“The Kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed; …Behold, the Kingdom of God is in your midst.” Luke 17:20-21
Many of us wonder about that statement, because we do not have “ears to hear,” or let me say, we just don’t get it! We don’t understand.
Jesus was all about signs and wonders, while He was living on earth as a man. But then He said: “The Kingdom of God is right here, right now, in your midst.” Do you understand that?
The Kingdom of God is not like the Kingdom of England, or Thailand. You can point on a map and show someone where they are located. Well, if you understand, the Kingdom of God; it is “God’s rule in my life.” So if I am standing in your midst, in your presence, and I say, “The Kingdom of God is at hand,” and I have God’s rule in my life, and He is in me, then He is in your presence as well(if I am in your presence).
Jesus said, “If you have ears, …….do you hear? If you have eyes, ….do you see. A blind man has eyes, but cannot see. A deaf person has ears but cannot hear. Like mama said, “You need to clean your ears out boy…girl! I said, ‘Take out the garbage’.”
The Kingdom of God is right here, right now, in your midst, but in order to see it, or to hear it, you need to be willing to open yourself up to it. Maybe that is what you need to work on.
Don’t wait….if you can see you need something, don’t wait or it might not be available any longer. The other day, I was looking to get a hotel room, and I waited until the next day, and when I came back to the site, it was not available for the price I wanted
If you have ears…….. If you have eyes…………..
So it is my eye, and my ear that have the control over my being. I make the decision…I make a choice about it.
On My Father’s Business, all eyes and ears!
