In this society, where social media dominates many individuals’ lives, many have lost confidence in the Lord God’s constitution. They think that it is just a book of religious stories. That is because religion has made it of no effect. They fail to obey King Jesus’ command and they fail to have any power in their lives. And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the Kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. Luke 12:29-31 NKJV
Always remember that the Kingdom is a government and not a religion of any sort. Read what Isaiah prophesied many years before: For a Child is born to us, a Son is given to us. The government will rest on His shoulders. And He will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen! Isaiah 9:6-7 Notice there is no mention of a religion of any kind. That is because our King isn’t a King of any religion, but a Kingdom government. Mankind made up the religions of this world and the evil one is behind it all. Religion is a misrepresentation of our Lord and King Jesus and the Kingdom of God. This is a fallen world and the Lord God isn’t the ruler of it, the evil one is. Listen to what the Lord Jesus stated to His disciples. I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does take place, you may believe and have faith [in Me]. I will not speak with you much longer, for the ruler of the world (Satan) is coming. And he has no claim on Me [no power over Me nor anything that he can use against Me]; but so that the world may know [without any doubt] that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father has commanded Me [and act in full agreement with Him]. John 14:29-31 AMP
When you totally trust in Him and His Word, He will give you the Holy Spirit—our Governor. The King always protects His citizens. He will be with you and in your mortal bodies. If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:15-17 NKJV
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself. 1 Corinthians 6:19
When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, everywhere you go, the Kingdom is there. Everywhere you go, you have the choice to become like the culture of the world, or to allow the Kingdom within you to change the culture around you.
Remember, your faith in His Word is your greatest asset in the Kingdom of God.
