“They may have taken praying out of schools but not out of God’s children.”
Thank you Jesus!
And nations shall be led by little children who know God and his Christ.
Become like a child with our Eternal Father, not childish but child-like, and enter the kingdom of heaven on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 18:3). Christ in you is the hope of glory, God’s delight in you when you delight in the Lord and he gives you the deepest desire of your spiritual heart: his presence come to live in your spirit and soul and body.
There are three more days to finish reading Matthew by asking Holy Spirit to open the Word and pour his life and Spirit into you, so we can focus as a nation on Mark for the rest of August (https://newheavenonearth.wordpress.com/2019/08/05/call-to-disarm/)
“Man shall not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4)
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied” Matthew 5:6
The kingdom of God is righteousness (Christ come in you) that leads to peace (in this world you will have tribulation but in Christ there is peace that surpasses all understanding) that leads to joy in the Holy Spirit.
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” ~Jesus in Matthew 4:17
Now the Holy Spirit witnesses to Jesus’ teaching, preaching, healing, deliverance and freedom, found in Christ and Christ in you.
Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things of Christ will be added unto you. John the Baptist baptized with water for repentance and forgiveness of sins; Jesus baptizes with Holy Spirit and fire, to dissolve the old and form the new in you: a holy new spirit, a righteous new soul (mind of Christ, heart of compassion, will to do the Will of God our Father), and a body filled with the Holy Spirit making you a new temple of God. Jesus destroyed the external temple, no stone left unturned in 70 AD. Now we come to glorified Jesus to be made a new temple of God.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” Matthew 5:8
Enter by the narrow gate of Jesus; for the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction following your own way, feelings, and what you decide is truth or love, for many follow the the ways of this dark world. For the gate is narrow and the way hard to go against the culture, what is currently popular, that leads to death for momentary “lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” but those who find Christ, and Christ in you, find eternal life now and is to come (Matthew 7:13-14).
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden with depression, anxiety, fear and doubts, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you; bind your soul to Me, and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble-hearted, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” ~Jesus in Matthew 11:28-29
“For you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to this world it is not given…To him who has Christ, more will be given and you will have abundance; but from him who doesn’t have Christ, even what you have will be taken away…because seeing they can’t see, and hearing they can’t hear, nor do they have spiritual understanding” Jesus in Matthew 13:11-58
“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven” Jesus in Matthew 16:19
“Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom” Jesus in Matthew 16:28
“Not all men can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given” Jesus in Matthew 19:11
“Every one who has left houses or brothers and sisters or father or mother or children or lands for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. But many that are first will be last and the last first” Jesus in Matthew 19:29-30
Come out of this world; come to Christ.
Jesus says to you, “What do you want me to do for you?” Matthew 20:32
The kingdom of heaven is like the marriage feast of the Father and his Lamb; all are invited to partake, “Behold, I have made ready my dinner…everything is ready; come to the marriage feast…The wedding is ready, but those invited first didn’t come, so I invite all the Gentiles, as many as the King’s servants can find, both good and bad to fill the wedding hall with guests. When the King comes, those without his white wedding garment are cast into the outer darkness where men will weep and gnash their teeth. For many are called, but few choose the Way, the Truth, the Life of the Righteous One to reconcile with our Righteous, Just, Holy God, the Eternal Father (Matthew 22:1-14).
“Woe to you world rulers and governments and religions that shut the kingdom of heaven against the people; for you neither enter yourselves, nor allow those who would enter to go in. Woe to you who make people of this world twice as much a child of hell as yourselves. Woe to you, blind guides…You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you going to escape being sentenced to hell?” Matthew 23:13-39
“I gather my children as a hen gathers her brood under her wings” Jesus in Matthew 23:37
“The Son of Righteousness will rise in you with healing in his wings” Malachi 4:2
“Take heed that no one leads you astray” Jesus in Matthew 24:4
“The kingdom of heaven is like ten maidens waiting for the Bridegroom. Five were foolish and did not make sure they had plenty of oil in their lamps (Holy Spirit in their body temple). The wise five had plenty of oil, fire and eyes to see (in Revelation ch. 1, 4, 5: the seven spirits from the throne of God need to replace the seven demonic spirits of this world and the god of this world influencing you); the Bridegroom came and they went in with him to the marriage feast; and the DOOR WAS SHUT. Afterwards the foolish come and say, ‘Lord, lord, open to us’ but he replies, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour” Matthew 25:1-13
“All authority and power is given to Jesus in heaven and on earth” Matthew 28:18
I’m with Him; what about you?
