From the last Email it must sound like very hard work to live this Kingdom of God  life.

However the rewards are high. We are not only promised everlasting life but peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Rom 14:17:  “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”

The promise of peace and joy in this life is not a small matter. The people of this world go to extreme lengths to have peace and joy. Most think they will be happy if they have material things.

God caused the flood because of this heart that is wicket, ignorant and evil and chaotic. This is described as being the kingdom of darkness, deep and dark. Some people choose to give their kingdom of the mind to the beasts of Revelation 17:17. If the Holy Spirit chooses, He moves upon the face of our deep and calls light into being. This is when we give our hearts to God. Gradually we grow into being the Kingdom of God. Revelation 12:10 and the old kingdom which is called Babylon (Rev 17:5) begins to fall. Slowly the Holy Spirit finds more and more room in our hearts until the imaginations and thoughts of the heart becomes the dwelling of the Holy Spirit.
