Daily Devotional, Year 3 – February 15

The False Prophet, Part 12: “Is The Kingdom of God Within You?”

To read Part 1 of this series, click here… “JANUARY 26 (The False Prophet, Part 1: Lying Eyes!)”

.

.

.

.

“And when He (Jesus) 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:

Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there!

for, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.”

Luke 17:20, 21

.

.

.

.

.

.

There is a movement afoot to limit the above passage from Luke, which states…for, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:21

.

.

In other words, there are currently theologians who now attempt to say that Jesus was not saying that the Kingdom of God is within the heart of a Believer.

.

And instead, they say that Jesus was telling those Pharisees that, “the Kingdom of God is in your midst”, since Jesus was standing right there in their midst.

THEOLOGIANS PARTLY CORRECT

.

And it’s true, Jesus was standing there in their midst!

.

And Jesus is, in essence, the Kingdom of God.

.

And so, these modern-day theologians are partly correct!

.

Jesus indeed is the Kingdom of God, and He was indeed, standing right there in their midst!

GOD’S KINGDOM WITHIN OUR HEART

.

But does this truth somehow nullify the fact that the Kingdom of God is within a Christian’s heart?

.

Not at all! As a matter of fact, it only confirms that the Kingdom of God is within the heart and soul of the Christian!

.

Listen to the following declaration by Paul…“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:” Galatians 2:20

.

Paul here reveals that Christ is living out His life through Paul.

THE JOHN 17 PRAYER

.

Listen to the next passage from John…“I (Christ) in them (Believers), and Thou (the Father) in Me (Christ), that they may be made perfect in one; and that the wohttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianity-Jesus_Christ_Died_for_your_Sin.jpgrld may know that Thou hast sent Me, and hast loved them, as Thou hast loved Me.” John 17:23

.

OK, so it says here that not only is Christ in the Believer, but that the Father is in Christ!

.

And so, both the Father and the Son indwells every genuine Believer!

.

Incredible?

.

Oh yes, and amazing too!

WHY THE DENIAL?

.

So why are some theologians just now beginning to deny that the Kingdom of God exists within the hearts of Believers?

.

Perhaps this next verse explains this denial…“For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.” Matthew 25:29

.

Here it reveals the grim reality that those who are within the apostate church-world are even losing the truths which they have held in the past.

END-TIME EXODUS

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgSo just what can be done about this frightful situation in today’s church-world?

.

God is now calling His people to begin to make an end-time exodus out of the apostate churches and denominations which are abandoning the great truths they once cherished.

.

And today’s devotional is highlighting just one more reason to, “Come out of her, My people, lest ye be partakes of her sins, and receive of her plagues!”

.

And so, O Stranger & Pilgrim of the Cross, we must begin to make that departure away from the Babylonish confusion which now pervades today’s church-world.

.

But the Good News is, that our heavenly bread and our living waters will be abundantly provided on those high hills and mountains in the very day when the towers are fallen, even as it is written…“And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.” Isaiah 30:25

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, Take me away from the Babylonish confusion which is the current condition of the church-world, and let me engage in personal study that I may know what the Word of Truth actually says…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP

.

“Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…

.

for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.”

.

Valley of Decision w/names

.

“The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining… 

.

“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem…

.

“And the heavens and the earth shall shake…

.

“But the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

.

Joel 3:14-16

.

.

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2

.

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

 

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, these Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
