The Kingdom of God is within
A New year letter from the Shoe Ministries.
The great commission to all believers is to preach the Kingdom of God.
It has come to my attention that most people don’t know where the Kingdom of God is. “The Kingdom of God is within”. Jesus stood on earth and said he was in heaven.
Ephesians 2:4 says we are seated with Christ in heavenly places. In Hebrews 12:22 “We are citizens of heaven”. Just to name a few scriptural examples. How can this be? Some say heaven is to the north of the earth and others that we will someday live in heaven but we are in hell right now. So many traditions and religions that make the word of God of none effect.
“But the kingdom of God belongs to children” (Luke 18:16).
When God came to earth in Genesis 65, He saw that the imaginations and thoughts of men's hearts were continually evil.. For this same reason, He gave Noah the task of building the ark so that only he and his family would be saved as the flood commenced and wiped out the entire population of the earth. These three words describe that most important part of man where God should live, inside man. In the imaginations (1) and thoughts(2) of the heart(3). This shows that the physical heart is only a pump while the heart is where imaginations and thoughts abide that are of such importance to God.
