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 scripture is saying that all things pertaining to everything that happens in our lives is subject to the state of the heart.  The heart is the conscience; it is where the Spirit of God resides right inside our spirit.  The heart is where we pray and see in the imaginations and thoughts of the heart. In Genesis 6:5 – God saw that the imaginations and thoughts of the hearts of all the people on earth were continually evil. For this reason this evil generation was destroyed by the flood. In the New Testament this is a type of spiritual death.

Many of us are struggling to hear God’s voice and receive revelation from God because we do not make the state of the heart our first priority. Some people are tired of waiting on God to answer prayers but do not realize that hearing God only happens if the heart belongs to God. If we take part in daily sanctification of the heart we can confidently be everything the Bible says we are. The Bible says we are sons of God, but is it really possible to be sons of God if the heart is full of worry for instance?
