The Kingdom of Heaven
There is a disconnect from the Kingdom of Heaven to earth. God has called this ministry to reestablish this connection. In your mind’s eye, think of a ladder descending from Heaven to earth. All you have to do to receive answers for your life is to climb this ladder rung by rung. On this climb, you discover there are rungs missing and you can only get so far. You have to climb this ladder in order to achieve the desires of your heart from the Kingdom of Heaven, but you need someone to come and reconnect those rungs…. Jesuswithoutthejunk is trying to accomplish this for you.
When I first started my Crosswalk, I would be awakened at 2 or 3 in the morning and go sit before God. I didn’t know if He was listening to me but I behaved as though He was. I would go dump everything that was on my heart on Him. Afterward, I would feel relieved. Then somehow the time I spent with Him was redeemed for me. I would crawl right back in bed for a couple of hours (maybe) and then get up and start my day as if getting a full night’s rest. (Believe me, sleep to me at that time was the most important thing in my life, so for me to sacrifice this time was a big deal.) I would leave His presence feeling momentarily better like I did when I would go to the Psychiatrist once a week for years. I recall coming home from those meetings and things would seem fine for a little span of time, but then they would go right back to the way they really were….deep, dark and depressing. I was not being given the proper learning tools in which to conquer whatever (and it was a lot) was keeping me bound in my own hell. I spent enormous amounts of time with the Father. The more time I spent with Him, the more I got delivered.
People say they are reading the Word of God, they say they love God, they tell others they are good people. But they are so defeated in their lives, whether it is in their marriages, their children or within themselves. I am left to wonder where in their lives is the power? Where are the answers that Christ has shown me? Finding out for myself that God listened and answered prayers kept me on a quest for more and more truth. The more I was shown this supernatural healing power, the more I sat at my Father’s feet. I really started to love a God I had only heard of in Sunday school. Once I discovered how much I was being healed, I knew I had to still live on earth and learn to function in a Kingdom life that I didn’t know much about. Knowing I wasn’t well taught at the time, I use to carry a Bible with me everywhere I went. I looked back and see that this helped keep me in line until I had the time to get back in the Word to learn more about God and His Kingdom ways. It didn’t all come at once. It came little by little. All it would take would be one glance at that Bible I carried with me, and I would keep my mouth shut in a tense situation. I would go the extra mile for others and it literally helped me get through each and every day in victory. My suggestion to you? Start carrying a Bible with you if you feel you are weak. If you aren’t allowed to carry a Bible to work, put it in your car on the passenger seat or you can keep a tiny one in your purse and pull it out when you feel like you are slipping. You might be looking in your purse 100 times a day at first, but so what? You have to learn that there is a Kingdom available to you 24/7 but YOU have to want it and you have to learn to walk in it everyday not just on Sunday. Just because you can’t see the Kingdom doesn’t mean that it’s not there. You can’t touch hope but when you don’t have any, you know it don’t you?
The Bible teaches to train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he won’t depart. Thank God I went to Sunday school and sat in church but it is not enough to gain the victory in your everyday life. My life was preordained to be the way it was. I “walked through” the hell to get the tangible experience for you. Now all you have to do is listen and receive it.
The Bible says to train your child in the ways of the Lord. This does not mean that they are to be dropped off at youth group to play games and sing songs. I will never forget the time I let my daughter go to youth group with a friend and I asked her if she wanted to join the church and youth group. She said, “ Mom, believe me, you don’t want me going there.” Knowing my daughter the way I do, I knew she was telling me the truth but I really didn’t fully understand it at the time because I was lacking. Doesn’t every cross on a building indicate Jesus lives there? All is not well with every Body of believers who say Jesus. Many have no idea of the delivering, healing power through the anointing of Christ…Kingdom life.
A lot of adults seem to be good people but they are not putting into practice the things of God. Either they have not been taught about them or they don’t believe they exist. For example, one of the basic things in the Word of God is not to gossip. When I have a Christian try to talk about other people to me, I stop them. That is just one little example, but if you are not faithful in the little, God is not going to give or reveal to you more. God is watching and Kingdom life is too precious for me to give up by talking about others. There are people who claim to be Christians, yet are bigoted and think it is okay to gossip…it is not okay in God’s eyes. We are so use to taking other people’s word for what is in the Word because we either think we don’t have the time or we are too lazy to get in there and find out for ourselves what is in there. This is YOUR life that is at stake not your Pastors or your neighbors.
We are not taking what is in the Word and then trying to put what we are learning into practice in our everyday lives. WE say and tell others how good we are and then we cry out for help because our home, families and finances are falling apart. WE suffer. WE are going to conferences spending money to learn, then we leave and things go right back the way they were. There is a disconnect. You have to have the tools in which to fight. We are in a fight and Satan has no regard for human life. The sooner we grasp this the better it is going to be for us. This is a clarion call to everyone. The Bible teaches that The Kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force. Most of us do not realize or don’t want to admit that we are fighting an adversary. We have no clue about him or his wiley ways. It is time for us to rise up and take what is rightfully ours by inheritance.
We go to church and serve the church and sing and holler, we clean and sell, but we don’t know how to worship the true, living God. We don’t know a lot about God and His ways, much less the Kingdom life that is ours for the asking. Didn’t Jesus say that between Mary and Martha, Mary had picked the better way? (Molly’s explanation) Learn about Kingdom life. (Luke 10:38-42)
I had someone tell me that I was not going to lay my hands on anyone and exorcise their child. Well, a lot of children I have been around need to have that done. You need to learn how to fast, pray, and make offerings to the Lord. You need to learn that there are generational curses. You need to learn that these sometimes need to be broken off you and your children. This is a Kingdom principle.
When people call me or cry out to me sobbing because their lives are not good, they are the ones who are going to have to do something. I can only do what the Lord releases me to do. We want quick answers, quick fixes and instantaneous results so we can go back to our lives….but that is not always God and Kingdom life.
God wants to give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven but I can tell you that these keys are golden and not everyone will attain them, either because of disbelief or their lack of wanting to get them. It will cost you something to have Kingdom of Heaven life. Are you willing to go after it? Are you willing to pay the price? The Kingdom of Heaven is within you and it is not impossible to get to, but you are going to have to be the one to go there….one rung at a time. The Holy Spirit will guide you when you come to a missing rung if you ask Him. Jesuswithoutthejunk has come at this time to help you place those rungs that are missing, but you will have to be the one to step up…..
God bless you,
