Jesus came to reveal the way of God the Father and His Kingdom on earth to fallen mankind. There are many ways to be morally good, successful and famous in life, but there is only one way back to the Father and His Kingdom on earth and that is through Jesus Christ His Son.
Matthew 11:25, 27 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes.
All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
1 Corinthians 8:5-6 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live. NKJ
There are many ways to live this life and the Bible says, there is a way that seems right to a man, but it only ends in death. We have been taught many different ways to live in this world’s system where societies are built on this wisdom of fallen mankind. When this was all we knew, it sounded and appearedto be right to us, but Christ came and showed us the true way of life in the knowledge of God the Father through His Son Jesus.
here is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death.
John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. NKJ
There are so many things being taught as to how to live a prosperous and meaningful life and all them promising to be a better way of living in this life and some in the next life to come. Living in various cultures, lifestyles and societies it is hard to decipher which way is truly right. Some of these ways are good and can assist in living a seemingly balanced and amicable life but will not be able to stand in the light of God’s truth and eternal salvation.
Jesus speaks of the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven upon the earth, which is the spiritual realm where God reigns as King to fulfill God’s will on earth. God’s way is revealed to us by His Son who is the express image of God and has spoken to us the word of God. The spiritual kingdom of God was within mankind when he was created, the Holy Spirit, but the Spirit left and man as He was created died the day mankind rebelled against their God and King. Then a corrupted, lying deceiver was given rule over the kingdom which God had created for mankind. It was man himself who chose to be led by Satan and relinquished his God ruled kingdom.
Hebrews 1:1-3 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
Jesus gave a parable, that the kingdom of God was like a man who sowed good seed in his field but while he slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat. Many people have asked why did God create evil people and why does He allow these vile things to happen. God created mankind good and the enemy came and perverted good into evil, because they handed over their authority to Satan by believing his lie. God will never force or trick a person into choosing Him, but He sent Christ to show us the way that we may be redeemed, but the choice is always ours to make.
Matthew 13:24-30 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” NKJ
Satan ruled as the prince of this world, until in the fullness of time Jesus came as a man to redeem humanity, to bring God’s kingdom on earth and the way back to the Father. The kingdom of God is spiritual and it cannot be observed or seen with the natural eye where people can go and see it, but it is a placed and where we are to live according to God’s principles in our hearts. The Holy Spirit is given to live in the heart of those who believe Jesus is the Son of God and receive Him as their Lordand their Savior.
Mark 1:14-15 Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
Luke 17:20-21 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.” NKJ
The way to God the Father and the Kingdom of God has come. God has made known His way of life through His Son that we may live a life of joy in His presence. We each must choose to repent; to change the way we think and renew our minds to God’s kingdom ways.
Act 2:28, 38-39 You have made known to me the ways of life;
You will make me full of joy in Your presence.’
Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” NKJ
