John7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly (inner parts of his mind) shall flow rivers of living water.
Many people believe in Jesus but not according to the Scriptures. People have many opinion of Jesus, but they don’t know who he is or what he was really teaching. People go to church to hear Jesus was God, when the bible don’t teach that.
Matt 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, “the Son of the living God.”
Matt 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Notice the Son of the living God, not God, but his Son, notice it was Spiritually give. This what wrong with the religious world today, their trying to explain the bible without the Holy Ghost, and being born again.
Eccl 7:23 All this have I proved by wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me.
Eccl 7:24 That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out?
1 Cor. 2:10 “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:” for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
1 Cor 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even “so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”
Without the Holy Ghost man ability of understanding the bible is limited. But if you have the Holy Ghost you will have a deep understand of the bible, and have the authority to be witness for Christ.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power (authority), “after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses” unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
How is a person a witness of God and they never receive the Holy Ghost, who give them the authority or ability to make the word of God plain?
John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost:”
John 20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God;” and that believing ye might have “life through his name.”
Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; “Jesus of Nazareth, a man” approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
But preachers, ministers, and people they want to instruct you and they’re not part of the kingdom of God, they have never born again. Therefore, they lack ability to rightful divide the of truth. Jesus is the Son of God that’s who he is. The trinity is not a bible teaching Jesus is not God nor has he ever claim to be, he is the Son of God plain and simple, the resurrected King of the world to come.
Acts 19:1 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
Acts 19:2 He said unto them, “Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.”
They don’t even know it is a requirement, people be going to church or involved in some type of religious organizing, talking about they have a relationship with God or their saved without any kind of confirmation of their salvation.
Today we hear all kind of teaching when it comes to Christ but what did he really teach? Let’s look at his very first message after being tempted or evilly persuade by the Devil.
Matt 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
This is Scriptural repentance:
ISA 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Jesus first message was repent for the kingdom of heaven was soon to come.
John 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, “Except a man be born again,” he cannot see (understand) “the kingdom of God.”
John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the “kingdom of God.”
So, if you haven’t been baptized in Jesus name and filled with the Holy Ghost Acts 2:38 water and Spirit, you can’t even enter the kingdom of God. But a lot of people are underwear of these Scriptures and the Holy Ghost, their confirmation that they are part of kingdom God. Because average preacher as well person don’t know Christ true message. Jesus message is the kingdom of God being establish and renewing of your mind. It is not religion, religion is no more than the teaching of men.
Matt 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth (talking Jesus that all), and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart (mind) is far from me.
Matt 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
This is religion the teaching and the commandment of men.
2 Cor. 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 Cor. 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation (revealing) of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
2 Cor. 4:3 But if our gospel be hid (be closed to their understanding), it is hid to them that are lost (they’re not part of God’s kingdom, they’re not going to be saved):
2 Cor. 4:4 In whom the god (Satan) of this world hath blinded the minds (closed their mind to truth) of them which believe not (they don’t believe the word of God anyway), lest the light (knowledge) of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine (be revealed) unto them.
2 Cor. 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
2 Cor. 4:6 For God, who commanded the light (knowledge of God) to shine (be reveal) out of darkness, hath shined (revealed) in our hearts (minds), to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Thess. 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness (deceive in their own unrighteousness) in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2 Thess. 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie (false teaching):
A delusion is when you show a person proof of the truth and that person stick to a religion lies as if were true.
2 Thess. 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
The kingdom of God has two parts to it the first part is the Spiritual rebirth:
Luke 17:20 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:”
Acts 2:2 And “suddenly” there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, “the kingdom of God is within you.”
Acts 2:4 And “they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,” and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance (ability).
Acts 2:5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
Acts 2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
Not a babbling tongues but an understandable language.
Acts 2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
Acts 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
Times and seasons so there are two parts to the kingdom of God the first part is Spiritual. That happen on the day of Pentecost when first part of the kingdom of God gave birth. Now we are waiting for the second part that will be physical with the return of Christ from heaven.
The teaching of the kingdom of God is not the same thing as religion, religion is the teaching of tradition and commandment of men. The teaching of kingdom of God is the renovated mind.
Eph.1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may “give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:”
Eph.1:18 The eyes of your understanding (Spiritual understanding) being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
Eph.1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
It reasonable service reject these things:
Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law (elements of the carnal nature).
Gal 5:19 Now the works (actions) of the flesh are manifest (reveal), which are these; Adultery (marry but you have someone on the side), fornication (not marry but out having sex), uncleanness (lustful mind, filthy mind), lasciviousness (lewd, sex out of control, sleep with everybody, life give to pleasure),
Gal 5:20 Idolatry (extreme admiration of material possession), witchcraft, hatred (extreme dislike that may even led to murder) , variance (divergent, or inconsistent), emulations (acting like woman and you’re a man or vice or versa), wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things “shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind (change your thinking), that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Matt 15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man (the condition of his mind, how he think).
Matt 15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart (your mind set); and they defile the man.
Matt 15:19 For out of the heart (from out of the condition of your) proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
Matt 15:20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
Those that are part of kingdom of God is working on the condition of their mind, their thinking. Because once you change how you see things it will change you actions and precepts, as religious people have a set of rules they try to stick to, but never deal with the condition of their mind and their thinking. Another way to look at religion and know it is a counterfeit, is Christ came to establish his kingdom that would be one government system, so if a person is a Baptist that would be another government system, if a person is Catholic that would be another government system. That is what religion would represent. Christ came to establish his kingdom so there just one government system and it will be governed by our resurrected King Jesus.
