36. Kingdom culture.
"But seek first the Kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well." (Matthew 6:33) Since the Kingdom of God was revealed on earth, it has been 'forcefully advancing and forceful men lay hold of it' ( Matthew 11:12). Many have forced their way into the Kingdom but there are still many who haven't entered though they were predestined to be saved.They must seek to enter the Kingdom immediately before immigration stops! As for those who have entered, they ought to live like Kingdom citizens. Just as nations on earth have their own traditional attires and languages, so also the Kingdom of God! The citizens of God's kingdom wear the robes of righteousness and speaks the language of love. The citizens of the Kingdom are also entitled to certain privileges and it promises to take care of all its citizens while they are his ambassadors on earth. "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat and drink or about your body, what you will wear... your heavenly Father knows that you need them." (Vs 25-32) Moreover, the King has promised to evacuate the citizens by Rapture in the event of a world wide tribulation. Therefore, those who haven't entered yet must immediately seek to become citizens before its too late whereas those who have already entered ought to display the kingdom culture. The mission of the Church is to establish his Kingdom on earth. "Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Amen.
