Kingdom of God is Within You
E-mail: Why not seek the kingdom of God and THEN all of these things shall be added to you.
Because the kingdom of God is within you and has the assembly or synagogue of Christ as its only external component. However, to the extent the kingdom of God is within you God in Christ, the Holy Spirit, will produce fruit in helping the weak and helpless. God doesn't "take up collections" because He has paid the price in full. The kingdom of God within you breaks into the open when those who have prospered voluntarily give to the destitute: Jesus said "no middle man" or third hand. There is no LAW such as that of giving. The kingdom of God will have the Pauls who labored to the point of travail so that he would not be a robber: you cannot sell the free water of the Word. The minister such as Timothy was to do such labor so that HE could sponsor the Agape to feed the destitute on their way out to the "town square" hoping some one would hire him for the day.
It is very difficult to objectively discuss a Biblical principle or debate or take issue with what you believe to be false teaching without being branded some kind of RACA type.
However, even if one is an atheist it is possible to know and care more about the Biblical documents than a "saint." For instance, we need to listen as Thomas Paine--the Deist who does not believe in inspiration--defines the nature of being a "Christian" from the Biblical perspective. Consistent with the Bible looked at objectively, He believes that religionist who superstruct earthly kingdoms produce all of the atheists. As a child he watched a small lad "slowly twisting in the wind" at the normal crossroads gallows put there by the local priest for stealing bread. But the kingdom of God is within.
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Ro.14:17
Righteousness and peace is in the HUMAN spirit. Therefore, joy is in the human spirit. This is why Christ gives us A holy spirit (Acts 2:38) or A good conscience only at baptism.
That is why Paul in Romans 15 defined the "synagogue" or school of Christ which is the only external work of the kingdom. He said that we should not PLEASURE ourselves which speaks of mental excitement, but to speak with one mind and one voice "that which is written." We can glorify God only with what God has given to us.
This is why Jesus said "go make DISCIPLES." Disciples are students. Therefore, seeking the kingdom consists of understanding the KING and the ekklesia (not church) which is a synagogue or school of the Bible.
Jesus said in Luke:
And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Luke 17:20
And Paul warned the converts who worshipped God in the new PLACE of the human spirit.
But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Gal 4:9
Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. Ga.4:10
I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain. Gal 4:11
Neither shall they say, Lo here or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17: 21
Just as God through Amos warned about STARVING the people to death by not teaching the Word, and modern preachers dismiss the problem as a "bad mental attitude," those playing the KINGDOM of the world will not and cannot see what is highly visible to those who live and worship in the PLACE of the human spirit devoted to the Spirit of Truth.
Jesus clearly said that the PARABLES OF THE KINGDOM intend to HIDE kingdom truth from those who have already rejected God and His Word. In fact, when the people demanded a king "like the nations" they FIRED the Spirit of Christ Who CAST them out to worship like the nations but insisted that the ceremonial legalism of sacrifice and music was to lead them into captivity and death. That death sentence had been imposed at Mount Sinai because of the Musical Idolatry and worship of the Egyptian TRIAD. (See Matthew 13) See the Musical, Polytheistic worship at Mount Sinai.
And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. Luke 17: 22
And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. Luke 17: 23
For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. Luke 17: 24
The people didn't grasp the first advent and will not grasp the second. The lightening has flashed:
Astrape (g796) as-trap-ay'; from 797; lightning; by anal. glare: - lightning, bright shining.
It may seem that darkness is overwhelming the world as "christianism" makes a massive industry out of trying to build a secular kingom. However, God only needs a few candles here and there to dispel the darkness. Christ the Holy Spirit promised to be with us as another or fuller comforter. Even now:
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: Mt.28:3
If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. Lu.11:36
Just thrill at being able to see the LIGHTENING level grow aw we watch the "little mountains" call on programs or the rocks to protect them from the glare of God's truth!
And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. Re.4:5
These seven spirits are all related to KNOWLEDGE (Isa 11:1-4)
Only the INTERNET now permits the kingdom within to spread out like lightening to bypass those determined to keep the word and Jesus silenced: He now speaks like thunder:
And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. Re.8:5
Cast is in Greek:
Ballo (g906) bal'-lo; a prim. verb; to throw (in various applications, more or less violent or intense): - arise, cast (out), * dung, lay, lie, pour, put (up), send, strike, throw (down), thrust. Comp. 4496.
