Come Up Now!

Many of us have been struck by what must be the meaning of the Savior’s words “the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:21).” The words may seem cryptic, but when combined with other statements of the King (e.g., “My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence” (John 18:36)) they must be understood as a refutation of any proposed establishment of a physical kingdom upon the face of a world cursed by Almighty God.

How then are we to understand this kingdom that came with the Christ? This kingdom that was “at hand” over 2000 years ago – this kingdom that Jesus affirmed had come when he said “if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you (Luke 11:20).”

It must be something different. It must be something other than the normal “kingdom” that we as men expect to see. The normal kingdom of this world does send its servants to fight when its king is threatened.

What if Jesus meant what He said when He said, “the kingdom of God is within you?” What if the kingdom of God (that kingdom which the saints of God enter when they swear allegiance to its King) is an invisible, ethereal, other-worldly, mystical kingdom that only those who have entered can understand?

The Militant Pacifist asserts that indeed, this is the case. The kingdom of God is not seen with the physical eyes of men. It is not merely trans-national, it is supra-national.

The Christian is to be so concerned with this kingdom and allegiance to the true King, that all other allegiances pale in comparison.

So when the question is asked – “where is your citizenship?” – the Christian should reply with the Apostle Paul – “our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20 NKJV).”

Friend – the kingdom has come! Bow to King Jesus! Don’t wait for heaven – enjoy His peaceful reign NOW!

Anti-War...yes, but...

Pretty good quote from a great economist...The Militant Pacifist

"It is staggering that anyone could be so self-infatuated as to single out their own particular policy preferences as 'anti-war.' Anyone who is not a sadist or an idiot is anti-war. The only serious issue is how best to limit, deter or conclude war. But responsibility for confronting this issue is evaded by those preoccupied with the moral preening of being 'anti-war.'"

For the Christian, (the Militant Pacifist claims the status "Christian") there is but one ultimate authority – and this is Jesus Christ (God). The kingdom of Christ is a monarchy, and Jesus Christ reigns as King over all who have been made citizens of His kingdom. Hence, all Christians are obliged to obey their King. Any assertion to the contrary is rebellion.

In His absolute invisible and creatorial sovereignty, Jesus Christ reigns as King of kings, and Lord of lords. For the Christian, all worldly authorities are inferior to King Jesus. There can be no other King (authority) before Him.

King Jesus teaches that His kingdom is not “of this world.” Hence, consistent obedience to King Jesus immediately brings to the fore the conflicting demands of “worldly” authorities.

Since for the Christian, there is but one ultimate authority – the demands or commands of lesser authorities must ever be evaluated in light of the greater. Following any such evaluation, the Christian must always grant precedence to the greater.

Hence, it is expected that the Christian will be a worldly law-breaker.
