The Kingdom of Heaven
Matthew 11:11 “Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.”
I never really understood the above Scripture until now. I now realize why we, Christians need to be violent in our prayer life and our spiritual warfare.
Since moving to Regent Park/Glen Ridge (the Old Heritage USA Property) in 2005; I have been under a tremendous attack spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally and psychologically.
However, to the glory of God; there is life after gang stalking. I am much stronger, smarter and closer to The Lord Jesus Christ than ever before. Hallelujah!
I came here to try and work among people who I thought were my Christian friends, but very soon; I found out that they had slandered my name, and caused people to think that I was their enemy.
The main two that caused this onslaught were a couple who call themselves an Elder and a Prophetess. The Elder is involved in what is called an international movement here in Regent Park.
I guess I was very naive and gullible, but I actually thought these were normal, decent people before the gang stalking started. The Prophetess tried to run me off of the road into the left side oncoming travel the very first time that I went to Pineville, NC, and it has been a constant attempt to destroy me in various and sundry methods since that time.
These are people who have infiltrated the church, and they are actually witches, warlocks, satanists, sorcerers, coven, cult and secret society members. Everything that they do is carefully whitewashed and concealed.
They get their money from illegal racketeering and defrauding innocent people so that they can pay the perpetrators who do their dirty work. They use their church connection to launder the money, and to have a “front” for all of their activities.
I was a missionary in Seoul, Korea for some 13 years, and if anyone would have warned me about gang stalking; I’m sure I would have had a hard time understanding it or believing that it could happen in my beloved country of America.
What is the point; you may ask? The point is that I have had to learn to be violent in my prayer life because I am standing alone here. However, a Christian is never alone, and with The Lord on my side; my victory is evident. The Lord always causes His people to triumph.
My main objective is to stay very focused on the Lord, and not to think about the sadistic activities of people who claim to be Christian, but are ravenous wolves. I know now why Jesus will spew these hypocrites out of His mouth in due time.
Matthew 11:11-12, talks about the Kingdom of Heaven. What “is” The Kingdom of Heaven exactly?
The Kingdom of Heaven is also The Kingdom of God, and encompasses the blessings of God.
The word “Kingdom” is mentioned 126 times in the Gospels of Jesus Christ.
The Kingdom is where the King Jesus Christ reigns and rules.
A prerequisite for entering into The Kingdom of God or heaven is to be born again. Remember when Nicodemus asked Jesus how to enter The Kingdom of God?
John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
Jesus very kindly told Nicodemus that being born again was of the spirit. It is a supernatural experience totally provided by The Holy Spirit as we seek Jesus’ Kingdom first and His righteousness with all of our hearts.
John 3:7 “The Lord told Nicodemus that Ye must be born again. 8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”
Receiving the Holy Spirit is a glorious experience, but then the cares of life and the thorns of other Christians and the lack of prayer, Bible study and godly fellowship can cause our fire to slowly dwindle.
However, if we want to be on fire for the Lord and if we want to take our family members, friends, neighbors and everyone that we know to heaven with us; it will be a real battle. Don’t worry though; Jesus Christ has already won the war on cross.
If you want to be a lukewarm Christian with one foot in the things of God and one foot in the things of the world; you will probably never experience the need to do violence against the kingdom of darkness, Satan and his dupes.
However, those that try and gain the whole world will lose their souls, unless they repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ. You can’t have both lives. You will either serve God or mammon.
If you love the world and its evil empire system; then you cannot be a viable member of The Kingdom of God. You cannot have two masters as you will either hate the one and love the other or the other way around.
Those that are still trying to please man; cannot be the bond servants of The Lord Jesus Christ.
A double minded man is unstable in all of his ways.
Jesus gave His disciples the model prayer; He prayed that God’s Kingdom come and His will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. This tells it all in a few words.
The Lord wants to bring the Kingdom of God and heaven to earth. He want the Christians to take the earth over for His Kingdom, honor and glory. How? Because Christ in us is the hope of glory.
God wants His glory to be manifest on this earth through Him. He is the King of all kings and He is the Lord of all lords. It is our job to put Him in His rightful place on this earth.
How do we do that? It is clearly a spiritual battle as opposed to Joshua and Caleb who took the territory physically.
Our work is set before us. We must take the Kingdom of Heaven by force. We have to use force and violence because Satan has been trying to steal The Kingdom of God from the Garden of Eden.
We, God’s people, need to take back the territory that the enemy has stolen by lies, deceit, trickery, treachery, and every evil power imaginable. Ephesians 6 tells us the armor we must put on every single day in order to combat and wrestle with our adversary the devil and his cohorts.
Without, the full armor of God; we are without the necessary weaponry, shield, helmet, belt, breastplate, shoes, sword and without the Holy Spirit; we cannot pray in the Holy Spirit which releases the power of almighty God to work for the Kingdom of God and His glorious purposes.
Being gang stalked has taught me many things, but one thing is clear; God is far greater than all of the enemies devices put together. The enemy of our souls is just one big bully, and all of his bravado is fake and without substance.
I have also learned that Satan is not very smart because he doesn’t know what he is doing.
When the authorities and the religious folk had Jesus tortured and killed because of envy; they had no idea what they were doing.
1 Cor. 2:6 “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to naught: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
If they had any idea what they were doing; they would have never implemented the magnificent and glorious plan of our all-powerful God. What a shock it must have been when they eventually figured out that they had done the very thing that God would use to save His people from their sins and from an eternity lost in hell.
I sometimes laugh at the sheer arrogance of the enemy, as that is what always gets him in trouble. He is always overconfident for no reason.
Satan tries to destroy the true Christian by taking away all that is dear to them as he did with Job, and as he tried to do with countless over saints. Satan hates those who love Jesus.
All those who try to live a godly life “will” come under Satans’ wrath, but don’t be concerned; he is a sissy. He is afraid of his own shadow, and the only way that he can ever succeed is if we back down, are fearful, and/or acquiesce to his trumped up powers.
How does he get his powers? By killing innocent animals, babies, children, adults and wrecking havoc wherever he can get by with it. The Mayan civilization was deep into sacrificing, and their empire had to be destroyed by our God.
Every civilization that heeds the temptations and ways of Satan will fall. Let’s not be one of them.
Let’s take back our country for God’s Kingdom, as this country was founded on Jesus Christ and The Gospel. All authority in heaven and earth was given to Jesus Christ, and it has in turn been given to God’s people.
We can tread on the enemy, and he is under our feet. Hallelujah! Don’t ever be deceived by the enemy’s lies and tricks. He has been defeated, but we need to believe, understand it, and work in it.
Luke 10:29 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
The men, women and children of God need to wake up, rise up and take over our territory for the Kingdom of God. We have the power of The Holy Spirit, the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, and we have the mandate to occupy until The Lord Jesus Christ returns.
We, God’s beloved people are more than victorious through Jesus Christ. In my darkness days during this gang stalking; The Lord was with me very closely.
Romans 8:37, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Dear Saints of God, always remember that in the darkness times; The Lord is there giving us His love, His joy, and His peace. Paul and Silas were given a great earthquake as they were praising the Lord in prison.
I have found during this most difficult time in my life; that in the most horrific times; He is with us the greatest, and He manifests His love, joy, peace, and power according to what we need at the time. He is our Magnificent, Omnipotent, All-Knowing, Omnipresent precious Savior and Lord. His Name is Jesus, and when you turn everything over to Him; He will always cause you to triumph over any and every circumstance that you will ever have to go through.
