Powerful words were spoken by Jesus and the theme of his ministry, the Good News – Gospel of the Kingdom. Matthew 24: 14.
Although the world slips further and deeper into turmoil we have Good News.
The primary needs we think of are:
However, Jesus made an interesting statement about life and what it really requires to be productive and meaningful Matthew 4: 4 “But he answered: “It is written: ‘Man must live, not on bread alone, but on every word that comes from Jehovah’s mouth.’” In chapter 5 he begins the happiness list with verse 3 “Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need, since the Kingdom of the heavens belongs to them.
So the common needs are physical, emotional and spiritual. The balance of these needs keeps us alive.
Think about it food without exercise is damaging, life without emotional support is lonely and often hollow, life without spiritual things is lacking “Hope”. Hope is the product of Faith because we see the meaning of things that have yet to unfold and understand the meaning.
The Kingdom Manifesto
Jesus made it clear as the empowered ruler of that kingdom his government heal the sick, feed the starving, housed the homeless, provided equality, equity and justice. Things other rulers have desired.
There are no boundaries in truth the immigration policy is very simple, to become a citizen, learn the rules, accept the direction and leadership of the assigned government, demonstrate you live up to these standards, dedicate your life (swear allegiance to God), show everyone else by getting baptised and never get involved in the affairs of any other country.
This creates a place where there are no wars, it pays to be honest and kind, colour, ethnicity and culture are left at the border along with ego and the desire to get rich. The aim of these people is to share the bounties of life and ensure peace. Not through an absence of conflict based on who is the strongest but based on the determination to live by the golden rule.
La La Land
If you have determined this is impossible and those who believe it living in La La Land then probably your mind is made up that we have no real control over our future. We live and die, becoming fertilizer for future generations.
However, if this is the life you really want then find out why Jesus, his followers and millions of people today have put their trust in God and pray fervently for his “kingdom to come,” his “will to be done, as it is in heaven here on the earth”
To find out more study the bible and look at what the Kingdom of the Heavens has achieved to this time and what it is poised to achieve now. Enjoy Life and Choose Life because it is offered to you personally as the reward for advocating the Kingdom of the heavens.
When you see these things start to occur – lift up your head because your deliverance is near.
To those in the Ukraine and Russia remember human governments create borders but God’s Kingdom is Universal so staking out a plot in someone else’s kingdom inevitably leads to confrontation and those who have chosen God’s Kingdom will only need to stay firm, remain courageous and they will see the salvation of the living God Jehovah.
