This is the Good News about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. It began just as the prophet Isaiah had written: “Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, and he will prepare your way. He is a voice shouting in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming! Clear the road for him!’” This messenger was John the Baptist. He was in the wilderness and preached that people should be baptized to show that they had repented of their sins and turned to God to be forgiven.
The Gospel of Matthew recorded it like this: In those days John the Baptist came to the Judean wilderness and began preaching. His message was, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near." The prophet Isaiah was speaking about John when he said, “He is a voice shouting in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming! Clear the road for him!’”
One message, "The Kingdom of God is at hand". One goal: to restore and redeem mankind to his Creator, Source and King. There was no other message that the Lord Jesus came to deliver to the human race. The Lord Jesus preached and taught that same message the whole time He was here on earth. He didn't preach on prosperity, how to get wealth, how to stay young or how to be free from all diseases. It was all about obedience to the Lord God's Son, Jesus the Christ, which will lead to being restored to our rightful place in the Kingdom. “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." We, as citizens and ambassadors of the Kingdom, should be preaching and clarifying the Kingdom government to this present age; not spreading the word of condemnation to the world. This world is already condemned because of their disobedience. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.
Remember, we as citizens of the Kingdom of heaven are reborn to assist others in surrendering their lives to the King and to make His Kingdom our first priority. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. It is not our responsibility to condemn any human, the Constitution of the Lord God will do that. It is our responsibility to live a life full of His Spirit, teaching others through our behavior how to live. Remember, He wasn't only the Word. In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone....
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
If you aren't preaching and teaching the Kingdom government Gospel, then you are preaching another gospel. Do you recall what ambassador Paul wrote to the people of Galatia? I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.
Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.
Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. Let's get with King Jesus' program and stop acting like we have a lifetime to be here on this earth. You are to learn the Kingdom Gospel, then apply it to your life. Then take the time to teach others how to apply the Gospel of the Kingdom to their lives. The key to all that I have stated is obedience to the Lord God's Constitution. Anything else isn't necessary. The Lord Jesus made it plain. Stop trying to get to His Father while ignoring Him. “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.”
“No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!” There are far too many people calling on God, but ignoring His Son. It just won't work. The Lord Jesus is our Redeemer. He is the One that the Lord God sent to restore mankind. He is the One who has all authority. Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth." Only He restores.
Remember, your greatest and most valuable asset is your faith in the King.
