And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22
I realized at that very moment that the evil one was making an attempt to discourage me. I recall what my Lord and King stated to His Disciples. And when you go into a household, greet it. If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city! Matthew 10:12-15 Notice He didn’t say stop and make an attempt to convince them of the Kingdom. Realize that there will be times on this earth that you will feel as if you are all alone with the Kingdom message, but you are not alone. The Holy Spirit, our Kingdom Governor, will guide you every step of the way. Let Him lead and guide you with His Kingdom message.
Remember what King Jesus said concerning the Governor. “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. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. John 14:15-18 He stated that He will not leave us alone here on this earth as orphans! He also stated if you love Him and keep His commands His Father will make their home with us. He was speaking of the Governor—the Holy Spirit.
Keep in mind that the Kingdom of God and Heaven is eternal. Remember what King Jesus stated to Nicodemus. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:14-15 This is one of the reasons that the Kingdom message is unique. Jesus is also why the Kingdom message is unique. He gave His promise to us. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are One. John 10:28-30 Yes, His Father agrees with this because they are One.
Remember that the Lord God always keeps His Word and promises. Ambassador Paul made it clear when he said that the Lord God couldn’t lie. Paul, a bondservant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect and the acknowledgment of the truth which accords with godliness, in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began. . . Titus 1:1-2 This is in agreement with the Word from the Lord God that the prophet Balaam spoke to Balak. “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Behold, I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.” Numbers 23:19-20
This is yet another reason why the Kingdom message is unique. He is not like mankind that He should have to lie. Whatever He speaks is Truth.
Last, but not least of all, the Kingdom message is unique because it is the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven government, come to earth through our Lord and King, Jesus the Christ. It is a message that is hard for anyone of a religious background to see. But once you see it, you cannot unsee it and your mindset is forever changed, by the power and wisdom of our Governor, the Holy Spirit!
He replied, “You are permitted to understand the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven, but others are not. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them.
That is why I use these parables; For they look, but they don’t really see. They hear, but they don’t really listen or understand. This fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah that says,
‘When you hear what I say, you will not understand. When you see what I do, you will not comprehend. For the hearts of these people are hardened, and their ears cannot hear, and they have closed their eyes—so their eyes cannot see, and their ears cannot hear, and their hearts cannot understand, and they cannot turn to Me and let Me heal them.’
“But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear. I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, but they didn’t see it. And they longed to hear what you hear, but they didn’t hear it.” Matthew 13:11-17 NLT
Yes! Always remember that His message is unique and we, His citizens, are unique all the way down to our DNA and our fingerprints! But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light.
“Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” 1 Peter 2:9-10 NLT
Remember, your greatest asset is your faith in the Word of the living God.
