Repent! The Kingdom of God is Within You

 

 

 

 

 

In this Corona Virus pandemic, I have been seeing a lot of online calls and challenges to repent.

Yes, repent!

Change the way you think until “righteousness, peace, and joy” are your reality; until the confidence of “on earth as it is in heaven” is your perspective; until you sense the arms of your kind and loving Father enveloping you and you grow sure in His nature to work all things to our good.

Repent!

Begin to think as He thinks, see as He sees, hear as He hears, give as He gives… live sure in His love today.

Repenting is not an act of desperation, it’s not about begging or groveling for some reprieve or stay of execution from a judgmental God who is angry with us. He is not angry. He is in a good mood! His love is still the answer, is still measureless and true. He is still the God who feeds 5000 plus people with 5 loaves and 2 fish. He is still a Relentless Redeemer!

So repent!

Step away from desperation and live in His reality of more than enough today!

Repenting is not about feeling ashamed or condemned. Repenting is the agreement with what Jesus did at the cross. It is the agreement with His value for us. It is our conscience awakening to our true identity, it’s our agreement with our restored nature!

Repent!

Live confident in your proclivity to be generous, and kind, and full of life, and hope; then love people with boldness today!

Repenting isn’t an act of fear by a guilty person. It is agreement with Love by a redeemed person. And it casts out fear.

So repent!

Live redeemed and fearless today! And love, love, love!

Repenting isn’t a heavy burden, a 24-hour wailing session focused on our brokenness, and poverty, and need, and sin. Repenting is a 2 min, 4 min, 24 min, 24 hours, 240 days and on and on revelation and agreement of our Father’s perspective in which we lay our burdens down, we exchange brokenness for righteousness, poverty for hope, peace, and joy; and sin for wholeness.

Repenting is the gift Jesus gave us to live confident as sons and daughters in His love on earth as it is in heaven.

So yes, repent! Grow sure in His affection and live confident in His love today!

    Well spoken. Recently I discovered that fuge is a word meaning to put to flight. Refuge finding recourse in our trials. A safe place with our Father. So simple. Run to Him. Not away. He is always desiring us.

      Yes! When you understand that goodness and love will follow you all the days of your life then when you’re in the shadow of the valley you sit and eat! (see Psalm 23) He is ALWAYS desiring us!!

      Thanks for sharing.

DUBB ALEXANDER / The Kingdom

“The Kingdom is the heart and the authority of God, from heaven, on earth, through us.” Rethinking Kingdom in the context of union, understanding the nature of the King, the penal substitutionary atonement heresy, a restorative understanding of the prophetic, how to receive or judge a prophetic word, holding on to what is good, dominion as opposed to domination, in this conversation Dubb Alexander gives insight into Jesus words, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand…God’s kingdom is within.

Well Done, Tire

We are designed to live a life of risk and trust, to do valiant acts of faith, to live out our radical acts of surrender, to leave it “all out on the field,” all for the glory of our King, so that when we get to heaven we will experience in those 3 beautiful seconds, those 6 stunning words. We are all living for the, “Well done.”

SURE IN LOVE

Our Heavenly Father is always good and doesn’t desire desperate kids. Any relationship where kids are desperate for their Father is dysfunctional. Jesus revealed what it looks like to live sure as a loved son of our Father and gave us access to this same sureness.

The Nature of Soap

Next to the toilet was a large barrel filled with clean-ish water. Floating in the water was a big plastic cup. The cup was for both flushing and bathing. Oh, I forgot to note, the toilet room was also the shower.

Free To Give / Peter, You, Me, & Even Ananias

After Ananias and Sapphira were greeted in heaven by Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, after being immersed in an atmosphere of grace and love, after their punishing religious obsession with good and evil was exposed, and self-righteous striving had ceased, in the freedom of consent, as they celebrated union, and as the band took a quick five, Jesus leaned over and with a heavenly grin, said, “Sorry about Pete. I told him to ‘feed my sheep,’ and he’s doing a brilliant job of it—most days. But occasionally, he still stumbles over the punishing lie of separation and forgets reconciling love. And when that happens,” Jesus chuckled as He opened His arms, recognizing their participation in the sweet by and by, “well, you know.”

Then Jesus gave a good-natured wink, “At least he didn’t use a sword this time.”

BRIAN ZAHND / WHEN EVERYTHING’S ON FIRE

“I felt like the Jesus I knew deserved a better Christianity than the Christianity I knew.” In this podcast, Zahnd shares about the Christian faith in alignment with Jesus and the journey he’s taken in discovering this good news! De- and reconstruction, a non-violent, non-retributive God who is reconciling the world to Himself, hermeneutics, hell, and the wonder of church deep and wide, in this conversation, the guys discuss a much richer, wider faith. The guys dive into Brian’s book, “When Everything’s on Fire,” a conversation that invites us to move beyond the crisis of faith toward the journey of reconstruction.
