In this so called "United States", there are many different religions and denominations, causing much division. They divide mankind from acknowledging the Lord God's Son, Jesus the Christ. In the ambassador's letter to the believers in Corinth, Paul made this statement: I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.
Those who have embraced the Kingdom concept only have one allegiance and that is to the Lord Jesus. They are the ones allowing the Governor (the Holy Spirit) to lead and guide them. Having said that, many fail to live the Kingdom life because they either don't have the Governor or fail to listen to His leading and guidance. In either case, they will wind up being a hindrance to the Kingdom message because people believe what others do more than what they say.
When you embrace God's Constitution, it will lead to the Father God giving you His gift of the Holy Spirit (our Governor). Remember, the Lord God and His Word are one. The Father and I are one. In order to truly walk in the Kingdom life's blessings and be prosperous in all areas of your life, you must be of the same mind; just as those who are building a house, must all have the same mindset, the same blueprints and "be on the same page", so to speak. In order to get this Kingdom message out into the world effectively, we must all be on the same wavelength. Ambassador Paul, in his letter to the citizens in Philippi, wrote Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.
Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. Having the Holy Spirit guiding and leading us will keep us in line with His Constitution and there won't be any divisions among the citizens of the Kingdom. Well, I suppose many of you will ask, how is this going to happen? Stay in His Word and a transformation will take place. You have to surrender your body, soul (mind, will and emotions) and spirit to the Governor. Ambassador Paul made it clear to the Roman believers: And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Keep in mind, every individual who has a mind for business surrounds themselves with others who have a mind for business. Like minds attract. The Lord Jesus made this statement while He was here on earth concerning the Holy Spirit (our Governor): Anyone who doesn’t love me will not obey me. And remember, my words are not my own. What I am telling you is from the Father who sent me. I am telling you these things now while I am still with you. But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—He will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.
I must share this one thing with you. You must first start the process of being detoxed from those thoughts, ways and behaviors that are contrary to God's Word and His Kingdom. That will only take place by you submerging your thoughts and mind in His Word (Constitution). You may think I keep hammering on this one thing; but this one thing is all that counts. People seek for the "keys to the Kingdom" but this one IS the one key you need. When you get this, all else will fall into place. Make the Kingdom your top priority. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
I remind you, the Kingdom of God isn't a religion, but it is a government. We should prepare our minds to be challenged by those of a religious mindset. So then, since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with the same attitude He had, and be ready to suffer, too. For if you have suffered physically for Christ, you have finished with sin.
I also feel led to remind you, Kingdom citizens do not get entangled in religious debates. King Jesus did not get caught up in religious debates. Speak the Gospel of the Kingdom. You are called to speak it, but not to convince anyone. If they don't receive it, shake the dust off your shoes, move forward and keep preaching the Kingdom! If any household or town refuses to welcome you or listen to your message, shake its dust from your feet as you leave. I tell you the truth, the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah will be better off than such a town on the judgment day.
And always remember that your greatest asset is your faith in the King (Jesus the Christ).
