Kingdom versus Religion


“Jesus walked throughout the region with the joyful message of God’s kingdom realm. He taught in their meeting houses, and wherever he went he demonstrated God’s power by healing every kind of disease and illness,”   Matthew 9:35 TPT.

My child, I came to reveal the mystery of the Kingdom of Light to a people who were bound in darkness.

I have never withdrawn My Light.  It has been available to all who believe on Me.

My Kingdom has structure but My yoke is easy.  It is not like the heavy chains that religion and its traditions put on people.

Religion has you focused on works and condemnation if your works do not meet the approval of the religious hierarchy.

But in My Kingdom, I do the heavy lifting — I paid your debt of sin.

What do I require from you?

I require you to express your love for Me by following My commands.

You must read the words in “red” and live by them.  You are to make them your standard by which all things you do, think, or say are measured.

I ask you to surrender your life into My hands.  I did buy you at the ultimate price.

When you surrender your life into My hands, I will treat you as if you are My only child.

I AM not the taskmaster.  The more surrendered you are to Me the easier it is to follow My commands.

Will troubles arise?  Yes, they come because the dark one is not yet bound in the pit.

But I AM with you and will deliver you from the attacks of the evil one.  As we walk through the wilderness together, you are changed as your faith seed grows into a mighty tree of righteousness.

The dark ones do not understand how the bonds of our love flourish in the hard places.

He seeks to destroy.  I come to fan the flame of the life-spark of Resurrection Life I placed in you.

I come to mold your vessel into My image.  I come to breathe life into you and through you to others.

I come to make you a unique expression of My love so you can love the Father as I do.

I come to reveal My Kingdom through you.

Rise up and enter My rest.  Stay moldable in My hands.

Receive My blessings.  Come, the adventures are just beginning.  All is well.  Shalom.

“And yet, O Lord, you are our Father.  We are the clay, and you are the potter.  We all are formed by your hand.  Don’t be so angry with us, Lord.  Please don’t remember our sins forever. Look at us, we pray, and see that we are all your people,”   Isaiah 64:8-9 NLT.
