Kingdom of Heaven
is government of serving

The Kingdom of Heaven is not made up of lordship. The Kingdom of Heaven is made up of serving. There is only service in the Kingdom of Heaven.70 Galatians 5:13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. You cannot serve both governments. You cannot serve both a government of lordship, as the States are doing today, and the Kingdom of Heaven, which is a government of service.

I always thought it was strange to hear a police officer say, "I'm a Christian." He lords it over others. He brings people under the lordship of the law - the laws of men. Then he turns around and says, "I'm a servant of Christ, I'm of the Kingdom of Heaven." I say, "HYPOCRISY!" He can't do both jobs. He can't be a police officer for the world, and a servant in the Kingdom of Heaven. He does to others what he would not want done to himself.71 Matthew 23:4 "For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers." The State and all of its institutions do the same. The courts are the gateway of hell. Judges routinely do to others what they would not want done to themselves. But they justify their actions. They even kill Christians. They take the lives of Christians, locking them in jail, because the Christians wouldn't seek permission from their god. They perform violence upon the Kingdom of Heaven.72 Zephaniah 3:3-4 Her princes in her midst are roaring lions; Her judges are evening wolves That leave not a bone till morning. Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; Her priests have polluted the sanctuary, They have done violence to the law. Violence upon the children of God. Violence upon Christ's servants. Violence upon the Gospel.73 Matthew 23:29-34 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, 'If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.' Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers' guilt. Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city."

I've written many letters to the Governor of the State making them aware of their violent acts against the Church of Jesus Christ.74 Matthew 23:37-39 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!'" I have never received one letter to date acknowledging or apologizing or correcting their violence upon the Embassy of Heaven Church. What communion has light with darkness?75 2 Corinthians 6:14-15 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? The darkness is afraid of the light, and will not come to the light. The State will not admit that it is a government of violence. Everyone I know involved with the State fears the State because it is a government of violence, it is a government of lordship. Lordship is the beginning stage of violence. If we are brothers and sisters in Christ, there is not violence, but love - we help one another.76 Galatians 6:2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. But if we practice lordship it leads to violence, it leads to hardship, it leads to hate, it leads to killing.77 James 1:15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Now take this word and look at your life. Take a look at what you worship. What governments do you participate in? What governments do you flee from? Choose today whom you shall serve.78 Joshua 24:15 "And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." You cannot serve both. You will either serve the kingdoms of the world or you will serve the Kingdom of Heaven. And the world will persecute heaven, but heaven will forgive the world.79 Luke 23:33-34 And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left. Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do." And they divided His garments and cast lots. In His Name we pray. Amen.80 Philippians 2:9-11 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
