Hello all you dear citizens of The Kingdom of Heaven, where ever you may be. I’m Michael Angel, the Chief Information Officer of Kingdom of Heaven’s Ministry of Training and Education. At the request of the king, I’m sending you now this news release to encourage and strengthen you all, even the weakest ones. You understand how society’s spiritual climate is becoming colder around citizens towards our cause. Public officers and politicians want to dictate what we’re allowed to say, and what not. They also want to determine the limits of appropriation, what is love, what isn’t, etc. We’re flexible in various things but, in this, we can’t give in. We obey and carry out the will and order of the king of kings to proclaim the good message: “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Mat. 28:18-20) He’s the ruler of the eternal kingdom, not the rulers and public officers of the present world, who come and go all the time. He remains forever, and we with him.
Already before the foundation of the world, the collective trio of rulers, being in perfect unity, had made the decision to gather dispersed people. For people had no chance at all to enter the kingdom of the great king by their own efforts because of their sinfulness. A payment was needed, which would guarantee the release of sins, and that was paid on a place named Calvary. Accepting, believing and carrying it out in one’s life is the sign of the new birth: “Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” (John 3:5) In these things, people don’t have their own merits but everything comes from above. A person, who believes and fulfills the criteria, mensioned above, gets involved in divine care. In the Ministry, we’re calling this process ‘The King Project’. You can be assured, that the king always brings all his projects to completion. You can have complete peace of mind and rest in his grace, on his promises: “All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day.” (John 6:37-39)
Citizens must be realists in regard to their walk. There surely will be troubles and predicaments on the way. Another promise made by the king must be remembered in such situations. He is committed to safeguarding the spiritual well-being of his citizens according to his own resources. We understand that they are considerable and he always does a perfect job: “but he holds his priest hood permanently, because he continues forever. Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.” (Heb. 7:24-26) Unlike in human life, for the great king nothing is transient or fleeting because he remains forever. Trust in the promises of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Heaven, its rights and duties, and their implementation is what we call building on the rock. This kind of action is particularly pleasing to the king. It takes a little effort, of course, but it’s worth it. But one doesn’t have to make it in own strength though. Citizens have a resource what native English speakers call ‘The Spirit Factor’ at their disposal: “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” (Phil. 2:12-13)
The Spirit Factor has other features and functions, too. All the features and functions are vital for raising a citizen into the value system of The Kingdom of Heaven. The king works, within the framework of his project, with his full strength and authority for the benefit of its citizens. Citizens can put their full trust in the project launched by the king and grow, amidst hardship and even persecution, towards his likeness and his inheritance: “So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.” (Rom. 8:12-17) I wish citizens moments of graceful growth. If someone falls into sin, he can, confessing his sin, rise again and joyfully continue his journey. I hope to see you all one day in the Kingdom of Heaven, in a new state of being.
With project greetings
