Since my wife and I have begun teaching the Kingdom of God and reading in God's Constitution how that was the only message the King Jesus preached and taught, many have departed from our association. I will contribute that to the refining of the Kingdom in our lives. You see, the Kingdom of God starts from within but it surely doesn't end there. It goes from what you are, to what you do. But the humanistic ethical system ( the world system) works from the outward to the inward. This system will end up being futile. This is a heaven born system. The Kingdom of God is working from the inward and is manifesting itself to the outer ends, by being fruitful and the fruitfulness is on a universal scale. Here is what Jesus stated to the religious leaders of His day: "...The Kingdom of God does not come with observation, nor will they say 'See here!' for indeed, the Kingdom of God is within you".
As you embrace the Kingdom concept, you will feel and see the effects of what Christ was speaking up on the mountain concerning the Beatitudes. "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden".
Do you now see the effects of one full with the Holy Spirit? One that embraces the Kingdom in its fullness. If you may or may not have noticed, Jesus stated that you cannot be hidden. So if you claim to be a citizen of the Kingdom, and fail to behave in a manner that is conducive, then you fall in the category of hypocrite. This is why it is so important to study and read God's principles and laws.
Remember: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven".
Luke 17:20a & 21 Matthew 5:13-14 Matthew 5:16
