Jesus the Christ deserves to be worshipped in Spirit and in Truth by His Kingdom of God on Earth citizens, and true believers’ worship means that they must express their reverence of, respect/admiration for, and devotion to Jesus the Christ with EVERYTHING that is in them, which is the whole essence of the Kingdom of God.
The “church” is the globally recognized spiritual body of loving, caring, born again, saved believers in Christ over whom Christ is the Head and the Lord, which gives Him the authority and the power to add new believers daily to His spiritual body of “called out” Christians who have assembled in the public and private places located throughout this entire world.
How many times have you heard people say that Christianity is a religion? How many times have you heard “other beliefs” debaters say that, since “Christianity is a religion” that is a mixture of many religious tenets and worldly philosophies, Christians, thus, need to make room for other beliefs?
It is a shame that mankind, as a whole, still doesn’t see color the same way that the Godhead sees it. Because of people’s prejudices that are rooted in wrong thinking, myths and fairy tales, an inestimable number of people who discriminate against others, whether because of skin color, or for some other insane reasons, will miss out on experiencing the real richness of God’s multicolored nature (His spiritual covering) that adorns and fills every one of His Spirit reborn and adopted sons and daughters.
Regrettably, because many of the spiritually armed Christians just do not know how to resolve their conflicts (differing opinions, and etcetera) in nonviolent and inoffensive ways, there are far too many soldiers in the Army of the Lord who have had their lives spiritually impaired or destroyed by “friendly fire.” Indeed, it is a matter of record that Christians often not only wound but also “bury” those they have wounded!
Will the current peace process in the Middle East yield lasting peace? The answer to this question is a resounding NO. Moreover, the everlasting true “peace” that Jesus the Christ will bring about only can happen through a bloody and violent conquest.
Unfortunately, because too many “churchy” people tend to think that regeneration (the rebirth) and salvation are the same, that water baptism is the second birth, that water baptism saves, or that people have something to do with their own rebirth, we have too many professed Christians in our modern-day churches who really have never been born again—people who never have received a regenerated spirit.
To guarantee that our human spirit is fertile ground from which will come much spiritual fruit, we need a sower who is concerned about sowing a “good seed.” We need Jesus the Christ as our Lord and personal Savior, and we need the Word of God. Once the sower sows that “good seed” (Word of God), then we, the hearers, will need to be receptive to, thankful for, faithful and obedient to, and cheerful, good stewards of the heard Divine Truth.
Instead of making the mistake of uprooting “wheat” that we incorrectly have misjudged as “tares,” those of us who are spiritually mature should use the time that God has given to us to strengthen those in love who might be spiritually weak. Lastly, we all need to use this time that God has give to us to praise and thank Him always for not being finished with any of us.
