Those Who Take the Kingdom of Heaven by Force

January 18, 2007

God did away with the wall of sin between God and men once for all by Christ’s blood, and there is no longer any sacrifice for sin. God’s is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

If they have received freely but don’t give freely, they are not children of God. Those who have received love freely and give it freely are the children of God in whom Christ is formed.

Therefore, those who love each other as he has loved them will inherit the kingdom of God.

The kingdom of God is the place where those who have received love love each other. It is not for those who only receive love. This new commandment will be forever in a new heaven and a new earth.

It is written, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34).

Therefore, in the kingdom of heaven remains the saved people who give love, not the people who just receive love. It is written, “But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.” (2 Peter 3:13).

All faith is not true. Living faith is true: in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith. It is written, “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.'” (Romans 1:17). In the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith.

If freely received love does not lead to freely giving love, the result is autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted, twice dead. In this case, the fruit has not been produced, though the seed was given. It is written, “These men are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm–shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted–twice dead.” (Jude 1:12).

Therefore, the eternal gospel that should be preached again is about salvation related to giving love, not receiving love. Those who know love-receiving salvation may enter the Holy Place, but only those who work out love-giving salvation can enter the Most Holy Place with Christ.

The Lord, the firstfruits, said, “For many are invited, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14). The kingdom of God is not a old heaven and a old earth, the home of sin, but it is a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.

Righteousness is not just words. Righteousness which is fulfilled is true righteousness. If a man believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, righteousness is fulfilled by the faith. If righteousness is not fulfilled, the faith is not fully assured faith in the Word of God, but it is false faith in the word of men.

The Bible says, “Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.” (Romans 10:4).

When faith is accounted for righteousness, the faith is living faith which fulfills righteousness, not dead faith. It is written, “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3).

If we have been forgiven debts, we should also forgive our debtors. That is the result of the forgiveness of sins–the gospel. The Lord said, “Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12).

Therefore, the kingdom of God is not for those who have only received God’s love for all men. It is for those who give God’s love to all men as they have received it.

The Bible says about it, “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” (Hebrews 12:14). There is peace where the new man is. There is holiness where the old man is not. Thank you, Lord.
