The Reign of Heaven on Earth

the kingdom of heavenThe reign of heaven is not what we think.

We should look deeply at this this term reign because Yahshua says he is giving us the reign of heaven and we shouldn’t be so quick to think money and wealth so quickly. If Yah says, “Do not worry,” and “I will supply your needs” this brings to light that someone is not living a glam filled life.

So listen, to have the reign of heaven on earth is what this means {Matthew 7].

To reign on earth one has to have thinking of predominance, or rather to hold the position and name of sovereign with out exercising the ruling power. In other words, to reign on earth we enjoy the privileges of a heavenly lifestyle until its time to take our place again as royal priests. That means, control over our thoughts, our lifestyles as chosen, beloved and graced of Yah. Does that make sense?

Look at this:

Mat 13:44 “Again, the reign of the heavens is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man having found it, hid, and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Mat 13:45 “Again, the reign of the heavens is like a man, a merchant, seeking fine pearls,
Mat 13:46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

So then we are finding truth of identity and giving up ungodliness for righteousness or right thinking to live set apart.

You have heard sold out, or you have heard do not cast your pearls to the swine, then this is it? The reign of heaven on earth.

Few there are who find it. The narrow gate.

Instructions Are There For a Guide

black men challengeInstructions are there for a guide. Why don’t people like to follow them?

Some of us believe that the people today or those of yesterday just did things in a impulsive compulsive manner and live life like everyone else. For example, in my drinking days I wanted to drink and have a lifestyle that I thought non drinkers had yet I never understood the concept that some of those people I was looking were missing something I did not, that is an addictive personality. Hence, they had boundaries and I did not. Nevertheless, I continued a destructive existence.

Now, programs like those which help those with alcohol and other substance issues [Rehabilitation] are great in that they introduce people to tools such a Alcohol Anonymous [AA] and Narcotics Anonymous [NA], but the trouble is that many of us with these problems don’t see the need to follow instructions. Moreover, we think rehab is bad when in reality if we are seeking to know truth we are being rehabilitated as Paul speaks in Romans about thinking soberly through the ‘Renewing’ of our minds. So rehab is not bad as some would have us think.

First off, people can’t see how a book is going to help them or people can’t see how 12 written steps is going to help them, and people cannot see how getting another person to guide them through those steps is going to help them. However, we cannot see that ‘accountability’ is the essence of following instruction which lead to a sober mind and eventually a sober life that led to some of the things we need like employment, homes, cars to keep, because we never get to keep things until we get a mind of becoming accountable.

So what about instructions can reconstruct and redirect our brains to think soberly….desire does that. It is the essence which leads to sobriety. Secondly, we see that one who is unwillingly to see truth of a hell bent life has not desire.

Then who can help? Unless one is ready to do anything to stay sober then nothing or no one can help. We can find other people to use to our means but no one is going to help unless we are ready to take that first step for good.

Admit it, you are powerless and only Yah can help you. The instructions are in the book. Take a look and see.

Good Deeds

proverbs 16_3We may never know the effect our living a righteous life before men has had. The help we gave someone, or that encouraging word, but we can be sure that what we do in private; that is, in secret has gotten God’s attention.
Look at this:
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” (Matthew 6:1-6)
I was thinking about this because its great to want praise reports from people we have kept lifted, also good to hear that prayers are answered; but what is it about when we see people inquiring and bragging about who they prayed for, what they did an when for Sis Lucy and Bro. Joe? Broadcasting that they bought them something to eat…certainly not because the family needed help but because of their need of recognition and attention. God says that we should keep it quiet when we share…giving in private. People doing stuff and spreading what they did over the neighborhood…so what if Sis. Lilly is wearing the suit you gave her last week; should everyone know it was you?
Today: Do it as unto the Most High and not unto men for Yah sees.
For your hearing:
Matthew 20
