Which Kingdom?

Image
Read in John 18 today where Pilate questions Jesus, asking if He is a King.

The answer? Yes.

But the Kingdom of Jesus Christ isn't here on earth, but rather His Kingdom is in heaven. It is the Kingdom of God.



33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?

35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth hearet…

Christ and Truth

Wanted to share a comment left on one of my blogs followed by my response.

Maybe you have thoughts on this too?

You can't use the words "Christ" & "truth" in the same sentence. He's a character from a thousand year old book that is continually revised & the stories about him were handed down through generations via word-of-mouth before ever being written down.

What you refer to as "truth" I call childhood indoctrination, which is why I opted to not give my children any religious label - when they're old enough to know their own minds, they'll make their own decisions based on RATIONAL THOUGHT.

"The belief that an all-seeing, all-knowing, all-loving parent watches over & protects us also ensures that we never truly grow up."

Thanks for your comment although I do no agree with you.

Is it a Wonderful Life?

Image
Tonight (well, it's after midnight, so last night) I watched again the classic 1946 movie, "It's a Wonderful Life" starring James Stewart and Donna Reed.

It's the story of a man who becomes so frustrated with life that he seriously considers suicide, only to be rescuded by Clarence, his guardian angel, who shows him what life would have been like if he had not been born. In the end, he repents and comes to really appreciate life, his family and his friends more than ever.

But the part that hit me hard for the first time was thinking about all the babies that never got a chance to live because they were aborted.

What would their life have been like?

What about the baby I aborted?

This is so painful to think about.

Through my selfishness, I made the wrong choice and will always regret it. Thinking about all the people who never got the chance to live because they were killed in the womb brings me to tears.

Recently, I began to volunteer again with a local crisis pregnancy…

Was the Norway Spiral Apart of Project Blue Beam?

Image
Briefly on Dec 9, 2009, in Norway, an unusual spiral light with a blue beam coming out of the center was sited in the evening sky. (source)

The media which of course is controlled is saying is was a Russian missle that exploded. The truth? To me it looks like another Project Blue Beam experiment.

And I'm sure we will see more strange events in our skies but we must not be deceived. Remember what the Lord Jesus Christ tells us in Matthew 24:

"Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."

Jesus is the Light of the World: Come to the Light

Image
If you follow the Lord Jesus Christ, you shall not walk in darkness. What a wonderful promise!



John 8
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.



John 12
35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?



39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; th…
