Kingdom Citizenship by kpakpandoN(m): 9:34am On May 14, 2020
In John 3:5, Nicodemus did not ask Jesus to tell him how he could enter the Kingdom of God; he merely praised Him. However, Jesus knew that Nicodemus needed to be shown, like us all, how to get to Heaven, so He said “... verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Jesus knew that any praise that would lead to the Kingdom of God must be packaged in the garment of salvation. He once told His audience.
“Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
Matthew 7:21

Beloved, have you been blown away by the recent wind of liberalism? Have you been engaging in endless arguments on what is or what is not true about the Kingdom of God and the hope of eternal life? It will do you no good.

Some argue that being born again may not be immediately evident – forgetting that the Bible says “by their fruits ye shall know them” (Matthew 7:20). This confirm that being born again has to be evident.

Jesus queried in Luke 6:46: “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” Our citizenship in the kingdom of Heaven is based on obedience to the Kingdom ‘constitution’ – the Bible. Anyone who says the Bible is outdated is obviously no longer a citizen of the Kingdom.

1st John 3:7 says he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. Hence, answering Biblical names or ministerial titles are not requirements for being a Kingdom citizen, rather, regeneration and a new life of holiness in Christ are.

Are you a citizen of the kingdom of God?
