THE KINGDOM OF GOD-pt 1 “Field Of Treasure”

THE KINGDOM OF GOD-pt 1 “Field Of Treasure”

June 28, 2020

Matt. 13:44  The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 

The Treasure is Jesus Christ, Eternal King, LORD and Savior of the world.

The Field is The Kingdom of GOD/Heaven.

SO the Heart of Jesus’ message is that the Treasure and the Field are INSEPARABLE!  It is IMPOSSIBLE to have Jesus without selling off the world to possess His Kingdom.  

In other words, you can NOT possess the TREASURE of The Savior without relocating to The KINGDOM.  THIS is the Permanent, Unchangeable, Non-negotiable FACT of the KOG.  You either sellout to it or reject it.  There’s NO MIDDLE GROUND…No Time-share Plan.

“The Trap Of Offense—2020″

“The Trap Of Offense—2020″

June 21, 2020

Matt. 5:29 (KJV) And if your right eye OFFENDS you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell.

Matt. 5:29 (AMP) If your right eye serves as a TRAP TO ENSNARE YOU or is an occasion for you to stumble and sin, pluck it out and throw it away. It is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be cast into hell. 

Offense / Offend 

skan´-dal-on — “scandal” a stick trap (bent sapling), i.e. snare—a thing that offends, a stumbling block.

Satan’s Trap works through the part of you that reaches for the bait.  If it’s an eye or hand, Jesus said cut it off before it drags you to Hell. But what if it’s your attitude or thought that’s reaching to engage with something you don’t like or disagree with, that offends you?  In today’s culture of Victimization, Fault-finding, and Strife masquerading as Advocacy, people with Offended Attitudes are considered social heroes.  But Jesus says they’re just prisoners of offense.  And Jesus said, when it’s your Attitude that becomes stuck in The Trap of Offense, (just like the eye or hand) drop the issue before it enslaves you.  In fact, an offended attitude is the most damaging to your life because it enslaves Your Heart, which is the part of you through which faith and love must flow.

“I Will”

“I Will”

June 14, 2020

Mk. 1:40-41 And a leper came to Him, begging Him on his knees and saying to Him, If You are willing, You are able to make me clean.  And being moved with pity and sympathy, Jesus reached out His hand and touched him, and said to him, I am WILLING; be made clean! 

Jesus didn’t come so we’d know that GOD was able.  He came so we’d know GOD is WILLING!  The revelation of GOD never stops at His Abilities.  

Jesus IS GOD WILLING!! Read the rest of this entry »

And Justice For All

And Justice For All

June 7, 2020

JUSTICE is at the heart of America’s founding and what it stands for.  From our beginning lives have been stressed, given, and taken, in the effort to secure JUSTICE. It’s a huge topic involving a cross-section of Religion, Ethics, Philosophy, & Law.  And there are several subsets of the application of Justice, the most common of which are:

  • Distributive Justice—Fairness in Economics
  • Procedural Justice—Fairness in Process
  • Restorative Justice—Fairness in Restitution
  • Retributive Justice—Fairness in Punishment

Since the murder of George Floyd, and all the protests, violence, and destruction that followed in response, we have heard endless commentary and accusation in an effort to explain what Justice is, and who’s at fault when it fails.  But GOD has expressed an underlying context in which JUSTICE, in all it’s forms and applications, must be understood for it to be the blessing to society He has intended for us. Here is His commentary on JUSTICE, why it fails, and how it’s restored…
