Of course I’m not talking about the Bible’s description of “Pure Religion” where love is demonstrated to disadvantaged and helpless.
God’s Kingdom in the “afterlife” doesn’t have stop signs and it doesn’t function with stop signs its earthly expression.
God’s Kingdom in the earth is also not about doing works for the purpose of proving worth.
But Here Is What I’m Saying
The “stop signs” or “thou shalt nots” had one purpose. To show anyone who attempted to stop, that they couldn’t. Paul says it in Romans 7.
(Take a look at Romans 7 if you don’t believe me.)
The reason that those under the law could make contact with God at all was because of the sacrificial system. Not because they could keep the laws.
God’s Kingdom Has Literally Come
Yes, there is a place we know as the Kingdom of Heaven that will be the destination for Followers of Christ once they physically die. However, God’s Kingdom has also already come by Jesus’ own testimony about Himself. And, the potential of it coming/manifesting is in our purpose while in the earth.
For those who keep asking about their purpose, it’s about your unique qualities of being “portals” for the manifestation of God’s Kingdom in the earth since Jesus is no longer physically in the earth, but His ambassadors are.
I don’t want to get off track, but this is about the whole “portals” thing. There are people who believe there are places where both heaven and hell have portals of “easier” access to their realms.
I BELIEVE THAT THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT EACH SON AND DAUGHTER OF GOD IS THEIR OWN “PORTAL.”
Where ever you or I go, as His kids, is where there’s a “portal” of access. It’s whether you believe it or not. That’s the only open or closed door. The legal transaction has already been made.
Back To The Topic
If there is not need for “stop signs” in heaven, there is no need for them in God’s Kingdom in the earth. So….stop looking for and focusing on them.
The perfect law of liberty and love is the managing force of God’s Kingdom. Seek that above all else. Focus on enjoying and giving the love and life that is already yours. There’s no feeling like it. There’s no power like it.
