  1. Subtle Twists (not The Dance)

    People like to hear a convenient gospel called the gospel of salvation. Yes. The Kingdom previously unavailable but available to us now, is our salvation. Jesus taught it and died to bring it, along with a return to God's governance about. He opened a door for us once denied since the Garden, until resurrection for all was made possible. Those who spout on about salvation alone could be considered as selfish because that is a me me me thing they are happy about, a crowd pleaser that draws...
  2. What We Do To Others

    The will/ways of man are contrary to the will/ways of the Father. The ways of man are self oriented while the ways of the Father address others. The governance of man runs contrary to the governance (kingdom) of the Father and cannot serve the Father when putting the affairs of man first. To serve the governance of man first is to serve the adversarial spirit of the one who still rules this adversarial world. Jesus was seen as a rebel for good reason, bringing a counter-culture to the...
  3. What? Who

    Often when a person is asked who they are, they will state a profession or affiliation rather than identify their true self. The majority of people take little time to recognize in others (and themselves) that which is of God rather than that which is of man. As a result over time, they begin to blur the line between the two. Never mind the entertainers or political figures, but even friends or family will get offended if we fail to recognize what they do, or that which they belong to, as...
  4. Perspective

    Trying to define the Gospel of the Kingdom by using the time honoured traditional thinking that had built and defends every institution that mankind has ever created, is like a rock explaining a bird's flight. It can only be done from the bird's perspective. Sooner and hopefully more than later, one can only hope that the Kingdom will be understood by thinking other than that which the world of man insists upon as it defends it's contrary ways, and that the blind will no longer lead the...
  5. Reversal Of Fortunes

    As all those things which have been the backdrop to a great portion of our lives now gradually disappear and the world becomes increasingly unfamiliar or uncomfortable and geared to a new generation, it could be seen as comparable to attending one's own funeral each time another piece of familiarity disappears. But on the bright side, most of these events were not of our own vision but borrowed moments in time. They are not who we are but who someone else was and we attached ourselves to...
  6. A Timely Reminder

    The good news of the Kingdom. A thankful alternative to the world man has created based upon his own ideals. Those who defend the ideals of man, especially prevalent in politics or personal gain, are deceived by man, and even though given the alternate ideals of the Kingdom by Jesus, they still hold onto mankind's ideals. That is willful. The same would apply to those who hang onto traditional church teachings/doctrine over scripture. The worldly Christians need to stop defending ideals of...
  7. Their Way Or The Highway

    All the whiners out there complaining about religion being pushed on them may have a point, at least about being pushed into something. But those having the nerve to say that the radical golden rule is just a cute but impractical code of conduct ... well, they need to get their old wiring replaced. The alternative to living by that golden rule exists, and it is the default setting for the world of man. The choice is on the individual to accept or deny it. The only control I have is not in...
  8. Man Haters

    The Roman historian Tacitus seems to admit there was a time pre-Constantine where the Jewish followers of Jesus had it right. The document declares that there were many unbelieving Jews living along with non-Pauline Jewish followers of Jesus in Rome only a dozen or so years after the Crucifixion. Both groups were supposedly expelled around 50 AD by Claudius over disputes between the two. But as you will see according to Tacitus, the animosity was not at the hands of the followers of Jesus....
  9. King Of The Hill

    Those in power, be it by way of religion or government of man, fear losing the support of the masses. Would people find that without contact, particularly with organized religion, that they can have a personal relationship with God and each other by elimination of the middleman? Hierarchy builds upon itself. Man is never content. A tribe will follow an alpha inhabitant. Tribes will amalgamate for greater protection under a new level of combined leadership. Those tribal constituencies...
  10. Battle Of Wills

    Just as Jesus commanded near the end of the biblical era, God at the beginning of it told Adam and Eve to put His will before their own in telling them to avoid the tree of knowledge. His will before ours, the law given in the beginning and repeated near the end. Putting His will first was not a power trip on His part, but rather a way to protect them simply because if they put their will first and ate of the tree, there would be consequences that He wished to protect them from. Protecting...
  11. Selective Memory

    People are happy to delude themselves into thinking what a wonderful world this is, knowing full well it is both good and evil. Even our memories prefer to dwell on the good and forget about how messed up life and we ourselves were/are. This world was built in man's image of self interest, often at the expense of others. The very reasons we were booted from the Garden. Self interest promotes evil, not good. Most people prefer to not look at the big picture, preferring instead what is...
  12. Overkill

    We once were sowers sowing seeds, and those seeds eventually sowed seeds. But some seeds fell by the wayside and took it upon themselves to do more than sow seeds but to also take God's job away from Him, and rather than just sow, also self determine how those seeds should grow in the sower's own image. In doing so the Kingdom was lost and the sower returned to the self-determining world of man. © ...timothyu
  13. Isolation

    It seems that people fail to realize what the god of this world which man has made has always been... self serving. When a leader familiar with Christian principles knows full well that an issue of government goes against Christian teachings, yet has been given no choice but to follow the ideals of man, one can see how impossible it is for mankind on a national scale, let alone global, to follow the will of God over the will of man. So having no control over anything but ourselves and...
  14. Fallible

    First, one must understand that the only sin there is involves putting our will ahead of the will of the Father, thus not loving all as self. Defining parts of sin are useless unless confronting the whole. All are the result of the same action. The Kingdom of servitude to others works contrary to the world man has made in our own image of self. There is no pick and choose, no gray area. We are capable of either way and often at the same time, the nature of man being dual. Once we...
  15. Key 2

    Although it was long ago when being fed up with the falsely advertised loyalties of His host people that God no longer dwelled in the Temple, it still remains that entrepreneurs within the various religious institutions would have us believe that we can be in contact with God through them. Along with that, we also have the Adversary who has us believe we are gods. Everybody has a gimmick. Yet of these two, the subtle Adversary is the closest to Jesus' truth in that, although we are not gods...
