"The kingdom of God comes not with observation:
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there!
the kingdom of God
is within you"
- Luke 17:20-21
This profound revelation is the turning point
to every question and conversation that you have.
"Behold, the Kingdom of Heaven is within you"
That scripture is the bedrock of 'why' Jesus came back and walked this earth as a blood and flesh man:
To bring paradise back into you.
Not, you going to heaven...but heaven coming back inside your physical temple.
"We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." - 2nd Corinthians 4:7
Because the truth is, that "We the people" are inverted
You might say, "Aren't we made in the image of God?"
The answer is: Yes we are.
Look in your mirror... no matter what you do to your image... it is opposite of you.
You can dress it up... You can strip it down... You can stand on your head.
But the results, no matter how hard you try... Physically... Emotionally... Financially... Religiously... Surgically or Cosmetically, Your image is inverted... left is right... right is left... right is wrong.
'Lived'... inverted is the 'devil'... 'live' is 'evil'... you get the drift.
The Father's will for you, is to change the impossible:
Physical... Spiritual... Scientific... 'Cosmic'... impossible boundaries of the impossible
fallen nature of mankind...
To replace the 'Tree of the knowledge of good and evil'
***Tree of life***
What do you have to "do",
to do that?
You have to move the one obstacle... the one and only person who is in the way.
That person is the only one that can resist this incarnation of:
'God in the flesh'
"It's the devil"
"The devil has always been my problem"... you might religiously proclaim.
"Because I'm in church every Sunday... and Weds... twice on Tuesdays.
I'm the chair of my local church board... and pay my tithes... 'religiously'
I support every good cause... and even speak in tongues every now and again.
My friends are all religious.
I have all the bases covered... and yet... STILL... I'm lonely... afflicted... my promise is Yea and Amen..."
"I'm empty and unfulfilled inside."
Are you ready to change?
Or you have gone the other route...
I'm loving life!
None of that churchy religious stuff for me... don't get nothing out it any ways.
I eat what I want... sleep with whatever or whoever I want... make good money.
You religious people are always telling me what I can't do.
Plus what's even worse... is nowadays... church is become an advocate for social issues.
They have become more corrupt... and a bunch of hypocrites, using the scriptures
to justify acceptance... and tolerance.
which are just code words to live immorally;
And use religion to be two fold more the child's of hell;
Then pray 5 times a day or kick up the band and choir...'To praise God?'???"
Are you tired of the hypocrisy... idolatry... two-faced... watered-down... greedy... 'self-righteous'... blind?
Where's the real Jesus Christ?
I'm sick of sinning... 'against my will'
Then you are a candidate... For a Miracle!
If you are ready to move the one person in the way.
The one man/woman who has driven that rig into the ditch...
over and over and over.
Are you ready to change?
Because I can tell you that Jesus Christ is not your bell-hop or maid.
"The seven levels of highly effective people"
is not your bible.
Going to church 7 days a week will never justify your way into Heaven.
Nor does sitting on a bar stool, drowning your sorrows
from the hurt and pain of life.
"All have sinned, and fell short of the glory of God"
Rather Jesus came back as a man, and paid the ransom note...
through His blood... for your soul,
to be translated out of the curse...
and rebellion... in the devil... in man... in you?
He prayed back into you and I, in Gethsemane,
3 prayers of agonizing eternity.
"O Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me;
nevertheless not as I will, but as thou will"
"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand"
"Watch and pray, that you enter not into temptation:
the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
John the baptist said; "He must increase, but I must decrease"
"O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me,
except I drink it, thy will be done".
- Matthew 26:42
This is why it is absolutely essential that Y.O.U repent of what and who you are.
The natural man in all his misery or success is in rebellion to God.
The natural man will never inherit or see Heaven.
'He' is opposite of Heaven.
A supernatural phenomenon happened on this planet
2000 years ago when Jesus walked this earth for 33 years.
His 3 1/2 year ministry manifested the Father.
"Whom no man has seen, nor can see"
That God... the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel:
who made that tiny nation the most feared... hated... and anointed people,
because nobody could touch them when Jehovah was with them.
Until the glory... the Shekiah glory, departed from them.
And I-cha-bod... was 'written on the wall'
"The glory is departed from Is'ra-el: because the ark of God was taken,
and because of her father in law and her husband.
And she said; The glory is departed from Is'ra-el;
for the ark of God is taken."
- 1st Samuel 4:21-22
But don't worry... You are the tip of the arrow...
to illuminate the 144,000 sons of God.
Back to the original inheritors of God's presence...
The Jewish nation... Is'ra-el.
12,000 from each tribe.
