The Church and The Kingdom of God

This document contrasts the Denominational Church and the assemblies that belong to The Kingdom of God

The denominational church refers to Christians who identify as a member of a denomination.

The Kingdom of God refers to the assembly of its citizens which meet for the purposes of The Kingdom of God.

Just because you belong to a denomination does not mean you belong to The Kingdom of God and thus have salvation.

The denomination normally follows its agendas and purposes which are designed to perpetuate the denomination and its purposes.

The citizens of The Kingdom of God promote the purposes of the King and His Kingdom

In the early church the state and the Kingdom of God were separate but merged when the Roman Catholic pope took over the Roman empire. This resulted in the equivalent of the structure of man’s kingdoms infiltrating the church

The reformation changed this but resulted in a Nicolaitan type structure where the ministers rule the church and the congregation do what they are told to do by them. This is why you have to be officially approved or credited by the denomination to be able to minister for the denomination and supposedly for Jesus.

In the Kingdom of God everyone is supposed to minister for Jesus in some way and The Holy Spirit guides and teaches people to do the role they are called to at that time.

In the denomination you are trained by them to serve the purposes of the denomination which also includes their doctrine which times is not Biblical.

An example is the acceptance of homosexuality in their churches by some denominations.

In the body of Christ, you are discipled - and promote Jesus, His Kingdom and its doctrines.

When you become a Christian, you are asked to join the denomination.  You are already a citizen of The Kingdom of God but this is ignored for the purposes of the denomination.

Your membership in The Kingdom of God is not told to you as it is usually not even considered as the denomination is so important to those leading you to God. In the Kingdom of God everyone is supposed to minister for Jesus and their purpose is to get you into The Kingdom of God and teach you the relationship you have with The Father and Jesus guided by The Holy Spirit of which Lordship preserves these relationships.

 In the denomination you are trained by them and only then are you allowed to represent the denomination in any ministry and in doing so you serve the purposes of the denomination which also includes their doctrine which at times is not Biblical.

In the body of Christ, you are discipled - and promote Jesus, His Kingdom and its doctrines.

When the church and state became one the church thought it was the Kingdom of God and the real kingdom of God was hidden.

The reformation did not restore the true Kingdom of God so that today many in the denominations believe they belong to the Kingdom of God when they really only belong to the denominator doing what the denominations say they should be doing.

Jesus said His people would

Proclaim the Gospel

Heal the sick

Cast out demons

Defend His Name, His Kingdom and His values

Do His will in all things

Honour Him in all they do and

Not pay trained people to do it for them!

The denominations qualify people to do some of these things and pay them to do them unlike the early church where everything was voluntary out of Love for Jesus and not reward.

The members of the Kingdom of God train all its members to these things and does not teach you arfe paid to do them.

Denominations divide the Kingdom of God  as each seeks to maintain the denomination and churches in the denomination do not even help each other usually  or help or work with churches in other denominations to do the-work of Jesus.

Members of the Kingdom of God help each and have as their common purpose the work of Jesus and His Kingdom being unified by the Holy Spirit being common to all of them.

Denominations usually do not show God’s Love to other denominations and by this show they do not belong to God as the expression of the relationship Christians have with God is His quality of Love being shown in all they do.

 Denominations are a master stroke of Satan, as they divide the Body of Christ and until they recognize this, they will never really do the work of the Kingdom of God.

You say this talk does not describe your denomination or church?

Then ask yourself, when was the last time you worked with another church in your denomination or even outside of your denomination to do the work of The Kingdom?