I am just dumbfounded that when the MINSTRELS wanted to perform their religious worship ritual Jesus CAST THEM out like dung. The Greek literature is filled with evidence which connects the dung heap, the cemetary and the flute girls which were universally prostitutes. Therefore, this CAST out of Jesus is quite identical to the CASTING OUT of Lucifer or Zoe from heaven. The message seems clear that the CAST DOWN noises and shaking and moving are the same DUNG concept. The exploding CHARISMATIC movement has only one meaning other than the power of God to speak without rituals: that is homosexuality real or pretend during the 'new style worship.'
The DUNG factor sounds much like the PLAGUES of Revelation which are 'weeping sores.' God in Christ refuses to permit the WORLD to participate in His kingdom power
But when the people were PUT FORTH, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. Matt 9:25
Put forth is:
Ekballo (g1544) Ekballoek-bal'-lo; from 1537 and 906; to eject (lit. or fig.): - bring forth, cast (forth, out), drive (out), expel, leave, pluck (pull, take, thrust) out, put forth (out), send away (forth, out).
The Minstrels or musical team were theatrical performers. Therefore, CLAPPING was to put them forth or out. They had no place in the healing presence of Jesus:
BALLO (g906) bal'-lo; a prim. verb; to throw (in various applications, more or less violent or intense): - arise, cast (out), dung, lay, lie, pour, put (up), send, strike, throw (down), thrust. Comp. 4496.
One use by the Greeks is:
Skubaliz˘ , look on as DUNG, reject CONTEMPTUOUSLY,
Skubalon (g4657) skoo'-bal-on; neut. of a presumed der. of 1519 and 2965 and 906; what is thrown to the dogs, i.e. refuse (ordure): - dung.
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, Ph.3:8
Skulon (g4661) skoo'-lon; neut. from 4660; something stripped (as a hide), i.e. booty: - spoil.
CLAPPING has much the same meaning: By APPLAUDING HIM you EXPLODE HIM off the stage. Is there any question why Jesus put His Kingdom in the human spirit. The "kingdom" clapping intends to force a sensual "kingdom" and boo Jesus off the holy places!
EXPLODO (EX-plaudo ), to DRIVE OUT or off by clapping; orig. a scenic word said of a player, to hiss or hoot off, EXPLODE HIM.
II. Transf. beyond the scenic sphere.
A. To drive out or away, to CAST OUT, to SCARE AWAY,
1. To drive from the stage by noisy expressions of disapprobation; to hoot off; to drive away or reject noisily; as, to explode a play.
Him old and young Exploded, and seized with violent hands. --Milton.
Explode...to drive out, drive out a player by clapping; ex out+plaudere, plodere, to clap, strike, applaud:
"PLATO, ALCIBIADES: until he gripped the butt-end of the shaft. From the crew of the transport there came LAUGHTER and CLAPPING at his posture, and when someone aimed a stone at him which hit the deck near his feet, and he let go the spear, the troops on the warship in their turn could no longer restrain their laughter, as they saw the notable scythe-spear dangling from the transport. Now, there may perhaps be something in this ART of theirs, as Nicias argues, but at any rate that is my impression of it, in the cases I have met with.
The shaking that remains is related to the quivering voice of the trumpets now shaking the church as the great battle for existence goes on. Did you know that the Vatican now has a PERMANENT observer at the UN to better control "her" interests? And we are fighting for SPACE which the restored "holy roman empire" which was mostly France are trying to destroy. Already the EU is deciding that Americans cannot BUY or SELL unless it has the STAMP of the EU. The EU's currency is the old MARK.
An earthquike is a COMMOTION or tempets being blown by the winds of change. It is related to SEIO meaning to rock and roll and tremble and throw into a tremor: woe to the shakers!!
Paul wrote that we are NOT COME TO THE SOUND OF A TRUMPET to the burning mountain where Israel rose up in PLAY which was a charismatic, musical worship of the Egyptian triad:
See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Heb 12:25
Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. Heb.12:26
My guess is by a solar flare larger than the last one.
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Heb 12:27
Salpiqc (g4536) sal'-pinx; perh. from 4535 (through the idea of quavering or reverberation): a trumpet: - trump (- et).
That INTERNAL kingdom cannot be shaken:
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear : Heb 12:28
Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
There are actually preachers and "praise teams" praying that the fires will fall!
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, Mt.24:38
There is actually a PRAISE TEAM named Halal. It means Kosher Meat in Arabic.
