

In this context the Books of Acts is the record of believers joining together under what was called the Apostles Doctrine (Acts 2:42-47)

These books contain the instructions on how we should then live in love towards God and towards our fellow man.

A good place to begin learning how to live in the kingdom blessings may be found beginning in Roman 12:1-2 (KJV

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

I believe it is clear that we are to live our lives based on loving God with all of our mind, soul, heart and strength and loving our neighbor as we love ourselves.l

God has given every kingdom citizen the ability and tools to be able to renew their minds to be able to prove by test what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God is in their own lives.

So then What is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God?

I believe this is speaking of His kingdom lifestyle based in Love.

When we as God’s people renew our minds to live the Apostles Doctrine, then we are standing at the place where heaven meets earth.

“Thy Kingdom come
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in heaven”

The Kingdom of God is not Measured in the Abundance of Material Stuff

The Kingdom of God is not measured in the abundance of material stuff an individual possesses but in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

We as His followers desperately need to continue to learn from the scriptures and through our relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ how we must live the Kingdom Lifestyle.

A good starting place is found in the Gospels and the book of Acts.

Acts 2:42-47 is the example of God setting up His Kingdom Economy on Earth.

God’s plan is that His Kingdom comes and that His Will be done on earth as it is in heaven!

If we truly believe in Christ we must learn to carry our cross which is how we must live on earth today.

To carry Our cross is to follow the manner in which our Lord lived His life on earth.

In the Gospels we may learn from the example of Jesus of Nazareth how to live as a Kingdom Citizen.

The Kingdom Life is not a life of ease and luxury but a life of sacrificial living which begins with dying to self.

Your Thinking Can Change the Structure of Your Brain

“Your thinking can change the structure of your brain, which is called mind directed neuroplasticity. This ability of mere thought to alter the physical structure and function of our gray matter is powerful.” Dr. Caroline Leaf author of “Think Learn Succeed” pg 183”

Filling our minds with the truths found in the Bible is our primary defensive and offensive weapon against the forces of evil which are out to steal. Kill and destroy.

There are no greater thoughts to plant into your brain than the thoughts concerning the kingdom of God.

To occupy our minds with kingdom thoughts is to have righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

The Creators Providence

“Providence may be defined as that continued exercise of the divine energy whereby the Creator preserves all His creatures, is operative in all that comes to pass in the world, and directs all things to their appointed end.” Louis Berkhof

Job 10:12 (ESV)

“You have granted me life and steadfast love, and your care has preserved my spirit.”

In this I am fully persuaded that the Creator of the Heavens and Earth the Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, has extended His boundless love towards me from before my conception in my mother’s womb.

He has faithfully sustained my health and life by His Divine Providence.

Ephesians 1:2-10 (ESV)

“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.”

Knowing this I am also fully persuaded that my Heavenly Father will continue to lavish me with His love for eternity in His coming perfected kingdom.

Luke 12:32-36 (ESV)
32 “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

33 Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.

34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

35 “Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning,

36 and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the wedding feast, so that they may open the door to him at once when he comes and knocks.
