Matthew 13:47-51 (KJV)
47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
Daniel 7:18 (NIV) – But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever—yes, for ever and ever.’
When you receive the Kingdom of God into your life, everything you have ever learned and taken to heart is separated. The wicked is cast out. Only the good remains. A clean heart and new life in Christ are what become you. Hallelujah!
Isaiah 57:15 (KJV) – For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
This Righteousness indwelling is by Faith in the Holy One to have His way with your life, a living sacrifice. A contrite spirit before God is necessary to receive the Kingdom.
It is often a struggle to let go of the former. By Faith we must take that step and allow God to make us into who we are in His Will.
The physical body is a reflection of what is not seen. People will see a change when we acquire the Kingdom. The fruit of His Holy Spirit will manifest in your daily walk (love, joy, gentleness, self-control…..)
Romans 4:13 (NIV) – It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.
Hebrews 11:1-2 (KJV) – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Matthew 13:58 (NIV) – And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.
When Jesus taught the parable of net, many did not believe. Join, today, the believers in Christ and allow the Kingdom of God to cleanse you and make you righteous.