Halal (h1984) haw-lal'; a prim. root; to be clear (orig. of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence to make a show, to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causat. to celebrate; also to stultify: - (make) boast (self), celebrate, commend, (deal, make), fool (- ish, -ly), glory, give [light], be (make, feign self) mad (against), give in marriage, [sing, be worthy of] praise, rage, renowned, shine.
Heylel (g1966) hay-lale'; from 1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning-star: - lucifer.
A similar word is:
Chalal (h2490) khaw-lal'; a prim. root [comp. 2470]; prop. to bore, i. e. (by impl.) to wound, to dissolve; fig. to profane (a person, place or thing), to break (one's word), to begin (as if by an "opening wedge"); denom. (from 2485) to play (the flute): - begin (* men began), defile, * break, defile, * eat (as common things), * first, * gather the grape thereof, * take inheritance, pipe, player on instruments, pollute, (cast as) profane (self), prostitute, slay (slain), sorrow, stain, wound.
You remember that Lucifer was CAST OUT of heaven. He/she was the musical enchanter in the garden of Eden. As the king/queen of Tyre she/he was called the "singing and harp playing prostitute."
Eze 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. [cut down, dispatched]
Eze.28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast [Chalal (h2490)] thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
I truly wish that these people who form the ZOE GROUP could grasp that Zoe is Lucifer who claims superiority over the "little dumb jehovah." In order to appeas her, "jehovah" was no fool so he formed a "musical worship team" to worship, of course, Zoe called the "beast and the female instructing principle."
As every word of God POINTS to a deeper principle--Jesus said He spoke in parables from the foundation of the world--everything we see around us is happening at THE RIGHT TIME with all of the symbolic signs. Therefore, Paul said that if you want to meet Jesus you have to bear your own reproach and go to Him "outside the camp" or "outside the city." A city in this sense is a little kingdom or gathering of people. Isn't it wild that the BEAST in revelation is actually a little bisexual man goat. His "horns" are actually defined as musical instruments by which he gives his seven or so "little horns" the power to work lying wonders and build their own little mountain. So far the Christian Chronicle laments the fact that with the millions spent and the discord sowed only 5 out of 1300 congregations had added instruments in "alternative" services. Heard about another one just today: just one more to go!
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Eze 28:17
Wisdom is chokmah or Sophia the mother of ZOE. Sophia is the "serpent."
Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms (maggots) cover thee. Is.14:11
This is Tophet named after the tambourine and is hell itself-just outside Jerusalem identified as Egypt and Sodom.
And the Lord will again wait, that he may pity you, and will therefore be exalted that he may have mercy upon vou because the Lord your God is a judge blessed are they that stay themselves upon him. Isaiah 30:l8 LXX
For the holy people shall dwell in Sion and whereas Jerusalem has wept bitterly saying, Pity me; he shall pity thee when he perceived the voice of thy cry he hearkened to thee. Isaiah 30:19 LXX
And though the Lord shall give you the bread of affliction and sent water,
yet they that cause thee to err shall no more at all draw nigh to thee,
for thine eyes shall see those that cause thee to err Isaiah 30:20 LXX
and thine ears shall hear the words of them that went after thee to lead thee astray, who say, This is the way, let us walk in it, whether to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21 LXX
And thou shalt pollute the plated idols, and thou shalt grind to powder (like "melody" in Greek) the gilt ones,and shalt scatter them as the water of a removed woman, and thou shalt thrust them forth as dung. Isaiah 30:22 LXX
Must ye always rejoice, and go into my holy places continually, as they that keep a feast? and must ye go with a pipe, as those that rejoice into the mountain of the Lord, to the God of Israel Isaiah 30:29 LXX
and the Lord shall make his glorious voice to be heard and the wrath of his arm, to make a display with wrath and anger and devouring flame: he shall lighten terribly, and his wrath shall be as water and violent hail. Isaiah 30:30 LXX
For by the voice of the Lord the Assyrians shall be overcome, even by the stroke where with he shall smite them. Isaiah 30:31 LXX
And it shall happen to him from every side, that they from whom their hope of assistance was, in which he trusted, themselves shall war against him in turn with drums and with harp. Isaiah 30:32 LXX
For thou shalt be required before thy time: has it been prepared for thee also to reign? nay, God has prepared for thee a deep trench, wood piled fire and much wood: the wrath of the Lord shall be as a trench kindled with sulphur. Isaiah 30:33 LXX
Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:28
If you are in a VISIBLE kingdom you had better get out!
