“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. … 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” [John 3:3&5]
1. The Kingdom of God is real.
It is not a mountain in Jerusalem, Israel or America. The Kingdom of God is the dominion of Jesus Christ on earth. The Kingdom of God is the birthright of those who are born not of flesh and blood but of the Spirit of God. The Kingdom of God is the presence and authority of God, domiciled in you” [Luke 17:20-21] This is a mystery, that a kingdom dwells inside a man! Those who cannot unlock the mystery of the Kingdom are trapped in mirror of blindness. They have eyes but cannot see the reality of the everlasting power and glory of the Kingdom of God. Because they cannot see it, they cannot have it.
2. The Kingdom of God is for you.
The Bible says: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” [Romans 14:17] No man should be deceived, the Kingdom of God is not a rat race to acquire material riches. The Kingdom of God is about reconciliation with God and putting away sin to: “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” [Hebrews 12:14] The Kingdom of God is God dwelling in you to restore your soul and lead you to still waters of peace [Psalms 23: 1-6] The Kingdom may not turn you into the richest man on earth but you are guaranteed unending peace and joy of the Lord [Psalms 16:11] It t is written: “The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing” [Psalms 34:10] No man turns to God and goes away empty handed. God is the; “…rewarder of them that diligently seek him” [Hebrews 11:6]
3. The mirror of blindness is a snare.
This generation is bedeviled by religious leaders trapped in strong delusions of piety and faith. What do you say of preachers who have eyes, blinded by the god of this world, as it is written: “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” [2 Corinthians 4:4] I plead with you, do not look for the Kingdom of God through the eyes of any man. Satan has men on pulpits to raise men after his heart. Remember, the Kingdom of God is Christ in you and the proof is the life of Christ that you live, not your bank statement. The Bible says: “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;… Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself” [1 Timothy 6: 3-5]
4. See the Kingdom.
The Bible says: “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” [John 8:12] Without light no man can see. Jesus Christ is the Light that reveals the Kingdom of God. To receive the Light, you must be born again. You must be born of the Spirit of God by confessing and repenting of your sins. Your sins are forgiven when you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. As a baby in the Kingdom of God, you now have eyes equipped to see and guide you into the Kingdom of God. No man can describe what the Kingdom of God looks like to you; they are for your eyes only. The Bible says: “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God” [1 Corinthians 2:9-10]
5. Enter the Kingdom.
It is written: “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power” [1Crinthianso 4:20] It does not matter how many years a man has been in church, he has not entered the Kingdom until he begins to exercise the powers of the Kingdom of God. Entering the Kingdom is a process not an event. The Bible says: “Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” [1 Peter 2:1-2] As you grow, challenges and trials are the necessary ladders to discern good and evil and climb to greater glory, as it is written: “For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” [Hebrews 5:13-14] The Kingdom is yours, receive the Light, see and enter..