Through the King of the Jews.
whom they crucified.
Because without that perfect plan...
Jesus allowed them to crucify Him at the place of the skulls:
Golgotha... on the cross on Calvary.
Where Jesus said: "It is finished"
and gave 'up the ghost'... the temple veil was rent in twain by angels.
As Jesus went into the heart of the earth and dealt with the devil,
no longer confined to the flesh and blood curse that Adam sold us into.
Now Christ became or went back to being in the omni-present King and Conqueror of eternal life.
Rose from the dead on the 3rd day... and brought the kings, prophets, and saints of Israel with Him.
Holy scriptures say, "Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from top to bottom; and the earth did quake and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many." - Matthew 27:50-53
When He reappeared to His disciples,
This is what he said: "All hail"
"All power is given unto me in heaven and IN earth"
- Matthew 28:8,18
This is the Creator of Heaven and your earth.
Who is now a glorified spirit... All powerful... all knowing... the Alpha and Omega
He wants to posses your life... not your current one.
Not what and who you are... but who and what he is.
One with the Father.
This is what Jesus said; "Father, the hour is come, glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify you. As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should know eternal life to as many as you have given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know you...the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have glorified you on the earth; I have finished the work which you gave me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was." - John ch.17:1-5
The power of the dual baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire.
In other words, your new creature which is in Christ;
You become one with the Father and the Son.
The first 'quickened' Spirit from the dead.
But you have to move out your old life,
for God's life... "From Within"
When God is restored back into your life... you change... dramatically.
God is glory!
Jesus is the light of life... your seven levels of existence of life... not self-enlightenment,
but the presence of not only the 'Lamp of Life... Jesus... but the 'Smoking Furnace' of the Father Himself in you.
That's what this life is meant to be... having Divine Love put back into you.
Then when Jesus is moving in and through His Holy Ghost in you,
His divine presence... extends out of your senses... and He performs
impossible feats... that only God does.
Have you been used?
Chronically bound by satan?
Racked and tormented from so much affliction and pain?
Threaten by 'silence'... because if you come clean and tell the truth... 'they' will kill you and your family?
By the time Jesus choose me to have a chance to translate and come out of rebellion, evil and craziness...my ticket was punched.
I was making millions of dollars... and totally broke... and bankrupt... I was physically a powerhouse, and traveled the world signing thousands of autographs, and being pictured with 'stars' and the worlds most 'beautiful' people... but would go home to a broken recliner and a mattress on the floor... constantly healing from injuries I suffered from lifting and underworld drugs. I did security and body-guarded some of the biggest names in Hollywood... was responsible for security of their person and possessions... yet I had multiple death threats... from 'the old days'... being my best.
Without tragedy... heartbreak... sin upon sin... unspeakable pressure and chaos... and stupid upon stupid.
So, at 33 years old... I was 'bottoming out'... while being the best I what I did... suddenly:
I knew what I was doing was not working anymore... the 'latch was off the lid'.
I needed desperately to have a change from within.
I didn't need to go to another watered-down church service.
I didn't need to read another 'Be your best' book...
I had taught that since I was 15 years old.
I didn't need another bodybuilding trophy, or to bench 700Ibs.
Didn't need a better diet.
Didn't need a 'good woman' to love me.
Didn't need a loan until things got better.
What I needed was to change... and die to my life.
What I needed to do is repent of what I was!
What I needed to do is obey God!
What I needed to do... was being spiritually recreated... by God Himself!
Do you know any place that can do that?
Neither did I.
Except one... inside a man of God.
Who God... the guy who the Bible is written about... step out of a man... And I saw Jesus Christ... Yes... the same one,
Who died for our sins on Calvary...(refer to all the above)... that man!... and I hollered; "This just is"... walked out the closet door O:-) and never looked back.
Jesus allowed me to make a choice... go to jail... hurt someone... or be killed and go to hell...
Or be saved... and live in His holy, pure peaceably, all-powerful presence.
"forsake the foolish and live..forever"
By design... all the good and all the ugly... and all the trials... all of it... is meant to overcome from within and have God manifest out of you.
Then by design... His divine love will be put in everything you are and do... friendships... marriage... business... because HE, not thee, is manifested in your mortal body.
"That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word. That he might present it to himself; a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing. But that it should be holy and without blemish" - Ephesians 5:26-27
Now that is just the first chapter of Christ's endless beauty and life,
in my life.
I hope this inspires you to change... and to be glorified 'From Within'
The answer to your prayers
are waiting from within you.
"Posterity! You never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you make good use of it. If you don't, I shall repent from heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it." - John Adams; 2nd President of the United States
